The rodeM s News t- expose to the world just what sort of a sport Jl F.- Redend is. In order to do this, it will be, well first to dig a few years into the past 'of one J. F. Redmond. His career will be found to have been checkerAd for some time before he ever come to impose himself upon the unsuspecting taxpayer of Sheri dan county. J. P. Redmond used to live at Glas gow, where he run 'a "candy store" and do auditing 'and bookkeeping for several business Arms. His reputation for efficiency grew and grew. Finally he was made city elerk for the' then thriving city of Glasgow. He lived in those days in much. the same manner that he has lived since he 'came to Plentywood, at a .$O00 a month pace on a hundred and fifty dollar a month salary. He finally came to the end of the rope. The man who was mayor of the city of Glasgow, at the time that "Sunny Jim" Redmond arrived at the ropes end, was J. E. Dawson, who is now the vice-president of the Rocky Mountain Fire Insurance Company of this state, finally arrived at the end of his patience and sent the con stable to get our efficient Auditor one day. Immediately something happened. The candy store owned by J. F. Redmond accidentally caught fire. The city books were in the store. - h, fire, would it lick up all the at evidence? What a fond hope! g ut, alas, a couple of the books were saved. l hese books were audited by an t dltor. Were only these books left, goodness, the rest were horned. n The expert auditor found that what books that were saved, showed our "hnest (?), faital (?), eMcient (?), capable (?) coonty auditor wits so many yers of experience, was S$892 short, but the -mil a cpuntiug shdwed that there was` thous ands of dogma short.

Now, in .p.te ti this record, let the Producers Nets Jelj tie people what the man (?) Redmond does to show how biga nman is: How manly he is! Let us tell the story he i# peddling about his opponent, the farmers' can didate, Mrs. Beatri ejX O'Grady. Mrs. O'Grady in 1914 was appoint ed postmistreas of )riska, North Da kota, succeeding the first cousin of the editor of the Producers News, who quit the postoffice to become cashier of the Oaisa - State Bank. For .nine yearn Mrs. O'Grady held the office being appointed three times. Every six nuth fow nine years thb office wqs. inspected and the accounts were found perfet. During the latter years of her ten ure of office, her husband, John 0' Grady, came P itywood and took up ai homestead,,, rs. O'Grady re maining at Oriska holding her odffce as postmaster. In 1913, early in the winter, she came out to Plentywood to reside with her husband. Mrs. McKibbin acting as her deputy while she was gonse. In the spring, Mrs. O'Grady re turned to Oriska, North Dakota, asked for an inspection of the office because, she intended to resign and come to Plentywood to reside with her husband. The inspection was granted and the books were found to be perfect. Mgi. O'Grady resigned and prepared to move to Plentywood to join her hus band, and when about to leave a month later, the inspector came back and accused Mrs. O'Grady of padding her cancellation accounts, and charg ed that she was short about eight hundred dollars. She denied the allegations and stood trial. She presented the re s cords of her predecessors, for the pre vious six months, to the Federal n Court at Fargo before Judge Amidon, showing that in the six meiths prior , to. her tenure her record showed. that L the man she succeeded reported a t greater cancellation than she hd re r ported and that during the time of t her absence her deputy showed an in i creased cancellation and ihat the 3 gentleman who succeded her showed' r a large increase in e*neellation. - e ge trial lasted alert two ad a hlt hoals fnd the ry vhtdicated S her in just four mIutms Mrs. O'Grady then returned to her at Raymond; where she has lived the same exempacry life thai ae has al ways lived and to kneer the lady is to love and respet her. Mrs. OhGiadty, because of the fact that the farmers were acquainted with her ability, and pleoast meet mert, and bte ine inspiring life that she lived, nominated hter d the one L( Q piw Auditor. J. F. Rden -ran : tfxm hi. raisol d t GI g.w, u mI ass to Pleatywood to get tow ~ huue e~ ~ him. He heard some rumor of this trouble, and wrote to United States Senator Myers about the matter, and this man who has a "record" himself, sent the news to gentleman Redmond, that Mrs. O'Grady had been charged with a mistake in her cancellation of which she was acquitted in four min utes by a jury of business men. A. H; Chapman, a man whose family has figured prominently in the courts, one of his boys being charged and acquitted of the crime of murder and who should be the last man to point a finger at any man, much less a lady, with so little against her as Mrs. O'Grady, was sent out by James Redmond, honest gentleman that b4e is, at the county expense of ten cents a mile as surveyor of weight and measures, to dhow Senator Myers' letter to the farmers in his desperate desire to save himself. Nice, hon orable, Mr. Chapman, found that his back alley campaign was not getting him anything. The gutter snips were all going to vote for Redmond any way, and decent people don't expect purity from- a cess pool. He found that the letter was a "frost." The Producers News knew of the exist ence of the Myers letter an hour af ter its arrival. But kept quiet, know ing that 'Gentleman" James would soon expose his "foul soul." And just as we anticipated, he has pulled his "human maggot" stuff at the last moment, when he thought it would be too late for The Producers News to answer his dirty slander. Finding that his "dope" was weak, and not finding any with soul so low and mean and ditry as to pull the dirty "stunt" as to stand sponsor for it, "experienced" Jim sent a mental, moral and physical "mistake" by the name of H. L. Hitzman, not yet hav ing sunk so low as to want to pull the job himself, to Valley City, North Da kota, the county seat of Barnes coun ty and hired the Valley pity News, to publish the following article, which paper seeing "easy money" in sight, fell, for the story. The following letter from the cashier of the First National Bank of Valley City, North Dakota, explains itself: FORMER BARNES COUNTY WO MAN SEEKS OFFICE IN MONTANA - Mrs. O'Grady Would be Auditor of Sheridan County It has come to our notice the past 'week that Mrs. Bridget O'Grady, wife of John O'Grady, formerly of Oriska, is now ciindidate for the of fice of County Auditor of Sheridan County, Montana. This piece of news i$ rather inter esting to ua in :fie face of the fact that Mrs. p' rady'zs qualifications for an executive office of this calibre seem to be so medAcre. She was at one time postmistress at Oriska, but was dismissed from the position for mak ing false returns of cancellation % having merely estimated the amount ibstead of keeping accurate record aecordIg to Government regulations and wag found to be se e al hundre 'do-a" short when check.d up.
