SIMMONS SAYS TRAVELING MEN ARE MADE, NOT NECES SARILY BORN AND GIVES QUALITIES THAT GO TO MAKE 8UCCESS—HAVE INFLUENCE. Pres. B. C. Simmons, of the Nation al Prosperity association. In speaking of commercial travelers, said: "You frequently see the statement that salesmen axe born—not made. My first trip on the road was made in January, 1859, and I have been selling goods ever since therefore, speaking from experience, I do not be lieve that salesman are born, neces sarily, but that they can be made from any "piece of material" which is hon est, faithful, earnest, true, intelligent and hard-working. The virtues of honesty, truth, good character, good habits and faithfulness must prevail with any man before he can ever claim rank to being a good salesman. "Selling goods at the present time is a proposition that is the most im portant of commercial life, and to my mind, of far greater importance than the buying or the administration of house responsibilities. A good sales man must have the capacity for mak ing friends that is the strongest ele ment that makes-for success in sales manship. The merchants of our country today, I am very happy to say, are as a rule themselves honest, upright, faithful, loyal, true and fair minded—they mean to do just right hence, they do not extend their friend ship to any salesman who is not pos sessed of the same good qualities or virtues but when a salesman gains their friendship, he then has placed himself In a position to have great Influence with them—influence that will be beneficial to the merchant, and which he must exercise to help them to prosper, if he would make them his friends, and If he would retain his influence with them for other good purposes in th% future. These sales men must necessarily be persevering and persistent. A "quitter" never gets anywhere or gets anything, but it 1b the man who "stays with" his job who lands his fish and succeeds. A good salesman is a good talker. Now, by that I do not mean to say that he is a great talker, or talks a great deal, but he knows how to talk and when to talk, and what to say he uses the most simple and direct language he has the power and facul ty of making other men talk but most of all, he has that great ac complishment—the ability to convince the man he is talking to. Naturally he is compelled to have convincing ways in order that he may be suc cessful in getting business. A sales man is an optimist—hoping always, and believing that he is going to d0 a good business in the next town. The traveling salesmen of the United States, in all lines of business, number about 400,000. That Is a tre mendous Influence. It is estimated that each traveling man talks, on an average, to five men a day. Think, what this means in publicity when directed by a common purpose. Who can talk more effectively than a trav eling man? His tongue speaks from a mind trained to convince. Intellect, tact, good nature and diplomacy are qualities which the traveling man cultivates six days in a week. It would be strange if he did not acquire the faculty of effective speech.** A PROVES EXPENSIVE RESTAURANT PROPRIETOR FINDS THAT IT DOES NOT PAY TO FLEECE MEMBERS OF THE TRAVELING FRATERNITY—ODD METHOD OF RETALIATION. G£8r** X. Tattle, a lunOfc counter proprietor of the little town of Harri son, Idaho, on the Northern Pacific, arrived in Seattle recently and put In several hours looking for two drum mers, who perpetrated on him what he considered an expensive Joke, says The Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Mr. Tuttle wants to find the two drummers, beg their pardon for what he did to them and call the .whole thing off. The abused man scouted around yesterday among the traveling men in an effort to see the two men, whom he has reason to remember. When interviewed, he explained the Incident as follows: "About three weeks ago a local pas senger train stopped at Harrison five minutes late, and as there is no din ing car on this train the passengers usually run across the street to any lunch counter and grab a bite in the seven minutes the train stops there. "On this particular day two men whom I took to be traveling men rushed in and called for something to eat, 'whatever you can' get the quick est.' I grabbed a can of beans and in a minute had them served. The regular price of the beans would have been IB cents, but the train started to pull out just then and I charged each of my customers B0 cents. They said nothing, for there wasn't time. About 3 o'clock that afternoon the station agent came over with a tele gram on which there was a charge of 35 cents. My wife was up in the mountains at a sanitarium and 1 thought the telegram was from her, a» I had previously received others. On opening it, however, I read these words: 'Dear George: On thinking the matter over we have concluded that you charged us too much for those beans. —Sd apd Bill.' "As I was still ahead of the game, I passed the matter up with a chuckle. About 6 o'clock, that evening, a boy came into my place and said that someone wanted me on the long dis tance telephone and wanted me t» pay the charges which were 60 cents. I paid them and on getting the con nection the conversation was some thing like this: "'Hello George that you? This ia AND THB FARGO I^ORTJM K \V- think ou charged us too' tmuch for those beans.' "I hung the receiver up without waiting for more. "Two days later an express package arrived at Harrison from Seattle. I was expecting one I had ordered some things from the coast. The charges were $6.35. "I didn't open the bundle until that afternoon and nearly fainted when I found it contained a nice assortment of broken brick, and this note: 'George, you know you charged us too much for those beans.* "A week later & big box of freight arrived from Seattle which cost me $16 to get It from the railroad. 1 looked the box over carefully before I accepted It, but finally satisfied my. self that It was the one I was expect ing. In the midst of a small wooden box in the midst of I should say 200 empty bean cans, was this message: 'George, you know you stung ua on those beans.' I haven't heard from them, to ten days, but I am expecting another mes sage. While in Seattle I thought I would look around for Ed and Bill here." TRAVELING MAN WEDS C. A. Lathrop and Mrs. EcKth M. Chapin Were Married in Crooks v ,• t°n Tuesday* evening at 7 o'clock, Mrs. Edith Mr. Chapin and Charleton A. Lathrop of St. Paul, were married at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. B.

Chase's Oipfmsnt rOUT A PORTLhFCELDi DAILY REPUBLICAN, 8ATTTRDAY EVENING, OCTOBEE COURT'S DECISION SUPREME COURT DECLARES LEG ISLATURE HAS POWER TO PRO VIDE FOR NOMINATIONS BY A DIRECT VOTE, BUT ABSOLUTE EQUALITY 18 NOT NECE88ARY. The decision of the supreme court of North Dakota in the actions In volving the validity of the 30 per cent clause of the primary election law, an account of which appeared in last evening's issue of The F6rum, has been received in Fargo and makrs very interesting reading* The sylla bus by the court, in both cases follows In full below: In the Supreme Court. Filed Oct. £, 1908. The State of North Dakota, ex rr!. E. R. Montgomery, Appellant, vp. Hans Anderson, as auditor of Grand Forks County, N. D., Respondent. 1. The legislature has the power to legislate on subjects not prohibited, either in express terms or by neces sary implication, by the constitution. 2. It is competent for the legislature to provide for the nomination ol party candidates for elective offices by a direct vote of the members of the dlff erent political parties at an election held for that purpose. 8. While the legislature has t)m power to provide for nominations by a direct vote and to prescribe rul^s and regulations for the conduct of primary elections and the government of political parties, such rules and regulations must be reasonable and operate on voters and candidates of the same class with substantial equal ity, but absolute equality in all things Is not a necessary requirement. 4. The fact that in the opinion of the court simpler, and perhaps more effectual or reasonable rules and regu lations might have been provided than the legislature did provide, will not alone Justify courts in holding the regulations made invalid. 5. Section 12 of chapter 109, laws of 1907, the primary election law reads as follows: "If the total vote cast for any party candidate or candidates for any office for which nominations are herein provided for shall equal less than 30 per cent of the total number of votes cast for secretary of state of the political party, he or they repre sented at the last general election, no -nomination shall be made in that party for such office, but If 30 per cent or more of such vote is cast and there is more than one candidate for any such office, the person receiving the highest number of votes shall be de clared the nominee of such party for such office provided, further, that where there is more than one person to be elected for the same office, the persons to the number to be elected receiving the highest number of votes cast for such office shall be declared the nominee* «C party for such offices." ,4 Held: (a.) iThat the 30 per cent require ment therein contained applies to county and district offices as well as to other offices. (b.) That under Its terms candi dates of a sub-division of the State for a local office must receive 30 per cent of the party vote of their party cast at the last general election for the candidate of such party for secre tary of state within such sub-division, or no nomination is made. 6. The 30 per cent requirement in said section is intended (a.) To prevent the nomination of candidates to represent a party by ac cident, or when the party did not in tend to make a nomination. (b.) To restrain the action of vot ers at primary elections within the parties to which they belong. (c.) To define and fix the number of votes necessary to constitute an expression of the party and to deter mine what is the act of a party as a party. 7. The 30 per cent requirement re lates to offices of which there is only one of a kind and while, in the opinion of the court, some other method might have been provided which was more simple and possibly more reasonable, to accomplish the purposes herein before referred to, this matter Is not as a regulation so unreasonable as to render said provision or requirement invalid, and it is accordingly, held, that when only one office of the same name is to be filled at an election, and candidates for nomination for such office at the. preceding primary election failed to receive 30 per cent of the party vote dsignated, no party nomination is made for such office. 8. Arguments as to the expediency and reasons why the provisions made may not be the most expedient, are properly addressed to the legislature and will not Justify this court, for the reason that the most expedient method has not been provided in hold ing the provision of the law in In question invalid.

Section 12, chapter 109, Laws of 1907, It being the Primary Election Law, reads: "12. Percentage ot Votes Required for Nomination—It the total vote cast for any party can didate or candidates for any office for which nominations are herein pro vided for shall equal less than 30 per cent of the total number of votes cast for secretary of state of the political party, he or they represented at the last general election, no nomination shall be made In that party for such office, but If 30 per cent or more of such vote Is cast and there Is more than one candidate for any such office, the person receiving the highest num ber of votes shall be declared the nominee of such party for such office provided, further, that where there is more than one person to be elected to the same office the persons to the number to be elected receiving the highest number of votes cast for such office shall be declared the nominees of the party for such office." Held: That the proviso limits the application of the 30 per cent rule, construed In State ex rel. Montgomery v. Anderson, to candidates for noml i-ation t: offices of which there is not m'-rc than on? of the same name to be filled at the succeeding election. 2. Under auch proviso, when more 8, lKfc.
