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
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
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
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.
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
'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
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
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
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.

senior class of the Northwestern
Training School for Nurses will be

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

the profession which may be required
of them.
A program of more than ordinary
attractiveness has been arranged for
the commencement exercises, which

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
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.

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

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.
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
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.

Tackle the average farmer on the
subject of national, state or local

better posted than the average city

that waits for some politician to tell
him what way he should vote. He
