Opera House Crowded
At Republican Rally
•i, The most enthusiastic gathering of
adherents of the republican candidate
for mayor of Grand Forks—Honest
John Dinnie—that has been held dur
ing the present municipal campaign,
was that of Thursday evening at the
Metropolitan opera house. The attend
ance reached about a thousand, and
included in this very excellent repre
sentation of the voters were quite a
number of ladies. The lower part of
the house was completely filled and
the balcony more than half.
Incident to the opening of the rally,
which was presided over by C. H.
Howard as chairman, the Grand Forks
City Band furnished several very ex
cellent musical numbers.
When the speakers of the evening,
George A. Bangs and John Dinnie,
took their seats upon the rostrum,
the utmost enthusiasm and good will
were manifested.
Colonel Brown, before the first
speaker was introduced, Vnnounced
that the band would render the "Star
Spangled Banner" and suggested that
the audience rise to its feet as a mark
of respect. The suggestion was obeyed
with alacrity.
Chairman Howard, in introducing
George A. Bangs, acknowledged the
honor rested on him and told a story
of his coming to Grand Forks 16
years ago. "The day I struck town"
said he "I started out to look for a
job, and the first man I struck was
John Dinnie but was informed that he
did not have any work for me. He
didn't do anything for me then and he
has not since till tonight, but dur
ing the years Of my residence here I
realized that he was constantly work
ing for the interests of the city and the
taxpayers, and mine as well. I have
watched him, noted his progress and
success in both public and private
life, and I want to say right here that
1 esteem it a great pleasure to be
able to do and say what I can for
him at this time.
"But to the point—you came here
for information and we are here to
give it to you. There never was a
time when we needed more to know
and learn what is right and *what is
the best thing to do to promote and
forward the welfare and interests of
this city. Now gentlemen, I am about
to introduce to you a man who is
well qualified to speak to you on the
issues at stake in this campaign. He
will not talk from heresay—as he has
held the office of city attorney for
this city a number of years. I refer
to Attorney George A. Bangs. I take
great pleasure in introducing him."

A. llantfM' AdrtrcftN.
The speaker settled to business at
once, taking up one at a time, the
several issues of the campaign. The
snbstance of his remarks was as fol
"The importance of the issues of
this campaign, ladies and gentlemen—
for I observe with pleasure that there
are a number of ladies present—is
my only excuse for being here. The
principles involved are far-reaching
and upon a correct solution of those
principles depends in a large measure
the position which this municipality is
to have in the future among the
municipalities of the northwest.
"We are here tonight for the pur
pose of ascertaining (he correct state
of affairs and the truth, and of learn
ing the issues, in order that we may
render a correct verdict next Monday.
"In an honest ambition for power
there is no place for shouting gangism,
fraud, etc. I say that it is not right,
nor honorable, to* spread broadcast
false reports and base insinuations,
such as are now flying about the city,
unless there is positive proof, of which
both you and I are well aware there
is none. We have had a most peculiar
campaign. Sometime ago I received a
letter from the non-partisan candidate
for mayor which was in effect that
we must support the writer, and
promising dire vengeance in case of a
failure so to do. I will not read this
epistle, but suffice it to say that I be
lieve it was the opening gun of the
present fight On the strength of that
missive all kinds of lies, falsehoods and
deceits have been practiced.
"If there is to be a gang and a
machine within this state of North
Dakota—and you republicans ought
to know, as we democrats have nothing
of the sort (applause)—the evidence
at present" being that if there is one
gang^ there are two, why then there
will have to be, but that has no true
place in the present municipal scrap.
"My indignation is hard ja control
when I think of some of thennembers
of his own party, without cause, cast
ing the insinuations and telling the
lies that they do about John Dinnie,
the republican candidate, a man whom
I have known personally for twenty
six years, the very idea of charging
him with being the tool' of the gang!
"He is a man noted for bis absolute
and indomitable independence!
The speaker went on to show numer
ic ous acts of public-spiritedness on the
part of Mr. Dinnie*notably, his fight
against the bill for the creation of a
capitol commission, which bill was
known and referred to all over the
state as a "gang measure.'' The idea
:t conveyed was that if this were a p"n?
measure and John Dinnie Is being
•S, backed by the gang, why did he mane,
the fight on the bill.
"When John Dinnie became aroused
over the capitol commission matter,"
continued Mr. Bangs, "he didn't stand
£$£ round the street corners and gossip,
/JjL but, with others organized in this city
'Vfj and took up the matter. He went to
'id, Bismarck himself. He staid in the
1%^ fight until, finally, the., supreme court
knocked out the bill, declaring it to
be an illegal act"
Mr. Bangs also tarried briefly on the
"8orIey incident/' describing the his
tory of Mr. Sorley's Benedict Arnold
stunt, in leaving Dinnie's support to
work for Duis, simply because Mr.
Dinnie refused to prostitute the citizen
ry to state politics and support the
Winship gang.
"Shnll we hnve
mayor of the
City of Grand Fork* a man who ha*
the time to devote to hl» private
IntereHtM, but not to the IntereNtM
and welfare of the people* or ahull
we hove ow mayor a man who
alwnyn tttand« ready to Ktve hlN bent
time and liralnN to the city** np
John Dinnie fiats done
In the pa*it," were the elarlon word*
of Mr. IlangM.
"This is a matter of absolute im
portance and is vital to the prosperity
of the city. We have had as mayor
for the past two years a man who is
engaged in a private business, which,
to be as successful as it has been, for
he came here not more than six or
eight years ago with nothing and is
reputed to be worth from $50,000 to
$75,000 now, of necessity requires his
entire time and attention. say,
gentlemen, that no man can success
fully do two things at one time. His
oath was to serve ou as citizens, but
this he has failed to do. Neglect has
been disclosed in almost every depart
ment. The records show it. I ask no
man to take my word for it. Visit
the offices of the auditor and treas
urer and learn for yourselves.
"All this hue and cry about the
"gang" and the machine, is being made
to conceal the true state of affairs.
The Duis crowd has practically ad
mitted defeat on every issue that has
been presented, and they know it and
have attempted to inject state politics
in order to mislead and distract atten
tion from the real issues.
"Referring to Mayor Duis' wanton
neglect, the first matter I would call
attention to is the matter of the raise
in the personal property assessment
of Grand Forks by the State Board of
Equalization. Four years ago when
an unjust raise was threatened, at the
request of Mayor Dinnie, City Auditor
Brown journeyed to Bismarck and ex
plained conditions to the members of
the board. As a result there was no
"In August 1905, however, the board
raised the assessment on personal
property in this city 16 per cent, fur
ther burdening the business men and
citizens, and nothing was done by
Mayor Duis to try to avert the raise.
"In the conduct of our filtration
plant is to be found another instance
of gross neglience. You have un
doubtedly read of it in the papers.
The water in the filter was always pure
during the administration of John
Dinnie, but what is the record of his
successor in office. I hold in my hand
a chemical aniflysis of water taken
from the filter about three weeks ago.
The analysis was made by Prof. Bab
cock of the State University and it
shows contamination by organic mat
ter which should not be there were
the water properly filtered. You all
know that the efficiency of a filter de
pends almost entirely on the sand.
Prior to 1905 from eighty to a hundred
carloads of sand were brought into the
city every fall for use in the filter
ing plant during the winter months.
"The real trouble with the filter to
day is that insufficient amount of sand
is being used, and what sand is used
is clogged with filth taken from the
river. According to a statement from
Dr. H. M. Wheeler, printed in The
Herald four years ago, the safe limit
on depth of sand is four feet, but the
record of a month ago shows not to
exceed thirty inches."
"I assert again that there has been
no actual head to this city for the past
two years, but on the other hand too
much experimentation and tomfool
Mr. Bangs then took up the matter
of the expenditures and cost of con
ducting the city's affairs during the
administrations of Dinnie and Duis,
comparing the two and showing the
average cost per year under the lat
ter's administration was many thou
sand dollars greater than under the
former's. The exact figures are given
elsewhere in this issue.
The expense of maintaining the
health department has beenjiractical
ly doubled under the Duis regime
the street department has been more
expensive to the extent of $1,800 per
annum and all other departments
show like increases.
At this juncture a gang of hood
lums, presumably in the employ of the
Duis workers, gathered around the
outside of the opera house and made
a demonstration. Beating tin pans and
shouting seemed to be the main
method of showing disapproval of the
rally in the opera house. The noise
interrupted Mr. Bangs temporarily and
he caustically remarked that he
"guessed Duis was having a meeting
outside. This is a fair samnle of the
methods of campaigning .that have
been waged by him the past' four
The speaker then took up tha matter
of franchises. He cited as a fair ex
ample of the inattention of the present
executive to the welfare of the people,
his utter lack of knowledge of the
fact that by the terms of its contract
with this city, the Tri-State Telegraph
& Telephone Co., is liable for the
payment a two per cent gross earn
ings tax. Reference was also made
to his granting a right of way in per
petuity to the International Harvester
trust for a spur track to be built by
the Great Northern to Its warehouses.
"In this evening's edition of the Plain
dealer, or Evening Press or ,whatever
may be its latest adopted name, an at
tempt wag. made to justify Mr. Duis
in thus swearing away the property of
the citizens- forever and without a
cent's compensation. I think you wiTl
all agree with me that this is no
pauper institution, it can well af
ford to pay for what it gets in fact
did pay $1,500 to the American Buscult
Co., for 75 feet of the right of way
which lay through its property. Any
how, it was not necessary to make
the grant one of perpetuity. A lease
for a stated term of years would not
have been so bad.
"I have told you about the franchise
matter. Is that an issue? 1 have told
you about the filter question. Is that
an issue? I have told you about the
expenditures under the two admin
istrations. Is that an issue?"
Mr. Bangs then discussed at length
the gas question and concluded by
warning his listeners to beware of the
tricks and cries of gangism, machines,
state politics, etc., that would be used
during the next three or four days
for the purpose of diverting the
thoughts of the voters from the real
issues. During his address the speak
er was liberally applauded.
After hearing a selection "Rally
Round the Flag" by the band, Chair
man Howard introduced "our coming
mayor of Grand Forks." The re
mark was a signal for an outbrust
of enthusiasm.
Mr. Dinnie proceeded to state to his
listeners the reasons why he wished
to be mayor of Grand Forks. The
matter of expenditures and the burden
of the taxpayers appealed foremost
to him. "Under my administration,"
said the speaker, the cost of conducting
the city's affairs, as the previous
speaker slated and as the records
will show, was less by $6S a day than
under Mr. Duis' administration. I am
a taxpayer along with the rest of you
and I wish to see the best interests
of people conserved." Mr. Dinnie then
read figures compiled from the records
in the offices of the city auditor and
city treasurer, disproving the reports
published in the Duis organs to the
effect that there had been a deficit of
$25,000 in one year under the Dinnie
"On the other hand," continued Mr.
Dinnie, "during the Duis administra
tion thousands of dollars have been
lost to the city through the lack of
good judgment in the sale of city
bonds. Bonds which the school dis
trict is able to issue at 4 per cent
with a premium, the city has been
disposing of without premium and
with interest at the rate of 4V per
cent. 1 do not charge dishonesty,
simply neglect and lack of care and
good judgment.
**I am. In fuvor of
Right here the speaker administered
a scathing rebuke to John M. Ander
son, the university student who is
stijmping for Duis, and whom Mr.
Dinnie stated did not even have a vote
in this city. "I hate to have him abus
ing Billy Budge and it hurts /.e al
most as much as it does him," was
Mr. Dinnie's closing remark on tMs
"I want to say," continued the
speaker, "that this is the first political
speech I ever made on the platform.
I am highly pleased to note that
ladies as well as gentlemen are pre
sent. It may sound conceited, but I
believe if the women had a vote next
Monday, I would be elected by a
majority of over a thousand. My re
marks my be rough and unpolished but
everyone who knows me, knows that
I mean right and will do right when
put to the test."
"Let's see that Jack Dinnie is elect
ed mayor of this city," were the re
marks of Chairman Howard in, clos
ing the rally.
Mr. Dinnie during his address, whifch
was certainly clear and concise and
sure to win him many votes, was in
terrupted repeatedly by the applause.
That he is popular with the mass of
the people would seem very evident.

Copenhagen.—Through the death of
King Christian IX. of Denmark, Crowa
Prince Frederick has succeeded to tha
throne occupied by his father for 4J
years. On the day following his fa
ther's death he. was proclaimed King
Frederick VIII.
The new Danish ruler is not a younj

his years lightly and is almost as pop

By the wish of his parents he was
brought up with great simplicity and
his earlier education was obtained at
the town grammar school, for not un
til he was ten years old was the diffi
cult question of his father's succession
to the Danish throne finally settled.
It was Frederick's curious fate to see
his younger brother and his own son
become reigning monarchs of Greece
and Norway respectively, while he him
velf was still an heir apparent.

He is noted for his culture and pos

While seldom openly identifying him
self with political questions, he has
taken an active part in all public move

all important debates in the riksdag.
He is chancellor of the Copenhagen
university and head of the Free Ma
sons of Denmark and' is well known as
a promoter of all philanthropic objects.
His interest in the army, of which
he is inspector general, is keen and he
has introduced several reforms which
have improved the lot of private sol
diers, as the result of which he is ex
tremely popular with the troops.
