CZAR'S VISIT

NORTH DAKOTA IRRIGATION.
Senator HansbrouKh Discusses the Irrigation
Law as It Applies to This State.
Washington," Oct. 12. Senator
Hansbrough, as the originator of na
tional legislation on the subject, has
kept in touch with the national irriga*
tion situation during the recess of con
gress, and has noted especially the ef
forts that are to be made to have a por
tion of the irrigation fund expended in
western North Dakota. Since he came
to Washington he has made a personal
investigation of the law relating to the
expenditure of the funds set aside for
irrigation and reclamation of arid
lands, and he declares that the state
will not suffer in any way in the carry
ing out of the plans of the government.
In discussing the subject Senator
Hansbrough said:
"In regard to the expenditure of
funds in the state and territories from
whole land sales the funds have been
derived, some misleading statements
have been made. Under the law the
secretary is obliged, if he can do so,
to expend the money in the states and
territories from whence the money
came."
The exact wording of the law*Oil this
point is as follows:
That it is hereby declared to be the
duty of the secretary of the interior in
carrying out the provisions of this act,
so far as the same may be practicable
and subject to the existence of feasible
irrigation projects, to expend the ma
jor portion of the funds arising from
the sale of public lands within each
state and territory hereinbefore named
for the benefit of ari^ and setnirarid
lands within the limits of such state or
territory provided that the secretary
may temporarily use such portion of
said funds for the benefit of arid or
semiarid lands deem advisable, but
lien so
vused
the excess shall be re­
stored to the fund as soon as practi
cable, to the end that ultimately, and
in any event, within each ten year per
iod. after .the, passage of this acL, the.
expenditure's fol" "the benefit of said
states and territories shall be equalized
according,to the proportions and sub
ject to the conditions as to practicabil
ity and feasibility aforesaid.
f,Thus
it will be observed that no
money belonging to any particular
state or territory is to be taken away
permanently. North Dakota has the
largest sum to its credit of any state or
territory named in the law. I have
no doubt that-every dollar of it will be
spent within the state if sufficient
water and enough available land can be
found.
"Necessarily the national irrigation
law,is slow of execution. The impor
tance of the work requires the great
est care, and the people of the states
and territories interested must not be
come impatient if delays are apparent.
Expert hydrographevs and engineers
must examine the vast regions to de
termine where irrigation is feasible.
Upon their report the secretary of the
interior decides which of the various
enterprises shall be undertaken. He
then proclaims the withdrawal from en
try, except under the irrigation law, of
the available irrigable lands under each
project which he has concluded to de
velop. His next step is to let con
tracts for the construction of the neces
sary works. In the case of North Da
kota there will be a number of projects
but none of them extensive. Several
surveyors have been in the field in the
western, portion of the state all sum
mer.' Their reports will reach the sec
retary during the winter and his procla
mations may be expected early next
spring. The work of construction will
follow as soon as contracts can be
made." i

TO WELCOME ITALIAN KING.
The Dago Royalty Will Make a THjf 0 the
Land of the Prog Eaters. l-r
Pafis, Oct. la.—^Elaborate arrange
ments are beinfe carried out for the wel
come here of king Victor Emmanuel
and Queen Helena. They are on a
scale of truly royal splendor. The fetes
will follow the style pf. those held at
the time of4he recent visit to Paris of
King Edward, and will include a 11 utu
rner of events affording opportunities
for brilliant specular effects. Govern
ment architects have provided a plan
for the decoration of the streets by day
and for illuminations by night. Private
residents and shopkeepers litiVe con
tributed large sums of money toward
transforming the avenues and boule
vards of the city into riiasses of color,
with floral arches, Venetian masts, and
looping of flowers. A larg eforce of
troops is being assembled to add to
the military pageantry of the event. As
a measure of precaution the govern
ment hris instituted a strict surveillance
over the anarchists of Paris and during
his stay in the city the Italian monarch
will be well guarded by secret service
men of both France and Italy.
King Victor Emmanuel and his con
sort arrive at noon Wednesday. Presi
dent Loubet. the members of the min
istry, and the staff of the Italian em
bassy will proceed to the Bois de Bou
logne station to meet them. The sta
tion will be hung with'rich .velvet and
Gobelin tapestries. The meeting be
tween the president and the king will
take place uhder a silken canopy. Af
ter the greetings the royal visitors and
President Loubet will enter elaborate
state carriages, with postillions and
outriders, and escorted by a regiment
of cuirassiers, they will drive through
the'"Bois and the Champs Elysees to
the Italian embassy. Throughout the
entire route soldiers will be massed on
either side of the thoroughfare.
Wednesday evening a banquet will
be given at the Elysee. Yhe next day
King Victor Emmanuel and President
Loubet will visit Verseillels where after
luncheon has been served they will in
spect the palace and the park. The
king and president will return to Paris
by road in a carriage. A gala perfor
mance at the opera will take place in
the evening. The next day, Friday, a
visit will be paid to the city. The offi
cials reception will take place at the
Hotel de Ville. Thence the royal party
will proceed to the mint, where to the
king will be presented
ra
Aside^ from its spectfet^af^
the vis(t. 0/ King Victor Emmanuel is
leading to a wide range of speculation
in the matter of its political signficance.
French officials state freely that thfs
visit marks the culmination of the ef
forts that have been making for several
years past to restore a complete en
tente cordiale between the two nations,
which were strained for a long lime
by the tariff war between France and
Italy. They say, also, that it is an evi
dence that the foreign policy of France,
Italy and Great Britain is to be con
ducted along sympathetic line$,

term. In accordance with custom 110
business was transacted 011 the opening
day. The members ofthe court paid a
visit to the president and afterward held
a brief session to hear applicants for
admission to the bar.
The present session promises to be
interesting because of important cases
to be argued. The mo$t important case
will be the appeal of-the Northern Se
curities Co., from the decision of a
special bench of the United States Cir
cuit Couit of JVlinnesota,-which, declar
ed the company illegal. Two cases,
one from Porto Rico, and the other
from the Philippines involve the ques

Philippines acts, imposing tariff duties,
violate the constitution. Another case
will involve the question whether na
tives of Porto Rico are citizens «HE' the

INSURGENTS EXTERMINATED.
Monastir, European Turkey, Oct. 12.—
The artillery operations in the western
part of Monastir Valley are\practically
completed. The remaining' band of
revolutionists was annihilated yesterday
afternoon after a desperate fight. The
band which numbered ninety-three mem
bers, was lurking in the mountains of
Peristeri. During the night two Turkish
detachments, one from the east and the
Other from the west, «et out for the hid
ing place of tne insurgents. The detach
ment from the east found the revolu
tionists strongly posted on a precipitous
"dge. '.
v.
The insurgents immediately when they
became aware of the presence of the
troops began to roll huge boulders down
the mountain sidfi, thus killing four and
wounding three of their besiegers. The
troops unwaveringly 'fcOntlriued to climb
the mountain the face of which was so
steep that the wounded- hand no chance
but rolled to the foot of the precipice
as soon as they were struck. The
Turks maintained 4 steady tire as they
proceeded upward. After a desperate
conflict had been cirried oh several
hours and .while the issue Was still
doubtful, the Turkish detachment from
the west reached the crest of the ridge.
The Bulgarians were, thus placed be
tween two fires. The revolutionists suc
ceeded in forcing the troops to fall back
to less precipitous slopes of the moun
tains, but last sixty-five killed and a

Much /Sickness Predicted This Fall.
Precautions Should Be

Taken.
"Our seasons nowadays 'seem to be

Republican reporter the other day to
Mr. Porterfield of the fiftn of Fout.^Bc

sudden changes cannot help but result in
early fall colds, the grippe.and other
sickness. This ^ojKjitiqn

"You arc right," said Mr. Portei"
field, "the weather indications all point
to a cold, wet and generally unhealthy
tall, and people are wanted to take e
tra precautions to ward off sickness,
especially the old, and tftose frho Stje
already in delicate health."
If wc could only meet eVery person
in this city face to face and tell them
what a grand protection to health Vihol
is, we know we could convince them so
we would not have clerks enough in oi^r
store to fill their orders. You see, We
have been selling Vinol for several
years, and every bottle is sold oil a pos
itive guarantee that if it doefe not ,(jk
as we say, we will pay back the mon^y,
and as wTe have not been asked to .re
fund for more thari two bottles outWf
every hundred sold, this proves that
Vinol is successful in ninety-eight casts
out of every hundred.
We never sold a medicine that is^jto
universally successful and yet this" lS
not strange, for Vinol is the only prep
aration of cod liver oil which does not
contain oil, or any disagreeable feature,
yet does contain every one of the fifty
odd medicinal curatives that are fotind
in cod liver oil. 1
If you know of any one who needs
the grandest, surest, most pleasant
tonic rebuilder of strength, one that will
positively cure chronic colds, coughs,
bronchitis, strengthen the old. build up
the weak and run down and make rich,
red blood, and health in place of pallor
and weakness, just send them in here
for a bottle of Vinol. aiid if it does not
do them good it won't cost them a cent.

One of the most important matters-to
come before the convention is the pro
posed legislation to put a time, limit on
the operation of a mulct petition.
When, under the present law, saioon
are secured through a petition of voters
they continue in operation indefinitely.
Anti-saloon workers declare that with
in a few years the sentiment of the
neighborhood may have changed and
those opposing may be in the majority.
So a legislative committee will be ap
pointed to lobby for an amendment to
the present law making it necessary to
secure7 new petitions at intervals.
NEW MEXICAN FAIR.
Albuquerque, N. M., Oct. 12.—The
big territorial fair which opened in this
city today is well calculated to convince
the skeptical that New Mexico 1s en
titled to statehood. The exhibits arc
numerous and of a high class and show
what New Mexico has accomplished in
recent years in the way of developing
her many natural resources. '1 he fruit
exhibit, showing the resillts of irriga
