The State Society of Engineers will
meet at Bismarck next Feb. 13 and 14
and a number of the A. C. professors
and other Fargoans will be in attend
ance, several of them will appear on
the programme. The engineers met in
Grand Forks last winter, and at the
annual election of officers H. G. Lykken
city engineer of Grand Forks, was
chosen as president and Prof' E. F.
Chandler of the university was elected
sedetary. The other officers of the
association are two vice presidents and
the men chosen Jast year for these
positions are T. R. Atkinson of ££t

Unclosed find 10c, for which
please have sent to the following
address, the pattern described
Crabbe of Fargo.
The it.eeting will be held durinjr the
session of the state legislature and the
members of the society hope to have
severul laws passed by that body. One
or the laws which they believe shuuld
be passed is one providing for the
licensing of all land surveyors in the
state of North Dakota. A special leg
islative committee has been appointed
to look aftor this matter and those on
the committee are President Lykken
and Professor Chandler of Grand
Forks and W. A. Baker of the state
science school at Wahpeton.
At the meeting held last winter there
were representatives present from
every part of the state and there are
now about eighty members of the so
ciety. Besides several others the fol
lowing members of the society will ap
pear on the programme at the Bis
marck gathering: R. w, Livington

J. C. Field of WiUiston is chairman of
a similar committee for the western
section. Professor Becker ia at the
head of the committee on concrete
material and tests and J. A. Jardine
of Fargo is chairman of the county
bridge committee. There are a num
ber of less important reports to be
made at the gathering and it is ex
pected that this will be the beat meet
ing ever held by the society. Thie as
sociation of engineers was only form
ed a short time ago, but Jt has steadily
been growing and it now1 includes most,
of the engineers within the state. The
society is similar to those in a numb&r
of other states and it was formed f^r
the purpose of advancing the he/t
interests of the state.
Brutal Speed ManiaOf. '.
Baltimore Evening Sun: Accidents
are sometimes unavoidable, but there
is no excuse for the automobilist or
motorcyclist who runs away after he
has injured a man.
Here was young Findley Toye run

cyclist Bped away with hardly a glance
to see how badly the boy was hurt.
There was Charles Satterfield run
down in the street in Washington, the
occupants of the automobile rushing
away, leaving him to die.
Such brutality makes the blood boll.

After the Butter Trust.
St. Paul Dispatch: The length and
breadth of the land are interested in
the government proceedings against
the so-called butter trust. Tf any or
ganization is able to exercise control
over the butter product and to man
ipulate its prices, the whole nation is
concerned. It is inconceivable that
such control could be otherwise than
sinister. No organization would be in
terested in holding down prices its
energies would be directed to advanc
ing the prices and extorting the dif
ference from the consumers of the
country. The assertion of the presi
dent of an Illinois exchange that
"30 cents was enough for a pound of
butter and the price should be per
mitted to go no higher," carried the
admission that prices were controlled.
If so, the people are entitled to know
by whom and for what purpose. The
government's suit, it is hoped, will dis
close the answers.
If it is true that 60,000 tons of butter
are now in cold storage in Chicago and
the supply virtually cornered, the gov
ernment has material to work with.
Refrigeration processes are a boon to
mankind and in their benevolent oper
ation may be made a groat, equalizer
of prices hut this corner suggests a
malevolent use and indicates tho ma
nipulation of the cold storage trust.
To traffic in the public necessity of a
great staple like butter seems flying in
the facf: of providonco in times like
these. Public sentiment is at white
heat against rnonopolisic combinations
of every character and it will not re
gard lightly any effort to corner food
stuffs and extract extra money from
the pockets of the people at a. time
when the high living cost is extorting
groans from every rank and class.
Emotions of Love.
From The Dayton Dally News: A
journal devoted to the drama wants
a new sort of play. It desires a great
drama based upon "some emotion oth
er than love."
But the journal is likely to do a lot
of advertising and spend a great deal
of time before it finds such a play. So
far In human history there has been
written no great drama that did not
have love for its basis, and there is
not likely to be written in the future
a play based upon any other emotion.
In fact, there is no other great emo
tion in the universe than love.
Upon one of the dead walls of an
cient Pompeii has been found the in

"That the recognition accorded Gov
ernor Burke at Baltimore last June
was more than a passing tribute, is
now being refelected by the handsome
endorsements he ia receiving, unso

northwest, but from leading demo
crats of the entire country, for North
Dakota's favorite son Cor secretary of

This was the declaration of Col.
Joseph M. Kelly of Devils Lake, pres
ident of the only farmers' railway in
the world, and a member of the
democratic state central committee,
who is at the Gardner today. The
colonel is on^ of the delegation that
will Bweep down on Trenton, N. J.,
before the first of the year in the in
terest of Governor Burke:
"It certainly is pleasing to note the
wonderful support that is given the
governor," he continued. "Republicans

"Yes, I believe Governor Burke is
one of the biggest men in tlie coun
try today. His worth to the demo
cratic party cannot be overestimated,
and at the present time is certainly
not being under estimated by the
leaders of the party."
To his democratic friends in Fargo,
Colonel Kelly has extended an invita
tion to visit the lake, where he asserts
harmony surcharges the air.
"The war is over," he declared.
"All differences have been forgotten,
wp even feel sorry for you folks down
St Fsrgo."
