Van Antwerp, the Washington correspondent of the Minneapolis Jour nal, sends his paper this interesting piece of -political news: "It is asserted by those who ought to be well posted that Mr. Bryan has been fomenting strife between the two wings of the democracy in New York for a purpose. It is very well understood by all in any way conversant in political affairs that Mr, Croker intends to use all of his great power in the interest of an anti-Bryan delegation to the demo cratic national convention. If he suc ceeds, as he probably will, there will be seventy-two votes from New York opposed to the renomination of the 16 to I candidate. Seventy-two votes will have an important bearing upon the action of the convention, especially if the two-thirds rule is adhered to. "It is understood to he the purpose of the Bryan men to send a contesting delegation to the convention, and this contesting delegation can be seated by a majority vote. It will be recalled that there were several such contests in the Chicago convention of 1896, which resulted in giving the seats to the sil verites. If Bryan can keep up the con troversy between the two factions of the deriocratic party in New York, known as the ten-dollar men and the one-dollar men. during the next twelve months, there will be little difficulty in carrying out this scheme. It follows, then, that if the Bryanites can succeed in capturing a majority of the delegates from the other states they will be able to override the will of the majority of the New York organization and to seat seventy-two men favorable to the re iteration of the principles set forth in the democratic platform of 1896. The scheme is a pretty one and Bryan un doubtedly has friends enough through out the state to insure its success, pro vided, of course, that he is able to hold together enough of his friends through out the country generally to give him a majority of the cbnvention to start with." It was the north side of Billings which elected a south side mayor yes terday, but the interests of the city will not suffer on that account. Billings has now reached that point in its de velopment where both sides are sure to prosper and the rivalry that has existed between the two sections of the city should be buried forever. A good mayor and boird of aldermen have been elected and there is no doubt that they will pull together for the material growth of Billings as a whole. W. B. George has not lost his cun ning in local politics, even though he was defeated last fall. He gets the credit for electing both the mayor and city treasurer; he gets into business by taking charge of the Sperry stock, pur chased by Yegen Bros., and he also won a watch on a wager. Yesterday was sure a big day for Mr. George, who, besides accomplishing what is enumerated above, also "got even" for certain work done against him at the last election. The robbins have appeared, this is a warm bright day and spring appears to have at last arrived. The robbins, however, are provided with overcoats and arctics as a precaution and a howl ing blizzard is liable to be in progress before the ink on this type can dry. There's no telling what freaks the weather will play this season, but we venture the guess that the backbone of winter is now badly bent, anyhow. Marshal Jack Bond, who has given universal satisfaction during the short time be has held the position, deserves reappointment at the hands of the new City administration. He is the right man in the right place and Mayor-elect Yegen will make a mistake if he con. templates making a change in thl marshalship. One of the crying needs of this city ii e-arve the street crossings raised or the grade lowered, so that pedestrians wil bot be compelled to wade ankle deep ii mud for' several months in the year Mayon eleot Yegen can popularize hi tion by giving this matte sidiate attention. T:eD news comes from the ~s~ J e has re FBi pineos are discouraged and ready to surrender. Now if Senator Hoar of Ma bchusetts can be prevailed upon to accept .the situation, it is confidently believed that the end of the war is in sight. Mayor Smith feels. that he has fought a good fight and given the city a sewer age system aganist which there can be no kick and which cost less than the estimate. Judge Matheson feels like his light was bid under a bushel when he re alizes that he was beaten only six votes. Dr. Rinehart says he is classed among those who also ran. HOTEL ARRIVALS. At the Grand.

The purchaser gets the entire ticket with the exception of a contradt governing the return passage. This goes by mail to the agent at destination of the going trip. The ticket holder must call for his contract and have it attached to his coupons before the re turn portion is good for passage. This attachment is not made until the agent has satisfied himself that the person ap plying is entitled to it. As the return portion must be used at once, there is no opportunity of manipulation by brokers. A legislative committee, appointed to investigate to what extent free railroad transportation was used by public offi eials of Nebraska, has reported that many state officials, including the sec retary of state and attorney general, habitually ride on passes, but they could not find that these officials, with the exception of the oil inspector, charged the state mileage for their free trips. Testimony was reported show ing that John F. Cornell, the auditor of public accounts, had during the past two years, for the use of himself, friends and relatives, transportation ag gregating in value the sum of $20,000; that special trains have been furnished in some instances to officials without charge, for the use of themselves, their friends and families; that the accoan inodations furnished were all that any person could desire, not only for travel in Nebraska, but also in South Dakota; and that the trips taken were not on business connected with the state, but simply pleasure-junket trips. The Northern Pacific has commenced extensive alterations in its yard in Mis soula with a view of putting in a num ber of new tracks, which are necessary on account of increased business. R. A. Haynes of Edgemont, auditor for this division of the Burlington rail road, made his monthly visit to Bill ings Saturday to put his 0. K. on the books. He left yesterday to work to ward home. Wm. Galvin came down from Helena Sunday and was kept busy yesterday auditing the Northern Pacific railroad buniness. He found everything in tip, top shape.

Maring, who held the strings as aot ing agent, has resumed his cashiershir at the freight office. Assistant General Superintendent G. W. Rhoades of Lincoln, Master Me chanic J. P.
