!*V*K SAMPSON FOR ATTORNEY GEN ERAL. The candidacy of Henry E. Samp ion for attorney general has been re ceiving favorable mention through the editorial columns of the Bystand er. Mr. Sampson is not only a law yer of ability, but his years of active service as assistant attorney general makes of him the leading candidate for attorney general. It is not the purpose of the By stander to tell its readers how to vote, or for whom to vote, but we do believe that it is the duty of every good newspaper, vitally interested in the advancement of its readers, not only to keep their readers informed on the leading events of the day, but also to give them the advantage of the information which comes from an acquaintance with the different candi dates seeking political office. As a public news gatherer the editor often comes into personal contact with the men seeking political office and se cures reliable information con ing them. This information should be furnished to its readers, so that they...

*fS- Jf fWW-\ 1 —are being built In tho SHIPS NOW BEING BUILT FOR UNCLE SAM'S NAVY Uncle Sam has gone into the fur business. He says the gross revenue is not yet aB large as that which he obtains from his better-known busi ness—that of Belling postage stamps —but that the net profits are a whole lot bigger and, Just as a side line, it's not bad at all. Uncle Sam was forced to go into the fur business because his official hunters were turning in so many skins of predatory wild animals that they threatened to clutter up all the government buildings in Washington. To relieve the situation the depart ment of agriculture evolved a plan for selling at public auction all the pelts that are not required for scien tific purposes. In four months 1,399 pelts useful for manufacture into furs, muffs, or rugs, were sold in four Bales for $2,552, the last sale yielding $1,155.65. The skins disposed of include those of the coyote, bobcat, skunk, badger, opossum, lynx, gray fox, kit fox, rac coon, c...
