Week after week the concern up
by the jail lays great stress upon the
fact that C. F. Reavis is a stock
holder in The Tribune, and never In
Its worthless career did It cotne near
er telling the truth.
We are proud to number t hat able
young man among the stockholders
of this publishing corporation, and
prouder still that he belongs by right
of citizenship to this city and county.
Not yet out of his thirties he is
easily at the* head of the legal profes
slon in southern Nebraska and Is
everywhere acknowledged the peer
of the very best in the whole north,
west country. In the short space
between youth and young manhood
he lias climbed higher in the scale
of professional excellence, than most
men do In a whole life time, while
his course is still upward in spite
«f jealousy and the backbiting slander
monger contingent of paid liars, of
which the aforesaid subsidized press
appears to be the prince. You are
right. In thut one particular, Mr. Tax
eater, if wrong, as you generally are,
in all things pertaining to the wel
fare of the public, and the up
building of the city in which you
Mr. Ronvis is asking for nothing
but I lie rights of a private citizen,
and tills uncalled for personal abuse
from a source that is rotten to the
core, hoth in pubh< and private life,
appears far-fetched and of no inter
est to the public.
During the few years of our con
nection with The Tribune we wish to
say for Mr. Reavis, that lie lias never
attempted in any way to influence the
policy of the paper, leaving that
entirely in the hands of the manage
ment. lie lias at our earliest appeal
aided materially in making the pa
per what it is today a newspaper
tliut belongs to no machine or eliipic
and at all times ready to support any
effort toward the betterment of the
conditions in the community of which
U is a part.
Why not compare the home and
public life t>f the mail who delights
to pen this rot against bis neighbor
from week to week, with that of Mr.
Reavis.and let the public judge which
is the most valuable citizenT
’Shall it always be so? Shall the
court house crowd always hold office
Shall the salary list of the county
always go to the same crowd of
men?”—Falls City News, Nov.3, 1905.
The present republican ticket Is
composed of good, clean, Intelligent,
capable men, most of whom
have NEVER held a public office.
Referring to the republican nomi
nees, who were defeated by the
"third term” talk four years ago,
the Falls City News, In their Issue
of N v. 3, 1905, had this to say:
•■While these candidates are per
sonally ve.> p'ea-ant gentlemen, can
you afford to sustain them in the false
and hoggish position they have as
sumed? What assurance have you
that a filth, a s.xin, a seventh and
eighth term will not be the aim of
those now in control? Do your duty
as a citizen and in so doing you will
prove to be the best partisan.”
The question now arises, "what as
surance have you,” Mr. Voter, that
Hutchings, Gagnon, Fenton, Oliver
and the others will not aim for “a
fifth, a sixth, a seventh and eighth
term?" In the News of Nov. 10,
iOO.’i. you were promised that they
would NEVER seek a third term
and that these same candidates then
believed that the third term was
