Borne days ago the Chamber ot
Commerce took up with Senator E. D.
Smith the matter of procuring an of
ficial map from the department of ag
riculture, which could be used as a
basis for projecting a new county map.
Buch a map could be had from the
department, and plans were under
considerativa for turning the matt???
over to a competent engineer l? or
der that he might proceed with the
making of the map. A letter from
the fourth assistant postmaster gen
eral, however, reveals a plan whereby
msps or tho county can be secured at
far less cost than maps could be made
by a local engineer und sold to those
The fourth assistant postmaster
general writes Secretary Por

CITIZEN RAISES OBJECTION
WO! Be Taken by Council Prob
ably to Rescind Chairman
Declaring that (hu proposed bond
Issue for streer. paving would not
I carry BO long as the voters of the city
?were not allowed to elect the com
missioner's who will handle the funds
and direct this important work, a pro
minent taxpayer of the city declared
yesterday that he had sounded the
sentiment ot citizen? in his ward and
bad but one man who was not oppos
ed to the proposition as it now stood.
I this one man being undecided as to
?whether he would vote for or against
the bond issue.
"I am not saying that the people
lack of confidence In the commission
ers who have been appointed to take
charge of the paving matter," he
said, "but I do know that those with
whom I have talked think that city
council should not have the power of
making these Important appoint
ments. The people do not care for
self-appointed authorities to handle
the paving matter. On the contrary,
they prefer to select these men
themselves; and UK.-' prefer to do lt
at the polls."
The speaker was asked what he
thought of the chances ?for the bond
issue carrying were the voters al
lowed to select the commissioners,
?and be replied that he believed the
[proposition would prove acceptable to
I the taxpayers, though there woulld be
no big majority piled up.
Changes la Commission.
Aa will be recalled, city council
adopted resolutions creating a paving
commission of seven members, three
of whom should be 'members of city
council and four citizens selected at
large. Tho resolution further pro
vided that the mayor should be chair
man of the commission.
Some days ago Mayor Godfrey stAt
od that he thought city council had
unconsciously erred i In adopting that
feature of the resolution making the
mayor the chairmen ot the commis
sion, and said that at the next meet
ing ot council he would request that
that proviso of . thej< original resolu
tion be rescinded; leaving the matter
of selecting a chairman for the com
mlsaion to that body.
Farther Action Uncertain.
Whether council will take any ac
tion rescinding its termer action in
the manner In which the-paving com
ralselo wa? appointed, sSf^as? o!
course, to be seen.

Matter of Closing Up Details ot
Grain Proposition Now
Although ii?? local grain elevator
company or grain handling concern
has been organized, the Chamber of
Commerce has received a letter ad
dressed to the "Anderson Grain Ele
vator Company." in which the wvlter
expresses & wish to contract or sell
for June delivery Boinc 3,000 bushels
of oats. The writer of the letter is a
dealer in general merchandise and
fertilisers who has an establishment
in the country. As soon as a grain
elevator company has been formally
organized here, the communication
will be turned over to the proper au
thorities, who will probably make
some reply to tbe Inquirer.
The writer of the letter asks for a
biri on his oats, and states that he
will have them for sale and ls going
to sell them somewhere, it doesn't
make much difference where.
IJI this connection lt will be of in
terest to know that Mr. IO. II. Richards
of Willow City, N. D.. who came here
to consult local business men and
farmers with reference to ? grain ele
vator proposition and who has prac
tically agreed to subscribe to the cap
ital stock of one and manige it. ia
back from Columbia, where he went
several days ago on a sight-see'ing and
business trip combined.
It ls probable that- a grain elevator j
company will be formally organized
in the next few days and a charter ap
plied for. It ls the intention of those
behind the proposition to have work
on*the erection of the grain elevator!
under way by early spring.
