Nicaragua cablegrams convey the
intelligence that Madriz has been de
posed and Estrada proclaimed presi

being succeeded by another.
To secure a reputation it is not ab
solutely necessary to be either a
moral man or a millionaire. Merely
let the public get an inkling that you
are a grafter and a reputation will
attach itself immediately.
A newspaper scribbler is of opinion
that old Nick is responsible for the
cigarette habit which Mrs. Longworth
is alleged to have acquired. Why
not blame young Nick, with whom she
is more closely associated?
It is customary for a mother to
address the baby of the family as
"My little lamb" while the oldest son

Senator Clapp is over in Wisconsin

that Mr. La Follette did not select
that eloquent campaign orator, Hon.
Samuel Van Sant, for this purpose.
Samuel is a marvelous persuader.
We are told that in the new lan

Another blow has been dealt Mr.
Bryan. Editor Metcalf of the Com
monwealth, whom Mr. Bryan induced
to run for the nomination of United
States senator from Nebraska at the
democratic primaries, has been de
feated by Gilbert M. Hitchcock of
John J. Ryder, former state senator
from Polk county and prior to that a
well known St Paul newspaper re

publican ticket for secretary of state
of Nebraska. We hope Mr. Ryder
will be successful at the polls with a
ma]ority expressed in five figures.
Mr. Roosevelt, who is now on his
western trip, said at Buffalo, N. Y.:
I feel that it is just a little more of

doubt that Theodore will make good,
for he has proven himself a mighty
A jury in New Orleans acquitted
Mamie McLaughlin, an orphan 18
years of age, who killed a black
guardly saloonkeeper named Hugh
Smith. The girl did not deny com
mitting the deed but said that Smith
had betrayed her and she was in con
sequence impelled to the act. It took
the jury but a few minutes to find her
not guilty. Here is a case where the
jury was justified in resorting to the
"unwritten law."
Japan has gobbled up Korea and it
is therefore no longer an independent
kingdom. The annexation has been
quietly effected but the great powers
gave their consent to the proceedings
months ago. Russia is naturally a
trifle chagrined and Korea is opposed
to the annexation, but that is inconse
quential. Under the direct rule of
Japan the Hermit kingdom will be
materially benefited. Japan is a
progressive, modernized nation while
Korea is many laps behind, but
henceforth it will be interesting to
note its rapid strides.
Henry Waterson says in the Louis

We have heard of two or three rep

cover this legislative district it is rep

which naturally debars men of

We know of one candidate who will
not expend half of the minimum
amount mentioned by the Star-News
to go to the legislature. No candi
date of moderate means can afford to
squander $1,000 to obtain a seat in
the legislature unless he expects to
barter his vote as a law-maker and
be known as a "gray wolf." We do
not believe that the people of this
legislative district want to be repre
sented by legislators of that brand.
A candidate whose only recommenda

right kind of a man to send to the

He stands on his own ground in the

In the big 52nd legislative district
which is composed of the counties of
Carlton, Aitkin, Itasca, Cass and
Koochiching, there are half a dozen
candidates who have filed for the re
publican nomination for representa

elected, and we sincerely hope Charles
H. Warner of Aitkin will be one of
the two. There is no man in the five
counties better equipped than Mr.
Warner to represent that great district
in the legislature. He understands
the needs of northern Minnesota and
he has the ability to express his views
and the courage to maintain them'.
This is the year when northern Min
nesota should be represented in the
legislature by its ablest men.
Lett er From W Chase
The Union is in receipt of a letter
from W. P. Chase dated Beachwood,
Maine, August 24, and takes the fol
lowing excerpts therefrom:
"We break camp next Tuesday after
a very cool, delightful summer on the
beach. We can hardly realize we
have had any summer for we have
had to keep fire in the grate a great
deal of the time, especially evenings.
All the fish,* including clams, lob
sters, etc., we could eat was readily
obtainable, as well as all sorts of
berries. How some of my Princeton
friends would like to pull out forty
or fifty fine fish in a couple of hours.
I see by the i on you have had
some dry, hot weather out in Minne
sota. Here we had almost too much
rain early in June, but it has been all
right since and crops are good, hay
especially so. But the tourist crop
is the biggest of all in this country.
Best regards from myself and wife to
our Princeton friends. Very truly
yours, W. P. Chase."

purposes why not let the surplus

Reality Knocks the Glamour Oft
In theory the American people are
land crazy. But when it comes down
to the grim reality of moving onto
the soil they hesitate. When the
Standing Rock reservation was opened
thousands of lawyers, doctors and
business men flocked to the tlrawirig,
until there were about eight appli
cants to every home. But those
lucky enough to get tickets calling for
land defaulted until about two thirds
of the land still remains unclaimed.
Pioneering looks good from a city
office if you do not go into details.
But when a man used to luxury
bumps up against the reality it
knocks the glamour off.Cloquet
Direct and Indirect Taxation.
The value of the direct state tax is
two-fold: It keeps the state interested
in local assessments and it keeps the
individual taxpayer interested in
what is done with the state's money.
If there is no state ta* the state" loses

to induce too-liberal officials to lower
their assessments. If there is- "no
direct state tax the individual tax
payer, paying nothing directly into
the state treasury, loses his interest
in state economy. He forgets of
course that even though indirect tax
ation provides all the state's money,
the consumer pays it just the same
through the rates he pays to railroads
and other corporations upon which
the indirect taxes are levied.Duluth
I is the Governor's Sworn Duty.
There seems to be a good deal of
dodging about the enforcement of law
in Minnesota. The governor on be
ing appealed to in regard to the
violation of liquor and other laws
refers the matter to the attorney gen
eral. The attorney general shifts the
responsibility on to the sheriff. The
sheriffs will no doubt blow up the
constables. Meanwhile the law is
disregarded. By the way, who is
responsible when the law is openly
and flagrantly violated on the state
capitol grounds?Northfield News.
Inefficient Legislators Not Wanted.
There has been no campaign in re
cent years in this state in which there
were so many indications of a deter
mination on the part of the people to
be well represented in the legislature.
The service of men who have been
faithful to the people is being recog
nized and rewarded. Inefficient repre
sentatives are being sent to the right
about, and men of parts and integrity
are selected for their places. The
people of every legislative district
who want to make their influence felt
should be in line. The best men are
needed at the state capitol to protect
the public interests and see that the
plain people get a square deal.
