I take pleasure insaying
that I attended the last three teach

Sioux county und found the work admir
ably adapted to the need of the county.

would help to (it his teachers for better
work. U is my opinion that l has (lone

The Office of Co. Supt.
We w ish to call the attention of the
voters and all that are interested in the
education of jour children to the fact
that there i not an ofll :e in the county
where there can lie more harm done than
m this ollice, and on the other baud there
can he the same amount of good done
if the ollice is properly conducted. The
law surrounds all the ot'ier offices, but
not so with the county superintendent.,
for he can build up your schools or he
can tear them down, and your only re
course is to vote him out of ollice when
the time comes, hut what are you going
to do about your children that have been
robbed of what justly belongs to I hem
durin,-; this tune? Don't understand me
lo say that there is no law at all for the
superintendent, but Ihe veiy essential
points are not covered that is his discret
ionary power as to who is competent to
teach, and a great many things thai will
injure I he school work that in some
instances you can never remedy. The
gravest questions that arise in the
col. nty come before Ihe county superin
tendent for his judicial action, and now
comes the lime when this work will go
up or down. We know whereof we
heak and if vour present county superiii
tciit nl would express his opinion we
assure you that he would agiee with this
statement. He ure soiry to say that iu
this county loo little importance is plac
ed on this the greatest ollice, or work
that we have not only in the county but
in Ihe state, Take our education from
us and where are we? It is to some the
Same as the light, darkness and changes
of the seasons. It is here, and we are
using it, but we want to say right here
that it is through some one's mid night
oil being burned that we retain our
educational uttn, women and institutions.
Are von interested in this great work
vo'er, or is it a matter of politics regard
less of qua lidcn tioii? The question Is
always with you who shall he your
servant. Vote for the interest of your
children, and not the man.

of Ihe district do not know him on the

wat one of the fellows who stood by 1). E
Thompson. The people of his district
protested against his action without
regaid to iff i 1 1 n s but Fisher pntd no at-
id ion t' tl .fill. Til" reason was that he
was bioiigbl by Thompson to betray bis
coii'-tit i)f-ii t s. He sold out his people for
the cash there was in it. S.nce letiring

he has uniformly got "together a hand of
wilnesscsand taught them how to perjure
themselves to make out a defence. One
of the constant crimes that Fisher com
mits is the siilximalmn of perjury in
criminal cases. But a year ago he was
up iu Wyoming and got a voting fellow
to commit -rjury. The oilier attorneys

is what the Omaha Bee, the leailiing

ing. The jury failed t.i agree in the first
McNealey trial. In the second trial
Beach swore as he did at the preliminary
and told the court that .McNealey'sattor
neys had told him it, would not he perjury.
Mi.Nealey's lawyers were Allen G. Fisher,
of Chadron, Nebraska,; Gewrge Walker,
of Harrison and E.H. Dimbell, of Douglas
Graphic fame. The court appointed a
committee of attorney's and at once ad
journed. The committee made its report,

Fisher and Walker waived examination
and were bound over to the next, term ol

Fisher is one of hiulrcu's prominent
Fisher constantly procures false affi
davits to Iw made and filed in court at bis
borne in Chadron and this is notorious; in
addition to this it is known and can be
proven thai he has frequently offered and
paid money to men to commit perjury
and this fact has been proved on linn in
Chadron and he has never gone on the
stand to deny it, He has time and again
forged the names of people to affidavit's
in support of motions for new trials. He
steals court files and mutilates records
and does many things that have lauded
other men in the penitentiary. Fisher i
has Fwmdled clients with whom he lias
done business out of thousands of dollars
of money and for this money judgments
have Is-en entered ag.Mnst turn at Chadron
and are now on record there and unpaid.
If iin one doubts t bat these judgments
n.-e against Fisher just write to the clerk
of the district court at Chadron.
The rank and file ct the republican
party in the 15 judicial district would
never have consented to Ihe nomination
ol 1-isher for the important position of
district judge. His nomination was
brought abeut by the tshrewd manipula
tion of Fisher himself with the all power
I ul assistance of the Elkhorn Railroad's
attorney's and pass distributors headed
by the chief convention fixer, R R. Dick
son of Holt county. Dickson's chief
clients in Ibis district, are cattle rustlers.
Willi Judge Harrington and VVeslover on
Ihe bench cattle rustlers have ceased
operations as they are promptly tried and
when convicted were given such senten
ces as made the business nf cattle sleal
ih). very unpiyiular. With a corrupt
man like Fisher or a weak and pliant in
competent like Wills on the bench Mr.
Dickson's clients would be treated to such
consideration as would make cattle
I nst ling, hog and horse stealing again a
common practice iu tins district as il
was before dyvsof Harrington and Wcst
over on the disl net bench. The voters
of this district do not want such a con
dii ion of affairs in this district any more
than the rank and file of he republican
party wanted such a man as Fi-.ber
nominated. To assist in ihe election of
Fisher and Wills these three Dickson.
Kinder, and Wills met in Dickson's
ollice conspired, planed and dictated
thuir long and malicious tissue of false
hoods that they had printed in the
Frontier, and it was these three who
directed ibe mailing of that dirty news
paper over this district.
In the face of these conditions the
Independent feels called upon lo tell who
this man Fisher is, and also to loll the
voters the kunl ol men who are backing
him in bis race for a position his last
