1 1 4 1 The Largest and Most Complete House Furnishers i In the West. WE SUNBURST 9ENINSUKIR 0 0 A BIG GAME MONDAY. The Second Team of the Minnesota U. to Play the A. C. Monday Afternoon. Probably the best football game of the season in Fargo will be played at Broadway Park Monday afternoon be tween the second team of the Univer sity of Minnesota and the North Da kota Agricultural College. There was some difference regarding the choice of officials, Coach Williams of the uni versity team insisting on acting as um pire, a thing unusual in the ethics of college athletics. But with Minnesota it was Coach Williams for umpire or WASEM&GA 110 game, so the local management gave in. Dr. Wheeler will probably referee. The gophers are after revenge for the de feat sustained by them two years ago, when they were compelled to return to Minneapolis with the score 17 to 0 against them. 1 he second team is said to have scored quite frequently upon the first team this year and it looks like the A. C. boys are up against a hard proposition. The locals are in fairly good shape with the exception !«f Rose, whose ankle bothers him con siderably. The ,A. C. boys expect to hold the score down low. They have ?iot been scored upon since 1901 and •have shown up well this'year against a number of teams. There seems good reason to believe the boys will give a good account of themselves and the y.- surprise will not be great if the Min nesota boys are sent home a second time with a defeat to accompany them. Pn account of the numerous subs that will accompany the university team and i£he distance, the expense of the game will be great.

P. this morning for Valley City, where this afternoon a game is being played with the normal school team. The High School is stronger than us ual this year and will probably put up a good game. Having defeated Fargo College the first game of the Season by a good sized score and then Fergus Falls and the Grajid Forks High School team the local boys are feeling their oats. They have not had a game for sometime, however, and this may work to their disadvantage. They are greatly outweighed by the normal boys, who recently defeated the University of North Dakota and are reported confi ft.

C. Sickler of Wilkesbarre, Pa., a heavy stockholder and one of the chief pro moters, and Fred MorjiJl, local attor ney of the Fargo & Moorhead Street Railway Co., will appear before the board and ask for an extension of time in which to complete the road. In con ference with Mayor Sweet, yesterday, they suggested Aug. 1 as the probable date of the extension proposed. Th Forum interviewed a number of members of the city council this morn ing regarding the proposed extension of the franchise and there seems to be little or no opposition to the request. In speaking of the matter this morn ing one member of the municipal fam ily said: "I don't see that the city has anything, to lose by a little generosity in this matter. The«genthemen who are at present at the head of the street car company are acting in good faith and I am satisfied if they are given the opportunity that they will go ahead, and complete and operate the road. They have displayed the railroad com pany's receipts for the shipment of sev en cars of steel rails, which were load ed on Oc!t. 26 to Fargo football sports left, yesterday on the G."N. and P. fbir.

"Does Fargo want the strefet rail way? you ask. I see no reason why every citizen and especially property owners should not be in favor of it. Aside from the convenience of the line as a means of rapid transportation from one city to the other and from the in terior to remote and now isolated dis tricts, it will be a savior and creator of revenue. The company will pay taxes on an investment in this city of per haps $200,000, will employ many men who will find homes and spend their earnings here, and will save to the city in the matter of paving from $100,000. $60,000 This is an item that has been overlooked, but which is provided for in the franchise. If there were oth er companies looking for a street rail way franchise in this city the matter of extending the franchise of the present company might have a different aspects But you know and everybody knowsi that there is no competition in this, matter, nor is there lijcely to be. I look at it as a chance for Fargo to enrich and benefit herself—a chance .to spread out and grow—and will talk: and vote for an extension. .. "Regarding the $3,000 bonus now in the hands of the city treasurer I think it should remain right where it is and not be declared forfeited until Aug, 1 next. .Fargo does not need this money, and she does need a street car line. With the showing the company has made we could not declare this money forfeited on November 1. Of course, the company cannot complete and have in operation its lines by Dec. 1, and then, if we cared to pose as the modern Shylock we could declare it forfeited and pocket it. But this Shylockian at titude has been mighty unpopular in ordinary business transactions and un der the circumstances I do not think the city wants the pound of flesh. The franchise should be extended and the money Ji.eld as a forfeit fund until Aug 1." pr iXur' Wi r'ii?' J. j. Vt#'' 'J*J 11' ..ALL DEALER. ,A#WIPI F-v V*«: a Proof of} tKc Pudding?* Park.
