Cannot Remove Station from Winni peg Junction—Injunction la .Granted by Judge. The Wlnnlocsr Junction case, which relates to the removal of the Northern Paci*c passeng«-.' and freight depot was before Judge Baxter for hearing and argument, at Fergus Flails, yester day. C. S. Marden appeared for the vil lage and L. T. Chamberlain for the Northern Pacific railway company. The company is planning to remove its station to a point about a mile from the present location, and the residents of th village, whose property will be rendered almost valueless by the r» moval of the station, are raising seri ous objections. Judge Baxter recently Issued a restraining order forbidding the company to make any movement In the premises pending a hearing on the question of the Issuing of ,an in junction. After listening to argu rr. ^nts, the court decided to issue an injunction covering much the same ground that is covered by the restrain ing order. This injunction directs that the company refrain from removing Its station, and continue give Um-vil lage daily passenger train service and reasonable freight train service until such time as the railroad «u*l ware house commission can mak^ an inves tigation and decide whether the station shall be removed or otherwise. 8uceossful Church Enterprise.

There was a big demand for the delicious candies made by the Kink's Daughters. So cially and in other trays the enterprise was a great success. Northwestern Hospital.

MOORHEAD NOTES. ft- Barn, to Mr. and Mrs. Charles GH1 berry of Kragnes, last .Monday, a daughter and to Mr. aiid Mrs." Ed. Wolfe, a son. The body of James Williams, who committed suicide a day 'or two ago by taking a dose of strychnine was sent to the unfortunate man's son at Lakota. N. D., yesterday, the expenses being borne by Richard Williams of Sabin, a brother of the deceased. The body will be interred by the side of the wife of Mr. Williams, who died several months ago. M.

Several workmen were engaged to day sheathing the new Olsen ware house and elevator with... ornamental sheet Iron. Married at St. Paul, last Saturday, Philip Kiefer of Moorhead and Miss Leona Wefder of Barncsville. The brickwork for the new Northern Pacific freight depot, at the Sixth street crossing, has progressed consid erably during the past day or two, so that the outlines of the large structure can easily be seen. A Citizen Why not Agent Stodder have a notice, "trespassing not allow ed," prominently placed in the fenced parking at the passenger depot, and then have a policeman instructed to keep watch for a few days and inform those careless individuals who seem to want to destroy the property, that walking across the grounds is trespass and then if persisted in, make an ar rest or two and test the matter It is silly to wait until a path has been trodden down and a footpath establish ed—a few strangs of barbed wire might prove effective to some people. The women of the Methodifct church, Moorhead, are busy preparing for a chicken pie supper next Friday night. The Rector's Guild met at the rec tory with Mrs. Ai T. Young, this after noon.

Twenty-one persons made proof on their homesteads last week before Judge Sunderall, and perhaps as many more before E. A. R' -nger. Mr. and Mrs. Tripp returned Wed nesday after spending a few weeks at their old home in T'ichigan, and we are all glad to have them home again in Hettinger.

JUDGE RYAN H.4S POWER TO COMMIT JUDGE 5. POLLOCK HANDS DOWN A DECISION TODAY DE NYING MOTION IN ARREST OF JUDGMENT tH CA8EY CASa Tito motion in arrest of Judgment ft the case of Effie Savage and Berw Cas ey, made by their attorney, E5. E. Sharp, on th# grounds that Judge Mar tin Ryap, who held the couple to the district court, had no Jurisdiction, was dented this afternoort by Judge C. A. Pollock In district court. Following Is the order of th« court in full: Decision of Court. State of North Dakota, County of Cass. In District Court, Third Judicial Disirlct. The State of North Dakota vs. Ethel Savage and B. Ca^ey, defendants: The defendants in this action being oefore the court for sentence, move in arrest of judgment, and allege among other things, that the county court had no Jurisdiction to bind them over to this court. The question presented is this: Has the police magistrate of the city of Fargo Jurisdiction to sit as a committing magistrate in cases of fel ony I answer that he has, and assign the following reasons: Paragraph 113 of the constitution permits the legislature to provide for the election of police magistrates in cities, who shall be ex-officio justices of the peace in the county In which such citiesf are located. The legislature did create such of fice. Being so created, such magis trates, being ex-offlclo justice's of the peace, have all the powers possessed by other Justices of the peace In the county, in cases of felony. Section 112 of the constitution pro vides fo? the election of justices of tht^ peace iii cach county of the state, the number to be limited by law. and such as shall be necessary for the proper administration of Justice. After pro viding for Jurisdiction In certain civil matters, the following language Is used: "And-, in counties where no county court with criminal jurisdiction exists, they shall have such Jurisdiction to hear and determine cases of misde meanor as may*"be provided by law." And later in the same section, ap pears the following: "The legislative assembly shall have power to abolish the office of Justice of the peace and confer that jurisdic tion upon judges of the county courts or elsewhere." I know of no law abolishing the of fice of justices of the peace. The reference to the jurisdiction of county courts in this connection, as will be seen from the language quoted above, relates wholly to the trial, and with reference to the Jurisdiction to hear and determine cases ov' misde meanor where no county court exists. No clause whatever In section 112, or in any other part of the constitution, takes away from Justices of the pcace the power to sit as committing magis trates in cases of felony. In other words, the legislature had the right to confer such Jurisdiction upon Justices of the peace in cases of felony. This power has been amply given, and jus tices of the peace have jurisdiction to sit as committing magistrates in cases of felony. It therefore follows that the police magistrate of th!-^ city has like power, for the reason that he is, under the con«titutiOB, eX-OfHclo a Jus tice of the peace. .*v.j M' «.

LIFE INSURANCE CASE GOES TO JURY V JENS PAULSON VS. MODERN WOODMEN OF AMERICA CON CLUDED THIS FORENOON—THE JURY GET8 CHARGE AT 2:30 AND WERE OUT AT A LATE HOUR TODAY.- Whether Soren Paulson committed suicide or died a natural death Is now up to the jury to ceclde in the case of Jens Paulson vs. the Modern Wood men of America and the settling of this point will settle the question as to whether or not the M. W. A. lodge must pay a policy of 82,600 held by Jens Paulson on the life of his broth er. The defense put on nothing but de positions as their testimony, and th« story which these depositions brought out as to the manner of death of Soren Taulson is as follows: Soren Paulson was running a ranch near Bowman, Mont., and one after noon a deputy sheriff and a game war den armed with a warrant for his ar rest appeared at his ranch. The offi cers hid near his cabin until Paulson, who was hunting In the mountains, came home. After he had entered the ranch house where he lived alone the officers went In and arrested him. The reason of his arrest is an entire mys tery in this case as the defense for some reason could not tetl although they stjted that they believed it was for breaking the game laws. The officers ard Paulson then went to a near by ranch where they stop ped for the night and during the night the officers were awakened by Paul son's groans. He was having convul sions and in a few minutes died. A post mortem examination showed that there was strychnine In his sto mach and a bottle partly filled with strychnine was found under the bed, but the plaintiff proved that Paulson had been troubled with pleurisy and they contend that if he did take strychnine that he took tt In mistake for medicine. liRAND OPERA STAR PLEASES FARMS MME LANGENDORFF GIVES CMI LIGHTFUL RECITAL IN ARTISTS COURSE LAST EVENING—LOCAL MUSIC LOVERS WERE CHARMED BY THE MAGNIFICENT fttNQK*. A large audience assembled to hear Mme. Frieda Langendorff. one of the younger grand opera soloists of the Metropolitan operahouse, New York, at Stone s music hall last night, the occasion being the third of the artist recital course under the auspices of the Fargo College Conservatory of Music, and a charmed and delighted gathering of music lovers it was. Mme. Langcndorff Is especially strong in high dramatic parts, having that rare feminine treasure, a full, round oratorio voice. She opened her pro gramme with an aria, Ah! mon fils, from the opera Le Prophete, and be fore its conclusion the singer's unaf fected friendliness gained for her the spontaneous favor of her auditors. A group of German songs was splendidly sung and the constant applause which followed their rendition proved the pleasure she gave. In the Cry of Ra chel. by Mary Turner Salter, the sing er showed her a note painter in bold colors, nothing of the miniature in Langendorflf. The programme was a long one, but very acceptable in va riety. It closed with the aria My Heart to Hear Thy Voice, from the opera Samson et Daliia. It is all suf ficient to say that EJ. A. Boehmer, of the conservatory, accompanied the great singer an# it was easy to see that the latter was perfectly satisfied. FAIR ASSOCIATION p. A i, :'-i APPEAL FROM JUSTICE COURT, WHERE HANCOCK BROS. WERE DEFEATED—ASSOCIATION SUES TO RECOVER $200 FOR SHARE OF 8TOCK The case of the North Dakota State Fair association vs. Hancock Bros, wa begun in district court this afternoon, after the Paulson case had gone to tho jury.
