All Are Capable Men and Are Deserving of the
United Support of the Party-Republicans
Should Go and Vote Next Tuesday.
The republicans of Bear Lake coun
ty present to the voters this year a
ticket composed of men who are well
worthy the support of every republi
can in the county.
On the legislative ticket are two
men who have served the people well
and faithfully—Alfred A. Hart for
state senator and Fred C. Evans tor
Mr. Hart has never had any legisla
tive experience, but he has held the
office of county superintendent of
schools tor six years. His experience
in school work will give him a good
insight into the needs of legislation
along educational lines, and if elected
to the senate he can be relied upon to
stand for the enactment of conserva
tive laws only. Mr. Hart is a man of
few words but he is a student and
thinker, and no measure would ever
receive his support that smacked of
socialism. Buch men as Mr. Hart
are needed in the legislature to act aa
balance wheels against the radical el
ement which is always represented to
a more or lesa extent In the legisla
Fred C. Evans represented the peo
ple or Bear Lake In the Twelfth legis
lature and he was looked upon as
one of the solid men of the house
during that session. He is now serv
ing the people as commissioner from
the Third district and his record in
this office has fully demonstrated that
he is clean, honest and upright in
dealing with his fellow men. We be
speak for Fred Evans the unanimous
support of the Bear Lake republicans
next Tuesday, which means that he
will have a voice in framing the lawa
to be enacted by the legislature next
For the important office of clerk,
auditor and recorder the republicans
have a most capable man In the per
son of Francis M. Winters, who has
been a resident of the county for
many years. He served one term as
assessor some years ago, and held the
office of postmaster in Montpelier for
eight years, in which he gave the pat
rons excellent service. The records
were at all times In good shape and
when he turned the office over to Mr.
Robison, the present Incumbent, hia
books balanced to a cent. The office
which he Is seeking Is one that re
quires careful and efficient work and
Mr. Winters is capable of giving the
county Just that kind of service. He
is geniaf and obliging and the patrons
of that, office will find him always
ready to reapond to their requests.
It has been a number of years since
a Montpelier man has held the office
of sheriff and now that the republi
cans have a capable and popular can
didate for that office, in the person of
John J. Jones, we believe that the
people will honor him with election
by a good majority. Mr. Jones has
been a resident of the county for over
30 years. For the past 12 years he
has been manager of the Jones-Rob
Ison clothing and gent's furnishing
establishment in Montpelier. Hia gen
eral experience in public affairs make
him especially well qualified to dis
charge the duties of sheriff. If elect
ed he will enforce all laws without
fear or favor.
That Jim Dunn, the present asses
sor, will be re-elected by his usual big
majority, no one questions. Jim has
given the people most excellent ser
vice and ia the most popular official

few more case, than thee were at
tlms have it in mild form. The
health officers are doing everything
possible to prevent iu spread and It
is believed that by another week the
situation will be much Improved,
However, this depends to a large ex
tent upon the people themselves. If
they will continue to observe closely
the board of health rules, it will ma
terially aid in stamping out the dis
ease. We believe that everybody has
come to fully realize that it is a
■ /matter that is not to be treaed lightly,
and are gladly submitting to all rules
in an effort to stamp out the disease.

been only three deaths from the dla
ease—Mrs. John A. Bagley, Ezra Vere
Phelps and Fred A Ournlg.
Vere Phelps, as be was familiarly
known, died at 6 o'clock last Monday
norning. He was the son of Mr. and
Ära. Ezra J. Phelps, and was 24 years
of age. A week ago laat Sunday be
went to Salt Lake to take tha examin -1
atlon for promotion from fireman to
thia county has had for many y «ara.
Everybody knows and likes Jim Dunn 1
ind they Just can't keep from vot
inc for him.
Arthur 1*. Pendrey, candidate for
treasurer, is one of Bear Lake coun
ty's most estimable young men. For:
several years past he has held a po
sition in the Bear Lake State bank at
Paris. He is a good accountant and
in every way qualified to keep the fl-i
nancial records of the county in such
shape that he can tell at a glance the ;
exact condition of the various funds.
John Orimmett. candidate for pro
bate Judge, needs no introduction to
the people of the county. He has held
that office for four years and-is fa-.
miliar with the probate lawa of the
state. If elected he will always be
found at the office ready to reapond
to he requests of those requiring hia
D. C. Kun*. who is a candidate tor ;
re-election as prosecuting attorney,
like Jim Dunn, has always bean » 1
vote getter, and we predict that he
will keep up hla past record next !
Tueaday. Judge Kuns t record as j
prosecuting attorney has been a good !
one. and he ia deserving of a second i c
term. There la nothing that we could i
say that would add to his strength In
the county. The only doubtful quea
tlon Is, which will receive the largeat
majority, he or Jim Dunn. ;

These are the government reports,

the Influenza quarantine, no meetings
have been held for several weeks.
With reports In from only tour out of
