\^.S^ GRACE A. DUNN, Publisher Audience of 2500 Crowds Auditorium Hundreds Fail to Gain Admission. GOVERNOR PREUS SPEAKS Senator Receives Oration Delivers Masterly Address Discusses Agricultural Program. Senator Frank B. Kellogg on Wed nesday evening delivered the opening address of his campaign to an audi ence of 2500 in the St. Cloud armory. The auditorium was packed to the doors every seat was taken before the first speaker arose and hundreds failed to gain admission. It was an enthusiastic meeting and Senator Kel logg was accorded a great ova tion. When the white-haired senator acknowledged Governor Preus' intro duction, the audience rose to its feet with a storm of applause. Delegations were present from the Twin Cities, Princeton, Mora, Milaca, Elk River and many neighboring vil lages. On the platform with Senator Kel logg and Governor Prcus were most of the other republican state candi dates, Clifford Hilton, Mike Holm, R. P. Chase, Henry Rines, Louis Collins, TIarold FRANK B. KELLOGG DELIVERS ADDRESS IN ST. CLOUD ARMORY Knutson and Ivan Bowen. Allen A. Atwood, chairman of the Stearns county committee, presided. Senator Kellogg was introduced by Hon. R. B. Brower and Governor J. A. O. Preus. Jake Preus himself was most en thusiastically greeted by the audience. Our governor is exceedingly popular with the people of this state who ad mire him for his clean-cut American ism and his straightforward method of meeting his opponents. He has a reputation for fighting in the open and he does not lack courage to back up his convictions. In introducing the senator Governor Preus said he knew of no man who had made better use of his opportunities than had Frank B. Kellogg and those opportunities were only such as are open to every farmer's boy in Min nesota. Frank Kellogg, who spent his boyhood days on a farm in Olm sted county, knows what poverty is because his parentis were then in straitened circumstances. Like so -many of our really great men the ed ucation which he received in the coun try school, the only school he ever at tended, was most meagre. He rose to the top of his profession of law through hard work and honest en deavor. He is today one of the best educated men in this state but he has educated himself and for that achieve ment he deserves thi greatest credit. His career should be an inspiration to every boy in the state. As was expected Senator Kellogg devoted the greater portion of his ad dress to a discussion of the agricul tural legislation that has been before congress during the last 18 months. He did not spend his time in describ ing the difficulties that have confront ed the farmers during the period of depression through which the country has just passed because they, like most other people, already know how try ing conditions have been. He out lined a program which would tend to greatly improve conditions in the in dustry of agriculture and stated clear ly what had been done by the last con gress in carrying out this program. Senator Kellogg said in part: "While quacks and demagogues will tell you that if they were in congress they would immediately legislate uni versal prosperity to the farmers, here is what the government can do and should do: "Relieve the farmer as much as pos sible from the burden of taxation. "Provide for a good system of farm credits at reasonable rates of interest. "Furnish adequate and cheaper transportation. "Promote diversified forming. "Encourage co-operative market- ing." "There is no subject to which con gress and the president have given more careful consideration during the last 18 months than the condition of agriculture. An excellent program of agricultural legislation has been car ried through. I had the honor of in troducing and had charge in the sen ate of several of these important bills: (1) The emergency tariff law for the benefit of agriculture, which placed a tariff duty on farm products. (2) The law extending the powers of the War Finance corporation so as to relieve the credit situation among the farmers and provide a foreign market for their products. (3) Law appropriating $35,000,000 to aid the Federal Farm Loan banks to sell bonds at 5% per cent without any increase in the rates of interest to the farmer. (4) Co-operative marketing bill, authorizing the farmers to organize co-operative marketing associations, in order to reduce the cost of market ing. (5) The packer control law. (6) The law regulating future *JSe -hi |?^r^ Mmn. Historical 8pifcf YfTfty -^|S FRANK B. KELLOGG trade in grain. (7) Bill authorizing the president to appoint a representative of agri culture on the Federal Reserve board. (8) Federal aid in the construction of highways, relieving rural taxpay ers of a considerable burden. "Contrary to some statements that have been made an amendment to the War Finance Corporation act, which I introduced, received the endorsement of the American Farm Bureau and other leading farm organizations, and was passed by practically a unanimous vote of the senate and house. "Under it immediate relief was given and the War Finance corpora tion has advanced to the aid of market ing farm products over $284,000,000, about $12,000,000 of which was ad vanced in Minnesota. "I introduced a bill which 'passed congress authorizing the president to appoint a farmer on the Federal Re serve board. The greatest industry in the country should be represented on this board. "I had charge in the senate of the co-operative marketing bill which was enacted in the form requested by the various farm organizations of the country. In my opinion no more im portant legislation has been passed during this session of congress. "The difference between what the farmer receives and what the public pays for farm products is not only un fair to the farmer but a tremendous burden upon the consuming public. What is needed is co-operation in mar keting farm products. No state in the Union has made greater steps in this direction than Minnesota. This de velopment is still in its infancy.

The driver of the Aitkin bus of the Jefferson Highway Transportation company and two passengers miracu lously escaped serious injury last Sat urday evening, when the bus capsized on the Scenic highway. The heavy fog on Saturday evening almost hid the road. When about two miles below Zimmerman on the Scenic highway the driver of the southbound Aitkin bus turned a little too far to the right and the bus plunged over the eight-foot embankment. The bus landed on its right side so it was im possible to open the door. The driver and two pasengers made their exit through a window. Fortuately neither the one woman or either of the men were seriously injured although all of them sustained a few minor bruises and were some what cut by the glass. The driver and ispassengers were picked up by a passing car and taken to Elk River. John W. Eppish. John W. Eppish of Orrock passed away on Saturday, September 30, at 11:55 a. m., in the Loring Park sana torium in Minneapolis. His death re sulted from diabetes and other com plications. Mr. Eppish had not been in good health for some time. On September 14 he disposed of his personal proper ty and moved to Excelsior to make his home with his daughter and son-in law, Mr. and Mrs. Christian A. Yven. His condition became so much worse that he entered the sanatorium on Friday, September 29. On the follow ing day he died. Funeral services were conducted Tuesday from St. Edward's church by Father Mayer. Interment was in the Catholic cemetery in Princeton. John Eppish was born in Bavaria, Germany, on October 31, 1857. For the past 49 years he has resided on his farm in Sherburne county. He is survived by one daughter, Mrs, Christian A. Yven of Excelsior, j^M^^%k#%&l to whom the sympathy of the com munity is extended. Mr. Eppish was a quiet, hard-work ing man. He was a good neighbor and a true friend. He will be greatly missed in the commuity in which he resided for so many years. Tom Olsen Goes to Elk River. Tom Olsen drove through Princeton Wednesday afternoon on his way to Elk River. Tom has been employed in the First National Bank of Milaca for several years past and has now accepted a position as cashier in the First National bank of Elk River. Gibson-Mathis. A quiet wedding occured at the home of Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Mathis on Saturday evening when their daughter, Beulah Jesephine, was unit ed in marriage to Oliver Clifford Gib son. Only members of the family and a few intimate friends were present at the ceremony. The Rev. W. C. Bes selievre Of the Congregational church officiated. The bride is well known in this community where her parents have resided for many years. She attended the local schools and has always taken much interest in the church work in the village. She is a charming young. girl who has many friends in Prince ton. The groom conducts a ranch in South Dakota. Immediately after the ceremony the bridal couple departed for Minneap olis, where they will spend a short honeymoon. They will then return to Princeton and will in a few weeks be at home on Mr. Gibson's ranch in South Dakota. Their friends in Princeton wish them years of peace and happiness. MEMBERS OF COUNCIL HOLD MONTHLY MEETING Creamery Manager Presents Petition for Laying Sewer Wilkes is Appointed Constable. The village council held its regular meeting, Tuesday eveing, October 3, at 9 p. m., with all members present. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. Archie' Jones appeared before the council with a request that the village construct a sewer joining the cream ery with First street. A petition on Wednesday was circulated among those owning property bordering on the street where the sewer should be laid to ascertain how many were in favor of the project. The canvas has not yet been completed. Clair Smith, chief of the local fire department, asked the council to pur chase 200 feet of new fire hose. Rep resentatives of the W. S. Nott com pany of Minneapolis and the Bilateral Fire Hose company of Chicago were present to exhibit samples of their goods. The matter was thoroughly discussed and it was decided to defer the purchase of the hose until a later date. Clair I. Kaliher made application for the erection of a brick building on first street east of the Foltz feed store which was granted. A. C. Wilkes was appointed consta ble to succeed Wm. J. Finn. Mr. Wilkes* bond was placed at $500.00. The usual number of bills were au dited and allowed and as there was no further business on hand the meeting was adjourned. Rev. S. A. Lumb to Remain Here. The members of the Methodist church of Princeton will undoubtedly be pleased to hear that Rev. S. A. Lumb is to be with them for at least another year. GOOD ROADS WILL BE OF BENEFIT TO DAIRY SHOW Thousands Will Use Improved High ways to Reach Big St. Paul Exposition. Minnesota's good roads will prove a 4big contributing factor to the suc cess of the National Dairy exposition, October 7 to 14, at the state fair grounds. W. E. Skinner, general manager'of the big show, mae predic tion after traveling hundreds of miles this summer on the trunk highways, to extend his organization plans to every locality. "Many cities and towns sent good delegations to the 1921 exposition," said Mr. Skinner. "This year nearly every community will send its repre sentation in a score or more of auto mobiles. Some cities will start as many as 1,000 cars off for the national show. It is a genuine testimonial to the highway development in Minne sota in the last couple of years and an important endorsement to the com paratively new highway program. The state is to be congratulated on this phase of rural advancement." Reports from all sections indicating excellent road conditions, Mr. Skinner urged individuals to form special par ties wherever big caravans are not al reay arranged. "Don't wait for your neighbors to make the start," he said, "step on the starter and bring them along." Appreciating the importance of ade quate farm development, Manager Skinner assigned the Minnesota High way department liberal space without charge to show road plans and prog ress at the exposition building. PRINCETON, MILLE LACS COUNTY, MINNESOTA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1922 COMMISSIONERS ARE IN SESSION County Board Convenes Robert Bain of Borgholm Fills Carl Eck- dall's Chair. WILL PROVIDE FOR PARKS Resolution Passed to Submit to Voters Question of Best Method of Caring for Poor. The county board met at 11 o'clock with all members present. The min utes of the previous meeting as pub lished in the official paper were read and approved with the exception of a notice for the school meeting to have been held in the Heidelberger school house on October 2. The meeting was to be held at 7 o'clock in the af ternoon instead of in the forenoon as was stated in the printed notice. A resolution was passed authorizing the county auditor to call the meeting at 7 o'clock in the evening of October 21 and to mail copies of the notice to the clerks of each of tihe districts ef- fe^e- Robert Bain of Borgholm, who has been appointed to fill the unexpired term of Carl Eckdall, met with the other commissioners for the first time. His duties as a county commissioner will not prove a great burden to Mr. Bain who is chairman of his town board and has had some experience in such matters. A communication from the Minne sota tax commission was read. The commission has compared the sales data and the assessed valuation of the land in Mille Lacs county with other "counties in the state and has decided that it will be necessary to increase by 20 per cent the assessed value of the platted land in the town ships in this county. No increase will be made in the villages or towns. A communication received from a state inspector of public buildings in formed the commissioners that he deemed it necessary for the county to erect a better building for housing its poor than that now in use on the farm. After some discussion it was decided to submit to the voters at the general election this fall the question of changing from the county system to the town system of providing relief for the poor. A motion to this effect was made by Axell, seconded by Le vau and carried by a unanimous vote. A motion made by Bain, sec onded by Newton and carried by a unanimous vote provided that hereaf ter all plats of lake shore property in Mille Lacs county shall have certain portions of them set aside for public parks, thus providing the public with a ready and reasonable access to the lakes. This action of the board is in keeping with the policy so strongly advocated by Governor Preus who be lieves that private property owners 'should not be allowed to monopolize our lake shores to the exclusion of the public. The resolution provided that the public highways on the lake shore plats should be at least 50 feet wide. The plat of "Shakopee Shores," comprising lots 3 and 4 of section 23, township 42, range 27 was presented to the couty board, examined and ap proved. A motion was passed providing that $300 be set aside as a contingent fund for the county attorney. After auditing a number of bills the commissioners adjourned. Returns From Encampment. James N. Divan, a veteran of the civil war, returned home Friday even ing from a three-days attendance at the national encampment of the Grand Armp of the Republic at Des Moines, Iowa. Mr. Divan states that the citi zens of Des Moines were very hospita ble and every convenience and atten tion was shown the old soldiers. There were 20,000 veterans at the encampment and the parade that they formed in the streets of the city was three miles long. Mr. Divan was so fortunate as to meet five of his comrades whom he had not seen for many years. Thous ands of other old veterans must have had similar experiences. The encampment in 1923 will be at Milwaukee. Girls of Sixties Picnic at Park. The girls of the sixties took ad vantage of the Indian summer weath er and motored to the tourist park on Tuesday. A picnic dinner was spread on the tables in the pine grove and the party did full justice to the well packed baskets. Coffee was made on the campers' stove in the cook house and served with the dinner. The girls entertained as their guests, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Byers and J. A. Borden. The high wind gave promise of an old-fashioned sand storm and after dinner the party repaired to the home of Mrs. Eva Keith. The afternoon was spent pleasantly in chatting and re calling the history of the little club organized in 1910 with twelve mem bers. Two of the members have since then passed away, Mrs. Emma Cordi ner and Mrs. Kate Applegate. Two "A^3i^*-rl^T. ^^^^g^M^ksss^sMM^M^. ^iJ^lMl ^kf&^SFi&fe ^w. p&jjgPjpfaiM^jp^tfiteg other friends have been taken into the circle to maintain the original 12. Mrs. Etta Libby of Seattle and Mrs. Ellen Howard, who is visiting in New Jersey, were the only resident mem bers absent. They were greatly missed. Mrs. Waitie Petterson of" Long Beach gave her old friends much pleasure by meeting with them. A box of delicious' chocolates, the gift of Mrs. S. S. Petterson, was much appreciated by the girls. They also thoroughly enjoyed the lolipops pre* sented by another friend, a gentleman, who presumed to refer to the club members as a group of flappers. The picnic, as all the parties of the girls of the sixties, was thorugh ly enjoyed by everyone present. Princeton vs. Elk River. The Princeton High school football team scored its second victory of the season over the Elk River team last Friday. This game was staged at Elk River on the fair grounds and added an especial attraction for fair visitors on that day. The contest was very similar to the one played in Princeton three weeks ago, the teams playing very evenly until toward the end of the third quar ter when Princeton scored. Through out the remainder of the contest neither team tallied so the final count was 6 to 0 in favor of the orange and black. Enjoy Wiener Roast. On Monday evening a large com pany, about 150 in all, assembled in the woods on Oscar Stark's farm for a wiener roast. Huge bonfires were lighted and for two hours the wieners popped and the apples sizzled. After playing around the fires and singing songs for an hour or so the company dispersed having most thoroughly en joyed the evening. MAGNUS FOLWICK IS ACCIDENTALLY SHOT Bullet From Companion's Rifle Pierces His Side, Enters Lung and Causes Death. A hunting accident which occurred on Sunday afternoon about 10 miles south of Elk River resulted in the death of Magnus Folwick, a resident of Bogus Brook township. Mr. Folwick, in company with a friend, Andrew Johnson, was hunting squirrels in the woods about four miles west of the Jefferson highway. Johnson accidently discharged his rifle when his companion was but a few feet in front of him. The bullet en tered Folwick's left side and lodged in his lung. He died in about 20 minutes. Funeral services were held Wednes day in the Norwegian Lutheran church in Milaca. Interment was in the Vandle Brook cemetery. Magnus Folwick and his family moved to Bogus Brook two years ago last March from South Dakota. Since that time he has been engaged in farming. This spring and summer he and a friend, Andrew Johnson, have devoted some time to laying tiling in the territory between Elk River and Zimmerman. This accident is particularly sad because Magnus Folwick was only 43 years of age and was the father of nine children, the oldest of whom is only 14 years of age. He is survived by his wife, six daughters, Magda, Helga, Ingred, Ma ble, Agnes and Edna three sons, Mel vin, Floyd and Ernest four brothers, Sivern and Ole who reside in Bogus Brook, Egmar of Longville, John who lives in California one sister and his mother who reside in Norway. Mrs. Folwick and her nine children certainly deserve much sympathy and consideration. STATE CONVENTION TO BE HELD IN BRAINERD Minnesota Sunday School Association Will Hold its 64th Annual.

The evening was spent most pleasantly. Such in formal social gatherings are always thoroughly enjoyable. Sherburne County Fair. Sherburne county had an unusually good fair this year. There were many exhibits in all departments and they were of high grade. In the stock barn were several horses that drew blue ribbons at the state fair. The poultry exhibit was one of the best ever seen at a county fair in this sec tion of the country. There were three township or club exhibits, all of which were very good. Livonia was awarded the first prize. The raffling of the Chevrolet car created much interest. R. L. Hunt of St. Cloud held the lucky number. Marriage Licenses Issued.

This big exposition should be of interest to every citizen of Minne sota, especially to those residing in the rural communities. Mille Lacs county, as a great dairying region, is vitally interested in the show. Nearly every county in the state is organizing large delegations to at tend the exposition. Wednesday, Oc tober 11, is the day chosen for the Mille Lacs county delegation. Have you made plans to join the party? If you have not, do so at once. According to the present plans the cars will start from Milaca at 7:30 in the morning and will reach Princeton about 8:15. Princeton is in the center of one of the best farming commun ities in Minnesota. We transact as much business here as in any village of our size in the whole state. Let us get together and make a good show ing at the National Dairy exhibit. We can give Mille Lacs county and Prince ton some good advertising. The Union has been publishing articles on the National Dairy show for the past six weeks. Everyone of our readers must know there will be much to be seen and heard at that ex position that will be of inestimable1 value to those engaged in the dairying industry. The show as a whole will* be a great educational institution for men and women engaged in every oc cupation. No one who can make ar rangements to attend the exposition' should miss seeing it. A National Dairy show does not come to our state every year. The president of the Minnesota Federated Women's clubs is urging the women of the state to visit the show. There they will get many valu able pointers in regard to the care of the milk products which constitute such an important part of the chil dren's diet. It is said better fed fam ilies will result in better citizens. Mr. Christgau of Owatonna ad dressed a booster meeting in the Com mercial club rooms last Friday even ing. The meeting was called to arouse interest in the dairy show and to impress upon the people in this vicinity the benefits to be derived from attending it. Mr. Christgau stated that the world's dairy show is to be held in this country next year, and it is just possible that the exposition might come to St. Paul if this national show can be made a great success. The speaker stated that the farmers need not be worried about overcrowd ing the market with dairy products. The demand far exceeds the supply. He also emphasized the point that dairying is a profitable industry be cause it gives the farmer a steady in come. Mr. Christgau advocates the estab lishment of the cow testing associa tions. If the largest returns are to be received, the farmer must know fairly accurately just what his cowsr are producing and the cost of the pro duction. In closing his address Mr. Christ gau referred again to the dairy show and stated that 100,000 visitors were expected from Wisconsin and almost as many from North Dakota. There will be a large attendance from every section of the United States. The peo ple in Minnesota should not neglect their opportunities just because the show is held almost in their own door yards. The tickets to the National dairy show are 50 cents apiece and one ticket will admit the bearer to every exhibit on the grounds. Tickets may be secured from Archie Jones, mana ger of the Princeton Co-operative* creamery. l.
