The following from Governor Roose
volt's Ohio speech is good political dcc
triiio: "I come to speak to you because
we recognize through the nation that
the contest tins year in Ooliio is not,
and cannot be anything but a national
contest. It is idle to say it is local
yes, and worse than idle—it is dishon­
est to make such an assertion where
the democratic platform lays its espec­
ial stress upon national questions. jf
a party raises an issue which it knows
is a false issue, merely for the hope of
carrying an election, then that party
snows in the most striking way that it
is tlie enemy of the country and unlit
to be entrusted with its government.
If the spokesmen of a party do not
and cannot believe what they say,
whether in the way of denunciation
or promise and especially it' they prom­
ise what they know they cannot per­
forin, and what is palpably intended to
not result in performance but in vote
getting at the moment, then they in
snlt the conscience and the intelligence
of every freeman fit to exercise a free­
man's privilege.
"This is just what the democratic
party in Ohio lias done at this* time
and just what its leaders, national anil
local, from the top down, are doing
when they speak of expansion,on trusts
and on free silver. It is the sincere be­
lief of all right minded men who have
the welfare of the nation close at heart
that the position taken by the Ohio de­
mocracy. speaking in reality for the
national democracy in this campaign,
is one destructive or national prosper­
ity at home and of national honor
•abroad. Moreover, it is impossible to
:avoid the conviction that their lead­
ers know that this is true, but are will­
ing to plunge the country into any dis
aster, provided only they can persuade
a sufficient number of dupes to put
them where they can gratify their
greed for office, their thirst for power.
I should not use such language in an
ordinary political contest. I use it now
as I should have used it had I been
alive during the years of the civil war,
The men whom we are now fighting
champion a cause which in its essen­
tials is the same as that championed
by the Dough Kaces and the Copper­
heads thirty-seven years ago. They
.vote the war a failure now, as tliey
voted it a failure then. They mouth
with hypocritical anxiety about a fre
press as they did then. They attack
the nation's credit and financial hon­
esty now as they did then, and exactly
as in those days, when they struck at
an evil they struck at it insincerely, so
tliey strike insincerely at any real
abuse of the present time, offering uo
remedy and standing ready to hamper
those who would really offer one and
when they propose a remedy it is a
measure which would aggravate ten
times whatever of evil actually exists
"They wish to discuss the question
of trusts, an economic question, and of
expansion, which is really the question
of upholding abroad the honor of the
flag and the interest of the nation, and
of making us rise level to our duties
as a world power. They hope to avoid
much discussion of the silver question
—much discussion of their advocacy of
a dishonest dollar—trusting that there­
by they shall be enabled to say to the
believers in free silver that they are
heartily In favor of It, and yet to fool
the men who stand for sound finances
l\v explaining to them that the ques­
tion is really relegated to the rear and
is not a live Issue. They cannot lie both
for and against free silver, and as loug
as they are for it it mqkes no differ
once whether they shout of whisper
thuir allegiance. In either case they
would have to turn their words into
nets should they come into power, and
in both cases, therefore, the menace to
the prosperity of the country and the
welfare of its citizens are equally
great. The salvation of this country lies
to no small extent in the fact that
while the bulk of one people fully ap
piociat'e the importance of party, and
tlio usefulness of party government,
yet that, they put country above party.
So it was in the civil war wlten the
war democrats honored themselves by
standing by the country and so it will
ie now. for we have a right to call
upon all sincere lovers of the flag.upon
all believers in national honesty and
•ivic uprightness, upon all men who
wish to bring about the betterment
ind uplifting of the mass of the people,
to stand with us until the heresies for
which our opponents now light have
boon relegated to the unclean dust
where they belong."
The Nebraska republicans, under
such loaders as Senator Thurston, are
not straddling. The republican state
platform roads:
We heartily endorse the wise, con­
servative and patriotic administration
of President McKinley, and congratu­
late the president upon his success in
dealing with the delicate and difficult
problems arising from our war with
Spain, and we repose implicit confi­
dence in his ability to cope with every
issue that may present itself for solu­
tion in the future.
While we deplore the insurrection
in the Philippine islands, yet we re­
cognize the duties and obligations im­
posed upon our nation by the victory
of our navy and the matchless valor
of our army, resulting in the treaty of
Paris, which imposed upon the .presi­
dent the duty of maintaining the au­
thority of the United States over the
territory acquired thereby, and so long
as there is one gun pointed at an Am­
erican soldier, so long as there is an
armed enemy assaulting our flag, so
long must patriotic and loyal Ameri­
cans uphold our president in effecting
protection, tranquility and peace to all
who recognize our lawful occupation.
We adhere unequivocally to the
gold standard, and are unalterably op­
posed to the free coinage of silver.
Gold lias been our standard since 1830
and is now the standard of every civ­
ilized and important country in the
world. After more than twenty
years of harmful agitation, and a cam­
paign of extraordinary earnestness
and full discussion, the people of the
United States by a majority of more
than 500.000 decided in favor of that
standard. Our experience and pres­
ent prosperity, in the amplest and
fullest measure, demonstrate the wis­
dom of that decision.
In Ohio, Kentucky and Maryland the
elections this fall will be of more than
passing interest. The Ohio campaign
will take on national importance from
the issues involved. In Kentucky
and Maryland it will be a fight be
tween the democrats and republicans
for control of state offices, but as na­
tional policies will bo discussed before
the voters, their verdict at the polls
may be taken as forecasting in a meas­
ure the presidential campaign. The
republicans will concentrate their best
efforts on Ohio, where, it is realized,
the party's Philippine policy will be
on trial before the people. The dem­
ocrats, in attacking expansion, have
thrown down a gauntlet which the re­
publicans gladly pick up. The repub­
licans are going into the fight in the
belief that the best thought of the
state will endorse the administration's
attitude and administer an emphatic
rebuke to those who would advocate
the surrender of the Philippines to
A combination of circumstances
unfortunately prevented Grand Forks,
the metropolis of the lower Red River
valley, from sending a company of
volunteers to the Philippines, but the
unfaltering patriotism of her citizens
has been demonstrated just the same
by the iilterai contributions of her
people to the fund to bring the regi­
ment home. With all prejudice and
all strife thrown one side, and recog­
nizing the fact that the North Dakota
regiment represents the whole state
and not merely the communities from
which the companies hail, the city of
Grand Forks raised a magnificent
benefit fund and cheerfully appor­
tioned it to communities financially
weaker but no less patriotic. Let
us hear no more from rival commun­
ities about the lnck of patriotism of
Grand Forks.
The people of North Dakota can
take a great deal of pride in such
generous words as these from the
Minneapolis Tribune:
The North Dakota regiment broke
camp at San Francisco Tuesday, and
is now on Its way to receive the well
earned plaudits of an appreciative
state. The regiment noc only made
a splendid record in the Philippines,
but it added luster to that rccorD by
doing all Its fighting with tiie enemy,
and ending its part of th- war when
it boarded the 'ranspo.t for home.
Fargo expects President McKinley
October 13, and will endeavor to make
the occasion of jiis visit one of the
most notable Fargo has ever seen.
At a meeting held to make plans for
the reception Congressman Spalding
was delegated to go to St. P'aul and
endeavor to secure the necessary con­
cessions to make the occasion one of
the most notable ever held in the
northwest. Mr. Spalding will en­
deavor to secure free transportation
for all the companies of the North
Dakota regiment Including battery A
and the First Regiment band, as well
as all other bands In uniform, besides
the G. A. R. veterans throughout the
state, and a one fare rate for the gen­
eral public. It is doubtful if this will
be secured, but it is thought probable
the railroads will transport the North
Dakota regiment free anyway.
Capt. Cogswell, of Company of
the First North Dakota, has accepted
his commission as captain in the vol­
unteers and will resume his service in
the Philippines. The war department
lias granted him a leave of absence for
forty days, however, in order that he
may visit for a time at his home*.
Editor Streeter takes this mean shot

The Homestead says there was a big
concourse of people present in Napo­
leon at the recent session of court.
The haystacks must have been
crowded to overflowing.
Amos Allen lias been non-inated *o
succeed Czar Reed in congress. Un­

policy of the administration.
.Terry Simpson was hooted off the
stage in Kansas, in the course of an
address. Enlightenment. is slowly
but surely overspreading the sun­
flower state.
The Fargo Argus publishes a very
creditable edition Monday, with a
grist of good material regarding the
First North Dakota.
It is estimated there will be two
millions of visitors in New York to­
morrow—to see Dewey.

sengers on the north bound J. & -N.
train were greeted with a novel sight,
A "few miles north of New Rockford
a man in a prairie box buggy, with
the shafts raised and held in the air
by rope lines, was being propelled
along the road by the wind at a
good steady gait. He had a bouse
door fastened behind which caught
the stiff wind and sent the rig bowling
along the «m!ooth prairie road as
merrily as if pulled by a horse. As
the prairie sailor turned into the main
road he guided his rig without diffi­
culty and in passing the train nodded
a hearty good day to the passengers.
He was about 3 miles from town and
had come some five or six and seemed
in a hurry to reach his destination.
