If the plan work) out successfully, then the other road! will probably follow the lead of the Milwaukee, and replace their colored employes with white men. It is stated that railroad officials have been attempting to solve the pres ent tipping problem for some time past. The answer Is, the railroad officials believe, to replace the colored em ployes with white men and to pay these white employes salaries that will enable them to support themselves. It Is further stated that all the de tails of the plan have been worked out, and that the Milwaukee will proceed shortly to put the plan into execution. The Milwaukee was selected by the other roads, at the meeting of officials, Oo try the experiment. The plan of the Milwaukee also In volves the doing away with colored help on the diners of the company. The waiters'will be replaced with white men just as on the sleeping cars. While the railroad man who gave out the story stated that the plan involved t'he expenditure of a greater amount of money by the railroads, the railroad officials are of the opinion that in the end it will pay. In the first place, there Is at the present time an agita tion against the tipping Bystem. This the officials of the larger railroads clearly perceive. They are of the opin ion that rhe placing of white men in the work now done by colored men will decrease the earnings of the railroads at first, but that in the end it will pay.

According to the statement of a Chicago railroad man. who is here to day, the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Ry. will soon try an experiment that will determine largely whether the colored porter is to b«onrae a relic of the past, so far as railroad trans portation in the north is concerned. It is stated upon the authority of this man that the Milwaukee will re place all of the colored porters in its employ with white men, that the tip system will be entirely abolished as far as it is possible for the railroad officials to abolish this practice, and that the salary of the white employe will be made sufficient to permit him to live decently without the aid of tips. to attend 1 S TilE CITI OF HOMES NEAT BOOKLETS CONTAINING BEAUTIFUL VIEWS OF FARQO PRESENTED A8 SOUVENIR8 TO INTERSTATE VI8I i OR3 CAME FROM THE PRESS TODAY. The neat little pharaphlst, "Fargo the City of Homes," which was pre pared by the commercial club for the express purpose of distribution at the Interstate fair came from the press this morning and thousands of them will be given away free at the fair grounds this week. The booklet contains a typical views of Fargo and the adver tisement of a number of the cities en terprising business institutions. The object of the booklet is well ex pressed in the following introduction taken from the booklet: The object of presenting you with this souvenir is to convince you thai Fargo Is pre-eminently a city of homes Nothing better can be said of any city, for homes are the has' of business— of society and the support of a nation. In order to be a city of homes a com munity must have something to make a permanent residence desirable and attractive. This is what Fargo does. A glance through these pages will be sufficient to show, to some extent, that this Is a fact. With all the facilities of the larger cities of the country, Fargo also offers ®ome of the desirable things to be found in smaller communities. The extremes of poverty—the tainted at mosphere—the lower classes of a cos mopolitan city are absent. On the other hand tlie metropolitan advantages are many. One of the first things a homeseeker investigates is the educational facilities—places where his children can be educated and brought up within a moral envlr- I onment Fargo can offer its children an education which Is as good as the best. Outside of the best public school system in the country this city has six colleges and academies and three conservatories of music. What more could be asked in educational lines? Moral surroundings and good enter tainment are also vital considerations to the person seeking a permanent home. Fargo has twenty-five churches embracing practically all denomina tions. It has three high class vaude ville theatres and a fine operahouse. To theee come a high class of enter tainments ranking with the best to be found in the largest cities. Another thing, Fargo property is the best kin4 of an investment—a thing always to be considered. These, in brief, are a few good things to be found in Fargo. No effort is made to deal specifically, but this is offered to the people by the Fargo Commercial club with the knowledge that it has something of value to offer the homeseeker. Horse Sale at N. P.

SEIZURE MADE OF GOV'T INSTRUMENTS WEATHER OBSERVER AT GLEN ULLIN BALKEd AT GIVING UP INSTRUMENTS WHEN REMOVED —DEPUTY U. S. MARSHAL Mo- KAY CALLED ON THE MAM. When Deputy TT. S. MSffShal A. E. McKay arrived in the city Jast even ing from the west, he was fitted up with instruments to compete with Col. Grasse. The federal peace officer had just arrived from Glen Ullin, N. D., where he made a seizure of weather bureau instruments. Two very fine thermometers, a brace in which they are held and one rain gauge, com posed the outfit over which there was something of a dispute. It appears that F. W. Reuter served for a time as observer and was fur nished with the necessary apparatus. For some reason his term expired and the department demanded the instru ments. He balked at turning them over and it was necessary to bring a civil action, through the district at torney's office, before the necessary papers could be secured to make the seizure. No consideration was, taken of the value of the instruments In question by the department. A demand was made by the government and it was calrried out.

Sut ton, Junior lieutenant of the United States marine corps, which is now un der way at Annapolis, will result In a congressional Investigation of that branch of t'he naval service next fall is an opinion held here by many members of both houses. In spite of the attention the tariff bill has lately required, both senators and representatives have kept close track of the testimony that has come out before the board of inquiry. They have read the full accounts of the tes timony of the young marine officers mixed up iii the affair, and several have openly expressed their surprise that such conditions could toe possible in the government service* Thorough Probl, At a private social function one of the powerful western senators declared that he had read every line of the tes timony that the newspapers reported and that the laxness of discipline shown surprised and shocked him. "I believe tha:t congress will take up this marine corps situation in the fall, no matter what the verdict of the pres ent board of inquiry may be. There appears to be among the younger of ficers a spirit utterly foreign to that which should mark the men who have charge of our sea police. It may be necessary to thoroughly reorganize the system of appointing and training mar ine corps officers. "The unfortunate case of Mr. Sut ton can be cleared up by the present board of inquiry with perhaps a few courtis martial for the officers who have on the stand confessed to violations of the regulations, but the root of the evil—the system—can, to my mind, only be corrected by a thorough lhves tigation by congress." Don't Like Brutality. In dteeussing the question of brutal ity another senator said: "There is a disposition on the part of legislators here to frown upon any form of brutality In any branch of the government service. It may be all ri/ ht for Che Germans to encourage fighting among their cadets and officers, but we will not tolerate it in this country The idea prevails that the Sutton inci dent is only unusual in that it resulted in death. I trust we will And time to go thoroughly Into the matter." I't was largely through the Influence and hard work of Senator Jonathan Bourne, Jr., of Oregon that the Sutton case was reopened by the navy depart ment. The Suttons have lived in Port land for many years, the father being prominent in railroad affairs on the coast. After spending Saturday in Washing ton, Judge Advocate Henry Leonard and 'rtie attorneys of the Sutton family, Henry E. Davis and Van Dyke Broth ers, returned tonight to Annapolis, where the inquiry will be resumes! to morrow morning. Four Mere Witnesses. The government has yet four wit nesses uncalled. The two most impor tant are Lieutenant Uttley and Surgeon Cook, who are returning from an Eu ropean cruise on the battleship New, Hampshire. They cannot reach An napolis before Aug. 1 and will probably* be the last witnesses heard. Uttely was one of the officers who rode out from the Carvel hall barroom in Sutton^ automobile. He had a hand, according to testimony, in the first flat fight near the College creek bridge and was on the scene of the death fight, which occurred a few minutes later. Surgeon Cook performed the autopsy the morning after the young, marine died. His testimony is wanted particu larly to determine the number of wounds on Suttons body and their na ture. Another government witness is Ern est Fogg, a c$mw Washington clUb man, who MwM'm 8«tton when, the latter V i Interstate Fair Bargains For tliis week only are giving special inJttce ments on everything in our store, creating greater bargains than ever before.
