The Minnesota Valley and the •oatbern tiers of counties area veri table Sleepy Hollow and it won't do. Will the Democrats Lesson? Heed the From present indications it would eeem as tfao the National Democratic Congestion would encounter a struggle similar to that which marred Abe proceedings of the Republican Rational Convention and brought it to an ignominious close at Chicago Saturday evening. The contest be tween Fake and Fat 'Which held the iboards at the Coliseum for six days leaves the Grand Old Party hopelessly disrupted and makes its defeat at theplaces polls this fall absolutely inevitable sued the formation of a third party not only*possibility but a probability. The men about whom the fight waged ware in reality mere figure heads. Taft certainly had no enthusiastic followers. He was simply the can* didateto whose support the men inunsightly oontrol of the party machinery, the xeaottonarles, the friends of the protected interests, rallied. Any other candidate would have served their purpose just as well, so long as he was willing to do their bidding. la the case of Roosevelt the con ditions were somewhat different. His personality was strong enough to rally to his support, delegates who were for him first, last and all the time. Nevertheless, the bulk of his swjsporters would have been willing to throw their allegiance to any other progressive in case of a deadlock, if with such new candidate, they could kiave wrested the party machinery from the men now in control and in fused into the platform to be adopted progressive principles. The steam roller, however, put into Operation by the standpatters did itsCurrency Aeadly work. It never slipped a cog and enough contested delegates favorable to Taft were seated to give the conservatives absolute control of the convention and the program as Mtlined by them was carried thru without a hitch. They carried the day but wrecked the party and the pro gressive Republicans have become JLndqpendents to be reckoned with in the fail election. A similar conflict between the re-Total av&iutnnw and progressive elements in the Democratic party is on and will abase to be fought out at the Baltimore •Convention this week. Will the Dasneorats heed the lesson taught by the-Chicago Convention and name as their standard bearer a progressive of the west pronounced type and by so doiag draw to their support, the pro gressive Republicans who were voted outrf their party at Chicago or will they follow in the footsteps of their political opponents and name a con servative? If they should be foolish «a0ugb to do the latter, a new party Sa bound to arise out of the ruins of froth old parties which cannot help but draw to it all honest, intelligent voters irrespective of former party affilia tions. And they may be formidable enough to carry the day in the coming election. If the Democrats are not wittiogtoread the signs of these times aright, let the Deluge engulf them as it has already engulfed the Re-Cash publican party. Only good can come to the country by a signal defeat of eonservatives of all parties and forOther that reason we welcome the struggle flbat is now on. A Growing City. •Our readers may not have noticed it bat New is making a steady growth this year. It is not a so-Total called "boom" either of prices or tmiUHng but just a good, healthy, atasarai growth, which is the best possible growth any city can have. A number of new residences have •already *een erected this spring, aethers seeiaow in process of erection '^sassd ground is being broken and fewwdations being placed Tor still twajhsea. These include modern &»S.?'if JSaSitSi^t-—ht iKnj dwellings, oottagas and the popular bungalows. Ordinarily the desirable residence building lots in a growlog olty are held at a premium bat the oontrary Is true in the ease of New Ulm. There are many deetrable residence lots which can be secured at a very reasonable price. This Is eneoursglag for it gives oocasion for the belief that a continued growth may be expected. The natural advantages whioh New Ulm has, give us an opportunity to grow and develop. We should make the most of these advantages by encouraging the Immigrants who areCurrency flocking to Minnesota from Iowa and Illinois and other states. The growth of population would have been faster had there been more houses to rent. The reasonable price of building lots will tend to overcome this obstacle. But while we are congratulating ourselves on the steady growth we have been and are making we should lose sight of the fact that If weDue expect and desire to enjoy such a continued growth we must progress with the times and Improve and our city wherever possible. Along this line It may be permissable to call attention to some of the defects which stranger would notiee when visiting New Ulm. Upon coming up town from either of the depots the stranger will un doubtedly be favorably impressed with the beautiful "White Way" method of street lighting, the sub-20th stantial business blocks and per manent side walks but the effect produced by the unsightly line of hitching posts may sadly mar an otherwise favorable impression. To a stranger gaining his first impression of our city the defect would be especially noticeable and the finding of this one defect may cause him to look for other similar ones. In many of this size the hitching posts have been removed to or placed on the side streets. Owing to the location of our business district this may be hard to do but there seems no serious obstacle in the way of adopting some one design of post and following this idea out and eliminating the more and misshapen ones. Many of those in use now are badly bent a&d out of line as well as being of several different designs. Those of cement and the smaller, neat metal ones would harmonize quite well with the rest of the street equipment. The result of such a change would, we believe, be pleasing and municipally profitable. BANK NO 172.
