IV I* 66686«i tf. «j,!.'ti V'. iV wmi MONEY IN HIS POCKET. Another Farmer Bents the Ele vator Companies 1y Ship ping Hi* own Wheat. He Kealized Nine Cents per Ifii&hel Better Than the Elevator Offer and Now Proposes to Enlist Co-Oper ation of Neighbors and ISuild a Warehouse. Another instancecomes to hand of bow a farmor in tins county has saved good hard dollars by keeping his wheat out of the hands of the elevator mon. Henry Vessey had a oar load of wheat at the Eldridge side track not very long ago. Ha stato3 he was offered by the mill a price and a grade which ho did not con sider enough by any moans. Tha eleva tor at Eldridg9 would oiler but little bet ter, viz. No. 2 northern with pounds dockage per bushel. The elevator price made his wheat worth GO cents. Ho knew his grain was worth more, but what can a North Dakota farmer do to protect himself, confronted as he is ui this state by obstacles on every sido? The only thing 13 to got a car. either by favor or good luck, from the railroad company, and ship his grain to commission men. This was what Mr. Vessey was able to do and Monday whan ho received the returns from his venture, he was delighted to find that his wheat had boon graded No. 2 northern and sold for 00 cents a bushel, making it net him, with all expenses paid, 73 cents a bushel. He saved nearly 10 cents a bushel, money that he car use for his family and himself instead of giving it as tribute to tha elevator com panies whose nets aro spread in every direction for victims, like himself. Mr. Vessey is a hardworking firmer, an old timer who has taken the good, oad and indifferent in North Dakota, and is here trying to get ahead trying to con vince himself that that is the country to help develop and in which to raise his familv and spend the best portion of his life. Thousands of other farmer.* are similarly situated and few of them who have weathered iho storm of 'oad years will not bear witness to the fact that if they could get the full value of their farm produce year after year—the price tlieir wheat is worth—the assurance of their remaining would ha iuaeh stronger for them. If this had been the case din ing the last few years thousands who have left, rather than surrender the prof it of their hard labor to greedy corpora tions, would have been hero todav. ready to t?ko advantage of the good times when they come, instead of bein^ else where giving the country a black-uve on every occasion that presents itself. Mr. Vessev hopes to enlist the cooper ation of half a dozen of his neiiiibors next year and to build a warehouse ivhere each man can have a bin holding one or two thousand bushels and which urn be emptied into box cars alongside, wihout delay and with but a tritling experie for handling. The Northern Pacific rajlroad has declared its intention to itormit farmers to build such warehouses its ample right of way. It is hoped thft the plan may be a success. WHAT A GREAT MAN TH|VKS. A few Touches From Spurkliijg ln gcrsoll on Labor, Tariff aiidjl'en sisn Questions. Just before the recent election Cplonel Robert G. Ingersoll delivered thd first stump speech he has made for tenyears. Here are some of the things "Bobi said: I am in favor of anything that wi|l give something like liberty to the laljorors. They aro the only men that do anything. Labor supports everything. Labor pays all taxes labor snjports the government labor keeps the jag in the air, labor is all there is, and I sin for such an administration jf affairs that the laboring man shall have, if po.rible, the advantage over everybody ele. I would like to see it done. That all there is of tariff. I know it is go lg to open hundreds and hundreds of fac ories I know that this new tariff is go ig to give employment to hundreds and hou sands of people aad that means prior ity it means something to oat that means that when the mother rocl tho cradle she will sing and sing, at I she will drop no tears on the baby's fiu It means homes, good lires, roofs that lou't leak. That is all we have in the rorld anyhow. And the man who has ot a home, and employment at living'ages, and loved and loving oues aroun| him, is the peer of an emperor. He is. both monarch and subject—heir to every ad vantage of citizenship in a republit that protectants own workers in preferace to those of other countries. There is considerable said abou pen sion extravagance. Now I don't get pen But sion. I never wanted any pension 1 have often thought when I heart these old skintiinta talk about pensions what the American people would have id to the army on the third day at Getty burg. Would we not have said to the soldiers, "stand tirm? Drive thosi bfic't, and we will pour the trenBur nation at yonr feet." "Carry tb high. No matter how shot and sh etroy and tear, carry it high, and one of you, while you Jive, will want for the luxuries of life." w. poor hosts of a flag II de every never bis is what we would have said to them. What would we have said to Farragut and his men when ley passed Forts St. Phillips and Jackson, ahd the ohot and shell were going through their vessels' What would we have said? "Sail on! Don't wave a hair, and by the gods, you shall have ail we have got." I would have put down the last dollar, and so would every one of you. And then think of getting rich and forgetting it. The roar of the guna all out of your ears the enthusiasm all out of your blood no more throb in your hearts. And then say: "Well, I think »ve have given them too much." It is a disgrace to this nation if any man over dies by the wayside in hunger that ever fought for the honor and glory of this republic. I don't know much about the subject. I don't know how much we pay. But I have heard people say wo pay too much I don't think we pay enough.

The asylum trustees held their regular meeting yesterday, and did considerable business. There wore present President Buchanan and Messrs. Thompson, Hub bard and Porter. The artesian well was inspectod and is highly satisfactory. The water is of excellent quality for washing, for use in boilers, and for the various purposes of the institut ion. It is greatly preferred by many for drinking purposes. The quantity is 5 times more than the present necessities of the institution re quire, the How being about (J,000 barrels a day. The reports of Superintendent Archi bald and Steward Loveil were read and discussed by the board. Advance sheets of the reports will be forwarded to the governor, for his use in preparing his message to the legislature. It was ordered that 1,000 copies of the report be printed for use of the legislature. The report urges several needed improve ments, among them an icehouse, a barn, a tire outfit including hose and hose house, and recommendeds that $500 be appropriated for laying off grounds and sodding the same around tho buildings. Ttie sum of $l!](J,000 is asked for all pur poses for the two years. Tlie report of Engineer L'ottigrow shows t:la•• fully one third is being saved in the con! bills by use of the lignite fuel.

WATCHING HIS FIRST LOVE. Ex-Gov. Oidnay Keeps an Wye on North Dakota Politics and tlie Gen eral Fortunes ol" tho State. Ex-Governor Ordway has written a letter to a North Dakota friend, in which the political situation is vigorously re viewed. The governor is at preseut slowly regaining strength in the moun tains of New Hampshire. With return ing health the governor says he has re newed, somowhat, his early faith in human nature. He recalls the up build ing of the territory, the founding of the public institutions, the development of tho country, all of which he witnessed in person and speaks of the deep interest he still has in the progress of the state.Gov. Ordway says that he practically rocked the cradle of the young states of North aud South Dakota and heartily regrets that out of the vast expenditures of public money in every other section of the country North Dakota's admitted share for public buildings and irrigation has been withheld. The governor repeats his hope that the mute testimony of nearly all the public institutions in both Dakotas which were founded during his administration and thespleudid condition of the public credit when he retired from otlice will vindicate him from tho unjust assaults of aspiring and jealous enemies. An interesting paragraph of his letter says: "If my health will permit and my advice would have any weight, I would willingly put aside all former differences and unjust criticisms with which I have been assailed and counsel at Bismarck this winter with the people's represen tatives as to tho best means of restoring the credit of the state, relieving tho peo ple of public burdens and in securing long delayed justice from the general government through congress.

NORTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY DECEMBER 11 ld90 LEGAL MACHINERY MOVING. Tin Trial of Jury Cases Coin meutetl on the Opening Day. Fire Department 3Ioiie.v Case Now Heing Tried—Good man (rets Damages. The Ceremony of Blessing the St. .John's Aeadeiny Occurred Monday. Tho December term of the district court opened Monday morning. The cale dar is a slioit one and the term promises to bo tho same. There are but (.51 cases on the calendar and only 14 of them aro new causes. The grand jury is dispensed with, there not being enough criminal business in sight to warrant this ex pensive luxury. The preliminary call of tho calendar showed that it is burdened with considerable dead wood. Many of the cases have been referred and quite a number will bo dismissed. There are about a dozen jury cases and a number of important court cases. Among tho uew cases of public in terest is that of Geo. A. Bennett against the Northern Pacifie railroad company. This is a personal injury case in which action is brought for 82,000 damages. Fuo plaintiff is a railroad man, residing here, who was caught between the ears and smashed in making a coupling. An other ease is that of the old and new tiro companies for the £'500 of lire depart ment money which has been in contro versy for several years. The money is now in the hands of tho clerk of the court. This is a jury case which will probably bo tried tomorrow. The following is the petit jury as drawn. All answered to their names ex cept Mr. Kearney: James Fergus, Win. Derby. John Comber. Chas. Ellis. Richard Gainsforth, John B. Johnson, Alex Esler, Wm. T. Melvin, H. W. Cowau. Peter Garrigan. Jas. E. Herbert, Malcom Sinclair, John Heisiuger, E. BischoiV, Peter Fried, A. I. Warren, James Sharlow, T. C. Barrett, E. T. earnev, C. It. Flint, Martin Van Derheuval, M. J. Villers, J. II. Cooper, Joseph Feldhausen, T.J.Jones. John F. Vennum and M. J. Barrett wore appointed bailiffs. The petit jury was excused until af ternoon when it is expected that a jury case will be ready for trial. Business moved along so expeditiously at the opening of court Monday that the trial of jury cases was commenced in the afternoon. This is believed to be tho first instance in the history of the county where the trial of jury cases has been commenced on the opening day, and augurs well for the prompt dispatch of the business of the term, which, uuge Rose thinks, will probably continue through this week and next. At two o'ciock yesterday, the cas^ of David Goodman vs. M. H. Schmitz, et al was called, a jury empanelled and the trial of tho case proceeded with. L. T. Hamilton andE. W. Camp appear for the plaintiff and S. L. Glaspell for the de fendants. The case is one wherein the plaintiff sues for §1,500, damages because of tho alleged wrongful seizure by the sheriff of a quantity of goods belonging to what was known as the Cruui grocery stock, of which stock plaintiff had a bill of sale. S. S. Altschul as the party who swore out tho writ, and Sheriff Schmitz as tho officer executing it, are the de fendants in the action. At this morn ing's session the case was dismissed as to Altschul and is still proceeding this afternoon against Schmitz. The trial of the case of Goodman vs. Schmitz occupied ail of Tuesday at the district court. The case was given to the jury at live o'clock and court ad journed until this morning. The jury soon reached an agreement, finding for the plaintiff and against the defendant Schmitz, and fixing the damages at §100 \vith interest at 7 per cent, from June 10th. A sealed verdict to this effect, was returned and read at the opening of court Wednesday morning. The case of the state of North Dakota ex rel Geo. C. Eager et al vs City of Jamestown and A. M. llalstead et al, was called and the following jury em panelled: E. Bischoi!', Chas. Ellis, Geo. A. Case, Wm. Derby, Peter Fried, John Comber, James Fergus, M. Sinclair, M. VanDerheuvel, A. I. Warren. M. J. Villers. and Alex Esler. E. W. Camp and S. L. Glaspell for the plaintiff and Fredrus Baldwin for the defendant, aro the attorneys in the case. Tlie question at issue is the disposition of the 3500 of money donated to the Jamestown fire department by the territory, under an act of tho territorial legislature for the encouragement of volunteer tire depart ments in cities. Both the old company and the now one have claims on the money. After the jury was empaneled it was agreed to make the case a court case and the jury was accordingly discharged. There aro a number of intricate points involved in the case which is said to be one of the knottiest that has arisen here for some time. The case is still proceed ing this afternoon. Mrs. Klapp's Musicale. Mrs. F. Klapp gave her twelfth musi cale Friday night. The program was a luxuriant and varied selection from the works of the great musical laureates and was finely graded so as to bring out the capacity ot the pupils at their varied JAMESTOWN WEEKLY ALEET. w'i.u u» |,fc*. $2,°' ""ff -ft&MiaJt .ttM»liT:V..i3.aJWlU Btages of culture. Looked at by one who who would be apt to form an idea from the size of our city of the musical talon and training to be found in it, the pro gram would have been reckoned formid able. It was carried through, however, with a success that reflected great credit on both teacher and pupils. There aro few cities indeed, if any in North Dakota, that enjoy the musical advantages of Jamestown. This is the third year that Mrs. Klapp has been appointed vice president for North Dakota of the Ameri can national association for the promo tion of musical art. Tho instrumental selections were varied by two vocal solos. The lirst by Mrs. II Pierca entitled "Why Drop the Roses" was given with all her accustomed naturalness 'of manner and graceful movement. There is a delicacy of touch about her voice that can only be obtained from the patient study of musical elocu tion. Tlie other solo by Miss Lena Belli von, entitled the Waltz Song, was rendered also line style and gave lino scope to a soprano voice of rich quality and great, compass and which has been well trained to maintain a shrewd econo my over its resources.

After complimenting both mo and my opponent, he goes on to say that I had declared myself iu favor of piohibi tion and that. they, the "liberal element," had put lip Mr. Stariha in the eleventh hour and elected him with 31 plurality. Now I deny tho charge. I was not inter viewed by any one in regard to my views on prohibition. Mr. Haas, after having signed my call, came and asked tne how I felt towards the saloons. I told him I had nothing to say either for or against them as long as they confined themselves to law and order, but that I did serious ly object for them to get men drunk and then turn them out in the street to abuse and annoy those that were sober. Those were my views before election they aro so now, and I hope they will al ways remain so.Laws are mfde to be en forced and respected. If they prove ob noxious repeal them as speedily as pos sible. This cry bv the saloon-keepers and their friends that prohibition does not prohibit, is all moonshine. It is like putting a fence around a haystack with tho bars left open and then curse the stock for going in. Only two days ago I noticed a man coming out of a saloon dead drunk and in his shirt sleeves, car rying his vest and cap in his hands, and if he could hiivo performed the act he would undoubtedly haye pulled off his shirt. Now he did not get so hot smell ing at the cork of an "original package" and you know it. Now if you saloon keepers will bo a little more careful and live up to law and order, yon will find that most of the good citizens will not molest you and I doubt very much if oven what you call "prohibition cranks" will trouble you very much. If you all wish to bo made "aldermen" I hopo you will come out more frank and manly in the future. With malice to none, I re main, Yours vc-rv respectfully, CHAS'. HENSEI.. Jamestown, N. D.

Speaking of the improbability of the Sioux on the Devils Lake reservation joining their crazy relatives west of the Missouri, in any outbreak against the whites, Post Trader Frank Palmer of Fort Totten, quoted by the New Rock ford Transcript, says: "These Indians have been here since 1867, and have been well cared for by the government. All under thirty five years of age know no other home, have been educated on this reservation, and most of them read and write quite readily. They have not beeu trained to the wild, prairie life of their forefathers, or of their kin folks on the Missouri river, where the 'Messiah' craze seems to rage most furi ously. A winter campaign on the bleak prairie would be a hardship these Indians could not stand any better than the soldiers. The chiefs liable to tire their miuds are all on other reservations, and what few old warriors there are here have gone through the flint mill often enough to not to solicit any more of it. The rumor that a band of armed bucks had left 1 his reservation, ostensibly to join the followers of Sitting Bull, origi nated from three oung fellows leaving the reservation after rabbits. There was one gun in tho crowd." And a smile toyed with his mustache as he said: "The Indians on this reservation can not take the warpath this winter because their oxen are unshod."
