He estimates that there will be 2,700 miles of roadway which the state will have to keep in good condition and estimates the cost of the work at $160.03 a mile. The mileage which the state will main tain in 1026 is estimated. Plomasen said, but the cost per mile is based on actual figures compiled during the last season. It is the present plan of the de partment, Plomasen said, to retain ' in the service those toad patrolmen who have shown themselves compe tent and to replace with new men those who failed to meet the depart ment’s requirements this year. Maintenance work next year will be made easier, Plomasen said, by the recent inauguration of a new policy with regard to graveling. Under the new plan stocks of gravel have been placed at strategic points by con tractors at contract prices. The gravel will be used in repairing the roads next summer.

STATE FARM PAYS $2,000 RENT IN 1925 Lane* Held in Trust fur 20 Years for Heirs of Man Who Died in 1012 Approximately s2,(Min will he pa d in rent this year hy Charles P. Haf ner, lessor of the state farm in Griggs county, recodrs at the state land office show. The farm which consists of three well-improved quarter sections, of laud, was acquired by the state oil the death of George G. Woodman in 11122. Goodman left no heirs ami if none appear within 20 years after his death the property will revert to the state. Meanwhile it is being held in trust and administer ed by the state for the heirs, if they should eventually prove their kin ship with the decedent. Leases mi Shares Hafner has leased the farm for the last six years and has proved a satisfactory tenant, Land Commis sioner Curl R. Kositzky said. As a result when the lease recently ok pired it was again leased to him on the basis of one-fourth share in all crops produced. The farm has improvements val ued at $8,90.0, Kositzky said, and is one of the best farms in the state. Shortly after Goodman’s dedth, he said, a man tried to establish a re lationship between himself and the decedent but the claim was disal lowed. Since that time there have been no other claimants. An Assumed Name Indications are, Kositzky said, that Goodman lived under an assumed name during his long residence in North Dakota and gives that as the reason why no one ever appeared who could prove relationship with him. At t'he time of Goodman's death he possessed, in addition to the farm, a large amount of person al property, which also was taken over by the state. $2lO Collected From Trespassers A total of $2lO has been collected by the state land department from persons who were trespassing on one section of state land in Mountrail county, according to a report file.d here by M. O. Steen, assistant to Land Commissioner Carl It. Kositz ky. At least a dozen people evident ly had been cutting wood and min ing coal on the section, Steen - re ported, and these were forced to pay thq, legal penalty of three times the average cost of the wood or coal which they had taken from the pre mises. Practically all of the per sons from whom collections were made were residents of Williams county, the section of land lying on the border line of the two counties. In his report Steen expressed the belief that he had been able to un cover not more than half of the per sons who had been trespassing on state property. llis work was aid ed he said by the fact that persons caught in the act of trespassing in formed on their neighbors and aided Steen in his work. TAX COLLECTIONS LAST MONTH GREATER THAN NOVEMBER, 1924 Tax collections during the month of November, this year, in Burleigh county were over hulf again as much as for the same month lust year, ac cording to County Treasurer G. L. Spear.

This increase is attributed by Mr. Spear to the better financial condi tions this fall and the fact that Bur leigh county had a good crop year and the farmers are getting reason able prices for their products. Some of the increase resulted, also, be cause of notices mailed. qut by Mr. Spear to all taxpayers. Police Restore Lite to I n Lint With Lung Motor Milwaukee, Wis.. Dee. I.

NORTH DAKOTA, TUESDAY, DECEMBER I, 1925 MINE OWNERS REJECT PLAN OF PINCHOT Hope of Early Sell lenient of Anthracite Coal Strike Appears Slight Philadelphia, Pa., Dec. 1. </P) — Governor PinehoCs plan for ending the anthracite suspension has fail ed, the mine owners having rejected it, and hope of an early peace today appeared slight.. A letter from the operators, sent to the governor yesterday, apparent ly left, miners and operators as far from an agreement as when their wage negotiations were broken off in Atlantic City on August 4. -Whether Governor Pirn-hot would make further efforts to bring t'he two sides together could n»t '%• learned. John L. Lewis, president of the United Mine Workers, said the* op erators’ attitude did not represent “one whit of concession in the pub lic interest.” The mine workers, he said, accepted the governor’s plan promptly because of the existing emergency. Statement Basis Unsound The decision of the mine owners to reject the eleven point plan of Governor Pinchot came after a long conference in this city. In a letter to the governor, the operators said it was impossible to find in his pro posals “the basis of a sound and lasting settlement." The letter revealed that the Unit ed Mine Workers two weeks ago had rejected a proposal for a settlement offered by the operators. This pro posal was for an immediate resump tion of mining at wages prevailing prior to the suspension, a five year contract and arbitration for resump tion of negotiations. DICKINSON STARTS MOVE TO CHANGE TIME Dickinson Press —Shifting of the Mountain time belt from Mandan to Beach or some point farther west will be sought by the Dickinson As sociation thut Central time may be came standard for Dickinson and other Slope towns in a campaign to 'be launched soon, it was announced this week. Directors of the Association con tend that the change would result' in a distinct advantage to this sec tion of the state which is on the eastern edge of the Mountain time belt and which does the biggest share of its business with Fargo, the Twin Cities and other large centers which operate under Central time. It is claimed that this is often a handicap in the transaction of busi ness matters because of the differ ence in time. It is also claimed that t.h'* adding of another hour of daylight to the ■business day, during the winter months and the closing of stores and shops an hour earlier in the sum mer months would not only be an economic savings but would give that mueh more time for recreation for those who are confined indoors during the hot summer weather. Beach has been suggested as the place for the change becaustf it is the end of a train dispatching dis trict and would be more convenient for the railroad company than Glen dive.

SIGNING OF LOCARNOPACT IS COMPLETED An Era of Peace Throughout Europe Practically As sured by Treaties London, Dec. 1. — (A*)— ‘Germany and her principal antagonists in the world war today signed the Locarno treaty and collateral pacts guar anteering peace in Europe and the submission to arbitration if any dis putes that may arise between them regarding their frontiers. The con trast between the signing of this momentous pact and the peace treaty of Versailles six years ago was marked in two respects. Today there was none of the mag nificence and glamour surrounding t.ho Versailles signing. The cere mony, which lasted only an hour, was notable for its extreme simplic ity. Arfd this time the Germans came of their own free will. They sign ed gladly, with smiling face, in strik ing contrast to that other occasion when the delegates of the reich ap pended their signatures under com pulsion with white faces registering a mixture of fear and anger. Optimistic Spirit Prevails Today’s ceremony was carried out in a spirit of optimism which was hailed as auguring well for an era of peace throughout Europe.

GABRIEL’S PREDICTION NOT WORTH CONSIDERATION, SAYS ROBERTS “Any prediction not accompanied by a logical explanation for its foun dation is not worth consideration and for that reason the prediction made by Abbe Gabriel should be placed with those of the other “goosebone” prophets, said Orris W. Roberts, who has charge of the 11. S. Weather Bureau activities in North Dakota, after reading the dispatch in last night's issue of The Tribune, which quoted Abbe Gabriel regarding a “bitterly cold winter for the north ern United States.” Gabriel is'' said to be France’s most distinguished meteorologist and professor in the University of Caen. “With all of the funds which have been placed at the disposal of the weather bureau.” continued Mr. Rob erts, we are still unable to fore cast probable weather conditions with much accuracy for a longer pferiod than two days, and even then upper air conditions of which we have no knowledge occasionally upset these predictions. “Voting People Beyond Paren la I Control,” Declares District Attorney New York, \.

Cf >l.l. Alt CAUSES STRANGLING OF WEARER By NEA Service. Twickenham, Eng. Thomas Par ker Cook, 2”-year-old chemist, was strangled to death by his own collar. “Accidental strangulation” was the unusual verdict returned at the coroner’s inquest. Cook appeared to have fallen off a chair onto a hot-water pipe, which had distorted the position of his head and caused his collar to choke iii in. Around the neck where the collar had pressed, the flesh was white. “During my more than twenty-sev en years in the Bureau I have made a special study of climatology, and have given niuofy attention to the phase of “periods" or “cycles.” Fol lowing the trend of “cycles” it would be absolutely impossible to foretell which particular year of a series would be colder than the one preced ing or the one following. By taking into consideration the general law of averages, the winter of 1925-1920 should be muvh collier than that of 1924-1925 and 192(1-1924, both of which were considerably above the normal, and it is hardiy probable that we would have three mild win ters in succession. “October, 1925, was the coldest of record in the climatological history of North Dakota, covering a period of more than fifty years.
