8. TENDERLY AT IT Last Tribute of Respect to Distinguished and Respect ed Oitixen. B. P. 0. E. RITUAL USED Impressive Ceremony at Bier by Local Lodge of Mfca— Tributes of Flowers. Amid a profusion of towers which Dee poke as could no other language the love and respect in which he was held by those who knew him best in his life, the last solemn ceremonies over the remains of Warren Bennett Wood were conducted in the parlors of the Dacotah hotel this afternoon. TTio funeral services were in charge of the Benevolent and Protec tive Order of Elks of which he waH a prominent member. The 'services of this devoted order over the remains of a beloved brother were sweetly solemn Indeed, as the members paid their last tribute of respect to the one whom they were consigning to the eternal keeping of the Exalted Ruler of the universe. In the pres ence of the dead and with the hushed silence of souls bowed with grief. Exalted Ruler M. Stanchfield opened the lodge and was followed by the tehder'prayer of the lodge chaplain. .Normal} B. .Black sang in ah impres sive Jn&nner "The Homeland." The other features of.the ritualistic service were observed, and When the secretary called the name of the de parted brother and announced that he had passed into the light Which lies beyond the valley of the. Shadow of death, there were many who 'could not. realise that one who but a few days 'ago was in the flush of health and the Vigor, of manhood's prime could now '1le before them cold in the embrace of death. Yet it is so. The eulogy of Rev. Dr. Frank Har per Hayes with a voice hushed and broken with emotion spoke of the life and character of the dead and testi fied to his merits as a man, a citizen, a husband, a father and a friend. Of him it can be truly said that he was faithful in his adherence to the cause of charity, faithful in justice and brotherly love. Following the exem plification of the principles of the or der the members sweetly sang the ritualistic hymn, "Our,Absent Broth er," and the last sad, rites to the memory of the departed dead were closed. The pall bearers, H. L. Holmes, Wm. Budge, A. D. Stevens, C. L. Van Alstine, Vic Chaffee and W. H. Kelsey bore the casket to the waiting hearse and the funeral procession to Memor ial Park was formed. The long line of carriages which followed the re mains to the last resting place was but another testimonial of the esteem in which he was held by those who knew him best. The flowers were indeed beautiful and came from scores of friends who thus desired to pay this silent though eloquent tribute to the memory of one who was in his life-time a friend to all who knew him. The emblem of the Elks was a beautiful design of the clock with the hands pointing (o II. The.K. P.'s sent a beautiful shield, while the M. W. A. contributed a pil low in white roses. The Mimnnic design was represenatlve of the lyre with the square and compass. The employes of the Dacotah sent a broken arch which probably spoke truer titan any words which were uttered the re spect and confidence of those who were closely associated with him in hia every day work. At the grave, the services were brief on account 'of the inclemency of the weather, the benediction being pro nounced by Rev. Dr Hayes.

FOLLOWED JOG 300 MILES Customs Official Gill of Portal Had Amusing Experience in a Smuggling Episode. H. N. GiU deputy customs inspector for the U. S. government at Portal, N. D., has been spending several days in the city attending the sessions of the United States court. Mr. Gill was one of the witnesses in a whiskey smuggling case, he having caused the arrest of the guilty party. In a con versation with an Evening Times re porter Mr. Gill told of some of hits experiences with smugglers in the vicinity of his port of entry. Portal is peculiarly situated—half of the town standing in the United States and the other half in King Edward's domain and because of this fact it Is doubly hard to detect smuggling in its every phase. However, enough arrests are made to put a gevare check on the practice. Mr. Gill told of a 300-mile chase after a jug of whiskey. Several weeks ago he was engaged in his routine task of inspecting baggage in a "Soo" car when a large jug covered with a cloth was thrust into the door way. When Mr. Gill got around to the jug he jerked the stopper and detected the strong odor of choice Canadian whiskey. He replaced the stopper and waited for a claimant. The train reached South Portal and still no owner appeared so the in spector determined to follow it to its destination. He stuck to the car until It reached Mlnot and the whiskey re mained unclaimed. Jug and inspector went on and on down the Soo until Carrlngton was reached. Then the offi cial realizing that hia 300-mile trip had availed nothing, shouldered the jug and took a homebound train. This Is but one of the many incidents connected with the work of the cus tom official In Uncle Sam's employ. Although many arrests sare THE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N. D. 6. M. TRftMS IH C8HSH Fatal Collision At 6 o'clock This Morning Two Miles Northwest of Crookston Between Engine Pulling Caboose And Heavy Freight Train—One Dead And Five Injured—Blinding Blizzard Prevented Engineers From Seeing?Ap proaching Trains. Just where the blame for the wreck lies could not be learned. The en gineer of 415, Arnold, claims to have had an order to meet the engine at Hixon, which is further up the line. The men on arriving in Crookston were so benumbed with cold that it was impossible for them to give many of the details of the affair. A special train went out from Crookston as soon as the report came in, and the conductors of the two crews took charge of the work about the wreck for a time. Finally, however, owing to their injuries and the severe cold and the blinding snow storm, they were obliged to discontinue the work. The freight'train crew geepis to have met with the most serious'injury, the fireman who was killed being on that engine. Several of the cars back of the engine piled up in the wreck, and the wreckage .Is: BQ badly mixed, that it was impossible to do much without line of business the. a is a conscience fund—money paid in by persons who had at some time In their lives .smuggled into this country. During tho past summed the inspectors were several ..times amused by the letters from the conscience stricken popula tion. In one of these epistles a lady told of having bought dress goods to the amount of several dollars into this country as sh« was returning from a visit oyer ten years ago. She complained of' having spent many sleepless nights since that time thinking of the terrible misdeed. No doubt her wounded feelings were somewhat soothed, when the inspec tor Informed her that citizens of the United States were allowed to carry back with them merchandise such as wearing apparel to the amount of $100. North Dakota clothing 1-4 Off Sr^rl made by the authorities, very seldom it is that a culprit offers resistance to the officials. In this as well as in every 200 the regular wrecking crew Engineer Arnold, who lives at Crookston, was on the freight train, and it was his fireman who was kill ed. The brakeman and conductor of this train were also injured but the worst feature following the accident was the intense biting cold. Train No. 5, from Minneapolis and St. Paul, running via Crookston was sent here from Crookston over the Northern Pacific line, and arrived this afternoon. The wreck is near the St. Vincent junction of the Great North ern, and the road is effectually block ed up that way. Both trains were going fast, and in the darkness and the storm, the crews probably did not see each other until they were almost together. The engine running with the caboose was one of the large type, and it com pletely smashed the smaller engine.

Heretofore the old-fash ioned system has been in vogue at Jamestown and it has been necessary for users of the service to ring up central before they could get con nections, but now it will only be necessary to remove the receiver from the hook. HE SEEKS MjJSSESSMENT Law to Hake Seal Value the Basis Probably Will be Urged—Wal lace at the Head. G. E. Wallace of Wahpeton, presi dent of the State Association of Com mercial clubs, is at the head of a movement to have real and personal property In this state assessed at its real value. At present all property is assessed at froin one-fifth to one fourth of its real value, and farm property is assessed on a much lower basis than city property. All cities in the state are placed at a decided disadvantage when they try to float bonds, on account of the low assess ment. It is claimed that if all prop erty were assessed at its actual value the burden of taxation would be more jnstly distributed am the increase would be of great benefit to all cities and the state at large. A bill proba bly will be introduced in the coming session of the legislature to change the methods of equalizing assess ments. HAWKES HERETO TESTIFY BemMjl Lumberman Told Story «t How He Was Bobbed by Nelson In the District Court Richard Hawke, the Bemidjl lumber man was in. Grand Forks yesterday for the purpose of telling the story of bow he was robbed here thtB fall by a man named Nelson, who was con victed. The robbery was committed last September, when Mr. HaWkes was in Grand Forks securing men for the Crookston Lumber company. He had hired sixty-five men and was given a special car |n which to send his la borers to Bemidjl. "Dick" entered the car to ascertain if all of his proteges were on hand, when he discovered that five men whom he had not hired were also aboard as passengers eastward bound. He politely told them to leave the car. At the same time a train backed a sleeping car against the private "lumberjack" car with such a force that Mr. Hawkes was knocked to the floor, and two of the uninvited passengers set upon him and one took away his pocket book. They were ar rested shortly afterwards. The Socialist vote in Richland was 23—and the party appears to have ski dooed down there, all right.
