HE Princeton UNION uses very
strong language in denouncing the sil
ver repeal bill which congress has just
passed, and yet it supports Senator
Washburn for re-election next year.
Now the senator was one of the leaders
in the movement for repeal, and glori
fies his action upon it. The two things
seem to be very inconsistent.Monti

The UNION is not supporting any
candidate for any office at present.
AFT ER the repeal of the silver clause
of the Sherman hill was accomplished
silver fell three cents and. so did wheat.
The wise ones told us only repeal this
bad law and everything would boom,
but it obstinately refuses to boom so
far.Todd Cotmty Aigus.
Editor Dare of El River or
Hon. Frank E Searleof St. Cloud,
the doughty champions of "hon
est" money, should proceed forth
with to enlighten Bro. Sheets.
MENAG E, the colossal Minneap
olis thief, has been arrested in
Guatemala, and Schieg, the Min
neapolis bank robber, is in dur
ance vile at Southampton, Eng
land. Both these worthies will be
extradited and brought back to
Minnesota to stand trial. If jus
tice is meted out to them they will
spend the balance of their days
behind prison bars. Menage's
whereabouts were discovered by a
member of the Minneapolis Journal
S. CLARKSON, the astute Iowa
politican, in an interview at Ne
York the other day said: '"This
silver panic has been altogether a
silver panic created by the bankers
for their own interests and politics
have had nothing to do with it.
If it was on account of the silver
question that trade was depressed
its revival, should be great and im
mediate. If the government has
pulled the right tooth out of the
patient he should get well. I
don't believe, however, that the
silver question was the cause of
the depression. Th real reason
was the unsettled state of the
country consequent on the change
in the administration and the prob
ability of a change in the financial
charged by Attorney Arctander of
Minneapolis with receiving
sonal interest" from banks where
State funds are deposited, particu
lar reference is had to the defunct
Bank of New England of Minne
apolis. Arctander claims to have
discovered that that bank paid the
State three per cent., and Mr. Bob
leter 2$ per cent, "personal inter
est" on State monies. Th law
provides that the State shall re
ceives not less than three per cent,
interest on its deposits, and if any
larger rate of interest has been
paid it should go to the State and
not into Treasurer Bobleter's
MOST of us will find it just as hard to
get a dollar as before.Elk River Star
Then, what are you belly-aching
about? Why go into hysterics
over the repeal ot the purchasing
clause of the Sherman law? Th
market reports indicate that "most
of us will find it just as hard (and
a little harder) to get a dollar as
before." Why stigmatize those
who honestly believe in bimetal
lismfree coinage if you will have
it soas "cranks and small-bore
politicians?" If, as you pretend
to believe, the advocates of "hon
est" money are in such an over
whelming majority why should
any sane person with political am
bition seek to incur the displeasure
of the many for the sake of gain
ing the good will of a few cranks?
The editor of the UNION is one of
those who sincerely believes that
the great majority of the common
everyday people of this country
are opposed to the demonetization
of silver, and furthermore, we be
lieve that a contraction of the cur
rency will, in the long run, prove
injurious to the interests of the
producing and debtor classes.
Adding Insult to Injury.
Bob Dunn, of the Princeton
UNIO N, denounces the Journal as
sacreligious because this paper
"has no respect for Editor Pease's
hairless head." Mr. Dunn must
take that back. Th Journal has
the utmost respect for the Anoka
editor and would rather gaze upon
his shining pate than anything else
in the Midway Plaisance.Minne
apolis Journal.
A man applied at the clerk's of
fice yesterday for a marriage
license. did not know the
woman's first name or that of her
parents. was sent back to the
woman's home in the country to

About Tariffs.
Seyeral hundred years ago, on the
southern-most point of the province of
Cadiz. Spain, there was (and is yet) a
small town called Tarifa. Situated at
about the narrowest part of the Straits
of Gibralter, it was the northern port
for the trade carried on between Spain
and Africa. The Moors, who then
dominated Southern Spain, levied trib
ute-on the vessels engaged in the trade,
and this exaction, from the place
where it was practiced, was called a
"tariff." Hence the schedule of duties
now levied by most nations on imports,
are called a tariff on the same.
Among the important political ques
tions which have divided the people of
the United States, since the beginning,
the tariff has always been very prom
inent. "Protection," "free trade" and
"tariff for revenue only," have been
rallying cries for our political
parties. But there are other tariffs
than these. A schedule of the rates
charged by a railroad for the trans
portation of passengers or freight be
tween various points is called a tariff
and some of them, from the great num
ber of articles, and the numerous sta
tions reached, are complicated and
bulky affairs. If you wish to know
where is the most reasonable tariff of
passenger rates, considering accom
modations and conveniences obtainable,
apply to any ticket agent of the Burl
ington Route, or write to W. J. C.
Kenyon, Gen. Pass. Agent, St. Paul,
Depot Agent Johnson: It beats all
the number of newcomers. Almost
every day from two to four families
arrive. They are nil locating on land
tributary to Princeton. We never
have been so rushed with work at the
depot. Three of us are kept busy
every night until after 11 o'clock.
With the country settling up so rapidly
Princeton is bound to go ahead.

The Burlington System Carries the Great
est Nunber of Visitors.
There were three important factors
to the expositionthe fair itself, the
people and the means of transportation.
Of the 34,300,000 through and suburban
passengers the Burlington carried
5,060,000. The number of passengers
carried by the six lines leading to the
Northwest as taken from the Chicago
Inter-Ocean, of Nov. 2nd, is as follows:
Burlington 5,060,000
Northwestern 4,500,000
Rock Island 1,200,000
St. Paul 628,750
Wisconsin Central 53,000
Chicago Great Western. 50,000

Don't Neglect Your Eyes.
The Hirschberg Optical Co., of 629
Olive street, St. Louis, Mo., and 30 E,
14th street, New York, have completed
arrangements to have Prof. Hirsch
berg stay with their agent, C. A. Jack,
Nov. 24th and 25th, and examine eyes
of all who are in need of glasses. This
will be a rare opportunity for all
are suffering from defective vision to
have their eyes scientifically examined
and corrected.
The Professor comes here wholly in
the interests of the H. Hirschberg
Optical Co., and will stop with C. A.
Jack, Nov. 24tb and 25th where may be
found a full line of H. Hirschberg's

Jock Pierson and Will Hanney, of
Princeton, were arrested at the Jack
son hotel last night, charged with kid
napping a six-year-old daughter of
Eugene Herrick, of Burns. They were
soon released, however, as it was shown
that they merely carried the girl part
of the way toward her home from
school. Her sisters were frightened
and, as the little girl did not arrive on
time, it was thought she had been
stolen.Anoka Herald.
Jock Pierson is a resident of Bald
win. He and his wife, and Will Han
ney and Mrs. Pierson's sister, Miss
Keniston, were on their way to Cham
plin, to attend a dance given at the
residence of a relative of the Kenis
ton's. They overtook a little girl on
her way home from school and asked
her to ride. She accepted their invi
tation, and while they were all laugh
ing and chatting together the girl was
carried past the lane which led to her
home. When she told them that they
had carried her past the place where
she wanted to get out they immediately
turned around and took her back to the
lane leading to her home. In the
meantime some larger children who
were comipg up behind and had seen
the little girl get into the buggy
rushed home and told their parents
that some strangers had carried off the
child. The father started immediately
for Anoka and had the quartet ar
rested for abducting his daughter.
But they were only detained a short
time. Herrick demanded pay for his
trouble and the chumps gave him
$2.50, for the privilege of performing a
neighborly act of kindness to his child
we presume. It will be a cold day be
fore Pierson or Hanney give another
Anoka kid a "lift."
The Art of Graceful Walking.
It would seem sometimes that the art
of graceful walking might be numbered
among the lost sciences, so few women
master the accomplishment or even ac
quire any approach to perfection in this
exercise, which is the foundation of all
others. Every one succeeds in propelling
themselves along by means of their feet,
but that is not true walking. An Eng
lish authority says, "The body should be
held erect, the shoulders down, chest
extended and the leg moved from the
hip, the whole figure above being im
movable."Philadelphia Times.
Overfastidious Taste.
Men overfastidious in their choice of
tea have been victims of their too vivid
imaginations. One man objected to a
brand of tea purchased by his wife, pro
nouncing it "weeds," and accordingly
selected a choice kind^ His next cup of
tea was pronounced perfect. The color
was good, and "That's a cup of tea for
you" was said with emphasis as he drank
the second cup made from the "weeds"
his wife had bought.Good Housekeep
Times Have Changed.
Thieves who entered the house of the
pastor of St. James Methodist Episcopal
church in Harlem stole $800 worth of
silver. The surprise is not that they stole
it, but that the minister had it. Times
have changed since the apostolic itiner
lat said, "Silver and gold have I none."
