N. T. GADD'S ANNOUNCEMENT
FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY.
Having filed with the proper ofilcer. I
now announce myself a candidate for the
ottlce of county Attorney subject to the ap
proval of the republican party at thel'rlmary
election to be held August. lOtli , 1910.
It Is perhaps needless for me to say ; I
am unalterably ntfolnst the Liquor Inter ,
csts , 1 am lor county option , tor state and
nation wide prohibition.
I am a republican , but am most emphat
ically for the revision of theTarlff downward
and for the removal of tariff upon things
essentially necessary to the comfort , health ,
Happiness and prosperity of the citizen.
My present term 01 onice'does not expire
until January 1911 , my time and ability there
fore Is the property of the citizens of the
county , of all political complexion ; that be.
ing true I WILL NOT MAKE A CANVASS.
I have not been absent from any mcrtlng of
the board of supervisors have been on hand
at all times when called upon by county
onicers from the least to the highest , Includ
ing Township ana School district oinccrs ;
When needed by the private citizen , either
over the Phone , or In person I have been on
hand by day or night , and this I will have to
say at the end of my term of otllce regardless
of the results of the primary election ; if you
need the county attorney , you will tlnd film
ot his ofllce , not out In campaign , using your
time to further his personal Interests. If
absent , it will be because of business , and In
that event , there will be a competent lawyer
In chatgc of the onicc.
I am human , and no doubt have made
mistakes during my term of otllce. but I have
no excuses to offer neither any appologlcs to
make ; I have sought to discharge duty to
the best of my ability from mv view point ,
this I will continue to do ; I will thank you
for your consideration and will appreciate
Respectfully Yours ,

ANDERSON FOR SUPERVISOR.
Having uled as a candidate for Supervisor
ot the third supervisor district subject to the
will of the republican primary. I will ap
preciate your support. If nominated and
elected I will use my best efforts for the ad
vancement of the best Interests of the dis
trict and the county In general.
AIYERS FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY.

EDWIN P. MTBUS.
FOR STATE SENATOR.
I decided to again be a candi
date for the nomination for Sen
ator to represent the Fifteenth
district , embracing Custer , Val
ley , Elaine and Loup counties.
I have illed aa a democrat and I
icoplcs' independent candidate
and respectfully urge the voters
to investigate my record as a
member of the legislature during
the last session. I shall appreci
ate your support if I may seem
to you to merit it.
J. A. Ollis , Ord , Nebr.
FRANK C. BCHMAN.
Candidate for Congress.
Inm a candidate for the republican
lominntiou for Congress from the sixth
llstrict. I believe in good government ,
n square deal and that the Roosevelt
policies should l > e put into operation. I
have always been opposed to boss rule
and machine politics. I believe in repre
sentative government , in government by
the people and not by corporations. J
believe in loyalty to republican princi
ples and the protective tariff but do not
believe that downward revision has been
fully accomplished ; particularly with
with reference to the woolen , cotton ,
lumber and wire schedules.
I believe a congressman should have
convictions and courage enough to vote
them ; that he should not dodge , side
step and vote "present ; " that he should
not insurge at home and stand pat in
Washington , That he should keep his
ante-election promises and vote against
Mr. Cannon for speaker after having
promised the people to do so ; and he
should not vote to tax barbed wire at
$15,00 per ton after publicly announcing
that it should be placed to free list.
A congressman is elected by the public
and puid by the public to serve the
public and not to serve himself. He
should be satisfied to retider public ser
vice for the public salaty and not seek to
further enrich himself at the expense of
the public by acquiring coal lands in
Alaska belonging to the public domain.
His duty is to conserve the public re
sources and not to absorb them unto
limself and Mr. Ballinger's ttssistaucc in
acquiring a coal claim in Alaska is not
sufficient proof of either regularity or
ethics of the tiansactiou.
The success of the would he
insurgent congressional candi
dates that have tried out their
luck for this campaign docs not
afford very large chances of cons -
s 'lations for those whose pri
maries are yet to held.
The person whose only ambi
tion is to work for reward often
fails in the realizations of the
object of 'iis ' quest. So the can
didate for office who seeks to
succeed over his competition by
making pledges that he may
be looked upon as a failure for
his lack of a higher motive.
The beastly native in the
human family was not only
manifested in the crowd that
congregated at Kr.no , Nev. , July ,
4th to witness the fight between
Johnson and Jcfferies but a large
per cent of the public who bet on
the result and those who so
anxiously waited for the first
news of result. Not until civili
zation is more genuinely Christ
oimzed will mankind be raised
to a higher level. It is a matter
of note that the commonwealth
of the Union there was but one
state that would admit the fight
within its borders. Of all the
barren and most desolate state
of the Union are the plans of
Nevada yet worse , is the lack of
Godliness of her rulers who en
couraged and admit of such de
What Senator Has Done-
Senator Burkett comes home
feeling well satisfied with his
work during the past session ,
lie is greatly pleased over the
much good [ legislation that has
Icon enacted , and says that
during his twelve years in Con
gress there has never been a
session when so much good pro
gressive legislation has been
passed as at the one just closing.
In addition to the general public
legislation he says there has
never been a session when he was
ailed upon for so much special
