F. WRIGHT. Editor. It seems to have been a bluff after all on the part of Russia. Things seem to be badly crippled at Cripple Creek these days. Chawles B. Cheney is working over time these days. Bo Jamison is a hard task-master. Russia and Japan are just standing pat at the present time and the war correspondents are sleeping on their arms. It is said that a reform will be start ed the government printing office. It has been a pretty bad case of ''pi" for some time. The Ohio state board of health will prevent the sale of toy pistols. That's a step in the right direction and other states might follow suit. craze are breaking ou here and there It's just the foam blowing off the stien of legitimate business, that's all. Tillman, the South Carolina mur derer, was declared not guilty by the jurj. That's the way they do busi ness down in the land of cotton and hell for niggers. Stillwater has formed a Municipal Improvement association which will agitate the question of municipal ownership of public utilities. Not a bad question to discuss to say the least. Minnesota won the football game with Iowa at Minneapolis last Satur day and now \ou can't touch Minne apolis with a forty foot pole. The Minnesota boys walked all over the lads from Iowa. It is currently reported and gener ally believed that Chawles B. Cheney will succeed genial but cunning Bo Jamison as private secretary to his excellency, provided his excellency is his own successor. Senator Hanna said at the meeting of the Civic Federation at Chicago the other day that the labor question was of far more importance than the selection of a president. There is con siderable truth in the statement of the senator. An equestrian statue to the memory of General W. T. Sherman was un veiled at Washington last Thursday, with appropriate ceremonies. Among the oartors wrho eulogized the great chieftain were President Roosevelt and Hon D. Henderson. The coming battle grounds of the world will be South America and Asia. Both countries are wildernesses of untold wealth and wrhen it comes to a division of the wealth of those coun tries and the development of the same there is going to be something doing. The Osakis Re\ lew has enlarged to an eight-page seven column paper and the change has been made possi ble the enterprise of the merchants of that place That sounds and looks well. Maj other towns in the State follow suit. The greatest problem of the age will be the assimilation of the jellow mass of humanity across the sea to the wrest of Uncle Sam. In the passing of this race of people there will be a &tir among some of the nations of the earth. Grover 01e\ eland in his speech at Chicago last week on "American Good Citizenship" said: '-I shall be the last of all our people to belie\ that the saving grace of patriotism among m\ countrymen is dead or will always sleep. I know that its timeh revival and acthitj mean the realisation of the loftiest hopes of free nation."

I times of peace prepare for war. Horse sense instead of strikes is the watchword of the Brotherhood of American Railway Employes in the twin cities. With this the slogan of the labor interests there ought to be a practical solution of labor difficulties in the near future. But employers must also adopt the same slogan to make the thing a success. The Alaskan boundary commission has settled the dispute between the United States and Great Britain over the boundary line between the two Countries in Alaskan territory and the commission has decided in favor of the American contention American citizen will lose a foot of the territory he has had possession of and which he believed was his. 0 It is the intention of the TJ i on in _______ the future to publish the potato mar- ^^o^^u.^. *v^ ^.^j The evil results of the speculative kets of Cambridge, Isanti and Zim- we have always found him to be frank, _...t i. ji.i.___. merman at the hour of going to press manly and outspoken.

There are wheels within wheels in Hennepin county, judging from appearances. W. J. Bry an has passed. He says: I am out of politics forever. I shall give all my attention to law, lectures and the Commoner hereafter. N man can say who the next Democratic nominee will be. No other man in the Republican party equals Roosevelt in the esteem the common people, and especially in the west. None equals Roosevelt in his power to command the greatest respect of all nations, and to wield an influence on the world at large." This is the way that Mark Twain roasts Tammany: I should think that any humane and honest person would rather e convicted of one robbery and one murder than become the cold and deliberate confederate in wholesale robbery and wholesale mur der by voting a Tammany ticket. Certainly if anything is proven up to the hilt, Tammany's financial history and health statistics of 1901 prove that Tammany's especial and remorseless trade is wholesale pillage and whole sale destruction of health and life." In an editorial on "The Never Ceasing Interest in Religion" the MinneapolisTim.es sajs: "There are a few dissenting voices as to the life and depth of religion and its place in the ethics of the race, but the dis senting voices 'are the weak voices and the strong clear notes of progress and tolerance drown out the pessimistic whine. Colton once said, men will wrangle for religion, write for it: fight for it: die for it am thing butlive for it, but in the new order of things they are learning to 'live for it' be fore all tilings." An effort is being made the large elevator interests of the northwest to have No. 2 northern wheat made de erable on contract at a fixed differ ential with No. 1 northern of which there is a great scarcity this season and it is said that some of the large elevators stand a chance of being t'' squeezed'' when it comes to the de livery of No. 1 northern wheat at the maturity of contracts.

Henry 'D. Baker, a* noted banker says: "Th political situation looks next ear to be even safer than it was four ears ago. The Democratic candidate next year will probably be some gold Dem ocrat who bolted Br\ an in 1896, but supported him in 1900, just to be reg ular. No person known to be un sound on the currency question seems at all likely to be elected president. Moreover, while it was an open ques tion four \ears ago, whether or not the Republicans could retain their ma jority in the senate for four years in the case of Democratic gains through the country, there will be no such question next \ear as there will be enough Republican hold-overs to as sure the senate being a Republican stronghold through the next adminis tration. There seems no likelihood of any political issue next \ear that could cause disquietude. If next ear should not be a good year, the trou ble would probably not be due to the fact of it being presidential year. The branch houses of the packing trust are getting ready to abandon deliver} to the retail butchers of the twin cities, Duluth and all places where the trust operates. This is a high-handed proceeding: and the cost will come out of the consumers of the meat in the end, for the retail'butcher will just tax it up to the trade. It' just another one of those what-are!- ou-going-to-do-about-it moves the trusts make when thej get business conditions where they want them.

Last winter when the new game and fish law was before the legislature the writer pointed out many unjust and tyranical provisions in the bill. The bill was evidently drafted for the sole benefit of rich city sportsmen. Many it stands onftheestatute books to-day stricken out th bill Bu the law a is far from perfect. We cordially en dorse the following sentiments espous ed by the Mankato Free Press: Why not frame the game laws so that the common people can enjoj par taking of a duck, or a prairie chick en, or a piece of venison once in a while? A they are now drawn up none but the gentleman sport is en abled to procure game. Those of the rich who are not good enough marks men to shoot a duck or a prairie chicken can afford to hire some one to hunt for them, while the people of moderate circumstances, who can not afford to lose a day's time from their work or to employ a hunter to "bag" the game for them, are forced to go without the luxury. Under the pressure of gun clubs and the gen tlemen sports game"laws have been enacted that have virtually cut off a majority of the people from eating game.
