LECTURE COURSE.
School Board Secures Five of the Best
Attractions Before the Public.
The school board has completed ar
rangements for one of the best lecture
and entertainment course ever offered
the public in this part of the country.
The course consists of five numbers,
and every one of them is an education
within itself. The board has taken
this step because of the imperative de
niand for work of this kind as supple
j,mental to the school work. The chil
dren learn from books and the con
stant contact with teachers give them
something of. the individuality of the
teacher if that teacher is alive to her
work and qualified to develop the child
nature. But good teachers recognize
P'.the. fact' that children need contact
with the minds of others to prevent
them from becoming narrow and bias
ed. The course includes Ave numbers,

"CERTAINLY I WAS BUSY SATURDAY"
I know what is right in Clothes, and I make it my business to have the
proper thing made up each, season to my own order. Coats just the right
length, cut chesty and shapely at the back, lapels wider and longer—some
with side vents, others with English center vents and my famous price is
$18.00. You save $7.00. How about the "other fellow's" $25.00?

to do would be to buy one of my $18.00 Blue Serge Suits, a $3.00 Roswelle

Garret P. DcMott Met Horrible Death
Under Wheels of Train.
Crookston Journal: Last night one
of the worst accidents which ever oc
curred In this city in respect to shock
ing details, took place on the Great
Northern railroad, when Garret P. De
Mott a well known young man of this
city, was ground to death. Just when
the 'accident occurred or which train
caused the terrible tragedy is a mat
ter of speculation. The body was dis
covered early this morning, part of
the head and trunk were found ground
to bits about one hundred yarcjs north
of the overhead bridge at Eighth
street and the legs were found near
the coal sheds' in South Crookston.'
And it was not for some time after
the remains had been picked up by
Coroner CheBterman that the body
was identified. A memorandum book
and the young man's watch served to
identify him and it was then found
that he had not been seen by any one
who knew him since 9 o'clock last
evening. The last seen of him by his
parents was about 9 or a little after
when they were returning from an
automobile ride which they took last
evening under the Auspices of the
automobile entertainment He was on
his way up town from, the family
residence is South Ash street (former
ly the Riggs residence) when they
were returning from the ride and they,
asked him-to return with them, but
he said he wanted/to go up town for a
short,time and the was.the last seen
of him alive.
He was a model young man, very,
-quiet in all his habits, He was a
little over 21 vears of age and was the
second oldest son. He had been work
ing all spring at carpenter work on
the. new residencei which his parents
are building ongouthAsh.l The De
Mott family it will be rem^mbflred is

Bloomington, 111. They moved to
Crookston last year from Falrview,
111., and purchased the residence on
South Ash formerly owned by Prof.
Riggs. The bereaved parents are pros
trated with grief and fears are enter
tained for his mother who is entirely
overcome by the shock.
One peculiar thing about the acci
dent Is that it is not known whether
was killed at Carman or on the
hill, as it is impossible to tell which
way the body was dragged.
No reason appears why he should
be either at South Crookston or up on
the hill and the whole affair is shroud
ed in mystery. His watch stopped at
10 o'clock. The funeral will be held
Monday afternoon at 2:30.
A Record to Be Proud Of.
When .the books of this city were
audited, the money turned In from the
municipal court was carefully checked,
and while more than $20,000 had been
handled by Judge Sullivan there was
a discrepency of a cent in his ac
counts. This was nothing more than
should have been, but it. is something
to be proud of that after all the years
which have, intervened since he as
sumed the position, he was able to
produce a perfect account of every dol
lar at almost a moment'6 notice. He
did not need an expert to install a
bookkeeping system and teach him
how to conduct it. The efficient clerk
of the court, to whom a share of the
credit of the splendid record is due,
is able to open and keep his own'
books.
Mass Meeting Tomorrow Sight.
The mass meeting called by the
school board at the assembly hall of
the public school building for the pur
pose, of deciding whether or not the
citizens desire to have the books of the
board audited or not, promises to be
largely attended. The request of the
board is that every tax payer in the
city be present and express his senti
ments. The members will not be in
fluenced by the desires of the campers
in the city, but the opinion of the citi
zens will be recognized as the supreme
law qf the land in this particular.

AN OLD TIME
MANAGER
C. E. White of the Crookston Opera
llonse Visits *rand Forks—A Man
Well Informed Upon Theatrical
Matters in the Northwest.
Manager C. E. White of the Crooks
ton opera house, was a guest at the
Hotel Dacotah last evening, enroute
home from a busienss trip to Fargo
and Winnipeg. Mr. White, some year
and a half ago, took the management
of the Crookston opera house and
through his energy and ability has
succeeded in placing theatricals in
that city on a paying basis. He came
to Crookston from Faribault, Minn.,
and 1b one of those old-time theatri
cal managers whom it is'a pleasure
for the press gang to meet and in
terview.
Mr. White has been at Winnipeg as
the guest of Con Walker and has been
arranging for the opening of the
vaudeville season in Crookston.
Crookston last year was one of the
few towns in the circuit in which
vaudeville paid and Mr. White antici
pates another successful season. He
stated to an Evening Times represen
tative last night that the Winnipeg
theatre to be erected by the Walker
Bros, is to be one of the finest in Can
ada. Something of the remarkable
advance in realty holdings in Winni
peg may be judged by the fact that
the. Walkers four years ago secured
options on a site for anew play house
at $40 a front foot. Today the same
site is held at $400 per front foot and
will undoubtedly be sold at not less
than that figure. As soon as the new
theatre is erected. Walker Bros, pro
pose to erect a nine-story hotel and
the entire investment in the opera
house and hotel will be in the neigh
borhood of $500,000. Mr. White's trip
into the Canadian country was one of
interest and enjoyment and a relief
from the everyday duties of an active
career. He discussed theatricals with
local Manager Myers last evening at
the Dacotah and the two well known
promoters are working in harmony in
an eiTort to make vaudeville in this
circuit an unqualified success. Mr.
White took occasion to pay Manager
Meyers the highest compliment for his
conscientious management of the local
theatre and stated that' he feels cer
tain that the Walkers appreciate the
able manner in which the Metropoli
tan has been handled by him. He be
lieves that the future of theatricals
in the "bread basket circuit" is a
bright one and the cities therein will
be given even better productions an
other season than in this past one.
He at one time- owned and managed a
company on the road for himself and
is'full of interesting reminiscences of
early days in the northwest. Mr. White
returned to Crookston this morning.
"Every ship is a romantic object—
except::, that we sail in." The Bmall
merchant "honors with his envy" the
big .oho—but, to' each, the, problem,
of the JKour ls .th* Bame—the one big,
Inescapable, determining problem of
publicity, whloh dwarf8 other "store
worries,"andy when Bolved. makes

ACCIDENT WAS
FATAL
0. Van Tuyle, Son of Mrs. S. Bulger
of This City, Dies us Result of Acci
dent on Great Northern West of
Mlnot.
On Sunday in the city hospital at
Minot occurred the death of Orvilie
Van Tuyle, son of Mrs. S. Bulger of
this city, as a result of an accident
near Ross in which he was run
over by a Great Northern train. The
accident occurred oil Saturday, when
Van Tuyle, a student brakeirmn in the
employ of the railway, in attempting
to board the forward end of a caboose
in a moving train, slipped and fell, the
wheels passing over the right leg and
crushing the bone below the knee.
The injured man, who is about 22
or 23 years of age, was picked up and
later taken on board No. 2 and sent
to the city hospital at Minot, where
the crushed limb was amputated. The
shock and loss of blood, however,
proved more than the victim's vitality
could withstand, and death occurred,
as stated, on Sunday.
The remains were expected to ar
rive here from Minot Sunday even
ing but will, in all probability, come
tonight instead. In that event the
funeral will be held tomorrow.
BAD INDIANS
IN JAIL
U. S. Marshal J.Shea and Deputies
Arrest Three Red Men on Fort
Bertliold Reserve for Assault Upon
an Indian Policeman Last December.
Special to The Evening Time*.
Fargo, N. D., May 14.—United
States Marshal J. J. Shea aud Deputy
Sheriffs Stout and Quist have just re
turned from the Fort Berthold Indian
reservation, where they arrested three
Indians, the leader of whom goes by
the euphonious name of Drags Wolf,
for the part they played in an assault
last December upon a member of the
regular reservation police force. The
accused have been bound over to the
federal grand jury in bonds of $200
each and lodged in the McLean county
jail at Washburn.
It seems that the three Indians in
question, along with others, were hold
ing a disorderly celebration of some
kind on the reservation, when the po
liceman put in an appearance and or
dered the celebration to cease. Trouble
ensued and in the melee that followed
tiie officer shot and wounded one of the
reds. The three Indians now in jail
at Washburn then laid for" the offi
cer and, catching him alone on the
prairie a few days later, beset and bear,
him with a neckvoke, leaving him on
the frozen ground for dead. The vic
tim, however, recovered some twenty
hours later and since then his assault
ers have remained in hiding. Their
arrest was accomplished on Saturday
and all three will be held to answer
for the assault.

BUILDING IS
GROWING
Seventy-Two Residences in Process of
Construction In the City Besides
Those Being Remodeled and Moved
—Many More in Prospect.
The building boom is on in this city
in earnest Last Saturday Conductor
McGraw of the Great Northern road,
spent the afternoon in driving over the
city. He was not on the lookout for
new buildings, but merely counted
those which he saw while driving in
the city. To The Tiroes he stated that
he had counted seventy-two new resi
dences in process of construction.
This does not include the buildings
being remodeled and moved from their
former locations. The latter plan is
now an important item in the city as
nearly all the houses on the property
condemned by the Great Northern rail
road in making the improvements in
its yards, have been sold and are be
ing removed to the residence portion
of the city where they wili be convert
ed into homes. There are many more
residences contemplated, but which
have not as yet been begun, so that the
actual condition of the building in the
city |8 not now visible.
State Examinations.
The state examinations for eighth
grade pupils of this county will be held
May 17 and 18 and Superintendent Mc
Lain has prepared and is now sending
out the questions.

The 1906 season begir.s on Thursdav
with games in four of the eight cities
making up the circuit. Duluth will
play at Pargo, Grand Forks at Winni
peg, Lake Linden at Calumet and
Houghton at Hancock. Everything
seems to be in readiness and all eight
teams will be prepared to jump into
the race for the pennant.
Duiuth has had something of an ad
vantage over other teams, having had
its team together and practicing for a
longer time, but her showing again
Hibbing, with two defeats in thr-e
-lines played, does not furnish her
much in the way of balm.
All of the Copper Country trams are
on hand, and the managers are busy
pruning down the sijuads and in
strengthen^ weak spots Manager
Cassibone of the Houghton team was
not satisfied with the bunch of players
he had on hand and discarded all but
four. The Calumet team looks like the
strongest of the Copper Country teams,
on paper, with Lake Linden a close
second, and both of these clubs should
cut a figure in the pennant race.
The Maroons are practicing In Min
neapolis under the direction of "Spike"
Anderson, and if money will turn the
trick, Winnipeg will have a pennant
winning team in the race this year.
Fargo is also working hard for a
first division team, and Capt Etripp's
bunch looks strong.
On the whole, the prospects are that
the pennant race this year will be a
good one. Duluth, Winnipeg, Fargo.
Calumet, Lake Linden and Grand
Forks all have teams that can be
counted on to put up a fast article of
ball when they get whipped into shape,
and the other two clubs are making
every effort to strengthen their nines
and get into the merry race.
The only danger appears to be that
in thetdesire to get pennant winners,
the managers will exceed the salary
limit ,and repeat the extravagance that
bankrupted the Northern league two
years ago. President Price, hwoever,
declares that after June 1 all of the
clubs will be expected to cut down
ttelr expenses and get within the
limit.

The pronnsu'. !irs been "tipped
off" to local officials of both com
panies, according to the statement of
a well posted railroad man made this
morning. The scheme is that of en
larging and improving the Great
Northern passenger depot in tjiis city
for the use of both railroads and it is
probable that the delay in the arrival
of plans for the addition which the
Great Northern had comtemplated
building anyway, is the result of the
determination to further increase the
capacity in order to meet the demand
that will be made for spacs when the
trains of both Northern Pacific and
Great Northern begin have need of the
same.
Orders were received in this city
not long since for the construction
of a spur to connect the Great North

The Evening Times in a letter received
Sunday. Bushelman, anew man hail
ing from Cedar Rapids in the Three-I
league, pitched and up till the ninth
inning let Claytor's Watertown crowd
down with two lone hits. In the last
chapter the South Dakotans secured
three hits, but did no damage. Mc
Neil says that Bushelman, although a
young fellow, is the ".goods" and a
valuable addition to the team. "We
have another good man," writes the
manager, "in the person of Luderus,
first baseman, who both as a player
and hitter, has Spanton of last year's
team, beaten seven ways. In Satur
day's game he secured three hits, one
of them a home run, while at all times
he fields his position almost perfectly."
Wilson, a fast second baseman, also
from the Three-I league, has arrived
and joined the team. The boys are at
Brookings for a game today and to

If the signs of the times are read
aright, Grand Forks will have, before
the close of the present summer, a
union railway station to be used joint
ly by Great Northern and Northern
trains. The "signs" consist in
the main of various chess board moves
made within the past few days by
both companies. For example—th*»
Northern Pacific has ordered all work
stopped on the new pasenger and

In the event of the construction of the
proposed union depot, Northern Paci
fic trains arriving and departing for 1
the north will make use of the Great
Northern tracks between the local 5
depot and the point on North Third!
street where the two lines of railway!
now cross. It is the intention of the]
Great Northern anyway, to tear out!
the tracks from Schurmeier to the city!
limits, as soon as the "cut off" fromf

'J
is now progressing rapidly, is com

The Northern Pacific would proba

of the greatest being that the expense
of maintaining the present grade be- I
tween the local depot along the east
side of Third street, where there is aJ
heavy "fill" to the site of the old Wal-1
ker saw mill in Riverside Park, would
be done away with. It is estimated by]
railroad men that this quarter mile]
piece of track has cost the Northern!
Pacific in the past fifteen years, in-fl

an engine and fourteen cars of wheatl
went out of sight in fifteen feet ofl

The murder of Mrs. Graves creat-|
ed considerable excitement in Minot I
at the time, and owing to the fact that]
the trial of Graves was held in this]
city local residents became quite con-|
versant with the facts in the case.]
Graves was tried and convicted on a]
charge of manslaughter. According to
the testimony presented by the defen-1
dant at the trial of the case. Graves']
wife became very intimate with a man!
by the name of William Waugh and]
a conspiracy between the two result-!
ed in having Graves committed to an]
insane asylum in Canada. Graves was]
confined in the asylum but a short!
time, when he was released.
The unfortunate husband returned I
to Portal one cold winter's night in]
January, 1904, and going to his home!
discovered Waugh with his wife in al
compromising position. Waugh fled I
immediately from the house and|
Graves, pulling a revolver from hisl
pocket, shot his wife dead. His trial I
was held before Judge Palda. Attor-I
ney James John was state's attorney!
at the time, and the defendant was!
ably defended by Attorney W. N.l
Crane, who saved Graves from receiv-f
ing the death penalty.
