One Yictlm Dies. At 12:10 o'clock Wednesday evening occurred the death of John Burke, one of the men injured In the wreck, at the county hospital. Burke has never rallied from the terrible injuries received in the wreck and when pneumonia set in he went very sud denly. He had a terrible cut in the lower part of the body besides bruises and injuries all over his body. He suffered intensively since the wreck. A telegram was sent to the address which he gave in Philadelphia but was returned to the sender, there being no such street or number in the city. He gave his name with great reluctance and it is probable that the name as well as address were fictitious. Woman Saved Horses.

Five of their best horses were in the barn at the time and Mr. Felltson was at Wimbledon working on his new residence, but his good wife was equal to the occasion and went into the burning building, and by the use of a knife cut the tie ropes and drove the hones out. She exper ienced great difficulty in getting out and was completely exhausted from the intense heat and smoke. Few men would have attempted what this woman accomplished.

He says the days of the Isolated rancher with a large herd of cattle and horses, is over as the government and railroad lands are rapidly passing into the hands of settlers who are buy ing the best lands for plowing, and that small bands of stock which will have to be fed In winter from hay cut or feed raised on the ranches, will take the place of the big herds that once tovk care of themselves.

WADSIKV. 20% DISCOUNT 20% On furniture during fair week at Panovitz's Bid Furniture Sale THERE NEVER WAS A IE FAIR President Dinnie of the Fair Association Makes Reply to the Herald. "The management of the Red River Valley Fair association has nothing at all to do with the privileges, having disposed of the' same some time ago to Thos. Hill for $600. So far as the story of the Herald this morning to the effect that there was liquor sold In the buildings of the fair association, is concerned, I say it ia an absolute lie, and do not believe, in fact, that ihere was any liquor whatsoever sold on the grounds. "Furthermore, as to gambling, I do not believe there has been anything worse going on at the fair grounds than in the city of Grand Forks. If County Attorney Wineman would make the rounds of the city, he would find plenty of evidence to sustain my contention. "There has not been a single soli tary complaint made to the officers of the fair association of boot legging, gambling, or of anyone being robbed, or of anyone being held up. Do you think for a minute that a fair of the size of ours can be run without candy games and spindle wheels? Do you think if anyone had been robbed dur ing the past three days they would not have been reported to the fair officials? I think it is a shame that people who have done nothing toward the building up of an association should attempt with groundless, or at least with very slight cause, to tear It down and wreck its standing. R. B. Griffith, a director of the associa tion, made a trip of the grounds with, a view to ascertaining, if possible, if there was or was not any liquor being sold. So far as I can learn, he did not find that there was. "As far as the directors of the fair are concerned, they have done every thing in their power to make this fair a success. They have spent their money and time to thatf end. There are none of the directors who wish to have anything done on the fair grounds that will be a discredit to themselves or to the county, state or city. If there were any complaints of wrong doing, we would have at once taken steps to have the nuisance abated and that without asking the assistance of County Attorney Wineman. There has never been a fair held in this oounty or state, or in any other state, that did not have these candy and spindle wheels. "As to the criticism of Chief Lowe, 1 have never known him not to do his duty, and I believe he has done It this time so far as lay within his power. He has no jurisdiction on the grounds and is simply there at the request of the fair association to pre serve order. The sheriff is the one who has jurisdiction on the fair EvijQ^^JWedJnPbmf^i^ \/OU may not have such another opportunity to buy up-to-date Furniture as the factories are advancing prices.

PANOVITZ FURNITURE AND PIANOS grounds, they being situated outside the city limits." —John Dinnie. Chief Lowe was seen by a represen tative of The Evening Times this morning and the following statement was made by him: "I believe the' criticism of myself by the morning paper was somewhat unjust and I do not believe it would have been made were the true facts known to the writer. In the first place, if ther£ was gambling in pro gress on the grounds, that was a mat ter for the fair association to settle. I was asked by the mayor and by the association to preserve order and pre vent the robbing of people, which I and my force have done to the best of our ability. Anyone who gives the matter a thought can easily appre ciate that I have no authority any how to make arrests on the fair grounds, for the reason that I have no jurisdic tion there. Just as soon as I was noti fied that certain games were not on the square and would have to be stopped, I proceeded to stop them, notwithstanding that it was the duty of the sheriff and not mine."
