A PROMINENT REPUBLICAN SPEAKS.
The republicans in the Fifteenth Judicial district have placed in
nomination for judges Allen G. Fisher , of Chadron , and W. T. Wills ,
of Butte. It seems to have been a scheme of Fisher's to get a weak
man on the ticket in order that he might be traded off to advantage.
Fisher is a politician , and will leave no stone unturned to secure his
own election. The only hope for a continuance of judicial fairness in
that district is that the people are well enough acquainted with Mr.
Fisher and his methods to bury him so deep he will not know what
hit him. Personally Mr. Fisher is a pleasant gentlemen to meet and
is a personal friend of the writer , but we cannot support him although
a voter in that district. Niobrara Tribune ( Rep. ) Sept. 3.
The foregoing article is copied from the "Iftobrara Tribune" a
strong republican newspaper published at Niobrara. Editor Kendall
is a legal voter and residerit of Boyd county. He is a life long repub
lican , but he knows as The Independent has known for some time that
Mr. Fisher was nominated in the railroad interest , and Mr. Wills was
nominated only for the purpose of trying to trade him oft' in Fisher's
interest. Long before the republican convention The Independent had
inside information but of a confidential character that Mr. Dickson did
not intend to be a candidate for the reason that he well knew he could
not be elected ; but in the interest of the railroad he is attorney for he
would try to get the Holt county delegation made up of his friends on
the claim that he might be a candidate and then lie would deliver them
to Fisher. It was well known to Mr. Dickson that Fisher could not
get the delegation from Holt county on his own merits : Mr. Fisher
very well understood this likewise. There are some republicans in
Holt county who personally know Mr. Fisher and there are others
who knew that he has knifed Judge Kinkaid at every opportunity for
the last fifteen years. These men would have made short work of
Fisher's candidacy in the republican county convention if it was ever
admitted that the delegation should be delivered to him. Mr. Dickson
picked the committee that selected the delegates and he selected the
delegates and he selected only those that he could deliver to Fisher.
An examination of the list of delegates so selected show that they were
people who were either under railroad control or under the control of
Mr. Dickson. Some of them are persons who stuck the knife into
Judge Kinkaid just as industriously as Fisher has done. O'Neill In
