lloV THE MACHINE VOKK.
The objective point iu every a
point incut is Hansom's re-election to
the United States Senate. Every ap
pointment is made with that under
standing. It is a question of local
"pull." Not who deserves he ap
pointment; not who has won it by
long and valuable party nervice; not
who is the mof,t capable man; not
who the people want, but who ha
the strongest "pull" in fixing prima
ries ihat will nominate Ransom men
lor the legislature. A decision is
not reached without difficulty in
a cask in point.
In the fight over the Winston pout
oiTicc, for instance the are five cand
idates, and all of tbetn show good
local endorsements. One of the
leading candidates was the former
postmaster under Cleveland and un
der both the departmental and exec
utive rule he is int lligible. Yet Sen
ator Hansom ugres his appointment.
He is a machine politician and Kan
som needs bin services. He is en
dorsed by men who direct and con
trol county nominations; hence his
preferment over a one-legged confed
erate soldier who has been a life-long
loyal, ardent Democrat. The inelig
ible man may not be appointed, but
tl.e contention bears that aspect at
this time. If made, this appoint
ment will aptly illustrate the relent
lessness of the "machine" and its ab
solute iudifferance to common decen
cy and public opinion. It can not
be construed otherwise than as a re
jection upon the other candidates.
Is found in the Keidsville office.
Ex-hheriff (ialloway and Dr. Courts
are the candidates. Galloway has a
splendid war record, made a popular
sheriff, and all his life has been a
wheel horse in the Democratic band
wagon. Nobody knows that he has
got on his knees and begged the
Ihiss"1 for the appointment, and the
men who are backing hini are not
pendiug sleepless nights arranging
Kansom primaries in Rockingham
county. Courts, it is known, is an
avowed Ransom man, has had some
legislative experience and is an ally
of tho defunct Democratic congress
man from that district. What suits
Williams suits Ransom, and notwith
standing he has been an applicant
for another office, the chances are
that be will get the Reidsville post
office without much trouble.
The stamp clerk appointment at
Reidsville made by Rcvenuer Sim
mons, is another sample of machine
work. Watt, the appointee, was a
belter and went off with the John
Webster independent movement in
Rockingham. Like his leader, Web
ster, he was maligned and abased as
a traitor, but in a contest for Demo-
(Coutinued on Second Paga.)
