.'/* ..s' Burke Writes to GtV. Citizen Reserve Bank Members Can not Be Compelled By Law But Farmers May Go To Member Banks in Other Towns. United States Treasurer Buike, in a communication to one of the Citizens of the Golden Valley who is especial ly interested in farming, respect to the recent publicity •thai has been occasioned as a jesult of the suggestion made "by Mr. Burke to the Minnea polis branch of the Federa Reserve bank of Minneapolis lias the following to say: in "I certainly hope that I was of some service in con nection with the publicity recently given to the loan ing of money to the farm ers on warehouse receipts. I understand that in some sections the bankers are re fusing to loan r-.oney. Of course, you cannot compel them to loan it. That is, you cannot compel them by 'law, but there are banks that are loaning the money and if a bank which is member of the reserve sys" tern ^refuses to loan the money under the reserve system, to the farmer, it will have no complaint if the farmers go to a bank which is ioaning money under the regulations of the Reserve Aboard. There is nothing •wrong about this. It would not be boycotting, or any thing that is wrong. The farmer goes to the member bank. The bank refuses to make 'the loan. The farm er then goes to some mem ber where they are making loan with warehouse re ceipts as security. The Lanks are advertising to make the loans in Williston, Harvey, Ryder and Rollette, and I presume in other plac" es also." All Roads Will Use Electricity St. Louis, Oct. 20.—Predic tion that all steam railroads in the United States would be el" •ectrified in the next few years, was made by M. W. Storer of New York in an address at a luncheon given to the mem bers of the American Institute of electrical engineers, which began its national convention liere. The meeting was given ov er largely to the discussion of technical subjects. Philip S Kealy of Kansas City spoke on "municipal co-operation in public utility management.' Mr. Storer, of Pittsburgh in his luncheon address said: "No railway that has been electrified has ever gone back to steam. The Pennsylvania railroad has made wonderful progress in the east in handl ing the heavy traffic at the rate of fifty to seventy miles per hour. The Norfolk & West ern has electrified the line from Bluefield to Norfolk and is handling heavy freight trains up grade at the rate of 14 miles per hour as against seven miles steam locomotive power. The same speed is maintained., in gfoing dowp grade. Bfere are'riiore wn^s going down grade than from any other cause* ElectralUsa tion eliminiates, down grade accidents. Electrification can handle any kind of traffic— 1 ast, -heavy, light or slow. "Its greatest disadvantage is the first cost. Many of the cities are now demanding the electrification of railroad ter minals. All this should be carefully investigated before insisting on its accomplish ment. Electrification will en able all railroads to reclaim all and they occupy. It means the elimination of smoke and dirt. It eliminates the expense of rolling stock lying around in the yards." THRESHING WILL SOON BE FINISHED. The past ten days of excel lent weather has made possible the gathering of a large amount of grain in the Golden Valley. It is estimated that two weeks more of good weather will enable the farmers in this section to finish operations. In spite of the unfavorable weather during the early seas on, the yields are good and a large amount of the grain is being graded No. 1. A very noticeable feature of the mar keting of grain is the large number of tractors which are put in operation for the re moval of the grain to the local terminals. It is thought tliat because of the trouble in the Balkans and the improbability of the European war coming to a close for several months that the price of cereals will be fairly good. The financial condition of the Golden Valley was never better and it is ex' pected that a large number of farmers will hold their grain with the expectation of better prices next season. The price of wheat advanced seven cents during the week, but' the reports of the possibility of free entrance of wheat to the United States from Canada had a tendency to force a two cent decline in the price of grain. The average yield through out the Golden Valley ranges from 15 to as high as 30 bu shels per acre. A few reports indicate that yields have been as high as 32 bushels of wheat per acre. Rev. F* W. Gress Receives Appointment to Mandan. At the recent Methodist conference Rev. F. W. Gress pastor of the Methodist church in this city received the word that his pastorate was to be changed. Rev. Ira E. Ham mer has been chosen as his successor. Rev. W. G. Ben net will have charge of the Beach circuit Rev. Gress, who has receiv ed an appointment to Mandan, has been in this city the past four years. A. C. THOMPSON'S BIG FARM SALE. The attention of our farm er readers is again called to the big public auction sale of A. C. Thompson, which will occur at the farm two and a half miles east of the Beach cemetery, on the state line. Mr. Thompson has a very complete offering of excellent farm stock, such as horses, milch cows, hogs and poultry. A quantity of farm machinery also will be sold. As usual, free lunch and hot coffee will be served. The chances for recovery of George Loftus, Equity leader, who was operated upon for abdominal cancer a few days ago, are fairly good. Aside from the operation, doctors for Mr. Loftus treated him with a cancer serum may aid him in his recovery. I I I 111 •.

Black Trail Re ceives Attention Proposed New Auto Highway Receives Support of Farm ers and Business Men Con' tiguous to Route. M. L.' Power, the Killdeer clothing man, was in the city during the week attending to his mercantile interests in this city. He is very enthusiastic over the proposed Black Trail, which will, when completed, extend from Bowman county as far north as Williams and Divide counties, this state. The Black Trail will cross the Northern Pacific railroad at Dickinson and proceed nort at Dickinson and proceed north to Manning and Kill deer, and from Killdeer west through the most picturesque country in that section to Oak dale, thence to Alexander and across the Missouri to Willis to and north again to Crosby and Ambrose. Among those who are pro moting the new trail in the Killdeer country are Messrs Power, Lee, Brooks and Hou gen, as well as several other merchants who realize the benefits which are attendant to a highway such as the pro posed route. It is said that U. L. Burdick, candidate for governor, templates giving the proposa every assistance possible in the territory at the north end of the route. Now Believe In Reciprocity Efforts' Being Made in Cana dian Capital to Dispense With Duty on Grain. Minneapolis, jMinn., Oct 20.—That Canada will soon take off its tariff against Am erican wjheat, thereby auto matically rending inoperative the American import duty 10 cents a bushel on American wheat, was the prediction made today on the floor of the Minneapolis chamber of com merce. In case such action is taken at Ottawa, the result, in the opinion of members of the chamber, will be to enlarge greatly the importance of Min neapolis as a primary cash wheat market^ Prediction made today is based on infor mation coming from Ottawa and Winnipeg. It will not be necessary to pass legislation to remove the duty on wheat and flour under the war measures act this can be done by an order-in-coun' cil and can be made effective in two hours. If the govern ment decides to remove wheat duty it will not be necessary to summon parliament. The state department has ask ed the Chicago packers pro testing against British confis cation of their meat products shipments to neutrals to sub mit further evidence that the meat was not intended for Great Britain's enemies. The cases are covered in a gener al way in the note to London on interference with neutral trades now awaiting President Wilson's approval. Whether in addition special representa" tion will be made on behalf of the packers, depends, it is un derstood, on the evidence now asked for. T. D.

Plans are now in the mak ing to asecrtain the exact amount that may be secured in support of the proposed1 line in the Upper Golden Val The suggestions, which: will doubt bring good' results, come from I. H. Claggett of this city, who proposes to have blue prints made of the locali ty through which the proposed line will run.

Eight Pages NUMBER 50 Honeymoon Dis appoints Audience iiocre Company Occupy Boards on Monday Evening Beach Theatre'goers Disap pointed With Production. Not to speak it profanely" respecting traveling theatri cal troupes that occasionally pay the local patrons a visit and who deign to practice in the land of make believe, but the Honey-moon" play which showed on last Monday even ing at the local opera house was so utterly devoid of merit that it was an affront to one's dramatic taste. The "play" lethargically wended through five acts. The settings of each act should have suggested that the scenes incident to the play were laid in Spain. A patient audience sat through to the finish in the hope that something real in teresting might result. They were disappointed. As scheduled, a solo dance took place during the first and second act' It was not a Spanish dance as promised. The young lady had not even the proper costume nor the proverbial castanets. Before the funereal per formance was brought to a close, one of the dashing cav aliers, before the curtain begged that criticism be with held because of the illness of the lady who. essayed the leading role. Criticism was withheld in their presence, in spite of the fact that the ill ness, attributed to the leading lady only, must have been transmitted to the other mem" bers of the troupe. A poorly chosen drama in a measure accounted for the lack of interest. With respect to an incident such as this the management of the opera house may often come in for severe criticism. It is not quite deserved, howev er, for the reason that it oc casionally happens that medi ocre performers eome well recommended as in the case of the "Honey-moon" company* Attention should be eall@d» however, to the lack of abili ty of the performers so that our neighbors in every direc tion may be denied the dis* comfort of having to sit through two hours and a half of wearisome delineation. New Enterprise in Dickinson Building During the week Mrs. B. Davitt rented quarters in the Dickinson building across the street from the Beach State bank, which will be occupied as a modern shoe repairing parlor. Otto Wygen will have charge of the new enterprise. The new place of business is fitted with all-electric ma" chinery necessary to an enter prise of this kind. A young lady who has tak en a special interest in the European struggle and who has some pretensions along literary lines was heard to say that in the the event Great Britain should decide to secure three million more men that they would have to resort to consecration. Messrs. Shear and Stuhr of Sentinel Butte were among those who witnessed the depic tion of Graustark at the opera house on Thursday evening. Judge Bushnell of Wibaux was among the business visi tors in the city on Monday.
