Sixty-five students of the high school
will graduate with the class of 1912.
The list was made public today by
.Principal A. J. Burton, alter a care
ful Investigation of the credits and ac
complishments of each of the mem
bers of the senior class. Of course, it
is possible that some few may fail to
come up to their standard in the final
few weeks and in that manner have to
wait until next year to get their diplo
mas, but the class as a whole is so well
above the dividing line that there is
little reason to believe that any will
thus fall down at the last minute.
In size the class compares favor
ably with those of the past. 'Though
not the largest, it Is far from being the
smallest and its record has been good
during its four years in school.
SMALL, Xl'MBEB OF BOYS.
One unusual feature about the class
is the comparatively large number of
girls who make up its membership. Of
the 05 only 20 are boys. That leaves
45 girls. As a general rule there is
I about an equal number of girls and
boys and the preponderance has been
in favor of the boys as often as it has
of thu girls.

REBUKES ATTACKS IN
THE JUDICIAL ELECTION
The Aledo Times-Record, republi

anent recent developments in the su
preme court judicial campaign in this
"The Chicago Examiner of last Sun
day made a bitter attacK upon Justice
' A frwtL'A in rnnnM-rlnn u-irh o
nice write-up and the picture of Judge
Robert Grier. The Examiner abused
Judge Cooke unmercifully and said
some pretty mean things concerning
him. Amor.e other thinza it ststed
Itfcat he received most of his law prac
tice wht-n practicing in this city from
the Burlington Railroad company and
that he was never a Judge of anything,
not even a horse race, until he was
elected to the supreme bench.
"This attack was no surprise to the
Times Record for eariy In February a
representative of the Chicago Examin
er came to this office and frankly stat
ed that he was in search of material
derogatory to Justice Cooke and his
"After inquiring into the early life
of Judge Cooke and his subsequent
practice of law, the Examiner man
wanted to know about Mrs. Cooke
and her family, where they came from
and w-ho they were.
"The man w as told that Mrs. Cooke
was a member of one of Mercer coun
ty's mo6t highly respected pioneer
families and w$ a lady greatly admir
ed by the people of her home city. It
was further suggested to the Examin
er investigator that if his paper was
planning -an attack on Justice Cooke,
it had better let the matter alone as
Jud?e Cooke stood well with the peo
ple of Mercer and surrounding coun
ties and would get a good many repub
lican votes here at home, in spite of
all the republican organization might
do to hold the vote in line or whoever
might become the republican nominee.
He was told plainly that an attack on
Justice Cooke through the Chicago
American or Examiner would mean
more votes here for Cooke.
"Now if the Examiner pleases to
support Judge Robert J. Grier and tell
ox his s-rrmy beautiful traits of charac
ter, It would be well within the rights
of clean journalism and would simply
be removing the election of judges
one step further from politics. We
all as a people recognize that the judi
ciary should be taken out of politics,
but find it easier to advocate than to
put in practice.
"Judge Grier is an able jurist, and a
man of many admirable qualities, but
for Hearst's Chicago Examiner to
print his picture and laudatory write
up in the same article in which It de
nounces his opponent, we doubt If It

tention to party lines.
"Such political methods as those of
the Examiner erninate from Chicago,
and are, we believe, as foreign to
Warren as they are to Mercer county."
