HE Wadena Pioneer Journal, one of the ablest newspapers in the state, devotes a long editor ial to showing that there is a vast difference between the kind words which Judge Collins said of J. J. Hill and the kind words which Mr. Dunn said of the Great Northern president. The Jour nal effort is called forth by the suggestion made in these columns recently that Judge Collins, eulogy of Mr. Hill would afford his supporters an opportunity to warm over all the nasty things they have said of Dunn for a similar' statement. The net of the matter is that if the Dunn Hill interview and the Collins Hill speech were presented to them unlabled Judge Collins, supporters would have hard -work to tell which was which. In fact, they would probably rise up in righteous indignation and de nounce Dunn as the unholy author of them both. RURAL delivery carriers re ceive the magnificent salary of $600 per year. Efforts have been made for some time to amend the rules governing thorn so as to allow them to act as public car riers of parcels, etc. Such a modification of the rules would result in material good to tin.' general public and enable the carriers to increase their com pensation to a reasonable point.

WH EN the Business Men's club becomes a, fact one profit able subject for discussion will be the maintainance of a city band. Bemidji's band has struggled on with little concerted assistance thus far frpm those who are most interested. Other cities have succeeded in devising plans by which the city band has been a valuable organization and Oemidji can do tho same.

BITS fFROM [TB E 26 SMALL CAUSE FOR WORRY. The fact that Minnesota lias some fifteen hundred thousand acres of swamp land is causing some good people a great deal of uneasiness. They fear that the humble homesteader may not have the opportunities that he de serves and that the state will not be settled fast enough so long as it hangs on to these fifteen hun dred thousand acres of swamp. As for the settlement of the state? Minnesota has thousands ofacreto cheap lands now on the market which are attracting the very best kind of settlers as fast as we let them know what we have. Any body who wants cheap land and is willing to play pioneer and do the hard work de manded of a man who clears up a new country can get all he wants in Minnesota, and after his hard work is done he will have some land that is worth while.

Mr. Nelson is said to give to the great drama a finished and thorough interpretation. He is a close student, an energetic worker and an enthusiast in his line and his recent successes stamp him as one of the foremost actors of the present time in Shakespearean drama. The seat sale for the production has been large and the indications are that one of the largest audiences of the present season will witness the production. FINISHHAULING Neils Lumber Co. Hauls Over Mil lion of Logs Through Streets of Cass Lake. On Monday the J. Neils Lum ber Co. finished hauling all the logs that they will take from their camps west of town directly through the village. Over one million have been taken on the village road, and the remainder of the throe million being out at the camps will be dumped into the Mississippi river at the junc tion with Cass Lake. On Sunday the largest load hauled through town was brought in. There were 11,4-10 feet in the load which was put on the sleighs by Jerome Compoand Ross Hamp ton, two of the best loaders in this part of the state. The teams were stopped at several points of vantage along the street and the load photographed. No damage whatever has resulted from the use of the graded street for the logging road, and it was some thing of an accommodation to the Neils company to allow the use of the street.Cass Lake Voice. To Reballast Line. The Great Northern railway has piled a lot of new ties along the road bed, the entire distance from Cass Lake to Duluth, and when the frost goes out of the ground in the spring they will bo put in place along the line. It is said that the company also in tends to rebalance the road bed during the coming summer, which will be considerable of a job. This line, from Crookston to Duluth, is one of the best pay ing properties in the possession of the Great Northern, and the company proposes to have the road in such shape that the large passenger and freight traffic can be handled to advantage.

New York, March 14.That there has been a marked increase in crime and criminal tendencies among all classes and that this condition has been due to semi-conscious suggestions from various causes, among them the vulgarity of newspapers, debased the aters, impure literature and divorces, all of which may be remedied, is the belief expressed by Henry Hopkins, president of Williams college, at a meeting here of the Patria club. "The foundations of the personal character of our national life are seri ously threatened,'' he said, "by ugly features of the present time. There Is abounding evidence of an alarming increase in crime of every sort, but particularly of the kind that under mines honesty, chastity and respect foi law. There is a growing infidelity to financial trust and consequently a visible loss of confidence of man in his fellow men. Defalcations continue and multiply in disheartening succes sion. The proportion of divorces to marriages is astonishing and sicken ing. Disintegration, decadence and often destruction of the family and lowering of the home ideal go on. "But most disheartening and start ling of all is the lawless spirit in towns and cities, where have grown up crowds of hoodlums, where there is an increasing population who break out Into reckless violence at times of strikes and lockouts. Of the same na ture are the worse than brutal exhibi tions in defiance of all authority and decency in the lynchings and hideous burnings that dishonor human nature itself. "One of the most potent, most ubiquitous, most constantly operative causes is the vast volume of criminal suggestion flowing in upon the public mind through various means, but es pecially through the public press. In the daily recital of criminal actions the reader is taught both how to per form the crime and how to avoid pun ishment." TRADE CONDITIONS IMPROVE. Favorable Weather Exerts a Decidedly Beneficial Effect. New York, March 14.Bradstreet's weekly review of trade says weather conditions have improved, and with them jobbing trade at leading Western points. Southern spring trade reports continue good, and recent rain or snow In the Southwest, though so light in some sections as to be of little sorvice to winter wheat, has brightened wheat reports from that section. The iron trade also shows a gain in activ ity and in prices of crude material. Transportation mattors show improve ment and with them supplies of coke to furnaces and shipments of goods to consumers. February gross railroad earnings as a whole promise to be somewhat better than the outlook sometime ago favored... Drawbacks to general spring trade outlook are found in the slowness of Eastern buy ers to take hold of spring goods and in serious floods. Pacific coast trade re ports show a slight improvement.
