Oscar Rlchoy , street commissioner ,
was acquitted In the sidewalk case.
The jury found a verdict In his favor
at a late hour In the day. This was
the case In which the city street com
missioner tore up a sidewalk on the
property of Brae Hlght , North Tenth
street , under Instructions of Mayor
Friday , who declared the walk was In
a dangerous condition. Mr. Hlght
brought complaint for the wilful de
struction of property because ho hnd
received no notice that the sidewalk
had ever betJn condemned. County
Attorney Koenlgsteln filed the com-
ilalnt nnd prosecuted It , while City
Attorney Wenthorby defended the
street commissioner. The jurors were
E. B. Kauffmnnn , August Brummund
ind Dr. C. F. W. Mnrquardt. No rec
ord of condcmnntlon proceedings
against tlio walk could bo found by
the city clerk In his record , but the
mayor Insists that the walk was con
demned by the council nt one time.
A band was organized In Norfolk
last night. There are twenty-three
players In the organization to start

give a band concert within the next
two weeks for the purpose of demon
strating to the people of Norfolk that
the local talent can make good music.
On the strength of this concert the
band will then ask subscriptions from
the business Interests of the city , so
that a lender may bo employed. The
twenty-three original members nro nil
good renders of music so that It will
bo n short time until they can produce
a first class concert. In Will Ahl-
mann's safe there Is music to the val-
HO of $200 which has never yet been
opened , nnd some of these new pieces
will bo played in Norfolk. The band

Lincoln Star : The bright light
which Is suffusing that part of Nebraa-
ka of which Norfolk la the hub Is noth
ing more nor less thnn the smile of
the fnco of W. N. HIIRO , of The Norfolk
News. The News probably could claim
and deserve more credit for the defeat
of Congressman McCarthy at the con-
volition In Fremont than nny other
factor In the tight which resulted In
victory for Judge Boyd.
The bitter opposition of Huso wna
the result of tin alleged wrong on the
part of McCarthy , that wrong being
one of the most monumental sins In-
grntltudo. It happened that In another
campaign , when McCarthy waa run
ning for congress and Huso waa Blip-
porting him , The Norfolk News and
another newspaper In the district
printed , at McCarthy's request and In
hla behalf , an nrtlrlo which wna given
n Hbi'lotiH construction by the courts.
H use nnd the other editor were
"atuck" for damages and , It la alleged ,
McCarthy , the renl benellclnry of the
costly publication , failed to bcnr n
portion of the penalty paid by the pub
lishers for printing that which might
better have been left out of their col
Leaving out of consideration the
merlta of Huso's defense and the ques
tion of whether or not he was justified
In publishing the nrtlclo which caused
the trouble , the fnct remains that trou
ble cnmo nnd , according to Huso , Me-
Cnrthy fnilcd to step up nnd take his
dose of the medicine.
Indignation on the part of Huso fol
lowed this evidence of Ingratitude.
Ho believed that a man who had acted
In that way should not bo sent back
to congress , and he told the people of
his county all about It In pretty strong
terms , bringing In n few other Issues
which hnd more or less effect.
Newspapers nro so often the victims
of Ingratitude that it will please many
of the publishers of Nebraska to know
that one thoughtless man has learned
n lesson he will not soon forget. The
nverage political ! thinks the newspaper
was created for his special benefit , to
bo used as he would direct and whenever -
over he gives command. The mnn
who would not think of asking the
publisher to print n free notice about
his hardware store expects a column
of compliments when he decides to run
for the legislature nnd Is offended
when the space is not given. And
when n newspaper , particularly the so-
called country newspaper , has wasted
Its space , its time , money nnd energy
In promoting the cnuse of a homo can-
dldnte , how often Is.It . thnt the fellow ,
after his election , even thinks of going
to hla editor and thanking him for the
service he has rendered ?
The Ingratitude of which Mr. Huso
complains Is n notable case in Itself.
But It does not stand alone. Probably
every editor in Nebraska knows how
ungrateful most ofllce-seckers are , how
forgetful they are , how "nervy" In ex
pecting nn editor to give , in unlimited
quantities , that which to the editor Is
the equivalent of cnsh.
Newspapers have as one of their
prime purposes the support of partic
ular principles , such support to be
given without price. But the average
politician appears to believe that the
newspaper was created for the purpose
of boosting him Into olllce , the editor
to be passed without sign of recogni
tion after election day.
Hastings Tribune : By defeating J.
.T. McCarthy for a reiiomlnntlon to rep
resent the Third district of Ncbrnskn
In the lower house of the United
States congress , W. N. Huse , who Is
editor of The Norfolk News , won a
McCarthy made the mistake that so
many men mnke thnt of underesti
mating the other man's strength.
When Honorable J. J. McCarthy ran
for congress two years ngo Editor
Huso published nn article In his paper
which denounced in the most emphntlc
terms McCnrthy's opponent. The nr
tlclo wns furnished by the chairman of
the republican county central commit
tee who informed Mr. Huse that Mc
Carthy requested the publication of
the story and that he would vouch for
Its truthfulness. At first Huse refused
to give the article publication , and it
was not until the strongest kind of
pressure waa brought to bear that ho
consented. The article was published ,
McCarthy was elected and Editor
Huso had a $ G,000 damage suit on his
What did McCarthy do ?
When ho was notified of the suit
thnt had been stnrted against Huse ho
put on a bold front nnd wnnted to
know whnt In h 1 he hnd to do with
It or words to that effect. And that
was all ho did have to do with it. Ho
left Huso to fnco thnt dnmngo suit
Huso faced the damage suit nnd
Mxed It up. Then he turned his atten
tion to McCarthy and his campaign.
When Huso announced In his paper
his Intentions of defeating McCarthy ,
and gave his reasons for doing so
there were sonio politicians who
smiled , and said thnt Huse was only
wasting good advertising space In his
valuable journal. They Mgnred that by
virtue of his ofllco McCarthy would
have the party organization back of
him , including every postmaster
throughout the Third district.
It did look a little dubious for Huse ;
but not for one minute did he lose
courage. Every dny he tallied to the
people through the columns of his pa
per , and all that ho said was the plain
truth , without frills or nourishes , The
people know him , they listened to him ,
nnd they believed him. Thnt wns enough
-McCnrthy's boom wns doomed.
At no stnge of the gnmo did McCar
thy dronm of failure. Ho laughed nt

A Good Selection.
Nebraska Politician : In the nomi
nation of Judge J. F. Boyd of Nellgh
UK the republican candidate for con
gress In the Third district , the party
has inndo a selection which will assist
In Incrcnslng tlu > majority this full.
The district convention hold at Fre
mont Thursday turned down by a most
declslvo vote Congressman J. J. Mc
Carthy's request for n renoniluatlon
and designated the Nollgh man as the
standard bearer In the battle this fall.
Judge Boyd Is one of the most popular
men In the Third district. Ills popu
larity is not confined to any particular
section of the district , but Is general.
As a member of the district judiciary
Judge Boyd hns made a record which
his successor on the bench will have
to work hard to equal. The nomina
tion of Judge Boyd wns brought about
through a feeling of general dissatis
faction over the district with the way
In which Congressman McCarthy has
looked after the interests of the dis
trict. Mr. McCarthy has not been as
successful In securing appropriations
for the district as was desired. Ills
desertion of W. N. Huso of The Nor
folk News when the latter was being
sued for a llbelous publication made
In support of McCarthy , had much to
do with turning sentiment ngnlnst the
congressman and the leading newspa
pers of the district were quick to take
up the cause of Huso and demand Mc
Carthy's retirement. In nominating
Boyd to succeed McCarthy the repub
licans of the district have selected a
man who will work tirelessly for their
Interests and who Is bound to bo rec
ognized down at Washington. Ho Is
one of those men whom the district
cnn afford to keep In congress for
Mlddletown , N. Y. , Aug. 20. W N.
Huso , Norfolk , Nob. Dear Sir : "Be
cause of gross ingratitude shown you
by Congressman McCarthy , I have
been greatly Interested In the matter
whether McCarthy would again be
nominated. To me It has been a won
der why you have been so lenient with
him in showing him up as he deserved ,
since "the mills of the gods grind slow
but grind exceedingly Hue , " which em
phasizes what yon say In the edltorlnl
bended "The News Has Been Fair. "
Concerning an Ingrate "nothing more
detestable does the earth produce than
an ungrateful man. " If you have half
a chance of winning In n legnl notion
ngalnst McCarthy growing out of the
libel suit brought agnlnst you nnd for
which he , as I understand It , was re
sponsible , or should hnvo been a party
in defense of said libel , I wish you
would begin action agnlnst him. You
owe it , it seems to mo , to your friends
who have stood by youi to endeavor
to recover what expense you were put
to in defending McCarthy.
I beg to reiterate , the best editorial
and newspaper for a country Issue I
hnvo ever seen is The Dally News.
Success to you.
Yours most sincerely ,
S. W. Corwin.
McCarthy Was Disappointed.
Fremont correspondence to Omaha
World-Herald : McCarthy was greatly
disappointed , as he went into the con
vention with what ho supposed was n
sulllcient number of votes to have
made his nomination only n matter of
Boyd nnd his workers were very
nctlve. Before the convention they
had determined to beat McCarthy , and
made a canvass of the district. Be
cause some of the delegates on the
Brown ticket nt North Bend were fa
vorable to McCarthy the town conven
tion went ngalnst the attorney general.
Editor Huse of Norfolk bad claimed
McCarthy broke faith with him , bit
terly fought him , and the editor wield
ed influence in his part of the district
There was no Mght on the conven
tion floor the Boyd trick was turned
The candidates , W. W. Young of
Stanton , In addition to McCarthy and
Boyd , were called before the conven
tion. Boyd said he had been very ac
tive. McCarthy admitted his disap
pointment , nnd joined with Young in
saying ho would support the ticket.
They Loved McCarthy.
Pierce Call : Wo desire to Inform
The Norfolk Daily News that the en
dorsement of Judge Boyd for congress
by the republican convention of Pierce
county Monday was not a slnp nt our
present honored congressmnn , J. J.
McCarthy , but rather because Judge
Boyd In his many visits to Pierce coun
ty in years past ns district judge hns
become voiy popular. Ho hns a close
and Intimate acquaintance with nearly
every voter In the county and has the
highest esteem of all. Wo have never
heard a republican In this county speak
disrespectfully of Congressman Mc
Carthy or complain of his not doing
his duty In Washington. In fact many
have heartily commended him for do
ing his dntv , the past four years , but
that was lost sight of In their- enthusi
asm for their old friend nnd neighbor ,
Judge Boyd. The personal scrap of
The Norfolk News editor had no Influ
ence whatever upon the result In
Hurt County Herald : No one frit
more jubilant over McCarthy's defeat
than we did. When the news was
'phoned to us from Fremont a few
minutes after Judge Boyd was noml
natod instead of McCarthy , we
arnbbid nn armful of lings nnd un
furled them to the breeze proclaiming
that McCarthy was defeated Ho got
just whnt wns coming to him , just
whnt ho Invited. The time is past
when n congressmnn cnn tnko his or
ders from n few political bosses In
each county and expect to servo his
constituency satisfactorily. The poli
tical boss as a rule Is a man of bad
repute at home and It will sooner or
later kill the olllclal who hearkens to
his advice. The political bosses will
soon bo out of a job.
There Was Trouble.
Omaha Dally News : Congressman
McCarthy was defeated In his Mghtfor
the congressional nomination yester
day from the Third district and Judge
Boyd of Nellgh was pushed through on
the first ballot , 129 to 123.
McCarthy bad expected to carry the
convention without any trouble , but
there was no Mgbt on the lloor.
The Boyd men had been very nctlve
nnd mndo a canvass of the district be
fore the opening.
Prominent among the fighters agnlnst
McCarthy was Editor Huse of Nor
folk , who claims that McCarthy broke
fnlth with him.
The third candidate was W. W.
Young of Stantou.
Machine Men Sneered.
Battle Creek Enterprise ( before con
vention ) : While ninny of the mnchlne
republicans of the Third district may
have sneered nt the efforts made by
W. N. Huso of The Norfolk News to
defeat Congressman McCarthy for ro-
nomlnatlon , It Is a self evident fact
that Mr. Huse has succeeded In doing
what ho started out to do. Dodge
county , supposed nt one time to be
solid for McCarthy , refused to endorse
his candidacy and It now looks like
Judge Boyd will receive the nomina
tion on the first ballot. So far ns re
publican newspapers nre concerned.
The News has made the Mght slngle-
hnnded and in the results the publish
er must Mnd great satisfaction.
Boyd All Right.
Tekamnh Journal : lu the ifomlna-
tlon of Judge Boyd of Nellgh for con
gress in this district the republicans
are extremely fortunate. He will
make an ideal candidate. Fully
equipped with a mentality of high or
der , a pleasing personality , and one
whose life has been irreproachable ,
ho unites all those quallMcatlons In
one whom men like to meet , think
about and vote for. We predict for
him an overwhelming plurality and a
career in congress that shall please
everyone of his constituents no matter
what their political predilections may
Boyd Defeats McCarthy.
Wayne Democrat : At the congres
