William Trenton Creasy, candidate for the Legislature, was born 111 Cata wissa Township forty-two years ago, a son of Nathan and Susanna Creasy. His ancestors were among the easiest settlers of eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey, as well as of Columbia county, some of whom had taken an active part in the Revolutionary war. Mr. Creasy is a graduate of the Bloomsburg State Normal School, and has also a German education. He taught school at the age of sixteen, and followed teaching in the winter and working on the farm during the summer for a number of years, and since that time has devoted his atten tion to farming and fruit growing. He has filled the most trusted places in the councils of organizations formed to promote the interests of Agriculture. Has served as School Director and virions other positions of trust. He has always taken an active part in politics, has been committeeman, delegate to our county and State con ventions and on several occasions act ed as a substitute on' The State com mittee. He served in the last two sessions of the Legislature with faith fulness and credit to his county, and was one of the"two members who was present at every meeting of this body at these two sessions. In the session of 1895 he received words of com mendation from the newspapers for the active part he took in passing the free bridge bill, by which the State is required to erect bridges across pub lic streams when destroyed by fire, water or other casualty. This bill has already saved Columbia county over $BO,OOO. At the session of 1897 he was the recognized leader ot the Democratic party in the House,which title he won by his ability, honesty, courage and attention to business and his courteous treatment to his fellow members. His advice was frequently sought on important bills by the lead ing members of both House and Sen ate. The records of the House show that he opposed the infamous electric light bill and all other monopoly and jobbery bills. He always took a deter mined stand in favor of the farmers' and laboring men's interests, and was one of the active members in stand- Democratlc Candidate for Representative, j t H* < HON. WM. CHRISMAN. Hon. William Chrisman, one of the Democratic nominees for member of Assembly of Columbia County, was born in Pottsville, Pa., torty-four years ago, and at an early age remov ed to Montour county and soon after to this county. He spent the early years of his life upon the farm ; and after the labors of the day were over, he was to be found poring over his books determined to secure the best education he could. He attended the public school during the winter months, and began teaching at the age of seventeen years, graduating from the Bloomsburg State Normal School in 1877, and afterwards taking an extended course in the classics; and for a number of years taught in the Bldomsburg public schools. Mr. Christinan studied law in COLUMBIAN. BLOOMSBURC. P" ing by the schools and their appropri ations, and the new method of distri bution in this State. ' He was spoken of by his friends as a suitable candidate for Auditor Gen eral in 1897, and also for Secretary of Internal Affairs on the present Demo cratic ticket but declined the honors. The press throughout the state has spoken very favorably in behalf of his past services ; a few of the compli ments are here given : The Pittsburg Post, the leading Democratic paper of western Pa. said : "The coutageous and really able manner in which Representative Creasy of Columbia county has stood op against the determined Quay pow er in the House and fought for re trenchment and reform has rendered him a conspicuous figure. He Jias on more than one occasion forced a re cognition of the minority by a ma jority." The Harrisburg Patriot , the lead ing !>emocratic morning paper of cen tral Pennsylvania says the following : "Mr. Creasy has made one of the most valuable of legislators. He is honest, capable, fearless. With cour age and conscience he has steadfastly fought against vicious legislation and has won many fights in the capitol with the evil powers arrayed agamst him. We shall be glad to have him back here next year." The Philadelphia Press, the leading Republican newspaper of nia said: "Representative Creasy is a Dem ocrat, and as long as Columbia county must send Democrats to the legislature it is not likely to find a- more honor able and intelligent Representative. He was a leader on his side at the last session, and did not,like so many oth er Democrats,yield to the temptations which through one sort of bribery or another destroyed the members' useful ness. Mr. Creasy was an honor to his party and to his county." In offering himself for re-election to ihe Legislature he pledges himselt to oppose machine rule, trusts,monop olies and jobberies of all kinds, and will do all in his power to faithfully serve his constituents and the best interests of the whole State. Bloom sburg and was admitted to the bar of Columbia County in 1882. In the same year, was elected Town Treasurer, and served for three years; School Director in 1888 and served as treasurer of the board during said term. In IS9O he was appointed by the Court for District Attorney, filling the unexpired term, elected then for one term, serving the Commonwea'th faithfully and declined a re-election. He was chosen Chairman of the Democratic County Committee in 1888, this being an acknowledgement of the interest he had taken in the party, and the skill and en ergy he had shown in advocating its policy, and has since acted in this capacity five years. During the last session of the Leg islature, he pursued the same honest course, working strenuously for the best interests of those who elected him. Although his party was in the minority, his voice was always heard in opposition to any methods that were proposed to conflict with the prosperity of the people. He was up on some of the most important com mittees in the House, thus adding to the strength of his work. , Politically, Mr. Christman has al ways been a democrat, Descending from a long line of men famous for their puolic works as Legislators, Min isters, and Revolutionary heroes, who have always been failhtully devoted to the principles of the democratic party, he has never faltered in his party alle giance. Although actively engaged in the practice of his profession, he has always been able to find time to res pond to thj call of his party in all the important campaigns since 1880 and has taken an active part. Mr. Chrisraan is asking for the support of the people for his second term which has been conceded by a Legal advertisements cn page 7.

The deceased was forty-six years of age and leaves a wife and one daughter to mourn his death. The Supreme Court has decided that when a cross is marked in the circle at the top of the column, and a cross marked at a name in another column, the %vhole ballot is vitiated and will not be counted. The only way to avoid a mistake is to mark a cross in the circle and vote the straight ticket. Democrats who do not want to lose their votes should make a note of this. Boyd Shaffer, a member of the United States Volunteer Engineet Corps, arrived home on a twenty day sick furlough, Tuesday night. At the expiration of the twenty days he will make a request to remain at home forty days longer, a piiviiege allowed all soldiers from the front.
