Extract from the Aberdeen
Daily News of April 5, 1900:
The Peterson High Class En
tertainers gave an entertain
ment at the opera house last
night to a packed house. Their
reputation was known in Aber
deen ahead of them and for
this reason the people turned
out and filled the opera house
and none were disappointed.
For a comedy and vaudeville
company it is the best seen in
Aberdeen in years. The enter
tainment is strictly clean and
refined and the audience is
kept in laughter from the be
ginning to the end of the per
formance. The company ap
pears again tonight and will
undoubtedly be greeted by a
packed house.
The company will appear at
the opera house Friday and
Saturday, April 20 and 21.
Special matinee Saturday at 2
o'clock. Get your seats early
at the Magnet. Prices 15, 25
and 35 cents.

Manager Doles says the city
ought to erect a band stand at

Nels Oslund and Peter John
son had quite an experience at
Battle Lake a day or two this
week, having gone down to the
lake to do some spearing at
night. They caught some 900
pounds of pickerel. And had
gotten them to the depot and
were about retiring for a little
rest before the train arrived,
when they were placed under
arrest, charged with, violating
the fishing laws of Minnesota.
The gentlemen telegraphed for
a little money—having of
course taken none with them
and set up a fight in the justice
court, and knocked out the
Stupid Jay, Martin Anderson,
who had been instrumental in
having the game warden au
thorize the arrests.
To begin with the Minnesota
game and fish laws, allow the
catching of pickerel and suck
ers anyway seen fit and at any
time of year in that state.
The pickerel is very destructive
of all other kinds of fish and
the sucker consumes great
quantities of fish eggs, hencc
the law provides for the des
truction of these species of fish
in this way. But this "beef
head" thought he saw an op
portunity to gather in $20 in
fees and went after it,swearing
in court that he saw a pike
among the lot of fish, while as
a matter of fact there was not
a single fish otherthan pickerel
in the whole lot. And when
they could not lie Oslund and
Johnson out of fees, they tried
to wring in Illinois state law
on them. But the outfit were
completely knocked out as they
ought to have been, for the
Wahpeton gentlemen had in
no wise violated law.
The gentlemen have been
talking about prosecuting the
"jay" who caused the trouble
and lied to try to make his
outrage stick, but we are not
sure as to just what they will
do. They ought surely to make
the meat head sweat.
The whole lot of fish were
lost—spoiled, in fact, while the
Battle Lake "bull head" was
looking for unjust fees, which
he did not get.
