(Suicide) DROWNED MAY 12 1881
The stick was found by Mr. Weaver
sticking in 4.hc mud by the river bank,
and was so arranged as to attract atten­
tion. Mr. Weaver states that a few days
since he saw a person sitting in the vicin
itv of the landing of the Eclipse, near the
place where the stick was found, »nd the
person acted and looked so despondent
that he attracted attention. Thus tar no
one has been found that is able to asso­
ciate the name with any known person in
Bismarck or vicinity and as the waters of
the Missouri never give up their dead the
matter is destined for the time being, at
least to prove a mystery.
Monday's Election.
The election Monday passed off very
quietly, but few people seeming to take
any interest in it. As nearly as can be
ascertained but few lfany votes were cast
at the Painted Woods and Seventeenth
Siding precincts- In the Bismarck pre
cinct but 123 votes were cast upon the
bond question, and 120 for Justice of the
Peace. A majority of the few people who
did vote were carried to the polls in car­
riages. The result of the election on the
bond question is in favor of funding the
outstanding indebtedness of Burleigh
county which shall exist on the first day
of July, 1881, by issuing therefor bonds of
the county running ten years at eight per
cent interest.
The only candidates for Justice of the
were Hugh McDonald and Michael
T. O'Connor. The result in the Bismarck
precinct is ifepdrted by the judges as fol­
For funding the county debt, "yes" 128
"no" 41 Hugh McDonald* republican,
for Justice of the Peace, had 118 votes,
and Michael T. O'Connor, democrat, 8.
The vote was very light but, as will be
seen, pretty nearly unanimous. The re­
publicans, of course, gained an immense
victory, but the compliment to Hugh Mc­
Donald's square-toed integrity was the
most striking feature of the day.
The Bridge.
Few can gain an idea of the immensity
ofthe high bridge now being built at Bis­
marck over the Missouri river. Gaze at
the -height of the smoke stacks of the Da
kotah,imagine abridge twenty feet above
ihe top of them and 1,200 feet long, to­
gether with trestle work nearly a mile in
length,and some idea of the bridge sturuc
ture can be obtained. Over sixty cars of
stone have been crossed on the transfer
boat during the past two weeks for rip
rappng on the east shore, and on the dike
hundreds of sand bags are being piled lo
complete the dam for «he June rise.
When this work shall have been com­
pleted the dike will be about five feet
higher than at present, which will raise
the sandbar both above and below to an
equal extent. All is life and bustle at the
lauding, and in a few days over 500 men
will be at wont on this, one ot the great­
est structures in the country.
Contract Awarded.
Before the departure of General Mana­
ger Haupt from Bismarck, the bids for
grading the approach to the biidge were
opened and the contract was awarded to
Messrs. Bellows and Fogarty, well known
and chief contractors of the Missouri Di­
vision. This award assures the early com­
pletion of the work as the gentlemen re­
ferred to have ample facilities and every
means for success. The work will neces
sitate the removal of fully 150,000 yards of
earth, and just as large a force will be em
ployecl as can conveniently be worked
The approach to the bridge will be
through a cut from seventy-five to 100 feet
deep, the material to be removed being
sand, clay and boulders. Messrs. Bellows
& Fogarty have already made arrange­
ments for commencing work at once and
desire to employ a large number of men
and teams. They piopose to pay $1.75 a
day lor shovelers, and $4 a day tor a man
a team. These prices they consider more
advantageous to the workmen than those
paid at the end of the track where oats
cost $1.50 per bushel and everything else
is proportionately high.
In the Whole Hlstoru of Medicine
No preparation has ever performed snch marvcl
oijs cures, or maintained so wide a reputation,
as AYEH'S CHEERY PECTOHAL. which is recog­
nized as the world's remedy for all diseases of
the throat and lungs. Its long continued series
of wonderful cures in all climates has made it
universally known as a safo and reliable agent
to employ. Against ordinary colds, which arc
the forerunners of more serious disorders, it
acts speedily and surely, always relieving suffer­
ing. and often saving life. The protection it af­
by its timely use in the throat and lung
disorders of children, makes it an invaluable
remedy to be kept always on hand in every
home. No person can afford to be without it.
and those who have once need it never will.
From their knowledge of its composition and ef­
fects, Physicians use the CIIBBRT PBCTOBAL ex­
tensively in their practice, and clergymen rec­
ommend it. It is absolutely certain in its rem­
edial effects, and will always cure where cures
are possible. For sale br all dealers.
lie8Cued From Death.
The following statement of William 1. Cough
lm,of Somerville, Mass., is so remarkable that
we beg to ask for it the attention of our readers.
He says: "In the fall of1876 I was taken with a
violent bleeding of the lungs followed by a se­
vere cough. I soon began to lose my nppetite
and flesh. 1 was so weak at one time that I could
not leave my bed. In the summer ol'1877 I was
admitted to the city hospital. While there the
doctors said I had a hole in my left luns as bm
as a half dollar. I expended over a hundred dol­
lars iu doctors and medicines. I was so far Rone
at one time a port went around that I« dead
I gave up hope, but a friend told me of DU. WM
at my friends, thinking that my case was incura
ble, but I got a bottle to satisfy them, when to
my surprise and gratification I commenced to
feel better. Mvhope, otice dead, began to revive,
and to-day I feel in better spirits than I have, tlie
past three years. I write this hoping you will
publish it. so that every one afflicted with ens
cased luntrs will be indncud to tukd Dr»
