Democratic Candidate for Representative.
Bk' < '
& \ •
William Trenton Creasy, candidate
for the Legislature, was born 111 Cata
wissa Township forty-two years ago,
a son of Nathan and Susanna Creasy.
His ancestors were among the easiest
settlers of eastern Pennsylvania and
New Jersey, as well as of Columbia
county, some of whom had taken an
active part in the Revolutionary war.
Mr. Creasy is a graduate of the
Bloomsburg State Normal School, and
has also a German education. He
taught school at the age of sixteen,
and followed teaching in the winter
and working on the farm during the
summer for a number of years, and
since that time has devoted his atten
tion to farming and fruit growing.
He has filled the most trusted
places in the councils of organizations
formed to promote the interests of
Agriculture. Has served as School
Director and virions other positions
of trust.
He has always taken an active part
in politics, has been committeeman,
delegate to our county and State con
ventions and on several occasions act
ed as a substitute on' The State com
mittee. He served in the last two
sessions of the Legislature with faith
fulness and credit to his county, and
was one of the"two members who was
present at every meeting of this body
at these two sessions. In the session
of 1895 he received words of com
mendation from the newspapers for
the active part he took in passing the
free bridge bill, by which the State is
required to erect bridges across pub
lic streams when destroyed by fire,
water or other casualty. This bill
has already saved Columbia county
over $BO,OOO. At the session of 1897
he was the recognized leader ot the
Democratic party in the House,which
title he won by his ability, honesty,
courage and attention to business and
his courteous treatment to his fellow
members. His advice was frequently
sought on important bills by the lead
ing members of both House and Sen
ate. The records of the House show
that he opposed the infamous electric
light bill and all other monopoly and
jobbery bills. He always took a deter
mined stand in favor of the farmers'
and laboring men's interests, and was
one of the active members in stand-
Democratlc Candidate for Representative, j
t H*
Hon. William Chrisman, one of the
Democratic nominees for member of
Assembly of Columbia County, was
born in Pottsville, Pa., torty-four
years ago, and at an early age remov
ed to Montour county and soon after
to this county. He spent the early
years of his life upon the farm ; and
after the labors of the day were over,
he was to be found poring over his
books determined to secure the best
education he could. He attended
the public school during the winter
months, and began teaching at the
age of seventeen years, graduating
from the Bloomsburg State Normal
School in 1877, and afterwards taking
an extended course in the classics; and
for a number of years taught in the
Bldomsburg public schools.
Mr. Christinan studied law in
ing by the schools and their appropri
ations, and the new method of distri
bution in this State.
' He was spoken of by his friends as
a suitable candidate for Auditor Gen
eral in 1897, and also for Secretary of
Internal Affairs on the present Demo
cratic ticket but declined the honors.
The press throughout the state has
spoken very favorably in behalf of his
past services ; a few of the compli
ments are here given :
The Pittsburg Post, the leading
Democratic paper of western Pa.
said :
"The coutageous and really able
manner in which Representative
Creasy of Columbia county has stood
op against the determined Quay pow
er in the House and fought for re
trenchment and reform has rendered
him a conspicuous figure. He Jias on
more than one occasion forced a re
cognition of the minority by a ma
The Harrisburg Patriot , the lead
ing !>emocratic morning paper of cen
tral Pennsylvania says the following :
"Mr. Creasy has made one of the
most valuable of legislators. He is
honest, capable, fearless. With cour
age and conscience he has steadfastly
fought against vicious legislation and
has won many fights in the capitol
with the evil powers arrayed agamst
him. We shall be glad to have him
back here next year."
The Philadelphia Press, the leading
Republican newspaper of
nia said:
"Representative Creasy is a Dem
ocrat, and as long as Columbia county
must send Democrats to the legislature
it is not likely to find a- more honor
able and intelligent Representative.
He was a leader on his side at the last
session, and did not,like so many oth
er Democrats,yield to the temptations
which through one sort of bribery or
another destroyed the members' useful
ness. Mr. Creasy was an honor to
his party and to his county."
In offering himself for re-election
to ihe Legislature he pledges himselt
to oppose machine rule, trusts,monop
olies and jobberies of all kinds, and
will do all in his power to faithfully
serve his constituents and the best
interests of the whole State.
Bloom sburg and was admitted to the
bar of Columbia County in 1882.
In the same year, was elected Town
Treasurer, and served for three years;
School Director in 1888 and served
as treasurer of the board during said
term. In IS9O he was appointed by
the Court for District Attorney, filling
the unexpired term, elected then for
one term, serving the Commonwea'th
faithfully and declined a re-election.
He was chosen Chairman of the
Democratic County Committee in
1888, this being an acknowledgement
of the interest he had taken
in the party, and the skill and en
ergy he had shown in advocating its
policy, and has since acted in this
capacity five years.
During the last session of the Leg
islature, he pursued the same honest
course, working strenuously for the
best interests of those who elected
him. Although his party was in the
minority, his voice was always heard
in opposition to any methods that
were proposed to conflict with the
prosperity of the people. He was up
on some of the most important com
mittees in the House, thus adding to
the strength of his work. ,
Politically, Mr. Christman has al
ways been a democrat, Descending
from a long line of men famous for
their puolic works as Legislators, Min
isters, and Revolutionary heroes, who
have always been failhtully devoted to
the principles of the democratic party,
he has never faltered in his party alle
giance. Although actively engaged in
the practice of his profession, he has
always been able to find time to res
pond to thj call of his party in all the
important campaigns since 1880 and
has taken an active part.

John Barber died at his home at
Stillwater on Sunday morning, after a
protracted illness. He located at
Stillwater about thirteen years ago,
and has conducted a successful busi

forty-six years of age and leaves a wife
and one daughter to mourn his death.
The Supreme Court has decided
that when a cross is marked in the
circle at the top of the column, and a
cross marked at a name in another
column, the %vhole ballot is vitiated
and will not be counted. The only
way to avoid a mistake is to mark a
cross in the circle and vote the
straight ticket. Democrats who do
not want to lose their votes should
make a note of this.
Boyd Shaffer, a member of the
United States Volunteer Engineet
Corps, arrived home on a twenty day
sick furlough, Tuesday night. At the
expiration of the twenty days he will
make a request to remain at home
forty days longer, a piiviiege allowed
all soldiers from the front. He was
taken sick at Ponce, Porto Rico, and
sent to the Hospital at New York,
and came from there home. During
nis time at the hospital in New York
he had the honor of meeting Miss
Helen Gould. He speaks in the
highest terms of her, and says her
kind treatment to the soldiers will
never be forgotten.
