Address: Kil. *.om..berrr,edito,^^^ Notes aid Nam Wilson Shannon, ex-Governor of Kan sas, is dead. Montgomery Blair wants to be Senator from Maryland. Fashion journals report that broad gauge garters of the style in the time of James i, are coming into vogue. A philosopher says he can't find out where the air leaves off and the earth be gins. Let him fall backward from a fence and he'll soon find out. A small child being asked by a Sunday school teacher, "What did the Israeli tes do after they had crossed the Red Sea answered, "I don't know, ma'am, but I guess they dried themselves.'' Some persons are great at one thing and some at another. Many a woman who can write page after page of lovely poetry can't catch hold of a squalling babe without nearly yanking its arms off. A public reader says that when he be gins to declaim the stirring piece com mencing "Strike the lyre!" tKe effect of the first sentence on seme of his hearers can only be compared to what follows the cry of low bridge on a canal boat. New York Sun: The kind of verses that are read in Kentuckey school exhi bition 'Go, my sen, and shut the shutter'— This I heard a mother utter. 'Shutter's shut,' the boy did matter, 'I can't shut it any shutter.'" All of the government works which have been in progress on the lines of the lower Fox river will be completed this month. The river is now in first-class condition, and w.ll from this time for ward accommodate all the wants of navi gation. "Soak" is the only Japanese equivalent «f "baptize," and the Japanese Bible con sequently reads, according to a religious paper, the Alliance: "In those days came John, the soaker, preaching the soaking of repentance. Repent and be soaked, every one of you." Gen. J. W. Sprague, late general su perintendant and land commissioner of the PaciMc division, Northern Pacific railroad, is now general superintendant of the Oregon steam navigation company, which owns a fleet of thirty vessels em ployed in the coasting service on the Pa cific coast. There is an old California epitaph that has excited a good deal of interest, both with the character it describes and the question it asks. The epitaph is as fol lows: "Here lies old Thirty-five per cent! The more he had the more he lent The more he got the more be craved The more he made the more he shaved— Good God! can such a son I bs saved?" An unpublished letter from Sitting Bull to Wendell Phillips is in the hands of Lord Dufferin on the way. S. B. says, among other things,: "Me glad hear from you. Sitting Bull glad hear from Man-not-afraid-of-His-Blab. Me see copy of Sun. Sun want no more damsoljer. Sun say Big Father Hayes no give Injun no more fire water—gun, pistol, powder, shoot-thing no more. JBig father be fraud. Dam Hayes. Me no like Hayes. Me like Sun.—Graf hie. Mr, Brovo, late station agent at Moorhead, has been assigned to duty at Casselton, and A. Andrews, late of Detroit, is the agent at Mapleton. The funeral services over the remains of Mr. James Marshall's little child will take place to-morrow morning at io o'clock, in the Presbyterian church. The friends are invited to attenu. Mr. and Mrs. Marshall have the sympathy of the whole community in their sad bereave ment. The Maxima Hospital. The people of Bumarck propose to have a marine hospital at their place or some other provision made by government for the care of their sick steamboat men. About two thousand dollars hus been collected this season of marine hospital dues, from ths men employed on tHfe thirty-seven boats which have been engagod in the trade between Bismarck and the upper river, but the men .had co benefit lrdm the fund.—St,Paul Dispatch. There are twelve hundred men em ployed on the thirty seven steamboats plying to and from Bismarck on tbc upper Missouri, and, though these men pay their hospital dues monthly, they receive no benefit whatever from the fund, because there is no marine hos pital nearer than St. Louis, and those sick or injured, if indigent, must be taken care of at the expense of their fellows or become a public charge. We shall publish in our nest a peti tion addressed to the Secretary of the Treasury, In relation to this subject, which should be signed by every owner of steamboat stock, master, mate, clerk or "rooster" interested in navigation on the upper Missouri. This thing should be pushed until the rights of these men are conceded. The govern ment taxes them for hospital purposes and where is there a point in the land where a hospital is more needed? Dakota criminals will hereafter be con fined at Detroit, Michigan, instead of at Port Madison, Iowa, the change sav ing Dakota a large sum of money annu ally. Several important items are crowded out of to-day's paper, matter already in type being used instead. With more time to devote to editorial work hereafter, there will be less of this crodwing out, while the paper will be improved in make up and, we hope, in press work. At Us Peat Again. Colonel Lounsberry has paid but little attention to the editorial work on the TRIBUNE for nearly a year past, owing to along seige of illness during the fall and winter, close attention to the business interests of the concern for a few months following, and absence lately on a trip to the Black Hills and a brief visit East. But from this time forward *he will be found at his post and proposes to give Bismarck a better newspaper than cities of its size usually support. The Wheat Fields of the Berth Pa cific. From Fargo to Bismarck 194 miles, the railroad passes through an unbroken prai rie wilderness, with but two stations in the entire distance.—Tankton Herald. Between Bismarck and Fargo on the line of the North Pacific the largest wheat farms in the Northwest are to be found. At the present time seven steam threshers are at work on the crop raised on one of these farms. The crop con sists of 11,000 acres and will average over twenty-five bushels of wheat to the acre. This is the largesc farm, it is true, but there are many other large and small ones, and it is stated, and the result will prove the assertion, that the wheat pro duced on-the line of the North Pacific this year, principally between Bismarck and Fargo, will pay that road over one hundred thousand dollars for transporta tion. So much for the "unbroken prairie wilderness." Instead of there being two stations only between Bismarck and Far go there are three, Mapleton, Casselton and Worthington, within the first fifty miles', and either Maplet&n or Casselton will ship more wheat this year than any point on the Dakota Southern railroad excepting Yankton, its terminus. As many know, Colonel W. S. King has labored under great financial trouble for two years past, and now feels that every dollar must be given up to satisfy his creditors, though if left undisturbed he could save a magnificent fortune out of his estate, valued at over $500,000. In view of his present embarrassments, and as a token of their regard, as well as an acknowledgement of his service to his state and particurlarly to the city of Min neapolis in which he resides, a move ment was quietly started ia Minneapolis last week to make him a present of a splendid homestead. An effort was made to keep the affair quiet and it was inten ded to surprise old Thaumaturgis, as he is now called, with the testimonial on his return to Minneapolis from a visit to the Southern part of the State, but the newspapers got hold of the matter and made it public. Col. King deserves even more than this at the hands of Minneapolis people for no man ever labored more unselfishly to promote the interest of the city in which he resides than Colonel King has labored for Minneapolis. Much of her glory is due to his newspaper work, much of her prosperity to his zeal in her behalf and much of her beauty to his lavish ex penditure of money. Who is there *hat ha6 done as much for Minneapolis as Col. King? The Indian Reservation. Several typographical errors occurred in Gen. Carlin's letter in relation to the extension of the Standing Rock reserva tion, as published a few days ago. In stead of these reservations being intended solely for the purpose of breaking up the Indian traffic Gen. Carlin wrote "extend ed solely for the purpose of breaking up the sale of whiskey and ammunition to the Indians." Instead of speaking of the \free lands of this section, Gen. Carlin I wrote of the fine lands along the Missou ri river and the North Pacific R. R. which would enable several hundred I thousand people to live comfortably if they were removed from the crowded cities of the East to these lands. The following is a copy of the execu tiv6 order extending the reservation. I EXECUTIVE MANSION, Nov. 2S, 1S76.— I It is hereby ordered that the tract of country in the Territory of Dakota, on the east side of the Missouri rivei, lying within the following boundaries, viz: Commencing at a point on the south banks ot the Beaver river, intersected by the 100th ^degree of West" Longitude, VOL. 5. BISMARCK, D. T., MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1877. ,, theace in a direct line to the east corner of the Fort Rice Militaiy Reservation, thence in a south-western direction along the said military reservation to the eiist banks of the Missouri river thence with the east banks of the Missouri to the mouth of Beaver river, thence up and with the south banks of Beaver river to the place of beginning, be and the same hereby is withdrawn from sale and set apart for the use of the several tribes of Sioux Indians, as an addition to their present reservation in said Territory. (Signed.) U. S. GRAJit. RIVER HEWS. Every thing is quiet here in river circles as the steamers in Port are pa* tiently awaiting their trips to come in by rail. The Gen. Mead left with 1 good trip for Bufoid on Saturday night. The Benton polled oat for Cow Island on Sunday morning with a moderate trip of freight, bat a cabin full of peo ple. The next boats that leave will be the Peninah 'for Fort Peck with Indian supplies the steamer Gen. Sherman left for Standing ROck, Saturday morn ing, where she will be subject to mlli tary orders deciding her next move ments'. The Big Horn commences to load Tuesday for Cow Island and will get away during the week as the principal part of her cargo is already here. The Rose Bud will remain until after the 25th to clear up all the Diamond freight and carry forward all lots of freight feft over by the Big Horn. As the season is now fast approach ing its close it behooves all having freight for upper points to send it for ward io insure its transportation. The steamer Gen. Custer is still in port and her future is stiil unknown. She is awaiting order from Allegheny. The R. W.Dugan is keeping the Cus ter company and her future depends on the amount of freight that will arrive for government, and she may either go up or down owing to the destination of the government supplies. Our genial friend, King, of the Yel lowstone,still shows his smiling face on change and looms up brightly, notwith standing the- depressing influences of the times. The Hop. One of those pleasant social gather ings came off on Friday evening at the Sheridan, which not onlv goes to break the monotony of frontier life, but brings together our people who yie with one another to make a society here equal to their old homes. These sociables will "be continued during the winter, and with the facilities "Mine Host" of the Sheridan has at his command they mast increase in pleasure and interest to those of our people who "trip the light fantastic toe." For the benefit of those who were not there we will tell who we saw and what they "bad on, so that the Miss Flora McFlimsy will not exclaim "nothing to wear," Our Railroad manager, Mr. Davidson, with lady and daughter honored the so ciety'with their presence.

BY TELEGRAPH. Special io the Lhmarck Tribune. THE WAR ST. PAVL, Sept. 17.—Two of the re doubts, at Plevna captured by the Rus sians and Romanian forces on Tuesday last were recaptured by the Turks Wed nesday evening after six desperate as-, saults during the day which were defeat ed The re capture is attributable, to the' refusal of reinforcements by the Russian commander in chief. The Russians lost thirty canon, which they had plac ed in the captured redoubts. Thursday noon they still held the heights of Grivna which were also captured on Tuesday but were under a heavy fire from the Turkish batteries and the ground was thickly covered with their dead killed in Tuesday's assaults. English accounts represent reinforcements coming to the relief of Osman Pasha, who commands at Plevna, and they also allege that the roads have been opened to them by the successful Turkish movements. They represent the Russians in Schipka Pass as unable to move out as the Turks are to drive them out and as constantly ex posed to murderous artillery fire also that the Russian army in the vicinity of Schumas has been so weakened by rein forcements sent to the army attacking Plevna that it cannot stay the advance of Mahomet Ali which threatens to cut off the supplies of the Russians in Schip ka Pass. BOSS TWEED continued his confession Saturday before the New York alderman's committee say ing money for bribing the legislature to pass the charter bill of eighteen hundred and seventy was furnished by the ring, ring tradesman, and by Jay Gould and Jim Fisk. Ed Barbour had six hundred thousand dollars for BRIBING ASSXMBLEYMEN and Tweed himself bribed the senators. The money thus used was reimbursed by "raising" and forging bills against the city. Among the prominent men whom Tweed claims to have employed and pay ed large sums for ring work, are Hugh Hastings, Senator Wood, and others, while ex-Mayor Hall had a regular share of the ring dividends. THE SALT LAKE grand jury got possession of the probate court divorce records showing that hun dreds of divorces have been granted to parties living in the States without resi dence or even appearance in Utah. PRESIDENT HAYES had an enth usiastic reception at Cincin nati Saturday evening and to-day will go to Louisville where arrangements have been made for a popular demonstration in his honor. MAJOR SPAULDING, Ex naval pay master at San Francisco, has been released on bail but Pinney, his clerk, remains in jail THREE DETACHMENTS of troops from Oregon are in pursuit of the Warm Springs Indians who have killed fourteen whites, wounded eight, and captured a freight train of one hund red horses and mules. A St. Petersburgh dispatch says the Russian police have discovered a plot to ASSASSINATE THE CZAR. Thirty new cases of YELLOW FEVER were reported at Ferdinand, Florida, Saturday evening. Nearly all of the people are sick, in some cases whole fam ilies. Trains out of the city are crowded with fugitives. At Mospheria the situa tion is unfavorable and the fever is spread ing rapidly. Two physicians, one drug gist and eight nurses with supplies and disinfectants arrived on Saturday. THE FAIR GROUNDS at Minneapolis were sold Saturday under mortgage given by Col. King for abou 11 ten thousand dollars borrowed from the State National Dank, for thirteen thous and dollars, J. L. Knight buying the grounds and buildings which belonged to Col King, and are estimated to be worth fifty thousand dollars. TRACK LAYING from Brainerd to Sauk Rapids has reach ed Belle Prairie five miles north of Little Falls and is progressing fast. Col. De-| Graff is bossing the job his foreman being! ill. ROLLA M.

Bring us specimens of wheat in the bundle, and grain, if possible, oats ditto, say a peck of potatoes, samples of corn, turnips, beets, carrots, etc. These specimens will be placed on exhibition at the fair, and the Governor will see, personally, that they are given proper display, and will then send them to the permanent exhibition at Philadelphia, free transportation -having been pro vided' for. this purpose.- Mow don't forget to bring in the specinens. Let Burleigh count/ be represented. The writer would gladly attend the fair if he could spare the time to do so. If any of oar citizens can go they ought to £0, and we are confident they will be well repaid for the time and money spent. BIeih"arcik"at the Minnesota Fair. On the vegetable tables at the State Fair there is a good show from Bis marck, D. T., including the best, and largest potatoes on exhibition. There is also one sample of good wheat and another of oats from the same locality. Next year the Bismarckers propose to show lots of grain of their raising.—St. Paul Dispatch. Tes it is true that the display of veg etables from Bismarck at the Minneso ta State Fair was the best and largest on exhibition. Of course they were entered for show not for premium and as Col. Thompson truly remarked, they were raised for market not for show, and those on exhibition were only some that was left after supplying steam boats, Black Hillers and the city, not to speak of shipments to the military posts. But the display was admired by every one and as a result there has been much inquiry for land in the vi cinity of Bismarck, as all are now sat isfied: that the.soil is all that can be desired and the climate is good enough. Gen, Miles on the Move. '"Capt. Pate Davidson, of the Yellow stone Transportation' Company, who arrived last Friday evening from the Yellowstone, \saysv Sitting Boll' has crossed the line and that Gen. Miles has moved on him with his entire force, leaving only- a small guard at the new pofcts.J The citizens, however, have all been armed. Gen. Miles is the proper person to negotiate with the old chap for his continued sojourn on the American side of the line. He will put powder and lead ?where it will do ibost good, and reserve his kind irords and sympathy for those who de serve that treatment. Personal.

The Northern Pacific has been joined with Credit Mobilier, Pacific Mail subsi dy, and other humbugs and swindles of the flush era succeeding the war, and has been used, with them to point moral and adorn a tale, whenever a sample of horrid villainy was needed. But a change is coming. The big wheat crops of Minnesota -are opening the eyes of the country to many facto heretofore seriously obscured. The grand enterprise of Mr. Oliver Dalrym ple and associates, in opening extensive farms along the line, and their splendid success with this year's crop has been a wonderful revelation to thousands of our Eastern brethren. Already the press of the older states is showing signs of return ing reason. The following from the Al legheny, Penn., Evening Mail, is a sam ple of many utterances which we have noted recently. We have a word of caution to holders of Northern Pacific railroad bonds, which we desire in all candor to offer lor then consideration. The latest information concerning the Northern Pacific and the country and lands through which it runs is of the most assuring and gratifying character. The Mail has always asserted that the investment in these securities was safe and would ultimately prove pro fitable. We have just had an interview with Theodore N. Nevin, Esq presi dent of the First National Bank ot this city, one of our most successful and en terprising business men, who has just re turned from a thorough inspection of the road as far as completed, extending to Bismarck, D. T., its present terminus, whose testimony fully confirms all that has been said in its favor in these col umns. He speaks in the most flattering terms of the character of the soil along the line, of the road and th.e delightful climate and advantages of the country. He reiterates what we have learned from our own observations that for depth, richness and fertility the land is unsur passed by that of any other on the conti nent. We have no hesitation in declar ing as our opinion that just as certain as the earth revolves on its axis so surely will the Northern Pacific railroad be found to pass through the garden spot of America. Persons holding the bonds of this company would find it to their inter est to have an interview with Mr. Nevin, and ascertain the opinions ot one whose intelligence and sagacity entitle them to deliberate consideration. Our advice, which can be takea for what it is worth to all holders of Northern Pacific bonds, is to hold on to them or case they are disposed to part with them, do not sacri fice them. Time and patience will bring all things right. Fortunately for u?, self-interest comes in to supplement the good work of secu ring justice to our maligned and misun dersood tributary region. Every one of these Northern Pacific bonds, is an im migration document for Minnesota and Dakota. Its owner has a living interest in all that pertains to this country. He eagerly scans the crop reports he thirsts for information h2 seeks it, and now finds it to his liking he spreads it, and has a pecuniary interest in making other men believe it. He becomes an enthusi astic, a willing, and zealous missionary. His little thousand dollar bond, is good for thiee or four hundrrd acres of land. If he can make himself and hisneighbors believe that this land is fertile, enormous ly productive, worth five dollors an acre and soon to be worth fifty, his assets swell in proportion—he is a rich and hap py man. Thus the wide dissemination of these bonds through the country, which in the days of our darkness and gloom was such a calamity to this region, will, now that the better days have come, prove a general blessing.
