Meyer as secretary. Mr. L. G
Delameter was introduced and
addressed the meeting. He
stated that his firm were anxious
to remove their sash and door
factory from Minneapolis to this
city. It gave employment to
about twenty-five men and was a
manufacturing enterprise which
he believed the people of the city
who were interested in its future
welfare could "well afford to
courage. Arrangements had
been made for a site with Senator
Swed back and all that was neces
sary to secure the location of the
factory here was the subscrip
tion of $5,000 stock by the citi
zens or business interests of the
town. He explained the possibil
ities of the factory at length and
made a very satisfactory impres
sion. In the event thai! the money
was subscribed the factory

team will visit thifc city to see
just what encouragement Be
midji may be expected to give
the game. The project of having
a joint club in the league with
Crookston is not favorably re
ceived here generally and it is
probable that the ultimate ar

Coroner Henderson Further In
Deputy Coroner Marcum who
wont to Tenstrike yesterday to
view the remains of Wm. Dett
dker, who suicided by hanging
at the rear of the Stechman hotel
Sunday night, returned to the
city yesterday afternoon and
submitted his report to Coroner
Henderson. As a result there
will be a further investigation of
the suicide by Dr. Henderson to
day. Some of the circumstances
in connection with the hanging
were unusual and tho investiga
tion is deemed necessary to satis
factorily clear up the matter.
As usual there is very groat deal
of talk in connection with the
matter. Tho rope which Dett
dker used in hanging was very
short and was fastened in a
somewhat peculiar way and this
-loads to ugly rumors which tho
investigation will finally dispose
of. The body is held at Ten
strike pending the clearing up of
all circumstances in connection
with the affair.

county farmer living a few miles

inducements to the stock farmer.
Mr. Giltillan has over a hundred
acres of fairly good meadow laud
and has gone to tho southern
part of the state to buy young
cattle, which '*hoA, will fatten and

see any reason why cattle canrrotr
be successfully raised at a profit
in this country as they are in the
older sections of the state and
