McKean Democrat (Newspaper) - June 22, 1922, Smethport, Pennsylvania
Page four the Democrat thurs.-, june 22, 1922. The Mckean Democrat Russell Lindsley editor and manager. Entered at the Post office at Smethport pa., As second class matter Smethport pa., 22, 1922. Editorial the smoke of Battle is now Over and All the smoke was on the Republican Side. The smoke May dissipate but the bitter taste of the Dregs of defeat will remain. Honesty and Harmony Are going to land John Mcsparren in the governor s chair of Pennsylvania together with the entire Peerless democratic state ticket As surely As the Sun shines. People of Pennsylvania de Mand a thorough clean up at Harrisburg. The Republican party had the Power and the Chance to do the missed its Opportunity in not. Presenting a state ticket which would be relied upon by the people. John Mcsparren will do the Job. 4 a 4 if our memory serves us correctly a move ment was on foot about this time last year to construct a badly needed swimming Pool and bathing Beach for Smethport kids Young and old right away. The Democrat would like to know How that laudable undertaking was allowed in die. When our citizens can afford to Send hundreds yes thousands of dollars away every year for foreign temporary Highway construct Ion and for the Savages of the unenlightened Corners of the Globe it would seem that a few dollars could be withheld for the Benefit of the Savages at Home. How in Heck is a Feller Goin to keep Cool arid clean in hot weather if he Ain t got no place ? the Democrat Hopes that swimming Hole committee shows some signs of renewed life i Stanter. We have five dollars to help them help the kids. It was generally supposed that a citizen of the United states was just As much on Home soil when standing on the deck of a vessel flying the stars and stripes out on the bosom of the Broad Atlantic As if he were standing on the Pennsylvania. John Mcsparran is a Man of people his Brilliant record attests for the fact that he is competent to make one of the Ablest governors Pennsylvania has Ever had. If any is entitled to be compared in the same1 breath As the great emancipator Mcsparran can aptly be referred to As the Lincoln of Pennsylvania. He will clean up conditions in Harrisburg even Tho the stench mounts to the heavens. He is virile fearless and furthermore possesses the ability to do what he sets out to accomplish. Dusty Crossroads at Jonesburg Iowa apparently is not the Case. But such after National prohibition became effective it at once became apparent that out infant Todd Ling merchant Marine born of the War and which the rank and file of american citizens desired to see Prosper was doomed to go to the discard through the Workings of our Peculiar prohibit Ion Law. Tourists Many of them getting out thirsts unrestricted chose to travel on ships of foreign lines on which the bars were opened after pass ing beyond the three mile limit and not on the dry boats of a dry nation. The american people wondered How the u. S. Shipping Board was this situation which threatened a general Boycott of american ships. The question was answered last week when it became known that with the consent of chair Man Lasker of the shipping Board and with the knowledge of the highest executives of the present Republican National administration the palatial liners flying the american Flag Are pro 1 1 Tii Iii so a it i n ill Hilll 11 us ii 1 Elul ruled with bars just As. Wet and just As efficient i Liioi r r. I would have no More Chance for Success in the state House at Harrisburg surrounded by the the country faces one of the greatest strikes in its history heaping another Cross on the Bent shoulders of an already overburdened people. Catering by the government to special classes has at last accomplished the inevitable deadly result and famine woe am death will be the portion of the people unless a Miracle in the form of intelligent treatment of the situation intervenes. There is an insistent Rumor from unofficial sources in Washington that George Harvey who for to these Many months has continued to misrepresent these United state s at the court of St. James is about to be recalled. The Mon key shines of the misfit mis representative Are apparently jarring on the hardened nervous sys tems of the. Republican Powers that be lately the fact was disclosed that a member of the Harvey family was engaged in the nefarious work of smuggling arms and munitions into Naples Ireland to Aid the thorough Job of self destruction being carried on there. Maybe a few More Breaks and the administration Wil have enough of Harvey As the people of am Erica already have. To it George Carmack one of the party whose Gold strike opened up the Klondike Dies in Vancou ver. The Telegraph wires laconically announce it in 20 words. Eastern civilization is too Busy Hunting Goli in its own Way to great heed to the passing of a Pioneer of the far Northwestern Goldfields but in Alaska the death of or. Carmack is big news. With the perspective of time it is seen tha the Yukon Gold Rush after All was not intrinsically of Large significance. But it led toward the commercial and Industrial opening up of. The far North whose Timber Coal fish meat and Grain will be its real times. The defeat of Gifford Pinchot at the election of a Republican state chairman of Pennsylvania when the contractor ring ran a steam roller Over his candidate and elected Harry Baker a Penrose Henchman to conduct the Campaign is a Concrete illustration of the futility of any at tempt Pinchot May make to put into operation any progressive ideas or plans in this reactionary Boss Ridden state. But the worst feature of the affair was the evident insincerity of Pinchot himself in Rushing up and congratulating chairman Baker. Pinchot each Day the Fordson Way from a thirst quenching Point of passing the three mile limit As any vessels Fly ing any foreign Flag in other words Uncle Sam while he s ays to the average Humble american thou Shah and Newberry s. From the alcoholic cup and while his agents in quest of violators of his edict have repeatedly ruthlessly invaded the Sanctity of Humble am Bosses of the old guard faction than president Harding has Success in the White House sur rounded by the Daugherty the fails the Den Erica Homes evidently does not regard it As a crime for his More affluent subjects of the tourist class to wet their whistles when they feel inclined. At any. Event he now stands exposed As a Bootlegger serving their fastidious alcoholic tests rather than to lose their a. B. A. Travellers checks. The expose of the pigs ear status of the Majestic liners of the american shipping Board has naturally aroused a nation wide stir and an old world laugh. Prominent prohibition leaders Are astounded at the new Complex turn of National prohibition or National Lack of prohibit Ion. Wayne b. Wheeler suggests that to avoid the necessity of Selling red Eye on american liners which he admits is necessary for the Success of our new merchant Marine under pres ent conditions Competition of wet boats should be eliminated. He makes the profound amazingly Brilliant suggestion that to accomplish this All boats having bars in operation on the seas should be barred from american ports just like or. Wheeler evidently forgets what isolation did for Russia for the fact that the vessels of All nations have bars deters him members of the British mount Everest expedition have reached a height of feet and clone it without resorting to the use of oxygen or other artificial Means. It was straight Moun test of human endurance of a most difficult and dangerous sort., from the Point they reached it is Only feet to the top. Last summer they failed. Very Likely they will win this summer. Another dash or a Success of dashes and the highest Pinnacle of this Earth will be attained it is the biggest sporting thing left since the poles were reached. And through the fact has unquestionably much scientific value of Many kinds it is chiefly the sporting element in it that makes it of Universal Appeal. Who would not like to climb to the Summit of the highest Mountain in the world for the Beauty of the scenery Enro Ute the dizzy glory of looking Down from a great height the self satisfaction of having performed a tremendous task or even for the reason that so Many people do so Many strenuous to say you be done and after Everest what then men of Strong limb and keen Eye and steady nerve will the cleanest farms in any Community 1922 sat Fordson farms have that reputation. Early fall plow ing is what keeps these farms free of weeds. That s easy to talk about but How Are you going to plow the ground is so hard and dry and the weather so hot that a team can t that probably is your objection to the formula. Use a Fordson Oliver blowing is the answer. Heat and hard soil and dry weather Don t bother a bit when you use Fordson Power instead of horses. Early fall blowing with a Fordson tractor and an Oliver no. 7 plow will enable you to turn Over the soil the time you know it will do the most Good.
