To the Voters of the Second
Having received many kind
assurances that my ambition would
be regarded with favor, I desire to
announce that I am a candidate
for the Republican nomination for
the office of District Judge of the
Second Judicial District,
Owing to the character of the
office, the recency of my knowledge
that Judge Morgan would be a
candidate for a*state nomination,
and the extent of the district, a
personal canvass for the nomination
is out of the question, I must rely
upon this means of making my
wishes known generally to the
people of the district.
I therefore urgently request all
who favor me for the^ high honor
sought, to use their influence in
securing delegates favorable to my

The woolgrower, if he can spare
time from his profitable work just
now, ought to scan the following
comparative summary of the
prices of sheep for years past.
The Morrill tariff for maiiy years
held the average price of sheep
between $2.09 and $2.55, these
figures representing the highest
and lowest figures for which they
sold. The Morrill tariff was a Re
publican protective measure. The
tariff-reform tariff of 1883 to 1890
sunk prices to a minimum of $1.91
and a maximum of $2.27. The
McKinley protective tariff of 1890
to 1893 brought prices back to
$2.49 and $2.66. Then the free
trade era of Clevelandism brought
sheep prices down to $1.58 and
$1.92. Now the Dingley law is in
operation and has brought the
average up to the highest ever
known in this country, namely
The Republican party has
always been the .party of liberty.
Emancipation was its first great
work, the preservation of the
Union, that the whole nation
might be free, was its next task.
The emancipation of American la
bor from tramp lodging houses,
soup kitchens and idleness was
the beneficent task of the same
party under the matchless leader
ship of William McKinley. The
freedom of Cuba and Porto Rico
from the most accursed govern
ment that ever blasted a fair land
was its next great task, and the
moulding of the civil life of these
long-oppressed people to harmon
ize with the best traditions of
Anglo-Saxon liberty is the great
party's next task, which it assumes
as a solemn duty that can not with
honor be evaded, neglected or
Democratic papers are trying to
stir up discontent among farmers
because of an advance in the price
of nails. As a matter of fact, it
has not kept pace with the gain in
the price of steel billets, from
which they are made. Since 1898,
nails have advanced from $1.30 to
$2.45 in carload lots at Pittsburg,
This is a 90 per pent increase
Steel billets have advanced, with
in the same time, from $14.75 to
$32, an increase of 120 per cent.
This is only one thing that the
farmer buys that costs him more
money, but he pays less for his
coffee, sugar and rice- Qn the
other hand, he gets more money
for his wool, sheep, cows, mules,
hogs, and other farm products.
The idiotic howl of Democrats
over the Porto Rican tariff is
amusing. When a man adopts a
child into his family he does not
allow it the range of his house
from the cellar to the garret, in
eluding the pantry and money
bank. He teaches the child how
to adapt himself to his new sur
rounding and. leads him step by
step to a condition where family
affection And family pride identi
fies him as a full fledged member
of the family. So with Porto
Rico. Teach her the American
patriotism and pride, bring her to
love American institutions, train
her in American methods and then
give her full American rights and
privileges. The Porto Rican
tariff is a step in the right direc
"Expansion" and "protection"
are good rallying words. Ex
pansion of the farmer's market,
protection for his products ex
pansion for the laboring man's
wages, protection to the man who
pays them protection of oppor
tunites for labor by expansion of
industries, protection of homes by
protection of right to earn good
wages expansion of markets, pro
tection of marketers expansion of
Uncle Sam's territory, protection
of liberty expansion of currency,
protection of values: expansion of
credits, protection of investments
expansion of knowledge, protection
of instruction. All this is good
Republican doctrine and will be
endorsed by the people in No
Democratic jabberyowlers are
not well up on history. While
denouncing expansion they do not
know that in 1860 both Democratic
platforms, Douglass' and Bell's,
has this platform: Refcolved,
that the Democratic party is in
favor of the acquisition of the
island of Cuba on such terms as
will be honorable to ourselves and
just to Spain, at the earliest
practicable moment." They also
do not remember that Grant's
administration tried to get Cuba
by every lawful means. In the
light of these facts, who has
changed front on expansion?
The true shepherd when he
wants to remove his sheep across
a rocky, dangerous way neither
drives nor calls them. He gets
among his flock and guides and
gently moves them along with
him. When President McKinley
wishes to bring his people to a
higher plane of action he starts
them, goes with them himself and
they generally are with him when
the journey is over. Witness the
Dingley tariff, the Spanish war,
the Porto Rican tariff, the Philip
pine war, and the coming
One of the beneficial features
of the new banking law is the con
version of nearly 400 state and
private banks into national banks,
thus rendering a large proportion
of their notes absolutely safe.
With a safe, solid currency, first
class credit and automatic circula
tion, expanding or contracting at
need,, the stability of a country is
assured. The new law is a long
'step toward this ideal condition.
Even the fact that Dewey has
been hoodwinked by his foxy
brother-in-law into a bluff at the
Democratic nomination for the
presidency in order to beat Bryan
has not diminished national pride
in Dewey the fighter. Perhaps if
the use of his name gives the
death blow to Bryanism the nation
may have additional cause for
pride in him.
"More Cleveland Bonds" is the
headline on a short article in
"Finance." This does not refer to
any of the numerous bonds issued
to supply the deficiencies of rev
enue under the last Cleveland
Administration. It simply refers
to a small issue for improving and
beautifying the city of Cleveland,
which the people there feel that
they can afford to do during these
piping times of prosperity.

however that has resisted all inno

Stomach Bitters, which has many
imitators, but no equals as a cure
for stomach, liver and bowel
troubles. This peerless remedy
has been the standard medicine
of the American people for the
past fifty years. It is a wonderful
medicine for dyspepsia, indigestion

and nervousness. It also prevents
malaria fever and ague. It keeps
the stomach in good condition,
and the bowels regular. Try it,
and you will not be disappointed.

Commercial men and others, tell

"Walhalla Spring Water." The
fact that Walhalla is
drinking water to various towns
down the line is not news, at all,
as this has been the case for some
time, but that the hotels serve it
up to their guests, demonstrates
that the. commercial men consider
it a luxury and demand it. Hotels
using this water, however, are
entitled to fifty cents a day more
than formerly and should charge
accordingly. The water is so pure
that it gives a man an appetite
just to look at it through a glass.
Senator Hansbrough has se
cured the passage in the senate of
the bill throwing open to settlers
the Fort Buford abandoned, mili
tary reservation in North Dakota
and Montana. The proposed law
will open for entry thousands of
acres of desirable lands in North
Dakota. The bill is one of the
most important to the state that
has passed in a number of years,
and the result is due to the efforts
of Senator Hansbrough and Repre
sentative Spalding. The passage
of this bill is an important piece
of legislation for settlers along the
Missouri river and in the western
part of the state. The reservation
is the largest in the state, consist
ing of 500,000 acres. Much of the
land is valuable grazing land, some
of it heavily timbered and there
will be an excellent opportunity
for settlers to locate or for ranch
men to purchase hay and grazing
land. Under the bill actual set
tlers are given the preference in
making entries. The' bill will
without doubt be signed by the
president and the land will then
have to be surveyed. Senator
Hansbrough has introduced a bill
providing an appropriation of $11,
000 for the work of surrey.—Minot
