REPUBLICAN STATE CONVENTION.
The republican electors of the

for the purpose of placing in nomi
nation candidates for one associate
justice of the supreme court, and
two members of the board of re
gents of the state university, and to
transact such other business as
maybe presented to the convention
The several counties are entitled
to representation as follows, being

Nobody seems to be happy. We

take comfort from the fact that our

him by letter from leading republi

A CABLEGRAM from London
makes much of the statement that
business property was recently
sold in the English metropolis "at
the rate of $2,500,000 per acre." Chic
ago is only half a century old, but
the English boast is dwarfed by re
cent transactions in realty. The
corner lot upon which the Inter
Ocean Building stands cost $7,500
per tront toot, loia would .mean
at a rate of $8,157,500 per acre. This
sale created so much of a stir that
Fred Leslie, the English comedian,
nightly sighed for "a scarf pin
mounted with a lump of that corner-
lot dirt." The northeast corner of
Clark and Waskington, where the
Reaper Blocs stands, was recently
sold for $100 per square foot, and
the northwest corner of State and
Madison for $92. Botli these sales
would mean over $1,C30,C30 per acre.
No wonder St. Paul teels ag
grieved. When she undertook to
make her census Minneapolis
poked in her nose and spoiled all
the fun. When she spent some
$20,000 for a little "scrap" then the
sheriff and the governor jumped in
and threatened to arrest the town.
St. Paul has about reached the con
clusion that "this is no free coun
ONE of the Southern orators the
other day remarked, in speaking of
Jefferson Davis, that "Virginia will
guard and honor the remains of
one who has sacrificed so much,
not only for the Confederacy, but
for the whole country as well." The
general impression is, and has been
. lor some time, that Jefferssn Davis
was the luckiest criminal ever pro--arwiuced
upon American soil.

that city has been made the head
quarters of a national movement on
tne part ot tne alliance to corner
the wheat crop and thereby obtain
fancy prices. The plan is to unite
the farmers in a gigantic wheat
trust in which the farmers or pro
ducers will be the stockholders and
by which speculators and wheat
buyers are to be squeezed to the
wall, George D. Miller is said to be
at the head of the organization. We
should smile to see a deal of that
kind that would beat the specula
tors. The chances are, the specula
tors would get onto the markets
and would soon make as much out
of it as the farmers. But if the
farmer thinks the trust is such a
wonderful institution to make
money we know of no better way
of convincing him in regard to the
facts than for him to try it awhile.
we siiouiu like to see better prices
realized for what is produced in the

scheme is advisable.
