J, hint Avenue and 8ec«nd Street North- Pfceae Brutal Murder Committed in "Take my gun, I just shot a man," coolly remarked Alexander Anderson as he stepped up to the bar in the Club saloon in Moorhead shortly after 12 o'clock last night and handed the bartender a 32-calibre revolver. The victim of Anderson's deadly aim was Thomas H. Crume, a bartender employed In the Svea saloon on Fourth street In Moorhead. Crume was strifck twice and died almost instantly after receiving the wouncls, either one of which would have been fatal. The stories of the crime differ in de tail but even the story told by Ander son this morning indicates that it was one of the most cold blooded til tie history of Moorhead. It appears that Crume, Henry Snider and August Werth had been in Fargo until a late ho^ir and had returned to Moorhead together. They went di rectly to the Svea saloon where the proprietor, A. W. Monson, was behind the bar. Soon after the three men had entered t]£e saloon Anderson ap peared and asked Crume to give him a drink. 'There is the proprietor," responded Crume, "Ask him." "You ask him," Anderson Is alleged to have replied, "you cheap «. of After considerable swearing "when he had been refused a drink, Ander son left the saloon. In the meantime Crume started to close up. Werth, who is a farmer residing at Hanna ford, this state, was standing directly behind Crumfe when the latter stepped into the doorway of the saloon and when Anderson again made his ap pearance. Without warning Anderson drew his revolver and fired at Crume. The lat ter stumbled backwards a few feet without falling and then the second shot was fired. Then Crume fell to the floor. Monson and Werth sprang to the assistance of Crume and asked him if he was hurts The wounded man replied faintly: "Yes." It was the last word he spoke. Anderson coolly walked south to the Club saloon where he turned over his revolver to the bartender and was ar rested a few minutes later. He was taken at once to the county jail. Murderer's 8tory. To a Forum reporter Anderson told the story of the murder this morn ing. "When I don't get justice I do just as I did last night," he said. "You have never done anything like this before, hav* you?" asked Deputy, FAii'iiii nii.iiiii mmsr Graduates Will Have 8am* Standing As Those of the State Institutions. Fargo college will now take rank as one of the leading academic insti tutions of the northwest and pupils lapleting the course of study at the al Institution will have as high a standing as those who finish in the academic courses of the universities of Minnesota and North Dakota. This fact has been determined by ").• departments of education in the states of North Dakota and Minnesota ••urI it has been definitely decided by i-presentatives of these departments that graduates of Fargo college re viving the degree of B. A. or B. S. a entitled to teachers certificates which give them the right to teach in both the high schools and common .schools of the two states. Heretofore it has been necessary for them to take an examination in order to secure teacher's certificates in either state, but since the work done at the college now includes both pedagogy and psy chology it satisfies the requirements of the law in each state and a diploma, from Fargo college will also entitle the recipient to a teacher's certificate. Word to this effect was received some time ago from Superintendent of Public Instruction Olson of Min nesota and this morning a similar message came from State Superin tendent of Schools Stockwell of North Dakota. The change will be very beneficial to the local* Institution as those who intend to make teaching their profes sion will now feel that a course at Fargo college will fit them for their work just as well as one at the larger Institutions of learning, and it is ex pected that theresult will be an in creased attendance.

JUXE r? V Sheriff Crossman, who was present a: the interview in the Jail. The prisoner started, but collected himself lh an instant and replied it the negative. "Crume slapped me," said Andersor* "I went out of the saloon and got thinking it over. I came to the con elusion that I had rights as an Ameri can citizen and I called him out an shot him. I gave hlrn no cause slap me. No, I was not drunk." Anderson talked freely of his pas life. He said he was born in Pet county, Ont., and is 41 years of agt He has relatives in the United State but claims that he does not know jus where they are now living. He ,ha been working for a farmer name Cooper, living a few miles fron Jamestown, and stated that he ha had considerable trouble about getting his wages. The Jamestown pollc had taken a revolver away from him a few days ago and soon after he ha' started for Fargo, arriving here las night. "I split wood for the agent at Ma pleton yesterday to get something eat," sad Anderson, "and landed J: P'argo broke. I had to put up watch for $3 when I got here." "What did you do with the money? was asked. "I bought a revolver," was the reply "I did not consider myself safe with out one." Pictures were taken of Anderso this morning and they will be sent ou to the different cities In which the po lice suspect he may have operates The authorities are inclined to th opinion that this is not Anderson' first offense and that he may be con netted with other affairs in different parts of the country. Judge Baxter was informed of th crime early this morning and indicat ed that he would probably call a spec lal term of the grand jury to conside the case. Coroner Kaess summoned a jur and held an inquest in Beck Wright's undertaking parlors this al ternoon. But three witnesses were ex amlned at the Inquest and the vei diet was reached quickly. It was established that Anderso was not drunk at the time of th shooting and that there had been n provocation. ,The verdict returned by the Jur follows: Fred Thoihas H. Crume came to h! death at 12:10 a. m., June 2, 1906, a gun shot through the heart at tl: front door of A. W.

N. p., June 2.—To The For um: The item purporting to be a telegram from New Rockford publish ed in last night's Forum entitled, "Queried Spalding," is lacking in one very material element In good news paper work, and I therefore ask per mission to correct It in your columns. That is, it is lacking in truth. When I commenced my address I invited the audience to question me. One person .who designated Mr. Mc-' Kenzie as the "King of North Dako ta," and said he would stay with him even if he knew he was guilty of cold blooded murder, informed me he would like to ask some questions. I told him I would yield him Ave minutes in which to ask his questions and then I would answer them if they were material. He proceeded to ask ques tions for a part £f his allotted time and until the audience called him down. Tou say he asked why I had voted for the salary grab and that I excused myself oh tne ground that only five members of the house had voted against the proposition. No such question was asked and rto such ans wer given, and no mention of a vote of Ave members on that or any sim ilar proposition was made. No ques tion was asked as to what I was doing during the sixteen years I had been holding office, nor why I did not dis cover until turned down two years ago that my former associates were so bad. I have held office just four years since statehood, and that not by the grace of many of the gentle men whom we are opposing. I was asked no question about Canadian wheat tariff and did not refer to it in any such manner as you suggest In The Forum. This item tor untruthfulness and misrepresentation Is a fair sample of what The Forum and some other pa pers have to say about the different meetings I hoM.- i 1st.

Wednesday. ."Prom th»*.inquirles mode for cat alogues and general interest manifest ed by the breeders throughout the state It indicates that a good crowd can be expected In attendance at the sale of pure bred Shorthorns to be held Wednesday at the agricultural college." says Secretary Richards of the N. D. Live Stock association. "Now is the time to purchase pure bred Shorthorns," he continued, "If any one Is planning to raise this kind of cattle, or in fact any of the beef breeds. Pure bred cattle of the beef breeds have been lower for some time (past than we can expect to see them again. Prices are beginning to stif fen because of a brisker demand, or in other words we are entering a period of higher prices. It will be much harder for those with little money to make it go a long ways in the pur chase of pure bred cattle from this time on than it has been in the past. "Farmers and breeders are notorious for use fit very poor judgment in this matter of knowing just when to make their start in any line of live stock production. Most of them lack faith to buy on a low market, but wait, and buy when the market is high, and let the other fellow reap the profit. The price of cattle will have its ups and dow/is, but they will never get so low, but what there is a profit In pro ducing them if properly handled. "The cattle to be sold at this sale are a good useful lot, and not so fancy as to be outside of the reach of any farmer in the state who wants to pro duce better cattle. "S. Fletcher Matteson, writes that he is obliged to substitute Victor of Springdale 2nd for Sprlugdale Chief 2nd as catalogued because the latter is out of condition. Victor Springdale 2nd 247949 is an excellent individual an4 the writer when making selec tions for the sale was very much im pressed with the merits of this bull and urged Mr. Fletcher very strongly to consign him, but he preferred t« keep him for his own use. "Victor Springdale 2nd Is sired by Duke of Elmwood 148979, dam Miss Roscdale of Maplehili. He was shown at the International Live Stock Show at Chicago. This indicates that h»* must possess unusual merit. "Those who wish to secure the bene fit of the reduced rates must not for get to secure a receipt when purchas ing. their ticket to Fargo.
