I THE ORTONVILLE INDEPENDENT VOLUME IIl ORTONVILLE, MINN. THURSDAY, MAY 25, 1922 m NUMBER 3 KELLOGG'S VOTE ON NEWBERRY CASE SCORED BY ANNA B. OLESEN HERE Democratic Candidate for! * U. S. Senator Says Junior I nator's Vote On That! Point will Defeat Him. "Altho the preqs of Minnesota, the in. rye corporations and the whole po- i litical machine are almost solidly be-i te re-election of Senator Kel- I egg,. 1 am confident that the good People of this state are stronger than any political machine and I feel cer- fain that after they have re,d be- tween the lines they will go to the poles and cast their vote in defeat of the Junior Senator." Thus declared Anna B. Otesen, democratic candidate for United States Senator in her open- ing campaign speech at the Orpheum theatre here last Thursday after- oon. At the meeting were more than 250 farmers who had traveled over greasy loads in defiance of a threatening sky to be 15resent to hear her talk, which was held in conjunction with Com- munity Sales Day. "I wonder how many there are here who realise the significance that is at- tached to this meeting," the speaker questioned. Continuing she said, "I for my part must confess that I had ao idea of the importance the this meeting holds to others over the state, until my arrival at Ortonville Wed- hominy, when I found awaiting me a dozen telegrams from all parts of the state, wanting a report on what I am going to say to you here this at-noon. There is also present at this meeting a special representative :[or The Pioneer Press who has been assigned to give a verbatim report of my speech." Mrs. Olesen, armed with statistics and cemplete data dealing with the m-ating of Senator Truman New. berry, scored a decided hit with her amflence when she said," I believe that Senator Kellogge s vote on this qINstion alone has opened the ees of the voters of this state and that all the money in the country cannot buy the votes of Minnestans who are at all familiar with the facts surround- ing-the phase of his record. 't "W .,._ we, as American citizens, were .mult from cklldhol on that mtta in zae Hou,e and Senate oft Ufitt States were meant to he titled Y me and women who are lawfuUy . elected by the people-and that they were not for sale," Mrs. Olesen de- eaalL Pleading for the support of the far' mhrs, with whom she allied, herself, speaker held that there had been l oo much time and money spent on J aPpropriations for the eradication of the barberry bush, thus supplying soft jobs" as weed inspectors, ere_, r men affiliated with the party. That enough time had been spent on the rtant issues confronting the far- mera today, mainly the matter of World markets. Further criticising the present ad- ministration, Mrs. Olesen called at- tention to the proposed two billion dollar tariff bill now under consider- atio_ This, she declared, if passed, Would mean further enslavement of the common people. Expressing her views on the poli- tical outlook the speaker said," I he- Here this is a Democratic year, be- cause the Republicans have not lived up to their promises. They promised Prosperity. No one has seen it--ex- cept Will Hays." statement together with the one in which she charged that the xik-oad had been favored by the pres- ent Congress met with hearty ap- proval of her audi,ene. Mrs. Olesen expressed the belief that the lade- Pmldent voters would eara-y "the state by  overwhelming majority. uI believe the time is at hand when men ami women refuse to be labeled insofar as their political life is eon- cmed. I realize that there are pre and_00 00pub00, .Detmmmts and Far- mer supporte, but I am mrs that you am going to-tat u the ma- jority of the voters ever the state are ---that is, "Nt out' the-varinns:eandi- dates in the coming election and chooN the one you believe best - ted, irrespective of party lines." 'Ibuohing upon her plans in the eom- lag eampaigu MaL Otmm said that she intended to buy a Ute Ford, "ahd over three hundred towns in where I will deliver my message to the people direr" Olesen addressed a fairly large gathering at Graceville Thursday vening. "If the sentiment of these meetings can be taken as indicative of the general sentiment over the farming areas of the state, and I be- lieve it can be, Senator Kellogg had best prepare for a strenuous cam- paign," she said.

The child was found near the shore in front of the Eldred lot between this city and the Pen- insula, about three hundred feet from its home, ten ,minutes after its disappearance. When found the child was dead., Ap- plication of a pulmotor failed to resuscitate any sign of fife. How the child drowned un- less by wading out into the lame cannot be accounted for. There is no dock in the immediate vicinity of where the child was found, frown which it could have fallen. According to Mrs. Van- Horn, the child had not been in the habit of playing on the shore line ahd had never shown fondness for water. It was during the noon hour when Mrs. VanHorn was preparing dinner that Eleanor slipped away from her mother's sight. Funeral services will he held from the home at 2:00 o'clock Friday afternoon. In osing Eleanor, through an accidental drowning, Mr. and Mrs. VanHorn have experienced added grief within a period of three years.

Plans Being Perfected for Monster Affair by Legion Boys. Observance of July 4th at Oton- rills, in the form of a monster cele- bration is the plan of members of Ralph M. Spink Post of the American Legion. At a meeting of that body held on Monday night a comanittee consisting of "Bill" Randall, Henry Lentz, Herbert Bolsta, Floyd Atha, and G. C. Tyler, with the latter as chairman, was appointed to work in conjunction with the business places to raise funds necessary for the stag- ing of a celebration. It is planned to make the affair of such importance as to draw hundreds of people from the surrounding terri- tory, with individual forms of amuse- ment, water sports and carnival stunts, all under direct supervision of the Legion with members of that organization taking part. In view of the fact that this city has not held a Fourth of July celebra- tion for several years and the further fact that because of its natural ad- vantages over other towns, expecta- tions are that the city will be a cen- ter for one of the largest crowds that will have gathered in this section of the state for a like celebration. Further announcements as to pro- gram and details of arrangements will be made from time to time as they are completed.

Ortonville In On Tribune's Big Minnesota Scenic Booster Issue Scenes of Big Stone Lake Will Be=.Big Stone Lake will not be forgotten Feature of Rotogravure Sec- tion of Minneapolis '*rftb." "Make iunesota the Summer Re- sort of America," is the slogan adopt- ed by the Minneapolis Tribune in its advertising campaign, in which that paper has asked thk co-operation of the press anct citizens of Minnesota in putting across its ideas. Publica- tion of its first lake booster edition appeared last Sunday when beauti- ful parorama views of northern Minne- sota lakes were reprinted. Next Stm- day, Aune 4, the big edition will be .published. It will contain an 8 page rotogravure section and a 12 page black and white section showing some of the scenic loveliness and outing re- sources for which this state ia he- coming so nationally fnous. Acting upon the invitation extend- ed by The THbune thru its olmmm, the Ortonvflle Independent, alive to the value mmh publicity would be to OrtonviIIe and Big Stone Lake, wrote a letter to the editor of the Tribune asking that view of Big Stone Lake be included. The letter was deliver- eel in person by "Jack" Andermm, on Saturday, just 2 hours after he left here with his platte, and a reply sign- ed by CHnt Johnson, of the rotograv- ure dvpartment, eame back--"l will be very glad to use about 200 words on Ortvilie and the surreundi Big 'Stone Lake eountry--mlso one or two good photograph 8x10 for the eensld- eration of mr rotogravure editor." Photographs and the write-up were immediately forwarded and auuraneu have been given that Ortonville lad in this spemtl issue of the "Trib" next Sunday. The primary object of the booster edition is to acquaint people over the United States, particularly those of the Northwest states, with the oppor- tunities that Minnesota holds ou to them as the "Nation's Playground." Thousands of extra copies will he printed and distributed by every rail- roal company that has lines entering the state, and by civic and commerce associations of the larger cities, as well as by individuals wio are inter- eared in the advancement of Minne- sota as a vacationist's paradise. "With the right kind of team-work and co-operation between press and public, the story of a vacation or a summer in Minnesota can be "carried far this year, with results that may surpass the best of our dreams," says the Tribune. "Minnesota cannot splur, sprint and then -elax in its business of carrying this meesa of attractiveness, if it is to achieve the worthy end sought. It must keep sounding the note year after year, It can do so with clear comu:ionee and unwavering eye be- cause it has the goods for tourist, and varatioM amply worth the priee." Everyone living in this tion of the state owes it to himself from a financial standpoint, if for no other reason, te  extra es of the June 4thissue of the  and sae that they an) mailed to frletds living in other states. Every paper will be wrapped in a edal eoutaln- err ready for mailing.

Not satisfied with forcing entrance into one place, a burglar, who plied his profession at Correll, on Sunday night, paid a visit to three places, leaving the town in disgust, without having obtained what could be placed at a fair night wage. Entrance was made first in the pool hall, owned by Otto Gutknecht, where it is reported the transient made his most profitable "hadl." Here he smred a few dollars--the pro erty of the Correll Telephone Com- pany. After having successfully made his entrance and exi't at the pool hall he concimted that the next best store in Correll was the Correll CoOperative Company, devoted to hardware and machinery, At this pla antnee was 8ined by cutting the plate glass in the door and turning the lock. Chas. Kraft, msger of the store, wh was sleeping in the nmr of the bulldt at the  beard the noise and at about the same time the bur- lar heard Kraft, so neither got to see each oth. At this place noth- ing was Ob Concluding that he would give the town the "three times and out" pro- secure, the burglar made for the school house. What he expected to obtain there unless it was an educa- tion, is pondering in the minds of Cor- rell residents. Whether he escaped with any of that is not known. It is believed that the burglaries were committed by the same parties that forced entrance into the Kollitz Mercantile store of Odessa on Thurs- day night where they obtained mer- chandise of a considerable value. Addressing a letter under May 22 to The Independent a man writes from Correll giving instructions: "Drop my ad." "I had a buyer for the articles on Friday morning, the day after your paper was out," he writes, adng,, "It pays to mlvertise in The Independent, thanks." High School to Receive Diplomas.
