WEDNESDAY'S papers brought the
welcome news that the strike on the
Great Northern, was settled after
eighteen days of a tie-up, a large loss
of wages to the men, an Immense ex
pense to the company and Incidental
ly entailing a great inconvenience
and expense to the general public.
The public generally, however, as far
as they could understand the differ
ences between the men and the cor
poration, sympathised with the men,
and will be glad to know that 'the
men were the victors and that .Mr.
Hill had to acknowledge their claims,

away from Washington, that there

LIMSHATI Grand Concert Company
appeared in Kittson hail Wednesday
evening. Owing to the prevailing
rain the attendance was not as large
as it otherwise would have been. The
concert throughout was a treat. Sjlg.
Libcratl, who has few rivals on the
cornet in this country and Europe,
gave some very fine selections. In
each case he was called back, and rc'
sponded liberally. Mr. Ilenshaw, has
a soft strong tenor voice, will trained
His selections were all or the angcli
cal kind, which did not at all reflect
on his taste. Miss Massuger, pianist,
is very good. Miss Laird has a well
trained voice, and acts the characters
of selections well.
TIIK steam tug, Lsdy tSilen, or Win
nipeg, came on Sunday, and proceed
ed to a point, twenty-eight miles
above here, near Draytofi, where she
took in low a barge, which was blown
ashore while in tow of the same boat
during the high water last spring.
The Lady Ellen returned on Monday
afternoon on her wav to Winnipeg
where the barge will be used to trans
port Wood from near the mouth or the
Bed. River to Winnipeg. The Lady
Ellen is the property of the Booth
Packing Co. and her usual work is the
collect Ion of iisli on Lake Winnipeg
from various fishing stations for that
company. The tooting of the whistle
sounded like old times and brought a
large crowd or Sunday sight seers to
the river bank.
TIIK main abutment or support to
the bridge on the South Pembina
side, is iu a very dangerous position
cause is a landslide of the river bank,
extending back seventy five or a hund
red feet from the water, beginning at
the house of Charles O'llara. The
bank has dropped rivcrward about a
foot and carried the pile foundation
bodily, and apparently otherwise uti'
disturbed, about the same distance
towards the center or the river, which
gfrea the upper supports, from the
(fling to the bridge a dangerous angle,
it will take some pretty good engineer
lug to get the foundation secure
again, and there is no telling when
the land slide will stop. The bridge
cost about 97000 and was built Jointly
bv the township and county.
LASTSaturday the reporter Inter
viewed the assessors on the subject or
the amount of seeding done. From
the reports,he found that Crystal and
the southwestern portion of the coun
ty were well advanced, at that time
some farmers having as high as 100
acres sown. From one half to two
thirds of the wheat in these localities
seemed to be in. Cavalier township
had about one third of its seed sown.
From the rest of the assessors present
the report was S'ouly started." The
weather during this week while not
altogether favorable has on the whole
been drying up the ground and in the
drier localities, the farmers have been
busy seeding under the most favora
ble circumstances, not more than one
third or one half of the total wheat
area will be seeded by Saturday night.
The wet season has assured a good
start for grass and the pastures will
be ready for stock in ten days.
NOTWITHSTANDING the fact that St.

Deacon is so proud, and which he has
already dedicated to a nightly pro

upon Its facade, been christened "Mc
Kinley Rail." Evil minded people
suggest that this Is another scheme
of Brother Deacon to retain posses
sion of the poet office under the ad
ministration of President McKinley,
similar to the attempt to change the
authorship of the Era*s motto
"Tell the truth" from Cleveland to
Harrison. But we know that Brother
Deacon was Imposed up on bv practi
cal jokers in the latter case, and we
do not believe him guilty of placing

p'rom the South,
The following is an extract from a
communication that appeared iu the
"'"argo Forum Saturday, which echoes
the sentiment of many like articles
in the slate press at the present-time:
"Wii.it right had the so-called com
mittee lo unseal one ot its members
ind rule said member out or the re
publican.partv'/ His not the judge
or its own members nor has it control
over the political actions of any indi
vidual member. The member is not
responsible to the committee, but to
the people of his district who placed
him there to represent them, and who
can say but the people of the first le
gislative district themselves whether
or not he fitly represented their in
terests and wishes in voting for Sena
tor Roach?
What was the animus that promp
ted the action of the committee in
"expelling" Senator LaMourc while
they "Itcsolved to deplore" the action
of the other eighteen members or
the third legislative assembly who at
various times voted tor democratic
senatorial candidates with the hope
or electing? Theaniinus is evident,
the conclusion rar-rctched. LaMourc
has always been a stumbling block in
the way of ccrtain self-asserted lead
ers who have reached positions far
above and beyond their deserts or
ability to fill, and tearing that the
rellection ot the calcium light of ex
perience through which ud was wont
to view their mental mediocrity
might serve to waken up the rank ant*,
file to the needs of better and u\oi-e
suitable material in which tn place
Its trust, they determine', on this
course in the hope that anew lease of
power would be grunted them before
the awakening which mustcouie, now
that the contrast was su plainly visi
ble, where, brains, not "cheek" is at
work to secure favorable state legisla
tion.
If I am not mistaken in the other
eighteen fellows they will not quietly
take the spanking given them by the
committee, but the very tif«t sun-,
shiny day when everything Is looking
most lovely, you w*ll find them oil
swimmii'g again. To give up now is
to, tacitly admit that the methods
pursued by the "Uncrowned King"
ate the only ones that can be pursued
with safety by the Republican nartv
of this state.

is unique to say tbe least. He can af
