The Roundup Record'
A. W. EISELEIN, Editor and Pub. Entered as second elate matter June 6, 1908, at the post office at Roundup, Montana, under the Act of March 3, 1879. Published every Friday at Roundup, Montana. SUBSCRIPTION RATES. Per year, $2.00, strictly in advance; 93.60 if not so paid. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8. 1912. LET'S FORGET OUR DIFFERENCES. The big battle of ballots is all over now and the people of the country will once more settle down to the pursuit of their individual business enterprises with no apparent change in chances for material success, altho for the past few months we have been warned and threatened by "spellbinders" that there was only one safe way and that all other routes meant disaster. The country has gone overwhelmingly Dem ocratic, state and nation, while here in Musselshell county the Republicans were singularly successful in electing a majority of their candidates with a split in their ranks to contend with. The Record does not think that the new administration is going to bring about a panic or hard times or any thing of that sort, unless Mr. Wilson goeB to experimenting on us too much, and then you can't tell what is going to happen. The last chance the Demo crats had to run the governmental machinery they made a dismal failure of it, and they do not do any better than they did the last time they might | as well quit and give the old donkey a dose of rough on rats. What will eventually be the result of the big split in the Republican party Is at this time a difficult thing to pre diet. From the returns in this state and county it appears that many people voted for Roosevelt merely on bis personality and then switched back into the Republican column. If an amalgamation of the two parties, Republican and Progressive, can be effected during the next four years, success can once more be easily attain ed. A political campaign necessarily engenders differences between suport ers of different candidates and parties, in many cases good friends being temporarily drawn apart during the heat of battle. Now that everything is over with let us forget all about these differences and get together once more and work in unison for the up building of our city, county and state, for their certainly is no difference in opinion that we are living in the best state in the union, the richest county in the state, and the most promising and progressive little city in the whole world. Let's shake hands over the result whether we lost or won, put our Shoulders to the wheels of progress and push all the harder for the advancement of Roundup, Musselshell county and the great Treasure State. The Record does not believe that Miss Nelson, the Democratic candidate for county superintendent of schools, was responsible for the publication of certain charges against Miss Griffin on the morning of election. It was no doubt printed at the behest of some over-zealous friend who thought he was advancing her candidacy when in fact he injured her to a great extent. -o W. G. Jarrett, who was re-elected to fill the office of clerk of the district court for the next four years, can thank the Tribune for swelling his plurality. It has been aptly remarked that if anyone wants to go to hades all he ha s to do is to get the Tribune to boost him as a Sunday school teacher. The Record takes considerable pride in having assisted in electing ten out of fifteen of its candidates, with a chance of pulling thru another.
