It is the intention to make the Green Lake Chautauqaa an annual event, and everything possible will be done to insure the success of the undertaking.

Attorneys and others represent ing the Qund Brewing Company of LaCrosse, Wis., have impudently informed the authorities of the Vil lage of Kandiyohi that their com pany proposes to put in a wholesale distributing station there and de sires the village to grant them li cense so that the village may get the necessary revenue to police the town. President Backlund made a visit post haste to see the county attor ney about the matter. This offi cial has submitted the question to the Attorney-general. It seems that as the village of Kandiyohi has never had a vote on the ques tion since it was incorporated the liquor men hold that a wholesale house cannot be kept out, in spite of the fact that the village is prohi bition territory. The saloon men have never mustered ten signers to a petition, hence there has been no vote taken and the village re mains,dry as the township always had been dry before. The village authorities were for calling a special election at once and disposing of this technicality, but the law pro vides that the question must be sub mitted at the annual election, which is still nine months off. Sheriff Bonde declares that he will promptly arrest the first man attempting to deliver liquors at Kandiyohi station. He maintains that he will have authority to do so ing of nuisances and the prospectsT of raiding such a joint and destroy ing a carload or more of the "Peer less" has no terrors for him. While the village has not voted on the question since incorporat ing, the township of Kandiyohi years ago time and again voted down the license proposition. In 1877 there were 8 votes in favor of, and 97 against in 1878, 4 to 25 in 1879, 0 to 21 1880, 12 to 67 1881, 19 to 67 1882, 12 to 52 'and in 1884, 25 to 45. The last vote was taken in 1886, twenty-one years ago, when the vote stood 39 to 66 against license. The Tribune predicts that the brewery concerns will have a good warm time of it if they attempt to carry out their threats of foisting their business upon a community that will not have it. A delegation of nine farmers of Arctander came down last Monday to attend the ditch hearing before the eounty board.
