WHERE E STOOD.
What a Washington Correspondent Says
of the President Maker.
Francis E. Leupp, Washington cor
respondent of the New York Evening
Post, has written a book on "The
Man Roosevelt" which will be issued
soon. Mr. Leupp devotes a chapter
to the late Senator Hanna, in which
"But no one who was well ac
quainted with Mr. Hanna's personality
was deceived as to where he stood.
He was not of the presidential mold.
The senate suited his tastes and his
powers. He wanted a free hand. He
hated infinitesimal worries. He lacked
the patience necessary to deal with all
sorts of men at once as a master and
a supplicant. He loved authority
more than insignia. He would rather
administer the affairs of a nation in
the name of another than let others
administer them in his name. Nature
had marked him for a king-maker, not
"Bearing these facts in mind, it will
not be difficult to understand how he
could discourage discussion of his
candidacy by treating it as a joke,
and yet permit his 'boom' to survive
when he could just as well crush it.
There probably was never a moment
when he felt the slightest temptation to
enter the lists for the nomination, but
neither was there a moment when he
would have been willing to forego the
power to award it to some one else.
If Republican organizations anywhere
saw fit to name him as their choice for
president, why should he put any ob
stacles in the way? He was entirely
friendly to Roosevelt and looked to
see him nominated he would not ac
cept the nomination himself if it were
offered him, and he did not expect it
to be offered but to go into the con
vention with a large following at his
back and be able to prevent a bad mis
take if it threatened would be a great
"Politics he knew to be like fire,
very uncertain no one could foretell
where it would break out next. Every
thing and everybody might be going
Roosevelt's way to-day, yet to-mor
row might witness a stampede toward
another candidate or a general break
up. The wise politician, he reasoned,
is he who never takes anything for
granted, but provides himself against
RED RIVER POTATOES.

Culls by the TradeMinimum Price 35
The potato growers convention held
in Moorhead recently decided to in
stitute a system of grades for potatoes
somewhat similar to grades of wheat,
and recommend that potato grades be
No. 1 Red River Ohios shall be
Early Ohios grown in the Red River
Valley, true to name, reasonably free
from scab, ripe, smooth and sound.
Clean according to season, sorted by

No. 2 Red River Ohios shall be

sorted over a IJ4 inch screen.

The recommendation of the committee
on permanent organization that all
growers in the association agree to
sell only P. O. B. at their railway
station was adopted without a dissent
ing vote. The recommendation that
it be a requisite for membership that
each member agree not to contract
potatoes before September 1st of any
year at a lower price than 35 cents
per bushel was also adopted after a
lengthy discussion, some of the gen
tleman present being in favor of fixng
the minimum contract price at 40 cents.

There was a lecture on socialism at
the school house in district No. 6 last
week and the verdict of a majority is
that the speakers mixed a few good
ideas among a large amount of im

do more to kill socialism than all the
opposition that can be brought against
it. We have nothing to fear from such
men. They will get a few followers,
but the majority of the people in this
country are too well anchored to good
sound principles and good govern

The Importation of Eggs.
The egg market has ruled abnormal
ly high throughout the United States
during the winter, and for the first
time this season eggs have been im
ported from Europe, and for the first
time in about fifteen years they have
sold at a profit of from six to eight
cents, after paying the duty of five
cents a dozen. In former years there
were large importations of eggs from
Canada and Europe, but importations
from Europe have not been profitable.
The fact that there is now a profit of
six to eight cents per dozen in impor
tation from Europe, suggests an open

Hauling Steamer to Mille Lacs.

''The steamer Remnica, which is to

over land to Mille Lacs lake, is ready
to start on the haul of eighteen miles.
D. M. Falconer, who has the contract
for moving her has taken the boiler,
engine and machinery, and removed
the pilot house and part of the deck,
and loaded them on three sets of
sleighs. The hull is loaded on an ex

The West Mille Lacs road is the route
selected. Blocks and tackle will be

encountered on the way."
