is somewhat peculiar' and to
some it is even amusing to see to
what extent the bump of uncertainty
well develop itsell in a candidate for
office when he happens to be in a
public meeting where he must vote
one way or the other. The tenacious
affection he shows for the top rail of
the fence is really touching.

Our Trip to Aldrich
Ye editor visited Aldrich last week
and found the villiageina flourishing
and healthy condition. The Bryant
Bros, who own and conduct a large
general mercantile store are doing a
good business and may well be con
sidered among the solid business men
of the Northern Pacific country.
They are experiencing much trouble
and inconvenience by being un*ble
lo secure cars to move the produce
of the country tributary to the town,
which, however, the company will no
doubt obviate at their earliest, pos
sible convence, in justice to the
town and its business men.
Agent Nichols eoductsthe business
of the R. R. here in a veiy able and
satisfactory manner. He also feeds
the hungry travelers who come to
Aldrich 0:1 pleasure or business bent
in a manner to do credit to any good
hotel. He is a dicided acquisition to
the villiage and will no doubt prove
a valuable factor iu the progrcsa of
the place.
John Gillespie is another of the
solid men of the p!a*e and has built
himself one of the fi-iest residences in
the town. He has recently built a
store and put in a sto^k of goods
which he sells cheap an is constantly
adding to as his trade iiicrea es. He
is also Postmaster here and is doing
his share toward the growth of Aldriuh
in proof of which we cite the fact that
he his beea instrumental in bringing
a good citizen there to live. The sit
izen mentioned only weighed 10
pounds when he first opened his eyes
lo the beauties of Aldrieh, on the 1 (5th
of Oct.1879, but, like his father's trade
cannot help but grow heavier and
better. Lo:ij live the house of
Gillespir.
Aldrich has wagon and blacksmi li
shop and possessing as it does a good
farming country surrounding-it must
per force, have a continued and heal
thy growth. Several families have
recently arrived, to settle of which
our conespondent will doubtless
speak more trticula-ly in his co n
tauniu ttions. From such intelligent
and well-fo-do firmers as Messrs
Joyous E. G. and C. O. Lovejoy,
French, Spencer, and many others
the newcomers are warmly welcomed
and assisted. They all have good
farmsand their advice may be relied
upon by the settlers who may become
their neighbors hereafter. Aldrich is
to be represented in our columns by
a regular correspondent. A few more
and the people's paper will contain
the largest list of contributors of any
Journal in this section and contain
each week through the medium of its
correspondents, a register of the news
and progress of the many different
settlements in this and adjoining
counties, which will prove an inval
uable feature in entertaining our read
ers from week to week. Let tnem
come, the re vs not personalities, and
THE FARMER will ever make room for
them.
COUNTY CONVENTION.
The Republican county convention
for Wadena county was heldatVern
dale on Saturday,,8th inst., and re
sulted in the following nominations:
Auditor, F. C. Fields, Verndale.
Treasu rer, Z.IIanderson, Thomas
town
Register of Deeds, C. E. Bullard,
Verndale.
Sheriff, Chas. Brown, Verndale.
Co. Attorney, E. E. Luce, Wadena.
Co. Surveyor, J. Sooms, Verndale.
Judge of Probate, L. W. ttmith,
Verndale.
Supt. of Schools, J. Barton. Wing
River.
Court Commissioner, J. E.Hall, Wa
dena.
To those acquainted with the fore
going names, it will be seen that they
were selected in the interests of Vern
dale regardless of the public welfare
of Wadena county. Will the voters
of this county sustain the action of
the convention in pursuing this selfish
policy It is to be hoped that they
will have the back-bone to assert their
rights at the polls, as Ave have no
doubt they will. Tiie Farmkr can
not conscientiously support the whole
ticket as it has been placed in the
field through the machinations of
Verndale men, in their interest only,
and it does not propose to do so.
In the first "place, who and what is
Mr. Fields, the nominee for the most
important office of the county, that
of Auditor? He is a 3Toung, unmar
ried man has been a clerk in the
store of Smith fe Co., about a year,
and has never paid a cent of taxes in
this county, am! furnishes no visible
evidenc* that he intends to make his
home in Wadena county. In elect
ing him at the head of the Republican
ticket the intelligent voters of this
county will heap insult on their own
integrity and the abiltity of every
man who has encountered the hard
ships and privations incident to the
early development of this county and
consequently has a deep interest in
the stiictly economical management
of our county finances. Every man
who solicits votes for F. C. Fields for
county auditor, insults every tax
payer and old settler in this county.
Wo hope they will have the back
bone to resent all such solicitations
and maintain their dignity as men
and gentlemen and elect, at least,
someone who pays taxes and has a
permanent interest in the count}'.
Mr. Bullard, the candidate lor Reg
ister of Deeds, has a reputation which
is sufficient to debar any. and every
respectable and intelligent voter from
using his influence to pi ice such a
in in so responsible a position as
register of deeds, in which office it is
absolutely essential to have a steady,
reliable and thorough-going business
m. and good penman. This county
cuinot afford to pay assistant officers
The men elected must perforin the
duties of their offices personalty, and
it is a well known et that Mr. Bnl
l.ad is personally incapable of spread
ing upon the records any title or ti
tles in a proper or intelligible manner.
Against the balance of the tidket,
we have nothing to saj*, except of
the office of Supt. of Schools. Prof.
Geo. W. Whitney was before that
invention as a candidate for that of
fice and was confessed by all thinking
men to be the best man for that |o
sitiou in the county. And yet, in or­
der to accomplish their selfish aim,
they voted lor an inferior man. Show
ing conclusively that it was the inten
tion of eight delegates in that conven
tion to beat the village of Wadena at
the cost of the best interests of Wadena
county. Will the voters through the
county lend themselves to aid this
nefarious scheme? We give them
credit for mote manhood and good
sense.
