According to the dicieion of Judge
Powell of Omaha List week the office of
f.tate treasury was vacant during 1893
od 1808 and yet a maa is now Uuguish-

skulked off into hiding places and our

There is one noticeable fact in this
fall's campaign that the republicans in
the face of their defalcation and erabei
Kelmenta in the office for the last ten or
fifteen years are not putting any speak
ers into the Holds. They can't face their
record with a clear conscience. The par
ty leaden are all hraas but they were ob
liged to have a surplus if they would be
able to make a canvas. So all they can
do la to resort to sliicaoery and political
discep lion aod causing discord in the fus

George, the laboring man's friend will :
be elected mayor of Greater New York

H orn be defeated and Vao Wick will
probably bring up the rear; it will be a
tight race betweeu tho two machine
! candidates which wii! have the fourth
j place at the end of the race.
j As this will be the la-.t issue of the
i Jochnai. bafore election day, we desire
to warn the voters of Sioux county who
for the furthering of their own interests
should work and vote for the fusion can
didates next Tuesday to investigate all
Hloiies iu rvjrard to our candidates. Of
course candidate W. II. Davis has no
tified uh through the medium of the Press
that we have usurped rights and tread
on forbidden grounds when wa said to
the voters l.ut week to be on their guard
and pay no attention to stories starteJ
for the purpose of defeating our tick

for that is ike only remedy which the
single gold standard party possesses and
h is a faithful exponent and repre
neritalive of that party tnd all that the

During the years of 1S83 and 1805 the
Republican state adininistrfition expend
ed for printing the session laws, house and
stave journals and the school laws $30,
737,90, or an excess of over fH,0Q0 fr
each year more than was expended
for tht same amount of work done Wj
the reform administration in 1897. Do
the people of Sious county want more
of that kind of officials in the state em

good honest and clean set of officials at
the head of affairs in the state then sup

Bro. Davis of the Press, and who is
a candidate for the important office of
county clerk took exception to what he
chooses to call our leading editorul in the
JOURNAL of last week and he undertakes
to jump on is with both feet. But, as
the old proverb reads -a guilty conoiooce
needs no accuser" hence, he has mode the
application and found that the statement
made by the Journal was co rrect.
We said in the article mentioued, "that
we had not a word to say against the
personal or private characters of any of
our republican brothrs"and menttosay
candidates. The article was intended to
apply to unprincipled schemeing pol
iticians who have no rgard for truth
and veracity. "If the shoe fits put it
on. "What we said is the truth and
can't be gainsaid. If you, Brother Davis
are making a clean and honorable canvas
for the sufferae of the people of Sioux
county well and good if not you ought
to be the last person to make a kick a

The; Republican's Defence
Continued from last week.
Motiber and Outcait, who were accept
ed as bondsmen were at tha time known
to have nearly $400,000 of the money
the bonds were given to secure, and they
themselves say that liar wood McNish,
Cadet, Taylor and others were "squeez
ed lemons" and that in fact over a mill
ion and a half on that bond was worth
less. The value of Hartley's last bond,
which Governor Hoioomb approved (tho
ranies were printed two weeks ago in
these letters) was easily twice as much
as the first.
These same vilifiers of honest men
have also made an attack on Meserveand
his bond. It is time that the whole
truth about this matter should be told.
These same villains who are now saving
that Governor Holcomb is the real de
faulter, aud not Bartley planned a
scheme to keep Bartley, by the aid of
the supreme court in office though he
was defeated at the polls. The law re
quires that. th state treasurer shaU give
m timntof $000,000 and Dot less than dou
ble the amount that may come into his
hands, to be lixed by tha governor, and
that officers elected at the general elec
tion shall (Ho their bonds on or before
the first Tuesday Iri "January next suc
ceeding their election.
The books at the state honse show that
Bartley had in his possession 11.536,304.
10. This would require a bond of over
13,000,000, and they thought that M
serve could not put up that much- and
Bartley would hold over. To make up
this enormous sum in the treasurer's
hands, and as part of their plan to .keep
Bartley in. Bartley bad not paid the
December apportionment for common
schools whi. h amounted to 231. 853,30,
and he held 225,000. which should nave
been paid out for called warrants. This
trick cost Meserve five or six hundred
dollars in traveling expenses and notari
al fees in getting signers to a bond twice
as large as the law really requires him to
make. However, as soon as Meserve got
into office he paid out every dollar that
conld be paid and has continued jthat
practice every since, so that today he has
an approved bond more than twie as
large as the law requires him to ffive.
A $900,000, bond is aply sufficient for all
the money he ever has on hand. If ev
ery name was erased that the thief de
fenders hnva sonjected, to, the hond is
still double what the law requires.
