and sentences could be nullified at
the dictates of the governor's private
views concerning capital punishment.
The proposition is preposterous and
would put murder in the first degree
on the free list.
"I prosecuted those people to the
best of my ability, and I have noth

I feel as though I did my duty as
the law defines it. If the law is not
right let it be changed.
"in the face of the great difficulty
that northern Minnesota has experi

Was a Very Fine Lecture.
The first number in the lecture
course which will be given this fall
and winter under the auspices of the
Ladies Aid society of the Presbyter
ian church, was the lecture given
Saturday evening by Professor
Elliot A. Boyle.
There was a fair-sized crowd, con
sidering that it was Saturday even
ing, which is always a busy time,
and those who attended were repaid
with by far the cleverest lecture ever
delivered in this city. The speaker
was scholarly and eloquent and his
lecture on "The Seen and the
Unseen" was filled with wit, humor
The next number of the course
will be a Ladies' Quartette, on Sat

Made Good Deal on Land.
W. T. Blakeley has the laugh on
some parties who have been "josh
ing" him for some time past on
having purchased a section and three
quarters of land near Aberdeen,
Saskatchewan, two years ago.
Mr. Blakeley bought the land at a
low figure, and made no special effort
to re-sell. However, a few weeks
ago, he was approached by parties
who desired to purchase some of his
land, with the result that he has
disposed of one section of the land,
receiving $11,000 in cash therefor,
realizing a clear profit of something
like $5,000 on the original price paid
for the property, and he still has
three-fourths of a section left.
