MR. MCKINLEY is fifty-seven years

capacity for work is great. His knowl

He enjoys the confidence of the people,
says the Washington Star. As white
a light beats upon him as upon any
throne, and it discloses nothing to his
disadvantage. He is so much respected
and so well beloved, indeed, that all
men, regardless of party, cordially and
sincerely respond to the toast of "Long
live William McKinley."'
A CHEERFUL idiot in Duluth tele
phoned one of the newspapers that a
certain prominent citizen had dropped
dead on the street. The prominent
citizen's wife saw the item before her
husband returned in the evening and
was prostrated by the shock. Now
the newspaper and the victim of the
harmful joke are looking for the man
who perpetrated the outrage with a
view of punishing him. He is prob
ably one of those fellows who write
anonymous letters to the press or sug
gests that the editor roast someone

Collected at Our
BASELESS DEMOCRATIC PREDICTIONS.
It is worth while to recall, in these
days, the Democratic predictions, sol
emnly made and often believed, of
what would happen if the country
stood by the gold standard. We were
to have a "gold famine/' The stock
of the yellow metal being insufficient
for the commercial transactions of the
world, a scramble for it was to ensue.
This country would fare worst and
with .declining credit, gold appreciat
ing in value, and falling prices, it was
to flee to free silver as its only rescue.
None of us with brains enough to think
with believed these predictions, but
few even of the best informed thought
ttiat they would be made so supremely
ridiculous by the event.Red Wing
THE NEW MOVEMENT.
The new movement for education in
the South ought to be a successful one,
as it, for the first time, concerns itself
with the education of the illiterate
whites, as well as the negroes. A
PAN-AMERICAN SUNDAY OPENING.
It is reported that the preachers of
Buffalo will take action to enjoin the
Pan-American commissioners from
keeping open on Sunday. This can be
done under the usual Sunday laws
which most states have on their statute
books but which are not enforced be
cause they do not reflect the sentiment
of the more intelligent majority of the
communities. They remain unrepealed
simply because no one has an interest
in their enforcement In nearly every
state in the Union there are laws which
make the selling of anything upon the
first day of the week a penal offense.
Should the preachers of Buffalo at
tempt to enforce these laws in the ease
of the exposition they would not only
incur but would deserve the reproba
tion of all sober-minded men. This
exhibition is not a business, but xs a
universal instructor. To visit its muse
ums, its art galleries or its horticul
tural department would perhaps be as
conducive to reverent meditations as
to attend a Buffalo church and listen
to a more or less labored sermon of
church dogma St. Paul Globe
THE REAL PRINCIPLE.
A "high protectionist' is a man who
is in favor of the levy of a prohibitive
duty on all foreign products. This
policy works to the detriment of the
public for it leaves the home consumer
wholly at the mercy of the producers
most of whom have formed trusts and
combinations wholly removing a'l
home competition The true protec
tionist and Republican, as we under
stand it, is one who believes in the im
position of a duty only on such goods
and at such a rate as will place the
home oroducer on an equal footing
with his foreign competitor and the
removal of such part of the duty as
may be in excess of this difference in
the cost of production or in the re
moi al of the entire duty in the case of
such articles as can be produced as
cheap or cheaper than they can be pro
duced elsewhere.Freeborn Co Times.

permanent board of seven members
was provided for at the recent educa
tional conference. This is not yet ap.
pointed, but the intention is, as soon
as it is, to begin a crusade in the in
terest of public schools in every county
in the South. Increased school appro
priations are most wanted at first, and
public sentiment is the first thing to
be roused in the South. Such a cam
paign jg something which might ex
cite some of our wealthy men to gifts.
It will take away some striking feat
ures of the South to educate the moun
tain whites, but nothing else will more
help to solve the need for industrial
help there.Minneapolis Times.
THE TIMES' OBJECT.
Editor MacDonald, of the St. Cloud
Times, professes to be very anxious to
have some Republican from his city
enter the congressional race in this
district. The Alexandria Post-News
"tips off" his hand as follows: "We
greatly regret that the Times will not
have the chance this coming campaign
to coax into the field one of its fellow
townsmen for the sake of outrageously
abusing him when fully a candidate,
for it is generally understood that
Judge Searle prefers the dignity and
more congenial duties of his present
position and that Senator Brower will
again represent Stearns and Benton in
the senate. Mr. Brower will some
day, his friends are confident, be
congress, but they say he prefers not
to give up his law practice just yet as
his firm, Stewart & Brower, is on the
crest of the prosperity wave." Wa
