The Argüí thlnka t mlght be well lo ask nmottg others the editor of this paper hou to ííain republican votes. It is un easy quesüon to aniwer: Just let the Arus editor loóse every week in li is columns like unto the last issue. Some way tlie uíuiiI cautious 'iiilluence" was withili-awn, and he ratllcd away at everytliinr.
