MOR E EXPLAINING
IS NOW IN ORDE
AND YET DUNN
DID NOT KNOW!
The "mystery" is cloared up. The
igina or the famous list of state
nds granted to the Duluth & lion
_ange Railroad company by the decree
of Judge Lochren, and containing 4i,-
614.16 acres of state institution lands,
has been found. the republicans are having ogvernor
Dunn says he did _not know oi.
THE LIST BEARS THE CER-
TIFICATE OF THE STATE AU
How the state auditor could have
been ignorant of this list, and what it
contained, passes all understanding.
The only explanation seems to be that
asigned by John Lind"official reck
Quarreled for Years.
This list of state lands was a bone
of contention between the Duluth &
Iron Range and the state auditor for
four years before the case came to trial.
Mr. Dunn in 1895 refused to allow the
company to select anv more lands to
fill its grant. The company was for
tified by a decision of the supreme
court, declaring the grant valid and
earned, and two opinions from the at
torney general. It maintained its right
to fill the grant and offered nine differ
ent selections of land from time to
Mr. Dunn refused to accept the se
lections, but the company left each se
lection with him as due notice. Jn
1898 the company secured certificates
from the auditor's office identifying
these lists. One set of 114 lists, repre
senting lands which the company had
selected and which had been deeded by
the state, was certified by Mr. Dunn
Feb. 15, 1898. Another set of lists,
including the lands which the compa
ny had offered to select from March,
23, 1895, to Jan. 21, 1898, was pre
pared and presented for certification
May 7, 1898. In the absence of Mr.
Dunn the certificates were signed by
his deputy, S. G. Iverson, the present
auditor. He made some changes in the
regular form, so as to si ow that the
state had refused to approve the selec
tions and grant the lands.- The first
certificate, which is a part of the court
records, reads as follows:
State Auditor's Certificate.
"State of Minnesota, Auditor's Office,
Land Department, St. Paul, May 7,
1898 "I, R. C. Dunn, auditor of state and
ex officio commissioner of the state
land office, in whose custody are kept

the public lands held, owned, claimed

As the part I played in the events I
am about to narrate was rather that of
a passive observer than of an active
participant, I need say little of myself.
I am a graduate of a western university
and, by profession, a physician. My
practice is now extensive, owing to my
blundering into fame in a somewhat
singular manner, but a year ago I had,
I assure you, little enough to do. In
asmuch as my practice is now secure, I
feel perfectly free to confess that the
cure I effected in the now celebrated

Candidate for Governor a
Special to The Journal.
Chicago, Oct. 22.Walter Wellman,
in summing up for the Chicago Record
Herald the political situation in the
west, todav pavs his respects to Min
nesota, Michigan and Wisconsin by
saving that the republicans in these
states have made a complete mess of
things. He snvs, however, that the
states are safe for Roosevelt.
He devotes considerable space to rid
iculing Dunn, the republican candidate
for governor of Minnesota. He says:
"It is a peculiar fact that this year

dozeno western] oarj far western states,
all or nearly all of which are safe for
Row in Michigan.
"In Michigan the dominant party is
engaged in a family row which threat
ens to elect a democratic governor.
As in Wisconsin, there is a protest
against the despotism of the old ma
chine and a widespread demand for a
primary election system. Warner, the
republican candidate for governor, is
secretary of state and a member in full
standing of the machine. By skilful
and assiduous wirepulling he made him
self the nominee and a lot of people do
not like it. The revolt against the old
crowd and its methods appears to be
Senato Burrow tells
me that while Roosevelt will carry the
state by 100,000 or over, Warner must be
satisfied with half as much. But other
republicans, perhaps better, because
more disinterested witnesses than the
senior senator, say Warner is in seri
ous danger, while the democrats claim
their candidate, Ferriss, is going to win
Sad Mess in Minnesota.
"In Minnesota the republican bosses
appear to have made a sad mess of
things, too. Tho Roosevelt is to have
a big plurality, the republican candi
date for governor, a machine-made man,
is having a hard time of it. His name
is Dunn, and some of the best people
and newspapers in the state are unable
to stomach him.
"Besides being a hack politician, he
made speeches, or tried to. His gram
mar and pronunciation are picturesque.
In a talk at Winona, for instance, he
congratulated the town for having sent
many soldiers to the Spanish-American
war, adding in his best style: 'And,
ladies and gentlemen, we all honor the'
bravo men whose names appear upon
the rooster of the Winona company.'
His democratic opponent, a Scandi
navian bearing the godly and not un
familiar name of Johnson, is making a
clever campaign and stands a good
chance to win.''

New York Sun Special Service.
New York, Oct. 22.The complete
breakdown of the democratic national
campaign almost three weeks in ad
vance of the election has caused much
surprise. There is no attempt to con
ceal the fact that the campaign has
gone to pieces. -The overwhelming de
teat of Judge Parker is conceded by
many of his friends and leaders at
democratic national headquarters.
The headquarters is a grotto of
gloom. The hired men there are pack
ing their personal belongings and go
ing home angry and disgusted. They
expected to draw salaries until election
day and they cannot understand why
the bluff is not kept up to the end.
They recall that in 1896 James K.
Jones claimed the election of Bryan
two days after all the votes were count

election he "carried'' most of the

By tonight the headquarters will be
practically deserted, and a campaign
that opened with a grand flourish of
trumpets will come to a ridiculous end
two weeks in advance of the election.
Little Parker Money.
There is plenty of Roosevelt money
in sight and very little Parker coin. On
the curb Allan, McGraw & Co. offered
to bet $20,000 or any part tlereof at
even money that Roosevelt will have
25,000 plurality in New York state.
Other firms have at least $30,000 more
to play at these figures.
So certain are the republicans that
the betting is confined principally to
pluralities in various states. Some
general-result bets were closed at 4 to 1.
Eugene Meyer, Jr., wagered $6,000 to
$1,500 on Roosevelt with Batheller &
Adoo. The latter firm has $5,000 more
to bet on Parker, but wants more fa
vorable odds. This money is believed
to have been put out by August Bel
mont to pull down the pdds on Par
ker a little. F. H. Brooks bet $6,000
to $10,000 on Parker carrying New
York state for Senator McCarren. Mr.
Brooks has $10,000 to bet against
$5,000 on Roosevelt carrying the state
of New York.

New York, Oct. 22.Viewed as a
personal tribute to the only living
former president of the United
States, and one besides who is regarded
by a large element in his party as the
foremost living democrat, the meeting
in Carnegie hall last night at which
Grover Cleveland presided, was a flat
It was Mr. Cleveland's first appear
ance in the campaign, and it had been
announced that it also would be his
last. He was the magnet that drew
the curious as well as the friendly to
Carnegie hall. That he was to speak
for Parker and Davis counted for hard
ly anything. The, audience would
have been just a large and probably
far more enthusiastic if Mr. Cleveland
had appeared on the platform simply as
the advocate of one of the minor can
didates of his partysay one of the
democratic nominees for congress. In
a dozen different ways the audience
made it plain that tfce tribute of their
applause was paid to Cleveland per
Cheered Six Minutes.
When he arrived in the hall the big
audience rose to its feet and cheered
heartily for more thap. six minutes, and
might have kept it UD for six more if
it had not been for ai deprecating wave
of the hands by the former president.
There was genuine enthusiasm in the re
Near the close of his address the dis
tinguished chairman referred to the
democratic presidential candidate and
mentioned Parker rvr name. Here and
there in the hall lit&*^n#ts of men and
women stood tip and cheered, but the
attempt to stamped^ the meeting was
not successful. The greater part of the
audience kept their seats.
Mr. Cleveland had the gratification
if it was such to himof knowing that
the honors of the meeting were his
alone, unshared by the candidate in
whose service he permitted himself to
be drafted at the eleventh hour.
Mr. Cleveland said:
Currency and Trusts.
The party will be given just credit
which, early or late, has endeavored to
safeguard the soundness of the nation's
currency, but the people will regret as
savoring of presumption the insistence
that only those belonging to one party

Minnesota expects to run up a
large score against the Grinnell eleven
at Northrop field this afternoon, altho
the field is somewhat slow from the wet
weather of the week. Grinnell has a
fast eleven and it is said to be a nervy
bunch, but Nebraska scored 46 against
the brave Iowans and Minnesota should
do better in view of their vaunted su
periority over the cornhuskers.
The presence of Thorpe and Burdick
should help the gophers in accumulating
a big score, as both men are consistent
ground gainers. Grinnell naturally ex
pects a beating and will be completely
satisfied if it can hold the score below
the record of last year, which was 46
Said C. E. Fisher, coach and manager
of the Grinnell team, at the Brunswick
"We have a very light team with
which to meet Minnesota, but will do
the best we can to make a good show

on the team last year, Auracher, the
captain. When we entered the game
with Nebraska our team averaged in
weight 156 pounds. But now we are

opinion that in this campaign the
fundamental principles of our republic
are at stake and that a vote for any
national ticket other than Parker and
Davis is at least half a vote in favor
of the abandonment of the doctrine of
