THE TRUSTEES COMMISSIONS.
Vhe New Law Known as the Hughes Act KpzulAtiug the Terms and Du ties of all Trustees. As a (food deal of misapprehension ap pears to exist with regard to the present state of the law, regulating the appoint ment and terms of office of trustees of public institutions in Dakota, The Alert kas taken the trouble to get a certified copy of the law, passed at the last ses sion, which is presented below. It has \een generally supposed that the tenure of office act would apply to these officers, and that under thai, act their terms would expire ten days after Gov. Mel lette took office. This assumption is claimed to be incorrect for two reasons. First, This ten day provision is void, becausa it is in conflict with section 62 of the organic act, which gives the governor power to issue commissions to fill vacan cies, when the legislature is not sitting, "which shall expire at the end of the next session of the legislative council." It goes without saying that the legisla ture cannot limit or abolish any power conferred on the governor bjt the organic act. Second, The act printed below was passed on the day before the legislature adjourned, and of course the tenure of office act cannot apply to any offices created or changed since its passage. The present trustees are appointed un der this act, and will hold office until the end of the next legislature unless remov ed by Gov. Mellette. The act is as follows: An uct to provide for the appointment of Trustees for the several Public In stitutions of the Territory of Dakota, and to define their terms of office, du ties and compensation. Be it enacted by the Legislative Assem bly of the Territory of Dakota: Sec. 1. Each of the following named institutions shall be governed by a board of trustees, to consist of five members, to-wit: The Dakota Hospital for the insane. 'Ihe iorth Dakota Hospital for the in sane. The Penitentiary of the territory of Dakota. The Penitentiary at Bismarck. The Dakota school for Deaf Mutes. The ISchool of Mines. The Normal school at Madison, he Mormal school at Speariish. ne Agricultural C«llege of Dakota. The University of Dakota. The University of Nortn Dakota. And the governor shall nominate and by and with the advice and consent of the council shall appoint at this session of the legislative assembly, five trustees for each of said institutions,two of whom shall hold their office for the period of two years, and three for the period of four years, and until their successors are appointed and qualified, except to till va eancies,which appointments shall be made by the governor, and shall extend only to the end of the next session of the legis lative assembly, during which session the governor shall nominate, and by and with the advice and consent of the coun cil, appoint some person to fill the said vacancy for the remainder of the term then unexpired. And the governor at each session of the legislature hereafter shall appoint the trustees for each of said institutions, as in this act provided, and each of said trnstees shall, before enter ing upon the duties of his office, take and subscribe the oath of office prescribed by law. Provided that not more than two trus tees of the same board shall be appoint ed from the same county in which the pnblic institution is located. Sec. 2. The trustees appointed under the provisions of this act shall psosess the powers and perform the duties now pro vided by law for the trustees, directors, members of the board of education, or regents, respectively, of the several insti tutions specified in section one of this act, as hereinfter provided. Sec. 3. the said boards shall not hold more than twelve sessions in any year, and said sessions shall not exceed twen ty-four days in the aggregate, except that the governor may in his discretion authorize additional sessions. Sec. 4. The said trustees shall be en titled to recieve the sum of three dollars per day for each day employed in at tendance upon said sessions and all trav eling expenses necessarily incurred there in. Upon the presentation of the proper vouchers containing an itemized state ment of the number of days of' attend ance and money actually expended, as above specified, duly verified by the oath of the trustee and certified by the presi dent or secretary of the board, the terri torial auditor shall audit said claim and draw his warrant upon the treasnrer for the amount allowe^l to be paid out of tbe territorial tressury. Sec. 5. Nothing in this act shall be so construed as to limit the term of office of any trustee, member of the board of edu cation, director, or regent, who has here tofore been appointed for a definite term. Sec. (J. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its passage and approval. Approved March 7, 1889. LOOTS K. CHURCH, Governor.

Not by investing in infallible cures for consump tion, or champion catarrh remedies— they are like the Yankee peddler's razors, "made to 6ell." The way to save money is by the ability to know a good thing when you see it, and take advantage of it. You can save money at all times by taking "the Burliugton" for Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Omaha, Denver and all "proniinent points in the West and Northwest. The speed of its trains and the certainty of ita connections will 6ave time, and time ia money. The comfort and luxury of its equipment will save worry, and the courteous manners of the employes will save your temper.
