Unprecedent latitude has been taken
by many senators while discussing
the rate bill. Senator Gallinger had
just introduced an amendment in ref
erence to bookmaking by the inter
state commission. Senator Foraker
came in. He had not heaid anything.
"Mr. President," he said, "I don't
know what this amendment is or who
introduced it, but it should not go in
the bill." Other rate bill amenities:
I introduce this amendment," said
Senator La Follette, "so my colleague
(Senator Spooner) may have an op
portunity to lay it on the table." "I
will explain this to the senator from
South Carolina (Tillman)," said Sen
ator Aldrich, "although it is very dif

Plan Forum.
One of the strangest friendships in
Washington is that existing between
Senator Tillman of South Carolina
and ex-Senator Chandler of New
Hampshire. It is especially curious
considering that the two men repre
sent almost diametrically opposite
views on topics that have made more
enemies than friends. Tillman rep
resents all that is distasteful and
hateful to the north on the race is
sue. On the other hand, ex-Senator
Chandler has been one of the most
persistent flaunters of the "bloody
shirt." He advocated the force bill,
believes in restricting the south's'rep
resentation in congress and doesn't
hesitate to say that the negroes of the
south should be treated as equals of
the whites, and they have had numer
ous bitter forensic battles. On one oc
casion Chandler, bobbing up from
different seats, kept firing questions
at Tiliman while the latter was ad
dressing the chamber. The souther
ner at length become exasperated. "The
senator from New Hampshire," he
roared, waving his fists, "is the grass
hopper of this body.'' Up shot the
fragile form of Chandler. "Maybe he
As a result of a combination en
tered Into by the members of the
council prior to the meeting, and in
spite of the officials of the street
railway company conceding practic
ally everything demanded by the resi
dents along the Oak Grove line, the
passage of the street railway fran
chise ordinance was blocked at the
council meeting last night. Now it
appears that the building of a street
car line to the state fair grounds is
up to the supervisors of Fargo town
Just before ,the original franchise
ordinance was put to a vote Attorney
Watson, representing the street rail
way company, stated that the com
pany would be willing to extend the
proposed line on Sixth avenue north
to First street instead of to Third
street as was proposed in the ordin
ance. This proposition was put In
shape of an amendment and yet five
aldermen voted against it. It then
developed that the aldermen from the
first ward had entered into a com
bination with Alderman Mills to block
the passage of the ordinance under
any consideration.
Persons who were present at the
meeting for the express purpose of
protesting against the tearing up of
the Oak Grove line were dumfounded
when Alderman Mills voted against
the amendment.
"We want nothing better than the
changes in the line as proposed in
the amendment," said a prominent
property owner along the Oak Grove
As a matter of fact the street car
service would be far better for Oak
Grove residents and the line would
have been practically |an extension
of the present Oak Grove line.
The interest which was taken in the
street railway franchise ordinance
was evidenced by the number of per
sons who occupied every available
inch of space in the council chamber
last night. Every argument advanc
ed for and against the ordinance re
ceived careful attention and everyone
who had any interest or desire to be
heard in connection with the matter
was given the opportunity.
The Proceedings.
Ten aldermen responded to the roll
call last night. The mayor stated
that the purpose of the meeting was
to consider the matter of the street
railway extension but Alderman Van
Horn interrupted with a resolution de
claring the 'necessity ,for the con-,
elusion of the sidewalk on the east
side of block 12 Chapin's addition.
The resolution was adopted.
T. J. McEnroe repeated the argu
ments he had advanced at the last
meeting of the city council in op
position to the tearing up of the Oak
Woman Traveler From tha Coast
Bought Many Botttes of Milk.
A wifman traveler was mixed up in
a tittle deal at Larimore last Friday
noon while the overland passenger
was at the depot. She arrived on that
train and immediately went to the
restaurant of L. F. Mason. Here she
had a bottle filled with milk, and in
payment for the same she gave the
waiter a $5 bill $4.90 in change was
handed to her and she again boarded
the train. Shortly after the train left
Larimore, the bill was discovered to be
a counterfeit and Mr. Mason at once
telegraphed to the conductor of the
train at Mayville. The conductor ac
costed the woman at once, telling her
of the trouble. She promptly gave the
official 15, saying that she was not
aware that the money was not good.
Chief of Police Fadden of Larimore
made an effort to stop the woman at
Wahpeton, but the marshal of that
place could not be reached by wire
until too late. Two men who stopped
at Larimore stated to Mr. Mason that
the woman had come all the way from
the coast, and had the bottle filled
with milk at every railroad restaurant
along the line. There are a large num
ber of bills, such as the one passed at
Larimore, in circulation on the coast.
The fact that the woman dug down in
to a quantity of silver leads the offic
ials to believe that she was aware of
the fact that the money was not the
real article.

Crowd Was Chilled.
Bismarck Tribune: Ex-Congress
man Spalding has been seeking to fo
ment a little dissatisfaction in McLean
county at one or two meetings held
this week at which a few curious per
sons assembled and shivered while the
ex-congressman related the iniquities
of the republican organization in the
state, knowledge of which came to the
Grove line. He declared that the
street railway was paying good Inter
est on the investment yet the com
pany had not complied with the pro
visions of the original franchise or
dinance. Mr. McEnroe was of the
opinion that the city council could
not legally grant the street railway
company the right to take up the
Oak Grove line. Mr. McEnroe re
ferred occasionally to the down
trodden people and heartless corpora
ations, and Alderman Mills indicated
much pleasure.
G. 8. Barnes addressed the counoil
in opposition to the tearing up of the
Oak Grove line and compared the
local street railway to the Minneapo
lis street railway.
Colonel Morton stated that he was
one of the first persons to subscribe
$1,000 to the state fair and he was
surprised to learn that the state fair
proposition was about to be the means
of depriving him of the Oak Grove
line. He characterized the proposed
tearing up of the line as a rank
Attorney Watson, taking a state
ment made by Colonel Morton to the
effect that the street railway system
was for the benefit of the entire city
rather than any particular ward,
spoke on the advantages of the pro
posed change. He said that more
would be served by the street cfers
than is now the case.
"There seems to be a misunder
standing about thfe tearing up of the
Oak Grove line," said Mr. Waston, "as
a matter of fact it is only contem
plated to tear up three blocks and a
After a general discussion the
mayor instructed the auditor to read
the ordinance. Alderman Stern mov
ed that the ordinance be placed on
its final passage. Mr. Watson in
terrupted before a vote was taken
and stated that in view of the op
position in Oak Grove to the tearing
up of the line, he was authorized to
accept the amendment which had
been suggested, namely extending the
line on Sixth avenue to First street
instead of only to Third street. Al
derman Clapp offered the ordinance
as proposed by Mr. Watson. The
amendment was lost by a vote of six
to five. Roll Was then called on the
original motion. The vote was the
same as on the amendment. Aldermen
Lewis, Early, Stewart, Mills and
Graham voting in the negative.

The LaMoure Chronicle, one of the
most radical of insurgent newspapers
of the state, in commenting upon the
political issues of the present cam
paign, says: "So far as his (Sarles)
administration is concerned we think
it will be admitted by fair-minded
people that it does not appear unfav
orable in contrast wit!! the adminis
trations of his predecessors. And the
same may be said of other state offl
cers. There have been rumors and
threats of 'exposure' but candor com
pells us to admit—and we cheerfully
do admit—that little which Is discred
itable to the present administratloh
has been brought to light." The
Chronicle might have stated further
that strict search had been made to
find short-comings and delinquencies
but none were found.
