EXPLANATION- Uepublican. F for Fusion
GOOD , Editor and Publisher
HOW IT HAPPENED ,
( CONTINUED FROM IST PAGE. )
Pete for clerk' , but the worst part of the
whole thing is that many fusionisls
believed the stones told , although we
had frequently warned thtin of what' '
they might expect , just before election. !
In Valentine alone Pete lost 22 populist ,
votes ; this we say upon the statement ,
of A. M. jMorrissey , who kept track of ; :
the ballots as they were counted. Two |
c-auses then were responsible for Dono- '
tier's defeat : The campaign roorback ]
and the defection of the pops.
Mrs. Crawford was deafeated , also ,
and for that the county should hide in
shame. Her successful opponent is a
woman , therefore we will not enter in
to details , except to call the attention
of voters to the vote in Valentine pre
cinct , where each woman was known.
Here Mrs. Crawford received a majority
of 25 , running 30 ahead of her ticket
in the precinct , while she wns defeated
by 47 votes in the county. Shame up
on fusion voters !
Kiukaid received his majority in this
county because the republicans aroused
the cupidity of our people , and in the
language of Bryan they "put the dollar
above the man. "
Ely" got his majority fqr regent be
cause he is from the northwest , and we
don't begrudge him his vote.
The fusionists carried the county for
every office except those named in the
foregoing , and next week we propose to
have something more on this subject.
Meanwhile we ask our fusion friends
to observe the vote Donoeer , Halm and
Crawford had here , and kick themselves

L was at the opening of the new
school house in A. K. Kuskie's district.
A certain class wanted to open it with
i. a d nee , but two of the board objected ,
mid it was opened with a religious ad
dress by the Rev. Iludspeth ; but not so
in our district , No. 2. The board put a
new lloor in the old school house and
stained itwith -dance and tobacco
spit , and to the disgrace of the board
and the community the morning after
election the teacher had to postpone I
school and send two large scholars with
her team to borrow a wagonbarrel and j
two mops to wash the tobacco spit out
of the school house. Two of the election - |
tion \ board picked up a part of an old j ;
stove and lilled it with sand , but the
dirty p gs would not spit in it. I say
pigs because a person who spits on i\\ \
house lloor is not worthy the name of a ;
man. ' When tire righteous are in
authority the people rejoice , but when
the wicked beareth rule the people
mourn. " PAUL PHY.
