The ad vi -i'1-v board of this union has just held, a meeting and it has selected the candidates on the state tickets, without any partisan or personal bias, as is said by the board. A- to the members of congress. the board makes an equal division between the two parlies, and indorses tin- election of K W Martin and A K Lee. It indorses the election of the republican nominee for governor, over the fusion candidate, Itnrr Lien For lieutenant governor both candidates are Indorsed. O. C. Ilerg. republican candidate for secretary of state, receives the indorsement of the board, as does also .lohn Scli.amber for state traesiirer. The hoard makes no distinction between the candidates for state auditor in the presence of .1. D. K.eves and F. .1. Tracy. and it takes the same course with reference to the landidates of public instruction by indorsing K K. Collins and Miss M. H. Aasved For attorney general both John L. I'yle and A. 1-1 Hitchcock stand on an eipial footing w'itb the board, and the same is true with David Fast man and ICdinimd Cook, w ho are the lantUdatos for commissioner of school and public lands. In the matter of blacklisting the candidates, the republiian party has but one candidate who is not. indorsed by the union, and the fusion ist s have four. One of the ineinlnus of the board states that the union had gained strength in many of the counties in Hie stale ami maintained that the vote would be large. He said that the union would be able to cast lit b ast between two thousand and three thousand votes this year.

MARTIN S STATEMENT. .My attention is called to the frequent publication of a newspaper article in which it is alleged that in li-fll I slat, d to a committee lrom four Lalior L'nions that their stale of wages was too high, aud favored a reduction of wages from $3.51) to $1.75 per day. The statement, is wholly false. I never made such a btatembut to a committee, or to anyone at any time, and never-entertained such views; no committee ever waited upon me in connection wit h the mining business of the South Dakota Mining Company, known as the "Annie Creek Company." I never attended any of the sessions of such committees and I had nothing whatever to do with the scale of wages of that company. I never reduced wages, or encouraged the reduction of wages, either professionally or personally; 1 have always favored maintaining oar present standards. Personally I have employed a good many miners at different times during the past twenty years; have always been glad to agree to P?5" the standard wages, three dollars aud three dollars and fifty cents per day, and have paid them whether my enterprises have been successful or unsin-cssf ul.
