As stated last week in the Standard, these "small select meetings" have been held from time to time in this city, the outcome of which has been a frame-up or political "slate," which is made up as follows: For State Senator— Andrev Marvick.

The people are fully competent to make their own selections, and the primary law was enacted for the express purpose of giving them a chance to do so.

Vote for him. illH The Standard believes that Or ville A. .Johnson, of White Koek township, is the logical candidate: for sheriff of Roberts county, lie has live'd in the county for the past, fourteen years, and lia.s never before sought an office. He is a farmer, and is the only farmer who is running for the office of sheriff. He is a man of strict integrity, good ju'dgmcnt arid fair education, and if nonii nate'd and elected sheriff of Rob erts county he will give 1.he of fice his close personal attention and has the ability to conduct the same in a manner that will be above criticism. Your vote will count if you cast it for Orville Johnson for sheriff. Senator. A. II. Dahl, of Vernon, and 11. M.

Knight, republican can didate for coiunty judge, is well known throughout the county, having lived here ever since he graduated from the .Minne sota state university eleven yeans ago, and we have yet to hear anyone say a word against liinn. lie is an attorney at law, hav ing been regularly admitted to practice in all the state courts, arid is well qualified to conduct the office of county judge. Mr. Knight, has been actively engag ed mi farming, having held down and proved up on a claim in One Road township, and is therefore in a position, to appreciate the consideration that is due thfc far med', and whaft his rights are. lie has always taken an active part in all matters of public in terest. As secretary of the re publican county committee lie .succeeded in getting a rural mail route established south fnmn Wilmot. after the. matter had been drugging along for a, num ber of years. It was just ten days from the time the proposition was taken hold of by llal Knight until the route was ordered estab Used by the postal department. The customary period for a man to hold a county office is two terms, and as the present inciiim bent of the county judge's of fice has already held the position for four years, Mr. Knight feels as though some other taxpayer should be given a chance to re lieve the present judge. llal M. Knight is a man who is thoroughly quajliil'ied for the of fice to which lie aspires. He is an old resideent of Roberts coun ty, arid has never been a earn! date for any public office. Place a cross (X) in the square to the left of his name on the official ballot on the 4th day of .June, and by so doing prove that you are in favor of the square deal arid equal opportunities for all.
