LAMES I. MILLS, EDITOR AND PUBLISHER. The Official Papr of Der wLoe County ENTauED IN TEw DEER LoDGo , MONTANA, Posrorrxwz Fon TaaxarlMesio As SEcoND OLAS MAIL MATTER. Tnn "other fellows" can go fishing this time. MoxTAxA does have a cyclone once in a while. FREE wool couldn't be pulled over the eyes of Montana. A PUBLIC ofmice is a heap of worry. Grover Cleveland. FanEE TRAD has the odor of defunctive ness about it. Bury it. CLAoTrr and Carter. C seems to be a lucky letter for the Republicans. You can't veto the will of the people, Grover, if you do that of Congress. Selab. BAAvRanEAD and Lewis and Clarke counties elected every man on the Republi can tickets. Wu take off our hat to the Deet Lodge county Republican ticket. It won the day gloriously. SOMEROW the Democratic argument that free wool and Mexican lead is a blessing in disguise, got all mussed up last Tuesday. Tns Democratic party made all the mis. takes this year, and even Cleveland had his Burchard in the person of Mintster West. Tn: ",vest pocket" vote in Montana was tremendous, and the vest wasn't made of "free wool," either. "Mary had a little lamb." CONGRATULATIONS to you, Thbs. H. Car. ter. You were hard to get started, but how like the old Harry you ran after you got a going. Tai total debt of the United States, less cash in Treasury, Nov. 1st, was $1,187,290, 0836. The decrease for October is estimated at $4,000,000. IT iI fair to say the Republicans are al most as much amazed at the result as the Democrats. They hoped to win, but did'nt think of making it a Waterloo. Ir there isn't "red paint" enough to go a around, the mines of America will furnish I "red lead" enough at the usual tariff rate to I add to the universal crimson. I Ma. CABrEr's own speeches helped him I most, but his legion of orators did him t splendid service in the campaign. He made t fine addresses and was ably supported. a CLEVELAND doubtless believes now that a no President should be a candidate for a second term. The people certainly made up a their mind that way, so far as he was con- d cerned. Louis HEaSEPIELD is born to good luck. a He was treasurer of the Territorial Exeeu. y tive Committee when Clagett was elected, n and is chairman of the same committee this a campaign. o A DEMOCRAT says: "Buckner, of Kean- p taucky, when once asked the cause of his de. It feat replied: "Well, they say it was on ac. It count of my religion in this world, and I ex. Pr pect I will be damned in the next world for I1 not having any." oi of DEMOCRATS can take comfort from the it fact that the intention of the Republicans sc was not as disastrous as the event turned tb out. The victory for Carter was only pro- Ie posed to be decisive-not annihilative. The in mahebine ran away with itself. pl IT is believed now the accident to the Ciar's train was caused by a defective track. The bodies of 42 victims have been recover ed. The director of the Caucasian system of railroads, M. Alennikoff, suicided Friday, leaving a letter addressed to the Czar. TxH election of Harrison and Carter means statehood for Montana as soon as a Republican majority is secured in the House. And it means Montanians for Montana politieal offiees after March 4th next, any how., Home Rule is pretty good itself. WE have'nt heard any cry of "fraud" con cerning the Montana election. That will do to howl at a zephyr, but it is not worth while muttering It at a hurricane. As Dr. Mitchell says, "It was'nt an election, it was a political cyclone that struck Montana Tuesday." THE Billings Gazette offers $100 reward for the arrest and conviction of the murderer of Assessor Lewis Sweet. This is the first Instance we recollect of in Montana of a newspaper ofering a reward for the appre hension of a felon. It Is creditable to the Gazette. CALL in that $60,000,000 loaned to pet banks without interest, Mr. Secretary Fair child. You will have to account for the money in the Treasury on the 4th of next March, and we trust your cash and accounts will show up as the Republican's did after twenty-four years of gigantic business, with every account correct and every penny on band. THEir was good and effective work done by the daily Republican press of Montana in the recent campaign. The Record, Inter Mountain, Herald, Item and Leader were potent factors in the campaign, and the weekly Avant Courier, Enterprise, Yellowo stone Journal and mun, each did good ser vice. It is fair to say the Republicans had the best of the argument, and it is just as fair to say the Montana Republican press didn't overlook many points. JoHx J. KIxo comes through the cyclone for Assessor unscathed. He, somehow, got lots of Republican votes all over the county. He has been a good Assessor, but bhis strength at the polls was one of the marvels of the marvelous day. Mr. Kennon, whom it was believed was Invincible for Treasurer, is pretty close to Mr. Cole man. MiEs Wolfe, for School Superinten. dent, had no opposition. Aside from these the Republicans carry Deer Lodge county from top to bottom of the ticket. Owing to remote precincts, wrecks, change of time and delayed malls we cannot give the com plete returns with this issue, but the above l we think presents the general result. "PROTECTION to American industries" t were the magic words that won the fight. t The people have been true to their own in-. terests. They put away the delusion of a name that led to ruin and slew the monster of free trade as he emerged from his lair. They have done wisely. The Mills bill is consigned to the limbo of legislative abor. tions, and the Senate bill readjusting the tariffand internal revenue to the conditions I of the times, will remit the tax on our own E products, and put the shield of protection 1 between well paid American labor and the ill paid labor of foreign countries. On that depends happiness and plenty In the homes of millions, and the people have decreed wisely. NATIONAL VICTOR Y ONCE MORE. Victory ones more. Four yearsm ag an unfortunate dinner, an element believlug "I am holler than thou," and the alliterative babble of a foolish man, wrested from the Republican party the ;power It had held for twenty-four years, andgave it over tothe Democracy. In the history of that quarter century It had emblaoned on its baenna the most glorious deed$ that ever a poltical party achieved sincetime began. But it bad grown great, and in its greatness, that was human enough to have its weaknesses, there were followings aster false gods, and when the bugles sounded the assembly, the line of battle had its weak point and was broken. Perhaps it needed the chastening. But there were not ungrounded apprehensiona that, once entrenched in power and office, its old foe might not be dislodged until in long lapse of years the most of those who had been in and of it, the old guard to whom its history and organization and glories were part of their lives, had laid them down and died and the milhennial dawn of its restoration brighten only in the eyes of a later generation. Such had been the history of parties; such might be that of the Republican. But though the chastening was heavy it did not long endure. In the very body of Democratic triumph was the disease of which it should die. Mr. .leveland thought be saw In the 153 electoral votes of the Southern States, in the 30 of New York and 9 of New Jersey the 198 votes of the 201 necessary to re elect him. And so the Mills bill, in fa'or of the South and of New York City, whose importations would be increased by a low tariff, was devised in their interest, New Jersey relied on for Democracy and a Prohibition defection, and Allen G. Tbur man put on to get the 3 votes of California or the 15 of Indiana. Not all of these things availed. The tendency of the Mills bill and leading Democrats and their journals to free trade alarmed the great industrial masses to the peril, and this with the general bad policy of the administration, the re nunciation of the Independent and Prohibl tion delusions by many who had been led astray, have been sufficient to bring the most of the old party under the banner again, add tens of thousands to the Republican ranks and drive the Democracy from their en trencbments at the first charge. The ene my boastfully said the Republican party, having accomplished every purpose it had undertaken, had fulfilled its mission and must die; and thereupon the enemy imme diately set to work to prepare an issue that roused all the vitalities of the party, that came to its ears as the challenge of a foe, and rising in its might the Republican party has rushed upon the free trade heresy and its projenitor and crushed the Democratic I party and its only begotten child. The peo. ple of these United States have seen the Democratic party is not safe to trust with the government even while the Republican takes a rest. Republicans have seen it is I not safe for it to take a rest. Harrison and Morton are elected. It will resume business I at the old stand on the 4th of next March to I stay. There will never be a "solid South" I again. Its great resources will develop un der the touch of Industry, capital and enter p-ise, a new element will be infused into it, c and a half dozen Southern States will four I years hence give their electoral votes to the I nominee whose standard Is emblazoned "For t a Protective Tariff." It is safe to say that t nominee will not be a Democrat. c And now, thankful in heart that the Re- I publican party is restored to power; assert- . lig after the election our sincerity of bellef t 1C. in every word we uttered during the cam. z. paign, we extend to Democrats and Repub br licans alike our most hearty congratulations on the result. We believe no possible policy of evil so great as free trade could fall upon he this country, and that the Mills-Cleveland os scheme was the entering wedge to that policy id that once driven by an endorsement of the ý- electors could never have been stopped until ie Irretrlevable injury had been done the peo pie of these United States. Our peace, welfare and prosperity depend very greatly 1A upon the well being, the happiness, educa .* tion and contentment of the wage-working r masses of our people. These things cannot mI be secured unless they receive fair compen F, sation for their labor. If the imported pro. ducts of cheap labor are thrown upon our markets in even competition with the pro tr ducts of our workmen low wages with all a their train of evils must inevitably result. e' The Republican party has premised this 'a shall not happen if it can prevent it. It has promised us home rule while a territory, and Statehood as soon as it can confer it. It has promised us favor of a bi-metallic cur. rency. It has promised protection to our 0 wool and lead Industries, the retention of h our public lands for homesteads, and the . restoration to the public domain of all un Searned railroad lands. We are confident that in none of these things will it disap. point us, and we have elected a gentleman to represent Montana in Washington who r has the ability, energy and will to see that these promises are not forgotten. We could not have written thus had Mr. Cleveland or Mr. Clark been elected, for the latter could not have opposed the policy of his party, and the former and his platform are no good. He has been brought to bar by the citizens of the United States in an extraordinarily I prosperous year, the most favorable condi. tions for an incumbent, with all the prece dents in favor of a second term for a satis factory executive, and his further services are dispensed with. The verdict suits us. May there not again be a national adminis. tration so hostile to Montana as that which has'been in power at Washington the past forty months. Hail the glad day when it shall vacate to Harrison and Morton. JUST in the midst of the magnificent I victory, we take time to say that many ex cellent gentlemen in Montana are now over whelmed with defeat. They feel badly ct c up. We have been there many a time, and , know just how they feel. Mr. Clark repre sented a bad cause and had to stand the con sequences. He has hosts of friends who b appreciate his many excellent qualities, who , have a high personal regard for him and wish it had been some one else who had led It the forces of the enemy. Col. Sanders, than whom the Republicans of Montana never had a worthier leader, two years ago went down in defeat, when, if the people of Mon tans had been true to themselves as they C have now, he would have been elected. There are many good men on the county ticket defeated. Barbecues, sophistries and "The Issues of the Day" were too much for them. They were the victims of a bad cause. We trust they will see the error of their ways. The Republican party is too great It and grand an organization to exult over per- B sonal discomfiture, and now, as ever, wel- m comes to its ranks those of other past ailis- or tions who see the true light at last and wish F to join the greatest and grandest political C organization the world ever saw.

A Complete Political Revolution in Montana. The most astounding thing that ever hap. apened in Montana was the majority by I which Thos. H. Carter, Republican candi date, was elected Delegate for Montana. His most sanguine friends, candidates, com mittees and newspaper people as well as the public generally, are overwhelmed with amazement. The man who on Tuesday morning would have declared such a result possible would have been adjudged fit for a lunatic asylum. It is the first time that ubiquitous nuisance who says: "Didn't I tell you so?" has been knocked clean out. Just think of it-an estimated majority of 4,500 for Carter over Clark In this Terri. tory that has gone Democratic for 16 years. a "Earthquake," "cyclone," "whirlwind," I "landslide," "cataclysm" and every other word used to illustrate it, falls somehow to I express the idea. It was a complete political revolution, and the old things had passed away and the new conditions came quietly as the day succeeds the night. It is a whole lot better as it is, and Mr. Carter probably is, as he ought to be, a very glad and grate ful man. Nobody seems yet to fully com- n prehend how It happened. The idea of g Carter getting 1,200 to 1,400 majority In f Silver Bow county, while the local ticket S barely wins, is marvelous, while the result S in this county is scarcely less astonishing. We are told by gentlemen from Butte there were 2,500 men In that city who did not vote. ti They were waiting for "boodle" until the ia hour passed six. If there was none used by Mr. Clark's friends it is creditable. But boodlers"would have had a lively time evad. 8, lug the 125 "outlooks" the'Republicans had in the field. We believe that little if any money was used in the campaign, except what would be considered for legitimate expenditure. The large employers of men generally appear to have not exercised any undue influence over their employe's, but to have rightly allowed them to vote as they desired. The question of protection to American industries had been thoroughly expounded by Mr. Carter and a cloud of able assistants and the press to the people of Montana and the responsi bilty of their action and its effects impressed upon them. From these convictions, enter tained and firmly believed in by thousands who had seen the evil effects of free trade beyond the seas, and who diligently aided in enlightening others, no sophistries of the opposition press or speakers could swerve them, and, at the polls, hundreds of men who never voted other than a Demo cratic ticket before, recorded their condem. nation of the free trade heresy by voting for Thos. H. Carter. There was a large "vest pocket" vote cast In Montana. This we take to have been the underlying fact that pro duced. the result, although Mr. Carter's magnificent campaign, the splendid im pression he mes" upon all who heard him, the excellent tu. nag ment of the executive committee, and bib thorough vindication against all charges were potent auxilliarles. Beside a!l this, Montana has been for six years a Republican Territory on a fair ex. pression of its qualified electors. The Territory should be grateful that it has secured the services of as able, indus. trious and efficient a gentleman as Mr. Car ter to represent her in Congress. We do not believe hbe will serve out his term as Dele gate, or that the legislators will theirs, even if county officers do. In all reasonable probability, it it is the will of the people of this Territory, Montana will be admitted as a State before his term at least will expire, and with admission will come a new legisla tive eleetion and new laws. The terms of county officers may be continued until the next regular election. To achbleve that purpose we are assured Mr. Carter will bend every energy, and we are much-mistaken if his service shall not commend him to yet higher honors from the people of Montana. HARRISON HAS IT SAPE. Cleveland Lacks Eleven Votes if He Carries California and Connecticut. Special to the Inter-Mountain, NEW YORK, Nov. 8.-General Harrison's majority in the electoral college is estimated at from 20 to 34. The returns, with the re sult in Connecticut and California still in doubt, give Harrison 221 and Cleveland 166. Indiana is safe for the Republicans by at least 6,000 plurality, and even if Cleveland carries both Connecticut and California, it cannot affect the result, as in that case he would only have 190 votes. The latest advices Indicate that Connecti cut has gone Democratic by a small plurality, but there is nothing sure about it. The re sult hinges on a few votes, which, it is claimed, were erroneously credited to Cleve land, and the authorities are now busy re counting the votes. THE ANACONDA VOTE. Carter's Majority in the County Estimated at 980. Special to the New North-West. ANACONDA, Nov. 8, 4:30 p. m.-Anaconda city precincts give a total vote of 1,291. Car ter receives 178 majority, Thompson 9 ma jority. Joslyn receives 78 majority over Robinson and C. H. Moore 112 majority over Rodgers; Morse receives 94 majority, Boar man 174 majority, Ed. Moore 204 majority over McMaster, Kennon 33 majority, and Furay 41 majority over Aspling for County Clerk. Carter's majority, so far as heard from in this county, including Anaconda, Granite and Philipsburg, is 980. -- v _ Those "Whalers" All Right. SAN FB. cseco, Nov. 2.-The steamer Brasher arrived from the Arctic this after noon and brought information that the thir teen whalers, with their crews of 500 men, which were caught in the ice pack the last of September, are safe. October 2d, after the vessels had been imprisoned nine days, a gale sprungupand the ice began to break. The whaling captains took the first opportu nity to release the vessels, and in a day or two all were safely out. THE NATIONAL VICTORY. Harrison and Morton Trl.mpheatly Meos ted, and a Probable MJority in the House. NEW Yomx, Nov.' .-Senator Quay, Chair man of the Republican National Committee, authorizes the following statement: "The Republicans on Tuesday carried, by In creased majorities, all the States that were married for Blaine in 1884, and, in addition, have carried New York by a plurality of 15,000 and Indiana by a plurality of from 4,000 to 6,000. West Virginia is in doubt. Gen. Harrison's election is assured." NEw YoRK, Nov. 7.-The Sun of tbis morning will say that Harrison has 11,7602 plurality in New York State, and that Hill has 18,952. It says the next House of Representatives will be so evenly divided between the parties that an official count will be necessary to de cide which is in the majority. Its figures shbow that Indiana gives Harrison a plurality of about 7,000. Connecticunt's vote is Deme ocratic by 194. Thurman was asked Wednesday: "Y'lu give up the entire election, then ?" "I .# be answered; "we are defeated." NEW YORK, Nov. 6.-The Tribune bulle tin says the next House of Representatives will be Republican, by 20 to 25. NEW YORK, Nov. 7.-The Evening Sur says: "Latest, dispatches indicate that the election of Harrison is assured beyond ques .ion. Corrected returns received from coun ties in the State so far increase Harrison's plurality to 10,000." ALBANY, Nov. 7.-The Evening Journal estimates a plurality of 12,000 for Harrison and 7,000 for Hill in, New York State. Re publicans gain nine Assemblymen. The Congressional delegation is unchanged in political proportion. .. . . ,, 1 I." "- . . . d THE RESULT BY 8STATES. A Sweeping Victory all Along the Line. y NEW YORK.

The Republicans claim the State by 70,. 000 for Harrison, and 65,000 on entire State ticket. Legislature almost solidly Republi can. The Sunflower State Is all right. Cleveland Gives it Up. WASHINGTON, Nov. 8.-The Post, the ad ministration organ, this morning prints the following: "The President takes the resulti calmly and philosophically. He talks quite freely about the returns and the increased Republican vote, but expressed not the slightest regret 'in the world at any action he had taken during his administration. He is willing to admit that his position on the tariff and the decided stand he took in favor of revenue reduction may have lost him a good many votes, but still maintains if it were to do over again he would follow the dictates of his convictions. The President received no telegrams from the National Democratic Committee until late last night. From what he has heard, however, he con cedes he is defeated. He attributes his de feat to no one in particular, and says that Hill and Tammany Hall treated him with perfect fairness, and he has no fault to find at all." The I. 8. C. C. After Railroads. WASHINGTON, Nov. 1.-A letter has been sent by direction of the inter-state corn meree commission to the railroad and tele-. graph companies affected by the act of plac- I ing the telegraph lines of railroads all of I which received government aid under the I control of the commission, calling their at. I tention to the fact they have not complied I with the provisions of act requiring them to file with the inter state commerce commis. sion copies of their contracts and certain other information relative to the use of these telegraph lines. TuI Republican Territorial Central Com- i mittee, consisting of Louis H. Hersbfield, chairman, E. D. Weed, secretary, and T. C. r Power, treasurer, handled the campaign r with vim, vigor and ability. If they over- I looked any points they have not yet been e discovered. They fought fair and square, 1 but they fought bard, and swept the enemy's a line from flank to center. a PARTIAL RETURNS OF THE VOTE OF DEER LODGE COUNTY, M.T.

And as e we return thanks for all the blessings which we have received from the hands of our Heavenly Father, let us not forget that He has enjoined upon us charity, and upon this day of thanksgiving let us generously re . member the poor and needy so that our a tribute of praise and gratitude may be ac t' ceptable in the sight of the Lord.

S POMONA, Cal., Nov. 3.-Notwithstanding diligent work by detectives, assisted by every Democrat in Pomona and hints from the Democratic State Committee, the secret of the Murchison's letter, has been faithfully kept until to-day, and then the disclosure was made in the Pomona Progress, whose editor has the authority to make the author ship public. The letter to Minister West was signed by Charles F. Murchison, was written here by a young English-Canadian, James Cosner. He had made his home in Pomona for seyen years, and was natural. ized last April at Los Angeles. In this cam. paign he was one of the first to declare for Harrison, while his two cousins, Andrew and George Wilson, who have also been re cently naturalized, were undecided whether to vote for Cleveland or Harrison. He said to a Tribune correspondent to-day that during a beated argument with his Dem ocratic cousins and an Irishman last August on Cleveland's attitude toward Great Britian the thought suggested itself to him to write to Sir Charles Toupper and get his private opinion concerning Cleveland's attitude on the fishery question. He talked with two Republican Irishmen and former Democrats, F. G. Haley and Patrick C. Tanner, both lawyers, on the subject, and they suggested that if an opinion favorable to Cleveland could be obtained from Tupper, and also from Minister West, and could be spread at the proper time in the campaign, it would be another Morey letter sensation and be of inestimable benefit to Harrison. The name of Charles F. Murchison was signed to the letter to West because that is the name of English relatives of Cosner. Mr. Cosner admits the authorship of the Murchison let. I ter to-day, but does not admit writing letters to Fish and Tupper, although he had a hand in their composition. He says he new when he received the letter from West that its I pub;ication would make a sensation, but he i had no idea it would result so disastrously J to that gentleman's diplomatic career, and he regrets now that he helped to get West i into asuch a scrape. - - -- . _..,•, . as GEORGE FRANCIS TRAIN. apt A Pathetic Story Anent the Yellow Fever rk Scourge. ed George Franeis Train made a speech in of New York a few evenings since, in which he [isaid: hb When two years old my parents moved to he New Orleans. In 1833, when I was four e- years old, the great fever raged. This ept or demic at Jacksonville seems ridiculous in comparison. Only 300 have died there, while 300 died every day at Memphis, and he New Orleans was worse. I was only four at years old, but I remember they had no cof at fins at New Orleans, no gravestones, no hearses, but every day a great cart came lumbering down the street and a hoarse cry tb would resound: "Awho-o-o! bring out a, your dead!" Then my little sister Lolan e died. They put her in a little pine box. Then my sister Ellen died, as frail a little flower as ever bloomed. That child's face e has never left my memory, and when she d was put in the box I waited wonderingly for n the call, "Bring out your dead!" The water splashed up into the wagon in the graveyard. Then my dear old mother fol h lowed, and then my nurse. My father then r received a letter from my grandmother, e "For God's sake, send one of the family SNorth before they are all dead. Can't you send George Francis to me, and save a rem. - nant of our race?" A tag was then fastened r to me marked: "John Clark, Boston. Take good care of the little fellow. They are all dead but bim." I was put on a steamer and I floated down the Mississippi, up the Gulf e stream to Boston, and I seem to be floating d still. Our family of eleven died in the epi demic. John Guy Vassar's Will.

Traders Report Him Alive a Year Ago. ZANZItaI, Nov. 2.-Couriers from Ta. bora bring direct news from the Stanley ex pedition, a portion of which was met at the end of November, 1887, by Arabs trading between Lakes Victoria Nyanza and Neigne and Tabora. The Arabs met Stanley's rear guard at a point west of Albert Nyanza, I southeast of Zanga. The Arabs did not see Stanley. The detachment seen consisted of thirty men. They stated Stanley was two days ahead. The expedition had suffered greatly on the march through a thick forest, where it was Impossible to advance more than a mile and a quarter daily. They had also suffered in the marshes, where many had disappeared or died. Forty were drown. ed in crossing a great river flowing from east to west. One white man had died. Stanley was obliged to fight some tribes that refused tosupply him with provisions. The rear guard, at the time it was met, had only been on the march five days after a halt of three weeks, due to the illness of Stanley, and.the great part of the escort who had been attacked with fever. The Arabs esti mate the total strength of the expedition, after all losses, at 250 men. The health of Stanley was then good. The rear guard, which consisted of natives of Zanzibar, stated that Stanley had decided he would no longer advance in a northeasterly direction but would strike toward the north, hoping to avoid the swamps. After getting a cer tain distance north he Intended to take an oblique line and go straight to Wadelal, whither it was thought he would arrive in 50 days, about the middle of January, 1888. The Arabs are of the opinion that the expe dition is still strong enough to reach Wade. lai. Ora nd A Strange Fancy for the Tragic. en NEW YORK, Nov. 2.-For the second time its within seven years a strangely solumn scene be was enacted in the room of the house of Mr. ly John Jaeger.

PITTSBURO, November 5.-Intelligence has just been received of the explosion of a j nitro-glycerine magizene near Shamokin, f Pa., twelve miles from here. Great dam I age was done to surrounding property. The magazine belonged to the Torpedo Company of Deleware. The explosion was terrific and was felt twenty.five miles away. It is supposed that the explosion was caused by a tramp through ignorance. There were between two and three tons of glycer. ins in the magazine. The earth was torn tip 1 for a distance of 500 yards, and trees a mile mile away were rent asunder. Many houses were wrecked. The residen. ces of George and William Wilson and Thomas McCoy, a hall a mile away, were completely shattered and the occupants I thrown through the windows, but not seri ously injured as far as it can be ascertained. r No one was killed, except possibly the n tramp.

I el The Keeley Motor a Fraud. th PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 2.-B. Le Van, the cr exert appointed by the Coust to examine the w; Keeley motor to determine whether or not it fo is a fraud, has reported to the Court that thl the generator shown him by Keeley was a no stationary structure, dependent upon the to manipulation of an operator, and could by we no possibility be made self operating. tu The Distress in Dakota Relieved. DEVIL'S LAKE, Dak., Nov. 1.-While the distress of the people here was not exagger ated, there was and is a feeling here that there was no occasion for appeal for foreign aid; a feeling that great injury would result to the place from the naked facts without explanation going out to the world. The car load of provisions and coal has arrived, and several car loads of wood are on the way. The Herald contribution is also available, and it is to be hoped there will be no further agitation of the subject. Just indignation is fell toward those who took advantage of this distress to foreclose mort. gages. Frosts are not unusual at that season of the year even in the middle States. The cotton and the sugar crops of the buth have several times been cut off by frost. In 1867 the people of the Southwestern part of Minm nesota were compelled to call upon the State for aid on account of injury to their -crops resulting from blight and rust, and later on, through grasshopper depredations, the State was compelled to furnish seed to a large portion of the new settlers. That Curious "Q." Affair. CHIcAGO, Nov. 1.--H. B. Stone has been appointed second vice president of the C., B. & Q. system. E. P. Ripley succeeds Mr. Stone as general manager of the C., B. & Q. east of the Missouri river. The change took effect to-day. In mentioning the changes the Times prints the following: "The stand taken by Mr. Stone on the laboring question is said to have had nothing to do in bringing about the present changes in his duties, as his course during the strike, whether prudent or imprudent, was sanctioned and perhaps to some extent directed, by persons higher in authority. At the same time, it is the belief of many disinterested persons t! at the change will have the effect of quieting the prejudices that exist in certain quarters on account of the attitude of the management during the strike and will, therefore, be beneficial to the company." There is some speculation as to whether Paul Morton will succeed Mr. Ripley in the position of traffic manager, or remain at the head of the freight department. This seems to be a question that is not yet definitely settled. Must Want Notoriety. er NEW YORK, Nov. 2.-There was an ex citing scene in the corridor of the Hoffman m House last night. About 6 o'clock Joe How. ard, a well known newspaper man, was ,i walking t3ward the door as Duncan B. Har rt rison entered. Mr. Harrison walked directly i up to Howard, seized him by the collar and d held him at arm's length a moment with one hand while with the other he drew from his overcoat pocket a dog whip and lashed r Howard's head and shoulders. When Har d rison first seized Howard the latter removed his glasses and made a pass at his assailant, but the blow was avoided. Harrison ad ministered a blow quickly with his whip. Harrison when questioned refused to say anything about the row other than that Howard had been warned of this. "He was told I would whip him at sight. IIe knew whit for, and I would do it over sagain, for he deserves it." The whole affair did not take a minute. Harrison left the Hoffman House, jumped into a carriage and was driven off. Harrison is a well known actor and is the brother of Maud Harrison, the well known comedienne. It is hinted that an interesting story lies be hind the assault. - - .b. -'Q -- . --- ... .. ! Lord Sackville to be Tenderly Treated. WASHINGTON, Nov. 3.-There is a well defined belief in diplomatic circles here that Lord Sackville West has been assured by I Lord Salisbury that his indiscretion will not I cause him to be dealt with severely by his home government, and, in fact, a statement was made to-day by a gentleman who is usually very well posted in diplomatic mat ters and who has been connected for years with the diplomatic service of the United States to the effect that Lord Sackville West will in all probability be sent to the mission in St. Petersburg. This gentleman said further that the cur rent stories relative to Lord Sackville's do mestic relations are unfounded, and that be was married in spite of the assertions to the contrary, but that his ; ife was an actress and consequently his Lordship lost caste in marrying her. ------ -.4-- -4F.--- ..... Cnly 19 Suicides at Monte Carlo. NICE, Nov. 1.-The gamblers' paradise, Monte Carlo Casino, is in a bad way. The annual meeting held to-day sLowed the profits reduced $150,000. The profits on roulette after pad ing expenres were over a million and a quarter dollars, but Tripot considers this a very poor business. Trente I et quarento proved unprofitable to the Casino, and another table will be abolished this winter. The number who suicided de. creased from 25 to 19. The latest victim was a young Russian lady, who lost all her fortune last week, and threw herself into the sea. The Prince of Monaco, who bas not visited his kingdom for several years, is to be brought down with great pomp in a week or two, to revive the decreasing for tunes of the principality.
