There are thousands of voters in North Dakota, who drink oc casionally, and some who'drink habitual ly, whose personal habits have nothing to do with their opinion on the general subject, and occasionally one finds a man who never drinks intoxicating liquor who favors high license. The reason is simple. These men look at the general, good of the commun ity rather than their personal appetites. Some, who drink too much, however, will vote prohibition to remove tempta tion from themselves, others card so •little forit that they are willing to go without for the sake of others, and some are satisfied to send away for what they want and drink at home, while all prefer that open saloons be cilosed. Perhaps the greatest result of the clos ing of the saloon in North Dakota is in the moderate drinking class. Because blind pigs are not respectable, because they are not easy, of access, because they are not a pleasant social resort and be cause of the: natural respect for law thousands of men who' "Were moderate but habitual "drinkers, are Sow but occasional drinkers. ..Of- These men do not care to patronize blind pigs, do not care enough for liquor to keep it itt tlieir cellars,! or prefer 'hot because of tfopir families, and npw only. drink, on the comparative rare "occasion, that they find it at the house or in the bands of a friend, or when away in cities where saloons arfe' 6pen' And in their class, wip believe'fr/om o|ur persona! acqwuritance we can place two-thirds, at HArid yet this' class of raeij—the moder ate drinker—are the. flass wjiich make t? •open saloons respectable and remuner ative.

They mostly drink alone and fill their glasses. The other clas^the moderate drinker, rarely drink iilone. They drinlf with their friends, and their friends return the social comp liment, and it takes several dimes in stead of one to pay the bill/'!,,. Blind pigs are open to a greater or less extent in North Dakota—but because they are law breakers—they miss that part of the trade which pays the saloon man the .most money and furnish the most respectable part in both numbers and character of his customers, and the most of this class of men faaor pro hibition. Amongst the common people, regard less of politics, the question arises, has capital a perfect right to .combine, or merge, to an unlimited extent, without conceeding equal privileges to labor. The efforts of President Roosevelt and of Governor Odell, of New York, recent^ ly made, tending towards conciliator}) measures, in reference to the coal troubles, which are national, meets with the general and hearty approval of all. The very favorable weather during the past three weeks has enabled farmers, all over this country, to complete their threshing. Late grain, as a rule, has yielded very lightly, but flax has yielded fully as well as expected, running from 12 to 15 bushels per acre. Plowing as a rule, is very much behind, and much will be left undone until spring, which will result in a good deal of late crop another season. Coal, or the scarcity of antracite coal, is the'principal theme as the cold weath er approaches, but in this state, where wood is reasonably cheap, and soft coal, is plentiful, no hardship or suffering, is anticipated, other than the necessity of procuring stoves to take the place ol those hitherto in use. Two cases have been before the Board of Insanity Commission, this week, one from Carlisle and one from Lodema. These, and similar cases, call forth the sympathy of the community^ even more than death would, under .ordinary cir cumstances. OUR CANDIDATES. A List of Candidates and Where They Are From, We present to the voters of Pembina county, this week, a short introduction to the nominees for county offices, on the Republican ticket. In many instan ces the candidates are among the pion eers of the county and are known- to all interested parties. At the convention due deliberation was taken to make up the ticket, fliid it took considerable persuasion for some of the nominees to consent to run, as they were not looking tor office, but came to the convention to see that good men were placed on the ticket. The remuneration for a county office now is not as lucrative as it used to be, and a person holding office earns his salary. Next week we wijl give a synopsis of the legislative tickets. For treasurer, W.A. Murphy, of Neche is the nominee. It took considerable persuasion to make Mr. Murphy accept the nomination, and it was' a big sacri fice-on his part to do so, as his extensive interests at home requires him there. But however busy at home Mr. Murphy will personally look after the funds of the county if elected.1] ^.Alex. Murphy has been a resident of Neche since a mere boy, and has accumulated a hand* some fortune through strict attention to business and faking care of what he made. Such a man will look after the affairs ol the county witli equal precau tion. Mr. Murphy was chairman of the republican county central committee the last two years, and only resigned a short time ago to accept the place on' the county ticket. His connection with politics has widened his acquaintance, and he will get a good vote: throughout the county, and in the northern part he will run way ahead ot his ticket Vote for Murphy for county "treiSilreh-?'f,r 1 •. 4' 'i lj-r *f r.r, If there is an office in the court house •whjgre itnah wants to be popted on the requirements of that office it fat that erf' Vjriity l*"*1 preparing of the books for the assessors for the levying of taxes, and collecting the same, besides numerous other rou tine work tfiat is important and require experience. For this office tlie Republi cans placed in nomination Swain Thor waldson, the present deputy auditor, who "has served four years under Auditor Williams, and who knows the. details of that office as a scholar knows his multi plication table. Mr. Thorwaldson, is a resident of Thingvalla township, and be longs to that hardy race that located in the western part of this county in pion eer days. Mr. Thorwaldson is the onlv Icelander on the Republican county ticket. Vote for Swain Thorwaldson for county auditor. Hon. J. D. Wallace, the Republican nominee for county judge needs no in troduction to the electors of this county. He ran ahead of his ticket two years ago, in most of the precincts, and came ^irough the campaign.with a good ma jority. Mr. Waliace has served two years as judge and his strict attention to the duties of the office, and sound judg ment in handling important cases, to the satisfaction of all parties interested, has made him more friends than ever. For county judge requires a man of executive ability. Through that office the interests of widows and orphans are dealt with, and there is considerable latitude tor squandering the support of the unpro tected. A vote for J. D. Wallace is a vote cast for the right mail. John F. Gill is the Republican nom inee for register of deeds, Mr. Gill has represented Elora township at every as sessor's meeting as far back as we can remember, and has been town clerk equally as long. This means a good deal when a staunch Republican like Mr. Gill is repeatedly elected to office in one of the strongest Democratic town ships in the county. Mr. Gill is a gentle man and a scholar and well qualified for the position he is nominated to. He may not be personally as well acquainted with the voters of the county as some of the other candidates, but he has warm friends in every township in the assess ors he has been associated with. Vote tor John F. Gill for register of deeds and you will make no mistake. Chas. Atkinson, the nominee for sheriff on the Republican ticket, is one of our best known candidates on either ticket, who has never sought for political hon ors before. Mr. Atkinson is favorably known in all parts of the county as an honest and upright man. His livestock business has been steadily growing through hard work and honest dealings He is fully competent to perform the dU' ties of sheriff, and will do it without fear or prejudice. See that your ballot is marked for Charles Atkinson for sheriff. Attorney H. G. Vick, of St. Thomas is the nominee for states attorney. He has practiced law in this county^several years, and is of unquestionable character and ability. He had the unanimous support at the convention of all the delegates, and is popular all over the county. Mr. Vick is one of the best orators in the Red River Valley and is fearless and de cisive in action. If elected he will see that his duties are executed as they should be. A vote for H. G. Vick is a vote for the enforcement of all laws on our statute books. A. L. Airth returns to the office of clerk of the district court without opposi tion, which is a fitting reward for one who has attended to his duties as Mr. Airth has. 1 pr ,G. F. Erskine, of Hamilton is the Republican nominee for coronor. Mr. Erskine is the present coronorof Pembi ijaj cfounty and is filling the office credit* ably, and there is no need of a, change. Hfc is' cdmpeteftt hi all details and promptly responds when lie .is. called, w^en rt would serve his personal inter* ests.beitcirtp stay ^t, home.' Vote for Dr. Erskine. •. IP. H.

They are men qualified and have had experience in their own townships with just such duties as falls upon the county commis sioners. They both should be elected. Stephen Eyolfson has been placed on the ticket by the democrats of the second district to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of John Johnson. We un derstand no action has been taken to fill the vacancies in the other cases. NOTICE OF ELLECTION.
