In all the annals of politics can you find a more flagrant specimen of bossism and dictatorship. And vet there are people who actually have faith that the platform pledges of such a gang mean more than their acts of performance. The good book savs that "Faith without works is dead," and we have good reason to doubt the ability of the state house gang of third termers being able to reverse the spirit of this saying which has proven infallible all possible taxation consistent W eminjf conditions.

Let us once more call the attention of the Re publican to the following figures, presented in so simple a manner that the essential point should be grasped oven by that organ: 'On Sept. 30 the price of cash wheat, No. 1 northern, was 85c at Grand Forks, 92c. in Minneapolis and $1.05 in Winnepeg. The freight on wheat from Winnepeg to Min neapolis is 9 cents, commission 1 cent, shrinkage and office charges 2 cents, total 12 cents." Wheat costing $1.05 in Winnipeg would cost $1.17 in Minneapolis. Are these figures comprehensive? Dc they mean anything? Now, is it possible for anyone who has even ordinary intelligence to say that the farmers on this side of the line have anything to fear from Canadian down through the ages. Words On the other hand there is scarce mean nothing when the deeds ly a single manufactured ar are all in the opposite direction, tide that can not be boughfeheap er in Canada than on this side of the line. Now does this fact al so mean anything to the farmers on this side of the line, who are compelled to buy their articles of manufacture in a trust controlled market? If all other facts fail to soak into the comprehension of the Republican editor, may we not present the following from the third term candidate himself, who only a year ago said "I be lieve in free trade with Canada both from economic and political reasons."

In 1887 he moved to Day county, living there until A(jv Hon. E. S. Johnson has just completed a tour of the northern part of the state, and at every place the enthusiasm was simply tremendous. Old campaigners this state declare that they never saw anything like it before. There are certainly signs all over the state of a rebellion against the present state house gang, and on the face of it the situation certainly favors the democratic national and state tickets. We desire right here, however, to protest against the apparent overconfidence of many of the democratic workers. Right at this time overconfidence is the most serious obstacle to overcome in this campaign. Confidence is all right, and we believe bene ficial, but it is not through con i fidence but by votes that this e i I I i n i!WH, when he settled on a homestead in what is now DeWitt township.
