The Pioneer Press is authorized to announce a red hot political fight in Morrison county. The band is engaged rather early. After the owners of the North­ ern Pacific decided that Hill couldn't purchase it, the supreme court comes to a similar conclu sion-T-but uses different, reasoning. The experienced paragrapher of the Minneapolis Journal is a close observe* and wise reasoner. He says: "The Kaines law in New York has made the free lunch unlawful. This looks like a direct blow at the cockroach." The war department reports to congress 'that a canal can be built from Lake Superior to th« Mis­ sissippi river for $7,050,000.

March impresses itself upoa the dwell­ er in the northern half of the United States as a particularly windy and dis­ agreeable month, with strong alterna­ tions of wintry and mild weather. This is dne to the breaking up of the condi­ tions that have prevailed since Decem­ ber and the processes of return to spring and summer.. There is in the arctic zone an enormous amount of cold material to be disposed of. covering the northern regions in the form of ice and snow. At the same time the southern zone is be­ coming decidedly warmer in conse­ quence of the advance of the sun to the northern side of the equator. The United States is peculiarly the theater of this contest between the giants of cold and heat, and they stag­ ger baok and forth over this territory as one or the other is for the time b...

Observation stations are not numerous between the Red River valley and Lake Superior, and a storm can move dowu from that region without the knowledge of the government service. The rail roads leading from Carle* too and Duluth to Minueapolis made special rates for woodmen this spring, and it is estimated that about 3,000 men were taken from the northern villages and cities t» the big Twin to spend their winter wages. The towns that were deprived of this trade are making a howl against the rail­ roads for favoring Minneapolis.

Shaw was chosen chairman, and atter the meeting was called to order its object and plans for the same were pretty thoroughly discussed. The question of organizing a team this city to join the proposed Northwestern league, which includes the cities of Duluth, St. Cloud, Little Falls, Brainerd, Fargo, Grand Forks and Bismarck was brought up, and the sentiment was strongly against joining that organization should it be formed. It was clearly shown that if Little Falls joined a move of that kind it would, in order to carry out any. schedule of games, necessi­ tate an entire salaried team, and,i like several of the cities named, we would find It im...
