Waltham Watches. CHARLES CAVALIER. AFTER A BRIEF ILLNESS THE VETERAN NORTH DAKOTAN DIES AT HIS HOME IN PEMBINA —THE OLDEST WHITE SETTLER IN THE STATE AND FIRST COL LECTOR OF CUSTOMS FOR DIS TRICT OF MINNESOTA. Pembina, N. D., July 2S.—Chas. E. Cavileer died this morning after a few hours' illness, aged S4. Chiles Cavileer, known far and wide as the "Father of Pembina," en joyed the unique distinction of being not only the oldest living settler of this portion of the Red River valley, but likewise of the whole state of North Dakota. A full and complete history of the life of this prominent and influential pioneer of pioneers, since coming to this .portion would present to our minds most clearly the wonderful growth and development that has come to this favored portion* of the republic. The interest that naturally attends the narration of the life history of the pioneer is, in his case, made doubly strong by the fact that in all the many years of his resi dence here, he has taken a leading and prominent part in the political business and official life of this, his adopted home.

Mr. Cavileer was born in Springfield, Clark county, Ohio, March 6, ISIS, ajid js the son of Charles and Rachel (Trease) Cavileer, natives of Maine and Pennsylvania, respectively. Receiv ing in his native place the rudiments of common-school education, at the age of 17 he removed to Mount Carmel, Wa/bash county, Illinois, where he learned the saddler's trade. There he remained, working as a journey man, until 1S41. In that year he moved to Minnesota and for a time made his home at Red Rock, near St. Paul. In 1S45, in that young city, Mr. Cavalier established the pioneer har ness shop of the Sjtate of Minnesota. This he continued for two years. In 1848, in company with a Mr. Dewey, he opened the first drag store in St. Paul and the state. In 1848 Mr. Cavifeer was appointed by Governor Alexander Ramsey to the position of first terri torial librarian. This office he con tinued to hold until, in 1851. he was appointed by President Fillmore the first collector of customs for the dis trict of Minnesota.

He settled down to his official duties, which at that time, not only had to do with the cus toms. but he was also representative of all the other civil branches of the United States government. August 17, 1S51, in company with Commodore Norman W. Kittson, he arrived at what is now Pembna. In 1853 Mr. Cavileer, in partnership with N. W. Kittson and W. H. Forbes, engaged in the fur trade. At the end of three years, Mr. Forbes having withdrawn. Mr. Cavileer with Mr. Kittson, formed a partnership with Messrs. Culver, Far-\ rington and Sargent and engaged in. some line of business. This continued for two years. These five years were doubtless the most exciting ones in a life replete with adventurous incidents. It was during this time that he made regular', trips to St Paul, with trains of from 80 to 100 "Red River carts" loaded with furs and pelts. These trips were long and wearisome and often dangerous from bands of roving Indians and stampeding herds of buf falo. Mr. Cavileer, in 1863, returned to Pembina, he having, in the discharge of his business cares, resided both at St. Joseph, aibout thirty miles to the westward, at the foot of the Pembina Mountains, and at Winnipeg. In 1804 he was commissioned postmaster, a po sition which he held until 1884, when the weight of increasing years caused him to resign in favor of his son, Ed mund. The original plat of the city of Pembina was laid out by the sub ject of this sketch and this was added to in the shaipe of an extensive addi tion in 1S78, when railroad connections with the centers of trade showed the need for enlarging the limits of the city. In his earlier Hays Mr. Cavileer was a regular correspondent of the Smith sonian Institute, of Washington, D. His sketches of pioneer days and graphic descriptions of scenes and characters are the delight of his friends and neighbors, and the old settlers generally. These sketches, wliich have been mostly for local pap ere and pio neer society meetings, are in the plain, blunt, straightforward and to the point style of the western plainsman, but have a deep undercurrent of humor wholly his own. Manch 13, 1857, Mr. Cavalier was united in marriage with Miss Isabella Murry, who was then 16 years of- age. She was a lassie of Scottish ancestry, daughter of .Donald and Jean (Herron) Hurry, and was born and lived in the Red River valley of Canadd. T'hey made a visit as a bridal tour to his for mer home in Springfield, Ohio. Mr. and Mi's. Cavileer are the parents of five children: Sarah, who died in in fancy, Edmund K., William M., Albert D„ and Lulah Bel. PREPARE GRAIN SAMPLES.

World' Fair committee publishes elsewhere a list of the prizes offered by the com mittee for the best samples of Burleigh county grains, grasses and vegetables, The conditions could certainly be no better for the collection of a line of these samples than they are this sea son when everything in the line of farm products has. attained a phenom enal growth, and the competition for these prizes should be a spirited one and such an exhibit as could be made of these products this year cannot fail to be of great benefit il attracting at tention to the wonderful and un bounded resources of the state. It is hoped that all will take such an interest in this matter as will result in the best exhibit of the state's products that has ever been made. IF A MAN LIE TO YOU.

The gathering at the recent state convention afforded the veteran news paper man and distinguished orator, Col. Pluminer, an opportunity to greet many old time friends. .The colonel •v mentions a few slopers in 'his "Talk" coluxhn jDtf the Forum as follows: Capt. Charles E. Gregory of Dickin son, came in to attend ifhe convention!. The last time I met the captain was in New York in the fall of 1898. He had just ibeen mustered'out of the stervice. He came back to North Dakota, locaited at Dicki^on, and has been made state's attorney- He and his estimable wife have a chanmlng home in the thriving city of Dickinson. Captain Gregory is a good lawyer, and a very able man. He is an old timer,- and no doubt there are higher honors in store for him. The captain is true in his friendships and generous to-a fault. Who should come in from Burleigh county, but my old friend^Sid Smith. He has a fine farm on Apple Creek, near tMenoken. Hfe came into the Red River valley many years ago—took a homestead north of Wheatland. He then located a pre-emption and a tree claim out in Burleigh county, where he now lives. Sid is prospering, as he richly deserves. He is one of the old timers that nobody who ever met hfm can forget. He is a nephew of the late Mayor Chapin. Hon. Lesie Simpson of Stark is just the same smooth proposition that he was in days of did. I woujd mention Jewell, the able editor of the Bismarck Tribune, but he would accuse me of attempting "to pull his leg." TURNER WINS. THE PRIMARIES IN GRA ND FORKS COUNTY RESULT IN VICTORY FOR TURNER FOR SHERIFF. Grand Forks, N. D., July 28.—The sheriff fight in Grand Forks county is practically over. A. F. Turner winning out, with delegates to spare, over 0. G. Hanson and M. A. Walsh, who were understood to be pulling together. Re publican caucuses were held Saturday evening in the various precincts of the county, and the returns received show that at least 1W delegates |p the county convention to be held in Grand Forks next Thursday are solid for Turner, with many of the precincts yet to be heard from. As there are but 160 del egates to the convention, he is already certain of enough votes to nominate, should the precincts not heard from be solid for the opposition. H.
