Mayor Truelsen has received from Shailer & Schinglan Co., of Chicago, a proposition to dupli cate the Dtiluth water plant at the estimates made some years ago by C. E. Keating, C. E., or even for less money. Keating's figures were $1,091,107. The company claims to be familiar with the conditions that affect such work in this city, and to have carefully compared the es timates of Keating and Davis. When the people control leg islation through the initiative and referendum and their officials through the imperative mandate, the laws will be fewer, far simpler and more just. Officials will then be easily cured of the "big head," and will not consider themselves so far above the people. The first number of the St. Paul Union Advocate, publish ed at St. Paul, Minnesota, has reached our exchange table. It is full of bright up-to-date mat ter interesting to members of trades unions. Its editor P. J. Geraghty is well known in labor circles throughout the state who will wish him wel...

if! 1 If further evidence were needed that the people's party is under the special protection of prov idence it is found in the action taken at its late lamented mass convention. Despite Mr. Austin's protestations to the contrary, the committee has not endorsed any aldermanic candidate, and Messrs. Culver, Hibbard, Blix and one other, which makes a majority of the committee, are known to be opposed to any further endorsements. This ac tion, taken with the unanimous endorsement given Messrs. Voss and Lovett, makes the net re sult not only in harmony with the wishes ol the mass of Duluth populists, but is the very best course that, failing of a conven tion, the party could follow. Our protest is against the irregular methods indulged in by men with axes to grind. Of such proceedings we hope the p^rty in Duluth will see no more. The press dispatches tell us that the efforts of E. V. Debs to bring about a settlement of the Leadville miners' trouble have been fruitless. This is to be...

Burning their Fingers. How the gold trust has played the bankers for suckers! The Rothschilds and their "pals" have upwards of $5,000 000,000 of gold locked away in their vaults. The nine thousand banks in the United States have only $140,000,000. For every dollar of the securities locked away by the Rothschild syndi cate there is somewhere from two to four times as much of prop erty that has practically perma nent value. Depreciation of their pledges below the value of their securities is inherently impossible so long as the foundation of so ciety are not completely broken up. But what have the banks got? Personal security, chattel mortgages, second-rate stocks and bonds—pledges, in short, of all kinds that in the nature of things are the first to diminish in value. Forty-two billion of debts are all dependent upon $140,000,000 for payment. With the cream of the security all in the hands of the Roths childs is it any wonder that the banks can't "play even?" They assisted to br...

IN THE SIXTH WARD. George E. Duren, Independent Candidate For Alderman. The subject of this sketch is a native born American, hav ing first seen the light of day in the state of Maine. He was born in the year 1853, and is therefore' about 44 years of age. He came to Duluth in 1882, and ever since has divided his at tention between the saw mill and lumbering business, and contracting. In his younger days Mr. Duren's parents undertook to persuade him to fit himself for a legal profession, but without any success as he resisted the blandishments held outof such a career, and explained his re fusal by declaring that he cou\d not succeed as a lawyer and tell the truth—a conclu sion that will be agreed to by very many in these and which is suggestively indi cative, not only of Mr. Duren's natural inclination towards the strictest probity, but also of the fact that even at an early age he Was equipped by nature with a keen insight into human character. The Sixth ward will be en titled...

E. J. AMORY Independent Candidate For Alder man in the Second Ward. Mr. Amory was born at Fort Smith, state of Arkansas, December 9, 1856. His father was Thomas Isaac Coffen Amory, of Boston, Mass., brevet brigadier general in the war of the rebellion, and died near Newburg, North Carolina, dur ing the summer of 1894, of yel low fever. His grandfather was Jonathan Amory of Bos ton, who in turn was the grand son of James Sullivan, who served the state of Massachu setts both in the capacity of governor and judge of the su perior court. Another distin guished relative of Mr. Amory's grandfather—the great uncle of the latter—was Major General John Sullivan, who served in the war of the revo lution under George Washing ton. The subject of this sketch left Boston at the age of eigh teen to face the world on his own account and make his first attempt at earning an honest dollar. For three years he was employed in the general offices of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railro...

Duluth'8 opportunities. Mr. Coch. rane owns considerable property in the ward and thus the people have an additional guarantee that he will work for the common prosper ity arid upbuilding* of the city. HERMAN BURG Independent Candidate for Alder man in the Fourth Ward. The gentleman named above, who is being vigorously advocated for the position of representative in the city council from the Fourth ward, is one of Duluth's pioneers from away back. He came to this city from Detroit, Michigan, in the year 1856, more than forty years ago. During the winters succeeding Mr. Burg's advent on these then wild shores of the northern inland ocean he followed the laborious occupation of logging. For the next subsequent sixteen years he conducted a meat market business, and after that went back to his first love—the lumber business. Mr. Burg is one of Duluth's repre sentative business men. He has faeen the scattering log cabins develop into a hamlet, the hamlet into a village, and the villag...

As a candidate for the position of alderman of the Seventh Ward, I desire to make the following statement: There was circulated for me in the Seventh Ward, a petition calling upon me to become an independent candidate for alderman in the Seventh Ward. There were signed to this petition 234 names of voters. After about 225 had been signed to my petition, I, in company with Mr. M. M. Clark, saw L. A. Gunderson who was then preparing to circulate a petition as the league candidate for alderman and it was distinctly agreed be tween Mr. Gunderson and myself, that he would not obtain any signatures of parties to his petition that had signed mine for the reason that if any parties signed both petitions, they would have to be stricken off of both by the city clerk. Mr. Gunderson stated at the time that he knew what the...

The Independent Candidate. Up and down the streets the office-seeker wanders, Every hour of every day, Getting names until he's thinking Things will surely come his way. He is confident of winning, As he sees his list increase, And then proudly tells his neighbors That he's got it slick as grease. But when everything looks rosy Then there comes a trouble sore, For he runs against more suckers Till he finds at least a score. Every one of them is hopeful. All indulge in sweeping claims, Show their lists, and then discover Each contains the same good names. Locomotive Firemen. Agate Lodge No. 519 Brother hood of Locomotive Fireman gave its first annual dance the evening of Jan. 23, in the ar mory. This is the first social entertaimerit given by the loco motive firemen and their first attempt was a splendid success. The attendance was about 350.

A Boy's Mother. My mother she's so good to me Ef I was as good as I could be 1 couldn't be as good. No sir, Can't anybody be as good as her. She loves me when I'm glad or mad She loves me when I'm good or bad An' what's a funniest thing, she says She loves me when she punishes. I don't like her to punish me That don't hurt, but it hurts to see Her cryin', nen I cry, an' nen We both cry—and be good again. She loves me when she cuts and sews My little cloak and Sunday clothes An' when my papa comes home to tea She loves him most as much as me.
