The free Ir.ule 1 biinxiats of New York State are in a quandary as to the 'election of a suitable standard bearer in the next presidential election. They repinliate Tilileu as not having nerve • nough, aud Gen. Hancock, it is said, repudiates them. ! j ! ' Thomas Egan, of Sioux Palis, D. T., who mtmlered his wife in a brutal man lier. last September, was hung last Fri day. The execution was as barbarous as the murder, the rope breaking twice iimler tue man's weight. It was the Jirsi judicial hanging tliat ever occured in that territory, an«l nnless the local Jack Ketch improves in his handiwork, lie himself, ought to he subjected to the job of testing the strength of hempen cord. Modern science is terribly destruc tive of popular notion«. It lias gen • rally been supposed that the size of a man's brain was in du»*, proportion to his intellectual ability. But a man died on the fitb inst, in Colorado, who bail the largest brain of any man in America— anil yet he was nothing but a Leadvill« -ainbler. Ills brain weighe«l sixty-two iik! a quarter ounces, lieing eiglitecn and i hree-quarter ounces heavier than that • if Daniel Webster. It may yet turn out that tin* possession <>f a reasonable amount <>f brains is not windy ineom patiMe with the «s-iaipationof an editor. ; ; i ! i ; , , W'liile Washington Territory is .-«.-ek ing :i*lmission to the I'nion as a State, ami Dakota is preparing for a division of h«*r ari-a, Cusler County is also arrang ing for a separation into two counties. The present unwieldy arrangement will probably la* terminate«! bv the next legislature. Now that the great hulk of Hie |K>pulatioii is rapidly concentrating iu the western en«l of tlu* County, the grow ing remoteness «>f the County seat is bi'coining • nuire and more bitr«leti -ouie t<» th«' ] »eoplc, an« l th»* ailmiuistm tion of justice, at that distance, more ex pensive than sei'tns to be justified by the quality of the article obtained. The reasons Imaring for «livisiotï are immer ..us, ami we do not lielicvc there will he am settle«! opposition to tin* measure. Meanwhile, however, our citizens must »»car in mind that by the new apportion ment which the Governor will «lonhtless -.«»on announce, Custer < ounty w ill pro bably lie entitled to tvv«» representatives in next w int»*r's Legislature, and they must see that in selecting « undulates for those positions, the choice is made of men who favor the separation. There was a lively «scene in a court in Maiden a coupl-i of weeks ag<». The new population, attracted by the fame ,,f the Maginnis nÿ.nes, is not in all res pects, a law ajrfditig community. On the «»ecasion referred to, Pat Maloney, a former Miles City Christian, hut then a Meagher County deputy sheriff', had arrested a rough named Jack Hawkes for highway robbery, or some other tri fling breach of order. Hawkes was hauled in before Judge McPartlin, who tjrdere<l Maloney to disarm the prison er. The deputy sheriff, drawing a 45 caliber Colt's revolver, began skirmish ius gingerly fcround the court room, fol lowed steadily by the muzzle of Ilawkcs' pistol, which gyrated ominous ly at full cock, with steady aim at his person. Suddenly, the court wearied at lim delay, drew from a side pocket a six shooter witli a prodigiously long barrel, and aiming it full at Hawkes' head, thundered out, "Hold up your hands, you scoundrel, or I'll send you to hea ven across lots.". He did not use the words scoundrel or heaven, but tlicv will answer our .purposes better than his precise language. Hawkes recognized the situation, and surrendered without further ndo. We believe tlie upshot of his examination was that hc was relcae cd on trifling bail, while the complain ing witness, who was the person who had been robbed, was committed to jail to be detained as a witness until the full term of court.
