Levi Dalley one of the old settlers in the Mount Pleasant district was a visitor in Jamestown today. Mr. Dalley says his folks in New York and New Jersey are greatly alarmed about his safety ou account of the Indians. Grand Master Workman Hughes was at Mandan a few days since in the inter ests of the A. O. U. W., and expects to return next week and institute a lodire there. Mandan is one of the few North Dakota cities of pretentions that has no Workman lodge.

Grand Forks Herald: The enemies of Gil Pierce assert that Jay Gould de mands h^s re election. Their declaration disproves itself.

Dr. Richmond of Edmunds, member of the county pension examining board, at tended a meeting here yesterday where one applicant presented himself. The boaid will average about a meeting a week. Dr. R.. who is practicing at Ed munds, says the people of that neighbor hood are unusually healthy. It must be gratifying to taxpayers to notice the celerity with which business is being dispatched in the district court.The long delays and annoyances usual before getting to jury trials have been con sdicuons by absence this term. The afternoon of the tirst day of court saw a jurv empaneled and the trial of a jury case proceeded with. Judge Rose is greatlly assisted in this noteworthy dis patch of business by the attorneys, who have been unusually prompt. The effic ient corps of court officials also has much to do with this result. Clerk Branch is an intelligent and capable official, who is thoroughly at home in his position. Bailiffs Vennum and Barrett know their business and do it and Sheriff Schmitz and Deputy McGregor have looked after court before and don't let any grass grow under thei/ feet when their services are required. District Attorney Frye has not bad much county business, on ac count of the absence of criminal cases. The grand jury was dispensed with and this pleases everybody, but Sheriff Schmitz, He good naturedly says he is opposed to the grand jury on principle, but that it would have been worth sev eral hundred dollars to him and as a matter of business is in favor of it while occnpying the shrievalty. There was no apparent, occasion for a srrand jury and the taxpayers who would have had to pay a thousand or two for the luxury are doubtless more than satisfied to dispense with it. i-'rom Friday's Dailv.

Ewing has just returned from holding Sunday school institutes on the line of the Jamestown & Northern. Suc cessful meetings were held at Pingree, Melyille, Carrington, Sykeston, New Rockford, Sheyenne and Oberon. Many of the farmers in this region have real ized good profits from their farms this year and IU most of the towns good trade is reported. The street crossing on the corner at Lloyd's bank isin need of some repairs. A load jof dirt would fill up big hole there and be a needed improvement.Last evening John iiudolph, a farmer living north of town, ran into this hole and tip ped a big ioad of hay over.

L. 31. B. last night in the Metropolitan burn ing was a very pleasant affair socially Je well as successful financially. The sin, tlower song and the fan drill by anun,: -. of young girls were charming feu ., *.. The tableaux, several in number were very interesting and amusing and presented opportunities for clever acting which were improved by the young participants. The collection of fancy goods was large and sales in that line numerous. Supper was served dur ing the evening. Tne rooms were crowd ed with visitors all the time and every one seemed to enjoy tho occasion. Judge Hamilton calls attention to a matter which farmers will do well to con sider and can lose nothing by acting upon. It is that wheat drilled in l'rom east to west yields better and stands the drouth better than when put in running north and south. The explanation of this is that grain thus planted shades the ground from the fierce nndday sun, while when drilled in north and south the sun shines unobstructed down through the rows, and bakes and dries out the ground. Shrewd observers have noticed for several years that grain thus planted yields much heavier than ad joining fields, upon the same quality of land where the same care has been given. Mr. W. E. Greene attaches so much im portance to the theory that in re-renting one of his farms he stipulated in the contract that the grain should be drilled in from east to west. A pocket book belonging to N. D. Witliam of Guellpb, Dickey county, was losr, yesterday afternoon, probably on Fifth avenue south of the Metropolitan. It contained $-15 in money, several checks his credentials as collector for the alli ance aid commission, on which business he «as in the city. The book also con tained a subscription list of donors to fund for relief of the drouth stricken settlers in Dickey county. The money belonged to Mr. Witham personally and he feels the loss keenly. Duriug the afternoon in company with Bishop Shan ley he had visited the mayor's office with the intention of calling a meeting of citi zens to help out the cause, but that plan was changed and a meeting of the min isters was held at the bishop's residence instead, to further the project. Mr. Witham is the accredited representative of the alliance, and any one donating can rest assured of tho proper disposal of whatever is given. A car of Hour has been secured from Fargo, one is promised from Grand Forks, whilo Mayville, Hun ter and other points have given liberally to the cause, and Jamestown no doubt will do the same. From Saturday's Daily. J. T. Piercy and J. ET. Hosmer are two Pingreeites at the Capital house. W. A. Milne, Corinne and D. B. Berlin, Dazey, are Capital house guests. O. C.

The latest sensation is reported from New Rockford. A few bucks from tbe Ft. Toiten reservation had been trap ping on the Jim river near that town and indulged in owe of 'heir religious crazes in the shape of the ghost dances Thursday night. The New Rockford people natur ally were frightened and telegrams were sent to Gov. Miller for arms and one to General Miles asking for protection.

There wrs a large audience at the Opora rink last night to see the dramatic version of Mrs. Burnett's beautiful story "Little Lord Fauntleroy." The piav it self is all that has be^n claimed .for it. It is a charming iuyl full of touching sentiment and delicate humor. Mr. Aik^n as the Earl of Dorricourt, Mr. Peakes as the solicitor, Mr. Basset.t as Hobos the grocer, and Miss Rossmore as the adventuress, are till deserving of special mention. The company gave one of the cleanest and host performances seen here for some time. The child-act ing by a little child of seven or eight years of age was remarkably excellent. Tho play was necessarily cut in some parts on account of inadequate stage scenery and facilities. L'nda W. Slaughter who is a frequent contributor to the state press, is about to enlarge her forum. She is thus quoted in the Bismarck Tribune: Yes, it is truo that, I contemplate starting a daily paper in Bismarck next month It isn't going to be a Sunday school paper, either, al though I believe in religion, labor reform farmers'alliance and protection. There isn't going to beany politics in it either, so it won't interfere with any of tho ex cellent papers already hore. and anyway 1 am sure our editors are all too magnan imous to frown down a woman's journal istic enterprise. It is purely a business venture started for business purposes. I am at home in the journalist's profession and hf«ve no business talent, so why should not I succeed as well as mother? Hon. A. C. McGillivray, state senator elect from Stark county, and wife and Hon. T. S. Underbill and wife of Dick inson. came in from Fargo today. Both gentlemen have been attending the meeting of the World's fair association at Grand Forks. The gathering was well attended from a local point of view. It seems that Fargo and Cass county, did not join in tne movement with the enthusiasm expected. Mr. Underhill said the meeting should have been held at Jamestown, where delegates from the west as well as the east could more eawly attend. It is predicted that the Red river counties will get into a "scrap" be ^,V 't ftHT7, .1 fore long over the matter.

Bismarck Tribune: Judge Morgan of the Devils Lake district has made a ruling that will bo of general in terest to attorneys. The question being raised in open court as to the right of attorneys to practice—they not having taken an oath to support the state con stitution—Judge Morgan held tho point well taken. Nothing was accomplished in the dis trict court this morning. The jury in the case of the Wood Machine company vs. J. T.

Courier of Dee. 13th announces the marriage at that place on Tuesday. Dec. 9th, of Mr. Fred Burleson of Jamestown, and Miss Pearl BufFham of that place. This announce ment will be something of a s'urpriee to the Jamestown friends of the groom who went east several weeks ago to spend the winter. Air.

The Fargo Argus declares that a couple of females have been begging for Dickey county sufferers and have suc ceeded in getting considerable aid. They are said to be frauds. The Argvs gently insinuates that it was "unfortunate that Rev. N. D. Witham should have gone to Jimtown—and lost bis pocketbook—on his return to Dickey county with collec tions for "destitute sufferers." And yet The Alert says he had not found the pocketbook Saturday." There is no donbt what Rev.

The North Dakota mills not beiug able to supply the demand it is proposed to admit a number of Minnesota mills into the association. The socrotary of tho asso ciation says that their London trade has far exceeded their brightest expectations and that although the North Dakota mills have tdready shipped about 10,000 sacks, or 30,000 barrels, o? flour, of that brand alone to that market, it has cotne nowhere near supplying the demand, and that as much more could have easily boon disposed of at. good prices. The New Rockford Indian scare was a hoax of tho rankest description —not withstanding tlie startling telegrams and the appeal to Adjutant General DoVoy for protection. The following telegram in yesterday's papers tells how it hap pened: "The Indian scare here, an ac count of which was published today throughout tho country, turns out to have been a hoax. Last evening eight or ten friendly Indians appeared close to town and put up a tepee. A practical joker started tho story that there wero at least fifty Indians, and that they were on the v,-ar path. Residents of New Rockford are as safe from Indian depre dations and their scalping knives as are the citizens of either of tho Twin cities." The Indians liail bean thrashing on ho reservation and what gave rise to the ghost dance rumor was the fact of tho Indians, backs and squaws alike being engaged in some kind of a game with a button and a mitten.
