A Change of Ownership J. P. Reeve Now Proprietor of the Meat Market and Grocery Business Formerly Owned by ,J. C. Gile. A deal was consumated last Saturday whereby J. P. fteeve became the owner of the market and grocery business, to gether with the slaughter house, feed yards and' land formerly owned and operated by J. C. Gile, one, of the pioneer mer chants of this city. Mr. Reeve is one of the big farmers of the north country and last year started the manufac ture and put upon the market a brand of sausage known as the "J. P." brand, or in other words, just pig sausage, from which he gained a state wide reputation. This particular brand of sauAe will be on sale at the market on ly three days of each week, as the outside demand is of such volume that it is considerable ot a task to make the supply equal the demand. The other business interests of Mr. Reeve demands his atten tion and he has placed M. D. Sarver in charge of the business in Beach and with an &ble corps of assistance will endeavor to win first place in the state on the sanitary conditions of his shop and products when examined by the pure food inspectors. He took charge of the business last Monday morning. We have not learned ju3t what Mr. Gile will do, but it is very probable that he will con tinue the raising of stock with l^.is son at the ranch just west of the Cedar pest office in Mon tana.

The Help of Farmers Needed An Effort Will Be Made to Have a County Exhibit at the Big Exposition at Bismarck. A state exposition will prob ably be held at Bismarck during October of this year and Golden Valley county should be repre sented. Plans are under way to repre sent our county there and to do so it will be necessary to have the best possible samples of our county's products for exhibition. Therefore, we appeal to you, Mr. Farmer, to save the best you have in the following: Wheat, oats, flax, barley, rye, both spring and winter, spelts, corn, alfalfa, millet, clover, both sweet and red top, bromus, any other tame or wild grasses, and a good line of vegetables of all kinds. Also as many nice varieties of potatoes as possible. It is hoped that an excellent exhibit can be made, showing the resources and advantages of Golden Valley county, and with as little expense as possible. To do this will require the combin ed efforts and interest of every one in the county. Let us. have your help, farmers. Begin right now to save the best you have and out of the entire (ot we will be able to put up a display that everyone in the county will be proud of. All sheaf grain bundles should be at least ten inches in circum ference where tied below the heads. All threshed grain should be in peck lots. Vegetables should be in half dozen lots and potatoes should be in peck lots. This is necessary as the judges do not consider less in quantities and measurements than is above stated. Bring your sample to J. B. Slosson, secretary of the Beach Commercial club, at his office in the Golden West Investment Co. building, Beach. Any products will be greatly appreciated and we need your help to make this one of the best exhibits Golden Valley county has ever made. Don't put it off. Commence right now to save out samples of your best and your interest and assistance will be greatly appreciated. New York to Seattle Auto Trail Making a Red Trail From Coast to Coast With a Bessemer Au to Truck—In Beach Last Tuesday. Last Tuesday afternoon Carl Pfahler and Fred Brainerd ar rived in Beach as trail blaizers from New Yoyk to Seattle. They started, however, from Grove City, Pa., in which the Bessemer auto truck, which machine they are using to make the trip in, is manufactured. When they ar rived in Beach the speedometer registered 3,841 miles. They also record the distance between cities enroute. The coast to coast trail is in dicated by a red band with white above and below. Where just the bands appear it indicated straight ahead. At places where it is possible to leave the trail for some other road, a sign is!tpublish .. placed. A red "R" surround- J* ed by white indicated that you]™^* should turn to the right, "L" to the left, "X" a railroad crossing is near or some other dangerous place in the road, and the three bands straight ahead as stated above. As near as we can learn the Northwest Trail has been used from the Twin Cities to this point. The party left New York on June 1st and expect to be in Seattle not later than September 1st. A BAD LAND TRIP On Tuesday morning of this week a party composed of W. A. Sprague as chief of scouts, Judge Frank Fitzgerald as peace adjuster, Charles Elliott as chief forager. Earl Sprague as the nec essary adjunct, and Will and Jabe Stonehouse, recently ar rived from Detroit, Mich., and to some extent representatives of the "tenderfoot," left Spra gue's ranch last Tuesday morning for a week's outing in the bad lands in the vicinity of Glendive "k and the Powder river. The ar:, re all supposed to make the trip on saddle horses, but from what we know of some of them we don't believe many miles will have been traversed before they will be increasing the load of the team which is draw ing the grub wagon. There is little doubt but what the trip will be greatly enjoyed by all, even though the first few days will develop many sore spots on those not accustomed to the sad dle. NEW LAWYER FOR BEACH. John L. Koeppler of Waphe ton, N. Dak., arrived in Beach last Saturday to make his per manent residence and has open ed a lawyer's office in the rooms over Power's Clothing store. Mr. Koeppler took his degrees at Washington, D. C., and came to North Dakota some two years ago, forming a connection with Judge Laudr of 'Wapheton, where he has been very success ful in his chosen profession. He comes to Beach highly spoken of by those who know him best and that he has gained sofmething of a reputation over the state is at tested by the fact that he has been chosen as the Socialist can didate for the position of attor ney general. John Tatley, one of the large fartners of the Ollie terri tory. was a Beach visitor on Wed nesday of this week. Have you heard of "Lucille Love," the girl of mystery. Meet her at the new Bijou theatre. adv. Beach, N. D., Aug. 1914. Mr. R. O. Zollinger, Editor Beach Advance. In a recent issue of the Beach Advance I find myself classed as a "eunuch" and I wish to state for the benefit of the android who wrote the article, that I am neither a "eunuch" nor of the Turk family. 1 have been mar ried for the past eighteen years and lived Jn perfect happiness and harmony and I invte Mr. Zollinger, or any of his staff, to search my record, here or in my former location, San Francisco, California. I have been libeled in the Advance before and now feel in justice to myself to show Mr. Zollinger and the Beach Ad vance, his and its mistakes. It must be that the Advance editor is ignorant of the teikn "eunuch" or he would find that it could be more appropriatley applied to himself, judging from recent events in the Advance editor's life. If one would look back over some of the publications in the Advance the "eunuch" would suffer by the comparison. It has also been published in your paper that I am one of the May or's "Pretended" police. I have this much to say with regard to that statement I am Mayor Brin ton's appointee and so will re main and perform my duties as such until he sees fit to relieve me of that responsibility, irre spective of the Beach Advance or some of the City Council whom I have been informed made the boast that "they would starve Smith and his family out." And right here let me offer an other little suggesetion: That is they have over looked the stay ing qualities of Smith and his family. A kindly and generous boast, gentlemen of the council, but hardly worthy of a loyal cit izen of this beautiful, God-given country of ours. I ask that you this communication for bene fi* °f fk- ri,U "f fo Beach and the public at large. myske,f. a"d fami,yi BrJn£n' *£?. c,*z,ens of S. A. SMITH. ALDERMAN LOVELL FAILS TO PROVE OFFICIAL STATEMENTS. At the July meeting of the city council, Mark Lovell went on record, officially, stating rea sons why the writer should not be city auditor. His objections were as follows: Haigh is not a man of independent action. Lov ell then followed this statement up by the following explanation: 1 mean that Haigh will be dic tated to in the official duties of his office by others. The mayor then asked Lovell to let the rec ords show that he was to furnish th^ procf 'to his statements at the next meeting of the council. Lovell spent his own time and his 'money, and his agents time and their money, burning up gasoline, and lubricating oil, scouring the country for affida vits against the writer. Lovell sent his agents out to D. J. Stein er's farm in the hopes that they would talk Mr. Steiner into mak ing the desired affidavit as, Fred Near told Lovell or his agents that Mr. Steiner and I had some little differences in a business transaction some years ago, but the learned and educated alder man, or his agents, met with a reversal at Mr. Steiner's hands. Mr. Steiner instead asked Lovell, or his agents, why they did not confirm me, and further stated New Theatre To Open The Bijuo Theatre which is being fitted up in the Whitney building by Clifford G. Smith will open and give its first per formance next week, Wednesday night, August 1$*h. The new show house is a cred it to Beach, Mr. Whitney having enlarged his building and fitted it up on the inside especially for a moving picture theatre, and as a show house. Mr. Smith, the proprietor of the new show, stated to the Chronicle that he would give two performances each night, and four changes of pro gram a week and the admission will be the usual 10c and 15c. The new theatre's announcement appears elsewhere in tlus issue. OBITUARY Mrs. Martha M.

Lovell and his ilk then sent their agents to Yates, Mont., so 1 am told, in the hope that they would get affidavits to the ef fect that I had been intoxicated there. Again they failed not be ing able to procure any such affi davits. Mathison was sent out on the fir ing line. Mathison got Gugolz in to his automobile and told him he would take him to see some party that Mr. Gugolz wished to see on some business matter, but instead the learned Al derman Mathison, run his car up along side of the First Na tional bank where he pleaded long with Mr. Gugolz trying to get him to go up into Gallagher's office and give his affidavit to Gallagher against me, where we all know that Gallagher was in waiting, and would have been more than pleased, if he could have had the pleasure to write an affidavit against me had Mr. Gugolz given it, but he would not. 1 could keep right on telling you of many others they tried to get affidavits from but failed. They did get two affidavits that don't amount to anything, are net worthy of mention. They have no tendency to prove Lov ell* statdment, as 1 will tell you that in order to prove his state ment, he must prove that my convictions are not my own. He next sent his agents to pro cure an affidavit from one Hen ry Gugolz, and again at the hands of Mr. Gulogz they were turn ed down. But not being satisfied with his first attempt. Alderman I inade from pure gold mined by I wish to .inform any of you who were present at a council meeting on the night that Lovell was acting clerk when Heath came in and told Lovell there was a phone call for him that Lovell did net go to any phone but was met by GallagAei- or some of his agents in (he Heath hotel and was quickly taken into a back room in the hotel where lie (Lovell) was supplied at the hands of Gallagher or one of his agents with written instructions, which Lovell very readily ac cepted, instructing him how to steam roll the council meeting over the Mayor's head, which he attempted to do. If this ivory headed alderman, Lovell, had one-half a mind of his own, he would have told Gallagher, or his agent, that he did not want their dictation as to how he should act in his official duty, and that he was competent of handling the business of the city as an alderman, without any dic tation from Gallagher or any other person. I expect the all wise alderman will deny the above statements, but if you will come to me I will furnish, you the proof for every state ment I have made about this, and proof that is reliable. I wish to say in defense of the ivory headed alderman's charges against me, that if ever I listen to dictation in the capacity of any official duty, as a majority of the members of the present city council have done since taking their oath of office, I hope to have better judgment than to raise this uncalled for and un reasonable question against oth ers, as has the educated alder man, Mark Lovell, JAMES A. HAIGH. of aenemic conditions of the blood, after an illness covering several years. She was born at Ontanonogan, Wis., May 23, 1854, and was therefore 69 years of age on her last birthday. Her early life was spent in Wisconsin and Illinois, but she was married to Thomas Elliott in Kansas in November, 1874. Four children, George and Charolotte, of Beach Allen of Enderlin, and Mrs. Harve Robinson, of Sentinel Butte, N. Dak., survive of her immediate family, besides her father, John Corser, and two sisters, Mes dames H* Gilbertson and G. H. Hopkins, all of Battle Lake, Minn. Funeral services were held at the home of her son in Beach at 1 1 o'clock on Tuesday morning. Rev. Burns of the Sentinel Butte Congregational church officia ting. The remains were taken to Battle Lake, Minn., for inter taent and were accompanied by her son George. Mrs. Elliott had lived in this state about three years, coming to Beach to make her home with her son George ten months ago. Her ailment was of such long standing that she welcomed death as a relief from her suffer ing*. She was always a devoted wife and mother, kindness and unselfiEhniess being .her strong epst characteristics. Her child ren are extended sincere sym pathy in their great loss. UNIQUE PRESENTS. On Tuesday of this week Mr. and Mrs. R. E. Walker of this city received unique and much appreciated presents from Mrs. Walker's father, who is a resident of Tokeen, Alaska. The pres ents were rings, one for each, E. H. Garlick, Mrs. Walker's father. They were hand engrav ed and had a minature miner's cabin at the top of the ring, while on each side a nugget of pure gold, supposed to be just as they were taken from the mine, and underneath was the word "Alaska." The fact that they are pure gold renders them soft and very easily marred. Mr. Garlick has been in Alaska for eighteen years. Will Publish North Dak. Code Copyright Will be Given to Pub lishing Firm and Will Not be Held by State. A representative of the Law yers Co-Operative Company, of Rochester, N. Y., is in the city looking after the publication of the codes. The last legislature passed a law ordering the secre tary of state to contract with this company for the publicaion of the new codes, with annotations. This law will be found in the Session Laws of 1913, Chapter i97. This same law requires the secretary of state to copyright the code, but the attorney general holds that the state has no interest in the matter, hence, it is not nec essary for the secretary of state to secure the copyright. The Lawyers Co-Operative company desires "to have the copyright themselves, hence Secretary Hall acting on the advice of the attor ney general, will not have the code copyrighted. This decision and action is based cn the fact that the state has no interest in the sale of the code, and inasmuch as this com pany makes a specialty of edit ing such works, and of printing the same, there will be nothing wrong in allowing them to have the copyright. The laws cannot be copyrighted, and the annota tions which are made by the pub lishing company really belong to them. It is held by those in close touch with these matters that the code should not be printed at this time, inasmuch as the pro bate code will in all probability be revised by the next legisla ture. As it is, the present pro bate code is a badly Complicated and confusing mass of laws. Gov ernor Burke at one time appoint ed a commission to revise the probate code. This commission produced what is said to be one of the best probate codes in the United States. This revision was presented to the last legislature, but for some reason, it was pass ed over to the coming session. Now if the present laws are printed into a code, with all the old probate laws, and the new cede is then adopted, which is Imperative, a new code will soon have to be issued. The new code will necessarily have to be made into two vol umes then there will be the new probate laws and the session laws of 1915, hence all lawyers, or others will be compelled to buy four books. The matter has caused consid erable discussion among those giving attention to such matters. M. E. CHURCH. Regular preaching service next Sunday morning at the church. There will be a street meeting of the young people at the same time as last Sunday, after which they will go to the Y. P. S. C. E. at the Congregational church. All are invited to at tend.

Wholesale Ar- rests Made Sat'yl^- T^- Mayor Brinton and Four SUce- men Placed Under Arrest on For Warrant. Approved by the State's Attorney Unlawful Arrest of John Jepson is Com- wholesale business last Saturday I when Mayor Brinton and three f,"kin? policemen, S. A. Smith. H. G. I Bennett and Wm. Neavles were liceman Haigh on a charge of re sisting an officer. The first were arrested on the complaint of John Jepson and the latter on the complaint of John Madison. Mr. Haigh immediately waived examination to the district court and was placed under bonds by Plomasen to appear at that time to answer to the charge. Mayor Brinton asked for a hearing and his case was set for Tuesday at which time he took a change of venue and the hearing being held today before Jus tice Rosenberg. S. A. Smith, H. G. Bennett and Wm. Neavles took a change of venue also and were given a hearing on Wednesday before Rosenberg who dismissed Mr. Bennett and bound Messrs. Smith and Neavles over to the district court. fust how these men are liable for the actions of the mayor is not known at this time, as the attorneys for the policemen pro duced the law and supreme court decisions showing clearly that they are not liable, while Attys. Gallagher, Jefferson and Haliiday, who represented the county in the prosecutions, pro duced no law of any kind to show that they were. Ijt seems to be nothing more than a con tinuation of past tactics to em barrass, intimidate and put the policemen to a lot of trouble in an effort to get them to with draw, and just why Justice Rosenberg should endorse such legal procedure is causing no little comment among those who heretofore believed that he had no affiliation with the workings of the gang. Mayor Brinton made the ar rests personally, n.nd, if he is guilty of any offense in making the arrest, the citizens who as sisted him, under his orders, are not liable and a case cannot be sustained against them, as every citizen is guilty of a misdemeanor who refused to assist the mayor in 'making an arrest. Bennett was dismissed, accord ing to the court's view of the matter, because he did not lay hands upon Mr. Jepson, accord ing to the complaining witnesses own testimony. LADIES' MASS MEETING. The ladies of Beach will hold a mass meeting at the U. B. church next Friday afternoon at 2:30, August 21, and all women interested in the schools are re quested to be present.

German Lutheran services will be held next Sunday, August 16th, at 10:30 o'clock. Jacob F. M. Essig, Pastor. COUNCIL* MEETING. The city council held an ad journed meeting last week Fri day night at which time Alder man Lovell read his complaint or charges against James Haigh as city auditor. The charges were filed in writing upon sta tionery of Keohane, Gallagher & Jones, and were in the form of two affidavits, one signed by W. B. Vaughn and the other by Axel Nelson. The first com plained of having been defraud ed by Mr. Haigh in the erection of a building, but the matter had heretofore been threshed out in court and the jury decided in favor of Mr. Haigh and rendered a judgment against Mr. Vaughn. The second complained of being defrauded in a real estate trans action. Mr. Lovell had charged Mr. Haigh of not being a man of "independent action" and the affidavits filed having no bear ing on the charges, and being questionable instruments the mayor refused to consider them and again asked for the confir mation of S. A. Smith as chief of police and James Haigh as auditor. The appointments were again voted down by the "solid five," all being present.

Msr. Woodrow Wilson, !wife of the President of the United States, passed away in Wash ington city at five o'clock last Thursday afternoon after four months of almost unbroken ill ness. The end is said to have come calmly and peacefully to the first lady of the land, sur rounded as she was by her hus band, 'her thred daughters and other relatives who had been summoned when it was thought the end was near. A cdmplication of nervous ailments and Bright's disease was the cause of Mrs. Wilson's death, the ailments during her protracted illness having com pletely sapped her vitality Her frail constitution, drained by months of never-tending illness, was unable to withstand the battle. During the last hours, con scious only at intervals, Mrs. Wilson had been cheerful and had called constantly for her husband. Every moment that could be spared from urgent official duties were devoted by the president to his wife. The funeral of Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, who died Thursday of last week, was held from the White House Monday 'morning. Both the Senate and the house of represenatives were closed and all public activity suspend ed. The services were very sim ple. The Presbyterian ritual, prayers and scriptural reading being all. Only the members of the Wilson family, the families of the cabinet members, and the members of the senate and house special committees were permitted to attend the services. The body was taken to Rome, Ga., and buried at the Myrtle Hill cemetary Tuesday after noon. President Wilson took per sonal charge of the final ar rangements for his wife'3 fun neral, and steeled himself against his grief. Every effort was made to maintain the privacy of the family and to conduct the fun eral as nearly as possible as if the president were a private citizen. *GLENDIVE INDEPENDENT Misses Alice and Catherine McNiece arrived in the city a few days ago from their home at Beach. G. T. Davis, the Beach busi ness man, Was Calling On local friends the middle of the week. Miss Anna Nix arrived in the city the fore part of the week from her home at Beach.
