THE FARGO FORIJM AND DAILY REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY EVENING, MABCH 31, 1909. RELIEF FUND TO BE 0UAIL1MLE0 STEP8 ARE TAKEN BY FARGO FIRE DEPARTMENT TO REALIZE ON POSSIBILITIES HELD OUT BY LAW RECENTLY ENACTED— ANNUAL INCOME $1,600. Steps were taken yesterday after noon by the Fargo Are department to take full advantage of the possibilities held out by the firemen's relief law en acted at the late legislative session. City Attorney Resser, at the Instance of the local flre-fighters, drafted an application for articles of incorpora tion which last evening was forward ed to Secretary of State Blaisdell. The organisation is known as the Fargo Fire Department and Relief associa tion and its directors are to be Chief Sutherland, Lawrence F. Champion and Patrick H. Flynn. Get 1 Per Cent of Premiums. Through the action of the Fargo de partment in taking advantage of the new law the relief of disabled firemen and the women and children who are made widows and orphans by their death in the discharge of their duty, is no longer dependent upon charitable subscriptions, but is guaranteed an annual fund which will constantly in crease as the years roll. on. This fund will come from one main source, specified in the law recently enacted. Under the law of the state 2 per cent of the premiums on flre Insur ance paid the Insurance companies operating In Fargo is collected by the state and placed to the credit of the city, the law providing that such sum shall be used for flre department maintenance purposes. Under the firemen's relief law Just passed one half of this sum Is to be used for maintenance purposes by the depart ment and the other half is to go into the relief fund, when a proper organi zation has been affected for the pur pose of receiving and handling such fund. No time was lost, therefore, by the local firemen in organizing the as sociation. About $1,500 Annually. Last year the money available for flre department maintenance purposes through the collection by the state of 2 per cent of the premiums on flre in surance paid in this city, amounted to $2,600. This year, it is believed, the money from such a source will amount approximately to $3,000, making the annual income of the fund at the pres ent time about $1,500. The need of a guaranteed relief fund was brought forcibly to the attention of this city in the fall of 1907, when the J. I. Case Co.'s warehouse was burned to the ground and two firemen lost their lives in fighting to control the flames. One of the firemen left a widow and several children in desti tute circumstances. Charitable citi zens, however, came nobly to the aid of the stricken family and subscribed a substantial sum for their support. MILES 8TANDISH. Finest and mildest 10-cont cigar.

BECIARES CLARK SiAmmJU ML is A LH CM INSURGENT DEMOCRAT VIGOR OUSLY DEFENDS HIS VOTE ON AMENDMENT TO HOUSE RULES, Washington, March 21.—A break in the monotony of the tariff debate oc cured in the house of representatives when. .Mr. Moon (Tenn.,) one of the twenty-three whom the recent demo cratic caucus "disciplined" for "having voted with the republicans in the adoption of the Fitzgerald amendment to the rules defer ding his action in vigorous language. He scathingly de nounced the attitude toward him and his twenty-two colleagues by the min ority leader and the other democrats in the house, who, he said, had shown aji unspeakable Intolerance. He criti cised the democratic caucus resolu tions. Mr. Moon criticised the Clark amend ments which, he said, among other things called for the appointment of a "mongrel committee" of fifteen to name the committee of the house. He inquired, If, when the Fitzgerald reso lution was carried, Mr. Clark took ad vantage of the situation. Facing Mr. Clark, he said, "Rally your forces, and every democrat in this house will stand with them for the abrogation of the rules that are still obnoxious." Makes 8arcaatic Suggestion. Mr. Moon sarcastically suggested that those democrats who had pressed upon Mr. Clark a losing conflict might well give up their rights and power into his keeping. The caucus resolu tion he interpreted as an announce ment not to ober the law of the land. "In your desire to express your enmity to those of your own party who dis agreed with you in your hatred of the speaker." he said, "you declare yourself for a programme of lawless ness and revolutionary conduct In the house. "Are you in a conclave? Are you in the Black Hand or are you standing in the interest of a great constitu tional party, contendi: for the liber ty of the common people on the floor of the house of representatives?" He said the answer would be correct. "Mr. Clark told me I could not do it and I did not." He referred in this connection to "The m*rfhty power of a mock czar." The insurgent democrats and the republicans loudly applauded as Mr. Moon sat down. Those who spoke on the tariff were Messrs. James of Kentucky Cushman of Washington Kennedy of Ohio Gillette of Massachusetts Scott of Kansas and Peters of Massachusetts Dfdkema of Michigan and Hull of Teanesssee. "BILLS" H~VE THE CALL. "Jims" Can't Muster Enough to Make a 8Howing in Washington. Washington, March 31.—There wiM be no "Jim" club at the capital to run in opposition to President Taft's "Bill" club, despite the encouragement of James Schoolcraft Sherman, vice president of the United States. A count of noses has put the "Jim" bunch into a hopeless minority. In congress there ar^ forty-seven "Bills." while the "Jims" number only a meagre thirty-two. The first count disclosed thirty-three, but it was dis covered that the enumerator had in cluded the Hon. Ollie James of Ken tucky, in the list. Now the Hon. Ollie objects to having his surname muti lated in that fashion, and the "Jim' number slipped back to thirty-two. Even the addition of James Wilson out of the cabinet officials gave but little comfort to the "Jim-jammers..' The "Bills" had promptly retaliated by adding to their list of forty-seven the president of the United States and two members of the supreme court, William H. Moody and William R. Day.
