II. E. Church Notes There will be no preaching at the Methodist church next Sabbath the 11th inst. .! A CANCEROUS POLITICAL PARTY UNDER THE KNIFE There is at least one strange fact con nected with"thejrecent election, which every republican of the land should ponder aobberly and well. It is that Republican Headquarters in New York REJOICED WITH TAM,MA NY over the democratic victory iu that state. It is literally true that joy and happiness reigned supreme at the head quarters of the Grand Old Party when the news came that the democrats had swept the state. Here is a nut for republicans to crack. It is as hard as another one, noted some time ago, that Spealor Cannon, when about to be deposed by the Progressive of his own party, called upon Tamma ny for help AND GOT IT. In the recent case it seems quite plain ly evident that the republican macjhine in New York had turned traitor and joined forces with Tammany, and that the two machines had worked together for the overthrow of the ticket which was supported by Mr. Roosevelt. Now, other things may be corrupt, bnt Tammany is corruption other things may be abdmiuable, but Tam many is abomination.. It stands for plunder of the public treasury, for the most shameless graft, for legalized pil lage in high places. It supports the predatory interests. It serves Special Privilege, which is waxing fat oft* the American people. Tammany is a stench in the nostrils of the American nation. Yet this is the sort of alliance which tehe stand pat machine in New York chose to make. It proves clearly the perfidy and dishonor of the republican organization of the greatest state in the Union, It haS become-plain that the pro gressive wing of the republican party is really struggling for a principle that is "true and righteous altogether," and that the foaces which oppose it are uni ting under the SAME BLACK FLAG, ir respective of party ties or names. We need not be deceived. Unless progressive republicanism triumps, the republican party is doomed. Standpat* tism could not come OPENLY before the people and survive an election. If American voters ever get a chance at it, their vengeance will be swift and terrible, and it will be extirpated for good and all. Will someone try to in duce Mr. Aldrich to run for president, if there is any doubt on this scorc? Standpattism is a "cancer" that haS fastened itself upon the republican par ty. It may be incurable, but if so, the party must die. Already the sore is slonghiug, and people are turning from it with loathing. It seems to be a case for the surgeon's knife, and th? opera tion must be deep to be successful. Be ing interpreted, the recent electloh ap pears jobea crude attempt ou the part of the American people to perform s&d operation themselves. It was unsteilMNt it c.me near some vital organs, but tlx# patient survived. The trouble is ttiaf, as is often the case, the disease is rcJa^' pearing. Witness Lafe Young, candi date for the United States Senate from Iowa. Alfalfa Mr. Scott Herrick, living out on "Irish Ridge" brought to our deak a sample of his last cutting of Alfal fa, it being the fourth clip for this year. Mr. Herrick is very enthusi astic about alfalfa saying that the four cutting yielded 3 tons to the acre of very choice bay.
