I I I GUOGER BLOWETU UIS . j, OWN HORN. From the Waynesville Courier. - Mr. Gudger lias issued a two page circular, kiler to enlightnn his con- J.it(ttentiiitfwtiom he calliM'iny peo. pie," and ' iddreaeesSt to "Slf dt-ar Friend", wlom lie undertakes to con vince that he in entitled to a third nomination for uonsresg. - -' While we are hot disposed to crit icise harshly Mr. Gudger's letter, we d teel it is misleading and should he reviewed a little in the light of plain facts, -so that the people may listen more attentively and dintingumh the true note of hiB .own horn thai ho 'do bloweth." "; f :; !: ; '' :-xy. , v-The firat note that "he Uiotetb," is VFree itural Delivery," as if all the credit were -due him for establish ment of free rural delivery, routes in the 10 ih congersssioaal uistrict du ring his term of service. Why, Mr". Uadger knows and he ought to kiiow that "My dear Friend" and "my peo plh" know that the Post Oflico De partment, under a general law, has absolute control ot the matter, and that alt a congressmen can' do is to tile the petition's of the people in the department and urge that the. route or routes be established.- No doubt Mr. Gudger did what he could. But the record shows' he did not have good success,' as this district has fewer rural routos'than any other district in the State. And it is a notable and shameful that the states of Ohio and Indiana get as much of the free rurol appropriation ' as the eleven states which comprised .South ern '.Confederacy,, Evidently the Buckeye and ' lloosicortGrressrnen have a greater pull wWi Post Master General Cortelyou.aud his subalterns than have the T&V Heels and other southern .congressmen.. But Mr. Gudger is not to blame for . this; he has done-what he could. There is no use, however, of his. "blowing his born" about something that there is so little in.. ' - : '.The second distinguishable note that "he tooteth" is "Seeds and books." Yes, seeds that the govern ment buys and books that the gov ernment prints, both according to law, which Ihe government divides equally among the congressmen to each of whom is furnished a secreta ry to send them out to the people, all at the expense of the government. Why "blow his horn about these things? Do they not belong to the people? And is it not the dutv of a congressmen to have them sent to the people who may desire them t Kicmond 1'earson, it we misUKe not is tbe only congressmen from this distriot who ever publicly notified the penpla that it would be necessary to' obtain the indorsement of a mem- berof a political committee in order to get seeds., The third note that "he tooteth,'' is "Buck Shoals , and - Mud Creek." He in going to blast out Buck Shoals in French Broad riyer' for the pur pose, of draining the' low lands of Mud Creek, In order that every body j owning lands along tbe creek may produce more corn, tie Jtas actual ly introduced a bill to the- effect and boast of it. : lie ought to include in that bill another provision, in order that -other counties in the district ought have some of "the little things' which he "deems important." Every body is tiot favored with mud rreek lands, but there are, quite a tew who have bill sides and even mountain tide's; therefore hit bill, to be fair( rhould also provide for hillside ditch es for the farmers. Does Mr. (iudg er believe such a bill will pass? Does he think that any., intelligent man believe'a-il? Congress appro priates public'money for the improve ment of rivers and harbors in the get eral interest pi trade and com merce, bat not for tbe interest of few private individuals. This is tbe spirit and intention of tbe Constitu tion, so that thd produott of labor in the field, gactorr, and mine may Hnd the beet markets of the world at least poiaible expense, thereby increamng the nation's wealth. But the note that "he tooteh" not, is "National Aid to PtiDlic Hoads." It will", be ' remembered that Mr. Gudger and Mr. Km art devoted much time tff.he tlii-wnsnion of this qnes. Murphy, !flnfl rn t Ku 1at eattinairvn Hnf. mftv "K " j 1, a itflt r.rf!.i.la. L ..f itk.A kAHtn in luiib f I l,llui.l MDjr VI 1119 iiwi ii is broken or worn out. Or may , be it has served its day and no longer charms the people. Mr. jGndger knew and. the. people' knew that no political party, either . Stato or Na tional had declared in favor of such a scheme, and they knew that there as no) a shadow of a show or hope of securing such legislation. The scheme mnst have been abandoned for "he tooteh hot his horn" on Na tional Aid to Public Roads." The fourth note that "he bloweth" is confused one" a hard one for Mr. Gudger to "toot" -but evidently he would have , those who hear - the sound' thereof to interpret it as meaning that be redeemed , the d is- J trict from the republicans, in tbe campaign o 1902. v"I worked and you worked," be says, "and tbe Dem ocratic party came again into power by a small majority." Yes, 183, re deemed the district ! Redeemed it by the magio power of his influence and the wonderful manifestation of enthusiasm which his . candidacy aroused among the rank and . file of the democratic party 1 The truih is this district was already redeemed from the republicans by 3000 demo cratic majority before . Mr. tiunger was ever thought of for congrers, by reason of the constitutional amend ment, disfranchising over 4000 nero Voters In this district . in 1901, and the taking out of Madison county in the rame year with 1000 republican majority.- So the issue of 1902 was not a question of redeeming the dis trict but holding it. It is an indis putable fj0tfial M.-;Guder'8jeaii-, didacy and campaigns" have never aroused the Democrats to enthusi asm, so as to bring out to the polls the lull strength of the party. Apathy and indifference were appar ent everywhere from start to finish, and consequently the stay-at-home voto was large,- which accounts for the loss of votes to. the party in the district. The Stay at-home vote is always a serious element to deal with in a campaign. It therefore behooves tbe Demociatio party to rally and reclaim the ground lost. The party nvist have new hope and new vigor, which Mr. Gudger can not (rive. We, therefore, do not believe the party will make Mr. Gudger the next standard bearer of this congressional district.
