Old Engine Doing Dray Work for Mayor Duis Tips Over, Boiler Breaking and Throw ing Scalding Steam Upon Engineer Hallock, 0. Olson, F. Stiger and J. Newark. Ma MU SHI TO mkbjiie Three of the Victims Taken to the Deaconess Hospital for Their Injuries. The breaking of an axle on a trac tion engine being used by Mayor Duls in removing threshing engines from the present quarters to the new loca tion at Walnut and Third streets, was responsible for the ruining of the boiler and the serious scalding of Clarence Hallock, the engineer, and the burning of the bystanders. The engine which caused the trouble was an old one, but was not thought to be unsafe. It seems that it had been stopped at the Great Northern tracks to wait for a freight to pass, and when the power was applied to start It again, the axle snapped and allowed the engine to drop to the ground. This broke the fire sheet Inside the fire box and the steam and hot water pour ed through the fire box, blowing opeu the door and enveloping Hallock, who was standing on the foot board, and scalding him from the neck down. The other two men were bystanders and when the steam poured out of the boiler they became enveloped and at once started to get out of the way. They ran into the train, which had just passed, and came nearly being killed by that. One of these, Olaf Olson, lives at Fisher, Minn., and had come to the city today to pay Mr. Duls a bill which he owed. His left leg was scalded from the knee down and the right one from the hip down. Two other men, John Newark and Fred Stiger, were also scalded. Olson was taken to Dr. Engstad's office, where his burns were cared for, and the others were removed to the Deaconess hospital. Clarence Hallock has been employed by Mr. Duls for six years, his parents being residents of Brenna township. Wilbur McCauley, who was guiding the rear engine -which was being hauled out of the building, escaped practically unhurt An inspection of the axle shows that it had been broken more than half off for some time, as the fracture was badly corroded. It was impossible, however, to have detected the same and of course no blame can attach to anyone.

Martin Doyle, who was placed on trial in Morden, Man., on Wednesday afternoon for the niurder of Vincent Weiler, showed but little the effects of his long confinement according to dispatches from that place. He dis played a slight nervousness when he took bis seat but this nervousnes. wore off as the trial progressed. After the trial was well under way Geo. A. Stewart Potts, crown prosecutor ad dressed the jury, outlining at some length the case against the prisoner and the evidence that would be ad duced at his trial by ihe crown. He referred to Doyle ancP Weiler having crossed the boundary line to Mow bray on Nov. 18, where Weiler signed a deed making over his farm to Mar tin Doyle, Jr. Two days following Doyle and Weiler left their homes ra North Dakota again, Doyle with a stranger, whom they believed to be Weiler, and arrived in Snowflake. They put their horses up at a livery barn, started to walk across the prairie, and Doyle came back alone. Some months afterwards the body of Weiler was accidentally discovered in a ravine, two and a half miles from Snowflake. A bullet wound through the head Indicated the manner of death, and the pockets had been rifled of papers, money and jewelry. Some of these papers, together with deceased's prayer book, were found between the body and Snowflake, on the route accused would have followed returning to the town. When nothing had been heard of Weiler for some time his friends grew suspicious and Doyle was first arrested on the charge of kidnaping. While in jail he went out one day in an effort to procure bail, and at one of the places he visit ed a watch which had belonged to the deceased was found. Intense Interest Winnipeg Free Press: No criminal case in Manitoba for many years, has created the same Interest as has this one, in fact the interest extends large ly to the other side of the line, both victim and accused having been with Dakota farmers, and many of the un usually large numbers of witnesses here are from that state. FORGEjM CHECK Han Named Noah, Arrested at Derlls Lake, Claims to be Simple Minded. A story comes from Devils Lake to the effect that a man named D. Mean was arrested there yesterday charged with check forging. He drew a check on the First National bank for $32 and signed Mr. Whlttier the railway con tractor. He tried to get it cashed at several different places. When ariest ed a letter was found in his pockets postmarked Valley City, from which It appears that he forged a check for a small amount at that place and was being reminded of it. The man claims he has a family at Valley City, and pretends to be simple minded. He waived examination and was placcd under $1,000 bonds for his appearance at the next term of court, in default of which he was confined In the Ram sey county jail. Shopping Today. J. C. Murphy, a prominent farmer of AgneB township, accompanied by his wife and daughter, was in the city to day. Mr. Murphy was looking after business matters and the ladles were doing some shopping. MR.

WE WILL HAVE 25JH0 PEOPLE IN TEN 1EMB Prominent Grookston Real Es tate Man Thinks Well of Our Future. UNBIASED VIEW TAKEN Opportunities Here Better Than in Average North west City. A prominent real estate man of Crookston who was recently in this city, In discussing the prospects of Grand Forks, stated that there was no question that it would be a city of 25,000 in ten years. He is one of the best informed city real estate men In the northwest and, as a matter of course, was looking at the condition from an unbiased standpoint. He can see the advantages of the city as a shipping center and at the same time realizes the advantages which will come as the result of the development of the Industrial enterprises which must be located somewhere in the northwest in a very few years. Once it is started on a new expansion it will grow by leaps and bounds. One of the significant statements made by him was that real estate was cheaper in this city as an Investment than in any other city in the northwest. Con sidering the opportunities for an in crease in valuation compared with other cities, there is no better place in which to Invest with the practical insurance of an Immense profit. MACHINERY SALE UNSETTLED Capitalist Hade Arrangements for Purchase of Machinery From G. F. Woolen Hill. Mr. Coopey, an Englishman from Portland, Ore., who has been In the city for several days, left last night for the east, where he will endeavor to interest eastern capital in a large woolen mill to be erected in his home state. While in this city, Mr. Coopey made arrangements for shipping the last of the machinery from the Grand Forks Woolen Mill to Portland. The deal for the purchase of the machinery has not been closed yet, and It Is not positively sure that the pur chase will be made, but Mr. Copey has made a deposit on the deal and is very confident that he can raise the neces sary amount of capital to push the venture. However, the machinery has not been purchased yet, and if Mr. Coopey is not able to Interest eastern capital, the deal may come to naught. If his eastern trip Is successful, the machinery will be shipped to Gordon Falls, a new town on the Columbia river in Washington, and will there be used in the new mill. The site is admirably situated with reference to water power and also to fuel and, In addition to this, there is plenty of stone and other building material. The Grand Forks mill was shut down sev eral months ago on account of the great distance from the wool market. The Washington venture, on account of the nearness to the base of sup plies, is expected to be a success. There is an abundance of wool In that section of Washington. Grand Opening ol the New Ontario Store From the opening of the doors at 8 o'clock this morning, a constant stream of people passed into the new Ontario store, many of them coming from a distance out of town for tin occasion, which marked the twenty fifth anniversary establishment of the business as well as the formal open ing of the new or greater Ontario store, a magnificent building, four stories high and completed only this fall. It is second to none between the twin cities and the coast, either in point of size, modern equipment or lines of goods carried. Mr. R. B. Griffith, the proprietor, was at the main entrance to greet eacn comer with a cordial shake of the hand. Many of these had been con stant customers sii.ee the beginning of the business, nearly a quarter of a Century ago. Strains of music greeted the ear and great vases of American beauty roses on every hand gave one the impression of entering one of the magnificent dry goods emporiums of the eastern cities. The decorations throughout the store were artistic, many arches and pillars entwined with green foliage and yel low crysanthemums. being used with striking effect. The windows were especially decor ated for the occasion by experts and presented a beautiful appearance. Each lady was directed to the office where she was presented with a dainty and useful little souvenir, a small round hand mirror, suitable for use in the purse or opera bag. If a man's honor and integrity in business is marked by the loyalty and length of services of his employe more than by any other means then that of Mr. Griffith can certainly be considered of the highest order. A THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. THE HERALD LIES 1 Its Misrepresentation of Facts in Reporting All G. 0. P. Meetings. BECOMING ABOMINABLE Trouble is Failure of Cam paign Funds Sufficient to Satisfy Its Greed. A prominent republican who has been at many of the republican meet ings south of this place, was seen by an Evening TimeB representative iu reference to the reports of the Herald that these meetings had been failures and in substance he said: Incidentally, the people are becom ing both amused and indignant at the frantic efforts of th.it sheet to creaU an impression over the state that there Is even a mild enthusiasm exhibited over the fast falling cause of Herald ism. It reported that only a few at tended the Hatton meeting while as a matter of fact thert, were nearly 500 people in attendance. The town is not a large one and when compared with the Icicle reception tendered the democrats in the largest city in the state last night there were less than 200 present, Is not only a source o. amusement to the people who know as every intelligent man does know, the facts in the case. The Aneta meeting was reported as a failure by the democratic morning daily, while the truth is there was not standing room for those who attended. A demo crat who was present stated that there were 800 people in the hall and packed around the door so that they could hear. The misrepresentations of the Herald have made it a laughing stock in the places where the meetings are held, while In the other places the republicans are simply indignant at the malicious statements made by a paper which has always been paid a good price forjts support of the re publican ticket in the past and which refuses to support it now that the con nection between the campaign funds and its coffers Is broken. COYLE'S PANS CAUGHT Both of the Hen Who Perpetrated Holdup at Newport Now In Toils. (By H. C. Mitchell.) Minot, N. D., Nov. 2.—Lawrence Ol son, who with Jack Coyle attempted a wholesale robbery at Newport, an in land town eighteen miles north of Kenmare, Tuesday night, was captured Wednesday after a hard chase on the part of the authorities. Olson learned of Coyle's arrest and started for Cana da. He was stopping at his former working place near Patterson, a mile and a half this side of the Canadian line when he was arrested. Both men are now in the county jail. Coyle says he was drunk when the deed was attempted. Arvllla Meeting. The meeting at Arvilla last night was a rouser. The jail at that place was packed and every available point of standing room was utilized by the voters who wanted to hear something about the true condition of the cam paign. The speakers were Don Mc Donald, republican candidate for coun ty treasurer, James Twamley and J. D. Bacon. Every body talked in be half of the straight ticket, and the rounds of applause which greeted every reference to this showed that the people of Arvilla are not republi can infidels. The efforts of the Her ald to Induce the cutting of the ticket which Is being used by the democrats on the county ticket to induce the cutting of the ticket for themselves has aroused an indignation that is said they were going to Mohall, but at first inclined to consider voting for FIsk and Burke will refuse to do so. They will not allow even their friend ship for the democratic candidate for Bupreme judge to be used to defeat their friends on the county ticket word in connection with the heads of departments will prove this. A. L. Larson, manager of the dry goods department, has been with the store eight years, beginning in the capacity of clerk. A. R. Wltherel, floor walker, has been with the store eleven years beginning as clerk. Mr. L. H. Carter, manager of the grocery department, is the longest in Mr. Griffith's employ of any of his force, beginning with the store twenty-four years ago. Thos. C. Griffith has been in charge of the business office for seventeen years. Ed Olson, manager of the clothing department, has been with the Ontario ten years. H. W. Randall, manager of the cloak and suit department, has been with the store eleven years. Albert Olson, man ager of the shoe department, has served five years. Another long in the serviop is Earl Irish, manager of the book and stationery depart ment, five years. R. M. Bushee, man ager of the furniture department, Is a new man brought here from years of service with Marshall Field & Co. In Chicago, and known as a connis seuer of oriental rugs and draperies of which the Ontario has a magnifi cent line. K. H. Hofte is another new man, manager of the hardware depart ment, and brings years of experience with him. Mr. J. Simpson, head of the crockery and china department. Is a comparatively new man also, being in Mr. Griffith's service but one year, but in that time showing his fitness for the position. Besides these heads of departments, there are numerous employes from the delivery men to the ladies in the various dry goods departments, who have been in the service of the On tario for many years. QUEER liS 10 BE till Everything From a Sausage Grinder and1 False Teeth to a Switch. ARE TO BE SECURED Someone Expected to Pawn an Elephant One of These Days. One of these days before very long someone is going to fill up one of the lower DeMers avenue pawnshops. Somebody is going to pawn an ele phant. Why not? Everything else has at one time or another adorned the ticket hook in one or more of the loan offices and when the demand for ele phants becomes a little greater and the price of hay a little less expensive, they, too, will wind up behind the loan counter. For the present, however, the man whose sign is three gilded balls, Is content with plug hats, false teeth, shower baths ear-rings. Indeed a look into one of the local shop6 will con vince you that the pawnbroker will take anything that can squeeze be tween the portals, or can be located and found by a miscroscope when wanted. These are gladsome days, truly, for the Joan broker. Harvesters returning from the fields of the state spend their hard earned wages in one of the numerous drink emporiums across the river, and as a last re course for a ticket home, gravitate their watches, rings and even coats and caps to the pawn shop. Even in these days of cheer, the broker must be discreet and carefully edit the many queer things that come his way. When the Evening Times representative entered one of the shops this afternoon the proprietor Was en deavoring to straighten out one of the curious tangles that constantly bobs up like a new issue in a political cam paign. It appears that a young man with $2.50 in his pocket and who very badly needed $3, entered the shop the day before and pawned $1.50 for $1. Therefore he had just $2 in ready cash, meeting a friend, he sold the pawn ticket for $1 and had $3. The ques tion then was, "Who was out the extra 50 cents?" A look into the "molar" department of this shop would bring the query "Why should anyone want to pawn his teeth however hard up one may be? In the days of Victor Hugo, ladies who sold their whole mouthful, one at a time, there may have been some in ducement, provided the teeth were good. They brought as much as $5 a piece then. But teeth are a drug on the market just now, and whole sets may be had for the price formerly asked for one tooth. Still, the pawn broker informed the Evening TimeB man that less than a week ago a lady pawned her false teeth. A glance in another of the pawn shops disclosed the fact that the pro prietor maintained a special show case for woman's hair goods. He ex plained that a woman who pawned her hair didn't often come back for it, for, as a rule, she can grow another crop at a hairdressers. On this account the pledge is nearly as good as a pur chase and the price is low accordingly. The broker jokingly told the reporter that he had many misplaced switches but never any wrecks. Most of this surplus hair is resold by the broker to hairdresser establishments and is made over into switches that look as though they had grown on the own er's head. In one of the shops further down the street were several rows of brass knuckles, some glistening and new, others significant of wear, mute wit nesses to many a harrowing tale ol woe and bloodshed. One can make a fine choice of knuckles in that shop. Further back in the window was a prayer book and a shower bath with several feet of hose twined around the base. This same broker has a prom ising lot of enamel letters, peeled by enterprising persons from store win dows, and an increditable number of hammers and meerschum pipes with bowls as big as one's fist and gay with nymphs and tritons frolicking upon them. All these are to be had. Neither are sausage grinders alto gether neglected, nor anything else that one could think of in a day's stroll through these storehouses of family treasures. THE STORY £SALT0N SEA T. B. Brandemeyer, a Visitor In the City. Tells How This Wonderful Inland Lake Was Formed. An article under associated press SABLES WILL CARRY TILL COUNTY BY GOOD MAJORITY-THE RALLY AT MAYVILLE news in the Evening Times last eve ning resulted in the paper being the recipient of a short visit from one of Arizona's prominent citizens, T. B. Brandemeyer, of Yuma, Colo. The visitor who stopped over in this city for a visit with a friend, wanted fur ther reports on the article which at tracted Mr. Brandemeyr's attention. This news read as follows: "Ban Francisco, Nov. 1.—Tho Salton nea will be doomed tomorrow. Officials of the Southern Pacific announce that the last stepB have been taken and the Colorado river will be turned Into Its old channel and no more water will Mow Into the groat Inland sea. The break in the banks of the Colorado river has been filled In with plies and stone, and the last gap will be closed today. The work of checking the flow of the river through the break In the bank has coat the Southern Pacific in the neighborhood of *1,000,000." "Well," said the visitor, "that is news indeed. The Colorado river in the vicinity of my home town has been causing all kinds of trouble. Engi neers have been working on the task of checking the depredations for a long time, and so at last they have succeeded. American brains with un limited backing in the way of money, can accomplish almost anything and I will watch the papers closely to see if the work is entirely successful." Mr. Brandemeyer then went into de tails and told how the trouble origi nated Ranches on the desert in Southern California wanted water, and an irrigation engineer volunteered to get it for them. He tapped the Col orado river and the floods overcame him. The river tore its way through anew course, and until today, man has been unable to check the torrent, al though six previous attempts were made. "Strong dikes were built, but none of them were strong enough to with stand the tremendous force of the cur rent. This last attempt has been the final effort to reclaim the 150 miles of railroad track, the 800,000 acres of irrigated land, to save a dozen little towns and to prevent a $2,000,000 ir rigation dam from becoming worthless. About $15,000,000 worth of property in all was at stake, and I see by the re port that the cast of the work has been over $1,000,000. "The point where the Colorado de teriorated from its true course was just over the boundary line between Arizona and Mexico. It flowed through the new channel into the de pression designated as the Salton Sink or Salton Sea. The lower part of the depression is 287 feet below the level of the sea and the water has until now, been rising at the rate of three inches a week. "The new course of the river had no bottom or sides. The water flowed through bottomless deposits of silt earth as soluble as sugar. Piles driven down into this siet earth were popped up into the air and floated down the stream. The dams were undermined and there was noth ing to tie to besides the sand. This was the task which confronted the en gineers who have now brought the un dertaking to a successful close. I see the Southern Pacific has furnished the money. There was some dispute over this question when I left Arizona several months ago Tor an extensive tour of the country." Mr. Brandemeyer is a very interest ing talker and is thoroughly conver sant with conditions in all parts of the United States and volunteered the Evening Times man some interesting information. BOTH THE MEN WERE FINEO Attacked Two Lads With Fists and Pitchforks on Hallowe'en Night GItch $5 Doses. The two men, Jack Dott and Dalton Bushee, who struck and severely in jured two lads on Wednesday night were arrested yesterday afternoon and arraigned last night in Judge Purcells court. Dott, charged with striking Paul Dorshel in the face and over the back of the head with a pitchfork or other sharp instrument, was fined $5 and costs, while his partner Bushee, charg ed with striking the other lad Frank Newark, was given a similar dose. The amounts were paid. The attacks took place during the excitement on Hallowe'en night when the boys were on their way home. They passed up the alley between Dell and lone avenues when the two attacker's sprung out of the darkness and badly maltreated them. The me.i, it seems, were hiding in the hopes of catching some the the youngsters who had damaged property earlier in the evening. Paul Dorshel, one of the boys, was badly cut about the head, one gash being several inches in length and down to the bone. Bljon Theatre. The show at the Bijou was changed last evening and again gave the usual satisfaction. With the exception of "A Corsican Chastisement" all of the pictures are In a comic vein and caused a great deal of laughter.

He imitates pigs, chickens, dogs, the wind blowing, a pump and various other sounds with a violin with life-like fidelity.

Dakota PAGE NINE At Last Night's Rally the Gov ernor Placed Himself Em phatically Upon Record in Re the Prohibition Question —Will Veto Any Attempt to Change the Law. THE LEME REM) OF E States Attorney E. R. Sinkler on the Question of In surgentism. Special to The Even lag Mayville, N. D., Nov. 2.—A rousing republican meeting which called out an attendance of several hundred peo ple was held in this city last evening. The rally was addressed by the gover nor himself and by States Attorney E. R. Sinkler of Grafton, Walsh coun ty. His excellency, the governor, was the first to speak. He recounted some thing of the legislative history of the state, going back to the days when John Burke, now democratic candi date for governor of this great state, was in the legislature and lighting for the repeal of that law which has given this state a reputa.ion, national and International, as being one of the fore most Christian commonwealths of the world. Three times did this man Burke exert his every power to defeat the prohibition law. During the course of his remarks Governor Sarles expressed himself emphatically on the prohibition ques tion in the following words: "There shall be no repeal of the prohibition law as long as I am the governor of this state, and if any attempt is made along these lines by the legislature, I shall place the stamp of my official disapproval thereupon, by the exer cise of my right of veto." This statement ellc\ed great ap plause, and the governor was cheered to the echo. Again he said: "I intend to be the governor of this sUte in every sense of the word, and I do not now nor will not wear any man's collar." The speaker held the attention of his hearers throughout the entire ad dress, and at the conclusion he was vociferously applauded. States Attorney E. R. Sinkler of Grafton, Walsh county, followed. Said Mr. Sinkler in part. "You gentlemen r^neighbors, know Governor Sarles well twenty-live years of honest, upright action and fair dealing among you, gives you a guarantee of his honesty, without a label afllxed by a political conven tion. (Cheers.) Speaking of the cause of insurgent ism, Mr. Sinkler referred to the fact that this trouble within the republican party had already been fought out that now with the democrats on the scene and fighting for supremacy, all republicans, whether stalwarts or in surgents, should stand shoulder to shoulder and fight the common enemy that It would be foolish now to desert the party and turn It over to the demo crats whose power is now and always has been a menace to onr county. Judging from the reception accorded the governor's party here, he is mak ing friends every day. It Is conser vatively estimated now that he will secure 75 per cent of the votes to Traill county. Rallies are to be held today a Galesburg and Clifford. The meeting held yesterday afternoon at Fortlanc was well attended, about 350 peinf present. The same enthusiasm tha marked last night's rally at this plact greets the speakers everywhere thej go. Foot Ball University Minnesota VS. University Nebraska Northrup Field, Minneapolis.
