I IIP! --"•t ,iV.v. -1' •, OFFICIAL CITT PAPER mawi It has been frequently whispered, rumored and reported during the last two years or more that there was more or less intimacy between Boss McKenzie and A. C. Townley. The reports have occasionally been pub lished and never denied. Real proof of this combination has come ta light. Ed Patterson, owner of the McKenzie, Northwest and Soo Hotels in Bis marck, a life-long pal and righthand man for Alex McKenzie in North Da kota was elected a member of the Bur leigh County Central Committee by Townley supporters at the primary election and the republican nonpar tisan county convention of that coun ty elected Mr. Pattersori a member of, the State Central Committee, which, is now bending every effort to get the constitutional amendments adopted and to re-elect Governor Frazier. This probably explains why it was pro posed by the Townley forces to leave out of the new constitution the pro vision making it possible to regulate foreign corporations operating in the state. This also explains why most of the legislation aimed at regula tion of the railroadB was killed at the last session of the legislature. This also explain8 why the Nonpartisan Leaders have always opposed the Fed eral Land Bank of St. Paid, the great est farmers' credit movement ever started. Must seem kind of funny to rant about the old gang opposed to Town leyism In the light of the foregoing facts. Speaking of the governorship con test In North Dakota. United States Treasurer John Burin, a democrat who served North Dakota as Its gov ernor for six years, says: "I have actual peron knowledge of the po]it! cal record of your candidate for gov ernor, the Honorable S. J. Doyle. He was a member of the legislative assembly In .1909 and 1911 sessions which made a record for the enact ment of progressive legislation, al] of which received the active support of Mr. Doyle. He Introduced and work ed for the passage of the nonpartisan judiciary, the Initiative and referen dum the resolution for the adaption and approval of the amendment to the constitution of the United States pro viding for an Income tax he support ed vigorously the antl-pasB law the presidential preference primary the resolution amending the constitution of the state for the building of termin al elevators, the tax\ commission, board of control, and many other acts of progressive legislation. He was the friend and champion of all pro gressive legislation and the avowed enemy of everything reactionary. He was at all times the recognized champion of my administration on the floor of the House and his record Wfi PM. FOR fflZIER r* •. M' JOHN BURKE FOR ROTLE is absolutely clean and without blem ish." "During each of my campaigns for governor he defended my administra tion and progressive legislation witii great ability and eloquence upon the stump. When he was a niember of the legislature I relied upon him more than any other man in the leg islature and I know that my confi dence in him wa3 not misplaced. Ho never deceived me and we were in hearty accord in every administrative act. He has a keen, analytical, log ical mind and his experience as a member of the legislature and as farmer and business man, together with his known honesty and sincer ity, will make him a desirable exe cutive." "Knowing Mr. Doyle's record as I do, it was a great surprise to me to read in the Nonpartisan papers before the primaries and since that the re actionaries in the democratic party and republican party were supporting Doyle. If this statement is true that the reactionaries in the two old par ties have elected Mr. Doyle as a can didate, they will be badly fooled if they elect him believing that he will be a reactionary governor. "The farmers of North Dakota have a grievance, but not against the dem ocratic party as a state organization In North Dakota nor against Its can didate for governor."—Paid Political Advertisiig.

Wrong Forever on the throne— Yet that scaffold sways the future, And behind the dim unknown, Standeth God within the shadow, Keeping watch above His own. Count me o'er earth's chosen heroes, —They were souls that stood, alone, While the men they agonized for Hurled the contumelious stone Stood serene, and down the future Saw the golden beam incline To the side of perfect justice, Mastered by their faith divine, By one man'g plain truth to mankind And to God's supreme design. 'Tis as easy to be heroes As to sit the idle slaves Of a legendary virtue Carved upon our fathers' graves, Worshippers of light ancestral Make the present light a crime Waa the Mayflower launched by cow! ards, Steered by men behind their time? Turn those tracks toward Past or Fu ture, That make Plymouth Rock sublime? They were iften of present valor, Stalwart old iconoclasts Unconvinced by ax or gibbet that All virtue was the Past's But we make their truth our false hood, Thinking that hath made us free. Hoarding it in moldy parchments, While our tender splrlts flee To the rude grasp of that great Im pulse Which drove them across the sea. They have rights who dare, maintain them We are traitors to our sires. Smothering to their holy ashes Freedom's new-lit altar-fires Shall we make their creed our jailer? Shall we In our haste to slay, From the tomb8 of the old prophets Steal the funeral lamps away To light np the martyr-fagots Round the prophets of today? New occasions teach new duties Time make8 ancient good uncouth They must upward still, and onward. Who would keep abreast of Truth Lo, before us gleam her camp-flres.

STORING VEGETABLES Each vegetable should be kept un der the conditions best adapted to the keeping it in good condition. Tho first thing to look out for Is bruises, as wherever the skin is broken decay can enter. The vegetables also keep better ifa little immature. Cabbage celery and root crops keep best at low ten-peruturt"" with a fairly moist tem perature and good ventilation. On ions keep best just above freezing in a dry atmosphere. Squashes and pumpkins need a dry atmosphere at about 50 degrees. The root crops will keep best when buried in moist sand or soil in a cool place. Celery when dug, is really transplanted as it should be kept growing when in stor age. Dig it with a good deal of soil on the roots and place closely in moist sand or soil and in a cool cellar.—Ex tension Dlv. N. D. Agr .^College. Farm Information Service N. D. Asjr.
