On last Wednesday the Democ
racy in convention nominated John
Walker the present incumbent, for
County Commisrioner, and George
Lehman, the well-known proprietor
of the Grand Pacific, for representa

the senatorial struggle.
G. W. Brown, of Boone county,
has been nominated by the republi

assist in making the state laws.
The Republican Central Com
mittee met Monday evening and de
cided not to appoint any meetings
throughout the county for public
speaking, but to supply demand for
speakers when called for by the com
mitteemen or others of a precinct.
If you want particular speakers to
address your community on partic
ular subjects, let your wants be
known to the Chairman of the Com
mittee, S. C. Smith, Columbus.
One day last week a party of
young men engaged at a friendly
game of cards, were arrested, taken
before Justice Millet, tried and fined
$2 apiece; after the money was paid
in, the Justice invited the interested
spectators into an oyster saloon,
where the whole of it was spent for
oysters for the crowd. The matter
is considered a good joke ob all
hands, but it might be well enough
for real policemen and magistrates
not to engage in such mattert.which
have a tendency to lessen the dignity
and authority of their office.

The Republican candidate for Co.
Commissioner, Joseph Rivet, is a
resident of Lookfng Glass precinct ;
is in the prime of life ; is an earnest,
thoughtful man of good judgment;
he has the entire confidence of the
community in which he lives, as a
fair-minded roan, who not only in
tends to do right, but who takes
pains to inform himself as to the
facts upon which he builds his opin
ions. Kindly in his disposition, he
is yet not susceptible to wrong in
fluences, but can say "yes" or "no,"
with firmness and without giving
offence. Duty, with him, would be
paramount. We feel sure that he
would hoaor the office for which his
friends have earned him, and believe
that he will be elected.
