A full pardon, through a commuta
tion of sentence in the McKenzie case
has been signed by President McKin
ley and Hon, Alexander McKenzie is
a free max* again./ This will be wel
come news to the people of North Da
kota regardless of faction or party, who
have believed that the sentence of the
San Francisco court in this contempt
case was unusual and severe. Mr.
McKenzie was not convicted of any
crime—he had simply violated the
'order of the couirt—not maliciously or
intentionally but under a condition or
combination- of circumstances that
called for more lenient consideration
than given by the court of appeals.
As chapter after chapter of this cause
are written and have gone into history
it resolves itself into one of the mrst
celebrated cases in the history of Am
erican jurisprudence. 'Nor is the end
yet The court of appeals having ter
minated Mr. McKenzio's receivership
of the mining properties out of which
all this trouble has arisen, one of the
conditions precedent to the pardon is
the turning over to the court of appeals
of a certain amount of gold dost taken
from the mines in dispute and depos
ited in the Seattle mint by the re
ceiver, for judicial determination of
rightful ownership. But as to the
civil features the people of North Da
kota are not so .much concerned. Mr
McKenziete friends did not believe him
guilty of crime or intentional defiance
4f the court and their confidence has
not been misplaced. All will rejoice
that Mr. McKenzie is again a free man.

BAM APPLE CREEK.
THAT IS WHAT JOHN YEGEN HAS
DONE, AND THE REASON WHY.
John Yegen has built a dam in
Apple creek where it runs through his
farm north of the Lawrence bridge.
In speaking* of the dam he said:
"When I came here twenty-five years
ago Apple creek from source to mouth
was One succession of beaver dams.
Throughout the country till very late
in the season a goodly supply of water
lay in the various sloughs and lake
beds that are now dry and uncultivat
able. In the spring of the year and
well through the summer season con
siderable water stood -in the bottom
lands south of the city. Eventually
these beaver dams in the creeks about
the country were cut out, the beaver
killed and the numerous creeks ard
lakes drained. It is my firm convic
tion that if more dams were put in
creeks and sloughs and the spring
thaws caught and held that the .farmer
would have less cause to deplore the
lack of rain, as moisture will attract
moisture and in a few years the Tain
fall would increase wonderfully."
The dam put in Apple creek by Mr.
Yegen is intended to flood a large
acreage In one place making a lake
a half a mile wide and several miles
long. He "believes that every farmer
who lives along the areek should fol
low his example and' says that Dr.
Asanas, who has purchased the George
Marshall plaxfe, will build one there.
