The Chronicle is in receipt of a
letter this week from Hon. P. D.
Norton, secretary of state and re
publican candidate for congress
from this district, which puts to
rest all the rumors going around
to the effect that he was supporting
the national democratic nominee
"foT tHesMtento" We are glad of the
opportunity of giving public utter
ance to Mr. Norton's statements on
this point and to be able to contra
dict the statements of those who
have claimed that the republican
nominee for congress from this dis
trict was a bolter. We believe in
political parties we believe in
party loyalty and believe that a
man who has been honored at the
hands of a party owes that party a
debt which he can only repay by
his loyalty to it. Mr. Norton was
honored by the republican party of
North Dakota when he was chosen
as the party's nominee for secre
tary of state again, when he was
elected by republican votes to that
office, and still again when he was
chosen by the republicans of this
district as their nominee for con
gress. It is only righ* that Mr.
Norton come out at this time and
declare himself for the republican
party. It shows that Mr. Norton
does not consider himself bigger
than the party but believes that
party success means more to the
people than individual political
success of any one man. He be
lieves, like all good republicans,
that party success means more to
the people and that more can be
accomplished with a republican
president and a republican congress
than can be accomplished with a
free trade democrat in the presi
dent's chair and a hostile congress
whose views are almost opposite to
the man who must approve the leg
islation which it passes. A repub
lican cannot consistently support a
democrat for president if he really
believes in the democratic policies,
free trade or reciprocity not only
with Canada but with all nations,
he is^t a republican but a demo
crat and should join that party.
Mr. Nbrton does not believe in
democratic national issues and
therefore believes that Mr. Taft's
election is more important to the
country than his likes or dislikes
for Mr. Taft, the individual. Mr.
Norton realizes that republican
more important than
Taft's success,
more important
success and far
more important than the ambition
of Roosevelt to
a third-term
•president. Republican success
means much to the country.
When men like Robt. LaFollette,
who personally dislike Taft, will
support the republican ticket, it
goes to show that they too believe
that the party's success is more im
portant than individual success or
ambition. Taft is a republican
and will not block republican legis
lation while on the other hand Wil
son would necessarily be compelled
to do so if he stood true to the
principles which he so strongly
advocates. With Wilson in the
president's chair the country would
have another period similar to that
which we experienced during the
Cleveland administrations. Cleve
land, personally, may have been a
good man, but the policies which
he advocated and the republican
legislation which he blocked
brought hard
on the country.
And it is this experience of the
past which
public men,
whether they admire Taft personal
ly or not, declare for the republi
can party and
The Chronicle opposed Norton in
the primaries. But in the state
ment which he has just made he
has won our admiration and if he
shows as good judgment and stands
by the republican party in congress
as he has declared for it now we
believe he will make a good con
gressman and will be the means of
promoting and helping to put into
effect good republican legislation.
We hope every republican .in Bill
ings county will stand by Mr. Nor
ton, and support the republican
ticket at the polls next mpnth
from top to bottom. It is a fight
for principles and when men like
LaFollette. Gronna, McCumber,
Helgeson, Hanna, Norton and other
prominent public men overlook
personalities and support the re
publican ticket it shows that there
is more at stake than the election
of Mr. Taft in this campaign. It
is all risrht to fight out our differ
ences within the party in the pri
maries, but when we go on the
political battlefield to meet our
common enemy, the democratic
free traders, it is time to line
up and demonstrate that the re
publican party is bigger than any
man or set of men.
Let's all join hands in Billings
county and give the G. O. P. a
regular old-time majority.
The political rivalry between J.
C. Kinney and B. S. Chappell at
Wibaux continues. Mr. Kinney
was selected as a delegate to the
republican national convention at
Chicago and immediately "B. S."
became a candidate to the national
convention at Baltimore, but was
unsuccessful. More recently Mr.
Kinney was nominated for lieuten
ant governor on the republican tick
et and then "B. S." became a
candidate for state senator on the
democratic ticket. We believe if
Mr. Kinney would commit suicide
for the love of his county, like the
noted Japanese general, "B. S."
would follow suit. There is keen
rivalry between the two gentlemen
for political honors, alright, al
Under the new postal law which
went into effect the first of this
month paid reading notices must be
marked as advertising. This prac
tically does away with the "paid
locals." All notices for which the
paper receives pay must be marked
as such. Church socials, dances,
etc., comes under the new law.
The Chronicle, commencing with
this issue, has classified all this ad
vertising under one head. All
notices which patrons insist on
having run in the local columns
must be marked "Advertising."
The newspaper reader will now
know just what is paid advertising
and what part of the paper is the
unpaid expression of the editor.
The law has some objections but
as a whole we believe it's alright.

say or urge that the interests of

Tift Men Gonsiilsr His Address
St Louis, Sept. 30.—No word from
President Taft has been received in
reply to Governor Hadley's ultimatum
to the state Republican committee
as terms on which he would support
the president in the present campaign.
This was announced by Colonel Otto
F. Stifel, member of the advisory com
mittee of the Republican national
committee, who wired President Taft
the text of Governor Hadley's ulti
matum. Colonel Stifel added that he
liad sent the president a second tele
gram saying that no immediate reply
was necessary.
Colonel Stifel, explaining this action,
declared, that he had informed the
president he considered "Hadley's
speech at the opening of the state
Republican campaign as an endorse
ment of Taft and a promise to sup
port him."
Governor Hadley's ultimatum was
that he would support President Taft
for re-election only on condition that
the president would at once declare
himself for presidential preference
primaries and nonboss controlled dele
gations from Southern states to na
tional conventions in order to prevent
recurrence of charges of fraud as
arose in the last Republican national

dent had been informed by telephone
and telegraph that Governor Hadley^
had refused to endorse his candidacy
unless the president came out in favor
of presidential preference and "un-'
bossed" Southern representation in Re
publican conventions.
The president refused to discuss1
these over the telephone with Mr.
Stifel and had nothing to say about.

made since his speech accepting the
Chicago nomination. It was delivered

Geneva Switzerland, Sept. 30.—An
other stormy scene marked the con

of Dr. Gobat, in which the president

characterized the Italian airmen who

%as a little boy. taking more comfort
In drawing pictures on my slate than
doing sums on it As 1 grew older 1
became ambitious to do something bet
ter, and asked my father to allow me
a few drawing lessons. He refused,
saying he would not encourage me In a
task that would wreck my future if 1
gave way to it
When it became time for me to choose
an occupaiton 1 wished to become an
artist,, but my parents made such an
ado over the matter tbat I abandoned
the plan and accepted a clerkship In a
grocery house. But if I couldn't make
pictures 1 could at least look at pic
tures. And it so happened that I lived
in a metropolis where the best works
of art are to be seen. I read the art
Journals and was on the lookout for
any announcements of the changing
hands of the great pictures of the
world, especially those coming to Am
I made no progress at business. All
I did in a business way bored me. It
was simple drudgery, and drudgery is
incompatible with an artistic tempera
ment. Instead of doing my work 1
sketched the office boys, the cat, any
thing tbat was sketchable. After
awhile 1 was informed by my employ
ers that they had no further need for
my services.
My father, after a scene.- secured an
other place for me and on entering
upon it I promised to try to do better.
But my heart was not in my work, and
I have no faith in people being able to
do continuously what they take no in
terest in. If they succeed in doing it
they will not do it well. I believe that
persons only do well what they like
and are fitted to do that eminently suc
cessful persons are successful in doing
that which other people cannot do. or
do as well.
One day after getting away from the
work I hated after business hours I
was passing a building that was being
torn down. A workman had taken a
roll of canvas from an old bricked up
chimney and was unrolling it I
stopped and saw him reveal a dirty
painting. I stepped up to where be
stood and looked over his shoulder. I
was astonished to see a work which,
though dingy in the extreme, reminded
me of the work of one of the great
masters who flourished In the latter
part of the fifteenth century. I looked
In the corner where the name should
be, but the dirt was too thick no
name was visible.
"What will you take for your find?"
I asked the workman.
"Oh, I don't suppose It is worth
anything,'* he said. "Any loose change
you have in your pocket"
"I'm as poor as you are," I said, "but
I know some picture dealers, and if
you will let me have this one I will
see what I can sell it for and divide
with you.'* The man looked me in the
face, handed me the painting and re
turned to work.
"Give me your address," I said.
He did so, and I went away with his
find.. Instead of taking it directly to
picture dealers I carried it to my room,
and sitting down before it, looked at it
a long while. The more I studied it
the more I was impressed with its re
semblance to the works of the artist
I have referred to. The same evening
I went to a library where engravings
of many pictures of the old masters
were kppt in portfolios and familiar
ized myself anew with the style of
this particular artist. The more 1 look
ed at his pictures the more 1 believed
tbat the find was by him. Could it be
possible that it had been stolen?
I set tlie librarian to bunting for a
book on stolen pictures, but though he
was successful in finding such a book,
it contained no reference to the la
borer's find. I wished to clean the pic
ture, but did not know how to do so
and was afraid to leave it with any
picture dealer for the purpose lest the
name he uncovered, and if it were as 1
suspected, the painting's value would
be discovered and I be beaten out of it
One day I told my father that I bad
left the place he had secured for me
aiid had gone to work in a picture and
frame shop. He was in despair about
me, and this move capped the climax.
In the shop where I worked I learn
ed to clean pictures. As soon as I be
came sufficiently expert to clean ai pic
ture I took the materials for doing so
to my home and got the dirt off the
corner where the name of the artist is
usually placed. What was my delight
to see the name of the artist who I
believed had done the work.
Believing the picture to have been
stolen I Consulted an expert dealer,
asking him if he could find a record of
one of the artist's pictures having been
stolen. He found a book In which the
artist had been written up with other
painters and a statement that in the
early part of the nineteenth century
one of his paintings belonging to a
nobleman in England bad been cut
from its frame and taken away.
I succeeded in time in opening a cor.
rospondence with the descendants of
the owner and sent them a photograph
of the painting.
This was before enormous prices
were paid for certain paintings, but
my correspondents agreed that if the
painting was the one the.v had lost
they would pay me $20,000 for it It
turned out to be the identical picture,
and I pocketed $10,000, giving the
flnder an equal amount
