Postmaster Klaus has a big belief in Cleveland's luck. He offered today to beta half interest in the Gladstone Ho tel company, valued at §35,000, against another half interest in the same com pany, with Mr. William Llovd, and left the bet open until Saturday night. The neck tie social given by the stu dents of the college last evening was a very pleasant affair. About fifty couples from town attended. Recitations, vocal and instrumental music and games, were indulged in to a late hour, when refresh ments were served in the library. The entertainment netted about $10.50. The Alert is in receipt of a letter from "a citizen of Mandan in regard to a white man living in Jamestown with a colored woman. The letter states that they have been so living in Jamestown for about three weeks, and that the man has left his lawful wife in delicate health with two small children one a nursir.g baby— in destitute circumstances and they have been compelled to apply to friends for assistance. "The woman is not able to work,'"the letter concludes ''and we pro pose to see that the man supports his children."' There is apparently no ob struction in Dakota to the amalgamation of races but this seems to be a case where the intervention of officials should occur. Children will freely take Dr. J. H.

Mr. Griilin is a reliable dealer whose goods are never misrepresented. Bismarck Tribune: "Bob" Wallace, .the sedate and ministerial representative of the James river metropolis, came in from the east yesterday. It is rumored that he is slightly interested in the politi cal situation and that he will be found in the thickest of the fight at Jamestown next Tuesday. Perkins te Prescott, general agents for the American building and loan associa tion of Minneapolis are in the city, com pleting the organization of the local branch here, which was begun some weeks ago, anil about 150 shares sub scribed at the time. Intending members will meet for organization Monday at Mayor Allen's ofiice. Capt. E. L. Welles has been covered up with extra railroad work for the past two or three weeks. The inter-state com merce law has compelled the railroads to largely increase the red tape of accounts and new forms are being issued constant ly which add to the work in many ways. The unusual pressure of ordinary busi ness has kept all hands at the company's headquarters busy day and night. The Electric Light company have fin ished wiring the court house and the Odd Fellows hall. Both are now brightly il luminated by the brilliant incandescent lamps. There are over 500 of the lights in use now. The company anticipated getting about (300 before winter. All who use them would not exchange them for oil lamps. The contrast is greatly in fa vor of the electrics. The scarcity of day laborers in Dak ota is daily shown by applications for their services. Farmers are short handed everywhere. The Northern Pacific rail road company has also found it impossi ble to secure enough men to do surfacing and other work preparatory to putting the road bed in shape for winter. A large number of Italian laborers have been brought west and set at this work. They are giving good satisfaction on the Missouri division. For the past week or more the James River valley train has been bringing in from 25 to 50 emigrants from points in South Dakota, bound for the far west. These people are generally no better off than the emigrants direct from the old country. They sleep in the depot over night and seem very glad to get aboard the midday train where excellent berths are to be had without extra cost. Few families in this part of the territory are going to leave Dakota. Charlie Yerkes, the accommodating ex press messenger on the J. & N., reports that geese are still seen in thousands on the stubble fields along the track. Near Buchanan, Melville and Pingree they are very plenty, and if politics did not take lip" the spare time of most sportsmen, who are after bigger game this fall, the market in Jamestown would be well sup plied. As it is, the birds are not found for sale here at all, and yet they are cheaper than meat, and much to be pre ferred to most of it. it is said. A good many peculiar election bets have been made this year but about as good a thing as has happened here was over-heard last evening. A republican and a democrat were discussing politics when the former abruptly exclaimed "I'll play you a game of seven up to see how we both vote if you win I vote a democratic ticket if I win you vote a republican ballot." "Its a go" the demo crat said. Without knowing how the game came out The Alert will venture to say that it is about a stand off as to which party will get the two votes. The plan of moving the Arlington ln. tel at Minnewaukan litis proved a great success. The building was marked off in sections, each numbered, sawed, and loaded on fiat cars. The whole house was put on wheels in a very satisfactory manner and will be put together beyond question, equally as well, at Brainerd. Mr. Wise is an enterprising man and all Dakota people wish him success in his new location. The Arlington will be missed from the west end of Devil's Lake by many accustomed to find excellent hospitalitv there. Spiritwood Bugle: Never before in the history of this county has Spiritwood had a candidate for county office, and we are consequently elated.' We are glad that the monotony is broken- glad that a worthy townsman lias ijeen so handsome ly remembered, and giad that the county will secure tbe services of such an able gentleman. Wm. W. Graves came here from Albion. Mich., six years ago and has seen all the tips and downs of a farmer's life since. He served his coun try in the war of the rebellion, being amons? the first to enlist. He was pro moted through all the grades to the captaincy for meritorious services anil honorably discharged at the close of the campaign which saw the surrender of Lee. He is at present holding the posi tion of secretary to the Homer school township board, and, as always, is giving complete satisfaction. No man in this county can make a mistake in voting for Mr. Graves and we predict that compara tively few will make the mistake of voting against him. L. B. Mine'- has some foreign capital to loan out long time favorable inter est. Ileal estate security. Come and see me. L. B. MINER. From Monday's Daily. Maybe the candidates wern't working hard today.

Gott don't propose to get mixed up in politics but does propose to get in a bigger wheat crop than ever next spring. His entire force is busy turning back ground during this pleasant weather. Tower City Herald: Some of the boys who went out to Centralia, W. T., write home that there are 100 men for every job of work,—that there is no govern ment land worth having one can get hold of, and that the country is settled by "poor whites" who moved away from the south before the war broke out. Mr. and Mrs. Alex Allen are intending to make the Gladstone their home for the winter. They will be welcome back to Jamestown. Mrs. Allen is now in Minneapolis being treated for a sliarht inflammation of the eyes. Mr. Allen's business engagement for the St. Paul Pioneer Press will demand his attention in Dakota and Montana. Conductor McMonagle says the party who wrote the account of the voting for the plush rocker at the Catholic fair hist week was away oil" in his remarks about those 2,000 votes which were not voted. He says that if the polls had remained open one minute longer the railroad boys would have come to the front with 5,001) more votes that they wanted the chair and got it but would have spent 3500 more if it had been necessary to get it. Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Ross, who have lived in Jamestown since 1879, leave to morrow for Butte City, M. T., where they will reside in the future. Mr. lioss is a thoroughly reliable man, a first class car penter himself, and expects to secure contracts of an extensive kind in Butte. His services can be commended to all. Their residence and considerable city property he still holds. The house has been rented to the pastor of one of the German churches. Rev. W. H. Wyatt-Hannatli of this city has accepted a call to the rectorship of Christ church at Yankton. His duties will begin December 1st. The church is one of the largest and most flourishing in the terntory, having a large member ship and a fine church edifice valued at $20,000. Mr. and Mrs. Hannatli have made many friends in Jamestown who will regret to see them depart but con gratulate them on the call to a wider and larger field of usefulness. Election betting has received a re markable impetus during the last two days and touav nearly every one who voiced a political sentiment has* been in vited to back up his words with stuff. Several large bets were made Saturday. The Cleveland men are not eo confident here as they are reported to be in some places in the east and wont offer any bet ter bet than even. The Harrison men as a general rule, consider that a soft thing and have not lost much time in covering democratic money. Physicians prescribe Dr. J. H. McLean's Tar Wine Lung balm in it they find no trace of opium or morphia, while its effi cacy in curing all throat or lung diseases is wonderful. Sold by Wonnenberg & Avis.

Richard Sykes of Manchester sends to the Sykeston Index a copy of the Man chester Gazette which re-produces a ser mon by Bishop Walker of Dakota. The effort was pronounced a brilliant am' scholarly one. Mr. A. 7. Smith received an express envelope this morning containing over $1050, for rent money, obtained from his Wells county farm. Besides this he has retained 000 bushels for seed. Pretty good for rent of a farm in any country. J. J. Flint was taken with a sudden at tack of plurisy while returning overland from Pingree a few days ago. When Bu chanan station was reached he was too sick to continue further, and stopped at Mr. and Mrs. Farnsworth's. Mr. Flint was expected to he brought to the city to day. The republicans are congratulating themselves on the return of Judge War nock to their ranks. His :50 years of preaching democracy make his conver sion at. this late day all the more notable. GEM A Practically Perfect Preparation The democrats are in mourning however over the loss of two able champions in one season The Capital and Dor Pinnier. Mrs. Lucind Newland wife of W. B. Mew land who died yesterday morning of paralysis and dropsy at the Commercial hotel will be buried to-morrow, the ser vices being held at the Commercial, at 10 o'clock.

Hilt/, writes The Alert from Minneapolis returning thanks for copies of the paper of which he says: have had nothing do my heart so much good for a long time as the coming of The Alert." The captain adds that he left a good job in a hardware store to work in a coal yard at a "bigtrer salary." He shovels 80 tons of coal per day and does salvation work until midnight, which remark causes him to observe that some people think he is working to hard but that he "prefers to work out than to rust out." From a dodger Bro. Hiltz encloses it is seen that he addressed a prohibition rollv at Lvndall hall last Saturday. He is billed as as "Capt. Hiltz the ex-cow boy." The captain is as philosophical in disposition as ever. He says love—not the love for a giddy maiden but love for bis fellow man—lightens the labor of his daily coal heaving. From '.Veaenesilav'sOallv. Harry Lloyd, of LaMoure. is in the city. Before buying coal or wood, see Geo. R. Topliff & Co. Hon. A. M. Thomson, of Eddy coun ty, left for Milwaukee today to be absent until spring. Dr. Galloway of Fargo, came in this morning on business for the North Da kota hospital.

Children Cry For PITCHER'S CASTOR IA for How It Iviioks in the City. Anybody would know it was election day in Jamestown without being inform ed of the fact. The city is filled with voters and candidates and election talk is on every tongue. There is little doubt but that a full vote will be polled. Some of the con tests are remarkably close and every can didate is endeavoring to bring out his full strength. At noon about 350 votes had been cast. The day has been pleas ant, the saloons have been closed and not a drunken man has been seen in the city Good order prevailed at every pol ling place. Of course it is impossible to forecast the result with any degree of certainty but the Alert gives the following prevailing impression of the "wav it i« going:" The efforts of the prohibitionists and the candidacy of Henderson have drawn considerably from the republican legislative ticket, particu larly from Mr. Glaspell. He will not poll tlie full republican vote while Capt. Farrell will, of course, get the full demo cratic strength. For delegate, Mathews will have a majority larger than that of Gif ford two years ago. For treasurer, Mr. Gieseler and Mr. McGinnis are seemingly running a pretty even race and the same is true of Messrs. Sclimitz and McKecli nie, candidates for sheriff. Even bets are being made on all of them. For register, Lutz and Miner seem to be leading in the city. Ashley is getting a smaller city vote than the majority of the repub lican candidates, but his friends expect him to gain in the country precincts. Johnson Nickeus is in the lead for dis trict attorney. Odds of three to one were given on him. The friends of Mr. Frye have turned out and are doing good work for him, but the indications point to his defeat. Geo. H. Woodbury seems to be running ahead for commissioner, and it is the general impression that if he only holds his own in the county precincts, he will lie elected. The fight for auditor is apparently close in the city, between Selvidge and Graves. For probate judge Branch is leading. Homey for assessor, has no opposition. Charley Flint is mak ing a good run for assessor, and his friends claim is assuredly elected. 1 r. DePuy will be the next coroner, if indi cations count for anything. The vote on the sale of intoxicating liquors seems to have been lost sight of to a certain extent in the greater inter est and absorption in the personal con tests. The city will give a much larger majority for the sale than it did last year. Desirable as Settlers. The Russian settlers in LaMoure coun ty are considered most desirable people to get into the county and their honest industrious and saving habits commend them to all who have dealings with then:. An enterprising merchant at Edgeley, says the Mail, has gone to much pains and expense to fit up a shanty in the rear of his store for the purpose of affording shelter at night for the Russians. Seats and bunks are arranged around the in side and a small stove gives out a genial warmth. These people come a distance of 30 or 40 miles and are compelled to re main over night. Heretofore they have slept in their wagons or begged the privi lege of a bun It on the floor of some kind hearted merchant's store. Dinappearetl With $3"». Edward Kenoch, a farm hand working for Peter Gosperdor, came to town yester day afternoon with a load of wheat which he sold for $35. He also had in his pos session $20 given him by Herman Schultz. Kenoch intended to pay some debts but at midnight he disappeared and has not been seen since. The team went into the conntry to Gosperdor's home this morning and parties interested in the $55 which Kenoch had when lie disappeared, are looking for him today. Kenoch is a dark complected man of medium heighth with black mustache and one "black eye" received in a row last night. A XcwKirni. Frank W. Hall, one of the best known jewelrymen and a gentleman who has sold the trade in the northwest for a number of years has entered into part nership with Mr. A. J. Tellner, and the new firm will open soon with a new fresh stock. They have purchased the Houghton & Williams fixtures and will occupy that stand. Nothing Like the Dinner Horn. Japanese gongs melodiously summon guests to dinner, and are considered a great improvement upon the dinner bell. Of all devices, however, which have beAi invented to call people to meals, includ ing the bugle, the gong, strings of bells suspended from the portiere rod, and the soft spoken waiter, no arrangement sends such a thrill and awakes such an appetite as the farmer's horn.—Chicago Herald. There are 800,000 freight cars on th« various railroad lines in the United States. A company lias been formed at f'ona •du Lac to manufacture horse, cattle and poultry food. Children's Complaints. TOM) OF TVI'PKX. A Ijittle Town and a Big' Farm—A (iooil Country ami a Prosperous Community. One of the prize little towDS of the Northern Pacific is Tappen--Uncle John Van Dusen's town the headquarters of the big Troy farm operations. Every thing always looks neat and thriving at Tappen. The Stanton house, kept by an experienced landlady, Mrs. McCagg, is the most celebrated little hotel in North Dakota for the creature comforts there provided. The cooking, the beds, the homelike air of hospitality that pertain to the Stanton house make it an oasis in the desert—a roof tree that all travelers strive to reach and a tavern where the best is none too good for you. And at night when the wind whistles round and the fire burns bright in the big stove, provided you area friend or acquaintance of the owner of it all, Uncle John, you may get from hi in a rare social salad of experiences, information, shrewd observa tion find quiet criticism that cuts like a razor, but wherein truth glitters like a gem. Besides, there may appear later on certain red white and blue discs, which carry tin iutense meaning with them, symbolically speaking, as they begin to concentrate in pyramids before Uncle .John who like Uncle Sam, is a steady admirer of the red, white and blue, with a tendency .towaid the red and a mania for the blue. To all these ingredients of pleasure there is added a conservative flavoring, Kentucky hand made, long hutched in the alembic of patient alchemy, which, throws a prevailing richness over the entertained and opens the doors for un obstructed cooiradship. The country around Tappen is cultiva ted like the Dutch farms in Holland. Neat and numerous stacks of gram abound orfall sides, and the demolishing separator is pounding out hard wheat at, a rapid gait every day. The Northern Dakota elevator is full all the time and the agent says he ought to keep Jack Chambers there constantly to punch up the railroad company to furnish cars t* ship out in. Tappen gets a good deal of wheat, almost if not quite as much as Steele, further west, where Logan coun ty's contribution swells the receipts. The quality is the best handled in any of the elevators along the road this year. The farm and its complete equipment of houses, barns, mules, horses, dogs, pigs, chickens, its parish church, general store, anil ample train of attendants,, make the town. Over 2,o00 sheep are now being herded uear the hills to the north, and over 250 head of fat cattle graze on the farm to the south. Everything pertaining to a well managed plantation is to be seen at the Troy farm, and th village is near the center and radiating point. The railroad company is now utilizing one of the farm's warehouses for a depot, pending the erection of a new structure, which is badly needed, with an operator, to round out and complete the improve ment. The little village of Tappen retains its substantial character, and the settlers around are probably better satisfied with their proximity to the place for their trading point, than many residents of other parts of the county—the unlucky Kidder, where taxes ascend as by eleva tor, and to avoid which the county of Stanton was evolved by Mr. VanDusen and the legislature, and involved imme diately thereafter, by processes of law which have not been removed by ju dicial assistance up to date. Tapnen wa9 never boomed, because in the formation period, when strangers and investors asked the opinion and advice the townsite proprietor he neve misrep resented the town or its surrounding conntry, but wonderful to relate, told the truth. Consequently the lurid attrac tions of other towns caught many who have either effervesced with the boom or ar3 now able to see that it would have been different had they known more. Healthy Dakota. A number of former Dakotans who have gone to the coast write back that fever and ague are very common there, and much sickness is seen. They all wish they were back in Dakota where good health is the rule, sickness the ex CBption. The expression, "we are not here for our health" will become trans posed as the benefits of this climate are better known, and "we are here for our health" will be uttered in its place. The disease of asthma, practically incurable elsewhere, can, be relieved and perma nently cured quicker and more effectually in this climate than in any other part of the United States. Hundreds of afflicted testify to this fact. It is estimated that 135.000 or 140.000 tickets were printed for the use of peo ple in this county. There never were as many tickets printed in an election here before. The slips have all kinds of names indiscriminately—democrat, republican, prohibition, mugwump and mongrel, un designated and unqualified. Scarcely a ticket could be found today that a voter did not scratch or plaster with stickers.
