Page Advertisement in Last Sunday's Chicago Tri bune Disposed of More Than $20,000 Worth First Day—Offices Established in Chicago, New York and Other Leading Cities. BISMARCK, N. D.. April 19.— The active campaign to sell North Dakota state bonds direct to the people of -the United States is now being conducted by the Bank ot North Dakota, according to Director General F. W. Cathro, of the bank. The drive includes a campaign of advertising in the big newspapers in the bond market centers and in the magazines and the establishment of branch offices of the Bank of North Dakota in Chicago and New York, to receive subscriptions. The drive in the Chicago sector was opened Sunday with a full page •advertisement in the Chicago Tribune offering $3,000,000 of 534 per cent tax exempt real estate series bonds direct to the investors of Chicago. "We have contracted for advertis ing space in the Chicago Tribune," declared Director General Cathro in explaining the campaign. "The Chicago Tribune is one of the most conservative daily newspapers in the country and has ironclad rules that do not permit the advertising of any securities on which there is the slightest shadow. In advertising our bonds we merely set out the facts to prove that they are a gilt edge in vestment." Director General Cathro also an nounced that the first day's Chicago campaign produced sales totalling $20,545. The Chicago office of the Bank of North Dakota is located at -059 People Gas Building with Walther R. Morrison in charge of the solicit ing and advertising. Kansas Mob Proves Hopelessness N. P. L. Program, Says New York World? The following editorial clipped from the New York World gives the reader a good general idea as to what is thought of the Kansas tar ring mob and the fight now being brought against the people's ad ministration in North Dakota by a gang of wreckers in the employ of Wall Street and the big bankers of the country. It should be under stood that the New York World is not of the so-called radical type, but on the contrary, quite conser vative. But the big thing about the World is that it is not controlled by Wall Street, and that the Wall Street crowd is bitterly opposed to the pol icy of this paper. The reason for this opposition is not hard to under stand. The fact is that the World refuses. to take Wall Street's dicca tidtt and naturally this gang has no use for any paper or organization that in any way takes issue with its rule or ruin policy. The World is one of the greatest papers in America, and its frankness and fairness in speaking ot the Kansas mob is of more than passing moment. The World article follows: KANSAS SETTLES THE NON PARTISAN QUESTION, Two hundred citizens of Bar ton County, Kan., broke up a meeting of Non Partisan Leaguars last Sunday, led the State Secretary and the State Organizer to a lonely spot near South Itend and there proceeded to apply tar and prairie grass to the officiate to convince them of the unsoundness of the league's economic theories. Tills proves beyond a shadow of doubt that State-owned ele vators are fallacious in prin ciple, that the extension of credit to farmers by the State is unsound and unsafe, that the financial depression of North Dakota Is due solely to the at tempt to establish direct rela tions between grain-growers and milling companies, that Townley and Lemke and all those connected with them are crooks and demagogues, that an honest farmer can always make, a living despite high In terest charges and a- wheat-buy ing combination against him, and that a virtuous Kansas, 100 per cent. American and purged of cults and isms, needs no ad vice from its neighbors. A more academic and neu rasthenic community might have wasted time in cajolery and verbal dissension, or might have allowed a debate pro and con, thereby running the risk of de feat. Barton County disdains logic-and makes its points in escapable with tar. The Non* Partisan League, it is now ap parent, was economically wrong from the beginning and will re main forever and indisputably in the wrong. 5 Eddie and Robert Lavachek and Alice" and Lynden Goldsmith of Enterprise township were Sunday visitors at the H.

It comes this time in the way of an innovation in incu*bation. He has a boarder up at his board ing house by the name ot Leon Bar ber, who, becoming tired of the monotony of county boarding house existence, decided to enter into the chicken business. Barber started in this way. He secured four eggs from the janitor, which he placed upon the boiler of the court house heating plant and patiently waited results. In due time his hopes were realized, parti ally at least, for he is now the pos sesor of two downy little chicks and has proven to his own satisfaction that hatching chickens is a very simple undertaking. Sheriff Baker tells us that Barber is very proud of his newly acquired possesion, and that the chicks seem perfectly satis fied with their environment and none the worse off for the peculiar manner in which they came into ex istance. More Fish Placed in Dry Wood by Game Warden Harry Cotman, our hustling dep uty state ^game warden, was in town Tuesday on route to Dry Wood lake with a truck load of fish to be placed, in the north end of the lake.

I) CONCERT BY BAND G00D0NE LARGE AIDIENCE HEARS FIRST FREE CONCERT OF SEASON BY MUNICIPAL BAND AT SCHOOL AUDITORIUM. Program Was Extensive and Very Iatefoetlngand Entertaining Throughout Each Number Well Presented. The citizens of Sisseton had the pleasure of enjoying one of the best musical treats at the school audi torium Monday night that has been given in* our city for some time ia the way of free entertainment, when the Sisseton Municipal band gave a free concert to a large and apprecia tive audience. The program was well chosen, ex tensile and diversified, and every number well received and highly appreciated by everybody present, as was ef^enced by the enthusiastic "hands ftoin the front", and the many and' repeated encores. The violin duet by Sateren and Moe was very good and so well ap preciated that they were obliged to play an encore. The vocal solo by Henry Hanson was received with enthusiastic ap plause, and he also was called upon to sing the second time. Mr. Hanson has an excellent voice, and this fact is only further evidence that Sisse ton is especially fortunate in hav ing an abundance ot musical talent of the better sort. The trombone solo by Elmer Camp came in for hearty and enthusiastic applause awl encore. The reading by Miss Axness" was excellent, and we want to put em phasis on the adjective. While yet very young, her delivery, expression, and acting was suq£ aa would have done credit to one of much more mature years, and proved that she is a natural born elocutionist. She was called upon the second time and the encore was greeted by hearty applause from the admiring audi ence. The saxophone duet by Dr. Sorbel and Clarence Johnson was very pleasing and entertaining, and the execution was that of the trained musician. They were greeted by much applause and encore. Dr. Longstreth gave a very inter esting and instructive talk at the beginning of the program, touching upon the importance of a good band organization for Sisseton, what had thus far been accomplished by our citizens in rendering financial and moral support to the organization, and asked that due consideration be given the proposition at the city election for the levying of a tax of one mill for the creation of a fund for the maintenance of a municipal band. Following is the program as rendered: (Continued on Page 4) Sanitary Makes Several Changes The Sanitary Barber shop has undergone considerable remodeling and general dressing up lately. The old vestibule, which formerly took up consireable space in the entrance of the shop has been torn out and replaced by two concrete steps which lead from the sidewalk to the interior. This not only affords a great advantage in the way of ad ditional floor space, but adds infi nitely to the general good appearance and convenience of the work room. The open wiring has also been sup planted by pipe wiring, and painters will begin work soon on the paint ing and decorating of the interior. When finished the Sanitary will pre sent a very neat appearance and be without doubt one of the nicest barber shopB in this sectton of the state.

BUNDE"i5 ELECTED 2D. TERM Tom Osman Wins Over John Swan* berg For Aldennan In Second, Ward and O. E. Aldennan Second Ward. Sisseton had one of the quietest elections Tuesday that was ever witnessed since itB existance as a city. There was nothing ot a warm ing up nature about the whole afy fair excepting the weather, and in this particular It was rather a hot one. There were not, however, any particular issues for the elector's consideration to create any undue enthusiasm. The only feature ap proaching anything of this nature was the proposition for voting a tax levy for the maintenance of municipal band, which carried by a big majority. This assures Sisse ton a first class band at a minimum cost to the city, and puts the organi zation on a sound footing where real progress can be made. There are few towns the size of Sisseton that can boast of a band organiza tion the equal of the one we have here at the present time, and now with the guarantee of sufficient funds to work on, we can expect •some real progress in general devel opment and proficiency. The contest for mayor did not prove to be a very hotly contested one. A. O. Bunde, tor re-election, and A. Arrowsmith were the candi dates for this office, but it seemed that the majority of the citizens were satisfied with the present In cumbent and returned Mr. Bunde by a large majority, the vote being 341 for Bunde, and 122 for Arrowsmith. Thos. Osman was chosen alderman In the second ward over ohn Swanberg by a vote of 61 to 54. VOTE BY WARDS. First Ward—'Bunde 103, Arrow smith 30. Second Ward—Bunde 79, Arrow smith 38.

Decorate American Graves Overseas on Memorial Day Another Memorial! Day is ap proaching. But few of the relatives of the fallen can go to Europe to lay a wreath on the grave of the departed.
