get while we were working in a little
country printing office in Nebraska dur
ing the operations of the democratic
partyt, drawing the munificent wages
of six dollars a week to be taken out
in trade at the stores, the day the
Kelly industrial army camped near the
town composed of over a thousand men
on their way from California to Wash
ington. We say that we shall never
forget those days and when we compare
them with the conditions that have ex
isted since under the high tariff, high
grub, high wages and everything else
high, we say give us high tariff and its
corresponding high things rather than
a democratic tariff with everything low
including the grub box, the clothes
closet, and the condition of the home
In short give us the Aldrich Bill with
everything high and money to buy it,
rather than another democratic Wilson
Bill with everything low and nothing to

TO THE PUBLIC.
We are pleased to announce that we
have secured the services of Mr. A. E.
Quinn of Duluth, Minn., who will have
charge of the local business of the
paper and will also act as city editor.
Mr. Quinn is i newspaper man of
thirty-three years standing and under
stands all departments of the business.
It is our intentiDn to make the paper
the very best one in southeastern Ne
braska, and we believe that Mr. Quinn
will be an important factor in accom
plishing that result.
As stated before, Mr. R. 0. Watters

THE CITY TICKET.
Only a short time and the voters of
the Ciy, of Pttsrnouthand.yicinlty
will be called upon to select the officers
who will look after the city and pre
cinct outside of the regularly elected
officer at the spring election.
For City Assessor the republicans
resent the name of J. C. Lindeman,
who needs no introduction to the voters
of this part of the county. Mr. Linde
man is well qualified for the position
and will make a first class assessor.
For District Assessor Dr. A. P.
Barnes bas been selected. Dr. Barnes
is an old resident here and has been in
a position where he knows property
values well and being a business man is
in a position to do good work as district
James Higley and J. R. Denson are
the candidates for constables. Both
men are well qualified, well known and
no man can have any valid excuse for
nonvoting for them.
For Justice of the Peace, J. C. York
and A. N. Sullivan afe the candidates
and it is not necessary to speak of their
qualifications. They will fill the offices
in a manner that will bring credit to
the office and themselves and justice to
iTiOse who patronize the justice courts.
Republican voters who desire to vote
the straight ticket this year by placing
their "X" in the party circle near the
top of the ballot are warned that the
democratic circle comes first at the top
this year instead of the republican
circle, as has been the case for several
years past, and that the republican
party circle apppears second from the
top of the ballot. The law so provides
owing to the fact that the democrats
cast the largest vote last year for the
head of the ticket (Shallenberger.) All
republicans hope to replace the republi
can circle at the head of the ballot by
winning this year and replacing the
party circle at the head of the ticket
for the important election of next year
when a complete list of state officers, a
I'nited States senator and a legislature
to be chosen.
