The Rep ublican 'Publicity Association, through its persistent, Hon. Jon athan, Bourne, Jr., today gave put the following statement at its Washington Headquarters: "Probably the most ardent sup porter of Woodrow Wilson and the most bitter opponent of Hughes is the New. York World, the leader of the Democratic press. In view of its present lycritizism pf Mr. Hughes, for purely partisan reasons, every American voter, of whatever party, should read that paper's estimate of Hughes and his work in the past. The following are excerpts from the columns of that paper during the period of its ownership and control by the iate Mr. Pulitzer, who requested :n his will that Mr. Hughes serve as a trustee of his estate, a posi tion which Mr. Hughes declined: Quotations from the New :.f be at the Wolf Ranch on the -NW1-4 NE 1-4 of section 18 Township 13S, Range 103.

Range 106 The following is a list of officers to he elected at said General Election Congressional Officers Ares nart York World. "September 18, 1905—'Hughes' Admirable Work,. 'His admira ble work as counsel for the Gas Investigating Committee justified the people in accepting from him equally meritorious service as Counsel for the Insurance invest igating Committee. The public has not been disappointed in Mr. Hughes. Ife has justified every expectation. The World doubts any legislative investigation in the history of the State was ever conducted with, more ability or more actuely or more rationally| is evident that Mr. Hughes is ^oing to the very bottom of in surance corruption, and that when he lias finished, the policy holders and the people will know for the first time how these great corporations are managed.' "October 7, 1905—'The Repub lican Ticket'. 'The Republican vote ticket is one to appeal to the intelligence rather than to the emotions. His (conduct of the gas "investigation last spring was masterly. Mr. Hughes con duct of the legislative investiga tion of insurance corruption is of the history of the day it has attracted the attention of •lie entire country. "October 8, 1905.—'Charles E. Hughes'. 'His nomination for Mayor, first suggested by the World, reflects credit upon the Republican City campaign. The extroardinary service Mr. Hughes has rendered to the cause of truth, and justice in awakening the moral sense of the nation against crimes of cupidity and of trust betrayed, must make a far search for a parallel. He repre sents opposition to the corruption of bossism of enmity to one-man rule in financial and commercial chairs and of implacable hostil ity to financial crimes. In the interest of public and general welfare the World hopes that "Sirf Hughes will accept.' "October 10. 1905.—'A Man like Hughes.' "The sacrifice was too great. The World regrets that Mr. Hughes is not free to make the race, but neither his re fusal nor the brevity of the time remaining alters by one iota the basic fact. The Mayor of New York ought to be of the Hughes type. He would let light into all the dark and secret and festering places of loot and plunder. He would drive grafters and para sites from the City Hall. He would destroy the alliance be tween IV public-service corpor "ons ."ivl the city government. Thet would be no McAdoos tlv" would be a better police Derailment and better protection to homes. New York needs such a Mayor.' "October 11, 1905.—'He still Hughes to the line, let the chips fall where they may.' October 5, 1906—'Mr. Hughes and the Independents'. (In re-ac ceptance speech when nominated for Governor )—'Mr. Hughes' personal force shows in every ^ne of his speech. He is expli cit and emphatic in what he says shall be and shall not be done after he is elected governor. He deals in none of the Doliticians over-promises of the demoggue's cheap phrases. He has the pow er to convince men that the bos ses need expect nothing from him. "No individuals," he de clares, "or group of individuals and no private interest will be permitted to dictate my policy. I shall decide and act according to my conscience and as I believe the public interest requires." Mr Hughes' strength is in the ap peal he makes to the intelligence and common sense of independ ent voters. For this appeal he is well equipped by his character, his training, and his record. The World shares in his faith in ap nealing to "the common sense of the American people, which has never failed to express itself de cisively in a great crisis." "October 6, 1906—'Mr. Hughes' positive methods as a reformer arc known to all men. He dealt •villi insurance corruption and high-finance crookedness as re lentlessly as he now unmasks office seeking demagogism. His record is to be read in the sta tutes passed at Albany.' "October 8, 1906.—'Mr Hughes on the Stump.' 'He has appealed "ot as a partisan to partsisans but as a citizen to citizens. The addresses of the scholarly lawr vsr have been simple and straight forward, strong in sincerity, eff ective in earnestness.' "Oct. 11, 1906—'Mr. Hughes said (in his Buffalo speech, Oct. 10, '06) he would endeavor to have more money appropriated to force labor laws. The laws should be enforced cost what en forcement may. Mr. Hughes promises nothing that he cannot nd will not perform.' "October 12, 1906—'When Mr. hughes promises to giveth peo ple of New York a clean, honest administration, ifree f)om boss nile and corporation Jinfliioiiec, they can accept his word. His record is that of a man who keeps his word faithfully and scrupulously. When has he. ever roken a public promise oi re pudiated a public pledge? "October 29, 1906—'Rooseve'.t or Hughes,. 'No one who knows how strong the President's (Rosevelt's) great fight against eorporaled abuse has made hi •villi his countrymen, can (louSt l!iat his manly declaration will bt to Mr. Hughes also as a tower strength.* "June 3, 1907.—'Governor Hughes has rendered a high'y meritorious, service not only to New York but to the nation. The edit for the Utilities bill belongs largely to him. He initiated the measure and sketched the general ulan of supervision. It was his frank and convincing appeals to ublic opinion tthat forced the hands of a reluctant legislature It was his unyielding couragc that prevented a disastrous com. 1'iomise.. It is only five months since Mr. Hughes became chief executive of New York. The World cannot' believe, in the light of the events of those five months that there are many voters left •«i the State who would wish that the issue of the election had re sulted otherwise than it did.' CERTIFIED SEED POTATOES Information received by the North Dakota Development League* Press Bureau recently is to the effect that California has a extension svstem which lias found that certified seed potatoes are worth 50 to 80 cents more a bush el than the ordinary run of seed. The difference in the price will be greater as time goes on and "eople in general will find out the value of certified seed. The olan as worked out consists of an inspector whose duty it is to inspect the fields two or three times and also see the seed in the bins. Manv fields can be brought •'n to the standard by pulling out the ,»ased BAD LAND PAINTS MAY REVOLUTIONIZE INDUSTRY Slope (ounty N»\vs—AVIier. James L. Tucker of St. Paul, Alt' White of Dickinson and Fred White of Amndon recently trav eled through the Bad Lands of North Dakota, they said that they iocated something which was just as good as a goldmine, but would not tell the exact nature of their find. A little while ago the News stated that the Bad Lands were just coming into their own. The following 'article, clipped from the St. Paul Dispatch and which appeared in a number of other 'lalies the past week, will bear the truth of this statement and nerhaps throw a little light upon I he "finds" made by the above mentioned gentlemen. A paint-grinding machine is in operation at Dickinson already. sample of the Bad Land paint may be seen on the city hall in New England, which was recently given a coat of paint made from the Bad Land pigments. St. Paul. Sept. 15.—The discov ery of vast pigment beds by sev eral St. Paul business men, may revolutionize the paint business if the world. The pigment beds "e west of Dickinson, N. D., in 'lie Bad Lands, on the Northern Pacific railroad. An option on 11,000 acres own ed by Geo. W. Sloeum, apilal National Bank building, has been promised $2,000,000 backing by bankers and wholesale houses in St. Paul who are interested in the business. If the pigment proves the same as that which comes from Austria md northern Italy, the paint business of the world will be hanged on account of the vast fields known to exist in the Bad r.ands. :n hills. Those receiv ing aid in this way pay pro rata "n the number of acres each one l"as. The cost amounting to about »m average «*f $2.00 p\»r More. The increased rice on 4 five bushels pays Ihe bill. Try uur Job Printing. If the samples prove to be what is known as American pigment, nothing will come of the venture, as there is no mar ket for that product among paint Manufacturers. The fields discovered by Mr, Tucker, are the results of years of burning of the lignite coal fields the Bad Lands. Pigment to make paints of every color the rainbow are in the fields and some- excellent paint has been made from the pigment from mixing il with linseed oil, it is said. A thorough test and analysis of the pigment is now being made by the best chemists in the north west to determine its value. If it is valuable, a large factory will be erected at once in St. Paul. FALL PLANTED ONIONS. Certain kinds of onions can be planted in the fall, according to a market gardner near Grand Forks, that will be ready for use ealy in Ihe spring. It is not gen erally known that onions of the rerennial variety may be planted in the autumn, and will be ready '"r use almost as soon as the snow is off the pround in the spring. In fact, they have been found to make quite a start un der the snow. The sets of this variety grow at the end of the seed stalks, r! should be gathered as soon as formed, and kept in a cool, dr* place until September or Octob er. A rich bed should be mode and the sets planted and thev will be ready for use before the or rtinarj' onions are grown. Wh these onions are perennial t.-.d increase by roots and tin sets, they are more tender when a new bed is put out every year instinl of allowing them to multiply in thir own fashion. These onions never grow lart*.-» bulbs. In fact the bulb is little 'I any larger than the stem. But is white and tender early in the spring. It is slightly stronger in flavor than ordinary oniois but if this is disliked, soaking ihe onion for an hour or two in salt water iust before using will dissipate some of the flavor.

Southwestern North Dakota cities are giving this slate a splendid exposition of the prin ciple of community interest, in their whole hearted support of the proposed constitutional amendment by which a new state normal school would be lo cated at Dickinson. Every city in the district, and it comprised nearly a fourth of Ihe entire state, is united in favor if Dickinson for the new school —all local selfishness and local ambition being abandoned that the district may obtain the edu cation facilities required to pro perly maintain the state's edu cational interests Wrtyh. no /state !school .ploser lhan Valley City on the east and Minot on the north, Dickinson is in the heart of a tremendous territory that is now denied facil ities for the proper education of its young people The territory includes all that section west and south of the Missouri River, and with the tremendous growth ex_ perienced during the past few years, sponsers of the normal school movement are possessed with very forceful arguments in favor of it. The United front presented by Ihe southwest has carried their movement to marked successes already. Twice the state legisla ture has passed favorably on the proposition of establishing the new normal school: both great •political parties in this state have declared themselves favorable, and the state board of rgents has recommended the school. It is because the people of the southwest have recognized the -ower of united action that they 'iave been able to advance their "auses so satisfactorily up to the present time. The normal school intendment needs only favorable mention in the coming general el Uon to become law—and there is every reason to believe that the peonle of the state will approve of the plan bcause of the gener ally recognized need for the school.
