He takes a firm stand j for right and fights for it first, last and all the. time. He was horn in Lehi on Doc. 20, 1852, and having always lived in this county and having studied its interests much, he is just the man who knows what leg iniution we need, and which laws now on the statute look should be ri'lMUklfid to meet the best interests of his constituents.

STORKS. Among the HA or Democratic no lnees there are none who rank higher for their respective tillciul positions then Sheriff Grorge A.

Before he came Into prominence as a public efile r hr did much contrasting for grading railroads, having, operated on contracts in CUb, Idalio, Colorado, Montana and New Uexlco. I n 1883 he held his first office having been appointed deputy marshal of 'Sprlngvllle. It was not a very lacrative poeition, bat the labor of U was right In line with whit be Is doing now as sheriff, and1 judging tnm his record the paet two yeare, It was certainly conducive of good results, and it was here he began to get experience of the right kind fur a man who was fj become the falnre sheriff and chief detcettve of a county so Important as this, the third In state. In 1891 he was elected Justice of the peace and the following year ha was md supervisor, which position be held until he woe el cleJ marshal of Sprlngvllle city In 189.1. He was also elected constable of Sprlngvllle bold precinct tbe seine year and positions until lie was sleeted sheriff in 1895. How well he has filled this office all onr citizens know. He has made the best record of any m in that ever occupied the sheriff's chair In Utah county. Ue lias detected, arrested and brought to justice mere hard criminal than any of his predecessors, aud the fact that he was renominated by his party by acclamation Is a very good sign that he stands hlah in tbe estimation of the people of tbe whole lu-l- couoty. the rubject tf this sketch and the candidate for recorder, enjoys the distinction of being the only woman on lbs Democratic ttejfet.
