IT MAY NEVER BE SOLVED
My»t«ry Surrounding the Death of an
The finding of the bleached bones
qf a man and his horse and the
MmsantB of a saddle at a point
In the extreme northwestern part of
the stale furnishes a mystery which
the authorities may never ba able to
solve.
About two weeks before the finding
of the bones the members of a thresh
ing crew on the North Dakota side of
the boundary line were surprised when
a man rode up to them in the gloom
of a rainy evening and inquired the
right trail to the bad lands. He was
8)ven the information, but was denied
the privilege of remaining over night
with the crew, as they were unable
to provide the necessary bedding.
However, the stranger visited with
them for a time and then secured
lodging for the night at a farmhouse
In the vicinity. From remarks dropped
during the time the stranger visited
the threshers they understood his
name to be Schilling. The next morn
ing the stranger disappeared, riding
southward on a bay horse.
The visit of the stranger had al
most been forgotten by the threshers
when a cowboy appeared at their
camp and told them of the finding,
north of the Black Hills, of the bones
of a man and horse. At the time ot
the visit the stranger was unarmed.
The theory has been advanced that
he and his horse were attacked and
killed by wolves, but frontiersmen
ridicule this theory.
ThoBe who have attempted to solve
the mystery believe he was trailed
through the wilderness by some hu
man prowler and assassinated for the
money he possessed. Then, in order
to cover up the crime, the murderer
removed and destroyed the clothing
of the dead man, not a vestige of
which remained.

COMPLAINT BY COMMISSION
Discrimination Alleged In Railroad
Freight Rates.
The state railroad commission has
filed a complaint with the inter

that the freight rates from South Da

J'flax, millet, wheat, corn, rye, oats and
barley, as compared with the rates on
-'-i-Sthe same commodities from North Da
kota points of equnl distance to the)
markets, are unreasonable and ex
cessive, and that the proposed ad
vance rates amount to an increase
'of from one-half cent to two cents a
hundred.
The commission asks that after due
hearing on the said complaint an or
der be Issued commanding the defend
ants to refrain from putting into effect

HOMESTAKE MINE CAVES IN
BUst Causes Hole in the Heart of the
City of Lead.
The firing of a blast in the famous
Homestake mine at Lead started
a
cave-in, which continued to the sur
face, making a hole in the heart of
the city fifteen lieet wide and forty
feet long.
When the dust had cleared away
the Hertolero boarding house was
seen hanging over the edge of the
crevasse, and the Campbell hotel's
back
steps led into it.
Homesteader Killed.
William Selker, a well known home
steader of Gregory county, while on
his way home from the town of Her
rick with a load of lumber, received in
juries which caused his death. It is
supposed the wheels of the wagon
struck a rut, throwing Seiker from the
load. He struck head first on the
wagon tongue and fell to the ground,
and the heavy load was hauled over
bis body.
A
huge gash was cut ir
his right leg and an artery severed

SOCIAL DEMOCRATS MAY
NAME CANDIDATE.
Pierre, Sept. 2l—The office of
the secretary of stale has been
informed that there is strong pro
liability that before the time for
expirations of filing for indepen
dent candidates, there will be fil
ings for places under the title of
Social Democrats. The Socialists
,failed, to get their ticket in on
the primary ballot, and now can
only get in each for himsel/.
though enough to fill the list did
come in its candidates under the
the same title. The list to be fil
ed will no doubt be praetiealh
the same list which was selected
by the Socialists in their conven
tion held at that city prior to the
primary election.
