An Enthusiastic Meeting Held Wed nesday Night—Officers Elected. A meeting of firemen was held in the council rooms Wednesday night, and a complete reorganiza tion of the department took place. There was a good attendance, and the meeting proved enthusiastic in every respect. For some time past a paper has been circulated around the city for the names of those desiring to joir^ the new companies, and already 68 signa tures have been secured. At the meeting Wednesday night 28 were present, and a complete set of officers were elected for the en suing year. The meeting was callexl to order by C. W. Greene. He stated that the old company was to be reorganized, and not a new company organized. He then called for the reports from the committees on the hose, hook and ladder and engine companies. The hook and ladder committee was first to respond, and the following list of its membership was read: Phil Shortt Hike McGrnw Win. Hurst, Frank Roble Charles Henley Al. Haslam J. L. Bowser Ed Nelson C. P. Brainurd F. P. Mann Geo. Bond Jotih F. Cowan Nels Peterson John F. Henry Chris Gibney F. Boutier I. N. Walker WUl Hurst, Jr. Treuman Miller Joe Kent C. A. Pierce Vic Haslam M. A. Doheny Jos. Denoyer The committee of the hose com pany reported the following list of names on its membership roll: John Horsman W. E. Crawford. The firemen then proceeded elect offices for the department as a whole. C. Smith was electec The different departments met in seperate bodies, and lected their officers, as follows Hose.—Foreman, G.

The meeting decided as to whether elect the chief, or he appointed by the ma Brown was interview he would appoint their The following were placed in nom ination for chief: C. W. Greene, F. P. Mann, and C. P. Brainard. The first ballot resulted in a tie between Greene and Mann, and the second ballot was hotly con tested, but Fred Mann won out and was declared chief. C. W. Greene was elected assistant chief by acclamation. E. F. Flynn was elected secretary also by acclama tion. The election of treasurer took place before the election of chief, and the following, were nom inated: T. A. Haslam, Curt Brainard, M. A. Doheny, Fred Mann and Geo. Rhuberg, Haslam being- elected. Mr. then se- Hook and Ladder. Foreman, Wm. Hurst assistant foreman, C. P. Brainard secretary and treasurer, I. N. Walker. It was decided that the com panies should practice every Wednesday evening, and that the engineer should get up steam for that purpose. Fred Mann was then called upon for an address and in a few well chosen remarks stated that he was glad to see so much enthusiasm displayed in the new organization, and declared that if they kept together for any length of time, Devils Lake would have« fire department second to none in the state. The city coun cil is looking up a site for the new city hall, and as the companies can do nothing without better ac commodations than they now have, the new hall will be built as soon as possible. The fire appar atus will occupy a good part of the building, which, Mr. Mann asserted, would be a credit to any city. It was then moved that the officers inspect the apparatus, and report to the city council next Monday night for anything that was needed. Inter HOTEL CHAT J. C. Cramond, the hotel man of Langdon, is a guest of Mine Host foughman. He is looking over some promising North Dakota owns with a view to engaging in he hotel business. He is very favorably impressed with the 'uture of Devils Lake. 4a. Among the guests at the Sevilla his week were Robert Little Cloud and Thomas Iyayuhmani, of Fort Totten. They belong to the* aristocracy of the tribe of Inqiians across the lake, and were taking life easy at the hotel, and seemed to greatly enjoy tne splendid bill of fare served. Col. Win. Bischoff, Jr., of Nebraska City, Neb., who resigned the command of his regiment of volunteers that Wm. J. Bryan's ambition for military glory might be satisfied, was at the Sevilla this week. Col. Bischoff is general agent for farm machinery and makes this country once a year. T. T. Leech, of Grand Forks, took Landlord Baughman by sur prise Monday by dropping in on him unexpectedly. They had not in other for unex seen eac'n otner ior six years Leech and J. O. years ago held down adjoining claims in LaMoure county. One day Leech started for the town of LaMoure in lumber wagon. A severe hail storm came up. Stones fell thick and fast, most of them 13 inches in' circumstance. Leech was knocked from his seat and fel back into the wagon box senseless The horses ran away and were ,c$ptured in the town where Leech ijrfis taken from the wagon more dead than alive. His hands anc face were badly lacerated, but no scars remain to mar bis beauty and bear evidence of his first ex perience as a tenderfoot in North Dakota. P. H. Roe, of St. Paul, was at the Sevilla the first of the week Mr. Roe is not the man so fre quently referred to in law books, He gets his fame principally from a startling occurrence in East Grbnc Forks which he delights to tell to his friends. He attended a turkey raffle one Thanksgiving day in the town of booze, and after spending a good deal of money in chances Anally drew a live duck. Some one suggested that he buy the duck a drink, and stepping up to the bar he called for a gin fiz His duckship immediately quaffec the fiery liquid with a relish, and Mr. Roe kept on buying until the duck had drank eleven fizzes. An oyster stew was then ordered which was readily eaten by the duck, after which Mr. Roe called up a hack and took his prize to his hotel in Grand Forks. Mr. Roe is noted for his veracity—and there you are. Rev. Reese was over from Fort Totten Tuesday. He says the cause of the reported trouble among the Sioux at Standing Rock is owing to a misapprehension on the part of the Indians of their treaty with the government. They think they are still working under the old treaty in force before the Custer massacre, which read that rations would be furnished by the government so long as there was an Indian alive. That treaty, however, was abrogated when the tribe took the warpath, which rebellion resulted in the death of Custer and his band, and the new treaty, made later, has never given satisfaction. But the refractory Sioux are to blame for passing up a good thing when they had a cinch on it. The disturbance at Standing Rock does not interest the tribe here. On the Fort Tot ten reservation the Indians receiv^ no rations from the government, except on special occasions^ to relieve distress. All the Indians are citizens of the United States and exercise the franchise along with their paleface brethern. The O'Callaghans.

The railroad north, which has been under consideration for some time, has become a certainty, and it will not be long before it will be in full operation. The committee and Mr. McCollough met Satur J£ LCS Yon Can't Stop the Sun. This ad counts, girls. C. ttbil ,t51 W** &0*& $1.50 PER YEAR i' day and concluded the preliminary arrangements. The farmers are elated over their success, and are prepared to do all in their power to further the project. Only fifteen miles of road have so far been contracted for, but prospects are that it will be extended far-a ther. If the farmers are willing to' put up more later on, the road will be advanced accordingly. Grading frill commence imme diately after seeding is over, when the farmers will be given an op portunity to assist Fargo Mud. A St. Paul Dispatch man visited Fargo Sunday and has this to say concerning 'North Dakota's rich soil: "There is a peculiar quality about the muck to be found in the Red river valley. It is black, which is a good thing for the wheat crop, and has sticky quality that would make it good office paste, except for the color. Any man who gets any of it on his shoes never tries to pry it off, unless he is new at the business. The more approved way is to leave it alone and in course of two or three weeks it will wear off and in the meantime it protects the shoe from wear and tear. The Fargo people have sometimes thought of sending samples of it down to the navy department and suggesting the use of it for armor plate on our new battleships." Wait for the O'Callaghans.
