HE St. Cloud Journal-Press administers this characteristic rebuke to a southern Minnesota paper: The. Fairmont Sentinel, in a half column of hysterics, wants to know when the cases against lit. Gov. Jones and Thomas H. Shevlin for swiping government timber, are to be tried. Consid ering the fact that the only cases against these gentlemen origin ated in the vicious imagination of Democratic editors, the Sentinel should call off its fits. In this country cases are not tried until there are cases to try. This thing of ranting against a man because he has the ability to make money and has been indus trious enough to do it is old and has a musty" smell. The rebuke is deserved.

Eddy can not be prevailed upon to be still and one is about as picturesque in his method of campaigning as the other, but the newspapers are doing so much shouting for Dunn that Eddy has need for much speaking.
