Mt THINKS STANDING ARMY WASTEFUL PLAN i« adequate Land Force at [inimum Expense Should Be Military Policy. |Blsmarck, N. D., Aug. 21.—"The jily military policy which the national aard should advocate is a policy .wich will give the country what Is feeded in the way of an adequate Suid force with a minimum of ex pense." This is the opinion of General G. 'Angus Fraser, commander in chief of Jthe North Dakota national guard, In •v^rhich he has been active for 31 years. ''jp.enehU Fraser is a member of' the 'national executive committee of the national guard association, to which jpost he was elected at St. (Louis a few 'eeks ago when the national guard "sociation held its annual meeting Jfere. "The national policy in the past," bntinued General Fraser, "has been rely in time of war upon a profes ional volunteer army, augmented by "fwlunteer troops, the volunteers com ing In the main from th6 national gWra. The objections to such a policy nave been pointed out many times They may be summed up as follbws: The cost of maintenance of thfe regular (iy in time of peace, by reason of ke fact that it must, compete with tne labor market for its enlisted per |M»nnel, is out of all proportion to what Sis produced. "This may seem an unkind criti cism, especially to that class of officers d,f the regular army who feel it a duty to defend every policy and act of the war department. It is, however, a jfst criticism and one which is con s'urred in by ihost regular officers who #*ve given the subject of military ..jjpioUcy intensive and interested study." 'Sugar Shortage Is Serious In Canada '•fWinnipeg, Man., Aug. 21.—That the people of western Canada have facing them a serious situation is the sub atenee of a telegram sent by the Brandon Board of Trade to the Cana dian Trade Commission regarding the great scarcity of sugar. The telegram is also being endorsed by the Manitoba Retail association, While sugar haa been hard to obtain for some weeks past, full realization of the seriousness of the situation is becoming more apparent with large quantit&s of fruit arriving in the various districts with no prospects of -V*. -M 1785 •t ^, 1 s-c a supply of sugar with which to pre serve.

W1LUST0N tirOMAN APPOINTED RURAL SCHOOL INSPECTOR Bismarck, N. D., Aug. 21.—North Dakota educators are delighted with an announcement -made today by Miss Minnie' J. Nielaon, state superinten dent of public instruction, to the effect that Mrs. Martha P. Tatem of Willis ton, one of the best known school women in the state, has accepted an appointment as inspector of rural, consolidated and graded schools on Miss Nielson's staff.

"I trust it to true that the bank in solvent," said Mr. Lofthus "but there will be no reopening until every p.en ny of shortage has been made up, and I think is safe to announce that it will be 'under entirely new manage ment.'

Bismarck, N. D., Aug. 21.—Loud boasts from, league leaders that their bank, with its $12,000,000 in deposits. Will "carry" the state of North Dako ta as long as it needs carrying and never feel it, were "called'" today by State Auditor Kositsky, who referred the leaguers to Sec. 182 of the consti tution, in which the forefathers of North Dakota decreed that their state shall not borrow money unless "such debt shall be authorized by law for certain purposes to be definitely men tioned therein." Mr. KositzKy contends that, while the state owns the Bank of North Da kota, the funds of that bank are not public moneys which can be trans ferred at will to the state treasury for the defraying, of governmental ex penses. He insists that if the state borrows a penny from the Bank of North Dakota, the loan must be ne gotiated in the same manner as though the Bank of North Dakota were a private institution, and the loan must be secured by a bond issue authorised by the legislative assembly. This means, says Mr. Kositzky, that a special session has become Impera tive. State Needs a Million. "The state now has $37 and some cents in its general fund. Within ten days we will have a monthly payroll of $62,000 to meet, this including a voucher for $3,333.33 which has just been put in for the salary of Director General Cathro of the Bank of North Dakota dating back to April. During th® next Bl* months, or up to the time when new general taxes will begin coming in, we will need $1,500,000. Miscellaneous collections during that period, based on last year's experi ence, will be $500,000. That will leave a deficit of $1,900,000 to be made up in some way. "Sec. 182 in ^Article 12 of the con stltutlcm as amended by the league last fall provides that 'no future in debtedness shall be incurred by the state unless, evidenced by bond issue, which shall be authorized, by law for certain purposes, to be clearly de fined. Every law authorizing a bond issue shall provide for levying an an nual tax, or make other provisions, sufficient to pay the interest semi-an nually, and the principal within thirty years,' and so forth. Legislature Must Act. "Constitutionally, North Dakota HAT,literally,is the reason why the American has won the proud distinction of ted man, J. Because a cheap, dependable, illuminating oil made from petroleum was developed first in the United States, the people of this country had the opportu nity of studying late into the night long before such luxury was possible elsewhere. The petroleum industry, in which the Standard Oil Com pany was a pioneer, has made it possible, even in remote places, for man to read? study and acquire knowledge in com fort, after the day's work is done. The tremendous development of America shows that the American has burned the midnight oil" to good purpose. The seven men who manage the Standard Oil Company (Indiana), the 19,568 men and women who carry on the busi ness, and the 4623 stockholders, all are proud of the fact thalt their Company has been, and is, such a potent influence in the development of the nation. Today the Standard Oil Com pany (Indiana) operates the greatest and most complete re finery in the world, together with several others of lesser output. Throughout 11 states the Company distributes the refined products so thoroughly that even those in the remote cor ners are able, at all times, to get their requirementsat a low price. Thus is shown another marked benefit accruing to all from the activities of the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) as a public Standard OS Company j#.-. (Indiana) 910 S.

Detroit, Mich., Aug. 21.—United States engineers in charge of govern ment work and navigation in several districts of the Great Lakes are pur suing a program for the elimination of menaces to navigation which will mean, it is declared, the removal of all wrecks that lie in channels or har bors and interfere with the move ment of vessels. To date, it is stated, the United States and Canadian governments and salvaging contractors have this season removed, by raising, blasting or tow ing away, fifteen submerged or par tially exposed vessels. By removing these wrecks the partially blocked channels were cleared, reducing the hazards of navigation, eliminating the necessity of posting special markers to designate the location of the hulks and giving passage room badly need ed at many points until the govern ment can complete its program of deepening and widening channels and harbors. Among the wrecks raised and sal vaged this year were those of, the steel tug General, sunk in St. Mary's river, and the coal carrier Vulcan, sunk in Portage lake at Houghton, Mich. The wreck of the steamer, C. W. Moore, was reflected at the North Branch channel, Chicago, and the hull of the steamer Desmond was removed from South Chicago harbor. The old. steamer, George H. Van Vleck, sunk across the upper entrance to Ecorse channel, Ecorse, was raised and moved. In many instances the hulls of the salvaged boats had a val ue, it is stated, because of increased demand for carriers due to war and post-war needs, equal to their original cost. Winnipeg Men Accused Of Conspiracy To Face Trial In Assize Court Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 21.—Rev. William Ivens, Alderman A. A. Heaps, Alderman John Queen, George Arm strong, R. E. Bray, R. J. Johns, R. B. Ruasel and W. A. Pritchard, labor leaders of Winnipeg, will stand their trial before a jury at the next session of the assize court in October on a joint charge of seditious conspiracy. The preliminary hearing of the evi dence for the prosecution was con cluded August 18, after some 118 wit nesses had bee'fi heard and over 1,650 exhibits, mostly letters phamplets and books, had been produced in court. The last session disclosed some very sensational evidence. Reading from notes, alleged by the crown to have been prepared for a speech by Rev. Wm. Ivens, counsel showed that the, accused had favotfed **dlr6ct action,'-S®? revolution either bloody or bloodless." Mr. Ivens in his notes, had also stated, "constitutional government is no long er possible." It was further brought out in the evidence that the people in Winnipeg took the matter so seriously that oyer $80,000,000 worth of riot insurance was taken out during the strike period.

D., Aug. 21.—A poll will be taken here on August 29 to determine whether it is the- will of the people that the city purchase the Chautauqua grounds as a city park. The chatauqua association expresses itself as willing to sell for $15,000 re taining auditorium privileges twenty days each year." The chatauqua grounds here are well kept up and if purchased will make an ideal city park. It is thought by those favoring the move that the sale of concessions during the chatauqua season will make the venture a profitable one for the city.

"21.—Seventy five thousand dollars' worth of busi ness property was destroyed and the entire town of Elgin was endangered by a blaze which broke out at 3 o'clock Wednesday morning in a pool hall on Main'street, presumably orig inating from an unextinguished cigar ette stub dropped by some late patron of the pla£e. Elgin's new water works system is incomplete, and the town was le£t at the mercy of the flames until a rail road tanlc car could be brought in by a Northern Pacific traifi from Car son, an operation which consumed two hours. In the meantime, New Leip sig dispatched its chemical engine to the flame-ridden city. The blaze was finally conquered aft er a traction engine had been hitched to a building owned by F. T. Lembke, which was in the direct path of the flames, and the structure was razed, In the meantime, volunteer fireipen had been pumping from the railway tank car, a block and half distant, and the New Lelpsiz fire equipment had been used with good effect. Ten business houses were burned. The amount of insurance carried is not known. Plans for rebuilding are already being discussed. $100,000 DAMAGE SUIT IS BEGUN BY FARGO CHURCHMAN Fargo, N. D., Aug. 21.—A suit for $100,000 damages against the Caro lina Power & Light Co., for injuries suffered by his 18-year-old daughter, Miss Ada Tyler, on June 9 while visit ing at Raleigh, N. C., has been com menced in district court at Raleigh by the Rev. John Poyntz Tyler, of Far gor bishop of the Episcopal church of North Dakota. While visiting a schoolmate at Raleigh, Miss Tyler was riding in an automobile which collided with a street car of the Carolina Light & Power Co. For several days physi cians feared she would not live. Bishop and Mrs. Tyler are now in the east, according to word givftn out this morning at their home, 206 Eighth street south. Miss Tyler was a student at Sweet Briar, Va., at the time. Tlie complaint recites that as a result of the collision Miss Tyler was injured about the head and face her skull was crushed from the nose to the center of the top of the head the brain was exposed, making removal of parts from the Bkull necessary she lias been rendered totally blind in the right eye and the sight of her left eye has been permanently impaired her hearing has been impaired and the right side of her face and head are paralyzed.

STATE NOT TO BUY EQUITY PLANT, SAYS OLIVER S. MORRIS Bismarck, N. D., Aug. 21.—In re sponse to a persistent rumor, Secre tary Oliver S. Morris of the industrial commission has assured the press that that body has no intention of buying the Equity Co-operative Packing company plant at Fargo that under the act creating the industrial com mission the board could not take over the plant if it desired to, and that no such desire, to his knowledge, has been -expressed. The Equity Packing company sever al ,months ago increased Its capital from $1,000,000 to $3,000,000. Some were unkind enough to intimate at the tims that the concern might be intending to unload its plant on the state at the increased valuation. Sec retary Morris appears quite positive that nothing of this kind is in pros pect. Aside from the operation of its small experimental mill at Drake, which was reopened under state man agement yesterday, it now appears improbable that the state will engage in the handling of grain and the man ufacture of flour on any exftnsive scale before the fall of 1921. Persons Injured In Automobile Smash At Buxton Recovering Buxton, N.

The driver sprang to one side, barely saving his life, but Miss Ashein was caught be tween the two cars and badly crushed, dying at 2 o'clock in the afternoon. A sister of Miss Ashein and three Knudsvig Bisters made up the other members of the party. AH were more or less shook up.
