by the Men Who Know Him
Osccola. Neb. , October 20 , 1902.
Around the public nqtmro In Osccola ,
the llttlo red brick courthouse
In the center , there Is a lot of
Tjuoy men , who , In their thrift and en-
* Tgy , seem very much \n \ harmony with
Ihf llfo and character of John H.
Mickey , republican candidate for gov
ernor , whoso homo IB out there on a
farm right up against the suburbs of
the town. Mr. Mickey commenced
here when thq town commenced. Ho
wan hero when It was born. He built
the first dwelling house that was hult |
in Osccola , and has lived hero ever
With a strong body and a clear
: "hraln , ho was equipped for a trcmon-
"dous amount of work , and when the
lotplo of Polk county look back for
Iwenty-nve years and realize what has
. l > ecn accomplished In the upbuilding
of this community , they can sec every
where the helpful influence of John
Ittlckey , whose courage never failed and
wLose energy never relaxed.
"Look around here , " said the hotel
'keeper , the flist man you meet In Osco-
ola , "Look around bore , and what-
cver you see that's good , John Mlckoy
ban been in It right from the start , and
bos helped more than any other man
to make 1ft what It Is. If Mr. Mickey
Is elected governor , the people will
find him the most practical man they
' ever put Into that office. "
The history of John Mickey Is the
history of the beginning of things In
this county. Ho made the first homo-
etead entry that was made In the
United States land office at Lincoln.
He was one of the first two settlers In
the county. He helped to organize the
county and was Us first treasurer ,
serving continuously for ten years.
He was the first assessor In the < ounty.
He helped to organize the first school
district , district No. 1 , and was its
first treasurer. He was one of the orJ
ganlzers of the first church society in
the county. In a good many of these
enterprises Mr. Mickey seems to have
been not only one of the organizers ,
tut the one who thought out and
worked out the proposition from the
beginning. Mr. Mickey started the first
bank in the county and Is still Its presi
dent He was one of the organizers
of the County Fair association. Ho
has given the use of the grounds which
this association has occupied during
the last twenty years , and was one"of
the chief contributors toward the erec
tion of the buildings which the asso-
elation has used. He contributed $5,000
to the ? 12,000 Methodist church here.
Although an ardent Methodist , he was
broader than that , and his liberal con
tributions have gone Into nearly every
church structure In the county. It is
given out here on the best authority
that his church and school donations
In the last ten years amount to over
, $20,000. This item , when it is con
sidered that Mr. Mickey is not particu
larly wealthy over many others who
are well-to-do In this county , shows
something of the chief characteristics
of the r ; j to put himself and a part of
what hf ' as accumulated into what
ever is good for the people.
Mr. Mickey was one of the or
ganizers of the town of Osceola. The
"World-Herald has charged that the
town was located on a tract of railroad
land through his manipulation , but the
facts aa that it Is situated on section
16 , which is school land. On the school
board for many years , his influence has
been potent for everything that was
most progressive and practical In edu
cation. Mr. Mickey was one of the or
ganizers of the first O. A. R. post in
this county. His tender regard for
this organization aud his helpfulness
to the old comrades brings from these
old soldiers , as will appear later , many
Icind expressions toward him , and some
f'\S that are not so kind toward the World-
Herald , whose representative , writing
from here recently , tried to show that
Mr. Mickey had been neglectful as a
member of the G. A. R. to the interests
of that order. His attention to all
the ceremonies of the G. A. R. and his
many kind acts toward needy veterans
has been recognized by the post hero
at Osceola , and for many years ho has
been the one chosen to stand at the
bead of the grave when the old soldier
wao being lowered Into his final resting
"He knows the ceremony by heart , "
eald Judge SaundcnJ , a prominent" -
, eran of Osceola , "and we always know
that we can depend on him. He is al
ways ready to do whatever there la to
do , no matter how difficult or how
easy the task. If anyone is sick , Mr.
Mickey is one of th first to flnd It
out , and If you take pains to Inquire
you will flnd that his assistance is al
ways practical. "
' Up to the time that Mr. Mickey was
named as the republican candidate for
governor , his high standing among the
people of his own county had never
' been questioned. Ho had been hero
over thirty years , a very busy man ,
having more or le a to do with nearly
everything that was going on , and hla
clean llfo and high character stood
out conspicuously among the people ot
Polk county. It was those thirty years' '
of life In Polk county , and what they ]
had been , that singled him out and
made him attractive to republicans all
over the state. When ho was finally1
nominated , this thing , hid llfo In Polki
county , was the most attractive feature - '
turo of his public personality. To
break down n much as possible this
part of hla strength as a candidate , the
World-Herald sent a representative
hero who traveled over the county for
several days , finally publishing In the
World-Herald what purported to bo In- ]
torvlows from nlnn alleged republicans
who would not support Mr. Mickey , j
As a sample of the World-IIorald'sj
reckless work In Its efforts to Injure ,
Mr. Mickey , the following statement
from George W. Dcobo , a Polk county
farmer , and one of the men whom the !
WorldHerald"pretended to Interview !
against Mr. Mickey , speaks for Itself. '
This la what Mr. Dcebc says In a signed
statement : |
"I never saw the World-Herald re-1
porter when he was here , nor at any ,
other time. I never gave out any In
terview or made any statement to tho.
World-Horald , or any other newspa
per. I was surprised and Indignant
when I heard that my name was In the
paper. I have been a republican here ,
through all these years , when 1 was
the only republican In my neighbor
hood. I have been to town several
times this season trying to hire men
to help mo at my farm work , but people
ple are so busy that it Is Impossible to
get help. If I want men to be Idle and
help to be plenty , I would vote the
democratic ticket. I Intend to vote for
John Mickey. I want to see him elect
ed and I believe ho will be. I think
the the World-Her
course pursued by -
ald In misrepresenting people here will
Increase the majority for the repub
lican ticket In this county. ( Signed , )
"G. W. T1EEBE. "
Mr. Beebe , In conversation with re
publican friends , said some things that
were a little too hot to print.
Now let us take the business men
around the public square hero In Os
ceola and see what they say of Mr.
"You may commence with me , " said
Mr. Pratt , the hotel man. "Put it
down for me that I have known John
Mickey a long time and I have known
him well. He Is as straight as a die ,
and one of the most competent men I
ever know Now , go Into the drug
store next door and then go right
around the square and see what the
others say. "
D. H. Kunklo , druggist : "I have
known Mr. Mickey twenty-eight years.
He is as prompt as a clock In every
thing , and keeps his work right to the
letter. Mickey is a very thorough
man. Ho works hard. He has made
lots of money and he has given lots of
It away. He ho helped things along
here ever since the town started. If ho
Is elected he will be governor. They
can't monkey with him. The Inter
views that went out from here through
the World-Herald didn't hurt Mickey
In this drug store was Mr. G. W.
Gregg , a nurseryman. He said : "I
have been living right along side of
Mr. Mickey for eighteen years. I have
had thousands of dollars worth of
business with him. He Is very thor
ough in his business methods. He
makes everybody come right up to the
scratch if they can. But if a man is
in trouble and Is honest he can always
find a friend in Mr. Mickey. I have
been in the G. A. R. post with Mickey
for twenty years. He is the most ac
tive and best all around worker In the
post. He has brri rw re rommander
of our post here and has been its most
liberal and helpful member. I hope
he will be elected. "
H. A. Scott , general store : "I have
been here twenty-three years. I have
known Mickey all the time. He Is as
honest as a man can be. The reporter
of the World-Herald , who was hero
recently , misrepresented him entirely.
It makes the people Indignant. That's
no way to treat a decent man. It will
make Mr. Mickey a lot of votes that
ho would not otherwise have got in
this county. He has been a good citi
zen here. We think he will be a good
Q. W. West , merchant : "I have been
doing business with Mr. Mickey for
twenty-three years. We do not agree
politically , but I am bound to bo fair
with him now. He is a clean , high-
minded man. Mr. Thompson , the fu
sion candidate for governor , is a per
sonal friend of mine and a good man.
I am not trying to help elect Mr.
Mickey , but I will not mlnrepresent
him. He's square. He will do Just
what he agrees to do , and ho will do It
James Mathews , dry goods : "I have
known John Mickey twenty-six years.
Ho attends to his business. Ho never
gossips nor meddles. Ho does lots of
good as a citizen. The Interviews of
the World-Herald did not hurt him In
thla county. "
L. W. Gurshco , merchant : "I have
known John Mickey twenty-eight
years. I bought land , of him when I
first came here. I paid taxes to htm
as county treasurer. There is no bet
tor man around hero. When the Odd
l'ello\VB ' worn building hero , I wont to
Mr. Mickey expecting a $2t > subscrip
tion , for ho was not an Odd Pel low , '
but ho gave mo a hundred. Wo don't
pay any attention hero to those Inter
flows In the World-Herald. " I
Mr. Chas. Uurkhlrt , a Gorman and
eld soldier , In Mr. Gursheo's store , said : ,
"When I came hero Mickey won one of
the first men I moL Ho wa < < nctlvo In
the G. A. R. and befriended mo. It
was n slmmo to misrepresent him an
the World-Horald did , but he's got1
plenty of friends hero. I will vote fen
lilrn myself. " j
H. T. Arnold , banker : "John II. ,
Mickey Is a lovol-hcaded , conservative , ]
hardworking , earnest , conscientious )
man. In my Judgment ho will make a
good executive. " '
H. F. Henderson , hardware : "I votcdj
for Bryan both times , but I have very
high respect for Mr. Mlckoy. IIo Is a
very capable man. Ho knows what toj
do and how to do H. He will get the
warm support of thin county. "
P. L. Dunn , hardware : "Mr. Mlckoy.
stands high hero. The World-Horald
Interviews arc treated only with con
Oliver Wcstbcrg , traveling man : "I
have known Mickey twcnty-nlno years ,
He Is a first-class business man. Ho
will know what Is going on In the state
Institutions i ( ho Is governor. I hope
ho will bo elected. "
Dr. L. N. Shaw : "Havo known
Mickey twenty-throe years. There has
never been a cleaner or more compe
tent man In the governor's office. "
Otto Kuminer , farmer : "Mickey will
run well In my precinct. My father
helped nominate him for county treas
urer In ' 71. His record Is clean. "
E. L. King , attorney : "The people
who were Interviewed by the World-
Herald misrepresented Mr. Mickey and
his standing In this county. The re
action against such methods will only
make more votes for Mickey. Ho Is
without question one of the best men
over nominated for the governor's of
fice In this state. "
Mr. O. H. Munn , W. F. Shank , George
Carmine , Joseph Karrcr , W. F. Miller ,
W. B. Carson , John F. Anderson , S. J.
Harless , S. G. Phmsant , Judge F. H.
Saunders , W. O. Cox , and others , all
old settlers In Osceola , spoke of Mr.
Mickey in the highest terms.
At Stromsburg , the endorsement of
Mr. Mickey by the business men was
as positive as at Osceola. Stromsburg
used to be one of the strongholds of
populism , but the whole situation 1ms
changed In the last year or two , and
the sentiment for Mr. Mickey's election
Is now the most conspicuous political
demonstration here. Mr. P. T. Buck
ley , one of the old timers , and a promi
nent business man , said :
"I went down to Mickey's home
stead In ' 71 to get him to show me how ,
to make my homestead papers. IIo
wcs then a sort o a general counselor
to the settlers. He knew how to do
everything. When there was any new
thing to bo done , Mickey always dug
right Into It , looked up the law , and
found out all about It. His whole llfo
since then has been right along that ,
line. He has helped more people In
this county than any other man who
has ever lived In it. "
Mr. John B. Buckley , president of
one of the banks here , and a large
property owner , said :
"I have lived hero thirty-nine years
and have known John Mickey all this
time. I know his record as a public
official , as a business man and as a
citizen , and I know no cleaner record
and no better man. The pops spent
J2.500 of the county's money trying to
find something against him while ho ,
was county treasurer , and I tell you ,
populism never recovered from the re-i
bound of that Investigation. " t
J. A. Tarble , a farmer at Shelby , be-i
Ing in Stromsburg , said : "I have !
known Mr. Mickey ever since I home-l
steaded twenty-nine years ago. I'm an
old soldier and It makes mo Indignant' '
to think that the World-Herald would ,
misrepresent him and his relation to ,
the old soldiers. Why , John Mickey'
has been the most practical friend the
old soldiers have had In this county.
I remember some years ago when the/ /
winter was cold and everybody was
hard up , we had a meeting of the post
to consider the needs of some of the
old veterans. Some of them needed
money and the post had no money.
Mickey got up and said : 'Send them'
to mo and I will take care of them ,
somehow. ' Ho was always Just llko1
that He has done moro kind acts to
the old veterans than any other man
In this county , and the papers ought ,
to be ashamed to try and take that ,
credit away from him , but he's got ,
friends enough to elect him all right"
M. P. Llndberg spoke of the organi
zation of the Swedish-American league
that was going on In Stromsburg. It's
a republican organization. Of
Mickey ho said :
"Tho republicans could not have
named a man that would run better In !
this locality than John Mickey. " |
J. P. Smith , old settler and old sol
dier : "I took a homestead thlrty-ono
years ago , and live on It yet right hereby
by this town. I have known Mr.
Mickey nil these years. Ho Is consid
ered a very straight man In this coun
ty. Ho is considerate In his dealings
with poor men , but If a man can pay ,
Mickey tnnUofl them como right dp to
the icrntch , Ho will bo a good biuil-
ncnn governor. "

I * H. Henderson , merchant : "I havo'
been hero twenty-four years. I have
known Mr. Mickey all the time. The
World-Herald Interview ! will help htm
in thin county. I never heard of a re-
llahlq man accusing John Mluhcy of
anything dishonorable. I voted the
pop ticket till two years ago. I found
It watt no uno. It couldn't ' do any

and would have stayed with the popn.

13. Haas , dry goods : "I know Mr.
Mickey well. Used to live In Ouccola
and did business with him. Parties
who gave out Interviews to the World-
Herald don't stand well. Mlckoy Is a
good , broad-minded man and ho will
make a good executive. "
M. T. Barber , old soldier and old
settler : "I settled here In the fall of
' 72 , and Btlll llvo on the sanio farm.
Mli-key has been a ulanch friend to tbo
old soldlorn. I'm ono of them myself ,
and I know what hln record Is hero In
that line. He Is a helper. IIo IH a

at this practical point and wants to do
the thing that will do the most good.
Pop commissioners paid out $2r > 00 to
have his record examined HH county
treasurer and they couldn't find a thing
against him. The people who guve out
intervlowH against Mr. Mickey to the
World-Herald arc ashamed of It now
and they ought to be. They arc claimIng -
Ing now that what they sulil to the
World-IIernld reported was exagger
ated , but they ought to be ashamed
to be talking at all against a man like
John Mickey. If he ain't a good man ,
then there arc no Kood men In this
At Shelby , a small town In the east
ern part of Polk county , Mr. Isaac
Paisley , an old Boldior , Bald : "Yes , I
settled hero thirty years ago and I
have got the homestead yet. I ciiine
from the same county in Iowa that
Mickey came from. I didn't know him
there , but I knew his folks. They were
well-to-do people of high standing.
John Mickey Is a strong and forceful
man In any place where there's work
to do that requires judgment and ac
curacy. I never knew of his honesty
being questioned until they got out
something In the paper against him. I
don't think anyone around here be
lieves a word of that stuff I haven't
seen a man who believed a word of It. "
John Fox , old settler and old soldier ,
talked of his long acquaintance with
Mr. Mickey : "I settled on a home
stead just a mile from Mickey's home
stead , In ' 71. Mickey got the con
fidence of the people right from the
start because he seemed to know how
to do everything , and he has held their
confidence ever since. I always worked
for him In every election when he was
running for county treasurer , and I
have never regretted It. We'll stay by
him in this county. Don't worry about
that. Maybe they can beat him for
governor , but he has done more good
deeds than any other man In the coun
ty and they can't beat him out of that"
George M. McMillan , farmer , from
Hnckberry precinct , was In Shelby on
business. Mr. McMillan owns a two
hundred acre farm adjoining the
Mickey homestead. Speaking of Mr.
Mickey , he said :
"I have been dealing with John
Mickey more or less for seventeen
years. I will vote for him with a good
deal of satisfaction. He will get near
ly all the votes In Hackberry precinct
this year. "
Peter Wise , old settler and and old
soldier : "I knew John Mickey In
Louisa county. Iowa , when ho was a
boy and have known him ever since. I
homesteaded near him in ' 71. I drove
through from Iowa by team. When I
got here Mickey was the first man I
met. Ho was mighty poor then used
to work In the field bare-footed. I
have done lots of business with him
since that time. Some of the men ho
helped when they couldn't get money
anywhere else came out In the papers
against him , but they have done him
moro good than they Intended to. "
Lcvl Cunningham , old settler : "I
came hero In ' 71. John Mickey was a
good friend to the settlers here In the
early times and he has never changed
a bit I was laid up and my folks
sent mo a box from home. I wasn't
asking for aid. My folks were helping
mo , that was all. When the box came
there was $17 freight. I didn't havt
no $17 , and I wont to Mr. Mlckoy. I
didn't have anything hardly and could
not give security , but ho Just handed
me a twenty-dollar bill. I told him 1
couldn't make the change , for I didn't
have a cent. 'That's all right , ' said
Mlckoy. 'You Just take It with you
and hand It to me when you get it. '
Ho didn't charge mo any Interest then.
I have borrowed money of him since
and paid him Interest. Ho was the
one who cut the Interest down In this

nearly everything now. John Mickey
Is all right. There's no foolishness in

went down. He said when McKln

and everything else would go down.
Well I thought I would try It Just once
I got enough the first time. I'm awfu
glad that that fool vote of mine dldn'

right for me. I have got enough sons
