The president has sent a special
message to congress, urging the
building of four new battleships.
Without wishing to criticise, the
Sheaf is nevertheless afraid that the
naval program is being carried a
little too far. We area great coun
try and must have a great navy,
but let us take time to build it.
Appropriations for military purposes
are not generally very Dopular and
it does seem that the enormous ex
penditures craved bv the navy, ought
to be strung out over a long series
Everything is favorable for a big
crop and the result depends on
future conditions. The acreage will
be increased in Minnesota and the
Northwest on account of the increase
of new farms which have been open
ed for operation. The increase will
be in barley, oats, corn, flax, and
wheat, in the order named, 01 more
coarse grain as against the larger
acreage in the past of wheat al
though the extent of the newly
broken ground insures that the acre
age in wheat will be maintained.
In vetoing the Rainy river dam
project, the president was actuated
solely by a desire to guard the in
terests of the public against what
may have turned out to be a rapa
cious private monopoly. The giving
away without cost to a private con
cern, stream rights, capable of de
veloping 1.300,000 horsepower, with
out asking any guarantee in return
for the privilege is clearly against
public interest and public policy. In
order to rush public improvements
it has sometimes been wise to grant
special previleges to individuals, but
the interests of the people ought to
be well guarded.
The republican ninth district con
vention at Crookston. yesterday, did
the proDPr thing in endorsing the
candidacy of Wm. H. Taft, for
president. There is no doubt that a
large majority of the voters of the
district, favor Mr. Taft's nomina
tion. He more nearlv than any other
man mentioned for the high office
represents the political ideals and
policies of President Roosevelt. No
other man in public life, not even
excepting the great president.
possesses more moral couraare and
force of character than he. The dis
trict and the state have done well
in supporting his candidacy. In
commending the faithful and valu
able services of Congressman Steener
son and endorsing him for re-election
the convention, also did what will
meet with the approval of the re
publicans of the district.
The discovery that graft lias exist
ed to a considerable extent in the
office of the state oil inspector, does
not redound to the credit of either
republicans or democrats. First it
was discovered that McDermott, a
democrat, who had held the office a
year and a half, was shy about $6,000
in his accounts. Then the democrats
in an endeavor to be able to sav to
the republicans "your another."
went an unearthed a shortage of
about $12,000, in the accounts of
Warner, the republican predecessor.
The graft of the one does not excuse
the graft of the other and both
officials deserve to be alike con
demned. The oil business seems to
offer more temptations than am
other business, and it is no wonder
that it has ruined the reputation of
men like Rockefeller, who have so
much oil on their hands.
The first period of the year has
seen an expansion of business passing
through the Union Stockyards at
South Saint Paul which is pheno
menal. There has been record break
ing receipts in every department,
and farmers are enjoving values
which are inclined to soar. Take
the slaughtering of hogs for commer
cial purposes, as an example, and
there is an increase.Z for this period
of 42 per cent. In fact 415.447 hogs
were sold at South Saint Paul during
the first three months of the year,
an increase of 185,00 on the number correspondin0
period of the
previous year. Minnesota alone con
tributed to this expansion an increase
of shipments*of 89 per cent. South
Dakota 72 per cent, and Wisconsin
Y^35 per cent, while the miscellaneous
^increases equalled 500 per cent. Meat
