Governor Series was the first distinguished can didate to put in an appearance yesterday and when the chief executive stepped from the train, he was cordially greet ed by several friends who had learned of his coming, and a number of news paper men. The governor is looking and feeling "a number one" as he put it. He is evidently confident of his nomination though replied to queries from the newspaper men in a joking, evasive manner. The governor is evidently not doing much talking. Together with Sargeant-at-Arms Sinclair he went over matters pertain ing to the convention last evening, and took a keen interest in the plans for the entertainment of the guests and delegates. The canvass of homes In the city by the committee was completed last evening is reported satisfactory. In addition to the accommodations at private homes and at hotels, Dr. Moore of the state insane asylum has made arrangements for sheltering a number of people at the asylum, and the long, airy corridors have been filled with clean, snowy cots, which will be a material aid in the work of taking care of the visitors.

The stalwart leaders have agreed upon the renomination of Governor Sarles. The opposition of Jud LaMoure has been withdrawn and it now looks as though not only .Sarles will be renominated without opposition, but also Congress men Marshall and Gronna, State Treasurer Peterson, State Superin tendent Stockwell and Chief Justice Morgan. The Sarles adherents claim that an endorsement of the present administration was one of the main issues before the primary campaign that by the election of an overwhelm ing majority of the delegates favor Able to a second term for the governor and other one-term officers, the con vention conld not utterly ignore the Z?'WT wishes of the people so emphatically expressed at the primaries by turn ing the governor down. The record made during Mr. Sarles' first term is ^,,n enviable one. Notwithstanding the /payment-of $468,000 of extraordinary expenses during the years 1905 and 1906, up to July 1 of the latter year, the books of the state auditor's office show a balance of $204000 in the gen eral fund of the state at the beginning of the fiscal year July 1. During the recent primary campaign in the state it was charged that the administra tion was in a bad way financially and that the general fund was depleted. This charge is met with the above statement, that the present adminis tration has had to meet extraordinary expenses to the sum above stated and in addition to paying these expenses and the current running expenses of the state up to date haB more than $200,000 left in the general fund. The only receipts by the state aside from the tax payments and ordinary reve nues were from the sale of $150,000 of bonds, to take care of $154,000 appro priated to pay deficiency building ap propriations for the state institutions which were contracted under previous administrations, so that the net amount of extraordinary expenses paid by the administration is $308,000. This is a showing of which the administra tion feels justly proud and is one of the reasons advanced by the support ers of Governor E. Y. Sarles why he is entitled to a renomination. In ad dition to the satisfactory business record of the administration, as above indicated, new systems of auditing' have been adopted by the governor. All bills of expense from any source are accompanied with sub-vouchers, so that there is a complete check upon all expense accounts coming to the state for payment. This means a sav ing of many thousands of dollars every year to the state. The appropriations of the legisla ture two years ago included extraor dinary expenses of several hundred thousand dollars for new buildings at state institutions rendered necessary by the rapid growth of these institu tions. In adidtion to these expenses, large sums of indebtedness had been contracted by previous administrations for additional buildings, in the ex pectation that bonds could be issued to meet them. These bonds were de clared invalid by the supreme court and it was necessary for the sums to be paid from the ordinary revenues. Of these deficiency appropriations, the payments made are as follows: State University, Grand Forks. .$68,000 Agricultural College, Fargo 30,000 Normal School, Valley City 38,000 Deaf School, Devils Lake 18,000 The following extraordinary appro priations for buildings and improve ments made by the last legislature have also been paid: School for Deaf $ 4,600 Feeble Minded Institution 50,000 Buildings, Hospital for Insane.. 85,000 Buildings, State Penitentiary... 20,000 Normal School, Valley City..... 42,695 Normal School, May.vtlle 45,000 Blind Asylum..'... 7,000 Agricultural College 50,000 On July 1, 1904, the balance in the general fund was $289,769.42. On July 1, 1906, after the payment of net ex traordinary expenses of $308,000 as qbove shown, the balance is over $200, 000. On July 1, 1904, the total of all cash on hand by the state was $743,602,29. On July 1, 1906, the total of all cash on hand is $1,305,290.29, an increase of nearly $600,000. LYNCH OF CASS. The Insurgents Will Probably Select Him for Their Candidate. Special to The Evralng Times, Jamestown, N. D., July 10.—rFrank Lynch of Casselton arrived today. "Fighting Frank" is one of the ten in surgents who successfully slipped in to the stalwart delegation from Cass cpunty.' He conducted a brilliant cam paign and the fact that he succeeded in securing ten delegates demonstrates that he is possessed of fighting abil ity and a generalship of a high order. It is understood here that the insur gents will select "Fighting Frank" as their candidate for governor and will cast their solid vote of 134 for him. As an organizer, fighter and campaign manager, Mr. Lynch stands far above any other man who was connected with the insurgent movement in North Dakota. He is a wealthy man, and is willing to spend his money liberally for his own political advancement or for the welfare of his friends. NDIGATIQNS POINT STRONGLY TO SARLES Special to The Evening Tlmea. Jamestown, N. D., July 10.—Party leaders have arrived today in force and the hotel lobbies are crowded. Committees are busy assigning guests. H. T.

Insurgents hold caucus tonight to determine their action in the con vention. H. T. Helgesen will probably be the insurgent mouth piece on the floor. He states no candidates for any state offices have been decided upon yet, and declines to give out the plans of the Insurgents as to state officers. Everything looks more and more like Sarles. I learn that a number of dele gates classed as insurgents are tor him. Uncle Dan McMillan of Langdon ar rived with the Cavalier delegation. McCumber is expected tomorrow. —Fred T. Lincoln. PEMBINA COUNTY. Special t» The Bnitaf Time*. Jamestown, N. D., July 10.—Hon. Judson LaMoure says Pembina county does not want anything and he is for the nomination of Gov.

Four officers of the torpedo boat destroyer Bedovi, who were placed on trial with the admiral, were found guilty of having premedltatlvely surrendered the Bedovi and all four were con demned to death by shooting. But on account of extenuating circumstances the emperor will be requested to com mute the sentences of the four officers to a dismissal from the service and to be deprived of certain rights which they would otherwise enjoy. A full report of the Cronstadt court martial shows that Admiral Rojeqt vensky was acquitted on the ground that he was not in his full senses and therefore was not accountable for what transpired at the time of the sur render.

Associated Preaa Cable to The Evening Times. London, July 10.—Britishers who have been so virtuous recently over the Chi cago meat packing revelations were today confronted with the annual re port of the inspectors of factories and workshops, which shows that condi tions here are quite as revolting as anything alleged of the western pack ing center. Dirty factories and dis gusting methods seems to be the rule instead of the exception. Jam factor ies, bakeries and sausage makers are all censured as being equally filthy and a description of one fits most of the others. Here is a report on a typi cal jam factory: "The boiling room lay between the yard and stable and horses reached the latter through the boiling room. Sanitary accommodations was hardly separated from the rooms where fresh fruit and uncovered jam were kept, and the floors were dirtv and undrain ed."

Alfred Blaisdell of this city could not be otherwise than gratified over the handsome way in which the mention of his name in connection with the republican nom ination for the office of lieutenant gov ernor has been received in different parts of the state. That he is in every way qualified for the position no one will deny and that he would honor ably and faithfully perform the duties of the office, if chosen therefore, every one who has any knowledge of the man must admit.

TA UNDER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES. EIGHT PAGES. PRICE FIVE CENTS 'i The Constitutional Democrats of the Russian Parliament Have Been Called Upon to Form a Ministry. EMPEROR IMPOSES THREE CONDITIONS But (he Democrats Refuse to Accede Anything to His Koyal Highness. Assocluted Press Cable to The Evolic Times. St. Petersburg, July 10.—The refusal of the constitutional democrats to par ticipate, having rendered it impossible to form a coalition ministry, the em peror and court, in the face of the ris ing spirit of the revolution in the country and the constantly extending evidence of dissatisfaction in the army, seem at last ready to turn to the con stitutional democrats as the only means of pacifying the country, as forshadowed in an interview with Gen eral Trepoff. Negotiations looking to the formation of a ministry composed of the constitutional democrats have been formally opened through the in termediatry of the former minister ot agriculture, Yearmoloff, leader of the new center party, but the first propo sitions of the government failed com pletely, owing to the impossibility of the constitutional democrats accept ing three conditions imposed, name ly, abandonment of the principle ot forced expropriation of land, full amnesty for political prisoners and to agree to a summer recess of parlia ment. To have accepted such condi tions, the constitutional democrats de clare, would have made them guilty ol treason, entirely destroyed their pres tige in the country and would have only angered instead of tranquilizing the people. The constitutional demo crats intend to stand by their guns, and believe the government must shortly accept their terms. OF Associated Press to The Evening Times.
