OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER
Largest Circulation in Red Willow Co
A PERSONAL letter from an oldtiine
McCookite and rock-ribbed Democrat
contains so much pertinent information
that \ve take the liberty of reproducing
a paragraph or two. The writer is ir
the iron industry , and his ' 'zone o :
action" covers pretty much the entire
country ; hence the value of his persona !
"Well , I suppose you do not hear the
hum of the business world in your sec
tion. Never before in the history of this
country has there been such activity ,
especially in the iron and steel lines. It
is not a question of price , but of de
livery. Every hamlet in this state ( Pa. )
is black with the thick , heavy smoke
from the iron mills and the smelters.
Night and day the fires are burning , and
labor is at a premium In the majority
of factories wage1 * have been advanced
without request. The trusts about which
they talk so much , do not seem to effect
labor , neither do they seem to limit or
confine manufacture. Whatever their
future effect may be , the present effect ,
if any , is to make prices of certain lines
uniform and to dispense with costly and
often useless competition. You ought
to cultivate the acquaintance of President
McKinley. His renomiuation and re
election are safely certain. He is un
doubtedly a great man , doubly great ,
because he keeps his face closed , and
does not act the blatherskite at every
"What has become of the party the
'Sage of Arbor Lodge" was about to
start ? Another bottle of pop ; of educat
ed oxvgen ! Strange as it may seem , I
am still a Democrat. "
