Button now a Law yer of Winlock and publisher of the but formerly a Well known i mover and probate judge of county Dakota and a True Blue Republican from the word that gentleman having heard of or. Swasey a nomination inquired to bin Prospect for election us mayor. The Scriln informed him that they were excellent whereupon Buxton that he had Lucen acquainted with judge Swazcy for Over dec Van years in the same qualities which have in ado him one of the lending lawyers of Lewis county had Given him a High position a lawyer and advocate in Dakota and elected him municipal judge in the City of Wahpeton a position which he filled with Honor and credit to himself and to Tuo satisfaction of the Community judge swum by is a Man of Broad and Liberal views and ban arrived at the age when hts experience an a business Man and a lawyer will help him to discharge the important duties of mayor and will help to keep Centralia in her present pathway of Grant and unexampled Prosperity. Before party lines were drawn in. Dakota or. Swaezey and i attended the congressional convention a delegates from the same county where his abilities were recognized by the convention in his appointment on important com i t tees. He is approachable gentlemanly and conservative thinks twice before acts never forgets his friends and will give the same Friendly recognition to the voter after election As before. I Trust the judge will make the Riffle. In Wahpeton judge Sweney was regarded As a Man of unimpeachable pub Lic and a Nate character and he was very popular with men of All or. Buxton is a Man in the thirties with a Bright Blue Eye and a taking address. No individual preferences to express. The news As Independent newspaper ii bound to clique or faction and can afford to express its convictions. For some of the gentlemen nominated for the Council we have the highest esteem while there Are others who Merit in our opinion no. Consideration at the hands of the people of Centralia. Ai heretofore stated the news recognizes no desire on the part of any class of our citizens to interfere in the legitimate business of any other class. Everyone concedes that there must be a strict and impartial enforcement of existing Laws by the officers of the City. Further than this there a but one question at Issue which is who can do the most for the the City s interest in the future. There most be no dallying or trifling. Prompt and decisive measures must be taken in regard to waterworks electric lights sewers and Street improvements. Any body of men who will accomplish these measures will be reasonably Satis factory to the no Man can make out from the above which Side of the municipal Issue or. Simpson will take if he is not afraid to take any. Ave have often wondered if or. Simpson will also straddle the Issue in the general election next fall for Feur of losing this or that advertiser. It is the old practice of the a certain Sharp cornered apostle characterized As neither hot nor cold. But now to put the question squarely when the news does t print the Tele graphic news and does t take part in politics what in to Cutee the people to read it and what Good Wilt it do its and Vertie Ere even if it does t Hurt their feelings Why if it is not afraid do ii it list name the men who Are the others who do not Merit consideration instead of of sting suspicion on All of both tickets Therewa Dinita that it is like every one else in Centralia in favor of Clec tric lights Street ears and and it is because they Are in favor of getting them in As soon As pop Eible that he people of huh City insist that none of the old Council shall be re elected. They do not want another summer spent As was last in weekly debating Socie ty11 meetings and Windy speeches. The Man who has the management of such Buel cer Ljung a no from the fact that lie Haa never lived in a startling thing Lor the Republican party to face and it must face it with courage and Wisdom. In new York City copies of Are printed daily. Less of these Are Republican. Iat two fifths of the of new York City and its Are read ing democratic papers democratic version of things and the Young people of households Are being educated unconsciously against the party of their fathers. In Boston the papers of the greatest circuit Ion Are also democratic. The same 3s True of Large City in the Issac try the democracy Lias pressed conquests to the agricultural press and last three or four years Many Farmers papers of the West have become advocates of free Trade. It was largely through this line and the farm ers Alliance established systematically with All democrats and weak kneed re publicans in the neighbourhood gathered into its folds. Then they were supplied with free Trade literature secretly and constantly. Such a propaganda has never been known in America As that of democrats in their Hunt in through a changing press in behalf of free Trade in the West to-dfi3r, and i sub Mit to you As republicans that it is time for our party to take notice of what the opposition party is doing by increasing and strengthening its a Beautiful residence. Anything in bugs in october 1ss8, cent in a was a candidate for the pc Tate capital. It was a matter of local Pride and nearly every body Here Volet for it. Or. Crosby peddled olympic tickets at the election and secured of the forty nine vites cast for that City. There were 440 Voles capt for Centralia. The never raid any thing again tit the personal character of Crosby which we believe to be above reproach. The personal character of no Nan is on trial in this election and Only Ais Public act i Are it is admitted on All Side that there is no question in this Campaign of License or no License.

If any Reader in 11 make out from the following any inkling of what its editor s convictions Nacho is a Mill Reader indeed the Outlook for the municipal Campaign As it appears to the news is in a very confused state. Two tickets Are in the Field neither of which represents the wishes of the people of Centralia. The gentlemen who have received the nominations for mayor on the part of either faction do not come up to our Ideal of what Centralia h mayor should be. Either individually May be a very Good Man. But in our opinion Lonie stung More than negative q required in our chief executive officer at this time.
