How Did It Happen?
Attention is called to the front
page article on the Chicago conven
tion. Technically, it is an editorial
but is too long to handle in this col-
One on the Democrats.
A few days ago, Bemidji Democrats
were laughing at the Republican con
vention and saying that the Demo
cratic convention would be a model
for peace and harmony. Today, they
have nothing to say.
According to Blythe.
Samuel G. Blythe, who writes
"Who's Who" in the Saturday Even
ing Post, is one of the best political
writers of today. In the June issue
of McClure's, he has an article pur
porting to be a report of the Chicago
and Baltimore conventions as they
might have been. His article and
conclusions are a real contribution to
"The American City."
One of the best magazines dealing
with municipal problems which has
yet come to the desk of the editor is
the "American City," the women's
number of which has just been re
ceived. This number of the magazine
is devoted to women and Minnesota
is well represented by Frances Squire
Potter, formerly professor of English
at the University of Minnesota, Mrs.
M. M. Davidson, of Waseca, and Mrs.
Lenora Austin Hamlin, of St. Paul.
The June number is filled with ar
ticles suggesting practical methods of
improving American cities and the
women who have written for this
number appear to be authorities on

previous trip out of this city has
done, that there is a great unsettled
empire up north awaiting develop

possibility that is untouched.
"Four hundred bushels of potatoes
to the acre is not uncommon!
"Grass grows wild that will feed
thousands upon thousands of cattle
and support a great dairy business!
"How much longer shall we let do
nothing governors fritter away the
years.because they have not the ener
gy and business capacity to arouse
the people to what they possess?
"How much longer shall we be con
tent to let incompetent office seekers
spring pee-wee issues on us to get our
votes, not giving a thought to the
vital interests of this great state?
"Let's have a business man for gov
ernor just one terma man strong
enough mentally to outline and sefc
afoot a plan for the development that
is ours for the asking.
"Can't the people of this state get
together, just for one campaign on a
really big man to run Minnesota,
without stopping to ask whether he
is for Roosevelt or Taft or La Follette!
or Bryan, whether he is Democratic
"A big broad-gage man who knows
something about doing business in a
business way would set us going.
