EYES ON Fate of Leading Politicians De pends on Outcome, MEANS MUCH TO DEMOCRATS Because of Republican Split Minority Will Be Able to Dictate Terms on Ail Legislation. (Special Correspondence.) St. Paul, May 28.Politically speak ing all eyes are centered on the Cap itol City these days, and properly so. Next week the legislature will meet in extraordinary session and on its de liberations and findings depends much. More than one crowned head is put ting in sleepless nights awaiting the outcome. The whole thing means one of three things, the wiping out of Gov ernor Eberhart and the elevation of a rival to the command of the ship of state, the elimination of the Repub lican party for a period of years, or the complete supremacy of those now in power. N one is certain what will happen and it is impossible to get a bet on the probable outcome. Every body for himself and the devil take the hindmost seems to be the accepted opinion. What prompted the governor to call the legislature together what was his motive, you ask? says it was in answer to the general demand for a statewide primary law and which found expression in the late presiden tial delegate nominating convention held in Minneapolis. Hi enemies say it was because he was afraid of the cars. knew he was gone and well, the flip of a penny has solved the fate of nations as well as individu als. was just as well off one way as the other. All this, however, is only gossip and while some may weigh his past actions on requests for spe cial sessions of the house and senate against his sudden late call for the assembling of the two bodies, yet charity demands that he be given credit for doing what he believed was right and what he thought the people wanted. In all four special sessions of the legislature ha\e been held since Minnesota became a state and the rec ords show that ail were failures. Gov ernor Eberhart has seen fit to issue the call for the fifth and one must at least give him credit for taking a chance. Hi official head depends on the outcome, and, fellows, that is sure some gamble. J* With a special session of the legis lature a certaintyit will convene at high noon, June 4the attention of the king makers is now directed at the Democratic minority in the two houses, for if the best informed have it right the unwashed of the two bodies hold the future of the Repub lican party in the hollow of their hand. Governor Eberhart says he is calling the legislature together to enact a de manded statewide primary and the passage of such an act, the wise ones say, depends upon the action of the minority. This is on the assumption that the Republican majority will be badly split and there is nothing to show that it will be any different than it was at the last regular session. If the Democrats play good ball they can say whether there will be a pri mary law or not and if such a law is passed they can dictate the terms. There are better than thirty of the un washed in the house, with a substan tial number in the senate. Showing the feeling among the Democrats, one of the number who was in St. Paul last week following the call for the special session, declared that if a pri mary law did pass it would be one wholly satisfactory to the Democrats. And he was a leader in the last house, too. He was strong enough to compel the acceptance of a bill providing for the popular election of United States senators, and without amendment at that. The near approach of the elec tion, in which a majority of the mem bers will undoubtedly participate, the fact that the attention of nearly 500,- 000 voters will be centered on their actions and the party's future, you probably will say, should guide the majority and compel a united front, but the general fear is that it will not. Personal ambition is the menace. 5* $- In v, riting about things political one cannot get away from this special session stuff. It has everything shoved off the boards. One thing bothering quite a few is how the members of the two bodies are going to exist. There will be no pay day this time. The best they can get is mileage. The members cannot vote themselves any reimbursement what ever. To some this means a short session to others the introduction of bills and calls for investigations cal culated to bring the needed beef steaks. Both represent the views of a few who never see good im anything, yet at the same time it offers a prob lem worthy of solution at once. A repetition should not be permitted. Because of the whim of a few nearly 200 men will be torn away from their business next week, made to come to St. Paul, pay their own expenses and work for the state. It is a public duty perhaps, but at the are resenting it. WM^THE PKCtfCETOItf UNION: THUBSDAT, MAY 30,1912. same time many The one man perhaps worst hi by the prospective passage of a primary law and a reapportionment act, which will be the two principal thing's for the coming legislature to consider, is Alva Eastman of St. Cloud, who has been generally picked as the Repub lican nominee for congressman at large. A statewide primary means opposition and a reapportionment of the state the wiping out of the office he aspires to. He is hit coming and going. Mr. Eastman, however, can console himself with the knowledge that he has company. Two weeks ago it was a happy family that held forth at the state capitol. Every renomina tion had a cinch. With a primary law in sight it is different now. If such prevails James A. Manahan, a La Fol lette follower and an aggressive pro gressive, will go after Attorney Gen eral L. A. Smith's scalp George Lof tus, he of Shippers and Receivers' as sociation fame, will oppose either Judge Mills or Charles Elmquist of the railroad and warehouse commis sion, and Peter Schwarg of Dodge Center is likely to make another try at the state treasurership. Secretary of State Schmahl may also have oppo sition. Inasmuch as publicity is one of the features of the average primary law the incumbents, have the best of it. L. C. Spooner, the Morris candidate for governor, says he wants to brand as a falsehood the story now in circu lation that he is going to get out of the gubernatorial race and get into the race for congressman. Mr. Spoon er moved his headquarters from Min neapolis to St. Paul last week and one of his first official acts was to make known the fact that he was in the gubernatorial game to stay. "If this keeps on," said Mr. Spooner, "there will be some blood letting. I think I know where this congressional story started." W. E. Lee, the third Repub lican gubernatorial candidate, con tinues to direct his campaign from Minneapolis, but the report is that he will move to the Merchants hotel in St. Paul as soon as the legislature convenes. S. It may not come now, but Minneso ta is due to have a law regulating "get rich quick" corporations operat ing within its midst and when it does happen the voters can thank Secre tary of State Schmahl for its enact ment. As the result of letters re ceived by him from numerous parties who have been fleeced by such con cerns he has brought about the inves tigation of one company, with Min nesota offices in Minneapolis, with re sults anything but to its credit. Mr. Schmahl proposes a "Blue Sky" law similar to the one now in force in Kansas, which compels state supervi sion of all investment concerns operat ing within its midst, and the showing made by the secretary of state has so impressed Governor Eberhart that he may incorporate a demand for such a law in his message to the coming session of the legislature. The state bank examiner has investigated one company, with its home offices in a Southern city, and though the investi gation was made two months ago it still continues to operate in the state. United States Senator Knute Nel son's Washington job now has the spotlight and the chances are that the old warrior will have several rivals when he again seeks a return. James Peterson of Minneapolis has an nounced that he is a candidate for the place and word comes from Washing ton ..that Congressman Lindbergh of the Sixth district has thrown his hat into the ring. Neither has any knowl edge as to whether Mr. Nelson will make another try or not, but the chances are that he will. The present state administration has advices to the effect that he will ask for a return ticket. The selection of a United States senator this time will be by popular ballot and this fact has in fluenced Congressman Lindbergh and James Peterson in their determina tion. Peterson gained fame in his debate with former Governor John Lind during the Dunn-Collins fight and Congressman Lindbergh has been such an energetic progressive that even Washington was compelled to give attention to his proposition to investigate the money trust. The bets down this way are two to one on Knute Nelson. i. Jt, .'a t* The Minnesota Anti-Saloon league is making desperate efforts to break into the campaign on its old aggres sive basis and last week addressed letters to the several gubernatorial candidates requesting their position on county option. W. E. Lee was the only one to take a decided stand. He stood for the issue. Governor Eber hart ignored the letter of the league L. C. Spooner answered it orally to the effect that the people knew where he stood on the liquor question, and Lieutenant Governor Gordon dictated a letter in which he said his platform contained a plank which in his opinion fully covered the liquor feature of the campaign. The plank was his new idea Df a law doing away with the brewery owned saloon. County option in Min nesota has suffered two disastrous de feats and the average candidate for' gubernatorial honors does,not want to be encumbered with it. It is not that the people are against liquor regulation, or even the wiping out of the traffic, but they resent the activi ties of a few who offer themselves as those chosen to lead the people into the path of righteousness THE COUNTY CHAIRMAN. MALLADA'S TRIP INTO VESUVIUS His Story of Descent to the Floor of the Grater. ALMOST CHOKED BY THE VAPOR Temperature at Times Near the Boiling PointGhostly,Fantastic Shapes Piled AboutRumbling Sounded as if the Earth Were Groaning In Agony. "It is impossible to convey to another the weird impression made upon us by the surroundings," said Professor Mallada of the Royal observatory at Mount Vesuvius in an article in the New York World telling of his de scending a thousand feet to the bottom of the crater. "Ghostly, fantastic shapes were piled up all about us. The hollow resonance of our voices was like heavy booming, and the distant rumbling sounded as if the earth were groaning in physical agony. "Twice my companion nearly fainted from the heat, which varied from 94 to 98 degrees C. (200 to 208 degrees F. water boils at 212). and the emana tions of acids from the fumaroles (small holes from which issue volcanic vapors) threatened to suffocate us." Performer of Historic Feat. Professor Mallada, who will go down to posterity as the originator and suc cessful performer of one of the most daring feats in history, is attached to the observatory maintained on Mount Vesuvius for the scientific study of the great volcano. I'he World correspond ent was struck by his splendid physique, his penetrating eye and the signs in his countenance of an iron will and resolution of character. On this re markable journey into the depths of the earth the professor was accompa nied by Signor Varavezza, who also is attached to the observatory. "It was a case of 'if at first you don't succeed try, try again,'" Professor Mallada explained. "Perhaps you know that the last eruption, in 1906. greatly modified the internal forma tion of the crater. Before that it look ed like a funnel, its walls sloping in ward at a moderate angle to the cen tral well, which was of such depth as to render the bottom invisible from any part of the crater's mouth. Sub sequent downslips during the eruption altered the shape to one somewhat re sembling a cup, the bottom of which was visible at certain hours of the day from the mouth. The interior is more or less honeycombed with fuma roles remitting abundant jets of vapor mixed with hydrochloric acid and sul phureted hydrogen. The Perilous Descent. 'With my faithful attendant I reach ed the mouth of the crater at 9 o'clock on Friday morning. We first made fast a cable 130 yards long, which, slung around the waist, enabled us. partly sliding, partly hanging in the fashion of an Alpine climber, to reach a depth of 130 yards in the southeast part of the cone, where, after careful observation. I had decided was the best point to make a descent. "There the lava ridge slopes outward from the sides of the cone fully 100 yards. Traveling along that ledge, we reached an immense mass of lava rock and other matter from the crater slide in March. 1911, sloping at an angle of 90 degrees. "We again made fast another cable 120 yards long, enabling us to reach further the huge bank of volcanic mat ter projected inward by the same land slide. Bottom of Crater. "After two hours' clambering we reached the bottom of the crater, -which resembled a gigantic plowed field. We remained two hours at the bottom of the crater, took numerous thermomet ric and barometric observations and made a collection of mineral and other volcanic matter from which we expect valuable scientific results. "We planted a red flag in the center, which we found was just 320 yards (960 feet) from the level of the mouth. "The return climb was more difficult and perilous than the descent. Mass es of rock and ashes fell around us as we toiled upward with the aid of the ropes and several times threatened to dash us to the bottom. "After five hours' work we reached the summit pretty well exhausted, but triumphant." GETS $98,000 FOR BERTH. Harvard Graduate Remembered In Will of Patron.
