(or Mr K"" (or county attorney
Elrst. Mr. Uo>. Is not an attorney for any
corporation In thla lerrltory and Is the
chosen candidate of the farmer, and tax-
payer. of L-cn.
And now a (ew reaxona why the voters
should not vote f**r Mr Asher:
Elrst. Mr. Asher la the attorney of one of
the iniMt soulless corporation* In th* I nlted
Slabs namely; (he hln*d attorney of the
ilocU Island Railroad company We under
.land that In certain localities that Mr
Asher has denied that lie Is the n*gularly
employed atlnrney of the railroad In L-cn.,
avoiding this charge against him hy suiting
thill he had a case or two against the peop1"
„( Hound Pond f ir I he Unck Island Railroad
company hut that lie was lio more the at-
torney for Hits corporation than he was for
any other person. There are numbers of
honorable men In the republican parly who
know the farts before whom he would not
dare make this at moment. * Mr. Asher has
Ida office In the Kook Island railroad depot
at N’orl h Pond I'nek w here lie I. In constant
communication with the railroad officials
and constant ass.s'latioi) with Mr. King, th*
depot agent al North Pond ( n ek w ho I* u .
his desk and goes Into the country making
the moat earnest appeals to the farmers t*
vote for Mr. Asher. Harry Thompson
another agent of tt»l« great corporation, with
maddened fright, rushes up and down tin
railroad In I.-co. urging the good people
vote for Mr. Asher. The agents all ovei
L-eo.offering free transportation to volers
who ronleniplale going up to Kansas to be
gone during tin* election: free transporta-
tion going and coming If they will
hack and vote for Mr. Asher.
Now Mr. Editor, the question propounds
Itself to US. What Interest has the Bock
Island Railroad company In Mr. Asher mor*
than any other candidal* ? Let u* see aliki
further First, It I. a notorious fact that
this railroad company will contest th*
lax levy and endeavor to swindle us out of
upwards of fs.OO) taxi's which are justly du«
10 L-eo., for at the time the tax levy should
have been made as required by law. (he Ris-k
Island Railroad company had actually
bribed two of the commissioners of this
county, vlx: Reed and White and had then.
In tiedr employ as detective, working up
eases against tlie Round Pond mol), so that
after tlielr removal when the new commis-
sioners made the levy the time had expired
In which the levy could have been made
under I lie Oklahoma statute, so that it lr
nowa question whether or not the court*
will sustain the action of the commissioner-
In making the levy. Ills also a fact uni-
versally conceded, that the Ris'k Island
Railroad company will sue this county for
damages done to thetr properly by lie* mob
a I Round Pond for n sum of not less than
11110.000, and Mr. Asher, bear lu mind. Is tin
only attorney In 'bis territory who holil-
that such an action can be maintained
against the comity. With these alarming
(nets staring us In the face, who can help
tiuUc-vlug that the connection between Mr
Asher and the railroad company that If Mr
Asher is elected that tho railroad company
will hold him undor obligations to It and ex
erclse a complete Inllucucc over him in tin
management of our county affairs. Tt do*
seem to us that If Mr. Asher Is the fair-
minded and consclouclous man that he rep-
resents himself to be, that when ho receive*,
his nominal Ion for county attorney he would
have resigned Ills position with tin* railroad
company. Rut In* tells tho people that In* is
gning to resign If elected. Hut even If In
does this w*eare very anxious to know wh>
