I). Dec. 2. oP) Pence in the Republican runks is the obvious objective of organization leaders in floating with Uu* insurgent question in the organization of tho senate and house at the fotthcoiuing session of congress. Senate Republican leaders intend that there shall he no fight over the Republicanism of Robert M. La Follette, and an invitation was forth going today to the Wisconsin sena tor elect to attend the Republican senate conference to be held Satur day. At the same time they have taken steps to assure a senate seat to Gerald I*. Nye of North Dakota, *n avowed La Follette supporter. NYKS VISIT PRESIDENT Washington. D. ('., Dec. 2.-- <4*> Gerald P. Nye, senator-des ignate from North Dakota, ac companied by bis wife, called to day at the White House to pay their respects to President Cool idge. ’1 he Senator and Mrs. Nye shook hands with the president and ex changed greetings, hut there was no discussion of the political sit nation. Olive Branch In Evidence While Republican leaders in the senate were shaping these decisions in conferences begun yesterday, oi» the house side the olive branch was in evidence in the plan to let the in surgents decide for themselves wheth er they wish to be considered as re turning to the party fold by their votes on organization of the house, before dealing with them in making committee assignments. Another test of “regularity’’ will be the vote on a return to the old rules of pro cedure. The insurgents forced amendment of the rules two years ago. The developments, with respect to La Kollette and Ny.e, were made known officially after Chairman Wat son of the Republican committee on committees and Chairman Ernst of the senate privileges and elections committee had visited the White House yesterday. It was later stat ed there, however, that President Coolidgc had not discussed the sub ject with his senatorial eallcTs and that he regarded the matter of deal ing with the insurgents one for the senators themselves to decide. La Kollo!te’s Status Explained Senator Watson also announced that before the meeting of the sen ate Republican conference Saturday, Senator ha Kollette probably would . Ije asked by the committee on com mittees to indicate whether he de sired assignments to the standing committees as a Republican. In indicating that they purpose to discourage any attempt by individual senators to raise the question of Mr. ha Follette’s party regularity at the Saturday conference, Republican leaders are known to take the posi tion that a line should be drawn be tween his stutus as a senator nomin ated and eleeted on the Republican ticket apd those senators who were lead out of the party a year ago for failure to support the Republican na tional ticket in 1924. Sortie Acted With Authority , ~ As to Mr. Nye. who expressed him self as “elated” over the turn of events in his ease, most of the Re publican leaders have convinced themselves that Governor A. G. Sor alie acted with full authority under the North Dakota law in appointing him to succeed the late Senator Ladd. The privilege and election committee is going into the matter conclusively, however, before an invitation is ex tended to him to attend the party con ference Saturday.

The cost of automobile licenses in North Dakota is based on the weight of the car, its purchase price at the factory, minus war tax, and its weight. In 15*25 the charge was 20 cents per hundred pounds, plus 10 cents per horsepower, plus live mills on every dollar of the purchase price. The charges for weight and horse power will be the same this year as last, but the charge for valuation was raised by law front five mills to 10 mills. Depreciation Remains the Same The depreciation allowed on the valuation of cars which have already seen a season’s use will be the same as in former years, 10 per cent for the first year, '45 per cent for the sec ond year and 40 per cent for every year thereafter. The state registrar force is hard at work getting out the schedule which will be used this year and expects to have’it ready by December 25. The 1920 schedule, showing the license fee for cars of all makes, will be in the bands of automobile dealers, no taries public and other individuals interested in the license fee schedule, by Januury 1. New Application IHanks Application blanks will also be ready for use by January 1. Persons applying for licenses should be care ful, Ingstad said, to use the new blanks instead of those in use last year. The new form is smaller and shorter than the old and is less dif ficult to (ill out, he said. The 192*> tags will bear red letters on a grey background and a receipt will be sent in the same package with the plates. This is made possible by a new device recently adopted by the registration department and will save about s<>,ooo a year in clerk hire and postage, Ingstad said.

In dications were for worse crop dam age in Argentina, and Liverpool prices were up five pence. Rapid fluctuations followed, due on the one hand to large scale nro fit taking and. on the other hand to waves of new buying whenever the market receded. According to some reports from Argentina, the black rust in wheat was spreading west and south, and crop estimates were being cut down. One authority put the maximum ex portable surplus as low as 112.000,000 bushels. Sharpest changes in price were witnessed in the December delivery, the market for that month falling 3c from initial top figures, but later regaining at times most of the loss.

NORTH DAKOTA. WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 2. 1925 POLICE HUNT FOR MURDERER ! OF MINISTER Body Found Late Yesterday in Untenanted Duplex in Minneapolis MISSING FOR A WEEK Fust Mortem Examination Shows Chloroform or Ether Caused Death Minneapolis, Minn., Dec. 2. (,V) Convinced that the R-\. Finite 15. Hirkelaml was murdered, police to day sought to account for the pres ence of the retired Lutheran minis ter. author and businessman in the u n tended duplex house where hi body was found late yesterday. Efforts of the authorities were di rected largely in a search for a wom an giving the name of Mae Reynolds, who rented the apartment November 'JO, saying she planned to open a massage parlor. That Hay she bought some second hand furniture and installed it. Dead t rom chloroform or some other subtle poison, the body of the lergyman was found fully clothed, his overcoat wrapped around him. stretched out on two kitchen tables over whigh had been placed a fold ed '|uill, a white bedspread and a sheet.

FERGUSON PRESENTS GOVERNOR’S SIDE OF HIGHWAY CONTROVERSY Says Texas Papers Are Distorting Facts—Cites Fact That Grand Jury Failed to Indict Gives Details of Contract With American Hoad Company Austin, Tex., Dec. 2.- (4*) A state- ment was issued today h.v James K. Ferguson, husband of Governor Mir iam A. Kcrguson, giving the gover nor’s side of the highway situation in Texas. The statement follows in parf: “For the past few weeks the op position to the Ferguson administra tion have been crowing in high glee over alleged frauds upon the state by the action of the highway com mission in letting contracts to the American Road company. Attorney- General Moody is being proclaimed as the man of the hour, because it is claimed for him that he has detected great fraud and corruption and that he has saved the state hundreds of thousands of dollars which was about to be tuken from the state by con tracts which, as stated by him, were made in fraud and executed in fraud. In aid of this propaganda and cam paign the daily papers of the state, largely unfriendly and hating the present administration, have by mis leading and-deceptive headlines and contortion of the facts, sought furth er to fix in the minds of the people that an awful and lasting crime had been committed and a blot had been placed upon the fair na’me of the state. , The Ferguson Side “T now desire, in justice to our friends throughout the state and mi answer to the Moody crowd, to pre sent the Ferguson side of this con troversy and let the people decide where the blame lies and what in-, jury the state has suffered. “In the first place let me call at tention to the fact that after five weeks of deliberation the grand jury of Travis county has adjourned and has found no bill against any em ploye or official connected with the highway or any other department of the government. “All over the state the daily news papers have either intentionally dis torted the facts or they have been too grossly ignorant to appreciate the fact about the contract with the SHIPMENTS OF OREONLAKES SET RECORD Season Just Closed Has Been Greatest in History of Lake Shipping MORE OCEAN CARGOES Movement of Northwest Grain Down the Great Lakes Slightly Smaller Chicago. 111., Dec. Lb <4>> The greatc-t season m th*> history of shipping on the Great Lakes has just closed, with a total touting' of around 5*8.000,900. due largely to bet ter conditions in the steel industry which caused a record total of iron ore shipments. The year included a slight hut no table expansion in deep sea -hipping, although the Welland canal, entrance to the Great Lakes, west of Ontario, is limited to vessels drawing 13 feet. 11l the deep sea cargoes was the world's greate-t electric generator, built in England and sent direct to its location along ihe Chicago river. Late in November, when railroad em bargoes affected Florida's building boom, a Chicago hotel furnishing compain sent two cargoes direct from the dock in Chicago to Miami, Fla. Michigan (Tty, Ind.. factories re ceived two shipments of day direct from Europe in Scandinavian ves sels. The port authorities of the Duluth district reported II foreign ships dealing from western Lake Superior ports tlii- year, eight of tile m Normei gans. Few Disasters The 15*25 season lias been remark ably free from disasters, only two small -hips being sunk, with a loss of a few lives. The ipieens of these inland seas are four oil burners, each over GOO feet in length and having a carrying capacity of about 10,0(1(1 tons. Henry Ford operates two of these huge boats in the ore trade. The movement of grain from the northwest and Canadian producing sections down the Great Lakes was considerably less this year than in 1924, which hold- the season record of 513.500.000 lui-heis. This, it was explained by'the Lake Cartiers' asso ciation, had nothing to do with the size of the crop, hut was caused by the slackening of export demand in the European and Near East coun tries which have uncovered suffi ciently from post-war depression to begin cutting down their grain im ports. The Largest Tonnages The three commodities constitut ing the hulk of the lake traffic were ore, coal and grain. The tonnage figures last year and this year on these weic: Ore. 1024. .Vi,000.000 gross tons, 1925. G 3,000000 gross tons; coal 1021, 20,000.000 net tons, 1025, 23,000,000 net ton's; grain 1024, 543.500,000 bushels; 1025, about 500,- 000,000 bushels. Receipts of grain at Duluth, the principal shipping port for both ore and grain and the principal receiv ing port for coal. were. f<n- 1024. 139,772,727 bushels, while this year the receipts were about h5.17».Gi0 bushels, of which 21,000,000 bushels are still in storage there. The Duluth port records this year showed 10,305 ships arriving com pared *vith 0,783 last year. American Road company. All I ask our friends to do is to quit reading the headlines and call for the facts, and 1 have no fears that the fair minded people of this state will be gin to learn that the persecution of the highway department by Attorney General Moody has put upon this state the greatest financial loss that any one man has put upon this state in this day and generation. The Facts “Now what are the facts? On April 2<>, 1925, the highway commis sion by resolution, accepted the prop osition made in writing by the American .Road company, the pro posal for the work of re-surfacing with asphalt treatment, certain des ignated state highways approximat ing several hundred miles.” The statement then recites the specific language of the contract pro viding for a second treatment of the roadways if necessary, and declares that the company was just starting th is second treatment when Moody tiled suit and had the company en joined from receiving further pay ments. Contract Not Completed “Notwithstanding the express pro vision of the contract.” the state ment says, “calling for the second course treatment, Mr. Moody alleged in his petition that the road company had completed its contract and that it could not be further required to do any additional work under the contract. He alleged that the price paid for the one course treament en abled the American Road company to make grossly and unconscionable profits. Let nie say right here that if the road company had completed its contract and the stute was not entitled to receive the second course treatment, Mr. Moody would have been entirely correct in contending that excessive and unconscionable profits had been made. But, if the English language means anything, then the American Road company was bound and was ordered by the state engineer to put down a second course treatment.” Above is the live-room liotn** of Gerald I’ Nye and family at Coopers .own.

Demo crats and Farmcr-l.aboritos of South Dakota in state conventions that con tinued until an early hour here to day. Outstanding in importance was the endorsement for renoniination of Senator Peter Norbeck and Governor < arl tiunderson by the Republicans, who smoothed out early factional ruffles which threatened for a time to disrupt their convention. The conventions’ endorsements tire considered the equivalent of election, although candidates may file inde pendently hi any of the primaries which will he held in March. Here tofore the convention candidates al ways have been nominated. Democrats endorsed t'. ,1. Gunder son of i lav county, a cousin of Gov i rnor Gunderson, for United States senator and \V. J.

Miss Daly, who last year was the Fa finer-Labor candidate for gover nor, was endorsed for congress tit the first district. For congress, the Republicans en dorsed the three incumbents, ('. A.

Platform promises of the Republi cans included support of the reor ganization plan of Governor Gunder son, urging a referendum on the law guaranteeing bank deposits, mean while rejecting a proposal to call a special session of the legislature to consider this matter. Other planks included opposition to the state's entrance into further commercial enterprise; repeal of the Richards primary law, responsible for the meeting of the proposal men; favoring child placement in re putable homes, and declared against further bond issues for the rural credits system until the present un settled condition of the credits is ad justed. Endorse World Court The Coolidge administration was approved, and endorsement was giv en a world court of international jus tice with United States participation under the Hughes reservations. In their platform, the Democrats denounced the present Republican ad ministration and approved investiga tion of the ettuse of inefficiency in state government; asked enactment of a civil administration code to curb expenditures; favored no further is suing of a rural credit fund except to refund maturing obligations. They ask reorganization of the rural credits system and a popular vote to determine if bank depositors should be reimbursed for money lost in closed banks under the hank guaranty law. A unicameral legisla ture was suggested, exemption from inconue taxes for salaries of $5,000 or less was asked, and an appropria tion asked from the next legislature to aid World war veterans in placing their claims before the proper boards.
