We. 1 8 15 To. 2 9 12 19 16 22 29 23 30 The Pioneer is convinced that the people of the state desire to make Robert C. Dunn of Prince ton the next governor of the state and that they do well to so desire. But we would not for one moment take a mean disad vantage of Judge Collins or any other candidate. He may be eligible despite the facts stated, above, although the case appears to be a very plain one. We await with interest the explanation which Judge Collins must now make. WHILE the merger question in itse|f may nob be a direct issue in the coming campaign in Min nesota the enforcement of the law will be an issue as the Pioneer has heretofore taken pains to de clare. I is an issue whether great corporations, which are merely great business enterpri ses, shall be a law' unto them selves or whether they shall obey the laws of the state. No man can be elected to office next fall who does not stand squarely for the enforcement of the laws of the state. MR.

A correspondent of the Minne apolis Tribune has raised the startling question of Judge Col lins'eligibility to be made gover nor of Minnesota. It is pointed out that the con stitution of the state prohibits any judicial officer in the state from accepting any other office within the-state, except it be a judicial office, during con- tinuance of his term of office." The supreme court has ruled directly upon the case and has construed the words "during the continuance of his term of office" to mean the term for which he was elected. The decision was rendered by the court while Judge Collins was a member and to the decision he gave his assent. II}. is therefore claimed that Judge Collins is ineligible as a candi date for governor. of Minnesota made an elaborate argument against Cuban reciprocity in the house yesterday" The MtmTe7 sota reciprocity league should take Mr. S tevens outside and talk Norwegian to him for a small space of time.

DISCUSSES SOCIALISM. Federation of Labor Involved in a Heated Debate. Boston, Nov. 19.Discussion of the question as to whether the American Federation of Labor sliou.d place it self on record as favoring socialism was resumed during the day at the convention. Th matter came up Tuesday when the committee on reso lutions reported "unfavorable" five resolutions, the adoption of any rule which meant the pledging of the fed eration to some form of socialism. D. \V. Richmond, president of the Railway Clerks' International associa tion, declared that his organization would withdraw if the federation adopted socialistic ideas. Unanimous consent was refused Del egate Charles Dodd of the Pianomak ers' union of Chicago to Introduce a resolution urging wageworkers to vote for trade unionists for municipal, state and national officers. Charles Lavin, the delegate from Wilkesbarre, urged the convention to adopt the resolutions. argued that there was something wrong with the body politic and that socialism would cure the evils. Delegates Kreft of Philadelphia and Slayton of Newcastle, Pa., addressed the chair in opposition to the commit tee's unfavorable report, the former saying that no political party except the Socialist had made reference in its platform in Pennsylvania last year to the coal strike. The socialist resolutions were re jected by a vote of 11,282 to 2,285. CLOSES ITS EVIDENCE. Government Rests in Bribery Case at Cincinnati. Cincinnati, Nov. 19.The govern ment during the day closed its evi dence in the trial of D. V. Miller and J. M. Johns, charged with conspiracy to extort a bribe from John J. Ryan, a turf commissioner.

Additional reports of inspectors and telegrams between the defendants and Ryan were offered as the closing evi dence. Joseph M. Johns, in his own de fense, occupied the witness box most of the forenoon, going over the story of his dealing with Ryan and showing through checks and vouchers what was'done with the $4,500 secured from John J. Ryan, none going to D. V. Mil ler. GRAFTED A N EAR. Successful Operation Performed Upon a Millionaire. Philadelphia, Nov. 19.Dr. Andrew L. Nelson of New York during the day performed the operation of grafting an ear upon the head of a Western mil lionaire, whose name the surgeon says he is under itpnd. not to reveal.
