The Seven Senator Scheme.
The revival of the seven senator
proposition in the state senate yester
day should be regarded as a direct
blow at reapportionment and prob
ably the first gun to be fired by the
southern senators who will oppose
any change in the present order of
By a good vote, the people of the
state declared against the seven sen
ator proposition at the general elec
tion last fall when they turned down
the proposed seven senator amend
ment to the state constitution. Now
Senators Moonan, Duxbury, Weis,
Putnam, Marden and Haycraft, all
from Southern Minnesota districts,
come forward and say the people
really want a seven senator limit on
Under the planned reapportion
ment bills, Hennepin county is to
have nine senators although entitled
to ten iby population. There has been
some readiness on the part of the
Hennepin delegation to accept a com
promise. Representative Elwell
voiced the opinion of the friends of
just reapportionment when he said
that it was unfair to give 25,000 in
a city one senator and 12,00.0 people
in the country one senator.
Northern Minnesota is vitally in
terested in a fair reapportionment
and wants just as square a deal for
the cities as she expects for herself.
The seven senator proposition is un
fair on its face, is a direct violation
of the spirit of the constitution, and
has been turned down by a decisive
vote of the .people. The senators
above mentioned have at heart sel
fish interests rather than those of the
state at large.
State Should Reimburse Us.
Beltrami county, through Auditor
J. L. George, has asked the state to
reimburse it for $10,000 spent in the
prosecution of the Dumas' arson
cases. Those who followed the course
of the trials will agree that the Du
mas cases were of far .more than local
importance and that this county sue
ceeded in convicting one of the
smoothest fire fiends who has operat
ed in this state for some time. That
Beltrami county should be made to
pay all of this expense is unfair. The
state should reimburse, this county
for the $10,000 it had to spend on
A New Institution.
Few institutions of learning have
begun their existence under such aus
picious circumstances as the William
M. Rice Institute, wMch opened its
doors last fail at Houston, Tex., with
an original fund for $10,000,000 for
endowment and maintenance with
the foremost educators in the nation
aiding in planning its future, with
picked men for administrative of
fices and faculty, and with a vigor
ous^ growing country in which to
prosper and" wield its influence. It is
small wonder that the opening of this
institution should ibe attended by
noted educators from all over the,
world, as well as official government
representatives. Dr. P. Claxton,
United States commissioner of edu
cation, was deputized as special rep
resentative of the bureau of educa
tion at the ceremonies, and Dr. Kenu
ric C. Babcock, specialist in higher
Rice Institute was made possible
by the munificence of William -Marsh
Rice, a native of Massachusetts, but
for many years a resident of Houston.
Before his death, in 1900, Mr. Rice
made far-reaching plans for the es
tablishment of a non-political and
non-sectarian institution, to be dedi
cated to the advancement of letters,
science, and art. During the long per
iod of litigation- that followed Mr.
Rice's death, the trustees called Dr~
Edgar Odell Lovett. a professor in
Princeton. University, a man of wide
experience and lofty aims,, to aid
them as president in realizing the
founder's aspirations. President Lov
ett was instructed to learn all he
pould about other institutions of
higher learning before beginning his
own. He traveled all over the world
in the interest of the new enterprise,
and returned in the summer of 1909
from a year's journey of study that
extended from England to Japan.
Meanwhile the trustees 'had secured
300 acres of land on the extension of
Houston's main thoroughfare as a site
for the institute, and engaged experts
to begin upon a comprehensive archi
tectural plan that would embody in
succeeding years the purposes of the
institute. By the fall of 191.2 build
ing operations had progressed so far
that it was deemed advisable to hold
formal dedication exercises and to
open th institution to students.
Conspicuous among the buildings
projected wddl be the special labora
tories for instruction and investiga
tion in physics, chemistry, and biol
ogy, and in the application of these
sciences to the arts of industry and
commerce In drawing the laboratory
plans the institute authorities had
the active co-operation of men like
Professor Ames, of Johns Hopkins
Professor Conklin, of Princeton Pro
fessor Richards, of Harvard, and Pro
fessor Stratton, director of the na
tional (bureau of standards.
The institute will be open to both
young men and young women, and
there will be no charge for tuition
and no fees.
