GARDNER OUT OF THE RUNNING The Square Dealers Outsquaredeal Themselves In a Per fectly Lovely Square Deal Transaction From Wednesday afternoon last, on to tlio day ot the final crack of doom, liny St. Joseph Republican who adver tises himself or woman either for that matter as a Square Dealer will meet the frozen and pitiless eye, for the design uion Is now, a misnomer and Instead of expressing confidence in one. It will suggest the Very oppo site for the Square Deal will now be taken n the symbol of crooked ness of t!sc .hopp.-yiake brand. Never in the history of St. Joseph has there such a primary been held as was that of the gop hosts Wednes day afternoon, and possibly never again will tho world nt large be per mitted to view such n ludicrous and twisted a spectacle. The old story of crookedness such as a round house apartment being necessary,' is tame, compared with some of the contor tions; practiced cm that police station lot. Herod was out-Herodlted Mun chausen was outfnblcd, and Tom Hoy outclassed and all over a little politi cal plum or two "which half of the gop party In this' pity and Buchanan county wanted and but few got and what Is more to the point In is sue nwno of the Square Dealers so styled who are today worse off than when they started in bearing proudly aloft a. perfect square and ending up with it twisted into a dilapidated corkscrew. Til Ik About JU'iientliis! When tho "John Albus boys" ap peared at the polling place at 4 p. m. with the ballot boxes, the other fel lows, the "Square Dealers" as they up to that time styled themselves, wero there in force. They had all of the brick plies In the neighborhood deco rated with appropriate signs, and ap peared to be expecting something. When the fateful hour struck Chief Moore, who had a plentiful supply of his minions on hand, gave the last word of caution and they the Square Dealers were off. They swarmed Into the booth and nought to take forcible possession of the ballot boxes, but John and his boys for a time prevented that, and after a lengthy squabble as to wheth er the boxes were already loaded or not, a couple of other ballot boxes brought down by a Square Dealer Were brought Into play and the Square Dealers started Into stuffing them, but a cautionary word from one of tho cool headed ones of that whig Mopped that, as these ballots would never have been even approaching legality, and then the other boxes were seized and their stuffing process begun by tie Square Dealers. A I'crfces. Wcfcsllll And such a carousal and wassail! Nothing like It even lrt the palmy days of Mark Hanna and the far famed Credit Mobller flare, ever came within speaking dUtanre of It. The Square Dealers flushed with what they considered success. Just filled thoso boxes so full that they would not hold another toothpick. They sent blocks of ballots to the outside where a force of Square Deal pencil artists put the "fixln's" on the Albus boys aggregation, and sent them back into the booth by any one who would take them where they were stuffed into the ballot boxes. Did anyone challenge? not that any one could hear for tho Square Dealers now seemed to have It all their own way and "that way" was to fill the ballot boseswlth Square Deal i- ballots and they sure did. The women Square Dealers seonied to take to ballot box stuffing as readily as a duck takes to water, one of them the wife of one of the greatest objectors to the "Albus-Boj'tr methods" stand ing In the door of the booth and call ing to the crowd Hiat she "had al ready voted twice' and am going to vote again," and then disappearing Inside tho booth with another ticket in her hand that some Square Dealer handed to her. A prominent Square Dealer who Is connected with amuse ment features of the city Is credited with the statement that "I voted at least fifteen times," and numbers of Square Dealers stood outside after the polls closed and unblushingly pro claimed that they had repeated, many of them several times. Oh! It was a . comflture. glorious time a day of educational politics Square Dealing! Then tin- llold-1'p And then came the grand finale the closing symphony probably the dead march for the supposed van quished. When the stuffing process was con cluded, tho regular Judges and clerks who had been allowed to remain, but not to take a part were ordered to, but refused to go ahead and count the ballots until tho booth was cle.ired. i Then the Squaro Dealers in superior force nml by a display of physical i power continued in charge of the ballot boxes depriving the rightful Judges and clerks of their office and in a Square Deal way counted the ballots declared that thirty-one Square , Dealers were Square Dcalcdly elected sealed up the boxes square deal edly certified that the tally sheets showed that the Square Deal ticket had been elected and that thirty-one tried and true Squaro Dealers were entitled to sit In the coveted conven tion, und turned the stuff over to Chief Moore who locked it up In the vault nt the Central pojiec station which no doubt Is about as fitting a place as such a crime stained object .should be placed within. Hut the Square Dealers have n big green fly In their ointment and th "Albus boys" art Just as happy as ever. The Square Dealers KNQW that Albus is national committeeman they KNOW that the certificates must be lfsucd ! Chairman Harnett and Secretary Anderson they KNOW that "Albus and his boys" arc daring and itsourceful fighters and they KNOW tliat the latter Mill hold the whip hand and will now USK IT MKItCI-I.KSSLY. There Is much good sense and at least ono bit of epigrammatic expres sion In Representative Champ Clark's refusal to run for the Senate and his determination to stick to the House. He points out a feature of Washing ton life that has not rccel-.d enough attention when he says. "There Is a House habit with which I am thor oughly acquainted and a Senate hnblt with which 1 am not familiar." The sentence Is as good In Its phrasing as It Is In Its self-knowledge nnd knowl edge o( Washington life: most people would have written "atmosphere" in stead of "habit," but Mr. Clark selecta the better word. Almost as good In Itn keenness of nnalysls Is his declaration that no nir.n has a right to run for n great office "Involving himself nnd hi) friends In SECY. TO MAYOR.ELECT IfiTbcrt A.
