In the midst of so much per
sonal political discussion the peo
ple of Minnesota should not for
get that they have several very
important impersonal questions
to settle at the election next
month, The proposed constitu
tional amendments deserve the
careful consideration of every
voter. And it must be remem
bered that however much we
may favor the amendments, if
we do not vote for them, they
will not carry, for the constitu
tion requires an affirmative ma
jority of all the votes least at an
election to carry an amendment
The Pioneer believes that each of
the proposed amendments should
pass, but it will he a lamentable
thing if the gross earnings

to the voting booth be sure to put

to four per cent. Let the rail

Against The Government.
The only reason that the demo
cratic candidate for governor has
offered why he should be elected
in Minnesota this year, is that
he stands against every policy of
the state that it is time to aban
don all of the policies which have
made the state great, and to infor
augurate a system of do-nothing,
a system of which Mr. Johnson
has been a conspicuous advocate
for several years past.
Mr. Johnson ridicules the ne
cessity of good roads, declares
that state drainage benefits no
body but the railroads, favors the
abolution of the board of control,
records his vote and his voice
against every measure passed by
by the state for the veterans of
the Civil and Spanish wars and
looks hard at every other propo
sition to which the state has
successfully committed itself
during the past ten years.
If the people of Minnesota be
lieve that it is time for the state
to abandon these great policies,
they should by all means vote for
HE war in the east is ho long

It is time that the nations of the

ever. If the war continues a
month longer, a year longer, it
will mean simply the loss of
thousands of livesthe result

Altoona, Pa. June 20, 1903.
I was afflicted with Tetter in bad shape.
It would appear in blotches as large as my
hand, a yellowish color, and scale off.
You can imagine how offensive it was.
For twelve years I was afflicted with this
trouble. At night it was a case of scratch
and many times no rest at all. Seeing the
good the medicine was doing a friend
who was taking it for Eczema, I com
menced it, and as a result the eruption be
gan to dry up and disappear, and to-day
I am practically a well man. Only two
tiny spots are left on the elbow and shin,
where once the whole body was affected.
I have every confic Mice in the medicine,
and feel sure that ia a short time these
two remaining spots will disappear.
S. S. S. is certainly a great blood puri
fier, and has done me a world of good.
I am grateful for -what it has accom

will lead others who are similarly afflict

same good results that I have.
