WARD COUNTY DEMOCRATS WILL NOT
PAY FEE—THE LAW UMCONSTN
Minot, N. D„ May 25.—The
democrats of the county who are
in the field for the various county
offices commenced mandamus pro
ceedings this morning to compel
the county auditor to receive and
file their petitions and place their
names on the official ballot with
out the payment of a fee, claim
ing that the law requiring a fee is
unconstitutional. The case was
heard before Judge Goss this af
ternoon and the court held that
the law is unconstitutional and or
dered the auditor to receive the
petitions. Nearly all of the can
didates who have filed petitions
have paid the fee required under
protest, and all of the fees collect
ed by the auditor will be refunded.
SIGNS OF BUMPER CROP.
The implement men as well as
the farmers of the state, are de
lighted over the rains which have
been falling for the past few
days, and they say that it is very
timely, and will be of the greatest
benefit to the crops. While crop
conditions were very good before
the rain they have now been made
much better and there is every in
dication of a bumper crop, to be
harvested this coming fall.
Reports from over the state in
dicate that the rain has been gen
eral and in many places was heav
ier than it was here.
About all the implement men
can talk of is good crops and
they are looking forward to a
rushing business. Already the
effects of the good prospects can
be felt in the city and many or
ders are being tilled on the strength
of these prospects. Much of the
wheat is well up now. Trav
eling salesmen who cover the
state say that in sections the
wheat is three inches high and
looking fine. There is a good
even stand and it is very clean as
a usual thing.
I hereby announce my with
drawal from the race for the nom
ination for Sheriff and wish to
thank my friends for their sup
port. I have learned many valu
able lessons in human nature and
gained some faithful friends
among thejiew population of Wil
liams county, so I feel aryply re
paid for the effort thus far made.

R. R. EMPLOYES
INTERSTATE COMMERCE COMMISSION
MAKES RULES REGARDING PASSES
Notice of a ruling by the inter
state commerce commission which
is of interest to railroad employes
all over the country has been re
ceived at the local railroad offices.
For some time it has been a ques
tion whether or not railroad em
ployes who were on a leave of ab
sence and not drawing salaries
from the railroads at the time
could legally be given passes.
The question was brought be
fore the. commission, which has
promulgated the following ruling:
''Any employe who has not
been suspended or dismissed from
the service, but who is on leave of
absence for sixty days and is still
carried on the roll of employes of
the carrier as an employe, -and
as such may lawfully be given
The new ruling will enable rail
road employes and their families
to enjoy vacations of considerable
length and still travel free.
The commission has also ruled
that the "hours of service law"
applies to electric transit compan
ies during an interstate business,
as well as to regular railroads.
What looked like an attempt at
robbery was committed at the G.
M. Hedderick & Co. store last
Thursday night. The would be
robbers cut a hole in one of the
large glass windows in front of the
store large enough for a man to
crawl through, but were frustrat
ed by night Policeman Thomas
Henneghan. They were fright
ened away before they succeeded
in gaining entrance.

the field and the consensus of
opinion was that Overson was the
logical candidate. A number of
Mr. Overson's friends have been
urging him to get into the race
but it was not until«after this
meeting that he consented to run.
Mr. Overson has been a resident
of Williston for a good many
years. He is well known in this

Shoes For Women
apparel is nearly always light apparel. And so
it with shoes. Every "Queen Quality" Shoe is
as light as the service for which it is intended will permit.
A woman's shoe should be light in weight and flexible to
the foot to enable her to walk in an easy, graceful manner.
This is one of the especial charms that has made "Queen
Qyality** Shoes so popular. They combine lightness with
strength. We only ask the favor of fitting you with one of the
many fashionable and beautiful Oxfords we have c.i display.
