We aio lutujmt that this information, which hat at lal penetrated to the alleged intelligence of (hit gen tleman it doubtleat true, and ala, and alack-aday, alto ouch, he it due to have another and a greater thock on next Tuesday night, or on Wednesday, when it "comet to hit knowledge" that a thousand more men who vot ed in the Primary, and who alio supported thr nominees ho have met the disfavor of "Me undt God", have also "actively supported Mr. McBride" to the extent of placing ballots correctly marked for T. W. McRride for County Judi-e of Potter County, in the ballot boxrt of Potter County. O tempore! O moret. 0 mamma! Judge Joiner's Statement (hit is no time for a play upon high anunding wntdi. Rrputrthle men hava made affidavit that thair ballots were not countrd for the man for whom they voted These affidavits art available for the inspection of interested part-es. Judge K. C. Joiner said: "If mattcrt ttated in the pleading! of contestant are true, then the will of a ma jority hat not been secured." Voter of Potter County, this it the air of the Potter County Pure Ballot League: TME MATTKHS .STATKD IN THK Pl.i.ADINCS OF 1 UK t'ONTKS I A N I ARL I RL K, therefore "THE WILL OF A MAJOR- 11 y u s no r r.n.N slcuked." What difference will it make to you. or to ui whrth.-r it is ttated that lh "Will of the majority was thwarted", or that the ' Wil l. OF A MAJORI I Y WAS NOT SECURED ?" This it not a technical scho.J in the uae of language, but a plain, common setiae, everyd ay determination to protect a principle and lo asiure to the people a tle.in, pure, unhampered lalht Judge Joiner is a reputable citien, a lawyer and a judge and none doubt but that he did lhat which appeared to him to be hit whole duty urtder l ie law. Mr debarred the contest under the statute of limitation th-Teby denying thr remedy sought bv the contestant, hut bis love for justice led him to say: "If the matters stated in the pleadings of the tontt slant are true, then the will of a majority has not brrn securrd." Thr vital qurstioni in this isur are: DO 1 1 IF. SEVENTY-1 UKLI. QUALIFIED VOTERS IN BOX NO. 9 SWEAR A LIE, or a IRUIM when th.-v make affidavit? Wr maintain that they swear truly and it is upon thii asauirption that wr arr h.iung our contention at thin time. Technicalitiet have often thwarted princi ple! and wr brieve that the statute of bniilation in (hit cane hat prevented a showing of fraud in open court. Ve have faith in the integrity of thr tevrnly three men who swear that they voted for T. W. McBride, whiks Ike party machinery holds that there were only tisty votes for th" candidate named, the remainder bring counted for W. E. Gee. Who will be allowed an expression through the ballot box, the voters themselves, or the election officers? This is a tofiout matter and we are appealing thr rate to thr entire people for final adjudication. That Fatal Seventy-Three Responsive to numerous requests from qualified voters in Potter County, we herewith tubmit the names of the voten in Precinct No. 9 who twear that they cast their bf Hots for T.

TWe are 73 of these names, McBride was given but 60 votes in this box on the official return. The time is short-Learn how to mark your ballot for "a Clean Election and a Fdir Count" POTTER COUNTY PURE BALLOT LEAGUE Wc call attention to the following closing paragraph of a circular distributed Saturday afternoon bearing the name of J. H. Avery, Chairman of the Potter County Democratic Executive Committee: "It has come to my knowledge that certain nominees of the primary election are actively supporting Mr. McBride; and it is a serious question whether such per sons have A RIGHT TO HAVE THEIR NAMES APPEAR ON THE OFFICIAL BALLOT now being printed for the election next Tuesday; a.id I am taking the matter up with the Attorney-General for a ruling as to whether their names should be erased, and hope to hear from him in TIME FOR ACTION." Referring to the foregoing from Mr. Avery, which is here noticed by reason of the official position he occupies, may we not ask: Have we reached that stage in the political history of Potter County when a citizen must quietly acquiesce in what he knows tc be fraud, simply because he hap pens to be a nominee for office? Must an American citizen forfeit his right to be elected to an office in Potter County, simply because he dares to rebuke aud condemn fraud by working and vot ing against it? Are the political destinies of individuals in the hands of a self constituted guardian, or in the hands of the whole people? This is the real question to be settled n . .1 1 11 . 1 t f B'a al t lie ballot box luesuay. Gag rule was heretofore considered a relic of days long gone. Are we drifting backward into decadence, or is this merely a childish bluff? 1 ll'olitiial Adv ertiement ) 1Z 3
