INCH AND HALF MUST YET FALL
THIS MONTH TO EQUAL LAST
MAY—APRIL RAINFALL THIS

Statements have been made that
there has been too much rain this
spring. According to the records of
the government weather station nearly
an inch and a half of rain must fall
the remaining ten days of this month
to equal the amount of rainfall during
May of last year.
This afternoon Mrs. Grasse of the
Moorhead weather station kindly sup
plied The Forum with the measure
ments for the months of April and
May last year and the coresponding
montha of tbts year and they are as
follows!

On M&y 1, this year, 1.2 inches of
rain fell and that wetted the lands
very considerably at a time whein they
were still wet with the winter's snow
and they are now so wet that the ab
sorption below the surface is very
slight so that the surplus from the
recent heavy showers has drained into
the various streams and low places.
The entire precipitation from Jan.
1, this year Is but one-tenth of an
inch greater than the precipitation
from Jan. 1, 1911 to his dae in 1911.

The Bismarck aggregation will
charter a special car that will proba
bly be attached to No. 6 Tuesday
morning, June 4. Arrangements are
being made to have the special cars
bearing the Elks from Dickinson,
Mandan, Bismarck, Jamestown and
Valley City all attached to the same
train so that the boys from the west
will land at Fargo together. One
thing is certain. Whether or not they
reach Fargo in a body, they will make
things hum when they do get there,
and the valley towns will be very much
aware that the slope country is and
always has been on the map.
From Valley City.
Valley City Times Record: That a
special oar, and if necessary a special
train will be furnished for the conven
tion of Elks in Fargo in June, was the
assurance received this morning from
A. M. Cleland, general passenger agent
of the Northern Pacific in St. Paul.
As soon as it was known that the
number of local Elks who would go
to Fargo would exceed fifty, Nels
Johnson, in charge of the arrange
ments for the trip, wrote Mr. Cleland,
asking for a special car. The number
who have pledged themselves to make
the trip has increased dally until It is
now eighty-nine, and it is expected
that a good many more will catch the
enthusiasm and decide to go, before
the date of the convention arrives.
The car will be brought here on the
day before the opening of the conven
tion and will be decorated appropri
ately.

Caia County Democrats Are Urging
W. P. Porterfield to Make Raoe
for State Senata
W. P. Porterfield, the well known
and popular Broadway druggist, Is the
choice of many of the leading dem
ocrats of Fargo and Cass county for
state senator from this district. Many
of the county democratic leaders and
Mr. Porterfleld's personal friends, Um
espective of politics and party affllia
lons, are urging him to run to suc
eed Sen. James Kennedy, who it is
understood will not be a candidate
or re-election.
It is known that Mr. Porterfield does
ot want to be a candidate nor has he
ensented to run. It is reported that a
number of democrats waited on him
rcsterday afternoon to get hip consent
0 having petitions circulated for him,
ijut Mr. Porterfield declined.
"I am out of politics," said Mr. Por
nerfield to a Forum representative
when asked about the matter. "And I
don't want to run for any office."'
A rumor is current that a petition
for him may yet be started by five of
his friends, which according to the in
terpretation of the law, is permissible
without the sanction of the eandidate.

PROSECUTION SEEMED TO MAKE
BUT LITTLE HEADWAY TODAY
PATTERSON AND LENDEY ON
STAND—SEARCHING CROSS-EX
AMINATIONS.
A big light & bolng made by the
array of counsel, Attorneys Marden,
Daly and Peterson to establish the in
nocence of the defendant in the case
of the state against F. M. Rice who is
alleged to have been Implicated In the
robbing an elderly man, R. W. Pat
terson last fall of $890 in cash which
haj been paid to him by the defendant
a few hours before, he was relieved of
his wealth.
The first witness called by the coun
ty attorney was the complaining wit
ness, Patterson, who told the story of
his being relieved of his money while
being driven to town in a buggy with
Mr, Rice, who had been his employer
and who had only a few hours before
had paid over to him currency to the
amount of $890. He told of how Rice
and himself was stopped in the road
by one Ed Lendey, an employe on the
Rice farm, how that after shots had
been fired witness got out of the buggy
and hid his roll of money under a sack
at the rear of the buggy, that when he
was doing that Lendey was at the
heads of the horses, and Rice some
distance away near a ditch. Later
Londey disappeared with the horses,
leaving Patterson and Rice to walk to
town.
Patterson was very aearchingly
cross examined by Attorney Daly who
to a great extent shattered a consid
erable part of the testimony for tho
state and seemed to have established
considerable of a doubt.
The next witness called for the state
was Ed Lendey who pleaded guilty,
last fall, to the robbing of Patterson
anj was sentenced to a term in the
reform at oi'y at St. Clotid and was
brought to Moorhead yesterday as a
witness in the case. Lendey in the
course of his evidence said that the
defendant had told him while work
ing out in the fields that Patterson
was going to leave at a certain time,
tha.t he was gong to pay him about
$800, and that he added, "It would be
a good joke on the old man if some
body should hold him up and take
away his money." Witness was very
closely examined hy the county at
torney as to all the circumstances and
remarks which had been made on and
about the farm a day or two prior to
Patterson leaving on the Saturday
night in question for Moorhead. The
cross-examination of Lendey was
conducted by Mr. Daly, who was very
exacting as to conflicting points being
fully explained.

Quakerism in Japan.
American Review of Reviews: Ja
pan is a jingolistic and warlike na
tion, It has always been pre-eminent
ly military. Unlike China, it has
never produced a great philosopher,
but it has had many great warriors.
The valor and patriotism of its peo
ple are of world-wide repute. This
land of fine fighters would seem like
stony ground for a peace propaganda.
None the less, all close observers know
that a great change has come over
the spirit of Japan within a decade,
Thehe is now a peace party that is
not only respectable, but powerful as
well. The Japan Peace society is a
national force today, with many of the
best names in the empire on it roll.
The explanation is, primarily, Gilbert
Bowles and the tend of the time.
He and his fellow quakers establish
ed the society, keeping well in the
background themselves.
There Is now a peace party that is
assured success, he launched the Am
erican Peace society in Japan, in
v.'hich may be found the foremost
American business men resident in
that land, as well as, naturally, the
missionaries. These two organizations
have done more to keep the peace
and promote a spirit of good will be
tween Japan and America than all the
warships and honorary commissions
put together. They have helped to
hold Japan steady during the trying
days of the war In America, and
what Japan endured during the period
is creditable to the self-restraint of
a proud and confident people. In un
suspected ways these peace societies
have worked in both lands to allay
irritation and stimulate mutual un
derstanding. No diplomat In Toklo
has been busier upon international
affairs than this soft-spoken, appar
ently embarrassed representative of
the Society of William Penn. He
knows the way to editorial offices
and, what Is more difficult, he knows
how to avoid becoming a bore. Be
hind many of the functions in which
American visitors to Japan figure 1#
his soft-stepping activity.

LOCAL AUTHORITIES ARE COM*4
PLAINING THAT DISABLED
WORKMEN ARE THROWN ON
THE COUNTY RAILROADS
SHOULD STAND EXPENSE.
It la alleged that a h«»yjr |ttr4«J
has been put on Cass county through
the negligence of the railroads of thl#
section of the country. Men are ship
ped from different parts of the east
to take up positions in railroad camp®
or on section crews in the west. Many
of these men are disabled or sick and
are unable to work. They are dis
charged by the foreman of the ganff
or the boss as being useless and feft
for the county to take care of.
County Auditor Lpech and Commis
sioner Rusch have taken the matter
in hand and will see what can be done.
It is an every day occurrence and tho
county institutions are filled to their
capacity. Three of four charges are
taken in every day, and they each tell
the same story, about being shipped
up here to work on the railroad aJid
then about getting the "oan," v
When seen by a representative o#
The Forum, Mr. Leech had the follow*
Ing to say: "I am unable to see why
the county should take care of th«
men shipped to this section of the
country by the different railroads. The
railroads should be made to stand the
oxpense or the men should be" g$|H
back to where they came from."
A preacher man in Spokane is said
to have stood on his head, probably
because he wanted something solid to
stand on.
