The SlaUe Fair.
PLANS for the Minnesota state
fair show that it will this year be
bigger and better than ever. Th
fair last year was the mostambiti-
ous thing ever attempted in this
line in the northwest and it was
eminently successful in every
particular. Th Minnesota state
fair is far more than a state fair:
it is a northwestern exposition.
The fame of the fair has passed
beyond the boundaries of the
state and both exhibits and visi-
tors arc now drawn largely from
all the states of the northwest
even to the Pacific coast. Th
fair is one of the best single ad-
vertising mediums which Minne-
sota has and the people of the
state do well to encourage it by
their attendance and their finan-
cial support. I is very gratify-
ing too to know that the fair is
now on an admirable financial
footing. Th improvementsand
additional exhibits promised for
this year will make the fair the
greatest local exhibition in the
MANY people believe that
Minnesota has vo first prize for
butter at the world's fair. This
is not exactly true however.
Minnesota has taken first place
in the first monthly scoring hav-
ing fairly outstripped all competi-
tors. However there are other
sqorings to come before the prize
is finally awarded. Minnesota is
making more exhibits than any
other state which fact handicaps
her in the contest because of a
rule that the prize shall go to the
state having the most exhibits
scoring above 95 per cent. Minne-
sota butter is the best on earth:
a little care on the part of Minne-
sota buttermakors and we shall
be able to demonstrate this fact
to the world.

"Joshua Si pipkins" will be the
attraction at the City Opera
house tomorrow night. It is
said to be a well written pastoral
play with an interesting plot, the
story being a happy blending of
sunshine and shadow. The situ
ations are said to be strikingly
realistic with an overflow of fun
and amusement. There are seven
comedy parts in addition to that
of Uncle Josh, which character is
a whole show in itself. A sensa
tional novelty is introduced in the
third act in the shape of a real
istic saw mill scene, in which a
monster circular saw is used,
and which is said to actually saw
through real timber. A lino
orchestra is carried by the com
pany, also a line band of music,
which will make a burlesque
parade about noon.

After IIQUIS of unseemly
wrangling, after an illegal ballot,
the supporters of Judge Collins
for governor late this afternoon
bolted the convention, electing
Henry Funkley, of Blackduck,
chairman of a rump convention,
and S. R. Moorhead, of Turtle
River, secretary. I the midst
of the utmost confusion and in an
uproar which made his voice in
telligible to only two or three at
his elbow L. H. Bailey, the leader
of the Collins forces, then hastily
read the names of eight delegates
to the state convention and the
chair declared them elected,reso
lutions were adopted in the same
manner and the rump convention
Meanwhile in another part of
the same room the regularly
elected officers of the convention
were holding forth and a strictly
Dunn delegation, Dunn resolu
tions, etc were being adopted
with a whoop. Both conventions
were over in short order.
The delegates elected by the
convention are as follows: P. O.
Sibley, W. A. Gould, Joseph
Cartier, R. H. McDonald, Win.
McCuaig. Jos Markha m. Win.
Kiyley, R. W.
Hayett, G. O,
Hitchcock, and K. Mclver.
The delegates elected by
rump convention are L.
Bailey, E. J. S wed back, L.
Townsend, E. E. McDonald,
Andy Danaher, Alfred Olson, M.
D. Stoner and C. R. Martin.
Hot? Simmering just like the good
old summer time.
The Republican convention for
Beltrami county today developed
the hottest kind of a contest. Th
Collins men were confident and
bore themselves with lull chests
while the Dunn men* looked
modest and. worked hard. I
was the general opinion that
Collins had a cinch and the Col
lins leaders claimed seventy-two
votes out of ninety-nine.
About 11 o'clock the Collins
forces caucused and counted
forty-three noses./' A vote on
chairman of the county commit
tee gave I. P.. Olsa^Ewenty-eight
and E. E. McLk#ald fifteen. I

county campaign by an executive

duck, and E. VZ McDonald, of
The Dunn men caucussed at
1 o'clock with fifty-two delegates
At 1:30 chairman McCuaig
called the convention to order
and W. A. Gould and Townsend
were placed in nomination for
temporary chairman, the former
being supported by the Dunn
men and the latter by the Collins
contingent. A roll call was had
but mistakes were so numerous
that another was attempted.

"A doctor here sued me for

asked him if it was not Chamber

good reason to believe it was, and
he would not say under oath that
it was not." doctor could

This had not proceeded far when
some one objected and the call
was begun once more. Then
the convention fell to ^wrangling
as to the method of electing a
chairman. After some excite
ment, many motions and a little
profanity the call was proceeded
with. Gould received forty-seven
votes to forty-two for Townsend
and the Dunn men cheered
