Northern Minnesota Editorial Associa-
tion Holds Midwinter Meet-
ing at Crookston.
Editors and Representatives of Whole-
salers and Jobbers Discuss
Advertising Problem.
The editors of northern Minnesota
held a mighty interesting meeting at
Crookston last Thursday, Friday and
Saturday. The meeting was not only
interesting but thoroughly delightful
in every respect. Tho people in
Crookston are royal entertainers and
no moro hospitable hosts could be
found than Messrs. McKenzic and
Zealand of the Crookston Times. Ev
erything possible was done for the
pleasure and comfort of the visitors,
who expressed their appreciation
the following verse:
Oh, happy day, oh happy day
When we cajme out
This Crookston way.
We've had a time,
It ain't no josh,
We hate to leave,
We do, by gosh
Happy dayHappy day,
When we come out
This Crookston way.
The meeting opened Thursdry even
ing with a smoker at the Crookston
Association of Commerce rooms. H.
Z. Mitchell, Bcmidji, president of the
association, addressed the members
iiif and A. G. Rutledge of Minnerpolis,
secretary of the association, gave his
annual report. Dr. Prosser, director
of the Dunwoody institute, Minneap
olis discussed "Dunwoody institute and
its relation to the printing industry.1'
The splendid opportunities offered by
the Dunwoody institute to the employ
ees of the newspapers and the print
ing shops of the state should do much
to relieve the shortage of trained
printers and In
vype operators. Dr.
Prosser also outlined a plan whereby
a digest of the news of the day could
be sent by wireless to the smaller Min
nesota daily newspapers.
The early train Friday Drought
quite a contingent of reinforcements
to the assembled delegates. Later
the morning the whole hody, about 130
strong, assembled at the Northwest
school of agriculture. Not only
Crookston but all of Minnesota should
be proud of this school. It was estab
lished 1896 and during the firsc
year it had an enrollment of 31, 23
boys and 8 girls. In 1910 the atten
dance had increased to 101 and 1920
to 301. The school of agriculture and
i the experiment station operate to
gether. The station land of 476 acr^s
is devoted entirely to experimental
projects such as drainage, farm rota
tion systems, fertilizer and soil fer
tility tests, growing pedigreed seeds,
potato tests, and providing forage for
the station live istock. The livestock
and poultry departments furnish ma
terial for practical demonstrations.
The agricultural school, with its fine
group of buildings, must have cost the
state quite a sum of money, but surely
Jp it is money well invested. The boys
and girls who presented a short pro
gram welcoming the editors to the
Red River valley are the best possible
evidence of the wisdom of maintain
ing such a school. We venture to say
that few people in that audience ever
had the pleasure of seeing a brighter,
more wholesome and independent look
ing group of boys and girls. The
calamity howlers can bewail their lot
from now until doomsday hut no one
can prophesy a gloomy future for Min
nesota as long as such boys and girls
are found on the farms. They will be
T* the men and women who will send
Minnesota straight to the front.
Luncheon was served in the school

Andrew J. Bullis.
Andrew J. Bullis, an old settler of
this village, daed at the home of Mr.
and iffrs. G. I. Staples on Tuesday
night, January 25, at 11 m. He
had been ailing for a long time, and
jabout a month ago was compelled to
take to his bed in consequence of the
rupture of a small blood vessel on the
brain which rendered hira virtually
blind. He suffered intense pain dur
ing this period but bore it uncomplain
ingly to the end.
Andrew J. Bullis was born in Knox
county, Ohio, on August 27, 1845, and
moved to Indiana with his parents
when a child. There he grew to man
hood and learned the carpenter trade.
He came to Princeton in 1866 and fol
lowed his trade until 1879, when he
opened a wagon shop, which he con
ducted for many years. His wife,
whose maiden name was Alice Lihby,
died in the early eighties. He is snr-
vived by his daughter, Mrs. George I.
Staples, and one granddaughter, Helen
Andrew, or "Andy" Bullis, ns he
was familiarly known to his fnends,
was always industrious and wo ked
hard until compelled by failing health
to relinquish his labors. He was a
man who attended strictly to his own
buisness and was honest in his trans
actions, hence he held the respect of
the whole community. Deceased was
a true American citizen who leaves
many friends who will long hold his
memory in reverence.
Funeral services will be held to
morrow (Friday) afternoon at 2:30
o'clock from the residence and the in
terment will be at Oak Knoll.
First of Suits Heard by Justice Mor
ton on TuesdayDecision of
Court is Reserved.
The first of the potato cases, in
which defendants are charged by the
state department of weights and
measures with taking more than 100
pounds of potatoes for a hundred
weight, came before Justice Morton
for hearing on Tuesday and consumed
the greater part of the day.
The case was entitled State of Min
nesota vs. Roy Clute. Mr. Clute is a
potato buyer for the J. C. Famechon
company. Attorney W A. Blanchard
of Anoka (appointed by the attorney
general) assisted County Attorney
Doane in conducting the prosecution.
Defendant was represented by the law
firm of Trafford & Jayne, Minneap
olis. Several witnesses were heard
and Judge Morton announced that he"
would reserve judgment pending the
submission of briefs within 20 days by
the attorneys on both sides.
Another case pending against Clute
and one against T. F. Scheen will not
be tried until decision is rendered in
the first case.
The case against Gottwerth & Co.
was nolled.
Farm Bureau in Mille Lacs County.
The farm bureau drive in Mille

South Harbor on Friday, Isle and
Wahkon on Monday and Princeton on
Tuesday. The members in Princeton
township will meet at 1 p. in the
village hall.
Members of the Farm Bureau as
sociation in Greenbush township met
at the town hall on Monday after
noon for the purpose of organizing
the local unit. There are 60 members
this township, but not all of them
were present at the meeting.
Louis Normandin acted as tempor
ary chairman and Will Walker as tem
porary secretary. Mr. Brooks outlined
the plan of the organization and spoke
briefly on the aims of the farm bureau.
The following officers were elected:
Director, Louis'Normandin vice direc
tor, A. ~E. Grow secretary, Will
The meeting was then thrown open
to the members and a lively discussion
ensued concerning the functions of the
farm "bureau and the -most promising
lines of activity for the township unit.
The members are certainly interested
in the Parm Bureau association and
they are going to make it an effective
By a unanimous vote of the mem
bers present the secretary was in
structed to convey a message of sym
pathy to one of its members, William
Stark, who recently lost his wife.
The next meeting of the association
will be eafled by the director, Louis
Normandin, and it is expected a coun
ty agent Will have then been secured.
It is reported that some very promis
ing candidates are available for the
position of county a^ent.
Henry Jopp.
Henry Jopp, an old settler of Prince
ton township, died on Tuesday morn
ing at his home from valvular dis
ease of the heart, from which he had
suffered for more than six years. Fu
neral services were conducted by Rev.
Otto Strauch at Zion Lutheran church

quently 76 years 4 months and three
-days old at the time of his death. He
came to the United States when a
young man and had lived in Princeton
township over 30 years. His wife died
five years ago and he leaves no chil

mer who was respected by all who
knew him.
The Princeton Co-operative Creamery
Holds Annual Convention With
A. F. Meyer Presiding.
Financial Statement Shows Prosper-
ous Year and Increase in
Volume of Business.
The Princeton Co-operative Cream
ery company, one of the most success
ful concerns of its kind in the north
west, held its annaul meeting in the
armory on Tuesday afternoon. Presi
dent A. F. Meyer called the meeting
to order about 1:30. While the at
tendance was not large, there were
something like 100 representative far
mers presentfarmers who pin their
faith to the co-operative dairying sys
Manager Jones addressed the assem
blage on the advantages of co-opera
tion and gave a brief history of the
Princeton creamery from the time of
its establishment 1910, showing the
fluctuations in prices of buttcrfat and
the progress made. Within the past
two years, he said, there has been a
great improvement in the butter mar
keted in consequence of grading the
cream. He spoke of the butter substi
tutes on the market and the butter
coming in from foreign countries, de
claring it was necessary to produce a
high-grade product, for which there is
always a big demand, in order to sue
cessfully compete with importations.
He urged the farmers to pay more at
tention to the co-operative part of
dairying and bring their cream often
so that it will grade No. 1. The
delivery system should be changed, he
said, and he hoped the patrons would
co-operate with the management.
The president reported that he had
received a check from the Minnesota
Dairies Co-operative association for
$187.50 for dividends on profits from
July to December 31, 1920.
Following the reading of the min
utes of the last annual meeting by
Secretary-Treasurer Clough, Manager
Jones read the report for the year
1920. The financial statement showed
that the company was in a prosperous
condition and that the volume of busi
ness was much larger that that of the
preceding year. The report for 1920

The following amendments to' the
by-laws were, after some discussion,
To allow each member of the board
of directors^ per day for every meet
ing attended instead of $1.50 as at
To elect the board of directors as
follows: Two for three years, two for
two years and one for one year.
The section regarding dividends was
discussed and a change considered, but
it was voted to let said section remain
as it stands.
A board of directors was then elect
ed as follows:'
For three yearsA. F. Meyer and
D. L. Clough.
For two yearsH. C. Nelson and
Louis Rocheford.
For one yearJohn Dalchow.
The hoard then organized and elect
ed A. F. Meyer president, H. C. Nelson
vice president and D. L. Clough sec
Captain Johnson, referring to the
shipment of butter from Denmark,
New Zealand and other foreign coun
tries into the United States, said it
would be well for dairying and other
farming interests to jointly memori
alize congress to take measures to
stop the dumping upon American
markets of butter and other products
which enter into competition with
home products.
The session then adjourned.
There was complaint at the meet
ing, and not without reason, of the in
sufficient heat in the armory auditori
um upon this occasion. This cannot
be attributed to the heating system,
but the fact that there was scarcely
any fire in the furnace.
Annual Meeting of Association Held
at Milaca and Report Shows
Successful Year.
A very successful meeting of the
Mille Lacs County Live Stock Breed
ers' association, including swine breed
ers and poultry raisers, was held in
the school house, Milaca, last Satur
day afternoon. There was an excep
tionally large attendance of enthusi
astic live stock men in evidence, all
of whom were strongly in favor of in
creasing their pure-bred live stock of
all kinds.
President Sam Droogsma and others
addressed the meeting. Mr. Droogs
ma pointed out the many advantages
to be derived from keeping full-blood
ed live stock and the secretory read
the annual report of the association,
which showed that the number of pure
breds owned by the association is
much larger than that of last year and
is being rapidlr mcrased. The mem
bership of the association has almost
doubled in the past 12 months.
The association elected the follow
ing officers for the ensuing year: Sam
Droogsma, president Emil Lundine,
vice president Louis Normandin, sec
retary-treasurer. No better men could
have been selected. They are experts
in live stock raising and can be de
pended upon to faithfully perform the
duties devolving upon them.
Two Men Injured and Taken to North
western HospitalThe Car
is Wrecked.
An automobile occupied by Erick
Erickson and N. N. Edstrom of Dalbo
was struck by this morning's passen
ger train on the First street crossing,
north of the depot. It appears that
the men did not see the approaching
train until they were close to the
tracks, when the driver applied the
brakes. The ground was icy, how
ever, and the car forged forward to
the center of the track and the train
struck it, tearing off the two front
wheels and crushing the body. The
occupants were thrown out and Erick
son sustained a severe injury to his
right hip and a slighter one to his
right arm, while Edstrom escaped with
a scalp wound and pn injury to his
right side.
The injured men were conveyed to
the Northwestern hospital.
Mr. and Mrs. T. S. Corteau Sustain
Severe Injuries When Precip
itated From Buggy.
A serious accident occurred on Sun
day morning about a mile and a half
west of Princeton, when a horse at
tached to a huggy occupied by Mr. and
Mrs. T. S. Corteau and child became
frightened at an automobile driven by
Clair Kaliher which approached from
the rear. The horse ran away and the
buggy collided with a mail box, throw
ing the occupants out.
Mr. Corteau's right shoulder was
dislocated and Mrs. Corteau, who
struck the ground head first, was ren
dered unconscious and sustained a
number of cuts and bruises. The child,
however, escaped without a scratch.
Mrs. Corteau is still confined to her
bed. Dr. Armitage is attending the
injured persons.
Both our high school basketball
teams met with a reverse last Thurs
day evening in Anoka. The boys team
was beaten by a score of 20 to 11 and
the girls also lost with a score of 22
to 16. The home teams may be able
to shift these scores a bit if the Anoka
teams play them here.
Counties Which Expended Money for
Preparatory Work on Roads
to be Reimbursed.
Developments in Tonnage Tax Fight
Will Doubtless Come to Head
Within Short Time.
Counties which were confident that
the Babcock amendment would pass
and spent millions for good roads in
advance are slated for reimbursement
in a bill introduced by Representative
Oren. It is estimated that $12,000,000
was expended in this preparatory
By a vote of 83 to 4 the bill of
Representative W. J. Darby, requiring
towns and villages to maintain public
rest rooms was passed in the house.
The bill, as passed, requires the rooms
to be open from 10 a. m. to 6 p. m.
Representatives Serline and Enger
have introduced a bill providing that
the compensation of a road officer be
$5 per day for the time employed and
that he furnish a bond of $250.
Senator P. J. McGarry and Repre
sentative G. H. Harried are authors of
a bill providing for a branch school of
agriculture at Grand Rppids, to be
as a department of the
University of Minnesota.
Armistice day, November 11, is
made a legal holiday in Minnesota by
Henry N. Benson's bill which passed
the senate. There was no opposition.
A similar hill is pending in the house
and the Benson bill will be substituted
for it. The senate also passed Frank
E. Putnam's bill permitting the incor
poration of American legion posts.
Developments in the tonnage tax
fight before the Minn sot legislature
will come to a he?d within the next
few weeks. In spite of the confusion
due to the five different bills on the
subject that are pending, it is possible
to mako a close forecast as to the re
port of the committee. The bill which
the committee will send out, and which
probably will pass the house with lit
tle change, is not going to differ very
greatly from tLe Bendixon bill passed
at the 1919 extra session, and vetoed
by Govcri or J. A. A. Burnquist. Only
one question remains in the air. It is
whether the tonnage tax shall be in
lieu of all state taxes on the iron
properties or in lieu of the state tax
on the mined ore.
Supporters of Highway Commis
sioner Charles Babcock and the
one-man commissioner idea are in the
saddle in the lower house following a
victory for the one commissioner plan
in committee. The committee, by a
vote of 6 to 23, defeated W. D. Wash
burn's motion to insert a commission
of three salaried members in the high
way bill. It then directed a subcom
mittee to draft the bill with a single
commissioner provided, to be appoint
ed by the governor, with power to
name two assistants. Sentiment in
the senate is said to lean strongly to
a three-man commission, but Senator
P. H. McGarry, chairman of the sen
ate committee, wants seven commis
sioners to represent the various sec
tions of the state. He would have
one from northwestern Minnesota,
one from the northeastern part of the
state, two from southern Minnesota,
one from the western counties, and
two from the twin cities.
Of the 10 former service men who
are members of the new house, nine
are against Representative O. D. Nel
lermoe's bill allowing conscientious ob
jectors, who claimed exemption, but
later were dj~~ted and served, to re
ceive a Minnesota state bonus. A sub
committee, headed by Reperesentative
Sherman W. Child, met and drafted a
measure which was satisfactory to the
service men, and eliminated the ob
jectional feature.
Adoption of a compromise plan for
financing soldiers' bonus claims,
reached at a conference in the office of
Governor J. A. O. Pru last Friday,
is expected to result in early payment
of remaining bonus claims. Governor
Preus acted as irediator with success.
A resolution memorializing congress
to prohibit immigration for one year,
pending passage of a law for select
ing desirable immigrants, was report
ed for passage by the house committee
on public welfare. "They are sending
over the offscourings of cenrtal Eu-
rope," said Sherman W. Child, chair
man of the committee, who recently
spent 10 months in Europe.
The senate finance committee will
allow the bill on state bonus to lie
dormant until February 3, when bids
on bonds will be opened. If bids are
favorable a bill providing for the sale
of bonds to finance the payments will
be rushed through. If bids are not
acceptable, the proposal of M. J. Des-
mond to pay the claims from the gen
eral fund will be given serious co.i

Sullivan's Bill Authorizing Commis
sioners to Issue Bonds for Court
House Passes the Senate.
A bill introduced by J. D. Sullivan
of St. Cloud authorizing the county
commissioners of any county to issue
bonds for the sum of three per cent of
the assessed valuation of the county
for the purpose of building and equip
ping a court house, has passed the
senate This bill has been rather
quietly shoved through the senate with
all speed along with six other bills
which were considered as minor
measures and only of local importance.
This bill of Senator Suljjvan's is truly
only of local importance since it is
said to effect only two counties in the
state, Mille Lacs and Stearns. Sena
tor Hamer went to Senator Sullivan
last week and entered protest against
the bill but all in vain Sullivan held
it was then too late to make any
changes. Now Mr. Sullivan is a
lawyer of considerable ability and he
has kept in close touch with the court
house situation in Mille Lacs county
during the last year, so of course he
knows just how his bill jwill effect
this county. We understand that
some residents of this county favor
Sullivan's^bill because it would facili
tate the task of raising money for the
new court house and would eliminate
all the trouble of referring the mat
ter of the bond issue to the people. Of
course our county officials at Milaca
must be housed, but we believe that
the majority of taxpayers will rather
resent having this bond issue slipped
right over on them without a chance
to a word on the question.
Everyone realizes the situation in
Stearns county calls for extreme
measures. Stearns county appropriat
ed $300,000 for a new court house and
that sum was spent on the foundation
only. Now it seems that something
must be placed on top of this foun
dation and the $300,000 is alL gone.
Since the majority of taxpayers in
Stearns county feel that $300,000
should have been a sufficient sum to
construct not merely a foundation but
the whole court house and they re
fuse to appropriate any more money
for that purpose, it is useless to refer
a bond issue to them.
Senator Sullivan's bill is printed be
low. The bill on the 1913 statutes
limited the amount for which the
bonds could be issued to ONE per cent
and Senator Sullivan's bill changes
this to THREE per cent.
The assessed valuation of the real
and personal property in Mille Lacs
county is now $6,922,643. Three per
cent of this is $207,679.29. If Senator
Sullivan's bill passes the house, three
of our county commissioners can levy
this amount on the county without
consulting a single taxpayer in the
county in regard to his wishes in this
matter. Many of the farmers are
finding their taxes almost unbearably
heavy now, and these men would cer
tainly like to be" consulted on the
proposition of assuming an additional
burden. The bill:
Be it enacted by the legislature of
the seate of Minnesota:
Section 1. That section 1934 of the
general statutes of Minnesota of 1913
be and the same hereby is amended to
read as follows:
Section 1934.The board of county
commissioners of any county of the
state of Minnesota which does not al
ready own a court house, is hereby
authorized and empowered to issue the
bonds of said county to such an
amount as in its judgment may be
necessary, but not exceeding three per
cent of the assessed valuation of its
real and personal property, as fixed
Dy the last preceding assessment for
general taxation, for the purpose of
building a county court house in said
Sec. 2. That section 1939 of the
general statutes of Minnesota of 1913
be and the same is hereby amended so
as to read as follows:
Section 1939The board of county
commissioners of any county issuing
such bonds shall use the proceeds
thereof for the purpose of building a
county court house in such county,
and equipping the same, and for no
other purpose.
Sec. 3. This act shall take effect and
be in force from and after its passage.
VOLUME 45, NO. ff
Next of Lyceum Entertainments at
High School Auditorium on
Thursday, Feb. 3.
Six Celebrated Soloists, Male and Fe~
male, Make Up This Great
Musical Organization.
On Thursday, February 3, a concert,
which will be the fourth on the lyceum
course, will be given in the high
school auditorium by the Mendelssohn
Music club. This club comes to us
very highly recommended. It is made
up of six members, each one of whom
is a soloist.
Howard Everts is perhaps the best
known in the*musical field, having
been a soloist foT many years with
Innes' band, the Brooks orchestra and
other famous bands and symphony
Miss Dean Root, the first violinist,
studied for some years in New Yorlc
city and is considered one of the
most promising violinists in the north
The other violinist, Miss Joy Mc
Grath, is experienced in both lyceum
soloist work and as an orchestra
Miss Margaret Becker, the pianist
and soprano soloist, traveled a num
ber of seasons with a well known"
mixed quartet.
Miss Helen Dean, the cellist, is an
experienced soloist and John Burch,
the cornetist, has had ten seasons ol
band and orchestra concert work.
There is no doubt that they wilf
give an evening of pleasure to every
one attending, for while part of the
program is devoted to classical music,,
part of it is given over to playing:
modern, tuneful melodies.
There are still three numbers re
maining on the lyceum courseThe
Ongawas, a Japanese couple who puf
on an evening of music and drama, and
the Forest Players, who present "The
Chatterbox," besides the Mendelssohn^
Musical club.
You will save money by buying a
season ticket, which for one dollar will
admit you to all three entertainments,
as single admissions are fifty cents.
