A fall of snow, the first of the fall,
occurred at Virginia early Monday.
It lasted but a short time, but was
sufficient to convince one that summer
in the range country is a thing of the
past. Crops, flowers and garden
produce were damaged in the country
immediately surrounding Virginia,
and heavy frosts are reporhted from
other western Mesaba range points.

six feet in diameter fell on the farm of

On exploding, forks of lightning shot
out from the burning meteor. The
fire was extinguished before any dam
age wa's done. Zaiger was sitting in
a window during the storm and saw
the meteor fall and afterwards ex
plode. He is now in a critical condi
tion, caused from the shock of the
fright from seeing th* explosion. His
eyes are also affected from the light
and heat emitted from the meteor.

Dunn Opens he Campaign.
That was a good speech and a tell
ing one delivered by Bob Dunnac
he is familiarly called by his friends
the Republican candidate for gov
ernor, at the banquet of the Republi
can club at Duluth. It was character
istic of ^the man. For there were no
rhetorical frills about it. It was a
plain, straightforward business talk,
bristling with strong points on the
business matters which most concern
the people of the Statethe adminis
tration of the public business. And
he spoke by the card. For these are
matters of which his mind has been
His Duluth speech was largely upon
some of these or kindred subjects.
While standing squarely upon the Re
publican platform he supplements it
with announcements of his own views
on important public problems which
he will urge upon the legislature and
the people, and which will generally
command public approval. He re
pairs an oversight in the Republican
platform by a strong plea for the rati
fication of the constitutional amend
ment raising the railroad gross earn
ings tax to four per cent. He would
have the primary election law ex
tended to the nomination of State
officials, but with amendments that
will cure the acknowledged defects of
the present law. Bis proposition that
the interest of the internal improve
ment fund of $280,000 be devoted to
good roads will be generally welcomed
by the friends of the latter. The per
ennial subject of a reform in our pres
ent tax laws receives his attention. He
especially favors a gross earnings tax
of public corporations, but of course
recognizes the necessity of a constitu
tional amendment, both for this and
other arrangements for equalizing
taxation. He advocates a law pro
hibiting the giving or receiving of
passes on railroads. The abolition of
this practice would enable the rail
roads to reduce fares. Although he
was the first to recommend State
board of control in this State he has
never deemed it wise to place the edu
cational institutions under its charge
and in this he shows his good sense.
He wants the State to take better care
than it has of the old Union soldiers
in their declining years, and urges any
needed increase of the ta:r levy for
that purpose.
These are the chief
full to overflowing these ten years or' tension of the safeguards of the pri
more past. He is probably better in
formed on the whole about them than
any other man in the State. His
eight years' experience as State audi- safeguards for congressional districts,
tor made him familiar with all the
most important phases and branches
of the business of the State govern
ment/and he was endowed, by idiosyn
crasy and temperament, with that na
me civism which impelled him to be
always on the lookout for better ways
of doing the public business and im
proving the public service.
So it was that while State auditor
his annual reports teemed with intel
ligent and often original suggestions
for improved administrative and finan
cial methods which would lessen the
burdens of the people or distribute
them more equally or increase the
efficiency and economy of the public
service. It was in those reports that
he took the initiative this State in
recommending the establishment of
a State board oi control. He was the
first to urge an increase of the gross
earnings tax on railroads from three
to four per cent. He made many im
provements in the administration of
the State school and other lands.
The legislation which has resulted in
giving the State a large increase from
its iron deposits on its school, swamp
and other lands is due chiefly to his
sturdy resistance to the more wasteful
methods insisted on by the large pri
vate interests concerned. The rev
enues of the State from these and
other sources, including timber, were
largely increased as the result of his
improved methods.
+opics of his
sensible and practical business talk
at Duluth. In conclusion he pledges
himself, if elected, to "a fearless and
impartial enforcement of all laws on
our statute books which protects the
interests of the people from the en
croachments of corporate greed and
aggression." The Pioneer Press does
not think he is far wrong when he
predicts that Roosevelt will sweep the
State by at least 100,000 majority, and
that the State ticket will be elected
by at least 75,000.Pioneer Press.
Dunn's Views on Public Questions.
We believe that open-minded readers
of Mr. Dunn's speech opening the
campaign will be most impressed with
the reason, sanity and moderation
his views on those delicate pulic ques
tions avoided in the platform. His
discussion of these recalls the cool,
sagacious and business-like adminis
tration of the auditor's office more
than the vote-chasing fever and ex
travagance of the campaign.
The important subjects of legislation
continuously before the people are the
laws relating to elections and taxa!
tion. Every legislature must expect
to meet and deal with bills on these
subjects in the light of strong public
demand for change. It is proper that
every governor should have a policy
upon them, not to enforce upon the
legislature, but to work out by con
ference and modification in harmony
derstanding of difficulties and a clear
perception of practical ends that
promises efficient co-operation with
the legislature.
He seems to realize the necessity of
amending the primary law so as to
remove its defects and extend the
benefit of its excellent features to all
the offices of the State. We get some
glimpse of his meaning when he dwells
on the danger of minority rule and the
necessity of maintaining political
party organization. We should be
glad to see in this suggestion of ex-
mary law over the choice of delegates
to State conventions, and the restor
ation of the convention under the same
counties and large cities
Mr. Dunn's discussion of taxation
is equally reasonable and intelligent.
Although he believes that much can be
done to correct inequalities by better
administration of the present laws, as
he proved himself in dealing with the
iron range mines, he is rather hope
less of much betterment of the laws
themselves under the present constitu
tion. We believe that the best advised
legislators will agree with him and
that attention will be concentrated on
the framing of a simple and effective
constitutional amendment that will
command enough public interest and
confidence to be adopted. Hoping
that the four per cent gross earnings
amendment will be adopted, he ex
presses the firm belief that this would
be the best method of collecting taxes
from public service corporations.
Other subjects are discussed in the
same spirit, such as the removal of
educational institutions from the board
of control and the rescue of the good
roads fund from wasteful and ineffec
tive dissipation: but we prefer to con
centarte public attention on these
two important subjects.Minneapolis
