THE OlbTHICT JUDGE SHIP
It in a supriwe to nearly all that
'the democratic convention should
nominate Travin for the jude-ehip,
in view of the fact that the party
has within its ranks men poeaeHS
in better qualilii utioiii, and iik-ii
capable of poling u much lurcr
vote. He is not a man that would
grace the position with becoming
dignity, and the position could not
receive the reepect, from the lar at
din. Mr. Travis is
everywhere it-warded as a cronic
office e-ker; a member of no par
ticular political party, unless there
is an opportunity to feed at the
nubiic iiuiih: not a tr.zn who de
sires io attain poititionM through
the avenue of true ruerit, but rather
by wire pulling and other renorts
to thwart the true will of the peo
ple. In view of thin it would not
only be an injustice to the citizens
of the district, but it would be a dis
grace to Cans county to have this
ignoramus elected In the ponitioii.
THE llKKALK believes that our
people have too much respect for
the citixens of Otoe county and
think too much of their own credit
to vote for such a man even though
he has been forced upon the party
as the most available man.
We are confident that the better
element of voters of all partiea will
vote for Judge Chapman, a imin
who posseHMes every cssetitial ele
ment fur a 'popular judge as indi
cated by his n-iord in the past.
We cannot afford to dispense with
the service of a man who has hern

woman to nurse and soon showed no

wbil winding clock. Th deutlr.t
who endeavors to protect himself against
possible personal injury whil using hi

It is to be noted, however, that more ac
