Washington, Oct. 25.—President Wilson today issued an appeal to the people to return a Democratic con gress in the November elections if they approve of his course in this critical period. Return of a Republican majority to either house of the congress, tihe president said, "would be certainly in terpreted on the other side of the wa ter as a repudiation of my leader ship." The president said he would accept the country's verdict without cavil, but that if it was adverse the power to administer the great trust assigned to him would be seriously impaired. Following is the president's appeal: "My fellow countrymen: "The congressional elections are at hand. They occur in the most critical period our country has ever faced or is likely to face in our time. If you have approved of my leadership, and wish me to continue to be your un embarrassed spokesman in affairs at home and abroad, I earnestly beg that you will express yourselves un mistakeably to that effect by return ing a Democratic majority to both the senate and house of representatives. "I am your servant and will accept your judgment without cavil, but my power to administer the great trust assigned me by the constitution would be seriously impoired should your judgment be adverse and I must frankly tell you so because so many critical issues depend upon your ver dict. No scruple of taste must in grim times like these be allowed to stand in the way of speaking the plain truth. "I have no thought of suggesting that any political party is paramount in matters of patriotism. I feel too deeply the sacrifices which have been made in this war by all of our citizens, irrespective of party affiliations, to harbor such an idea. I mean only that the difficulties and delicacies of our present task are of a sort that makes it imperatively necessary that the nation should give its undivided support to the government under a un ified leadership and that a Republican congress would divide the leadership. "The leaders of the minority in the present congress have unquestionably been pro-war, but they have been anti administrative. At almost every turn since we entered the war they have sought to take the choice of policy and the conduct of the war out of my hands and put it under the control of instrumentalities of their own choos ing. "This is no time for divided council or for divided leadership. Unity of command is as necessary now in civil action as it is upon the field of bat tle. If the control of the house and the senate should be taken away from the party now in power an opposing majority could assume control of leg islation and oblige all action to be taken amidst contest and obstruction. "The return of a Republican major ity to either hotfse of the congress would moreover be interpreted on the other side of the water as a repudia tion of my leadership. Spokesmen of the Republican party are urging you to elect a Republican congress in or der to back up and support the pres ident, but even if they should in this impose upon some credulous voters on this side of the water they wold im pose on no one on the other side. It is well understood there as well as here that the Republican leaders desire not so much to support the president as to control him. "The peoples of the Allied countries with whom we are associated against Germany are quite familiar with the significance of elections. They would find it very difficult to believe that the voters of the United States had chos en to support their president by elect ing to the congress a majority con trolled by those who are in fact not in sympathy with the attitude and ac tion of the administration. "I need not tell -you, my fellow countrymen, that I am asking your support, not for my own sake, but for the sake of the nation itself in order' that its inward unity of purpose may 'Tuf [^"rv A be evident to-all the world. In ordi nary timet I would not feel at liberty to make auch an appeal to you. In ordinary times divided counsels can be endured without permanent hurt to the country. But tbeae are not ordi nary time*. "|f these criticaJ days it is your wish to auvtain me with undivided misunderstand either here at home or among our aaaociatea on the other aid* of the ae*. I aubmit my difficulties and ifey hope* to you.' '•wlOODROW WILSON." Lieut. Wa Mulroy in the Thick of the Fighting. Lieut. Wm. Mulroy has written an intensely interesting letter to his brother, M. F. Mulroy, manager of the Russell-Miller Milling Co., of thia city. Every word of it ia worth pub lishing, but the Lieutenant aaked that publication of it not be made. We cannot refrain, however, from men tioning an incident in connection with the Lieutenant's going over the top. He has been in the fighting for some time and he is no doubt proving to the Huns that he is a Tegular fighting Irish-American. The company had gone over the top and "met with a fairly warm reception at Hun hands. Lieut. Mulroy received a blow on his steel hat that stunned him for a bit, but kept on. They later were advanc ing thru the woods, apparently not meeting with a great deal of resist ance, when they encountered some machine gun nests. The bullets spat tered around them fast and furious,, and the Lieutenant states that they were whizzing all around him. To make matters more interesting, a Hun airplane came down low and fired a volley of machine gun shots at our boys. The Americans were victorious in this battle, taking their objective. The Kaiser's Awakening. "Dad" Lewis of White Fish, Mont., who spends a great deal of his time trapping, has found time to write an effusion on the Kaiser which he sends to the Independent. Dad heads it "Awakening From a Wonderful Dream." It reads as follows: Only five years ago, the Kaiser had a wonderful dream. O, says he, we can take France and London, too. But little Belgium, she rose up and said, "You can't cross here," and they fought like heroes, but they didn't have the size. So then we took a slice of France, and we feasted on their women and their wine, but now we are going back to the Rhine. For since Uncle Sam has sent his Yankee boys, we have changed our mind. We're going to bid farewell to France, to Belgium and wine, for we are go ing back to Germany to drink water from the Rhine." WANTED TO EXCHANGE.

YOU WANT The Republican legislative candidates whose names appeal" below were fairly and honestly nominated at the primary election in June, in the 29th Leg islative District. That ticket was placed in the field by a large meeting of Ward county farmers who were anti-socialist and were not deceived by the \Townley-LeSueur bonding scheme to burden the state with the "sky-is the lim it" everlasting excessive and possibly confiscatory taxation. Taxes are high enough now and the Republican nominees are pledged to attempt to reduce rather than to increase them. However, Banker Walton, the treasurer of the Grant Youmans' financial institutions, one of the unsuccessful candidates at the primary election did not know how to take defeat gracefully and shouting fraud he contested the elec tion. His contest was dismissed in District Court and he appealed to the Su preme Court and even there, where he expected to get relief, according to his own ideas of fair dealing with his fellowmen he is thrown out of Court. But he is still with us as a candidate, conrary to the plain intent and purpose of the primary election law. Most states have special provisions preventing de feated candidates from running for office forever, but there is no such statute in North Dakota, the framers of .the law, no doubt, thinking it unnecessary and leaving it to the fairness of the individual. Accordingly, before voting, ask yourself these two questions: (1) Why should Banker Walton be a candidate after being fairly defeated at the primaries?• (2) Why does Banker Walton want to get into the legislature so badly?
