Another Falsehood Squelched—S. B,
Craig Will Not Withdraw- Sher"
iff's Race Getting Exciting.
Ever since the nominations the
opposition (especially the popu-
lists) have been reiterating and
reiterating the falsehood that S.
B. Craiff, republican candidate
for sheriff, would withdraw from
the race at the last moment; that
lie was a figure-head; that his
own party would slaughter him,
and all such stuff Last Friday
the lie was circulated that he had
withdrawn, and Barker runners
were sent to every part of the
county with the lying report.
Don't bei.ikve a word ov sreu
rki'Orts- Craig is in tuk rack
to stay, and wii.l, not withdraw
i n'dkr any cikcumstancl-.s-
The inroads Mr. Craiy i> nuk-
ing into the ranks ol Smith and
Barker is well indicated by the
desperate efforts the Smith and
Barker strikers are resorting to
to discredit liiin and his candi-
dacy. The fact is, Craig will
bk I'.lkcted if the republican vo-
ters stay by him, together with
those who are opposed lo Smith
or Barker. A vote for either
Smith or Barker is half a vote
for the other. The race is cer-
tainly between Smith and Craig.
Vote for Craig.

Meets and Prepares the Ticket to be
Voted on Nov, 6th.
The county election board eon-
| sistingof D. B. Wynne, democrat;
; J. J. Burke, republican and Frank
' Wise, populist, met oil Tuesday
| and prepared a copy of the tickel
: for the printing. There was no
i dispute exci pt on the arraugnieiit
of the ticket, the republican mem-
ber contending that it should be
headed by the county ticket, fol-
lowed by the Legislative tickets
and township tickets, in the order
named- His contention was based
upon the fact that to head it with
the legislative ticket would be to
place a populist (E- DulTy) first
on the list; and a populist, too,
who had been nominated on the
republican ticket by petition.
He didn't kick upon the populist
i. e. his kick would have been
the same if it had been A. W.
Fisher, the democratic candidate;
but he thought the republican
ticket should be headed by a sure-
enough republican, and one who
had been nominated in a republic-
an convention. Mr. Wynne joined
him in this view, with Mr. Wise
in the negative, and the tickets
are headed by S. B. Craig, Geo.
Smith and L- P. Barker, candi-
dates for sheriff of the republicans
democrats and peoples party, re-
pectively. The legislative ticket
appears after the county ticket
There will be four tickets upon
the ballot, viz: Republican, with
the device of an eagle; Democrat,
with device of a rooster; Peoples
Party, with device of a plow; Ind
Democrat, with device of a ham-
mer. On the last named ticket,
however, there will be but one I
name, that of John Franning,
candidate for representative in j
the 10th district.
