Octogenarian Arrives
fe On 3,000 Mile Tramp
'Thomas Davis, almost an octogena
rian, passed through Valley City last
night on his long walk from Roslyn,
"WashL, to Fairmount, W. Va. He is
78 years old and well preserved, but
lias not been making very good time
since he left his far western home.
H.e left Roslyn the latter part of
Jirae and has been making his way
slowly over the mountains and ilains,
walking most of the time, as he is too
old to catch freight trains. The only
boosts he got were short rides offered
ijjr farmers. Going at this rate he will
sea3i West Virginia some time next
As soon as he arrived in the city yes
iterday evening he applied for permis
sion to sleep in the police station and
was accommodated. He said he work
•ed in the coal mines in Roslyn, bat it
was too hard and he decided tD go
his old home in the east. He left
Roslyn without a cent in his pocket,
and had no money when he came here.

Odds Favor the Redsox
New York, Sept. "JO.—Bettting to
day on the world's series is at 10 to S
with the odds offered by supporters of
the Red Sox. A party of public brok
,-ers sent a purse of $10,000 to the
stock exchange today, offering to wa
ger it against ?8,000 on the Red Sox
against the Giants. It is thought
probable that the odds on the series
will remain at the present figure un
til the opening game, Oct. 8.

developed mechanism and controlled
tone, and his interpretations are very
straightforward, convincing and free
from mannerisms. In spite of the
length of the program, his perform
ance of the difficult Canipanella by
Liszt was such a triumph that he was
forced to respond to an encore. We
would be fortunate to hear him again,
and he should receive more advertis
ing in the advance notices.

Under the North Dakota law the
names of the socialist candidates will
appear in the "independent" column
as no party designation is permis
sible under the primary unless a party
polls at least a five per cent vote
cast for governor in the last preceding
election. This the socialists failed to
do in 1910. In that year they also
made an effort to have the law carry
ing this provision declared unconsti
tutional, but it failed, the supreme
court holding the law sound.
The socialists are confident they
will he able to show a big gain in
their vote. They say that in the
western sections they will make par
ticularly heavy inroads on the strength
of the old parties, while in some sec
tions of the south central portion of
the state, notably in Stutsman coun
ty, they expect to show marked ad
vances. Here is the complete state
and congressional ticket placed in
nomination today:
Presidential Electors—W G. John
son, Fargo 1. G. Mowers, Bowbells
Max Evenholm, Omemee ®. A. Smith,
Beach O. E. Johnson, Delemere.

This was the famous phrase that
represented the spirit of the cam
paigns of 1896 and 1900. It was de
rided as merely material and fleshly.
At the same time every sensible
worker in philanthropic societies and
churches, knows that it is of no use
trying to convert anyone until he is
deecntly fed and clothed and warmed.
Similarly in politics. The funda
mental question, the one that takes
precedence of every other, is that of
the full dinner pail. A party may
propose all kinds of alluring reforms,
and some of them may be good ideas.
At the same time, If the party lead
ers lack a certain practical business
or common sense, they may make a
mess of the business of the country
that will leave no hope or energy left
for the trying of experiments. When
a workingman finds the notice "Closed
for lack of orders'' posted up on his
workshop door, the only thing that
comes into his mind is how he can
open up that factory.
In the four years from 1893 to 1897,
the traveller about the country was
confronted everywhere by the gloomy
sight of silent factories, no smoke
coming out of the chimneys, no sign
of human habitation except the watch

Although stump orators are every
where citing these four years as an
example of Democratic methods, it
has not been our fortune so far to
hear any Democratic orator or news
paper taking up this point and at
tempting to refute it.
The Democratic party cannot es
cape responsibility for the 'black
period of depression that then exist
ed. It was a panic three or four times
as lasting and crushing as the finan
cial difficulties that occurred in 1907.
What reason has the Democratic
party to show that it has changed its
essential nature in fifteen years?

Socialist Will Have
A State Ticket
•Bismarck, N. D., Sept. 30.—Social
ists of North Dakota will today file
petitions "with the secretary of state
nominating their list of state and con
gressional candidates. Saturday the
last of the 300 signatures necessary to
nominate a ticket was secured, a com
mittee of the state convention, held
last June in Devils Lake, being in
charge of the matter of nominating.
Candidates Can't
Aid In Campaign
Special to the Times-Record.
Bismarck, N. D., Oct- 2.—No man
who is a candidate for office or elected
to office can contribute to his cam
paign fund and if he does he is subject
to fine and imprisonment and expul
sion from office.
Such is the substance of an opinion
handed down by Attorney General
MHler late this afternoon regarding
that part of the corrupt practice act
touching campaign contributions.
Candidates Seek Opinion.
Just what will be done by the cen
eral committee to obtain funds re
mains to be seen. The question had
been put to the attorney general by
a number of candidates who had befen
asked to contribute the usual amount
to the expenses for carrying on a
general campaign in the state. In
closing his answer to the inquiry of
the candidates, Mr. Miler says:
"In my opinion, the provision of the
section so clearly and unqualifiedly
prohibits any candidate or elected per
son from making any such payment,
that there is no room for any other
view. Section 13 makes anyone violat
ing this section guilty of corrupt prac
tices and section 19 provides that if
any person is guilty of corrupt prac
tices he should be punished and de
prived of the office to which he Is
elected and under section 21 .the pun
ishment for violating this act is im
prisonment for not more than six
months or fine of $1,000, or both.
Act is Radical.
"The entire act is most radical and
sweeping and you are advised that a
contribution such as you contemplate
is in direct violation of that law and
if prosecuted therefor you {would be
subject to the penalties above men

Interesting Report
Of Board Meeting
ments was no small task. A just
distribution for most effective work
was uppermost in the minds of all.
"North Dakota was fortunate in
having representation in two depart
ments, Miss Neilson in the Educa
tional department, and Mrs. Hildreth,
of Fargo in the Industrial and Social
Conditions department.
"For the first time in the history
of the Federation the Northwest has
three members on the board of the
General Federation of Women's
Clubs: Mrs. W. P. Harper, of Seattle,
who has been very active in club
work in her state, and Mrs. Christie,
of Butte, Mont-, who came west in the
early days from Scotland, and under
stands western problems, and Mrs.
White of North Dakota.
"Partly on account of this repre
sentation and partly because the
Northwest has not been in close touoh
with federation work, an effort was
made to bring the 1913 Council to
Valley City. While the efforts were
not rewarded, if is hoped that by the
time of the biennial, which meets in
Chicago, federation spirit will have
grown to stich an extent in this part
•f the country that our invitation may
be accepted for 1915,
composed of officers, directors and
department members, as well as the
state presidents and secretaries.
Such a meeting in our little city
would have been a wonderful inspira
tion to the entire state. North Da
kota has very few clubs belonging to
the General Federation, and with
Mrs. White as chairman of the mem
bership committee for the ensuing
two years, it is hoped the number
may be increased.
