In a conversation Saturday with
one of our wheat buyers, he tells us
to advise farmers to hold their wheat
for a better market. The railroad
was blocked, and it was impossible
to obtain cars. He thought the
reason of it was that great numbers,
of cattle were bciug shipped from
the west over the U. P., and that all
the extra cars were being used for
this work. In this trade they had
to compete with the B. & M., but,
east of Grand Island, they would
get the carrying trade any how, and
the other, having to be done now,
they couldn't afford not to get it.
This is one of the beauties of having
The Era says that "every man
who casts his vote against Mr. Hen
ry for commissioner will say by
his ballot that he is opposed to an
economical administration of our
county affairs, opposed to every
needed enterprise, opposed to low
taxes, opposed to impartiality and
an unswerving purpose to be and do
right." Now we undertake to assert
that Mr. Wise's record as commis
sioner (and our opinion is that he
will be allowed to make a record)
will show that he is not opposed to
an economical administration of
county affairs; that he is not oppos
ed to needed enterprise; that he is
not opposed to low taxes ; that he is
not opposed to impartiality and an
unswerving purpose to be and do
right. Whatever good the Era may
have to say of the Democratic nom
inee, it ought not to be necessary
for that sheet to slander the fair
fame of Johu Wise, by saying that
those who vote for him, are in favor
of high taxes, uncalled-for expendi
tures, partiality, economy and an
unswerving purpose to do wrong.
