Cleveland of LaMoure county and editor of the Grand Rapids Journal, was elected secretary. Col. Lounsberry then moved that the •hair be instructed to appoint a commit tee of five on credentials.

The committee on credentials not being ready to report at the time appointed for the reassembling of the convention, the convention was again adjourned to meet at seven o'clock. At seven o'clock precisely, Chairman Wallace called the convention to order and stated that the committee on creden tials was ready to repot t.

John A. McLean moved that the report of the committee on credentials be adopted. J. A. Stoyell moved an amendment to to the motion to lay the report on the ta ble, which was lost. At this poiut the good Dr. Campbell from Barnes county, contestant, rose to a point of order and asked that he might be jiven ten minutes in which to plead the Jest cause of his rejected delegation. The nqmst was granted and the doctor gave way to an outburst of abuse on the Ben son and Kindred factions. •lodge Edgerly from Morton, who, like the doctor trom Barnes, had got on the wrong delegation and was not happy) naked that the convention would allow )dm t° say a word.

The Fourteen Legislative Convention, called to meetat Klaus Hall, in this city, yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock, was call ed to order by K. A. Bill, who acted a* chairman of the legislative committee. After reading the call, Mr. Bill called R. K. Wallace of Stutsman county to the chair. and the fractious judge sailed in, s« failed to make a point, was call- W the chair. ed to order ». 0 John A. btoj rose to a point of o». Burleigh, then with the mmmgL an ele consent of the convention, «»cted del gant appeal in behalf of the rej. egation from Morton county. The aggrieved delegations having beet, given an opportunity to discuss their side of the question at issue to their entire sat ISfaction, the motion on the adoption of the report was put and carried by a unani mous vote. It was then moved by Geo. P. Flannery of Burleigh that the convention proceed to a permanent organization and that the W mi officers elected by the temporary or ganization be retained and serve as offi cers of the permanent organization, ned. Car- On motion of Col. C. A. Lounsbciry, of Burleigh county, Johnson Nickeus of Stutsman, was nominated to represent the fonrteenth legislative district in the •council. was then moved that the convention proceed to nominate two candidates for the assembly. The following candidates were brought out on the nrs ballot. Delegate. Vote*. B. W. Benson I. A. William* lane VM Deaecn W. 8. F. i. Mm* Of. Atoau of Barnes county and E. A.

It being suggested that the candidates elected be sent for, a committee was appointed to wait upon the gentlemen, who, upon entering the hall were loudly applauded. The two favorites stepped forward and each in his turn thanked the convention and closed with a few happy and appropriate remarks. The convention then adjourned. The Central Commit ee The members of central committee met during recess of the convention, and elected J. F. Wallace, of Burleigh, chair man, and Isaac Van Ueusen, of Kidder, secretary, with Jamestown as place of meeting. Ellsworth moved that a committee for the fourteenth legislative district elect a committee consisting of one man for each delegation. Stutsman BS ltussell. Barnes F. A Remington Burleigh J.F.Wallace. Griggs Byron Andrus. Kidder Isaac Van Deuscn. Morton T, R. Pelmes. LaMoure C. S. Cleveland, Ransom Col. J. P. Knight. Dickey W. AWan. It is bel eved that the convention is en tirely satisfied with the result, and it is really hoped that there will never be heard in this fourteenth legislative dis trict one desenting voice. Business is business, gentlemen, and if you have iot been fortunate to win the contest, don't make yourselves ridiculous by kick ing. Pull off your coats and work lor the men who, if not your own individual choice, were certainly the choice of the convention to which you had the honor of being delegates. Stutsman County's Candidate. At the county conveniion last Sat urday evening Mr. Nickeus was with Bat tering unanimity designated as the choice of the republican party of th.s county for that position, in view of which fact the Alert deems it proper to give a few of the points in his history that indicate the education, both commercial and political, he has had, that would be of great value and advantage to him in the lialls of leg islation. He was brought up and educated in the public schools of vVashington City, and is a scholar of many superior accom plishments. As clerk in a store he ac quired a good commercial education.From this he entered upon a clerKsliip in tiie United States Senate, in which situation he acquired a thorough knowledge of the various tactics used in securing desired legislation, and of parliamentary practice as exemplified in the greatest aud grand est legislative body in the world. In 1880 Mr. Nickeus came to Jamestown and engaged in the practice of law, having taken a course of study in Washington City. At the election in 1881 he was elected clerk of the district court, which position he has tilled with credit and honor both to himself and the people who elected him and who have evidenced their respect lor him as a man and a citizen, and confidence in bis integ rity and ability as an officer, by the unan imity with which tliey selected him as a candidate to present before the conven tion to-day for representative in the ter torial legislature. Mr. Nickeus is a fluent speaker, an able lawyer, aud possesses thoses rare social qualities which would at once give him prominence and iutiu ence as a member of a legislative body. The District Attorney. The question as to who will be our next district attorney is one which is now oc cupying the attention of the press of this district and as the Alert understands ilia, as yet no one in particular has been de cided upon for that eminent position, ii might not seem improper lor it to ineu tion the name of our able attorney, Air. W. E. Dodge, as being a possible candi date for that office. Mr. DoUne's legal experience has been of such a nature du ring the years he has practiced in this county and territory, mat no oue who lias tlie liouor ot his acquaintance will for a inoineui question his utni-sa, and we verj much doubt it' tliere is auoiUer attorney in the wnole territory who has enjoyed a more successlui law praciice tnan lia Air. Dodge, ill* personal integrity anu moral worth stanas high above reproach, and should he lie made the choicu ol tlit voters ol this judicial district he woulu in the discharge ot his othcial duties re flect honor to Himself and credit to hi* constituency. Mr. Dodge was born in Lowell, Vermont, in lb57, and studied law with F. W. Baldwin, secretary of the state senate, and Congressman Wm. H, Grante, both promineui uien of that state. He was admitted to the bftrinlb7i), under Judge ltedford, who it will be remember ed was one of the most distinguished judges old Vermont ever possessed. The Harvest Home Festival. The Harvest Home Festival given by the ladies of the £1, JJ. church last even ing was one of the most pleasant and en joyable of the kind ever had in James town. The church was crowded to its full capacity and everything passed off in most pleas#ut and social manner pos- i.. 8,ble- ,, ^fV A splendid supper was spread at the viands for which Mes, different ia(jjea in town were contnbuieu and the country immev in which they did the band handsome, as those who partook o« the splendid repast did it justicc. The committee of ladies to wait on the tables was composed of the following: rTsi surround •ubject in Miss Delplain, Mrs. John Vennum, Mrs. Klla Oppay, Miss Alaggie i-lhot, Mrs. John King, Mrs. M. Ducker and Mrs. M. McClure. The committee at the fruit stand WM composed of the following ladies: Miss Knapp, Miss Mary Elliott and the Misses Berlmalhal. The singing, which was no insignificant item the entertainment, was conducted bv Mr. Leteneau, Miss Knapo, Miss Del niain and the Misses Berlmatnal. At the close Mr. I. C. W adc sold at auction several fine cakes that were left over from the feast, at the usual James town booming prices. The gross receipts of the evening were A73- net $67. The audience dispersed about half-past ten o'clock, all agreeing tbey had enjoyed the most pleasant CTt&iBg wtertaiwMat tin r, '^v At seven o'clock p. m., the appointed time for the ceremony to take place, the church was well tilled with the fnends of the contracting parties, and at a few min utes past seven the bridal party was con ducted into the church by the ushers, Messrs. W. H. Burke, E. J. Blossom, J. S. Watson and W. C. White, Miss Lizzie Wells playing the wedding mach. The bride was dressed in a white wool merino dress with satin trimmings, and the groom in a suit of black, both displaying excellent taste in the absence of super fluous display and ostentation. Imme diately after the ceremony the bridal paity returned to the residence of Maj. Lyon where tliey were joined by a few of their most intimate acquaintances in an evening of pleasant social enjoyment.

Fry & Insley of this city made up an exhibit of James River Valley products to take to the fair at Crawfordsville, Ind. A paper now comes from that city with an extend ed notice of i.he Dakota exhibit, which will do a great deal in the way of adver tising our valley in that vicinity. That part of Indiana has already furnished a number of good citizens for Stutsman •-.ounty who will be followed next year by many more of the same sort. The pro ductions of this country area matter of M'onderineut to the people back in the states, and it is not to be wonuered at that .-uch is tlie case, for Dakota has been re garded as in the Great American Desert, and by mauy intelligent people looked upon as uninhabited aud uninbabitable, except by the wild buila'o and savage In dians. 1 he exhibits that have been sent out ibis year have fully corroborated the most exiravagaut statements made by the newspapers, which statements have not ueeu believed in one-half they publUheu .eiative l- tue country until their declara tions were conhemed by tue actual pro ducts of the country. Baron County Fair. The Valley City Times says: "The sec retary and directors of the Barnes County Jfc air association are Working conscien tiously to make the fair a lasting success, aud are securing all the attractions pos sible. As announced on the fair posters issued, Col. P. Donan, of Fargo, has been engagad to deliver an address, and good racing, and other features will constitute me programme. The good work thus lar, however, has been confined to the exertions of a few. This may avail in the preliminary arrangements, but now the time has come for every business man in Valley City and the farmers through out the county generally to do everything in their power to make the movement for a home representation a popular one, for popularity means a full attendance and complete succcM. The Jamestown Alert says that what that town wants is "a few good trees or telegraph poles, from which to suspend some specimens of its devils for public in spection. A few hanging bees under ihe supervision of Judge Lynch would propaoly tone the place down so that its women would be comparatively safe. It would not be a bad thing to try at any rate."—Bismarck Tribune. The above was copied in the Alert frou. the Moorhead items in the Fargo Repub lican, was followed by some comments, but in making up tfaus forms the foreman inadvertently separated them, which left the item to appear as original and applying to this plgce. The foreman was taken out and slipt early the neft jnyrning, and the night editor escaped with his lifie by tgking the first train for the states. We hope this will be sufficient to place the state ol affair* 4isc?il*4 in the it«n ia XoorM, wlMO it tNloaga. n&^ •tfnww sassj*^ 1 VOL 5. JAMESTOWN, STUTSMAN COUNTY, D. T., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1882. XABBXAOE BKLUS. Married at the Presbyterian church, on Wedn«sdav evening, Sept. 20, in this city, by Rev. N. Fanning, Mr. Thomas S. Wadswortb, of Billings, Mon tana, and Miss Minnie Lyon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. Lyon, of Jamestown. ADDITIONAL CITY NOTZS. A large number of railroad men are here as witnesses in theFrank Ziegan case vs. the N. P. The sale of foreign tickets at this sta tion is increasing daily, and Jamestown is becoming one of the largest ticket sta tions on the line. John McLean, of Bismarck, expresses himself as being highly pleased with the nomination, and is thinking of becoming a Jamestown "boomer." Special telegrams were sent from Jamestown to all the daily papers in the Northwest giving the details of the con vention here on the 30th. Gen. Anderson, chief engineer of the Northern Pacific railroad,is expected here to-day and will go up to the end of the track on he Northern Branch. Work in the railroad yard has nearly suspended the past two days in conse quence «f scarcity of help. The yard master is unable to procure assistance. The several delegates have returned to their constituency. Some to tell how it ought to have been, and some to tell what a glorious thing it is to be on the right side. Judge Hudson commended the grand jury for its good behavior and good sense, and discharged them. This is cer tain! v«rr flattering for Stutsman county citiztus. The Daily Alert will be sent free of charge to all the farmers in Stutsman county from the 24th of this month until after election. Advertisers will bear this fact in mind. The cattle that were in the Crystal Springs wreck escaped from the cars, ne cessitating the employment of three men to herd them. The job is certainly an un« pleasant one. Captain B. B. Gurley will take his de parture soon for Washington territory, where he contemplates locating perma nently. The Captain has been a resident of the Northwest for many years. The N. P. will soon put a large force of carpenters at work erecting section houses, depots, etc., on the J. «fc N. W. branch. The new depots are to have bay wiudows, and will be of tlie most tasty and convenient style. A stock train bound east was ditched just east of Chrystal Spnngs yesterday after noon, and two cars of stock thrown from the track. The cars were badly damaged but the cattlc fortunately escaped with slight injury. The cattle belonged to Col. J. H. Pratt, the owner of one of the largest ranches in 3Iontana. J. J. G'ooney, who robbed Hanks and Morris at the Northwestern House, Satur day night, of $25 each, was indicted hr the special grand jury. The trial of the culprit will probably occur to-day. Twenty-four dollars of the stolen wealth was recovered. Owing to the pressue on the advertising columns of the Daily Alert its enlarge ment to an eight column paper is now contemplated in the near future. The in crease of its circulation to nearly every household in the county makes it the most valuable advertising medium west of Fargo. The work on the three story brick building of the First National bank is progressing very satisfactorily. The wall for the second story on the south side is nearly finished and the work is be ing pushed forward as rapidlv as possible. The building when completed will be one of the finest in the city, and will be an ornament to the place. Late yesterday evening Justice Wat son issued a warrant for the arrest of a man named James W. Sickles who lives up in the vicinity of Newport, and is charged by the affidavit of one his neighbors with malicious mischief in maiming stock by shooting. If found by the officer, as he very likely will be, he will be brought in to-day for an examination. The North Dakota Capital, the new evening daily, made its debut before the public yesterday evening. It is a hand so.ne six column folio, well written, neat ly printed, and taken all in all is a daily of which Mr. Burke, the editor and pro prietor may well feel proud. The Alert wishes the enterprise success and takes ple«Auru in introducing it tp tho favorable consideration ot the people of Jamestown and Stutsman county. The following additional arrivals came in at the Dakota bouse last night J, A. Scott, St. Paul C. W. Dickson, Canandbi gua, N. Y. C. T. Ingersoll and wife and three children, John B. llaladay, 3. S. Quilkin, Miss A. A. Goodrich, Grand Kap id« L. Trinkhams, Madison, Wis. T. M. McN imara, St Paul Joseph Shier, £. C. Scott, Fargo John B. Fellows, Winona, Minn. V. A. Hapchett, Hastings, Mich. The frame worn for the Villard park is nearly completed, and is a handsome piece of workmanship. The park com mittee should use* some remedy for straightening the crooked telegraph pole in the park, or have it rcmcrved. It would be only proper that the telegraph com pany erect a good pole there apd paintiit, so as to compare favorably with tlie fin ishing touches oh ihe fence and stand. Have it looking nice while at it. The Alert understands that B. M. Hicks, yet green from the states, has, since the Alert announced that Mr. John Neirling would be a candidate for the office of county treasurer, announced himself as a competitor for that position. Mr. Hicks, no doubt, possesses many ad mirable qualities, but it seems to the Alert, as it does to many others, who are personally friendly to H., that he had better wait until he bad proved his citi zenship before lie asks the suffrages of this people, as against a man who has an education and has been a respdent of the county since its organization. In the trial of the case of the Territory vs. John Severn, on charge of malicious mischief, the jury failed to agree. Eleven of the jury, convinced by J. S. Watson, defendant's counsel, that he was not guil ty one then settled down like the rock of ages Into tne theory ot Attorneys Jfick eus and Allen, that he Was guilty. Af ter laboring with the twelfth juror for some time, the other eleven concluded that Ephraim was joined to his idols, and with oh» accord they went Into the pres nd bpfi on* ence of the court ana gave it tbsir be lief that ihey could not agree before the Day of Judgment, whereupn the judge discharged them, not caring to prolong the pnmttomrt court until tfeittin* $*«%*%$$ GOOD NEWS. Spleadid Report br the Northern Pad Be Railroad. Showing the Aaoant of Bnslaess DOM Last I car. Accident «tho Southwestern R—'The Engineer Scalded to Death. By Wcitern AHMUM PrM«. northern Vaolfle Ballroad Btateasont NEW YOBK, Sept. 21.—At the annual meeting of the stockholders of the North ern Pacific railroad to-d%y the report of President Villard was read. It shows that the gross earnings for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1882, were $5,430,305. Operating expenses, including rent and taxes, $3,572,840 net earnings, $1,857,465. The ratio of expenses to earnings, $85 to $69. Increase in net earnings over pre vious year, $888,336. Average number of miles operated 797 increase in net earn ings per mile, $884. Number of passen gers arriving and leaving at the western termini, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Duluih and Superior, 106,886, an increase of 71, 644. The passenger earnings of the east ern division show a gain of 92 per cent, and the freight movement shows an equal percentage of increase during the year. The ends of the track were advanced from the east 183 miles, and from the west 102 miles total, 285 miles, leaving on June 30, 1882, 572 miles to be built. This will be lessened by the close of 1882, prob ably 300 miles, leaving 272 miles of track to be laid after January 1, 1883. The final connection of the tracks is expected to be made during 1883. In addition to the work done on the main line, 272 miles of track has been laid on branches in Minnesota, Dakota and Washington Territory. The great bridge across the Missouri river, at Bismarck, will be completed early in October. The financial statement shows cash on hand at the beginning of the fiscal year $11,567,944 receipts from the sale of bonds and preferred stock, $4,682,086 expendi tures for construction $21,577,995. The management point to the fact that it has finished 275 miles of road, graaed 100 miles additional, bought and paid for sufficient rails for the entire gap between the two ends of the main lines, and made, besides, current disbursements for mo tive power, rolling stock, Bismarck bridge, Bozeman and Helena tunnels, and other heavier portions of work, with out delivering a single bond to the syndi cate since December. The land department has sold 465,201 acres during the year for $1,709,338. The average price being $3.60 per acre. In regard to Northern Pacific land grant report, it is argued that the action of the house of representatives at the last session of congress in laying on the table both majority and minority reports of the judiciary committee, and in refusing to place on the calendar a resolution that a portion of the grants are forfeited, dis posed of the whole matter and as favor ably to the company as if $n adverse reso lution had been received, considered and rejected by the house. It was in effect a decision of the house of representatives that it will take no bteps to declare the forfeiture of the lands of the company. Furthermore, congress at its last session gave express legislative recognizance of the company's unimpaired chartered rights that they did by the passing of an act, approved July 10, 1882, accepting and ratifying the treaty made with the Crow Indians lor the right of way through their reservation for the use of this eompany for the construction pf the The following named were re-elec ted directors: A.

SomteMe la the Black HlUs. Spcclai to Pioneer PKM. Pat German was shot and almost in stantly killed by Frank H. Davey, owner of the Sitting Bull silver mine and smel ter, at Galena, at 7 o'clock Sunday even ing. A bitter feeling has been cherished by many miners of the district against the Davevs for along time, growing out of a belief that they were endeavoring to dry the district, or backcap it, as it ia termed, so that he could receive coveted property, and hard words and no little newspaper controversy has frequently occurred. Young Davey visited Deadwood Sunday morning, returning to Galena at noon. He was met at the postoffice by German, when harsh words ensued, terminating in German knocking Davey, a mere boy in physique, prostrate twice, when Davey sprang to his feet and drawing a pistol fired, inflicting a wound from which Ger man died in half a minute. German owned a conflicting interest in a claim ad joining the Sitting Bull. Davey surren dered to a deputy sheriff. Col. Davey is at present in New York, and Frank, al though only twenty-two years old, is in charge ef affairs. The family is one of the most respectable and favorably known in the Hills.
