The Anti-Pass Amendment.
The incorporation of a radical anti
pass provision in the rate regulation
bill ought not to be any obstacle in the
wav of its passage. Indeed, it ought
to be an argument in its favor with the
railroad men and their friends in the
senate and house. The pass evil, cspe
ciallv in politics, is a very serious mat
ter. It costs the railroads a great deal
in the way of loss of pay for passenger
service and it operateswhether they
are conscious of it or notas an influ
ence upon both legislative and admin
istrative officers. When the pass is clone
a/way with, the open rate can be lowered
probabb* without loss to the raihoad
(companies. The people who pav fare
will no longer be paying their own and
that of other people as wellthe other
people generally riling in better accom
modations than those who pay. This
amendment has been brought in at
rather a late hour, but it ought to aid
in the passage of the bill thru both
houses of congress.

An Unpatriotic Demand.
The Washington Post shows a most
nnpatnotic levity in its treatment of
the tiiumph of Mr. Lord Henry White,
our ambassador to Itajy and delegate
to the Algeciras conference. Accord
ing to Lord White's veiled and diplo
matic repoit, he simply "seen his duty
and he done it." The Post demands
particulars and his lordship responds
that he realized that something must be
done, so he brought the French amd Ger
man delegates together and compelled
them to explain their differences. Even
this the Post rejects as vague and un
satisfactory. How did our ambassador
bring them together, when and how
did he hold them and how diet he com
pel them to explain their differences,
the Post would fain inquire.
These are questions which no news
paper has the right to ask a diplomat
of the first rank, and we understand
that Lord White is as rank as any we
have. Diplomacy does not answer ques
tions. Diplomacy simply exhibits re
sults and exclaims, in the language of
the guild, Voila!" The rest is in the
archives and the archives are in a
safe deposit vault -which, can be opened
...only with the ioint keys of all the
powers, and the lock of secrecy is
usually set for a ejele of Cathay.

b: Taft on the Negro Question.
Secretary Taft's speech at Tuskegee
is the calmest and sanest contribution' sideration
to the literature of the negro problem
which has emanated from a responsible
public man in many a day. "While the
address may be criticized as relegating
the negro to the time when he shall

those rights are now guaranteed to him'

The fact seems to be that there were

are dropping away and looking
for some one else teo tie to The
lent opinion is that if a strong candi
date enters the field Buekman's own
friends will make him ee the situa
tion and induce him to withdraw.
One reason for such drastic action is
the fear of defeat at the polls. If
Buckman should win' out at the pri
maries over a broken field, the demo
crats have the pins, all put up, and
are counting on capturing the district.
.T. D. Sullivan, the well-known, attor
ney of St. Cloud, is said to have been
selected to carry the demo'crat.ic stand
ard. Feeling is at such a pitch that
republicans admit Buckman would lose
thousands of votes, and would be se
riously threatened by such a man as
The break from Buckman is signal
ized by leading editorials in several
of the district papers, which have sup
ported him in previous campaigns. Last
week, in addition to the Park Rapids
Enterprise, the Alexandria Bost-lSews
and the Foley Independent discharged
broadsides at Buckman. The Post-
News' stand is especially significant, as
it is taken in direct opposition to its
townsman, Senator Nelson. It is well
known that Nelson favors Buckman,
or has up to this time, and has tried
to smooth matters over in the district,
but the senator's friends at home are
breaking away in spite of it.
The Alexandria paper declared* that
Buckman had failed to measure up to
the standard set for public service,
either in public acts, public record
or private life, ,and that dissatisfaction
is widespread. i not allayed by nom
inating a strong man, there is serious
danger of the district being lost to
the republicans. The disaffection tw=o
years ago was partly overcome by the
second-term argument, which appealeti
to the Post-News, but now it says:
This disaffection is stronger today than
ever and is not confined solely to the antt
Buckman forces, but has its ramifica
tions, it is said", in the heretofore aln&ast
impregnable machine of -thi shrewdv-pol
iticlan. The bitter attacks of the $enia
crattc opposition of*"t,wo years ago arje'
being renewed with greater force.
Charges and accusations are being mafcle
which the republicans of this district eajn
not hope to -successfully combat and the
fight, if won, after securing a re^Omuta
tion by default, will' be won by th,ft repub
lican party contesting eVery' foot of
ground. The democratic party is alive
to the situation and the advantages of
fered bv such a contest. It is organizipg,
and will put foiward one of its mostj
available men Can the republican pasty
of the sixth district afford to take the*
risk of renominating the present incum
bent, or shall it insure another victory
at the polls in November by unanimously
uniting upon one who will prove a bul
wark of strength to the cause in the dis
trict and in the state' The'call is urgent,
will the party produce such a candidate?
As to the candidate, nothing definite'
has been decided. Tieniendous pres
sure' has been brought to bear on James
A. Martin, but he has absolutely re
fused to consider tho proposition. The
belief is that if Martin, came otitr Buck
man would withdraw but Martin feels
that his postoffice appointment, tho se
cured rather at tho instance of Senator
Nelson than by Buekman's favor, ties
comes from a strong republican county
and is a hard fighter. He is* a very
likely selection. If Wood runs, how
ever, his home enemies, W. E. Lee and
J. D. Jones, will keep Buckman in the
field at all hazards. Something will
drop in the sixth very soon.
C. S. Benson declares that he 'is in
the contest entirely on his own hook,,
and not in the interests of .any other
candidate. He says he determined to
run as soon as Brower dropped out, and
will put up a vigorous campaign.
A "grapevine" special from* the
ninth district tells a curious and inter
esting story of a compact between those
old-time enemies, Halvor Steenerson and
A. D. Stephens of Crookston. Instead
of running against Steenerson, as the
story goes, Stephens is going to make
a bold try for the governorship, and is
to have the backing of Steenerson and
his friends all over the ninth district.
The idea is to give Stephens a solid
ninth-district delegation in the conven
Many things indicate the ttruth of
this report. One is the statement of the
Crookston Times, which represents the
Stephens interests, that there will be
no opposition to Steenerson in that end
of the district. It is intimated that a
candidate may spring up in the south
ern end, referring probably to S. G.
Comstock of Mo6rhead.
If Steenerson and Stephen^ are"*eally
together, the combination will be hard
to beat in the ninth district. Such a
union of forces will be kept secret, even
if agreed on, and probably will be de-'
nied vigorously. Time will tell.

He will send a communication to the

attention to the condition of alleys and
streets and asking the aldermen to or
der their commissioners to get to work.
Primarily the undertaking is sani
tary, but it will really work out as
a desirable esthetic movement. Until
the full schedule for garbage collection
goes into effect, the health department
will also haul away ashes provided that
they are in cans which mar ba^easily
dumped. Dr. Hall hopes,' hfl^rvdr^that
the street commissioners will ..remove
all the other debris. Street commis

Treble Clef Club.
The auditorium of the East High
school was completely filled# last even
ing with a large and enthusiastic audi
ence gathered to attend the first public
appearance of the Treble Clef club, an
organization consisting of seventy-five
q the teachers of the eity, under the
direction of Miss Helen "W. Trsftk. Su
pervisor of music in the city schools*.
Miss Trask and the club are both to be
congratulated upon the success of the
first concert, and the citv is also to
be congratulated that in its teaching
force should be found the material for
such a chorus and such enthusiasm.
The program opened with a chorus,'
*'Kow Us Swiftly," with the solo by
Miss McCann, which was given with
delightful swing and color to the bar
carolle movement. Miss Perkins' solo,
Rossini's "Charity," was very com
mendably sung. The best work of the
Club was probably in Neidlinger's
"Mother's Song," the melody being in
the second alto, with a humming ac
companiment. It is a very charming
.number and was well rendered. The
'.singing of an arrangement of Schu-
~ert's "Serenade" perhaps should di
ide honors with the Neidlinger com-
Standpoint of popular approval. A
good ladies' quartet, consisting of
Misses Perkins, Starrett, Garvey and
Shook, sang a double number, Nevin's
"The Rose" and Neidlinger's
Miss Hannah Hoiby, a voung school
girl barely 16 years of age, was the
principal soloist of the evening, sing
ing A Dream of Paradise" for her
first number. Miss Hoiby has & big
voice and fine musical temperament,
and with proper training is bound to
have a brilliant future. Immature and
untrained as her voice now is, there is
promise of great accomplishment with
ersistent and properly-directed effort,
response to the insistent encore, she
sang a Norwegian folksong which was
admirably suited to her voice in its
Frank H. Forsell, the well-krtown
enor, sang "Gloria" for his solo nnm
fber and took the tenor solo in 'IList,
|he Cherubic Host," from Gaul's
Citv." He was heartily encored. The
program closed with Bendall's "Lady
of Shallott," a somewhat sombre com
position in cantata form, in which Miss
Hoiby took the solos. It was exception
ally well rendered.
The fact that many whiskies are
represented to be as "g/o as Pick

Would that every lover of music in
Minneapolis might have heard Mme.
Gadski in her .recital given at the First
Baptist church last evening, instead of
the small audience which did hear her.
Those who did not go missed one of the
finest things of the entire season, and
those who did, will remember for many
a long day the famous singer and her
The small audience, however, did not
prevent Mme. Gadski from singing mag
nificently, and the enthusiasm of the
audience was enough to gladden the
heart of any artist. The opera excerpts
opened and closed the concert, and
while the diva shone in every number,
it was in these that she was really
most effective. She is grandly dramatic
and sang the Wagner numbers con
amore. After .the Liebestod" she
was recalled again and again and re
sponded with the "Valkyrie's Cry."
The effect was fairly electric and so
aroused the audience that convention
alities were forgotten and cries and
applause arose from all over the house
and the great song had to be repeated.
In the song numbers Mme. Gadski did
not sing with complete abandon till she
reached the second group, altho every
one was delightfully and artistically
done. The familiar "Irish Folk Song
was given a new and ideal interpreta
tion so fine was it that one could al
most hear the crooning of the Irish
mother as she sang. The same is true
of the '^Beloved, It Is Morn." The
Strauss "Traum" was perfect and
beautiful in consequence The "Be-
treat," by Mr. La Forge, was repeated
twice, and the "Years at the Spring,"
by Mrs. H. H. A. Beach, three times.
After the Serenade from "Buy Bias,"
"Loch Lomond" was given an ex
quisite reading- Mine. Gadski's sing
ing at- this recital will long be a blesed
Assisting the singer was Frank La
Forge* a yWng American and a puriil
of Letschititsky, now established in
Berlin, who played two solos and acted
as Mme. Gadski's accompanist., Jn the
latter capacity he could not be im
proved on. He plays almost exclusive

It emphasizes also the, growing antago
