larly for the use of mugwumps of both

writing. It is a great list, particularly the
names under "For Supreme Judges of

Hon. John D. Wallace has thV. advant
age of his opponent for the office of
county Judge in the fact that he is one of
the first settlers ol the county and has
been more or less in public life ever since
that time. He is therefore well known
to all the voters as a man of honesty,
ability and business experience, all of
which are essential qualifications for' the
office tofr wfafch he aspires.
Paul Williams, county auditor, came in
from a canvassing trip on Wednesday
evening and reports a successful trip
notwithstanding bad roads and weather,
and that everything looks bright for re
publican success all along the line. Mr.
Williams is making as thorough canvas
as his official duties will allow and is
very popular, especially in the western
part of the county. At his election two
years ago he got all the votes in his own
township except one—and it is said that
was his own.
Messrs. Scott & Johnson, lawyers, is
the name of the new firm that will en
gage in business at this place. They
have rented the front part of the build
ing formerly occupied by Mr. Dunbar as
a bakery, and will have same fitted up in
good shape. The firm comes here from
Drayton, N. D., where they practiced
law during the past year. Mr. Johnson,
the junior member of the firm, is well
and favorably known in this vicinity,
having clerked for Dure & Son about
five years ago. We wish the new firm
success.—Hallock News.
From San Francisco to Cherubusco
and Cherubusco to Montreal, Montreal

and so forth,is quite a distance, but when
you can go that distance for 25 cents and
stop off and eat sandwiches and coffee
and stop at another place and eat ice
cream and cake, you're doing pretty
well aren't you? And if you don't like
the scenery or the refreshments you will
be returned home free. At the residence
of Charles Full, Friday evening, Oct
19th, you'll get all this and more.
The biggest attraction of the. season
will be Lloyd & Gay's mammoth scenic
production of that powerful military
drama "A Celebrated Case." The plot
of the story is a unique and most inter
esting one, while the presentation by the
Lloyd & Gay Company is nothing short
of a perfectly correct and artistic one.
The scenery used is all special, the cos
tuming historically correct while the
company is one carefully selected and of
ability. The price for this occasion will
be 25, 50 and 75 cents. Get your seats

all about the Episcopal carnival concert
of the previous week, which for its unique
features was well worthy the space of an
item. The program consisted of a series
of tableau-like scenes, one br -two
actors in each. The actors, were usually
dressed in fancy or historic costumes,
and masked, and sang, recited, whistled,
danced or played some instrument for a
short time and retired. The audience
held cards and guessed the identity of
the actors. Miss Alice Thompson was
awarded the prize, she being the lucky
one of the seven who guessed all correct
ly. Elegant refreshments were served
afterwards and the proceeds were about
$27 for the benefit of the church.
We are pleased to note the nomination
of our old friend, Geo. Martin," of St.
Thomas, as the candidate for superin
tendent of schools on the republican
ticket of Pembina county. We knew Mr.
Martin when he was superintendent of
Towner county and principal of the Can
do schools, and we know from observa
tion that his work was of a high class
then. His influence in state educational
matters has always been pronounced,
and his principalship of the St. Thomas
schools has added to his reputation as an
educator. Pembina county will have a

the havoc wrought by the storm is grow

of the disaster will remain noticeable to
the eye for years to come and will never

through the terrible ordeal.—Grand

The Republican Rally.
The republican rally at Kittson Hall
on Tuesday evening was a grand success
in every way. The Pembina Cornet
Band kindly consented to call thr people

The attendance was peetiliar, in that
ladies formed about as large a propor

any other sort of entertainment, while

of the Spanish war, and to keep this
country moving onward in the path pf
Mr. Robert A. Kelly of New York was
the next speaker and in manner and
style is considerable of a contrast to his
predecessor. Mr. Kelly was formerly a
democrat, a member of the Tammany
Society of New York, and he discussed
the political issues largely from the stand
point of a gold democrat, which however
he claims to be equivalent to being a re
publican at this election. Mr. Kelly is
lively, entertaining and kept the atten
