"BRAD" FOR TREASURER.
The announcement of the j
candidacy of J. A. Bradbury for
the office of county treasurer of j
Idaho county has excited more
favorable comment than any
thing for a long time.
Mr. Bradbury is a democrat in
politics but he is not a politician
a nd during the time he served
Idaho county l>oth as county
auditor and recorder and also as
treasurer, his entire efforts were
directed to reducing the expense,
of maintenance and cost and to ,
tne people oi me couniy.
The present epidemic of high
taxation in the county, state and
nation has been the occasion for
a special effort on the part of the
taxpayers to find a man whose
office record has demonstrated
office record has demonstrated
efficient and economical service.
We take pleasure in giving
; this testimonial on his behalf.

Not until his friends gave him
''the third degree" would August j
Schroeder give his consent to
have his name filed as a candi- j
date for eommissoner in the
second district on the democratic
ticket. Mr. Schroeder is one of
the west side's most substantial
farmers and heaviest taxpayers
and he needs no introduction to
the people here. Should he be
elected, we sincerely believe he
would make an official that the,
county would be proud of.
