The county commissioners of
Pierce county have deeided to give all
the printing which can be done in the
county to local printers. This is cer
tainly a move In the right direction.
It is what The Evening Times has
been advocating all tbe time. It is to
be hoped that some of the other coun
ties will follow the example of Pierce
and instead of giving the printing,
to concerns which never did a dol
lar's worth of good to the taxpayers
of the county will give it to tbe local
papers which have been instrumental
in bringing in settlers and increasing
the value of every man'« farm in the
The Evening Times believes that
it would be a saving to the counties to
pursue this plan. The printing offi
ces in many of the towns where such
work could be done are compelled to
equip themselves in such a way that
they can do the commercial and other
work which comes to them from the
local customers. They are compelled
to employ a certain amount of help
whether the work of the office is suf
ficient to keep such help employed
all the time or not, because there of
flees can ot lay off the printers when
ever there is a scarcity of work and
then secure their services or that of
others when the work improves.
These printing offices could therefore
afford to do the work in such times as
the custom work is slack at a lower
price than can the foreign house,
whether located in Fargo or Grand
'Forks, which must not only pay high
er rents and keep men on the road to
look after this trade, but pay them
large salaries and heavy expenses
While doing so. The local man know
ing long in advanve what work will
be required, can employ his help dur
ing otherwise idle time on such con
tracts, and with no cost of soliciting.

can save the taxpayers of the county
considerable money.
This is the business side of the mat
ter to the taxpayers. So far as the
papers themselves are concerned, it
is nothing more.'than justice to them
to have the work even at an advance
over the cost of the outside holise if
such were necessary. The local pa
per is largely responsible for the ma
terial prosperity of the community in
which it is published. If that com
munity is prosperous, every citi2en in
it shares in the prosperity. If by ex
plditing the advantages of the com
munity there are three land buyers
where before there was one, the price
of real estate is, advanced according
to the ratio of the supply to the in
creased demand over what it would
otherwise have been. For such
things the local paper is almost en
tirely responsible. What is therefore
more justice to that paper than that
it should be given the business which
rightly belongs to it?
It looks as though the pace for jus
tice to the country press in the state
had been set by the county commis
sioners of Pierce county and that the
day of the local shop which will in
time take much of the work away
from the printing establishments
which have grown rich on the profits
which did not belong to them, and for
which they have never done one thing
eitfter for the advancement of the
state or the county, has departed.
Senator Tillman finds no more apol
ogists in the southern newspapers
than in their northern contemporar
ies. The -south feels that when he
exclaims*"To hell with the law!" and
declares lor settling the: race question
with shot guns he is only making
himself ridiculous, and the south suf
fers from his idiosyncrasies. The best
southern opinion deprecates such in
Sammatory declamation. It seeks to
make the best of the inevitable.
Congressman John Sharp Williams
warns the south of the futility of
seeldng the repeal of the 'Fifteenth
Amendment to the Constitution.
What is described by some of the
southern papers as the "best and tru
est southern sentiment" is that ex
pressed by Bishop fieth Ward, a Texas
prelate of the Methodist church, at a
recent conference at MilledgevlUe,
Ga. He said:
There is no doubt in my mind that
in the negro question the south is fac
ing a serious problem. There is one
thing and one thing alone, capable
of solving the raee problem—that is
the religion of .Te&us Christ. We must
save and edueate the colored people
of the south. If the Christian relig
ion can't save the negro 'in America,
neither can it save the negro hu Africa
and if It cannot save the colored man
wherever he may be located, wlay then
my brethren, it cannot save the white
man. There is no religion that will
hold or is worth the haring that can-,
not save any and every man anywhere
and to the utmost. We mnst treat the
negro charitably, and as a superior
race, as we commonly suppose our
selves to be, should treat an inferior.
The mob spirit which breaks out oc
casionally may make some of us feel
a doubt as to the great superiority of
our race. Let us stand for the salva
tion of these people through the right
kinj of Christian education and in this
way prove ourselves the superior
We are glad to learn from a dis
patch in the Atlanta Constitution that
this sentiment "stirred the conference
to enthusiasm." Some such good", old
fashioned talk in the pulpits of the
south about the duty of carrying the
gospel to the heathen whom they have
right at their doors, about the duty
of saving the souls of their fellow
men, even though they be blaek men
and not across the water, should help
the southern white man to approach
the race problem in a kindly spirit.
Bishop Ward's speech was of the
right sort. That it was received with
enthusiasm and regarded by southern
newspapers as worth notice implies
that such language is not so familiar
from the pulpits of the south as it
ought to be. it is no commonplace.
Southern religious bodies have, per
haps, been looking too far afield in
their missionary zeal. Superiority, as
the bishop says, implies obligation. A
shotgun is a confession of weakness
and cowardice. The superior race
must help the inferior race up the
"world's great altar stairs." If every
preacher in the south talked as Bish
op Ward talks and talked thus repeat*
edly, in season and out of season, for
the set purpose of making the church
an effective force toward alleviating
race troubles, the Tillmans and tbe
Vardamans would be shamed to

It may be possible that for a few

It is said that an effort will be
made in the legislature of South Da
kota this winter to have the legisla
ture change the law which allows per*
sons to procure a divorce in the
courts of the state after a residence of
six months. The fanaticism which is
being developed on both sides of the
divorce question is driving both the
advocates and exponents of liberal di
vorce to extremes. South Dakota,
with its six months residence clause,
is no worse than Kentucky with its
fifteen grounds for absolute divorce
or South Carolina which recognizes no
grounds for at all. That there must
be a reasonable regulation of this sub
ject is conceded by all. But that cer
tain features are the cause of all the
divorce scandals which are occurring
in this country are absurd. Pennsyl
vania has a reasonably rigid divorce
law, yet some of the most nauseating
scandals of the divorce courts come
from that state. The six months res
idence may be a bad thing in general
so far as requiring a residence for di
vorce purposes Is concerned, but it
should be remembered that it is the
liberal grounds and BOt the residence
which makes divorce regulations ob
One of the things whteh the present
legislature should give tbe democratic
governor a chance to have is a thor
ough and exhaustive examination of
every department of the state admin
istration. During the early part of
the campaign It was Intimated by a
tew of the over-iealous though Ill-in
formed papers of the state that there
had been mismanagement of state af
fairs in some of these. It is only jus
tice to the officials, even wlien they
have been re-electetd to their old po
sitions, to have these stories refuted.
It would of course be a considerable
fall for the democratic reform admin
istration to be compelled to give these
republican officials a clean bill of
health, but reform was the cry and
those who won on it should be willing
to stand the consequences.
Candidly now, that was a
stroke of politics which urged the
democratic brethren to stop In the
mad rush for the trough while the
new born Alex McKinzie of the dem
ocratic party landed all the plums.
But will the plea be heeded?

The institution of gift giving of former years was characterized by a giving of things
that appealed to the eye.
Today a change has come over the spirit of the custom and if a gift merely suggests
sentiment it serves only half its purpose.

will not only define your taste but will be a gift in the real se^se of the word. Such
gifts will be doubly appreciated. They represent the thoughtfulness of the giver and at
