Envy's Volcano Not Yet Extinct. It does not take a great deal to wash off the rouge of friendliness toward this city in St Paul, and the Pioneer Press keeps in tvpe some of the language of 1890, to be brought out when occasion demands. The Pioneer sounds the on set this mommg. Its editorial on the proposed location of a packing plant by the Armours in the New Brighton dis trict intimates that St. Paul will take Steps to prevent it, not because of any feeling of silly lealousy" against this city, but because the average man is afraid the parks, streets and alleys, public grounds and private residences of the capital will be overwhelmed by the stench from a rendering plant which will be located some miles farther from St. Paul than the plant of the same kind that city already has. The edi rtorlal is explained by the news item in he same issue which reports that Gen eral Flower has returned from Chicago, where he saw representatives of Ar mour, and that it is certain that the plant will come here^ but that it may be located at South St Paul, where, of course, it will make no smell at all. .The matter of location appears to have a marvelous effect upon the odors cre ated by a packing house. W under stand that the one at South St. Paul actually lmpro-v es the atmospheno con ditions. If St. Paul could only get another and bigger plant, especially at he expense of Minneapolis, the whole packing region would become a nosegay which people would go miles to smell. The Pioneer Press may be an espe cially good authority on some kinds of smells, but so far as a packing plant is concerned, one would prefer to rely on the testimony of health officers and persons of special education in hvgiene. They do not agree with the Pioneer Press at all regarding the effect of the sewage on the river, nor upon the re sultant evil influence upon the atmos phere. The fact of the matter is that a modern rendering plant, like a prop erly constructed garbage crematory, is practicall-y innocuous. putting the plant at South St. Paul, where there would be scarcely room to turn round, and none which to expand, the Ar mours might get themselves into a posi tion where they could not build prop erly, and where they would become an intolerable nuisance to themselves and others. But by taking plenty of land and building as they propose to build a i New Brighton, the pollution of either water or air becomes so reduced that it becomes a negligible quantity. A Missouri republican county conven tion indorsed the administration of Gov ernor Folk, a democrat Now a Kansas democratic county convention has in structed its nominee for the legislature to ignore party lines in favoring or op posing measures, and to look only to the welfare of the state. Will the old politi cal bosses who run us please note this familiar handwriting on the wall? The Third Term Will Not Down. President Boosevelt has been solemn renominated with or without his con sent by the Louisville Courier-Journal, the New York World, the New York Herald and the Washington Post, which no sooner had agreed upon forcing the candidacy upon him than they turned in and enthusiastically defeated him with Bryan. If the president had no higher mo tive than personal ambition he might be tempted to enter the lists again for the purpose of indicating his willing ness to endure the scorn of these false friends for the sake of triumphing over them, but the president construed and obeyed an instinct which led George Washington to place a limit upon the number of terms one man might serve in the presidency. That precedent has been very generally followed in this country except in legislative offices. The average of executive occupancy is less than wo terms. Governors and mayors when accorded two terms very generally step down and out. If by reason of personal ambition they seek the third it is usually hard sledding to attain the object. The plain purpose of Washington was to leave an example behind him of adhesion to republican principles. Eotation office is a cardinal tenet of a republican form of government. While hereditary execu tives have lost some of the appearance of evil in the old world it is apparent that the shearing of kings of their actu al power has contributed more than anything else to the acceptance of their life tenure. But the presidency of the United States cannot be shorn of its power. On the contrary its power grows constantly and its influence ad vances by leaps and bounds. The wis dom of Washington approves itself in contemplation of the possibilities of a permanent presidency such as prevails in Mexico. The presence there of a permanent executive exercising almost kingly prerogatives bears mute testi mony to the retrograde state of edu cation and general intelligence in Mexi co. The freedom with which we change public servants in this republic as em phatically testifies to our advanced civi lization which puts the country above the individual. W have no fear that the government will disintegrate when we change presidents. W have culti vated in the public schools the idea that any boy may be, president.

The collapse of the Milwaukee Ave nue state bank of Chicago reveals a state of moral turpitude almost incon ceivable in men charging themselves with the trusteeship of the funds of la boring men and their families. The bank appears to have been systemati cally looted of its deposits and the vast sums thus easily acquired applied to bolster unsteady real estate and build ing ventures. The absence of a moral right to spec ulate in the funds of a savings institu tion adds to the aggravation of the of fense, but it also adds to the responsi bility of the state. What was the bank examiner doing when the officers of the institution were withdrawing sums ag gregating millions from the deposits and invetting them in wildcat schemes? Is it possible under the laws of Illinois for the funds of a savings bank to be thus invested legally? If so the state has failed conspicuously of its duty to protect the depositors by adequate laws. If not the bank examiner has failed miserably of his duty to know where and how the funds of the bank were invested. Such a use of the funds of a savings institution would be impossible in the state of Minnesota without guilty con nivance on the part of the examiner and the officers of the bank. These are the days when the umbrella kleptomaniac has his worst attacks. Voluntary Fare Reduction. Western railroads make strenuous ob lections every time a reduction in pas senger fares is suggested, and claim that there is no profit in their passenger bus iness at present rates. They will offer proof of this to the Minnesota legisla ture next winter, when anti-pass legis lation will be coupled with propositions to make 2 cents a mile the maximum passenger fare. The action of some eastern railroads will furnish an argument for the reduc tion. Two-cent fares are quite the rule in the thickly settled portions of the east, and now the Pennsylvania road is out with an announcement of reduced rates on all its mileage east of Pitts burg and Erie. There will be a flat rate of 2 cents to the public, and what amounts to a 2-cent rate will be given thru transferable mileage books. After Sept. 1 there will be 1,000-mile tickets on sale for $20, good in the hands of any holder. These also will be good in eastern territory. The Penn sylvania's voluntarv action, coming so soon after the abolition of passes, makes a strong point in the argument that 2-cent fares are reasonable when everybody pays. Tt is argued by the western roads that fares must be higher in this more sparsely settled region. One needs only to travel a few days to be persuaded that the plea is fallacious. The west ern states have fewer trunk line roads, and the passenger travel per train mile is not far from as heavy as that on the eastern roads. There are not so many people in the west, but they travel far ther and oftener than their eastern cousins. Our population is more shift ing, and business trips are more fre quent and over greater territory. Trains going out of the twin cities to the north and west are loaded every day, and of ten overcrowded. This is on a 3-cent basis, with favored travelers getting 2 cents or even 2-cent rates with mile age books. A general reduction to a 2-cent rate would stimulate traffic in the west as it has in the east, and in a short time would doubtless result in greater gross earnings from passenger business, ac cording to the experience of eastern roads, which have tried it. The railroads of the northwest could do a great stroke of business in winning public favor by making such a reduction voluntarily, without waiti ng for coercive legisla tion. The Pioneer Press fears that our civic soenter will be located northeast, a little to this side of N ew Brighton. Illinois Likes the Primary. The party primary is indorsed by^the Chicago News, which declares that thru it party voters are now enabled to Rive expression to their views. Notwith standing the nomination of Lorimer, a great victory was obtained over the Lorimer faction in Chicago. Nearly all the cogs in his machine were smashed. The primary, which brought out a great vote, was perfectly handled, and the men who went to the polls had the sat isfaction of knowing that their votes were counted as cast. This is some thing which the former dark lantern caucus of Illinois fell far short of in suring. The experience of Illinois is like that of other states. The primary, while not a perfect bar to manipulation, is so far in advance of the caucus methods that no set of voters having tasted the sweets of partial enfranchisement from the thralWom of bosses would willingly go back to the old state of affairs. The occasional success pf a boss of pleasing manners and startling agility on the political slack wire is not an argument, against the system because bosses, whether of pleasing or dis pleasing manners, were constantly suc ceeding under the old system. Out of the primary Minneapolis got at the out set a most unfortunate nomination for the mayoralty. But it is observable that there has been constant improve ment in the character of the men who have asked o* this or other offices in the city since. '*Great stress is laid upon the bitterngs^6# tfce feuds cre^ledi by the primary, bVon the other hand, it should be remembered that a--state convention cost the republican party the governorship of Minnesota two years ago. That eo6veution was'the politicians ideal. Zt was preceded by enough political chicanery to exhibit in relief all the smart tricks the tfa'de. I ought to have been a won ^r^HJ. derf ul success, and it was, ife 'a* Tfcay.s But it was not a recommendation of the caucus system. A use for doalr it ashes has tieen*founa. M. M. Marden of Philadelphia* analyzed the furnace's output and found silica aluminum. Coal ash "really defers but little from aluminum clay, "'xfiat being the basis of coal ash,.it seems probable that this heretofore perplexing refuse might be commercially of value. He proposes to reduce coal ashes to a pulver ized material to enable that material to hold a binder so that this coal ashes mush might be molded. A short-fiber as bestos was found In West Virginia in great quantities, and ashes are now be ing molded and used for flreprooflng. The inspection on the hoof and rejec tion by Anthony Comstock of some of the New York varieties of "art" recalls the limerick of former days: There was an old sculptor named Phidias, Whose knowledge of art was invidious. He carved Aphrodite Without any nightie Which startled the purely fastidious. After Pittsburg's recent exploits' even Pay Templeton's nerve in leading one of its prominent citizens to the altar failed to explode a headline. Pittsburg hands' us too much copy in a bunch. Mr Corey of Pittsburg obtained his divorce, but it cost him $3,000,000 to do It "quietly Mr. Hartje, if he had known, would have given $3,000,000 for a little of this brand of "quiet." The high handshake Is said to be com ing in again. People with moderate in comes and average sense will cling to the glad hand such as father used to give the hardy voter. The Perkins folks, while swearing al legiance to the national republican party, do not consider Cummins necessarily a national "party" tot that kind of swearing. When Samuel Gompers and the Citi zens' Industrial association get together in a joint debate ordinary candidates for public attention will have to use posters. The destroying of the pier at Oyster Bay will prevent the president from land ing there, says an exchange Still the president has few peers at "landing." As four-fifths of the Russians cannot read either the douma's or the czar's manifestoes, it must be assumed that they are just having fun anyhow. A spry Kentucky court tried, con demned and hanged a man in fifty-five minutes. Lynchers will have to hurry to hold this record down. There is not a single druggist's permit to sell liquor in Marion county, Kansas. It is a region unusually free from snakes, take It either way. A period in the Russell Sage will has been found turned over. This flaw is likely to start a contest that will cost the estate dear. S Petersburg-announces that the rev olution has come. Aye, Nicholas* but not gone. And the insurance companies will not give even a dollar. AMUSEMENTS Old Favorite at the Bijou.

J". Jacobspn of Madison may yet re- I turn to the legislature, where he served with such distinction and such benefit to the state for six sessions of the lower house. There has been a strong demand for him to go back to the house and lead in reform legislation. So far he has withstood that demand, and his' succes sor in the house, Ellas Rachie, has al ready filed for another term. An effort was made to get him to run for the sen ate Senator O. Q. Dale of Madison urged him to run, offering to step aside, but Mr. Jacobson refused Progressive public men who have the welfare of reform measures at heart prefer to see the man from Lac qui Parle in the house, and they are renewing their efforts to bring him back. It would be a financial sac rifice to him, and one which he declared he would not make again, but" it is hoped that he will in the end take a larger view of the public interest, and consent to serve another term, in what will be one of the most important sessions in the history of the state. The passage of the tax amendment to the constitution this fall Will pave the way for some con structive tax legislation, and that one subject will be big enough to engage the entire attention of veterans like Jacobson. The taxation and the railroad issues- will be of ample importance to justify him in returning for a good winter's work. With a progressive republican governor like A L. Cole to co-operate, with Eber hart for lieutenant governor to nppolnt the senate committees, and with Jacob son in the house to keep things moving, something ought to be accomplished in that session It is really unnecessary for the demo crats to hold a convention in Minnesota this fall. They have already opened the headquarters for the fall campaign, a month before the delegates are to assem ble in Minneapolis, and all the delegates can do 1s to adopt the platform and nom inate the ticket prepared by Governor Johnson's managers The democratic campaign has opened in all respects ex cept the formality of a convention and a set speech from the governor A good sized campaign fund has already been raised, most of it by assessments on the governor's appointees in high places and low As told in The Journal else where, this fund Is being used to line up some of the republican papers for John ,son. The democratic leaders are very anx ious to have Winston of Minneap olis run again for lieutenant governor, realizing the strength which he gave Johnson in Hennepin and elsewhere. They would have no compunctions In naming Winston again, and turning down Judge Pendergast of Bemtdji, a democratic wheelhorse, whose nomination is strongly urged by his friends as a con cession to the north country. It is doubt fulr however, whether Mr. Winston can be prevailed upon this time tb take any sort of hand in the campaign. Since the muss over the surveyor generalship, rela tions between the governor and his for mer running mate have been consider ably strained It will be remembered that Mr. Winston indorsed Mike Bres lauer for appointment to that lucrative office-. He felt entitled to name a man for the place, after his sacrifice of time and money for the ticket, but he found that his choice was not going to be re spected When he learned to his satis faction that another man was slated for appointment, ^Mr Winston blocked the whole gamp by notifying *^the| governor tnWlie was"*, candidate--1 himsfelf. That left no alternative but to name Winston for surveyor general It is understood that the surplus fees which usually go Info the pocket of the surveyor general will this time be turned into tfve' dapi. palgn fund, and that is about all the con1 nect^on Mr% Winston desires to have with the pt?efcenl5 campaign. Speaking of campaign funds, it looks as tho the prohibitionists would soon be accused of running the real "boodle cam paign" in Minnesota They have a state fund of $40,000 already raised, and ex pect to -make it $50,000 before election". With this fund they will send out a small army of speakers Charles "W. Dorsett, the candidate for governor, will be out in a tally-ho with a party of orators during a large part of the campaign, and will cover a number of counties The prohi bition leaders expect to Increase theh vote for the state ticket, but they are trying especially to break Into the legis lature They have filed a number of pe titions, and will have some good men running in republican counties where no democrat attempts to be elected." The size of the prohibitionist fund shows the zeal which animates the party The lat est move Is to secure 50,000 voters' signa tures to a pledge, agreeing to support the prohibition ticket, or at least the nom inees for legislature.
