This Iran election year and enough
candidates have beeo sprung on the
public for the different prominent
position* already to fill the ticket 4en
times over. Thera is liable to be
gome fan in the next republican^ con
vention and some surprises may be
looked for. lf:
Andrew Carnegie's
in his
iatest interview in London, that '"if
Great ffriuin 'continues her costly
wars for shadowy ascendancy in dis
tant parts, and the United States de
velops her industrial army, Great
Britain will bave the shadow and the
United States the substnace," is one
of the best things he bas said.
After twenty-one years of prohibi
tion in Kansas Gov. Stanley fcays:
•'Prohibition in Kansas b»ML been
market! by very benellclal results,
and 't Is apparent to anyone who will
travel through Kansas and through
any of the license states that may be
selected and note the difference in
the types of vouug uieu in the two
"There are thousands of young men
—in Kansas who never ssiar a saloon
and will avoid It, if for no other rea
son ihxn because it is undei the ban

"Theru are tbousauds of men who
would probably pAtrouizvtbo saloon
if sanctioned by the law and con
ducted with state approval, who avoid
it aud will avoid it as long as the law
brauds it as an Ishmaelite among'the
legitimate enterprise of the com
niuuity." 'f?
The AVells Count News comments
on the disbarmeut of States Attorney
Vtm as follows:
States Attorney Voss of Mandan
has been barred from practise by the
supreme court for a period of nine
months. The charges against Voss.
were that he failed to prosecute viola
tors of the prohibition law and that
he gambled in gambling places ami
brought no action against them. A
few more disbarment proceedings in
North Dakota.might have a purifying
effect, as there are too many lawyers
in this state who lack a sense of mor
ality when it cornea to many features
in their practices. The title and func
tion of attorney is literally & sacred
creation of the people: every act of a
lawyer Is encompassed by an oath,
and limited by the strictest bounds of
propriety. He lo an officer -of the
court, and his right to practice lie* ir
an honorable upright discharge of
duties devolved upon him. It Is these
restrictions which have given honor
respect and confidence to the fra
ternity, and he who having assumed
these responsibilities so far forgets
himself as to overstep the bounds to
which he has voluntarily subjected
himself should be stripjjgd of ^at
which' he hath.",v
1~:& The remarks are very pertiment and
the lesson administered to Voss should
warn other officials that they .must
obey the law or get a dose of the same
^kind of medicine,

the congratulations of the Courier for
the troubles he has taken upon him
self In getting into the newspaper
business. We wish Bro. Lowden
"every success. Here is his opening
•hotto the public: It is an old es
tablished custom that whenever a per
son starts out upon the broad road of
journalism that he shall give to the
public and patrons a well defined pol
icy stating as concise as possible his
Views upon the great questions of th
fjday, such as, first, his political policy
2nd his religious belief 3rd his views
in regard to the Prohibition ques
tion. I can say that I do not pro
pose to use the paper as a cudgel
Srap my opponents over, the head or
•s&£to take advantage in any way.
Although I have a strong political
belief yet I shall continue the paper
on an Independent basis,. As to my
'^religious belief the church of what
&r%-f?"tever denomination and jthe press
should have a common object and that
ysfW' is the welfare of the community—they
^should go hand in hand as far as
"hV'j possible. And as for my views upOn
"tT the Prohibition question they are well
knowu by a large majority of the peo
pie here, as I have lived here thirteen
}, years: believe that the Prohibition
law should be enforced to the letter.
If people, knowing the law, will vio
late the same for a little paltry^ga I

The Courier bus been asked sever
al times recently wliy our celebration
committee does not arrange for a
speaker of recognized ability and
prominence for a 4tli of July oration.
The suggestion is thrown out that it
is hardly fair to throw all the pro
gram into sports as I here are hun
dreds-of people who wouid enjoy heal

of our nation's greatest day. The
Courier is inclined to agree with this
if a speaker can be secured who
will give us an address of enough
interest to get the crowd together.

His ire was aroused by the report
