Don't fail to read the article headed
"That Mass Convention in Columbus."
It will lead you into some of the intrica
cies of politics in these days, when it
takes three parties to make one, and if
necessary to carry a point, a populist
can very readily become a democrat in
order to come within the sacred precinct
of the party playing fast and loose.

Judge Kilian to the following parties:

The Humphrey Democrat does not
support Phillips, Robison and Byrnes,

Phillip's deputy, in case he should by a
possibility be elected.

Both of the above expressions are
from the Creston Statesman, and are
thorough samples of what a man can do
when he seta out to undertake to de
ceive his readers. R. B. Thompson, the
editor of the Creston Statesman, ought
to be ashamed of himself, if he has any
shame at all left, after such a deliver
ance. It is pretty easy to engage in loose
jointed, irresponsible, fault finding
against a public official, such as the
Argus indulges against G. A. Rolf, but
it is altogether another thing to make
such assertions good. The Jouknai.
undertakes to say that Mr. Rolf is not
"extravagant," at all; in fact that his
species of economy is very vary much
much ahead of the sort that friend Kier
nan keeps around him. Mr. Rolf is an
industrious-minded, sober, steady man,
attentive to the business in hand, and
"when it comes to putting in a bill for
bis own services, mileage, eta, his
figures" are decidedly not "something
wonderful," at all. What reason there
could be for choosing Kiernan to Bolt

Good Endorsement for Sup't Williams.
The following, from the Rochester
(Ind.) Republican, is one of those appre
ciative utterances entirely unsought for,
and yet wholly deserving:
Professor William J. Williams bos
just been nominated, by the republicans,
at Columbus, Nebraska, for the office of
county superintendent of schools. In
that state the incumbents of that office
are selected by the voters of each coun
ty, instead of being selected by the
township trustees, as is the custom in
Indiana. The Professor was for several
years superintendent of the Rochester
public schools and afterward served two
years each as county superintendent of
the schools in this county. From Roch
ester he moved to Franklin, Indiana,
where he accepted a professorship in
Franklin college, which he subsequent
ly resigned to accept the snperintend
ency of the public schools of Franklin.
There are few educators who equal Prof.
Williams in his adaptability for school
work and he always discharged the du
ties of his position in an efficient and
creditable manner. He is thoroughly
educated and his wide experience makes
him especially valuable to the commu
nity, which he now aspires to serve.
The Republican joins his many friends
in Fulton county in the hope that he
will be successful in the coming elec
tion. Another Oatrage.
The following is from the Columbus
Telegram, and shows quite a state of
affairs. For our part we do not see why
it is that the democracy cannot be al
lowed to look after their own political
household in their own way:
As per call a mass convention of the
pops met at the court-house last Satur
day afternoon for the purpose of nomi
nating a candidate for supervisor in this
district The attendance of pops was
large, and Bob Lisco, the bridge expert,
was promptly nominated. Democrats
very properly absented themselves from
this meeting. They had no business
Immediately after the adjournment of
the pop convention, the democrats
assembled at the same place also for the
purpose of nominating a candidate for
supervisor. What did the pops do?
Did they withdraw to give the demo
crats a chance? Not a bit of it. A
large number of them devoid of all
honor remained in the court -room,
took possession of the meeting, and
against the protest of some true demo
crats, voted down all propositions for
the nomination of a democrat for the
place, and finally insisted on and carried
the nomination of Lisco, the pop bridge
sharp. Most of the democrats retired
from the hall in great indignation, and
will decline to vote for the gentleman
of bridges.
The pops put dirt all over the demo
crats at the primaries previous to the
late democratic convention, but last
Saturday they rubbed it in a little too
bard. Will democrats stand this last
insult? We know some who will not.
Mrs. Frank J. Divis of Shell creek
precinct, Colfax county, whose account
of poisoning herself and children was
given in last week's Journal, it seems,
was of a moody turn of mind, and she
and her husband had some differences in
regard to the children. Parents of the
husband, according to the Quill, were a
disturbing feature between husband and
wife. The husband scolded about them
not caring for things properly when he
was away and his wife cried about it
cried most of the night and no doubt
decided during that time to end her
troubles by removing herself and chil
dren. The five bodies were buried in
one grave.
The Norfolk Journal calls attention
to the fact that a fakir was allowed to
flimflam people on one corner of that
city without molestation because he had
paid the city $2 for the privilege, while
a little band of people on the opposite
corner were threatened with imprison
ment because they were trying to serve
God in their own peculiar, if misguided
way. Captain Lynes, the lady in charge,
was put under arrest, taken to the city
jail, and locked up for about ten min
utes, but the assurance of assistance
was so insistent that Marshall Mar
quardt concluded that "discretion was
the better part of valor."
William Both, carpenter and con
tractor, holds himself in readiness for
all kinds of work in his line. If you are
thinking of having any carpenter work
done, communicate with William Roth,

The Telegram, which, time out of
mind, has been tho democratic organ for
Platte county, is just now leaving its
moorings again, and is supporting sev
eral republicans on the ticket this fall,
as it did Hon. Ross Hammond last fall
for congressman. It now favors E. Pobl
for clerk; J. N. Kilian for county judge;
P. H. Bender for sheriff.
Mr. Parks says he was indignant, dis
gusted at the high-handed and dishon
orable methods resorted to by certain
alleged democrats to carry out their
plans at the recent democratic conven
tionhow the populists were allowed to
run the democratic primaries all over
the county and defeat democratic candi
dates for delegates to said convention.
They carried their point, and, though
the means were outrageously unfair and
dishonorable, we smothered our displea
sure and concluded to take no part in a
campaign where we could not consis
tently support the ticket with enthu
siasm. But the outrage of last Saturday at
the supervisor convention, which is
treated of in another column, has
changed our mind. It was the straw
that broke the patient camel's back, and
we propose to take a hand in the fray
from now on till the finish and punish
by defeat, if we can, the main engineers
of democratic disgrace.
Sap't WilllaaM.
The republican candidate for county
superintendent of public instruction is
like an old-fashioned neighbor of ours
he "gets a gait and keeps it."
He has acquired a splendid reputation
as a scholar, a principal, a superintend
ent of schools, and an educational force
in general, wherever he may be placed.
The following is from the Rochester
(Indiana) Sentinel, a newspaper that
does not think along the same lines po
litically as Mr. Williams does, but is
able to do him justice:
"Prof. Wm. J. Williams, formerly su
perintendent of the Rochester High
school and later county superintendent
of schools of this county, has been
nominated for connty superintendent
by his county, at Columbus, Nebraska.
The electiou of superintendent there is
made by popular vote and as the Prof,
is not much of a campaigner he may not
win, but he is a conscientious gentle
man, a most efficient educational worker
and tho kind of a teacher that is a bless
ing to any community."
The Jodbkatj calls attention to the
last four lines, and desires to einphasizo
them to the voters of Platte county,who
now have an opportunity to get a super
intendent, who will fill to satisfaction
every duty belonging to the office.
Judge Kilian.
"Now comes the most important office
in the county, that of connty judge.
Even the enemies of the judge
and he, like all men of pronounced
character, has a few have to acknowl
edge that he has made an excellent
officer; that his records which are the
most valuable in the county are models
in the way they are kept. Aside from
all this, Judge Kilian is a good lawyer,
which ia no small essential in the office
he holds. No man, without some legal
training, can make a satisfactory custo
dian of the business of the widows and
orphans of tho connty."
A pretty good send-off for the demo
cratic Telegram that was about to tako
no part in the campaign.
K. Foil I.
The Telegram, notwithstanding the
fact that it is not a republican paper,
but is democratic, gives its adherence to
E. Pohl for connty clerk, and says:
"Now as to the present county clerk,
Mr. Pohl, No one can deny but what
be has been as efficient and faithful an
officer as ever attended to the business
of Platte county. He has been prompt
and courteous to all, and the office at
tho present time is in such splendid
order that there could be no improve
ment For these reasons, we believe, in
a spirit of fairness obscuring the politi
cal view entirely, Mr. Pohl is entitled to
a second term, and we further believe
the voters will look at it in the same
way, and give it to him."
All for Bender.
We visited the northern portion of the
county the early part of this week and
found that the candidacy of P. H. Ben
der for sheriff bad taken like wildfire.
All classes of citizens, regardless of
party, are enthusiastically for him. As
a matter of fact, Mr. Bender, besides
being a most popular gentleman, is
peculiarly fitted for the position of
sheriff on account of the leather he is
made of. Possessed of dauntless cour
age a very necessary essential for such
office he has at the 6ame time a large
fund of common sense that will enable
him to act calmly and coolly under the
most trying circumstances. In short,
he is the very ideal of man to fill the
place, and we have not the slightest
doubt but what he will be elected.

The Humphrey Democrat ia a demo
cratic newspaper, is published where the
democratic and populist candidate for
county judge lives, but notwithstanding
these facts favors the re-election of
Judge Kilian as county jndgo tho next
two years, and gives him high praise, as
a lawyer; as a keeper of the very impor
tant records of the office; as a judge
holding tho impartial scales of justice
between the parties and persons inter
ested in matters of probate, and not as
an attorney for any of them; as the
trustee of estates in looking after the
bonds given by executors, administrators
and guardians, and seeing that they are
perfectly secure. "Everybody," says
the Democrat, who h:is ever had occa
sion to do business with the County
Judge for the past two years knows and
realizes the fact that Jndge Kilian is the
right man in the right place."

For a dollar bill The Semi-Weekly
Stato Journal will be rent from now
until January 1, 1899. A good long time
to get two big papers every week with
all the news of the whole world; all the
stato news and in fact more news and
general reading matter than you get in
any other state paper. Tho Journal is
spending money and effort in writing np
the interests of Nebraska and setting
our state's advantages before the whole
country. Nebraska's prosperity will
bring thousands of farm buyers to onr
state. You should read The Journal
which is not an Omaha paper or a Lin
coln paper, but a state paper in its
trnest sense. "What will be for the
best interests of Nebraskans?" is the
first question asked by The Journal
when called upon to decide. Every
Nebraskan should do his best to keep
The State Journal before the people and
that best means by sending in One Dol
lar which will pay for the paper to Jan
uary, 1899. After you read it send it to
your friends in the east and let them
see what great things we are doing in
Nebraska. Send in your dollar to The
State Journal, Lincoln, Neb. The
sooner you send, the more papers yon
will get for your money.
