The reader has boon freo .to .do his own classifying. Somo have classed me as a Itopuhliran. gome as a Dem eral, some as a Socialist, some as a Bolshevik. Under Iheso circumstances il is only natural that 1 should feel a bit delicate aboul classifying my self. Another circumstance adds considerably to Ihe embarrassment. I attended Iho Democratic County Convention and enme within a half dozen voles of having my name placed upon Ihe Democratic ticket I was mil asked lo renounce any i)f my political ideas as a condition lo my hciug )toiniihlcd. 1 did not hoar Ihat anyone voted against me because ho objected to any of my well advertised political ideas. Hence il seems clear Hint Union County Democrats consider my political doctrines as good Democratic doc trines. Thou came the llepublican County Convention. I was nomin ated as an Iiidepeiulctu and without a dissenting voto my name was placed upon the llepublican ticket. I was not asked to renounce any of my old political doctrinos. Neith or was I asked lo lake on any new political creed. Heneo It would seem that my political doctrines nr not seriously out of harmony with the political doctrines of Union County Itepublicans. Since I havo been called a turn coat, a mugwump and a straddle bug. somo seem lo feel suro that Iho Jokn is on mo Perhaps it is. Anyhow I enjoy thu joke, no matter whom il is on; also think I seo something of a joke on some other people. My political ideas are aboul the samo as they woro beforo the beginning of the lato political campaign, except dial I havo inoroased In wisdom along somo linos. Driving a Sedan Isn't my only newly acquired accomplishment. If I knew nothing and everybody else knew thai I knew nothing I could call myself a Democrat, a lie. publican, n Socialist or an Anar chist and have no difficulty in gel ling by with il. Bui under the pres ent circumstances, when I have some opinions and am known to have somo oplnons, Ihe case is different. This leads mo to say: so far as I know, thorn is no clearly doflned tost for a Democrat or a Repub- lican. I believe tlio Socialists come a Utile nearer having a lest of mem borship. Can you give any sane reason for pulling the same parly label upon Lodge, La Follelle, New berry and Borah? If you are searching for Republicans or Demo crats, don't waste time inquiring about political Ideas, because many people have none The only sure mark of distinction Is the camp. Lei mo venturo a prediction' A now political lineup is duo lo take place in Iho near future. Either a now parly or else Iho progresivo elements in one or both Iho old partió must gum the leadership. Didn't the recent etoclloii reveal a liltlo of the haud-wnliiig on the wull? The present lineup isn't got I i 1 1 lt anywhere. So long as the pres., enl lineup conllmios you may ex peel next to vero so far as construc tive legislation is concerned. There lie ultra conservative standpatters in bolh the llepublican and Dcnio- criitle parties. There are destructive radicals in the Socialist parly. Hut this is the bow of promise- -Hiero aro plonl.v or progiesivo people with constructive ideas in all three of tlio political parlies. When we pel progressive Socialists, progres sive Domorrals and progressive He- publicans lo see llial Ihey have a common ideal and a common sense of justice anil then got lliom togeth we may export some real re.-ulls lusl supposing Ihat w,! farmers who constitute about 10 per cent of tin; voters, should really got to gether and demand some real con slruclivo activity; wouldn't there be a real shaking up in the midst of Iho dry bones?
