a bay steer over the re-apportionment of
the legislative districts by which La
Moure county is attached to Cass and
other Red river counties. It claims La

respect and that it was an act of gross in­
justice to make it the tail end of a Red
river district.
There were 545,887 members of the

The following item has been going the
rounds of the press for some time: "A
printer's towel fell out of the third story
window in a New Jersey town
the other day and cracked a pavement
stone. The crash was heard two blocks
away, and a little boy ran home, with
white lips and trembling limbs, to tell
A is mother that lie had seen "a negro
aittn tumble off the roof and explode iiis
iheai," It is about time to nip that slan­
der. It was a hotel towgl. The remain­
der of the item is substantially correct,
and is a circumstance that may occur any
place where there i« a three story hotel, a
stone pavement, and a little boy on the
.street who has a mother.

Sidetracked in the Valley City yard
this morning was a train of twelve cars
Joaded wi.'.h emigrants and their effects,
bound westward. All of the new comers
3iad an appearance to thrift and intelli­
gence, and showed considerable familiari­
ty with different sections uf Dakota. In
several cases all the stock and impteinents
necessary to successfully operate a farm
were b^ing shipped, and even the faith­
ful family dog was accorded a plaee in
one instance. The new cowers are bound
.for the vicinity of Jamestown, Clarke and
Bismarck, and came from Missouri,
Iowa, ludiana, Illinois and Wisconsin,
and many more are to follow them from
the portions of the Slates in which they
resided.— Valley City Times.
The "missing link" in the great trans­
continental thoroughfare from Lake Su­
perior to the Pacific ocean is being closed
up at the rapid rate of three and a half
miles a day, and but 280 miles now re­
main to be laid to Cie those two great
water thoroughfares toother by the
Northern Pacific railroad, as enterprise
that Dakota aud Montana should delight
ite accord honor and glory for it lias made
the center of attraction to the world. The
superintendent of construction, Mr. Clark,
arrived from the Pacific slope (st. Paul
.the other day, and gave it as his expec­
tation that the gap in the ltoekk* would
fee *£osed up by the first of August, and
surely by the end of that month. This
road has opened up anew world and its
development is without a parallel in the
history of any section of the continent.

Yesterday afternoon Daniel Curtis and*
Arthur Powell discovered the dead body
of a women out in the prairie about four
miles northwest of town, within a short
distance of Mr. Powell's house, which
proved to be that of Lou Baldwin, a wo­
man of bad repute who has 'been about
Jamestown for several months. The cir­
cumstances, so far as we lAve been able
to iearn up to this writing, seem to be
that she left the house of Mrs. McDonald
in this city last Saturday evening after
dark, soon after, as will be remembered,
the wind blew up very cold. She said
she was going to a farm house out in that
direction, and it sceins that after travel­
ing four miles in the moonlight in the
severely cold wind laden with driving
snow she became bewildered and exhaust­
ed and laid down to die, with no other
attendance than the wierd whistling of
the cold wind and the pitiless beating of
the driving snow. She was about 30
years old, and but little seems to be
known of her history. W ith all the exe­
cration of society for her manner of life
the circumstances of her death will
excite a feeling of pity from the better
side of humanity The dark and dismal
surroundings of her death is still another
deep and impressive admonition to girls
to beware of and shun the p^ths that
lead down to shame and death, to a dis­
honored grave, disowned by kindred and
spurned by the world.
The body was brought in late last night
and left at A Stcmbach's, the undertaker,
where coroner Eager will hold an inquest
this morning at S o'clock.
The Social.
The Methodist social held at the resi­
dence of John Vennum, last evening, was
very liberally attended, there being nearly
one hundred people present. The time
was pleasantly occupied by varions modes
of enjoyment, prominent among which
might le mentioned the consideration of
a leantiful lap supper, consisting of all
the good things of the season. No pains
were scared by Mf. ami A**?- Vennum to
add pleasure to tue occasion and make
the affair a success. Something over six­
teen dollars was gathered i$ hy the fair
ladies ivho circulated the celestial cash
box. i^et the good work go on.

The Coroner's Jury.
The inquest held by coroner Eager yes­
terday over Lucinda Baldwin, whose
dead body was found on the prairie north
west of town the day before developed
some facts in addition to those giyen in
the Alert yesterday morning, from which
it appears from letters found in her pos
session that she had seen better and more
respectable days, and perhaps drifted into
the maelstrom in which she ended her
days upon earth by "a multiplicity of cir^
cumstances, which, though not. justify­
ing are to some extent palliating. It ap­
pears from a memorandum that her
maidea name was Lucinda Fanning, and
that she was married to John E. C. Bald­
win AprU 22,'6ti but does not show where
farther than "at the parsonage." A
legal document in her possession shows
that she was granted a divorce from her
husband on tlie charge of desertion May
20, 1879, by the circuit court of Bucna
Vista county. Iowa, which is signed by
Judge Ed. K. Dully. Letters from a sis­
ter named Amanda Morse, at ft. Steele,
Wyoming Territory were also found.
Also a letter from a law lirm in Lake
City, Minnesota, dated July 3, 1877, in
reference to giving her children into a
family named Pratt. Other letters speak
of the children going to school etc. Some
wisps of hair were found carefully wrap­
ped up in papers, but nothing to show
how many she had fuitlier than the plur­
al form of expression which indicates
there were more than one. She seems to
have made painting a profession to some
extent, as some bills from a firm in
Mitchell for materials for that kind of
work were found among lier effects to­
gether with some printed cards which
read "Mrs. L. J. Baldwin, Cameo Oil,}
Paintings, Canton, Dakota." She seems
to have fallen in exhaustion where her
body was found and to have struggled
with death some before yielding to its
grasp. One arm lay outstretched and
the other across her forhead as if to pro­
tect her eyes from the cutting snow which
was driven with great force by the wind
on tbat stormy night. After considering
the circumstances and hearing the evi
dence the jury rendered the following
verdict:
"That Lucinda Baldwin came to her
death by freezing Irom having exposed
herself to the weather on the prairie
about miles from Jamestown, D. T.,
on the night of March 17, 1S83.

Educational Matters.
The territorial superintendent desires^
to inform all school districts in the coon- ».
tics where districts are continued that
they should held their annual meetings I
under the law, and vote such taxes as
they think necessary, as heretofore The
officers elected should be chosen to hold
until June 30, 1884, if their term
expire in a year under the present law,
The new school year ends at that date, i]
This applies especially to Hutchinson,
Yauk ton, Clay, Union, Turner, Lincoln,
Minnehaha, Moody, Lake, iirookings,
Deuel, Cass, Barnes, Walsh, Pembina
and Lawrence Counties. In the other
counties the levy of taxes is not necessary,
since the township school board will be
chosen in time to do that. Tney had bet­
ter elect officers, however, to fill all va­
cancies, since these will have duties to
perform. All district officers qualify as
heretofore, the treasurer by bond and
oath, the director and clerk by oath, and
all then are filed with the county clerk,
and not with the district clerk.
The school law is in the printers' hands
and will be issued within three weeks.
Blanks will be sent out as rapidly as pos­
sible. The superintendent requests news­
papers to copy this.
The Silver Wedding.
The Presbyterian church was crowded
last evening, in honor of the occasion of
the silver wedding of the respected pastor
and his esteemed wife, which it was an­
nounced would be celebrated at that time
and place. Messrs W. H. Burke and J.
8. Watson acted as ushers, and Major
Lyon, B. M. Hicks and W. M. Lloya, as
groomsmen, and their wives as brides
maids. Upon taking their places, Rev.
J. H. Hartman made some extended re­
marks upon the past married life of the
couple, after which they received the con­
gratulations of their friends. The pres­
ents were few but valu tide, and consisted
of a full silver tea set, valued at $75, by a
number of friends, a silver and cut glass
pickle castor, by their oldest son, Xute, ft
basket containing two hundred new silver
dollars, with a card stating it was to make
additions to the pastor's library, and a
basket containing thirty-five silver dol­
lars with which to add to Mrs. Fanning's
tea service. The occasion was highly
pleasing to all present, and will be laid
up in the archives of memory with all
who participated as one of the happiest i
social events of the year.
