LAPORTE, PENNA., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1898.
Zig-Zags in Politics
President Hoyt of the Cnioii Tan
nrng Compnny made it his business
to visit Laporte on Friday, and was
observed in earnest consultation
with the tannery officials, but the
subject under discussion was said to
be one not relating to politics.
Vote for .J. L. Christian, be is an
honest man far beyond reproach and
will be the first to aid "honest gov
It is not a party battle,but a natfon
jin peril. MeKinley must have a full
j house of Representatives and Sena
It is neither pelf nor place that we
j crave. We must aid the President
|in defending our national honor.
Whore the American tlag has been
raised it must there remain. Vote
1 for Wood in.
I Always beware of those who run
J and yell "thief,'when there are no
i thieves." This fact has been proven.
From this day until the polls close
<on the first Tuesday in November
every patriot without regard to party
i who would safeguard the coinnion
! wealth should aid in forming a com
mittee of safety and vote for l>r. .1.1..
J.L. Christian i- a man of tirinncss
and character. He is practical, pro
; gressive and sensible. He has a good
name to maintain, and sufficient
courage to grapple with wrong even
when it is intrenched within his own
< political household should such oc
cur. Vote for him.
Mullen and Gallagher's thrilling
production of campaigning litis been
on the stage just long enough to in
sure it a fair trial, it has made a de
cided hit in provoking little or no
; enthusiasm, and the popular response
is disappointing. It was their in
tention to mislead the people and
make the campaign go with a rush.
Voters were to have plenty of time
for free excursions, excitement and
' applause, but no time for bought.
Some of the more sanguine leaders
are beginning to suspect that it will
not work, that there is something
; wrong with the whole outfit and
i that a profitable diverson can only
he reached by nothing less than a
change. There is not much discount
on the statement that the rule of
common sense applies in politics a>
in every thing else. On one -id«* it
is hurrah and on the other sj<|e
dignity, honesty and proper conser
vatism. There is danger in a change
lof base before the war clouds have
' cleared away. Our accounts with
| Spain are in a state of unsatisfactory
or substantial settlement. It means
peril if this Statedoes not do it- duty.
It can be daughter in the National
house while it is mistress in its own.
A rebuke to Wood in and Christian
here is a reflection upon the sublime
administration of MeKinley in his
war and financial problems he is so
successfully working out. To rebuke
these worthy candidates indicates :t
want of confidence iu MeKinley and
his advisors. This Democratic howl
about "Quayism" i- a contention
i calculated to have weight only in
i disordered minds. Wood in and
'christian are the people's candidates
and they are pledged to support the
wishes of their constitutents mid to
stand shoulder to shoulder iu the
support of MeKinley.
Our voters are called upon this
i year to decide questions upon which
j depends the honor of the Nation for
jail time and the prosperity of the
country for many years while de
veloping its new possessions. No
, body is better equipped than he
should be to decide this question,and
yet some are painfully deficient in
the knowledge requisite to an in
telligent decision. Many good
honest men are suffering themselves
to be misled by political healers cry
ing "better government" and niitk
! ing allegations which they are un
able to prove. Hence it should be
the desire of every citizen to learn
all he can bearing upon the real issues
of the hour. He should have a mind
hospitable to truth, and not assume
that he knows all about the subject
; by hearing hot speeches and handling
i Wanamaker and Swallow mud cakes.
Campaign Stars That Illuminate.
For Sheriff the Republicans have
j a candidate in 11. \V. Osier who is
going to win, and a better man never
aspired to that responsible office.
Mr. Osier is well known to the peo
ple of the county. lie i> ;i gentle
man of unimpeachable integrity and
| sobriety, well versed in business
I affairs, and one who could be depen
ded onto administer the duties of
High Sheriff with the strictest fidel
ity, honor and sobriety. Air. < )sler
is going to receive a handsome vote
from his many friends on the other
side and if every man on his side
does his duty which he surely will,
there will !><■ no mistaking the re
Win. J. Lawrence will succeed
himself to the office of Prothonotarv.
That i> what his supporters are say
ing and most Democrats profess to
believe the same thing. A man of
tine character, a business man of the
first ability,and the people w ill see
to it that he is honored to the office
which seeks his perfect and syste
matic supervision. The people owe
him gratitude for the able services
rendered them by him while serv
ing his first term, and they will re
ward these services 011 Tuesday, No
vember*. 11 is party w ill be agist
ed by a large number of Democrats
and good ones too. Vole for him.

Dr. .1. L. Christian, for whom his
friends are making a phenominal
old-fashioned campaign, and who i
makinga vigorous and able contest,
wa> born in Columbia county in
1860, studied medicine and graduat
ed from the Raltimorc College of
Physicians and Surgeons, and the
Modicn-Chirurgieal College in Phil
adelphia. The Doctor is a hustler
and has been an untiring worker in
his profession from the time lie locat
ed in 1 lillsgrove in isi»u, and shows
the same amount of vim since em
barking in the field of politics. Of
comfortable mean- lie talv- an in
terest in political matters as a citi
zen's duty, and is highly competent
to properly represent the people of
this county effectively in the legis
lature. lie is well informed, en
ergetic. progressive and full of en
terprise. lie is broad minded, kind
and charitable, and one of the truest
friends and most loyal men a voter
ever had a privilege to cast a ballot
for. Heingwcll acquainted with all
side> of hi- character, we frankly say
that he completely deserves the suc
cess in life with which he lias been
blessed, and which has come to him
on account of lii> manly qualities.
This accounts for his great popularity
with all who know him. Dr. Cliris
tian deserves to succeed in this cam
paign for Representative, and will
poll the large.-t vote ever polled
under like conditions. Standing
he does, for the interest and wishes
of his constitutents he i- the popular
candidate of the whole people, im

11. \V. Osier is the sort of man the
people want in the Sheriff's office if
they desire that it he conducted on
strict business principles. Taking
all features into consideration it is
evident that the best thing for the
voters of Sullivan county to do is to
give him a Mattering majority and
insure his induction into the office of

\V. 11. Wood in is a man who has
all the vigor of youth; he is experi
enced in public affair-; he has care
fully studied all the financial inter
ests of the nation; he posses»e> the
pride of character that nlust make
liini appreciate the responsible duties
of public office. Although he conies
from a well known family of high
rank there is nothing dudish or aris
tocratic in his makeup. lie is a
party man, with no finical nonsence
in his notions of politics, I »ut he i~
the kind who can think for them
selves. He is a man who will stand
by MeKinley. This he will do man
fully and that above all is what the
people want at this crisis. That i»
the kind of a man intelligent voters
want, and that is the kind they will
jet with Woodin. Mr. Woodin w ill
not only mean well, but this mean
ing will be emphasized by action,
prompt and needful.
