Judge Steidl of Wheaton, who was
appointed by Gov. Lind to succeed
Calvin S Brown as judge in the Six
teenth District was defeated for elec
tion by Atty. S. A. Flaherty of Mor

Steidl had made an admirable judge,
but simply because he was a populist,
although he ran as an independent,
he was defeated. When Judge Qvale
had been appointed judge by Governor
dough the populists of the Twelfth
District did not wish to bring tbe
beDch into politics by placing a can
didate against him, and similar was
the case of the democrats in the case of

We went to press last week just as
the returns in the vote for the removal
of the county seat came in and had no
tune to Comment on the result. This
county seat fight has been a remark
able one extending as it has over a
period of about twenty years. It has
been a festering sore on the county
nearly all that time, for no sooner was
a vote taken on it, than the matter was
carried into the courts for further air
ing, and so the strife has been kept up
nearly all the time with the accompany
ing drain on many of the financial
interests of the county. Olivia had it
once for nine months but a supreme
court decision sent it back to old

Thankful for Now Freight Rates.
The Great Northern issued yester
day for the information of shippers a
tariff schedule of freight rates on mer
chandise from St. Cloud to points in
Minnesota. While dated November
7, the new tariff is effective November
10. On the title page of the print is
the line, "Issued by order of the Rail
road and Warehouse Commission of
Minnesota," and appended are the
signatures of the freight department
officers of the Great Northern.
The issuance of this pamphlet marks
a new era for St. Cloud as a manufact
uring centre, as a shipping and as a
distributing point Hitherto this city
tn common with Mankato, Fergus
Falls and other towns' of about etfual
size fn the state, have had no freight
tariffs distinctively their own, and the
order oTthe1 commission is therefore
most welcome to fbem. There is a
very general reduction in the tariffs

Everyone wh4 has had anything to do with

Here is a question for Mr Argus or Mr Gazette
to answer How much of a vote would your
county outfit have had if Bryan had earned
the county by 1,139 votes? As it was, every
republican county candidates majority fell
behind that of the national ticket—represent
ative, 270, auditor 46 (although Johnson's total
vote exceeded McKinJey's), treasurer, 101,
register of deeds, 912, sheriff. 478, judge of
probate 171, county attorney, 519 Of course,
we do not claim that the influence of the
TRIBUNF was responsible for all of this differ
ence The popularity of the candidates had
much to do with it.
From every part of the county come assur
ances that the defeat sustained by the reform
forces has not discouraged the faithful but h^s
simply steeled their determination to stand by
their guns A party that cannot survive de
feat is noi lit to win a victory.
Why is it that the older men among the
local republicans hang their heads and are
trying to square tnemselves with certain
defeated candidates? They know what meth
ods were used to carry the county so strongly,
and they fear the reaction which has already
set in The result ot the election locally has
set people thinking, and the result will likely

it We will admit that it probably did not

the reason that local Issues were overshad

overshadowed the dump question But it still
remains a live political issue, and we do not
expect to live very long before the people will
be heard from on the matter. It is all right
for a few smart-aleck politicians who ride in
on a big wave to make light of it, but wait,
hoys, wait. Time will tell who is right.

that its show-up of Mr Smitbson's connection

amended and approved signed the same
jointly with two brother ministers The au
thor idea was that the entire cost of send
ing the letters was to be borne by the minis
ters themselves and that no committee
was to have anything to do with it After
a number of the letters with the three signa
natures attached had been prepared, the
author weakened and none of those joint
letters with three sigoatures were sent out
The two remaining'pastors however wanted
to go on and even authorized the publica
tion of the letter with their signatures in
the special edition of the TRIBUNE Mean
while, tbe matter had reached the ears of
the republican candidates, and one of them
who is a member in one of the churches rep
resented by the two ministers in question,
made an appeal to the pastor not to haye
the letter published The reverend gentle
man called at the THIBUNE office, after the
letter was in type, and requested that the
same be not published in the paper He
however authorized the sending of letters
abroad On the following morning he came
to the office again in an agitated frame of
mind and stated that the county official was
posingasamaityrin regard to the letter
although it did not allude to bim and had
brought such pressure to bear that he (tbe
pastor) would request that the letters not
be sent He was told that a number of the
letters had already been sent by the par
ties having the matter in charge He re
plied that that could not be helped and that
if was alright but that in consideration of
the agony of his friend, the county official'
he desired no more letters sentout His re-
quest was respected, and no more letters
were sent out
On the next day one of the letters was sent
in from the country to one of the repubhean
county candidates, and the poor pastor was at
once set upon and compelled to sign a state
ment not only repudiating his own letter but
repudiating the entire stand made by the anti
saloon people against the politicians who have
been supporting the saloon cause in Wlllmar.
With that statement containing as it did false
accusations against the people's committee,
as a subject, the republican county chairman
added emphasis and printed a large number of
circulars. Sunday morning a dozen rigs left
Wlllmar for all parts of the county and scat
tered the circular containing the ministers
repudiation of the Wlllmar temperance peo
ple stand, in all parts of the county This
thoroughly counteracted the sentiment which
had grown to such threatening proportions
against those who had used the republican
name in fighting the anti-saloon forces at
lllmar, and those officials received the votes
they otherwise would have lost It was a
grand thing for the county ring and they are
no doubt proud of it We would hot have re
ferred to this matter in our columns bad not
the effort been made to make out that the
TRIBUNE people had acted in bad faith in the
matter Defeat has no sting for us, because
we know we championed a just cause but we
do not propose to be robbed of our honor
Unless in the meantime the parties who have
accused the people committee of under
handed work and cast a reflection upon the
motives of the anti-saloon people of Wlllmar,
take steps to publicly set matters right, tbe
