He is a pleasant chap to meet
At county fair or city street,
He'll grip your hand and smile
most sweet
And doff his hat with airs quite
neat.
His slogan is a Congress seat
He hopes T. Helgesen to beat
He 's in the race—head, hands and
feet,
And spurns the word known as
defeat.
Good cheer, and should you win
the chase
And beat Helgesen in the race,

No truer word could well be said.
Dine as his guest and you'll be

Enjoy your rest, a room and bed.

THE OHIO STATE JOURNAL
The people of the United States are daily paying Presi
dent Wilson just about the highest tribute which a people
could pay a President in tlioir quiet satisfaction, uliiversally
observable, that he is in charge of the nation's interests in
these trying times. Men who fought the President on his
tariff policy, his banking policy and even his Mexican policy
are glad now that he is. where he is. Men of all parties and
all shades of political and economic opinion are Wilson men
for the time being, because they have full confidence that he
will keep us out of any entanglements in a needless, wicked
md (lest nn-ti ve. w^r.

IT Wftili BB CONGRESSMAN
FRED BARTHOLOMEW.
The people of this district are
going to send Hon. Fred Bartholo-.
mew to congress this fall. Don't
you forget that. Just because a
democrat never has represented
this state is no sign that the peo
ple have failed to see the folly of
sending a stalwart-progressive to
a democratic congress where he
can do the state no good. A demo
crat aiding the greatest President
in modern times in a democratic
house will do effective work for
North Dakota where a republican
can only hinder, or as is usually
the case, become a nonentity. The
remarkable response of the peo
ple to the candidacy of Mr. Bar
tholomew demonstrates that a
change is coming about and in
that change North Dakota will
have a worthy congressman, and
he will be Bartholomew by name.
—N. D. Democrat, Fargo, August
20, 1914.
WALES PROGRESS
II a clean, free from mud sling
ing campaign will win an office,
it is then certain that the Hon.
Fred Bartholomew, of Grand
Forks, will defeat Helgesen in his
campaign for congressman. Aside
from party lines, clean campaign
ing reflects the temperament of
the candidate, and a mud slinger
in office may be depended upon to
continue to sling dirt. Not that
Mr. Helgesen is a radical mud
slinger nothing said against him,
for he has done some good work,
but in the present race it appears
that the general sentiment is very
much in favor of the little Grand
Forks man who is a democrat and
wants everyone to know it. Many
heretofore republicans will lend
him support simply because of the
fact that his campaign is beyond
Reproach.—October 2, 1914.

Mr. Bartholomew is working earn-,

JLjor Ulitllv in the confidence of the people of the United States. In the estimation of his" character and service, all other
subjects are subordinated to the one great fact that everywhere finds spontaneous expression in the simple phrase: 'He is keeping us
out of war.' As the shock of the war crystallizes the divided sentiment of a nation and makes it a unit for the struggle once begun, so
the reaction for peace in this country has placed every, man and woman back of the President for p^ace. Incidentally the country re
joices that Wilson is President." Oct. 3, 1914.

Mr. Helgesen misrepresents President Wilson and sneers at his invocation of divine aid in his efforts to avoid the horrors of war.
We quote the report of Mr. Helgesen's speech at Grand Forks, Oct. 24, as given by Grand Forks Herald, morning edition, Oct. 25th.
"The President, while preaching 'Prayer Sunday,' is in reality recommending the one main method by which the war can be prolong

gigantic embroilment. Let us not forget that, much as game

inattention To Duty
But besides criticising and sneering at President Wilson's invocation of divine aid to save us from the horrors of war, Mr. Helgesen
has not distressed himself in attending to his duties.
In the 63rd Congress up to October 12,1914, there were 200 calls of which he missed 52, or more than one quarter!'
Up to Sept. 6,1914, there were 97 quorum calls, and of these he was absent 33, or more than one third. (See Congressional Record)

You run a mighty good hotel
