Appoint Springer to
Edward H. Springor, postmaster at
Brady, was appointed county commis
sioner yesterday afternoon to succeed
Geo. W. Roberts, who resigned, but
lator attempted to withdraw the resig
nation. There were three applicants
for the position, Mr. Springer, Mr.
Roberta and George Schrecongoat. John
Koliher, of Maxwell, had been a can
didate for appointment, but when Mr.
Roberts entered the race Mr. Keliher
withdrew. But one ballot was taken,
County Clerk Yost and Treasurer
Durbin voting for Springer and County
Judge Grant for Roberts. Mr. Springer
was backed by a petition containing
over two hundred names: Mr. Roborts
had a putition with about two-thirds as
The opposition filed charges of a
serious nature against Mr. Springer,
but tho man with whom the charges
originated submitted an affidavit deny
ing that he had made any such charge
and furthor stated that he favored the
appointment of Mr. Springer.
Mr. Springer served as a commis
sioner for several years and is credited
by uninterested parties as having made
as good commissioner as the county has
ever had, and this writer, who watches
county affairs pretty cloBely, is free to
say that he never knew Mr. Springer
to do an act that was not, in his judg
ment, for the best good of the taxpayers.
