Mr. Voter, of the49th district,

aenatar. and for H. J. Stinger
and Jacob L. Hjort for honse of
Representatives, Mr. Jacobson
has served half a term as senator
from the 49th district, has done
well, and is deserving of the
highest confidence of his consti
tuents. He makes an honest
petition to be approved in his ef
forts by being once more return
ed, to serve the people in the
same capacity. Legislative ac
tion cut his term in two, and
fairness and justice demand that
he be given that chance which
any man has a right to ask, the
chance to complete his work.
Mr. Hjort is one of the bes*
known citizens of Adams county,

influence in cuitural effort, nib

Before Congressman Hanna

years ago, he was ir. business at

farming community, vhich like
all other new sections, tnen had
its own share of ups anc downs

go. To-day many of thjse are
still there and bless the days
when Hanna was at Page, for it
was in those trying times, when
again and again hope seemed
dashed to the ground and despair
stared them in the face, that a
trip to "Louie" and a talk with
"Louie" heart to heart brought
cheer and encouragement and

Head and shoulder in worth as a
candidate for governor, he de
serves a unanimous boost into
the gubernatorial chair this year.
If a few bright fellows stock
their heads together and decided
on something that was to be
done- sliped over otT the voters—
two years later, all the more to
be condemned is the action of
these passing bosses. That's
just the trouble with Adams
county politics. Three or four
think they are "it," and try to
tell the dear long-sufferirg public
what to do. It is our view, that
nobody had any right to make
any agreements as to what was
to be done as to the lejrislafive
ticket of 1912. The vote rs ought
to have something to say about
that. Furthermore, Adams coun
ty is not living up to "that"
agreement, because then was no
agreement to live up to. The
people of Adams county are not
trying to hurt themselve, to toe
the mark to the dictates (f a Het
tinger buch.
The worn out phrase "ihe poor
man's friend" has a tendency to
act like a boomerang. This is a
poor man's country. Must the
humble man alwavs lool for his
salvation to the rich? H. J.
Stinger, is a humble man who
devotes his energy and some of
his hard earned money to a
campaign in which he believes
the rank and file of citizens will
nominate and elect him. Is it
not best that the people should
have at least one of their own to
represent him in the legislature?
It is a safe assertion to say that
Mr. Stinger is at least the equal
of the best now running.
The fact is, H. P. Jacobsen is
a man who has a mind of his
own, and is therefore i,o more
receptive to the demandf of any
clique or gang that represents
nothing more than its own un
bridled ambitions. Jacobsen has
shown that he represents the
49th district and has done well.
The public thinks more than some
people give it credit for.

merits are such that Adams coun

his services another term.
Hettinger has a Norton club
making a frantic effort to save
Adams county for him. Needless
to say lucre are no Norton clubs
anywhere else in the third con
gressional district of North Da
kota. And Adams county has
long ago ceased to idolize Pat.

The latest trick of the Hetting
er gang, to characterize the three
legislative candidates, Messrs.
H. P. Jacobsen, Jacob L. Hjort
and H. J. Stinger, as tools of a
"railroad gang" is the limit.
This is a disgrace that deserves
the united anathema of the 49th
legislative district of North Da
kota. The charge is a clumsy
imitation of the recent Perkins
county campaign, which was
waged under entirely different
conditions. As it is, speaking
for H. P. Stinger, we will say
that since coming here in 1907,
Mr. Stinger has been a pro
nounced progressive, and has
never ceased showing the plain
blunt manly spirit of independ
ence that moves him. Mr. Hjort
is to well known by the farmers
and the, population generally in
the west end of Adams countv as
a man of sterling worth, and as
a man who every day is on the
side of the people, to run danger
that this attempt at mudslinging
could possibly harm him. And
Sen. Jacobsen has a clear record
that gives the lie to this con
temptible assertion. For the
Hettinger bunch to hire a cheap
rag in South Dakota to print its
vicious dope a paper that has no
circulation north of the line, yet
willingly lends itself to such vil
lainy for money, is a move that
will be resented by the voters of
Adams county. The slander of
the fair and untarnished reputa
tion of three North Dakota citi
zens by the Signal will not be al
lowed to pass without proper

has about as much chance as a
snowball in the abode of Satan.
In H. J. Stinger the farmers
of the 49th district of North Da
kota have one of their own men,
for whom to vote will be a privi
lege. No more representative
man ever entered the legislature
than H. J. Stinger is, and he
deserves the hearty endorsement
of every man that holds the plow.
The republican national con
vention is to-day in the throes of
its fourth day session and the
end is not yet. From the big
volume of matter furnished by
the daily press enough may be
gleaned to show that Taft is hold
ing his own and will probably re
main on the field to the last.
Roosevelt and his boom have ap
parently gone to pieces, and the
passing dictator appears to have
decided to take the bit between
the teeth and repudiate the con
vention, with the expectation of
going it alone. A horde of his
devotees will probably launch
their own fortunes under the
term of an independent party,
styling itself the progressive
party. Doubtless the Roosevelt
ians, ill restrained at any time
would have bolted the convention
ere this, but as Roosevelt cannot
hope to have all his adherents
leave with him, such a step would
result in the doom of his pre
tensions. The lastest report has
it that Henry M. Cochems, La
Follette's campaign manager, has
joined the Roosevelt forces- sure
ly an unaccountable action, as
every friend of LaFollette must
recognize in Roosevelt the undoer
of the former's campaign. The
entire gist of the Roosevelt dem
onstration hinges on the seating
of contested Taft delegates. That
the contests in favor of Roosevelt
are trumped up to suit the Colo
nel's plans is painfully apparent,
and the convention evidently did
right in shutting out tk» preten
