House Bill 97, the Valley City fair bfli, transferring the appropriation from Mandan, came up on third reading. Mr. Stevenson asked that the consideration of the matter he deferred until the afternoon. It was hardly fair to take up the matter so early, when many were absent, who should be given an opportunity to vote. The Mandan association had been to much expense ia making arrangement and erecting buildings --it was a matter that should have .tair consideration. He moved to have consideration of the bill deferred to the afternoon. The motion was test Mr. Stevens said it made no difference to him personally whether the fair was at Mandan or Valley City. Earl would see that he was entertained at Valley !ity and Uncle Don Stevenson at Man dan. and he wouldn't pay his way in ither place. But there some reasons why the change should not be made*. Ete association at Mandan had pat up extensive buildings and they were in he hole about $2,UOO. Another state air would help them to recoup. Valley City if it got the fair now would be before thy lejji-Jature two years from now. as Mamlan is now. asking a continuation fur two years, to help them out.

Substitute for House Bill 90. reeulat ing legislative employes was reported with recommendation to pass. ESTBAT BILL KILLED. House BilllStthe estray bill was up for consideration. Mr. Tonstev spoke against the provision making ha felony to fail to advertise estrays within a certain time. Thought it would be a mistake to change the present system and pass such a law that would not be generally understood. He moved that the bill be indefinitely postponed. Mr. Wblbert said the stockmen had stated that-the biU would not affect them, had voted for it in committee, the people of the Red River valley wanted it. He said the bill should pass. Mr. Laughlin explained the bilL Mr. Stevenson said he had not agreed to the bill -had merely stated that it did not affect him personally. It would affect Jjany people in his section --do many of ;hem an injustice, Mr. Bacon said the committee reported unanimously, and he did not believe any injustice would be done. The bin was reported to be indefinitely postponed. THE WO!K BOCSTY. Cheyenn" river was there to prevent. At { ^ Mandan, the fair was closer to a suppb me D Tof bounties was" of--a great deal bttter water.

Mr. amend by striking out , ranfinins the tax to the years ,. 1900. He stated the deficiency in the tax of one-tenth auQ for the state wolf- bounty. The state was in honor bound t« pay the bounty it had authorized. It no_ right to rejjudiate the obligation J ' ' provision for pay -»^«. .,» .rwHuv.wu ,i«*j insufficient. Xho state was morally bound to pay them, as any other deficiency. Mr. Lynch said he did not think the ing for uniform teacher's examinations by the state superintendent was recom mended for indefinite postponoment. Mr. Stevens spoke at length against the bill, which he said took from the county superintendents the work they were elected to do, and made them chore boys for the higher officer. He did not believe it was good or wise legislation. It was a centralization of power. It was saying to comity superintendents that they were not competent to do the work they were elected ~ uv . Mr. Hale said his county superintendent was as good and well qualified a man as there was in the state, and be had requested him: to vote for the bill--that satisfied him that it was an right. Mr. Sanford. incidentally to the discussion of the measure .called attention ;o an imputation that had been put upon the teachers of the state- and said: Mr. Chairman--The teachers of this state have rather a hard time and I desire to say a word in their behalf--to de- 'end them against what seems to me an unjust imputation. I have in my hand* a copy of "Th* School Educator"-- a marked copy.

Mr. Bacon thought the stockmen on the slope should hir.e a f^w mm to kill the wolves. It was a rank.injustice to appropriate nearly as much for wolf killing as to maintain the ttrgess educational institution in the state. Mr.Ohaeey did not propose- to support any measure that projiosed to legislate in the interests of the stockmen as against the formers. The motion to amend was lost, Mr. Dougherty wanted to amend the bill by a levy on personal property, but withdrew the amendment. i-cv/j^xc u» t,uc 9 uitr »uu woiuea 10 mane Mr. Lvnch moved to indefinitely po*t- exhibits could reach it conveniently, i pone the bill.

It U an unjust imputation upon our teachers and upon out state. These boys and girls who are teaching oor schools are worthy of consideration.
