I 't i 11. rt jm iys rW I il u,- r-5 13? ilili .41 v i HEILLLD-ADYAXCE. Wm. W.DOWN IE, Publisher. "Ml LBA"NK, SOUTH DAKOTA This is from Secretaiy Carlisle of tlie treasury: 'I tlnd that I have unt more friends in Kentucky than I ever dreamed a man could have, and a queerer thing about it is that many of them claim to have made me what I am.'' Georgia is one of the southern slates that have settled the question of pension for Confederate soldiers. She pa'js a regular sum to those of her citizens who were wounded in the Confederate service. There are 3.200 names on this state roll. Texan people ought to walk chalk better than they do. In their state Is a vast chalk bed nearly as large as all England, extending from the lied river to the Itio Grande. It is of a quality admirably adapted to the manufacture of artificial marble, an industry assuming large proportions. The houses of San Antonio and Austin are built of chalk blocks. The South African diamond fields were opened in 18(57. A London statistican says that the diamonds mined from these fields since then, if put together, would weigh more than ten tons. Their value is something like 8350,000,000. If it is true that most of these stones have been purchased in the United States, then there must be a good many diamonds lying around in this country. Tve World s Fair Sunday closing war has assumed a i|ew aspect. The attempt is made by those who want Hhe exposition opened to have a bill passed in the Illinois legislature permitting the Illinois exhibit to be •hown to visitors on Suuc^fiy in spite •f the act of congress closing the fair on that day. Lawyers declare that if this bill is passed it will open the whole fair on Sunday, since the exposition commission is a body incor porated in Illinois. This would bring lip an important state's rights question. What is to become not only of Canada, but of England herself? •the financial depression of Canada is equaled if not exceeded in Great Britain. In spite of improvements cheapening the cost of manufactured floods, in spite of the fact that America has taken hundreds of thousands of Great Britain's poor off lier hands annually, at this time industrial statistics show the record of twenty-three people in every 1,000 as paupers. At the same time returns from tlie British trades anions show that of their members One in every ten is out of work. It is gradually becoming recognized tliat even consumption may often be Cured. But the best way to treat it 1$ in the special hospitals now provided for it. In the progress of ®cdical science it has become recognized, too, that consumption is a contagious disease, communicable through germs in the air and in food. In the special hospitals for con sumptives repeated cures and apparently permanent ones have been made. When it is remembered that more people are carried out of llfe by this disease than by any other, the fact that those on whom it fastens are now frequently cured sheds a ray of brightness upon the dark cloud of hopelessness which usually attends this ailment to the «Hd. The wealthy citizens of Buda-Festh io Hungary have anticipated by a little the rest of the wojld in the matter of getting the daily news. A telephone connects the residence of each w. c. with the office of the leading newspaper of the city. An excellent reader has been placed in charge of the telephone at the news paper office. Whenever a bit of important news comes to the office, it is immediately told off in a sweet voice to the w. c. at home. The w. c. places the tubes to his ears when the bell rings and learns all about the latest fire, scandal or gov ernment bill. The citizen can have his news in any language he wishes He can even lie in bed in the morning and listen to that soft voice telling him the latest news from ^IJover the world. Solomon, SardanapSlus or 28ero never enjoyed luxury like this. And it costs the Buda-Pebthian only about $9 a year.

Lounsberry of North Dakota, special agent of the g°neral land office, had served four years and two days, has notified him that his services are dispensed with.

The President has appointed George G. Dillard. of Mississippi to be consul general of the United States at Guayaquil Ezra W. Miller, of South Dakota, to be attorney of the United States for the district^ of South Dakota. One result of effect to increase trade with the countries of i-outh and Central America seems to be the increase in the exportation of Ameri can agricultural implements.

Iiragg, of Wisconsin, has been offered the Portuguese mission through the intercession of Senators Vilas and Mitchell. The 400 clerks in the postoftice department have been ordered to extra work between four and five o'clock each day briefling and filling applications for office. Senator Kyle received a set back from President Cleveland when E. W. Millers name was sent to the senate for district attorney for South Dakota. Kyle was amazed. He had backed another man and supposed his "pull'' would land his candidate. It is said that Senator Pettigrew put in a good word for Miller, but I ottigrew would not say this was true. Miller was legister at the Huron land office under Cleveland's first adminis tration. Vice-President Stevenson was also "turned down" in this case, for he recommended W. Duff Haynie for this place. The President made the following appointments last week: Thomas F. Bayard, of Delaware, to be am bassador extraordinary and pleni potentiary to Great Britain.

Young, of Georgia, to Guatamala and Hon duras: Edwin Dun, of Ohio (now secretary of legation at Japan) to Japan. Senator Ilansbrough says that he has received hundreds of letters from republican fourth-class postmasters in .Nujih DakvUt asking hiiu u# use his inlluenceto have them retained during this administration. He had replied to these invariably that, when he came to Wasnington four years ago as a member of congress he had insisted that all democratic fourth-class postmasters in North Dakota be put cut of office so that he could put republicans in. He believes that this rule should work both ways, and is politician enough to think that "To the Yictors belong the spoils." Senator Kyle has learned from Piesident Cleveland a rule that he will follow which will cause both satisfaction and dissatisfaction in the Western states. It is in effect that under no consideration whatever will my official in any of the land offices in the western states be removed until they have served their full terms, dating from the time they were appointed, but not from the date of confirmation. This means in substance that all registers, receivers and other officials in the various land offices throughout the counlry will be permitted to hold their offices for exactly four years. POLITICAL. Judge Allen B. Morse, of Michigan, will be appointed consul to Glasgow, an ffice whose emoluments are about $12,000 a year.

The republican tariff banquet at Canton, O., was a political success. Four hundred guests were present from various cities in Ohio. The oanquet was spread in the Taber nacle, a mammoth structure dedi cated to political purposes in 1884 with a speech by James G. Blaine. Speeches were made by Gov. Mc Kinley and many others. GENERAL DOMESTIC STEWS The trial of the armored cruiser New York was an unprecedented success, the vessel breaking the record of first trials and developing the fact that ?lie is the fastest vessel of her class afloat. The New York Times has been sold by the .Tones-Morgan interests to a syndicate said to be headed by Chas. R. Flint. Considerable life in surance money appears to have gone into the purchase. The price paid is reported to be $950,000. The sale includes only the newspaper plant. Nashville, Tenn., is in a state of panic, and the streets are filled with hundreds of excited citizens. In addition to the failure of the Com mercial National Bank, for $260,000. two more banks have closed their doors. They are the Mechanics' Savings Hank, with a capital of $500,000, and the Bank of Commerce, with a capital of $250,000. A so far unaccounted-for phe nomenon was seen in the western sky at San Francisco and as far south as San Diego. It had the appearance of a large electric light, but Hashed, flickered, changed colors —one moment being brilliant red, another white, then green, then blue —moving slowly from north to south, then gradually sank below the hills. A bank robbery, partaking of the daring shown at the famous Coffey, ville affair last October, was enacted at Caney, Kan. The only thing miss ing to make it more closely resemble the robbery in which the Dalt.ms took part, was t.iat nobody was hurt. The bandits got $4,000, and a good start on their pursuers and perhaps will never be captured. Caney is a small town close to the Indian territory line. O. W. Potter, the millionaire iron manufacturer who was sued by Ernest W. Dunnavant, an ex-newsboy who claimed $100,CC0 because, as he alleges, Potter had him railroaded to the penitentiary to keep him away from Gertrude W.

Mahany, from his post of duty in Ecuador, transmits a copy of the official journal of Quito, of the 25th of February, directing the flags of that distant republic to be placed at half mast, in honor of the late Mr. Blaine. The French ministry was defeated in the chamber of deputies and the cabinet has resigned. The crisis arose through the submission to the chamber by M. Lockroy of the report of the budget committee. There was an adverse majority of 5. Cholera lias appeared at llalosce, a market town of Galicia. Every attempt is being made by the town authorites to check the disease, but dispitc their efforts it is spreading. Three deaths from cholera have already occurred and a number of new cases are reported. The labor troubles in Lancashire, England, which ended by a comprom ise Saturday, take rank as the greatest struggle between capital and labor which the world has seen. The campaign lasted twenty weeks, in volved directly or indirectly 125,000 employes and cost in loss of wages alone $10,000,000. Each side was equally willing at the outset to en gage in the test of strength, and at last they were just as glad to call a truce with honors even. A Honolulu letter says the engage-1 ment of Commander Whitting of the United States man-of-war Alliance, to Miss Etta Ah Fong, daughter of Ah Fong, a wealthy Chinese mer chant of Honolulu, is formally announced.

What Allerton is to Independence, Storm was to Mason City. Every body was confident t^at this year the great stallion would easily break the world's pacing record, and on account of his loss there is deep regret. He was already entered for meetings at Independence, Minneapolis, Mason City, Sturgis, Mich.: Grand Rapids Mich.: Lansing, Mich.: Chicago, St. Joseph, Mo.: Sedalia, Mo.: Terre Haute, Ind.: Lvansville, Ind.:Lexing ton, Ky., and Nashville, Tenn.
