T. li.. Carroll for ltopresentathe. i
Editor Tribune: '
Permit me to call the attention of
the voters oj North Platte and vicinity
to the candidacy of my father, T. L.
Carroll, of Gothenburg, for roproscn
talvo for the district covering Lincoln,
Koith and Dawson counties.
Mr. Cnrll is a business man. He
has been engaged in the lumbor, grain
and coal bUBlness for the past thirty
years at Uothonburg and is fitted ln
every way to properly reprosent this
district In the legislature. Wo have ,
In this district the fanner, the labor
ing man and the business man. No
candidate is worthy of your support
who is not fitted to represent all of
thsoe classes and no candidate should
get your vote who attempts to" array
class against class. He Is a patriotic
American citizen, born in the United
States, and his loyalty Is above
His onnonent Is a Mr. HIkkIiis. a
man who, I have been reliably Infer-1
med, has been a charter mombor of
overy new political faction that has
sprung up In Nebraska and whose !
rights to bo enlisted under the banner
of the democratic party are subject
to serious question. I am told that his
campaign Is being conducted from the
office of his son-in-law, J. H. Ed
mlsten, who Is also handling the sen
atorial campaign of his son-in-law,
M?. Lcavitt. A sort of a family af
fair, by marriage, as it were.
The circulars sent out by Hlggins'
faction seem to consist of knockB aimed
at the Council of Defense, the Homo
Guards and business in general. It
"ould, la my estimation, be nothing
"short of n crlmo, to elect a man who
would subscribe to such statements.
Mr. Carroll Is accused of owning
this mill in a way that would Indicate
that that was some sort of a crime.
If It Is a crlmo to be a miller he is
not guilty. He has no Interest of any
sort in our mill. I' 'appeal to my
'friends, both democratic and repub
lican, for your votes for Mr. Carroll

Bloodhounds were first known as
southhounds, owing to their ability to
track tho deer, wild boar or tho wolf.
When the wounded game broke away

were used in tracking the quarry by
