This movement, according to the fyrum, takes in the "real re formers" of the state who are not in sympathy with the Re rablican Good Government or its purposes. The new out fit is to take part in a general movement, and the people in terested in it are those who are in favor of reform for its own sake and for no other purpose. The movers, still according to the Forom, are republicans, democrats, populists and men without party affiliations, and the Forum says they are al ready strong enough to make trouble for the present state administration. It is a little significant that the Forum did not make this discovery until af ter the meeting of the Kinder garten Club in St. Paul, at which meeting the St. Paul papers say matters of importance were dis cussed, and plans were devised to head off the league movement which was already beginning to assume a threatening appear ance. Naturally if the members of the Kindergarten Club or its officers could head off the league movement by springing a new one, that would be good politics for them, and they are adepts in that sort of politics. And if the Forum could further the work, that would be an explanation of its present interest in the work of the "real reform" the reform of a system which, according to the expressions and judged by the attitude of the Forum is al ready perfect. The present system is one in which those who are ''good" are cared for and the Forum is al ways "good." When the boss takes snuff the Forum never fails to sneeze and its dream of new reform movement is the re sult of an unusually large pinch of snuff, taken just after the boys got back from St. Paul. —Grand Forks Herald, Dec. 27, 1905.
