Burr Is Mill Cranky.
For the last few months Burr of
the Blue Hill Times Winner has been
blowing bis silly bugle about Judge
Gaslin getting drunk, and says "when
a man that purports to be a news
paper man remains in ignorance of a
"fact" that so affects the people etc.
It would look as if he ought to change
his calling." The facts are that
Burr n mad at Gaslin because he
would not give him a verdict in a
certain liable case in which the fool
editor thought he had a sinch, and
because of that we apprehend h e de
sires to kick the judge out of exis
tence by lying about him or making
misstatements in regard to his being
drank. AVe doubt whether Burr
could substantiate his assertions if he
should be compelled to in a court
of first resort. As far as The Chief
is concerned it does not trump up
sensational articles on officials because
it is "mad at them" nor yet because
we are cranky on same subject and
hypocritical on others. No sir, we
fought Judge Gaslin two years ago
on the ground that he was not a fit
man to be judge for various reasons,
and the people said we were mistaken
and we abide by their verdict It
has become too common for news
papers like the Times-Winner and othj
era of simliar caliber to trump up an
sustained charges against public offi
cials, whom they are but little ac
quainted withand know absolutely less
except heresay. Burr's attack on the
Judge seems to be a pure ease of
malignant spite work. If you have
facts Burr dish them up and do not
equivocate further. Ton probably
depend upon what women and chil
dren tell you more than you do yoar
own judgment, as yon are somewhat

Judge West ofBedCloadis favorably
mentioned as the probable republican
candidate for county judge, not wishing
to take an active part in convention that
will convene ere long, we therefore rise in
all modesty to announce the fact that
Blue Hill can furnish a suitable candidate
for that position. We suggest the name
of P. A. Wells, who is favorably known
throughout the county and is a young
man of rare legal ability, and we can as
sure the people that if he should be so
fortunate as to secure the nomination,
his election is certain. Mr. Wells has
many warm friends, both socially and po
litically who will earaebtly work for his
election, The wisdom of the convention
in our judgment wDl consider the name
of P. A, Wells wisely, before acting apon
