North Dakota Congrcuniah Tell#

Having decided again to become a
candidate for nomination and election
as a representative in congress from
North Dakota, I deem it proper to.
Issue a statement expressing my pros*
ent convictions In regard to the ques
tions of national Import now confront
ing the people of the United States.
As a republican and asking for the
suffrages of republican voters, I sub
scribe to the cardinal principle of pro
tection to American industries, I be
lieve, however, that the time has coma
to subject the schedules of the pres
ent tariff to a close scrutiny in order
that duties which give undue prefer
ence or which are Ineffective may ba
changed to meet present conditions.
I believe that notably in the case of
iron, coal, lumber, and wood pulp tha
tariff should be removed, except suoh
countervailing duties as may be nec

corporate wealth made pc^sible by
I believe that all public service cor
porations should be subjected to gov
ernment control, and that for tha pur
pose of taxation and regulation a
physical valuation should be made of
all corporate property. To be effec
tive, control must extend to the capi
ta! of corporations. Capitalisation
of franchises and of monopoly rights
ahould not be permitted.
I believe that in the not remote fu
ture a law should be enacted requir
ing corporations engaged in interstate
business to incorporate under nation

am unalterably opposed to any sys

of the present system which will give
banks controlled by groups of

I would have no man compromise
his principles, but wherever differ

the question of choice of party candi

Of my record in this and the pre

scrutiny. I may have made mistakes
in the analysis of present conditions
and committed errors In the solution
of the problems confronting us, but

Probably every one that ever looked at a range was
told by the salesman that it was a "fuel saver."
That's because they all realize that fuel economy is
the most attractive of all features about a range to av
Most of this "economy talk" is just talk with no
reason behind it, but we can show you exactly why the
Monarch will cut down your fuel bills.
Ordinary "cast iron and steel ranges" waste fuel,
because after a little use the bolts work loose, where the
steel is bolted to the iron, and the stove putty dries up
and falls out of the seams.
Then it beging to take more fuel to keep afire on
account of the "air feaks" through the "once tight"
joints which open up wider year by year till the range
soon coonsumes twice as much fuel as it did when new
Good Sound Reasons for
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can never have
For around every opening into the body there is a
Malleable Iron frame to which the steel is rivited.
No puttp is needed in such joints. They are air tight
when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built in this, way they might
be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction versus
stove bolts and stove putty. It's important to
every one using or buying a range.
