THE BIG STORE SPECIAL CLOAK SALE NOVEMBER 6th.
The Fusionists In Their Dying Gasps Will
Ing to Goto Any End for the Sake
About the largest sample of tho "ro-
formers" dootrino, "tho law be d d"
which has yet appeared, was the man
ner in which the namos were arranged
on the sampU and official ballots. Tho
law says that the party polling tho
largest number of votes at the last
general election shall havo the names
of their candidates appear first on tho
ballot. In the face of this law the re
0 form county clerk prepared the county
tioket with the democratic, and peop
les independent candidates at the
head of the ticket. At tho last oleo
tion Poyntor got a majority of ton over
Hayward in this county. Poynter's
vote was tho combined voto of threo
separate and distinct parties. There
fore the people's independent county
olerk is not willing to concede that
tho democrats and f reo silver republi
cans polled eleven votes at the election
jk last fall, for if ho did the republican
candidates would appear first on the
ballot. We know tho froo silver re
publican vote was small, but wo did
think there wore more than ten dem
ocrats in tho county. Mandamus pro
ceedings wore commenced to compel
jffeto county olerk to comply with the
taw, and a petition prepared and sent
to Lincoln to bo filed in the supreme
court, but so many bogus ballot cases
of a like character wero already there,
the same tactics having boon carried
ot all over the state, the oomrt re
fused to entertain jurisdiction. Tho
potitiou was then changed and filed In
tho district court horo.'and an injunc
tion issued by Judgo Duffy nnd sorvod
on Halo to prevent him printiug and
distributing his bogus ballots among
tho pooplo, bat tho county olork had
taken timo by tho forelock and sent
ballot with tho deputy clerk and Willio
Ward clear to Omaha to havo it print
ed, when thoro wore three printing of
fices in this city which could have dono
the work had they beon given the op
portunity. After tho writ was served
an attorney was sent to Hastings by
tho republican central committee, and
procured from Judgo Boall a writ com
manding Hale to appear before him
Thursday at; 4 p.m. and show cause
why he should not print the ticket ac
cording to law. When tho time for
hearing camo Hale, Wells, Conrad and
Ranney, and also tho attorney for Halo
appeared bofore Judge Beall, and it
was a sure tmng tnat the judgo was
going to do, if ho could, just what the
republican attorney expeoted, and that
was to throw tho caso out of court on
somo technical point, as ho could not
dooido it without incurring the enmity
of tho "reform" offlco seekers which
confronted him. And this is just
what the did. In the copy of tho
writ which was served on Mr. Halo a
mistake of just one uiuglo lettorwas
made, and that ono letter ia all that
pormlttod Judge Beall to stand by tho
"reformers'' in thoir bogus ballot deal
and ovade the statutes. In making
tho copy of tho writ the party who
B. Reese," instead of "Mnnoah B.
Reose." The letters "M" and "N" are
sido by sido on tho typewriter aud tho
oporator simply struck tho wrong key.
Small and insignificant as this matter
may soem it was the only loopholo
that could be found by which those
bogus ballots could be forcodupon the
peoplo and Judgo Boall was willing to
slip through it in tho interests of "re
form. When you aro in the silent
election booth noxt Tuesday look at
tho ballot tho judges of election have
given you to voto and ask yourself this
question: "Shall I voto for a party or
one of its candidates who will utterly
disregard the state laws in hopes that
ho may receive a few extra votes?''
Your own conscience will give you an
answer if you aro a law-abiding citizen.
Do you want n mau for county clerk
who believes the proper party oflicors
havo a right to seo the copy from
which tho ballots aro to be printed and
soo whether the names of thoir candi
dates appear in their proper place, or
do you want a man for county clerk
who thinks that ho can arrange the
names on the ticket, regardless of tho
law, in a maunor which ho thinks will
bo the most advantageous to his party,
and then have somoone quietly slip up
to Omnha and havo tho ballots printed
nnd then try to make the opposition
swallow it whuther they like it or not?

Why Duffy Was "Turned Down "
Wo have on sevoral occasions beon
asked by different parties why tho
populists did not nominate James
Duffy for county judgo this fall. Now
tho reason Mr. Duffy did not roceivo
tho nomination was because he would
not endorse the "grab all" system of
tho other populist office holdors. Some
timo about tho first of the present year
Judge Duffy made tho contention that
tho $100 which tho clerk was drawing
as olork of tho board was illegal and by
the decisions of the supreme court ho
should not have ono cent of it, and
thereby Mr. Duffy uot only incurred
the enmity of tho presont county clerk
but also the enmity of the sheriff,
deputy county attorney, the former
editor of tho Nation, and others who
expected to got a linger in the pie. (f
you don't believe this do a little invest
igating in your own locality and soo if
it was not ono of tlicso four who told
you Dully couldn't be elected it put up.
Thoy didn't want Duffy for fear he
would stop their "the law bo d d,
tako all you can get" tactics. What
they wanted was someone who would
coinoido with their "reform" ideas and
Duffy wouldn't fit tho bill. Had Judge
Duffy told tho present county clerk
that it Wdk all right to tako tho 9100
and anything clso ho got a chnuco to,
and told tho rest of tho pop olllccrs to
do likowiso; bo would undoubtedly bo
now running for judge on tho fusion
tiokot. Judgo Duffy, a n judge, has
been one nt tho fairest and most impar
tial judges that ever presided over tho
jWefceftHr ooitf ?. 4 eittwugk'
wo are of tho opposlto political faith,
we think that Judgo Duffy in his de
feat is more to tho peoplo than tho pop
political ring which turned him down
in their convention.
When a preacher gets down so low
that he will go around over tho county
circulating stories which ho knows do
not even bear tho semblanco of truth
for the sake of obtaining a few votes,
ho has gone about as low as ho can
get. This worthy (?) gentlomnn will
tell theso stories and has hopes that
his word as a minister of tho gospol
and a bolievor in tho doctrine "Thou
shalt not lie" will be all that is neces
sary to corroborato them. He don't
ask tho peoplo to investigate and find
out. no says ue got mo story from a
prominent attorney and has no reason
to doubt (t. It will tako more than the
word of a preacher to stuff suoh a
story down our people hoping thereby
to injure a man who has at ono time
beon tke most prominent attorney in
tho couaty, nnd a woman who has the
respect and best wishes for success of
nine-tenths of the peoplo of Webster
Do you want a man for coun
ty clerk who thinks that whon tho law
allows him extra compensation for
making a numerical index bo should
mako it himself or clso pay for tho mak
ing of it out of such extra compensa
tion, or do you want a man who thinks
that ho can hire extra help at tho ex
pense of 950 per month to tho county
to make a numerical indox nnd save
tliB extra compensation. Vote for
