3| V S?' NOONDAY LUNCHES OF LOCAL CHAMBER PROVESUCCESSFUL Eighty-nine Members Served Today as Compared With Sixty at First Meeting— Talks by President Spring er and Rev. Ward F. Boyd. The weekly Tuesday noonday lun ches of the Jamestown chamber of commerce. are proving popular, the attendance at the meeting today be ing eight-seven as compared with six ty at the first luncheon held last week. Three long tables had been placed together in the shape of a U for the accommodation of the chamber but it was necessary to use three or four smaller tables. The members of the chamber stood and sang "America" before the serv ing of the dinner, and President CI. M. Springer and Rev. Ward P. Boyd gave ten minute addresses following. Mr. Springer complimented Secre tary Haas on the success of his plan for informal noonday meetings, and suggestcd^that in order to get an ex pression from the members on 'var ious questions, that some sort. of a question bo:: be worked out so that any one might bring up for discus sion (uiy question which he might have in mind, without the necessity of asking to speak: Mr. Springer said (hat. he had had a hard time trying to get the mem bers out to the regular evening •meetings, and that in view of the success of the noon lunches he had come to the conclusion that he had made .a mistake in either not.charg ing fifty cents admission to the even ing meetings or in not providing a feed. Mr. Springer asked R. C. Goodhue, county agricultural agent, and Miss Hattie Perry, newly elect ed county superintendent of schools, to stand in order that all of the members of the chamber might see them and know who they are. He characterized the work of the coun ty agent an dthe superintendent of schools as two of the most Import ant being carried on in the. county. Rev. Boyd. Appeals For Application of Christian Principles in Business Ilav. Ward. F. Boyd, pastor of the Jamestown Presbyterian church gave a ten minute address, urging his hearers to apply the teachings of C'liristainity to the conduct of their business. Rev. Boyd said that the world knows what happened during this week, the last week in the life of Christ, better than any other week in history, and that in view of the importance of the influence of this week on the history of the whole worlti, he made no apology for speaking on that subject. He said that he wished to bring before his hearers, three facts, Christ, the Cross and the Church. Tfcere vejr* Kggpa.l Jewing. Mr. \Boyd 'said thaffljthe ]j||imsiple"€f Christianity could ntt be|npplied to modern business—that the business ol' the world could not exist if bas ed on the principles of Christ. This idoa-is changing, Mr. Boyd said, de claring that the thot of the people, nationally and internationally, has changed more since the signing ol' the Armistice than during the War. Two Lessons Rev. Boyd said that he wished to bring two points or principles before his hearers first, "that man cannot get away with his own sin, and sec ond, "that the fundamentals of prosperity are not materialistic". He declared that the quotation, "Be sure your sin will find you out" should be inscribed on the walls of every man's mind, and every man should be made to realize that "you can't get away with it!'. All men, he said, "will assent when they hear some speaker say that prosperity is not all money, but that when they get back to business they think, 'No, prosperity is money, stocks and bonds'. Statistics show, Mr. Boyd said, that every time the church figures, both vCatliolic and Protestant, go down a financial panic is impending and that when ever they have gone up a wave of prosperity lias followed. In closing he urged his hearers to remember that to leave their chil dren money without character is to do them more harm than good, and that "a man is never more Christian than in his business", and called up on them to apply the teachings of Christ to business and make Chris tianity popular.

WESTERN ELECTRIC HEAT RATES QUESTIONED IN DISTRICT COURT John and Arthur Knauf began suit against the Western Electric Co. on last Saturday to restrain that company from enforcing a payment of what is alleged an exorbitant and illegal charge for heating the "Knauf Block", it being' contended by the' plaintiffs that the Board of Railroad Commissioners had not granted this Western Electric Co., the right to raise the rate for heat from G5c per thousand a year ago to a $1.10 per thousand rate, without an order from the Board of Railroad Commissioners, or unless agreed up on by plaintiffs. The Western Elec tric Company sent written notice that if the plaintiff failed to pay the price demanded by it, that the heat would be shut off and the ten ants deprived of heat, which act plaintiffs maintain would be illegal and wrong and unreasonable. A statement of the case says: "Plaintiffs deposited $660.00 in the James River National Bank to the credit of the Western Electric Co. and claim that at the rate of charge of a year ago, that sum is all which is due the Western Electric Co., and uppn giving a bond in the sum of $2,000., the court, Judge Coffey acting, issued a temporary restraining order enjoining the Wes tern Electric Company, its agents and officers, from shutting the steam off from the building, and causing suffering, illness .and loss to the ten ants. The plaintiffs say they are ready, willing and able to pay a lair and just rate, but after fixing their .rates for rental, with heat, claim it is unfair of the Western E lectric, to raise the heat to.such an exorbitant rate of cost, as to make the owners of buildings, simply a gents of the Western Electric, to collect the rents, and turn them ov er to it. "The 1919 session of the Legisla ture passed an act giving the Board of Railroad Commissioners the pow er to raise or lower rates for such public utilities companies, and it is claimed that without the consent of the owners of the buildings heated, or without the order of the Board of Railroad Commissioners, there is no existing right to raise the heat rate a half higher than the rates of the year preceding. "It is expected that the suit will be finally submitted to the Court at the next term and then decided. A hearing on the temporary" restrain ing order has been set for April 18th. The heat on the "Kuauf Block" was not turned off as threatened. Many of the patrons of the Western Elec trlc-^lieat ,are complaining that, the -rates^Yar^" exorbitant lifnd the steam furnished, to Jje' "'neafr water", and the meters forced to work too rap idly owing to the "near water" grade of steam being furnished. "It is said that other patrons of the Western Electric Company will demand a return of one third of the amounts charged and that, if payment is refused they will institute legal proceedings to collect same. It is al so maintained that notwithstanding the very warm winter the heat costs arc a half higher than in the pre ceding doubly cold "winter." FARGO WILL PAVE RED TRAIL ENTRANCF Fargo, Mar. 22.—- Contracts for three paving jobs, aggregating ap proximately $200,000. including the project of paving Front St. from Tenth to Seventeenth Sts., will be let by the city commission at its ses sion Wednesday. s The jobs are known as No. 154, the intersection of Tenth St. and Ncrthc-rn Pacific Av, north of the Tenth St. subway, a matter which lias been under fire by the commis sion for several months job No. 153 Front St. from Tenth to Seventeen th Sts. and Job No. 152, the alleys in blocks Nos. 4 and S, original town Eite of Fargo, which area is to the rear of the Moody department store extending from Fourth to Sixth Streets South. The most important of the threo projects^ is that of the paving of Front St., which was petitoned for by the Fargo Commercial club last December. The road is the main entrance tp Fargo from the west and is a part of the Red Trail. Petition ers claimed that it is the most de plorable stretch of highway, on the Red trail. The paving of this stretch of road will be started this spring. RED RIVER RISING Fargo, Mar. 19.-—A rise of several feet has been noticed in the Red river as a result of the mejiting of snow during the p^st few days. With the snow practically all gone, there is no danger of a flood this year un less torrential rains hit this section of the, country. The river is practically clear, of ice except along the edges where it still holds out. During the recent cold spell the river froze over again btitt not enough to bear tiny weight and soon melted again under, the in fluence of the' r.\.

Bismarck, N. D., Mar. 22.— (Spe cial).—The cases in which attacks are made on the minimum wage re quirements for women adopted by members of the Workmen's Com pensation Board, sitting as members of a minimum wage board, are ex pected to proceed to trial on their merits, as a result of the decision of the supreme court in upholding the action of District Judge Nuessle in granting temporary injunctions against enforcement of certain classes of the orders. The supreme court, in an opinion written by Justice Grace, holds that Judge Nuesstle did not abuse his dis cretion in continuing in force the temporary restraining orders until the final disposition of the cases on their merits in the trial court. "The opinion is intended to, and does, dispose of the appeal in each of said eases, so far as the questions presented in those appeals are hqre presented." said Judge Grace. "We refrain entirely from expressing any opinion, with reference to the merits of either case. The cases were brought by the Northwestern Telephone Exchange company and the Grand Porks Steam Laundry company. A similar case was filed by the North Dakota Inde pendent Telephone company and at torneys filed a stipulation that the action in the first two named cases would obtain as to the latter case. In Judge Nuessle's court the fol lowing orders of the minimum wage board were attacked: sani tary regulations as to drinking wa ter, ventilation, dressing rooms, etc. providing that in case minors are employed by week or day, a 6 to 48 hours a week shall constitute a full week, etc regulating minors' em ployment minimum wage of office workers minimum wage of female telephone workers and minimum wage of female laundry workers.

Continued from Page 1 enough of the proceeds from the sale of its bonds to "thaw" out the $2,970,000 now "frozen" in thirty year loans and make it.immediately available for use .by the various political subdivisions again. The other initiated laws provide for other needs so that when these laws are approved a special session of the legislature may not be need ed for some time if at all. These laws go into force thirty days after they are approved. New officers like wise take office almost immediately. ISiick up Investigations If we back up on the recall il. will be charged that the legislative in vestigation was a farce. What shall we say? Shall we treat the work of our legislators as a joke? Shall we say that the principles .of govern ment, for which we have waged such a bitter and costly fight, are after all, not worth enough to make another fight for at a moment when everything is admittedly in our favor except that we are tired. Personally and as an official of the Independent Voters Association I am like a lot of other people in that I can as an individual have a much better time without a cam paign and an election this summer. But this question of whether or not to go thru with the recall is too ser ious a question to settle on the basis of personal feeling. We haven't a right toi push it aside just because we are tired. The voters of North Dakota are at a critical place. The quality and caliber of our statesmanship is be ing- put to a test. If we do not clean house by means of a recall election this summer, it is very doubtful if we will ever do a clean job of it. The proposition to recall League officials is based on charges of ofli-i cial misconduct. To prove the charges the Independents can read admissions made by Nonpartisan officials while testifying under oath. If the Nonpartisans want to recall Independent officials, they will have to recall them because of political differences, as they have made no charges of official misconduct and they have no evidence with which to prove such charges if they were to make them. So let the Nonpar tisans undertake to recall all the Independents they want to. The In dependents have all the best of it from the start. At the next primary and general election, the Independents will be Democrats and Republicans again. A dangerous three cornered figure is then inevitable. Now we can all be together. Let us not fool ourselves into thinking that there can be political peace in'North Dakota while consti tutional government is being under mined, our schools polluted, tax money squandered and despotic state officials talking about revolution and machine guns. Hadn't we. bet ter gather ourselves up for a £e,al contest this summer?' If -the-Inde pendents would do that we can., win" so completely that there prospect of political peace', while after that. The future is full of more undo-' sirable compromises and dangerous complications than the most of us realize now. We will do' well to carefully take stock of the troubles ahead before we decide to stop the recall campaign now under head way. Backing up on the recall now may be a mistake that we will re gret for years. THEO. G. NELSON, Secretary. THE FUNDS THE ADMINISTRA TION WILL CONTROL There are many people who still aelieve that the Nonpartisans can.do no more harm if they are left, in of fice for the balance of the current biennial period (2 years). In order that the readers may have information on which to base calculations as to the .amount of state funds our present officials will have the handling of this year anc! next year, we are publishing here with an itemized statement of the state funds that were collected dur ing the fiscal year ending June?. 3(jth. 1920. It will bo seen that tiiis.^i mounts to more than fourteen nfll lion dollars, ($14,000,000). These items will amount to a considerable more each year as the state grows older. In the course of two years more than thirty million dolldrs, ($30,000,000) v/ill be passing thru the hands of our state officials. As long as the Bank of North. Dakota remains open, there will be a num ber of county, township, school and villagk boards that will also put their funds in that Bank. This will increase the amount of money that they can use for political propagan da and boodle. They can use this money, and leave a deficit in the. various funds which will have to be taken care of by the Independents whenever they take charge of the state government, and the longer before they do it the liigger the deficit may be.

The waste from smut is entirely preventable by th:: formaldehyde treatment. An increase of over four but-hels per acre has been found in spring wheat in which only a little over one and one-half bushels were actually destroyed by smut. The increase, when it occurs, is probably chiefly due to the fact that the grain is affected by other seed-borne parasites than smut and which are as effectually checked as the smut. You can get full directions v.iiere you buy your formaldehyde. Test Seed Wheat for Germination It is a serious risk to sow any grain with out first testing it for germination in wet blot ting papers. All of the pupils in our rural schools know how to cio this. Count 011c hundred seeds last as they some, into a blotting paper which has been moistened. Fold over lii a book, wrap in oil paper or cloth, insert a strip of rag about one inch wide by ten incbts long exactiy li! e a lamp wic! \Vet the whole test and then place so that the wick hangs in a glass of water, keeping the whole thing damp for several days. Open after the fifth or sixth day and count the .strong, weak and dead kernels. This will give you the perecnt uge of germination. If you want to see how strong the grain is, turn the test inside out without disturbing it and the kernels will grow into green thoots. They oupht to grow three or four inches tail before beginning to bend over. It is very impor tant that you should know the vitality of your seed. Sowing more seed when poor is not the way to do it. If your test is below US or 94 per cent, you had better change seed. Good Marquis seed wheat is available in almost any quantity. ficials of the company announced to day.

Uni formity of seed is of great importance. Kxtra large or giant kernels are not always the best, especially when mixed with ordinary kernelH. You can tell by the general appearance of the seed whether or not it has been attacked by rust, scab, smut or other disease. 15e careful to fan out all shriveled kernels and kernels with discolored tips. Examine to sec that you have no great amount of yel low berry but dark colored kernels. A little work on a rainy afternoon, will give wonderful results in the intelligent use of the fanning mill. You can hitch up your gas engine and do the work easily. Treat Your Seed for Smut If You Need Seed, Advise Us Spring wheat varieties are becoming badly mi: ed. If you have any doubts about your seed, you had better send a sample to your agricultural college for judging, or send for list of seedsmen or growers who have fine Marquis seed of superior quality. Fine, clean, heavy wheat always brings a premium. Quality is always most profitable. Spring Wheat Crop Improvement Association 552 Security Building, Mhuwapolls. Mian.
