Eight Women

Murder at Fargo.

Fargo has had a genuine, premeditated murder. It occurred Wednesday night. From the Argus of the 16th we glean the following facts: J. H. Wheeland, a sewing machine agent of that city, had a dispute with E. Quinn, bar tender, at the Grand Pacific about a bill. The bar tender struck the agent. It seems that night Wheeland returned and engaged the bar keeper in a game of billiards, and when they were alone, turned loose on him. Quinn was found with his face in a spittoon. Wheeland gave himself up to the authorities.
