HIS NAME FORMALLY PLACED ON
NO CANDIDATE AGAINST HIM
Judge A. A. Welch of Wayne Must be
Elected for Two Distinct Terms of
Office In Order to Serve Beyond
Application has been filed with Sec
retary of State Junkln asking that the
name of Anson A. Welch be placed on
the primary ballot as a republican cani
dldate for judge of the Ninth judicial
district. Judge Welch , whose homo Is
nt Wayne , Is at present serving as
judge of the Ninth district , filling the
vacancy created by the resignation
last winter of Judge J. F. Boyd of No-
llgh , who left the bench to take his
seat in congress.
Must be Candidate For Two Places.
According to the call just Issued by
County Clerk George Richardson of
Madison , Judge Welch must be nom
inated for and elected for two distinct
terms of office , If he Is to serve In his
present capacity beyond January 1 ,
1908. Judge Welch was appointed by
Governor Sheldon to fill an unexplred
term. Ills appointment is effective
"until the next general election , " or
until the coming November. On elec
tion day In November the appointment
will end and there will be n vacancy
in the office of Judge of the Ninth ju
dicial district. But the next regular
term of judge does not start until Jan-
nary following election. Therefore
Judge Welch must be elected first to
fill the vacancy existing between elec
tion day and the first of January , when
the regular term begins ; and secondly
he must be elected for that regular
term , beginning January 1.
Could be Two Different Men.
Under the law one man could be
elected to fill the vacancy between
November and January and an entire
ly different man , if the voters desired ,
could be elected to serve in the reg
ular term beginning January 1.
All of these possibilities , however ,
will tend in no way to disturb Judge
Welch's chances. He has made an
ideal jurist , fair in his decisions and
of pleasing dignity. He has given sat
isfaction alike to the bar and the lay
men in the Ninth district and accordIng -
Ing to a number of leading democrats
there is not likely to be any candidate
in the race against him.
The Ninth judicial district includes
Madison , Pierce , Knox , Antelope and

NOW VALENTINE COMES TO THE
CFRONT WITH BIG ONE.
CAPT. M'CLOUD IS THE HERO
They Found Him Grasping the Trestle
Work and Holding a Clothes Line.
On the End of the Clothes Line-
Well , Guess What They Found.
Valentino , Neb. , July 17. Special to
The News : During the past week the
nill pond hero has been lowered about
ten feet to Install a new water wheel.
Yesterday morning when the men
went to work they were surprised to
hoar loud cries for help coming from
the spillway. They rushed to the
breast of the dam and there Just over
the falls with one hand grasping some
trestle work was Cant. McCloud. In
the other hand was a taut clothes line
rope reaching Into the falls below.
The captain shouted something but
what it was the men could not dlstln-
ulsh on account of the roaring of the
water. But thinking some ono was
Irowning and that McCloud had
thrown them a rope , two of the mon
Jumped Into the wheel race and , catch
ing hold of the rope , with difficulty
carried it ashore and commenced haul
ing in. What was their surprise to
see rising above the water the head
of a mammoth catfish.
It seems that McCloud had lost a
great many hooks and lines while
fishing In the bayou. A big fish would
take the bait and with no apparent
struggle would carry off hook and
line. The captain had told this so
many times that it was discredited.
Finally as a joke O. W. Moroy , Me-
Cloud's rival as an angler , had ad
vised him to go to the blacksmith
shop and have a large hook made and
fasten a clothes line to It , bait It with
half a liver and go after the big fish.
McClond had taken this seriously
and yesterday had gone down early to
the pond and thrown the line Into the
bayou. After a few casts the line was
nearly jerked from his hands. Sur
prised but hanging on he was drawn
toward the water's edge , but being
dead game" and unable to hold back
was drawn into the water nnd for
about ten minutes was towed about
the pond , drawing closer nnd closer
to the falls. The fish , now exhausted ,
was caught by the current at the dam
and carried over the falls. McCloud
managed to catch the trestle work
and save himself. The catfish was
carried to the mill scales and tipped
the balance at 102 pounds.
The captain is now the proudest man
in Valentino and his veracity as to fish
stories is no longer doubted.
