Official Paper ol City and County. t.e to ll |i?/ 12 "THOU SHALT NOT STEAL" Will the Progressives of North Da kota permit one man to promote his own personal political ambitions while masking in the guise of a loyal and ardent supporter of Theodore (Roosevelt and the Third Party move ment? Is the personal and vindictive en mity of one man for another to be al lowed to defeat the cause of INational Frogressivism so far as No'rth Dakota is concerned? Upon the answers which the voters of the state give to these two ques tions, depends in a large degree the •triumphant progress or the death blow to the movement in this state. Not in the history of the state has there been so bare faced, so fradulent and so selfish a theft as that perpe trated at the state Boosevelt conven tion held in Fargo Friday morning. Nearly one balf of the Roosevelt men iwho attended the convention "were railroaded out of the meeting without a hearing, without trial—and upon the dictum of one man, W. S. Lauder of Wabpeton, gag rule artist and de 'baucher of clean politics. More than one hundred enthusias tic Roosevelt men came to iFargo yes terday to attend the convention of the third party. They were by a large majority Republicans prepared to give up their allegiance to the head of the national ticket, in the interests of a INational Progressive movement. They knew Roosevelt and what he has stood for in years past, and were will ing to trust to him to head a new na tional ticket. But this was not enough. Without knowledge of what platform the ne" .tarty might adopt, with noth ing to in anew party, they were asked to besert every republican can didate, both state and national, and support a new ticket, selected by W. S. Lauder. iMore thon one half of those present declined to trust their-political future in his hands, and straight way they were disbarred from further participa tion in the meeting. iMan after man who fought through the March primary campaign for Roosevelt while fLauder and others wer« stumping the state making at tacks upon him, were told that their support of a National Progressive ticket was no longer wanted. The real issue of the meeting was Hanna. The axe was first applied to •the editor of the Times-Record. He was asked by Lauder whether he had supported and would continue to sup port L. B. Hanna. He stated that he most certainly had and would, and was thrown out. A. F. Butler, leader of 'the Progres sive movement in Ransom county was •asked if he had supported Hanna. "No," said Butler, "I supported Bu chanan before the primaries, but I propose to accept the wishes of the majority, and shall support Hanna for the fall election—"Out you go?" says Lauder. The same thing occurred in a dozen instances when Buchanan men before the primaries declared they must ac cept the decision of the people and support Hanna for the fall election. Their heads were incontinently sev ered.

Lauder refused to eater tain the motion from two men, 'but upon its being put by a .third and sec onded by a dozen, put the motion. It was lost by a vote of twenty-five to fifteen, at least one of the Lauder fac tion voting twice. We have an abiding faith in the fairness of the average American, and his contempt for political chicanery. Fully one half of the "seated" dele gates left the hall disgusted with the methods of the ringmaster, while the non-seated delegates were equally dis gusted. We cannot believe the voters of the state will stand for politics of this character, and feel confident that before August fifth a plan will have worked itself out which will permit the sincere Roosevelt man to express his convictions without compromising himself so far as state issues are con cerned. The third party convention in Iowa declared in favor of the election of postmasters. This should hardly be considered a "progressive" measure. The tendency of modern thought is In the direction of reducing the number of elective offices. Many people see in the "short ballot" a short road to the correcting of many abuses. We are inclined to think that the election of postmasters will never be accepted as a progressive doctrine. To put them under the civil service rules might look better. Word comes from Oyster (Bay that Roosevelt's third party will not put a third ticket in the field in "Minneso ta.

August Belmont thinks he put up $50,000 for the 1904 campaign, but is not quite sure. Probably he lumped the Item under miscellaneous small sundries when he balanced up his cash for the month. The express companies say the new rates are too low to give them any profit, but if they don't like the prices they can quit the business and go to farming just as other people ihave to. The next time Mr. Lorimer's friends desire him to be in the Senate, they will find it much cheaper to allow him to view the proceedings from the vis itor's gallary. The lesson of the Rosenthal mur der is said to be to avoid gambling, but many men won't do that, as their wives and children would get the money. Aviator Latham was killed by a buf falo in (South Africa, where there was no crowd to pay gate money to see it done. It is claimed that a literary career does not pay.

D., July 26.—'Farm boys eager to learn modem methods In ag riculture, listened to Thomas Cooper, director ,of the Better Farming Asso ciation of 'North Dakota, at the state fair grounds yesterday. Mr. Cooper's talk dealit with opportunities in agri culture. His address was the feature of the day at the farm 'boys' encamp ment which is being conducted at the fair by the Better Farming associa tion. Mr. Cooper advised 'the boys to take up that work to which they are best suited and not to think that they would never make good off the farm simply because they had been brought up in the country. He cautioned them to be sure that the work they did take a hold of, if they decided' to leave the farm, would pay them bet ter and would bring in snore money than farming before they made the step from the country into the city. Director Cooper's talk was practi cal from start to finish. He worked on a North Dakota farm when he was sixteen years old and received wages of $17 a month. He knew what of he spoke when he catalogued what bene fits the farm offers the boy who wants to get ahead' and lay aside some money. Mr. Cooper called attention to the fact that the average man en gaged in city trades is not making over $600 to $1,000 a year, while the man on the farm, who applies him self and learns as he works, is living better and making considerably more money annually. The haphazard method of farming is rapidly passing, the speaker-con tended, aqd the farmer of today is developing into a business man as well as an up-to-date agriculturist. IMr. Cooper predicted a bright fu ture for the real farm boy and said that the day is approaching when the farm will have to have an expert man ager and look after the marketing of produce and the purchase of supplies if v, Quilts ............. .. .. Blankets Special Toweling ........ Oilcloth, first quality, yard Canvass Gloves, three pairs Good Shirts Overalls ,j3l and equipment just as the big busi ness house has today. He urged the boys to operate their own farms be cause there is where the 'opportunity in agriculture lies. The Better Farm ing man told the 'boys of an ac quaintance of his who had worked in a city on a small salary, had given up his position to go on a farm and in less than four years he liad taken up agricultural had doubled liis Income and is now living-as well as one could wish and a whole lot better than the majority ol people live even in the cities. This was one case, 'Mr. Coop er said, where pluck and ambition to amount to something had won out. Another interesting speaker at the farm boys' encampment was General Manager Smith wick of the American Steel and Wire company. He told the boys about the advantages of' wire fencing and the eradication of weeds. His talk was accompanied by stereop ticon views. Tomorrow morning the boys will turn in their stories of the encamp ment, the one writing the best story to be awarded a prize of $50, given by the Better Farming association.

Dr. Pray and Prof. "Myers did all they could for the Congs but they were mild along side of Walter. 'If rooting counts the Methodists ought to have won but it wasn't their day. The game was interesting from start to finish and full of funny situ ations. Doctor Palmer was on the mound for the Congs and was ably supported behind the bat by Scarry Bowen, and when it comes to playing behind the bat, outside of Morsbach, he Is the best catcher In the world. Palmer, barring Gust Anderson, is also the best pitcher in the world. Doctor Wicks made some sensational plays at second and the other bases were held down by Jim Mdntyre and •Charley Peterson. They were on to their jobs all the time. Knokken at short, Cowdrey out in left and Pickett at right were fast in their positions and helped win the game and last but not least by any means was Sid Ellis out in center. Now, its just like dropping 'a ball into a well when you knock a fly out in center when Sid is out there. He is a great batter as well which goes a long ways in win ning a game from the Methodists.

Burkhalter made some good catches and is one of the best all round players in the team. This makes two games won by the Congs and one by the Methodists.
