Hon. Usher L. Burdick, Progressive Republican candidate for Governor of North Dakota, addressed a large audience at Arthur last Saturday eve. Mr. Burdick clearly demonstrated that he is an orator of fine ability stating his platform so that everyone knows just the new laws that should be enacted and placed on our statutes, and those that he thinks should be repealed. He believes in a single tax on agricultural land, this is something that should meet with the approval of every resident farmer of our state. At the primary election in June 1910 he received 29422 votes for Lieut. Governor. J. B. Sharp 22766. Burdick's majority 6676. Mr. Burdick presided over the senate during the impeachment trial of Judge J. F. Cowan and received much merited praise for the able and just manner in which he conducted the trial. The writer has known Mr. Burdick for the past ten years and knows him to be a man of splendid character and of exceptional good morals and beyond a doubt a leader in the upbuilding of our great commonwealth. I sincerely hope the republican voters of this state will, on the 24th day of June, nominate him for their governor, for I am sure he will prove worthy of the office.
