A Paris dispatch states that the
police are actively engaged in the sup
pression of traffic in young. French
girls, who are said to be Supplied
yearly to the number of fifty "to public
houses in Holland, Belgium and Ger
many. One man has been arrested
who has, it is claimed, made $io,ooo
annually, in this nefarious business.
People of North Dakota will note this
evidence of mor&l depravity and crime
with horror and dilate upon the awful
conditions in the French capital. They
are awful, but similar conditions
though perhaps not upon so extensive
a scale, exist in this country and fre
quently instances of as inhuman a traf
fic as related in the dispatch.' It is not
by condoning crime that it may be sup
pressed and this is as true in Fargo as
in any other city. The fottei^af right
eousness and sobriety must be as ag
gressive as the hordes of immorality
and crime or the latter will prevail.
The principle of arbitration seems
to have become so firmly established
as a just method of settling disputes
when agreement between the parties
concerned is impracticable that it ap
pears strange when a matter of such
importance as street railway transpor
tation in Chicago is concerned that re
sort to force should be deemed neces
sary to bring one of the parties to
terms. Street railway transportation
on over 220 miles of track in a city of
over 2,000,000 inhabitants is paralyzed
because the railway company cannot
come to an agreement with employes
and refuse to submit the differences to
an arbitration committee. The em
ployes refused to work until the, com
pany would consent to arbitrate. Up
on the face of the matter it would ap
pear that the railway company has
some potent reasons for not submit
ting the differences to arbitration that

There is a disease prevailing In this

heart failure or
apoplexy are often
the result of kid
ney disease. If
kidney trouble is
ed blood will at
tack the vital organs, causing catarrh of
the bladder, or the kidneys themselves
break down and waste away cell by cell.
Bladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and
a cure is obtained quickest by a proper
treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel
badly you can make no mistake by
Pr- Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in passing it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often through the day,
and to get up many times during the
night. The mild and the
effect of Swamp-Root is soon
It stands the highest for its wonderful
cures of the most distressing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and is
sold by all druggists in fifty-cent and
one-dollar size bottles. You may have a
sample bottle of this wonderful new dis
covery and a book that tells all about it,
both sent free by mail. Address, Dr. Kil

Congressman Spalding haS -di
rected the attention of Postmaster
General Payne to the fact that North
Dakota has but little more than half
her proportion of rural free delivery
mail routes as compared with most
other states that is, the average num
ber of routes in the United States is
about thirty for each congressman,
whereas North Dakota has only seven
teen for each representative. The ser
vice has proven very popular in North
Dakota and this effort of Mr. Spalding
to secure its extension will receive
hearty support. The policy of the de
partment, adopted a short time ago,
providing that there must be at least
100 families for each route, is directly
opposed to the establishment of more
routes in the state at present and it
seems unjust. There have been about
100 applicants for the establishment of
new routes in the state in addition to
those already established, which showst
how important it is that
limit should be reduced.
*3" Senator McCumber has intro
duced his bill providing for a national
inspection of grain and for the abolish
ment of state grain inspection. It is
expected that the Minnesota senators
will strongly object to the passage of
the measure, deeming it opposed to the,
interests of those controlling grain in
spection in the gopher state. While
that may not be the reason given for
attempting to defeat the bill it will ap
parently be the real reason. A nation
al grain inspection system would pos
sess several merits. There is no good
reason why the state of Minnesota or
any other state should control the in
spection of grain that* comes from a
number of states. There seem to be
several good reasons why the federal
government should supervise the in
spection. The fact that there has been,
so much dissatisfaction with state in
spection and that the majority of those
interested have no power to interfere
as matters stand ought to bring sup
port to Senator McCumber's measure.
Anyway the rails of the Fargo Street
Railway Co. are steel.
The president's appointment of
collector of customs for Charleston, S.
C., does not seem to be a Crum of
comfort for the United States senate.
A dispatch states that 10,000 people

from the agricultural colleges and ex

17, and the occasion will be one of
especial interest to the agricultural de

of experimental stations, has charge of
the local arrangements and the attend
ance will be large, as sixty-five colleges
and sixty experiment stations now hold
membership in the association. These
agricultural colleges are doing a great
work for the country. They have funds
and equipment estimated at $70,000,000,
and an annual income of $10,000,000.
There are 3,000 men in the faculties and
a student body of nearly 50,000. Of
these students nearly 7,000 are study
ing agriculture alone. The experiment
statioiu employ 7,000 experts and issue
