The street railway people •t i v beginning to wonder now just what ":idition the road bed is in on the St. John's hospital loop. Manager Mown declares that the results of a il""d are never twice alike and no pre diction can be made as to the con ditions his track force will hftve to contend with when the track comes to be disclosed. At Grand Forks two or three Indus tries have been put out of business on account of the high water, the Dinnie cement works and one of the foun dries, and in a few hours some of the .stores in the business center expect trouble. The only industry put out of business In Fargo was the waterworks, but they were quickly supplemented by a reserve pump, assistance from Moor head and the keeping at work of the large fire engine. The receding of the flood wafer from the big depression in Island park, along Seventh street south, is becom ing very noticcable. If the tennis play ers of the Y. M. C. A. are also good .swimmers they can now use their ten nis courts as the water has left that part of the park, but there is consid erable left between the road and the courts. To the great relief of the Are de partment the main plant of the water works is agftin in operation. Superin tendent Craig and his force were able to start the iires yesterday afternoon, about 3 o'clock, and an hour or two afterwards there was the regular nor mal pressure through all of the mains. The disturbed condition at the main plant of the city water department has been the reason for considerable con cern in the fire department, and dur ing the past two weeks there has been SHFR1FF HAS AUTlliin NEW LAW RELATIVE TO INSPEC TION OF WEIGHTS IS NOW IN EFFECT, HE SHERIFF OF EACH COMNTY BEING MADE INSPEC TOR* Contrary to expectation there is an emergency clause attached to the new Ixw relating,to inspection of weights and measures, so that it is in effect now.

Heavy 8now Falls During the Aftftf nooh. Winter is with us again today. It is winter of a belated and April charac ter, however. Early this morning the snow began to fall and soon had cov ered the ground with a thin white mantle. From 8 a. m. until about noon there was a surcease in the fall. Then the beautiful began to come down apain, this time accompanied by a high wind which gave it all tho ap pearance of a blizzard. The temperature, however, was too high for a genuine blizzard and the snow melted almost as fast as it fell. Observer Grasse promises warmer weather tonight and predicts that the young winter will not last, but that the snow will be turned to rain. Quarter Section on Easy Terms.

To say the least, the conditions have been critical, for nq matter how badly water may hav e e n w a n e o i e u o s e s ThS i wbuld have been difficult to secutv anything like the required pressure It is stated that this subject will be i given consideration by the lire and water committee of the city council and some action taken to better meet •such 'contingencies another year there may be a recurrence of high wa ter next year, and perhaps for two or three years in succession. y hose connections -with the Moorliead waterworks plant, which have been great assistance during the emergency, have been discontinued. While the pressure from all of the temporary sources have not been all that was desired at all times, still everybody was supplied, both for pri vate and manufacturing purposes. The sisters ot' St. John'g hospital ^are very glad to get their heating plant again In commission. Property owners along Seventh street south, especially those who have had their sidewalks destroyed by the rushing high water, are expressing some indignation at the prospect of having to relay their respective walks. The word comes from the city hall that the city will not do the replacing of the walks. As the high water goes down the walks are disclosed in all sorts of shapes, one stretch near Third avenue has been lifted so that it- re sembles a bridge. Some sections of the walk have been carried away en tirely. The opinion prevails that the replacing of the walk ought to come under the general expenses of the city. Early this morning it was stated that about daybreak the water was falling at the rate of two inches an hour font a time," but it only lasted an hour or two. IN THE COUNTY COURT Guardianship of W. C.
