The Commercial club held an en
thusiastic meeting at noon
made preliminary arrangements for
collecting an exhibit to be shown at
the North Dakota Industrial Exposi
tion at Bismarck in October. Those
who attended the meeting were of the
opinion that Barnes county should
spare no effort in providing an exhibit
that will excel all others in the state,
and the committee appointed to man
age the collection is made up of men
who do things- A vigorous campaign
will begin at once and all who are in
terested in seeing Barnes county to
the front at the big state show are re
quetsed to get into communication
with the Commercial club or its com
mittee at the earliest date possible.
Farmers throughout the county
have been much interested in the
North Dakota Industrial Exhibition
and many have been preparing to en
ter their choicest products for display
at the state capital. Now that the
organized movement is on foot it is
thought there will be little difficulty
in collecting all the best that Barnes
county has to offer, and arrange to
display the riches of the county to the
best advantage.
Express Packages
Must Be In Early
Persons desiring to express pack
ages must have them in .the express
offices one hour before train time.
This is a ruling of the interstate Com
merce Commission which became ef
fective 'Sept. 1. Under the new- ruling
all express packages must go through
the express office and have a "collect"
or "prepaid" stamp attached thereto.
This system abolishes the practice of
rushing to the train at the last mo
ment and loading them without pass
ing through the office. To comply
with the ruling the local companies
require all packages to be in their
offices at least one hour before train

J. A. Biggs, director of athletics, Is
anxious for the young men to come in

muscles and that is all,'' said Mr.
Biggs, "and it will be necessary for
considerable training to put them in
shape to play football and basketball.
'We have the material for making a
good team this year but will be a
little late in starting. Interest in the
games this year, however, will add
zest to the training, and we will make

has been issued, for the officers and
directors, of the Chamber Commerce
of the United States to meet in Bos

all parts of the nation the achieve
ments of development in each state
during the year 1912.

Grand forks Mayor
Calls Convention
Grand Forks, Sept. 11.—With the
growth of the state municipal prob
lems in North Dakota are beginning
to assume such proportions that or
ganized effort
the part of cities
is required to cope with them and se
cure needed legislation. To this end

sued a call to the mayors of cities
and the presidents of villages in the
state to meet in this city, Sept. 25, for
the purpose of organizing a municipal
league. In his call Mayor Murphy
urges- that most states already have
such a league and that North Dakota
cities need some organization, if nec
essary legislation for their growth and
development is to be secured.

Anxiety and over zealousness on the
part of self appointed state leaders of
a third party state movement for a
third state ticket, caused them to
break precedent in all political his
tory and conventions, by nominating a
state ticket, without the consent of
the nominees, and thus bring it about
that, so fiar as a third state ticket is
concerned, there is none, unless the
candidates renounce allegiance to the
Republican state ticket and join the
corps of self appointed state leaders.
The mistake in nominating all the'
candidates oh the Progressive Repub
lican ticket, with the exception of
governor and commissioner of agricul
ture and labor, without their hosts,
places the executive committee of the
state central committee, assisted by
Chairman Dorr H. Carroll, in the po
sition of attempting to force these
candidates off the Republican ticket,
if their action is really a mistake. The
most charitable view assumed by
those opposed to a third state ticket
is to call it a "mistake" and give the
self appointed leaders the benefit of
the doubt as to their political acumen,
sound judgment and ability to conduct'
a convention.
Wanted Presidential Electors.
Delegates to the state convention as
sert they attended for the purpose of
selecting Roosevelt presidential elec
tors, and not to place a third ticket in
the field. If the law is adhered to and
the candidates on the Republican
ticket do not withdraw to accept the
nomination of the third party state
ticket, theer can be no third state tick
et in the field unless another conven
tion is called, or the executive com
mittee, assisted by Mr. Carroll, nomi
nates a ticket in the same manner

One delegate in the convention
raised the point that the law provides
that candidates' names may appear
only on one ticket. He was hushed
by the chair and told that if they did
not accept others could be appointed
who would. That ended the matter
and the convention took no action to
delegate the power to fill vacancies to
the state central committee, or the
executive committee of the state cen
tral committee, assisted by Mr. Car
roll. ,The adoption of the resolution
authorizing the committee, assisted by
Mr. Carroll, to name a candidate for
the office of commissioner of agricul
ture and labor, is pointed out by dele
gates to the convention, that it was
uot to the sense of the meeting to al
low these self appointed leaders to
name an entire ticket. Otherwise, the
convention would have closed with the

No one is absolutely accusing the
executive committee, assisted by Mr.
Carroll, of deliberately intending to
defraud the delegates by knowingly
usurping authority not granted them
to name a candidate for governor and
an entire state ticket, but the conven
tion has turned out that way. The
law says:
Candidates for prizes in the Times
Record's subscription contest, which
closed last Saturday evening, have ex
pressed their entire satisfaction with
the manner in which the big campaign
was conducted.
Just prior to the close of the con
test, the following certificate was vol
untarily signed by the various con
testants, indicating their good faith in
thie contest, and- their satisfaction
with the methods of the Times-Record
in putting it on:
We, the undersigned candidates do
hereby certify that all subscriptions
turned in by us are bona fide that we
have seen the prizes which are on ex
hibition, and that they are exactly as
advertised also that the .number of
votes set opposite our names was to
the best of our knowledge correct.

It is presumed that the self appoint
ed leaders knew the law at the time
of the convention. In fact, the atten
tion of ,the chair was called to the pro
vision of the law regarding candidates'
names appearing on more than one
ticket on the ballot. The fact that this
point of law was raised and the con
vention took no action to authorize
