A GOOD TICKET
REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES ttR
TOWNSHIP OFFICERS ARB A
WORTHY SELECTION, /v.,
W I S E O I E
The Election of the Men Nominated In
This Branch of the County Serv
Ice la Made a Duty for the
In the makeup of the republican
ticket for Center township, the voters
have a list of candidates that will grace
the positions to which they aspire and
it is a list that makes a bid for support
which should be given heed by every
thinking voter. There are nine men on
the township ticket, who, if elected,
will carry out the wishes of the voters
to the entire satisfaction of the major
ity of the electors of the township.
The oflfces comprise two justices of the
peace, two constables, three trustees,
clerk and assessor.
Berry is Good Material.
The candidates for the post of jus
tice of the
are William Berry and
Edgar F. Johnson. The former, William
Berry, is no stranger to the voters of
the township and has held the post on
a farmer occasion with credit to the
party and dignity to the office. Mr.
Berry has lived in Ottumwa for the
past twenty years, coming here from
Davis county, where he saw the light
of day for the first time in 1861. Two
years ago he held the office of justice
of the peace and since then has been
engaged in real estate and insurance
business. For twelve years he worked
as a cooper in the establishment of
Jerry Seymour and is a resident of
South Ottumwa. The voter can make
no mistake in voting for "Bill" Berry.
With a claim of pioneer in the com
munity and likewise a record as a
peace officer to be envied, Edgar F.
Johnson makes his appeal for the sup
port of the voters of Center township.
Mr. Johnson was born in Ohio away
back in 1852, beginning life with the
new year, and has the optimism to feel
that his next birthday will witness his
being ushered Into the post of Justice
of the' peace. For the past thirty-five
year Ed Johnson has lived In Ottumwa
and eight years of that time was spent
in the service of the city as one of its
peace officers. For two years of his po
lice career he was night captain and
the remaining six years a patrolman.
Since 1896 Ed Johnson has been a fa»
miliar figure about Ottumwa as mer
chants police or watchman of the var
ious stores about the business district.
With the exception of two years of
this time, during which he was ser
iously ill, he has been continually in
the service of the merchants. Mr. John
son was raised on a farm in Poweshiek
county, having come back to Iowa
when 13 years of age, for he had dur
ing 1854 lived in Agency. For twenty
years Mr. Johnson mined coal, having
been employed as a miner in Iowa, In
diana and Illinois. Ed Johnson should
make a conservative and safe man to
preside as justice of the peace.. ,.....
Derby In the Race.
Coming from -a line of republicans
that have been consistent members of
the party in Wapello county since 1840,
W. A. Derby has entered the race for.
the position of constable with the de
termination to be still in the game
when the race finishes. Candidate Der
by is at present serving in the capac
ity of constable and there is no wis
dom in making a change, for "Bill" de
livers the goods. He comes from a line
of Iowa pioneers, for his grandfather,
Charles W. Derby, came to Iowa nearly
seventy years ago. His father, Nelson
Derby, has been a farmer in Adams
township, for many years. Mr. Derby
is a native of Monroe county, but saw
the wisdom of migrating to Wapello
county when four years of age, and
never regretted it. Those who failed to
vote for W. A. Derby two years ago.
Crawley Has Experience.
Clarence Crawley, candidate for the
post of constable, is no raw recruit in
the role of peace officer. Mr. Crawley
is an old policeman of Ottumwa and
has seen eight years' service as a pa
trolman in Ottumwa. Clarence Crawley
came to Ottumwa away back In
and is well known about the city. Since
that time, with the exception of five
years spent in railroading in Minneapo
lis, he* has made Ottumwa his home.
He comes from the ranks of the men
who toil and is a carpenter by trade.
His present incumbency of the office
has been prolific of results that be
speak his re-election to the position.
The voter will make no better choice
for a constable than by
The election of the republican candi

will be the wisest move the voter can
make. The candidates for this office'
come from both city and country. G.
M. Bissell hails from the country and
is among the sturdy agricultural class
that make Wapello county a desirable
locality in which to live and invest. His
colleagues come from both sides of the
river in Ottumwa and are both from
the business walks of life. C. Y. Smith
Is a well known lumber merchant and
manager of the M. B. Hutchison Lum
ber Co. He is also one of the hustlers
who believes in boosting Ottumwa. F.
L. Canfleld is one of the representative
merchants of South Ottumwa. Every
