The recon's show t hat forty per cent
of Judge McClure's cases taken to the
higher courts have tiecn decided wrong
by him. Just think of it ! Two out of
five! No Judge in Pennsylvania ever
had such a record. If your doctor
would kill forty per cent, of your fum
ily two out of live, would you not
change dK-tors at once?

The nioxi conclusive evidence that the jfaw Intended to deceive lies it)
the fact that it fails tondd up the figures that will tell the (ruth. In that 1
it would show that McClure was not an economical judge, so our oonioinpoT-
ary failed to add up the Cost and average it for each case tried.
The above figures show that the 78 cases tried during MoClure's si years
eosl almost as nine 1 1 as the 108 eases tried during the corresponding 0 years of
Bucher's irt. If the reader w ill take his pcm ii and add up the columns,
he w ill Hud thai 108 ease- tried ler Bucher cost $20, 120.20 and thai 71) ease,
tried under McClure cost 23,001.32.
Average coal per ease under McClure $324.18
Average cost per ease under Bucher 241,04
A emge cost of each of Met lure's eases over average eosl of each
of Bucher's cases
The lifs 1 whoop going up from til
more jK-r case to try a small numlK'rn
cases, We will grant that. But lei u
11 eosl of $23,001.32 und Bucher, 108 case
Me' .'lure had the chance to t ry 86 eases more so us to he on 11 level w 11 h Buch
er, '.mid he try 1 hose 36 cases for $2666, which is all he has lefl to do it ith
in comparison with Bucher's record. Kor the purpose of closing up this de
ceptive howl, w e will grant thai McClure be given the chance to tiy 36 more
eases alld lei Us see t he eis :
.'."leases at Bucher's average, ($241.04) t 8457.30
s'.'i ijases at Mi l lure's average ($324.13)
The reader w ill readily see thai Mc( 'lure would
$2505. If Mei lure hud to try ''1 more eases, even at Bucher's average, it
would cost the county more than Buclicr's, and if it were figured al Mc
Cl 11 re's own average eosl per case, is w ould make McClurc's pis eases cos;
$8770.56 more than 108 cases of Bucher's. We will drop the latter ligures,
however, so the McClure organs will have no occasion to say the statement is
unfair; but even taking the 35 eases al Bucher's average, McClure's expense
to try the same number of cases i- $5903.00 ra than Bucher's. I foes thai
prove that McClure was an ECONOMICAL J EDGE ?
n addition the McClure organs claim that McCluri saves DOcach term
of court, or a total of $3840 in ten years, by 110I calling 1 he pel it jury until Tin s
day. How can this be? Why docs he not have a better showing'.' lleniusl
have saved at the spigot ami left it leak nl the bung.

to take up his home nl Selinsgrovc. They told him I hey had a very comfort"

that Sellnsgrove was in the middle of the District, and thai the committee
and the citizens of the ( louuty generally would do all in their power to make

NOMINATE A. w. POTTER, aSnyderoounty man.
JUDGE McCLURG NOT ONE Ol OCR PEOPLE.
Although Judge McClure has resided in this Judicial District nearly ten
years, yet he has not become Identified with any of the interests of our people.
Although he has drawn 150,000 of salary, and is a rich man, he has never
bought any real estate, or paid any tnxes on real estate, in the District. He
has shown no disposition or intention to hecome a permanent citizen of
the District. He lives in a rented house. He can easily pick up his accumula
tions and go away. He is here and among us only to hold offine. He has
recently declared to a prominent Selinsgrovc gentleman that When he would
come out of office, he would not practice law in the District, but ho would
locate in Scrauton.
On the other hand, A. W. Potter has resided among us for 20 years. All
he has in the world is located within our own county. He is a heavy tax
payer, and bears his share of the burden of ail puoiic expenses along with tho
rest of us. He is Identiaed with all our interests. Nominate A. W. Potter.
