of Bryan and would much rather enjoy
a rest from his rantings.
MINNESOT A day at the Buffalo ex-
position is set for June 18. That is the
day the editors of the State will arrive
there and spread carmine pigments
over the face of the city.
ONE thing is conspicuous in all the
accounts of the wild time on Wall
Street last week: No newspapermen
were made or broke. Some of their
delinquent subscribers were, though.

I is not unlikely that this year will
see the framing and acceptance of a
reciprocity treaty between the United
States and Canada. The joint high
commission will meet and each country
will make concessions.
WITH a majority of the newspapers
of his city and the grand jury after
him, Mayor Ames is very liable to be-
come the Aguinaldo of Minnesota.
And the mayor is becoming somewhat
windedfor himin the chase.
THE lurid tales of some of the penny-
a-liners concerning the repetition of
the Sugar Point affair have come to
naught. The red men have washed off
the war paint and the lumbermen will
get their logsand pay for them.
THE whole trouble with the "re-
form" administration of Minneapolis
seems to be that the ring forgot that
the city was located in Hennepin
county and that the county officials
may regulate morals as well as the city
MEMORIAL day, one of the most
sacred holidays of the year, is fast ap-

IN the stock market, as in almost
everything else, it appears to be the
early bird that walks off with the ban-
quet meats. There were more for-
tunes made by selling stock last week
when 200 was reached than at the 1,000
THE railroad companies have dis-
posed of most of their lands and what
little they have left has been boosted
in price. If you have money to invest
you can find no safer investment than
in real estate in this section and none
which will yield better returns.
THE Willmar Argus has suspended
publication. It was the old story, too
many papers for the territory, and al-
though its editor struggled hard for
several years to gain a foothold, he
was finally forced to relinquish the
effort. May he discover a more ad-
HAWAII'S legislature has petitioned
the president to remove Governor Dole
because he "is obstructing legisla-
tion.'' The governor has set his seal
of disapproval on several of the most
fanatical laws ever passed by a law-
making body, but this kind of obstruc-
tion will not be apt to lose him his job.
PERHAPS one reason why Germany
is talking so often of opposition to the
United States is that it desires to dis-
tract attention from her internal dis-
orders. The agrarians are stirring up
all sorts of trouble for the cabinet, and
the executives hope to win favor with
that party by jumping on Yankeedom.

dition, however, will not influence'the

with packages and fills space.
COL. HARRIS, of Duluth, well-known
throughout the old Sixth congressional
district, died Monday. The colonel
was on,e o-E the supporters of the rebel-
lion in tnfe 60's and served in the Con-
federate army, but when the war was
ended he dropped all factional differ-
ences and worked to promote the in-
terests of the reunited country.
AFTER months of quiet the Dreyfus
case comes into prominence again by
the confession of Esterhazy that he
wrote the famous bordereau, which
was the principal evidence against
Dreyfus, but did it at the instigation
of the chief of the secret service.
There are still a lot of unhung villains
among the vine-clad hills of France.
WISCONSIN health officers have or-
dered all the lumber camps where
smallpox was prevalent last winter to
be burned. This might be a mighty
good idea for Minnesota to adopt.
More cases came to this locality from
the lumber regions than from any
other place, and next year may witness
a repetition if nothing is done to pre-

I N the trial races between the new
and the old challenger for America's
cup Shamrock I administered a crush-
ing defeat to Shamrock II and English
racing stock fell off several points.
The trial races on this side have not
yet occurred, but as the American
builders have never yet failed to build
boats a trifle faster each time, it is safe
to predict that the cup will still re-
main with us.
I seems quite probable that the
section cutting out the army canteen
will be repealed at the next session of
congress. The disposition of some of
the soldier boys to put down rebellious
liquor when away from army influences
is greater than when they were allowed
to drink beer and light wines in their
army home. And when they get the
red liquor down it returns the comple-
ment, and causes trouble for all con-
GERMAN newspapers say that the
commercial supremacy of the United
States should not be allowed to con-
tinue, for the reason that the United
States are the most dangerous rivals
that country has to contend with.
They urge all European nations to
combine against your uncle and com-
pel him to conform with the commer-
cial customs of Europe. W are afraid
the German newspapers have bitten
off too large a chew.
THE president's wife is ill and the
newspapers say that her indisposition
was caused by an operation. One of
her hands was bruised, it is thought,
while shaking hands with the crowd
that thronged about the car from the
time she left Washington until the
coast was reached and the surgeons
found it necessary to lance the hand.
The wild westerners don't use dyna-
mite, but in some ways they can give
Russia's anarchists cards and spades
and then win out.
WHENEVER a man shows signs of be-
ing successful in a certain position his
friends often foolishly proclaim that
he is entitled to "something better"
and try to hustle him into a higher
position. Just now the friends of
Judge Taft, who is making a record on
the Philippine commission, think he
could serve his country better if he
were governor of Ohio. He would
probably be an excellent governor, but
he has displayed such tact and judg-
ment in discharging the duties of his
insular position that the country at
large would be better pleased if he re-
mained there to serve them.

carried by free conveyance. Such a
system is now in operation in Maine,
New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachu-
setts. Connecticut, New Jersey, Penn-
sylvania, Ohio and Iowa. The bill had
been urged and triumphed after much
opposition largely on the plea of econ-
omy. The old-time district schools in
sparsely populated districts of Illinois
are sometimes kept up with only an
average attendance of five. They can-
not be graded and there is a conse-
quent waste of efficiency therefore,
both from the point of saving and
effect, the consolidated system would
appear to be a step ahead. Where it
has been tried it works well. In a
State like Minnesota, whose northern
localities are occupied by widely scat-
tered farms there would be some good
reasons for its adoption. The farmers
would lose the little red schoolhouse,
but what are traditions to co-opera-
tion, economy and increased efficiency.
A COSTLY POLICY.
The scepter of financial control has
passed from the hands of Great Bri-
tain. This was inevitable in any case,
owing to the rise of the United States
in wealth and commercial importance
but it could have been delayed for
some time yet had it not been for the
expenditures of the Boer war. Great
Britain is paying a frightful price for
her trust in Joseph Chamberlain and
his alliance with Cecil Rhodes. It
will be years before her financial diffi-
culties can be removed. Her suprem-
acy can never be restoredBed Wing
ONLY THEMSELVES TO KICK.
It appears to us that the Park Rap-
ids Enterprise covers the ground cor-
rectly when it says: "Just how the
primary law stands depends absolutely
on the people. If it doesn't fulfill its
promise, it will simply be because the
people don't take advantage of the
situation. They will have themselves
to kick and not any machine."Qrook-

Commoner, did not at first startle, then
fascinate the American people. Per-
haps it is because it is too cheap. It
possibly is because it doesn't "reach"
the people from the rear end of a Pvl
man palace car at $400 a "reach." It
is printed at Lincoln, and Doc. Bixby

ENOUGH FOR ALL.
All the steel combines and the in-
dividual steel and iron companies are
gathering in as much as possible of the
iron ore lands of Minnesota. It's the
same old story, ore and orewhen one
man reaches out after a good thing
every one else at once evinces a desire
to become possessed of a like portion.
In the case of the Minnesota iron lands,
there seems to be enough to satisfy
every ope.Pioneer Press.
THOSE WOLF FARMS..
Some people are kicking because
there's a wolf farm or two out in Lyon
and Jackson counties. It seems strange
that anyone should find fault because a
farmer chooses to raise a few wolves.
The State offers a bounty for them and
how can the State expect to get them
unless somebody raises a few? A few
years ago the State offered a bounty
for sugar beets, and the beets were
raised, but it is difficult to see just
what benefit they were to the State.
So long as the State encourages wolf
raising there will be wolves and wolf
farms. Wh shouldn't there be? It's
a profitable business and the animals
are harmless.New Paynesville Press.
THE SHUTTING DOWN OF FACTORIES.
It is a curious thing that when a fac-
tory shuts down in these modern days
someone instantly cries that it is be-
cause of the action of the trust. It
does not take much of a memory to
recall that factories closed down in the
days before the trusts, and the fact
hardly occasioned comment outside of
the locality: in which they were lo-
cated.Mankato Free Press.
