PUBLIC LA. D FUNDS
North Dakota Will Insist That Part
of Them Be Spent in the
Committee Named to Present the
State's Claims for Expenditures
Speoial to The Journal.
Bismarck, N. JL. Nov. IS.The ca m
paign of the North Dakota irrigation con
gress for the expenditure of the funds in
the government treasury arising from tlvs
sale of public lands in this state has
been started. General E. A. Williams,
surveyor general, has named a commit
tee to present the state's claims at Wash
ington, and other prominent citizens will
be added to the committee from time to
time. The counties of the state are
also making appropriation of funds to
carry on the work. The proceedings of
the first congress will be distributed, and
other printed matter will be issued from !
time to time.
One of the interesting addresses of a
leading irrigation and geological expert,
that of Colonel J. W. Powe.l, for many
years head of the United States geological
survey, has been preserved in the records
of the constitutional convention of. North
Dakota, and is especially apropos at this
time to controvert the claims of some of
the public men at the head of irrigation
work that North Dakota's constitution
will have to be amended to permit the
progress of Irrigation work.
Colonel Powell addressed the constitu
tional Convention on Aug. 5, 1889, and
then made an earrtest plea for the adop
tion of a constitutional provision that
would protect the water rights - of the
state and prevent their falling into the
hands of private persons and corporations,
as had happened in other states.
The constitutional provision of North
Dakota, reserviug all water rights, was
adopted upon the arguments of Cd!onel
Powell, who was among the foremost men
in his department. General Williams calls
attention to this address, and copies of it
will be forwarded to the representatives
of the state at Washington.
The remarkable development of the Mis
souri slope in the past few, years Is no
where more conclusively proven than in
the rapid growth of transportation facil
ities and public utilities. Only a few
years ago the surrounding towns within
a radius of fortj- to fifty miles from Bis
marck were to be reached only after long
tiresome journeys by wagon. There was
no means of communication except the
mails, which ran by star routes, some
times only once in two days. Washburn,
in McLean county Linton and WiLiams
port, in BmmOns county Ashley, Napo
leon, Wish ek and other outlying towns
were to be reached only by team.
This condition has been changed en
tirely since 1899. The Soo road has built
into Bismarck from the southwest, bring
ing Ashley, Wishek, Braddock, Oakes and
the towns in the southern part of the
state into direct daily railroad communi
cation with the slope. The recent com
pletion of the Northern Pacific branch
from Linton to McKenzie and the estab
lishment of train service in connection
with the Milwaukee brings the Emmons
county capital closer to Bismarck, and
aso affords a thru and direct
Milwaukee points in South
Washburn is connected wi th the capital
by the Washburn line.
Long distance telephone lines have been
established from Bismarck to Mandan,
Dickinson and intermediate points to
Washburn and intermediate points, and
the long distance line from Linton has
been completed as far as Hazleton and
will be continued to the capital city next
year. All slope points are now connected,
both by railroad and telephone, to the
great convenience of all business in
Capitol Wing to Be Built.
The state board of capitol commission
ers has decided to proceed with the work
of completing the north wing of tbe cap
itol, authorized by the legislature of last
winter. Bonds were authorized, to be
paid from the sale of capitOi building
lands, but the bonds were not sold be
cause of the litigation that ensued over
the state institution bonds. The board,
however, will not find it necessary to sell
bonds, since there will be enough cash
from the sale of Oapitol building lands to
begin the work of construction and carry
it well along to completion, and by tho
time the last of the funds will be needed,
additional sales of capital lands will fur
nish the money. The commissioners will
advertise for bids in the near future, to
be opened some time early in January.
As a result of the action of the state
emergency board in furnishing some funds
for the "Valley City normal school and the
state deaf school at Devils Lake, work
on the unfinished buildings there has been
resumed and will be pushed to comple

BUILDINGS TORN DOWN
Residents of Richards Are Holding the
Fort in Tents, However.
CASS LAKE, MINNPursuant to the de
termination of the agents of the Indian de
partment/ to allow no one to erect any kind
of a building on the late Chippewa Indian
reservation, the buildings which had been put
together at Richards, the new townsite of Cass
Lake, were torn dowu oft Monday afternoon.
It was early in the afternoon, when the Indian
police, from Bent appeared on the townsite, and
began to team down the buildings. A verbal
protest against the action of the Indians did
not deter them, upon which a written protest
was placed in the hands of tbe commander of the
police with instructions to deliver the same to
Captain C. H. Beaulieau. subagent in charge of
the agency at Bent. The latter replied ip writ
ing that his orders were to allow no buildings
to go up on tbe townsite, and that if auy were
erected to tear them down forthwith.
The owners of the buildings offered no re
sistence beyond the verbal and written protest,
and the police tore the buildings down, leaving
the sills, however. It is expected that a decis'
Ion will be made in a very few days relative to
the rights of the people of the townsite. They
still continue in possession of the land, despite
the fact that the weather is extremely cold and
they ore compelled to -live in tents.

With Causing the Bear Creek
Letter of Confession Sent to a Priest
Held to Have Been Forged
Special to Tho Journal.
Appleton. Wis., Nov. 18.The taking of
testimony in the Bear Creek arson case,
wherein Mrs. Lucile Colbert, aged 60, is
charged with setting fire to her millinery
store m July. 1902. and causing the de

testimony as to the handwriting of an
alleged Confession sent to a priest at Bear
Creek is expected to prove sensation al

letter, purporting to have been written by
a man in a Chicago hospital, was in reality
written by Mrs. Colbert to divert suspi
cion from herself.
Mrs. Colbert is accompanied in court by
her daughter, Mrs. Louis Lan ge of Fond

one. and originated in Missoula county
