Ed Olark doaan't need a lot of intro
duction to the voters of Fall River
oounty. HeJiaa rode the range with
practically every old time oow puncher,
and knows praotloally every man,
woman and oblld In the oounty. Some
people say he Is rough and outspoken
but you always know where Ed stands
on atiy question. He has conducted
the offloe of sheriiGf as eoonbmioaliy
and in as good a manner as any man
who has ever held that offloe and in re
electing him the voters are ante of a
good man In the right plaoe. A vote
for him will be appreciated.
L, O. Shirley
Ij. O. Shirley Is the republican oan
didato for register of deeds and we
havS every reason to think that he will
be elected. We base our judgment
-first on the fact that at the primaries
he entered the race against a strong
aa the independent republican
oandidateand won out in good shape.
This of »uree hassaussd few sore
epota for it takes a good man to admit
defeat graoefally but Bert has said
nothing that has. been detrimental to
anyone and has pursued the same up
right policy that has characterized him
during his reaidenoe here and this
poUoy of attending strlotly to his own
business will get htm the eleotlon, He
is a good aooountaqt and will make a
first-class register of deeds.
J. a. Hummel
J. G. Hutnmsl Is tKs way he signs
hie heme but everyone knows him
bettSr as plain Qeorge or
mel. He Is a oandidato for re-elootloh
to the offloe of olerk of oourts on the
republloan ticket. He is another Fall
River oounty product and oomee from
one of the beet families In the oounty.
Qeorge has mads a good offloer and
will get ths eleotlon easily. An
plaosd before his name will help swell
the Majority.

The next on the list Is Clifford Wil

tor Crawford waa asked today regiird
ing a report that he waa being urged to'
enter the senatorial raoe. He aald
there was absolutely no truth in thlT
rsport that It must have been manu
factured out of whole cloth, for ha
never had heard of It. The senator
Said he had jast finished reading a
large number of South Dakota news
papers and that none of them con
tained a memtion of any movement
to get him to enter the raoe. The sen
ator said (further that he had agreed to
abide by the results of the primary
oontoet between hlmslslf and Repre
