An effort will be made, however, to
arrange for a joint debate at Willmar
between the two candidates before elec
tion, if the committees can agree as to
date and conditions. The republicans
are trying hard to create the impres
sion that Mr. Lommen is not Eddy's
equal in all respects. The TRIBUNE
would be highly pleased to have the
gentlemen appear in joint discussion
at Willmar.

A Communication.
Editor Willmar Tribune.
The populists of the fifth district of
this county are to be congratulated
on their good selection of a candidate
for county commissioner. The
nomineej ME_ John S. Tromberg-ia a
worthy representative of the large
progressive agricultural class of
Kandiyohi Co. Being a man of brood
views, intelligent and honest, he is a
man on whom they people can rely
in every way.
Mr. Tromberg has taken an active
part in the reform struggle of this
county ever since he located here, and
has, at every opportunity stood up
for what he considered to be right and
John S- Tromberg was born in
Denmark 1863, thus being now in the
flower of manhood. He immigrated to
this country in 1880, settled down in
McLeod Co., Minn, and moved with
his family in 1888 to Lake Lillian
where he has ever since resided. The
people of town of East Lake Lillian
soon realized that they in Mr. Trom
berg had a man of ability and honor
and in 1891 he was elected assessor of
the town, to which office he was re
elected in 1895 and 1896 nearly unan
When in the later years it became
evident that the dairy industry was
more profitable than wheat raising,
Mr. Tromberg was one of those men
who worked unceasingly until a co
operative creamery was erected, and
been a prominent member of the
Board of Directors of this establish
ment, the success of the institution is
for a great deal due to his energy and
sound judgment. Last spring Mr.
Tromberg was elected director of the
school board in Dist. No. 81, almost
unanimously, with 12 votes against 2,
and his energy and sense of right and
justice has already manifested itself
within the district. Mr. Tromberg
has not been seeking the office for
which he is noninated, when first of
fered, he refused to-accept it thinking
that an older and abler man would be
to-prefer, but finally yielded to the re
quest of his many friends and when
at the recent caucus a vote was taken
on the matter he out of 27 votes re
ceived 19 to his two opponents re
spective 7 and 1.
