DISTRICT COURT NOTES.
The Dakota Building and Loan
Association Under In­
vestigation.
Charges of Irregularity Against
Some of the Directors in
Their Duties.
Tour Prisoners in the County Jail
Come Betore Judge Rose
for Sentence.
District Court Notes
The court was occupied the whole of
Tuesday morning with the trial of the
actions brought by the Dakota Building
& Loan association against L. B. Miner,
J. W. Cloes, Anton Steinbach and Peter
fTana, the case being heard in chambers.
Nickeus and Baldwin are attorneys for
the association, and S. L. Glaspell for
the defendants. The case will probably
occupy the whole of the day. The case
of L. B. Miaer was first taken up.
The complaint sets forth that certain
of these defendants were indebted to the
association in certain sums, and that at
an irregular meeting of these directors)
these parties were allowed to settle this
indebtedness for a sum less than the fall
amount due the association, contrary to
the interest of the other investors. The
association therefor asks to have these
proceedings cancelled and set aside as
illegal and fraudulent.
In opening the case Mr.Nickeus stated
that he should prove that the meeting at
which the releases were ordered and de­
fendant relieved from obligation to
plaintiff, was irregular, and that all busi­
ness done thereat was void because there
was no notice given of this meeting as
required by the bylaws, and it was not a
regular meeting, as is shown by the min­
utes. The beard of directors consists of
eleven members, but only fiye were pres­
ent at the meeting in question, and even
if a majority had been present their
action would not be legal unless the
others had notice given them so that
they had a chance to be present. Messrs.
Steinbach and Haas who were claimed
to have been present and voted as direc­
tors, thus making seven present and vot­
ing, were not legally authorized to act as
directors at that time because the meet­
ing, at which it is claimed that they were
appointed to fill vacancies, was not a
regular meeting, nor had the proper no­
tice been given of a special meeting to
elect them. Therefore they were not
legal directors on April 10th, when this
fraud was perpetrated,and without them
there were but five directors present. A
special meetiag can transact no business
other t.hnn that for which it is called, as
stated in the notice. Moreover, the
plaintiff alleges furthur that even sup­
posing that this meeting had been legally
called and held for this purpose, and
supposing that there had been a majori­
ty of the board present yet borrowing
members of a building association can
not force an inequitable settlement upon
the investing members. They are trus­
tees for the stockholders, and can not
therefore, without fraud, secure to
themselves advantages not common to
other membere. The board of directors
had no power, even if all the meetings
at which these proceedings took place, had
been regular, to do an act which not only
disturbed, but destroyed the vented
rights of the stockholders, in order to
benefit themselves.
In defence it is claimed that these
meetings were properly called, and that
a majority of the directors were present
and voted, believing 'that such action
was for the {best interests of the_ stock­
holders. The defendant also denied that
he was indebted to the association, in
the sum of $2000, as alleged in the com­
plaint, and states that he never owed
them more than 8845, all of which he has
repaid.
He admits that at a meeting on
April 10th, a resolution was passed by
the directors setting aside and releasing
him bom the provisions of an instrument
purporting be a mortgage on his
properly, but he alleges that this mort­
gage was null and void because it had
never been signed by his wife. He also
denies that there was any conspiracy or
agreement in regard to this resolution,
which was passed by the directors in the
belief that they were taking the action
which would best serve the interests of
the stockholders of the association. He
also alleges that this meeting was called
in a regular and
proper
manner, and that
a majority of the directors were present
and voted for the resolution and he
therefore asks for judgment with costs.
The greater part of the morning ses­
sion was occupied with the testimony of
L. T. Hamilton who was formerly the
secretary of the association. He intro­
duced and identified the books and
records of the association.
After the testimony was all in the case
was adjourned till Thursday morning, to
allow a transcript of the evidence to be
made when the case will be argued on
the points of law involyed.
At the morning session on Wednesday
Mrs. Clara E. Hulett was admitted to
citizenship.
The case of J. B. Holliday vs. H. G.
Anderson was dismissed on motion of
the defendant, the plaintiff not having
complied with the former order of this
court, to pay the defendant the sum of
*10.
Edward Callahau the young man who
was indicted by this grand jury for bur­
glary, committed at the Northern Pacific
ticket office at this city last January, and
who pleaded guilty, was brought up for
sentence. It will be remembered that
this, prisoner while confined in the
county jail managed to break his way
out through the ceiling of the jail, and
taking a horse from county commission­
er Woodbury made his escape from the
neighborhood but was recaptured at
Helena. Being questioned by the court
the prisoner said that he was 18 years
old on the 14th of last May, and that he
had never been convicted or indicted for
any offense before this. His father and
mother are now living in DeSmet, South
Dakota.
The judge before sentencing the prisoner
said that he was sorry that his age being
over 18, would prevent his being sent to
a reform sohool, which he though would
be much better for him, than a prison.
Under the statute, however, he had no
power to send a lad to a reform school
who was over eighteen years. He was
sorry to see a young man just entering
on manhood in such a .position, as in this
country there was no excuse for a heal­
thy, able-bodied young man taking to
The sentence of the court
would be that you shall be confined in
the penitentiary at Bismarck for two
years frem this date. The law allows a
sentence of five years for the offence of
burglary, but taking into consideration
that it is your first offence, the court will
only sentence you to two years, which
you will be able by good conduct to re­
duce by some months.
Fred Horton was brought up for sen
tence upon an indictment found by the
grand jury charging him with carrying
concealed weapons, to which he had
pleaded guilty. While in a state of in­
toxication one night, the prisoner was
put out of Mrs. True's boarding
house by Mr. Churchill, and when out­
side the door he drew his revolver and
fired it off in the air. It was not charged
that he pointed it at anybody. The judge,'
addressing the prisoner, said he hoped
that this would be a lesson to him in the
future, to lot all intoxicating drink se­
verely alone. While there might be noth­
ing intrinsically wrong in the moderate
use of liquor, when a man found that he
could "t use it without its gaining con­
trol of him and taking away his reason,
he had better stop right there. He hoped
that this would,bea warning to him, as
he naa a Very narrow escape from
committing a serious crime, while carry­
ing this weapon under the influence of
liquor. However, as he had pleaded
guilty, and taking into consideration the
fact that he had already been a month
or more in prison, sentence would be
suspended, and he would be set at lib
erty.
The two young men charged with
breaking seals on a Northern Pacific
railroad car were then brought into
court and the state of the case explained
by the county attorney. He told the
court that he had examined the evidence
given at the preliminary examination
before the justice and in his opinion it
was very doubtful whether a grand jury
would indict the prisoners or whether a
petit jary would convict them. It would
be nearly 7 months before we had an­
other term of court, and it would not
seem right for the prisoners to be kept in
jail for that length of time without trial
at the expense of the county. He there­
fore asked the court to release the pris­
oners upon their giving bonds to appear
at the next term of court.
In answer to the court Wm. Wallace
said that he was 22 years of age his
parents formerly lived in St. Thomas,
Ont.,buthe believed they were now in
Cleveland Ohio, he was going along the
Northern Pacific looking for work when
he was arrested. Wm. Hopkins the other
prisoner said his parents were living 27
miles southwest of Mitchell, South Da­
kota, he was also looking for a job.
The judge said that taking the circum­
stances into consideration he would
make an order allowing the prisoners out
upon their own recognizances, and while
of course he did not know whether they
were innocent or guilty he hoped that
this would be a warning to them never
to allow themselves to be tempted to do
anything which was wrong or dishonest.
Good Luck.
News came by mail last Saturday that
a ticket held at the Hardy post ofliceinthe
February drawing of the Louisiana State
Lottery had drawn five thousand dollars
but until Monday no one appeared hold­
ing the ticket, and it was about conclud­
ed that some transient person had pur­
chased it. Miss Tressie Webster came
over to town Monday morning and when
told of the fact stated that her father
held fifteen tickets in the drawing and
she thought one of them was close to the
number that drew the money but did not
remember the exact number of his tickets.
She took the number, it being 64,109,
down on a slip of paper and upon com­
parison at home found they held the
lucky ticket which drew one twentieth
of the hundred thousand dollars. Mr.
Webster s®on came to town and exhibit­
ed the lucky ticket to his friend and
placed it in the Hardy bank for eollec
tion. He is one of the pioneers of Jack­
son township, Jewell Co., Kansas, eight
miles south of townhaving homesteadhis
present farm in 1873, and is a hard-work­
ing. industrious citizen, who will appre­
ciate this luck. He says he began buying
tickets about three years ago and at the
time of purchasing these fifteen tickets
had drawn five dollars more than he had
invested. The Herald, with his many
friends, congratulate him on his good
fortune and are glad to know that the
money falls into good hands and will not
cause extravagance and trouble to follow.
Hardy (Neb.) Heiald, Feb. 22.
Major Edwards ou Dakota Climate.
While in St. Paul last week Major
Edwards caught a Daily-News reporter
and worked the young man for the fol-,
lowing breezy interview:
"Major Edwards, the jovial pilot of
The Fargo Argus, was voluminously ap­
parent in various parte of the city this
morning and his genial exterior had the
effect of coaxing the sun into view. When
cornered in the Omaha general office he
reiterated his oft-repeated statement
that he knew nothing whatever of politics.
"I am a seeker after transportation—not
truth," he remarked. "Where am I going?
To Coloraro and Nevada, and my mission
is a purely business one. I have sonae_
mining property out there and there is
a fellow who thinks he wants it more
than I think I want it. If he is of the
same opinion when I reach him he'll get
it. In my younger days I was given
some good advice relative to mining in­
vestments—to always sell and never buy'
—and I think it hits the nail on the head.?
I wouldn't settle in either of those states
for money, for Dakota, my boy, is God's"
country." "How are things coming up
there, Major? "They are coming our way
and we shall lasso every blessed one of
them. Dakota is a great place. No
country on the globe is to have so many
elections in so short a time. Every town
has a boom. And the weather? Oh, my
boy, you should spend a few days in that
equatorial region where the roses' bloom
at any and all times and the silver-tliroatr
ed nightingale gets in his work on the
ethereal circumambient. While the
effete east is wearing an overcoat a muf­
fler-and galoshes, Dakota has "on her.
lawn dress, her lisle thread hose, her
summer slippers and her straw hat, with
knots of wild flowers in her corsage, ati
her belt and in her odorous hair. The sun
is getting high—too high for comfort—
and people up there are getting so now
that during the meridian heat they take
a siesta in their hammocks under the
shady trees, while the hired girl plays
whist with the hired man on the back
porch. Corn is knee high ami wheat is
looming up like the legendary two dol­
lar fiddle, while the refreshing milk
shake, drawn from the finest Durham
cows which are kopt in ice houses for
that purpose, is interfering with the
digestion of all concerned. The con­
stitutional convention meets on the
Fourth and the nation's birthday will
usher in a new era. President Harrison
will issue his proclamation in October,
and then yoif can look at us as we soar!
into the atmosphere at a 2:40 gait. We'll
make the fur fly, and don't you permit
that fact to evade your retentive memor
Buy your corner lots right now or you
will be eternally left."
Imitation is Impossible.
It has been shown that in many cases
it is easy to successfully imitate.
Scarcely has a new invention been an­
nounced before a host of imitations
spring up on every side.
No higher encomium can be paid the
inventor or discoverer than to encounter
imitation, notwithstanding such flattery
is not acceptable.
la some cases successful imitation is
rendered impossible, inasmuch as the
imitator is unable to lend a complete
knowledge to the subject or has not the
means at hand to aid him.
Perhaps no article has been the object
of attempted imitation more than the
worldwide specific for the prevention and
cure of kidney and liver disorders, fami­
liarly known as Warner's Safe Cure.
In the preparation of this intensely
popular remedial agent, it is claimed that
it is impossible to successfully imitate
safe cure, even if the correct formula is
known, because the peculiar devices and
highly expensive mechanism used in its
manufacture are beyond the reach of the
would-be imitators.
Adding to this the lack of along experi­
ence, which has rendered perfect every
step in its preparation which inventive
genius can suggest, together with the
great skill exercised in the selection of
only the very best materials, the genuine
article is perfection itself.
Some effort it also being made to imi­
tate a popular line of old-fashioned log
cabin "home cure" known as "Warner's
Log Cabm" remedies, comprising a sar
saparilla for the blood, hops and buchu
for the stomach and system, cough
remedy for colds, rose cream for catarrh,
extract for relief from pain, hair tonic,
porous plasters and pills.
Successful imitation is rendered im­
possible for the rotu.on that the same
care has been given in the preparation.
An expensive laboratory, costing thou­
sands of dollars, has been especially con­
structed for their manufacture and is
under the immediate supervision of one
of the best chemists known.
Poor material and means employed
would be susceptible to easy imitation,
but with the best material, machinery
and skilled labor employed, these house­
hold articles are given to the public be­
yond the reach of all successful counter­
feiters.
"Among the Breakers."
The play "Among the Breakers" which
the Jamestown dramatic club has had in
rehearsal for the past two months, will
be presented next Tuesday evening at
the rink. This play is given under the
auspices of the Ladies Relief society as
a substitute for the annual charity ball
and the proceeds will be distributed
among the poor people of our city. The
tickets will be on sale in a few days, and
it is hoped our citizens will respond
liberally when called upon to buy.
Tickets will be fifty cents to all parts of
the house children twenty-five cents.

Earmers.

ment at Jamestown.

Twine Factories Wanted Dakota.
It is announced that several of the
large manufacturers of self binders will
sell an attachment this year for using
wire instead of twine for binding.
While this may be a good move as a
temporary expedient to keep the price of
twine from going to exorbitant limits, it
furnishes no guarantee that what has
happened this year may not occur again
next season. Wire was tried some years
ago, but has been driven out of use by
the twine binder for several reasons,
chief among which were the increased
cost and the difficulty of keeping the
wire out of the threshing machine.
Everyone agrees that something is
wrong with the present state of the twine
trade, but in order to find a remedy it is
'"necessary to seek for the cause of the
trouble. When the cause is removed the
^matter will right itself, but for the farm­
ers to work themselves into a rage over
a fancied monopoly or trust is not the
way to set it right. The cause of the
present high price of twine is that the
demand is greater than the supply and
therefore the price rises as naturally as
in the case of wheat under the same cir­
cumstances.
Ira Bursley, of New York, one of the
largest and oldest importers of manilla
and sisal hemp, when asked to what he
attributed the advanced price of these
,:fibers, said:
"The immediate cause of the in­
crease is the falling off in the re­
ceipts of sisal. The receipts of this fiber
:in
1880 were 80,000 bales of 400 pounds
reach, in 1881,136,000, and so on increas­
ing at the rate of 10 to 15 per cent yearly
Until 18S7, when the import was 216,000.
Of course, we assumed that the ratio of
increaso would.be maintained, but in­
stead of that the scale turned so that
last year we received only 210,000, and
this year there has been a further de­
crease down to the first of March of
29,000 bales as against 38,000 in the cor­
responding period ef last year. This
falling off in face of a growing demand
has naturally had the effect of raising
the price of the fiber, and it has also
affected the price of manilla."
The last number of the Farm Imple­
ment News gave a general statement and
summary for the years of importation,
stocks, prices, etc., of manilla and sisal.
On January 1,1886, manilla was 8 cents
per pound, and sisal was from 3 15-18 to
4 cents. Although/ manilla bad not
changed much during that year sisal had
nearly doubled, and both materials bad
climbed until they stood—manilla from
13% to 14 cents and sisal 10% to 11 cents
per pound. The hard fact is that one
portion of binder twiae material has
nearly doubled and the other nearly
trebled in cost during the last three years.
A few long-headed men last year took
the trouble to find out that the supply
of
manilla
WEEKLY ALEKT.
and sisal fiber would be short
thin year, and acting on that information
they bought up all they could get. They
nlan bought up as much as possible of
the twine left over from last year's har­
vest, which they have since held, and
this has aided them te control the mar­
ket and demand a higher price in return
lor their foresight and business sagacity.
The question now is for the farmer:
"What are you going to do about it?"
The whole of our supply of manilla
and sisal fiber is produced abroad, and
there does not seem to be any prospect
of that Supply largely increasing. There­
fore the price of this fiber may be ex­
pected to advance rather than decrease.
But the remedy lies at our own doors, if
we will only use it. There is flax straw
enough going to waste in Dakota every
year to bind every bushel of wheat grown
here. It is true that it is now too late to
do anything in time for this year's crop,
bnt no time should be lost in making ar­
rangements to have Dakota grown twine
on the market in time for next season's
crop. Instead of paying out our money
to the East Indies or Central America,
let us keep it at home and utilize the
raw material now going to waste in every
county in Dakota.
North Dakota needs a flax twine fac­
tory right away, and Jamestown is the
place to locate it.
The Day is at Hand.
This is the day set for the meeting be­
tween Archbishop Ireland and Bishop
Marty at which the present vicar­
iate of Dakota is to be divid­
ed into two Episcopal sees and
the new bishop for North Dakota
nominated. The arrangement of the de­
tails by which the present vicariate will
develop into two fully organized and
canonically erected dioceses will include
the selection of the See city for the
northern division. This is a matter in
which every citizen of Jamestown is
interested. A strong effort has been
made to have Jamestown chosen and the
result of the meeting will be awaited
with general interest, jiiev. Father Cas
sidy of this city, loft yesterday for St.
Paul and expects to be present at the
meeting.
There is a possibility that the selection
of the See city may not be made today.
amestown has as much cause to hope
that this city will be chosen as any of
the cities that are candidates for the
plum.
Episcopal Easter Service.
A very pleasant entertainment was
provided at the Episcopal church on
Sunday evening by the Sunday school
scholars the account of which was receiv­
ed too late for publication in Monday's
Alert. There was quite a fair number of
persons present and the readings and
recitations were rendered in good style.
Altogether it was one of the best Easter
festivals that has been given in this
church since its organization.
The service began with the beautiful
hymn, "Onward, Christian Soldiers," fol­
lowed by the special Easter service for
the Sunday school. The scholars then
sang "He is Risen." The lesson of the
day was read by Rosa Bassett and a reci­
tation "Easter Morning" was nicely ren­
dered by Hattie Bill. Katie Tilden read
"The Walk to Emmaus" in good style
followed by the hymn "Sing my soul his
Wondrous love" by the congregation.
The Superintendent George Brewitt,
then gave a short and well considered
Easter address to the scholars after which
the Easter eggs and cards were distribut­
ed to the children, who seemed as de­
lighted in receiving these little gifts as
the teachers were in giving them. After
the singing of the closing hymn, "Jesus
Christ is Risen" by the scholars they were
dismissed with the benediction.
Lfikes the Institution.
Editorial correspondence Saturday's
Pioneer Press: There is one public insti­
tution in North Dakota, or all Dakota for
that matter, that offers a surprise to
home visitors as well as strangers. It is
the Jamestown insane asylum. Although
the buildings, arranged upon the cottage
plan, cost less than 8300,000, they look
as if they might have cost a million.
The equipment in every detail seems to
be perfect and the discipline and order
are simply above criticism. It looks as
if the laet legislature figured too closely,
but the Mellette board, that met at
Jamestown this week, directed the su­
perintendent to cut down the pay roll to
81,080 a month, being within the appro­
priation allowed by the legislature for
employes' salaries. If the asylum is suc­
cessfully managed upon that basis it will
be a monthly saving of over $400. It is
understood that the new board is unani­
mous in the matter of limiting expendi­
tures to what has been appropriated for
each fund and in redeeming the institu­
tion from the charge of extravagance
There will be no deficiencies to report to
the next legislature.

Dakota Will Get Some Herself.
Aberdeen Republican: Hon. F. H.
Hagerty, commissioner on immigration,
has decided to send a lot of printed mat­
ter, describing tho attractions of Dakota,
to Oklahoma, where there soon will be
thousands of disappointed homeseekers,
who may be introduced to turn their
steps towards this better land. W. F.
Elrod, of Clark, who has a host of friends
and acquaintances in Aberdeen, has been
appointed envoy extraordinary to the
land of boomers, and will go some time
in May, after the first excitement is over.
Mr. Elrod is well qualified in every way
for the mission and will make it pro­
ductive of good results.
S. O. V. Encampment.
The annual encampment of the Dak­
ota division of the Sons of Veterans will
be held in this city commencing May 14,
and continuing three days.
A committee from the local camp is
now at work arranging for the entertain­
ment of the visitors, who, it is expected,
will be here to the number of loO. Last
week a subscription paper was circulated
among the merchants and enough monev
was pledged to insure proper care of the
visitors. It has been determined to give
a ball one night and a banquet the next.
An Interview Repudiated.
Last week Col. W. E. Dodge, of Fargo,
was in St. Paul, and in Saturday's Pion­
eer Press there appeared an alleged in­
terview with him, which has caused a
stir in various quarters. In this inter­
view the colonel was made to criticize
Gov. Mellette and say some rather
"sassy" things about Dakota politics in
general. Yesterday an Argus man found

?!*"•&
"v
Mr. Dodge, who made the following
statement:
The alleged sensational interview be­
tween the "Jamestown lawyer" and The
Pioneer Press, reported in the Dakota
edition, was a base fabrication from be­
ginning to end. The persons referred to
are personal friends of mine, whom I
have neither reason nor inclination to
criticize, and I am sure that The Press
will correet tho error in the next terri­
torial issue.
TI:K KITOKIAJJ TIPS.
In sinking the artesian well at Moor
head they have discovered iron at a depth
of 1,330 feet.
The Lincoln county Farmers Alliance
proposes to get back at the twine trust
by not using any. They so resolved at
their last meeting.
Valley City Alliance: There is abso­
lutely no occupation but what danger
lurks in and about it. Only a few days
ago a Valley City lady bit her tongue so
badly, it swelled so largely that she
could hardly talk for two long days.
What was the occupation? Ob! yes she
was chewing gum.
Sioux Falls Press: Word was receiv­
ed from Chicago that the Sioux Falls
patent car coupler, which has been tried
in the Illinois Central's yards, gave un­
qualified satisfaction. To leave no test
untried, a train provided with these cou­
plers has been sent over the road, and
as it pulled out of the yards the brake
men who have witnessed the tests, cheer­
ed the train lustily. This appreciation
by practical men is a good criterion
as to the value of the invention. A
factory for manufacture of the coupling
in Sioux Falls is now practically assur­
ed.
Stories of the big prairie fire in South
Dakota are not yet all told. Alderman
Smith of Minneapolis says: Those who
witnessed the fire told me that the flames
jumped four and five rods, so that an or­
dinary fire protection was of no avail.
One man had a sick daughter in bed
when he saw the fire coming, and his wife
rushed into the barn to untie the horses
while be ran to save the girl, and he had
just carried her out on the plowed
ground when the fire sprang upon his
house, his wife barely escaping. The
horses were burned. I saw where 400
sheep had been burned in a heap.
Dr. Duncan, a well known Chicago
scientist, says that Dakota is "destined to
be a health resort. First, because of the
pure water to be found everywhere
second, because of the invigorating cli­
mate and cool nights in summer third,
because of the dry, cool breezes during
the day and evening, fourth, because of
the absence of low marshes and other
malaria creating substances. The learn­
ed doctor closed a valuable discourse on
the health and climate of Dakota with
this sentence: "Dakota can invite the
dyspeptic, hollow-chested young men
from the east and expand and develop
them into vigorous manhood."
The special committee of the Minne­
sota legislature to investigate the binding
twine trust reported that it found the
trust to exist that 1,560,000 pounds of
twine had been left over from last year's
business at Minneapolis and that all of it
had been purchased by a firm at Eliza­
beth, N. J. It was purchased by this 6rm
in December last at from 12% to 12^ cts.
per pound, the total outlay being about
8200,000 that importers and manufact­
urers of twine and farming machinery
have taken advantage of the alleged
shortage in materials of which twine is
