-I A t' L" I!H it i Impractical Theories. Although the prohibitionists have but one state senator and four mem bers in the house they are still hope ful that a change of public senti ment is sure to take place in the not far distant future and eventually will get them in full control of both branches of the legislature. The trouble with these good people is their narrowsightedness. They are idealistic dreamers and almost en tirely Jose sight of the practicability and possibility of the proposition. If this feature had been given due consideration they would know that straight prohibition in Minnesota is out of the question for some time to come and that all agitation in that direction is only a useless waste of time and energy. On the other hand, much could be accomplished in the way of temperance reform, by practical regulation, if all friends of good citizenship would unite in an effort to pass enforceable laws, based upon good, common sense. Putting prohibition on the statute books is not stopping the evil complained of, unless backed up by public senti ment, and that is not the case in Minnesota. On the contrary a large majority of the people of this state, while in favor of regulation, are op posed to prohibition.St. Peter Free-Press. School Report.

To the Voters of Mille Lacs County GentlemenHaving been nomi nated at the primary as one of the three republican candidates for rep resentative from our district (the 45th), and being unable to see each one of you personally, I take this means of extending to you my most sincere thanks for your loyal support in the past. My work in the sessions of 1905, 1907 and 1909 is a matter of record and is my platform in this campaign. If my record meets with your approval your support' at theties general election, November 5, will be appreciated. I am Yours very truly, Andrew Davis. Elk River, Minn., Oct. 21, 1912. For Representative. To the Voters of the 45th District: I am the nominated candidate of the public ownership (socialist) par ty for the legislature. On all legis I will be guided by the party platform and party referendum. I will consider myself the servant of the common people and subject to party recall. I pledge myself to strive for the legal enactment of the immediate demands in the platform, among which I deem of most impor tance 1. The unrestricted and equal suffrage for men and women. 2. The initiative and referendum. 3. The right of rceall for all elec tive and appointive officers. 4. The reapportionment of legis lative and congressional districts ac cording to population. 5. The abolition of the state senate. 6. I am in favor of legislation that will assist in obtaining better roads. And such other legislation as will serve the people that work for their living. Yours truly, Henry Marpe. Princeton, Oct. 28. 1912. EUFUS P. MORTON. To the Voters of the Forty-Fifth District: Gentlemen: I am again a candidate of the pro hibition party for the legislature and in asking you to re-elect me I do so upon my record and with the expec tation that a broader acquaintance and the wisdom of experience will enable me to accomplish larger things.

"*"A"'1 hind him than his profession The greatest problem the world has ever attempted to solve is the liquor problem. The greatest curse the world has ever known is the liquor traffic and must be destroyed. The greatest menace to good govern ment in this state is brewery domi of both the executive and leg islative branches and it must be over come. Vote only for those you know will oppose this evil thing. The state of Minnesota has in pros pect an ample road fund. The laws should be so revised and simplified that they may be easily understood and the money applied to actual con struction and maintenance of the roads. If elected I shall seek the passage of laws: (1) Prohibiting the manufacture and sale of alcoholic liquors for beverage purposes, (2) Granting the right to vote the saloon out by counties in the event of the failure to pass prohibitory laws, (3) Public control (or, if necessary ownership) of such utilities as are natural monopolies, (4) The initiative and the referen dum, (5) A just and fair readjustment of the legislative districts. The present rules of the house are antiquated and vicious and permit a small minority to control legislation as instanced by the last house. If elected I shall do all in my power to help reconstruct them so that the people's rights may be conserved and the power of the combine broken. Yours sincerely, Rufus P. Morton.

I assure you that, if I am re-elected, I shall en deavor to continue to fulfill the du of this office to the best of my ability and with consideration to all. Thanking you for your generous sup port in the past, I am, Yours truly, Harry Shockley. For County Commissioner. Having secured more than double the necessary number of names to my petition, I am an independent candidate for county commissioner in the first commissioner district Princeton town and village. Some of my friends want to know why I withdrew after I had filed as a democratic candidate for the office. The reason is this: I knew there would be only a few democratic votes cast at the primary election and, ifhousehold I should not receive ten per cent of the democratic vote polled at thetracting last election, I would have to go onlarge the ballot by petition and as an independent candidate. I was born in Princeton, have always lived here and all my inter ests are here. If elected I will work for the best interests of the district and the entire county. Oct. 15, 1912. C. Cater.
