H. L. Shirley, Wilkin. St. Paul, May 14—Governor John A. Johnson Was today made the candidate of his state for the presidential nomi nation by the Democratic party. Mid scenes of the wildest confusion and enthusiasm the boom of the Minne sotan was launched in a manner that indicates that the "Tall Pine" will have one state solidly behind him to the finish at the Denver convention. It was a significant event, and its significance was realized by the rep resentative body of Minnesota Demo crats that filled the convention hall Although insurrection was in the air and Bryan Democrats were standing about, ready to bolt if the order came, it was a Johnson convention through and through. His followers controlled the organization, dictated the names on the committees, wrote the resolu tion and placed the stamp oi Johnson upon every move of the convention. The enthusiasm was conclusive. The first cheers for Minnesota's executive came when Frank A. Day after working the delegates up to a high pitch by severely attacking the Bryan men in this state for what he called the villest attack that had ever been made in Minnesota politics, men tioned the name of Governor Johnson. At the auditorium there was a pic turesque sight. The different counties were assigned to their places designat ed by signs. Some of the delegates unable to find places on the main floor, were assigned to seats on the stage. The American colors were draped about the proscenium of the stage, and pictures of Governor John son and other Democratic leaders were in evidence. Band music added a light touch to the situation, and made the wait for the convention a de lightful affair. The galleries were crowded, made up mostly of Bryan men of the different contesting dele gations. Day's Speech a Scorcher. At the close of his address, Andrew Nelson, of Duluth, was chosen secre tary of the convention, being escorted to the platform by Senator J. C. Brymn and Johnson. We favor progressive and practic able measures for the taxation of in comes, the establishment of postal savings banks, and safeguarding of bank deposits along lines suggested by William J. Bryan. While maintaining an affection for and confidence In the integrity and ability of Hon. William Jennings Bryan, we now propose as the party's choice one.who. equally worthy, gives greater promise ot a successful candi dacy and Is first entitled to our sup port. Hardy, of Ramsey county, and A. C* Weiss, publisher of the Duluth Herald. Delegate Wheaton, of Hennepin coun ty, made the motion that the follow ing be chosen as assistant secretaries to the convention. John Casey, of Todd county, and Fred Schllplin, of St. Cloud, and Frank Battley, of Ram sey county. The motion of Mr. Wheaton passed. The Committees. Resolutions Chairman C. D. O'Brien, St. Paul. Credentials—Chairman, Meyers J. Armson. Organization—Chairman, Senator H. F. Weif, LeSueur. The credentials committee voted unanimously to reject the contest of the Hennepin county Bryan men. %. D. O'Brien, chairman of the com mittee on resolutions, came forward and presented its report. He stated that it had been signed by all except T. J. Knox of Jackson and W. J. Whip ple of Winona. Mr. Knox presented the minority report and moved its adoption as an amendment. The Platform. We affirm our allegiance to the prin ciples of the party of Jefferson and Jackson and pledge our entire and faithful support to the candidate for the presidency whom the national Democratic party in its wisdom shall select at the convention to be held in Denver next July. We commend and indorse the hon est, upright and efficient administra tion of public affairs oi this state dur ing the past four years. With the co operation of the legislature and other public officers our wise and able execu. tive has secured a system of taxation of high merit, the public resources have been conserved, the laws have been emorced and public duties dis charged with efficiency and thorough ness. We declare that the high protective tariff now maintained by the Republic an party has made possible unlawful trusts and combinations, has destroyed the equilibrium which should exist between the producing classes, and is still the chief rampart behind which predatory wealth is intrenched. We hold that while this condition remains unchanged the best efforts of prosecuting officers, courts and juries will be ineffectual to afford perman ent relief from trust domination. We therefore insist that the tariff he at once revised to meet these con ditions, and that the revision be by the friends of the. people rather than by the friends of the tariff. Corporations. The corporate form of oragnization has been freely used as a cloak to hide overcapitalization, reckless spec ulation and illegal business methods. Strict supervision and control of the great industrial enterprises and pub lic service corporations is necessary for the continued welfare of the Am erican people. This fact should be ac cepted fully and in good faith by those in control of such industries, and in this way industrial peace can be most quickly secured but until the right of the state and federal gov ernments within their respective do mains to so supervise is fully estab lished we declare it to be the duty of all public officers to take the most ef fective means consistent with our sys tem of government to bring all to a realization of the fact that the great fundamental objects of the American government are to maintain the dig nity of labor to preserve law and or der to keep men from injuring one another, and to afford equal oppor tunities to all. Railroads and Labor. We recognize that the commercial and transportation business of the country cannot be transacted except through the instrumentality of large aggregations of capital, but that fact makes it more than ever necessary that the rights of the individual citi zen should be zealously guarded. It is not only their right to do so, but it is necessary that those who labor with their hands should organize for their own protection. The demand of labor shall be granted for reasonable hours of work, for the compulsory adoption of safety appliances in con nection with dangerous employments and for the modification of the rules of common law fixing the liability of the master for injuries to servant so that in the future our jurisprudence will guarantee to labor that the in dustry will bear the risk. We declare further that in common with all other citizens those charged with any crime in connection with or growing out of so-called labor disturb ances should enjoy the right to a speedy and impartial trial by jury. State and Nation. We believe that the powers ceded to the federal government by the states through the constitution in its present form are ample. Notwith standing the closer relations between the people which improved transpor tation has established, a too great centralization of power is as dangei ous as when the constitution was framed The powers reserved to the states are necessary to enable each to manage its domestic and internal af fairs, to preserve the American prin ciple of home rule to prevent the ex ercise of autocratic power by federal officers and to maintain between the states a generous rivalry as to which can best present a system of wise laws and efficient administration. The dangers to be apprehended from centralization of power are al ready apparent, for under autocratic leaderships congress has become in active and no longer responds to the public will, while a bureaucratic form of government is being rapidly ex tended to a point which threatens the extinction of state autonomy. We favor the election of United States senators by a direct vote of the people. Must Vote 8quare. St. Paul—As a result of the charge that Republicans voted at the Demo cratic caucuses held in Minneapolis, a determined movement is on foot to put a stop to the practice of voting the ticket of one party at primaries by members of another party. Both the Bryan men and the Johnson men in Minneapolis assert that in some of the precincts Republicans voted, and a number ot prominent members of both parties have started organism* tlon ot a club to watch the primaries and to prosecute illegal voters. mm IST FO 80 8AYS JAME8 J. HILL AT THE RESOURCES CONSERVATION CONFERENCE. AIMS TO DODGE A FUTURE DISASTER Railroad Head Declares That in Fifty Years the Drain on the Country's Gifts from Nature May Result in Trouble If No Move Is Made. Washington, May 15.—The second day's conference at the White House between President Roosevelt and the governors of the various states and ter ritories for the consideration of the question of the conservation of the natural resources of the country was held Thursday. President Roosevelt called the meeting to order, after which he invited Gov. John A. Johnson of Minnesota to preside. Perhaps the most noted speaker was James J. Hill, chairman of the board of directors of the Great Northern railroad, on "The Natural Wealth of the Land and Its Conservation." Then followed addresses by Prof. T. C. Chamberlin of Chicago, president of the American Association for the Ad vancement of Science, on "Soil Waste age," and by R. A. Long of Kansas City, on "Forest Conservation." A general discussion of the subjects of the ad dresses was then begun, in which a number participated. Discussion Precedes Conference. The scene previous to calling the conference together by President Roosevelt was one of animated discus sion. Notwithstanding the intense heat in the east room, every available seat was occupied. President Roose velt, upon calling the delegates to order, announced that Gov. Deneen of Illinois would preside at the after noon session. The president then in troduced Mr. Hill as the first speaker of the morning session. Mr. Hill's ap pearance on the platform was greet ed with a great ovation. He talked for nearly an hour, and at the conclu sion of his address was warmly con gratulated by the members of the cab inet, William J. Bryan and others, who shook hands with him. James J. Hill Speaks. Mr. Hill spoke as follows: "Two years ago, in an address de» livered before the meeting of the Min nesota State Agricultural society at St. Paul I reviewed the practical conse quences and the statistical proof of that national wastefulness which com petent scientific authority had already set down as distinguishing the Amer ican people. From data of the highest certainty, no one of which has ever since been called in question, I then forecast some of the conditions cer tain to arise within the next half century, when the population of this country will have grown to more than 200,000,000. The facts were pointed out not in the spirit of the alarmist,but in order that attention might be direct ed to the way which the nation may escape future disaster. So rapidly do events move in our time, so swiftly do ideas spread and grasp the public mind, that some policy directed to the ends then set forth has already be come a national care. It is this pol icy—the conservation of national re sources, the best means of putting an end to the waste of the sources of wealth—which largely forms the sub ject matter of this conference. For the first time there is a formal nation al project, under seal of the highest authority, against economic waste. Method Is Significant. "The method by which this end is to be reached is scarcely less interest ing or significant. This body has no legal status and its conclusions will not be of binding effect upon the na tion, the state or the individual. Yet they will carry a weight greater than legislatures can impart, a force that even courts could not strengthen, be cause they will not be subject to re peal. They will represent a truly na tional opinion expressed with fidelity to our national constitutional form. "The sum of resources is simple and fixed. From the sea, the mine, the forest and the soil must be gathered everything that can sustain the life of man. Upon the wealth that these supply must be conditioned forever, as far as we can see, not only his progress, but his continued existence on earth. How stands the inventory of prosperity for our own people?" King to Be Wedding Guest. London, May 15.—Miss Jean Reid, daughter of the American ambassador to Great Britain, Whitelaw Reid, and John Hubert Ward, brother of the earl of Dudley and equerry-in-waiting to King Edward, will be married in the Chapel Royal of St. James palace June 23. King Edward will be pres ent at the ceremony. Terrorizes Home Kills Girl. Pueblo, Col., May 15.—Without ap parent cause, James Lynn, a negro, burst into the home of Mrs. Julia James, white, and after beating the woman unmercifully, drove her and her daughter, Sarah, aged 16, into the street, where he shot and instantly killed the girl and seriously wounded the mother. Riot in Convention Hall. Dayton, O., May 15.—A riot over possession of the hall for the Repub lican congressional convention oc curred at Eaton shortly after midnight in which four policemen were roughly handled by armed men of the "Bieser" faction. In Thrifty Germany. In certain towns in Germany house* holders are compelled by law to sort out their house dust. They have to provide three receptacles—one for ashes and sweepings, one for cooking refuse and One for rags and paper The rubbish is utilized by the town au thorities. Slight Obstacle. Knicker-^-Did Jones wake up to find himself famous? Booker—Yes, but he couldn't wake the nelghbora. SCAMDINA VIAM MEWS Principal Events Gathered In the OM Scandinavian Countries It is pointed out in a Norwegian daily that the treaty insuring the in tegrity of Norway comes in as a most opportune supplement to the Baltic and North Sea treaties which Sweden has entered into. Those treaties have nothing to do with the western fron tier of Sweden. But now its western border is protected through the Nor wegian treaty of integrity, by the very powers that have signed the Baltic and North Sea treaties. Mr. Lowzow, the new Norwegian minister of war, is a man who is not disposed to pick quarrels with his neighbors. He made this plain in an address which he delivered a few days ago at the unveiling of a monument at Toverud, where a Norwegian army defeated a Swedish army just one hundred years ago. Mr. Lowzow said in part: "The wounded and unwound ed Swedes who were captured at Toverud surely had no reason to com plain of the manner in which they were treated after the close of the battle. Nor did the Swedish nation have any reason to complain of the attitude of the Norwegians after the Swedish army had been driven out of the country. When other enemies en tered Sweden from a different direc tion the king wanted to send out the Norwegian army to take part in the conquest and dismemberment of Swe den. But the Norwegians refused to do so. Our forefathers wanted to vin dicate their rights and their honor but contiibute to the perdition of an other Scandinavian country they would not! The king's command was not obeyed' The most prominent men in Sweden then thanked the Nor wegians And we who are standing here today agree with our forefathers. We dare say that if the events shape themselves according to our wishes we shall not only act loyally but with determination and firmness in a true Scandinavian spirit in case danger threatens one of the Scandinavian na tions" This means that the present Norwegian minister of war is in favor of aiding Sweden in case the latter is invaded by a hostile army. DENMARK. The government is alarmed at the discovery by a prominent lawyer of a sixty-year-old law, which never has been repealed, and which obliges the state to give any Danish subject who applies for it sufficient land to enable him to support himself and his fam ily. The law, which never has been taken advantage of, was passed in 1848, when the people of Schleswig Holstein turned rebels against Den mark, and was intended to give the young men who were called to serve during the three years' war the feel ing that they had a part in the coun try they were asked to defend and to make them feel certain that they never would be paupers when dis charged from the service after the war. The law will probably be re pealed by the next rigsdag, although the Socialists declare they will make a strong fight against any attempt to have it taken off the statute books. SWEDEN. The Swedish anti-tuberculosis so ciety has $83,000 in the treasury. King Edward donated $270 to the children's home of Stockholm. The nightingale was heard in south ern Sweden as early as April 27. The military authorities do not favor the use of motorcycles in the army. The Mo public school house at Mo holm station was completely destroyed by fire. Sweden exported 3,011,000 dozen of eggs last year, receiving $140,000 in payment. Queen Victoria of Sweden has gone from Venice to Karlsruhe. She stopped two days at Geneva on her way. A strike was avoided in the shoe making trade in Malmo by a general raise of fifteen per cent of the wages, and a corresponding raise had to be made in the price of shoes The remains of Swedenborg, which were brought from London last win ter, will be located in the cathedral of Upsala. The people of Varnhem, Vestergotland, wanted it kept there but the cabinet decided to override the considerations of local patriotism and place the remains of the famous religious philosopher in the national pantheon of his country. A number of Swedish business men have been endeavoring to establish a direct line of passenger steamers between Sweden and America It was said that J. Pierpont Morgan would support the enterprise on certain con ditions. But a Danish paper states that the plan has been abandoned be cause the Swedish government was not in favor of subsidizing a steam ship company, the chief aim of which would be to carry Swedish citizens as emigrants to other parts of the world. Two boys and a girl who went to the minister to be prepared for the Lord's Supper at Loftahammar, near Vestervik, had to cross the water, and their boat capsized off Hasselo, send ing all three to the bottom. The VermJand Enskilda Bank, which owned a majority of the stocks of the Molnbacka and Trysil lumber ing company, has sold its stocks to an English syndicate. The Haga and TJlriksdal palaces in Stockholm are in such a poor condi tion that they need repairs for about $75,000. The Grangesberg and Oxlosund traf fic company's resources are put at $26,000,000 and the profits were $3, 000,000 for 1907. A little over $11. 000,000 has actually been invested in this mammoth concern. The reserve fund amounts to almost $2,000,000. The grounds used for the recent Industrial exposition in Lund have been set aside as a temporary park and playgrounds. About 50 teamsters in Malmo were fined 54 cents each for driving on the street railway tracks and delaying the A great many men are still out of work in Malmo and the surrounding country. Labor troubles kept 21,722 persons out of work for a shorter or longer period during the year 1907, and 793 employers were affected. There were 237 strikes, 22 lockouts and 39 stops of a mixed nature. It is estimated that 531,000 days were lost on ac count of these disturbances. A consignment of 600 tons of Amer ican mowers and reapers was recent ly landed at Malmo. There is a ten per cent advalorem duty on this kind of goods, and many Swedes are ask ing themselves why the Swedes can not supply their own market with or dinary agricultural implements. NORWAY. A new freight steamer for a firm in Brazil has just been completed at the Nyland iron works, Kristiania. The storting has voted a subsidy of $400 to Rev. Hognestad in order that he may go abroad to study before he enters upon his duties as professor at the theological seminary which the orthodox people are going to estab lish. A prominent labor union in Fred rikstad has withdrawn from the na tional organization, and many other local unions are ready to follow in its wake. The national organization is controlled by the Socialists, and the leaders of this party nee'd so much money that the labor unions are get ting weary of the heavy contributions. This sign of disintegration of the So cialist party may lead to important consequences in Norwegian politics Peter Aulestad has worked for Bjornson exactly thirty years. Mr. Aulestad expressed himself as follows in an interview on his boss, the great poet: "He has always been good to his horses, but he was bound to ride fast. He is a matchless fellow, he is so good to all of us. Well, and his wife, too. He is strict about the work and must know all details When his son Erling was in America I had to report everything to him every day." Andreas Hankland, a young author, is one of the most gifted poets among the rising men of Norway. But the moral standard of his works is low, and for that reason the storting left him out in voting subsidies for young poets and artists Rev. Alfred Erik ssen, the Socialist leader, proposed a subsidy for Hankland, arguing that a genuine poet should be rewarded ir respective "of the moral tone of his works. The Socialists were support ed by Prof. F. Stang, the able leader of the Conservatives, and finally Prof. Brogger, the rector of the university, made an address in favor of Hank land. But the storting resolved tHat this poet should have no subsidy, the vote being 62 to 30. The Verdens Gang contained the following editorial on the visit of King Edward to Norway: "To the British nation it may seem of but slender importance what we may be under taking. A nation of but 2,330,000 souls cuts but an insignificant figure among the great states of the world, and in ternational relations are but little af fected by the direction in which our cultural and commercial intercourse may tend to develop. But what may seem of little significance at the mo ment, may not necessarily always re main so. The great extent of Norwe gian territory will, under modern con ditions, no doubt, permit a long con tinued increase of population, and the circumstance of our country possess ing the greatest waterpow er in Eu rope must, necessarily, in time to come, increase the economic import ance of Norway. At a time when the races of the earth are struggling for elbow-room in new fields, the posses sion of the Scandinavian peninsula, with its great geographical extent and its vast possibilities of industrial de velopment must necessarily be of con siderable concern to the race embrac ing alike Britons and Germans, and the attainment on the part of close kins men, like the Norwegians, of a safe and unassailable position, cannot fail to awaken a lively interest in the English people In the interest of peace we attach great political sig nificance to the visit of British Roy alty to our capitol. It will, as ft were, lend official character to the instinc tive and traditional personal sym pathy from time immemorial prevail ing between Britons and Norwegians, and which perhaps was never more apparent than during the Napoleonic wars of 1807-1814—when the two gov ernments were at enmity, and which has ever since attracted a constantly increasing stream of English tourists to our fjords and valleys, where, ac cording to their own testimony, they feel more at home than anv where else outside the British Isles, because of the similarity of the popular char acter to that of their own nation." King Edward said in a toast at the Norwegian court that many English men go to Norway for the peaceful purpose of angling salmon, and he was in hopes that this sport will forever remain an emblem of peace between Norway and England. The zoological museum at the Uni versity of Norway has been removed to a new building erected for that purpose at Toien, Kristiania.

TOWN STREET AND NO STATE... Hit or Miss. A San Franciscan was talking with Mary Mannering. "Do you expect ever again to appear with James K. Hack ett, your husband?" he asked. "Commerse," she replied, slowly and thoughtfully, "is not entirely to blame for the separation of stars even though they are married. A woman on the stage, as off, should not leave her hus bank. Conversely, a man on the stag* or off should not leave his wife. They should be together. Separation in dif ferent shows means the beginning of trouble it cannot be otherwise. I am sure of that, and if I knew when I was 18 years old—that was when I was married—what I know now, things would have been different with me. I am certain of that. Many things could have been settled then once and for all, which, left unsettled, have caused only heartaches and pain. That in the real tragedy of the stage, and as yet there is no play exploiting the theme." Go to 8paln.
