One of the most proclaimed obJe^-f
tions to the proposed charter amend
ment, providing for the paving of
Front street and other streets, next
spring, is the paving of the block on
Front street between Eighth and
Ninth streets, the objectors claiming
that there was an item of $10,000 back
taxes long past du$ far former, pav-
were explained. It was explained that
of the twenty-four lots between
Eighth and Ninth streets, nine had
signed to pay cash when the paving
was done. Upon three others there
were no delinquent taxes and they
are owned by parties, who, it .was,
declared, would pay. Six lots are^
owned by the Great Northern railway,?
and the general opinion was that they41
would pay the $1,200 or $1,500 requir
ed, considering the fact that the Nor
thern Pacific was putting up about^
$9,000. Five lots were shown to have
delinquent taxes against them, and
four to have assessments for the old
paving unpaid. The total bf these,
without penalty and interest, was fig
ured to amount to $1,815, from the
auditor's statement submitted, and as
to the interest and penalties the city
loses nothing, since the penalty and in
terest on deliquent taxes goes to the
county. It was further stated that of
the original tax, the county and state
are interested in a portion of it, so
that the loss to the city would figure
about $1,500, as against 410,000 which
was represented to be the loaa.
As to another objection, that the
passage of the amendment would r«
ard itll. other public improvements,
such a#.the building of lateral sewers,
etc., it was stated that this provision
was put in by the bharter ^ommlsslon,
to protect the owners of small homes,
as well as larger ones, by keeping the
city debt withlfj thf legal limit. It
was also figured that it would delay
improvements for but ow year.

MARSHALL OIL CIJ
OOOliES NO FEES
STORY PUBLISHED fN MORNING
PAPER IN FARGO TO EFFECT
THAT MARSHALL COMPANY
HAD BEEN CAUGHT TRYING TO
EVADE FEES IS MISSTATEMENT
Under startling caption this morn
ing, the democratic morning paper
prints a story about the alleged eva
sion of fees due in Minnesota, by the
Marshall Oil Co., Fargo, for fh« In
spection of oils In the .former state
and that $718 had been wrung out of
the Marshall people by the alertness
of a Moorhead deputy inspector.
Manager MoCaw of the Marshall Oil
Co. of Fargo informs The Forum that
there is not an atom of truth in the
report and that the paper fn question
has badly crossed wires on the sub
ject, that his company meets all de
mands of the Minnesota oil inspector
promptly and there has never been a
disposition to dodge fees and if ther$
has been any oversights they are ig
norant of the fact,
The Moorhead deputy is Editor Me
lander of The Citizen and to The For
um this afternoon, he said:
"The story In that Fatgo morning
paper is all 'Greek' to me and I have
not" been 'wise' or 'unwise.' As far as
I know the Marshall -people have not
subjected themselves to- any com
plains by State Inspector McEweri.
Somebody has evidently been dream
ing, or else has been imposed upon. I
know nothing whatever of 7$7 barrels
of oil slipping Into Minnesota for sale
in- this distrinct I inspect certain
tanks belonging to the Marshall oil
Co. once a month and up to date I
have been paid my fees through the
regular source promptly."

SPECIAL MCETlNp OF JAMES
TOWN HOSPITAL BOARD
Jamqrtown, 1. D., Dec.
was a 8p£ciaf meeting of the state
hospital board yesterday at which all
members wore present. .Rlans for the
institution improvement* ind to meet
the new demands that will be made
during the coming year were dis
cussed at some length. It is the de
sire of the trustees to secure an ap
propriation from the legislature to
complete the other half of the violent
ward building, first half of which waa
built last summer, but remains un
occupied and unused. The matetr of
a septic t^.nk to care for the sewerage
of the institution will also be necessary
as the present manner of disposing of
the same in the river south of that
institution cannot long be continued.
A properly constructed tank for this
purpose will cost about $5,000.
It is also necessary to have a house
separate from the asylum ward build
ings for the use of the employes and
farm hands engaged in work at the
institution. A "building where such
employes can be boarded and remain
apart from the patients will, be a
saving in time, and something that
is quite necessary.
It Is intended to improve the

sent to Governor Burke protesting
against an expense, in taxation which
they claim makes them appear ridi
The petition, which has been signed
by 300 priests of the diocese of Fargo,
and sent to Bishop Shanley, who In
turn forwarded It to the governor, is as Box 418, Fargo.
We, your petitioners, are the Catho
lic priests of your diocese, which em

holy religion. We recognize the vast
work you have done In this state dur
ing the past nineteen years. Many of
us have received from you our priestly
ordination, and all of us lovingly ac
knowledge you to be our chief pastor.
If we now come to you with a pe
tition, believe u/*, It Is solely because
we want to Strengthen your arms
in your battle for truth aAd llglit—not
to find fault with the successful work
you have dohe.
With all due respect, we, your
priests, therefore lay before you the

Fourth. The Catholics of this state
pay heavy taxes. In many instances
Catholics are paying a double tax for
conscience sake,—the state tax and
the church tax for education. They'
pay both taxes cheerfully and when
they use the state schools they Ought
not to lie insulted.
Insult to CatholioS.
Fifth. The text book «on the History
of Pedagogy used in our state normal
schools is an insult to every Catholic.
Comparye, Its authdr^. was a hater of
the Catholic church, and of the man
who translated it from the French or
iginal, Payne of the University of
Michigan, not much better can be said.
Wo desire to protest against the
use of Comparye's book ia our.
state schools at the expense of our
Catholics.' We a#yrrjt watit our chil
dren to learn that the unutterably dirty
Rabelais (Compary* pp.' 91-10&), the
very dirty Montaigne (Comparye pfc.
101-111), and the unspeakable Jean
Jacques Rousseau (Comparye pp. 27,
36, 38. 87. 98, 110, 126, 171* 196, 197,
198, 202, 209, 210, 278-310, S32-337, 348,
363, 368, 415, 426. 442,448. 481. 486, 553),
are great educators of youth. Nor do
we want to have our Catholics pay for
such information as this. "The truth
is that the Jesuits neither desire nor
love the Instruction of the people^'
(Comparye pp, 148.) "In all things
the Jesuits are the enemies of pro
gress. Intolerant of everything new
they would arrest the progress of the
human mind §.nd make It Immovable."
(Comparye pp. 145.)
Sixth. We belleve/that action should
be taken also by the legislature of
North Dakota to suppress Volume I
of the Collections of the State Histor
