DAMAGIE_SUPPORT Hon. J. F. Jacobson is Handicapped With the Support of Rene- gades and Soreheads. If Mr. Jacobson is Defeated He Can Blame Eastman and the Other Traitors. If bitterness results from the pres ent republican campaign it will come from only one source. No one, of the seven announced candidates has shown any unseemly desire for the nomination to head the ticket. Not one has shown any hostility toward any of the other six, nor indeed the slightest ill-feeling or ill-will. There has been nothing, so far as the candidates themselves are con cerned, that the most captious critic could find fault with. They have shown a dignity, a disposition to place the good of the party above self, and a level headedness that is most admirable. The one discordant note in the en tire state comes from St. Cloud. There, Mr. Alvah Eastman, receiver of the United States land office, by the grace of Theodore Roosevelt, republi can, and president of the state normal school board by the grace of Gov. John A. Johnson, democrat, has by. or without the grace of Mr. Jacob Jacobson, continued himself the lat ter *s spokesman and sponsor. He outlines in his paper the policies ot the Jacobson campaign, and, so far as the public can judge, is the ac credited molder of Jacobson opinion. Mr. Eastman is not mealy-mouthed in his methods and expressions. He not only is the guardian of Mr. Jacob son's interests, but in that position, accredits himself and those who fol low him, as being the only genuine, self-forgetting, patriotic friends and honest guides of the people. He un hesitatingly declares that unless Jacobson is nominated Johnson will be re-elected that the corporations are all opposing Jacobson and that his defeat means the triumph of cor porate interests^ through corporate money, that only such corrupt tactics can defeat Jacobson, and that all who are opposing him are corporate tools and the servile followers of special interests. Mr. Eastman is needlessly bitter and vindictive in his assertions and charges, unless his purpose is to de feat the man he is pretending to sup port, and then again lead the bolt in his professed party to Johnson. Mr R. C. Dunn stood in Minnesota politics for everything Mr. Jacobson stands for For years they fought their battles together. Mr. Eastman bolted Mr. Dunn's nomination and made himself the leader of the repub lican opposition at the polls. He was rewarded by Gov. Johnson, and his influence at the state eapitol the past year has been recognized and sought. If Johnson is re-elected Mr. Eastman will not suffer in that regard, but Mr. Jacobson should understand that Mr. Eastman's tactics are driving away from him friends, and, es pecially, tne second choice friends upon whom he must depend for suc cess. He should also understand that, even if nominated, these tactics, if continued, are very apt to defeat his election. People can be led by argument, but they cannot be driven by abuse, by vituperation, or by the English of the fish-wife.Duluth News- Tribune. IRYIEHEAR FROM. Says Abras, at Time of Capture, Was Try ing to Dispose of Cutlery. Sheriff Shockley last week received a letter from Donald H. Irvine, the Duluth detective who testified in Justice Chadbourne's court against Riley and Abras, the two burglars now held to the grand jury in the Hennepin county jail on a charge of entering the Evens hardware store and stealing therefrom valuable prop erty Mr. Irvine says in part as fol lows*, 'Abras offered for sale ten knives to Abraham Winer, which fact I did not know when I was in your city, but Winer will be able to testify to this fact." lb appears that Detective Irvine was the officer deputed to search the pris oners after they were landed in the cells at Duluth and that at the time he came to Princeton he was unaware of the fact that the Jew, Abras, had in his possession any of the plunder when arrested in the second-hand store of Abraham Winer. The fact that he was captured while in the act of negotiating the sale of this cutlery points strongly to the conclusion ar rived at by the authorities that he is an accomplice de facto. In our mind there is no doubt of this, and we furthermore believe that the evidence of Riley, wherein he declared that the Jew was an innocent party and that he met him for the first time in Nicker son, was part of a prearranged plan whereby it was sought to secure the liberation of the sheeny that he might assist Riley to escape. Had Abras been liberated for want of evidence Riley could then have sworn that he received the plunder from the Jew and knew not from whence it had been ob tained. There is scarcely a doubt that these two robbers had been working to gether and that Abras, the Jew, acted as a watchdog for Riley while he burglarized the Evens store. Three reputable citizens have made affidavit that they saw him in Princeton on the day upon which the store is said to have been burglarized, and the sheriff declares that measurements of foot prints in the Evens alley correspond with the shoes worn by both of the prisoners. There is reason to believe that the two criminals were palsthat Riley followed the cracksman's art while the sheeny played the double role of sentinel and disposer of the plunder at the Jew fences. COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES Of Northwestern Hospital Nurses at Opera House Wednesday, May 31. The commencement exercises of the senior class of the Northwestern Training School for Nurses will be held at Jesmer's opera bouse at 8 o'clock on Thursday evening, May 31. and the public is cordially invited. The young ladies who upon this oc casion will receive diplomas of gradu ation are Misses M. Inez Michelson, Honora Brennan and Alice Liundstedt. They have proven themselves excellent nurses, and their large experience at the Northwestern hospital fully quali fies them to undertake any branch of the profession which may be required of them. A program of more than ordinary attractiveness has been arranged for the commencement exercises, which we hereunder give in detail: Overture Orchestra Invocation Eev Henderson Esbar All Attainments the Result of Effort Alice Lundstedt Solo- ^Vofces-af tare Past" (Ureene) Mrs Cooney Adaress 'The Modern :Nuise E McMillan Overture Orchestra Oration The Ideal Nurse Inez Michelson Duett 'The Mountain Inn (Lobiska) S Petterson Herbert Anderson P' esentation of Class Pins Honoia Brennan feo'o King of the Mam Bingham) Fremont Woodcock Addiess The Choice of a Profession Dr Cooney Oveiture Orchestra Benediction Rev E Cathcart MUST DISPLAY SIGNAL!*. Imperative tliat Patrons of Rural Deliv ery Service Comply With Order. On and after July 1, 1906, patrons of the rural delivery service will be required to display signals on their boxes when they leave mail in them for carriers to collect, as, after that date, carriers, when serving their routes, will not be required to open and examine any mail boxes except those to which they have mail to de liver and those on which signals are displayed to indicate there is mail for carriers to collect. Those patrons whose boxes are not provided with signals must attach thereto some device which, when dis played, will plainly show passing carriers there is mail to be collected. It is not necessary that such device shall be either complicated or costly: a very simple arrangement will an swer the purpose. Carriers must lower the signals on boxes after making collections, pro vided no mail is left therein: and must display the signals when they deposit mail for patrons, unless the patrons have made request to the con trary. The carriers must promptly inform patrons of their routes with regard to this order. Killed the Wrong Cow. Bill Pratt, the gigantic "critter" sticker of the Gottwerth meat market, went forth on Monday last with a scraggy old cow to the slaughter. Both reached the place of butchery, and, while Bill was arranging the fix ings for execution, the cow escaped into a neighboring pasture. There were other cows there. Bill, upon missing his "critter," bolted forth and captured the first animal which bore a resemblance to the lost dried up. He butchered it and returned home with its carcass. The next day Gottwerth was visited by a good natured old farmer, who presented a bill for a milk eow appropriated by his (Gottwerth's) butcher under pe culiar circumstances. The farmer said that, as it was impossible to ex tract any milk from the "critter" left in exchange, he considered $28 a very fair difference in the two animals. Gottwerth paid the bill. Of course it comes out of Bill's salary. R. C. DUNN, Publisher. Terms $1.00 Per Year. PRINCETON, MILIE LACS COUNTY, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY, MAY 24, 1906.

A PICKEREL PARTY. Misses Margaret Campbell and Grace Dunn Capture Big Fish in Elk Lake. Miss Margaret Campbell of the Hamline university was the guest of her schoolmate, Miss Grace Dunn, on Saturday and Sunday. Accom panied by George Dunn, Mr. and Mrs. Ferrell and family, and Mr. and Mrs. Staples and family, the two young ladies enjoyed a fishing excursion to Elk lake on Saturday afternoon and were fortunate in securing a splendid string of pickerel. Miss Grace car ried off high honors by landing, un assisted, a fifteen-pounder, and Miss Margaret came in second with a fish almost as heavy. George did the rowing, cleaned the fish and fried them for supper. It was a 'mirthful little party which sat down to that fish, fry, and the rapidity with which the big hunks of pickerel were divested of their bony structure and stowed away was amaz ing. There were two of the party, however, who had lost appetite. These were Margaret and Grace, and to their thrilling experience in landing the monsters of the deep and the at tending excitement can alone be at tributed this condition. It stole their appetites away. At about 10 o'clock the party arrived home, bringing 10 pickerel. The biggest part of the string11 fishwere consumed at the lake. Company M, Fall In! All members of old Company M, 14th Minnesota volunteers, are re quested by Col. C. E. Johnson to send their address and the address of any of their comrades known to Lieut. A. A.

Two High School Nines Do Battle at the Fa ir Grounds. The boys from the Monticello high school came over on Saturday with the avowed determination of showing the home students how to play ball and, metaphorically speaking, of wiping them off the diamond, but re turned home in an altogether different spirit, for the little fellows of the Princeton high vanquished them com pletely. The Monticello team is com posed mostly of boys very much heavier than the Princetons, conse quently the home nine, after sizing up the visitors, became a little nervous and expected their finish. But they braced up to their antagonists, made some splendid plays, and came out victors in a score of 8 to 3. The boys feel jubilant over their recent victories and say that, after a little more practice, they will not be afraid to tackle the regular Princeton Baseball club. They are to be com mended for their grit. The game was played at the fair grounds and at tracted a big crowd of enthusiasts. RETURNS FROM PHILIPPINES. Snpt. O'Reilly of the Department of Edu cation Visits Princeton. G. A. O'Reilly arrived in Princeton on Friday from the Philippine Islands and is the guest of his brother-in-law and sisters, Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Skahen and Miss O'Reilly. He was accom panied by his brother Frank, wife and child, who joined him in San Fran cisco, and who are also guests at the Skahen family residence. Mr. O'Reilly holds the highly re sponsible position of superintendent of schools of the city of Manila that is, he is at the head of the government department of education there. He has now been a resident of the islands for seven years, the first two of which he served in the Thirteenth Minnesota volunteers and saw much active ser vice. Mr. O'Reilly'3 association with the educational department has been, marked by continuous ^promotions, and his general popularity was made manifest by the demonstrations given in his honor previous to his leaving Manila for a six months' vacation in the United States. During his stay in America he will, in addition to vis iting friends and relatives, report to Secretary Taft of the war department at Washington upon scholastic condi tions in the islands and call upon President Roosevelt. Mr. O'Reilly is in rugged health and attributes "his splendid condition to continuous athletic exercise, particular care in dietary matters, etc. Frank L. O'Reilly, who accom panied his brother here, also served two years in the Philippines as a member of the First South Dakota volunteers, and upon the mustering out of the regiment located in the life insurance business at San Francisco. It is not his intention to return to the coast, but to locate some where in the middle west. Both brothers were in the recent earthquake at San Francisco, Supt. O'Reilly having landed in that port a few days before the destruction of the eity. Neither received any injury but each lost considerable property, among it being a number of valuable souvenirs collected in the Philip pines. DR. BRIDGMAN TALKS TO PUPILS. Learned President of Hamline University Gives Valuable Advice. Dr. George H. Bridgman, president of Hamline university, gave a half hour's logical and interesting talk to the pupils of the high school this morning upon the progress of educa tion. The doctor interspersed his address with short anecdotes, which rendered it all the more attractive. Robt. C. Dunn, in a few appropri ate words, introduced Dr. Bridgman, who, among other things, said that there were no schools anywhere better than those of Minnesota and that those of Princeton ranked highnot in the size of the institutions, but in the quality. The schools of Minne sota are in splendid financial condi tion, said Preisdent Bridgman, and for this condition you are largely in debted to your fellow townsman, Robt. C. Dunn. He told the students that they did not attend school to be edu cated, but to educate themselves. the art of concentrationto learn how to accomplish in one hour intellectu ally that whicn formerly occupied perhaps three or four times as long. He impressed upon them the necessity of remaining in school until they graduated, saying that the education which did for their fathers was highly insufficient for them. Times have changed, and unless we keep abreast of these times success will not be ours. President Bridgman advised all to take a college course and to do so as soon as possible after gradua tionnot to delay a year or two until they had become rusty. Anyone can obtain a college education who so de sires, even should their means be lim ited. Many are those who have gone through college and had not a cent to start with. The young man of deter mination will at all times find those who are willing to assist him in se curing a college education. A col lege education fits you to combat with the world, and fitness is highly neces sary. There are plenty of dollar-a day men, but the ten-dollar-a-day men are scarce. The colleges of Minnesota are splen did institutions. One is perhaps as good as another, at least they all do good work, they all turn out more or less men who distinguish themselves. Go to college by all means, and go now. Must Have His Weekly. Tackle the average farmer on the subject of national, state or local politics and you will find him much better posted than the average city man. You will find that he is always ready to give a reason for his politi cal beliefs. He is not the sort of man that waits for some politician to tell him what way he should vote. He reads, ponders and does a "heap of thinking." He may subscribe for an agricul tural paper, but he cannot get from that the political pabulum he hankers for. He must have his political weekly, his newspaper, which he dili gently reads and digests, and he wants the best that there is in this line.Kansas City Weekly Star. Only Trifling. "Oui, madam is ill, but ze doctor haf pronounced it something very triing, very small,"said the French maid to an inquiring friend. "Oh, I am so relieved, for I was really anxious about her," replied the friend. "What does the doctor say the trouble is?" "Let me recall. It was something very leetle," answered the French maid. "Oh, I have it now! Ze doctor says.zat madam has ze smallpox." Philadelphia Ledger. MINNESOTA HISTORICAL CIETY, YOLUME XXX.

After the ceremony a dainty repast was served and during the evening Miss Smith sang several appropriate selections. The parlor was prettily decorated with cut flowers and ferns. About sixty guests were present to witness the ceremony. The bride is a very estimable young lady of Isanti county, while the groom is one of Speneer Brook's pros perous farmers. Mr. and Mrs. Madine begun house keeping at once on their farm south of Spencer Brook. The young people have a host of friends who join in wishing them a long and prosperous married life. FARMERS' TELEPHONE COMPAXY. Enthusiastic Meeting: Held at Bons Brook on Thursday Evening Last. A meeting of 'phone enthusiasts held in school house No. 2, Bogus Brook, last Thursday evening was encourag ingly successful.
