About 7 o'clock Monday evening the noble grand of tlie Little Falls OddFello vvs lodge received a telegram from the noble grand of the lodge at Menasha, Wis., to the effect that Charles Cragin, a member of the order, had been drowned at that place and that the body had been re­ covered. Steps were immediately taken by the lodge relative to the disposition of the body and it will probably be sent to his former home at Lawrence, Mass. Charles Cragin came here about two years ago and was employed at the Hennepin Paper mill until about the first of April when he left, intend­ ing to go to California, but finally secured a position in the Howard mill at Men ash a.

4 -mi The Monthly Fairs ^ill JWake a Better Market for County Stock,' Cause And Cause Farmers to Pay More Attention to Improv­ ing ttie Grades. The Advent of Kansas City Beef Makes An Improvement in Local Stock a Necessity. At the present time a considerable amount of Kansas City heef is re­ tailed by the local meat markets in Little Falls, possibly one-third of the sales being of imported beef. The butchers say they get this foreign meat at a price that makes it profit­ able for them to handle it to some extent in place, of local stock, even though the latter sells for about 2% cents on foot. The expense of trav­ eling through the country to buy stock is done away with, as is also the expense of caring for and killing and dressing. The county stock that is now bought is contracted forfrom farmers who visit the city, and is de­ livered when wanted. The amount of money paid by the meat market men of the city to Armour & Co., who supply the Kansas Cit.y beef, is probably upwards o...

2 ENGLAND AND SILVER THE WHITE METAL IS USED TO FOS­ TER BRITISH INTERESTS. the Demonetization of Silver Is Discrimina­ tion Against an American Product—Our Only Belief Is to Tax British Freight and Shipping. We, with our near neighbor, Mexico, ire the principal producers of silver. Nearly all the world's supply comes from North and South America. The production of all Europe is insignificant. Until lately neither Great Britain nor any British colony produced any silver. Under these circumstances England saw that by demonetizing silver it would decrease the value of a commodity it did not produce and conversely increase the value of the goods it wished to sell in American countries. Some 14 years ago Germany, which proposed by the aid of protection and subsidies to its mercan­ tile marine to become an exporting na­ tion, followed England's lead and also demonetized silver. Lately England, seeing that we were staggering under the effort to hold up the price of a product common to so ...

4 HOPE TO DEFEAT IT Republican Senators Not Certain That the Tariff Bill Will Go Through. A CAUCUS OF MEMBERS HELD. Radical Opponents Think the Measure Could Be Debated at Length. WASHINGTON, May 15.—The Republi­ can members of the senate were in cau­ cus at Senator Sherman's house from 8 o'clock until 11:50. The caucus partook more of the nature of an informal con­ ference than a business meeting, and while it was called with the purpose of arriving at a conclusion as to the method to be pursued by the Republi­ can party in the senate, it closed with­ out eliciting anything in the way of a party declaration. There was no vote on any proposition whatever, and the proceedings consisted of a large number of speeches. There were about 25 of the 87 Republican senators present, and every one there Had omething to Say in the course of the evening. Thero was a great divergence in views. Of course the accounts of the evening agree that while there were probably 25 speeches, all brief, no tw...

10 Jchan LITTLE DROPS OF WffiTER Will Hereafter "JLay the Dust' On our Business Streets.. The street sprinkling matter has finally been settled. .Last night a petition was presented to the coun­ cil, having the signatures of the owners of more than two-thirds of the frontage and of the valuation of the property along the streets for which sprinkling was asked. There was a large margin above the two thirds on Broadway, but on First street there was more opposition to paying the tax. The part of First street to be sprinkled extends from the center of the block in which the P.uckman hotel is situated north to 1st avenue north—two blocks and a half. The valuation is about $51, 000, and signers representing over $37,000 of property were on tne peti­ tion. The tax to property will be about the same as last year. One block that was included last year is now left out, and its valuation was $14,000. but nearly $10,000 in valuation of new buildings is added, so the vote will remain at about $...

One of the most beautiful spots in the environs of our rapidly grow­ ing city is now being laid out in five acre outlots. The land in question is owned by Mr. Olof O. Searle, of A. E Johnson & Co., of St. Paul, a firm to which Little Falls and Morrison county already is deeply indebted on account of the many hundred thrifty farmers who, through its efforts, have been brought into our county. Accompanied by the wide awake local representative of said firm, Mr. H. Landahl, we today went out to these new outlots.

Russell Brown, who has been elected governor of Rhode Island for a third term, is a native of the Wooden Nutmeg State, but has been in business in Providence for upward of 24 years. He is the senior partner and founder of the house of Brown Bros. & Co., the largest dealers in mill supplies in tho United States, and being distinctively a man of the people may be considered a fair illustration of the sort of success that may be achieved in the business world by intelligent persistence on the part even of those who begin at the bot­ tom of the ladder. Governor Brown was born in Bolton, Conn., March 28, 1848. He was a farm­ er's boy and was educated in the district schools and in academies at Manchester and Hartford. After quitting school he secured employment in a hardware shop at Rockville and at the end of a couple of years was made head clerk and sales- GOVERNOll BROWN. man for a big Hartford ...

The debate was marked by quite a number of interest­ ing clashes between the 'Republicans and Democrats.
