A hanging- is badly needed in
Since the organization of the
county and even before there
have been one or moreusually
moremurders every year, but
never yet has Beltrami county
had a hanging. It begins to be
pretty evident that due punish
ment has not been meted out.
Beltrami is no worse than the
other counties of northern Min
nesota its citizens are as peace
ful and law abiding as those of
any other and there are here no
more vicious, lower types than in
other counties similarly situated.
But perhaps the evil characters
who are here have grown bolder
because that they see crime go
unpunished in Beltrami county.
Let us all have justicethe
guilty equally with the innocent.
IN THE midst of much political
smoke it is a matter for congrat
ulation that positions on the
bench are not this year the foot
ball of politics or the prize of par
tisan success in northern Minne
sota. In both the Fourteenth
and Fifteenth judicial districts,
covering the northwestern part
of the state there is absolutely
no contest, the nomination and
election being conceded to the
present incumbents as a matter
of self interest on the part of the
people of these districts. The
condition prevails quite generally
throughout the state and we are
undoubtedly growing nearer to
the day when judicial selections
shall be made solely on the basis
of merit and entirely apart from
the consideration of politics.
