The allusion to the percentage of

well received in police circles. While

Ld^at*e6hirkctors who were active 111
the attack on the state capitol commis
sion law are literally shaking hands
with themselves today. The decision
of the supreme court holding the law
invalid is, of course, the cause of the
good feeling which prevails. In Bis
marck, it is reported, th-i prevailing
feeling is exactly the reverse
Naturally the question Stow arises,
what will be the procedure necessary
to affect the construction of a new cap
B. F. Spalding who was active in
the proceedings against Hie law, was
not inclined to speak for publication
concerning tlx: matter for the reason
that he was not fully informed as to
the decision. However, be stated that
a capitol building could not be legally
constructed until the funds necessary
for the work were on hand. In oth
er words, the capitol lands must be
sold and the money in the state treas
ury before the contract for the building
could be legally awarded.
Another question arising as a result
of the decision is whether or not the
work,of constructing a sew^r to the
capitol building may be legally pro
ceeded wth. The best opinion locally
on this subject' appears to be that the
work was not closely identified with
the capitol commission law and, there
fore might be continued.
The syllabus of the decision, which
was written by Chief Justice Morgan,
First, The erection of a residence
for the governor at the capitol is
within the purposes of the grant of
land made by congress to the state for
public buildings at the capital, under
Section 17 of the enabling act.
Second. The disposition of such
lands is exclusively with the legisla
ture and its action in such matters is
final unless violative of sOme constitu
tional provision and clearly contrary
to the terms of the grant.
Third. It is the province of the
legislature aloqe to determine the
manner in which said lands' may be
disposed of in furtherance
poses of said grant.
Fourth. All legislative power in
this state is vested in the senate and
house of representatives and the leg
islature cannot delegate such pow^r
in relation to purely legislative mat
Fifth. The power to determine
the manner of the |ise of the land
granted by section 1 of the enabling
act is purely legislative and cannot be
delegated to a commission.
Sixth. The power to limit the suip
that shall be used for each public
building authorized by said section 17
is purely legislative and cannot be
delegated to a commission. ,Y
Seventh. Chapter 166. Laws ot 1905,
provided for tht appointment of a cap
itol commission by the governor. Said
commission was thereby given author
ity to remodle and reconstruct tlie
capitol building o£ the state and to
erect a governor's residence at tH.b
capital out of the proceeds of the
lands donated to the state by congress.
The law did not specify what sum
should be used for the governor's resi
dence nor specify \yhen the building
shall be completed.
Held, that the law is invalid as an
unwarranted delegation of purely leg
islative powers. Boart} permanently
enjoined from further proceedings un

ESTABLISHING OF WORKING
WOMAN'S CLUB UNDER WAY
The movement to establish in Fargo
a Working Women's club house is meet
ing with gratifying success and the gen
eral outlook for this very desirable en
terprise is exceedingly bright. While
the proposed club house has received its
inception among ladies of the W. C.
1. U, it will have no official connection
with that organization, nor will it "bear
that name. The ladies who have seen
the need in Fargo for just such a club
house as is proposed, a rendezvous for
the working women of all grades down
town, a place for, mutual improvement,
reading, music, studying and resting, the
hearty and helpful co-operation of all
women's clubs and organizations, and
individuals is very much needed and de
sired. It is proposed to lease a build
ing as central as possible for club house
purposes, and part of the support will be
gained from the lunch and refreshment
room for the women workers which it
is intended to establish. The lunches
will be provided at moderate prices so
that those young women who see the es
pecial need of practicing clos? economy
will have the opportunity afforded. It
is also emphasized that the patrons of
the privileges to be supplied in the club
house will not.be required to be mem
bers of anything, respectability and good
character will" be the simple- require
A union meeting was held at the home
of Mrs.' H. A. McConville and it was
largely attended by ladies who are in
sympathy with the move and it was for
the purpose of receiving and considering
the report of the special committee, ap
pointed a week or so ago, to investigate
along general lines. The report was
accepted as vv?ll as the recommendation
of the committee that it was important
that immediate work be begun and that
every effort be put forth to secure suit
able rooms down town for club house
purposes, if possible on Broadway or
central Front street. Various phases Of
the proposition were discussed and fi
nally the following committee was ap
pointed, its work to be one ofgeneral
oversight of the preliminaries and the
committee was given power to act. At
present the committee consists of Mrs.
W. W. Tousley, Mrs, E. Gearey. sr.,
Mrs. F. H. Wilder, Mrs. J. R. Barlow*
Mrs H. A. McConville, Mrs. Nelson,
and Mrs. J. M. Johnson. The committee
will be enlarged and a number, of sub
committees will be made.
