Republicans throughout Min
nesota who let themseiyes be so
pliable in the hands of a few un
scrupulous republican politicians
in Minneapolis will after a while
wake up, perhaps,to the fact tnat
they have simply been played
with the past campaign.
Before the republican state
convention and during the cam
paign, it was "Hurrah for Clapp"
from one end of the state to the
other and we have the word of
the veracious Minneapolis Jour
nal for it that the only thought of
opposition to Senator Clapp in
the whole state was in the mind
of R. C. Dunn, republican candi
date for governor. The Journal
printed columns and pages and
fac-similes of letters showing
Dunn's unholy plot to unseat
Clapp. The votes are barely
counted and Dunn's defeat barely
made certain, when it is discov
ered that Clapp must do desper
ate battle if he would be reelected
to the United States senate this
The only support that Senator
Clapp has is from the friends of
Robert C. Dunn.

Out of the Frying Pan Into
It appears that in securing an
amendment to the state constitu
tion we are always between two
evils and it is hard to say which
is the greater of the two.
Heretofore, owing to the con
stitional provision that the con
stitution cannot be amended ex
cept by an affirmative vote of a
majority of all the. electors of the
state voting at any election, it has
been practically impossible to se
cure amendments, even when
they were desperately needed,
owing to the neglect of the voters
to express themselves one way
or another. But some bright
mind conceived the idea of a sep
arate ballot for the constitutional
amendments, and behold, every
body votes on the amendments
now and everybody votes yes.
Almost any old amendment
would pass under the present
law. It would take a desperate
fight against an amendment to
This is certainly a grave situa
tion. It ought to be possible to
pass an amendment when the
need for it is clearly shown but
it ought never to be easy to pass
