Isn't it great to be a citizen of the
old U. S. A?
Ifc unselfishness is the secret of
genuine happiness, there are many
persons, in Bemidji who must have
been joyful yesterday. Never before
has Christmas been observed here
in the spirit such as that which so
On next Monday Woodrow Wilson,
president of the United States will
have reached his fifty-eighth birth
day anniversary, having been born
December, 28, 1856. The nation's
chief executive will not allow the an
niversary to interfere with customary
daily routine, although he will be
obliged to spend a considerable part
of the day in receiving the greetings
of his cabinet officers, diplomats,
senators, representatives and other:
who will call at the executive offices
to offer their congratulations.
Next Tuesday is the day selected
for the holding of the Republiian
"harmony" conference which has
been called by Wm. E. Verity of
Wadena. Verity is confident that
the G. G. P. in Minnesota can be re
organized and made a vital, living
factor in politics two years lienco.
It is expected that more than one
hundred enthusiastic Republicans
will be at the St. Paul meeting and
that before adjournment some defi
nite step will be taken looking
towards the elimination of factional

northern part of the state are reflect

This organization starled some
years ago essentially as a voice of
protest against the intolerable con
ditions that faced the settler in the
timbered sections, says Farm Stock
and Home. It has become an order
of constructive suggestion for the
state betterment, and its programs
are keyed to the helpful rather than
the critical rtote. This attitude is
perhaps best understood by reference
to its recommendations.
It reiterates the necessity of the
revolving fund amendment lost at
the recent election.
It indorses the El well and Dunn
good road laws and insists that a sur
vey of soil be made before Amend
ment No. 9 is put into operation.
It wants the legislature to create
a fund to finance the clearing of
lands owned by the state or by actual
settlers asks the legislature to
authorize the organization of potato
growers' associations wants the
state to go into the manufacture of
dynamite if the plan is found fea
sible indorses the proposed reorgan
isation plans of the economy and effi
ciency ommisison and follows up
these practical suggestions by tak
ing its own advice and indorses a
proposal making its own organiza
tion more open and democratic than
it has been in the past.
All this makes for progress and
largely sets aside 'the fears of those
who looked upon the Northern Min
nesota Development association as
more a political than constructive
agency in the state's growth.
The Union don't wish ever to see
another elimination convention. It
made possible the election of a demo

A determined campaign is now be
ing waged to abolish the non-parti
san legislature and county candidate
law, repeal the primary law and at
the same time persuade the Progres
sives to return to the Republican
party in time to defeat President
Wilson in 1916. The pipe dreams
that some standpat editors have are
certainly curious and chimercal.
Battle Lake Review.
Why hot a public defender for
Minnesota and alt the other states of
the Union? It is notorious that the
majority o* the prosecuting attor
neys concede that the defendant is
guilty and proceed to carry on their
aide of the case along that line, do
ing their utmost to land the unfor
tunate victim in the pen, instead of
seeing that justice is really done.
While this would make employment
for more attorneys (of whom there
are far too many), it is the only fair
thing, if the statutes read that a
man is innocent until he is proved
guilty. An innocent man shouldn't

Not a Street, but a Convulsion, Says
In an address recently delivered be
fore the meeting of the American
Civic association at Washington Ar
nold W Brunner. a New York city
architect, said that "in Its present
state Broadway Is not a street it is a
convulsion Mr. Brunner further said
that every favorable chance for design
on Broadway had been thrown away
and that Times square and Madison
square are conspicuous instances, of
"Beginning at Fifty-ninth street, we
find Columbus circle a grievous disap
pointment." he went on to say. "Here
is an intersection of important streets,
an attenuated monument in tbe middle
and an entrance to Central park in the
picture, but the surrounding buildings
are distressing, and there is no compb
