TO-MORROW NIGHT An. adjourned meeting of the Yankton chamber of commerce will be held at the Reform club rooms to-morrow evening at 7 o'clock. Business of importance will be considered and a full attendance of members requested. J. C. MCVAY, President. LOCAL LACONICS. Special communication of Yankton Chap ter, No. 1, R. A. M., Friday evening, March 5lh. Work in the M. it. degree. The foundation for Lyons' two story brick block was began to-day and the building will be constructed as rapidly as possible. The first regular meeting of 1880 will be held by the Yankton Hook & Ladder com pany, this evening at 7 P. M., for the elec tion of officers. All members are requested to be present. The Yankton signal office reports as fol lows for to-day Maximum temperature up to 2 p. M., 43° minimum temperature up to 2 P. if, 19°. River two feet three inches above low water mark. A rise of three inches in the past twenty-four hours. Yesterday morning Tom Zeibach opened a dosen sets of the game of fifteen and th'ey were taken about as fast as he could hand them out He has sent an order for a gross and mav follow it up with a further order for a car load if the excitement continues. For a simple device "fifteen" is having a wonderful run all over the country. The outfit consists of fifteen square and flat blocks numbered from one to fifteen. Thev are placed In a square box just large enough to contain them and leave the space of one block to spare, with the numVprs mixed up just as they happen to corns. The trick is to place these numbers in regular order without lifting any of tbe blocks out of the box. Sometimes it can be done in a few minutes and again it takes hours to accom plish the task. The longer the game lasts, the more absorbed the victim becomes. There is a prospect that our insane hospital will have to be enlarged. Burns, tbe most inexperienced member of the two wheeled club, went down on the levee this morning to exercise his bicycle. It had been standing in the stable for sever al days and felt unusually frisky, but Burns had confidence in his restraining powers and allowed that he was a match for tbe machine. The eyer watchful reporter was passing that way a few hours after the occur rence and bis attention was attracted by a singular looking furrow plowed up along side the railroad for two or three rode. Gravel stones had been thrown right and left and a yawning gash was torn in the turf. The unanimous conclusion of the reporter was that a train of cars had run off the track, but his subsequent investigations re* vealed the fact that Burns had been pushing his nose along the ground at tbe rate of six tv miles an hour. It was tbe old, old story. When sailing along under full headway tbe bicycle had kicked up behind and Burns had concluded to go on ahead a little ways without the machine. It would have been batter for him had he traveled on foot and in an upright position, but he seemed to prefer the horizontal attitude and we sup pose he has aright to slide on his nose if he wants to. W^make these explanations because they will save Burns a great deal of annoyance. The public will now know without asking him what's the matter with that proboscis. TO THE PUBLIC. For the convenience of my customers I have m*de arrangements with Mr. Tom Zeibach at tbe post office news store to re ceive orders for wood and coal also to re ceive payment for all accounts and give re ceipted bills all orders thus received will have prompt attention.

The case of the United States against Dr. L'vingston was slvan to tbe Jury at one o'clock this afternoon snd they retired to consult upon verdict. The chtrge against the defendant is thst he presented false claim to the government snd bscked It up with fictitious voucher. Tbe facts in the ease are that Dr. Livingston paid his Indians $348.35 atumpage money and the action lies in the alleged tnforaaalitv In tbe manner of payment The court bo.lds that he should hare psid them either in United States currency or in a check on an authorised government de pository. As the doctor had not the curren cy in his possession and as there was no depository available, he adopted the ueual course at all Indian agencies—gave the Indians a check on the trading store, where they received their currency, which was returned, to the trader by means of a check on a United States depository. It was simply a transaction for the convenience of (he Indians ^and while it might have been a technical violation of some of the government rules, it was not in any eense an effort to defraud the government. The Indian witnesses all swore that they re ceived their money in brass trading store checks, the latter being redeemable either in goods or currency. Dr. Livingston, Hud son, Brockman and Leclaire all swore that the Indians were paid in currency and that some of them afterwards changed their larger bills into checksi the trader, Hudson, not having enough small bills to satisfy their wants. Richards alm swore that the Indians received cur rency'—that he saw it in their possession. Thus it was a question of veracity between Indians and white men, and when it is con sidered that tbe Indians have been for two years under the personal control of the enemy of Dr. Livingston, it will not appear strange that this difference of opinion exists. But this variance is only an incident In tbe case. The court h"l is that unless Dr. Livingston paid the Indians in currency or in checks upon a gov ernment depository he has been guilty of a henious nffeDse. It is this construction of tbe law that has made tbe case a difficult one to contes'. It does not appear to be a question as to whether or not tbe defend1 ant has actually defrauded the government, but' whether or not be departed in tbe slightest from tbe devious wind jngs of government red tapeism in tbe. Derformance of bis duty. Years have elapsed sioce theje transact oas occur red, and in tbe construction of tli3 case no allowioce has been made for aay for getlnlness of tbe details of this,an ordinary, every day transaction. Tbe most rigorous requirements are txiclcd and all because it is alleged that a man paid out govern ment funds one way when he should have paid them in another way This is Hayt ism and Hammondism exemplified. The officers of the government feel that they must produce' at least one result out of all the hue and cry instituted at the instance of a confessed perjurer and his disgraced associate. Hence every little technicality which could be seized upon has been lugged into the case and the man whose honor is at Btake has been compelled to place his back to the wall and defend himself from every point of at tack. In the eyes of common sense jus tice he has committed no offense, but tech nicalities which are commonly supposed to be inoperative in effect will occa sionally circumvent the best meaning citizen The charge of the court was directly against the defendant It is not very well received by those of the legal fraternity wilh whom we have con versed. We did not hear it p.nd have not read it and do not, therefore, feel like going any deeper into the subject than give a re flection of the sentiment which has been ex pressed by others. The jury retired at one o'clock this after noon and at five o'clock had not bten heard from. LENT IS HERE. Buy your oysters and fresh fish atJenkin son's. Oysters guaranteed to be always fresh.

CraSiMllsa «r rnvtoii WMkly Mnawn the Probabil ities mt U» S«aa*a. The Dead wood Press copies Hit' iteat in the Press and Dakotaian Port Pin ie cor respondents relative to Die rvublisbment of a stage line on the Pierre route by the Bismarck company, u.nl uddstbe following: This morning, a representative of the Press called on A^cnt Selble with a view ascertaining tbu facts in tbe case. Selbie informed bim that tbe spirit and meaning of tbu paragraph was true that inn Bis marck line would as soon as nractlcable run a line of coaches to tbe Missouri river, but .betber to Pierre he could not now state. It miitbt be lo Biule City, or anywhere e'sj where tbe railroad touched tbe Missouri. Anyway, tbe fact could be stated that that company would connect wilh any line that offered tbe shortest and most practicable route to the east "even," said Selbie, "it we run to tbe Union Pacific, it makes no difference lo us." He knew nothing about the construction or the securing of a com pany's office at Pierre, and led us to inter that he tuought sucb a thing could not fce relied on until Ihe actual crossing of the railroad was settled as to locslion. The Bismarck company will probably not have a monopoly of the business from the end of the Northwestern railroad as there are other eyes on the chance. The Wyom ing stage company has the mail contract over the Pierre route and is ready lo pnt on regular coaches as soon as there is business sufficient There is already on foot a pro ject to run semi-weekly steamers from Yank ton to Pierre and if this plan goes into oper ation, a stage line will connect with the steamers at Pierre. The freight business via Pierre is becoming so extensive that semi weekly boats can be run with profit and the Coulson people are ready lo establish and operate the line. THE RIVER. Captain Todd's full force is at work on the boats on tbe ways. The ferry boat was floated from the bar by the rise and now lies alongside the Western. Tbe steamer Black Hills has got her new dress of paint complete and she looks as handsome as anything that skims the waters of tbe Big Muddy. Sioux City Journal, 4th The boat ways were cleared up yesterday and everything made ready lor a rise. Over 1,000 blocks used in blocking up the boats were hauled away. Everything is now in shape for any stage of water that may come down The fitting up of tbe engines of the Nellie Peck and Fontenelle is being hurried as rapidly as possible. In case of a sudden rise it might be found handy to get up steam.. The going down of the water* has left the Niobrara bard aground. The Benton was a trifle aground on Tuesday, but is floating now. The ice gorge which started in the narrow bend just-below town has grown to formida ble dimensions and when it breaks there Will be a lively scene at the landing. It has piled the river full of heavy ice as far up as the vision can retch and raised the water about four feet. Around the boats at the ways it is wedged in tightly. About one o'clock this afternoon the frozen mass moved down stream a few rods and its won derful force was speedily demonstrated. The Far West, Western and Black Hills, lying next to the Bhore and at the foot of the ways were lifted up against the bank in an instant and there they remain, held fast by tbe preS' sure of the ice against their sides. The spars of the Western, Black Hills and Far West, which were set on the shore side were tripped up and tumbled into the river and it was necessary to cut the Black Hills' spar to save her derrick from de» truction. Captain Todd says it will not be possiable to push the boats back into deep water so long as the pressure of ice re mains, and when the gorge breaks and the ice runs off the water will go with it, leav ing the three boats high and dry on the bank. The Far West is in the worst shape, as she was shoved upon a flat bench which will be dry when tbe water subsides. The Western's bow was pushed up on tbe ways about thirty feet. Further trouble is antici pated when the gorge breaks and the entire mass of ice is put in motion. THE BEST 5 CENT CIGAR in the CITY, Clear Havana tobacco, at Jenkin son's, Third Street, near Cedar.

Hill's proposed meeting at tbe coml house in the interest of a university tor V»' k'on. Of course no sucb meeting v'•r held, nor bad tbe erratic proposition any ioditmenl outside Ihe alleged hrain of ll»n gbort ol' Beau Hickman.— Yiinkton Herald. The impression gained by newspapers outside the city was not conveyed through the medium of any "shots" and "drives" which have appeared in the Press and Da kotaian, but was a natural inference derived from ibe publication of a call for such a meeting in our paper. General Hill had been annoying us for days with his schemes and finally to get rid of bim we permitted the publication of his university meeting call, knowing well enough that nobody would attend the gathering anl hoping it would end the importunities of a man who had made a nuisance of himself on a great many subjec's. In this tense the Press and Dakotaian is wholly to blame for the false impression which has gone out regarding university efforts, and our only excuse is that General Hill worried us into it, though that isn't a very good one. No university meeting was held and no citizen of Yankton took any interest in tbe scheme. We haye bad several columns more of General Hill's manuscript which never saw the light of publication. Perhaps the Herald would like some of it. COOL MILWAUKEE E E THE CELEBRATED Jos. Schlitz Milwajikse Beer! ON TAP. Tbe quantity I sell enables me to keep it fresh at all times. GQ 'St CEO.
