The Minneapols exposition opens
next Monday and closes October 2nd.
It will be the grandest exposition ever
seen in the Northwest. Reduced rates
on all the railroads.
New York World:The sad news
comes from Rhode Island that the bib
ulous people up there are drinking
themselves into premature graves just
to show how easily they can circum
vent the new prohibition law.
The supreme court of Iowa has ren
dered a decision that the share of the
crops to go to the landlord for rent can
not be levied on by attachment while
growing, but that until a division is
made, the tenant is the sole owner of
the entire crop.
Slayton Gazette:Why not nominate
State Auditor W. W. Braden for gover
nor if the contest between McGill, Gil
man and Gibbs waxes too warm. Mr.
Braden does not seek the place, but
that is no reason why he would not
make a good governor. At any rate
he is an excellent dark horse.
Certainly not a bad suggestion.
St. Paul Dispatch:The choice of
Gen. Fairchild, of Wisconsin, as com
mander-in-chief of the G. A. R. is a
most excellent one. It may be that in
1888 the general may be called still
higher and become the commander-in
chief of the army and navy of the
United States by stepping into Grover
Cleveland's vacated shoes.
Hon. James G. Blaine being unable
to accept the invitation of the Minne
apolis exposition managers to make
the address at the opening exercises,
Hon. C. K. Davis of St. Paul has been
selected as the orator for the occa
sion. Gov. Davis is an eloquent lin
guist and if he can not do the occasion
justice there is no use in anyone else
The forest fires in northern Wiscon
sin are reported dying out, the materi
al on which to feed having become ex
hausted. The vicinity of Green Bay is
alone subject to danger only in the
event of high winds. There is now
much suffering in the devastated region.
Homeless people are sleeping on the
ground with scarcely any covering.
Many people barely escaped with their
lives and are wandering around with
insufficient clothing. Public meetings
are being called in various parts of the
state to provide immediate relief for
the sufferers in the way of food and
Henderson Independent:The only
candidates for United States senator
yet prominently mentioned in connec
tion witn the succession to Senator Mc
Millan are Ex-Gov. C. K. Davis and R,
B. Langdon. One is prominent because
of the distinction which his brilliant
ability has given him, the other be
cause of his wealth. Davis, in point of
-intellect, is the greatest man in the
state. Langdon is a railroad contrac
tor. In case fitness alone is considered
Davis will be elected, but Davis is a
comparatively poor man while Lano-don
is rich, and the people know by this
time how susceptible some members of
the legislature are to the influence of
Nevertheless, Davis will
^undoubtedly be elected. He is unques
tionably the choice of Southwestern
Minnesota and has a strongdetermined
following throughout the state.,.
Renville Union:No fitter candidate
for Lieutenant Governor has been men
tioned than Hon. A. E. Rice, of Will
mar. He should have the united ^sup
port of his party in this section.
The Minneapolis Tribune estimate of
the wheat crop for Minnesota and Da
kota shows the total to be 43,000,-
000 bushels. Last year the total yield
was 70,000,000. Dakota falls off from
eight to fifteen per cent, and Minnesota
from three to five.
We are glad to learn that Mr. H.
Halverson of the Albert Lea Enterprise
stands a good show of receiving the
Republican nomination for Senator in
his district. Mr. H. is a deserving Re
publican and well qualified to wear the
Andrew L. Himle, clerk of court in
Lac qui Parle county, is developing
considerable strength in his candidacy
for clerk of the Supreme Court. Mr. H.
is of Norwegian descent but an Ameri
can by birth. The papers of Lac qui
Parle and neighboring counties speak
very highly of him as a man fully
abreast of the times.
The Democrats will hold their State
convention in St. Paul on Tuesday,
Sept. 14th. The convention will be
composed of 348 delegates of which
Brown county has four, The meeting
of the State central committee was
very harmonious and a series of resolu
tions complimentary to Kelly and Dor
an were passed. Counties must elect
delegates under the call.
The attempt to defeat Oapt. A. H.
Reed for the Republican nomination for
Congress by the publication of such ar
ticles as appeared in Thursday's Pio
neer Press should be roundly denounc
ed by the other candidates. Capt.
Reed is a gentleman and as honest as
the day is long. The idea that he would
attempt to swindle the government out
of $7 is too ridiculous for anything.
The State Fair gives promise of be
ing the greatest Minnesota has yet
held. Work at the grounds is proceed
ing in a satisfactory manner. About
three hundred laborers and mechanics
are now employed in the erection of
new buildings, grading streets, etc. The
fair begins Monday, August 30th and
continues until and including Satur
day, Sept. 4th. Capt. Eckstein of New
Ulm will have charge of the Brown
county exhibit at the fair.
Republican State Convention.
The Republican State central com
mittee met in St. Paul last Thursday
and unanimously decided to hold the
State convention on Wednesday, Sept.
22, 1886, at St. Paul. A majority of
the committee favored an earlier date,
Sept. 15th, but this would have inter
fered somewhat with the Southern Min
nesota fair which holds that week, and
in defference to committeeman Daniels'
wishes a later date was decided upon.
The report sent out from St. Paul that
the late date agreed upon by the com
mittee was a victory for this or that
candidate is all oosh. The personal
wishes of the several Candidates were
not considered by the committee, the
main object sought being to hold the
convention at a time that would be
most convenient for all parties con
cerned, and so as not to come in con
flict with too many county and other
fairs. The convention will consist of
359 delegates and will be the largest
political delegate convention ever held
in the State. The following named
gentlemen are now prominently before
the people as candidates for the several
offices to be filled at the coming elec
