Jurors Who Had Held Out Against a Conviction Were Led to Believe, Ac cording to Defendant's Attorneys, that They Would Be Locked Up An other Night Unless They Agreed. Special to The Journal. Fargo, N. D., Dec. 18.Sensational allcga tious are made by the attorney for the defense in the case of Major J. S. Murphy, who was convicted here of forgery in the third degree after a four weeks' trial. It is asserted that Judge Pollock paid a visit to the juryroom after the forty-eight hour con finement of the members and that a remark led to forcing the minority to agree in order to escape longer incarceratlou In the Juryroom. After the jury had spent two days and two nights considering the case, the attorneys for the defense say, the court informed the de fendant that if a verdict was not reached by 9 o'clock that he would dismiss them. They did not agree and were not dismissed at that time. It is alleged, however, that Judge Pollock went to the juryroom about that hour and, after interrogating the jury as to whether they had reached an agreement, bade the members a formal goodnight and left. Soon afterwards the three jurors who hud held out agaiust con viction agreed on a verdict of guilty. The attorneys for the defense assert this was the result of the visit of Judge Pollock, who left the Impression on the Jury that he intended they should be locked up another night, and that the minority representation was so worn out with the long trial and confine ment that they fell into line for a verdict. These charges will be included in the rea sons why a new trial should be granted,'" and if that is refused they will be embqdled in the appeal to the supreme court. Hill Is Going Again.

DEADWOOD, S. D.An important work com menced this week when Clyde Levitt and P. D. Kelleter, who have been sent out by the govern ment, proceeded with the examination of the forest reserve lands. Both are connected with the division of forest reserve boundaries and have been sent at the request of many settlers on the Missouri, who find that their right to their land is being questioned. Under an act of congress homesteaders on the forest reserve can secure title only to land which is strictly agricultural. Several hundred settlers who took land before the passing of this law now find themselves In danger of los ing their homes. Several of them mailed a petition to the government requesting it to send agents to make the proper examination's. Tin men who have just arrived will examine the boundaries carefully and also the nature of the ground and will decide as to whether or hot the locations are upon agricultural land. It will take most of the winter to com plete this work and the final report will not be made until spring. The question of the title to land comes under the jurisdiction of the department of the interior, but the question as to the nature of the land, which must be first determined, is In the hands of the forest reserve department.

CHEAP POWER FOR TWO RIVER CITIES WHAT HATFIELD'S PLANT MEANS TO WINONA AND LA CROSSE. New Electrical Generating Station on the Black River Will Promote Manu facturing in the Centers Named and Make It Pretty Certain that a Trol ley Line Will Soon Link Them. Special to The Journal. Winona, Minn., Dec. 18.A committee of Winona cltlieuB this week visited the big water power being developed on th.e Black river near Hatfield. On their return J. Booth declared that probably one of the first uses to which this power will be put when developed will be to operate an electric railway between Winona and L& Crosse by way of Galesville, Mr. Booth says ,the waterpower will have a tremendous influence in promoting the Inter ests of both Winona and La Crosse In fur nishing cheap power for manufacturing Insti tutions aud securing the location of many new Industries. The plan for bringing the power from Hatfield to La Crosse and Winona is to build the power lines on a triangle, one side going from Hatfield to La Crosse, another from Hatfield to Winona, and the third connecting La Crosse, and Winona. Thus if one line was ever laid out the two cities could still secure power from the other. Location and Sinews." The location is one of the finest natural ones in the northwest for the development of a large waterpower, nature having provided all necessary requisites. There is a great basin with high banks and granite foundations, and the company will construct a dam across the river. within 300 feet of the station of Hat field. This dam will be seventy-five feet high. l'Vom the reservoir a canal will be constructed for two miles down the river, where a fall of ninety feet will be obtained and where the main powerhouse will be located. The funds for the enterprise have been pro vided. Working plans have been completed and will be submitted to contractors the present month, and it is expected the enterprise will be completed and the company ready to fur nish power for Winona and La Crosse in about ten months, or at least in 1907. New River Industry. A new Industry is thriving on this section of the Mississippi river this winterthe seining of carp end buffalo fish for the eastern market The bnsintss has been reduced to something of a system, and once a week a carload of these fish is shipped to New York. It is only in comparatively recent years that the German fcarp has become a denizen of the Mississippi, but once .Introduced here it has bred rapidly, until it is now to be found in great numbers all along the upper Mississippi. In facl so rapid has been the spread of this fish that sportsmen have become somewhat alarmed lust it should drive out the more gamey ami betler specimens of fish in the river such as the black bass and pickerel. The permission to seine these flsh and the ready mtrket provided for them in the east is seeming to splve partially the problem as to how they shall be disposed of. In this seining the use of a net with not less than two and a quarter- inch meshes is required, and it is also required that the fishermen licensed to use the seine must throw back into the river any eamee fish that are taken.

You can say what Three sizes: 10c, 25c, 50c. ^x^ 1 3 The quicker you rub it on, and the more of it you use,the sooner the sprain will be gone. Even if Omega Oil gets you back to work one day quicker than other remedies, itwill pay for itself several times, but it generally relieves a sprain, strain or bruise a week before anything else, and a week's wages amounts to a good deal to most people.

D.The law firm of Palda & Burke of this city has been retained by the town of Alexander in McKenzie court to institute a contest on the recent election, which it will seek to have declared void, in the hope of re taining the county seat two years more at least. Alexander was named as the temporary county seat of the new county by Governor Saries, but at the November election the question of locat ing, the county seat either at Schaefer or Stone house was submitted to the voters. In order to secure the county seat it was necessary that one of these towns should have more than half the total number 6f votes cast. When the ballots were counted it was found that Schaefer had five more than needed to secure removal. Some twenty voters at Alexan der were refused the right to vote because the election board ran out of official ballots. This is to be used as an argument for the nullification of tho result, and if the election is set aside Alexander wUl retain the county seat until an other election is held two years hence.

STATE^MUTUAL E ASSURANCE COMPANY OF WORCES- TER, MASS., has-^aeyised'-an ideal policy for pure protection, at the lowest possible cost. For-a low premium the policy agrees to pay a beneficiary a stated monthly inebme during his or her whole life. Suppose you: are now 'giving your wife a monthly allowance of $100.00. Such a policy assures her that income as long as she lives. Even if you die tomorrow and she lives a hundred years, that monthly income continues until ner death. Or suppose you have two or three daughters. Tou can, at little cost, assure them a monthly income of, say $30.00 each during life. They can never become entirely dependent on another whatever the vicissitudes of fortune, or the failures or bad faith of friends, relatives or trustees, they will always be sure of the necessaries of life. Don't forget that it's a monthly, not yearly, income. The1 former may be lost or stolen-the first month of the year the latter will each month in the year. It is the ideal protection. "Would such a'policy be valuable to you? Is its possession worth a UrtiA effort and a little energy? Then at least investigate it now!
