It is but a few short years since the
then campaign manager of Senator
Hitchcock brutally told a delegation of
women who called to request the
senator’s support of equal suffrage,
that he considered the enfranchising
of the negro a mistake and that he al30
was opposed to woman suffrage.
Everry citizen of Holt county, prac
tically, and at least every head of a
family, this week will receive a copv
of the local democratic organ, which
is getting out a “special” edition. Said
citizen need not be afraid to take the
|)aper out of the mail box. By so do
ing he does not pledge himself as a
subscriber to the sheet. The copy he
receives is paid for and by accepting
it he neither incure or imples a finan
cial obligation on his part. The paper
is already paid for. Several other is
sues may be sent out before election.
They also will be paid for. The postal
regulations regarding the distribution
of sanfple copies of newspapers is very
strict as to the number that may be
issued. Solicitors of advertising for
the special edition have asserted to
merchants in asking for advertising
that a copy of the edition would go to
each taxpayer in the county. This of
course means that the advertisers,
either political or business, are going
to pay the special postal rate demand
ed for a “special” edition. Somebody
is paying for it. There will be thous
ands of such editions throughout the
country betwteen now and election.
There is no reason why every voter in
the country cannot read a democratic
newspaper or two or three of them,
without 'paying for the privilege. He
or she will not have to take the paper
after election. Backed by Wall
street, the banking interests of the
country, the liquor interests and the
big corporations seeking to prevent
the investigation of war profiteering
scandals, with their millions and bill
ions, the democratic party may con
duct a propaganda campaign in an at
tempt to hoodwink the voter, but it is
not going to get very far with the
thinking individual. As long as there
is plenty of money around we ho^ie the
Holt county workers get their share.
Every democratic precinct is entitled
to his share just as much as in the
man in the richly furnished office in
the large center of population.
Our democratic friends are urging
the cancellation of the debt of the al
lies to this government. The House
of Morgan also is advocating the same
thing. It should be borne in mind that
the proposed cancellation does not in
clude the cancellation of the indemni
ties exacted by the allies from the Ger
mans. Neither does it contemplate the
cancellation of the bonded debt owed
by the allies to the big bankers of this
country. The plan does not propose
to cancel the billions of dollars of
liberty bonds which this government
required its citizens to buy and which
now are almost entirely held by «the
big banks which purchased them from
the original purchasers at enormous
discount during the period of deflation
brought on by the late democratic al
ministration. The taxpayers of this
country will continue to be taxed to
pay the interest on these bonds and
on the bonds which eventually will be
issued to refund them when they fall
due. The great, great grand children
of the youngest infant now living in
these United States will be dead and
long forgotten before the people of
the country cease paying interest on
these bonds and the succeeding bonds
which will be issued to retire them.
The interest on these tax-exempt se
curities will continue to be paid to the
big money trust, for in a few years no
ordinary individual will be the posses
sor of a liberty bond. The ordinary
individual never will have an oppor
tunity to purchase the refunding bonds
or certificates of indebtedness. These
will be taken in blocks by the big
money interests. If the allies are re
quired to pay their honest but unse
cured debt to this country their pay
ments will assist in the retirement of
this government’s bonds issued during
the war to raise the money to loan the
allies. Incidentally the money power
of New York absorbed in commissions
for acting as purchasing agents of the
foreign governments a great share of
the money loaned the allies by this
government. The rest of it went to
manufactures owned by them. sThe
little fellow received but very little of
it, but under this brotherhood of man
scheme proposed by Morgan and our
democratic friends the little fellow of
this country will pay it all.
It is with pride and pleasure that
The Frontier presents to its many
readers the list of republican candi
dates for national, state and county
office, to be voted upon at the coming
general election in November. It is
a ticket to be proud of, composed as
it is of men whose private and 'public
lives are above reproach, men success
ful in their various walks,of life, men
whose neighbors vouch for them. In
a later issue The Frontier will make
personal mention of the state and na
tional candidates, but it first wants to
cull attention, to the candidates on the
county ticket.
Brantley E. Sturdevant of Atkinson,
the candidate for state senator, has
served two terms in the house of rep
resentatives, where he took a promi
nent and progressive part in the de
liberations of that body. Careful of
the taxpayers money he was ever to
bo found representing his constitu
ents. One of the longtime residents of
Holt county, he needs no introduction
to the voters. His election to the
senate will be a just recognition of his
services to the community.
Donald Gallagher, the candidate for
state representative, is a native of
T1 i • •
ahmu n i younj^ attorney
at (present serving as deputy county
attorney and a young man who did no*
hesitate to interrupt a college career
when his country called, serving witl
distinction in the aviation branch of
the service during the great world war.
liis election will be a deserved recog
nition of the young man in politics
and his host of acquaintances in the
county can vouch for his ability and
Ed. F. Porter, the county’s present
efficient and accommodating county
clerk. An old time resident of the
south part of the county, Mr. Porter
is very widely known and wherever he
is known he is liked. He is at pres
ent serving his first term as county
clerk and his efficient administration
of the duties of that important posi
tion is in itself the best recommenda
tion of why he should be returned
to it.
It is doubtful if there is a man more
generally known to the men and wo
men of Holt county than W. E. Conk
lin, the republican candidate for
county treasurer He has undergone
all of the vicissitudes of a pioneer of
the early days and if he has an enemy
among either the old or new citizens
of the county he is yet to be discover
ed. Mr. Conklin is the present oblig
ing and efficient ddputy county treas
urer and the very fact that he is hold
ing that position under a democratic
chief in itself demonstrates the confi
dence and esteem in which he is held
by those who know him.
Robert N. Brittell, the candidate for
sheriff, is pretty busy farming, on his
ranch south of O’Neill, just at present,
and it may be that he will not have the
opportunity to come in personal con
tact with each and every voter before
election day. However, as the deputy
sheriff under former sheriff, Henry
Grady, Mr. Brittell demonstrated his
fearlessness, his respect for law en
forcement and his devotion to duty.
He also is an old resident of the county
and his friends are numbered only by
his acquaintances. No one who knows
him knows any thing mean of him.
Honest, fearless and faithful he will
fill the position to which he aspires
with credit not only to himself but to
the pedple.
Julius D. Cronin, the candidate for
county attorney, admitted to the bar
in 1916, is a young attorney already
accomplished and successful in the
practice of his profession and is one of
the two ex-service men on the ticket.
He volunteered immediately after the
entrance of the country into the world
war and the .majority of his service
which extended until long after the
armistice was spent over seas. Born
and raised in Holt county he is known
to a large number of its citizens,
as an upright, celan and courageous
young man with the fearless courage
of his convictions. He stands for law
M. F. Norton, veteran, surveyor of
Holt county, his filled that important
position for many terms, being re
elected time after time and each time
with a larger majority than before.
Mr. Norton is known to practically
every man, woman and child in the
county and consequently needs no in
troduction to them. He is the only
regularly nominated candidate for
county surveyor.
For members of the county board
of supervisors the party ^presents the
name of C. F. Englehaupt in the First
district, Andrew Schmidt in the Third
district, C. E. Farrier in the Fifth
district, C. B. Nellis in the Sixth dis
trict and C. E. Havens in the Seventh
district. Each of these men is a resident
of the district which he aspires to rep
resent. He is well and favorabiy
known to all of his neighbors. That
these neighbors have seen lit to nomi
nate them for these important posi
tions is in itself sufficient testimony
of their worthiness.
Speaking at the county fair Sep
tember 28th, Governor McKelvie said:
“The ’rainmaker’ candidate for gov
ernor on the democratic ticket says
that he will shower tax reductions
upon the people of the state, and im
mediately points to the repeal of the
Code as the means by which he shall
accomplish this rsult.
“It has already been pointed out that
the elimination of the salaries of the
Code Secretaries would result in a
possible state tax reduction of thirty
three thousandths of one per cent.
This indeed would be ‘some shower’
but at that, it is as much as might be
expected of a ‘rainmaker.’ To go
further: If the state house were in be
closed entirely and the salaries of all
the state employees eliminated, in
cluding the Constitutional officers, the
Code departments and the Supreme
Court, it would result in a possible tax
reduction of seven-tenths of one per
cent. The utter ridiculousness of a
thing of this sort is apparent, and I
only cite it as a means of showing that
the possible reduction in the state’s
salary roll is, after all, a negligible
item. The worth-while reductions
must come elsewhere.
“The reason for increased taxes is
not that the payroll of state em
ployes is a burdensome item, but it is
that during the past four years, the
state has been engaged in an exten
sive program of improvement and
progress, the very large ‘proporf.on of
which is accounted for in permanent
improvements and capital invest
ments: $2,000,000.00 for soldiers’ re
lief, over $3,000,000.00 thus far raised
for the new state capitol, more than
$5,000,000.00 increase for building
roads, over $2,000,000.00 increase for
the State University, over $2,000,
000.00 increase for penal and charit
able institutions, over three-quarters
of n million dollars increase for Nor
mal Schools, over $300,000.00 for the
eradication of bovine tuberculosis, over
a quarter of a million dollars increase
for Vocational Education, $200,000.00
increase for paving around State In
stitutions, and over $140,000.00 for
State aid to schools. These items and
other minor items for new qnd in
creased activities of the State, after
making allowances for the discontinu
ance of activities that were carried on
during the bienniums of 1915-18, in
clusive, levies a total increase of
nearly sixteen and one-half million
dollars. Thus the increase in state
taxes for the last four year period is
accounted for.
“Of course, anyone can understand
that there can be a further reduction
n taxes, because the major portion
c these new and increased activities
time either been completed or need
not be continued on the same extensive
asis, the work already havipg been
done, and it is from this source that
decreased taxes will come, rpther than
from the elimination of a’few em
ployes from the state •payroll. The
republican party has arleady shown
its good faith in this respect by hav
ing reduced state taxes one-third for
the present year.
“It is only fair now that the ‘rain
maker’ candidate should point out
just exactly where he proposes to ef
fect any considerable decrease in
taxes, aside from the decrease that
would naturally result as above out
lined, and he should tell the people
about whether he objects to the $2,
000,000.00 that was appropriated for
soldiers’ relief, or whether he is op
posed to the building of the new
capitol, or whether he is opposed to
the five thousand miles of good state
roads that have been built, or whether
he would deprive the young men and
young women of the state of the
educational advantages thalt are af
forded in the University and Normal
Schools, or whether he would disre
gard the needs of the state's depend
ents who are now being taken care of
in the penal and charitable institutions,
the increased enrollment of which
amounts to about 35 ’per cent during
the last six years.
“When one analyzes the tax question
in the light of the actual facts, he is
the more impressed that the activities
of the ‘rainmaker’ now arc even as
they were in the drouth years of '93
and ’94. Waiving aside the truth as
though it were of no importance in
arriving ati correct conclusions, the
‘rainmaker’ disappears into the hay
mow, waves his magic wand and thus
makes good his promise that it will
rain—somewhere—but the wind still
blows, the drouth prevails, and God
reigns supreme in His Heaven.”

Homer Sheridan, the middleweight
wonder of Sioux City, still retains his
title as undefeated champion of the i
middle west. Homer disposed of
Ralph Parcaut of Spencer, Iowa, the
contender for the title, in the fourth
round of what was to have been a ten
round bout, before a large and en
thusiastic crowd of fight fans at the
K. C. hall last Thursday night. The
affair was under the auspices of the
Knights of Columbus athletic club and
was one of the finest exhibitions of
speed and fistic science witnessed in
O’Neill for many years. It was the
first time in Sheridan’s several ap
pearances here that he really extend
ed himself, on none of the previous oc
casions had it been necessary for him
to do so. At that, the Sioux City man
had a lot of stuff he didn’t have to
show. A distinguished group of visi
tors witnessed the go from ringside
seats, among them Governor McKei
vie of Nebraska, Mayor James Dahl
man and City Commissioner John Hop
kins of Omaha, Crawford Kennedy of
Lincoln, the next secretary of state,
and Pat Stanton of Tilden. The visi
tors all pronounced the exhibition one
of the best they had ever witnessed
and declared Sheridan to be in a class
entirely by himself as a boxer and a
pugalist. Parcaut, the Spencer man,
an athlete of wonderful build and con
siderable speed, is no second rater.
It is very doubtful if there is another
man of his weight in the west, except
Sheridan, who can take his measure.
Both men weighed in at 161 pounds a
few hours before the fight. In the
first two rounds Parcaut easily held
his own with the man from Sioux
City, landing as many and as terrific
blows as did his antagonist, but he
failed to place them in vital spots.
Sheridan worked mostly on the Spen
cer man’s midsection, badly disar
ranging the latter’s digestive appar
atus and in the third round the effects
of the terrific and well directed bom
bardment began to show. The end
came shortly after the opening of the
fourth round, the one in which Sheri
dan usually puts them away. Parcaut
was floored soon after the opening bell
but regained his feet before the con
clusion of the count. Then Sheridan
measured him, as Parcaut’s second
tossed a sponge into the ring. The
latter proceedure is entirely against
the Nebraska boxing regulations, but
it made no difference to Parcaut, as
he was through, sponge or no sponge.
Both victor and vanquished were
liberally applauded both during and
after the go.
The opening number on the pro
gram, a six round go between George
Gee of Plainview, and Russell Bow
den, of O’Neill, furnished much amuse
ment for the big crowd. Both men
were excellent boxers, but very evi
dently were strangers to the profes
sional ring and in need of training.
However their affair went the full six
rounds and at the conclusion Gee was
awarded the decision, which met the
awarded the decisoin, which met with
the approval of the crowd and also ap
parently Mr. Bowden.
O’Neill and Spencer grid teams
locked horns for the first game of the
season at Spencer, September 29th,
and O’Neill won to the tune of 20 to 0.
This was a hotly contested game in
which both teams played goof! foot
The game was called at 3 o’clock.
Both teams went into the field full of
pep and fight and both determined to
win the game. O’Neill had the first
kick off and at the blow of the whistle
both teams charged, each man getting
a man. Spencer received the ball and
on the third down on trying a pass
O’Neill intercepted the ball and car
ried it to Spencer’s 10 yard line. This
was the largest gain in the first half.
There was not much ground covered
by either side the rest of that half;
the score being 0 to 0.
On the kick off in the last half
O’Neill received the ball and carried
it through for a touch down which was
repeated again that quarter. At the
end of the third quarter the score
stood 13 to 0. In the last quarter
O’Neill made their last touch down in
the first five minutes of play and the
rest of the game was hard scrimmage,
Spencer punting every time they got
the ball.
O’Neill made their touchdowns on
passes and on the try for goal. Beha
drop kicked two of them. The touch
downs were made by Capt. Geo. Stan
nard. In the last three minutes of
play Ilirsch was put in for Stannard,
Stannard for McPhalin, and Hall for
Mellor. After this change, when
O’Neill punted, a red streak could be
seen going down under the ball and
when it stopped it generally stopped
a man which turned out to be Cyril
