It has been in session several times and the members have given the matter siderable consideration, but it Icon a rather difficult proposition to deter mine, and as the action of the com mittee, if accepted by the council, will be binding for a term of years, every detail is being considered.

Strickland, a distant relative of Mrs. Elton, was one of the nine victims of the Camden, Wash* Great Northern wreck of Tues day afternoon. The Stricklands at one time lived in this vicinity, R. G.

Oustutchu, a Jewish young man of about 24 years of age. was taken with an attack of epilepsy at 11 o'clock today .while watching a ball game being played by some boys on a corner lot near Second avenue and for a time suffered the agonies incident to the disease which he is a victim of.

Here lies the bones of our ball team, Some were fat and others lean Interred. was obdurate, saying that every day was $50 or $60 out of his pocket, that this program had been in progress now for several days too long, and that the end was—yet. It will be known definitely this evening whether the team will be transferred to Ashland, Wis., or not. Most of the players are willing to re main together, but two or three will take the early trains for their re spective homes. The record of the season shows the aggregation won the grand total of thirteen in forty-nine games played, which explains very easily the failing attendance and support of the home fans. Many of the games were lost by close scores and through tough luck, undoubtedly, but it is results the supporters of a ball team want, not excuses. The Evening Times joins in wishing the boys good luck where soever they may go and hopes for them a peaceful haven in the land of horse shoes and rabbit-feet "There's a lady in Kalamazoo Who bites all her oysters in two For she feels a misgiving.

D., July 25 (3:30 p. m.).— In a statement made public this after noon, President Price of the Northern Copper Country league said, with reference to the report that the Grand Forks team may be dropped, that the league had been running the team since July 11, and that the report that Wednesday's game would be the last at Grand Forks was false. "Regard less of what action M. Stanchfleld may take," said he, "the team will remain in Grand Forks for the Houghton series and perhaps until the end of July, when a transfer to Ashland may be arranged." President Price also stated that the batting and fielding averages recently sent out by Secretary Percy Glass were absolutely incorrect and that the incompetency of the secretary was so manifest that he had decided to take the position away from him and had already ordered his salary stopped. HOTEL DACOTAH. In the prolific use of printers' ink that is incident to the present age and generation, it is very often the case that exaggeration of more or less ex tended character is, at times, resorted to by writers, when if they would only stop to reason, they would at once see that facts would answer their purpose far better. Using this logic as our standard we may say that facts alone are needed when writing of the hotel whose name heads this article. The Hotel Dacotah has been known to the traveling public for a number of years as a place where the stranger and traveler could at all times re ceive the very best of treatment and accommodations. The patronage of the Dacotah has grown so rapidly that two years ago it became necessary to add another story containing fifty guest rooms. The building is now four stories high, fire proof throughout and fitted with every modern convenience. The dining room is large, well light ed and handsomely appointed and the cuisine is positively unexcelled for quality and variety. Messrs. Bacon & Wood, the pro prietors, have spared neither pains nor money in bringing the Dacotah to a high state of perfection. The famous Lilac Hedge Dairy farm has been specially fitted up to furnish the Da cotah's tables with the purest food possible. The hotel is under the very able management of the genial Jim Bell, who is known not only to all the busi ness men, but to the traveling frater nity as a man thoroughly familiar -with all the details of successful hotel management.

D. EXCURSION Til NELL LOADED Between 400 and 500 Grand Forks People Go to Fargo to Attend Fair. Between four and five1 hundred Grand Forks people are absent from their accustomed haunts fn this city today, having joined the excursion party which went to Fargo this morn ing. The Great Northern rumished a special train, consisting of an en gine and seven coaches. These were all well filled when the train pulled out of the station at 8 o'clock. It was a big, happy, rollicking crowd that took Fargo by storm when the special pulled into the G. N. depot in that city. The excursionists nearly all wore badges to show they came from this city. Originally it was intended to have the Grand Forks City band accompany for the purpose of enlivening things, but at the last moment it was found Impossible to carry the idea Into exe cution. The members of the band for the most part are employed at trades in the city, and it not having been decided until only last evening to en gage the band, it was out of the ques tion for enough of the members to get off to make the proper showing. The idea was therefore abandoned. How ever, as one hundred Grand Forks people are equivalent to three hun dred of any other city, the crowd that went along will make itself felt and heard without any doubt. The day's program will be as follows: Wedaeaday, July 25—Grand Pork* Day. 8:00—Gates of the fair open. 9:00—Arrival of Grand Forks citi zens. Judging Galloways, class 15 Clydesdales, class 6.

IN SYMPATHY Saint Thomas People Mourn Over Death of Mrs. Daniel O'Connor—Other Items. Special to The Bvcalag Tinea. Saint Thomas, N. D., July 25.—The community is deeply grieved by the death of Mrs. Daniel O'Connor, which occurred at Pasadena, Cal., on July 20th. Mrs. O'Connor had been in Cal ifornia for her health since last Octo ber, but regardless of climate she gradually failed until too weak to re turn home, she was compelled to re main there. The body accompanied by Mr. O'Connor is expected to arrive on Thursday and interment will take place in St. Thomas Catholic ceme tery. Mrs. O'Connor is a sister of Mayor Dunn of Grafton. Miss Nellie Garnett and Mrs. P. M. Walker are visiting with Mrs. Rey nolds of Bathgate. Since the republican state conven tion local politics is at rest, preparing for the fall campaign. The republi cans here admit, that the state ticket is exceptionally strong, and the con vention a grand success. Governor Saries has a large following and is very popular on account of his busi ness like administration. He will roll up a sweeping majority in No vember, and the republican organiza tion will feel proud of Pembina coun ty with Hon. Jud. LaMoure at the helm. Crop conditions are good and the weather is exceptionally favorable. Some red rust is reported but not con sidered especially dangerous to the crop, and an average yield is assured. A. M. O'Connor is attending the session of federal court at Fargo as a juror. A POST GRADUATE COURSE. Theodore Elton Will Return to Wash. Ington to Complete His Studies. Contrary to the report that he would engage in the practice of law in this section of the state, Theodore Elton states to The livening Times that he expects to return to Washington at the next session of congress where he will continue his work as secretary to Senator Hansbrough and will take up a postgraduate course in law. Mr. Elton completed his course this year but is desirous of taking up ad vanced work. The opportunities in Washington are superior to those in any other city for the study of law on account of the splendid libraries and the opportunity to study parliamentary proceedings and supreme court rulings from the fountain head of the government. Fred Dennis of Crookston. Minn., secretary to Congressman Steenerson of Minnesota, completed a course in law at Washington this year and will eventually hunt out his shingle. Mr. Dennis was in the same class as Mr. Elton. Music Lessons. Miss Jane M.

One of the boldest insurance swind les ever worked in the state was per petrated in Bemidji recently, when a woman going by the name of Mrs Jen nie Anderson, by passing herself off as Mrs. Jennie Anderson, wife of Andrew E. Anderson, deceased gained possession of $2,000 insurance money due the widow from the Ancient Or der of United Workman. Through the merest chance, a fortu nate mistake that will happen once in many years a part of this sum, a draft for $1,400 has been recovered, but the woman and $600 in cash is still in parts unknown. A warrant for her ar rest, charging grand larceny has been issued by County Attorney McDonald and the sheriff, is now hot on her trail. W. B. Anderson, of Minneapolis, at torney for the order, has been in Be midji for two days searching out evi dence, and he declares himself deeply impressed with the remarkable fea tures of the case. In the twenty eight years that the A. O. U. W. has been doing business in 'Minnesota, says Mr. Anderson, this is the first case on record where a fraud of this character has been successfully "car ried through. Mr. Anderson left Be midji fully convinced that he could protect the order against loss, although he expected a law suit with the bank cashing the draft. Andrew E. Anderson of Bemidji was a member of Little Falls lodge No. 104 and was insured for $2,000. He died at Bemidji May 2. Proofs of death were executed and filed May 10, and June 12 a warrant for the full amount of the insurance was sent to L. W. Vasaly, recorded of the Little Falls lodge. Had Mr. Vasaly sent the warrant to the recorder of the Bemidji lodge for delivery to the widow, as is customary all the trouble would have been avert ed. But he preferred to deal directly with the beneficiary himself. May 28, Mrs. Anderson, the rightful widow wrote Mr. Vasaly, saying that she was in impoverished circum stances and urging that he hurry the money if.' possible, and the recorder answered that she could have the war rants when she produced the certifi cate which had been issued to her husband when he took out the insur ance. It was this letter that was delivered to the wrong Mrs. Jennie Anderson presumably seeing a chance to make an easy $2,000 she took the letter to an attorney, C. W. Scrutchin of that city, and told him that she had the money, but she had lost her certificate, having no reason to doubt the wo man's honesty, Mr. Scrutchin consent ed to act as her attorney, and wrote a letter for her to the Little Falls re corder, explaining that she had lost her certificate. The answer came back that the wo man must make an affidavit to that ef fect, and Mr. Scrutchin, as a notary public took her acknowledgment. The affidavit did not satisfy the head offi cers of the order and a printed affidav it was sent to be filled in and sworn to. Mr. Scrutchin acted as notary public in making out this second paper also, and mailed it as requested. In a short time the draft was sent to Mr. Scrut chin as Mrs. Anderson's attorney. The draft was made payable at the First National bank of Bemidji and the attorney and the fraudulent Mrs. Anderson went to the institution to get the draft exchanged for money. Mrs. Anderson signed the draft with her mark and C. W. Scrutchin and R. H. Schumaker, cashier of the bank, signed as witnesses to the mark. The bank then paid over $600 in cash and the balance, $1,400 in the shape of a draft. Mrs. Anderson im mediately left town and no more was heard of her until she presented the draft to a bank at Escanaba, Michigan for payment. Then it was discovered that in writing the draft the numerals had been made to read $1,400 and the written figures fourteen dollars. As the written figures always govern on a check or draft, the Escanaba bank sent the paper to the First National of that city for ratification. This draft for $1,400 was received yesterday and the bank is holding on to it. There is a lively dispute as to which shall stand the $600 loss, the bank or the order. The order claims that the bank did not exercise due diligence identifying Mrs. Anderson as the rightful beneficiary. Mr. Anderson while there yesterday said his order was willing to stand the expense of a suit to find just how law on such cases would be interpreted by the courts. N. P. GROSSING Put in on North Fourth Street —Great Accommodation to the Farmers. The N. P. road has put in a street crossing at the foot of North Fourth street and hereafter farmers coming to the city from the north will not be obliged to go around by the but will have a shorter and more direct road into town. This is a much de sired improvement and was put in by the railroad company at the request of Street Commissioner Durick who superintended the job. The crossing is put in at the railroad company's expense. Commissioner Durick is busy re pairing the paving on Chestnut and Belmont streets, the worn out blocks being replaced by new ones. Consid erable grading is going on, particu larly upon Oak, Cherry and Eshel man streets. While Third street is admittedly in bad shape, other streets of the city are in excellent condition, the repairs being constantly kept up and the commissioner and men are active in the discharge of their duties.

M6 SENSATION 111 THE MPEG Horse Friendless Alleged to Have Been Stolen Will be Seized at Exhibition. Winnipeg July 25.—"Friendless," a running horse, entered for several events in the racing programme at the exhibition, was stolen from a Louisiana track, and Judge Cumber land, at Brandon yesterday, decided that Mr. Parley who brought it to Brandon, must hand it over to Sheriff Cyrier. The horse was entered at the Bran don race meet on May 24 and at the close of the races Sheriff Henderson, of Brandon, seized the runner for -Sheriff Cyrier, of Louisiana, who claimed the horse was stolen. Farley, who brought the horse to Canada, then issued a writ of replevin and upon giving a bond, was allowed to reclaim possession. He claimed the horse was his, and that he had bought him from the owner. The case was tried before Judge Cumberland on July 13, judg ment being reserved. According to a despatch to the Free Press last night the judgment given yesterday morning is against Farley, who must give up the horse and pay all costs. Sheriff Henderson left Brandon last evening to seize the horse at the Win nipeg track but as the advice from Brandon was received in the city late he could not be located nor could the report be confirmed that actual seizure had been made. According to the official list of en tries the horse "Friendless" is entered in six events by Burst Kenaston of Winnipeg and as Sheriff Henderson has papers authorizing him to seize the horse for Sheriff Cyrier, on the Winnipeg track, it is-not likely that it will run today.
