FIGHT IS BITTER
Republican State Ticket is
'Named by League and the
Election Campaign is
Bismarck, N. D., Oct. 21. The po-
jkcal battle between the nonparti
san league and its opponents in
creases in bitterness as the time
draws near for the general election
in which voters will name full con
gressional and state tickets in
-. In the gubernatorial contest, Gov
ernor Lynn J. Frazier seeks re-election
on the republican ticket and is
i opposed by S. A. Doyle on the dem
ocratic ticker; The republican tick
et was nominated at the prifnaries
by the nonpartisan league. Inde
pendent republicans opposed to the
league had a hand in framing the
But Two Tickets.
The candidates for congress on
the republican ticket are John M.
Baer in the First district, who was
sent to congress by the league;
George M. Young, in the Second
1 district and John H. Sinclair in the
Third, On the democratic side, Fred
Bartholomew is candidate in the
First district, I. N. Torson in the
Second and Halvor Halvorson in
4 There will be but two state tick
ets in the field, the development of
the " nonpartisan league having
marked the passing of the socialist
state party. For the first time in
many years the prohibitionists have
no candidates for the state office,
and the progressive party, active in
the last three elections, has dis
solved. The league has renominated on
its state ticket all but two of the
officers it elected two years ago.
They are M, P. Johnson and .Charles
uieick, members ot tne railway
' Control Lower House.
A majority of the republican can
didates for the state legislature have
been nominated by the nonpartisan
league. 'In some districts where it
failed to get candidates on the re
publican ballot, the league nomi
nated men on the democratic ticket,
or independently by individual nom
inating petitions. In -the last house
of representatives the league had a
clear majority of about sixty. It
also elected a majority of the sena
tors,, but because of 25 holdovers
was unable tb control the senate.
If it elects less than half of the pres
ent candidates for the state senate
the league will have a working ma
jority in that body. Control of the
lower house is conceded the league.
At the primaries, Frazier was op
posed by John Steen, state treasur
er, who was supported by the anti
league republicans. Frazier re
ceived a majority of more than
15,000 out of 90,000 votes.
The republicans then amalga
mated with the democrats under the
iianie-of the Independent Voters
association in support of S. A.
Doyle, United States' marshal at
Fargo, who was nominated by the
democrats over G. VV. Wilkinson,
recently deposed as postmaster
of Fargo. Wilkinson, sought the
democratic nomination with support
of the league.
Doyle has waged an energetic
campaign, vigorously attacking the
economic program of the league as
embodied in ten proposed constitu
tional amendments to be voted on
this fall. .
These amendments include a sin
gle tax, increase of the state bonded
debt limit from $200,000 to $10,000,
000 in the instance of any single bond
issue; smaller number of signa
tures required on initiative and ref
erendum petitions and the invest
ment of state funds and the opera
tion by the state of any industries

British Labor Gets 1
Behind Wilson for
London, Oct. 21. (British Wire
less Service) In the situation cre
ated by the recent German peace
offer. British labor ranges itself sol
idly behind President Wilson, de
clared Arthur Henderson, the Brit
ish' labor leader, in a speech at a
labor meeting Saturday night. Labor
men should continue to support
President Wilson because his peace
program embodied the war aims of
- organized labor, he declared.
It had become increasingly clear.
Mr. Henderson said, that uncondi
tional surrender on the part of the
rulers of Germany was necessary in
order that the vital interests of the
German people themselves could be

Butler Says That He
Will Keep Coal Yard
Open in Spite of Quiz
City Commissioner Dan Butler,
"president and general manager" of
the municipal coal yard, is back
after several days out of the city.
He says his coal is good in spite of
the reflections that other city com
missioners have been casting upon
it and ordering the city chemist to
analyze it and find out its heating
power and all that.
"The state has given the city
power to operate a coal yard and
we'll operate it," htf says. "I'm
willing to sell "coal to Wattles if
he wants it. The coal is for every
body and I know it's worth the
money because I only have a mar
gin of 40 cents profit on each ton
after paying cost at the mine,
freight, cartage, shrinkage and so
"If the other city commissioners
want the job of running the coal
yard they are welcome to it. There's
a lot of grief connected with it."
Commissioner Ure says the other
city commissioners don't want to
take Butler's job of running it.
Mayor smith iansaid to be wob
bling over into being a champion
of the municipal coal yard.

The original plans for the Skinner Packing plant were for five floors. The management
found it a direct advantage to the Company to increase the plant to eight floors which will
give the Company a larger earning capacity and make it possible to build the plant more
economically per cubic foot.
These eight floors consist of six floors above the ground, the basement and a large sub
basement. The sub-basement will give storage capacity for 3,000,000 pounds of sweet pickled
Fortunately the site of the plant' is located high enough above the large underground
sewer that runs through our land that we can have this cold storage sub-basement and still
have splendid drainage. This sub-basement will be under the entire plant.
It will take less cork insulation and less refrigeration to operate it and will be a great
advantage to the Skinner plant as every experienced packing house man knows.
The Skinner plant will be one of the shl
ing and efficiency standpoint, it will be far in

Over $2,700,000 Worth of This Stock Has Been Sold To Date
We have oversold the entire original issue of stock that we placed on the market in less time than any other company that has been
organized in the middle west. On account of the increase in size of the plant and its earning capacity we are placing on the market an ad
ditional million dollars worth of stock, and of this amount one-third has already been disposed of. There never will again at any price be
offered part cipating stock in the Skinner Packing Company. jThis is your opportunity to purchase a ground floor, full participating stock.
No Promotion Securities Sold Direct by The Company
Our securities are sold direct by the officers and directors of the Company. There is no promotion stock in this Company; its securi
ties are not in the hands of promoters. The stock is being sold at the lowest ninimum expense. To,6ur knowledge there has never been a

Young & Company of Chicago, high grade accountants, the same firm that audit the books of Swift & Co. and Cudahy Packing Co.

of the price paid. However, it' is carried on our books at exactly the price for which it was purchased. There has been no real estate turned
into the Company in lieu of stock.

of our Articles of Incorporation that this stock can never be changed from Participating stock by the vote of the directors or stockholders.
Skinner Plant Essential Industry and so Recognized
No war supply is more necessary than food stuff. The building of "Omaha's Daylight Snow tVhite Independent Packing Plant" repre
sents a real patriotic effort just as the Government is making every effort to increase its facilities for taking care of oods. Particularly is
this true in cold storage. There is such a shortage of cold storage space in this country that the Government is now building a $3,000,000
cold storage plant in Chicago.
Forty per cent of the plant of the Skinner Packing Company represents cold storage space which, located here at the base of the
live stock industry, will be a factor in the winning of the war.
This Plant Direct Interest to Every Shipper to
The Omaha market has suffered from the fact that up to date stockmen have
for finished stuff. As the Skinner Packing Company will handle quality products only, we
finished stuff that we would not be able to pay if we were looking for volume only. For
Company will have an influence on the Omaha market for the benefit of stockman and
tion to the amount of stock we actually purchased.
Less than 50 per cent of , the live stock shipped to the Omaha market, so far this year,
has been slaughtered here and had to be reshipped to other points.
More packing houses are needed. 1
