On his arrival here from Grand Forks Deputy Deichert made inquiry and as a result of his investigation got out search warrants and, in com pany with the city marshal, drove out to the farm home of James Shell, one of the parties complained of in the matter. Mr. Shell lives near Antler creek, about three miles northwest of this place. Shell was at home and Deputy Deichert told him the reason for the visit and that he was accused of molesting the beav er colony destroying dams and hous es and killing beaver. Shell denied the charges in toto. He was then served with the warrant and invited to accompany the officers in a search of the premises. The top floor of the house was searched in such a thor ough manner that Shell, being con-: vinced that the searchers would dis-1 cover *1I the facts, admitted that he' had, a beaver pelt in his possession. He said however, that the animal in question had been crippled by his dog, that it was shot to put it out of misery, and that it would, have died in any case.

DAKOTA Grand Porks, Nov. 21.—While the subscriptions for the silver service for the battleship North Dakota have been coming pretty good the past week, Judging from lists published In the state exchanges, there are a number of very substantial sums yet to be sent in. In many instances those in charge are waiting to com* plete their county allotment before depositing with the treasurer. Cass and Orand Forks counties have their sums nearly ready, Grand Forks will secure their allotted sum within an other week, especially if Larimore is heard from. This is the only town in the county so far that has not sent in any subscriptions. Judging from the Fargo papers Cass county is doing just as well. The secretary, Col. B. F. Brockoff, makes the re quest now, that everything possible be in by December first from all the counties In the state. About that time, the committee, desires to call a meeting and give the final order for the silver service, and it is Imperative they know how much money is on hand and how much more must be looked for, at that -time, so that ar rangements can be made with the silversmiths In regard to the value of the service, etc. Do not wait now for a soliciting committee to visit you. If your name is not on the list, send a check to Mr. Brockoff. A recent note from Q. Von L. Mey er, secretary of the navy, .to Hon. H. C. Hansbrough in regard to what the navy department thinks proper for such a silver service as Is contem plated for the North Dakota, has been forwarded to Secretary Brockoff, and states that "a consensus of opin ion among naval officers, that large pieces, such as candelabra, punch bowls, salvers, etc., are,always pre ferable to small pieces which are li able to be lost or fall before the cov etous eye of souvenir hunters. The most costly silver service presented to any battleship of late date was early In the fall to the Minnesota, and It was noticeable how many small pieces were in the gift. Judging from the opinion of many of the committee, the North Dakota gift will be more practical, and the judg ment of the navy department, navy officers and those competent to choose what is appropriate will be carefully considered in the final selection of the silver.

Deichert, chief deputy game warden came up from Grand Forks last week to investigate the complaints that parties In the neighborhood were mo lesting the several colonies of beav er located on Antler creek, west and northwest of this city. The game of ficers had been notified that the dams were being destroyed and that the animals, which are absolutely pro tected by the terms or the statute, were being killed for their pelts. The Identity of the Informant is not known here, but it is a fact that many of the residents of this section, besides being law abiding citizens, are extremely anxious that the beav er colonies here should be kept from harm and allowed to thrive and mul tiply, as they have shown they will do if given the proper protection. »4i.*fm.»it^^fww ft made no difference how the beaver was killed or why, even if there was any likelihood of his version being true, that the provisions of the law were such that it was an offense against the statute to have a beaver pelt in one's possession. Shell was arrested and placed un der bonds of $200 to appear in court on December 10 to answer for his of fense. Anderson Broke Dam. Deichert then visited the home of Nels Anderson, another farmer liv ing a mile and a half further west. Anderson was not at home, but after a wait of about half an hour he was seen approaching. He was charged with the same offense as that brought home to Shell and denied his guilt, so far as killing beaver was concern ed, but admitted that he had disturb ed the dams, giving as his reason for so doing that the dams caused the water to rise to such a height in the creek that it injured his farm and caused him serious inconvenience in getting from one part of his farm to the other. In spite of the fact that the rumor connected him with the killing of beaver, a search develop ed no proof and Deputy Deichert had to content himself for the present with giving Anderson a warning to observe closely the letter of the game law. The Beaver Colonise. The beaver colonies here are among the few in the state. There are several dams and the number of beaver has increased to about 50. The beaver originally came down the creek from Canada and for a few years were quite a curiosity. Even yet many people go «rat to the dams to see the busy animals^ or endeavor to see: them. The beavers are very shy and wary and it is exceedingly difficult to get a chance to watch them at their work. There are other colonies of beaver in the Kenmare district, several small colonies in the Turtle mountains and a.thriving one near Coal Harbor.

In the latter section an attempt was made at the third or bottom gal lery at the earnest request of Duncan McDonald, president of the United Mine Workers of Illinois, and nine other officers of the organization. The melancholy of the situation here was accentuated today W the weather. Rain fell all night and dur ing the forenoon turned to snow. Scarcely a kinsman of the missing was at the scene at any time. Bar efforts to explore underground con tinued with "unabated vigor. Dozens of volunteers worked against the most exasperating odds to extend the limit of their explorations.

CENTRAL AMERICA IS READY FOR A GENERAL WAR San Francisco, Nov. 22.—(Special) —Senor Don Carlos de Selva, a veter an Nicaraguan and Honduran soldier and journalist, is in seclusion here, a refugee of the Central American rev olution. In an interview last night he described Dictator Zelaya as the enemy of all Americans. He said: "Central America is ready for a general war. The neutrality of Hon duras alone has prevented war be tween Nicaragua and Salvador. If the vigilance of the United States is relaxed for a moment they are ready to fall to. "Honduras is on the verge of a revolution. The success of the revo lutionists in Nicaragua will mean fighting in Honduras. I have been with the government in Honduras, but have fought Zelaya always for he is a foe to progress and the people. "Zelaya was educated in France and has all the graces of a French man. Face to face with Americans he pretends a friendship that it would seem nothing could break but secretly he hates all Americans. "But Juan Estrada, he is a born fighter. He is not after the presi dency of Nicaragua. That is for Ro dolfo Espinoza, former minister to Washington." RIVER BUSINESS CLOSED Washburn, N.
