THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES.

out Reftrettlnft It Afterward.
Next Tuesday, November (1, is elec
tion day, and as the time approaches
the indications point more strongly to
a Republican victory. The fusionists
have been making a great howl about
the Republicans not having raised the
railroad assessment as they promised.
The records show that during four
years of Populist rule tlio assessed
valuation of railroad property in the
state was raised a little more than
$900,001), while during the six years of
.Republican rule the railroad valua
tion was raised more than '.'(5,000,000.
These ligures are a matter of record
and can easily be verified by anybody.
The fact that the railroad inturests
are supporting the fusion candidates,
even down to county attorney, is an
other evidence that they are afraid of
Attorney General Norris llrown, who
received the Republican indorsement
for United States senator, is one of
the allies' men who has ever occupied
the attorney general's otlice. He is
an enthusiastic supporter of President
.Roosevelt's policy and has earnestly
and continually fought the trusts
during his term as attorney general.
While he can hardly be spared from
the attorney general's otlice, he is de
serving of the high honor to which he

State. Senator George L. Sheldon,
Republican nominee for governor, is a
comparatively young man and was
one of the brightest members of the
last legislature. Mr. Sheldon is an
advocate of laws that will put tho
railroads out of politics, but not out
of business. His nomination was the
result of an aroused public sentiment
in favor of a square deal for both the
railroads and the people, and his elec
tion will materially aid in the enact
ment and enforcement of the legisla
tion needed to control tho railroads
and trusts which have so long fatten
ed at tho expense of tho producers.
Of the other candidates on the state
ticket but little needs to bo said. II.
J. Winnott, Robert Cowell and A. J.
Williams, the nominees for railway
commissioners, are men selected for
legal ability as well as their knowl
edge of railway aiTairs, and the en
forcement of the laws to control the
railways will be safe in their hands.
George Junkin of Gosper county,
nominated to succeed Al Galusha as
secretary of state, was chosen because
of his opposition to the pass evil. He

E. M. Searle, for auditor; Jasper L.
McRrion, for state superintendent, and
Henry M. Eaton, for commissioner of
public lands, stood on their records
for the past two years and were re
nominated without opposition.
For state treasurer, Lawson G . Hrioii
of Itoonu county was nominated to
succeed Peter Morteiiscn.
William T. Thompson, candidate fir
attorney general, has been the clll
cient assistant- of Attorney General
Rrown during the past two years and
has the work of the olllce well in

Hon. George W. Norris, renominated
for congressman, has made a record of
which all true Republicans are proud.
He is serving his second term, and his
experience and knowledge of national
affairs makes him a very useful mem
ber of the national house. He stands
high with the administration, and has
served on several of the most import
ant committees. What little opposi
tion there is to Air. Norris comes from
disappointed olliceseekers and parties
who failed to "bleed" him.

W. E. Thorne, nominee for state
senator for the district composed of
Nuckolls, Webster and Franklin coun
ties, is one of the best known farmers
living in tho northwest part of this

been more or less interested in poli
tics, ho has devoted tho principal part
of his time to stock-raising and farm

W. F. Ronkel of Inavale, nominee
for representative, is one of tho best
known farmers and stock raisers in
the western part of the county. If
Mr. Renkel is elected, and he undoubt

One of the hardest fights in the
present campaign has been made
against Dr. R. F. Raines, or rather for
Charley Resse, on the part of the fu
sionists. Dr. Raines, while having re
sided in this county but a ltttle more
than four years, has built up for him
self an extensive medical practice and
earned the esteem and confidence of
all who know him. His large ac
quainOiucc throughout the county
makes him a very strong candidate,
and, as he is in full sympathy with
the policies of President Roosevelt
and George Ij. Sheldon, every Repub
lican should give him hearty support.

W. R. Anderson, renominated for
county commissioner for the Second
district, is standing upon his record.
He has given valuable service to the
county during his membership on the
board, and probably knows more- about
the county's business than any other
member of tho board. Under tho new
law the voters of the entire county
vote on commissioner, so don't forget
to put an "X" after Mr. Anderson's

THE QUESTION IS:
Shall Webster County Be Represented
by Its Own Attorney, or by tho
Attorney for the Burlington Rail
The Argus In Its issue of last weelc
made a bold attempt to mislead the
voters and taxpayers in the matter of
the county attorneyship. Among other
things the Argus says: "Mr. Walters
has issued a little folder calling atten
tion lo the maimer in which he has
discharged the duties of his olllce.
Having thus challenged criticism, it is
only fair to make such answer as the
Can Mr. Rlackledge stand criticism
in this race for county attorney? Can
he explain how he is going to repre
sent both the taxpayers of this county
and the Rurliugton railroad in the tax
case now pending in the federal
Can he explain how he is going to
represent both Webster county and
Pettibone & Nixon in the case now
pending in the supreme court between
Pettibone A- Nixon and Webster coun
ty? Can he explain how lie is going to
represent both Webster county and
the First National Hank of Rlue Hill
in the case now pending in the su-1
preme court between that bank and
I the county?
Mr. Rlackledge deserves to be criti
cized for attempting to be elected
county attorney of this county with
these eases pending and to be tried
and settled sometime next year, and
in all of which he represents interests
adverse to the county.
The Pettibone fc Nixon ease men
tioned in the Argus is a case where a
llrm of tax sharlrs located in Iowa
bought town prbperty at u tax sale in
this county and then through some
blunder lost out in the collection of
their lien, and they are now attempt
ing to compel this countytoreimbur.se
them to the amount of SI, 800. Mr.
Walters tried this ease in the district
court. Judge Adams decided in favor
of the county, and Pettibone fc Nixon
through their attorney, Mr. Itlack
ledge, have appealed the case to the
supreme court. If Mr. Rlackledge is
elected county attorney he will then
represent both sides, and of course the
county will win maybe.
The Rlue Hill bank case is a case
where the First National Rank of Rlue
Hill is attempting to evade the pay
ment of Its just taxes. The board of
equalization raised the assessment of
the bank, and the bank is now eon
testing tlie matter in the courts, and
Mr. Rlackledge is the attorney for the
bank in this case. This bank, with a
capital stock of 50,000 and surplus
and undivided profits of 1.1,000, had
the nerve to return to the assessor an
assessment of less than .10,000, and
then objected and contested the. :'gllt
of the board to raise it. This case is
still pending in the courts, and of
course If Mr. Rlackledge Is elected
county attorney he will then bo rep
resenting both sides of the case and
the haul; will no doubt have to pay
the taxes on this :i,'),000 "nit."
The Argus says: "A local railway
lawyer receives no salary from the
company, and probably in the course
of a year, his earnings from the com
pany will not reach 50. He is not
expecfed to try the important cases
for the company, but only such niat-
j ters as do not justify the appearance
of Mr. Morlau or Mr. Deweese. AVe
have no doubt that Mr. Rlackledge
will resign his position as railway at
torney as soon as he is elected attor
ney for the county."
We agree with the Argus that the
local attorney for the railroad com
pany receives no salary from the com
pany, but he docs receive a pass, and
for the pass ho Is supposed to look
after the Interests of the company.
If Mr. Rlackledge should be elected
county attorney, the Argus says he
will accept the retainer of 800 a year
from the county and give up tho re
tainer of u pass from the railroad
company. We presume if ho is elect
ed, the railroad company will insist
ou him giving up his pass and doing
all he can for the county in the cele
brated tax cafe.

Almost every day some one speaks
of starting to college next term, which
begins Nov. I'J. Our school promises
to more than double at that time.
Mr. Dietrich has two entertainments
on hand for this week. One at district

one at district No. .V,', northwest of
Red Cloud for Saturday night.
Prof. Dietrich gave, with the help ol

In the Ash Creek church, a very pleas
ing entertainment Thursday, evening.
Miss Rrown, who was the teacher had
put much work on the pupils and they
all did line. The school charged 10
and 15 cents admission, but the house
was crowded to the doors.
Prof. Dietrich was up at Inavale Fri
day evening and gave a free recital at
the M. E. church there. It was under
the direction of the school of which
Miss Householder is teacher. He had
a very appreciative audience and a
good audience considering the sudden
change in the weather. Mr. Watson
went with him.
Dr. E. A. Thomas and Prof. Dietrich
made a trip to Rosemont Sunday to
tuhe part in a Sunday school conven- .
tlon program. When on their way
home they stopped for supper at the
home of Glen Arnold, who Is attending
the college. Those people of Rose
mont know how to entertain folks
right and they also know how to fill a
house at a Sunday school convention.
The management of the College Lec
ture Course wishs to thank those who
so kindly tried to be there on time for
the opening number Tuesday night.

In late we are not only disturbing the

actually taking time that others have
paid for and for which you have no

work, made their plans for our com
fort and we ought to think enough ol
ourselves and our neighbors to not dis
turb them after the program has begun.

The Trier Sister's Quintette, the first
number on the College Lecture Course,
appeared at the Opera House Tuesday
' evening, and gave what we think one
of the nicest, up-to-date,good entertain
ments we have ever heard. They did.
not need to drop from the very best of
high class music to hold their audience,
Fach of the sisters could entertain us
for the evening alone. The Midland
Jubilee Singers may have drawn ;i
larger audience but they could not
have drawn a better one as the sister

one of the best and most appreciative
they have met with.
