The dowager Empress of China rules 400,000,000 of people and yet there are some people in this county who are against a compe tent lady holding the paltry office of superintendent of schools. The demo-pop military scandal died out as quick as it was born, the Halland scandal is doing the same thing. Verily it is hard for the opposition to work up an issue with any degree of either certainty or enthusiasm. After a great deal of fussing around the French cabinet has finally voted to grant Dreyfus a new trial—something that should have been done long ago. The decision of the cabinet is received with great enthusiasm by the common people, while the pro fessional perjurers are tremb ling in their boots and some of them are committing suicide. We suggest that Dreyfus be tried next time in the United States where he can get a fair trial The republican legislative con vention meets at Sherbrooke next Monday, (^cfcober 3d. At that time will be nominated three men, a senator and two repre sentatives, who will undoubtedly have a vote on the successor of Senator Roach, because we be lieve the men nominated next Monday will be elected in November. The people of this district—that is the republicans —favor the election of Hon. M. N, Johnson to the United States senate, and the Courier would like to see the nominees of that convention pledged to his sup port if elected. V-'V- V. ,H .rl'vilft ',. 1-.^ VJ The attention of our fusion friends is invited to Ignatius Donnelly's speech which appears in last Saturday's Minneapolis Tribune. Mr. Donnelly was de livering his opening address as a candidate for vic-epresident on the populist ticket and he very em phatically told the people where the blame for the demonetization of silver lay. Read it. The populist legislative con vention met at Sherbrooke last Saturday and nominated Mr. E. D. Wallace, of Steele county, for senator. Mr. Wallace is a man of many good qualities and would make a good senator—if he was on the right ticket. For the house, Frithof Greenland, of the Sentinel, and John Hogenson, of the Sentinel, were nominated. Foster county, Kidder county Eddy county, Cass county, Ram sey county have lady superin tendents of schools, all first-class officials. Griggs county has a lady nominated for that position with a good show of being elected, and now the Nelson County Ob server is whooping it up for a lady for that county. The ladies are entitled to a place on the ticket. They help pay the taxes and ought to get the only office the law will allow them by way cf recompense. President McKinley has finally got his investigation committee which is made up of the following geutlemen: Maj. Gen. Dodge, Maj. Gen. McCook, Brig. Gen. Wilson, Maj. Mills, Charley Den by, Gen. Beaver, Urban Wood bury, Capt Howell, Col, Sexton. This committee has been select ed from different sections of the country and is made upof thorough ly competent and reliable men. The president is determined to probe to the bottom and to find out just where all this blame in army affairs lies. The Chicago Record, a very independent paper, has the fol lowing to say: "In the midst of all the worry about camps and soldiers, Presi dent McKinley has the satisfac tion of knowing that he has con ducted a grand and successful war, and that all the socalled mistakes are mere motes in the sunbeam of achievement which shall illuminate through future years a glorious page in the world's history. Every Ameri can knows this, is proud of it, and will get prouder as time passes. Mr. Tufte last week very smoothly tried to convey in his article in the Sentinel the im pression that Mr. Carleton was not a tax-payer and that the amount of taxes as charged in his article—fifty-six dollars were all that Mr. CarletOn had been assessed. If the learned gentle man had taken the trouble to look up the records in the county treasurer's office he would find that the taxes on Mr. Carleton's town property have been paid every year and that Mr. Carle ton has paid heavy taxes every year up to last year on his farm northwest of town—the east half of east half of Sec. 4-146-59, Mr. Carleton does not deny ow ing the $56 as charged and if Mr Tufte depends on the votes of people who have paid their taxes in full for an election he will cornea long way from getting the required number of votes. The imported attorney from Minnesota is smooth. He we put on our war paint and feathers andexecutedawar dance, etc. Very true, old man. When we do put on our paint and feathers, etc.. and do a little war dancing, we can keep our equi librium in so doing—something that can't always be said of Mr. Tufte. VOL. 16 No. 38. COOPERSTOWN, GRIGGS COUNTY, N. D.. THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 39, 1898. The Grand Forks Plaindealer says that the elections in Maine and.Vermont demonstrates the fact that the republican party's continuous performance of fool ing the people will be closed after the November elections. Editor Carruth must have penned those lines some time ago. Vermont and Maine show a republican in crease in vote in off years. While the Plaindealer was telling how the people are being fooled we notice that he steered clear of the returns from Oregon. The recent conventions in Colorado, Montana, Washington, Idaho—a quartet of silver states—demon strates that they were fooled two years ago IE the Plaindealer will keen his eye on those states this fall he will see that the peo ple in those states cannot be fooled all the time—even if they were two years ago. Chicago Record: .Fusion is fast causing the People's party to lose its identity. Dissension and hopelessness of achieving results through the party organiz tiou are rapidly .bringing about the disruption of the remnant that professes to keep in the middle of the road, In states where the populists are strong their party is merged with an other, which means that it is be ginning to disappear. Fusion is simply a process whereby the younger organization is swal lowed up by the older. In states where the populists are few their organizations are going to pieces because of weakness. In 1900 the people's party will be little more than a name, and after that the organization will cease to be heard of as a factor in American politics. The small aggregation of devoted populists who met in Cincinnati last week for the ex press purpose of saving their party from destruction merely emphasized the fact that it has already gone to pieces. The party that names its candidates two years and more ahead of time is not gathering strength for the contest, but is^dissipating its already scattering energies. The people will stand with Secretary Gage in his fight against the speculators to pre vent them from monopolizing the war bonds which were prima rially issued for and expected to be taken up by the people. The bankers and brokers, when they learned that the administration in tended the bonds for distribution among the people and not to the capitalists and speculators, un dertook to circumvent the treas ury officials by employing no taries to procure them bogus and fictitious subscriptions, in all amounting to the enormous sum of ten million dollars, and filed powers of attorney and certified checks to pay for the bonds with trust companies and through them attempted to make their purchases. Some of the persons whose names are submitted as applicants for bonds are long since dead, while others never existed. The Secretary of the Treasury has decided that these speculators cannot have the bonds thus applied for, and they haveemployed ex-Secretary Car lisle as their counsel and are pre paring to resist the decision of Secretary Gage. It was the in tention when these bonds were issued that the common people should have an opportunity to in vest to as great an extent as their patriotism prompted and their savings would allow. They responded nobly, subscribed liberally, and should be defended in their right to hold the securl ties.—Sanborn Enterprise.
