From Dakota, compiled by O. H. Holt, 1885, in the section entitled "Red River Valley", pg. 22:

Fargo is the largest city in the Territory of Dakota, with a population of some 12,000 inhabitants. It is conceded to be the commercial and financial metropolis of the Rod River Valley, having three grand trunk lines centering here, with several branches, penetrating as many different wealthy agricultural sections. There are twenty-six passenger trains in and out of Fargo daily, and this city is the county seat of Cass county, which pays a larger proportion of the Territorial tax, than any other of the some 100 in Dakota.
