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

Having received the republican
nomination at the recent primary
election for the office of sheriff of

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.

promise to put forth my best efforts
to faithfully perform the duties de
volving upon the office.
