In this paper we announce county
judge, J. G. Rochester a candidate
for re-election. Judge Rochester
is one of tho most conscientious
and faithful ofheers the

his time and talents to the
faithful performance of tho many
duties of tho oflico will not bo
questioned by any one. As a judge
ho has beon fair and impartial and
all of his actions upon the bench
havo sprung from n determination
to comply with the law as ho understood
it. As one having tho
enforcement of the law for the
protection of the interest of wards,
and tho settlement of estates involving
tho rights of widows nnd
orphans, one of the most important
phases of tho odico of county
judgo, ho has beon truo to his
trust. In the matter of county finances,
Judgo Rochester has endeavored
to protect the interests of
the taxpayors, and his eftorts in
this direction hnvo resulted in n
rod notion of jtho county dobt. It
has beon his aim to practico economy
in tho administration cf county
tinnnces and tho records will
show that ho has succeeded. In
his porsonal chnracter no man
btauds higher. It is but nnturnl
thnt a faithful public servant
Hhonld seek an endorsement at the
hands of thopeoplo ho has served,
ami with his record Judgo Rochester
ncod not bo ashamed to face
his constituency and ask re-election.
Illinois Central Train Derailed

The wreck is on firo thus

physicians and nurses.
The accident occurred botweon

.The representatives of tho
Men's Association of Marion
and tho Commercial Club, of

this city last Thursday. Tho situation
was discussed in the most
pleasant manner, and the old
friondly feelings that havo so long
existed botweon tho two towns
woro generally exhibited in tho
most cordial maimer by all par-ties.
Salem was represented by
Messrs. Morton, Rappoleo,
Goorgo, GrnsshniH and Gray,
and Messrs. Maxwell, Cochran,
Pierce, Mooro, Gugonheim, and
Nunn stood for Marion, and it

Tho meeting, and the spirit that

that this is the stattib of tho people

of tho people of Marion: If
the railroad is built, they want it
