Henryt, Tilton, the popular young^republican candidate for county as^^sessor, is looking bright and sanguine^as the result of cheering and encour^^aging news from every ipiarter.

If elected he^will give the citizens of Lewis and^Clarke county an excellent and satis-^f ictory administration.
ludgeIt- H. Howey*s past legisla^^tive experience, as well as his Inti^^mate knowledge of the wants of the^state and its citizens, will render him^a most valuable member of the legis^^lature.

He will be^elected by a handsome majority.
CliffordH. Anderson's candidacy^for the legislature has aroused a de^^gree of enthusiasm among all classes^that is highly complimentary to that^voung and pooular business man.

The signs point to election^by a very complimentary majority,^which will be a worthy tribute be-^-towed upon a most worthy young^man.

Ofthe young men of this city who^have taken an active part in can^^vassing the state in the interest of^Helena for the capital none deserve^more credit than our popular and ris^^ing young attorney Albert [.

CharlesHorn and William Ham are^the republican nominees for consta^^ble. Both are good men, well and fa^^vorably known and they deserve the^support of our citizens.

JudgeH. V. Woodman, who has so^long and acceptably filled the posi-^Mm of justice of the peace, is admir^^ably adapted to the position.

WilliamP. Whitaker, republican^candidate for public administrator, is^a gentleman worthy and capable to^fill that responsible position, and our^citizens will do well to see that he is^elected. A business man, of strict in^^tegrity and upright purpose, he will^conduct the office in an eminently^satisfactory manner to all parties in^^terested. He should be elected by a^large majority.

Astern 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 affair* of^state, to seize the public offices that^thev may thrive and grow -ileek 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 sei/.e by force the af^^fairs of government.
Thusconfronted and threatened^there is but one thing for good citi^^zens^ republicans^to do To the res^^cue of the nation they must come.^Route the combined enemies of good^government and law and order they^must United to do so th^y must l^e^and so remain. Imbued with valor.
patriotismand loyalty to country, re^^publicans must stand as a solid pha^^lanx against the assaults of the com^^bined 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 be ex^^pected to do their duty, their whole^duty and nothing short of their duty.^Onto victory! Death to democracy^and populism! Stand by the ticket^from top to bottom!

JudgeDecius 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 Benjamin F.^Wade, who tor years was a striking^and conspicuous figure in national^politics. Karly 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 tin- con^^stitution of the United States, which^secured to every citizen the right to^vote, irrespective of race, color or^previous condition.
Hewas appointed chief justice of^Montana March 1^, 1871. by President^Orant, reappointed by President^Orant, by President Hayes and by^President Arthur, and served as chief^justice for sixteen years and until ^he^2d of May, 18HT. His decisions in the^supreme court are contained in the^first six volumes of Montana Reports.
Helaid the foundation of Montana^law and may justly be called the^father of Montana jurisprudence.
Heis no politician, and accepted^of his nomination to the legislative^assembly with the greatest relutance.
Sincehis 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 we.I qualified for this task, for he^is well acquainted from his long ex^^perience on the bench, ami as a law^^yer in practice, with all the statutes^of the territory and state and with all^the decisions of the courts.
JildfeWade will make a most valu^^able member of ii;^ 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 presevce in the legis^^lature would be a guarantee that^there would be no repetition of the^deplorable occurrences of two years^ago, if by voice and action such^schemes could be thwarted. He 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 body, which would^not only rellect credit upon the peo^^ple 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 constituency.
