Jax Cooke is going <o hold the golden spike while President Villa td sends it home with a silver- headed beetle. •. It will take more than two P's to play a three card monto game on the reading public of St. Paul and Minneapolis here after. Notwithstanding all the vigilance of the government and local authorities, yellow fever is increasing its score of victims at Pensacola. The P. P. is not a success as a fence acrobat, and is getting its toggery badly torn on the see-saw between St. Paul and Minneapolis. They have had a shower of fish down in South America where they are having the black small-pox, the black vomit, the yel low fever and everything in the mortality lino but a northern cyclone. The response of St. Paul to the appeal for aid from Rochester was prompt and characteristic. It took but a few minutes to place §5,000 at Gov. Hubbard's disposal. It is to be hoped that others will aid tho stricken city. One of the most popular patent medi cines labeled under tho name of "bitters" has just been analyzed by the government at Washington and 82 per cent, of its 100 have been found to be whisky, the balance being water and flavoring extracts. There's no telling how many debilitated systems have been toned up by this healthful tonic — Old Crow doctored . It is not very seemly to tive a parly and advertise all the inner rViailsof arrange ments, but an alleged newspaper in this city having been guilty of tit, indecency as well as breach of faith iv publishing the controversy relative to Minneapolis' interference in tho Y:l!ard leceptionat St. Paul, we give the Minneapolis wail in another column. It is interesting as showing the sad state of feeling in our neighboring city — a frame of mind which is greatly to be regretted. There is really no occasion for excitement. The St. Paul city government have tender ed, the hospitality of St. Paul to President Villard and party upon the occasion of the completion of the Northern Pacific. They will invite the city government of Minne apolis to be present and participate. It will be an affair of municipalities and not » Washburn affair. That is all. THE RESULT IN 18S4. The New York Sun prefigures the presi dential result in 1884 not only plausibly, hopefully, but with irresistible logic, thus: The main issue in the next presidential elec tion will be whether we shall have a democratic, honest, economical administration of the gov ernment. Can there be any doubt of the result In & contest waged on such grounds? Let ue look at the figures. Gen. Hancock would have been elected if he had received the 35 votes of New York. He ob tained only 17 in the north. The rest of his .155 came. from the south. There is not the slightest reason for suppos ing that any stat<\ north or nouth, that sup ported Hancock in 183»>, \*il' fnil to vote for the demociatic candidate in If- 4. If we add the 36 votes of New York to the Hancock votes, this would determine the struggle in favor of tthe democratic nominee. The six votes of Con necticut and the 15 "of Indiana would carry lhe democratic majority up to a handsome figure. Some doubtful states may also fall into line, and make the triumph of honesty over profligacy especially memorable in the history of the country. The republican party must go! MR. BLAINE TO THE FRONT. Quite a strong current seems to be run ning through the Republican ranks, just now, in favor of President Arthur's nom ination in 1884. Even in Ohio, the lament ad Garfield's state, where antagonism might be expected, if any where, the Republican state convention heartily endorses Mr. Ar thur and his administration, as eminently wise, conservative and just. And many a leading Republican journal the accredited organ of Republican public opinion, seems to be striving* to create a sentiment in favor of Arthur. It (cannot charitably be believed that this comes from a patrio tic, bnt rather from a selfish) mercenary Motive. But with all these notes of preparation, Mr. Arthur is not destined to have a walk-over triumph to a nomina tion. Formidable competitors will arise, and chief among them, even, may be Mr. Blame. Mr. Arthur has been long trying to cultivate Virginia through that non descript political adventurer, Mahone. But Mr. Mahone does not carry the Republi can party of Virginia in his hand. He rode into office on the Readjnster crest, a movement inspired by an attempted repu diation of Virginia's public debt, or at least a portion of it. Mr. Arthur affiliates With Mahone and his gang of Readjusters in antagonism to the Republican party of Virginia. Mr. Mahone is not a Republican. The Republicans of Virginia repudiate him. He is not a Democrat. The Democrats nave no sympathy with him, or confidence in him. He is a Readjnster, pure and sim ple, a partial repudiator of the state debt. He is tho leader of a repudiation faction, and it is not a little singular, that tho President should nurse that faction, and in so doing turn his back upon the Republi can partyof the State, when he and his syco phants are so carefully nursing the Repub lican party in other States. At a recent Republican State convention in Virginia* the convention expressed a preference, not for Chester A. Arthur, but for James G. Blame ac a pres idential candidate in 1884. This brings Mr. Blame to the front as a candidate for nomination. Arthur may rely upon Ma hone to marshal southern delegations in bis favor, but only to reap disappointment. The brief administration "of Pres ident Garfield favored Mahonism and Mr.^laine, if he did not advise it,' acquiesced in it. But on the ascession of Arthur, Mr. Blame denonunced Mahone and avowed his sympathy with the Repub lican party of Virginia. Now, the action of that party, if Mr. Blame acquiesces in it,' places him in antagonism to Arthur or any other man, for the nomination next year. The movement thus inaugurated in Virginia, will crystalize around him, and he will be a formidable, and quite likely a successful competitor for the presiden tial nomination in the next Republican national nominating convention. BEATEN AGAIN. The Red Caps Beaten at Ball Play by the i'aciflcs of Omaha. 'Yesterday afternoon the Red Caps of St. Paul, and the Union Pacifies of Oma ha, played a game of base ball on the Red Cap grounds, which resulted in a victory for the visitors by a score of sto 1. The game was the closest and most interesting played here this season, and was witnessed by the largest number of people that have attended at any of the this year. Salisbury, who pitched one season for the old Red Caps several years ago, occupied the box for the visitors and pitched very effectively in deed. Both pitchers were batted with con siderable freedom, and good fielding alone prevented more run-getting. It was a very pretty game and will be tried over again this afternoon. The feature of the Red Caps was the pitching of Hogan, only seven hits being made off his delivery. The catching of Barnes was very good, al though he is credited with two passed balls. Nettleton did some good work on third, making good stops, and his throwing to Lawson was very accurate. Worrick at short made one of the best stops of the game. Sibley did good hitting as did Nettleton, who got m a two baser. Galvin would have crossed the home plate on Lawson's safe hit to right field but he missed it and was shut out by Baker. Lawson did good work on first base, put ting out fifteen without an error, receiving well earned applause. The pitching and catching of Salisbury and Baker for the visitors were the features, the Red Caps getting only six hits. The fine base run ning of Foley and the hard hitting of the visitors throughout the game were noticea ble. Both clubs meet again at 2:30 this afternoon, and all admirers of the game will have an opportunity of teeing a game contest between two very good clubs. Griggs will appear, and no doubt some very sharp work will be done. The follow ing is the score: UNION r-ACTFICS. 18. TB. A. PO. E. B.

New Yobk, Aug. 22.— Henry George was the first witness before the senate committee on labor and education to-day. In answer to the question whether he could present any facts on the subject of labor, George replied that facts could bet ter be obtained from the workmen them selves. There was one general fact, how ever, that a feeling of extreme dissatisfac tion exists among the laboring classes; their condition is not improving with the increased prosperity of the country and there is in his opinion no direct conflict between labor and capital, but between labor and monopoly. The wages in each employment is governed by cer tain circumstances, but they must all v depend upon the * wages obtained in the most productive industry in the country, and here this industry is agriculture. The wages are higher in the new countries, because the soil has not passed so largely into private hands, and wages will not sink on an average below what a man can get by applying his labor to the soil. There is no such thing, he said, as general over-production, although there may be a special over-production. The secret is there is under-production in something else, and the laborer can not obtain work and thus get the means of paying for the articles he needs. Harmony to he Sought For. New Yobk, Aug. 22.— this morning's session of the federation of organized trade and labor unions of the United States and Canada, the legislative com mittee appointed last year at the Cleveland convention, reported encouraging progress had been made in the formation of local unions and in increasing the memberships of the unions previously formed. The re port reviews the history of the labor agi tation in the past year, and efforts will be made to obtain legislation favorable to working men. It was recommended that a prize of $50 be offered for the best essay on trades unions and strikes, and it was also suggested that steps be taken to secure harmony and unanimity among all trades and labor organizations of the country. The Great southern Exposition. Louisville, Ky., Aug. 22.— Southern exposition has been opened the past weak, and its records show that 100,000 persons have entered the building, and this does not include the attaches. The visitors are six times more numerous than at Atlanta in the corresponding period, coming from all sections of the country, but the°South is most largely represented, the Eastern and Northern people reserving their visits until the cold weather, which in our section will make the Southern climate more in viting. Visitors are surprised and delight ed with the immensity of the progress made. The hotels are full of people and the city is alive with sight-seeing strangers. Dramatic Collapss. i Special Telegram to the Globe. Chicago, Aug. 22.— George Edgar dramatic combination is bursted. If a collection should be taken up among the members and every dollar they possessed shelled out, the lint would contain less than $25 and that among twenty-five people, most of them famous in the dramatic world. The story is a long one. The less told of it the better. Clxntt:uiua. OnAHAQUA, N. V., Aug. 22.—Competi tive examinations have been in progress in various departments this morning. At 10 Dr. Dewell, of Chicago, lectured on the modes of preserving nerve health. At 11 Joseph Cook, of Boston, lectured to G,OOO people, on "God in history in our day, or j the seven modern wonders of the world." ' l-tLB; ST. rAIjL,.

' ' Additional Committers Appointed and the Bill Fairly Set in Motion— The Grievance ■ of Minneapolis Set Forth by a Loral .• Newspaper and Col. W. S. King. ■ • . Arrangements for the reception and en tertainment of the Northern Pacific rail way excursionists are progressing admira bly, and from present indications the en ergetic action of our public spirited citi zen?, their liberality and indefatigable perseverance, is going to result in the most elaborate demonstration ever given in St. Paul. Another long and animated meeting of the executive committee and the commit tee on reception and programme was held at city hall yesterday morning. In the absence of Mayor O'Brien, ex-Mayor Rice presided and the session was with closed doors. The session was taken up with discussions and the interchanging of views as to the best plan to be adopted, and the work is now fairly under way. The principal work yesterday consisted in the appointment of sub-committees to act with the main committee on recep tion. Among others the following committees were appointed: A sub-committee to receive and entertain the Ger man guests, who are to arrive in this city a week from next Saturday; Mr. Gustav Willius is the chairman, and the commit tee will go to Chicago, where they will meet the visitors and accompany them to this city. The gentlemen composing the commit tee are: Gustav Willius, : Ch'm, M Auerbach, P 11 L Hardenbergh, Wm Liudeke, Arnald Kohlmann, Ansel Oppenheim, Albert S^heffer, William Yon Darn, Mat Holl, Dr J H Stewart, Ferdinand ITarrsen, F Willius, Paul Hauser, Sr., H A Castle, C H Lienau, W P Murrey, Geo Reis, Geo Benz, Frank Bruexr, Hermann Trott, < 'wired Gotzian, CStablman, it W Eltzner, Dr G Stamm, AR Keifer. A sub-committee to receive and enter tain the American and English guest?, with Mayor O'Brien, as chairman; this committee will alo go to Chicago where they will receive the guests and escort them to St. Paul. The names of the committee are as fol lows: Hun C D O'Brien, Mayor. Members of the city council of the city of St. Paul. Gen R W Johnson, Wm P (lough, Hon .Ino B Sanborn, Hon Gieenleaf Clark, Hon John Farrii gtou (fen Anderson, Hon P H Kelly, Hon W 11 Merriam, Mr J J Hill, " Hon Wtn Dawson, H P Upham, Alien Manville, 11 M Newport, E W Winter, Hon James Smith, Jr, Hon Geo L Becker. A committee to arrange for cheap trans portation by boat and rail to all who wish to attend the celebration; John S. Prince, man. It was decided that the report of Gen. Sanborn should be translated into German and form a part of a book which is to be gotten up as a souvenir. The executive committee reported the following resolutions, which were adopted: Resolved, That it is fit and proper that we celebrate an event of so great impor tance as the completion of the Northern Pacific railroad from St. Paul and Lake Superior to the Pacific ocean, by public speech, banquet, bonfire, military parade and illumination. Resolved, That we invite to join in the festivities the governor, state officials and judges of the supreme and state court:, United States authorities, officers of the United States army, with the civil authori ties of Minneapolis, Stillwater, Duluth, Superior and all incorporated cities on the line of the Northern Pacific railroad ' Resolved, That the military organiza tions and the fire companies of the city, in full uniform, all civic societies in regalia, and all trades, manufacturing interests and crafts be requested to join in a grand procession through the business streets . Resolved, That all citizens on the princi pal business and residence streets be re quested to decorate and, at night, illumi nate their business houses and dwellings, and that all stores, banks and manufactor ies be requested to close their places of business at 11 o'clock a. m. on Monday, in ordar to give all classes of our people ho opportunity to participate in the cele bration. The committee on invitations met in the mayor's office yesterday afternoon, and as usual, the doors were closed to re porters. About 100 different styles of programmes were inspected and discussed, and by taking the best features of quite a number a most elegant card was agreed upon. These will be printed directly. A meeting of the committee on German guests will be held at the mayor's office at 4:30 o'clock this afternoon, and every member is requested to be present as busi ness of importance will come up. The committee on programme and re ception will meet at 9-30 o'clock this morning at the council chamber and it is desirable that all the members shall be present. Disgruntled Minneapolis. Mr. W. D. Washburn seemed to be still possessed of the idea that there was to be a joint banquet and telegraphed Mayor O'Brien yesterday morning, asking what decision had been reached. Mayor O'Brien being out of town he was notified that an answer could not be given until today Oar friends at Minneapolis seem to be rather sad over the fact that Mr. Villard is to be appropriately entertained at the eastern terminus of the Northern Pacific. The following screed from last night's Journal gives their side and shows how bad thay feel also: The gentlemen composing the Minne apolis committee, while perfectly calm and good natured, unite in representing their treatment by the St. Paul committee as shabby in the extreme. The leading St. Paul men seemed to be consumed with envy and hatred of Minneapolis, and old matters which everybody supposed were dead and forgotten long ago, were raked up as an excuse for what the St Paul men evidently realized was the mean and contemptible position they had made up their minds to assume. THE OAKES INVITATION. Before recapitulating the -esult of the meeting it will be well to show what prompted the visit of the Minneapolis gentlemen. They went down for the pur pose of carrying out an arrangement pro posed by the Northern Pacific manage ment itself, as the following letter from Mr. Oakes under date of the 10th inst. will show: Hon. W. D.Washburn, Minneapolis, Minn. : My Deae Sib - Your favor of sth received. In regard to the proposed entertainment of the gaosts of this company, our idea was that the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul should join in giving the banquet to our guests at Minne tonka on Monday, September 3, at 6p. m. Mr. Villard with his German guests will reach St." Paul on Saturday morning, the Ist of Septem ber, and he proposes visiting the wo cities on that day and. then go onto Minnetonka for the spending the Sunday at that lake. The other guests will arrive at Minnetonka on Sunday and will remain over there that .day". On Monday there will be a second visit to St. Paul and bl in neapolis, the guests returning that evening to Minnetonka in time for a banquet at 6p. in. ;.:"■;-; T. f.oakes. " The Pioneer Press, in its report this morning, represents the Minneapolis com mittee as preferring a request that Minne apolis be allowed ts join ' with St. Paul in the banquet and other addenda of the re ception. This representation is false. The Minneapolis men preferred no such request. They simply stated what they came down for, viz: To arrange for Min neapolis' participation in the reception ac cording to the general understanding as expressed in the letter of Mr. Oakes. They did not need and certainly had no inten tion of asking any favors of St. Paul. Tha pioposition of the Minneapolis committee met with immediate and violent signs of opposition. Minneapolis was accused of coming in' at the eleventh hour and seek ing to detract from the ! benefits to accrue to St. Paul from an elaborate celebration. Pat Kelly seemed especially vindictive. He accused Washburn, Langdon and King of being hide-bound, of having done much Jo foster bitterness, and brought up the old matter of the Minneapolis fair having been held the same time the state fair was held in St. Paul, with a view of injuring the latter city, accused Minneapolis of snubbing St. Paul in the propo sition to establish a joint race-track, and also attempting to appropriate all the honor and "run" things at the engineers' banquet at the Hotel Lafayette. These aspersions were backed up by Ablert Scheffer, Wm . Lindeke and others, and the assertion was also made that the gen tlemen comprising the Minneapolis com mittee had come down on their own hook and didn't represent the council, as they wanted to exclude Mayor Ames and Aid. Glenn from participation in the affair. How baseless this assertion is may be known from the fact that the committee of the council, represented by the subc-om mittee at St. Paul yesterday, was appoint ed .by the council on a written request preferred by Mayor Ames. The names of the committee will be found below. The Minneapolis men, although their patience was sorely tried by the small aad contemptible spirit displayed by the St. Paul committee, and by the insults heaped upon them, preserved their tempers and conducted themselves like gentlemen. Col. King merely expressed his astonishment at the raking up of old issues that were supposed to have been dead and buried long ago, after so many recent expressions on the part of St. Paul in favor of har mony between the cities. The final result of the negotiations was that the St. Paul committee resolved, in the language of the P. P., '-to play it alone,'' and to exclude Minneapolis from participation in the reception or banquet, but to allow a few Minneapolis men seats at the table as guests! How the proposition was received by Minneapolis, «md how the citizens gen erally look upon it, is vigorously expressed in the following ■ r.vi'i . INTERVIEW WITH CoL. KING. A Journal reporter found the colonel at the board of trade room as serene and smiling as a May morning, and proceeded at once to business. R. — I suppose you have read the report of your committee visit to St. Paul yester day as published in this morning's P. P. Col. X. — Oh, yes. I always read that paper when I can get hold of it. It's a very readable paper, especially when the editors get mad or have an attack of dys pepsia. Yes, I have read the report you refer to. Rep. — Well, what have you to say about it? Col. X. — Nothing, my dear sir, noth ing. It speaks plainly enough for itself. Comment is unnecssary. Rep.— But did you really say that the Minneapolis committee "crawled on your bellies to the St. Paul fellows and got kicked for your pains?" Col. X. — Now,.now, my dear fellow, what a question. Just think of it. Doriluj Morrison, W. D. Washburn, R. B. Lang don and my wicked self, "crawling on our bellies before St. Paul." It would be just like us, wouldn't it? It's "a way we have," ain't it? St. Paul expects it of us, don't she? Why, even our usually jovial and rolicksome "broth of a boy"Pat Kelly, who was out of temper and off his mental equilibrium yesterday, must have blushed for . shame when he read that foolish statement. • -.VV Rep. — The Pioneer Press says the Min neapolis delegation came down _ "on their own hook" and didn't want to go to the council, as they wished to keep Mayor Ames, Alderman Glenn and others from active partici nation in the affair." How is this? Col. X. — Well, that statement is a very proper companion fjiir to the "crawling on our bellies" story. Of course it is a very silly and foolish lie, coined, probably with the hope of exciting jealousy and making trouble here at home. But like all such trash, it will tumble into the gut ter unnoticed. Rep. — What does the Minneapolis com mittee propose doing, new that St. Paul declines to make a joint matter of receiv ing Mr. Villard and his guests? Col. X. — The committee will speak for itself and in its own way. The people of Minneapolis have always shown themselves entirely equal to all such occasions and emergencies. But one thing they wont do. They will do no foolish, no small thing in this matter; but will act in a dignified and becoming manner as befits our city, and the character of our coming guests, as well as the important event it is proposed to celebrate. R. — Did Mr. Washburn say, as reported in the P. P. to the St. Paul men, that a re fusal of the offer of Minneapolis would in tensify the local bitterness between the two cities? Col. X. — He said nothing of the kind. In the first place, Minneapolis had made no such offer. The Minneapolis commit tee went to St. Paul simply to assist in carrying out the expressed wishes of the Northern Pacific management. Mr. W. did remark that a quarrel between the two cities at this time over the manner of entertaining these guests, on an occasion of such great interest to both cities, would, in his opinion, be about the most hu miliating spectacle that« could be con ceived of. Taking effect Monday, the 27th inst., the eastern roads expect to begin making di versions of grain shipments destined to Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Bal timore, and ordering the western roads to deliver such shipments as are consigned to the Chicago & Grand Trunk railway to the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railway, and those consigned to the Pittsburg, It. Wayne & Chicago railway to the Baltimore & Ohio railroad. Shippers, in order to avoid confusion and expense, should be careful to have the final destina tion given on such shipments before de livery into the eastern yards. Savannah, Ga., Aug. 22. The suspension of S. G. Haynes & Brother was made for the purpose of liquidating accounts, and will only be temporary, A new partner ship will be formed by L. Haynes and John Elton, both members of the old firm. No new failures to-day. Assets sufficient to cover all obligations. The educational institution of the chris tian brothers and four large business blocks were destroyed by fire at Port an Prince on the 7th inst. Loss $250,000. CASUALTIES. THE GBEAT EMPIRE OIL WOESS FIBE, New Yobk, Aug. 22.— A fire broke out shortly after 11 this morning in the pack ing store of the Empire Oil works at Long Island City. The shop is a brick struc ture 150 feet by 700 feet and over 1,000 men and boys were employed in the shop, and the wildest excitement prevailed among them. The flames spread rapidly and the shop was soon a seething mass of flames with which the local fire depart ment were wholly unable to cope. The tin shop building, 175 by 250 feet, next caught which was followed by the barrel shop of about the same size. The flames next spread to one of the largest agitators in the yard containing 50,000 barrels of oil. The Brookly fire department were called on for aid and several engines quickly responded, but, although they worked hard the flames spread in every direction. At this hour the Lard Oil works are in great danger. The damage already done is estimated at $500,000. Patrick Cooney, a workman is very badly burned, and three other workmen are also injured severely. James Clare was badly injured by a falling wall. The fire is be lieved to have been(caused by a workman accidentally dropping a hot soldering iron in a keg of lard oil. The loss by the Long Island oil fire is set down at $500,000. It was confined to the company's works. BIG SAW mill bubned Winnipeg, Aug. — The extensive saw mill belonging to the Rainy Lake lumber company at Rat, Portage was burned yes terday; loss $350,000. The excitement of the occasion of the fire was greatly in creased by a rumor that it was occasioned by boundary troubles now existing between Manitoba and Ontario. THE "MYSTEBY" UNDOUBTEDLY LOST. New Haven, Conn., Aug. 22. — The fact that the bodies washed ashore at West Falmouth, Mass., were dressed in yachting suits and that on one body was a life pre server marked C. H. Natham, leads to the conclusion here that the drowned were two of the crew of the missing yacht Mystery. The yachtmen borrowed four life preserv ers from the steamer C. H. Natham. Boston, Aug. 22. — The yacht Mystery which sailed from New London for Nan tucket, August 11, and not since heard from, had on board Leicester Sargent, of New Haven, Rupert Sargent, of New York, Mr. Bartlett, of New York and Mr. Hawkins, of New Haven. Leicester Sar gent is a son-in-law of Mr. Glenn who belongs to Cincinnati. Mr. Glenn and Leicester Sargent's wife were spending the summer at Nantucket. Sargent left home with the party above named to join them. Mr. Glenn thinks it possible the yacht may have been blown off the coast and tho passengers might have been picked up by an outward bound ve?sel. Mrs. Sargent and mother have returned to New Haven. The three bodies recently picked up are clad in yachting suits and wearing life preservers and are supposed to be of the missing party. TWO DEOWNED YACHTMEN WASHED ON SHOBE. Fbemont, Mass., Aug. 22. — Yesterday the dead body of a man dressed in a yacht man's shirt with a life preserver on was found at West Falmouth, and this morning another body was found near the same place. The remains were buried above high water mark so that they may be in a position to be taken up for identification if necessary. FATAL FIBE AND BOILEB EXPLOSION. Chicago, Aug 22.— The large paper mill of Howard Lewis in Springfield township was burned this morning. While the fire was burning the boiler in the mill explod ed, killing John Morrison and seriously injuring two or three others, including Lewis, the proprietor. The loss is about $80,000, nearly covered by insurance. The cause of the fire is supposed to have been spontaneous combustion of rags. FATAL BAILBOAD ACCIDENT. j Memphis, Aug. 22. — The west bound pas senger train on the Memphis & Little Rock railroad which left here at 5 o'clock yes terday afternoon met with an accident last night four miles west of Forest City, Ar kansas.

The base ball game today between the Fargo and Elk River clubs resulted in a victory for Fargo by a score of 18 to 4. A good game was played by the Fargo boys, who only made eight errors though the day was windy and bad for fielders. One home run was made, one three base hit and twelve base hits. The Elk River boys mado five base hits. G. I. Staples, of Elk River, acted as umpire and E. E. Durgin, of Fargo, as scorer. The umpir ing of the game was very satisfactory. Is It Sit Mill. From the following paragraph taken from the Fargo Republican, curious ideas might be formed. A statement, as of fact is made, and a conclusion drawn which looks like sarcasm. This would re mind one of the dog that bites and wags its tail at the same time: • The presidential party is in close tele graphic communication with Major Ed wards. President Arthur knows that just as long as tho good old man is on deck the country is safe and the foundations of our modern civilization are secure. * The Board of Equalization. The territorial board of equalization has concluded its session at Bismarck. The highest rate of taxation in any county is three and eight-tenths mill?,, and the low est two and eight-tenths mills, making the average just three mills on each dollar val uation. The total valuation, not includ ing the railroad lands, is §70,000,000 or above. The difference in assessment be tween north and south Dakota is great. The portion of lax for the payment of th; interest on all outstanding debts is four tenths of a mill on the dollar. This in eludes the interest on the bonds issued to build and complete nine public build ings. Ah Important Convention. The conference called by the mayors of several different cities of north Dakota, to take action in regard to the action of south Dakota in assuming the name of Dakota for the state, was organized to-day. Col. W. C. Plummer, of the Fargo Repub lican, was elected chairman and E. A. Hen derson, of the Dakota Capital, secretary. The following preambles and resolutions were adopted: Whebeas, The people of Dakota living south of the forty sixth parallel of latitude have called a convention of the people of that section only, to meet at Sioux Falls on the sth day of September, to consider the question of statehood; and Whebeas, The promoters of said con vention in an aggressive and unauthorized manner are appropriating the name of Dakota, which the people north of the forty-sixth parallel alone have made fa mous as a trade mark all over the civilized world; therefore be it Resolved, That a convention of the citi zens of that portion of the territory lying north of the forty-sixth parallel be held at Fargo on the 12th day of September, to take definite action in the matter, and to consider any collateral issues regarding statehood that may be presented. And Resolved, That the representation be the same as at the convention held last year at Grand Forks, with the addition of two del egates from every county organized since then and one delegate from every unor ganized county in north Dakota. There were about thirty representative men present from various portions of the territory, but what is generally termed "The Ring" was conspicuously absent. A resolution was passed which stated that the sense of the convention was for division. But the appropriation of the name would be fought to the bitter end. The general sentiment was that wheat from north Dakota had made the territory a grand name and great fame all over the civilized world, and for a few cow counties down in the south part to try to steal the emigrative reputation would not only re sult iv a grand kick but it would, if per sisted in, bring about an organized effort to defeat their plans. Dakota wheat is a source of fame, and all comes from north of the forty-sixth parallel, and south Dakota seems to be posing in the attitude of plunderer cf the fame for selfish and unholy purposes. The Argus and Republican, of Fargo, will publish editorials to-morrow approving of the convention and the purposes for which it was called, which is more noticeable as it is the first time these papers were ever known to agree on anything. How They Squirm. Under the above head the Bismarck Tribune attempts in away which is ridicu lous to any fairminded man to explain the question of bribery and corruption as ap plied to the governor and his capital com mission. They only, however, publish in a sensational form statements which were made in the Gloee at the time the plans were accepted. It is not possible at this time to get the significance of the act of letting the contracts to the Bismarck man, and it. does not seem to be known whether he is a man with a '"jobbing" reputation or not. The Tribune article is as follows: When Architect Buffington was in the city a few days since, he told tho reporter of the Tribune some interesting facts which were corroborated yesterday by sev eral prominent citizens of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Two youog men competed for the honors of designing the capitol of Dakota, They were rather fresh, and, not understanding the business to a proficiency which would insure success in the construc tion of a building of the magnitude and grandeur required, they failed to realize the air castle they had. framed in. their mind's eye. Returning to Minneapolis and St. Paul they immediately proceeded to circulate damaging reports about Arch itect Buffington, the commission aud govenor. In fact every man in SfiJi Bismarck of business or political prominence was included in their circle of victims. Bat a lapsus lingui let the cat out of the insecure bag and placed the squealers in a rather pre carious position. Here is one remark: '•We tried every way possible to have ocr plans accepted. After explaining the vir tues of our designs and giving the com- j missioners the necessary amount of taffy, j we offered $10,000 to have them decide in ' our favor. .'But as that was as much as we could afford, Baffington must have raised us, as he was successful." Now, that sounds well, doesn't it? The very men who committed fraud by offering bribes, tarn their toy pistol batteries loose on the honest men who refused the subsidies and accuse them of corruption. Rep. — did they approach with bribes? .- ;■,'';.' Gant.— they said that Alex. Mc- Kenzie was.the "big gun" of the commis sion, so thhy "tackled" him. Rep. — What success did they have with him? '].;:■;-• Gent. — They said the d- n schemer wouldn't listen to them, so he must have received a larger sum from some one else. "Why," said one of them, "I showed them the plan of the Albany (N. V.) capitol, which is one of the finhst in the world and which has already cost the New York peo ple $23,000,000, and they refused to listen to my proposition." In a confidential tone of voice • the wiley architect continued, "now, yen know how it is yourself, you see I tried every scheme imaginable and indi rectly approached the governor, but he, too, gave us no satisfaction." .The reporter was informed that this vein of argument was pursued by the assail ants of the commission, which, if published, would fill every column in the paper. It is amusing to seek for the consistency of the case and find that it is the unknown quan tity. Here the have acknowledged their own corruption, and produce no evidence for the support' of the charges made against the commission. The fact of matter is, Governor Ord way and the capital commissioners have, in every move, worked to the interests of the territory. No one can doubt that the com missioners were approached with bribes by the wealthy architects and contractors from Chicago, St. Paul, and all the large cities of the country, but their actions prove their innocence of the malic ious charges arid place them in an honorable position before the public. Knowing the cost of the Minnesota state capitol, they accepted its ground plan and appointed its architect as the seper vising architect of the Dakota building to make the desired changes and keep within the funds at their command. Then observe the fair, upright manner in which the contract for construction was awarded. It is given to a Dakota man, who, knowing the com of material on tho Northern Pacific, bids thousands of dollars less than any of his competitors. The money was raised in Bismarck and will be expended in the city and the territory, and charges of corruption come with very bad grace from foreign schemers who come west to prey upon the public funds.

Pittseueg, Aug . 22. — A Punt Sutawney, Jefferson county, Pa., special says: Daring the payment of railroad hands yesterday, a dispute arose about wages,and culminated in a riot, in which a Hungarian named Peter Yedder was killed and two of his fellow workmen, John Shirnitz and John Dalower, were shot, and an Irishman named Tom Kearney unmercifully beaten. No arrests have been made, but Sheriff Anderson and a posse are on hand and will probably make some arrests to-day . No further trouble is anticipated. SPORTIXhT XOTeS, The I'tica Races.

A paragraph in the Caledonia Argus gives some idea of the'systematic .-laught jer of prairie chickens, thus: The son of Austerlitz ha 3 risen on the chickens of the prairies west of us. Among the army moving westward on them there is from this county, Bailey Webster and Clem Huudt, of Caledonia, Bert Snure, Mark Hargreaves and John Kohl, from Hokah, who go with rents and stores, dogs and teams. Woe betide the chick that flutters. Caledonia Journal: E. D. Buell while at work on the court house last week, and while attempting to lift a large rock from the scaffold to the wall, lost his foothold and fell to the floor, a distance of nearly twelve feet. Trie rock went down with him and barely missed his head. He was considerably shaken up. but is now able to be around again. -.;-;> Albert Lee Standard: Yesterday was the start in of the chicken campaign, and team after team from 3 o'clock till 10, loaded with men, dogs, guns and other hereditaments and appurtenances thereun to belonging, wended their way to the prairies in search of the festive prairie chicken. , Iv the absence of the family the other day. a tramp got into the house of H. H. Howe, of Lake Valley, Traverse county, and stola $10 in money.
