Without any fear of suc cessful contradiction, there is no hesitancy in saying he has worked harder and accomplished more for the Democratic party than the combined efforts of his opponents. For thirty-five years in this coun ty, in sunshine and storm, in ad versity, and defeat, he has stood likea bia'wart athlete and mar shalled the scattered hosts, giving cheer to the disconsolate, taking up the Flag of Democracy and waving it defiantly in the face of i defeat, urging those who were disconsolate and sore to renew the attack and try to win the vic tory. He is one man who always smiled in defeat and continued a campaign of warfare against the ' opposing forces.

Being si'ch a splendid type of man, and for years a tire less worker for the principles of Democracy, there is no valid rea son or excuse why the people should not elect him sheriff by a splendid majority.
