Washington, March 0.-Oountess Mar
guerite Cassini the beautiful niece of the
Russian ambassador, has set official Wash
ington by the ears, and incidentally has
involved her uncle in a muddle, which will
require considerable diplomacy to clear.
Countess Cassini, finding that fltle would
be obliged to take second place to some
that she considered herself entitled to
rank, complained to her uncle with the re
sult that he refused to take any part in
the inaugural ceremonies.
The countess has caused much Worry at
the White House during the socTal season
by insisting on ranking several ladies in
diplomatic and official circles.
The countess, who was given her title
by the czar so that she might hold the
position she deems hem at Washington,
further complicated the! affair by appear
ing in the senate gallery while Vice
President Roosevelt took the oath. Her
presence there and the absence of her
uncle from the diplomatic ranks at the
ceremonies was noted on all sides and
whispered to the president.

the company has its business eye is not
known, but is believed to be somewhere
near this city.
Evidence of petroleum Is found in
many places, and the water in several
small springs and streams is coated with
oily substance to some extent. Pro
fessor James E. Todd, state geologist,
is not a very firm believer in the oil
prospect, however, and gives several good
reasons, the principal one of which is
that in a great many cases artesian wells
have been sunk to a depth far below
where oil, if it existed, would be found.
Nevertheless, he says, he might be mis
taken, owing to the fact that the wells
are mostly on the bottom lands and the
oil is supposed to exist on the bluffs.

"OLD SHAKES" IS DEAD
Northern Indian Chief Who Made a

Special to The Journal.
Victoria, B. C, March 5.-The steamer
Boscownz, which arrived yesterday morn
ing brought news of the death "of "Old
Shakes," chief of the tribes living on the

one of the foremost Indian chiefs of the
north, and when the steamer passed
down, the tribes from many rancheries in
the vicinity had gone in flotillas of canoes
to the villages, and were wailing, chant

The dead Indian chief is the hero of an
anecdote connected with Queen Victoria.
Some eight years ago. after a prosperous
fishing season—he maintained the rights
of fishing in a river at the reservation
which was well stocked with salmon and
his seines caught many of the fish taken to
Lowe inlet—he held a potlateh, and after
the feast closed and gifts had been given
to all the native chiefs and others, he
decided to make a potlateh to the "big
chief," Queen Victoria.
He took five $20 gold pteces to one of the
missionaries in the north and asked the
missionary to send them with Shake's
best wishes as a -cultus potlatth" to
Queen Victoria. The money was brought
down to Victoria and handed over to the
Indian department, and in due course was
forwarded to the home secretary through
the department and presented to Queen
Victoria. The queen sent a letter telling
of her thanks for the potlateh and for
the many expressions of loyalty sent with
it by Chief Shakes, and she gave the
chief a photograph of herself and a fine
shawl for his klootchman.
When the photograph arrived there was
a big celebration. A potlateh was given
and the picture of the queen was viewed
by hundreds of Indians, who bowed to it
and treated it with most ceremonious rev
erence. The picture and shawl are still
in the house of Shakes and money cannot

Thirty Roll Calls at Pierre During
the Capital Fight.
MAJORITY FOILED BY MINORITY
Hot Exchange Between the Speaker
.",";-' and Member*—History of the
Special to The Journal.
Pierre, S. D., March s.—The fight in the
house Saturday night over capital removal
will be handed down as one of the memor
able parliamentary battles of the state.
For over six hours twenty-four members
controlled fifty-nine and prevented a vote
on the joint resolution to submit the
amendment. During the time about thirty
roll calls were had —almost as many as j
during the great prohibition fight of eight j
years ago. Becausee of a rule adopted
earlier in the week, the removal question
could be presented to the house only
through a committee or by suspension of
the rules. The chairman of the commit
tee on elections and privileges attempted
to introduce the bill, but was met with an
objection and a point of. order that the bill
could not be presented from that commit
tee, as its subject matter was not perti- ;
nent to the subject the committee was ap
pointed to consider. The chair sustained
the point of order, whereupon Mr. Bras
appealed. The Pierre people moved to lay i
the appeal on the table, which motion was
: lost on roll call. Then followed motions j
j to adjourn, motions to take a recess and
amendments to the latter, and each time
the house reached the appeal the motion to
lay on the-tabel was renewed, followed by I
the same motions to take a recess Qr to j
adjourn. About 8 o'clock both sides served
lunch to their supporters in the house,
j and for a short time there was a cessation
of hostilities. The lunch masticated, they
went at it again, hammer and tongs, and
Occasionally there was a sharp interchange
of. courtesies between the chair, and Sew
ard of , Watertown, Price of Yank ton : and
Bras, of Davison, the leaders of the ma- j
jority. .Benedict of Tarter and.Goddard
of Sully spoke for the university. Several
times when the chair was charged with
being unfair he defended his rulings with
great deliberation and /seeming | lueldness,
twice claiming plainly he was not to blame
neither was he going to violate parlia
mentary law for the purpose of helping a
majority reach a point that could be
reached easily under the rules if the ma
jority knew how to proceed. . ; . .'■*,.*
At times feeling ran high, but the pres
ence .of a large crowd in the lobby, if
nothing else, prevented the carrying out of
any idea that might have been entertained
of ousting the speaker from the chair by
force. Naturally the majority claims the
speaker was'wrong, but he produced rules
for his decisions and contended that the
majority had no right to raise the point
of dilatory motions when it was attempt
ing to violate the law and take advantage
of the minority by attempting to bring in a
bill from a committee that was not com
petent to consider it under the rules. ; On
the whole, however, remarkably good feel
ing prevailed and It was clearly demon-'
strated that the minority possessed the
better parliamentary talent. Beyond. the
passages between Seward and Price and
the speaker there was little exhibition of
bitterness, although neither side lacked
anything in determination. Finally about
midnight a compromise was reached that
the resolution should be introduced and
read twice before adjournment,, and that
upon convening on Monday at 2 o'clock the
resolution ♦•would be given its third read

The raising of the capital ghost at this
time was due to a peculiar combination
of causes. Some claim that soreness over
the organization had something to do with
it. but the direct cause was the active
work of hustlers from Watertown. These
people came to the capital at the opening
of the session with the capital removal bee
buzzing in their bonnets. They wanted
the plum for Watertown, but claimed they
were willing to go into a caucus In which
the claims of every city in the state should
be represented, the city securing a major
ity on final ballot to be declared the choice
of the bunch. This scheme failed, and the
next heard of the Watertown boomers was
that they were fixing things to take the
reform school from Plankinton. When it
came to a show-down in the house on this
proposition Watertown got only thirty
two votes, to fifty-one for Plankinton.
The Watertown people were furious over
i their failure and charged Pierre with bad
! faith, claiming they had been promised a
j bunch of votes that was not delivered.
The capital contest was renewed, with the
aid of the dissatisfied in the senate. Fri
day night a caucus was held that demon
strated the movement would carry in the
house. Saturday afternoon another caucus
was called for the purpose of balloting on
the choice for capital. Minnehaha county
members received a number of telegrams
from commercial and jobbing houses of
Sioux Falls asking them not to enter that
| city in the race, but for all this the Falls
I stood second highest. Mitchell won on the
! third ballot.
As a part of the deal it was arranged
that the pending special house appropri
! ation bills, also the house general appro-
I priation bill, should be taken up and
passed before the capital question. Every
member asking an appropriation voted
] with the removers, excepting those from
! the Black Hills and three of the four mem
bers from Brown. These bills were passed
shortly before C o'clock, and then the
skirmish on the capital began.
The milling was kept up all day Suuday
and well into the night, both sides realiz
ing the necessity of having two-thirds of
the senators in order that an absolutely
safe combination could be made with the
! appropriation fellows. Every imaginable
trick was turned and all sorts of rumors
were set on float. Watertown, having ac
complished what she claimed was her de
sire—the punishmeni of Pierre —seemed to
take only a minor part in the fray on Sun
day, representing that she had turned
everything over to the winner of the con
solation course, and that Mitchell would
have to conduct the brunt of the fight.
From this point the movement seemed to
The board of charities bill which be

in the history of the state. From the
date of its introduction until it was ap
proved by the governor, it was kept con
tinually on the move in one house or j
another and passed through all the stages
in three days. Under the provisions of
this law, the terms of the fusion recess
appointees will expire March 8, with the
session of the "legislature. The governor
has reappointed Messrs. Rice and Lavin,
whose appointments were knocked out by
the recent decision in the supreme court,
and they with Kingsbury, Finnerud and
Schnaidt will constitute the new board.
The new board will probably meet at
some convenient point on the 9th inst.
to take formal action in the way of or
ganizing. The fusionists will, of course,
attack the law in the courts, but it is
claimed by the republicans that it will
take but a few days to convince them
that the new law is good and can neither
be "referendumed" nor knocked out on a
technicality. At first the populist lead
ers laughed at the bill, but the more
they study it the less they like it, and
yesterday several of them acknowledged
it was the hardest proposition they had

"After I was cured of bronchitis, I had
la grippe every winter for several win
ters. But, through the use of Peruna it
got gradually weaker in its severity until
it dwindled down to a mere stupor for
two or three days. Now the stupor
does not trouble me any more."—O. H.
Mr. Nicholas F. Rossiter, care Cleve

"This winter I had a severe attack of

It is rumored that several towns will con

two years. The fair will be under the
management of an entirely new board,
and a new deal will probably be called
for. Under the terms of the bill creat

part of the state and it is said that two
or three towns in the center are casting

member has introduced a bill to create
a board of charities and corrections, con
sisting of three members, to receive $1,500
a year each and expenses. The bill will
probably be defeated, but at the same
time it i 3 not without merit. Such a
board, if composed of business men, would
save the salaries twice over.
Xo one would have believed a short time
ago that Pierre and Huron would ever
work together on the capital question.
But the seemingly impossible has come
to pass. Huron wants the capital her
self, but believes that for her individual
interests the next best place is Pierre.
As soon as the representatives of Huron
became satisfied that their town could
not win in the house combination they
refused to go into it.
