Tho above picture is a likeness of Hall county's "Little Giant," William H.
Thompson, whom tho Democratic and People's Independent parties have named
as candidate for governor of our state and whom wo confidently expect tho peo
ple of this great commonwealth to elect to that office on next Tuesday. No
man more honorable, able or with more courage to take up tho duties that fall to
tho lot of that official cAuld have been named for Nebraska's governor.
Following are a few words of esteem from tho pcoplo among whom he lives:
Grand .Island, Ncbr., Oct. i6, 1902
To Whom It May Concern: As some wrong statements have been mado
and circulated among our preachers, I am glad to say, in the interest of justice
and fair play, that Hon. W. H. Thompson is regarded by the Christian people
of this community as a man of sterling character and a warm friend of the
Whilo he himself is not a member of any religious body, yet he is always
ready with voice, pen or pocket-book, to help on every worthy enterprise.
At the recent session of our annual conference his fine home was cheerfully
thrown open and a number of our ministers were welcomed as honored guests.

"I consider Mr. Thompson's nomination an excellent one from every .stand
point. Ho has been successful both as an attorney and as a business man,
and has shown himself to bo possessed of qualities of a high character that will
insure a clean and successful administration, in case ho is elected. Ho enjoys
the esteem of the people of Hall County and will undoubtedly receive a large
complimentary yoto in this locality."
Grand Island, Neb., Oct. 15, 1902.
Dear Sin: For the past nino years I have Jmown Hon. W, H. Thompson
quite intimately. Ho is an ideal neighbor and a public spirited citizen. And
also a succsesful business man. As Mayor of tho City of Grand Island he car
ried his business tact and rare administrative ability into the management of
public affairs and thereby won the confidence admiration of his fellow citizens.
Mr. Thompson has been a trustee of the Grand Island College since its or
ganization, for many years being tho Chairman of its Executive Committee. As
such trustee he has freely devoted his time, money and legal service to the
furtherance of tho intsrests of the institution.
I know Mr. Thompson's sympathy and influence are always on the side of
religion and morality. His contribution for tho support of both ministers and
churches have been both generous and frequent.
Very truly yours,
Geokgr Sutuhkland, Pres. Grand Island College.

W. H. Thompson is an old citizen pf Grand Island. Ho is honest and
honorable, his word is as good as a bond. He is a good father to his family and
a man in whom tho pcoplo of the state of all parties can have confidence in his
integrity. Mr. Thompson is a well-balanced man, with good ideas, he is pro
gressive and is one of the lawyers of the Stato who prefers to have a client set
tle cases ont of court than to drag them into court.
If elected the interests of the stato would bo looked after from a business
rather than from a partisan standpoint. One thing is certain, nobody can say
an iota against him as to his character, his capability as an attorney or as an
Grand Island, Oct. 16, 1902.
Dear Brother: I know from a great many years acquaintance with Hon.
W. H. Thompson, tho fusion or people's nominee for Governor, that ho posses
ses high ideals in regard to vutue and morality. If elected I know that his ap
pointments will be mado on merit alone. Rest assured that he will give this
state an administration free from railroad influeuco and petty partisanship. We
will all join in rejoicing when the present "accidental" governor is succeeded by
one in whom all Christians may have confidence. Very cordially,
Bayard H. Paine, Supt. First Methodist Sunday School.
The board of county commissioners finished their labors last Saturday.
We want to say right here aud now that the members of the present board, re
gardless of politics, are conscientious, painstaking, honest and earnest in their
efforts in behalf of the people. Each county commissioner shows a desire to
do the best possible for the county and in the least amount of time which is a
decided inovation from the tactics pursued by some of the old board. Messrs.
Duncan, Lore and Caha each have all the personal business at their respective
homes that they can look after, without spending any unnecessary time for the
county. This is one of the best boards the county has had tor some years, and
we think it is but just to state this fact for tho benefit of some of our citizens
who may not know.
The Volante, a paper published monthly by the students of Grand Island College,
has the following to say of Hon. W. H. Thompson
The Volante is not a political organ and therefore advocates the election of no can
didate on merely political grounds. We are not acquainted with the republican can
didate and can therefore bear no testimony to his high qualifications for the the office
to which he aspires. But we have known the Honorable W. H. Thompson for a good
many years and speak with regard to him from a somewhat intimate acquaintance.
Mr. Thompson is recognized by all who know him as a clean, true man. He is a man
of ability. He made an excellent mayor of Grand Island and has tho qualities to make
a good governor of the state. Mr. Thompson is interested in all public matters. He
has been a capable trustee of Grand Island College from the beginning of the school,
and has done much for its advancement. His library has always been open for the use
01 me siuaents anu ms jatcn string nas always been out lor tliose connected with the
school, Mr. Thompson is recognized as o Tend of law and order, of morality and
religion. Mr. Thompson has always been a friend of the students, and while we do
not say these things to advocate his election, yet we regard it as the duty of those that
are acquainted with him to say what they know, at a time when all records and charac
ters are placed under the blazing search light of public scrutiny. Mr. Thompson is a
man who will stand the test.

A. M. Morrissey, the Democratic and Popnlist candi
date for senator in this district, was born December 27th,
1870, at Livania, New York. In the spring of r8go, hav
ing caught tho western fever, he came west and located at
Chadron, where three of his older brothers were then living.
Soon afterwards he entered the law office of Judge Alfred
Bartow and began the study of law. He remained in this
office until the fall of 1892, when he was appoitcd Deputy
County Clerk of Dawes county and Iield this postion for
two years. With th6 money thus earned he completed his
education and was admitted to the bar in 1895. He imme
diately entered tho practice of -his profession, assciating
himself with Captain Allen G. Fisher, of Chadron and thus
continued until tho spring of 1898, when he removed to
Valentine, his present home. In the fall of 1898, after
a hard campaign, ho was elected County Attorney of
Cherry county, running seventy votes ahead of his ticket.
So acceptably did ho fill the office that in 1900, when the
county gave MoKinley, for president, a majority of 225 it
re-elected Mr. Morrissey, on the fusion ticket, by a ma
jority of 314. In tho four years that he has been County
Attorney of Cherry county, the largest county in the state
and one of tho largest cattle producing counties in the
world, ho has distinguished himself as a fearless and sue
cessful prosecutor; he has bout up the largest "practice en-'
joyed by any lawyer of his age in western Nebraska; and
has so endeared himself to the people of his county that
the leading business men Including bankers, merchants and
cattlemen, without regard to party, join in expressions of
confidence in his ability and integrity and freely declare
their iutcntion of supporting him for tho senate on Tuesday
