character of Gov Johnson who is eing advocated for the Democratic nomination for Presi dent we give space to the following which has been sent out in plate form by the Minnesota Democratic Club who are pushing Gov JOb m iXc tilidacy John H Tolan a lawyer of Anacon da Mont a lifelong acquaintance and friend of Gov John A Johnson of Minnesota writes in regard to the latters candidacy You are taking the proper stepsa campaign of education is what is needed to secure his nom ination Once let the American people get close to this man learn his early history and struggles as know them feel his friendship as have felt it see his intense love and kindness for his fellow men as have seen it and no power on earth can deter them from placing him at the head of our federal government Mr Tolan has summed up briefly one side of the great governor of Min nesota He is a most lovable mana man who makes friends of all whom he meets In this respect as in some others he has been compared to the great Lincoln Gov Johnson is a man of the people Not even Lincoln came up from great er obscurity and greater poverty than the virile governor of Minnesota He understands the people as perhaps no Lil1coInAs a Democrat Gov Johnson ap peals to the thoughtful members of his party because he is preeminently qualified to unite and blend its discord ant elements into a competent enthu siastic wellorganized militant political Johnson appeals to the people regardless of party because he has a record of achievement behind him tha guarantees that if he is chosen to the great office of president be would fill it in a manner wholly satis factory to a vast majority of the plain people of America Poor Swedish Immigrants Gov Johnsons mother and father were poor immigrants from Sweden the former arriving in St Peter Mimi in 1852 and the father a year later They were married in 1858 The father was a blacltsmith in Sweden and took up his trade In his new home conduct ing at first a small blacksmith shop in the country near St Peter Later the family moved into the village and it was here July 21 1861 that the son John was born The father was cursed with the drink habit and in consequence after a few years of prosperity the family was reduced to desper ate straits So dire was their poverty that the mother had to take in wash ing for a living and the son John acted as her delivery boy When in his twelfth year the destitution of the little family consisting of the mother and father and three children had reached such a point that John begged his mother for permission to quit school in order to help her She reluctantly bpnsented fearing that her son would 1ever be able to return to school This fear was fully justified for aftertliat time the future governor of Minnesota knew the four walls of the schoolroom no more The boy went to work in a general store in the village at 10 a month and every cent of this generous trcasur4Hiswere still devoted to delivering lifiiM dry for the mother and the earnings of mother and son were sullicient to keep the little establishment going As time went on their condition improved with Johns increasing salary Two years after going to work ho way re ceiving 12 a month soon he was get ting more From this time on the mother was not compelled to work for the family maintenance The son provided the entire income and the mother returned to her proper work of housekeeping and caring for the family From the general store John went into a drug store where he stayed for about twelve years and became a licensed pharmacist Later he was employed by a railway contractor in Minnesota and Iowa and at thai time in his early 20s his income avr eraged aboqt 75 a mpnth all this time whether at hpme or away he regarded himself ap the head and main stay of the family and provided funds tn addition for educating the brother and sister who survived early child hood Not Embittered by Poverty Although John had thus to leave school so early in life lie did not cease to educate himself He became a great student and soon read every book in the village library It ia noteworthy that the first three books he 1rend after leaving school were Pres coWs two histories of tho conquest of Peru and Mexico and Scotts Ivan hoe While thus extending his knowl edge and intellectual horizon he at all times grew in the other fields of life Hard as his struggle had been he did not become embittered by it but took as large a part as possible in the vil lage social life He seldom missed a dance He attended church and be longed to the choir He joined the various fraternal lodges after the habit of men in small villages He v1llugeIwas interested in life not only his own life bit the life led by all his friends and neighbors The turning point in Gov Johnsons careerthe point from which he began to be a public mancamewith the portunity to become editor of the vil Thatlthe opportunity was t2mjK I man who had been without any news paper training or preparation was proof that early in life he began to equiPIment of the paper picked him out as the man they wanted for editor Ho im mediately arose to the opportunity He developed great aptitude for the new work and with it took on a larger scr vice in the community Sitting around the big stove in the drug store during the long winter evenings he had imbibed Democratic doctrines from the local politicians who had congregated there and as time went on h ebe came fixed in his belief in Democratic political tenets and a loyal adherent of the party johnson- had a natural gift for speaking and as he had now become a man of note in his little home community he had many opportunities to exercise this gift and soon came to be recognized as a fluent easy adaptable speaker al ways certain to say the right thing at the right time and always sure to say something worth hearing Between his speaking ability his ability as an editor dnd his remarkable mixing qualities he was scarcely 30 years old when he was recognized as the leading Democratic editor of Minnesota First Political Contest The governors first political contest came in 1894 when he was nominated for the state senate but although he made a gallant fight he was not able to overcome the Republican majority In 1S9S nominated to the state senate again he made a lively campaign on state issues and this time victory was with him He served through two ses sions of the legislature and his legislative career was chiefly notable for the leadership of his party in the suc cessful contest for a gross earnings tax on the Minnesota railways At the end of his legislative term the Demo cratic leaders of the state wanted to nominate him for governor but John son considered the situation hopeless and declined the honor Instead he took the nomination for state senate again But this time he was defeated by a small majority In 1904 he was persuaded however to accept the Democratic nomination and after be ing nominated by acclamation he plunged into a whirlwind campaign He made 103 speeches iu 74 out of the 84 counties of the state and these speeches were remarkable fbr4he fact that they were positive rather than negative He did not at ick his op ponent or indulge in personalities but spoke always of state affairs and need edVreforms JChisj n Shf presiden tip yearwhen Roosevelt enthusiasm was at Its height in every Republican state But when the votes were counted in November it was found that the people of the state at large had learned to love honor admire and respect John A Johnson as had the people of his native village Although President Roosevelt carried the state by the hitherto unknown plurality of 161000 Johnson wee elected by about SOOO After an administration of two years which made good every preelection promise Gov Johnson came once again before tho people of Minnesota with the slogan One good term de serves another making 119 speeches in 42 days This time without any presidential canvass to distract them from state issues and personalities the governor wasreelected by a plu rality of 77000 being the largest plu rality ever given to a gubernatorial candidate in Minnesota And it is by virtue of that handsome public verdict of approval that Gov Johnson today sits in his office in the magnificent marble capitol at St Paul perhaps the finest specimen of state architecture in America outside of Washing tonlooked up to with genuine love respect and confidence by the 2000000 people of MinnesotaA Record In the four years that ho has been governor John A Johnson has accomplished groat things in Minnesota He and his taxreforming appointees have increased the assessed valuation of the United states Steel corporation from 32000000 to 190000000 and in lieu of further increase of taxation the steel corporation is now building a 20000000 plant in Duluth Owing to his energy railway rates have been reduced partly voluntarily and partly by warehouse commission regulation and legislative enactment from 10 to 80 per cont The twocent railway passenger rate was secured in Minnesota Largely due to his initia tive the system of taxation was reformed and an expert commission of three able man appointed to deal with the taxation problem laws were parsed providing for the equitable taxation of sleeping car companies a modern law of mortgage taxation was alsp enacted reciprocal demurrage laws were adopted orders of the rail road and warehouse commission were made immediately effective In the in terests of labora free state employment bureau was created anti is con ducted with the best results A great system for the drainage of state swamp lands was innuguratod A law was passed providing for municipal ownership of public utilities The state of Minnesota has long conducted a twine factory with prison labor the object being to supply the farmers of the state with a binding twine for har

simmering for some time threatens to develop into a fullfledged boom Francis was under consid eration by party leaders several months ago but he did not give the idea of his candidacy much en couragementIn to a strong following in the Middle West he was assur ed of the Democrats who led in the support of Judge Parker four years ago Francis is said to have told those who approached him that he would gladly be a candidate if there should be a good prospect of his election but that he did not cherish any desire for the glory at tached to a figurehead candidacy- If he could be assured of a united party support and a proper campaign lund to which he would give liberally from his own means he would be willing to enter the race The matter was dropped for some time but attention to Fran cis has been revived within a few daysA number of his friends have come out of the West to test the drift of Democratic sentiment They say the strong points in favor ot Francis are his personal popular ity and his excellent record as Mayor of St Louis Governor of Missouri Secretary of the Interior in President Clevelands Cabinet and as President of the St Louis expositionHe never beaten say his

Send in your order early the sooner the longer your time for the dailies The farmers were never known to be so far behind with their work at this time of the vear There has been so much rain that it has been impossible to get any work done In some sections the situation has become alarming and the farmers are becoming very disponc ent over the situation Ve call the attention of our marshal to the shooting on the streets with 22 rifles at birds which if not stopped will most certainly result in something serious So long as it is doue only by the groin up people there is but lit tle danger but the boys will soon be the principal ones and then the danger comes not from any inten tional act but by carelessness The jury in the trial of Charley Cooper failed to agree The jury stood ten for convictien and two for acquital The report was circulated here Saturday afternoon that the jury stood ten for life sentence and two for hanging but it was entirely wrong and we do not understand how

over two years says Mr Rollan Curry a patrolman of Key West Fla Sometimes it settled in my knees and lamed me so I could hardly walk at other imes it would be in my feet and hands so I was incapacitated for duty One night when I was in severe pain and lame from it my wife went to the drug store here and came with a bottle of Chamberlains Pain Balm I was rubbed with it and found the pain ha d nearly gone during the night I kept on using it for a little more than two weeks and found that it drove the rheumatism away I have not had any trouble from that disease for over three months For

from first page to sell the product of the x plant outside as well as within ll state At Gov Johnsons sugestic railway passes were abolished in Min governors part In the insurance reforms of recent years is too wel known to require attention here b2 yond allusion to the fact that Preat dent Roosevelt publicly recognized him as the leader in the nationwide campaign for reformation of the great Insurance companies Gov Johnson is a man of strict adherence to political principle but he does not believe in confusing every passing fancy or fad with political principle He believes that there aro a few basic political ideas which char acterize Democracy He is not a man who was a Republican yesterday a Democrat today and an Independent tomorrow Throughout his career he has been a Democrat Although there can be no question that Gov Johnson is a believer in sweeping tariff reforms and a believer in the necessity for vigorous legisla tion to meet certain modern industrial conditions he has such an abundance of common sense so much intellectual balance and is so tactful in his meiii ods that he achieves his ends without that excessive friction and violent dis turbance that has been characteristic of some of our recent reformers Gov Johnson is a big man He is not wed led to a particular political fad He is in statesmanship something of an op ortunitist Although guided by some big principles he prefers to decide questions as they come up on their ndividual presentation- As a Democratic candidate he Is strong because between his genuine levotion to reform and his careful and effective methods of getting reforms- Ie should have no difficulty in uniting n his support both the conservative md radical elements in his party This should insure him the normal Demo ratic strength carrying with it of ourse the solid south and such states is New York and New Jersey In ad jition Gov Johnson will draw an im nense Republican vote from Scandi navianAmerican citizens as well as ther classes in such states as Illi lois Wisconsin Minnesota North and South Dakota Montana Nebraska and Washington There is no question that he could carry Minnesota and the two Dakotas Wisconsin and Illinois MORE POWER TO JOHNSON He Is a Man Who Merits Has Risen on His Hon John A Johnson has risen from the ranks on his merits He has won a fair degree of material prosper ity not by the reckless arts of a demagogue but by the constructive work ot- a citizen who grows up In and with his country He has political power because he has deserved public confidence How ever any of us may disagree with some of his political ideas he is recognized by all who have taken the trouble to learn anything about him as a man of sound and sincere character He is a selfmade man who is well aiade who has done a good job in the making of himself As to his general attitude toward the questions of the day it is enough to say tha he is not a man who believes in burning the barn to kill the rats He is exactly the kind of man that what Mr Bryan calls the plain peo pie are glad to see come forward for high office They recognize him as one of themselves and are proud of him with good reason John A Johnson of Minnesota is doing what he can More power to him and to all iike him The republic needs the help of all of theznChi ago Inter Ocean VAST RESPONSIBILITIES A Short Extract from a Notable Speech by Gov Johnson We are confronted by vast opportunities and responsibilities and with lost ground to recover A bad economic policy and political treachery cost us the benefit of commercial free dom with Canada Had we been fair and decent with our sister country across the boundary the trade of Can ada would have been ours and commercially If not politically the two countries would have been one We are told it is now too late Canada has grown away from us instead of toward us A false policy has robbed us of our own Congressmen elect ed to represent cur interests in reciprocity with Canada have gone to Washington in the interests of a pine land combine and worked to make reciprocity impossible The American flag ought now to float over all North America but that union either politically or commercially can never take place until a larger patriotism can rise above political cant and private greed From a Speech by Gov John A Johnson The Mirage of Watered Stock False capitalization is one of the great causes that has brought a shock tdthe faith of the people Watered stock is the mirage in the desert of our commercial life The billiondol lar steeltrust quoted at 75c on a dollar today and at eight cents tomorrow typifies the class Watered stock has become a common phase of legal ized larceny If the mad race is to stop before the runner falls corporate business must be reorganized on a rational basis NT corporation should be permitted by law to issue a share of stock that does not stand for paid in cash and certified to by state ex amination Every dollar invested In a commercial enterprise should earn a fair profit and every investor is entitled to a fair rate of interest on his investment But it is not entitled to si rate of interest and profit on stock which
