Judge Dean The Fusion Candlate
Judge Dean fusion camhate for
Supreme Court is receiving com
plimentary notices over the state
for the able record he has made
on the beench. He is the dem-
oratic member of thr. court that
was appointed by G ernor Sheldon -
, don from Broken Bo a year ago
and the citizens of ( ater county
regardless of politibias take
pride in the fact tat he has
been able to make good. ' His
> own church people egardless of
.poitics are warmly supporting
him aslwas evidenced at thelPres-
bytcrian Synod held at Minden
last week. It is reported that
when he entered the church from
Broken Bow he waa given an en
thusiastic ovation bv the assembly
that lasted five minutes , The
Republican takes no stock in the
nou-partison Judiciary , being ad
vocating in some quarters as men
will carry their personal views on
the bench as well as elsewhere
and the greatest care should be
exercized in selecting Judges
safe on all questions. Yet it
always has been the case where a
candiadate for any high office
stands well in his own commun
ity his friends more or less com
pliraent him with their support re
gardless of party affiliations and
douMlesa Hie vote for Judge
Dean in CUMer County will be no
exception * notwithstanding the
fact that such a custom is tnOre
or less demoralizing politically.
In spejnliug of Judge Dean's
Henry C. Richmond ot Lincoln
says "In discussing the Supreme
Judgcship that President Taft's
recent reference to the danger of
sectionalism applies most strik
ingly to one phase of fhc present
campaign in which Judge J. R.
Dean of Broken Bow is the only
In the entire history of Ne
braska only one supreme judge
ever c nie. from west of the 99th
meridian , At present the court
is divided into congressional
districts , with three members
from the first district having a
total vote of 37,000 , one from the
second with 30,000 , one from the
third with 52,000 , one from the
fourth with 45,000 , none from
the fifth with 42,000 , , one from
th sixth with 51,000.
Only by the election of Judge
Dean will the western part of
the state have a representation
on the supreme bench. Politics
aside , he is the only western
candidate on any ticket. No
surprise at the demand that more
than 90,000 in the fifth and sixth
districts should have representa
tion in th.e supreme court.
Judge Dean's candidacy is sur
prisingly popular. He is a

13. L. Nicholas , the well-known
Elk Creek township farmer , call
ed at the Transcript office last
Saturday , and while here iuci-
dently remarked that the talk
about the great inconvenience of
living a long distance from the
county sdat and the extra expense
caused by such a condition when
you had to go to the county seat ,
was not worrying him much and
he waa in no way particularly
inconvenienced by it.
Mr. Nichalos is a large land
owner and stockman and a man
of large business affairs. Ue
represented this district on the
county board at different times.
Mr. Nicholas has found it neces
sary to go to Broken Bow once
in 5 or 6 years and was then
called as a juror. A better argu
ment than long distance
have to be advanced before Mr.
Nicholas is caught on the divi
sion hook. Mason City Trans
A Division "Whooper" '
Our division friends are get
ting desperate , and in their
efforts to bolster up their wan
ning fight to divide the county
and disrupt business affairs , they
arc getting down to pure un
adultrated lying ,
For instance this clipping fron
the Mason City items in the
Ansley Argosy :
"P. M. Marley , the largest tax
payer in Algernon township , is
for county division. "
The only truth in the above
statement is that Mr. Marley is
the "largest taxpayer in Alger
non township" . He is also one
of the largest land owners in
Custer county , having thousands
of acres scattered all over the
Mr. Marley brands the state
ment that he is in favor of county
division as a lie , pure and
If Mr. Marlej were actuated
by sinster motives and personal
financial gain , he would doubt
less be in favor of division. But
that good business judgement
that has placed Mr. Marley
among the leading , conservative
business men of Nebraska , has
not deserted him at this time ,
and of course he is opposed to
It is safe to add in conclusion
that as our division friends have
misrepresented in this particular ,
they have misrepresented and dis
torted facts in many other state
ment. Mason City Transcript.
In casting your vote for coun
ty treasurer do not forget that
the republican candidate is a
poor man and needs the ofiice
while upon the other bane
Clarence Mackey , the democratic
candidate of Ansley is a banker ,
who has grown rich in Custer
county in his business who does ,
not need the salary.
The voters of Custer county
have a chance in voting for coun
tv treasurer to show wether they
will do honor to a worthy ca
pable man of experience who
needs the office or whether they
prefer a rich banker without ex
perience and who has uo'nnud for
the salary of the office.
for County Treasurer.
Repling to the unwarntcd
attact of Brother Beal on the
business ability of W. B. Poor
we must say , that while it is
true that Mr. Poor has held
second place in the Treasures
office for a number of years , it is
a well known fact that he has
practically had charge of the
affairs of the office much of the
time. And it is also a matter of
record , that at all time while Mr.
Jeer has been in the office as
deputy the business has been
run on an economical basis and
itgfhly satisfactory to the County.
The voters of Custer county are
too well acquainted with the
qualifications of Mr. Poor to be
olluenced by the slush of the
3eacon when casting their ballots
'or county Treasurer.
D , M , Atnsberry , who for the
past two years has been out of
the newspaper business , again
assumed editorial charge of the
Custer County Republican last
week. Air. Amsberry 'is one of
the old editorial wheel-horses of
Custer county , t and his many
friends will be glad to know that
he is again in the harness.

The Mondell Homestead Lands ,
We are receiving1 thousands of inquiries about the 320
acre free homestead lands available for settlers under the
Mondell Act. These lands are located in Eastern Colorado
and in Wyoming- along the Burlington. The great advant
age of tliis new homestead law is that the sttler is permitted
to take up free , 820 acres instead of 1GO acres , the larger
tract being-required under the new dry farming methods , '
Northeastern Wyoming has from 1C to 21 inches of moisture ,
and has produced some of the finest crops of small grains
ever seen in the west.
I personally conduct excursions on the first and third
Tuesday of each month to these lands , Write me for
special descriptive folders , literature , etc. \
