Youir Vote Solicited.
I sincerely regret that my official
duties will prevent my seeing all my
friends over Sherman county during
the present campaign, but take this
method of thanking voff one and all
for your hearty support in the past
and trusting my work in the sheriff’s
office has given sufficient satisfaction
to entitle me to your continued sup
port in the coming election, Nov.5Ui.
Again thanking you for your most
liberal support in other campaigns
and asking your vote once more, I am
yours, most obediently to command
L. A. Williams.
Vote for D. C. Grow for county
treasurer. He is one of the most
competent men in the county for
A vote for Thos. E. Lay is a vote
to place a rising and competent young
republican in the office of the county
clerk. He will honor your confidence.
Put in your vote and best work for
D. C. Grow for county treasurer. He
is one of the most conversant men in
the county with regard to that office.
Bruno O. Hostetler will be elected
by a majority little short of the vote
for him for district judge. He has no
opposition. A wise thing that the
opposition will help make his election
A vote for L. A. Williams for
sheriff, is a vote for one of the best
peace officers this county ever had.
Help make his majority the largest
ever given any candidate for any
county office in old Sherman.
For county assessor you want a man
who has had experience along those
lines. Lewis Bechthold has had six
years’ experience as assessor for Loup
City township, which is a good equip
ment for tlie county assessor’s office.
Give the old soldier your vote.
A vote for M. A. Mead, means a
vote to retain at the head of our
county schools the best equipped man
in educational affairs within the
county limits. He is acknowledged
by all to be the right man in the
right place. The school system of
Sherman county was never better.
Help continue our educational
matters in the lead with the best
counties in the state by depositing
your vote for M. H. Mead for countv
b. Benjamin Andrews, chancellor
of the state university, denies the
rumor that he intends resigning from
that position. If he does not close
the talking gap in his hairv covering,
the regents would do a good deed in
making the above rumor a fact by re
questing him to do so. The state of
Nebraska should not have an apologi
zer for the Rockefeller ilk at the head
of its great educational institution,
no matter how bright an educator he
may be. There are others equally
bright and far more worthy the
Owing to the united action of all
the clearing houses and banks over
the entire United States, caused bv a
shortage of currency in New York and
eastern money centers, and their tem
porary refusal to ship currency to
their western correspondents, they in
turn are forced to adopt the same
rule toward, the country banks.
Hence, the country banks are tem
porarily unable to ship in currency,
which condition lias caused a number
of banks throughout the state to re
fuse payment In currency, while
others only pay in small amounts
ranging from $10 to $50 to any one
depositor. The LoupCity hanks were
fortunate iia having more than their
usual reseive in their vaults, and are
able to do all the business of this
community, as they have been doing,
if the people will use good judgment
and demand only what cash they
need to transact their business, in
place of being alarmed over a con
dition that will pass away in a few
days and for which your focal banks
are in no manner to blame and can’t
control. Your banks were never in
better condition than at this time;
they are perfectly solvent, your money
is absolutely safe. Do not worry a
particle. We have our money in the
banks and are not wanting to draw
it out to hide it. We know it is per
fectly safe. Not a single bank in
Nebraska has failed and they were
never in a better condition. You
should be proud of your hw.nk*
For Supreme Judge
Hon. M. B. Reese was born in
Macoupin county, Illinois, in 1839, a
fanner boy. and doubtless would be a
farmer with a ranch 100 miles square
for a workshop somewhere in western
Nebraska, had he not injured an arm
about the time he was ready to
branch out, and this turned his at
tention to another profession, for in
those days a farmer didn’t get to use
a. riding plow or cut cornstalks by
prosy as they do now. While he was
living on the farm, Judge Reese com
pleted the course perscribed by the
country schools, and then worked his
way through a seminary near his
home. He was admitted to practice
and removed to Osceola, Iowa Illinois
having become entirely too eastern
for him. He lived in Iowa from 1865
in 1871, when he heard the call of the
prairies and removed to Plattsmouth,
where he again hung out his shingle.
Practically the entire life of J udge
Reese in Nebraska has been spent
under the limelight. He was a mem
ber of the constitutional convention
of 1875: district attorney of the fourth
judicial district for three terms:
supreme judge ana aean ot tne law
deuartment of the state university.
All positions of the greatest import
ance. How well he has done his
duty and how faithful he has been to
the trust reposed in him. is answered
by the endorsement given him by his
party at the late primary election.
Judge Reese was slow to ask for that
endorsement, and only allowed the
use of his name after many news
papers and many people had called
upon him to again assume leadership.
The republican candidate is a mag
nificent specimen of physical man
hood, about six feet tall and broad in
proportion. He has snow-white hair
and lots of it, and a long white
moustache. He is a good specimen
of the man who is strong enough to
blaze a trail in a new country or lead
an old country out of a rut. And he
is even tempered; good natured, a
wit and an orator. He catches an
audience Vith his humor and he holds
them while he clinches his arguments.
In 1887 he served as grand master of
the Masons, and he has always taken
great interest in the lodge. In 1899
he received votes for United States
senator though he was not an active
candidate for the position.
Speaking of Judge Reese, Governor
Sheldon said: “The republicans have
nominated a candidate in whom the
people have every confidence. Judge
Reese has a spotless Tecord. both
public and private. He is a student,
a scholar and a tireless worker. I
have been his admirer for years. He
has always stood for the best interests
of the people regardless of the con
sequence to himself. He has been
opposed to machine rule in politics
and has fought for years that the
government and the people might be
brought closer and closer together.
In the early days back in Wahoo he
encountered the hostility of ring rule,
and he has always had the emnitv of
those who prefer machine control in
politics rather than have the ma
jority of the people in control. He
should receive tiie entire republican
vote and doubtless will receive many
of the votes of the opposition parties
because he stands for the very best in
state government. He is one of Ne
braska's best men and will make a
splendid record on the bench.”
While the Northwestern has no
fight of a personal nature against any
candidate for any state or county
office put up by the opposition, yet it
urges all the voters to stand by
the old ship of republicanism, which
has always proven the safest and
staunchest for voyages of all kinds.
You can always depend on the repub
lican party to do the right thing. It
has the best policies, the safest
financial, record, and has kept our
country in the harbor of security all
these years. In county matters, you
say you always vote for the man.
Correct you are, when that man is a
republican. But not always correct
when that man belongs to another
party. Remember when you cast
your vote, that the republican town
ship is in the interests of the county
republican. That the county repub
lican helps the state republican. That
the state republican cuts a big swath
in making the government republi
can. Think of that, when you think
of voting for the man, without regard
to partf affilliations. Remember, one
vote, and that one yours, may make
the township republican, may make
the county republican, may make the
state republican. One vote, and that
may be yours, can elect or defeat the
republican candidate for state office,
for the legislature, and the absence of
that one legislator may make your
party the minority one, may defeat
your party man for the U. S. senate,
and the absence of that one D. S.
senator may give the upper honse in
j to the hands of the opposition and it
defeat the aims and work of a presi
dent in accord with vour best views.
It is always safest to vote your ticket
No better men could have been
selected by the republican party for
regents than Chas. B. Anderson and
George Coupland. Honor the state
j by helping make them the next
