Approves Holdings of Mixed Bloods
on White Earth Reservation.
Fargo. After completing investi
gations of the right of 2,000 mixed
bloods to affiliate with the Minnesota
band of Chippewas, Thomas G.
Shearman special attorney of the In
dian department at Washington, left
the White Earth Indian reservation.
Shearman's investigations into al
leged White Earth Indian land frauds
centered largely about the question of
when mixed bloods now holding prop
erty on the reservation moved to
According to Shearman's statement
of the case, the treaty of 1854 con
tained provisions allowing Chippewas
to move to Minnesota or to any sec
tion beyond the Mississippi river.
Shearman says his investigation show
ed that all mixed bloods on the White
Earth reservation moved to Minnesota
prior to the treaty of 1854, thus main
taining their right to the grant of
land holdings.
Approximately 2,000 mixed bloods,
each of whom has a quarter section
of land, are affected by Mr. Shear
man's decision. Briefs of the case
will be submitted to the secretary of
the interior during the next month.
Shearman says that unless the secre
tary makes an arbitrary ruling the
titles will remain clear.
Looking For Beer Thieves.
Bismarck.—The want of a drink of
beer may cause "Red" Garrett and
Joe Murray, local police characters,
to serve behind the prison bars. Both
of the men are at large but every ef
fort is being made to locate them.
Garrett and Murray became so
thirsty that they became desperate
and not being able to secure the brew
any place else to satisfy their crav
ings they broke into and entered a
Northern Pacific beer car which was
standing on the side track near the
freighthouse. After taking two kegs
out of the car they were frightened
from their work by a passerby. They
endeavored to make their getaway
around the corner of the car but Gar
rett was recognized before he could
get out of sight. The man who wit
nessed the act notified Chief of Po
lice McDonald of the robbery and he
at once started to work on the case.
He located Garrett last evening and
after he had confessed to the act he
was turned loose.
C. E. Batton, chief of the Northern
Pacific detectives, arrived on the
Bcene and swore out a warrant for
the man's arrest. A thorough search
of the city has been made by the of
ficers but neither Murray nor Garrett
can be located. Information was re
ceived by the chief stating that Gar
rett and Murray had "beat It" out of
town and the police of the nearby
towns were notified to keep a lookout
for the men.
Although the men did not get to
drink any of the precious fluid that
they had taken out of the. car, they
will have to face a serious charge
when arrested. The two kegs taken
out of the car were found under the
freight house platform and are assign
ed local parties.

8everal Hundreds of Dollars Spent
In the Triale Whleh Have
Been Famous.
Ryder.—North Dakota's very unique
and famous goat case reached a
summary end when Judge S. A. Ryold
took it out of the Jury's hands and dis
missed it
Because Peter Ramstad, a livery
man, had the rashness to buy a goat
three years ago and subsequently
failed to develop the sense of humor
which citizens say should be Inherent
in the owner of a billy goat, both
Ramstad and Fred Brendemuhl have
been in court for three years and now
find themselves confronted with bills
for legal advice and feeB amounting to
several hundreds dollars.
Ramstad paid $2.50 for the goat
three years ago. He kept It In, his
livery barn of nights. During the day
it browsed about among the tin cans
and other rubbish in the stable yard.
The liveryman was the butt of many
a Joke, but none actually laid hands
on the goat until Ramstad proved him
self incapable of appreciating his
friends' verbal Jibes.
Ramstad's friends then decided on
action. One night the goat was
slaughtered and made., into an excel
lent meaL The affair was intended
as a Joke on Ramstad, but the livery,
man's sense of humor failed to rise
to the occasion and he swore out war
rants for several persons he suspected
of being the offenders. One of those
whom he accused was Fred Brende
muhl, who was arrested and placed in
Ramstad failed to prove his case
and Brendemuhl brought action to re
cover $2,000 damages alleged to have
been sustained through false imprison
ment. Hearings, motions, demurrers,
counterclaims, testimony ,and argu
ments in the matter have consumed
three years.
Jumps Into Red River After Goodbye
is 8aid.
Grand Forks.—Bidding good-bye to
two boys seated on the banks of the
Red river, back of the Trepanier resi
dence on Fourth avenue, an unknown
man jumped from a rowboat in mid
stream and was drowned.
Bernie Couch, aged 12, son of Mr.
and Mrs. T. J. Couch, 615 Ninth ave
nue, and Robert Brunskill, 721 Wal
nut street, were the boys to whom the
unknown suicide spoke his last words.
They reported the affair to their par
ents, who in turn notified the city and
county officials, and this morning an
effort will be made to raise the body
of the suicide.
The boys tell stories coinciding with
each other. They were in the timber
near the river, when the man came
by them, stepping into a boat at the
edge of the river, and shoving it out
into the water.
As the boat reached a point near
the middle, the man rose from his
place, said his good-bye walking to
the end of the boat nearest the middle
of the stream, and jumped.
The boys didn't see him rise again.
According to one report given the
police authorities, the man had a rock
bound with a rope, one end of which
was tied about his neck.
The boys describe the man as ap
parently young, smooth faced, and
fairly well dressed.

It was little red spots at first, then
he would rub and scratch and water
blisters would form, and wherever the

John Burroughs Is well known as
one of the foremost of nature writers
in this country. Some time ago he
visited his brother, Eden Burroughs,
who lives In the Catskllls, at a place
called Hobart. The two brothers went
fox hunting together. The honor of
the hunt came to Eden, who shot the
only fox. It so happened that fox
skins were worth five dollars at that
time, and the successful Nimrod took
much pride In telling how he got the
better of the sage of Slabsides. Later,
in boasting to a few friends about it
in the presence of his brother, John,
he was interrupted by, "You have
bragged about that fox hunt long
enough. You shot the fox, sold the
skin and got five dollars. I wrote a
little account of the hunt, and got
$76 from the magazine which publish
