IMRTINDSYLEFIIEED OF CHARGE OF North Dakota Farmer on Trial for Life at Morden, Manitoba, IS FOUND "NOT GUILTY" Trial Jury Was But An Hour in Arriving at a Verdict. The case of the crown against Mar, tin Doyle under charge of murder in the first degree at Morden, Man. was concluded yesterday afternoon and an hour later the twelve men comprising the jury brought in a verdict of "not guilty." The jury retired at exactly 10 minutes after 4 o'clock and filed in wHJi the anxiously awaited result at 6 o'clock or a little less than an hour. The trial has been one of the most sensational In the history of the prov ince of Manitoba, and the dally sur prises acted as a stimulus to the ac tivity on the part of the spectators who daily streamed in and listened eagerly to the testimony of each wit ness. For a trial which has been of such absorbing interest throughout, the finish was decldely dead. Before the Jury retired, his lordship, Justice Richards, made a strong plea in favor of Doyle and on this account it was expected that a verdict of not guilty would be brought in. The justice pointed out that the evidence was largely circumstantial and much of it unworthy of credence. The case at times looked very bad for the accused and the added compli cations brought In by the testimony of Thompson the convict in stating that Pat Rooney, the murderer executed at Bismarck a year ago, had read a let ter from Doyle to his son asking that certain witnesses against him be put out of the way, only made Doyle's case look worse. Doyle is well known in this state, and when his arrest was made last winter there was much speculation and surprise. He has been in this city many times within the past tw6 or three years in company with friends from his home near Cavalier. Most of the witnesses in the case were North Dakota farmers residing near Mt Carmel. The two men, Doyle and Weiler, were friends and neighbors, and dur ing the winter Weiler suddenly disap peared, being seen last with Doyle. Doyle produced a deed of Welter's land, claiming that Weiler had gone to the Northwest. Doyle was then ar rested for kidnapping, but was re leased for lack of evidence. Later in the year the dead body was found by a mounted policeman. A bullet hole through the skull showed the manner of death. ARNOLD IS HELD FOR TRIAL Arrainged Yesterday In Larimore on Charge of Attempted Suicide —1600 Bonds. Charles G. Arnold, the man who had a hearing before the insanity board In this city Thursday afternoon and was discharged, was arraigned yester day in Larimore on the charge of at tempted suicide. After a lengthy pre liminary trial, Arnold was bound over to the district court on bonds of $500. He furnished the money and was al lowed to go free until'the district court convenes. The hearing was before Justice Uffleman. Arnold has been in the limelight In one way or another for several months. He figured in a sensational divorce suit two months ago. Last .Wednes day afternoon he went to the home of a farmer near Larimore where his wife was being cared for and demanded an interview with her, threatening at the came time to shoot himself if she did not appear before he counted ten. She refused to see him or to have any thing to do with him and he drew a revolver and shot twice, injuring him self slightly. He was then brought to this city and arraigned on a charge of insanity. Upon his dismissal on this charge as stated above, his arrest on a charge of attempted suicide fol lowed immediately. OLD STARS PIT I GAME It is Possible That a Football Game Be tween High School and Alamnl Will Be Arranged. High school football enthusiasts and former school stars are already tak ing up the matter of an alumni foot ball game to be played with the high school boys on Thanksgiving day, weather permitting. The alumni team two years ago when the last game was played, proved too strong for the high school champions but this year it looks aB though the old-timers have but lit tle shown. The score two years ago was 3 to 0 in favor of the alumni team.' There is plenty of available timber in close proximity in the state, and if the game Is decided upon a fast and furnous contest can be looked forward to. In the line the old-timers will have a pick from, Van Alstlne, Brooks and Budge, ends Dormeier, Woods and Currie, tackles, and several men for' the center trio. In the backfleld, Wells, Pawcett, Hawkins, Miller, Hunter and HyBlop could work out a combination that would work havoc to the high school defense. The almunl boosters figure upon the team having several practices In for mations and signals during the week before the Thanksgiving date and in that may to have a perfect set of plays with no fumbles to mar the progress of the work.

USE OF TONGUEWAS POISON Therefore P. P. Treny Sues Relatives for Damages Amounting to 910,000. One of the most sensational suits instituted for several years in this part of the state is that recently filed In Traill county by Peter P. Tveny against A. C. Masher, Guine Masher and Christian Masher for $10,000 dam ages. The plaintiff charges that the defendants, who are relatives of his wife, used their influence to poison her mind against him and that by mis representations they finally succeeded in inducing her to sue for divorce and that because of these misrepresenta tions he was deprived of her love and affection, and that he is therefore damaged in the amount indicated. The case will be bitterly fought as there is considerable feeling both sides. BISHOPHUWONon IRATORY Delivered Convocation Address at Uni versity on the Subject of Oratory. University chapel was crowded this morning at convocation exercises, when Rt. Rev. Cameron Mann, Epis copal bishop for North Dakota gave an address on the' subject of "Ora tory." Rev. Mann is an able speaker himself, and while he does not claim to be an orator, is well qualified by experience and education to discuss the subject of oratory. The word has its deviation from the Latin word, "Orare," meaning to pray or to plead, and the modern definition is the art of persuading by means of speech. There are four requisites to a success ful orator. First, he must have knowl edge second, he must know how to convey it third, he must know his audience, and fourth, he must himself be a good man. Bishop Mann stated that he considered Lincoln's Gettys burg speech the best ever delivered, while Lincoln's second inaugural ad dress is admitted by the critics of the world to be the most absolute perfect exposition ever delivered.

Brynjolfson, Latter as Administrator FOR PERSONAL INJURIES Plaintiff Fell and Was Hurt in East Grand Forks Saloon. An action for the recovery of $10, 000 damages has been instituted lu the district court of this county by J. H. McVeety against M. J. Lynch and B. 8. Brynjolfson the latter as administrator of the estate of the late A. J. Gallagher, deceased Thi. grounds of the action are that during the lifetime of Mr. Gallagher he and the defendant Lynch were partners in trade, and as such were conducting the piace in East Grand Forks known as the Lynch & Gallagher saloon. McVeety charges that the floor of the toilet room of the place was defec tive, and that while the saloon was open to the public he entered the same and that because of the defect and the wet and slippery tondition of the floor, he fell and that the fall resulted in the fracture of the neck of the thigh bone, and caused some other in juries to his leg, by virtue of which the limb has been rendered useless that he has been compelled to use crutches ever since, and that the in jury is permanent. The defense has demurred to the declaration John A. Sorley and Scott Rex represent the plaintiff and George A. Bangs the defendants. LUMBER MENSHIP SUPPLIES Buying Up the Carload from Local Firms and Shipping to the Woods. Lumber companies and large con tractors have begun to figure on sup plies with local firms and this is taken as a sure sign of cold weather. The companies get supplies in carload lots for use in the pine woods around Bemidji, Cass Lake and other points in northern Minnesota.- For several weeks past the contractors who are establishing from one to two or three camps in northern Minnesota have been shipping supplies from this city in comparatively small quantities, but now the "big fellows" are coming into tho market and getting priceB, not on a few barrels of flour, a few bushels of potatoes or beans and a few hundred pounds of meat, but the best figure they can get on provisions and on meat in carload lots. It is believed that in another week shipments, in carload lots to various camp& and distributing points for camps will begin in dead earnest. The lumbermen feel pretty well assured of cold weather from now on. They have been hesitating about ordering perishable goods, especially fresh meats in large quantities, unless rea sonably certain that the stuff will not spoil by reason of a warm spell of weather. Some camps use a stile of beef in a week, while .others will consume the whole "critter" or, possibly, more than one of them. There are some big companies operating in this part of the country, that order their supplies for distribution among a number of camps at various points, and these have been known to order a carload of beef a week during the busy period when the camps were filled with men. This does not take into account, however, the Immense amount of other provisions that are necessary to feed the army of woodsmen scattered throughtout the many logging camps. Winter logging Is strenuous work, and the average woodsman is a human machine that requires plenty of fuel to keep steamed up to full capacity for work. Past experience has taught the camp providers the necessity of keeping the larder pretty well stocked. While the staple articles are said by some loggers to be beef, beans, pota toes, bread and coffee, the camps of the present times furnish their men with numerous things in the way of eatables and even delicacies which which make the camp bills aggregate a pretty big figure. This trade is a source of considerable revenue each winter to the local wholesalers and jobbers, and it is a trade that is very dollars come into the city and Crooks ton every month during the winter season for camp supplies, to say noth ing of the revenue of retail merchants from outfits furnished the woodsman when he starts out for the camp at the opening of the season's work. Local men that are engaged in the business of handling horses for log glng work are receiving weekly ship ments, sometimes oftener, -of the heax ler class of horses, which seem to be most in demand for heavy hauling operations. A great many of the log gers buy their teams at the opening of the winter season and dispose of them when the camps close In the spring, unless they have contract work in sight Such as railroad construction. They claim it is cheaper for them to buy their teams, use them all winter and sell them In the spring, than it is to attempt to feed and care for them during the summer and fall period. Some carload lots of nice looking horses suitable for the purpose have •been received lately, and at the horse markets the business with the loggers is reported to be first-class. A TRADER AHORT TOTTEN E. A. Palmer. Who Has Seen Trouble, some Times With Indians. In the CHy. Among the visitors in the city today I« pilnim* of Fort Totten. He OM of the prominent char nvmnxo tons, acters of the northern part of the state for more than a quarter of a century. He came to Fort Totten when the Indians were located on the reserva tion, holding the position of Indian trader. He has been on the reserva tion ever since. When the position of Indian trader was abolished, he open ed a store for the supplying of such things as the Indians and the whites on the reservation needed, and by square dealing he has had the respect and confidence of both. He is now the owner of an immense establishment and 1B among the large and influen tial business men of that part of the state. He haB accumulated a snug fortune and is surrounded by all the comforts of modern civilization, though he can relate history of the early times at Fort Totten which now seem like romance. GRAY TO 6ETJ00D BERTH Defeated Candidate for Sheriff to be Slated for State Oil Inspector. A gentleman who Is close to Mayor Duis politically, states that Tom Gray of this city, who was the defeated candidate for sheriff on the democratic ticket, Is slated for the position or state oil inspector under the Burke admin istration. ELECTIONS ARE EXPENSIVE Cost Grand Forks County Over $7,000 to Select New Set of Officers. The tax payers ol Grand Forks county are called upon to foot the bills for the election, and they are no small bills, either. The total expense of the primary election, for the nomin ation of county candidates, was $4, 324. The cost of the regular election will not be far from $3,000, so that in the selection of officers the tax payers of the county have been com pelled to pay more than (7,000. Estimating the average cost of the two elections at $5,000 in each county, in the state, the total cost for the election of county and state officials will be $195,000. This would be below rather than above the estimate, and in all probability the actual legal ex penses will be not far from a quarter million dollars. TO SECURE JURY. Excellent Progress Hade Yesterday in Securing Murphy Case Jury. Fargo, Nov. 10.—Although no per son was definitely decided upon as a juryman for the trial of the case of the state vs. J. 8. Murphy yesterday, excel lent progress was made In the exam ination of candidates and it is quite probable that the requisite number of jurors will be chosen today. A good many jurors were examined yesterday and it is said there are several promis ing men who are likely to be chosen, while almost all who have been ex amined are more or less familiar with the case there are many who did not listen to the evidence in the case and who are not prejudiced. The court and attorneys recognize that it would be impractical to secure men not con versant with some of the facts of the case secured at the former trial or by conversation with someone knowing something of the action, but there are plenty of men capable of acting as jurors notwithstanding their knowl edge of the case. Not many examined have admitted prejudice for or against the defendant. Old Arkansaw.

NEXT LEGISLATURE Thirty-One Republicans and Nine Democrats in the Senate. MR. HANNA'S STATEMENT In the House Will be Eighty Five Repubs and Fifteen Dems. Chairman L. B. Hanna of the repub lican state central committee, in a long distance interview from Fargo this afternoon, stater that contrary to reports that were being given out and to inferences drawn from other sources, the entire republican ticket with the exception of governor and su preme judge, has been elected, as has also an overwhelmingly republican legislature. According to Chairman Hanna's claim, the next legislature, which con venes this winter at Bismarck, will be composed of democratic senators to the number of nine and representa tives to the house to the number of 10 to 15. At just what disadvantage democratic senators and representa tives will be may be seen from the fact that the legislature is constituted in all of 140 members forty in the senate and one hundred In the house. In the senate there will be thirty-one repub licans and nine democrats, and in the house about eighty-five republicans and fifteen democrats. Sizing up the general results of the election, Chairman Hanna called at tention to the fact that after all, the democrats had not won the victory which they claimed. Even at that they have no right to claim a democratic victory in the election of Governor Burke over Governor Sarles and Judge Fisk over Judge Knauf. The personal popularity of both men, Chairman Hanna believes, and the desire of many people for a change in the executive department, is almost entirely respon Bible for the election of these men. Grand Forks county contributes three democrats to the next legislature one senator and two representatives, all from the Sixth district.

The steamer is owned by the Grand Forks Transportation company of this city, as is also the Steamer Fram. On Tuesday the Grand Forks came down from Drayton with grain in the barges amounting to nearly 25,000 bushels which was transferred to cars at the transfer elevator beneath the bridges at the De Mers avenue crossing. The past season has been a very profitable one with crops and other things taken into consideration. Navigation gener ally closes on the river about the mid dle of November and the boats will tie up several days before the advent of freezing time at least, so as not to have one of the fleet frozen up miles away from the city. This happened once when the Grand Forks was owned and operated by the Great Northern Tail road. The cold spell caught the boat almost twenty miles down stream and the grain had to be transferred into sleigh boxes and carted to this city. Special Sale This Week Mooney'g Bank at Langdon."" W. J.

Hallick occured this morning at 1 o'clock at the Deaconess hospital, where he has been confined since the boiler explo sion of last week in which he was badly burned. Death was entirely un expected, as the sufferer had given sign of improvement every day since he was taken to the hospital. Yester day he was feeling quite well, but later in the evening the sick man took a turn for the worse and died a peace ful death. The deceased Is survived by a brother, Henry Hallick, who re sides on a farm near the city iln Brenna township.
