EIGHTEEN NINETY- FOUR.
This issue of tho Argus is the first
of its 22rul volume and our hoary locks
have withstood the gentle breezes of
21 Christmas mornings, we never saw
a happier nor a quieter one than the
one just past.
We enter into the work with great
er prospects and brighter hopes for
1894 than it has ever been our pleas
ure to do before. 111 fact we challenge,
the world to produce a man who ever
saw a *94 until last Monday. Ws
glad to say that this paper has many
warm friends in this county who re
gard it as much a part of the county
as tke very soil we till. And many
others thete be, among our best busi
ness men, who cannot remember when
the Argus was not.
There have been some ohjectiens to
the paper; of course, there are objec
tions to anything, and sometimes it is
really an honor to be opposed by gome
folk, but we are try ing to remove all
causes for complaint and make our
paper the true exponent of the best
element of citizenship and in which
we cordially invite the co-operation
of all the good neoplc irrespective of
politics or creed
Jackson can fall only by division
and mismanagement, for a town as
full of push and energy, surrounded
by fertile fu Ids under the manage
ment of thrifty, competent farmers,
perfect railroad facilities, a strong
bank, and the healthiest location on
earth ean not but thrive it *vc remain
The policy of the Argus will be
conservative in all things, for we do
not consider those who differ with us
necessarily mean or fools, because
while we aie honest in our oonvic
tions, we realize - the fact that what
we don’t know put into the mind of
one mau would make that man the
smartest individual in the known
Shakespeare says, “When a man
loses money, he loses much; when he
loses friends he loses more, and when
he loses his energy, he loses all,” and
we claim to possess these las* two ele
ments in a moderate degree, and will
prove it if our friends will remember
us and the public at large view us and
our efforts with a charitable eye.
Every man wants every other man to
stand by and foster home enterprises,
provided always, said enterprise is his
property or is being run by him. When
his time comes to foster another enter
prise it is quite another proposition and
his inquiring mind immediately weude
“Where am I to come in?” But, not
withstanding the truth of the above
statement, it is the duty of every mau to
rise above himself in cases where the
public good is involved aud make that
necessary self denial required to bridge
the town or enterprises over the danger
line, aud every patriotic citizen will
gladly concede to this.
JUST FOR FUN.
One of the candidates for governor
should come square out as an adminis
tration candidate so we could have an
issue. It is a stale affair when both men
are democrats aud both worthy and de
serve the offiee and competent to fill it
if they live long enough which is more
than probable unless they they should
run themselves to death. Do something
gentlemen to make an issue everything
is too dull and of a sameness, one of you
favor bonds and the other oppose it, or
one claim the other Is too young and
the other too old,. Anything now for an
The special committee set apart to re
port on the policy to be pursued by the
democrats in the present Congress is a
democratic committee in fact as well as
name. They favor an individual income
tax of 2 per cent on all incomes of over
$4,000. That wont bother us yet for our
income will hardly reach that this year.
They also favor 10 cents per gallon addi
tional on whiskey, and one-quarter of a
cent a pound on sugar. They were speak
ing of a 5 per cent tax on inheritance, but
they saw that to be unnecessary as the
above would raise funds sufficient eco
