Consistency, Thou Art a Jewel - One of Dawson county's strict ly Republican newspapers before election, now comes fortli with the statement that a democrat should be seated. Of course, he should be seated, and if this same news paper had worked for this man's election—a home man — as it should he would have been elected, and it would have done with all this roar about why lie should be seated. A paper makes many enemies dur ing election, and if Its editor can not figure out where he is getting his daily bread, lie should not come "craw-fishing" around after the thing is over, trying to make things harmonious for himself once again. Election is over and there seems no cause to bring up the past—it stands bad enough. Being bought up, makes matters just that much worse.

Myers of Montana ar rived in Washington yesterday, bringing with him a boom for Gov. E. L. Norris of Montana for Secretary of the interior in Presi dent Wilson's cabinet. Senator Myers says that Montana demo crats are strong for Norris for this cabinet office and will exert their utmost influence to secure his appointment. It is known from various sources that the ap pointment of Governor Norris would be well received through out the West, for his views on con servation and public land questions are well known and generally ap proved throughout public land states, but this very fact, it is feared, will operate against his appointment, for Governor Norris has many times antagonized the critical conservationists and they will set up a howl of protest if it appears he is being seriously con sidered for this office. Senator Myers, however, is going to use his influence in behalf of Gover nor Norris and thinks he will have the support of some other western men. Don't Overlook The Editor The post office rules state that a publisher must not send papers to subscribers who are more than twelve months in arrears without their consent and a promise of payment given in writing. Now we have a few on our lists that are nearing this mark, and we do not desire to lose them or can we afford to attempt to do what Uncle Bam says we cannot do. Now you will save us a great d.-al of trouble by calling at this office and getting yourself placed on the advance list. On every paper you receive from this office is found the date when your subscription expired, and if you will kindly look this np' this week and call promptly you' , , . ' 1 yuu will be doing us a faver and it will ^ ""'l je appre< iated. It you are more than ibis in ar rears we are obliged lu place a one cent stamp on every paper or cut your uame from our lists. You can plainly see that to keep send ing papers and affixing a one cent stamp would mean nothing more than plain bankruptcy for a news paper, within a short time. We do not desire to cut you from the lists, so there you are. Now we believe that a newspaper should be paid for just the same as anything else that one buys, and if you can believe this same way, we are sure that you will call early and relieve our mind of the yreat pressure that is brought to bear upon us by some people not keeping their subscription up to date. We have been trying to give you the best newspaper in this section and from what our subscribers are tell ing us we believe that we have succeeded, and you should recip rocate by calling on us promptly and either give us a good lickiug for sending you the paper or by paying up to the advance lists. Teddy Talks Discussing the plan of Andrew Carnegie to give an annual pension of $25,000 to fut ure retiring presi dents, Colonel Roosevelt said:"My interest is not in penson for future presidends but for the small man who has no chance to save and who faces direct poverty when he becomes superannuated."

' New County Officers Named At their adjourned meeting, the Board of County Commissioners of Gold an Valley couLty finished naming the officers for the new county.

The above clipping from the Sentinel Butte paper &eems to show that they are not entirely pleased with ONE county office given them. Well, we can hardly blame them. Beach should have given them the most of the offices as long as she had the temporary county seat. This "whole hog or none" business only lasts tbr a short time, generally.
