WILSON ASKS U. S. TO
VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS
Says Republican Majority Would Be
Wrongly Interpreted in
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
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
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
"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
"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
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

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.'
Lieut. Wa Mulroy in the Thick of the
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."

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?
