Minnesota has one of the best
school systems in the world, and
it is largely the result of the
state board of education law, pas
sed some ten years ago. This law
grants the state aid to certain
schools which reach a standard
set by the state board of educa
tion. The board, under the pro
visions of the act, have engaged
inspectors, who travel from
school to school throughout the
state, and give the schools the
benefit of their wider knowledge,
and see that the standard set is
maintained. This plan has re
sulted in building up an expert
educational department in charge
of such schools as high schools,
graded and semi-graded schools
and the results which have been
obtained have been so pronounc
ed that Minnesota's system has
attracted attention from all of
the other states of the Union and
the school system of sev
eral states has been patterned af
ter that of Minnesota.
The success of Minnesota's
system is emphasised by the
fact that Minnesota has just been
awarded the grand prize for the
best elementary educational ex
hioit at the World's Pair at St.
Louis. In addition to the grand
prize the state also secured a
gold medal for its secondary edu
cational exhibit and eight other

have never been able to agree
among themselves' long enough to
secure anything from the repub
lican party which their import
ance in the commonwealth en
titles them to. Just now they
are engaged in a desperate at
tempt to wreck the republican
party and if Minneapolis could
have its way today there would
not be enough left of the repub
lican party after November 8, to
be worth patching together again
and calling a party. The contest
seems to be the same one that ex
isted in the state convention
the city against the country.
If Hennepin county republicans
get anything from the party dur
ing the next ten years it will not
be because they deserve it.
THE demand for state or county
road on the range line south from
Beaudette is one that should be
met with all possible dispatch.
The road will be a paying in
vestment for the county.
County Surveyor Stoner has de
clared that the fees which the
road would save the county would
pay for it in two years while the
development of the county would
be materially assisted and the in
dividual settlers benefited more
than it is possible to say. The
difficulty of communication with
the northern boundary of the
state makes the road also a state
necessity and the state could as
sist liberally in its construction.
is but one opinion, ex
cept in degree, as to the advisa
bility of securing the construc

such a road must take are the
most firmly^ persuadedljof

ry settler along the route, not ac
tually damaged, should be glad to
give what little of his land is
needed for the right of way, for
the road will open the best agri

IT seems reasonable to believe
that party lines will not be so close
lydrawn intheelection next month
asm past years. Inthefirstplace
the independent voter grows each
year more numerous, in the sec
ond place there is really but one
ticket in the field in Be^rami
county this year, which makes
the drawing of party lines pretty
difficult, and in the third place
the primary law has got the voter
into the habit to thinking princi
pally of the candidate. It is alto
gether likely that there will be
fewer "straight" tickets in the
election of 1904 than ever be
