Commercial Olub Begins a Systematic Campaign to Boost City. CIRCULARS BEING SENT By Olnb Members in Their Business Letters—Fac- That the Grand Forks Commercial club Is in for boosting Grand Storks at every turn of the road 1b evident, ana one of the first moves of the club for the winter will be the mailing out, Uirough the membeiV, of small circu lars setting forth the advantages of toe city.

Itoe Young Men's Christian associa tion Ib always catalogued among the institutions of the city that work for am intelligent, progressive, moral and sanely religious manhood. The asso ciation owns and occupies a home that cost $60,400. AH of this money was contributed by the citizens of the city as an expression of their belief In the necessity of the association to the ad vancement and well being of Grand Forks. The beautiful building on North Fifth street was planned to meet the needs of a modern association, and the number of young men identified with it demonstrates their appreciation, and also the wisdom of the investment. lAst year over 600 men and boys made up its membership, The privileges of the building ap proximating as nearly as possible those of the home, make it particular ly healthful to students who are in the city from points outside. Travel lag men also find a value In being ac corded membership favors on a mem bership taken in any other assoclation. The breadth of its work is measured by tiie sensible needs of men, so that nearly every man can find something that will Interest and benefit him. A good spirit ordering the way for a good mind in a strong body, is the ob jective.

The city of Grand Forks, North Da kota, with a imputation of 12,000, has the best system of waterworks of any city of its size in the United States. Every drop of water supplied passes through a sand filter which renders it chemically and bacterlologicaUy pure. The water mains extend to every in habited part of the city. The fire department is well equipped and efficiently managed. A paid de partment of tne men is maintained, with a large auxiliary force, and the protection furnished by the pressure In the mains is supplemented by a steam fire engine, chemical, and other up-to-date equipment. Grand Forks was one of the first cities in the Northwest to pave its streets, and it has now about fifteen miles of paving. Wide berms, kept green an closely trimmed, give the residence districts a pafk-llkfe appear ance that is very beautiful. Grand" forks has Hs streets lighted by its own .lighting, plant.' Its sewer reaches to every part of the city, and mast of the houses now built are modern in every particular.. A Park -system has beeh started which wlU be, unequalled in the Northwest. Prices of business and residence property In Grand Forks are lower now than they will ever be again, and there are business opportunities which wilt never be repeated. TROUBLES FORTHETEACHER Small Wonder That School Ma'ams Are Scarce for Work in the Sural Districts. The shortage of teachers in the state is still evident and it has been Impossible to open a large number of schools that should have been opened. Perhaps the young ladles do not like to brave the hardships of teaching school in North Dakota during the winter. Some of the drawbacks of teaching school in the state are shown in the following from the Minneapolis Journal: Acting as janitor tor her own school has been the novel experience of Mis« Madeline Leavitt, a former Minne apolis girl, and a graduate of Ham line, who is now teaching at Zlon, N. D. Describing her experiences as a district school teacher in a letter to a friend, she explains that the $2 a month allowed her for janitor ser vice is insufficient to secure'help, and that she has been obliged to get up early, ride a mile and a half to school, carry out the ashes, sweep, carry in fuel and start the fire. So far, things have gone well under this arrange ment, but Miss Leavitt expects trou ble when the blizzard season sets In. There are only six pupils In Miss Leavitt's school, and so far her duties as janitor have been heavier than her task as school mistress. WSCOHSIK GRAIN STOCK CO. (Incorporated) Dealers in STOCKS,GRAIN, PROVISIONS St Paul Superior Winnipeg Dululb Minneapolis BRANCH OFFICE No, 16 CJWord Bid*. P. B.WADSLBY, NJr. THEMDEPENDENI HELLO UNE Poles Are Up Between Fargo and Janestown—Many Miles to Set Farther West. .Work on the line which the North Dakota Independent Telephone com pany to building is progressing rapid ly. The new trunk line which is to run from Fargo west to Bismarck, where it will connect with lipes which the company now has in operation ex tending from Bismarck to Glendive, Mont, is rapidly nearing completion. Practically all the poles for the dis tant between Fargo and Jamestown have been set, and the stringing of the wires will soon be commenced. As the setting or the poles is the biggest part of the task it will not be long before this portion of the line will be in operation. There is still about seventy-flvd miles of poles to be set between Jamestown and Bismarck but the officials of the company say that a large force of men is being put to work and it is expected that the en tire line from Fargo to Bismarck will becompleted and in operation by Jan. I. An extension line from Ardoch to Minot has recently been completed by the company and when the new line is finished it will be possible, to talk over the lines of the Independent com pany from Moorhead to Grand FVrks, Devils Lake, Minot and other points in the northern part of the state and to Bismarck, Richardton, Dickinson, Medora, Glendive,Mont., and a num ber of other towns to the west. REC0DIFYIN6JF THE LAWS The Task Is a Tedious One—Some Suggestions Being Made. The work of recodifying the laws of a city is a tedious job. The com mission composed of S. G. Roberts and City Attorney Roberts of Fargo to re codify the laws has been in session for several days and they are not near through with their work. Each ordin ance of the city is being carefully gone over by the two members of the commission and as they come across any portions of an ordinance which does not apply to the present age, it is cut out and amendments are prepared which fit the present conditions and needs of the city. The heads of the various departments of the city are meeting daily with the commission- and they have been instrumental in giving pointers as to what is needed in the way of more modern laws fn their department. WILD CAT INSURANCE CO. Concern Premising to Pay More Than is Confronted Ordered to LeaTe Minnesota. Members of the National Protective Legion of New York in this state will be interested in knowing that the or ganization has been prohibited from doing business in Minnesota by Com missioner of Insurance O'Brine. The organization secured Its membership, which had reached the enormous num ber of 136,000, upon the promise that at the end of five years the members would receive more than they had paid in. The commissioner took the grounds that this could only be done so long as there were large receipts from the new members. These would be used in making the payments prom ised but when they were required to pay death losses, naturally there would not only be no money for that purpose but the members would not receive the amounts promised. It was evidently a wild cat scheme, and the commissioner applied to the courts for an order abrogating their right to operate in Minnesota. Following the order of the court, the commis sioner ordered that concern and also the. Modern Protective Association of Sayre, Pa., a similar concern, to leave the state. The latter organization has a membership in this'state and haa been doing business on the lines as in Minnesota and other states. PAT ROONEY WAS HACK Jail Breaker and All Aronnd Crook Did Not Stay In Canada, Bnt Came to North Dakota. That Pat Rooney came back to North Dakota after being released from custody in Winnipeg recently is the firm belief of a number of police officers of this state. Pat Rooney was arrested some time ago in Winnipeg and held for the Williams county authorities, who wainted him for jail breaking and for an assault with in tent to kill. Rooney was held for some time, but on account of the failure of the North Dakota authori tie® to act promptly, he was released. Rooney, it Is claimed, then came to North Dakota, stopped in Grand Forks, Larimore and In Minot, and then going west again. Rooney is regarded as one fthe worst char acters the officers of this state hav* had to deal with. LITTLE GIRLJROS RELATIVE Through Most Pathetic Letter Pub lished In North Dakota Papers, She Will beWitih Sisters. Through the medium of North Da kota papers, little Amy Larter, the 14 year-old orphan, whose pathetic ap peal addressed to the postmaster at Fargo was published, has at last ob tained track of her uncle and two sisters and a letter to that effect has been sent ber. Isaac Coles, whose home is near Langdon and who is in Minot the guest of his son-in-law, Fred Nelson, an employe of Carroll's meat market, read the touching letter from the lit tle girl and instanrly recognized the name of her father as an old friend of his. Alex Rooney, the little girl's uncle, is a well to do farmer near Langdon, while Mr. Coles believes the child has two sisters in Langdon, one of whom is a dressmaker. The family left that part of the country seven years ago, shortly after the illness of Mrs. Larter. and the financial failure of the father. Mr. Coles wrote to the little girl and also to Mr. Rooney at. Langdon. THE WEATHElt. North Dakota—Rain and warmer to night, probably turning to snow and colder Friday.. High northerly winds Friday SCIENCE AGAINST North Dakotans to Play Against Aggies Here on Saturday. PRACTICING IN THE 8NOW High School Championship of the State Will Also be Played Off. The university football team was out last evening plowing around in the snow and putting on the finishing touches to a defense that will' make the viBitlng agricultural college farm ers try all their tricks and pet forma tions. The University Athletic field, despite the snow and the threatening weather, is in fair condition and by Saturday afternoon will be in as good shape as at any time in the season. University rooters are hoping for a clear day as on a smooth field the light 'varsity boys will be able to cope science with weight to a much better advantage. The agricultural col legians average almost 10 lbs. to the man more than the 'varsity boys, as a glance at the following weight, will show "Chick" Conmy at quarter will hardly tip the scales at 148 pounds, while his brother EM, the plucky half, back, is scarcely up to 160. O'Keefe at one end weighs 155 lbs and Davis the other end raises the beam at 151. Bell1 at full back, one of the fastest of the bunch, weighs under 165 and Brannon at right half weighs 164. The center men are a little heavier, though only one man, Captain Burt ness, weighs over 175 pounds. The loss of Duggan at guard is deeply felt as the big fellow with his 215 lbs, of muscle and bone could be depended upon for star work, both on the offence and defence. Brown at left tackle had a shoulder bone Injured in the last Intercolegiate game at Fargo and has not been out in a uniform since that time.. The high school, boys are all eager for the coming championship game with Fargo, to be played on Saturday afternoon .before the University A. C. game. It will be called at one o'clock, and cars will leave Third street In plenty time for the contest. The snow banks have kept the boys under cover for the past week, but they are never theless confident that the supremacy of Grand Forks in the football line will be carefully guarded as far as Fargo's aspirations are concerned. Right half back Sullivan, one of the heaviest and nerviest men on the team, will not be in the game Saturday ow ing to several broken bones in his hand received in a fall on Monday afternoon. The boys had been having signal practice on the stage In the Metropolitan opera house, when the accident, which will cripple the team to a certain extent. Van Alstine will have to be switched from end to half and-Wells will probably go in at end. Wells did good work in the Grafton game and is expected to show up to good adavantage in the final struggle. FISK ON THE Recently Elected Judge of Supreme Court States His Position Re. gardlng the Jndgrshlp. Whether Judge Fisk will qualify for the supreme bench before Jan. 1, and thus give Governor Sarles an oppor tunity to appoint his successor on the district bench at Grand Forks, or whether be will wait until after' the first of the year, thus throwing the appointment into the bands .of Gov erhor-elect Burke is: the question which is agitating political circles To this question no satisfactory an swer can be given, for Judge Fisk ap parentlyvhas not yet decided what he will do. The judge was in Fargo on Wednesday and.said to the Forum: "I have..not yet been officially noti fied of my election to the supreme bench of the state, and cannot qualify until I am notified. That will probably not be much before Dec. 15." The judge said that there is no truth in the statement that he is watting to find out whom Governor Sarles in tends to designate as his successor be fore qualifying. "That statement is entirely unau thorized," said Judge Fisk, "and it is not true. Whether I will qualify be fore Jan. 1 depends on whether I can get all my work on the district bench cleaned up before that date. I begin a term of court in Nelson county on Monday and all the other judges are so busy that it is impossible to get anyone to take my place." Asked how he felt over the election Judge Fisk replied that he did not see any reason for feeling a bit blue. LIGNITE UK ARE SOLD One of the Biggest Deals in History of Williams Connty Pulled Off.

Kyr,A.,r-j l^i r\ I STORE PAGE FIVB IKE QUEST! TIKES IKW III Some Discussion of Asphalt Among Property Owners— Inspection Wanted. CREOSOTE EXPERIMENT Indianapolis Not Satisfied Af ter a Trial of Them and Offi cial Gives Season. The paving matter has received a new impetus since the meeting of the Commercial club Tuesday evening and a number of suggestions have been made in reference to the kind of ma terial to be used. A. W. Felty, rep resenting an ashphalt concern, has. been in the city for a couple of daya. in the Interest of that kind of pave ment and if the representations which he is making are true, it would be well to give that class of pavement a hearing. He contends that the life of creosote blocks is not more than ten years and that, In a couple of years, the oil is exaporated and the blocks become nothing more than ordinary wood. Another argument which ie be ing used against the blocks is that they bulge in the spring when thaw ing takes place and thereby render the streets unfit for use. But the greatest argument in favor of asphalt and against the blocks is in the cost, the difference being something like fifty cents per square yard in favor of the former. The use of creosote blocks is something of an experiment it seems, and their use is limited as yet to a very few cities. One of these is In dianapolis, and the following letter from the street commissioner of that city gives some idea of the success of the experiment there: "In regard to my past experience and observation of creosote wooden block pavement, I was superintendent of streets in the city of Indianapolis when the first creosote wooden block pavements were Mid in 1897, and everyone was highly pleased with them and thought the street paving question was solved. But when the first frost came, the people driving horses all changed their minds. The pavement was so slick that the hones could not stand on them. They would slip and fall and they could not use the streets unless the horses were rough shod. "After the pavements were down a few years the creosote oil had evaporated and allowed the blocks to take water, which caused them to ex pand, and if the curbstones would not yield, up went the blocks in great mounds here and there so as to make the streeets Impassable. "In the spring of 1904, under the Holtzman administration there was at least one mile of creosote wooden block streets which had only been laid a few years, namely: Noble street, Ohio street, and Southeastern avenue, which were washed away by water getting under the blocks and carrying them off, leaving the concrete founda tions undisturbed. Notwithstanding that the city had a nine-year guarantee on these streets, the contractors re fused to restore or repair them. "The city had to repair the streets, and not only that, but they had to pay salvage for the blocks which were gathered up, which was about one fifth of the blocks and had to buy the balance.
