The festive thresher keeps the police busy nights, when, free from the day's labor, he comes to town to "bowl up" on alcohol and make merry geaerally. The Capital hotel boiler has been removed from the ruins of the burned hotel and placed in position in the new hotel where it will be used for heating purposes.

As is well known here many of the in ferences and conclusions drawn are not warranted by the facts in the case. The indictments against the Lloyds have not been quashed or argued yet at any term of court. A party of government surveyors, under charge of. Van H. Mauning, have arrived in the state again, for a resump tion of topographic survey work. The survey was started at Jamestown last year and carried as far as Sanborn. This survey is for the purpose of making a plat of the land adjacent to the North ern Pacific railroad for irrigation pur poses aud thorough work is being done by the gentlemen in the field.

William Jones, a neighbor, has 300 acres of flax. If there was any price for grain we would have some taoney in our coun try. B-ut as it is there will not be much left from wheat.

Speoial bank examiner Stanisby leaves today after completing the examination of the aocountsaud records of tbe Lloyds bank since it hat* been in charge of the receiver. No information of special im portance to the depositors is the result of the investigation, which is purely' a formal examination ordered on all defunct banks, OS a matter of precaution and aid in .their safe and proper manage ment Every thing was found satis factory and a few suggestions on minor matters made, in reference to the ac counts. The examiner's work had nothing iu connection with criminal pro secution as that matter has been, it is generally understood, taken from the hands of both receiver and comptroller, and lies wholly within the depart* ment of justice. A specimea of the work of destruction saused to piliug on tbe Pacific coast by the toredo was received by the Gull River Lumber company today in a car load of Washington fir lumber. In a section of the fir log, where the toredo had been at work, are seen hundreds of smooth-bored holes, larger than a lead pencil in circumference. No remedy for the preservation of piling, placed in salt xrater, has yet been found, although thousands of dollars reward for the same have been offered, and many other thousands spent in experimenting for one. At Everett, Wash., there is a deep fresh water stream where wharfage can be built and the piling preserved, as the toredo cannot live in fresh water. That was one of tbe great inducements in the selection of the town site of that big "proposition." Tno specimen of the toredo's work was taken to the fair head quarters by Frank Taylor as a curiosity. Hailroad Kninbliiigs. The Western Union telegraph office at Valley Junction has been closed and the operator removed to Horai-e. Monday and Tuesday of this week twenty-one freight trains passed this sta tion, east and west, each day over the Northern Pacific. About half of the east-bound trains were ioaded with live stock, the remainder with wheat and merchandise. About half the cars on the west-bound train9 were loaded with merchandise, the others being empty. IMany of the iumber shipments to southern states that now come from Washington over the Northern Pacific and go south by way of Oakes, may be sent over the new Burlington line destiaation, say the railroad people. On or before Nov. 1 the Burlington will be completed to a junction with the North ern Pacific at Billing. It has already made such arrangements with the North ern Pacific as will make it one of the most prominent factors in transconti nental b«einess to and from the North Pacific ooast. Forall practical purposes it will be an additional transcontinental line, as ^t will roa through traics to Portland via Billings on tbe Northern Pacific. Although the Northern Pacific will tfcus admit a new competitor into its own territory, the combination will materially strengthen it in dts irrepressi ble conflict with the Great Northern By its Burlington connection at its St Pad! teruiious-and half way to the-coast it will be in much better -shape to meet 0!w» petition. So -*€8ncl»ers*' XensaL -J. S.

This department has received notifica tion under a recent date from W. deC. Kavenel, acting assistant in charge of the division of fish culture of the depart ment of the United States commission of fish and fisheries, with headquarters at Washington, D. C., that within sixty days from Aug. 7, 1804, the following amount of fish will be delivered in our state. For Devils Lake— Black bass, 100 croppie, 50 perch, 150, and cat fish, 100. For Spiritwood Lake—Black bass, 200, which will arrive in Jamestown for tbe writer in care of W. P. Sheperd, game and fish protector of Stutsman county. Mr. S. has agreed, by letter, to take charge of the fish on arrival and place them at once in Spiritwood lake, and in order to insure the proper handling of the fish I have given specific instruc tions. In regard to the matter, and as your game and fish protector is a considerate and competent man, I feel assured tbe fiBh will be carefully protected and placed in the waters of your attractive lake. These are tbe requirements: Vessels Tin, iron or wood, free from injurious matter,partly filled with cool fresh water, and of a currying capacity of 120 gallons must be Becured and held in readiness and conveniently placed for an im mediate transfer of the fish the moment the train shall come to a stop. It is de sirable to secure the co-operatioD of the depot agent that he may receive and care for the fish in case Mr. Sheperd shall be absent. The fish commission car is usually attached to the rear end of the train and the messenger may be found in iuj uaggage car or in the regular coaches. The fish will be oE a good fair size, which is a desirable feature, as all can readily see. Cause of the Small Amount—The amount is limited, but this is all the honorable United States commissioner can spare at this time. Other install ments will doubtless follow for the Spiritwood lake. It must be remembered that there is no law fixing a certain quality or amount of fish for each state. All applications from state commissioners and from private individuals are duly entered on the books of the United States com mission. of fish and fisheries and filled in their order, or as soon as circumstances and the supply of fish will allow. The facilities for the propogation of fish on the part of the national government is on the increase, but the demand all over the Union is multiplying to such an ex tent that there is but a meagre supply to be secured, and the shipments come slowly. Some idea of the draft made on the United States oommission may be obtained by the following facts: During the fiscal year ending June 30,1891, the comtsission provided for tbe various waters of the country in the way of fish eggs, fry, adults and yearlings the enor moas amount of 418,222,469. In addi tiot to the above 2,054,000 were deposited for Tearing in the fish pond at Washing toe, D. C. and 13,599,590 ottrf, adults and yearlings were forwarded for distribution in various eections, but lost in transit, naaking a total of 433,876,059 furnished & one year from 23 fish stations oper ated by theoiational fish oommission. It must not Se forgotten that much, or naost of tbe fish consisting of nearly 37 varieties, are distributed in the Great Lakes, tbe darge rivers running into the seas and the inlets of the Atlantic and the Pacific -oceans. Thus, comparatively speaking, feat small quantities reach the inland waters of the states. All these facta together with many more that could be adduced, have caused many states to -start fish hatcheries of their own, by which means fish culture has made good progress in such common wealths. .Minnesota is one of the states where a state fish hatchery has been es tablished with most favorable results. A State Fieh Hatchery.—The fact that North Dakcta cannot depend upon tbe national government for a supply of fish necessary for the stocking of her waters is becoming fully recognized by many of our leading citizens and the necessity of a fish hatchery has become apparent. Therefore, moved by a sense of duty, I have for some time been investigating as time and circumstances have allowed, •eertn«n points where waters and other conditions seem favorable for such an establishment, and should uur next legislative assembly deem the subject worthy of attention, the information gleaned will probably prcve of value in the matter. The state hatchery will lead to a larger supply from the national government. Should a state fish hatchery be estab lished in North Dakota, it will not de crease the supply from the national government, but rather greatly increase the same. This fact will be made clear by the writer at some future date. The Presentation o? Practical Benefits is Urged.—Should The Alert or other state papers favor tbe idea of a state tish hatchery, I trust it will present to its readers the practical advantages to ac crue from the same, to the end. that the people being informed upon the subject niB.v instruct their legislators as to what steps should be taken in regard to the scheme.
