There has been about CMO in fines alone collected Trom these cases for he county
and costs or about 475.00. besides'these fines and costs some defendants have been
sentenced and in others fines were imposed and-laid out. Some defendants were paroled.
These fines collected for the county greatly exceed all other costs paid out by the
county in all other prosecutions. Thus making the oilice more than self sustaining in
the matter of prosecutions. ,
Since the new prohibition law went into effect on May 1. 1917 I have prosecuted
27 cases for bootlegging, possession of liquor and drunkenness. Ot these il cases in
every cose that came to hearing the defendant was fined. In a few cases the line was
suspended by the court. In these cases there were 5610.00 in lines alone collected be
sides costs. "

fit to make a personal allusion to my candidacy in letters recently mailed over the

To the Voters of Webster County
I Owing to my duties as Deputy County Clerk and
? the large amount oJ Government "or War" work
that has necessarily been added 1 o my other duties,
, I have been unable to make a personal campaign
lor the office of County Treasurer, for which office,
I am the Democratic Candidate. I sincerely apprc
v ciate all favors that have been shown mc,x and if
4 elected to the office o County Treasurer will de
li vote my whole time and energy to the faithful per
E formance of the duties of the office.
h I have had the necessary training to qualify me
I to take charge o this office and by your vote hope
J to be able to attain the goal.
Thanking you in advance for your favorable vote,
I remain sincerely yours,
I am writing you as I will probably not get an opportunity to
see you personally.
I have served only one two-year term as your Sheriff and I am
now asking you to re-elect me believing that I am deserving of a
second term.
I have carefully carried out the law, as you elected me to do,
and have without fear or favor run down gamblers and bootleggers.
The office has been run with as little expense as possible the
last two years, and Ishall have no extra claim against the county
when my term of office expires.
My wife and I have licved in Vebster county 35 years and we have
raised a family of 10 children. We have one son who is now in the
United States Naval Service.
The office of Sheriff has had many important duties the last
two vears and I have Derformed them as .lustlv as I knew how.
The office of Sheriff is an important one and the duties demand
honest and fair dealings of the sheriff.
Hoping that I may have your support on November 5th, I am
Yours Respectfully, FRANK HUFFER.

lack of deep appieeialion for assis

"If Y2id goes forth thnt tho people
of the United States are standing
solidly behind tho president ths-task
of the peace commissioners will be

timate tho supremo importance of
