(Continued from page three.) and to win we must get this vote, and to get this vote there i9 no al ternative, we must beat the other fellow to it with slush, or he will bea us to it, we are fighting the devil with fire, and with this reasoning they justify themselves. I say “jus tify,” for a man never does any thing but what he Justifies himself wiih himself, either before or after he does it. No man can be on friendly terms with his conscience otherwise. I believe they are honest in the stand they take, in the statement they make, but I believe they are wrong, dead wrong. I don’t believe it is right to do wrong to win. I believe we have less to fear from the ignorant, illit erate, short-sighted dishonest slushee, than from the intelligent, well educated, far seeing slu8hor. It is dishonest intelligence rather than dishonest ignorance that threatens our body politic in town, county, state and nation. I believe the intelligent slushor who slushes 100 ignorant voters is 100 times as corrupt as each slushee he slushes. This is a simple mathe matical problem. While there doubtless is ignor ance and corruption amongst us, I do not believe these vorters are as corrupt as charged. I don’t believe they are as ignorant and stupid as charged; they show’ a capacity for education; we are edu cating them; they are getting wise, they are getting harder to handle; I am told they are getting more each year for their votes and the situation is growing worse. 1 believe that if we would spend one-half of the money to educate them to good citizenship that we now spend to corrupt them we would do, not only a wise and commend able, but a profitable act. I would not create the impression that I think I posses a monopoly on political integrity. If I did not be lieve that a majority of voters in Cameron county possessed their pro rata of it I would be foolish to waste my time in talk. 1 believe that a very large per centage of men want their govern ment run on a basis of integrity. Even the man who may do things in business that are SHADY desires and demands that his government be honest. But let us drop the matter of po litical integrity and morality and let us consider the slush fund evil from a standpoint of business exped iency, from the standpoint of “Busi ness is business,” which statement “covered a multitude of sins” in the business world. If “Business is Business” let us form a little “Anti-vote buyers as sociation,” or a “non-p<arj;isan anti corruption trust.” If we fear gov ernment interference because of the “restraint of trade” in votes, we could simplify it by all entering into a “gentlemen’s agreement” to dis continue the slush fund, and simply say to this ignorant, corrupt and dangerous cote we hear so much about: Hombre, no more music. money or mescal. we are going to elevate and purify you now by let ting you alone: you can go plum to - the polls and vote as you please, or you can stay away and not vote at all. It is immaterial to us which you do for we are ourselves now re formed. I believe that the 75 per cent of them would continue to vote as they do now, and the 25 per cent having no incentive to vote would drop out. We would save our money and our blushes, if we have any. We can eradicate this terrible evil by this simple business method If we really want to do it, and if we are realy honest in declaring that we are forced to do it, because the other fellow does it. No one can consistently object to it, for if we have not sufficient business ability to grasp the point and enter into the agreement, and sufficient political in tegriy to keep this agreement,s> we certainly have not sufficient business ability and political integrity to handle the affairs of the county and we should run for the brush instead of .for office. It is my intention to contribute to the funds of both parties equally if ihey will accept it: if they will O. K. and send to my office at San Be nito itemized bills for certain legiti mate expenses, such as printing, hall rent for speakers, literature, etc., 1 will pay them with my personal voucher to the amount of $100 for each party, and a list of these items will be furnished to the San Benito Light and the Brownsville Herald for publicaTion. If it is necessary to “fight the devil with fire” thi* method will, if enough voters adopt it, act like a hand gre nade. It would extinguish -the fire and put the devil out of busines. Why contribute to both parties? Because I shall support men in both parties. If men are elected from both parties and serve the public the legitimate expenses of both are of equal interest to me as a voter. I believe that “Regularity” in voting, or in other words “the Party Lash,” is directly and indirectly the cause of almost all the political ills wc are fighting in national politics today. The trusts, combines, syndi cates, monopolies, our llnancial sys tem (now admitted by all parties to be vicious), the high cost of living, railroad abuses, all are due to 'he fact that politicians and a srbsidlzed press have taught regularity, have taught us, that to accomplish any thing we mu*t win, to win we must be regular, to be regular we must vote now and then for MEN and MEASURES we do not like, because no ticket could please everybody, etc., etc. These principals are good, are sound, but to a v/ry limited extent, but we have allowed them to be forced upon us to EXCESS, to the point of ABUSE. These arguments have diverted the people’s mind from measures and men to party until the party lash has become the enemy of good gov ernment. Little by little the people have been led by party love, and blinded by party prejudices to first tolerate and finally accept those measures and those men they were at heart and in mind opposed to, until they have dominated us. They have brought about conditions that are unbearable, but they have gone too far; the worm has turned and thanks to such men as Beveridge, La Fol lette, Roosevelt, Wilson and last, (and in my humble opinion greatest) Bryan. We are going to the polls in November and cast the most free and untrammelled ballot since the civil war. We are going to vote as we think, regardless of party lines; we are now teaching the politicians that we will vote our principals wherever we find them, regardless of party lash, regardless of being “reg ular. I ]iave talked national politics merely to apply the principal of in dependent voting to the Cameron county election. Let us forget this party strife and party prejudice; let us, each individ ually, study privately the two tickets and then “scratch” them so as to vote for the man WE believe are best qualified to give to Cameron county a broad gauged, yet conservative, business administration and who will, during the next two years, use their best efforts to harmonize op posing factions and to interest those people who are now silently declin ing to participate in politics because of the party strife. I believe in good roads! FIRST, such good roads as will increase the profits of the farmer by lessening his hauling expenses. SECOND, such good roads as will furnish ingress and egress for the outside world to the wonders of our county. I be lieve in first looking out for those already here, and second in helping others to come here. I respectfully solicit the votes of tho?e who believe in me and my Ideas, and under my own standard herein expressed. I can but expect those who do not, to vote for my friend and opponent, J. A.
