THE ISSUE IN PLATTE COUNTY.
l"r- " i--u 'Kt'-n th- ji)if of Platte county thLr fall L
r:. u-i-v t : a . .:. bu?inelike administration of county affair
ami tii Utructi'n f th- -jmi1- system.
I ..u-u It -ur tax receipt and you will see that your taxes
havr- n.,t only imwn. iut that by far the greater part goes for
twenty and local purpose:-.
What L- die cau-e of high taxes in Platte county? Have we
a new court houe or other improvement- proportionate to the in
crease in voor taxe?
Then where has your money gone? Ask Supervisors Ernst
ami Bender who have overdrawn their legal salaries more than
c-iOO in a single year. A-k the democratic newspapers of Platte
countv which for years have been paid 2o per cent more than the
leza rate for official printing- Ask the Columbus Telegram which
i"- rears has secured the county printing on a fraudulent contract
through secret understanding-" with the county clerk. Ask the
sfeeruf and the county judge who are pledged under the spoils sy
tem to serve their friends and the democratic press tirst. and the
public afterwards. Look up the expensive litigation of Platte
eountv. inauiruenued to secure fee? and favors for court officers and
their friends. In these things you will find a partial explanation
of hiirh taxes in Platte county.
What L- the remedy? First kill on the spoils system at the
base of thl- extravagance and corruption. Then turn out of office
the Ernsts and Benders and those who defend them. And then
elect men like the republican candidates who are pledged to serve
the people Srst and their friends and the newspapers afterwards.
What tht- taxpayers of Platte county demand, democrats and
republican.- alike. L- a strict business administration of county af
afihir? by men who know neither, republican nor democrat, friend
aor f . rich nor poor in the performance of their duty.
Business and not politics is the issue.

J nominated for the office of justice of the snpreme court. That court car-
nes with it the power of life and death, the disposition of property of any
man in the state and it is the most responsible position that can be tend-
ered or civen to any man m th state. I appreciate the responsibility of
J this position.
" I want to say. too. that if elected, which I eipect to be. I shall know
neither rich or poir. neither corporation or individual, and that so far as
in me lies. I will dispense justice with even hand to every man within the
J borders of the state.
I am told that your committee on resolutions will report to this con-
ventioc. declaim:: acamst the issuance of free transportation by the rail-
roads in this state. I want to say to you that I am m hearty accord with
J Further. I understand that they have endorsed our president, and I
