THE HOUSE CLEAXERS.
The Journal takes pride in presenting
the republican candidates to the voters
of Platte county. They are a group
of men to inspire confidence. They are
pledged to destroy the spoils system,
which working chiefly through the offi
ces of county judge and sheriff and
county clerk has been stealing away the
property owner's money in high taxes.
Voters are all agreed that a "house
cleaning" is needed at the court house.
Here are the men pledged to do it. Give
them a trial.
w. l.. SMITH.
W. L. Smith of Monroe, the repub
lican candidate for county treasurer,
was horn in Ohio in the fifties and
came to Platte county nearly thirty
years ago. He received a good com
mon school education in the east and
has had considerable business exper
ience, having been engaged in the
mercantile business and the grain bus
iness iu Monroe for several years. At
the present time he is farming. Mr.
Smith has the best endorsement that
any man can have, namely the ei -dorsement
of the people among whom
he has lived so many years. Mr.
Smith is amply qualified to perform
the duties of treasurer.
J. d. stii:i.
J. Dayton Stires, the republican
candidate for county judge, was born
in New Jersey in 1853. His early
education was received in the common
schools and an academy in New Jer
sey, in the seventies he came west,
studied law in Iowa University, grad
uating from that institution in 1SS2,
first in his class obtaining a prize for
hi? marked scholarship. He practic
ed law and was engaged successfully
in the banking business a't
Cedar Kapids, Neb., for several years,
coming to Columbus seventeen ycar.
ago, since which time he has practiced
law successfully in Platte county.
Besides having the legal qualifications
without which no man is qualified to
perform the important legal duties of
county judge, Mr. Stires' reputation
for strict honesty, his high moral
ideals and his even agreeable temper
ament peculiarly fit him to look aftei
the complex probate matters which
come to that office from the hand of
the widows and orphans.
Da. H. G. Mourns.
Dr. II. G. Morris of Crcston, republi
can candidate for coroner is practically
a Platte county product and he has all
the qualities of a sure winner. All he
needs is to meet the voter?. They will
do the rest, lie came to Creston at the
age of eleven with his father who had
been county surveyor of Frontier coun
ty. He graduated from the Creston
high school, attended the Chicago medi
cal college one year and then entered
the Omaha medical college from which
he graduated with honors three years
later. Dr. Morris is a young man who
has pushed his own way to the front.
He is as popular where he is known as
he is modest. He is a favorite with the
base ball boys throughout this part of
the state, where he is known as one of
the best pitchers in Nebraska. Dr.Mor
ris.Iike his popular young running mate
Bruce Webb, will draw practically a
solid vote from the north end of the
county, not only for himself but for the
rest of the republican ticket for which
he is willing to vouch.
Bruce Webb, republican candidate for
sheriff, was cnt out to win in anything
he cares to go after, and he is as sure to
be elected sheriff as the democratic
press of Platte county is to fail to pub
lish the record on which the democratic
candidates claim to stand. Bruce Webb
is one of a large family of .boys, who for
thirty-six years, practically all his life,
has lived in Nebraska. He has a good
common school education, backed by
wide experience in the real estate and
sale business, and directed by one of the
most generous, honest and good nalured
dispositions that ever graced any man.
Wherever Bruce Webb is known he is a
favorite. The Madison county people
came to Platte county to coax him to
act as marshal of the day at the Madison
county fair, simply because they liked
him after his long residence in Madison.
Every young man becomes .his fast
friend upon meeting him once, and his
bright, courageous face inspires the
confidence at once of older men. Bruce
is farming near Creston, but his sale
business has reached such proportions
that he doesn't have time for the farm.
in tact no auctioneer in AeDrasKa is
covering a larger territory.
Ed. Lusienski, republican candidate
for county clerk, will bring as many
qualifications to this office as any other
man on the ticket. Though a young
man, he has had training which pecu
liarly fits hiai for the office. Being of
Polish birth, he could serve the large

they didn't begin the game earlier ia
The star players for the sixth graders
were Drawbeugh, Ernst and Galley .while
Baker, Zinnecker. Nels Nelson, Wbaley
and Weslbrook did the big business for
the winners. No bones were brok
en but several shins and peeled noses
are visible among the players.
Ed Gluck was time keeper and referee
