The defeat of Ben Kuutz for Assem
bly last fall by Hon, W. F Bleryhad
the effect of very considerably un
settling the plans and policy of the
Republican party lu little Carbon. It
had beau predicted that Kuutz 'a elec
tion would mean a oontlnuenoy of
snccess that had come to the party
through tke elestlon of Sheriff Josepfl
W ebb aud Clerk of Ceurlg Watklns tne
year before when tke Democratic party
was" at loggerheads, but in this cob
templatlou as in seme others the trite
old saying that "the best laid plans of
man aud mice oft gang aglee" was euce
more beautifully exemplified. Had
Kuutz been elected the Republican
party would have clear sailing next
rail and it ls not unlikely that another
high handed, blustering, blowing cam
paign would have been witnessed by
the Intelligent voters of Carbon county,
notwithstanding that they have long
tired of this style of campaigning. In
the 'Usual presumptlous, grab-all man
ner, the coaventlon that nominated
Kuutz was held in advance of the
Democratic convention. The set back
given last fail, however, will perhaps
dampeu this ardor from a reappearance
'I'hi, .l..r.,,. , r , ., .... ... .. v
In a new county organization. Drels
bach, who had long and faithfullr
served his party as its chairman, felt
constrained to retire with fond hopes
blasted, and lu his place George
Mortimer Davis, of Laasford, whs was
defeated four yeara ago bv Judge
Seldle, for associate judge, was elected
to succeed him. There were a goodly
number of Republicans lu the lower
end who were not much pleased at
this, but they only smiled and bit a
little harder ou their lips to hide their
chargriu. Horace Heyatt was on
tlnued as secretary ot the party organi
zation. But notwithstanding that
dark clouds seem hoverlug near there
are many aspiring patriots willing to
risx tne uncertainties oi political war
for a chance at public plaoo.
Associate Judge beads the list and
the only name that we have thus far
heard lu this connection is that of W.
R. Stroh. of Mauch Chunk. Will la
young In years, yet be ls au adept In
political manipulation as many a one
cau tell. He is about as lively a Re
publican as Carbon county holds with
in her borders, and it is said that he
has shaped more than one county Re
publican ticket for nomination. There
is another name, however, that was
talked of four years ago when George
Davis, ot Lansford, was nominated. K

lu this end of the county there ls only
one candidate, Levi Horn, of Franklin.
zi, win uerememDereu tnat Levi bus
tled for this job once before, three
years ago, when Jim T. Mulhearn, ot
uaumoru, tne uest nearted Democrat
lu the county, put him on the shelf.
Levi has not lost hope, however, ot
handling the cash of Carbon county
for the next three years, and he is said
to be mixing his war nalnt for the
coming contest. Of course Levi may
meet, and lu fact must expect some
opposition. "Pop"McDanlel,of Packer
ton, Is going to try his luck at the
drawing and is said to be already
figuring up the result.

Should Levi fall by the way side, Betzer
will push his claims as a stalwart, aad
of course expects to be rewarded for
past services. Another name men
tioned during the past few days how
ever, is that of 'Squire Moyer, of Towa
