GORDON AND HIS PLATFORM
Said County Option Will Not Figure
Strongly in His Declaration
St. Paul, Oct. 31.With Lieutenant
Governor S. Y. Gordon of Browns Val
ley due to announce his candidacy for
the Republican nomination for gov
ernor the first of the year and Adolph
O. Eberhart ready these many days to
make a second try for his present job,
state capitol politicians are now busy
weighing the chances of each and fig
uring out what they think will be the
result. This job of picking a winner,
however, only covers the nomination
Few so far have had the temerity to
extend their prophesies beyond that
State capitol king makers and their
followers over the state can be di
vided into three classesthose who
look upon Governor Eberhart as sure
to succeed himself, quite a few who
are for any old thing as long as it
does not interfere with their own am
bitions, and those who seriously be
lieve that the Browns Valley man has
a chance. The first is a decided ma
jority, the second every administra
tion and aspirant has to contend ith
and the thirdwell, it is in the mi
nority. That the majority of these
statehouse king makers and politi
cians can only figure out Eberhart is
not to be wondered at.
Talking the other day with one of
the "old practical school" boys and one
of those who can see nothing but the
nomination and election of Governor
Eberhart, about the apparent feeling
of discontent among the voters, he
said: "Rot, the merest rot, and you
know it. Mimd you I am not over
looking this great army of voters you
speak of, or the present day tendency
to msurge and kick against the ins,
but Eberhart will prevail at the con
vention, and that is all there is to it
The people overlook the conventions
and they forget their grievances when
the election rolls around. I know
there have been exceptions, but they
are not the rule
But to get back to the newest guber
natorial entry and whose announce
ment the first of the year is expected
to start the fur flying The Browns
Valley man, according to his adroitly
worded letter, has selected former
State Senator Ole Canestorp of Elbow
Lake, one of the most prominent Nor
wegians in the Northwest, as his me
dium of publicity, and there are those
who think that he has builded well
It will come near placing the entire
Seventh district at his back. As to
his platfoim, that is not known as
yet, but I get it that, while county
option may not figure strongly in his
list of principles, brewery ownership
of saloons will Sam never could be
counted as an out an out county op
tionist. His position in the last state
convention placed him in that camp,
but he never tore his shirt over it. He
"was discreetly silent
Those in charge of the state's finan
cial department are much exercised
over a threatened reduction in
iron ore carrying rates, which, accord
ing to State Auditor Iverson, may re
duce next year's revenues from $250,-
000 to $400,000 The cut, however,
has been promised and is due early in
December. What may be one man's
poison, however, may be another
man's meat, and the independent mine
owners, who have been paying tribute
to the steel corporation for years, are
rejoicing in consequence The state
railway commission was petitioned
more than once to assist in a reduc
tion of this rate, but refused because
of its effect on the state revenues.

President Taft has come and gone,
and by this time is enjoying the hos
pitality of the South The Twin Cit
ies and several towns in the Second
and Third districts had him as a
guest for a brief two days, and his
reception was cordial. At every stop
the patriotism and the loyalty of the
townspeople were appealed to by those
in charge of the tour, and they re
sponded to a man. But as to the im
pression left by the president's visit,
the effect of his utterances on those
who differ with him and the strength
ening of his chances in the Northwest
for 1912, I can say little. Highly col
ored stories and carefully picked
headlines told of much good done in
the Northwest, but I doubt their ac
curacy. They do not agree with other
stories that I have since heard. There
is no use of getting away from the
factMr. Taft is not a favorite in the
Northwest. He may land the nomina
tion, but leading Democrats are will
ing to wager their good money that
they will furnish his successor.
Buyers of barley will please take
notice. The state railway and ware
house commission has just delivered
itself of an opinion to the effect that
forty-eight pounds of barley consti
tutes a bushel, and not fifty pounds,
as has been the custom in some dis-
tricts. Users of the latter standanfi,
It says, are liable to prosecution.
State Auditor Iverson has put his
foot down on all bills filed by state
officials and employes for the use of
their own automobiles in state work
in excess of 5 cents a mile. And then
its use must be shown to have been
necessary in the way of a money or
time saver. He insists on the use of
the railroad wherever possible in trav
eling for the state. One $75 a month
clerk employed by the state highway
commission, and also the owenr of an
automobile, turned in a bill for 1,080
miles which he traveled, at 10 cents a
mile. It was not allowed.

Paul last week to join President Taft's
train and while waiting saw a number
of visitors, among them Prank B. Kel

teeman Senator Nelson was as ret
icent as of old regarding his candi
dacy for another term and adroitly

The Red Wing Eagle, in a recent
issue, declares that the only thing
that can save Governor Eberhart from
defeat is R. Dunn of Princeton as
his running mate This is on the as
sumption that Mr. Gordon will make
good his announced intention of get
ting into the gubernatorial fight. The
Eagle declares that Mr Eberhart's
administration is lamentably -weak
and that Dunn, with his thousands of
friends, is needed to boost him back

The state tax commission has added
?11,000,000 to the assessment of the
steel properties on the iron range

one of the first to insist that the iron
properties be given a substantial boost
and the process has been going on
ever since Not a year has passed
that there has not been an increase
