MINN Editor McDonald, of the St. Cloud Times, who has for years waged a personal warfare against W. B. Mitchell through the col umns of his paper, was expected to take no other course than to claim that a recent item in the Transcript about the papers that were demanding Mr. Mitchell's re­ moval from the formal schoo: board was carrying political con­ siderations into the management of educational institutions. Mc­ Donald has no ideas of fairness in in his attacks on Mitchell, and does not hesitate to mistake the meaning of any article about the latter gentleman's conn ction with the school. When a number ot Democratic papers now jointly de­ mand Mr. Mitchell's removal on account of a charge made against him several years ago, it gives grounds for belief that the attack is not solely for the benef...

TTXER, Tex., Oct. 80.—The negro, Henry Hillard, who so brutally mur­ dered Mrs. Eell near here, was captured about 4 a. m. three miles from Kilgore. He offered no resistance. Soon after the officers h«"* him handcuffed a mob of some 200 men, heavily armed, arrived "on the scene and demanaed the imme 'diate surrender of the prisoner, which was readily given.

There was not as much land Hold on Friday by the state auditor as was expected—for three reasons. First, the lands to be "re-sold" were mostly redeemed by the former buy­ ers," and every owner but one made some pnyments, and the auditor de­ cided to give all real-settlers another chance to save their land second, the local state land appraisers had be«»n very slow with their work, and no returns were completed from many towns third, the very low, prices of produce made it difficult for some to raise the money to make flint pay nienton the land they wanted.

The Cars Turned Completely Over and Demolished. Casualties. WHEELING, W. Va., Nov. 4.—The "worst railroad wreck in the immediate "vicinity of Wheeling for many years •occurred shortly before 10 o'clock at Elm Grove, five miles east, on the Pitts­ burg division of the Baltimore and Ohio road. The Pittsburg-Cincinnati ex­ press, commonly known as the Cannon Ball, jumped the track on a bridge over Wheeling creek, oying to a broken flange on a wheel of the smoking car. The engine, tender and baggage car kept the track, while the mail car, smoker and Pullman car went over a bank about 10 feet high. The day -coach turned completely over and the other two lay on their sides. The cars were completely demolished, seeming to have been thrown some distance through the air.

The St. QloudTimes could hardly brace up to comment on Tuesday's elections. The Democratic bond issues have reached only $162,000,000, but there is a year and a half more of ''cWer" yet before-the people. This Democratic style of runlring a nation or a county "iri the.hole" is not popular with the voters. It will be interesting to see the free silverites struggle out of the wreck and point out the places where their theories got any popu­ lar encouragement Tuesday. The people will not be fooled into call­ ing the silver kings'product worth twice what it really is. The American people are honest. Northern Democrats should feel delighted that they sti...
