German Submarine
Sinks British Cruiser
London, Oct. 16.—The British cruiser Hawke, ac
cording to official information, has been sunk in the
North sea by a German submarine, with the loss of 350
men out of the Hawke's crew of 400.
The admiralty gave out the following announcement
concerning the loss of the Hawke:
"His majesty's ship, Theseua. Capt. Hugh Edwards,
was attacked by a submarine in the Northern waters of
North sea yesterday afternoon, but was missed* His
majesty*8 ship, Hawke, Capt. H. P. E. T. Williams, was
attacked at about the same time and was sunk.
"The following officers, with forty-nine members of
the crew have been landed at Aberdeen from a trawler8
"Boatswain Sydney Austin, Gunner James Dennis
and acting Gunner Harry Evitt. The remaining offi
cers and men are missing.
"Further particulars will be published as soon as
"'The Hawke was a cruiser built in 1889."
The Hawke is the same British cruiser which collided
with the White Star Liner Olympic, Sept. 20, 1911,
near Osborne bay, on the north side of the Isle of Wight.
She received serious damage at that time. While the
Hawke was laid down in June 1889, she was launched
at Chatham March 11, 1891. Among her officers at the
time she went down were eight naval cadets.
Other British warships lost since the outbreak of hos
tilities, are the cruiser Amphoin, sunk in the North sea
by a mine Aug- 6 the cruiser Pathfinder, torpedoed in
the North Sea, Sept. 10 the cruisers Abourkir, Hogue
and Cressy, sunk by a submmarine Sept. 22. The loss
of the Hawke makes a total of six British cruisers de
stroyed by Germany in the North sea since the begin
ning of the war.
This disaster follows by about three weeks the sink
ing in the north sea of theBritish cruisers Abourkir.
Hogue and Cressy. The vessels succomed to an at
tack of a German submmarine, and with them some
sixty officers and 1,400 men went to their deaths.
Tuesday Is Big
Day At Dickinson
Dickinson, Oct. 15.—Tuesday,
Oct. 20, has been fixed the day
of the biggest gala day ever
known in Dickinson or western
North Dakota. At Dickinson
next Tuesday there will be at
tractions which have never be
fore appeared on the same day
at the same place- namely, a base
ball gamie played by men who
are known as the world's great
est experts at the game an air
ship flight in a biplane guided by
a skilled airman a carnival of
amusements of a character not
often available, and a grand ball
in the evening will be the close
ing feature of this day of days,
at Dickinson only, October 20.
The several committees of cit
izens arranging for the big feaur
et of the day have their plans well
arranged, and pr.esent indica
tions are that everything will be
successfully performed as plan
ned- The baseball grounds are
in first class condition for the
game between the world famous
men, who play here under man
agement of Connie Mack, of the
Philadelphia Athletics who have
just concluded a series of games
for the world's championhip and
Frank Bancroft, of the Cincinnati
Reds National League team.
Additional seating capacity is be*
ing provided for the immense
crowd expected to be there to see
the game.
The aviator, Dr. Bell, has his
Curtis biplane tuned up for a per
formance in the air such as he is
noted for giving, and a provision
in his contract insures an exhibi
tion which, weather permitting,
will be not only sensational but
of sufficient duration to please ev
en those who have previously had
an opportunity to witness an air
hip flight, not many of whom are
residents in this section of the
United States, and those who fail
to come to Dickinson next Tues
day may never again have the
chance now offered them-
The location of Dickinson
most central in the west Missouri
river country, and the facilities
for reaching this city are better
than those enjoyed by other
points in this territOTy. That
Dickinson people recognized this
fact and arranged to have here
next Tuesday, Oct. 20, a collj
tion of attractions such as stated,
have never before appeared on
the same day at the same place,
vill surely be appreciated by the
people of the slope to the extent
that they will come to Dickinson
in great numbers that day, to be
welcomed and entertained on so
nusual an occasion.

Office of the President
St. Paul, Oct. 13. 1914.
Mrs. L. W. Richards,
Beach, N. D
Dear Madam:
Referring to our conversation
today, in thi matter of branch line
being built by this company
south from Beach, North Dakota.
I give you below copy of the
resolution adopted by the execu
tive committee of the Board of
Directors of the Northern Pacific
in New York, Septemberl, 1914:
"Resolved that this com
pany construct a branch line
extending from a connection
with the main line of the com
pany at Beach, in Golden Val
ley county. North Dakota, in
a southerly direction, crossing
over into the County of Fallon
in the state of Montana, and
extending to a point in said
Fallon county, Montana, about
twenty five miles southerly
from said Beach, North Dakota
The only counties through
which said branch will run are
Golden Valley county, North
Dakota, and Fallon county,
The authority for building this
branch was secured conditional
upon right-of-way being furnished
for same, and an arrangement
was made with the right-of-way
committee of Beach that such
right-of-way would be furnished.
Their part of the contract being
carried out. there is no question
about the terminus of the branch
line being at Beach, North Da
kota, and the construction being
completed in tit., a to move the
crop of 1915-

Beach, North Dakota.
Dear Sir:
Upon my return from New York, Mr. Cooper has
handed me correspondence had with our right-of-way
subscriptions, and I am somewhat surprised to hear
that there is any question as to the good faith of thi*
company and its intentions to lay the rails and operate
this branch.
Had the right-of-way been transferred to the com
pany a little more expeditiously, I feel that the grading
would have progressed more rapidly-
You can be assured, and can use this assurance for
the subscribers, that if the right-of-way is ready for the
graders, the railroad will be completed in time to handle
the crop of 1915. There is no doubt of any other ac
