"J h'H w*-y,t i- jfei i»,T, [H SPIRITWOOD ENCAMPMENT. FULL PROCEEDINGS OF COM MANDEU HAMMOND'S COURT MARTIAL*. The Mid-Summer Encampment of the G. A. R. Posts of North Dakota Comes to an End Saturday night After four Days of Pleasure and Enjoyment. The first mid-summer encampment of the Grand Army posts of the 10th dis trict of the Dakota G. A. E.. under com mand of I. C. Wade, colonel commanding that division, far exceeded as a pleasure able events the hopes of its originators. This encampment is anew idea which or iginated here. It is entirely independ ent of the March encampment and was arranged solely for a good time and the promotion of sociability and the exten sion of acquaintances among the com rades of the various northern posts. This being thf first test of the practicability of the idea, the success of the move was watched with considerable interest by those interested. While the attendance from a distance was not aS large as was expected, and was only a small propor tion of the number that the representa tives present pledged would .attend next year if the encampment were repeated, Jamestown and Stutsman county people were well represented and swelled the at tendance to between three and four hun dred. Spiritwopd lake is probably the most delightful place in the northwest to spend a week's outing and will no doubt be the scene of many succeeding en campments. GENERAL ORDER NO. 1. The following is general order No. 1, with which the encampment was formal ly opened: To the Comrades of the 10th Division of the Grand Army of the Republic: It gives me great pleasure to meet you at this beautiful camp ground. I hope all will labor only to have a pleasant time and a renewal of old fellowships. A name ever dear to the soldier's heart has been selected for this camp, "John A. Logan." The following officers have been ap pointed and will be obeyed accordingly: E. S. Miller, adjutant J. S. Perriton, sergeant major Jno. F. Vennum,quarter master H. E. Ward, quartermaster ser geant £dolf Sachs, drum major with the Jamestown band, the band of the divi sion. By order of I.C. WADE, Col. Com'd'g 10th Div. GENERAL ORDER NO. 2. General order No. 2 soon followed. It is as follows: It gives the commander great pleasure to see so many of that grand organization the Woman's Relief corps present. With out them it would be folly for the Grand Army ever to carry forward any of its many^endeavors for the relief of our dis abled veterans. They are hereby assign ki ed, as they ever are, the right, not only of Ithe camp, but the right in every support they may give to the GAR. To the Sons of Veterans may your number never grow less but continue in work until every son of a veteran is duly enrolled on the rolls of your camps. •JM Tour are asked to lend your assistance during the encampment and for which r: ss*s you have the thanks of the commanding officers. 0f I. C. WADE, Com'g. THE MOCK COURT MARTIAL. The feature of the encampment was the mock court martial of Department Commander Hammond and Adjutant Territon. The following is the order .calling the court: HEADQUARTERS TENTH DIVISION, DEP'T OF DAKOTA, G. A. R., CAMP JOHN A. LOGAN, July 20.1888. General Order No. 7.

Burke commander, to meet with them at Grand Forks, Sept. 19, 20 and 21st for a grand reunion of all the soldiers and sailors of North Dakota and for the purpose of forming a North Dakota Veteran association. By order of I. C. WADE, Col* Commanding 10th Division. THURSDAY NIGHT'S BOMBARDMENT. Thursday evening a delegation from Valley City reached the camp about 11 o'clock. The camp was quiet as every body had turned in and the vets from the Valley proceeded to range their wooden cannon, et cetera on the bill overlooking the camp at a distance of a few hundred yards and Major Sachs opened a furious cannonade while the other members of the party maintained a sharp musketry fire. 'The sleeping vets awoke in the greatest consternation, and men in all sorts of night garbs rushed out of the tents. The roar of the bombs was something they had not heard the like of since the war, and they were at a' loss to comprehend what it meant. Eventually some of them ven tured up the hill and discovered that it was some of their old comrades giving them a sample of home-made war. The noise caused several horses to break away and parties were out all day Friday hunting the frightened animals. When the vets recovered from their surprise they donned their day time habiliments and proceeded to welcome the visitors in a good hearty fashion. A number of speeches of welcome and responses were made. THE ROSTER. Ot course the attendance was chiefly drawn from Jamestown, nearly every member of Ft. Seward post being pres ent with his family. As far as obtainable the following is a list of the visiting com rades and friends who remained through the encampment. The names of many who stayed but a day could not be ob tained: Valley City—Josiah S. Weiser PoBt No. 66.—A. J. Henry, J. B. Soule, G. B. Vallandigham, Charles Etzell, Frank Scangale, M. Tracy, Mayor Sachs, J. C. Gipson. Cooperstown Post No. 131—J. L. Has kell and daughter, B. B. Brown, wife and five children, J. A. Lawrence, wife and three children, W. W. Lawrence and wife. New Rocliford, Post No. 113—C. H. Culver, Luke Wilson. Steele—Winfield Scott Post Jjfo. Mi. and Mrs. John W. Carrot, TVfoC and Miss Gertie Carroll, Mr. apA Mrs. C. D. Pattelift?* Mr. andr H. J. Barnaby, Mr. and Mrsr^m. Sheppard, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Nixon, Thos. Allshouse and the Misses Allshouse, Mr. and Mrs. Rus sell Shepard and daughter, George J. Sykes, James and Wm. Hogan, and Sam Russell. ENCAMPMENT NOTES. Friday night was the night of the fire work display. Rev. Mr. Teal caught the largest fish during the encampment—a fifteen pound-' er. There was a great deal of inquiry Sat urday morning among the ladies to find out who "Bob" was. Mrs. H. J. Barnaby, of Steele, who has a very sweet voice, sang "Tenting on the Old Camp Ground." Bathing was one of the most popular diversions of the encampment and the most generally participated m. It was conceded by everyone at the encampment that John Nichols could make tbe most noise at four o'clock in the morning. E. L. Calkins wore the most pictur esque bathing suit—a genuine Mother Hubbard—borrowed from one of the la dies for the occasion. Mrs. B. B. Brown and husband, of Cooperstown, sang "The Sword of Bonk' er Hill" in a yery effective manner, and were loudly applauded. It was proven by one of the provocating witnesses at the court martial, that the SfeSE. ..„ o.. .„ .nn':,.v ,.. cow and chickens weft related—they be longed to one family. After brigade inspection in the after noon, the division commander was noti fied that there would be funeral services held on the parade ground over a dead marine, and that his presenoe was neces sary- After the prisoners were arrested, the form of trial or court martial was changed from general court martial to that of drum head court martial, which gave the prisoners but small show for their lives. Judge Nickeus and Major Lyon ap peared at the camp Saturday. They were immediately arrested, the former as a spy intruding on government land with out Sparks' permission, and the latter as a deserter. Mr. Nickeus was marched up to the cannon's mouth and sentenced to be shot, while Major Lyon was remanded to the guard house. Friday night, after everyone had re tired, the vets concluded that they want ed an old fashioned camp fire. Accord ingly they were hustled out of bed,march ed out on the prairie, formed into a circle, and for several hours told war stories and experiences of the usual thril ling and exciting nature. Capt. McGin nis is said to have more than held his own in this as in all things. At the Redfield encampment the terri tory was divided into districts, and a commander appointed to have general supervision of each. The tenth district, of which Col. Wade is colonel, comprises seven posts, and all that territory north of the seventh standard parallel and west of Cass county. It was this district which met in encampment last week. It was the intention originally that the Far go district, No. 9, under command of Capt. Burke, should also meet at Spirit wood, but that arrangement was aband oned when that district decided to have an encampment of their own at Grand Forks during fair week. Found Dead. While looking for hay land along the nver between the mill and the asylum bridge Merrick Moore discovered the dead body of Barney Finnegan an old man of probably sixty years who has been around town for a number of years. Barney suddenly disappeared from sight about the 13th inst. He had not been seen since and it was thought quite likely that some such fate had befallen him. The body was' taken to the court house where Coroner Thorold empanelled the following jury: Ed Lathrop, Thos. Glea son and Chas. Boyd. Two witnesses were examined—Merrick Moore who found the body, and Frank Boyd who saw Mr. Finnegan July 13th. The jury returned a verdict, "That from the evidence before us and from the ap pearance of the dead body as viewed by ue we conclude that Barney Finnegan came to his death between the 13th day of July 1888 and the 22d day of July 1888, from the effects of intoxication, ex posure and starvation." The funeral was held yesterday and the remains interred at the Highland Home cemetery. The Methodist Ministers. The Ministerial association of the Fargo district North Dakota conference, Meth odist Episcopal church will meet in ,this city Tuesday afternoon at 2 p. m., and will probably continue until Thursday noon. An elaborate program embracing papers, addresses and discussions of pert inent topics of church work has been prepared. The following are members of the association and are doWn on the pro gram to participate: Rev Bilbie, presiding elder, Fargo Rev W Cook, Bismarck. Rev S N Griffith, Casselton. Rev McConnehay, Sanborn. Rev E S Ire8tpn, Elliott. Rev S W Ingham, Fargo. :^. r' Rev VanEvery, Jamestown. Rev Buttelman, Jamestown. Rev Monroe, LaMoure.

Rev James,' Steele. Rev P.ft'Cook, Tower City. ReWfj Spoor, Valley City. Itefv Herbert, Hazelbrock. Central Committee Meetings The republican county central com mittee met .Friday afternoon in the office of Nickeus & Baldwin and decided to issue a call for a convention to be held October 10th. The precinct caucuses to elect delegates will be held August 11th. The basis of representation will be the same as that of the convention last spring which elected delegates to tbe Water town aad Jamestown territorial conven tions. The total representation is 51 of which number the city has 20 and the county has 31 delegates. ... Judge Rose Confirmed. The Benate yesterday confirmed the appointment of Chief Justice Fuller. The republicans were divided on the con firmation,Senators Edmunds, Evarts and Steward speaking for the opposition. The Illinois senators advocated the confirma tion. The senate also confirmed the appoint ment of Judge Rose of Jamestown^mong others. He will probably take the oath of office within a few days. He's all Right. Columbia Sentinel: Emmet Cole re* ceived a letter last week from Governor Alger of Michigan, enclosing a generous check for Richard Hollis. Mr. Hollis served in General. Alger's regiment cor ing the war, and. learning of Mr. Qollis' sufferings from cancer and inability to do anything for himself, he sent him some substantial aid. The general's reputation as a generous giver to the worthy distressed is becoming national, and there is not much wonder that Michigan holds him up as her favorite son. ..... .... .. ,. ...... .., ..... .... WILL MEET AT CARKINGTON. Republican Legislative Convention in this District Called for OctOber 17th. MINNEWAUKAN, Dak., July 19.—The republican central committee for the Twenty-second legislative district met this morning at this place and decided to call the legislative convention for Oc tober 17th. Carrington was chosen for the place of holding the meeting. The total number of delegates which will make up the convention will be fifty-two, of which number Stutsman county is al lowed seventeen. Two years ago the to tal representation was thirty-four,of which number Stut3man county had twelve. To Aid a Good Cause. A collection was taken at both miisses on Sunday at the Catholic church here, to aid Rev. Father Irwin in paying off a heavy debt incurred by him in the erection of a church and several schoolhouses in his parish in Ireland. During the depressed times from 1878 to 1882, he was desirous of giving useful em ployment to his people, and knowing that he could not more usefully employ them than in the erection of the above, he expended large sums of money on these structures, hoping upon the advent of better times to be enabled to meet these heavy liabilities. But when he had completed these structures the times went from bad to worse, and thus at his time of life, being well nigh 40 years a priest, nothing remained for him but to appeal for aid to his countrymen and other benevolent people in America. Knowing that education is an essential requirement to enable people to combat the battle of life, particularly in this free and enlightened country, and that Ire land is but a nursery and a training school for America, he felt how necessary it was to educate and prepare his people therefor, thus conferring a benefit upon them, and enabling them to become use ful and intelligent citizens of the great republio. Feeling that-the adopted coun try of such people would be also benefit ed by them, he feels confident that his appeal for the above laudable purpose will be cheerfully and generously re sponded to by the benevolent and gener ous of this prosperous and. enlightened country. A Suggestion to Farmers. The grand crop that will soon be har vested in this part of Dakota, will make all kinds of business good. Many farm ers who have been obliged to abandon their usual winter trips to the east, will no doubt renew them this year, and tb.G indications are that the rates of fars will be cheaper than ever on tbf- lines. Last season tbe great Grand Trunk road organized an excursion for western peo ple to points in Canada and the New England stater.. This excursion proved a taking enterprise as hundreds of north western farmers and others took advan tage of the, cheap rate to visit their rela tives and o\d homes. It is believed that a large number of Dakota farmers would make the east a visit thife fall or winter if some such inducement was brought to their notice. From the bountiful harvest they will reap, a little recreation and re ward for the labor of the year should be taken by every farmer, and most of them will. b(j able to do so. Take a short trip to otjfier parts of the country and see again? what advantages a big farm in Da kota has over the worn out, high priced lands of older states. Semi-Annual Statements. Last week's Weekly Alert contains the semi-annual reports of County Treasurer McGinnis and Auditor McMillan, being detailed statements of the condition of the county's finances, the receipts and ex penditures of the half year, and an item ized statement of the receipts and dis bursements of the funds of the various school townshipB of the county. A re capitulation of the statement shows the following: Amount on hand Jan 1st. '88, $9979, amount collected since that date $43,572.91 amount of cash on hand June 30, '88, $6,983.36, total amount paid out during the half year just passed $46,568. 57. The reports are full and complete, and give the taxpayers a satisfactory statement of the disposition of the coun ty funds. ileal Estate Inquiries. Captain McGinnis has received a num ber of letters fajom outside parties inquir ing into the lands for sale in Stutsman county. One party in Dakota has also written for a list of lands with lowest prices attached. The prospect of some realestate transactions in the near future is getting better each week. It is fre quently predicted that the present crop will start realestate into action again. The Hay Crop. Farmers from different points in the county bring in favorable reports of the hay prospect. Last year, o*ing to the scarcity of rain there was considerable hustling for good meadow land, which was very scarce, and many farmers went west into the twenty or thirty miles to secure their winter's supply of hay. This year, however, the outlook is much brighter. The fears that the hay crop might again prove Bhort, not on account of the lack of good meadows and sloughs, bnt because such were filled with water and the grass could not be cut on thbt account, are unfounded if the reports which reach office are correct. The unusual precipitation of moisture this spring and summer has caused every. thing on the prairie to grow with a rank and luxuriant growth almost unparalled. This appliep to gran among other things, and will result in every slough—even those which have been dry and parched for the last two years—being filled with' excellent hay-making grass, the quantity of which, throughout the whole county, will be many times that of any previous year since 1883. Even though •"iMi:.u WgMmm 'Tr^^^|pprap,» t' sloughs be well filled with water there will still remain, so it is said, enough wild grass to furnish hay for home con sumption and leave some to be shipped to Minnesota, in those portions where the grass has been drowned out, and where farmers will be compelled to ship in hay or feed straw. Base Ball Notes. Col. Klaus has received notice from Dr. Glasgow to the effect that the pro posed Casselton base ball tournament has been abandoned or postponed for the present. The doctor was the leading spirit in the movement and he having been suddenly called east, the matter has been dropped but will probably be re vived on his return. Should Casselton give the tournament the Jamestown boys will undoubtedly have a club there. The Valley City ball club will cross bats with the Jamestown club on the home grounds Saturday. A Vacancy to be Filled. The appointment of District Attorney Rose to a place on the bench entails providing his appointment is confirmed and it undoubtedly will be—his resig nation as such district attorney and a consequent vacancy in the office. It is now generally conceded that the board of county commissioners has the power to fill such a vacancy and the candidates before the board are Johnson Nickeus and S. L. Glaspell. In another column Mr. Nickeus publicly announces himself as a candidate. The term is only a short one and expires January 11889 when the new district attorney, who shall be elec ted this fall, will qualify and enter upon the duties of the office. Announcement. To my friends in Stutsman county: I wish to announce that I am a candidate for district attorney for this county should a vacancy occur. You will therefor govern yourselves accordingly should a certain petition be presented you ask ing the appointment of another gentle man. I am aware that petitions amount to but little—usually the first one pie sented is signed. Respectfully, JOHNSON N: July 14, 1889. JlCKEUS. Not Stopped. For some reason the neighboring news papers have occasionally referred to the Jamestown creamery in terms calculated to injure that enterprise among the farm ers upon whom it depends. The Carring ton News is the last to make the state ment that the creamery has stopped. This is not the fact at all. The creamery is going right along .making over 400 pounds* of butter a day, and probably do ing more business than any of the nu merous similar institutions which have sprung up in every little town where the Chicago missionaries got in their work. Bismarck Happenings. Tribune. The joy and radience and cheer which fills the home of Mr. and Mrs. Frank La Wall are accounted for by the birth of a dimpled daughter, who arrived Tuesday and will remain to cast sunshine upon the lives of happy parents, to grow up in Bismarck and to adorn capital city society. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. La Wall. The amount of money wagered in Bis marck on the probable result of the na tional campaign is growing daily. Yes terday Mr. James D. Wood of St. Paul wagered $50 with L. N. Griffin that Har rison would not carry his own state, Ih diana. The money—$100—Was deposited in the Capital National bank. COMPLIMENTARY What the Press of the Territory Thinks of Judge Rose's Appoint ment—Wide and Favorable Com ment. From among the large number of flat tering notices that have appeared in the Dakota newspapers, on the appointment Of Hon. Roderick Rose, as judge of the sixth district, The Alert re-prints the fol lowing. It is certainly a cordial and hearty endorsement, coming as it does from republican papers with two except ions: Steele Ozone (Dem.): On Tuesday last the president sent to the senate the name of Roderick Rose, of Jamestown, to be associate justice of the supreme court of Dakota, from the Sixth judicial district, vice Judge W. H. Francis, whose term has expired. Judge Rose came to Dak ota about six years ago, and settled at Jamestown, where he has since lived, having acquired a large and constantly increasing law practice. Upon forming his acquaintance Governor Church be came strongly impressed with his fitness for the bench and nrged the president to appoint him, which was done at the ex piration of the term of the present in cumbent. Judge Rose is pre-eminently qualified to discharge the duties of the office to which he has been appointed and his confirmation by the senate will be hailed with pleasurable delight by the people in all parts of the district. Ellendale Commercial, (Rep.:) Hon. Roderick Rose, formerly of Davenport, Iowa, but a resident of Jamestown for over five years, has been appointed judge of the sixth judicial district to succeed Judge Francis, whose term has expired. Mr. Rose is highly regarded by his acquaintances and the appointment is generally satisfactory. It is reported that he fill hold a term of court in Dickey county soon after going upon the bench. He will probably be confirmed without opposition. Minnewaukan Sittings, (Rep.):' Hon. Roderick Rose, of Jamestown, has been nominated by President Cleveland to be associate justice of the supreme court of Dakota, succeeding Judge Francis.

Roderick Rose, of Jamestown, as associ ate justice of the supreme court of Da kota, to succeed Wm. H. Francis whose term expired July 4th. This action of the president is appreciated by this entire section where the eminent abilities and high character of Mr. Rose is known* as a most fitting compliment to a worthy citi zen. Mr. Ro$e has been a prominent and respected member of the Jamestown bar for about five years, where his conspicu ous talents and legal erudition have won him an exalted station. The appoint ment will all the better be received be cause Mr. Rose is a resident of Dakota, learned in territorial laws4 and needs no introduction to the people among whom he is to administer justice. The New Era I most heartily endorses his nomination! and congratulates both himself and our I people upon it. Cassellton Blizzard, (Rep.): Hon.

It is by energy and perseverance that Mr. Rose has risen from the foot to the upper steps of the ladder of his profession. In his early days he was a school teacher. Since he came to Dakota, he has always been considered a most reliable counsellor. He has acquired considerable wealth in Stutsman county, in the way of reales tate, so that we shall have in Mr. Rose a man whose interests will belong to Dakota. Sioux Falls Press (Rep): The Press de sires to congratulate the Sixth judicial district and the entire territory of Dako ta, upon the appointment of Roderick Rose of Jamestown, as associate justice of the supreme court of the territory to succeed W.
