H When asked whether ho was going
13 to be tho next sheriff, Mr. J. W. Uar-
1 Tett said: "Not if I can help myself.
' j There seems to be plenty of candidates
$ but T. II. Smith is tho man for sher-
! Iff."
: t On arriving at Richfield after the
I convention at Ogden, Judge McCarty
was met by tho local band and sere-
1 naded. Tho Judgo made a few re-
' marks in response and was heartily
. ' -clieorcd. This sounds something like
1 his liome people mean business.
J Tho Republican campaign will be
opened on Tuesday, Sept. 30, by a big
yy at Wellsvillc, tho home of Mr.
Wowell, Republican nomlneo for Con
gress.' It is understood that Mr. How
ell will be ono of the speakers, and
that other prominent orators of the
', State-will bo present and lend to tho
j success of tho occasion. Tho selection
of Wellsvlllo as tho place to open so
important a campaign is acompllmcnt
to Mr. Howell and his homo town, and
the citizens of that little burg will no
doubt show their appreciation by
making every effort to have tho big
.gest rally held In tho county during
tho campaign. Tho Republicans of
.tho entire county should feel deeply
interested in Mils first effort of the
, .campaign and lend their encourage
; ment and presence. A good start
. means tho battle is half won and this
i should boa rouser. The entire State
j will be watching tho affair and will be
' .influenced by this first attempt. If
tho workers In other parts of tho State
!:seo that tho Republicans of Cache
county are thoroughly allvo to tho
condition of things and working like
beavers, it will tend to arouse greater
enthusiasm and nice earnest effort
everywhere along tho line. Let tho
St-"o Committee and County Commit-
tec make known their plans and the
Republicans over the county will sup
port them as never before.
The Democratic State committee
has rented expensive rooms in tho
Knutsford hotel for head-quarters.
And yet the Democratic Journal talks
about the Republican "barrel."
For Information as to Judge W. M.
McCarty look up tho Journal's flics of
about two years ago. Mr. McCarty
was a good man, able lawyer and com
petent Judge then.
Mr. James Mclkle of Smlhtficld,
one of the old war horses of tho Re
publican party was In Logan Satur
day. In speaking of the political sit
uation in the Smlthtlcld precinct lie
said that everything was rattier quiet,
no interest having been stirred up.
He is of the opinion thatT. II. Merrill
of Richmond is the man who will be the
Republican nominee for State Sena
tor. Mr. Melkle was very enthuslatic
In speaking of Merrill's capabilities,
etc., and for one Is willing to pit him
against Hon. W. H. King in a scries
of debates, lie said that Mr. Merrill
was not out making an active canvass
for any nomination but that If the
convention saw it's way clear to faor
him, he would put forth as great an
effort to be elected as any man. "As
an able speaker, clear thinker and
plain rcasoner, Merrill has not a peer
In the county," says Mr. Melkle.
lie also suggested that Joseph Rich
ardson would like to secure the nom
ination for representative.
Mr. MIckle did not give us tho
impression that he is wanting any
favors at this time, but we learn from
some "f his friends that he would
accept a nomination as commissioner
or representative. Mr. Melkle Is one
of these old timers who was a Repub
lican when It wasn't hardly safe to
mention it. He was ejected to a com
missioner's seat at one time and
served with credit to himself and the
county, and any recognition at tills
time would be honoring a deserving
and capable man.
From what wo can gather In con
versations with representative men
in both parties we are led to believe
that there Is a disposition on the part
of each organization to leave women
off the ticket. Personally we .know
little of the situation in this respect,
but it seems rather inconsistent for
the men to give the women a right to
vote, and then tell them they can
vote only for men. Some say "let the
women be satisfied with the deputy
ships," while others contend that If
they are worthy and capable as de
puties, they arc competent to serve
as heads of departments. Give 'cm a
show for their money any way.
Logan feels that Wellsvlllo Is want
ing too much, and the rest of the
county Is afraid Logan will want to
claim everything in sight. In the
end the otllccs will be apportioned out
as near right as possible and then each
will be sorry thcymlsjudgcdtho other.
A little careful Judgment and right
disposition on the part of those inter
ested will straighten most any little
We hear Mr. Thomas Smart Jr.
mentioned as a possible candidate for
commissioner, and his friends say ho
Is one of the best men that could be
put up. Mr. Smart Is one of the
heaviest taxpayers In Logan city, Is' a
man of unquestioned ability and con
siderable popularity and would no
doubt make an excellent race. Ills
peculiar fitness for the position will
commend Itself to the consideration
of the thinking element. He has
always been a faithful Republican,
and there are many who would like to
see him secure tho nomination, if he
will accept it.
Saturday, Oct. 11 Is the day set for
the county Convention. October 4th
would have been a more acceptable
date, but owing to tho fact that con
ference is in session at that time it
was deemed advisable to delay tho
convention a week. Since tho date
Is announced candidates will probably
bo a little more active.
In conversation with Mr. D. R.
Roberts, who Is spoken of as a fit man
for representative, he expressed him
self as being very well pleased with
tho support that Is being offered. He
has asked for no pledges, his friends
having come to him voluntarily and
offered their undivided support, and
naturally this Is very gratifying, Mr.
Roberts has ever been a resldentof this
valley, and during tho several years
he has been in business the opport
unity for coming Into contact with
men all over tho county has been
great. As a result ho would probably
be able to poll extra votes from every
section on account of his familiarity
with the people. Mr. Roberts is a
graduate of the li. Y. C, is thorough
ly capable as a man of business, is up-to-date
and progressive, and is no
doubt one of the licst men who could
be brought forward. Mr. Roberts
says that various Democrats have
offered him their support If nomin
ated. Mr. John Heudrlcksoii's stock as a
candidate for State Senator seems to
have gone up a few notches. Friends
have become so insistent that he is
seriously considering the idea of com
Ingout boldly for the place. However,
he Is first, last and always for har
mony. He believes that there Is a
chance for Republican success If theic
Is no bad feeling resulting from the
convention, and he Is anxious that
this be avoided at any cost. He has
saciltlced himself before for harmony
and is willing to do so again If necess
ary. If It Is Indicated clearly that
there is a disposition on the part
of the majority to nominate him he
will come out and no man will go to
greater lengths to be elected, provid
ing he is nominated. Mr. llcndrlck
son's ability is a recognized fact, and
his energetic, hustling qualities arc
features that attract attention to
him. At the same tlmo lie Is ono of
the heaviest taxpayers in the city and
a man In every sense worthy of the
position. He has never been recog
nized before and this will carry
George II. Thomas of Smlthlicld
was In the city on Monday and said
that lie Is certainly In tho raco for
recorder. Mr. Thomas was city chair
man at Smlthlicld four years and was
nominated for mayor at tho time and
with practically tho entlro Republi
can ticket was elected. Two years
ago he was renominated and also re
elected. Mr. Thomas has the assur
ance of considerable support from the
north end of tho county. Ho is re
cognized as a man competent and
worthyof tho otllco and if a man is to
be the nominee, he will probably
stand a fair show of being that man.
Ills service to the party has been great
and his desire for recognition Is not
out of place.
J. C. Knowles, another senatorial
aspirant, is doing very little public
talking but Is probably pulling all the
little strings known to him to secure
the nomination and if he Is as success
ful along this lino as ho has been In
winning elections for the ticket, the
other fellows had better look a "leedle
ond." Mr. Knowles when county
chairman cut down the Democratic
majority to 308, which shortly after
ran up to 1,400 under another chair
man. Mr. Knowles was again made
county chairman but waded into that
1,400 like an avalanche and relgeatcd
It to "Innocuous dessuctude," elect
ing the Rebubllcan ticket by some
thing like 300. As city chairman last
campaign he manipulated tho wires
with such success that Mayor Hansen
was elected by about 300. This ls't a
bad record and will count with many.
Mr. Knowles Is at present Road Com
missioner and in a short time will
make report to Governor Wells of the
work done and how the money was
expended. We understand that he
has accomplished great things with
the limited amount of money at his
command and that the report will
prove rather flattering to his ability
as a manager. He Is confident of
Republican success this fall if the con
vention will exercise Judgment In the
selection of men, and not make such
asses of themselves as thoy did at the
time when men were nominated and
then asked to withdraw from the
C. E. Lloyd practically announces
himself as a candidate for commission
er. As yet 1)0 has done little of the
necessary handshaking and ear tick
ling to secure the nomination but has
been urged repeatedly by friends who
recognize In him tho qualifications for
a successful commissioner. Mr. Lloyd
was for years with tho Logan Imple
ment Co. as salesman and was also
with the Sidney Stevens Implement
house. At present ho Is at tho head
of the Danlclsen Machine Shops and
has built that Institution from a
struggling infant into a mature and
successful and mature business corpor
ation. Ho halls originally from Wclls-
vlllc and has a host of Republican and
Democratic friends there who will
support him if nominated. He Is
known as a man of good Judgment,
and many personal qualities that
would put him before the people as a
candidate above the average.
II. llullcn Jr. desires us to say that
he is still In the race for tho nomin
ation for State Senator and expects
to lie In tho race until tho convention
decides as to who the nomlneo will be.
He believes that his services entitle
him to this recognition, and his iniatl
Ilea t Ions make him competent to fill
the office with credit to himself and
the county he represents. Ho Is a
graduate of the State University, has
taught school In various parts of the
county, has held positions of ti lists
acceptably, and has been brought into
contact with t he citizens of the county
in such ways as to mako him an excel
lent candidate if nominated. If the
convention decides that some other
man would bo more acceptable to the
Republicans of tho county, he Is for
that man, and i.ho himself is the
man so honored he will leave no stone
unturned to secure Ills election and
the election of tho entire ticket.
II. A. Pcdcrscn has been mentioned
for treasurer and one cnthuslastlo
friend said Hans could be county at
torney, too, If no ono else wanted It.
This olllcc seems to bo going a bogging
at present.
It Is announced that Judge W. II.
King will come to Logan on the night
of Sept. 30 and open tho Democratic
campaign, and tho following night
make his appearance In Wellsvlllo and
procccMo demolish everything antl
Democratic. No doubt the few Demo
crats that are left In Logan will rally
round the Judge and try to mako hhn
glad ho didn't stick to his first mani
festo. Laying all Jokes aside Judge
King comes as State quantity, an able
man andlpquent talker and will
command attention as a matter of
course. He should be greeted as be
comes a man occupying the exalted
position he holds and has held before
the public.
We have It upon tile best authority
that the challenge for a series of de
bates between Hon. W. 11. King and
Hon. Joseph Howell will In all prob
ability be rejected by the Republican
party managers. It Is a well known
fact that debates of this natui'O bring
out only partisans who could not and
would not be convinced of anything
by cither speaker and Is a thing that
oftentimes engenders bad feeling
among tho voters. The challenge was
made In the hope that it would be re
jected, and that voters who believe
that an orator in Congress is the es
sential thing might see In the rejec
tion something that Is detrimental to
Mr. Howell. The proposition Is absurd
and ridiculous. It seems to be the
Idea of Democratic managers and
speakers to conduct a campaign of
vituperation against the government,
and theic Is no reason why Increased
crowds should bo brought together to
hear the government maligned. We
believe the managers will be doing the
proper thing In paying no attention
to such challenges.
When King gets to Logan ho will
discover that he Is not monarch of all
ho surveys. Cache County Republi
cans may not have any walkover, but
they are going to do everything on
earth to make him wish that he had
reconsidered his reconsideration.

Building ImprotMtents.
Down on South 1st West, George
Dunbar, of the Urns of Dunbar &
Robinson, is having; built a live-room

tho appearanco of that particular
block. Jacques Ifcros. are doing the

tle below, the Thompson proporty on
West Center.
F. G. Smith's new bakery building
on the south side of tho square will
soon be completed and ready for occu
pancy. Tho plastering Is yet to be
done. If there were more of as nlco
looking buildings on that sldo of the

of the business portion of tho city
very much.
Peter Allleck's new brick residence
on South First Fast stect Is Hearing
completion. It has live rooms and Its

W. Mauglian, died at the family home
In Logan, Wednesday evening, Sopu
17, at 0:30 o'clock. She had been 111

came as a surprise and great shock to
her relatives and friends.
The deceased was a daughter of Mr.
