Henry C. Richmond Fo
Chief Clerk of the House
Henry C. Richmond wants to b
the Chief Clerk of the House thi
coming session of the legislature
Jfc is his first run for office of an ,
kind he says and we believe he i
well qualified for the position h
seeks. Mr. Richardson was form
erly editor of the Fremont Heral
and was second assistant secretar ,
of the democratic national con :
mittee during the past campaign
We believe him to be a man win
is interested in democratic succes
and is capable of working ad vac
tageously for the good of the part ,
and for our people. If he i
chosen for this place he may be o
valuable assistance in guiding tin
destinies of our legislature and ii
keeping their records clean. W
hope that a good man will b
chosen for this place who will b
interested in the welfare of th
greatest purty on earth to brin <
talent and understanding as a safe
guard against evil encroachment
of the enemy who might crippl <
the best of this legislature's worl
and laws by incorrect phraseolog ;
or ambiguous sentences.
Cliff Frank of the York "Tell
er , " in writing of a York womai
and some others who attended :
national "mothers' meeting" ' bad
East , says about two-thirds of the
delegates wore waists buttoned ir
\ , the back. That is very significien
and reminds us of the fanatics whc
think they know. There an
many of them in all 'spheres tha
know best of that which they have
least seen. Some people who nev
er pulled the strings over a horse
think they know best how to drive ,
or who never curried a horse knou
best how he should be treated.
Some persons may be too rougl :
in their treatment of a horse and
deserve some criticism and we
suppose it might as well conic
from those who think they know.
Humanity grows cold and perhaps
can stand a little touching up oc
casionally by those who are hu
mane to the horse while mankind
receives less consideration unless
in hearty accord with their aspira
