A. SWANStN CO. 514-516 FRONT STREEf FARUO, N. D. 1 At torney Barnett and Assistant State's Attorney Richardson are being con gratulated today on the victory. In refusing to pay to the city treas urer of Fargo the interest and penal ties on city taxes:, the county officials attacked the new municipal bill, under the provisions of which the city treas urer sought to collect the money from the county. The defense of the bill by the city was sustained by Judge Pollock and the case was then taken to the supreme court. The arguments were made at the last term of the su promc court in this city. The contentions of Barnett & Rich ardson in defense of the county treas urer's action in refusing to pay the interest and penalties on city taxes to City Treasurer Mitchell were: First, that the city Had never held an election and incorporated under the new act as provided, and could not, therefore, enjoy the privileges of the a second, that the act was unconsti i iiional as it was class legislation and ""tild make an unequal system of taxation, taxing the county for the benefit of the city. Choice Flax 1 Tliey Said Mr. Probstfleld: "The farms between Abercrorrfbie and Fargo are suffering the most. There is a strip extending for ten miles west from the river in which the fields are very wet and water is standing in most of them. I should say that 50 per cent of the acreage in this district has not been seeded' and there is little chance that it will be. But I think the damage in Rich land county has been overestimated. Everything between Wahpeton and Hankinson Is looking fine. "On the eastern side of the river conditions are very much the same. There is a wet strip near the river but elsewhere no damage has been done. In the course of my travels I visited Wheaton, Minn., and found the country around there in fine shape- From the reports which are coming in the same conditions exist to the north-in Traill county where the wei strip, la also about ten miles. While the farmers in the affected district have been hit hard and will probably i sustain serious financial loss, as they i will, be unable to raise more than half, »a ctep this year the trouble Is jxurely local, and the region affecteci is of so' small an area that thfere can be no serious effect pn the prosperity of the state as a whole. I All reports received at the diffetent machinery houses and elsewhere agree that the general outlook was never i better. Everywhere outside of the narrow wet strip crops are in a flour ishing condition. The crop failure locally will have very little effect on Fargo as the city now draws from In the world.,, TH-B FARGO FORUM AND DAILY REPtfBLTOAW. 8ATTTRTVA V wraavTtf** tt TVE* o inAC Farflo Commercial Club *9 follow Its 4|n|iual Meeting Tuesday Evan log With a Dinner.

Alderman Early was the only alderman Who voted against the ordinance. The ordinance was outlined in The Forum last night and was offered as a compromise so that the street rail way company might be in a position to accept a franchise from the officers of Fargo township, who have refused to grant a franchise to the street rail way company unless service is grant ed every day in the year to the state fair grounds. Aldermen Mills and McKellar of the sixth ward voted for the passage of the ordinance but botli indicated that jithey would rather that the line ex tend through the sixth ward on Third street instead of Fourth street. The ordinance provides that cars shall be run over the new line from a. m. to 12 p. Yn. on we€k days at half hour periods and front 7 fe. m. to 9 p. m. on Sundays. The street railway company prom ises to construct the line as soon as possible and assurance Is given that the line^ to the fair grounds will be In operation before the opening of the state fair. The street railway com pany has sufficient steel on the ground to complete the line to the fair and expects to be able to get sufficient wire for the overhead trolley. discontin ued.

This will start at Flaxton and run due west through Ward and Williams counties near and almost paralleling the Inter national boundary,line. This will pass through a country a part of which is already fettled up, and it will also render accessible the rich and fer tile land in the northern part of Ward and Williams counties which as yet is but sparsely settled. E. H. Probstfleld who made a trip through this section a short time ago is very enthusiastic over it.
