The Hope Pioneer says: Rumor with its thousand tongues has been quite busy with the name of the -wife of a party living in Hope, who several weeks since left her husband, taking with her their little two year-old boy, declaring her intention of never returning here. She came back, however, last Friday and remained till Monday, when, leaving the child, she left again. HerJ proceedings are]heartless, to say the least. Says the Jamestown Alert: Dakota will survive all her difficulties, surmount all opposing obstacles, and will rapidly de velop into a great, rich and prosperous state. Her endless prairies will be dotted •with happy and prosperous homes. Her grain fields will vie with the golden streets of the New Jerusalem in beauty and wealth.

The residence of May Darling was bril liantly lighted up to-night and the grounds were beautifully illuminated.

The Fargo and St. Louis Air Line. | Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Obtonville, July 31. — The town of Or tonville, Big Stone county, Minn., yester day voted bonds in aid of the construction of the Fargo & St. Louis Air Line railway almost unanimously, there being only one ; vote cast against it in the whole town. The town of Tara. in Travers county also voted the bonds asked, and all the other towns in those counties will undoubtedly do likewise. The Fargo & St. Louis air line will pass through the centre of these counties, and will be of great benefit to them. The work of surveying or grading the road south of Wahpeton is being vig orously pushed and the road will certainly be finished from Fargo to Ortonville this year. Fish for Montana. [Helena Herald] Spencer E. Baird, of the 0. S. commis sion of fish and fisheries, in a letter to Gov ernor Crosby, promises to give careful consideration to the matter of iatroduo ing valuable kinds of fish into the waters of Montana, and from time to time supply for our streams such as are likely to be succeesful. The commissioner thinks there is no doubt that the supply of fish in the colder and purer waters of the higher regions of Montana can be increased by artificial means, and that in most waters and lakes tributary to the Missouri, which are not too alkaline, valuable fish can be introduced. It is sta ted that Mr. Livingston Stone, who has charge of operations on the McGloud river has been instructed to inspect the upper waters of the Columbia, with the view of establishing other stations in the future. For the present an endeavor is being made to increase the supply of salmon by hatch ing them where they can be obtained in the largest quantities and transferring the young fish to the upper waters. Constitutional Conventional Comments. Elk Point Courier: It is more pleasant than we can express to see so many of our farmers taking an active part in working up a proper interest in the election of con stitutional delegates. The indifference that seemed at first to be prevalent was only characteristic of our people. Indi vidual exertion in the management of their crops after a backward spring necessarily absorbed their attention and time, and now that the throng is passed, they are becoming awakened to a manly interest in their future welfare and the prosperity of the state which they are determined to inhabit. If there is a wide-awake, enterprising and patriotic citizen in Union county who is not fully convinced of the propriety and necessity of the measure, we do not know his whereabouts, or the manner of man he is. The election will occur at a time when the farmers (those who are more directly interested) will be engaged in cutting their grain, but owing to the convenient ar rangements made for voting, two or three hours will be all the time required to goto the polls, so that little or no neglect will result from voting. Sioux Falls Press: Next Wednesday evening the citizens of Sioux Falls city and township will be called upon to choose twenty-seven delegates to represent them in the county convention to be held here j- 1 : f.- THE ST. PAUL DAILYIGLOBE, WEDNESDAY Mu A tiN nS G ; AUGUST 1, 1883 Time Card, of Trains on Saturday afternoon/ to select Minne haha's eight representatives in the consti tutional convention. The number of dele gates to which Sioux Falls is entitled will, of course, give the township large influence in the county gathering, and the import ance of selecting good men is therefore self-evident, as the character of the repre sentation in the September gathering will be largely determined thereby . There is no personal nor political strife whatever in regard to the matter, the universal sen timent being that Minnehaha will want her very best men there. In every territorial gathering this county has cut a leading figure, and her reputation in this most im portant of all gatherings must not be cur tailed. Therefore as a matter of local pride, to say nothing of the general inter ests at stake, our people must see to it that good, able and ready men are chosen — keen men, with a knowledge of events and the true province of government. The different sections of southern Dakota will send up their brightest representatives, and Minnehaha must have delegates who will be able to maintain her standing among such men. The Quo Werranto Case. [Press and Dakotian.l "VI hat is known as the quo warrunio case against the members of the capital com mission opened this morning in the second judicial district court. Chief Justice Edger ton presiding. Judge G. C. Moody, of Deadwood, Bartlett Tripp, Gamble Broth ers and Dewey <fc French appeared for the people and Colonel W. F. Vilas, of Madi son, Wisconsin, and Alex Hughes, of Bis marck, for the commission. This case is so well known that it is hardly necessary to note even brief facts in relation thereto. The legislature at its last session passed a bill, which was approved by the governor designating Milo W. Scott, B. F. Spaulding, C. H. Myers, Alex Mc- Kenzie, G. A . Matthews, Alex. Hughe3. Henry DeLong, J. P. Belding and IJ.. D. Thompson as a commission to locate the seat of government for Dakota. The com mission organized and finally selected Bis marck as the capital of Dakota. Just after its organization action in the nature of quo warranto was begun in the district court on the complaint of District Attor ney Smith, citing the above named com missioners to appear and show by what authority they were actiug, the theory be ing that under the organic act a legislature could not delegate its authority. The fol lowing is the complaint: The Territory of Dakota on the relation of the City of Yankton vs. Milo W. Scott, Burleigh F. Spaulding, Charles H. My ers, Alexander McKenzie, George A. Mathews, Alexander Hughes, Henry De- Long, John P.Belding and M.D. Thomp son. The territory of Dakota by E. G. Smith, district attorney for the second judicial district of Dakota, complains of said de fendants and alleces: 1. That on the 11th day of February, 1862, the then governor of the territory of Dakota, pursuant to the act organizing the territory of Dakota, duly appointed the city of Yankton in said territory as the place for the first meeting of the legis lative assembly of the territory of Dakota, and duly appointing the time of Buch meeting. That the said legislative assembly met at the time and place so appointed, and afterwards, to-wit: on the Bth day of April", 1862, the said governor and legislative assembly proceed ed to locate and establish, and did on that day locate and establish the seat of goverment of said territory at the said city of Yank ton, by an act entitled "An act to locate the seat of government of Dakota terri tory," approved April 8, 1862, said city being the same place as the town of Yank ton mentioned in said act. That the said city of Yankton has ever since been and is now the lawful seat of government of said territory; and all the sessions of the said legislative assembly have been held at that place; and the territorial offices have been ever since held thereat; and all the public records, books, papers, documents and archives of said territory have been and still are kept at said seat of government; and said seat of government has never since been changed by the governor and legislative assembly of said territory as provided by said act organizing the terri tory of Dakota. 2. That the above named defendants were appointed commissioners for the pur pose of locating a permanent seat of gov ernment and the capital building of the territory of Dakota, under and by virtue of a pretended act of the legislative as sembly of the territory of Dakota, entitled "An act to provide for the location of the =eat of government of the territory of Da kota and for the erection of public build ings thereat/ approved March 8, 1883, which said appointments were and are in violation of said act organizing the terri tory of Dakota. o. That after that date, to-wit: On or about the 3d day of April, 1883, the said defendants as a pretended board for the purposes above mentioned under said pre tended act, without legal warrant, each usurped said office of commissioners, and without warrant have usurped the right, privilege and franchise of naming the seat of government under said pre tended act, and have ever since unlawfully held and exercised said office, right, privi lege and franchise, and are proceeding to change and to permanently locate said capital and seat of government ot said territory at some other place than the city of Yankton, under said pretended act, in violation of law and said act organizing the territory of Dakota. 4. That each of said defendants are usurping and exercising said alleged rights and franchises arising under said pretend ed act, and are drawing and are about to draw and collect each the sum of $6 per day for their pretended services as such commissioners, from the public moneys belonging to the territory, and from the treasury of said territory, and are also procuring a surveyor and assistants to locate said seat of gov ernment, under section nine of said pre tended act, at a like expense of $ 7.50 per day, and are drawing large sums of mon ey from the territorial treasury for al leged expenses as each commissioners for team hire, stationery and other expenses. Wherefore the plaintiff demands judg ment that each of said defendants is not entitled to said office, and that they be ousted therefrom. That said pretended act, and all acts done or performed by sai£ commissioners be declared illegal and void, and that each of said defendants be declared not entitled to exercise any right, privileges or franchise under said pretended act.

He is Dabbling in the Broad Field of Na tional Politics— Not at All Satisfied JWith Arthur's Administration. Sp ecial Telegram to the Globe.] Chicago, July 31. — The Hon. J. B. Chaf fe, ex-United States senator from Colorado is at the Grand Pacific and will remain over a day or two. Mr. Chaffee has been out of active politics for some time, but unless certain indications are entirely off it -would not require any vast provocation to revive his interest in it. He has appar ently abandoned all senatorial aspirations. Indeed, he remarked to a reporter that he had no thought of being a candidate next winter against Senator Hill, and is evidently figuring, if figuring at al? in the larger field of national poli tics. Mr. Chaffee while declining to be interviewed on political questions was led for a moment into a somewhat reminis cent view by the reporter who saw him and who accidentally referred to his pro nounced stand for Blame, before, and during the Chicago convention. "Yes," was the response, "but I wasn't very well satisfied with the outcome either." "This from a Blame man who would ordinarily be supposed to acquiesce at least in Garfield's nomination was something of a surprise. Mr. Chaffee did not choose to explain or enter upon a discussion at length, but from one or two little things which were learned subsequently, and from other sources the reader may be able to draw the inference that whatever disappoint ment he may have experienced relates, not to Garfield, who is in his grave, but to Arthur, who is alive and who is popularly credited with a desire to succeed himself. Mr. Chaffee came west to meet Senator T.ogan, and expected to do so at Denver. Hearing in Chicago that Logan had left Denver and would be here either yester da/ or to-day, he concluded to wait before proceeding further west. • ————— — — Truisms. Folly is like matter, and cannot be anni hilated. In all superstitions, wise men follow fools. — Bacon. To know how to say what other people only think, is what makes men poets and sages; and to dare to say what others only dare to think, makes men martyrs or refor mers, or both. — Mrs.Charles. The way to wealth is as plain as the way to market. It depends chiefly on two words — industry and frugality; that is, waste neither time nor money, but make the best use of both. — Franklin. A troubled mind is often relieved by maintaining a cheerful demeanor. The effort withdraws its attention from the cause of pain, and the cheerfulness which it promotes in others extends by sympathy to itself. "You, who despise yonr neighbor, are a snob," says Thackeray. "You, who are ashamed of yonr poverty, and blush for your calling, are a snob; as you are who boast of your pedigree, or are proud of your wealth." The ills we see — The mysteries of sorrow deep and long, The dark enigmas of pwmitted wrong — Have all one Key: This strange, Bad world is but our Father's school; All chance and change his love shall grandly overrule. — F.

Things being investigated, knowledge became complete; knowledge being com pleted, thoughts were sincere; thoughts being sincere, hearts were rectified; hearts being rectified, persons were cultivated; persons being cultivated, families were regulated; families being regulated, states were rightly governed; states being rightly , governed, the whole nation was made tran quil and happy. — Confucius. LOVE-LORN. In her cage by my window swings a bird, A beautiful bird with golden wing, And all day long, by a memory stirred, In a faint little treble 6he tries to sing. I list to the twitter, so soft and low, To the quavering trill that breaks in twain ; The silver song she recalls, I know — The song she tries to repeat in vain. '•0 Bird, my Bird, you never were meant To warble songs for the world to hear! Yon were made for the stillness of shy content And the quiet round of a homely sphere." Mabgabet Sangster. GLOBELETS.
