Frank Widhalm, Herman Wendt and

of Madison county, Jos. Hasohke of

petitioned Judge Munger of
tbe United States court at Omaha pray
ing that proceedings in bankraptcy.be
issued-against P. E.. MoKillip of this
"place. ' The petition waa filed' with
Judge. Monger Wednesday by Attorney
B. P. Drake of this place as attorney for.
the petitioners. " For eome time it baa
been -uite. generally known that Mr.
McKiilip has been in serious financial
troubles, but-bis friends have '.lived in
hopes' that he would find some, satisfac
tory Way out of his trpubla The Demo-,
crat has refrained from referring, to the
.matter ib any way for the reason we did'
not believe that it was public property.
But now that 'the climax baa been reach
ed we feel that something from-us.is due'
our .readers, yet we feel that: Mr. MoKil
lip, who baa more at stake than anybody
else,- should nave a chance to state bin
position.- 'Consequently,.-lh Democrat
.editor called ph-bim for an- interview and
in substance, he .had the following to say:
"Some" of." my creditors, becoming im
patient,- have" filed bankruptcy proceed
ings against me, .and thus tied' my bands,
so as to prevent' me -from doing any bus
iness for'wo or three weeks .until-the
case can . be heard. 8hould -the court
adjudge me a b'ankrOpt, then 'the men
who I. owe would elect a trustee tq take,
charge of. my .property sell it-4nd' pay
my debts. I have nO fault to find with
.the creditors, who have commehoedpror
ceedings, as I have. been. unable to meet
paymenU-due them atmaturity. Should
my property fail to pay my debts inf oil,
I; will-sUrt again -and, .eventually pay
every, man who I .owe' a -'dollar. I am
in formed that'there have been some wild
rumors d.ut about my running away, and
you may say emphatically that I have no
definite plans for moving, and-that any
move! may make .will.be with the sole
object -of- getting into a' place. where 1
can" .'make, sufscient money to pay my
debts, to tbelast. dollar. " No man will
eventually' lose a. cent and all I ask is.
prdinarjr charity and forbearance until I
can. st "on" my feet again. I am more
than grateful for tbe consideration which
the men. whom I owe have thus' tar
shown, and- this as.'atfesgtbened my
resolve that every creditoV shall jbe paid
in"' full; I-will remain in Humphrey at
least for the preeentrand, should a trus
tee be 'a"Kolatew-;ar"iny-propertr,' will
tender him my services ffee of cost in
disposing of.-same-and -winding, up my
estate. r Should. there...be i shortage, I
will then lay plans for" making sufficient'
money to pay for it, arid with that" endin
view, may possibly move,' :h'ut- tliat is a
matter for future ..consideration.."
' Those who krow. Mr".. McKiilip best
ares satisfied that he will tulfill. every
-promise he makes-in .the above, and we
all know he; has the ability to do so.

Out of four candidates for city office?,
the republicans succeeded in electing
the councilman from the Fourth ward,
Julius Nichols. ' With the redistricting
of. the city there was some- uncertainty
as to what the outcome in the different
wards would b, the Third' being con
sidered a sure republican ward and the
Fourth doubtful. But tbe result in
these two wards was just opposite what
was expected, Mr. Dickinson, republican.
ih the Third ward,. being defeated by 41
and Julius Nichols, republican, in the
Fourth ward, being elected ..by 35.- In
the First ward Otto Kunimer received
.votes, cutting Lacnnits majority down
to 70, which is a splendid showing,, con
sidering' that the' ward is -solidly", demo-,
cratic. .-."" . " ".
Fred Gregorius defeated George Fair'
child for water- commissioner by 94.'
- The result; in the Fourth ward should
be an incentive for the republicans to
organize!; as it 'demonstrates, what organ
ization will do, tbe recul.t in 'this ward
being due to the organization and work
of the Fourth ward republican club.
