P4 I r' East Grand Porks, Mar. 16, '07. To The Daily Herald, Grand Porks, N. D. Mr. Editor: I notice in your news columns for tills side of the river you are apparently discrimiinating against the congregation of the' Sacred Heart church, of which I am pastor. I ven ture a few remarks here to place us properly before the people. I went to the office of the Herald personally Friday to meet the business manager and have him run the program of Mon day evening's performance in one or two issues' of the paper. This he was unable to do without me paying ad vertising rates, when all others pa in it a re as to the news and run it as such. I do not admire the principle of the paper in this regard, for they should recognize 1 ft MONDAY, MARCH 18, 1907 STANCHFIELD '. S A S We're in fine featjier for the new Season.

Comfort, Dead Engineer, Brings Suit Against Great Northern Rail way for Damages Through her attorney, Bardl G. Skulason, Mrs. Jennie M. Comfort to day brought suit for $60,000 against the Great Northern Railway company for the death of her husband, Henry J. Comfort.

He was one of the oldest and most re spected engineers on the road and his death was a severe blow to his many friends in the northwest. Attorneys Murphy & Duggan will look after the Great Northern's inter ests. FATHER GREEN TAKES THE G. FORKS HERALD TO TASK this congregation as well as they do the evangelists who, as I, understand, receive all their advertising free. It seems from residents of this city, that the .Herald continues to throw mud and dirt at this city at every opportunity, even in Saturday morning's issue you will find the first and leading article displayed in glaring head lines of the boldest type, calling the attention of the public to one Martin Berg, who wants to kill one Severt Novrhe, and informs him by writing threatening letters. This I presume is to cast re flections on the city and Its people, and the Herald by its scandalizing, and disreputable accounts in the "East Side" columns, is certainly doing much to retard the progress of the city. I for one feel that before I will feel friendly towards this publication they will have to change their tactics towards this city and Its residents, and I. earnestly ask my friends to assist me. TEN TEAMS IN THE DAKOTA LEAGUE The second annual meeting of the Northwest Dakota ball taague was held in White Earth on last Friday night. President J.' C. McGlynn pre siding, with J. W.

OTTO WEBER6 TMEN TO PEI1TET1ART Convicted Han Says He is Sorry For Killing of Anna Engalsrud. THE PARTING SCENE Between Mother and Son in Walsh County Jail a Pathetic One. Otto Weberg, convicted of murder admits that he remembers of the kill ing of Anna Engalsrud at Fairdale. He Bays-he is sorry that he committed the crime, hut gives no reason for the commission of the horrible deed. The convicted man was in Grand Forks Sunday evening in charge of Sheriff Hankey of Walsh county and Deputy Sheriff Wilson. He was brought here on Train No. 138 of the Great Northern, transferred to Train No. 10 and taken to Fargo. From there they went to Bismarck over the Nor thern Pacific, and on arriving there, Weberg will seo the place in which he will spend the remainder of his life—the penitentiary of the state of North Dakota. Weberg was sitting contentedly in his seat In' the smoking car of train No. 10 when the Evening Times re porter saw folm. He was smoking a cigar, and seemed to take little inter est in the trip. His eyes are peculiar. He keeps looking from one place to another, being unable, it. seems, to keep them in any one place for any length of time. He wore a pair of blue overall pants, a black' coat and a black shirt, a slouch hat and seemed to be right at home in the car seat. He was not handcuffed, the two officials being with htm all the time so there was no chance for him to make a break for liberty. Saturday afternoon, the aged father and mother of the murderer bid their son good by In the Walsh county jail, where they had been admitted by Sheriff Hankey. The scene was a touching one, the mother being almost prostrated with grief. In the court room, when the verdict was read, there was another touching scene. Mrs. Weberg broke down completely, al though the convicted man seemed to be a trifle relieved at the recommenda tion of a life sentence instead of death in the hangman's noose. The story of Weberg's love, with failure in the end resulting In the mur der of the object of his affection, to whom on the stand he swore that he would do no harm knownlngly, Is a sad one. When Weberg Is landed behind the bars of the state penitentiary, the closing scene in a sensational case will have been enacted. It has been a long time since a murder trial in North Dakota has aroused so much interest. The details surrounding the crime were of such a sensational nature and the deed Itself was such a cold-blooded one, that from one end of the state to the other, the developments in the case were closely watched. ST. PATRICK ENTERTAINMENT St Michaels Church Scene of Enjoy able Gathering on Saturday Night. The birthday of the Ireland's patron saint was fittingly celebrated on Sat urday night in the auditorium of St. Michaels church when the wearers of the shamrock gathered and listened to a program both lyrrlcal and oratori cal, a program essentially appropriate to the birthday of St. Patrick. Father Conaty delivered a masterful address. In his usual style and was followed by song and recitation by some of the best talent in the city. Miss Duffess sang the old song "Kil larney" in a very pretty manner, fol lowed by Miss Agnes DeRoche who favored the audience, with "The Last Rose of Summer." Cleary Monley re ceived a hearty ovation for his rendi tion of "It must have been Svengalle in disguise.". Baby Lynch also made a "hit" with "O'Reilly" and Miss Pauline Allen received several en cores after singing "The Bee." It was a musical program generally speaking, one in which "Songs gushed from the heart As showers from the clouds of summer Or tears from the eyelids start," However the recitations of Miss Genevieve O'Keefe on "Sheridan's Ride' 'and Miss Ethel Kaufman '"He was there and so was I" were heartily enjoyed. The numbers by the chorus of girls were also of high order, "St. Patricks Day" being especially well received. RAISED STOCKJO $50,000 Former Grand Porkers Meeting Suc cess in Business Field—P.

TOWLE RETJUNS HIS SEAT 01 Park River Man Denies Having Removed From the State. ONLY ONE NEW MEMBER University Board of Regents Will Hold Important Meet ing April 3. H. T. Helgesen, of Milton, one of Governor Burke's appointees to the board of regents of the state univer sity, a democrat, will not be permitted to take his seat, according to informa tion which The Evening Times has In its possession. Mr. Helgesen was appointed to fill a supposed vacancy on the board, vice Hon. Geo. E. Towle, Park River George W. Towle of Park River whom the governor was lead to believe had given up- his residence in this state and would therefore resign. Mr. Towle was a visitor in the city on Sunday, enroute to his home at Park River, and in an interview stated that he still maintains his residence in North Dakota and has no idea of giv ing up the same. "The fact that I have interests in Minneapolis has no particular bear ing upon my place of legal residence. Practically all the investments I own Hon. Herman Shirley, Enderlin, retir ing member are in North Dakota. I do not expect to give up my place on the university board of regents until my term expires on the first Tuesday in April 1909." This leaves the'board as previously comprised, with the exception that Jas. V. Brooke of Cando, takes the place of Herman Shirley of Enderlin whose term will expire on-the first Tuesday in April 1907. The first meeting of the new board will be held on Wednesday, April 3, when a session of extraordinary im portance to the state's leading institu tion will be convened. The following are the members of •the board: William Budge, Stephen Collins, Grand Forks J. G. Gunderson, Aneta George E. Towle, Park River and Jas. V. Brooke, Cando. WORK WILL JE RESUMED The Aneta-Devils Lake Extension of the Great Northern to Be Com pleted This Tear. Preparations are being made to re sume work on the Aneta-Devils Lake extension of the Great Northern. Rails on this extension wero laid to within ten miles of Devils Lake before the cold weather set in last fall. During the winter no attempt was made to run trains beyond Aneta and the new part of the line became completely blocked with enow. A snow bucking outfit and 250 laborers are now at work clearing the line. In some places the snow is piled to a depth of from twelve to fifteen feet while in others it is frozen to the track and mingled with ice, so that it is necessary to use picks to clear it away. Progress is slow but it is believed the line will be cleared as far as the rails have been laid with in a short time, and the work of track construction will be resumed. COMMISSION OKGAMZKS. Frank J.

ELECTION OF Most, Successful Meeting in History of No. 255 Held on Saturday. C. E. LAZIER EX-RULER Large Class of Candidates Went Through the Mill Swell Banquet. The election of officers of the Elks lodge on Saturday night resulted In C. E. Lazier being chosen exalted ruler. The meeting was one of the largest and most successful ever held by No. 255, and Elks from every part of the United States, from San Francisco to Pittsburg, were present. A large class of candidates went through the initiatory proceedings, Rolla, N. D., being especially well rep resented. Some of the "stunts" set before the trembling aspirants were rather unique and ingenious, but all went through without so much as a mishap, due no doubt to the "don't for candidates," which were published previous to the meeting. The Elks started the work at 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon, thereby getting the routine part of the pro gram out of the way. After the elec tion of officers the assembled guests sat down to one of the most elaborate banquets that ever regaled the inhab itants of Elkdom. The election of officers resulted as follows: Exalted Ruler—C. E. Lazier. Esteemed Leading Knight—James A. Dinnie. Esteemed Royal Knight—Dr. J. D. Taylor. Esteemed Lecturing Knight—Dr. F. M. Wells.

The officers will be installed at the next meeting. THE SHOW PLOW DITCHED Great Northern Crew Narrowly Hiss Being Made Subjects for the Undertaker. McVille, N. D., March 18.—Superin tendent McKinnon and a crew in charge of the snow plow on the Great Northern, narrowly escaped death while working on clearing the exten sion near here of snow. A big Russell plow with two engines and a relief train was sent out from Aneta to clear the track and when the outfit struck the big bridge east of this place, the plow jumped the track and crossed the bridge at a rate of twenty five miles an hour. Upon reaching the other side it struck a snow drift and was thrown over the embankment. The two engines that followed, took the same course and they doubled up on the plow. After considerable de lay the engines and plow were placed on the track. Superintendent McKinnon and the train crews jumped from the plow and engines, saving their lives.
