It is extremely hot along the Mis souri slope at present, but there are hotter places. None that we know of by actual experience, but it is stated that there are places hotter than this. AVe may not even see them while we live, but we may be consoled by the knowledge that we are not dead yet, iuitl that consequently the heat is not HS intense as it might be. There is no use in sweating about it. There is no use in giving way to an overheated and feverish imagination. Home simple rules for avoiding the the effects of the heat may he tersely Jaid down. They will appeal to every one as full of common sense and wis lom. Observe them— Don't drink hot lemonade. Don't eat roast pork. Don't hunt, for cool places. There aron't any. Don't lie down in the hot sun. Don't follow the ice wagon. Don't wear an overcoat. Don't wear woolen underwear. Don't burn hard coal. Keep your ears open. Somebody anight ask you to have something. Don't ask anyone if it's hot enough for him. Don't look at the thermometer. Don't sleep in a warm room. Above all, keep cool. Don't wear a fur cap. Walk on the shady side of the street. Don't eat hot soup. Don't talk and fill the atmosphere with hot air. Read up on remedies for sun etroke. A little common sense will enable voti to get through the hot spell much easier than you might do otherwise. There was a close contest for the senatorial seat in the Larimore district and H. E. Lavayea won cut by a few votes over H. F. Arnold, who has rep resented that district in '.no senate for si number o£ terms. After the decid ing ballot was taken, Mr. Arnold moved to make Ihe nomination unanimous. i. Mr. Lavayea has been an attache of the legislature for a number of terms in a clerical capacity, having been chief clerk and assistant chief clerk of the house. He is a capable gen tleman. and should make a valuable momb of the Tipper ncus.*. GOOD RESULTS OF REPUBLICAN LEGISLATION. At this time, when the opposition to the republican administration in national affairs is moving toward its position of assault upon the policies which now govern in public affairs, and .especially in criticism of the fin ancial policies of the government, it is well to note one of the most strik ing facts in connection with the na tion's fiscal affairs. The total of 8, 4 and 5 per cent bonds which have been returned to the United States treasury to be exchanged for the 2 per cent bonds authorized by the financial law passed by the republican congress last March, has now reached the handsome figure of more than $«ll», 000,000. This is a tremendous sav ing in the annual interest charge up on the government, as well as a strik ing manifestation of the strength of the nation's credit. The fact that the bondholders of the country are willing iO accept a bond paying only 2 per cent interest, and exchange therefor a bond drawing 4 or even 5 per cent is the best possible testimonial to the safety, solidity and wisdom of the re publican policy which made such a re sult possible. What the republican administration and congress in its legislation has done to thus assist in strengthening the nation's credit, and reducing the interest charges upon the United States treasury, is simply the passing of the act of last March, making se cure the gold standard by stipulating that the bonds of the government shall be paid in gold or its equivalent, and renewing the pledge of the na tion that the obligations of the United States shall be paid in the money of the gold standard in value. In addi tion to strengthening the credit of the United States at home and abroad, the result of the exchange of the high in terest-rate bonds for bonds drawing only 2 per cent is to effect a saving to the nation whicn will amount to more than six million dollars during the current year at least, with further saving as the policy is carried out in the future. To do this the republi can administration merely arranged by law that the government shall do in respect to its obligations what ev erybody has known that this self-re specting and honorable nation would do. pay its obligations in the best money known to the world. The new 2 per cent bonds have not yet been generally taken by individual holders throughout the country, but the great er part of the issue thus far put out in exchange for .tne higher rate bonds, have gone to the national banks to be employed as basis for circulating notes. The result is that about $75, 000,000 of additional circulation is put out among the people, all being money as good as gold, and thus con tributing its share to reduce interest rates among the borrowers of the country. The 2 per cent bonds of the last issue carry on their face in plain letters a quotation from the act of congress of last March, pledging the faith of the government to pay the bonds in gold coin of the standard value. Officials of the treasury de partment are satisfied with the work ings of the law up to this time. It is a practical demonstration of the wisdom of the republican party's fin ancial policy. The state board of equalization that meets at the capitol today will con sider the question of taxation carefully, and having obtained careful estimates of the probable amount of revenue needed in the state for the coming two years, will equalize values and fix a rate of taxation carefully. It has been the policy of the state board for the several years last past to increase the assessment of the railroads, and last year a large increase was made both in the railroad assessment and in the other assessment through the state. This was necessary because of th'e pressing need of revenue and the fact that property was returned at a low figure. This year the property is re turned much higher and it is not be lieved any such radical increase as that of last year will be necessary. The board will take all the elements of the situation into consideration, however, and will act for the best in terests of the state and of the people of the state. We intended only to singe Editor Tuttle of Mandan and Yurrup in our friendly little tribute of last week, from the lamentation in this week issue of the Pioneer, we must vertently have blistered a little, difficult cases are only cured by heroic treatment, and we have no doubt remedy has had a good effect. do not aim to deal harshly with Editor Tuttle. He is a remarkable man he knows it. He knows it so well it sticks out on him sometimes resin on a hot sidewalk. In such but :'s inad Still, sroic the We and that like cases, BISMARCK WEEKLY TRIBUNE: FRIDAY:, AUG 10 1900. we cannot refrain from calling the at tention of the general public to the fact that Editor Tuttle is Editor Tut tle and that he has been to Yurrup. Few of us have been to Yurrup. Few of us have glided along the placid Rhine, basked in the liquid sunlight'of Venice, and trodden the peaks of the Alps. The nearest we have gotten to the Alps is when we have climbed the hill leading away to the Morton coun ty court house, and as for Venice— well, we have seen Mandan when the Missouri river was high. We have no desire to disparage these Mandan imi tations of the real things that Editor Tuttle saw when he was over in Yur rup. Editor Tuttle himself admits that the greatest thing he ever saw was when he gazed into the flawless mirror of the Irish lakes. We believe the statement to be true. If.we were to class the great things of the world anew, we would range them in this order: Editor Tuttle, The Mandan Pioneer, Mandan, What little there is left. Hut when we, from the admiration that bubbles up within us like the new well on the west side of the river gurgles up through the sand, seek to tell in feeble words how reverent and deep is the homage we feel and pay to Editor Tuttle, it is indeed grievously disappointing that he should spurn it from him as Caesar put away the offered crown. And if we may no longer sing Editor Tuttle's praises, we shall hang up the harp that rang so sweetly, and refuse to be comforted. Clews' weekly financial review says: "The Chinese situation displays dis tinct improvement. It is known that early reports of carnage and murder were much exaggerated that while the Chinese have shown some duplicity, still the course of the powers is now clearly towards rescue of the legations and the enforcement of an orderly and capable government in place of the one now existing in Pekin. American diplomacy is winning great distinction for its vigor, calmness, prudence and unselfishness. The attitude which President McKinley antl Secretary Hay nave taken lias been exceedingly effect ive in checkmating the plans of some of the powers for the dismemberment of China—a course more likely than any other to precipitate war and inter national jealousies. By standing dis interestedly for the integrity of the Chinese empire and offering the Chin ese a fair chance to settle their own affairs, after making adequate indem nity for the crimes already perpetrated our government has done incalculable good towards maintaining the peace of the world. Now that the march to Pekin has commenced, we may ex pect some stirring news and possibly further bloodshed nevertheless the outlook for a solution of the Chinese question without a disastrous war is brighter than at any time since the troubles began and the financial situ ation abroad must be correspondingly relieved." The Chicago Times-Herald publishes a picture of Governor Fancher, and with it this comment: "F. B. Fancher, governor of North North Dakota and republican candi date for re-election, is a former resi dent of Chicago, and might have been one today were it not for the big fire nearly thirty years ago. He went from Michigan to Chicago wibh his parents just in time to get settled and see.the city reduced to ruins. The Fanchers returned to Michigan, where the present governor was educated. In I.SSI he removed to North Dakota, and has been prominent in politics ever since. He is interested in several manufacturing and public service en terprises and has taken part in the management of state institutions. In 1NO,s, after having been twice elected insurance commissioner, the republi cans elected him governor. His suc cess this autumn is conceded." This is the kind of advice^^SItor of the Grand Forks Plaindealer gives Editor Tuttle: "The outsider is being entertained to a more than ordinary degree by the war of words going on between the Bismarck Tribune and the Mandan Pioneer. It is becoming somewhat personal, but then, personalities are Sold SOFT WHITE HANDS I Soak tbe hands thoroughly, on retiring, In A HOT lather of CCTICUBA SOAP, the most effective skin purifying soap, as well as purest and sweetest for toilet, bath, and nursety.

It was full of sly wit and genial humor. As a ver bal cartoon it was a masterpiece. Just how true to life it was we will not pre sume to say—just how much truth there was in the sly references, we do not know. It no doubt was a carica ture, but one well drawn. Tuttle has made the mistake of attempting to re ply. Such cartoons admit no reply. If they are overdrawn, they need no reply, and if they are true in substance reply is impossible. The article in the Pioneer on Jewell. Foley et al, while it may contain a large amount of truth, comes too late to have an effect. It is the "you're another" of the small boy who has been called bad names. Another thing, it shows heat under the collar. This will never do in a controversy, where the personality of the writer is concerned. Wit must be met with wit—the result is always tne survival of the fittest. Every man has his weak points and it is the touching of these which hurts. Had the article, entitled "The Tribune Jewell", been reserved until the public had had its laugh over "Excusing Ed itor Tuttle" it .might have been consid ered a stand off. Mr. Tutitle is a strong writer, a man of energy—a man who believes in nimself and no doubt with cause, but ne is short on that commodity known as American wft and the ability to see a horse when it is on numbed one." The Chicago Times-Herald explains the reduction in the price of wheat after the remarkable advance in price several weeks ago, as an effort on the part of wheat buyers to get the price down where it would be a profitable crop to buy. The shoals that the wheat speculator is going up against when he thinks he can judge the course of the price from crop conditions, is shown in the following from the Times-I-Ierald, regarding the attitude of the big buyers of wheat: "It has been forgotten in the excite ment that it meant money in pocket to the warehousemen of the northwest to get the wheat price back whence it started that to start a new crop right, which means low, is the northwest ern grain buyer's first principle of bus iness and to keep it low until the ele vators are full is the principle next in importance. Well bought is half sold is the warehousemen's pet aphorism. And for a new wheat crop to advance 22 cents a bushel a full month before ready to harvest is viewed with dis may by the men in the northwest whose announcements are taken for granted. They denied serious spring wheat damage until there was no de nying it any longer and then, after the gains of July, they adroitly began to talk a wonderful improvement. They will hold to this until the thresh ing and movement make the truth be yond denying, but by that time they will have no incentive for talking low. They will have the gooas in their hands by that time, and, instead of well bought half sold, they will be recalling that it is not business to talk down the goods on one's own shelves." It is hoped the action of the repub lican state committee at its Grand Forks .meeting will meet with general approval and the course of events wnl prove the wisdom thereof. The loca tion of the headquarters at Grand Forks was wise notwithstanding Far go's advantage as to accessibility. Fargo had the headquarters in the last campaign and rather expected that Grand Forks would have it this time. The republicans of Grand Forks are now active and earnest and the folly of two years ago will not be repeated. There seems to be but little disaffec tion in the Red river valley and, no cause for alarm. The parties aie, however, more evenly divided in the eastern part of the state than on the slope and it is the duty of the leaders in the western part of the state to ao those things that will assist the work ers in the Red river valley in their fight against the common enemy. There should be no sectional antagon ism or prejudices. Let us realize that, we have a fight before us. Let us win the best victory we can and In the cleanest, cleverest manner possible. When the date of the meeting of the new republican state committee and the conference of the candidates and other republican leaders was fixed for the 7th at Grand Forks the fact that the state board of equalization meets on that day at Bismarck was not thought of. As arrangements have been made for a grand rally at Grand Forks and as it is now too late to send out notice of a postponement of the meeting of the committee it is likely that those members of the state board of equalization who are candidates will be absent from the first day's ses sion of the board at Bismarck. This being the probability it will be well for those who have business before the state board of equalization not to an ticipate a quorum before "Wednesday.

THE The Hottest Heat Filter Plants of Europe Bacteriology in Commerce The Inside of the Earth If Bismarck accepts the responsibil ity of maintaining and protecting the open parking that will surround the new depot—and of course it will—it will be necessary to strictly enforce the pound law and prohibit the running at large of live stock in the city lim its. This will be along delayed bless ing. It is doubtful if another city the size of Bismarck exists in the country where so much damage to shrubbery and trees has been done by cattle and horses running at large. It is hoped that when the city park is an accom plished fact the pound ordinance will be enforced to the letter. For attaching automatic couplers to freight cars, as required by the inter state commerce law, which went into effect this week, the cost is $25, and as there are thirteen hundred thousand such cars on the railroads of the coun try, it will be observed that the cost is no small item. The automatic air brakes cost more—estimated at $35— so that the aggregate expense to the roads of the country is enormous. But statistics prove that the cars so equipped will soon pay for the expense in reducing casualties to life and prop erty. The resolution basing the apportion ment for the next republican state con vention passed by the central commit tee at Grand Forks, will encourage straight republicanism, and a straight party vote, and discourage voting for candidates of other parties, because of local pride. These votes do no goo,], anyway, and only serve to cut down the representation of counties. Under this resolution, it is to the interest of every county to see that a straight vote is cast for all candidates—no use less votes for "favorite sons." The censorship of Editor Tuttle saved Col. Little from a share in the compliments extended the Bismarck Tribune in the last issue of the Man dan Pioneer, by associate Gilbraith. Mr. Gilbraith is an easy, graceful, yet vigorous writer whose productions would merit much praise but for the unkind and unreasonable censorship of TM A ^fc '•SV: McCLURE'S MAGAZINE.

He is making addresses be fore the summer schools of the state, and at the Grand Forks school said: "We are living in a great state whose progress- along all lines which go towards making up the commonwealth has excited the admiration of all think ing people, with a population' approach ing 40(1,000, made up of the best and most intelligent people of this and other counties, with the best soil under the sun, with 2,500,000 acres of school land at the minimum price fixed by law, $10 per acre, will eventually amount to the magnificent sum of $25,000,000, with a sinking fund as the result of the sale of school lands al ready amounting to $2,000,000, the in terest upon which, together with the fines and tax fund amounts to $40,000 per year. This sum is distributed throughout the state to meet necessary expenses of maintaining our system of common schools. The school popula tion of 00,000 children being taught in the school buildings that are not ex celled in point of the latest and best furnishings, and a grade of teachers not excelled anywhere in the United States is certainly a pleasing prospect when one takes into consideration "That the maximum of education proves the minimum of government" and "That the population of well taught children is the measure of civil ization of that country." Mr. Tuttle. There is such a marked departure from the ordinary newspaper ethics in Mr. Gilbraith's writing—such utter recklessness and abandon—the contrast with Mr. Tuttle's terse, rabid, logical and argumentative style is in deed striking and—pleasing. The Dakotas will be among the first states in the west visited by Gov. Roosevelt when the campaign actively opens in September. It has been definitely decided that the rough rider shall go through Northern Indiana, beginning early in September, and from there he will go into the Dakotas, making several speeches. Some reports seem to make it ap pear that there was some strife—as to the secretaryship—at Grand Forks. This is a mistake. It mattered not to Jewell or Tuttle—both being personal and political friends—which one was chosen as secretary. Tuttle isn't dis appointed—neither is Jewell—and there you are.

Forum: The chief dispenser of justice at Cape Nome, in fact the only one for that district, is R. N. Stevens, who was appointed by U. S. Judge Noyes, formerly of Devils Lake, to suc ceed two other commissioners. It is a nice berth for "Steve,' and it's a safe bet he will see that order prevails in Nome. Of the appointment The Seat tle Daily Times says in its Nome News: Without conflict of any kind, United States Court. Commissioner Stevens on July z, displaced Swinehart and Shepard at Nome, who had been acting there previous to his arrival, and held his first session in the tent at the barracks occupied for the last few weeks by what has been known as "Shepard's Court." The latter had a few matters pending before him, but owing to the order issued by Judge Noyes, constituting R. N. Stevens the only legal commissioner in the Nome precinct, he turned over his unfinished work and quit. Swinehart, too, went out of the judicial business without a murmur. Judge Noyes expected to leave for St. Michael on the United States transport Seward the next day Before going from Nome ne had notice published of the sitting of court her® in thirty days from date. Some threshing was done in Ransom county in the latter part of July, and it is said that in one case wheat was harvested, threshed and ground into flour in one hundred days from th» time the wheat was seeded. A. F. Neyhart, who went to Klon dike this spring, has returned. He is the father of the young electrician killed in Minneapolis a few days ago. His other sons, who accompanied him to Alaska, will remain there. Bight new school houses will be built in Stutsman county this year.
