Day off for Our Sake.
Let Fletcher Alone to Tell Us
About the Country's Awful
Condition Before 92.
Sidney Owen found time Tuesday
leave Minneapolis and his fight
against jour Uncle Loren's hosts to
come to Princeton and tell us that all
was not right with the country prior to
1892 He was greeted by a large audi
ence at Jesmer's opera house and a
genuine Populist meeting, without any
Democratic side issues, was the result.
Mr. Owtn is well known to most of the
people of the northwest through his
paper, the Farm, Stock and Home, to
be an ultra freetrader and the first 40
minutes of his speech was devoted to
tariff and free trade. In commenting
on McKinley's advice to open the mills
and never mind the mints, he insinu
ated that the Republicans could open
them if they would as they held the
keys, the inference being that they
had been closed for political purposes.
He did not want to see Columbia raise
her skirts and wade across the Atlan
tic ocean to beg for bimetallism, but he
did desire to see her stand proudly
within the borders of her own country
and tell the rest of the world to dance
to her music or starve. The price of
srlvei, he said, was fixed by the small
surplus that the owners were obliged
to sell and not by its value as money.
According to the speaker's ideas there
could be no 53-cent silver dollars but
every dollar would be worth 100 cents.
The dollar in use to-day would buy
only a dollar's worth of interest, debt,
or taxes but would buy two dollars'
worth of other commodities as com
pared with prices "before silver was
demonetized." During the evening he
made quotations from speeches of
Blame, Ingalls, Thurston, Carlisle ai.d
otheis, and used them to further his
arguments His speech was not an
oratorical effort but was more of a
personal talk to the audience and
t4rft*ugbout the evening irony and ridi
cule played its part. After leaving the
tariff he proceeded to lay the silver
cause before the people in a more skill
ful manner than any of the Democratic
speakers before have done and while
no conversions were apparent it is evi
dent that he has braced up the waver
ing ones Many in the audience greet
ed every slap at the Republican party
with applause and throughout the ad
dress these outbursts were frequent.
The Populists are well pleased with
A SUDDEN END.
Hunters Gave the Marble Heart to Indians
and Suffered for It.
Two Stillwater hunters, James Han
sen and Will Alexander had a short
hunt at Mille Lacs lake last week.
They went Saturday night, intending
to stay there a couple of weeks, and
took along a tent and camp" equipage shouting kept up by the paid agents of

camped about eighteen miles from gus Falls Journal.
Aitkin, pitching their tent in a pic
turesque spot on the shores of the lake,
which fairly teemed with ducks. That
evening they had company. A num

was performed at the beautiful home

Wednesday morning at 10:30, Rev.
Geo. S. Parker officiating. Those at

were: Mr. and Mrs. S. S. Petterson, of

A BATTLE FOR PRINCIPLES
When we consider that Mr. Lind, by
if elected, bfea compelled not only to
test every suppositious vagary but also
experiment with every visionary the
ory, we can realize that his success
would be a menace to our progress and
prosperity. For these reasons we con
sider it a duty to support D. Clough,
as the welfare and prosperity of the
business interests of the 'State espe
cially demand it at this time, and for
the reason that his election will mean
no experimenting, no disturbance of
conditions, no change in policy, no
pandering to demagogues or no array
ing of the masses against classeb
'Clough's election in our opinion, gives
not only the best assurance of a con
servative administration, bub is not a
threat to the substantial interests of
the State. The gubernatorial and
State as well as congressional and na
tional contest i & a battle for principles.
A FEW FACTS
The present total production of sil
ver is over $200,000,000 a year, or four
times greater than in 1870, and on ac
count of improved mining machinery
can be produced much cheaper than it
could then. Many silver mines make
good profits at the present prices, and
and increased demand means an in
creased supply rather than a higher
price for silver. In 1878 silver was
about $1 14 an ounce, and has steadily
declined to 68 cents, while the govern
ment has bought enough silver to make
600 million dollars, and has coined 420
million standard dollars. The only
way to raise the price is for a few men
like Rockefeller to get hold of the big
mines and limit the output. And
what good would that do us common
THE REAL CRIME.
Senator Foraker told the truth the
other day when he said it was the real
crimethe repeal of the Republican
..protective tariff lawthat had brought
on the present depression. The
"crime of '73" had nothing to do with
it. The claim that a mythical "crime"
suddenly brought on hard times twenty
years after it was committed is some
thing that full grown men would laugh
at were it not for the tremendous
the silver mining millionaires.Fer-

TIME TO HALT.
The object of free trade is to remove
every obstacle from the path of those
who choose to buy goods abroad. Two
results from such policy are plain to
the most superficial observer. First
Employment for American labor will
be lessened, for the products of foreign
labor will take the place of American
products, and American laborers will
be deprived of just so many hours'
work as these imported goods repre
sent. SecondWe must send out of
this country either gold or goods to
pay for the things we buy. We can't' being at Snow's pavillion.

The lumber jacks are not as numer
ous about the towns and villages in the
pine forests of tho northwest as they
used to be at this season of the year.
The rebidents of these towns notice the
difference, and so do the lodging house
keeperb, the merchants saloon keep
ers, sad to say, and other business men.
It is no wonder that the Coime), of
Sandstone, Minn is led to make this
remark "The old settler wonders at
the non-appearance of his old winter
sojourner, the lumber jack. TJ&ually
at this time of the year most north
eastern Minnesota towns present a gala
appearance with their gaudily attired
lumbermen However, the lumbermen
will be a most decidedly minus quan
tity this year. The Canadian lumber
has overstocked the Minnesota market
and the lumber jack, in consequence,
is thrown out of employment The
lumber tariff did that much for us. It
goes hard boys, when thefee things
strike right at home Instead of the
"lumber tariff" our contemporary un
doubtedly meant the lack of a lumber
tariff, for which we have to thank the
Wilson tariff bill.Lumbetman.
