Senator Moses seems to have yielded
to & propensity for making- extreme
statements in charging the use of
steam roller methods by the Repub
lican national committee in passing
on the credentials of persons claim
ing seats as delegates in next week's
convention. The charges made by
Mr. Moses were made on his own re
sponsibility, and they have beenVre
pudlated by several of the most active
and prominent supporters of General
Wood, whom Mr. Moses also has sup
ported. If such
methods as he
charges had been used it 1b not likely
that other men, at least equally en
thusiastic with himself in support of
General "Wood, would fail to call at
tention to them, and to express resent
ment. that such methods had been

Controversy has raged are from the
southern states where the* Republi

has alWays been prolific in the matter
of contests at Republican national
conventions, and it is quite natural
ithat It should be so. In states as
.overwhelmingly Democratic as some
of the southern states are-the profes
sional Republican is quite strongly
in evWence. There are in those states,
of coarse, many who are Republicans
because of convictions on matters of
public potlcy, but where a party is
represented by only a small minority
there is apt to be a large proportion
of those who affiliate themselves with
ft solely for what they can gfet out
of it. And men of this type are not
apt to be scrupulous as to the methods
which they use to obtain what they
desire. Shady methods at precinct
primaries and local conventions are to

respect have usually been well ful
Senator Moses charges that some
yf the improper acts of which he
complains were performed while
Chairman Hays was "conveniently
absent." Stated in that form Buich an
expression amounts to a charge that
tbc national chairman was partici
pant in the use of these improper
methods, and had withdrawn.- know
in what was proposed, and for the
purpose of facilitating It without In
volving himself directly in it.'N^T'ha^
Is a charge which no man has a rights
even to hint at unless he is prepared
to^prove it. All the facts of which
the public is cognisant concerning
Mr. Hays make such charges incredi

forwardness a-nd fair dealing, and Mr.
Moses takes an unwarrantable lib

he has made unless he has proofs dn
which to base them.
It is not usual for a president of
the United States to censure tlpe work
of an adjourning congressional ses
sion as President Wilson has Just done
in his letter to the Railway brother
hood chiefs who wired him their pro
test against adjournment before sev
eral problems in which they are spe
cially interested were disposed of.
The incident Is unusual, but President
Wilson Is an unusual man, and the
conditions are out of the ordinary
Hence It-is not*at all surprising to
read the statement which the presi
dent has just made public.
Under other circumstances one
might read*fhe criticism with a rather
large measure of sympathy. Con

houses of eongresa are'controlled by
Kepab!leans, the Republican party
must be prepared to shoulder its
share of' responsibility for -whatever
commissions or omissions there have
been. Some of the legislation falls
"hort of what oonld Jgive been desired,
and on other matters there has been
sad neglect and waste of time.
But if Mr. Wilson were so construct

Of the candidates who have filed for

Colonel Frank White, of Valjey City.
In a life in which there has been the
I full share of public labor Colonel
White has acquitted himself honor
ably in the service of his state and na
tion. and has well earned th«y com
plete confidence which men should
have in the men whom they send to
represent them In the highest legisla
tive body of the nation.
As an officer in the National1 Guard
Frank White devoted himself to the
building up of a strong organisation,
and he served with distinction in the
Phiilipines, where he held the rank of
major. He served, as governor of the
state for two terms, and in that posi
tion he proved himself a capable and
conscientious official. His legislative
recommendations and his administra
tive acts wei4 of a character which
demonstrated his interest in the wel
fare of the state and his business
like grasp of its affairs.
When the Great War came he ten
dered his services immediately 'to the
government of his country, and In that
war he acquitted himself a soldier
should, returning to private life with
the respect and affection of the men
whom, he had commanded and for
whose welfare he had been solicitlous
at all times.
Colonel White is a progressive man,
careful in forming his opinions, and
sturdy in maintaining them. His con
tact with the events of the world war
has Impressed him with a deep sense
of the duty which our nation owes .to
Its neighbors, arid of the importance
undertaking the performance of
that duty in such a manner that the
proper development of our own nation
•shall not be hammered or impeded.

Two candidates for the Republican
nomination for congress are presented
for the consideration of the voters of
the First district. One of these Is
John M. Baer, the present Incumbent,
and the other Is O. B. BurtneSs, of
Grand Forks. What is known about
these two men which will enable the
voters to arrive at an intelligent de
Mr. Baer came fo North Dakota a
very few years ago, a youth just out
of school. He located in the western
part of the state, and there,..after ttefc
ultory work in various occupations, his
facility with the pencil gained for him
a position as cartoonist on a local
weekly paper. His chief labor was to
draw a mort or less funny picture
once a week. Later he performed
similar work for a Bismarck maga
zine whose salacious treatment of
current events has made it notorious..
Mr. Townley thought he needed
picture for his Nonpartisan ILeader,
published at Fargo, and the young
manipulator of the "pencil was given
a Job with the Fargo publication. A
vacancy occuring in the First district
through the death of Congressman
H^Igesen, Townley picked his protege
for the place, and Baer was elected.
Probably never before was a man
elected to congress as little known
Baer, or ^ho had so little of exper
ience and achievement to warrant his
election. He had been a resident of.
the district barely long enough to
qualify as a voter in it. Ife had no
business experience, no professional
knowledge, and no record of public
service of any kind to indicate that he
was a suitable man to make laws'for
the -nation. Ninety per eent of the peo
ple whose representative Tie, became
never heard of him. He was selected
by his sponsor, Mr. Townley, appar
ently for the sole reason that he was
a handy man to have around, and one
who would do as he was told. The
record which he has made In congress
justifies the estimate placed upon him
at League headquarters. He has oc
cupied space In the House of Repre
sentatives, and he has drawn his pay.
Aside frbm a mere handful of person
al acquaintances, nobody knew that
he existed' before he was sprung as a
congressional candidate, and since his
election nobody has known that he
was in Washington. He has orignated
nothing and contributed nothing. He
has been the nonenltity that his boss
expected and desired him to be. and
from that standpoint he may be con
sidared a success.
Mr. Burt Dees was born on a farm in
North Dakota. He came of a family
of progressive and successful farmers,
anff his boyhood was spent on the
farm, where he became familiar with
every sort of farm wark'. He was
givem hia early training in the schools
t/t his county and graduated with
!rMit from the university of his na
tive state. He engaged in the practice
of law and has built up for-himself a
successful practice. He gavfe his coun
ty enenpretic and efficient service k»
state's attorney, and was elected tb
the state legislature by a vote which
came near being unanimous. In the
legislature he displayed a familiarity
with the affairs of the sate which gave
him a commanding position In the
house of which he was a member.
whole life has been lived among
the- people, who are now to have an
opportunity to vote for hihi a position
of greater honor and responsibility.

copper ore will be transported by
what are declared to be the most eco-'

The- United Verde intends tp tear
down the overlay of one of its largest
ore bodies and with the waste dirt
and rock, build a platform far below
In the gulch- to accommodate a new
townsite that will adjoin the present
town of Jerome,

There are times I gfet to doubtin' tliat.
there is a God above
Who is rulin' us in mercy and for

Now an* then some awful sorrow
shakes my faith in hint a bit
An' I wonder, if He's -gentle,
such hurts He will permit.
Then I hear the song birdaslngin' out
their choruses of glefe,
An' I know no mortal ever made the
robins in the tree.
Oh, the humblest daisy bloomin' Is a
