Earlier in the campaign we pointed out the riece ? sity for a change in the personnel of the county boarc Personally , we know nothing of this road , but many o these men are republicans , and one of them is the rcpitl lican comwifteciinan for that precinct. Tt cannot possibl i be that these men are publishing this for political effect ! They are publishing it becasue they believe it best to hav a change on the county board. They believe it better t put some new blood on the board. It is a fact that whe ; you put a few men in charge of county business and the ; begin to let contracts to their friends , and appoint thei personal friends to office , the public will become dissatis iied and think something is wrong , whether it is or not. i The best way to avoid graft and to retain public con fidcnce is to give each party representation on the board , \Yhen each party is represented there will be more pub licity and the public mil know what is going on. Then is no one running against Mr. Russell in the Second dis trict , but in the Third district Mr. Mone is running against Mr. Bowring. Mr. Morris , the third member o the board was elected last year and has two years yet t < serve. Mr. Russell and Mr. Morris will give the repub licans a majority of the board. If Mr. Mone is elected i will give the democrats one representative , and we be lieve it will be better for the public and more satisfactory all around if the minority is given representation. Remember the whole county votes on this office anc no matter what precinct you are in you can vote for Mr Mone. President Roosevelt Takes a Hand in Our Judicial Districl In this judicial district today there are a lot of ma chine politicians that are working with might and mail- to fool the voters. They are sending out a lot of cam paign trash on the judicial situation and are making frantic appeals to the republican voters to support Doug las and Jenekes , on the plea that the party will be en dangered if Judges Harrington and Westover are re- elected. They are attempting to show the honest re publican voter that if he votes for Judge Harrington and Judge Westoyer he will be committing an act of treason , and , that it will be an act of disloyaiity to President Roosevelt. Let us , see what President Roosevelt and his pre decessor , President McKinley , have done in selecting federal judges , and federal prosecuting attorneys : "When William McKinley was president , elected as he was by the republican party , he appointed federal judges without regard to party affiliation. AVe do not say that he appointed as many democrats as republicans , but what we do say is , that he appointed several demo crats to the federal bench. When he had a judge to ap point , it was the man's qualifications he considered , and when he found a democrat eminently fitted for the bench he never hesitated to appoint him. The mere fact that some republican lawyer was pleading for the place did not deter President McKinley from performing his duty and selecting a judge without regard for his party lable. Since Theodore Roosevelt has been president he has also selected democrats for high official positions , lie has recognized the fact that some men are peculiarly fit ted for judicial work and when he founcT such a man , although he happened to be a democrat , he has called him to the post. On more than one occasion he has appointed democrats to the most important positions. Did he do this because there were no republican lawyers seeking the appointments ? Not at all. He did it be- ? aused he believed the public service was first to be con sidered. He believed his first duty was to the public , and party was only a secondary consideration. Just to men tion a few of his appointments : He appointed Judson Harmon , a democrat , who was attorney general under Cleveland , to investigate the charge of rebating against the railroads. This was five times as great a place as listrict judge , but the president was looking for the best material he could find , and it happened to be a democrat. Me appointed James M. Beck of Philadelphia , a demo crat of national prominence , as a special attorney general. YOien the land frauds in California and Nevada were ex posed and the country was shocked at the revelations that were made , the president looked for a fearless and able lawyer to take charge of the government's interests. Did he select a republican ? Did he say the prosecuting officer must be a republican ? Not a bit of it ! Himself and his attorney general bilked the situation over. They had on hand hundreds of applications from repub lican lawyers. They had applications from men , eminent in their profession and distinguished for their party ser vice , but they were passed over. They said we want a man that is especially fitted for this work and we don't care what ticket he votes , and they sent a telegram to Francis J. Heney of Ban Francisco , and asked him to ac cept the place. Francis J. Heney was , and is , one of the ablest and best known democrats in the T. H. He had opposed the election of President Roosevelt "with all his power , but it was not for personal reasons it was a mat ter of party difference only. Francis J. Heney accepted the place and he has come up to the president's expecta tions. He has justified the president in his selection , and even the most hide-bound partisan must admit that bis selection was a wise one. But just to come nearer borne. . "When laud frauds were discovered in Nebraska , Wyoming and Colorado , the president again found it necessary to appoint a spec ial attorney general to take charge of the work. You might think that inasmuch as he had just appointed Hen- 3y , a democrat , he would now appoint a republican for the other place surely his own party would get one of the places. Did he do it ? Not at all ! He had seen snough of Hency's work to satisfy him that that appoint ment was a good one. He had seen enough to convince liim that in selecting men for these positions he must look to the man and not to the man's politics. He was I < S1 in fact everything- my store goes at three- fourths its value. 3 $ Please note reduction : 4 * 4 ! 4t 4 * 4 ? 4 ? 4 ? 49 49 2 * 49 49 49 49 49 49 49 9 49 412 Everything sold fo spot cash only again besieged by republicans eager for the place , bu1 when the time came to act , he appointed Samuel JR. liusli of Omaha , a well known democrat. Mr. Rush went into office two years ago , and within the last six months he has been promoted by the president. Perhaps you think weMiave wandered from the sub ject and are wondering' what these appointments have to do with the election of judges in this district. These ap- poijitments have just this to do with it : They take the wind out of the sails of the men who are appealing to you to vote against Judge Harrington and Judge Westover because they happen to be democrats. These appoint ments refute the argument of the men who appeal to you to sustain Roosevelt by voting for Douglas and Jenekes. These appointments show that President McKinley and President Roosevelt in filling judicial positions cared nothing for the judge's party affiliation , but. they cared everything for his fitness for the job. These appoint ments show that if President Roosevelt was a voter in the Fifteenth judicial district today he would not cast his ballotjor a district judge without taking into account his experience.and qualifications. That he would first determine which of the candidates would render the most efficient service and he would then cast his vote ac cordingly. These appointments show that he would say to the professional politicians who are appealing to the voters of this district to vote for Douglas and Jenekes in order to sustain the party organization : uDoes Mr. Doug las possess the qualifications for this place ? Is his ex perience such that he will be able to give the public bet ter service than Judge Harrington ? Is his record as a public official such that we can afford to give up the judge who has been tried and true and now experiment with a new man ? " He would answer some of these letters ask ing him to vote against Judge Westover and say : "Who is Mr. Jenekes ? F have not heard of him before. Is Mr. Jenekes a bettor lawyer than Judge Westover ? Has he had as mu h experience as Judge Westover ? What has he done to show that he is able to take Judge West- over's placeton the bench1 When pur friend found himself called on to answer these questions , he would begin to hedge and would ad mit that Judge Westover had a splendid record , as a judge. That his decisions were eminently fair and just , but the paarty organization needs the place. What do you think Roosevelt would say to this kind of an answer to his questions ? Why , he would just reach for the big- stick and as our boss politician took to his heels , Roosevelt velt would shout after him : "Your answers have shown nic that Judge Westover is the man for the place. It is my duty as an American cttizen to ca.-.t my bailer lor him and I am going to perform my duty , and what is best for ine as a citizen will not hurt the party. " Judged by his appointments , there can be no question thatif President Roosevelt had a vote in this district this fall it would be cast for Judge Harrington and Judge Westover.
