The game was interrupted by rain, which made the latter part of the game rather ''rocky." The teams in the innings following the rain made 12 and 11 respectively, being more tal lies than either side made in any two in nings of the game.

Miss Etta Cumber and Miss Ella Dellair visited friends in Jamestown last week. The Fourth is to be very quiet here. Most of those who celebrate will go to Sharlow.

It has recently been rumored that "Johnny" refused to bring a lady from town last Saturday, because he was going to see a match game of base ball, and arriving on the grounds, found the game transferred to other grounds, and "Johnny" cams home a sadder, mad der and a wiser man. The match game of ball played be tween the Beavers and the Prairie Dogs resulted in a victory for the latter, the score standing at 25 to 31. They will play anothar game nest Saturday, at Melvin's place. A lawre crowd of spectators are expected, as it will be the most exciting and important game of the season. The Beavers are busy practicing for their match game against the Mount Pleasant boys on the Fourth of July. Mima Louisa Brastrup, of Jamestown, is visiting Mrs. Sabin. Miss. Brastrup has many friends who are glad to wel come her here. Corinne Outlines. It is reported that the barn of Col Baker in Barnes county, was struck by lightning and three liorsete burned, one colt escaping. He was away at the time, only his mother being at home.

Everybody is going to celebrate the Fourth in the Ii. M. Winslow grove, sit uated on the beautiful James River six miles north of Jamestown, where there is to be a basket picnic and a platform dance in the evening, and several other amusements too numerous to mention. The grounds are now being prepared by a large force of men under the supervis ion of H. Isaacson. As Mr. A. is one of Dakota's rustlers, it is needless to say he will have everything as represented, ae he is sparing neither time or labor in securing the best of music. Everyone cordially invited, Come one! Come all! but don't forget the basket. Cot'iune Cullings. The day we celebrate—the day it rain ed. The Sunday school hold their picnic at Spiritwood Lake on the Fourth. Mr. Milne had a moving bee Saturday, carrying his house over to where he has finally succeeded in striking good water. Grain is very uneven, there being a few fields that are good, a great deal that is poor, and some that in all probability will not be harvested. There was a veritable downpour Satur day afternoon such as we have not had this season, the thirsty earth drinking it quickly in. All nature rejoiced, and es pecially ye housewife, as barrels, tubs, pails, pots and pans were filled and over flowed. Soft water is dearer to the gent ler sex than the wheat crop. John Waugh and a few guests cele brate the 4th of glorious memory in a novel way. They take a camping trip to Devils Lake in one of the old Concord stages of ante-railroad days, and Ben Holliday's time will probably be nowhere beside the tally-ho. They will take in the fort and the Indians whether the Indians will take them in remains to be seen. Beaver Bits. Mr. W. B. 8. Trimble and Mr. Hitch cock are out looking up their interests in the country. It is not known yet1"'" who is director in sub-district No. 2. Mr. A.

It is reported that two of our neigh bors while on their way home from town the other evening had their buggy upset in the middle of the road. Wonder lnw they account for it, can you give us any light on the subject, Johnnie? The base ball game between the Bea vers and the Eldridge nine, which took place at Eldridge on the 22nd. resulted in a victory for the boys of that promis ing burg, the score standing 26 to 19. The nlaying on the whole was rocky on both* sides but Mr. Pannell's catching was admired by all, and especially so, by the ladies present. The fielding of Dun lap was also a marked feature of the game. The Eldridge boys must think that the Beavers are good ball players because whenever we play a friendly game they get some of the Jimtown boys to help them beat us and when they want to do up some other club they have to get four or five of the Beavers' best players to help them do it. Of course Eldridge gets all the credit. Niur Too Late to be Happy. NEW YORK, July S.—Henri Bluet, 76 years old, and Virginia Dupont, 75 years old, were married Monday by Rev. E. A. Blake, of Brooklyn. Both were born in Paris. They met in Trenton ten years ago and have been courting each other ever since. Virginia had a little money saved and so bad Blust.

BKRLIN, July 3.—The Magdeburger Zeitung says that at a recent dinner party at Stuttgart at which were a num ber of Russian army officers and some Germans, the Russians refused to drink a toast to the German empire, and when reproved for their discourtesy left the table.

Another "Removal" Case Which Promises Sensational De velopments. Dr. Mclnerney, Apparently Sus pected by the Clan-na-Gael Caused to Disappear. Other Removals Made Plain by Recent Developments All Clan-na-Gael Work. NEW YORK, July 3.—The Herald pub lishes a story about the mysterious dis appearance of Dr. Mclnernv, and has interviews with numerous friends and acquaintances of the doctor, the result of which, The Herald seems to believe, justifies the suspicion that the doctor has been murdered. His removal is believed to have been caused by a telegram call ing him West, either to Chicago or Omaha, in one of which cities he was silenced forever. And Still Another. CHICAGO. July 3.—The Times says: Dr. O'Cleary, of the town of Lake, is one of the many men whom the anti-triangle wing of the Clan-na-Gael believe have been silenced forever by the murderous conspirators of the Sullivan-Boland Feelv section. O'Cleary disappeared about twelve taonths age. To his friends his absence was unaccountable and but fe*.v even of the (Jronin faction of the Clan-na-tiael suspected foul play. Among these were J. D. Haggerty, to whom Alexander and all the efforts of his friends to lo cate him ever since have been fruitless. The murder of Cronin, the first victim whose body has been found, only served to raise to "the dignity of a conviction what had hitherto been a mere doubt or a suspicion. Enemies of the triangle have "disappeared all over the country, the disappearance immediately preceding that of Cronin being O'Cleary and the one before that again being a New Or leans man whose name is not known outside some members of the inner circle on both sides. Corroboration of the Story, OMAHA, July 3.—Referring to a New York dispatch in which it was intimated that Dr. Mclnerney, a secret agent of the Clan-na-Ga«l, had been lured west from Brooklyn by a telegram and then murdered either in Chicago or Omaha, Thomas Brennan of this city, ex-secre tarv of the Land League, said that he hart not met Mclnerney mora than once, and that was eight years ago.' So far as he knew no telegram of the kind men tioned had been sent from Omaha. Another gentleman, who requested that his name should be suppressed, said that he had known Mclnerney from boy hood. He had heard several weeks ago of the doctor's disappearance. The an nouncement was conveyed to him through a letter from a friend in New York. As to whether a telegram of the kind mentioned had been sent from Omaha the informant could not say. Chicago Police Discredit It. CHICAGO, July 3.—The Chicago police are not encouraged over the prospect that they will have to take in hand an other great "removal" mystery. Chief Hubbard said: "Of course we are bound to look into the Mclnerney story, but so far we have nothing that would lead us to believe that the man was killed here. We have carefully ex amined the Nixon cottage and there is not a single thing to show that any mur der was ever committed there. That is as far as we have gone in the case so far, but I guesft we can find the Murphys if we want them." State's Attorney I-ougenecker and Chief Hubbard held a consultation and talked about the Mclnerney story. The thing is generally looked upon as a "fake" in police circles, at least that part of the storv which brings in Chicago as the place of Dr. Mclnerney's supposed murder. Knnze In Umbo. CHICAGO, Julv 8.—The police have ad mitted that John Kunze is under arrest. He was captured in a South side grocery store, where he was working under the rfiamt of John Reiser. It is further stated that Kunze is the important witness whose testimony be fore the grand jury Saturday hastened the indictment and final report. It is understood that Kunze has told the po lice all that he knows about the affair. Children Sullivan had once said that Cronin ought to be removed, and Col. Richard O'S. Burke. In 1885 O'C'.earv. then high in the con fidence "of the executive, was dispatched to Europe on active service. During his ahstnee it was given out by tlie-triang lers that O'Cleary was in California, the fact being that he was in Amsterdam, from which point he conducted his "operations." O'Cleary returned from his last trip about eighteen months ago, and is said to have been at that time in a state, of absolute poverty. All his funds were exhausted and he is repre sented having been in a most deplorable condition. He made application for funds to the executive, but no attention was paid to him. O'Cleary became de nunciatory and raised quite a row in the organization over his treatment. Six Months l.ater He Disappeared For PITCHER'S A Practically Perfect Preparation for Children's Complaints. AFFAIRS IN EUROPE. A Gigantic Strike Averted—Attempt* ta Expel ex-King Milan—The Franco-Ser vian Dispute. LONDON, July 3.—The labor troubles in South Staffordshire mines which have for some time thieatened to end in a strike involving over 20,000 miners, have been amicably settled. The men have accepted a 5 per cent advance in their wages and the masters promise a further advance of 5 per cent Oct. 1. News comes from Belgrade that M. Pachitcb. the radical leader, will in the coming session of the Skuptcliina intro duce a motion for the permanent expul sion of King Milan from Servia. The Servian finance minister has ne gotiated a loan of 0,000.000 francs with oreign bankers, to pay the French com pany whose railway in Servia the gov ernment recently confiscated for their rolling stock. The officials of the com pany, however, positively assert that they will accept no such settlement and the French government is bringing strong pressure to bear upon Servia to restore the line intact to the company. The Fortnightly Review gives a large share of its space to the question of the extension of the parliamentary fran chise to women, a bill for which pur pose is now before parliament. Some of the opponents of the measure having taken the ground that the women of England were generally opposed to this proposed innovation, The Fortnightly some time ago solicited signatures to a memorial in favor of the bill* Nearly 200,000 women have in tins way signified Vieir own desire to vote. The Parnell Investigation. LONDON, July 8. —At the session of the Parnell commission Michael Davitt was placed on the witness stand. Mr. Davitt denied that the account given by Le Caron, The Times witness, that John Devoy's proposals were submitted to Mr. Parnell, was true. Mr. Parnell, he said, had nothing to do with his (Davitt's) vifit to America in 1878. It was the witness' intention to revisit America to lecture and to raise money for the agra rian movement in Ireland. What The Tillies Has to Flglit. LONDON, July 3. —The Parnell indem nity fund started by the Freeman's Jour nal to defray the heavy expenses of the Irish party before the special commis sion, now amounts to over £40,000. The The Irish National League of New South Wales, has just sent £1,000 as a first in stalment to this fund, and has added £500 for the evicted tenants' fund. Only £20,000 pounds of the money has been expended thus far. Six Thousand Workmen Strike. VIENNA, July 3.—Six thousand work men have struck at Brunn including all the bakers in the city. A detachment of military has been there. There has been no rioting as yet. Later advices from Brunn state that the number of strikers is15.000. They demand an increase of 30 per cent in their wages. Coronation of Young Alexander. BELGRADE, July 3.—The Russian min ister to Servia M. Persiana, upon the in structions of the czar, will be present at the coronation of young Alexander as king. The czar has sent the young king an autograph letter and the decoration of the Grand Cross of St. Anne. TAYLOR'S GREAT LUCK. The Wisconsin Politician to Be United States KaiUtoad Commissioner. WASHINGTON. July 3.—It is announced on authority second only to the best that Hon. H. A. Taylor, of Hudson, Wis., will succeed Gen. Joseph E. Johns ton as United States railroad commis sioner. The place is a very comfortable one, with a fat salary and lean duties. The Wisconsin congressmen, who are energetic fellows and always pull to gether, have been moving the universe to get this appointment for a week past. It was hard to get because there were many candidates and Johnston has many friends. It is a great catch for Taylor, who i3 a countrv editor, but an active and experienced politician. He has been ohairman and secretarv of the Republican state committee in Wiscon sin, and was occasionally an aspirant for governor. He is a personal friend of Spooner and is well known and has been useful to all the Wisconsin members. NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION. Land Office at Fargo, Dak., June27, i$W.
