A WINTERSET MAN
Named for Democratic Man Named for Candidate for Treasurer of South Dakota
From the Brule, South Dakota index we clip the following concerning Charles Tidrick, brother of Lee and Hoyt Tidrick, who was nominated for State Treasurer by the fusion forces.
We have been collecting a few items that may concern the voters of South Dakota concerning the life and business career of countrymen and nominee for State Treasurer on the state ticket. Mr. Tidrick was born at Winterset, Iowa, May 24th, 1863, this date being that of the birth of Queen Victoria, but that is all he has in common with the English as he holds diametrical opposite views concerning her policy in the Transvaal and her policy towards dependencies.
He was graduated from the high school of Winterset in the class of ‘79. He attended college in Indianola two years and entered the state University at Iowa City and remained three years. Came to South Dakota in 1884 in the employ of E. M. Slagle & Co., dealers and lumber and coal of Alton, Sioux county, Iowa.
He first came to Brule county in ‘90 near here, coming permanently in ’93. Since then has been engaged in land, loan and insurance, farm in stock business.
He has a large state acquaintance. He was elected Recorder of Sioux county, Iowa in 1888 on the Democratic ticket when Harrison carried the county by 500 majority, is majority being 400. He is at present United States Commissioner, and is also a large owner in the electric plant of Chamberlain. He has home there, which is presided over by Mrs. Tidrick, a lady of culture, with 3 young Queens to bless the same. Should he be defeated, (which he will not) he will endure it with the same Christian fortitude characteristic to all Democrats.
