The chairman opened the proceedings
Mr. Cockrill then said: There seems
to be a strong sentiment in favor of en
doreing for mayor Arthur E. Dickerman,
who is a young man that has the inter
ests of the city at heart. I don't believe
we could improve on him. There is
much reluctance to get the mayoralty in
to a hitter fight, especially as Mr. Dicker.
man has all the qualifications for a good
mayor. The town I come from is strong
ly democratic. but at times the democrats
support republican candidates. The re
publicans in turn vote for democrats. In
the same liberal spirit and in order to
divest city offices, in a measure, from
partisan strife. I propose that we endorse
Arthur E. Iickerman for mayor. [Ap

A question was rainede today as to the
eligibility of A. E. Dickerman for mayor
on the ground that in September, 1888,he
lived and proved up on a ranch near the
city. At first it was touh ttoutltthis disqual
fied him, as the law requitr s a residence
in the city for two vears preceding the
election. Fnrther inquiry, however,
showed that in September, 1888, there
was no "city" of Great Falls and that Mr.
Dickerman has been a resident since the
charter was adopted, or since we have
had a city of Great talls. For this rea
son, in the opinion of City Attorney Les
lie and others he is eligible to the office.
Whatever quibble of law may be raised,
it is certain from the point of interest, of
ability, of popularity and of general qual
ification Mr. Dickerman comes clear up
to the mark, and the endorsement he re
ceived from the democratic convention
last evening is one he may well be proud
KIMBALL, SOUTH DAKOTA, GRAPHIC:
While the colums of the Graphic are
open to any and all unobjectionable ad
vertisements, yet it is quite impossible
for us to speak knowingly of the merits
of the various articles of merchandise
advertised. Particularly is this true of
patent medicines. But there are excep
tions occasionally and a noteworthy en
ception is the celebrated Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. This now universally
known medicine, has been advertised in
the Graphic for four or five years. but
not until recently had we any personal
knowledge of its wonderful efficacy,
which has come about through the pre
.ailing influenza and the stubborn cough
that has so often attended it. In the
writers family this medicine has on sev
eral occasions this winter, cured a cough
that baffled any and all otherremediest
and the number of families in Kimball
and vicinity in which this remedy has
been used with like effects attests to its
value as a specific for coughs and colds
of every nature. For sale by Lapeyre
