AS TO OUR CANDIDATES.
The almost unanimous nomina
tion upon first ballot of E. B. War
ner for count' treasurer is strong-
evidence of Iris fitness for that of
fice, and of his personal popularity.
The nominee has been a resident of
North Platte for sixteen years, and
during- that time has been regarded
as one of our most public-spirited
citizens. He has ever been closely
identified with the republican part)
as an active worker and adviser.
For two terms he filled the office of
city clerk, and for an equal time
was mayor of the city, transacting
the business of both positions in a
creditable and satisfactory manner. ,
In 1892 he was selected as one of the
presidential electors from this con
gressional district, and in the Min
neapolis convention cast his vote
for that grand republican, "William
McKinley. Mr. Warner is a good
accountant, and well qualified foi

and has represented several lodge

and his popularity make him a can
didate that Mr. Buchanan will not
be able to defeat.

a vocation he has since steadily for-
lowed. He is the possessor of a lib

who have been acquainted with him
for years freely admit that he is ex

The republican party never for
gets the men who stood by this na
tion in the dark and perilous hours
of the civil war, and for its nominee
tor sheriff the convention selected
an old soldier in the person of Wiley
Matthews, of Dickens precinct.
Mr. Matthews was among the first
farmers to locate in Dickens pre
cinct, having settled there in "the
early part of the 80s. Somewhat
retiring in disposition, Mr. Mat
thews has not perhaps gained so
wide an acquaintance in the county
as some others, but where known
he is very popular because he de
serves it. Having the courage to
face the cannon and bayonet in the
hour that tried men's souls the
thirty- years which have elapsed
since that time have not dimmed
that bravery, and he will not shirk
duty in dealing with vicious or un
ruly prisoners which may fall into
his hands while transacting- the
duties of the office to which he is
certain to be elected. Mr. Matthews
is a man possessing lots of good
common sense, is a good political
campaigner and will carry the fight
into the enemy's camp with avigor
ousness that means success. He
will be a particularly strong candi
date among the old soldier element.
In nominating W. C. Elder for
cierK or tne aistnct court, a posi-j
tion which lie has held with credit
for six years, the convention not
only recognized another old soldier,
but the services of a competent
official as well. Mr. Elder is so
well known in the county that he
needs no extended introduction at
our hands. His record as an of
and no candidate can be put up by
the opposition who will be so well
fitted for tbeMjes of the office as
is Judge Ray."

President Cleveland, his two attorney
generals, Oluey and Harmon, Secretary
Morton and all others concerned therein
have decided that the national antitrust
law is no good. As one cabinet officer
said, "Yon can drive a herd of cattle
through it." The supreme court has
decided already m cases brought before
it that the law is unsound, go that the
president and his cabinet in coming to
that conclusion but follow in tho foot
steps of the highest law authority in
the land. President Cleveland has
taken a deep personal interest in this
beef investigation. He has gone over
all the proofs in detail and is absolutely
satisfied as to the identity and guilt of ha
combine and its membership and is as
eager as anybody that the -wrongdoers
be made to smart.
It was for this reason that the deter
mination to placo the prosecution in the
hands of the Illinois state authorities
was reached, the chief offenders having
their headquarters in Chicago. Among
others whose names are prominent on
the list thus suspected of violating tho
antitrust law are those of the members
of tho firm of 'Nelson, Morris & Co.,

Swift & Co.
There aro others besides these, and it
is the understanding that tho evidence
collected by the agricultural depart

includes at least nine of the big packing
