.§ 4 |fI 'rj 't, if im t- $18.00 Hats at $9.00 $6.00 Hats at EMMONS COUKTY RECORD BY D. R. STREETER. lint tin, Sorth Uakotu PIONEER PAPER OF THE COUNTY. The Record is entered at the Linton Post Alee aeooud-cian matter. Ion the first time, the state land commissioner will this fall offer for sale some of the state Kchoo! and in .stitution lands situated in Kmmons county. This is an item of good news to every taxpayer in the county, for tlio reasons that the sale will enable those who own land adjoining the state sections—and who have for many a jear looked with longing eyes upon all or a part of the commonwealth's section near by--a chance to compete at public auction for the possession •..of the land, and will also probably be the means of putting a considerable quantity of additional acreage on the ax-books. Those who want a certain tract included in the list to be offered should at once send a description of the land to the county auditor. Else where in this issue will be found a local article giving tiie terms of sale as provided by statute. ir is amusing to hear the .cii Km ks Herald sing the praises c, ocraiii: Governor Burke. And publican (Jovernor Sarles, who the state one of the best business ad ln ist rations it ever had, received •nothing but harsh criticism from the Heiakl. The present democratic gov ernor, wliouithe so-called lepublican Jh'iaUl helped to elect, goes about, the Male making speeches in which he lajs great stiess on the faci thai all laws ought to be enforced. And yet exeiybody knows that no laws of any Kind, except those against actions I !ial ate lecgnized as crimes by civil i/.ed people everywhere, can tie rigidly .•••iiluiced in communities where a large nia.ioiii) of the population ale opposed I" lh. in and believe them to be an ...outiage upon the pcisnnal rights of ••the citizens, (jovernor Sarles wanted llie anti tiust laws enforced against tb- printing combine of which the Herald publisher was the organizer, and in his message to the legislature called attention to the matter. There "••was nothing done, and there will be :. nothing done regarding the steal un less iov. Burke should see til to have lie attorney ireneral irct as busy over I hat outrageous violation of the law, by which the people of the state were mulcted in a large sum, as he is busy in making political capital for himself along Ihirke lines by telling all over .••the state, wherever lie can get a chance speak, what great things he is doing in legard lo the enforcement of the law not all the laws, mind you, but •thai particular statute that dema gogies consider most capable or being worked in an effort, to secure votes for their le.-election. There must be a peculiar lot of people in the Grand Korks country, if they follow the Her ald as a moral mentor and guide---with chatges of numerous acts of dishonesty and giatl against its publisher, which lie dch-s not deny, ami whieli he cannot, deny. $3.00 Wash Goods Nowhere is Llieic shown as Ur»fe and choice a variety of summer wash fabrics.

One of the inostencouraging features of direct legislation is the unanimity of its approval by those who have tried it and become familiar with its work ings in practice. Here is what Xuma Droc. ex-president of the Swiss repub lic lias to say about it: "I'nder the influence of the referen dum a profound change has cotne over the spirit both of parliament and peo ple. The idea of employer and em ployed. of sender and sent, which lies at the root of the representative sys tem, becomes an absolute reality. The people have generally shown them selves wiser than the meddling pol iticians, who have tried to draw them into systematic opposition. They have more than once given the agitator to understand that he has no chance with them. The net result has been a great tranquilizing or public life. When the ballot has pronounced, ev erybody accepts the result." In tiie Pacific Monthly for May, Lute reae expresses himself as follows: "Oregon complacently confronts the pessimists of the republic with start ing statements somewhat as follows: "If our representatives do not repre sent us, we have power to force them to do so. "We can reject any law that we don want, or ourselves enact any law that we do want. "We have knocked out Ijoss and ma chine. "We have just elected two United States senators in twenty minutes without 'boodle or loo%e or even a cigar,' and our legislature has just completed a session of extraordinary activity, untainted by any charge of corruption. "All of which, it may be acknowl edged, indicates a condition of politi cal well-being that justilies felicita tion." Hon. W. S. U'Beti, of Oregon, writes in part us follows: "The individual voter realizes his power and feels his responsibility as a citizen in all matters of state and lo cal government in a far greater degree than was possible under the purely representative system. This is shown by the very large vote oil measures— fiuin sixty-nine to eighty-seven per cent oi the whole number voting for officers. Kach measure has been dis cussed and decided on its merits with out any sign ()r 8e lie rics in 19c party prejudice. This is equally true of charter amendments and city ordinances. The people have shown excellent judgment in the approval and rejec tion of the measures submitted. Or the thirteen laws and amendments to the constitution submitted since ltt02 they have approved nine and rejected four. The secretary of stale mails to every voter a pamphlet containing a copy or all measures on which he is to vole, and of he arguments and the lea.soiis for and against, th»* same as snmi omMCE $15.00 Hats at $7.50 $5.00 Hats at presented by tiie advocates and oppo nents of each measure. The printing and paper for the arguments must be paid by the party presenting the same. "All measures that have been pro posed by initiative petitions have had very careful preparation, and none of tlieui has been declared unconstitu tional by the courts on any point. There have been no freak proposals, nor anything to reflect on the dignity and common sense of the voters. The limitation on the law-making power of the legislature has so completely removed temptation from the legis lators that there were very few charges of corruption againt the mem bers in 1903 and 1905, and none at all in 1907." School Lands to Be Sold. State Land Commissioner Hegge has informed Auditor Pitts that a sale of state school and institution lands in Emmons county will be made at Linton some time in the fall, due no tice of which will be made by publica tion. Mr. Hegge also asks that those who have in mind school tracts on which they wish to bid inform the auditor at once, as it will be necessary to take action soon in order to have all the legal preliminaries of the sale arranged in time. If there is any school land that you have a wish to possess and are willing to pay at least 910 an acre therefor, send a description of it at once to Major Pitts, as the list is required by Mr. Hegge not later than the 20th of July. Under the law, no land can be sold for less than 910 per acre, and, as it is sold at auction, some of it will undoubtedly bring more. Section 171 of tiie Political Code provides tiie terms upon which school lands shall be sold, as follows: "Tiie purchaser shall pay one-tifth of the price in cash at the time of sale and the remaining four-fifths as fol lows: One-tifth in live years, one-tifth in ten years, one-liftli in IIfteen years and une-tiftti in twenty years, with interest at six per cent per annum on all the unpaid principal, annually in advance. The highest bidder for any offered tract shall b2 declared the purchaser thereor, and shall imme diately pay over to the counly treas urer the amount or one-tifth of the purchase price, as specified in tiie terms of sale. In case the purchaser fails to pay the amount so required to he paid at tiie time of such sale, such commissioner, or whoever may be con ducting tiie sale, shall immediately re offer such lands for sale but no bids shall be received from the person so failing to pay as aforesaid and the person refusing or neglecting to make such payment shall forfeit the sum of $100 for each tract so purchased by him.

In these days of high standards, the manufacturer who would retain his trade must take every care in the manufacture of his product, as people demand quality more than cheapness. This has long been appreciated by the Winchester Repeating Arms Co., of New Haven, Conn., and is apparent in the high quality of their smokeless powder shot-shells, "Leader" and "Repeater." During the last year, the most important winnings were made witli these shells at the traps, including four of the five big tourna ments given by the Interstate Asso ciation, which were the largest tour naments in the country. The most noted expert shots use these shells ex clusively. "Leader" and "Repeater"' shells are made in a thoroughly scien tific manner by the most approved and perfect machinery, and hence absolute uniformity of manufacture and load ing are obtained, the best loads for different kinds or shooting being pre viously determined by exhaustive tests and experiments. The Winchester catalogue, which is mailed free, gives a great variety of loads, as well as de scribes the entire Winchester product. It will interest every sportsman. Estray—Qelding. About June 1st, from the town of Streeter, N.
