Tlie election on Tuesday, so far as
the state was concerned, was all that
republicanism could ask, going hand
somely for the head of the ticket, but
poor old Sherman county on the local
ticket stands out in bold relief as one
of the f«w remaining counties in this
great commonwealth to give populist
majorities to the greater portion of
the county ticket. Sheriff Williams.
County Assessor Bechthold and
Coroner Main being all the republi
cans could pull through. There is
some reason in all this, which is
| accounted for in the guerilla warfare
j of a renegade, who having been
! honored by the republican party in
j Sherman county with two terms in
I the county clerk's office, turned
i traitor to the party which had thus
■ honored him, and has for the past
| two or three years, and in fact before
liis official time was out. done his
l>est to betray the partv and bank
rupt it of votes. The returns < f the
election do not show he is to the
j good in his efforts so far as he is con
eernea. tne men whom he supported
losing votes by Ids efforts in their
behalf. In fact, it is substantially
true that some of those whom he sup
i porteti w ished, and so stated, that
i they were sorry he had piaced their
■ names at the head of his personal
| ticket, believing and so stating that
they Mould lose more' votes than they
I would gain, and: the vote shows they
I were right in their conclusions. It is
j too bad for honest politics that such
1 a renegade and malcontent should
exist in Sherman county, but lice are
sometimes hard to get rid of. The
Northwestern has not time this
week to give the tabulated statement
of the county vote, but will do so
next week. We give below, however,
the majorities of the various county
: candidates and the vote of the head
: of the ticket:

. What can the jaw bone bray about
j in this election?
.1 udge Hostetler had no opposition
| in this county, there being but one
vote recorded for another.
Sheriff Williams had a larger ma
; jority over his opponent than Bill
' Fisher received as his vote.
Peter Rowe insists had it not been
i for his strenuous work Rol Ilendrick
1 son would have been defeated.
What.s in a name? Taylor Gibson
j ouod it out in the past election, it
■ was too bad the ill repute of another
i should bear fruits in his defeat.

The recorded vote of Clerk Beus

Last Friday morning the Com
mercial bank of Grand Island closed
I its doors and turned .the institution
I over to the State Banking Board for
j examination. Later the board found
: the bank all right and ordered to re
open its doors on Tuesday of this
week. The cause of the closing was
the suicide of the cashier of a bank
at Chariton, Iowa, to which bank the
Grand Island concern had loaned
some *50.000. and the suicide of the
cashier caused the Grand Island bank
to indulge in a scare lest there should
be a run on it* finances. W. W.
Morsman and Harry Iiawding had
some *i,”00 tied Up in the closing,
which we are glad proved only for a
few days. The boys are to be con
Editor Northwestern—At your
request I shall endeavor to give a
brief account of my trip to Oklahoma
and the Farmers' National Congress,
which I trust may interest your
readers. When I received my appoint
ment from Gov. Sheldon I made up
my mind to go whether I could leave
my work or no. So on t>ct. 16th 1 j
took the train, our party consisting|
of one. at Palmer I met Mr. and Mrs.
J. A. Oilis and Mr. and Mrs. W. S.
Hather of Ord, bound for Oklahoma
City, and having three hours to wait
in Omaha we went to the Home Show
where we saw Omaha’s champion
drivers and heard some good music.
Arriving at Kansas City at 7 a. m.
the next day, we found our train
would not leave until 9 p. m. so made
a tour of the city and was surprised,
to see so many large buildings in
course of construction, one 17 stories
high being noticed. The Royal Stock
Show being in full swing, the after
noon was pleasantly spent there, the
cattle and nog exhibits were espec
ially good. 1 have a picture taken at
the “Royal” I should like you each
to see. Returning to the station at
8 p. m. I met Senator Goodrich of
Fairmont and Henry Massman of
Battle Creek and we cast our lots to
gether. That night we comfortably
rolled through Kansas in the Pullman
“Utopia" and daylight gave us our
first glimpse of Oklahoma* Perhaps
we expected too much but it was dis
appointing. The hills were rocky,
rock and soil being red. and covered
with “Black Jack’’( a scrub oak), very
little grass and I saw very little stock.
We stoppped for breakfast at Osage,
where I met the first Indian but
should not have recognized him as
such had he not told me. At Cleve
land I saw a forest of oil derricks and
found much natural gas, several large
jets are left burning the year round.
At noon we found ourselves at Okla
homa City. Our first duty was to
register at headquarters and found a
room and dinner. I believe the people
(live in restaurants-and rented rooms,
for every other house seemed to be a
, rooming house and restaurant. The
meeting of the Congress was held in
the auditorium, a fine new building
with comfortable opera chairs, seat
ing 5.000. Pres. Stahl called the con
gress to order at 2 p. m,. with about
1.000 delegates present. The first
afternoon and Friday morning were
taken up with addresses and responses.
I assure you when they finished we
knew we were welcome, and incident
ally all about the greatness of Okla
homa City. Pres. Thompson- of the
Coamber of Commerce told us briefly
that at 12 o'clock. April 22,1889, there
was no Oklahoma City, the next
morning it had a population of 3,000
and business was begun. Today the
population is 40,046, there is four rail
roads. 36 miles of street railway, 42
miles water mains carrying 6,000,000!
gallons of water daily, 63 miles sewers.
28 miles paved streets. 44 miles side
walks, 30 churches, 12 schools, 10
banks, 02 jobbing houses. 80 factories,
and I might add. more automobiles
and more reckless drivers than any
othercity. I was almost afraid to cross
the street. The Chamber of Commerce
gave the delegates an afternoon at
the State Fair grounds, a ten coach
train was tilled to standing room.
The fair ground contains horse, cattle
and hog barns, an auditorium, agri
cultural building covering l b acres,
an ampitlieatre. an A 1 race track
and other necessary buildings. The
afternoon was passed with broncho
busting, inspecting the stock exhibits
which were very good, and eating a
car of watermelons. On Sunday after
noon we were taken to see a model
farm. 30 miles from the city. It was
the best I had seen, the alfalfa made
five crops and the corn and cotton
were fine, but this was the only good
corn I saw and the average cotton
made a bo A 250 pounds per acre and
was worth 3i cents per pound. Now
for the work of the convention. E. C.
Ellis of Kansas City spoke on “Water
Way'', arid said tills is the solution of
the freight problem. One-ninth of
our present rate Will place Nebraska
crops at tiie seaboard, 64 per cent of
congressional appropriation goes to
the navy and for wars, and only 4
per cent to improve our waterways.
Asst. P. M. General Vic key said we
must have the Parcel Post. Postal
Saving Bank and Postal note. Miss
E, J. Charlton of the Iowa Agricul
tural college told how she gives short
courses in home economies over the
state, helping the girls to be better
home makers. Hon. F. A. CoLton of
Indiana, whose subject was “Child
Nature," summed up his remarks by
saying, “The end of all education is
to make men and women.” Prof.
Webster of the Agricultural Bureau,
Washington, D. C., said the farmers
should make their own butter and
operate their ojvn factories. The
farm butter is the best in the world,
but we mpst be more careful in
handling our milk. Last year
pounds of farmers butter was reno
vated and the renovators made 5
cents per pound on this, all through
the farmers carelessness. The chief
of the Oklahoma City lire department
told us how he trained bis horses by
