The ticket nominated by thoHepubli caus of Holt county on thu l'JIh, l con ceded on all hands to be ono of the best ever nominated by lho party. While U is truu that some liltlu dissatlslaetlou exists as to onu or two men, tlio objec tions are of a purely personal character and should not enter tlio campaign. lho men nominated aro every way well qualified for thu various positions for which thov have been nominated, and there can bo no jiibt reason offered for "scratching" a single iiamo on the ticket At tlio head of lho ticket will be found Ihe name of Jonas Whitmcr, of Liberty township. Ho Is a man ot abil ity, a successful farmer possessed of ex cellent judgment und of spotless char acter. He has been a ro.idcnt of Holt county for a number of years, and is well and lavorably known to our peo ple. Mr. P. P. Wolty, of Renton township, was ehosen to take iu the revenues of tlio coming two years. Mr. Welly Is a member of the popular merchant firm ot Welty Urn's & Co., of Mound Citv. IIo is I u young man of Horlmg character, and everyUDuy in tho county can rest per fectly easy lu the belief that every dol lar of thu people's inonov coniiiir into Us f0T, hands will bo honestly accounted No Republican can oll'ur any good reason for "scratching" Peter's nnnio.

IIo is atpresout a prosper- orchaut of Maitland, is peculiarly vuallfled to fill tho position of fwol Sheriff and is very popular witli tho peoie. Wo havo every reason to bo tiyi that ho will be olected by a rous iiinajonty. Vto do not bellovo that a better solec tiol was possiblo than that mac'o by nominating David S. Alkiie, of Wost nbwis township, for Circuit Clerk. IIo Is n brilliant young man, who just n low yours ago gradnatod from the law Softool of tho State University. His cx- perionco nnd famlllarty with tho law omliioutly qualifies him for this position. Mr. Alkiro will doubtless fill tho posi tion to the satisfaction ot tho bench, bar and pooplo. For County Clock, Henry Richards, of Last Lowls towusliip, was nomlna- ted, Mr. Richards is porhaps among tho truest typo of tho self-made voting man. lie came to Holt countv w It li his parents from Indiana in 1807. In 1870 7 ho attondod tlio Normal School, saw ing wood and doing various chores to pay for his tuition; by eloso application to Ins studies lie soon qualified himself for clerical duties, and in '78-9 ho was made deputy Circuit Clerk, under Win. A. Gardner. In February, 1870, ho was Hindu deputy County Clerk, which po sition lie now holds,' not only with cred it to himself but to the county. He hns no superior In tho county as a correct clerk and accountant. His largo expe rience as deputy County Clerk, pecul iarly qualifies him for the poiition of County Clerk. Ho oast his first voto in Oregon in 1878. Ho niairied in Or- gou. no owns ins rcsiueneo lu Uregon. His children flrstgmw the light ol day in Oregon, and In) is in every sonso of tlio word nn Fast iJowis township boy. Henry Richards I j-a true specimen of what the plow-boy can mako of himself by close application to his studios and business. Wo bellovo that the farmers and biiflncfs men' of Holt county will put him in tho oflleo of County Clerk by n liandsomo majority. Robert Lyon, of Union township, re ceived tho nomination for Recorder af ter an exciting contest. Ho is at present tlio efficient postmaster at Craig; a man of excellent buslnoss'quallllcatiuiis, and of high moral worth. For Prosecuting Attornoy, tho nom- ineo is Samuel F. O'Fallon. He is not only a young man of line abilities, but of sterling character, and is ono of tlio most promising young attorneys in thu Platte Purchase It there is n young uinu deserving of your support, Mr. Voter, it is Sam O'Fallon. The nominee for Treasurer, is John Hueher. Ho has lived lu our county .sine-- cnlldhood..

Tho ability of Luko R. Knowles, thu nominee for Probato Jtidiru. is well known to overy voter lu Holt county. IIo has for a number of years beoa our most cllljiont Prosecuting Attornoy, and wo all can say with holiest convic tions that Holt county lias never had an abler attoi ney. Ho will make ono of tho best Piobato Judges that ever sat on the bench iu thu county, Ilcj is a sterling young man, popular among tho ranks of both parties, and will com uianil many of tlio Democratic votes. For Judgo-ut-Largo, Mr. Richard Col lUon, of Clay township, was nominated. uu ims uuiuiuiuru uucil 1110 OI11C0 I0V a number of years, and Is therefore on tirely conversant with tlio duties of tlio position. Ho is universally known and respected. George Audurson, of East Lowls, is the uominco for County Judge from tho Hrst District.

Tho Democrats, by tlio aid of n largo nttoudanco of Republicans, had' qtiito a rcspcctablo mcctiug horo Satur day evening. Tlicro wcro nboutns many Democrats out to hoar Senator Cook roll as thoro wcro Republicans in niton danoo nt tho primary n week ago, and nothing liko tho enthusiasm. Mr, Riirncs was also present, but excused himself from speaking on the ground of ill health. Senator Cockreli then was introduced and spent about nn hour . anil thirty minutes in defending his par ty against tho chargo picferred by our Greenback friends, that thoro is no dif ference between tlio Democratic and Republican parties, except that tho' Democratic party is always from four to eight years bolilnd tho Republican party and constantly coming forward and occuplng its old camping grounds. Ho assorted that, on tho contrary, the difference between tlicso parties is as distinct and well defined as it was du ring tho war, and at nny other tlmo. Ho claimed for it the honor of having opposed, and finally defeated tho old Federalist party of which Georgo Wash ington, Chief Justice Marshall, John Adams, ami Alcxnudor Hamilton wero members, tlio party through whoso in fluenco tho Constitution of thu United States was adopted. Ho claimed for it tiio honor of having opposed nnd crushed tho graud old Whig party, un der tho inspiration of which our entire system of internal improvements was mado a permanent part of our national policy.

"To-day," said he, corruption ttalks throughout tins land; and, if you wish to prcservo tho uonigii institutions of this country to j our posterity, you must banish fraud and corruption from tlio public coun- ens. t,et tlicro bo a united effort Hint lorruption may not prevail in this coun try: and, to secure this end. voto for Jamos N.

Our Democratic friends looked as il they regarded this as ad- ico lo give up the contest. If this nd ice bo taken and it curtninlv should lo Hurnos will never seo victory in this Congressional race. Charley Doohor, of Savannah, was then introduced, nnd tried to defend Mr. Durnes njndnst tho ehnriros that would bo made against him. He in formed us that I hero is as much dlffnr- onoo between tlio Ropubllcan and tho uomocrallo candidates, as there is be tween tho parlies, and Senator Cook. roll had just finished a labored argu ment to prove that dlfforenco radical and well defined.. Ho then said that. Mr. Heed is an liniiorablo, honest mau, and a lawyer ol considerable ability.
