Two Men Go Down With
But Crawl from the
Wreckage Unhurt.
County Board Meets the Con
tractor and New Bridge
Is Decided On.
The steel bridge over Bear Greek
gave way last week while a 32-horse
steam engine pulling a plowing outfit
was passing over it. The rig belonged
to Peterson Bras, of Verona, and two
men went down the sixteen feet with
the engine and crawled out unscathed
through the water. There was no
warning* of any kind when the bridge
fell, and the men did not even have
time to jump. The bridge was prop
erly planked and no fault was attacoed
to the men who were crossing it. Two
weeks before the accident the Bame
rig had passed over the bridge on its
way east to do a job of plowing.
The board of county commissioners
met in Oakes Tuesday with Mr. Hewett,
of the Hewett Bridge Company of
Minneapolis, who erected the bridge in
1906, and all went to the scene
of the accident. Before the con
ference waB over Mr. Hewett agreed to
take the engine from the river, remove
this bridge and the one at Kilbernie of
the same construction and to replace
them with new steel structures at an
expense to the county of $1,200. This
is the third bridge of this kind that has
given way of the Hewett construction,
two of them being in this county, and
Mr. Hewett announced here that his
company had decided to put in no mote
of them.
The bridge here was of forty foot
spatr with ten foot approaches and was
guaranteed to hold the weight of any
engine that was built. But that
four yean ago and engines were
siderable lighter then than they are
now. The bridge to be put in will be
made heavier.
While the.county board was north
they looked, at the site af tbe new
bridge ssked for over the Jim river and
they will uadoutedly grant the request
of the petitioners for a new bridge.

Whiteatone Battlefield Commission
Can go Ahead.
H. F. Eaton, secretary of the White
stone Battlefield Commission, recently
received a letter from Attorney Gen
eral Miller, wherein that official re
versed his opinion in regard to the
sale of land in the Whitestone Battle
field. Mr. Miller gave his opinion
on a former act of congress, riot know
ing that a later act approved May 29,
1906, remedied the defect, and the sale
of land can take place. Section 5 of
Senate Bill No. 6190, says:
"That the state of North' Dakota is
hereby authorized and empowered to
sell such portion as it may deem wise of
the southeast quarter qf section seven
and the southwest quarter of section
eight and the northeast quarter of sec
tion eighteen and the northwest quarter
of section seventeen, all in township
one hundred and thirty one north, range
sixty-five west, heretofore granted to
said state to be used for the purpose of
a memorial park and burial ground of
the soldiers killed at the battle of
Whitestone Hills, the money derived
from the sale of said land to be used
by the said state only for the purpose
of erecting monuments as it may desire
to use as a memorial park. Provided,
that not less than forty acres be re
served immediately surrounding the
graves located on said land."

His Support of the Aldrich Pro
gram on Tariff Requires
Some Explanation.
Washington, June 19.—Senator Mar
tin N. Johnson is itching to get back to
North Dakota to enter the .fight he
knows ,he will have to make to explain
bis general support 'of the Aldrich com
bination in the senate in voting with it
on the tariff schedules. Mr. Johnson
voted for the McCumber amendment
putting lumber on the free list, but
otherwise he has been found lined up
with the conservatives in support of
the various schedules.
'I am looking forward to the time
when I shall be able to get on the
stump and tell the good people of North
Dakota what I believe to be the truth
about the pending bill," said Senator
Johnson. "I am not going t* wait
until the campaign of 1910, but am
going right at it as soon as I get home.
"The situation this year is in every
respect similar to that following the
passage of the McKinley tariff bill in
1890. I propose to follow the same
course with reference to this year's bill
that I did nineteen years ago. Then I
did not follow the plan of other repub
licans in the northwest who were can
didates for office. They went on the
stump in a more or less apologetic atti
tude toward the McKinley law. I did
not. I placed that bill before me and
announced to the people of my state
that it was a protection measure, de
signed to benefit the people of North
Dakota as well as other states, and
that the result of its enactment would
be the building up of business all over
the country. The result of that cam
paign was that I was returned to the
house for the next long term. Most of
the apologists were defeated, and the
next house was overwhelmingly demo
'I shall pursue the same course in
iny talks to the people of North Da
kota on the pending bill. I regard it as
one that upholds the principles of pro
tection in practically all the schedules,
and while not all that could be desired
from the viewpoint of the people of the
middle west, it is the best that could
be obtained, as the result of the mature
judgment of congress.
'The people of North Dakota are
protectionists, and I believe they will
indorse the law that congress will enact
in this extra session."
Alex. McKenzie in Washington
Seeking Peace for Sake
of McCumber.
The Latter Pretends to Spurn
Idea That He Advises
With McKenzie.
Washington. June 19.—Alexander
McKenzie today completed his con
ference with members of the North
Dakota delegation, and left for home
tonight. Those with whom he- has
talked declare that there was nothing
of local importance discussed, at least
no patronage matters or any attempt
made to line up the delegation so that
they would act together in the next
campaign. Instead of talking politics,
it was declared by Senator McCumber,
among others, that McKenzie simply
talked what North Dakota wanted in
the way of tariff.
"I was already well informed on the
needB of the state," said Mr. McCum
ber, "so he turned his attention to
other senators."
Although it was declared that Mr.
McKenzie did not talk state politics, it
was learned that former Senator Hans
brough and he took dinner together
last night and talked for an hour or
more after the dinner was concluded.
This is the second time that 'these two
North Dakotans have exchanged more
than a "how d'ye do" in considerably
over a year. McKenzie called on Hans
brough when the latter was seriously
ill in a hospital in Minneapolis last win
ter, but since then, although they have
both been in Washington at the same
time, and even in the Capitol building,
there has been no conversation between
McKenzie also spent upward of
hour in Senator McCumber's private
office today with Alfred Blaisdell,
retary of state of North Dakota, who
is in Washington with his wife on his
way home from Europe. It was said
that they were merely having a social
chat, but it was noted ihat Mrs. Blais
dell remained in the outer room while
the "chat" was in progress.

To Cover County.
The Dickey County Telephone Com
pany held its first meeting last Satur
day at Merricourt and organized a com
pany with which they expect to get a
phone system that will eventually cover
the whole county. It will incorporate
for $25,000 and run for a term of twen
ty years. The plans of the company
are to erect and maintain a telephone
system covering the entire county and
connect with the various farms and
towns throughout the county.
The western part of the county is
almost solid for a proposition of this
kind and a number of shares have been
already taken. The shares are to be
115.00 each and $45.00 worth of shares
entitles the holder to a telephone in
stalled in his home or place of business,
ready for use.
This is a move in the right direction
and it iB hoped by the company that all
of the local phones in the county will be
consolidated under one company. The
following officers were elected:
Directors—J. W. Crabtree, C. W.
Sullivan, Reinhold Hasz, M. M. Cook,
Gottleib Gebhardt.
Committee on by laws—W. J'. Webb,
A. Glenn, L. E. Slauson.
Committee to confer with other lines
—C. D. Hathaway, L. W. Sullivan.
