At the last'meetfn? of the board of directors of the First Nationat bank of this city, at which time Coni?. 1». B. Hanna resigned from the presidency of that institution, a special committee was appointed to draft a set of reso lutions commending his efficient serv ices as the head of that banking house. The committee comprised W. A. Scott, Peter Luger and J. S. Watson, and offered the following set of fine resolutions regarding Mr. Hanna's splendid work as president of the First National bank, also as vice president and a director of the same. The reso lutions have been unanimously adopt ed by the directors and were given out today: We, the undersigned, appointed a committee to draft resolutions sug gested by the retirement of Mr. Hanna as president of this bank, submit the following: Be it resolved, that in accepting the resignation of Hon- L. B. Hanna as president of this bank, the board of directors express its profound appre ciation of his services both as director, vice president and president. Mr. Hanna's official connection with the bank began in 1899, and for most of that period he has devoted much time,' thought and energy to promoting its interests. We recognize in him the possession of those rare qualities which inspire confidence among men, and which have so materially aided in building up this bank to its present recognized position as the largest fi nancial Institution In North Dakota. Mr. Hanna's relations with his fellow directors and with all employes of the bank have always been Intimate and cordial. We respect and admire Mr. Hanna as a man and a broad-minded citizen whose connection with the First National bank at one of its di rectors is, we trust, to. continue for many years. In seeking a field of action calling for the use of perhaps a higher range of mental faculties than can be brought Into play in any specific busi ness vocation, this board feels assured that he will perform any duties im posed upon him by the people of this state with the same fidelity and effi ciency'that he has ever shown in his conduct of the affairs of thia bank. Respectfully submitted, Wm. A. Scott, Peter Luger, J- S. Watson, Committee. CHOOSING A CAREER Young Men of Plymouth Congrega tional Church Will Listen to Ad dree* by pr.

A% Cfookston, yesterdajK three 'de fendant^, charged at the instance of the fish and game commission of Min nesota, with selling white fish out of season were dismissed in double-quick time upon information received from the pfllce of the attorney general in St Paul, to the effect that the game laws of the state of Minnesota had not been violated by sale of white fish caught in Canadian waters and sold In Minnesota. The men were promptly discharged from custody. The defendants, Mose Giler of Grand Forks, B. Markovitz of Winnipeg and B. Starkman of Crookston. They ship ped in a carload of white fish from a point near Winnipeg to Crookston, upon proper bills of lading and all formalities and charges demanded by United States customs officers had been complied with and the fish properly passed the port of entry into the Unit ed States. On arrival in Crookston the fish men began the sale of their goods, but immediately the local game warden there seized the stock and arrested the owners, and a charge was made of violating the game laws of the state. The prosecution was according to in structions from the attorney general's office, but after a careful examination of the laws, state and federal, it was found that a mistake had been made and a phone message from St. Paul to the people at Crookston was to the effect that the case be dismissed and the men discharged p. d. q. Referring to the case The Crookston Times says: "This back somersault in the attorney general's office was well executed, as the people of Minnesota really believe that the legal machinery of Minnesota can discover work more profitable to the people of the state than by prose cuting people who are shipping in a food that can be purchased cheap by people who are compelled to live as cheaply as possible. "Recently at Fergus Falls several fish dealers were arrested and Induced to plead guilty to the same offense, and paid a fine of $45. If this was not highway robbery of the accused, and the improper use of legal machinery, we would not know how to name it. Catholic Order ef Foresters.

BOA CONSTRICTOR IN A STRAW STACK FOUND BY FRANK JERRUl' ON THE EASTLAND FARM, 80UTH OF THE CITY—IS IN STATE OF f. COMA AND IS A MONSTER- FiFTfiEN FEET LONG. A novelty, in the shape of a mon ster boa constrictor, is to be seen on the farm of Frank Jerrue, known as the Eastland farm, Moorhead. This specimen of the serpent species was found in a state of coma by Mr, Jerrue in a straw stack, on his farm yesterday. The reptile is six to eight inches thick and fifteen feet long and to all appearances is frozen stiff. It is the first specimen of the kind ever heard of in this region, at least not since the departure of the Indians from the plains of Minnesota. Mr. Jerrue and his neighbors think that perhaps the boa may be the one which escaped from the Barnum & Bailey animal show which exhibited in Fargo last year. Those interested in snake ology are invited to go and view the reptile at their convenience—it is in Mr. Jerrue's barn sleeping peacefully, but if it should awake from its hiber nation it will be properly secured and cared for.
