ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE McKINLEY
"OuiTfcarnest prayer is that God will gra
ciously* vouchsafe prosperity, happiness and
peace to all our neighbors and like blessings to
all the peoples and powers of the earth."
^Those we,re*tthe closing words of
President McKinley's Buffalo speech
last Friday, and su ch a benediction
pronounced,over a great concourse of
people fr om north and sooth and east
and west, from the northern limits of
Canada! to the pampas of South Amer-
ica, and from all corners of the earth.
Hardly had the echoes of the speech
died away before the president was
shot down li ke a dog by a vvretch of an
anarchist by the name of Leon Czolgosz,
a miserable specimen of a man who
has been associated with anarchist
societies for a long time, but who
claims his foul and hellish crime was
of his own dastardly and fiendish con-
ception. Even while President Mc
Kinl ey was uttering the words quoted,
this fiend stood before him debating
whether he had better shoot the presi-
dent at th at time or not. returned
the damnable imp of an anarchist
on Saturday to perpetrate his awful
crime, and while the president was
standing in the great temple of music
the scene itself enough to inspire a
spirit of patriotism in the coldest
breastthis villain under cov er of
friendship and loyalty makes a murder-
ous assault on the president. What a
spectacle in free America! And at a
time when every condition tended to
peace and happiness.
The savage beasts and reptiles will
utter a note of warni ng at times, and
man has some show for his life. The
wild beasts and reptiles have lairs and
nests, but the assassin is cunning in
his diabolical deeds. Though under
the watchful care of secret service mea
and detectiv es the president could not
escape the assassin's bullets, though
&is escape from being mortally wounded
is indeed providential. I is hard to
realize that such a crime would be pos-
sible, and its perpetration reaches be
yond the pale of human conception.
But the deed admonishes us of the"
fact that there lurks in our own free
country a body of human excrement
that befouls and contaminat es any gov-
ernment of civilized man. This human
scum is anarchy pure and simple, and,
alas, we tolerate it in our own country,
where a system of government raises
up the humblest lad to the highest
office in the land. A government of-
fering the grektest human possibili-
ties to ambitious men and women, and
yet suckling at its bosom is the vile
and hideous serpent of anarchy.
I is high time th^ this band of
murderers and society wreckers was
broken up and banished. W exclude
the "heathen" Chinese, and permit
the red anarchist to co me here and
raise hell generally. The fact that our
president's life is saved does not in the
least lessen the enormity of the crime.
MINNESOTA with a good corn crop
and with an abundance of grain this
year will be in a position to turn off
some good fat hogs and cattle next
winter and spriner. There are some
good opportunities for stockmen in the
northwest the coming feeding season,
who can with the proper kind of good
feeders find a market for some high-
priced cattle next winter and early
spring, before the grass cattle of the
southwe st find the ir way to market.
With a great shortage of feed in Illi-
nois, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska
fat stock will bring a high price next
winter. A farmer in Rock county
where a good ma ny cattle and hogs are
fed, says wh en corn goes higher th an
45 cents live stock feeding is somewhat
uncertain, but the markets must have
a certain amount of fat stock at least,
and indications point to fat cattle sel-
ling at an advance of 25 to 50 per cent
over present prices. Minnesota farm-
ers should put more of their grain
through the live stock mill, and keep
the ir good stockers and feeders at
home to make a profit for them.
THE canine census of the world gives
France 2,864,000 dogs, that country hav-
ing 75 dogs to every 1000 inhabitants.
The United Stat es is credited with 1,-
500,000 dogs. This is certainly a great
mistake, for a good lively dog fight in
any back alley will bring out a pack of
curs, good, bad and indifferent. One
has only to figure there are several
million back alleys in this country to
get at an approximate estimate of the
number of dogs in the country. The
recent assessment returns in Minn e-
sota, however, would indicate that dog
meat is getting scarce, but this not so.
The dog owners were 'out to beat the
og tax and they did it.

MCKINLEY ON RECIPROCITY.
^The address delivered by President
McKinley at the Pan-American exposi-
tion, at Buffalo last Thursday on the
commercial status of the United States,
is -one of the be st public utterances
of the president. I was fraught with
so much of national brotherhood and
kindly spirit. Speaking of the benefits
of expositions, he said:
Expositions are the timekeepers of progress.
They record the world's advancement. They
stimulate the energy, enterprise and intellect
of the people and quicken human genius.
They go into the home They broaden and
brighten the daily life of the people They
open mighty storehouses of information to the
student Every exposition, great or small, has
helped to some onward step Comparison of
ideas is always educational, and as such in
structs the brain and hand of man Fuendly
rivalry follows, which is the spur to industrial
improvement, the inspiration to useful inven
tion and to high endeavor in all departments of
human activity It exerts a study of the ants,
comforts and even the whims of the people, and
recognizes the efficacy of high quality and new
prices to win their favor.
A system which provides a mutual exchange
of commodities is manifestly essential to the
continued healthful growth of our export trade.
We must not repose in fancied security that we
can forever sell everything and buy little or
nothing. We should take from our customers
such of their products as we can use without
harm to our industries and labor. Recipiocity
is the natural outgrowth of our wonderful in
dustrial development under the domestic policy
now firmly established.
The period of exclusiveness is past. The ex~
pansion of our trade and commerce is the pres
sing problem. Commercial wars are unprofit
able A policy of good will and friendly trade
relations will prevent reprisals. Reciprocity
treaties are in harmony with the spirit of the
times measures of retaliation are not If per
chance, some of our tariffs are no longer needed
for revenue or to encourage and protect our in
dustries at home, why should they not be em
ployed to extend and promote our maikets
abroad9
The wisdom and energy of all the nations are
none too great for the world's work. The suc
cess of art, science, industry and invention, is
an international asset and a common gloiy
and for sentimental local reasons our
congressmen and senators have failed
to let the reciprocal horse onto the
race course of commerce. Our political
ideals are all right, but when such
vital matters as foreign trade relations
come up for discussion our great com-
mercial interests rise up in arms to
guard their trade privileges.
*HE PBIKCETON UNIOK^THUBSBAY, SEPTEMBEK ia|*1901.
A the exposition of the joint resour-
ces of the United States, Canada, Mexi-
co and the South American countries,
the president could not" refrain from
torching on trade topics, as effecting
our own commercial interests, and he
expressed himself very earnestly as in
favor of reciprocal relations with our
neighbors, who are marching along
the highway of commerce as well as
ourselves. said:
Such expressions would indicate a
desire on the part of President Mc-
Kinley to have some of our reciprocity
treaties now hung up in the august
senate taken down and made living
realities, instead of remaining hollow
promises.
The next congress should take up
this matter and try and adjust our
trade conditions to the new ordei of
things. The high joint commission
has so far failed to'establish reciprocal
relations between this country and
Canada, because of selfish differences,
But we must remember that our
present powerful position as a great
commercial nation, cannot be forever
entrenched behind the old tariff wall.
W must put in a few draw bridges
and gates here and there for our neigh-
bors, for unless we do the old wall will
crumble sooner or later.
THE poorest paid men in th" employ
of Uncle Ssm are the star route car-
riers in the postal service. They haul
the mail sack long distances for a mere
pittance, and in one sense are foolish
for doing so. If they would all stick
for higher wages they would get them.
But so long as some think it is worth
less for the sake of the honor in the
job, the contracts will be let at bed rock
prices.

The Mississippi river is so low th at

river will be obliged to lay up until the
water reaches a more favorable stage.

low th at it was necessary to lath and
plaster the same in order to hold what
little water there was.Stillwater Ga-

FOREST PRESERVATION.
If Minnesota is to mainta in its pres-
tage as an agricultural State, some-
thing must be done to restore its forest
area, as well as to restore its natural
water surface. I is to be hoped tb at
he report of the tax commission, now
being prepared, will not overlook this
important feature. I should contain
some provision for the exemption from
taxation of natural forest lands, and
for bounties on planted groves, as well
as similar encouragement for the main-
tenance of artificial ponds or reser-
voirs, and the restoration of natural
lakes and swamp lands. Ma ought
some time to learn that he cannot want-
only destroy all the conditions estab-
lished by nature, without reaping a
corresponding penalty. The world is
full of examples, but man is blinded by
grasping greed, and would ev er reach
for the present dollar to the lasting
injury of succeeding generations.

THE EXTRA SESSION.
The taxpayers want th at new tax
law to go into effect next year when
new personal and real estate assess-
ments are made." This was promised
by the Republican party. The Gov-
ernor said he would do his part but he
is not answerable for the leglislature.
If the extra session is not called it will
be a confession that either some secret
and not creditable influence is over-
powerful, or th at the Republican Gov-
ernor and Republican advisors cannot
trust an overwhelmingly Republican
legislature Alexandria Post-News.
ANARCHISTSAPOSTLES OF HELL.
The Haymarket at Chicago a few
years ago opened the eyes of America
to the real character and purposes of
he anarchists whom we had permitted
to cultivate upon our shrinking soil the
foul plants of their creed. The murder
of a president of France, of an empress
of Austria, of a king of Italyall of
them persons of such kindly individual
disposition as could not be concealed
by rank and numerous attempts,
which failed, to perpetrate equally
atrocious crimes, have since mark ed
the anarchist teachings as the creed of
demons in human form. And yet
America, after a brief excitement over
the Haymarket massacre, apparently
closed her eyes again and has allowed
these apostles of hell to go on with
their propaganda of destruction. A
leading sympathizer with the Ha y-
market conspirators, Altgeld, has ev en
been tolerated as one of the foremost
leaders of a great political party. And
now behold the results of our blindness,
O Americans, as our beloved president
falls before anarchist bullets at Buffalo!

States. The percentage is deadly
blood-curdling.Duluth News-Tribune
