Mrs. Rebecca Eamcs of tho 3rd ward
Js receiving every encouragement In
Jier candidacy for the nomination for
.Recorder. Sho is so well and favor
aVlv known, and her qualifications
.anjfcrtiiess for this position so appar
cnt'Wiat she will In all probability be
placed on the ticket. Geo. II. Thomas
oSmlthllcld Is the only other aspir
ant for this nomination, but friends
of Mrs. Eamcs say that George is too
gallant to come beforo the convention
and make a fight against a lady. Mr.
Thomas bays that various persons In
Logan who are Interested In music
havo frequently urged him to return
to this city and give them and the
city the advantage of his excellent
musical training and now Is their
opportunity. George feels that If he
Is nominated he will be elected, and
that event he will come to Logan,
thus giving him an opportunity to or
ganize an excellent band and other
musical aggregations In Logan.
T. II. Merrill of Richmond states
positively that he does not want tho
nomination for State Senator. He
loes want the nomination for Repre
sentative though and will bo pleased
if his friends will stand by hin for
this. Mr. Merrill means exactly what
bo says and would prefor that thoso
l-vvho aro urging hhn for Senator would
believe what ho says and direct their
icnonjCis toward his nomination for
Jrcprflntatlvc. Mr. Merrill is a capa
ble man for cither place, but since ho
fcrcfers the one, whynotlethlmhavolt.
C. E. Llojd believes that his can
didacy for commissioner is meeting
w th faor, and from comments we
hac heard, we arc led to believe like
wise. Mr. Llojd's staunch Republi
canism, his undoubted familiarity
with every nook and cranny in the
county, his successful business experi
ence, and his popularity among Cache
county 0tcrs, commends him very
faorably to the consideration of the
convention. Mr. Lloyd Is a heavy tax
paver, honestly Interested In the
building up of the county, and there
is little doubt of his competency. He
would make an excellent race If nominated.
At t lie Republican convention next
Satiuday consldeiablc Interest will be
manifested in several of the contests,
chief among which will perhaps be
the Senatorial question. Tho lcspcct
ive candidates are all feeling satisfied
willi lesults so far, and whatever hap
pens will be satisfactory to the can
didates, and those who aie defeated
will go out of the convention deter
mined to support the winner. Since
the Logan City primaries the support
CIS of Mr. II. Ilullen, .lr., aie more
hopeful than ever, and predict that
he will be nominated on the first bal
lot. In fact sentiment seems to be
blowing in that diiectlon and the cx
chahman will no doubt lccelve the
honor. Should such be the case It
will not be unjustly bestowed, but on
the other hand will be a lcvvaid of
merit. He is a representative cltien
who pajs taxes in Logan, Richmond
and Lew 1st on; is thoioughly capable;
widely and favorably known thiough
out the county and state, and Is popu
lar with all classes. It Is tugetl that
he will make Mr. llaiber a hauler lace
than any one who could be named by
his paity, and at this writing it cer
tainly looks as though he will get the
R. 15. Thornley of Smlthfleld Is still
in the race for the nomination for
sheriff. Thornley served two terms
as Maishal of Smlthfleld and Is at
piesent a councilman. lie Is legarded
highly as a capable and honorable
man worthy of this office if the con
vention sees its way clear to nomin
The truth can no longer be sup
pressed. It must be acknowledged
and acted upon. In a lecture before
the students of the Unlveislty of Chi
cago, Chancellor K. Benjamin Andrews
of the University of Nebraska, said:
"Rachclors are moral degenerates.
From them emanates most of the sin
and shame of the world. They aie
lacking In mental and physical poise.
The life of no individual is complete
unless he or she have a life companion
of the opposite sex."
This is a burning truth. In fact, it
is four burning truths. And there was
no better place to spring them than at
a co-cducatlonal institution. It will
be more beneficial than another million
from Rockefeller. Of course bachelors
are degenerates. Anybody is a degen
erate who violates the laws of natufe,
and as Dr. Andrews continued:
"Providence Intended that men and
women should marry. The world was
made for the family and not for the
Individual. The unman led Individual
of marriageable age has no place in
society or In thescheme of the universe.
Individuals who do not foim legal ties
with the opposito sex will form illegal
ones. The world does. not want that
kind of ties. Marrlagcis a good thing.
The great men and w omen of the world
the ones whose lives were symmet
trlcal and whose works are best for
posterity have been married."
Rut what are we going to do about
It? Tho last census shows 0,720,171)
bachelois of twenty jearsor more, and
4,105,440 spinsters of the same age.
Think of it! Over ten million degen
erates bringing misery to the country.
What a shame, when there might as
well be 8,390,892 minds with but 4,105
440 thoughts, 8,390,892 hearts that beat
as 1,105,440, and a surplus of only 2,
531,333 degenerates to blast our nation
Hitherto It has been supposed that
there was a surplus of unmarried wo
men In tho country; but this condi
tion no longer exists, if It ever did. In
every state the unmarried men exceed
tho unmarried women. Even Massa
chusetts has a surplus of 5,221 bache
lors. There arc husbands for all and
to spare if men would give up their
Man must bo punished. The right
of courting must bo taken from him.
It Is now woman's duty to assume tho
initiative. Every unmarried woman
should become a mlsslonrry to some
desert man and urge him to glvo up
degeneracy, quit bringing sin and
shame Into the world, and devote his
attention to supporting a wife. Are
the women of tho country avvako to
their responsibility? Aro they equal
to the emergency The future of the
nation may depend on tho answer to
theso momentous questions.

lotlf precinct:-.). W. Ranett, Will
Jensen, J. C. Nielsen, Waldemar Han
sen, Casper Hoffman, Parley Armond.
Joseph E. Cowley of tho 3rd Ward
Is .suggested as a candidate for the
lower house. Mr. Cowley is a prosper
ous farmer and a member of the llrm
of Quaylc & Co. He Is known as a
solid citizen, thoroughly qualllied and
a man In whom the business and
honor of the county may bo safely
intrusted. He has many friends who
would bo glad to have his name come
before the convention.
J. O. Knowles Is not making much
of a blow about what he is doing, but
it Is a significant fact that quite a
number of the Logan delegates aro
known to bo for him. Mr. Knowles'
knowledge of political affairs and his
ability as a worker along political
lines enables him to see far ahead and
lay his wires accordingly. He Is a vote
getter, and would make a good race if
nominated for the Senatorship.
1). R. Roberts Is still In the race for
representative and at last accounts
was easily In the lead for the nomina
tion. In fact there is no one out ac
tively against him. Ho Is so well and
favorably known over tho county that
thoso who would like to mako the
race havo kept In tho background.
Mr. Roberts Is so thoroughly compe
tent as to mako him an ideal can
didate. George Colo Is a candidate for com
missioner and his friends will place
his name beforo the convention. Ho
Is known over tho county as a safe
business man and a party worker
worthy of recognition. Tho fact that
Mr. Cole Is a contractor, makes against
him a little, but if tho convention
favors him he will make a good race.
His record is known to all and It is a
favorable one. Ho has been put up
and knocked down, but he's taken It
like a man and that's what men ad
mire In one another.
A. A. Law of Paradise Is mentioned
for a commlssioncrshlp. Law is ono
of the old stalwarts over there and is
of such capability as to mako him a
worthy candidate. Paradise is a good
Republican town and will bo recog
nized with some nomination, but of
course won't get all of them. Jacob
Larsen wants to be clerk, and his
friends want him lor commissioner.
Law is regarded very highly by Re
publicans over tho county and thoy
would be glad to elect him to any
thing ho wants.
THE DAY BEEORE
The Standing of Various Candidates As
It Looks the Day Before Convention.
Andreas Petersen Is a New Man Brought
Out for Representative. The Fight
For the Sheriffs Nomination.
T. II. Smith, Vied Turner, and C.
C. Cressal are making an active light,
for the nomination for ShcrilT and the
delegates In convention assembled
will have to decide the matter. Smith
brings certain claims that aie good
ones, and his friends say he will be
nominated. Tin nor sajs ho bollevo
the convention will sec Its way clear
to nominate him, for reasons that
havo been set fortli before. Oiessalis
an unknown quantity, but, by those
who aie pushing him ho Is lcgaidcd
as a good substantial man. Smith
sa shls long stand with the paityand
faithful service, combined with capa
bility, entitles him to the olllce, while
Mr. Turner stands on his past leconl
asShciilTand the idea that If nomin
ated he can come neater winning,
fioin the fact that he will draw the
full sticngth of the Republican paity,
and largely from t lie Democratic.
Either of the thiee men will make a
good ShcrilT if elected, but the con
vention should pick the man that
gives the most piomlse of election.
If Smith Is that man Tinner and
Cicssall will help elect him, and if
Tinner is the man there is little doubt
that Smith and Cressal will do all
that Is possible to secure him a victory.
Like wisp if Cressal Is the man.

When asked In regard tohlschanccs
for nomination, Mr. John Hcndrlck
son said that he felt assured that the
convention would nominate him for

friends in tho county stand by him as
he fully expects, there Is little doubt
of tho lesiilt.-IShould Mr- Jlendrlck

upon a faithful, hardworking and lib

the fight of his lire to be elected. Mr.
Hcndrlckson's prominence in the po

him a formidable opponent and if he
is nominated, Mr. Rarbcrwill find him
a hard man to down. Mr. Hcndrlck

great strength from this clement. He

Chairman County Committee,
WSI. II. TlIAINK,
Friends of Jacob Larsen are still
urging him to become a candidate for
commissioner rather than clerk.
They urge several reasons for this, and
one Is that he can secure the commls
sioncrshlp without a doubt, but the
clerkship Isbevond him. Mr. Larsen
as a Paradise man will piobably bo
recognbed with a nomination for
some olllce, and ho Is thoroughly com
petent for any olllce to which he
aspires. Peisonally, he piefeis the
clerkship but no doubt if his friends
would rather glvo him something else
he will accept- giacefully and solve
creditably If fleeted.
Joel Kicks says that T. II. Smith
will bo the nominee for sheillT on the
Republican ticket. Smith's qualifica
tions aie known to Cache County peo
ple, who iecognlo in hhn a capable
man worthy of this honor. Some say
that In the convention he will devel
op an unexpected strength.
Andreas Pctcisen, one of the moil
substantial and favorably known Re
publicans In Cache county Is now be
ing uiged as a candidate for the lower
house. Mr. Pctcisen Is an able man,
a sound icasoner, a student of the
State's atfahs, an excellent speaker,
and a man who would lcllect cicdlt
upon Cache county were he a member
of the next leglslatuic. Mr. Peteisen's
election Is an assuied fact If he is
nominated, for he stands well with
both paitles and Is legarded asa good,
all-iound cltlcn, square, honest ami
w oi thy. Ilo would draw well with
tho Scandinavian element, as he Is,
one of them. Mr. Pctcisen Is a man
foicinost In religious and social affairs
and having been In business In, Logan
for j eats is well known over tho
county. If tho Republicans nominate
as good men as Mr. Peterseil for the
various olllces there can be no doubt
of the ticket's success at the polls on
Nov. 4th. He does not feel Inclined
to make an 'active canvass for tho I
nomination, but if it Is tendered tq
hhn he will dpuhtless accept.
Mis. Maggie Douglas Morehead of
Smlthfleld is mentioned as a candi
date for recorder before the RepubU1
can convention. She is a woman
having excellent qualifications, and
one known well and favorably over
the entire county. It will be remem
bered that sho served as deputy In
t Ills olllce for two j cais at the time Miss
llcssle Morehead was recoider. At
that time she was legarded as an ex
cellent assistant and In the course of
business she had the opportunity of
becoming well acquainted over tho
entire county. Forsovcral years sho
was active Jn her father's, business,
and Is regarded ery highly In her
home town. It is claimed by her
friends that her name on the ticket
would add strength to it.
Thomas Smart as a candidate for
commissioner is a man who would add
great strength to the ticket. Com
petent, thoroughly acquainted with
the county's needs, a good business
man, he would biing to the county a
service that is much needed. Mr.
Smart Is one of the heaviest tax pay
eis In the county, and naturally one
whose personal interest in tho best
conduct of county affairs is great. He
has always been of the greatest service
to the party, and the party can hardly
do less than nominate him. He is
thoroughly genial, not a chionlo olllce
seeker, and Is a man whom the Demo
crats would regard as a man worthy
of their votes. Tom's friends aie
pushing him to the extent of their
C. C. Crcssall (more familiarly known
as Cal Ilawkcs) thinks his chances
for the nomination of sheriff arc vory
good. Mr. Crcssall has always made
Logan his home and is widely known
ovei tho county. lie has been affiliat
ed with the Republican party since
its existence In the county and has
been an earnest party worker. Ho
has never received recognition from
the party nor has he beforo asked It.
At present he Is chairman of the 5th
precinct and in that capacity Is a rc
ilablo party servant. Mr. Crcssall's
friends say for him that ho has tho
qualifications for an efficient scrvico
to tho county In the capacity of sheriff
and that should he receive the nomi
nation would bo a strongman on tho
ticket as ho has many friends in tho
opposite party. Sir. Crcssall asks
that ho receive duo consideration from
tho voters of Cache county and pro
mises to do all In his power to bo
elected should ho recclvo the nomina
tion. If It should happen that ho
doesn't recclvo the nomination, ho
will bo for the man whom tho party
VERY FAIR TICKET ' I
Nominated by the Democratic H
Convention Last Week. iH
Judges W. II. King and R. W. , M
Young Make Short Talks U
Before the Convention. I iH
The Democrats of the county met IH
at tho court house last Wednesday H
and nominated a county ticket. Ac- jl
coidlng to some Democrats it was the "ll
"biggest, best, most harmonious" ll
gathering of Cache county's untcirl- 'll
fled that has been held In vcais, but I'l
to othcis It was hardly that not by a H
long shot and the Republicans as a H
whole aie well satlsllcd with tho H
ticket. The men put up arc fairly H
good men, and the ticket may be ic-
gaulcdasafahly strong one, but tho l
Republican leaders believe they can H
and will swamp the entire alTalr, with lH
the exception of the Senatorial candl- jH
date, and there arc excellent lighting ll
chances ou that. H
Chairman Fullmer called the con- IH
ventlon to oidcr'ut 11:15 and after tlio jH
usual amount of hot air was expended, l
committees weic appointed, and a IH
icsolutlnn advocating the cstab- . H

and state road commission .was H
adopted. This was followed by "tho jH

The Judge was followed by "Dick" JH
Young, who had little to say and said ll
It in few vvoids. He made a plea for ll
non-partlsanshlp in politics when it
comes to the election of Judges, and IJI
asking Republicans to give him their ifll
franchise if they think him better IH
fitted for the supreme bench than his M
opponent, but tie did not advocate a M
vice versa course. M
According to the Journal the sneak- U
crs were wildly applauded, and the H
convention adjourned to meet at 2 p. '"' M
in. Presumably this recess wits for M
lunch but some say it was more for IH
the purpose of relieving the strain M
occasioned by King and Young. M
