The managers of the free reading room take this method of informing the public that through the courtesy and good will of Hon. Lyman R. Casey some sixteen volumes of public documents have been put upon the shelves of the library. Also that the Daily Congressional Rec ord is on file, thanks to the same friend. One volume of especial interest is the report of the cruise of the revenue steamer Corwin in the Arctic ocean. A. M. Clough opened the Sixth avenue water main in front of D. E. Hughes' residence yesterday. He found the water in the main froze up, but for how L'reat a distance, of course, he could not tell. He thinks, however, that it may be up to the M. E. parsonage. The water in the pipe was frozen in a sort of honeycomb form—not solid. At the place opened the pipe was not bursted and it is to be hoped that it has not been at any other place. The big shipment of farm machinery, of which The Alert made mention yes terday, went through Jamestown about 10:30 this morning. It consisted of a special train of about twenty cars came from Massillon, Ohio and is consigned to Russell & Co., Portland. Banners on the side of the cars, informed the public where the machinery was manufactured and its destination. The value of the shipment is 370,000. The tram is attract ing considerable attention as it goes through the Northern Pacific country. J. E. Bellivou who recently returned from a coast trip, says Charley Manley, who formerly conducted a cigar manu factory and retail and wholesale cigar bnsiness here, is now located at Tacoma and doing a big business. He is the proprietor of a cigar manufactory em ploying thirty-eight hands, and runs two retail stores, carrying a stock of 815,000. Henry Denison, Isiah Windover and Clare Stetson, all Jamestown people, are out there with him. He says further that Dan Thompson, the Northern Pa cific engineer, who recently went to Ta coma, has made some good investments in real estate in that booming town. The Fargo people are going to make the Firemen's tournament of this year even more of a success than that of List year. It is probable that Senators Casey and Pierce and Congressman Hans brough will unite in offering some prize. A drawing attraction will be furnished by Col. Davis of Mandan, who has consented to place two car loads of mounted animals on exhibtion during the tournament. Among them is a fine pair of elk, which he proposes to drive in tlio street parade. They are well trained to harness, aro fast trotters and will be one of the great attractions of the parade. The colonel will probably, also give an exhibition of the speed of his hornod roadsters, if a suitable track can be found for the purpose. Wall paper, paints and kalsomine at Baldwin Smith's.

They will prob ably leave some time next week. Hon. Duncan McDonald and Sheriff John Simons of Valley City, came in ou the noon train today. They will return this afternoon and take in the Odd Fel lows celebration, which will occur this evening. Mr. Simons came up to sell some laud under decree of court. Both gentlemen made a pleasant call at The Alert office. Mr. Simons says he has not left Valley City. He is still sheriff of Barnes county and a resident of Valley City. The report that he had removed grew out of his investments at West Superior, which, by the way, are said to be very fortunate ones. Quite a large delegation of Jamestown Odd Fellows went down to Valley City on tho accommodation this morning to at tend the celebration of the seventy-first anniversary of American Odd Fellowship. A large attendance and a big time is ex pected. Fargo and the Red river valley are expected to send large delegations. Preparations have been made to enter tain one hundred and fifty visitor?.

Hanlev who wants §15,000 damages occupied all day Wed nesday. When court adjourned the jury had not reached a verdict. The case now on trial is that of A.D.Binghani,who brings suit for damages for personal injuries received by coming in contact with a telegraph pole near Windsor station on the night of the 9th of Februarv, 1880, while engaged as brakeman on a freight train.

He was excused from further attendance as a juror at the present term of the United States court at Bismarck. Foster County Independent: Frank Beals, the jolly traveling man, was in town Monday. He said he was going to get married in a few days, but asked us to say nothing about it, so we wont. The Jamestown people who attended the Odd Fellows celebration at Valley City returned this morning. They re port a pleasant time and a large attend ance. It was the verdict of all that Valley City people are great entertainers. The Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational congregations will again unite in union meetings tomorrow. Additional seating capacity has been pro vided in the old First National bank building, where the meetings will be held. The room has been crowded at the night meetings all through the week Jamestown will be represented at the Firemen's tournament again this year. The Rescue hook and ladder company want to go and are now endeavoring to get a good running team together. There will be a band contest and Manager Lie ber will probably take his young men down and try tu prize. bring home another Mrs. O. H. Hewit and the two younger children left yesterday afternoon tor Duluth. A large number of Mrs. Hewit's lady friends were at the depot to bid her good-bye. Mr. Hewit and the eldest child will remain here until next week. Mr. Ilewit's law books were packed for shipment today and he is arranging his business affairs preparatory to his re moval to Dululh. Readers of The Alert will do well to watch its advertising columns closely. You will save money by so doing. The merchant who has something to sell and wants to sell it before it becomes shelf worn, tells the people about it through Tho Alort and if he has any special bar gains it is through the same medium that ho makes the announcement to the public. In these times, the economist will save money by taking the home paper and reading it carefully, ads and all. The Northern Pacific will spend about 810,000 in repairing and improving their water supply at Valley City. A new engine and boiler will be placed in tho pump house and anew tank will be built in a position so that passenger trains will not have to make two stops as at present. Tho Farmers Alliance says re garding other improvements: "The work train and crew of this division has been ordered here next Monday to begin work in the cuts west of town, where it is thought they will be engaged for about three months." This is the right season of the year to 6et. out trees, and Tho Alert is glad to note that a number of citizeus aro doing so. The first objection a stranger makes to Dakota is that it has no trees, The old idea that trees will not grow here was long ago exploded, yet, there are so few in the city that one could hardly be blamod for assuming that there must bo some good reason for their scarcity. A row of tine trees will do much to beau tify and increase the value of a residence and there ought to be more of them. Down on Sixth avenue Dan Hughes, Al derman Hotchkiss and A. M. Clough have been making improvements in this direction lately. A nice little fight over the postmaster ship is said to be in progress at Valley City. Hon. Duncan McDonald, Capt. Weiser, and half a dozen other citizens, less widely known than they, are can didates. Mr. McDonald ought to have the inside track. He was a member of the last legislature, helped to elect both senators and was one of the first to an nounce himself for Senator Casey. Mr. McDonald is an old timer, a good sub ptantial citizen, and has many friends in •I nmestown who would be pleased to see him successful. He is deservedly popu lar both at home and abroad. If the office were elective instead of appointive, '•Mac," would undoubtedly get it. From Monday's Dailv. Windy again today. Joe D. Mills is in the city again. J. F. Crum was in Bismarck Saturday. C. R. Meredith of Casselton was in the city today. Bishop Shanley has gone to Chicago. He expects to be in Grand Forks next Sunday. Rev. Father Cassidy conducted religi ous services at New Rockford. Thursday, according to the Transcript. Judge Rose has greatly improved the appearance of his residence by setting out several rows of trees around it. Harry Helm of Valley City, who will succed E. J. White as manager of the Russell, Miller Milling Co.'s Jamestown mill, is in the city today. Hon. H. B. Viall of Keene, New Hainp shire, arrived this morning and wilj spend a few days in the city. Mr. Viall is a brother of Mrs. E. D. Strong. Prof. A. J. F. Voigt, who for two years has taught the high school in this city, and who has had sixteen years experi ence in teaching, is soon to engage in a business enterprise in this city. Henry Stuff, one of the prosperous farmers in the vicinity of Bloom, was in today, enlightening his friends on the subject of that bright girl baby who re cently appeared at his home. Ground was broken this morning for an addition to Bishop Shanley's resi dence. The dimensions of the proposed addition are 27x35, two stories high. H. C. Hotchkiss has the contract. A fire alarm last evening brought tho fire department and a big crowd of peo ple to the Fourth ward, where an out house on the premises of J. A. Davison was ablaze. The fire is supposed to have originated from a bonfire, which was burning in the afternoon. No great damage was done, although the cry of fire in front of the First National bank building, where the union meetings are being held, nearly resulted in a panic. Editor Stone, of the Hunter Eye, who visited Jamestown with the Casselton Dramatic club, has this to say in his pa paper: "The people of Jamestown—and especially the young folks—are "right in line'" when it comes to entertaining visitors, as the Casselton Dramatic club and the writer of this paragraph know from experience." And in another place the following: "It was the good fortune of the editor of the Eye, while in James town last week, to visit the North Da kota hospital for the insane, which is be yond a doubt a model institution of its kind under the able management of Dr. Archibald and his assistants. It is cer tainly an institution that the people of North Dakota may point to with pride, and the manner in which it is kept re flects great credit upon thQ genial doctor and his estimable wife, who we are ed to learn have been reappointed as superintendent and matron respectively by the new board. C. W. Thompson of Bismarck, was in the city Saturday, and while here com pleted arrangements for opening a coal yard where lignite coal, taken from the Sims mine, will be sold at 83.50 a ton. The name of the firm is tlie North Da kota Coal company, and its office on the corner of Sixth avenue and Front street. August Shaffer of Bismarck, has charge of the yard. Mr. Thompson is one of the principal owners of the Sims mine. He will open yards at several points in the Jamee river valley, where lignite coal can be obtained at a low figure, and thus hopes to create a demand for our cheap native fuel. Mr. Thompson was in St. Paul at the recent conference of the rail road commissioners with tho railroad companies in regard to coal rates. He says the companies consider the maxi mum coal transportation bill passed by tho legislature unconstitutional. He says the railroads will lower their present rates—but not, however, to the point fixed in tho law referred to. As will bo seen by reference to tho pro ceedings of a special meeting of tho board of education in another column, the corps of teachers for tho public schools for tho next year has been elect ed. Prof. G. S. Fisher, of Deadwood, South Dukota, will be Superintendent Denuy's successor and Miss Lizzie Sulli van, of Stillwater, will take the place of Prof. Voigt. Prof. Fisher lias beon principal of the Dead wood schools arid cotpes highly recommended as a success ful teacher. Ho has been engaged for twelve months at a salary of 81,250. Last year the salary was 8100 higher for ten months services. Under the new ar rangement the superintendent will be re quired to remain here the whole year and be ready to give his advice and counsel to the school board at all times. Prof. Fisher's family consists of his wife and one child. Miss Sullivan is now principal of the Stillwater. Minnesota, schools. She is a teacher of unusual ability and great things are expected of her. The board has tried to secure her services in the past but the sdary inducements were never satisfactory to her. The other new teachers elected are Misses JunaEddy, Grace Vincent and Cornellie Smith. Owing to previous engagements, Miss Miller and Miss Atkinson, it is under stood, did not desire to be re-elected. Flax seed for sale. Inquire at Lloyds bank. ESTISAVED—One chestnut sorrel mare, weight about 1,200 pounds, left hind leg swollen at ankle. GEO. H. Johnny Clark, a former Northern Pa cific passenger conductor and one of the most popular men ever on the division, is again circulating around town and greeting friends. He is now in the in surance business, representing the Rail way Officers & Conductors Accident and Life Insurance company of Indianapolis. This is one of the best companies in the country and Johnnv is "writing up" a good many of the boys. A couple of railroad men were quito seversly hurt this noon. A gam? of Frank Ingall's carpenters were working at the round house and started to come up town on two hand cars, running close together at a pretty good pace. The first car jumped the track, scattering the crew around, and tho next one came on and ran into the wreck. Two of the men, Traverse anc Knudson, sustained scalp wouuds and injuries on the extrem ities. Dr. Rankin looked after their in juries. Musician: '"The program last night seems to have been arranged for a fron tier audience and while the execution was perfect, the selections chosen did not bring out the full talents of the per formers, as classical music would have done. While the familiar airs were per haps more pleasing to the majority of the audience, yet the musicians of the city were somewhat disappointed that tho se lections rendered were of so unpreten tious a nature." It is said that the fast train which the Northern Pacific is soon to put on will reduce the time on each division about two hours, making again of 10 hours in the run to the coast, from St. Paul. In this connection the Philadelphia Rail road Record says: Tho Northern Pacific announces that it will bo in the lield the coming summer for transcontinental business, especially when it comes to passenger traffi'-. Already notice is given that commencing May 1st great improve ments will be made in the passenger service of the road. On that date a limited through train will be put on be tween St. Paul and the coast that will annihilate time and distance. The local service will also be improved by shorten ing the time and better equipping the trains. An opportunity to see and hear a great artist like Levy comes seldom in James town, but the people know how to improve the opportunity when it does come. The great cornetist and his sup port of musical stars were greeted last evening with a large audience made up of the culture and refinement of the city. That the audience was appreciative, the numerous encores conclusively showed. The Alert has no desire to, nor does it feel equal to the task of criticising the concert. The unmistakable approval of a critical audience is clear evidence that 1 PUKCHASE, Jamestown, N. D. From Tuesday's Dailv. C. E. Blackwell went north this morn ing. Wm. M. Lloyd went out to Cleveland this morning. Otto Gasal went out to his cattle ranch at Cleveland this morning. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Buchanan came down from Rio yesterday to attend the Levy concert. The wind is blowing agaiu today, but not strong enough to uncover or lift seed out of the ground. Rev. J. H. McFarland and wife arrived today from St. Thomas and will be the guest Rev. E. H. Teall for a few days. Farm machinery dealers say that trade in seeders, harrows and press drills was better this spring than for several years. Manager Lieber allows that Levy's technique as shown last night, would get him a place IU the Jamestown cornet band, were he out of a job. Martin Peterson, tho Spiritwood sec tion foreman who had his leg broken last October, was perambulating about the city today with the aid of crutches. The enjoyment of the audience and tho serenity of the performers at last night's concert were somewhat disturb ed by barking dogs on the floor and noisy kids in the gallery. A. R. Hathorn has sold his line I'ercb eron stallion to E. J. White.

Nierling has received from Sena tor Casey a numbei of packages of sugar beet seed and will be glad to distribute the same among the farmers of this county who are interested in this matter and willing to give the seed a trial. The seed was imported by the government. Each package contains printed directions, giving all necessary information about the time for planting and directions for cultivation. It would be well for some of our farmers to take hold of this mat ter anil experiment. It is generally be lieved that sugar beets can be raised here, but a few practical experiments demonstrating the fact beyond contro versy will have the right kind of an effect ou capitalists interested in the beet sugar industry.

The Capital bouse register yesterday showed thirty-two arrivals, a pretty con clusive indication that Landlord Ingra ham is doing a big business these days at his popular hostelry. It is a little tardy, but before it is too late, The Alert desires to express its in debtedness to Rev. Wm. Gibb f,r the ex cellent reports of the evangelical meet ings which were printed in The Alert last week. Rev. N. 8. Bradley is writing the admirable reports which are appear ing this week. R. D. McKay, who resides about nine miles south of the city, was brought in today to be examined by the commis sioners of insnnity. In a deleriuni of of some kind he attempted to commit suicide by slashing his neck and throat with a knife, but the cuts were not deep enough to result fatally. His neighbors decided he was a fit subject for the asy lum and brought him to town to have his sanity inquired into. In plowing his garden a few days since W. L. Hall discovered a couple of inter esting Indian relics. One is a toma hawk head and the other an old Indian scalping knife. Both are rusty and evidently of ancient make. Mr. Hall, who has been among or near Indians all his life and is pretty well up on Indian lore, thinks the scalping knife ie one such us the Hudson Bay company issued to the savages about the first of this century. It is of peculiar shape and ground ouly on one side of the blade. Mr. Hall gave his find to C. L. Judd, who, it is understood, has gathered quite an interesting and extensive collection of Indian relics. O. H. Hewit left yesterday for Duluth. His household effects and family had preceded him to the Zenith city, which will be his residence in the future. The business of White & Hewit's Duluth office has grown to such proportions that the whole time of both partners is necessary, hence his removal. Mr. Hewit is a good lawyer and a fearless and out spoken citizen who is generally found WW- o- CJonitntMvisil Travelers, Hardware, Implement, and Lumber Deal ers are Making tliis House Headquarters. W. J'. Buckley left this morning for Morris, Minnesota, to assume in connec tion with Sam Mathews, the manage ment of the big hotel which they have recently leased at that place. "Billy" has disposed of his business in James town, but will come back occasionally to see the boys. During a residence of about six years in Jamestown h" has formed many warm friendships, and there will be many who will re gret his departure. He is a young man of good business r.bility and energy to find scope for its exercise. The Alert is glad to know th.it the enterprise in which he and Mr. Mathews have associated themselves gives bright promise of finan cial success. As has been previously stated, there is a good opening at Morris for a first class hotel, and if Mathews & Buckley do not fill the "long felt want," the fault, will be elsewhere than with them. *T identified with moral movements. He has beon a resident of Jamestown for nearly ten years and leaves a personal and professional reputation behind him of which he can well be proud. Before leaving for Duluth, Mr. Hewit made an arrangement with E. YV. Camp, under which Mr. Camp will look after tho busi ness of White & Hewit at Jamestown, subject, of course. t,o the approval of the clients of White Hewit. The board of university and school lands has adopted a resolution fixing $•"» per quarter as the minimum rental for public school lands and also another em powering the auditor and county super intendent to authorize the subletting of such lands. This now resolution will apply to Stutsman county's sale the 15th of next month and is in effect a discrimi nation against our county in this, that Grand Forks bidders were permitted to lease a quarter section for a nickle, while an inhibition is now laid on which makes it impossible for Stutsman county bid ders to lease a quarter for §4.9i). The Alort is not kicking against tho resolu tion it believes that it is an imperative duty of the next legislature to fix a mini mum rental for these lands, which is tho effect of the resolution of the board. It believes that such a resolution should have been adopted prior to the sale of any lands aud merely calls attention to the local effect, of tho board's tardy action. Cycling lias beco.no a favorite mode of locomotion in pleasant weather. There are a number of goo wheel men in Jamestown and the sur rounding country who get as much use out of a bicycle as au ordinary man does out of a iiorso. E. F. Porter, of Mel ville, an expert wheelman, frequently makes the trip from Melvillo to James town and return on his safety bicycle. A few days ago he carao down that way and started up yesterday morning at 7:05 a. in. lesterday afternoon Frank Casey received a postal note from'him saying he reached home at 11:20 a. m.. thus making the trip of -10 miles in four hours and fifteen minutes. Tliis is remarkably good time, the best that has ever been made between here a no Melville. Tho circumstances, however, were favorable for fast time, the road being line and the wind at the rider's back. Mr. Casey has himself made the trip in five hours and a half without ,ch exertion. He states that the best previous time of Mr. Porter was five hours. Seed for Needy Farmers. Needy farmers should have seed from the fact that the support of the farmer depends largely on tho growth and de velopment of seeds. Let a farmer neg lect seeding and the result will be a seedy looking farmer. If any farmers in need of seeds will send in their applications to the undersigned, they will be provided with all kinds of garden seeds, tree seeds, millet.
