CERTAINLY this is a Republican
year, but it takes Republican votes to
make it so, and it is time to begin get
ting the" boys out.
WI LL Mr. Eustis' personal organ,
the Minneapolis Times, be kind enough
to inform the State auditor how he can
compel the Great Northern R. R. Co.
to pay taxes on lands that company re
fuses to own?

N EW YORK is determined that the
Corbett-McCoy fight shall not be pulled
off in that State. And yet New York
has never taken steps to head off a
Tammany-Hill fight,which is certainly
several degrees worse.
HE Democrats of the Second con
gressional district have got together
and nominated W. S. Hammond for
congress. It is not stated what the
Democrats of the Second congressional
district have against W. S Hammond.
HE Anoka Union declines to sup
port W. B. Douglas for attorney gen

elected. Whom would the Union like
to see placed in that position0
SPAIN IS evidently determined that
the peace negotiations shall never be
brought to a conclusion as long as
there is any possibility of delay. Sa
gasta pow doubts whether the treaty
of peace can be legally agreed upon
except with the sanction of the cortes.
If Spain hasn't got enough it would be
just as well to keep Dewey in active
service and let him have a 13-inch in
terview with the cortes.
JEFFERSON DAVIS, escaping through
the Federal lines in the cast-off rai
ment of a woman, was about the same
kind of a dignified spectacle as that of
Gen Augusti sneaking out of Manila
and scurrying away from the scene of
danger on a German man-of-war
Neither will look well in history, but
if a comparison is to be instituted we
can not see where the Spanish general
can have any the best of it
THERE IS no more deserving candi
date for office in the State than John
Ryder, who has been nominated for
the senate to succeed Rmgdal in the
Populist stronghold of Polk county.
Ryder is one of the ablest and best
newspaper men in the State, and has
had valuable experience in matters of
legislation that would make him an
ideal senator froity his district. He
was originally a Democrat, but came
over to the Republicans with the land
slide of 1896, and brought his baggage
with himto stay. If the people of
his district know what is good for them
they will elect him.
REPUBLICANS will be slow to believe
that it is with any other than its own
authority that the Minneapolis Times
assumes to be the personal mouthpiece
of the Republican candidate for gov
ernor. The Times has done everything
in its power to weaken and overthrow
the Republican party, and Mr. Eustis
knows it. We do not believe the
stories that are told of his connection
with the Times and its editor, or that
he is willing to throw the rest of
the ticket over for the support that the
Times is giving him. The Times,
knowing that it is a Republican year,
and having in mind the prestige which
itcould claim as the supporter of the
winning candidate for governor, has
probably buttoned itself onto Mr. Eus
tis' coat without asking his consent,
and when it is all over will lay claim
to the credit of the victory.
WHITLAW REID, the frizzled, frozen
hoodoo of the presidential ticket of
1892, is crawling around the throne at
Washington and making a regular
would-be-postmaster campaigri for ap
pointment as minister to Eiggland to
succeed John Hay. Having done
everything in his power to defeTat Mc
Klnley for the nomination a$d very
little to assist him in the'lection,
Reid shows himself to be possessed of a
reasonably healthy gall just at this
HE disclosures of favoritism-, if not
actual fraud, in the Wisconsin State
administration should be a'lesson to
officials in 6ther states. Ther "doodle
book" showed that the State treasurer
wasln the habjt of advancing large
sums to State officials on their pros
pective salaries, and a 'sensation was
the result. No State official has a
right to draw a cent of salary until he
has earned it, and no properly con
ducted office woujd permit the pay
ment of any money under such circum
stances. To be sure the State suffered
no financial loss, but there was always
the possibility that it might have done
so, and therein lies the culpability of
the officials. Minnesota has been hap
pily exempt from any such scandals.
Long may she r.emain so.

Pease choose between Mr. Douglas and
LT THEM COME HOME.
Spam has swallowed her pride and
surrendered to ''the superior, forces
of America." While peace has not
been formally declared the evacua
tion of the Spanish ppssessions renders
it unnecessary for us to keep so large
an army. The Minnesota regiments
which have been stationed at Chica
mauga have seen no service because
the political pinhead, who is supposed
to fill a chair in President McKinley's
cabinet, willed it otherwise and now
that all chances for getting into the
trouble are passed nine-tenths of the
men are anxious to come home.
When our gallant boys enlisted
many of them left families, business,
and profitable situations to go to theconsecutive
front. Their salaries in the army
range from $15.60 to $30 per month ac
cording to the rank attained. Is it
fair to keep these men on this pittance
when their families and business in
terests demand their return? The
Yankees are fighters when the occa
sion demands it, but when peace
spreads her wings their disposition
changes and they long for home life.
Let the boys come home.

We are glacl to be~atl to announce that A
N Dare will consent to permit Ms name to be
placed on the legislative ticket for thisclistiict
thus relieving the strained situation that has
prevailed since the legislative convention. In
thus yielding to the urgent wishes of his multi
tude of friends in Anoka county, Mr Dare has
been most generous and magnanimous It has
never been his wish to be a candidate for the
house this year, but he has finally consented to
accept the nomination as the only means of
harmonizing the Republican party the dis
trict and re-establishing that good feeling
which is so essential to its success We pre
dict for Mr Dare an especially brilliant careei
as a member of the house for this term His
experience during his previous terms and the
friends he has made will smooth his way in
many respects All who knew him then will
be glad to welcome him back and there will be
nomorewoi thy member of the legislature of
1899 than A N Daie of Elk RiverAnoka
The UNION most heartily commends
Mr Dare for his decision. He was not
a candidate for a seat in the house
this year but desired to be the senator
from this new district, and was clearly
entitled to it. Sharp practice by some
ungrateful wretches defeated him and
the feeling was so strong that it
threatened disaster to the party
at the polls. By consenting to repre
sent Sherburne county and the dis
trict in the lower house this winter he
has done much to bring back the feel
ing of goodfellowship which has
hitherto prevailed and insured the suc
cess of the Republican ticket at the
polls. The UNION takes off its hat to
a man who can lay aside all personal
feeling when it comes to a question of
party success, and predicts that Hon.
A. N. Dare will receive the largest
majority of any legislative candidate
on the ticket.

For over three years the Minneap
olis papers have been telling all kinds of
lies about Gov. Clough, and now, to
cap it all, they have started a story to
effect that he is going to bolt the party
because Eustis got the nomination for
Governor. Of course every body knows
there is no truth in the story. What
can be the object of such reckless ly
ing? It certainly does Clough no

AN OLD SETTLER GONE.
Alexander Deshaw Joins the Silent Ma
Alexander Deshaw, an old and re
spected resident of GreenWush, died at Princeton village
his home at ten o'clock in the evening SSSnbSSh*"
of Monday, the 21st inst., of internal
cancer, after an illness of eleven
months. Mr. Deshaw had "been a resi
dent of Greenbush *for twenty-seven
years. He passed the entire1
time on a
farm, which he opened and improved
with comfortable buildings and kept
himself and family in good circumstan
ces. He was public spirited and al
ways took great interest in the welfare
of the community and enjoyed the con
fidence of his neighbors, being elected
town supervisor and assessor for nine
terms and a member of the
school, board for sixteen years. He
was a member of the Catholic church
and one of the trustees of the same for
a number of years, always performing
his duties in an upright and faithful
manner. He was the father of a large
family of children, all of whom are
honorable members of society.
The funeral took place at ten o'clock
to-day, from the family residence.
Services were held at the Catholic
church in Greenbush.
Alexander Deshaw was born in Mas
sena, New York, on May 20th, 1838
and resided there until he came tftMin
nesota and settled in Greenbush in
1871. March 2, 1859, he married Eliza

At two o'clock last Saturday morn
ing, during a thunder storm, lightning
struck the house of Mrs. Mary Rottier,
about four miles south-west of Prince
ton. The inmates were all asleep but
the shock awoke Mrs. Rottier, who
was somewhat bewildered on finding
that the house was on fire. She called
the hired man, Charles Ganlie, who
was up stairs, but the flames spread so
rapidly that nothing of consequence
could be saved. The fire spread to the
barn, granary and blacksmith shop,
which were consumed with all their
contents excepting the stock and a set
of harness. Mr. Ganlie had hard work
to get the stock out of the burning
barn, but the last one was driven out
just as the burning hay from the loft
above commenced falling around him.
There was an insurance of about five
hundred dollars on the property de
