An argument was made by counsel in
the Icelandic church issue at Grand
Forks last week for the re-opening of
the case on the ground that there was
a mistake in the assumption of Judge
Templeton that a certain numbered sec
tion of the constitution of the local
church had been repealed, though it so
appeared in the evidence. As this
clause of the constitution was the prin
cipal foundation for the decision given, a
rehearing might therefore cause a
change in the previous judgment.
Attorney Laxdal was in the city Mor.
day night on business connected with
the application for pardon of a man
named Flint who lived near Drayton
and was sent to the penitentiary for
twenty years for rape. This is the
least sentence allowed under the terms
of the law, bnt as there are extenuating
circumstances, those who are acquainted
with the particulars think that the sen
tence should be changed to five years
whieh would allow his liberation in Au
gust of this year.
Flocks of wild pigeons have recently
been seen in this vicinity, and old tim
ers say th»y are the genuine articli.
These birds were very numerous at one
time, but quite suddenly disappeared,
and the pigeon has been lost track of
for many years. Probably these here
now are only forerunners to get the lay
of the land and investigate prospects for
a big immigration. They should receive
every encouragement to multiply in this
land of promise, and "gunnstera" ought
not to waste ammunition in the destruc
tion of these birds.—Emerson Journal.

Good-bye Teachers.
All the local stalf of teachers will be
leaving tomorrow or next day for their
homes to enjoy their vacations. The
good wishes of all our citizens will go
with them. Prof. Fitch expects to go
on Sunday to Minneapolis, Miss Simp
son, Sunday morning to Fairmont,
Minn., Miss Lyon, Saturday, Hastings,
Minn. Miss McGovern, Saturday, Ro
chester, Minn. Miss Hegland, Grafton,
N. D. Miss Nicolai, Sunday, Monti video,
Minn. Miss Dutcher, Saturday, Hull
man, Minn. All the above teachers are
re-engaged except Prof. Fitch, who goes
to Cass Lake, Minn, and Miss Hegland
—but that is only a story told by the
little birds and not a newspaper item.
Miss Hegland has been connected
with our public schools for two years
and has given almost perfect satisfac
tion, while socially she has been very
popular. Many friends will give her
good wishes and hope that at least in
the future that she will sometimes re
new the pleasant acquaintances made
while here.
Prof. Fitch who has been with us for
three years has proven, not only popular
with his pupils but also in social circles
and his leaving is a source of sincere re
gret to the townspeople. Probably, we
have never had a man in town who is so
well informed generally, on almost every
conceivable subject as Prof. Fitch. He
speaks and writes several languages, he
has been considerable of a traveller, has
a large acquaintance in literature and
art, while on the other hand when the
manual training was introduced in the
schools, he went into the workshops and
taught the boys how to use their tools
like a trained mechanic, and he can tie
more kinds of knots in a rope than thia
writer who served seven years as a
salior. We can recommend him to the
Cass Lake people, not only as a most ex
cellent teacher but also as a distinct ad
dition to the social and literary circles
of that city.

The ball team fiom

run down to Drayton" last Friday and
succeeded in winning a very interesting
game, 7 to 3. On account of the heavy
rain which tell early in the morning, it
was difficult to play any fast ball.
The Drayton boys started with'a rush
and pushed three runs over the pan in
the first inning, but timely hitting Boon

Memorial Day.
Tuesday, Memorial Day, it rained
about all day. Not hard but "just as ea
sy." Of course this prevented most of
the outdoor program from being carried
However, after dinner, the veterans
headed by the band and escorted by the
boy scouts, school children and citizens,
marched to the Pembina bridge where
with a brief explanation of the meaning
of the "decoration of the waters" by the
commander, the floral gifts were cast in
to the current which will carry the per
fume of the flowers as symbolical of the
fragrant memories of the sailor dead,
through the long journey northward un
til it "joins the waters that form the
greatest and most beautiful cemetery of
the world.
Then the procession passed to the de
pot, where the veterans and a small dele
gation of the school girls, were taken to
the cemetery by team, where all graves
of veterans and sons of veteans, about
fifteen in number, were duly decorated
with flowers and with the flags of the
country which they so greatly loved,
while gentle tears dropped over all from
the funeral skies above.
In the evening the City Hall was well
tilled to listen to the program which was
as follows
Invocation Rev. Campbell.
"Glory Hallelujah"—Choir.
Ritual, G. A. Comrade Burdick
"Star Spangled Banner".. .Mrs. Feld
Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.. ..Miss
Rhotia Harvey.
Song, '-Tenting to-night" Choir.
Oration Prof. E.T. Fitch.
The uiusic by the mixed voices of the
choir was greatly appreciated, while the
solo by Mrs. Feldman, like her many
kindly favors on similar local occasions,
was a distinct addition to the program.1
Miss Harvey's rendition of the Gettys
burg address showed study of that beau
tiful prose poem and was given with
ear enunciation.
Prof. Fitch's oration was mostly a
brief epitome of the causes of the war
and a very eloquent description of tLe
scenes incident to the leave-takings
when the boys left home for the front.
His tribute to the memory of those who
died that the nation might live was
couched in words of beauty and appre
ciation. The speaker held the close at
tention of the whole audience including
the many little folks who were present,
to the very end. We hear many favor
able comments on the address from those
who were present.
There were four veterans on the stage
Comrade Sonderman. 1st Minnesota Vol
unteers, Comrade Burdick, 37th Wiscon
sin, Cotrrade My rick, scout in Sioux re
bellion Comrade Wardwell, U. S. Navy.
Prof. Fitch's father was a member of
the same company with Comrade Bur
Memorial day is every year becoming
more and more a day for the living rath
er than a day for the dead. Even the
few gray-haired veterans who live can
now only point backward to the fifty
yean that have passed they know they
cannot participate in the fifty years to
come, but they realize even the more
keenly from this that it is for the living
"to more highly resolve each Memorial
Day of the present and in the future,
that the government of the people, by
the people, and for the people shall not
perish from the earth."
