SECONDARY EFFECTS OF THE QUAKE
A letter from our friend Jv D. Wal
1 ace now of Long Beach, Cal. seeks to
impress us with the fact that the Los
Angeles coutry is 400 miles from San
Francisco and that the earthquake did
not affect them at all seriously. He also
encloses a clipping from a local paper
emphasizing the same lact.
Naturally the people of that section
whose prosperity depends so largely
on tourist travel /eel that the result of.
the late shaking up on the coast will be
injnrious and that people will hesitate
before they travel that way.
As to actual danger it is probably
quite true that there is no serious risk in
the Los Angeles section. It is also
equally true, of the San Francisco region.
The late disturbance was the only one
known in history that seriously affected
buildings there and it maybe hundreds
of years before any so serious will occur
But the fact that the shocks of earth
quakes are frequent on the Pacific coast
*$'f. even though slight, will now be. remem
bered in the light of the San Francisco
calamity for years
oome. As long as
quake did no damage people did not
..•/ mind them much, though they were
more or less a drawback, but now, even
the slightest tremor will be exaggerated
by those who experience the shock .by
just that much.

Last Sunday's Herald seriously tried to
convince its readers that Messrs. Spal
ding, Winship, Devine, Helgeson, John
son, et. al. were never apart of wnat the
Herald calls "the machine." It admits
however, that these all have held offices
and worked with the men it says com
pose the machine. Every one of these
gentlemen who now call themselves "in
surgents," not only have held office un
der that same "machine" but were wil
ling to go on indefinitely in the same
way, but because they wen let out, are
now "insurgents." That is the whole
story. There is nothing wrong about
these men trying to seize the reins,except
this misrepresentation and hypocritical
humbug that they are so much better
than these men they are trying to dis
place. Whatever the "gang" has done,
the history of this state since its incep
tion, will show that all those leading in
surgents were right in it until dropped
from official positions.
And still Ihey come. George Road
house of Neche is the next one to "shy
his castor" in the political ring. His
card as candidate for the Republican
nomination for sheriff is published in this
issue. Mr. Roadhouse is one of the old
timers of the county, and is well and fav
orably known by a large circle of friends
all over the county. While this is the
first time that he appears as a candidate,
his name has been often mentioned in
previous campaigns as a suitable person
for the office to which he now aspires.
The face between him and Mr. Wilson
of Cavalier will doubtless be close
enough to be interesting. So far this is
the only contest in sight before the Re
The county seat removal question, ac
cording to the Cavalier Chronicle, which
is doubtless well advised, is dead for the
present election. We are certain that a
big majority of the people of the county
will be glad to hear it, and this without
reference as to the right or wrong place
for the county seat. We are sure all
prospective candidates are glad that issue
will not interfere with their canvas.
Pembina was not worried over the re
sults, but county seat fights are expen
