By Jobnson of Traill—Provid ing for the assessment for the purpose of taxation of railroad companies, to the committee on railroads. 169. By Arnold—Providing for the publication of the session lawB in the newspapers, to committee on public printing. The bill providing for an amendment to the constitution increasing the debt limit, was passed also one regulating tbe test of illuminating oils, and the bill shanging the boundaries of certain counties. Senator Cashel reported from tbe com mittee on long and short senatorial terms, lecommending postponement of the re quired drawing until the last Thursday of the session. There is a bill before the legislature looking to a reapportionment of the state, and as that law, if passed, n'ght rearrange some of the districts, the committee thought it might be well to wait for the drawing. The report of the committee as to the date of the draw ing was adopted. The vote in the senate upon the final adoption of the resubmission resolution, was as follows: Ayes—Messrs.

Favorable re ports werelikewise received,from the com mittee on state affairs, upon house bill 172—a seed grain bill—and from the judioiary committee amending the nox ious weed law.

Red Itlvcr Valley Farmres Organise to Protect Their Grain from the ISIevators and Graders, Tbe Minnesota farmers are beginning to look after the elevators of their state with an energy that has not been wit, nessed before, and they seem to think that while the legislature is in session, there can be no better time to do it. Re cently a well attended meeting of Min nesota wheat raisers was held at Crooks ton, in the western nart of the state and in the Red River valley. There were over 100 farmers present The object of the movement was to open up abetter wheat market for the farmers of that part of the state. It was clearly demonstrated that the wheat monopolist have been able this fall to arbitrarily lower the price of grain, and have done so as far as they could by devices possible under the present elevator system. The meeting above referred to was helu under the aus pices of the Northwestern Farmers' Pro tective association. It is proposed to continue these meetiugs from time to tune, in order to give farmers a chance to discuss the situation and to exchange information and ideas. &c. A committee bad, during a former meeting, been ap pointed to visit Duluth and closely in vestigate the conditions of the market aud the complaints arising from the handling of grain, the method of grad ing, The report of this committee of practical farmers is of special interest to the Dakota farmer, for the injustic and wrongs exposed are equally as op pressive to him as to bis Minnesota brother. The report says: We tind 1st. That the manner in which tae wheat grading is done is partly su perficial and insufficient to tind the real quality of tbe wheat. Over this we be came entirely surprised. The wheat is graded on the looks of it it is not weighed, so in this respect the mode of proceeding is a violation of the law. To a questiou, how the state inspectors could know the weignt of the wheat, we were answered that if a car of wheat is graded iSo. 1 Northern, its weight per bushel would be put at tidy-seven pounds on the state inspector's certili cate, or at a weight under No. 1 hard, even if it weighs up to sixty pounds per bushel. In abort, we found the whole to be a guesswork pure and simple. 2. That the farmers can rent at Du luth elevators of the elevator company, provided they guarautoa that a certain number of bushels come in in the year, and also bind themselves not to work in opposition to the wheat dealers. 4. A part of an elevator could also be rented, if the whole of it was not neces sary, on condition that the elevator crew performed ail the work, and the farmer* only kept an overseer to keep track of the wheat. In this case tbe same ob ligation must be entered into, as above stated, viz, "not work in opposition to the wheat dealers." 5. The elevator expenses would be, provided one million of bushels came in iu a year, about 11/£ cent per bushel. If more wheat comes in then less. Con cerning this last term there shall later on be given particulars, as no definite answer could be obtained at present. 6. A lot whereupon to build an eleva tor from which the wheat could be ship ped, was offered us free of charge by a land firm. 7. We have reason to suppose that, provided that an elevater really be built, that we, besides a lot, also will get some help by way of money. 8. We find that the owners of the elevators in Minnesota and Dakota are working against the interest of the farm ers, in that they try to prevent wheat from being sent in carload lots and there by dimmish their income, are seeking to influence both the inspectors and buyers here on the market to hinder wheat from being shipped in this manner. This is of great disadvantage. The committee urged that as nothing heretofore in this line had been done by the farmers, it was important not to de lav longer in attempting to protect their interests from the grain sharks. The committee recommended that a compe tent man, a member of the Duluth board of trade, be employed by the association for four months in the year, September, October,November and December,to'look after the farmers interests in the matter of grading and care of wheat in yards. That a cent a bushel be deducted from all wheat so taken charge of, for expen ses that a fund be raised by small assessments to build an elevator at Du luth, as renting with the numerous con ditions imposed, would be too hazardous and that members of the association bind themselves to send their wheat to their agents so employed at Duluth. The farmers of Minnesota are waking up to the fact that united action alone can protect their interests in the market ing of wheat and the obove steps are re garded as a commencement of an im portant and successful campaign in the cause of honesty and square dealing in this matter. Melville Mites. (Carrington Independent) The granary in the southeast part of town which was tilled with flax belong ing to the C. & C. Land Co., was burst open on the south end by the weight of the grain last Monday evening. We have not learned the extent of the damage. Jack Warner met with a very painful nccident last week while rounding up his horses. The horse he was riding fell with him and falling on his leg bruised it considerably. Jack will not be him self for some time. J. D. Mulvebill took in the ball at Jamestown Monday night and returned Tuesday morning bringing bis sister, who bad just arrived from Pittsburg, with him. Miss Louisa Boyle was among those Ji who attended the Jamestown ball. Notice. Any one having good milch cows to let for the factory season of *91 will do well to write tbe undersigned. Carrington Chips. (Foster County Independent.) Rev. Davy of Melville, informs us that be expects to remove from that place in tbe spring to a place near Fargo. He thinks that tbe pulpits in Melville and Curringtou will be*tilled by one minister in the future, who will have his residence in Carrington. A long letter was received this week from N. is. Graves. He sayB he is hav ing a great time in Indiana this winter, but is already beginning to look with longing eyes toward North Dakota, and expresses the wish to be where funerals are not so numerous. Rev. Jones jumped from a moving train laBt Monday, aud slipping when he jumped landed on bis head. Fortunately he was not much hurt by tbe fall. The Carrington Dramatic club will re peat "Among the Breakers" in the court house Friday night. They will give the play at New Rockford. And now comes W. Y. Quarton and re ports the arrival of twins—a boy and a girl—at his house. They put in their appearance Tuesday night. To the Tax Payers or Stutsman Co Ferhnps many of you are not aware that the. taxes for 1800 on personal property become delinquent on JVIarch 1,18M1, after which 5 per cent penalty is added. Not only that, but it becomes the duty of the treasurer to collect them by distress before June 1. which in many cases would double the amount, besides being an unpleasant duty. As house hold furniture was assessed last year for the first time, (except in excess of $200), nearly every one has a personal tax. Your prompt attention to this matter is requested. Tbe tax on real estate becomes delinquent on June 1. C. It. FLINT, County Treasurer. Horses lor Sale. From aDd after Feb. 11 I shall keep horses and mares for sale at ray stable in Jamestown.

Will also offer for salt two Clydesdale stallions, one a thoroughbred and one a high grade. Both of these an imals thoroughly acclimated and war ranted in every respect as represented. T. S. WADS^ORTH, Jamestown, N. D. The Historic Hatchet. We take the hatchet for our text, be cause Monday is the anniversary of the birth of George Washington, and the legend of tbe little hatchet is insepera bly connected with the memory of tbe great mar.. And yet these matter of fact people, who go patiently mousing around among old documents and rec ords say the pretty story is not true— and so another cherished belief is shat tered. Still the hatchet remains an em blem for a truthful man, (when it does not suggest tbe bad Indian with his tom ahawk) though a good many of our fel low citizens have evidently "buried the hatchet," as it does not appear as a sign over their doors. Railroad men are sup posed to have no use for the hatchet as a trade-mark—except the agents of "The Burlington," who have no need for any thing but the truth in detailing tbe ad vantages and attractions of tbe 7,000 miles of track of tbe system, the superb equipment, tbe fast time, tbe courteous treatment, the sure connections.
