NG. JOHNSON ELECTED
TO II. Sl SENATE..
Senate and House Agree on Resolu

of the State Penjtentiary,
Bismarck, Jan. 15.—The legislature
held a joint session this afternoon to
listen to an address on taxation by
Prof. J. L. McVey, tax commissioner
of Minnesota qiidpresident-elect of
the North Dakota university. The
galleries were filled and the address
was well received.
The house committee on state af
fairs today reported the Benate reso
lution for an Investigation of the state
penitentiary, providing for a commit
tee of four from the, house and three
from the senate, empowering-the com
mittee to subpoena witnesses and call
for books and papers and appropriat
ing, from th§^general fund- to pay the
expenses of the Investigation. The
senate will probably concur In the
Senator Fierce presented a bill in
the senate appropriating $2,000 for an
investigation by the governor and at

of grain to terminal points, and for

Andrew Carnegie has been asked by
joint resolution to make the state uni

In the house Mr. Floyhar of Valley

is a member, by introducing a bill to
abolish the publication of insurance
statements, one of the best pieces of
patronage in the state insurance de
Gov. Burke this afternoon announced
the appointment of John Carmody of
Hillsboro and S." E. Ellsworth of
Jamestown as the two new justices of
the supreme court provided for by the
amendment to the constitution carried
at the late election.
That the state anti-pass law is far
ther reaching in its effects than was
intended by the man who framed it,
or than the most radical opponent of
the "easy riding" privileges would de
mand, is the belief of a Moorhead man
who keeps posted on matters at the
state capltol. So general i3 this opin
ion that it is probable the law will be
amended at the present session of the
legislature so as to correct some of
the inconveniences now experienced,
said this man today.
In theory, it is argued, it is all right
for everybody to pay his way when he
travels by steam or electric road.
That is only a matter of justice to the
corporations and to the public. But
in theory, too, it certainly is good
business for railway companies to sup
ply employes with passes to enable
them to travel freely in the interest
of the Companies.
But the recent ruling of the attorney
general that no city or state official
can accept free transportation, has
had a wide application, and one not
foreseen. It is ruled, for example,
that notaries public are state officials
in that they are commissioned by the
state to perform certain legal func
tions. Hence, a notary public, who Is
in the employ of a railway company,
and who .is commissioned a notary
merely to facilitate the business of
the company, finds that he cannot hold
a pass on the road that employs him.
So it is that all the .notaries public
employed by the Great Northern road
in its general offices, with one excep
tion, have resigned, and that one Is
doing little but acknowledge papers.
Under the same ruling the state uni
versity will be deprived of the serv
ices of Judge Thomas Wilson, general
counsel for the Omaha road. Judge
Wilson is a member of the board of
regents of the Minnesota U, and as
such is a state official. He could
scarcely be expected to surrender his
annual pass to serve the university for
Then there is Frederick Weyerhau

Hill, president of the Great Northern,
was recently offered the position of
chairman of the state highway com
These -men are active, public-splr
ited citizens, whose services they are
willing to give to state or city gratis,
but who are not willing to surrender
the right to ride free upon the rail

cause of the too close application of
the #nti-pass theory.'

today declined to agree to the house
amendments of the. resolution for an
investigation' of. the state penitentiary

part of the senate consisting of Sena
tors LaMoure, Pierce and Tolcott was
named. The house conferees will be
named tomorrow and will probably
get together on a resolution. The ob
jection to the resolution is understood
to be" the giving of the house of a
majority of the membership.
Bismarck, Jan. 21.—The day in the
legislature was devoted to the passage
of bills of minor importance. One of
the bills passed by the house was for
a constitutional amendment to in
crease the term of supreme court
judges to ten years. The bill to do
away with terms of the supreme court
at Fargo and Grand Forks was favor
ably reported by the senate committee
today and will probably pass both
An invitation was extended by both
houses to Dr. Grassick of Grand
Forks, state health officer, and Dr.
Ruediger of the state health labora
tory to address the two houses on the
subjects of tuberculosis and public
health. All interest tonight is cen
tered upon the probable outcome of
the Tuttle-Storey contest, which is
made a special order for the house
tomorrow afternoon. The houses will
be closely divided on the'question, and
it is expected that the majority for
either contestant or contestee will not
be over two or three votes.
A bill presented to the house today
calls for the abolition of the live stock
sanitary board and the reinstatement
of the old system of district veteri
naries. Another bill calls for the re
moval of all telephone and telegraph
poles from private lands and their
erection upon section lines.

A decision is expected from the

revenues of the state 'and will affect
the appropriations that can be made
by the legislature to the extent of
about a quarter of a million dollars.
The case is that involving the law
passed two years ago requiring coun
ties to pay flOO annually for the care
of insane patients at the state hospi
tal and imbeciles at the state school

counties have refused to pay the
charge and the whole sum that has
been paid in is something like $150,
If the decision goes against the
state a good share of this sum will
have to be refunded and the state will
in addition have to find revenues to
compensate for this failure of revenue
to the state hospital. The decision is
awaited with great interest by repre
sentatives of state institutions whose
appropriations will depend to some ex
tent upon the outcome of the case.
The conference committee on the

Trait blue-black like an enormous rich blueberry in looks and
taste. Unsurpassed for eating raw, cooked, canned or preserved,
in any form. The greatest garden fruit ever introduced and
equally valuable In hot, dry, cold or wet climates. Easiest plant in
the world to grow, succeeding anywhere and yielding great masses
of rich fruit all summer and fall—and all winter in pots—(As a pot
plant It is both ornamental and useful). The greatest boon to the
family garden ever known. Everybody can and will grow it.
Luther Burbank, of California, the world famous hybridizer,
originated this new fruit and turned it over to me to introduce. He
says of it: "This absolutely new berry plant is of great interest
and Value as it bears the most delicious, wholesome and healthful
berries in utmost profusion and always comes true from seed."
