NOT POLITICS-JUST PLAIN FACTS
There was a time when everyone was "hidebound" in political beliefs and actions. Such people voted for a candidate because he belonged to this or
that party they did not consider personal qualifications as so valuable a political asset as party belief. Because of this attitude on the parts of the voters
many candidates were defeated who were farmore able to fill the positions to which they aspired than were the men who were elected. It is different to
day. Voters take a broader view of elections than in other times. They realize that when they elect a man to an office that they are hiring a servant to
look after their personal affairs. They know that there is both good and bad in each party they are discriminating enough to choose the good of each of
the parties and reject the bad. Especially is this the case in county politics where the candidates are personally known by the voters. Below are intro
duced to you four of the leading candidates listed on the Republican ticket. They are men, however, who are so well qualified by past experience, so suc
cessful in each of their undertakings, so well thought of by their hosts of friends in the county, that they almost seem to be representatives of all par
tiesnot of any one body. A keen investigation of the lives of each man will reveal to you how well qualified he is to be your servant.

JUDGE ROBISON
-FOR-
COUNTY JUDGE
Democrats as a rule pride
themselves as being followers
of Jeff ersonian simplicity and
the perfect equality of all
American citizens, as against the Hamiltonian
idea of retaining all officers during lifetime. Even
Mr. Bryan, to whom all democrats point as the
great leader of the democracy, declared to a Col
umbus audience a few years ago that the Hamil
ton theory was essentially wrong. Yet it has been
practiced for many years in the realm of the so
called democratic ranks of Platte county. The
present democratic candidate for county judge
has held his present position for a period equal to
one-third of the lifetime of the average human
being, and still asks to be retained, notwithstand
ing the cloud now hovering over him and his
record. This also in face of the fact that more
than sixty per cent of the voters of his own party
voted against him at the primary on August 15th.
There is only one true course left open for the
voters of Platte county, and that is to give an
overwhelming majority to Judge Robison, against
whom either as a man or as as official no finger
of suspicion has ever been raised.

DANIEL SCHRAM
CANDIDATE FOR COUNTY TREASURER
There it not another man in the county that enjoys to a greater extent the confidence of his
fellow-citizens than does Daniel Schram. His long experience in the business life of Columbus, has
made him hundreds of friends, who will stand by him now when he comes before them for the first
time in his life to ask political preferment Not only has his genial personality and his up-to-date
business methods appealed to all with whom he has had to deal in his business experience of a
quarter of a century, but he will carry the same affable and courteous disposition and business
acumen into the county treasurer's office. You are your own best friend. Stand up for your own
interests by employing a business man to look after your public funds.

JOHN S. HAYES
-FOR
COUNTY CLERK
John S. Hayes, nominated for county
clerk at the republican primaries, August 1 5,
1911, is conceded to be the strongest candi
date the party could select. His nomination
came from the rank and file, without the aid of any clique or combi
nation. Mr. Hayes is a young farmer, of Columbus township, has
never asked for nor held a public office, and is thoroughly competent
for the position to which he now aspires. In addition, the time is now
ripe for the people to divorce themselves from the fourth and fifth
term idea, and inject new blood, into the public service. This can
be done by casting your ballot for John S. Hayes.
GIDEON BRAUN
-FOR-
C0UNTY SUPERINTENDENT
Gideon Braun, republican candidate for
county superintendent, was born in Saunders
county, Nebraska, twenty-seven years ago.
With the exception of about three years in his
early childhood, spent in California, his entire
life-time has been spent in Nebraska, and twenty-three years of it in
Platte county. He is a graduate of the Nebraska state normal school,
at Wayne, and has done work at Peru and at Fremont. His teaching
experience has been confined to Platte county, and although he has
been offered positions as principal in town schools both in and out of
the county, he has preferred to remain with the rural schools. He
not only believes in practical and thorough work in all schools, but in
his own schools has made a success of the methods he has applied.
