VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.

—En. IRISH STANDAUD.]
The County Auditor-ship.
To the Editor of The Irish Standard
In this issue of your valuable paper,
as an Irish Republican, I ask for a
hearing. THE STANDARD, though
Democratic in politics, has never failed
to be just and fair in its dealings with
men and matters. Responsible always
for what I say, I desire at this time to
point out to the Republican party some
of the reasons why it should tender the
nomination of county auditor to William
Francis McCarthy. To betrin with, he
is a young Irish Republican who, by
hard work among this element, has
changed the politics of many of them
ftom the Democratic ranks. He has
to a great extent been the means of
turning the attention of our people to
the Republican party. A9 an instance
of this we might mention the campaign
of the fall of '83, when Hubbard ran for
governor, when, because of the Scan
dinavian defection to Bierman, it was
feared that Hubbard would be defeated.
Mr. McCarthy took the matter in hand
•among the Irish of this city and county,
and the result of his labors was at that
time acknowledged by the leading poli
ticians. Two years ago he was a can
didate for this same office, and while
no public canvass was made for the
place the encouragement he received
then has prompted his friends to again
bring him before the convention. By
some it has been argued that, an Irish
man could not receive a respectable
nomination on the Republican ticket.
This I do not believe, and I trust that
tlie Republican convention will forever
silence this argument by nominating
W. F. McCarthy. An attempt has
lately been made to slui Mr. McCarthy
because he was a working man. This
was fittingly answered by Mr. McCar
thy himself and needs no further
answer from me. As to his ability
there is no question. After leaving the
State University he was connected
with tlie wholesale grocery house of
Anthony Kelly and Dunham & John
son for some years and is well versed in
business transactions. As to the argu
ment. advanced by the present auditoi,
"That a new man could not run the of
fice," I pass it bv it needs no answer.
I understand it was given out for the
purpose of strengthening the present
deputy auditor's chances, in which case
I cannot see how the nomination of
Condit will strengthen it. I do, how
ever, see how the name of W. F. Mc
Carthy will add materially to the Re
publican ticket. A good deal of inter
est has been aroused among the Irish of
this city regarding Mr. McCarthy's
nomination, and the Republicans have
it in their power to change tbe views of
many of our people regarding the feel
ing of Republicans towards our race.
In conclusion, I do not hesitate to
say that should W. F. McCarthy be the
Republican nominee for county auditor
he will add such strength to the ticket
as vvill insure its success entire.
