The state campaign began with
charges of rank dishonesty and
incompetence in office against
the republican nominee for gov
ernor, the Hon. Robert C. Dunn.
Little by little democrats and dis
gruntled republicans have aban
doned these charges, absolutely
and repeatedly disproved by the
official records and the testimony
of the state's most honored citi
zens. To such little measure
have they shrunk that John Lind,
the idol of Minnesota democracy
and the man upon whom they de
pended to make Dunn's defeat
certain, can find no flaw in the
great state auditor's record ex
cept that he was "careless" and
thereby let the Duluth & Iron
Range railway get temporary
possession of 43,000 acres of
state school lands. Even at this
Mr. Lind admits that Mr. Dunn
recovered the land the moment
he discovered that it had been
taken. State Auditor Iverson,
however, testifies that Mr. Dunn
had no means of knowing that
the railroad had secured the land
that the land was secured by the
railroad probably through a cleri
cal error in copying Judge Loch
ren's decision conveying certain
lands to the road.
To this little measure have all
the attacks upon Mr. Dunn's rec
ord as state auditor shrunken!
When democracy's foremost
champion admits upon the public
platform that he has nothing up
on which to base a critism of Mr.
Dunn's record, what wonder that
the pendulum of public sentiment
is swinging so strongly in favor
of an emphatic majority for the
head of the republican state
The Countv Campaign.
Wednesday was the last day for
candidates for county office to

have filed while in six cases in

The republican ticket, state and
county, is a strong, conservative
ticket, the men nominated in each
instance being men of recognized
worth. In many cases they have
been repeatedly tried and found
worthy. The ticket deserves the
report of every republican in Bel
trami county and every man who
believes in the principles of the
great republican party should
vote the ticket from top to bot

G. H. French: "The last half
of the real estate taxes which are
payable before Nov. 1 are coming
in very slowly, Many of the
large lumber companies who own
thousands of acres of pine lands
in this county have failed to re
mit as yet and the individual col
lections are also slow. However,
a rush of business at the treasur
er's office may be expected along
toward the end of the month."
Judge Pendergast: "Hunting
in the vicinity of Buena Vista is
not as good as might be expect
ed, and Mr. Snyder and myself
did not get as many birds as we
had intended to. Deer are num

large number of hunters will un
doubtedly make Buena Vista
their headquarters during the
big game season."
Citizen: ''What Bemidji needs
is a number of factories which
ship the goods out and bring the
