The Kearney Democrat speaks our
sentiments exactly in the following:
The man who runs for office these
days finds it a great disadvantage to
evade and try to be a "good injun" to
each distinct element in every town or
city. People have become great think
ers, investigators and reasoners about
all such matters. A man can win
more firm friends by standing fairly
and squarely for what he believes to
be the best that is good. There was
a time when evasive tactics would win,
but not now. People as a rule have
become too enlightened and too in
quisitive about the standing of can
didates to pass them by without ques
tion. The man who evades and ex
cuses his position is a loser."
