GEO. F. WRIGHT, Editor. Republican Legislative Ticket. For Senator HENRY BARKER of Isanti county For Representatives EMMET MARK of Mille Lacs county E CRAIG of bheiburne county MCLEAN, of Anoka county IT takes the foreign quack to do the local "stunts" successfully. HE hog cholera has not as yet broken out among the coal barons. Potato bugs and mosquitos have been on the sick list the past season. WEATHER predictionsThere will be some awful political frosts the pres ent month. NEXT to a tombstone the nearest thing to death is a last year's village ordinance. HE Pennsylvania coal'miners' strike has now reached the ''Shoot Without Orders" stage. HE story that the American Econo mist was to suspend publication because of lack of support is denied. HERE is one of J. Adam Bede's iokes: "Why not establish a great national summer school in Duluth?" HE junketing editors are back at their desks and the paste pot has been rescued from innocuous desuetude. A CALIFORNIA woman who weighed over 25Q pounds tried fasting to reduce her weight and she is now fast in death. A LL roads are leading to the State fair this week which is the biggest ever and the twin cities are having all they can do to take care of the crowds. DICK CROKER has tired of running his English dairy farm and it is said that he will return to his old lair The Goddess of Liberty is getting ready to wear blue glasses. W E don't notice any page ads of coal stoves this fall. It looks lite they might as well go on the dump where some of the fellows who are blocking the coal strike ought to be. THE visible assets of the Chicago Bankers' Trust and Investment com pany found last week were four cuspi dors and seven waste paper baskets. The sheriff had gone before. THE candidates are off and will cdme down the home stretch on the six teenth of this ffiofith. Some will be pretty well faded when they pass tin ker the wire wffile the victorious will be glad that the race is over, iiiii IJX' UI JSS IN answering One of Our correspond ents we will say that we cannot ascer tain when the sultan of Sula was "coronated," but we are of the suspic ious opinion that he always was the whole cheesebox, crown and all. His wives are only incidents. THE total commerce of the world as approximated by the Getmatt govern ment amounted last ear to the sum of $23,000,800,000 and of this amount Eng land and her colonies got over $7,000,- 000,000 while the United States re* ceived about $2,340,000,000. HE Persrus Palls Journal went wild over the appearance of an automobile in that city the other day. It was the first auto that the people in that city ever saw. Pshaw, they are *real com mon things in Princeton these days. Better come down and see a real city. HE UNION reiterates, the Republi cans of the Forty-fifth legislative dis trict cannot afford to ignore Isanti county's only candidate at~the prima* ries on the 16th inst. In all faitness the Republicans of Isanti county a|e entitled to representation on the Re publican legislative ticket. Isanti has only one Republican candidateHop. H. P. Barker for State senator. The Anoka cabal has apparently singled out for defeat at the primaries si"on the 16th inst. that sturdy farmer and gallant Union Veteran, Hon. H. E. Craig of Sherburne county. But the astute Anoka politicians will discover when the votes are counted that bluff old Hugh Craig will lead^he van. If Mr. Prank T. White's candidacy suc ceeds in defeating any of the regular Republican candidates for the^legisla ture, Mr. Craig will no61ibevtite' Mark this prediction. viftttnf REV. SAM SMALL got drunk down in Vermont the other day while about to deliver a temperance address and now Carrie Nation has been ejected froma Maine hotel for hollering right out loud at the dinner table for beer, as she said that she understood there was a bar in the hotel. What are we com ing to, any way? PRESIDENT SCHWAB of the steel octopus, appears not to be the physical wreck that some have made out he was. He is still alive and kicking and is talking of going to Europe to organ ize a gigantic steel trust. He is no more one of your ordinary "captains of industry." He is a retired admiral of industry. iT.is said that many farmers in south ern Indiana intend to go out of grain raising and put their farms in grass and engage in stock raising as the farm hands have organized a union and demand a scale of wages that the farm ers say they cannot pay and make any profits Since the unions were organ ized two years ago the wages of farm hands have doubled. It is worse than this down in Kansas where the farmers have to provide free cocktails and chewing and smoking tobacco. And then we hear the people talking about "the man with the hoe." JUDGE EDSON, one of the candidates for congress on the Republican ticket in the Eighth district, is a courtly, pleasant old gentleman, and we are glad to note that no attempt has been made by any one to asperse his charac ter. If he should succeed in winning out at the primaries we have no hesi tation in saying that the Republicans of Mille Lacs county will accord him just as loyal support as they accorded Page Morris. But we honestly believe Mr. J. Adam Bede is better qualified to represent the district in congress, hence the- UNION advocates his nom ination. Mr. Bede is a bright and brainy young man, full of vim and vigor, and would not suffer by compar ison with his predecessors. A district that has been represented by the dig nified and eloquent Morris and the brilliant but erratic Charley Towne, cannot afford to reject J. Adam Bede for a man of mediocre abilities. ONE of the best known Republicans of Sherburne county, in a personal let ter to the publisher of the UNION, says: "With all my heart I thank you for your timely and unanswerable 'Plea for Fair JWay'edUriaHn the last issue of the UNION. YOU voiced my senti ments, and, to my personal knowledge, the sentiments of many life-long Sher burne county Republicans. You and I have not pulled together, but I have always respected you for your manly independence and the fearless manner in which you express your views. Wish here were more editors and public men of your calibre. You have made the UNION a splendid paper, and it has been an important factor in the up building of your thriving town and County. Senator Barker and Mr. Craig will receive the support of the majority of Sherburne county Republicans. I am not personally ac quainted with either Mr. Mark or Mr. McLean, but I presume they are the choice of their respective counties and that being so they are good enough for me." THE SE Chicago university professors are nothing if not original. They are given to much thought and contempla tion and their horizon of theory is a very broad one. Prof. Triggs in a re cent lecture says that we will soon be a nation of shopkeepers. He says that the whole groundwork of our govern ment was wrong, and he even says that patriotism and nationality aie out grown fads. Evidently the professor has never ran for office, or he would not talk of nationality being an out grown fad On*the wreck of our polit ical government will arise a trust, headed by some Croesus with a board of managers of multi-millionaires and a directorate instead of the two houses of congress. Instead of patriotism there will be the love for money and the. rules tot getting it. This may be some improvement as at the present time there are no known rules for, get ting money. Every man is a rule unto himself. 'We presume that under the regime as outlined by Prof. Triggs, there will even be hope for the tramp to become the owner of an automobile. A millionaire in the new era will be no better than-a JS9-per-week tramp. Instead of electing congressmen we will elect storekeepers who will look after the peoples' property. The gov ernment will own everything and the people will be known as stockholders instead of citizens. Instead of paying taxes to the government the people w^jL^eeelve "sustenance, from the gov emerit.' Indeed, wntit-a happy con -suirimation it Would be. But THE BUST BUSINESS MdX: One of the natural products of ttie age and the result of the busy tread mill of life is the busy business man with his net work of complicated busi ness entanglements that are dragging him down to premature old age and an early grave. This individual is a most interesting study. There are no other specimens of the human kind like him. He is the quintessence of tremendous power and vast possibilities. He tow ers to-day as a mighty genius, and to morrow he gets a funeral with all the modern attachments and a passing mention in the press, and others take his place. Nevertheless, while he lives and has his being he is a busy man. The old placard, "This is my busy day," is a useless thing for him, for are not all his days busy days? He gets up in the morning, finds time to swallow a bite or two. and is off for his office. He generally manages to read a portion of the morning paper, and by the time he has pulled a cigar out of sight he is ready to look over the morning's mail. After he has digested the correspondence )he turns around and dictates to his stenographer for a short time, leaves any number of in structions about the management of the business, does a lot of talking through the 'phones and ascertains that his chums and associates are still on deck and so makes arrangements for the day. By this time it is noon hour and then he seeks his old familiar place at the buffet dining room, where there is a happy combination of mir rors and mahogany, ebony-hued wait ers, and the bar tender in his immacu lately white coat and apron. There is an air ol rest and comfort. The grat ing sounds of the street do not enter, and indeed there is peace and quiet for the very busy business man who thus far in the day has already injected enough energy into his business to last until he returns. Along about two o'clock this busy individual is found at his desk again. He is a bit tired and annoyed with the affairs of the world, and a business detail that goes astray temporarily gives him a most awful pain and shock. As a result the sten ographei, the clerks, the office boy and others who may chance to be near by feel the shock also, and feel sorry for the tired out business man with his burdens and cares. There are a few more letters oh his desk by this time and he goes at them with a vengeance and soon has his mind free of them and has thrown nine-tenths of the3duty and burden onto the poor stenographer who finishes the task. It is now almost four o'clock and he feels the need of a little fresh air and tonic and helpro ceeds to get both. By the time he has got his regular allowance be wends his way back to his desk and commences to close up the day's business proceed ings. He has as it were a breathing gpell for a, few minutes before he must go home and get ready for another day. He goes home and maybe he does not go home. If he is too busy of course he stays down town and the 'phone be tween himself and the house commences to work and a message of regret to his wife is sent over the wire to the effect that he is too busy to come home for supper, and mustand here most any old excuB goes. But if he does go home it is almost as bad as though he had remained away. The rapidly re volving details of a very busy business man have got him in such a frame of, mind that he forgets the names of his children, doesn't know whether the hired girl is a new one or an old one, though he may have a rather vivid recollection that he had met his wife before. It is in this rather unsettled condition that he retires late in the evening and snatches a few hours' rest which places him in shape to pilot his business through another busy day with the aid of his stenographer and a few trustworthy clerks. HE St. Paul Dispatch says in com menting on the necessity of better roads in this country: "Before sub stantial progress can be made in get ting better, if not good, roads, the com mutation law must be wiped out and a money tax laid and paid. The whole system must be overhauled and radi cally changed. Roads must be classi fied and main lines put in charge of the county, leaving laterals to the towns. When main lines give their object lessons, the laterals will follow in betterment. That is the first pract ical step." ISANTI county Republicans present the name of only One candidate for the State legislatureHon. H. P. Barker for State senator. Isanti county Re publicans ohave no other candidate. Is it good politics, is it good sense, is it right, is it fair for the 'Republican voters of the other three counties of the Forty-fifth district to disregard the wishes of the Republicans county? THE PRINCETON TJNIOK: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1902. 3.of- Isanti SOME of the papers of the State are busy educating the voters on the con stitutional amendments to be voted on at the fall election. Better wait until the primary election is past and gone, as the voters need considerable en lightenment on this new phase of citi zenship. HE mimic war between the army and the navy that is being waged down on the coast of the north Atlantic looks all right on paper and in the press dis patches, but when it comes to the real thing it would be a much hotter propo sition. The only thing that seems to be missing, however, is the embalmed beef. MR. MORGAN on his return from Europe was met at the steamer by a lot of solicitious newspaper men who wanted to interview and snapshot the big gun, but Morgan said he would not pose for $5,000,000, nor would he allow himself to talk to the American people on the end of a lead pencil wielded by an imaginative reporter. Mr. Morgan picked up his luggage and his collec tion of art and went home to see if there was coal enough in the cellar to run him through the winter. Morneau-Heitinan Wedding. Last Tuesday morning Prank P. Morneau and Miss Ella Heitman were married at the Catholic church by Rev. Fr. Levings. The ceremony was performed in the presence of a few relatives and friends. The bride wore a wedding gown of light blue silk mull and carried white roses. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Heit man and was born and raised on the Heitman homestead near Princeton. After the wedding Mr. and Mrs. Mor neau left on an extended wedding trip and will visit at Chicago, Le Belle, Deyils Lake and other places, and re turn home the 21st of this month. The bride and groom are well known in this community and have a wide circle of friends who wish them a merry and happy sail on the sea of matrimony. Pleased With the Country. C. Carpenter, who last spring moved onto the farm he purchased of Chas. VanWormer, says that his first season's farming in Mille Lacs county has been very satisfactory. He says that his oats measured five feet in the bundle and that, was good enough for any farmer. His corn that he planted Decoration Day which was very late for corn, is quite a long margin this side of a failure and should September prove a good warm month it will ripen in very good shape. Mr. Carpenter has several thousand head of cabbages and has an acre of onions, all of which are doing well. He set out a straw berry bed last spring, and hopes in another year to see it in good condi tion. He intends to go into fruit quite extensively as he came from a great fruit section in Ohio and he sees no reason why fruit raising wont pay here if attended to properly. Cooling Apparatus for Homes. Willis L. Moore, chief of the weather bureau, has recently secured a patent on his cooling apparatus for homes. At about the same expense required to heat a house in winter you can cool it in summer to any temperature desired. Besides cooling the air this machine renders it dry and healthful. With such a machine and golden grain belt beer you can make the hottest weather not only bearable, but exceedingly pleasant. Brewed from the purest barley malt and hops this beer is deli cious and refreshing and should be in every home. Order of the nearest dealer or be supplied by Henry Veidt, Princeton. Northern Minnesota Apples. To those who a~e skeptically in clined regarding the conditions of the soil in Crow Wing county for the rais ing of fruit, the sight of a wagonload of apples in the market yesterday would have convinced them beyond a doubt, that after all, this would in a a short time be one of the best fruit growing counties in the State. Joseph Ruttger drove to Brainerd to-day from the Bay Lake country with a wagon load of apples raised on the Wasserzieher farm. The apples were of different varieties but it was a sight good for sore eyes. They are beauties. Brainerd Arena.
