For County Attorney,
Make your mark in the circle at

the Straight Republican Ticket.
We note that the republicans of
Valley county have nominated our
gnd friend John Wall of Arcadia,
tor representative. No better selec
tion could have been made. Johu is
au able man and has su army of
friunds in all parties. He has served
this county well as county clerk,
and will l>e a credit to the county
that elects him for to represent them
in the legislative hulls of the state.
We predict for him a handaoiue mu
jority on election day.

Mr UrttiHa?
The debate between lion. Nonii
Brown und lion. \V. L, Greene, ran
delate* for congress for thi* tin
sixth district nnd wliiclt took plant
at tlie opera house in this city
was attended by a well filled Ijoijsi
Hepubliean* and populist* frun
< very part of t he county were pres
•ml. Mr. Brown opened the debate
and produced a good argument aloo*
the line of prosperity, giving fault
und figure* to show that prices foi
all kinds of farm product* had mu
lerially advanced, and Hint there war
a much greater demand for luboi
and wages better. He read from
Greene’s speech of I Slit! issued at
that, time in circular form and which
stated that tin* prices of farm prod
nots would never rise so long as the
gold standard prevailed, and then
turning to Mr. Greene asked him to
tell the audience why it wa* that hi*
prophecies ha* not come true.
Mr. Brown finished hi* opening
address and retired to his seat
amid great applause.
VV'lien Mr, Greene rose to answer lie
was accorded the same welcome giv
en his opponent, Our people had
heard him speak before arid knew
that at least they would be highly
ilo positively asserted that price*
were no belter. He rniss quoted
New York priee* and then for a
telling effect upon the audience de
clared that, tiiey were Chicago price*
und told those who did’nt fielive it
to couie to Ids ho'el after the meet
ing wa* over und hu would oouvince
them. It, »o happened that Mr
Waite, the secretary of the meeting
had in his po*ac**iou a correct und
complete list of the Chicago market
reports for .'JO years back, and after
tin* meeting accepted the iovitution
to meet him at the hotel It wa*
at that meeting that Mr. Greene wa*
forced to admit that he had been
quoting New York instead of Chica
go prices, lie wu* asked to make
comparison in prices and when he saw
tiial he wu* cinplclely cornered he
said that it did no good to convince
a muii ugitinsi ms win ami mat. ne
did not want to waste any more time
with him. But to go hark to the
stuge we find .Mr. Greene in a dra
matic way and with terrible force
trying to make the audience believe
they were no better off than they
were under the Cleveland adminis
tration. While he waa quoting
prices questions were ask him from
the audience and in his ferocious
effort to drown them down by sloop
and cutting personal drives he lost
his temper and instead of satisfact
orily explaining, he called the re
publicans set of fools. This elid
ed great u applause from Jim Zink,
the chairman of the fusion county
central committee and from other
leading pops who always spat
when Jim spats. There were pops
as well as republicans, however that
were uot satisfied with his artful
dodges to avoid answering those all
important questions. One gentle
ask him if he kuew the price of
spring waives. Mr. Greene was so
irritated that all the answer he gave
whs to iutimate that the man was a
calf himself. A man from the aud
n*nee, however, answered the qties
tion and said #IK. per head.
When Mr. Brown rose to tvply
lie appoligised for Greene, saying
that he was sorry that the Judge
would call the republicans fools jual
because they wauled to know the
facta. lie refuted every statement
made by bta oppouwnt ami very clev
erly held him up to redteulw. He
was very geullemauly throughout
the meeting ami won the high rt
aped of ail present The s|ieakcrs

e. h. watkinson, Prop.
lie In to easy with Greene. It wants Homebody
who is Just as diaeeltful and c bun lug as he Is
ami who will handle him without gloves on."
That ealf deal sorter got away with the
Judge dld'nt It."
"Did you note the great applause from the
populist side of the house when Greene cruel
ed his witty Joltes at Hrown and how still
It was when tie was trying with all the force
and eloquence he could command to score a
point on prices."
"A man must he foolish to get up before an
intelligent audience like that ami try to make
out that we arc no better off than we wi re
under the Cleveland admlstmtion And ibats
Just what Greene done. Why, practical every
day experience teaches us better, ami It 1s t
necessary to have It hammered Into us eith
"1 am n pop but not a fuslotilst and wont
vote a fulon ticket. Hut be will be elected
because the pops arc swallowed by the dem
ocrats and only a few of us have got out of
the swallow yet "
"Gieene should have voted against that I)lng
ley tarriff bill. Thats what we sent him there
for: besides If he bad Hrown eould'nt keep
dlngleylng at him all the time."
"1 don't think that man ever lived that eaa
talk more and say less In the same length of
time than Greene. He cuts loose worse than
a threshing machine."
I have voted for Greene twice but I don't
think there In much to choose from between
Itrowo and him, I think they have agreed to
divide the emolument* of the office no matter
which one I* elected." Wonder a pop
wont think of.
"Hrown I* an able man: I would vote for
him If he waHontbe pop ticket.''
"If Oreene bad let the war question alone It
would have done him more gooji Moat all
the people are patriotic enough to uphold the
administration on the war question.".
"Why. of course, all thl* about the mistake*
of the war department U nothing but cam
palgu buncumb."
"That no. Don t you remumher that Bryan
wantod to open the campaign at Chicago ou
the mistake* of the war department?"
“I came In to get a me** of green* cooked
brown." "And did you get It?" "Ye*, but
It waH a conglomerated me**. Greene ha*
actually Induced price* to fuse."
The Star of Km pin?, % paper pub
lished at Kearney mentions W. L.
Greene as a “republican populist who
is to h reasonable extent in syra
patby with the present administra
tion at Washington,” when the faets
are thut Greene hus been a rank
rubitl democrat all his life and there
are men living in tb is town that sat
they knew him from boyhood and
that he was a tnembei of the
Knights of the Golden Circle, during
the war, and oue of the iu mt out
spoken copperheads that Indiana
whn disgraced with The Umpire is
an ardent supporter of Mr. Greene
Vet anyone can read between
the line* and discern the Um
pires pag when it further sms:
"Well take no more chance* on
aola like Gov. ItuUier." and again
when it sat a that “Judge Greene
has suffered from the vile strong
drink" and the editor of that sheet
knows that Mr. Greene has not quit
••suffering from the vile sttoug
drink" and tin- present prospects a>e
he never will tf the Ntar of Km
