At the meeting of the grain
men at Fargo the following reso
lution was adopted:
We, the delegates of the Farm
ers' Elevator Companies of N- D.
in convention assembled at Far
go, N- July 27, 1904, adopted
the following resolution:
That the Farmer Elevator com
panies of N. D. t.i.ka stock in and
become in embers of the Minne
apolis Fanners' Exchange for the
purpose of owning and operating
our own terminal facilities.

Entered at the post office at Hope, North Da
Kota. as second class matter.
The value of any fire-fighting
apparatus lies largely in its being
available for use when needed.
Many incipient blazes are extin
guished by the prompt applic
ation of water where a delay of
but a few moments would mean
the destruction of the building.
We have apparatus for fighting
fires apparatus that is inade
quate in case of a large blaze but
sufficient for small lires and to
protect buildings adjacent to
burning ones- In order to be
effective it must be gotten into
use before the fire has made
much headway. Everything
should be kept in readiness for
its immediate use in case of need
This being the case we cannot
understand how, if the city coun
cil have in view the interests »of
the property owners of the town,
the present conditions in front of
the engine house can be allowed
to exist- The tile laid in front
the hall were taken up and a di
ch about two and a half feet deep
dug across the engine runway.
1 he dirt was thrown up another
foot and a half and then a fence
built along either side. It is im
possible to get the engine out the
front way, and. only iu dayligiit
and by the exercise oi the great
est care co'J id it be ta's^u .J She

u'-l kinds in t»h«

the part of the aathori ties in al
lowing such an obstruction to re
main in front of the engine house
is wholly inexcusable, if not
"We incorporated as a city this
spring in order to get increased
powers. Fire limits were to be
established, sidewalks to be re
paired and built where needed,
and various other measures tak
en for the improvement of the
town. We have been a city for
nearly two months and so far are
no better off for improvements
than under the old regime There
have been no new ordinances
passed and the city could not to
day compel the building of a loot
of sidewaltr, or in fact do but lit
tle more than could Lave been
done as a village. Unless some
thing is done soon it will seem as
though the change was simply
useless expense and the advan
tages offered nothing but wind.
Since the raise in rates by our
liverymen they are losing much
of the traveling trade. This
morning a cigar man and drug
man drove to Clifford in a rig
ordered from there last night.
The liverymen are not charging
the traveling public one cent
more than ihe local trade and
claim that the present rates are
necessai'y in order to enable them
to do business at a profit. It
seems to us that the proper thing
for us to do is to '"pass up" the
travelling men who will not pat
ronize our local liverymen, It is
being done at other towns near
here and is nothing but right.
