Steps in Reorganization Plan
A large number of men and
women are interested in the
Commercial Club. Deep down in
their hearts they are glad it is
being reorganized along the most
modern lines. They are well dis­
posed towards the plan proposed
by the American City. Bureau.
They want to hear more about
it. They arc asking themselves:
"Why does Bismar£ need any
civic-commercial organization?"
"What can a modern Commer­
cial Club do for Bismarck?"
"Who is going to run the Com­
mercial Club?"
"How is the Commercial- Club
going to be financed?"
"Is the Commercial Club going
to be permanent?"
Through the courtesy of The
Tribune, these five questions
will be discussed, one. each day,
in these columns.
In the first ,place, why doe% Bis­
marck need a Commercial Club any­
way? Because every city needs ons
to do the things which the munici­
pality is not called upon to do and
to help the municipal officials do the
things that should be done for tha
town. Every city needs!an organiza­
tion of this kind. That is proven by
the fact that 3,000 or more cities in
the country are maintaining such or­
ganisations. Better still, the fact that
Bismarck herself has Been trying to
maintain a Commercial Club for
some years past shows the need of
one in Bismarck. If the city did not
need ^t, its most earnest and sincere
workers would not have tried tc
maintain one.
The Commercial Club in modern
form, and that is what Bismarck is
getting .unites the best thought of
he Community and translates that
into action. It takes in all
classes and creeds, gets the opinions
of individuals, cf groups 'and the
mass and having found what the city
needs, opens the way- to securing
them. This is called creating the
spirit of enterprise. Once a city ob­
tains this spirit, it will never allow
it to die out. The modern Commer­
cial Club, with its efficient way of
doing things, so divides the work
that no man needs give a lot of
time to Commercial Club activities,
and what time he does giv6, is so
prolific of result that enthusiasm is
quickly created. The accomplish­
ments of a well-organized Commer­
cial Club results in an immediate
and ultimate benefit to the com­
munity. The merchant, the whole­
saler, the manufacturer, the doctor,
the lawyer, the thinkers of a city,
all realize this. By making it a bet­
ter city in which to live, it attracts

Probe Poison Plot Revealed Hi
Arrest of Mrs. Klimikjand
Mrs. Koulik
(By the Associated Press)
Chicago, Nov. 14.—Matrimonial
agencies and undertaking establish­
ment were fields of investigation to­
day in the alleged poison plot of
Mrs. Tillie Klimek and her cousin,
Mrs. Nellie Sturmer Koulik.
The women were arraigned on
murder charges yesterday and held
without bail but the preliminary
hearing was postponed ten days while
the police and coroner's office con­
tinued investigations.
According to the authorities there
have been ten mysterious, deaths or
cases of illness from poison amonpr
former husbands, relatives and
friends of Mrs. Klimek, while Mrs.
Koulik is held as a suspect in five
alleged poisonings.
Detectives turned to matrimonial
agencies and undertakers parlors
when they were unable to trace the
life of Mrs. Klimek during a period
in which, police say, she was known
as "Mrs. Meyers." The search of rec­
ords was started in an effort to learn
if there was a "Mr. Meyers."
A third woman questioned in con­
nection with the investigation was
released. She was Mrs. Cornelia Ko
zal, a sister of Mrs. Koulik.'
Coroner's physicians have been
analyzing organs of two former hus­
bands and a' cousin of Mrs. Klimek
and permits were issupd yesterday to
exhume three more bodies, those of
two children and a grandchild of
Mrs. Koulik.

T|e interpretation of the vote" is

There is a difference of 39,531 be­
tween the majority of Nestos and
the minority of O'Connor, and Nes­

O'Connor received. The vote of
Governor Nestos was 7,300 more than
the vote received by Frazier, although
the few missing precincts will Tn*
crca: the Frazier total.
What Is Cause?
Was the vote a silent protest over
riemke's nomination, or was it silent
Crief over McCumber's defeat', or did
many of those who supporter Gover­
nor Nestos also support Frazier for
other political reasons? The differ­
ence between the majority of Nestos
and the minority of O'Connor appears
too large to ascribe to the fact that
many voted a straight ticket, in view
oi the fact that Mr. O'Connor's vote
is about 16,000 less than he received
for governor two years ago. It hid
be«?n charged by opponents that
dissatisfaction over the McCumber
defeat could not account for more
than 5,000 votes and some. I. V. A.
leaders declared that this feeling re­
acted in O'Connor's favor. While
Lemke's nomination was held unpop­
ular and was in the individual col­
umn the name "Nonpartisan league:'

many who declare he received more
votes than they thought he would re­
ceive in other words, that the dis­
satisfaction over his nomination was

The clean-up of the few missing
rural precincts on the supreme court

St. Paul, Minn., Nov. 14.—The po­
litical uptpaval in Minnesota a week
sgo is due to a large extent to the
alleged discriminatory attitude to­
ward Minnesota co-operative live­
stock shippers by Henry Wallace,
secretary of agriculture, R. A. Wil­
kinson, representative of Washington
county, said today..
Mr. Wilkinson charged that Mr.
Wallace showed discrimination in
favoring the exchange when he put
into effect federal rulings which gov­
erned the weighing, selling commis­
sion and the general rrianipulation of
the South St. Paul live stock mar­
The more than 400 of the fo-oper
ative livestock shipper associatioons
according to Representative Wilkin­
son, worked almost as a unit to de­
feat the Washington administration
and this resulted in the election of
Henrik Shipstead over Senator Frank
B. Kellogg.
Representative Wilkinson charac­
terized Mr. Wallace's action and
ftand in the South St. Pau^ matters
as "bull-headed" attitude. He fur­
ther stated that unless this attitude
is changed Minnesota can look for a
repetition" of the 'upheaval in the
elections of 1924.

SenatoJ Ladd in Statement
Gives His Views of the Re
suit of the Elections
There is little satisfaction to be
gained out 'of the recent electicn
by either the Republicans or Demo­
crats, Senator E. F. Ladd declares
in a review of the election, forward­
ed to North Dakota papers.
"Viewing the election results from
a national standpoint and tha speci­
fic registering of public opinion,
there is little out of the whole situ­
ation for the leaders of either the
Democratic or Republican parties,
to obtain much satisfaction," he de­
clared./ "It was simply a rising up
and protest of the masses against
the continuation of the present eco­
nomic order and condition of things.
Wherever the voters had a fair op­
portunity to clearly register their
opinion there was a clear-cut disap­
proval of the Harding administra­
tion and an emphatic stand against
Senator Ladd says that in Ohio
the people had a chance to pass on
both Harding and Wilson, and de­
feated a personal friend of President
Harding for governor and defeated
Senator Pomerene, a friend of Ert
president Wilson. He declared the
Lodge vote in Massachusetts was art
anti-Harding vote, that the vote
against Hitchcock in Nebraska was
anti-Wilson, that Reed's victory in
Missouri was a clear-cut victory over
Wilsonism ,that Poindexter was
beaten in Washington because he had
been too regular under the Harding
administration, and Brookhart in
Iowa defeated the Wilson candidate
for Senator.
Of Minnesota he says: "In Minne­
sota the people also tired of being
baadied about and took a terrific
wallop at both Harding and Wilson.
They elected their own man, Ship
stead. Kellogg-Harding, and Mrs.
Olesen-WiUon, went down to defeat.
This was another state where the
people had an opportunity to register
their displeasure with both Harding
and Wilson, and they did it in no un­
certain terms."
Got No G. O. P. Support
Senator Ladd, opening his state­
ment, said:
"I want to avail myself of the op­
portunity to congratulate the people
of the country in general and North
Dakota in particular on the splendid
victory of the farmers supported by
labor and the independent forces of
the state on November the 7th. It is
certainly encouraging to see how te­
naciously the farmers fought all
these years. No causc had supporters
more brave, earnest and devoted than
those who espoused the cause of the
agriculturists of North Dakota. They
have fought fronp conviction and
with all the zeal that conviction in­
spires. Their contests have been wa­
ged under great embarrassments and
against terrible odds, with open hos­
tility from the Democratic organiza­
tion national and state and the fail­
ure of the Republican national or­
ganization to lend moral or financial
support. Their program has met with
such signal success that their sister
states of Minnesota, Iowa, Wiscon­
sin, Nebraska, Michigan, Montana,
Washington, California, Wyoming,
have joined hands with the farmers
movement. Their cause has prosper­
ed most where their program has
been longest discussed among th«
people. During the next two years it
will be studied all over the nation
and thousands who are now luke­
warm will become militant support­
He congratulated Governor Fra­
zier, declared that "Mr. Townley and
Mr. Lemke will always occupy a
prominent place in the future history
of the country as the pioneers in this
great movement— they have laid a
foundation of a movement .that is
destined to sweep the country."
