The Record la eateted at the UMM foet
offlce —rtr
Below we gin a series of literary
spasms thrown by tbe Advocate man
last week. It will be raaenbered
that tbls same Advocate man is tbe
geqtleman that bas heretofore kept
absolutely quiet ffhlle tbe otber news
papers of the county were informing
the people of tbe county that tbe
board of county commissioners were
running tbe affairs of tbe county with
out any regard whatever for the law
of the state, whenever such law came
in conflict with their "own sweet will."
We call particular attention to tbe
artistic grammar and beautiful diction
at the Advocate article.
The rotten dope which Is being
hashed and rehashed in some of the
weekly and fortnightly periodicals of
this county (at the instigation of the
Czar of Emmons who has to let loose
'about so often) in their endeavors to
try to besmirch the characters of our
county commissioners—A BODY OF
about as much weight with the peo
ple, we believe, as a snow ball in
Talk about a grand jury investiga
tion, bring it on—no danger, they are
merely wasting their wind on tbe des
ert air. However, w^at could the
average grand jury accomplish?
COUNTANT and have things inves
tigated properly, because If there has
been any crooked work we would all
like to know about it, and while the
leaning up is going on, let's make
it general and thorough. Talk about
law enforcement, it is truly amusing
and at the same time disgusting. Our
esteemed contemporary and his col
leagues could find plenty of good
material on this subject to write
about, but no that would not do,
they would be stepping on the toes
of their most ardent supporters.
While they are taking so much Inter
est in the taxpayers' welfare, why
don't they expose some of the real
rottenness and doings that has been
going on, and at the same time see
that their own nose Is kept clean.
The big hullabaloo being made In
this county over nothing, Is certainly
a disgrace and th|e people should not
stand for such rot. The first real
cause of all this dope being printed
is due to the fact that the commis
sioners are men with minds of their
own and cannot be handled by the
gang, and the next moat important
ERS THEY HAVE, and we would
like to see every taxpayer Investi
gate for himself, in place of listen
ing to the whimperings of a dyed-ln
the-wool gang politician. People in
vestigate for yourselves and put a
quietus to this disgraceful tommyrot
continually thrown upon you by this
character defamer of a state wide re
putation. In a recent issue he
cornea out like a regular "sissy" and
condemns the board for giving the
Advocate the work of printing the
election ballots. Now wasn't that
awful? He also goes on to state
tliait it was necessary for him to
siend $100 several years ago to se
cure enough extra material for the
printing or these ballots. It seems
so strange why some people will use
such exorbitant figures, wben fflndr
smaller ones would answer the pur
pose much better. We have more
than enough material to print the
big ballots and it cost us between 930
to $40. Thus the people are deceived
and he is pulling the wool over your
eyes in the same manner, with re
ference to other matters as with this,
continually. IF THERE IS ANY
The editor of the Record made di
reel and positive aaaertionsas to where
tbe law was violated. We charged,
and we still charge—that bridges were
illegally built.
Tbat they were illegally paid foi
That while we have not charged
tbat either of the commisioners was
"boodled" by the Hennepin Bridge
Company, we have asserted—and now
avert—that were there dishonest men
on tbe board they could have, in col
lusion with the Minneapolis trust
concern. turned a pretty penny by let
ting contracts without submitting
competitive bids.
We have stated that there are many
complaints as to the building of a road
grade west of Hazelton—a grade cost
ing with its culverts something like
three tliousand, seven hundred dollars.
And we have lately been informed
that there is no bill for this work on
file containing the statutory affidavit
of tbe man who did the work as to Us
being a just bill and tbat the work
was honestly performed. If we have
been wrongly informed, the Record
would be only too glad to correct it if
any county officer knowing the facts
will show us in tbe columns of tbe
Record wherein we have been misin
formed. Ample space iu the Record Is
at the command of any county officer
or any one else who can throw light
on the mystery connected with the
building of tbe costly grade west of
Hazelton. All the Record or tbe pub
lic wants to know is the trutb regard
ing this and other public transactions
by tbe county officers.
We have stated that there is abso
lutely no law authorizing tbe with
holding of ^commissioner's resignation
for months, until after an election had
been held, so tbat an alleged "appoint
ment" could be made of a man as com
missioner simply because he was in
full accord with the members of the
board, tbe treasurer and their field
agent, tbe clerk of court, and could be
depended on to indorse everything
tbat tbey bad done or might d.
We claimed that it was not right
for a man to actually reside for months
in Linton, as Mr. Sherwood lias done,
and, knowing (hat he would leave his
old home for permanent residence
elsewhere, neglect to present his resig
nation in time to allow the people of
bis district to chouse his successor at
tbe last general election.
It is such things as these—such
feverish anxiety to keep the choice of
commissioners from the electors and
fiill tbe same by appointment—that
leads the people to think that there
may be very grave reasons for believ
Ing that there are other things be
sides illegal bridge-building and road
making that need investigation.
in his circular before the rettular
election Treasurer ilerolz iterated and
reiterated, "Streeter lies!" "Streeter
lies!" In tbe article given above, the
Advocate editor yells, "Streeter lies!"
"Streeter lies!" But neither of tliem
gives particulars wherein he lies. It
is eaay to shout "Czar!" and "Liar!
But thatdoes does not prove anytbing,
and It certainly does not refute the
assertions made by tbe Record as to
the illegal acts of the commissioners.
"The ass knoweth its master's crib"
is an old saying. But in this instance

it seema that tbe animal took a
time about finding It. Several asontbs
bare passed since tbe three other
county newspapers began to call at
tention to tbe fact tbat the oounty
board'were running things at a pretty
lively gait in doing the bmlaws of tbe
oounty. But In all that time, up to
last week, tbe Advocate nan bad not
succeeded io accumulating sufficient
nerve, or gall, or whatever it may be,
to attempt to defend the hoard la ita
clear violation of lav. It is probable
that the near approach of the date for
appointing official newspapers for the
county has caused the asa to appre
ciate tbe fact tbat Its masters* crib la
full of patronage in tbe way of official
And Isn't It a tea siaio of affairs
wben violations of the law in the oon
duct of oounty business havebeoome so
much a habit that a oounty newspaper
attempts to create a prejudice against
those oounty officers who have Insisted
tbat tbey have no right to disobey the
plain letter of the law in the matter
of holding the special election? Tbe
Advocate howls dolefully regarding
the natter of aipense, and claims
tbat the holding of the election
should bave been "prevented." But
our esteemed economical friend of tbe
Advocate failed to throw a fit or fits
as to "expense" wben tbe commission
ers were illegally building expensive
bridges and paying at one meeting
more than a bridge company bad asked
for practically the sasse work at a
previous meeting. Tbe trouble Is that
there baa been too much Ignoring of
tbe law in the conduct of county busi
ness but we hardly believe that the
people of tbe county would indorse
tbe application of bridge-building
methods to tbe holding of elections.
Tbe law says:
Wben a tie shall exist between
two or more persons for tbe senate or
bouse of representatives, the county
auditor tkall give notice to tbe sheriff
of tbe county, who
advertise another election, giving at
least ten days' notice."
Thatlsall there is to tbe law. Itglvea
the officers no option in the matter.
It doesn't say that they "may," or
tbatthqy are "athorlsed if they think
proper," "to call another election,"
but that they "thall call another elec
tion." As an article from the Steele
Herald says"—
On Mbndmy, December 28, 1908, a
special election will be held in the
Twenty-sixth senatorial district, and
the voters of Kidder and Emmons
counties will be called upon to elect
member of the house of representa
There would seem to be consider
able misunderstanding in regard to
this special election. From remarks
which the writer bas heard one would
infer that it is merely the scheme
of one political faction to plaice. an
other faction, at some kind of a disad
vantage. This is not tbe case, bow
ever, as anyone who will take the
trouble to look up the law In regard to
the peculiar circumstances existing in
this district can very readily deter
It is true that this special election
will cost a considerable sum of moiey,
which is to be regretted but it Is a
matter quite beyond the manipulation
of any political faction, and a pro
ceeding for which the legal talent of
the district has been unable to find
any legal alternative.
The state of Xorth Dakota -has a
code of laws for the government and
guidance of its people—its officials as
well as its private citizens—and a
part of one of the sections of that
code reads as follows:
"When a tie shall exist between
two or more persons for the sen
ate or house of representatives,
the county auditor shall give no
tice to tbe sheriff of the oounty,
who shall immediately advertise
another election."
In the Twenty-sixth District there
has been a tie between two persona
for the house of representatives. Now,
if you were on of the above-mention'
ed officers of either of the two coun
ties involved, what would you do?
This cry of "Csar" by Mr. Patter
son's paper Is not original. It was
first applied by Field Agent Books,
the gentleman of leisure wbo can be
seen preaching politics on the street
cornera at almost any time of any year,
and wbo for elgbt years, although
democratic oounty chairman a large
part of the time, has never foiled to
do the work mapped out for him as a
member of the oomblne with no party
politics originated elgbt yean ago,
and whlcb during that time haa sue
eeeded In keeping Messrs. Books and
Herolz continuously In office. It
tbe cry of the same Books wbo en
tered into a conspiracy with Mr. Pat
terson to attempt to control certain
populous preclncte at the late election
by having both judges work together
for Heroic and Storey, and also for
The "GVir" cry as applied to the
Record editor Is altogether too funny
A czar, or boas, as tbe term Is general'
lv understood In polltlcs( is a gentle
man of leisure such as Mr. Books. A
bass Is out working for his combine all
tbe time. He frequently spa
more or less correctly two or throe
languages, and uses that fact for tbe
purpoeeof creating and bringing to
his aid race prejudice wherever possi
ble. He generally has or claims to
have a lot of votes In his pocket be
cause of consanguinity In the nutter
of nationality, and be uses tbls In
fluence for tbe purpose of "throwing
the scare" Into candidates with
wobbly backbone who may be running
forofflce. If Messrs. Herolz and Books
do not It the populsr conception of a
political boe». where Is tbe man wbo
does fit it?
Streeter hardly possesses the quali
fications of a cztr In this respect. He
speaks but one language, although
he admits tbat he wishes he could
spsak more. Tbe requirements of his
occupation demand tbat he stick elate
ly to business. He esnnot, like Mr.
Books, hire some one to do his official
work and gad about tbe oounty mak
ing political Medicine. In fact, he
hasn't the time. The ideal boss is
different In this respect. True, the
editor, like the pictures we sea of the
typical political boas In the papers, hss
a bay-window, hut be his no diamond
shirt-stud as big as a bsan. The po
litical boas also hath many men who
owe blm shekels for which he cbargeth
In interest maximum rates, but sue
oeedeth in convincing his victim that
such vietlm is under great obllgatio ns
for the loan of tbe money and must
therefore vote as the loaner wishes.
But It is our "friend" Herolz and not
the editor In this county that loans
tbe money to tbe multitude. Tben,
again, the typical county bass is sup
posed to be powerful at the county
bouse he takea snuff that bis under
lings may sneese be Is -present when
tbe dsds meet be has all to say as to
wbo shall be janitor, who shall do this
and who shall do that, from shoveling
a bit of coal to the giving out of a few
dollars' worthof printing. Surely, theo,
it must be bis friend Qua—wbo wouldn't
loan blm hisautomoblle—to whom Mr.
Patterson makes reference, for tbe
editor does not visit the county build
ing half a dozen times a year, and hss
never asked a favor from tbe members
the county board, and doesn't In
tend to.
Seriously, these cries of "boas'' and
•czar," as applied to tbe editor of the
Beoord, cut little ice. Tbey bave no
bearing whatever on the question aa to
whether Herolz used county currency
with which tp make loans, or whether
tbe oounty board let bridge contracts
Mr. Patterson says tbat the Record
complained because be (Mr. P.) was
given tbe election ballots to print.
It did nothimr of the kind. Tbe Rec
ord called attention to the fact tbat
tbe plain letter of tbe law was violated
—aa It had been repeatedly violated—
by sending work out of tbe county that
oould be done here. Ia tbere anytbing

The fact of tbe matter Is that the
entire Rooks-Herolz-Patterson bunch
are so sore over the result of tbe re
cent election tbat, In tbe absence of
everything with which to disprove
wbat tbe editor of the Record has
ebarged, their Newspaper Organ and
the Field Agent of tbe bunch, follow
ing the precedent set by tbe former
Big Boss in his German circular, now
yell at tbe top of their voices: "He
lies! lie lies He is a csar!—a csar!"
All of which howls of pain and rage
do not explain jrby the Illegal bridge
building was done or why the people
of tbe First District were not allowed
to choose their own commissioner.
That is all there Is to it. Tbe. ed'
itor of tbe Beoord Is in the Becord of
fice practically a|l of the time. He has
his living to make, and therefore he
not have the leisure time In
which to go about tbe oounty striving
In two or three lsngusges to cref.te
anybody a boas.
Tbe funny Advocate editor doesn't
want a grand Jury because it would be
expensive." How remarkable that
he has not said anything about the
"expense" of paying a thousand dollars
more for a bridge at one meeting than
the bidder bad offered to do the work
for a few weeka before, or tbe thirty'
eeven hundred dollars paid for tbe
Imperfect road west of Haselton that
no commissioner seems to know any
thing about? Does tbe Advocate ed
itor believe tbat the taxpayers of Em
mons county are going to allow these
methods of conducting public busi
to go on forever without ascer
taining from an authoritative source
just wbat Is being* done? Tbe Advo
cate wants "an eipert accountant"
Inatead of a grand Jury. Imagine an
eipert accountant seeking informa
tion as to whether work paid for waa
honestly done,or how mucbcouoty cash
used by Treasurer Herolz (with
his personal obecks substituted there
for) during those weeks In tbe fall and
winter a year ago wben no depoaitor
or would-be borrower In tbe United
States could obtain money from tbe
banks. Or Imagine an expert account
ant measuring the costly road west of
Hazelton to ascertain whether it was
honestly built snd honestly paid for!
'It is to laugb!"
The Advocate editor may rest as
sured that tbere will be a grand Jury
at the May term of court. He Intl
mates in his paper tbat there are oth
or violations of law by otber county
officers. If so, wbjr does be not do as
the Bocord editor bss done—mske bis

Extracts from an Article
Week's Haselton
The much-talked-of special election
to settle the legislative tangle and
give the Twenty-sixth its full quoto of
representatives has been called at last,
the formal notice appearing else
where in this issue. Just what Mr.
Herolz will do is problematical al
though It was stated some time ago
that he would not make any active
campaign in view of the fact that Em
mons county now has the senator and
one representative—since the state
canvassing board seated Mr. Streeter.
Mr. Tuttle will run again—a fact which
caused Messrs. Herolz and Storey and
their supporters to use every method
known to prevent the special election
being held, even trying to fix matters
so that the district would not be rep
resented in the lower house at the
beginning of the session, in the hope
that one of them might be seated.
As it is, the special election will be
held, and the people will have a
chance to say which they wish to rep
resent them—a political trickster who
is willing to let the district suffer to
further his own selfish ends, or a man
against whom his enemies can bring
nothing except that fortunately he has
money, made in legitimate business,
and, unfortunately, has a wife with
whom he is unable to agree.

Tbere is an amusing English defini
tion of "gentleman." It is "a man
wbo wean a silk hat and if be has
no other title Insists upon having 'Esq.*

addressed to him."
The west end Londoner of social
pretensions accepts this definition in
practice. Summer and winter. In rain

expects to have the distinction of "es

en tbe envelope the prefix "Mr." As
a matter of fact, the number of Eng
