D., Jan. 16.— On Sunday, January 21, there will be held in this city a meeting of the officers of the Missouri Slope Bowl ing Tournament association. The board of officers is as follows: President—A. K. Moehn of Bis marck. 1st Vice President—E. C. Tobin of Mandan. 2nd Vice President—C. B, Winter of Bismarck. Secy.-Treasurer—A. F. Toppins of New Salem. The association was formed for the purpose of conducting the Mis souri Slope Bowling Tournament of 1912, which will be held in this city February 15, 16, 17 and 18. Teams will be entered from nearly every town of any importance in the slope country, including Bismarck, Fort Lincoln, Mandan, New Salem, Glen Ullin, Dickinson, Belfield, Sent inel Butte. Beach, Steele, and other towns. The tournament will be con ducted as all big bowling tourna ments, and there will be five-men team contests, doubles and singles. The various contests aire open to everyone. A large list of prizes is being pre pared, and there will be handsome awards to the winners of the three different competitions. A few of these are as follows: Loving Cup, donated by Brans wick-Balke Collender Company. Loving Cup, donated by Capital Citv Bottling Works. Silver berry set, glled with choc olates, donated by Copelin Candy company. Glass decanter and glasses to match, donated by Bismarck Bott ling Works. Cigars, donated by Fargo Mercan tile company.

The alleys are of standard regulation in every respect, with a clear run of 22 feet back of the foul line. They are in perfect condition, and there is every possibility that many high scores will be made. The New Salem bowlers wll be entitled to only one prize In each class in case they are high. This is done because they are bowling on their home alleys. Full information may be secured regarding the tournament by addressing the secretary. Edward Edgerton and Miss Lydia Bauer were 'married at the Methodist parsonage at McClusky on December 29, by Rev. J. S. Miller. The young couple will reside on a farm east ,of McClusky. DRINK ALWAYS BRINGS DISASTER Creates Craving Which Nothing but More Drink Will Satisfy" DRINKER MUST HAVE HELP Neal Cure Destroys Craving and Leaves Distaste and Aversion to Liquor. There may be successful men who are heavy drinkers, yet they are suc cessful in spite of rather than by rea son of it. The men who can drink and be successful are so rare in strentgh of character as to make them an unsafe precedent in considering the average man. To the average man habitual indulgence in intoxicants is practically certain to result in dis aster, It breaks down his nerve sys tem. It unfits him for business. He loses caste. He loses money. The habit brings sorrow to his friends and poverty, misery and deprivation to his family. The thing to do is to stop it and stop it now. Every suc cessive indulgence confirms the habit and makes it harder to break. A man finding himself on the down grade, (however, is constantly beset with a craving for stimulants which he in time is no longer able to resist, for constant indulgence not only creates that morbid craving but also weak ens the will power so that it is impos sible to resist. He must haye help It is such help that the Neal three day-cure for the drink ihabit extends to him. It takss away the craving— destroys it utterly—leaves in its place a distaste for an an aversion to liquor. It brings about this miraculous change in three days. This is no rash statement for it has been demon strated in thousands of cases. It mat ters not how long you have been drinking or how many other treat ments have failed. The Neal treat ment will cure in just three days. It is safe, harmless and positive. No hypodermic injections are given and no powerful or poisonous drugs are used. There are no bad after-effects. If you are afflicted with the drink habit and really want to be freed, or if you are interested in a friend or rel ative who needs treatment, write to the Neal Institute company for their free booklet giving full information. It will be mailed to you under a plain sealed envelope and everything will be strictly confidential. Address €11 Eighth street, S, Fargo, N. D. EQUITABLE FIRE EFFECTS BUSINESS (Special to the Tribune) NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 1012.—The destruction of the Equitable building by fire had a marked effect upon bus iness in the financial district. In the safes and safe deposit vaults of this building between $800,000,000 and $1,000,000,000 of securitie swere placed for safe keeping. A considera ble proportion of these securi ties were being actively dealt in each day, and their tempo rary locking up in involuntary escrow would have meant ser'ous complicat ions had it not been for the prudent action of the Stock Exchange Governing Committee. As it is, the marvel is that so great a catastrophe in the financial district could take place with so little positive distur bance in financial affairs. That it did not create derangement is excellent testimony as to the efficiency of mod ern financial machinery. The build ing contained a vast amount of rec ords and documents, the loss of which will prove a serious inconvenience to corporations, lawyers and indivduals, and yet the disaster will cause no serious loss outside of the destruction of the Equitable p-operty. The des tructiveness of the fire says Henry Clews was almost a foregone conclu sion when it is remembered that probably no building in the country contained such an accumulation of inflammable ma terial in the form of libraries, docu r- mis, furniture, etc., which had been accumulating for the past thirty years or more. The stock market apparently re quires some stirring influence to lift it out of present inertia. Good news has been largely discounted and un favorable news seems also to have, lost its effect. It must be admitted that the favorable nfluences are some what hidden and difficult to discover. Cheap money is perhaps the strongest support at present afforded the mar ket. Funds are abundant at low rates when compared with what good se curities are returning, even at present market prices. There is every pros pect that money will remain cheap and abundant for some weeks to come. The only important specific influen ces affecting the market were the fluctuations in Union Pacific and the unfavorable reports of earnings, offset on the other hand by the favorable reports concerning the United States Steel Corporation, which showed an increase during December of 942,000 tons in unfilled orders. There has been a moderate demand for bonds on January investment account, though the latter has fallen somewhat below expectations and conditions do not seem entirely favorable for the furth er placement of new Issues. Large investors are holding back, either for more favorable outside conditions or for better terms. Small investors are feeling the pinch of the times and as a rule have less money than usual for investment. Nevertheless, were con ditions more favorable new offerings would undoubtedly be put out and tak en with more freedom. Investors are wisely insisting upon safety, hence there is more than ordinary discrim ination in the making of selections, but high grade bonds paying small returns are generally neglected in favor of those offering more liberal suits. There is a disposition on the part of those having idle moriey on hand to invest temporarily in bJsh grade securities in order to keen their money employed until business shows symptoms cf revival. Thus indirectly duil business and idle money act as a partial support to security values. General trade continues quitt. Col lections are slow, and while conditions are generally considered sound, there is alight expectation of any material improvements until t'..e political sit uation is clarified, and the outlook for next season's crops can be somewhat gauged. It may as well be taken for granted that there can be no real revival in business unless the country hag a good harvest next season. So far conditions are satisfactory and reports from the interior indicate that throughout the Northwest the condition of the soil is excellent. The political situation is still the chief obstacle to business improve ments. Capital is undeniably timid, confidence having been impaired by the repeated attacks against numer ous industrial corporations and threats upon others. Our corpora tions and easily adjust themselves to the law when that is understood. They ar already adjusting them se'ves to requirements of the'Sherman law, and in many cases that adjust ment is already complete. The Sher man law. much as it has displeased some of our industrial magnates, has had no such deterrent upon business as the repeated attempts to oppress corporations by unwise restrictions, by oppressive taxes and by the mania for investigations. Capital has been struck right and left, and is conse quently sore and timid hence, enter prise lags, initative is checked and the number of unemployed increases rather than diminishes. There is no doubt the country is thoroughly weary of tactics, much of which doubtless practice for political effort upon the ignorant voter who does not and can not know the evil consequences of such methodr. The country needs a period of political rest. If let alone business will quickly adjust itself to new requirements and obey the law. Inquisitorial proceedings inspired by malice or for political gain should be s'rongly discouraged. When given a fair chancebusiness is ready to take a fresh forward movement Con ditions are generally sound because we have had fully a year of liquida tion and contraction. For over six months at least, if not longer, business has been conducted upon strictly con servative lines. There has been no excessive speculation. Although our capacity ig greater than consumptive BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE powers, there has been no general over production of manufactured ar ticles and there is no reason, as al ready said, why considerable im provements should not follow the cleaning of the political skies and the assurance of good crops. The international monetary outlook is becoming more interesting. Con ditions are much more comfortable here than abroad, which means in case of assistance being necessary Europe will probably look in this dir ection. Europe is already a consider able borrower on this side, and the ease of conditions here favors a re newal of foreign loans. Nevertheless, the European situation is not entirely satisfactary owing to international complications and jealousies. Russia. France, Germany and England each have their own interests to protect in various parts of the world, and the important changes which are taking place in China. Persia, Turkey. Tripoli and elsewhere are all signs of an unrest and progress that threaten a disturbance of former relations. In ternation politics are in a state of decided flux, and the foreign money markets are much more susceptible to g.uch influences than our own. New York is bound to feel the effect of any unexpected strain arising from such conditions, a notable example of which was furnished last summer during the friction between England and Germany. It follows therefore, that the foreign situation will bear close watching, particularly as the United States becoming more and more a factor in the family of na tions and cannot, if it would, any longer pursue the eld policy of isola tion. Whether we like it or not we are becoming an active participant in world developments and cannot es cape the responsibilities and interests which that implies. ANNIVERSARY€F GHENT TREATY IS CELEBRATED WASHINGTON, Jan. 16.—A plan for the celebration of the one-hund redth anniversary of the treaty of Ghent is pending before the Senate committee on foreign relation, in the shape of a bill appropriating $7,500,000 for that purpose. Senator Burton of Ohio framed the measure. It proposes that a com mission of seven members, all citizens of the United States and one of whom shall be a retired engineer, shall be appointed by the President, to be known as the peace centenary celebration commission. The mem bers of the commission, it is provided, Shalt serve for more than four years, without compensation. Their expen ses, however, would be paid out of the appropriation. To Invite Nations of World. The duties of the commission would be to aid in *he formulation and execution of a plan to celebrate the one-hundredth anniversary of peace among English-speaking peoples in conjunction with any citizen's associa tion of recognized standing either in the United States or in the nations of the British empire. An invitation to the nations of the world to join in celebrating the Ghent treaty anniversary will be extended by the commission through the State Department should the measure be favorably acted upon.

Was Called The "Biggest laughing Hit That Ever Struck Broadway" By New York Papers. Cheer up, everybody: cheer way up and smile all over, for "Seven Days" is coming, which is a pledge of mer riment unrestrained an entertainment without stint for persons of all ages, both sexes and whatsoever condition. Direct from the Astor Theater New York, with the unprecedented record of a third year on Broadway., with the entire brilliant New York cast and su ierb Astor Theater production, the forthcoming presentation of "Seven Days has features that heighten in terest in the for most popular success of the time. "Seven Days" has earned its wide fa vor from the thorough enjoyment it affords. It is exceptionally amusing, and as described by Amy Leslie in the Chicago Daily News is "one hilarious delight, a tornado of laugh ter, a freshet of fun, a hurricane of comedy." From the first moment to the last without bieak it. creates laughter, and in a clean, wholesome manner, untouched by indelicacy, which is one of the many exceptional qualities of this altogether excep tional play. Mary Roberts Rinehart and Avery Hopwood, authors of "Seven Days", devised humor without vulgarity, which is so infrequent in play making as to a merit marked commendation. Novelty, oirginality, ingenuity and humor combine for an excellent total in a comedy free from objectionable word or act. There is a wittily told and hugely entertaining story of a week in quarantine, with droll complicat-ong for high living New Yorkers and others not so ex alted, and with sentiment none the less ardent and ail the more engaging for its light display which is the twentieth century romance. It was a Boston dramat'c critic who said of "Seven Days," "It has humor enough to supply twenty comedies and make of each one an average success." Messrs. Wagenhals & Kemper pro ducers of the play, have established a standard of excellence in dramatic achievement, so that, taking all the things into consideration, there is an extra strong appeal to playgoers in the coming of a comedy that Munsey's Magazine called "the biggest laughing hit that has ever struck Broadway."
