Cnirioo,Nov. '.^.^The national couvcn-^tion of the Woman's Cnristiuu Temperance^Onion resumed it* session this morning. A^telegram from Washington wan read as fol^^low*: ^A straight l^ar room license whs is^^sued to Vice-President Morton's hotel iu^the name of Aiiioh K. Jermati, manager.^All the other saloons are without a licetiHe.^^Mr*. Kllon Foster, of Iowa, theanti-W'illard^leader, arose and suid: ^1 would suggest^that it doe* not couiport with the objects of^the W. 0. T. DL to make any suggestion* to^Vioe-Presidcnt Morton. It in probably nec^^essary for hnu to hare a bar in hi* hotel,^just as it i* necessary for the l'almer house^to have a bar, just as it is necessary for^the W. ('. T. I'. to have its headquarters in^the Man bouse, notwithstanding its bar.
Ithink 1 will ask the committee on r. M^lotions to prepare a resolution to express^the sentiment of the convention regarding^the HiilcKiii license taken out by our vice-^president,^ snid Miss Willard. ^We bsvs^information from Washington from the^best of sources that he has taken out a li-^oeuse, and now we can express our opinion.
Afew minutes later ex-(iov. St. John, of^Kansas, was ushered upon the platform anil^^poke on the matter m controversy. He^^aid in part: ^It has la-en charged that^Vic* President Morton is a salooukec|M-r:^that is not true. It has Keen chart;, d tint^be has taken out a retail liquor lie, n,e.^That is not true. It has been stated that a^Saloon license hud Is en issued for a hotel^owned by the vice president. That is true.^Morton furnished a fashionable hotel ami^leased it to a in in named Kernan. h. man^Applied for a license, lie had to get the^consent of the property owners en each side,^suit they w ere Vice l'resident Morton and^John It. Mclje.in. Vice l'resident Morton^was the lirst one to consent that liquors^should bt soid in the new hotel. Those are^the facts, and if he had loved his country.^GikI and humanity as a man oecu p\ i n g such^an exalted position siiouid. he would never^huve signed that application, lie would^have forbidden the Ml* of liquor iu his^hot. 1.
Atthe afternoon session Mrs. Foster arose^to u question of privilege. ^1 asked per^^mission,^ s.tid she, ^to read this tcl. gr on,^which 1 have received from Gen. Nettlelon.^It directly and positively contradicts an^^other telegram that has been read Ian lo^day and I will ask to have it placed on^record.^ ^ mi~.nl was granted by the uon-^Teiitionand Mrs. Foster readies follows:^^Miss Willard'* accusation against Vice-^President Morton lawithoal a Hhadowo,^foundation and Mr. Morton per-^sonally denounced the canard through^the uewsjmpi rs lust week.^ Miss^Willard wa* d.sposed to |M^rmit the commu^^nication to go on record, but before the^necessary consent of the convention had^been asked for, Mrs. Jones, a 1'hiladclphut^delegate, arose and objected ^and what had^our president to do with that telegram from^Judge Morton^^ She said: ^Is it not tone^that my heart should till with indignation^to hear our honored ollicer charged with^falsity^ I, for one, will not vote to permit^such a telegram to go on record.^ Mrs.^Jones bristled w:ih indignation M she^^poke, and immediately after she linishcd^there was uproarious applause, which boded^no snoouragemeiit for Mrs. Fo-n r. Mrs.^Jones asked in an Iron toe I way whether the^tele .lam w as prompted by some one in the^Convent,on, or was it merely the happy^thought of Mr. N^ ttleton.

GaxxnFoum. N. D., Nov. !^.-N'orth Da^^kota i^ left without a I'nited State* judg.'^and commissioner. '1 his i* only one feat^^ure of the awkward all-digested statehood^programme. The people are virtually de^^prived of federal courts. They tire law^abiding ami patieut, but forbearance is at^the expense of the interest*of litigants, and^exisises the public to crime committed^against the I'nited States which does not^provide any mean* for the punishment of^criminal*. No federal court exist* in the^new state. Practically the peope are worse^off than la'fore the admission. All is chaos^and direful consequences would result *hould^I serious crime be committed against^the federal law*. There is no rea^^son why the appointments of judge^und commissioner should not be instantly^made except that the aptwiiutmcnt* are held^tin at the instance of politicians until the^I nited States senators are elected. It is a^republican scheme to subject the public^safety to a scramble for place and patron^^age. For the time being the federal gov^^ernment is without authority iu North Da^^kota, and it is impossible to punish crime^against the I'nited States. This ridiculous^situation might easily have been foreseen^and ought to have been provided ngainst.^The statehood progress liu* Is-en farcial.^Gov. Mellett, after qualifying ue gover^^nor of South Dakota and certify^^ing to the election of I'nited States^senators, returns to Bismarck, enn-^viisne* the returns of the North Dakota^election, certified the result to the presi^^dent, canvassed the South Dakota ^'lection^returns, and certilied to his own election,^thus acting as governor of North Dakota^while residing in South Dakota. The con-^stituliotud convention of North Dakota^t riasrended its (siwer* and violcted the pro.^vision* of the oinuibu* bill. The constitu^^tion and RC'edule are inconsistent and^ambiguous. Tsi prohibition provisions^are unsatisfactory and obscure. Territorial^license law is certainly repugnant to prohi^bition. That article of the constitution,^therefore, is no longer in force. Licenses^cannot legally lie granted, but prohibition^is not in force until the laws enacted are in^force and these do not take effect until July^following lbs adoption. Consequently the^liquor business is wide open.and free whisky^is rampant. The statehood programme is a^piece of republican bungling botohwork.

Davtc'sLakb. N. D., Not. *.^.^In a gen^^eral way attention has been called to the^present unhappy condition of the farmers^iu a few localities in North Dakota. An^analysis ol individual ruses may accentuate^the appeals for that aid which must cer^^tainly conic from the. east. Local country^relief is exhausted. Iloth Nelson and liain^^ey counties, as wi ll as others in the af^^flicted sections, are Isoidcd It the full ex^^tent of the law and dependence on this^source must Is1 abandoned. Aside from the^list of names below hundeds of other cases^could be mentioned. Nor are the cases of^these men at all exceptional. They are^repn -entiitive of the class of people whose^present financial distress appeals to our^sympathies.
ThomasKeynolds, of Lakotu township, in^Nelson county, is | hard working farmer.^For three years he has lived U|mui ii quarter^section of land which is now under the eye^of the niortagee. Financially Mr. Hcynolds^has no interest iu the laud. He sustains^the relation to it of a renter |^ayiug or^Bgn eing to liny a high rent in the sha|^e of^interest. During the entire three yeurs he^has not raised what could fairly be called u^crop. He lias m Ins temporary ihisscsmoii^some stock, all covered by mortgage, rapid^lv accruing interest eating their bead* off.^'1 hi one problem in hi* life jnst at present^is to again secure a ftsitiug sufficient to en^^able hi in to remain in the country and as^^sist in contributing to the future prosperity^of a state that, under ordinary circum^^stances, should, us so many seasons it has,^ISSgh with a harvest when tickled with a^hoe. i
Martin lterg. of Cleveland township, also^in Nelson county, is an industrious Norwe^^gian and gritty. He has a wife ami four^children. All of his cattle are blanketed by^mortgages. With winter BpSB Sjsj and not^a dollar of resources, the gloomy pr^pect^presented to his view consists of a strip of^land ill which he cm claim no particular^interest. For two years he has managed to^keep his family alive. Present assistance, a^goo,| snowfall, a few jpring showers, and^this niiiii Would become a ^elf supporting^Clt Zen.
J.W. Kdlips has Ntsh 1 counlv sup^^port for a year. Frost last ^ ear and drought^this hit him hard. His st It has all died,^and his present conditio!, , gitiable.
AndrewDiets, of Kstt-rpritM township, is^litterally destitute, with I wife ami six^children upon his hands. Without assist^^ance it will be impoHsihh f,i theiu to sur^^vive the winter.
FrankPropclca. of lakotu township, with^a family of six or SfTM children, is wholly^destitute. Mortgages have t; ken every^^thing lie had, as they have the stock^of Air. Churchgar, who is equally unfortu^^nate.
IllKainsey county the jieople who have^depended on farming during the |^ast two^year* are in an equally unhappy condition,^that is, in proportion to the p .pulation,^Isstsis ti e t^ class of destitute but^worthy people. The country commissiossn^have appoiniod a relief SOSMtJttSt. and^Home aid has been already received. A man^III the town of Hotlett Slatctl, 111 lllft. I, lit

At the last^store, a Mr. BsMSti upon investigating^the case, til recti d the storekeeper to dive^the man the Hour. Such is but one of the^Ilium mils install!'! | m which the |s-oplc are^hi Ipuig each other. It is not an unusual^circumstance only in so far as it in a t)|^e of^ens, s altogether tis^ numerous for the en dit^^I a st ite proverbial for abundance, lndi^vidually the people are generous to each^other iii the extreme, but they have lived^up m internal resource* for so long that the^supply is exhausted.
JohnWolf is mi instance of an energetic^QsrSJSM farmer utterly desiitute. TssiSi^the county c n.iibuted assistance until the^fund w is exhi.u-ted. I mil lately he hud^a b w chickens and a pig or two but his re-^soinci s are all gone.
Forthe last four or five years a farmer^named Lyle has lived in a lection known us^No Man's land, fourteen miles north of Ln-^kota. All of his stock is mortgaged, and he^is unable to state exactly how be has lived^the last year, but he can see no inducement^for continuing tin- struggle.
Hiese men who have lieen mentioned are^all i iicrget.c, practical farmers. Fnder fa^^vorable circumstances they would reject^offer* of relief. Some of them to-day are^inclined to present their cast a in the most^ho|*ful light. A lew of them, with others^not nam. d, may declare their ubility to pull^through. I'Iiik is pluck of a high order, but^such an assertion is in the nature of whis^^tling in a graveyard.

Whatis SABoubtedly tin- longest tele-^phouu circuit in Kuro)sr is the line from^Vienna to Lei|^aic. Every word can be per^fee' it w ai, i iood mid the voice recognized^without ditliculty. The distance between^the two cities by rail ia something less than^3U) miles, but the telephone wires, instead^of being carried uloiig the routes of the^railways, where the noise of passing trains^was found to interfere materially with the^working of the long distance instruments,^are strung along the highway*, where the^results are found to lie much better; mid the^actual distance on these routes is nearly X*)^mil's. A strange fact has Isseu noticed in^connection with this route. While the^so. aker at \ leunu is beard with remarkable^clearness and accuracy at Is-ipsio and all^points along the route, a speaker at either^of these points is heard with much difficulty^at Vienna. The electricians of the company^^re aa yet unable to furnish a satisfactory^explanation of this phenomenon.

Several im^^port imt reports of the eleventh census will^be ready for publication during the full and^winter of 1KU and it makes a suggestion^which if adopted bv congress will secure,^he thinks, the publication of the volumes lis^siss tltly s* they are ready for Ihe printer.^The plan is to have the volumes printed by^private contract, or by having the census^ollice print ami publish them itself. The^work of preliminary enumeration is well in^ha nd.
Amongthe important new features is a^siMs'ial sillily of hi; th ami death rates, and^the principal c uisi s of death iu twenty-four^of our largest cities; a SSsalsl study of the^influence* of race upon fecundity and mor^^tality, and a s|*cud studv of the relations^of the occupations to flic tie: th rate and^particular cause* of death.
