Not Making Much of a Hit.
The new governor is not making
much of a hit with the country people
by advocating the purchase of all the
land between the old and new state
capitol by the state on which to erect
a new state building costing two or
three million dollars. The country
folk are getting tired of buying St.
Paul property at ten times its actual
value, merely to beautify the saint
city and satisfy a few twin city
Tariff experts should turn their
attention to a peculiar situation on
the north Pacific coast. In the past
few weeks the prices of lumber have
advanced from fifty cents to two
dollars a thousand, and the prices for
shingles have dropped from twenty
five to forty cents a thousand. The
duty on lumber wtas reduced thirty
seven per cent, and the duty on
shingles was advanced sixty per cent.
Some way the market does not appear
to be logical.Mississippi Valley
An Absurd Claim
Gov. Eberharfc's friends are ad
vancing the argument that he is "the
logical candidate" for governor next
fall. Why BO? The republicans of
the state have never expressed them
selves as to his candidacy for
governor. Who among the delegates
who voted for his nomination for
lieutenant governor gave a single
thought to the possibility of his suc
cession to the governor's office dur
ing this term? He is no more "the
logical candidate" than is Jacobson
and the latter's friends are making no
such absurd claim.Brainerd Trib

He is making good as the editor of a
metropolitan newspaper at Duluth
and would get no additional honofe- as
private secretary to the governor and
would have had to do considerable
trimming to meet the requirements.
And Charley is not a success as a
trimmer.Elk River Star-News.
Will Not Bedraggle the Judicial Ermine.
Justice O'Brien of the state supreme
court is entitled to a large credit
mark. He has promptly and for all
time put a quietus on the proposition
of the kitchen cabinet and others
interested to make him the democratic
candidate for governor. He says it
is unseemly and exceedingly bad taste
for a member of the court to engage
in partisan politics. If he sticks to
his determination the republicans
might well return the compliment by
endorsing him for the position which
he now holds. It would have been
better had Judge Collins once upon a
time taken the same views of the pro
prieties of a member of the supreme
Duluth Coming Into Her Own.
Duluth now gives fair promise of
coming into her own. For years she
has been content to boast of her com
ing greatness and all the while play
second fiddle to the twin cities. Her
wholesale interests have been dictated
largely by twin city houses who
operate branch houses there or are
interested in some other way. The
railroads have discriminated against
the city and her great advantage from
her waterways has been offset in one
way or another. At last some of the
big ones have tired of this thing and
are going to come out into the open
and fight for their rights. They are
raising a fund of $20,000 to carry on
the war with the railroads, the News
Tribune has exposed Michigan street
methods and a determined effort to
get at the bottom of the high cost of
living there is being made. Duluth
is bound to be the metropolis of the
north countrywhen it is to attain to
this position depends entirely upon
its own efforts. We all want to see
Duluth win.Aitkin Age.
