The Salina Herald has a double head
to an editorial which is rather sugges

Humbugs. Allen G. Thurman's speech

right but we are inclined to think the
editor "builded better than he knew."
The Democrats now claim that they
are not for free trade. The history of
their party is more truthful than their
claim. In the 1S48 platform they con
gratulate themselves "on the noble im
pulse given to the cause of free trade
by the repeal of the tariff of 1842."

The County Ticket.
The Republicans of Dickinson county
have, in a harmonious and enthusiastic
convention, placed before the people a
ticket that cannot help but win respect
and favor. There is not a man on the
ticket but who can be heartily and con
scientiously supported by the party.
Every candidate, without exception,
deserves the confidence and support of
his fellow Republicans and will get it
As Mr. Robinson said in the conven
tion Saturday, while some parts of the
county would have liked exceedingly
well to have seen their man win, still
now they will shake hands and go in
with a will to pile up a big majority for
the Republican nominees. The gentle
men who were competitors with the
fortunate nominees have the sympathy
of their hundreds of friends over the
defeat; but all could not gain the race,
and as the contest was from beginning
to end a straightforward good-natured
one those who were beaten can and
will work for the success of the ticket.
Of the gentlemen nominated only a
brief sketch can here be given:
C. C. Bitting, the next county attor
ney of Dickinson county, is a rising
young lawyer of the county capital.
He is a graduate of one of the best law
schools that the east affords and has
worked his way up in the profession
with never a downward step. His
practice here in Abilene, where for sev
eral years he has been located, has in
creased flatteringly and he is looked
a as an eminently safe advisor in
legal matters. He is, moreover, a good
orator, being in demand all through
the county when a political meeting is
in progress. Affable, genial and atten
tive to duty, he will make an able offi
cial and one faithful to the trust im
posed in him.
B. W. Peck, the nominee for this
important position, has been for years
a leader in the politics of South Dick
inson. A farmer, increasing his earn
ings by teaching school winters, he has
made his influence felt through a wide
neighborhood. He has always been a
staunch supporter of Republicanism
and Republican principles and is known
throughout the county as the "Repub
lican war-horse of Jefferson township."
Mr. Peck is yet a young man to have
so high an honor as the probate judge
ship conferred upon him but he is well
qualified both by education and natural
ability for the position and will have
no difficulty in snowing under his op
ponent by a handsome majority.
No worthier a man than W. S. An
derson could have been selected for this
position. His whole life has been one
of devotion to his country and it is fit
that he should have adequate recogni
tion. During the war he fought nobly
that the Union might be preserved. In
that struggle he received wounds that
have entitled him to the Nation's boun
ty ever since. For two terms as Coun
ty Surveyor he proved his capability to
fill a public office acceptably and now
that he is about to begin another
important trust, he will be found still
faithful and competant. Mr. A. is an
upright, earnest christian gentleman,
against whom not a word can be spoken.
He will be elected triumphantly.
It is not saying too much to state
that J. S, Fcrdmore than deserved the
hearty and unanimous renomination
accorded hun. He has-proven himself
the right man in the right place during
the past two years. Never have the
schools of the county been in a more
prosperous condition or the public gen
erally so well satisfied with the school
work as at present. Mr. Ford has a
happy faculty of making friends every
where and while he is to the patrons a
wise governor and overseer he is to the
teachers a fnend, counselor and ad
visor. He will receive his re-election
by the largest majority ever known in
Dickinson county; as we have said be
fore. , we doubt if there is a man who
will take the chances of certain defeat
by running against him.
The 6Sth district will be represented
this winter by the polished orator, able
lawyer and accomplished legislator,
Hon. J. R. Burton. Not only is his
fame as broad and wide as Kansas but
he is known even to the Atlantic coast,
having been one of three men selected
from the Sunflower State to assist in
the Maine campaign. His influence is
shown by the fact that Abilene is the
only place in the "West that Mr. Blaine
has promised to visit, and this through
Mr. Burton's efforts. He has already
made a brilliant record in the Legisla
ture,having been chosen speaker pro tem
of the House, almost the highest honor
it could confer. The overwhelming ma
jority given him at the primaries is but
an earnest of what the November elec
tion will show. Dickinson county is
proud of Mr. Burton and he will not
fail to do us honor in the Legislative
halls at Topeka.
J. W. Gihson is an esteemed farmer
and business man of South Dickinson.
"When the people of the 69th district
chose him for their nominee they did
well. He has been a stalwart Republi
can since early manhood and will not
fail to carry high the banner of the
party. Mr.G. is, too.an old soldier and a
member of the G. A. R. He fought
with distinguished bravery to protect
his country and will now receive recog
nition. As a citizen and farmer he is
well known as being one of the best in
the county and the farmers of his dis
trict may feel assured that in sending
him to the Legislature they send one
who will protect their interests.
COMMISSIONER, SECOND DISTRICT.
J. W. Baker has proven himself well
worthy another term as county com
missioner. He has looked after the
county's affairs as though they were
his own and has given them his most
careful and considerate attention. The
responsible position which he holds has
never been more ably filled and the
second district could not afford to spare
his presence on the board. His sterling
qualities as a business man make him
eminently fitted for the position and
liis'election is a foregone conclusion.

He is a large land owner owns twenty
five hundred acres in this cuiniy, most
of which is among the finest and most

He has a large uumber of tenants on
his farms. I am informed by an old
neighboi of Mr. Streeter's and who has
been a member of the Board of Super
visors representing Streeter's township,
that Streeter was the first landlord in
that section of the country to raise the
rent of his tenants from one-third to
two-fifths of the crops.
He is a large stockholder in the
