Eiiitoi: JoostNti.. The Republican convention lit a honored me with the nomination of County Judge, and as I was not present, to eypre.-s my views upon th issue, that have been made prominent, I take this method to an nounce some of the principles that will govern my oilicial conduct, should I he elected. I hate noticed, with much satisfac tion, your efforts to correct some of the abuses that have grown up in the man agement of our count affairs, and I hope the people have been aroused to the danger of this tendency to squander public fluids and prostitute officials po sition to personal and political advan tage The "Railroad Pass" question: While a railroad pries may neither be given nor accepted as a hrile, more than any other form of courtesy or favor from an individual, yet it is a growing evil with a dangerous tendency, and to avoid any po.-tible undue influence, and hold "the scales of justice" impartially between the rich and poor, 1 propose to re fuse such favors during the campaign and my term of office if elected. Legal Printing: I regard it an injus tice to litigants and an abuse of official prerogative, as well as a corrupting pol itical practice, to give the publication of all legal notices and official proceedings to some party paper, as a compensation for political services, regardless of the wishci of interested parties or value to the public: but I believe that the party requiring Mich service should have the right to select the pap r, and. if elected I shall comply with all such requests; provided the paer selected fulfills the letter ami spirit or the law.

I BLOWS STRUCK Democratic Committee Has Stormy Session Republican Committee Confident Demo crat Criticises Howard's Pass Propaganda Sheriff Carrig and Others Hold Passes. The committees of the two political parties held meetings last Friday af ternoon to plan the approaching cam paign. The republican committee met at the Journal office and the democratic committee at the court house. All the republican candidates ex cept Bruce Webb and Dr. Morris were present at the deliberations of the republican committee and a spirit of confidence and enthusiasm and harmony pervaded the meeting. There was a general feeling that the republican candidates by adopting a Roosevelt platform on local issues in IMatte county, declaring themselves against the grail and corruption which are bleeding the tax payers, would attract the same large vote that went to Roosevelt and Hughes last fall. The meeting over in the court house was different. There, it is rumored. the Howard Ernst Bender faction of the committee locked horns with the Becher Boettcher Bucher fac tious, and such was the bitterness that at the close of the meeting the lie was passed and blows were struck. The main thing which seems to arouse the democratic candidates and the democratic committee, is the Tel egranfs persistency in dodging the only real issue in the campaign, name ly, the corruption in county affairs and consequent high county taxes, and its equal persistency in trying to drag the pass issue to the foreground, when everybody knows that several of the present democratic county offi cers ride on passes or free transporta tion. A member of the democratic com mittee was heard to remark after the meeting: "Why the devil don't Howard have something to say in his paper about the printing trust and illegal fees for printing and supervi sor's salaries? Those are the things that are driving good democrats from us every day. But because Howard is mixed up himself in these deals he is straining himself to force the pass issue or any thing to shift the public attention from things that our candi dates have really got to meet. And he ought to know better than to talk the 'pass business.' He knows that two or three of our boys ride on free transportation and he knew it when he made that grand stand bluff' at the Columbus Journal denvinjr that any democratic nominee was rid ing on a pass. He ought to have known that the Journal would call his bluff and make him take water on that proposition just as it has driven him to the woods in the discussion of local issues. Now we will be in a h of a Gx when it is known that Howard knew Sheriff Carrig held a pass at the time he said that no democratic nomi nee had a pass. No one will believe anything in the editorial columns of the Telegram, if he keeps on. Be sides, Carrig doesn't want him to lie for him. Like every other man that holds a pass, he can show a contract which calls for certain return services and he would rather make a clean breast of it to the voters, even if it does knock all the thunder out of our fool platform, than to play the hypo crite and then have the Journal show up the facts. It's a bad mess the Tel egram is getting us into. With such management on our part its no won der the republicans are confident of success." Thus start out the two committees for the fall campaign. The republi cans united cheerful, confident. The democrats, disrupted, dejected, dis couraged. CHTOCH SE1VICES CONGREGATIONAL -Subject for morning sermon, -"Spiritual . Liberty Evening.

Baxter of Orleans Ne braska, was relieved of an expensive pocketbook containing about 12 and a railroad ticket last Saturday night at the U. P. station. A man giving the name of John Wilson, a professional traveler, got the pocketbook and our industrious police officers "got" him within an hour after the theft. Mrs. Baxter had laid her pocketbook on a seat in the waiting room and left it while she looked after her little child playing about the depot ground. Dur ing her absence Wilson who had been hanging about the waiting room several hours for just such an opportunity got in his work. The police had been at tracted to Wilson earlier in the day ly his suspicions actions and several per sons had noticed his disappearance from the waiting room just before the woman missed her money and were able to des crile him to the officers. When caught, Wilson had $10.50 on bis person and promised to cash a time check which he claimed he held against the U. P. Co. and pay the balance. He was taken before Justice O'Brien on Monday and after pleading gnilty to the charge, was given thirty-days in jail. Clearing Sale of Winter Un derwear ami Dry CJoods.

Another, Dr. McChiren, one of the half hacks is a graduate of Creighton medi cal college and plated on that team The North Benders could not gain by end plays and had to use line bncks and while Columbus held their opponents well their bucks were so heavy that ihe pushed for short gains.

Columbus was the scene this week of a pretty romance that ended as happily as a novel from a master writer. The principals in the romance were Anton Johnson, age 22. a bright young ninn who is clerking in the Corbett res taurant, aud Miss Fern I. Fauble,age 17, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Fauble of this city. The two young people met about two months ago. It was a case of love at tirst sight. Time was too slow for such love and they decided to elope and get married. Their opportunity came one night last week when they attended a dance in the country. They started in the direetion of Madison, but the young lady's father, apprised of the elopment. started a few hours later. They were overtaken near Madison and came back to Columbus, where with the father's consent, were married yesterday by Judge Ratterman. The young people are both bright and they express themselves as happy at the outcome of the affair. They will con tinue their residence here. Base Ball Seasoi Bads. The Colnmbns base ball team closed the season last Saturday night with its game with Belgrade, winning in a ten inning contest with the score standing 7 to fi. The season ends with a email sum in the treasury and with the majority of games to the credit of Colnmbns. Man ager Corbett, ably assisted by Dr. Mc Mabon as secretary, deserves great cred it for the excellent amusement they have provided for the lovers of base ball in this city. Onr boys have played clean ball, and considering that practically all of them work every day. they have play ed exceptionally good ball. If onr boys could have started the season with one or two salaried players like Jack Corbett the results would have been better. It is believed that the re cord made this year, promises a mnch letter season next year. J. R. Carter returned from Norfolk to diy. Mrs. Henry Rsgatz, Jr., delightfully entertained twelve friends last night in honor of her cousin, Mi.-s Nellie Hughes who will return soon to her home in Wales.
