The twentieth century will probably
be the greatest commercial era that
the worid has ever seen. The nine
teenth century, with Its tremendoua
progress in the line of inventions and
along scientific discoveries, appears to
the thinking man as a preparatory
course for greater results to follow.
No matter what the world may have
been at the tin. of the beginning of
the Christian era; no matter what may
have been the prophecies of seers ln
the time that has intervened between
Moses and Ingersoll, the nineteenth
century came to be the great advance
period in the encircling of the earth
with the simple truths that found
their origin In Bethlehem, in Naza
reth and In Jerusalem. These were
the epitomes of honesty and fairdeal
ing between man and man. Looking I
over the circumference of the world as I
one may, certain principles prove to be
the basic principles not only in religion,
but in trade, and these have made their
way together. The world has had to
wait not only until the dawn, but for
the completion of the nineteenth cen
tury, to approach more nearly to finite j
knowledge and comprehension than has j
ever been reached by human intellect, i
The twentieth century, if all signs j
do not fail, will, in its very beginning,
bring every nation into solidified con
nection with the modern civilization of
the world, as advanced by the Anglo-
Saxon race. It is a beautiful study
for a thoughtful mind. The commence
ment of commerce between nation and
nation was a feeble endeavor, and the j
servic- was performed on the backs of '
asses and camels. Now we find the :
globe encircled with broad rims of |
steel. And when these And their limi- j
tations on the shore of the ocean the
great vessels of modern invention, into j
whose bowels the products of entire \
countries can be injected for transpor- j
tatlon to other peoples, are or ought I
to be standing ready to receive the of
ferings of commerce.
The whole subject of the world's j
commerce is a gigantic study. Strange- j
ly enough the states of this Union are !
at the close of the present century, !
looming up as a dominant power in
this trade. How Beriously do our pro
ducers comprehend the fact? How
thoroughly do they compute their own
possibilities in this connection? This
country is the richest in the world. To !
its shores must everlastingly turn the ]
eyes of those who seek the product '
necessary for individual sustenance I
and for material and mechanical ad- '
vancement Do our people thoroughly J
appreciate the advantageous position
which they occupy?
This country has reached the point
at which free trade with all the na
tions of the earth begins. The primary
avenue for the expulsion of our prod
ucts over the face of the earth exists
in a system of economic legislation
which shall provide the vessels neces
sary for distribution. The representa
tives of the people in ..ingress would
do well to study the elementary propo
sitioiV associated with free ship laws.
If we cannot build ships here as eco
nomically as other natiiys can build
thorn, there should be some device in
stituted by which they shoVld ba
brought into our service and perform
their part in the work of distribution
on a profitable basis. We need now
ships to carry our products to "Asiatic
ports, but we do not possess them
and we cannot secure them, except by
special act of congress. The recent
war has demonstrated the puerility of
our past legislation in this respect. Un
der the act of 1891, and under that
alone, was the United States govern
ment privileged to' avail Itself of the
services of the splendid trans-Atlantic
steamers of the American line in the
period of war. It was fortuitous legis
lation which rendered this claim pos
sible, and the fact ought to stand out
conspicuously before every man who
seeks to become a legislator in the
next congress, the membership of
which is to be elected in November
The United States requires, above all
things else, a merchant ma .ne serv
ice, which shall not only carry the
products of the people to other na
tions, but whicli shall conserve the '
revenues derived from :_uch service for j
the benefit of our people and not for I
the benefit of commercial a'. ents fly- j
Ing the fiag of other nations.
Leprosy and Ha wai'.
One of our fellow townsmen of St.
Paul, Dr. Burnside Foster, contributed
to the North American Review for
September c^tite an interesting artie.e
on leprosy and the Hawaiian annexa- j
tion. Dr. Fester calls attention to the
responsibility of the United States in i
connection with this disease and the I
eradication of it from tbe islands men- !
tioned. There Is no doubt about the
fact that leprosy is a product of the
worst forms of careless sanitation. Dr.
Foster claims that clinically there are
two varieties of the disease, viz.: The
tuberous and tho anaesthetic. Tho
combination of these two forms creates
the mixed type. He very sen.ibly
treats of the contagious feature of the
disease as due to the floating of germs
and their lighting in the nostrils or
upon some abrasion of tihe skin.
The leper has always been shunned
by humanity, and yet from a scientific
standpoint he has not been entitled to
the system of shunning which has been
practiced against him. The leper is t_n
unfortunate man and entitled to just
as much sympathy as one who falls a
victim to consumption or any othei
The main point to be considered m
connection with our responsibilities us
a nation, bo far as our government of
the Hawaiian islands i.s concerned, is
the expurgation of this disease from
among the natives. If the civilization
of the closing years of the nineteenth
century cannot find means for the de
struction of the germs which render
this unpleasant affliction possible, the
time has hardly arrived for us to put
our arms around this group and take
them into our family. There Is no more
reason apparently why leprosy should
exist on the volcanic slopes of the Ha
waiian islands than on the mountains
of Puerto Rico, another one of our de
Dr. Foster suggests the appointment
of a commission of bacteriologists
PXoperly equipped with every facility
for the study of the leprosy problem.
This is a very good suggestion. If we
are going to take in far-away lumps
on the surface of the earth, and holes
in volcanic countries, we want to know
what the things contain; and there are
a number of gentlemen, graduates of
scientific colleges, who would be pleas
ed to die in martyrdom over investi
gations as to the causes of these evils.

They can be spared if their lives are
required as a sacrifice. But this coun
try should get at the bottom of the
leprous evil at any cost. The name
ought not to be carried In the list .of
the diseases over whioh the flag of the
Union floats. Much has been done to
drive yellow fever from our household,
and our efforts have been reasonably
successful. But leprosy! Let every

Stone, of Missouri, fo R:buk?d.
Ex-Gov. Stone, of Missouri, nobody
in the broad length and breadth of this

rip .snorting gold Democrat would rec
ognize ln him a rip-snorting silver
Democrat, and they wouldn't rip-snort

The Missourian ls also a member of
the national Democratic committee,
and he is full of enthusiasm and push
for the cause. He visited the great
city of New York the other day, and,
finding that the Democracy of that
great state were on the eve of launch
ing a state campaign, he concluded to
break a bottle on the craft and wish
It Godspeed. Indeed, he wanted to do
more than that; he wanted to indicate
that silver should be the shining metal
ln general use throughout the noble
In charge of the Democratic state
| committee in that ancient town is a
I gentleman named Patrick H. McCar
! ren, a member of the state senate, a '
| long-beaded, shrewd observer and !
| careful politician — who never voted any |
I other than an organization ticket since j
he entered politics eUht.en years ago.
} He voted for Mr. Bryan like a little
I nun. He worked for his election, in
t Brooklyn, like a major.
The Missourian and the Brooklyn
j man have met and sparks have flown
j in consequence. The Missourian, for- ;
I getful fur the moment that he was |
j not in Missouri, told the reporters that j
i the New Yorkers ought to run a rip- j
snorting silver campaign this fall. Tne !
Brooklyn man is not a member of the I
rip- snorter school, ami when he read j
Mr. Stone's remarks he simply called |
a typewriter and wrote these words i
for the press, well aware that the Mis- j
sourian would see them, and so the j
formality of mailing would be unneed- ;

be paid io anything he or any other person
from Missouri may Bay about the affairs of
the Democratic party in New York state."
Tf Mr. Stone is foolish enough to
go up to Syracuse where the Demo
cratic Btate convention will be held,
and muss up things by meeting some
inconsequential gentlemen who style
themselves "free silver men," and who
are unknown to the party at large in

Secretary Healy, of the school board, in
the intervals between supper and bedtime,
has recently embarked in scientific experi

Jacob Now. alt is the past grand master ard
I a lot of otber things in tho Odd Fellows'
| crder. He has b.en in town a couple of days,
; and the fact that he is interested in 10 -ating
j the Odd Fellows' home at Owatonna appears
to hove no effect en hi . popularity. Mr.
Kewsalt tells a good story and that goes
far in helping a man in fraternal orders.
It is re'.a'e 1 of Mr. Newsalt that his mi .son
in life is the ruining of hotel keepers. He
snores with such assertion, with such abso
lute knowledge of how to make a noise aid
still go on sleeping that his reputation is
as broad as the Northwest is long. It is told
of him that he very nearly ruined the town
of Tracy when It was flrst started. He was
on the road at that time. He dropped into
Tracy one night and told the tavern keeper
that he wanted a bed all to himself. The
hotei man told him he would have the room
that was reserved for bridal parties. Mr.
Newsalt went out and did some business
and when he got back to the hotel he wanted
to go to bed at once. He was sent up to
the sparsely furnished bridal chamber and
found a big railroad man ln bed. He waa
snoring as though he was being paid for It.
"I took a look at him," said Air. Newsalt,
"and concluded that I could beat him. I wont
to bed. in two minutes I was asleep. In
ten minutes that fellow was down in front
of the stove ln the office. The next morning
I was Introduced to him and he not only re
fused to shake hands with me, but proposed
to give me a beating. It seems that he was
a conductor on a freight train and when he
went to sleep in the caboose the rumble of
t^p train was lost in the fog of his snore.
He was sore and he told so much about the
fellow that, he mot at Tracy that ever since
then I have never been able to get a room
in a hotel on tho floor on which anybody
else slept. Which," added Mr. Newsalt, "is
the principal reason for the fact that I am
quartered on Billy Johnson. I am told that
I've got to sleep ln Johnson's office, because
it is located in the only building in town in
which there are no people o' nights."

The sick and wounded of the Twelfth and
Fourteenth are fortunate in having in charge
of their hospital traiu, in part at least, Capt.
C. C. Whitney, the state expert printer. Capt.
Whitney has helped run trains before. He was
ono of the three, four, or Aye, who recently
hustled 185 hungry editors across the conti
nent and back at a rate that was rarely
equalled by a small party of ten or a dozen.
It required considerable executive ability and
not a little foresight to arrange for the
transportation of so large a party at such a
rate through a country poorly fitted with
accommodations for them, and while they
were not sick, the chances are that they were
not less exacting than the hospital boys will

the buttons have become so common
that small newsboys no longer consider
them an asset in street gambling. Ana
not a button of the lot was made ln
the state of Minnesota. Mr. Eustis de
liberately turned down the proposition
that was made to him to have the
buttons made in St. Paul, even though
the price made was lower than the bid
of the Eastern concern that is now
making the insignia.
When William Henry first became a
candidate he was approached by a St.
Paul man who desired to make his
campaign buttons for him and prices
were made. The result was that an or
der was placed by the candidate with
an Eastern concern, in spite of the fact
that the St. Paul man offered to do the
work at a lower price than that made
by the Nev Jersey bidders. It was not
complained by Mr. Eustis that the price
or the work was unsatisfactory, and
the presumption is that the order was
given in the East because it was a St.
Paul concern that made the local bid.
Harry Shepherd says that he would
have been willing to make the buttons
at the bare cost, and turn out all the
material in the state, if he had been
given an opportunity. That opportunity
was not given him. Tho following cor
respondence is .-elf-explanatory:

You wi_ remember I said to ynu that if j
those buttons only cost ?. per 1.0.0 I would i

stand by our agreement.
But, after having some of the best firrn^

Per Henry Shepherd.
• P. S. — If there has been a mistake in prlr o

This reply came a few days later:

Have tried to '"phone" you several times,
but to no avail.
'Mr. Shepherd says that the interview
with Mr. Eustis resulted in nothing.
"If the order had been placed in St.
Paul the result would be that all of
the local and county candidate.,
throughout the state would have order
ed their buttons in the state. I did not
particularly care for the work, but it

been placed here the material for all
of them would be made here. As It
stands now all of the orders will go
out of tho state. I don't know what
actuated Mr. Eustis in placing the or
der, but my offer to do the work for
less money than would be accepted by
the Eastern concerns and his refusal
to accept my proposal leads me to the
conclusion that he is opposed to giving
out any work in St. Paul. I made the
same complaint about Dr. Schiffmann
in the spring campaign, but I believe
that Dr. Schlffmann placed the order
for his buttons before he received my
bid. There could have been no mistake ;
about Mr. Eustis though, and he gave j
a possible large Industry a very direct j
slap in the face."

man's coat bears the imprint of a Con

Lieut. Lind. The meeting will perfect
the plan of campaign co far as it can

Yesterday there were many callers at
hi adquarters. Alex McKinnon, of
Crookston, who is going tv make the
run for the state treasurenmip, came
in yesterday morning. Mr. McKinnon
came down primarily to s.e to the en
trance of his boys at the state univer
sity, and will remain over to the meet
ing of today. He thinks very well of
the prospects for a successful cam
"If the rest of the state does as well
by tne ticket as we will do in the Sev
enth district there need be no question
of the outcome," said Mr. McKinnon."
"The district is pretty well organized,
and there ls no doubt of the earnest- .
ness of the people. They are out to
elect a set of state officers who will ad
minister the laws, and there will be
little necessity for campaign work. Of
course there will be a routine cam
paign, but the district i_ safe enough.
"VVe are fortunate," continued Mr.
McKinnon, "in having a candidate for
congress who cannot well be defeated.
It is absolutely certain that Mr. Ring
dal will be elected. His personal popu
larity in the district would result in his
election even if he did not represent
the principles that he does. There is
no possibility of a doubt with regard
to his election and the rest of the ticket
will run pretty well along with him.

own ground. There is no question of

a great advantage over the Republican
candidate in a personality that is win

statement by saying that he was not at

Mr. MoKinnon talked of the probable
results in the senatorial fight in Polk
county. He said that the Republicans
had nominated a strong man, who
could do a great deal of work on the
stump, in J. J. Ryder. He hoped that
the people of the county would not
be misled by the arguments that would
be put forth by Ryder on the stump,
but said that Mr. Gunderson would
undoubtedly have a fight on his hands.
Ryder will be r .nembered as a St.
Paul newspaper man who left the
ranks of the Democracy in the cam
paign of 1896 and who was at once
taken up by the Republicans. He is
an eloquent speaker and has consid
erable influence with the labor and
Populist vote throughout the state.
Mr. Gunderson was formerly the sher
iff of Polk county and has a large per
sonal following. The fight is going
to be an interesting one.
* * *
Incidentally, it has been given out
that Mr. Ryder will give some time
to the exploitation of the magnificent
results of Republican government in
this section. He has been in St. Paul
for a couple of days, and the Repub
lican committee is starring him as one

Capt. Harries, whose reputation as

to make the run. but he is the choice

would not accept it. The district in
