A WORTHY CANDIDATE
FOR COUNTY JUDGE
When a man ha resided in a com

mid respected citizen, lictlve in Its
business, political and social life, hu.
would not lie a bad sort of u man for'
the people to uleiit to a public oillcc

llevc that this Is an opportune time to
Inform you of something which is lay
ing heavily on my mind, I want to
say n word about the brothers that
have come among you today. They
are all good men. They freely give
their time and their services in this
work without salary or pay and I am
sure that you will agree with roc that
they are earnestly devoted to their
ohosen profession. Only one of them
was ever known to backslide and that
was done in your prcseuce this after
noon. Mow these brothers are doing a
wonderful missionary work. They
frequently have scores of people In the
congregation that never darken the
doors of a church building. They are
the only aggregation of the kind
on the continent of America
and they arc deserving of our gener
ous support. It is only fair that we
pay a part of their carfare and hotel
expenses and I theroforo trust that as
the generals pass down the aisles that
vou will each and every one give of
your plenty and If every one drops In
a penny there will be enough and to

He drat became generally known to
the people of this county in connect
ion with the formation of tho Farmer's
Alliance in 181)0 Ho was a man of
strlklug figure, a giant in physique,
and of more than ordinary mental and
moral worth. Had he been a fluent
speaker of English he would easily
have been one of the most influential
men of the county. Of commanding
presence, genial manners, and uncom
promising honesty, he lacked only the
power of facile utterance to compel
He servod tho public as a member of
the board of County Commissioners.
He was the candidate of his party for
county treasurer and also for the legis
lature. Hud ho keen uue. of . the earlier
settlers of the county, his deficiency
in our language would probably have
been overcome and it is difficult to
determine the consideration ho would
have achieved. As it was, he will be
remembered with kindness by all who
knew him, and those who knew him
lest trusted him most. He was burled
from his home Thursday at noon.
Mr. dcrlach was born in Germany,
Feb. 8, 1851. He leaves a wife and
several childreirto mourn his departure.
Mr. A. 1) Itunticy, who Is asking the
people for nomination at the coming
pi Unary for county judge, came, to Ne
braska with his parents and settled in
Oak Creek picciuct of tliih county in
1872 and has been a resident of the
county ever sluce From 1881 to 18S5
he attended schoof at Hastings, and
the two years following he studied law
in the olllce of A. M. Walters of this
place, and In 180 wus admitted to the
kar,jiud since then has been success
fully, pnictlciiig in that profession.
May lt, 189C, he was olected village
clerk and attorney, which position he
has sluce continuously held. In the
fall of that year he was elected county
attorney and two years luter was elect
ed to a seeoud term, serving in an
etllclent manner. In IB'.M! ho was
elected u member of the board of
education of this district and three
years later whs chosen its secretary.
He is still ou tho board as Its secre
tary. These are only a few facts we men
tion to permit you to become acquaint

ho has been doing He does not talk
much about himself or what he has
done; but his friends, who are num
bered by all who hnvo the pleasure of
his acquaintance, will tell you that he

The long expected game between
the Methodists audCongregatlonullsts
drew an interested multitude to the
base ball grounds Tuesday afternoon.
The grandstand and bleachers were
thronged with unaccustomed faces.
The rival churches were out in full
force. Kev. A. A. Crcssman and C. L.
Cotting eamo early uud occupied posi
tions of prominence, where their wav
ing hats and words of cheer would be
most offective for the nine heroes who
battled for Congregational victory.

The Methodists went Hist to bat
Kev. Tompkins picked out a vacnut
spot beyond the center fielder, rubbed
his hands in the dust, and swung his
bat with u vigor like that of Ty Cobb,
Two hundred sighs fell upon thu
summer breeze from tho ladie.i of his
flock. Three mighty strokes had cut
great geshes in the air, but the ball,
instead of soaring Into the distant
cloud, reposed in the catcher's mitt.
l'rof. Morltz extended his long frame
to meet the approaching missile. Had
bis bat been as wide as a tennis rac
quet, there is little doubt that some
time.duringrthe game the ball would
have implgued upon it and rebounded
Into space. ,.
Fred Turnure modest, unassuming
grasped the stick, and tbe ball hit
bin club for a safe one. Fred proved
to be the star hitter for the M. E.'s.
Ed Overlng, arrayed in a jaunty
suit of white and looking bcuigntly
through his spectacles, saw the ball
just In time to hit It one of his sledge
hammer blows. He also saw every
ball thrown to him at second base,
and hold them. He made double plays
worthy of a major loaguer.

times, and hud he uot stopped to

H. C. Wright of Rosemont,
Candidate for Treasurer
To the Voters of the Democratic and
People's Independent Part):
I respectfully solicit jour
support at the coming pilmarles for
election as your candidate for county
clerk. Two years ago when there was
no prospect of defeating Mr. floss for
his second term, at tho requost of
leading anti-republicans, 1 consented
to the use of my noroe as n candidate,
solely to assist in putting a complete
ticket in the Held, and thus making
possible the election of one or more of
your other candidates. 1 believe that
my action then was helpful iu preserv
ing our parties in a vigorous and
efficient condition during the cam
paign, and In keeping them strong
and courageous to contend with some
show of success in the coming election.
While I do not claim that the party
Is under any obligation to me, I yet
feel that I should be given the chance
to engage in a successful contest.
When 1 ran against Mr. Ross two
years ago he was asking for a second
term. I realized it was a hopeless race
but consented to run for the good of
our parties and in order to 1111 out otrr-
ticket. Itoss defeated mo by a small
margin. Having made the race against
Ross when he was askiug for a second
term I think 1 am entitled to imiko
the race against him when hu Is now
asking for a third term in thu face of
strong public (ontiuieut against "third
tenners." (Ikoiiue Haiu:ll.

Henry C. Wright of llosoiuont is
just in the prime of life, 47 years of
age. He came to Webster county ill
1877 aud settled with his people in
Oak Creek township. He has passed
through all tbe hardships of the early
settler and continuously for thirty
four years ho has resided and toiled
in the same township in which he first
landed He passed through many years
of hot winds and hard times on the
farm, but has been a merchant in
Rosemont handling n stock of general
merchandise for a number of years,
and is one of the prosperous business
men of the county. He has hauled
provisions and building material
across from Hastings, and has lived
to see all that vast territory sur
rounding his father's farm transformed
Into modern homes surrounded by fer

To the Democrttic and Peoples Independent Parties of
Webster County, Nebraska:
We the undersigned, residents of the north part of Webster County, Ne
braska, and affiliating with the above parties, believing that if we are to "bc
successful in the coming election, that it is necessary that our ticket be dls-
tributed over the county, and that wc will meet defeat at the polls if our en
tire ticket.is selected from any ouo locality, and believing that two terms of
office arc enougli for auy one to ask, and believing that two terms of office
are enough for any one to usk, and believing that this section of tho county
is entitled to u candidate on our tiokot, wc earnestly requost all members of
the Democratic and Peoples Independent parties to vote for A. I). Han.nuv of
Dluo Hill for our nominee us County Judge. Wc have known A D. Ra.nney
for a number of years, and know that ho Is qualified in every way to HU the
olllce of county judge, nnd believe that if nominated ho will not only be
elected but will carry great strength for the balance of our ticket.
We know that there is a great deal of sentiment in tills county at this
time against "three termers" and against nominating all candidates from one
locality, and for these reasons we ask your support for A. D. Ranney.
