were standing by her father's gate, look

At last she sighed and said, "Sometimes
it seems to me that I am without a
friend and that 110 one cares for me."
"Oh, but you must not think that way,"
said the gallant youth, "for I am sure
there is at least one who cares for yon
very innch." "I can hardly believe
there is," went on the girl, "or I would
not feel so desolate at times. It seems
there is no one who loves me." "But I
am snre there is," said the man, "there
is one who loves yon better than life it
self." And in response to the girl's
coquettish inquiry as to who it was, he
replied, "Jesus loves you."

To tlie Voter* of Butler County.
The Union Fusion party of Pennsyl
vania has been breathed into existence
as a means to an end by which the clean
and honest men of an parties may cast
their ballots on next Tuesday for candi
dates who are not only pledged to re
form. but whose actions while occupy
ing public office give proof of their sin
If any proof or argument is needed to
justify the birth of this party then we
refer you to the reckless expenditures
and corrupt actions of the last Legisla
ture of Pennsylvania. which was aided
and backed and defended by the state
administration, the chief of whom, was
the minority Governor of the state.
The voters on last November. 1900,
chose a majority of legislators pledged
against the return of M. S. Quay to the
U. S. Senate, but the horde of lobby
bribers. under division chiefs, arrived
in Harrisburg with the openiug of the
session, and the wishes ot the mijarity
of the voters of the state, as it had been
expressed as the polls were thwarted,
and after the first round of the carnival
of bribery, ended, Quay got a certificate
to again sit in the l\ S. Senate and thu<
a new premium was put on bribery and !
crooked methods.
Notwithstanding their bigh-pricv 1
success in their first round the Organiz
ed Bosses and political crooks proceeded
to tackle every Clergyman and layman
during the session th it did not travel
with them, and the pen of a McCanley
or the voice of a Demosthenes would
fail if charged with a discription of
their acts, committed under color of
law and tlieir solemn oaths.
This Legislature was so indefensibly
corrupt that mention of some names
nakes those of Tweed and Bardslay
sound sainted and sanctified. Let the
fame of Lincoln, Grant, Garfield. Ar
thur, Hays, Harrison and McKinley
sliine on this so called Republican Leg
islature and they would vanish and flee
from its blackness like wills-o-the-wisp
Yet the recent State Convention, owned
and directed by Quay and his Bosses,
who had stifled ballot reform, which
they pledged the people on the stumi
prior to election, endorsed the actions of
this Legislature and proceeded to nomi
nate Mr. Telephone Potter for Supreme
Judge and Mr. Quay Stone Ripper Har
ris for State Treasurer, and pledged
them when they accepted nomination
upon said platform to endorse what Re
publicans like Postmaster General
Smith, ex-Postmaster General John
Wanamaker, Samuel M. Clemment,
District Attorney Rot.hermal, Senator
David Martin and U. S Revenue Collec
tor McClain, all of Philadelphia, e.v
Gov. Hastings, ex Att'y Gen. McCor
mick, ex-Congressman Chas. W. Stone.
Hon John Dalzell, George W. Merrick,
ex-Lieut. Gov. Watres and the preseut
Lieut. Gov. Gobin (who until recently
trained with the Quay-Stone ore&niza
tion.but who now denounces their reck
less corruption and utter disregaid of
the interests of the people), denounce.as
do all the public men that have been
Moreover ministers of the Gospel all
over the state, who are not politicians
or office seekers, stveral hundred of
them in the city of Pniladelpbia have
recently held public meeting to discuss
the peoples' cause and they have de
nounced the reckless and corrupt city
government of Philadelphia, as well as
that of the entire state.
This mention of the names of distin
guished citizens of Pennsylvania, who
either now, or in the recent past, have
been office holders, is here made because
they have in their public duties been
brought In personal contact with the
reckless and corrupt action of the state
machine, that seeks to muzzle and sup
press self-respecting freemen. Added
to these there are many thousand hon
est voters in the state, laymen, business,
nlid professional, who know the truth of
these statements. These facts, as to
our state affairs and the methods used,
are to a large degree applicable to con
ditions in Butler C'onnty at the present
time, which plainly became manifest in
the Republican primaries of 1900 and
1901, when factional machine tickets
were printed and distributed, coutain
ing only the names of certain candidates
selected by a political clique, who thus
assumed by their dark-lantern methods
to deceive, mislead, and GULL the fair
minded, but unsuspecting voter, into
casting a vote for their candidates.
The employment of these methods in
the 1900 primary campaign by the ring
binchtneu only succeeded by less than
1(H) votes in the County, and this is proof
on its face, if the vote at that primary
hid been uninfluenced by the printed
tickets and rosy promises of the gang,
we would have had members at Harm
burg who would not have supjiorted and
voted for Ripper Bills, needlees new
offices, outrageous Traction and Rail
road Steals, four million dollars of the
tax-payers' money to expend on the
Capitol Building, and tolerated falsified
Journals and padded Pay Rolls, and
numerous other doings and votes, not in
the interest of the people, of which
space here forbids our mention.
The Republican primary was held, the
present year, the first day of last June,
and all candidates for office at that time
announced their names in the columns
of the Party Newspapers of the county
and started in to make their personal
canvass on their merits before the
people; and if the canvass had been al-j
lowed to proceed to nomination day on
this line, doubtless, the ticket would
have been differently constituted. But
sometime prior to nomination day it be
came apparent that a clique of persons,
known as the new county Bosses,
by a common purpose and agreement,
entered into a canvass and used the Re
publican organization solely in the in
terest of candidates of their own selec
tion. In pursuance of this purpose they
made a canvass of the County, mostly
by twos, in good carriages and took
with them a good supply of the printed
factional tickets, that have been men
tioned, and which they distributed to
certain of their borough aud township
heelers. It may be said that many of
these claquers were BUSINESS MKN and
many of them were like the Indian,
they leved "to BAKTER and TRADE a
bit," with a well-dressed dude acting as
PAYMASTER and accompanied by mem
bers of the legislature who showed their
interest in the scheme by leaving their
JOBS at Harrisburg to visit voters at
their rural homes Ifthoy did not see
the persons wanted in that way, word
was sent by some conrier to them to
visit Butler; when they arrived here
their hands were eagerly grasped by
usually indifferent aristocrats, either on
the streets or in the office, and future
political plans unfolded, (which perhaps
embraced them,) and they naturally
saw only the mighty ropes and pulleys
of the organization machine which was
well bushed and boxed with GOLD to
prevent any friction, and so the ma
chine ran at high pressure until the
polls closed, the eve of June first, when
it stopped for want of power anil st-wjd
still until the UNION PARTY ticket
caused it to fall out of balance, and
notning but new bushing and high-pres
sure running will stand any chance of
beating the time of the UNION PARTY
But the mendacious commercial em
ployes of the state machine here have
got sealed orders to raise their cry of
REGULARITY, as they did last year.
Notwithstanding that after they were
squarely defeated last November ill the
state, they fused with recreant Demo
crats and some Judases, elected to the
legislature as Anti-Quay Republicans,
and thus purchased their high-priced
Now let the fair minded voter juk
himself why this selfish and corrupt
Kang should have a trade-mark patent
on their BRAND of fusion to defeat the
WILL of the people expressed at the
polls by their Ripper-Methods; yet the
moment the honest voter assays to cast
his ballot for clean candidates, who
know no masters save the people, they
howl their deatlx-bed son# of "KEOU
LARTY". This reminds us that "when
Satan was sick a Saint he would be, but
when he got well no Saint was he."
Their insincere and paid hirelings are
now abroad throwing sand in the eyes
of voters for their own selfish purposes.
Why are these LABOKKKS SO much
concerned about the peoples candidates?
Are their jobs jeopardized by thesliadow
of the success of the Union ticket?
Let every voter think before he is con
vinced by the taugled fallacies of the
BlNti, woven for their own covering,
that they may continue in posesslon of
the public offices Remember you vote
a secret ballot without any hired to.il
to molest you and no living person will
know how yon voted if you do no? vmr
self proclaim it, but your ballot will be
i counted as marked.
Be sure to obtain and examine n
sample ballot so that you may vote in
telligently, not only for the UNION
PARTY candidates but also for both ol
