Republican County Convention.
Loup Citt. Nebr. July 17. 1905.
The Republican electors of Sherman county.
Nebraska, are hereby requested to rsend
delegates from their respective townships to
meet in convention at Loop City, Nebraska.
Monday, Aug. 2Sth. 1905, at 11 o'clock a m. for
the purpose of electing delegates to the
Republican State convention for the year 1905.
to elect a county central committee anti the
chairman thereof, and to place in nomination a
candidate for county treasurer, county clerk,
sheriff, judge. Superintendent, surveyor and
coroner. Also to transact such ocher business
as may properly come before said convention.
The several townships are entitled to
representation as follows: the apportionment
being based upon the vote cast at the last
general election for President Roosevelt, giv
ing each township one delegate for every ten
votes or major fraction thereof and* one
delegate at large:
Oak Creek. 3 Logan. 6
Washington. 7 Elm. 4
Webster.6 Loup City.23
Ashton.s Rockville.6
Clay.6 Harrison .10
Scott. 4 Hazard.6
Bristol . 5 —
It is recommended that no proxies he
allowed, and that the delegates present from
each of the respective townships be authorized
to cast the full vote of their delegation and
that the primaries be held at the usual voting
place in each township on Saturday. August
26th. 1905.
By order of the Republican Central Com
mittee. W. R. Mellor, Chairman.
R. P. Stark, Secretary.
Republican county convention next
Monday, Let there be full delegations
from every township.
And now we know John Wallis a
candidate for governor, if we never
knew it liefore. The Champion, his
home paper, speaks of him as "Farmer
Wall ”
A. Sutton is a candidate for sheriff of
Valley county, and it looks as if Mr.
Sutton had a cinch on the Republican
nomination, which would land him
safely in the office.
Our populist triends held their coun
ty convention on Tuesday of tins week,
and placed the f blowing ticket in the
ri.dd: Clerk. C. F. Beuschatisen; treas
urer, It. M. Iliddleson; judge, J. A
Angier; superintendent, J. F. Nicoson:
sheriff, John Tlirailkill; surveyor. E. B
Corning, and coroner, Dr. J. W. Jones.
The following were elected as delegates
to the pop state convention: II. G.
Patton, S. S. Polski. I. II. Winchell.
L. P Squires. E. B. Hickman, Edward
Snyder,C. H. Winteerand E. A. Brown.
To the judicial convention will go E. 11.
Kittell, H. G. Patton, John Minshuil.
John Boecking. Albert Dickinson, H.
M. Mathew, Edward Snyder and F.
Badura. H.M. Mathew was selected
as state committeeman. T. S. Nightin
gale w-as chairman and S. S. Polski
secretary of the convention. We under
stand resolutions tearing the Repub
liean party into shreds were adopted
We have not the time nor space to
comment on the convention's work this
week, but will pay our respects later.
After this week, the political pot,
which lias been simmering for some
time, will rapidly get to the boiling
point. On Tuesdav of this week the
populists met in their county convention
and as will lie seen in another column,
placed candidates in nomination ter
the various offices within the gift of the
voters of Sherman county. The demo
crats, so far, have not called a county
convention, and we doubt they will,
preferring to act as a free lance, voting
independently and as they choose for
the nominees placed before the people
by the other parties. The Republicans
will hold their couoty convention next
Monday and place a list of winners in
the field for the various county offices
The republican party is now in pos
session of a fair majority in Sherman
county, and with good nominations and
full party vote, cannot fail to win every
office named. However, party lines sit
lightly upon the average voter, and it
behooves the Republicans of Sherman
county to make the choicest selections
possible and to avoid the least friction
They should meet in convention with
out discord and select nominees for the
various places of trust upon whom all
may heartily unite No man should be
uominated upon whom any feasible
tight may be made, but rather those
upon whom all can unite in hearty sup
port. Among the list of those already
spoken of for the various offices, are
strong, good men, win can and will
make a successful fight, these be
chosen. Let the good of the partv and
success be the watchword and we cau
win hands down.
Don't Die Now.
While rooting around in the new ses
ion laws one day this week, Judge
Howard Thompson ran across a law
passed by the late lamented legislature,
providing for a more thorough system
of gathering statistics in the state con
cerning births and deaths and other
happenings in which the health depart
ments are interested. Under the terms
of the law the state board of health is
authorized to appoint a local statistical!
in each incorporated town and side
statisticnns for unincorporated com
munities. These officials are expected
to keep track of all deaths and births
and they are also required to issue a
burial certificate to the undertaker in
the case of every dea’h. No officer<
have vet been appointed in this county,
at least nobody appears u> know it if
they have. So if you are planning on
dying in the near future you had better
put it off until the state board makes
these app >intme.nts. Your demise
might be illegal.—Central City Non
