MUST TAKE OUR
Under the above head the Alva
Courier prints the following: * The
constitutional convention will close
its labors. Woods county lias been
divided into three parts. We shall
this coming spring, summer or fall,
have an election. At this election
we are to vote for a sfp.te ticket,^ a
judicial, legislative and c o u n tl,y
ticket. Now comes the question,
j At this election, or rather before
■\ the election, at our conventions or
I primaries, what are we going to do?
S y Will our (wlitical parties nominate
tickets for the county of Woods as
she originally stood, or will our
people divide up into three bodies
and respectively nominate three
county tickets, one set for each
county? Recollect, the HCtion of
the constitutional convention It as
no force or effect unless rati tied by
a majority vole of the people and
is then approved by P r e s i d e n t.
Roosevelt, Therefore, until this
is dune, Woods county is not divi
ded. And until all this is d o n e,
fce are no new counties. N o w,
are you going to elect, candidates
for a county that has no existence,
or will you wait till the county is
created before yon nominate and
elect officers for it? It is time to
think about these things. The
air will be full of injnpcti-.ua, qno
warranto proceedings and writs of
tnandamuB-flfny way- and it is time
now for all to think seriously about
a few of these questions before
these snits are brought.
It’S a pretty fix the democrats
have got ns all into; but, we don t
want to make the matter worse by
getting our coining election “a l 1
Another question: Who is going
to pay the expenses of holding the
election? Who is going to pay
for planting the ballots, and w h o
is going to pay the inspetors, judg-
es and clerks? Not the county or
counties. There is no law author*
mug the commissioners lo incur
o7*pity this expense hdiI they can-
not <h< it. The constitutional con-
version can not appropriate money
for it, neither can it authorize the
counties to pay it. Congress gave
the territories One Hundred Thou-
sand Dollars to cover these expens-
es, hut. that constitutional conven-
tion has already exceeded this lim-
it by its extravagance, und there
isn’t a cent left to pay the inspec-
tors and judges who will have to
hold the next election
The democrats have used the
people of this county pretty rough,
we may as well try to sh i e 1 d
ourselves from further blunders.
We may as well begin to study
the questions before us a n <1 find
out whether we shall, this coining
campaign, Humiliate candidates lor
three counties or for one, or whe-
ther we do either. Alsu where are
are we going te get our election
supplies and inspector and judges
to hold elections without pay
It’s prettv tough on the farmer
to have the county out. into three,
but it will indeed be n bitter day
for him when he Ims to neglect his
farm and sit at the pulling place
all day without pay for mere love
of a county now represented by the
flower of democracy, which -le
lights in broken pledges.’
It really is surprising that the
jaditor of the Courier should use
^'suoh reasoning or rather lack of
reaBOiiiug e« appears in the above
article After asking if we ure go-
ing to ‘-divide up into three bodies A lA/ATCR.
i„ nominate three M
and respectively nominate t li r e e
county tickets” he goes on to say
that until the constitution is rati-
fied and approved by the presi-
dent. “Woods connty ib not divid-
ed,” then asks if we are going to
eleot officers for a county that has
no existence. Let us ask, who pro-
vided for the election of the new
state and county officers at the same
time as the election for ratification
of the constitution? Congress, not
the constitutional convention.
Then in case the constitution is
not ratified, will any of the officers
elected at the coming election be
qualified to hold office? Most as
sureely not. Reject the constitution
and all old offioere will hold over
whether we elect officers for one
connty or three in old Woods since at
the coming election ve eleot state,
not,territory officers. And again,
suppose that we only nominate offi-
cers for one connty, and the curt-
David Van Blarcom, of Rusk,
the “little Irishman” from Garry-
oweu, Iowa, and an old time
friend of the editor, has a scheme
for furnishing water to Fairview
that it might lie well to investigate.
Mr. Van Blarcom came to this
country in the famous “run”- and
filed on a “side-hill” olaim south-
east of Rusk and four miles direct,
ly east of this city. Without
means other than plenty of grit
and a willingness to work, Dave
began the task of building a house
for himself. He succeeded ftr be-
yond his expectations, and- today
has two fine farms, well improved
and is reputed to be worth $10,000.
Several years ago lie discqvsyyd
that his once-despised siiie-hill
claim was underlaid with a strong
sheet-vein of pure sift water. He
whid then1' w e^i'nThe ew conti - once named his place “good- water
ties do? In which case would we
be “ bailed up” the worse?
