Siemers, nominee for the Legislature, is so widely known that no introduction is needed, hav ing served as the efficient recorder for. the past 12 years. Horn and raised in this county, he is thorough ly acquainted with its needs, being of an observing! nature and having been engaged in various positions. He is no orator and makes no pretense of being one,j but any one conversant with conditions at Jefferson City knows that the demand is not for orators, but for men of honesty, integrity and a willingness to de-3 vote time to a study of proposed legislation, and he can be depended upon not to vote for legislation ob- - jcctionable to his constituents. If there is a possibil- : itv of rijrhtincr the wrongs inflicted on counties by' law whereby the burden of, bridging diversion chan- nels was shifted onto counties, his vote will be for correcting this situation. Vote for Siemers! JUDGE WILLI AM PA ART I Nominee for Presiding Judge! In Judge William Paar, who is again candidate fori Presiding fudge, the Republicans have a man who has the confidence of all, irrespective of party, for he! has proven his ability and honesty by a life-long cit- izenship in the county and in many places of trust. Few men are better posted in county affairs than he, j for coupled with a wonderful retentive .memory he has had much experience, especially during his long service as county clerk. As a man and as an official he has enjoyed an unblemished reputation. Votejor Paar! GEORGE H. MEYER iUlNomineeior Gountv Collector I; a; u . 'j ror Collector, ueorge r1.

I he oresent candidate ; ; ;was, for a number of years, a pronrncnt business i man in Cape Girardeau, being partner of a hardware " firm in Haarig, until he was elected collector of that His conduct of office was such that when the PHILIP C. KASTEN Nominee for County Judge, 1st District j ' Philip C. Kasten, Candidate for County Judge for ti e First or Upper District, is serving his district in that capacity, and has served well. He is a native of Applecreek township, and not only a highly suc cessful farmer, but withal a man of sound judgment and strictest honor. Vote for Kasten! G. JACOB KELLER" i Nominee for'Gounty Judge, 2nd 'Districtl In the Second, or Southern District, G. Jacob Kel ler, of Cape Township, the third member of the pres ent county court, is candidate for re-election. He is a native of Cape township, where he has spent his en tire life and, like his colleague, Kasten, is a success ful farmer. In addition, he is interested in matters in the City of Cape Girardeau, giving- him an inti mate acquaintance with the needsof that city. Yte for Keller! i- f-. ; CltV. next municipal campaign rolled around, which was a hot one, Mr. Mever was solicited by the leaders of the various tickets to also run on their ticket, and he was elected without opposition. . That shows how he stands in his hom' town. If elected, he will go into the county office with the experience and knowledge how to conduct it, both offices being similar. Vote for Meyer! CHARLES B. JAEGER Nominee for Circuit Clerk For Circuit Clerk, Charles B. Jaeger,' of Jackson, is the nominee, and for the first time lie is a candi date for a county office. He is at present a justice of the peace for ISyrd Townshfp and collector of water and light rates for the City of Jackson. He was born at Cape Girardeau and has been living at Jackson for a number of vears. He is thoroughly qualified for the office he seeks, and if elected he will do his, full duty, we feci sure. Vote for Jaeger! J. HENRY 'CARUTHERS Nominee for Prosecuting Attorney . Henry Caruthors is the Republican nominee for Prosecuting Attorney, an office which he has filled with credit for a number of years, and for this reason he was solicited to again become a candidate. Vears ago it was the custom for a young attorney to try for this office in order to gain experience and to become known to the people, only to retire to private prac tice after two or four years. Now it stands to reason that the county is in need of the services of an expe rienced attorney just as much as an individual or a corporation. Mr. Caruthers has the experience and the voters should retain his services. Vote for Ca ruthers! ;7V. DAVID B. HAYS Nominee for Probate Judge H David B. Hays, the candidate for Probate Judge, is a native of Cape county, and a practicing attorney of Jackson. He has much practice in probate busi ness, having familiarized himself with the duties of that office. He is the present mayor of the City of Jackson and well-liked by all. If elected, he can be depended upon to conduct the office with fidelityto duty. Vote for Hays, BLUCHER SPERLING Nominee for County Clerk Hlucher Sperling, the present efficient .County Clerk, is asking the voters for a second term. The word "efficient" is used advisedly and honestly, for such has been the con'duct of his office. Long work ing hours have been his rule, and thus he completed some work, like making out the tax books, before some clerks were half through with the work. In the past three years he has turned into the county treas ury over $1600 co fff-s which he collected from fees earned. I lis records and reports are kept up-to-date biit he always finds time to answer questions and give information and advice. For the past year his duties have been materially increased by being a member of the local draft board, and every one who has had occasion to consult him in regard to questions per taining to this branch of his duties knows that he has always stood ready with information. Vote for Sper ling. FRED H. SCHRADER Nominee for Recorder Fred H. Schrader is one of the most modest men who ever aspired for a public office, but his qualities have made a host of friends for him. He is a candi date for Recorder. A native of Randol Township, he lived there on a farm, serving at times as deputy assessor, until he catae to Jackson to become deputy county clerk. While living in Randol Township he became candidate for the nomination for Assessor in the first primary held in the county, and he received with one exception every Republican vote in Randol Township, and it is said that one single vote' was cast against him by error. That shows what his friends and neighbors thought of him. Two years ago he took the position of bookkeeper in thf1 Cape County Savings I5ank, where he is now employed. A re corder must be very careful to correctly record all instruments, and Mr. Schrader is of that nature which will insure such care. Vote for Fred Schrader for Recorder: FRED A. KAGE Nominee for Clerk Common Pleas Court For the oihee: of Clerk of the Common Pleas Court Fred A. Kage, one of,-the old Republican wheel horses of Cape county, is the nominee. Many years ago he was sheriff of the county and while serving in that office he made a reputation for himself which ex tended far outside of the confines of the coilnty and it is still well remembered. In late years he served several terms as Mayor of Cape Girardeau, has been United States Commissioner, and Justice of the Peace for Cape Township for many hears. He is ab solutely fearless and will do his duty without fear or favor. Vote for Kage! We recommend theseynieri, eve and ask their support of them. REPUBLICAN COUNTY COMMITTEE. ii - 1 il a - 1 ,"1 3
