The proposed statute gives & right of action again at saloonkeepers to the wife and children of a nusband or father who fails to support his family, owing to the fact that he spends his wages for liquor. When the bill flrst made its ap pearance it was generally regarded as a "joker." but the author soon dis pelled this idea by enilsiing the co operation of several of his colleagues, and this put a new aspect on the measure. Mr. McGrath was formerly a resi dent of Carroll, Iowa. He says that there is such a law in that state and results have proved that II is practical WAS ORE STARTED STRANGE FEATURE CONNECTED WITH THE BURNING OF THE WIL80N HOUSE LAST NIGHT The presumption is that later th« thieves gained entrance to th' Wiiso*:' house and probably started the lire there with matches they wer using for the purpose of robbery.

Was there robbery and attempted arson in connection with a Are at the home of Ed Wilson, Second street and Second avenue south, Moorhead, this morning? The lire department was c&lled to the Wilson home this morning at 4:5o, and it required the best kind of fhv fighting to prevent the flames from gaining the mastery, but they were kept within the room where they or iginated «nd the onjy damage was a little scorching and the necessary water which was required to extin ^ulih th flames. A piano in the room .vas badly blistered and the furniture and decorations will have to be re placed. Probably $500 will cover all )t the less. The house Is owned by Magnuson Bros., as is the one next door, which they occupy. Suspicious features incident to the fire ar told in a statement which W. D. Magnuson makes. He says that when he and his wife reached home, after attending a party, about 3 o'clock this morning, he found that some one had gained entrance to his house. He found partly burned matches about the flrst floor rooms. From his wife's purse in their bed room had been taken money amount ing to about $20, and there was also found missing a good suit of clothes.

S., March 31.—Dr. Alex ander Graham 3^1's Aerial Experi ment association, which has been en gaged in experimental work with aeroplanes and tetrahedral kites for more than a year was formally dis banded here today. "Dr. Bell is more than satisfied with the success attainrc." said Mr. Curtlss yesterday. "He believes the experi mental work has accomplished prac tically all that was expected. The time has come, however, to- brancn out on broader lines and several aero planes will be built at once on the models of the successful machines that have been tried out in the last year." The association has spent $35,000 in its experiments, the greater part of which was contrlbv.ter by Mrs. Bell. With Dr. Bell and Mr. Curtlss at Baddeck are J. A. D. McCurdy. who designed the -Sllveir Da^r. and F. W. Baldwin, a young engineer from To ronto. 'rnese four mei comprise the association membership, but it was started with five, -th fifth member being, the late L'eutenant Self ridge, who was killed in the fall of Orville Wright's machine at Fort Meyer last summer. Dr. Bell was deeply grieved by this accident, and, although the Silver Dart was especially construted to carry two men, Dr. Bell has refused to permit a trial of th- aeroplane with a second man. With the disband ment of the association, however, it is possible that a flight of the machine with two men will be made in the near future at Hammondsr ort. to/ ii!?
