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
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,
The Dakota Hospital for the insane.
'Ihe iorth Dakota Hospital for the in
The Penitentiary of the territory of
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
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
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
Sec. (J. This act shall take effect and
be in force from and after its passage and

How To Save Money.
Not by buying soap—though "soap" is
a good thing to carry elections. 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. For
