Carbon's Board has permitted the

To tb,f Democracy of our thriving
town. If you were not on the winning
side In the reoent delegate c lections,
don't "sulk In your tent," but show you
are true Democrats, by helping along
the nominees as If they had been your
choice. It Is Important, o( course, to
have efficient officers to rule our county
government, and It is right to take a
strong interest In the elections, but
when the votes are cast and counted,
and the winners declared, opposition
should oease at onoe. Tbe principles
of our great parly should be paramount
to our personal friendships and de
sires. If we wish to advance these
principles there must be harmony in
the ranks. Your w.unds will soon
heal up i you quit thinking about
them and when with your assistance
the party moves proudly onward, as it
has in the past, It will be a source of
gratification to you aud will win tbe
respeot of those who were your oppon
ents. Let us all put our shoulders to
the wheel and Democratic success will
crown our effort net November.

an experience with the conferree

der such a method, to get into trouble.
Says the Phlla. Press. Judge Storm, of
Monroe, and ex-Seaator Craig, of Car
bon, are candidates for the judiciary
nomination, and each has an equal
number of cunf errees, regardless ot the
fact that Carbon has a population more
than half as large again as Monro and
casts n lamer Democratio vote. It Is
not expected that either county will
yield to the other, and tbe result will
probably be that both candidates will
remain in the Hold. Th claims of Car-1
