To the HaUettsville Herald.
Gentlemen : -Wo hope that
you will publish this letter in
the next issue of your paper for
tho benefit of the voters and tax
payers of this county.
As the Democratic primary is
to take place on the 28th inst, I
wish to explain a few things to
you and the people in general.
That we, the members of the
White Men’s Union, hereby pus
itively declare that wo do not
work in favor of any individual
candidate as has repeatedly been
staled, nor do we antagonize any
individual or party in special.
We merely fight for clean poli
tics and against the unsound
principles uud tricky practice
of certain politicians, of the
county, who to attain their own
selfish ends through personal
persecution of a certain county
officer would force the people in-
to political slavery and rob them
of their rights and power to vote
as becomes free tax payers and
We protest against any pres
sure being brought to bear
against county or precinct candi
dates, which forces them to avow
themselves to any party or binds
them in any way to support any
platform, but demand that they
be | entirely independent of all |
party influence and simply be
required to conscientiously do
their duties as servants of the
people when elected to office.
We further protest against
voters being misled by systema-
tic trickery and spreading of
lies by certain politicians and de
maud that politics be kept clean
and sound to suit honest men
and for tho best interests of the
