All of the government works which
have been in progress on the lines of the
lower Fox river will be completed this

"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

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An unpublished letter from Sitting

The funeral services over the remains
of Mr. James Marshall's little child will
take place to-morrow morning at io

Mrs. Marshall have the sympathy of the

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

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.—

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

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,

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.

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

this purpose, and invites all to con­
tribute from their best.' 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

fair if he could spare the time to do so.

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.

have all been armed. Gen. Miles is
the proper person to negotiate with
the old chap for his continued sojourn

serve that treatment.

Especially has this been the case since
th|failur4 ofJay
Cooke & Co. precipita-
ted millions of do! lars of its bonds upon
a depressed market, involving serious
loss to many of its confiding investors.
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
