There has never been a ticket placed before the voters of Prowers county where each member was t-o thoroughly familiar and well equip ped for the duties he will have to per form as is the republican ticket this year. Beginning at the head of the ticket and going straight down there is not a candidate, who is not equal to filling the office he seeks with both credit and satisfaction to his constit nents. \V. W. Reynolds, candidate for county treasurer, has been tried for two years and made a model oflicer, having saved the county hundreds of dollars during his administration, and performing twice the work of any former treasurer without any ad ditional deputy hire. J. F. Curry, for county clerk, has also held the office for one term and kept the county records up to date in an efficient and painstaking man ner; while at the same time being bo obliging aud accomodating as to make all enjoy doing business in his office. Geo. H. Thomas, candidate for sheriff, while only residing a few years ih this county at the new set tlement of Amity, comes to ns with a reputation of having served faith fully and efficiently both on the police force aud in the sheriff’s office in the east. He will make a splen did officer if elected. Frank H. Rosacrans is the candi date for assessor, and has seived in the office as deputy for the past two years and is thoroughly familiar with all the details of this very important office. His work speaks for itself and should insure his election. Prof. J. A. Rosebrough, who is candidate on our ticket for superin tendent, has beon principal of tho Granada school ever since he came to the county. He has held the same principalship longer than any other teacher the county has ever had, and this is certainly the most positive evidence that can be given of his fit ness for the position for which he has been nominated For county judge the republican nomineo is Judge L. F. Blodgett, an able lawyer, who has served two terms as probate judge in Kansas, and has lived in this county since 1880. His standing both in his pro fession nud in vnrious official capac ities is the best and his election will ensure the county three years of an able and honest administration. For that most important office of all, county commisioner, the repub lican candidate is \V. F. McPherson, an enterprising aud successful bnsi ness man of Holly. His capabilities as a business man and his honesty and integrity are of such high char acter that the only fuult the opposi tion have been able to find with him is that he is a business man. He certainly is and a successful one On the general theory thnt all sec tions and all classes of our citizens are entitled to representation on the board of commissioners, ho ccrtaiuly should ho sure* of olootiou.. L. if. Markham, candidate for suiveyor, is both by education and exporiouco eminently litted for the duties of his oilice and has hold it the past three years in a very satis factory manner. The otlico is very necessary and more attention should ho given it than is customary by the voters. For coroner Fred Lee is again a candidate and the emoluments of the otlico are not so great that any one will object to giving him a third term, especially when they recognize the.fact that ho has always been faith fid in the performance of its duties in spite of the small pay. If you write “Hopublican” in the blank space for that purpose on your ticket and let it go at that you will never regret it. County Notes. I From tl.n Holly Chieftain.] F. \V. Brniuard, mnungor of the Alma Bottling works, at Alma Ne braska. bought a forty acre tract west of town this week, lie contem plates starting a bottling factory in Holly in the spring. Town lots are being Hold every clay by tin A. V. S. B. &I. L. Co, and aa every purchaser agrees to erect- a building of a certain size within thir ty days, a regular building boom will bo the result.

He was brought to town and placed under the care of Hr. Wilson who dressed the wound. He will recover, but it will take some time. N. A. Randall, of Independence, lowa, came here last week, purchased Harden & Sou’s stock of groceries, and rented the lirm’s store room, in which he will conduct a grocery and feed store. Before taking posses sion of the store, a large addition will be built on the rear which will greatly increase its present capacity.

Mr. Haherstroh has only been here a few months but in that time ho has be came convinced that property is go ing to advance steadily in| value, and at present prices will prove a profi table investment.

Ah the growth of our already vaHt population produces more and more of the toiling millions, who must “oarn their bread by the sweat of their face,” Home new industry adds itself to the busy hive of American industries. The moHt notable of the I now industries is the cultivation of sugar beets and the manufacture of beet HUgar. In a few short years there have been erected in the United States, 40 beet sugar factories, with a total ca pacity for handling 25,705 tons of beets per day at a cost; including the land owned by the different fac tories of $75,000,000. Those forty factories employ 12,000 laborers in the factory rftid about 40,000 people in the fields, and la*-t year produced about 11 per cent of the sugar neces sary for consumption in the United States. The sugar industry means much to our country os it will, not only, eventually produce all of a great commodity, but employs thousands of our citizens at good wages. The sugar trust is now making an effort to crush the beet sugar factor ies in this country by putting sugar down to iij cents per pound or about or 1£ cents below the cost of pro duction of beet sugar undor present conditons. Their sugar is produced by 50 cents per day, pauper labor in | Cuba and elsewhere and while moHt j if not all of the boot sugar factories in the United States are well backed with capital and are making arrange merit to store their product, it will be an easy task for the sugar trust, to at least seriously cripple the industry in our country unless legislation of the right stripe is indulged in by the next congress. It behooves voters to lay all prejmlice and vote iu the future to 8 Pages NUMBER 20. thoir bout interest. Tho republican party bus fostered every American industry in the lust quarter of a con tury and more, and has in every in stance enacted just and equitable laws for the encouragement of home manufacturers, until now, instead of sending all our money abroad for the different commodities, we are alarm ing the old world by the inroads our manufacturers are making with American goods at their very doors. It will be but a short time until our sugar factories, now in their in fancy, will be able to produce sugar at ta low prices as it can bo prodnc ed anywhere in the world, but now they need and must hayo protection and protection will be grauted by the same party that has granted it to other American enterprises. Kx. SCHUMANN CO. PLEASES. Miss Beard, Contralto, Has Honors of the Evening. MiHH Lillian Beard, contralto, mado the hit of the evening at the concert given by the Schumann Concert com pauy at the Grand lost night. Every number she Hang was enchorod, and after her “Entreat Me Not to Leave Thee, by Gounod, she wuh recalled again and again. Her voice is an unuHiiaily charming one, having a splendid range and suflicient power, being remarkable eHpecially for ith HweetnesH, purity and freshness, and the ease with which it in managed. Sharing with MiHH Beard the en thusiastic favor of the audicu.ee wuh Mjhh Edith Adarnn, the cellist, who is a pretty young women, beautifully gowned, and poHHOHHor of more* than ordinary talent. In the varied style of her numbers hlio showed a i cmnrk able ovenueHH of skill, the result of a masterful technique, and exquisite smoothnoHH, and a tine full tone characterized her playing. Alt. Wul ter E. AlcPhorson, banso, has a melo diouH voice, under excellent control and sang several good things. He was particularly good in the iccita tivo passages of the “PifF-PafT PnfT” song from “Los Huguenots.” The piauist, Mrs. Robert Goldberk, appcuired as accompanist in twelve numbers and ten encores, when sho was not the soloist. The introduc tory number was the Liszt truiiMu ip tion of Gounod’s “Faust Waltz” and although probably everyone in the audience had heard the con.position times without number, it has seldom beeu played with more dash, abandon and true musicianship. Mr- Gold beck is the wife of Robert Ci«'ldb.*ck, a composer of note, and she pla\»d a double number of his well known “Dreaming by the Brook." with “Plantation Echoes,” a cleve r tudy in syncopation.
