Ono of our old friends brought us
Uio editorial from tho "Oil World"
-which Is printed clsowhero In this
issuo. It appealed to him as repre
senting a certain class of people,
somo of whom are found In North
IPlattc. Wo asked him If wo might
have tho editorial and print It and ho
consonted. Probably none of our
readers bolong to this claBs but all
will bo ablo to rocognlzo tho de
scription of some of their acquaintances.
Tho outstanding fact of tho primary
'election was Its falluro to do tho vory
thing for which It was hold. Tho ob
ject of a primary Is tho selection of
party candidates. Tho American gov
ernment Is founded on political party j
control and without political parties
it 1b not posslblo to concolvo of con
gress. Tho only way a party can bo
hold responsible for candidates Is
when those candidates aro choBon by
mombors of tho party. It la ovldont
from an analysis of tho oloctlon re
turns that a largo numbor of demo
crats voted tho republican ticket In
order to accomplish somo purposo of
tholr own. Tho main contests Boomed
to bo on congressman, Bhorlff and
coramlBSlonor. Many domocrnta voted
tho republican ticket bocauso thoro
T. C. PATTERSON
B. & L. Building
was nomeono on that tloket whom
they wished to dofuat. That is the
falluro of tho primary as It now ex
litn. The republicans have nominooa
of which thoy do not approve as a
party but who woro put on the re
publican tlckat by tho democrat. It
is probublo that most of thoso demo
crats will vote for democratic candi
dates In tho elections.
Saturday afternoon tho editor in
company with W. T. Wilcox, made a
trip west Into Keith county, taking
the Lincoln Highway going and re
turning on tho south side of tho South
Platto most of tho wny. Wo stopped
for an hour In Sutherland and spent
most of tho timo In tho Courier 01-
flco chatlng with Editor Dunn. Tho
day was bright and warm when wo'
started but wo wero chasod homo by a
rain storm which looked quite threat-1
onlng at times. Tho valley Is in flno.
.... . i . i . i
Hiiiipo. wo imbBuii many iioiuh ol corn
which woro In tassel and somo in silk.
Tho best looking plcco wo saw on tho
trip was Just as wo camo into Suther
land from tho west. On tho table
south of that city wo saw sections
which reminded us of tho moro fortilo
parts of eastern Noraska or of Iowa
FioldB from sixty to "ono hundrod
acres woro not uncommon. Every
stalk looked flno and was as green
as corn can bo. Boots In tho valley
looked good. Alfalfa was showing up
woll In most fiolds. Sovoral farmers
woro making tho second cutting while
in some fiolds tho plants woro in
full bloom, probably ueing sayed for
Hood. Small grain was all in shock
with no signs of any having boon
threshed. In ono flold wo saw a head
er at vor( on somo Bhort spring
wheat. At ono farm "wo woro permit
ted to look into tho potato crop and
found a big yield of flno potatoes In
tho two hills wo examined. Tho corn
on tho upland showed up about as
woll as that under irrigation but on
the wholo did not seem to bo qulto
as far along. W. T. Is a good driver
and wo promlsod to tako him for a
rldo whon wo got our now car.
