rather than from political bosses Tou
fe liable to boyoj trouble Retting 'around
that bit ofcloislc.
Tour contfiitlon that none (but demo

only Indefensible, but extremely Imprac

you slam the door In their faces and tell
thejn to go? It would bo a fine return
fqr their sacrifice of party ties In aiding

hidebound partisanship would bo punched
full of boles, as It should be. I have no
patience with It myself. I advocated tho
mU of the people before, the election,
eien spefcljy declaring time and again
In public speeches for the election of
poslm8tofs and federal Judges, und I
uni going to practice It as tar as I can
otter the election.
You state In your letter in Hut nr...
sent to my district that you will refu
to endorse any democrat who received
tbe endorsement of the people at an open

docs you a great Injustice In the first

ore completely reversed, your rocomnu'nd

rndotsemcnt of the pooplo of a democrat
for pottmasler I shall stake my iolltleal
future Jn .behalf of the rights of the po

bosses. It will bo a contest I shall enjoy
.U. the keenest degree, and the vordlct of
