It is to be hoped that Secretary of
the Interior Ballinger's decision to
modify the orders relating to the
regulation of the liquor traffic in the
so called Indian district will have
the desired effect, and that a new
era of peace between state and
federal authorities will follow. While
the position of some of the residents
of Cass Lake created a situation
which permitted of considerable
levity, they stood for the principles
of those inalienable rights guaran
teed by the federal constitution and
demand respect. The mayor of
Cass and Judge Ives, as a result of
their prominence, have had to face
unfavorable comment and undesir
able notoriety, but their motives
were good and their success now
appears to have been complete.

Stonewall Jackson, Johnson, Bragg,

Judge Wright when he sentenced to
the state prison a violator of that
law which prohibits the sale of liquor
to a person of Indian blood.
It has been customary in cases of
this kind to either impose a fine or
a prison sentence to be suspended
during the good behavior of the
prisoner. As a result, the sale of
liquor to Indians has continued to a
greater or less degree and this has
been a source of irritation to the fed
As a jurist, Judge Wright is en
titled to much favorable comment
as a judge who tempers justice with
mercy he likewise could be com
mended but the good record he has
made on the district bench contains
nothing of a more praiseworthy na
ture than his sentence in this case
for it probably was the first link in
the chain of complete harmony which
will join the state and federal authori
ties. It is a striking evidence of
the state's desire to furnish substan
tial rid to the government in its
fight to aid this part of the country
of the iniquities growing out of the
liquor traffic with the Indians.
WHAT IT MEANS.
When the men representing the
800,000 residents of the 32 counties
of northern Minnesota take posses
sion of Brainerd the first of next
December, a history-making event
will have been launched.
The power generated at this great
gathering ought to be sufficient to
send the bills which are to embody
the needs of this mighty northern
domain through the legislature with
out serious opposition.
First of all must come the reap
portionment measure, carrying to
the people that proper representa
tation to which they are entitled.
The only comment that can properly
be made along this line is a renewal
of the warning that insidious foes
are at work and that friends of the
north should be alert. There is no
room for discussion as to the needs
of redistricting in a just and equit
Good roads and an immigration
bill, are to be drafted at the Brain
erd convention and they are to be
handled by some of the most astute
1 politicians as well as capable busi
ness men and brilliant attorneys
to be found in the state.
The importance of the Brainerd
meeting can scarcely be overestima
ted as the workings of that body will
be along the lines for the very things
which most of the candidates for the
next legistature are edged and it
will, therefore, be a meeting where
laws are to be formulated, inasmuch
as their passage will be assured un
less disloyalty becomes rampant.
It is for this reason that delegates
should go to the meeting, fully in
formed and ready to give the proper
aid in putting into concrete form the
needs of northern Minnesota and to
demand the rights to which this vast
territory is entitled.
WHAT OTHER PAPERS SAY

ditional work by his friends would

Those Minneapolis Gatemen.
Nowhere on the face of God's
footstool are there a more mean,
unobliging lot of creatures than the
gate keepers at the union station in
Minneapolis. They plant themselves
at the gate, open it about half way,
and take their time about letting
passengers through, who crowd and
push each other to pass making a
gathering where pickpockets can ply
their trade. The comfort of the
traveling public are as nothing to
those who have charge of the out
going travelers, and they must go
out at the particular gate that those
impudent gatekeepers demand.

Montgomery, Ward & Co. of

Journal, and we might add they are
willing to pay a rate local advertiser
would consider outrageous. The
Journal is usually out for any legiti

decided not to accept the contract.
We do not wish to help divert any
business that rightfully belongs to
home merchants, even though the

looked on advertising more as a

The white of an egg is made up of
little cells filled with albumen By
beating the white these cells are rup
tured and oxygen from the air is in
closed, which gives the white and
light appearance to beaten eggs The
white of a stale egg will not inclose as
much oxygen, will not be as light and
as easily digested as that of the fresh
egg and. of course, less valuable. The
importance of beating the egg in cold,
pure air is readily seen.
