  Politics are getting lively. Grant County always has a good supply of candidates. We now have two candidates for sheriff; three for county superintendent, and four for assessor. Still others are talked of and may announce themselves before the end of the week. We have not yet sen any "Sap-suckers" yet, but we understand they are out. A sapsucker is a man (or would be called man) the weight of whose influence would not change the course of a caterpillar, but he manages to make some poor needy candidate believe that he can influence so many votes in his favor provided, the said candidate will pay him a handsome little sum, cash in hand, for doing the work. The candidate goes down in his jeans and pulls out the money and goes on his way rejoicing at the prospects of getting more votes. May be the sap-sucker has not had a new suit of clothes since the last campaign, but he is sure to have one now. He cares not who the candidate may be, he is looking for the fellow from whom he can wring the most money. Beware of the sap-sucker, O ye candidates!
