Rains have fallen through the
northwest during the last forty-eight
hours that have materially changed
the crop prospect. While they have
not fallen everywhere needed, they
have been of vast benefit. The Missouri
slope has enjoyed a good rainfall in
i»e last twenty-four hours. The crops
have been somewhat damaged by dry
weather, but there is no discourage
ment, and it looks as if a fair crop
would be harvested.

THE BRIQUETTE QUESTION.
General Washburn's Representative
Returns From a Trip Through Ger
Minneapolis Journal: William de la
Bere, engineer of the St. Anthony Wat
er Power Co., has returned from an
extended sojourn in Germany, where
he has made an exhaustive study of
the manufacture of fuel briquettes in
the interests of General W. D. Wash
burn who is extensively engaged in lig
nite mining in North Dakota. General
Washburn is greatly interested in a
satifactory substitute for anthracite
coal, and has made many experiments.
Mr. de la Bere has nothing to say at
this time as to the result of his obser
vations in Germany, beyond the fact
that he has learned much that would
be of value in solving the home prob
"We prefer," said General Wash
burn, "to say nothing as to the con
clusions reached by Mr. fie la Bere on
his trip abroad. Just how valuable his
researches were cannot be determined
until he has had an opportunity to
make an application in the country of
the system under which briquettes are
manufactured in Germany. So far we
have reason to believe that, as a result
of .Mr. le la Bere's trip, we will be
able to turn out a finished article in
the shape of a briquette which will be
found in every way adapted to the
needs of this section, especially when
the supply of anthracite runs short.
While abroad, Mr. de la Bere went in
to the subject from every conceivable
General Wj.shburn says that the de
velopment of his lignite beds in North
Dakota is making rapid progess and
that by October his company will be
able to furnish the market with from
1 500 to 2,000 tons daily.
LIGNITE BRIQUETTE PLANT.
It Will be Located at Underwood, a
New Town on W. G. & F. Railroad.
Minneapolis Journal: The plant
which General W. D. Washburn will
erect in North Dakota for the manu
facture of lignite briquettes will be
located at a station to be known as
Underwood on the Washburn and
Great Falls railroad. The station will
be named after F. D. Underwood, for
merly of the Soo road, now general
manager of the Erie road. The town
site was opened a few days ago and
General Washburn has just returned

COLD BLOODED MURDER.
Details of the Cold Blooded Killing of
an Inoffensive Young Man at Bu
The vVilliston Herald gives the fol
lowing detailed account of the myster
ious murder at Buford last week:
"The most foul murder ever com
mitted in this part of the state was
committed at Buford some time Sat
urday night, when John O. Kolbens
vik was, from all appearances, mur
dered in cold blood. The body was
found by George A. Booker, early
Sunday morning and the authorities
were notified and the coroner, sheriff
and states attorney left for there at
once. A jury was at once impaneled
and a coroners' inquest was held which
closed Wednesday and one Tom Zim
merman was placed under arrest and
lodged in the county Jail and will be
given a hearing Saturday. Zimmer
man and another party were in a pok
er game with Kolbensvik until & late
hour Saturday night and were the
last seen with him. It is positively
known that Zimmerman knew more
than he was willing to tell as his story
was not the best and was very unsat
isfactory for an innocent man. He
lived next door to where the murder
was committed and when he heard
of his window and saw some one
ing on the ground arid saw some one
hurrying up the street, but he did not
go to see who was shot but went back
to bed and remained there till morn
ing. His story was very flimsy and
the general opinion is that the man
met his death as a result of trouble
which is supposed to originate in the
poker game. From appearances the
man was shot while standing in his
door and was shot from the outside as
he fell across the sidewalk and the
bullet was found inside the building.

John O. Kolbensvik, the murdered
man, is a young man 22 years of age
and was born in Yellow Matson coun
ty, Minn. His mother is dead and
he left home about six years ago and
has been in North Dakota most of the
time since. He has been at Buford
three or four weeks running a soft
drink establishment and was known
as a very peaceable young man. Great
indignation prevails and if the right
parties are found they will get the
full benefit of the law.
