On Friday the Republicans of Craw ford placed in nomination, what is re garded by republicans and democrats alike as the strongest ticket the party has ever placed in the field. It is a ticket that appeals to,every section of the county it is a well bal anced ticket, a ticket which many dem ocrats will vote from choice and which every republican can give his hearty support. East, West, North, South and Center, Jackeon, Charter Oak, Morgan, Manilla and Denieon, are rep resented, while the democratic ticket contains no candidate living *e«t of Denieon. From the point of nationality the republican ticket is aleo"well propor tioned. the Germans, Irish and Amer leans being represented by strong men. The convention itself was an earnest body of men having in mind nothing but the good of the party and the peo ple. While there was no scramble for office, there was no dearth of candi dates, good available candidatee, who will accept the nominations gratefully and use all honorable means to be el It is a ticket without a blemish or a weak spot. It is a ticket that republi cans can fight for with a clear consci ence they can win with with credit to themselves and to the people, or be defeated with without disgrace. The republican nominations have al ready cast consternation into the dem ocratic ranks. More than one promin ent democratic leader has admitted that it was the strongest ticket the re publicans could have named and ex pressed surprise that the republicans could present so determined and united a front. Another source of disappointment to the democrats was the absolute har mony and good feeling that prevailed. There was not, throughout the conven tion, one sign of factionalism. Charter Oak, Manilla, Vail, West Side. Arion, Dow Jity, Schleswig and Denison worked together as if thev all came from the same town and the delegates from the townships worked hand in glove with the delegate* from the towns. We believe we can safely say that not one sore or disgruntled man left the convention—unless it was some democratic spectator. In spite of the fact also that there was no pre-aonvention contest, all but three precincts of the county were rep resented. Jackson township reports having had the largest and most en thusiastic ^caucus evdr held in the township, having placed a splendid township ticket in the field, and. with Maynard on the ticket, being in splen did shape to carry the township. Simi lar reports come from other townships and the republican campaign of 190-1 seem* to he'launched under the most favorable possible circumstances, We will in a later issue publish por traits and sketches of all the candidates, at present we would consider the per sonel of the ticket briefly. Two years ago the republicans left blank the'position of Auditor giving Mike Collins a free lield. We have failed to discover any mark of appreci ation of this on Mr. Collins'part. In stead of considering that on this ac count he was a non-partisan official Mr. Collins has-lost no opportunity to beas partisan as possible. This year the re publicans have made the strongest pos sible nomination against him in the person of Mr. Edward Theobald, one of the most highly respected and best liked men in Nishnabotny township, a member of one of the oldest families in the county, well educated, sober, indus drious, honest and straight-forward. He will poll every republican vote in Nishnabotny—and then some. We al so predict that as the campaign pro gresses and he becomes better known throughout the county his candidacy will grow in favor and that he will not only receive the republican vote, hut the votes of all the democrats who are opposed to the breaking of the two term rule and the dictatorship of the Denison ring of office distributors. Mr. Theobald is a man without fear and without reproach a worthy head of a magnificent county ticket and he is backed by the united republican sup port of his home township. For Clerk of the 'Courts the republi cans have named Mr. Claus Pahl, a stalwart republican of Morgan town ship. He is comparatively a young man he has been a successful farmer: is well educated fully competent and is one of the be»t liked men in the northwest part of the county. He, too, is running against a third-termer, a man who, through his newspaper and official position, has received the con stant support of the democratic oarty fortwenty years. The democratic par ty has been his constant source of livii hood during all this time. He was started in business by the democratic party Pepsin business by the party, and given office by the Jpartv. There is a feelinc that be has received all to which he is entitled: that he has no just claim to be a life pensioner and especially is this feeling strong when it is known that he has already agreed to turn hie succession over his depu ty. Further, in spite of all the bolster ing and party aid the democrats have constantly been disappointed in the in fluence of his paper, which has never been able to claim even half the circu lation of the Zeitung. Mr. Pahl will make a canvass of the county asking his friends to support him and he will doubtless receive many votes faom his friends who will feel that Mr. Faul has been supported long enough and who object to him ae a subservient tool of the ring of office distributors. For county recorder the republicans have named a splendid young man, a product of the home life and schools of Crawford county. Mr. M. L. Houlihan, Jr., of Charter Oak. Although of a democratic family, Mr. Houlihan exer cised hie individual ljudgment and al lied himself with the republican party with his first vote. He acted ae a dele gate at the iaet republican state con vention. He is a graduate of the Den ieon college and has a wide acquain anceehip throughout the county. He has had business experience both at Denieon and Charter Oak ie possessed of an upright, moral character, ability, integrity, 'and a first-class education. Mr. Houlihan's Charter Oak friende urged the nomination upon him and it was only after much hesitancy that he decided to accept. Now that he is in the contest he will strive to win and he wishes hie friends to understand that he hopes to be elected -and eolicite their support. The election of McKim was a mistake acknowledged freely by democrats and republicans alike and there is no use in perpetuating it.j He is a wooden man. He has never done anything for anyone but himself, eith er in the party or out of it, and there will be no regret Jon the part of acy one—but himself—if he is defeated. Mr. Houlihan will run ahead of his ticket in many townships, and we are confident that he will receive the united support of the republicans. Democracy plans to center its fight upon P. J. Klinker, the republican candidate for county attorney. He is young: he is a German he is a republi can—for these reasons he is to be pun ished. Mr. Klinker has made a good record as county attorney. He has been honest, straightforward and econ omical in the discharge of his duties He has not encouraged contention and has not allowed the county to be made the vehicle,through the criminal code, to satisfy personal feuds and grudges. It is true that the board, wisely, employed what is considered the best legal talent it could find to act with Mr. Klinker in matters relative to the new court house, but this would have been done under the administra tion of any county attorney we have had for a dozen years and would be continued were the democratic nomi nee elected. Nevertheless, Mr. Klink er is to be assailed on every hand even though Mr. O'Connor, whose record as a bolter, is very distasteful to many democrats is to be the beneficiary. xMr. Klinker deserves and should receive the votes of every republican. The Bulletin had laid elaborate plans to condole with Mr. Klinker and to pat him on the back and tell what a good fellow he was in case he was not re nominated. Now that he has been— without opposition— it will reverse its tactics and paint him in the darkest colore. Mr. Klinker is a German boy, who has worked his own way, and he has many friends in both parties who will at the polls show their resentment of the attacks made upon him. A part of this venomous program came to light when he was viciously abused by supervisor John Cook on Friday, when Mr. Klinker gave an opinion to the board favvrahle to the placing of the county funds in other than the Denison banks. The attack was so vicious that it was resented by the balance of the board even though they are democrats. We urge the republicans to stand by Mr. Klinker and not lo give too ready credence to democratic abuse to the only republican county officer we have save Uncle (Morris against, whom the democrats are already loading their mud-machines for the next campaign. The republicans made another bril liant nomination in that of Henry May nard, of Jackson town-hip. ''Hank'' Mavnard is one of the best known and most suceessfuf farmeis of the eastern part of the county. His brother, James Maynard, served with credit on the boardand "Hank" will serve—for he will be elected—with equal good judg ment, honesty and frankness. It must be remembered that Mr. Holland failed two vears ago to carry the northeast part of the county—the portion he is supposed to represent— and there is every indication that he will suffer the same defeat among his neighbors this year. On every hand is heard commendp. tions of tnis nomination and this is helped by the growing belief that it will be 'better for the county to have both parties represented on the board. It is a fact that the republicans pay at least one-half of the taxes of the coun ty and it i9 only just that they should have representation. Whatever the outcome of the cam paign the republicans can have no reason to be ashamed of their ticket— from top to bottom. Tne party has suffered enough from factionalism in the past. Every community that fos ters factionalism must expect to pay the penalty and it is our earnest hope that this year at least thelrepublicane— confessedly a minority party in Craw ford— will see the fulility of it ail and etand by those nominees who have signified their willingness to make the conteet for the benefit of the party rather than from personal ambition. The issues are now joined in nation, state and county. Let us have a keen vigorous, but clean and manly contest, Let all republicans join in a gsand hurrah for the ticket from Roosevelt to Maynard. Let Republicanism be the watchword and sweeping victory the goal. Mr. Richard Kinney, whose friende brought him forward at the last mom ent as a candidate for supervisor, made a splendid run for the nomination and then just to show he was too big a man for any eore spot, he moved to make Maynard'e nomination unanimous. The republicane of Crawford have every reason to be grateful to Hon.B. I. Salinger, not only for the promptness with which he came to the rescue when Judge Smith was unable to address the convention, but for the splendid speech he made. It was just the right kind of a talk to give inspiration to the dele gates and to help them in the iniseion ary revival work necessary to carry Crawford this fall. After diligent effort the proxy con vention held by the democrats in Fort Dodge succeeded in securing Ed Bran nagan, of Emmettsburg. as a congres sional candidate against Judge Conner As a rule it is only wh«n there is no show of an election that an editor gets a nomination. jFREIGHT RATES TOO HIGH Munroe Tells Reason for Discrimina tion Against Denver. Denver, Sept. 13.—Judge C. C. Prouty, member of the interstate com merce commission, began hearing evi dence in this city on charges of dis crimination in freight tariffs against this city, which have bean rnada against all western railways. Cattle men allege that 1'cr years the rail roads have been steadily advancing live stock rales and are now threaten ing to put them still higher. George J. Kindel, a manufacturer, presented evidence shewing that goods shipped to Denver from both the east and west are booked as first class, which are transported to any oilier state at third and fourth class rates. J. A. Munroe, freight traffic mana ger of the Union Pacific, testified that competition between the eoiton mills of New England and those of the south made discrimination in freight rates a necessity. The density of pop ulation along the Missouri river also controlled rate schedules. Mr. Prouty thought that volume of traffic- rather than density of population should rule. He asked the railroad attorney what the Almighty had done for the cities along the .Missouri that rhey should be given lower freight rates than Den ver. The question was not fully an swered when a recess was taken. FRIENDS GUARD SLAYERS Florida Mob Defies Sheriff to Arrest Men Charged With Homicide. Cordele, Cu., Sept. 13.—A party of about fifty friends are standing guard with loaded Winchesters around a house in Haxter, Fla., in which ara Charles Altmau and Hillary Altman, two men who are accused of killing a negro and a white man on an excur sion train near that place. These friends of the Altmans tired upon Deputy Sheriff Thrift, who had at tempted to arrest the men. The two men killed were Jackson Duncan, a young white man, and Jim Riley, a ne gro. The latter was killed by a stray bullet. W. M. Duncan, the father of the white man who was killed, was shot at from ambush four times today. Inheritance Law Is Lame. Des Moines, Sept. i.— is found that the Iowa inheritance tax law, which has now been on the statute books about ten years and under which a vast amount lias been col I lectc-d for tlie state from estates not directly inherited, is weak in that it undertakes to discriminate against I the foreign holder of property in Iowa, ft requires a higher payment from the alien than from the resident of the state. The German consul in Chicago has called the attention of the Iowa authorities to the tact that under treaties with Germany this can not be done. A E Physician and Acrobat Fail to Secure License.. MOTHERS CONSENT REFUSED Physician of the Walter L. Main Cir cus, Disappointed in His Attempt to Secure License to Wed Miss Nelson. During the stay of the Walter L. Main circus in thia city last week, a pretty little romance -came to light. While Miss Delia Nelson, one of the famous .family of acrobats, which ie travelling [with the circus, was per forming her wonderful feats under the canvass in the afternoon. Dr. Theo. 8. Crosby, the physician of the circus, was nervously going back and forth to and from the office of the county clerk, endeavoring to secure a license to marry her. Rev. Joseph of the Epis copal church had been secured to per form the ceremony and all was in readiness for the event, but owing to the age of the young lady, which was given as sixteen, the clerk refused to issue the license without the consent of her mother, iwho resides at Mt Clemens, Mich. Her consent was wired for. but up to the hour of the closing of the clerk's office no replv had been received. Late in the even ing, however, a message was received in which consent was refused for the reason that the daughter is too young. She also stated in the message that she would write to the doctor and from the general tone of the reply it is thought that in a year or two the mother's consent will be gladly eiven and the young couple will be able to bring about their hearts' desires. Dr. Crosby is a line looking Igentlf uian about twenty-live years'of age. He is a graduate of the Baltimore med ical college and was for some time as sistant surgeon at the marine hospital at Washington, D. C. He joined the. Main circus as resident physician last spring. He came with high diplomas and well recommended by the medical fraternity of Baltimore, and has had occasion many times during the sum mer to prove his efficiency as a physi cian and surgeon. The Doctor's Knnuince. During the sojourn of the circus at Montpelier, Vt.,on Sunday about three months ago, the circus people had a little outing on one of the lakes in the vicinity. The Nelson (family of acro bats, who are famed the world over, took the outing with the rest. While out boating the young people in th party became very frolicsome and were several times cautioned by the older cues to be careful. To this they paid no heed. Suddenly there was a cry and one of the young ladies was seen struggling in the water. Dr. Crosby, together with several of the y^.ung circus men was rowing by at the time, and, seeing the little one in the water, jumped in after her. After a brief struggle he linally gained the shore with the young lady, who proved to be Miss Delia Nelson The acquaintance, which was made in such a startling manner, soon grew into strong friendship and linally ri pened into love. The intention of the doctor to get married came as a com plete surprise to the circus people, who hold in high este •:v both the doc tor and his would-be de. Miss Nel son is a rather sma.. young lady, but very beautiful, and no one who has seen her can blame the doctor for los lltig his heart. He is an aggressive looking young man and with a little wooing of the young lady's mother will doubtless secure the desired consent. Mr. Claus Johnson, of Miltord town ship was in town on Saturday and left at this office mples of some very tine I apples from his orchard. They were I the largest we have seen this season and were as sound as a dollar. BROADWAY GROeERY Rr RUITS.

RUSSIAN RAIDER CREATES STIR Captain of Transport Says Boilers Are in Bad Shape and Need Re pairs Washington Officials Ask Further Report. ii( Washington, Sept. 13.—The expect ed protest of Japan against allowing the Russian auxiliary cruiser Lena, wbifBh arrived at San Francisco Sun day to remain longer than twenty lour hours, came when the Japanese consul in that city, througu the col lector of customs, made the formal demand that the vessel he required to leave at the end of that time. The collector's telegram officially notify ing the authorities of the arrival of the Lena and of Japan's protest wa9 addressed to the secretary of the treasury, who at once sent copies to Acting Secretary of State Adee and Acting Secretary Murray of the de partment of commerce and labor, who has direct jurisdiction in the matte The telegram reads as follows: "Japanese consul has made demand tipon me that Russian auxiliary cruis er Lena, arriving at this port 11th inst., leave within twenty-four hours. The captain reports that lie has en tered for repairs of engines and boil ers, principally the latter. 1 am re questing the inspector of hulls and boilers to make on examination of vessel's machinery, with the consent of the Russian consul and the com mander of the Lena. Can find no au thority in the law or regulation for collector assuming any authority in the premises and request, instruction." Acting Secretary Murray sent the following dispatch to the collector: "Your telegram concerning Russian steamship Lena received. You should have addressed this department, as directed in circular 29. Wire this de partment hour of steamer's arrival at your port and concise resume of steamboat, inspector's report, and if repairs are necessary the probable time required to complete them. On receipt ol' particulars the department •will instruct you further." The circular referred to was issued on Feb. 13 of the present year, imme diately after hostilities between Rus sia and Japan commenced, and be sides containing the president's proc lamation and the provisions of the statutes relating to neutrality, the government's instructions to collect ors that "should any case arise re quiring official action you will com municate tlie facts to the department by telegraph." The Lena will have been in port over twenty-four hours before the question of her right to tie up for re pairs is determined. Will Inspect the Lena. Sau l-'rancisco, Sept. 13.—No repre sentative of the United Slates govern ment has yet boarded the Russian cruiser Lena for the purpose of sub stantiating the claims of Captain A. T. Berlinsky that the warship put into this port solely for the reason that her boilers were in such a condition as to render her absolutely unsea worthy. The Russian warship has •ow remained in port long over the twenty-four hour limit, and prom inent members of the local Russian and Japanese colonies are evincing great interest in what they are prone to designate a "serious complication." It has been learned that John K. Bul ger, United States inspector of hulls and boilers, will make a thorough in spection of the Lena's boilers and as soon as possible will submit a writ ten report to Collector of the Port St ration. Upon this report may de pend whether or not the Lena is or dered to put to sea or whether she will be allowed to remain until such time as the repairs deemed necessary may be made.
