To the Republicans ot Snyder County.
Owing to the bad weather, drifted
rouds and tin attack of tl e "grippe"
myself, I have been unable to get
around to see many Bepublican friends
in the county. I Iioj)e, however, that
should I fall to visit you, you will re
member to vote for me at the Primary
election next Saturday. Why should
Snyder County not have a President
Judge once? Must Union county have
all the offices, all the time ? If the Re
publicans will stand up for the rights
of Snyder county at this time, Snyder
may have the President Judge. If not,
it will never.
Any kindness you may show me will
be highly appreciated.

THE LOO CASES.
Some of the friends of Judge Mc
Clure hnvebeen trying to army the al
gerenes against Mr. A. W. Potter, be
cause be was the attorney of the
Lumber Exchange. We would remind
our friends thai MeClurc did Just as
much against them, and even more
than Potter, he took the case out of
the jury's bands, and compelled them
to render a verdict In favor of the Ex
change, The following i copied from
the record in (he ease :
"By the popbt. We will have to
direct a verdict for the plaintiff' for
Gentlemen of the Jury The ruling
we have just made on the testimony,
has precluded the defendants (the ill
ger s) from entering their defense,
thai is, the defense is practically bu i,Kf I
outokcoubt on a question of law,
and we therefore instruct you to render
a verdict In ftivor of the Plaintiff, lor
the sum of one dollar.
H. M. McCIubb, P. J."

say that if the algerenes have a griev
ance against the Judge or attorney,
that Die case is not the strongest u

from the Philadelphia Press of the 12th
There Is a nio-t interesting contest
in progress for the nomination for
Judge in the Unlon-Suyder District,
Judge McClure, who was elected ten
years ago, but h as not met all the i-
pectation of those who supported him
then, is a candidate for re nomination.
He has opposition in both counties, and
it looks as if he would be beaten in Sny
der county, where A. W. Poller is a
candidate. Tlic Snyder County Bepub-
lican Committee Qxed the primaries for
February 2:t a month earlier than whs
asked for in Judge McClure's interest,
and the friends of Judge McClure com
plain that this does not give him time
to make a canvass among the people.
There are sonic districts in the State
where a Judge who undertook to make
such a canvass would be regarded as
unfit for the bench.
