Hays is asking the voters of Car-1 bon County to re-elect him and the records at the court house show that he has well and faithfully served the people in his present capacity. The records show that of the nine teen foiony cases filed in the District Court twelve have been convicted, ten have been committed to the state pris on, one défendent received a fine and one was given parole. The records also show that the fines collected for the violation of the pro hibition act exceeded the cost of pros ecution more than seventeen hundred dollars, or to be exact »1,735.00 shown by the ereasurer's books. There appears to be considerable less violation of the law at the pres ent time than for a number of years past.
