account of a disinclination to enter a contest for tin empty honor,
and above all on account of the waul of time to make a personal
canvass for the position, I should say thai in the first place I
though! ol being a candidate for State delegate, but finding oth

a candidate lor National Delegate. Ifnilj g 1 republican, my
worthy opponent included, had (old me that he would In a can
didate for National Delegate before 1 annoiin I my candidacy,
he would not have had any opposition Iroill me, because the
position does not warrant any battle.
An opponent has loomed up against me. He is a worthy

willing to ascribe to my competitor the right, ability and in
tention to fill the position with honor to himself am' credit to the
county there area tew things to which I desire to call the voter's
attention before casting his ballot for this all-important position.
Fust, I have never held a public position of anv kind, while
my competitor was elected County Coroner in 1881 and held
the position for three years and he is now holding a very lucra
tive position on the pension board that pays him from Sloio $00
per month for two days' medical examination, A brother of m
