inate the game this year to a much
larger extent than formerly.

Popular Attorney.
Among the popular and prominent
attorneys in the city attending the
supreme court is R. H. Bosard former
ly of this city, now one of the leaders
of the Minot bar. He is here in the
celebrated county commissioners case
from that county. His numerous
friends in this city, where he is so
well known, will be more than pleased
to learn that he is making a marked
success in his new location.
Looking Over the Court House.
County Commissioner Korsmo of the
Fourth Commissioner's district, is in
the city today, and while showing some
friends through the court house re
marked to some of the officials that
he was merely looking in to see if
they were drawing their salaries
promptly. He is one of the ablest men
in the county for the position which
he is filling and knows the work of
the county to perfection.
To Get Immigrants.
Max Bass, general immigration agent
of the Great Northern, is sending out
blanks to farmers in all parts of the
state, asking them for a statement in
their success in farming. Be careful
in answering these not to overstate
conditions. Nothing would turn an
immigrant from our state quicker than
to come here and find conditions had
been over estimated. The story of
agricultural prosperity in our state is
quite good enough told just is it is.
The eastern farmer who is not satisfied
with the measure of our success wants
"too sure a thing" and would not
make a good citizen anyway. The
farmer who would succeed here or any
place else must work and plan intelli
gently, and the same is true of busi
ness as well as farming.

Little Trouble in Securing Samples—
Report Will be Host Comprehensive.
State Food Commissioner Ladd,
when not engaged in school work, Is

purpose samples which he secured on
a recent trip through the state.
"Sometimes beer is called malt,"
explained Commissioner Ladd in ans

sun in North Dakota beer could be
found on sale.
"I had very little difficulty in se
curing any amount of the beer for
experimental purposes," continued the
food commissioner. "In fact, 1
think our report on beer will be most
comprehensive inasmuch as we have
samples of almost every kind of beer
commonly known in the state."

Chas. Witham and Wife Re
ported To Have "Made
Up"—Sterling's Trial.
Special to The Kvralag Tlmm.
Fargo, Sept. 20.—The case of the
state against Ted Sterling, charged
with adultry was taken up late this
afternoon before Judge Malloy in
Moorhend. Several witnesses will be
examined, and from the testimony
taken so far it would appear that he
will be bound over to the action of the
grand jury.
In reference to Mrs. Witham, it was
stated at a late hour this afternoon
that she and her husband,- Charles
Witham, had agreed to forgive and
forget the unfortunate incident, and
again live in harmony. She will leave
for her home in Kalamazoo, Mich., to
night. Mrs. Witham says, however,
she will never return to Grand Forks.
Arguments Filed by J. B. Wineman In
Case of Mayer vs. ti. F. County.
In chambers this morning Judge
Fisk heard arguments on the demurrer
filed by State's Attorney Wineman in
the case of W. J. Mayer against Grand
Forks county. The suit was brought
to have declared null and void three
tax certificates from the land sale of
December, 1900, which were purchased
by Mayer. In 1903 he demanded from
the county auditor a tax deed which
was refused on the advice of the
state's attorney, unless Mayer paid the
taxes which were due on the property
covered by the certificate prior to the
date of the sale in 1900, there being
three years of delinquent taxes at that
time. Mayer then instituted proceed
ings in the district court to have the
tax certificates declared null and void
on the grounds that the county had no
right to sell the property for delin
quent taxes when it already had been
bid in at prior sales by the county.
The facts in the case were admitted
and the question of law raised on a
demurrer, the grounds of which are
that when the claim was disallowed
by the county commissioners the prop
er remedy would have been an appeal,
and also on the grounds that the prin
ciple of caveat emptor applied to tax
District Court Clerks Not Benefited by
New Federal Law.
Fees which will be collected by the
clerks of the district court in nat
uralization proceedings when the new
federal law becomes effective, Sept
27, must be turned over to the county
treasurer. This is the opinion of
several well known local attorneys,
who have given the subject consid
erable thought, but it is probable that
the attorney general will be asked to
give his opinion before the clerks
of the district courts will be sat
It has been the general opinion
from a casual reading of the new
federal law that the clerks of the
district courts might retain half of
the fees for his services in natural
ization proceedings and apply it to
paying any additional help they may
require to employ, or to dispose of
it as they may see fit, providing they
do not ask the county for additional
help for naturalization work.
The attorneys who have investigat
ed the matter fully are inclined to the
opinion that, since the duties of dis
trict court clerks expressly enumer
ated by the legislature, Include the
ministerial duties connected with the
naturalization of aliens, the clerks
cannot legally retain the fees, which
must be turned over to the county
treasurer the same as other moneys
are in the regular course of busi
Inability To Supply Cars at the Mines
When Most Needed Is the Cause
of Smaller Lignite Output.
Local lignite coal dealers say that
the decrease in the output of lignite
coal during past year has been due to
the railroad companies' inability to
furnish cars during the fall months
when the demand for lignite is heav
The demand for lignite is steadily
growing. The reduction in price at the
mines is made by more improved meth
ods for getting out the coal. Not for
the purpose of increasing the tonnage.
During the wheat season the rail
roads are taxed beyond their power to
move the grain and it is simply im
possible to get cars in which to load
lignite coal.
Eastern coal dealers fare better as
cars loaded with grain are reloaded
with eastern coal and which furnishes
the railroad companies with loads for
their cars both ways. While cars for
the lignite mines have to be hauled
back empty and they do not derive
much revenue from them consequently
do not furnish and the lignite mines
suffer and their output is less. The
crops previous to 1904 and 1905 were
not as heavy and the mines fared bet
Dr. A. Christy Brown of Fargo was
in the city today on private business
matters, but when seen by the Evening
Times stated that he was much inter
ested in the work of the North Da
kota Bible conference of which he
has been the moving spirit since its
inception. A meeting of the execu
tive committee will be held in the
near future to decide upon the work
for next year. At the close of the
last session at Devils Lake, the mat
ter of financing the organization for
next year was discussed, and Dr.
Brown insisted upon the matter being
given the same consideration that a
private enterprise would receive from
a conservative business man, and that
the financial work should be done
before beginning the preparation for
the program. This plan was readily
accepted and a considerable amount
of money—more than was collected
altogether last year—was pledged be
fore the conference closed. The ex
penses will be larger than In either
of the preceding years, but the pros
pects now are that sufficient finances
will be available without any solicita
tion to meet the demands made by
the wonderful and rapid development
of the organization.

Report of Statisticians Shows
Output Valued at Half a
Million Dollars.
North Dakota's total coal produc
tion amounted in 1905 to 317,542 short
tons, which had a spot value of $424,
All of the coal produced in North
Dakota is brown lignite, extensive
beds of which underlie the western
half of the stat.y It is not a nigh
grade fuel for heating purposes, and
until- 1896 it was mined principally by
ranchmen who had no other fuel.
The production of lignite during the
last ten years has, however, been con
siderably increased by the enactment
of a law by the North Dakota Tigisla
ture, which compels the use of lignite
in all state buildings and Institutions.
The production in 1905 was the larg
est in the history of the state, being
45,614 short tons, or 17 per cent in
excess of that of 1904, and 38,877 short
tons, or 14.6 per cent over that of
1903, when the largest previous out
put was obtained. The increased
production was at a sacrifice in val
ues, the average price having de
clined from $1.50 per ton in 1903, to
$1.43 in 1904, and $1.34 in 1905. The
total' value In 1905 was only $6,773
more than that of 1903.
The coal mines of the state gave
employment to 626 men in 190V
against 547 in 1904. They averaged
191 days in 1904 and 196 days in

hours. There were no strikes in 1905,
while in the previous year there were
175 men idle for 36 days. The num
