Being published at the capital of tbe state It makes a feature of state news, of a semi official character, and is therefore particu larly Interesting to nil who desire to keep the ruu of state affairs—political, social aud business. SOME OF MIKE'S ADDRESS. A portion of the address of Fresi dent de la Bcre of the state press association follows. Mike's whole ad' dress is good, not too long, fitting and timely: In '.his growth of our state the number of newspapers published in her borders has Increased In the past twelve months from 1S3 to 225. In two years the number of post offices has Increased from 674 to 8tH—and a gratifying Increasing number of these offices are In charge of newspaper men. A few of the 22T newspapers are un fortunately more In the nature of what might be called "final proof traps" than reputable publications and a surer sign of the welfare of the newspaper interests of the state than is found In the mere swell ing of numbers is shown by the evident tokens of the growth and success of the papers that have toiled and struggled through the lean years as well as the fat for the upbuilding of their communities, by their enlarged advertising patronage, wider circulation :i|id Improved equip ment. In common with the newspaper Interests generally it is natural, but none the less a ratise for congratulation, that our associa tion, which ought by the way to include every publisher in the state, has pros pered in like measure. It still falls far short of the ideals at which it aims, but is steadily increasing in influence and value. Our organization is now in fact as well as in name the North Dakota Press association and the very representative gatherings of publishers who now regi^ur l.v attend its meetings are in marked con trast to the little band of enthusiasts who came together at Wahpeton in 189S, re vised the constitution and by-laws ajid re established the association on a firm foundation. Sinee our last annual summer meetiug we have had a second very pleasant and profitable convention at the state capital (luring the legislative session. These two Bismarck meetings have been so extremely successful ami enjoyable that they promise to and certainly should become a regular feature of the association. do not ask for and hardly expect in the future such lavish hospitality as the good Bl:marck people have showered upon us in tile past, despite nil the rush and con fusion Incident to a legislative session, and ill fact our meeting there woujd be apt to produce better results if attended with a little more work and less play. Following the Bismarck meeting came the i'acilic coast excursion. It will ever be a cause for deep regret to the president, that he can know only from second-hand sources how altogether delightful this trip was and feels a special debt of obligation to those fellow officers of the association whose good work i.Ie it such distill success. One name has dropped forever from out roll call since last summer. Charles E. Cox has been summoned by his Creator to th" further shore of the dark, mysterious lher. Why he. our good friend, uur cheery companion, should have had to yield up ills .voting life at the very threshold of a promising manhood we cannot know. We ••an only mourn his loss and give our truest sympathy to those to whom he was near est and dearest. The homes of two of our valued members have been irretrievably bereft by the loss of th*- beloved wife and mother at their hi id. To Messrs. l'lcrce of Grafton anil Iry«h of Wheatland our hearts have gone oi in the heavy burden of sorrow under which they labor. To return again to the brighter side or the picture we rejoice that our honored chief magistrate and erstwhile fellow North jMkotan. Pr. si.b nt Itoownclt. has con fcird such simi,(I distinction on our old friend -MaJ. A. U". I-Mwards by appointing him consul general at Montreal. We all love "The Major." that brilliant and dis tinguished Nestor of North Dakota Journalism and are more thai) glad to see I'''" hll! position of trust and emolument w«.l turned by a long and zealous battle tor his country with sword and pen. A worthy disciple of the strenuous life lias bee.i fittingly rewarded by Its first apostle. The department of the interior re quests 'he officials of land offices to warn people who may desire to file on land that has been temporarily withdrawn for irrigation purposes un der tlie irrigation law, that the with drawal of these lands is principally for the purpose of making surveys and that it is impossible to tell whether the lands will ever be irrigated or not. Attention is also called to the fact that should a homestead entry em brace land def-ired by the government in whole or in part for a dam, reser voir or canal, the government would take the land and the entryman would have no recourse against the United States. The sentence of Pinney of Minot to ten year: in the penitentiary at Slouv 20 Per Cent Cash Discount Fourth Street Falls was the limit that could be giv en hini. The sentence was probably more severe for the reason that Pin ney was an officer of the court, and ir. that capacity swindled many home steaders. receiving their fees as IT. S. commissioner and never making re turns to the land office. Of the work of the state press in upbuilding of the state, Editor Smal! of the Devils Lake Inter Ocean says: It has .lotted the plains with cities, and towns and villages that are as numberless as the leaves of the trees. It has built happy and prosperous homes on the sites of desolation and want. It has made the desert to bios soni like the rose. It has furnished the starving millions the opportunity to find wealth and plenty. Yea, it iias uncovered the bread basket of the world to feed the hungry of all na tions. It has converted the desert in to a paradise. Yea, the press has done al! this. How? By an earnest| persistent, faithful education of thej people of otlicv stales ami other lands! to the great advantages offered bv, NVrth Dakota. In a word, the press has boomed North Dakota into the front rank of prosperous slates. All the land agents, site Injomers, and land men tbis side of Kingdom Come could not in two hundred years have made this state what the press has made it in twenty. People always know where to look for the truth, and have always turned to the press for unbiased information. When the history of North Dakota shall have been truthfully written, the .part the editors have had in its making will be traced in letters of gold. Editor Tuttle alludes to it now as "dear old Venice." Tough on the "Deceased." The Grand Forks Herald in speak ing of the assault at Maddock a few days ago when one Selseth was kick ed and killed by Wesley Styles, says: June 30th the deceased made an un provoked assault on Mr. Style:, in the postofflcc, and the latter did not offer him any violence in return, but went 't the office of the Justice to make MUSLIN UNDERWEAR !lt Gowns S2.00 and 31.50 qualitie 81.00 qualities at Corset Covers, $1.00 qualities at 75 and 50 cent qualities at ... DEFEATED, NOT DISCOURAGED. ..nson Still Believes the Ball Team There Can do Things to the Bis marck Team. The Dickinson Press thus sizes tip the result of the ball game there last Sunday: Tli 3 Bismarckers are better base runners than our boys are at the pre sent time. But there are several plav orse in the Dickinson nine who out class the Rlsmarckers 011 the diamond in more ways than one, and the peo ple of this city stand ready to back the boys against all comers from the slope country.

Deceased follnvn-i him lo the justice's office and there used v'le language towards the justice and finally assaulted the justice. Mr. Styles, after watching the matter for a moment, endeavored to take deceas ed off, and thereupon the deceased let go and renewed his assault on Mr. Styles and kicked him and was about to do so again, whereupon M-\ Styles for the first time ofered any retalia tion, and kicked the deceased in re turn, only once, using no more force than was necessary to protect himself and prevent a repetition of his own injuries. Our boys were over-confident. They had been easy victors in the New Salem, Glen Ullin and Glendive games, and their defeat on the 12th will do them no harm. The Dickinson Base Ball Association will be incorporated within a few days and the way our business men are subscribing for stock shows their unbounded faith in the ability of the boys to win back all they have lost and a great deal more.
