W:?' rW THE WEATHER PAIR BUT CONTINUED COLD TO DAY AND PR I DAY. Kraabel Made Mistake. Prior to the legislative session and during the first half of the term, the insurgents were grooming Lieutenant Governor Kraabel as their candidate for ..governor against Hanna at the 1914 election. Being second on the ticket, .It was argued that it would be the natural thing to advanje him. Being presiding officer of the senate, he had a. lot of power that could be used to shape his political destinies if •skillfully handled. In addition, he is a Scandinavian, and that is a great asset in North Dakota politics. Despite some dissatisfaction over committee assignments in the senate Lieutenant Governor 'Kraabel had quite easy sailing until the latter part of the session. He had made him self quite a factor in the estimation of the public and was succeeding so well that his -insurgent friends were greatly elated. Then came the, disastrous initiative and referendum bill, in which the (Continued on Page Two.)

The session was called for Thursday of next week by Chairman Tucker. It is announced that among other things a movement will be started to organize for the 1914 campaign and to create public sentiment favorable to the nomination of certain candi dates for state offices. Scramble For Place. There is generally expressed con siderable disappointment over the re sults during the recent legislative ses sion. The insurgent element had majority in both branches of the leg islature. It was fairly well handled in the senate, but in the house this' clement was practically leaderless and accomplished little of what was expected either in legislation or in control, lu fact, the speaker was elected from the ranks of the. stal warts,. despite the fact that the in surgents had a clear majority over salwarts, bull mongers and democrats. The. multiplicity of speakership can didate^ rgehW SffiTW selfish scramble for place is roundly condemned by the leaders, who in sist they were powerless to, control the ambitiphs of their fellows. Governor Making Good. At the elecion last fall many of the insurgents remained loyal to the entire state ticket, which was a com promise between the two factions at the June primaries. A few followed off After Roosevelt on national issues, but were unable to support Sweet, the bull moose candidate for governor. Their support of Governor Hanna is regarded in the main as having been satisfactory. The governor is credit ed by many of his most bitter oppon ents, prior to election, to be making an excellent executive and to be giv ing all factions a square deal. His determination to give North Dakota a business administration is generally commended.
