THE supremo court of tho United States holds that tho people of a state by a majority vote can destroy the value of a citizen's property and not be com pelled to indemnify the owner, under the sweeping principle of "police regula tions.'" The people of North Dakota have destroyed a large amount of prop erty and will not pay the owners any thing for it. By the exercise of this al leged governing principle, the property of brewers and others IU the states of Kansas, Iowa, South Dakota aud North Dakota has beeu destroyed without re muneration. This loss has practically occurred at once, or upon the announce ment of the result of the vote. No length of time granted to dispose of the possessions eo rendered valueless, can be of any avail to the owner, so long as the law is in force that wrecked his property. On the same ground, a vote by the ma jority of the people of the state, repeal ing the law that made her citizen's pro perty worthless, and thereby partially re imbursing him for his loss, ought to go into effect at once, both as to the law, and in justice to the man who had suf fered from its prior passage, both acts being cieated by the same authority. Restitution, if made at all, ought by every right of citizenship, to be made immediately, as the loss had been im mediate. There is no sense or justice in delaying the operation of benefits of a decision of the people of a state for two years, because a document called a con stitution, which a vast majority of voters never read, or knew the provisions of, voted blindly to adopt as a rule of state government. The emer gency reason should rule equally in both cases. TIIE statement telegraphed from Bis marck that the passage of the Walsh revenue bill "will necessitate the appoint ment of county auditors in every county in the state," should have been somewhat qualified. In its sweep ing telegraphic form the state ment seems to carry with it tho intima tion that new auditors will hare to be appointed and is calculated to carry con sternation into the racks of the auditors of the state. An examination of the revenue bill shows that now duties are imposed upon county auditors in connection with the assessment. The fact that the bill be came operative, through an emergency clause, immediately upon its approval by the governor, and the further fact that the performance of certain duties im posed devolves upon the county auditor, necessitates the immediate appointment of such officials in every county which at present has no such official, but does not, as might have been presumed, call for the re moval of present auditors and the ap pointment of now ones. In many of the counties oE the state there is no auditor, the register of deeds performing the duties of both offices. The author of the bill ia question was careful to make it comply with the pro visions of the constitution, which requires that certain county officers, among whom 18 a county auditor, shall be elected in every county at the general election this fall. It will thus be seen that the bill simply provides for the carrying out of the spirit of the constitution, in that it provides for the immediate appointment of auditors in certain counties not now having them, where the letterof the con stitution necessitated the election of such officials a few months later. THK papers now patting Governor Miller on the hack for vetoing tho two year extension of redeaiption law, are published '2"0 miles from the state of North Dakota, where the law was to be in fore They are the Pioneer Press, the Minneapolis Journ-d, the Minneapo lis Tribune and others. Duluth papers also chip in and taffy the governor. When did tlm newspapers of any of those Minnesota cities ever advocate a real advantage to the farmers of this state? They are the paid orgnns of the elevator, mill and grain syndicates, the plausible mouth-pieces of the lumber combines, the coal barons, toe advocates of every scheme to build up and enrich a few monopolies in those wealthy cities, at the expense of the wheat growing farmer of the land of No. 1 hard. It can be safely concluded that whenever those newspapers are found extolling to the skies the action of some North Dakota man, the farmer in this state is dead snre to get the worst of it, in one way or another. A KKCiiXT mass meeting was held in Topeka, Kansas, attended by leading men of all parties. The object of the meeting was to discuss the re-submis sion of the prohibition law of that state. Prominent men delivered addresses de claring that prohibition bad been a com plete failure, and statistics were submit ted which showed that the population of the state had decreased in the last two years, whioh fact was asserted, must be ascribed to prohibition. It waH stated that the people wer« tired of the prohibi tion farce, which had depleted the treas uries of the cities and towns and caused business stagnation. GOVKKNOR MILLF.U lias done an injury to every farmer in North Dakota who has a mortgage on his land. That is, every farmer in the state who from any cause of drouth or unfors»oti disaster, is not able to lift the debt from his farm during the next three years, can lay it to the governor's veto of the bill which gave two years to redeem, instead of one, where property is foreclosed. The gov ernor claims that tho bill is not exactly in accord with the constitution and hence kills it quick, in the interest of the money lender. Tho bill was discussed and passed by both houses,and good law yers never raised the constitutional ob jection, that the governor looked for and found. The only objection of any con sequence was that it would tend to drive money out of the state, owing to the longer time for redemption. The gover nor claims to be the champion of the farmers' interest aud the friend of the poor settlers of the state. He has vetoed other bills that wero passed directly in their interest, but this last veto seems to show that he is tho farmers' friend, in word, not deed. The settlers on the prairies who have fought frost, drouth, and elevator combines, and are trying to get a solid footing, to become prosperous citizens of this new state, have a good right to think that Governor Miller ought to have strained a point, if neces sary, and signed a bill which would give every farmer a right to two years posses sion of his land, instead of one, if his mortgage should from any cause be foreclosed. SOME of the mining sharks over in Butte played a mighty mean trick on Miss Juch, the famous opera singer, one niglit last week. Between acts they slipped behind the scenes and presented her with a block of mining Btock, mak ing a great flourish of trumpets about it. A local paper mentioning the affair, Bays of the mine: "The Hiawatha pros pects are reported most encouraging and its product, like Miss Juch's voice, is of high grade." Our Montana mining men are sages in the business of development and pro duction and many a tenderfoot, profes sional or celebrity has been game for the boys. In this Laughing Water-stocked company the owners are taking advant age of about the only way to get even with a high priced opera warbler, who will be called upon for assessments later. IT looks now as if Lieut. Steele of the Eighth cavalry, would be cleared in the court martial trial now in progress Chicago. Nothing has ever been pub lished which pointed towaids his guilt The sensation has beeu a sentimentally cheap one, which landed Private Wild, the alleged persecuted soldier, on a dime mu3euin platform, an elevation thought to be about his level. Evidenco at the trial yesterday developed the fact that tho private uldn't get a member of his trooj) to testify to his good character, while the lieutenant offered his entire company as witnesses to prove that he has ever been a conscientious and hu mane officer. Wild, the ten cent "hero" of tho occasion, admitted himself while on the stand, that when he was ordered to do the work vvbich led to the difficulty, he didn't know whether he was instruct ed to some thin^ for the government or for the lieutenant personally. SOUK days since in an interview at Washington. Congressman Hansbrough is reported to have said that i£ case the deaf-mute school bill was passed over the governor's veto, the Ramsey county representatives could wear the laurels, the context intimating very clearly that he was satisfied that Devils Lake wonld not get the institution at this session. The talk conveyed the idea that he was getting ready to pound a political enemy who was down, and that he would relish the performance, too. It is but natural, then, that Senator Swanston and Repre sentative Currier of Ramsey county, were enjoying the situation a little themselves yesterday, when they tele graphed the M. C. from Fargo: "The appropriation for the deaf and dumb school ut Devils Lake passed, uotwith staiul'ng your attitude. We are wearing the laurels by your permission." T[IK NKr.so.v COUNTY OUSKRVKI:. a newspaper friendly to Hon. M. N. John son, records the following items of a per sonal nature that may, in nn unostenta tious manner, teem with political mean ing. They are: Hon.M.N. Johnson is making arrange ments for removing to his farm at Peters burg in a few days and resuming his vo cations as a horny-handed tiller of ths soil. "Our delegation" are going to take care of Johnson all right. Pierce has already commenced the good work, in a mild form, by franking him copy of the president's message and five papers of garden seeds. Johnson says he has care fully read the message and will in due time plant the garden seeds and do all in his power to show due appreciation of favors great or small. IT seems an unstatesman-like proceed ing for congressmen to be making super human efforts to get bills passed to irri gate, by artesian wells, western lands for crop purposes, when the valne of every Mill ,r. -i 4 farm product is now so low that it doeB not pay to raise it. Senator Pierce try ing to get a commission to «inquire into the causes of agricultural depression, and Senator Pierce working like a nailor for irrigation to still further increase the farm products of tho west, looks like a whip-saw performance of a very pro nounced kind. Tin: Ni-.w ROOKFOKU TiiAxsoKirT says that tho guarantee fund of Governor Miller's seed wheat syndicate will prevent tho cost of seed wheat going against land or personal property as a tax, in case of loss of crops. ',"'m is not true. Every farmer who si ,- applications drawn up from the se^il wb -it hen law, con sents to the special taxes therein pre scribed, which tax includes both kinds of property. The crop also can not bo mortgaged o£ handled by third parties or sold by the farmer until tho debt for the seed is paid. Tho seed is to bo charged for at SI. 00 and notes and liens exeouted at that rate. What great benefit there is in the much-advertised scheme for the farmers is not easily seen. Shortly after the defeat of tho lottery bill, the follow ing specimen telegram^vas sent to E. E. Henderson of Eddy county, by the gov ernor: Arrangements have been completed by which 300,000 bushels of seed wheat, or its equivalent in feed and other grains, will be furnished the destitute fanners of North Dakota." O From the above, what farmer would suppose he would have to pay 01. 00 for wheat worth G5 cents? The Transcript jumps wildly at a conclusion when it says: The above telegraphic announcement will bring the joyous sigh of relief to many honest farmers in this and other counties, who did not know how or by what means they were to obtain feed and seed. In the light of the above facts, the ar rangements of the governor and his ele vator friends to furnish seed wheat and feed to the destitute farmers of North Dakota, are not such "tidings of great joy" after all. Ix the death of Gen. Crook, the United States array loses its best Indian killer. The general is credited with the state ment that he could have ended the bloody massacres of white settlers in the southwest years ago, had it not been for the Indian supply contractors and their tools, tho sentimental cranks. He says that his movements during a red-hot campaign, when the scent was fresh and warm, were closely watched and reported to headquarters in Boston. When ever lie succeeded in driving Geronimo or any of his associate murderers to cover, whore the work of extermination could have been executed with artistic military skill and completeness, the£e contractors with well developed pulls on the war de partment at Washington, would call him off for tho express purpose of allowing his big game to escape. THK governor vetoed the stay law for various reasons of his own. The chief objection urged against it was by the legislature itsolf and by the money men, and their reason was worthy of consider ation that cppit il would be shy of real estate securities in the state. The gov ernor seemed to hunt for other pegs to hang his veto on. The farmer who might have had two years to redeem his fore closed property, instead of one, had the veto not stepped in, has known for some time that little or no money has been loaned on North Dakota farms the past six months. Destitution, drouth, frost prohibition and other matters are respon sible for this, not the farmer. fiovj-.R: ou TOOI.K of Montana, is urg ing on the people of that state the de sirability of observing Arbor day, April 15th. Arbor day iu North Dakota will be a state holiday and an occasion of grateful memory, if congress repeals the timber culture act. Then the anniver sary of the occasion will bo turned into planting small clusters of young trees that are intended to grow, not five acres of seeds that sprout and wither up, but comply with the law, yet keep the settler from getting a title to his land. IT seems to be settled that North Da kota is to have a §.'50,000 penitentiary located at some point in the Red river valley. This is a government institu tion and follows, with suggestive prompt ness, the admission of the state into the Union. The presence or the lottery in the new state evidently had its influence as well with the immifculate and virtuous United States senators, who have suddenly passed an appropriation for the new "pen." HON. J. P. SELBY of Hillsboro, has been appointed United States district attorney. His is a fine appointment, one of the best the president has made in this state. He is an attorney of unusual learning combined with soond natural judgment. He has won the esteem of the citizens of Traill county, and as marks of such was sent to represent them in the constitutional convention, and the last lecrislature. In both bodies he was recognized as one of tbe leaders. IF there are any differences to adjust among the republicans of North Dakota, such an old-time republican as* Jud La Moure leads off in declaring that they must be settled inside of the party liner. Tbe p~rty is big enough to do it that way, and that is the only w&y it should be done. Straight republicans will win on the straight ticket, he thinks, easy TVfoiU/i.yj.

REfoim from numerous points in the state show that the elevator companies are running out wheat as fast as possible. They eun't even wait to sell it to needy farmers at 81. 00 per bushel, as recom mended by the Minneapolis guarantee syndicate. The reason for this undue basic in rushing the contents of their elevators into Miunesota, is that April 1st is approaching as well as the county tax assessor. MINNESOTA congressmen are opposing the repeal of the timber culture law. Minnesota hns plenty of trees already, and no trouble in making othors gro^. North Dakota has no trees, and the timber culture act now in force will never secure them. Tho pine barren statesmen from Minnesota are acting very queerly in this matter. THE government has decided to feed 1000 intruding breeds from Manitoba rather than let a few of the wards of the this nation suffer. The worthless Injun is fed and cared for. Yet the unfor unate American farmer living in the same locality is neglected, and left to take care of himself unaided in his bat tle with the elements. THEME are certain daily newspapers in the 3tate not content with suppressing matters of public importance, but are resorting to cold lying and intentional mis-statements of facts, to prop up a desperate case. Truth is mighty and will prevail, just the same. THE national hoqse of representatives has repealed the timber culture law. Now let the slow, ponderous senators awake to the realization of the fact that the law in its present condition will never accomplish the object of its enactment— and pass the bill too. A FABGO editor who was about to be sued for wages by a printer, had the man arrested for assault and battery, charg ing that such a bold attempt to extort money from a newspaper was of a crim inal nature and should be punished ac cordingly. ___________ THE Steele Ozone has grown tired of discussing dead issues, like lottery offers of 8150,000 a year to the state and free seed to farmers. It says "what we want is a little hay—baled or unbaled—to eat, and plenty of high moral laws." THE North Dakota Sittings has this information: Gov. Miller has secured 300,000 bushels of seed wheat for the farmers. The Sittings will give the details of the plan next week. A SOUTH DAKOTA journal thinks that secret sessions of the farmers alliance meetings will prove the secret of greater success for the organization in the future. ______________ THE surplus piety that accumulated on the Pioneer Press over Sunday was worked off on the reader Monday in the form of anti-lottery bile. CHICAGO could have gotten the worlds fair with the wind that has been worrying the tin roots today. Hoard ol' Kducation. At the regular monthly meeting of the board of education held a day or two since, it was decided,upon thesuggestion of Superintendent Denny, to give a spring vacation next week. School will not be in session again until March 31st. Treasurer Vennum made his report, which showed the receipts to be 811,343 47 disbursements §0,948.01, leaving a balance on hand of $4,394.50. The services of the north side school house janitor were dispensed with and the building committee authorised to se lect another. On motion of Gieseler. the treasurer was instructed to call in S3,000 woith of school warrants. Northern Pacitlc Kxpress Matters. The general offices of the Northern Pa cific Express company will be removed from St. Paul to Chicago. The railroad offices will remain in St. Paul. It is understood that the expiess change is made in order to afford the general superintendent more immediate com munication with the head offices of other express companies located in Chicago. Parties will remember that last sum mer this company was robbed of $18,000, at Brainerd. The theives have been at large until within the past few days, when they were captured in Montana. The boodle was of course not found upon their persons.

This is obtained in Walsh county by utilizing tho steep slopes of a couhe, sliding leaping and tumbling down, with little or much success, according to th» skill of the skiiet. The writer adds that on fine days ladies appear on the scene and take part in tho sport themselves, to the intense interest of the spectators, but that this other source of delight must be observed from a different stand point. This last part of the performance was too much for ho correspi indent to bear without emotion, for he closes his description in the following strain: O, careless days, already entering the memories of the past. O. merry, free, joyous little moments of the brightest sands of our time, shall we only see you again in memory's picture? Will pros perity again return, and with it the greed of gain that hardens tho human heart? Will the eyes that sparkled brightly with innocent delight, then darkly gleam with the reflection of a netrilied soul? Or, will the dream of some kind night send again the samo old thrill of gladness to soften our hearts, the same old panorama of fantastical forms, with limbs and gar ments flying in all colors and shapes, the same old myriad voices mingled with the same rippling, merry, musical laughter to leave an indelible white spot on our soul? Nothing- but Ixs*. M. L- McCormack of Grand Forks, in Pioneer Press: Prohibition is a serious thing to a great portion of the state. Take the city of Grand Forks, for in stance. It means a loss of S'22,000 a year in revenue. The expenses of the city government are no less, and as tbe same revenne is needed as in the past years, that loss of 822,000 must be made up by increasing tho rate of direct taxation on the people. We bad an experience with local option several years ago. The re sult was we had fifty-two saloons run ning in the town without license, and not a cent, of revenue was derived from that source. Then we adopted high license. The result was a reduction in the number of saloons to twenty, and we obtained a revenue of $20,000. while thirty-two low dives were wiped out of existence.^ I fear that our experience with local option will be repeated under prohibition. But, supposing the law is enforced, what, benefit will it be to Grand Forks, from a temperance standpoint? The city is on the Minnesota boundary line and just across the bridge over the Red river is East Grand Forks Minnesota, where plenty of liquor can be obtained. The saloons are close to the Minnesota end of the bridge and it is but a very short walk to them from the center of Grand Forks.
