Interstate News Record (Newspaper) - April 4, 1891, Ironwood, Michigan > ■    I-, i HALF? SHEET. INTERSTATE NEWS-RECORD. VOLUME 5. NUMBER 50. IRONWOOD, GOGEBIC COUNTY, MICHIGAN, SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 1891. $2.00 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE BOLD POLITICAL ASSASSINS, EXPOSE OF A SCHEME TO KILL" SENATOR STEVENS. Tim Nester, ex Greenbacker. ex-Pro- hibitionist, ex-Fusionist but now a Bourbon, is the Assailant. Kver since the foul Riot of the democracy to ruin the upper peninsula for political gain was first sprung in the present legislature, Lake Superior has had no more earnest, intelligent aud effective champion of her interests than Senator John ll. I). Stevens of Ironwood. Ile has ever lieen an uncompromising enemy to any and every man and measure that, threatened the welfare of that section, and has spared neither labor nor expense to crush them. No session of the senate has found him absent, save when illness or imperative duty in other directions forced him to vacate Ids seat. When, in persuance of a scheme to hoodwink the voters of the upper peninsula, a democratic caucus decided to kill the Doran bill, and the matter was brought up by them in Hie senate, and Hie republican Senator Millies, from Hie seventh district, moved to strike out tile enacting clause of Ute bill, which would have killed it for all time, every republican, including Senator Stevens, voted for tile motion, and every democrat voted against it. When an attempt was make to run in a substitute for tile Doran bill, prepared for the occasion in tile secret democratic caucus previously referred to, and railroad it through the senate with a simple rapid reading of it liefore that lindy by the secretary, Senator Stevens, who saw in this move a democratic dodge to enable the democracy to go before his people with that bill as an electioneering document, and fearing that these intriguers had designedly left a loop-hole in it. which would render it valueless to the upper peninsula in the end, arose in his place and protested, in Ins own behalf and that of the entire upper peninsula, against any such action. That gentleman said in effect that he was not yet ready to swallow with closet! eyes a dose prepared for him ami his people by a secret caucus composed of the leaders, whippers-in and lobby-liee of a party which had shown a deliberate intent from the outset to assassinate them. Ills words created a terrible buttering among these same democratic satellites, and sent them rushing all oyer the senate to efface the evident impression made by Uiat protest. “Why,” salt! Senator Stevens, to tile writer, “Tim Nester came to my seat and threatened me. He said that if I did not vote for that substitute—permit those robbers to cram that (lase down my neck without a whimper—he would ruin me in the ‘up* l»er country.’ I told him to get out, and not to come to me again, or I would have lulu ejected from the senate by the sergeant-at-arms. I would have punched itim myself, on the spot,” said tile doughty little senator with (lashing eyes, “lf I had not lieen senate chamber by a democratic lobbyist, and distroy, at one fell swoop, the hard-earned reputation of a young man, than whom the upper peninsula has no stronger champion, liecause forsooth, he could neither be humbugged, cajoled, nor frightened from his fidelity to his people, by a junta of democratic swashbucklers. For this has Senator Stevens been deluged, for two days with telegrams from frightened constituents. I^et them possess their souls in peace. Senator Stevens is no traitor. That he did right is now proven by the open threats of the democrats, that if the upper peninsula “goes back” on Champlin they will give them the Kirk hill, which is even more Infamous than Doran's. Who framed that Kirk hill, now lying in the house? Was It an up|ier peninsu-la traitor? Senator Stevens throws some light upon it, in an Interview this morning, as follows: “Senator, what of that bill of Representative Kirk, in t he house providing for a four-cent tax?" “it is more dangerous than the Doran bill, and is being held iii reserve, to spring on us, if deemed advisable,'’ “Who is its real author? It isn’t Kirk, is it?” democrats are in panic aud are trying to crawl out from under until alter election. So Friday they idetinitely postponed Hie bill. The republicans tried lo have it killed outright. Hut to this the democrats would not consent. Such a summary disposal of it would stir up the democratic farmers they fooled last fall. They have thus arranged to tell their dupes before the coming election that the bill will be WILL BLTI.!) AN OPERA HOUSE A SCHEME PROPOSED FOR ELEGANT THEATER.

Representative Munthe arrived here Monday from Lansing, and has been industriously engaged ever since in laying imliticnl wires to capture the pollster the democracy on Monday. Tuesday and Wednesday he superintended the distribution of several thousand copies of the l^tke Su|terior Demis'nit, a bourbon sheet of three months' standing published at Ishpeming. Mr. Munthe saw that the (tapers were properly eir-culated, and when he saw that a store or residence was skipped by any one of the half dozen small boys in his employ, the youngster was reprimanded and ordered to go over the ground again. A perusal of the I* S. Democrat revealed the secret of all this diligence. It was a scheme of the Democrat State Central committee, through the medium of the Uh joining organ ami their agent, Munthe, to antagonize tin* merchants, mine operators, and miners’of tho city, and if possible to secure their votes aud support for the democrat state ticket at Monday's election. The L. H. Democrat contained two columns of the rankest, democratic election buncombe that lias ever (dis) graced the columns of any paper.
