We. i 8 15 22 29 Th. 2 9 Fr. 3 10 17 24 Sa. 4 II 18 5 6 7 Those who contend for incor poration under the general laws deny the claims of. the charter advocates. But thus^ far they have been content with mere denial and have offered no argu ments in favor of incorporation under the general laws or against the charter plan. It is certainly up to those who urge incopora tion under the general laws of the state to give a reason for their position. Charges of grafting will avail neither party anything in this discussion. Grafting is as much possible under one plan as under the other. If the charter plan will enable Bemidji to govern itself as it pleases, let us have it and the quicker the better. The charter people have offered some pretty convincing proof that their plan is feasible and efficient. If the advocates of the general law plan know differently it is up to them to put the people in pos session of the facts. BIG ENOUGH FOR EVERYBODY. A candidate for governor who has any regard for his oath of office will stand for the fearless and impartial enforcement of law and will show no favoritism to corpo rations or individuals.R. C. DUNN. Candidates for governor in Minnesota have been building their platforms of various drift wood which they think will catch the people's eye, but here is a platform that is one solid piece big enough for every man in the state to stand on. It admits of no shifts or evasions it permits the man who stands on it but one course. The platforms of other candi dates are patched up to catch votes. They are promises of What the candidate will do if nominated and elected. But the platform of Bob Dunn is simply a summary of what he always has done. No man has ever en forced the laws of Minnesota so thoroughly and effectively as has Bob Dunn, and that is just the 1 12 19 26 16 23 30 13 20 27 14 21 28 25 MAKE NO MISTAKE. In incorporating as a City Be midji can r. ot afford to make a mistake. It is claimed by the advocaces of the charter plan of government that incorporation under the general laws of the state will forever debar the city from adopting a charter peculiar to its needs and from modifying its system of government to meet changing conditions. In support of this contention the advocates of the charter plan cite the lawlar. and three different decisions of the supreme court. They also: reinforce their position by an opinion from the office of the at-1* torney general. reason why the people are de manding that he be made gover nor. The man who has been tried and never found wanting is the man we are looking for. And we are going to have him. The petty plans of the field to stern the tide that is sweeping Dunn on to the governorship reminds us of Dame Partington attempt ing to sweep back the Atlantic ocean. Dame Partington did her best, but the Atlantic ocean was too much for her. GOVERNOR VAN SANT'S I LOOKS I dictum of whom the republicans must nominate to succeed him recalls the fact that he issued a similar 'bull" last winter in the speaker ship fight.

Forty-five residents of Wadena county have put their lives in the hands of others and are ranging the north woods for big game. A Wrightstown man picked ripe wild strawberries in his field November 6th. This particular Wadena county town seems to be all right. "There are enough grafters in the postal service to form a horti cultural society of their own," cleverly observes the Red Lake Courier. Walker is feeling very nicely, thank you, over the fact that the first term of court to be held in that fine Cass county court house will begin tomorrow. We are informed in great big headlines that all slot machines have been ordered out at East Grand Forks. So the reforms of last June's grand jury in Polk county endured for but a very brief season?
