Vessels Cleared Last Night
For Invasion of Neigh
boring Country.
Remaining Boats Believed to
be Cruising Gaily Down
the Roaring Red.
The Grand Forks "navy" started on
an unexpected cruise Friday night, and
ao far as could be learned this after
noon several ot the vessels thereof are
still cruising.
In other words, the jrnvernment
dredge and grain barges moored just
below the Northern Pacl lie railway
bridge broke away laet night and were
carried down with the current.
The dredge and one of the barges
ran aground near St. Michael's hos
pital, but the other barges, which are
owned by a Duluth grain firm, con
tinued to glide gailly down stream.
No word regarding them has as yet
been received here, and it is probable
that they are well on their way
towards the Canadian border.
Mayor Dinnie is reported to lie con
sidering sending a note to the Cana
dian authorities explaining that the
launching of this formidable squadron
against the defenseless border of Can
ada is not intended as a breach of

Chicago, April 10.—Judge Carpen
ter of the federal district court denied
the injunction restraining the annual
meeting of the Chicago Rock Island
and Pacific railroad from being held
here Monday.
Application was filed yesterday by
the minority stockholders, who assert
ed that they had been hindered in the
attempts to gain proxies.
Denver, Col., April 10.—The Color
ado legislature will adjourn at mid
night tonight.
When this date was decided on by
joint resolution, one Denver afternoon
paper cartooned the public dancing
for joy and shouting: "Three Rous
ing Cheers." All thie was under the
heading. "Oh, Glory, legislature end
April 10 and Let Us All Arise and
Rejoice." Another afternon paper's
head was: "Cheer, Brother, Cheer!"
The cause of this hilarity was the
legislature's alleged "no-nothing" rec
ord. Up to the eleventh hour of the
session it had passed only one im
portant bill, the measure carrying out
the people's referendum mandate that
Colorado ehall be saloonless after Jan
1. 1916.
Juneau, Alaska, April 10.—The
Alaska senate yesterday passed a bill
submitting territorial prohibition to
the voters. If they approve prohibi
tion, it will become effective Jan. 1.

Visions of a Carnegie medal
glimmered brightly before the
imagination of Patrolman George
Viken for a few moments at noon
Then the glimmer was rudely
Mr. Viken MILS occupying liis
usual post at Third street and Do
Mers avenue when Ills attention
was en light by' loud shouts from
the direction of the remains of
the bridge.
"Come quick, there's a boy
floating down the river on a
chunk of Ice." These were the
words which galvanized the pa
trolman into instantaneous move
Mr. Viken didn't hesitate.

as breathless, but heroic, he
readied the bridge.
The man who had called looked
at the patrolman sheepishly. "By
gosh, old man. I'm sorry," lie
murmured. "The fact Is. I made
a mistake. There was a log of
wood on that ice chunk an' I
thought it was a kid."
"Are yon sure It Isn't a part of
your cranium?" demanded Mr.
Viken, a« lie turned disgustedly
to go back to his post.

college of liberal arte of the Univer
sity of North Dakota, now president
of the Idaho university, will remain
as head of that institution, according
to word received from the western in
The Idaho university board of re
gents refused to accept Mr. Brannon'*
resignation, which was filed with the
board when the legislature made pro
vision for the reduction of the salary
of the president from $6,000 a year
to $5,000.
President Brannon held a contract
with the board of regents calling for
a $6,000 salary, and his resignation
was tendered for the purpose of re
lieving the board of any embarrass
ment growing out of the condition.
News stories from Idaho seem to
evidence the fact that President Bran
non, in the single year that he has
been at the head of the institution,
has created an unusually friendly feel
ing toward himself. This was evi
denced in several ways—through the
support tendered him by the students,
and through the support given him
by the Moscow Chamber of Com

Funeral Services for Thomas
Walsh Held at St. Mich
ael's Church.
Father O'Driscoll Pays Elo
quent Tribute to the
St. Michael's Catholic pro-cathedral
was the scene of an Impressive cere
mony this morning when the last rites
were held for Thomas Walsh, pioneer
resident of Grand Forks, who died
last Thursday afternoon.
The church was filled with residents
of the city who had gathered to pay
the last tribute of respect to the'city's
founder. All of the city and county
offices were closed during the funeral
and the officials were well represented.
Rev. Father M. J. O'Driscoll of St.
Mary's Catholic parish, celebrated re
quiem high mass and delivered an ad
dress, his topic being "Life and
The coffin was draped with the
American flag, and was borne by D.
M. Holmes, Stephen Collins, W. L.
Wjlder, M. J. Moran, Don McDonald
and Phil McLoughlin. The honorary
pallbearers were C. L. Graber, F. J.
Peck, A. J. Pierce, L. K. Raymond, A.
S. Burrows and R. S. Robblns.
Father O'Drlscoll's address was
most Impressive. In the first part of
the sermon the speaker emphasized
the position that man held in the
world and the position that the Cre
ator intended that he should hold.
"The Great Creator gave, to man
kind everything. He made man mas
ter of the streams and fields and gave
him dominion over the beasts and in
return he has merely asked him to
obey His laws."
In conclusion the speaker paid an
eloquent tribute to the early pioneers
who braved the storms, cleared the
forests and paved ttye way for the
hundreds of thousands of people who
enjoy the prosperity of Dakota pra
iries today.
"It makes little difference," the
speaker said, "what your faith is, be
cause I see men of all faiths gathered
in this audience this morning to pay
their last respects to a splendid citi
zen, a grand old man and a noble war
"There he lies wrapped In the
shades of the flag he offered his life
to protect and for which he bled on
the battlefield. It Is well to recall the
services of this noble life this morn
ing, no higher tribute can be paid to
any man after the angel of death has
touched his lips and sealed them with
her wand, than to say that he lived
a life of service. You do well to hon
or the memory of such a man.
"You do well to gather at his bier
and pay your last respects and follow
the remains to their last resting place.
We love him and honor him because
he fought and bled that this country
might be free a,nd the people might
enjoy the greatest' liberty of any peo
ple on earth."
Practice of Starting Bonfires on
Windy Days Must Cease, Declares
John Fitzgerald.
Unless some of the residents of
Grand Forks discontinue their prac
tice of starting fires on windy days,
there will be "something doing," ac
cording to Chief John Fitzgerald of
the fire department.
"The city ordinances expresslv for
bid starting fires under such circum
stances," said the chief, "and yet I
liave noticed a large number of fires
around the city today.
"If the practice is continued arrests
will be made."
