r little more than a week distant
those who have the best inter-
I ests of the country at heart
should give the selection of men
. for the various offices careful
I-.- consideration.
rC The office of judge is one of
$ the most, if not the most im-
L portant office to be filled. The
. welfare of the people, the fair
I and equitable adjustment of the
X people's rights, the maintain-
r. ance of law and order, are in
I the harids of the judiciary, and
( it behooves the voter to use his
most serious judgement in cast
s' ing his vote for a man for this
I high office.
; In the honorable J. A. Melville
jL the Republicans of this district
I .. have a man who, from every
possible view, is qualified for
(the office and who merits the
vote of every Republican voter
I in the district.
I Mr. Melville is no stranger to
most of the people of the dis-
1 trict, having been elected dis-
trict attorney in 1904, a posi-
tion which he filled in a most
creditable manner, and demon
s' strating that he stands at the
T forefront in the legal profession,
j and proving beyond any pos-
sibility of doubt his fitness for
judicially determining intricate
I- questions of law, such as are
f constantly arising before the
f judges on the district bench.
He was born and reared at Fill-
' more, in Millard county, attend-
1 ed the public schools, the State
I Normal School, and after finish-
!f ing the latter course, entered
the University of Michigan
law department from which he
graduated in 1898 with signal
honors. In the same year he
was elected prosecuting attorney
of Millard county, and so cap
ably did he fill the office that
paper, almost from its first issue,
had a larger circulation than the
Record, and similar statements
and representations by its paid
hirelings in Salt Lake City to
state officials and others for the
purposeof fraudulently procuring
legal advertising, but since that
organ, in ita blind frenzy at be
ing checkmated, f prints an un
warranted and malicious attack
on this paper, its officers and
stockholders, it is no longer de
serving of any consideration,
and it is now up to its 'launch"
to make good or "forever hold
its peace."
A most distresisng accident
occurred at Lund Tuesday even
ing, by which Mrs. Margaret
Pace ot that place lost her ilfe.
Mrs. Pace was the foster
mother of Mrs. J. A. Root, wife
of m postmaster ot LuniL and
agedCanda partial invalid and
becaifee of the care and quiet re
quired for her comfort qhe was
given a room in a building sep
arate and apart from the pre
mises occupied by the family.
On Tuesday evening, about 8
o'clock, Mrs Root left the room
occupied by tha.old lady to pre
pare supper for her. As she
was on the point of returning
she heard the cry of fire, and
rushing to the door of her own
house discovered the room oc
cupied by Mrs. Pace to be on
Frantic efforts were made to
rescue her but when found she
was dead, death being caused
partially from the effects of
burns received and partially from1
smothering. When Mrs. Root
left the room, as above stated,
there were' a number of quilts
near the stove and by some it
is thought these caught fire, the
flames quickly spreading and
preventing the escape of the un
fortunate woman.
The body was taken to New
Harmony, where funeral ser
vices were held Thursday and
the remains laid to rest. The
sympathy of the community
goes out to Mrs. Root in her
hour of bereavement and distress.
he was twice successively re
elected. Mr. Melville is one of the most
progressive citizens of this sec
tion 'of the state, being interested
in several enterprises that are
doing a vast amount of de
yelopement in the way of open
in thousands of acres of land to
settlement and providing water
for is irrigation.
A man more completely fitted
for the office of district
judge is not to be found in all
this district, and Republicans
should, and all others could
with a certainty that their judg
ment would not be misplaced
cast their vote for him.

Tho federal forces began their"' lH

the city, calmly awaited their ,flH

situation. Rain threatens to'-

Within an hour or two the " ItH
federals were only seven miles S
from the city. '-M
General Diaz says that tho,, H
artillery on tho heights in the -H
outskirts will fire on the loyal ,H
troops. Only if his. outposts are H
driven back will he fight in tho 'H
city. M
Promiscuous fighting seemed 'H
to indicate' that the battle had H
started. It was a false alarm, H
however, as General Beltran H
sent an emissary offering a truce ; 'M
until daybreak tomorrow. This : H
is takon .hero to mean that ; H
Beltran probably will join the ' H
revolution. H
The troops under General Diaz H
were sent back to barracks H
and.conditions became quiet. w H
Thirty sailors escaped from H
the fleet and joined Diaz. A H
few of the federals from General
Beltran's outposts also came H
over to the Diaz cause. H
The advance posts of both il
federals and revolutionists still
occupy their positions. General fcfl
Beltran has 600 federals within H
sight of the city, and General 1H
Zelaya commancls artillery ' 1H
about a mile and a half to the wl
west. H
