Peter Peterson of Cathay left Oct.
25th for Malta, Montana, having been
called there by a telegram asking him
to come at once as his son, Ed, had
shot himself. Later a telegram was
received to the effect that Ed died
Friday, Oct. 20. At the time of this

tain whether or not the shooting was
accidental. Mr. Peterson is one of the
old settlers of Cathay, while Ed is well
known there, having lived there until
two or three years ago, when he mov

all who knew him, and the many
friends of the family in that district
will be grieved to learn of his death.
"Iowa Slim" and another man
named Connor, arrested some time ago
by the mounted police of Manitoba

Winnipeg, are believed to be the men
who 'blew the safes in the Eckman

eral weeks ago. Both are alleged to
have criminal records and to have
done jobs in several states. While
circumstantial evidence connecting
them with the burglaries in this state
is said to be very strong, the author
ities have not announced that they
have anything direct on them as yet.
Detectives are at work on the case
and developments are expected.
George Frazier, six feet four inches

description at Third and Roberts
streets. In a letter to Sheriff John

picion of murder, arson and theft. It

near Cando one night, when one man
was killed and robbed and the shack
burned to the ground. Frazier, policc
say, admits his identity and that he
was trying to escape, when his height

A Bare-faced Fraud
The article "Wilson Will Win In North Dakota,"
published as an advertisement in the Bismarck Tribune,
Grand Forks Herald and Minot Optic-Reporter, was
written by republicans and paid for by republican mon
ey. While it purported to be a democratic advertise
ment the purpose was to alienate support from Gov.
Burke of nonpartisans by an attack upon Mr. Frazier.
When it becomes necessary for Mr. McCumber or his
friends to resort to bare-faced fraud, as in this case, it is
fair to presume that they are hard pressed.

of Dr. Samuel Smith of St. Paul.
Young Sam was always referred to as
"Windy" Smith. In those days he
stoutly maintained that through the
influence of his father what is at pres
ent Parshall would be located on his
homestead, according to his story, Dr.
Smith being one of the heaviest stock
holders in the Soo railway. There
were people here at that time who
were credulous enough to take stock in
his story, notwithstanding he was well
named "Windy." To hear of Windy at
this time is like reviewing a chaptei
of the past.
