We welcome Bro. Battey into the charmed circle of editorial fellowship, as we have long felt that our city newspapers have badly needed some good religious blood injected into them. The IIKHALD has been the only one that has been thoroughly orthodox on all questions, constantly laboring to keep its subscribers 111 011 the right track. We sonienow feel it in our bones that our labors in this respect have not been entirely in vain and shall, as heretofore, continue to give our readers good sound religious doctrine, large allopathic chunks, but always sugar coated with good feeliiig and rotherly love. Now is is the time to subscribe and thus get your medicine regularly. By a faith ful and constant reading of the HER ALD—advertisements and all—you will get religion without knowing it. ITItKO^IAL.

The prohibition bill will be debated in both houses of the legislature on Wednesday, the 5th inst. The bill will probably engross a good share of attention during the rest of the week. The usury committee of the house have agreed on 10 per cent as the maximum rate of state interest, Sev eral wanted it live and six and others at 12, and the compromise was made as above stated. One of the most important bills in troduced this session is the proposal to submit to a vote of the people a change in article VIII of the constitution re lating to the leasing of school lands. As provided in the constitution the school lands must be sold, but in the light ol' Dakota's progress since the constitution was lirst drafted, it is be coming more and more apparent that a vast and perpetual fund can be laid up by the leasing of these lands in stead of selling them before they come to their full value by the rapid devel opment of the eomitn. .Many peti tions are pouring into some of our legislators to that effect, and Mr. Ster ling. the author and introducer of this amendment to the constitution, is only meeting the demands of a ]opn]ar claim that this should at least be set tled by the people themselves separate issue. 011 a MISSr.TO* m.M.liVATIO* The Secretary of the Interior will Approve a Hill KeeoimitentlinK Opening for *ettleiiietita Last Sunday's Pioneer Press con tained the following dispatch dated Washington, February 1st: A. s. Crostield, of Minnesota, and the commission that negotiated the Sisseton and Wahpeton lndiau treaty last summer, had a two hours' session with Secretary Noble to-day. They answered several points of objection which the secretary of the interior and Assistant Secretary Chandler had iound in the treaty, and before they left Secretary Noble told them lie would submit the treaty to the pres ident, with a recommendation that an act eu.bodyidg its provisions be passed by congress. One of the ob jections raised by Secretary Noble was that while the act creating the commission had authorised the pay ment by the government of 3 per cent interest on the proceeds of the sale of the lands, the commission I.ad promise ed 5 percent. Mr. Crostield held that 5 per cent was the usual rate allowed on moneys a trip to Aberdeen Wednesday last week in the interest of local lodge Knights of Labor. He was elected delegate to the general assembly. standing to the credit of Indians, and he saw no reason why an exception should be made in this case. When the bill passed congress fixing 3 per ce it it was held in con gress that owing to the nature of the lands this rate of interest would be ample to meet the wants of the In dians, but Mr. Crostield held that it was discriminating against these particular Indians just because they happened to have valuable lands. The secretary further objected to the terms of the treaty. It is S2.50. Mr. Crostield showed that it was less than would be netted to the Chippewas in Minnesota for their lands, and was less th^ti had been paid in several other cases where reservations had I been purchased. The commission (endorsed Mr. Crostield's position, i Several other objections of a technical nature were raised, but bv unimpor taut changes in wording were correct led, and at last the secretary approved I the treaty.
