possible candidates for the bench to fill the

they are not candidates. The general com

The supper given by the Young Men's
Democratic club last evening at the
Guaranty Loan restaurant proved a
highly sociable and pleasing event. It
was attended by the majority of the
members of the club, and many promi
nent local Democrats. The supper was
in six courses, to which the party was
seated at 8:30 o'clock. After it had
been disposed of and cigars lighted,
William Baldwin, president of the club,
made a short address of welcome to
this initial social attempt by the club.
He announced that three addresses
would be delivered, treating with the
outlook of the Democratic party. S. R.
Chflds spoke upon the subject from a
state standpoint, and was followed by
Thomas D._ O'Brien, of St. Paul, mem
ber of the national committee, who
spoke upon the topic from a national
point of view. Mr. O'Brien's address
was an able effort, and met with tne
approval of the entire gathering. He
MR. O'BRIEN'S ADDRESS.
Minneapolis should be congratulated upon
having a Young Men's Democratic c'.ub of
the character 01 the men here. It is grati
lying to see men in politics who have the
virtues of youth. We hear a great deal of
the fogies of youth, but as I grow older 1
like to contemplate some youtniui virtues.
The rightly constituted young man is high
minded, brave and generous — he fills our
armies in time of war because he is willing
to make a sacrifice for home and country.
He is actuated by other than mere selfish or
sordid motives. His dreams and ambitions
for the future include ruoie than himself.
He still loves with all his yomhCul enthusi
asm the good, the true and the beautiiul.
In this spiiit must the American of today
perform his duties of citizenship, not as a
mere spoilsman, not as a member of a cor
rupt political machine, but as a patriotic
lover of his country, using his influence first
for his country's good.
The problem of our time is how to adjust
the powers of government to the changed so
cial and industrial conditions brought about
so largely by the discovery of forces of nrv
ture hitherto unknown. Human nature has
r-ot changed, there is still the same small,
but well organized and powerful few seek
ing the : r own aggrandizement against the
unorganized, and therefore w.ak. many. To
stand between these opposing forces, to con
cede to the minority their full rights, but to
resistto the utmost their unwarranted en
croachments ac the barons did at Runmeyde
is the task of the enlightened citizen of to
It would be impossible on the present oc
casion to do more than suggest some of the
most important questions now necessary to
be considered by the people of this country —
indeed, these questions are world-wide. But
here the final decision resting with the whols
people, our situation is peculiar in this, that,
while here one would naturally suppose an
economic difficulty would be at once solved'
upon the principle of the greatest good to th_>
greatest number, yet where a reform is nec
essary there must first be overcome the In
ertia of a people accustomed to think their
liberties secure, and the agitation necessary
to arouse them may produce a reaction so
violent that wrong and di&aster will follow
first and reform only after one of those awful
struggles which blot the pages of history.
In an effort to arrive at the truth of a dis
puted question it is always well to know
what is disputed and what is admitted to b2
true. Now I think you will find no one who
will dispute the following propositions: First,
that our constitution aims to maintain, as far
as .possible, equality among men and to pro
tect the weak against the strong, to this ex
tent, at least, that the thrifty and industrious
man shall have the opportunity of supporting
himself by honest. Independent toil and in t.h .•
meantime be sustained and cheered by the
hope and fair prospect of advancement. Sec
ond that the concentration of wealth, accom
panied with the creation of monopo.ies and
the consolidation of the great industries of
the country in the hands of a few, is de
structive of those constitutional aims.
These propositions are elementary, and. as
I say no one will dispute them. But we do
not always realize how nearly they effect us
in our daily life. The concentration of wealth
and power" in the hands of a few means the
closing of the avenues of fa<r success to the
many It means the breeding of corruption
in pubMc officials, great and small, until pub
lic honesty becomes a by-word. It means
the extinction of independent American man
hood and the substitution of a mercantile and
professional class who fear to express an
opinion not approved of by a lord otmojiov
olv or Napoleon of finance, and finally, it
hives a popular government nothing but Us
defects its insufficiencies and its vices.
Understand me. 1 do not mean to say that
this is the aim of concentrated wealth; it Is
the inevitable result. Many a corporation
seeking to do a legitimate business in a legit
imate manner has been blackmailed by a cor
rupt legislator or other public officer Into
feeding his rapacious maw. but the fact re
mains that from the boodle alderman to the
bond syndicate secretary of the treasury,
nothing: has been so productive of d.shones y
and corruption as the insidious effort to
monopolize the wealth and industries of the

existence of any such cv.l. It proposes no

for are necessary to the perpetuation of this
government. And when I say this, I do not
speak from a party standpoint, for I can see
the time might easily come when it would
be as high a duty to defeat the Democratic
party as It is now to overthrow the Republi
can. The conscientious voter who leaves his
party finds no hostile critic in me, for I
reserve to myself the right at all times to
cast my ballot according to the dictates of my
conscience — but the man who leaves his party
at the command of a political, social or cor
porate overseer forfeits his rights of citizen
ship and merits dlsfranchisement.
In the great unterrifled Democracy we find
the hope of th s nation. The party that had
vitality sufficient to enable it by its own
strength to cast off the false prophets who
were leading It to its destruction and to un
cite anew the proad principles upon which
this government was found. No party plat
form can, item by item and deta.l by de
tail, specify every step it proposes. Its decla
rations must be confined to broad general
statements of fundamental principles, and so
we find that the Democratic party in its battle
for the people and for the perpetuation of
popular government says that the money of
the country, the life blood of commerce, the
"common drudge 'twixt man and man" shall
not be diruinshed or cornered by the con
tinuance of the single gold standard; that
trusts and monopolies shall not be fostered
by a high protective tariff; that if an ordi
nary revenue tariff is not sufficient to meat
the expenses of the government, economically
administered, an income tax, the most just
form of taxation known, shall be imposed
upon those who=e incomes are sufficiently
large to endure it without its working an op
pression of the poor. That the constitutional
provisions of this government shall be ma n
tained, and that government by injunction
means a usurpation by the judicial branch
of the government of functions not belonging
to it and constitutes a violation of the law
by the very tribunal charged with its en
It is a remarkable thing, and one that
shows how truly conservative the attitude of
the Democratic party is at this time, that
the Chicago platform enunciates no new doc
trine. While, as I have said, industrial and
business conditions have changed so rapidly
that the question is pertinent whether the
time has not arrived to so change our funda
mental law that the people may be better
able to regulate and control the huge agencies
of commerce which have sprung up in our
midst, the Chicago platform proposes that for
the present we shall only hold fast to the
original limits of this government.
Look then, at the situation of this country
today, examine the attitude of the two par
ties, and say where lies your duty. Straws
show the direction of the wind, driftwood
] upon a river indicates whether the water is
j falling or rising, the moss upon a tree shows
the points of the compass, and so the charac
j ters and dispositions of the persons which a
party attracts to itself show its tendencies
Until such time as the rank and file of the
Republican party revolt from the rule of
those who now hold that party in thrall,
I even the Democratic party was held prior to
the Chicago convention, its success is a
menace to this country.
In his desire to better himself the Ameri
can sometimes involuntarily places himself
above his class. The small trader thinks
himself a capitalist, the plodding professional
man thinks he is of the aristocracy, and the
absurdity is often presented of some timid
but well-meaning, out-at-the-elbows fellow
shuddering at the fear of arousing the
Let us remember that the opportunities of
America have resulted in raisin.j the people
altogether; that we still are of the people
and that their interests are our niterests and
Next to being afraid of one's self, the great
est absurdity which timidity can commi] is
to fear the creatures of one's imagination,
and the attitude of some of our little-big men
reminds me of two sisters who as children
slept together. One was timid and nervous,
the other self-reliant and confident. The
timid child had often great difficulty in going
to sleep, and one night, after exploring under
the bed and listening to imaginary burglars
and various other distractions had brought
her to a high pitch of excitement, her more
practical companion suggested that an excel
lent way of inducing sleep was to imagine
that one was counting a large flock of sheep
as they followed each other over a fence.
This plan seemed to work satisfactorily, but
just as the elder sister had concluded that
she had at last secured her own and the
child's composure, she was disgusted to hear,
"Mary! Mary! I am afraid of the sheep."
Let me again congratulate the young men
of Minneapolis upon this organization. It has
become fashionable tc sneer at politicians,
but this country requires today more than
ever that the young, intelligent and conserva
tive American should take an active part in
the affairs of his country. Why should we
leave the management of public affairs to
the depraved, the vicious and the venal? The
business spirit of the age must not be carried
to such a point that the American citizen
would be willing to surrender the heritage
of freedom he has received for the mere accu
mulation of wealth, t
One day we must account to another gen
eration for the use we have made of our
rights of citizenship, and if we do not resign
to them this government as pure and un
sullied as we received it, changed only for
the better as time and experience may teach
us to better it, what answer or explanation
shall we make to those for whom we now
hold It in trust?

HARVEST HANDS RETURN.
A Grand Rnah for Employment in
The employment offices near the union sta
tion are busy places these days. Every day
sees a large number of laborers arrive at
the various depots In the city from all points
in the Northwest, and the managers of the
bureaus have their hands full taking care of
the motley array. Threshing is said to be
practically finished In most sections of Min
nesota, though the men coming in from the
extreme northern points of North Dakota
say there is still a good deal of work to be
It would be imposible to estimate the num
ber of "hands" who have been following
thrcsbing outfits in this state and the Dako
tas that are finding their way to this city
daily. The Northern Pacific brings in num
bers on nearly every train, and. of course,
the other roads that tap the country north
west of Winneapolis get their share of the
travel of this class. Inquiry among the men
themselves reveals the fact that there has
never been such a rush of men of all sizes,
descriptions and nationalities to the harvest
fields of the Northwest as has been noted this
fall. As a result wages have been lower than
generally prevail at this season of the year
on the farm. In past seasons harvest hands,
Including those who work in the wheat fields,
binding and shocking the grain, and later
those who hire out to owners of threshing
out.its. that is. become members of the
"crew" that goes from farm to farm and
threshes out the farmer's grain, found little
or no difficulty in commanding $2 a day. It
has been different this year, however. There
were so many men on the ground for every
job that $1 per day has been considered a
fair average wage.
Of course the man who went a little late
in the season to the wheat fields and found
lo'a of more enterprising individuals there
ahead of him, had hard work to find anything
to do at any price, and. in fact, many there
were who paid their money for railroad fare
and came back with nothing to show for it.
But the men who are so much in evidence on
the streets adjacent to the union station
these days, the ones who haunt the employ
ment offices, are fcr the most part the "ones
who were early enough in the field to catch
on. They are here now looking for more
work, but the city has not much to offer
them in the way of employment, and, as a
consequence, there are large numbers lead
ing every day for the woods in Northern Min
nesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

the offices designated.
The report of the treasurer showed
an entire absence of debt as a result
of the year's work, provided receipts
between this and Nov. 1 are included,
as is usually the custom. The total
receipts for the year were $15,589.69;
expenditures, $14,773.81, leaving a bal
ance of $815.88.
Important topics in the convention
board's report were discussed by Rev.
Frank P. Leach, chairman of the com
mittee on important topics, who com
mended the recommendation of the
board to the effect that there should
'be a concentration of the missionary
forces of the state some time during
the year upon some special field. A
ministers' summer institute was slso
believed to be an excellent plan, and it
was urged upon the convention to
move in that direction. The co-opera
tion of small churches in employing
joint pastors was believed to be de
sirable. The limitation of expendi
tures to a sum not to exceed 10 pet
cent of the average receipts for the
three years previous, according to the

ciety, with headquarters at Chicago.
After a brief review of the difficulties
through which the society had passed
in past years, he expressed his firm
hope in the success of the society from
the present on. He then turned his at
tention to the proposed plnn of "doub
ling up" of small churches, which, he
thought, good, but requiring discre
tion in its exercise. He also touched
upon the matter of self-support and
district missionary service.
The report of Rev. J. W. Conley,
chairman of the commission on syste
matic beneficence, was then made. His
first recommendation was for the dis
tribution of literature explaining the
plan for systematic giving, and the fol
lowing plan was recommended: That
the churches be arranged into five dif
ferent divisions, to one of which each
church shall belong, its relation to the
same being designated in the Baptist
annual by the number of the division
to which it belongs.
"The National Commission" was then
discussed by Rev. Dr. H. L. Morehouse.
"The great problem before us is this:"
he said, "How to get every member of
God's church to contribute regularly,
systematically and conscientiously to
all of the objects of work before the
Baptist church. We do not discipline
people for failure to keep their finan
cial pledges," he continued. "Its about
time we begin." He approved the
plan, proposed by the state commis
sion, to divide the churches into five
divisions and fix the objects of bene
ficence. He impressed upon the con
vention the importance of symmetrical
development, concertration of effort,
and responsibility to the church organi
zation, in which the contribution is
made, and conformity to its rules.
"This is not to get more money out
of people, but to get right motives for
benevolence into the heart 3 and minds
of the people," he emphasized. "In
considering the matter of our gifts to
church work it ought to be remembered
that one-tenth of our income is not
always all that we should give. Our
capital belongs to God, and we should
be ready to give it." Report was re
feired to the board with power to act.
After a question box on the subject
of beneficence, and a solo by Mrs.
Buckbee, of the First Baptist church,
Rev. W. B. Riley delivered an address
on "Christian Use of Property." His
address related chiefly to the matter of
individual beneficence, which he felt
had been curtailed to an extreme de
gree. He urged giving according to
the prosperity bestowed, and empha
sized the proposition that nothing less
was acceptable. Mr. Riley in refuta
tion of the charge that ministers are
not good financiers, said that as a rule
they made as much as average busi
ness men. "If I was to go into business
and didn't make more than most busi
ness men, I'd quit," he said.
Last night's session of the Baptist state con
vention proved the largest of the week thus
far. Every seat In the house was taken,
chairs were brought in and finally the doors
into the lecture room had to be thrown open.
After a short praise service, conducted by
President Emerson. Rev. F. Linden, one of
the state missionaries, and pastor of the
Bethel Swede church, of Duluth, was called
upon to report the condition of the work
in his field. In responding he stated that
his church was the center of a population of
10,000 Swedes in the c.ty of Duluth, of which
500 were members; that if his church could
be free from the embarrassment of debt it
would be able to reach not only the Swedes
of Duluth, but of all the surrounding coun
N. L. Christian, recently called from dis
trict missionary work to the pastorate of the
Danish Baptist church, o<f Kasson, Misn.,
urged strongly a greater ehui.. among the
Dames of the state. Various other brandies
of the work were presented by Itev. P. H.
Heinnemann, R. J. Kennedy, a student mis
sionary, and Rev. G. H. Gamble, respect vely.
Rev. E. R. Pope, in a very happy style,
then called upon the convention to contribute
funds for the purchase of a gospel wagon
and team of horses for the use oi Rev.' C.
T. Hallo well, district m sMonary of Vhe North

"Our greatest need is not more money,"
he said, "not better missionary methods, nor
a half dozen other things that might be
named, though all are desirable, but more
Christian love. Without love liberal giving
proflteth nothing. Without love church
beneficence and endeavor are comparatively
nothing. Is not, therefore, the greatest need
love?" He then named as the three great
objects of love, God, fellow Chrisitians and
the unsaved, and claimed that each of them
demanded the love of every true Christian
who wished to be symmetrically developed in
the Christian life. He closed with a pas
sionate appeal for the greater awakening
of this greatest of Christian graces in the
hearts of the clergy and laity alike. The
address made a deep impression, and, though
nearly an hour in length, was listened to
throughout with the closest attention.

BRIDE WON FORGIVENESS.
Happy Onteome of a Secret Inter
Love may be blind, but it can be
diplomatic and even strategic at times,
as the romance of Frank Van Anden j
of 65 Pierrepont street, Brooklyn, wilf 1
prove. This young man Is the petted ;
son of a rich "family. Since his child- j
hood, which was not so very many !
years ago, his father and mother have
denied him nothing. Last year he ac
compan'ed his father and mother and
two sisters on a tour through Europt.
Upon the plea that he wished to stu'ly
the German language thoroughly he
decided to remain in Berlin, while the \
rest of the family continued on their
tour of sightseeing. While studying
in the German capital Frank con
tracted a secret marriage with a pretty
young German girl named Ida Kess
berg Fearing his parents' disapproval
when they learned of the fact, the
youn? husband evolved a novel scheme
to win their approval to the match.
He returned home last spring, after
several months' absence, and it was
wonderful to hear him speak German.
His sisters, who were prize German
scholars at Vassar, were almost at a
loss to keep pace with him. But m
his eagerness to acquire a colloquial j
familiarity with the language Frank ,
had omitted to learn how to write it.
He had a good position in the Realty
company, but he had been promised
promotion to the head of the German
department if he could direct the cor- ;
poration's correspondence in that
tongue Would Papa Van Anden ad- :
vertise for a competent teacher?
Mr Van Anden advertised for an in
structor in German rhetoric. Naturally !
he expected an answer from a man—
from many men. But to his surprise ;
when he got home that evening he
found that his daughters had engaged
a charming young woman. She was a ;
treasure. Of course, her good looks j
were against her, but then she was so j
talented and so refined and so well
bred. On could see ai a glance that
she was a lady. Mr. Van Anden was
almost bored by his daughters' en
thusiastic praise of the new teacher.
And she was so kind. She had prom
ised to help them in their German; to
let them study with Frank.
The new teacher was quite as young
and pretty as the Misses Van Anden
described her. Moreover, she was an
excellent Instructor. Mr. and Mrs. Van
Anden were almost tempted to taite up
German too. The teacher was Miss Ida
Kessberg, recently arrived from Ber
lin Young Van Anden accepted in a
bored fashion his sisters' suggestion
that he should escort Miss Kessberg
home every evening. He pretended not
to care for that privilege, but his. sis
ters threatened to boycott him If he
did not show Miss Kessberg proper at
tention. The lessons and all the rest
of it might have been going on yet if
Frank Van Anden had not moved to
Bay Shore, when his parents and sis
ters went to the family home at Isllp,
L. L, in the summer.
A neighbor congratulated Fapa Van
Anden one day on his son's lovely
wife, and the old gentleman began to
wonder. At the first opportunity he
asked Frank when the family might ;
have the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Van |
"Oh, you know her well enough — as
Miss Kessberg," replied the young
There was a reunion at the Isllp j
home of the Van Andens that evening j
that was more like a bit of stage j
play than a scene in real life. Already
prepossessed in favor of Miss Kessberg,
the family welcomed her gladly as sis- j
ter-in-law and daughter-in-law. Frank
admitted that he had married her in
Berlin last spring, and that he had
chosen that ingenious plan of having
her meet his family through an adver- J
tisement, so that they might all fall I
in love with her as thoroughly as he

THE DURATION OF LIFE.
A Man Might Possibly Live to Be
One Hundred and Twenty-Five.
In the average statistics of human
life it has been found that women live
longer than men; the reason for this
appears to be simple, says the Nine
Up to the age of twenty to twenty
five the man is undoubtedly younger
and less developed than the woman;
but in the next twenty or thirty years
of his life the man ages much more
rapidly, because, apart from the strain
and hardship of a profession, the ex
posure to unhealthy climates, the dis
appointments of fortune, he oftens
leads a life of dissipation and excess,
which early puts its stamp on his fore
head and turns his hair gray before its
time. The woman, on the other hand,
v* ho. has often more than her share of
anxieties, as, apart from the many ac
cidents of life, but one serious and in
evitable danger, that of the perpetua
tion of her race, which, safely passed,
renovates rather than ages, and in
creases a woman's chance of longevity.
From the few facts that I have ven
tured to put together we may deduce,
I think, the following- conclusions,
which trust may be found of some in
terest by those who desire to have a
general view of the expectation .of life,
its real duration and the possible
causes of its length and brevity.
First— That, according to the best
authorities of the last century, the ex
treme limit of life might be 125 years
under extraordinary and almost abnor,
Second— That the anticipation of life
is roughly five times the time that the
crgans of the body— not counting the
brain, which develops later — require to
attain their full and absolute maturity.
This, of course, varies not only in
races, but in individuals, some de
veloping early and some much later,
even in the same climate and in the
Third— That rarely, if ever, is that
full duration achieved, owing to dis
ease, food, heredity, bad habits, wear
and tear, and many other causes which,
Fourth— The slower the development
the longer may be the duration of life.
Fifth— That all human beings are not
born with the capacity for long life
even under the most favorable circum
stances. As the organism of the hu
man being is more complex than that
of the lower animals, so his anticipa
tion of life is far more variable.
Sixth— That those circumstances
which conduce to longevity are un
doubtedly late development frugal
habits, moderation, exemption from
vicissitudes of climate and extreme of
heat or cold, from mental worry and
agitation, temperance in eating and
drinking, with a fair amount of brain
work when the brain is ready to under.
We have all heard the well-worn
axiom attributed to the Psalmist that
the "days of man are threescore and
ten;" but in Genesis vi., 3 will be found
the following passage: "Yet his days
shall be an hundred and twenty
years." This passage seems to have
-been overlooked, as I have rarely seen
it quoted, although curiously enough it
exactly corresponds to the theory that
man should attain five times the period
of reaching his maturity.
