O'Shaughnessy were to convey the
desires of the United States to Huer
ta substantially as outlined in dis
patches from Mexico City last Mon

that President Wilson considers the

STATE IS IN MUDDLE OVER DE
FECTIVE HUE BOOKS FOR 1913
Over $8,000 Was Paid for Work Before Deliv
ery—Books Must Now Be Refused by the
Secretary of State.
Bismarck, N. D., Nov. 6.—The fact
that Secretary of State Thomas Hall
was said to have refused furtner de
liveries of the 1913 Blue Book till cer
tain corrections had been made and
also till the inferior quality of binding
had been overcome, has caused no lit
tle comment about the capitol build
A .search of the records proves that
on August 30 the Journal Publishing
company of Devils Lake, wliich com
pany has a contract for the first four
classes of state printing for the pres
ent biennial period, and which work
is being produced by the Dakota
Printing and Stationery company ,a
concern that was not established in
Bismarck till after the Journal Pub
lishing company secured this contract,
filed an estimate for a payment of
$12,000 on the 1913 blue book, the
Journal Publishing company claiming
in a sworn statement contained in this
vouches that they were producing 15,
000 blue books which would contain
from 560 to 580 pages, and that they
at that time had 480 pages completed.
On that date Taylor Thompson, sign
ing as state printer, approved for pay
ment this voucher in the sum of $10,
950.00, but the printing commission
with State Treasurer Olson and Se
cretary of State Hall only present ap
proved the voucher 'for $8,212.50.
which amount was paid by the state to
the Journal Publishing company on
that same date as a part payment on
the 1913 blue book. It was not till the
last week of October that any of those
blue books were delivered and up to
date only 200 copies have been receiv
ed by the secretary of state. So
many errors did the publication con
tain, and so inferior was the binding
that Secretary Hall called the print
ers' attention to the fact that he did
believe that he would receive any
more copies till the book was
produced up to the required standard
quality of workmanship. But the state
having paid the printers two
months ago over $8,000 on this work,
it made the situation a really serious
one, and it has been paid upon the as
surances that these errors and infer
ior binding will be corrected that, is
quite likely that the balance of the
books will be finally accepted.
The condition of affairs concerning
the blue book has also led to inquir
ies regarding the condition of state
printing funds in general. In that in

stance the records show that in Jan
uary 1st, 1913, there was the sum of
$2,192.86 to the credit of the public
printing fund, but the legislature con
vened the following week and during
the session there was appropriated by
legislature the sum of $80,000 for the
following two-year period, making a
total of $82,192.86 that was available
for state printing for the period of
from January 1st 1913 to January 1st,
1915. I'p to date mere aas been paid
out of tlie public printing fund the
of $65,179.32, leaving a balance of but
$16,213.54, and there is pending before
the printing commission at the present
time bills in the amount of $10,000 for
completed work which will leave but
$6,213.54 available l'ur tlie payment of
state printing from now till January
1st, 1915. That Governor Hanna cau
tioned the legislature early in the ses
sion that economy should be follow
ed in having state printing executed is
shown in a message the governor sent
to both branches on January 27, 1913,
urging that extravagance be avoided.
How much attention the legislature
heeded the admonition of the governor
is shown in the fact that the sen
ate passed a resolution in line with
what the governor recommended re
garding legislative printing, but ihe
house upon the representation made
by the printers who had the contract
for state printing, that the state would
receive cheaper printing than anytime*
during the history of the state, failed
to pass any resolution in line with
the governor's warning, and as a re
sult the cost of printing the bills and
journals for both Branches cost the
state for the session of 1913, $32,586.85
which does not include miscellaneous
printing for the legislature such as
lithographed letter heads, and other
small printing, which will amount to
fully $2,000 by the time the state has
made a final settlement with the con
tracting printers. With the legisla
ture and tne state depAiiraents paying
no apparent attention to Governor
Hanna's warnings as to economy the
governor is helpless to head off this
extravagance and with the public
printing fund of over $80,000, practi
cally exhausted at this time, it would
seem difficult to determine how print
ing needed for the balance of the two
years period is to be paid for, as by
the time final payment is made for
the blue book the fund will be ex
