Lebanon Pioneer (Newspaper) - October 29, 1914, Lebanon, Indiana TAOS TWO. Willett H. Parr. WHO'S WHO ON THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET^ (Continued from Page One,) among swine, a law against poisoning live stock, a hog cholera serum law, a law pertaining to the control and care of abandoned children, a law to pro-" hibit buying, selling and using of cigarettes by minors, several laws for the benefit of labor, a law requiring wages to be paid semi-monthly, and many others. Mr. Coons will at all times be pleased to show to any person calling at his office the Indiana House Journal of 1913, where his official record may be found on all bills whether or not they became laws. Candidate for Judge. Willett H. Parr, candidate for re-election, has made an enviable record on the bench. The Boone circuit court is regarded as one of the best in the^ state, and, as a result, many cases are venued here from adjoining counties for trial. Judge Parr has been a hardworking and faithful official, and in the performance of his duties has been strictly impartial, upholding the law -with dignity and applying it fairly in the adjudication of the differences between clients. It can be truly said of Judge Parr that he has been a just and honest judge, and that he is today better than: ever qualified for the duties of the office to which he aspires for a second term. Judge Parr is a native citizen of the county, bom four and one-half mile» west of Lebanon, Dec. 24, 1878. His mother died when he was three months old, and he lived with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. William Frank, until their death, after which he made his home with his uncle, Ara Maggard. He attended the country schools in the winter, worked on the farm and in the sawmill of Jacob Wilcox, at Max, and taught school four years in Marion and one year in Clinton township. He attended the Indiana State Normal at Terre Haute in 1897 and the Marion Normal at Marion in 1898. He read law with A. J. Shelby, and was admitted to the bar in 1900. He practiced law with E. O. Rogers for several years, until his election in 1908. In 1902 he sought the nomination for prosecuting attorney, and was defeated by but two votes. In 1904 he made an unsuccessful race for the legislature, but ran ahead of the ticket. Judge Parr is one of Lebanon's substantial citizens, interested in the upbuilding and betterment of the county. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church and the teacher of the men's Bible class, one of the largest men's classes in the Lebanon Sunday schools. He is also an Odd Fellow. In every sense of the word he is a high type of citizen. For Prosecuting Attorney. Pearlus E. Smiley, the nominee for prosecuting attorney, is a son of the late Philip Smiley, of Worth township, and was born in that township, June 13, 1880. He attended the common schools and the Whitestown high school, and graduated from Indiana University in 1910 with the degrees of A. B. and L. L. B. He taught in the district schools of Worth and Jackson townships, and afterward held the position of principal for one year each of the schools at Advance, Graysville, Kennard and Medary-ville. He read law before entering Indiana University with S. M. Ralston. He began the practice of law in 1911. Mr. Smiley was bom and raised a Democrat. Two years ago he was a candidate for the nomination for prosecutor, but was defeated by Vasco Dodson, the present incumbent of the office. He is a member of the Baptist church, a Mason and an Elk. Mr. Smiley is amply qualified for the position to which he aspires, and to which he will be elected next Tuesday. He can be depended upon to enforce the provi'^jions of the law pertaining to the apprehension and punishment of crime, in a fair and impartial manner. Vote for Smiley and reward Pearlus E. Smiley. a young man of merit. Clerk of the Circuit Court. Leonard Titus needs no introduction or commendation at the hands of the Pioneer. Probably no man in Boone county has a more extended acquaintance or is more favorably known than "Len" Titus. He is a son of Eli Titus, one of the well known Democrats of Boone county back in the '70s. He •was born in Clinton township, but has lived in Lebanon, on the site of his present home since he was five years of age. He attended the common schools of Lebanon, and when he attained his manhood married Miss Lottie Bechtell, daughter of J. M. Bechtell, a pioneer manufacturer and merchant of Lebanon. They have one daughter. Miss Helen, a graduate of the Lebanon high school, now attending school at Peoria, 111. Mr. Titus has always taken an active interest in politics. He was twice elected treasurer of the city of Lebanon, with a normal Republican majority of one hundred and fifty against him. He was defeated by James Gardner for the nomination for clerk four years ago, but, true and loyal Democrat that he has always been, Mr. Gardner had no more ardent supporter at the polls. He has served the county committee as secretary, and has for years been prominent in the local councils of his party. Mr. Titus is popular with the people, well equipped for the duties of the office, and will be elected by a large plurality. For County Auditor. Cleveland Goodwin, as his name indicates, is of Democratic stock. Nelson Jackson Parr. John T. Brown. Leorard Titus. He is a son of Ira B. Goodwin, of Worth township, where he was bom Sept 22, 1888, and where he still resides.

He was successful in the civil service examination for rural mail carrier, and for two years and four months se.-ved acceptably as carrier on route 27. By trade he is a painter and decorator, and worked for a year and a half in Indianapolis. He then spent a short time in California. Returning to his home be went into the county auditor's office under B. F, Herdrich, serving for three years, or until the end of that official's term. He became the chief deputy for D. M. Clark who succeeded B. F: Herd-rich, and has been efficient and courteous in his dealing with the public. He knows the details of the office thor-^oughly, and will make a capable officer. Mr. Goodwin is a married man, his wife being a daughter of Noah Harvey, a w/bU jknown citisen of the county. He is k llaion. a Red Han and a member of St 7r otTj^ioH f«r;-rfT f toJiark'« Evangelical Lutheran charch, of Ckvalwitf Qootfwin. Whitestown. FM* OwMtr trnMom!. .

Nelson was bom in Marion township, where he still lives, Sept. i'9, 1869. He has devoted his life chiefly Jo the tilling of the soil. In this he has been successful. For several years past he has been a director of the First National Bank at Sheridan. His family consists of his wife and two sons and one daughter. He has served the Democrats of his precinct as committeeman, and has always taken a keen interest in political affairs. He is a member of the Methodist church at B^ Springs, the Masons, Knights of Pythias and Woodmen at Sheridan. He will be elected treasurer of Boone county ne;!rt Tuesday and will make to the people an honest accounting of their money. His election will be a merited compliment to an honest, faithful, industrious and courteous citizen. Recorder of the County. John T. Brown, of Clinton township, is the Democratic nominee for recorder. Many of the older readers of the Pioneer will remember Mr. Brown's father, "Doc." Geo. W. Brown, who lived in the Holmes Station neighborhood, and was a prominent citizen and an ardent Democrat. John was bom in this county, Sept. 17, 1870, and has resided within the borders of the county; all his life. Leaving the farm east of town he came here and engaged in thé' laundry business for a short time. Here he met with a serious accident, which was probably the cause of his return to the farm. He located in Perry township, where he remained for five years, and then in Clinton township, where he has lived the past twelve years. In 1908 he was elected, as a Democrat, to the office of assessor of Clinton township, and his is the distinction of being the only Democrat ever elected to office in that rock-ribbed Republican township. Mr. Brown married Miss Cora Underwood, a daughter of Gideon Underwood, once a well known citizen of the county, and they have nine children, two of whom are married. Mr. Brown is a good mixer, well liked by the people, and is splendidly equipped for the duties of the office. He is a member of the Christian church at Elizaville and of the Modern Woodmen camp of the same place. Clarence Roberts for Sheriff. Clarence Roberts, the nominee for sheriff of Boone county, is a descendant of Kentucky Democratic stock. He was bom in Jefferson township, where he lives, Sept. 12, 1879, and has spent his entire life there. His mother died when he was three months old, and he was raised by his grandparents, the late Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Roberts. He attended the common schools of his township, and .worked on the farm, cultivating habits of industry and thrift which have served him well in life. His interest in politics developed at an early age, and he has taken an active part in every election since he became of age. He has served his precinct as committeeman. In 1912 he was defeated for the nomination, making a good race. In the convention of last March, in a large field of candidates, he made a steady gain from the first ballot, and landed the nomination. He is a young man with an extended acquaintance. Of pleasing address and courteous manner he readily makes friends. The sheriff's office will be well managed if Mr. Roberts is elected, and a popular and deserving young Democrat will be rewarded for faithful and efficient Clarence Roberts. services in the past. For County Surveyor. Byron J. Moore, nominee for surveyor, is a native of Lebanon, where he was born July 24, 1892. His father, Henry L. Moore, is a well-known citizen and a life-long Democrat. Byron graduated from the Lebanon schools in 1911, and spent a year in Colgate University, New York state. He was appointed surveyor last January, to succeed Walter Whitecotton, who resigned to accept the position of city civil engineer. He is a young man of sterling character, and has conducted the affairs of the surveyor's office in a satisfactory manner. He is attentive to his duties, and courteous and accommodating in dealing with the public. It goes without saying that he will be elected, and that he will conduct the office to the satisfaction of the people of Boone county. The nomination and election of Mr. Moore is a recognization of the young man in Boone county politics. The Democratic party always has attracted the attention of thinking men, and with Wood-row Wilson at its head it appeals as never before to the young men of the county, of whom Byron Moore is a splendid type. Boone county Democracy will do itself credit by recognizing its young men.Candidate for Coroner. Dr. Onis E. Brendel, of Zionsville, is the Democratic nominee for coroner. He is a native of Eagle township, where he was bom Feb. 19, 1883. He moved with his parents, Dr. and Mrs, J. F. Brendel, to Nebraska, at the age of three years, and there grew to manhood.

W HOOTON, Clerk. of the other nominees on the county ticket, but will mention the candidates briefly and hopes to show their faces at a later date as the successful contestants in the election. Wlllard Stephenson, of Sugar Creek township, is the nominee for county assessor. He is a well-known farmer, and is the present assessor of his township, succeeding by appointment the late Si Patton. There isn't in the whole county a higher type of citizen than Mr. Stephenson, and his work in listing the property of Sugar Creek proves his ability. Frank O. Staton is the nominee for commissioner from the first and Calvert L. Creasy for commissioner from the third district. Both these men are farmers, enjoying the highest esteem of their neighbors, and both have a knowledge of public affairs that v/ill serve them well as commissioners. Next to commissioner, there is no office in the county of more importance to the taxpayers than that of county councilman. There are seven of these to elect—three at large and one from each of the councilmanic districts. The Democratic candidates at large are Charles M. McClaine and Luke Nolan, of Center, and Thomas G. Harbaugh, of Clinton—all men of affairs, well known, thoroughly honest and capable. Benjamin B. Cross, of Worth; Everett M. Folk, of Sugar Creek; Carre E. Davis, of Center, and Herbert M. Pointer, of Jefferson, are the nominees from the four districts. They are well fitted for the duties of the office, and will carefully guard the best interests of the people. (ADVERTISEMENT.) Huston Weaver Candidate For County Commissioner Byron J. Moore. Ohle The Other, <i«f|dld«tee^ The Pioneer regretf exceedlnfly ttot.^jW U«^ WiiNf to ■eettft »holMk Mr. Weaver is a farmer, residing on his place of 80 acres in Marion township. He has an extensive acquaintance throughout the county, and Is highly respected by all. He came to Boone county from Kentucky when but ten years of age, and from fourteen to twenty-one of age lived with that staunch citizen. Thomas Jackson, of Perry township, who imparted to young Huston the high Ideals of life. money is not wisely spent, the interests of the public will suffer. In selecting Mr. Weaver as candidate In the first district, the party has shown exceptional discretion, for he is a man of that solidity of character and knowledge of the county's needs, which is not always easily found in one person. He is willing to assume the responsibilities encompassed by the office, and if elected promises the fullest discharge of every duty imposed on him. The Republican party has always felt the necessity of nominating for county commissioners its very best men, knowing that upon these officers rest the responsibility of expending the money which the people pay in the way of taxes, and that if the i|Ir. Weaver is 39 years of age, is a member of the Christian church and of the order of Odd Fellows. Voters who show proper discrimination will find in him the man best qualified to serve the people of the first district as commissioner. CHRISTMAS PHOTOS "A little early," yott say.
