fHI3 PAPER REPRESENTED FOR FOREIGN
ADVERYlSING BY THE
NEW YORK AND CHICAGO
BRANCHES IN ALL THE PRINCIPAL CITIES
A New York jury has decided that
Harry Thaw is sane, but this ac
tion does not m^an that ais freedom
will be obtained, as the state authori
ties have announced that an appeal
will be taken It is estimated that
Thaw's nine-year fight for liberty
has cost his family $1,175,000, while
the expense to New York taxpayers
totals $425,000. Thaw's career has
touched many high spots, a few of
them being as follows: Enjoyed al
lowance of $80,000 a year before
reaching hie majority, spent $50,000
for a single dinner in Paris to
a number of stage beauties and lost
$40,000 in one game of poker in
Pittsburg in 1900
The Efficiency Commission.
In accordance with authority given
by the last legislature, Governor
Hammond, Lieutenant Governor
Burnqwst and Speaker Flowers
have agreed on the membership of
the new economy and efficiency com
mission On it is a working majority,
comprising men who are well quali
fied to act
The purpose of this commission is
practically the same as that forme
Governor Eberhart to frame a plan
whereby the governmental system of
Minnesota may be made more simple,
of greater strength, of more effi
ciency and less costly.
The governor named three, and
the speaker and lieutenant governor
four. The selections follow:
By the governor: Charles P.
Craig, Duluth, chairman of the
citizens' commission appointed
by Governor Eberhart which re
ported to the last legislature
Representative Gunnar B.
Bj'ornson, Minneota, and Repre
sentative Spooner, Morris,
chairman of the house committee
which considered the bill sub
mitted at the last session.
By the lieutenant governor:
Senators James A. Carley, Plain
view, author of the resolution
providing for the commission
F. A. Duxbury, Caledonia,
chairman of the senate commit
tee on civil administration Jo
seph A. Jackson, St. Paul A. J.
Roekne, Zumbrota, chairman
senate finance committee.
By the speaker: Representa
tive Thomas H. Girling, Robbins
dale, Hennepin county, chairman
on rules Rep-
resentative Fred Bessette, Orr,
St Louis county Representa
tive T. J. McGrath, St. Paul
Representative Charles H. War
ner, Aitkin, author of the reso
lution in house.
This commission will investigate
the state's system of government and
will report upon its simplification at
the 1917 session of the legislature
The commission will hold its first
session at the capitol August 3.
There is a public demand that the
governmental system of the state be
improved and had it not been for
shrewd politics and selfish opposition
an economy and efficiency plan
would have carried at the last ses
sion. At the next session this de
mand will be increased and the legis
lators will not only be expected, but
required to pass a measure which
will bring about desired changes.
There is always sunshine and fair
^weather and good fellows always get
together in Northern Minnesota.
St. Hilaire Spectator.
Judging from the tfress reports,
the "adjourned session" of the legis
lature on their trip to Northern
Minnesota must have discovered an
other Klondike. They promised
state aid like drunken bailors to
search for the hidden treasures.
Your town is just what you help
to make It. The booster can see the
good things and can enjoy his life.
The knocker can see only himself and
his own creations and it is no won
der he is not satisfied. Bury your
hammer and look around a little at
the many beauties in life right here
in your own town Aurora News.
Let us not feel that Northern Min
nesota has been singled out for bad
weather, storms, floods and other un
favorable conditions The phenom
enal weather of the past weeks has
been widespread, according to the
newspapers, extending as far south
and east as the Atlantic seaboard. In
fact, this part of the country has
suffered less than the regions of a
dozen other states, and our people
can well congratulate themselves
that the situation is no worse.
Grand Rapids Herald-Review.
A large number of the merchants
of Winona have entered into an
agreement not to hereafter give
away premiums, coupons or trading
stamps as an inducement to secure
trade, says the Lake City Leader.
They propose to give a dollar's worth
of goods for a dollar in money
which ought to appeal to the buying
community of that locality One of
the worst things any man can do who
has anything to sellis to offer a
premium or gift to the man or wo
man who is buying it. If an article
is worth a dollar, sell it for a dollar
and retain the respect and lasting
friendship and patronage of your
customer Stillwater Gazette.

With the indictment of Mayor
Bell, Thomas Taggart, Democratic
National committeeman, and 128
other Indiana politicians, including
Chief of Police Perrott of this city
and Donn Roberts, the previous in
dictments were thrown into the back
ground. Mayor Bunch of Munice has
taken legal points of his case to the
state supreme court and a decision
will not come until October, and the
Terre Haute conspiracy so thorough
ly cleaned up by United States Dis
trict Attorney Dailey, is history.
The Indianapolis indictment, strik
