For several weeks past many
of the weekly papers of the state
have been giving over the most
of their editorial space to the
making of political predictions.
Every possible and not few im
possible candidates for governor
to succeed Van Sant have been
mentioned and their merits ex
tensively discussed. Something
tangible now appears to
emerging from the sticky mess.
The Minneapolis Tribune of yes
terday has the following to say
on the gubernatorial situation:
'The gubernatorial situation in
this state is developing. From
the present outlook there will be
a three-cornered fight for the
nomination in the state conven
tion next year between Robert
C. Dunn, Frank M. Eddy and
Gov. Van Sant or some man on
whom his mantle will be placed.
Frank Eddy has been an active
candidate for the past two
months at least and makes no
denial of his intention to stay in
the game to the finish.
^"Bob" Dunn and JoelHeatwole,
who affected a partial alliance
during the legislative session
last winter, but who seemed to
have drifted apart after adjourn
ment, met in St. Paul Tuesday
and recemented the former union
in a manner which it is believed
will stick until the convention
finishes its work.
Since that time the agents of
both men have shown renewed
activity throughout the state and
have done some work right here
in Hennepin county, where they
count on Lieutenant Governor
Jones for material assistance.
Gov. Van Sant's position has
not changed. He is not a can
didate yet in the sense of setting
up the pins in his own behalf,
but he is slowly veering around
to the point where he may say he
will accept the third nomination
if it is tendered him.
This is all his friends desire at
this time as it gives them a post
to tie to until the situation devel
ops and they may tind it wiser to
pick out some new man who
stands for the same things that
Gov. Van Sant does.
It is in th mouths oi" a great
many Republicans that Judge
Robert Jamison is that man, al
though he has consistently dis
claimed any such ambition.
A YOUNG man in Duluth
brought ruin upon himself and
his employer, a banker, by em
bezzling $48,000 and losing it in
speculation through a bucket
shop. His salary was $70 a
month. The bucket shop men
knew this to be a fact and yet
they t6ok from him check after
check drawn for amounts rang
ing from $1,000 to $5,000. The
young mau will go to jail. The
bucket shop? Oh, it will keep
on doing business at the same
old standand in the same old
Not Anxious to Succeed Root as Sec
retary of War.
Manila, Aug. 15.It is believed that
Gov. Taft has not as yet received a
definite proffer of the war portfolio to
succeed Secretary Root. He refuses
to be interviewed on the subject. Out
It is known that he does not desire to
leave the islands. His departure would
involve a strong personal sacrifice, as
he would have to abandon his unselfish
devotion to the task of Improving the
condition of the Filipinos. He has said
often that he hopes for an opportunity
to complete the problem and FPP xh"
result of his work. The situation, he
thinks, is f-'st reaching a condition
where results are visible.
