We publish this week in supplement
form the constitution adopted by the
late Sioux Falls convention. By a care
ful perusal our readers will be able to
form a conception of its merits or de
merits for themselves, instead of relying
bn hearsay.
The authorities have discovered a
way to deal successfully with the Mor
mon question and it looks now as though
polygamy had to go. The method is
simply to arrest individuals under the
United States law and fine and imprison
them for unlawful cohabitation.
, The Mitchell Republican says that
iown is not a candidate for the tempo
rary seat of government and intimates
that it will oppose the constitution
ilraftod at Sioux Falls. This virtually
limits the contest to Huron and Pierre
and the struggle between them will be
rather lively. • ,

The small-pox scourge ip the cities of
Montreal and Quebec is unabated and
the authorities have the utmost difficultly
in enforcing any precautionary meas
ures to prevent the spread of the dis
ease. The ignorance of the populace
is an almost insuperable barrier to any
movement for their relief.
Prime's Crop Bulletin for October lays
great stress upon, the shortage in, this
year’s, wheat orop and says prices must
gradually increase from the present un
til another crop is made. It says the*
shortage is just beginning to be felt.
Prime is the best authority in the United
States on these matters and his opinions
are worthy the highest consideration.
j The present session of the diet prom
ises to be the most stormy the of
Denmark have ever witnessed. The re
lation of contending parties is strained
to the utmost and some violent scenes
are anticipated, as an attempt will be
made to force the king to comply with
the vote of the diet at the previous ses
sion and dismiss his obnoxious ministers.
A special telegram to the Pioneer
Press says the democrats of Beadle
bounty have issued a call for a mass
convention of democrats of south Dakota
to meet in Huton October 31, the day of
the republican convention, to take party
action on the constitution as adopted by
the Sicux Falls convention. It i.s re
ported that this action grows out of the
refusal! of the chairman of the territo
rial com mi fete to call a convention, al
though it is alleged he agreed to do so
at the late Aberdeen party meeting.
» «I W. Raymond, territorial treasurer,
passed through St. Paid Wednesday en
route from New York to Bismarck. To
h Pioneer Press reporter he said, the
feeling in north Dakota was soniewhat
divided on the subject of division and
admission of the territory. 80 far hi be
himself was concerned he would liko to
fcee the territory divided, in his opinion
the Sioux Falls convention had framed
& good document, and he desired to see
them attain their ends. As congress
how stands, hoWevdi*, there appeared to
him to be little hope of division. He
jjtos inclined to think the territory would

A delegation of Dakota democrats
is en route to Washington with a whole
trunkful of charges against Gov. Pierce.
They are said to have affidavits and
other documentary evidence of malfeas
ance in office and hope to secure his re
moval at an early day. Evidence of any
kind against a republican official is
easily procured at a time when demo
cratic aspirants are well nigh frenzied
with hope deferred;‘but, while we would
prefer seeing a Dakotain governor of
Dakota, we have every confidence in the
governor’s ability to preserve his repu
If the Sioux Falls convention wished
to economize and was non partisan, why
didn’t they let the printing to the lowest
bidder, instead of letting it to a republi
can office without bids?—[Watertown
We know something about the letting
of that same contract ourselves, Mr.
Democrat, having opposed it in the con
vention on the ground that the price
was exorbitant and that sufficient n6tice
had not been given. After further in
vestigation, however, we were convinced
that the work would be done by the
Sioux Falls Press as cheaply as by any
other concern in the territory, the sum
appropriated being merely the maxi
mum rate that could be charged, and so
hastened to do the contractors the jus
tice they deserved. We hope the Dem
ocrat will see the propriety of adopting
a similar course.
From a rather thorough investigation
of the movement of which the Sioux
Falls con vention was the initiatory step
we feel constrained to say that while
the people of Brown county may con
tinue to do all in their power to defeat
division of the territory they cannot af
fdrd to allow the county to be unrepre
sented in the convention to be held at
Huron on the 21st. The same reasons
why they wanted the county represent
ed in the constitutional convention hold
good in this instance, i. e., they want,
sentinejj there to guard their interests
and to do what they can to defeat any
little schemes that may and probably
will be concocted to place them in a
false light. Besides, there is just a
chance that the movement may amount
to something, and Brown county can
ill afford to throw that chance away,
slight as it may appear. At the very
worst the election of state officer? this
fall will be but a political pantomime,
as it were, as it ie not proposed to clothe
them with any power until congress re
cognizes the proposed constitution and
passes an enabling act in conformity
therewith —a contingency highly im
probable, to say the least. For these
reasons, and because no extra expense
will be entailed to the county, we hope
to see our people take such action as
will ensure them a fair representation.

deen, Thursday, over H. R. Blanding,
the republican nominee. The result
was caused by a split in the republican

byC. A. Bliss and others drawing votes

—Cor. Westport Watchman: Some
lunatic with his little match started a
prairie fire -south of Koto [McPherson
county] on Friday, which spread rapidly
to the northeast until about 4 p.rUi,
when the wind suddenly changed to the
north and brought it back. The wind
blew a gale and the fire assumed terrific
proportions, and at time forty miles
of fire could be seen. In its course to
ward the south it appeared to travel
nearly a mile a minute, and took grain
and hay stacks, claim shanties and
whatever loose property seemed to be
in its way. We have seen prairie fires
before, but never saw one like that. It
continued toward the east until Satur
day night, against an east wind, when
it went out, affor reaching the west line
of range 66. We are unable to give the
losses, but they are numerous, and sev
eral of them quite heavy. Grain, hay
stacks and buildings without number
went up in smoke. It was a grand sight,
though appalling, and from Willow
township could bo seen at One time
during Friday night two lines of fire,
One apparently above the other, One
being on the bills and the other in the
valley east of the hills, while In numer
ous {daces along both lines could be
seen bright tongues of flame, illuminat
ing tbit heavens, from burning hay,grain

damage doho, which at present it is im

It is hard work now to do fall plow
ing, as the ground is very dry and baked;
but still many are engaged in the labor
and some have finished.
J. B. Churchill went to the county
seat at Ashton on Saturday last. This
visit may have some connection with
our forthcoming election. Who knows ?
Stacking is not all finished hero yet
and threshing is progressing slowly—
not more than one-fourth of the grain
being threshed in this vicinity. The de
lay is occasioned by the scarcity of help.
From this on we suppose we shall
have plenty of caucuses, conventions
and electioneering until after the new
constitution is adopted. Well, they may
come; we can stand a large amount of
grief. .?•
To the discredit of our county it is re
ported that the Spink County Agricul
tural Society failed to pay the, premiums
awarded at the late fair at Redfield, or
even a pro rata share of them. We hope
this is not true.
The elevator men at Mellette are dot

Great damage has been done by fire
throughout the country, and in nearly
every case these fires were oooasioneiJ

by threshers, hainmen or by setting oul
