He could not satisfactorily answer. Asked about Canadian wheat tariff, he said that was a question which did not matter.

The meeting was not a howl ing success for the office seekers. the death of his wife, was one of those who arriyed and the guards at first refused to admit him.

TAYLOR MUST 8ERVE. -No Chance for Crook to Be Pardoned At This Time. .-Grand Forks, N. D., June 1.—George Taylor has been In Grand Forks sev eral days in the interests of his broth er, J. W. Taylor, who nearly two years ago was sentenced to a term of seven and a half years at Bismarck. Taylor was sentenced under the name of C. H. Foster, and with R. C. Hicks and G. H. Bradford were ar rested at Minot on a charge of robbing a Great Northern passenger named Perry on an overland train between this city and Niagara. They were brought back here and strong cases made against them. Foster was sent enced to seven and a half years, Hicks to eight and a half years and Bradford to nine and a half years. State's At tox-ney Wineman has declined to rec ommend a commutation of the sent ence of Foster at this time. As a petition to the board of pardons.with out the signature of the jirosecutor would be of little value, it is hardly likely that anything will be done now looking to the lessening of the time fixed in the sentence imposed by Judge Fisk a year ago last December. Judge Fisk declined to agree to any reduction of the sentence until Foster had at least served two years of the term imposed. George Taylor lives at Columbus, O., and he was accompan ied to Grand Forks by Mrs. J. W. Taylor and son, wife and son of the man who under the name of C. H. Foster is now serving time. They live at St. Paul. Indeed, everyone is engaged' in some variety of occupation in our domestic habitat—, Excluding, as primarily suggested., our distinguished progenitor.

While I feel confident that noxt year will find us prepared for active work under a new law, with financial aid either through a loan from the government, or from state funds at a low rate of interest, at the same time I would urgently recommend that you proceed and put in all the drains pos sible this year, utilizing as far as con sistent the topographical surveys made by the government engineers. Although the expenses and rates of interest may be higher now than In the future, even so the extra pro ceeds from one crop, after drainage, might pay more than the difference— besides the work will be done. Drainage is the solution of the prosperity of this valley and the soon er that is accomplished, tho earlier we will receive fruits from our labors by way of uniform yields, and better prices for our lands.

Pembina Murderer Will One* More Ask the Board of Pardons to Giye Him His Freedom—Story of the Crime. Bismarck, N. D., June 1.—Tracy R. Bangs appears before the state board of pardons and asks that the life sen tence of Josef Till be commuted to fif teen years. Till was convicted on circumstan tial evidence in Pembina county of the murder of his cousin, Henry Miller, and was sentenced to life imprison ment. Till is a Hungarian, as was hfa al leged victim, and Mr. Bangs is repre senting the Austria-Hungary consul in asking that the sentence be commut ed. The Till case was one of the murder cases in North Dakota that ha-J attracted wide attention. The murder of Miller occurred e'ght or nine days after Josef Till had ar rived in Pembina county from Hun gary, being accompanied to this coun try by Mrs, Miller, who came to join her husband, who had been in this country several years. A few days after their arrival the body of Miller was found on the farm of a man nam ed Bedois. Till was irrested, tried and convict ed purely on circumstantial evidence, it being claimed that jealousy was the motive of the crime. After Till had been sentenced to life imprisonment friends took up his case with the Hun garian government, and a few years ago a pardon was asked for Till, but at the time was denied. Judgoi Morgan was a member of the pardon board at thetime, and he was the man who prosecuted the case against Till when he was convicted. The pardon board at the time, and he was the man Y. Sarles, Chief Justice D. E. Morgan, Attorney General Frick, R. g. Adams and Henry Bowles. Should Till's sentence be commuted to fifteen years' imprisonment he would secure his freedom within a short time, computing hia time for good behavior. The innocence or guilt of Josef Till has long been a question of consider able importance in Pembina coun ty, where the killing occurred and there are many there who believe that Till should never have been convicted. On the other hand there are many who claim that he should serve a life sen tence. Those who profess to bclleva in the innocence of the condemned man claim that the evidence that was brought against him was through the efforts of Hungarian* in that section of the state who sought to thus pro tect the real criminal.
