Councilman Allen is no*, running this
year on a poetical platform. He is
dealiag with cold stinking facts.
There are several big steals shaping
up which will bankrupt this town next
year if the people don't watch out. A
hint to the wise is sufficient.

We do not wonder at the pops want-
ing to fuse: but why should any sane
democrat who can count from one to
ten, want to. unless he desires to run for
office, is one of the inscrutible mys-
teries which puzzles a finite mind?
About the only use a territory has
for a delegate is to distribute garden
seeds and public documents. As a
pumpkin seed disceminator we fail to
see where Callahan has any edge over
Flynn. We know of scores of demo-
crats in this county who used to get
garden seeds from Flynn by the bushel

The populist party of this territory
seem to have a predilection for preach-
ers. Tbey sandwiched Ralph Beau-
mont with one on each side; then se-
lected another as chairman for the ter-
ritorial central committee The only
thing they now need to be in excellent
trim for proselyting is a mourners"
bench and a short crop.
Cleveland's ex-appointees had all
better emulate Ed -Nix's example and j
go to the led mines of Joplin, or better
still Galbreath's and go to Honolulu,
or Uncle Caleb's and go back to Ala-
bama. instead of offering themselves
for an elective office. They can all save
humiliation at the polls by it.
A little cross-roads' exchange asks,
what is the matter with Jerry O'Rourk,
chairman of the democratic territorial
committee—by accident, for congress?
Can't he draw a big pop vote? Xot
