Color of Apparei Frequently
Causes Hunters to be Mis
taken for Deer
Proper choice of clothing on the part
of hunters would prevent many serious
accidents in the woods during the deer
hunting season, as was explained last
night by Winn Powers, of St. Paul. He
was discussing a trip_ that he will make
next week into the northern woods in
pursuit of big game.
"A man is shot for a deer in the
woods," Mr. Powers said, "because he
looks like a deer. He is seldom seen
distinctly or else, of course, the mis
take wouldn't be made. He is not
seen plainly enough to demonstrate by
his form that he is not a deer. Only
his color makes the false suggestion.
Some Hunters Look Like Deer
"Yet, in spite of J this fact, which is
familiar, some hunters will persist in
wearing : the I brownish "5 or yellowish
coats and hats r that are found so con
venient when . shooting 1 ducks. Then, 1
naturally, you want to look as little like
a man as possible. -. Whether you look
like a . deer isn't " material.. - But In the
woods v during the - fall such a resem
■ blance may be fatal. •
jic"A; year or two ago,' I recall, I was
walking ; through ; the underbrush after
"deer. I came to a cranberry swamp. On
both sides of the path the undergrowth
was so thick I couldn't turn out. Just
then 1 heard a crackling sound. Some
thing along the edge .of ; the swamp,
something that looked yellowish brown
whenever I got =a . glimpse of it, was
coming -my way. It was r a deer, no
doubt, and I,,was bound to.get.it. I
dropped behind a log : and : leveled my
rifle. :. I , was waiting for the deer rto
come out into the open. But he didn't
leave the brush; till he was almost on
top of me. Then •- he said, *ugh! • and
scowled. ; .He was an Indian ■ hunter
wearing a yellowish brown felt, hat
and a yellowish coat.
,7 Red Band \ a Good ; Scheme
'.',- "Some deer" hunters have taken to
wearing a red band around their hats.
This is a good.scheme. Another is to
wear black or -decidedly dark clothes.
A third is to carry a dark silk. hand
kerchief - and ' never a white • one. A
white - handkerchief held in . the hand,
when seen through the' woods at a dis
tance, may look exactly like the white
of a deer's tail.
"Still a better plan "is to go where
you can keep in touch with the scat
tered residents throughout the woods.
They always take .. notice - of: the ap
proach of strangers and will generally
ask where the strangers intend to hunt.
In " that - way : you can usually manage
to secure , part of • the woods to your
self. 7 You won't 1 have to C take 5. any

■ A. B. Hill, of St. PauL and :S. R.
Armstrong, of :; Fergus Falls, students
at the state university, came very near
losing their eyesight in ,an accident in
the chemical laboratories yesterday
afternoon. : ' -
They were experimenting with hy
drogen and oxygen and after generat
ing the hydrogen neglected to remove
it from the apparatus before passing
the oxygen through. A light was
brought near the apparatus, and when
the smoke cleared away the: apparatus
had disappeared and in its place were
numerous small pieces of - glass scat
tered around the room and in the faces
of the two students. .' By a mere chance
none of" the glass penetrated into the
eyeballs of the boys, but one of them
had two pieces in his . eyelid. They
were immediately taken over to , the
medical building, where the «lass • was
removed from their faces. All the stu
dents had instructions to keep the ap
paratus , covered with wire screens
which .were furnished them and if
the instructions had been complied
with it would have been impossible for

HOW VICTORS AND
VICTIMS TOOK IT
County Building the Scene of
Usual Post-Election Trag
edy and Drama
The customary air of quiet which
follows a storm prevailed in the city
and county building all day yesterday.
Early in the morning several of the
candidates who tiad stayed in their
offices to hear the returns left and took
a rest. It could not be ascertained
if the defeated ones indulged in the
sleep which is supposed to dissolve all
suspense and rest the nerves afteY a
long and hard struggle.
The minor officeholders, whose offi
cial positions depend upon the eleotion
of the respective heads of their de
partments, were either looking very
gloomy, or very much encouraged. The
gloomy ones were makfng an extended
examination of their official heads and
wondering when the blow would fall.
Some were taking their prospective
loss of positions with a philosophical
air, while others wore the looks of
men who see a long, hard winter ap
proaching, and the coal bin empty.
The usual number of petty grafters
were around, each man waiting to ex
tend the right hand of graftship to the
successful ones, and pour out tales of
congratulations, usually supplemented
by a petition for Just enough to pur
chase one large stein of foaming bev
Judge Bazille Easy
Probate Judge Baxille wai the one
who attracted the greater part of the
attention along this line, for somehow
or other he has earned the name of
being rather easy, and possessing a
heart at all times susceptible to tales
of hard luck. A string of would-be
congratHlators wended their way up
the stairs leading to the probate court,
and each and every one told a story
calculated to touch even the heart of a
candidate in a hard race.
The county auditor requires sworn
statements of the expenses which each
candidate has incurred in his race for
office, but it is safe to say that the
aftermath of election brings about ex
penses which will never be brought to
light through the auditor's records.
Hot Fight on Sheriff
The sheriffs office was the pivotal
point of interest and the close fight of
ballots raging between Sheriff Phil C.
Justus and his opponent, Anton Mie
sen, coupled with the general under
current of feeling that the latter would
be successful, caused more than one
deputy sheriff to ponder over the out
look. The want ad pages of the daily
papers were eagerly scanned, for it is
thought that the entire force will move
out when Miesen moves in.
Mr. Justus was up and around the
greater part of the day. Chief Depu
ty Harter was in practical charge of
the work of the office, but the greater
part of ttioss pTeseut were" there ~6ut

Mr. Miesen received the returns at
his son's cafe and wore a look of great
pleasure as the precincts came in one
by one, and showed that at last Ije
was in a fair way to occupy a public
office in Minnesota. For years he has
been spending his money leading for
lorn hopes, and his unswerving loyalty
to his party has gained him a host
of friends. He polled a solid Demo
cratic vote and made inroads into the
standard Republican majorities.
"I shall not make any statement un
til the result is certain." he said. "It
is too early yet. If Mr. Justus Is
elected I shall be the first one to con
gratulate him and render him the
service one good citizen should ren
der another. We have waged a clean
campaign, leaving out personalities,
and I am pleased to say that Mr. Jus
tus has done the same thing. What

Gaiiick Tells the Story
"I regard my re-election by such an
overwhelming majority as a personal
indorsement from the citizens of my
city," he said. "The affairs of my
office have been conducted in such a
manner that not even the most rabid
Democrat could find a reasonable ex
cuse for criticism. We have scored a
victory which will go rolling and re
verberating down In the annals of the
Republican party as the grandest po
litical fight that the world has ever
witnessed. Starting with an under
current of opposition which for incon
sequential economic and philosophical
reasons resolved Itself Into a feeling
of fanaticism as the campaign pro
gressed. President Roosevelt has
proved himself a man equal to even
the most difficult emergency and am
ply demonstrated that' he is the peer of
all great leaders.
"The state fight, which resolved it
self into a partisan feud, is to be great
ly regretted. There seems no adequate
reason for the wholesale manner in
which Republicanism was eliminated
from the state question, and personal
difficulties and considerations substi
tuted. Mr. Dunn should have carried
the county by as large a plurality as
I did, for he, too, is a capable man,
and one thoroughly familiar with all
the troublesome questions which con
front an executive. The whole affair,
from Xhe state standpoint. Is one which
should cause Republicans momenta
rily to hang their heads in shame and
be chary to allow the flush of .militant
triumph to creep o'er their brows."
County Attorney Thomas R. Kane
was highly pleased with the manner
in which the voters had treated him.
While the full returns were not placed
before him in a manner sufficient to
dispel all doubt of the result, he was
reasonably certain that the question
has taken the turn where the actual
amount of his majority was the only
topic open for discussion. At the same
time he did not wish to say much re
garding his own candidacy, but con
fessed his delight at the turn affairs
had taken in the state question, and
early in the day sent congratulations
to the new governor-elect, John J>

such a majority that the Dunn element

"candidates \ have -.been: beaten ;by small

satisfaction j: has g, crept out regarding
the manner in which precincts i from :
the outlying districts have been sent in.
"The present election, however, looks
like such a landslide that there is no
room for ddubting that Mr. Johnson
Is elected. It is a tribute to a man of
sterling worth, and a man who not only
commands the respect and confidence
of his own party, but scores of thou
sand* of Republicans as well. The
voters have shown rare good judgment
in laying. £side party affiliations in
such an divergency as this and sending
the best man to the governor's chair.
"The national election was not a sur
prise to me, with the exception of the
great tot£ld rwn up by President
Rooseveft. *The lack of an issue seems
to have been the great trouble. The
party platforms of both parties offered
so rouch'Jti common that the voters de- ]
elded not to make a change and take
chances of the Introduction of a new
policy in national affairs."
Assistant County Attorney O'Neil

"Thomas R. Kane," he said, "has
been the most efficient county attorney
that Ramsey county has had for years.
In fact, I cannot recall any similar of

for a third term iy a glowing token of
the esteem in which he is held.
Third Terms Unfortunate
"It sennas to me, now'ever, that the
people registered a mild protest against
third terms in the manner in which
they handled Mr. Metzdorf and Mr.
j Justus. There ia no doubt that Mr.
Metzdorf has made a capable county
treasurer, and I regret exceedingly to
see him returned to private life."
Clerk of Courts E. G. Rogers was
elated over the national result, al

fact that Mr. Duns had failed to carry

LAWS OF MINNESOTA
Maine Hunter Says Season Is
Too Short and License for
Outsiders Too High
According to Wallace F. Clement, of
Auburn, Me., the Minnesota game laws
are all wrong, and, in the interests of
the state, should meet with a change
all along the line- at the next meeting
of the legislature. Mr. Clement sug
gests a number of the changes which
he declares have made Maine the an
nual Mecca for thousands of sports
men from all over the East, and which
he says will have the same effect if
put in force in Minnesota.
"The season is too short." said Mr.
Clement at the Frederic last night.
"You allow but thirty days of an open
season on deer and moose, when there
should be at least six weeks in which
to kill the animals. To overcome this
long open season, the number of deer
which each man or woman is allowed
to kill should be cut down to two. This
is all that the average hunter wants,
and the extra one is usually a waste of
'■Your high license for hunters out
side the state is also wrong. A flat fee
of say $1, upon the payment of which
shipping tags should be granted, is
about the right amount. The large fee
keeps hundreds of hunters away from
the state and deprives the business in
terests of many thousands of dollars.
"Deer are multiplying so rapidly that
the state can afford to have many
killed each year. The business inter
• ests should receive some attention from
the legislators. Many hotels would be
established in the northern parts of
the state, where fishing and hunting
abounds and the owners of those hotels
would derive a big profit from hunters
outside of the state each year. They
could also give employment to a large
number of woodsmen as guides, having
licensed guides, as we have in Maine. '
"Hunters from outside of the state
would come in droves, and they are the
kind of hunters who would be welcome.
They are the experienced men who
would not be killing off other men in
stead of deer, and who would have the
money to spend and make their stay
in the state profitable to your citizens.
"Instead, you have a high license fee.
which drives them away in the first
place. Then you have an open season
of but twenty days, which is too short
to attract people. Not that they want
to stay more than two weeks at a time,
but the limit is so short that every one
cannot arrange to come here during
the twenty days.
"I spend two weeks every fall in the
woods of Maine, usually in the Moose
head lake region, and at the hotels
there I see men from Kansas City,
Omaha, St. Loupis and other places
registered, when there is no reason
that they should not be attracted to
Minnesota, for the deer in the northern
part of this state abound in great num
