Hon. .Edward B. Cowles, who has
been commissioner of public lands
and buildings for the past four years,
has announced his candidacy for re
election subject to the office he has
filled with credit to himself and the
state. , Mr. Cowles during his term
of office has had many questions of
moment to handle and he has shown
in every instance that he was fully
able to cope with them. His friends
are many and they are certain that he
. will succeed himself. This being his

FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER.
John R. Hennett, present republican
county commissioner, is a candidate
for second term to this office. He has
been careful aud attentive to the du-
ties of the office, and it Is asserted by
good men in a position to know that he

age under former administrations.

most faithful public servant.

GRANT G. MARTIN.
Hon. Grant G. Martin, who has been
Deputy Attorney General of Nebraska
for the past four years, under
Attorney General Thompson, has an
nounced his candidacy for the office
of Attorney General, subject to the
action of the voters at the republican
primaries. During his term as de
puty Mr. Martin has become thorough
ly familiar with the work of the office,
and has had a leading part in the im
portant litigation between the state
and the corporations, principally the
railroads in the freight and passenger
rate cases. He has been an invaluable
assistant to Attorney General Thomp
son, and has proved himself i amply
qualified to succeed that popular
official, sir. Martia hag keen a mem-
every part of the state. His know
ledge of the school problems through
his varied experience qualifies him
for the position of state superintend
ent. Mr. Perdue's experience on the com
mittee for life professional eertifl
cates, of which he has been a member
for the last three years, has con
vinced him that the normal courses,
both in the state schools and in the
private and denominational schools,
should be as definite in the quantity
of work required as in the standard
college course. There should, however
be the same flexibility of choice as to
subject matter as exists in the stand
ard college courses. This result
should be brought about gratfually, so
as not to inconvenience seriously the
students who have already enrolled
in the ' various normal schools and
normal departments of colleges. The
course should be formulated by a
united conference of the state super
intendent, the committee for life pro
fessional certificates, and represent
atives of each of the schools offering
the nomal courses. Entrance re
quirements should be clearly defined,
and equivalents so far as possible
worked out, by this conference.

appointment as deputy in "the first
place was due to his acknowledged
ability. The people of Nebraska ex
pect to secure for $2,000 a year an
attorney general who will be able to
cope with the high-salaried attorneys
of the great corporations. Once in
a while they succeed. If they se
lect Mr. Martin for this important
offiee they may well be congratulated,
for Mr. Martin will demonstrate that
he has the ability and energy to meet
the corporation attorneys on their
own ground and give better than an
average account of himself while ser
ving the state well and faithfully.
Mr. Martin's home was in Fremont
prior to his removal to Lincoln, and
his standing as a citizen and as an
attorney in his former city is a safe
index of what he is and no man
stands higher in the estimation of
Fremont people 'than Hon. Grant G.
There have been many attempts in
Lincoln to furnish good first class
eatiing. One establishment in par
ticular that has met this demand,
which is attested by the continues
patronage of the people of Lincoln
is Cummin's restaurant and lunch
room located at 124 North Tenth
street. Well cooked meals, polite
service, good coffee and a desire and
willingness to please has made this
restaurant an ideal place. Every
thing is clean and inviting and his
meals are pronounced the very best.
When you are down town and want
a first class meal do not forget this
place, for you will be sure to be
satisfied both in service and quality
of food served. ' Mr. Cummins is
well known and many are the friends
he numbers among the toilers.
