TO INFLUENTIAL PLACE IN SENATE.
There is an inspiration for the young man in the
life of Knute Nelson, senator from Minnesota, who
was born in Norway ana started in life as a news-
boy on the streets of a Wisconsin town from which
he moved to Minnesota in 1871. During the last
session of congress he objected to a bill pr0vidint!'with Scott Ha,r*rove a" po'tmaster: Quy'
" j with W. A Parker as postmaster; Ap-
tliat newsboys shall be properly licensed before be- pieton. with m. e. Dorman as post-
ing privileged to cry their papers on the streets of
Washington. Jt was on this occasion that he tol l
the S'enate that he was a newsboy in his youth, put-
ting it in the following language: 4,I began life
ill 1840 as a newsboy. I had to earn my living. |„t whlch moted n.arir to tn. bottom
