well qualified for the office to
which the voters at the Primary
selected him his previous splen
did record in the administration
or that office is ample proof to
the voters of Roberts County that
in casting their votes for Mr.
Minder they will be assured of
electing an efficient officer to one
of the most, important offices in
the County.
The Honorable J. H. McCoy,
now a member of the Supreme
Court of South Dakota, who dur
ing the time Mr. Minder was
^herifl was Circuit Judge and
whose unsolicited opinion should
he a guide to the average voter,
sneaks of him under date of April
29th, 1912 as follows:
"I am glad to learn that you
are again a candidate for Sheriff.
You can say to the fellows that
I regird you as on of the best
Sheriffs 1 ever knew and one who
was always looking out to save
money for the County wherever
possible. 1 have no objection to
you using this letter.
bounty Judge
This is the new picture of Hal
Knight and a mighty good one,
but it isn't any better than the
man it represents, for Hal is un
uuestionably one of the best, men
in Roberts county. Hal Knight
was nominated by the republicans
at the -lune primeries for County
Judge. He was born in 1877, at
Gleneoe, Minn., and received his
garly education at Stevens Sem
inary, graduating there in 1897.
That fall he went to the Univer
sity of Minnesota, graduating
from the academic department, in
1901. Returning there in 1903 to
complete his law course and was
admitted to the practice of law in
South Dakota by the Supreme
Court, He came to Roberts coun
ty in 1901, and has resided here
since, engaged in the land and
loan business with his father, the
late A. M. Knight. His fine edu
cation has fitted him for the office
of county judge in a manner that
no county judge was ever fitted
before in Roberts county.
Clerk of Courts
Dave Stevens, the present
county register of deeds and re
publican nominee for clerk of
courts, is a modest man, which is
proven by his general conduct and
by the fact that this is the first
season his picture has ever ap
pered in a newspaper. But
what he lacks in conceit he makes
up in ability. Dave has been a
and satisfactory official in the
clerk of courts office as he has in
the register of deeds office.
County Treasurer stfeTJ.
"Honest" Iver Johnson of One
Road township was selected by
the republican voters of the coun
ty as the party candidate for the
office of county treasurer. Mr.
Johnson is a man of ripe experi
ence and has also served Roberts
county in the legislature. His
public record is 18 karat. He is
an old resident of the county and
is well known to the majority of
the people of Roberts county. If
elected to the office of county
treasurer he will make a through
and capable county official.
Register of Deeds
John O. Swenumson of Peever
i.s the republican nominee for the
office of Register of Deeds for
Roberts County. Mr. Swenumson
received a very large vote from
the people of the county as an ex
pression of confidence in his abil
ity to fill the office for which he
aspired. He is a middle-aged man,
well educated and fully competent
to fill the office of register of
deeds, is careful and thorough in
everything he undertakes, the
work of the office will be kept up
to the present high standard un
der his management.
