Joe Molloy tells the pub Lc that P. L. Orcutt demande! $50(> lu consideration for the support -jt the Clearwater Republican if the republican county ticket. What is the truth? After Molloy, by plain, \ unadulterated trickery and double crossing, became county chairman, he came to the Republican ollce In high spirits and said; "Now that 1 am county chairman lam going to see that you get some money this campaign; I want to And out about what you think you ought tp have out of the campaign fund." I We told Mr. Molloy that the par \ \y ought to raise the Republican $500; that there was little money in running a paper; that we prefer red to sell out and devote ill our lime to farming, and that we felt the party should bear the Expense of a party paper during the cam paign. Mr. Molloy said he would let me know what could b done, and assured us that the organiza tion. as long as he was in tie «ad dle. would recognize in a substan tial way the services-of the Repub lican. But Molloy lies when he says we demanded any sum whatever; we told him that we would be s whatever the organization cc ford to pay for publicity, an as in all former campaign! loyal and liberal in our support of all the candidates nominated by the will of the people. We have never in all our life made money a con sideration for supporting arty wor Ihy republican, while we have made principle a basis for support. Joe Kauffman knows that as soon as Mr. Abrams resigned at the de mand of Molloy to make rejoin for Molloy, that we told him piat in »dew of everything concerned that we hoped the republicans would not nominate, but indorse him, and that he would have the support of Ahe Republican no matter if the then rumored scheme, hatched later by Molloy, named a republican candi date; Mr. Kauffman knowji there was no string to that offer of sup port, but that it came voluntary from us on the ground that we were convinced the rank anil file of the republicans did not wait him, ixauffman kicked out; that he was giving entire satisfaction. Now what happened when we re fused to endorse a damnable, Jim a atisfted uld af 1 have, i, been Is in Blake trick by an office seeking re-i publican scoundrel?

We have been told by Probate Judge Merrill that the republican candidates did not want any space in the Repub lican; that they did not want any publicity. We have been practical :y ignored by .th» Molloy ring. Not one of thesd* cA&Aidates has visited gar. One sole job. totaling $ 12 , has been done for the republican county commltteé. And we want it understood that Molloy and about I the Republican ofllce since we re :used to swallow Molloy. Not one i . cent of republican county campaign , funds have been given this paper. The order for letter heads, that th i republican county chairman wanteü, must have gone to Jim Blake's or two others are responsible. Molloy knew he was tryiilg to buy us when he offered campaign funds; he was then trying to place a halter over our head and place us where we were under obligation to do the bidding of Joe Molloy; to place us where we dare not*-oppose his then maturing scheme to nomi nate Joe Molloy by proxy In a sec ret session of himself, as republican county» chairman. We told Molloy. regardles of consequences, that we would not support any ring-named, proxy-nominated republican^ and It has cost us money to stand up and be a man. But It is worth It. W'e have already replied in full nn the charge Imputing Improper motives to Mr. Kauffman. We say again that Joe Molloy Is a liar. Mr. Kauffman never made the prop osition. And no republican present will deny that when Molloy made the charge against Mr. Kauffman that we Immediately faced him and said — "You are not honorable. You yourself made the proposition that you are now laying to the discredit of Mr. Kauffman." It Is to the ad vantage of Molloy to lie. It is cost-J ing us needed money to stand up for what we believe Is right and [ dec( nt. We ask the republicans of . this county who believe in decent, I representative government, to help . up sor.d Joe Molloy down to defeat j on Tuesday. If you vote for Mol loy you are endorsing political ra8_ | eality, and putting a premium on help us kill it? Blake gang methods in the republl ran party in this county.

As chief owner and actual man after of the Wallace National bank, he so successfully guided the des tinies of that institution for his own benefit, that on June 10,1011, the liabilities of the bank were, deposits $110,000; borrowed money $30,00; $52,000of the assets of the bank were notes that Samuels dared not assert against the makers. $34.500 more would not bear in spection; this $86,000 Samuels, for reasons best known to himself and I the bank examiner, took up in stanter. by giving a mortgage or. the famous Samuels Hotel, includ ing the more famous bar. 'Where upon the bank examiner levied an to be, it my in put is one to are the I assessment of 100 per cent on the 8lockf and Samuels went out of the i . banking business. These records , .. Ne , ghbor Samuels" wrote upon the indestructisle pages In the archives ol the United States comptroller. In other words, the records at Washington show that H. F. Sam uels looted and wrecked the Wal lace National bank. Ills record as treasurer and gen eral manager of the Success Mining company, where he made his money to buy them acres which he talks about, shows that as a hardened millionaire mine owner he was an exploiter of labor, and that for want of safety appliances the Suc cess mine became a shambles, and furnished one of the darkest pages of Shoshone county mining history. He resigned as treasurer and manager of the Success Mining company on the 24th day of June, 1915, and would doubtless hafe been able to purchase more acres to clear and reclaim had not L. O. Wilson, the auditor who was put to work on the books, discovered that "Neighbor Samuels" had neglected to put in the treasury of the Suc cess Mining company the tidy sum ol $29.997.96. In other words, the books of the Success Mining com pany show that H. F. Samuels, non partisan candidate for governor was $29.997.96 short in his accounts. That he, on the 2nd day of July paid the sum back, and that hts personal check for such amount was on the 3rd day of July, 1915, de posited to the credit of the com pany In the Fidelity National bank of Spokane. Thus we have H. F. Samuels as I the ing for 'ny the the [ county attorney, false to his trust . and as such condoning arson, dyna I mitjnK and red murder . As a bank . er, we find that he wrecked the I j \y a j] ace National bank, and as the trusted treasurer of the Success | Mining company, $29,997.96 short ] in his accounts.

Langdon, N. 1)., Oct. 28. -An ap peal to the voters of North Dakota to "get right" with the boys la France, is made by Corporal R, J. \V.,rk of l.angdou in a letter to his father. "1 didn't think the sentiment of Cavalier county was as it proved t» be, and it is not too late to rectify it yet if they will show they are loyal this fall, by voting against all nonpartisan leaguers, or, in other words, voting right. "1 would hate to let a comrade in my company know how the votera in my community voted. You can put this letter in the paper if you want to. I cun truthfully say this, is the sentiment of the American soldier." The letter by Corporal Work la one of the strongest appeals ever made by a soldier In the trenches to the voters at home to "get right with the boys." "1 sincerely hope the voters of Cavalier county will change their views of the nonpartisan league be fore fall. If they don't, they are not hacking up their young men who are paying in full every day," says the corporal at another point in hla stirring letter. American Expeditionary Forces 1918. France. Sept. 9^j( Dear Father. I want to say a few words''in re tard to the Red Cross and the re sults of the primary election lit Cavalier county. It Is with regret that I notice the result of the pri mary election in our home county. I never expected the voters of the county would nominate a. man of the stamp Qf Otto Dettler, ' who, I understand walked out, of the legis lative assembly while a vâte was being taken on a resolution censur ing certain officers of the Red Cross for having referred to certain League leaders as having failed to support the government. The Red Cross was all right in 'ny case. Before I came to Frince t!\ey gave me a woolen blanket, hel met, sweater and wristlets, etc., and every loyal citizen should assist the Red Cross all they can. I think It is- a poor way to "keep the home fires burning" to elect men of the Dettler stamp. Or men who are willing to support aggita tors like Townley, Le Seuer and a bunch of adventurers who are mak I ing money off honest farmers. I have seen enough active service at the front to know what the Red ] Cross is doing there. • Any soldier can go to his quarters and get hot coffee, hot chocolate and sandwiches i and lunches of that kind. I have j had several myself and know just what they are doing for the Ameri j can soldiers over here. I have also I seen hundreds of wounded soldiers j who got, and get, these lunches while waiting for an ambulance. Any citizen who claims the Red ' Cross Is not doing wonders over ! here does not know w hat he is talk ing about and should be put out of sincerely hope the vot the way. e™ uf Cavalier county change their views of the Nonpartisan league be (Continued on page 4) " ■ "" . » imimilllllllllllliKllllllllllilllllimi!llllllimili..lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllltlllll|J "
