tf« THE ENFORCEMENT LEAGUE. AiiOrganizatioii Effected AVlicre by it is Hoped Prohibition May be a SnccctM. The Attempt to Past* ail Anti Third Party Resolution, a Flat Failure. It Is Afterwards Adopted by a Meeting of Citizens.—A Merry War. Another Culd Water Convention. As bad been anticipated in many quar ters, the meeting held Friday afternoon for the purpose of organizing a state en forcement league,and incidentally for the purpose of discouraging the third party prohibition movement, was characterized with more force than harmony. Early in the session the leaders struck the rockB of dissension, and the convention, which opened with prayer, closed with a pretty fight. The meeting had been called for 2 o'clock, at the court house, but owing to the protracted session of the third party adherents who convened in another part of the cityright after dinner, it was 3 o'clock before the advocates of enforce ment and non-partisan action commenced their program. At that hour, the assem bly was rapped to order by I. C. Wade, arho read the published call and explain ed at some length the objects for which they had met. Rev. T. H. Sheckler of Bismarck, invoked the divine blessing upon their deliberations. Upon motion of Mr. Pollock, the venerable James S. Campbell of Fargo, was chosen chair man, and W. P. Moffet of the Bismarck Settler, was elected secretary. A tem porary organization having thus been effected, Mr. Pollock at once introduced the resolution which furnished the basis of a lively wrangle later in the day. The resolution briefly recited the opposition of tbose present to the formation of an active prohibition party in North Da kota at this time, and expressed it to be the sense of the meeting that the great est success in temperance and enforce ment work could be best achieved along the lines of non-partisan effort. Ex-Pre siding Elder Plannette of Fargo, moved its adoption, which motion promptly pre vailed without a diyisicn. The unanim ity with which the resolution was adopted foreboded a harmonious meet ing, but to those who bore in mind that the third party delegates had not yet reached the hall it was clear the matter would be heard of again in due time. Having thus early disposed of the question nearest the hearts of the man agers, the matter of organizing a state enforcement league was taken up for consideration. I. C. Wade opened the discussion with a motion that such a league be organized at once, and another motion that all present in favor of carry ing out the prohibitory law be enrolled as duly accredited delegates. Both mo tions carried, and a committee of three on credentials—Messrs. Goodwin, Adams and Pianette—proceeded to take the names of those present who desired to participate in the organization. During the progress of this work, the secretary read a memorial from Park River lodge, I. O. G. T., declaring itself in hearty sympathy witb enforcement, but as rigidly opposed to independent political action. Letters were also read from Governor Burke, Miss Kinnear, Assistant Attorney General Blandish and ex- Senator Barlow, giving expression to similar sentiments. The governor re gietted that his duties at the capital would not permit of his presence on this occasion, but assured the convention of his hearty concurrence with the objects designed to be accomplished. He dwelt upon the loyalty of the present adminis tration to the pledges made in the repub lican platform, and promised a continued effort to make effective every provision of law now upon the statute books of the state. The president of the North Dakota W. 0. T. U., Miss Kinnear, while announcing herself an ardent prohibi tionist, did not believe the time had arrived for separate party action, and hoped the convention would follow the advice of those favoring non-partisan effort. The other letters were of like purport, and all were placed on file. The following committees were then named: On constitution and by-laws—Geo. F. Goodwin, G. H. Honey, 1. M. Adams, O. W. Francis, A. D. Gray. On resolutions—I. O.Wade, G. A. Pol lock, M. N. Johnson, A. Bjornson, T. H. Sheckler. Up to this time everything had slid along as smoothly aB a small boy on a cellar door, but the arrival of some twenty or thirty additional delegates just as the foregoing committees were ap pointed was the signal for a buzz of sup pressed excitement. The newf comers were the out-and-out third party people accompanied by their brilliant and ag gressive national leader, Hon. Samuel Dickie. They had not been long in their seats either before the opportunity to do some accomplished kicking seemed to present itself. It appears that most of them had arrived in time to get enrolled as mem bers of the body, and when they learned the tenor of the resolution which had previously been adopted, the inconsis tency of their position became apparent. They realized that to take part in the meeting under the circumstances was tantamount to stultifying themselves having already participated in the organ ization of a movement which thiB meet ing unreservedly condemned. A. J. Garver of the Leeds News, was the first to take thiB view of the situation, and he asked that hiB name be Btriken from the list. The first brick had been thrown! I. 0. Wade saw trouble ahead, and im mediately tried to pour oil' upon the turbulent waters. He disclaimed any in tention of unfairness, aa charged by the gentleman from Leeds, and said the en rolling of the new arrivals was not thought of in connection with the reso lution which had been adopted, Mr. Wade's remarks were not as productive of harmony, however, as he evidently wished them to be, for Mr. Dickie at once came to Mr. Garver's assistance in» an impassioned ap peal for fair play. Not being a citizen of the state, he said he did not feel like putting himself forward, but this ob stacle in the way of a speech was readily removed by a motion that Mr. Dickie be extended the privileges of the floor. This having been granted, the speech was forthcoming—and it was characterized with all the embellishments of finished oratory. He said the body claimed to be non-partisan, yet the first resolution passed gave the lie direct to such pre tensions. For one, he believed an en forcement league if organized at all should be started upon a broader basis of good fellowship. He wanted acces sions to the cause of law and order from all quarters, from all parties. But this resolution prevented a third party man from uniting in the work without sur rendering his manhood. A running debate followed Mr. Dickie's declaration, which grew acrimonious as it progressed. Rev. E. E. Saunders got hefloor for five minute address in support of Mr. Dickie's position, while Hon. C. A. Pollock took the other liorn of the dilemma. Mr. Pollock was fre quently interrupted by Mr. Dickie, who seemed to be a veritable bundle of inter rogation points. Mr. Pollock submitted very gracefully to the latter's questions, however, and vainly endeavored to pacify his irate cold water brethren. But it was to no purpose, for the storm had broken and disruption appeared more imminent as the battle proceeded. H. H. Mott of Grafton, brought matters to a focus by moving that the objectionable resolution be expunged from the record. Numerous seconds were heard to this proposition and it was thought the same would go through. Before the question could be stuped, however, Congressman Johnson secured recognition to advocate a compromise. It was clear to him, he said, that a wide difference of opinion existed, but he hoped inasmuch as it was a difference as to policy rather than principle, that the same would be amica bly adjusted. Believing thoroughly in free institutions, and in majority rule, he deprecated Mr. Dickie's advice to his followers that they leave the room should the resolution be permitted to stand. Mr. Johnson said his plan in politics had al ways been to submit when whipped, and instead of sulking, to get ready for the nest fight. This palpable hit took well with those familiar with Mr. Johnson's career in this state. It failed to bring about a test of strength merely because, at the conclusion of the congressman's remarks, Mr. Mott withdrew his motion to expunge. This was followed by Mr. Pollock withdrawing the resolution— thus preventing a rupture, even at the sacrifice of his individual convictions. The whole affair culminated in a "compromise," of which the third party ites evidently had the big end. A recess of twenty minutes was then taken. AFTER THE BATTLE. The second session of the con vention was more harmonious. Its pro ceedings were so peaceful, in act. as to grow monotonous in comparison with the performance previous to recess. Business was dispatched at a lively rate, and the labor of perfecting a state organ ization to render the prohibitory law more effective, assumed tangible form before a final adjournment was reached. From the committee on resolutions, Chairman Wade reported the following, which were duly adopted: With pride and gratitude congratulat ing the people of this state on the adop tion of prohibition as the settled policy of our grand young state, aud the great (tneasure of success already attending the efforts of those charged with the faithful execution of our laws, and ap pealing with confidence to the judgment and co-opurution of all our fellow citizens who believd in cultivating a profound respect for the institutions of our country, and obedience of all laws, we adopt the following resolutions: Resolved, That we are heartily in favor of pushing the enforcement of the. pro hibition law until the last saloon and its coadjutor, the blind pig, is driven outside the boarders of the state of North Da kota, and the last violator of the law, if still in the state, is placed behind the bars. Resolved, That we call upon tbe law abiding citizens of the state to join this league and to lend their aid to the officers of the law in enforcing the same. Pending report from the committee on by-laws and constitution, Hon. Sam uel Dickie offered a few suggestions as to the best mode of procedure and gave the body the benefit of his experience in Michigan and other states. Ex-Attorney General Goodwin then reported tbe constitution, which is a ver batim copy of the one now in use in Soutn Dakota. One or two amendments were proposed, and considerable time was consumed in discussing Balaiies of officers, cost of membership, etc. Tbe only change made was in fixing the an nual meeting for June instead of Octo ber. The report of tbe committee, as thus amended, was then adopted, and thirty-six charter members were enrolled, upon the payment of 81 each. Messrs. Saunders, Wright and Wylie were named as a committee to recom mend a list of officers for tbe ensuing year, and their report was adopted as follows: President—I. C. Wade, Jamestown. 1st Vice President—C. A. Pollock, Fargo. 2nd Vice President—A. D. Gray, Bis marck. Secretary—E. E. Saunders, Jamestown Treasurer—C. H. Honey, P«rk River. After listening to a number of short talks from various gentlemen,the enforce ment league adjourned,—notice being first given by Mr. Pollock that another meeting of citizens^ opposed to third party action would be held immediately afterward. THE ANTAOONIZEBS' RESOLVE. Upon the departure of the third party element, at a few minutes of 6o'clook, the remaining delegates immediately reorgan ized with C. A. Pollock in the chair. W. P. Moffet was continued as secretary. Twenty-four gentlemen tarried to carry out the errand which had primarily brought them to Jamestown, and they lost no time in reviving the resolution that had proven a Jonah earlier in the day. Rev. D. C. Plannette read the same, and moved its unanimous adoption. Judge Keim of New Rockford, one of the third party crowd, had not taken his departure, and much to the sur prise of the assemblage at once inaugurated a vicious roast of the document. He seemed bent upon another fight, even though he stood alone and was Bure to lose. It was to warn them, he said, that he remained, and in an eloquent speech he announced that the publication of such a resolution would lose the republican party fifty times the number of votes represented at the prohibition conference. Little at tention was paid to the warning,however as after proper time had been given all to express their views tbe resolution car ried without division. Messrs. Goodwin, Sheckler, Honey, Wright and Plannette endorsed it in short speeches, all of which were well put. The resolution as finally adopted reads as follows: Whereas, The question of the advisa bility of organizing an active prohibition party in the state of North Dakota has been discussed throughout the press of the htato, as well as by tbose present at this meeting, therefore be it Resolved, That we express it as the sense of this meeting of the citizens of North Dakota, that there is no necessity for such' an organization, and that we be lieve tbe greatest success in tpmperance and enforcement work lies along the line of non-partisan effort. Upon the adoption of the foregoing, it was suggested,in order to afford the pub lic a clear conception of who were respon sible for the resolution, that all present and in harmony with the sentiments ex pressed attach their signatures to the same. The following gentlemen were accordingly placed on record: Ghas A Pollock, Plannette, N Stanford, Sheckler, S E Ryan, N Johnson, O W Francis, James S Camp bell, Bankol, Honey, Fair child, A Bjornson,J Wylie,IM Adams. Lonne, S Beer, Cooper, Geo Goodwin, W Moffet, I Wade. At 6:15 o'clock the meeting adjourned sine die. Frlghtftal li«» of Life! Of the many disasters with which mankind bas been visited, one ot the worst is that class of ailments which originating simply with inactivity of the kidneys and bladder, causes such frightful loss of life. Under this appalling category come Bright'® disease, diabetes, travel, ordinary nephitis and catarrh of the bladder. No class of organic maladies, asfmist which medica' skill is pitted, so often allies the expert practitioner and sets bis skill ac naught. Easy Is it, however, to arrest these direful ailments at the start. The diuictic action of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is Just sufficient to set the bladder and kidneys at work, preserve or rescue tneni from iatai inactivity without exciting them. Thei un medicated stimulants of commerce excite without either strengthening or regulating. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters does both. It is unfailing for malaria, dyspepsia, debility, rheumatism, liver complaint and constipation. Eldridge Notes. George Collins returned from San Francisco last Wednesday, and is well satisfied with what be saw. He says that North Dakota is good enough for him. George is now stationed at Onska, as night operator on the Northern Pacific. His brother Will is installed as agent and operator here. After spending twa exceedingly anx ious and sleepless nights watching tho thermometer and making pyrotechnical displays of old manure heaps, straw piles, dried weeds, etc., F. B. Durand is ser iously contemplating the abandonment of bis farm for a period and writing up a book entitled "What I don't know about smudging wheat fields in North Da kota." The fall term of our public school be gins on Monday morning tbe 31st inst., with Miss Hattie Bigelow of Jamestown, teaching. It is difficult to tell at present just what damage was done to crops by Sat urday night's frost. It is safe to say, however, that we are going to have the largest yield we have had for seven years and as the price bids fair to be good, farmers are generally going to be placed in good circumstances. Those who had wheat cut and in the shock two days prior to the frost's advent should so des ignate it in tbe fields by running a fur row about it, and thresh it separately, as it will undoubtedly mean from one to two grades to the farmer. It must be understood that this article has reference to grain that was the least particle green when cut—wheat that wes dead ripe is uninjured. This is a good time to plow firebreaks. The prairies are ready to burn on a mo ment's notice. Rev. Mr. Whitelaw preached in the school house last Sunday. His sermon WBB right in line with the scorching we received the night previous. F. W. Holmes writes from Joliet, Ills., stating that owing to his mother's ser ious illness he will not return to North Dakota, until next summer. The atmosphere is blue with smoke in this vicinity from Saturday night's smudges. We will probably see tbe sun again about Friday. Al. Wedeman has purchased a thresh ing machine. This makes seven in this immediate locality and there is an abun dance of work for all of them. Hon. S. L. Glaspell, George Wylie, and Rev. Mr. Whitelaw, were among the prairie chicken hunters that visited this neighborhood last week. RUPERT. Montpelier. Mr. J. Frost, an old timer, made a short call through this neighborhood last Saturday night. Some of our neigh bors, the writer included, thought it would be a friendly act to give the old chapa warm reception, by building bon fires in and around their respective gar dens and cornfields, and give him a little smoke but old Jack did not take it as warmly as was expected, and simply scorned at the idea and gave a shudder that sent a chill over the whole vicinity, and when the morning dawned traces of his presence were seen on every hand. Most of those who tried the experiment have come to the conclusion that it takes something more than smoke to change the course of nature. One man was heard to say that while he was scorching his whiskers to keep his smudge going, his breath was freezing into icicles as it passed over his shoulder, and concluded to quit. Another said while he was sit ting down to warm his fingers beside his smudge, the weeds behind him froze tight to his coat tail, and he also con cluded to quit. So much for smoke. Harvesting is progressing finely and most of the farmers of this vicinity will be through this week. Some have com menced stacking already. A number of our farmers have had their wheat headed. Mr. F. A. Carley expects to commence threshing his grain next week. Miss Frankie Merril of Jamestown, has been visiting friends here the past week. She returned on Tuesday night's train. Mrs. John Comber is very sick and fears are entertained of her recovery. Mrs. Dr. Wink has been called twice, but gives no encouragement. Miss Emma Crossett has been on the sick list for a few days past, but is better now. Mr. H. A. Shaver has purchased of Mr. John Ford a pair of fine Shropshire bucks, and Mr. Ford has as fine a flock of sheep as there is in this part of the country. Mr. N. C. Shaver reports having heard wolves barking near his home one night this week. Said it sounded as though there were a number of them. A FARMER. Beaver. The frost Saturday night changed the complexion of things considerably, but it is hoped that the bulk of our grain was so mature as to suffer little in its grade still the loss by shelling will prob ably be considerably increased. All we lack now is» a few hours stiff breeze to thresh and seed thousands of acres be fore this crop is harvested. However, farmers are not idly awaiting this issue. Judging our early grain by its straw the crop would be immense, but the prudent man confines his calculations more to the head, which, though of good length and the kernel generally quite plump, will only shell about two-thirds the kernels it was originally set for. Tbe stand of grain is thick and makes the harvesters groan to dispose of it. Headers run rather lighter than last year as the grain can be cut higher, where it is not as tough, but requires an extra headerbox to haul tbe grain as fast as cut. As far as we know about an equal amount of our grain is cut by harvesters as headers. Three new machines of the former and one of the latter have been purchased in this vicinity which shows a growing favor for headers still those who have both find it very handy to fall back on the harvester when circumstances occur which hinder the successful use of the header that have no such effect on the harvester. Stock owners insist that the frost will cause them no loss on that variety of their crop. Miss Louisa Brastrup and school have been recently photographed. Little wonder that members of the B. society frequent the photographer's lately! What picture would be more appreciated than another in a batchelor's den? Whether it is better to allow the purr chases of farm machinery to absorb oil crop, than to welcome the merciful hail storm which will do away witb the need of the former and much hard labor be side, is a conundrum that several of our friends have been making preparation to crack. Plngree. Harvest around here is well advanced. Some late wheat was injnred by the frost, but can't say to what extent until later. Adam Walters will start his new threshing outfit next Tuesday, on his own errain. Prairie chicken hunters are quite numerous, so are chickens. Farmers are endeavoring to get a few before the "Jimtown porks" gather them all up. Mr. Remstead of Fargo, is here in charge of the Northern Pacific elevator. He is also a worthy gentleman, and if the girls delivered the wheat they would eacn get an equal share of their patron age. Mr. Tommy Taylor of Duluth, was here last week on business. The Y. P. S. C. E. is progressing fine ly. We are glad to have such an organi zation among our young people, and hope it will prove a benefit and a success. Rev. VanCamp will preach here next Sunday, at 11 a. m. All are cordially invited to come and hear a good sermon. Mrs. Rose and Mrs. Friese of James town, are visiting Mrs. Nichols. Ypsilanti. Well, the great calamity we have all feared so much has befallen us at last. While it is not so disastrous as it would have been if it had happened a little earlier, the damage is great. Late oats and barley are killed and will never fill. Late wheat will not be marketable, and even the ripest fields will have some green spots, which will furnish green berries enough to knock down the grade a point or two, or condemn it altogether. Now, we suggest that this is getting rather monotonous. Can't the govern ment do something to stop it? We "demand" that the government build a line of smudges on our northern border, of Dakota coal or some other incom bustible material, and protect tbe farmer from like disaster. And now, while we are in the demand ing business, there is another thing we want attended to, and that is the hot winds. We "demand" tnat the govern ment look after the hot winds. Grain Saved by Smudges. Elton Northrap, who is farming tbe Ashley farm some five miles north, states that he worked the smudge on his wheat last Saturday night and it was a com plete success. He even saved his millet. He had a lot of straw piles laid all along the north side of his wheat and also along the west side. When the wind was in the north be burned the straw on the north side, but later in the night the wind changed to the west and be then fired the straw on the west side, and he says he saved his wheat completely. He worked at it all night lorg. An adjoining neighbor of his who had a lot of smudges on the north line, but had none on his west line, had his grain badly damaged by tbe wind changing. His millet was com pletely killed. This neighbor's millet is now dry and crisp, while Nortbrup's millett, though slightly nipped on the tops, is green and practically uninjured. For Over Fifty Years. Mre. Winslow's Soothing Syrup for children teething, is the prescription of one of the best female nurses and phy sicians in the United States, and has been used for over fifty years with never failing success by millions of mother for their children. During the process of teething its value is incalculable. It relieves the child from pain, cures dys entery and diarrhoea, griping in the bowels, and wind-colic. By giving health to the child it rests the mother. Price 25c a bottle. Save Your Straw. This year a good many farmers needed for smudge fires the straw burned last year. Straw ought not to be burned, but if possible distributed in piles around the outside of the farms and kept there. Straw kept on the north and west sides of a farm is in the best position for frost protection, as it is said frost does not come with an east wind. While thresh ing is going on it will require only a little extra labor to pile the straw up in this manner and have it safe for another year. Every farmer in the county ought to have, in addition, a thermometer on his place. A reliable instrument can be had for a small sum and is always a sure indicator of approaching frost. If, dur ing the freeze of last Saturday, wheat has been saved at all by smudges, and there seems to be no doubt of the fact, every farmer can certainly protect his gram if he tries.
