In an altercation at Ada early on
the morHing of July 4th, Alfred
Warren, of Twin Lakes this reser
vation, was struck on the back of
the head and neck and instantly
From the several reports, many
of them from eye witnesses of the
foul crime, the conclusions arrived
at are to the effect that some time
during the night of July 8rd, and
the morning of the 4th, a party of
two or three drunken mixed-bloods
from the Pembina reservation,
were in the vicinity of the tents,
occupied by Warren and others,
and indulging in drunken debauch
ery and otherwise disturbing the
rest and peace of the slumbering
occupants of the tented village.
Finally Warren came oijt of the
tent and kindly requested the row
dies to be more peaceful or move
away from the vicinity of his tent,
an altercation, followed by a scuf
fle, in which two of the rowdies
fell on Warren and while he was
bravely fighting his two antagon
ists off, the third rowdy of the
tarty with a club or billy, treach
erously stole up behind and dealt
him a death blow on the head and
neck killing him instantly.
The Ada authorities made a pas
sive investigation of the most out
rageous crime and rendered a gen
eral verdict that the death of the
victim was caused "by the hand
of an unknown person or persons,
the same being of his (Warren's)
On the receipt of this decision,
the citizens of this village held an
indignation meeting and proceeded
in a body to the agency office and
interviewed U. S. Indian Agent
Simon Michelet andmaking a for
mal request that steps be at once
taken looking to a searching in
vestigation of this most heinous
crime and, to the end, that the
dastardly murder of Alfred War
ren be avenged.
We hear that Agent Michelet
lias taken steps and is making a
thorough investigation of this ter
rible murder and it is probable he
succeed in soon running the
guilty wretch to earth.
