FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 18, 1914.
FODR TOWNS WILL
BE EXCEEDINGLY DRY
Stations on G. N. Cut-Off Across
TDevtyis Lake Reservation
Under U. S.
Devils Lake, X. D., Sept. *7.—While
all Nor.ii Dakota enjoys ccnstioutional
and statutory p-rornbitiou, there are
tour towns in this section of the star,e
that are doomed 'to be "hones and
tru'ty" dry. Hamar, Warwick, Tokio
and Narrows, located on the Great
Northern Aneta cut-off across the
Devils Lake 'reservation, are billed to
suffer a drought from this time on.
Uncle Sam, through Lieutenant, N.
A. Way of the Indian department, has
served notice tihat no more liquor can
be introduced at these points. Great
Northern railway agents have returned
all liquor on hand and it is understood
that ithe general offices of the railway
have issued orders thai: no more ship
ments of liquor be accepted for these
towns. The government 'rules that
they are located on the reservation
and that the shipment of liquor, there
has been a menace to the Indians.
In doing detective work at Warwick
Way probed into ilhe- d'eath of a strang
er named J. W. Brady of New Haven,
Conn., to find that he was killed from
drinking a liquor "extract" which was
shipped out by a Cincinnati firm who
sold It for the purpose of mixing it
with alcohol in the manufacture of
Liquor. The firm gave directions for
mixing, declaring that lihe product
•would,just as good as that which
is. shipped out by mail order houses.
Brady secured some of this and lived
but a few houTS after drinking it. Earl
Harris is held in jail at Minnewaukan
in connection with the case while a
full investigation is being made. It is
confidently believed that the Cincin
nati liirm is gullity of aiding in the il
legal manufacture of liquor, if the pro
duct turned cut could be termed that.
SHOOTS BIG WILD CAT.
Clarence Eklund is 'going to be very
proud cl' a nert- rug that he is having
made from the hide of a forty-pound
wildcat that lie recently shot in the
Bad Lands. Clarence, with his wife
and an auto party of friends, were
picking plums and they might have
been more nervous if they had known
that 'the 'varmint" was in such close
proximity. In fact, they might have
been "plum scared."
Mrs. C. F. Henk had just found a
trae -|hat was just loaded with plums
and waited far 'the other members of
the party to see the beautiful tree be
fore she commoncd plckin'g. Mr. Ek
lund started to walk around tilie tree
when the wild CEI:, which was on the
other side, sprang up and ran into
some bueihes. Clarence hurried to the
car which was near at hand and re
turned with hiis rifle. It took him
some time to find the caic, but when
he did he fired several shots in quick
succession, landing his 'game. It was
a fine specimen and Iilie hide will make
a very handsome rug.—Hettinger

MAIL BY RAIL.
Lines Hardly Satisfying
Winter at Alexander.
Alexander. N. D. Sept. 17.—-A move
ment is on foot to have the mail sup
plied to the po8toffices in McKenzie
county along the Montana Eastern
railway by Tail at an early date in
stead of by stage as at present. When
winter comes the mail schedule will,
no dfcwibt, be changed back to the for
mer time, that is it will leave Buford
in the morning and reach Alexander
and other points in the evening and
eome posfloffices will not get the miaiil
until the following day.
The freezing up of the river, storms
and the spring breakup will interfefle
with the mail delivery by stage. Train
service will give earlier mail, a more
regular mall and safer and more sat
isfactory service. Our mall service is
as good as it can be under the stage
system, the carriers are competent
and careful, but the system should give
way to one more up to date.
BISMARCK DAILY TRXEUH1
Secreltary of State Hall Makes
Recommendations in Biennial
Report to Governor.
There is a section in the biennial
report of Secretary of State Hall, now
on file with the governor, which will
be of interest to owners of motor ve
In his summary of tlve subject, the
That vehicles be required to carry
That demonstration cars be requir
ed to bear a distinctive tag, and be
limited in travel territory.
That the present discrimination
p,e ainst motorcycles be eliminated
arid that a lesser fee be charged for
That minors under a certain age
be not permitted to rperate cars only
under certain conditions.
That the law be strengthened (Sec.
11) to prevent evasion of the pay
ment of registration fees.
In every new law, after it has been
trste.i by actual experience, there
can be found provisions which are
not as lucid as they might be, and
thore are always revealed defects
w^ieh should be remedied and which
could ik havo been anticipated un
til the law was in actual operation.
We desire to call attention to a tew
of the more serious of these imper
fections that have come to our no
tice in carrying out the law:
For instance, there is a curious
conflict in the pro-isions of Section
5 and Section 8. Section 5 provides
that the secretary of state shall issue
two tags, while Section 8 says the
driver shall have "the tag of regis-
tration displayed on the rear of such
In other words we have one section
requiring the delivery to the owner
of a "set of two tags" and the other
section seems to ...require that but one
of the tags shall be used on the ve
hicle and on the rear only, of it. Min
nesota and other neighboring states
require that both tags shall be dis
played, one in front and one in the
rear, and some of our citizens who
have visited those states with their
vehicles and having but one tag dis
played, have found themselves in dif
ficulties with the authorities.
The opportunity for petty fraud is
here, too, and instances have come
to the attention of this department
where two men. brothers, partners in

without fail, without pain and without
trouble. This is why it is the biggest
selling corn cure in existence today. It
is now used by millions, because it does
away with sticky tape, with plasters
and cotton rings that shift their posi
tion and press clown onto the corn, with
salves that "raw-up" the toe, with "har
nesses" that cause pressure and pain,
with knives, razors and files, clawing
and pulling at a corn.

ployes of one concern, have made ap
plication for one set of tag3, and
each man has used one tag displayed

to each of $1.50.
The last sentence of Section
reads: "Provided that this section
shall not apply to dealers in demon
strating automobiles offered for
This is a privilege we find is much
abused. Many dealers will use a
"demonstration car" for any and ev
ery purpose, ether than demonstrat
ing it to a customer. This could be
remedied by authorizing the issuance
of a dealer's tag, to be used on cars
which are to be exhibited to a cus
tomer. It should only be permitted
to be used upon new cars and trips
should be limited to a certain num
ber of miles from the office or place
of business of the dealer. The tag
should be made transferable from one
car to another, within the year, if the
car demonstrated had been sold. The
tag should bear the word, "Demon
strator," the initials, "N. D." and the
year of issuance.
Discrimination Against Motorcycles.
The wording of Section 8, as it now
is, seems to discriminate against the
dealer in motorcycles. Throughout
the section the words, "motor vehi
cle." are used until the provision ex
empting dealers is reached. There
the word, "automobile," is used, and
it is apparent that motorcycle deal
ers are not accorded the privilege of
using their vehicles for demonstra
tion purposes without the use of a
tag. The language in this section
certainly should be changed.
In addition to this, we have con
tinual complaint over the f$e charg
ed motorcycles and the fact that it is
the same ($3.00) as that charged au
tomobiles. It would seem not quite
just that the motorcycles, involving
a smaller investment, and less wear
and tear on the roads, should be re
quired to pay the same registration
fee as the heavy and expensive auto
Requirements for Drivers.
Judging from the number of inquir
ies the department has had, we be
lieve there is a general sentiment
throughout the state for some provi
sion of law to regulate the age at
which persons may operate mofcr ve
hicles. This sentiment seems to
point to the necessity of forbidding
minors, or children under certain age,
from operating machines, especially
in crowded streets of cities. Persons
not of mature years in control of
powerful automobiles or speedy mo
torcycles invite accident and are a
fruitful source of danger to them
selves and the public.
Enforcement of Law.
We have found a most gratifying
spirit throughout the state, both

and we take leave here to return our
acknowledgment of the assistance
rendered from many such sources all
over the state. This spirit of co
operation with this department has
gone a long way toward swelling the
fund for the building of roads in the
state and toward increasing the num
ber of motor vehicle registrations
made in the past two years.
But there are two sources of law
evasion. One we ha' already refer
red to—the demonstration car. The
other is found mainly in those coun
ties bordering on Minnesota and oth
er states. This is a practice of North
Dakotans registering their motor ve
hicles in, for example, Minnesota.
They pay $5.00 for three years and
claim exemption from paying for a
North Dakota registration under Sec
tion 11, which provides that tran
sients from other states, who are
temporarily in this state, and who ex
hibit tags from their own state, are
exempt from registration in this
state. The law as it now stands
should put a stop to this practice, for
a North Dakotan cannot claim to be
a non-resident of this state. The law,
