A gentleman who returned yester day from Fargo stated that the repub lican state central-committee has made a careful and comprehensive poll of the state and finds that the majority for the state ticket,' will be even better than its most sanguine friends ex pected. The truth is, that the failure of the democrats to make good any of the professions with which they start ed the campaign, and the sinister pur pose of Mr. Burke and a number of the other candidates in seeking to hood wink the- people, have reacted and not only the republicans are refusing to support the democratic candidates, but their inability to show cause why they chould be .elected, has driven many of their own people from them. VOTERS HUE URGED TO BISTER October 80 Is the Time—The New Law Is Imperative on This Point. The state republican committee has issued a statement containing valuable information as to the regis tration of voters this fall. As the election draws near the time is limit ed in which voters can register and the committee urges all voters who expect to vote at the coming elec tion to be registered. Under the provisions of Section 746 Revised Codes of 1905, all voters living in cities and villages contain ing 800 inhabitants or more must, reg ister before being eligible to vote at the general election to be held Nov. 6, 1906. The registration law, which was in force in former elections in the state was amended and modified by *the primary election law enacted two years ago. It is provided in that law: "The poll lists so kept at the pri mary election and delivered to the boards of registration shall take the place of the first registration now required and notice only shall be given of the second day of registration which shall be held and conducted as now provided and no other shall be required to vote at the general elec tion following. The second day of registration is the Tuesday of the week preceeding the general election and this year is Oct. 30. At which time the board of registration shall meet "at the place designated for holding the pols for the purpose of revising, correcting and completing such lists, and for this purpose they shall meet at 8 o'clock a. m. and re main in session until 8 o'clock p. m." Voters who did not participate in the primaries and those who have be come voters since that time should see that they are registerd on Oct. 30 and thus avoid the necessity of "swaring in" their votes on Nov. 6, 1906. CHHI6ES 11 KMIl LAWS What Citizens Must Do Before Becom ing Eligible to Vote at Coming Election. Under the provisions of section 746 revised codes of 1905. all voters liv ing in cities and villages contain ing eight hundred inhabitants or more register before being eligible to vote at the general election to be held Nov. 6th, 1906. The registration law, which was in force in former elections in the state was amended and modified by the primary election law enacted two years ago. It is provided in that law: The poll lists so kept at the primary election and delivered to the boardb of registration shall take the place of the first registration now required and notice only shall be given of the second day of registration which shall be held and conducted as now provided and no other shall be required to vote at the general election following. The second day of registration Ib the Tuesday of the week preceeding the general election and this year is Oct. 30th. At which time the board of registration shall meet "at the place designated for holding the polls for the purpose of revising, correcting and completing such lists, and for this purpose they shall meet at eight o'clock, a. m. and remain in session until eight o'clock p. m." Voters who did not participate in, the primaries and those who have be come voters since that time should see that they are registered on Oct 30th and thus avoid the necessity of "swearing in" their votes on Nov. 6th, 1906. CITY ATTOAREViU. BEGIN SUIT Almost $5*000 Tied Up in Over-Due Light Bills—Go After Dlinquents. The city council held a meeting last evening and opened bids for the fur nishing of electricity for the city. Two bids were put in by the Grand Forks Gas and Electric Co.. one for the fur nishing of a direct current and the other for an alternating current either to be furnished at a cost of three cents per kilowatt. Edward Healy of Red Lake Falls was present and put in a bid for an alternating current at three cents per kilowatt. These bids were referred to the council of the whole together with the city attorney. In vestigation will be pursued as to whether the direct or alternating cur rent is best adapted to the uses of the city. The long over-due light bills came In for considerable discussion and tht matter was finally disposed of by put ting the bills in the hands of the city attorney and instructing him to begin suit at once. During the discussion it developed that there was almost $5,000 pinned up in the light bills. The American tiirl. (Krom Madame of London.) The American girl is a most inter esting contradiction. She is regarded as the world's greatest representative of feminine freedom, and yet, at the root of her character, she is the most prudish of girls. She makes the best friend for a man, and yet his worst lover. She can not deny that she is a flirt, and yet she is at heart bard and selfish. She will do the most uncon ventional things, and yet in no part of the world is etiquette more Insisted on than in American society. News of a terrible accident at Ep plng, N. D. as a result of which one man lies in a hospital with a broken back and another man named John son was injured has been received here. LIBmRIANS' SCHOOL PROPOSED FOR CITY Proposition for Establishment of Such an Institution Be ing Furthered. ONLY FEW SUCH IN U. S. Plan is Under Consideration of the University Board of Regents Now. If plans which have been undei consideration for the several weeks, and which are being ardently pushed every day, carry, as now seems an assured fact. Grand Forks will, in the course of a few months, be the seat of a school of learning, of which there are not in all a half a dozen of the kind in the United States. The institution referred to Is a school for the instruction and gradua tion of professional librarians. In stitutions of thiB character now exist in but four or five, or possibly sev eral, of the larger cities of the coun try. The two best known are located in New York City and at Washington D. C. The librarian's work is a profession in itself—one that necessitates two years of the hardest and most faith ful study. The matter of establishing a college and course for librarians at Grand Forks was taken up at the last meeting of the board of regents of the state university, with which institution it is proposed to affiliate. The fine new Carnegie library at the state univer sity, the contract for which is to be let at a meeting of the board of trustees the last week of the month, will, when completed, accord librarian students an opportunity of practical study of the subject. The intention Is, it has been announced, to have the librarian's school established in con nection with the new library. Miss Abbott, librarian of the city library, a graduate of a professional school for those of that profession, has been mentioned as a member of the faculty of the institution proposed. The lo'cation of a college for the instruction of librarians in this city would add greatly to the prominence of Grand Fcrks among the cities of the country, largely because of the fact there are so few Institutions of FISK FINED NIAGARA "GAMS" Judge Fisk Assesses John Huth $100 and A. Townsend $35. In the district court this afternoon A. Townsend pleaded guilty to an information charging him with rent ing a building to be used for gambling purposes, and was fined $25. It was shown that when he leased the build ing he stipulated that no illegal busi ness was to be conducted in the same, and was therefore only technically guilty. In view of this the court made the sentence light. John Huth who conducted the place, also pleaded guilty to conducting a gambling re sort and was fined $100 and committed to jail until the same is paid. Both cases were from Niagara. Irving Tilden of Hation Claims Thai He Is the Victim of a Land Fraud. A prosperous farmer residing near Hatton, Irving Tilden by name, is on the warpath after someone whom he claimed had showed him a piece of land in Billings county and sold him another piece. Mr. Tilden stated that he purchased the land about two years ago as an Investment. He went to Billings county with the land dealer and was shown a nice plat of 1,000 acres of bottom land near the Mis souri river and on his return pur chased the land, paying down $2,100 on the contract. He thought little more about the deal until recently, when he desired to realize on his in vestment. To his surprise he discov ered that the land he looked at was not 'the land he purchased. The deed called for land located about two miles from the land he looked at and in stead of securing nice level bottom prairie, he secured hilly and rocky land, worth several thousand dollars less than what he thought he was se curing. Mr. Tilden has brought' suit to re cover and on investigation claims to have found others who were treated as badly as he. One of the men Mr. Tilden claims was deceived was Rich ard Sugg, a well known farmer resid ing near Argusvlile, who was shown a fine quarter section, which he thought he was purchasing for $20 per acre, but when he verified the lo cation through the description in the deed he found he had secured another quarter section worth considerably less. THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. His Back Broken By Fall M. Gruel, the man whose back is said to be broken, is in a hospital with a plaster cast about his body, but his injuries are of such a nature, that recovery seems doubtful. The two men were working on a grain elevator and were on a scaffold the character in the United States. Doubtless students would come long distances to enroll. Neither Min neapolis or St, Paul have advantages of the kind to offer and western students who desire to pursue such a course of study, are compelled to go east. On account of the fact that the .proposition is still in the embryo with much yet to be determined, the de tails must be with-held for a later date, but this much can be said—Grand Forks will gain by the establishment of a college for the instruction* and graduation of professional librarians. The officers and directors of the city library board have interested themselves in the matter and are co operating with the university trustees. THE PR06RESS WPRESBVTEIUHISRR Dr. Brown's Report at Langdon Shows Improvements Substantial. The sixth annual report of Synodi cal Missionary, by Rev. Andrew Christy Brown, D. D., to the Presby terian synod of North Dakota, at Langdon, contains the following: The Churches. Self Support. Upon the roll of honor of self-sup porting fields, the following names have been added: Eilendale, Maple ton, Hannah. IlKrannl Appropriation)).

New Building)). New. church buildings have been completed during the year, or are now in progress at the following places: Wimbledon, New Salem, Langdon, Dresden, Rolette.

UNION MADE XuAfUUirtCOCtOtMtNG EVENINGS about forty feet from the ground when the braces gave way, precipitating them to the ground. Gruel fell 36 feet, while Johnson fell over 40. How Johnson escaped without serious if not fatal Injuries, is one of the strange things in connection with the accident. PECU ELECTION AT DEVILS LAKE Held Yesterday Under All the Usual Formalities of Law. TO SETTLE HARD DISPUTE That of Site for New Federal Building Election One-Sided. The most peculiar election ever held in the state under the formalities of law, was conducted at Devils Lake yesterday. It was to determine the location of the new government building at. that place. When the ap propriation was made by congress last winter for one of the best public buildings in the northwest to be con structed at that city, the matter of a building site became rather acute, and this was augmented later by the wonderful boom which that city took on when the railroad improvements were started. It was thought that the location in certain portions of the city would not only increase the value of real estate in that particular localitv, but that it would also have an in fluence upon the business of mer chants who -.were already located in the other portions of the city. Several sites were offered, and at once the selection threatened to rend the en tire community asunder. A few days ago an official from Washington came to the city to look over the sites of fered and select the one to be used. He found the city in a turmoil. The commercial club undertook to settle the matter, but when an attempt was made to reach a compromise, the fac tions drifted farther apart. Senator Hansbrough, who was present, sug gested that the best way to settle the matter was to leave it to a popular vote. In pursuance of this plan, which was accepted by all parties, an election was held yesterday, and by a vote of something like three to one, the corner of Farrington avenue and Fourth street was selected. The other candidate was the corner now occupied by the Robertson Lumber company. The site selected will cost the government $10,000. STAGED IT FROMMOORREM) IN 70'S The visit of Congressman Steener son to this city the other night re called some ancient history in refer ence to the city of Grand Forks. His first visit here was made in company with General W. H. Brown of this city, they coming in from Moorehead by stage and spending as many hours on the trip as it now takes to reach St. Paul, and they did not have a din er and sleeper attached to the stage either. Congressman Steenerson was offered lots in this city then for $100 which are now worth several thous and, but he decided to go on to Crookston and, as a result, is a con gressman instead of being a senator. fifty If II RIG BLOCKS IS III SIGHT So© Road Stared in Face by Shortage and Car Blockade—More Pro. nounced Daily. There is a big car shortage on the Soo lines in the state. The same old story again. More than that, some say the shortage will grow into a blockade before all the grain is moved. Where there are enough of cars there is an insuffici ency of motive power, and where there enough of both the track facilities are inadequate. The immense volume of fall and early winter business is more than the roads of the country can han dle. On the heels of the report that the lumber dealers of the state of Wash ington are going to sue the Northern Pacific because of a delay in the ship .ment of lumber east, comes notice from the Hill lines that for the pres ent they will be unable to receive further consignments of lumber from Washington east. Even now practi cally all the sidings in the mountains, and some of them on both sides of the mountains, are about full of cars load ed with lumber. Conditions on the eastern roads, which not only handle the business which thay originate but have the crops of the west pouring in upon them for export, are in very bad shape. With the approach of winter the movement of coal has swiftly growu heavier, aggravating the congested conditions which already existed, and traffic men say they do not know what they will do for cars when the year's enormous crop of corn is ready for market, as it will be in a short time, and added to the shipments of grain of other varieties. The corn business will not affect roads entering this city as those farther south, but it will take a good many cars that otherwise might be in use on the northern lines. It is reported from Chicago that a line belonging to one of the big east ern systems one day this week had orders for 4,235 cars which it could not fill. It is said the Pennsylvania proposes to give notice that for thir ty-six hours it will receive no con signments from the Pittsburg district, the object being to get time to partly clear the tracks of cars which have accumulated on its lines west. The roads are being flooded with let ters from shippers complaining of their inability to get cars. Meantime railroad .officials are saying the only way to relieve the situation is for the shippers to reconsign and release cars as quickly as possible after receiving them. All the roads are now employ ing men at every large traffic center, whose business it is to visit shippers as their consignments arrive and urge them to keep cars as short a time as possible so they may be sent on again for more loads.

Associated Press to The Braiig TlnM, Washington, D. C., Oct. 16.—Thd Evening Star today published a report that W. E. Corey and Mabelle Oilman will be married in Paris next month. The article says: "Mr. William Ellis Corey, president of the United States steel corporation, and Miss Mabelle Oilman, former ac tress and singer, will be married next month in Paris, according to authori tative information received in this city from friends of both. Mr. Corey has recently leased a most luxurious estab lishment at the French capital, whicl^ is to be the scene of the wedding fes-. tivities. "In Paris Miss Gilman has devoted' her leisure to music and the French language and to the enjoyment of her home, her tastes being naturally domestic. Her health was never suffici ently vigorous for the hardships of j. stago career. "Members of Mr. Corey's family and his business associates are divided in their allegiance to his former and his prospective wife, but the ceremony will have the countenance and pres ence of his sister and brother-in-law, and some of his closest friends and their wives.
