Annual Meeting of Northern De
velopment Association.
Program This Year Made Up With a
View of Eliminating Everything of
an Ax Grinding Nature.
(Special Correspondence
St. Paul, Dec. 5."On to St. Cloud"
is the slogan this week and it is ex
pected that many will answer the call.
The annual meeting of the Northern
Development association is the occa
sion and it is a safe bet that the king
makers and those politically inter
ested will be there in force. The ex
odus from the capitol alone promises
to he heavy and will not he all one
sided either. Neither Governor Eber
nart nor his promised rival, S. Y. Gor
don of Browns Valley, will be present,
but their boosters will be there. That
much is promised. Launched two
years ago in the interest of the up
state counties the Northern Develop
ment association took on a standing
that compelled attention and wrung
from a reluctant legislature many
things that the northern section was
justly entitled to, but I am afraid for
its future. Entirely too many individ
uals with an ax to grind have crept
into its ranks and they, aided by the
politicians, are bringing the whole
thing a line of advertising that is un
desirable. It was a remark made at
the annual meeting of this organiza
tion a yeir ago that placed Governor
Eberhart on the spit in the matter of
a promised special session of the leg
islature and which he has since de
nied. This year he did not care to
take another chance and declined an
invitation to attend on the ground of
more pressing business
*I* *i*
That the politicians are trying to
use the association for their own self
ish ends has not been lost upon the
promoters and the program this year
has been carefully selected with a
view of eliminating everything of an
ax grinding nature. Courtesy com
pelled an invitation to the governor,
but I have it on authority that there
was more or less relief when it was
declined Even Lieutenant Governor
S. Gordon was among the favored
ones, but his presence in an official
way could not be countenanced be
cause of his promised candicacy for
the governorship Care was exercised
throughout in the preparation of the
program and to the credit of the as
sociation it can be said that it is
among the best yet. All this, how
ever, will not prevent the presence of
the politicians and it is their blight
that worries those honestly interested
in the work of the association. As
they say, however, it cannot be helped,
and so what are you going to do
about it

The death of George Welsh, state
immigration commissioner, releases
another fat plum and already those
with a hankering to serve the state at
so much per are clamoring for recog
nition The position pays $3,000 a
Tear and is among the nicest things in
the gift of the administration. With
the small annual appropriation at his
command the former commissioner
^brought the department up to a high
standard and Governor Eberhart, who,
with the immigration board, will aid
tn picking a successor, says he wants
a man fully Mr Welsh's equal It is
hardly likely that a new man will be
named much before the first of the
J. .J. *J
From row on owners of vehicles,
whether motor propelled or otherwise,
-will have to carry a light on the rear
and the makers of lanterns are ex
pected to wax fat in consequence The
new idea was incorporated in the au
tomobile and vehicle license law,
which became effective Dec 1, and
the wonder is how the farmer mem
bers of the legislature let this unique
provision get by them If interpreted
literally even baby carriages are inand
J. B. Galernault of Aitkin, former
state bank superintendent, is receiv
ing some favor^Js mention as a Dem
ocratic gubernatorial possibility, but
because of his upstate residence it is
hardly likely thai the leaders will con
sider him seriously. He was regarded
as among the strongest of the late
Governor Johnson's official family and
there was genuine regret when a
change of political fortunes compelled
his retirement as state bank superin
tendent. That residence, religion, or
even nationality should interfere with
any man's honest political ambitions
is to be regretted, but it does, and no
one knows this better than the asarrangement
pirant himself.

This is an age of big things and the
-tatement that it costs the great state
Minnesota nearly $45,000 a day to
maintain its credit probably does not
surprise you, but lest you forget it,
and case you are interested, I want
io inform you that such is a fact. And
this amount is required every day in
the year. By the month the sum to
tals $1,363,732 43, and for a year $1G-
364,789.21. We-k'v it sums up $314,-
..t^p^'^ iiA^u&M
707.48. These several amounts, deai
reader, Is what State Treasurer Wal
ter J. Smith drew his check for dur
ing the year ending last July and h
figures on paying out a like amount
the next twelve months. Last year
his predecessor distributed of the peo
pie's money a trifle over $13,000,000
and the year before that something
like $12,000,000. Every cent of it went
to pay the running expenses of th
state and it was a'll legally authorized,
too. So much for this department!
so much for that department, and st
on reads the ponderous ledgers in
State Auditor Iverson's department,
and Mr Smith and his predecessors
drew their checks as the approved
vouchers and warrants came to them
All the above information, and then
some, is contained in the annual state
ment of State Treasurer Smith, just
out, and which is being distributed
over the state. The book, a cold and
formal looking volume, could hardly
be counted among the best sellers,
but it contains much that is interest
ing to the taxpayers of the state at
least and when tackled by the mathe
matician offers considerable in the
way of surprises For instance, the
running expenses of the state have in
creased $3,000,000 in the last two
years and in nine years the total in
crease has been close to $8,000,000.
The average increase for each year of
that period has been about $1,200,000.
Last year the state spent nearly $900,-
000 more than it took in, but this ex
cess wag taken care of by a handsome
balance from the year previous.
Third gubernatorial candidate talk
has cast the spotlight on State Auditor
Iverson and there is uneasiness in the
ranks of the others in consequence.
As I once pointed out in this column
Mr. Iverson, bar none, has the best po
litical organization in the state and
the man tnat ever has him for a com
petitor will have to go some. And it
is not pap controlled either. It is the
work of over fifteen years of active
official life and it responds when
called upon. That Mr. Iverson, how
ever, is going to pass up his present
berth for an uncertainty is doubtful,
and more so in light of the fact that
he smiles when it is mentioned. That
the Fillmore county man will have to
be reckoned with some of these days
is admitted.
J. 4. .j.
Time brings many changes and one
of the most prominent is the vacation
of the North Dakota political contin
gent of the Merchants hotel in St.
Paul and its new residence at the
West hotel in Minneapolis. Alex Mc
Kenzie dropped his grip in the latter
city several months ago and ever
since the West has been North Da
kota headquarters. In days gone by
no one aspired to office in North Da
kota without first visiting the big fel
lows who held forth at the Merchants
hotel. There they held forth, and it
was there that much of North Dako
ta's early political history was written.
*s* $-
Governor Eberhart may incorporate
into his next message to the legisla
ture a demand for a law that will give
the state control of get-rich-quick cor
porations. The only way of reaching
them now is when fraud is shown,
and even then conviction is often im
possible. In the past three years his
excellency has been appealed to on
more than one occasion for relief from
these concerns, but has been unable
to do anything. Minneapolis is a hot
bed of these corporations and they
extend from mining schemes to co
operative farming.
J* *r
Representative S. N Lee of RoIIag
is one of those who sides with the
governor in his stand on the much dis
cussed extra session of the legislature
and he has written the executive con
gratulating him on the position taken.
The governor's ideas regarding an in
crease in the railroad gross earnings
tax also appeal to him, for as far as his
observation goes, he says, the demand
comes only from demagogues and
bread and butter politicians. It was
the late Joel Heatwole, I believe, who
said, "Never write, see your man."
And it is of note that Joel did not
often put his thoughts on paper.
To the wise ones it looks pretty
much as if county option and and a
few of the other isms that have graced
the platforms of either one or theCaroline
other parties for the past five years
would be among the missing next
year. It is never heard of down here
Democracy especially looks upon
it as one ot the things to be forgotten
Sam Gordon's brewery owned saloon
slogan threatens to take its place, but
how far it will get is not known at
this time. It has many, and some in
fluential backers, however
J* *$*
Governor Eberhart is traveling east
with the governors' special this week
and the state capitol will not see him
for some days. is extolling the
beauties of Minnesota and dwelling on
its wealth of farming and manufac
turing resources. For inspiration he
has as company a portion of a car
given over to some of the products for
which the North Star state is famous,
hut according to one who aided in the
of the exhibit it should
make his excellency ashamed every
time he looked at it. All told the ex
hibit is reported to have cost about
$300, and, considering the occasion, is
about the poorest thing in its line ever
attempted by the state.

S. Y. Gordon and his smile have not
been seen in St. Paul or at the state
capitol for a week and the wise ones
are wondering. They are keeping a
close eye on his movements.
