Herman Bockman, Sr. Herman Bockman, Sr., is a plain man of the people. He is clear-headed and honest. For many years he has lived in the Kootenai valley; his reputation for integrity and good citizenship is without stain. All the old-timers know and like him. He does not wish to pose as a statesman or an orator; his ambition is confined to the desire to perform all duties im posed upon hinm, in either public or private life, in an effective, un ostentatious and manly way. He is hampered by no prejudices, he is wedded to no hair-brained fads or vagaries. A workman himself, Mr. Bockman knows the needs of labor and understands the require ments of those who toil with their hands. In the legislature of this state Herman Bockman would be a useful, safe, fearless man. In point of fitness he would measure up well with the men he will be called upon to confer and work with. The trickster or political charlatan who attempts to "put anything over" on Bockman will be well out of breath when he gets through with the job. Mr. Bock man signed and filed statement No. ()One which pledges him to support for the office of United States sen ator the candidate who receives the largest popular vote, and their will lIe no dallying or dodging on Mr. Blocku.tn's part. He will do this as he always does-j:st what he promises to do. He Won It Fairly From all parts of the county come daily assurances front the people, BEST.

Davis in his campaign for county treasurer. The average man likes a square deal and most people dislike a sorehead and squealer. There is no denying the fact that Judge Davis, who is an honored old-time resident of this county, won his nomination fairly, honestly, in a square, open fight against Johnny Friend. There were no bosses in control of that convention; there were no strings on the delegates; they were not stampeded, or fooled, or threat ened, or bought, or bamboozled. They voted for their choice. They picked George Davis because they thought he was entitled to the nom ination and knew he would make a good man in the office. The ma jority evidently thought Johnny Friend had had nearly four years in the county treasurer's office and could afford to wait a while for an other term. If Friend had won the nomination George Davis would have been out today working for Friend's election. He would not have been disloyal, or sore, or dis gruntled. Mr. Davis is not that kind of a democrat. Mr. Davis is taithful to a principle and loyal to his party. That's his record. They Stand Well at Home It falls out that many able; loyal, trusted men who have been fight ing for many years the battles of the democratic party in the region that now comprises Lincoln county are this year summoned by their fellow citizens to carry the dem ocratic banner in the county cam paign. Men like Jack Weir,George E. Davis, John P. Bowen, Herman Bockman and Paul D. Pratt are worthy of the utmost confidence in all the walks of life. They have never wavered in the allegience to their party or their community. They stand for the best there is in the social, industrial and political life of their home city. They ale clean, progressive, honest men; they have the qualifications to fit them for valuable public service. They are not trimmers or time servers. They are deeply devoted to the best interests of Lincoln county; they know the require ments of public office and they are fair and fearless men who will never falter or fail in the discharge of their public duties. The man who wants to be just, no matter what his party predilic tions, must confess this to be a truthful statement. The candi dates named by the democratic party in Lincoln county are able high-mindrd men who are worthy of every confidence. Running against Geo. Ottawa on the republican ticket for coronei we have Harry Gompf. Now Harry has been a life-long demn ocrat and when the republicans held their convention they wished to have at least one winner on the ticket so picked a democrat to fill the place. Harry wanted the job of coroner to go with his undertak ing business and decided that he would run anyway. Now you can take it or leave it. just as you please, but Harry is running for coroner, and he is traveling so fast that when the votes are counted on the 5th of N.:vetmier hie will have quite a few to his credit. For many yea.rs the object of the democratic party has been to put up a better man and with him to de feat the incumbrent of an office. They are still at it. This year the democrats of Lincoln county picked John P.Bowen to retrieve the office of county clerk. The present holder of that office, Sam Carpenter of Eureka, is a republican. Now Sam Carpenter has made a fairly good official. He is a fine fellow to meet: kind; friendly; attentive and cour teous. He will be a hard man to beat, but the democrats of Lineoln county think they have a man bet ter qualified for the job with all of the accomplishments we have cred ited to Sam Carpenter. John Bowen is one of the oldest old-timers of Lincoln county; knows the country like a book; is well qualified to fill the position of county clerk, and will bring to the office a lot of knowledge that will prove of great value to the county. He deserves your support at the coming election and if elected will give Lincoln county honest and capable service. Some hair-brained individual with less mental machinery than would cover a pin roint, has taken the trouble to follow the demo cratic bill poster from point to point in the eastern part of the county and pull down and destroy all bills bearing the name of that disting uished gentleman, the democratic candidate for county treasurer, Judge George E. Davis. Whenever an opponent, personally or through an agent, gets so low on the ladder of self respect as to deny, without any right, the privilege of using the stumps of this county for post ing campaign literature, that man is not fit to be used as a door mat. The Herald does not believe John ny Friend is capable of such small ness or that he even sanctions the deed. Some friend of his is injur ing him deeply by this action. This is supposed to be a country of equal rights for all. Every man is deserving of a fair hearing. Cam paign posters will hurt no one. If they offend, do not read them. When it come down to the fine points of the question of who will be coroner of Lincoln county for the next two years, the Herald is somewhat at sea. Geo Ottawa, the present coroner, has taken care of the dead ones in an efficient and economical way: keeping down ex penses wherever possible. He has always been on the job and seems to know what to do at th1ir ight time. We can not give advice or pointers in handling dead ones, as this office fights shy of that partic ular brand whenever possible. However, never having heard any complains from persons handled by George, we presume him to be giv ing perfect satisfaction and to be the man for the job. George Ot tawa is a big man of a hearty, jovial character. If George fails to get elected this fall it will he be cause of the fact that he will say anything to anybody, no matter who or where, and this makes some enemies for him in some parts of the county. Out of the maze of political promises and pre-election pledges stands prominently and attractively the signature of Herman Bockman Sr. to the statement, "I will obey the people's will. I will do my duty honestly, fearlessly. I will carry out the commands of the people without cavil or question." Such a man is good enough to represent the people of Lincoln county in the legislature. He should be elected. Bertram P Thomas will make a good county surveyor. He has been surveying in all parts of the county and is well acquainted with conditions as they exist. lie is an honest, capable and conscientious ann, young in ytars, but old in experience; a loyal demlcCl t andi ore who will run the office of :r veyor in the best interest- of L in coln county. Geo. A. Ottawa has made a good coroner, but he could not holdl down a diplomatic job. He believes in and practices saying what he thinks about things. Because a man happens to be a good coroner is no reason why he should a diptomat. Money to loan on approved se- It curity. A. L.
