PROPOSED COMMONWEALTH ON THE B0RDER8 OF THE GREAT LAKE, Cltl7.eiis of the Itlrli Mining mill Timber Keglons Wtint iriilforiiilly iif r,iiws iind Interests nnd Clnlin Ibid Trent inenl~ycii-tliiieiit Not Unntiliiion,!. It is about livo years now since tho first talk was he;trd about carving anew stato to bo called Superior out ot the northern portions of Michigan, Wiseon-sin and Minuesota. Lately the talk has been more ilcfhiito and doteriuincd than ever botore, and this has been in great mea.suro duo to recent action by the Ipj,--islatiues ot Wisconsin and Minnesota regarding tho municipal luiion ot tho cities of Dnlnth, Minn., aud Superior, Wis., aud other legislation concerning the location of normal schools in both states. So intenao has tho feeling bo-como that Senator Spencer of Dnlutli aroso iu his place in tho Minnesota log-ialaturo tho other day and declared that St. Louis county, ot which Dnluth is tho county seat, was prepared to secede from tho stato unless it wero treated more fairly in tho future. Tho map here given shows tlin pro-po.sod boundaries ot tho new conunon-wealth, according to tho ideas ot ono set of its advocates. Tlieso Uneii do not exactly meet the views of all, however; but, according to llio plans of everyone, Superior would occupy a territoryrather more than �10,(100 sqnaro miles in ox- �rilH PliOPOSKU NIJW HTXTE. t(!iit, and its total population upon the basis of tho last census would be about 3in,000. Tho reasons advanced for the creation ot the iiiw stato may 1k) briefly stated as follows: The iinrtherii iieiiliiKuhi ot Mieliig.aii, tho northern portion of Wisconsin aud the iiortlieastem ixirtion of Minnesota, embracing all tho shore liiiout Lake Superior in the United St.atcs, is especially rich in timbor and minerals. For this reason tho interests of tho inhabitants are practically identical and not wholly in accord with tho interests of iho tlireo Btatos to which this mineral timber ro-gion now owes allogiaiico. Besides the development of the ten-itory under consideration, though It began later, lian boon much more rajiid than that of the older portions of the three states. So groat has been tho increase of tiixablo woaltli In proiiortion to populotioii, it is claimed by tho advocates ot tho scliome, that its taxing valuo to tho three states is much in excess of tho political power behind it, and it has boon inipossiblo to secnro tho passage of many laws and tho making of many appropriations demanded by tho mineral timber region, "In fact," one of the strongest adv(x;at(!s ot tho now commonwealth says, "wo aro receiving less for tho taxes wo pay tlum any other section ot either ot tho old states, luid wo aro getting tired ot it." Notwithstanding tho fact, however, that a majority of tho citizens in tho northern portions of tho states seem to favor the scheme, very many consider it an irapraotioablo ono, and somo mo decidodly opposed to it, and it goes without saying that no ono in tho licaith-tirn aud older portions of Wiscioiisiii, Michigan or Minnesota favors it. This is not tho first Bcliemo for tho formation of a now stato from portions of old ones, but with tho exception ot West Virginia, which was erected out ot tho northwostorn portion of Virginia as a war measuro %vhilo yet Virginia was a stato in tho Southern Confederacy, none of these fxihomes ha� over been carried through. It was stipulated when Texas came into tho Ciiion that at somo timo its tonitory should bo divided into four several states, but it has never been po.ssiblo to do this, and the sentiment there now is decidedly against it. Many years ago it was proposed to erect a state that should Include tho wholo of tho Delaware peninsula, which would take iu parts of Delaware, Marylimd mid Virginia, but none ot tlio states concerned, excepting Delaware, has over shown any favor to tho Bchcmo. Other "now stato" sohomes look to tho disposal of Nevada, which Is stoivd-ily decreasing iu populatiou. Ono of theso Bchomcs is to join Nevada and Utah, but thia does not please Utah. Another is to annex Ai'izonu to Nevada, but this has nover been regarded with gi'cat favor by tho residents of either political division. At tho present timo Nevada, with a iiopulatlou of only 40,000, has two senators iu the uiipcr houso ut Washington, and thoroforo lias tho same power in senatorial legislation as New Vork or any other of tho older and more populous states. , For u long timo, too, there has been talk of dividing tho stato of Now York, making a now stato out ot its cxtromo Bouthoustem portion, which would include New York city, Westohoster oonn-ty, Long Island and Staton Island. A similar plan, too, has boou proposed for tho division of Illinois. This plan would benefit Chioago, as the last mentiouod ono would bouoflt Now York olty. In each caso it Is claimed by the residenta of the big olty intorestod that anoh a division would relievo a great mnniol-pullty of control by voters who reside iu more or loss rural uoigliborhoods, and so aro not qualiflod to tako part lu mu uioipal goycrumout. There has often boon talk, too, of annexing tbo uorth-woatoru portion of Florida to Alabama, and Mtti-ylaiid haa a auit ponding that may deprive West Virginia of aovoral huuilrod aquuro miloa and leavo tho lat-tw state iu two parts;: with ivllou torrl-tory botwcon them. SJN(iLE COri.ES, riVE CENTS. ARE WE ALL TURNING RED? rrofcsBor Sfnrr's Odd Theory That Americans Will Ki'cntunlly llecomo Indians. Professor Frederick Starr ot tho anthropological department of Chicago university, wlio not long ago discovered that a drnp in the tomporatnro would make u rofornied thief steal, now nd-vanees the novel theory that after a lapse of niuiy years tho peoplo of America will ch.ango their physical characteristics until they resemble tho American Indian. In n recent lecture ho said: "From Vancouver island to Sitka the people aie, to all external appc.iriuice, of ono tyiie-dark skin, high cheek bones, black eyes aud straight, black hair.
