gjr. r Act f Oonnren of Mnrch S. 1P7.
One Dot far For Year in Advance
The orficlnl Oman or the Republican
Pari v In Knox County.
Should tho new rule proposed
become effective, tho Kepubli
can strength, in delegation, will
in the future be considerably
reduced. It is now proposed
allow national delegates in pro
rata of the number of votes cast
by that party at the last regular
election, and this ruio, if car
ried out, will reduce the repre
sentative strength of this state
by about 2G9& . Heretofore
these delegates were allowed,
two for eacli Congressional Dis
trict and four delegates at large
from the state. Since the Re
publican vote was divided at the
last regular election and we did
not poll our usual strength our
delegation would necessarily be
greatly reduced. This then is
only one of the evils resulting
from the leaving of the party by
thoso who voted for Roosevelt at
the recent election because "he
was just as good a Republican"
as the nominee, and who were
told by the leaders of the Pro
gressives that they could vote as
they pleased and that it would
not effect them in the future.
Another direct stroko at the
freedom of the pres-s is embodied
in tho bill now before the Lower
House at Washington prohibit
ins the advertising of whiskey
and other intoxicating liquors in
We are strongly opposed to the
sale of liquor in any form either
legally or illegally nor would we
carry a liquor advertisement in
any column or the Advocate.
Only last sveek we replied to a
request for advertising rates for
matter of this nature and point
edly refused the same. In this
instance it is not a question as
to whether we align ourselves
with the liquor element or
against them, but it is a ques
tion of rights and freedom ; per
sonal freedom, freedom of the
Should this measure become a
law or be defeated it will not
materially eiract us, but it is
vicious in its conception and no
doubt wonld be declared uncon
stitutional should it over be
come a law and be put into ef
fect. Should this bill ever como
to a vote it is hoped that our
representative will not be de
oeived or influenced by any such
nonsensical sentimentalities
which could in no degree aid tho
temperance cause.
Just what relation tho organi
zation of thn Democrats will
havo with the coming primary
elpction for county officers in
this county remains to bo seen.
Ff.ir enmntime there has been
going the rounds hints that thoro i
would be a fusion between the'
Democrats and tho remaining
Progressives in Knox County in
which an attempt would bo made
ivmaf. Mm n I nnfl from thai
Republicans entirely, but here
tofore tho talk ban been solely
between Individuals and was
not "official . " Tho Progressives
havo no organization in this
county and probably will not
perfect one.
A very prominent Democrat
rent1y eVlfl wbon aiked con-
cerning any fusion between ttie
two parties, that as individuals
thoro would bo no use whatever
to discuss the matter, but be
fore any discussion would tako
placo officially tho Progressives
would havo to bring their organ
ization, to tho leaders of the
Democratic organization and
tlion discuss tho matter.
Sinco the Progressives are not
yet organized nothing moro can
bo learned now than before the
election of tho Democratic
County Chairman and subse
quent organization of the county
but it is almost a certainty that
the Democrats will undortako to
play a part in tho coming Aug
ust primary election.
