Delegate-elect Gifford left Tuesdaj
for a few weeks stay at Washing
ton. Although there is nothing of any
great importance that calls our coming
delegate down to Washington, he feels
that the presence of Dakota's representa
tives at the seat of government will at
least do no harm, and so will spend the
present month among the congressmen
who have so completely ignored the exis
tence of our territory. On the republican
side in congress Dakota has many warm
friends, and Judge GifFord is of the opin
ion that a sontiment can be ultimately
worked up that will extinguish this nar
row-minded jealousy of the democratic
leaders, and after the territory can show
a sworn population of a million or two
possibly may bend low enough to consider
Dakota's claims. There is no hope foi di
vision or admission this session, and the
delegate will put in his time more closely
in assisting Delegate Raymond to secure
favorable action on the reservation bill.
It will be remembered that Judge Gif
ford arrived at Washington last December
about two weeks previous to the arrival
of Delegate Raymond, the latter gentle
man not putting in an appearance until
after the admission bill had passed the
senate. The senators who had favored
the Dakota matter were naturally some
what surprised at this inexcusable recal
citrancy ou the part of the delegate, and
the affair caused a great deal of comment
at the time. Subsequently some of Ray
mond's friends charged that Judge Gif
ford was acting unfriendly toward Ray
mond, and soon after the New York
World came out in a column article reflect
ing upon Dakota's officers and Judge Gif
ford in particular. The absence of Ray
mond's name in this sketch naturally
turned suspicion toward that gentleman as
the instigator of the article, and the press
attempted to manufacture a coolness be
tween the incoming and outgoing dele
gate. Mr. Raymond's attention was call
ed to these charges, and he immediately
denied having had anything to do with
the letter. He said he held tho people
of Dakota in too high esteem to allow of
his attacking their interests in any form.
Judge Gifford, he added, was his friend
and always had been, and by word and
deed on all occasions he proposed to prove
his friendship for Gifford. We are glad
to witness this exhibition of friendship
between the two gentlemen, and hope
they may create a better feeling toward
Dakota from these gentlemen who were BO
horrified at the wickedness of some of our
county-seat differences last fall.

Huetson, council member from this coun
ty, on account of bis action an thecapitol
removal bill. While THE ADVOCATE has
repeatedly questioned the motives of and
fought the Bismarck removal scheme the
past two years, it believes that Mr. Huet
son acted entirely conscientiously, and
only after deliberate consideration of
all matters pertaining to the Pierre re
moval scheme. Mr. Huetson's persona!
explanation at the time, if taken consider
ately, should have been entirely satisfacto
ry to the southern press, and we feel that
the people should wait until the legisla
ture adjourns before dealing too harshly
with one of its members who claimed to
have discovered fraud and iniquity in the
Pierre bill. In an open letter in to-day's
ADVOCATE Mr. Huetson says the removal
bill is liable to prove a "mighty lively
corpse" before the session is over, and
from this we are led to infer that he still
believes in removal provided no corruptive
taint attaches itself to the movement. In
the meantime we await developments.
Woman suffrage seems destined to be
come an important issue in Dakota in the
near future, even the territorial legislature
having under consideration a bill relative
to this issue. Some of the more lenient
newspapers think that if the proposed
census should be provided for it would be
a good plan to arrange for a special elec
tion on this suffrage question to be partic
ipated in aolely by ladies possessing the
same qualifications as are now required of
male electors, and it it should appear that
a majority of all the qualified lady rest
dents in the territory, as shown by the
census, desire the right of suffrage and are
willing to exercise it, then let them have
the right to vote. In the very first place
we want to know whether the women of
Dakota ore desirous of assuming the re
sponsibilities ot what has been' termed
"enlarged" citizenship, and if they really
desire to don this garb, why, bless their
souls, grant them the privilege. The wo
men of Dakota, like the men, are rustleis
from way, way back, and are entitled to
more freedom, more privileges and more
actual prerogatives of equality than are
the women, or men for that matter, of
some of the ignorantly-walled-iti states of
Missouri, Delaware and Dakota—the
hang-outs ot Dakota's defamers, Rankin,
The Yankton Press thinks that anew
legislative combination has been formed,
and a correspondent predicts that it will
control all future important legislation.
It was formed in the council and consists
of all the northern members and five
southern members, namely: Bowdle and
Wagner of the third district Hmedley and
Kennedy of tbe seventh district, and Day
of the sixth. This combination controls
thirteen votes, a majority of just one in
the council, A promise to remove the
United States court from Yankton to
Mitchell secures the support to this com
bination from the third district, while
promised action on the Ordway university
bill seems to have been the magnetic in
fluence that caught the members from the
seventh. If this be true the north will
control everything, unless a majority in the
house should decide to act perversely, in
which case all legislation would be block
ed. It is to be hoped the combination
will not be successful.
By a vote of 29 to 18 the woman suf
frage bill passed the house last Thursday,
and it is believed will pass the council and
become a law. Ole Helvig of this county
and Mark Ward of Brule were among
those voting against the measure.
Thic matter of division of county lines
might as well be looked square in the face,
and the boomers who are attempting to
slice off portions of Lincoln county for the
purpose of catching on to county-seat real
estate be effectually sat down upon. The
Centreville papers arc wild with excite
ment over the prospect of becoming the
shire town of a portion of Lincoln county's
most valuable domain, while the Beres
ford people are smacking their lips in an
ticipation of being the capital of other
portions of Lincoln county that will be
left after the others get through slash
ing. Centreville proposes to cut off a
portion of Turner, annex the townships of
Delaware and Pleasant from Lincoln and
thus organize anew county. Beresford
proposes to slice off a tier of towns from
each of Clay an Union, and annex the
southern tier from Lincoln county. Now
then, if the farmers of Eden, Norway.
Pleasant, Brooklyn and Delaware were
really desirous of severing their connection
with Lincoln county and could secure a
vote of the people of the whole county on
this Centreville annexation scheme, there
would be nothing strikingly unfair or
wrong about the matter. But neither a
majority of the people of the county or
of the townships in question demand this
change, and it turns out to be a land
booming scheme of an Iowa real estate
dealer who percievesthat lie could make a
mint of money at the expense of Lincoln
and the other counties. This gentleman
desirfes to boom Centreville, and very nat
urally agitates this relocation of county
lines purely through personal motives.
The people of Lincoln county do not want
a change, the people of Clay do not want
change, nor do the people of Union. The
members of the legislature from this dis
trict are well aware of the public sentiment
on this question, and we believe will re
spect the almost unanimous will of their
constituents. Let there be no division.
The townsite boomers should be ignored.
The tax commission recommends to the
legislature that the system of taxing rail
roads by gross earnings shall be retained.
By the death of S. S. Merrill, general
manager of the great Chicago, Milwaukee
and St. Paul railway system, the north
west loses the foremost figure in the rail
road world. It can be truthfully stated
that Manager ilerrill was a self-made
man. But few people who have grown
up and spent their lifetime in the devel
opment of the great west know of the loy
al devotions to his work that this gentle
man expended before ascending to the po
sition of a railroad autocrat. Manager
Merill was a manager not only in word
but in deed. Through his almost hercu
lanean efforts the Milwaukee road has be
come the greatest company in the world,
and seems now in the zenith of its power.

The legislature indulged in an excursion

Iowa has a law which admits of taking
a census every five years. Gov. Pierce
has advised the Dakota legislature to
make provisions for a thorough canvas ot
the territory's population this year, the
expense to be paid by the territory. We
believe this the very best move that Da
kota can make to convince congress of the
truthfulness of our claims as to population,
and it is the duty of the legislature to
make the necessary preliminary arrange
ments for taking the ccnsus of Dakota this
year. A constitutional convention would
also thereby be afforded an unanswerable
Cleveland as yet has decided upon no
selections for his cabinet. It is pretty

the demands of the western democracy.
The tormality of counting the electoral
vote occupied the attention of the senate
Tuesday, when the election of Cleve
Senator Sabin has introduced a joint
resolution to enable all bona fide settlers
within the limits of the resurvey of the
late Sioux Indian reservation in Dakota
to make final proof and pay for their
claims without regard to the fact of tbe
previous enjoyment of pre-emption right
on other lands outside the reservation.
The resolution was made necessary by the
fact that the resurvey was different from
the first or unofficial survey.
A special session of the suprfeine court
will be commenced at Bismarck this week.
In the territorial legislature the railway
committee reported a substitute for the
various railway bills already introduced,
and the substitute was made a special or

territory, inquire into the management
and operation of roads notify companies

BISMARCK, Feb. 3, 1885.
EDITOR OF ADVOCATE:—The paper
comes to hand regularly, also the News,
and I read them both with much satisfac
tion as they remind me constantly that
there is no place like home. I feel grate
ful to you to think that you are not in
clined to render judgment until after the
court has adjourned, although you know
me well enough to know that I don't care
a straw for the condemnation or approval
of any newspaper when I know I am right,
and in regard to my "traitorous conduct"
as cited by some parties, that is too ridic
ulous to mention in this connection and
in regard to my position, why I think
subsequent events will be better evidence
than any other that can be produced.
We are in good running order and get
ting through with considerable work in
both houses, especialy since the capitol
incubus has been removed and men can
act and breath freely and not have letters
and telegrams shot at them every hour in
the day, representing both sides of the
question. But if any of your readers who
sympathize with the capital commission
have an idea that the capitol bill is a
corpse I can assure you that it will prob
ably be as lively a corpse as you ever
heard of, for South Dakota is as solid to
day as it ever tfas, as you will notice from
time to time when important measures are
to be tested.
The great strife for the next two weeks
will be for appropriations, and the pres
sure that is brought to bear on that com
mittee is pretty severe, especially to a man
in the position I am—desirious of econo
my. You know my position on that is,
"Not a dollar jaore than is necessary,"
and I must say that while Pettigrew and
I don't waive any rights to pitch into one
another if the occasion demands, still I
must say as chairman of that committee
his head is pretty level and he is doing
good work. To give you an idea of the
way appropriations are
asked for I will cite
North Dakota university, $216,
662 university ot Dakota, $59,000 agri
cultural college at Brookings, $64,500
normal school at Madison, $32,000 peni
tentiary at Bismarck, $77,000, at Sioux
Falls, $60,000 deaf mute school at Sioux
Falls, $35,000 Jamestown asylum, $161,
000 hospital for insane atYankton, $15,
0.000 normal at Spearfish, $5,000.
New institutions as follows: Reform
school at Mil bank, $20,000 central uni
versity at Ordway, $57,000 agricultural
college, Fargo, $60,000 normal at Spring
field, $11,000 normal at Minto, $10,000
reform school at Plankinton, $20,000.
There you see is over a million dollars
besides the running expenses of the terri
torial government. Of course every man
gets terribly disappointed that does not
get. his appropriation. They have an idea
it seems to me that they must every one
go home with a reform school or some
thing of that kind to their constituents.
Now unless the appropriations ave cut
down to living and reasonable figures,
there will be some lively vetoing by the
Governor, in my humble opinion.
A. C. HUETSON.
A Very Unpoetlcal Explanation.
Taking all the facts into consideration,
it appears clear to Mr. H. C. Sorby that
all the bright and beautiful tints'of
leaves in Autumn are merely the earlier
stages of decomposition, and are due to
the more or less considerable triumph of
chemical forces over the weakened or
destroyed vitality of the living plant.
He adds that one can but feel that this
is a very uapoetical way in which to re
gard the magnificent tints of a fine
autumnal landscape, but it is not less
true than that the colored clouds of
evening mark the departing day.
Whereas, default has been made in the payment
of the money secured by a mortgage dated the fif
teenth day of November, A. D. 1883, executed by
Issao Seloover and Louisa Seloover, his wife, of tho
county of Bnne Vista and state of Iowa, mortga
gors, to Freeman M. Rowley of Beloit, in tbe state
of Iowa, mortgagee, which mortgage was duly filed
for record in the office of the register of deeds of
Lincoln county, territory of Dakota, on the 38th
day of November. A 1. 1882. at four o'clock p. M„
and duly recorded in Book "K" of mortgages on
And, whereas, the said mortgage was by the said
Freeman M. Bowley, mortgagee, duly assigned to
F, A. Osle on the fourth day of April. A. D. 1889,
together with the Indebtedness secured thereby as
evidenced by four promissory notes of even date
with said mortgage for the principal sum of Three
Hundred and Seventy-five Dollars each, which
said assignment was duly filed for record hi the of
fice of tbe register of deeds of Lincoln county, Da
kota territory, on the 2nd day of February, A. D.
1885, and dnly recorded in Book 'Q" of mortgages,
on page 214.
And, whereas, it was in said mortgage expressly
rreed that in case of default made in the payment
of the sum of money secured by said mortgage or
of any part thereof at the time or times specified
for the payment thereof, then the whole principal
and interest of said indebtedness shall at the op
tion of the holder thereof, immediatly become due
and payable, and it shall be lawful In such case for
the sud party of the seoond part, his heirs execu
tors, administrators or assigns to grant, bargain,
sell, release and convey said premises with the ap
purtenances thereunto belonging at pubUc auction

vided by law.
And, whereas, the said parties of the first part
have failed to pay the principal sum of Three Hun
dred and Seventy-five Dollars which became due
and payable on the lfith day ot November, or any
part thereof, and the same remains due and un
paid, and has further failed and neglected to pay
the interest on the whole of said Indebtedness,
which become due and payable November IB, 1884,
which interest is now duo and unpaid, and the un
dersigned has elected and hereby elects that the
whole principal sum transferred to him as afore
said as evidenoed by said fonr promissory notes for
the principal sum of Three Hundred and Seveuty
five Dollars each, shall become duo and payable
And, whereas, default has been made in the pay
ment of the indebtedness aforesaid due and payable
upon and secured by said mortgage, and that there
is now due on said indebtedness at the date of this
together with tbe sum of |50 attornay fees, stip
ulated and agreed hi said mortgage to be paid as at
torneys fee* in case of the foreclosure or comrence
meat of the foreclosure of-said mortgage.
And, whereas, no suit, proceedings or action at
law or otherwise has been Instituted to recover the
said mortgage debt or any part thereof.
Now, therefore, notice ia hereby given that pursu
ant to the statute in such cases made and provided
and pursuant to the power of sale oontained in said
mortgage and recorded therewith as aforesaid, tbe
said mortgage will be foreclosed by a sale of the
premises therein doscribed to satisfy the amount
