COMMERCIAL aUB WOULD
BUILD BETTER ROADS
Directors Outline Plan of
Work for Season. Would
Raise $100,000 tor High
ORGANIZATION IS ACTIVE
The directors meeting of the Com
mercial Club was held in the club
rooms Tuesday evening, most of
the board being present. The mat
ter of promoting the various proposed
projects for the betterment of the
town was talked over and many plans
outlined, but perhaps the most import
ant matter that come up is that of
starting an agitation for better roads
in the county.
A movement looking toward raising
$100,000 for road building was actu
ally launched, and will be followed up
with a determined effort. No definate
plans for raising the money was de
cided upon and that will be taken up
at a later date

There is nothing today which is at
tracting so much public attention as
good roads. It effects the school at
tendance, the price of land, the cost
of moving produce and the social
pleasures of the community. Good
roads in the county will bring thou
sands of people here as visitors and
perhaps permanent settlers who other
wise might not come. There are
thousands of reasons why this—the
best county in the state—should have
good roads and not a single sane rea
son why they should not, with the
splendid road-making soil, at least this
is the stand the board of directors of
the Valley City Commercial Club are
taking and the agitation will continue
until finally muddy roads will be
rather the exception than the rule.
From time to time the work of the
club will be outlined and meanwhile
if there is anyone in the community
who are not members of that organi
zation—i't will be well to join now, or
at least get in line to assist in a move
ment for better roads in every part of
the county. This is not intended as a
selfish move to improve the highways

AN IMPORANT AFFAIR.
It will be noted that in its account
of the banquet of the Republican com
mitteemen Wednesday evening, the
Tiroes Record has given little or no
account of the speech made by U.
Burdick, candidate for governor. This
paper wishes it distinctly understood
that this apparent slight is in no way
Intended as a personal or political re
flection on Mr. Burdick. On the con
trary, we have the highest respect for
Mr. Burdick, both as a man and
"square" politician. Under other cir
cumstances it would give this paper
considerable pleasure, to report bis
speech as a matter of news, and give
the usual space to bis part in last ev
The blame for last night's unfortun
ate incident, resultin as it did in some
thing closely approaching a split in
the central committee, appears to
rest upon the shoulders of one man,
who invited Mr. Burdick to be present
as the principal speaker of the even
tag. Mr. Green, as chairman of the
central committee, went beyond all
bounds, when he exceeded Ms author
ity by injecting fractional politics in
to what was ntended to be a get-geth
No one acquainted with the most
primitive form of politics but knows
that it is not within the province of
a central committee, be it county or
state, to indorse any fractional candi
date for office, but nevertheless it re
ported on credible authority that the
chairman of the committee proposed
to make such an endorsement, and
when this was stopped, purposed a
toast to "the next governor of North
Dakota." It was an attempt to make
political capital out of a courteous re
ception to visitor, and that it failed of
its intended effect is due to the good
sense of those who attended the meet
The protests against Mr. Burdick's
making a factional speech at a non
partisan Republican meeting began
before the banquet started, and after
wards, when the affair was thoroughly
discussed and aired, there could be no
doubt but that it had reacted through
the chairman of the central commit
tee, upon his candidate.
It is unfortunate that this should be
the case, as Mr. Burdick would not,
we believe, stoop to chicanery in poli
tics. Nevertheless, upon his should
ers must the burden of the results fall.
Had he known the real nature of the
affair which he was attending, that it
was made possible by money furnished
within the county from all factions of
the party, solicited by men from both
factions, we cannot believe that he
would have appeared in Valley City.
Other leaders who were present last
night, disclaimed knowledge or re
sponsibility for Mr. Burdick's presence.
In fact, as soon as the effect upon the
committeemen began to be seen, there
was a decided tendency to shift the
responsibility upon some one else's
shoulders. Even Mr. Burdick's staunch
est supporters admitted that "it was
not good policy," and that a bad mis
take had been made.
It was said today that the antagon
ism to the present incumbent, which
resulted in Mr. Burdick's presence last
night, was caused by failure to secure
a political appointment from Governor
Hanna some months ago, when there
was a vacancy on the board of trustees
of the Agriculture college.
BIG INFLUX OF STUDENTS
AT STATE NORMAL SCHOOL
NUMBER ENROLLED DURING
FIRST TWO DAYS OF SPRING
Just 91 more students were enrolled
at the State Normal school at the
close of office hours last night than
were enrolled during the first: tiro days
of the spring term in 1913.. The total
number thus far enrolled for the term
is 546, the number enrolled for the
spring, term last year, being 455 for
the first two days. In fact, the num
ber already enrolled is larger than the
total number of students enrolled for
the entire term last year, and it is ex
pected that others will register before
the close of the week. These stu
dents represent practically every
county in the state and about a dozen
states besides our own, and shows the
steady growth of the Normal school
year after year.
