Under this head the Fargo Argus says:
"The portion who thinks Judge Bennett
"out ot the field" may awaken to their
error shortly. While the Argus has not
advocated the Jud^e as a brother, there is
no use of disguising the fact that he has
made a good representative, and with his
will be hard to beat. Marshal
Raymond no doubt realizes that fact and
is laboring accordingly. Judge Bennett
has warm friends and many of them, and

Judge Barnes will be the formidable

Pettigrew, who is he? Seems as if we
had heard the name, but somehow we can
not, as a people, remember where we have
mfct the gentleman and if the conven
recognizes him we will be very much
surprised. He has done nothing for this
part of the country, or any other, for that
matter, worth mentioning A man who
has no more sense than to do as he did in
relation to the Central Committee, is not
a politician of sufficient judgment or polit
