The friends and political sup porters of Coventor Burke believe that IIS a poll I cal potentiality he Is worth more extended study than is implied In the mere mention of his candidacy for the Ocinocrutie vice presidential nomination. His career in the field of politics is so peculiar as to be unique, in evidence of which statement it is but necessarv to cite the fact that he is now serving his third term as execu tive of a State w hich never before lud looted a fhaUlH fulfill governor since its admission to the I'nion. Of Irish Descent. As his num.. indicates. Governor liurke Is of Irish descent. His father was born in Ireland and arrived in Am erica when twenty-taro years of age. He emigrated to the West and settled on a farm near the town of Sigourney, lOVU, where John Iturke was born Feb ruary jr., x;,!. The son spent his boy hood and youth on the. farm and the only education he received wa by at tendance at the district, school during the short winter terms. At the age of twenty-live he entered the Fnlver sltv of Iowa and two years later left tho institution as a graduate in law. The young lawyer practiced for a t in. in l; s Moines, but in 188 re moved to northern Minnesota and a short time later crossed the border He into North Dakota.

Ho accepted his first Domination for governor In 1!HM5 with great n din tUnot and only af ter the jarty loaders had declared to him that he was the only man they could hope to elect. He won the race by a comfortable majority and has be twice re-elected by galtis which gave unmistakable evidence of his growing popularity with the people. Of Conservative Type. Tall, angular anil a little rough in appearance, ("overnor Hurke cannot if regarded as handsome, but he has a pleasing personality and is vary popu lar among his acipia intji nccs. Ilccause of his appearance and characteristics, he baa been likened to Abraham Lin coln and the designation of "Honest John" has been applied to him by his admirers. Oov. inor Hurke is a DUgJtOOfat of the old school.

MURDER STILL UNSOLVED. After Three Years Mysterious Case in Canada Baffles Police. Hamilton. nt., Feb. it. it w ill h. three years tomorrow since the murder of Kthel Kinrade furnished Hamilton with Ihe greatest sensation of the kind in its history and added to the criminal annals a mystery that the best detec tive talent in America has failed to un- ravel. thai Kinrade. the daughter of an eminently rcspcotanie. ramity, was slain in broad daylight in h- r parents' liune !n the fashionable section of this city. Her sister Florence, th only eye-witness of the tragedy, from the lirst declared that the murderer was a tramp. Though the act appear ed incredibly brutal and audacious and the motive Inadequate, that version was at lirst accepted by the authorities'. Then discrepancies in I'lon i. Kiti- ; ado's story appeared. The actions of her family were inexplicable. The tramp story was soon discre.l.' i.-d and discarded. The police inquiry, while )t failed to find any trace of the murderer, brought to light a icmarkahle condition of af fairs in the Kinrade family. The ln v estimation showed that Hotence Kin rade, of attractive appearance and fond of a gay life, was the pet of the household, while the other daughter, the slain one, was the family drudge. Florence was a concert hall singer and a frequenter of gay summer resorts. whii. Ethel remained at naune and did the work. While the others lived in comfort, even luxury, Kthel Kinra.h was ghrotl n mere closet for a bedroom and a bunk in which to rest. At the preliminary hearing Florence Kinrade was subjected to the sever est cross-examination, but her story of the tramp remained unshaken and the other members of Ihe family re fused to throw aiu light on the t rime. From time to time there have been rumors of possible arrests and only a lew weeks a : it was reported that the case was to ! t. -opened and tha a famous private detective had dis covered a clue to the murderer. Hut so far as anything Is known icv the mystery is likely to remain unsolved and remembered for many years as the most baffling .and absorbingly interest ing criminal case in the records of Cnnndinh crime.
