Democrat, has been electeti gover nor of a Uopubllcan state, Minnesota. It used to be said that his election WHS due to the Swedish-Ameri can vote, which is very heavy in that state, and Mr. Johnson is a .Swede. However this year his Hepuldican opponent was a Swede and the Swedish vote was divided. Jt iippur-ent now that his strength is duo to other reasons than the fact that ho is a Swede. Ho must have made a good governor and d(!sorved reelection. .lohnson wuh before the last Nation ul Convention as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President but hnd little show against Uryan. Four years from now .lohnson ought to be the loader in the race for the chief place on his party ticket unless j somo greater Mo.scs arises to lead | the Democrats out of tho wilderness.; At the present time the men who stand in front at; the possililc presidential randidate.s in 1012 are .lohn A. .lohnson, Democrat and (lovpriior Hughes, of New Voik, -Hepulilican. j They rank as two of tlie cleanest anil ablest men in .Vmerican ulTairs.

Monarch, .Mbi-vfa, is u miles northwest of I.ethliriilge and on an excellent road the frrade of wliich is liiiished right throuu'h the townsite.
