Governor Hanna has stood back of
the prohibition law, both state anjl
national, because his personal views
his private business, political and offi
cial experiences have convinced him
temperance and prohibition are pre
ferable to the open saloon. He has
,supported the enforcement of the pro
hibition and other laws. He took an
oath to do that. He would have been
false both to himself and the people
had he done less.
Should Governor Hanna be penaliz

obligation he assumed at his inaugura

enforcement of the law.
If the believers in prohibition, In
decency and in law and order in North
Dakota get together, the blind plg
gers. the law breakers, the dive keep

forts to saddle the saloon, with all Its
prostituting and demoralizing in
fluences, on this fair state.
North Dakota's best interests can
not be jeopardized, nor the physical
and moral welfare of the youth be
endangered by permitting the resub
missionists to make any headway In
their efforts to introduce the liquor
traffic Into North Dakota, where no
saloon has ever legally existed since
the earliest infancy of the state.
Those who stand for the things
which are right, and believe in the
enforcement of the laws on the North
Dakota statutes, should see that Gov

Doing Away With The Brain.
Memphis Commercial Appeal:

that the brain is not indispensable
and serves only to fill up the skull.
Three recent cases tending to show
this are reported by Dr. Etienne Des

Seine, as having comeunder his per
sonal observation.
A 12 year old boy, in care of Dr.
Daniel Molliere of Lyons, was stated
to have lost a bowl of brains from
falling over a stair rail and fractur

Dr. Destot himself dressed for sev
eral months the wound of a mason
who had the left frontal bone and left
frontal lobe of the brain torn away
while mounting a large cornice stone.
The patient was unconscious for fif
teen days but regained his senses, and
showed no impairment of faculties.
The third case was that of an Arab
In care of Dr. Bruch in Algiers. The
patient had come to the hospital with
a wound on the left eyelid and a de
pression of the skull, due to a severe
hammer blow, but for two months he
showed no sign of brain trouble, when
he became suddenly unconscious and
died. Post mortm examination brought
the astonishing discovery that he had
been living with no brains left.

Filipinos Weave Mats.
Exchange: Few people realize the
number of mats that are woven each
year in the Philippines and how ex
tensive is the domestic commerce in
them. The "petate" or "banig" is
made in towns here and there through
out the isuands. In some places strips
of the young buri palmleaf are used.
In other towns the mats are woven
from strips of pandan leaves.
In the Visayan islands and Min
danao a great many are made from
the stalk of a sedge called tikug. The
women in towns where mats are made
add a considerable amount of money
to the family income through the pro
duction and sale of petates.
The mats are bought up by traders
and small merchants and are distrib
uted by them throughout, the islands,
One of the most decorative mats is
that which comes from the island of
Romblon. It has a very fine border
which gives a lace effect and is an ex

Mandan Republican: In a circular
sent out by the opponents of Governor
L. B. Hanna, it is claimed that he is
responsible for the fact that the bank
assessment of Cass county, which was
turned in by the county board at 25
per cent, was not raised by the state
board. Also that the assessment of
Burleigh county, which was equalized
by the county board at 70 per cent was
not lowered. This looks very much
like a very stale joke. Governor Han
na Is only one of five on the state
board of equalization, and his vote is
only equal to that of any other one
man on the board. Why don't they
attack the whole board, if there have
been discrepancies? Such tactics as
the above will only tend to increase
the great majority for our governor
on June 24, as the voters of the en
tire state know that L. B. Hanna has
made the best governor North Dakota
has had for years and they don't
intend to throw away what they
know Is good for the sake of following
a bubble that is sure to burst.
McVille Journal: It is to laugh to
read the political "dope" hashed up
and put into print by the anti-Hanna
press bureau how the "governor is
losing graund." The fact of the mat
ter iB, Mr. Hanna is gaining friends
every day and the majority of the peo
ple do not believe that a change in the
governorship should be made this
year for it simply welcomes a handi
cap to all the good that has been
started for the interest of the state.
Logical, broad minded business men
and farmers of this state do not ap
prove of a change in the governor's
office so soon. Mr. Hanna has been in
the governor's office but seventeen
months and though he has begun
several important benefits for the state,
yet some need his further attention.
But there is a certain class of dis
appointed office seekers who are
stirring up political annimosity among
the voters in order to defeat Mr. Han
na and -thus reap their reward. All
this opopsition talk is nothing more
or less than a political scheme to shy
the voter's mind to some other candi
date, but the voters are not going to
be so easily mislead. Mr. Hanna has
made a most able governor and a rec
ord for the state that cannot be made
light of. He is now asking for an
endorsement and should be given an«
other term.
Ross News: Mr. Burdick is going
before the people of the state with the
platform that he will reduce the legal
rate of. Interest, but if any thinking
man will only stop and consider for
a moment, he will readily see that
even if Mr. Burdick is elected governor
he has no power to pass such legisla
tion, and therefore the statement is
issued simply to try and fool the peo
ple who are not onto the game. If
the rate of interest is reduced in this
state it will be only by a law passed
by our legislature, and until the time
comes for the governor's signature, he
has nothing to do with it. Of course,
we presume that Burdick would npt
dare to veto such a bill if it is passed
by the senate and house. Neither
would Mr. Hanna or any other gov
ernor we might elect. Don't be fooled
by such a ruse. If the people want the
rate of interest reduced they should
look to the election of representatives
who favor that plan. The great howl
the Burdick followers are making over
this interest business sounds very nice
to some, but to a thinking man it
sounds like a noise to get votes.

for their guns and that the brownies must use butter-
They told the brownies to be sure to bring with them all the buttercups
that they possibly could and that they would gather daisies for themselves.
"At last the time came, and the brownies arrived, carrying just as many
buttercups as possible. In fact, they were almost completely hidden by the
flowers they carried.
'What a delightful Idea this Is,' said one of the brownlee to one of
elves. i
"'Yes we thought it would be nice,' said the elf, 'and, besides, it will be
nice for the guests we have invited to see the pretty yellow and white flowers
being scattered about. We have selected two brownies and two elves to act
as judges. All the brownies are to stay on one side of the field and the elvee
on the other.
'Each brownie is to throw one daisy at a time just as fast as he can to
the side where the elves are, and each elf Is to do the same thing. They must
throw the flowers as quickly as they can, but only one at a time.*
'Hurrah,' said the brownies, who had listened carefully to the direction*
•we will do as you say! Let's begin!'
"So the judges were chosen, and the battle of flowers began.
"The ones who were allowed to look were greatly impressed with the
sight before them, for it looked very lovely to see the bright yellow and white
flowers being thrown about, and the brownies and elves had lots of fun.
"They tried to be Just as quick as they could, but it did seem to take them
a long time, especially with the rule of only throwing one flower at a time.
But at last they almost reached the last of their flowers.
"Then the excitement that followed! The audience could hardly wait to
aee which side would win, as they seemed so very even.
"But soon only three buttercups remained on the side of the brownies and
four on the side of the elves. And, sure enough, the brownies won. For a
prize they were given a most beautiful bunch of buttercups and daisies and
also a great big basketful of the most delicious wild strawberries."
the same experiences as thousands of
other homesteaders.
Governor Hanna knows what it is
to burn buffalo chips for fuel, to drive
an ox team thirty miles to the river
for fire wood, to mix his own bread,
and bake his own spuds, and it is to
his faith that these difficulties would
in time result in success that have made
him the successful farmer, banker,
financier and governor that he is.
He has experienced the hardships
of pioneer life, of homesteading un
der difficulties, and perhaps these ex
periences, together with his friendly
nature, more than anything else, have
endowed him with that fellow feeling
and friendship for the thousands of
people battling the difficulties of mak
ing farms out of the virgin prairie.
He is a man who is-always willing
to jut himself out for his friends, who
is invariably ready to assist a fellow
man who is finding the road treacher
ous and difficult, and he is a man
whose greatest political ideals are to
make North Dakota a better and more
profitable home for its residents.
He has applied modern business
methods to the management of our
state's financial affairs, and has suc
ceeded, even during the short time of
his service, beyond the expectations of
his friends and supporters. A vote
for Governor Hanna is a vote for
successful, conservative, quiet govern
ment with the noise and clatter of
political machinery entirely eliminated
Willow City Eagle: The promised
"bumb" of the "Progressive"' republi
cans that was to blow the Hanna band
wagon skyward was prematurely ex
ploded in this county last week by
State Senator Garden's Souris Mes
senger, and harmed no one except pos
sibly the senator, who had spent some
timo in writing the article. The only
statement that could possibly do any
harm, if true, is the following:
"Hanna's press bureau circulated the
report last year that Hanna had
showed his wonderful generosity in
presenting each old Vet. with ten dol
lars in gold on the occasion of their
visit to the Gettysburg encampment.
Of course Hanna was willing to receive
the benefit of this advertising, when
he knew it was a lie. Just that and
nothing else. The fact of the matter
was that the taxpayers of North Da
kota paid each soldier his ten dollars.
What seems remarkable is that a man
occupying the chair of the chief exec
utive of the state should be willing to
be the beneficiary of such a cheap mis
statement of the facts."
The above is untrue and Senator
Garden knew it was untrue when he
penned and had it published in his
paper. Governor Hanna was not even
present when the money was handed
to the old soldiers, it being a residue
of the appropriation by the state made
by virtue of a large number unable to
make the trip, and Governor Hanna,
as soon as he read the dispatches sent
out by the newspaper reporters com
municated with the commander of the
G. A. R. of this state and asked him
to correct the mistake, which was
done immediately.
Senator Garden knew this when he
wrote the above "bomb that will blow
Hanna out of the state," and yet they
will prate about honesty and fairness.
If U. L. Burdick is aware of and sanc
tions such unfair, if not downright
dishonest methods being used in his
behalf then he ought to be defeated.
But we do not believe he would sanction
such methods.

Much of the prosjerity and peace of

splendid law. People say that the law
does not prohibit. What nonsense.
Just go out and try and sell booze and

against burglary and murder does not
prohibit either, but it holds these
crimes pretty well in check just the
same. So it is with the prohibition

what are those fellows who are op

Colombian Mills Grind Our Wheat
Consul Isaac Manning Barranquilla:
The Caribe flour mills of this city are
securing an average yield of exceeding
73 per cent of flour from wheat im
ported from New York. In February
they ground 9,695.25 bushels of wheat,
which yielded 412,875 pounds of patent
flour, 16,750 pounds of low-grade Hour,
and 152,100 pounds of bran. Thus the
yield per bushel was 44.75 pounds of
patent and 3.5 pounds of low grade
flour, of 73.5 per cent.
In this process the miller used 80
per cent of No. 1 northern and 20 per
cent of No. 2 hard winter, the former
principally from Dakota, Minnesota, or
Manitoba, and the latter from Kan
sas. The present wholesale price of
this mill's patent flour is now $7 por
cental (101.4 pounds.)

"Gentlemen:—Since I was a very
young man I was a sufferer from
Bronchitis. I tried doctor after doc
tor, getting little or no benefit. Final
ly I had night sweats, weak spells and
lost rapidly in weight and my doctor
told me if they were not checked
would have consumption. Miss Mary
Korhamer, who is a friend of mine, re
covered after taking your Alterative,
and insisted that I try it. I am
after two years, perfectly well, strong
and healthy. (Abbreviated.)

Eckman's Alterative is most effica
cious in bronchial catarrh and severe
throat and lung affections and up

good part of the tentative measure,
especially that which was incorporated
Into the present law, represented Mr.
Warburg's handiwork. In his criti
cisms on the law as it now stands, Mr.
Warburg has been courageous and
useful. He opposed the creation of
twelve separate regional banks, let
ting it be plainly known that his
own preference was for a single bank,
or, at most, for four. But he also
said, on the enactment of the law:
"There cannot be any doubt but that
the enactment of this legislation
will inaugurate a new era in the his
tory of banking in the United States.
While it is to be regretted that some
important suggestions made by the
business community could not be
adopted, the fundamental thoughts,
for the victory of which some of us
have worked for so many years, have
won out. That is to say, from now
on we shall witness the gradual elimi
nation of the bond-secured currency,
of scattered reserves, of immobilized
commercial paper and of pyrmiding
of call loans on the stock exchange.
The ship is headed right, and noth
ing will ever turn her back into her
old course."
