to us recently that while the mayor

was brought to reason and began

towed into town where it was hauled

NEWS OF THE STATE
Injured by Dynamite.
Dynamite is greatly in favor
throughout the state as an aid in
clsaring land of stumps, but once in
a while it turns upon its masters and
then someone is liable to get hurt.
Gust Nelson, living north of this
village, was seriously injured tost Sat
urday while engaged in the stump
blowing process on land owned by
Nelson and Crockett were both at
work. A charge had been placed in
a stump and according to reports both
men thought it had failed to go off,
Nelson going to investigate. Then
the charge exploded with the resulting
injury to Nelson.
He was struck by the flying debris
and was wounded in a number of
places, the most serious injury being
in his chest, which was punctured and
one lung badly injured. The man was
taken to his home and Dr. Page called.
It is said that he is going to recover.

Quick Action Saves Five Lives.
The quick action of Engineer Maher
of the Great Northern yesterday pre
vented a great tragedy and saved the
lives of five passengers. The driver
of Fearing's bus stopped on the Ninth
avenue crossing when a passenger
called out that he wanted to get out.
No. 1 of the Great Northern came
along just then and fortunately at a
slow speed. The engineer saw the
danger and put on the brakes and
stopped the train just as the engine I
nosed up to the bus with the five panic
stricken passengers. Had the train
been going just a bit faster all would I
probably have been killed as the bus
was directly on the track. The driver
explains that when the passenger
asked him to stop he forgot he was
on the track, and when he saw the
train coming he was so freightened
he could not get action on the motor.
He was given a calling down by the
engineer that he wili not soon forget.
Great credit is due Engineer Maher
for his cool head and quick action.

Daugherty Kicks Them Out.
Attorney General Daugherty has
scored one on the administration. He
has dispensed with the services of a
large flock of highly-paid attorneys,
retained by his predecessor for the an
nounced object of reducing the cost of
living. These gentlemen* were re
tained some two years ago. A few
economists pointed out at the time
that putting the wickedest of wicked
profiteers in jail might be all very
well, but as a remedy for high prices
it was about as affective as a flea
on a tin dog. We have difficulty in
remembering that any one went to
jail, but prices continued to soar
serenely. With equal serenity the

Taxation Relief First.
The demand of the country that
congress recognize taxation *as the
most important subject requiring its
attention and act accordingly has made
itself felt at the white house. Presi
dent Harding is not disposed to put
himself in the position of dictating to
congress or lay himself open to the
criticism of executive interference
with the legislative power, so that the
situation must have impressed him
strongly when he called Chairman
Fordney in consultation to urge him
to expedite action on revenue and
tariff measures and tranquilize the
country as far as that is possible
through the appearance of speed.
It is no less the province than the
duty of the executive to advise con
gress, as well as to exhort and even
lecture it, in matters bearing upon the
national welfare. It Is in the line of
the presidential prerogative and in
this instance is timely and gratifying.
The country will be the better pleased
as the activities of Mr. Harding gain
in pressure until congress is forced
into the action which every interest
demands. The extraordinary session
was called for reasons that placed
taxation at the front and there is a
wide opinion that time has been wast
ed as it is.
The situation makes it somewhat
unfortunate that action must wait

he is wrong and to force him to put

convinced or not.
