At the Jiead of this column this
week, the Northwestern presents for
your consideration the republican
state, judicial, county and supervisor
ticket. Ychi cannot better it by vot
ing instead for the ticket of any other
party, and the Northwestern asks
your careful consideration of the
merits of our party candidates before
exercising your franchise on the 5th
day of November.
' in the republican candidate for
supreme judge, you have one of the
brightest, legal minds of the state, an
honest, clean mail in every particu
lar, and well worthy the support of
every voter in the state, regardless of
political affiliation.. No word we can
utter could add to the well known
reputation of M. B. Reese as man or
jurist, nor any word of political op
ponents detract from the brilliant
record lie lias made at the liar or on
Messrs. A'. B. Anderson and Geo.
Uoupland for regents of the State
University are t>oth men with splen
did reputations and will prove an
honor to the party and men who
honor them with their votes. ,
Eor the office of railway commis
sioner. Henry T. Clarke will succeed
himself in the office. Mr. Clarke lias
| proven a good, strong man for the
place and will, as he should, be re
tained for the coming term.
For judge of this 12tli judicial dis
trict. Bruno O. Hostetler, our brainy
judge, who is Serving his first term,
seems to have a walk away, and well
he should, for he lias made a reputa
tion as one of the best judges of any
district in the state, ana so well is he
known and liked that the opposition
failed to select any opponent to him
at the late primaries. It is not
necessary to say one word in com
mendation of him—his record speaks
in glowing terms in his favor and lie
will be returned to the bench with
practically no opposition, as should be
Tlios R. Lay. who heads the coun
ty ticket for clerk of the court and
county matters, is a young man of
bright attainments apd will make a
competent and thoroughly efficient
officer in that department of county
affairs. In business he has always
been alert and active and has com
manded the highest appreciation of
liis employers and the public with
w hom he lias ceme in contact. a«d
will carry with him into the clerk's
office a’ well-equipped mentality,
strong, vigorous constitution and a
competent and well-defined knowledge
I oi the duties before him. He is a
safe man lor the place.
ror county treasurer, you could
search the county over and not find a
‘.tetter man tor that most important
uifice than our candidate, D.-C. Grow.
tVith his intimate knowledge of coun
ty affiairs. gained front years' exper
ience as supervisor of tiiis district,
and from his long years of residence
in Sherman county and perfect, know
ledge of nearly every foot of soil in
the county, as well as an acquaint
ance with every nrtm,woman, itoy and
girl and fact of interest to our people,
coupled with a brain capable of tak
ing in every detail of the treasurer's
office as easily and familiarly as the
average school boy can con the multi
plication table. D. C. Grow is just
the man to be at the head of the
county's finances. Honest, intelli
gent. capable, wise, and with all the
attributes one could ask in an official,
it is only a wonder that he could not
have been persuaded years since to
take the place now asked for him by
the republican party, and not atone
by them but a very large number of
voters of other faith. That I). C.
Grow will be the next treasurer of
Sherman county we fully believe and
that he will prove one of the best
ever in that office in tins county
every one will be wililng to admit.
It is utterly useless for us to urge
the election of Uncle Lou Williams
to the sheriff’s office, as we would be
talking only to those who feel as we
do and will vote for his retention in
the office he has so faithfully filled.
We know of nothing surer than that
L. A. Williams will be returned to
the sheriff’s office by the largest
majority ever given to'any candidate,
even adding to the way-up majority
he received two years ago. which wals
considered almost out of sight. He
lias practically no opposition.
The voters can do no better than
re elect- M. H. Mead as superinten
dent. of Sherman county schctois.
During the past two years ne has
•v. ‘- . ■- .. 1 In '• »
worked indefatigable for tlie upbuild
of our school system and has lost no
opportunity for their betterment in
every particular. He knows every
detail of the work even to the finest
minuta. is alive to their needs,
watches their advancement and
has an ever watchful care over all.
Mr. Mead is an especially well equip
ped man for school interests. He has
made it a life study, is a man of
splendid educational qualifications,
and is the best adapted to carry on
the educational work of any man in
Sherman county. That we believe
he will be re-elected, goes without
saying, as tlie voters of this county
want the best at the head of their
school system, and there lives not a
man in the county today, who is pos
sessed of a knowledge of educational
affairs, but will acknowledge to him
self, even if he witholds that belief
from others, that M. H. Mead is bv
far the best man in the county to
have at tlie head of our schools, from
an educational and business stand
point. Vote for the best interests of
our schools by re-electing M. H. Mead
as county superintendent of schools.
As coroner. I>r. xV. S. Main has no
opposition, and, if he had, would be
elected anyway, for the people know
when they have a good thing and
will undoubtedly keep the doctor in
that position as long as lie will con
sent to preside over the deliberations
attendant on that office.
What we said last w eek in regard to
tlie republican candidate for county
assessor, our old soldier friend. Lewis
Bechthold, goes this week, next week
and forever. Mr. Bechthold. with his
six years' experience as assessor of
this township, is well equipped for
the duties devolving upon the county
assessor and if elected, as there seems
to be little ot no doubt, will prove a
most efficient servant of the people
in that capacity.
Three members of the board of
supervisors are to tie elected in this
I county this fall in the second, fourth
! and sixth supervisor districts. H. B.
| Musser is the republican candidate
| in the second and is an extensive
! farmer and cattleman, and with his
! well known business qualifications
| will prove a valuable man on the
! hoard. W. T. Gibson, the well known
i bridge contractor, is the republican
candidate in tlie fourth supervisor
district aud is well qualified by past
experience in county affairs to be on
the board. A strong tight is on over
that office, as J. I. Hepew. a strong
man and also a republican, lias been
put up by petition for supervisor in
the same district, by republicans,
populists and democrats, who are
dissatisfied with tlie regular nominee,
in the sixth supervisor district, Wm.
Jacobs, a former member of the board,
is tihe regular nominee and we under
stand will also have opposition by
petition, though as to that we have
Cl cancel lor Andrews of the State
University, one E. Benjamin, who is
an apologist for such men as Rocke
feller, Harriman. Hill and men of
that ilk. and who would place men in
the penitentiary, according to his pre
conceived ideas in favor of trusts,
'combines, etc., should they by any
t means fail to look favorably upon cor
porate wealth and multi-millionaire
robbers, adds to his brilliant record
by predicting that Taft, should he be
nominated by the republicans, would
ice defeated by Bryan, whom he as
sures a confiding public will be the
democratic nominee for the presidency
and says the east is against Taft,
who he says is only boosted by Roose
velt to forward the president’s wan
ing ideas of reform. E. Benjamin
says the east, (and we suppose he
means the wealthy Jobber portion, of
which he seems to be spokesman)
wants Governor Hughes of New York
for president, whom he eulogizes to
the sky as a patriot, naming the one
great thing Hughes has done, namely.
(veto the 2-cent law in that state.
E. Benjamin, it must be remembered,
is a democrat. He may be a wonder
fully accomplished educator, but his
ideas of wealth, corporate interests,
trusts, combines and hero-worship of
monied interests make him a danger
ous man to place at the head of Ne
braska’s greatest educational insti
We ask our readers to carefully note
the legal in this week's paper in re
gard to a bond levy. At the coming
election the voters will be asked to
vote for or against a ten-mill levy for
1908. 1909 and 1910 to *pay off the
bonded indebtednuss on thecounty of
$74,900, which becomes due in 1910.
.Head the notice carefully and be pre
pared to vote your sentiments made
after mature deliberation.
And while you are thinking about
it, don't forget that O.U Grow, re
publican nominee for cgmty treas
urer, was one of the boys in blue
during the civil war, going out to
tight Uncle Sam’s battles when only
in his sixteenth" year. Honor the
soldier by making him county treas
urer at the coming election.
There were no announced candi
dates for surveyor at the primaries
by any party, so it will be go as you
please at the coming election. '
Don’t forget to acquaint yourselves
with the bond levy proposition before
