Our Chicago correspondence suggests
ft possibility and even a probability that
Senator Spooner may notjbave said it.
It will be rjemember^d'that the sena
tor is accuseoof having made threats
against the national ticket, because the
national committee had chosen to recog
nize the La Follette organization in
Wisconsin, after the supreme court deci
sion was rendered. Due account was
taken of the state "'of mind in which
Senator Spooner was at the time. The
developments were calculated to upset a
man's equilibrium a little bit, and the
undenied interview was accounted for
on that ground.
There seems to be a possibility, how
ever, that the'^senator has been mis
quoted. He is represented to have said
to the national organization at Chicago
that ho could find no fault with the na
tional committee if it should recognize
the a Follette element, adjusting itself
to the situation as the court has fixed it.
This seems a much more reasonable
,view for Senator Spooner to take, and
one which we hope he did take. W
only hope that he will establish the fact
that he was not correctly quoted in the
first. instance, and that the sentiments
attributed to him in the New York in
terview are ftot entertained by him.
Last Saturday the Pioneer Press, in
undertaking to show why Mr. Dunn
should have his full party support, in
troduced a long editorial on that sub
ject with the following paragraph:
To every true Amerioan, the esentlal
thing to be determined, at any and every
election wherein party principles and pol
icies are at stake, is the triumph of the
Sarty representing the principles to which
adheres, and the defeat of its oppo
nents. The person of the candidate is an
entirely secondary matter. The candidate
having been put in the field by a majority
vote, at delegate convention or primary,
becomes the representative of the ideas
to enforce which the party was called Into
existence. "The, ticket," than, becomes
to the true party man what his country's
flag Is to the same man in his broader*
capacity as an American citizen.
This paragraph is doubtless the result
of the exigencies of the situation. The
idea that the personality, to say noth
ing of the official record, of a candidate
is unimportant is born of an emergency.
The theory that the mistakes of the
party must be indorsed at all hazards
is something that the Pioneer Press,
when, not subjected to the stress of a
heated campaign, does not believe in.
The desertion of one party nominee is
not the desertion of the party in the
mind of the Pioneer Press when it is able
to express its sentiments uninfluenced
by such conditions as exist .in the re
publican party of Minnesota today.
For proof of that we have only to go
back a little over two weeksOct 5
in the columns .of the Pioneer PrSss,
where under the head "The.. Missouri
Situation" we find^he Pioneer Press
criticising the republicans of Missouri
for not rallying to the support of Folk,
not because Walbridge the republican
candidate, is not a good man, but be
ceuse Folk is a better one and stands
for something which the honest Mis
sonrian believes in. This is the way
the Pioneer Press talked about the
matter Oct. 5:
The republican machine in Missouri
threw away the grandest opportunity ever
offered of detaching a great tate from
the solid south and addifig it to the repub
lican column sin the vote for president.

whose boldness and success in unearthing
political corruption In St. Louis and at
Jefferson City, regardless of party ties,
marked him as eminently worthy of asso
ciation with Theodore Roosevelt on a non
partizan ticket. Evidence comes
from every quarter that the honest re
publicans of the state will stand by Folk
at the polls as they have stood by him
during his prosecution of the boodlers.
We appeal from the Pioneer Press,
drunk with' pattizanlzeal, to the Pio
neer Press, sober and in its right mind,
with regard to the proper attitude of the
voter toward unworthy candidates.

quotation was made has nothing to say

They Can't Forgive Him.
The democrats are never going to
forgive President Roosevelt for not
making a failure of the isthmian canal
project. One of the distinguished
democrats who is still indulging resent
ment on that account is Henry Watter
son. Mr. Watterson wrote a ''com-
panion piece" to an article by Charles
Jerome Bonaparte on Roosevelt for the
current Colliers. He arrives in the
course of his criticism, as do all the
president's critics of his canal policy,
at the question:
Why did not the president turn at
once, on the refusal of the Bogota gov-*
eminent to ratify the Hay-Herran
treaty, to th^Nj^^i^gAj^ p^ap a air

president to lose no time in closing with

Nobody understood the case better
than did the president and his astute
secretary of state, and if they had not
acted with that remarkable wisdom
which has preserved the country from
embarking upon an enterprise almost
certainly foredoomed to failure they
would today be the objects of the
severest criticism from their political
opponents, Mr. Watterson included, for
not having done just exactly that which
they have done.

A Played-Out Statute.
In his synopsis of the 4 per cent
gross earnings bill, to be voted on at
the coming election, Attorney General
Donahowef "calls attention to a queer
and antiquated feature of the present
law. I dates from war-time days and
has an almost medieval flavor.
The state never has brought legal

ings taxes, but there is a little matter
of $500,000 now in controversy with
the Great Northern. Suppose the state
should attempt to collect that amount.
The only way provided by law is for
the state treasurer to go down into the
railroad.yards and seize.,,movable prop

the same to satisfy the state's claim.

General Longstreet Defended Against

Helen D. Longstreet has written a book
partly in defense and greatly in praise
of her soldier husband, Lieutenant Gen
eral Longstreet. It bears the title Lee
and Longstreet at High Tide. The de
fense of General Longstreet is in answer
to charges revived by Major General John
B. Gordon's book, to the effect that Long
street was to blame for the loss of the
battle of Gettysburg and consequently for
the loss of the south's cause. Books by
growing out of sentiment. No doubt"Mf^
Longstreet has been actuated by her love'
of her husband in the preparation of the
present work, but that has not blinded
her to the fact that a defense must be
convincing, more so than the charges an
swered. She has, therefore, attacked the
problem as a careful lawyer would gon*
to the records, and submitted the evidence
in a carefully marshaled manner, which,
it seems to us, would carry conviction!
Certainly the soldier reader, whether of
the north or south, will find Mrs. Long

Who Is the best authority as to R. C.
Dunn's pre-corivention campaign? At the
time of the convention one Joel P. Heat
wole was supposed to know something
about it. Referring to the claim that
Dunn had enough votes to nominate him
without Hennepin and Ramsey, the North
field News says:
The republican state central committee has
issued a statement saying that Mr. Dunn did not
need the delegation from Hennepin county to
nominate him. From what source did Messrs.
Martin and Mitchell obtain this information? If
Mr. Martin .in,,this
lack^o knowledge a where he
was at so far as the delegates were concerned
when he was in charge of the Collins forces.
that Mr. Dunn had enough delegates
to nominate prior to the TOte upon the question
of seating the delegation from Hennepin, the
votes of Hennepin and Ramsey counties in one
block would have given the opposition great
opportunities for trades which might have
changed the situation, and Mr. Dunn was not ab
solutely safe until that strength was broken.
In other words, according to Mr. Dunn's
pre-convention manager, the Hennepin
delegation had to be unseated in order to
make him "absolute^ safe."
The Bemidji Sentinel, edited by H. G.
Hays, a close friend of the two gentlemen
he refers to, speaks/feelingly as follows:
Before the state convention both Mr. Heat
wole and Mr. Verity were very often told that
Mr. Dunn's nomination meant the disruption of
the republican party in the state. Did Heatwole
"for the good of the party" or for any other
reason turn Mr. Dunn down? Nit. When Mr.
was told that Mr. Heatwole's friend in the
committee was a menace to the party after the
convention, did Mr. Dunn turn him down? Yep.
A Winona correspondent writes The
Journal that there is much feeling
among republicans of that city and vicin
ity against Dunn. This is due largely to
the nominee's attitude toward Governor
Van Sant, which is resented by all the
governor's old friends. As the corre
spondent says: "They can no more swal
low the Dunn pill thaji they could a
quart of quinine." In proof of this he
cites the reception Dunn met with when
he talked at the Cannon meeting. In his
preliminary remarks Mr. Dunn said he
might visit Winona again before election
day. Before he sat down it was evident
that the Princeton gentleman had re
ceived all of the chilly Winona air that
he cared to during the present campaign.
At any rate, his list of dates does not in
clude the gate city.
The-Hawley Herald calls the Pioneer
Press down in lively fashion for its ac
count belittling the anti-Dunn club or
ganized in that village. The St. Paul or
gan had a so-called special from Hawley
declaring that the club consisted of "threo
disgruntled republicans and a handful of
democrats." The Herald prints the list
of forty-six charter members of the club,
every one declaring himself to be a re
publican, and challenges the Pioneer Press^
or any other supporter of Dunn tofindone'
in the list who is not a republican. Thar
report of the Dunn meeting at Hawley as
printed in the Pioneer Press is also de
clared to be a wild fabrication. The meet
ing, according to the Herald, was a frosty
and the larger part of the audience waa?
composed, ot,Jthe_anti-Dunn club.
