Although -every effort is being made to keep it quiet it h well known that there is a bitter fight raging between the two factions which go to make up the forty-two republican members of the senate. Nominally these factions are known as the old and the new sena tors mcl the apparent object of the light is to obtain proper recognition for the new senator., but in reality it is a right between the east and the west, the gold and silver republicans. Up to date the silver men seem to be a little ahead, but that assumption is based upon the sin cerity of Senator Chandler, of Xew Hampshire, who holds the balance of power in the caucus committee whWh is makiug up a list to till the vacancies on senate committees, and who has been loud in professions of friendship for sil ver. . Threats are being made of a revolt on tla part of the silver senators if they j do not get what they think they, are en titled to at the hands of that committee, Should this revolt actually take place, Senator Teller would be the western can didate for president pro tern of the senate. The democratic senators have agreed to allow the republicans to or ganize the senate if they cau agree among themselves to a sullieleut extent to do so. ' FREE SCHOOL BOOK DANGER. Now that the microcosmie rage is at its wildest and that the bacillus scare is creating hypocondriacs on every side, the following suggestions , might meet with the approval of the board of educa tion. They arc rules which have been adopted in Xew York city '-and anything good enough for Xew York is good enough for us : 1. The use of slates, slate pencils, and sponges shall be discontinued in all the public schools. -y 2. According to requirement, pupils shall be supplied with pencils and pen holders, each pupil to , retain those re ceived in a box provided for the pur pose, such box to be marked with the pupil's name. Pencils and penholders shall not be transferred from one pupil to another without suitable disinfec tion. 3. All school property left in the school building by a child sick with any contagious disease, and all such prop erty found in an apartment occupied by a family in which a case of smallpox, typhus fever, diphtheria, scarlet fever, or measles has occurcd, shall be taken by the health department for disinfec tion or destruction. 4. Books which are taken home by pupils shall be covered regularly once each month with brown manilla pa per. , . 5. Places for drinking water on the ground floors of the school building shall be discontinued, and a covered pitcher provided for each class room, in which fresh water shall be placed be fore every sessionvA numbered cup to be kept iu the class room, shall be issued to each pupil. Xo interchange of cups shail be allowed. CURRENT COMMENT. Dr Talmage commenced to preach at eongress before the regular chaplain had a chance to get in a word. The comn.ander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic will find that ask ing for more pension legislation and get ting it are very different things. It is Czar Reed's turn now,'' but some of those he is now walkingoifmay.be del egates to the nominating convention; then they'll have a turn. Republicans in the south aud west may well ask themselves why;.they are in that party, as they are iuvariabh' slighted when there is anything to divide. HEARD IN PASSING. Such an examination as Chief Conlin was subjected to in Xew York ought to to be resorted to by the Xew Haven com missioners. A business man would sat isfy himself that, a candidate for a posi sition in his employ was qualified before he hired his services. Why should not the police business of Xew Haven make a similar requirement. Xew Haven Resr ister. ....

The most interesting and significant incident of the election in Springfield the other day was the re-election to the school board, by a . handsome majority, of the young woman who was to have been turned down because she flatly refused to pledge herself to turn out every Roman Catholic teacher iu the public schools.

If we are to have a democrat to represent this district, he is as unobjectionable as an- democrat in the district.

Springfield Republican. LOST ALL AT POKER. PROPERTY NOW WORTH MILLIONS STAKED ON FOUR QUEENS. Cow ?iceIHt Island, at Minneapolis, Fasa cd Out cf Possession of Pierre Bottineau, Ills Connection With the Early History or Minnesota. There recently died at his home in Red Lake Falls a man who was so thor oughly identified with the early history of Minnesota, that to relate it without mentioning his name -would bo like try ing to make bricks without straw. This man was Pierre Bottineau, tho offspring of a French father and an Indian moth er, aDd he possessed all the characteris tics of both races. Mr. Bottineau was a native of what is now North Dakota, having been born 18 ruilos west of the place where Fargo, X. D., now stands. At the time of his birth Lord Selkirk form ad a colony of Swedes and Scotchmen near Fort Garry, and when Bottineau was 10 years of age these people began an exodus for other points. Young a3 ho was, Bottineau was an experienced guide, skilled in wood and prairie craft, and mcro than one cl Lord Selkirk's colonists ho piloted out of the wilderness. In many of the early expeditions ci tho United States government Pierre was employed as a guide and scout, and was one of tho principal members of the noted Sibloy expedition, which crossed the plains in tho early days. He was well acquainted with almost, eyery foot of the Dakotas, Minnesota and Wiscon sin, and at ono time was the owner of vast tracts of valuable land, which ho subsequently lost in cno way or an other. Mr Bottineau was a warm friend of James J. Hill, the railway magnate, having met him at St. Paul when that place was little more than a trading point and where Mr. Hill was employed as a freighter. In 1841 Mr. Bottineau took up a claim on the spot where St. Paul now stands, but after, having held it for a short time traded it for ahorse and cow, which he drove away to his homo in tho wilderness, little thinking that the land he had almost given away would in a few years be tho site of a great city. Later on Mr. Bottineau purchased for a small sum a large portion of what is now Minneapolis, but lost the greater portion of it through the dishonesty of purchasers and tho rest through his weakness for poker, a game which ho thought ho understood, but which other people understood better than he did. There is a story, which the elder resi dents of Minneapolis declaro to be true, that Bottineau was once the sole owner of Nicollet island, lying in tho Missis sippi river, which divides Minneapolis into east and west Minneapolis, and which is now ono of the most important business and residence districts in tho city and valued at many millions of dol lars, and that ho lost it during a game of poker. A party of men met one even ing at tho home of cno of them, so tho story goes, to play their accustomed game. Tho stakes kept growing larger and larger, until every jack pot contained a small fortune, even for that early day. Ever since the game had begun Mr. Bottineau had been losing steadily, but at last he was dealt a hand upon which he hoped to regain all his losses and win something besides. He was given four queens pat, and drawing one card, se cured an ace, leaving only four kings with which hishand could be beaten. As he saw or thought ho did, which amounted to tho same thing one of tho players discard a king, he considered his hand invincible and played it ac cordingly. His opponent also considered his hand a good one and promptly raised every bet made by Bottineau. Soon all tho players but Bottineau and his opponent dropped their hands and retired from tho gamo, after which they sat and watched the conflict. The table was heaped with money and tho personal belongings of the two men, who were wishing they had more to wager upon their respective hands. At last all the men possessed lay on the table in front of them, and it was Bot tineau's bet. ' Carefully looking over his cards, ha thought a moment and then remarked that all he had left was Nicollet island, which was onco the borne of Father Hennepin, one of the earliest settlers of Minnesota, his log cabin having stood upon a little mound in the center of the island up to a few years ago, when it was pulled down to make room for the' residence of Colonel King. This island Bottineau was willing to bet against 200. The bet was called by the man on tho opposite side of the ta ble and Bottineau laid down his four queens with a smile of triumph on his face. With a shout his opponent laid on the table face up, four kings and a tray. There was a dead silence for a moment. Then Bottineau called for writing materials, made out a deed to the island and loft the place. Since that day he never touched a oard or countenanced gambling in any form. After drifting around the country for a time Bottineau came to Bed Lake Falls, where ho took up a claim and where he remained up to the time of his death, at the ago of 8-1 years. Ho gradually acquired other property and left his heirs 'a valuable estate. With the death of Pierre Bottineau passes away tho last of. tho old time Canadian voyagers and guides, such an important factor in the upbuilding of the north west. He was the father of 2? children, only a few of whom survive him. The one best known is J. B. Bottineau, who spends much of his time at Washington as- the attorney of tho Turtle Mountain indians.
