Supreme Court Decision Seats
MnJarvis as Councilman^
of This City.
Sensations come thick and fast, in
this city these days. The last is .the
reversal of the case of Bell vs. Jatvis
by the supreme court, the opinion, in
which was handed down this morning.
Those who had even an elementary
knowledge of law ^nd were conversant
with the facts, knew the decision
would be just what it is. The disap
pointed ones are those who have ac
cepted the wild and rediculous state
ments in the west side morning sheet,
as even approximately true. Prom
the day the district court sat "to hear
the case in Bast Grand Forks the
matter was settled.
The effects of the decision are that
Borcliers, the alderman who was seat
ed under the'order of the distrfct
court, will be required to /vacate the
office so soon as the opinion Of the
supreme court is filed, and Alderman
Jarvis will be restored to the rights
of the office, and will be entitled to the
salary of the same since he was de
posed under the order of the lower
court Borchers will be
retunfthe salary which he has re
ceived. The costA of the case will be
recovered by Jarvis.
The case in its details is familiar
to the public,'but it is well to repeat

That's the way I want you to meet me tomorrow. It's certainly time to
give your faithful but tried Winter Suit a rest and turn your attention to a
Fresh Spring One. One of the nicest thing about my $18.00 Suits is that you
don't see the same suit all up and down the street. Every pattern used in my
new suits is confined exclusively to me. So your chances of ever running
across your double is all off. Another thing I want to tell you is that you
canhot buy clothes cut and made as I have them exclusive styles for
me to my own order. Did you ever notice the difference between my
clothes and the Dry Goods and Bargain Store kind?'
Those new arrivals of Spring Underwear are going fast. Those new im
ported BalbriggaxLS at 50c, 75c and $1 seem to be in the lead.
The Roswelle Hats are always the very latest and I have them shipped to
me every week $3.00 buys them on the corner.
Tomorrow I will be busy, but not too busy to wait on you. Come in.

Thursday's Fire Destroyed
Property Valued at $18,000
or $19,000.
The hottest fire which Grand Forks
has experienced since the burning of
the linseed oil mill several years ago—
though not the most costly—was that
which destroyed the Great Northern
coal sheds on Thursday afternoon and
completely gutted Bailes & Perkins'
wood working factory. When the fire
was at its height it was almost impos
sible to stand nearer than a block dis
tant and cars and buildings and piles
of lumber three hundred feet away
were several times in flames.
A spark from a passing engine was
probably responsible for the fire.
Smoke was first discovered issuing out
of the east end of the upper part of
the sheds at a few minutes past 4
o'clock. There were several men at
work in the coal shutes at the time and
five empty cars also stood in the up
per part of the structure. Railway
employes on a yard engine seem to
have been the first to note the fire and
engine^ which were standing nearby
immediately started their whistles go
ing. It (was several minutes before
the fire department was notified, how
ever, and in the meantime, though
some effort was made to reach the dan
ger, point with buckets of water, the
blaze gained great headway and in five
minutes practically the entire struc
ture was enveloped and burning fierce
ly. VThe coal therein and dry lumber
created a fierce heat and in a few
brief minutes communicated to the
section house standing to the south
and to the Bailes & Perkins factory.
The members of the fire department,
seeing the liselessness of attempting to
do salvage work on the coal sheds,
turned their attention to saving the
woodwork factory and other property
adjoining and in the path of the fire.
The flames ..were driven northeasterly
by a strong southwest find and for a
time it looked as though the factory of
the Ooldton Grain Biscuit company
would be damaged. Employes of the
company, however, kept the window
sills and other wood work well wetted
with small emergency hose.
The flames were not controlled un
til after 5 o'clock, when the coal sheds
collapsed, though there was at that
time no likelihood of further loss on
the Bailes & Perkins factory. This
structure, however, was almost com
pletely gutted and all the stock of hard
and soft woods, glass, etc., was de
stroyed or, badly damaged. Most of
the machinery is also ruined, though
apart of it withstood the heat and. can
be used again. The greater loss will
be on stock and building.
The Great Northern's loss li^ludes.
beside the- coal sheds, one of its own
cars and four'belonging to foreign
companies, about two hundred tons of
soft coal, a section house, and dam
aged trackage and a small amount of
9 'umber piled nearby burned.
The freight cars destroyed have an
average value of $900 apiece. Con
trary to report that they were loaded,
•none of them contained anything. The
section house destroyed would cost
about *1,000 possibly, while the coal
shute, according to one of the com
pany officials, could scarce Iv be re
placed for,less than $3,000, if'for that
amount. The coal burned might be
worth $1,200, and the damage to track
age. lumber and ties would add $2,000,
bringing the total estimated loss up
nearly $12,000. The
Great Northern has an insurance de
partment of its own which handles fire
risks and fire losses
iTBte !oss sustained by Bailes & Per
kins, including damage to factory
building, machinery, stock of woods
glass, cement, paints, oils, hardware,
etc., will run close to the $6,000 mark,
perhaps more and possibly a little less!

To High Schools of State—
Conditions Excellent, Inter
est is Enthusiastic.
President Merrifield of the univer
sity returned home today from the
southern portion of the state. The
president has been engaged for sev
eral weeks in the tafek of inspecting
the hundred or more high schools in
all parts of North Dakota. The annual
Inspection is a laborious job but by
the end of the month it is expected
that nearly all the schools will have
been visited. The last week the presi
dent has spent along the main line of
the Northern Pacific and on the Soo
towns near by. Lisbon, Lidgerwood.
Oakes, Wahpeton, Ellendale and
Moore were removed from this year's
visiting list and all were found in a
flourishing condition In all the
schools visited the boards were mak
ing plans for new equipment, newer
methods and a larger staff of teachers
for the coming year and within a very
few years North Dakota will be able
to stand in the limelight of publicity
with any state in the country and point
with pride to her public school svs
The state high school examinations,
sent out annually by the state univer
sity, were returned from the printers
today and the work of fulfilling the
applications for the same is being en
tered into with vigor. The applications
received for examination papers in
some subjects are almost triple the
number in any preceding year. For
example last year about 600 question
papers were mailed for English I ex
aminations. This year applications for
1,600 have been received at the univer
sity. Next in importance to English
I come the mathematical subjects.
Elementary algebra leads in this
branch with 1,400 applications.
As entrance to the University of
North Dakota can be secured by a cer
tificate of graduation from any first
class high school in the state, these
state examinations are in no ^ay com
pulsory. However, they can be substi
tuted for the regular local examina
tions and at the same time the student
is given a certificate of passing and
credit for the subject is registered, so
consequently they are becoming more
popular every day. This year the total
number sent out will reach close up
to the 30,000 mark while last year but
16,000 were sent out all together.
Famous Civil War Chaplain Assigned
to. the North Dakota Methodist Epis
copal Conference Which Meets at
Valley City on October 11.
Telegraphic dispatches just received

famous during the civil war as a chap
lain, has been assigned to take charge
of the northwestern conferences of the
Methodist church this year, and will
preside over the North Dakota Metho
dist Episcopal conference to be held
at Valley City, Oct. 11.
The conference of bishops recently
closed at Evanston, 111., the seat of the
leading Methodist university in this
country. Assignments were made at
that time.
The bishops also determined to ask
the M. E.. churches of the United
States to assist in raising a fund of
$500,000 to be used in the reconstrue
tiorf of church buildings destroyed in
the recent San Francisco disaster.
The sum of $250,000 Is also asked for
the purpose of furthering the advance
ment of the church in India.

The records of the roads that have
been laid out over west were burned
some time ago and the people are at
a loss to know exactly where they are

at the present time other than this is
the question, it being maintained that
the road was washed into the river.
The matter will be a rather hard one

Deepens and Story of Sister
Fails to Shed Light on::y/:
Special to The Bvealac TUaeo.
Bemidji, May 11.—The mystery aur-l
rounding the death of the Chippew&i
squaw just off the Red Lake reserva-i
tion last Sunday is deepened by the''
story of the wife of Crazy Dog, the afr
cused man, and Bister to the dead:
She told it for. the first time yester-,
day under oath to County Attorney '3-t
E. McDonald through an interpreter,
and the tale, punctuated with tears*
and sobs, had every evidence ot betes
the truth.
According to her version she had nok
trouble with her sister on the f&tal_
night. She denies this charge of the
other Chippewas with much vehe-:
mence. Her story reduced to a
straight narrative in English would
read much as follows
"I went to sleep early in the after
noon Sunday at a little distance from
the campflre and know nothing of what
occurred until about 4 o'clock in the
morning when someone came and
woke me up.
'Your sister is burned.' he told me
and I jumped up and ran over to where
she lay. The clothing was all burned
away except where she was lying on it
and the flesh was burned, but she wa»
still alive.
'Get me a drink of water,' my sis
ter moaned. Iran and got her a drink
and helped her all I could. She disd
aboii daybreak."
According to the squaw's testimony,
when she was awakened her husband
and Martin had left the camp.
County Attorney McDonald was up
in the Indian country on other county
business when he heard of the fc«Hne
