The Irish President Coming.
Honorable Eamon de Valera President of the
Irish Republic will speak at Jackson on April 19th. I hope the people of
Jackson and the surrounding country may extend to this patriot a warm and
cordial welcome. He is engaged in a noble work for the freedom of
humanity. England has no more right to hold Ireland in subjection than the
Unites States would have to go down and take over Mexico and reduce its
citizens to a condition of vassalage.
No man who believes
in freedom of speech, freedom of action and the right to the products of
ones' toil can oppose the Irish cause.
TRUMAN H. NEWBERRY of Michigan has been convicted of election frauds and
fined $10,000 and two years in the Leavenworth Penitentiary. Whether it
was the result of an awakening of the public conscience or the use of
Ford's money that accomplished the conviction, I will not say, but I hope
the former. In any event, I am glad that Newberry has been convicted. Now
the good work begun should be finished by the United States Senate purging
itself of a rotten, criminal material.
Mr. Newberry will surely
resign and save his colleagues the disagreeable duty of voting him out.
The man who buys office himself or has some one buy it for him is not fit
for the place bought and should be expelled. The hireling and the flunkey
are on a par. Neither is fit to represent the people.
