John Evans, Commercial
Club Employe, Recalls
African Experiences.
Maintains That Same Meth
ods Used Against Boers
Are Succeeding Now.
The activities of the English army
and particularly of its general. Field
Marshal Sir John French, are being
followed with particular interest by
John Evans, a member of the Grand
Forks Commercial club force. Mr.
Evans' unusual interest is easily ac
counted for. He was a member of
the English army during the Boer war
'and for 329 days was with General
French, acting first as a galloper and
later as an advance scout in charge
of the right flank In patrol.
"I have been following General
French's activities in this war," Mr.
Evans said this morning, "and I find
that he is making- use of the same
{tactics that distinguished him in the
l&oer war.
"General French is a man of in
domitable will and unusual courage.
'As a general there is no better. He
'Is a fighter, of keen judgment, a strat
egist of the flrst rank, but, more than
i? -a 'y.&il
anything, a man that can get the most
'and the best out of his army.
"When not in action, General
French walks his army: but when in
action, he spares neither man nor
horse. While In it, war is business
to him, and every one working for
Jiim must give of his best.
"Stand Up and Fight."
"I remember once in his memorable
march from Orange river to Bloem
fonteln, while shells were bursting
over his head and bullets whizzing
ipaat his body, he went up to an artil
lery man and shouted: 'Stand up to
your gun and light If you have to be
•hot down, all right, but stand up and
Mr. Evans was in the Boer war for
two years and eight months. He Join
ed General French's forces at Orange
rtver, and for twenty-nine days was
a galloper for the officer in command.
He then was placed in charge of the
right flank In patrol, doing advance
acout work.
From Orange river General French
and his army crossed In pontoons over
to Zootpass drift, where they remain
ed until 10 o'clock at night. They
were given orders to concentrate at
Rammerfarm, which they reached at
midnight. General French then gave

them an hour's rest, after which they
resumed their march. When they
came to the Reid river General
French stood by and watched his
army cross. They moved to the top
of the hill on the other side, where
they camped for the night. At 9
o'clock the next morning, the army
was ready for an engagement.
From this place the army moved
to Jacobsvale, after which they left
for Drlefontein, where one of the big
engagements of the march occurred.
From Drlefontein they moved to
Paardersberg, where General Cronje
surrendered. Mr. Evans recalled a
forced march of 100 miles during
which they fought every Inch of the
ground. This happened before -they
reached Paardersberg.
From Paardersberg General French
and his army made their memorable
"relief of Kimberley." It was at the
latter place that French particularly
distinguished himself.
The medal with which Mr. Evans
was presented has the inscription of
the three great battles on this march
—Driefontein, Paardersberg and the
Relief of Kimberley.
After the relief of Kimberley Gen
eral French began his march to
Bloemfontein. They started a flying
four-day march, with rations for the
four days. The march lasted fourteen
days, however, and the army was
forced to get food any way possible.
A forced march was made to Croon
stad on the border of the Zuterland.
From here, they started to fight their
way to Johannesburg.
"General French and his army were
the flrst into every place," Mr. Evans
said. "We would have been flrst Into
Pretoria, but for the fact that Lord
Roberts gave orders to wait for him.
Keep at the Enemy.
"General French's pursuit of. the
Boers on that long march was won
derful. When he was engaging the
enemy, he never shakes them off. He
pursues them and fights them until a
decisive result is obtained
"My statements a.re being corrobor
ated in the present war. I read In
this morning's paper of a statement
Lord Kitchener made of General
French. When Kitchener said
French was one of the coolest generals
known, he spoke correctly."
Mr. Evans also came in contact
with Lord Kitchener in the Boer war.
He was commanding one of the forces.
Conversation With French.
While speaking of General French
this morning, Mr. Evans recalled a
conversation he had with the general.
After returning from a galloping
mission one day, General French said:
"What do you feed that horse of
"He eats the bark of the trees, sir,"
was Mr. Evans 'reply.
"What do you feed yourself?"
"Some bully beef and biscuits."
"Well, you both look rare and well
for having such rations," replied
General French. "I wish I had 8,000
more like you."

tion Gathered at K. C.
Hall Last Night.
Addresses Given by Promi
nent Lawyers of This and
Other States.
Attorneys and jurists from all parts
of North Dakota gathered together
last night in a spirit of good fellow
ship for the annual banquet of the
State Bar association which was held
at the Knights of Columbus hall.
Nearly 150 members of the organ
ization were present at the dinner,
which was served by 25 of the young
men of the city who volunteered their
services for the occasion.
The evening opened with a brief
reception, after which the guests ad
journed to the dining room. The
speakers were placed together at a
large table, and the other guests were
seated at small tables scattered about
the room.
Tracy R. Bangs acted as toastmas
ter. He first called on Attorney F. B.
Feetham of this city to welcome the
visiting attorneys to Grand Forks. Mr.
Feetham declared that the city was
delighted to see so many of the law
yers of the state, especially at this
time of the year, when he realized
that most of them were busy men.
He extended a hearty welcome to all.
After a few more remarks by Mr.
Bangs in which the toastmaster point
ed out some of the changes which had
taken place in the association since its
early days. Attorney F. T. Cuthbert
of Devils Lake was called on to speak
upon "The Lawyers and the Public."
Mr. Cuthbert deplored the growing
tendency on the part of young attor
neys to enter political life, saying a
lawyer could be of much greater serv
ice to the people in a private than
in a public capacity.
F. C. Massee of East Grand Forks
spoke briefly urging the attorneys to
get into closer touch with the peo
ple, who were, he declared, the orig
inal source of all study.
One of the most enjoyable addresses
of the evening was given by Dean W.
R. Vance of the law department of the
University of Minnesota. He discuss
ed a number of old English law cases,
in a humorous manner which kept the
guests in a roar of laughter.
President John Knauf of James
town told of the work of the Bar as
sociation in keeping young attorneys
on "the right track." He declared
that all of the 600 attorneys of the
state should be members of the organ
George F. Wells, the newly ap
pointed dean of the law department
of the state university, spoke on the
relation of law schools to the legal
He declared that students should
go out from college with good
ideas of their ethical relations with
brother lawyers, and the public gen
erally. It is the duty of the lawyer
he declared, to see that justice is
done, rather than make a mere at
tempt to win his case.
A .G. Divet of Wahpeton spoke brif
ly on "Excuses." He urged the at
torneys of the state to "get together"
as often as possible.
The necessity of teaching high
Ideals in the law schools was emphas
ized by Prof. H. L. Wilgus of the Uni
versity of Michigan. He declared that
the law students sent out from the
Wolverine institution are everywhere
upholding the honor of their state,
their school and the legal profession.
Abrey Lawrence of Fargo gave a
short address on "The Client Versus
the Lawyer." He urged the attorneys
to practice in their offices the ideals
which they preach before the world.
The final address of the evening was
given by Mr. Bangs. He declared that
right morals could not be secured by
legislation, but only by proper educa
tion, and urged the members of the
association to go out and train the
young attorneys in the proper man
ner. He said in conclusion that a
man who was honest with himself
would be honest with everybody.

Judge Buttz Wants Voca
tional Institution for De
pendent Children.
Jurist Insists Present Meth
od of Dealing With
Children Obsolete.
That the state of North Dakota
should establish two vocational schools
for the orphan boys and girls, was
the declaration made by Judge C. W.
Buttz this afternoon, in a stirring ad
dress before the members of the state
bar association on the subject of "The
Juvenile Court in North Dakota." He
suggested that some, of our present
institutions might' install systems for
the training of the children of the
juvenile court.
The speaker stated that a great
variety of children can be cared for
in this manner.- He said that these
schools could be easily organized with
out any extra expense by turning some
of the state schools over to this work.
Would Reducc Expenses.
He stated that the establishment
of such schools would reduce the ex
pense of the juvenile courts to the
nominal and would result in large sav
ings annually. The speaker declared
that the results in the conservation of
children would be beyond estimation.
Judge Buttz Is also very much in
favor of having special juvenile offi
cers appointed in' all parts of the state.
The state law of Jforth Dakota pro
vides for a board of visitors of six
persons, at least half of whom shall
be women, for each county. The board
is practically composed of volunteer
juvenile officers.
Is Big Problem.
Judge Buttz dp&ared further that
the problems o?vingMuvenile court In
North Dakota akSfsfe problems of a
thinly populated^lJfural agricultural
community. He flid that no effort
has been made yet to develop this
court in the rural communities, but
that this is our real problem.
He declared that from the stand
point of humanity, the betterment of
the race, of good citizenship, and of
the lessening of crime in the future,
he Is oonvinced that the establishment
of a juvenile court is an important
matter. He stated that the establish
ment and development of such a couTt
marks the most important epoch in
the development of jurisprudence dur
ing the present generation.
Great Preventative.
The speaker said that the juvenile
court banishes the work of the crim
inal courts with the children. It la
not only a remedy, he declared, but it
is also a preventative.
