The eighty-fourth anniversary of
Od Fellowship was held in the
Methodist Episcopal church last Sun
day at 2:30 p. m. The service began
with a song by twenty girls of the
Junior league of the M. E. church
The music far the occasion was all
furnished by the Junior Epworth
league, and they did splendidly. The
scripture lesson was read by Rev.
Bloomfield of the Baptist church, and
prayer was offered by Rev. Higgins
of the Presbyterian church. The ad
dress was delivered by Rev. U. A
Foster, pastor of the M. E. church
and chaplain of the Odd Fellow lodge
of this city. His subject was the
motto of Odd Fellowship"Friend
ship, Love and Truth.'.' To say that
all who failed to attend this service
missed a treat is a mild statement.
The address was scholarly, thought
ful and eloquent in fact it was a
masterful effort on the part of Brother
Foster, who was at his best, and the
impression made and the lesson
taught by the address should have
heard by the entire population
of the city, and will ever be remem
bered by those who had the' pleasure
of listening to them. Brother Foster
has had some faithful experiences in
the principles of Odd Fellowship and
knows how best to express them.
_The -worst con flag-ration -that -ever
visited East Grand Forks broke out
yesterday morning at about 2:30 in the
saw mill of the Grand Forks Lumber
company, which was totally destroyed
together with 300 cords of wood and
500,000 feet of sawed lumber, a portion
of which was in the drying shed, and
the balance to the north of the mill,
where many of the heavier timbers
were run from the mill and there load
ed upon the cars to save the necessity
About 3:30 or 4 o'clock R. H. El
wood, who runs the Monarch elevator,
situated on the N. P. tracks, over half
mile from the fire, discovered a small
blaze about 50 feet up in the building.
The N. fire hose was laid but was
too short to give assistance. Chief
Munsey of the Grand Forks fire de
partment supplied additional hose but
before the connections were made it
was too late to save the dwelling of
Jerry Enright, which was situated
about 200 feet from the elevator, with
the wind blowing the sparks directly
over it. It was only by hard work that
this fine residence was saved, it hav
ing caught several times. The ele
vator was a total loss, and and with it
burned about 500 bushels of wheat and
as much flax, together with the coal
bins. This loss will not exceed $8,000
and it is thought to have been fully
insured by the company. Manager El
wood of the Monarch elevator savs
that the house will probably be rebuilt
in time to handle the next crop.G

Reception to New Mill Manage
ment Is Indefinitely
been held tomorrow afternoon has
been indefinitely postponed. Mr
Shevlin was in Sown this morning and
stated that it would be utterly impossi
ble to start the mill tomorrow, and it
was thought best to postpone the" re
ception until all arrangements are
completed at the mill.
Thos. Shevlin and Lieut. Gov.
Jones were in the city today and look
ed over the plant and report every
thing moving along line. The mill
will be running before the first of
May with a full complement of men.
The mill was started this morning
for the purpose of testing the machin
ery, but no attempt was made to work
to the full capacity.
Previous to a recent prize light held
at Virgina City Gov. Van Satit tele
phoned the mayor not to permit it to
be pulled off. The governor said he
would also instruct the sheriff of thetires
county to the same effect, but was as
sured by the mayor that it was not
necessary, and that he would see to it
that it was prevented. The governor
followed the mayor's advice, aud his
hands now seem to be tied. The at
torney general on investigating the
powers of the governor in removing
officials finds that although the gov
ernor can remove any county official
for neglect of duty,, against the mayor
of a city the governor is powerless.
Virginia is incorporated under the
general law, and it is questionable if
there is any manner in which he can
The governor could remove the
sheriff of the county, but the sheriff
can very well plead ignorance of the*
fight that he had no information of
it or instructions from the governor,
and that it was the^duty of the police
