WILL SUPPORT THE BILL
We notice that several papers make
the statement and comment edttorially
to the effect that Senator McCumber
will oppose the railroad rate bill. The
following extract from the Congressional
Record does not seem as though these
editors were working on the facts of the
"Mr. Beveridge. Is it the Senator's
position, then, that not only the present
proposed law should not be enacted, but
that the existing law on the same subject
should be repealed?
Mr. McCumber. In my opinion, the
present proposed law should be enacted
with a modification. So that I may not
be misunderstood, I will state that I ex
pect to support the law which thei wis
dom or unwisdom of the Senate shall
deem to be folr the best interest of the
American people, but I think however,
it should be modified."
In Mr. McCumber's speech his propos
ed amendments seem to be founded on
the following basis which we take from

President, is absolutely necessary for the

The success of thousands of lesser and
hundreds of greater "prophets" prove
the credulity of mankind. The fable of
the "Pied Piper of Hamlin" is enacted
over and over with the children of larger
growth, and "What fooN we mortals be"
is shown by the many who follow the
delusions of self-appointed "religious"
A discussion of the psychological
reasons of the apparent weakness of the
hnman mind in reference to religious
matters might be of interest to the
philosopher but the fact, while perhaps
almost inexplicable, is yet a fact. Given
a certain quality of mind akin to hypno
tism in certain men, and such men have
no difficulty in gathering about tliem
otherwise sensible, men and women who
will believe almost anything that the
leader may say.
Another, peculiatity of these leaders
and to further show their power over
their deluded followers, is the fact that
they are able under the guise of religion
to persuade people to give up their most
cherished pessessions of family and
property. Married people part with one
another, with children, money and lands.
In fact it is one of the certainties of all
these new religions that the devotee
shall give all he has to the "prophet."
There is however in most cases, an
other peculiarity common to them all

Aug. Short, the member of the repub
lican state committee this district was at
Fargo last Friday at the meeting of the
committee. The basis of representation
for the slate convention was made and
the date and place of convention settled.
The basis of representation is to be
two delegates at large for each county
and one delegate for each 125 votes,
averaged from the highest and lowest
vote given republican state candidates.
Under this apportionment some of the
delegations from the larger counties will
be as follows:—Ward 31,Cass 31, Grand
Forks 23, Richland 19, McLean and
Walsh 17 each, Pembina, Barnes,
Bottineau and Stutsman 16, McHenry
15, Cavalier 14, Morton and Ramsey 13,
Benson, Burleigh, Trail and Wells 12.
The great immigration to the western
part of the state has made the number
of delegates from that part of the state
much larger. The place of the conven
tion is Jamestown and the time is July

Three fourths of San" Francisco in
ashes and 300,000 out of 400,000 of
citizens homeless is the summary of the
most awful catastrophe that has ever
occured on this continent. What it all
means is beyond comprehension. A
number of smaller cities have the same
record of desolation and death. The one
bright spot is the grand manifestation of
human sympathy and charity. Long be
fore the city ceased to burn, relief trains
were started at a mile a minute speed
loaded with supplies and provisions,
and millions of dollars subscribed for
relief. But the charity however great
will not pay the losses. At most it will
only help the helpless to set another
start in the world. Thousands of men
who were well-to-do a week ago, to-day
have nothing, not even clothing and
food for themselves and families.
San Francisco from its natural posi
tion on the only good harbor for hund
reds of miles of coast, will certainly- be
built up again, but the whole Pacific
region will suffer a great loss in tourist
travel and immigration for many years.
Our sympathies are with the stricken.
The letters written to the Herald by
its special correspondent from Pembina
county seem to have produced a back
action effect. The St. Thomas Times,
Neche Chrontype and the Cavalier
Chronicle editorially comment last week
to the effect that the correspondent had
misrepresented public sentiment entirely
in those localities, and a letter from
Walhalla signed by several of the prom
inent citizens of that place repudiated
the idea as given by the correspondent,
that the late city election there had any
thing to do with state or county politice
or affairs. Fort} citizens interviewed by
the Walhalla Mountaineer say the same.
The uatural result of the misrepresenta
tions will neither ben fit the Herald or
