FINKS & CO Must Have Money. OUR CUSTOMERS ARE RESPECTFULLY NO TIFIED that we MUST HAVE iltt of tho People. Captain T. A. Blair. In this issue of The News ap pears the name of Capt. T. A. Blair as a candidate for the office of county attorney of McLennan county. It is entirely unnecessary for The News to offer any ex tended introduction of this gen tleman to the voters of McLen r nan county. His ability as a criminal lawyer and his efficiency as a prosecutor is well known to them. Captain Blair is an ener getic, consciencious worker in any undertaking he may engage in, and as his record in this county heretofore shows is a vigorous pros ecutor, handling criminal business with that decision and alacrity that always characterizes the offi cial who knows no guide but pub lic duty. Captain Blair offers his services as county attorney for the ensuing two years, and his announcement will be greeted by hundreds of voters with kind wishes and a determination to give him cordial support. MR. S. A. HOGAN. The announcement of this pop ular gentleman also appears in this issue for the office of county attorney. Mr. Hogan is one of our stanch citizens, has been in "Waco cyer since it was a village and is identified with the progress of the Central city and the match less growth of the county around it. Mr. Hogan has never asked his people for an office before and believes that his first adventure in politics will prove a successful one and that the Dem ocrats of McLennan county will respond in his favor. Mr. Hogan is thoroughly qualified to fill the offi :e of county attorney, having practiced law in Waco eight years during which lie has had a great deal of experience in crimininal practice. If his fellow democrats conclude to honor him he oledtres his entire time and abilities to their service, promising to prove himself a terror to the criminal class. SHERIFF DAN FORD. It would be a waste of space to go into a lengthy introduc tion of our present sher sheriff to the people of McLennan county. Beginning years ago as deputy sheriff he steadily gained in public favor as a trusted peace officer until four years ago he was chosen as our sheriff. He has filled the office creditably for two terms and asks a re-election hap py in the consolation that in all the varied functions of an office like that of sheriff he has been ever true to the trust imposed in him by the people and in every instance has acted with bravery and prompitudc when called by official duties. Dan Ford has made a good officer, there arc few better ones in the state. W. L. BURKE FOR SHERIFF. This gentleman offers in this issue of The News as a candi date for sheriff. Mr. Burke has been Sheriff Ford's chief deputy for two years and no better officer ever served a subpoena or spring a hand-cuff than Will Burke. Cool and collected at all times, he is safe, sure and relia ble. He has the instinct of a nat ural detective and after obtaining a clew to a crime he never ceases his ferreting until the perpetrator is in his grasp. He is indefa tigable in his efforts to run down a criminal when he once gets on his trail and as a general thing he gets his man unless his man quits the earth. Mr. Burke is attentive to his duties and can find as many people in a day when waiting upon the courts or grand juries as any man living. With these remarks The News turns Mr. Burke over to the tender ercies of a kind Provi dence and a critical people with the confident assurance that if he is elected sheriff, his conduct of the office will bear out everything we have said. j. H. LOCKWOOD. In the proper column will be found the announcement of the candidacy of Mr. Tames H. Lock- wood for constable of Precinct No. i. The News takes unusual pleasure in sayiner that no better man could be found for the place. Mr. .Lockwood is a young man of indefatigable industry. Whatever his hand finds to do is done with all his might. In his work in offi cial business he has shown remark able acumen and iudcrment and is one of the most level-headed men in the city. To this he adds pleasing manners and a kindliness ot disposition which has made him a host of friends all over the coun try. He has the unlimited confi dence of all who know him, and no one voting for him for consta ble of Paecinct No. I will ever have cause to regret his vote. CONSTABLE DEE COOK. The announcement of this gen tleman for re-election to the office of constable of Precinct No. i, McLennan county, appears in the proper place in this issue. Mr. Cook has served one term, and every day has increased his popu larity among his friends. By close attention to business his office has been kept in perfect or der and official business in good shape. Dee is a constant rustler and never allows an opportunity to pass when there are papers to serve. Whether it be criminal or civil business he is prompt in his attention to it, and, while he is positive and courteous in his treatment of his prisoners, he is .Ift PI Used in Millions of Homes 4.0 Years the Standard. always kind to them, and never mistreats a man because he is backed by the law. Dee Cook cheerfully points to his record as constable as the best evidence of his fitness for the office, and upon this record he is willing to go be fore the people and abide their decision. HON. JOHN C. WEST. This gentleman, as a candidate for mayor, announced in Thurs day's issue of The News. By some inadvertance notice of his announcement; did not appear that day. Judge West has been iden tified with Waco from its early village daj s, and served as mayor in 1875 and 1876, giving general satisfaction and winning much favor as an honest, energetic, con sciencious executive. Judge West is a man of strong convictions and has a thorough knowledge of mu nicipal affairs. His record as al derman of the Fourth ward shows him to be possessed of strong per ception, being always on the alert, and guarding faithfully the inter ests of his constituents. If elected mayor, Judge West will prove himself equal to every occasion and the city's interests will be in good hands. ALL OVEK TOWN. The contestants for the World's Fair' scholarship has narrowed down to Miss Ruth Evans, Miss Fannie Willis, Mr. Sam Owens and Mr. James Henshaw. The Ladies' Whist olub had a very enjoyable session on Thursday after noon of this week, with Mrs. S. V. Slayden as hostess. The club will bo entertained cost week by Mrs. J. 0. Walker. Mr Murray killed a mad dog down on the river bank this morn ing. It is not customary for hy drophobia to become epidemic at this season of the year but we may look for dogs to suffer for the next few weeks. Those who are looking for bar gains should take in the corner of Austin street and the square. Mr. S. Marx has added another store to his already large one and now fills three stores with a fine stock of dry goods and clothing and is selling at prices that makes people buy. It is one of the best places in the city to buy good goods cheap and don't forget it. Cards are out announcing the betroth al of Mr. Sol Weslow, a rising young attorney of Waco and Miss Sophie Freed, a charm ing young lady of Hempstead, Texas. The betrothal ceremo nies will take place at Hempstead on Sunday next. People in Waco will wish the young couple all happiness. Society Notes. On account of rush of other matter we were compelled to let our society report go over until Monday. That popular depart ment will be full of interesting notes Monday. Ileliof fur'Itloxico.

Flt'TV-DOLLAK Hit,!,. An Almciit-iiiliiilccl ITIan tiutN Into Trouble. New York, Feb. 27. About a week ago, Supervisor French of Brooklyn, in a moment of absent mindedness tore a fifty dollar bill in two by accident and lost one of the pieces, lie forwarded the piece he retained to Washington and asked for a new bill. He was surprised yesterday by a re ply from the treasury department informing him that the other half bill had got there ahead of his and that John Daly, was before him in application for the new bill French lost no time in se curing an interview with D?.ly, who told him that he found half of the bill in a pile of rubbish on Strand avenue and he agreed to withdray his claim for$20. The supervisor refused to accept these terms and the rival claimants will have to fight it out with the treas ury authorities. To tho Lovors of Art In Photo graphy.

Tho New Furniture Mado from this Native Wood, Tho oponing on Wednesday at tho Waco Furnituro Company opened tho oyes of a groat many business men to the new industry inaugurated by this great furnituro company. The new and elaborate work from Texas pine was conspicuously displayed bat it was in direct contact with immense quantities of tho finest furnituro from all the great faotorios ot tho north consisting of all sorts of fine wood used in furnituro making. Visitors, and they wero very many, walked through aisles nearly a quarter mils in longth on oaoh sido of which tho most olaborato and beautiful furnituro was displayed and tho now Texas furniture was merely a factor in open oomparison. But those new goods from our nativo wood foroed admira tion. Side by sido with walnut, cherry, maple, old 16th century oak and long oak with tho finest grains and most beautiful polish the counters and desks of tho Provident Savings office, forced tho most hearty np plauBe. Its great beauty is palpable and the adaptation of Texas pine to tho mauufaoture of tho most beautiful furnituro is unquestionable. In de monstrating this tho Waco Furnituae Company deserves tho thanks of tho entiro stato. It will not be long bo foro furniture from Texas woods will bo fashionable not alono in Toxas but also in other parts of tho oountry. Ono groat beauty abont Toxas curly pine in addition to tho beautiful grain and high polish is its warmth and life and softness of color. It makes othor woods look dull and sombro when plaoed side by side. It is tho most oheorful furniture in tho world and tho grain is a study in its diversity. In tho largo number of small square panels in tho counters of the Provi dent office furniture eaoh ono forms a picturo in itself. Tho fantastio forms assumed by the grain bankrupts the imagination and ono never tires of the sight. Those who have not yot seen this boautiful furniture trom native wood should not nogloct to seo it. Tho Waoo furnituro deserves great praise in showing tho way to a new industry. This has bcon dono only by the expenditure of muoh money, and by the exercise of pluck and per severanoo and by tho ubo of the skill of their workmen who are among the best furnituro makers in the trade. Tho Waeo Furnituie Oomiany carries ono of tho largest and finest stooks of furnituro in the state and by means 01 their immonse wholesale trade will bo ablo to introduoe this now furniturb to tho attention of tho trado throughout tho stato and that it will take liko wild fire is well assured and thus open up a Lew suuroo of wealth to Texas.
