Thd same outfit that prevented an election-In the Fourth -ward last fall and disfranchised 'a^hundred or more voters conspired this time to prevent aji election in the whole city. Will the voters remember this when they east, their ballots Monday?^ ir 1 &y-~- -j t-* •."•'•• ~, Those who have desired a change and reform in the city administration —thoBe who- have honestly believed it.for the welfare Off the city that Mr. Patterson, after six years in ittys mayor's office, should retire from ,j18ce—will have seen their. desires realized next Monday night.. But While this is true the voters "of this city must not lose sight of the fact that Mr. Patterson's dethroiument is being taken ad vantage of by the democrats and mugwump republicans—aid^cl by Mr. Pat terson and a few disgruntled friends—with a view to overthrowing the re publican. party in this city and county. Instead 6f being grateful for the honors and favors bestowed upon hiim by the republican party Mr. Patter son now joins the enemy and seeks to destroy the organization that has .givenhim position and standing—just because he has a personal grievance .against two or three individuals. The "republican organization stands for good government. It discourages individuality. -.• It is above and beyond the petty spites and grievances of individuals. Pattersonism and Winchesterism have been totally elimin ated from the present campaign. The republican ticket is neither a Win chester ticket or a Patterson-ticket. Neither of these gentlemen had the least thing to do with the nominations. No matter vrha.t the campaign liars 'and Thifd street organ taay say, the 250 republicans who assembled at the Atheneum know the facts—Mr. Donnelly, "candidate for mayor, knows the tenets, each other candidate, each aldefrmanic .nominee knows the facts and they aire reliable, truthful men. If the voter cannot and does not" believe the j^teteahents of such men thea none is worthy of con fidence. The staple truth is the republicans of this city have tired of per sonal "warfare and factional fightsi and they have united on a ticket believed to be honest independent- and loyal?to the city's interests and the party's welfare. 'INo g»d republican can have a good excuse for opposing it. Those who do oppose it may be classed with Register, the opposition candidate, who for many years has opposed the republican ticket and in the last cam paign stumped, the district for the democratic candidate for governor and-others on the democratic ticket.

The Indian school talk is mere rot. Devils Laikd wanted a school, Mandan wanted a school and Bismarck wanted a school. Our senators have been pretty good to Bismarck—have done all they could consistently for us—they have to represent the whole state—Bismarck is not the whole thing. Mandan got the school .and Bismarck is going on with the post—bound to be eventually worth more than all other institu tions combined. "Mf fndiain stehool 'is not1 a big" thing. It seem® narrow and small .for one to attempt to prejudice voters in this sort of way—even to the extent of misrepresenting Col. Little, who teas always been true and loyal to Bismarck. But that is where democracy—the minority party shines—in making trouble, creating prejudices and causing divisions in the dominant party.

GENERAL WASHBURN TALKS OF THE OBJECTS OF HIS NEW ROAD. Minneapolis ,March 30.—Sena/tor W. D. Washburn jrefcuraed yesterday from Bismarck, where he has been arrang ing for the resumption of construction work on his railroad, the Bismarck, Washburn & Great Falls, twenty-eight miles of which was constructed last year and which has since been in op eration. Wilton is the pr^ent north ern terminus of the road and the in tention is to ipush on from that place to Washburn, seventeen miles distant, during the present season, and it is intended to have the road in operation to Washburn in time to move the next •crop. Another improvement which Mr. Washburn has outlined for that sec tion is a free ferry across the Missouri at Washburn. This will enable farm ers of Mercer and Oliver counties to market their grain at Washburn, whereas they are now compelled to haul their grain by wagon twenty-five to fifty miles to the nearest market on the Northern Pacific. Mr. Washburn also intends to pro vide steamer service between Wash burn and Stanton, which is located on the Missouri river at the mouth of the Knife river, twenty miles north of Washburn. FROM THE JUDGE'S OlATES. Red Oak, Iowa. March 25,1901, Dear Mrs. Bartholomew: Your dispatch bearing the sad news of Judge Bartholomew's death just re ceived. You have my heartfelt sympathy in this your sad bereavement. You have lost a kind and affectionate husband, the bar and bench an honorable and worthy member, and his state a good citizen.

FIRST DAY OF THE OPENING OF THE FALL TERM OF THE SU PREME COURT WILL BE DE VOTED TO EULOGIES OF JUDGE BARTHOLOMEW. Upon the resumption of the work of the supreme court at Fargo, the fol lowing order was entered by Chief Justice Wallin: "Upon the opening of court a sug gestion was made by the Hon. Seth Newman, a counsellor of this court and now president off the State Bar association that it is the desire of the bar of the state to present formal res olutions to this court commemorative of the memory of the Hon. Joseph M. Bartholomew, late a member off this count, who departed the life March 24. "In response to this suggestion of counsel and with a view to facilitate its purpose this court in addition to an adjournment of the court already had as a mark off respect for the mem ory off the deceased, now directs that at the opening of this court on the first day off the next general term, at Grand Forks, the resolutions sug gested in behalf of the bar may be presented to this court and the same will be spread upon the records off this court as a lasting memorial of the deceased. At the same time ample opportunity will be given members of the bar to give expression to their in dividual views appropriate to the oc casion and by way off eulogy upon the life and character off our departed brother." The Barnes County Bar association has adopted the following resolutions: "Whereas, it has pleased Him, in whose hands are all the issues off life, to -remove from among us, and from those to whom he has even a devoted and' loving husband and father, our beloved brother and faithful friend, the Honorable Joseph M.

And be it further resolved that we hereby extend to his bereaved and sor rowing family our heartfelt symipethy and condolence in this their great 'affliction, and we' further respectfully request them to remember that our respect and admiration for our de ceased brother, invited, encouraged and enjoyed by reason off his upright ness and fidelity, Impel us to beg leave, to mourn with them their great loss.. We hold that in the greatest trials, Badness is ameliorated and sorrow is to some extent expelled by kindly sympathy, especially iwhree the cause arises from the loss off a man off such unequalled courage, conviction and character, .-and we therefore trust that the state wide: sympathy as ex pressed by the members of our pro fession will afford comfort and' con- vara® THE STRAIGHT KBPUB LIOAN i®CKErr **&*£*'*•* «./-.«4- solation to our departed brother's friends and family.

GOVERNOR WHITE NAMES EVER WAGNESS AS STATE GAME WAR DEN—MURPHY'S RESIGNATION WITHDRAWN. Governor White has appointed Ever Wagness off Devils Lake as state game warden. Mr. Wagness succeeds Geo. E» Bowers of Fargo, who has held, the position for the past four years. The resignation of W. A. Murphy of Neche as a member off the asylum board has been withdrawn. The res ignation was handed in shortly before the adjournment off the legislature, but the governor did not desire to ac cept it, unless it was insisted upon, as Murphy is a good man for the place, a representative republican, and was one of the most active county chair men in the last campaign. The res ignation has been withdrawn, there fore, and Mr. Murphy remains a mem ber off the board. HOW GEORGE ECONOMIZED. Correspondence of Grand Forks Her ald The newspaper boys of the state are having a whole lot of fun at the expense of George L. Townes, the late efficient secretary of the senate. George towards the last of the session took an economical streak, like many others whose names might be men tioned, and was bent on curtailing his expenses all along the line. The sen ate had voted him $50 for the work of completing and indexing the jour nal. In the past it has always been the custom to turn the $50 over to some responsible party in Bismarck and have them complete the work. But George with an eye for business figured that he could get the indexing done for $20, and the work completed for $10, thus making a saving for him self off $20 on the work—a mighty bright idea, too—but the time came for the legislature to adjourn, and George lefft on the evening train with the rest of the solons. Prior to de parting he made arrangements with his journal clerk to complete the work at a compensation of $5 per day. One day would complete all of the work on the journal, and Townes figured he would get out for $5 on the written work, thus making a saving of $25. Eight days later George returned to Bismarck and discovered that his fair lady journal clerk was still in Bis marck and the written journal not yet completed. Through some miscalcu lation the printed journal of the last day did not come back from the printer until, that time and the lady in question off course could not com plete the work. Townes was hot un der the collar when the lady demanded $5 per day for the time she waited, including Sunday, but he paid it like a ISttle man. But the saddest blow of all was when the fair journal clerk informed him that she had been very considerate with him in view of the fact that her friends had advised her to charge $6 per day for the service. When last I heard from Bismarck the job cost Townes $00 and there were yet three days' work "to be completed on the job. Townes is getting wise, but his experiences are expensive. Little Demimnd For Broom Cora Seed." An Inquiry among dealers in broom corn seed shows the demand has beein very small. Some ordere have already been received, but it seems that the farmers 'saved their own seed last summer and do not have to buy, ac cording to Orange Judd Farmer. An Illinois grower is of the opinion that if the present, high price for Indian corn Is maintained tip to planting time there will be a cat In the acreage of broom corn, as most central Illinois farmers prefer to grow maiee at SO cents per bushel than broom corn at the prices which have beat rallrur for some time. vorm THE STRAIGHT KlffiPUBfe LPCAN TTCKEfT. #1 '1, s?*a *~v« v**^ A l^l^e *15 njr\i "P i#Sf»|ss^PP FIVE CENTS SIT II Wis 1 PLOr Filipino Leaders in Europe Say the Capture of Aguinaldo Was a -v- .• r'v. ^'•.''••v'- Pr&uranged Plan Funston Was Not Acquainted With its* But only Carried Out the Pro posed Plan.

A prominent member of the Colony who is in constant communication with Filipino centers in Europe today said he believed positively that Aguinaldo's capture was a put up job of which Funston, however, had no iokling. The recent scheme of the American Philippine commission to es tablish. local government was communi cated to Aguinaldo. As to other leaders, all of whom agreed to accept the terms offered by the Americans, with the ex ception of Alejandrimo and Sandiego Malbara. Alejrndrimo held out for a better job than that offered, as goo positions had been offered Aguinaldo, Trias.and others. On account of Alejan drimo's obstinacity, he said Aguinaldo removed him from his command in the provinces of Panjasnan and Seamboles, appointing Baldomero Aguinaldo. Bal domero gave the Americans Aguinaldo's tetters appealing for more troops, which enabled Funston to penetrate Aguinal do's headquarters. Only Aguinaldo, lite 'iTOfe, &-!
