Foabd His Horses.
W. S. OasEelman found bis hones near
Fainted Woods Thursday evening. The hor
ses were straying about the prairie and al
though no thieves ,*ere found .with them, jthe
fact that they had been stolen, were strong.
Gates, the fellow who was recently arrested on
suspicion in thiB city, is evidently the chief of
the guilty ones. Gates and another man
called at the boose of Mr. Fickle Thursday
morning and described the horses, stating that
they had lost them and were in search. Gates
said he was a son of the man who owned the
animals and that they were brought from
Canada, in the evening the thieves returned
and while in conversation, Mr. Pickle asked
which was the son of the owner of the horses.
This time the other man, whose name is not
known, said he was the heir. This aroused
Mr. Pickle's suspicion, and as his strangejguests
made themselves, dissgretably at home he began
to think he bad a couple of very undesirable
visitors. After taking dinner with Mr. Pickle,
Oates and his companions went in search of
the horses. There were several others in the
gang, among whom Billy Adams, the cowboy,
wcs recognised Vy the son of Mr. Wilcox, who
lives fonr miles north of the Fickle farm. In
the evening Mr. Gasselman with a number of
farmers who turned out with rifles to hunt for
the horses and the thieves, oame upon the ani
mals just south of Fainted Woods. Mr. Cas
selman remained at Mr. Pickle's Thursday
night, and yesterday morning all the neighbors
came to the house with rifles and offered to
pursue, and if possible find the thieves. They
left it with Mr. Gasselman to decide, and as he
had not fonnd the horses in anybody's pos
session, and could make no direct case on any
of the supposed thieves, he decided not to en
danger the lives of his friends and returned to
report the circumstances to Deputy Sheriff
Griffin. Gates is a bad man and should be

Death by *as.
The Steele Herald contains the following ac
count of the death of Mr. Wallace T. Farring
ton, a homesteader, yesterday from well gas
"One of the saddest events that we have ever
been called upon to chronicle, occurred this
morning about six o'clock in the death of Mr.
Wallace T. Farrington by suffocation from gas.
Mr. Farrington was living on his homestead,
the southwest quarter of section 4,139, 73, had
been, for the past week engaged in digging a
well, and in the process struck a vein of gas, at
a depth of about thirty feet, but it not being of
such strong character work was kept going until
a depth of fifty feet was reached. Last even
ing it was noticed that the volume of gas was
tnnch Btronger, and an effort was made to drive
it out by fire, but every attempt to produoe fire
in the bottom of the well proved to be a failure.
This morning, about six o'clock, Mr. Farrington
insisted upon going down in the well amid the
protestations of his wife and his farm hands.
On reaching the bottom ef the well he called to
those at the top to draw him up, which was at
once proceeded with, and the unfortunate man
reached within twenty feet of the top when he
was overcome and fell from the bucket to the
bottom of the well—a distance of thirty feet—
and all attempts to rescue him proved futile.
Dr. John Harcourt was .at onoe sent for, and on
arriving at the scene of disaster, found, by ex
periments, that it .would be certain death to
attempt a rescue by person. Grappling irons
were then procured, and the. body of the unfor
tunate victim brought to the surface."
The Herald says the deceased leaves a family
in indigent circumstances, and that the people
of Steele will do all in their power to "tempet
the wind to the shorn lambs" he has left behind.
An Enjoyable Day,
By invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Horace Thur
ston of Bismer Mr. and Mrs. Deckard ac
companied them into the country on last Thurs
day for the purpose ot noting the changes and
progress of the past year and see the prospect
for the promised harvest on the Missouri slope.
We went south about eight miles viewing the
crops on our way and noticed wheat and oats,
corn and potatoes, beans and peas, pumpkins
and watermelons, muskmelons and cucumbers
turnips and rutabegas, and other garden pro
ducts in splendid condition.
We bad the good fortune of partaking of a
splendid dinner of fried chicken and nice fres'i
vegetables at Mr. and Mrs. T. G. McDonald's—
living on section 6,range 79, township 137, after
which we wended our way north of the capital
city, pulling up at the homestead of onr old
friend, J. T. Wallace, Efq. We found the
farmer in all of his glory—cordially receiving
as and making us feel glad that we lived "in
this our day," We were inviied to ascend the
stairway leading to the observatory, located on
the roof of the barn, where we had a splendid
view of the growing crops. Then we visited the
milkhonse and enjoyed the nice cool beverage—
not the proverbial "blue John"—but good,sweet
cream, giving delicious flavor to the refreshing
draft, so generously bestowed, of which our
North Dakota people are so fortunate who keep
good milch cows.
Then our genial friend started out for a walk
over the premises. Fruit trees, goosberriee,
raspberries, currants, strawberries and, a beauti
fully laid out garden were seen in fine condi
tion. Ten acres of potatoes, very promising, 15
or 20 acres of oats on sod broken last spring,
likewise five acres of rutabegas and tarnip9, and
15 acres of millet in the best of condition, with
two miles of squashes and two miles of pump
On Mellon Bros.' section of land, south Of Mr.
Wallace's, wheat and oats were in number one
order, and certainly difficult to excell. Mr. Joy
and Mr. Thompson,on the north, show fine crops
Surrounded with 300 chickens and fine crops,
and possessed with such enthusiasm as oar
friend Wallace, based on facts, indisputable
facts, we parted with our friend, feeling that he
had good reasons for what be has advocated
pertaining to the growing value of Nortn
Oar next objective point was John Millet's
farm and garden.
Here we were delighted to see currants, goose
berries, raspberries, loaded with the precious
fruit. Apple trees and plums in Ant-class
condition and large according to age. In short
everything in field and garden seemed to be in
the hands of one who knew/ at what he aimed,
and knew the best way of obtaining the most
We parsed over apart of Mr Sherwood's claim,
but the lateness of the evening wonld not per
mit an expression as to the nature of the crop?.
Mr. Sherwood informed us that everything was
lovely, and his manner carried conviction with
If our "eastern friends" and some of our
"eastern journalists" could but see our new and
rapidly growing country as it is at present, both

such a rush to this country "eye.

aa would be developed in the near future. The
writer lived in the "Miami valley" in the state
of Ohio, the value of whieh for fanning and
gardening has not been questioned, and can*
testify that bo finer grain or garden products
were ever seen by him in seven years than is
now on exhibition over the thousands of aores
on the Missouri slope. J. R. DECKARD.
The excursion reason is now in full bloom
and the people of Bismarck may thank the
Lord for their daily visit from seme party or
other of tourists who come to seek pleasure and
see the country. 'Yesterday morning a special,
car was attached to the west bound passenger
train, bearing seven capitalists from Columbus,
Ohio, among whom was Mr. J. McCune,
father of Attorney McCune, of McLean county.
The members at the psrty were Messrs.
W. G. Deshler, Isaac Eberly, Lorenzo 'English,
Thomas J. Price, A. H. Gling, Ebenrzer Barcus
and J. M. McGnne, all of Columbus, Ohio. They
are en ronte to the National Park and Portland
and will return over the Union Pacifio, Mr. Mc
Cune returning .to Bismarck to visit bis son and
family. Mr. Edw. McCune, wife and children
were in the city yesterday to meet the party.
Governor Pierce Coming Soon,
The following special telegram was Bent
from Washington to the Pione Press of
Friday: "Governor Pierce, of Dakota, arrived
here this forenoon, and paid his respects to the
president and secretary of the interior. He
cannot take the oath ot office until he reaches
the territory, and expects now to be in Yankton
about the first of AngUBt. He will remain
here several days to consult with the president
and secretary of the interior before returning
to Chicago. Governor Pierce does not propose
to take any part in the capital squabble, but
will leave the judicial authorities to decide it.
He finds that the law does not require him to
live at the capital, and that fact will release
him from much embarassment and permit him
to choose a residence wherever he finds it most
agreeable but as soon as the capital dispute is
desided he will locate in the place- selected
He sayB a great many people called upon him
at Chicago, but he did not commit himself to
them on any question.
The Peoria Excursion.
The excursion which has for some time been
announced by the Northern Pacifio, reached
Minneapolis Thursday, the 17th inst, in a body.
The Minneapolis Tribune said of them: "The
party which is composed of leading and in
fluential men, numbered 110. During the
time they remained here they visited Minne
apolis and the lakes on a flying trip, and then
went out on their western journey. A large
nnmber contemplate purchasing new homeR in
Dakota and Montana. Others will extend
their trip to the National Park, special ar
rangements having been made to convey them
As will be seen by the personal column of
the TBIBUNE, several several of the party have
already reached Bismarck. The majority of
the party are scattered along the line east as far
as Fargo, but all must come to Bismarck to
secure their return tickets, and many of them
will secure property before returning. They
are representative men from Iowa and Illinois
and have come for business as well as pleas
ure. Many of them will go as far as the
National Park before returning to their homes.
Service ot Song.
A service of song was held in the Presbyte
rian church Sunday pvpning, which was partici
pated in and ci joyed by large congregation,
The choir furnished some excellent music and
the solo by Mrs. O. W. Bennett was particularly
fine. A short bat pointed discourse was preach
ed by Bev C. B. Austin, in which he took Col
Bob Ingersoll to task In refutation of a rep
uted statement of Ingeisoll's, that the chnrch
membership of the country is decreasing, Mr,
Austin produced (ffioial statistics showing that
the membership of the chnrcb has been on a
rapid increase ever since the beginning of the
Christian era, and that the progress has not
halted or decreased, but gone forward with
greater and better results within the last half
century. Mr. Austin's arguments were highly ap
predated by the congregation.
Geo. Gibbp, having recovered sufficiently to
be considered out of danger from the effects of
the bullet wound inflicted by Ansley, the latter
was released Monday on $1,000 bail. The bail
at one time was fixed at $5,000, but owing to
the circumstances surrounding the case, and
the apparently complete recovery of Mr. Gibbs
the bail was reduced to $1,000.

under the charge of the American Missionary

It now appears that the report recently re
ceived from Washburn to the effect that Johnny
Hackett and a companion named Hart had
joined the horse thieves at Villard is erroneous.
The report that they were hung is also false.

informed the TBIBBNK that the accused are in
search of the thieves who stole two animals from
Mr. Hackett. their father.
