ROBERT M. POLLOCK
DIED AT FAlKiO
Robert M. Pollock of Fargo died
early Tuesday morning in Fargo, his
death coming suddenly and unexpect
edly. Mr. Pollock was one of the beat
known men in the state, having been
a resident of North Dakota since 1887,
engaged in the practice of law. It was
at the Constitutional convention in
1889 that Mr. Pollock became known
as a staunch advocate for the people
and also of the temperance cause, at
which time' he, together with Arne P.
Haugen, framed and attached the pro
hibitory clause to the Constitution of
the state. Twenty-two years ago Mr.
Pollock was selected as a member of
the Board of Trustees of the Fargo
College and has remained a continu
ous and honored member till the time
of his death.
Mr. Pollock was born in Racine
county, Wis., Dec. 16, 1854, a son of
James H. and Eveline (Halstead)
Pollock, of New York. The father,
whose life was devoted to farming,
removed to Wisconsin in 1848 and
there made his home until his death.
During his boyhood and youth Mr.
Pollock attended the public schools of
Jus native state, and then taught
school for three years, during which
time he also read law. Subsequently
he entered the law ofFice of Judge
Elbert O. Hand, of Racine, and in 187!)
was admitted to practice at the bar
of Wisconsin. In 1880 he came to Cas-

NEARLY "A MILE OF NEW
LOCOMOTIVES" FOR SERVICE
ON GREAT NORTHERN R. R.
St. Paul, October 15.—There is to
be no lack of motive power anywhere
on the Great Northern Railway. The
first two of 45 Mikado type locomo
tives ordered from the Baldwin Loco
motive works arrived under their own
power today and went right into ser
vice. The rest will make their ap
pearance on the line before long.
These new gigantic locomotives are
each 83 feet in length. If they were
strung out together they would make
a train of locomotives more than two
thirds of a mile long. The total cost
of this new equipment is $3,150,000.
Each of these locomotives weighs
more than half a million pounds,
(513,000 pounds to be exact). Their
tenders are of the Vanderbilt type—
with cylindrical water tanks, and they
are the first of this kind to appear
west of the Rocky Mountains in the
Northwest. Each locomotive has a
water capacity of 10,000 gallons
enough water to furnish a day's sup
ply for a fair-sized town. Besides, the
I tender of each of these locomotives
carries 16 tons of coal.
The locomotives are equipped with
all the latest devices, such as stokers,
grate shakers, super-heaters, etc. As
fast as they are delivered they will
he distributed over the line of the
Great Northern for freight service.
