Bogart is back from Idaho, says that's, a good state, but that he has gone into the stock business in southern cen tral Oregon. Sidney DeLong of Wahpeton, and Miss Retta Barndt of Aber deen, were married at latter place, Monday evening. Mr. and Mrs. DeLong wili make Wahpeton their home. The funeral of an old gen tleman named Kultzer, who resided with a son about half way between Wahpeton and l^airmount, occurred from St. John's church, Tuesday. Chris Christianson and Miss j&.nna Lawrence were married Tufesday, at the home of the bride's parents. The bride is one of Walipeton's popular young ladies and a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Math Lawrence, residing just north of the city. The groom is in the employ of G. Richter & Sons, machinists, this city. L. J. Bleeker and Miss Pearl Patterson were married at the home of the bride's parents last evening, by Rev. Dr. Knox. The bride is the second daugh ter of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Pat terson, this city, and has spent the past year or more in the South, a portion of the time at South Boston, Virginia, having ^returned two or three weeks ago. The groom is one of the efficient clerks in the State Bank at Hankinson, this coun tt. and the happy young couple will make their home at that place. District court in session in Breckenridge this week. Quo Vadis at the opera house, to-morrow evening. We think the frost did some damage in this county, and there now seems to be the most threathening drouth this sec tion of country has ever seen. Men from the western part of this county,on Silver Prairie and noth of there, say that the crops promise good, there hav ing been frequent showers out there. It is reported that frost did great damage on the lands be tween Breckenridge and Fer gus Falls, Minnesota. Some farmers over there are plowing and seeding to flax. Chief of Police Anderson ran in to Minneapolis, Monday night, to see his brother who is there ill in a hospital. The chief thinks his brother is not as well as he was when he went- down. But the physi cians said they had hopes of his recovery. He has spinal difficulty. Clark Comstock, who has been suffering considerably of late with the cancer on his temple, fell ill on the farm and came in home a week or ten days ago. Is up now, how ever, and hopes that he may get his present crop matured and then try and get away for treatment. The moment a farmer real izes that his crop is a failure, he should hustle in millet, bar lej*, oats or corn on the ground for fodder. If there is no hay crop, this is almost imperative. And men ought to watch con ditions closely to try for a crop to feed the stock. In sections where there are both grain and hay crops promising fairly well, let well enough alone. Where failure is promised surely the second crop ought to be started. It will rain some time. The Democratic convention reported in another place was very largely attended by en thusiastic citizens and tax payers from every part of the county. It was hardly expected that so large a representation would be able to get away from 'their work at this time to a mere delegate convention. But it shows that Hannaism in politics is to be challenged at the polls this year. Hannaism means the working of a public trust for what there is in it for private gain. This crops out in the tremendous trust organi zations under the McKinley administration, where every thing a farmer has to sell is cheap and everj'thing he has', to buy has gone up in price. The great robberies in the civil con duct of Cuban affairs, and the attempted theft of Cuba and the Philippines themselves, contrary to the Declaration of Independence and the consti tution itself. Cuba is entitled to her freedom at the earliest possible moment. And the Philippines deserve assurances that as soon as Luzon and the balance of the islands are able to stand alone, the American flag will be pulled out of there, unless those people ask that it stay. These questions" are fraught with great concern to these United States, and the people are becoming interested and will vote on the matter this fall, and we believe they will vote for freedom, not coer cion, the constitution and not mere administrative power. f*~ ••yr '.' ,, R. C. Wyvell has again leased his hall to Company I, as an armory. Aspinwall brothers have been outing at the lakes for the past week and report a most enjoyable time. Geo. W. Robinson and wife of Kent, Minn., were in Wah peton looking after some busi ness matters, Monday. The lawn social last evening at the homes of Mr. and Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Eckes, was largely attended, and of course everybody had a good time. The St. Mary's church people accompanied by a large Wah peton delegation, picniced at the Pitkin farm, south of Breckenridge, Monday. All report a good time. Miss Ida Ponath, last week received a new View Camera 14x17 inches, the largest one in the two cities, and is now pre pared to take all kinds of photographic vi s. Miss Ponath does splendid work and is deserving of the large patron age she receives. The Minneapolis Threshing Machine Company's special passed through Wahpeton Wednesday, and quite a crowd was at the depot to witness the spectacle. appointed on account of the news boys band not being with them as reported. WAHPETON, RICHLAND CO., NORTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY, JUNE 7, 1900. The picnic at Frank Dole- shaj^s, Sunday, given under the auspices of the Western Bohemian Fraternal Associa tion, was.ver3T largely attended, and all report a jolly good time. It is thought the Duluth and West Superior excursion, 15th and 17th instants, will" be largely attended from Wahpe ton and Breckenridge. We be lieve the Wahpeton band will accompany the excursionists. The Wahpeton Maroon Band left Wednesday morning for the Fire Festival at Fargo. The boj's were the recipients of new suits, and no doubt they will be one of the many at tractions at the celebration. Jesse French went along as drum major. ,, .i*i, West hnd—Daniel .Stack, YV. F. All were dis-, The ball game, Suuday, be tween Wahpeton Brecken ridge and Clitheral, closed 15 to 6 in favor of the home team. The visitors were very pleasant young men and won the' admiration of every person with the cheerfulness with which they accepted defeat,and said they were not much in practice, but came over for a! little outing and a good time. We met on the street an old time reader of The Times from Grafton, this county,yesterday, and he said he wanted The Times to say that every demo crat and several republicans, that he knew of in Grafton, want Dr. Moody foi sheriff. lie said the doctor would get a very heavy vote out there if nominated and that he wanted The Times to say so. The graduating exercises at the opera house, Tuesday even ing, were witnessed by a large number of people, every seat in the house being occupied, and vacant room occupied by chairs. The class was a credit to the high school, and shows that the work of Professor Kil patrick was lacking in no way. A feature worthy of special mention were the splendid musical selections by Prof. S. Braun's Orchestra. *r Tji»* i: P- jjv „v« 4 $b DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION. A Large, Representative and En thusiastic Convention.

We real'lirm our allegiance to the principles and doctrines of the democratic party, and we believe that the general trend of its teach ings lias been such that the word democracy has ever been and is now synonymous with liberty and true Americanism.

The wonderful religious drama (Juo Vadis will be pro duced at the opera house, Fri- Sanford Dodge and a large and talented company. Nothing iu the dramatic world has made such an impression as this modern play which follows closely the great novel of the same name by Henry Sienkie vvicz. One of the principal scenes of the play shows the conversion of a Pagan soldier, Vinicius, to Christianity. The drama is replete with dramatic situations and exciting inci dents. and has proved the greatest success in the history of the theatrical world.
