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. Railroads in all sections will be
vexed with the perpetual motion of the
ever unquiet car and train in transporting
her commerce*

The residence of May Darling was bril
liantly lighted up to-night and the grounds
were beautifully illuminated. Sweet
strains of mnsio emanated from the house,
and a large number of ladies and gentle
men in airy costumes and swallow tailed
coats wandered about. It was elleged that
there was a party, and the attendance was
said to be large and to consist of the al
leged ellegant people of Fargo.
Libel Suit Postponed.
The libel suit of A. W. Edwards against
the Fargo Republican company was called
this morning in the district court. The
defense made a motion for an adjourn
ment, which was argued for them by At
torney Twomly, and for the prosecution by
District Attorney Ball. The court ordered
the case continued provided the defense
would pay §30 attorney's feeH and the cost
to which the prosecution had been in get
ting witnesses, which defense agreed to do.
The costs will amount to the neighborhood
of $ 500. It is asserted by many people
that the defense is in a bad place and the
only hope is to fight the case off until wit
nesses for the prosecution get dis
gusted and refuse to attend. Major
Ewards states he is ready to come
into court and show that the Protection
Life Insururance company did not defraud
anybody and was straight and honest in
all its dealings. The defense will have to
assist in conducting their case, the Chica
go attorney who prosecuted the president
of said company in the trial of the case
when he was acquitted.
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
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.-
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
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. E. G. Smith.

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.

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.

To warble songs for the world to hear!

And the quiet round of a homely sphere."
