Entered at the poat office at Pembina aa sacond
class mail matter.
The inter-Ocenn's more or less es
teemed contemporaries have attacked
the board of county [commissioners tie
cause that body awardedjthe printing «of
the tax list to this paper, payment of the
same to be made at the rates fixed by
law. The commissioners acted in ac
cordance With the advice of the states
attorney, .who held that under the law
the^gftttnty tn^t^oUect twenty cent*, for
•eacti fertft dSscHJrtiM'i^^^
each'rity lot advertised! At^raey^ifi-'
«ral Cowan holds to the same ^opinion
Having collected the lefgal rate for pub
lishing the tax list, Mr. Cowan and Mr.
MiClory both hold that it is .the intent
of[ the statute that the legal rate should
be paid for the publication.—Devil's
Lake Inter-Ocean.
The editor of the Chronotype strikes
it the root of the tree when he says, that
the {principal difficulty in the tax list let
ting is the law itself. There should be
no ambiguity in it There should be
no preference in it The price l^hould
be fixed definitely and the method of
designating papers made perfectly clear,
just as it is in the matter of appointing
the three official papers to publish pro
ceedings. We don't believe it ought to
be made a matter of bidding, bnt of ^de
finite legal rates like other, legal advertis
ing, and the commissioners have |noth
more to do than to designate. We be
Heve that is what the present law intends
to do, but it is not so clear but it gives
room for lawyers to disagree, as will be
noticed by those who read' M. Corwirft
opinion in the proceedings last week and
the opinions of States Attorney McClory,
of Devil's Lake, and Attorney General
Cowan as given by the Inter-Ocean »and
copied in yesterday's daiiy.
What were some of those remarks that
were heralded around from popocratic
stump.. to stump last year, to theeflfeft
Aat ourrafhency was so^ Bhtited and
contracted that uw cpuM do bint*
ness, and that die only hope for a return
to prosperity was through the free coin
age of silver at 16 to l?{flt is quite evi
dent to observant men that sonfe of
these popocrats were laboring under a
mistake, because by reference to the
election returns of 1896 it will be seen
that the free-coinage proposition was not
adopted, and yet here we find in the
country to-day nearly a hundred million
dollars more in circulation than there
was a year ago, and not a dollar of it
free silver. Gold alone has increased in
circulation in the last year over fifty mil
lion dollars.
The statement of Comptroller Eckels
of the United States Treasury in regard
to.thft business inqrovement throughout
the country is very encouraging. He
states that "the improvement has come
rapidly and permeases all lines of indus
try. It began with the agricultural class.
The farmers have large crops and are
getting good prices for them. The cat
tle-raisers atie benefited by a substantial
rise in the price of cattle. The same is
true with the sheep-raisers. This im
provement in agricultural earniugs has
its effect on the railroads by increasing
their earnings. It has put money into
circulation and enabled* people to pay
off their debts, and has therebv benefit
ed the,inerdiant!i."
No civic election has ever^so much in
terested the country at'large as^that now
being canvassed in Greater New York.
Two straight partyJtickets, Democratic
and Republican, |are running, while
H.-nry Geoigels a sort of popimsticm
dependent, and Seth"*L5w is a candidate,
of the Citizens Union, a sort of ''good
government" association. At this time it
looks as if the Tammany man would be
elected by the division of the other par
ties, though Henry George's candidacy
will weaken the strength oi the regular
democracy. There is hot much of pol
itical significance in the fight, except that
whichever patty triumphs,' it will give
them considerable influence in manipu
lating the New York vote£at the Inext
election. 'I:
Aluminum is one of the most abun
dant metals in nature, and yet ten years
ago the average man had never seen a
piece of the pure metal. Then it was
worth five dollars A pound. An Amer
ican solved the problem of, cheap pro
duction and to-day it is rapidly coming
into common use at a cost of production
cf about 50 cents a pound. It has some
qualities that make it very desirably for
many uses. It will not corrode,3 it is

Shortly before noon. Judge Tuthlll,
the attorneys in the case and Luetgeri
were summoned at the jury's request
and a star chamber session was held.
State's Attorney Deneen gave this ver
sion of the affair:
"Judge Tut hill inquired if the jury
had any communication to make. Juror
Harley was his feet in a jiffy and
began askiug questions. He desired
instrnctiouB ou questions of fact. Har-
to leave bttt certain
-—exclude it'eutirely—and then consider
the other evidence and up a ver
dict lrom it. This qnery exeited the
laufiLter of those who were opposed .to
Harley- and it was noticeable that nine
of the jurors laughed. Judge Tuthill
said the question was an improper one
for him to answer. 'Yon have your in
structions,' said his honor. 'Note the
reading of them. You will find that
nearly all of them contain the language
•and if"alter consideration of all the
evidence yoa find beyond a reasonable
doabt, etc.' That should be sufficient.
The conrt cannot now instruct yon
npon a question Of fact. You will re
tire to your jury room and return to
ltu ther consideration of the case.',
The Judge Hail Little to Say.
"That was all that occurred. Sev
eral of the jurors wanted to know hoW
much longer they were going to be kept
in the jury room. Judge Tuthill paid
no attention to the inquiry. Juror
Harley is the man who is holding -the
jury. He ngw has two adherents.
They, are Holabird and Behmiller, but
both of these I believe are weakening.
It looks to me now as if there would be
a disagreement. I,believe that before
Dight the jury will stand 11 to 1, and
the only man who will bring about the
disagreement will be Harley."
At 19:80 Judge Tuthill's oourt was
converted into dining room. Several
tables which during the irial had been
piled high with books, bonesand papers
were covered Igr snowy linen and the
bailiffs busied themselves "setting the
table."' Huge baskets of food and cans
o* coffee wen hoisted up in the freight
elevator and tamght into
