IS REAL HIT IN UlUESOTA Staunchly Republican Populace Bares Heart ,. to Party's Nominee. BY .DAVID LAWRENCE (Special to The Argus.) St. Paul, Minn.. Sept. 10. Sena tor Harding made a hit in Minne sota. Democrats who saw his re ception in the twin-cities will hard ly begrudge that statement; and Republicans' will privately admit that the senator did ever so much better than they expected. He was to them' a pleasant surprise a dig' nified figure with plenty of human qualities to catch the imagination of a crowd .ready from the outset to like him. 1 Comparison of the reception giv en Governor Cox two days ago and that given Senator Harding is not difficult tor conditions were almost exactly the same. Both candidates talked at the same state fair. The Democratic nominee faced a. hos tile crowd, the Republican nominee stood before a reverent, almost af fectionate audience. They liked Harding's pictures before they saw the man; they were ready believ ers in his philosophy ot anti-Wil- sonism; they were born and bred neyuuiiuuio uiu ivik Mtuajieu mai Warren Harding came from good Republican stock and would do. Strongly Republican. Governor Cox, on the other hand, won friends and made some votes. He left a good Impression, but as one Republican expressed' it, even George Washington couldn't carry Minnesota on the Democratic ticket this year. The Democratic nomi nee won more applause when he drove a horse around the race track than by his speech at the state fair but he did get a rousing reception when he spoke at the Auditorium at night Senator Harding's . first experi ence away from the - front porch was, on the whole, a big success. The national Republican commit tee selected a good place for the experiment The twin-cities are more than eager lor normalcy and most neonle here who cheered Harding imagine he will bring some sort of change in economic conditions that will relieve them of present day worries.' '-,.- Talking Polities Barred. Both Governor Cox and Senator Harding were asked not to talk politics at the state fair. The Dem ocratic nominee spoke of his can didacy therefore only by implica tion. The Republican nominee was in the hands of friends on the state fair board and took all sorts of lib erties, even to the cataloguing of Republican pledges. And the crowd relished it. They understood his discourse on agriculture; liked the ; tone of his voice and the cut of his jib, and gave him the kind of a greeting that was unmistakable both in warmth and sincerity. , Over in Minneapolis, the sena tor captured the town even more decisively. Streets that turnedaout bandfuls to see Woodrow Wilson a year ago were packed from store window to curb. . Some ot the na tives say Theodore Roosevelt alone got such a reception in Minneapo lis. Certainly -the writer can tes tify that Minneapolis,, while gen erous in its applause - at Wilson meetings, never stopped work' in mid-day to the extent that thous ands of people did this time ' for Senator Harding. t Given Warm Greeting. - Similarly in St. Paul in the eve ning, the Republican nominee stood in the state capitol and shook hands with thousands of people. For two hours the eager Republi cans waited for a chance to greet Mr. Harding. It reminded one of White house receptions ot ancient days when long lines of guests waited patiently to snake tne hand of the chief executive. What does it all mean?' The writer asked a Republican friend whose judgment isn't as partisan as his political affiliation might in dicate. He said it was the desire of the people to greet a new presi- i dential figure. Indeed, it suggested in its psycnoiogy me long-iive-tne-king enthusiasm which comes out ot the body politic when there is a change in rulers in other lands. Eight lean a Loaf Time. Eight years is a long time for a man to be president ot the United States, and Minnesota's greeting to Harding was that of a Republican stronghold eager to see the cita dels of government .commanded again by Republican' soldiery.

' Hamline, Minn Sept 10. The country at large, will not care 30 cents to find out the exact figures or even the approximate figures of any campaign fund, said Aaron S. Watkins, Prohibition candidate for president in a speech at the Minne sota state fair today. "It is said by some that all the national elections since the Civil war have followed the line of larg est contributions," Mr. Watkins continued. "The fact that the side with the largest campaign fund has usually won may be a case of cause ther The another. Tne and effect one way or man who calls attention too large- ly to his opponent's campaign funds may be betraying the fact that the swing is against himself. "The real questions of this year are the League ot Nations, the la bor problem and the extinction of the liquor traffic." Mr. Watkins devoted the major portion of his speech to a discus sion of rural problems, the most important of which, he ' said, was the steady decrease of rural popu-' lation. , He concluded: "As long as boys and girls on the farm are taught that the great op portunities, intellectual, social and financial, are in the cities, we shall cry out in vain against the exodus from the farm. Whenever we be gin to plan the farm as a perman ent place to live and the best place to enjoy Ufej then the Urm wiu be in condition at least to state its problems to the country and to as rsist in their solution."

To Our Subscribers: With the sole object of rendering the best possible service t the subscriber, The Argus has decided to inaugurate a new policy in its circulation department in regard to the delivery of papers. ...... . : .... The success of the new policy will depend almost entirely upon the individual carrier boy, and the subscriber. The plan, briefly, is Oils: ...;.-.'. . . . - 'The Argus will, in augurating the plan, turn the paper routes over to some of the carrier boys for their management They will not only deliver the paper to the -- subscribers, but in fact sell, them and collect for them, deducting the difference between what they paid for them , and sold them for to th subscriber, as their "profit." Their earnings accordingly will depend not only upon holding their subscribers, hot in keeping collections right up to data. : . " -"-'.' :v.': ':."- The proposition simply tarnishes a greater incen tive for the carrier boys to render the best of service, by delivering their papers to subscribers- regularly and promptly. The subscriber in turn will show his appre ' ciation of the improved service by prompt payment of his subscription to the boy. " "Poor collections" and "bad accounts" will soon mean decreased earnings for the carrier boy, for his route will be his "own private bus iness." The success of it will depend on his business ability and the character of bis customers. Leading papers elsewhere over the country have hit upon -this plan as a solution of the circulation problem of "service to the subscriber," and it has worked out satisfactorily. Starting with several carrier boys. The Argus expects to be able to extend , the plan in time to all routes in the city. " As stated before, its' success will depend upon the service rendered by the carrier boy to his "customer" the subscriber and upon the subscriber's appreciation of improved service by prompt payment of subscription, which will keep the earnings of the carrier boy on a profitable basis.
