FROM EXCHANGES SCOTT IS CANDI DATE FOR AUDITOR IN GRAND FORKS CO. Grand Forks, N. D., June 16.—Judge Templeton has decided that the name of John W. Scott of Gilby goes on the republican ballot, as candidate for county auditor. Nelson's petition is thrown out because the electors who signed the petition failed to give their street numbers, as the law required. The following is the memorandum of the decision which will be interest ing to the state generally. "In my opinion relator's petition must be granted. I think it clear that the petition of Mr. Nelson is in sufficient. 1 hold against relator upon every proposition advanced except as to the sufficiency of Mr. Nelson's petition. The primary election law provides that every elector signing a nomination paper shall add his resi-| deuce with the street number, if any, and the date of signing. I think this language of the statute is plainly, mandatory. The word 'residence' as used in this statute must mean the city, village or township where the elector resides. It is admitted that nearly all the electors who signed Mr. Nelson's petition failed to add the name of the city, village or township where they reside. For this reason the petition must be held to be a nullity. This question seems to me to be strictly analogous to that of receiv ing votes in certain cities where reg istration is required and no registra tion is had and the qualifications of voters are not sworn to. The law relating to registration in cities is no more plain, direct and peremptory in its language, than in the statute re quiring one who signs a nomination paper to add his residence. Cur su preme court in the recent cases in volving the new counties of Renville and Burke held, that at the last gen eral election in Kenmare the entire poll should be thrown out simply be cause the election officers had failed to prepare a registry list. The failure there was principally that of the election officers. Here, in the case at bar. the failure is that of the electors themselves to obey the plain language of the statute. It seems to me that the reasoning of the supreme court in the Itenville and Burke county Report of Meeting of the Ladies' Anti-Fly Club Held June 9th & $ $ $ $ $ $ The minutes of the last $ meeting were read and ap $ proved. $• A discussion arose as to the eligibility of new mem S bers, the old rule being $ tAat no lady was eligible $ to membership unless she $ had screens on her house. S A new rule was put Into effect whereby any lady is eligible to membership of $ this club, but can not have $ the courtesy of the floor $ until she has put screens 8 on her windows and doors. 3 It was the unanimous S opinion of all that the NORTH STAR LUMBER S COMPANY Is the only $ place to buy screei«. Refreshments were then served and the meeting •$ adjourned. $ & $ $ essses $ $ NORTH STAR LUMBER CO. W. E. Gleason, Mgr. a NORTH DAKOTA TELEGRAPHIC NEWS Tribune Special Correspondents cases as to mandatory provisions in a statute applies with greater force in tlie case at bar. "The peremptory writ of mandamus will issue directing Mr. Anderson, the respondent, to ignore the petition of Mr. Nelson, to file the petition of re lator and place relator's name on the primary ballot as a republican can didate for county auditor of Grand Forks county. MILITIA IS BOOSTING (APT. FRANK HENRY Valley City, N. D., June 16—The following letter comes to Frank Hen ry, the republican candidate for sec retary of state, from an old compan ion in arms of his in the Philippines: "San Diego, Cal., June 8, 1910. My dear Frank: Here's good luck to you if you really want the added duties of secretary of state of the glorious state of North Dakota. No man is more worthy or capable and no man in the state has more friends. I would like to be back just to boost for you. and I know that the militia, without ex ception, will be with you as well as many others. Yours as ever, Sergt. Bill Edwards." WOULD STING CO. FOR RIGHT OF WAY Devils Lake, N. D., June 16.—It is said that the Soo railroad is experienc ing some difficulty in getting right of way in and near the city. Exorbitant and prohibitive prices are being ask ed for right of way and the matter of pushing work is being greatly re tarded on this account. The right of way agent of the Great Northern says that the highest, price paid for right of way on the line from Fargo to Surrey was $100 per acre whioh was for Red River valley land where the damage was great. The Soo is being asked as high as $300 and in some cases as high as $600 per acre fer right of way across farms near Devils Lake. The right of way agents are becoming discouraged with the prospects of making amiciable set tlements. Condemnation suits are slow and expensive, but it is possible that they will be resorted to. FILING FEE IS NOT CONSTITUTIONAL Grand Forks, N. D.. June 16.—Judge Templeton in a decision handed down today, holds that the fee clause of the primaries as amended by the North Dakota primary law originally provid ed that the county official filing for office should give a fee amounting to 2 per cent of the salary he would re ceive in the office. This was held to be unconstitutional. At the last ses sion of the legislature the clause was amended to read 1 per cent of the salary and it is this amendment which is knocked out today by Templeton. INTERNAL REVENUE COLLECTOR RESIGNS Aberdeen, S. D., June 16.—Herman Ellermau, internal revenue collector, for North and South Dakota, with headquarters at Aberdeen, has resign ed his position and W.
