who had the Winnipeg team last sea
son. "Spike" has played ball In the
northwest for years and has always
been popular with the local fans. In

The Athletics are veteran" basket

Old winter Js once more on his good
behavior. After ruling very despotic
ally' and taxing the patience of the
people of the northwest to the extreme
point, he has decided to be a little less
harsh for a few days. As a result the
weather has been considerably moder
ated. Yesterday the official thermom
eter kept by Observer Gnasse regis
tered 2 below, while today It was a
little colder early In the morning, the
record at 7 a. m. being 12 below. But
even at that the air seemed balmy com
pared with the very frigid atmosphere
which Fargoans have been enjoying
of late and *is the sun mounted higher
in the heavens the day ..grew rapidly
Still more good news' is in store,
for a warm wave is said to be on the
way from the west which will make
Mr. Mercury exert himself in climbing
the' ladder. The Red river valley was
today the coldest district in the north
•"weat, it being warmer both east and
west of it. By tomorrow the warm
wave will have reached here and while
Observer Grasse is making no definite
promises he says he would not be sur
prised to see the mercury reach 20
above tomorrow morning.
Best of all no blizzards have been
sighted and everybody Is hoping that
the atmosphere will be warm enough
to soften the snow an£ put on the
much-desired crust, which will prevent
its drifting and blocking the railroads
"every time a strong wind rises.
Inter-Society Declamatory Ceetest

The Forum: This winter and snow
recalls a winter long ago in Minne
sota when St. Paul and Minneapolis
Were shut off from the outside world
several days, and the citizens in the
country shut out from provisions and
fuel many taking up floors, down par
titions and using their furniture for
fuel to keep from freezing when
country stores got rid of their canned
merchandise and all old stock ol eat
ables. Very many threatened to leave
Minnesota as a state unworthty of use
—many of whom have since made it
their home and accumulated good for
tunes. When warm spring came, a
bumper crop in the harvest season
revolutionized their minds. We will be
likely to obtain similar results here,
there being almost no frost in the

FargO-SDUthwestem branch off*1^Ps
the Northern Pacific is once more open
for traffic, and the' citizens of Daven
port, Leonard, Sheldoii, Buttzville,
Verona and Lisbon and the other
towns along the line are again able to
communicate wtth the otitsid^ world
by .'some other means than telegraph
and telephone wires. A train arrived
in Fargo from Lisbon at 10:40 last
night bearing a number of passenger
who had long been waitJVig for an op
portunity to journey to Fargo and oth
er places, and this morning at "9:30 a
mixed train consisting of a passenger,
mail and express caK ah'd ten freight
cars left for point's along the south
western. The box .cars, were loaded
with fuel and other necessities which
are much needed at the various placers
and will tend to relieve the threatened
fuel famine along, the line.
This is the first train over the south
western in three .weeks with the ex
ception of the one which left here Fri
day and has been snowed in ever since,
and its arlval will be hailed witht de
light by th© people en route.
The Aneta train which departed
Monday morning, returned to Fargo
today, having succeeded in bucking it.s
way through the snow drifts to Aneta
and back. If the weather conditions
are favorable it will probably leave on
time tomorrow morning.
Determined to clear up the Cassel
ton branch, the local railroad offi
cials started a second snow bucking
outfit over the line today. It is hoped
to have it open for traffic within a
day or two.
Considerable work is being done on
the Jamestown-Northern branch of
the Northern Pacific and trains will
probably be running over It before the
week is ended, unless there is another

the Aneta branch, got within four
teen miles of their homes, and could
lo no farther on the train' and driv
ing was too perilous, there being very
Jeep snow and no broken roads.
Considerable interest Is centered
lust now In S. B. No. 4, an act relating
to the qualifications of state, county
md city officers, and which has passed
the upper branch by a vote of 36 in
the affirmative and 4 in the negative.
The supporters of the measure ^all at
tention to the fact that there are dual
afflcer troubles at Devils Lake, Wah
peton, Fargo, Dickinson, Mandan and
fiere at Bismarck. If the bill becomes
law it will affect the mayor, state's
attorney, county judge, sheriff, mem
bers of the school board and two coun
ty commissioners in Bismarck and
Burleigh county. At Dickinson the
county auditor and city treasurer .will
jfeel Us weight. The principal object
Is to keep conflicting officers off the
'boards of equalization and the review
ing of their own work in that particu
lar. ..
There Is Just one feature, which a
number of members want to guard
against, and that is, they don't want
to eliminate the public usefulness of
some men in small localities where
there is so often a paucity of public
spirited men. In so many places are
there found perhaps one or two good
men who are jewels, perhaps on the
council and also on the board of edu
cation, men who give municipal af
fairs and education careful study, en
iJoy fully the confidence of the people,
the latter want them there and they
the and the
work and things go along smoothly.
The text of the bill as amended and
passed the senate. Jan. 25, is as fol
lows, and Is now before the house in
that form:
A bill for an act relating to the
qualifications of all state, county and
city elective officers.

treasurer, superintendent of schools,
coroner, surveyor or constable.

The coming biographical issue of
The North Dakota Magazine, will be
one of peculiar interest and Value. It
will contain a sketch of every senator,
and representative, also every state
officer. The book will display to the
world just what the bone and sinew.of
the state of North Dakota is made up
of—it will show the starting point of
the public men of the state and what
they have grown to and how. Each
biography is just a plain unembellished
story of the life of the men which go
to make up the present state govern
ment—an absolute absence of anything
of the character of boost. It will be
strange if there is not an extraordi
nary demand for thitf issue at the
magazine, t'or some writers It will be
a valuable textbook.

Kenmare. N. D., Feb. The
Forum: We have noticed in several
papers of the state reference to one
W. B. Walker as appearing to be in
sane, and in The Forum of the 30th
He is spoken of as being "at the head of
the Kenmare school some years ago,
and was recognized as an educator of
ability." A few years ago he was em
ployed in our school here, but only
taugh^ a short time, as he showed
then that he was wrong mentally. H«#
could not control himself and got into
all kinds of trouble with the pupils
and the parents, going so far as buy
ing a revolver and threatening to shoot
some of them, and he was dismissed
from the school by the school board.
Kenmare has fully appreciated its

good things of this earth here, at its
own door, plenty" of the best coal in the

Shows Wisdom in Giving -the

A striking point Was made fh the
repOrt of the building committer to
the board of education at Its mw,ting'
last evening in regard to the new fan
system, whibh was installed in the new
eight-room buildings. FfgUPtfa Vt-re
submitted as follows:
Roosevelt school^ fiv* mflOtha' fuel,
$230.65 fan system.
Hawthorn school, five J^Mitha* fuel,
$286.46 fan system.
Longfellow school, five months* ftu'l,
$333.65 gravity system.
Lincoln school, five months' fuel,
$401.47, gravity systems
To the far\ system, expense should
be added about $12 per month or $60
for the period covered for electric
power to run the fans, in each school.
It was only after considerable delib
eration that the building committee
decided in favor of the fan system in
the new eight-room buildings. The
contract was let to the Fargo Plumb
ihg & Heating Co. and shows the gooti
judgment of the committee in giving
the fan system a trial and thus saving
the taxpayers considerable in the item
of fuel.and the experience
doubt be of benefit to others,
