Editor.
MONTANA is still struggling to elect
a senator. The legislators have evi
dently formed a trust and are waiting
for an Improved market
HE Minneapolis Times is planning
to build a new home, which will un
doubtedly be the finest newspaper
building in Minneapolis

but denies the soft impeachment that
he is a candidate for the nomination
for president in 1904 or anything else.

ble and correctional institutions of the

HE UNION would like to see Mille
Lacs, Sherburne, Anoka and Isanti in
the same congressional district. In
any event these counties are bound to
be the tail end of either the St. Cloud
or the Duluth district.
HE Duluth News-Tribune says that
"some people think that those wicked
Kansas joint-keepers will not get off
with the gentle attentions of Carrie,
and that Helen Damm Nation will be
after them next."
GERMANY knows not how it feels to
suffer from the discrimination of other
nations. Russia has laid an embargo
on German pork, using almost the
identical language Germany used when
it refused admittance to American
pork.
HE Philadelphia Inquiiei says that
when Cleveland remarked that this
country would "never be the same
again,'' many of his hearers remem
bering what it was during his admin
istration, uttered a prayer of thank
fulness.
HE South is struggling with, the
snow piles which Minnesota has been
troubled with in former years. Kan
sas, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa re
port snowbound trains and a general
frostiness which is an unpleasant ex
perience.
ONE of the Duluth string fiends tells
of the discovery of a supply of natural
gas in that vicinity, but a contempora
ry assures us that it is probably
"marsh gas." Let's see Henry
Truelson and 'Zeke Kendall are still
residents of the Zenith city, are they

THERE IS a man over in Wisconsin
who will have three months for re
flection and it is safe to say that he
will think more of his wife and family
during that time than he did when he
deserted them two years ago. There
are few Minnesota men who might be
benefitted by similar treatment
A TELEGRAM from Cincinnati says
that the legal question which is in
volved in the attempt to prevent the
Jeffrys-Ruhlin fight is whether such
affairs are fights or boxing contests.
If this one promises to be either Gov.
Nash might as well let it go on. It's
the hippodrome that hurts the "per
fesfa."
THERE promises to be a fat lobby in
Washington when the Cuban matter
comes up for consideration. It is the
prevailing opinion that a repudiation
clause should be inserted in the Cuban
constitution to free the inhabitants
of the island from the weight of debts
placed upon them by the Spanish and
the French and Spanish bondholders
will fight.
BRIDGEPORT, in the land of wooden
nutmegs, is credited with originating
another Yankee scheme for accumulat
ing wealth. The city is deeply in debt
and some genius has proposed that the
city insure the lives of several of its
citizens, the premiums being paid from
public funds and the benefits accruing
at the death of the aforesaid individ
uals going intc the public treasury.
There are probably hundreds of men
in the town who have at one time or
another declared that they were will
ing to die for their country, so it will
,j)ot be difficult to secure a few who are
willing to die for their Wty.
AN anti-spitting ordinance wqjildn5t
be a bad thing for this village. The
idea has proved to be all right in other
towns and there is every probability
that it will be given a trial in. Prince
ton.
AT least half a dozen members of tbe
present State senate aspire to seats in
congress, hence the question of redis
ricting the State into nine congres
sional districts is receiving the most
careful consideration of our -law-mak-
ers in Sit. Paul.
Gov. CLOUG-H's enemies never ac
cused him _of attempting to shirk re
sponsibility for any of his official acts.
He never played the baby act. If he
made a mistake he manfully sbould
ered the responsibility/ Gov. Clough
was not a dodger.
SENATOR TELLER has taken up the
cudgels in behalf of Editor Rice the
Minnesota man who was deported on
account of his inflammatory utterances
in bis Manila paper. The senator is
looking for an issue and is willing to
espouse any old cause to get one.
A RETURNED British surgeon says
that the Boers used vinegar to coun
teract the effect of lyddite, each sol
dier being supplied with a nottle of the
acid. If the aforesaid surgeon values
the friendship of his friends he will
supply them with a grain or two of
DOWN in Louisiana the whites turned
out and committed an outrage on a
respectable colored family fully as
brutal as any of which their colored
neighbors have been accused. Now
there is a good opportunity for the
negroes to turn the tables and officiate
at a lynching. The whites owe it to
the rest of the nation to see that the
criminals get full punishment for
awful deed.
that time aggregating 114 years was
wasted by business men in affixing
revenue stamps to their checks. The
Press urges the repeal of the law on
this groundwasted time. Now if
the editor of the metropolitan sheet
will furnish the bank account he can
find an unlimited supply of country
journalists who will furnish time and
be happy to do it.
Do you remember wpat a storm of
protest came when some of those
"prominent citizens" of Minneapolis
heard that there was a likelihood of
John Goodnow's appointment'as Chi
nese consul? Did you notice how warm
these same gentlemen were in their
welcome when this same man returned
to their city last week? The millenium
must be due, so far as Hennepin county
politics are concerned.
THE RE is a howl going up fiom many news
papers in the State over the foim prescribed
by Auditor Dunn for the tax: list this year
There is no reason in putting so much work on
the printer, d,t the measly compensation
Anoka Union
The tax-payers who foot the bills for
the publication of delinquent tax lists
are entitled to consideration as well as
the printers. We will admit that the
compensation for publishing a delin
quent tax list as it ought to be pub
lished is "measly," but surely that is
not the fault of Auditor Dunn.
HE joint commission appointed to
survey the boundary line between the
United States and British America in
Alaska has finished its labors and filed
its report. The report of the commis
sion is unanimous and by its decision
this government is given about nine
tenths of the territory in dispute..
This will dampen much of the anti
British powder stored by the Anglo
maniacs for use against the adminis
tration.
HE precedent established by the
State senate in refusing to confirm one
of Gov. Lind's appointees, solely be
cause that appointee was distasteful to
the senator from the district in. which
he resides, is a bad one. There was
no excuse for the refusal of the senate
to confirm the appointment of John E.
King as a member of the State board
of equalization. There could be no
question as to Mr, King's fitness, for
he was one of the most competent
members of the board.
WISCONSIN lawmakers are striving
to put an end to time checks and all
other methods of* paying wages which
are liable to result in a loss by dis
counts to the wage earner. If the pro
posed law meets ]the approval of the
governor only cash or negotiable
checks can be usecTto pay for labor in
that State. Such a law is a severe
blow to many small banks in lumber
ing communities, which have eked out
a comfortable living and a surplus by
shaving the checks of the lumberjacks.

HENNEPIN'S BRISTLES.
The proposition to make Hennepin
county a congressional district under
the new apportionment does not find
favor with the Minneapolis Journal as
it will contain a largeHpopulation than
any of the other proposed districts, and
40,000 more than some of them. How
to remove this" objection the Journal
does not suggest. Possibly Minneapo
lis would not be satisfied with anything
short of having the city represented by
two congressmen. If the extra 40,000
were cut off and attached to another
district this object would probably be
attained, for the Minneapolis voters
would be a unit for a Minneapolis man
all the time. That's a way they have,
though they do notalways agree on the
man.Owatonna Jownal.

TOWNE'S POLITICS.
As Mr. Charles A. Towne is aRepub
and never has been anything else, it is
vastly entertaining to. observe the av
erage Republican organ foam at the
mouth when his name is mentioned
Chicago Chronicle
The Chionicle calls him a Republi
can. Where was the Chwnicle last
summer, time of the Kansas City con
vention, when Charley told us that he
had been a Democrat in disguise all
the time since '96? His brand of Dem
ocracy is just as good as any now in
the marke and the Chronicle will have
admit itton the evidence of the daily
DEMOCRATIC POLICY.
Watch the Democratic press you
will see that the course of the adminis
tration is fiercely condemned, no mat
ter what it may be. Those prgans
which have roasted McKinley every
day for two years on account of his
autocratic rule in the Philippines are
just as keenly hostile to the proposi
tion to establish civil government
there.
It is the same in Cuba. The presi
dent's government of the island by the
exertion of executive authority has
been condemned by a thousand Demo
cratic sheets, and yet his proposal that
congress shall assume control of the
Cuban problem is scornfully rejected
by these same organs. The atticude
of this party of mere carping negation
is expressed the well known dog
gerel rhyme:
You can and you can't,
You will and you won't
You'll be damned if you do,
You'll be damned if you don't.

THERE'S A PRECEDENT.
Gen. McArthur, in making Guam a
place to which to deport obnoxious
Filipinos, is not without precedent.
During the brief period in which Gen.
Butler reigned in New Orleans he de
ported several obstreperous citizens to
Ship Island, and the possibility of exile
to that inhospitable sand pile acted as
a healthful deterent on the turbulent.

than Senator Davis was at Towne's
