on Congressman Norris. The reason
for this is very plain to those who
have had tho opportunity of reading
tin correspondence which passed be
tween tho editor of the Coin-Ad and
Congressman Norris during the cam

tho matter is tliat Mr. Norrls refused

The question is, Shall the people of
this county intrust this matter to A.
M. Walters, the present county attor
ney, or to L. If. Illucklcdgc, the local
attorney for the llurlington railroad?
Mr. Illucklcdgc has already assisted
the railroad in this county in getting
affidavits as to the value of farm lands
in the county, and also distributed lit
erature in defense of the company in
this matter. The position of local at
torney for the railroad company car
ries with it a pass, nothing more. No
salary is paid, and no lawsuits are
tried for the rompany by the local
attorney. His business is to gather
evidence for the trial. Mr. Morlan of
McCook tries the eases.
If Mr. Illackledge should happen to
be elected county attorney, which side
would he gather evidence for in this
tax case, the llurlington Railroad
Company, whose pass he has already
accepted for this service, or Webs' er
He cannot serve two clients in the

Railroad company. Mr. Walters, if
for no other reason than the condition
of this tax case, should be elected by
an overwhelming majority.
