The Directors of the Building Association Wrestle with the Choosing of a President. Cheering Notes Through Mellow Horns by Our Boys with Music in Their Souls. Crime which Brags Angels down Contrast ed with a Scene that Raises Mor tals to the Skies. Charged witn Rape and Incest. Yesterday morning "William Bowman was brought before Justice Allen on cliargc of having, on or about May 1st, by means of beating and threats of tak ing her life, committed an outrage upon the person of his daughter, aged 13 years, the complaint upon which the warrant for his arrest was issued having been made and filed by John Clayton, Saturday the 1st inst. District Attorney W. £. Dodge appeared for the prosecution and Johnson Nickeus for the defense. The prisoner waived examination and gave bond in the sum of $500 for his appear ance at the next term of the district court, with Messrs. P. A. Campbell and Anton Steinbacli as sureties. There are now in circulation, disconnected with this particular case, but attaching to the de fendant, many disgusting stories of beastly conduct that cannot be even in dicated by language within the range of decency, and the Alert will not attempt to go beyond the record. The facta are aa yet only partially developed, and as the matter is now in the bands of the court, it is not the province of any newspaper to forestall the result of the case by giving reports that may not be sustained by the evidence at the trial. Xiet Us Celebrate. From the Daily. Tuesday. The speakers' stand and the tables for the celebration at Woodland park to-day were all about completed yesterday even ing and everything is in readiness for the occasion, and it is to be desired and hop ed that everything will pass off pleasant ly, and that the day will be observed in a becoming manner. While it is a day for general rejoicing and exulta tion, and feasting upon the fat of the land it is not a day for rowdyism and dissipation as many seem to regard it. A Fourth of July celebration is a place, or ought to be, where men can take their wives and children and enjoy unmolested and freely the day as a so cial gathering. It is not expected nor desired that the people would be as quiet as at at a funeral or as circum scribed in their actions as if in the fam ily circle, but no one who has any of the self-respect of a gentleman will so demean himself as to mar the happiness of the chiluren in their amusement or the ladies in their social pleasures by boister ous conduct or unbecoming language. There are very few so lost to self respect or regard for others as to do such things, but that few nearly always come around on the Fourth of July. Building Association Directors The directors of the Building Associa tion, or,at-!cast eight of them, Messers. —YT^ilace, Wells, Russell, Dudley, Bush Keeves, Bill, and Curtin met last evening at the village council rooms. Messers Lloyd and Carr were absent and Mr. Van Dusen having sold his stock could not act. An attempt was made to elect in his place but.without avail, four votes standing for J. 11. Winslow and four for J. J. Flint" A recess of ten minutes was taken to con sult and after the meeting was called to order an attempt was made to compro mise. Mr. White as an outsider, said that he had prepared a petition to Judge Hudson to have the election set aside un less a compromise was made. Remarks were made concerning fraudulent votes and while one faction wanted to compro mise, the other side wanted action delay ed for a month. Mr. Wallace and Mr. Dudley at last shook hands and agreed to say no more during the evening and left the meeting leaving the remaining six di rectors to settle the point which^they. did by electing B. 8. Russell, president D. Curtin, vice president K. £. Wallace, treasurer It. A. Bill, attorney li. 8. Reeves, secretary and J. J. Flint adirect or to fill the place of Mr. Van Dusen. New Brlok Machines. Mr. Anton Klaus, one of our solid busi ness men and a public betiefactor who uses his wealth to advance the interests of the town and country, has made ar rangements to bring three more brick ma chines here next week and put them in opeiation at his already extensive brick yard east of town. They will be brought from Mandan, and Mr. P. W. Granbcrry of that place, an experienced and rustling brick-maker, will operate them. This will necessitate the employment of from fifteen to twenty more men at the brick yard by the ^middle of next week. The demand for brick building material is so great that Mr. Klaus has been trying to -T,T get some one else to engage in the busi ness, but failing in this he lias put his broad shoulders to the wheel and will sup &. ply the demand himself if lie has to grind up Stutsman county and make a brick kiln of it, and you bet he will make „v- it go if money and solid work will accom 5 plish it. It is just such enterprising men as Mr. Klaus that makes Dakota the boomer of all booming territories. _____ fthe New Postoffloe Arrangement. Our postoffice came out in a new suit gtrtHfry morning 99 beautifuj ang sv§. r^."• :Vf" 3 4U^^,- frNffifr ft 1 tematic that it looked like it might oe a branch oliice of the treasury department instead of that of the postoffice depart ment. There will now be no more of those interminable and impenetrable blockades that have been such annoyance for some time past, when those who had lock-boxes stood a worse show for getting their mail than if they had had no boxes at all. The delay caused by persons inquiring for their own mail and everybody's else, and if falling to get anything entering into a long argument with the postmaster to convince him that it must be there, or in terviewing him as to when it would come, will now be confined to those who have no boxes. Jamestown now has a postoffice arrangement which for orna ment and convenience is not excelled by any postoffice on tlie line of the Northern Pacific and now since we have a Sunday train each way why not have the still fur ther advantage of a mail on those Sunday trains? The Fargo Schoolhouso. The Furgoaus are again in trouble over their new school house foundation. Some weeks ago they stopped work, discharged the superintendent of construction and employed a new one. Upon the report of the examination by the new expert, the work was ordered "onward and upward", but now comes the second announcement of the stoppage of the work on account of defective foundation. The contemplated structure was to have been a fine and costly edifice and the misfortune of the bad foundation will be regretted by all, whether directly interested or not. The Alert is far from rejoicing in any misfor tune that may befall the enterprises of Fargo, notwithstanding it may have a lit tle jamboree with the papers there occa sionally. It is to be hoped that the defect may yet be remedied and our booming neighbor on the lied rejoice in its fine school house. An Affecting Little Scene. A few days ago three little bootblacks came here from Minneapolis bringing with them a bird, a beautiful singer, to which they were very much attached. From some unknown cause the bird sud denly sickened and died. The sorrow stricken little fellows did not throw "it carelessly aside, but gave it as nearly a christian burial as tliey knew how. They carried their dead songster to a secluded spot and in solemn silence dug a grave. One of them then tenderly wrapped the dead bird in a cloth and carefully laid it in the grave. One then stood by the grave and sang a hymn, after which an other knelt down and offered prayer. These exercises over, the three covered it up, raising a little mound, when with tongues silent from sadness of heart they turned and walked away. The affecting little scene was witnessed by a minister of this place, unobserved by the little stranger bootblacks, who were themselves trangers in a strange land. It's Shameful. The Jamestown correspondent of the Grand Rapids Journal in a communica tion to that paper among other items re flects upon the Ladies' Aid Societies of this place in the following libelous man ner: Elmer's theater is prospering and now that the Ladies' Aid Societies have ceased to oppose it, and gone back to attend ing to their neighbor's business, it attracts no extraordinary attention but is well patronized. The city of Helena, Montana, is filling up with suspicious characters, tramps, vagrants, and midnight marauders, to such an exteut that it becomes necessary on the part of the vigilantes to issue their cabalistic figures "3-7-77." The evil doers know what these numbers mean. The vigilantes of Helena arc not to be fooled with. They mean what they say. Their past record has given them great prestige in that section and they are backed by the general sentiment of that community. The Independent of the 14th says that incendiaries have been at work in Helena, and under the circum stances, while it believes in upholding the supremacy of the law, it recognizes the fact that emergencies may arise re quiring a resort to extreme measures. Self-preservation is natures's first law, and against the incendiary and midnight marauder no measures can be taken as too violent which arc necessary to public safety. This is a good healthy sentiment, and it should exist in a reasonably degree in every town on the frontier. Now that Guiteau has been planted, the irrepressible Dr. "bulletin" Bliss comes to the surface again in his own vindica tion, as he calls it. It was hoped that by breaking Guiteau's neck the nation and the world would have a rest from all the disgusting features of the lamented taking off of President Garfield, but a bill was introduced into the senate the other day that touched "bulletin" Bliss off and now the country is threatened with a deluge of vindications from that windy medi cine man. We do not wish a misfortune or calamity to befall any man, but if the lightning, that so often extinguishes the lamp of life would take a Blissward course and thereby save someone else we believe the American people could soon become reconciled to the dispensation of provi dence.

The Veteran Organization—Grand Bapids Celebration—News and Notes Gleaned by Alerters. The Celebrated Fourth. Not a day or hardly an hour passes but what Jamestown is making history, and as the few days aggregate into months, and the months into years, these foot prints the sands of time will become more and more interesting as historical events. Little things even become matters of interest as they recede into the past, and details of the more important events add very greatly to their interest. As the faithful chronicler of the events that will one day be compiled into a history of Jamestown, the Alert will endeavor to rescue from oblivion and place upon per petual record every event of any import ance among the most interesting of which, to the future generation, will be the man ner in which, in pioneer days, we cele brated the glorious Fourth. THE GATILKLTLKG OF THE HOSTS. The day was a beautiful and pleasant one in every respect, and early in the morning the people for many miles in all directions assembled in town with their families to duly observe the day as be comes American citizens who love their government and revere its immortal founders. The procession formed at the corner of Main street and Fifth avenue, and, headed by the band, marched through the various streets of the town and then to Woodland Park where every tliingwas in readiness for the occasion. THE GKOUKDS. The grounds had been nicely cleaned off and prepared by the occasion by the construction of a good speaker's stand and seats for the audience in a good shade near the bank of the river, together with suitable tables for the general and public as well as the private and society stands. EXERCISES AT TIIE GKOUKDS. Mr. B. S. Russell, president of the day announced the program at the stand, which consisted oi'prayer by lie v. N. Fanning, reading of the Declaration of independence by Johnson Nickeus, ora tion by Rev. J. R. Hartman and bene diction by ltev. W. L. Demorest, inter spersed with good music by tbe Glee Club, all of which were well-timed and appropriate, and of which the oration by liev. Hartman deserves mqre than pas sing notice, which as a literary produc tion, an oratorical effort, and a masterly presentation of the subject of the day, the writer has in his opinion rarely heard equalled on like inspiring occa sions. The speaker carried his audience so completely with him in his eloquent ly expressed and beautifully couched thoughts, arguments and sentiments that scarcely a change of position was observ ed throughout the entire audience during tne delivery of the address, which occu pied about an hour. His dramatic ren dition of the interview between an aged and decrepit old soldier of 1812 and the hero of Lundy's Lane, Gen. Scott, at the oeginmng of the rebellion, as given in thrilling verse by B. F. Taylor, was the climax of the oration. THE AMUSEMENTS. Owing to some cause the proposed free dinner was a failure, probably on ac count of the short time in which no tice was given for preparation, and the war dance had no existence except on the program on accouut of the government agent at Fort Totten refusing to allow the Indians to be taken out on such an expe dition, in which no one can reasonably blame him, but rather commend his good judgment, for had any trouble come of it, he would have been held responsible for it by the government The climbing of the greased pole on tl grounds and the tub race in the river afforded consider able excitement and amusement, while the horse race out east of town in the af ternoon and the fireworks in the evening concluded the sports of the day. Everything passed off in a very pleas ant, orderly and agreeable manner, with out any boisterous drunkenness, fighting or quarrelling. Everybody appeared to be in good humor and all enjoying themselves. The names of veteran sol diers who took part in the occasion in a body appear in another article specially devoted to that organization. THE DANCE. After the display of fireworks, Klaus the band boys were to give a concert and dance was the point of at- Hall, where traction for many. About fifty couples attended and the best of order was main tained throughout. In fact it was one of the best dances ever given in the hall. The Fourth at Qrand Bapids. La Moure county was not behind in her exhibition of patriotism on the anniver sary of out national independence. Pow der was burned early in the day and Roman candles revealed the revels of the gay and beautiful at the tripping of the "light fantastic" until far into the night. At 10:30 a. m. the procession formed in front of the La Moure House and marchcd to the beautiful grove on the other side of the river. Here safe from mosquitoes and other annoyances the citizens celebra ted the occasion in a becoming manuer "with joy and festivity with bonfires and illuminations." The programme con sisted of: Prayer by liev. Barry of New York city music by the glee club some jemarks suitable to the occasion by liev. rMr. Barry, followed by the oration by W. E. Dodge, Esq., of Jamestown, on the "History of American Patriotism," which was well received and frequently applaud ed. After ttiese exercises lunch baskets were brought forth and a general good time, as our people wel! know how to en joy, was participated in by nearly all present during the whole day. The peo ple seemed to be impressed with the speaker, that "three hundred and sixty four days of a year of unparalleled pros perity having been devoted to rejoicing over the things of the present it is fitting that on this one day of the year we should lav aside present cares and devote our selves to the past, which was purchased for us—that inheritance which we so lav ishly eojoy," Qur celebration was a auc- JAMESTOWN. STUTSMAN COUNTY, D. T., FRIDAY,? JULY 7,1882"- Stutsman County Courthouse. The above cut represents the new court house that is now being built in James town, or rather what it will be when completed. Isn't it a daisy? Are you not glad you are a citizcn of Stutsman county Why, it would be a pleasure to go to the penitentiary from a trial held in that court house, and if it were not for the fact that it 4 W Field will be free to eyery- body, it would be a great incentive to crime just to obtain the distinction of having a trial in such a fine looking court house. The people will expend $30,000 on that building and more if necessary. They are building for the generation to come, though before that time we expect to have the capitol build ing and supreme court long before the venerable gray shall streak the locks of our young men. But we are too busy now with our court house to build a state house. Located on the highest point in town it will show off superbly to the pas sengers who come in on the Northen Pacific on its magnificent trains on the curve along the east side of town. Born.

Some thought he was celebrating in advance of the Fourth, but the advent into the family of an eight pound boy is enough to make anyone hap py. The Alert offers congratulations. Organization 01 tne Veterans. The veterans of Jamestown and vicinity organized the Veterans' Association of Stutsman county on Tuesday, July 4th.

The bill before the United Slates sen ate to set off all that part of Dakota ter ritory north of the 46th parallel, and or ganize it as a new territory in the name of Pembina, while not in the least ob jectionable as far as the division and form of territorial government is concerned, will meet with a united "kick" as regards the name. To our citizens there is a charm about every letter and music in ev ery syllable of the name Dakota. The spelling of the name has been changed bv substituting for and dropping the si lent the sound still remains the same, and the change the orthography was adopted bv mutual consent, but there will be no mutual consent or any other kind of consent to such a radical and ar bitrary change of name as to that of Pembina. After having worked a glory and renswn for Dakota such as no other territory on the continent ever at tained, wc do not propose row to have those laurels snatched from us and given to the southern part of Dakota, which has done so little to make the name glo rious—m short wo will not submit to be ing snuffed out name, set back to tbe foot of the ladder of fame, and made to commence anew again.

The Telephone Exchange Organization Eleot Officers, and Will at Once Proceed to Succeed. Sales of Town Lots and No. 1 Hard —The Daily Grist of News of Local Interest. Let Harmony Prevail. The Alert has observed cropping out lit tle by little aud in different ways, a spirit of rivalry aud contention in the business cir cles of Jamestown, which, though harm less as yet, is liable to grow impercepti bly almost, until it becomes a formidable element of discord and a serious damage to the business interests of the town. So far only the seeds of this dissension have fallen in this place and tliey may be smothered out very easily if done in time and in a proper spirit. Our business men are financially strong and have plenty of "sand" to successfully combat any out side influence that may be brought to bear against this town or county, but this for midable source of united strength, if trans formed into internal dissension and con flicts would become a disastrous source of weakness. The historic saying "When Greek meets Greek then comes the tug of war" may be brought down to our time and place and paraphrased, When James-J town boomers tlieet Jamestown boomers then comes the tug of war, and it is to warn our citizens against such a disas trous conflict and suicidal contest that this article is written. History is ever re peating itself and like causes produce like effects with terrible certainty. We have an illustration of this in opposite di rections and effects in the cities of Fargo aud Bismarck. In Bismarck, with ad vantages of rtver navigation and sur rounding country that ought to have car ried with them a perpetual boom have been counteracted by the apathy and dis sensions among those who held the keys to the situation and as a consequence the town has been on the standstill for some time. On the other hand, Fargo, with many natural advantages, it is true, but also "with numerous disadvantages of wa er overflow, has progressed and is mov ing on with a rapidity and enterprise that is the marvel of the Northwest as the result of united and harmonious feel ing and effort among her business men. The Fargoaus are not any more amiable by nature nor unselfish in their disposi tions than are the men of Bismarck, but they are wiser. They have buried all per sonal feeling and petty contests and are as a unit upon all questions of material consequence to the business interests of the city, and that is where their business wisdom lies and is exemplified, and be hold the reward in their unbounded pros perity, and profit by their example. The past record of the business men of James town has been one of unity and harm ny and the hope and desire of the Alert is that it may continue so. Real Estate.

DOOLITTLE States Prison Troubles* Concord, Mass., July 5.—It seems that for severla years past convicts have hailed the beginning of the 4th of July with more or less noise. The racket this year began at midnight Monday and lasted for four hours. For this the men were not allowed to go into the yard as usual on holidays. As noon of the 4th drew near and the men saw that they were not to go into the yard the}' recommenced their demonstra tion and from that time until this mora ing the prison was a perfect pandemo nium with noise, and the warden decided to-day that the men ought not to enter the shops for one day at least. They were fed, ana as a rule were quiet. Now and then some one would raise a cry or pound vigorously, but hot one would join him. all they wanted this year was an excuse for making a noise, and would join in the songs and in tbe cheering of the presi dent or late warden, or passing tune with great spirit. There was but one threat ening missive written upon the matter while many notes from better dis posed men deprecating the demonstra tion have been sent to the warden. .Thus far only a dozen or so demonstrators have been sent to cells. Washington Briefs. Washington, July 5.—The following confirmations in the Alabama claims com mission were made to-day: H. J. Wells of Michigan, presiding judge J. Harlan of Iowa and 1. French of Massachusetts, judges Daniel Fessendenof Maine, clerk L. G. Wilcox receiver of public moneys at Detroit. The senate ratified the commercial and consular treaty with Servia, the commer cial treaty with Itoumania, and the trade mark treaty with Spain. During the past fiscal year 46,663 agri cultural patents were issued. The total amounts of the river and har bor bill appropriation, which passedthe house to-day, foots up $19,400,000. In the senate the Pembina bill was dis cussed. Hale and Vest opposed it and it went over. It will probably be taken up again to morrow. The naval appropriation bill was dis cussed in the house to-day, but no action was taken. Drs. Somers and Hartigan, associated with Dr. Lamb in the autopsy, denounce Lamb's singular action in sending out for publication a report signed only by him self. •11 for Love. Seymour, lnd., July 6.—About 3o'clock this afternoon Miss Gabiiella, the beauti ful and accomplished daughter of B. Wray, who lives about five miles north west of Medora, this county, procured a large revolver and deliberately shot her self in the left breast, inflicting a terrible wound that will certainly prove fatal. Unrequited love is assigned as the cause for the rash act. Piunlc Accident. Bay City, Mich., July 5.—Yesterday af ternoon Willie, aged 18, son of Alderman Daniel Campbell, and Mary Rose, daugh ter of John liose, ship carpenter, both of this city, were drowned in the river a short distance from this city.
