Lejal Ballots,
As some question has been raised in
regard to bow ballots should be printed
in order to have them conform with the
statutes, a letter was written to Attor
ney General, asking his advice in
the matter. The following is what be
says in reply:
" u answer to yours relating to the
t'eket 1 will say that Section 113, relat
;ng to fraudulent votes or ballots pro
vide, a liallot with a designated beading
curtaining printed thereon, in place of
another, a name not found on the regu
lar liallot having such heading, etc.
"Thus you will see that to have a lial
lot counted for the people's ticket it
n Hist lie on the head "People's Ticket."
My judgment would be that to have the
heading thus'BucAN State Tic-let
Pj-xilk's Coi:nty Ticket,
and then set out the offices for state and
county as you have them on your copy.
Yours, &:, Wm. Lkeke."
The ballots on which the "People's
Ticket" is printed are printed in accord
ance with the above opinion, and the
voters should see that no one is allowed
to throw any of them out, but should be
certain that every vote is properly
counted and a straight return made.
Look Refors Yon Leap.
It is a well settled fact that the re
turns from Running Water precinct in
were not just as they should have
lieen. Do you want a man to have
charge of the affairs of the county who
had a hand in that election matter, not
simply as an outsider, but one of the j
judges, sworn to protect the purity of
the ballot box? It is out of the ques
tion for this to be denied. Jt is a matter
of record and that is the best possible
evidence. In order that there be no mis-
Iu pursuance to Ice publiihecl call, dele
gates to the republican senatorial conven
tion for the 14th district, aaaeinbled at the
court bouue hall, and the meeting was called
to order at 11 o'clock a. m. by the chairman
of the central committee. All red Bartow, of
Dawes county, and after, a few remarks
called upon the committee's secretary, who
read the call for the convention.
E. F. Companion, of Hay Springs, was
elected temporary chairman, and El. L.

On motion, the following committee on

When you go to the polls lie sure that
you vote the ticket that will give Rood
public ollicers to the county for the next
t wo years. No one denies that the af
fairs of the county have been mismun
iigcil, even the lusion convention wmcn
met on October 4, 1889, put in its reso
lutions the following clause: "We heart
ily concur that there should be improv
meiit in the administration of our county
affairs." By the adoption of such a
plank they acknowledge that the public
matters have not been conducted in the
past as they should have been, and then
the same clique go to work and put up
men of their own ilk, some of whom
have been ollicers during the time, ac
cording to their own resolution, that the
affairs of the county have been misman
aged. That is a very nice dodge, but it
will not deceive the voters or induce
tlif-ui to again entrust the public affairs
to their keeping. Thu men on the repub
lican people's ticket are men against
whom not a word can lie said nor a
charge of any kind be made against the
character, honor or ability of any one
of them. They are men who came here
to build up homes and they have been
identified with the interests of the peo
ple ever since they have been in Sioux
county, and if they receive the support
at the polls on next lnosday to
winch they are entitled every one of
them will be elected and the settlers of
Sioux county w ill have cause to rejoice
over the result.
Ho you want Sioux county to settle
up rapidly so that your farm will become
valuable? If so. vote the republican
people's ticket from top to hot torn. It
is a business proposition. It is the set
tlement of a country that gives a value
to real estate. It was only a few years
ago the land in the eastern part of the
state was as cheap as it is in Sioux
county. It was nothing but the settle
ment of the country and the cultivation
of the soil which has made the land
worth from $25 to $60 per acre. The
land there was not considered to be ol
the best quality, but the development
has lieen wonderful, and there is no
reason why Sioux county cannot experi
ence the same results if proper care is
taken of public matters so that the taxes
are kept as low as possible, and the
proper encouragement given to people to
come here to live. In order to get these
matters into proper shape vote the re
publican people's ticket all through next
Ho you want a man on the county
board who was a member of the election
board of Runnning Water precinct in
18HH. The returns which came in from
that nrecinct last year are well-known
to all the people of Sioux county and
they should make it known that they
have no use for such men in the conuuci
of the public business. If you want the
business in charge of men whom you
know for certain will transact the busi
ness in an honest and honorhble manner,
vole for John A. Green for county com
missioner from the 3d district.
Remember there are no chronic office
seekers on the republican people s ucnei,,
and no liien who in former years have
htcn making a living out of public office
or posing before the public as candidates
for honors and ollice. J ne caniuo.ues on
that ticket were placed there for the pur
ndse of breaking up a ring and putting
of affairs in the hands of
men who will administer their offices in
thu interests of the entire pwiple and not
for the benefit of a favored few.
With the amount of moistnre fall
ing this fall and the excellent prospects
for the election of the entire republican
.,,1.,'p ticdet there is no doubt that
within the next year Sioux county will
enjoy unprecedented prosperity and the
population ought to bo almost doubled

Now, farmers, if a man will be a party
to such a transaction, do you want to
have him in a position where he will
have an opportunity to run the affairs of
the county? Do you want to put it in
the power of men of that kind to say
how much tax you shall pay and what
shall be done with the money. It is
right and proper that when a man has

taken into account, when be asks for the

Straight republicanism was recog
nized at the recent senatorial convention
at Rusliville, called to nominate a can
didate to fill the vacancy caused by the
resignation Of Hon. C. II. Cornell. C.
E. Holmes, E. A. Weir and C. E. Verity
went dowu as delegates from the straight
republican mass convention and C. F.
Slingerland went down as a representa
tive of the fusion convention. The dele
gates sent by the lmiss convention were
seated by the unanamous vote of the
convention and that settled the matter
so far as the senatorial district was con
cerned and the selection of" Hon. Alfred
Bartow as the candidate completed the
work of the convention.
On the evening of the same day a con
vention was held at Chadron to place in
nomination a candidate to fill the vacan
cy caused by the resignation of Hon. L.
VV. Gilchrist and the same delegates
went there to represent tne republican
mass convention, and C. F. Slingerland
also went to Chadron, but at the last
moment his gall must have failed him
tor he did not appear at all to ask for a
seat in the convention. Both conven
tions passed resolutions condemning the
mixing of parties in primary work and the
true party spirit of the northwest coun
ties is thus displayed in a manner which
cannot be mistaken.

ports :
We, the republican representatives of the
14th senatorial district of Nebraska, in con
vention assembled, hereby resolve,
First, That we heartily endorse the plat
forms and resolutions of the republican
part vas set forth and declared by the. last
national republican and statu conventions,
and reiterate our adherence to the same.
second, That we also endorse the ad minis
tration of President Harrison as being wise,
conservative, patriotic, and in accord with
the principles of true republicanism.
Third, That we deprecate the action of so
called republicans who atliliate with other
political parties for the purpose, of subserv
