SWAT THE ROORBACK
The editor of the Standard is
not a roorback artist, nor does
he approve of the eleventh-hour
tactics indulged in by some of
the politicians of this city—the
Foss-Marvick -Jorgenson Prest

particular.
There are certain things in a
political campaign that a news

tion we cite our readers to the
fact that whatever we had to
say regarding the machinations
of our political opponents was
said in our issue of last week
in plenty of time to give the
gentlemen whose acts were criti
cised an opportunity to publicly
enter a denial of our statements
before the day when they shall
have to go before the voters of
Roberts county, asking for their
suffrages.
The accused have entered no
denial—they can enter none.
They may make charges, and
counter-charges they can, and
undoubtedly will, go as far with
their lying insinuations as they
wish to. For, verily, it is the
eleventh hour, and there is none
to say them nay.
But the people can, and un
doubtedly will, swat the roor
back.
The argument that is being
used against the candidacy of
Thomas Mani for states attorney
to the effect that he is
an Indian and that if elected
he would be likely to give
the Indians the best of it
in the prosecution of criminal
capes, is unfair and un-American.
As well might the argument be
advanced that if Jorgenson is
elected he would give the Nor
wegians the best of it in matters
of a "criminal nature, or that
McKenna would favor the Irish
because they happen to be
his own people. The Stand
ard does riot believe that either
one of these gentlemen would
aid in or consent to the perver
sion of justice simply because
the man accused of a criminal
action happens to be of their
race or religion. Men, let's be
fair-minded,
else. It is a poor rule, you
know, that won't work both
ways.
Every voter in the Sesond con
gressional district,' which in

It would be a crime against
the taxpayers to place an in
competent lawyer in the states
attorney's office. C. R. Jorgen
son, who presumes to ask the
voters of Roberts county to elect
him to that most important of
fice, made a record in the last
term of circuit court which
proves his utter incompetency as
a lawyer. Out of seven cases
brought before the court he lost
seven cases, failing to get to the
jury with a single one of them.
In view of the fact that the
presiding judge is a personal
friend of Jorgensoirs, it is only
fair to presume that the manner
in which the latter prepared and
presented his cases was about as
bad as it could possibly have been
done by a first year student at a
law school.
As a square deal for a square
man, the republican voters of
this district owe it to Mr. Burke
to give him an endorsement at
the primary next Tuesday. As
an assurance of further good
service at the hands of a
man who is experienced, who
has the acquaintance, the
a a
everyone should vote for
Chas. H. Burke. It is a busi
ness deal with the people to se
cure a business-like representa
tive, and in order to do this it is
really necessary to vote for
Burke. Cast your own ballot
for the man who has always
made good and ask your neigh
bors and the young voters to do
likewise and vote for Chas. H.
Burke for congressman next
Tuesday.
The officers of the Citizens
National Bank. have wagered
large sums of money that John
L. Minder, the candidate put up
by the machine, will be the re
publican nominee for sheriff of
Roberts county on Tuesday, June
4. In other words, the officers
of this bank are betting that
they know how YOU are going
to vote. When you go into the
voting booth on Tuesday, June 4,
and are alone with your con
cience a id your lead pencil,
mark your ballot in such a way
as to prove to these bankers that
they DIDN'T KNOW HOW
YOU WERE GOING TO VOTE.
Orville A. Johnson, who tills
the soil for a living up in White
Rock township, asks your sup
port in his candidacy for the
office of sheriff. He is a farmer
—not a perennial office-seeker—
and has never before asked for
nor held a county office. His
honesty is unquestioned—his
qualifications are of the best.
You will do yourself and the
county of Roberts an injustice
if you piss his candidacy by
without giving it serious consid
eration. S
When you are requested to
vote for C. R. Jorgenson for
states attorney, ask the person
who makes the request how fhe

trust will betiay a public trust.
The taxpayers of Roberts county
cannot afford to take $ny
chances on Jorgenson. '.
Good judgment and good legal
ability are essential to the proper
conduct of the office of states
attorney. Thomas Mani has
both. He has practiced law be

for the past six years, and has
uniformly successful. He

C. R. Jorgenson had seven
cases up for consideration at
the last term of circuit court,
and failed to get to the jury
with a single one of them. He
is again asking the voters of
Roberts county to elect him
states attorney, and is making
the campaign on his record. Do
ycu think a record of seven cases
in court and seven cases lost is
such as to warrant you in placing
C. R. Jorgenson in charge of the
legal business of Roberts county?
Think it over.
The voters of the Second con
gressional district are going to
see to it that Chas. H. Burke is
given a rousing majority at the
primaries next Tuesday. He has
been unable to take an active
part in his own campaign, owing
to his duties at Washington and
his present illness, but his public
record is such that he should
have no trouble in securing the
endorsement of the people on
June 4.

MISS IVIcQUILUEIN, Sasseton, South Dakota
0. E. LIEN
Republican Candidate for Coun
ty Auditor
The office of county auditor is
one that requires the services of
a man of exceptional abitity,
and it is for this reason that the
Standard favors the candidacy
of 0. E- Lien for this office.
Mr. Lien was born on a farm in
Clayton county, Iowa, in 1869,
and after finishing the eighth
grade work in a country school,
he attended the Lutheran Col
lege at Decorah, Iowa. After
finishing the work at that insti-
tution, he took /a thorough
course in bookkeeping, banking,
commercial law, insurance and
commercial correspondence,
gradusting from the Decorah
Business Institute in 1887. Dur
ing 1888, he was assistant cash
ier of the Citizens' Bank at El
gin, Iowa, and from 1889 to 1893
he was bookkeeper for Lien &
Hanson at Eagle Grove, Iowa.
During the latter year he came
to Roberts county and took up a
homestead. After proving up
on his homestead, Mr. Lien re
turned .to Eagle Grove and went
to work for the C. & N. W.
railroad in the locomotive de
partment, working for that road
as a fireman and engineer for
eight years. In 1901 he came
back to Roberts county, where
he has resided ever since, con
ducting a farm in Lien township
up to 1909. He has been elected
secretary of the Roberts County

Gamble Gave Good Talk.
United States Senator Robert
J. Gan ble delivered an address
at the court house, last Monday
evening, to a large and attentive
audience. The senator indulged
in few flights of fancy, but
gave a good, plain, understand
able talk which made him many
partisans among his hearers.
Senator Gamble will undoubted
ly receive a very substantial en
dorsement in Sisseton next Tues
day, as our citizens realize that
he is the right man in the right
place one of the very best leg
islators who ever represented
the state at the national capital.

HOMELESS FLOATERS
OWN WOftST EHE1Y
simply because they lack that
definate purpose in life—a home
—that carries such an influence
for frugality and integrity. Of
course, there are few people who
have not planned a home some
time or other in their life, be
cause it is human instinct to have
a nest of your own, and good in
tentions are most praiseworthy
but the fact remains nevertheless
that intentions lead to nowhere,
and while you are hesitating the
cost of building material and
labor is rapidly rising. Why not
decide now to become a recog
nized factor in the upbuilding of
our community and start that
home you've been thinking
about? We've gota lot of ideas.
about plans for all sized pocket
books and by building with lum- -x
ber you can start in small and
enlarge as your demands in
creage. Think it over. f-
