Did every match based on worldlj considerations turn out as charmingly as the one told about in Lady Russell's book, "The Rose Goddess," English social history would be very pleasant reading. According to Lady Russell, Lady Sarah Cadogan was married to the second Duke of Richmond in re turn for the payment of her father's gambling debts. Lord March, as the duke then was. was eighteen: the bride was thirteen. Immediately after the wedding Lord March went with bis tutor to the con tinent to make the "grand tour," and Lady Sarah went back to the nursery. Three years elapsed. Lord March returned from his travels with so un interesting a recollection of his bride that he was in no hurry to claim her. On the first evening of bis return to London he went to the opera. There he soon noticed that all eyes and lorgnettes were turned toward one of the boxes, in which, surrounded.by many admirers, sat a most beautiful young girl. Turning to his neighbor la the stalls. Lord March asked who she was. **You must be a stranger in London," the gentleman replied, "not to know the reigning toast of the town, the beautiful Lady March!" Lord March lost no time in going to the box and introducing himself to his bride. Thereupon followed a belated courtship and so happy a married life that the devotion of the pair to each other was proverbial. Round Oak Furnaces W at we have to say about them. I Mone is positively and continually saved by invest ment in a genuine good furnace like the ROUND OAK Being a powerful heater and built on honor, air tight, the Round Oak way—it will save its extra cost over a cheap furnace in a very short time eventually paying for itself. Of the proper size, correctly installed, it will last a lifetime in perfect condition. Think of that saving as compared to the construction that must be re paired and overhauled every year. It is the heavi est, best fitted, most durable, most economical furn ace made—Except None. It is the only air tight furnace made. It is the only one that will hold the fire all night, all day, ju*t as you want it, any speed desired, a feature worth dollars to every user. Will never leak gas, smoke or dust. Will burn success fully and economically hard or soft coal, lignite, coke or wood. If any one tells you three is something better than warm air heating by Round Oak methods, we will gladly show that they are mistaken. It is poor economy to consider the furnace question on a bargain counter basis me in a let us go he a in it on it Bismarck Hardware Co. AT Special to The Tribune. MAINDAN, :N.

FAIL WHEN RUN Manitoba Elevator System for Sale Phone Depart ment Has a Scandal Royal Commission's Probe Shows Extravagance and Graft Been General Special to The Tribune. WINNIPEG, May 29.—Americans coming into Canada where they ihave been led to believe governmental con ditions are so mudii superior to those in the United States are, upon their arrival in Winnipeg, now being giiven an insight into the manner in which •the Canadian government operates the affairs of its state owned utitilitdes wihiich does not, by any means, bear out the claims of the superiority of doe government of the great northern neighbor nor of its ability to operate a government monopoly of public ser vice concerns with anything like the results credited to it. Scandal Unearthed 'Although, Uhie scandals now being brought to light by a Royal1 Commis sion has shaken Manitoba business and politics to the foundation, practi cally nothing of it has reached the United States. iThe reason for this is that local pride has succeeded in sup pressing the condition from American newspapers. On of the standard sub jects of Canadian attack® on the United States has been alleged cor ruption in municipal state and gov ernmenit matters, and .to lhave a worse state of affairs than anything charged against American public officials brought to light at home was any thing but agreeable matter to have spread in Yankee newspapers. But so far as this instance is concerned, all theoretical objections to govern ment ownership have by actual facts been demonstrated to be sound. Forced Out Americans Pour years ago Manitoba went into government ownership by installing a line of grain elevators and practical ly forcing all privately owned tele phone exchanges in the province 'to sell to a government system which was being organized. The biggest of these plants, the Winnipeg Company was American owned and operated. The provincial government took a club, went after the Americans, and threatened to parallel their lines if rtlhey dM not sell. The Americans sold, but having to deal with govern ment agents handling other people's •money instead of their own, they got a million dollars or so more than any level headed business mam would have paid for the plant Then, having a number of other exchanges through out (the province, the state telephone company started business with a flour ish. From time to rime glowing .re ports were made of *he success of the system and all went well until some months ago when the telephone commission suddenly announced a tremendous increase in rates. Found Wholesale Graft A Ihowl" went up. HaW the towns to the province appointed commissions to see why Uie increase was .neces sary The tumult became so great that Premier Roblin appointed a Crown non^partisOajn commission to investigate the whole question. It is the many scandals brought out by this Royal Commission which is giving Americans tine chance to return it Canadians the many gibes wMch this country has for sa long thrown at the great republic to the south when the question of tihe conduct of .Municipal ami State affairs were under discus sion. Although owned by the govern ment for less than four years, the dis closures before the commission show thie entire system to be permeated with graft, incompetence and scandal. (As soon as the announcement of an investigation was made, one of the telephone commissioners resigned. One employee has been arrested on a graft charge and obher arrests are to follow. In every department was found scandal. Tihe puchasng depart ment admitted havimg bought at one time, $500,000 worth of supplies whdeh were not needed. The construction department told of running lines one day and taking .them down the follow ing day. One Mae 17 miles long was built in order that one customermight be served. Materials were wasted time was "killed." In the auditing department were found raised vouch ers which had been, signed in blank and afterwards filled in as the holder wished. The accounting department accepted without question such sums as were remitted for long distance calls by branch ma/nia*ers. In all the tJhTchare.e three years there liiaa been no gen eral checking up of ithe system. Alarming State of Affairs The scandal reached the Provincial Parliament and became the question of the hour. Member McPibereon, from the floor, charged that the people had been grossly deceived. They were led. he said to believe there would be from 1911 operation), a BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE. sur- plus of $300,000, Instead there was a big deficit. T. H. Johnson, another member, made the charge "the labors of the commission (hove 'brought to light an alarming state of affairs. A remarkable story of unsatisfactory finance and plundering by certain em ployees, has been made public." The comimiission has just finished its work and tits official report ia daily expected now and the genera) belief is tftat, because of the failure and scandals In connection with the past operation of tihe system, (this .report will suggest the retirement of the government from the public owner ship field. Burt, thanks to the crown commission, American have now had an opportunity of seeing for them selves the maniaer in which the North ern Government conducts its state closures which may come to light down in the States."

A very interesting session cf tlie city commissioners wais held Monday might at which considerable business was transacitied, chief of which, per haps, was the consideration of a plan for fixing of the city's waiter rate for the summer am amendment to the city ordinance was read for tlie first time voted favorably upon, which pro vides tihat an average of the amount of water consumed by every water user in the city for the months from October to April, inclusive, be figured and considered as an average of that used during the summer months, all of which be cftarged for at the regu lar rate 'them from the year's totai tihe average for .house use be sub tracted and that in excess, used dur ing the sumimer for garden, tree and lawn watering, be charged for at the rate of only 16 cents per thousanl gallons, thereby encouraging the proper care of trees, lawns and gar dens. 'Speaking of the cost of water. one citizen stated that in 1910 his radi'slhegf. watered wj'ith dirty water, cost 8 cents each, and his beets, wa tered im the same manner, came to $4.00 a peck, not figuring hlis time. This, of course, was exaggerated, but the commissioners believed lower rate3 for audh purposes would not come amiss. In 'addition to this, Tom Rodman was appoir.t&l official pounds master for the city. F. G. Tharpe, recently made superintendent of tihe water works, to assume duties June 1, was required to fur.nSsih bond, for $3,0'0O to insure faithful performance of his duties. W. H. Stutsman re ported the findings of the committee, L. H. Connolly and himself, appointed to look nto the taxes on the syndicate lots belonging to W. El. L. Dillloway, and reported t'hat they would probab ly amount to between one and two thousand dollars, but that, in view of the agreement made by the county commissioners some time ago to abate them in consideration, for the use of the fair ground, recommend that the city commissioners vote to allow the county commiissioners to ac cept $500 in full settlement, which tihey did.
