With' W candidates tor judge of
municipal court, the average voter is
going to find himself-wondering how
hei'sto ttidow which man is the best
fitted for the position. Fortunately,
all of the candidates have had some
training and practice in the law.
The municipal court, or'police
court as it is better known, has
jurisdiction over such cases as asmtis
sault and battery, disturbing the
peace, resisting an officer, failure to
obey city ordinances, etc. The
principal qualifications needed in a
police judge are a knowledge of law
and court procedure, sympathy for
the unfortunate and patience.
The problem which confronts the
voter, then, is to seek out the qualifi
cations of each candidate, measure
him by the needs of the office, and
Ito the Good of The People.
Among-the- bills -now before the
'legislature*'6ne id more distinctly
for the" good of the -people than the
.Dunn road measure,- Increasing the
estate levy to one mill and incidental
ly relieving St. Louis county of thePaul
hindrance impbse'd"by the old law
limiting this county's levy to one
quarter of one mill.
The advantages of good roads have
'been held up to public view so often
that the subject is much frayed about
the edges. But for all that it is-a
live one, particularly in ^localities
such as this county presents.
Within the last few years the sub
ject has been handled not only as a
theory, but in actual practice, and it
is possible now to go 'into places
where road improvements have, been
made on an extended scale, and com
pare results with conditions that ex
isted before the improvements were
In several places in our own state,
within recent months, reports have
been made on the effect of road im
provement, and in every one of them
It has been demonstrated that the
advantage in facilities for transpor
tation has brought more trade to
commercial, line, and been a saving
to farmers and others who use the
highways. Such a result is inevit
able, for a man with produce to sell
or who is seeking to -buy something
will drive to a place ten miles away,
it the roads are good, rather than td
a locality only six miles away if the
roads are bad. And he can make the
longer trip with less loss of time and
less wear and tear on his team and
wagon than he could, the shorter one
Everybody uses the roads/ or at
least uses articles that have -to be
transportated over them, and any
thing that helps to bring better high
ways means just that-much gain for
the people.Duluth Herald.
