fiorn the Fargo Republican: Harry
tiemington, a brother of Joe Remington,
.an:e in from Casselton today, and is
coufeiring with his brother in jail this
afternoon. A. E. Wood of Casselton,
stated today that at the time Mr. Holmet
ivas found dead in his bed at St. Paul,
Remington was working for him (Mr.
vVood,) and that on the night of Holmes
death Remington was in Casselton and
not in St. Paul. This relieves the pris
ouer of all suspicion of complicity in
that crime. Mr. Wood further stated
there is no ground for the rumor of his
connection with the Vermillion murder
that the man whose finger was said to
have been bitten off at Vermillion, could
net have been Remington for the reason
that Remington lost his tinger at Cassel­
ton while chopping wood.
Fargo Argus: Cashier Mears, of the
national bank of North Dakota, recently
sent the Argus a folder issued by the
people of Jamestown to advertise their
region. The first page contains a circu­
lar letter to the people of the east signed
by Messrs.Wells, Hamilton, Klaus, Bald­
win, Ingraham, Fuller and Lutz. These
gentlemen vouch for the truth of the state
ments which follow in the other pages.
These statements cover nine paves, and
consist of letters from farmers through­
out Stutsman county, telling just what
they had when they came to North Da­
kota, how long they have worked, and
how they have prospered. It is a very
effective little bit of advertising work.
The circular bears the imprint of The
Alert. Cashie- Mears thinks the circular
is suggestive and something similar is
worthy of adoption by Fargo business

John Dillou had tn immense house
last night and kept it uproarious from
first to last. Every seat was taken, and
the galleries were filled. The popular
comediuti retains all his old-time ubility
has, if anything, improved with age. His
fun is of the sparkling, original kind, and
the play presented -"Wanted, the Earth"

acting. Mr. Dillon's support was ex­
cellent throughout. Miss Blake as
'Flaxy" made an especially good impres­
sion, while LaCroix assumed his dual
role in tine shape. It was a ''laughing
earthquake," indeed, and every ticket

Notwithstanding the interminable dif­
ficulties which beset the production of a
really meritorious play in Jamestown,
the May Louise Aigen company acquit
tod themselves creditably last night, in
"The Two Orphans." Even the inade­
quate stage facilities, and a failure of the
snow scene to work properly, did not
prevent a very realistic presentation of
the piece. That Miss Aigen is a clever
actress was evident from her excellent
work as the blind gin—a character re­
quiring the rarest histrionic ability
while Mr. Huebner assumed the dual role
of Pierre, the cripple, and Maurice De
Veaudore, in a manner which challenged
frequent applause. In the remainder of
the cast the support fully equalled ex­
pectations. The audience was bmull, but
decidedly appreciative.

Last fall's rains moistened the earth
so that the frost has gone down deep,
and with the snow that has fallen of
late, it insures plenty of moisture for
the spring seeding, and it is believed a
good crop for the coming season—for
there is nothing that will produce as
good a crop of No. 1 hard as plenty of
frost in the ground. In addition to the
moisture already assured it is noted tba
SoiKii Dakota IR also covered with a
blanket of snow. This will largely ure
veut the excessive hot winds of last sea­
son, as the snow will leave moisture in
the ground, which will moderate the hot
wind that in June some times comes
from the south causing such sudden and
general destruction to growing grain in
this state.
The May Louise Aigen company rend­
ered the laughable comedy, "Confusion,"
last night, after a most lively and enter­
taining fashion. Miss Aigen excels in
comedy roles. Her Lucretia was very
funny and the part kept the audience,
in constant laughter. Confusion is a
play where mistakes and comical 6itua
tious follow in bewildering succession,
and the company last night made the
most of all of them. Mr. F. C. Huebner
as Uncle Blizzard, did some excellent
character work, while the other members
of the company all conspired to please.
The Loyal Legion gave a temperance

Kev. Wm. Gibo delivered short addresses,
and Rev. J. D. Whitelaw pronounced the
benediction. The concert lusted just ouo

Bismarck Tribune: The probabilities
are that Saturday night's sad shooting
affair will result more seriously than at
first expected. The preliminary examin­
ation of Roberts was to buve taken plaoe
yesterday, but owing to the change for
the worse in White's condition it has
been postponed until the authonties
know whether to arraign him on the
charge of murder or attempted murder.
Huberts takes matters calmly. He is in
his cell visited frequently through thn
day by his friend John Hogan and a few
others who keep him well supplied with
reading, cigars, etc., and assure him
that White will recover. He evidently
appreheuds what is generally expected,
though he tries hard to conceal his fears.
If the victim should fortunately recover,
it will be nothing short of a modern mir­
acle. Similar instances of a man living
with a bullet bole through his ear dowa
into the neck are very rare, and the bul­
let not having been extracted, fears of
blood poisoning are entertained. He is
unable to take any nourishment other
than beet tea, and is in constant great
pain, opiates having little effect.
