Ihiied Millank. l. T., Sejit. 15, lrS-l. J. Q. TiiAYEK, Chairman. A. 11. LEWIS, Sec. O, J. SCUICIE, The political issues iu Roberts coun ty ale reduced to one—the threaten ing county seat contest. The only questions asked an aspirant for ollice is which place he layers Wilmotor Travare Even the smallest ollice Is to be dealt out on this principle. Huberts county people having once been Grant county people and having -ben and foil, the evil of a eounty seat light, might. to be wise iu the matter. THK -'Fargo Daily Republican" has 11 tiieu from the morning held and he roine an evening paper. While this may seem a step backward it is no doubt done inwisdom. Fargo can hard ly afl'ord two morning papers a sup port, and the evening field is fully as istfcpoi tant. it is a question wheth it is more influential, as a city pa ky per, a it reaches a larger number of 4 people in moderate circumstances. There is a healthy tone, anil ati inde pendence about thy "Republican" that is refreshing. THE plan of adjustment as set forth by the commissioners now on the Meld must from its sensibh ness and fairness be satisfactory to all settlers upon the old Sioux Indian lauds. And now ti:at a plan has been settled upon it is to be hoped that matters will be speedily adjusted and the land thrown vpon to settlement again. There is nothing in the way to cause any fur ih£r delay and any further dallying on the prat of the land department would be a causeless injury to this part of the laud which offers such fair homes to the settlor. Men can neither buy nor sell, nor are those who would make valuable citizens willing to lo cate where thiiu-5 are unsettled. The county fair following so close ly on th" heels of the district conven tion last week so fully occupied our lime aw.iv from home, that personal '•eference to either was not made in tur last issue. SufHee it to say that i-oth these events were marked tri umphs for Grant county. In the Ah. •ideen comention, the fruits that vere lost at Watertown two years 'go were honorably regained. Two rong candidates— C'ol. A. 11. Smed y for the council and Frank A. El iiedge for the house—were wominat from this county. They are men ho will see justice done between man '.ad man. between county and county, far as their acts go in the next leg latv.ro. Of the other candidates on in' ticket we hear nothing but words oi praise, and will give their history is soon its the facts come into aur pos essioii. The County Fair. An Excellent Display In all De» purnm-nt*. i Of the county fair held at Milhank last week much praiseworthy could be said had we the space. The display. I though not vast in quantity was ehoiee, in quality and quite extensive in vari- ety. Grain, vegetables and stock in i many instances surpassed the exhibits i of any similar l'air in eastern states. The vegetable exhibits of Chas. Sehu chardt or G. Gunsten are seldom equalled anywhere and conclusively prooves that the adaptability and cap ability of Grant county soil for pro ducing all kinds of grain and veget ables is unsurpassed by any other re gion* Commissioner Young of Vernon had a sample of excellent sorgum of his own production and manufacture that illustrates the possibilities of our soil and climate iu this direction, while Treasurer Evans carried off the palm for line samples of sweet pota toes. So line iu fact were many of the exhibits that they were secured and will be forwarded to the .New Orleans Exposition. The dispi.i_. of domestic and line arts was varied and extensive and the ladies certainly vied with each other in the intricacies of needle work. The floral hall was renderedattiaetive by an endless variety of plants, flow* ers.wreathes i:t design. Though not ureal in number, some very line cattle and sheep were on the ground, and the burse species exhibit ed. as a competent judge remarked,, ranked on a par with the exhibits of Minnesota's State fairs. The races were amusing and frequent, and the "baby-show a treat in itself. A heavy rain on the second day of the fair was rather a discouraging out look to the society, but the line weath er and immense crowd of the third day made all hapoy and rendered the occasion a success point of numb ers. financially, and as a ohpive exhib of our county's products. The otlicera deserve the highest praise for the able, gentlemanly, ami untiring manner in which they attend ed to the interests of the society.
