effective and everywhere he was
greeted with a hearty welcome.

For 'ounty Attray.
The republicans of this county have
nominated for county attorney that
sterling and capable lawyer, Hon. S.
A. lalliet. Mr. Balliet is so well and
favorably known to the citizens of
this county that it is deemed unnec
essary to go into details as to his
qualifications, standing, popularity,
etc. The fact that he has before
filled the important position to which
he now aspires in a manner that re
flected credit upon himself and gave
satisfaction to his constituents, is all
that need be here referred to. Of a
quick, bright and sunny tempera
ment, his popularity is universal. Mr.
Balliet is an able attorney and will
bring to the position for which he is a
candidate a ripe experience as a
fearless prosecuting attorney who
will conduct the office from the start
in the best interest of the state. Mr.
Ballliet is making an active and
thorough canvass with a view to roll

recorder, is rated among the most
popular, best known and most highly
respected citizens of Lewis and Clarke
county. Space does not permit a re
view of his active and useful life.
neither is it deemed necessary to
present the same in these columns,
far every leaf of the volume is well
known to our citizens, who have on
more than one occasion had the op
portunity to show their esteem by
electing him to positions of honor and
trust by significantly large majorities.
Gov. Tooker has served most accepta
bly for the past several years as
clerk and recorder of this county,
and to the entire satisfaction of a
most exacting constituency. There
is no office in the county requiring
greater exactness of detail and more
careful and faithful supervision of
matters and things than that so
faithfully. conscientiously and ac
ceptably presided over by Mr. Tooker.
His candidacy for re-election meets
with the hearty and responsive ap

our citizens, and his supporters and
admirers predict that he will be re
elected by a larger majority than
ever before. If re-elected, he will
strive in the future as in the past to
give the same efficient, business-like

The Afro-American Republican
club, President .. P. Ball, Sr., in the
chair, had a large and enthusiastic
meeting last Wednesday night. Cole's
band was in attendance and discoursed
excellent music. The club attended
to routine business, discussed the Is
sues of the campaign, etc.. etc., after
which the club was entertained by an
able and spicy address by Col. It. A.
Hawkins, of Marysvi:le. The address
was both instructive and interesting,
and was frequently punctured with
hearty applause. The colonel was in
one of his happy veins, and the club
regretted that his acquaintance had
not been made earlier in the cam
paign. Judge II. F. Woodman also
delivered an interesting address.

A stern duty confronts the repub
licans of this county and state. Face
to face they stand to democracy and
yopulism-two allies ever ready to
fuse when political advantage can be
gained thereby to either one or both
of said parties. Opposed to the re
publican hosts--representatives of
progress, sound money, prosperity,
protection, plenty, business activity
and the general welfare of the whole
country-are the demoralized, shat
tered, panic stricken and bedraggled
democratic cohorts, eager and ready,
though unfit and incompetent to
grapple successfully with affairs of
state, to seize the public oftices that
they may thrive and grow sleek and
tat to again fasten themselves to the
vitals of the nation and gnaw away
thereat. Also opposed to the valor
ous republican hosts and ready to
pounce down upon them are the om
nivorous, blatant and wild-eyed popu
listic horde, eager and ready to mob
like rush in and seize by torce the af
fairs of government.
Thus confronted and threatened
there is but one thing for good citi
zen--republicaus-to do. To the res
cue of the nation they must comer.
Route the combined enemies of good
government and law and order they
must. United to do so they must be
and so remain. Imbued with valor.
iatriotism and loyalty to country, re
publicans must stand as a solid pha
lanx against the assaults of the com
hined enemy who seek to grasp the
prosperity of the nation and choke
out its life. In this emergency--in
this trying hour-all republicans are
called on to rally to the standard of
their party and falter not. As men
good, true and tried they shall he ex
pected to do their duty, their whole
duty and nothing short of their duty.
On to victory' Death to democracy
and populism: Stand by the ticket
from top to bottom!

Judge l)ecius S. Wade, one of the
republican legislative nominees for
Lewis and Clarke county, is a native
of Ohio and a nephew of the late
United States Senator lienjamin F.
Wade, who tor years was a striking
and conspicuous figure in national
politics. Early in life, after having
graduated and entered upon the prac
tice of his chosen profession, the law,
Judge Wade was elected a member of
the Ohio senate, where he took an
active part in the stirring political
issues of the day and helped to frame
the fifteenth amendment to the con
stitution of the UInited States, which
secured to every citizen the right to
vote, irrespective of race, color or
lie was appointed chief justice of
Montana March 17, 1871, by President
Grant, reappointed by President
Grant, by President Hayes and by
President Arthur, and served as chief
justice for sixteen years and until the
Sd of May, 1887. His decisions in the
supreme court are contained in the
first six volumes of Montana Reports.
He laid the foundation of Montana
law and may justly be called the
father of Montana jurisprudence.
lie is no politician, and accepted
of his nomination to the legislative
assembly with the greatest relutance.
Since his retirement from the bench
he has spent two years in codifying
the Statutes of Montana. Our stat
utes stand in great need of being
overhauled and the matter is of such
urgency that immediate action should
be had in the premises. Judge Wade
is wedl qualified for this task, for he
is well acquainted from his long ex
perience on the bench, and as a law
yer in practice, with all the statutes
of the territory and state and with all
the decisions of the courts.
.Judge Wade will make a most valu
able member of ti; legislature, as
there are many very important laws
that must be enacted to carry into
effect the provisions of the constitu
tion. and his ripe experience in such
matters will aid materially to ac
complish that end. In view of the
fact that there are two United States
senators to be elected by the incom
ing legislature the very best mate
rial should only be sent as members,
and as Judge Wade is of high stand
ing, thoroughly honest and Irre
proachable, his preserce in the legis
lature would be a guarantee that
there would he no repetition of the
deplorable occurrences of two years
ago, if by voice and action such
schemes could be thwarted. lie is a
staunch republican and has been from
early age up, having voted for Abra
ham Lincoln for president. Judge
Wade Is a student and a man of let
ters, and is so thoroughly versed in
the law and the needs of our state
that his election to the legislature
would indeed be a most valuable ac
quisition to that Iotly, which would
not only reflect credit upon the peo
pie of Lewis and Clarke. but upon the
state at large. Judge Wade is popu
lar with all classes and is held in
high esteem and regard by our citi
zens, irrespective of party, and we
predict for him such an overwhelm
ing majority that the people them
selves will feel proud of the royal
manner in which true worth, ability
and fitness is recognized by a grate
ful and appreciative constituenc v.
We take pleasure in bringing be
fore our readers the name of P'aul S.
A. Bickel, the republican candidate
for county surveyor, who has been in
Helena and Montana for the last 1:l
years. He has been employed in the
different branches of engineeringi and
surveyingr for the past 18 years.
In Ohio was employed in the city of
Cleveland by the county of (uyahoga:
by the Valley railroad, Lake Shore,
Lake Erie and Western: afterwards
by the Marquette. Houghton and
Great Northern railroad as engineer:
also had charge of the water power
of the Hepublic mine in Michigan.
Since coming to Montana he ham

in its different branches. First in the
United States surveyor general's of

United States department sur-evors
in the firm of Hovey & Bickel, of this
city. We can thoroughly recommend
him as county surveyor, as he has
been over all parts of Lewis and
Clarke county. and we dare say can
give account of having been on most
every square mile of same. As there
is practically no opposition to Mr.
Bickel, he will be e.ected ), a handl
