Lest You Forget
This week we again publish
the letter written by L. Win.
Foss, of Sisselon, to S. Houg
en, of Wilmot. in which the lat
ter is called to a small select
meeting," "for the purpose of
looking over and discussing the
political situation." the deliber
ations of which meeting are to
be "kept 'mum' as far as possi
ble." There is no question
about the genuineness of the
letter, as it nas not been denied
by the party who wrote it—L.
Wm. Foss-nor by the party who
received it-L. S. Hougen. 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 him.
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.

Republcian Candidate for Coun
ty Judge.
Hal .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.
Republican Candidate for Regis
ter of Deeds.
As the campaign approaches
its close. Frank W. Murray, re
publican candidate for register of
deeds, appears more and more to
be a winner.
The county is to be congratu
lated on this fact, as his nomina
tion will be equivalent to elec
tion, and we will be fissured a
county officio- for the next two
years who will be capable, indus
trious and conscientious. Frank
has made a clean campaign
throughout, has not indulged in
any mud-slinging at his opponents
arid has made many friends.

vacation during any of the years
that he bias been elected by
the people, at a time when con

and all party men of whatever
party admit that he is a man of

advantage of a temporary illness
to bring outside spellbinders and

Republican Candidate for Coun

One Ro.ad township wi,ll be
represented on the republican
primary ballot, this year, by Iver
•I. Johnson, who is a candidate
for county treasurer, Air. .John
son settled on a homestead in One
Road township in 1900, and has
lived on it ever since. During
his first year of residence in the
township, he wsa elected a mem
ber of the school board, has been
r-elcected at each1 succeeding
election, and is at the present
time treasurer of the school board
and also the township board,—
pretty good evidence of the fact
that his neighbors have complete
confidence in his honesty and in
tegrity. He as twice represented
Roberts county in the state leg
islature, arid is honored and re
spected bv all who have the pri
vilege or his acquaintance. Mr.
Johnson is a man of good educa

would make a painstaking and ef

elected he will .give the office his
personal supervision.
