HAPPY NEW YEAR. 9 The Forum wishes to all Its readers la happy and prosperous New Year. 3 The year that is gone waa a mcmor 2 fhie one. It had its regrets, its dis appointments, its bitter sorrows. So »w])l the year to come. But on the if? whole, to the people of Fargo and of North Dakota, the year 1914 was one of prosperity. The year to come gives promise to even greater material wel fare. The Komm ran look back over the jear that is past with satisfaction. It i Las been a year of growth. The For um's family of readers and of advertis ing patrons is constantly increasing and there is every reason to hope for 'ji\ continuation of this prosperity. The Forum Is glad to take this op portunity of extending hearty thanks lor all business and courtesies extend ed, at the same time feeling that it Las given full value received for every cloilar spent with it. As a mater of fact, the people of Vargo are well served in the news piper field. Both The Courier News find The Forum are putting forth every effort to give the people of this city rnd this section, real live, up-lo cate newspapers and it is the belief of ^*The Forum that their efforts are •^leart ly JK appreciated, cspeclany by the business men of Fargo. The Forum would like to see its Jieighbor in the morning iield continue to prosper. The city can well afford So support two newspapers and when iioth are making slucere and con« lentous efforts to build up the com an unity, they should have the loyal hacking of all the citizen*, whose wel fare they are helping t« advance. FREE SOUP. There lias been criticism from some charters of the "free soup" that is be ing given to the needy of Fargo at the Jlad Tidings mission. It Is said by some that this is unnecessary, that work should be provided for these men. that giving them free meals is •pimply encouraging idleness and atiift loHsneas. It is a noticeable fact how ever that no one has "come across" "with any employment fqr. the men in the "soup line." The theory that "free, soup kitchens'* (pre not the proper way to handle the poverty problem may sound well—but hunger, cold and misfortune are not theories. They are conditions. They fciv facts. Facts must bo met with .facts. The need of money must be Inet with money. The lack of food in ust be met with food. And whether these men are victims ©f their own shiftless habits or not. the people of Fargo are not going to pee them go hungry- «r eold.. .... UNCLE SAM'S WAYS. However popular it may be to criti cise the workings of governmental de partments, cveryojjQ roust admlt^ that I there are certain branches of Uncle pam'a machinery which are always •well oiled and which roll on with as tonishing celerity and smoothness. JThc latest evidence of this is the case jpf the Greek leper, who, after endan gering entire communities by his wan derings, fell into the hands of Uncle Kam and is now on his way to Jiu rope. looking back At the Instances of itoeglect in the matter of lepers, which came about through carelessness or imperfect oiled machinery in the past, we cannot but admire the meth ods of Uncle Sam in this case. Instead «f placing the man in a detention house or isolation ward, the United States immigration bureau hired spe cial trains, special ambulances, special agents and all other things necessary to absolute safety, and whipped the leper across the country and to a steamer, without the slightest ripple or publicity. After it was all Ter the matter wan made public and every one is relieved. Reporters were not Invited to the departure of the leper. He was not Subjected to the glass cage treatment and made the subject of popular dis cussion as though the principal at traction at a menagerie. He was sim ply shipped. And how much better the method proves than those we have been hearing of in the past. The ways of Uncle Sam offer many suggestions to municipalities throughout the coun try. Quiet and properly managed methods in matters of this kind are the best recommendations .. of a de partment's efficiency. feOOD RESOLUTION. "This is the time for making good Resolutions. What better one can you make than that you will begin to save —a definite amount each week. Its One of the finest habits you can ac quire. If it is only a matter of a few cents a week, get started. You will find a fascination in watching a sav-' jngs account grow that will1 not do you «ny harm. How much could be accomplished if fevery person in the United States that !%vas able to save would do so, is point ed out by The New York Journal of Commerce as follows: "When this cruel was Is over,'' $ jtfeers will h§va beau greet d**truc«i tiojn of accumulated qapllnl ..and the^e will be great nefrd of rebuild ing industries and restoring trade. There will be an unprecedented opportunity for those who have money to invest or have been In vesting it during the process of destruction. Neutral nations will not have escaped some of the loss during the destructive process and the interruption of industry and derangement of trade, but they Will be in a position of advantage In the recovering. There is. no other country which will have any thing like the share in this ad vantage which will fall to the United States. It has a certain amouht of Compensation ven dry ing the war In supplying the needs of those engaged in it which they have disabled themselves from ful ly meeting, and increasing its part in the trade with other neutrul countries.- This makes It worth while for the people of this coun try to practice more economy and indulge in less extravagance of expenditure than thry are ac customed to in ord4nary ttmcs. They should also havo a motive for Increasing their efficiency in production with a view t" ac cumulating the fruits. Ono does not realize without giving thoughtful consideration to." the matter how much a moderate saving would amount to in a year's time with a people like those of the I'nlted States. There are now approximately 100,000,000 of them. Take that as a convenieut round number. It is usually calculated that one in five of them, or 20, 000,000, are males of mature years, and many somewhat under maturi ty, as well as some females, are capable of earning and saving more or less. Let us assume that one-half of the full number are so poor and incapable of earning more than they need for their continual wants in decent living, or are so given to waste that noth ing is to be expected of them in the way of contributing to the capital of the country. Of the rest, suppose one-half could with out the sacrifice of anything neces sary to comfort save on the aver age $100 in a year. That would mean an accumulation of $500,000, 000. The other half, we will say, arc well-to-do, many of them rich and accustomed to bo lavish in their expenditure on tntngs whi«h contribute little or nothing to either necessity or comfort or even rational amusement. Would it be too much to estimate that, taking them "bv and large," those of moderate means and those of great wealth, they could "put by" 1,000 a year on the average. That would look pretty big In the ag gregate and we will cut it down one-half. That would leave J2, 500,000,000, or, adding that to the small savers, ?3,000,000,000 in all. That Is a pretty tidy sum to he going into useful investment in the co*rse of a year, antf nobody suf fering in consequence. In fact, everything would be better oc cupied during the process and ac quiring better habits of both indus try and thrift, and a great deal could be done with tno capital saved. Through savings .banks and financial Institutions it 'would make its way into productive enterprises, strengthen the means of extracting wealth from the earth and transforming -it to the many uses for supplying human wants and meeting future needs. During thoj stimulated process of production,•'distribution and inter change, the cost of living would be kept down and the means of living Increased while thin transferable capital was supplying the place of that destroyed or wasted by wrar. When the conflict was over and the process of reconstruction was begun, the people of the United States would be in a position to take an important part in it. and reap a good share of the fruits. What Oae Mia Did on *4 a Day. In The American Magazine appear a pic ture and sketch of Julius Woods Christie, a $4-a-day man who In five years has bought a twelve^acre lot, built a Ane house on it with his town hands, bought an automobile, piano and a houseful of furniture and besides is supporting a wife and a baby girl. Following is an extract from the arti cle: When Christie was 23 years old lie asked a girl to marry him. One of the thlngfc cftiftlngfcnr upon a question Ilk? that in his mind was a place in which to live after th*" ceremony was over. He had a little money, somewhere around ?350, which he had saved sine.! he left high school. With the $250 he decided to buy a lot and build a house himself. He had not learned the build er's trade and had never constructed so much as a doghouse! The lot he wanted he secured by paying $100 down. It was out in the country, and there were twelve acr.'S of land with it. Two thousand dollars was the price, and the young man signed nn agreement to pay $12 a month until the debt was wiped out. He was then earning about .i4 a day at a toolmaker's bench, and he figured he could buy h|s lumber a little at a time as he earned it. Every morning and every night all summer long he worked, covering the six -mile*.to and from the city on a trusty bicycle. Thf frame went up, and by fall was boarded and protected by tarred paper. During the winter he worked inside by lantern light but ev ery day h* was there, hammering and sawing and boring. He marraged to buy lumber as he needed it, asking no credit. Along in the winter—times were dull—he was "laid off" at the factory and was placed in the trying position of having plenty of time to work on his house but no lumber to work with. The enforced idleness did not last ling, and with his first payment he bought more timber and tackled his building again. Christie has been working on his house five years. He has never borrow ed money or asked credit. What he has—his house, hie automobile, his piano and the rest of his attractive furniture-—he has paid for-some way out of a 34-a-day wage.

If they were the first to enter a house after 12 o'clock they were the "first foot" and received es pecial favor. In England the first footing parties were made up geherafly by the poor hoys of the village who carried a "wassail bowl" decorated with ribbons and received in return for their prof fered drinks and Rood wishes, cakes and cups of ale. But in Scotland as re cently as 100 years ago lij-st footing was a democratic social Institution, in which few were too proud to share. The principal streets of Edinburgh, It is said, were more crowded between 12 nnd 1 on New Year's day morning than at noon on business days. A simple ceremony, not yet obsolete, consisted in unbarring the front door as the clock struck 12 to let the old year out and the new year in.

WHAT OTHERS THINK Devils Lake Journal: The proposi tion to permanently locate the state capital at New Rockford instead of Bismarck, may not turn out to be such a joke as the capital gang think .it is. For the next fifty years New Rock ford will be nearer the centcr of popu- I lation than Bismarck, and by that time there may be demand for a new state, taking off tho western part, leaving Bismarck on the slate line. If the jealousy of neighboring towns could be eliminated the proposition to move the state capital to New Rockford would carry by a big majority. The percentage of voters in this state who i are particularly partial to Bismarck is mighty small. Not that they have any thing against the good people of that city, or the city as a city, but they are getting tired of the gang of grafting hogs who run it. It is estimated, roughly, that the direct primary costs the tax payers $300,000. Then the primary election is followed by a general election which costs about as'much as the primary. In the primary and general elections there is a duplication of expenses, such as polling places, judges and ele poll books, ballots, lighting, heati and food, and there is the double ex pense of the voters' official phamplet, as there is a pamphlet for the primar ies and another for the general elec tion. Forman Independent NeWSJ—New Rockford, already the eapitol of the smallest county in North Dakota, is not satisfied but wants to become the eapitol of the state. A movement with that end in view will enlived the com ing legislative session according to a current press report. Hanklnson News: few' 1 Bismarck Tribune: To wipe out the direct primary and have ohe elec tion instead of r. primary and a gen eral election is the purpose of the bill i which will be introduced in the next meeting of the Oregon legislature. Such a measure will be warmly sup ported and opposed with equal heat, but the bill will be Introduced on the grounds of economy. 11 Cll In the. proposed meaaure aspirants for office will have all tbe freedom in running that they now enjoy, but the winners of the primaries will be con sidered elected. Proponents of Jthe measure call at tention to the "get even", spirit which is one of the developments of the primary. The men defeated for nom ination generally threw their support to the successful nominee of the op posing party and not to the man who beat them for the primary nomina tion. This brought about the bitter ness and knifing within the parties which have been so common of "re cent years. As proposed, anyone, with the usual stipulation and regulations, can be a candidate as a party man* then when the votes are counted the agony is over and, presumably, the best men have won. Of course un der such a system electors receive a ballot on which the names of all can didates shall be printed, and tills will do away with a special ballot for each party, as is the case with .the present primary nominating law. Douglas Herald: New Rockford people are laying plans to purloin the state eapitol.
