An Interview with Prof. Salimitt,, the
Opposition Nominee*
Schmitt of Jamestown1, nomi­
nee for state superintendent on the
Opposition ticket, was a caller at the
Republican office last Friday. He
was on his way home from conduct
ing, a summer school at Forman, and
went north on* the Northern Pacific
Friday afteruoon.
After introducing himself as Mr.
Schmitt, city superintendent of
schools at Jamestown ha was asked:
"You are the populist candidate
lor state superratendent?"
"No, I am not, a candidate, I am
the nominee, I will admit. I received
a telegram while sit Elleadale asking
me if I would accept, and before I
could get a reply- to the commit tee
that made the nominaticB.s they had
adjourned andigone horn^.: I notified
the committee that, I would- not ac
cept the nomination, and. they re
quested me to wait until after they
bad met again before withdrawing.
I will do this but if I follow my own
inclination I shall .withdraw. I have
a very good position whore I *im, as
city superintendent of sohools at
Jamestown. If She state superinten
dence- were only out of-.' politics I
would not object to- accepting if there
any assurance that I. could have
the place long enough to t:ceomplish
something. But to give up. what I
have now got, and go into this polit
ical fight, where I. have certainly got
to get trom ten to fifteen thousand
republican votes-to bo elected, and
then q^nly for a two years term, I
really can't see may thing .in -it for me.
Mr. llaliand has-made the best sup
erintendent the state has ever had,
and lor the educational interest of
the* state it would be a pity, to make .
a-, change."
'"•Then you hasw not, withdrawn?"
'-Not, exactlyI.believ&I have to-•
life a withdrawal- in some f-orm with
the officials at Bismarck.. I have not
done so- yet. I .will meet with the
committee at Fargo next- wnek, and
jhave promised not to do. this until
jafter tiaat meeting. This4s all I care
feo say about, iJu If you.soy anything
about me, saj.I.aai, the- nominee,if
you wish to, but, please-do not say
that 1 am a candidate."
''B,«st if
should:raa andgetsthe
election harj&j'ou anything new. or
novol to inaugurate inte, the adminis
tration of the. affaiiR-of- the office?"
"No, I can't say. that. I have. The
inducement is being,lie-Id out to. me
that on .account of the scandalous
stories regarding. Ma 11 and I could
gat. republican votes, enough t© elect
nie. But uvea, then, I should feel.
that I bad boen elected by s&publi
votes, and. would necessarily have
,to act 5u harmony with the republican*
jjaduiinistration, ofi the state.. I don't:,
that 3. could: make any inaprovment:.
in the administration of the office.,
and for the shaft time I would be»
these it would hardly be worth while
trying. Our educational, iuterests-ia
the stata are. in very good shape, but
of course there is room, for improve
ment, and perhaps thee© always will
Mr.. Schmitt is a fine looking man,
'and would be taken for a clergyman
in a crowd any wher®. If he should,
happeu to be the next state superin
tendent he would no doubt continue
to be what he is today, an educator
instead of a calamity politician. The
Opposition have choson more wisely
than they knew.
After having speut two weeks in
the Chicago markets, I shall be pleas
ed to show the ladies of Oakes and
vicinity some of the many new cre
ations in fall and winter millinery.
Will also be prepared to do firsfj
class dress makiug at reasonable
prices. I solicit a share of your pat
ronage. I shall be ready for busi
ness by Sept. 15, 1898, one door west
of Oakes Bakery.
