Referring to the charges of misappro priation of campaign funds preferred against Senator Hansbrough, the latter snys in a upccial to the Minneapolis Journal: "Not one dollar©»' any money intrusted to my bands as nat.itn»l committeeman from North Dakota went into any part of the state against I he repnblican ticket nor any pert of the republican ticket nor was it nsed in behalf of any mde pendent ticket or any candidate of the independent ticket nor was any portion of it devoted to corrupt, purposes. My instructions from the national commit U'S were to get republicans tithe polls. This I did as far as possible in the short time I had after returning from New York in October. "So far as the disbursement of the commttftee funds is concerned, I hold myself in readiness to account to-tlie itional committee Tor every dollar I handled. I must decline, however, to k« a financial statement to those patriotic individuals colling tbemselve* republicans'who seem bent oo the total disruption of the republican party North Dakota. I believe that my reputation for integrity aud honesty will stand against the assaults «f party-wrec&ere in North Dakota as well as those who bave ken refuge in Minneapolis and vho •are using a pixr simple-minded egotist to furi her their scheme of destruction." I'be words of warning uttered by Senator Ca-ey, in his epeecb of with drawal, should be'committed to memory by every republican in the state. Seeds of dissension are being sown, which threaten to hear bitter fruit. Animoei ties are taking root which, unless sub dued, will spread abroad and coverevery political pathway of the future."

Mr. Hall took the con tract (verbal) to build the road for a cer tain amount (5100), and also to put in a timber culvert, the lumber for which wonld be furnished by the city. A mis understanding arose from the fact that a blind drain, built of bowlders, was con structed under the road instead of a tim ber culvert, for which $25 extra was asked. The communication frona the Mayor was to ascertain if such sum was rightfully due Mr. Hall, or not, as it was not according to the street and bridge committee's under standing of the subject, and accordingly payment was denied until the matter could be definitely settled.
