ISSDIFFBENT 1-w, V '.vsfc.' ing in honor of Mrs. Gusta Peterson of St. Paul, who is visiting here. E. S. Starkenburg sold about 15 head of yearling cattle to the John son Bros., near Princeton, and de livered them on Saturday. Ole Witgren of Pease, accompanied by friends from Willmar, looked over farms offered for sale here on Wed nesday. They did not decide to buy at present. Last week Orly Jones sold his 40 acres of land, known as Wood tick Hill, to his neighbor, Chas. Kelson. This, added to his 80 acres, gives Mr. Nelson a line farm. Grippe is still making calls at Woodward Brook. A some places he stays quite a while courting the members of a family in turn. Is he welcome? Just ask his entertainers. The answer will be a sneeze. Wm. Jaenicke and Henry Minks, ir., returned on Tuesday from the north, where they spent the past month at logging. They found it rather cold work and now think Woodward Brook just about right. In spite of the cold weather a large number of people turned out and found their way to school disrtict 2 Sunday evening, where Rev. C. Lar son conducted services. He extend ed an invitation to all to attend the Sunday school rally at Princeton next Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. If the weather moderates there will be a number who will take advantage of the occasion. Wm. Talen was appointed agent for Bogus Brook township by the board of the Glendorado Fire Insur ance Co. when it held its meeting at Princeton last Thursday. Any one wishing to insure property, renew his policy, or have changes made on the old policy can let him know over the phone or by card. Phone address is line 29. call 12, and mail will reach him over Princeton, Route 5, or Mil aca, Route 4. A number of Mrs. M. C. Thor ring *s neighbors helped her celebrate her sixtieth birthday anniversary on Wednesday evening. A pleasant time was spent in conversation and in the partaking of one of those splendid lunches Mrs. Thorring knows how to serve. A number of useful and pretty presents were given the hostess, and all left pleased and wishing Mrs. Thorring many happy returns of the da\. THREE CORNERS.

Anj'one knowing of its whereabouts please notify Aug. Bar nick, Foreston, R. 1 Less Crook, who, while cutting up some lively capers, sustained an in jury to his foot, is not at this writ ing any better. Here's hoping for a sure and speedy recovery. A bunch of young and old spent Sunday evening at the Bracken home, it being Mr. Bracken's nine ty-third birthday anniversary. Music of various kinds was rendered, while Mr. Bracken indulged in a grand old jig. I does anyone good to see a man of his age so spry. A parcel shower was given at the Gesche home last Saturday evening in honor of Miss Kathryn Gesche, a bride of this week. Miss Gesche was the recipient of many useful articles. Those present enjoyed themselves in various ways, and at midnight a delicious lunch was served. Surprise Your Friends. For four weeks regularly use Dr. King's New Life Pills.

PREPARED FOR WHAT HAPPENED Women Expected Defeat of Suf frage in Senate. DEAD FOR NEXT TWO YEARS No Chance fDr House Measure to Get Through Upper Branch at This Session. (Special Correspondence.) St. Paul, Feb. 3.Unless it be the defeat of woman suffrage the fifty eighth session of the Minnesota leg islature has done nothing as yet that would commend it as something out of the ordinary, still it has much in the making and another week may see history written. The defeat of the suffrage amendment is an old story now as news runs, but it might not be amiss to say that the women in charge of the movement were pre pared for what happened. They knew the outcome three days in advance, when a careful poll of the senate, which gave the bill its quietus, showed two votes shy of the neces sary number to pass it. There was no hysteria when the vote was an nounced the women in charge knew what was coming and they simply ac cepted the findings. Various things have been assigned as the cause of the defeat of the bill. One excited individual on the taking of the vote dramatically declared that the liquor interests were responsible and he vigorously assailed the dissenting senators at the close of adjournment, for which he was taken to task by Senator McGrath of Winona, who used the word "liar" in resenting the insinuation From an inner knowl edge of the whole thing I would hard ly like to charge the defeat up to the brewers alone There were any num ber of the senators honestly opposed to the movement and in casting their votes in the negative they had to go against a hostile city press and a but tonholing on the part of women lob byists that would have daunted many. At the same time the brewers did not favor the movement and they had al lies in many interests who figured that a doubling of the franchise only meant trouble for them. However, if they conducted any crusade against the movement it was outside the leg islative halls, for it has to be said that as far as professional lobbyists and representatives of the interests are concerned they are less in evi dence this time than in years. The question of whether the wom en of Minnesota want the ballot or that the i le voters of the state favor letting them have it is some thing that yours truly can not see his way clear to even hazard a guess. The Twin ity press was almost a unit in favor of the women but its views count for nothing when it is known that latter day ideas only fig ure with it from the standpoint of circulation. Right or wrong has no consideration with it. What will boom the circulation counts first Quoting one managing editor who was approached on the question of an or dinance cutting down the price of gas: "To h1 with the gas com pany how many subscribers will it get us if we play it right?" Putting it cold two-thirds of the housewives and women of Minnesota would not use the ballot if they had itcertain ly it is the 1 ast of their troubles now but that other third constitutes a considerable number and they are on the job tv enty-four hours a day. What they iave to say in favor of the movem makes readable stuff it brings bscribers to the Twin City press \d when they run out of readable- stuff some enterprising re porter can e'ways be counted upon to fill the gap, nd so there you are. It is the sam with every movement. "What is there in it for us?" is the cry, and so goes. If it looks good the live ones back it and if it does not it fails. Some of the friends Of the suffra gist movement are hanging their hopes on the house bill, known as the Larson act, which has been recom mended to pass. It will go to the senate should it pass the house, which has caused some to think that there is yet a chance, but for their benefit I will say there is not the ghost of a show. Woman suffrage is dead as far HS 1913 is concerned and that is all there is to it. With this knowledge many house members will likely climb aboard when the bill comes before them. Under ordinary circumstances they would be against the measur. that is a majority of them wouldbut the fact that the senate is 'ue to kill it anyway changes matters materially. J* What changes a few years bring as far as legislation is concerned. Four and two yeais ago it was county op tion. The fate of many a lawmaker hinged on th outcome. The proposi tion failed both times and it is again up with a 1 &e fate in sight. J. F. Lee of Anni. adale is the author this time and he has hopes for the passage of the measure, but the best posted figure that it will lose out by about eight votes. It is no longer even a od tToAinsr rtronosttion. The ntu ~n -s-j^jr^w^r 'X'11t**?'w^H'ir'T^r $spr^'*-%'|^wg?^*fi,"9^"Si1*"!^^Wf?-*g$pfw^i^^^lplT^fftf^^^pt^S^^^^^^^fe trouoie witn county option is mat it is not on the square. In its palmy days it furnished a meal ticket for a hungry horde who besieged the legis lature from all sides and made life a burden for the opposition. Money poured into the coffers of those back ing the bill and there were fat sal aries for everybody. This slush fund is absent now. The bill is up on its merits only and for that reason it will fail. Still there are many who honestly believe in county option and it will receive a good vote when it comes up for consideration. The house temperance committee has re ported the bill out to pass. The one uncertain thing this season is tonnage tax. Whether or not it will pass the house is a question. If it does those interested are confident that it will get by the senate. The agitation for a tonnage tax on iron ore began in 1905. Those behind the bill forced it through both houses then. Former Governor Johnson, how ever, failed to agree with the majority and he vetoed the measure. The propo sition is up again, with Representa tive Thomas Frankson of Spring Val ley and H. B. Bjorge of Lake Park as its sponsors. Under ordinary circum stances it should fail because of the little demand for it, but it has a chance and if it does pass no one will be surprised. This time tonnage tax, instead of being a real issue, has tak en on retaliatory features. When the house and senate was organized the upstate members were the first to climb aboard the Rines and Burnquist bandwagons. This gave the two men tioned leaders an undoubted lead and ever since those members who were nosed out have been threatening ven geance. Tonnage tax, it is said, is the weapon the minority has decided upon. Some say the liquor crowd is secretly backing the tonnage tax bill for purposes pf retaliation. Whether this is true or not I cannot say, but the fact remains that members of both houses against the tax two years ago and known to be friendly with the brewers are talking tonnage tax now. The initiative and referendum bill reported out by the house committee on elections will probably be made a special order and advocates of the measure are looking forward to a spirited fight. The bill which will be considered is a redratt of five bills covering the subject and introduced by as many members. For the initia tive a 3 per cent petition is' provided and for the referendum a 6, per cent petition. For amendments to the con stitution a 10 per cent petition is re quired. Two years ago the bill met defeat on the question of percentage and it will again figure this time. It is hardly probable that either house will stand for the low percentage pro vided for in the present bill. The house is now engaged in a probe of the state grain inspection service and the whole thing promises to be of more than ordinary interest. The inquiry began last Friday with an Or tonville shipper on the stand and it has to be said that his testimony was anything but commendatory as far as state inspection is concerned. Two exhibits of grain were shown which had been passed upon by two state in spectors and each gave the lot a dif ferent grade. The state warehouse commission, which is in charge of the state inspection of grain, says that its grades are alv/ays in tavor of the shipper when tt\ere is any doubt, but its claims are not shared in by a ma jority of the house. At any rate they propose finding out if there is any thing to the charges of discrimina tion and the probe now on is for the purpose of getting the desired informa tion. j. 4. 4. Representative F. L. Klemer of Faribault has introduced two bills in the house directed against the brewery owned saloons and the chances are good for their approval by the temper ance committee. One prohibits owner ship of a saloon by any brewery or wholesale liquor dealer and the other compels all applicants for a saloon license to make affidavit that they are not the agent or owner of a brewery or wholesale liquor house or in any way interested in such. Whether the bill will pass or not is a question and if it does it will not be because the brewing interests are not on the job. It is one bit of legislation they have no use for. 4- Governor Eberhart has announced the reappointment of O. M. Hall as a member of the state tax commission and his prompt action removes from the list one job that threatened to be a trouble maker. Mr. Hall, it is said, 1 will probably resign later on. He did not want to be retired and the appoint ment was in deference to his wishes. The one fat plum remaining is that of the board of control, p. M. Ringdal'b time will be out April 1 and Governor Eberhart will have the naming of his successor. All concerned are silent as to who this successor will be. If the two branches of the legis lature pass all the bills now before it calling for the location and establish ment of the new state normal schools U! will swamp the state treasury. No leius than six towns have come for ward with demands for such an insti tution and there are more on the way. The same is the case in the matter of new fish hatcheries. Requests have been made so far by four Minnesota towns that they be favored in this respect. Free sites are promised in each case.- THE COUNTY CHAIRMAN.
