The Yellow-Jacket 15 Sep 1904, Page 3
I JOHN B. TRENT, Wapella, Ills. Dear ; Mis I ter Yellow Jacket: I have been reading your paper for a few months and I must say that you hit the . Democrats about right. j Y'ou can't say too much about that party that went into rebellion once and caused so much suffering and sorrow, and now thinks that it ought- ought- to be placed in power to run this . government. It Is all us Republicans can do to run it and wouldn't the Democrats play the Devil running I this country? What sort of a mess did they make when they had a trial? I am one of the boys that wore the blue, and I don't want to see the Demorats in power again. In fact they should not be given achance to have a hand at gov ernment control for at least one hundred years from" the time that they seceded. I have my first Democrat to ever vote for yet. If there is such a place as Heaven I don't want to spoil my 'chances of getting there by affiliating wlth Democracy. I was born in one of the meanest Democratic States in the Union, and that is Kentucky, where the only law they - know is Goebelism .
