The only notable contest was between Mathias Olson and A. J. Abbott, the latter be ing the caucus nominee. Abbott won by a vote of 38 to 25. Mr. Olson has served the town faithfully as town supervisor for the past 15 years. It was largely owing to the fact that the southern part of the township had no representation on the town board which led to Mr. Abbott's nomination and subse quent election. VILLAGES.

WILLMAR, MINN. FIESI INVASION BY AMERICANS Many Land Soakers Crossing the Bor* dor into Province of Alberta. Special to the Journal Winnipeg, Man., March 10.—J. Bruce Walker, commissioner of immigration, says that immigra tion from the states to Western Canada this year will greatly surpass all previous years. The invasion from the south has al ready commenced and every train brings its quota of Ameri can land seekers. It is the best class of Americans who are ar riving—farmers with plenty of capital and years of experience. The majority of them are locating in Alberta, owing to the progres sive railroad policy of the pro vince. A Legislative Letter. St. Paul, March 13, 1909.—The friends of temperance will have a hearing in the house on at least one of the many bills they have pro posed. This is the measure pre sented by Mr. Adams, whose sole purpose is to extend the operation of the local option laws to all towns having less than 10,000 population. The temperance committee reported it out with the recommendation that it be indefinitely postponed, and later Mr. McKenzie, the chair man, and Mr. Kling, a member of the committee, urged that it be given no further consideration. The house, however, having gagged the temperance people once, con cluded it best not to do it again, and so the bill was advanced to general orders, and one' of these days will get its quietus after a full discussion. The Alderman bill, or White bill —it was introduced by Senator Al derman in the upper chamber and Mr. White in the house—is now on the calendar without any amend ment except one to make its mean ing clear. This is the bill limiting saloons to one to each 500 of the population. There was con siderable opposition to it on the ground that it did not go far enough and that saloons ought to be limited to one to each 500 population in all cases. An attempt was made to amend the bill in committee in sev eral particulars, but all motions for that purpose were voted down. The bill provides really for one sa loon in each 500 of population or fraction thereof, and it was sought to make this read "major "fraction so that there would have to be at least 751 people in a village before it could have a second saloon, but the house wouldn't stand for it. It will without doubt become 'aw in its present form. There will be no primary legisla tion at this session, except that pos sibly some minor amendments may be made to the present primary law. The matter was threshed out in the senate last Thursday, when Senator Moonan's bill to extend the primary law to State officers, and Senator Canfield's bill to repeal the primary law and provide in its stead the convention system, with delegates elected at the primaries under proper safeguards, were un der consideration. But the house would neither extend the primary law to State officers nor repeal it. The fact is that while the primary law is not popular with representa tives, they do not as a general thing care to take the responsibility of appearing to take from the people that direct voice in the nomination of candidates they now exercise. "The people won't stand for it," I have heard men say a score of times if once. So Canfield's bill fared rather worse than Moonan's. For Cheap Rates and Free Sleeping Car, Lan Seekers Excursion TO: The house the same afternoon was a regular shambles. All kinds of bills were remorselessly slaugh tered. The house started in on drainage bills. The first of these to be killed was the Spooner bill providing that the State drainage commission may clean out and im prove streams not under Federal jurisdiction. Mr. Spooner did not press the bill, but insisted that the State should not commit itself to the policy of improving waters un der federal jurisdiction. Mr. Wells opposed even the Spooner bill as going too far, and thought the pre sent law which only requires the State to improve streams when the counties will pay half the cost bet ter. G. A. McKenzie had a bill ap propriating $15,000 for drainage in Sibley county. It got the ax. So did Spooner's bill appropriating $50,000 for improving the Chippewa river in Pope and Swift counties. Sunn Southern Alberta?? BY THE O.W.KERRCo. Minneapolis Mar.23 and 30 The Alberta Government one day last week guaran teed the building of 1350 miles of branch railway lines in Alberta. Having thus whetted its appetite, the house attacked the Kneeland bill providing for a constitutional convention. To pass it required 80 votes. It got only 62, altho it is admitted that the State needs a new constitution to take the place of the present patchwork one. The house neither was in the mood to accept a new constitution or any kind of one, so it killed the J. N. Johnson woman suffrage amend ment. It didn't want to know either whether women wanted to vote, so it put to sleep Mr. Ware's peculiar measure under which women were to be given the privil ege of saying whether they wanted the franchise or not. The house snuffed the life out of Mr. Brady's bill to repeal the anti-pass law, and it came near killing the bill to re move the eleven o'clock lid from the saloons of the three big cities. The members voted it down at all events in the committee of the whole by 48 to 35, which was as far as they could go at that time. La ter they are liable to change their minds. In itself, however, this was considered quite an afternoon's work. There may be something doing yet on the anti-cigarette bill which passed the house under suspension of the rules. It is made to look as if the senate committee on public health and pure food, to which it has been referred, would give it favorable recommendation, and word has been sent out that tobac co manufacturers and dealers will, if they wish, be given a hearing. The universal course pursued with regard to this bill is generally be lieved to have resulted from the fact that when before the house it was ignored by the tobacco trust. There was no profit in tihs. If the trust didn't sit up and take notice, what obect would there be in intro ducing legpulling bills. A blow was thus aimed at a most remuner ative branch of legislative industry. WRITE OR CALL ON What will result when the bill is being considered by the senate, of course, nobody knows, but, altho the majority of that body is not be lieved to have the reform very much at heart, they may conclude to pass the bill unless those inter ested in the manufacture and sale of coffin nails make some effort to prevent it. Senator Cushman is having rather better luck with his distance tariff bill in this than at the last session. To everybody's surprise, the senate railroad committee has recommend ed it for passage. The bill is a du plicate of the Iowa distance tariff law. Senator Wilson had a pet bill to promote the formation of trusts and combinations. It made provision to allow corporations to own and issue more than one kind of stock and to acquire stock in other cor porations. This is no joke. Sena tor Sullivan of Stillwater, who is understood to be an attorney for the Twin City Rapid Transit com pany, made an eleoquent plea for it on the ground that it was in fur therance of modern business me thods. This is no joke either. Even the senate couldn't go that far, however, and the bill was killed by a vote of 26 to 11. Ex-Attorney General Young last week for the first time at this ses sion displayed an active interest in legislative matters. He appeared before the house railroad commit tee in support of J. N. Johnson's anti-stockwatering bill and made a strong plea for it. Last year the State's legal department strongly urged the passage of the Rockne bill, which was similar.
