He has endeavored to show effl ciency and capability, as well as a fair consideration of both the people and the railroad, elevator and other public utility companies in the maze of con flicting claims which have come be fore the commission. A new member of the board of rail road commissioners would be com pelled to spend quite a little time to le&rn even the routine of the office end a good deal more time to learn the many technical and involved Ques tions with which the board is con fronted. For that reason Mr. Mann'a friends believe that he should be re tained in the interest of efficiency, economy and because of his services, which are worth more today to the people of the state many times than they were when he first became a member of the board six years ago.

A new painless method of childbirth has been developed in a Freiburg hos pital by two famous specialists it has now been used in 5,000 cases with un varying success not a single fatality to the mother can be charged to it, and it has decreased the rate of infant mortality.—McClure's Magazine. Over the dark and cruel stream that motherhood must cross A bridge of dreams has flung its glistening spans, And they who pass, with light hearty journey on. Whispering to eager ears a wond rous tale. In all the corners of the earth pale women hear Their sad eyes shine the tidings seem too marvelous— Too great the miracle—yet they be lieve, And start with slow and painful steps upon their pilgrimage. The river's roar sounds closer and more terrible. With faltering feet they near the bridge's gate— When, lo! upon them falls the twi light sleep of rest, A peace of floating cloud and sum mer sea, A world where care is not, and pain unknown And then—the river lies behind! God's greatest gift. So loved, so feared, rests in their cir cling arms. Unwittingly, the dreaded crossing has been made! Oh, twilight sleep! White magic of a mastermind Whose sympathy for women •wrought this priceless boon To end the suffering of ages yet to come— Pray God, the humblest one may seek your misty world In future years then all the agonies we now endure Shall be but ugly legends, of gone day a by To those most blessed ones whose children first draw breath The while their mothers wander through a golden haze— A sleep that leads from hope to ut ter happiness! —Ethel H. Wofe in New York Times Last Lap of Pioneer Railroading. Engineering News: The great ad venture in government railways in this country is at last afoot. The pres ident has selected the three engineers to locate the 1,000 miles of railway across the Alaskan peninsula. The men named are not of nation-wide reputation in the engineering field, but, jointly, they present a fitness for the work they have in hand. One is of long experience as locating en gineer on railways of the mountain ous west, the second has spent years in the survey of the subarctic north and the third has served practically his entire engineering career as engi neering and administrative head of the only government railway. Thus they bring a composite experience in rail way location, acquaintance with lo cal conditions and familiarity with government administration, the three requirements for success in this par ticular venture. If they can fuse their Individual attainments Into a unified control the success of the prelimi naries to government railways in Alaska is hopeful. Meanwhile, many of their professional brethern will envy them their opportunities in this, the last great pioneer railway work on this continent.

Sioux City Tribune: In a speech upon the trust question Congressman Victor Murdock, the progressive party leader in the house, made this observ ation: "There is no man here who does not Impeach, in his moments of deeper deliberation, an economic spectacle which shows 5,000,000 farms, annually teeming with grain, swollen in volume a hundred fold by the beneficence of machinery, and, side by side with these bursting bins of plenty, hunger and want which shows 10,000 pastures dotted with flocks and millions of acres white with cotton, and. side by side with them, the rags of penury which shows the greatest developed coal treasurers of the earth, and, side by side with them the city's poor carrying the family fuel for a winter's day home in a bushel basket." This is a condition that challenges attention, and is going to demand ever-increasing attention, for it is the problem of distribution. Mr. Murdock, who so accurately limns the situation, does not so accurately outline the remedy, which he thinks is bound up in the trust question. The trust question is only one phase of this problem of distribution, prob ably the least important phase as the trust problem has largely to do with production, unless transportation lines are regarded as a trust. Certainly the trust question has nothing to do with the bursting granaries and the starv ing tenements. Improper distribution of labor, back of which is improper distribution of population multiplication of middle men and machinery they use neglect to utilize to their capacity the methods of transportation we now enjoy, such as parcel post, express companies, in terurban lines and even steam roads greed of commission firms, cold stor age concerns and other jobbers and the criminal waste and negligence of the people themselves, all these enter into the problem of distribution, which is at the bottom of the chasm that widely separates those who have in abundance from those who have noth ing. It is going to take time and patience and education to solve this problem. The best way to begin is to view it largely, instead of putting one's finger on some one phase of it and proclaim- All the ^aws of North Dakota should be enforced in all parts of the state, without regard to the po litical or personal effect of such en forcement. EVERNEED To the Voters of North Dakota: A few weeks ago it was brought to my notice that, while my oppon ents for nomination for attorney general in their announcements in the public press were in favor of enforcing the laws of this state, nevertheless their friends and sup porters in portions of the western part of the state were attempting to at least "square" them with the element opposed to the enforcement of the liquor and gambling laws. I then wrote my opponents ap, open letter requesting them to meet me in a joint meeting at dan, that the public might have definite knowledge of just what vm* each called enforcement." They all declined, stating they were in favor of enforcing all the laws of the state and stood upon their record. Enforcement—What do they mean by enforcement "t For* the Attorney General to sit in his office in Bismarck and request local officials to enforce certain laws, even when it is a certainty they will not? or for the law-enforcing officer to sit in his office and wait for some one to come in and make legal and technical com.-,, plaint of offenses known to be continually committed? or to en* force the prohibition law on the bootlegger and the blind-pigger and1 let the unlawful drinking club with social and political "pull" to, go scot free? And how about the gamblers? To date no Attorney. General has interfered with them. money to im prove your residence -properties? 11 No. Too F. C. HEFFRON DICKINSON, N. D. Candidate at the Republican Primarlea for Attorney General Platform. This is what I believe "enforcement'* means: To enforce the laws against gambling against all violators, to enforce the prohibition? law against the friendless bootlegger and the influential club or s& ciety alike, and against all of them, regardless of pull or politic!, and to enforce all other criminal laws in like manner. And wher* crimes are known to be committed to go after the offenders without.. waiting for private citizens to come in and make complaint or driv* me into doing my duty. Record—My opponents having invoked their records, let vM examine them They have been officeers chargeed with enforce- raent of the laws of the state, including the prohibition law, yet (so I am informed, and I believe it to be true) they never prosd cuted an unlawful drinking club or lodge, in spite of the known' violations of the law by such clubs. Further, my opponents seeaiv to be entirely satisfactory to these law-breaking organizations ani the members thereof are campaigning strenuously for them and against me. My Record—Within the territory assigned to me in the part five years I have brought actions against every lodge, club, brother^ hood or other organization that I could obtain evidence against, including the Owls of Dickinson and New Salemr.the Moose of Dickinson, Mandan and Bismarck, the Elks' club of Dickinsos/1' Mandan and Bismarck, and other organizations. "'C-\ The easiest and cheapest way to enforce the laws is to ele?t officers who are known by the criminals to mean business, and whifr will go after them without being driven into doing their sworn duty. To the voter and good citizen: Every criminal and his.friencfe* ?re against m* Is that not good reason why YOU should vet*' ,, A -TsWV i*, lor me? _• 'i Within the past few weeks there appears to be a reawakening over the state of certain "lodges" and clubs, whose sole excuse for existence is to pander to the "booze" element and to violate 1 he laws of North Dakota. It is common knowledge that th)S slate's attorney of one of the eastern counties was defeated two y ars ago because of his interference with the unlawful practice* of certain clubs. Ever since North Dakota has been a state certain fayored crim iuals have enjoyed practical immunity from punishment. To break this kind of anarchy is my reason for being a candidate for at iorney general. If elected I will break it upv Mr. Voter, will yoil your shai?e-f i -Ml I believe this is a fair statement of the situation on the Attorney' General contest: A.,vote for Mr. Linde is a vote for a step backward. ,f A vote for Mr. Zuger is a vote to stay just where we A vote for F.
