On March 28 will be launched at Cramps' shipyard in Philadelphia the first class battleship Iowa, Uie fourth of her kind to be added to our navy. About 60 years ago there slid from the ways near where the Iowa now rests a gallant ship that for a time was queen of the waves. This was the old ship of the line Pennsylvania. She was the finest example of a wooden warship ever built by this government, and at the time of her launching it wad expected that she would continue to be an imposing mem­ ber of our fleet for at least half a cen­ tury.

The Mille Lacs Indians can take allotments of land In severality at White Earth, and It has always been a query in my mind whether It would not be better for them to move to White Earth and thus se­ cure good lands as I have been in­ formed that the lands are better ther...

The mass ot Republi­ can voters would be greatly disappointed if he did not hetwl the ticket this year. The plan of the Clough cam­ paign has recently been to claim everything. There is scarcely a county in the state that some of dough's appointees or would-be appointees ..do not claim for him. Todd county, they surmise, will be for Lee, and Wiuona may give: Van Sant a little help.
