Amounts Spent By Various Can
didates in the Late Struggle
For County Offices.
Sixteen of the twenty-seven per
sons who tried for county offices in
the primary and general election
this fall have sworn to the county
auditor that "the following is a
full and correct statement of all
sums of money contributed, dis
bursed, expanded or promised to or
by him." Peter Bonde, re-elected
sheriff, says it cost him about $52
to turn the trick County Superin
tendent W. D. Frederickson, who
was re-elected without opposition,
spent $80 exactly John Feig, also
without opposition, blew in $110
It cost H. T. Olson $93.08 to be de
feated in the primaries for the
office of clerk of court, while the
present incumbent, H. J. Ramsett,
had to part with almost $200 to re
main in office. The exact amount
was $198.67, the highest figure re
corded by any candidate so far.
N. O. Nelson, our next treasurer,
'fessed up that he drew $156.40
from his bank account in order to
handle the cash for the county,
while his opponent at the primary,
Lundquist, handed over $98.25.
Among the register of deeders who
wanted to get in, L. Z. Thompson
was the luckiest, getting "out of
it" with only $34.15. It cost Gran
gaard $62.25, and Ben Halvorson
$103 50. Oolf H. Dale, the success
ful bidder for this public office, has
to yet filed his account. A. F.
Nordin "did it" with $102, and
Andrew Nordloef, who ran for state
treasurer on the Independence tick
et, is shy $50 which he handed over
to R. B. Higbee for filing fees.
Thos H. Olson, county commission
er from the First district, got out
of it, or rather "into it" with $59,
while his opponent, Jas. L. Jarrett,
the only democratic candidate, paid
out $13.50, $10 for filing fees and
$3.50 for a box of cigars. C. J.
Swenson, commissioner
Fifth district, comes close to the
bottom of the list with only $15 ex
pended, but Dr. Harold Frcst car
ries off the tail price with only $10
chalked up against his bank account.
The rest of the candidates have not
"registered" as yet, but will have
to file their affidavits on or be
fore next Tuesday.

Swedish Society Social.
The Swedish society, Vega, gave
a very enjoyable social to its mem
bers and their families and some
invited guests last Monday evening
at Bonde Hall. The first part of
the evening was taken up with a
literary and musical program.
Judge Nordin delivered an interest
ing speech on the society and its
objects, and also rendered several
humorous selections that were great
ly enjoyed. The musical part of
the program consisted of piano
solos by Miss Esther Peterson, a
flute and piano duet by Misses Car
rie Elfstrum and Lillian Johnson,
and as a special feature, a violin
solo by Prof. N. B. Swalin. That
is, he was down for only one selec
tion, but his rendition of a Swedish
selection was so thoroly appreciated
that he had to respond to two en
cores, also consisting of Swedish se
lections that took the audience by
storm. After the program the
crowd adjourned to the main hall,
where a delicious lunch was served.
Having done full justice to this
part of the program, the crowd
amused themselves in various ways
for some time, the children espe
cially having a glorious time, as
sisted by some of those who had
not yet forgotten how to enter into
the spirit of childhood games. Al
together, the affair was voted a de
cided success.

Easl Bound Flyer Collides With
With Rear End of Freight
Train Near Clontarf.
Great Northern passenger train
No. 4, due here at 3:25 a. m.. ran
into the tail end of an extra freight
at Clontarf this morning at 4
o'clock. The passenger engine was
derailed, setting fire to a number
of freight cars. Engineer Denny
of St. Paul had an arm and a leg
scalded by hot water from a burst
pipe, and one of the mail clerks
was somewhat cut and bruised.
None of the passengers were in
jured. Conductor McMullen was
trying to pull his fieight in tbe
clearing but he was unable to do so
in time to prevent the collision.
The passenger was running behind
its schedule and was trying to make
up time. The heavy fog which
prevailed prevented Engineer Denny
from seeing the freight before
within two miles of it, but the fact
that he saw it then probably saved
the passenger from a terrible
The morning passenger for the
cities was sent out to Clontarf in
stead, to take the passengers on
No. 4 thru to Willmar. A special
equipment train passed thru here
trom St. Paul about noon. It is
expected that the noon passenger
from the west will get thiu about
an hour late.
Later—The injured persons passed
thru here at noon on the way to St.
Paul. Besides Engineer Denny,
Mr. P. Orgey, the fireman, was also
somewhat injured, as were Camp
bell, Hawkins and Anderson, the
three mail clerks.
Monday evening Sheriff Bonde
received a telegram from the Ram
sey county authorities to arrest and
hold one E. B. Wheaton, who had
skipped out from St. Paul and left
a board bill of about $300 unpaid
at the Northern hotel. Mr. Bonde
made the arrest as Mr. Wheaton
was about to board the late even
ing west bound passenger and tne
prisoner was held here till this
morning, when he was taken to St.
Paul by Sheriff Gerber, who came
up to get him last night.
Mr. Wheaton was injured at
Morris in May last while in the
employ of the Great Northern, and
he had been staying at the Northern
the past six months, preparatory to
suing the road for heavy damages.
It is said that a short time ago a
satisfactory settlement was made,
and that now he was trying to get
away without in turn making the
necessary settlement with his law
yers and keepers. Wheaton is the
same man who figured in the police
affray here last spring. At that
time he pleaded guilty to assault
and paid a fine and costs.
Children Must Go to School.
John Whalen Jr., of Benson, rail
way and factory inspector, was in
the city yesterday for a short time,
looking over all factories, and other
buildings where laborers are em
ployed. He will return shortly af
ter Thanksgiving to look up some
families that make a practice of
keeping their children out of school.
The state law specifically requires
that all children between the ages
of 8 and 16 shall attend school
every day when it is in session, un
less excused by the authorities in
the matter, and there is a heavy
fine for violating this law. There
are a few families in Willmar that
are liable to this fine, and unless
they see to it that their children go
to school regularly the law will be
enforced by the state labor depart
ment, under which Mr. Whalen is
