Justice M. B , ReoHe , dean of the

previously served an a member of

Ho rofusad to bo a candidate , but
when made the nominee ho h.ts
agreed to accept AS a matter of duty
No stronger or uioro popular man
could have boon nominated. In
speaking of his nomination , thu
State Journal says :
The republicans of Lincoln are
jubilant over the nomination of
Judge M. B. Reese for judge of the
supreme court. Expressions of sat
isfaction are heard on all sides , andes
os [ ocially from members of the bar.
The attorneys consider him an able
lawyer , and that qualification id the
first point they look to. The mem
bers of the party generally know
him as an honest man , a man above
reproach. The politicians of al
parties realize that ho is ouo of the
strongest nominees over placed be
fore the people. He is known to
his friends as an open-hearted man
and a model of good citizenship
IJin sociability and approachable
nose has made him many friends.
Every young man who has gone out
of the university law college , re
gardless of political viowshas noth
ing but the highest praise for him.
One who has been intimately
associated with Judge Rooao for
many years , said : "He n the best
man it has over been tny fortune to
know , llo is great enough to shine
by the Hide of the most exalted in
the nation , yet ho has never become
so exalted that he could not place
himself on the level of the most
lowlv man , woman or child. "
The attorneys who discuss the
matter admit that there is no' com
parison between thu eminent illness
of Judge Reese and the mediocre
ability of ox.Governor Holcomb as
a lawyer. There is also no com
parison in the matter of ability to
make a campaign. Judge Reese is
a fluent speaker. Ho is enorgetio ,
and tnakoR a good impression by his
speech and by his appearance Ex-
Governor Holoomb is admitted to
bo a very poor talker , and his ponderous
derous speeches have frequently
emptied houses. The fusioiusl

what to do with the mud batteries

This demand for reduction of

of fooling the people , has joined
