You NEED an Ekcomoor! oftftisbion Challenges Jensen to Debate Issues. To the voters of Kossuth county: I have stated my position on timely questions and have also Invited my opponent, Mr. Jensen, to Jointly discuss the Issues in debate or through the columns of the press, but up to the present I have had no response. My position was stated early purposely in order that there would be ample time for honest discussion and also to give the voters an opportunity to judge intelligently the qualifications of the contending parties. It is a duty of candidates who aspire to become public servants to keep the public 'informed as to their attitude on questions that are vital to the people of the state and this particular case is no exception. The people of Kossuth county are entitled to know Mr. Jensen's position on Issues set forth in my declaration of principles and especially are they anxious to know just how he justifies his actions relative to the "Salary Grab." As I have stated in the beginning my part of this campaign will be played in the open and above board and I sincerely hope that my opponent and those who are in sympathy with him will have the courage to do likewise. Let anyone who has anything to say concerning me or my platform speak up now, or forever hold their peace. Resorting to a whispering campaign or waiting until the last issues of the press before the election and then coming out with a pile of political bunk is unfair, unsportsmanlike and unmanly. Tactics of this-nature deprive the opposing candidate of an opportunity for a rebuttal and are no more honorable than sneaking up to an opponent and striking him when his back is turned. We asraln invite Mr. Jensen to state his position on the platform or through the press.—A. H. Bonnstetter.
