BANK OF WARREN
State Bank of Warren Strengthens
Itself by Succeeding to
The Bank of Warren, the oldest
bank in Marshall County, establish
ed in 1884, was last Saturday trans
ferred to the State Bank of Warren,
the business and good will as well as
the handsome new bank building be
ing, acquired by the latter institu
tion. Mr. L. Lamberson. who has
been identified with the bank as its
cashier ever since it was organized,
and was the principal owner, has
drifted gradually into the real estate
business, and this business has
grown to such an extent, and de
manded so much of his time and at
tention that it was impossible for
him to do full justice to the banking
business. Mr. Lamberson owns or
controls 100 farms in this immediate
territory. Since the death of Hon.
B. G. Gill, who was associated with
Mr. Lamberson in the bank, Mr.
Lamberson has endeavored to secure
some satisfactory arrangement with
those in charge of his estate, for re
organizing the bank and continuing
the business, and failure to make
such arrangement was also a factor
that prompted Mr. Lamberson re
tirement from the banking business.
His desire to be relieved of care and
responsibility, and get more time for
enjoyment ot lite also induced him
to take the step. Mr. Lamberson is
a very industrious man and among
the business men theie is not a hard
er or more Dresisteut worker than
he. From this \ievv point also he
has earned respite from the arduous
laboi he has., been engaged in for

A prairie fire near Shirly, north
of Crookston, burned the granary
on the farm of J. F. Banta. to
gether with four stacks of grain.
The farm house was saved with
much difficulty. The school house
in the district was also burned.
During this drv weather it behooves
all to be verv careful about setting
fires. Carelessness in this regard
may cause tremendous loss of pro
perty as well as loss of human lives.
The work of remodelling the
Swedish Mission church in this city,
commenced on Monday. First the
old building, which was erected in
1883. was raised and turned so as to
face south instead of east. An ad
dition will be built to the rear with
basement underneath for the accom
modation of a furnace, and the front
of the building will also be added to
by the construction of a handsome
tower. These extensive improve
ments will cost about $2000, the
whole amount of which has already
been subscribed. The pastor. Rev.
C. A. Jacobson hab taken a leading
part in getting these valuable im
provements started and it is largely
due to his Christian zeal and enter
,prsie that they have been under
taken at this time. The remodeled
Swedish Mission church will be a
handsome structure and a credit to
this citv ol churches and schools.

Marshal Startles Can-
The international boundary line in
the vicinity of Noyes continues to
furnish excitement and material for
news. Only last week. Emma Gold
man, the high priestess of anarchy,
was held up for a day by immigra
tion inspector at the boundry line
until she could show that she was a
citizen of the United States and was
then allowed to pass.
More startinlg news than this
reached us later in the week when it
was learned that Herbert Wright
was taken into custody by H. A.
Rider, deputy U. S. marshal, and
that at the point of a revolver.
According to the best information,
he was arrested on the charge of
assisting an undesirable
into the United States
person had been refused
by immigration officials
It appears that Margaret Pearson,
an alien who would be classed as an
undesirable citizen, attempted to
gain admission into the United
States but was turned back by the
immigration inspectors at Noyes.
She remained at Emerson for two or
three davs and during that time in
duced Mr. Wright to pilot her
through so that on Tuesday of last
week he smuggled her trunk thiough
the lines and took the woman hei
self by team to Orleans, wheie she
embaiked on the train and went to
Thief River Falls.
Theie she became an inmate of
the red light disfciict. and she was
later arrested theie. She confessed,
implicating Wright, and was again
deported. The warrant toi the
