H. M. Clark: Everything quiet up our way. The man accused of the crime of setting the city of Sheyenne afire was released on bis bond and has disap peared. The loss is not mourned very much, though it is suspicioned that he is not the only one implicated, as far as circumstantial evidence goes, in the set ting of that fire. Peoples, our towns man, who has a branch store at Shey enne, was one of the losers. D. Martin: We have about ttie same amount of 6now in tbe Red river valley as here. Early in the fall a streak of snow fell north of Fargo, about 20 miles, ex tending into Minnesota, and for nearly a week those residents in that section of tbe valley had good sleighing, while the remainder had to be content with ex cellent wheeling.

He now seeks to foreclose the mortgage. Mr. Johnson purchased the animal two years ago. On New Years day the horse was replevined from him for the purpose of sdegunder the mort gage. The mortgage sale Jhas therefore been enjoined. Vice-president David Martin of Gran din, Traill county, camejin this morniug to attend the annual meeting of the Al liance Hail Association. The board is checking up tho books today and attend ing to routine business. President F. B. Fancher is expected^in from Bismarck tomorrow evening at which time the an nual election of officers will occur. The business of the association has increased considerably during the past year under efficient management and tbe prospects for the ensuing year arejeaid to be even brighter than the last. H. M. Clark, also one of the officers, came in last evening from New Rookford and will re main in the city for a couple of days. A precedent has jnst been established in a case decided by Judge Rose, where by sheriffs cannot withhold papers for any fictitious' fees.

The property was bid ir in the name of the owner of the mortgage, who sent the sheriff S5.G0 for his fee?, tho property baviug been bid in for less than 81.000. The sheriff withheld the papers and refused to put. them on tile until paid an additional dollar for notary's fees. Thip the owner of the mortgage refused to pay and pro cured from Judge Ro6e an alternative writ of mandamus. The matter waB heard on the 3d of this month and judgment rendered requiring the sheriff to complete the sale without receiving notary's fees, THE MESSAGE. [Continued from First Page.j to by farmers who claim that they con stitute lie chins least benefitted. This is erroneous. Good roads enable the farmer to place his products upon the market at a time when tliev are at the highest point bad roads often prevent this. Good roads enable him to deliver them in much better condition than they are otherwi.se deliv ered, and wit ii a saving of time, expen.se and energy. We believe there are few thinking people who doubt that the farmer of Non Dakota will eventually have a diversity of .products to market. When that time comes—and we shall ha\e not long to wa.it—:lie advantages to be derived from an early cii'"i^ to establish and improve our highways '11 be appre ciated. Good roads are the iorcrunners of other improvements—the erection of good farm residences, planting ol' groves and increased valuation of land. Moreover, when we conjunct a good highway, we build that which those who come after us will enjoy, for they are permanent. The system under which our roads are built does not produce the best results at tainable. There is work enough done and a sufficient amount of money expended, which, if properly done and expended, would construct roads that would last for years. We are of the opinion that, if roads were built find -kept in repair by a judicious system of contract and convict labor, un der the direction of a competent road en gineer, in eacii county or township, more desirable and sotiofactory results would be obtained. I would recommend: 1. That the plan of road work now authorized by law be abolished, and that the work be done by coutfact and convict labor, the expense to be met by taxation. 3. That the office of road overseer be aboIi-.hed.-and that the work be performed under the direction of a road engineer. i. That in order to se cure greater uniformity a joint, committee be appointed to whom ail roa^i bills bere ferreu. P^'iVIAFtlIS ANO CAUCUSES. Under the election laws of this state voters exercise tbe right of suffrage with out liiudera.ice. We believe there are but few thinking men who would consent to their repeal and the re-enactment of those previously in force. After holding two general elections under their provisions no gh'iing inconsistencies within the spirit of the lett :r of the law have been made manifest. If evils exist in the choice and selection of men to till public offices, they are to be traced to the caucus and the primary. Much thought is being devoted to the problem how to induce the voter to give them proper attention. The primary should be kept pure and just, for evils there perpetrated are not speedily rem edied. It tias long been a favorite criticism of those opposed to popular government that owing to a lack of interest on the part of the voter, and the unscrupulous methods of professional caucus workers, free gov ernment will fail. Such is possible, but not probable. We have that confidence in human nature to believe that men sooner or later will invariably assert their rights and exercise their prerogatives in rebuking designing men. Free government is not a failure, but if it suffer adverse criticism it inay be attributed to defective primaries. To guard against dangers from any source is as much the duty of the repre sentatives of the people as it is to provide for their correction. If, in your opinion, the system now in vogue is or should become a menace to the liber ties of the people, is encumbent upon you to enact such measures as will avert it, for the demoralization of our politics means the ruin of our liberties. CENSUS. Provision should be made by this legis lative .assembly for taking the enumera tion of the inhabitants of the state as required by the constitution. The enumer ation should be made as economically and speedily as is consistent with the nature and importance of the undertaking. RUSSIAN CACTUS. The attention of the legislative assembly will, doubtless, be called to the reports of damages being done by the rapid spread of wliar is commonly known as the Rus sian cactus. It is a question that demands thorough investigation to determine whether it is expedient and constitutional for the state to undertake its eradication or to extend aid to the districts overrun bv it. ENCOURAGEMENT O.- INDUSTRIES. The results of the last two years have not been very encouraging to those en gaged in agriculture, either in North Dakota or elsewhere. It ha« led :nanv ro doubt the propriety of confining our agri cultural products :o wheit alone, and to devote time and attention to other branches of farming. The cultivation of many plants, heretofore supposed to be unprofitable,has been c.uTied,on succesiullv in various parts of the sate. and warrants the prediction that the State of North Dakota will eventually furnish a variety of products for the markets of other states. Measures that will encourage the farmer to raise a greater variety for home markets, if for no other, should receive encouragement. Industries are often benefitted or in jured by indirect measure, as much as by those having immediate desigu. Every section of our state will eventually become wealth producing. Having the interests of the whole state to consider, rather than that of any particular section or interest, a liberal policy should be pursued in order that the active co-operation of men en gaged in various enterprises, which are or may become profitable, be secured no other policy will result in a full and satis factory development of our resources. NATIVE COAL. By previous legislative enactments the development of our corl i.eltis has been stimulated.

I shall be grateful if any measure that is reasonably ertain of aiding to further develop our coal fields receives recognition by your honorable body. CONCLUSION. After acquainting myself with the de tailed reports of the various departments of state, it may be necessary to call your attention, by special message, to matters not now presenting themselves. An intelligent people watch the labors of those chosen to serve them with un ceasing interest. As their wishes are gratified or denied, so will they commend or condemn. It is not to be expected that all will receive what they desire, but so long as the best interests of the state and the whole people arc advanced and made secure, the agents of the people have noth ing to fear. The character and not the number of measures you enact will determine the ultimate verdict of the peo ple upon your legislative acts. We have not the want and destitution in our midst that is prevalent in some other sections of our country. There has been uo suffering as a result of decreased productions. It is true that we have the poor and unfortunate with us, but the people of this state as individuals and by means of public institutions are euabled to care for them. You should be proud to represent a constituency so situated as not to require you to make known their desti tution to the worid. I enter upon the discharge of the duties of this high office, with which the people have honored me, conscious of its respon sibilities. I trust to be able to sustain the diguity to which it has been raised and to command the respect earned for it by vir tue of the abilities of my honorable prede cessors. When you shall have finished your de liberationsand returned to your homes, I trust that I shall be able to command your respect and confidence for having pursued a fearless and unprejudiced course, and for having shown you that courtesy due you as geutlemen and the representatives of a free and noble people.
