Newspapers have been hit hard by

President Wilson was notified Sat
urday that the democrats had nomi
nated him for re-election, and although
taken by surprise managed to de
liver a lengthy speech.
The bill appropriating $35,000 to
erect a memorial to John Ericsson, in
ventor of the Monitor, was recently
signed by President Wilson. The hon
or is worthily bestowed.
"Cyclone" Davis of Texas says that
the country is going to the dogs. But
then Mr. Davis was recently defeated
for re-election as congressman-a't
large from the Lone Star state.
Germany has disavowed any un
friendly intention in the submarine
attack on the American steamer, Owe
go, several weeks ago, and has sub
mitted a statement of fact which is ex
pected to close the case.
A phonograph company with re
markable generosity offers to give
newspaper publishers a dozen double
disc records in return for advertising
space. Editors who enjoy doing "busi
ness for a song" are eagerly accepting
No further application for the dis
charge of students the national
guard on the border will be consid
ered accoiding to orders by the -war
department. And there is no valid
reason why an exception should be
made in their case.
Dwyer, the democratic nominee for
governor, appears to be a glutton for
punishment. He is determined to stay
in the runningif running it can be

of his party offered him an opportuni

Anything for publicity. A revival

"Colonel Bob Ingersoll once re

Journal, "If I owned Hell and Texas,
I would live in Hell and rent Texas

A few of the boys at the border
probably feel the same way about it,
but the colonel may have since
changed his mind.
When the Adamson eight-hour day
bill was being considered by the sen
ate a plea that station agents, tele
graph operators and section men be
granted some relief also in the line of
shorter hours was made by Senator
Nelson. They are entitled to as much
consideration us the tram operators,
but they won't get it.
Postmaster General Burleson has
announced that every postal employe
who is with the troops at the border,
will, immediately upon his discharge
from the military service, be assigned
to the position he held before he was
mustered into army service. An an
nouncement of this kind is unneces
sary. The American people would
never stand for a policy that would
deprive a government employe of his
position because of having been called
into the military service of his coun
The validity of the new "dry" or
dinance recently adopted by Duluth
voters is to be tested in the courts,
and the case will be interesting. Du
luth is a city of the first class,and the
legislature has never delegated the
right to vote upon the liquor question
to cities of this class, while by speci
fic legislation it has delegated this
right to towns, villages and cities of
the fourth class and to counties. The
"wets" contend that the city was with
out authority to vote on the question
at all. The fact that Duluth has a
home rule charter may complicate
the case, although it contains no spe
cific provision governing the local op
A state that has no central highway
commission cannot share in the fed

E. R. Lawton has sold the Isanti
News to Fred Guderian, former pub
lisher of the Cambridge North Star.
Mr. Lawton has always published a
clean-cut, high-grade newspaper and
he is himself the soul of honor. The
Union regrets that he intends to lo
cate in California. But he people of
Isanti are fortunate in securing Fred
Guderian to take Mr. Lawton's place.
Vance McCormick, chairman of the
democratic national committee, is not
alarmed by Colonel Roosevelt stump
ing in Maine for Hughes. In fact he
says it won't effect the campaign there
in the least. You see when McCor
mick was the progressive candidate
for governor of Pennsylvania, Roose
velt campaigned for him, and yet he
(McCormick) failed of election. But
what does he expect? Even a Roose
velt cannot perform miracles.
W. R. Tait, once active in demo
cratic circles in Beltrami and sur
rounding counties, is taking part in
the Maine campaign under the direc
tion of the national democratic com
mittee. If reports that glow with
confidence of success are what the
committee is looking for they have
picked an artist.Bemidji Sentinel.
This may account for the report
which recently emanated! from the
national headquarters' of the demo
cratic party to the effect that pros

Is there a graft somewhere in the
building of concrete bridges? The
Fairmont Independent sees reason to
question some of the expenditures
made for building such bridges and
cites a bridge constructed by Frank
Wade of that city 230 feet long ana
20 feet wide. The Independent says
Mr. Wade prepared the plans and
kef)t an accurate account of the
structure and says that it was only
$800. Other bridges not as long let
by contract cost over $7,000. A tre
mendous difference and one worthy
of investigation by every county in
the state.Mapleton Enterprize.
Any school boy ought to know that
a concrete bridge 230 feet in length
and 20 in breadth cannot be built for
$800. But such absurd stories will
