The Courier is a Rood advertis
ing medium, for merchandise—
or for politics—space in tlie Oour
ier is worth the money—so we
hope our friends, the candidates
will make use of it libernlly ant1
accompany space filling Jirgu
men 18 and news about themselves
with the cash or its equivelent—
The Hon. (Seo. W. Cornell says
all the money in the United
States is based on a gold sfta-ndard
but we are willing to accept sil-
ver, green hacks, hank notes or
bank drafts—Our grocery man
tells us any of these kinds of
money will pass at his store---hut
wt* draw the line on burning mid-
night oil and doing with out
sleep every night or a pail of
the night, to set up, other than
pure news matter about candidates
and polities, for nothing and es-
pecially draw the line on pure
political advertising that candi-
dates try to work on us for news.
This paper is no party organ for
any party -and we expect to print
whatever we please about any
body of any party—-but wo are
