—Owing to the duties of the editor
as Clerk of the Court and the receipt
of a number of foreclosure notices for

does not come up to its usual standard
in the way of local news this week.
Our ready-print pages however are full
of State and general news.
—The WATCHMAN is first a local pa
per devoted to local interests and local
news, and these claims have first right
to its space. Second, the Republican
party and its principles are given
place, but while the WATCHMAN IS
specially devoted to these local and
political interests, we have other con
victions and beliefs. We believe in
the church and are a frequent listener
to its teachings and contribute some
what to its support and gladly publish
its notices and other matter, but we do
not devote our space as an organ of
that interest. We also believe in tem
perance and so vote, and gladly pub
lish notices and other matter connected
therewith and sometimes discuss its
principles and sometimes contribute in
a more substantial manner to its sup
port, but the WATCHMAN is not special
ly an organ of that interest. Our
space will not permit. When it does
we will cheerfully publish short original
articles on that and other subjects of
general interest but we do not take
kindly to weekly doses of re-prints and
ready made plate matter and use them
as little as possible. We are in sym
pathy with the order of the W. C. T. U.
More, we have not the language to fril
ly express our admiration of the order
and the noble work for which it was
formed to accomplish and do not
blame the mass of its membership be-1
cause some one or two of its members
would drag the order down to a mere
opposition to the WATCHMAN and the
Republican party. We can safely
leave the matter of control to the order
itself and continue to wish it a hearty
God speed.

Thursday morning the mandamus case
of D. Q. Jordan ys. the canvassing Board,
for an alternative writ to compel the
Board to re-convene and canvass the vote
cast for Treasurer, was taken up and fur
ther proceedings in the case postponed un
til July 6th, at Faulkton, when the argu
ment will be heard.
At the same time and place argument
will be heard on an order to show cause
why a writ of mandamus should not issue
compelling the States Attorney to sign the
summons to begin quo warranto proceed
ings in the case of A. A. Faust vs. D. M.
Smith, which he refused to do after
a bond of $500 to indemnify the county
against damage or costs had been given
should Faust fail to proye bv a count of
the legal vote of the county that he is the
legally elected Sheriff. It seems from
Mr. Simmons' action that the Independ
ent party prefer to hold rfflce by virtue of
illegal votes rather than submit to an in
vestigattou mi, merits of the
.v^sSMW. &-<
nil ll1atcl)inan.
In politics the minds of the peopld
should be directed more to measures
than to men, and men should be mea
sured more by their relation to mea
sures than by mere personal qualities.
When man-worship governs, principles
decline and the liberties of the people
become endangered. The Republican
party was born wholly of ideas and
principles, and in its early days it called
from the ranks only those who had
given evidence of their loyalty to prin
ciple. It was thus that the Republican
party became a mighty force in the
world, carrying mankind upward and
onward toward a higher and better civil
ization. The year 1892 mark, an era
from which will date complete vindica
tion and justification of the principles
of protection as exemplified in the
McKinley bill, and thus again as in the
past will this party by fidelity to prin
ciple and by wisdom in its application
prove itself worthy of the support and
confidence of all good citizens.

NEW YORK, June 11.—Editorial ex
pressions of opinion taken from the pa
pers all over the country show that the
Republican journals are all in line for
Harrison. Those which support Blaine
generally still hold to their belief that
the Maine statesman was the strongest
man before the convention but believe
that Harrison will be re-elected.
There is a good deal of difference of
opinion among Democratic papers as
to the nomination. The New York
Herald declares that lhe Democrats
must put away both Cleveland and
Hill to defeat Harrison. The New
York Times says the Democrats at least
have the satisfaction of opposing a
man whom they respect. The New
York State Zeitung believes the con
vention might have made a worse
choice. The Boston Globe thinks
Harrison will be easy to beat while the
Post thinks he is the logical Republi
can candidate. The Philadelphia
Times thinks Harrison is a strong can
didate and warns the Democrats that
their work is cut out for them.
The St. Louis Republic declares that
the campaign will be very bitter, but
makes no prediction as to the result.
The New Orleans papers think Har
rison is harder to beat than Blaine.
The Louisville Courier Journal says
Hanrsonis beyond question the strong
est candidate the Republicans could
have nominated and adds that Ried is
an added factor of strength to the ticket.
Altogether the Democratic papers,
with few exceptions, seem disposed to
concede considerable strength to the
Minneapolis ticket, but without excep
tion declare it can be beaten in No
vember^with proper nominees.—Ar
gus Leader,
The Aberdeen News correctly states
the question in the following:
If the Democrats and Independents
ot South Dakota desires fusion the Re
publicans will lend them all the assist
ance at their command. A fusion this
year would so completely demoralize
the Independent party in this state
that its leaders for revenue only, would
be staggered to death—politically.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press has sprung
a pleasant surprise on its large family of
readers by making a great reduction in the
price of its Daily and Sunday editions
when a year's subscription is prepaid.
The new rates are as follnws, payment to
be made strictly in advance: Daily and
Sunday, one year, $8.50 Daily without
Sunday, one year, $7 Sunday only, one
year, $1.50. Rates for a less period remain
the same aB before. This is a reduction of
from 15 to 25 per cent, and it means a
boom in circulation for the Pioneer Press.
