POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS & ELECTIONS - United States (Cont'd) 1900 - DTD Oct. 4; ed:2/2 - The Akron BEACON represents Hale and Hamlin in speeches made by them. We think they have pitched into Pierce at an awful rate, and treated Scott gingerly; nay, to have plainly intimated that they wished the latter to be elected.

"Now, at the expense of seeming indecorous almost, we take leave to say that we consider the BEACON'S account a very gross misrepresentation, so far at least, as the speech of Mr. Hale was concerned....'

1904 - DTD Oct. 7; ed: 2/2 · The new election rules of last May are that one must be a resident of the state for one year and must be a citizen.

"It should be observed, that the law of last May,... makes but little alteration in the law of 1841, in Swan's Statutes 1020, 1, 2, and this law in Swan, will have to be looked to, to determine the questions arising in reference to voting."

(6)

1905 - DTD Oct. 7; ed:2/2 - October 12 is election day.

1909 - DTD Oct. 9; ed: 2/2 - Judge Spalding has made speeches the past week in this county. "The old Democrats are fast embracing the pure principles of Jefferson, under the persuasive eloquence of this champion of truth and justice."

(2)

1910 - DTD Oct. 9; ed: 2/3 - Horace Greeley has "split" on the platform of the national Whig party. Scott swallows that platform, and Greeley supports Scott.

"That is what our brother Booth of Milwaukee called the new process of accepting a platform. Booth has in him something of the real 'Attic,' of which most of his brethren have scarce enough to impart backishness to their hogsheads of wash."

(2)

1911 - DTD Oct. 9; ed: 2/3 - We admonish our friends to work hard at the state election on Oct. 12 and remind them of the election in November.

(3)

1913 - DTD Oct. 9; ed: 2/4 Candidates Wade and Case are being compared for their agricultural ability, it being claimed that Case ought to be elected because he is a farmer.

"But what the farmers, what all the inhabitants of this District especially need in a Representative, is manhood, gumption, and capacity to manifest these in the committees and on the floor of the House. And therefore, digging potatoes aside - though at that we hardly think any one acquainted with the two gentlemen will fancy Case would be likely to beat Wade."

1915 - DID Oct.9:2/5 - In a letter to the editor dated Oct. 6, "I" of
Solon says:

Pursuant to notice, the Whigs assembled in a mass meeting to the enormous number of about six, and about as many Democrats, with a house full of free Democrats, to hear the Hon. D. R. Tilden of Cleveland. His anti-slavery remarks were very good. He found no fault with the free Democrats, but thought they had better vote for Scott.

The Whigs sat spell-bound while the speaker held up in contrast the two generals striving for the presidency. The friends of humanity called for the Hon. G. Kent, who took the stand and replied to some of the errors of the first speaker, to the perfect satisfaction of those present. The friends of humanity are at work here.

"It is false all of it, and the PLAIN DEALER knows it.... Base must be that man who, under these circumstances will lie about the position of Mr. Hale; infamous alike in motive and action.

(7)

1918 - DTD Oct. 12:2/2 - In a letter to the editor, "Leander" says: "Last evening we had an eloquent speech from Hon. H. B. Payne."

He thought Edward Wade a good sound man, but he believed he would have no more influence in Congress than Giddings.

"Yet in defiance of the old parties, of their organization, of their wealth, and all that, the People without organization, and without a military chest, have carried the day in these districts, by giving Wade, near 1300 and Giddings almost 1300 of a majority."

(9)

1929 - DTD Oct. 16; ed:2/3 - There is only one Whig member of Congress in Indiana. Pennsylvania fared also as bad. No blame rests this time, with us the free Democracy. The fault is in you, and with you Whigs! It is center, all of it in your action. That is inconsistent, or false, and you suffer, you bleed at every pore; and the thorn which pricks you is of a tree of your own planting.
