GET THE VOTERS OUT.
The republican leaders feel abMtl
ttte confidence in defeating Bryan—
It the voters can be gotten out. They
fear more than all things else—the
agMithetic feeling that Strikes voters
at some presidential elections and ren
ders them absolutely indifferent to re
That will be one of the problems
Hi North Dakota, not only on the
presidential but on the state ticket.
No sane man doubts but that there
are more republicans than democrats
la North Dakota. The primary elec
tion law necessitated a bitter contest
ttt June. There were factional differ
ences and personal pledges to such a
high degree that •. large vote was got
ten out. Many voters feel they did
&eir duty then and are displaying
ladifference over^the election this fall.
The leaders have their wOrk cut out
for them in this state. The voters
must be aroused sufficiently to cast a
ballot somewhat near that polled at
tile primary election. If the proper
amount of enthusiasm can be created
the vote will be a large one and every
man on the republican ticket will have
a rousing majority.
The democrats—for the first time in
years, have a campaign fund—and
they are going to spend It in North
Dakota. The presence here of W. J.
Sryan tomorrow is a big stimulus for
the followers of the Nebraskan. His
addresses in this state will Incite
greater effort and the republicans
Hiust work correspondingly hard to
offset this democratic activity.
THE FARMER'S WORK.
The prosperity of the farmer la be
coming amazing. It marks hirh for at
tention. No longer is his prosperity
the theme and interest merely of the
politician and the statistician, it has
seized and held the attention of his
city neighbors. They who used to
laugh at the farmer now envy him.
The old farm has undergone a meta
morphosis. It is no longer a sorry
huddle If buildings on a stretch of
atubborn soil it is a country "place"
of broad, fat acres and buildings, elec
tric lighted from top to bottom. It is
no more a mortgage hole wherein the
toller must sink his money, but a
splendid freehold piling up money in
the farmer's bank.
The farmer, too, has undergone a
Change. He no longer wears chin
whiskers and chews on a Straw. He
has forgotten how to stuff his troueers
Into cowhide bootlegs. He is more
frequently to be seen In ah automobile
It the horse show than following the
plow he deals more in city real es
tate or the stock market than h« doee
in guanos fOr the south meadow lot.
The fact is, the farmer seems to
lead the l#ippiest and most leisuroly
•f lives. Those harried, Overworked
Hity men who visit him In his native
telds are constantly amazed. When
••es the farmer do his work? They

The truth is, most careful observa
tion leads to the conclusion that the
farmer is seldom on the farm. In the
V i i
The answer Is that the new farmer
has loft off being a laborer, and be
come a man of science. He works no
more with his hands, but with his
head. He is seldom in the field*, be
cause his presence Is seldom needed
there. Farming on scientific methods
consists chiefly in preparing the soil
for the seed, and then letting nature
do the rest. Nature and machinery
do more and better work than the old
time farmer could with all his eight
een-hour day and hla eternal round
The result 1s that the farmer is rap
idly becoming the backbone of the
leisure clasB." Out of him may yet
arise a new American aristocracy,
which toils hot, nor yet spins, but
which partakes of the Increase of th«»
earth. It is little wonder that the
leisurely farmer with his fattening
barns and swelling bank account has
become the envy of his hard-working,
toil-driven city neighbors.
ft)G PROHIBITION VOffc
The prohibition party is the tongest
lived of the minor national political
organisations. Since '72 there hav%,
been candidates at each presidential
election. The first got only 6.600
votes. There were great gains fn "84,
and the biggest loss was suffered in
1890. The party has not since at
tracted the voters that it did in the
"80s. This year the cold water people
have a more aggressive nominee. He
is making a strenuous campaign and
the cold water people anticipate that
he will poll a larger vote than at any
time since the organization of the
party. This view seems the logical
one from the wide-spread prohibition
movement that has swept over many
states during the last three years.

Lost Track of Baughter.
Buelah wis one of eight children,
all living, including ner twin sister,
Duela. For upwards of two years Mrs
Cox had been in compete ignorance
of Buelah's whereabouts, until a short
time ago, when Buelah managed to
post a letter, unknown to Mrs. Wright,
to her mother, who was still of the
opinion that they were in Indiana.
According to the story told by Mrs
COx, after securing possession of Bue
lah while at Wabash, Mrs. Wrtght re
moved to LoganspOrt, Ind., where she
opened a restaurant. Later she gave
up the restaurant and for a short
time ran a rooming house, but her
knowledge of this part of her daugh
ter's life is very vague. While Mrs.
Wright was still running the restaur
ant, Mrs. Cox learned of the serious
illness of Buelah and immediately
went to Logansport to see her daugh
ter. Buelah wos better and Mrs.
Weight was all packed up ready to
move, but stated that their future
plans were indefinite. At that time
she refused to allow Buelah to return
to Wabash for a few days' visit with
her mother, but stated that they
would both be there in a short time.
Mrs. Cox never paw Buelah again.
Before leaving home Mrs. Cox ob
tained a large number of affidavits
from various persons who were ac
quainted with Mrs. Wright and her
daughter, and who. in their affidavits,
claim that while Mrs. Wright treated
Buelah with consideration in public,
privately she abused her severely. So
much so, in fact, that at one time, at
least, complaint was made to the au
thorities and Mrs. Wright promised to
do better by the child. It was shortly
after this that the two left Logans
port and came to Lakota.
Her Record in Indiana.
The Tribune, of Logan«port, Ind.
published on Friday morning, Aug. 21,
the following highly interesting ac
count of the life of Mrs. Mary Wright
who Is charged with the death of her
adopted daughter, Buelah Wright, at
the King farm near Derrick over two
weeks ago. The article from The Tri
bune is published simply as a piece
of news and for the purpose of show
ing the standing of Mrs. Wright in
the community where she resided be
fore coming to Lakota. There is much
in the article that is not to her credit
and also some things which ml?ht
possibly require an explanation. The
article reads as follows:
The story In The Tribune Thursday
morning, telling of the alleged mur
der of Buelah Wright, adopted daugh
ter of Mrs. Mary Wright, created in
tense interest In this city and from
present indications Mrs. Wright has
a history which may rival that of Mrs.
Gunness, of LaPorte. The story of
yenterday morning caused speculation
regarding the death of George Welch,
who lived with Mrs. Wright at her
boarding house on Seventh street at
the time he died.
That Mrs. Wright profited by keep
ing Welch to the extent of several
hundred dollars, during hi* life, and
MISS ELSIE HERBERT, WITH A KNIGHT FOR A DAY CO.
S. COX WILL
Lakota, N. D., Aug. 81.—Mrs. Mary
A. Cox, mother of the girl known as
Beulah or "Babe" Wright, has arrived
in Lakota from her home at Wabash,
Ind. Interest in regard to the myster
ious death of Beulah Wright is still
iLB keen as the day it was first rumor
ed that her death was not due to nat
ural causes. In the meantime Mrs.
Wright ^remains in the Ramsey county
jail awaiting her preliminary hearing
on Monday next on the charge of hav
ing killed her adopted daughter.
Mrs. Cox made the long trip from
Indiana, although she could ill afford
the expense, determined to see that
justice is done her daughter. She is
accompanied by a lifelong friend, Mrs.
Elsie Clevenger, and since her arrival
the ladies have been guests at the Ho
tel Grace. Mrs. Cox is heartbroken
over the death of her daughter, and
her story of the child is in marked
contradiction of that told by Mrs.
Wright. Through a stress of unfor
tunate circumstances over which she
had no control, and despite her deep
est protests, the child, Buelah, was
bound out to Mrs. Wright until she
was 16 years of age. Buelah was 16
on her last birthday, April 30, but was
not at 'that time released by Mrs.
Wright. As far as Is known the adopt
ed mother had led the child to believe
that she would have to be 18 years
of age before she could leave Mrs
then got a small life insurance policy
which was made noyable io her after jing any but the genuine.
Jjis death, now seems certain. Wheth- ^selman.
er she hastened his death is a matter
which cannot be determined. The
death report as returned by Dr. B. D.
Bradford said that he thoroughly be
lieved, however, that the man's death,
from softening of the brain, was has
tened by neglect and Improper nour
ishment, while remaining at the home
of Mrs. Wright.
During the man's illness he told
the doctor that Mrs. Wright was pois
oning him. Whether this was true or
hot the doctor was Unable to tell at
the time, but he said that it could
have been possible for the woman to
have administered a "slow poison" In
small doses, which would have Weak
ened the man and hastened his death.
Welch Was Shadowed.
The fact that no matter where Welch
went during his last few months of
life, either Mrs. Wright or the adopt
ed daughter accompanied him, lends
credence to this theory and the fact
that the girl knew too much about the
affairs of the death of Welch may
have been an incentive for the murder.
Welch frequently said, according to
Dr. Bradfleld's statement, that Mrs.
Wright had gotten $1,000 or $1,500
of his money. Dr. Bradfleld said that
he did not think much about the state
ment at the time, but later grew sus
picious. He said whenever Welch
came to his office he said the girl
would follow. Friends of the man
claim that the deceased at one time
was worth $4,000 or $5,000. but he
had nothing at the time of his death.
His hospital bill about a year before
his death and part of the doctor bltt
was paid, according to Dr. Bradfleld,
by money orders being sent him by
his nephew or brother.
Although Mrs. Wright was paid
$100 on an Insurance policy by the
Prudential Life Insurance Co., the wo
man refused to pay the doctor. When
an attempt was made to collect the
money from the insurance company
she retained an attorney and got the
money, still refusing to pay the doc
tor. When suit was threatened she left
Although Dr. Bradfleld said he wis
under the Impression that there were
two insurance policies on the man,
one payable to the woman and one to
the girl, records of but one could be
found at the local Insurance office.
Shortly before the man's death his
brother from Winamac came here and
wanted to. move him to the hospital
At the time, however, the deceased
was unconscious and nearly dead, so
the brother informed him that it was
too late. He never regained conscious
ness and therefore could not tell of
the incidents leading up to his death.
•About a year before his death the
old man suffered from a stroke of
paralysis while at the park. At the
time it was thought that he fell from
a street car, but it was found later
that he had been stricken with par
alysis. He was taken to the hospital
then, but after getting better went to
live with Mrs. Wright.
After going to the h6me of Mrs.
Wright the man began to grow iJveak.
He was hardly ever permitted to get
out of the woman's or girl's sight, it is
claimed, from that time on. No matter
where he would go the girl went with
him. While at the restaurant the old
man worked at many things, Wways
appearing to be busy.
Where Is the Boy?
Mrs. Wright lived in this city prev
ious to the time she kept a restaurant
here. When she was first here she
was a dressmaker. She had a small
boy with her then, about 1 year of age.
This boy was supposed to be her son
but when she returned again he was
not with her. She had the girl then,
having come from Wabash. What be
came of the son is not known.
Child Wrote to Mother.
The girl's mother at Wabash re
ceived a letter from the child several
weeks ago in which she said that she
and her foster mother did not get
along well together. She said that
Mrs. Wright talked about the child's
real mother and they quarreled as a
result. The girl said Mrs. Wright had
forbidden her to write to her real
mother. Mrs. Cox is confident that
fhe girl was murdered for the insur
