Well, it's over. We've licked the
British again. We have celebrated
our independenc as befits a nation
of a hundred million people and un
measured wealth. We have forgot
ten the tariff and the trusts and
other disturbing elements of govern
ment and have given ourselves over
to the forgetfulness of everything
else in our desire to attest our patri
otism. We have filled the air with
rockets and the streets with red fire
and the noses of the less patriotic
of our citizens with burnt powder
and their ears with indiscriminate
noises. We have burned our fingers
and thumbs in showing the rising
generation how to explode a mud
can and just bow long to hold a
big cracker before tossing it into
the air. And, while it has its dis
advantages and its dangers, it's a
pretty good day after all, is Inde
pendence Day. It's about our only
midsummer festival. It comes about
at the time when the spring work
is done, the crops pretty well cul
tivated and on thai? way to ripen
ing, and before the work of the har
vest begins. It gives our communi
ties a day on which people from in
side and outside the, city limits may
eome .together for sports and. races
and a day of general festival and
enjoyment. All festival days, com
memorative of a worthy event, and
having for their purpose the keep
ing alive of a commendable spirit,
are good. There is such a thing as
working too long and too hard with
out stopping to rest and relax our
our energies. Independence day
has lasted without any perceptible
waning of its. enthusiasm for more
than a century, and a quarter. It
will last as long as our country lasts
with its free institutions and its lib
erties. For there is something deep
er in the day than the mere ebul
lition of the noise and the glow of
rockets and red fire. It is something
that can with difficulty be analyzed,
and it is that which makes the eyes
incline to water and the throat to
down the street. It is love of coun
try and of liberty and of home—the
love that makes a nation strong and
great and bound fast together, all
parts of it, with bands of steel. And
It is the patrotic spirit that lies deep
er than all the outward manifest
ations of gladness on Independence
day, and that will keep Independence
day bright with flags and bunting
and noisy with crackers and rock
ets next year, and a hundred years
from next year and a hundred years
from then. Be it so. For the nation
that joins in a whole hearted and
universal celebration of liberty and
freedom is a strong nation and one
that will live on and progress.
In the light of the criticisms that
have been passed by some of our
democratic and near-democratic
friends in this state as to the tariff
bill and its effect upon the agricul
tural, classes, of which this state is
mostly composed, it is interesting to
note two schedules of the tariff bill
for purposes of compariaion.
The farmers of North Dakota pro
duce and sell agricultural products
and buy largely of the products of
iron and steel industries.
The new tariff bill retains the pro
tecttve tariffs on agricultural pro
ducts of North Dakota—cattle,
horses, mules, swine, sheep, butter,
eggs, cheese, hay, onions, flaxseed
and barley.
The duty on oats and wheat is
raised five cents a bashel and on rye
fen cents a bushel.

tural products reduced.

The iron and steel schedules inl

In 120 items of this schedule, in
cluding the great number of the
items that must be purchased by the
agricultural classes, the duties are
generally reduced.

The Grand Forks Herald thinks
there is an opportunity coming in
this state for the formation of a
vegetable growers, association, that
shall take the same -place relatively
that is taken in the fruit business
by the fruit growers associations of
the Pacific coast, for the purpose of
making proper shipping arrange
ments, and attending to the details
of marketing vegetables which shall
be forwarded to a common shipping
point by the grower. The subject is
worthy of consideration, especially
when it is considered that North Da
kota soil and climate produces the
finest vegetables in the world* and
which would command steady prices
could the marketing be arranged
for. The Herald says:
The territory included in North
Dakota and northern Minnesota is
not a fruit country, but it can and
does raise immense quantities of
fine vegetables. Our potatoes are un
supassed, we believe, in the world.
Hundreds of tons of fine cabbage
were shipped from Grand Forks
alone last year. Beets, celery, car
rots and other" vegetables can be and
are grown in immense quantities
and of fine quality, and during the
past few" years tomato culture has
grown to be an important industry.
The opportunities for profit are great,
provided there are proper shipping
arrangements. But the individual
shipper is at a disadvantage. He
may realize little or nothing for his
of the market to which he sends his
goods, he may make mistakes in
methods of packing, or in failure to
keep his product from being mixed.
And he does not know much about
the man at the other end of the line.
Goods that are all right may be re
ported in bad order, and be ordered
sold to stop loss, and the grower
ma yrealize little or nothing for his
labor. There seems to be the same
need for a vegetable growers' asso
ciation in this territory that existed
years ago in the west for the fruit
growers' association. Why not or
ganize one. Let the growers of
vegetables get together, form an or
jganization, select men of good judg
ment and unquestioned probity to
duct handled so that they will re
ceive its full value. Why not?

to other states for the purpose of
passing a few days where there ex
ists the opportunity to gratify their
desire for the sport of angling. The
state of North Dakota has, unfortu
nately, too few lakes where fish
abound, and can be caught in suf
ficient numbers and with enough
sport to make the lakes sought by
anglers. Now that we have a state
fish commissioner and have begun
upon this business of protecting the
fish of the state and planting supplies
of fish- in good waters, we may de
velop somewhere in the state a re
sort for fishermen that shall rival
the resorts of some other states. Up
in the northern part of the state
there are clear, cold lakes, that sus

Of the kind best liked by fishermen.
But these waters, are being cleared
of the suckers and less desirable
fish, and will be stocked with 'bass,
pike and the better sorts of the
finny creation. The existence of good
fishing resorts In the state will lead
lovers of flshjng to travel to and fro
in their own state and become bet
ter acquainted with Its natural beaut
ies and advantages. We think it is
safe to state that not one person in
a hundred of those living in the
western part of the state know much
of the Turtle mountain country,
where the state's best lakes are and
where there are great possibilities
for the development of good fishing
grounds. The building of the state
fish hatchery and the stocking of the
northern lakes ought to do much to

One of the Jamestown divines adds
a letter to the volume of current
comment regarding the playing of
Sunday baseball in the state, and
notes in his letter the recent edi
torial in The Tribune with respect
to the relative rights of all people
on the Sabbath day. He makes the
error, however, of arguing that The
Tribune stands for a violation of a
state law, in its belief that there is
no especial harm in the enjoyment of
clean sports on Sunday, provided that
enjoyment does not interfere with
the rights of other people to pass
the day in peace and quiet. The Tri
bune does not believe in the setting
aside of the law or the violation of
the law, even though a law that
forbids Sunday sports may. not meet
with the approbation of a conside
rable number- of citizens. But it be
lieves that the laws should be so
framed that the greatest possible
amount of sane and wholesome good
shall come out of the Sabbath or any
other day and that each man mayfallen
have the right to obtain on the Sab
bath day the rest, recreation and en
joyment, spiritual, physical or men
tal, of which he feels himself most
greatly in need.

days. The officers of the association
are as follows:

Last Day of Vacation Proves Fatal
to Fargo Stenographer—Fell From
Row Boat and Escort Makes Brave
Attempt to Save Her, but Lost His
Life the Effort.
Fargo, July 5.—Frances B. Doer
ner, secretary of the Wheelock &
Wheelock Land company of this
city, was drowned with her escort,
while fishing at Clear Lake, Minn.
From the story that C. L. Camp
bell of this city, had received, it
appeared that Miss Doerner and her
escort, whose name could not be
learned, had gone out fishing Im
mediately after dinner. In some
unexplainable manner, the girl had
out of the boat, and her com
panion jumped in bravely to try and
rescue her. In the ensuing strug
gle, both were drowned. The whole
thing was seen by helpless observers
on the shore, but when the boats
got to the place, the bodies had sunk
and there was no means of saving
the couple.
Miss Doerner had been with the
land company here for a long time,
and had left on June 3 for her vaca
tion at Clear Lake, where her par
ents reside. She was to have re
ported for duty Monday morning at
the land office, and was probably
trying to enjoy the last day of her
outing to the fullest extent.
Several parties from Clear Lake
spent the afternoon in trying to re
cover the bodies from the lake, but
had met with no success. The
ter is unusually deep at the place
where the fatality occurred and
dragging for the bodies met with no

heretofore. It is already assured
that the attendance of this conven

pected that we will have' at least
150 new members added to the as
sociation during the year."
Fifteen Thousand Pounds Taken
From One Lake—Suckers Destroy
Spawn of Other Varieties of the
Finny Tribe—Good Work Being
Carried on By Commission.
State Fish Commissioner Main is
after the suckers now and Is catch
ing them, too. Within the past few
weeks, with the assistance of help
ers, he has captured 15,000 pounds
of this variety of fish with nets in
Fish lake and other small lakes in
the east end of Turtle mountains.
The sucker is very destructive of
the spawn of other varieties of fish,
and its flesh is not considered as
good as that of other varieties for
eating. It does not allow itself to
be enticed from the angler's bait as
other fish do, and in order to stop
the destruction of the eggs of other
fish Capt. Main proposes to get them
out of the way by catching them with
nets. The fish which he has thus
taken out have all been used, far
mers coming from many miles dis
tant to get them. The fish commis
sioner will take the suckers out of
Lake Metigoshe and other lakes dur
ing the summer by the same method.
The fish commissioner has also been
in other directions. He has
this season taken several thousand
perch from 3 to 5 inches in length,
and bass of larger size from Fish
lake and other lakes which are well
supplied, and distributed them in
other lakes. He has. also distributed
1,606,000 small fry of various kinds,
secured from the government fish
hatchery, in different, lakes and
streams of the state. He has the
foundation in and the piping also
for the state fish hatchery to be lo
cated at Fish lake. The building will
be equipped In time- to commence
operations very early next spring, but
it will be some time later before the
product will be ready for distribu
tion. The fish commissioner will,
make a vigorous prosecution of par
ties detected in violating the pro
visions of the new game and fish law,
by the use of nets, etc., and is al
securing evidence against a
number of offenders.
