TKJ* THE PRINCETON UNION By R. C. DUNN. PUBLISHED EVERY.THURSDAY. TERMS, $1.00 Per Year in Advance. $1.25 If Not Paid in Advance. OFFICE: FIRST ST., EAST OF COURT HOUSE. 0 I. STAPLES, Business Manager. A. A. CASWELL, editor. EX-PRESIDENT HARRISON is very ill and the feeling prevails that the noted statesman cannot recover. MINNESOTA has expressed a desire ,._._._, tor direct primaries ajad- will not be satisfied until-they are given her. IF Mrs. Nation is really crazy the disease from which sne is suffering must be contagious. Cambridge has a chance to try a quarantine.'*! THERE is a possibility of injury to the bannana crop of this section through Tuesday's storm, but it was great stuff for the water melons. POLYGAMY has again reared its head. The Utah legislature has boldly passed a bill allowing plural marriages and it?s now up to the governor. ST. PAUL Dispatch: Sybil Sander^ son puts marriage in the same class with poisona little is good as a stim ulant, but an overdose is deadly. And in either case, Sybil demands the' gold seal. THIRTY new chaplains are to be ap pointed for the navy and there are al ready 700 applications for the posi tions. The army of the Prince of Peace seems to have suffei'ed from martial proselyting. AN exchange estimates that before the thirty legislatures now in session adjourn 30,000 laws will have been enacted and then remarks that if we are a lawless people it is not on acmonth count of a lack of "laws." BECAUSE a~ squad of artillerymen stopped a riot in San Juan without orders they are to be court-martialed. Why not mix Gunner Morgan with the lot and save expenses? The cases seem to be of equal justice. HE Memphis Commercial-Appeal ex plains Mrs. Nation's acts by advancing the theory that every time Carrie sees her face in a saloon mirror she feels like smashing somethingand gener ally does. It isn't half bad either. TH IS week the press reports state that the Boers are turning to the Brit ish standard. So far the results ap pear to show that the Boers have sel dom turned away from it, much to the sorrow of the English government. HE present legislature can perform an act of kindness for the people at large if it will enact a "noxious weed" law which will be operative from July to December of "every even numbered year." Now gentlemen, smoke up. FRANK DAY has become so prosper ous running a first class weekly that he thinks he can afford to blow in a few dollars in trying to give Fairmont a daily. If Frank keeps it up to theshade standard of his .weekly the daily will be a bird. As soon as the grip of winter was loosened in the south there came re ports of the desolation wrought by the summer terror, the .cyclone. Texas was the scene, of a terrible visitation last Saturday in which several lives were lost. the oil inspector bill which if passed cff the law. But the amendment has not passed yet, nor has the bill itself' if it ever does. who thought Minnesota would flow with milk and honey if the Republi cans were successful at the fall elec tion, are now of the opinion that the stuff is only canned goods and can openers are scarce. AN amendment has been attached to board, which revoked his license be cause the doctor believed in adveytis- will exempt Schiffman from the effect ingj the St. Paul Dispatch pourssome hot shot, iniio ranks. Itsays: ST. PAUL papers are after the jour nal clerk of the house, and-while the charges made may be'true^ the manner in which they are made would indicate that the principal criticism is that the man who handles this part oi theJegis lative business is a Minneapolis news paper man. YESTERDAY the commission to re vise the tax laws of the State was an nounced. It is composed of H. W. Childs, of St. Paul, W. J. Hahn, of Minneapolis, and G. S. Ives, of St* Peter. The first two have served the State as attorney generals and the latter as lieutenant governor. The ^commission is one of ability and the interests ofthe State will be well cared Jor: and from all appearances it is doubtful created the State board of medical examiners perhaps it would be more accurate to say that the legislature SOME of the disappointed candidates, permitted the medical fraternity to ANOTHER bank official has been "unfortunate" in his dealings on the market and the closing of the~,bank with which he was connected brands him a thief. Ha been successful in his operationsd h-he would have been called a financier. Ther only a snor cases. step between the twois inmost" A HE recent decision of the courts in the Anoka county shrievalty contest emphasizes one point of the law which is very frequently overlooked. The court held that it was very important that illiterates and disabled voters should take the disability ^oath before another could be allowed to mark elec tion ballots for them. HE Baltimore Sun wants the date for the inauguration of the president of the United -States changed to a when there is less liability of storms. It says the persons whose lives have been sacrificed by these March inaugurations would make a mighty and melancholy procession of shades if they could be marshalled for a review. MONTANA had a surprise up its sleeve when the election of ,a United States senator was finally accomp lished. After balloting for weeks the legislature turned the clock back and chose Hon. Paris Gibson, an ex-Minne sotan. The Minnesota colony in Mon tana will soon acquire a reputation for getting there equal to that enjoyed by the Hoosier politicians in this State. THOSE soldiers in China must have. United States by publishing a seclitious served an apprenticeship under the newspaper, will arrive home this week chiefs of Tammany. Whenit comes to and promises to make it hot for thestates looting their work is very similar, though perhaps not quite so smooth. LORD "BOBS" "surprised Emperor William and the German people by re turning the insignia of the Black Eagle which was recently presented to him. He gives as a reason for his actection tion the unfavorable comment of the German press.J The order of the BlacK Eagle is the most celebrated and highly coveted order of European courts. HE Duluth Herald gets pretty near the truth when it says: "Men, like Lincoln are* not very gracefuj they have little of the drawing room polish of manner they would, not appear to advantage in a ball room but as rep resentatives of a great nation in themillions departments of the army or navy, or in the still more important department of diplomacy, they would hold their own with such men as Sampson." A NEW word has been added to the Yankee vocabulary by Kansas people. It is "buffaloed." It has a delicate of meaning. A man who isup scared is merely awakened into the activities of defense a man who is bluffed is one who is so badly scared that he believes defense impossible, but a man who is buffaloed'not only believes defense is impossible, but can't work up enough locomotion to run. IN discussing the appeal of Dr. Flint from the decision oi the State medical the piil prescribers' "A former legislature create for themselves a State board, With that action we have no quarrel, for society has the right to guard itself against incompetent men who would take the health and lives of ^its mem bers in their hands. We do quarrel with the permission given the medical fraternity virtually to write into the penal laws of this State their code of medical ethics .and attach their in fringement the punishment or depriva tion of a most valuable property right, the license to practice."

In view of the extent of our trade and the rapidity of its growth and -exten sion, what becomes of the theory of those who oppose protection and hold that the "tariff wall'' we have erected must necessarily operate to keep us out of the markets of the world? The Dingley tariff bill is the highest pro-, we have ever had and yet our commerce is growing by leaps and bounds. As the New York Tribune suggests there must be a hole in the wail.'-Winona Republican. 8* $ 4 MAY E DARE'S PLUM. It is said that the railway and ware house commission cannot agree upon the selection of a chief clerk, one sup porting Clausen, and two W. E. Verity, for several years political editor of the Minneapolis Tribune. It is now an nounced that the commission is con sidering the idea of taking up a new man, and one of whom the three mem bers can agree. Hon. A.N. Dare, of Elk River has been suggested, and if he is chosen the commission will have made a popular selection, and at the same time have secured the services of a most capable man, thoroughly reli able and honest.St. Cloud Journal Press. IS IT WORTH TH E PRICE? The end of the Boer war seems,to be close at hand as the supplies of the. burghers are becoming exhausted' and reports come that Gen. Bgtha Is ar ranging terms with the Sirdar for sur render. The war has lasted over a year and a half and from twenty to thirty thousand men have died on both sides as the result, while hundreds of of money have been spent. Have the results attained warranted this great sacrifice?Albert Lea Tri bune, i A NATIONAL REPROACH. The convict lease system was the basis of- the species of slavery recently in vogue in South Carolina and broken by the vigorous "action of the An derson county grand jury under in structions from Judge Bennett. The leasing of convicts to contractors and farmers is a relic of barbarism fortunately existing in but few of the states of the Union, but wherever it does exist~it should be abolished. The slave stockades of South Carolina re present but. one of the abuses made possible by such a system and it will be a reproach to Twentieth century civilization if it is permitted to con tinue much longer in any state. Minneapolis Times. RESULTS OP PO PARTISANSHIP. Two years ago, when the Populist element got in control of the railroad and warehouse commission, there com menced a general and wholesale slaughter of Republican office-holders, particularly-in the grain inspection bu reau. As many as sixty were decapi tated at one time Their places were filled, in a great part, with incompe tent,, inexperienced men. The depart ment was utilized simply as a means to pay political debts and to form that monstrous political machine. I is needless to imagine the results of this they were too painful a reality which' yet lingers in memory. The interests which should have been served were placed as a sacrifice upon the altar of partisanship.Menahqa Messenger. ,r* TAX REFORM NEEDED.
