St. Paul Mayor Picked to Lead
Republican State Ticket.
Kxpected Ringdal Would Secure a
Much Larger Vote Than
Shown by Returns.
(Special Correspondence.^
St Paul, Nov. 12.It is a far cry to
the campaign of 1914, but the fact is
in no way a bar to the activities ol
the Republican king makers, who, I
understand, have already practically
decided npon gubernatorial material
for the next contest Mayor H. P.
Keller of St Paul, a young German,
is said to have been picked and the
story is that his selection was at the
Instance of Mr. Keller himself. A
number of his backers picked him out
as a successor to Governor Eberhart
two years ago and when he was again
re-elected to the mayoralty last spring
it only increased their efforts in his
behalf. Of course all this, mind you,
is on the assumption that Governoi
Eberhart will retire at the close of
his second term and shy his castor
Into the ring as a successor to United
States Senator Clapp There is a pos
sibility that his ambitions might be
satisfied sooner Mayor Keller's
gubernatorial ambitions have been
known for a long time When he
made a second run for the 6t Paul
mayoralty an appeal, it is said, was
made to the Democratic leaders to let
up on their opposition on the ground
that his election meant much a
Twin City way and during the late
campaign he went so far as to issue
a general letter saying that the elec
tion of Governor Eberhart would be a
card in his favor He made every ef
fort to keep Ramsey county in the
Eberhart column and this line of ac
tivity even extended to his close
friends, who are anxious to see his
gubernatorial ambitions satisfied
Governor Eberhart by 30,000, Roose
velt the national winner by at least
18,000 and the entire Republican state
ticket elected by majorities ranging
from 35,000 to 65,000 is the way the
returns read Outside of the vote
given the national candidate the re
sult did not come as any surprise,
though the Democratic leaders were
confident that Mr Ringdal, their
standard bearer, would get more votes
than he did They also pinned their
hopes on Harvey Grimmer, who was
pitted against Julius Schmahl for
the office of secretary of state Grim
mer did not in any way meet expecta
tions. The one surprise in the state
fight was the failure of the third party
ticket to make good. The candidates
on this ticket finished a poor fifth
V. Collins, the third party guberna
torial candidate, was simply a joke at
the finish The minor candidates on
his ticket polled more votes than he
4* 4* 4*
As far as the minor parties are con
cerned the Prohibitionists get the
most satisfaction out of the state con
test The candidates of this party
were third the race and with a vote
the largest in the history of the or
ganization E E Lobeck, the candi
date for governor, carried his own
county (Douglas) by a substantial ma
jority This could not be said of
some of the other candidates. Lobeck
made a spectacular campaign and in
the vote cast he cut heavily into a
following that would ordinarily be be
hind P. Ringdal, the Democratic
candidate The impression abroad
was that Mr Ringdal, the Democratic
candidate, was a county optionigt and
while it hurt him with the Democratic
voters it availed him little with the
temperance element, who knew that
it was not true.
Rumors are thick about the state
capitol that the coming year will see
a reorganization as far as many of
the minor offices are concerned and
that several appointive officials will
have to walk the plank. The story
is that Governor Eberhart is going to
do some weeding out as goon as he
starts on his second term. What
there is the talk I do not know, but
it is said that Kelsey Chase, state
bank superintendent, may be retired
in favor of a Washington county man
W Cox, state forester, who enjoys
a salary of $4,000 and expanses, is
said to be receiving consideration.
Cox was brought from Washington on
the creation of the bureau and it is
said has been pretty much a JaPtv unto
himself ever since There will be
some weeding out in the ddfry and
food department Democraftc hold
overs in the departments are sure to
be replaced.

There is much gloom about the fed
eral building in St. Paul theSe days
ana the darkness will not be dispelled
until Governor Wilson has been for
mally inaugurated as president and
his administration policies income
known. United States Marshal
Grimshaw, who is now serving his fifth
term, expects to be retired, and
ggjgjjg^^ ''WwiilMH
does Marcus Johnson, collector, and
ped* von Baumbach, the head of the
Internal rexenue department in Min
nesota. L. M. Willcuts of Duluth is
another who is likely to go. All
have been enjoying fat salaries tor
some years. The minor offices in the
federal building are protected by civil
service. Marcus Johnson, formerly
of Atwater, is perhaps the hardest hit.
He was an active partisan and head
*d the Taft forces in the late fight
Marcus, however, was always a good
loser and his retirement will not
bother him much.

It will probably be weeks before the
fate of the constitutional amendments
voted upon at the recent election are
known. To date they have been over
looked by the correspondents and the
impression is growing that practically
all of them have gone down to de
feat. The one exception is probably
the one-mill tax amendment. There
is some hope for it R. C. Dunn ot
Princeton, the author of this particu
lar amendment, spent his own good
money to bring about its pas
sage and this, with a large amount
of publicity given it by the papers, is
thought to have saved it. The seven
senators amendment is known to be
dead also the amendment providing
for an increase in the railroad gross
earnings law.
How to interest the voters in the
constitutional amendments offered ev
ery two years is due to be the sub
ject of much serious thought and the
whole is likely to be considered at
the coming session of the legislature
One thing sure, the unusually long
state and county ballot, which was a
feature of the election last week, did
not help any and it may be that the
work of those interested will be di
rected at shortening it. In St. Paul
and Minneapolis voters had to con
tend with several strips of paper, the
whole of which aggregated nearly eight
feet in length, and many threw away
the ballot containing the constitutional
amendments disgust. This, added
to poorly lighted booths and a space
scarcely big enough to stand in, was
responsible for the city charter
amendments failing Many voters
turned the ballots in without even
marking them.

Minneapolis is the only city in the
state to adopt the voting machine
and its experience with them is not
likely to add to their popularity else
where. Last Tuesday thousands ot
voters were disfranchised because ot
the inability of the voters ahead to
manipulate them. To this was added
dilatory tactics on the part of those
interested. In many cases voters were
a full fifteen minutes in registering
their preferences Two years ago an
effort was made to slip a bill through
the legislature compelling th use of
voting machines all ovei the state,
but fortunately the joker was located
and the bill tailed.

F. Lynch of St. Paul, national
Democratic committeeman, is now
the King Bee Minnesota and no
one would be surprised if the Wilson
administration did not do something
handsome for him when it assumes
control. A cabinet job is among the
possibilities Not that Mr. Lynch
needs the money, as he is reported to
be in the millionaire class, but simply
the honor. Frank A Day is another
who is mentioned as in line for offi
cial preferment. Both were original
Wilson men. Frank might pull down
one of the jobs in the federal build
ing in St. Paul. They carry salaries
ranging from $3,500 to $5,000

In mentioning gubernatorial possi
bilities for 1914 it might be in order to
say that W. E. Lee of Long Prairie
may again be the game. That is
the talk in this neck of the woods.
In the late primaries Lee pressed Gov
ernor Eberhart hard and had it not
been for the large field ot candidates
might have defeated him. After the
fight was over friends of both Mr. Lee
and Governor Eberhart made efforts
to have Mr. Lee come out and give
Governor Eberhart his best wishes,
but the Long Prairie man refused. In
a measure he was the most consistent
of all the Republican candidates. He
said that he had made the state
ment that Governor Eberhart was not
worthy to be returned and he could
not very well change his opinion
even though the people had voted oth
erwise. The talk is that the cam
paign cost Mr. Lee and his friends a
considerable amount of money, but
if it did his expense account does not
show any expenditures beyond the le
gal amount.

The bell wether of Minnesota De
i mocracy since the death of the late
Governor Johnson is Congressman
Hammond of the Second district, but
the St. James man had anything but
a walkaway in his contest with F. F.
Ellsworth of Mankato for a return
ticket to Washington. At last ac
counts Hammond had less than 800 to
the good and his majority in times
past was never below the 1,000 mark.
It is said that if the Republican can
didate had made a vigorous fight he
might have gotten away with the
4- 4
It looks very much as if Judge Hal
lam of St. Paul had won over Justice
1 Bunn for the latter's place on the
supreme bench. Judge HalUm's ma
jority is now in the neighborhood of
5,000 and it continues to grow. The
elevation of Judge Hallam to the su
preme bench will leave a vacancy on
the district bench of Ramsey county
and many are after the place. The
appointment will be made by Governor
Eberhart after the first of the year.
He Introduced the Policy of Compul
sory Inoculation In the Army.
Major General Robert Maitland
O'Reilly, U. S. A., letired. who died r
cently in Washmgton, was surgeon gen
eral of the United States army tiom
1902 until 1909, physician and close
personal friend of the late President
Grover Cleveland and the only medical
officer of the regular army who held
the rank of major general.
He was the son of the late John
O'Reilly of Philadelphia and was born
in that city Jan. 14, 1845, his ancestors
having been of distinguished Irish
stock settled in Pennsylvania before
the Revolution. General O'Reilly was
not a West Point graduate, but received
his education and medical training at
the University of Pennsylvania, where
he was a student toward the end of the
civil war. Leaving the university, he
was appointed for civil war service on
Jan. 7, 1864, as a medical cadet, and at
the close of the war returned to the
university to complete his studies. In
1867 he entered the regular army 'as
assistant surgeon and passed through
the various grades until in the fall of
1902 he was appointed surgeon genera!
of the army, with the rank of brigadier
general, by former President Roose
It had been General O'Reilly's pleas
ure in recent years to be able to pomt
to the fact that his appointment to this
office was made solely on his record
President Roosevelt never met General
O'Reilly, who at the time of his ap
pointment was stationed in California,
and insisted that the appointment of a
new surgeon general, who should have
charge of the health of the armj,
should be based only upon the record
of the appointee.
It was about that time in 1902 that
General O'Reilly lost through death
by typhoid fever his only son, the late
Philip Maitland O'Reilly, who had just
been graduated from the Naval
academy, and it was because he lost
his son through this malady that Gen
eral O'Reilly decided that he would do
everything in his power to contribute
toward cutting down the death rate
from typhoid fever in the army it
was under his regime that the experi
ments with the antityphoid serum
were conducted by the medical corps
of the army, and General O'Reilly in
sisted, when the medical staff reached
the conclusion that the anti-typhoid
serum could be safely and efficaciously
administered, that the compulsory in
oculation of soldiers with this serum
be introduced into the army.
After the civil war General O'Reilly
saw hard service as medical officer in
the field with troops in the Indian
campaigns, and during the war with
Spain he was chief surgeon of the
Fourth army corps He was a mem
ber of the evacuation commission at
Havana at the end of the Spanish war
During the strike troubles of 1877
around Baltimore, Pittsburgh and
other railroad centers General O'Reilly,
then a captain and assistant surgeon,
was with the regulars sent to those
1t362 Montana Business Men Ask Re
turn of $500,000 Excess Charges.
A petition has been filed with the in
terstate commerce commission which
constitutes a record In the history of
the commission in two respects. It
contains the names of 1,562 separate
complainants, business men of Mon
tana, and it demands reparation in the
sum of $500,000.
The complaint is directed against the
Northern Pacific railway and seventy
five other carriers, operating between
the Atlantic seaboard and the Rocky
mountains. It attacks freight rates on
all classes and commodities as unrea
sonable, exorbitant and discriminatory
and a reduction of from 25 to 50 per
cent demanded, according to the char
acter of the articles transported.
Damages in the sum mentioned are county, Minnesota, on the 19th day ot Decern
demanded for alleged excessive charges
on shipments during the years 1910,
1911 and 1912.
Arlington, Va., and Eiffel Tower
Send Out Signals.
Wireless telegraphy will be brought
Into play shortly to establish the exact
time at points in Europe and America
at the same moment For the first
time it will be possible to precisely es
tablish the longitude of Europe and
America when signals are sent out
from the powerful station at Arling
ton, Va., and the Eiffel tower in Paris.
It is expected that this will be accom
plished about the middle of November.
At present Washington sends out
American time. Commander Hough at
the international time conference stat
ed that an error was being made of
one-thousandth part of a second. Ex
act time has been fixed only three
timesin 1866, 1870 and 1872.
Joints, Omitted by Nature, Are Pro
vided by a Surgeon's Skill.
A remarkable operation was recently
successfully performed at a Baltimore
hospital on a fourteen-year-old boy
who since birth had been unable to
move his jaws and had been fed
through a tube. His jaw bones were
stiff, with no normal "tinges."
The surgeon cut through the solid
mass of bone where the joint should
have been and modeled upon the sec
tions actual joints, such as nature ordi
narily provides. The child can now
move his jaws normally.
A private institution which combines all the
advantages of a perfectly equipped hospital
with the quiet and comfort of a refined and
elegant home. Modern In every respect. No
Insane, contagious or other objectionable cases
received. Rates are as low as the most effi
cient treatment and the best trained nursing
will permit.
