In case of the retirement of Hil dreth, there will be, it i® said, an in teresting scramble for the appoint ment as it is known that a number of prominent attorneys in the state con sider themselves available for the job. No names have as yet been connected with the place, however, and who the lucky man will be may remain a matter of speculation for some little time. The bill creating an associate Fed eral Judgeship for the district of North Dakota, a matter that seems tat have created quite a furore in the state, will probably be reported out q£ the House Committee on the Ju diciary some time this week, as Chair man Volstead expects to report the bill to the House on Tuesday accord ing to tentative plans. This may me^n that the bill will not receive final ac tion by the House for perhaps a month. A vast amount of legislative matter is now on the legislative cal endar, much of it considered exceed singly important, and the judicial bill will probably have to await its regu lar turn. A number of similar meas ures affecting other states are also irf the House. According to those familiar with legislative proceedure, bilk of this character are not likely to be reported under a special rule and considering the legislative situa tion it is not believed that one will be established Jin i«1 .£«& The Pioneer Exnress.

WASHINGTON NEWS LEfTTEfc. :|(Exclusive to the Pioneer Express) Vt The political pot is simmering mer rily with! piluirus falling and at least one official head threatened in the «. Federal realignment in North Dakota. Gunder Olson, Republican National 'Committeeman, and long prominent in North Dakota politics, has been nominated by President Harding as Collector of Internal Revenue for the state. The recommendation has gone to the Senate for confirmation and it is believed that this 'Will come without friction. Olson has been considered the leading candidate for the position for some time. At the same time from the circles of officialdom has come the rumor that M. A. Hildreth, United States District Attorney for North Dakota, has been requested to turn in his resignation by Attorney General Daugherty.. Such rumors have been Save revalent for several days', but they acquired considerable persist ency of late. So far as is known, no reason for the request has been given, flints to the contrary notwithstand ing. Mr. Hfldteth, a Fargo attorney, it will be~ recalled, was appointed to the position he now holds by Presi dent Wilson. His term will not ex- pire until some time next year, but sals for the furnishing of books used if present gossip has foundation, his by county officers for the year end tenure of office miay end before that ing May 1st, 1922. this instance. Speculation is still rife as to whom the new judgeship will go. Various candidates have been mentioned in this column during the past two weeks and the situation in this re gard remains unchanged. Andrew Miller, of Bismarck, former attorney general of the state, and Seth Rich ardson, Non Partisan candidate for the state supreme court in the last general election, continue to be con sidered candidates of potential strength by many, people interested in the matter but still others persist jers in believing that the appointment will I e.

Action was delayed a few days last week owing to the adjourn ment of the two houses out of respect to the late Chief Justice of the Su- Con- Pfeme Court, Douglas White, 'greasman George H. Young, second district, author of the measure, states that he is confident that the act will be of material benefit to the farmers of the country. A bill proposing the modification of the grades for spring wheat as prescribed by'the Secretary of Agri culture has been introduced by Hal vor Steenerson of Crookston, repre sentative for the ninth district, Min nesota^ This is a matter that has provoked considerable agitation for tne past two years and it is hoped by Mr. Steenerson and others interested in the wheat grading question that the bill may be passed and thus settle a controversy that has been in exist ence since the passage of the national grain grading act. On the other side of Capitol Hill the Senate Committee on Agriculture has ordered a favorable report on the Lenroot Small resolution author izing a general survey of agriculture and related matters by ajoint con gressional commission. The resolu Al ttti ajoint con Tb in was introduced in the-Senate by Viroot, Republican, of Wisconsin. The War Finance Corporation, re established during the last CongTMS by the Gronna resolution, would be made available to live stock growers under an amendment to the act offer Ad by Senator Stanfield, of Oregon.

The request was signed by Secretary Montgomery of the association, Usher L. Burdick, Sureau, resident of the North Dakota Farm and many others interested in the state fair. Mr. Wallace expressed great inter est in the proposal and assured Con gressman Burtness and the commit tee that he would'attend the fair if official business at that time permits him to do so. Definite announcement regarding this may be possible a little later. It is considered by those interested in agriculture that a visit by Mr. Wal lace to the state 'upon such an. occa sion would be of utmost importance, The new secretary is a lifelong stu dent of the subject and for him to view at first hand many of the things he would see at the state fair might tend to establish a better understand ing between official Washington and the growers of the Northwest —v an understanding that has not always existed heretofore.
