IfrlLL FURNISH COAL GENERAL WASHBURN TELLS THE MINNEAPOLIS PEQPL® AS ...

J? and the consumer, and those rates wjere railroad-rates If the Northern Pacific company would make rates from the mines to Minneapolis as cheap as the Great Northern makes rates on this material from the mines on its line, Mr. Wash burn thinks the. coal famine will be greatly relieved. "We have improved machinery which will allow us to mine this coal much cheaper than the other compan ies," said he. "I expect tnext week to have a carload of our coal opme down, and then it will be put to a prac tical test. ... "It is a mudh "better coal than the lignite that has b.een coming to Minne apolis, much harder, and does not dis integrate so readily. In, feet, if kept under cover, it will keep as well a$ any coal. "We have now in sight, where we have drilled, a million tons, and ,.the supply is practically limitless. It'.% only a .matter of rates whether the people of Minneapolis have a coal that will .do much to determine the ijoa] question in'this section. "When our first carload ig^e^nef^l, intend putting it to the sever£»t 'tests.

"There are other ways it can be used, and I look for a bricking system which will make it practicable for loco motive purposes, and 'other use^ of that class." Mr. Washburn does not wish to say much about the coal of his district iin til he has made arrangements to get it to Minneapolis cheaply enough to make its sale practicable, but if the rate is forthcoming it is evident the public ilte&d not care so much if eastern coal does soar into the skies, 'v ii- WANT TIME.

Grand Forks, Sept. 28.—A number of the members of the state committee who were interviewed as to the effect the change made would have upon the vote this fall were of the opinion that the ticket would be materially strengthened by all the way from 1,500 to 3,000 votes. Secretary Jewell voiced the sentiment of the. entire committee when he stated in. answer to a query regarding the matter that he believed placing Major White at the head of the ticket under the existing conditions would be a great benefit to the ticket, as Major White would be in a position to make a personal canvass of the state and that was what a great many people were clamoring for in ail sec tions of the state. With a veteran of the civil war as a candidate for presi dent a veteran of the Spanish war a candidate for vice president and a hero of the Philippine war a candidate for governor, North Dakota has a com bination, Mr. Jewell thinks, that can not be beat by any state in the union. Lieut-Gov. Deyine, who is the can didate on the state ticket for superin tendent of public instruction, belifeves that the ticket is materially strength ened and other candidates who were present, including Thos. F. Marshall of Dickey, candidate for congress D. H. McMillan of Cavalier, candidate for treasurer O. D. Comstock of Benson, candidate for attorney general J. M. Devine of LaMoure, candidate for state superintendent of public instruction E. F. Porter, secretary of state C. J. Lord, candidate for railroad commis- sioner, were of the opinion that all the candidates on the ticket would be mu tually benefitted by the change, on ac count of the popularity of Major Whito and the reputation for integrity possessed' by David Bartlett, who will add strength to the ticket in all sec tions of the state. VW? THE HE&ALD'S VIETW^f AND OTHERS. Grand Forks Herald In. the pro motion of Major White the committee has followed a logical course. For some time gmve fears have been enter tained that tbe condition at Governor Fancfeor's health would not persUt him to perform the duties of his office dur U^wM#&4# y# ,rl$ -UjpTfV'sft 'W,Mrv% -1 uj w**! ,-vv4-*/Tf#^f3g FIVE CENTS ing another term, and his withdrawal has been quitetly discussed between himself and his friends for some time. There was some doubt as to the best course to pursue, $.nd one proposition. was to let things stand as they are un til after the new term began, when, if there were no improvement in the gov ernor's health, he could retire, to be succeeded by Lieutenant Governor White. The present action of the governor and the committee simply forestalls this action'-by a few montlhs. Mr. Bartlfett, the new candidate forsstsf lieutenant governor, is a lawyer of$&®! ability, and a man of excellent stand-H?. ing in the state. He is well fitted for^t the position of presiding officer of the]! senate, to fill which is tne principal duty of the lieutenant governor. The general openion is that bhe^~*r. ticket is strengthened by the change.^'* All of the candidates are now on the£$/ field, and in a position to do effective^ work, whereas before this change the|t head of the state 'ticket was unable toy I?-'" take any part in the campaign. Fargo Call: Major Frank Whiter**' will, as the repuhlioan candidate for governor, draw more votes from the apposition party than any man whom*'5"^'®'® the committee could have selected. His standing with the soldier boys who a went to the Philippines with him beau evidence, of his immense popularity Dave Bartlett, the republican nominee for lieutenant governor, was a happy thought on the part of the state centrals* committee. He is one of the cleanest handed politicians in the state, thor oughly equipped to fill the position. with credit to himself and ifche party. Jamestown Alert: The resignation of Governor Fancier was the principal topic of conversation in Jamestown to day. There were various views 6f the matter taken, some thinking that it was not to the best interests of the re publican party and others believing otherwise. It seems to be the gen eral opinion that Mr. Fancher will make his residence from now on in California and that his political career in North Dakota is at an end. BRYAN WILL TALK. SPELLBINDER BRYAN WILL BE GIN WORK IN THE STATE TO MORROW. Fargo, Sept 28.—Bryan will begin a busy Saturday by a 6 o'clock speech at Hankinson. Wahpeton will be ad dressed at some lehgth, and the party will remain at Fargo an hour and a half. If the weather is good'the ad dress will be made in Island park, oth erwise. two meetings will be held at the theater and armory. Leaving Fargo, speeches of from ten minutes to an hour will be made at Grandin, Hills boro, Reynolds, Grand Forks and Graf ton, before Mr. Bryan gets to Crooks ton, where he will speak in the even ing, leaving afterwards for Duluth to spend Sunday, with ex-Congressman Baldwin. The indications are that till ere will be a large attendance. It is understood that Bryan will de vote his time in this state to the dis cussion of imperialism and trusts. The latter is a subject that will appeal to the average North Dakota, and the leaders think- something should be said on Imperialism to offset the re marks, of Governor Roosevelt, who spoke almost exclusively oh that sub ject while in this state. There is some speculation as to how Candidate Hildnath for congress will agree with Mr. Bryan on imperialism. Mr. Hildreth was a lieutenant in Com pany during the service of the North. Dakota regiment in the Philippines and put in eighteen months chasing the 'Pino6. On his return he made a. speech on the Philippines at which he said all people, regardless of party, should uphold President McKinley in the contest with the Tagalos. Some people are wondering if he will reverse himself in order to line up with the official head of his -party. WRECK. DEATH IN A WRECK ON THE! SOUTHERN PACIFIC AT OGDEN.
