TRUE PATRIOTISM. Senator Taylor of this city inau gurated a plan while at Bismarck which is destined to make the prin ciples which should make the observ ance of our national birthday world wide and at the same time inspire the patriotism of Americans in every land and in every clime. He intro duced in the senate the following re solution, which was later passed by the house and properly engrossed and sent to the president of the United States through the proper official channels Be It resolved by the senate of the state of North Dakota, the house of representatives concurring: That for the purpose of promoting and perpetuating the love of home, country and the flag among American citizens wherever dispersed upon the face of the earth, the president of the United States be, and is hereby, re spectfully requested to issue, thirty days prior to the Fourth of July, 1907, and upon the same day every year thereafter, a proclamation to the following effect: That at one o'clock p. m., Wash ington time, July the Fourth, or such other time on that day as may seem most expedient, and at the same hour in all other climes and countries ac cording to the separate divisions ot standard time within the United States and as calculated by astrono mical deduction elsewhere throughout the globe, American citizens be urged to assemble in such groups or assem blages as may be most convenient and unite in singing "Home, Sweet Home," "America" and "Star Span gled Banner," and that military, ma rine and other bands, wherever possi ble, render the notes of these inspir ing airs in military establishments, upon warships and in civic assem blages of citizens, that the echoes of these patriotic and exalting airs may he heard at the same hour and minute around the world, and be it further Resolved, That this suggestion be conveyed to the president of the Unit ed States by the secretary of state of North Dakota through a copy of these resolutions properly engrossed. The history of the development of Ithe idea is interesting. It was form ulated two years ago while the sen ator was serving his first term in the state senate, but, as he expressed it, the psychological time for its intro duction had not yet arrived and he carried it till the present session was well advanced. He had the resolu tion prepared and on his desk ready to be introduced at any time. At the opening of the senate session on March fourth, the sun shone from a sky as blue as those of Italy and the crispiness of the air was just suffi cient to give to every person an inspiration to the things which are highest and noblest in life.

It was in troduced and passed with a display of patriotic fervor that would have done honor to the original event which the resolution was seeking to commemorate. It was sent to the house and at the suggestion of Re presentative Stevens was concurred in, spread upon the house records and the senate was notified of the action of the house within four minutes after the time it had reached that body. The sentiment is in such harmoni ous keeping with the teachings and ideals of the president that there is hardly room to doubt but that he will act upon the suggestion and comply with the requests of the resolution. Should he do so, instead of the fall ing away of the patriotism which was so remarkable in the early days of the republic, Americans who have carried their enterprises into every quarter of the earth will stand with uncovered heads beneath the stars and stripes whUe a hundred million voices unite in the rendition of the inspiring melodies which have led men to face death unflinchingly on a thousand battlefields, and inspired the souls of patriots to rise to the sub limest heights of devotion to country and mankind, and all blended with the gentle words of that sweetest of all refrains, especially to him who wan ders in a strange land, "Home, Sweet Home." Senator Taylor has set in motion a plan which in the years to come, following the course of the midday sun in his circuit through the heavens, will on the natal day of the nation, encircle the earth with one ringing and inspiring strain of patriotism and love of home and native land. A GOOD SCHEME. The concurrent resolution which was passed by the legislature in the last few hours of the session pro viding for the adoption of a constitu tional amendment in reference to the methods of disposing of the state school and institution lands was one of the wisest business measures which the legislature enacted. The proposed amendment permits the purchaser of any of the state lands to pay for the same and receive a title from the state at the end of any interest pay ing period after the expiration of the first five years, by paying six months interest In advance. There is something to be looked after in the disposal of these lands besides the mere accumulation of a gigantic fund, important as that is. The state needs a working farmer on every quarter section of tillable land. It not only needs him as a citizen but it needs him as a tax payer and a contributor to the gen eral prosperity of the state. The state school and institution lands are often the best in the communities and while they increase in value because The Boston Store LOUIS: ROSENTHAL. Prop. We present a great showing in our Millinery Department this week marked at Reduction Prices. We have just received a lot of Ladies,' Misses' and Children's Slippers and Oxfords. Prices range up from 48c. Come in and see our Spring Styles in all lines. A pleasure to exhibit goods. The|Boston Store Louts Rosenthal, Prop. 14 South Third St. of the general development of the country, they remain, nevertheless, mere waste places in what should be prosperous communities. They con tribute nothing to the taxes of either the state or the county. The property which their cultivation would add to the taxable value of the state is lost. While it is true that this land, es pecially in the older parts of the state never goes begging for purchas ers it is also true that much more of it would be sold if the purchasers did not have to wait twenty years to complete their title to the same and get it so that it is a marketable commodity. This has been impossi ble under the twenty year contract system in vogue in the state in the past. The new plan, if it should be adopt ed, will open the way for both the man who has little money and de sires to secure a home-with a small payment and the opportunity to make the rest of the purchase price out of the land and his own energy, as well as the man who desires to convert the raw prairie into productive farm and put his energy and his business sagacity 011 the market in the sale of the same after it is im proved. The only objection which can be urged against the disposal of the lands in the manner proposed un der the constitutional amendment is that there is already a large sum of money in the state educational fund which the board of university and school lands finds considerable diffi culty in investing at profitable rates of interest, and the old plan prac tically invests the purchase price for twenty years at the time of the sale. The payment of six months' interest in advance allows the board that time to secure an investment for the mon ey without loss of interest to the state. It is thought the plan pro posed will cause more rapid settle ment of the state school and institu tion lands and will materially in crease the taxable property of the state, thereby reducing the taxes of the entire people. STILL PLUNDERING. A few months ago the Herald made a set of special assessment records for the city of Grand Forks upon which no bids were asked and it charged the city $62.00. Since that time the city needed a duplicate set of the same books and asked for bids on the same. The Evening Times bid $50 on the job and at that price was making a good business profit The Herald bid on the same job $49.50 and was awarded the con tract. The Evening Times has no objection to the contract being award ed to the Herald at the price, but it does desire to call attention to the difference which that institution charged for work when it had no opposition and what it charged for a duplicate of the same work when there had been an increase in the cost of printing materials, but in which it was compelled to meet busi ness competition. If the Herald will indulge in such sharp practices in its own city and with the people who have always ac corded it a liberal patronage, what can the taxpayers of the state expect from it when it secures county print ing without competition? If it does not hesitate to charge twenty-five per cent more for a job than it is worth in Grand Forks, would it hesitate to do the same or worse in the counties? Can such a concern be trusted in the handling of county and state print ing? Is not the Herald still' using a duplicate system of its famous thir ty-six per cent state printing steal? One of the things which this city needs in the way of good advertising material and ond which should be given attention by the Commercial club is a booklet illustrative of the city and its advantages. The booklet should be printed on high gTade paper, be brim full of illustrations and so full of facts and information that it would give the stranger a perfect and comprehensive idea of the commercial and material advantages of the city. Let the Commercial club get busy. Other cities in the state are doing the same thing and Grand Forks can not afford to be a trailer. Grand Forks will ask for bids on at least eight kinds of paving. Once it was supposed there would be noth ing considered except the creosote blocks, but it now looks as thongh there would be a chance to determine the real cost and advantages of the several kinds.

Did you have any further con versation with him. A. Yes in a little while I asked him why he killed the girl and he replied: "There are some letters in my pocket book that will explain that." He testified thai at the time of this visit he detected the fumes of alcohol from the breath of the defendant. Witness aroused the defendant from sleep about 12:30 o'clock. The de fendant having fallen to sleep about 12. Upon being awakened and being told that be would bave to get ready for a journey, he replied: "Are they going to take me away tonight." "Is tiie train In." There had been no train in Fairdale for four weeks and none expected. When taken into the hotel office and seeing the hand-cuffs in the possession of the deputy sheriff, defendant inquired if they were going to place them on his feet too. Witness asked the defendant at the time of his second visit to the room. "Have you been drinking today," and the defen dant replied: "Nothing more than I know what I am doing." Intoxicated. The question being asked as to the witness' opinion to the sanity or insan ity of the defendant at that time, he replied that, in his opinion, the de fendant was sane. Q. Was he intoxicated or not in toxicated? A. Intoxicated. On cross-examination, attorney Sinkler endeavored to introduce be fore the jury 'some of the answers of the witness at the preliminary hear ing, but was shut out by the court. Had No Right. In endeavoring to break down the testimony of the witness who had been called by the state merely as a lay man the defendant's counsel sought to qualify the doctor as an expert and failing in that because of objections endeavored to propund questions with in the province of an expert. The court held that a physician called by the state and asked such questions as could be answered by a lay witness, the defense had no right to assume that he was an expert and question him along those lines? Wm Considered. He doctor stated that his opinion when based was upon facts and cir cumstances surrounding the homicide what he had beard and observed of the defendant's actions and also upon bis experience as a practicing physician. Q. The matter of the sanity or in sanity of the defendant was duly con sidered by you at the time that you formed your opinion? A. I considered the matter of in toxication or 'nonrintoxlcafcion more than anything else. On motion of the defendant's counsel the answer was stricken from the record. When questioned further as to the conversation be remembered that the defendant had asked the night of the homicide answered. "He said are the street cars running," or, "off the track." Q. Ordinarily it was an incoherent conversation that be was carrying on at that time? A. Why, I don't know as incoher ent would express it exactly. Some thing that people generally call non sense. Q. Doctor, did the defendant say anything about his head? A. Yes, the Becond time I was in the room be said that bis head felt funny or felt bum, I can't recollect which. Sleep of Intoxication. Q. Was the defendant at the time he was asleep in a sleep of intoxica tion? A. Apparently. In my opinion, yes sir. Counsel during the entire examina tion laid great stress on. the fact that the sleep coming five hours after the commission and that length of time after the defendant was without in toxicating liquor could not bave been caused by the effects of the liquor, and must, therefore, have been brought on by a mental affliction. Not much sense is required to write poetry, but a good deal of sense Is re quired to understand it. A great many people see themselves a* others see them, but they don't be lieve what they see.
