SOME SEEDED LEGISLATION. Among the laws which will un doubtedly be introduced in the com ipg legislature will be one on the sub ject of taxing the state banks for the purpose of creating a fund to pay the depositors of banks which fail through the defalcation of bank officials or the mismanagement of the institutions in any manner. The law will have the support of every honest banker in the state and will be demanded by the public which constitutes the great body of bank depositors. The. policy of such a law can not be Questioned in the face of the recent disclosures of men who have stood high in the financial circles of their communities who have fled from their defalcations only to And refuge in a suicide's grave or in the penitentiary. The plan for the proposed law in this state is to assess the state banks a certain percentage on their capital stocks, the funds arising from this source to be held by the state in the custody of the state treasurer for the payment in full of all depositors in state banks which from any cause are unable to meet their obligations. The immediate demand on the part of the general public for this law comes from the fact that one of the banks of the state through the stealings of its ex ecutive officer caused the loss of sev eral thousand dollars to the people who had placed their money in the custody of the institution for safe keeping. The intention is to have the law so framed that when any bank chartered under the laws of the state fails to meet its demands at the face value, this fund shall be immediately avail able to pay all depositors in full. The state would then step into the shoes of these depositors and in the settle ment of the bank's accounts take whatever percentage could be secured. Suppose for instance that a bank should fail for fifty thousand dollars which under the present plan would be the loss of the depositors who could ill afford it. The state would out of the trust fund pay these depositors in full and then if the assets should pay fifty per cent on the liabilities, that amount would be returned to the same fund from which the money was originally drawn. The details of the matter will be worked out in the construction of the proposed law, and will fix the rate of taxation to be paid by the banks, and WEEKLY. |4.00 One Your in advance .... 2.25 Six Months in advance 40 Three Months in advance 15 One Year not in advance Subscribers desiring address chmngcd must send former address atjwell as new one Entered as second-class matter *t the poetoffice at Grand Forks. North Dakota. fl.CO .75 .50 1.50 will be along the lines laid down in the Gronna bill on the same subject introduced in the lower house of con gress and intended to cover all na tional banks. The advantages to this state which would come as the result of such leg islation .ire immeasurable. It would give the public a confidence in our banking institutions which they would never get in any other way. The man who takes the earnings of his lifetime —probably the price of the farm which he and his wife have grown old in paying for and which has required the sweat and toil of many years— and passes them over the counter of a bank for safe keeping, wants some thing more than the honesty of the banker to preserve the money so de posited intact. In the last few years at least the public has lost confidence in the honesty of men. And well it might. Stensland was a banker of prominence. Erickson, who nsed the funds of Minoters to indulge in high life, was accounted honest. Hippie stood high in religions and financial circles. There are plenty of honest bankers —men who would rather lose their souls than misappropriate a penny of their depositors' money. But the men and women who hand their money over the counters of the banks do not have the gift of foresight to determine whether the officials be long to the one class or the other. As a consequence many of the small de positors are keeping their money out of the banks and taking the chances of being robbed by burglars. The banks are suffering from this course and will suffer more as the people be' come more convinced that the chances for safety are largely dependent upon the honesty of the man who handles the funds and that the connection of the state with the banks which it charters is merely perfunctory. The proposed law will obviate anything of this sort and make the state respon sible in fact as well as in name. PURE MILK AGAIN. A few months ago the Commercial club of this city took up the question of a pure milk supply for the city, and after an elaborate report the matter was put to sleep until the crops were sown and gathered. So far as known no one has died as the result of the milk supply and in all probability nothing of the kind would occur. But the fact that these conditions are true does not by any means lessen the need of city legislation on the subject. It is not a matter of concern that the milk dealers in the city at this time are endeavoring to give the pub lic a pure article. It is a matter of prevention. It is that there may be no danger in the future that legisla tion is required at this time. It is of course a mooted question whether tubereulosis is transmissible from the bovine species to man. There is abun dant argument that such a thing is impossible, while the opponents of the theory have some claims on the other side which are worthy of considera tion. It would seem to be a common sense proposition however that when cows, especially those of the dairy breeds, are so intensely developed in the milk producing qualities that their whole systems are made to contribute to this end, any disease of the animal would be especially pronounced in the milk supply. It is therefore certain that if the diseases of the animals are communicatable to the user of the milk, that there would be more danger from highly developed dairy cows than would have been the case in the old fashioned farm cows whose milk fat tened the children of a decade ago and contributed a large part of the table supply of the family. This is the rea son why dairymen and the public gen erally are given so much more atten tion to the health of the cow then for merly. But aside from the matter of the communication of disease germs from the producer of milk to the. consumer, there is another feature of the milk supply question which demands con sideration in every community, no matter how honorable the milk deal ers may be. This is the manner of handling the supply after it is taken from the cow. Milk, it must be re membered, because of its being a fluid will catch and retain any particles of dirt and filth which come in contact with it, and as it is used as food in the same condition it is in when so taken, it is evident that the conditions which surround it from the time of milking until it is stored, should be of the most cleanly character. If the cows are covered with stable flltli. large quantities must fall from their bodies into the milk pails during the milking process and in spite of any plan that could lie followed, must become a part of the liquid by the dissolving of the solid particles and their mingling with the fluid. And even if the cows are kept perfectly clean the particles of the same filth flying in the atmosphere which lodge in the milk will in a very short time add considerable to the fluid. It is lor these reasons that the city which is responsible for the public health and the cleanliness of the food sold to the public, has a right to de7 tnand that the suwoundings in which the milk is made ready for the market slnnild be perfectly clean and that every impurity shall be excluded from it so that when it is placed on the market the public may know that it is sec.iring an article so pure that it need not hesitate to use it. WHAT WILL HE CHANGE! Should John Burke be elected gov ernor of this state, a condition which is far removed, but which does not change the reason advanced in behalf of it—would he attempt, or would his party attempt to change the heads of the state educational institutions in the plan of his great reforms which he is so willingly promising the people at this time? The Evening Times simply desires to call the attention of the voters of the state to the fact that in the election of Burke such a thing is possible. True, it could not be ac complished entirely in the beginning, but if the saving of the state can only be accomplished by the election of a democratic governor, as that party and its cloven footed helpers who pretend to be republicans claim, why should not the plan be perpetuated? The controlling bodies of the edu cational institutions could and un doubtedly would be changed so that men in harmony with the political doctrines of the party in control might have their places. If these great insti tutions, which are not only the boast of the state but which demand and receive a large share of the attention of the legislature and which handle the largest portion of the state's taxes, have been so conducted that they do not need a change in the great reform work which Mr. Burke has taken upon himself, snrely the party and the nun who have stood by those institutions and have built them up to the high position which they occupy in the edu cational world, are not so very danger ous to the welfare of the state. Where is the farmer or the farmer's boy who would tolerate for a moment any intereference with Worst, the great giant who has directed the des tinies of the Agricultural college and has sent out from its halls young men and women to engage in the agricul tural work of the state who are the peers of any in the land? Can this state afford to be rid of his masterful power over the rising generation which has carried hundreds of boys and girls who have come under the magic of his personality to the highest planes of noble and upright living? Not a man could be found in all the state but would rise in righteous in dignation at any attempt to remove Merrifield, the man who has built out of the chaos of a new field, a universi ty which stands today the proud equal of hundreds of its kind which have put many times its age behind them. The same is true of Bangs, who has made the school for that class of chil dren who by some mysterious act of Omnipotence have been deprived of the sense of speech and hearing. Would any one who has witnessed his earnest and successful work in giving the children who have come under his care the ability to communicate with their fellows and changed the deserts of their lives for a paradise, tolerate for a moment his removal in order to accomplish a reform which consists in giving a few offices to a Tew pie hunger democrats who happen to be affiliated with a political party with a record so disastrous to the welfare of the nation that the people refuse to intrust to them the management of its affairs? If these State institutions and their kindred ones have been so managed by the republican administrations that they command the high positions they do, and if the men who have written their lives into the very history of these institutions are such that there is no need of change, in the name of common sense, what reason is there for giving Burke a chance to do with them as his party might dictate? The democrats of this state are sore because the state republican platform referred to the public services of some of the men who have been honored by the party in the past. The real truth of the matter is that the democrats have qnly one man who has achieved any prominence and they want to for get him just as soon as possible. They can not refer to the publicrecord of Grover Cleveland, and he is all the history they have. It is pathetic and ridiculous at the same time. g« THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. A CUBAN LESSON. It is evident that the Cuban insur ants who became such for the priv ilege of plundering which it afforded, iave been disappointed. They have been compelled to lay down their arms ithout so much as striking a blow and must if the plans of this country are carried out, return to their home* poorer than they were when they en gaged in the undertaking. And such a return is not the ambition of the rank and file of the Cubans who en gage in insurrections. True, the leaders hoped to accom plish something in the way of over throwing the Palma government and at the same time checking the Ameri can commercial advance in the island. But what the leaders wanted and what their followers wanted are de cidedly different features. The lat ter were merely the tools by which the former hoped to accomplish their purposes. They would be rewarded In the opportunities for plundering which the insurrection would afford. If the American strong arm is used with firmness at thifi time it will cer tainly accomplish much in the edu cation of the Cuban masses to the fu tility of engaging in such undertak ings. For the sending home empty handed of the rabble which has in a large measure constituted the insur gent army, will discourage that ele ment from again entering upon such a scheme and will accordingly reduce the danger from such uprisings in the future. The Evening Press is showing evi dence of being compelled to fight on the defensive. That is a bad political position for a party organ to be in, but then it can not be held responsible for the people preferring Roosevelt and prosperity to Cleveland and ruin.. Pulse of the Press [Mayville Tribune.] The Evening Times calls attention to the fact that it is the only daily newspaper in Grand Forks supporting the republican ticket, the Herald, Press and Normanden all supporting the democratic ticket. Wh6n the Evening Times was established it stated that it came to supply a want for a repub lican paper in Grand Forks, and the present situation implies that there was such a vacancy existing.

C„ Oct. 6.—The army quartermasters who have to do with the dress of the soldiers have about decided to retain the blue shirt as a part of the uniform of the army. It will not be replaced entirely by the olive drab, or khaki, garment, of which there is some dislike, especially among the troops In the western part of the country. It is found, too, that there is a partiality for the blue shirt among soldiers in the tropics, it is more com fortable than the khaki shirt, and does not show the dust and dirt as rapidly. There is much discussion In the mili tary service regarding the use of khaki, and it is coming to be realized that it is not in all respects a worthy substitute for the blue, although it has the effect of contributing the element of invisibility which is lacking in the blue uniform. itsty THINKS PEOPLE JE PROSPEROUS C. L. Murphy," Machine Man of St. Paul, Njiendlng Day In City—May Lo cate Here. That Covers Your Risk Fiilly C. Murphy of'St. Paul is visiting in the city today with friends. Mr. Murphy is returning to his home after a short sojourn among the pines in the Leech Lake reservation. Mr. Mur phy owns a machine shop in St. Paul but recently his health went back on him. Speaking of Northern Minnesota he said: "Walker and some of the other towns up in th eLeech lake country are developing into health resorts Two diseases which affect mankind are greatly relieved and in most cases cured by a sojourn among the pines. Those who are in the first stages of lung trouble can, I believe, be per manently cured and made strong, and even those upon whom such diseases have made serious Inroads may come out victors by living as much as poss ible in the fresh air of the pines. "Hay fever always has been a puz zler to the physicians, but as long as a person is in the pine woods of the north he doe's not seem to be bothered with it Relief is the best that can be looked for, for absolute cures havt thus far been hopeless. The region around Walker and Leech lake has, they tell me, been pronounced by physicians as the best in Minnesota for throat and lung troubles and hay fever. This is largely because of the dry atmosphere, clay soil and the pines. Patients sent to Walker by physicians who are acquainted with th£ conditions as they exist there are not hampered by a lot of restrictions as to diet, etc., but are instructed to live almost -entirely in the open air. "East Grand Forks? Well, to be frank, there are a great number of sample rooms here, but I guess there are worse things than saloons. The citizens se'em to be prosperous." ARTICLE ON STEENERSON. The National Magazine of which Joe Mitchell Chapel is the editor, con tains an article on Congressman Steenerson in this issue and a photo graph of the congressman. The arti cle describes the work that has been done by Mr. Steenerson in congress and especially his work in the drain age legislation. He took the ground that government lands needing irriga tion were set aside to be irrigated and that government lands rieediiig drain age should be set aside-and the money' expended as a revolving fund for drainage purposes.
