Things Political Throughout the
State Very Quiet.
Candidates Unable to Impress
4. 4.
Public interestat any rate surface
interesta disinclination to be dis
turbed and the absolute failure of any
state candidate to impress is the one
feature that has characterized the
campaign so far and it threatens to
xtend through to the close. It
Impresses one who is really interest
ed that the babblings of the old timer
who talks about how things "uster
was" brings back memories of other
days and makes one wonder what has
brought about the change Of course
the new primary law is in a measure
responsible It is the indifference of
the voter, though, that astonishes. All
around it is hardly likely that the ex
penses of the two big state head
quarters will run over four figures
this time The smallness of expendi
tures is accounted for by the short
ness of the election campaign, which
is less than five weeks What the
candidates spent in the primary cam
paign, however, is another question.
The dozen or more nimble fingered
stenographers which characterized
previous state headquarters is a miss
ing quantity this year. The reason is
the lack of time in which to get out
the customary printed matter and
have it reach the voter Instead it
will be a speaking campaign pure and
simple and both sides will turn loose
the oratory in a few days That the
speakers will get the crowds, however,
is a question, for as I told you the
voters refuse to be interested. All of
which goes to prove that the fellow
who "uster was" is right. Things po
litical have certainly changed.

^Minnesota is supposed to have the
most drastic corrupt practices act of
any state in the Union, but it comes
near being a joke since a judge in
Hennepin county passed on some of
Its provisions His findings were to
the effect that if a friend sawfitto
put a few dollars into your campaign
and it was done without your knowl
edge the excess could not be charged
up against you. The little joker is
section 34 and the state legal depart
ment practically admits that if its aid
Is invoked there is no possible chance
of a conviction The court is the sole
Judge as to whether a violation was
committed or not and in effect the
section puts a price on ignorance.
Voters as They Did in
the Olden Days.
(Special Correspondence.)
St. Paul, Oct. 14.The man
ays that things are "not like they
lister was" is right. We possibly as
sociate him with the spavined indi
vidual who knows of winters that
were much colder than the present
one and a fast decreasing few who
nee upon a time could have bought
,the ground on which the Capital City
is built for a song, but Just the same
is telling you what is true. Things
political in Minnesota are sure "not
what they uster be." Republicans and
Democrats opened state headquarters
in St. Paul the early part of last week,
*ut the event was not marked by any
unusual display on the part of those
oncerned or by any particular men
tion by the papers. E E. Smith, state
chairman, and E. B. Hawkins slipped
quietly into the rooms assigned them
in the Republican headquarters and
Martin O'Brien of Crookston and
Frank Day of Fairmont took desks of
qual importance in the cramped
quarters designated as the brief home
of the state Democratic central com
mittee The two suites of five rooms
each might have been the quarters of
some sedate corporation for all the
outside world knew There was no
bustle or handshaking. Gone was the
little circle, a feature of anterooms of
the past, likewise the cheery voice of
the precinct boy from up state. There
was no permanency anywhere. One
momentarily expected to see the in
stallment house man enter the door
and walk off with the few desks and
chairs scattered about the two suites.
Possibly the feeling was largely imag
inative, but it did not seem as if those
In charge were as warm in their
greeting as those in the days of old
There is something lacking and such
has been the case ever since the cam
paign started.
The Fourth district is just now the
warmest congressional battleground

ent incumbent, is the Republican nom

he polls 1,500 or more votes and

P. M. Ringdal, the Democratic guber- !w

campaign last week with a keynote
speech at Zumbrota,^ copies of which
are now being distributed among the

Secretary of State Schmahl has com
pleted the ballot that will be voted
next month and as far as the position
of the presidential electors are con
cerned It is hardly to the liking of the
Bull Moosers. Their electors are the
last of a list of five ands far down
the ballot that the position cannot
but be harmful. The state ballot this
time is nearly four feet long and about
as cumbersome a piece of paper as
was ever turned out.

Hugh T. Halbert, the head of theSaid
third party movement, and his back
ers are now directing all their energies
toward the getting of Secretary of
State Schmahl's scalp. One St. Paul
daily has been devoting its space daily
to showing up his alleged shortcom
ings and the Bull Moose crowd, it is
said, will shortly supplement it with
an appeal to the voters for the third
party candidate. They may reduce
Schmahl's usual lead, but it's a ten to
one shot that they will not get his of

looked upon as one of the best sure

of the Republican state campaign.
The stunt is going to cost some money,
but Mr. Halbert and his followers do
not seem to lack in that respect. Their
campaign is said to be the best in
the way of finances of any in the state
James Manahan, the Republican
nominee for congressman at large, it
is reported has been taken into the or
ganization camp and from now on will
aid the leaders in landing the full
ticket. His picture is to appear in the
Republican campaign text book and
bis candidacy is to receive the full
backing of the organization. Jim was
a Democrat and in the days of hisand
fight for recognition he lambasted the
other side pretty freely. In his fiery
way he assailed the Grand Old Party
from all sides. How he is going to
reconcile his past with his new con
fession of faith is beyond the best of
the wise ones, but, as they say, most
anything is possible in politics these

If apathy Is disinterestedness then
Minnesota politically is a dead one
these days. Campaigners say they
never saw such a condition. Martin
O'Brien, chairman of the Democratic
state central committee, does not ex
pect to see an awakening until the
last week of the campaign. E. E
Smith of the Republican committee
says things are the same in the Re
publican camp The two leaders are
going to reserve their forces for the
last week and a half.

The erection of a statue of the late
Governor John A. Johnson on the state
capitol grounds is expected to lead to
an agitation for the honoring of others
prominent in the history of the state.
The next legislature will be asked for
an appropriation for a memorial to
Governor Ramsey and possibly one to
Senator Davis. The absence of some
recognition the services of Governor
Ramsey in the form of a statue or
picture has been commented upon ever
since the new building was opened.
There is now no further question
regarding the constitutionality of the
statewide primary law. In a special
handed down Saturday deny
ing W. Brandborg of Henning, the
Socialist Labor candidate for gov

supreme court says the law is right
that the title is sufficient and that the
law is a complete repeal of all laws
