Oanders, alias "Steamboat Charley," un

murder, will be taken to Sioux City to-
n,8ht.
He made a confession to-day, in
which he says:
He was with the conspirators and drank
,^em' They had agreeJ to. attack
Haddock and otherprominent prohibition
ists. He WAS-with Kosnitzki, teavitt.
Triber* Arensdorl and others during the
afternoon. They were "cussing" Rev. Mr.
Haddock and other prohibitionists and
said they, were running the" state and
ought to bo tarred., and feathered or
strung up. Tribnr said he would give
any of the boys $25 apiece who
would lay old Haddock out. They were
espicUlly bitter against him. Kosnitzki,
Granda and.others were given money and
told to go and assaultseveral prohibition
ists, among them the Rev. Mr. Haddock.
Triber told i. them to "lay for" Haddock
and knock him down when ho came otit o!
the livery stable. About C:30 or 7 o'clock
Granda and Kosnitzki started for
the livery, stable. They were followed by
Triber, Arensdorf, Leavitt and oth
men about, tho. saloon. The scheme
ior Kosuitzki and Granda/' to
assault Mr. .Haddock firsthand the others
would help them out. As Mr. Haddock
came along the street.they went up to-him
in athreatehing.abusive way,Granda hold
ing a revolver, of which he does not know
how he became possessed. Just then
Arensdorf rushed up and grabbed
the pistol as he (Granda) Was
about to drop it, with the remark:
"You are toodrunk to shoot,v coward."
Then Arensdorf fired, and Mr. Haddock
fell to -the sidewalk. They all .fled
that night. Arensdorf gave Granda. and
Kosnitzki $25 each and told them to skip
out. Instead of doing so they stayed in
town and got drunk. Tho next day Pied
Polger, Grander's brother-in law, put him,
his wife and Kosnitzkfon the flatboat and
started them down the river. About
twenty-five miles down the river they were
signaled by a horseman on shore, whom
tboy found, to be Polger. Polger gave Mrs.
.Granda $125 more and took Kosnitzki
across the country to a small station,
-where he left for San Francisco. Kosnitzki
and the others claim that when Arensdorf
fired Mr. Haddock was making for him with
a heavy window sash weight which hvdrew
from his pocket. Granda says hedoes not
know what Haddock was doing when the
shot was fired

Of such a character is thesterlingnovelty
in the shape of a Counter-Wrapper»Pad,
(12x8% inches) for the counter use ol
druggists and dealers in medicine. They
comprise humorous sketches from the rich
and. racy pens of "Bill Nye" and other
talented and well-known "funny men,"
finely illustrated in the broadest style of
the comic art. At once the'design is mani
iest and most pleasing.
As a wrapper to a parcel each bears in
graceful lettering bis name and place of
business. It is gotten out by The Charle3
A. Vogeler Company, Baltimore, Md., and
is being distributed freely to their patrons
in trade. It is another proof of the well
earned reputation of the remedies manu
factured by that house auu another ol its
ingenious methods of spreading the story
ol the wonderful cures wrought by St. Ja
cobs Oil. In verse and illiterated lines an
other story is told of an equally famous
and efficacious remedy—Red Star Cough
Cure—which has been shown by the analy
ses of the most distinguished chemists to
be free from opiates and poisons the cost
of which, is only^twenty-five cents.

be used with profft as a reliable class, book
in publicand private schools. As a house
hold reference it is invaluable, and children
aa well as grown people can read and un
derstand it. While this publication is in
a measure an advertising medium for. the
Railway Company, that fuct does not de
tract from its value, and a copy of '-Why
and Wherefore" will be sent free to any
address by enclosing ten cents in postage

THE CONSTITUTION AND LEGIELATTTBE.
HOBON, Dak., Special Telegram, Dea 15.—
It was 10:30 this morning before President
Edgerton called the constitutional conven
tion to order. A member offered prayer, and
then the prosidont read a lengthy and patri
otic paper, commending that whatever is
best to bo done should be done in a firm and
patriotic spirit. He suggested that if a mod
ification of the boundaries of the state would
allay irritation, or if a change of name would
make it more agreeable to others, it would
be well to make these changes. These were
his only practical suggestions. Judge Camp
bell ollered the following, whloh was unani
mously adopted:
Resolved, That a committee of conference of
nine delegates be apyotnted by the president of
tnia convention, who are Instructed to take Into
consideration the present emergencies and re
port to the convention when it reassembles to
day for its consideration snoh a plan of action
as they may agree upon as amiable to such
emergencies.
Resolved, That this convention invite the uen
ato and house pt jAresentaiivps to appoint a
joint cowniiLteeofconprcss to meet and confer
with ihecomm.ttee of this convention, with a
view to obtaining the sentiments of these' bodies
upon the same subject,-.and that this convention
Invite the president and the uovernor to meet
and take part with said oommittee in such con
ference for the same object, and that the secre
tary of this convention act as secretary of said
conference committee.
The president appointed as {he committee
Mepsra. Campbell, Haines^ Owen, Myers,
Dott, Doxnard, Williams, Neill -and Keilam.
Mr. Haines reported resolutions
to themem
ory of the late Casslus & Reed a memberof
the convention. Adopted. Adjourned' to 8.'
p. m. At that hour, the conference coramtt
tee not being prepared to report^ a further
adjournment was taken till to-morrow. It
was developed this afternoon .that all. the
members, of the conference committee, are
lawyers, and that when they met for confer
ence before meeting with the senate and
house committeemen, all of them agreed
that the repeal of the restraining olauee is
the proper thing to do by the convention,
and that the latter has full power to doso
so that this branch of the general conference
committee, and the one that wilt have the'
most weight with the convention, is of one
mind as to the course to be pursued in
emergency.
THE STATE LEGHLATUBE
convened at noon. In the absence of Lieut.
Gov. Franic, the senate was oalled to order
by its secretary, John H. Drake. Without
transacting any business it took a recess till
2 p. in., so that members-absent might ar
rive by the noon tram and participate in the
proceedings. At this hour the body again
assembled, when Hon. Henry Neill of
Big Stone City was chosen president
pro tem. Action was taken on the commu
nication from the constitutional convention
by the appointment of Senators Gamble, Bo
gart, Adams, Bronson and Templeton as
members of the joint oommittee. Adjourn
ment Was then taken till 8 to-night to hear
Gov. Mellette's message read. In the house
Speaker Eddy brought down his ravel at
noon, and called upon Rev. Mr. McCostin to
offer prayer. Mr. Dow of Brown county was
count of the dangerous Illness of Chief Olerk
McConnell, Ed J. Sherman, was appointed
nesistant clerk. The house took a recess till
2. On reassembling the speaker laid before
the house the resolutionsof the constitutional
convention .Messrs. Allen, Shan
non, "Wardell, Potter^'JFherson. ana Treat
were appointed members -of th^oonference
committee. Adjourned dll 8 p.'' -,y

Hessrs. Campbell. Owen, Myers and Kellom
argued in favor or repealing the restruinln?

urged with reason that as this language ocours
in the ordinanoe and schedule, and is in hp
sense a pint of the constitution, but only inci
dent thereto,
IT MAY BE ANNULLED
by the convention now In session. While this
view is technically correot, this eootion wa$
promulgated as apart of the constitution, and
in my judgment should not be discarded with
out a formal amendment to that effect, subjeot
to the popular ballot by act of the legislature,
as provided for ^amending the organic aot
proper, and that until auoh timo all, executive,

sentat'Vcs of the stai^, shall* in your wisdom,
determine that the time boa come
for further aotion, I shall make
your polloy my own and afford
yon whatever aid I can. In that event I should
reoommend that no further immediate aotlon bo
taken than may be necessary to tost the validity
ot the state as oraanized in the executive and
judiciary departments
of the government. What

is necessarily biased by partisan impiflS&I have

Political tryanny in a free government cannot

the chiegest calamity possible to befall you

your courage and your Btate intaot. I refer to
the possibility of the formation of a constltu

BIOHT OF THB STATU OF DAKOTA
having beoome first vested and never having
been allowed to lapse, wiU prevail against any
subsequent attempt to ordain a local form of
government within her border* Here, in our
judgment, should be made the final atand, here
the last die cast to- determine whether the con
stitution of the fathers shall be maintained upon
the earth. The public domain which we
inhabit was held subjeot to limitation
The limitations imposed by the treaty made
with a foreign power before pnrohase, the ordi
nate compact 0^1787 extended over our area
east of tne Missouri, by the organio aot of
Minnesota Territory, and last of all by the
geniuu of our institutions, made it one to foster
and-seoure to men the right of local government
through statehood, and the rights of
the state to protection through a com
mon union. This is the*grand feature
of constitutional government, -distinguishing
between it and lmperta)J?ra,-and 1b thst whloh
makes oivil liberty worth an exchange for blood
and treasure. Objection is urged by our enemies
that Dakota was carved out of an existing terri
tory, and was thereby dismembered without
right. Besides being overthrown by numerous
precedents, this postulate falls by analy
sis., The territory is in a sense
possessed of political sovereignty,
being the breatlon ot oongress and formed with
out the consent of its inhabitants. When a
people have ereo* ed ntate boundaries wi|hin the
possessions 6f ^Jae United States, invomng no
confiiot,with states.before defined, formed a
constitution republican in form, and erected
thereunder the machinery of local government,
.the sovereign creative power ot bringing
the new state into being has been
exerted and spent. Action by the general
government preceding admission is exercised In
a fiduciary capacity, toward a trust in esse. It
has already become a new state which may be
admitted into the Union. If the new state
comes brlnking reasonable prerequisites as to
ares, boundaries population, material resources
and development, and her citizens are unobjec
tionable in their moral practices, and has estab
lished its devotion to law and order and its
fealty to the Union, it has acquired vested rights
which it is not possible for. any lawful power to
obliterate.
SECOND AND LAST DAT.
HUBON, Dak., Special Telegram, Deo. 18.—
The joint conference committee finished
their work early this morning. When the
convention convened,'after prayer by Mr.
Walton, Judge Campbell, chairman of the
committee, submitted the following:
Resolved, That the conference committee rec
ommeud the repeal of seotion 32 of the schedule
and ordinance, and reoorc the following ordi-
port:-

Hr. Gamble was the principal speaker In
opposition to this theory. He strongly as
serted that^hlsvopinion was contrary to his
sympathies. get-jie could not see the subject
in the light h€3ddy othera The session con
tinued till a law hour. and only adjourned in
season for supper andLto listen to the gov
ernor's message. It is certain that the sym
pathies and the wishes of the convention
and of the legislature lead them, almost to a
man, to wish for that solution of the ques
tion which will the soonest and the surest
compass statehood This onco found, the
remainder of the business will be rapidly
done. The convention will repeal the re
straining clause, but it devolves on the leg
islature to set the time for the Btate govern
ment to begin action.
THB OOVEBNOBt8 MESSAGE.
Before the legislature, the convention and
hundreds of others. Gov. Mellette to-night
delivered his message, saying:
Notwithstanding past reverses, so great is my
faith in the aimljzhty force of the enlightened
sentiment of justice prevailing lathe age, thac I
can but hope that upon calm deliberation the
popular house of coueress will yet concede our
request, which it admits to be reasonable, sinoe
It must ooour to them that an unreqiiited
wrong to any citizeu or lawful political
organization of cltisens Is a blow at
he rights of every citizen and state.
It congress, In its discretion shall divide the
territorial domlin on or pear the prfttent bound
ary line of the state, insuring us our statehood
in the end, and if this division is made subject
to approval by the ballot of the pedfele, we will
welcome this solution of the problem and oheer
fully accept the new situation 2 would unre

Mr.^ Taylor^^ttoved that the minority report
be sabmitted. Mr.' Haines spoke against the
majority: report1
He held that all informed lawyers know that
the power of congress was supreme in the terri
tories. Even in toe day of the present chief
)ustloe, and in a case directly affecting Dakota,
suoh a decision has been made by the supreme
court of the United States. If a state govern
ment were set up ID would at once come in con
flict, at some point, with the territorial govern
ment. In snch a case there could not be tho
slightest doubt of what the deoision of the su
preme court would be. He did not know what
the Jower house of the legislature might do.
but he believed that the senate could not be
depended upon to undertake any general legis
lation. If this Question were submitted to a
vote of the people at an eleotion for this pur
pose, and at which state officers are chosen, and
the decision is in favor of repea'ing and nullify*
ing the seotion under consideration, then he
wonld stand by the people. He would go that
far in a revolution which seemed to be the only
thing left us. Mr. Haines then examined the
position in which the proposed action wonld
place many of the state officers, for, as he was
informed, fifteen memb is of tbls government
were members ot the territorial government. If
we pass the majority report, they will have to
choose thls day whom they will serve. They can*
not servo two masters. We need them in this
organisation. We need every man to be w« has
and to help us in this great struggle.

Mr. Owen said:
The committee of nine of this convention, all
lawyers, bad unanimously concluded to repeal
this section. If the senate won't aot, *on'6 do
anything, as the aentlemen snggesUk let them
take the responsibility. We want to" get out of
the way. Our attorney geucral said at the com
mittee meeting last night: *T have been with
the statehood movement from its inception in
the Huro* wigwam clear down to this meeting.
We ve .beaten Campbell every time, aiid now
we ve brought up in the. graveyard. Now I am
ready for a change of jbase, ready to do some
thing, and if. we in doing so' brmg up~in the
