Mr. Julius Muggley the candidate
for county superintendent of schools

ivir. iiouse is making so
many claims for his perfection of
I- the educational system of this
county, we consider that the records
of his office need a little perfecting.
One of the candidates was unable
to secure a list of school officers from
the superintendent last Saturday.
To us it suggests that his records
were in hard shape since he cannot
furnish such data as was asked for.
Of all others the county superinten
dent should be familiar with every
school official in the county. Sup
pose our other county records were
in tho same state, what would be
thought of our county officials. And
yet Mr. nouse had no difficulty in
mailing those Moulton circulars to
every school official in the county.
The facts on the face of the matter
indicate that Mr. House has no sys
tem of keeping records,—other than
will serve him in retaining the office,
whether the public service rendered
is adequate or not.
Bismarck Tribune The reading

In another place in to-day's pa
per will be found Prof. Muggley's
withdrawal from the field as a can
didate for county school superin
tendent, and the same is done at an
opportune time, in a manly and
candid fashion, in favor of Prof.
Croeker. Mr. Muggley was very
sincere in his desires to gain the su
perintendency. feeling that he
would in various ways benefit him
self, and at the same time give the
couty a first-class management of
its public schools, but things taking
such a turn as rendered the defoat
of Mr. House more than doubtful
and consequently the prpspcct for
reform lessened, Mr, Muggley does
the courageous thing in surrender
ing his personal interests in the
contest to the better feature of the
public «vants, and will be accorded
duo credit therefor. And he now
asks his friends, one and all, to
turn their attention to Prof. Crocker
and give him an election.
THOSE "UNSOLICITED" NAMES.
The Gazette puts itself in an
awkward position, to say tho least,
in preceding Supt. House's "in
dorsement," signed by some 140 men
of the county with a statement that
the thing was "entirely unsolicited
by Mr. House," when every man in
the double column knows that his
name was solicited to tho document
and that the latter was in no sense
or case prepared by any one of them,
but on the contrary printed and sent
them through the mails under a blind
for their signatures, which facts are
not only well known to Mr. Morrill,
but the latter knows that Mr. House
has never denied that he wrote his
own "indorsement," proper, and
was to the trouble of securing the
names and paying all expense in the
premisos. And we submit that The
Gazette docs a foolish and dishonest
thing in thus trying to uphold
tho trickery of a man who of all of

did in all transactions before the
public and rising generation in par
