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.

A few Touches From Spurkliijg ln

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

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

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

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.

Tin Trial of Jury Cases Coin
meutetl on the Opening
Fire Department 3Ioiie.v Case
Now Heing Tried—Good
man (rets Damages.
The Ceremony of Blessing the
St. .John's Aeadeiny Occurred
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

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.

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
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.

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

EDITOI: ALEUT:— Permit me to use the
columns of your papor to reply to a state
ment iu yesterday's issue of "Der Pio
neer" in regard to my defeat last Mon
day. 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

The Devils Lake Sioux.
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."
A Kaiiway Event,
The Alert is in receipt of an elegant
invitation for the opening of the new
Grand Central passenger station at Chi
cago, Dec. 8. The station is at Harrison
street and Fifth avenue. The building
is conceded to be the most magnificent,
railway depot in the country. The invi
tations come with the compliments of the
Chicago & Northern Pacific, the Chicago,
St.Paul & Kansas City, and the Wisconsin
Central, ot which the Northern Pacific is
lessee. The colored engravings of tbe
souvenir portion of the invitation show
the entire structure with views of the
general waiting rooms, the dining room,
ticket and Pullman office, and the ex
terior view, being an immense arcade of
iron and glass under which trains of
the various roads arrive and depart.
Among the gentlemen whose province is
to preside over the destinies of the pas

this great station are W. R. Busenbark
and F. W. Lord of tbe Kansas City line,
and Louis Eckstein of the Wisconsin
