D.—In the face of the oft repeated promise that North Dakota taxes would be reduced, the tax bill that has been piled up by the first 100 per cent Nonpartisan league legislature is interesting. As compared with total tax col lections the last biennial period of less than $4,000,000, the state faces tax collections during the next bien nial period of $11,980,000, according to an estimate prepared by the state tax commission. The industrial program that has, been initiated is responsible for a big portion of the increase, while there also are other important factors en tering into the jump in taxes. The tax commission finds the total of senate appropriation bills passed to be $6,997,632.38; house bill No. 128, té mill levy for soldiers, estimated for the biennial period to be $1,200, 000; other house appropriation bills passed, $899,062.32; total of all ap propriation bills, $9,096,685.70. There are added to this sum $2000 in stand ing appropriation for disbarment pro ceedings, $1000 for militia grounds, and $600 for the state poultry associ ation, increasing this total to $9,100, 234.70.

This leaves to be raised by state levy or other state income, not including fees and licenses appropriated for specific purposes, $8,204,042.10. Hail Tax Additional. The hail insurance tax of 3 cents per acre on all tillable land, says the tax commission, is in the nature of a special benefit tax and is not includ ed. This will probably amount to $900,000 per annum, or a total of $1,800,000 for the biennial period. In addition to the above, interest and sinking funds must be provided to care for the outstanding state bonds, amounting to approximately $300,000 for the biennial period. Sinking and interest levies to cover the new bond issues will depend entirely on the amount of bonds issued. It is esti mated that $9,000,000 per annum would have to be provided for, and $640,000 interest annually, would amount to $1,680,000 for the biennial period, making the amount to be levied by direct taxation $11, 984,000. This Hanson Buys Cone Farm*. Ray Hanson last week bought the B. F. Cone eighty, seven miles north east of Palouse, paying $110 an acre. He will move to the farm at once. Hanson disposed of his personal prop tv at auction sale last Wednesday cl had intended going to Canada, but after some little consideration de cideded that the Palouse country would suit him best, and at once closed the deal for the farm.—Palouse Republic. ert an THE TERRIBLE TOM NOT GOING HUNGRY FOOD PRICES NOT HIGH—CARE OF ARMENIANS IS GREATEST PROBLEM CONSTANTINOPLE. — (Associat ed Press.)—Contrary to reports Tur key is well supplied with food, and, while prices are unusually high, they are much lower than those prevail ing in the Balkan states and in some other countries of Europe. The following list of current prices which the consumer is called upon to pay shows the actual condition: Flour, 26 cents a pound; potatoes, 11 cents; beans, 20 cents; meat, 50 cents, and eggs, 90 cents a dozen. Vegetables of all kinds are not only abundant, but relatively cheap. Cloth ing and shoes also may be had, but generally the prices charged are so high as to take them far beyond the purses of the poor. Hotel rates are •lower than in most European cities, and the service is as good as could be expected in a country just emerging from a long war. In order that foodstuffs may be placed within range of the poor, the American food administration is now selling white flour at ten cents a pound, which is expected to bring down other prices as far as the actual necessities are concerned. The work of the Americans is attracting wide attention and much interest. Drugs, and in fact all medicines, are very scarce and expensive. Most large centers in Turkey and Asia Minor need medical assistance. The care of a million or more des titute Armenian, Syrian and Greek refugees in the Caucasus and thru out Asia Minor presents a most seri ous problem. It is estimated that there are in these countries no less than half a million fatherless child ren whose condition demands immedi ate relief. The American committee for relief in the near east is taking up the task, but is finding that its resources are being severely taxed. Smallpox is prevalent in Constan tinople, two cases having developed in the American colony, while the Swedish minister is only now recov ering from a severe attack. Most hospitals are hard pressed for medi cines and supplies, while the short age of physicians is pronounced. Finances, too, are disturbing the Turks. The Turkish pound has de preciated, its present value being twenty per ?ent below normal, while gold is at a high premium. The ex change rates of money of most other countries also has declined, the Am erican dollar, the English pound and the Greek drachmai being the only issues which have stood firmly at par. M Kendrick Methodists 'I» Build. At a meeting of the trustees of the Methodist church, held last Monday night, it was decided to go ahead with building operations at once. Al though the contract has not been let and the plans not definitely decided upon, it was agreed to make the church a modern structùifé in every way. A full basement will be one of the features of the new building and it is quite likely that furnace heat will be supplied. It will be a credit to the town when completed. SUIFFRA6ETTES ENDORSE 1 LEAGUE OF PEACE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION AT ST. LOUIS STRONG AGAINST BOLSHEVISTS ST. LOUIS, Mo., March 28.—The National American Woman Suffrage association today adopted resolutions endorsing the league of nations and urging the United States government "to bring about prompt redress of all legitimate greivances" as a safeguard against revolution by violence. With the adoption of a long list of resolutions the convention proper practically closed its sessions, the for mal adjournment to be taken tomor row noon after a morning session of the league of women voters, com posed of delegates from presidential suffrage states. The selection of the next convention site probably will be left to the board of directors. Heading the list of resolutions was one calling upon the sixty-sixth con gress to submit the constitutional amendment for nation-wide woman suffrage to the states at the earliest possible moment. Others included: Recommendations that in the fu ture the government recognize the fitness of accepting the services of professional women in work for which their training and experience have well qualified them, it being said that women physicians and dentists were compelled to serve in the war under the French flag because their serv ices Were declined by the United States government. That congress established for the women in industrial service a per manent women's bureau in the United States department of labor with ade quate funds to continue the work. That government residence halls for women be placed in the hands of women. That congress give 'military rank to army nurses.
