*The Weekly Bound Up of the Events of Interest and Im portance in the City 1 and County. As Q-aitliered and Prepared for itfoe Edification and Informatioa of The Alert's Numer ous Readers. Jamestown's Militta Company. Company H., headed by the fcand, pa raded the streets Monday evening clad in their new regulation uniforms, greatly to the« delight of their many lady admirers. Great credit is due'Captain Ford for his 'untiring efforts in bringing the company to so high a standard in drill and dis cipline. It is an (organization to which every young man skould belong, the «x i©rciee being mild and beneficial, both mentally and physically. It is said fihat after the parade ten men approached the commanding officer and expressed a de sire to enlist. They could not be ac cepted, however, for the present, as the company's qudfca is already full. The success of the company an3 steadyiinter- •est taken in all its affairs i3 a matter of great congratulation to all-of the friends of the organization. Their next move of importance will be to secure a commodi ous and substantial armory, and ssteps have already been taken, which will probably secure for them a building suf ficient for all-company purposes, and al so to include a gymnasium, and probably a complete theatrical stage. Invitation was Acknowledged. Some complaint has been made that the editor's invitation t® Col. Danan's party to visit at Big Stone lake wasraever iasknowledged. Col. Donanwritesto the Argus that his southern lady visitors did certainly .respond and cannot understand why it was that the message was net re ceived, unless -it was snatched heaven ward in an envelope of cloud, under the impression that Dakota lay in that direc tion. The following is a copy and the colonel's note in-addition: HOTEL LAFAYETTE, MINNETONKA, July 28.—To the president of the Dakota Press association: The ladies of iiny southern party request me to acknowledge, wish many and since®© thanks, your kind myi-• tatiota and to say that, did n©t other ap pointenents prevent, they would be de lighted to jneet, in tfce gentlemen of the Dakota Press association, the assembled brains, -wisdom and virtue of the greatest and w«sst treated territory in the union.

A Popular Journal. Edward A. Webb, publisher of the Northwestern Fanner, was in the city yesterday looking over the Dakota Val ley herd of I. C- Wade with the inten tion of writing up these famous Holsteins in a future issue of the Farmer. From a pmnll beginning Mr. Webb has developed his enterprise into one of the most suc cessful and popular agricultural and utock journals in the northwest. Its circulation is already large, and constant ly increasing. rl'he publication of the Fanner now requires a separate building, a large force of employees, and will soon recinil© additional press facilities for tne increasing editions. The paper was started three or four years ago as a small monthly by two compositors on the Argus, who, after a few months efforts, abandoned the enterprise to Mr. Webb, and he, by energy and ability, made it .the highly successful journal that it is. Its future is brighter than ever. Arf Elevator Election. The last annual meeting of the North ern Dakota Elevator company at James town was held Monday at the ofhee of Attorney Camp.

ELECTRIC LIGHT MATTERS. "Honest John" Indulges in Some Remarks. EDITOR ALERT:—I want the privilege of asking some members of the common council a few questions. Mr. KSaus of fers to furnish this city 15 lights at $95 a lifcht each year for ten ye#rs. That ameunts to $1,425 =a year, or, in ten years, to $14,250. Mr. Durstine offers to put •in.'the same light for $124.50 alight each year that amounts to $1,067.50 a year, •«r, in ten years, to $18,675. '.That makes Mr. Durstinste 'lights cost tine city $4,425 more than Mr. Klaus. I suppose €hat, averaging up the nest ten years, tilie city will need about 15 lights a year lighting the --streets. New, I own a bouse and lot and some otfeer property in the second ward, and I want to ask Alderman Hughes what right he has to make me help pjy $18,675 tfixes when tlaecity could get the same iEght for 814,250? I have heard that Mr. iDur stine's bid was accepted because he of fered t© furnish light to private parties cheaper 'than Mr. Klaits. Now, I want to know how the city is going to fee the price which Mr. Durstijae can charge Mr. Ingraham for electric lights in the 'Cap ital house? If you can make Mr. Dur stine .give me electricity as cheap, why don't jou make Mr. Shoenberg and Mr. Bowman sell coal oil a little chopper? What ^business is it of the city of -James town whether I or anybody else pays 12 cents,a pound for meat and 25 cents for three loaves of bread .-and 1% cents an hour .for electric light in my house, or pay 10-cents for meat, .21 cents for tasead, and °f a ceQt for light? Would mot your ordinance or contract with Mr. Durstine, fixing rates to. private contain ers, be, just so much waste paper? But supposing you *eould make Mr. Durstine sell Mr. Ingraham electricity at BO muJhjer hour, then.your argumeaat .is that the city ought t© jpa-y more in ostder that private consumers may pay a little less. Now, I live back .from the main streets, .and am one .of .those who are classed among the poar,people. Wheat it comes to voting, however, we are in the majority, and can "git thar" just tfcfi same. I .am told that in'Chicago, Mil waukee, and other kc^ge .cities electric lights have been used for sotae years, that .not more than ose house in ten is lighted with them. don't sup pose I shall see any electric Sight in my house for several years ,an electric light would looSc rather out of jal&ce in my house, anyaow, although it iwomld set-off the rag carpat on the floor and the pine table I am wsiiting on, in great style. I like the idea of having the city lighted iby electricity, £ind am willing to pay my ahare towards it but I don't believe that I ought to he made to help pay $4,425 bonus, so that Messrs. Wateon and Dris coil, and a few other "leading citizens' may light their parlors a few cents a week cheaper than they otherwise eould. I voted for Mr. Hughes last spring—I had to, like all the other railroaders. Now I want to ask him and Mr. Driscoll whether they think they were elected to represent all the people of their ward or only the upper crust whether they rep resent the interest of the whole city or of a few prominent gentlemen living on the front streets whether they think it is right that all the poor people of this town and all the vacant lots should be taxed to pay $4,000 extra, so that about fifty families may have cheap lights? I don't ask Alderman Wateon any questions because I think I know already just about what he represents in this matter, and I don't ask' Alderman Ingraham because he could not give any reasons for bis vote anyhow, except that Mr. Watson voted that way. Yours truly, HONEST JOHN. Jamestown, Aug. 23,1887. CITY (COUNCIL. A special meeting of the city council was held yesterday afternoon at the coun cil room, Mayor Graham in the chair. Present—Aldermen Clark, Dole, Driscoll, Hughes, Ingraham, Mueller and Watson. Absent—Alderman Selvidge. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved, after which the fol lowing call forthe meeting, signed by the mayor and seven aldermen was read: To the City Council of the City of James town: Gentlemen: Take notice that a special meeting of the city council is hereby call ed to meet at the council chambers at 4:00 p. m. this 23 day of August, 1887, for the purpose of introducing and passing an electric light ordinance, and for the transaction of other business pertaining thereto. Alderman Watson introduced an ordi nance granting a license to L. B. Durs tine, his heirs, executors or assigns, to erect electric light poles and string wires in the streets and alleys of Jamestown for the period of ten years. The ordi nance is drawn up in conformity to the electric light circular, and the bid of Mr. Durstine. On motion the ordinance received its second reading by title only. Alderman Hughes moved that the council then adjourn to meet again Sat urday at 4:00 p. m. Carried. Before the meeting was called to order, Mr. Klaus, who was present to represent the bid of Klaus & Co*, stated that he still maintained that his bid was the low est, and asked the councilmen not to rush the ordinance through at one meeting but to give him a few days until his part ner arrived from Milwaukee, when they would endeavor to present their claims, which he considered to be such as would warrant the delay both for the city and citizens. A number of other spectators were present, but none of them partici pated in the proceedings or advocated any changes »Tother plans. A Well Liked Performance. A large house greeted Mr. Sully and his fine company last evening. The play •of '"Daddy Nolan" is a domestic comedy, tike hilarity of which is softened by occa sional tenches of pathos and sentiment. As a performance which gave general satisfaction to the audieace, pone has been eeen here for a long time that will equal it- Mr. Sully is a thor oughly agreeaKle actor, his ^sturdy char acter of the proud yet honest and -merry old Daddy Nolan brings constant testimo ny from the pudienceof las ability. Noth ing he does is overdrawn, except "perhaps a Sttle tendency to "horseplay" in the seeond act, which, however, takes univer sally with the boys and :#i»ls. The spec ialty part of the program is vory good, the singing and dancing being excellent. JAMESTOWN. DAKOTA, THURSDAY. AUGUST 25. 1887 The smallness of the stage ^prevented the bridge scene from beiaag 'displayed. The excuses of the management therefore were cheerfully accepted, in the general pleasure of the otherwise -satisfactory per formance The couapcziy has played to .good business all the way through the .Northern Pacific circuit, asd while the tplay and-star are new to western audi ences, both take at .sight with the theater ifroiiig people here as well as elsewhere.) tfihould Sully oaae this way again ike can be assured of ianother large house. Kincllj but Firmly., Says Nay. Governor Church MplyE .very kindly t© iL A. Wasrken, of Caes coiraty, who asks ixtir the pardon of Edward Hhompson,.a* fflanvict. The governor sacy® in the mat tier: In reference to the matter of pardon of Si ward Thompson,wMle.thematters that yeu refer te are very pathetic and cer tainly appeel to thekiadmessof my heart, yec matters.af this kind would not jus-, tify me in staying tiae hanS of the law an^l granting a pardon to Thompson. The matter,«f the enforeeinent of the law and the punichment of off enders and vio lators thereof is sometlma# that society ihas.a-deep interest in, and is .something -.that I cannot overlook merely because some niching heart cries out and .asks that jpunis&ment .be stayed. I eamnat for this ireasoE .alone, grant a pardon. I am con stantly-importuned in cases of thas char acter," and I find it to be the hardest part •of any official duties, in numerous cases, •to declice to interfere. In this nastier I ean say nothing at this time as to what may future action will be. At the pajper tia»e I will consider it, and I trust will he afcle to dispose of it as justice and the tfM6 interest of society demand. Yours truly, L. K. CHCBCH. Declines the Challenge. A Tribune reporter asked Kev. Sen. Ham what reply be should make B. S. Taylor of Jamestown who challenged him to debate. He replied: "If the gentleman craves notoriety, which is ap parent, he will .find the field sufficiently broad for men of his capacity in answer ing my sermon. He had better do this before trying a thing more difficult." The Tribune aids: Bev. Caleb Ben Ham does very wisely not to accept the invitation of B. S. Taylor, the Salvation Army leader of Jamestown, to indulge in a joint discussion on the question of tem: perance. When Mr. Ben-Ham settles down to a sweet and eloquent silence in regard to these challenges, he will have won a victory. He preached a sermon which attracted attention. His aim should be—and is—to keep right on preaching sermons, in his pulpit and not on the rostrum. List of Letters.
