Grand Forks, N. D., April 3.—That
the North Dakota Federation of Com
mercial clubs is being appreciated by
the various clubs about the state was
shown Monday when Pres. E. J.
Lander opened his mail and found that
four more clubs had been added to
the Hat of the commercial bodies Join
ing hands to better conditions in gen
eral over the state.
The new members of the federation
are the Fargo, Olenburn, Coulee and
Fordville clubs.
The first club to join the federation
this year was the Lansford organiza
tion. Eight clubs have taken "but 19l2
memberships and the main effort of
the federation this year will be to in
crease the membershio and bring as
many clubs as possible into the fold.
The clubs that have become members
of the federation since the annual
meeting in this city recently are Grand
Forks, Fargo, Lankin, Inkster. Lans
ford, Fordville. Glenburn and Coulee.
That the clubs are already assisting
each other and the various towns rep
resented in a small way is indicated
in a letter from the secretary of the
Lanstord club. Will E. Holbein.
The Lansford organization wrote to
the Grand Forks club for information
regarding the problem of securing
farm laborers. The required informs^
tion was given and the following let
ter was received from Secretary Hoj
"The federation worked eut fine,
and I am sure that every member of
the Lansford Commercial club will
realize this after the monthly meeting
All of the clubs that are now mem
bers of the federation have joined the
state organization without solicitation
and voluntarily*
President Lander Is enthusiastic
over the work of the federation, which
really is the outcome of a meeting of
wholesale grocers in Minot about a
year ago. This morning Mr. Lander
"The principal effort of the federa
tion this year will be to increase the
membership. We want all the clubs
in the state to Join and have a strong
organization that can carry on work
of vast importance to North Dakota.
The way the clubs have been coming
in of their own accord indicates that
the members of the various organiza
tions are Interested. A little later I
think it will be well for the federated
clubs to look Into the advertising
proposition thoroughly. Even though
each club paid out only $5 in judicious
publicity, the returns would more than
make up for the expenditure and thou
sands cf persons would come into
closer touch with North Dakota and

Minot Reporter: Mtnot, N. D.,-March
:j.O.—The Honorable Andrew Miller, At
torney General. My Dear General?
Sec. 9, chapter 129, laws of 1911, N. D.,
provides that "No person shall in order
to aid or promote his nomination di
rrctly or indirectly promise to secure
aid in securing the nomination of
another person, etc."
In your opinion does the statue for
bid any two or more candidates or a
set of candidates co-operating and
circulating cards or tickets of the so
called "slate" order with their names
and offices sought thereon and when
fciich candidates are jointly contribut
ing to the expenses thereof, either in
a direct or indirect manner. I appre
hend that here is no question but what
this statute doee away with the old
system of establishing headquarters
for any of the various sets of candi
dates, but does the statute forbid the
circulating of a printed ticket or slate
when the candidates have in any direct
or indirect manner jointly contributed
towards the expenses thereof. Your
early opinion on this most important
matter is earnestly desired. It is a
matter of vital interest not only to all
those candidates who desire to live up
to the spirit of the law but also to the
voters of the state. I have the hdnor
to to remain, Very respectfully,

Falrmount, N. D., April 3.—Business
and professional men of Falrmount
have formed a co-operative exchange
for the purpose of handling under one
management, butter, eggs, cream and
all kinds of farm produce.
The new plan is working out ad
mirably and after being in operation
two weeks practically all opposition
to it has been withdrawn. Farmers
are patronizing it liberally and are
enthusiastic over its future.
Under the system none of the mer
chants belonging to the company, and
who formerly did a big business in
butter, eggs, cream and poultry, is a4
lowed to handle these commodities
either directly or indirectly, under a
penalty of $50 fine, although they still
share in the business resulting from
the exchange of farm produce.
The farmer brings in his products
to the exchange. The manager, in
payment, gives him one of the com
pany's checks for the amount due, and
the holder can go wherever he chooses
and purchase his goods.
The company has a coinage of
aluminum money, so that a customer
not wishing to trade out the whole
amount of his check in one place or
at one time, can get his change in the
equivalent of real money and that
money is good in turn at the place
of business of any other member of the
The system is calculated to make a
better and larger market for farm
produce of all kinds, centralizing the
business and dealing in large quanti

Carson—April 4.
Bismarck, N. D., April 3.—Com
mencing April 1, Burleigh county offi
cials are going to pay a bounty of
1 cent for each gopher tail brought
in to the proper authorities. A tax for
that purpose was levied by the board
of county commissioners. The bounty
will be^ paid duriiig April and May,
and possibly during! a portion of June,
depending largely upon the amount
of bounty money remaining. It is ex
pected that a great many of these
pests will be destroyed this spring.
County Aud. T. E. Flaherty is busy
sending out certificates to the various
township clerks who are authorized to
accept gopher tails and make out
warrants for the bounties thereon.
The statute regulating the payment
of bounties provides that the tail and
a strip from the back be brought in
to the authorities. Already several
gophers have been seen and some of
the young fellows throughout the
county have been laying up a supply
of gopher tails. Bounty money will
be paid only upon gophers killed
within the county.

Lifi Will CASE
Grand Forks, N. D., April 3.—Litiga
tion extending over a period of seven
years, and involving transactions dai
ing back fourteen years, have been
brought to an end by Judge Page
Morris of the federal circuit court in
a decision by which the suit of Jacuo
Dobmeier against the First National
bank of East Grand Forks, W. H.
Fringle, F. J. Duffy, W. T. Franklin,
S. F. Grover and E. F. Grover. was dis
missed. The period granted the plaint
iff in which to take new steps has ex
pired, and it is evident that the long
fought case has been finally dispos
ed of.
The action involved the title to two
pieces of property In East Grand
Forks, being at the northeast corner
cf Water street ar.d DeMers aveniu-,
and at the southeast corner of DeMers
avenue and Second street. The value
of the property s about $40,000.
It was the claim of the plaintiff that
he had transferred the property to the
First National bank as security for 7
loan. The bank claimed that the trans
fer was in payment of a debt, and al
most immediately the transfer had
been made to It, resold the property,
receiving the same price for the t'.vo
pieces as it had taken it over at, as
per the indebtedness of Mr. Dobmeicr
to the bank.
The original transfers were made in
1898, and July 25, 1905, Mr. Dobmeier
entered suit against the bank and the
several other parties for the return -f
the property to him. The ask of tak
ing evidence was commenced July _.s.

special master. All told, there were
between 1,200 and 1,500 pages of evi

Him. Used CuticuraSoap and Oint
ment 4 Weeks and He Was Cured#
"A few days after birth we noticed an in*
flansea Bpot on oar baby's hip which soon be
gan spreading until baby was completely cov
ered oven in his eyas,
ears and scalp. For
.eight weeks he was
bandaged from head to
jfoot. He could np#
have a stitch of cloth
ing on. Our regular
physician pronounced it
chronic eczema. He is
very able physician and
ranks with the best in
this locality, neverthe
less, the disease began spreading until baby
was completely covered. He was losing fief a
so rapidly that we became alarmed and ^e
eicieri to try Cuticura Soar* and Ointment.
"Not until I commenced using Cuticura
Boap and Ointment could we tell what lie
looked like, as we dared not wash him, and
had been putting one application after
another on him. On removing the scale from
his head the hair came off, and left aha
entirely bald, but since we have been using
Cuticura Soap and Ointment he has as much
hair as ever. Four weeks after we began to
use the Cuticura 8oap and Ointment he was
entirely cured. I don't believe anyone could
have eczema worse than our baby.
"Before we used the Cuticura Remedies
we could hardly look at him, he was such
a pitiful sight. He would fuss until I would
treat him, they seemed to relieve hipi
so much.
Cuticura Soap and Ointment stand by them
selves and the result they quickly and surely
bring is their own recommendation." (Kigned)
