1 here by announce myself as a candi
date for the republican nomination for
Register of Deeds of Cass county, sub
ject to the pleasure of the voters at
the coming (primaries. In asking for
this nomination I desire to call atten
tion to the fact that my services in the
office of county surveyor, while being
largely of a "thank" you" nature, the
remuneration being insullrient fr the
Hupport of a family, have eminently
fitted me for the duties of the office to
which I aspire, and in case 1 Bhould re
ceive the nomination I shall use my
best endeavors to be elected, and will
give to the office my best attention.

LET everybody get behind the First
Annual Business Men's Carnival, and
push hard to make it a great success.
If all take hold of it and push it with
the right spirit it can be made a great
feature, and will be only second to the
Akscrben. It should be a festival that
the people of Cass county may feel
proud of. They will all be here to see
what the business men of the city can
really do when they try. Let us show
the people of southeastern Nebraska
and southwestern Iowa that I'latts
mouth can really do things when it
makes an effort. President Falter of
the Commercial Club has selected some
progressive hustling fellows for the
committee to plan the Carnival. Give
them your hearty co-operation. All
push for the Business Men's Carnival.
Push now, and push all of the time.

In view of the economic problem
which constantly attends the changing
ratio of supply and demand, a tariff law
based on protective schedules must
stand firmly on a foundation of expert
information. AtaritT commission which
could ascertain facts upon which con
gress could base rates, would not only
eliminate partisan political feature?,
but would place the matter in a posi

certainly many things which recom

THE announcement made by George
L Tobey of his candidacy for congress
is generally accepted as a modern pt
litical joke. We have read the an
nouncement to see what fitness he
could offer which would warrant the
republicans of the first district in sup
porting him for the nomination for cor.
Kress. There seems to be one primary
and about three secondary reason?
The primary reason seems to be that
he is itching for the job. The second
ary reasons seems to be that he served
about eight years as private secretary
or clerk under Congressman Burkett
and then for a short time under Sena'
tor Burkett. Then he acted as secre
tary or chairman of Burkett's congres
sional committee. Then he has been
secretary of one or two local societit
in the city of Lincoln. That looks like
exceeding fitness to represent one of
the greatest agricultural districts in
the National legislature.

He purchased the land from former
Senator S. L. Thomas and the amount
paid was $"j,MM). This is at the rate of
$125 per acre and is a very reasonable
price, though the land has no improve

senator has been disposing of consider

speech the Lincoln Journal says:
The speech by Senator Norris Brown
on the paper and pulp schedule, in
which he advocates free paper and free

senate. Senator Blown had not previ

effort as a debator, and nobody knew
whether he would appear to advantage.

done for Kansas:

been for several years the most proser
