A Fast One.
Turf Editor of the Globe:
Noethfield, Feb. 2.—lt was around the
stove in a country inn in a certain part of
this state not long &inoe, with the mercury
down to 30 degrees below zero, that as
83edy and ignorant a lot of men sat one
would scarce, meet with in the Hackle
berry settlement of south lowa, or the
back woods of west Missouri. The bone
of contention seemed to be "who had the
fastest horse." One of the men, a tall,
slim "thug" with hair evidently left to
grow till the Demoorats elected another
president, who had said nothing for more
than hnlf an hour, broke the silence,
thus: "Gentlemen, I've got a hos'
't kin <30i,0p any of yens that'll trot Wis
miloin2:10; and don't yer fergit it." His
assertion reminded me of the statement
not loui? since made by a writer in the
Spirit of the Timeo aiout a certain horse
that could scoop a nation for money, (but
whioh afterward was taken back,) that it
was around the ftove in a grocery store
that that horse could do each wonderful
trotting. Oh, yes; the woods are chuck
full of horpes that will trot a mile in 2.10
—around the stove in grocery etoreß.
Now, as v bald spot ia the face to all such
claiiLs, I wish to recall attention to
Mr. John Archer, who is 60
well known throughout the
GiiOBE, as one of the foremost horsemen
in this p»irt of th 3 stale or in fact tho
•whole &tato, as now having the pride of
the Siafe, and in fact, for age, of the
United States, on the turf.
Thir mare—for such she i3—is very
handsome, as to color (block) .formed per
fectly tor a trotter, five years old, with a
le^ord of 2:32, last jear, but has several
times since made her mile in 2:30. Mr.
Archer will go east in the spring to put
her in training and will now pnt her
against anything of the kind in tho United
States for :SI,OOO- What she will do in
incog.
Oh Northfield's "Lucy Judd"—
For that is her name—
How glib yoa lift your feet,
Your competitor to beat,
When your master holds the rein.
Ho t.v vvoll you know,
If you are beat
A id tfet loft on the second
And third heat,
Sfimr master will lose
In utter dispair,
B'> you gt.t down and "gat there."
Mr. Archtr is ail animation over the
prospects of this mare, and says, "she is
sure to e&rn a record equal to the best—
nothing short of 2:10. E. B. F.
Jay Eye Sec and Michlxiil.
It is about as much as a man's life ia
-worth to own a fast horse. Generally
speaking all sort* of challenges are shot at
him by the owners of horses that have no
records and in many cases have not speed
enough to get one. The owners of theso
animals think to make a reputation for
their horses by challenging the fast ones,
in the same way that Mr. John L. Sulli
van, tbo champion four-round-knock-out
man, i? challenged oontiually by men who
cannot stand before him for four seconds.
The challenging business, that i 3 putting
forth and withdrawing of challenges still
continue in one form or another. Mr. J.
I. Cnae, of Racine, Wis., who owns a really
fast a::d valuable animal in Jay-Eye-See,
made a little mistake a few weeks ago by
being connected with a challenge. He
evident'}- now sees hia mistake and se6ks
to escape Ac responsibility. In the last
nunibor of Duntou's Spirjtof the Turf a
writer who signs himself "Mambrino," as
sumes the responsibility of the challenge
and seeks to lelieve Mr. Case, and the lat
ter gentleman also publishes in the samo
paper r. communication, in whioh he dis-
claims ell intention of making a pnbliu
challenge. The two statements are as fol
lows:
Editor Dunton's Spirit of the Turf:
In my article which appeared ia your
issue of the sth, I introduced a remark
made by Mr. j. I. Case in conversation
with mi, which I notice many of the jour
nals h£ve construed into a formal ohal
lenge. I desire to 6ay in justice to M..
Case, that the remark was not intended
for pnbiioation as a formal ohallcEgo.
Mr. Case intends to campaign a strong
stable in 1884 and compete for turf honors
but he has decided objections to assuming
the position of a challenging party; how
ever, should a challegge be directed to his
home he does not Bay that he
will not accept the same, and name a
horee from his stable. Mameeino.
It seems the impression has gone out
that I have made a public and open chal
lenge to trot Jay Eye See against any
horse, mare or gelding for $10,000. It all
grew out of a friendly conversation I had
with Mr. McKinaoy in regard to my horses
and my faith in Jay Eye See to beat any
and all trotters next season. Ido not wish
to be or seem aggressive, and would not
make, knowingly, a public challenge, such
as lam now credited by the public and
sporting journals as making. I did not In
tend my interview with my friend LlcKin
ney to go into print as a fchallenjj©. Iv horße
parlance.we were merely trottikg our horses
around the stove, and may have marked
them (as 13 usual in such cases) rather fast.
I woul<3 like to have the impression thst I
have made a piblia challenge personally
corrected. Will you please oorrect such
impression in your own pleasant way, and
much oblige. Yours truly, J. I. Casb.
OH THE CONTEAET,
Having said what we did in regard io
the matter last week, it is proper to give
Mr. Case's explanation &s we do above.
Mr. Campbell, who is managing Richbsll,
the fast pacer seems to hava no u'cruples
about sending out challenges, nnd says he
is ready with his horse, and if Mr. Case
will pive him a chance be will meet him,
as will be seen by the following item from
the Turf, Field and Farm:
"Mr. J. S. Campbell, now at St. Charles
hotel, New Orleans, La., sends us the /ol
io w;eg, whioh is worthy the attention «f
the man from Raoine: 'I see Mr. Cesa
challenges any trotter in the world ioi
$10,000. Now, if he will include pacers,
1 v>ili give him a TEn with Eichball, if we
can agree on trackp, At present he is
do:n£ well, nnd should be able to give Jay
EjeSeoarfice vrartb looking at, as the
owner of Kiohball will bet even money he
can beat the sen of Dictator.' "
JAY EYE-SEE.
The Milwaukee Sentinel of the 28th
January has the following in regard to this
well known gelding: "On Thursday, the
famous little trotter, Jay-Eye-See was
hitched to the pole with Ellen Spragut,
end driven about Racine for exercise, by
Edwin Bithfcr. It is the first time the ani
mal has been in harness since last fall.
No person, to look at the horse as he was
being driven along on that day, would
imagine that he web th 9 fastest in the
world. He is a very small and an inferior,
looking animal, at a distance, but upon
close inspection the fine points can be
seen at a glance. Bither says the wonder
is in perfect health and condition. Next
season, if everything is right, he will drive
Jay-Eye-See one mile in less than 2:10.
One gentleman who steed on the street
and observed Bither drive by with the
team wanted to know "what little plug
that was on the left hand side." He was
almost paralyzed when informed that ha
could not purchase that plug for $100,000,
and that it wa* Jay-Eye-Sse."
Even the ohildren in Racine, the home of
" the wonder," are taught by their parents
to sound the praises of Jay Eye See. A
representative of the Globe, while being
shown around Racine reoently by Mr. W.
F. Hooker, the Racine end of the paper
quoted above, was proudly introduced by
that gentleman to his little two year old
son, end the tiny representative of the
" coming man " waa coaxed to Bay for tke
visitor's edification: "Jay Eye See trots in
two, ten and three-quarters," and it wss
said as proudly as if the babe " kenned "
what it all meant.
Ihe Dam of Jay Eye See Dead.
[Turf, Field and Farm.]
The famous broou mare, Midnight, dam
of Jay Eye See and Noontide, died at Palo
Alto, January 19, aged nineteen. In the
autumn of 1882 she was sold by Mr.
David Bonner to ex-Governor Leland
Stanford, who shipped her by express to
California. On the 13th of February, 1888,
■he was bred to Electioneer, aire of Hinda
Rose, Wildflower and Bonita, and she be
came fertile for the last time. She acted
as if in good health and spirits up to the
evening of January 18. During the night
she labored hard at foaling, but was safely
delivered of a fine brown colt.
The next morning she waa
quite weak. The trouble seemed to be
with the afterbirth, whioh did not come
away. About twD o'clock in the afternoon
of Saturday, the 17th, her labor pains were
bo severe as to throw her into convulsions.
The colt was taken from her and put with
Noraia, who had foaled a colt very much
like Midnight'B the previous morning.
Despite every effort to save her, Midnight
died at four o'clock in tho afternoon. The
colt is doing well with his foster mother,
who, by the way is the dam of Mr. Bon
ner's celebrated road mare Lucy Cuyler;
and witii the sanction of Gov. Stnnford,who
is now ifl Europe, he will be oalled Electri
city^ name suggested by Dr. Geo. H. Bailey
of Portland, Maine. Midnight was bred at
Wocdburn, and in color she was a gray,
like her sister in blood, Misi Russell, the
dam of Maud S. She was got by Alex
ander's Pilot, Jr., out of Twilight, thorough
bred daughter of Lexington, and she out
of Daylight, by imp. Glenooe. She web
unappreciated until her daughter Noon
tide, by Harold, made a record of 2:2oj^.
The performances last year of her eon by
Dictator, Jay Eye See, five-year-old
record 2:10%, placed her in the very fore
most rasks of the brood mares of the
world, and her death will be widely re
gretted. Gov. Stanford was fortunate in
getting a stallion oolt out of her by the
prepotent Electioneer.
Miscellaneous,
The spring meeting of the National
Jockey olub at Washington will be held
May 13,14,15 and 16, and the stakes open
to be run at it will close March 1. Two
ore for two-year-olds; two for ihree-year
old#, and four ura for all ages.
The ohestnut colt Ascalon, foaled 1881,
by Springbok, dam Asteroid, out of Kate
Hays, by imp. Albion, the property of Hon.
T. J. Megibben, died January 23 at the
Edgewater Stud, Ky. Ascalon was a
promising colt and well engaged.
Col. E. F. Clay, Runnymede Stud, Ky.,
has recently purohaeed of Col. W. H.
JohE»o~. Sanndersville, Tenn.j agent of
Mr. -John B. Peyton, the chestnut mare
foaled 1876, by Pat Malloy, dam Panama,
by Meteor, c ut of Alboni, by imp. Albion.
The bay brood mare Blondin, foaled
1861, by Commodore, dam Seabird, out of
Kate King, by imported Priam, the prop
erty of Gen. W. G. Harding, Belle Meade
stud, Term., died at Belle Meade Jan. 22.
Blocdii was she dam of Vicksburg, Baton
Rouge, Barometer and other good horses.
Tha Maryland Jockey club has five
Btakes open to close March 1. They are
the Rincocas Handicap, the Vernal Swtep
6takes, the Pentona Handicap, the Balti
more Cup and ths Clabaugh Memorial
Stakes. The spring meeting will take

Mr. L. B. Fields, Danville, Ky., has re
cently purohaeed the bay mare Fleta,foaled
1874, by imp. Hurrah, dam Minnie Boston
by imp. Bonnie Scotland, out of Kate Bos
ton, by Lexington, and will breed her the
coming spring to Harry O'Fallon. Fleta
is a well bred mare and bred to Harry
O'Fallon ought to produce race horses.
On the day that our paper went to press
last week the well known trainer and
driver, David R. Hosmer, died in this city.
Hq had bnt recently arrived here from
Cleveland to seek a purchaser for the
stallion Abc^llah Boy, record 2:24^.
While here he was attacked with pneu
monia, and succumbed after a short ill
nesß. His remains were forwarded to
Cleveland for interment.
The suit of John W. Stokes against the
Mammoth Park association for $10,000
for ejection from its grounds in 1882, wae
concluded in Freehold, N. J., on Friday,
Jan. 25, and was decided in favor of the
defendant. Mr. Stokes was proprietor of
the Brigham Hotel at Long Branch, and
used on the track unbecoming language in
regard to the judges'placing of tho horses.
He was taken off the track by an officer,
and brought the suit above stated.
The old time trainer, George P. Carpen
ter, died st Hartford on January 14, from
injuries received three months previously
from a kick by a horse. He wa* a native
of Rhode Island, and his proper name was
Patrick Cochrane, but he assumed the
name o£ Carpeater from Mr. A. Carpen
ter, of Hartford, by whom he was brought
»p. He droro Thomas Jefferson in the
greet stallion race at Boston, whioh he
won.
In Juiy, 1831, James H. Sterling wrote
to the American Turf Register, describing
a mule vhioh had lost its tongue, ihe valu
able organ being cut off near the root by
the bit. and which was alive and in good
health teu years after the accident. The
trotting mare Cozette, record 2.19, had her
toDgne snapped off some two years ago,
and she is now in breeding ranks on the
farm of Mr. Z E. Simmons, in Kentucky.
She ttats her food without much trouble
szid keeps in good condition. The tongue,

organs.
Prof. O'Reilly, of Rondout, K. V., writes
of horse-shoeing: '"At some seasons of
the year it will be necessary to have ctnlks
upon the shoes, bnt ordinarily the foot
should be allowed to come as near the
gronud as possible. What we mean by
the flat shoa ia one flat on its superior eur
faee, that com6s in direot contact with the
hoof, the under surface being practically
concave, so as to assist the horse in grasp
ing the ground to prevent slipping, and to
fcftsictin progrees'Lg. The shoe should be
as big as ihe foot, so as not to require asy
cutting down of ih6 hoof to make it fit the
shoe, and the heels of the shoe should not
be permitted to project backward beyond
tho heel of the hoof more than abor.t one
half an inch. The outward m&rgin of ihe
shoe should just correspond with the shape
of tne foot, except at the heel, whoie the
shoe should be a little wider from quarter
to heel, especially on the outaide."
The Chestnut stallion Ferncliff, foaled
1877, by imp. Leamington, dam Ntllie
RHDsom, by Jack Malone, out of Vesper
Light, by Childe Harold, her dam Bade
Light, by imp. Glencoe, the property of
Capt. Wm. Cottrill, Mobile, Ala., died on
Sunday night, Jan. 19, at the Magnolia
Stud, Ky. Fernoliff was a good racehorse
and was bred in a manner to make him a
valuable sire. Capt. Cottrill has the past
few years been heavily handioapped with
mi&fortcne, having lost imported Buokden
when in his prime as one of the most fam
ous stallions of the country.
Sevsnty-four horses are in ihe c&tologue
of btook to be sold at public auction by
W. H. Wilsou, at the Paris (Ky.) fair
grounds on Wednesday, Feb. 13, to the
highest bidder, without reservation. They
are consigned by such breeders as Hon. C.
W. Poor, Kellar Thomas snd T. W. An
derson (to clone partaenhip), Joshua Bar
ton, Capt. M. M. Clay, (through hia exe
cutrix), J. T. McMillan, W. S. Buokner,
etc. The stock comprises young things,
geldings, blood mares and stallions, and
there is not a strain of fashionable trot
ting blood that ij not represented.
The New Orleans Picayun6 of Jan. 21
thus gossips about some of the flyers of
the recent Texts circuit: Richball, the
famous paoer, has be*n tarntd oat at
Gainesville. Like Jay Eye Se«, the trot
ting kin#, the greatest of pacers is a email
horse, and whon turned out a month ago
he oiily weighed 770 pounds. He has
gained sixty-five pounds of flesh eince
then, and is rapidly increasing his weight.
Mr. J. S. Campbell, his capable handler,
Jeavfcß for Texas, and will start jogging
the horse r/ooEt Wednesday, co as to have
him in trim lor the first race this season,
which will probably be the free for all
pacers at Gainesville, Texas, on April 3.
Height of pome of the noted race horses
and trotters: Longfellow sta.idß 17 hands,
Tom Bowling a little over 1G; Foxhall,
George Kinney, Iroquois, Misa Woodford,
Lecoiupte and Sansation, each 1G hands;
Eole and Ten Broock 16.2, and Tom Oohil
trte 1G.23^ haeds; Hindoo is 15%; Miss
Foote, Tritle and Picayune were under 15

Fashion and American Eclipse vr,."f> 15.1,
and Bostor, Lexington and Luke iJ'aok
burn 6tood between 15.2)^ and 15 3. On
the trotting turf, Jay-Eye-Soe 2:10%, and
Majolica 2:17, are 15 hands each; Maud S.
2:1034, and St. Julien 2:11J4', are 15.3
each, and Rar*s, Edwin Forrest and Graf
ton 1G hands.
Turf, Field and Farm: In autum last we
called attention to the fact that two cf the
famous brood mares at Woodburu, Belle
and Woodbine, had entered the barren
stage. At that time each was able to take
care of herself, but the severe wiiiter
weather told upon both, and it was deemed
a kindness to destroy them. Visitors at
Woodbnrn will never again see them
standing in the 6hade of noble trees, look
ing with dreamy eyes out upon the land
scape. Their work is done, and the grass
that they pressed beneath their feet will
next spring grow above them. Will the
blue eky also be above the animating part
—the heart essenoe of their beings? Or
was there nothing in them like unto the
deathless flame? Alas! who can tell?
O'Leary and Sheridan, the well known
young jockeys, have been engaged by
Mejor Hubbard to ride ligtjt weights for
the Erdenheim stable the coming season.
O'Leary is one of Wyndbam Walden'a
most apt pupils, having been in that
school at Ishp, from whence Costello and
Ural graduated. Last season he rode wiih
considerable success for Mr. Kelso's tri
color, and won a good percentage of tho
races in which he rode. Sheridan ia one
of James Lee's pupils, and made his mark
m Mr. Charles Reed's "cherry and blue,"
his record for 1882 standing 1 out of 43,
while last year he won 4 out of 61 mounts.
He follows Lee's regime at Erdenheim, in
the natural course of events. With I itz
patriok to do the heavy weights, and
O'Leary and Sheridan at tha light weights,
Ihe "blue and gold stripes" will not want
for riding talent.
The brown trotting stallion Menelans
died at Crown Point, Ind., on Jan. 19,
agea seventeen years. He was by Rys
dyk's Hambletonian, dam Jessie Bull, by
Long Island Black Hawk; second dam by
Jackson's Young Duroo; third dam by
Coffin's Messenger. He was bred by J.
Bull, Orange county, N. V., who sold him
to Charles Backman, who sold him in 1872
to E. S. & J. Wadsworth, Chicago. Mr.
Backm ;n repuroha ? ed him in 1875, and he
stood from 1875 to 1879 in Michigan. In
1869 he was p^chased by Addison
Doughty, Chicago, whese property he died.
He sired many good animals, the most
prominent being the black mare Cleora,
that in her first eeaeon on the turf, and
when six years old, trotted at Chicago, in
1882, in 2:2lJ^, 2:21 Jf and 2:18%, win
ning ths race in straight heats. Last eea
son, hitched doubla with Independence, she
trotted several heats below 2:20. Menelaus

A Robe Recovered.
A $35 buffalo robe was purloined from
the cutter of Henry Reichow in front of
Mike Cummingß' saloon on Thursday eve
ning, for the recovery of which the owner
offered $5 reward. From a casual remark
dropped by a tramp at the city hall yes
teiclay Capt. Brissette suspected him of
having to do with this theft, and so flatly
confronted him that he acknowledged that
he knew where the robe was, and impli
cated another tramp, and both were ar
rested. The officer then proceeded to
the saloon of Stiver & Bro., corner of
Ramsey and Fort streets,a«d secured the
property, where it had been put up in
pledge for drinks. It seems that Mike
Welch and John Riley, the two tramps ar
rested, and who stole the robe, secreted
the property together, after whioh one of
them stole back to the cache and taking it
put it up at the saloon in question to sat
isfy his ragiDg thirst. This insincerity on
his part caused the other tramp to
grumble aloud and this gave the theft
away to the officer as above stated. In
connection with this subject it may be
stated that the reception of stolen goods
for drinks by some of the saloon keepers
of the city, and their neglect to notify the
tuthorities that Buoh goods are in their
poasc-ssion, is getting so frequent that
measures are to be taken to break the li
censes of such offenders.

It has always been my cbservaton that
there was nothing small about Republican

P3rty," and in small thing 3 usually they
are strictly honest. Once in awhi!e some

utation and destroys his case in the party
When they can get their clamps onto a
few town6hipß of pine lands or
collar onto some fat subsidy
or other there is never any
going back on their record. They all do
It. A nice little echeme put np by the
laud officers at Worthington, Minnesota,
to steal twenty-five improved farms along
the line of the Southern Minnesota R. R.
has been unearthed and it is a matter
which should be given to the world at
once. It has been saidtas a comparative
test of honesty thxt" & man would cot
steal anything which he waa unable to
carry away." This does not have any ref
erence to these two worthies end their
mutual friends.
To enter at once into the details of this
matter, an act of congress was passed and
was approved July 4th, 1883, conveying to
the Southern Minnesota Exttasion com
pany a certain quantity of land* along ita
proposed line within the asu&l railroad
limits. At the time of the passage of the
act. certain lands within such railroad
limits had been filed upon bat afterwards
abssdoned, remaining, however, at that
time unoancellod. The abandoned claims
the company claimed under their grant,
and proceaded during 1878 and subsequent
years to sell to settlors, subject to the de
cision of the interior department in their
favor.
Tie purchasers in most if not in all in
stances entered into pos*esoioa of their
lands and improved them to a greater or
less extant. On March 10, 1883, Commis
sioner McFarland decided that all lands
which had boen filed upon at the time of the
passage of the grant and remained at that
time uncancelled, were not subjeot to its
provisions and coold Boi be olaiiE'- 1 by
the company allowing, however, the t-^nt
of appeal from his derision to the S. M.
Ex. Co., "or any cconpast or settler upon
ench lands." Now right here is were these
two delectable worthies got
in their fine lees work.
Immediately upon|reeeipi of this decision
thirty entries were filed, some of which
were received by the land officers six
months or mora prior to tha decision, and
twenty-five of which were upon improved
farms.
Thiß is only the beginning of the busi
nesv, however, for when the aptual settlers
learned of the decision and came to file
upon their farms and were refused upon
the ground of a prior entry, they found
that twenty-three of tho entries were un
der the timber culture act, one quarter in
a section, and were made by parties living
at or near Windom or Albert Lea, the
home of the receiver and register of the
land ofnoe.
More. It was discovered thai they were
nade in tbo main by bankers and their
clerks, merchants, county clerks of court,
liverymen, lawyers and business men of
these two cities, who never expected to re
side upon the so lands for one moment and
who went into the business purely and
solely upon a speculative basis.
More yet. The register of the Worth
ington land office, who waa so gloriously
scooped for state treasurer a number of
years a«o, by an independent candidate,
when C. K. Davis was elected gov
ernor, and who that eloquent
orator plead so grandly for, refused to
allow aotual settlers to file upon their
oUtbib pending the derision of the com
missioner, on the ground that the iands
were not yet declared exempt from the
provicions of the grant, while all the
while he had on filo the applications of his
friends.
So you see the actual E6ltlsr, though ho
m«y have improved and repeatt dly crop
ped every arable aore of his farm, has no
rights whioh these fellcwa are bound to re
spect. There is still another feature about
this business whioh will bear investigation.
Comm-PBioner McFarland, whose wonder
ful adaptability to circumstances (i. c. the
pressure and influence brought to bear
upon him) as demonstrated in his double
back-somersault rniings in certain cases
of alleged pine land pre-emption fraudß,
suddenly executes another of his favorite
acrobct feats, and, having ruled March 10,
1883, that "acutual oeonpants and settlers
upon tho lands have the right of appeal,"
on Nov. 23, 1883, rules that the 8. M. Ex.
Co. alone has the right uf appeal, and re
jects the appeal of the settler.
The question now ie, "Who is thefriend at
court who has exoerci#ed such a wonderful
influence upon McFarland's mind and ten
der conscience, end if the settler inter
ested can't name him the first time every
body had better give it up.
Such in britf is the outline of this de
lectable soheme as developed down to dhte,
and it is now in order for those two very
fine gentlemen end their relatives and bus
iness friends at Albert Lea and
Windom to rise and explain why
th6y are attempting to steal im
proved farms from actual settlers.
This Is only a begitßing of the lurnnig
inside out of the rotten transaction of cer
tain parties who fancy they are supreme
aad that there is no recourse. Who deter
mine in their own mind that they will ride
rough shod over tho rights of the settler
because might makes right. There are
several chapters mere to be written upon
this snbject, and tha only recourse left for
the men who are contending for their
homes eeems to be through ventilation of
this iniquitous baseness throngh the col
umns of the Globb. Yes, thare is one
remedy a little further off and that is to
"Turn the rtscals out."

THE DAKOTA REPUBLICAN COX
VENTION.
The Jamestown Alert, whioh is the home
organ of Chairman Wells, of tho Republi
can central committee, mildly dissents
from a point or two in a late reference to
the tima and place proposed for the con
vention to apooint deletratM to the Chi
cago convention. Its only material point
is in thii:
It is the gecf ral understanding that the con
vention is required to be held not later than the
first week in March, it so having been ordered
by a higher political authority, and that being
the case the latter part of February could
hardly be characterized a3 a "remarkably curly
date," or in the interest of Logan or any other
particular candidate. Bonator Logan has many
warm friends in this territory, and that friend
ship would n.t bo changed by delay in the
matter of holding the convention t* appoint the
delegates.
It ia a curious statement that the time of
holding the convention haa been ordered
by a higher political authority than the
territorial committee. There is nothing
in the requirements of the national con
vention to compel tha appointment of del
egates three months in advance in Dakata.
It is in the exclusive control of t«e local com
mittee to call the territorial convention in
February or May or any other time. The
higher authority then must be the wishes
of some political leader iv the
interest of soma candidate. It woald be a
very natural inference that Senator Sabin
is that unknown quantity that wields an
influence like auty law
to Mr. Wells, although
of cjar=9, he doea not allow himself to be
classed as working for any special candi
date. The Alert is not quite oandid in its
reference to tha Logan feeling. The point
mado was that this convention was to be
held remarkably early ac a starter to a Lo
gan boom. Among Logan's champions are
many of those who have made Dakota's
micerial boom heard all over thia and
eovora.! other countries. Got thorn well on
tho boards and thoy will stir up racket
enough with their two Logan votes to make
the country think n regular ground bwell
or Dukata blizzard ib coming. The dia
tingniished Indian chief who h»pes to be
president, could easily anticipate this. He
has been to Dakota—especially his still
more discerning and ambitious lady.
There ar« many collateral circumstances
that contribute to the impression that
the early call in iv tha interest
of Logan. In this connection a para
graph from Home Washington letter in re
gard to a matter referred to recently in
this column will come in well :
Apropos to Logan, I wan told tho other day
that at the time he was running for senatorial
honors against Dick Ogleeby that a friend in the
caucus, it was a seoret one, slipped a scrap of
paper under the door to a friend upon tho out
side, announcing the election of John. The
friend carried the Rood news to Mrs. Logan,who
at once announced her determination of culling
upon the Oglesbys. On the way there tho dis
comfited candidate was met. "Wo were just
going t» call upon yon," said the friend. "I'm
well," said Dick, "1 presnme John has scoopod
me V" "Yes," aid the friend, "he is elected."
"I noTor doubted it," Raid Dick; "aay man who
would join the Methodist Charon by telpgraph
and send his photograph to be baptized can bo
elected senator or unythiuß else." It is to be
Been whether the mantle of prophecy waa upon
tho shoulders of the cx -senator.

A Dakota bred Berkshire hog on the

n. . Yemeni than the dioramic affair that
stranded JProf. Crabbe at Fargo.
Col. Morton, tha famous real estate
boomer, who has through the literature of
his firm and hie personal efforts, brought
a vast number of settlers to north Dakota,
if about to vi; it the east with his family
and study the outlook of the spring cam
paign, which he thinks will be the moat
remarkable ia the history of Dakota.
It is stated those banished families
from Russia are on their way to settle
near MitcheU, Davison county, and are but
the advance guard of the number to come.
There is a large Radian colony therj al
ready, End it ifl faid that the only objeo
tion that they iiia<s io Dakota is that the
winters are too warm. They ware raised
ia a cold climate.
There is a largo fraction of truth in this
from the Hope Pioneer: Pettigraw says
the people of Dakota do not care a conti
nental whether the capital of Dakota is
Bismarck or Yankton, It would appear
josfc bo. The people at large do not care
where the capital of the territory it situat
ed; fair market prices for their products
is of more vital importance to them, and
they pay bat little attention to the doings
of the political wire pulling schemers.
There is a graat deal of gratification felt
in north Dakota a* the information recent
ly receivad from parties who have called
upon President Harris and General Man
ager Oakes, in Nsw York, to tha effect that
these g««tlemeE intend to inquire closely
into the needs and interests of the people
along the line of the Northern Ptoific, amd
make tariff rates that will be entirely satis
factory to the country throagh which it
passes, and aid is the development of the
agricultural resources with emigrant rates
that will Hot deter settlers.

Trying to b» Fret of Debt.
Cincinnati, Feb. 3.— At a brief and in
formal meeting of tho bond and stock
holders of the Kentucky Central Railroad
company hold here yesterday, a plan long
contemplated for clearing the read of
debt was talked over. Those present uuan
ixiondv scented to the proposition for
the stock holders to pny an ass )33nibnt of
ten per cent, on the par value of their
stock, and the bondholders to «xchan{fe
their present bonds for others of a like
face value, at four per cant, for two yean*.
It is believed this plan would not only free
the road from debt, but complete its ex
