SPAIN is again talking of emancipating the slaves in Cuba, the latest proposition being to free all the bondsmen in seven years after the passage of the emancipation bill. This might be satisfactory if there was any cer tainty as to to the time the emancipation bill will be passed. OTJB telegraphic report of the Wall street exci'ement yesterday, which appears in th market columns on the third page, will be found of unusual interest. The boom in stocks is of snob, an extensive character as to awaken apprehensions of serious trouble when the reaction comes. THE report of the Russian occupation of Merv, on the road to India, is pronounced untrue by the best authority. The report of its capture is thought to have been the cause of the hostile remarks of the Marquis of Salisbury at Manchester the other day, for England could not fail to regard such a movement as a menaoe to her Indian posses sions. THB Republicans of Louisiana are crying before they are hurt. The oonvention which met at New Orleans on Tuesday adopted a resolution protesting against the removal of Kellogg from the seat in the Senate whioh he usurped. We do not think it is the in tention of the Senate to kiok him out, though he richly deserves it, and the protest is hardly necessary. GEBMANT has decided not to return to the bi-metalho standard in her currency. One of the ohief causes of the depression in business in that country was the abandon ment of that standard, and it would seem as if a remedy should be sought through its restoration. The misfortunes of the coun try will awaken little sympathy in view of this neglect of a splendid opportunity to bring about better times. THE political outlook in New York contin ues to be favorable to the cause of the Demooraoy. Kelly seems to have made no perceptible impression in the interior of the State save on the line of the Erie canal, where his vote is placed by the best judges at from three to four thousand. It is admitted by his sup porters that his vote outside of New York and Brooklyn will not exceed seven thou sand, and this number will be more than off set by desertions from the Republican ranks to Robinson. IF the agent of tbe Associated Press in London was in partnership with the wheat speculators at Chicago and Milwaukee, he oould not do them greater service than he is now doing. It is said that the prospect of a war between England and Russia is the only thing that maintains the price of wheat. The press dispatohes are sufficiently warlike to keep up the feverishness, but when sifted down to bottom facts there is very little foundation to them aside from a little harsh language between the newspapers of London and St. Petersburg. THE Chicago papers, naturally, perhaps, are opposed to the improvement of the Mississippi river as suggested by the Quinoy oonvention. They fear that if the naviga tion of the river is improved a large part of the gTain grown in the northwest will find its way to Europe by way of New Orleans, and Chicago would therefore lose the tolls on grain it now collects. The people who will be benefitted by the improvement the producers of the Mississippi valley will not be likely to consult Chioago's wishes in the matter. CANADIAN justice is an improvement on the quality of the article dispensed on this aide ot the border. Sir Franois Hinoks, a former member of the cabinet, has been convicted of making false reports of the &' J^Uf-^i^'^TO^Wi tiHnbe. IJJ'W" ^""^Plll"!^!!^ condition of a bank of whioh he was one of the directors, and will probably goon be playing chequers with his nose behind an iron grating. Meantime Chicago, St. Louis, New York and Boston are thronged with de faulting bank presidents and cashiers, and there doesn't seem to be a thought of punishing them. SENATOR WINDOW, in a speech before the river improvement oonvention at Quincy, spoke of the Romans as a commercial peo ple who steamed and sailed down noon the vessels loaded with corn, etc A suppressed laughter was observable in all parts of the house, whioh the Senator noticed and at once corrected himself in regard to the use of steam at that early day. A gentleman pres ent remarked that it called to his mind a picture he bad onoe seen of the killing of Abel by his brother Gain, in which the mur derer was represented as being armed with a double-barreled shot-gun, and a breech loader at that. THB Republican papers have undertaken the job of providing a Presidential candi date for the Democrats. For a long time they have been trying to force Tilden upon the party, but finding that he is really a for midable candidate they have laid him aside temporarily, and have undertaken the job of helping Hancock along. We would suggest to our over-officious cotemporaries that the Democrats are perfectly competent to choose their own candidates. They are apt to look with suspicion on any man who is approved by their adversaries. THEBE is likely to be a little unpleasant ness between Gen. Franklin and Gen. Burn side growing out of the Fitz John Porter trial. It will be remembered that at the first trial certain letters from Porter to Burnside, severely criticising the conduct of the campaign by Pope, were submitted, and had a very preceptible effect in producing a verdict of conviction. Gen. Franklin has recently written a letter to a friend in which he characterizes Burnside as a fool or a knave to thus make public what was intended only for his eye. The question that is now agitating Burnside's friends is whether or not he will call Franklin to account for his language. If he does the latter may come to the conclusion that it is not best to speak the truth at all times. HATES" EPFRONTERT, We have at various times heard of a qua! ity denominated "monumental cheek," but have never until recently seen it exemplified fully. This exemplification we find in the report of an interview between a correspon dent of the New York Tribune and Mr. Rutherford B. Hayes, who, by the grace of a seven to eight electoral commission and the forbearance of a greatly outiaged people, is filling the office of Prt sident of the United States. The interview, after covering a wide range of political topics, oonoludes as follows: "Haven't we great reason to fear," I asked, "that the Democrats wilJ count out ournominee, oo matter what his majority may be? They have both houses now, and their power over tbe returns is absolute. Are they not denounc ing the supervisors'IMW to make pretense for throwing out the vote of States where it is en forced?" "1 think public opinion will prevent them from adopting such a course," replied the President. "The independent voters and in dependent newspapers, siding with those of the party to be defrauded, would form too strong an opposition to be defied. A few moderate Democrats in Congress would have the power of preventing the carrying out oJL such a scheme No if we have say twenty majority of the eleotoral votes, I think there will be no such danger as yon suggest." "But suppose the result should depend upon one smill State like Colorado or Oregon, and the Democrats should set up a claim of irregu larity and throw out that State." "Then there might be trouble but I think," continued the President, falling back into his easy-going optimism, "that public sentiment would find a remedy and settle the difficulty in the right way. Here we find a man who set pnblio senti ment at defiance less than three years ago, that he might seize upon the h'ghest office in the land, pratinjpabout the power of pnb lio sentiment to prevent any suoh outrage in the future, and assuming an exalted virtue when speaking of the possibility of suoh a thing. Has there ever been a more conspio uous example of monumental cheek? The assumption that the Democrats have any desire or intention to count'out anybody properly elected as President or Vice Presi dent is a gratuitous piece of impudence, not sustained by even the suggestion of facts. On the contrary a bill is now pending in Congress to prevent the possibility of such a thing being doneto guarantee to every State the right to representation in the elec toral college by the persons having the larg est number of votes. This bill was drawn to prevent a recurrence of the shameful bribery, perjury and intimidation through which Hayes managed to secure the votes of two States that had chosen Tilden electors. It is the probability of the passage and en forcement of this law that alarms the Re publicans at this time. They see that the people are in no mood to submit a second time to such a gigantio conspiracy against their right to self-government as thatof 1876 But the consummation of suoh a scheme the disfranchisement of one or more of the Democratic Statesis the only hope the Re publicans have of retaining power for another four years. It was with this idea in view that they fought so persistently the repeal of the laws authorizing tbe use of the military and supervisors and marshals at elections. All this enginery will be employ ed on behalf of the Republican party. If the voters cannot be intimidated they are to be charged with committing frauds, and the returns from cities, connties and States thrown out to an extent sufficient to change the result. This is the programme of the future, and it is a fear lest the pending law shall interfere with it that is responsible for the implication that Congress contemplates the counting out of the legally elected Presi dent. The complacency with whioh Mr. Hayes refers to publio sentiment would lead one not conversant with the facts to suppose that he had the highest regard for the expressed will of the peoplewas a very paragon in his obedience to its slightest expression. In stead of this he is the one above all others in the country who has shown the most utter contempt for it. Defeated by a large ma jority of tbe popular vote, and defeated also by the electoral vote, he consented that his sup porters should bribe returning boards, sub orn the perjury of witnesses, intimidate those who had knowledge of the falseness of their pretenses to a majority, and finally ac cepted an office which has enabled him to reward every one of his rascally partners in orime. More than two hundred and fifty-six thousand dollars are taken from the publio treasury annually to pay these perjurers for r^i%j Ipgejpwj^M'ftr' iiiiijiiiijaii r' 'iMwii their testimony, and as rewards for doing the' dirty work required of them. Mr. Hayes is right in saying that pnblio opinion will prevent another rape of the Presidency. The remembrance of how he attained office is too fresh in the minds of the public, and the remedy is too near at hand to permit it. It would be better for the man who attempts it that a milPstone Were tied to his neok and he drowned in the depths of the sea. The people have been shamefally misgoverned for the past fifteen years. They have enjoyed liberty only by the sufferance of the authorities, and have been defrauded of it whenever it suited the con venience or was necessary for the interests of the Republican party. They are becom ing impatient under suoh a yoke and propose to free themselves, no matter what the cost. The Republican [party must abdicate in favor of an organization more in harmony withthe spirit of ourinstituti3ns. This must be a government of the people, for the peo ple and by the people in fact as well as in name. We have seen the last man in the executive chair who was not fairly elected to it, and the sooner the Republican party makes up its mind to abide by the popular choice, the better it will be for it. STATE SUPREME BIGHTS IIT THE COURT. The supreme court of the United States is now engaged in hearing a number of cases of national interest. Nearly all of them in volve, in one phase or another, the doctrine of State rights, whioh is admitted to be at present the leading issue in our politics. With the present composition of that tribu nal we can hardly expect an entirely non partisan deoision, although some of the judges may sink their partisanship beneath their judicial positions. At any rate, tbe decisions, whatever they may be, will be final and of binding force until reversed. One of the questions already argued was taken from Virginia, and involves the right of colored men to claim seats in the jury box. It will be remembered that the su preme court of Virginia deoided that jury service is not a right, but a duty which should be required of only suoh citizens as the court in whioh the cases were set for trial should regard as fully qualified, and that the court had the right to exclude from the panel any citizen or class of citi zens at its discretion. The cases at issue in the appealed case were two negroes indicted for murder. The counsel for the defense demanded that the panel be made up of an equal number cf colored and white citizens. The court, perceiving that such a course would defeat the ends of justice, denied the request. The question is not whether col ored men shall be excluded from jury duty in all cases, but whether they have a right to demand a seat in the' jury box when the interests of justioe will be endangered by their presence. There are several cases that involve ques tions of jurisdiction between State and fed eral courts. Some cases have been trans ferred from Stats to federal courts that, in the opinion of many good lawyers and ju rists, were not subject to federal jurisdic tion. Two of these have already been ar gued, and several more are yet to be heard. But the most important case of all to the general publio is one involving the consti tutionality of the supervisors and deputy marshals election law. This case was certi fied from the district court of Cincinnati and will probably be argued before the close of the present week. The question involved is of the utmost importancewhether the State or the federal government shall assume control of elections for President and mem bers of Congress. It. has been the custom for more than a century for the States to regulate all elections of whatever nature, and as this is not one of the powers delegated by the States to the general government in the organic law of the land, and has never since been surrendered, it must of neccessity still reside in the States. The arguments pro and oon will be read with general interest, and the decision looked for with anxiety, for men of all parties regard the law as it stands a dangerous encroachment in the direction of monarchism. It has been defended by the representatives of the Re publican party beoause of the tremendous power it gives to that party in the control of electionsa power that has in the past proved efficacious in defeating members of Congress run by the Democracy. If the de cision is reached by judicial process we have no doubt of the result. THE COURTS. Ramsey County District Court. [Before Judge Wilkin.] JTJBY CASES. R. Von Minden vs. John A.

THURSDAY MUKA1NG, OCT. 23, 1879. THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. An Inspection of the Adams SchoolRe. pairs Suggested-The Fight Between Cold and HeatDisease ImminentIn teresting Exercises Recommendations. Continuing in publio service the GLOBE visited the Adams school yesterday. Just here, before entering into the details of the observations had upon the Adams school, it is not amiss to declare that the GLOBE has a good purpose in these visits, and the inspec tions are already serving to attract attention to the publio schools. Suoh attention as, may it be hoped, will awaken the demand from indignant parents that their ohildren be no longer exposed to certain sickness from the ill ventilated buildings, in whioh the ohildren are confined for hours, without a fresh breath of air, unless it brings sick ness with its gusts of oold. It isn't a ques tion of taxes, but of life and death. Life if the authorities will remodel or devise means to furnish air death, if the ohildren are to be kept housed in rooms where it is a fight between extreme heat and extreme cold, either giving, as the buildings are now arranged, an opportunity for disease to fast en upon pupil and* teacher alike. In respect to tbe complaints already ut tered by the GLOBE, the Adams school is lit tle or no better than the others named. A OHEEBLESS SCHOOL HOUSB. The building is well enough on the outside, but the interior is cheerless enough to give anyone a lasting attack of the horrors. The walls are smoke begrimed, the wood work would swell with vanity over even a touch of paint. So far as cleanliness is concerned, the building is well enough, but being barren of suoh re pairs as are mentioned, soap and water, scrubbing and the muscular use of broom or duster can't give the shine of cheerfulness. The class rooms are large, have high ceil ings, and in this respect are somewhat bet ter arranged for ventilation. But the very height of the ceilings, the walls pierced by four windows, give the roomstbe appearance of barns. Here, as in the other schools, the only means of ventilation is by the windows, and in consequence there's the usual fight between currents of cold air and a breath laden atmosphere superheated by an im mense oast iron stove. The temperature cannot be regulated. The ohildren next to the stove are roasted, while the ohildren un der the windows shiver. The exception likely to this condition is found in Miss Hand's, the principal, room, for the better, and in Miss Gunnip's room for the worse, if it be possible. The first named room, while heated with a wood de vouring stove, has had a partial attempt made at ventilation by sticking in two or three small ventilators or gratings. This room, too, is somewhat more cheerful than any other, due, evidently, to Miss Hand's desire to make tbe best out of a bad bargain, by a slight ornamentation of the walls with pictures or some suoh taking object. ABSOLUTELY DISGRACEFUL. Miss Gunnip's room is [simply abomina ble. It is situated on the first floor to the rear. It is something on the 6 by 9 order, its dimensions being wholly inadequate to the accommodation and comfort of the ohil dren attendance. They are simply hud dled together between two windows and against a huge stove. Cold and heat with a vengeance. IN OASE OF FIBB The doors\of all the claw rooms swung on the hinges inwardly, or into the rooms. Bad in case of fire, when a score or more of obildren, frenzied with fright, would huddle up against the only means of egress and prevent escape. In other respects, the avenues of escape are fair. A broad stair way at the front and a narrow one at the side give a way out doors. BLINDING LIGHT. The windows stretoh up to the ceiling, making long, narrow slits in the walls, through whioh the light pours and is reflect ed from the varnished desks with injurious effect upon the eyes. There are no shutters or blinds, except some half-riven curtains, to exclude or by which to regulate and modu late the light. For the matter of that, all the schools examined are shutterless and without blinds. Daily, 233 children gasp for breath in this school. They are generally under 12 years of age, the olasses enrolled comprising the 1st, 2d, 3d, 4th and 5th grades with a pri mary department. Miss Hand is in charge of the 5th grade, 24 pupils. Miss Patten has charge of 35 ohil dren of the 4th grade. Miss Davidson, in charge of the 3d grade instructs 28 ohildren. Miss Manning has the 3d and 2d grades, numbering 36 scholars. Miss Dorsey's olass, 2d grade, numbers 41. Miss Gunnip has charge of 34 of the 1st grade, and Miss Cummius has a crowd |of 34 little ones of the 1st grade or primary department under her charge THE DISCrPLTNB AND INSTBUOTION. While the conduct of the ohildren is generally good, a fault In the assignment of too much work to the teachers was detected, and which could and ought to be remedied by relieving the principal from having any class in charge. Thus she would be free to give her undivided attention to the discipline of the whole school and exercise a constant supervision over the intellectual training of her pupils, for after all everyone of the ohildren are com mitted to her charge, and she's directly re sponsible to parents and the board of edu cation. The publio are invited and nrged by the superintendent and the board to visit the schools. When the public does come, as in fact they did, yesterday, to the number of three or four, Miss Hand is called upon to escort the visitors through the building and make explanations to suoh inquiries as may be made. Meanwhile her olass is without a teacher. IMTEBESTnva EXEB0ISE8. Several of the classes were at recitation, exercises being given in spelling by the sec ond grade, Miss Dorsey. The youngsters managed to miss oftener than once or twice, but for such little ones did very well. Miss Patten's olass, fourth grade, did admirable in mental and written arithmetic In fact this study is taught practically and with conscientious oare in the schools, so far as visited. Per haps nothing in the publio sohool system of tuition is so worthy of commendation as the attention paid to arithmetic, and the pro ficiency shown by the children, even to the youngest, who talk figures understanding^. Miss Manning's class, third grade "A," was exercised in reading. Here tbe fault so com mon to ohildren in reading was observed: they hurried along in a sing-song voice, tripped over words, caught 'em up and tumbled along to the end of the verse. The teacher interrupted frequently, and is untir ing in her efforts to correot this habit of fast reading. Miss Gunnip's class, first and second grades, were*engaged in drawing under Prof. Bond's supervision. The little ones are in tensely interested in this study, introduced this term, and already show a marked degree of proficiency, many of the simple figures being drawn with great aocuracy. The visit closed with a return to Miss Hand's room, where her class, fifth grade, were called to recitation in geography. South America was tbe theme, and the children evinced a better acquaintance with that far off region than some old settlers, even, have of Ramsey oounty, though they came here along with Father Hennepin. BEOOMMBSDATIONS. Oa the whole the visit WM an interest* *r%\, ing one. Miss Hand, the principal, is familiar with her duties, and her children, in behavior, show that she does not neglect it, but exeroisea control in a kindly way that makes them eager to obey, not to displease. Tho remedies needed are suggested above, and need no repetition. Visit the school and they forcibly address themselves, even to the most unobserving. In con clusion, this recommendation should not be omitted: Miss Gunnip's room should be oloaed it is unfit for use as a sohool room, It might be made the princi pal's office, and a recitation room adjoining Miss Hand's room,with the unoocupied seats in her room, would furnish sufficient accom modation for the pupils expelled from the closet now occupied by Miss Gunnip and her children. Another teacher should be em ployed, to allow the prinoipal more time to exeroise a constant supervision over her sohool. 8upreme Court.

Opinions have been filed in the following causes: Dorillns Morrison, respondent, vs. Joel B. Baasett, appellant. a SyllabusA defendant who had entered into the use and ocoupanoy of premises under a demise or written lease from plaintiff, not under seal, by the terms qf which he agrees to pay an amonnt of rent quarterly for a definite time, cannot, after having paid the quarterly rent for a portion of the time, and while remaining in possession, lawfully re fuse to make farther payments as they fall due on the sole ground that he was the owner in lee of said premises when the lease was made, and that plaintiff had no title thereto. Order denying anew trial affirmed. CORNELL, J. The St. Paul Sioux City railroad company, appellant, vs. the Minneapolis & St. Louis railway company, respondent. SyllabusUnder an agreement between plain tiff and defendant companies between whose lines of road there was a rail connection at Mer riam Junction, the defendant received from plaintiff for said junction eight of its cars loaded with wheat, for transportation and de livery to oonsignee at Minneapolis, a point on defendant's road. By the terms of ssid agree ment defendant was required to haal the cars over its road, having exclusive charge and con trol thereof, make delivery of the wheat, and than return the same, either loaded or empty, to the plaintiff at said junction, in as good con dition as when received, ordinary wear and tear excepted. Both parties were to share in the profits of the transportation of tbe wheat and other freight so carried, and plaintiff was to receive from defendant, in addition to its share of such profits, a stipulated compensa tion for such use of its said cars. While being so used by the defendant the cars were wholly destroyed by fire at Minneapolis, without any fault or negligence on its part, amounting to want of ordinary care. Held: That defendant was not liable to plaintiff for such loss, either as a common carritr, toiler for hire, or other wise. CORNELL, J. State of Minnesota vs. B. B. Galusha, respond ent. SyllabusHe wrongfully, and without au thority of law, cut and carried away timber standing on lands belonging to the State. In February, 1876, and the state auditor start ed an account for the stumpage of the timber, for the scaling of it, and for interest upon the amonnt of such stumpage and scalingin which account acknowledged he owed the State for such stumpage, scaling and interest, 92,204.10, and agreed to pay the sum on Nov. 1, 1876 and the auditor, in consideration of the defendant's guaranty of payment of the name, extended the time for payment to that date. In consideration of this extension, de fendant guaranteed the payment of the ac count on the said Nov. 1st. with 10 per cent, interest. Held that, under chapter 35 of the laws of 1874, the auditor had authority to Bet tie with for the stumpage and to state an account therefor, as also to defer or extend the time of payment of the amount of such ac count, and that, therefore, his promise to pay and the defendaut's guaranty were each grounded upon a legal consideration. The judgment is reversed and judgment directed to be entered for the plaintiff. BEBBX, J. Church Incorporation. Articles of incorporation of the Norwegian Evangelical Lutheran Dale congregation of the oounty of Goodhue were filed in the of fice of the secretary of state yesterday, the object of whioh is the construction of ohuroh and school buildings at Cherry Grove, in said county.

ThirdHe must make yearly contribu tions to said congregation, unless exempted therefrom by the congregation. FourthHe must not be a member of any secret society, nor under the discipline of the congregation, nor for any other reason denied the right of suoh admission ,to thiB association. U. S. SUPREME COURT. The Question of State and Federal Juris- dictionThe Maryland Election Cases to be Taken np To-Day. WASHINGTON, Oct. 22.No. 720State of Ten nessee, plaintiff, vs. Jas. M. Davis upon divis ion of opinion in the circuit court of the United States for the middle district of Ten nessee. Argument continued by Attorney Gen. Devens for defendant, and concluded by James G. Field for plaintiff. In continuing the argument on behalf of the defendant the attorney general maintained that both the judiciary act of 1879 and subsequent legisla tion now under consideration, providing for tbe removal of certain cases from State to federal courts, are valid and constitutional* that the right of a State to vindi cate and preserve its peace is subject to the graver rights of tbe United States to preserve and vindicate their powers* that the aci complained of was done by de fendant in the performance of his official duty to the United States, and that this fact consti tutes the federal ingredient which gives juris diction to the federal courts. The right of the United States to thus protectits officers and to hear accusations against him, is indispensable to the enforcement of laws. The gravity of tbe charge can make no difference to the right. No statutory process will authorize the removal of an indictment for assault as in the case of Jenkins, 2 Wallace, Jr. C. C. reports "It will be one for murder." The existence of official returns and the cl iim that the alleged crime was com mitted in the performance of that duty afford the requisite ground for removal of the cause. The attorney general farther maintained that evm if under existing laws there could be no regular jury tnal in the federal court, it would by no means follow that the cause couldn't be removed. It would still be remov able and it would be for Congress to remedy the defect, Finally propriety and necessity of appeal to federal courts by federal officers, imprisoned for acts done by them under color of office is everywhere recognized, and if the defendant cannot be tried in the United States circuit, the truth or falsity of facts alleged in his petition should be ascertained by examina tion upon habeas corpus, and he be either dis charged or remanded, as the result may require. To morrow the court will take np the cases of the Maryland election judges, which involve the constitutionality of the federal election laws.

I Correspondence of the Globe.] KANDAN TOWNSITE TBOUBLCS. BISMABOK, D. T., Oct. 19.Yesterday was a lively day in Mandan, the new town across the river. It will be remembered that at the last term of the district oourt in this oity Judge Barns deoided the Mandan land cases in favor of the Northern Paoifio railroad. Mandan, not unlike every new railroad town, had a large number of lot jumpers. These men, as a rule, know that they have no right to the land whatever, but jump the lot, put up a building and Btart in business expecting that they will effect a compromise with the parties who obtain rightful titles from the railroad company. This did not work in Mandan. The law al so gives the true purchaser all improve ments that may have been made by the jumper upon his lot. This was quite an item in Mandan, as there were several quite ex pensive buildings on jumped lots. Yesterday, under instruction of the railroad company andin company with the owners of the lots, sheriff MoKenzie went over to OUST THE JUMPEBS, whioh made considerable consternation. He commenced at one end of the town and took everything clear. If a man couldn't show true title to the property upon whioh he was located be was told to skip. This did not meet with the general approbation of the 'lumpers." Some of them intimated a com promise, but the officer would not hear to it. He held a high hand and was bound to play it out. One man was told by the rightful owner that he oould stay on the property if he wanted to, providing he would pay $3 per month rent including back dues. The "jumper" was about to do this and went in to consult his wife. She objected and locked the door in the officer's face. McKenzie only weighs a little over 200 pounds, but when he hit that door it fell to pieces like a pane of glass. The woman was pale with rage when she saw her household furniture being moved out upon the street and ejaculated that if she was a man she would ''pound the stuffins out of him." Many objected to giv ing np the improvements they had made, and in some instances they were allowed to remove the buildings. As sistant Engineer Lee, of the Northern Paoifio, owned the lot upon whioh Mat. Edgerly, justioe of the peace, has erect ed a $300 house. Mat. didn't object to get ting off the lot, but he did not want to give np the building. He had to go, however, and Lee now has the key. Edgerly was using the building for saloon purposes, and can stay there if he likes, by paying rent to Lee. The "jumpers" are quite hostile, but they have no one to blame but themselves,. They have had abundant opportunity to buy the land at a low figure and upon easy terms. Threats of BUBNING THE TOWN have been made, but it is not likely that any further demonstration will be made, as most of them consider the case as did the gam bler who sat down to play with a supposed "tender foot." A large roll was up, and the gambler threw down fonr aces. His oppo nent had only one ace, but he had four kings* and a cocked six-shooter, which won the pot. THE EXTENSION is progressing rapidly^good weather being in its favor. The track is out over sixty miles, and will soon be in sight of the Little Missouri, at whioh point quite a town is be ing started. Keith's locating party will be stationed there this winter. Preparations are being made to work the Bad Lands this winter. The bridge over the Little Muddy will be six hundred feet long. Its loca tion has already been determined by Con trolling Engineer Doane and Chief Engineer Rosser. The line of the N. P. is now sur veyed to the Yellowstone, whioh river it strikes near Glendive. It is reported that a town is already being started there another chance for lot jumping. Two daily trains now run between this city and Man dan. THE MISSOTJBI is very low, but steamboats manage to navigate with small loads. Steamboating at this season of the year is a losing investment, but the year's contracts for delivering freight have not yet been completed. The Eclipse, owned by Pitts burgh parties, belongs to no line, therefore has had no paying boats below to offset her losses. She was out sixty-three days from Bismarck and then was obliged to leave her freight at Cow Island. She loses about $8,000 by the trip and will probably have to be sold to pay the orew. NOTES. The N. W. E. S. T. Cp. have been kept yexy busy since the Deadwood fire. Tfce warehouses in this city are filled with freight for the Hills and the company are rushing it through as fast as possible. Nearly 300,000 pounds have been shipped in the past ten days. The passenger business is simply im mense. Sixty went through last week. Extra ooaohes are run every day. It is the shortest route to the Hills, and consequently the best at this season of the year. The Pierre route is uncertain owing to the low stage of the water in the Missouri. Only forty-eight hours is re quired to run from Bismarok to Deadwood. The Bismarok Flouring millsix runs of stonewill be in operation in about three weeks. These are the finest in the territory. The main building is five stories high, and is a very imposing-looking structure. Ten oar-loads of lumber were required in its con struction, and it contains seven car-loads of machinery. Over two tons of nails, spikes, bolts, etc, were used in the building. There being but little wheat raised in this vicinity this year, most of the cereal will have to be shipped from Fargo to supply the mill this season. Next year enough will be raised at home. Business men are enjoying a surprising good trade and the hotels are all full of guests. Seme days a blanket and a mattress on the floor is as good as can be obtained. About twenty new buildings are now in course of construction. The new Episcopal ohuroh, a beautiful piece of archi tecture, is nearly oompleted. Next season the building will be mostly of brick. To show how thoroughly Democratic Bis marok is, the Tribune, a Republican organ, issued an extra Wednesday giving the result of the Ohio and Iowa elections. But twenty one of them were sold. The rooster at the head was enough, and tbe news boys were told to pass on. The GLOBE is sold on the streets every day. BISMABGK. THE FEDERAL COLLAR. Independence of Thought Exercised Upon Pain of Dismissal. NOBWAUC Oct. 22.Internal Revenue Com missioner Baum wrote-J. H. Van Auken, tobac co inspection at Petersburg, as follows: "This office is informed you are exerting your influ ence for readjustment, and thereby repudiation of the State debt of Virginia. This is looked upon by thinking men as immoral, and there fore inconsistent with the dignity of an officer. Please inform this office upon receipt of this letter whether this be true or not, and if true accompany your statement with your resigna- tion." The reply of Van Auken says he is the only Republican officer in Petersburg whose po sition on the debt question is well defined, fie says he has been active combatting tbe repu diation movement, and asks for the name of the authorof the charge. Commissioner Baum in reply said the information had come to him through a letter written by the postmaster gen eral to the secretary of the interior. The aama]of his iafonnoat hadnot been.given.

A recent report to the British board of trade goes to show that between July 18, 1876, and Aug. 14, 1878, no fewer than fifty-two ships laden with coal disappeared, forty-one suffered more or less by reason of spontaneous combus tion, and twenty-four from explosion. The fifty-two ships which disappeared represented a value of about $1,500,00), and were manned by 483 men. who went down with them. One of the retired warriors from Zulnland tells a good story. He was at Borke's Drift, and was witness to one of the following inci dents. A clergyman clerical attire was bard at work handing out partridges to the men, and he did it with a will.

There lives in St. Louis an aged couple who have not spoken to each other sixteen years though living together and sharing the same table. Her refusal to sign a deed was the cause the husband's anger. Their only means of communication has been a daughter, who mar ried a few weeks ago, and has since died of a congestive chill. Even this catastrophe has not unsealed the lips of the obdurate couple, and they continue their lives of solitude. jbM.
