Oliver, the well known bank er of Edgeley, LaMoure county, was in Grand Porks this week looking after a few land deals. Mr. Oliver is ail enthusiastic LaMoure county boomer, and says that settlers are coming into that part of the state at a rapid rate. Mr. Oliver's home town has for some time past been making an effort to secure for itself the title of county seat. At present. LaMoure is the county seat. Some time ago, follow ing the destruction by fire of the La Moure county court house, the Edgeley •people filed a petition with the board or county commissioners, asking them to call a' special election to vote on the proposition of making Edgeley the county seat.

Grand Fori s, N. D. *S** $* s* Vr BOATS WILL BEGIN HAULING ABOUT APRIL 29 Steamer Grand Forks Will Transport. 100,000 Bushels —Navigation Opened. The East Gram! Forks Navigation company, which owns the fleet of barges on the Red river and the two steamers, Grand Forks and the Frani, will start spring hauling on Monday, April 29, and. the barges and boats are being fitted up for the year. An im mense lumber and grain trade is car ried on between down river points and Grand Forks, and a large crew of men are employed from the opening until the closing of navigation. This year the Grand Forks will be the only one of the steamers used in the spring hauling, as it is thought tills one freighter will be able to care for the spring transportation. In discussing the outlook on the river. A. O. Lvstad, one of the prime movers in the company, stated that there would be about 100,000 bushels of grain brought to this city for ship ment this spring. This is considerable less than was brought up last spring, and the figures may be exceeded. However that amount of grain is now in the elevators ready for shipment, or is already contracted for. Last year approximately 500.000 bushels of grain was brought down and of which about 190,000 bushels were hauled in the spring. Eclipse Previous Years. "Besides the quantity of gTain which we will transport," said Mr. Lystad, "there will be a big business in lum ber and other merchandise, and we hope to eclipse all previous records. Most of the grain whfch will be car ried from down river points." Navigation on the river this year opens somewhat later than a year ago as the following table showing the dates of opening for the past twelve years, will show: 1895 April 16 1596 April iS 1597 April 10 1S9S April 15 1899 April 19 1900 April 14 1901 April 9 1902 April 7 1903 April 13 1904 April IS 1905 April 7 1906 April 9 The water in the river at Winnipeg is still on the rise and the ice is.being cleared and the danger of a flood is thought to be passing.

In a decision by Judges Wallace, La combe and Coxe, the United States cir. cuit court of appeals has overruled the contention of the government for the imposition of a 50 per cent duty on im portations of foreign-made fancy sugar wafers. It was maintained by the treasury department that goods of th:'& character are properly dutiable under the provision in the Dingley tariff for "confectionery." It was further urged by the govern ment that if the wafers are, not confec. tiong, they should -be held for duty at 50 per cent as "similar" to confection ery under the similitude section of the law. The government was aided in Its prosecution of the case by the National Biscuit company, which Aeeks to drive out the foreign competition in this country. The Importers, Thomas Meadows & Co., American agents for Huntley & Palmers of Reading, England, denied the classifications for the crackers sought by the government, and insisted that as the merchandise w?« not pro vided for by name in the law, it should be assessed at only 20 per cent as an "unenumerated manufactured article." This claim the appellate tribunal now sustains. Inasmuch as the government has been defeated before the board of appraisers and the circuit court, it Is considered doubtful whether the su preme court will consent to review the case. Mark Twain,, Financier. Mark Twain is the best paid writer in the United States or in the world. No other man in the history of letters, either here or in Europe, ever has re ceived 30 cents a word on a contract that practically is unlimited as to time and absolutely without conditions as to subjects, treatment or anything else. It is unthinkable that Mark Twain should write a story or article and have it rejected. Even in that incon ceivable event, however, he would be paid 30 cents a word just the same. Put into language easily understood, 30 cents a word is equivalent to $360 a column in an average sized news paper. After he returned from his trip around -the world, a journey he under took when he failed in business as a publisher, Clements barely could earn $6,000 a year. I had a talk with him which resulted in a contract to pay 30 cents a word for everything he wrote, whether it was printed or thrown away. No other author ever received more tihan 10 cents a word on a long contract. A. Conan Doyle, the Scotch writer and physician, was $1 a word within a year or two for a new series of detective stories, but the engagement was short and a number of publishers were concerned. Mark Twain earns $50,000 a year. Indeed, I think his income in 1907 will reach $70,000. A great strike for higher wages and shorter hours has been begun by the employes of retail dressmakers and tailors In Vienna. K^mThe C0LT0NBR0S. 204 NORTH THIRD ST.
