Proposed Waterworks Bonds Are  Sold; Many Bids Were Received  As to the Citizens’ Alliance  OII EXCITEMENT  M  99  Since lh* publication, a few days; ago, ot the agreement af the badness men to organize the Citizens’ Alliance, there has been much discussion of the matter, pro and con. and it is evident that there is more or less misunderstanding about the whole matt*.r.  This m i sn lid er st a nd i n c dot*s not only exist anions the* woikiuc men who seem to think that the whole movement is antagonistic to them but man\ of the business men themselves seem to have fallen into the error of letting misstatements in regard to it go un* challen  After Several thorough readings of the document, and atter kmhuiag the leading business men on the question, we are convinced that the intentions and purposes of the organization is not what they are reputed to be by those who seem to be aggrieved.  Ii is as clear to us as the noonday sun that the business men of this city have nothing in View but the city’s perpetuity    and    well  being; they advocate nothing, so far as we can    see.    that    an>    tan-  minded man can object to.  Thee do not believe in a closed shop 'own. aud the} a’e entitled to their belief, jus! as much so as the farmer, carpenter, painter, printer or an> other craftsman is entitled to his.  They stand for the right to conduct their individual bus!nesses as seems Im si to them, that right meaning that    they    are    to employ  both union and nou-union men if they see fit.  They are opposed to boycotting a man in the right to cain wage, and living because he TOES NOT belong «»»“"'»“• J™ 1  “ they are opposed to boycotting the man WHO BLLONG8 to til*  union in "his right to do the same thing.  In other words, they are in favor of liberty rather than dictation and tyranny and they declare themselves in favor 01 extending that liberty to every free born citizen, whether he happens to  belong to some organiatlbtt or not.  Vs an example A man may belong to the Masonic order, but certainly he wouldn’t discrin inate against a man who didn t happen lo belong to that tender. You might be a Woodman, but if >ou ai* a good Woodman you wouldn’t think of refusing to employ a good man simply because he didn’t happeu to belong to hat order.  What ihe business men of Ada Want. as we see it. is to avoid the closed *hbpi to a\od the strife and turmoil that has Always attended closed shop towns throughout the whole country, and to continue their business in the same free aud unhanipcrtu manner that has brought to them the «uecess which they have  already attained.    ,  They believe Iii every man gelling all he can justly earn. ana they pledge ihem>elv*s to protect him in so doing, union or not. so iong as he obeys ihe law and conducts himself as a good citizen Frankly, how can any element of citizenship that is oigani/en justify themselves in a fight against organization on the part O’  another element?    .    ..  The fact is, the whole matter is a tempest in a teapot, ana ail that is needed to straighten it out and forget it is for every man to grant every other man the same liberties that he takes for himself A practical application of the golden rule will settle the whole matter, and a man who isn’t willing to practice that rule isn’t worth courting an>way.
