IN IMPERATIVE NECESSITY. There can be no question even at this time that the popular demand will be such that President Roosevelt will be compelled to again become the Btandard bearer of the republican iwrty in the next presidential cam paign. Never since Washington laid aside the scepter of state has there been a demand from the people for such a thing. Yet it will be made just as certainly as the president lives to Bee the sun rise on the morning of the next national republican nominating convention. Why is this demand made? In the first place because he is the idol of every American in whose veins runs the spirit of patriotism. There is not a man in the country today, unless lie be an anarchist., who would not do battle in defense of the matchless leader who has never shown fear and has never turned his back to the enemy. He is an idealist, though a doer rather than a dreamer. He does things, and in such doing has his mind always on that which is high and noble. He is the idol of the great mass of citizens known as the common peo ple because' honesty and justice and equality are his watch words. He came into power at a time which tried men's souls. The nation needed a man who had the courage to take hold of existing conditions with a firm WEEKLY $4.00 One Year in admno* .... 2.25 \ix Month in advance 40 Three Months in advance 15 One Year not in advance Subscribers deeirins addreee chanted must send former address as well as new one Entered as second-class matter at the poetoflice at Grand Forks.

Absolutely without fear and sincere in his purpose he grappled with problems from which older men shrank. He took the peo ple into his confidence and frankly, though without bragudocia, told them what he proposed to do. They could uot at first believe it, not because they did not think he would try, but because the task seemed impossible of accom plishment. He fought in the open and with fair weapons. He drew to him self the greatest body of followers any man has ever had in this country, and under the magnetism of his leadership they manfully fought in the very ditches of the enemy. When all was over it was found that he had won at every point. But his work is not yet done and the people of this nation know it. T#y will not permit him to retire until he has done it. for no man can be found who can take it up where he will leave off. When the measure of the man is taken it will be found that he towers high above all others of his gener ation. He came into power by a lan mentable accident, and announced that so far as lay in his power he would carry out the plans of the man whom the people has chosen. In doing this he did not give the nation the advant age of his own vigorous ideas. The people have therefore had but one term of his own, and while he frankly stated that he would not again be a candidate for the presidency, he did so believing that the reforms which he hoped to accomplish could be secured within that time. But they can not be, and for this reason it will be imperatively demanded that he continue the work until it is finished. There is a vast difference too be tween the idea of a man being a candidate by his own seeking and be ing so because of the sincere and hon est demand of his fellow countrymen. This is the position Roosevelt occupied today, and it is the position he will occupy when the next national con vention assembles to select a repub lican standard bearer. Under these conditions it would be a fitting tribute to him who is not only the beloved idol of the state, but who because of his early residence within our borders, North Dakota may proudly claim as her own citizen, for the Jamestown convention to adopt a ringing endorsement of President Roosevelt for another, term. Let the republicans of the state take this stand in behalf of the champion of the peoples rights and set in motion the enthusiasm which shall sweep him into an uncontested election and there by again declare that the people rule and their will is the supreme law of the land. A POLITICAL EPOCH. The convention which will convene at Jamestown next Thursday will be a remarkable one in more than one particular. It will represent the ex pressed will of the republican party in this state and its actions and decisions will be those of the republican party. Though one of the youngest of the commonwealths, it takes the proud position as second in the list of those devoted to the principles of the great republican party. And why should it not? That party was founded on the great principles of equality of all men before.the law. It was the party of the great mass of commoners who are the bulwark of the nation. Its greatest leaders have come from the people. Lincoln, its great imperson ator, when he came into the presi dency had never known any inspira-^ tion save that which he had drawn from the noble class from which hf sprang. He was always the same' plain man of the people. It has been almost entirely so of all the other great leaders who have made their names apart of the nation's history. Garfield came from the com mon walks of life and proved it by his devotion to duty and his ability to govern by the force of his master ful mind. Blaine, whose magnetism thrilled a nation, was from the same class. So was the beloved McKinley. So also is that peerless leader who in defiance of all the supposed in fluences of those who would dictate the nation's policy, has carried to victory the banner of the people, and planted it so far in advance of the enemies's entrenchments that the coun try has not yet realized what he has accomplished. The Jamestown convention is the first official gathering in the state since the advanced position of the party has been taken. The party is different from what it was in the dark days of the rebellion when Lincoln was the guiding star, because the condi tions which confront it are different. Then it was engaged in preserving the union and in that act striking the shackles. from four millions of slaves. Now it is engaged in the work of establishing a new order of in ternal business principles which will be as far reaching and as beneficial as was the great work of Lincoln. The principles of political govern ment which have been laid down by the party in carrying out the reforms should become the individual prin ciples of every man who affiliates with the party. They should find a hearty approval in the actions of the conven tion which will meet to declare the will of the party of this state. It is important that the hands of President Roosevelt be unheld, not only because he is engaged in one of the greatest battles of the modern world, but because he is the embodi ment of the enthusiastic will of the great class of common people who have given the nation the ablest statesmen and the truest patriots. Let the enthusiasm which will have its origin in the republican gathering of this state swell like a mighty tidal wave and gathering power as it ad vances, sweep the state until nothing can be heard save its own' roar, and passing the confines of our own be loved commonwealth, cover the entire nation, its echoes dying only on the distant shores of a trumphant victory for the republican party in 190$, GRAD FORKS DAY AT FARGO. The people of this city will make a special proof of their fidelity to a sister city when the delegation goes from Grand Forks to Fargo on July 25 to attend the state fair. Last year the people of that city came by hundreds to show their in terest in the fair when it was held in this city and they did \every thing in their power to assist in making the exposition a success. One day has been set apart this year and is es pecially devoted to the interests of this city. The only thing which we are asked to furnish is the crowds. The directors of our own fair are doing everything in their power to secure the attendance of such a crowd as will prove that Grand Forks is the most progressive city in the state. It is not only for the good of Fargo that the crowd should attend. The day has been advertised as the es pecial property of this city and if only a few of the people attend it will give the state the impression that we are decidedly non-progressive as a city. A large attendance will show that we are not only willing to reciprocate the courtesy extended to us last year but that we are desirous of letting the people of the northwest know the advantages of the city. People are largely influenced by appearances, and if those who attend the state fair from other parts of the state see large crowds from this cily they will con conclude that we are enterprising and progressive, and the report will be worth much to the city. Beautiful Women. One woman went out on the way of shame. And the world marveled and read her name And praised her beauty and gasped and cheered When, light and fluttering, she appear But one little woman in hodden grav «ent out to the suffering night and day And never for her was the trump of fame And never a cheer as she went and came. One woman went out on the path of lies. And the whole wide world praised her lustrous eyes And paused and listened when she would speak And marked the roses that graced her cheek. But one little woman in dingy black Went down where the weary were on the rack And .carried the woes of the sad and lone And comforted many—and was un known. One woman set foot on the road of wrong. They blazoned her deeds in a joyou's song That told of her daring, her charm and wit. And the world went humming and sing ing it, But one little woman in home gown Went seeking for sorrow about the town. And smiles came to gladden where she found tears. But never for her were the thrilling cheers. But somewhere the record is fairly kept, Unless at his task has the angel slept, ^nd- doubtless there, when the warder reads The beautiful tale of the golden deeds, In shining letters will stand each name Of these little women who had no fame But who went patiently day by day To do th*ir work In the Master's way. And further than all of the outmost suns Will ring the names of the Beautiful Ones. —St. Louis World. Amusements VAI'DEVILLE. The only good way of spending a part of the evening is to drop into the Metropolitan at any time after 7:30 and see the bill the Orpheum Co. are offering this week. They always have something and this week they claim they have done better than ever. There are lots of moving pictures among them the "Gaieties of Divorce" "The Educated Monkey," "August," and the "Youthful Train Robbers." Corinne has a rattling good new il lustrated song called "Only a Message from Home, Sweet, Home," The 8 Bells contribute to the program and the Medallion trio offer a musical farce Get the Habit. THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. Pulse of the Press Flarin? (he Credit. [Linton Record.] Again has Senator Hansbrough dem onstrated that the people of a state are wise when they do as many of the older states have done for generations —keep their senators and representa tives in congress term after term, al lowing the delegation to acquire such influence and experience as will en able them to much better than at first serve the interests of their constitu ents. There is, partly in this county, what was formerly the Fort Rice reser vation. Some years ago it was thrown open to settlement, but with the pro vision that the settlers pay for the land. The land is just about the same in quality as other lands in this region, and there was no justice in making settlers pay for the reservation land when across an imaginary line Uncle Sam was giving away as good farhis to actual settlers. Some time ago Sen ator Hansbrough was requested by the Rice settlers to act in the matter of procuring remedial legislation, to the end that reservation settlers might se cure title to their farms on the same terms as other settlers. He introduoed a bill and worked valiantly for its pas sage. But there was strong opposition by some of the senators representing the older states, and, when the session of congress grew near adjournment last week, it appeared that the bill would fall by the wayside. But the senior senator—who for many months editors of the Patterson stripe had been "abusing like a dog"—had been in congress long enough to know all of the ins and outs of congressional legis lation. and he did not. despair. The end of the session was so near that the Rice bill could not be reached by regular methods of procedure. But ft happened that a similar bill covering the Fort Crittenden reservation, in I'tah, was pending, and its position on the calendar was such that it would be reached. While it was under con sideration in the senate Mr. Hans brotigh succeeded in attaching to it a "rider" covering the Rice reservation. In this way it passed the senate. It was at once sent to the house, where it was believed there was a majority against it. In fact, the public lands committee of the lower body was strongly antagonistic. The Utah bill had originated in the house, and the Rice reservation was in the nature of a senate amendment. So, when the bill reached the house, a conference com mittee was appointed and sent to meet a similar committee from the senate. Representative Tom Marshall worked hard with the house conferees, and they finally agreed to Hansbrough's senate amendment. The bill saves the Fart Rice settlers between $75,000 and $100,000. The text of the Hansbrough amendment is as follows: "All per sons having filed, or may hereafter file, homestead applications upon any of the lands situate within the aban doned Fort Rice military reservation, in North Dakota, shall be entitled to a patent to the land filed upon by such person upon compliance with the pro visions of the homestead law of the United States and proper proof thereof, and shall not be required to pay the appraised values of such land in addi tion to such compliance with said homestead laws." The Fort Rice reser vation wouldn't, just now, be a healthy neighborhood wherein to recite the apochryphal old yarn of "The Loot ing of Alaska." The Coniintr Test. [Hannah Moon.] After the Jamestown convention on the 12th the people will know whether the insurgents are the gilt edged, rose tinted, self-righteous faction they have claimed to be, and whether the good people are so enthusiastic in their cause as they claim. That gathering will in all probability show the elec tors as having substantial confidence in the majority of officers in control of the present administration. A Leading Question. [Fargo Call.] "The chicken houses of Sheldon have been invaded," says the Grand Forks Herald. Where's De La Bere? STORIES OF THE STREET. Mid-summer is pre-eminently the season of "esDecial bargains," and the woman who can stray in to the retail districts with money and escape un scathed is a phenomenon. Usually she emerges from the delirium of rem nants and mill ends and broken lots etc., with an arm full of bundles and a mournfully flattened pocketbook. ,It was last Saturday that a Grand Forks woman desired to send $5 to an address out of the city, and after the letter had been written she handed it to her daughter, together with a $20 bill and, requesting that she secure a money order, enclose it in the letter and mail the same. "That you may get that pair of gloves you asked me for yesterday," she continued, "and any other little thing you may need. Bring me the change." The young woman departed on her errand, and after she left the house her mother wondered whether she might not get reckless and spend $6 or $7 for nic-nacs. She knew herself the temptations of the bargain count ers and the allurments of the shopping habit. Then other thoughts drove such thoughts from her mind. Tea was waiting when the daughter of the house returned with a face ra ther flushed and her arms full of bun dles of various sizes and descriptions. "Gracious," her mother exclaimed, what have you been doing?" "Oh, mamma, I've got such a lot of bargains! I just couldn't help taking them!" Then she dropped her load on the couch and from the palm of her bands she extracted 90 cents in silver and handed it to her parent with the re mark "1 brought back your change, though." A Bit Wobbly. William A. Glasgow, jr., interstate commerce commission's lawyer, said in Pittbsurg about those far-famed railway clerks to whom from motives of pure friendship small fortunes in stock were given by disinterested cor porations: "It is a long story, one of rich and powerful organizations taking a sud den affection for, poor clerks and giv ing these clerks with no hope of a re turn, ten, twenty, thirty thousand dol lars worth of stock. It is a beauti ful story, but it wabbles. It is strange ly like the story of the Russian wolves A traveler described in an inn an ad venture wirh wolves upon the steppes. Ten miles from habitation on a bitterly cold night of snow and wind, his sledge was set upon by a pack of wolves some twenty strong. "The traveler fired into the brown of the pack, killed a wolf and saw to his great relief that the others had stopped to devour it.. But they made short work of that small meal and were soon on the sledge again. A sec ond time the man killed a wolf.' A second time its companions ate it. And once again they closed in on the sledge But the traveler with his ready w&apon killed the wolves off one by one and each kill halted the pack for a meal and then the tired horses had a chance to put a little greater distance between themselves and their pursuers. "And finally the traveler declared, only one wolf was left. He was a big fellow. He'came on like the wind. The traveler whipped up his horses. Al ready the lights of the village could be seen twinkling feebly through the snowstorm. One more spurt and— "But with a loud laugh the landlord of the inn interrupted the traveler. "'Carefully friend.carefully friend,' said he. "According to your story the last wolf had some nineteen others in side it." "Yes, said the traveler, "I remem ber now that he did wobble a bit.'" Jio Longer a Mystery. When Pierpont. Morgan sailed on the Celtic to Naples a stop was made at Ponta Delgada, in the Azores, and a delegation came to call upon the mag nate. The talk during the reception turn ed to music and a lady asked Mr. Mor gan if he had ever heard the Gregor ian music that is sung in the Sistine chapel at Rome. "I have," said Mr. Morgan. "And how did you like it?" the lady asked. "Those chants, you know are said to be sung to the tunes which were used in David's time." Mr. Morgan smiled. "I could never understand till now," he said, "why Saul threw his javelin at David." A singular practice prevails among some of the railroad men of this city. The men who adhere to the strange custom are great believers in luck as manifested lv- object lessons. In ex plaining the thing yesterday one of them said: "We make a practice of watching the numbers on box cars as a train is passing. You know they are usually in groups of five. Well, these five fig ures represent a poker hand or the figures on dice. If, for instance, we see four '2's' or three '2's' and two '5's' we have a full house, and consider it our lucky day. That is the time to do our betting or shaking the dice for ci gars if we happen to be inclined that way. Try it. You'll find it works out." WIRELESS FOft EYERYBODY. Cheap Little Invention that Makes It Practicable in Every Home. (From Washington Star.) Almost the limit in wireless telegraphy and the transmission of power without wires seems to have been reached by a young French engineer, according to a report of Con sul Atwell of Roubaix to the depart ment of commerce and labor. The consul says that the inventor has a machine weighing about seven pounds and costing not more than $10, with out masts or poles, which can send wireless messages, and is incapable of being interrupted by any other sys tem. it is said to be capable of ex ploding mines or torpedoes, of driving torpedoes at a distance, exploding them or bringing them back to their starting point, and of lighting electric lights and starting dynamos at a dis tance without wires. The report does not say how the ap paratus differentiates between the mines and torpedoes of a friend and those of an enemy, or how if it is used on shipboard it is to be prevented from exploding all the torpedoes in a squadron, as well as the particular one that has been shot at an enemy's ship. The report speaks as though all of these problems had been solved and the invention was a practical success. The report says, in part: There will be no longer any necessity for fishing up floating tor pedoes, or will there be any occasion to cut wires connected with them. No matter where explosives that are pro vided with the Deni8sel invention may be placed, no power can prevent their explosion at the moment decided upon by the person manipulating the machine which regulates the wave emissions. The new invention is ap plicable also to the direction and firing of automobile or Whitehead torpedoes. This is an important point, when the following facts are considered: 1. That five out of ten torpedoes in active war miss aim either by faulty throwing or deviation. (The Denlssel invention allows for throwing them in any direction, even backward. White head torpedoes thus equipped could neither miss aim nor be lost.) 2. That a torpedo will explode even if it be caught in the Bullivant nets with which large ships are provided and cause great damage. The White head torpedo costs several thousand francs. The Denlssel machine can send forth as well as receive on land tele grams that are a specialty of its own, and that no other machine can Inter cept. It can also communicate with submarines. It can set.in motion at long distance electric machines, steam motors, light lighthouses, and even set a typewriting machine in motion, so that it will print a long ways off from the post of emission whatever one de sires that it shall print. As soon as the French minister of the navy was advised by Mr. Denissel of the first trial of his remarkable in vention Lieutenant Lacoste of the navy was delegated to proceed to experiment with the inventor. In order to demon strate to Lieutenant Lacoste that his machine works at long distance and without poles. Mi\ Denissel accom panied the lieutenant on a train going from Arras to Paris with one of his machines, and asked Lieutenant La coste to give a note to the person manipulating the waves of emission that should indicate the hour when the machine was to expode, this note to be opened only after the departure of the train. At the hour Indicated in the note the machine exploded in the train forty kilometres from Arras, by means of waves sent from Arras. Since' that time Dr. Denissel has ex perimented at a distance of several feet under water and all of the experiments have been successful. No one ever had too much currant jelly or spiced currants in the house when winter sets in and the season for meats is open. Make your plans this year before the currants are ready and put up a lot of them. A jar of them makes a very acceptable mite, too, to give some Invalid friend to whom yours would taste much better than a jar purchased. If you are looking for new novelties call at Kingman's.

"Such language," said Senator For aker apropos ol an acrimonious and rather personal debate, reminds me of the slashing editorials of the fam ous Rudd of Salt Rock. "Rudd of Salt Rock wielded a pen like a bludgeon. I have by heart a sample of his style, a brief character study of a rival editor. This charac ter study runs like this: 'Did any reader ever see the edi tor of our esteemed contemporary? Take an eight bushel sack about as long one way as the other. Fill it with bran. Hit both ends heavily with a club so as to swell it out in the cen ter. That Is our friend physically. Now talk a half-witted, well-fed Hot tentot. Inject Into him the largest possible amount of conceit. Extract from him three fourths of his brain and all of his moral principle and beat him over the head until he has forgot ten what little he ever knew. And there you have our friend mentally.'" Keen Sense of Hnmor. "There's nothing like a keen sense of liumor," said Rear Admiral Bueh ler at Atlantic City. "In a woman, in a soldier, in a sailor, in a clerk a sense of humor is a help and & blessing through life." "At the same time even a sense of humor may exist in excess. I, for my part, shouldn't care to have so great a sense of humor as a British soldier I once heard about." "This soldier was ordered to be flogged. During the flogging he laugh ed continually. The lash was laid on all the harder, but under the rain of blows the soldier laughed. 'What are you laughing about?" the sergeant finally asked. 'Why,' the soldier chuckled, "I'm the wrong man.'" Case of Mistaken Identity. Oliver Hereford once entered a doubtful-looking restaurant in a small New York town and ordered a lamb chop. After a long delay the waiter returned bearing a plate upon which reposed a dab of mashed potatoes and a much overdone chop of microscopic portions, with a remarkably long and slender rib attached. This the wait er set down before him and then hur ried away. "See here," called Herford, "I ord ered a chop." "Yessir," replied the man, "there it is." "Ah, so it is," replied Herford, peer ing at it closely. "I thought it was a crack in the plate." Reliable, but Not Talented. Two Irishmen were talking about one of their friends who had been kill ed the day before by a premature blast. "It's an awful thing Pat, the way poor Dinny was tuk," observed Cas ey. "It is, it is," replied Pat feelingly. "A fine man was Dinny." "He was that." "And a fine shoveler sure he was the finest shoveler on the job." "As good a shoveler as youse find in a year lookin'." "He was a good shoveler, a good shoveler, he was. but he was not what you would call a 'fancy shoveler.'" Different Xow. First Gentleman (entering the room of the second gentleman): "About a year ago you challenged me to fight a duel." Second Gentleman (sternly): "I did sir." First Gentleman: "And I told you that I had just got married and I did not care to risk my life at any haz ard." Second Gentleman (haughtily): remember, sir." First Gentleman (bitterly): "Well my feelings have changed any time you want to fight me, let me tnow." A Bad Break. Mrs, Brown had a new servant—a Swede, Hilda—whom she was training to wait upon the table properly. The girl made such rapid progress that Mrs. Brown decided to give a little din ner. The dinner progressed successfully so that by desert time, Mrs. Brown was beginning to congratulate herself. But her pride was destined to re ceive a fall, for Hilda appeared with a finger bowl, passed it to the guest of honor, and inquired stolidly: "Vant to vaah?" All the World's a Stage. "Instead of being a millionaire," confided the young man at the seaside hotel to the beautiful heiress, "1 be lieve that it is only honest now, that we are engaged, for me to tell you that I am the shop-walker at Catchem & Skinem's dry goods emporium." I thought there was something fam iliar about you," answered the beauti ful heiress. "I am in the ribbon de partment there," CROW AND JAPANESE. "It is not generally known that the Crow Indian language is very much akin to that of the Japanese," said Colonel S. C. Reynolds, govern ment agent at the Crow Indian agency, who has been In Sheridan making arrangements for the open ing of 1,500,000 acres of the Crow reservation to settlement during the last two weeks in June. "That an Indian tribe 200 miles from the coast should have many words in common is most remark able and opens a line of theory and research upon which ethnologists and linguists can spend much time and study. Near the Custer battlefield, lives a negro named 'Smoky.' Smoky was bom on the reserves and has been adopted tfnto the Crow tribe, so he is an Indian. He talks the Indian lan guage better than he does English. Smoke always works around the agency, and usually for the Indian agent. "Last year I had a Japanese cook at the agency. Several days after he came to work for me three 'Jap' section men from the Burlington railroad's gang came one evening to see my cook. They were in the kitchen jab bering away, when Smoky came in. "A few minutes later the negro came in and told me the 'Japs' were talk ing Crow instead of their own lan guage. At that time I could speak Indian only in a limited way, but I went Into the kitchen and asked my cook (who could speak English) about it. To my surprise-, I found that Smokv was partially correct, and that many of tne Japanese words were used In the Crow language with identically the same meaning. I am not enough of an ethnologist to say where these identical words came from, or whether or not the Crows and the Japanese had a common origin, but it Is a curious fact that these lan guages are very much alike." ?}?3 KX'.-*« 3 W hX TUESDAY, JULY 10, 1906.
