How the "Journal" Wants to Se-
cure an Anti-Cloueh Dele-'
gation from Its City.
Jeffersonian Democrats Met Last
Monday Evening to "Bury
i& Caesar not to Praise Him."
special Correspondence to the UNI ON
MINNEAPOLIS, April 14, 1896.The
Journal outlines editorially a plan
which it thinks will serye to do up
Governor Clough in Hennepin county.
The plan is this: For all the guber
natoiial candidates except Clough to
unite upon one set of delegates in-4he
counjty, and for voters to vote at the
primaries on their choice for governor,
thejl candidate receiving highest
choice, aside from Clough, to receive
the support of the solid Hennepin dele
gation at the State convention. For
example, if the combined opposition
got three-fifths, the anti-Clough can
didate in the lead should have the
|ji $- $-
If Hennepin is entitled to 115 votes
in the convention, two-fifths for Clough
would be 46 and three-fifths for the
combined opposition woald be 69. If
the 69 votes, on the basis of the pri
mary ballot, should stand in the ratio
of 22 for Eustis, 20 for Van Sant, 15 for
Lee^ 5 for Gibbs, 3 for Clapp, 2 for Mc
GilL/ and 2 scatteringEustis would
recejie the support of the delegation,
although getting only 20 per cent, of
the Support of the voters at the pri
maries and less than half what Clough
received. The Journal thinks this is
tha only way Clough can be downed in
Hennepin. The method is advised as
a plan to defeat the "machine." A
niceihuestion which might arise here
is this Could the combination hold
together long enough to deliver the
goodlfe? Would the Van Sant support
ers, for example, consent to giving the
suppoit of the whole delegation to
Eustis, when Van Sant lacked only two
votes of as many as Eustis? There are
many*nice questions here involved.

The Jeffersonian Democrats ban
quetted in honor of their patron saint
last evening although only about half
of them professed to be Jeffersonian on
the money question, and the other half
Groverian. C. Porter Johnson, of

of the occasion. He evidently came to
bury Grover, not to praise him.

Why Boys Leave the Farm.
One of the strokes of Burdette's pen
leaves a mark which is readable from
a long range because of its simple
truthfulness. "Why do the boys leave
the farm?" wails a writer in an agri
cultural journal Well, dear brother
there are several reasons One is be
cause the boy is about 65 years old at
his birth. Then if there is a hoe on
the farm weighing fourteen ounces,
bright as nickel plate and sharp as a
razor, and another hoe weighing some
what less than a breaking plow with
an edge on like a hammer, and a sap
ling with the bark on for a handle, the
hired man takes one and the boy gets
the other, and every man in America
knows which is the other. Did you
ever stand with such a hoe in your
hands away down in a corn row on some
airless, still, hot summer day, twenty
acres of corn blades a tassels wilting
about you standing fourteen inches
higher than your head, shutting out company
every last trace of breathable air, and
hear a locust down in the edge of ifae
timber strike up his long, strident,
monotonous call to make it ten times
hotter? And at this time a cool creek
not a mile away, loitering in the deep
silent pools in shady places in the
woods, or breaking into merry dancing
ripples over the pebbles. And in the
big, deep holes the fish just lying
around -waiting for a boy. Well then
you know why some boys leave the
farm. Still boys can be kept on the
farm and made to stay there all their
Dr. Coonej 's Father Dead.
Dr. H. C. Cooney was called to Still
water Thursday by a telegram an
nouncing the death of his father. The
St. Paul Globe of Friday contains the
following notice: "James Cooney, a
well-known resident of Washington
county, who has lived here since early
in the 50's, died yesterday at Afton of
senile debility, having attained the age
of eighty-one years. Deceased was
born in Ireland in 1815, and spent his
early life in England and on the seas,
being a member of two whaling expedi
tions in Arctic waters. When he came
to the St. Croix valley he located at
Taylors Falls, but a few months later
removed to Afton, where he had since
resided. He was married in England
in 1845 to Miss Mary Dunn, who sur
vives him, together with the following
children: Mrs. Ann Parsons, of Afton
Miss Ellen Cooney, a teacher in the
Minneapolis' schools Thomas Cooney,
of Helena, Mont. Dr. H. C. Cooney, of
Princeton, Minn., and Mrs. Ed. St,

The board of education met Monday
evening and considered the applica
tions which have been accumulating
on the clerk's desk since the first of
the year. As a result of their deliber
ations J. H. Arnold, A. B., of Redfield,
S. D., was elected to succeed Pg?of.
Simpson. Prof. Arnold is a graduate
of Iowa State College and has been
at Redfield for the past five years as
dean of the faculty of Redfield college.
Prof. Simpson was not a candidate for
re-election, feeling that he could not
remain at the salary the board had de
cided to pay The board expressed^ re
gret at his decision for he has given
excellent satisfaction and it was slow
to part with him. X\

Monday evening, under the auspices of

Her address, of course, was upon
Pythian matters and was very inter

in connection which was well received,

The water in the river reached a
very high stage Monday, the road east
of the red bridge being flooded to the
depth of two feet in some places. The
raise was continuous from Saturday
night till Monday night when a slight
fall was noticeable. At one time it
was feared that the West Branch
bridge would go, but the ice broke up
Sunday and went out without damage.
The road across the flats south of town
was rendered almost impassable during
a part of the day Monday.

Arbor day in Minnesota. Since the
inauguration of this day millions of
fruit and shade trees have been planted,
the one adding to the prosperity of the
community, the other to the beauty of
the home and both to the comfort of
humanity both in winter and summer.
There will be no falling off either in
the interest or the number who will
participate in these exercises this year.
But there is no need to confine the
planting to that day alone. The sea
son is favorable and everyone who can
sliould plant as many as possible.
Trees grow and in a few years so im
prove property that their* value can
readily be estimated in money. Let's
all observe Arbor day.
