Srm, fhat the municipal election Is sver, Farjsoan* can devote their time to something else. Aside frowi their pri vate business—there are many thing* that should attract their attention. One crying n**A Is a reorganisation Of the Fargo Commercial club. A few public spirited citisens have worked strenuously to make the club a sue oass. Many splendid results have been attained. That greater things can be accomplished with more intelligent and enthusiastic co-operation goes without •aying. Help the organisation along, sot only with your membership and moral support—but become an active toUStler for the city. The time is now ripe for many new enterprises in Fargo. This city is to day more widely advertised than any place Its sise In the world. It presents great opportunities for Investors, for »ew enterprises. The proper effort on tlie part of its residents will insure the •4ditlon of thousands of people to the population and hundreds of thousands mi dollars in Investments.

The New York Journal of Commerce comments as follows on a labor union Injury case which seems without a Wmedy under the lsw: Judge Xoyes of the United States circuit court of appeals, in handing down a decision refusing an Injunction against the enforcement of certain clauses of an agreement between the Mason Builders association and the bricklayers' unions, says "the com plainant injured but has no remedy," which seems to contradict the familiar saying hat under civilised law there can be no wrong without a remedy. The complainant is a tireprooflng com pany, which is excluded from any chance of installing its material in any building in this city on account of an agreement between the mason build ers' and the bricklayers' unions, which requires the former to include in their contracts all flreprooflng in floors, par titions and roofing, as well as all brick work, and forbids them to "lump or sublet the Installation if the labor «n connection therewith is bricklayers' work as recognised by the trade, the Kien employed upon the construction Of the walls to be given the preference." Another clause of the agreement de Clares that "no member of the brick layers' unions shall work for anyone not complying with all the rules and regulations herein agreed to." The association does not Include all thr mason builders, but the unions do include practically all the bricklayers In the city, and the result of this agree m*nt is that the flreprooflng company, which supplies and installs a hollow brick or tile material, can get no con tracts for supplying and installing its material, however much owners or con tracting builders may desire it or whatrver advantage or economy might bo gained by it. The company is sim ply shut out of this market by a pri vfctr apr^emer.t between an assorisition of builders and certain labor unions. Even a butldor who does not belong to the association cannot avail himself of the flreprooflng companv's work be eau.ie the bricklayer.® would then rs» fU*e to work for him at all. Judge Noyt» says that even if such as agreement is to bo construed as crcat »s a monopoly or heins In re straint of trade or opposed to public polity, it is merely invalid and unen forceable as between the parties. The law "takes them as it finds them, and as it finds them it leaves them." •1Mjil .wmmmmm sthar words, It cannot Interfere with successful trial «f their voluntary enforcement by the parties to them. Zt is not easy to see how such a case comes to be in a United States court, but In regard to the allegation that the agreement is in violation of the state law against mon opolies in the manufacture, production or sale of "any articlo way roasted The Forum for criticising Gov ernor Burke for vetoing the appropria tion for the establishment of a cream ery at the A. C. If the Bathgate but termaking establishment is puch a good thing—why not give the boys of the state an opportunity to learn the busi ness so more can be started The Forum believes—with Editor-Oil In spector Willson—that creameries are great things—and Is lorry that Gov ernor Burke did not have the interests of the farmers sufficiently at heart to take the same view of their Importance that his oil inspector holds. Vf The election business. Savannah, later. or commodity of common use," the judge says "it may well be doubted whether a com bination of employers and employes In the building trade could a mon opoly." "It cannot be denied." he further says, "that the complainant has ground for complaining." It Is prevented from engaging "in a lawful and legitimate business in a lawful and legitimate way." Its right is Interfered with, but "the law affords no remedy because such Interference is only Incidental to the exercise by the defendants of their own right to contract for their own benefit." The law "could only make it possible for the complainant to do business in the it chooses by com pelling the defendants to do business in the way they do not choose. But when equal rights clash the law can not interfere." If that view is sound there would see into be something the matter with the law and the remedy needs to be appMed there. There is one point about which there can be no doubt. An agreement of the kind that has been made between these buildera and these bricklayers Is injurious to the rights of others and opposed to public policy, and they should be con demned as unworthy of a civilized community. In our opinion their ex istence oURht for that reason to be un lawful. and the rights of others and the interest of the public should be protected agr.lnst them. FORUM SPECIAL ARTICLtS. The Forum is planning a series of articles on the educational, financial, commercial, religious, social, manufac turing and other advantages of Fargo. An effort will be made to call attentkm to some of the many good things that Fargo possesses advantages that should prove attractive to prospective Investor and homeseeker—and help Fargoans f*el a greater pride in their home city. In addition to these ajtlcles The Forum will also take up some matters tributary to Ffcrgo—especially in the way of nature beauty spots, summer resorts, development work and other things that will be of interest to Its readers. OIL INSPECTOR MIXED. Stats Oil Inspector Willson owes his appointment to Governor Burke and naturally wants to show his apprecia tion. This led him into making an egregious blunder in the last issue of his Bathgate Pink Paper. In his lead editorial Editor Willson paid a high tribute to the Bathgate creamery—re cited its advantages to the farmers and the country—and things like that. In the very next article he ridiculed and is -for or "History Is mads in the daytime."

Best Trestmsnt for Co Ids. "Most ordinary colds will yield to the simplest treatment," says the Chicago Tribune, "fnoderatlve laxatives, hot foot baths, a free perspiration and an avoidance of exposure to cold and wet after treatment." While this treatment Is simple, it requires considerable trouble, and the one adopting it must remain in doors for a day or two, or a fresh cold is almost sure to be con tracted. and In many instances pneu* monia follows. Is it not better to pin your faith to an old reliable prepara tion like Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, that Is famous for its cures of colds and can always be depended upon? For sale by aM dealers, Rugby Optimist: The report of the legislative "smelling" committee has at last been handed In. The report is too long to admit of publication in its en tirety by this paper, but succinctly stated, grievous faults have been ex posed in nearly all of the state offices, including the offices of secretary of state, state treasurer, superintendent of public instruction, and commissioner of agriculture and labor. Regarding the secretary of state, however, the re port says, in conclusion: "We have checked up all monies received by the secretary of state for the biennial period ending June 30, 1908, and And that the correct amount has been cov ered into the state treasury." The main trouble in the secretary of state's office seems to be the habit of paying a rather high price for supplies. In conclusion the committee compli ments the secretary for the decided re forms that have been instituted in the keeping of the records of sxipplles fur nished the state, since he has had charge of the office. As to the office of superintendent of public instruction, the committee re ports in detail as to the amount of fees received, and it appears that Su perintendent Stockwell has in his pos session something over 15,000 belong ing to the state, which he has collected In fees ar.d failed to turn over to the treasurer, which He claims belongs to him as a part of the emoluments of the office. Th^ committee, however, quotes the following: "Section 84 of the constitution of North Dakota, pro vides that the salaries of governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, auditor, treasurer, superintendent of public instruction, commissioner of In surance. commissioners of railroads, and attorney general shall not be in creased or diminished during the period for which they shall have been elected, and all fees and profits arising from any of the said offices shall be covered into the state treasury." The commit tee fails to express its opinion as to the culpability of Mr. Stockwell, ap parently leaving It to those who read the report to form their own opinion. In view of the fact, however, that the constitution, as above quoted, express ly provides that the salaries of the above named offlc?rs be fixed by law and shall not be raised or lowered during -the period for which they were elected, it is hard to understand where Stockwell bases his authority for this outrageous fee-grab, out of which he has paid the expenses of his wife and personal friends, as well as purchased "Stockwell medals" for oratorical and other educational contests. The su perintendent, however, feels that the bare disclosure of the figures to the public calls for some sort of an ex planation, and makes quite a lengthy statement In defense of his action. Among other things, he states that certain checks issued by himself in 1903 and 1904 canndt be found, al though he has looked carefully in his desk at Grafton for the same. He also says that "Mrs. W. L. Stockwell has read continuously since the March, 1903 examinations, etc.." and that "her compensation was taken care of by me. and I am not now able to ,say what checks were given to her for reading services and what for general house hold expenses." Further he says: "It Is a matter of sincere regret that a better accounting cannot b? made now. however what Is past is gone. We shall welcome any adjudication which may settle for all time this question." way maliciously stated that Mr. Wheelock had said he did not want the place.

Lounsberry's Washington Letter Washington, March! tl.—To The Forum: There is a decided change in handling land matters sinoe the new administration has taken the hefm. One thing that strikes me as being of the greatest importance is a* disposi tion ot do exact Justice to persons en tering public lands, while holding all to a strict compliance with the law. There was a time, not very remote, when an agent sent into the field to Investigate was expected to make cas es. and if he made favorable reports in tco many cases his services in the field were dispensed with. Agents are now Instructed to report the facts exactly as they are, and that their standing will not depend upon the number of unfavorable reports they make. All the entries in JNorth Dakota suspended on account of coal have now been restored to the channel lead ing to patent, excepting those in the folowing towns: In Wllllston district: town 152, range 96 towns 163. 164, and 166, range 100 and towns 154 and 165, range 101. In the Dickinson and Bismarck districts: towns 140, 141 and 142, range 101 towns 136, 137, 139, 140, 141 and 142, range 102 towns 139 and 140, range 108 towns 183, 134, 135, 136, 139 and 140, range 104, and towns 133 and 135, range 105. In these towns the burden l€ on the gov ernment to show that the lands are moire valuable for cOal than for agri cultural purposes, and an inspection of each claim may be necessary in these towns before the entry can pass the patent. If they are in fact chief ly valuable for coal they should be entered under coal land laws. Other wise the nearly two million acres withdrawn from the market have been restored. While showing liberality in that re spect the enforcement of the law In relation to commuted entries have be come very strict. Actual residence now means personal presence on the land for practically the whole period required. No more counting service as clerks in a postoffice, railway mail carriers, or other official positions as residence upon the land in commuted homesteads goes, nor does prolonged absences teaching school or "working to make a living." These things may go on a five year proof, unless ab sence became the rule, but to com mute now Tequires fourteen months presence upon the land. A Far go par ty recently proved up showing that his wife refused to live with nim on the land that he lived on the land "as much as he could that his duties called him away, traveling in Minne sota and North Dakato, and he could not be on the land more than once a month In summer and not at all in winter. He was really no better off than the man who was absent on short business trips, not explaining that his short business trips were from Duluth, where his family resided, in stead of from his claim near Harvey which he never visited but three times. The craze for acquiring land under the timber and stone act Is now over. The new regulations now require the timebr to be appraised and those pur chasing must pay the full value of the timber. No more land tor $2.50 per acre with timber worth $2,000 to $5,000 per quarter section. Uncle -(Samuel has certainly killed the goose that laid the golden egg for the lum bermen. but he waited entirely too long. And the coal lands, in the coal states, are no longer sold at $10 to $20 per acre, as before, regardless of the value of the coal. They are ex amined, and classified, qnd appraised according to the value of the coal de posits. With Mr. Ballinger secretary of the Interior, and Mr. Bennett commission er of the general land office, there are two practical western men at the of affairs. They know conditions in the west and are disposed to encourage development on lawful lines. Among the large force of new agents being put Into the field is Charles Hamel of Grafton.
