It ia with a sigh of relief that we drop
the pen editorial, and retire wholly from
the editorial and business management of
the TRIBUNE, which lias been purchased
by Stanley Huntley, for some years con
nected with the Chicago press, and after
wards with the Washington Post.
It is well known that we have desired lo
retire from the management of the TBI
BUSE for two years past—since our pro
tracted illness in 1876—but the opportun
ity has not. occurred until now. We leave
it because we need rest, our business in
terests need attention, and it
is to our finan
cial interests to do so.
The TRIBUNE falls into good hands.
Mr. Huntley will give his patrons a bright
er and livelier paper than we have ever
been able to give, and will be faithful in
battling for tlic local interests of Bismarck,
as all will concede ws have "Ijeen.
Bismarck will, no doubt, form the main
plank in his platform, as he believes with
us that whatever contributes-to the inter
ests of Bismarck and helps its business
men, contributes to his succcss.
The TRIBUNF was at first published as
an independent paper. Afterward it was
called Republican becausc many could
not understand why it was not neutral
but its tone has never changed, and when
our successors rake over the past they will
undoubtedly find among the embers not a
few live coals that they will endeavor to
use in warming Republican candidates
but the record will be found a consistent
From this time forward the TRI
BUNE, under anew management, will be
Democratic. And it is proper it should
be, for a large majority of its warmest
friends and patrons are and have been
Witn these few parting words we bid
our readers good-bye, confident that they
will be better pleased with the TRIBUNE,
under its new managemeut, than under
the old. C. A. LOUNSBERRY.
The Press and Dakotian insists that the
TRIBUNE is fairly out of the party, and
expresses the hope that it will not return
to tlie Republican fold, not because its ed
itor does not heariilv support Judge Ben
nett not because he does not have faith in
his integrity, or because he questions his
ability, but because he has dared to tell
the truth and warn the party that it is in
danger of defeat and because he has sug
gested that it is better to let those disap
pointed growl without rebuke rather than
put them on the defensive and force them
into Democratic ranks.

Unfortunately for our candidate, the
character of the times is such that all at
tempts to whip men into party traces will
re act and injure the Republican cause,
and it is far better to endeavor to promote
an era of good feeling in our ranks than
it is to abuse those who are not entirely
satisfied with the candidates of the party.
So far as the TRIBUNE editor is con
cerned he does not need "coaxing," as the
P. and D. mildly suggests. Coaxing will
not induce him to lie for the party, and
that seems the only cause for complaint
nor will kicks or cuffs, or misrepresents
lions of any sort drive him out of the
party, or from the support of its candidates,
so long as worthy men are nominated
nor will personal disappointments ever
lead htm to abandon it.

Originally a war Democrat he cast his
first vote for the Republican ticket in 1864,

tosurrender and were engaged in aback fire

During the war much corruption crept
into the ranks of the Republican party,
and the effort of the party to rid itself of
corrupt men. and its mistakes in the man
agement of affairs in the South, has well
near given the country to tlie opponents
of that party.
Every scalawag defeated in the ranks of
the Republican party straightway joined
some peoples movement, participated in
the granger excitement or later engaged
in labor reform, or joined in the howl for
greenbacks, but we have noticed that all
roads from the Republican party lead into
the Democratic camp, and we want none
of that in ours.
While this is true, if we believe the Re
publican party is in danger, we shall not
hesitate to say so. We did tliink'that the
Republicans would not have a walk away
in the present campaign, and we still think
there is danger of defeat. Hot because
our candidate is not all that was claimed
for him by those who so successfully" urged
his nomination, but because many are un
easy and disposed to vote just about as
they please. The great bulk of the Re
publican vote will stand firm for the can
didate of the party, but there is a floating
vote which cares but little as to results,
which will go with the "boys." Now the
boys are up and dressed. They are or
ganizing their Tripp clubs all over the
Territory, and their warriors propose to
labor unceasingly for the election of their
man. Theirs is an enthusiastic campaign,
oneofmuaic,banncrs and gunpowder, while
our party seems disposed to march to the
polls in a sort of a funeral procession.
There are many who are jealous of Judge
Bennett because he is anew comer, and it
true that many heretofore active wom
en in the Republican party had just as
soon see him beaten as not, because they
believe his success now would put him in
position for the United States Senate when
Dakota becomes a State, and they see lit
tle to be gained by his election.
The office holders are not particularly
enthusiastic because they do not feel that
the delegate could either help or hurt,
them, besides the President has ruled
them out of active politics. It is to be re
gretted that this is so, but abuse of those
who indulge these feelings isn't likely to
promote or improve that feeling.

will be generally supported for district at
torney, and the contest, in case of the
adoption of such a ticket, will be wholly
between Tripp and Bennett.
Alex McKenzie, of course, will be re.
elected sheriff. He is one of the very best
officers in that capacity in the Territory,
and it would be impossible to beat him on
any ticket on which he might run. In
deed the entire ticket suggested is a good
one and can not well be improved.
H. A. Yitt announces himself else
where as an independent candidate for

of the people. Mr. Vitt is a very worthy
citizen and is in every respect qualified
for the place.
The editor of the Elk Poiut Courier ap
peals to those who lay in southern prisons
and to those who fought and bled for their
country's cause, not to forget the past, but
to stand by their colors and to vote for
Bennett in the present campaign. The
plea to vote for Bennett for party reasons
—or because be is able and honest, is very
well, but those of us who did lay in rebel
prisons those of ns who did bleed for our
country's cause, really desire to forget.
For oue we do not wish to recallthesuffer
ing endured during a year spent in rebel
prisons, nor do we wish lo recall the suff
sring of a night of storm spent among the
dead and wounded on a southern battle
field. We have no occasion to go into
politics lobe reminded of the pains result
ing from shattered limbs, nor do we be
lieve those who have seen and felt the hor
rors of war wish to have them brought up
again and again in every political cam
paign. We have no words of denunpia
tion only for those Democrats who re
mained at home and rejoiced when our
flag trailed in the dust Among our asso
ciates in the army were men brave and
true, who, before the war, voted and who
now vote the Democratic ticket. They
arc entitled to their share of credit and it
is a shame that the politics of to-day can
not be fought on the issues of the day. If
there are no issues but the bloody shirt of
the past, better frankly own it and conduct
the campaign on personal grounds.

The Pn-aj and Dakotian My: "Bartlett
Tripp makes no speeches !n aoutheaMera
Dakota. He walks about from Louse to
house and invites the people to recognize
him in beHef: ifiui than Judge Bennett.
That's all there ia to the campaign on the
Democratic side. To ddiyer himself oft
speech and tail to enunciate solid Demo
cratic doctrine would antagonize against
Bartlett Tnpp valuable dements of th*
Democratic party,. To make a speech in
which were enunciated the principles of
Democracy would not gather any Repute
lican' votes. To secure the latter is his
mission, and in their pursuit he has fat
come the walking embodiment of political
deceit. Carrying within him all the par.
tisan hate which a Democrat holds against
a Republican, he alleges that tLis is not a
political campaign, and chuckles quietly
to himself over the monstrosity he ha*
perpetrated. Once away from the Repub
lican strongholds of southeastern Dakota
the proselyting business will cease and the
black flag of Democracy will be hoisted.
The Democratic speeches of the campaign
are to be made to Democrats. Among
Republicans the oily gammon of :a purely
personal contest" is being employed..
The Springfield Times of the 12th says:
In the present campaign there is an is«ue
of principles involved which must be fair
ly and nquare'y met. There can be no
personal issues raised, no defamation of
character on the one side or the other.
Both candidates arc gentlemen of real
.Worth.and_inielligence, aiul liuncc no mam
can prefer the one to the other on personal
grounds. What then is to be the guide
whereby our great mass of electors are to
determine for which candidate the^ should
vote Simply the princi pies and political
doctrines which the two men represent
must be the turning point of preference
between them. Both gentlemen are put
forward as representatives of two great
parties—one tlie Republican party, the
other the Democratic party. To those
who love the old party of the Union—the
party of freedom and equal right to all
before the law—the party that has pro
tected with its might free labor and frer
schools, and provided free homes and free
lands for the landless—there can be no
question as to how they will vote. Let
the column move on, and let there be no
deserters just before the battle.
The Sioux Falls Panlagraph says Some
of Judge Bennett's opposers are telling
tales of how he manipulated this antece
dent of the territorial convention, and how
he tliimble-rigged that arrangement in or
der to secure the nomination, making him
out to be one of the most adroit wire-pull
ers that politics ever bred. With those ac
quainted with Judge Bennett this will pass
for the veriest nonsense. He is known by
his acquaintances to be a good stumper,
and that is all that he is as a political
worker. He is the most thorough novice
imaginable iu the way of setting up the
pins, and he always will be, for he hasn't
sufficient of that .superficial suavity neces
sary to make him any such manipulator of
people as he is portrayed by his enemies.
Something else than Judge Bennett's wire
pulling abilities must be trumped up by
which to account for his having received
the nomination. One reason why he was
svccessful already suggests itself to us.
which is that he got tlie most votes.
Hon. Bartlett Tripp addressed a large
audienc at the Opera House last evening.
His appearance, manner of address and
to some extent, liis Fpeech pleased, but he
dwelt almost too long on Bennett, as a
carpet bagger, to suit the atmosmpcre of
this community, where nearly all are com
paratively new commers. lie was received
however, with a great deal of enthusiasm*
and left, feeling confident that Burleigh
county is pretty nearly solid for Tripp.
Hon. Ansley Grey followed in a well
considered speech of about twenty min

friends iu this vicinity, among Republi

The iron-clad treasure coach which left
thiscity yesterday morning by the Chey
enne route was robbed at Canyon Spring*,
about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and a
man by the name of H. O. Campbell, a tel
egrapli operator en route to Custer, was
killed by the brigands. The stock tender
at the station, which is only about thirty^
five miles from Deadwood, arrived hen
this forenoon and related thefollowingpar
ticulars of the affair:
Shortly before the arrival of th« coach
man on horseback rode up and asked fat a
drink of water. Upon dismounting, .he at
once ordered the stock tender to throw np
his hands which he was not long in doing,
when the robber loeked him in the gnun
room of the stables. By this time
five in number, ail got in aud proceeded to
make arrangements f.)- the capture of the
coach. They removed the dirt from be
tween the logs near the door of die stable,
where the stage always stops, and upon its
arrival opened tire from their positions
on the inside. Campbell was struck in.th»
head, a man named Smith was woundei^
but the extent of his wound is not luiowo.
Gale Hill, one of the messengers, was hit
in the side, and in one of his arms, break
ing it Scott Davis got away from the
coach and taking a position behind a tree
opened fire on the robbers. Soon after
this the bandits rounded up all the mea
about the place and tied them to trees,
saying that at 10 o'clock a man wonld be
along to release them. Immediately upoc.
securing their victims they removed.the
safe from the coach and opened it- This,
the stock tender says, required several
hours of work. Upon the completion of
this job the robbers look to the woods, hot
it is our informant's belief that they wqat
only a short distance from the scene of
their bloody work.
The men. remained tied to the trees until
half pas', 9 or 10 o'clock last night, whea
the st jck tender freed himself and imme
diately relieved the others, and then started
t'j report the affair to headquarters. Oa
taking his departure he heard a noise
close to the station and a lew minatee af
terwards the report of many shots were
heard, and it is thought the villains had
returned to strip their victims of all valu*
ables, and appropriate the stage honae*
and that they reoeived au unexpected hot'
