We are loath to reply seriously
to a criticism like the above. We
are unacquainted with the editor
of the Swastika but the article
itself gives us the impression
that it was written by some cal-
low youth who has scarce reach-
ed his majority, or perhaps by
his sister, who is temporarily
tiding his space.
Of course it is quite imater-
ial how tie chooses to conduct
his paper or whether tiiere are
some bad, or not very good, men
in any party or whether he ad-
mires tho legislation of demoora
tic states or whether Gbvernor
Haskell has actually defrauded
the United States out of $35 70 or
even if the Democratic editor
has a very "little mind" or is
only ' a political bigot."

know that a recent report* alter

that, at that time, ten tlioj§in<f
