Bro. Sherman hastens to get into the
soup by fiercely attacking Mr. Thomas
the republican nominee for the state sen
ate. He brazenly charges that Mr.
Thomas is dishonest and rides on a rail
road pass. The charge is a lie to start
with and the liar who utters it is fully as
soft as he is dishonest. He is urging
Hon. F. E. White, a pronounced 1$. & M
man who always rides on a pass, for the
same legislature that he denounces Mr
Thomas unfit for, when he knows White
is a thorough railroad man. This demo
cratic advocate will have to support
either F. E. White or Billy Neville before
this campaign is over for the legislature,
both of whom are pronounced railroad
men and he will be asking the alliance to
support them. He has always howled
for C. II. VanWyck for public office
knowing t,he old general "was yaporing
around our county fairs denouncing rail
roads, with his pockets stuffed full of
railroad transportation and bragging
that it was honorable to "forge off of
the enemy.'? Mr. Thomas is not a rail
road man, does not ride on a railroad
pass and is a farmer and an honest man,
and the flatulent editor of the Journal
will oppose him and support a strait out
railroader during this campaign. Al
liance men mark th's prediction.
To hear the average democrat howl
about the Lodge Election Bill puts one
in mini of the ravings of democratic
statesmen over the Reconstruction Meas
ures as they came up when adopted and
acquiesced by the American people as
wise and just laws. Any measure that
will prevent fraud and violence at the
polls in the south will be denounced as
unconstitutional by every dough-face in
the democratic camp. It is the old copper-head
If the democratic party of the south
don't want a Federal Election Measure
enacted let that party stop its election
frauds. The law applies north as well as
south. Who is afraid of such a measure
encroaching upon any ones rights in the
free north? It is the ballot box stuff ers
of the south and the dough-faces of the
north who are afraid of this measure
A FARMER TESTIFIES.
The New York World is acquiring the
merit of candor, free trade organ though
it be. It has permitted a fellow named
"Willson, with two l's, to write column
after column of falsehood.as to the prices
of American-made farm implements at
home and abroad, in which the American
farmer ia assured that he pays mere for
his implements than is charged by the
same makers for tbe same articles when
shipped to foreign countries, pretended
home and foreign rates being quoted.
The Inter Ocean long exposed the falsity
of the figures, but the World kept on
printing Mr. Willson's stuff.
The farmers, however, are begining to
write to the World, one of tnem in words
and figures as follows, to-wit:
68 Bridge Street, Amsterdam. War on
the farmer. Ju3t bought a hay tedder
the past week for $25 which you repre
sent as selling to farmers at $45, while
the foreigner could buy it for $30.
Now, if all the reading matter in the
World is aa correct as about the hay ted
der, the less we farmers have to do with
your paper the better it will be for us.
We just reprint the letter in full assur
ance that no western democratic paper
which has been copying Mr. Willson's
falsehoods from the World will copy this
correction which the World itself i3 forced
