INTERESTING HAPPENINGS AT THE STATE CAPITAL That O. T. Rishoff, former head of the Publishers National Service Bu reau, has the Townley newspaper combine in North Dakota stepping sideways that his recent interview given a representative of the Capitol News Bureau of the North Dakota Press Association to the effect that Brinton must go and that those who are steering the newspaper graft for. Brinton and Townley in North Da kota have been bumping their ships on rocks and reefs of financial dis aster, seems evident from the storm of denials which has been aroused. The Capitol News Bureau will in its own good time make public an affidavit of the man to whom Rishoff gave the interview. Meanwhile the league leaders are endeavoring to counteract the statement that the or ganization in North Dakota was not, in effect, giving the farmers a square deal. Some of the denials published in Minnesota have intimated that league papers everywhere were at tacked. The Rishoff statement was not aimed at the Minnesota league newspaper condition, but solely at the North Dakota grab scandal. In the so-called denial of Rishoff that such ail interview was given, he stated that he had given no in terview to the representatives of the Beach Advance or the Wilton News, and cited the names of the two pub lications. No denial was made that Rishoff had given an interview to a representative of the- Capitol News Bureau, nor was any denial made 'that he had resigned his post as chief of the Non-Partisan league news paper bureau, nor were the facts as set forth in the interview denied. However, the interview has stirred up things generally. League news papers in North Dakota, bought and secured by farmers notes, have been having hard sledding, managers of the Brinton combine have been hav ing hard work getting payments, and five league editors have resigned their posts, most notably being J. Bernard Smith of the Grant County "Leader, Carson, who declared he could not be 10o per cent American, Spring Winter ©1920 A, Fine, Dark Usual Color Pale Black Short Narrow Broad 20.00 14J00 1050 ship this bundle to'SHUBERT too The Highest Prices Ever Known That's What You' 11 Get from "SHUBERT" Wl WANT 'EM NOW—AND WILL PAY THE PRICE TO GET *EM I N?lEXTRA LARGE N?I LARGE I N?IMEDIUM l*N9f SMALL I' N9 2 1 lurnt TO tvtuoc emu* TO 6KU FN IC N?l EXTRA LARGE KTR« TO AVERAGE N?l LARGE CXTftA TO AVfRAOC to 16.00 to 12.00 to 8.50 and edit a paper of canned editorial of bolshevistic characteristics.. One of the latest is Harry N. Bran dall, for some months editor of the Wells County Free Press, Pessen den. He quit the league and is now editing a paper at Fairfield, Iowa. In a recent issue of his Iowa paper he sums up the North Dakota con dition as follows: "There are 53 league newspapers in the State of North Dakota. Three of these are owned solely by farmers corporations and are under no obli gations to the league or any of its leaders. The remaining 50 are owned jointly by farmer corporations and the league and are controlled wholly by league headquarters. "And there lies the danger. "The North Dakota farmer is not a Socialist, nor an Anarchist, nor a Bolshevik, although he jokingly re fers to himself as the latter. He will also permit you to call him one, but, as Owen Wister's story, "The Virginian," you must smile when you use the word. But if the league farmer is not one of these he is blindly following lead ers who are. The leading league organ of the state is the Fargo Cour ier-News, a daily newspaper. Far from confining itself to the original purpose and plans of the league it is now filling its columns with radi cal rot of a most vicious type, matter which is as near sedition as may be without breaking the bounds. It has taken \ip the cause of union la bor, of the Russian Bolshevik and soviet, of every petty revolution that starts anywhere in the world. It almost daily offers defense of Emma Goldman, Victor Berger, the I. W. W. and others of that ilk. It some what subtly, but none the less plain ly opposes the American Legion and openly defends the I. W. W. who caused the deaths of the soldiers in the American Legion parade ^t Cen tralia, Wash. "And the vicious matter which ap pears in the Courier-News is the same, rewritten, which is sent out to all of the league newspapers of the state. The editor of tho^r I'p^spa pers are mere figure heads and must use the stuff which is sent them or lose their jobs.

C. F. Husome retires in favor of Ralph Valent, who has been his popular assistant the past six months. We do not know Mr. Husome's future plans but where ever he may go the good wishes of his many friends in the community will go with him. He and his family have made many warm friends in the community in the few years they have resided here. Mr. Husome has been especially pro minent in musical circles as a violin ist and clarinet player and as leader in orchestra and band organizations. Mrs. Husome has presided at the pi ano in the dance orchestra and Miss Winnifred shows great promise of developing into a pianist of ability. Robt. Walker will take possession of the Billiard Hall the first of March having bought out C. E. Huggins who has been proprietor the past few months. Mr. Walker will move the business to the building formerly occupied by the Ward Farms Co., which will be remodeled for the new occupant. He expects his new quart ers to be ready about the 20th of March. Ferd. Grams is making prepara tions to open up a large stock of gen eral merchandise in his building on the corner of Steele Ave. and 1st St as soon as the billiard tables are re moved. He intends to put a full basement under the building and also construct a concrete warehouse Work on excavating will start as soon as the frost is out of the ground HOW SHALL \VE VOTE ON THE CIGARETTE LAW ON MARCH 10 A questionaire sent to the Super intendents and principals of 142 town and city schools of North Da kota asking information about cig arette smoking by their pupils and its effect upon their ..education has revealed some startling and appal ling conditions. Returns have been received from the heads of 90 schools and here are some of the results: 1. Is smoking of cigarettes by pu pils a hindrance to their education Educators answer—84 Yes, 1 No, 1 Do not know, 4 Blank. Total 90. 2. What percent of the boys over 12 years old in your school smoke? One answers 85, another 80, 5 ans wer 75, 10 answer 50. Of the 68 educators who answered the average Socialistic crowd are surely and swiftly entangling these farmers in a mesh from which they will not es cape. The political pendulum of North Dakota has stoung to the fur thermost point of its arc and lost all the momentum of its movement: it is now motionless and the law of gravitation demands that it return to its axis. "Townley unquestionably is not as strong in the state now as. in the past. He has become drunken with power and assumed a form of dicta torship over the state, an autocracy more vicius and dangerus than ever Europe boasted. Clothed in a little brief authority, Townley has exacted tribute and driven his vassals as no barbarian potentate ever conceived of doing." Exclusion of evidence by the court in refusing to allow counsel for the defendant to introduce testimony to the effect that plaintiff and plain tiff's family had been guilty of per jury in a bankruptcy case, is the one ground on which three Judges of the supreme court, Bronson, Robinson and Grace, have reversed a prior de cision and ordered a re-opening of the famous "Sleeping Beauty" dam age suit at Fargo. Amanda Larson, daughter of the keeper of It rooming tenament, went down a back stairway some four years ago and the high wind blew a part of a brick wall upon her. She sued Mrs. Clara B. Schmidt-Russel, owner of the building, for damages, claiming to be totally paralyzed and permanently crippled, and secured a verdict of $25,000 which was af firmed by the supreme court- by a three to two decision, Christianson, Birdzell and Grace concurring, and Bronson and Robinson dissenting. Judge Robinson, in his dissent, dubbed Amanda Larson the "Sleep ing Beauty," dissenting on the grounds that examination of the young woman revealed her to be physically perfect, although alleged to have been bedridden for four years The case has been ordered up for Hope Bunxttt number was 2S per cent. 3. What per cent of boys under 12 years of age smoke cigarettes? Several answered 25 per cent and in some cases the per cent was even higher. 43 of the 90 said boys under 12 were smoking in their school and the average was 11 per cent. 4. Do cigarette smokers graduate at the head of their class? 80 ed ucators said, No. 5. What per cent are able to grad uate at all? Quite a number of the educators answered "Not any." Oth ers say that a little better than one third are able to graduate. G. Generally are parents for or against their children smoking cig arettes? Answers: 76 against, 11 indifferent, 3 blank, total 90. 1 believe men who think are going to vote "No" on March 16th. REV. G. E. MARTIN.

Appeal was made Monday, Febru ary 16th, to the supreme court from the decision of Judge W. C. Craw ford of Dickinson,who in Stark coun ty district court last week declared Section 188 (The Brinton Grab Act) of the North Dakota statutes to be unconstitutional. It is hoped to get an early hear ing on this before the supreme court. The grounds on which Judge Craw ford held the law to be unconsti tutional and as presented by Attor ney J. F. Sullivan in behalf of the Grant county commissioners and the North Dakota Press Association were as follows: 1. That said chapter 188 of the laws of 1919 is unconstitutional and void insofar as it attempts to dele gate to said state publication and printing commission the power to designate official newspapers for the respective counties of the state, be cause 2. The title to said chapter 188 is not broad enough to cover the subject of designation of official county newspapers and is therefore void as to such designation under section 60 of the state constitution. And said chapter 188 of the laws of 1919 contains more than one sub ject, and the subject of designation of official county newspapers not be ing mentioned in the title is void as to such designation. 3. Said chapter 188 of the ses sion laws of 1919 is void as to the designation of official county news paper for said chapter was so altered and amended in its passage thru the senate as to change its original pur pose and is therefore void under section 58 of the state constitution. 4. That said chapter 188 of the laws of 1919.1s unconstitutional and void insofar as it pertains to the designation of official county news papers, for the reason that it is in controvention of the state consti- (Continued on last page) L. -*W-1 i.-1 i-kC-n mtS** Vt 5'• I'.WJlV WtM^ru-xri-i A.
