He was doubtful a bout Niels Madsen who has served him well in the past, but not so well lately. And what was worse Niels had faults, bad onel There is a growing conviction in the nub he mind that it is high time that Niels retire from office. He has been there a long, long time, and is getting crabby at times and has illusions of grandeur, sometimes thinking he is a greater man then the little corporal himself. Again at times, when in his cups, and that is most of the time lately he makes sarcastic and insinuating remarks about Polks printing bills and sometimes even dares to com pete with Harry for the actual control of the commissioners themselves. Harry has engineered a scheme a couple of times to get Niels to resign or to have county board remove for cause, but Niels was not so easy to han dle—Niels knew so much about Harry, his commissioners and their doing that they did not dare to sail. However, Niel s illusion grandeur and imperial poses noyed and vexed the little Dakota Corporal. He had to rid the ticket of him if possible but he feared that if he openly gave Niels the axe. Niels would squeal and thus eliminate the Dagmar vote from all the Polk candidates. Harry had to be slick and he was. He vived with Chris Christiansen, county assessor, another Polk pick ed court house official whose office has been abolished by the amalga mation of offices put over by the commissioners, who, too, has quite a pull with the Danes, to file for Clerk & Recorder against Niels, with the arrangement that Harry would pretend to support Niels while secretly carrying on a whis pering campaign against him and by this trick eliminate Niels with out an irrepution while nominat ing Chris.-It was the game he and his clique played on Ed. Spoklie the of an con last campaign. Niels was over to the Hot Springs taking the baths when this scheme was hatched, getting in shape for the campaign. The plan seemed to be working fine until Robert Wheeler the county surveyor, not a Polk picked offi cer, who the county commissioners took off the pay roll because Wheeler refused to make contribution to Polk, filed for Clerk & Recorder. This upset all of Harry's calculations, for if Niels and Chris were the only candidates for the democratic nom ination, one or the other were bound to be nominated: if Chris won, fine and dandy, but if Niels came out on top again, Harry was prepared to do the best he could to get along with him. But Wliee ler's candidacy made a three cor nered fight—with the Dane vote split, the chances favored Whee ler's nominaation. To make bad matters worse, Niels his mind cleared up at the baths, woke up to Polk's game and emitted a squawk that made the wilkins ring. He comemnced to yammer about Polk's printing claims, a bout the printing that is being done illegally, over in Harry's printing shop in Williston; he meowed about certain labor and gas claims, and hinted at other things which sent the shivers down Chairman Olson's spine. This altered the situation. When Niels showed his teeth it was not long before Polk and his machine dropped Chris as a candidate and started hitting the trail for Niels in earnest. Olson is out campaign ing to beat the band for him now. The Polk clique folded up quick, So Niels dossed his yap and all hands nTV d the cook are out in the hustings beating the hush to beat Bob Wheeler. Chris has been as sured, however, that he will be taken care of with the appiont ment of county treasurer in case of Niels' nomination and election. Now Chris ia. reported to be out hirnadf plugging for Niels by hn ! frn g up the Dane vo te. The nomination of Wheeler, how ever, and the defeat of Hunter would just about wreck thePolk merhhw. The prim«* wfll tell fat a the tala. Sheriff Hans Madsen anymore. Not » 1 * 0 » he has much against him, outside of his hanoing aver so many Sheriffs Sale Notices to the Redstone Review, but because he realizes that Hans i» rapidly sap ping and is actually a he avy teao for the Polk machine to carry. But the situation is such, that Harry did not dare take risk to ditch Hars at this time. But it is remg whispered about that Harry and his stooges arc quietly throwing their support to another democra tic candidate m hopes of éliminât ing Hans in the primaries. How ever, most of the wise ones dis count this. It is also said Polk has a candidate for Sheriff on the Re Publican ticket his democratic to fall back on if Pa1 . candidate fails. Court k r has .

Carl as no opposition for the nomina tion. So Polk has his candidates all lin fcd up on the democratic ticket wnich he hopes to nominate July 21, and sleet November thus sec uring himself in the possession of the county printing contract for the year to come and seeing that all the legal publication go to his paper in the future. And by the way, it i s reported, that to m ake sure of the printing contract a s well as all of the le gate, Harry is dealing for the pur of the Redstone Review which he proposes to consolidate with his Plentywood Herald, thus eliminating possible competition. The control of the board of County Commissioners, with the control of the Clerk & Recorder's office, now that the office of sessor and treasurer has been con solidated with it, will make Harry Polk a power, a very Hitler as it wore, In Sheridan county. And it is for this that tho little Napoleon from Williston is bidding for with all his energy. as But folks coming in from the precincts report that there is a very powerful and growing senti ment out on the farms to "clean the court house" this campaign. Hundreds of voters feel that the Polk picked candidates have been on the political pap long enough and should move along and give a of the Holiday Association, and Henry R. Smith of the Executive Committee of the Farmers Union are colaborating and are rqpres ting their respective organization in calling of this important mass meeting, and they in the name of their organizations urge every farmer, and worker in the three counties who possibly can, to al tend. CONSERVATION neighbor a chance. Fat paid jobs with little work that most anybody can do are scarce now days and numerous vo ters feel that there is no reason why that a favored clique should hold these fat jobs forever and live on the luxuries of the land. So election day there may be some surprises. Over in the republican primar ies there is only one contest and that is for the nomination of Sheriff. Robert Smith who calls himself the farmers' and work ers' candidate and proclaims that he wears no man's collar is being opposed for the nomination by Paul Kurtz, retiring county trea surer. It will be a close race be tween them. DROUGHT RELIEF MASS MEETING ( Continued from Page 1) formulate relief activities in this section.
