Tomorrow's state convention
"will see the finish of one of theheld
most sensational political fights
in the history of the state of-Min
nesota when the Republican dele
gates to the state convention will
name a candidate for governor.
The pie-convention campaign
has boon spectacular and in
many sections, and at various
times there has been a tinge of
bitterness that is to be regretted
The sympathy of the fair-minded,
broad-guaged people of the state
at large will tomorrow be with
R. C. Dunn, of Princeton, who
from present indications will be
nominated by a safe majority on
the first ballot. Reliable advices
this afternoon are to the effect
that perhaps no other name will
be mentioned in the convention.
Mr. Dunn has made a fair and
a vigorous fight characteristic
of the man himself. He is fairly
entitled to the nomination and is
unquestionably in the opinion of
all conservative people the con
scientious choice of the Republi
cans of the state at large.
If there has been any bitter
ness or any ill feeling engen
dered in the campaign it is un
fortunate, but it will not be hard
for Republicans whose standards
of consistency are correct, to ac
cord to the norMnee of tomor
row's convention the hearty and
unbiased support which will in
sure Republican success at theGreat
polls in November.
MONDAY is the nation's one
bundled and twenty eight birth
day and throughout the length
and breadth of the land it will be
marked by the usual patriotic
observations. The old-fashioned
Fourth of July celebration is said
to be passing and in its place
springs up a more quiet and a less
disastrous method qf celebrat
ing__The small-boy and the can
non cracker will still be_evidence
in the casualty column, however,
but the public at large is gradu
ally learning a lesson which is
tending to diminish the annual
list of Independence day hor
HE silver anniversary edition
of the Grand Porks Herald is an
effort which entitles that ex
cellent and progressive news
paper to the warmest congratula
tions of the craft in general. The
Herald is North Dakota's fore
most newspaper and it stands
head and shoulders as a legiti
mate newspaper above anything
published in tho.Flickcrtail state.
The Herald's success and pros
perity is gratifying to its many
Minnesoto friends It is a credit
to the entire Northwest.
HE purchase of the Red Lake
Transportation Co.'s Beltrami
county interests including the
Rod Lake Railroad, by a com
pany of substantial Minneapolis
business men yesterday means
much to Beltrami county. It
moans the assured early develop
ment by improved railroad facil
ities of a considerable portion of
the most resourceful section of
the empire county ot the north
country and incidentally an added
degree of prosperity to the city
There is some speculation as to
whether the convention has left
any sore spots, but conservative
opinion on both sides seems to
indicate that it has not. A good
healthy hemp within the party is
not a bad thing after all and there
is little question but that the
oarty will present a united front
at the polls for the straight
(i. O. P. ticket in November
Judge Clark. Auditor Sylves
ter,Treasurer French and Regis
ter of Deeds Phibbs have begun
their card campaign and will be
getting busy from this time on.
Candidates for county office
were much in evidence yester
day. It was not a good day for
offectiyo canvassing, however.
The suspense during the time
the convention was in session and
for~sevoi\aT~hburs before it was
was too intense to admit of
future figuring and aside from
extending the glad hand to the
delegates it was impossible to do
anything br to learn much on
what interest the various candi
dates are arousing in the county
Yesterday's county convention
was remarkable in the political
history of Beltrami county,noted
for intense county conventions.
The Dunn men wore unquestion
ably in the majority in the con
vention and the conscientious
sentiment of the convention was
undoubtedly Dunn. The Collins
men were strong on the floor,
however, and the manipulation
'of the majority by the minority
for a time seemed certain. The
bolt of the Collins forces, how
ever, was disastrous and after
that it was all over in a hurry.
The defeat of the city charter
yesterday by such a small ma
jority was a great surprise to
certain of the select who have all
along been doing quiet work
against the charter. Yesterday
was a big day for the bell
wethers and they were not per
mitted to exercise the usual tac
tics of voting everything and
everybody. The vote was a fair
expression of the intelligence of
the city and there is no question
but that the majority of the busi
ness people of the city were in
favor of the adoption of the
The two delegations from Bel
trami county to the Republican
state convention left this morn
ing over the Northern Pacific and
Great Northern for St. Paul.
The greater part of the Collins
delegations went over the M. &
I. and the Dunn delegation for
the most part went over the
Northern. Both delega
tions are confident that they will
be seated in the convention, but
the Collins forces are admittedly
in bad shape. When the break
in the convention came yesterday
afternoon, the chairman and sec
rotary kept the minutes of the
meeting ancrulosed the regularly
assembled convention in regular
order. Upon the organization of
the state convention depends the
seating of the delegation. If the
Collins forces win out in the pre
liminary organization the Collins
delegation willprobablv be seated
and vice versa.
Tips of the Tongue
Judge Pendergast: "They
make lots of fun of the Democrats
but I don't think the Republicans
in this county have much of a
hoop-la coining since yesterday."
Senator Swodback: "I am ex
pecting State Drainage Engineer
Ralph down from Crookston
every day to arrange for the be
ginning of work on the county
City Attorney Russell: "I am
sure Bemidji needs a band. The
city can and will support one
very nicely. I should be pleased
to do anything I could to help
the boys get started along right
lines. If financial support is
necessary I don't think there
would be any trouble in securing
a monthly subscription. 1 should
bo pleased to help the boys in
any way I can."
Charles Hayden, Blackduck:
"I have been in politics ever since
I was twenty one years old but
yesterday's convention was the
most spectacular in my exper
ience. I don't think there is go
ing to be any hard feeling. It was
just a good healthy tight among
Republicans and of course
some of the boys are inclined to
be a little sore and excited. The
thing to do is for everybody to
put his shoulder to the wheel and
tight for Republican success all
along the line this fall."
