been very handsomely draped and decorated
with patriotic colors and festoonings. The
large portraits of the generals of the army
are huug about the hall, and at the end of
the building is Clauson's alegorical painting
representing "peace." Beginning on the

next comes the cafe where the -refreshments
will be served, on the other side the booth
for the. sale of domestic articles, the booth

ST. LOUIS ROBBERY.
A Bunrlar Arrested who Confesses to
the l:olil»"ry. Implicating a
Policeman as it PaL
St. Locts, Dec. 8. — On the night of the
Slat of last May, the city ektk*i office of
East St. i. alt v.- broken into, a hole
punched through the wall of the brick vault
and some *?:J'J,UOO in money and $10,000 in
city securities abstracted. Every effort was
made to find the burglars, but without suc
cess. Recently a bind of burglars have op
erated here and in different parts of the
state, and suspicion fell on their leader,
Charles Clark, as being implicate! in tbe
East St. Louis robbery. Clark was arrested
at Springfield, Mo., Saturday la»t,and brought
here, aud hi* confessed to having done the
East St. 1.0ui.« Job. He now states Lieut*
The*. Duffy, of the East St. Louis police,
stood in with him and shared the money, and
that individual has been arrested. Ii is also
6tatcd that two or three other city officials
were implicated in the affair, and that they
wiil be arrested to-day. Clark Vsscrts, how
ever, that nobody but he and Duffy were con
cerned in the robbery, and that no city scrip
was taken from the vault. The affair ba*
created a good deal of comment in East St.
Louis and steps are aalafj Uken
to probe the matter to the bottom.
No further arrests were made to-day, and it
is now said none will be. There is consid
erable talk in East St. Louis, but no city
official is directly implicated in the affair,
and there does not seem to be any evidence
in that direction. It is now positively as
serted that no city scrip was taken from the
vault by the burglars, and the entire loss by
the robbery is placed at a tritle over $3,000.
Clark aad Duffy will have a preliminary ex
amination this afternoon .
Eloped With a Negro.
New Youk. Dec. 8. — The third elopement
within a week, from within a small radius in
Suffolk county, Long Island, took piace yes
terday. The wife of Ephraira Arch, a wealthy
farmer and an earnest church goer of
Swayne, ran away with a negro. Mm, Arch
was not a regular church attendant and ob
jected to her husband's spending so much
time about the church, away from her.
When Mr. Arch return ■■■l from services yes
terday he (band a card on which his wife hod
written that she had heard of •'Dominie
Downs wife's elopement and she saw no rea
son why she should not elope with the man
she loved." Of course. Arch was beside
himself with rage and- mortification, and his
feelings were not eased when told his wife
had gone off with "a nigger." ''It is awful
to think that Mary should have eloped with a
nigger," he said, "but she will be as happy
with him as with a white man. Inevcrwant
to see her again." Mrs. Arch leaves three
children, aged respectively twelve, nine and
Failure of Opdyke & Co.
New Fobs, Dec 8. — The widely known
linn of Opdyke A: Co., baut-crs, made an as
signment to-day, without preferences. A
member of the firm said the failure sur
prised even him, owing to its suddenness,
and was due to the customers who failed to
respond to the call for margins. It is be
lieved the assets will ultimately yield nearly,
if not quite enough to meet the liabilities.
The major portion of the liabilities is secured
and about $200,000 are unsecured. The firm
was founded sixteen years ago by ex-Mayor
George Opdyke, who died in 1880. The firm
suffered a loss of $1,000,000 in the panic of
15 73, 1500,000 beta? drawn from it in one
run. The present firm was formed in ISSI,
with an invested capital of $250,000 and di
posits of about f 1,000,000. They state their
contracts on the stock exchange will not ex
ceed 500 share-, and that neither Individual
ly nor as a firm have they speculated to the
extent of one share. Tue firm was regarded
as a strong concern, and maintained a high
grade of credits.

So Ahi.Unv City.
There is a tribe of about 3,000 Hebrews be
tween Damascus and Jerusalem, where they
have probably lived since the Christian era.
They have neither city nor town, but live in
camps. No person of a different race or tribe
lias ever been admitted among them. Like
the primitive races.they have remained tillers
of the soil. They cultivate the ground armed
from head to foot, always ready to defend
their portion of the earth, from which, with
great difficulty, they draw a meagre suste
nance. Their ordinary language is Hebrew,
but in their intercourse with others they
speak Arabic, but they rather avoid than seek
strangers, living on little and content to thus
live in this sort of native country, which they
have occupied for many centuries.

the state matter is for the legislature to pro
vide for. conventions to organize two states
in Dakota, fix up all the machinery and have
the fall panoply of statehood ready to start
off like a locomotive when the lever Is turned
at Washington, with senators chosen and
ready to start to Washington at once, the
special feature to be that the senator for the
longest term, both in North and South Da
kota, to be a Democrat from away — one
always known to be a Democrat, "it is thought
this will relieve the objection of the Demo
crats in congress. Many Republicans are in
favor of the project.
One of Many StJiem*:
Public opinion' is tending in this direction
indicated In the Pierre Signal: We are
elastic like a squeezed rubber— we will come
up again. We have been "downed" in our
efforts of division and admission. The in
dications axe not favorable for admission, as
it promises a long discussion and a pro
tracted argument regarding the feasibility of
cutting up Texas, of admitting Utah, Mon
tana, Washington territory, and the best
manner of handling Dakota, whether to
admit as a whole or divide. In view of such
facts it is probably best to ask at once for
division without admission. This will not
be opposed by the factions of Dakota,- and
congress would readily grant ns this, well
satis fled to rest for the time the vexatious
Merely* Drrntn. .
One of the papers has evolved the theory
.that the Democrats will favor the division of
Dakota, because It will furnish additional
offices for Democrats to fill. It says: This
will make a vacancy without lopping off any
old beads among the present territorial of
ficials; give the opportunity of appointing a
dcv set ; this would give a new judge of the
U. S. court, U. S. marshal, collector of in
ternal revenue, U. S. attorney, surveyor
general, and perhaps a custom bouse officer.
In spite of the cramp caused by the unex

that payments have been made quite as
readily and generally as in any former
season : We have it from parties that ought
to know, that collections this year are far
ahead of what they were la«t, and that th •

fur more promptness than was to be ex
pected, considering the low price of wheat.

• The Alexandria Herald represents a preva
lent sentiment in the south in this: Is south
Dakota to stand idly by and fa into the
Union is a whole! Thi* I* the present pros>
peat Work la that direction li rapidly and
silently going forward. Some of the great
men of* the north, aid d by a few south
doughfaces, are poshing the scheme. This
part of the territory is the creator in popula
tion, wealth and productiveness. It does not
wan: the northern millstone hung to its neck.
Either section will go well enough alone, but
united there would always be bickering and
a lack of harmony, which would retard the
advancement of bulb. Let us have division,
or let us forever remain a territory. 1: an
attempt is mado to admit the territory us a
whole there is but oofl tbinc left to do, ami
that Is for the south to vote.Uown any con
If the north is less earnest than the south
in favcr of division, it sbows no indications
of tryiug to perpetuate union with the uu
willing south. If there U a disposition to ac
quiesce in the admission of iv- whole a- one
staU\ it crows out of the conviction that di
vision is hopeless and i: is preferable to ex
clusion from the Union. T:.i- feeling has il3
chief streusrth iv the central regions, but is
found in i .irts of the »outb as well a> north.
The platform adopted by the Democrats at
Sioux Falls favors division without reference
to admission. It is evidently the judicious
potter to lijrht on that line, when division is
effected either section can t..k>- its own time
and method to get in among the states.

This Is a little extravagant, but the thor
ough organization of the party, with the
inspiration and patronage from Washington,
will show a wonderful change at the next
election. The Mandan i'i-w r ? ays: A local
Democrat claims that two-thirds of th- voters
of north Dakota are in reality Democrat*.
Alex. McKeuzlc was well known to be a
Democrat before he came to Bismarck and
found that he had to train with the powers
that were. Our own mayor of Mandan, it is
averred, was a Democrat of the right sort
before he struck the west Missouri elope.
There is no great harm in a, man changing
his opinions, and probably aM of the Da
kota Republicans of to-day have changed
their views ouce 01 twice. They may change
again before Ions:. It i- always well for a
passenger by an ocean steamer to stand in
with the steward, and for MM men it is
wise to stand in with the government.
The Roscoc M-vjnri is a handsome, enter

representing the six months old town fifteen
miles west of Ipswich, the present cud of

this said to eastern people, which may be
made to apply to many new districts: Tell
them a Dakota winter is not near as severe
or unpleasant as those ii: the cast. Tell them
there is a vast quantity of government land
yet remaining in Edmunds county. Tell
them that cereals of all kinds are sure and
large crops. Tell them that the finest graz

here. Tell them that there is not a more
healthy climate on God's green earth than
this. Tell them to leave their worn out farms
of the cast, where there is nothing but poor
crops, disappointments and debts, and come
to Edmnuds county. Tell them that hon

these qualifications, success will surely crown

Kicked Against th- Prtek*.
The La Grace Courier bus this in regard to
the difficulty between the editors of the
Plankinton Aurora and the Kirov Comedy
company, the lady members of which were
offended at remarks of the paper: The edi
tors refused to retract, whereupon the pcrsou
of Mr. Miracle, one of the editors, was kid
napped, with the intention of taking him be
fore the ladies and compelling him to apolo
gize. On the way the sheriff interrupted the
party, arrested the kidnappers and released
the editor. The next scene WM the justices'
court, where the Elroy people were arraigned
for committing a riot, and held to bail in the
sum of $500. Two hundred of the elite of
Plankinton, headed by a brass band, accom
panied the offending Thespians to trie depot
when they left town, assuring them of the
sympathies of the community. The next will
be the trial scene.
In the vicinity of Pierre much interest is
taken in evidence of an early and dense
population of that country, recently dis
covered. In one place stones and boulders
have been found arranged in the form of a
mammoth turtle; in another a serpent 350
feet lone. Of the latter, the county surveyor
says: Different colored stones have been
used to designate the nose and eyes, a large
white boulder about two feet in size making
the former, and pinkish stonc3, about the
size of one's fist, the latter. The proportions
of the serpent are said to be very perfect, the
lines of smaller stones make the outline fol
lowing the form of a serpent very closely in
all the proportions; the line is well denned
and swelling from a narrow point at the
neck to the renter, which is about twelve
feet wide, then "gradually taperiug oft to a
point forming the uil.
One day last week there were 2 14 deer and
antelope shipped from a small station in the
Bad Lands. ' The Mandan Pioneer deprecates
the wanton destruction of this choice game
in that section. It says: A young man came
from New York a short time ago and in a
short hunt in the Bad Lands slaughtered
twenty-seven deer. We say slaughtered be
cause we cannot conceive of a more appro
priate term. In a few years, at this rate of
slaughter, we shall have no game. Then
anothct cause of the destruction and disap
pearance of game is the rapid development
of the cattle business. In the rich pasture
along the Little Missouri where a few years
ago buffalo, antelope and deer roamed un
disturbed by the thousands, there are to-day
more than 300.000 cattle grazing — less than
a year ago there were not over 20,000 cattle
in that section. Thus does the denizen
of the prairie disappear before the advance
of his rival, the beef steer and the rapacious
Restive Under Civilization.
The new judge, who is now holding his
first term at Bismarck, is evidently groins: to
make his mark. The Valley City Times says
"Judge Francis, the new appointee for this
judicial district, is a strict adherent to form,
and is a regular martinet regarding proper
conduct in the court room. The Tribune has
noticed this in the Magill trial at Bismarck,
the first to bring the new judge into much
prominence, and says that the strictest quiet
Is enforced and the allies are kept clear,
while such a thing as smoking and "back
talk" is no longer attempted by the most
venturesome. The district seems to have in

of all creditors accrued. No preference is i
made in t.i- assignment except for vacjes
siucu November, and the nominal value of
assets Is JCSS.OOO. Total liabilities estimated
