were allowed; the amount of warrants redeemed and canceled during said
six months, and the amount of county and road warrants outstanding on the

(Seal) VICTOR P. MOSES,
They Present but Five Names
for Primary Election A
The unterrified in Benton are
compelled to go into the primary
election with only five names on
their county ticket. These are,
Victor Moses for clerk, M. P. Bur
nett for sheriff. Harley Hall for
recorder, W, A. Buchanan for treas-J
urer, and Thomas Jones for sur
veyor. Neither has opposition on
his own ticket. Mr . Jones has so
far no opponent on the republican
A strong effort was made by the
democracy to fill up the ticket. The
evening before the time for filing
announcements expired, an inform
al meeting of the local unterrified
was held with a view of getting
candidates for state senator, repre
sentative, county judge and com
missioner. The conference . lasted
until a late hour but without re
sults. E E Wilson was strongly
urged to allow the use of his name
for county judge, and Thomas
Callahan eiiher lor the judgeship or
commissioner. Both declined to
become candidates. After much
discussion, it was determined to let
the rest of the ticket go over until
after the prim ry election when the
vacant places can be filled by pe
The difficufty in getting candi
dates is not due to lack of interest
or fear of the outcome of the elec
tion. The general concensus cf
opinion at the meeting was that the
unterrified never had so much
ground for assurance in an appeal
to the people as now. The admin
istration of Governor Chamberlain
whose vetoes have saved the people
enormous sums of money in taxes
is in itself a powerful appeal to ev
ery man who has to pay taxes.
One bill that he vetoed at the last
session carried an appropriation of
.$70,000 alone. It was for a pro
posed new state building at Salem
which was entirely unnecessary.
It was through his efforts that the
million" dollar appropriation bill
was kept in a shape so it could be
vetoed by the people. With state
taxes only half what they were
formerly, the unterrified have some
thing on which to bid for support
In Benton, it has been the rule
of the democrats to always put up
for office only men of perfect quali
fications. This is seen in the ad
ministration of the sheriff's office
by Telt Burnett, and of the clerk's
office by Victor Moses. There are
no better officials. There are few
as good. These things set up an
air of stability and reliability that
give the unterrified a right to ap
peal to the people for support with
a very large, degree of confidence
that the people, who always recog
nize and reward merit, ' will look
with unusual favor on the claims of

Cough Remedy. It is kept on hand contin

editor of the Independent, Lowry City, Mo.
That b just what every family should do.
When kept at hand ready for instant use, a
cold may be checked at the outset and cured
in much less time than after it has become
settled in the system. This remedy is also
without a peer for croup in children, and
will prevent the attack when given as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, which can only be
done when the remedy is kept at hand. For
