PROTECT THE HOME MERCHANT. The "Cheap John" With His Shoddy Stock Should be Compelled to "Move On", or Pay a Heavy License. The arrest of a traveling representative of a clothing house of Minneapolis, for sell­ ing goods without a license in violation of the city ordinance is a step in the right direction, and if followed to the hitter end will result in great good to the merchants of Duluth. Scarcely a month passes but some traveling salesman sets up business here and disposes of trashy, worthless, shelf worn, shoddy goods of some kind. They sell these goods at a much lower price than the home merchant can possibly afford to sell good goods. A short time ago a tramping firm sold mackintoshs and rubber goods for a week on Superior street at a price much lower than any factory could afford to make honest goods. They received a large patron­ age from the gullible public. The next week they were gone, even before the worthless qual­ ity of their wares could be dis­ covered. Our own mer...

AN ECCENTRIC DIPLOMAT. the Quaint Personality and Strange Life of Minister Fox. The former representative of the government of Great Britain to this country, Henry Stephen Fox, of whom the good story is told that when he met acquaintances in day­ light he remarked how strange was their appearance, or they had never seen each other except by candle­ light, is well remembered by a few of our older citizens as a most ec­ centric character. He was a figure as well known as most of the nota­ bles of his day. He had long been in the diplomatic service of Great Britain, and when sent here from South America to succeed Sir Charles Vaughan, one of the most affable as well as brilliant members of the diplomatio corps, Mr. Fox was ex­ pected to fill his place in society cir­ cles. Indeed, so much had been said of his witticisms and eccentricities that Washington was looking for a social lion. If any knew of his dis­ like of some of the society functions, our upper ten was not informed, and the...

LOCAL NOTES. J. O. McLaughlin, the victor in the News Tribune Klondyke contest, returned to duty the fore part of the week, having been out in the woods on a hunting trip. Numerous favorable com­ ments have been heard the past week on Rev. C. H. Pat ton's sermon Sunday night on "Labor Unions, Strikes and Boycotts." The barbers' union have de­ clared a boycott on Woodling's barber shop in the Chamber of Commerce building. The gen­ tleman is trying to run a 10 cent joint within the 15-cent limits. The union mills at the head of the lakes—the Listman and Aachor—have made arrange­ ments to sell their flour, the Sensation and Prima Dona, direct to the retailers on this side of the bay.

It was reported at the last meeting of theTrades Assembly that there were strong proba­ bilities of unionizing the Supe­ rior Leader.

WHAT COMMISSION Continued from drat p.-igr. Alderruan Hale introduced a motion to give tlio ladies' Hid society the free use of tliH armory for tli« distribution of suiiplies to the needy. Burp, in effect, paid 'Met them hire ball." Sang retorted that, t.ho Indies iwd as much right lo u«e th« armory for a charitable purpose like this,' as the tuiii'ia boys to use it as a baseball pari*. Only Burg voted no. The bankers are very much opposed to the state of the law which allows co-operative col­ onies to issue labor checks, these checks being employed as currency by the colonists. The bankers do not allege that this practice has prevented them from gaining the usual profits of their business, but they do say that these bits of paper are an element of peril The idea may be taken up by a corporation of some kind and then the country "would be flooded" with substitutes for bank currency. The contem plation of such a thing as the circulation of substitutes for bank currency plunges «the p...

SRISH IVY. Ivy of Ireland in my garden grows Beside the foxglove that the wild bee knowa, More dear to ine than lavender or rose. Gray moths about me flit, and gold wasps hum. The bees salute it softly us they come. The east wind loiters by it and is dumb Or whispers very lightly of green rings, The hollow raths, the fairy people springs And buried days when Boholaun had wings And rode amid the unforgotten Shee. Or the west wind comes laughing from the sea And tells the youngest leaves of days to be, When Erin's grievous wound is healed and she Shall lift her gracious head and, smiling, see Her children coming crowned about her knee. Ivy of Ireland, is the promise clear? You climb toward the light 'twixt hope and fear, But wtjuld to God the day we wait were here! —From "Under Quicken Boughs," by Nora Hopper. WITCH AND I.
