First Woman Editor.
Mrs. George E. Erickson, of Spoon
er, has bought the "Northern News"
and so becomes the first woman editor
of Beltrami county. Mrs. Erickson
bought the paper from Joseph E.
Huss who founded the paper five and
one-half years ago.
The special session of the legisla
ture held last summer was notable
because it did so much in the short
time it was convened. From the retleman,
sults so far, the present session may
be a repatition of the old "do noth

The United States supreme court
has given another decision based on
the famous or "in" famous rule of
reason laid down in the Standard Oil
and Tobacco cases. It has decreed
that the Shoe Machinery trust is not
a violation of the anti-trust law. No
company can make a pair of shoes
unless it leases the machinery neces
sary from this trust. The trust asks
plenty for its machines. Such de
cisions make Socialists of us all.
First Minnesota Conviction.
A. R. Ruhnke, president of the
Minneapolis Milk company, was yes
terday found guilty of conspiracy to
raise the price of milk. Ruhnke was"
one of five indicted and the first to
be tried. The conviction carries a
penalty of up to five years and $5,-
This is the first conviction under
the Minnesota anti-trust laws. Evi
dence in the case was largely secured
by the use of a dictograph which was
placed in the room in which the five
indicted men met andagreed on the
raise. A stenographer at the other
end took down the supposedly secret
conversation. Attorneys for the de
fense tried to impeach the testimony
of the stenographer but were unsuc
It is possible that the case may be
fought to the supreme court in order
to test the validity of the law. On
the face of it, the people have a rem
edy for some high prices.
Must Get Together.
The eyes of Minnesota, and espec
ially the commercial interests of the
twin cities, are on Bemidji this week
watching to see if the people of the
city and the people of the farms can
get together Thursday on a scheme
through which the country can be
stocked with sheep. The feasibility
of the plan has been pointed out un
til there is little doubt left but that
sheep can be successfully grazed on
our cut over brush lands.
Others than the farmers are com
iug here Thursday to attend the
sheep meeting. A. E. Chamberlain,
development agent of the" Great
Northern, will be here. H. J. Max
iield, state immigration commission
er W. R. Mackenzie, secretary of the
Northern Minnesota Development as
sociation President Magivny, of the
South St. Paul Union Stock yards
H. H. Hughes, editor of an agricul
tural magaine, and men of more local
prominence will attend the meeting.
It is^o the direct interest of every
business man in the city who can get
the time to attend the meeting at the
High school those who do not go up
in the afternoon should go to the
Commercial club in the evening. A
sheep industry here means land
cleared at a low cost, meat and wool
to ship out, and possibly later a wool
Intolerance on the Bench.
Comment a newspaper may make
upon a libel suit is apt to be miscon
strued, but certainly no reader will
accuse any newspaper of going be

of Judge Joseph A. Guthrie against
William R. Nelson as infamous.

tor with a zeal for public service,
criticized in his paper, the Kansas
City Star, the action of Judge Guth
rie in a certain case/ which was a
matter of record. The merits of that
criticism need not be considered here.
It is enough to note that Judge
Guthrie sumomned Nelson to court
on a contempt charge, and that Guth
rie himself acted as complainant" pro
secutor and judge, -refused -Nelson an
opportunity to make a full defense,
and imposed a sentence which had
been written out before Nelson was
brought into court.
If that situation can be beaten for
insolence and intolerance of public
rights the average citizen would like
to know how and where. Mr. Nel
son's article may have been unjust.
We do not pretend to know as to, that.
But one needs to know nothing of the
merits of a case, to know that when
a judge acts as prosecutor, jury and

independent candidate for re-election
as alderman ortne Third ward, to be
voted upon at the oity election to be
held Feb. 18, 1913.
The support of the voters of the
Third ward is respectfully solicited.
The interest of of the ward and the
years was supposed to be' incurable. For
a great many years doctors pronounced
it ~a local disease and prescribed local
remedies, and 'by constantly failing to
cure with local treatment, pronounced
it Incurable. Science has proven Ca
tarrh to be a constitutional disease, and
therefore requires constitutional "'treat-
ment. "Hall's Catarrh Cure manufactur
