(By J. M.Chnflln.)
All men have the right to ailllliate
with the party of theirchoice, and that
right carries with it the further right
to cast their votes for such candidates
us thev believe the fittest to fill the
oftices for which- they have been nomi
nated, since it would be a travesty on
the elective franchise to say that one
must vote for all the candidates placed
in nomination by the party witli
which he atllliates irrespective of
whether those nominees are the best
qualified for discharging the duties
incumbent upon them, in case of their
If the elect' r is to be bound by such
an obligation, then he would better
withdraw from all party alliance and
conduct his own campaign independ
ently of what others may do or say,
since anything short of such a course
would be but to render the secrecy of
the ballot a useless as well as a mean
The day when the voter was com
pelled to announce his vote at the
time of offering the same has past,
let us hope, never more to return
while free speech, free press and free
dom of choice remain as so many safe
guards to liberty.
If these propositions be true, then
the only remaining duty for the elect
or to perform is that of voting for the
man whom he believes will render the
best possible service in the interests
of the people, which will do away
with the common abuse of the ballot
in voting for men of inferior qualifica
tions, with the exception that it were
better to vote for an ignorant man
than for a corrupt one, and take
chances of enlightening him after he
takes the ollice.
Rut as it seldom occurs that we are
left to make choice between the two
extremes just pointed out. we are
usually wholly without an excuse for
voting for a man of poor qualifications
since it would be strange indeed if,
with the material found it two or
more parties, we may not find men
intelligent and honest and capable.
1 have said this much in view of
the fact that we are confronted with
just such a condition that it behooves
all honest men to look well to their
choice of candidates when they come
to vote at the ensuing election.
I think it is safe for us to act with
the same discretion in these political
affairs that we do in our business
matters, and that we should never
trust a man in ofllee whom we could
not rely upon in our most sacred busi
ness. Think it over seriously, friends, be
fore you go to the polls und see that,
for once in your lives, you are gov
erned by strictly business principles,
and the result will be that we shall
have good men "in otllce, to the great
good of ourselves and neighbors.
It is very natural for men to be par
tisan in debate, but they should not
be. when it comes to the exercise of
the right of franchise a right vouch
safed to us through the blood of our

invited to the dining room to partake
of a sumptuous wedding dinner. The
bride was neatly attired in white and

The foot ball team has been chosen
and the boys are doinir some iood
work. If tliis team holds together
our neighbgring towns can get ready
for some pretty stiff games this fall if
they play us. Ray Palmer is captain.
James Gilliam made the school a
very pleasant and profitable talk Fri
day morning We would be pleased
to have any of the professional or
business men visit our chapel exercises
and give us something of their experi
ence. The Frier Sisters Quintette will be
the first number on the college lecture
course and will be given the 30th of
this month. Secure your season tick
ets before the above date as it will be
too late then and the five lectures will
cost 81 more by the single night.
These singers rank among the very
best on the road and this first num
ber alone will be worth the price of
the entire course.
The Business college and High school
crossed bats again in the ball park
Tuesday evening with Fred Spence in
the box for the college and Carl War
ren for the High school. The nicest
game of the season was the result and
ever' one is well pleased and we all
feel benefited by the good tnatured
playing of the High school and College
boys. The score was 8 in favor of the
High school and 4 in the College's
favor. Mr. Kummer decided the
thing in a professional way. Of
course, the sun shining in his eyes
made him call balls strikes and strikes
balls. Hut the beauty of it all was,
that he kept things even on all sides.
The new class in the Chnrtier short
hand was organized last Tuesday.
This class is going to give the new
system a thorough trial and see it if is
all the author claims for it. His
claims are that a person can learn the
Chartier in weeks, where it takes
months to learn any other system, and
then claims it can be written 25 per
cent faster and read from 200 to 400
per cent faster. Some of the town
people have examined the new system
and are watching its success witli in
terest. One hundred and fifty of the
leading colleges in the east and eight
in Nebraska have adopted the new
system, five of these scliools being in

E. Moranville, a young man from
Kansas City, Missouri, (and other
points) was arrested Hatimlnv.
charged with forging a check oil' Sam
Heaton, who lives south of Inavale,
for 828.24. Moranvllle claimed that
he did not forge the check, but was
trying to get it cashed for an other
party, the nnme of whom he could not
tell. He had destroyed the cheek,
when the officers found him, and was
trying to get out of town. The ex
amining trial of Morauville came on
Monday, and brought out the follow
ing facts. He had tried in several
places in town to get the check cashed,
and offered to discount it. The check
was made by Sain Heaton to J. II.
Itrown, not endorsed by llrown; but
by Morauville. These together with
other suspicious acts was what led to
the arrest of the young man. Mr.
Heaton came on the stand and testi
fied that he did not issue any check
at any time to .1. H. llrown, which
plainly proved forgery, by some one.
Morauville did not go on the witness
stand in his own behalf, and the
court held him to a bond in the sum
of 8.100, which the defendant was un
able to furnish, and Morauville is
now an inmate of Hotel Hedge.
