North Dakota News
-North Da­
kota Reclamation Commissioner Her
bert A. Hard, who. has for some time
acted as. consulting engineer for the
three states, comprising the Red. Riv
er alley, arid who has spent two
weeks in this vicinity surveying the
dam and reservoir sites along the
Sheyenne, has suggested harnessing
the Sheyenne and using its great la
tent' water nower.
"With coal prices soaring beyond
$12 per ton the cheaper power of the
river can be utilized by the people 'of
Hansom, Barnes, Griggs arid other
counties," said the commissioner. "Es
pecially is this true in Ransom and
Barnes counties through which the
Sheyenne makes a long circuit of over
100 miles in good retaining valley."
As shown in a survey Just made
through most of the extent, Engineer
Hard reports that the valley is 125 to
260 feet deep and the river channel
itself is 12 to 20 feet deeper. The
latter, he says, affords excellent loca
tion for a battery or series of email
commercial dams, while the former'

yielding greater power. These reser

Fear of Congestion Reason
For Cutting Down of^
First Movement."
Bismarck, N. D., Aug. 29:—But five"
per cent of North Dakota's quota will
be moved1 to Des Moines on September
6. This announcement was made this
morning upon the arrival tit the capl
tol of L. P. Gellerman, special repre
sentative of the' American Railway
association in charge of the transpor
tation of the draft arpiy. The origin
al .plan to move 30 per cent Septem
ber 6 is abandoned because of Years
that the movement of so large a body
of the draft array tft a time when, the
mobilization of the. National Guard,
probably will be in, progress will re
sult in aerioua congestion. North Da
kota, therefore, will send a very small
contingent, approximately 280 men,
to Des Moines a week from tomorrow
instead of six times that number, as
originally announced. This advance
guard, It is presumed, will attend to
arranging company quarters and care
for other prellihinaries assigned, in
the National Guard to one company
from eaoh regiment selected to go
quantities of liquor brought over the
line from Baker,. Mont, are being
seized by Sheriff Norem in his efforts
to make Bowman bone dry. Two
Baker men gathered in with whiskey
in their possession were fined $100
and costs. The stuff is being brought
over' In wagons, in Jitneys, in saddle
bam pockets and other containers,
and a very large amount of it Is com
ing in.

The first thing asked of the North
Dakota trooper when he reaches. Des
Moines will be a bath. Then he Will
have his 'physical examination, his
vaccination, for typhoid,' paratyphoid
and smallpox. If any minor physical
deficiencies are found, there will be
recommended to his commander' a
course of exercises designed to cor
rect this condition. The first two
weeks of training will be occupied al
most entirely by these exercises. Dur
ing the second two weeks, regular
training will begin. On his arrival at
Camp Dodge each^North Dakotan will
be assigned to a section of the camp
reserved for recruits from his own
local section of-, the divisional area.

Chief John Grass, old Sioux
Chieftain, Taking Active
Part in Red Cross.
Bismarck, N. D., Aug. 29.—Indians
from the reservations in North and
South Dakota are doing "their bit" in
the war by enlisting in the army, and
according to army authorities, rejec
tions among them have been compar
atively few. Flat feet, a common
cause for rejection amdng whites, is
practically unknown among the In'
dians, according to the examining offi
Chief: -John' Grass, said, to be- the
mightieSt Hvirig Sioux chieftain.-'at-*
though tod old' to'be admitted in the
fighting forces, is also acting his part,
as he has been appointed vice presi
dent of Sioux county's Red Cross
chapter. Although In feeble health,
the venerable chief ha pledged the
Sioux to assist in the work of the Red
Cross- and his aid will be a valuable
asset, it was said, as he has not lost
his power over the tribesmen, amoni
whom his word has been Utw for hall!
Recently Lieut. Col. Douglas Settle,
U. S. A., and Capt. Leonard Hughes,
Fort Logan, Colo., who have been-In
charge ..of.t mustering North Dakota
rtroops into federal service, together
with Captain A. B. Welch of the Na
tional Guard, visited the old chief at
his home near Fort Yates. The visit
was no novelty, however, for the aged
warrior, as he has enjoyed visits from
Sherman, Sheridan, Grant, Logan,
Custer and many other great generals
of his time.
Captain Welch Is an adopted son
of the tribe and several Bloux are in
his company. Among them are Bid
McLaughlin, grandson of Major Mo-.

^consolidated school in North Dakota
is a sucoess from every point of view,
and, as the months go by, the success
assumes even greater proportions,"
said N. C. Macdonald, state superin
tendent of publio instructions of
North Dakota in his address at the
h'ational conference of sural education
being held in this city. "There are no
cases of consolidated schools being
disorganised to be replaced by on*'
room schools. There are scores of
places where the people would like to
organise these schools but do not
have the. pioney to support them.
"In'North Dakota the consolidated
school plan costs more than the onfc
room school tilan, but is worth much
more. The, future prospects for con
solidated schvols In North Dakota are
bright. Six years ago It was with dif
ficulty that the legislature was per
suaded to appropriate $6,000 for this
purpose last winter the legislature
appropriated $120,000 with enthusi
"There are now 602 consolidated
schools in the state. Last yea* there
were enrolled in the consolidated
schools, SO.12'5 farm boys and girls
as against 5,626 six years ago. Of
this number 8,676 did high school
work, as against 460 in 1911, giving
an Increase, of..102 per cent."
The conftrfince. started this morn'
ing and will'Continue for three days.
Besides Jifr. Macdonald, there are five
other North Dakota educators at the
meetings whio will give addresses on
rural school work. They are: R. M.
