I Has Cronquist Wings
I "The Only" would lead us to believe so.
I Facts dispel the illusion.
Hj Our friends, tlic enemy down the
M street, insist on making the people be-
H llevc that Ollf Cionquist, Democratic
B candidate Tor Commissioner, Is about
H the only real thing that ever blew
H ' down the pike and that his opponent,
B Joseph Kuowlcs, Is about the worst
H that ever happened. Considering the
M fact that the election of Mr. Cron-
B qulst will give the Democrats control
HH of the Hoard of Commissioners, thus
BjV insuring the most distinguished and
pHH remarkable "only" near $1,000 yearly
M:! ' in legal printing, etc., It Is not stiangc
that the (juill pushois of that paper
H arc very sttenuous in poitiaying tils
m virtues and dcciying the fellow against
pi liim. Inasmuch as Tiik Rki'uiii.h an
H stands to lose what "the only" wins
Hj in case of Cionquist's election, there
H can hai'dly be any objection to a total-
H latlon from this papei, especially if
H our points aie well taken.
H Tiik Rkitiimcax has a certain ad
H miration for Mr. Cronquist -his farm
H and buildings north of this city form
H a veritable garden spot, and it Is al-
H ways a source of plcasuic to oasshls
PJ place. We can't help but feel that
J any man with a tendency to keep his
J property In presentable shape possesses
PJ many other good qualities. However,
J this doesn't indicate for a minute that
PJ Mr. Cronquist is the whole thing -
PJ that he Is w ithout Haw-, the peer of all
PJ his fellow men, that tills county's af-
PJ fairs cannot be conducted without
H him In the saddle. Granting that Mr.
PJ Cronquist Is possessed of many good
PP qualities, isn't It just baicly possible
PP that there othcisV We are happy to
PJ say that we have heard many good
PP tilings of Mr Cionquist, but we hive
ipi, also hcaid it said many times that lie
3Pm. 1 vkuy kxi'ensivk, that in; is a
DW hard master, that In ordinary busi-
Hb ness mattcis he is hot iikadkd oven
PP to rashness. These phases of his char-
PP acter aiea matter of common knowl-
PP edge. Tin: Rki'Uiilican does not
PJ care to assert that these discrepancies
J wholly unlit him for the olllce to which
PJ he aspires, but is he the perfect man
H "the only"would have joubellevcV Do
PJ these qualities add to his lltncss for
H olllce? We would say no, vciy decid-
PJ cdly, and cite you the following In-
H stance of Mr. Cionqulst's hotheaded-
PJ ness, lashness, foolishness if you will,
H to show jou that it is entirely possible
PJ that other men could occupy the com-
H uiissloncr's chair w ith as much credit
PJ to themselves and the county as could
PJ Mr. Cionquist.
Wk About three years ago Mr. Cronquist
PJ found It nccessai to place a spill-gate
PJ in the Richmond-Logan Canal. He
PJ went up the canon by O. C. lilumel's
PJ land, and put in his gate. Mr. Ulu-
PJ inel went to Mr. Cionquist and told
H him the light of way would cost him
J -$10.00. Mr. Cronquist Hew oil the
PJ handle, scouted the Idea of paying any
J money for a light of way, and refused.
tl The matter was put Into the hands of
IBfeflf' lawyeis and tinally a compiomisc
TL 7 agiecd upon. Mi. Cionquist tailed to
PJ ' keep his part or the compromise and
PJ the matter went Into coin t. After
H considerable litigation, Mr. Cronquist
PJ again compiomlsed with Mr. Rlutnel,
this time by paying him $175.00. Mr.
J Cronquist had the added expense of
U his lawyeis and all court costs, so that
H his hot headed ness, rashness In this
H instance could hardly have cost him
J less than $,"oo. As a lesult the assess
fl incut on the stock of the Logan-Rich-PJ
liiond Canal is now IK) cents wlieic It
U was but 45 cents.
PJ Tin; Rki'uiii.ican docs not care to
H claim that .loo Knowlcs is a Jay Gould
PJ or Picrpont Moigan when it comes to
J handling money, but could he do any-
H thing moie ridiculous than this? Mr.
H Cionquist could have paid $10 and
PJ everything would have been well, but
H that rcmaikablc Judgment of his said
"no, tight It and then pay $175, plus
PJ lawyeis fees, costs, etc." Is such a

Just think about this, votcis, and
remember that theso facts aie a mat

Holton and Nebeker
Much has been said about the com
paiative woitliof Mi. Frank Nebeker
and Mr. F. J. Holton, as attorneys,
and our Dcmociatlc friends make the
comparison cry odious to Mr. Holton,
who Is the Republican nominee for
District Attorney. Tin: Rki-uhmcan
lias learned to follow up the assertions
of Democratic oratorsand nowspapeis,
and tinds tliev aie made without the
stilctcst legard to facts. It Is so in
tills instance. Wehcie present from
the recoidsof ISox Elder County the
following tabulation wlilch will tlnow
some light on the mciits of Mr. Ne
beker as a piosccuting attorney. This
list Includes all-the cases that have
been tried in ISox Klder during Mr.
N'cbekcr's tciin. it doesn't Include
the cases where tlieie has been no
There have been a total of ten cases
and the record shows that in live
the defendants' lawyers secured a ver
dict of not guilty, as against Mr. Ne
beker. In one case thiough the Inattention
and caielessness of Mi. Nebeker the
criminal escaped and the county lost
a bond In the sum of $500.
In another case it was decided that
tho. person whom Mr. Nebeker was
pisecuting for criminal assault was in
sane and he was discharged.
In the two lcnialnlng cases, the jury
returned a veullct of guilty of lesser
ollenscs than chaiged In the Informa
tion as prepared by Mr. Nebeker.
This does not prove that Mr. Ne
beker Is not a good piosccuting attor
ney, but It does prove that In eompai
ison with other lawyeis lie Is not the
whole tiling. In cases wheichohad
to go up against other lawyers In a
trial, he failed to establish himself in
a single one of the ten cases. The de
cision was either squarely against him,
or else there was a conviction for some
lesser offense. Of these ten cases, Mr.
Holton was attorney for the defendant
in four, T. D. Johnson in two, JS. II.
Jones and Ricey Jones In one each,
J. Call and Nels Jensen In the other
other two.
This Isn't campaign buncombe, vo
ters; these facts are a matter of record.
We again advise you to Investigate
carefully every statement made by
"the only." And for that matter
investigate caiefully every one of our
own, but don't accept Democratic as
sertions that we aie wiong until jou
yourself have Investigated. The Re
publican has a list of these cases, with
number, dates, and further paitlculais
If they are desired.
TiibRki'Uhlican contends that Mr.
Holton Is as thoroughly qualltied for
the district attorneyship as is Mr.
Nebeker. Meet him, shake hands
with him, talk with him, go to the
public meetings and hear him discuss
public questions, and wc believe you
will be convinced that he is not the
uneducated, unqualified man "the
onlv" would have you believe.
So Judge Ilait hasn't paid $500 into
tho democratic campaign fund, eh,
and Judging fiom "the only's" asser
tions he would not be guilty of con
tributing more than a box of bad
clgais. How do you like that demo
crats? You people who have continu
ed to elect Judge Hart to olllce unfcll
he has received $0,000, what do yon
think? Don't you really think It
would be but fair for him to contrib
ute pretty heavily for that snap vou
have been giving him? Couldn't ho
almost afford to pay the expenses of
the wholo campaign In this county?
And say, he's asking another $111,000
of you and yet according to "tho
only" he hasn't contributed $500 nor
anything like it. Is it because tho
Judge fears that would be a poor in
vestment this time?

The Courthouse Affair
Facts About that Democratic Mare's Nest
which the Voters should Know.
Although theic has been newspaper
discussion oT various phases of tho te
ccnt unfortunate dilllcultles at the
com t house, a plain statement of facts
biought out in audit, contest case and
trial, lias never been made. In Justice
to democratic partisans whom tho
local organ of opposition has strenu
ously tried to mislead in this matter;
In Justice to the Independent- vptcis
who, knowing the facts, might be in
clined to cast their votes dllTeiently;
and In Justice to lcpubllcanswho have
never seen a lesumeof the whole af
fair from beginning to end. It is
deemed advisable to present the mat
ter at this time. The following Is a
plain statement of facts taken fiom
lecords now on Hie. ALL VOTERS
LY. Not long after the picsent County
Clerk had taken chaige of the Clerk's
ofllec he lecelved and tiled a monthly
leportof the county treasuicr show
ing the amount of money on hand in
each fund.
A comparison of this leport with
tho books of the county auditor dis
closed a discrepancy of several thou
sand dollars. A careful examination
of the accounts failed to levcal the
cause and upon one occasion Mr. Lar
son called the cx-audltor's attention
to the fact that the gencial fund as
shown by the county audltoi's lodges
did not agtec with the amount on
hand as shown by the treasuier's
The ex-audltor after thinking for a
moment assured Mr. Larson that it
would come out allrlglit and admon
ished him to study It out.
The Logan Journal of the date of
October 17th, 1003, assured the people
that had either the ex-clerk or the ex
ticasurcr been called in they could
have pointed out the trouble and
remedied It In a very few moments,
yet upon this occasion the ex-auditor
did not appear to think there was any
thing to Ilx up and the Journal even
at and for some time thereafter In
sisted that everything was straight
and all that was necessary to balance
tho accounts was to enter a iccolpt or
two that had been Inadvertently
omitted. However the piescntcleik
called the attention of the county
commissioners to tho affair and they,
after consulting the oounty attorney,
ordered that an audit of the Clerk's
books of accounts bo made.
The auditing committee completed
and tiled their report In Oct.ll)0.J,which
showed a discrepancy of about $1300.00
between the books of tho auditor and
treasuicr. Later, an audit of the
treasurer's books was made. The
former democratic olllclals had been
requested to appear bofoio the boaid
of county commissioners and explain,
wlilch thoy did, and upon that occa
sion tho ex-audltor still maintained
that there was nothing wrong and
tried to dismiss the wholo matter
--y -
with ridicule and a wave of his hand.
The ex-county tteasuier had no ex
planations to otfer, other than the
neglect of the two ex-county auditors
to audit his books, although the ex
tieasuier had many limes lequcstud
it to be done. Had it boon done as
the Statutes piovlded, he would hae
been able to have detected the diller
nee befoie. The ex-trcaruier asked
the commissioners to have the audit
of his books go back four vcjiis, the
full time that he was treasuicr, and
a committee was appointed by the
Hoard at their next session for that
purpose. This committee commenc
ed an audit of the receipts and (lis
buiscments in the tieasuier's ctllce
soon after, but In the meantime the
ex-ticasurer, having become alarmed
over the situation, requested the priv
ilege fiom W. C. Paikinson, the pics
ent county tieasuier, of auditing the
books of account used by the county
treasurer during the cars 1000 and
1001. Treasurer Parkinson being na-'
turally courteous and obliging extend
ed to the ex-treasurer the privilege.
It Is presumed that the ox-ttoasurer
in connection with others made a care
ful audit of his books of account.
However the result of that audit has
never boon disclosed, and when re
quested bv the county auditing com
mittee to furnish them a copy of tho
same he refused.
However, the auditing committee
proceeded to carry out the Instruc
tions of the county commissioner and
in due time disclosed the result of
their labors. It is now evident that
the result of this cx-tieasurer's Investi
gation, together with the knowledge
tltat a committee would soon make
known the exact amount of shortage
and would be called upon to pay the
same, led those interested to cast
about for some means of diverting the
suspicion of the public that any prin
cipal had embezzled the money.
The ex-treasurer then (after con
sulting with Ills democratic friends It
Is supposed) conceived the idea that a
substitute could lie found and
now fouitcen months after he
had discovered the crime he
comes to the county attorney and
gravely tells him a certain person in
his employ had during the fall of 1002
cmbe.lcd the county funds and at
the eumii time preferred chaiges of
falsification of the books of account
In his olllce during the years 11)00-1.
Thls.knowledgo had been In tho pos
session of the cx-ticasuier and ex
clerK for over a year.
The county auditing committee
presented their final lecoil on Match
10th, 1004 and on April 5th the ex
ticasurcr made final settlement of
$1177.81 the dlffcience between this
amount and that reported by the and
itors consisting mainly of concessions
made by the board to Mr. Hendricks.
Our dcmociatlc friends claim that
they discovered the petson who as

Defeated Again.
Poitland, Oi.. Oct. 20. -The Utah Tm
Agilcultural college was defeated to- IIP
day In a football game by the Multuo- fflp
inali club bj a scoie of 20 to o. Igjl
The Hist two touchdowns weie made S'l
cattily by tho home eleven, but after $j&.
tho third klck-olf the Utah team made H
sovnty yards by straight lino piling- vjj
lug thiough what has boon considered
Multnomah's almost Invincible line. ; jjl
Utah all but scored, when It was final- ! jfjl
ly held foi downs on Multnomah's ten- ; jj
yatd line. After that Multnomah had ; h
the best of the game thiough both ffil
halves, and found Utah's defense east- fil
ly biokcn over. JPI
The only feature that' saved the ; jj'J
game from being altogether colorless j fiJ
was that seventy yaids of steady Ml
plunging on the part or Utah. Every HI
Inch or It was hard earned and it took jl
tlnee downs almost every time to Htl
make yardage. , Hi
Over at Denver on Saturday the ill
University of Utah defeated the U. of ' 11
C. to the tune of 12 to 0. It was "a 1
punting game characterised by seusa- HI
tlonal runs" says the dispatches. The ' al
University boys played a good game Mil
and deserved tho success that was . pal
thclis. Despite the unsportsmanlike
conductor that bunch toward the A- (111
C. of U. there are none here but gloiy . JM
In the success of the Salt Lake boys. jl
It rellects a glory on the entire state fl
The "stay-at-homes" or the A. C. ot 1
U. football squad, masquerading under ; j(l
the title of the "second team," nearly &
bucked the football braves from the iJ
"Injuntown" Academy oft of the east II
bench on last Saturday. From the i ,11
very beginning of the llttlo footoall 'lil
pow-wow theie was nothing doing but j 5 J
buck and run, and the "Scrubs" ete tjlj
unkind enough to want to do all of It. , II
They did It, and the Indians, pulling II
ttieir blankets around themselves, l
turned their faces towards the smoky If I
north, and "hiked" homewaid with a R
score of 25 to 0 chalked against them J"l
in the football ledger. j uM
It was a genuine pleasuie to see the vl
"Scrubs" pla, as they had speed as j j'l
well as strength, and most or the team 9 M
had been "in that thar place befoie." !?HB
Lang ton's work at quaiter, Connely's 'l
line hitting, and Cobnut's 05 yaid run ill
for a touch-down thiough tackle, were III
the blight features of the mix-up. Ev- lB
Ideutly to the jouugsteis fiom the Mm
noith football was a new piopositlon, iV(m
and the team showed a woeful lack of H?B
coaching and cxpcilcnce. On the do- ifl
fensivo and offensive they could do KM
nothing, while the locals, exerting ,
themselves but little, did as they M
pleased. Roth aggregations arc light, .
and their weights are about even. It Ml
is not worth while to give a detailed il
write-up of the game, because It was j'l
so grotesquely one-sided. ,
In the second eleven the A. C. has a l
bunch of promising players, and witli I'l
a little more coaching, should be able 1 m
