The state legislature which
meets in January will electa suc
cessor to Senator Clapp, and it
seems certain at this time that
that successor will be the sena
tor himself. Moses E. Clapp has
made a good senator he has
given general satisfaction, and
while there is no very active de
mand for re-election, aside from
politics, most people feel that
it is better to re-elect a man who
has been tried and proven true
than to choose an unknown.
Moreover there is the undoubted
advantage to be gained by con
tinuing good legislators in office.
Time giyes them greater and
greater influence and makes
them more and more valuable to
There is, however, active op
position to Senator Clapp. Poli
tics have so shaped themselves
that the senator will have
strength in the legislature out of
all proportion to his personal
strength. Various factions haye
been driven by reasons of policy
into supporting him. But there
are at work two very powerful
factions, who desire Senator
Clapp's retirement. Minneapolis
will never cease trying until she
has a senator. Minneapolis has
not yet agreed on Tom Lowry al
though a desperate attempt is
being made to make his election
a possibility. Joel Heatwole is
also a self confessed candidate.
Senator Clapp has the whip
hand now, but he must have
care if he would keep it.
you see a thing in the
twin city papers you do not know
whether it is so or not. For
downright deception and deliber
ate, persistent attempts to de
ceive the people of the state on
everything that pertains to the
state campaign the twin city
dailies have outdone anything
that has ever before been wit
nessed in this state, and we hope,
in any other. Their statements
as to politics are absolutely un
reliable. Even as to plain icems
of political news they cannot be
credited for one monent. Their
writers and reporters are in
structed to artfully pervert even
the news so that it may give ad
vantage to the cause they
espouse. It will be many years
before the statements of these
twin city papers will again carry
weight in Minnesota.
THE lying tactics resorted to
against Mr. Dunn in this cam
paign are well illustrated by a
prominent news item in a twin
city daily yesterday to the effect
that Mr. Dunn did not appear at
the Minneapolis meeting with
Speaker Cannon because the
state central committee feared
he would not make a favorable
impression before a Minneapolis
audience. Statements of this,
kind might have some weight
where Mr. Dunn is not known,
but Mr. Dunn addressed scores of
meetings in Minneapolis proceed
ing the caucuses for the county
convention and Minneapolis peo
pie have abundant opportunity to
find whether Dunn "appears to
advantage or not."
THE mud batteries of the Min
neapolis Journal have fired anoth
