say things during the campaign
that we will wish to retracu iunnediat ely
afterwards. our zeal for a candidate
not lead us to set up false claims
that must be abandoned after election
nor to call his
opponent hard names i'or
which we ovist afterwards apologize.
Principles are just as sacred after
election as before, and we do not be
lieve in chaaymgour views simply to
curry favor with tho victorious party
who perhaps hold their office through
the nse of spurious and fraudulent
tickets. Would any paper be looked
upon with any degree of respect that
would change froiii one part to an
other to be with the one in pov ey? The
case is anaiagous where a newspaper
supports its candidates through a
campaign and then wheels about
after election end upholds tho success
ful candidates of the opposition. The
causes that led us to support an inde
pendent ticket in the late campaign,
still exist and the principles underlying
those causes are pot changed one whit
and why should we say thetwewero
wrong if we do hot believe we were.
This explanation seems almost unneces
sary as it is ordinarily supposed lobe a
man's own business how ho conducts
his newspaper, yet there are certain

TIMBER IN DAKOTA
fW. E. Brokemru: in Dakota Farmer.]
There is no discussion as to the need
of planting timber in Dakota. We all
feel the need of it, and each one that
has a few trees growing on his home
stead feels proud of the growth they
are making in our new ground. The
problem is solved. We will do it, is
tho resolution of many with whom we
My past experience with some of the
best natives has not met my expecta
tions, and yet, as the soil gets in better
condition to give nourishment to the
roots, while our dry atmosphere is sap
ping the vitality from the top, all may
be well for the hardiest.
The black walnut, one of the most
valuable hard wood trees where it wil)
stand the clunate, should have another
trial by planting it among other trees
that will give it protection for a few
years. I see the tma that survived
the first year in J. K. Miller's grove,
one mile west of Huron, are looking
healthy and making a good growth.
And 1 think by planting the walnut in
the box elder row where the trees are
two or three feet high, and where the
ground is in good cultivation, that wt
may have fine walnut groves in future.
If there are walnuts to be had this fall
I thiuk I will try it once more.
It is now time that we should begin
to plant tho valuable conifers, and it
we can have the best natives grow in
our soil, what is to hinder us from hav

in the future? Nothing, nothing but
