The Minot Election. Minot, the boom town of the Manitoba road and the point from which Bismarck will soon have a railroad, held its charter election on Saturday last, and it would have done the heart of the Bismarck old-timer good tohave seen the balloters zig-zag to the polls with the flourish of whoop and a fringe of enthusiasm. There was two can­ didates for mayor, one a gambler and saloonkeeper—J. H. Scofield—and the other a hardware dealer named Scott. As will be seen by the following list of officers elected, tne town does not go much on hard­ ware: J. H. Scofield was elected mayor, P. N. McNamara, treasurer, and N. A. Mott, E. H. Belyea, Eugene Coleman,P.H. Fields, William Brunelle, John Wood, alderman.
