Vote on the cloture motion was
preceded by an hour's debate in

motion, declaring that the para­

it was better that the senate adopt

A steady increase in the popula­

in a decision handed down by the phone company in connection with

requirements of the city will be dur
ing the next five years. It was esti­
mated by the company that the
greater amount of building activity
would "be in the northwest and the
northeast sections of the city.
The forecast which was based on
30 years showed business on an in­
cline this year, and steadily improv­
ing through 1923 and 1924, the peak
reached in 1924 and a gradual decline
begun in 1925 and continuing until
the end of that year when normalcy
would be established, In 1926 it was
estimated that conditions would fall
a little below normal until the lat­
ter part of the year when they would
become steady unless some unfor
seen condition should cause a fluc­
tuation.
How It la Figured
"Telephone requirements are based
entirely on the number of stations,
or telephones, which will be added
during the next five years. This es­
timate and forecast is dependent on
many conditions and probably the
most important of these is the fore­
cast of general business conditions.
"Every business is dependent more
or less on other businesses and the
telephone business is probably more
dependent on general business condi­
tions than any other one business.
This means that in order to forecast
the development of the telephone
business in Bismarck, it was abso­
lutely essential to forecast what the
general business
be. If

DISCUSS STRIKE
St. Paul, July 7. —First negotia­

here late yesterday at a conference
between union men and officials of
the Northern Pacific railway.
No concrete proposals were ad­
vanced at the conference, which was
held in the offices of J. M. Rapelje,
general manager of the Northern
Pacific.
Railroad officials sought to learn
whether the various locals of the
union here can effect a settlement
without reference to action of unions
on railroads elsewhere.
Union leaders, headed by R. A.
Henning, general chairman of the
Northwest district, declared that
such action would be unusual, and
probably prejudicial to union inter­
ests in the national fight, but did
not decline to give full consideration
to the suggestions.

Supreme Court Says It Can­

(By the Associated Presa)
St. Paul, July 7.—Minnesota's blue
sky law was virtually nullified by a
decision handed down by the state
supreme court today holding that
the state blue sky law does not pro­
hibit a person who is the absolute
owner of stock issues by a company
which does not engage in the busi­
ness within the state of selling its
stock or security, from selling such
stock.
The court's decision was made in
the case of' Walter J. Gutter son of
New York, against members of the
State Securities Commission who
sought to prevent him from dispos
|ng in Minnesota of 30,000 shares of
ifock of the New England Cereal
Company.
The securities commission held
that the "blue sky" law prohibited
Gutterson from selling the stock
without the approval of the commis­
sion and that he must defray the
cost of investigating the affairs of
the cereal company before such ap­
proval could be given, gutterson

against the British in South Ireland
up to the time the truce was signed
in July of last year. When the
terms of the treaty negotiated by
Arthur Griffith, Michael Collins and
their fellow delegates who met the
British representatives in London
last year became known he declared
his opposition to the pact and fought
against it in the Dail debates and in
public speeches.

London, July 7.—The proviso
Irish Free State government
substantial victory ovef* the ins
ent Republican forces in Dubll
believed to have taken a long/
toward establishing itself flrmlf
bringing peace to Ireland.
The ready response to the iJtiotM
al call. to arms is regarded as
81
couraging and as other prof
most Irishmen are back of thr 1i€w
government and opposed to the Re­
publican extremists.
Indications are not lacking, how­
ever, that Michael Collins and his
colleagues will need all the support
they can get to put down the re­
maining resistence which, according
to reports, from some .correspondents
in Difblin, is of importance bere.
These writers say the. strength of
the dissentionists in the South and
Southeast is greater than has been
supposed and declare the task of
downing this opposition is likely to
be slow and costly. In Cork county
and parts of the adjacent territory,
Republicans are reported to have the
field to themselves and to be engag­
ed in elaborate preparations to resist
any attempt against them by the
Free State forces.
It is predicted that the provisional
government will need to enroll sol­
diers to the full strength allowed un­
der the Anglo-Irish treaty and will
then have none to many for the job
of rounding up the guerrilla bands
acting under orders of the Republi­
can headquarters.
The arrival in Cork harbor last
night of a small squadron of British
warships lends additional color to
these reports, as it is believed the
vessels were sent in anticipation of
serious trouble in that district and
possible attacks on the British naval
station there.
Republican headquarters at Mal­
low is issuing daily bulletins, claim­
ing the irregulars are holding large
areas and making rapid progress in
several drections but there are no
means of sifting these or other re­
ports from the South and Southeast,
owing to the difficulties of communi­
cation. This applies also to reports
from practically all the provincial
areas.
The public is still kept guessing
as to the whereabouts of Eamon De
Valcra.
