Barrett, a senior student at Ames (Iowa) Agricultural college, was a recent arrival in the city and has purchased a section of land, just west of the Schwabe place, east of the state penitentiary. He was induced to come to Burleigh county by Frank J. Fox, of the Fox Land Company. Mr. Barrett was accompanied by two other Ames students who win as sist him in getting started with his farming of the section. He brought with him one of the best gasoline breaking outfits that was obtainable and plans on breaking at least 500# acres of the farm this spring. He pur poses to put in a large crop of flax, and will make a big alfalfa field out of the bottom lands. Later on he intends to employ diversified methods and raise cattle, hogs, and corn, and get away from tha sinrle crop proposition. In the fall 11»-. Barrett contemplates erecting a set of new farm buildings. These will adjoin tne main road run ning east of Bismarck.

ATKINS' STORY OF STEAM ER BEING CAPTURED BY GUERIL LAS IN EARLY SIXTIES WAS ORROBORATEO BY CAPT. MARSH, WHOSE BOAT WAS ALSO CAPTURED AT SAME POINT IN MIS- An interesting coincidence was re lated to a representative of the Tri bune by Capt. Grant Marsh of Bis marck and Capt. C. J. Atkins of Cando, which will be of great interest to the readers of the Tribune. Capt. Atkins was one of the early pilots on the Missouri river. He made his first trip past the present site of Bismarck in 1863 when he came up on the "Robert Campbell, Jr." from St. Louis to Fort Benton. At that time there was no sign" of any habita tion where the capital city is now lo cated as that territory was all virgin niairie, the home of the buffalo and the haunt of the Indian. Capt Atkins told a Tribune reporter Friday even ing that while the northern end of the Missouri was dangerous on account of Indians that the southern end was just as dangerous on account of gueril las, and he told of an experience he had had on the steamer "Live Oak. There was a tombstone aboard the boat consigned to Berlin. Mo., Mr. At kins who was pilot advised the cap tain not to land, but the latter did not anticipate any great danger. The boat landed there and no sooner had been made fast to shore than it was boarded by guerillas who robbed all of the passengers and then allowed the boat to proceed un stream. Captain Atkins also said that while his boat had been allowe- to go, that another boat had been held up that same day by the guerillas and three men shot to death. It has since developed that the second boat was one on which Capt. Garsh was mate, and the latter verified Capt. Atkins' story and told the story of the second capture by the guerillas. Capt. Marsh was mate on the Mar cella' and had put out from Waverly. Mo., a short time after the "Live Oak" on which Capt. Atkins was pilot. They had proceeded but a short distance up stream however when they de cided to put in,at Dovers Landing, a little town only a short distance south of Berlin, Mo., for coal, as there was a small coal m»e at that place. As the "Marcella"- neared shore there was seen to be several cords of wood ranked up along the beach. This was somewhat unusual, but no suspicion was attached to the incident. How ever, as soon as the boat was made fast a gang of guerillas, under the same men that had captured Capt. Atkins' boat earlier in the day, sprang out from behind the wood pfle where they had been hiding, and with leveled revolvers and rifles compelled all to surrender. They then proceeded to rob the boat and the passengers. Down south of there four passengers had been shipped aboard the "Mar cella"—four federal soldiers who were en route home on a furlough. It must be remembered that this occurred early in the slties and that the Civil was was at its height.

LUCAS CO. who was mate on the "Marcella" ha** stowed the soldiers away in the hold of the boat where they would not be discovered. However some of the pas sengers on the steamer informed the guerillas that there were some federal soldiers aboard and they were found an dtaken ashore. One of them was a mere boy, about 18 years of age and his home was in Lexington. So the guerilla leader told him to get out of sight and let him get away. How ever .the other three were lined up on the bank and shot down by the band its. The "Marcella" was then al lowed to proceed. There is increased interest in this occurrence when it is known that Capt. Atkins met Capt. Marsh in Sf. Lous In 1866. and has not seen him since that time until Saturday even* ing when Capt Marsh came down from Washburn in reply to a telephone call to "come and visit with an old friend." When Capt. Atkins told of his capture by guerillas and also of the misfortune that occurred to the second boat which was captured by the guerillas the same day, Capt. Marsh corroborated his story and there was a great ueal of surprise w^hen it developed that he was. mate on the second boat. The guerillas who were in the gang were some of Quan trill's band, the organization to which young Jesse James belonged. In the party vere Mark Belt, Dave Pool, and a man by the name of Martin who had formerly been a clerk in the employ of Gillian and McDaniel, a Kansas City firm who bought negro slaves and shipped them south to New Orleans. 1 Capt. Atkins came to North Dakota in 1884 and settled at Cando where he has continued to make his home. He probably more than any other man can tell of the thrilling encounters the old boatmen used to have with warlike parties of the Sioux. He has a bullet in bis possesion which was fired by a Sioux near the present lo cation of Fort Rice and which struck him in the right side. He will remain in Bismarck for several days and it is Captain Marsh's earnest wish that he will be here long enough to "stand a watch" with him on a trip from Bismarck to Fort Benton so that he may see for himself the vast changes that have taken place in the state since those days of the early sixties.

Court Case Against Messrs Vesper man and Davies Will Come up at Regular May Term of the District Court. Saturday afternoon Assistant Attorn ey General C. L. Young, appearing for the state and Judge Edward Engerud of Fargo, appearing for the county commissioners Vesperman and Davies appeared before Judge Winchester in his rooms at the court house to argue an interesting phase of the case against thse two commissioners. The case arose out of an action which has been brought to oust these two men who have been apppinted to there places on the board from office. The attorneys for the state came before the judge on an order to show cause why Messrs Vesperman and Davies should not be suspeneded from the performance of their official duties' during the pendency of the case against them in the district court However, after they reached the court chambers both Attorney General Mil ler and Assistant Attorneys General Young concluded that In as much as the case was to be brought up in regu lar order at the May term of court that It would perhaps be better.not to have the ruling* on this question of suspension^ during the pendency of the action, but to allow the commis" sioners to continue in the perform ance of their duties until the action was finally decided at the regular term'. In fact. Judge Winchester wa3 ad vised by the attorneys for b6th sides that it would be better not to rule on this question, and consequently no ruling was made and Commissioners Vesperman and Davies will continue in the performance of the duties un til their case is decided in the district court. The reason for this action on the part of the attorneys is that the court would have been obliged to have de cided this interlocutory motion to re move the commissioners from otiice during the pendency of their case in the district court wholly upon the mer" its of the case, and this would have meant that the case would have been practically decided at this time before the regular action had been brought. Neither side was prepared to argue the merits of the case and each, wanted more time before the case would be heard on its merits. So there will be nothing further done until the action to remove them from office comes up before the court in Regular order at the May term. TWO MORE N. DAKOTA OFFICERSJOR TEXAS LETTER RECEIVED MONDAY BY ADJUTANT GENERAL FROM WAR DEPARTMENT. Second Detail from This 8tate to Con* sist of Medical Corps Officer and an Adjutant. The adjutant general's department of the state of North Dakota received a letter Monday morning from the War Department anonuncing that this state was entitled to send two more officers to the mobilization, camp at San Antonio for the purposes of in struction. The letter stated that theae two officers should be one from the medical corps, of a rank below major and the other to be an adjutant. Thus it is seen that the war depa ment desires to Instruct every de partment of the regiment. There are two captains of the state medical corps who should be eligible to go to San Antonio. They 'are .Capt. A. McDonald of Valley City and Capt. Sihler of Devils Lake. Capt. McDonald being the senior officer will probably have the choice of the trip. The order did not state whether the adjutant to be sent should be regi mental or battalion. Capt. R. A. Thompson of Fargo, however is regi mental adjutant and it is very prob able that be will have the choice of the trip for this officer. The detail is to report at San Antonio not later than April 25 to relieve Op first de tail which was sent down! Now's the time to Go See Busch. All about it on Page 4 Tomorrow.

Sunday afternoon Sheriff Frank Barnes, acting under written orders of the state's attorney, so it is said, to prevent the show from running and' arrest the performers, accompanied Barnes and Chief McDonald, and Lieut. Downing, of the police department, who were depu- cowan tria.1 tized by the sheriff to assist him, put on a contiuous performance at the LEFT FOR IOWA. Orand theatre that was not on the program. The Grand was packed for the mat inee performance and the show was just getting under way when the offi cers appeared. They were equipped with a large "Helmar" cigarette sign which they took turn about in holding the magazine with a real of pictures and badly damaged the aim which is valued by the film company at $200. The len3 of the machine is also re ported to have been broken, and the, machine damaged in such a way that only a new one can replace the dam age. When the curtain went up on the first act the officers went down to the stage and Sheriff Barnes leaped into the balcony recently constructed for the'use of the singer of illustrated songs, kicked the door in and leaped on the stage, placing manager Tem ple, stage manager Jenkins, the. piano nlayer and the act which was holding, the boards under arre3t. They were I taken to the court house where they were immediately released and they returned at once to the theatre where the other act was just ready to go on. The officers again went down to the stage and broke through the side entrance on the stage and arrested the other act. Manager Temple, the piano player, and the :stage manager again. They were again taken to the court house and again given their liberty. They returned to the theatre and completed the performance and in the evening put on the two shows as scheduled. The large crowd which was present repent took a great deal of interest in the additional act but.evidently did At noon Monday there had been no complaints sworn to before the state'3 attorney and no arrests have been made. This was the fifth attempt was on the part of the local authorities] ". Each manager .shall have full charge of all passes and prices of ad mission to the games at his home town. The following schedule of games was approved, each team to play nine games away from home and nine- on its own diamond. It is noticeable that neither Bifsmarck nor Mandan will have a game scheduled on the sanxe day, nor will Glen Ulin or New Salem. This will make it possible when there is a game at Mandan for capital city fans to go over and witness it and when there is a game at Bismarck, for Mandanites to come over and see it.. The same rule applies to games at Glen Ullin and New Salem. The schedule: Bismarck at Mandan—May 28, .July 9, August 2. Bismarck at New Salem—May 14, June 2."), August 6.
