Blompot was in his uncle Tjurk'a store »t German Valley. Another uncle is Cirksena. Cirksona had a note signed hy Dult- man. Tho two vent to Bancroft to sell the note, but becnuso it ran a year tho banks wanted a heavy discount. They told them that a six-months' note was more saleable. A little later the two came to the Farmers & Traders bank with a six-months' note and got $140. It turned out later that they sold tho year note to tho state bank. Tho six- monlhB 1 note was a forgery. Sheriff Samson trucked Cirksena to California and he pleaded guilty, stating, however, that Blompot did tho writing. He was sentenced to the penitentiary ' for two years by Judge Thomas at the recent term of court. Monday Sheriff Samson brought Blompot from Now York City, where he had secured a situation as booU keeper in a wholesale house. His wife had just como from Germany to meet him Blompot denied everything, saying that he made out a six-months note and told Cirksena to go to Dullman and get him to sign it. Cirksena came back with It signed. Blompot is a bright appearing young man, a lino penman, and had been promoted in the house he was'working for. He will bo tried at the coming term of court.

It is probably not fair to assume that all the stay-at-home vote has been republican, which shows a still further net democratic gain. It is a fact however, that the democratic vote was at the polls more largely than the repub- The republican plurality over the democrats since 1890 has been as follows: In 1890, it was 162; in 1891, 112; in 1892, 288;'inl893; 385; in 1894,905; In 1895 690; In 1896, 1,069; in 1897, 266.
