D., May a5.—A tale In cluding the heights of dramatic Inter est was unfolded this week upon the return of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel B. Rus sell, accompanied by Mr. Russell's at torney, L* A. Simpson, from Minne apolis. The melodramatic feature of the scenario Include two deep dyed villians lurking in the shadows, A bit tie of dope, silence, secrets, a night trip on a fast train, the lights of a great city, the signature of papers In a lawyer's office, degradation, re morse and the final and happy state of renouncement, the confounding of the vlllian and the ultimate victory of truth and light. Some of it happ**»# In DleklWtm. When Dan Russell came to town la den with the tidings of having found himself a possible heir to half the estate left by his father, his friends at once became legion. Dan Is the kind of a man who believes everyone is hla friend. He Is a big, whole-souled westerner and cant believe that any one would do him. After two or three days prominence on the street he fell from sight and kept within the four walls of his room or walked alone up on the hills. Many noticed his lassi tude and Dan said he was sick. Dan now comes out with the state ment that one H. G. Whitmore, had KHcured an acquaintance with hlfti and with promises of all sorts got into his con fldence in spite of the advice of friends!, and acting as a lure, enticed lim to Minneapolis without leavinj word as to his destination. Just be fore his departure Dan managed to cviide his companion long enough to William Ray that he was off for t). cities. Dan got a doctor In Min neapolis to *tve hl*n a prescription, inia prescription, so he alleges, wa» torn ur by Whitmore who claimc he k»»w a better remedy and soon pro vided Dan with a bottle from which !it took a swallow. When the Billings county heir came back to himself again he found him self in possession of an interest in a road machine, a patent for jvhich has not been granted nor doe» the stock certificate for $50,000 bear ihe number of the patent. However, the company, when it get* started, is to go under the title of the Minneapolis Road & Ditch Co. Also Dan found ..hat he had made a will, by the terms of which he had made the attorney who took him to Boston his heir and administrator. Also he had allowed his attorney, for the work of securing his fortune, the sum of 115.000 and expense money ad lib. The attorney could have taken the whole estate for expenses had he so desired. He also learned that he had promised,, so he .says,, to ship his cattle from his ranch Jn Billings county to Minneapolis, sell them and place the funds so secured In the bank in the name of H. G. Whitmore. ^Vhen Dan got back from Minne- Molls and Boston and Melrose it be v«n to dawn on him, that he had-been ing, .He took the matter up with \ir.y. I* A. Simpson and it- wasn't until the two were in Mlnneapo-. and getting down to rock-bottom ts. The parties to the various uments got the real original scare "f their lives, surrendered +he manu- rlpts which might have meant a K'od deal to them, and declared i rything off.

S- From The Edmore Herald: North Dakota is a prohibition state and no intoxicating liquor can be sold in this state, acocrdlng to law, only under a druggist permit. Yet, we know there is a lairge amount of both whisky and beer, of the poorest grade, sold in our state and we doubt If there is a town in the state of any' size where either of these intoxicants cannot be pur chased contrary to law., Some people favor the sale, and in some towns busi ness men argue that it Is a irood thing to have a few places where the farmers an get the stuff when they come tc town. They say that is they cannot get it here they will do their trading in other towns where they can get it. The question naturally arises: "Is It a good thing for a town or the sur rounding country?" We claim that It is not. Edmore is no worsi than other towns of its slse in the state as far as blind pigging is concerned and wc claim that it is much better than most towns in this respect, but it is a fair example, as it is right at home and every business man and citizen knows well the conditions. Edmore has been in existence for about seven years let look around and see.what has? hap pened in that time. If we will glance carefully about we will see that wc have not near as many farmers in this section as we had five years ago. There are two reasons for this. One is that some have become dissatisfied with their lot and have sold out and gone to other parts to seek their fortune, but the main thing is that blind pig whisky and 35-cent beer has caused the ruination of many farmers in this section and they have lost their farms through drink and have been compelled to leave. We believe that you can point to at least twenty farmers tribu tary to Edmore who have lost their farms simply through booze, and as many more whose craving for strong drink have so' impaired their credit that no business man cares to trust them. Had these farmers been unable to spend their money for liquor they might have been fairly prosperous and in all probability would be farming here today and purchasing goods and merchandise from the business men of Edmore. As It is they have gone and it leaves us with so many less farmers and so much less business to the busi ness men of Edmore. Now, as a mat ter of fact has not the ruination and loss of these twenty farmers to this locality been of more damage to our town than the benefit that one cr a dozen blind pigs could offset by bring ing trade here, as might be claimed by some people? If a man goes to a town td trade because it has blind pigs and he can buy liquor there, we main tain that in the long run he would he a mighty poor man for a town. Facts and figures will bear out the statement that blind pigs are a detriment rather than a benefit to a town. You never heard of a farmer purchasing a farm In a certain locality because there were blind pigs near at hand.

'v M'MNZIE IS FOR LOWER TARIFF OLD N.» I* WARH0R4C DECLARES ..FOR REVISION DOWtyWAitfc ReduoWon on Coal, QH and Lumbar and Protection for Agriculture, His Iflaa—The Tariff Is Local lasue, Says Farmar National Committee mil. St. Paul, Minn., May 25.—A down ward revision of schedules in accor dance with the declaration of the re publican platfbrm, witn particular reference to a reduction in the rates on lumber, coa.1 and oil, for the benefit of the farmers, and, if possible, pro tection for certain agricultural pro ducts. That i8 Alexander McKencie's idea of what ought to be dona with the tariff. The political leader of North Dakota recently returned from Castle Hot Springs, Ariz., where he spent several months recovering from tne severe Illness which he suffered here last winter. He Is much improved in health and expects soon to return to North Dakota, but for the past few months says hs has been practically dead to the world. Up to a day or 'two ago he had not even read a newspaper, his physician having advised him that if he wanted to get well, he must keep his mind off politics. Agrees With Late General Hancock. He is much interested in the tariff question, however, and although he professed ingoriuice of late develop ments, he gave expression to his views on the" subject freely. "The tariff is a local issue," ha said frankly. "You can'L get around that. I am interested chiefly in what affects the people of North Dakota. They ^on't care anything a' out the rate on Epsom saults or Jamaicaa ginger, nor on fruit or tobacco. What they want Is low rates on coal, lumber and oil. "The farmers of North Dakota have to use coal eight and nearly nine months in the year very few of them are fortunate enough to have gas or electricity, go they need plenty of oil, and you can scarcely do anything towards developing a state without lumber. "The cities in this part of the coun try are dependent upon the growth of the agricultural interests. I believe we should secure protection for our agricultural products if w* .can. In general I am In favor of a .downward revision of the tariff, as promised in the republican platform." ALL LLPL.MJS ON MEN Commission System Depends Entirely On Personnel of Commissioners fo#1 Suooaaa. Commenting on the ocinithlssion plan in cities—The Bismarck Palla dium—published In a city which re cently adopted the plan—hag the fol lowing^ "The discussion on the merits, ^ud demerits of the commission system is waxing more and more acrimonious, as the day approaches for the choice to be made by the people Of Fargo. Out of all the charges and counter charges one fact seems to be grtdvj ally establishing itself in the public mind, ahd that is that the personnel of the commission ftself has more to do with the success or non-success of the hew method than any prbVisien of the law itself.

In San Francisco, where another convulsion of nature created chaos, the same re sult was tempoaily obtained by plac ing the city unde martial law, and the results in that Instance were satisfac tory so fas as they went. In Fargo, however, no such conditions exist. It is not denied that the city Is receiv ing an economical and able adminis tration under the mayor and council plan, and, in addition to 'this, statis tics clearly establish the fact that the city debt hag been substantially lowered and with a concurrent lower ing of the mill levy.

The little girl thought It was only one skeleton, but upon investigation by Chief of police Roby and City Jus tice Thurston it was discovered that there had apparently been two bodies buried there. The grave had been made on the slope of the hill and the bodies had evidently been burled in a •hallow box. Th^re was much conjecture 'a*,.Iff who it might be that was buried there when it was thought that there was only one skeleton.

Quite I a number Imagine that this might clear up the mystery surrounding his disappearance. However, the discov ery that there was mors than one skeleton put this theory to rest. The only conclusion is that the bodies were buried there In the early days when the soldier-* were located at old Fort Lincoln, and migKt elthaf be settler* or Indians.

Hurst's Appointment Not Confirmed by Devils Lake Council., Devils Lake, N. D., May 25.—The meeting of the city council to consider the appointment of the new chief of police, talked of for the past few days, wag a secret meeting of the city dads, who were as silent as the tomb when asked for the particulars of the ses sion. All that ooyld be obtained of the doings of the meeting was that Chief Barnes is ttiii chief of police and that W. J. Hurst wei not elected as special policeman. It seems that Mr. Hurst refused to act as anything but. chief and some of^ the councilman objected to his appointment to that place. Hence, nothing was done and Chief Barnes is still presiding over the law and order as a result of the stand taken by a majority of the councilmen. It is said that a new special policeman and possibly a new chief may be appointed within a few days, although this i? merely rumor as far as the positlftn of the chief of police goes and it may be that Chief Barnes will continue in that place in definitely.

The Sun has long contended that athletics and arithmetic wouldn't mix—that is, when a pupil got his head full of baseball his studies were neglected—and when the great Amer ican game leads up to such disgrace ful clashes as that which occurred Saturday and again Monday, it is high time the school board took a hand. Such occurrences as those mentioned are giving the Church# Ferry high school a very unsavory reputation, and if continued tne school will not only lose its standing among the high schools of the state, but it will be al most impossible for the school board to secure the «erv&es of a taaeher a any standing. ie IMKi i N.
