Inside Facts of Romantic Ven ture of Marquis De Mores AUTHOR WELL VERSED IN EARLY HISTORY State Again To Embark in Pack ing Industry After Long Years (Editor's Note.—This is the first of a series of articles by J. W. Foley of Medora on North Da kota's first packing plant venture. Mr. Foley for years was confiden tial agent for Marquis De Mores and for the first time has consent ed to tell the story of that inter esting venture. He has access to all papers and other data. These articles will appear exclusively in The Tribune.) BY J. W. FOLEY. Medora, Oct. 4.—Thirty-three years have gone by since the first abattoir in which beef was slaughtered for the retail trade was opened in what is now the State of North Dakota. Had this business been started by an Amer ican, little notice would have been taken by the people at large. Its success or failure might have caused a "nine day wonder" and then have been forgotten. But fortunately for the Ten Cent Magazine wiiters it was started by a French R'.nrquis and this fact gave these waters the chance of their lives. 'Perennial Sensation. When sensations were lacking there was always De Mores and his packing plant to fall bask upon. There were as many roths written about the oil pick'n» pisipt as there vort about H«ltm of T~c Dido and Carthage or •th« founds'*' U' of Home. -The thiuf lasted until "Teddy," secured the stage as a 'Pr.'j?b Rride," and he has held It *ver stii'f and po De Mora* ullowcul to rest1 in hi* grave peacc.

Now that thir ty years have passed since the plant was closed for the last time we feel that its history may be written. We are perhaps the only one now living who can write its true history, hav ing been with the business from al most its start and having had ac cess to all the records, accounts and correspondence. It's true, persons who never had the inside information claim to know more of the business than we do, and have told us so. To such we can only Bay in all kindness, "It's possible you may have been mis informed." The First Abattoir. We will here say that the articles are written as a little history of the past that dear old past which is gone never to return, and with it many of the dear old pioneers. The articles are not inspired by the news that other abattoirs are to be erected in our state or to encourage or dis courage their erection. Medora had the first abattoir. This is sufficient honor. Times then and now are vast ly different. North Dakota had then Scarcely 150,000 Inhabitants. What has it today? There was one trans continental railroad. Today there are four. There was one bank in all the west Missouri country. How many today? There were two markets in which fresh meat was sold. How many today? Now for a little personal history: We went into the service of De Mores in St. Paul in 1884, and in New York fn 1886. All the business was placed in our hands in November 18S6, when if was in operation from Helena to New York. When we reported for duty at St. Paul, the news that we had been in the army had reached there, and it was fully understood that we knew nothing of business nor of anything else. We were told so, and to this day we are not fully satisfied, but the ones who had formed the Continued on Page Three) Negro Woman Is Lynched Says Report Albany, Ga.,Oct. 4—A negro woman, named Connelly, whose son is charged with killing a white farmer after a quarrel, in which she took part, was taken from the jail at Leary, Ga., some time Monday night and lynched, according to reports reaching here to day.
