The Law on Trial.
There can be no question that
there has been a considerable
change of sentiment during the
past two months in regard to
the primary election law. This
is the law's second trial and wedate
are beginning to find out that
the law is having some effects
which its makers never sus
pected it would have. The theorv
of the law is that the people shall
have an untrammeled opportunity
to nominate their candidates.
The law gives the opportunity
alright but it is beginning to be
doubtful whether the opportunity
is proving an unmixed blessing.
The law lays a heavy expense on
the candidates, it affords oppor
tunities for political jobbing
which are just as certain to de
feat the popular will as was thehe
old system, it nominates men in
some cases by as low as twenty
per cent of the yote cast, it has
thus far failed to be taken ad
vantage of by the voters, not
more than sixty per cent of the
voters attending the primaries,
and it is surely disrupting the
different political parties. These
things are serious and unless it
can be clearly shown that the
law is resulting in better gov
eminent the general verdict after
the second test to be given the
law this month may be so un
favorable as to threaten the
peal of the law by the legislature
IT HAS been a long time since
politics have been as strenuous
in Minnesota as they have been
for the past year. A year ago
the campaign for the nomination
of a republican candidate for gov
ernor was well nnder way while
Wall Street was making desper
ate attempts to find a republican
to oppose Roosevelt. From that
time to this there has been a
perfect turmoil of politics. If
the officers, big and little, after
they get in, exert one tenth of
the effort that has been put forth
to elect them during the past
twelyo monthsif they exert
one tenth of this effort in the
faithful discharge of their duties
we shall be the best governed
people on earth.

It is a great convenience to
have at hand reliable remedies
for use in cases of accident and
and for slight injuries and ail
ments. A good liniment and one
that is fast becoming a favorite
if not a household necessity is
Chamberlain's Pain Balm. By
applying it promptly to a cut,
bruise or burn it allays the pain
and causes the injury to heal in
one-third the time usually
required, and as it is an antisep
tic it prevents any danger of
blood poisoning. When Pain
Balm is kept at hand a sprain
may be treated before the in
flamation sets in, which insures
a quick recovery. For sale by
Barker's drug store.
