WALTER SPEAKS OF HIS PLANS (Continued Front I'ago 1.) and to pledgo thernsolves to advance thu Interests ot their country lu tho crisis which It faces. Tho Judge, being n candidate, hnd Inadvertently remarked early In the campaign that he Intended to do uo campaigning about tho state nnd as a result ho couldn't attend the got-to-gether gathering In porson, hut ho could wrlto n lettor and so ho sat himself down nnd wrote. And the lettor was n dinger. It has Just co mo to light again, as letters will somo times do, holug resurrected from tho hnnry n re hives of antiquity, but nevertheless still a porfectly good letter, nnd horo is what tho writer writ, in part: I'lrrigett Ills Support. "I doslro to stato that In tho ovent I am not successful lu securing the Itopubllcnn nomination for stato treasurer, I pledgo my unqualified support to him who does securn this nomination uud will do everything In my power to promote his Interests and secure his election In November." Bravo! Scorn one for tho Judge. Knud cheers nt tho mooting us It was rend and hurray for our Hide! But, hold! Inadvertently tho Judge didn't got tho nomination, Something like a Uttlo matter of 118 votes stood be twixt him anil glory. Ay! Thoro'M tho rub! What painful memories nro some times stored nway In nn Jniiocont looking Uttlo letter! That lettor must bo sad roadlng for tho Judgo theso days as ho pulls out his old files and rumlnaton over what might havo boon. And Just to show that ho was lu earnest about what ho said ho also tacked on to what has been published lu tho foregoing a Uttlo sentonco like this: "And will givo my unqualified fiuppnrt to tho nominee- pf tho Itq plibliciiii pnrfy for tho offlCobf stato treasurer and will da nil I can to nsa'at In tho udvancomont of tho Republican principles and policies Tools for tho Cnrpontcr Tools for tho Machinist Tools for tho Farmer i n i nnd Numerous Othor Trades Skuse Hardware Co. The Store That Appreciate Your Trade ami tho upbuilding ut tho purty lu thu state " "Bovo, JllllROt" And now to thoso who nro slowly accumulating knowledge of tho fact thnt In a sorrowful moment the Judgo had typewritten thnxn memorable Hues, Is as slowly sinking lu the thought relative to his tontntlvo an nouncement of not long since that ho may possibly become an Independ ent candidate against O. 1. Hoff, the successful nominee. How ho can do It after writing that letter Is more than a great many poli ticians around thoso parts have been able to guess. Perhaps ho won't do It. Probably, ns ho hus sober second thought about tho mutter, ho won't do It. Ono of his vory, vory closes, bosom friends wns asked by tho writer the othor day how hn thought Judge ltyan would explain tho letter he wrote bofnro the primarily lu ovent hn bra me an Independent candidate for tho treasurershlp, "Bark I" I'linn," Niijn Friend. "What Irlter?" said tho bosom friend, drawing himself up very promptly!" "Why, that lettor In which ho promised to support the successful Uupuhllcnu nominee," wns tho re sponse. "Did hn wrlto a letter like that?" queried tho bosom friend. "lie sure did, nnd how will ho ex plain it?" still tingled tho writer. "If I wcro he," which Is the Iden tical way tho bosom friend put It, "I would explain It by goln back to tho farm that's tho way I would explain It " And thoso were his Identical words. Immediately after saying thorn, how over, tho bosom friend shucked his hat on his bond and walked out ot Ids office, taking a direction which 'suspiciously tended tnwuril the stato treasurer's sanctuary. And like tho bosom friend, the writer rises to remark also that "If I wero he, I would go back to tho Classified Ad s. hUll HALF.. FOIt 8AI.K 40 ncnis under C. O.

Although, regardless of that fact, It Is understood that petitions al ready havo been framed and ready to circulate to put llyan's namo on tho ballot as an Independent candi date. This also mines from a bosom friend. To announce the names ot these bosom friends would be tho holghth of Ingratitude, but Judge ltyan may guess at titio of them by rumeinberliig who camo rushing Into his office the other day with his hat tilted back ill) his head as though It (thu lint) had been hurriedly put on. But enough for thnt. From rum blings heard It seems to bo n pretty safe bet that tho Judge will go back to tho furm nnyvvny, whether ho be comes an Independent candidate or not. Ho what's the use? Oovornor Wlthyconibo dropped an Interesting bit of Information the other day when hn stated that while he will favor tho continuance of u stato constabulary after the war, ho will also favor Its being cut down to about one-fourth of the present Izp of the military police. The gov ernor bellnves that a state constabu lary can grapple ulth many ques tions, such ns liquor law violations, local rioting and so on, which many times the local officials shy nt, ns ultncss the Masco some time nlucn of tho arrest of the sheriff In Washing ton county for tho Importation of liquor. Tho stato constabulary, Iim believes, would not bo circumscribed and hnmprrcd by distracting local tnllunuccs nnd would bo inclined to do its duty when stubborn roiilllcts of duty and friendship frequently come up to hamper tho local ofllclals. But ho believes that Dm military pn Urn should remain nt lis present strength until after thu war.
