The Murdock Review quoted
our announcement of the coin
ing of Debs last week and said.
"The Tribune was a little pre
vious in the above announce
ment, as Debs has been remand
ed to jail to serve about a year,
bis visit to Willmar will very
likely have to be postponed until
a later date.''
In this instance it is the Re
view that was too previous.
Debs is not in jail yet, and it will
be a source of regret to many
decent people when he is put
there. Some of these popinjay
sheets seem to enjoy to refer to
the able leader of the A. R. U. as
a common jail-bird, but the time
may come when they will regret
I their words. When they insult
him they also insult the large
s- body of railroad men who are
struggling for their rights. 1 #K

There is some trouble between
the supervisors of the Town of

hope this trouble will be speedi

he can undo the whole undertak
ing if any suits are brought or
trouble is caused the State in
regard to this matter.
Willmar wore the aspects of
festivity last Thursday. The
stars and stripes were floating
everywhere. Many poeople were
in from all parts of the county
and the weather being fine the
event was enjoyed by all. The
Memorial evercises of the day
were carried out with great suc
cess according to the program
The Knights of Pythias Uniform
Rank also turned out to do honor
to the occasion. Hon. Eddy de
livered an eloquent address to a
vast concourse of people at the
park Altogether it was a most
enjoyable, profitable and success
Hon. F- M. Eddy, our present
Congressman, was a visitor in
Willmar last week and the orator
on Decoration day. Mr. Eddy is
an intelligent and pleasant gen
tleman. He has already his hands
full in looking after the interests
of his constituents. To be Cong
ressman is no sinecure. He is
the representative nearest to the
people in our national govern
ment, and as such is the common
servant to whom everybody from
his district looks to for assist
ance and favors of various kinds
He must look after pensioners
whose cases are hung up for va
rious reasons, procure govern
ment printing matter to all that
ask for such, etc., etc. There is
nothing stuck up about Mr. Ed
dy, and he is ever ready to as

The success of the Peuny Press
under the able journalistic
genius of A. J. Blethen is phe
nomenal. It is now the official
paper of Minneapolis and only
an 18-months' baby. The Penny
Press has thus pushed itself to
the front simply on its merit.
Yes merit, first: as the .liveliest
and best newspaper of Minne
apolis, and second as raking the
popular and right side of the
great questiou of the day. The
Penny Press is THE reform daily
newspaper of the Northwest, and
no citizen that desires to be post
ed can afford to be without it.
Its immense circulation gives it
a range and effectiveness ,that
sweeps everything before it. It
reaches readers that no straight
out populist paper can touch
with a forty rod pole. The re
form press is simply sweeping
the State like a cyclone and no
earthly power san 'stop its on
ward march to victory in Minne
The pic-nic at Lake Andrew,
Sunday was, we believe, as far as
a general good time was con
cerned, a great success. Togeth
er with the fact that it was a
splendid day for such sport, a
cool, shady anil beautiful spot
on the north shore of the lake
had been chosen for the place of
fun, enjoymeut and recreation.
The pic-nic was gotten up for no
special purpose except to give
the people a chance to come to
gether for a day of association
with each other, and they cer
tainly took advantage of the oc
casion far and wide, to which the
crowd that was there is sufficient
testimony. Eloquent addresses
were made by Prof. B. S. Covell
and Dr. Johnson and music,
both vocal and instrumental,
was furnished in great plenty by
the Norway Lake Quartette and
the Norway Lake Cornet Band.
The crowd stayed until late, evi
dently being loth to leave. But
when it did leave, it could and
we believe it did leave with the
conviction that they had spent
the day very profitably and that
thle pic-nic of Lake Andrew would
long be remembered. %&$&**$
EUGENE V. DEBS.
The noted A. R. U. leader Eu
gene V. Debs was in Willmar
last Thursday. He did not speak
in public as expected for obvious
reasons. The fact is that Mr.
Debs is not a free man but un
der bonds to appear in Chicago
at any time he may be called up
on to serve a term in jail for a
breach of an injunction of the
court. Mr. Debs was here on
private business to help adjust
some difficulties between the
railway company and some A.
R. U. men. He said he did not
feel at liberty to appear publicly
but simply to tend to his special
errand. Hundreds of people
had come from the country with
the expectation of hearing him
and most of them were some
We just a a chance inter
view with Mr. Debs on the street.
We were somewhat anxious to
get a good square look at a real
live anarchist. We must con
fess that we were greatly sur
prised to find ourselves face to
tace with a clever, intelligent and
well bred gentleman He has an
honest, open and manly face.
There is no sign of assumed su
periority or haughtiness, but
rather a striking direct simplicity
backed up by a sincere earnest
ness. He is evidently conscien
tious in his -convictions. There
is not the least appearance of
scheming trickery about him.
His conversation is slow and
measured but evinces trained and
systematic thinking. His mind,
we should judge, is not of the
scintilating fiery kind that car
ries everything tor the moment,
but of the profound earnest cal
iber that leaves lasting impres
sions. His face betokens a kind
and sympathetic nature that
would shrink from all forms of
suffering. If we judged him
right it is his sympathetic na
ture that spurs him on to battle
for the rights of those that he
believes to suffer wrong. He
haa been called Czar Debs. But
there is no sign or symptom of
selfish ambition about his physi
ognomy. He is evidently a lead
er among his fellows, and to our
mind he is a noble and disinter
ested leader. The A. R. U.
must be an intelligent lot of men
to select such a moderate, well
balanced and plain looking man
as leader for the noble qualities
of mind rather than many no
doubt more showy and brilliant
men within the order.
Now these are simply our im
pressions of the correctness of
which we leave our readers to
PLANT FODDER CORN.
MR. EDITOR:—I am glad to see
that the farmers of this part of
the country have come to the
conclusion that they have to try
something else than exclusive
wheat raising. And as I notice
creameries starting up in several
places, it seems that dairying is
going to be a prominent feature
in our farming operations here
after. But we must remember
that to make a success we must
provide for our cows, something
that will keep up the flow of milk
after the natural grasses have
reached maturity, and as the
latter part of the summer is
generally dry, we should not for
get to put in a patch of'fodder
corn. It is not too late to do
that yet, and half an acre or
an acre will go a long ways
with a dozen cows. Flantitnear
the pasture or cow yard where it
can be cut and thrown over the
fence handy. You will be sur
prised how it will help your cows
and your pocketbook. I com
menced feeding it last summer
about the middle of July. I use
the large Southern varieties.
You can get the seed from seed
dealers in town or send after it.
It costs about $1.50 per bushel,
and that much will plant 2%
acres. Plant it like other corn
one way and from 6 to 10 inches
in drills the other. It grows
large and is very juiey and succu
lent, and stock of all kinds like it

WILLMAR, MINNESOTA, JUNE 4, 189b.
Graduating exercises at the
Kandiyohi village school occur
red Fiiday evening at the school
It was then first graduating
exercises held iii the district and
the class was ,greeted bv a full
house, many foing unable to
gain admittance. The appropri
ate motto "Aim Higher" was se
lected by the class.
There were five in the class:—
Emma Vadnais, Mary Law lor,
Andrew Anderson,Edward Matt
son and Ralph Stanford. Em
ma Vadnais recited an essay on
the life of Longfellow, and his
poem Flow ersy and both were well
received. Mary Law lor selected
Ambition for her essay. Her
thoughts on the subject were
very true. A boy or girl in the
schoolroom who wishes to suc
ceed must be ambitious. He
must step from the district school
to the high school and higher if
possible. He never ought to be
ashamed of what ought to be his
glory—that he ought to learn
more. The ambitious who secure
wealth should use it to better
mankind and not as Jay Gould,
who secured wealth for the sake
of wealth. She closed her es&ay
with a very apt quotation—a
lyric on action. Andrew Ander
son delh ered an oration on China
and the Chinese. He showed how
far behind other countries China
is in some respects, and if she had
tried to improve as little Japan,
she would probably not have
come out second best in the re
ceut war between those two coun
tries. Edw ard Mattson spoke on
Honesty. Thehonest man would
be the one who was always suc
cessful and that integrity was the
corner stone Of success and it
should be laid early in life. Our
first martyred president was call
ed "Honest Abe" aud any one
would be glad to follow in his
footsteps Ralph Stanford took
for his subject Music. He recited
Shakespeare's immortal quota
tion: "A man whohath no music
in his heart \$ fit for treason,
stratagem and jppoils." No mat
ter whether thgjnusic was of the
simplest ordefe&at stirred some
heart. Dumb animals in many
cases being quieted by the notes
from a flute. In time of war
music is used to spur man on to
greater deeds of valor. His clos
ing quotation was from our es
teemed poet Longfellow7:
"And the night is filled with
And the cares that infest the day
Shall fold their tents like the
Arab and as silently steal
Supt. Covell was present and
addressed the audience and class.
The class then received their
diplomas from Mr. C.Gabrielsou,
clerk of the school board.
The vocal music consisted of
four selections given by a quar
tette composed of the Misses
Kate Burns, Phi Harris, and
Messrs. C. Peterson, W. Cook,
with Miss Blanche Kimball as
organist. The school choir sang
Prof. Rognlie of the Willmar
Seminary gave some very fine
selections on the violin. He was
accompanied on the organ by
Miss Coe of Willmar.
The exercises passed off very
pleasantly and creditably to the
class and all hoped the school
would be able to graduate a" class
