A news item says that the president
will issue pardons to 12 federal pris
oners, but it fails to say whether they
are anarchists, I. W. W., bolshevists
or other terrorists.
It is evident that the national wo
men's party is getting but little en
couragement from democratic states.
Out of 22 states which have ratified
suffrage 18 are republican.
St. Paul Dispatch: Somebody de
plores the passing of the historic hash
as a dependable number on the menu.
The explanation is easy. Nobody has
enough meat left over to make hash.
Charlie Chaplin has been suggest
ed for the next president of the United
States. Well, Chawles would make a
better chief executive than most of
the others who have been mentioned.
Some legal authorities tell us that
the war is over and others that it is
not. It all depends, we presume, upon
the object which each interpreter of
the law has in view. So take your

According to Professor Dryden of
the Oregon agricultural college there
are a dozen hens at the institution

The question is, upon what do these
feathered queens feed?
At this time it does not look as if
Geneva would get the capital of the
league of nations. Belgium wants it
on the ground that Switzerland refused
to give up her neutrality during the
war. Little Belgium Is doubtless en
titled to the honor and her request
should be granted.

Tiill Bryan contemplates crowding him
self to the front in the affairs of his
party this year. While he is not as
-yet an avowed candidate for the presi

would be no surprise. Poor nut.
Bull fights, which have been pro
hibited in Mexico for the past two
years, will again be resumed, Butcher
Carranza having signed a bill
passed by the Mexican congress
to that effect. This goes to show that
Mexico, instead of becoming more
civilized, is fast receding into a state

A woman in Norwich, N. Y., whom
doctors for 80 days endeavored to
arouse from her slumbers, was at last
brought back to consciousness by the
playing of a phonograph. Well, we
are inclined to the opinion that the
noises which issue from some phono
graphs would be sufficient to wake
even the dead.
Newspapers published in Egypt have
been warned by the government to re
frain from printing matter likely to ex
cite the public under penalty of sus
pension. This example should be fol

thousands of papers containing anar
chistic propaganda are permitted to
go through fhe mails.
Harvey's Weekly: Mr. Balfour is
quite right in his expression of confi
dence that the American nation is not
going to abandon the high ideals of
liberty and peace to which it has hith
erto shown so great devotion. No
this nation has been true to those
ideals for more than a century and a
third, and it will not forsake them for
any delusive covenant of a league of
Over in Great Britain the nurses
have organized a trade union and
agreed that, in the event of a strike,
activities be directed against the em
ployers and not the patients. But
.wherein lies the difference? If they
strike the patients must suffer wheth
er it is directed against the employers
or themselves. It is evident that these
nurses need the attention of an
It is authoritatively reported that
the exiled anarchists are traveling de
luxe on the army transport, Buford,
en route to the land of the bolsheviki,
although they are compelled to observe
strict army regulations. Why these
infernal scoundrels are permitted to
travel in luxury is not clearly appar
ent, but it is in keeping with the gov
ernment's methods of treating enemies
of the country. Everyone of those hu
man cobras should be ringbolted to the
deck and fed on hardtack and water.
It is charged that anti-American
doctrine is being taught"by some of
the teachers in the Minneapolis public
schools and a searching investigation
has been ordered by the board of edu
cation. There is scarcely a doubt that
anti-American propaganda is being
disseminated in some of the public
schools of the country, and boards of
education cannot be too careful in se
lecting instructors. Teachers are
scarce and radicals are taking advan
tage of the situation to enter schools
in a pedagogic capacity.
Under the "watchful waitii.g" and
slow working policy of the United
States government it is no wonder
that Mexico is well supplied with arms.
Not until a few days ago did Secretary
Lansing issue an order revoking all
licenses issued prior to September 30,
1919, for the shipment of arms into
Mexico. And this despite the unrest
and turmoil which has existed in Mex
ico for months, Carranza's antagonism
to the United States and the murder
of American citizens. It begins to look
as if Lansing were just as incapable
of performing his duties as the rest of
the departmental chiefs.
Jack Dempsey, the pug-uglie who
walloped the stuffin' out of Champeen
Willard, neatly, wants the mere trifle
of half a million dollars to. go over to
Paris and take on the French cham
pion for a few minutes' entertainment.
These prize-fighters not only have a
mighty lofty option of themselves,
but they get away with it and we pay

As' we have upon numerous occa
sions' remorked, pugilism is a relic
of the dark^agesthe days of savagery
and should be abolished by law. In
some of the more civilized statesin
which, we are sorry to say, Minnesota
is not includedthis has been done.
Legislatures that tolerate these de
grading exhibitions of barbarism are
equally as bad as the ruffians who en
gage in the bouts.
It would seem that one Cary of Min
neapolis, characterized by some as a
lawyer and by otners as a pettifogger,
is virtually a shark that is, if the
evidence introduced by witnesses in his
examination before Judge Dickson is
any criterion. Testimony adduced be
fore the court tends to show that Cary
appropriated to his own use half of
the amounts voted by the legislature
to tl widows and orphans of the mem
bers of the home guard who died from
exposure in the Moose Lake forest fire,
though he had assured the senate
finance committee that the beneficiar
ies would receive every penny coming
to them in accord with the legislative
decision. The hearing before Judge
Dicksonnamed as commissioner by
the supreme courtis in the nature of
disbarment proceedings, but if Cary
pie were demanding the immediate
ratification of the treaty "with or with
out reservations." It is unfortunate is found to have robbed poor widows work of the past year and an outline
and orphans, jis testimony appears to
show, disbarment from practice in the
state would be altogether a too lenient
punishment for him. For perpetrating
so diabolical a crime 25 years behind
the bars at Stillwater would be^none
too severe a sentence.
THE PRINCETON UNION: THURSDAY, JANFART I, I92F
National Republican: Strikes cost
labor and industry two billion dollars
in 1919. There is no more reason why
the public should suffer from a labor
dispute than from any other kind of
dispute. Quarreling neighbors are re
quired to take their grievances to
court for binding1
decision on the basis
of equity. Some day we will have
sense enough to require industrial dis
putants to do the same thing. 1
Sir Jo. Daniels, "lord of the ad
miralty," is now accused by Admiral
Sims, who is an eminent naval officer,
with juggling the distribution of dis
tinguished service medals, and a con
gressional investigation will result.
This is not the first thing that Jo. lias
juggled. In fact his whole adminis
tration has been one of continuous
juggling and, as a result of his land
lubber policies, the United States navy
is now a veritable cripple, with only
about half enough men to man the
Well, President Wilson has decided
that he will not turn back the railroads
and express companies to their owners
on January 1, as promised, but wait
until March 1 to make the transfer,
and has issued a proclamation to that
.effect. His explanation is that he post
poned the return in order to afford con
gress time to pass pending legislation
for reorganizing "the entire transpor
tation system on a new basis. Verily,
the United States appears to be back
ing into the absolute monarchy column
into a dictatorship.
John/ D. Rockefeller has agam
loosened his purse strings and given
awcy 100 million dollars. Half of this
goes to the Rockefeller foundation and
half to the "general education board.
Such college professors as are selected
by the board throughout the country
will receive a raise in salaries and the
work of combatting disease will be en
hanced by the improvement of medi
cal education, public health administra
tion and scientific research. Mr.
Rockefeller has, perhaps, arrived at
the same conclusion as Andrew Carne
gie, who said that as ho acquired his
wealth from the people to them he
would return it. He could not take
it with him when he died, so he want
ed to die poor.
Another instance of the unreliability
of the news furnished by the press as
sociations is made evident in the story
of the deportation of anarchists on the
transport Buford. The dispatches told
us that the infamous Minneapolis red,
Alexis Georgian,was one of the reptiles
on his way to the land of the bolshev
ists with Terrorist Emma Goldman et
al. But he was not. Twelve hours be
fore the transport sailed Georgian's at
torneys, after much difficulty, found a
judge who issued their notorious client
a writ of habeas corpus. As several
other judges had refused to issue such
writ, the question arises, is this judge
in sympathy with the anarchists The
to be drawn from his action
would seem to indicate that he is.
Why not stop people from 'eating
lutefisk It has to go through a soak
ing process in lye and ashes, which
may be ^injurious to one's brains. Isn't
it about time that our reformers take
up that matter in earnest.Chisago
It could not possibly be accom
plished, Norelius. To prohibit the eat
ing of lutefisk would bring about a
revolution. So savory a dish, with its
fragrant odor, toothsome tenderness
and breath-improving properties can
not be easily cast aside. Even little
children cry for it. It would be just
as easy to prohibit the eating of that
other pleasantly-perfumed, delectable,
appetizing viand known as limburger
cheese as to attempt to taboo lutefisk.
In the name of peace we ask you,
Brother Norelius, to refrain from
again assailing this imported delicacy.
Second Annual Farm Bureau Meeting.
The second annual meeting of the
Mille Lacs County Farm Bureau asso
ciation will be held in the high school
auditorium at Milaca on Saturday,
January 10, at 1 p. m. This will be
strictly a business meeting and mem
bers and non-members are requested
to be present to outline the farm bu
reau work for the coming year.
Mr. Cleland of the university farm
has been asked to speak on the Ameri
can Farm bureau federation. A vote
will then be taken to decide if this
county wishes to affiliate with the na
tional association. No other outside
speakers have been scheduled as it was
certain that no one would know the
local situation as well as our local
leaders. The executive committeemen
will give short talks on co-operative
shipping associations, creameries, far
mers' clubs, live stock breeders' asso
ciations, public schools, county fair,
commercial, clubs, etc. The county
agent will give a brief report of the
of work for the coming year. Elec
tion of officers and a general discus
sion of the farm bureau work will com
plete the program. Everyone is in
vited to attend the meeting to get bet
ter acquainted with the farm bureau
Stay yet, my friends, a moment stay
Stay till the good old year,
So long companion of our way,
Shakes hands, and leaves us here.
Oh stay, oh stay,
One little hour, and then away.
The year, whose hopes- were high and strong,
Has now no hopes to wake:
Yet one hour more of jest and song
For his familiar sake.
Oh stay, oh stay,
One mirthful hour, and then away.
The kindly year, his liberal hands
Have lavished all his store.
And shall we turn from where he stands,
Because he giyes no more?
Oh stay, oh stay,
One grateful hour, and then away.
Days brightly came, and calmly went,
While yet he was our guest
How cheerfully the week was spent!
How sweet the seventh day's rest!
Oh stay, oh stay,
One golden hoar, and then away.
Dear friends were with us, some who sleep.
Beneath the coffin-lid:
What pleasant memories we keep
Of all they said and did!
Oh stay, oh stay,
One tender hour, and then away.
Even while we sing, he smiles his last,
And leaves our sphere behind.
The good old year is with the past
Oh be the new as kind!
Oh stay, oh stay,
Our parting strain, and then away.
William Cullen Bryant.
