SPIRIT OF ECONOMY.
The News .has charged the
board of county commissioners
with a spirit of economy. I
isavoid
safe to say that the people of the
county will be pleased to learn
of this charge and will hope to
hear it repeated very often.
County commissioners are often
charged with extravagance but
it is seldom indeed that the board
of county commissioners is ac
cused of economy. In this re
spect Beltrami county may well
consider itself fortunate.
It takes a lot of money to run a
county of Beltrami's bigness.
And any live men who can so
manage the finances of such a
county as to lay themselves liable
to the charge of economy are
certainly deserving of the ap
plause of the taxpayer.
The faultfinding of the News
arises from the fact that the city
water was temporarily cut off at
the court house because the com
missioners cut the city's bill for
water. Without attempting to
decide what is or is not a fair
price for the city water we may
mention the fact that the Polk
county court house and jail, than
which there are few better or
more complete in the state, is
lighted and furnished with water
at a flat rate of $20 per month.
The Beltrami county rate
amounts to fully twice that
amount yet the News has econo
mical hysterics when the com
missioners attempt to save the
taxpayers of the county a part
of this amount.
The News has been wont to
charge the board of county com
missioners with extravagance
its certificate of the board's care
fulness in the expenditure of the
people's money thus comes with
peculiar weight and the board
may well consider itself fully
vindicated.

NORTHS COUNTR
Thief River Falls sees several
railroads, a trolley line, two
union depots, car shops and a
$25,000 opera house in the near
future. The town is certainly a
kleptomaniac so far as visions go.
"If it is to be Dunn next year,
why such a fuss about anything
being done this year," demands

Roger C. Spooner, superin

Senator Knute Nelson, and knew

Albion, Wis. Speaking of the

made a prediction. It was to
the effect that inside of two or
three years he would again s(e
Mr. Nelson and that he would be
on his way to congress. Mr.
Spooner had great confidence in
the young man's ability and
made the statement in good
faith. He was therefore not sui|
prised several years after to
meet Congressman Nelson on
his way to Washington. The
two gentlemen are quite warm
personal friends, and no one
speaks more highly of Senator
Nelson than Mr. Spooner.
