To avoid the payment of such a vast sum
as this they could well afford to dispense
lots of boodle to induce the members of
the late Republican Legislature —120 ma
jority—to absent themselves or vote
against measures and of course, as a re
sult Judge? ? Chandler, of the Milwaukee,
is pleased, but we wonder whether Ros
well Miller, of said road, and Marvin
Hughett, of the Northwestern, would be
pleased to go on the witness stand and
answer certain questions we might put to
them touching the alleged election of
Knute Nelson to the United States Sen
ate, and at the same time produce for in
spection certain letters, books and tele
grams—and while on that subject sup
pose Tams Bixby should produce the tele
grams sent and received by him, and also
recount the disbursements made by or
under his direction during the last cam
paign. Possibly the facts might develop
the fact that some of the Republican
boodle found its way into the pockets of
so-called Democratic and Pop workers,
and a few organs that have oft been for
sale to the highest bidder.
It is a fact known to the writer and one
he can prove, that certain of the political
and sanctimonious thieves who have pol
luted by their presence and touch every
thing that is sacred in the state, the na
tion and the church, robbing alike the
widow, the orphan, the railroad and the
school fund of this state; thieves by na
ture, instinct, precept and practice, but
masquerading under the cloak of respect
ability,. patriotism and religion, have by
theft and fraud acquired vast tracts of
railroad lands shows to be worth $l2O an
acre or twenty times the average price
we have set. Hence it is possible the
amount of taxes out of which the state
has been so defrauded and robbed may
approach nearer $200,000,000 than $14,-
000,000.
No wonder the railroad bosses in and
out the leadership of the various political
parties are averse to any agitation of this
subject; no wonder the producing classes
of this state are loud in denouncing the
men and methods allowing such a state
of affairs to exist or be inaugurated.
Hundreds, aye, thousands of millions of
dollars stolen from the state and nation
by the corporations and Sunday school
teachers who have amassed their fortunes
by every device known to the annals of
crime, only to use the same as continued
and nefarious engines of oppression,
wrong and robbery—prostituting every
branch of the government and the church
to further their villainous designs, and
later on we may give a history of their
rape of the school fund.
Then rise, freemen, rise;
Strike for your rights;
Your homes, your little ones.
Then rise, freemen, rise,
And with these lights,
Prepare your ballot guns.

MONOPOLY MILDEW.
(By Paul Fontaine.)
July 3rd the Chicago Board of Trade
was the scene of a wild patriotic demon
stration,* when several young members
exploded some cannon firecrackers. Pres
ident Baker suspended them for 30 days.
•Still the times grow better. Over 300
wire-drawers, at Cleveland, struck for an
advance of 10 per cent in their wages.
What is the matter with the monopoly
reports of Bradstreet and Dun’s agencies
and the monopoly Press Associations?
They do not report an advance in wages
except from the few concerns that have
been forced to restore a portion of the
reductions made in 1893.
An Indiana gas company fails. —Seven-

Natural Gas Company, by the farmers

again in the soup. When will he learn
to co-operate for his own benefit?
Here you go again!—lt is said that Ohio
is the Barrier; all railroads across that
river are banded against Chicago, which
deprives that city of vast trade. The
Southern Railway lAsssociation shuts that
city out of its territory The people of
Chicago, like all the people of other states,
should vote for government ownership of
railroads and all this robbery, rebates,
pass and. discrimination, would disappear.
Until our people learn this simple and
necessary lesson we hope and pray that
they will be robbed and plundered as they
richly deserve.

BEGGING FOR WORK.
LARGE CROWD,OF UNEMPLOYED AP
PEAL TO MAYOR PRATT FOR SOME
THING TO DO.
(Morning Tribune, June 28.)
An unusually large crowd of unem
ployed laborers gathered in the office of
Mayor Pratt yesterday begging for aid in
securing work. A majority of the men
were inclined to find fault with the city
officials for not shifting crews oftener, and
allowing the unemployed to work a month
at a time and then giving the other fel
lows a chance. One of the men said last
year he worked two months, and this year
two days up to date. The poor fellow was
desperate. He has eight children to sup
port, and grocers refuse to Aid him with
out pay. There are hundreds in the same
predicament. The mayor was powerless
to do more than lend his influence to se
cure a rearrangement of the employment
system.
There is some talk among the city offi
cials of either starting a municipal em
ployment bureau, to be controlled by the
police department, or else placing all pri
vate bureaus under closer surveillance.
• THE GRESHAM LAW.
THOSE THINGS ARE NOT THE BEST
WHICH ARE THE DEAREST AND
HARDEST TO GET.
A great many years ago Sir Thomas
Gresham, an English authority on the
money question, declared that good
money and poor ,money couldn’t circulate
together; but that the poor money would
drive the good money out of the country.
The idea was that if there were different
kinds of money in circulation and more
than enough to do the business with, the
best money would get out of the way and
leave the field to the worst. For exam
ple, if there were silver dollars worth a
bushel of wheat each and gold dollars
worth two bushels each, the gold dollars
would get out of the way and leave the
silver dollars to do the work. The fact is
unquestionable. It is only with the defi
nitions used that I find fault. To say
that bad money will drive out good is to
beg the question. The best money is the
money that will stay and do money’s
work. The worst money is the money—
no matter how much its metal is worth as
a commodity—that runs away and re
refuses to do money duty. Cheap money
will drive out dear money. So will cheap
flour drive out dear flour; so will cheap
clothing drive out dear clothing; so will
cheap labor drive out dear labor. That
w T hich will do the work or perform the
service satisfactorily at the least cost, is
always the be3t means to use. If silver
will do our metal money work, and costs
less than gold, then it is because it is a
better money, all things considered,
rather than a poorer money, that it would
drive ouj gold. The servant that stands
by us and does our work in a pinch is a
better servant than the one that runs
away. Gold flies out of the country when
silver is made the standard, or when pa
per comes into use, because it is so scarce
and costs so much to get that it is not the
best thing to perform the money func
tion. Yes, cheaper money drives out
dearer money. Dearer money flies to the
' melting pot. But it is not the case of
worse money taking the place of better.
It is a case of better, even if cheaper,
money, taking the place of that which is
worse, even if dearer.
There w’as once a country in which
they didn’t know much about any other
metal except gold and so made their plows
of it. After a time somebody introduced
iron plows, and when people found they
would do the work just as well as gold
ones, and were very much cheaper, they
refused to buy any more of the dear ones
and used only the cheap ones. And then
some would-be philosopher wrote it down
as an economic law that poor (cheap)
plows would always drive good (dear)
ones out of the country. And for a hun
dred years people went on echoing his
saying, as if it was the end of all wisdom.
After that time some reformers began
timidly to suggest that a thing wasn’t
necessarily better because it cost more
and was harder to get or Seep.—Star and
Kansan.

THE REPRESENT ATI VM, WEDNESDAY, JUET 10. 1895.
DUNN’S LETTER.
Tbe Late Anditor Sends a Commnnica
tiea to tbe Lead Com
missioner.
Position of linnesota with Reference to
Her Bwamp Lands ia Clearly ✓
Ontlined.
The following letter from State Auditor
Dunn to S. W. Lamoreaux, commission
er of the general land office, is now in
the hands of the United States official
at Washington. It is a plain statement
of the position taken by the state of
Minnesota in regard to its swamp lands,
and it is hoped will do much to secure a
speedy settlement with the general land
office.
Some time ago Commissioner Lamo
reaux appointed a special agent, James
M. Farrell, to make an examination of
certain surveyed townships in the Du
luth land district, where it is alleged
the surveys are inaccurate and the field
notes incorrect, and it is with a reference
to Mr. Farrell’s work that the letter com
mences. It is not improbable that if Spe
cial Agent Farrell finds serious errors
in the field notes and survey which was
made by the government surveyors be
tween 1889 and 1890, that the whole dis
trict involved may be resurveyed.
“Hon. S. W. Lamoreaux, Commissioner
of the General Land Office, Washington,
D. C.—Dear Sir: The special examiner,
James M. Farrell, appointed by you to
examine certain townships in the Du
luth land district of this state, has in con
formity with your instruction notified
the state of ‘Minnesota of the fact, and
has set a date for a hearing, when the
state may submit evidence as to the
character of the land.
“In accordance with the permission by
you through Platt B. Walker, who at
present is in Washington, charged with
a mission the object of which is to en
deavor to ascertain the condition of a
large amount of swamp land situated
in all parts of Minnesota, particularly
the southern counties, which was select
ed as swamp many years ago, but for
which the state has received no patent
and our recor.ds do not show w T hat dispo
sition has been made of the land; and
also to reach an understanding with the
general land office as to a rule that shall
govern the evidence and admission of
testimony in swamp land contests, T/
have appointed a special examiner to
accompany your special examiner in the
field for the purpose of securing evi
dence for the state as to the character
of the lands so examined.
“It is my earnest wish to have this ex
amination made in a fair and thorough
ly impartial manner. There is no desire
on the part of the state of Minnesota or
the officials charged with the adminis
tration of its laws to obtain any lands
to which the state is not clearly entitled
under the different acts of ongress grant
ing swamp lands to the state of Minne
sota: and if there is any doubt existing
as to the accurracy of the surveys of
townships, or if there is any evidence
discovered indicating that there have
been mistakes or misrepresentations as
to the character of lands, I wish to assure
you that I feel that it is greatly to the
interest of the state of Minnesoa to have
any errors retified as early as possible.
“I will therefore take great pleasure in
doing all in my power to facilitate the
re-examination of such lands in which
there is reason to doubt the correctness
of the field notes or the survey, and the
state will lose no time in presenting its
evidence or testimony in all such cases.
“In a notice of hearing received from
your special agent, James M. Farrell,
on June 14, 1895, and dated June 10, there
is enumerated 22 townships which he is
to examine. These are: 54-17, 56-16, 58-
19, 59-17, 18 and 19; 60-15, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22
and 23; 61-15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22; and
62-22 and 23.
“I beg to draw your attention to the
fact that in five of the townships in
cluded in this list the swamp land, as
shown by the original survey and field
notes, has been with the exception of a
few tracts, patented by the state. These
patented towns are 60-15, 18 and 23; 61-15
and 62-23. A considerable portion of the
swamp land so patent*! has been deed
ed by the state to railroad companies
claiming land grants from the state.
“The state of Minnesota is perfectly
willing to accept the report of Mr. Far
rell, or any other*' competent agent of
the general land office, as to the charac
ter of lairds which it might claim under
the swamp land act of March 12, 1860,
after an examination made by such
agent, in company with the agent of the
state, and will offer no objection to Mr.
Farrell’s report being made final in the
determination of the character of such
lands. The state of Minnesota has every
confidence in the justness of the inten
tions of the general land office and its
commissioner, and, as in 1860-61, when the
governor of Minnesota agreed to accept
the field notes of the government survey
ors as the basis for the selection of its
swamp lands, it now relies upon the
ability and impartiality of the govern
ment examiners and surveyors.
“I recognize that this is most important
to this state that th£ government field
notes and surveys should be reliable and
accurate, otherwise the state is left in a
state of doubt as to what swamp lands it
owns Or is entitled to own. If doubt ex
ists as to the accuracy of the field notes
the quicker these doubts are set at rest
by a careful examination, and, if neces
sary, a resurvey, the greater advantage
it will be to the state.
“I would draw your attention to the
passage of a law by the legislature of the
state of Minnesota (Chapter 2, General
Laws of Minnesota, 1893) providing that
after March 24, 1895, the railroad com
panies within the state, to which swamp
lands have been granted, shall no longer
have the right to make their own selec
tions, but that their grants shall be filled
by selections made by the state land com
missioner.
“With the operation of this law in pros
pect, the land-grant railroad companies,
in the two years between the passage
of the act and the date in which it went
into effect, hastened to complete their
selections as far as possible, and on
March 24, 1895, there only remained three
roads whose state grants were not prac
tically filled. To two of these roads there
only remained 80,000 acres, while the
third company, which made no attempt
to complete its selections, still claim
403,000 acres, under a grant, the validity
of which I have some reason to dispute
and which is in doubt.
“You will see, therefore, that the state
of Minnesota, and the state alone, is now
concerned in securing its swamp lands
for its school and institution funds, a
constitutional amendment having been
adopted in 1881 (Section 2 of Article 8,
Constitution of Minnesota) reserving all
swamp lands, held or to accrue, to the
state thereafter, subject, of course, to the
claims of existing grantees.
“I shall be glad to adopt any sugges
tions you may make looking toward the
settlement of this swamp-land question
and to aid in the much-needed straight
ening out of the records thereof.
“In conclusion, I might suggest that, in
fairness to the state and to the general
government, that all lands in this state
designated as swamp lands by the field
notes of the government surveyors, and
the character of which you may still con
sider doubtful, be withdrawn from entry
under the homestead and stone and tim
ber acts, pending an examination to de
termine their true character. I make
this suggestion for the reason that, if
■oca MNi are wilMrawn, and remain
subject to eatrjr, toe situation is taken
atnntafP «t bjr persons, who, by throw
ing the lands Into contest, involve the
govenuaatt aad the state in litigation
and cause great aMtojrance and expense
to both. :A

Physical and Spitted Side of the Holj
Office of Motherhood Set
Forth.
Neglect cf the One at.the Btpwn of thi
Other—ltems That Will Interest
the Ladies.
There are two kinds of motherhood,
physical and spiritual. To fulfil the du
ties of the sacred office woman must blend
these characteristics. The young plant
springs from the seed in the soul; it can
not mature into usefulness and beauty
without the influence of dew and sun
shine. This will perhaps illustrate what
might be called the dual growth of the
plant. Child life is essentially the same.
It grows physically from the inherent im
petus given it by the plant. Stature and
strength are the results of accumulated
physical forces. As these forces differ in
quality so differ the physical attitudes of
the race. These differences very strong
ly demand the nations, giving them at
tributes, which readily distinguish each
from all others. This truth has crystal
lized itself into the proverb “To be well
born is everything.” But the physical
existence!is not the life; it is simply the
vehicle of the real life. It is no more the
life, than is the pot which holds the rose,
the rose itself. The physical basis is
much; it is the foundation of a super
structure, which is the intellect. Great
mentality nas existed in deformed bodies,
but that is no argument in favor of de
formity. On the other hand some of the
weakest and most puerile intellects have
been accompanied by excellent phy
siques. These cases are extremes, anom
olies. What we should aim at is “a sound
mind in a sound body.” As a rule chil
dren are happily born, well born. The
dwarfing process begins when mother
hood sees only one side of the sphere of
duty. Many intelligent women seem to
think that {heir duty is done to their chil
dren when they are fed, clothed and sent
to school. Every thoughtful teacher
knows that this is true. The imaginative
and spiritual side of many children is fal
low ground, left fallow often until filled
with weeds. And be it said to the credit
of our schools that they awaken the dor
mant nature which feeds the imagination
and leads childhood up through nature to
nature’s God. From many well ordered
homes there emerge children whose phy
sical needs are all provided for, but whose
better and holier self is all but dwarfed.
This then is physical motherhood. It
burnishes the pot, but gives no drop of
water to the famishing rose within it.
Burnish the pot hut above all water the
rose. The dual motherhood* does both,
childhood is so beautiful, it is so plastic,
It is so trustful. The whole duty of edu
cation or elsewhere is to develop the la
tent good in every child and strangle the
soil. It is not a problem of book learning.
Books are a means toward an end, that
and nothing more. Maternal discipline,
like a gentle rain, should fall from the
heaven of a mother’s love and wisdom,
upon the nature of childhood, yielding, not
weeds of rank disorder, but incense of the
flower and fruitage of goodness.
•JEANNETTE GILDER ON SINGLE
HAPPINESS.
The best way to be happy if you are
going to be single is to be born into a
large family and to be compelled at an
early age to earn your own living. I
always wanted to be single. I liked the
independence of that condition, and I
always wanted to earn my own living,
and my two desires have been gratified.
It has been my good fortune to have
had others besides myself to take care
of, and I think that that keeps one’s
mind off matrimony. I have preferred
that people should be dependent upon
me rather that that I should be de
pendent upon people, and I have had my
preference. I have never been a “lone
woman,” for I have always lived with
some of my family and I had for a time
a brood of motherless children to look
after. When their father took them,
I missed them sadly. He left one
with me, my niece, now a girl of four
teen years, whom I have had since she
was five. I won’t say that I would be
very happy though single without her.
My own child could not give me a
greater interest in life, and I suppose
that my feelings toward her are very
much those of a mother. Then I have
had brothers that I could always call
upon for the thousand and one things
that a woman needs a man to do for her.
Work and plenty of it goes far towards
making a single woman happy. When
I look about me I don’t see so many
married women w r hose lives are par
ticularly happy. I could count all the
happy marriages that I know of in a very
short time.
A marriage need not be downright un
happy to be uncomfortable. I look at a
great many wives whose husbands are
not unkind, but who do not get on with
them very well, and I don’t think that
they are happy.
Happiness depends a good deal upon
the disposition, and if an old maid has a
cheerful disposition she will be happier
than her married neighbor who hasn’t.
I cannot understand how the simple fact
of being unmarried can make a moman
unhappy. I should think that there
would have to be some better reason
than that.
To me personally it has always been
a matter of congratulation that I am an
old maid. It was the same w’hen I was
a young maid. I have enjoyed life as
much as most people and more than
many, and have never felt lonesome.
There has always been some one to bid
me good luck when I go out and to wel
come me when *1 come in. I might be
cross and sour if I had not had the
blessing of companionship.
If when I went out in the morning
there was no one to wave me adieu, and
if I came home to the welcome of a cat,
I don’t think that I should be very
happy even though single. I have al
ways had some one to be interested in
and to be interested in me, and these
are blessings without much matrimony
cannot be happiness.

CHAMBERS’ - ENCYCLOPEDIA.
We print upon another page of this
paper an advertisement qf Chambers’
Encyclopedia. When the matter was
first brought to our attention Jjt seemed
to us so impossible that thirty volumes
of an Encyclopedia, as famous as£2tam
bers’ great work, containing ove \dv«
thousand pages, could be sold IoFYLbo
that we ordered a set sent to us at
ings, expecting to find some sort
“fake” like the man who advertised M
“fine steel engraving of George Washing
ton” for SI.OO, and when the dollar came,
sent a postage stamp! We have three
encyclopedias in our library; one of them
cost us $l2O andi another something
more; and thirty volumes of Chambers’
work at $2.50 seemed so improbable as
to be absurd. But to our great astonish
ment along came the books, a great pile
of them. We opened the package and
found the thirty volumes, each the size
of an ordinary novel, bound in paper,
the type small but cle*. and the articles
covering the whole field of human
knowledge, and exhaustive in character.
Such a work at such a price is one of
the triumphs of modern civilization; and
we feel we are serving our friends by
introducing it into their houses. It
would not have been possible 100 years
ago to have published such a work for
less than $250.00 per set; instead of $2.50;
but many new inventions have been used
to achieve such a surprising result. No
royalty is paid; the copy is, we believe,
transferred to plates by some photo
graphic process; and this once made the
only cost then is the press-work, (made
by great steam presses, running day
night), and the paper. And yet it would
seem as if the mere paper in these 30
volumes would cost more than $2.50.
Send in your orders. The work is a
library in itself, and wherever you have
a family growing up they should have
the advantage of access to it. The man
who could read those thirty volumes
through and remember it all, would be
the most learned man in the United
States.
