S;iuitor Mutz Could Xot Come.
A letter to Hon. LewsCerl
ach last Monday morning
from Hon. Otto Mutz stated
that it would be impossible
for him to be at Harrison last
Tuesday as previously an
nounced in the JorRNAb. He
gave as his reason that busi
ness affairs at home needed
his attention but might be
here later on in the campaign.
A vote for Hon. L. Ger
lach and Senator Mutz to
represent the people of this
district in the legislature this
cominur winter means two
1 their equals cannot be found
in this district.
Fresident M Kinly bad confered on
him on the 17th Inst at the University
of CbMtigo the degree of L. L. .
Hon. Iwis Gerlach the fusion candi
date for representative from this ."rrJ
district has a army record as well as A.
G. Fisher the reputdican noniiuen. lie
was a soldier in the nth l'ennsvlvania
state tnelitia and dotibtleHs h tw alsmt as
much camp service as did A. G. Fisher
as that is all be did see. Certainly bis
hi war record ca'nt cut much of a figure
in the fall election.
Under the McKinley administration
the forming of trusts goes merrily on.
The latest to form is the shirt and collar
trust with a capital stock of $1,000,000.
Thus it can be readily seen that the
wealth of the country is gradually but
surely being centralized into the hands
of a few. Certainly the people will pet
their eyes open but we fear it will be too
late to remedy the trouble.
Court reporter for Judge H'estov,

The Journal wishes to say to th
voters of Sioux county that the frit
silver H-publicans of this county are
well Haii.slied with the nomination of
Hon. Lewis Gerlach as their candidate i
for representative. Every free silver re-:
publican should make sure aritl cast a.;a"d lring a democrat: and rmmiun u
vote for him on November 8th. d'iioTat, paper we shall of course place

Capt. A. G. Fisher of (Jhadron, has b. n
appointed by the republican central
committee of this 53rd representative
district to fill vacancy caused by the
resignation of J. H. Jones of Ilushville,
who was the regular nominee of that
party for legislative honors.
The Journal does Viot pretend to
know bow well Mr. Fisher will take with
the voters in the other three counties
composing this representative district
but it does know that Mr. Fishers name
will be dennis in Sioux county Novem
ber 8th. It is a well conceedud fact that
he cai.not carry his party vote in this
county; as a party man, Mr. Fisher's
record is against him. For the past two
years Mr. Fisher has len unable to tell
just where le; "was at," he has played in
the back yard of the free silver camps
ami yet has refused to leave the gold
standard party, hence as the RuKhvillo
Standard says: Has blown hot and
cold, and played loose and fast, and for
that reason if for no other neither of the
parties can be consistunt with themselves
and support him at the polls on Novem
While on the other hand, Hon. Lewis
Gerlach. the fusion candidate is a repre
sentative man; a man "of the people, by
the people and for the people." His
ability cannot be questioned; be is a
business man in every sense of the
term; is honest and upright; "does u o
others as he would that others should
do unto him," He is an ideal man iind
will make an ideal representative of the
people. Mr. Gerlaeh's election is assur
ed beyond a question of a doubt, il all
reports are true and they come from
reliable sources. His majority will lie
much more than lion. C H. Sheldon's
was two years ago. Mr. Gerlach is not
a tcol of the railroads, corporations or
combines and hence, bis bands are not
tied so that ho cannot properly repre
sent the people of this district. A vote
for him is a vote in fav r of honest leg
islation and Hon. V. V. Allen for U.
The county conventions which took
place at the court home a week ago last
Saturday for the purpose of nominating
a county attorney resulted in a misun
derstanding between the three parties
which composed them. Tho two aspir
ants for the nomination were Grant
Guthrie, the present county attorney
and A. T. Clark. The principal trouble
took place in the People's party conven
tion regarding tho agreement to bo car
ried out between the three conventions
the nomination of a candidate forcouuty
attorney. However that may be tho
Journal does not pretend to say what
that agreement was, as the writer was
not preselit w hen the conference commit
tees made tlieir report. Hut both Mr.
Guthrie and Clark claimed the nomina
tion. To, make a long story short, the
pioples party convention adjour.ied with
out making a nomination not-with-stand-iug
Chairman Raum declared A. T. Clark
the nominee. Hut secretary Puddy re
fused to ci rlify to the noimination and
thus left the affair in a muddled state.
Both gentlemen, were full of determina
tion to seek relief in the courts for w hat
they thought was a vindication of their
rilits regarding tho nomination for
ciuiity attorney in the people's parly
convention. But us the free silver Re-
publicans had nominated Mr. Guthrie 'or
county attorney and the Ilemocrats had
nominated Mr. (Mark for the same office,
they each one after tyireful consideration
concluded to drfp the people's party
nomination each would go oi Iho free
silver Republican and 1 Hmtocratic ticket
r s.x ctiv.ly, thus making a three t(r.
nered light as lietween the thrne parties
1 1 the county. Thus, the Joi rnal bus
