FIREMEN ASK ABOUT WARRANTS
Williston, N. D.—The outstanding feature of the opening day of the three-day convention of the North Dakota Firemen’s association, was the following telegram sent to D. C. Poindexter, state auditor:
“Five hundred delegates representing 6,000 members of the North Dakota Firemen’s association in convention assembled at Williston, are asking why warrants of the two per cent fire insurance tax, of which the state is our custodian, were not issued and forwarded June 1, as required by law. Failure to receive this money prevented hundreds of delegates from attending convention. Please wire reply.”
H. L. Reade, secretary of the association, stated before the convention that the state treasurer told him before leaving Bismarck that there was $500,000 available to pay the warrants should they be issued and he saw no reason for the delay.
