Two years ago I asked for your votes
for county clerk promising that I would
give my entire time to the oflico and
give the best possible service I was
elected by a small majority and have
held the oflico since January 9 190S
One of the most bitter fights was
waged against my election but I took
possession of the oflico determined to
treat every man in a like accommodat
ing manner regardless of whether be
supported me or opposed me regardless
of his political affiliation creed or any
thing else I was determined that the
men who fought me the hardest should
receive just as good a service at my
hands as the ones who supported me
It is not for mo to judge if I have suc
ceeded in all of this but it is up to the
voters next Tuesday to say whether I
did well enough to be retained for an
other term My record is the sole issue
I am making for a re election I have
not said and am not saying a word
against my opponent Mr Hofer He is
a gentleman and as far as I am able to
learn he has made a clean campaign
against me
But 1 do want to call your attention
to the dirty and slanderous
some of bis supporters especially the
Red Willow County Standard are mak
ing upon me I have lived in this coun
ty for over twenty years coming here
before I was twelve years of age and
have held the respect of even those who
fought me two years ago It remained
for the editor of the Standard before he
has been here two months to discover
that I was a crook and could not be
The article in his last paper is full of
hidden attacks upon me He says that
the county officers choose to place their
statements upon the county records and
lock them up in a vault where they are
seldom seen My understanding is that
it is the duty of the county officers to
place them on the county records and
also keep them in a safe vault What
does he expect them to do Carry the
records in their pockets or scatter Uiern
out on the streets Another thing the
doors to the county clerks office and to
its vault are open every work day in the
the year from 8 oclock in the morning
to 530 in the afternoon with the excep
tion of the noon hour Three fourths of
of the time they are open at 7 oclock in
the morning The records are here for
public inspection and I have never re
fused to let anyone no matter who it
might have boen to examine the rec
ords and the only time that the editor
of the Standard wanted to kuow any
thing I accommodated him as well as 1
would have my best friend to get all the
information for him that he wanted
He further says that two years ago I
made the promise of economy I did
and I have kept my promise I was as
diligent as possible to order only sup
plies that were actually needed by the
various officers and some of the big rec
ord printing concerns at Omaha have
found out so to their sorrow It was
only at the recent primary that all the
concerns that print poll books and elec
tion supplies engineered a graft on each
county in the state by getting a set of
6 poll books one tally book for each one
of the five parties and one register 6
for each precinct I made a kick on
thi3 seeing n o necessity for having
more than one book for each clerk of
election They entrenched themselves
behind the attorney general and secre
tary of state claiming that those officers
insisted on the form as they prepared it
Instead of submitting I cancelled the
order for this county and ordered spec
ial books made for this county They
made the books as I wanted them 46
books instead of 276 books as they in
sisted and as every other county in the
state used and the books were used in
this county at the primary to the great
satisfaction of the election boards and
at a great saving to this county I have
been just a3 careful in all other purch
ases for the county as far as I had any
thing to do with them and I have re
turned several shipments of inferior
stuff and have refused to O K the
claims for same and they never were al
lowed and paid
The Standard says that the salary of
the deputy was raised 8100 That is the
truth Her salary was raised from 8700
to 8S0O the first of this year and I have
no apologies to make for that If a
competent deputy does not earn 6S0O a
year she does not earn anything at all
If I am rightly informed she gets just
as much a year as the county attorney
and she does a hundred fold as much
work for the money as he does
The Standard further says that now
It is the policy of the First National
Bank to avoid all speculative ventures
and to keep its funds in assets always
readily convertible into cash
that it is noces ary to do some cam
paigning another assistant has been
put on This is a lie and the editor of
Standard knows it is There has been
an assistant in this oflico besides the de
puty for the list six years with the ex
ception of the first two months this
year During a few months each in
1906 and 1907 while my predecessor
held this office the work of the office
required a second assistant makirg
four persons altogether and this second
assistant was no one else thau the follow
who is now making these charges against
me and who claims that ho has the
promise of the deputy ship from my
present opponent George Lellow asso
ciate editor of the Standard The fact
is that the work of the oflico required
that force at that time and does now
and will in the future require 3 persons
to attend to it and keep it up to date
Neither Mr Hofer nor any one else can
run this office with less help than it ib
run at present and if he says that he
can in order to get your votes he is
talking of something which he knows
nothing about
The other assistant has not been put
on because there is campaigning to do
as the Standard says She has been
here all the time since March 1st and
has been busy And I want to say
right here regardless of the Standard
people or anyone else who finds fault
that the two young ladies who are
among the very best to be found in Mc
Cook or anywhere and who are above
the insults of the editor of the Standard
or his associate will if I am re elected
stay right herein their present position
during the next two years
The Standard is further mistaken
when it complains of the expense of
keeping the office help This office is a
fee office and does not cost the county
anything except for work actually done
for the county The fees that the law
allows us up to a certain amount are
all the pay that we get and any amount
above the legal sum is turned over to
the treasurer the first of the year I
paid 836175 to the treasurer last Janu
ary 1st after paying all the office help
If he fees fall short the county does
not pay a cent to make up We are
simply that much short on our salaries
Of course if there would be no assistant
the fees to be turned over would be that
much heavier but did it ever occur to
the Standard that these fees represent
work and a lot of work dono by some
body for nothing The fair minded tax
payer does not expect the servants of
the county to work for nothing and the
commissioners who were elected by the
people of this county should know
better how many people it takes to do
the work in this office than do Smith
The Standard further insinuates that
the poor cuss who pays the taxespays
my campaign expenses This is another
lie My campaign has not cost the tax
payers one cent and will not It is true
I have taken from one to two days a
week for the last six weeks for cam
paigning but I am making up for that
by working here many evenings and
have for the last two years worked hero
many evenings I further want to say
that I pay more taxes in the county in
one year than the editor of the Stand
ard and his associate have paid in their
lives They are not even on the assess
ment list for this year but they are the
self chosen champions of the poor tax
Tho Standard and its editor have a
right to vot9 and work for whom they
please and ask for votes for their men
but they have no rght to tell lies and
make insinuations not in the campaign
nor outside of a campaign about me or
any one else To elect your men to
office simply by running down others
might work all right but it is dirty
politics and you cant make it anything
else no matter how you howl Mr
The voters of this county are too in
telligent to be fooled by these two fel
lows when they make their decision
next Tuesday and I am sure that the
slanders and slurs thrown out the last
minute will be disregarded by the voters
In the 22 months that I have held this
office I have done no official act of
which I am ashamed and of which I
would not have most cheerfully allowed
the editor of the Standard to observe
In conclusion I will say that if re
elected this offce will be run for the
next two years the same as it has been
the last two and every one will be treat
ed accommodatingly and to the best of
my ability and the best interests of the
county will be looked after at all times
