POOR POLITICS. ill Very few state papers but condemn, the turning down of Mr. Spalding at the state convention last week. Of those who do not openly and strongly disap prove, there are less than a dozen who defend the action. The act is laid at the door of the "bosses." We presume this is true in the probability that it could not have been done -without -their acquiesc ence, but we do hot believe they could have done it without some pretty heavy ^backing that has not as yet co$ie clearly to the surface. The prime cause of Mr. Spalding's defeat probably came from Fargo. There are two factions there who fight bitterly, one of which Ha? gart is the principal and Kennedy of the vother. Mr. Sliding could not pleas^or act with both these. From the way the platform reads it looks very much as if Mr. Hansbrough was in the convention. The selection of Mr. Gronna is also vefy probable to\ be ^plcwisiog to Mr. H. Whether Mr. H* prefers Mr. Gronna to Mr. Spalding is probaMy not on record. The turning.down^t Mr. S. undv.-r the circumstances, was poor politics. The tact is thjtt until the time, of the conven tion, everybikly supposed that Mr. S. would be nominated without opposition. It Mr. Gronna or any one dse hiid *)een junsed previous to the pafov^ntiom there co^ld and would have'^nsome .public expression. As it is, jt looks to the Jw6|leu$8 though Mr. Spalding has ^not had fair play,—and the people like fair be^ much better dib bavet nomuuited :Mr*x :conveimo^rswid It could bave^robably been done by the game ihfluencioi that did the yyork at the .,, ,W I I I than convention methods. The trouble is that each have their faults. This is one of the conveution ways. Mr. Gronna is a good man and will undoubtedly be elected, but that will not be because of the method of his select* ion. The Grand Forks Herald in a column article says that there is a suggestion that Mr. Spalding shall run on an inde pendent ticket This we believe would be just as much if not more an error by Mr. S. and his friends. -It isn't the right way. Mr. S. was turned down as abrupt* ly once before this—but he-took the right way and came out oh top again. Revolutionary and arbritary methods are not relished by the people—either way. If there were no one else concern' ed but Mr. Gronna and his friends, and Mr. Spalding and his friends, then the fight might best be settled in that way. But an independent ticket would in volve the interests of many other candi dates, from the president downwards^. We present this week a supplement containing a detailed statement of the finances of the county. It is made very clearly and the prdinary man and tax payer can find out from it whrce the money goes—he already knows from whence it comes. But the county treas urer and auditor therein accout^ lor ev ery dollar, and you csn see for yourself how much is spent for and by the county for the poor, for the county officers, for roads and bridges, etc. You can also see how much your township treasurer has drawn frotn the county treasurer and the account with your school district is also there. It is a good thing for the tax payer to look over and study a little. Perhaps the totals in some cases may surprise you. For instance, the casual reader of the "proceedings" would guess that the bills tor the county poor were about half the bills passed, but it is little less than one-tenth of the total county expenditure. 96,641. It costs in round numbers $26,000 to pay the "servants of the country, from which they get credit tor about $6,000 in tees collected tor the county. The total expensfc ac count of the county, outside. of roads and bridges, is about 952,000. The state treasurei has drawn from this county during the year, from funds raised by taxation for the support of the state gov ernment and institutions, ~bver 929,000. That is, we have to pay nearly half as much to run the state as we do to run our own county—which seeins a large proportion.: ••••••••••••••••••••••••a* County News.

John Lewis who skipped from Grafton after being put under injunction for pig ging, afterwards came back to Grafton and was rearrested and last week Judge Kneeshaw sentencsd him to six months in the county jail and to pay a fine of 9700 which if iKt paid will keep him in jail for three months longer. Fred Ganssle of St. Thomas bought a section of land near there for 921,000. In reference to this purchase the Times re marks that Mr. G. came to this county with, a thousand dollars that he now owns twenty-five quarter sections valued at 985,000 without the improvement^. Mr. G. has followed farming and made all his money in that way. He came to the county in 1881. The St. Thomas council by ordinance only permits cement sidewalks in the business portion of the city. The Times remarks however that much of the ce ment sidewalk already laid there is rath' er bum and not lasting well. It looks like a simple piece of work to mix up some cement and sand with water and make concrete bnt lots of amatuers make failures oftener than good solid concrete. St. Thomas had afield day last week, Bowesmont beat Drayton at base ball to 3 Cavalier beat Crystal 15 to 14, and Bowesmont beat Cavalier 10 to 4.

How would it do for the Bosemont players to comD the hair'of those Milton tellows that are so anxious to beat something in this county. The democrats have made calls for a judicial convention to be held at Graiton on Aug, 12th, and county convention to be held at Bathgate on Aug. 11th, to elect delegates to the Grafton conven ion. The committee recommend the holding of caucuses on Wednesday Aug. 10th. At the Grafton convention Pem bina ounty has 24 delegates, Cavalier 23 and Walsh 33. Pembina has three delegates to the Bathgate convention. Hamilton Fair had good weather and attendance. The exhibits were veiy ex cellent in some classes while other clas ses were rather meager. Holding the fair so early in the season practically rules out moat field and garden exhibits except of the early or immature. Tne sports were good and perfect order was maintained. No gambling or other ob jectionable features were allowed. The Independent thinks the fair should be run four days next year. A German boy, fourteen years of age by the name of Hiebert, whose parents reside near Gretna, was drowned in the Pembina River just west of the railroad Bridge last Sunday afternoon. In com pany with another lad he went in b» thing and, being unable to swim, got beyond his depth.
