Hon. Addison S. Tibbets.
True to the old Alliance demand for
a non-partizan judiciary the populist
party of Lancaster cou:,ty nominated
Hon. Addison S. Tibbets for judge
of the Third judicial district. Like
many of our strongest, most intellectual
and best men Judge Tibbets vas a
farmer boy, born in Alegheny county,
New York, having defended of oldCon
neticut Yankee ancestry. Hegraduated
from Cornell University hi the class of
'77 with honors, lie taught school in
New York and spent his vacations and
leisure hours in reading law under the
guidance of those eminent attorneys,
Draper and Thornell of Sidney, Iowa,
lie was admitted to the bar in 1880 and
began practice in Lincoln in November
of the same year.
For eleven years Mr. Tibbets practiced
law in the state and federal courts. lie
prepared his cases with so much care
and skill that he won the confidence of
both his clients and the judges Ijefore
whom he practiced.
When Lancaster county was made a
judicial district Mr. Tibbets was ap
pointed judge at the rexuest of the bar
association. Most of the litigation which
arose out of the failure of the Capital
National bank was handled in his court,
and his decisions have given unusual
satisfaction to all the parties concerned,
Judge Tibbets will give dignity to the
bench. His bearing is such and his de
cisions so fair and just that even unsuc
cessful litigants never have any hard
feelings to the judge, who always con
vinces them that he is trying to do only
' what he honestly beleivestobe just and
equitable, lie not only has the respect
of the bar but of everj litigant that has
been in his court.
He will undoubtedly be re-elected by a
To Elect a New Chairman.
The state central committee will hold
a very important meeting in this city
today. Judge Stark found it would be
irapossinie ior mm 10 serve as cnairman
and sent in his resignation. There
seems to be a general desire that ex
Congressman McKeigan shall take the
place, as neither Mr. Wolfe nor Mr.
Ulake can give the time required to
make a vigorous state campaign. Any
of the above gentlemen would be satis
factory to thi w hole party, and w hat
ever the committee does in the matter
will be satisfactory.
Mr. Elias Baker.
Mr. Raker is known to almost every
man, woman and child in Lancaster
county as an ellieient business man, a
model husband and father, a kind,
charitable and honest citizen, who has
taken an active part in every enterprise
for the benelit of the county or city, or
helping the working class to better
w iges and a higher scale of living.
In the tall of lS'.d he was nominated
by the populist party for clerk of the
district court and easily overcame the
standard four thousand majority of the
republican party. This jear tho popu
list, democratic and prohibition conven
tions all uominated him, and one the
jepubhean dailies has been supporting
him by publishing his portrait and giv
ing very Muttering noticenof theetlii ieiit
and honest administration of his oitii-v.

Samuel Maxwell, Fremont, Neb.,- Dear

party in delegate convention assembled
in the city of Lincoln on the 2Sth tilt.,

a pleasure to us and a Mattering testi
monial to your character and fitness
for the high position to state that your
nomination was not only unanimous
but was by acclamation. Ry your long
services upon the supreme bench and
by your distinguished character us a
jurist, as well as by your unimpeachable
private character as a citizen of our
r.tate for so many years, you have en
deared yourself not only to our own
party but to a large majority as we be
lieve of the whole people of the state

especially to the common people, was
our on!) assurance that you would again
listen to their voice and obey their call.
Relying upon this assurance, we shall

mittee. Gentlemen: Your communica
tion notifying meof my nomination for
judge of the supreme court as a non
partisan, by the convention of the peo
ple's independent party held at Lincoln
on the 28th of August, 1805, was received
on the 12th.inst., and has been duly con
While I did not seek nor expect the
nomination, yet I am urged by many
members of all parties to accept it in the
spirit in which it was tendered. A non
partisan nomination as I understand it
means that national questions are not
involved in a mere state campaign, but
only questions relating to the good gov
ernment and affairs of the state, and
the system best calculated to promote
the prosperity and happiness of its peo
pie. As applied to a judge it means ore
who will faithfully, fearlessly and im
partially administer the law to all alike
without feeling, bias or prejudice and
without regard to their political opin
ions, nr his own.
The supreme court is clothed with the
sole power to try charges of impeach
ment in cases where an otlicer has lieen
impeached by the senate, and house of
representatives. This is an unusual
power conferred on the court, but was
designed to secure a fair trial free from
partisan liilliienceor bias. These duties,
however, require the court to construe
the law and determine for what of
teiiM' an officer may be found kuiUv.

Prof. George II. Walters.
Geo. 11. Walters, the independent
candidate for county clerk was born in
Edgar county, III., Dec. 23, lstw, and. is
therefore 211 years old.
While Mr. Walters was yet only four
years of age his parents with their
family moved to Sullivan county, Mo.
Mr, Walters received the rudiments of
of an education in the country schools,
and then attended the Kirksville state
Normal and Smith's Business College,
both located at Kirkville, Mo., where
his education was completed. He
adopted the profession of teaching as
his calling in life, and it is but just to
say he has made a success of it. I le
has spent twelve years in the school
room, seven in the public schools and
five teaching in business college work.
He at the present time holds the posi
tion of principal of the business depart
ment of Cotner University and was but
lately elected secretary to the Faculty
of the University. He is also clerk of
the village board at Bethany Heights.
There is no one in the county better
qualified to Bene the people in the
capacity of county clerk than Mr. Wal
ters. And if the voters of Lancaster
county, at the polls next November
ch'.'ose him by their voles for that posi
tion, they may rest assured that they
will have an officer who will do nothing
of which they will be ashamed.
The Lansing Attractions.
Mr. Church the manager of the Lan
sing has secured a lino list of attracions
for the next few days. On September
27th the Cleveland Minstrels will give
their Bplendid show.
On the 28th, the splendid all'air called
On October 2nd, The Bowery.
All these are performed by first class
companies) and deserve to be patron
ized. It it believed that the Lansing
will Ie crowded for the next few days.
No better shows will be here this sea
Mr. Fred A. Miller.
Mr. Fred A. Miller, the present
sheriff of Lancaster county, was first
picked out and nominated by the popu
list party two )ears ago and afterward
endorsed by the democrats. He was
elected in a county where the republi
cans have long had a majority of three
or four thousand, and has so conducted
his office that he has the endorsement of
almost the whole citizenship of Lancas
Nearly the whole of Mr. Miller's life
has been spent in Nebraska. Coming
here as he did at four years of age, he
knows the state and its people and their
wants as few can know them. In every
way that he could, he has lent a hand
to the amelioration of the hard condi
tion of life with which most of our peo
ple are surrounded, and to do so has be
come a member of many f raternal or
ganization. He has been true to the demand of
the populist platform in the administra
tion of his ollice and has . executed its
duties fully, faithfully and economical
ly. So hontst and ellieient has he been
as an officer that he has disarmed criti
cism, and strong republican papers like
the Call have given him the most
The citizens of this county have been
so often robbed by recreant officials, it
would be strange indeed, when they
have in Mr. Miller such an ellieient and
honest one, that any serious opposition
should be made to his re-election.

Points In Politics.
As the time for the county conven
tion draws nearer there is an increasing
amount of talk of the desirability of
nominating, particularly for two of the
offices to be filled t his fall, the strongest
men that can be found, Most of the re
publican candidates will have a walk
away; but two of them will have to meet
strong opposition. The prospect for
demo-pop candidates is not at this time
particularly encouraging, but watever
may be done in the way of fusion, Mr.
the present clerk of the district court,
are sure to prove strong candidates. As
The Courier has before said these gen
tlemen have rendered good service to the
county, and are both as strong, appar
ently, as when they were elected. They
have been in a position to make many
friends and few enemies, and they have
been as adroit in this as they have been
careful and painstaking in the perform
ance of their duties. Republicans should
not delude themselves with the idea that
anybody cau be elected this fall. Such is
not the case. If care is not taken in the
selection of candidates for these two
offices it is not at all unlikely that Mr.
Miller and Mr. Baker will be left undis
turbed by the election. '1 heseollicers so
far as patronage and remuneration are
concerned, are the most important of all
county offices, with theexceptiou of that
of treasurer; and the party to insure the
election of rejuiblicans to these places,
ought not to jepardise its prospects by
the nomination of weak candidates.
Courier, (Rep ) June IHfta.
Hon. Georgo W. Berge.
If thereis amaii on the populist ticket
of whom the average American citizen
should be proud that man is George W.
Rerge. Like Lincoln, Grant and Gar
field, he was a farmer's boy and by his
own efforts has obtained his education
ana risen to a station in life that com
mands the respect of all who know him.
Rorn in the state of Illinois of Ger
man parentage, he inherited the studi
ous, scientific temperment of that race
of plodding scientists, who by patient
study have done so much for the world.
Mr. Uerce is eminently a student and
thinker, and when his opponent refused
to meet hirn m joint diricussion.the said
republican candidate did a very wise
thing to show the white Hag and then
On the stump Mr. Rerge is not only
eloquent, but a speaker of great force
and power. He was nominated by
three conventions for county judge- the
populist, the democratic and prohibi
tionists, not only because the conven
tions as a body, but every delegate in
itheiu believed that he would make by
fir the Inst county judge this county
It often happens in this state that con
ventioiis nick unthe very tail end of the
bar and nominate him for county judge
