This must be done If Fargo is going to continue to grow. .. i_ The proposal of the NorthenuPii clflc to Increase the capital stock from $155,000,000 to $$250,000,000 is an evidence of how rapidly the northwest is building up, as these funds are asked for to Improve conditions and give additional facilities. It is im perative to have the double* tracking completed as soon as possible, and a great increase of rolling stock is also necessary. i^The Lodge resolution concern ing the abuses in the Congo would not seem meddling with European* af fairs. It is time this subject was in vestigated if thire is no truth in the rumors, justice can be done to those who have been reviled. If the report.^ are true, It is time that something was done. to put an end to the dis grace, and public sentiment will do this—without the necessity of war. Hor^. Thomas E. Watson, in the opening number of Watson's Jeffer sunlan Magazine, flays Colonel Mann of Town-Topics to a finish. It will recalled that the colonel secured a Igment against Watson's Magazine New York and froze out the editor, io has started a new magazine to ce the place of the original, which s published in the metropolis. Mr. itson is decidedly radical, but no 3 will question his honesty and up htness, and he seems to have the it of the present controversy. Statistics have recently appeared owing that the Northern Central lroad spends the highest ratio of :nings for operating expenses, tl uount being $84.27 out of each $10* th the Michigan Central it is $81.03 w York Central, $69.65 Burlington, i.40 Milwaukee, $65.46 Northern ciflc, $50.80 Great Northern, .42 and Soo is the lowest of all i systems, being just an even $!* v- the past year.

The public has some rights as well as the stockholders of the roads. The Journal has a wry inter esting story on "Honest" John Burko more entertaining than many novels and just about as DMtf the facts, in many particulars. It is' a somewhat encouraging sign of the times when some of th" men who have great fortunes favr either an Income or an inheritance tux. Some legislation of this kind is abso lutely necessal-y in order to relieve those of moderate means and the very poor of the burdens which are now imposed upon them. ^President Roosevelt's message on Panama bubbles over with the enthu siasm which he has imbibed concern ing this enterprise. He goes for the knockers and asks for loyal support to the men who are laboring on this en terprise and for national renown in the same spirit and with the same efficiency that the men of the army and navy work in time of war.

Philadelphia Record: Beer, whis- ,, ky and tobacco have been consumed so freely that the internal revenue for Per,y the last fiscal yeaV ran about $15,000,- 000 above that of the year before and $8,000,000 above the estimates made last fall, when one-third of the year, had passed. During the first" quarter, ,C. of the current fiscal year the receipts, went more than $4,500,000 above those of the corresponding quarter In the lapt year and the commissioner estimates' that, although the tax is about to be Washburn. Senator Johnson and Mayor Klein are spending the week in Minneapolis. Some of our citizens have been dis appointed in the Soo train this week, as it has been leaving on time and also leaving some would-be travelers. The price of "baching" has increased so much the past few months, that "bachelor maids" and bachelors are go ing to form co-partnerships for life in the near future. Hon. 8. A. Barton of Wilton, one of McLean county's first commissioners, was in our city yesterday. Mr. Barton is over 75 years of age, but is as young and spry as a man of half that age. Frank Hall, who was seriously in jured while skating jxear the island, is slowly recovering. Hon. Joseph Mann of Washburn is being groomed for the position of war Jen of the state penitentiary. The only fault with Joseph is, that he has al ways been a democrat and a hard worker for the party. All have to ad mit that he would fill any position with honor to himself and credit to his friends. John Wratchen, the pugilist, la now clerk in the Washburn pool hall. John will certainly settle all disputes that may arise over games. Some of the acquaintances of Rev. Dougherty may be surprised to learn that he was killed in a fight with mounted police in Canada, near a place called Aska'. Dougherty was a member of a gang of rustlers that op erated in McLean county for several years and was forced to leave the ounty between two days. A. N. Sutton was sojourning in Gar rison for several days this weefc. Superintendent Stockwell paid our city a visit between trains last Mon day. Game Warden Joseph Taylor has been on the sick list for a few days, but is now on the mend. Joe has made a good game warden and many of his friends, republicans, as well as demo rats, would like to see him one of the state game wardens. He is one of the oldest democrats in the state. A one-legged man gave an exhibi tion of skating in the Washburn hall Wednesday night. The attraction caus ed some of the easy ones to donate a half dollar. Some oif the resubmissionists of Washburn believe it would be just as well to have four saloons as to lave the four blind pigs that are running within one block of the state's attor ney's office.

Philadelphia Ledger: The scientist had invaded the jungle and conquered the mtmkey language. "And now that you have acquired dur lingo," said the head monkey, "have you any information of value to convey to us?" Of course, the scientist, nonplused, had to sneak back to civilization. Returns from Small Capital. Leslie's Weekly: Many of the great mines of the west were, devel oped by men who had comparatively little capital. The Aspen, which has yielded about $22,000,000, pave its for tunate lessee $467,000 in forty-five days. He had spent only $3,000 in opening it. The Hecla of Burke, Idaho, was opened by six dairymen, who a few weeks ago refused$2,670, 000 for it. Ex-Senator Thomas Kearns, general manager of the Silver King, which has paid $10,505,000 in dividends, says that it cost $38,000 to put the property on a paying basis He said that his partners had noth ing but their wages and savings vfrom them when they b^gan to develop the mine. Ml -f| OranAft* N. D., Dec. ff*fhe Forum: James Garrett and Cliff Hul bert of Fargo were among the visitors in Grandin over Sunday. Both the Methodist and the Presby terian church societies are busy with preparations for elaborate Christmas entertainments at their churches, the distribution of presents from the trees to take place on the evening of Dec 24. Some excellent music and singing is promised and a very enjoyable time is looked forward to. With the coming of the Great North ern steel crew In a few days, the new railroad bridge over the Elm river at this point will soon be completed. This takes the place of an inferior wooden structure and is one of many new ones along the main line that have been under construction the past year. It has four substantial stone piers. Funeral services over the remains of the infant son of Mr. and Mrs. John Garrett were held yesterday in the M. EL church. It is understood that the mother is seriously ill at ^ie of the Fargo hospitals, but hopes are enter tained for her early removal to her home here. Mrs. W. E.

NATIONAl CAPITAl GOSSIP They have a new way of pro nouncing Bellamy Storer's first name up at the capitol. They call him "Blame Me" Storer. Some Orange politicians came through the city today and one of them told a story about Assemblyman W. George Hastings of Newburg/who represented former Governor Odell's district. Hastings had to make a speech at a labor picnic during the campaign and he was hard put to it for the right kind of a topic to talk on. He wrote several speeches, but finally decided he would talk to the labor men on that evergreen proposition, Own Your "Own Homes, figuring that that was emin ently safe from any political angle that might be applied to It. After he got back from tin meeting his mother said: "Did you make a speech, Geofge?" "Yes, mother." "What was the tonic?" "Own Your Own Home." ."Excellent," exclaimed his mother. "Excellent especially coming from you, who live in a flat." "Of course," said Col. J. W. Sevely of Muskogee, I. T., "more depends on the viewpoint than we admit. Now there was Col. Barnesdale of Pittsburg, who was walking around our^city of Mus kogee and looking it over. He met an old negro woman, stopped her and said: 'Auntie, how many people are there In Muskogee?' 'Well, massa,' she replied, 'I reckon they's about 25,000, includin' the white folks.'" John Thomas Brady got In tonight from St. Louis. John Thomas stopped a little while in Pittsburg on his way here. "I heard some of them guys out there talking about getting a coat-of arms," he said. "Now, take it from me that the only right thing for most of this bunch in the way of a coat-of arms would be a set of burglar's tools properly displayed." 4»punging and Bath Robes. A/ L.
