0. WARD PASSED
W- o» Ward who has been confined to hli house for the past few months passed away at 1:25 this morning. The Immediate cause of death was congestion of the lungs and bronchial pneumonia. He has been sick for •ome time and friends and relatives had given up hopes of his ultimate recovery. The surviving relatives wilt tiave the sympathy of the entire ^community in their hour of afflic tion.'.'^' THe Tribune's "History of North Dakota" now in press has the fol lowing sketch of the life of HON WILLIAM OSCAR WARD. The importance of the service of men who did this great work of pio I neering and 'preparing this country tor the tremendous development that as taken place in the last genera tion is coming to he more fully ap preciated as their achievements are seen through the vista of years and their deeds loom the larger in com parison with the changed conditions which they made possible. In the midst of the teeming prosperity or today it Is not easy for the people of the state to appreciate the fact that there still live men who wrest ed from the Indians, and from for bidding nature, the right to make their homes and establish their fam- So vast has been ilies in Dakota the result of the work of these pio- .them «M.*d hol.d. t_ be heroe.s an .posterity more remote will regard them as the founders of an empire so rich and populous as to toe esteemed to be the garden of the world. It is fitting and just that the survivors of that heroic band who came here in the early '70's of the last century, who suffer ed in body, mind and fortune in the bitter warfare with nature and the Indians, should have their deeds re corded in the history of the state, whose creation they made possible. Noble among these big figures of men who led the way in the settle ment of the Territory of Dakota, is the Hon. William Oscar Ward, of Bismarck, veteran of the civil war a pioneer in blazing the trail to the opulent Black Hills farmer, stock grower and law maker, who is now passing the evening of his days in that honorable ease with dignity which is the portion of the man who can look back upon a life well spent and full of service to his fellow men. One of the oldest of the permanent settlers of the Missouri Slope coun try, Mr. Ward has had a part in the marvel that has been wrought in the peopling of the prairies he crossed when they were almost untracked. More than thirty years ago he fol lowed the traii to the Black Hills, losing a brother in the attempt to drive the Indians from the path of the white man's progress. He has been identified with every phase of "the progress of the state and is an honored resident of the Capital City. Mr. Ward was born in Albion, Erie county, Pa., May 3, 1839, the son of Jeremiah and Emma (Loomis) Ward. He was the eldest of a family of ten children and his forefathers had long been settled in Connecticut. He was educated in Erie county and later had some schooling in Minnesota, after he came west. As long ago as 1859 he made his way to the west and for a year worked in Iowa, and then going to Minnesota and locating a claim upon which his family came to reside. His early career was that of the farm boy and its peace was rudely broken by the clamor of war, his country calling him to arms in the first year of the war of secession. He enlisted October 11, 1861, in the Fourth Min nesota and served until the close of »#^^#^#»#^#^##^»#»####»#»»—#»«*«»##»*»»»**—»*«*»*'»»*'s hostilities. His war record shows an amount of fighting that indicates the activity of the fighting corps to which he (belonged. He was in many of the great battles of the war, from the seige of Corinth to the march to the sea with Sherman. Among the gen eral engagements in which he a part were the seige and battle of Corinth the various engagements leading up to the seige and capture of Vicksburg the battle of Chattanooga the battle of Altoona, and the suc cession of skirmishes and battles that marked the path of the army of Sherman from Atlanta to the sea. He was honorably discharged Feb ruary 13, 1866. his discharge .papers showing enlistments in the Fourth Minnesota, and in Co. F, U. S. Vet eran Volunteers. He resided in Minnesota after the war until 1872, when he came to Dakota, remaining at Jamestown for a year and then removing to the neighborhood of Bismarck, taking a homestead on Apple Creek. In 1876 he joined the tide of gold seekers to the Black Hills, and in making the journey through the country of the hostile Indians he lost his stock and saw his brother killed by the Sioux. He returned to Minnesota, raised money and invested it in stock which he drove across the plains to his ranch on Apple Creek. He sold his homestead and took a pre-emption on Burnt Creek, where he resided un til two years ago, when he removed with his family to Bismarck, where they have a comfortable home and lllc a tt neers that the next generation will other property.

Mrs. Ward's family was of English stock, her father and mother being born, however, in Phil adelphia and New York, respective ly.
