It must bo humiliating indeed, for a man like Hon. H. C. Sherwood, democratic nominee for congress, a man who holds up his head like an Knglish lord, to lower himself to visiting saloons at St. Joseph. Denton Harbor, Watervliet and other places, soliciting votes, stopping on tho streets and shaking bands with old bums" and asking their support. How do such things look for a man who aspires to represent tho fourth congressional district and mako laws for the peorle? Now, every voto cast lor tho third party candidate helps to elect this man Sherwood. Compare him with a man like Mr. linrrows!
