Jacobson The Standard Bearer.
The republican party has again
come into its own in this state and
has demonstrated that it is again
dominated by the rank and file of
the voters. The state convention
held at St. Paul on Wednesday nom
inated for governor and standard
bearer in the coming campaign that
peerless champion of us common
people, Hon. Jacob F. Jacobson, the
noted sage of Lac qui Parle.
Two years ago the people demand
ed the nomination of Mr. Jacobson,
but the influence of the "system"
through the machinations of the
politicians circumvented the will of
the people. The politicians were
visited with dire punishment at the
polls, and this year they dared not
'oppose the popular choice, and he
was nominated by acclamation. His
competitors can hardly be classed as
"also ran." Mr. Jacobson is so well
known to the people of Minnesota
that nothing we could say can add to
the high esteem in which he is held
by everybody. It is sufficient to note
in passing that he pioneered in Min
nesota those self same policies later
made so immensely popular by
President Roosevelt. He is credited
with the ability to see a woodchuck
further in the woodpile than almost
any other man in the state.
The Advance takes particular
pleasure in the nomination of Mr.
Jacobson, for it was alone among the
press in the county in espousing his
cause, and we feel vindicated in the
stand taken. Our neighbors who
were for Jake two years ago, but
switched to Mr. Young this year,
would have shown greater consistency
and political acumen if they had re
mained loyal to Mr. Jacobson.
The outlook for republican success
in Minnesota this year is most
promising, and nothing now in view
can prevent the state from rolling up
its old time majorities, both for the
state and national ticket.

A Woman's Religion and Marriage.
The last chapter in Miss Milmine's
Life of Mrs. Eddy in the June Mc
Clure's is a review of her writings
"The most discouraging thing
about Mrs. Eddy's dissertions upon
anatomy and physiology is that she
seemsto know so little about the phys
ical facts and laws which she despises.
for instance, that a father
'plunged his infant babe, only a few
hours old, into water for several min
utes and repeated this operation daily
until the child could remain under
water for twenty minutes, moving and
playing without harm, like a fish.'
"Among the many incidental ideas
which Mrs. Eddy has added to Quim
byism is her theory that the Godhead
is more feminine than masculine, and
her qualified disapproval of matri
mony. Quimby himself had a large
family and saw nothing unspiritual
in marriage. In defining the real pur
pose of marriage Mrs. Eddy says
nothing about children 'to happify
existence by constant intercourse with
those adapted to elevate it, is the true
purpose of marriage.' In her chapter
on marriage she says: "The scientific
morale of marriage is spiritual unity.
Proportionately as human gen
eration ceases, the unbroken liqks of

SEVEN PEONS DEAD
Many Others Injured at Clinton,
Big Stone Comity.
CYCLONE DEVASTATES TOWN
Thirty-three Buildings Completely De
molished and Twenty-five More
Seven persons were killed, eleven
seriously injured, sixty others hurt
and thirty-three buildings completely
lemolished by a cyclone which struck
the village of Clinton, Big Stone
county. Property to the value of
$145,000 was destroyed.
•the storm covered an area of 300
yards wide and four mites long and a
tour along the path of the storm shows
desolation as complete as it is possible
People who have experienced other
tornadoes say that this left the most
complete ruin In its wake of any in
their experience. The marvel is that
so few were killed and that the list
of injured isn't longer.
The storm first struck the earth
outside of town, where a number of
buildings were demolished and three
people killed. Coming to the village
of Clinton the real havoc was done.
All the southwest corner of the town
is absolutely cleaned out. Thirty
three houses were completely de
stroyed and twenty-five practically
Everywhere are the usual evidences
of wind storms, chickens stripped of
their feathers and branohes driven
through the trunks of large trees.
The devastation in the oity is al
most wholly among the smaller prop
erty owners whose homes represented
their total savings. These people have
been stripped of everything, in many
cas^s not having sufficient clothing in
which to appear on the streets.
A part of the cyclone ivhich wrecked

leaving the station. The thirteen cars
were lifted from the track and hurled
into the ditch. Two of the cars were
TWO MEN ARE KILLED.
Several Others Hurt in Acoident in
Two men were killed, three others
were badly injured and seven or eight
more were bruised by the collapse of
a livery stable at Minneapolis which
was being torn down to make
room for a theater. The dead are: C.
W. Hardy, Minneapolis, and George
Johnson, home near Willmar.
The accident occurred when four
teen men were working on the build
ing. So far as can be learned, bricks,
which were being removed, were
thrown on the front part of the roof,
making a weight greater than the
walls could bear. The front part of
the roof caved in, hurling Hardy and
Johnson to the pavement outside the
walls. Hardy was killed instantly and
Johnson died on the way to the hos
The three men who later were taken
to the hospital were buried under the
The others were not seriously hurt,
some getting out of danger as the
roof went down and some being so
slightly bruised that they were able
to pick themselves up from the ruins
and walk away to the rear of the
Policemen and firemen rushed to
the scene and soon they were at work
digging out the men buried in the
ruins. It was two hours later before
the last man was removed.
Much difficulty was experienced in
accounting for all the men who had
been employed on the building and
for a time exaggerated rumors spread
through the crowd which had quickly

young people were drowned in North
Miss Eva Ehler of North Mankato
and her friend, Miss Maud Worlds of
St. Peter, had gone in bathing on Cor

overflow of the river. The girls had
been swimming but a short time when
Miss Ehler was heard to scream and
her friend, Miss Worlds, went to her
rescue. Both girls sank and Max
Sues, a young man who was coming
from town, plunged iri to save them.
The two girls and the young man
were all expert swimmers. It is
thought that they were all taken with
Victim of Poison.
Lewis J. Lundemo, a Minneapolis
pharmacist, considered of more than
ordinary ability in the mixing of

years old, had been living for some
time with his brother-in-law.

MERELY MARKING TIME.
State Department Taking No Action
in Venezuelan Question.
Washington, June 27.—The state de
partment is "marking time" in the
Venezuelan question. Events that
have occurred have produced a situa
tion that promises little change for
some time, and this government is
merely "awaiting the course of
events." The gunboat Marietta will
leave Curacao for Guanianamo with
Jacob Sleeper, secretary of the Amer
ican embassy at Caracas, and Lieu
tenant Francis A. Ruggles, military
attache, as passengers. Senor Veloz
Goitoca, the Venezuelan charge at
Washington, remains in this city, but
soon will take up his residence in the
suburbs, where he will continue to be
in close touch with the state depart
ment. if necessary. Nothing has been
learned at the Venezuelan legation
concerning the events in Caracas, so
that no new light could be shed upon
the diplomatic tangle involving the
Some interest was attached to the
fact that in ordering the Marietta
from Curacao to Guantanamo no in
structions were given for the return
of the vessel to Venezuelan waters.
The reason given for thiB course was
that there was no further use of the
gunboat to ply between Puerto Cabel
lo and Willemstad.
EIGHTY-FIVE ARE MISSING
Heavy Loss of Life by Sinking
of Spanish Steamer.
Corunna, Spain, June 25.—Latest re
ports show eighty-five persons miss
ing as a result of the sinking of the
steamship Larache. The rescued num
ber sixty-five. The captain sank with
Most of the passengers on the
Larache were residents of the Argen
tine Republic. The Larache was little
more than an old tub and she proved
a veritable deathtrap when she struck
on the rocks near Muros. She sank
in a few minutes, leaving the passen
gers and crew struggling in the water.
The small boats on the Larache were
either smashed or capsized. There
was a fleet of fishing boats in the
neighborhood and these rushed to the
rescue, but the heavy fog prevailing
seriously interfered with their work.
The fishermen succeeded in rescu
ing sixty-five persons. In addition to
the captain the ship's doctor and the
first officer were drowned. The dis
aster occurred at 5 o'clock in the
morning and most of those who were
saved are without clothing. It has
been ascertained that the number of
passengers and crew of the Larache
totalled 150. Sixty-five persons are
known to have been saved, but the
fate of the other eighty-five is not
known and it is feared that most of
