THE ELECTION TS OVER.
The people of the United States yesterday decided that Wood row
Wilson should be re-elected President of the L'nited States.
In the country today, there is much rejoicing and there is also
und nbtcdly much bitter feeling. Otn* Hide is jnl>ilant over having
won a victory and tho other aide is dvvvueuat over having been sent
down to defeat.
At the head of .this article tin ro waves the American Hag. It
Wlfi put theie with t;*is thought in mind :--rhat we may be Republi
can#. or Democrats, or Socialists or Hr ?nibiti-.nists, or adherents cf
anv otLrr political faith, but that we are AMERICANS, tirst, last
and all the time.
The T ;i ii an have been dcfcate din electinc a president, il U
tr.!? ' y !:u\ H n^t now make u point of criticizing every action
f ; : -ciatic administration. Every citizen of the l'nited States
!. ; '-mbcr that national honor comes before political honor and
a d .ii should be given tho party in power.
ft- '!:? \? of peace, the handling of national affairs is a big enough
ta>k. but with many of the great countries of the world engaged in
war, tho prwMetn? that confront our administration are often ex
tremely complicated. Ono misstep might send this country into tho
pit of war. Only extreme caution can avoid it.
Ar.d why should not Democrat**. Itepublican?. Socialists and nil tho
other parties of the country, now that the election i? over, join in
pvinsr their heartiest support to Mr. Wilson? It is hard to pleaae
everyone, we admit, bul there is no nxcuse for continuous criticism
and fault-finding just because the pnrty in power doe-, not huppen to
be that to which the criticisers belong.? j
Tho majority of the people in the country hove expressed their]
choice for Mr. Wilr^on. The majority usually rules and it should i
rule in this case. The thing for all to do now is to forpet partisan j
politics and endeavor to aid and support the Democratic adminia- i
trat ion. which has won out.
And thin theory applies to l?*-al political condition-? as well as to
national affairs. We believe that the men who have, been elected to
the various offices which the voters in the county have bestowed upon
them, will give the county the be* t service -thai they ran.
Ir Rhort, now that the nation as a whole and each individual state,
county and township has made its choice, let in abide by the results
and remember that our first duty is to the fla?f that waves at the head
of this column and not the Republican or to the Democratic parties.
Tf the people of our country would only give about n tenth as
much time and interrat to religion an they do to politic*, we'd all be
a great deal better off.
When you hare read through thi* issue of the paper just take time
enough to let one fact sink into your active brain. The paper on
which this issue was printed has coat us more than what it cost us
a year ago. The ink we used is away up in price. The oil that keeps
the press revolving is up in price. In fact, every item of expen??e is
lip in the clouds and many are away shove them, and every dollar of
expense mean? just that amount of money right out of our pocket.
A great many subscribers are in arrears on subscription, and we need
that money in order to meet the rapidly increasing co*t of producing]
this paper. It is iimply thoughtlessness'on your part, we know, but
our own creditors do not recognize that word. It don't go with them
for an instant.
