PAPER IS EXCITED
Truth About Late Republican
Convention Works Union Into
SPEAKING FOE THE COMBINE
Vain Attempt to Salve the Wounds
Inflicted on Rank and File
of Party in Country.
The Union, in its excitement this
morning over the revelation of the
actual state of affairs in the late re
publican county convention, attrib
utes to Sheriff Y. G. Heider an expres
sion relative to The Argus that this
paper does not believe him guilty of.
Mr. Heider is in Chicago today, and
therefore could not be seen, but the
tactics and talk of a hoodlum have
been so far from his nature, as far as
The Argus has been able to know him.
that it prefers meanwhile to rest its
judgment on what it has seen of him
rather than take the Union's word for
what he is alleged to have said. There
was nothing that can be construed in
what The Argus said of the proceeding'-
justifying an outbreak on Mr.
Heider's part and no attack was made
mi hint whatever. The statement ap
pearing in The Argus, and which out
side papers have also made, w: s thai
the presence of the sheriff in the con
vention alone prevtnted a riot. This
assertion, which is complimentary to
the sheriff rather than otherwise, has
not and cantu t be successfully con
tradicted. YVhilc some of the delegates
left in disgust, there were plenty of
the delegates, at whom the outrage of
the entire proceeding was aimed, who
remained to the last, ami if the threats
that had been made to remove C. J.
Searle from the house because he was
merely standing on his parliamentary
rights, had not been piieted before
any attempt was made to execute
them, there would have been a serious
conflict. It was the sheriff solely who
prevented serious trouble.
I0ipsiir Hurt (Inllty.
There is nothing that so disturbs
the guilty as exposure of its guilty
deeds. The outrage committed on
decent republicans from the beginning
to the end oi the county convention
cannot be undone bv denia
the Union has of
late resorted to in discussing such af
fairs does not in any way strengthen
Ihe defense it is attempting to make.
It is easy recklessly to employ the
word "liar" as applied to anyone that
may take exception to certain ways of
doing, and the freipienov with which
the morning paper has used this epi
thet recently is pretty direct evidence,
if such were wanting, of the source of
ils editorial an ! political inspiration.
Anent the county convention, the tac
tics of the combine were to browbeat
from the opening the proceedings.
The forcing of Kennedy as chairman
j was a defiance. The thr It ling of till
motions in the interc.-t of iti.it and
parliamentary practice was in strict
adherence to the program to rule the
situation whether right or wrong. As
the whole convention proceeding was
high handed the result cannot fail to
prove otherwise than weak. There
werc three things the combine set out
to accomplish -control the conven
tion, the stale's attorney and the
county committee. It did all three.
The combine will again find itself face
to face with the people, who are not
to be intimidated or bulldoed.
