ELLIOTT DELIVERS ADDRESS FITTING END TO RAILWAY PRES IDENT'S DAY AT INDUSTRIAL^ EXPOSITION. After Partaking of Appetizing Menu Guests Listened to Splendid Ad dress by Elliott and Several Excel lent Toasts—Governor Burke Offi ciates as Toastmaster. A most pleasing feature of the en tertainment in connection with the Industrial Exposition wag the ban quet at the Hotel McKenzie last evening in .honor of the officials of tie Northern Pacific and Great Northern Railways and other promi nent citizens of the Twin Cities and Duluth, who made up the party on the "Hill Special,' which arrived in the city at 10 o'clock yesterday morn ing. At precisely 8 o'clock the doors of the main dining room of the McKen zie were thrown open and within lo minutes more than 200 representative citizens from all section of North Da kota were seated at the banquet ta bles to do honor to the distinguished visitors from our sister state.. The large dining room, with its beautifully arranged tables strewn with cut flowers, the myriad of flash ing lights reflected from the plate glass mirrors which entirely sur round the room, the soft music float ing from the orchestra balcony, all combined to make the stranger feel that he was indeed a guest of the most progressive state in the Union ind the best little city In the entire northwest. As Mr. Jackson, a prom inent wholesaler of the Twin cities put it, "one might think upon enter ing«thls magnifcent dining room that he was being banqueted in Chicago, or at the famous Waldorf-Astoria." A table was arranged at the north side of the.room for the speakers and more' prominent guests. At this table were Governor Burke, President El liott of the Northern Pacific, Justices Flsk and Spalding of the supreme court, Secretary Macdonald of the Du luth Board of Trade, Judge Luske of Minneapolis, Kenneth Clark, presi dent of the Merchants National bank of Minneapolis George A. Brackett of Minneapolis, who was one of the trail blazers of the northwest in the early '60s A. H. Lindeke of the Lindeke, Warner & Sons of St. Paul Alexander McKenzie of Bismarck, C. L. Kluckholn of the Gordon ft Fergu son company of St. Paul, and J. N. Jackson of the Lanpher & Skinner company of St. Paul. These 12 gen tlemen fited into the big dining room first and were escorted to the speak er's stable within ten minutes the entire banquet .party of nearly 300 were seated, and then commenced the feast of choice viands and the flow of good fellowship The McKenzie had prepared an ap petizing menu, and the neat and well directed service was a source of much comment from the banqueters. As soon as the "cafe noir" was served and the cigars had been sup plied, Governor Burke, toastmaster of tfra evening, introducing the speakers, expressed the appreciation felt for the great interest that the railroads aond business men present were tak ing in te development of the state, and that it was to their interests to do to, as it was to the people of this great territory, because St Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth are our mar k-st towns, and said that it was not •hard to see what the final develop ment of all our 45,000,000 acres of rich agricultural lands would mean to our sister state. We can not do much developing without the assistance Of the railroads. They are great de velopers and great clvllisera. Ton will find civilization pushing out just a little in advance of the railroad, and the railroad following, bringing in supplies. There is one railroad In this state that has been very friendly to the state in helping us. with this exposi tion. They all have done a great deal in assisting in the development of the state, but there is one road in particular that has been very helpful to us in this exposition proposition. It has tendered the old Northwest ho tel for an Exposition building, and I am going to say to President Elliott here tonight what I said behind his back the other day, and that is to thank the Northern Pacific railroad in the name of the people of this state for what they have done in helping us with this exposition. President Elliott delivered an en tertaining address upon "A Mile of Railroad and the Country Store '1 His address complete is published on page three of this issue. Mr. J. N. Jackson of Lanpher, Skinner Co.. St Paul, stated that he. as well as Judge Lust, Mr. Clark and •the other Twin City business men present had their money invested in WAS CLOSING FEATURE r^ Minnesota and North Dakota, and that it was as much to their interests to develop the country as it was to the people of the state, and that he knew of no place wnere he would rather invest or where there were better opportunities for the future than right here in North Dakota. One fault found with the farmers was that there were many who were prone to be content when they had managed to get a fair return from their lands that the business men of this state should urge them to do better and improve their land until they received the returns to which they were entitled. He expressed great surprise at the banquet provided for them, stating that it would be a credit to any city in the land to be able to pull off a similar occasion in the -tianner that the people of Bismarck have done. Mr. George A. Brackett of Minne apolis a man who played an impor tant part in the early history of North Dakota, and rendered material serv ice in its early.development, related a few of his experiences with General Sibley in the early '60s near what is now Steele, N. D., at which time he gathered much valuable information relative to the nature of the country and the possibilities in store for the state. This was of much use to him a little later on when he piloted a party over the same territory and across the big bend of the Missouri for the purpose of examining it with a view to constructing a railroad. At that time he saw opportunities that would be thrown open with the com ing of the railroad and what the de velopment of this country would eventually mean to Duluth and to the Twin Cities. He told of the great faith which he had always had in North Dakota ever since the days he spent here, and how his enthus iasm over it reached such bounds that he refused to accept any remunera tion from the railroad for his serv ices. In closing, Mr. Brackett state* that he maintained great confidence in the future possibilities of the state and that it would see a very great development within the next few years. Mr. C. P. McDonald, secretary of the Duluth Board of Trade, spoke on what the development of North Da kota-meant to Duluth, and the great interest the people of that city felt in the advancement and prosperity of this territory. The entire country, he said, is today undergoing an era of crop improvement. The Duluth Board of Trade had much to do about a year ago with the organization formed for the purpose of investigating the great good done by the various agricultural colleges, agencies, associations and industrial departments of the rail roads in this line: This organization was formed with the idea of being a sort of clearing house or central agency to bring on activity along the line of crop improvement. Five thou sand dollars was voted to take care of the organization at a meeting in Chi cago, and the expenses of the com mittee for the first year were $12,000. There Is an awakening of the-entire 4 Ws know you will keep it up and can assure you that the business interests of Duluth will give you every aid and encouragement we possibly can. Shortly after midnight the banquet ers were dismissed and the visitors from Minnesota immediately repaired to their special train, being escorted from the hotel by the Mott city band and many citizens. The special left Bismarck at 1 o'clock this morn ihg. DR. FISHER RETURNS FROM EUROPEAN TRIP Dr. A. M. Fisher returned Friday night from his trip to Europe. r.D Fisher has been spending most of his time in the medical school at Vienna, and reports a very profitable summer. While in Europe the doctor attend ed the International Hygienic Exposi tion at Dresden. Germany. This is an exhibit somewhat similar to the exhib its" given by the Anti-Tuberculosis League, and is the exhibition of dif ferent stages of disease, the cause, the prevention and the cure of contagious diseases. The doctor said that this was one of the most excellent ideas that has ever been advanced for the use of the medical profession and the educa tion of the poorer classes. On his way home._the doctor went by way of Italy and says that the Asiatic cholera is raging through that country, but is worse in the southern part'of the peninsula and in Sicily, where, in Palermo, there are from fifty to sixty dying every dav. The cholera is not confined to Italy, but it is the worst in the lower country. The gov ernment is doing the best to stamp out the plague, but they are working with a big proposition. The shin on which the doctor returned was held up 'one day in the harbor of New York by the quarantine officials. »«..„*,„ „„J •»,»„ „-„«ein«„ i. in Miss Pearl Victoria, Vaudeville's a 5 2 5 ™t "Highest Class Entertainer, five feet of MINNESOTA AND AMESCLASH ON NORTHROP FIELD ONLY THREE OF LAST YEAR'S TEAM IN LINEUP OF THE GOPHERS FIRST GAME OF SEASON AMES HAS STRONG TEAM AND IS CONFIDENT THAT THEY WILL WIN University cf Minnesota Expects to Develope Fine Team Out of Raw Material, and Will Make Good Re cord Before the End of the Gridiron Season.

The stupendous stage setting and elictrical effects alone will be the sensation of sensations after the first performance on Monday, October 2nd.

HOMESTEADERS MAY LEAVE THE CLAIMS UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS Must Make up Time Lost Before Prov. ing Up on Claims, However, If They Take Advantage of Provision. The Tribune is In receipt of a let ter from Hon. L. B. Hanna, which set tles a point in regard to homesteaders taking advantage of the special act of Congress granting leave of absence from thei» claims until April 15, 1912. Mr. Hanna writes: There have been a good many in quiries sent me asking as to the act passed by congress and approved August 19,1911, which grants leave of absence to certain homesteaders. This act applies in our state to the the land districts of Dickinson, Minot, Willlston, Devils Lake and Bismarck, and reads practically as follows: That all persons who have hereto fore made homestead entries in cer. tain land districts (and then follows the districts in our own state which have been specified,) are hereby re lieve from the necessity of residence and cultivation upon their lands from the date of the aproval of this act (which was August 19,1911) to April 15, 1912. Provided that the time of actual residence during the period named shall not be deducted from the full time of residence required by law. I took this matter up with the gen eral land office to find out exactly how they would interpret the law and they reply to me under date of Sep tember 25, 1911, as follows: Hon. L. B. x^anna, Fargo, North Dakota, Dear Mr. Hanna: Replying to your letter of Sept. 19, 1911, you are advised that the construction placed upon the Act of Congress approved August 19, 1911, allowing leave of absence to certain homesteaders, has been substantially as follows: This office has held that tne act applies in all cases where entry was made prior to the date of the approval of the act, irrespective of whether residence was established, but that the time of actual absence during the period set out in the act would have to be made up by the entryman be fore he would be entitled to submit satisfactory proof. However, where the six months' period within which residence must be established had expired prior to the date of the ap. proval of this act, and the entryman takes advantage of the leave without first establishing residence and his entry be contested for failure to es tablish residence, the act could not be pleaded as a good defense in bar thereof. In view of the foregoing, the con struction placed upon flhe aot by this office appears to be the same as the construction set out in the pam phlet enclosed with your letter which is returned herewith. Very respectfully. (Signed) JOHN McPHAUL, Acting Asst. Commr. In a short speech which I made on the floor of the House in Congress, August 11, 1911, and which the Com missioner refers to in the latter clause of his letter to me, I made the follow, ing statements: "This bill provides that It shall ap ply to all persons who have hereto fore made homestead entries. This means that the people who have al ready made their homestead entries and are living upon their lands are en titled to the benefits of this proposed law. It also applies to those people who have initiated or who have filed upon land and who under the law have six months from time of filing in which to establish their residence They are given additional time to es. tablish th(feir residence until Afciril 15, 1912." Kindly give this matter publicity through your paper as an item of news and oblige me as many people all over the state are interested in it. Thanking you for your courtesy, I am, Sincerely, L. B. HANNA. MASONIC MEETING. There will be a regular meeting of Bismarck lodge No 5, A. F. and A. M. at the Masonic hall Monday even ing at 7:30 o'clock. There will be work in the M. M. degree.
