With the Journal to look after the 1
welfare of the people there is surely I
nothing to fear. The public can now j
sleep in peace knowing that even if
old Gabrial should blow his horn Unit
their slumbers will not ba disturbed,
for the Journal will absorb all the noise
and the blasts of the horn will slip by
The Journal may pose as the guar
dian angel of the people; it may call
the turn on "the other fellow" if it
wishes; it may flounder around in the
mire and finally, perch on the toadstool
in the democratic barnyard, but the
facts still remains, proven by its own
publication of Saturday, October 9,
that it deliberately mislead its readers
into the belief that the affairs of SheritT
Quinton were in such shape that the
county board had ordered an investiga
tion and had hired an expert to go over
his books. That fact stands out boldly
and the Journal may squirm around all
it pleases, but it can't go back on the
record whi'-h discloses the fact that
the board did not pass any resolution
and DID not hire an expert.
The Journal did however publish
some resolutions introduced by some
irresponsible party who had not con
fidence enough in them to sign them,
neither did the democratic chairman
who was present have confidence
enough in them to sign them, calling
for an investigation of the books of
Sheriff Quinton and no action was
taken on the resolution. All the board
did was to ask the sheriff to make his
reports. But this Guardian Angel of
the people began to flutter its wings
and flew to the rescue, not of the peo
ple of Cass county, but to the demo
cratic party which would have no show
of winning the election this fall unless
some new issue could be trumped up.
No one attempts to deny the fact
that Sheriff Quinton had no( made his
quarterly reports. In that regard the
sheriff has technically broken the law.
But because he has not made his re
ports would it not have been better if
the Guardian Angel had been fair
about it and waited until the meeting
of the board on October 19th and found
out first whether the sheriff failed to
follow out the request of the board. It
would have been better to have found
out whether there was something to
flutter about-instead of rushing. into
print and assailing a man's honesty on
a mere suspicion. If the Guardian
Angel of the people of Cass county
wanted to be a sort of decent angel,
why did it seek to convey the impres
sion that Sheriff Quinton was a de
faulted when it had no evidence, and
nothing more than a suspicion and a
mighty weak one at that.
Suppose for instance that Sheriff
Quinton is all that the Journal seeks to
make him out. Suppose that he has
in his custody funds that belong to the
county. What evidence has the Jour
nal that he is dishonestly withholding
those funds. When Sheriff Quinton has
made his report and that report shows
that there are funds of the county
which are wrongfully withheld by him,
or he refuses to turn over those funds,
if there are any, than it is time to get
suspicious and not before.
Suppose when Sheriff Quinton makes
his report to the board on the 19th of
this month it is found that his report
is all right and that the affairs of the
sheriff's office are in good shape, how
is the Journal cointr to sauare itself
with the people whom it has deceived
by its publication of last Saturday af
ternoon. If the Journal and the democratic
chairman really believed that there
was anything wrong with Sheriff Quin
ton's affairs, why could they not have
waited till his report was made and
then investigated. They could have
rested assured that if that report
looked at all suspicious that the county
board as the servants of the people
would have investigated in regular ses
sion more thoroughly than the demo
cratic chairman and the Guardian
Angel could have done at lotfg 'clis
tance. ' ,'.
The whole thing in too much in the
nature of snap judgement, and .hears
on the face of it that peculiar mode of
proccedure always used by the dis
gruntled politician, both democratic
f' and republican, who seeing the hope
lessness of his cause attempts to do all
the damage he can before the oppor
tunity passes by.
Sheriff Quinton may be guilty of all
the Journal would like to have the peo
ple believe. We do not for a moment ;
think it. But innocent or guilty, we j
would rather be in the sheriff's shoes !
guilty, than in those of the Journal if ;
he is innocent. I

During a meeting of the board of ed
ucation it was decided to not allow the
teachers in the city schools their time
to attend the State Teachers' associa

enced a majority of the teachers to vote

meeting. This explanation is made for
the reason that some might infer by a
former article that the teachers them
selves were responsible for the action.

For tne purpose of increasing the circulation of the News
Herald and also of reaching every home in Cbhs county,
preparatory to making a better paper, we make the following
offer to new subscribers.
The News-Herald from now till after Election too
The News-Herald from now till January 1, 1910 25o
Any New Subscriber paying for one year in advance at the
regular subscription price of $1.50 can have the News-Herald
sent free till January, 1910.
This barely pays for the paper it is printed on and no re
publican in Cass county can afford to be without his party paper
at this price. In fact a democrat will gain a whole lot of useful
knowledge he would not otherwise obtain by taking advantage
of this offer.
We have a few of those nice Clocks left whic"h we will give
to any new subscriber who pays one year's subscription in ad
vance and CO cents extra, as long as they last.
In addition to every year's subscription. In advance we will
give one of those "Don't Break Your Back" Dust Tans, a few
of which we huve left.
Then we have a lot of Silver Spoons which are wurranted
to be just as good as silver anyway, and will give half a dozen
of these as long as they last to any subscriber who pays a year
in advance with 15 cents extra.
Then there are a few dozen scissors left which we want to
get out of the way and will give a pair of these to any subscri
ber who pays one year in advance and 10 cents extra..
This offer does not any where near cover the cost of this
stuff at the wholesale price, but they are here in the office and
we want to get them out of the way, and we propose to give
new subscribers the benefit.
