TOOK DOWN THE BANNER.
It, Is the tlrst titue in the history of
our lives we have ever seen the Dem-
ocratic banner taken down and re-
placed by a mongrel emblem, having
no history as a parly and no declara-
tion of principle on which to stand.
Hut such has been done In Perry.
The Democratic party, under a thor-
ough organization, had held its con-
ventions—both county and legisla-
tive; had organized Its committees
and established lieadquartes; had
raised its banner, "Democratic Head-
quarters," to float to the breeze, and
made all preparations for an active
and aggressive campaign. After all
this tad been done along came a few
otlicecrat Pops and proposed to a few
Popocratic Democrats that if the
Popocratic Democrats would give to
the offlcecrat Pops the control of the
county affairs, they, the otlicecrat
Pops, would join them, the Popo-
cratic Democrats, and takedown the
Hag of Democracy, fold and lay it
silently away In the back room where
the moths and mice could use it as
their winter quarters This proposl
lion of the offlcecrat Pops was agreed
to by ti few (not to exceed Ave per-
sons) Popocratic Democrats, and
straightway the flag of Democracy
was dethroned anil disowned, and the
rights of Democrats from casting
their vote for Democrats has been
trampled in the dust and spat upon
This is the flrst time in our lives
that we have seen men, who claim ti
be Democrats, use such brazen af-
frotttery by discarding the title of
Democracy and placing in its stead
bastard title 'Tis the tlrst time, we
say, and we blush with shame
know that it has been done, not, per
haps, that they love the title of Dc
mocracy less, but. that they love the
environment, of offlce more. There is
not. a true Democrat in Noble county
but who should feel that he had been
insulted, and that which he he had
stood by for the last twenty years
and more. Is now trying to be inbred
into a mixture of quadroons autl half-
breeds Tor t he sake of a few men to
get offlce. It is as impossible tor men
to gel to Heaven who deny their
Christ as it Is for Democrats to get
Intonfflco by denying their Democ-
racy.' Ibis is tlte condition of the
mongrel ticket; sailing under the mis-
nomer of Free Silver ticket, pinned
in ihe placed of Democracy, underdls-
of these poslDllitlef

OUB TICK 1ST.
The Democratric ticket to be seen
In the Skntjnri. Is composed of men
selected by the regular Democratic
convention. They were chosen by
representative Democrats from all
ver the county. Any oilier ticket is
purious <it d not akin to the regular
Democratic ticket. It is reported
bat a mongrel ticket has been agreed
upon by a few Pops and Democrats,
but that the people of t he county had
hand in mixing the. ingredients.
It is also said that by the election of
this mongrel ticket the Pops will
have control of the affairs of the
county. For this reason the Senti-
nkl, as a Democratic newspaper, re-
fuses to he absorbed by Populism, the
vote of which In the county is over
one-third less than the Democrats.
Then another reason that makes a
Democrat look with suspicion upon
this self-constituted mongrel ticket is
that it was manufactured by a hand-
ful of men and not by the people.
The Sentinel will support the regu-
lar Democratic ticket as lo.ig as there
Is a single candidate left standing
thereon, and believe there is not a
true Democrat In the county but
what will do the same, If he cares
anything about maintaining the prin-
ciple of Democracy in tlte future.
If Aiken is elected sherilT and
Dick Plunkett is bis deputy, the Sen-
tinel wiii be all right, for Dick is Its
friend, .lint, hold on, what, will be-
come of the hybrid sheets? They,
too, are claiming Dick as Ihcir friend.
AN OBJECT LESSON.
The gold standard press is striv-
ing hard by precious argument to
convince the wage worker that he
cannot afford to advocatefree coin-
age of silver, as the success of the
free coinage idea means increased
prices for what he has to buy. As!
usual, this argument is not carried
to its legitimate conclusion by the
gold standard press. It does not
tell the fact that the prosperity of
the worker in the factory depends
upon the ability of the people at
large to purchase the fruits of his
skill and industry. That is a
proposition that docs not need ex-
plaining. Any mechanic can see
it. Now, has the depression in
prices of products of the soil af-
fected the man who works in the
mill or upon the railroad; Here
are a few tigurcs that will explain
a few things that the gold stand-
ard press seeks to conceal:
On September 19, 1872, wheat
was quoted on the Chicago market
at ftl.lt> per bushel. On that day
flour was quoted on the same mar- j
ket at fti.25 per barrel. On Sep-
tember IS), 18'JG, wheat was quoted
on tlie Chicago market at til cents,
while flour was quoted on the Chi-
cago market at $5.25 per barrel.

The regular Democratic joint con-
vention of Noble and Pawnee coun-
ties for the purpose of nominating a
candidate for the council was held at
Perry on Sept. 5, nominated Henry S.
Johnston as the regular Democratic
candidate. At a joint convention of
Pops held at Lela the Pops endorsed
the Democratic nominee for council.
The same conditions exist as to the
candidate for representative of the
Third district with the exception
that Pawnee county and North White
rock, North Red Ruck and Autry
township had no vote. These men
are the regjlar Democratic nominees
yet a handful of dictators presume to
draw them down as the nominees of
the regular conventions and place

What does this show j While the
flour that I ho wage worker has to
buy had decreased in price Hi per
cent., the ability of the. farmer to
buy the results of the wage
worker's toil w ith the wheat from
the farm had decreased 47 per
cent. Thus it w ill be seen that as
the ability of the farmer to buy
was decreased the demand for the
articles made by the wage worker
was decreased, hence idle mills and
factories, and idle railroad men
patiently waiting for farm pro-
ducts to move and give them em-
But wheat is not the only article
that may be used to illustrate this
point, though it is the main article,
because wheat and flour are tlie
chief necessaries of the people.
Let us take the items of hogs and
bacon, as hogs are an important
item on the farm, and bacon is an
important item in the wage
worker's bill of expense of living.
On September lfl, 1872, hogs were
quoted on the Chicago market at
$5.10 per hundred. On the same
I day bacon was quoted at 8 cents,

Where will the Democratic party or
Noble county be the next election If
the offlcecrat Pops should gain this
election? That's the question.

people will insist on trying to talk
politics who can't hardly talk United

The phonograph has been a source
of pleasure to many, but like many
other good things il is to be debased
by abuse. It has been seized upon as
a campaign Instrument by Marcus
Aurclius Hanna and Is to be set l<
work grinding out Republican gold
standard speeches. This Is too much
and the only chance for relief is that
the machine will get mixed up after
they are started to running. Sup-
pose, for instance, that while a pho-
nograph is grinding out in a monoto-
nous tone one of Mr. McKlnley's re-
cent utterances in favor of tne gold
standard, it should suddenly swiicli

Mr. Mckinley made denouncing Gro-
ver Cleveland for dishonoring one of
our money metals.
Would it not lie painful to have one
of the machines suppenly break oil in
one of Senator Allison's present cam-
paign speeches to quote what he said
about silver being demonutized by a
trick? The very thought Is enough to
make Mark's knees rattle like the cas-
tanets used by the end man In a mln

awful thing it would be If the ma-

a screen to deceive the people? If
the Pop Ideas are right why not as

them control and blame the Demo-
crats for a part of their misdeeds.
