NEARING THE FINISH
Candidates Arc on the Anxious Seat
And Want It Over.
The present campaign has been the
inott exasperating to candidates in the
history of the county. The new pri
mary law has "balled" things up so
that none of the candidates can give
even a guess at how they are going to
come out. Of course the candidates
who are up for re-election have cause
to feel that they will win out, but the
new candidates have no way or esti
mating their strength.
12. II. Overman. candidate for the
Republican nomination for district
judge, lias put up a harder tight than
any of the other local candidate, and
by all rights should have the support
of every Republican voter in Webster
county. Mr. Overman is the equal of
any of the other candidates in legal
learning, is known to everybody, and
he has a record as a campaigner that
would guarantee his election if he
should receive the nomination. In ad
dition to the solid vote of Webster
county, ho will have strong support in
each of the other counties of the dis
trict outside of Adams, where Mr.
lames will hold the main part of the
Votes. It is conceded that Mr. Overman
would be the strongest candidate the
Kepublieuns could, nominate, but the
big vote of Adams county is going to
make the resultiloubtfnl until the votes
are counted For this reason it is the
duty of every Republican in this coun
ty to go to the polls next Tuesday and
assist in nominating Mr. Overman.
In the local contest there is no doubt
of the re-nomination of Sheriff Hedge.
Treasurer Frahin and' Mrs. Caster on
the Republican ticket, while County
Clerk DeTour and Circuit Clerk Hutch
inson will undoubtedly be re-nominated
by the demo-pops. Judge 'Kdson
will not have such an easv time. L. A.
Ilaskins is making a hard tight for
the nomination of county judge, and,
as he has hosts of friends over the
county, he has a chance to snatch eith
er the Populist or Democratic nomina
tion from Judge Kdson. and in that
event it would make things easy for
the Republican nominee, whoever he
It is a "toss-up" between I no 1!. Stun
ser and .1. S. Gilliam as to who will re
ceive the Republican nomination for
county judge. Mr. (iilham is a lawyer
of undoubted ability, anil Mr. Stanser,
while not an attorney, lias a reputation
for fairness and good Judgment.
The four-cornered light for the Re
publican nomination for county cleric
makes that.noiuinntion the most doubt
ful one of all. All the candidates are
well known and honorable citizens of
the county. Hut what is the use of
guessing? None ot us will know who
are tin; successful candidates until the
votes are all counted.

The Woodman Blow-out.
Last night (Friday) the Modern
Woodmen had a great time initiating
new members and holding a general
love-feast. There were delegations
present from Guide Rock, Cowles and
Inavale. and eighteen or twenty new
members were taken into the order.
The exercises opened at (5 o'clock when
the Citizens" band gave a concert on
the street as a preliminary. Another
concert was given at S:!I0. Judge l.W.
Kdson delivered the address of wel
come, which was responded to by 10. E.
Kester of Lincoln. L. P. Albrightalso
delivered a short talk, after which the
Woodmen adjourned to Masonic hall,
where the degree work was given. A
feature of the entertainment was
the supper served by the mothers
of the band boys, from which a neat
sum was realized.
Red Cloud 5. Webber 0.
A ftur-Mt tiering severe defeat at the
hands of the all-Kansas team, at Esbon,
on Thursday, the Red Cloud boys came
home disheartened and were almost
afraid to Jackie the Webber team yes
terday (Friday). However, they buck
led mi their armor and went against
what they thought was a losing prop
osition. The Webber boys were worse
seared than were the Red Clound boys,
however, and as a consequence they
went down with the second shut-out
which they have received froili Red
Cloud. Red Cloud's new catcher, lion
ner, held the Webber boys tight to the
bases and twice when they were near
scoring he caught them, licuuct pitch
ed his usual strong game and received
gilt-edge support at critical times.
The features of the game were I trad
