It is the duty of all good citizens to
vote at the primary election to be
held throughout the state tomorrow.
As republicans, for whom shall we
The Tribune asks this because this
paper believes in republican policies
and republican candidates. There are
two factions in the republican party
at the present time—insurgents and
stalwarts. There is this difference
between the two factions: As a rule
and essentially under the present is
sues, the insurgent is against the
national administration against
President Taft, whom Roosevelt chose
as the best possible type of American
and broad-minded statesman to suc
ceed himself as president, and the
records show that the insurgent is a
consort of the democrat,—in critical
times when administration measures
have been up in congress, to redeem
the pledges of the republican party
and its platform, the insurgents lave
lined up as a rule with our friend
"the enemy."
It was once said of horse thieves
that all democrats were not horse
thieves, but all horse thieves -were
democrats. It may be said of insur
gents that all are not bad republicans,
but all bad republicans are insurgents.
There is much involved in the pri
mary election, because the successful
candidate becomes the standard-bear
er of the party at the November elec
tion. This is a republican state, and
whoever is nominated at the prim
ary ought to be able to command the
full party vote next fall. We should
be particular about our legislative
ticket and about all the other candi
dates. The voter will be wise 11 he
looks beyond the stereotyped phrases
of the circular letter that just now
burdens the malls.
What does the candidate stand for?
He will tell the voter in the circular
letter, but the wise elector will look
further. He will ascertain what his
record has been in the past. Has the
candidate been true to his trust in
public office when he has had the
opportunity? Has he been for law
enforcement, good government, and
the square deal, or has he been the
tool of some man or interest, inimical
to the interests of the taxpayer?
The Bismarck Tribune reaches 87
per cent of the farmers of Burleigh
county. The farmer is the backbone
of this and every other agricultural
community. We believe our readers
will agree that the Tribune has been
a clean, enterprising paper, outspoken
in its advocacy of decency and of law
enforcement. Thus the Tribune is not
liked by blind piggers and blind pig
protectors. That is one reason why
the county board did not choose the
Tribune as one of the official news
papers of the county—because the
Tribune doesn't bow to the coterie
who constitute the county ring at the
court house.
The Tribune is not attempting to
name a slate for the republicans of
this county. Our readers are intelli
gent citizens. They will be guided by
their own good judgment. That we
have decided views on political mat
ters generally and radical views as to
the fitness of some of the candidates
may be gathered by all who have
read these columns during the cam
President Taft has said in no un
certain terms that Senator McCumbef
and Representative Hanna have aid
ed the administration and been true
to the administration measures in
congress, and he would be pleased to
see these men endorsed and retained
in congress. The Tribune believes
the state will be honored if the re
publicans will gratify the wishes of
the administration in this respect.
For many of the other offices there
are numerous candidates before the
primaries, and except that, all things
(being equal, the western part of the
state should be considered in the
make-up of the ticket, there is not
much choice between some of the
Let us bear in mind that, after all,
we have a common enemy to light
this fall, and it is best not to carry
our prejudices beyond today's prim
aries, that we may present a solid
and harmonious front in November.
The Tribune) has not had so much
to say in this campaign of men as it
has said of measures and the things,
political the different factions of the
republican party 3tand for. Repub
licanism in this state is divided into
jtwo classes—those who have support
ed republican policies and the repub
lican administration, who have stood
for party action in party matters and
the enactment of those reforms that
are wise and necessary from within
the party, without unnatural and un
holy alliances with the democrats—
those are the stalwart republicans.
Then there is an element of the
republican party that has followed off
a few leaders who are ambitious for
office, who have been stalwarts and
insurgents and populists and anything
by which they might get into office,
who have joined in state politics with
the democrats and elected a democrat
ic governor twice, who have been
about the state attacking the presi
dent and the republican party or
ganization generally, and who ask
election at the hands of republican
voters, that they may gratify personal
ambitions and desires, and wage a
further warfare upon the republican
party from within—and those are in
Insurgency has not gotten much
comfort out of election returns or
party conventions recently. In Wis
consin and South Dakota and Minne
sota and Iowa, the voters have re
buked at the polls those ambitious
leaders who have been fighting the
president and the party. In North
Dakota, we believe, at the election
today, the voters will rebuke those
politicians who have been willing to
destroy the republican party if there
by they could get into office.
This is not a time for the elevation
to office of party wreckers and party
destroyers. The insurgents in this
state have ignored the state primary
law, for a select committee of twenty
one nominated their ticket in the sole
interest of Marshall and Gronna, can
didates for the senate.
The leaders of the insurgent move
ment in this state are men who have
grown old and gray in the Business
of office holding at the hands of the
republican party and the republican
There is not a man on the insurgent
ticket in the state who ever discov
ered so much as a barnacle on the
ship of state, when he was riding in
it as an office holder.
Mr. Marshall rode into congress
over the defeat of Burleigh F. Spald
ing. He tried to ride in again by the
indorsement of an aleged insurgent
convention, and the defeat of M. N.
Johnson. He has been a persistent
candidate for the senate for so long
that his point of view is jaundiced,
and he now comes to the froat as an
"insurgent"—and the leader of the
'reform" movement in this state. At
the Jamestown convention Mr. Mar
shall was a stalwart, because there
was a congressional nomination in it
for him. On every occasion in public
life Mr. Marshall has been an or
ganization republican, when there
was an office in sight. As soon a3 his
ambition rose higher than his cap
acity, he became an insurgent, and
has continued to be one and will con
tinue to be one until the bee of his
ambition stops buzzing, which prom
ises to be at an indefinite time in the
What is true of Mr. Marshall is true
of Mr. Gronna. Two years ago he
was a stalwart, fighting hard for the
republican organization. He was an
other who profited by the second de
feat of B. P. Spalding. His ambition
for the senate has been responsible
for his insurgency. The voters of
the state have not forgotten the po
litical vagaries of Mr. Gronna and
Mr. Marshall.
Mr. McCumber has been a consis
tent republican, and is a creditable
senator. His service is of value to
the state. He is not a trimmer, a
trader or a turn coat. He does not
attack the republican party that has
honored him, because it refuses to
honor him beyond his capacity or
ability. He deserves well of the re
publican voters of this state and he
ought to be renominated and elected.
Judge Engerud is a well known
lawyer, an old time citizen of the
state, and will make a creditable mem
ber of the senate.
Congressman Hanna has been with
out exception one of the best con
gressmen North Dakota has ever h«ui.
He will be renominated and elected,
we believe, by a large majority.
The stalwart republican state can
didates are men who are well quali
fied, loyal to republican principles,
and deserve well of republican vot
ers. They are not trimming and trad
ing, not making alliances with dertio
crats, not out asking for nomin.it ions
and threatening to knife the repub
lican ticket if they are not nominated.
The state of North Dakota is re
publican. Its candidates should be
The insurgents in this campaign
have already through their leaders de
clared that if the stalwart ticket is
nominated, insurgents will vote the
democratic ticket.
If it is necessary to get a proper
alignment of candidates, to rehabili
tate the republican party, and to get
these pseudo-republicans in the party
to which they belong, to let them go
over to the democratic party, now is
as good a time as any.
It is time that democrats masquer
ading as republicans for the sake of
the offices they may get, were shown
in their true colors.
There are enough republicans in
this state who are loyal to their party
and its principles to nominate and
elect a ticket.
The Tribune urges the support of
loyal republicans—men who are not
veneered by every political wind that
promises them an office.
It is unfortunate that it was neces
sary to change the voting precincts
in the city for the primary election
from the well defined and well known
voting places for other elections. The
change is necessary on account of
the election, or rather nomination, of
county commissioners. The county
commissioner districts divide the city
in 3uch manner that the regular vot
ing precincts cannot be used because
part of two commissioner precincts
would be in the regular city precinct.
There should not only be a redistrict
ing of the county, but there should be
five instead of three county comaais
sioners. The northeastern and east
ern parts of the county, now well
peopled, should have representation
on the county board.
It may seem like a stereotyped ex
pression, but it is right just the same
—let us have a square election and
the absence as far as possible of un
seemly proceedings and illegal vot
ing. The last few elections in Bis
marck have been characterized by a
high regard for the rights of good
citizenship and the city has obtained
a good name'thaTmeans much for the
community. "We cannot afford, for
the success of any candidate, to
cheapen and belittle ourselves in the
battle of ballots today.
The Tribune is quite sure that
there will be several surprises in the
election in Burleigh county today.
Candidates reckoned strong will prove
weak, and the court house will see
several new faces as a result of the
primaries of 1910. There is a large,
new element in Burleigh county poli
tics today and it is to be reckoned
