to amount to about $1,000,000. He
sailed from Havana Oct. 2, ostensibly
for New York to consult with the
members of the firm of J. M. Ceballos

nesday that the assets of the tlnn

after a hasty examination he thought
they would require careful husband
ing. Accountants are now at work
on the books of the company. It was
stated unofficially that there was
ground to hope that the assets would
be sufficient to cover the losses of tho
firm and that It would be enabled t.

HON. J. F. BOYD,
Republican Nomina for Conrfr.
A STRONG CANDIDATE.
September 24, 1906.
The action of the republican con
gressional convention in the nomina
tion of Hon. J. F. Boyd was one of
wisdom and a Just recognition of the
rank and file of tho party. Judge Boyd
Is one of the common people; he be
longs to them and they belong to him,
and this result will be demonstrated
at the November flection. He Is able,
clean, fearless in the advocacy of what
he believes light; these and other com
mendable characteristics have won
him friends everywhere. The nomina
tion Is one which Is acceptable to the
people of the whole district, and espe
cially so to the people of the Judicial
district whom he has served so faith
fully, and exceedingly grateful to his
J. F. Boyd was born In Fayette coun
ty, Pennsylvania, August 8, 1853, nnd
is 53 years of age, in the prime of life,
and with the wisdom and experience
that is only gathered by the lapse of
time. His parents were of Germnn
Seotch descent, a race that In Its
rugged integrity and force of character
has filled many of the brightest pages
of Americun history. With his parents
lie removed to the vicinity of Gulvu,
111., in 18G7, and remained on the farm,
assisting in It? operation until 22 yrara
of age. In addition to attending the
district pchool, he had the ndvantage
of two years' higher study In Ablngton
college. Commencing the study of law
at the age of 23, in the office of T. E.
MllchrUt, who was afterwards United
States attorney for the northern dis
trict of Illinois during President Harri
son's administration, he wan admitted
to practice by examination in open
court by the supreme court In 1878,
und Immediately thereafter entering
tile office of his preceptor as a partner,
remaining five years. In 1883 Air. Boyd
removed to Nebraska and located at
Oakdale In the practice of the profes
sion for which he hail been fitted by
well directed study and practice In
court. Mr. Boyd has been prominently
identified with the growth of Antelope
county and has been active in all pub
lic enterprises which have come, with
in his sphere of inlluence. While not
an offlceseekcr, and not an office
holder in the common acceptance
of the term, he has frequently
been called upon to fill positions of
trust and responsibility. Twice he was
elected county attorney of Antelope
county. In 1888 he was nominated for
this position and elected und was re
nominated by acclamation In 1S30 and
ran H60 votes ahead of the ticket. In
1892 he was again nominated and elected
In face of a majority for the populist
Dakota City, Nebraska,
October 15th, 2:5Q
Gome Out and Hear The:
ticket, that ran Into the hundreds. In
l'.mo he was nominated for Judge of the
Ninth Judiiinl district an. I was elected
by a majority of 291, running 300 ahead
of President McKlnlry in Antelope
county, and being the first republican
ever ekcted In the district. He was
renominate! In 1903 and was elected
by a majority of 1,700. In nil of these
firms the affair of the olllce were con
duiteil In a manner satisfactory to all
law-abiding citizens. While electej
upon the republican ticket, on taking
charge of the office Its affairs were
placed on the high plane that raises
the Interest of the public above and
beyond self and party. At the end of
tho second term as county attorney he
was pressed to again become n candl
date, but realizing that there were oth
er men In the party worthy of recognl
tiou he gratlously declined In their fa
vor. A man's worth and popularity
should In a manner be measured by
the regard In which he Is held by
neighbors and associates. Gauged by
tM! HtandarJ Mr, Boyd-Is In jpvery re
spect a model candidate. In Oakdale
and adjacent townships he has always
received thf Indorsement of n hand
some majority. Always easily up
proached by the great body of tho
so-called common people, this char
acteristic has been retained on all oc
laRlons. Poverty In his eyes Is neither
a crime nor a bar to friendship, but al
ways rather an added plea for help
and assistance when required. No
poor man ever appealed to him In
vain for legal advice or assistance In
a i!iciitot"ous case. Often he has de
frayed the expense of litigation from
his own resources. Money nor the lack
of It was never allowed to defeat the
ends of Justice. Starting In life without
a dollar, Mr. lioycl has been successful
in all bis business enterprises and now
owns and successfully operates one of
the largest stock farms In Antelope
county. Not in the least of his business
ventures which have proved remunera
tive Is an experience In the newspaper
business. In connection with his
brother he published a paper at Galva,
111., and the two also successfully man
aged the Onkdale Sentinel for a couple
of years. Mr. Boyd has ulways been n
i lose student and to this fact more than
anything else is probably due the high
rank he has taken as a lawyer. While
he has risen to high eminence In this
respect, yet to all his old friends he Is
still familiarly known as Frank, a title
more honorable and carrying with It
greater reaped than that which can be
bestowed by kings. For the office of
i onKi'i HHiiiiin the republican party has
a ci'inllilate. that Is at once self made
anil a credit to, his creator. Norfolk
