Delegate Commissions Feature
of Executive Department.
Thousands of Citizens Made Happy by
Receipt of Beautifully Scrolled
St. Paul, Nov. 14.It is hardly pos
sible that you have been overlooked
in the gratuitous distribution of dele
gate commissions which are a feature
of the state executive department
these daysI refer to those sheets of
executive parchment, with the great
seal of the state attached, and bear
ing your name and that of his excel
lency's, beautifully scrolled together,
with the function at which you are to
represent the great state of Minne
sotabut if you have not do not worry.
The last time I looked in at the exec
utive quarters there were more
parchment sheets and to spare Secre
tary of State Julius H. Schmahl had
replenished his rapidly diminishing
supply of gold seals and withm easy
call of the commission mill sat a
young ladv who could duplicate the,
executive signature at the rate of fifty
"sigs" a minute if the occasion de
manded it and defy criticism as to
detection between the original and the
copy at that. As to the functions
well, Secretary Ralph Wheelock was
opening inyitations to send Minnesota
representatives to "get-back-to-the
farm" conventions and what not at
the rate of four a day. And when they
failed he had other doings up his
sleevefire protection congresses,
conservation gatherings and other get
together things. That any one has
been overlooked surprises me, but, as
I said, do not worry just wait they
will come.

This is a rather coarse way of
speaking of something that has grown
apace with no less than four adminis
trations and which had its inception
during the period when Dave Clough
was in command, but as a slight rec
ompense for the genius that invented
the game I take off my hat to him
He is sure entitled to a niche, for he
builded well in providing a way for
more than one hard pressed official to
lull rebellion. As history records it,
and I will have to admit that history
in this case is rather vague, the gen
eral distribution of gold seal dec
orated commissions, with the big fel
low's signature attached, had it- first
trial during the Dave Clough admin
istration, but it was the Democratic
"Kitchen Cabinet" that brought the
scheme to a state of perfection, with
the present administration a close sec
ond. The "cabinet" ground out com
missions at every excuse and lowly
was the shack whose walls were not
decorated with the illuminated bits of
paper, or poor the voter who could
not produce something bearing the
name of the Immortal Johnson, and in
his own handwriting at that Gov
ernor Eberhart distributed over five
thousand commissions bearing his "sig
nature" for the conservation congress
of a year or more ago, with his latest
innovation, the Fire Prevention con
gress, held last week in St Paul, hard
pressing it for place. And both repre
sent money well spent, for they
brought into being two propositions
of merit, and in the case of the con
servation congress an appreciation
that figured strongly in the big vote
which th* Mankato man piled up
against his rival And in addition,
just think of the advertising.
Poohoocd as a joke by his enemies,
but taken so seriously by one St. Paul
German that he mistook the delegate
commission with the governor's signa
ture sent him as an appointment to a
janitorship at the state capitol, Gov
ernor Eberhart's fire prevention con
gress, pulled off in St. Paul last week,
was one of the hits of the year. In
answer to nearly 5,000 invitations sent
out, and each "signed" by the execu
tive, over 600 interested voters from
over the state made answer and out
of it all came an organization of inter
est and profit to the state. True, the
politicians were in evidence and many
Democrats were on hand to take
notes, but there were enough present
to evidence genuine interest in the
subject and they went away feeling
that they had profited, even if the
cost came out of their own pockets.
What the next excuse for the official
signature will be I do not know, but
there is one thing certain, no harm
will come of it.

No one down here seems to know
what is back of the move, but rumors
have been rife the past week con
necting Aivah Eastman, the well
known St. Cloud publisher, with the
Republican nomination for governor.
His candidacy was discussed by sev
eral in attendance at the fire congress
and later it crept into the gossip at
the state capitol. Friends who have
seen him since, however, say he re
gards the whole thing as a joke, also
the talk ot his making the race for
congressman at large.

oe amiss to point out the activity i
certain circles in behalf of Cyrus Nor
thrup, late president of the university.
And they say that the old man is not
averse to the honor. As explained by
one partisan the scheme is in the in
terest of Hennepin county alone, as
ultimately the East Side of that dis
trict will be attached to a new dis
trict to be created, but another, more
bolder, declares that it is an admin
istration frameup, with "Prexy" as the
goat. It remains to be seen, however,
if President Northrup will permit him
self to .be a goat.

G. H. Mattson of Rosseau, whose
name has been connected with the
Btate secretaryship for the past four
years, is due to be a bona fide candi
date for the place this time if the
statement of friends who were in St
Paul last week count for anything. A
Rosseau county paper has already
nailed hi*r flag to its masthead and
others are being solicited for support.
Mr. Mattson, who was a member of
the last legislature, was a delegate to
the Eberhart fire prevention congress
last week, but he could not be'induced
to talk for publication. He said,
though, that it would be very likely
that he would be in the game this

Uneasy lies the head that wears a
crown, as Governor Eberhart will at
test to by reason of spirited attacks
from papers and individuals located in
Stillwater and Red Wing, where two
companies of the national guard be
longing to the First regiment were,
upon his orders, transferred to the
Third regiment. And the feature of it
all was that others pulled the transfer
off and he did not know of the proba
ble farreacning effects until the storm
broke. But you can bet that they are
doing some explaining now The
transfer of the two companies, as ex
plained by the Twin City gold lace
decorated heads, was in the interest
of the service and the governor, on
these representations, signed the or
der. The two companies, however, say
they were never consulted and ever
since much in the way of hot things
have been hurled at his excellency.
The company at Red Wing has threat
ened to disband the one at Stillwater
is of the same mind and the end is
not yet.

Where the money will come from is
not stated, but persons close in say
that the progressive leaders in the
state are preparing to back a weekly
paper in the interest of the progres
sive movement. If it materializes the
place of publication will be Minneapo
lis. That city is just now the chief
home of the La Follette movement, as
far as Minnesota is concerned, and the
promoters say it is the proper place
for the location of a paper devoted to
the progressive cause. In St. Paul the
La Follette candidacy has received lit
tle encouragement.

Two members of the railroad and

Judge Mills are the retiring members
and from all accounts they will make
an effort to succeed themselves. There

quist making a try at the job of con
gressman from the Fourth district,
but the Chisago county man says he
has no such aspirations. He is con
tent with his present position.

And while on this subject of con
gressman I might state that all signs
point to trouble for C. Steven of
St. Paul, who represents the Fourth
district in Washington. The rumors
of a rival have been persistent of late
and Congressman Stevens' evident
knowledge of the fact is shown in
some decided activity on his part. He
is making strenuous efforts looking to
the enlargement of Fort Snelling and
otherwise strengthening himself with
the voters

The presence of so many Democrats
at the fire prevention congress held
in St. Paul last week gave rise to the
talk that an important side confer
ence was on, but such was denied by
the leaders. Some of them did confer
with National Committeeman F. B.
Lynch and I am told that conditions
over the state were discussed, but be
yond this nothing else was done. The
Eberhart machine would like to have
some advance information on the pos
sible Democratic nominee for gov
ernor, but they are likely to be dis
appointed. I have the word of Mr.
Lynch that no one has been consid
ered as yet, but the right man will be
trotted out at the right time. And in
the words of Mr. Lynch, "he will be

Quoting H. A. Rider of the game and
fish commission there are nearly 15,-
000 men in the Northern woods at the
present time hunting big game. That
many licenses have been issued and
he judges that they are all being used.
One of the close corporations of the
state is the game and fish commission.
It meets behind closed doors, gives
out about what information suits it
and hides behind a collection of laws
and rules that are anything but equi
table. And as to the money is spends,
well, some of the La Follette followers
are the best judges. Senator La Fol
lette leapt from obscurity to fame
through the machinations of a similar
institution and there are those who do
say that politics and personal ambi

Whether In Working or Thinking It
Helps on to Success.
Working or thinking without system
enfeebles the mind and leaves the
mental faculties in a clogged condi
tion, so that they do not work sharply.
The mind must be kept clear and clean
for the present problem, so that it
may seize and grasp with all its might
the thing it is attempting to accom
There is only one best way to learn
how to act. That way is the way of
system. Systematize your thoughts,
your energies, your abilities. Learn
early in life to do this, and it will
prove the master habit that wins suc
Systemless men are always surprised
that the heads of great enterprises
can find so much time for social life,
for hobbies, for travel. They cannot
understand it at all. They do not
realize that a man of great organizing
ability, with a splendid system, can
do more effective business in a single
hour at his office than a systemless
man can accomplish in twelve. It is
not the number of hours, but the ef
fectiveness of the system, that tells.
One of the advantages of a college
course is that it trains the mind to
work by system. Whether he likes to
or not, the student is forced to con
centrate his mind when the time
comes, no matter what his mood or
how he feels. Four years of training
in this should put the mind into work
ing order. It should tune the intellect
so that all the strings will be in
harmony. A good college education
should train the mind to think con
cisely, deeply, effectively at will.

There's Danger Afoot When Captive
Wild Beasts "Go Bad."
What those who have charge of wild
animals in captivity, and especially
trainers, dread most among the large
beasts is that inexplicable change of
temperament on the part of the ani
mal known in the parlance of the me
nagerie as "going bad."
Lions are likely to^go bad about the
tenth year of life tigers, two or three
years earlier. The male tiger is the
dread of the profession when he
reaches this condition, because he is
more likely to go into a frenzy without
warning, and once gone bad nothing
will satisfy him but murder.
He will leap for any man within
reach, and when once his teeth are on
the bone nothing but fire will make
him relinquish it, and not always that.
This "going bad" may come in the
nature of a sudden attack or it may
develop slowly and be counteracted if
taken in time. An old trainer can
usually detect the symptoms of this
curious ailment. It seems to be in
the nature of a disease, and other ani
mals recognize it and shun the affect
ed one.
When its progress is apparent the
danger is not great. All that is re
quired then is a level head and the
wisdom to refrain from further inter
ference with the animal.
Sometimes this bad temper will last
but a short time, and again it will be
come the permanent condition of the
animal. In that case he is sent to the
lonely cage to spend the rest of his
life in comparative obscurity, dis
turbed merely by the passing crowd
and his daily meals.Pearson's Week
Respect of Dead Royalty.
Dead royalty was treated with scant
respect at Holyrood a century ago. C.
K. Sharpe, the friend of Scott, writing
to Robert Chambers in 1825, recounted
some of his experiences during his
wanderings among the tombs Holy

of the royal bodies shown in the chapel
of Holyrood Houseone entire, saving
the hand. In later times I paid
a visit to the chapel after the royal
vault had been closed. 'Oh, man,'
