Sculptor, Leonard Crunelle, Re
quested That No Inscription Be
Placed In Front.
There has bean placed upon the
pedestal of the statue in the capitol
grounds a bronze tablet, bearing the
words "Sakakawea— the Shoshone
Indian 'Birdwoman,'" who in 1805
guided the Lewis and Clark expedi
tion from the Missouri river to the
Yellowstone.. Erected by the feder
ated clubwomen and school children
of North Dak|ta, ^presented to the
state October, 1910."
The artist, Leonard Crunelle, re
quested that no inscription be placed
on the front of the statue as it would
detract from the artistic effect. In
compliance with his wishes the tablet
is affixed to the east end of the ped
estal, which has been evened for this
purpose. The tablet is a beautiful
piece of lettering in bronze, from the
factory of Paul E. Cabareg & Co.,
New York City, and was placed under
the supervision of Louis Carufel. It
is bolted into place and the interstices
filled with cement, making it a firm
part of the pedestal, a small tablet
bearing the artist's name and the
copyright date, October il, 1910, has
been placed at the base of the statue
beneath the papoose.
This completes the work of the
state on the foundation and pedestal,
except the placing of shrubs and their
care through the years, and gives to
the capitol park a unique ornament
unsurpassed in dignity of conception
and beauty of execution.

AT STATE CAPITOL
WORK OF DEPUTY REVENUE
COLLECTORS AND INSPEC-
Federal Department Has Hard Time
to Secure Eligibles, as Pay Is Too
Revenue Officer Merrifield is em
ployed at the state house looking aft
er corporation matters. Since the
federal government has the enforce
ment of the corporation tax law the,
work of the deputy revenue collectors:
and inspectors has been considerably
enlarged. These offlfficers are now
under the civil service regulations
and they have a life tenure of office,'
but the pay is not attractive and as(
a consequence it is almost impossible!
to get men for the service in the dis-j
trict comprised of North and South:
A good many take the civil service,
examination, but when placed on the
eligible list and receive appointments
they decline them on account of the
small pay and the great amount of,
work they are called upon to per-!
form. Out of five on the eligible list
in this district, three declined appoint-1
?r.ents. Deputy State Superintendent
of Public Instruction Parsons being,
one of them.
Mr. Merrifield makes his headquar
ters in Grand Forks and he is kept
oa the jump all the time. Some time
•mo it was found necessary to trans
far inspectors from the Minnesota to,
tlie Dakota district. Examinations
are held at certain times, a good
many applicants take them and but,
comparatively few accept positions
when tendered them. Mr. Merriffield
wio was a former Bismarck resident
and in the state service, will be busy)
until tomorrow night investigating
TO DIVIDE SCHOOL.
Primary Department at Will School
The primary department of the Will
school is overcrowded. It is almost
impossible' to take cane of the small
scholars and a plan has been hit upon
which it is believed will be satisfac
tory. The primary school will be di
vided, one-half attending in the morn
ing and the other half in the after
noon. This system will be kept up
until relief is obtained by the comple
tion of the new high school building.
