have no idea of who the victim will be,

IF the Republican convention had
nominated H. B. Cowled for treasurer,

No matter what rumors are in cir

memember that F. M. Campbell is the
Republican nominee for treasurer of

the field until after 5 p. M. on next
Tuesday. Remember this.
THE Pioneer-Press of last Sunday,
copies the item from the UNION re

to the defunfr Princeton Appeal. Well,
mistakes will sometimes occur in theish

PROFESSOR DENTON, the eminent free
thinker, has just finished delivering a
course of lectures in Minneapolis. He
spoke to large audiences every night.
The P.-P. published condensed re
ports of the lectures, and speaks very
highly of Mr Denton's ability as an
of election, the law says that,
"there shall be printed copies of all
proposed amendments posted up at
every polling pjace in the state on
election day before the polls are op-
ened." There is a penalty attached
for neglect.* Bear tfcisin miFd.
IN another column H.F. Barker an
nounces himself as an independent
candidate for county superintendent of
schools. We were a delegate to the
convention which nominated Mr. Ross,

stand by him, still we have not a word

make a good superintendent.

IT is unnecessary for the UNION to
say a word in favor of the nominees of
the Republican county convention F,
M. Campbell needs no introduction to
the voters of Mille Lacs county, he is
well & favorably known to all of them
as their votes next Tuesday will at
test. Mr. J. A. Ross, the nominee for
county superintendent of schools, is a
well-informed and thoroughly edu
cated man, and will make a first-class
superintendent, though he is eccentric
in some things. The other nominees
won't qualify and so it is useless to
say anything about them.
THE Elk River Star, which is
thusiastic in its support of Mr. Nicker
The People's Convention" which, is in
session at Music Hall thus afternoon, has
nominated J. W. Libby as a candidate for
county treasurer in opposition to Mr. J. Q.
A. Nickerson. He is no douM popular in
River, and well liked sofar as known.
The Star has not a word to say against
him as an individual or as a citizen....
Those who know him do not doubt, that
J. W. Libby would be equally faithful
But even if J. W. Libby should be elect
ed, from our knowledge of the man we are
satisfied that they could no more control
him than they can Mr. Nickerson.
VOTERS of Sherburne county, the
UNIQN does npttpropose to dictate who
you should elect as Co. treasurer, The
Elk R^ver Star would like to make it
appear as though the UNION was in
terfering where it has no business to.
This is a free country, a newspaper
has a perfect right to aid a friend, ev
en if that friend resided in Hong
Kong instead of in an adjoining county,
That right we propose to exercise,
we ask nothing for ourselves but what
we would willingly accord to others,
and whenever the Star sees fit to take
a hand in Mille Lacs county politics,
why, let it pitch in. There are por
tions of Sherburne county more close
ly identified with Princeton than with
Elk River. The Star is a
live paper and is doing its
level hest for Nickerson, and the UNION
will try to counteract the Starys
fluence in this end of the county at any
rate. We have a strong personal
friendship for J. W. Libby, he is as
honest, upright good-hearted fellow
as ever stood in Sherburne county he
is good-humored and courteous with
everybody, rich or poor, it makes no
difference, he treats them all alike he
has got a mind of his own and cannot
be controled by any clique or combin
ation his character is without a blem
there is no man, woman or child
who can truthfully say that ever J.
W. Libby done them a mean act he
is highly esteemed by all who know
him^-and wherever he is personally
acquainted there he will get his heavi
est vote he can furnish a $100,000
bono! if necessary. Such a man is J.
W. Libby, and those who know the
man will bear us out in our assertions.
Voters of Sherburne is pot such a man
worthy of your suffrage?

GIVE US HEN.
God give us men! a time like this demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and
Men whom the lust of office does not kill
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy
Men who possess opinions and a will:
Men who have honor men who will not
Men who can stand before a demagozue,

And where there's valor to be won
The Irish need apply!
Wherever noble thoughts are nurst and
noble words are said
Wherever patient faith endures, where

Wherever honest industry to win its goal
Wherever manly toil prevails

Wherever woman's love is pure as is un

Our Defaulting Treasurer.
Well, our missing treasurer has not put
in an appearance yet, and furthermore, he
will not. The letter received by C. H.
Rines, purporting to have been written at
Staples' dictation by a nurse in a Chicago
hospital was a bogus letter for Mr. King
Staples, of Monticello, has returned from
Chicago, he visited all the hospitals and
hotels, andemployed detectives to aid him
in the search, but could find no trace of
his runaway brother. One thing is cer
tain, Mille Lacs county is out a treasurer,
and what is worse, out several thousand
dollars. There are some folks who know
more about Staples' whereaboutsthan thev
care to tell.
CAHD.I hereby announce myself as a
candidate for the office of School Super
intendent. I am too good to work, and
must have it. You thoughtlessly refused
to make me county treasurer, and I would
like to know how I am to live. I will
adopt any principles the dear people
