Being Put Into
Fargo, N. D., Aug. 4.—The in
dustrial program of the National
Nonpartisan League, -which was en
dorsed by the voters of North Dakota
at a special referendum election on
June 26, is being put into operation.
The bank of North Dakota, in
which all State, county and muni
cipal funds are to be deposited un
der the new laws, is in operation,
but is not yet ready to make loans
and handle deposits on a big scale.
The bank now employs twenty
persons wtth an annual payroll of
$50,000. The batik's resources will
be more ttuin $31,000.00. Public
funds totaling $21,000,000 have been
reported and there are State bonds
of $10,000,000. Only about SIOO,OOO
worth of bank bonds have been sold
in the Stato, but bank officials ex
plain this by saying investors held
off pending the outcome of the
referendum. The bank had planned
to sell $500,000 worth of bonds.
"When the institution is in full
operation a statement similar to
those from the federal reserve banks
will be issued monthly outlining
conditions over the State. J. R.
Waters, formerly State bank ex
aminer, is head of the bank, and F.
W. Cathro, for thirty years a North
Dakota banker, is director general.
The bank will provide funds for
carrying out the industrial program,
and an industrial commission will
control the State-owned industries
to bo established.

ing and distributing system, has
been inspecting mills and elevators
with a view to purchasing two or
three to start the experiment. The
State is not expected to start an
extensive building program for sev
eral months.
Those directing the work express
confidence that every phase of the
program will meet with success, dis
pite strong opposition which they
say is being offered by league

is made in the current agricultural

I municipalities and public institu

I vides that animals may be lent to pr
| exchanged with other owners of
I American bison. No provision is
I made to give them to individuals,
{ and only one may be given to each
| municipality or public institution.
This provision is made because of the
! surplus of bulls In some of the De
