ANOTHER CLOSE CONTEST.
The Struggle Over the Prohibi tory Penalty Clause Re newed. Matters Generally Becoming Lively as I he. Session Closes. '•lie Bill Taxing Franchise of Railroads Lost in the Senate. Bihmabck, March 3. Special.—The eliiof event in the liouso today was tho fight on the repeal of the confisca tion and imprisonment clauses in the prohibitory law. The bill came up at 3 •'clock. A long amendment was read which the opponeutsof the above clauses staled fully eovered the case, and left ample protection to enforce the law by fines. It is plain that a strong- senti ment exists in favor of doing away with the severe penalties above referied to. Numerous petitions from tho temperance societies were read against any repeal or amendment to the law, and several favor ing the repeal. A number of good speeches were made Mr. Lutz making a nfrong speech that attracted a great deal •f attention. The tight was a close one, the vote standing a number of times on important motions 30 to and 31. It requires 32 votes to carry, and tonight the 32nd man cannot be found, although there are several individual hard drinkers •ud general rounders voting with the pro hibitionists against their own convictions. This singular spectacle is commented on all,and is spoken of asasharp commen tary on the sincerity of the leaders. The bill evidently should have been duenssed, at least this phase of it, long since, and the points brought out before, that were today. Few people realize the severity «(this measure. Its punishment for «omething that has been a common and licensed occupation with thousands of 'law abiding, taxpaying people of the state, is nothing less than is awarded criminals, and the most depraved oat laws of society. The temperance people in order to keep this despotic law on the atatute book are exercising every device known to legislative proceedure, and while piofessing a desire to be fair, are .plainly anxious to take and make any kind of advantage. In •rder that members might have an opportunity to read the amendments •ffered today, they were ordered printed, and will be again before the house for con sideration. as well as\he whole bill, to morrow at 4 o'clock. It is expected that a final result will then be obtained. If the bill should pass the house with the penalties stricken out, it is believed it •ill find easier sailing in the senate. ROUTINE. In the house the bill passed giving the asylum vater supply $7,500 additional appropriation. The courily depository bill was indefi nitely posipoiifd. The bill against •ounterfeiting labels and the bill provid ing for fees of clerk of court, a substi tute for 13!), also passed. The Firemen's tournament bill which was lost, was re eonsideied today. It appropriates $3,000 for this purpose. The famous rev enue bill, No. 225, was lost by a vote of 38 to 24. Oliver introduced a Blaine resolution endorsing reciprocity, &c. All •f the republicans but six. voted for it. Three independents voted no. The so mile in one of its freakish moods passed a woman's suffrage bill Monday. Tlie vote stood 15 to 16. It is not ex pected that the house will pass it, but a aninber of members declare they will not take tho responsibility of killing it, and will let. the senate take its medicine. The ways of the senate are past fiuding •Vit. There is strong talk of reconsidering it. Senator Fuller voted with the ma jonty. Gov. Pierce once vetoed a bill of the ,«ine Kind parsed for 6ome equally strange re.ison by members strongly op posed to any such measure individually. Tue bill taxing franchise, right of way, rolling stock, etc., of railroads was sub ject of a protracted debate in the senate again today. The attorney general ren dered his opinion that'.he gross earnings law was constitutional. Mr ink offered an amendment excepting roads that, paid taxes under the gross earnings system. Mr. Johnson of Traill, said that, one of the greatest roads of the state refused to Iaw iay the taxes under the gross earnings He did not want to teethe taxes go ^DDp tid in the future. Mr. Cashel understood that the Nor thern Pacific had not paid its taxes for 1889 because some of the counties had instituted suits against the company, and it did not feel like paying its taxes twice. H* opposed the repeal of the gross earnings law, and favored the Ink amendment. Mr. Worst, thought it was absurd to talk of taxing a franchise—a privilege or liberty. The Ink amendment was adopted, and then the entire bill lost by a vote of 16 to 15. The apportionment bill which was in tended to benefit the Red river valley and settle the long and short term mat ter besides, was lost as i« failed to get a consideration today, and this was the last dAy iu which the bill could be concurred in. Most of the members were the house listening to the debate on the pro hibition bill. A motion was sprung to raise the pay of the firemen of the capitoi building. This was a signal for a half dozen mo tions to increase the pay of employes, in cluding messenger, postmaster and door keeper. The firemen had a dollar a day added to their pay. A motion to add 50 cents a day to the messenger's pay. for bis fares was carried by a vote of 10 to 8. I'ARAGBAPIHO POIN S. It costs $7,000 a year for lighting and general expenses of the capitoi building. The drawing for senatorial terms oc curs Thursday. No method has yet been agreed upon. J. A. Field of Bismarck, tho well known state exhibitor and victor in a dozen exhibits, is a indidate for oue of the oommisBionerslups of the World's fair. Ah usual the most important legisla tion ia being left to tho last moment. In the rush thero will bo somethings done or omitted that will bo regretted. If the farmers could only boon hand then and calmy see their boys perform—it might make a good deal of difference in the way the votes wero cast. A very pleasant incident occurred to day. Chief Engrossing Clerk Kelley of tho house, was presented by tho other members of the force a line gold watch as a token of esteem. Assistant Clerk White was also remembered by a watch chain and society locket of gold. Both gentlemen were completely surprised by tho gifts. Governor Burke's reception was very largely attended. The executive is pop ular in asocial way and a great many people braved the discomforts chest of what was known in advance, as a crush, to pay their complimeutB to the governor and wife. Elbgant refreshments were served and during the evening the Ruport or- ra of Fargo, rendered its choicest strains. There was some dancing, but the crowded condition of the Wallace residence, where the affair was given, did not permit of this generally. A great many handsome costumes were noted among the ladies, and numerous dress suits on gentlemen. Frank Irons, the special agent of the elevator companies, has been working in tbe interest of the elevators nearly all the session. He has been before the committees and presented bis side care fully and fully. His popularity is at tested by being admitted to the floor of the senate. The house has paseed a bill which is claimed to be fair, but which Mr. Irons thinks will work a gteU in jus'ico to the elevators in requiring them to pay any license whatever in lieu of taxation, and in regulating storage rates. He declares the companies will decline to do business under tbe law, and will only keep open as private warehouses. He says public elevators lose money anf private ones make a little—or did last year. The board of railroad and ware house commissioners are anxious that tbe legislature pass a law that will give them power to serve tbe people in this important matter, as the board is de termined to do what is fair, liberal and just with all inte.*est6. New Laws Passed and in Force. Among the new laws now in force is one requiring owners to brand stosk on their own premises, in the presence of two or more responsible citizens, and that it is unlawful to brand any stock run ning at large between the 1st of Novem ber and the 1st of May following, except as above. Penalty is fine and imprison ment. Land bid in by the county on tax sale tnay be disposed of by the commissioners at any regular meeting. Any person may make application stating the price he or she is willing to pay, which can not be legs than the bid and costs. The county auditor shall present such application to the hoard of county commissioners at their next regular meeting and any such bid may be accepted or re jected by said board, as in their judg ment may be proper, or said board may demand the prices for which tbe real estate was bid in, with 12 per cent inter est, per annum, or said board may com promise upon a price, but under no cir cumstance shall any real estate be dis posed of for less than the price said real estate was bid in at the time of sale, cost of sale included. The purchaser then gets a quit claim deed-for all right and title of the county in the property. Auditor's fee, 25 cents for each deed. Every grand army post in the state, upon requisition on tho governor, can procure twenty-five stands of arms, sub ject to call of the executive foi their re turn .u good order. Kainy Day Verse, A long drouth has prevailed in New Mexico which has been recently broken by rains, and a newspaper of that region celebrates the event in the following Hood of song: "A short time since tbe cow was sad she scarce could raise hee head begad. Her hoofs were sore, her tail was limp her mane and bangs bad lost their crimp, and miles she trudged from grass to drink, with scarcely strength enough to wink. The owner too, looked blue and glum, and cussed the cattle business some. But since the rains the grass is tall -the cow can raise her head and bawl her hide is slick, no bones pro trude, she prances like a Tucson dude. Her tail erect, her ejes are bright, she snorts and dares the crowd to fight. Her owner, too, digs up the chink, and asks the boys to take a drink. God bless the rain, the gentle rain it makes a man feel young again. He feels like tossing up his hat, and howling like a democrat." SOME GOOD MEN NAMED.

This is a banking act, giving the right to do busi ness without incorporating, but requir ing a capital of not less than §5,000. Banks are subject to examination and taxation on capital stock. It is doubtful if it passes the senate. This is the bill advocated as second choice by the pri vate banks. The senate committee has recommend ed that the substitute for bouse bill 65, which has passed the bouse, do pass Tomorrow at 3 o'clock the prohibition bill comes up in the house, and a strong attempt will be made to repeal or amend the barbarous penalty clause and confis. cation of property clause.

It was the same bill Attorney General Spencer rendered his opinion on, to theeffectthat the legislature has no right to tax such property. The bill is set for final action at 3 o'clock tomorrow. House bill 159, to amend section 30, chapter 132, of the laws of 1890, concern|security ing assessment and collection of taxes, passed also house bill 140, providing for acquisition of land for township ceme teries also bouse bill 181, providing for registration of births, marrriages and deaths. A bill to give the lieutenant governor 810 per day salary while the legislature is in session, passed, as bills repealing the Lutz license (elevator) law (202), requiring one sixth toll from grist mills for distribution and publication of tbe revenue law, and Barrett's irrigation and forestry bill. Representative Kearney's cheese bill passed, 45 to 6. House bill 204, author izing counties to raise and expend a fund for immigration purposes, with Lutz amendment on petition of one-third le gal voters, passed. The attorney general gave an opinion that the bill codifying school laws was unconstitutional, as there was nu re than one subject in the title. Oliver's bill for three cents per mile maximum for carrying passengers, was lost, 29 to 22, and after changes 32 to 20. The $5,0u0 appro] nation bill for beet sugar experiment, was lost. There were one-half dozen petitions received in the house against cbauging the prohibition law. Action was also taken on the following measures: An ap propriation of $8,500 for compiling laws, passed farmers institute appropriation indefinitely postponed substitute for house bill 132, regulating auditors and registers salaries, passed senate bill 178 for printing and distribution of ballots at public expense, read twice. Opinion is that bill will pass. Lutz' bill appro priating $7,500 for asylum water supply was read twice. Was endorsed by a mes-, sage from the governor. PARAGRAPH IO POINTS. Mrs. Senator McCormack has been called to Denver to *ee an only brother, not expected to live. Tbe sheep legislation of the present assembly is thought to be excellent, and will have a good effect in building up the industry. Ia the evening session of the house 56 senate bills received their first and sec ond reading. Major Hamilton's voice struck a 2-40 gait and kept it up until tbe necessary routine had been accom plisbed. John E. Paulson of Hillsboro, who was appointed on the asylum board, in place of Rev. Lonne, resigned, is a rner chant of that city, and a iirstclass bum ness man. Ho will make an excelled member. Mr. Lonne's other duties madt it inconvenient for him to accept the po sition. "Bob" Wallace is indebted largely to the untiring efforts of his old frends. Col. Dodge and Senator Fuller, for hin appointment as publio examine!. Be sides he had a great many of th»l't st en dorsements in the state. E^enhodj seemed to be pulling for "Bob" and hop ing he would get it. Representative Kearney never lets an opportunity escape to impress on the house the necessity of economy. Mr. Kearney is one of tho successful farmers himself, and knows from exnenenco that tho settlers are in no condition to sport expensive circus-frills in legislation. Mr. Kearney's course will meet with the ap proval of his constituents. Jud LaMc.ure takes care of tho news paper men in his district like a prince. Not long since one of the boys was made clerk of the supremo court, and now an other goes in as oil inspector. The in iluenco of the gentleman from Pembina is directed to protecting home industries, and ho flourisbeth himself, like he ought to, in consequence. Outside of his own province Jud laughs the fraternity to scorn,—if ho wants to. Messrs. .Mmen, Svennungsen, Richie and other members who visited the asylum Sunday, are unanimous in their expressions of satisfaction over the ap pearance of the institution. Lt. Gov. Allin was also among the visitors. No one who has not made a trip through the wards, seen tho patients and the labor ious duties connected with tho care of the insane, can realize the responsibil ities involved, or know the necessity of ample provision for this greatest neces sary charity in the state. The North Da kota asylum is but to be seen and in spected to have its work appreciated. After hard work oo tbe part of Senator Fuller and Representatives Lutz and Kearney, the asylum bill hat, become a law, the governor returning it today with his signature. The amount allowed for the two years is §117.150 being some 32,1)00 more than has been stated, owing to an error in footing tho items. An effort will be made to get an increase in the salaries of the superintendent and assistant, also for come provision to repair, or secure a better How of water from tbe artesi»n well. The story was circulated today that the well bad been stopped on pur pose in order to get a further appropria tion. It was at first believed to be a joke but the tale seems to have found a num ber of credulons believers. Register of Deeds Ashley and C. T. Hills are consulting with the solons in reference to a proposed law that will operate, it is said, against mutual bail insurance companies. The Alliance hail institution is regarded as a good thing for the farmer, who is not able to pay out the price of old line insurance. The is as good as can be bad in many cases. The losses of the past year have been the severest for three, and although many of the policy holders lost all their crops and conld not pay the premium notes, yet the company paid a dividend of 57 cents on the dollar, and are taking new notes and where possible additional security, so that if there is a good crop in 1891 by next winter the unpaid losses are, it is believed, bound to be adjusted in the fall. The Alliance is particularly interested in seeing that no hostile legislation is passed that will retard the success of th^ir authorized hail pro tection association. North Dakota News Notes. Hereafter school lands will not be sold in North Dakota for less than S10 per acre. Peter Cadotte of Dunseith, shot mammoth lynx last Wednesday. It measured o}4 feet long by 1 foot 3 inches broad. Tbe legislature has passed the"lull to enlarge the boundaiies of the various counties in the western part of the state so as to include the territory now known as unorganized counties. One hundred and fifty thousand sheep were imported into this state last year. It may be taken as a settled fact that the farmers of North Dakota have gone into tho sheep raising business. Forty-two printing offices made re ports to tho commissioner of agriculture and labor. These offices paid for labor during the last, year the sum of $146,228. nearly as much as all the other manu facturing industries combined. Wm. McLaren of Bachelor's Grove gathered a full crop of apples last fall from trees set out by him five years ago The trees were planted in a sheltered place, but received no more than ordi nary care necessary to raise .nv trees. The apples are said to be of very fine quality. It appears under the new law that each school district must publish each year a tin incial statement in somecomity newspaper.

Dean I/Hiver Corrects Certain Statements Regarding Jn» migrai.on. The New Public Kxaininer—The N. P. Railway Hospital Service. An Analysis of Sujjar lieets. Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 24,1891. Editor Alert:—It may be of interest to you :uid the readers of your paper, to have the enclosed analysis from the de partment of agriculture at Washington of samples of sugar beets of seven tlu ferent counties iu North Dakota: Couiitv ci?

The seed can be had from Washington if ordered in time. I have also looked into the Has ii^: business and find that 14,000,000 bnsbels of fiax seed aie used yearly in the linseed oil works in this country. If less han 14,000,000 bushels are raised in this country the difference in the amount has to be imported. I also find all the fiax straw is hauled by the farmer from 5 to 15 miles to fiax tow mills and sold for from £5 to $7.50 per ton. instead of burn ing it as we do in Dakota. I have been at a tow mill and tbe day I was there one carload of tow was shipped over the Northern Pacific to California and one carload to Boston. A very small capital would build a tow mill. By working fiax straw into fiber, 60 to 70 lbs of fiber ctn be produced from an acre,worth from 10 to 11 cents per pound, besides the seed and tow, but tbe straw or fiax has to be pulled by hand, and binding, sheltering and threshing done by hand, which requires labor which can be done largely by children and during tbe winter when there is not much else to do. I am looking into the potato starch factory business, and have no doubt in a a few years we will have a beet sugar fac tory, oil wrks, potato starch factory, and tlax straw tow mills in North Da kota, and Jamestown is a central location for them.

Truth, With Some Comments. Dcnseith. N. I Feb. 25. Editor Jamestown Alert.—In your issue of Thursday, Feb. 19ih, a statement is made thus: '-Efforts aro being made to induce a large colony of Swiss emigrants to settle in the Turtle mountain country. It is figured by the Rolla Star that the whole population of an eastern frontier department in Franco could find homes in the vicinity of Turtle mountain, a section of this state comprising a por tion of but two counties."—Permit me to tell you, sir. that this is an old gag, harm lessly repeated by some papers in the state of course, and which found birth in the Rolla Star, Ahose editor received it trom a superannuated-tower-of-Babel ulunderer, an old neighboring uruumi. r.

Dean L'hivek,C. 1'. of Dunseith. wJ THE NEW PUBLIC EXAMINER General Opinion that Gov. llurke has Made a Good Selection. In appointing R.E. Wallace, of James town, as public examiner, Governor Burke has made one of the best appoint ments of his administration. There are few party men as consistent sis Mr. Wallace. lie is one of the straight, active republicans who never believes in bolting or deserting the standard. He has been for years one of the states' most loyal citizens, and progressive men. His abilities are conceded, and his integrity unquestioned. He will fill the office, which is one of the most important and responsible in the state, with credit to himself and the party. Besides being a fitting recognition of a deserving gentle inau, Mr. Wallace, in somo degree at least, has had justice done him. He was appointed to the same ollice two years age, as a representative republican, and for no reason except to gratify the request of a political favorite, tho appointment was revoked by his high republican ex cellency, the present executive of South Dakota, who seems to have led the party to an ignominous defeat in that state by the same rankly partisan and selfish methods that he was fortunately per mitted to display in this state, but a short time. Mr. Wallace has hosts of friends all over both states who will congratulate him on his appointment, and no where are they as numerous or hearty as in Jamestown, and Stutsman county. The salary of the office is 82,000 per annum, besides a sum sufficient for the necessary traveling expeuses. THEN. P. HOSPITAL SEKVIuE. Figures Showing the Good Work Accomplished at These Excellent Institutions. Few people have any idea of the amount of money expended and work done in the Northern Pacific hospital service. The association is one of the most extensive and beneficial the northwest, and is characteristic of the first class methods of railroading now in force on this great system. A statement of the receipts and disbursements for a single mont^ will give an idea of the im portance of the association. The cash receipts from the small monthly assess ments of employees, and from other sources, for November last, amounted to $8,597.74, the disbursements on both eastern and western hospital divisions being 87,420.21. A synopsis of the med ical work done shows 316 surgical cases, and 978 cases of sickness treated at the two hospitals, Brainerd and Missoula, for tbe month, or a total of 1,294 cases. The expenditures for five months of the cur rent fiscal year are reported as divided as follows: At Brainerd hospital 88, 493.50, Missoula 87,406.67 for medical and surgical services along the line 312. 101.20 burial $1,821.65 general expenses 31,451.90 total 833,07817. The Northern Pacific boys are natural ly proud of their association, and feel at all times assured of kind treatment and the best professional skill, in case of sickness or accident. Paying Railroad Taxes. Tax Commissioner Swartz of the Northern Pacific paid into the county treasury Friday §6.763—the share of this county in the railroad company's person al property tax. The assessment for this was made by tho state board of equaliza tion last year. The land tax for 1890 will be paid in June next, says Mr. Swartz. I his tax is baseu on the assessment made by the assessors and county commission ers last year. The tax of 1889 is yet in litigation, the company claiming that the land tax assessed iu many counties that year is illegal under the constitution and gross earnings law. This will doubtless be adjusted soon, and both counties and company know exactly what to expect. The com pany will pay about §60,000 personal property tax for 1S90, and the land tax will be fully as much niDre. Stutsman county's share of both outjht to be over 610.000. The work of paying the person al taxes in this state will be completed his week. Cnder this system the taxes are paid direct to the counties and it is said the plan is better for many reasons, and that the counties get a greater amount than under the old method of paying into the state, and then waiting for a disburse ment. The Timber Culture Kepeal. The long promised action of congress on the bill to repeal the timber culture law is apparently at hand. Both houses have practically reached an agreement on an entirely new bill, which will be brought forward at the first opportunity. The bill agreed upon will change the general system of the government. The bill first repeals the timber culture act. but with reservation in favor of bona fide claims heretofore initiated. In com puting the period of cultivation in claims already accruing, it is provided that time 6hall run from the date of entry if the necessary acres of cultivation is perform ed within the proper time. Pre-emption of land and the planting of trees are to be construed as acts of cultivation Persons who have complied with the pro visions of the timber culture act for four years must prove up their claims by the payment of 81.25 an acre. It is more than likely that the bill will become a law before the end of the present ses sion.
