A great dam,which has been
under construction for nearly two
years,in the Mississippi river at
Minneapolis,was completed Satur
day. By this,power will be devel
oped to operate the Twin City
Street Kailway and other indus
tries,as well for lighting purposes.
This is said to be one of the great
est engineering feats of the world,
and even surpasses that one of a
similar nature in the Niagra.
The legislature has seen fit not to
appropriate for an exhibition at the
Omaha exposition. This is an affect

color to an attempt to economize.This
state has an ambition to be progress

and degree of excellence that the peo
pie may be attracted towards it and
become interested it its advancement.
Every other westenfstate will be
represented,and wont it appear small
that Minnesota, under a republican
administaation could not afford to
approrpriate for its own advancment.
Information originating from a
creditable source,is that there will
be numerous petitions presented
to the county commissioners favor
ing the establishing of a county
poor farm. The secretary of state
board of charities being in a
position to observe the best system
for proper care of the poor, dis
courages the poor farm plan.
There are a great many expenses
that are incurred in the manage
ment of a poor farm which should
be taken in consideration by the
people before they petition for an
institution of this character.
The Signal,of Bigelow thinks
the county commissioners are
willfully liberal to the county
poor,and states that one family
with a husband holding mortga
ges in his favor,drew upward of
$70.00 relief this winter. The
Signal says: We have ample rea
son to believe that there are hun
dreds of honest men and women,
struggling along,toiling the year
around,in order to keep up their
end of the string,supporting large
families and a portion of their tax
money blown in to help feed peo
ple in some instances,who lay
around in the shade all summer,
and are really worth more than
the parties who help buv their
No action resulting from the reso
lution of the County Commissioners
relative to Ex-Auditor Kendlen, has
yet been taken. It appears that there
is no intention of'misappropriation of
county funds. There seems to be a
difference in construing the law, Mr.
Kendlen considers he has authority
to uphold him and vice versa with
the Commissioners. As to the fee
for tax certificates, it appears that Mr
Kendlen followed the universal prac
tice and the same is being charged at
at this time, and remains for the leg
islature to remedy. If Mr. Kendlen
has exceeded the amount allowed
for clerk hire he certainly should be
compelled to refund.
(From Our Regular Correspondent.)
President McKinley is standing
strictly by his rule, requiring each
state congressional delegation to
unite in endorsing the men to be ap
pointed to office from that state, not
withstanding numerous requests from
prominent republicans to make ex
ceptions thereto. He has fully made
up his mind that the rule is a good
one, and its perfect fairness cannot
be questioned by anybody. He feels
that the senators and representatives
are better qualified to decide who
ought to be appointed among the ap
plicants from their state than he is,
and intends to insist upon their do
Taken all in all there is less howl
ing from the democrats on account of
the new tariff bill than was expected,
and there is much less fault finding
among republicans than there was
when the McKinley bilJ was first re
ported to the house. The Dingley
tarifiTbill will be taken up by the
house next week and pushed through
without any unnecessary delay.
Probably because "what's every
body's business is nobody's business,"
the respectable patent lawyers of
Washington have ignored the exis
tence for some years of disreputable
concerns engaged in the business of
procuring patents, but the evil has
grown to tuch an extent that they
have retained, to protect their own
good names and the honest inveulors.
Mr. Wm, Small, attorney-at-law, Me
Gill building, Washington, D. C.,
and he requests all inventors, news
paper publishers and others who
have been deceived and defrauded
by and through false and fraudulent
representations, specious devices, in
cluding offers and awards of prizeB,
medals of honor, certificates of stock,
etc., of alleged procurers and sellers
of patents, to communicate with him.
If there are any such among your
readers they should do so at once.
Secretary Wilson is already in
numerous ways proving the wisdom
of President McKinley in selecting a
practical farmer for the head of the
agriculiural department. He knows
what the interests of the farmers are,
and to what extent the general gov
ernment can serve those interests.
One of the first requests made of
President McKinley by Secretary
Wilson was that care should be taken
in making the selections for U. S.
consuls in the a^ icultural sections of
the world to get
Postmaster General Gary announ
ced this week that after mature con
sideration the administration had de
cided that all postmasters should be
allowed to serve a term of four years
unless they gave cause for their re
moval. This matter was before the
president ana cabinet and all sides of
it was discussed before a conclusive
decision was reached, the idea being
that it was of more importance that
the cc'untry should know exactly
what policy would be followed than
that any particular line of policy
should be adopted. And that is cne
of the very best of the many good
features introduced by this adminis
taation. Instead of trying to mystify
the public, President McKinley tries
to keep it informed of his intentions,
and as soon as a thing has been de
termined upon it is made public.
This has'been the rule ever since the
first member of President McKinley's
cabinet was selected. That it is a
good rule cannot be doubted.
The credentials of the three gen
tlemen appointed to the senate by
the respective governors of Oregon,
Kentucky and Florida are now "be
for the committee of privileges and
elections, and the three gentlemen
have bee^n granted the freedom of the
senate chamber. While nobody
knows what the committee will decide
to do or how soon it will act, the gen
eral impression is that the committee
will not be in a hurry, and that the
Kentucky and Florida legislatures
are likely to be given a chance to set-v
tie two of the cases. The Oregon
case will turn upon the construction
placed upon the assembling of mem
bers of legislature and their failure
to organize. If construed as a meet
ing of the legislature, Mr. Corbett
would have no chance at all other
wise, he has a chance, but it isn't any
too good at best owing to- recent
en familiar with
agriculture, in order that they may
be able to make report? that will be
of practical benefit to the American
farmers. Mr. Wilson thinks the right
sort of consuls could get valuable in
formation for grain growers from por
tions of Europe and in South Ameri
ca, and that the culture of the sugar
beet would increase more rapidly if
we had careful reports of an intelli
gent study of their culture in Ger
many, France and Austria.
