duced Uol Hepbuin For an hour and a half Col Hepburn held closest attention of the crowd which filled the seats and aisles of the court room A more effective or a more pleasing speech is not often heard Col Hepburn began with hearty praise of the manner in which the convention had been conduc ted and called upon every man who be lieved in republican principles to ratify its action at the polls He then passed to a dlscnssion of the issues of the cam paign The bogie issue of militarism thoroughly demolished There was not a man republican who listened to his tribute to the grand army which held the1 destiny of country in its grasp at the closeof of the rebellion who remembered how that army of a million of the best drilled and equipped and bravest men in histo ry hau quietly disbanded and taken up peaceful pursuits who did not believe him when he declared that militarism was a false issue that if the million sol diers In 1805 far from being a menace were the delense of the nation they loved the hundred thousand soldiers of 1UOO the sons of theveterans of the civil war had no threat toward the country in whose service they were proud to fight Col Hepburn threw new light on the false issue of imper ialism The passages he read from the Filipino constitution showed that Ag uinaldo whom the democrats want to place in authority over the islands seeks to become the dictator rather than the president of the socalled republic The stable government whiuh the demo cratic platform demands would place Aguihaldo and the small minority which he represents in authority over the whole archipelago and those who think that he would ask the consent of the governed after once being estab lished in power have little conception of his character The money question and the tariff question received some of Col Hepburns time and the speech was a finished and powerful exposition of republican policies and republican prio ciples At its conclusion the conven tion adjourned with three cheers for the speaker and for the county ticket Shaw tor Supervisor The lirst supervisor district com posed of the townships of Lincoln Washington and Carl held its conven tion at Only one namewas men tioned for the nomination for supervis or that of W O Shaw of Lincoln township and the nomination was made by acclamation Ceunty Central Committee At the meeting of the county central committee an organization was effected by the reelection of Arthur R Wells of Corning as chairman Plans for the campaign were discussed and while no definite steps were taken it was the sentiment of all that the work of organ ization should be vigorously prosecuted and the members of the committee ap peared to bethoroughly in earnest in their desire for the complete success of the partjy and to be more than willing to do their full share of the work The Ticket The county ticket is one which de serves the support of every republican in the county There is not a man whose name appears on it who is not capable of filling the oflice he seeks And we believe that the whole ticket can be elected To this end THE UNION UEPUBUCAN will labor until the close of the campaign and it urges every man who has at heart the good of the party to unite in the efforts that Chairman Wells and his assistants will make to secure the endorsement of the ticket at the polls Par Clerk L E Stanley who was renominated for clerKof the courts by acclamation has heldthe oflice for the1 past woyears and has made an officer to whom the most partisan democrat could not ob ject He has Oiled theoffice with credit to himself and to the party wbfch placed him in nomination and we have no doubt thathe will be reelected He made a great race two years ago and he is stronger now than he was then Mr Stanley was born in Ohio in 1833 and removed tothis county in 1873 He located in Grant townshipafterwards removing to Union where he lived un til he came to Corning to take charge of the clerks ofllce For Auditor Pierce Metz the nominee for auditor is one of the prominent business of Corhing There is no one who knows hfin who doubts that he would make an excellent auditor He has a business training and business ability and it may be safely predicted that his administration of the office would be thoroughly satisfactory tothe people of the county Mr Metz has been an earnest and active republican and has made many speeches in the county dur ing his residence here He has taken a great interest in matters connected with the state militia and was lieuten ant colonel of a Kansas regiment for several years The people of the county will make no mistake ia electing him to otlice For Recorder A M Graham the nominee for recor der has been a resident of Carl town ship for a number of years Be is a man of excellent clerica ability and will be a careful and accommodating otlicer No man could stand higher in his home community and we believe that there is not a man who would anything against him He is an old soldier hav ing been a member of Company E Third Iowa cavalry He enlisted at the age ofsixteen and has an honorable record For County Attorney For the office of county attorney tha republicans have named a product of the county James H Peregrine is a young man whose father was a practic ing attorney in this county years ago The nominee is a young man of excel lent attainments and ability He is a graduate of Parsons College Pairlield and of the Jaw department of the State University having been admitted to the bar upon graduation from the latter in stitution We believe he would fill the ofiice of county attorney to the satisfac tion of the people of the county and with credit to himself For Supervisor The nominee for supervisor in the first district W D Shaw is spoken of in the highest torms by those who ought to know mm neighbors He is a progressive and successful farmer and the people of the three townships composing the district will place a strong man on the board if they elect Mr Shaw The nomination was not Bought by Mr Shaw and he accepted it only at the solicitation ofmany friends He ought to be elected OLD SOLDIERS REUNION Meeting oi the Old Soldiers at the County Brooks The annual reunion of the Adams County Veterans association will be hald next week at Brooks The gath ering there last year was so successful ia every particular and so full of pleas ure
