To the Alitor of the Pioneer Pi ess: This inquiry appeared in the Bismarck TRIBUNE a Jew days ago at the head of an extract from the Pioneer Press, which had probably been penned by some jeal ous pale-face who envied poor Joseph his one solitary streak ot good luck. I was at first inclined to think this a man ufactured slander on our sensible ladies, but I have since meta pretty young lady who frankly owns that she really and truly did kiss Joseph. But it wasn't a municipal kiss, nor an official kiss, nor yet a kiss platonic. It was a kiss of mis chief, proffered by a fun-loving young lady who claims that she kissed him just because her friends told her she daren't to. "Every one to her taste," as the old woman said when she kissed the cow, and if tolks want to kiss Indians or ugly white men either, nobody cares if they do. Only it isn't right to hold the whole town ^responsible fer so exceptional a breach of individual taste. It may be true that "half a loaf is better than no bread," but it seems to me that such tasteless crumbs as these would prove starvation diet to any one possessing a just appreciation of these little offerings of friendship. Just think of it! Kissing an Indian with three squaws and no mus tache! Ugfi! SUSANNAH. 5 W. H. Ross h«»s resigned as teacher of the higher grade school, and H. Manley has been elected bis successor.

PAUL, Dec^ 17.—In the executive session of the Senate Friday a controver sy arose between Senator's Gordon and Conkling. Gordon finally accused Conk ling of pocketing Smith's nomination for collector at Mobile. Conkling re plied "What the Senator states is whol ly untrue." Gordon, in an undertone, said he "should demand a» apology. Conkling replied, "It apologies are to be made the Senator from Georgia should set the example." Gordon did not de sire to further interrupt the proceedings but will demand a settlement at another time. Conkling replied "Ijpam pre pared for it now or at any other time." During this controversy Gordon is said to have advanced threateningly, but turned back to his seat on some Senator remarking that the scene was disgraceful. Fiiday evening and Saturday morning rumors prevailed at Washington that Gordon had sent a challenge or invited Cenkling to come out of the District, which rumer his Iriends contradict. Sat urday afternoon the Senate in secret ses sion caused a memorandum to be entered on the journal, as in the case of Poindex ter and Forsyth forty years ago, reciting the main facts of the case, saving that the first offensive words were inspired by an honest misunderstanding oi what the other had said, and all that was offensive was the outgrowth of misapprehension and is mutually withdrawn. COULD NOT GET IT. The democrats of the house failed to get a vote on their resolution for a gen eral investigation. Both Houses have adjourned to Janua ry 10th. MURDER. At Silver Springs, Wyoming Territory, Friday, Kenneday, of Co. A, third cav alry, enroute to the Black Hills, threat ened the life of Sergeant Schaffer. When camped that evening Kennedy went to the tent where he supposed Schaffer would be, found and opened the flap, and fired at the first man he saw, killing him instantly. The victim wasn't Schaffer, but was first sergeant J. A. Van Mott. Kennedy was immediately ar rested and put under guard. The men of the company were greatly excited, Van Mott being a favorite. During the night a blanket was thrown over the head of the guard, he overpowet ed, and Kennedy HUNG TO THE RIDGE POLE ef the guard tent till dead. Van Mott's body was to-day sent to Laramie for burial. WANT TO GO BACK TO MILES. The Cheyenne chiefs in council with Gen. Sheridan asked that they 'might re main with Miles, assist him in case of an outbreak in the spring, but were informed that they must move to the Indian Ter ritory in April. GEN. GRANT sailed from Genoa to Leghorn Saturday. APPOINTED. Ex-Gor. McCormick, of Arizona, late of the treasury department, has been appointed commissioner general for the Paris exposition. MARSH HARVESTER CO., of Seymour, Ind,. have made an assign ment. PEACE WAKTED. Porte's circular to the powers, while professing ability to continue the con test, earnestly appeals for interposition to stay the war. MORE DIFFICULTY. The troubles in El Paso county, arising some time age from an attempt by the stock company to held possession of the salt lagoons heretofore treated as com mon property, and which the people of the country, mostly Mexicans by birtb, reserved for common property in the treaty of cessationy have again resulted in violence. The State guard, number ing twenty troop?, fought with the mob Thursday and Friday, and six militia men and one merchant of El Paso were killed. The remainder ot the militiamen were intrenched Friday night at El Paso, surrounded by hundreds of armed Mexi cans, part ef whom are said to be from the other side of the Rio Grande. Gov. Throckmorton has authorized the enlist ment of militia in the neighboring coun tries, and appealed to the president for federal aid. The cabinet is not disposed to regard the affair of other than local significance. The statements which came from county officers are discredited by the report that they are members of the salt company, but the regular troops were promptly ordered to assist in the restoration of peace as soon as they can reach El Paso, THE LAST SAD RITES. The funeral of J. C. Braden, Masonic Grand Master of Minnesota, at Litch field yesterday, was attended by about one thousand masons, besides ex-soldiers and neighbors. ST. PAUL, Dec. r8.—The Pope contin ues to improve Eads jetties have produced twenty-two feet of channel, two hundred feet wide, entitling him to a second government installment of half a million, Bowles,* of Springfield Republican, is getting well enough to^ inquire "what's the news." A BOTTLE OF PETROIJKUM was brought into^ Dead wood yesterday from an oil spring discovered eight miles from Jersey's stockade, a*i hundred miles south. No late Indian depredations in or about the Hills. Osceola, of Missouri, Friday night was taken possession by an armed mob which CARRIED OFF ALL THE TAX BOOKS from the county offices, the object being to prevent collection of taxes levied pur suant to judgment against the county for past due interest on railroad bonds. THE FORTE'S APPEAL to the European powers for mediation on the basis of preserving Turkey's Empire as before the war is receiving friendly but not encouraging answers. The Porte will have to treat direct with Russia. TROOPS from Forts Davis, Staton, Bayard and Santa Fee are marching on El Paso. Those from Staton probably already reached there and relieved the militia squad said to have been surrounded and in danger of massacre. OFFICIAL REPORTS TO SHERIDAN say the mobs are altogether composed of citizens of El Paso county. No Mexi cans have crossed. The affair is purely local and grew from a dispute about the title to Salt Lagoons heretofore common property but now claimed by a company which includes the county officials in Chauton county, Mo. GREAT EXCITEMENT prevails, growing trom a robbery and ar sen committed at Salisbury by a gang of negroes, and the desire of the people to lynch the criminals. So far the negroes are ahead, having wounded beveral whites and part of them have escaped arrest. Early yesterday morning A FIRE broke out in Hughes & Co.'s Hardware Store, Nashville, and when extinguished it was found that cotton saturated with oil was scattered through the buildings also powder. Seventy-three pounds of powder were found within three feet ot where the fire had been, hot enough to melt metalic spoons. The house had been ignited in four places. The California (Dem.) caucus finally nominated J. J. Farley for United States Senator to succeed Sargent. The report of yesterday that Osman Pasha committed suicide because the doctor said his foot must be amputated is officially contradicted. He is not dead. The Public Schools. The public schools close for the holi day vacation this week. After the ho!i davs they will be reorganize to some ex tent Mr. Manley, of Minn., has been engaged as principal, Miss Ward will be continued in charge of the primary de partment Mrs. Kay's school, which is over-crowded, also closes this week. Mrs. Ray has twenty pupils and has refused fourteen others for want of room. This fact shows that a third school, an inter mediate department, is also required. There are sufficient funds to give this de partment and thus do away with the ne cessity of a private school. Then why not add another department to the pub lic schools. Let Mr. Manley, who is un questionably qualified to do so, take charge of the high school give Miss Ward the intermediate and place Mr?. Ray in charge of the primary department. Then there will be no more cause for dis satisfaction with our pablic schools. Each teacher named is specially fitted for the work assigned and the schools would at once take front rank among the schools of the land. Why not begin af ter the holidays and make thorough work? The fact that so manv parent* look to the private sc.iool for relief shows that a large and unquestionably respect able element demands additional school facilities and the TRIBUNE believes it to be the duty of the school board to give them. The Sister*' (Catnolic) n-jimpl at Bis narck will commence about March 1st. Elaborate plana have been laid and will carried out for the establishment of the school of the Sorlhwi-.tt »t Bis marck, inclii«lifi|g day school for the ac •ommodation of tlio*e residing in the ity and a bo*rriiag school for the ac immolation of children from the posts or other points abros^. The Fathers hiv* tike.: ii of rhis matter and wiH labor earnestly, having all of the means necessary at their command to make the school success. The im portance «»f this enterprise to Bismarck can scarcely be estimated.
