xxvn LOCALS GOME BACK WALLOP ROSHOLT TWO SISSETOX SKPAKATKS ROSHOLT FROM TWO GAMES IN EX. CHANGE FOR OXK LOST ALL SHOW GOOD FORM ljano lirplaivs DaliLstrom and looks like One Who Can Muss 'em up No Game Thursday Another week of base ball has •slipped into history, and the unex pected has happened again. Just when the local fans were getting ready to wager that Sisseton's was the fastest team in the state, the -dope was upset by no less an aggre gation than those lads from the northeastern part of the county, the town of Rosliolt. After this change of luck, a very noticeable change ot heart was predominate among lo cal fans. But this attitude was abort lived, as the locals came back strong the next day, pounded Tom my King for 13 safetys and tallied 7 runs as against 4 for Rosholt. Thursdays game had caused the lo cal boys to become angry, and they were detrmined to give no let up uu til the fans were convinced that any club has a joner day. As a result Anderson, who had abut them out on Friday, was given a thorougn beating by the tune ot 10 to 4. Wil liams was on the mound for the home team, and projected unhitable ball#, in copious quantities. Sunday't game with Waubay was played in cold, drizzly weather, and was de void of good bos work? but hitting the ball was very much in order. .Seven circuit clouts were registered. •Wick, Tracey, Burnian and Rodeen hit for four bases for tiisseton Jones and Hays made circuit drive? tor Waubay. As Wednesday was an opeti date practice was indulged in. The entire •to )in showed up well in practice, A long spell ot batting practice was first indulged in, after which infield and outfield practice was made in order. Harry Lano, who reported lu ha club Tues lt.v, showed up well at sliort-stop. and will very likely be given a permanent berth at that position. Harry is a brother ot Art Lar. •, who worl:p". at second for Sisseton's team last year. .He re ported from Gasper, Wyoming, where he has played this season. He is a clean fielder, has a good batting eye. a good wing, and should guard that position well. "Shorty" Dahl strom, who came here from the Ab erdeen club, was released to join a western club, and left Friday. Game Thursday? Impossible, but fine weather for young ducks. The ball park Is transforming itself into a fish pond, and so long as we have men of small stature on the team, we'll not take chances on a game until the weather clears off or until boats become cheaper. At present the following schedule Is fix«d.

Opposition Charges Against Father O'Donaghue Proven to be Without Foundation When it was first announced that Father Martin O'Donaghue was to speak in North Dakota on the Nonpartisan League certain political inter ests circulated charges that he was not a priest in good standing in the church. The following translation of a letter written by Cardinal Gibbons proves the falsity of these charges: "To every one and to each one inspecting this letter, we testify that the Reverend Martin O'Donaghue, a priest of our diocese, is bound by no censures, at least as far as has come to our knowledge, but, on the contrary is known to us by integrity of habits and good fame therefore, we request the bishops of tne places in which he shall make a sojourn that they Idndly concede to him the privilege of performing sacred functions. "Given at Baltimore, in our house and under our sign and seal th» 14th day of May of the year 1920. "J. CARD. GIBBONS." Father O'Donaghue in Action "We own our streets, we have our public parks, our public librar ies, our fire departments and lots of other things—OUT things. These things are good and healthy and we should have them whether you «all them socialism, Roman Catholicism or bolshevism, or what not." "I wish I were a sailor so that I could say somthing in real lurid ianguager But I will be hamstrung if we are going to earn some other man bread for him. We are going to earn our own bread and we are going to find it mighty good to eat." '"There are sqme of you who say you are sons and daughters of the American revolution. You are not. Let us all come to our senses and realise that we are the American revolution and we are not going to put down our arms until every man, woman and child on the face of the earth has Justice dealt out to them." "The opponents of the League say that you will put the Nonpar tisan leaders into power and that under guise of other promises they will throw you into socialism—and they mean by socialism anarchy, disorder and paternalism. You tell thftse fellows to go and tell that stuff to the gate post." "After the Nonpartisan League gets through with its work there may be chance for the good, trjie old democratic principals to live. They have not been allowed to live for many a year by Wall Street. It would be a cataclysm for the union and for the whole world if the non partisan League in North Dakota and surrounding states should be de feated at this time." "I understand that they howl against the Nonpartisan League that it is advocating free love. You can take this from me that free lover3 do not want any homes, and they are not going to build any homes and they do not live in homes. Any league such as the Nonpartisan League that is trying to build up homes is fighting, not in words, but in facts this free love." "Have you farmers taught America a thing or two? It Is my opin ion that you have. Keep it up, boys. God knows if I were 10,000 men I would come out here and work the flesh off my bones to help you in this fight because it is the fight of America and humanity."

City Observes Memorial1 Day Good Program Was- Carried Out Nothwithstandlng Inclement Weather Conditions Although the heavy rain which preceded Memorial Day had much to do in cutting down the attend ance at the services and exercises a fair sized crowd of people turned out to pay tribute to the dead.

The band, which was to appear, was unable to assist, but the parade, Services and exercises were held in an orderly and fitting manner. A large number of auto mobiles joined the parade and car ried a good-sized crowd to the ceme tery, where services were conduct ed by the American Legion, the W. R. C., the Ladies Auxiliary and the G.

Hagan, former president a| the Scandinavian American hank at Fargo, N. D., convicted by a Jury of technical violation of the state banking code, has been granted a new trial by District Judge M. J. Englert of North Dakota. Hagan was accused of having ex* hibited a false paper with Intent to deceive the bank examiner. The case was brought following the at tempt of the opposition to the' Non partisan league to elose the Scandi navian bank beeause it had made loans to the League and other far mer organizations, which loana were alleged to be in excess of the limit provided by law and poorly secured. The attempt to close the bank and thus undermine the credit ot the farmers' organisation tailed, the bank being declared perfectly sol vent by the state banking depart ment and the supreme oourt of the state. The case against Hagan was poll* tical in its nature and created wide spread Interest.

In other words, the attorney general had been guil ty of thef( and other contemptible methods in order to bring the case against Hagan for political effect. tl is not t-Vi. vcd that the attor ney, general w::i press the matter of a new trial.
