COL. WM. F. CODY "Buffalo Bill" The Farewell Salute A TRIBUTE TO JuHNJUAWCETT NEWSPAPER CAREER OF FOR- MER NORTH DAKOTAN KILLED RECENTLY. Parents of the Deceased Reside in Grand Forks, and He Was Well Known Throughout the State. The .-Minneapolis Tribune contained review of the life of "Jack" Faw cett, who was* well known in North Dakota and who met a violent death in Chicago a few nights ago. The same is herewith reprinted. Fawcett was to have been married within a few months and this fact alone lends pathos to his story. His parents reside in Grand Forks at the present day, and he was connected with several of the different papers fc 1 aaDoyfi^itAtotfe in the eastern part of the state at one time or another. The Tribune says: John W. Fawcett was one of the best known of twin city newspaper men. He was at one time assistant jclty editor of The Minneapolis Trib une and later was a "star reporter" I engaging In such important work as I covering the legislature for the Trib une in the last session, and during the illness of the late Governor John son at Rochester had charge of The Tribune's service in the "death watch." He performed work at Rochester that, from a newspaper viewpoint was excellent. This was "Jack" Fawcett's biggest assignment while engaged in twin city newspaper work and that •aloHe^'woald nave-stamped him as a capable, first-class newspaper man. It was his report that kept The Trib une's readers informed of the condi tion of the governor's illness at every movement of its progress. His people live at 1541 Charles street, St. Paul. His father was in Mandan, N. D., last night, whither word was sent him. "Jack" Fawcett was a man who $2.85 just now will purchase a nifty pair of summer low cuts. In tans, oxblooas or blacks.

Mot only was be capable as a newspaper worker, but be served his friends with unselfish loyalty. Unkind words were not in his vocabulary. He looked upon .life with 8 healthy optimism that never wavered and made his companionship desirable among men who are wont to choose only the best and the most interesting of human fellowship. Mr. Fawcett commenced his news paper career in St. Cloud, where he worked on The limes and later was city editor of the Grand Forks Times. With the Bohemian spirit that char acterizes newspaper men, he desired to see more of the world and went east, working for a while on Norman E. Mack's paper at Buffalo. The west had an attraction for bim that he could not resist and he re turned to Minneapolis a little more than two years ago. During the last few months he had been employed as one of the writers for The Chi cago Examiner.

Major Burke is essentially and notoriusly a purveyor of goodness and fellow feeling. He has been through all the countries of Europe and associ ated with the rulers of all lands. He has been the advance guard for "Buf- falo. Bill" for many years and fori many reasons, principal of which is the fact that he knows how.

Design Was Made At Request of Rail way Officials and is Especially Pleasing and Remarkable. with twisted grain straw and wheat heads. The design is set on a panel of grain six by six feet. The trade mark, the well known "Grea^ Monad" of the Northern Pacific, is set in, like mosaic, with brown and red seeds. Back of this is a background of wheat, in which the letters "Northern Pacific" appear in a lighter grain. Below are the inscriptions "Yellow stone Park Line," and "The Scenic Highway through the Land of For tune," both done in different colored grains. The whole design is set off with scrolls done in grain heads and straw, and the effect of the design is especially pleasing and remark able. The design was made by Mr. Jackson at the request Qf the immi gration department of the Northern Pacific, and will be used by them' on this subject I felt it my duty to as a center piece for an agricultural respond when requested to do so by display. The excellence of the work and the originality of the conception is a tribute to the artistic skill of Mr. Jackson, and the completed de sign has aroused comment and com pliment from all who have seen it The National Business College of Crookston, Minn., are making a very attractive proposition to students en rolling during the next thirty aays.

BBUULxcOK DAILY TRIBUNE Mr. President and Members of the National iFremen's Association: Before presenting my views on this subject I beg the indulgence of the convention in a few remarks respect ing the conditions of firemen and fire matters in my own state of North Dakota. At the Lansing, Michigan, I convention last year I was very much interested in the discussion on "What has been the influence of politicians and political parties upon the efficien cy of the American fire service."

Y., BY SECRETARY H. L. READE OF THE NORTH DAKOTA FIRE- MEN'S ASSOCIATION. THEME IS DISCUSSED VERY ABLY AND THOROUGHLY. At the annual convention of the National Firemen's Association which is being held at Rochester, N. Y., Hon. H. Li. Reade of Bismarck, sec retary of the North Dakota Firemen's Association, presented a valuable pa par yesterday afternoon on the sub ject, "The Value of Building Inspec tion as a Means of Fire Prevention." Mr. Reade at the close of his address was the recipient of many congratu lations from the delegates assembled. Mr. Reade said: Politicians,e though th fast of th,e old guard-the really old hreman-be be paid or volun eer-to idsi vi ..

This money goes direct to the fiflre companies, themselves, except in a depart- in a in a a re haif 0 the mon ey is turned into a relief pension fund, duly incorporated, and the other half is covered into the city fire fund. You will readily see, therefore, that interest is kept up and maintained in the volunteer departmnts of North Dakota. In this connctlon, let me add, we have but two fully paid lire departments and on June 1, 1910, the state auditor paid to the 116 cities, towns and villages entitled to the benefit of the insurance tax, $19,743. 73. Not so bad for that state! This has all been accomplished by the firemen being In politics. As a member of the North Dakota house of representatives, your humble ser vant has had th honor to help bring about the present most favorable con ditions. Say, gentlemen, out in the 'cow country" the firemen first get right, and then we go after what wo want every fireman in that vast do main concentrates his mind on what Is needed, and we get it—or get the other fellow's political scalp. We have not yet placed on our statuto books a fire marshal law for the rea- J. B. Jackson of the state capitol staff of artisans, has Just completed a very handsome design for the Nor thern Pacific road. It Is the trade mark of the road, with inscription and ornamentation, all done with,son that with each attempt to pass grains and seeds, and the borders such a law efforts were made to take the salaries of such officer and his deputies out of the firemen's 2 per cent insurance tax, and we have de feated evry proposd measure that in any way encroached upon the fire men's insurance tax. But, Mr. President, I have strayed away from the subject assigned to me, though I feel somewhat incapable to satisfactory handle the question: The Value of Building Inspection as a Means of Fire Prevention, inasmuch as my personal experience in the line of flre fighting for the last twenty five years has been confined within the limits of a small city far removed from the place of our present meet ing yet I have been on instilled with the duty of a fireman, that when called upon to contribute my views competent authority, and when that request came, as it did, through our friend Smith, from our worthy presi dent, it truly came from competent authority. In this subject there are, to my mind, two words of vital importance, not only in connection with firemen, but in all branches of industry and business, commercial or otherwise, namely, Method and Interest. The value of building inspection as a means of fire prevention is, in my Judgment, of great moment for the Consideration of this convention. There is no question but that mad good has aiready been done, and yet the top of the ladder has not been reached in that direction. I know how much good it would do in my home city and state if we had good, competent building inspectors, cloth ed with proper authority by the state laws, and city ordinances, to inspect and compel builders to so construct them that they would be easy of access in case of conflagration, and by all means to allow as little in flammable material to be used in. the construction of the same as condi tions might warrant. looking to the protection of, not would be a credit to the state, cloth-,Kenzle he flre of all .thorityperson to compeln the attendance of any to a inquiry as to the [probable cause of any fire and, fur-1 ther, each city, town and village ieralle should have a competent building in- spector. Care should be taken to ie frame the laws that there would be no friction between the paid and vol- unteer departments, for in a state,ionr like my own the fire protection comes1(igure in far the larger measure from vol- unteer departments, for in unity there is strength. So much for meth od. An eminent writer on fire matters says: Great conflagrations appear to have no historic significance, but by them, and lesser fires, have been taught lessons for the protection of concentrated city property. These lessons may be classed under three heads, first: Prevention, such as rigid fire ordinances, proper inspection of new structures, wide and straight streets, convenient and numerous flre plugs, inside and outside faucets with affixed and convenient hose. Second, extinction, under which head comes all of the modern fireman's apparatus, electric alarms, and up-to-date en gines, hose that will not burst, train ed horses, and last, but greatest of all—brave, fearless firemen! The third may be called limitation, under which comes all the scientific meth ods for confining fires when it is as certained to be beyond control. Bu the use of gun powder, dynamite, axes and water the flre is kept from spreading and its territory limited and confined. Over ninety per cent of the fires you are called upon to combat occur in buildings. Is there any argument against inspection as a means of flre prevention, a responsibility charge able for so many of your grey hairs, when compared with the great num ber of human souls that inhabit burnable buildings? Is it not high time that we awaken to the question of prevention? The only answer is, Yes! Stricter building regulations are a prime essential in every city, this great loss to be curtailed? One I ay is that every building hereafter ¥"A -K"" K" tGTGSt *he a r,Htv. have not added much to the subject assigned me in the way of enlighten ment, but had there been time from my business to collect information, in the way of figures, I am sure that the amount in dollars saved in communi ties where there is a fire inspector, would be astounding to this conven tion, and would establish more strong ly than ever Jn our minds that old but true, saying, that an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. This, Mr. President, and Gentlemen the National Firemen's convention, is all I have to contribute on the sub- 1 ject assigned me, and 1 feel that it is but little in the way of enlighten ment. Still it is my belief that we, as a convention, should indorse the idea of building inspection as a means of tire prevntion. I thank you. HAY.
