BEFORE EASTERNERS
North Dakota Bankers Show
Eastern Capitalists Dan
gers in Dumping Grain
Crop on Market in Next
Few Months—United Ef
fort Nleeded to Carry
Farmers a s Present
Price Slump.
Fargo, North Dakota, August 14—
"Bankers of the east are disposed
to assist bankers of North Dakota,
who are working oh a plan to fi
nance the farmers during the next
few months to prevent the necessity
of their dumping the crop' on the
market in its present depressed con
dition," said A. G. Divet attorney for
the North Dakota State Bankers as
sociation, who was recently called
east to appear before the senate com
mittee on cu^ency and banking. Mr.
Divet, who returned1 yesterday, said
in an interview today that the state
ment published recently in the Cour
ier-News. that he had gone east to in
terview the Republican national com
mittee was entirely without founda
tion.
Not Political Trip
"I met Senator Ladd j^nd Senator
McCumber and shook hands with
them and had a couple minutes talk
with Mr. McArthur, Senator Ladd's
secretary," said Mr. Divet.'"That was
the extent of my meeting with any
one connected witli politics. I did
not see, expect to see or desire to
see anyone connected with the na
tional Republican committee.
"The senate has under considera
tion at this time a bill changing the
method of taxing national banks,
made necessary in part by the recent
litigation over bank taxes. Because
of my familiarity with that litigation
and the different angles of bank
taxation, I was asked to appear be
fore the senate committee on cur
rency and banking, which I did.
Orderly Marketing Plan
"As has been heretofore mention
ed in the press of the state, the
bankers of North Dakota are earnest
ly laboring to work out some plan
of financing the farmers during the
next few months to prevent the nec
essity of their dumping their crop
on the market in Its present depress
_ed condition. I discussed the possi
bilities of, such a plan with some
leading bankers in the east, and on
my return with a group of twin city
bankers. The working out of this
plan is of vastly more concern to me
and of interest to the people of the
state, than what the national Repub
lican committee is.
"The tendency of the eastern in
terest hihs always been to encourage
the eai*fy Wtfrketiftg Of grain' iand
thus tH^earty Uqlidiftfcnk H"farm
paper, arid the' bankers' of NortTT Da
kota are performing a yeomen ser
vice for the people in their endeavor
to change that attitude of the east
ern financiers, and convince them
that the interests of everybody lie
along the lines of furthering a sys
tem of marketing that will prevent
the driving of the crop to the eleva
tor and the glutting of the market
This viewpoint i sbeginning to fav
orably manifest itself, and eastern
men are beginning to see more and
more that the conversion of the crop
into immediate money is not as im
portant as the assurance that it will
be eventually converted into more
money.
"I find everybody disposed to lis
ten to reasoft and to do whatever
seems best for the real farming inter
ests, but it is going to be a matter of
education and. continuous effort for
sometime to make clear the point
that creditors might better wait a
lew months than to demand the con
version of the crop into money im
mediately. It is perfectly obvious
that more liquidation of debts will
follow from a delayed and orderly
marketing, th&n from' a dumping in
of the' whol^,- crop at one time, and
bankers of the state aire making
every effort, to finance, the farmers
past the present slump in prices, and
they are making equal -effort to in
duce eastern capital to aid them in
that regard."

JAMESTOWN CHURCHES
POOR ADVERTISERS
VISITOR DECLARES
"Isn't it remarkable that every
bank, store and business house in
Jamestown has a big sign telling
what it is and what' it stands for on
the outside of the building, but
your beautiful Methodist church
and your magnificent Presbyterian
church do not have a single mark to
show what or why they are?"
It was with this question that Dr.
Holt of Philadelphia, who is to
speak at the Presbyterian church
Sunday morning, greeted a repre
sentative of the Alert on "the street
here today. "Why every church in
the land should have a sign out tell
ing what kind of a church it is, what
its pastor's name is and where he
lives and the time, and place of all
of its services."
Dr. Holt also declared, in response
to an Introduction, that he is "the
oldest and shortest Presbyterian
preacher.' in the United States."
From the tenor of his remarks and
the vigofpusness with which they
were expressed, one might easily be
justified in adding "and the liveli
est."
FARMERS CONCERNED
OVER RAIL STRIKE
ACCOUNT OF GRAIN
Bismarck, N.D., Aus. 15—(Spec
ial)—Farmers in Mountrail and
Burke counties, wes^ of the Ft.
Berthold reservation country, are ex
hibiting concern over the railroad
strike, fearing they will be unable to
ship their grain. Dr. J. H. Worst,
commissioner of immigration, who
has returned frota a trip in the .wes
tern part of the state, said today.
There, are no storage facilities avail
able for all the grain which will be
threshed, he said.
Farip.ers.. in that section also aff
gettfnk along with as little help as
possible, he said, many af. them cut
ting their own grain and then shock
ing it themselves.
Crops in the lawer Yellowstone
valley and Ft. Berthold reservation
are the best he has ever seen in North
Dakota, Dr. Worst, a resident of the
state for 40 years, said.

NOTED JOURNALIST
OF ENGLAND, DIES
Death, Which Came Early
Today, Makes Great Im
pression Throughout Eng
land-—Has Opposed Poli
cies of Lloyd George Since
War. __
London, Aug. 14.—Viscount
Northcliffe, noted British publicist,
died this morning. News of North
cliffe's death was given out by the
doctor's, who have been attending
him, in this bulletin:
"Viscount Northcliffe died at
10:12 o'clock. The end was perfect
ly peaceful."
Later it was stated that the
cause of Lord Northcliffe's death
was suppuration or the production
of puss within the heart, which was
followed by acute blood poisoning.
The death of no other unofficial
person could have caused deeper im
pression in England than that of
Lord Northcliffe. The news was not
a surprise, as the bulletins issued by
the doctors the last week plainly in
dicated that their patient was dying.
The nature of the fatal disease has
not yet been revealed, but it is ex
pected the public will soon be told.
Lord Northcliffe was. by far the
most noted figure in British jour
nalism, and the first question on ev
ery one's lips was as to what effect
hiB
death will have on the politics of
the Times and his other newspapers,
which since the end of the war have
strongly opposed the Lloyd George
administration and its principles
witl\ the notable exception of its
dealings with Ireland, which the
Northcliffe press supported through
out.
Death was caused by an inflam
mation on the lining membrane of
the heart with consequent infection
of the blood and sudden failure of
the heart, duo to fainting.
Lord Northclifle was ill at the
time the armistice was signed. His
illness was diagnosed as due to ade
noma of the thyroid gland, for which
he underwent an operation in June,
1919. Although he was incapacitat
ed, he exerted Iconsideirable influ
ence on the British government dur
ing the Peace Conference at Ver
sailles.
Plans were made early in 1921 for
a world tour. The start was de
layed until July because of labor
trouble, involving the publishing in
dustry, and a renewal of hostilities
between Lloyd George and himself.
Lord Northclifle attacked the mo
tives of the premier and Marquis
Curzon in desiring to represent
Great Britain at the Washington
arms conference. As a result of this
attack, government news was barred
from the Northcliffe press. Lord
Northcliffe sajled, for America defy
ing the boycott,
During his world tour, Lord
Northcliffe occupied the public at
tention of each country he visited,
displaying great knowledge of the
problems facing various nations. Ar
riving in New York, July 23, 1921,
he warmly endorsed President Hard
ing's plans for the armament confer
ence. In Australia he saw a grave
danger in that country being over
run by Asiatics, and in several ad
dresses revealed an intimate knowl
edge of Australians' national prob
lems. During his tour of the Pacific
he made a close study of the situa
tion in the Far Bast, and In Hong
kong expressed the opinion that the
Anglo-Japanese
Alliance wasa bar
to its solution. He returned^ Lon
don from his tour.in May, 1922. In
June he was reported to have made
a tour of-^Germany incognito.
Shortly after the completion of his
world tour, differences grewinthe

THE WEEKLY
DEVELOPMENT OF
LIGNITE DEPENDS
ON FAIR PRICES
Stanley Washburn, President
of New Lignite Coal Oper
ators' Association, Says in
Letter Discussing Coal Sit
uation.
Bismarck, N. D., Aug. 16—(Spe
cial).—Lignite coal operators in
North Dakota must be assured of a
fair rate' for their output if there is
to be extensive development of the
lignite industry in the state this
year, Stanley Washburn, president
of the recently* organized North Da
kota Lignite Coal Operators' asso
ciation, said in a letter dispatched
today to H. B. Spencer, national
fuel administrator, at Washington.
"The uncertainty in regard to
prices has made the lignite business
so far a speculation rather than an
industry," said Mr. Washburn in his
letter. "If North Dakota is to mine
a sufficient quantity of coal this year
to be a real factor in helping the
northwest, it is public policy for the
mines in the state to have a fixed
rate for their output which will war
rant every small mine in pushing its
development to the maximum ca
pacity. Obviously, few of the small
er mines, anrl there are oyer 100 of
them -in the state, dare venture on
the purchase of new equipment, etc.,
making quantity production pos
sible until they are sure exactly
what price the government is going
to allow. One of the functions of the
North Dakota Lignite
C09.I
Operat­
ors' association was to form a me
dium of contact with the' govern
ment to find out exactly what rates
the government. are going to con
sider fair In North Dakota. Under
the old wage scale the $3.60 at the
mine for the average "'run of mine
coal' is probably fair to those op
erators who have adequate railroad
facilities, but there are many mines
in this state, probably 100 or more,
that are obliged to haul their coal
by wagon to the nearest. railroad
terminal, or else pay the. expense
themselves of having spurs put into
their properties.
"I think the so-called fair rate in
North Dakota should allow some
extra margin for the mines who have
to haul coal by wagon or undertake
new expenditures in putting in new
spurs to their property or oth6r ex
traordinary expenses. The differ
ence of 25 cents to 60 cents per ton
to the consumer may make the dif
ference as to whether or not a great
many of the small mines operate at
all, and I should think this differ
ential above the $3.50 per ton for
the average "mine run,' which' I un
derstand to be the price your admin
istration is fixing, will make the dif
ference of hundreds of thousands of
tons of coal put out in North Dakota
this winter."
Mr. Washburn renewed the re
quest of the operators' association
for the appointment of a North Da
kota operatoi-s' representative on the
national advisors committee. Mr.
Spencer had replied to such a' sug
gestion that he believed one repre
sentative of the consuming public
in the northwest could handle the
situation.
"The reason that the association,
of which I am president, asked tor a
representativ e in Washington,
wrote Mr. Washburn, "is because the
lignite industry is a pioneer one and
not analogous to the established
coal industries of the central and
eastern fields. There are, as you
know, over 600,000,000,000 tons of
unmined coal in North Dakota. This
will run from 60 to 65 per cent of
the heat and power values of the Il
linois coal which normally comes to
the northwest. A great deal of our
coal here is easily developed, and
provided North Dakota Is assured of
a fair rate at the mine the output
from this state can probably be dou
bled this year, and in a large meas
ure relieve the acute situation In
Minnesota and even further east.

Go to All Parts of U. S.
The Jimkotans left Tuesday a. m.
for Aberdeen, having played their
last game of the season here Tuesday
night. The Jimkotans have made n
host of friends in the city and all
hope they will return for a longer
stay next year. A number of the
players expect to return to the city
at the close of the season, August
27 th for a few days stay.
The presence of the young athletes
has added to the interest and pleas
ure of the summer and the James
town baseball fans undoubtedly have
seen more and better baseball than
ever before. In addition the team
representing Jamestown has adver
tised this city far and wide and possi
bly fang in the smaller towns have
equalled in loyalty and enthusiasm
the support of the local lovers of our
national game. The Jamestown base-!
ball team and membership of James
town in the Dakota League has been
a decided asset to this city. The play
ers have conducted themselves as
sportsmen and are an all around fine
bunch of young men Jamestown re
grets that the season did not end
here, but is fairly well satisfied with
the showing made this first year in
organized baseball and the fans are
confident that the team representing
Jamestown next
year
—should the
league be continued and this city
retain the franchise—will land clos
er to the top in the pennant race.

Wilbur F. Smith, better known a
"Smithy", the scrappy manager and

children will go to Detroit, Michigan^
Mr. Smith's former home for a three
weeks stay. He expects to return tr
Jamestown later for the hunting sea
son. Mr. Smjtli is interested in the

Roy Birkenstock, "Birkie will 1
return to Burlington, Iowa, where
he is engaged as a railroad mechanic.
Birkie has entertained the baseball
public with some regular big league
pitching and has often been called
the top notcher in the position in the
Dakota League.
W. J. "Bud" Keegan, the cocky
Irish pitcher, is scheduled to return
to Minneapolis. Bud is just out of
high school and is rather uncertain
as to what he will do this winter.
J. A. "Jack" Hubbard is from Bem

ployed on the Great Northern Rail
way. Jack Intends to get into some
independent ball following the sea
son.
Frank "Hank" Simpson hails from
St. Louis and will be St. Louie
bound on August 28th, where he ex
pects to settle down for the winter.
Hank has been playing ball most of
the season around Iowa.
Ed "Eddie" Carlson come from the
far west, and spent moat of the- sea
son with Valley City Hi-Liners, which
probably accounted for the round of
applause he always received when he
stepped to the plate as a Jimkotan.
Eddie wil lreturn to Tacoma for the
winter months playing in the league
out there.
Frank "Judge" Gurney will gc
back to Detroit, where he holdf
down a position as justice of the
peace. The fans all know he is
good lawyer because he convinced
both Wingfield of the Fargo team
and Magoon, the umps, that they
were wrong last night. "Judge" has
played ball for years and is credited
with "what he can't do with his
hands and feet he can do with his
head." Fans wonder what sentence
he would pass on some umpires he
has met.
Hans Wick comes Srom Minneap
olis and will journey back to the
twin cities for the winter. He will
take in some of the games in the A
A. Hans made a home run in the
game with Fargo, Monday, as his
parting gift to the Jamestown fans.
K. Fitzgerald, "Pee Wee" and
Peterson "Petle", the twins from St.
Louis, will return to that city where
they are traveling salesmen. Per
Wee and Petie spend much of their
time thru the winter in playing pro
fessional soccer football. They were
members of the U.S. Champions las?
year and made a trip to Norway. The
fight of these two St. Louis athletes
was a great help to the Jimkotans.
"Back to Frisco where I will get
my chops for the winter" is the song
of M. A. Koenig, known as Mark
and Dutch, is singing. Mark is just
out of the San Francisco high schools
and is the kid of the team having
reached his 18th birthday while the
team was jplaying an exhibition

The umpires
The Jimkotans not only supplied
thedemand for baseball but they al
so furnished the material for a ser
ies of practical jokes which enliven
ed the atmosphere. The stock joke
or frameup was to induce a local or
visiting player to attempt to call up
on a fictitious young lady and the
other lover each time showed up and
fired blank cartridges upon the tran
sient wooer, who always fled much
to the glee of the perpetrators of the
joke. This was pulled successfully
several times at Jamestown and also
at other cities aroupd the circuit.
One Jamestown player was caught
taking fifty cents worth of plums to
his heartless damsel—and a Wahpe

an ax.
VANDALISM AT CITY

The City School Board iv. investi
gating the authors of vandalism
shown in the breaking of large win
dow glass, in both the Franklin and
the Roosevelt schools. At the Frank
lin School at least nine large win
dow glass have been broken, appar
ently by the throwing of rocks thru
tlie, windpws ffom tlje outside. At
the Roosevelt school, in the first
ward, nearly a dozen windows have
been broken, most of them perfor
ated with small holes," apparently
done by rocks with sling shots ,or
by some other means not yet known.
The school authorities are looking
up this matter and further develop
ment are expected soon.
The large glass in the Franklin
school were all in the basement win
dows, and were protected by wire
screens. The glass is expensive and
it will cost considerable sum of
money to restore the glass in the
windows that have already been
broken.
