There must have been something of a very serious nature connected with (hat "Kim tree at East Grand Forks," referred to in the LKASEB two weeks ago. Staley got John R. Cook to write a lengthy ex planation in the Mail last week. Cook is the man who claimed to hare caught the wmily pure and holy man Staley in a com promising situation behind the said Elm tree, and at the instance of Staley Cook says it was a "bass-wood" tree. But Cook doesn't explain why Staley treated the boys. Does Six. Cook or Mr. Staley pre tend to say that the "truly moral" Staley didn't set np the drinks Don't sneak out of it that way. J^xX rpr Frank B. Wells, oandidate for eoiinty au ditor, is reoogniaed as one of the ablest ac oountants in North Dakota, and is a man of large executive ability, and socially and rpnrniiy is one of God's noblemen. Those best acquainted with him know him to be a conscientious, upright gentleman, against whoee integrity no man can raise a finger, If the people of McLean oounty oonsult their own interests, Mr. Walls will be elect ed their auditor by a very decided majori ty- The Bismarck Settler should be a little bit cautious about its political utterances. J. O. Staley is not the nominee of the straight republicans of the 39th district, nor the nominee of any pther straight party organization. He is the candidate of a bout a dozen mugwumps and political shy sters, who have no "other mission'on earth than to create dissensions in every com munity they live in. Btaley's pretensions to republicanism are about equal to the Dev il's pretensions to Godliness. We again caution the people against list ening to any of the false stories which are being industriously circulated by Mr. Sat terlund's opponents. There is nothing too mean for them to indulge in, and those whom they cannot deceive by lying, they attempt to whip into their Une by threats or promises of a money consideration. Will Mr. Staley explain whether he is a citizen of MaLean ooanty or not. He gave tbeeeouus-enumerntor of Burleigh county hit name as resident of Bismarck this sum- Will he explain it.f J. C. Staley at Minot: "I never asked the people of McLean oounty for anything, and I never intend to." If the people want a change in the ooun ty officials, now is their time to secure it. The attempt to bulldoze the people out of their Oounty commissioners is not work* ing satisfactorily. The mugwumps are go ing to nominate commissioners too. The people of McLean county want a change in their county Officers, and they, will make a clean sweep this fall by elect ing the candidates for the several offices placed in nomination last week. There seems to be but one object in rim tire so-called "people's movement" in this oounty, and that is to eleot C. T. Lange for county auditor. The oounty ticket put up last week, and which is published in the LKADBB, is one of the best and strongest that was ever plaoed before the people of McLean coun ty. Vote it straight. John G. Benson, the candidate for reg ister of deeds, is a ve^r capable young man, and will make an efficient and atten tive officer. The caucuses held Tuesday to elect dele gates to a "people's" convention proved to be considerable of a farce. In some of the precincts there were not enough interest taken in the matter to call out a sufficient number to beoome delegates. John G. Benson, oandidate for register of deeds, is a capable young man, an ex cellent penman, and is in every way worthy the confidence of the- people. Let every voter see that Benson's name is on the ticket. Thos. Fitzgerald, who is at present de puty sheriff, and a candidate for election to the prinoipal office, is an old soldier and a prominent member of the G. A. B. Vote the straight tioket. Guerilla Britton has gone to Minot osten sibly to work in the interest of mugwump Staley, but his friends say he is going to make a deal for the Minot Journal. He will probably try and sell those 19 chances remaining unsold on that gun raffle.: It seems that old Stealy charged Weller township $10, for hauling a teacher's desk from Bismarok—weight of desk 60 lbs. Nioe old man. Prof. Frank B. Wells and John G. Benson were visitors at Washburn yesterday. Prof. Wells is an able accountant and an expert book-keeper, and will make McLean ooun ty a most creditable auditor. The future well-fare of this oounty depends upon his eleotion. Theo. J. Haugeberg, who received the unanimous nomination for treasurer, is one of Washburn's worthy business men, being engaged at present in the mercantile trade. Mr. Haugeberg has had some experience as a county official before he came to Mo Lean county and we believe he will make a good offioer. The voters in the several commissioner districts should not lose sight of the candi dates nominated for the new county board. John E. Allen in the 1st district, John B. Mann in the 2d, and John Bettendorf in the 8d. Vote the straight tioket. Staley has been writing letters to parties in Bismarck with a view to secure their in fluence against John Satterlund, stating that Satterlund is opposed to Pieroe's re election to the U. S. senate. Everybody knows that Staley is against Pierce, but he is willing to promise anything in order to make a vote. C. T. Lange's friends are trying to make it appear to the farmers that the fact of their being able to sell their wheat In Washburn is all owing to Mr. Lange's in flunoe. This is bosh. The Man dan mill oompany will continue to buy wheat here long after Charley Lange leaves the coun ty- Staley cannot earry the vote of his own school township. The people in this ooun ty know the man too well, and his reputa tion is so unsavory that his own neighbors refused to aooept of his services as school clerk even after he offered to serve for nothing.,®!®^ Win. Lacy, nominee for oounty judge, is too well known to the people of McLean to require any extended enoomiums by -the LziPW. He had many years experi ence as justioe of the peace and commis sioner in Ohio before coming west, and since his residence in this county has maintained a high reputation for integrity and square dealing. We shall soon have the pleasure of addressing him as "Judge" Lacy. WW James" Johnson oandidate'for State sen ator, was eleeted clerk of court for Ward county last fall by 811 votes against 96 Votes for John Lynch, a very popular and worthy man. Do you- think he. will not carry Ward eounty this fall? Hi iViiHr Washburn, McLean County, North Dakota, Saturday, October 25, 1890. Local Brickbats. For late telegraphio news read inside. C. T. Lange is sawing wood. Another faint attempt to rain was made this week. Larry Casselman returned from Bis marok Sunday night. If you want anything good to eat or drink, go to Ramsett Bros. The choioest lot of candies, nuts iand oanned goods in the city can be found at T. Fitzgerald's. ^3^?$ For Sale—A pair of good work horses and harnes&^lBc^ii fiotel, Washburn, N. at the, Ten cents a pound paid for choice un salted butter—free from buttermilk—at Ramsett Bros., Washburn, N. D. 11 Veto for Frank B. Wells for oounty audi tor. John Satterlund took Thursday's stage for the east. Larry Casselman, don't tell anymore lies -remember that chickens come home to roost. Judge William Lacy is the strongest man on the ticket nominated last week. So say the people. Julius Caesar Stealy: How much did you pay for that teacher's desk, and two old chairs? In 1884 J. C. Staley was appointed jus tice of the place for McLean oounty, and immediately disgraoed the position. Can any man in this county point to a single straight act of J. C. Btaley's If so the LEADBH will cheerfully publish it. If you want to see a nice lot of new goods call at Ramsett Bros.' store. They have just reoeived their new supply, which is being sold at reduced figures. See their new advertisement. Acoording to John H. McCullough's fig' nres, who took the list of the mortgage in debtedness of this county, there are 869 uncanceled real estate mortgages against McLean county lands. James Johnson takes well with the peo ple of MoLean oounty. He has thrown no dirt, and on every occasion speaks in high terms of his opponent. O. B. Harris, a real estate dealer from St. Paul, arrived in town last Saturday, and spent a few days here looking up some land matters in this vicinity. Turtle-No-Head and John Smith return ed last Sunday from Fargo, where they had been in attendance at the trial of White Elk in the U. S. district court. Maj. J. S. Murphy returned from Fargo Saturday accompanied by Gros Ventre Jack. He informed us that White Elk was convicted of murder and sentenced to 10 years in the penitentiary. Mr. Satterlund gave to the Mandan Boiler Mill company the use of the ground upon which the warehouse is built. The farmers owe the credit of that institution to John Satterlund, not to Mr. Lange. Mr. Nels J. Olson, one of principal lead ers of the peoples party, visited our office yesterday and had a political ohat. Nels expeots to be nominated to day on ''peo ple's" tioket for commissioner. Eve was the only woman who never threatened to go and live with mamma, and Adam was the only man who never tantalized his wife about "the way my mother used to cook." B. L. Baardson, whose nomination for Sheriff was defeated in the convention last week by only two votes, aooepted the re suit pleasantly, like a gentleman, and cheer fully accords his support to his successful opponent, Thos. Fitzgerald. All efforts to induoe him to run on a "people's" tioket are unavailing. We have heard a large number of farm ers' repeatedly complain about the extrav agance of the present oounty administra tion, and express their desire for a change in the oounty officers. Now is the time to make the ohange—and make a clean sweep of it, too. Vote for Frank B. Wells for oounty auditor. C. T. Lange was deputy register of deeds and county clerk for Herman Hanson, and paid Hanson |20 per month for the privi lege of being deputy. Hanson is now working to make Lange oounty auditor. Dont let promises of reward or threats deoeive or frighten you. Vote for Frank B. Wells for oounty auditor. John H. MeCullough, who has oharge of the indebtedness oensus of the United States for the State of North Dakota, was in Washburn this week taking an abstract of the mortgage indebtedness of McLean oounty. Mr. lloOullough is a very plea sent ^gentleman, and was a member of the legislature last winter from Walsh oounty, He made an excellent reoord for a young «•»•»», and we shall expect to hear from him in the near future in a more lucrative and exulted position* 'Tis the first time we ever read this ver sion of the prodigal son. "My friend, what would you have done if you had a son returning home in such a plight?" "I'd have shot the boy and raised the calf," was the prompt reply. James Johnson, republican candidate for state senator from this district started for his home in Minot last Sunday. Mr. John son made a good impression among the people he visited on this side of the dis trict, and we have no fears of his eleotion. C. F. Huston, the flying spirit of the mugwumps, has called a "people's" con vention to be held to day. He says he is going to nominate C. T. Lange for auditor ^hii- ^ay^pU rtaftt. but as the people want a change in the oounty officials, it is not likely that Mr. Lange will poll a very strong vote. Hon. W. H. Winchester, judge of this district, accompanied by his stenographer, R. M. Tuttle, editor of the Mandan Pio neer, arrived in Washburn Wednosday af ternoon. Clerk Brownell called court at the appointed hour, and a number of our citi zen's made application for their second pa pers, which embraced all the business laid before the court. James Johnson carried the organization Of the Ward county legislative convention and elected one delegate, and out of re pect for William Hope had the convention adjourned in ordeif to attend the funeral of Mr. Hope's child. The Bank of Minot took advantage of this act, and used its boodle to buy four of Mr. Johnson's votes, and thus secured three delegates for Reishus. Can Mr. Reishus countenance such rascali tyt The County's indebtedness has increased at the rate of over four thousand dollars a year for the last three years, and there is not a solitary thing to show for what the indebtedness has been incurred. This a mount is in addition to the money collect ed from the farmers in the way of taxes. Can those who are handling the finances of the county explain for what this vast sum of money has been paid outf Rev. T. 8. Reishus visited this side of the j&fitive distrltJt' this week. When he disoovered how small his following was here, and the little influence possessed by the half dozen mugwumps who are his sup porters in this county, he quietly withdrew to a secluded retreat and remained out of sight. Mr. Reishus had the appearance of a greatly disgusted man, and we really be lieve he is 6orry now that he allowed him self to be "worked" by snob a gang of non entities. Herman Hanson says he is going to visit every honest farmer in the county and in duce him to vote against the tioket put up by the regular convention last week. Some two years ago Herman Hanson was elected register of deeds through the Skondinavian vote of the oounty. At the first meeting of the board he was unable to write down the proceedings and had to call another man to do his work. The Swedes say they were disgraced by his election, yet Hanson thinks he can influence the boys this falL There were no lawsuits to come before Judge Winchester on Wednesday. After issuing second papers to a number of citi zens, the Judge said: I think McLean county is to be congratu lated on the condition that she is in, in not being obliged to be to the expense of pay ing for conducting lawsuits. I believe this is the third time I have been here, and I find that you are so peaceable and quiet here, that you have not furnished me with a lawsuit yet. You are to be congratulated not only on that fact, but upon the fact of having so many who are coming forward to be made oitizens of the United States— men who have oomo to this country to stay —to make an honest living here. I think this oounty is to be congratulated on hav ing oitizens who live peaceably and quietly together, without putting their oounty to the expense of conducting expensive law suits Ed. S. Allen and Wm. A. Falconer, two bully boys from Bismarok, were in town Monday on legal business. Mr. Allen is the republican candidate in Burleigh county for clerk of oourt, and being a well-read attorney, makes an excellent office. He has held that position about a year, and his numerous friends throughout the coun ty think he ought to have it a full term, and they propose to elect him by a good majority. He has a good man to run a gainst, but Mr. Price is too heavy for a long-winded race, and will eertainly fall short on the home-stretch. Billy Falconer is an old timer among the boys in Bismarok, and his qualifications for register of deeds, for which office he is a candidate, are un disputed. His opponent, John. H. Rich ards, has held the office some fourteen year, and it is now about time he gave way to some one else. During the last years he has been absent most of the tune, yet he has drawn over $700 as hie ritaref the fees without doing a day's work him self, and the people of Burleigh are en xfoas for a change, and Billy Falconer is their man for the place this fall. HOI FARMERS! The Washburn Flour Mill will start up for the fall work on Tuesday next, Oct. 28. Flour will be exchanged for wheat as usual. JOHN SATTIBLTTHD. Washburn, N. D., Oct. 24,1890. James Larmer of Coal Harbor canie down yesterday, to be molded into a full fledged Yankee by Judge Winchester. Judge Winchester with Stenographer Tuttle crossed the river Thursday morning into Oliver and Mercer counties, where he held terms of oourt Thursday and yester day, and last evening returned to Wash- bnrn- •. The' friei^^i^^ mriSlfru^ gave thom a surprise party last Wednes day evening, which was attended by a large party who passed the time tripping the light fantastic toe. Exchange: There is something peculiar about the atmosphere just before election. The political bosses and office seekers can see an honest granger a distance four quar ter sections. And his solicitude for the welfare of the farmer's family is simply immense. They want to know just how many pumpkins he threshed to the acre and if he has dug his watermelons, and if he is going to have any hayseed to sell. AUCTION'SALE! SATURDAY AFTERNOON, NOV. 1,1890.
