JAMES G- BLAINE, of llaine-
JOHN A- 10GAN, of Illinois-
LEWIS HANBACK, of Osborne-
At the solicitation of many Republi
cans, I hereby announce myself as a
candidate for State Senator, from this
district, subject to the action of the Re
H. S Gkanoer.
As this question is now forced upon
the the people of this, the 38th Senato
rial District it behooves Republicans of
the whole district, and especially of
Phillips county who are very likely to
name the man. to look well to their
interest and that of the. whole people.
The names of two men, both
well known to the
people of the county, are before
you to ask lor vour suifraires The no-
sitiou is one that should be filled
by a man of - large
public , experience .and good
abilities, conservative m-tendencies
and a man of unquestioned integrity
and honor, a man in regard to whose
vction, the question tOf-vital impor
tance Uiere can be no doubt, ana we
believe in the person of H. S. Granger
oi Areaae townsnip wd nave a canai
date who will, to the fullest measure
come up to our standard; of he whom
will best serve us as a State Senator:
n man who is thoroughly identified
with the leading industry of this section
ox Kansas, that of agriculture ; a thor
ough, wide-awake, business man, well
povted in public affairs, and never con
nected with any questionable business
complications that might disqualify him
from voicing the will .of the people on
the moral questions that -are almost sure
to be before our State legislature.
If a plebistcite of the Republican
party, could have been ordered on the
nomination, Blaine would have received
400,000,000 out of the 04000,000 Repub
lican votes, against all other candidates.
The opposition to him came from the
shoulder-straps ; the rank and file were
nearly all for him, and it is the rank
and file which furnish the votes on elect
ion day. . The same popular sentiment
that nominated him will elect him. Any
resentment among politicans born of
chagrin just at this moment, will vanish
into thin an before the steady march of
popular feeling. No man who is at
hart with the Republican party can
hold out against the masses of the party.
Those who have worked against Blaine
will be influenced by the prompt and
hearty support made by President Ar
thur the very moment it became evident
'that Blaine would be nominated. "This
example will be imitated with a cotagion
which will sweep through all. the fac
tions and extend from Maine to Cali
fornia . Maine will Btart the ball in Sep
tember, Ohio will keep it moving Octo
ber, and it will grow into an avalanche
in November, to which every northern
state and at least West Virginia and
Delaware among the southern states
will contribute in strength. Chicago

Contrasting Candidates and Parties
The situation. seems to be this: There
is povv a contest between Blaine and the
men whose candidates were not nomin
ated at Chicago. ' But Blaine is not run
ning against the men wfeo were not
nominated. By and by the Deinocratiu
party will nominate a man who will be
running against Blaine. 1 he men who3e
candidates were not uommated will be
gin to contrast these two candidates,
and from contrasting the men they will
finally get to contrasting the parties, and
then Blaioe will get. them aU.-fCol.
