FORMAL NOTE SENT III BERLIN GOVERNMENT While Not Questioning Gorman Mili tary Occupation tho American Com HMMication Presumes Consular Officers at Brussels Ars Agreeable to Authorities. Washington, Jan. 26 —The United States has sent a formal note to Ger many which, without discussing the sovereignty of Uelgium, expresses a willingness to make such arrange ments aa may be necessary with the Germany military authorities In de facto control of Belgian territory for the continuance of American consular service there. Although the first note from Gar many did not explicitly raise the Is sue officials of the Washington go* eminent in making their reply careful ly avoided any expression which could be construed as a political recognition of Germany's control of Belgium* Discussion Is Awaited. The decision of the United States has been awaited by Central and South American governments, who in •tructed their diplomatic representa tives here to discuss It In the Pan American Union. The note from the German foreign offlce sent Identical ly to all neutral governments an nounced that the exequaturs, or cer tificates of authority, of all neutral consuls had "expired." No reference was made In either the German note or the American reply to the status of diplomatic officers, American Minister Brand Whit lock will continue at Brussels, where he Is In active charge of Belgian relief work. her ath.

Several of the child living at a distance were le to attend Not a Political Representative. In ita reply the United States de clares that It considers a consul not a political, but "a commercial represen tative," who derives permission to do business. Irrespective of his legal right, from the authorities In direct control of the district to which he is assigned. In view of the German mili tary occupation the United Stages fur ther asserts that It "Is not Inclined to question at this time the right of Ger man y to suspend exequaturs." The language of the American note fevealfl that this government consid ers the exequaturs originally issuer! by the Belgian government to have been "suspended," and not "expired.'' as characterized In the German com munication. This construction is in accord with similar phraseology used by the United States on previous oc casions. While not questioning the German government's military occupation, the American note presumes that, the American consular officers at Brussels, Antwerp and Liege are personally agreeable to the German authorities. Ef they are not, the communication aaks that the Washington government be promptly Informed. It does not state whether new consuls would in that case be designated to replace them. like ^ereavment.

The value of the building was estimated to be about $20,000 with $8,000 insur ance. While there were several most miraculous escapes by the guests most fortunately there were no lives lost, excepting a pet bull dog owned by E. J. Morris, as sistant cashier of the First Na tional Bank, and formerly of this city. At about 2:15 o'clock li the morning the alarm of fire was turned in, and the citizens were awakened to find that the Stand ing Rock Hotel was afire. By the time that the fire boys were on the scene and had two streams of water playing upon the structure it was realiz?d a e o e u i i n w a s doomed, so the boys endeavored to save the adjoining building which was only three feet away. It speaks well of their untiring efforts to have checked the rav- spread to the adjoining building.

If the three euch roads, one south from l-emmon, one from Haynes and one from Hettinger, could be surveyed and the work let by contract it is (juiie probable that good graded thorofares could be built for about a hundred dollars per mile. Such a plan could be followed by the various town ships building main roads east and west to the county roads so that within a short time every farmer would ke within a few miles of an excellent road to market. Money spent in build ing cross roads and bridges at un necessary places would be saved and it would he an economy in taxes and in horseflesh, to say nothing of the improvement to be gained in the transporting of mail to the interior of the county.

Ma Company Gives Good Dance The annual Militia dance was given in Armory Flail last Fri day evening and according to predictions, ranked as about the best of the season. The decorations were by f?r the best of any dance given this season, and showed the pains and time that was given to it. The boys had the company em blem well spread throughout the hall, and the stars and stripes were to be seen decorating many an otherwise bare spot. At times the floor was crowded to its capacity with couples en joying dancing, to the strains of the excellent music rendered by e e o n o e s a A n lest we forget, lemmon certain ly has some fine orchestra. Preceding the dancing a crack squad gave an exhibition drill which was enjoyed very much by the assemblage. It also was of a very high order, and with very few exceptions was perfect to regulations. The only thing that was lacking to give it a better appearance would have been if the boys were equipped with the blue dress uniform. The squad was under the command of E. R. Priebe.
