f(ewUlm Review
Wednesday April 4th, 1900.
ADVICES from the second district, says
the Minneapolis Journal, indicate a
growing opposition to Representative
THE farmer* who want new carriages
and wagons find that the trust has just
shoved up prices another notch. But
there is no trust to put up the price of
WITH the opposition to McCleary that
has arisen since his vote ou the Porto
Rican tariff bill, and the fact that there
seems at this time but little liklihood of
the opposing tactions getting together,
it would seem as if there is a pretty
good'chance for the democrats of the sec
ond district break into the Minnesota
So far as the Demociats are concerned
they are perfectly willing to go to the
country on the failure of the republicans
to legislate either with good sense or
good faith. As for the trusts they pre
fer the Dingley tariff whatsoever. The
longer they can keep Porto Rico on
tenter hooks the more easily can they
absorb its valuable properties at their
own figure.
THE trusts, for the protection of
which some of our representatives in
congress are so solicitous,have taken an
other fall out of the newspapers. This
time it is the type founders who have
arbitrarily jumped the prices of their
product up the scale from five to twenty
per cent, upon the threadbare pretext,
"added cost of material and labor."
AND SO it appears that Gov. Lind and
his prison board, regardless of the bowls
of an opposition press, are doing some
thing for the farmers of the state that
even the Minneapolis Journal must com
mend. In compliance with the sugges
tion of the governer, Judge Canty was
sent to Manila, to investigate the matter
of securing hemp for the manufacture
of binding twine at the state institution at
Stillwater,with the result that it is found
that hemp can be shipped from thePhil
ippines via Hongkong and Seattle and
laid down is Stillwater for nearly two
ceuts per pound less than New York
A Candidate for the republican nom
ination for mayor who was not long
since lh democrat
has always been
considered by the republicans as a dem
agogue and a representative of the worst
tjpe of the municipal politician has so
many thousands of names on his petition
that seine alarm is felt lest he should
be nominated under the new system
where he would have had no chance uu
der the old. Should he be nominated,
thousands of republicans well esteem it
theii duty both to work and vote against
him,—Minneapolis Journal.
The Journal doubtless refers to the
genial Dr. Ames, whose return to the
republican fold was hailed with such
great gusto by the Minneapolis papers a
short time a*o. The doctor has long
since learned that the republecans of
Minneapolis have no time for. hitn ex
cept upon occasions when they can use
hiui for their own selfish purposes. When
they want to get in a shot 'it John Lind
they trot him out as an eminent demo
crat who has "reformed," but when he
wants something for himself he is a dan
gerous demagogue. Funny, isn't it?
The cotton mills of South Carolina
have voluntarily raised the wages of
their employes because of the improved
condition of business and have thereby
east another element of demoralization
into the calamity campaign which is soon
to be set on foot in that section.—Min
neapolis Tribune.
Like all good republican journals the
Minneapolis Tribune fails to give more
than one side of the story. It is true
that the cotton mill operators have vol
untarily giveu their employees a ten per
cent raise in wages, but why does not
the Tribune make note of the forty per
cent raise in the price of cotton goods
which has gone into effect within the
past few months. Inquiry at any of the
large retail establishments in Minneapo
lis^will show the editor of the Tribune
that this statement is absolutely correct
and that cotton goods formerly sold to
the trade at from three and a half to
four and a half cents per yard now bring
five and a half at wholesale, and for
goods which formerly retailed at five,
cents per yard the consumer must now
pay seven cents. THE REVIEW is not a
calamity howler. It is ready to aver,
with the Tribune, that the country is
prosperous, but it is nevertheless a fact
that the raise in wages about which so
much is said is not at all commensurate
with the increase in price of the neces
sities which the laborer must buy. Be
virtuous and you will be happy is a
well known maxim, but be truthful and
and you will be respected is equally as
HB new Philippine CommJMiotais
preparing to be abaentat Jeaat two year*.
It ia stated that the cimimiimonia invest
ed by the president with plenary powers
in dealing with the natives. This mere
ly means that the republicans -will nse
the new commission as their man of
straw daring the campaign. Ifr-will be
cited as an effort to establish a peaceful
government in the islands. The-roterg
will be asked to return the republicans
to power in order that the commission
may have time in which to report. The
administration shows a paucity of inven
tion in this plan for dealing with the
Philippines. Haven't we had one eom
mission? Didn't it go through the farce
of sending out proclamations and setting
op comic opera municipal governments!
What is the use of repeating the' per
formance? What kind of a civil govern
ment can be established when there are
any number of islands which the United
States has never occupied at all and
when the subjugation of Luzon is solisten
theoretical in character that the Spanish
residents beg foi another year in which
to make up their minds whether they
will continue in allegiance to Spain or
change to the power which can keep a
peaceful government in Luzon?
First prize in the Journal Junior's
weekly contest was taken last week by
Lillian M. Juni, a 9th grade pupil in
the public schools of this city, who told
the story of her father's captivity with
the Indians during the memorable days
of '62. The tale as told by her, is as fol
On the morning of Aug. 18,1862, as
the men of a certain family near Mor
ton were about to go to work, they
were informed that the Sioux Indians
were on the warpath. Hasty prepara
tions for flight were made and the son,
a boy of 10 years, was sent to warn'the
neighbors. On his way he was met by
two Indians the younger immediately
strung his bow, but the other bade him
desist, fot he recognized the boy, with
whose father he had often traded. He
was obliged to follow them to their
camp. At this time the spirit of war
was on among the savages- and it was
seemingly by a miracle that the boy
was not killed. After a day's fighting,
some of the young bucks, their blood
still boiling with the fervor of battle,
would seize the Pasquah, White Head,
as the boy was called, by the hair, in
tending to scalp him. But he was al
ways rescued by some of the older ones.'
One day a battle raging across the
river caused commotion in camp and
an old squaw, deeming it unsafe for the
boy, took him into the neighboring
woods, concealing him in a hollow tree.
Towards evening a storm came on and
tli« boy, being cold" and wet, decided to
go back to camp. On another occasion
an^old Indian rolled him up in a buffalo
robe and when they came in to search
the tent",he sat down on it, calmly smok
ing his pipe. Thus the boy passed seven
long weeks in captivity. Sometimes in
deadly peril of his life, at other times
treated with great kindness. But as
every one knows, the Indians were sub
dued and the troops rescued the hero
of this story, who was my father
Old settlers! What a story is hidden
away in those two words! And what a
treasure they are to a town with all
their tales of hardships and experience.
New Ulm has had many of them in her
days and has many still—old men now
on the last rounds of the ladder of life.
There is Col. Pfaender for instance,
whose history is so closely interwoven
with that of the town. For many years
he served the state as a soldier, legisla
tor and state official, hut he is still act
ive and daily gives his attention to his
insurance and real estate transactions,
which have now reached large' propor
tions. Then there is Jonn C. Rudolph, a
leading state politician, banker, legisla
tor, land office receiver and now retired
and Jacob Pfenmnger, who walked into
town in 1855, healthy and robust in his
old age Wm. Hummel, actively engaged
in business though well along in years
Peter Scherer, still conducting a lumber
yard with good success Dr. Weschcke,

Yes, August Flower still has the larg
est sale of any medicine in the civilized
world. Your mothers,and grandmothers,
never thought of using anything else for
Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors were
scarce, and they seldom heard of Appen
dicitis, Nervous Prostration or Heait
failure etc. They used Agust Flower to
clean out the system and stop fermenta
tion of undigested food aegulate the ac
tion of the liver, stimulate the nervous
and orgonic action of the system, and
that is all they took when feeling dull
fend bad with headaches and other aches.
You only need a few doses of Green's
Flower, in liquid from, to make
you satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with you. Sample bottles at
