It Is to Make the New Law go Into Eft'eot as Soon as Possible. TH? "Emergency Clause" is Worrying the Temperance People Somewhat. A Preposition Pending to Make Major Hamilton the Chief Clerk for Life. Lawmaker's Labors BISMABCK, Dec. 11.—[Special corres pondence.] The prohibitionists are tightening the lines around the liquor men. The house temperance committee today reported back Bowe's bill for the "pulverization"—as Nasby used to say— of the traffic, •with a number of amend ments. The committee compromised on May 1 as the date when the law shall become operative and the report was unanimous. The house adopted it and the bill was sent to the engrossing com mittee. It will come up tomoirow in both houses. The bill in the senate was reported just as it was introduced—with the time January 1, 1890. The liquor men are talking about seeing what they can do, but don't feel very hopeful. It will require a two-thirds vote of both houses to make the bill go into effect before July 1, and a fight will probably be made to insert that date. It is the best the liquor men can do. Roney introduced a railroad bill today. It is almost identical with the substitute for house bill 22, introduced last winter. No. 22 was the alliance bill presented by Fletcher, and the substitute was pro posed by the railroad committee, but Morris knocked it oat with the Minne sota law, which he incorporated in 296. There were several other bills of gener al interest today. McDonald's gives Tallev City her portion of the spoils in the public building deal,and appropriates 340,000 for the construction of a normal school. Cole got in two center shots—one at usurers, which fixes 10 per cent as the legal rate and makes provision for tte forfeiture of the whole amount if a high er rate is exacted and another aimed at exemptions, enumerating what is exempt for the poor man and giving the rich man a homestead to the value of $5,000. Selby introduced along provision gov erning prosecution and trial on informa tion, and Tyler one of equal length permiting foreign executors and adminis trators to assign, satisfy or foreclose mortgages, attachments and liens. Williams put in a Sunday school bill. It is similar to the one introduced by "Brer" Mallory last winter and gives barbers due notice that the favorite pic ture papers and all publications of an immoTal pictorial or descriptive nature must be ostracised. Richardson, as if to get all the morality in a bunch, came next with a bill putting it on to Sabbath breakers and raising the penalty suppos ed to follow their detection from $1 to 810. Stadleman sent in a measure which its title says is for the protection of public credit, and Reed showed his disposition to make railroads and Dersons responsible for damages resulting from prairie fires started by them. Three bills had their third reading to day but all were recommitted, that tech nical omissions might be rectified. WHAT THE SENATE DID. Swanston's capital removal bill was killed today. The vote was close. Haggart's bill, providing for the main tenance of the Fargo agricultural college, passed the senate, with only five oppos ing votes. LaMoure's bill, providing that insur ance companies, against which judg ments or executions exist, cannot ds busi ness in the state, was adopted nhani monslv. LaMoare introduced a bill for the pro tection of the public credit. It provides that the interest on temporary state in debtedness shall be reduced from 8 to 6 per cent and that funding warrants shall not be issued in excess of 850,000. Diesem presented a bill for a timber cultnre bounty. Seventeen members of the senate, who bad gone to the ante-rooms to smoke and talk, were brought before the bar for reprimand, but on motion the proceed ings were dismissed. The ji.ke will cost the delinquent senators all their spare change for cig®r? and wet goods. John Haggart is happy over the pass age of bis agricultural college bill in the senate. It may have a harder time in the house. ad gets even with the insurance com panies, one of which owes him $1,700. The temperance bill comes up in the senate tomorrow. XISCELIIAXSOCS MSHTIOJf. The house is just now in the throes of an interesting contention as to the all around effect of "emergency clauses." The constitution provides that where an emergency exists, a bill may become operative immediately by the insertion of sucb a clause, provided it receives the votes of two-thirds of all the members. The question has arisen: If such a bill fail of the requisite two-thirds, does such failure kill the whole bill, or merely the emergency clause It would seem that the whole bill would be killed. To cover the case, Williams yesterday introduced anew rule, providing that in such cases the bill shall be considered reconsidered, when the emergency clause can be stricken out and the bill again tried for a majority vote. The farmers and prohi bitionists took fright at the proposition and the rule was not considered. Today Williams again brought up the matter and MeCormaek offered a substitute. Consideration of both was postponed. Notwithstanding the fact that Lieu tenant Governor Dickey iB considered the beet presiding officer the upper house ever had, and the fact that he has the pushing or driving foree which facilitates business, the house so far, has been by far the most industrious of the two bodies. In bills introduoed, the "plebes" are a good per cent in the lead and in miscellaneous business they have accomplished infinitely more. This con dition is due partly to the fact that the house has more men experienced in the ways and by-ways of legislation, but more considerably to the invaluable as sistance rendered by Chief Clerk Hamil ton whenever and wherever assistance and guidance is necessary. The major keeps things running orderly and rapidly and time,which once lost, is gone forever, never loses itself in the major's vicinity There is a good deal of talk here of making the chief clerkship a life posi tion and giving it to the major. Such a thing has been done in several states. President Dickey of the senate, re quested the privileges of the floor of that body for Bob Wallace, the chief clerk of last session and the assistant clerk of the preceding session. The popular Robert was accorded this without kick, of course. Clerk of Court Hoskins of Bathgate, has one of the best offices in the state. It is worth at least a couple of thosand. This is better than editing a weekly newspaper in the wilds of Pembina county. A Narrow scape. A young woman got off of No. 1 Friday morning and reported at the general office, that her father had disappeared from the train, this side of Fargo. Superintendent McCabe at once insti tuted inquiries by wire and learned that the man was last seen when the train was in the vicinity of Oriska. From that station men were sent out to search for the missing passenger. He was found wandering aimlessly about on the prairies a mile from th* track, east of Oriska and appeared to be badly injured. Dr. Vidal of Valley City, was *ent for and discovered that his shoulder blade had Aeen dislocated, that he bad sus tained several severe scalp wounds and other less dangerous bruises, besides freezing his hands. He was taken to the hotel at Valley City and is now re ceiving the best possible attention and it is thought that he will reoover. He fell from the train while passing from one coach to another. His daughter is now with him. His name is G. Boehler. They were traveling west on emigrant tickets. Where they are from is not known here. Tax Payer's Union. The Taxpayers' Union met Tuesday evening, December 10,1889, in Attorney Camp's office, President W. E. Greene in the chair. On motion of udge Rose, the follow ing resolution was adopted: Resolved. That it is the sense of this meeting that the grand jury system of our state should be abolished, and that our representatives in the legislature be, and they are hereby requested to work to that end. On motion of Anton Klaus the follow ing resolution was adopted: Resolved, That our county commis sioners be, and they are hereby requested by the Taxpayer's Union of Stutsman county,to issue no more "poor orders" io paupers, but instead. therof that to worthy applicants for assistance, they individually furnish to all such applicants the articles and supplies to be given, and to publish the amounts of money so ex pended and the names of the parties re ceiving aid. On motion of A. C. McMillan the fol lowing resolution was adopted: Be it resolved. That it is the sense of this meeting that a law should be passed whereby appeals from the decision of the justice of the peace in civil actions should be limited to cases wherein the jndgment rendered exceeds the. sum of fifteen dollars. On motion, Messrs. Camn, Sanford and Frye were appointed a committee to draft a bill, providing for a more eco nomical management of county offices. On motion. Union adjourned for one week. E. M. SAKFOBD, Secretary. Thanks to Senator Haggart. It is a pleasure «for John Haggart'a friends to see bis real worth recognized and his snccessful efforts to benefit Far go and Cass county fully appreciated at home. He is worth a train load of ordi nary men in whatever position be is placed, and the sooner the people of Dakota learn this fact and act upon it, the better it will be for the state at large. This is the way the Fargo board of trade expresses itself upon his course in the state senate: Resolved, That the board of trade and the citizens of Fargo, most cordially en endorse and approve of the agricultural college bill introduced by Senator Hag gart, and heartily commend the efforts and action taken by the representatives from Fargo and Cass county, and. that of the other members of the legislature who so generously acted with them. The city council feels as if a public acknowledgment of the valuable services rendered was due the braad-guage, weighty representative from the Ninth senatorial district, and performs the duty in this manner: Resolved, That we cordially endotse the action of J. El Haggart in introduc ing the bill providing for the issuance of bonds for the building of the agricultu ral state college at Fargo that we grate fully appreciate the generous snpport given the bill in the senate and by all the members of the house from Cass county, and request a continuance of the same, until the bill shall be finally passed. Resolved, That the auditor be instruct ed to send a copy of these resolutions to the senator and representatives from the Tenth district. JOHN HAGGART'S BILL. It Sails Through tin? Senate with but Five Dissent ing Votes. The Measure wjis Frist Present ed in the Territorial Leg islature of '82. Swaiistou Gets $5,000 for a Deaf and Dumb Asylum at Devils Lake. Iu Legislative Halls BISMABCK, Dec. 12.—[Special Corres pondence]—"John Haggari's bill" is the title of_ the Fargo agricultural college bill. Everybody, at least, knows the bill best by the above description. It passed the senate yesterday by an overwhelm ing vote. That was a big compliment, to its author in the first place, for a deter mined opposition seems to exist against making appropriations for any of the new institutions. Ever since the college was located way back in 1882, there has been a series of ups and downs in its career. Once nearly lost by failure to comply conditions, it was again secured and now it seems that Champion John Haggart is the man who has to come forward and, by his personal efforts and great populari ty, put the institution on the highway to its certain and successful future. If he succeeds, Fargo will owe him a debt of gratitude not easy to liquidate. Fargo And Cass county never had, in fact, a more faithful worker, a stronger friend, and a better representative than Hon. John Haggart. He is liked and trusted by everybody and if the bill goes through the house, it will be largely due to his nntiring and loyal efforts, assisted by the steady support of his staunch friends, and by the other members of the dele gation, working nnitedlv. All the boys are for Haggart and for "Haggart'a bill" and that means everything. It does not seem to an outsider that Fargo appreci ates the work being done in her behalf by Senator Haggart. If not, the sooner the people there awake to the fact that a cordial and substantial support at home will be but a slight recognition for the work done, in face of many obstacles, the better. There area number of reasons why the agricultural college should he pushed forward next year. The United States government annually appropriates $15, 000 for experimental stations in all the states, and as the agricultural college will have this station for North Dakota attached, it wilj be the gainer by just that much: and of course the soon er the money is to be had from tike general government the better. Then again,the plan to rnise the $20,000 appro priated in the bill will not make it a hardship to any one, as the money is to be obtained by 4 per cent bonds issued on the lands set apart for the support of the college. During the regular session the old fa miliar ghost of the capital removal ap peared, and was knocked out again. Members seem to have lost all fear of its threatemngs and joked plentifully in its presence. No one seemed to believe that the bill was introduced in good faith. During the vote no interest was manifested. Not even a Bismarck cro was on hand, scared to death, as paBt occasions. Little interest was token in its fate, there being more bet ting done on whether the sergeant-at* arms would get all the lambs back to the fold or not. There was no excitement when the vote was finally announced, al* though it was close, being 17 to 13 in fa vor of indefinite postponement. Senator Bailey Fuller voted to "re move," of course. The record shows Bailey on deck, and right every time. But he, as well as every one e!se, knew the bollowness of the bill and foresaw how quickly the whole would collapse when punctured. The scamps and frauds in North Da kota are sometimes plausible letter writers. They are at present engaged in corresponding with the relief agents in the Twin Cities and, of course being un known, often impose upon them. So frequent have these impostors done this of late, that Governor Miller got the leg islature to pass a joint resolution today, authorizing the commissioner of agri culture and labor, Mr. Helgeson, to re port to those people having supplies to donate who are the proper persons in the different localities in the state to distribute the supplies. Any requests to distribute donations hereafter will have to be recommended by Commissioner Helgeson before the same can be turned over. Of course this will not interfere with the work of the county commission ers. Representative Lilly and Commis sioner Helgeson left tor Mcintosh coun ty tonight, to investigate the claim* of destitution, which have been made by a party who is not known to be the proper person to intrust with the distribution of any supplies. The irrepressible Dr. Swanston of Devils Lake, who read along list of deaf and dumb children to back him, but whose presence in the counties accred ited to them were a subject of surprise to the residents, got a bill through tto senate by a two-thirds vote locating the state deaf and dumb school at Devils Lake and appropriating 95,000 for ex penses. Mr. Dodds introduced a bill in the senate providing that security given on any crop, the seed of which has not been sown, shall be null and void. A bill introduced by Mr. MeCormaek* commissions the state auditor and treas urer to settle accounts with South Da kota. HOCSFE. The house today fixed the time when it shall be unlawful to "go out to see a man" or to be "interviewed" on the irri gation question at May 1st. The consid eration of the bill occupied nearly all the afternoon. The opposition made a num ber of dilatory moves and endeavored to have the matter postponed, but the prohis forced the issue. Although con siderable opposition was manifested at the date—May 1st—and although Mr. Milsted's motion that the consideration of the bill be postponed until Jan. 10th received 11 votes, yet when the bill came up for final passage, there were 59 ayes to 1 nay. Zimmer, the Grand Forks democrat, cast the only negative vote. He is next to the last man on the roll call and knew that the bill was carried, but probably voted his convictions. In making his motion to postpone until January 10, Mr. Milsted said that at that time there would be no license law in force. He thought towns like Jamestown might get some revenue from saloons, and the saloon men might be willing to take out licenses, provided the voting upon the bill be postponed until the 10th of January, although he knew that they could not be compelled to. The motion was defeated. Mr. Milsted then arose and further expressed himself on the subject. He said he had urged the postponement because the saloon men nnd those intei ested in the liquor traffic were, as a rule, dishonest and in clined to take advantage of every loop hole offered that tiiey were not a law abiding olass, and would not pay when they could get out of it. He thought they would sell right along and pay no license any now, and the law therefore ought to go into effect January 1, next. But he did not like to have the republi can party held respopsible for the pro hibitory law, as in his opinion it would surely turn the state over to the democ racy, just as it has in Iowa, where he came from. The roll was called and prohibition, on May 1, went sailing through the house like a bird with wings. It may find a more obstructed passage in the senate. A minority of the judiciary committee has reported favorably on Mr. Lutz' bill requiring attorneys to take out license, ana there will probably be some fun over it. The majority report was unfavorable. INCIDENTALS. There are more than the usual com plaints about the failure of the mails to connect. Bundles of daily papers are carried by here, and even the important letter mail is irregular in its arrival. Bis marck, with interrupted papers and let ters, is not a place in December for tem perate or philosophical resignation under punishment, and the kicking done in consequence is highly expressive. For some reason the mail clerks are reduced in force from Jamestown to Mandan, on the west bound trains. Only one man is sand to be'on duty and the heavy mails to the capital at this season, when the legislature is in session, makes it impossi ble for one elerk to do the work. East bound mails are "tied out" by the post master here as far as possible,to help the clerk on duty. The surplus could have, here a satisfactory means of exit in the' previeion for sufficient clerks to handle the mails on the Northern Pacific. Mrs. Spencer, wife of ex-Senator Spen cer of Alabama, is here with her husband, vho has been stopping in Bismarck since the senatorial election. Mrs. Spencer is a lady of distinguished presence and brings a flattering reputation for social and personal accomplishments. She re sides much in New York and Washing ton, but bends gracefully to North Da kota conditions when in contact there with. Senator Spencer and Al?x Mc Kenzie are interested in some Pacific coast speculations. A good many of the members would like to adjourn this week, Friday, and go home to remain until after the first of January. But the majority will stay where they are. After the first, business will begin in earnest. Committees nr* getting familiar with their duties and a good deal of exoelllnt legislation is in the process of hatching. Among the Jamestown people here to day are R. E. Wallace, B. S. Russell and John Waugh. Mrs. John Gregg, wife of Governor Miller's secretary and right hand man, Captain Gregg of Wahpeton, came in to day. They will go te housekeeping if a suitable residedce can be procured. Mrs. Gregg is an accomplished lady who will grace society at the capital this winter. Attorney E. W. Camp is looking up some measures of interest in his line. It may be possible that his desirable ser vices will be required later on, to assist the judiciary committee of the senate, where the absence of practicing attorneys is now painfully apparent. After the holidays, work in both houses will begin in earnest. THEIR OCCUPATION'S GONE. The Day of Cattle Kings in Montana Has Passed—The Number of Cattle Decreased 700,000 in three Years. "No stockman in Montana," says Hon. Conrad -Kohrs to a Davenport, Iowa Gazette reporter, "has made any money daring the last four years. The winter of 1886-87 was the worst we ever saw out there. Tne average loss of the entire herd of Montana that winter. I think, was 65 per cent., or putting it in money yalae not less than 830,000,000. Of course the losses were not uniform all over the territory for in some places they ran up to 00 per cent, almost wiping out the live aback, while in others they were not more than 25 per cent, owing to more favorable conditions of shelter. Two ssasona of drouth, the one follow ing the other, and then the, heavy snow storms and odd weather wert enough to make the stoutest herders lose courage." Of the prospects for the next ten yean Mr. Kohrs did not speAks with the great est oonfidenoe. He thinks that the beef oattle interests may be decreased, as sheep and horses are getting into the country snd these are not the friends of cattle. They are driving the cattle out. He estimate* that there are in Montana today not very much more than 1,000,000 head of cattle, whereas three years since there were from 1,600,000 to L.700,000 head. The number is now increasing again. Last year pro! ably 20,000 bead were driven into Montana, and this vear the number may run up to 200,000. The cattle imported came from, Texas. Idaho snd Washington. OMAN'S SUFFRAGE. A Bill to Grant the Dears the Much-Coveted Elective Franchise, Shows it Hoary Head and Grin ning Visage in the Legisla ture Once More. A Normal Seliool Needed in North Dakota—The Val ley City Projeet. What, tlx-.* lire Doing at Bismarck BISJIARCK, Dcc. 13.—[Special.]—The constitution empowers the legislature to make extensions to suffrage, but pro vides that no law, either extending or restricting suffrage,shall be enforced un til it shall be adopted by a vote of the people. Beard has read the constitu tion and today ixtroduced a bill to give women the right te vote, sit on juries and do anything which the law permits the "trowser half" of creation to do. The last section provides that it shall take effeel from and after its passage and ap proval by the people. One of the most interesting fights of the last legislature occurred en the equal rights questiov, and it is quite probable that another equally interesting will occur this year. The woman's suffrage committee will re port the bill favorably, unless some other bill more satisfactory is introduced. Prohibition and woman suffrage are sup posed to go hand in hand—"one and in separable"—and North Dakota, many think, ought to either repeal the one or adopt the other. The adoption of the latter,now that we have the former,would only be following in the order of the fit ness of things. North Dakota needs a popular name, and with both of them she would be easily entitled to be dub bed the "crotchet state." Let it come. Stevens got in a |unch of five bills. They relate to dowry, to garnishment, to admission and practice of attorneys, to bastardy and to the government of in surance companies. All of them are copied from the IUinios statutes. Mr. Milsted introduced his bill to re imburse Messrs. .McGinnis and Hart for glandered horses killed. Mr. Lutz introduced a bill which will meet with the approval and gain him the applause pf every farmer in the state. It is a center shot at the elevator man's favorite method of "doing business." It provides that grain sellers shall have the power of appeal to the board of railroad commissioners, from the grade of grain allowed. The bill ought to bocome a law. The committee on military affairs is made up of patriotic men. At their re quest, Roney today introduced a bill making it compulsory for all public in stitutions to Uy the national flag. Wickham wants to provide for a uni form insurance policy and make all in surance companies use it. He would call his form the North Dakota standard pslicy. Williams wants to fix the penalty for neglect of officers to make report requir ed by law at from 820 to 3500, and re quire the attorney general to keep his weather eye out for such as are amenable to the provisions of the bill. He also in troduced a measure which ought- to en title him to be classed among the poor man's friends. It exempts the wages of mechanics and laborers to the amount of $100. McDonald has a measure authorizing counties to fund outstanding indebted ness, etc. McCullongh got in a provision to allow electors to express their preferences for United States senator. That is, that at the first general election preceding the expiration of the term of any such senator, his successor shall be voted for, but the vote shall be binding only as an expression of the preferences of the peo ple. Considerable business was accomplish ed in committee of tne whole. Stevens' banking law, Frank Thompson's provis ion for the sale and leasing of school lands, Buchanan's bill to punrsh tres passers on school lands. Williams'grist mill bill, the Ft. Lincoln memorial and the senate medical bill, were all recom mended to pass. THE SENATE. Senator Barlow today introduced a bill appropriating $4,000 for a state li brary in 1890, and 81,000 Annually there after for a term of years. Senator Allin introduced a resolution that the legislature adjonrn sine die on February 1. It was tabled. Haggart's bill authorizing railroad cor porations to purchase or own the bonds of other companies or to guarantee the payment of the indebtedness of other companies with which ihey have connec tions, passed the senate. Alliu's bill applying strict rules to the inspection and management of steam heat boilers and licensing engineers, pass ed ttie senate. Senator Barlow is putting through a bill fixing the duties and salary of the supreme court reporter. There will be fees attached to this office and the salary will be a very fair one for the work to be done, at present. sf THE KORMAI* SCHOOL. There are a great many people throughout the state interested in the establishment of a normal school. Those intending to become teachers compose, as in every state, a numerous class. The farmer-boys nnd girls and the common school graduates are nlwyrs looking for some non-sectarian institution where students can prepare for a university course, or for teaching in the*CWic schools. Such iB the nornialr^^qbol 10 oated at Valley City. Representative McDonald of Barnes county, has intro duoed a very sensible bill to provide for the erection of the buildings at present neoessary to get this important institu tion started. He proposes to raise $40,. 000 for this purpose, by using as security the lands set apart for'the school to ne gotiatiate 4% per cent bonds, payable twenty years after date. There are 50,000 acres granted by the state for the support of this school und, as the money would in no way be drawn from the treasury and will beyond question be refunded by the proceeds of the Bales of the land, the bill is meeting with favor. Mr. McDonald will get the bill through the house in all likelihood, as he is a persistent worker, and has made lots of friends, both for himself and Barnes county. There is a friendly feeling all around for the insti tution and for the county. The repre rentatives will do all that can be done for the school. INCIDENTALLY. There are two prohibition bills now in the senate, both in the hands of the tem. pernuce committee. It is possible that but one will be reported back for action, as both are nearly identical. This may be done tomorrow. Something of a con test is expected. Quite a number of senators are in favor of making the date of going into effect. January 1, la89. It is commonly remarked in this connection that any kind.of a bill can be passed this session. The following is section 0 of the house bill, which defines the liquid prohibited. It was not accurately print ed in The Alert a few days ago. Alcoholic liquors are not included in the section, it seems, and some of the expert imbibers claim that a man can get glorious on an alcoholic stimulus not specified on the list. But this is the section, and- it is probably suificpat for all purposes: All spirituous, malt, vinous, fermented or other intoxicating liquors or mixtures thereof by whatever name called that will produce intoxication, shall be con sidered and held to be intoxicating liquors within the meaning of this act. Speaker Wellman is getting better ac quainted with his duties each day and his confidence before the members, from his elevated station, is not deserting him. It is a difficult position for any one to fill, who is unfamiliar with tacks and doubles of parliamentary warfare. Mr. Wellman gives every one a "fair shake" and before the session is over, will be expediting business with genuine Yankee promptness.
