Important to Somebody. If the
young men who have been promised
situations under those democratic
nominees (who hope to be elected),
will all 6end their names to the editor
of this paper, with the situation prom
ised, we will, in exchange, send to
each one the entire list. It is becom
ing quite too monotonous for certain
gentlemen to do a political banking
business on this sort of capital. It is
a very common dodge with a class of
office seekers to promise some posi
tion to five or fifteen men in different
parts of the county for their supposed
influence in the precincts, thinking
that 6uch double-dealing will not
come to light, at least until after it
shall have worked its purpose. Send
in the facts, as suggested above, and
you will have a revelation. Only one
man can be elected to each office, and,
according to what we have heard
about promises of subordinate posi
tions, a considerable number must
necessarily be disappointed.
We cannot forbear the reflection
that in the judicial nominations for
this district the republican party has
glorified itself. Judge Post is, with
out doubt, one of the best judges on
the bench of Nebraska. Thoroughly
posted, perfectly cool and collected
he dispenses law and justice with the
skill and mien of a master. The man
who submits his case in his hands has
not a question that it will be decided
according to law and evidence, and
even his political enemies concede to
him merits of the highest order.
Judge Post will be elected by an un
precedented majority. Col. Marshall,
our candidate for district attorney, is
equally fortunate in being a universal
favorite and a gentleman against
whom, politically or personally, noth
ing can be established. He is a thor
oughly schooled and competent attor
ney whose opinions have as great a
weight as those of any other counsel
lor in Nebraska. Col. Marshall will
go iu with Judge Post on the flood
tide. North Bend Hail.
The game Thursday last between
i the Union Pacifies of Omaha and the
Keystones of this city was interesting
to the spectators. The Keystones
labored under heavy disadvantages,
and one of their number, Mr. Weaver,
was put out of the game by a wound.
However, they took their defeat ad
mirably. The Union Pacifies were
met at the depot by the Keystones and
the Band, and in the evening a ball
was given in their honor. Below, we

at Johnstown, N. Y., in 1857. He
comes of good .parentage, his father,
John Wells, having served several
terms as judge of Fulton count', N.
Y., and one as a member of the
national congress. Young Wells at
tended the public schools of his native
town and afterwards Union Univer
sity, at Schenectady, graduating in
June, 1878. Two years afterwards he
graduated from, the Albany Law
School. In 1880 he removed to
Wheeler county, tbis state, and in
September, 1882, to Platte county,
whero be now resides and practices
law, being a member of the firm of
Walker & Wells. The people of the
county who do not know Mr. Wells,
will have an opportunity during the
campaign of making his acquaintance.
In the conduct of his office he would
pride himself in doing his whole duty
by the interests that would come
under his charge.

The nominee for county clerk, was
born in Sauc county, Wisconsin, in
the year 1S54. His father was one of
the early pioneers of that then fron
tier state, emigrating from Switzer
land in 1838, and settling iu Prairie
Du Sac, Sauc Co., Wisconsin, the
same year. His mother was a native
of Germany, so he is a full-booded
descendant of that sturdy, independ
ent, frugal, persevering stock, that
cross from the lands of William Tell
and "Old Fritz'' that underlies one of
the best strata of our American citi
zenship. Henry .was born and raised
on a farm, doing the manual labor
expected of boys of his age in that
position, and receiving the advanta
ges of a common school education
during the winter months, ending
with three terms at the high school in
the city of Prairie Du Sac ; thence he
served a five year's clerkship iu a
general 6tore in his native town, re
moving to this city in the early spring
of 1879, where he started in the gen
eral grocery trade, in which he has
met with the invariable success that
honesty, prudence, economy and in
defatigable energy insure. Last
spring, unsolicited and unexpected by
him, his friends nominated him for
councilman of the second ward of
this city. His opponent was one of
the most prominent democrats in the
city, but Mr. Ragatz was elected by a
handsome majority in the old demo
cratic ward. To those who know
Henry Ragatz no word of commenda
tion is needed, aud hie fricuds predict
his election to the office of county
clerk as a certainty.
Mr. Editor: Please allow me a
small space to reply to some inquiries
why the anti-monopolists did n.-.t en
dorse more democrats. It was on
acconnt ofa resolutiouoflered.by.the
mouth-piece of the "democracy of
Platte county, and adopted in their
late convention. But the resolution
was nothing iu comparison to.theju
sinuatiug and&insultfug speech made
in connection with it. By looking
into the reflector of the great polit
ical arena, we see a Post.in the center
that he intended those people which
he spoke ot should tie to.
We thiuk that "Jacinto" does in
justice to a very worthy gentleman,
in ascribing private and personal
reasons for a political,.act. In 'the
opinion expressed by the resolution
there was a concurrence of the main
leaders of the democratie party of
Platte couuty, and they all, certainly,
could not have'had a personaljreasou.
Our correspondent will remember
that unmixed party spirit is a power
ful Ingredient iu American politics.
