August 30. Is7i. G. Clements. Primary election. Before Tec go to press again the result of the primary election will be too Laic to affect the result and too Early to lie charged with interested motives try wish to Call attention to the Earnest words we spoke against the sex and Good results claimed for the plan of making nominations by Pri Mary at tic time tie matter being canvassed. We Uicon a of dissension and a incr tacos out of it which impossible in Pic convention Tjit it Engen dered such Strong personal canvass of the merits and of the Candi As to Render cordial support al Nostoc of the that the direct tendency was to Divide the party into lines would remain for Tunas the party and a cow rely every change of either it Cerully Hun not been a figured by the Canvas on the the peo ple have Boen Imp Nowd with constant import unities of one kind or another and drugged Luto hot Aid unnecessary buttons upon merely personal questions not relating to principles or but to questions not growing out of the Public but out of personal strife Between the aspirants for either on their own account or their friends. Plan May succeed fora in county is largely Republican As it would be immediately fatal in one where the majority is Small. The question of in certainly of too importance to run such risks when the questions of such moment Are involved. We were opposed to the primary to be Gin and lure seen nothing so for to justify us in changing our and have seen much to strengthen the Ohe we entertained beforehand. In View i of. Our experience in this it will be strange if our Wise citizens Ami oar Best republicans wish to continue a sys tem of nominations in additon to the inseparable annoyances of when limited to the questions at Issue Between the two parties brings in personalities of the bitterest kind. It is not at Alf certain that we strengthen stir Liber ties when we allow ourselves to descend to personal squabbles in the exercise of the elective franchise and it is Likely that in thus arousing prejudice and exciting enthusiasm on secondary questions we May in a measure lose sight of others of far More vital importance to us. The proper discharge of our duties As and our rights As a whole should have More weight with us than the per Sonal claims of any set of men. Tox Vox Bei. It is difficult to decide whether greater enormities have been committed against the rights of under the false plea of the right of or the equally insane cry of Ultra democracy the voice of the people is the voice of the intelligence of political scientists and men who have sought the Good of their race has led them to con clude that truth and right would be found Between these two extremities of communism on one and old time monarchy on the other. It is not our purpose to enumerate any of the enormities which we find detailed in the his tory of the and which resulted from either of the above false notions while Kings As Well is the people May often be and while it is undoubtedly True that Kings Are not so Apt to be right As an intelligent people where they Are directly interested in their own behalf ail he in it is equally untrue that the people never misjudge As to the proper course to pursue to secure their own rights. To was not our object in writing this article. On the it is our design to Call attention to the very Patent and practical fact that the people Are still misled by having their will assumed to be what it is and being thus in veiled into the sup of measures in the belief that it is the popular they Are made to Swallow them by a deft application of the fallacy that popular will must be the first question should is the As sumption and the the popular will Correct or mistaken naturally follows. The popular judg ment upon any question should be criticized and weighed by every thoughtful person with is much and even More than he would bestow upon the opinion of any one and the latter because the Public judgment vastly More influence upon his rights than an individual judgment. The Assumption that the people think so and so prior to an expression from and the further Assumption that they Are necessarily right Are far from being always even a modified affirmation of the belief the voice of tiie people is the voice of is somewhat remarkable when we review the historical decisions of Mankind in favor of wrong and consider the Wisdom of the almighty As displayed on every hand. V the opinion of Many men is Worth no More in than the opinion of one numbers Call Only for a mom careful consideration before and not for a More Hasty acquiescence. A decision with the Many the meant to imply that some one it mid limn u claimed i by some to to already made. If Cuch shallow pretences succeed in deciding Tho any or the it this primary it will prove that prejudice still where reason should. It is that men who know better will for the Sake of Success allow popular error to go mire baked. I _ Sunato Bial. There seems to be no end to the amount that can be Eliut subject just now. Several of tiie Veteran Iowa journalists have several times put the question at rest in their but somehow the subject will not Down and stay there at their bidding. It al most immediately Breaks out in a new place and in n More malignant in utter Defiance of theii1 unanswerable Fig ures and logic. The mention of other names in Connic Tion with the office. Tins not tended to b quench the fires already but has added fresh fuel. Some men Are born others grow to be great and Ai few have greatness thrust upon them. These latter Day candidates see i to belong to the latter class so far As anything Visi ble indicates. It is just possible Howe that they May have instrumental in the sudden and widespread mention of their names Vij Elf if a cannot conceive Why the announcements might not have been made in such a manner As to enable people to decide whether the mention of their names is by their authority or consent. a Little Morti to get a Man fairly on the track and then have him go Back on the whole thing with for the Confluence of his friends in his poor almost every Man has a Plain solution of the i he latest emanates from one and for a blushing impudence is not excelled by any we have seen. The Register gives him a severe and Well deserved castigation and it Falls unon him in the right place. For our we favor the re election because we know the Man and regard him As one of Iowa s greatest and Best and we do not know his present principal or. Allison. Because we Are in of or. Hurl an it does not follow that we must abuse and if we cannot urge tiie re election of the former without pursuing Sulci a course we will withdraw and Nek knowledge ourselves to be what All the Brood of Vili Fiers of or. Harlan Cuttle fish who cover up their Uncertain course by evacuating so much dark fluid that they can not be seen. It is a libel upon Ameri can politics that and fair Ness is not used. Among men of honest convictions who Are actuated by what they regard As the the there should be a decision to Stop Polit ical discussion w heaver they Are obliged to descend to the style to be on an Equality with their opponents. We do not ease where we thought such arguments did any Good and must say that in almost every Case i they do harm. We intend to do our let that be much or to. Secure Harlan s re election. We have no word to say against or. Allison. Let him stand on Bis merits. There is Good water in abundance on the grounds.

We Hare abundant proof that at in tic Power of tic cry the peo ple arouse Premji Hatice and Cotor up the real issues is still Strong. The As sumption that the majority is the a twin fallacy and to a Mikl assertion that the minority is not posed of people As Well. The Only right of majorities is to which is Nuques but that they arc even usually the state Board of equalization in its report places Voltl Jasper High up among the wealthy there Are Only twelve counties in the state More weal tin. Jasper is placed at almost six Mil Lions and since the tax is two it follows that our share of the state tax will Only be about or not much Over fifty cents to Ench inhabitant. Who will a fuss at this Small amount and make a big drive against the legis lature on account of High taxes when this tax can Only be increased one half and when every school Board can Levy ten times is much tax the people of Jasper county spend several times More Money for circuses and tobacco every year than on entire state tax and pay a ten times As much for local and county purposes As for the state.
