THE WHISPERING CAMPAIGN
This editorial appeared in the March Bth issue of the Bulletin-Appeal and
is reprinted by request.
Monday primaries will make the first lap in the race of men
who seek to win office in the city government. The primaries are
destined to be close because of the number of good men in the
race. The factions are grouping their allies in a manner to insure
for themselves the desired prestige. In order to cope with the
situation it has been necessary for each party to stand for a plat
form that has for its purpose the betterment of civic as well as
industrial progress. Each must stand the rigid test of public in
spection, which means that the people will give their support to
those men whose integrity is beyond suspicion. The vote of our
group occupies a strategic position in this particular campaign.
That relationship is in the nature of a casting vote. Naturally,
many candidates will seek to purchase our support. This cannot
be done, as it is men and measures, not money and promises, we
will welcome as the executives of the city. In this campaign we
have discovered that our present Mayor is the one and only quali
fied man for our chief executive. His worth to this community
has been established during his past administration. To seek his
superior would be fruitless in this city. This is an established fact
and those who perchance are of the opinion that his opponent may
be of sounder judgment will do well to study the work of this city
under the regime of Mayor Nelson.
When a man establishes himself as opposed to certain tactics,
he will, obviously, make enemies. Those enemies will not hesitate
to resort to all kinds of intrigue to poison the minds of the voters
against this respective candidate. They will seek to influence the
voter against him. This has been done by the opponents of Mayor
Nelson. It has been whispered in the ears of our voters that Mayor
Nelson is a member of the Ku Klux Klan. Not having any sub
stantial proof of the assertion, the whispering method was adopt
ed. The purpose is to inoculate the minds of the voters of our
group with prejudice and that every vote cast for the present
Mayor is a link in the chain to bind them. Knowing the contempt
that every Negro holds for the hooded gang, this sentiment has
been capitalized by designing politicians and whispered to the sup
posed “big chiefs” of our group and is expected to be passed on by
them to their friends. Unfortunately, this has occurred and some
of our leaders have accepted, in good faith, the deliberate lie con
cocted to serve the purpose of an already defeated aggregation
and have talked a thing that has never been proven. If such
propaganda were true it would be pasted on every available bill
board in the city that “Mayor Nelson is a Klansman.” Those who
invented the scheme are afraid to publish that what they know to
be untrue. Instead they used the whispering method to further
their interest.
This malicious assertion has not been taken seriously by the
thinking voters of our group, it has found place in the minds of
those who permit the other fellow to think for them. It is that
man who injures his own progress by advertising hearsay that
has never been proven. Cards have been placed in the hands of
a few of our group and they have been engaged because their in
fluence, with their own voters, would be greater than that of an
outsider. The opposition has sought to whisper what they fear to
utter in public. Some have had opportunity of addressing the
voters of our group, yet they have never dared to brand Mayor
Nelson a Klansman in public, yet they stoop to the invention of
falsification and are cowardly enough to whisper their misguiding
statement to those who take the supposedly influential man s word
for things they should know themselves. The following is an ex
cerpt from the Washington Day address of Mayor Nelson:
“If a George Washington lived today, he would condemn with
all his might the usurping of government as evidenced a few weeks
ago at Herrin, 111., by a gang which, styling itself American, held
itself superior to the Constitution and to the laws passed by the
majority of the people. And, if Washington lived today, he would
lament the tendency on the part of some associations and individu
als, vaunting their Americanism, to determine guilt and to mete
out punishment without regard to the orderly processes of law.
“Am I not justified in saying that this present tendency by
some organizations and associations to substitute mob rule for law
is the direct fruit of the doctrine of hate so freely broadcast in the
world today?”
Does this sound like the opinion of a Klansman? We should
reach that point when it becomes well known that designing poli
ticians, whose scruples are lax and whose word is not to be taken
at face value, will resort to anything that serves their purpose.
Shall justice, equality and liberty be the dominating forces of
our existence or shall we forsake those whose ability we know for
those who we cannot trust ? Out of the candidates for office, Mayor
Nelson stands head and shoulders above his opponent and has
proven himself to be of such sterling qualities that the possibilities
of his being a Klansman are too remote to be considered.
Let us give our support to a man who has proven himself
worthy; who stands for fairness and whose opponents cannot find
him faulty and are forced to attempt the whispered lie to gain our
favor. We desire the fruits of our efforts to be recognized, so let
each voter give his strength to the best man for Mayor, the
present head of our municipality, Arthur E. Nelson.
Mias Mildred Plummer of Chicago,
111., who has been visiting her moth
er, Mrs. Minnie Plummer, 1000 Igle
hart avenue, returned to that city on
Sunday, greatly benefited by her brief
venation.
Mrs. W. Long, 624 Rondo street,
gave her daughter Thelma a Wlllys
• Knight coach for a graduation pres
i ent. Mias Long graduated from the
f Agricultural School of the University
of Minnesota.

Sayin* that—
The better the day the better the
deed—but why not take her home to
beat her up, you was mighty close
to the jail house door.
A certain owner of a house in
“Deep Rondo” is really out of luck.
Better pay the little lady, ’cause
when she “boilers” she tells it to the
world. How did you explain to your
relatives?
“When I fight I mark you” is a
good proverb, but what are you go
ing to tell the Judge, when they catch
you? Better be careful, it’s house
cleaning time out to the “Works.”
A real nice young man eats at one
hotel and spends all of his time at au
other. See what I mean?
If you go to a lady’s house and
spend all your money, don’t call the
police. Be a sport, but “don’t let the
same bee sting you twice.” Thought
you had quit shooting the captain.
We have a new “baby vamp” in
our town. Met her yet? She never
goes out with anybody—but the home
boys and the strangers.
Now that spring is here, don’t for
get and park your cars along the
highways without the lights burning.
Cost you money if you do. Now won’t
it?
Better see “uncle;” might trade in
that fur-lined overcoat for the spring
suit you left with him last fall. Noth
ing beats a trial but a failure.
Between the St. Paul Daily News
and the Minn. Fiery Cross, a fellow
“Jest can’t git no rest.”
Everybody was there. Where? At
Alexander’s Sunday. Follow the
crowd and you can’t go wrong.
