CI'IFTON DO.KS A I/IT- TI-E The news columns of the Des Molncs Register nl 'e seldom WJ, OFFICIAL IS DEAD; UNCLE OFLAKOJAMAN Lnkota, Dec. 30-H. C. Pierce has news that tin uncle, II. C. Pierce, Omaha, is yen rs Mr. Pierce, 54 "colored" that It was «• surprise to -find several paragraphs of evidently deliberate coloring in a recent review by C. C. Clifton o£ the situation on tho spcnkershlp oC the House in the General Assembly "Which meets next month. Mr. Clifton turned the trick in tho accepted style. His first halt column was a purely news summar.\ ito which no exception could bo taken. It was brought put that the leading contenders were .). .1. Johnson, speaker of the last House, and "Francis Johnson, of Dickinson county. After giving the facts Mr. Clifton •went o n to glvv the purported records of the two Johnsons, ami it was here that the coloring appeared. In strict accordance with the code of newspaper colorists, tho color- Ing was done so cleverly that most readers would not see it. The colorists always Introduce their color •casually and dispassionately a s if It were a natural part of the story. The. intent is to deceive readers who cannot see through the trick. In this instance the color consist-ed oC giving speaker Johnson an appealing record and his rival a record intended to cast disfavor on •him. To this end use was made of the good roads issue, on the theory that practically everybody now favors the state program and anybody who has not been regular in the past will suffer for it. "Francis Johnson. . .has opposed all the recent highway legislation," •*ays Mr. Clifton. Jos. Johnson has been the House leader in the good roads movement. The difference . . .will have a bearing on the out-•come." And so on. This was giving the Francis Johnson record only as far as it would probably hurt him and giving the Joe Johnson record only so far as it might help him. There can be •no doubt that Mr. Clifton did this intentionally. Here are some outstanding facts Slaving a bearing on the matter -which Mr. Clifton unfairly omitted: During the 42nd and 43rd General Assemblies, J. H. Johnson consistently and constantly voted and •worked against Income taxation. 3Por four years he did all he could -•to retard and prevent tax revision. It was only after it was clearly evident that tax reform was inevitable that he climbed onto the.hand wagon. It is a well-known fact now -that practically all the dyed-in-the-wool anti-income taxers in the low- :er House are solidly lined up to back Joe Johnson. If he wins, those reac- "Uonarles will receive all the Important committee assignments. During the late primary campaign, -when it became evident that if Ed Ht. Smith won the nomination for ^governor there would be no tax revision. • •Smith. old, hnd never been sick, but died suddenly of heart disease, and is survived by his wife and five children, of whom two are married. Of the three divisions of the Western Union telegraph company, the Pacific, Atlantic, and central states, Mr Pierce was head of the central states division with headquarters at Omaha. H. C. Pierce, who is local manager of the telephone company, loft last week Wednesday to attend the funeral. His mother, who lives at Mason City, met him at Algona and accompanied him.
