A Bad Man.
The Jamestown authorities have in
vestigated the history of Alexander
Anderson, the man who shot and killed
Thos. Crune, a Moorhead bartender,
because the latter refused him a free
drink, and have found his reputation
to bave been an unsavory one. He
pulled a revolver on a co-laborer on
the Cooper farm near Jamestown and
was arrested later in that village for
disorderly conduct Altogether there
seems np doubt of his past record be
ing tainted criminally. Moorhead peo
ple have subscribed $200 for the im
mediate needs of the family of Crune,
the murdered man.

Boss of the Seventh District
Fears Prosecution for Al
leged Sale of Vote.
According to the report in yesterday
morning's issue of the Herald regard
ing Sorley's meeting at Mekinock,
which report was made by Sorley him
self, they undertake to show that S.
G. Skulason had no sympathy from the
people present. The truth of the mat
ter, according to the report of one who
heard It all, is that after Sorley had
finished speaking someone in the
audience requested S. G. Skulason to
tell why he was not an insurgent.
During Skulason's remarks an in
surgent made a motion for Skulason
to sit down, whereupon Skulason ask
ed If there was a second to the motion,
stating that if the majority of the
meeting desired him to sit down he
would be glad to do so, but as there
was not even a second to the motion
he continued. During his remarks
he asked Sorley if he did not take
money for voting for Roach, to which
question Sorley responded in the nega
tive. Skulason then asked him if he
would be willing to sign an affidavit to
that effect and stated that he was a
notary public and could take such
acknowledgement Sorley refused to
give it.
The Evening Times now desires to
ask Mr. Sorley why he is unwilling to
give such an affidavit if there Is no
truth in the rumor.
Sorley claimed in this public meet
ing that it kept him most of his time
denying such falsehoods, and it ap
pears to the Evening Times that he
must be afraid of further legal pro
ceedings when he refuses to give
such an affidavit Sorley also said he
was running for a pesky little office
in the 7th district. Evidently he don't
appreciate the honor, does he simple
want it to help out another democrat?
On Saturday night, according to re-
ports, Skulason demonstrated that he
was able to hold his own and take care
of himself even under the fire of an ex
perienced attorney like Sorley, and
when the votes in Mekinock village
and townships, are counted it will ab
solutely vindicate him, and Sorley will
be shown that the people have ho con
fidence in him in that community.

The city aldermanlc board, with
Mayor Duis presiding, held another
quite lengthy vigil last evening when
it met in adjourned session to take up
and discuss among other matters of
importance the Great Northern ordi
nance, as it is called.
The session was called promptly at
Water Coma Hlih.
City Auditor O'Connor read a com
munication from Supt Macy Nichol
son of the Great Northern asking a
reduction on the present water rates
charged the company by the city. The
present rate is 8 cents per 1,000 gals.,
and the consumption about 3,000,000
gals, per month. The sender of the
communication Intimated that unless,
a reduction was made the company
would in all probability erect and
equip a pumping station of its own.
Mr. Nicholson thought six cents would
be about right. The communication
was, on motion of Aid. Collins, re
ferred to the water works committee.

Great Northern Orliuiet.
The next matter taken up was the
proposed Great Northern ordinance for
the vacation of streets. This is the
ordinance which gives the company
right-of-way over certain thorough
fares—streets, avenues and alleys—
and provides for the extension of In
ternational avenue to a point several
blocks wesf, of its present terminuB.
The matter of the vacations goes into
committee for resolution.
The matter of granting right-of-way,
the establishment of crossings, etc., is
cared for in the ordinance which was
last evening placed upon its second
reading and passed, after having been
before the aldermanic board on sev
eral previous occasions for discus
sion. The company will be compelled
to maintain crossings over the Ninth
street tracks at the intersections of
International, University, Cheyenne,
