THE PRIMARY BILL.
The progress of the Sharp primary
bill in the legislature has so far been
quite amusing. It was "heralded" in the
earlier part of the session as having a
large majority in its favor in the House,
that such a majority had "signed up," a
big committee was formed to keep up
the organized forces in its favor, certain
4ther legislation was to be blocked until
the primary l?w was safely passed, and
the only possible dane^r of defeat lay
among the old political fossils that com
pose the Senate, .who for some dire
selfish purposes of their own were bent
on defeating the will of the people.
Well—well—well, but how different
the thing has turned out. Instead of
bringing the bill up first in the House, it
-came up in the Senate and with very
little criticism or objection it passed that
body almost unanimously, only four vot
ing against it, and they of the younger
element.
And now it is before the House—and
it is re-"heralded" that it has hard sled
ding before it. That "its enemies" will
Seek to make many amendments so that
it will have to go back to the benate and
there be killed by the same old fossils
ihat voted so unan imou&ly for its passage,
Isn't itkind of tunny Why, according
to tie claim at the first, there ought not
to be any great number of people in the
bouse that would want to amepd, and if
they did, with the overwhelming major
•fly against thran, how in the dickens can
they get in the proposed amendments
And then to see those prim and solemn
senators, deliben{tely,- with malice

good.. It is easy to agree on that. But
primary law in the concrete, primary
law in form, primary law in practice,
these are matters of very many and diffi
cult phases. It is a simple matter to find
flaws in our present election laws, but
when in an effort to improve those laws
it is attempted to practically abolish all
the old laws, to entirely change the prin
ciples and system that have governed
the voter for a hundred years, to add
verv large number of necessarily cum
bersome provisions, it is no easy task
for the legislator, no matter how honest
or able he may be.
If the legislators at Bismarck this win
ter do pass a primary law, it will be a
law that a very small minority will favor
in all its provisions. It will be a law in
the nature of a compromise. That it will
be very imperfect is as certain as that
human nature is imperfect.
Law may assist but cannot make vot
ers intelligent or interested. Legislators
cannot foresee alt the practical results of
a law that must embrace so many par-'
ticulars. Primary law is certain to be a
failure in many respects we hope that it
may at least be somewhat of a success,
as the people seem to think they want it.
For the latter reason we believe if the
House can agree on any kind'of reason
able primary law, that the senate will
agree to it—and throw the responsibility
on the members of the House.
RUSSIA, A VOLCANO.
Revolutionary symptoms are increas
ing in Russia and Austria. They may
presage a sudden and terrible turmoil in
the nenr future, or as in the past the
threatened eruption may subside for a
time below the surface.
But that the fire is there is made mani
fest by these minor explosions and the fi
nal earthquake is a certainty, unless the
autocracy that governs these states grants
more liberty to the people. In Russia)
about one-third of the people are just
waiting for a leader to take the govern?
ment in their own hands. In Ausjria
only the life of the aged emperor stands
between the government and anarchy.
The latter country is composed of many
peoples, speaking many languages, who
have no common interests to cement
them together. They area high wall of
loose stones built without mortar.
One cannot hear of the labor disturb
ances in Russia and Austria without a
shudder as to what the possible outcome
might be to thousands or millions.
In Russia such an uprising just now,
when the war in the east is yet unsettled,
might bring snch overwhelming compli
cations that the whole world including
this country, might be drawn into the
maelstrom.
It may be that the czar and his advisers
may finally see the rising tide and
realize the impossibility of stopping it,
and may instead take means to meet it
and float with the current by granting
the people the privileges, at least in part,
that they demand. Otherwise, the end
is in sight, but what the end may bring
forth for the world is known to none.
We only know that the struggle will
mean great human sacrifice in its pro
gress, and that humanity at large will
get the benefit in the end, but at terrible
cost. 7-vV-

The jury having been secured, the
trial began on Wednesday mor ing.
As stated last week, the present testi
mony in the trial will be almost the same
as that already reported in the HartzeU
trial. Mr. Bascom was included jointly
in the "information" with Hartzell and
charged with murder in the first degree, A souvenir of this city
but asked for a separate trial. He was1
present at the time'of the shooting and
the state accuses him of "aiding and.
abetting" Harlzell, though the latter did
the shooting.
Owing to illness Attorney Brynjolfson
found it necessary to withdraw from the
case, and Attorney W. H. Depuy of
Grafton arrfved and took his place as
the leading counsel for (hestate Wednes

J. O. Ajtr Co., Lowell,
At Pembina I found the Hartzell mur
der trial from Langdon to be the center
of public interest and the city filled with
witnesses in the case. I met the elder
Harlzell and had a short conversation
with him. Many of those here sympa
thize with him in this trouble.
is now being
sold here, an alluminum book mark,
containing a photo of the first post-office,
a log cabin of two rooms, built by Chas.
Cavileer in the early 90's. In front of the
cabin stands a Red river cart, the ireight
car of that day, and beside it Jud La
Moure, now senator and state leader N.
E. Nelson, collector of customs Chas.
Cavileer, his wife and daughter W. H.
Moorhead, known as "High Water
Bill" and a few others. This cabin was
torn down in 1681 In this cabin shortly
before it was torn down a tragedy oc
curred when two were killed, a desper
ado from Texas and a detective. The
detective and desperado shot at each
other, both shots taking effect, the de
tective dying almost instantly and the
desperado in a few minutes. The des
perado was wanted in Texas for murder
and had been followed many miles by
tne detectiv^who was about to arrest
him when the fatal shooting occurred.
Howard Hancock, formerly of Oakes
and a Soo train man is now employed on
the N. P. and is working out of Grand
Folks and Pembina.
When in Pembina I called at the U. S.
customs office to visit with the collector,
Mr. Nelson but found that he was at
home sick. However I met Robert
Morrison his deputy and had a pleasant
visit with him. In the course of his con
versation he stated that the collections
for this slate amounted to about $10,000
a month and the revenue taken from
confiscated property taken from smugg
lers is surprisingly large, about $10,000 a
year. During the past year there has
^t been considerable wheat smuggled ov^r
the line on account of tlfe price in this
1
state bemg'much higher than in the Can
adian markets. In many of these instan
ces the farmer has lost his team, wagon
and grain, the same being confiscated by
the customs officer.
In most of the towns in this section
there are many who are planning to en
gage in business in the towes that are
to be "established on the new Soo exten
sion from Thief River Falls to Kenmare.
The prospect now is that the new towns
will quickly build up with the usual bus
iness houses, etc. Most of the country
through this line will pass is good and
well settled. In some instances there
are towns on the G. N. branches that
will lose a few business firms that will
move their place of business to one of
the new towns, but most of them are
new enterprises.

Session Laws.
The present session of the legislature
promises to make a lot of trouble for the
1899 code and subsequent session laws
Up to date more bills have been intro
duced than any session of the past. If
you do not get a copy of the new meas
ures, you will not know what is the law,
and you know that ignorance of the law
does not excuse any person. The quick
est, cheapest and best way to know the
law is to buy a copy of the "Pocket Ed
ition" of the laws. This will be printed
within a lew hours after the governor has
disposed of the last measure before him.
It will, in addition to the law contain 32
pages of North Dakota statistical matter,
which will be of interest,' we think. The
"Pocket Edition" will cost but a dollar,
and its possession may save you much
more than this. Send this sum to the
Pioneer Express, and your address, and
the one dollar will have a copy delivered
you as soon as printed.
Grave Trouble Foreseen.
It needs but little foresight, to tell,
hat when your stomach and liver are
badly afiected, grave trouble is ahead,
unless you take the proper medicine for
,. your disease, as Mrs. John A. Young, of
Their list of matched games was jciay,
N.

ralgia of the liver and stomach, my
heart was weakened, aud I could not
eat. I was very bad for along time, but
in Electric Bitters. Iv found just what I
deeded, for they quickly relieved and
cured me." Best medicine for weak
