found by Oiliuer Tritchler on Notyhern
Pacific avenue, in Far^o, yesterday af­
ternoon, running around in the cold
without a shoe .on. He acted in a very
peculiar manner and couldn't give a
rational account of how he came to be in
that condition—so he was gathered in
and locked up. The insanity board ad­
judged him insane and sent him to the
asylum. Carr is just out of the peniten­
tiary at Bismarck for burning the city
jail at Minot, where he was confined.
Yesterday's Minneapolis Journal con­
tained a two column article on the
women's clubs and organizations of
Jamestown, one of a series of articles
which the correspondents of that enter­
prising journal have been preparing
concerning the women of the northwest.
This article is exceedingly interesting
and complimentary to the ladies of this
city and sets forth their organized activi­
ties. The ladies are energetic, progress­
ive and their work along philanthropic
and fraternal lines has counted for much.
To those who have given the subject no
thought it will be somewhat in the na­
ture of a surprise to know just what the
women of Jamestown are doing and have
accomplished along these lines of work.
The last of the visiting Woodmen left
the city this morning after enjoying an
exceedingly pleasant banquet at the
Capital hotel last evening. The propri­
etors of that popular hostelry set up an
excellent spread in the best of style, and
when the feasting was begun, the hosts
were complimented by the onslaughts
made upon the tempting viands. The
speeches at the banquet were short,
crisp and to the point and everything
passed of very smoothly. The address
off welcome was delivered by T. F.
Branch and responded to by C. L. Ward
of Ellendale. 11. A. Bill acted as toast
master. Phil S. Randell of Ellendale,
state counsel of the order, spoke
of the state camp, while E. M.
Whitman of LaMoure, made the
subject of his remarks, "The Music
of the Camp." Attorney A. H. McLain of
Cando, sentry of the state camp and a
delegate to the Head Camp, left no room
for doubt in the minds of any, if such
there were, as to what they were there
for. Interspersed in the evening's enter­
tainment were musical selections by T.
II. Goyet and Adam Neutzel, the latter
performing upon a zither. Several of
the delegates who resided east of James­
town took advantage of the evening
train and did not remain over to the

John Clark, witb a crew of men, has

The personal injury suit of Geo. A.
Bennett against the Northern Pacific
Railroad comoany, which was decided
in favor of the plaintiff and damages
awarded by a jury at the last term of the
district court in this city, has been re­
versed by tho supreme court. The judg­
ment is reversed because of an error in
charging the jury that liability of de­
fendant depended solely upon freedom
of plaintiff from contributory negligence
the defendant's negligence not being
established by the evidence as a matter
of law. The suit has been tried three
times in the district, and three times in
the state supreme.court, and is now sent
back for its fourth appearance before
this court.
Supt. C. C. Smith returned this morn­
ing from Hillsboro, where be attended
the high school council. The meetings,
he states, were of much interest and well
attended. W. E. Hoover, of Larimore,
was elected president and Mr. Schmidt,
vice president. J. D. Campbell, of Park
River, was elected secretary. The general
association elected Jos. Kennedy, a mem­
ber of the state university at Grand
Forks, president, and an executive board
consisting of County Superintendents
Stockwell, of Grafton W. T. Perkins, of
Bismarck, and W. E. Hoover, of Lari­
more. The next meetisg will be held at
Grand Forks a year hence. A committee,
consisting of Superintendents Wood, De
vine and Fancher, was elected to draft a
free text book bill to be presented at the
coming session of the legislature. An
expression of the satisfactory results ob­
tained in counties where uniformity of
text books has been maintained, strongly
warrants the advisability of such a
liaker Gets It.
Bismarck correspondent Fargo Argus:
I understand Miss Bates has appointed
W. C. Baker, of the Grand Forks Herald,
deputy superintendent of public instruc­
tion. Mr. Baker will have charge of ttie
office work and the general business
features of her ofllce, while she will look
after the purely educational, doing the
field and institute work. F. W. Cathro
will help organize the work of the office,
and remain during the legislative ses­
sion. Miss Maggie Davidson, as hereto­
fore announced, will be the stenographer.
There was much to recommend Hon. J.
M. Devine for the position, but his ap­
pointment, Miss Bates felt, would give
color to the story put afloat by probably
a well meaning friend during the cam­
paign that she gained her nomination
for the ofllce through a deal made witb
Devine whereby he was not only to be­
come her deputy but her husband also,
in return for his withdrawal in her favor
at the convention. The story not only
put Devine in a position where he could
say nothing in advocacy of Miss Bates
during the oampaign, but also made it
impossible for her to use to the beet ad­
vantage bis splendid abilities as an edu­
cator. I am aware that the young man
who wrote the article does not see any
impropriety in it, atid yet the effect has
been to injure both.

Concerning the Pope's Posi­
tion on Secret Societies
and the Church.
Bishops of America Consider­
ing the Question. --Their
Decision Necessary
Democrats in Congress not
Able to Assume Legis­
lative Responsibility.
Washington-, Dec. 20th.—Associated
press dispatches fiom lioine says: It is
not true that the status of secret so­
cieties, Son&of Temperance, Odd Fellows
and Knights of Pythias, have been set­
tled for members of the Catholic church
in the United States. There is the be.st
of authority for saying that the decree
condemning these societies and a form
for promulgation of the decree has been
sent out by a congregation of Roman
theologians, andj have been, by order of
the pope, ^submitted to the bishops of
America, from whom tt pope wishes to
hear before his final decision. The
bishops of the various states of Amerca are
now consulting together and writing to
Rome their opinions. The submission
of the decree to American prelates was
Another dispatch from Washington
gives further particulars as follows: The
method of executing the Catholic church
edict against membership in the Knights
*of Pythias,JOdd Fellows and other soci­
eties, is now receiving the careful con­
sideration of church authorities. Mgr.
Satolli has transmitted the decision to
the heads of all dioceses throughout the
country, and it remains for them to con­
vey it to parish priests and for the latter
to give it practical application, as to time
and execution,feach having considerable
latitude,as to how he shall act. No time
is set within which the heads of the dio­
cese may act, Some, already, have noti­
fied their parish priests to read the pro­
hibition to the congregations yesterday
at announcements preceding the masses.
Other bishops have not required public
announcement to the congregations as
communications from Rome and from
Satoli do not direct the formal publica­
tion and they make it effective largely
through the confessional. It therefore
may take some time for the papal decree
to become fully effective and to reach
those persons who continue their mem­
bership in secret societies after the order
of the church becomes known.
Cleveland .Being Deserted by Demo­
cratic Congressmen.
Washington, Dec. 28, 1894.—Mr.
Cleveland has more confidence in
the coming republican congress than in
the existingjdemocratic congress, or else
he is pretenditg that he has, in order to
induce the democrats in congress to pass
the Carlisle currency bill or some other
bill along the same lines. It is certain
that a hiutjalmost as strong as an official
notification has been given prominent
democrats in congress, direct from Mr.
Cleveland, that unless this congress
passes some]! financial bill, of a nature
satisfactory to the administration, an
extra session of the new republican con­
gress will be called soon after the fourth
of next March, for the express purpose of
dealing with financial matters. The hint
has not, however, had the effect intended.
Democrats say that as a matter of party
policy, the democrats in congress cannot
do better than to shift the responsibility
of financial legislation to the next con­
gress, in the hope that the republicans
may make some mistake that will give
the democrats a chance to elect the next
president, something they acknowledge
themselves to be without at this time.
Republicans' smile at this condition of
affairs and point to the fact that no con­
gress controlled by republicans has ever
attempted to shirk any of its responsi­
bilities. Republican congresses have
made mistakes, but they were mistakes
caused by action, and never by fear of ac­
tion. Republicans have been approached
and asked to name what amendments to
the currency bill would be necessary to
secure their support for the bill. None
have been named, however, as nothing
could induce republicans to support tho
There seems to be a plot amoug a few
members of his own party to try to make

Minto's Destructive Tire.
Minto, N. D., Dec. 30.—The most de­
structive lire for years broke out at 5
o'clock Saturday morning and was not
controlled until S o'clock. It started in
Currier's meat market, and before the
department arrived the building was a
total loss. The fire spread to the east
and west, consuming McKay's drug
store, Cairncroes hardware, Copp's
dressmaking, Moore's bakery and three
saloons run by Smith, Currie and Kling
er. The building of Miss Otlicier, milli­
ner, was razed, to obeok the progress of
the tire. None insured bnt Cairncross.

of the Cairncross building, 93,000. Loss,
$20,000. No prospects of rebuilding.
