This is the important election and not the general election in november. The reason for this is that Pennsylvania is predominantly Republican and in most sections of the state a Victory at the primary election cinches the general election. At the primary election candidates Are chosen As Standard bearers of their respective parties. It is a strictly party affairs taking the place of the old conventions which were More easily controlled and dominate by political Bosses. Primary elections can be in us controlled by demagogues but it is easier for the people to throw off this domination if they so desire. And it ought to be the desire of every True american to do so and he will do so if his patriotism is not or the screech Eagle Type an he has not sold his Birthright for a mess of Pottage. We believe there Are enough of such real americans in Bristol to throw off the Yoke of political bondage with which we As a town. Have been cursed for these Many years. This political bondage is being maintained by a pernicious system of bread Basket control and financial intimidation whose beneficial ramifications touch every phase of Borough life.
