TH £J Sri t•tedis CUTTING OF SLOPE FROM OLD ^Dickinson, X. D., Jan. 4.—County iHYislon .in Billing* will make many ^manges during the Ursf six months I ho year.

It is probable that the number of deputies fbout the court house will be reduced. However, the salary change la not effective for a year, and the 1915 as sessors may discover a lot of new property. Much land that has gono to patent will be added to the assess ment rolls this year. The segregation of the south terri tory makes it necessary to redistrict Hillings into new commissioner dis tricts and also to fill commissioner appointments for the second and third districts, also assessors and u super intendent of schools. The appointing board will be the county auditor, Ira J. Wilson, the incoming judge, V. 12. PehrsHon, and the holdover commis sioner from the old lirst district, Aus tin Mead. The west Ion of redisricting is al ready creating considerable discus sion.- Those living along the Little Missouri river, in. the Had Lands ter ritory, are largely of the opinion that this should comprise one district and be represented by a stockman. If this division was made, there would bo two districts in the section east, of the river, one north of the Northern Pecific line and one south. Another set of people believe that the county should be divided cast and west, giv ing a north, middle and south dis trict. Commissioner Mead is now in District 1, the north territory. E. D. Peck has been serving on the board by appointment for the old middle district, while "VV. 11. Hanson still has two years of unexpired term for the old third, or south district. However, segregation leaves him entirely out of the present Hillings territory. D. M. Hart was elected for the second dis trict, but he is now in Slope. Mr. Fond was elected superintend ent of schools last fall, but he resides at Marmarth and therefore is in Slope. Karl McCullough has been looking after the office since Miss •Marie Aekerman and her deputy, Miss Fern Wilson, took marriage vows and moved to their farm homes in Slope. This gentleman is a candidate for the office, also Miss Mabel llopp, a popu lar teacher at Kryburg. The mill levy for Hillings has been reduced from 18.5 mills to 17.5 mills, which will be good news to those who pay taxes, the assessed valuation in old Hillings having been reduced finite a. little the past year over that of lUlU. Of course the school levy for the various districts may raise or lower the total tax. Tt will be remembered that Golden Valley was carved out of the western portion of Billings, taking most of the territory west of the Little Mis souri, two years ago. The final set tlement between Golden Valley and the parent county was affected but a few days ago, when it was found that the new county was indebted to Bill ings for some over $7,000. FOUR YEAR OLD COW MAKING WAR RECORD Kllendale, T., Jan. 4.—A peculiar trait in one of the cattle is cause of '•Qusidera^lc pleasure to Wnj. Poykko, residing southeast of Silv*rl*af. One of his herd made him richer by tho addition of two thriving calves. Dickey already enjoys tho distinction of beintr the banner hog county of i-North Dakota and that is beginning to mean something with the increasing acreage of'corn in thin state, and with a lew more animal* like the one pos sessed by Mr. Poykko our reputation as a catllc county Mill be well estab i s e The row Is a grade llereford, coming years old this spring, and is the dam of five calves, and all are living and healthy.

Poykko went out to do Hie evening milking and fonnd another heifer calf. 3lo was duly thankful for this favor, considering the bad crop ear, and separated the new arrival from the Older stock for safety. Next morning the man was feeding fome 2-year-olds which were In anoth er part of the barn and found a steer alf with the bunch. He told Mr. I'oykko of the incident and he believed the one he had .«hut out had escaped .omn way, hut upon examination found ihi calf whore lie had put it. He wa# soon convinccd that the new i\- found calf did not belong to any of Wie other cow? and placed the blame 'ipon the voting Hereford. In the meantime the cow chews her i ijd with nonchalance, seeming not to realize she is making a war record, not caring what the price of beef.

Not having the cash, he is laying out the amount in the i ounty jail at the rate of $2 per day. The charge was preferred by Deputy Came Warden O. P. Hrannick. who had previously made an investigation alonj the Little Missouri and found a num ber of beaver had been trapped and killed. Houser was found with the traps and entered a plea of guilty to trapping without a license.

Jan. 4.—The Great Northern hotel of this city was leased to M. It. Mayer, who has had tho management of the property since it was opened to the public several years ago. The, lease of B. A. Wilson expired Thursday night and Mr. Mayer now bccomcs both manager and lessee of tho property. In other words, from now on he will be working for him self, free to carry out his own ideas and run the business independent of interference from the Fargo office, a change which will be welcomed by the people of Devils Lake for it makes the institution a strictly Devils Lake af fair. Mr. Mayer is one of the best hotel men in the northwest. He knows the business thoroughly and he will make a big success of the Great Northern. Some radical changes and improve^ ments, all looking to better service, are to be inaugurated aa rapidly as possible. COMMISSIONERS WILL DECIDE ON STATIONS MandaJi, x. D., Jan. 4.— .\ 11 \V. H. Stutsman, chairman of the «tate board of railroad commissioners, stated Tues day morning that there would be a meeting of this body at Oakes on Jan. 13, and Fainnount on Jan. 14, for the purpose of determining whether or not new railroad de^ot stations should be ereeted at. these towns. For somo time past the citizens of Oake« and Fail-mount have been peti tioning the commission to look favor ably on their requests and it is the in tention of the members of the board to sco over the ground personally and de termine from their investigations, there whether or not new stations are needed. Fairmount Is the only town in the state to be touched by four railroads nd has a point station depot there for transfer purposes from the Northern Pacific to Northwestern trains en route from .lamentown to Aberdeen. Oakes hns a station but the citijsfns of that place believe they are entitled to a new one.

The shipment represented a value of an even $1,000, $700 of which was donated by residents of Adams county and $3rto by the st itfc committee of North Dako ta.

D., Jan. 4.—Superintendent of the ptfbltc BChools, S.- Henry Wolfe, gave notice today that he would retire at the end of this .school year and that he did not desire to be considered as a candidate to succeed himself. The announcement came as a distinct shock to his many friends in the city. Superintendent Wolfe has been at tho head of the schools for the last fifteen years. He is a man that has always given strict attention to his school du ties and has never allowed anything to interfere with his work. He has al ways kept out of political, social arid religioua squabble and has been the true friend of every boy or girl that has ever attended the public schools. His retirement will be regretted by parents and pupils allka. STRAY STOCK GETS FARMERS INTO CODRT Carrington, N. D., Jan. 4.—Two cas.g have come up in the county the past few days where stock hus been allowed to run at large and the matter has It^en brought up In court. In one n neighbor held some cattle for a 5T0 daniHuc bill, in the second case, a man charged with shooting a mule. The eases have called attention to the law in regard to roaming stock, also to the de.-irabillty of fencing farms and keep ing the stork at home. Not only will stoi-k kept inside fences preserve good feeling among neighbors, but one farmer reports to us that running Ktock over the country all winter spreads (juaek grass und noxiocs weeds o other fields. As regar-ds the herd law, the la«t legislature repealed that statute and in its place enacted a law making it un lawful for any stock to run at large in any county of the state at any time c. the year. The only exception ls that i County may vote to allow stock to run »t. large, in which case the owner of etck la not liable to any damage the stock may do. In Foster county, then, it is unlawful to turn stock loose and the owner of the «tock is liable for any damage done. The North Dakota statute regarding lino fence provides that each property owner must pay half the cost, provid ing the fence is used by both parties. In case one man desires to fence in a field, the neighbor would not be re quired to pay half the cost of the fence unless it was used by him. II. Jenkinson, near Glenfleld, was arretted the first of the week charged with shooting and killing a mule be longing to Dun McDonald, who swore out the criminal complaint. It seems that the mule was loose and Jenkinson flred a shot into It, from which the ani mal died later. .s .. .'

Mr. Thompson of Ward when seen yesterday stated that he was well sat isfied with the turn events had taken and that it showed he had strength be yond what had been attributed to him earlier in the game. His friends state that they are gtod the candidates have withdrawn and shown just where they stand, as it will give them a chance to matters in good shape before the caucus is called this afternoon. There ls no question but that it will be a straight republican caucus and the matter of factionalism will not be raised. It will simply be a fight for the best man and everyone unites in saying that whoever is elected to the speakership it will mean a united re publican party working In the house. Hendrickson Still in Fi0ht. Stalle Hendrickson of Burke, who has been a candidate for speaker since the primaries is still in the fight and was not one of the attendants at the conference. He has developed an un expected strength since the conference and stated yesterday afternoon that he was confident that when the votes were cast there would be considerable of a surprise in store for those who 1 bought, he was a candidate without strength. When asked to whom he would throw his support if it was found he did not have enough votes to win on the first ballot he stated that he had not considered that proposition as yet. All candidates who took part in the conference united in a statement to the cffect that they were making no effort to deliver the votes they had pledged, to any certain candidate, but that they had withdrawn from the race and that their support afld their Individual vote would go for Hanson of Barnes. Williams of Burleigh county, while he has not announced his withdrawal, may not Insist on having his name presented to the caucusus. Hjort of Adams and Hettinger, who was spok en of as candidate before the mem bers commenced to arrive here an nounced that his name would not be presented to the caucusus. From a visit about the lobbies of the hotels this morning it appears that there is a considerable division of sentiment as to who will be the strong er, Thompson or Hanson when the caucusus is called. The Thompson forces evidently have something they arc keeping for an eleventh hour ar gument and the Hanson adherents are expressing supreme confidence as to the final outcome of the tight, it is likely that the caucusus will be call ed later this afternoon. Try to Organize the Senate. It developed late Saturday after noon that there was an effort on foot to organize the senate and take from l.ieutenant Governor Fraine the pow er to appoint the committees. It will eventually result in a tight for the control of the committee on rules. Mr. Fraine stated that if the rules in ef fect at the last session were adopted -without change that it certainly gives him the right to appoint the commit tees' He says that he has been work ing on the matter for some time and that he would make an effort to ap point .such men on the important com mittees as would be able to best take care of the work of the session. He has considered in his tentative choicc, the fitness of the men for the place, their geographical location and the amount of work that is to be done. He also said that if he is allowed to carry out his plan he will be w Uling to shoulder the entire responsibility of thp committee work, but that if the rules were changed so that the ap pointment would be up to a commit tee he would not accept any of the re sponsibility. He stated that it was Immaterial which way it went, but made it clear that unless there, was a change in the rules he would take the initiative in the appointment of the committees. This will mean, as w&s stated above, that the flsht lor the organization of the senate will really be a fight for control of the committee on rules. The old rules will be adopted for temporary work and the fight will start when it comes to adopting permanent rules. "fhat will mean a treat of strength right at the jump off.

Many Looking for "Job." The trains of the last two days 1t5v6 brought many applicants for positions in both the house and the senate.There are a number of familiar faces among the members of the "third house" men who have held places for several ses sions and who are looked upon as al most as' much of a necessity aa the members themselves. 1 Hurt Ash of Dawson who was sargent at arms in the house during the last session has been on tho job for several days interviewing the mem bers and is an applicant for re-ap pointment. Wm. Gill of Wheatland, sargent at arms in the senate la also here and would like to hold down the same place for another term. The postmastership in both the house and the senate seem to bo favorite places and there are a num ber of applicants. Bismarck boys who want to be pages in either the house or the senate are busy distributing their cards about the hotel lobbies and there arc a number of men who are looking for various clerkships who have arrived early on the scene of action.

What Military Pets Have Don* in the Big Conflict. Tit Bits: The news that the $et goat of the second battalion of the Welsh regiment has been killed in the Battle of Aisne reveals the fact that the soldiers _are taking their regi mental mascots to the front, Thia is a common practice in war, as each regiment regards its pet as a luck bringer, and thus it is only natural •that that animal should accompany the soldiers to battle. Kegimental pets on many occasions have distinguished themselves on the battlefield. In olio instance a regimental dog proved to be one of the few survivors of .'a terrible British disaster when tjtu famous Sixty-sixth were cut up in tie Battle of Maiwand. Valiant Bob, tjpo pet of the regiment sat and howfed dismally in the center of the rapf#l dwindling square where the Britlshiis stood back to back lighting against hordes of Afghans. When every itjtn had fallen Bob crawled over the bodlfs of the dead, and although woundetpln the leg, traveled over ninety milcsfof country by himself and eventu-Sfly found the main army. 1, tho tews, rmlhg In th^ battle of Inkerman, Sand, terrier mascot of the Royal rcngln thoroughly enjoyed himself by runt after the Russians and snapplngs«at their legs. He was eventually f"un through by the bayonet of an exaspfer ated Russian, but Sandy recovered, and had a special medal struck for Htm by the colonel of the regiment at tiho conclusion of the campaign. Bruce, an enormous mastifT who dis played similar fighting tactic* in the battle of Kandahar, met with a ljkss fortunate fate and was killed and bfir— led on tho historic battlefield. A poodle who hobbled about on three legs has been for some years a famlitar spectacle at Chelsea barracks. Tho guards captured the animal in the bat— tl" of V'ittoria and adopted him as tho regimental pet. He went through tho campaign with the regiment, but had two legs broken by a «hot, though Ye fusing on one occasion to remain in t^e rear when the charge was soundffd. but dashed to the front of the gallop ing horses. At the battle of Tel-el-Keblr a pri vate of an Irish regiment went into the fight with a little black kitten conceal ed in his tunic as a mascot.
