Sent to auy address, postage paid, for $1.00 for one year 50 cents for six months 23 cents for three months. The Bismarck Tribune la tbe oldest newspaper In the state—established Juue 1). 1873. It has a wide circulation and Is a desirable advertising medium. Being published at the capital of the state It makes a feature of state news, of a semi official character, and Is therefore particu larly Interesting to all who desire to keep tbe run of etate affairs—political, social and business. The present emergency which, in the opinion of the executive, seems to justify the calling of an extra session, only emphasizes the advisability of having a state board of control of our state educational and penal institu tions. Such a board would have avoided the unbusinesslike procedure of anticipating favorable court decision and legislative action, as in the case of the expenditure of something like $100,000 by the university manage ment, and the enclosing of a couple of buildings for the deaf school at Devils Lake. Such a board would make rational, intelligent and reliable reports to the law-makers, of the needs and requirements of the various institutions. It would discourage the duplication of educational work on the part of our state educational insti tutions and it would correct many abuses incident to the localization of the state institutions and effect a great saving on the taxpayers of the state. It is now held by the same author ity that advised the state treasurer not to recognize the validity of the in stitution bonds that he even has no right to place the school funds in the banks of the state—that such deposit in consideration of the interest re ceived is, in reality, embezzlement, and that under the law as it now stands the only legal way is to keep the cash in the vault in his office or some other "hole in the ground." If this is as good law as it is poor sense then Treasurer McMillan will be wanting a special session about as bad as the contractors who proceeded on the theory that the supreme court would O. K. the bond acts of the legis lature. The suggestion that trustees of pub lic institutions arrange with local capitalists or bankers to furnish funds for necessary improvements at public institutions, in anticipation of I appropriations two years hence, was! evidently made without knowledge of vi on of on 1 0 7 3 vi Codes. That section not only prohib its such a course by institution trus tees, but makes them personally liable for any amounts of money so expend ed, and also liable to the forfeiture of their offices. Reports from harvest of crops indi cate '.urns much more favorable to farmers of the state than were ex pected a few weeks ago. Fields which were expected to yield little or no grain are turning out fairly Even short straw is bearing heads that are of good length and well filled. The remarkable recuperative quali ties of North Dakota soil were never better proven than this year. The permanent school fund of the state of North Dakota seems to have an embarrassment of riches just now, and the investment of the funds is a S a if sible, to buy up state bonds, now held by outside firms. School district lands are bought as rapidly as offered, but they fail to furnish a sufficient outlet for the school fund. If the governor concludes to call a specia session of the legislature, the date will probably not be named until the executive has had time to hear from each of the members and be as sured of the co-operation of the legis lature in case it is called in extra ses sion. The calling of an extra session of congress earlier than November meets with so little encouragement It Is likely it will not be called in October as heretofore rumored Few Fall-Blooded Indians. Of the 85,000 Indians In the five civ ilized tribes—Cherokees, Creeks. Choc taws, Chickasaws aru Seminoles—less than 15.000 are lull bloods. MAY DELIVER PAPERS.

The postmas ter general issued a formal order to day authorizing the delivery of un pouched newspaper mail by baueage masters. The regulation is made In amending paragraph 5, section 14S8 of the postal laws and regulations so as to make it read: "Whenever delivery of outside news dealers' packages can be made by the regular railway iwstal clerk, be cause of there being no postal clerk on the train used for the transporta tion of such packages, the baggage men on the train will deliver the news dealers' packages outside of the mail sack, and while in his custody they shall be considered as mail matter.
