'THE BEE: OtyAHA, TUESDAY. OCTOBER 22, 1918. - i- NORTH DAKOTA NONPARTISAN FIGHT IS BITTER Republican State Ticket is 'Named by League and the Election Campaign is Energetic. 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 North Dakota. -. 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 iemocratic ticket. 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 the Third. 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 commission. ' 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. Amendments Attacked. 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 not denied a private individual or corporation. t British Labor Gets 1 Behind Wilson for German Surrender 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 safeguarded.

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 on. "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. Norfolk First Town in Omaha District to Give Final Bond Report The first district in Nebraska to make a final report on the Fourth Liberty loan drive to the Omaha headquarters was the Eightth dis trict, whose chairman was C.

From all indications it now ap pears that every county in Ne braska, with the possible exception of four, have gone over the top.

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 meats. 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 All of the latest and best ideas as to efficien plans for the building have been pronouncet The plant is located on the Company' present Swift plant on the South pide. ..

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 $3,000,000 cold storage plant in Chicago. Forty per cent of the plant of the Skinner Packing Company represents cold storage space which, located here at the base of the live stock industry, will be a factor in the winning of the war. This Plant Direct Interest to Every Shipper to The Omaha market has suffered from the fact that up to date stockmen have for finished stuff. As the Skinner Packing Company will handle quality products only, we finished stuff that we would not be able to pay if we were looking for volume only. For Company will have an influence on the Omaha market for the benefit of stockman and tion to the amount of stock we actually purchased. Less than 50 per cent of , the live stock shipped to the Omaha market, so far this year, has been slaughtered here and had to be reshipped to other points. More packing houses are needed. 1 Many successful independents together with the Big Five is what has given Chicago first place. he Skinner plant, will help put the Omaha market where it rightfully belongs N ' i " Of j j Jjj if fc -1 -i IffP " fill Pri f$w?
