AMES II. MILLS, EDITOR AND PUBLISHER. The Official Paper of Deer Lodge County ENTERED IN THE DEER LODGE, MONTANA, PoIoTOFFICE FOn TRANssBhssION AS SECOND CLASS MAIL MATTIr. CARTan's majority now foota up over 5,000, and the official count will not mate rially change the figures. VITn Mantle conceded (be Speakership of the House, and Dr. C. K. Cole chosen Presi dent of the Council, won't the presiding officers of the next Legislature be a kind of Damon and Pythias pair P? THE Associated Press seems to have "fish ing" on the brain. Whenever President Cleveland indulged in that recreation it was deemed necessasy to telegraph the result if it was only a six-ounce trout. Now it has started in on Harrison, who caught a few bass the other day in a stream near home. Is this Idiocy going to prevail through an other administration P Mn. CLARK, and Delegate Toole, and Mr. Peck, of the Woolgrower, have been inter viewed by St. Paul papers in relation to the "why" of the recent result of the Montana election. Marcos Daly stripped the question I of all useless verbiage and correctly an swered the inquiry to the Mfining Journal by saying: "Montana is Republiean, my boy." Anything beyond that is a side Imue asid re lates only to greater or lesser majorities. THERE seems to be no doubt that in the q storm of last Sunday, shortly after 2 p. m., the iron collier steamer Allentown, of Phil- ' adelphia, struck on the seal ledge or the grampus, directly outside the port of Cohas. set, Mass., and went down with all on board. She was heard to signal distress with r her whistle at that hour, but the weather P was so thick nothing could be seen, and her a wreckage coming ashore tells too well her fate. t I The NEW NOTrr-WEST says that Mr. Car- f ter will advocate division and that he will come in for something better, should his services as Delegate terminate before the expiration of his terna, through the instru- 5 mentality of division. We hope that he will p advocate it, but we fear he will not. Mr. Carter, as Delegate, is acceptable in the eyes of the Helena ex-ofiee holders and State's h politllcans; but when he wishes to ascend I higher they will draw the line.-Bozenan I Chronicle. The Chronicle misinterprets us, or there a has been a misprint. We spoke of the b "division of Dakota," not of Montana; and of Mr. Carter's urging the "admission" of 14 Montana. . THE Billings Gazette of Nov. 22 says there d is now scarcely any probability of the Rocky t] Fork Railroad Company completing their c road within the period provided by the com- o pany's charter. Ex-Governor Hauser pre sented the matter to Northern Paclic men and it was thought until a day or two ago that arrangements would be made for going on with the work, but these hones seem now dispelled. The Gazette expresses its regret at the failure to complete the road and open b the Rocky Fork coal mines, and deplores the o fact the more in that thousands of dollars ti will be lost by the poorer classes in that P vicinity. t n Through misinformation we stated last d week that Alex. Mayhew had beaten W. H. sa Clagett for the Council in Idaho. We a notice from the official returns of Shoshone tI and Kootenal Counties, that R. Crane was o the Republican nominee against Mr. May- p boew, and Mr. Clagett does not seem to have p been a candidate at all. A gentleman, how- S ever from the east who heard him speak ' during the campaign, having traveled 59 ei miles through and over the Coeur d'Alene is moantains to do so, stated to Mr. O'Bannon, h that hearing that speech was worth twice S the travel. The lsilver of Clagett's tongue 81 never depreciates. h A FEW days ago a dinner was given in h New York to a large number of Republican orators of New York and other Eastern States, the invitation only extending to those who had been mentioned by the press as having "held their audiences spell bound." So, they called themselves, or somebody t else called them, "'the Republican Spell Binders." They have now formed a perma nent organiation, elected Chauney M. De. pew President, Col. Elliott Shepherd, Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, Chas. Foster, Maj. McKin- tl ley and Gov. Dillingham, Vies Presidents, 1 and will probably have fun and turtle soup together annually. Whats the matter with t Montana being represented? It wouldn't be a a bad idea for Delegate-elect Carter to recommend one or more of his eloquent c "spell.binders" for membership. sa*rc...uuuoa jur usiuluursuBp. THE editor of the Greenville, S. C., News, himself satisfied the policy of the Harrison administration will be conservative, wrote it would encourage Southern Commercial Interests if he would make some general as- 1 surance of a conservative course toward the South. General Harrison replied that be a was not ready yet to make public utterances on public questions, but he thought when Is the surprise and dissapolntment, of some of the people of the South over the national result has passed away, they will be surpris. i ed, as he i, that they should have imputed to him unfriendliness to the South. The polleles in legislation advised by the re. 2 publican party, he believes wholesome for 2 the whole country, and if those who, in their hest, believe with us on these ques. tions, would set with us, other questions which give them local concern would set tile themselves. HARRISON ON THE SOUTH. Anxious for the General Good of the Whole a American People. H MEMPHIS, TrNx., Nov. 19.-A few days iei ago Col. J. W. Jefferson, a prominent busi ness man and planter, who commanded a joi Michigan regtment during the war, wrote to 11 President elect Harrison, asking him to indi. oc cate, so far as he might properly do so, the probable policy of his administration to. Cc wards the South. The following answer Be was received and was made public yester- M day: 1s1 1.DIANAPOLI8, IND., Nov. 14.-To. Col.. J. W. Jefferson: My Dear Sir: Your kind st letter of Nov. 9 has been received, and I am glad to know that the result of the election brought atisfaction to an army comrade liv ing in the South. I notice what you say about the situation there, and mnure you that I appreciate it gravely and have the of most sincere desire to be well informed, both as to the men and affairs in the South. I do most sincerely desire to promote the general the good of our whole people, without reference see to State lines, and I shall be glad to have the ser friendly advice and co-operation of the law- Kr abiding and conservative people of all the States. Yours truly, It BEaJAxIN HARaISON. wit nui - Death of Gen. Sherman's Wife. be. Nuw YonK, Nov. 28.-Mrs. General wil William T. Sherman died at 10 o'clock, Th this morning, at her residence, 75 West wh Seventy-first street. Mrs. Sherman slept to quietly during short periods, last night, but tor at 8 o'clock, this morning, It become ap- ace parent that she could live but a few hours. Tb General Sherman was notified; he and the be childrena, who live at home, and sachael, is f Lizzsle and Teenmseb, were at the bed side for when Mrs. Sherman breathed her last. The Gel body will be sent to St. Louis for interment, Jer Saturday afternoon. Art PBOPOUGD CONSTITUTIONAL CHANGES emDe rt~rpapers and those of the lade pendeds type, whose Inflenee is almot Sinvariably thrown in favor of Democracy, are now generally advocating the extension of the Presidential term to six years or more and limitation to one term. A msa- I ber of them also advocate the abolitido of I the Electoral College with the systel of choosing Electors by States, sad substitut ing therefor a direct vote by the people for President. The business depression, tihe vast amount of time and nmoney consumed by the people during Presidential eam paigns, and the tension on governmental stability, are cited as strong reasons for less frequent Presidential elections, while the subordinatiob of the public service and pub lie interests to the ambitions of a Presiden tial candidate to succeed himself, of which we have had a vivid exemplification by I President Cleveland, are considerations of i some moment bearing on the question of I eligibility to re-election. The desire for a second term seems to grow Irresistibly on a many Presidents-Jackson, and we believe, I Lincoln, as well as Cleveland, being among I those who had declared against being a can- I didate for a second term, and yet subse- t quently aspiring thereto. Whether for an endorsement of their policy, or love of the I place, or desire to carry through measures t in progress, is Immaterial-it seems to be a prevailing desire and one that can only be I suppressed by an amendment to the consti- i tution limiting incumbency to one term, and extending the duration of that term if so I desired. As a sequence of this the terms of all appointees of the President would nat- f urally be extended to six years, and the a question arises if we would not be drifting I away from the fundamental idea of govern- 1 ment by the people and a frequent judgment I by them upon the acts of those they have t directly and indirectly placed in power, to- t ward life tenures and irresponsibility to the a really sovereign power which is in the peo- i ple, and to whom their servants should r account. Six years is too long for bad ad- c ministration: four years of good adminis- I tration may well be endorsed and extended. I But the days of accounting should not be too I far separated. It is true there is extreme t: tension during a Presidential canvass, but s Mr. Depew's allegation that business was a materially interrupted this season is dis- a proven by Bradstreet & Co., whose commer- p cial information is superior to his. If there a had not been a Presidential election for two t years more, there is a fair probability the g Mills bill would have passed within that Ia time, and that the Territories, because they o are Republican, would have been excluded o beyond that time. Frequent elections have a their evils; but are they as great as lurk in b long terms? They cost vast sums, but it C merely changes hands-is generally handed a down by those who have plenty to be dis- c tributed, and distributed honestly, in edu- ti cating the people through publications and a orators, using up "tin plates" for torches, n and various other industries too numerous C to mention. It may be the six-year-one term idea will prevail; but the argument is not all on that side by any means. so As to the question of Presidential election by popular vote, there are equally potent objections. While this is a government "of at the people, by the people, and for the peo- P ple," it must be remembered that this is a Union of States; that by the tenth amend ment to the constitution "the powers not delegated to the United States by the con- .l stitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to P the people;" that the President is "President F of the United States," and that one of the powers vested in the several States is to ap- , point electors, who, as representatives of the d State, vote for President and Vice President. To elect direct by the popular vote of the d entire country would be subversion of the Ic intent of the constitution, which is to elect him by States as Presi lent of the United States, and departure from which would de stroy the theory upon which the government R is established. It has so fallen, on more than one occasion, that the President elected tc by the States did not have a majority of the popular vote of the United States, but to elect him by popular vote he might be Presi dent of the people, but not of the United tl States. Aside from this, it is an established fact a that in the South there are many places 1 where the minority by ictimidation or fear, or by the hopelessness of their minority, t dare not or do not vote. While the condi tion of intimidation exists, and where from the expression and facts relative to the par ticipation of colored men in political affairs, it will yet exist for many years, and where the Democratic majorities are thereby almost solid, it is simply preposterous to ' claim that the established and constitutional C method sbould be broken down and the S President be elected by popular vote. .. . . ..____ _ President be elected by popular vote. q 8 n POLITICAL NOTES.

R. e- General Palmer, Democrat, -ho ran at against Private Fifer, Republican, for Gov y, ernor of Illinois, and was defeated, has m withdrawn from the Grand Army of the Re. or public, because he believes the members of a. that order voted against him and for his of opponent, or as he would construe it, they, of as Grand Army men, threw their inlaence . agaIlnst him asa Democrat, and in favor of r Fifer, who is a Republican, This is as Me strong as he can possibly put it. Now, every id Grand Army man knows that politics, or the a- disOnesion of them, are absolutely exclud al ed from the Post Room; that any member a would be court martialed and expelled from to any Post in the United States for raising or b- discussing any political questions therein, or s- giving a partizan bias to any proceedings or h actions of the Post. But any man is more my than foolish if he believes a Grand Army sf man will waive his political rights personally )f because he is a member of the order. Re a publicans do not ask Democrats to do that, n nor do Democrats expect Republicans to do a, it. As Comrades of the Grand Army they g put polities aside. As individuals, if any a- men outside the Post room, and aside from i- their fraternal relations, in America have a a right to vote and talk and work for their ie favorite candidate, they are those who served is to preserve the Union, and the 21st of Dee a ember will be the longest day in the year, e when they, of any political belief, yield that I. right. The veterans were Indignant at d Cleveland for vetoing meritorious" pension o bills, which a Democratic House and a Re ,f publican Senate had passed, and especially I- for the insulting terms in which be phrased e many of his messages. It is not unlikely, g many of them who never cast a Republican i- vote before, cast one November 6th, for it Benj. Harrison, who didn't send a substitute e to the war, but went himself. That was - their right and privilege. It is not improb e able many of them voted for Private Fifer i- in preference to General Palmer, for there is -I no distinction made in the G. A. R., on ac - count of former rank. There may be more t- Republicans that Democrats in the order. I. But Comrade Palmer and Comrade Fifer o were treated with absolute impartiality by e the G. A. R., as an orgnization, and the for t mer knows it. The Masons, Odd Fellows, a and the hundred and one other Fraternal and Benevolent organizations are not less partizan than the G. A. R. If persons for a any particular'bellef or objection see proper 3 to not join any Fraternal or Benovelent or a ganization to which they are eligible, that t is their affair. If any Union veteran, hon ' orably discharged, sees proper to remain 1 I outside the G. A. R., that is his privelage, D although those who would be glad to call I a him Comrade will regret it. But when t Comrades are defeated for office, especially 1 I when defeated by another Comrade, it is certainly a great wrong to misstate the facts to the injury of the order, although the I withdrawal of Comrade Palmer will have no more significance than that of any other 5 Comrade. YELLOW FEVER ON THE BOSTON. Yellow Jack Breaks Up a Diplomatic Visit by I a Man of War. 5 SNw YORK, Nov. 24.-The United States f steamer, Boston, last reported at Port an 4 Prince, Hayti, where she was sent when the c Haytien government seized the American I steamer, Haytien Republic, reached New York this morning and anchored at quaran- t tine t Commander Rampel reports that he left Port an Prince Nov. 16. Surgeon Simon, Frank Thomas, seaman, and Chas. Mitchell, a an ordinary seaman, were sick on board. c John J. Kelley and E. J. Trapp, apprentices, a died Nov. 20. November 21 John Uselman, marine, died, followed the next day by the death of John Retzel, another marine. Yel low fever is supposed to be the cause. The n steamer carries 356 men. The officers of the Boston decline to make any statement regarding the steamer Haytien I Republic, recently seized by the Haytien t1 authorities. They say the matter will have v to be settled by the authorities at Washing- 3 ton, ti In relation to the Haytien Republic mat- fm ter, from a chat with one of the officers of g the steamer Boston, it seems the steamer Haytien Republic was captured while com- tm ing out of the harbor of St. Marie, for try ing to raise the blockade, by the Haytien tm man of war, De Saline. Captain Ramsay, of 1 the Boston, had several interviews and ihter ceded with the President of Hayti, who re fused to release the steamer, and the matter n was referred to the Secretary of State at SWashington for final action. WAsHIN.TON, Nov. 24.-The navy de partment to-day received a telegram from Captain Ramsay, commanded the United a States steamer, Boston, which arrived at quarantine, New York harbor, this morning, 1 stating the vessel had yellow fever aboard. t The Boston had been at Port au Prince, ' Hayti, on a diplomatle mission, but left on the 15th, when the fever appeared. There has been no new case on board since the 19lh inst. No information of a late date from a Hayti regarding the disposition of the seized I American vessel, Haytien Republic, has been ri received at the Department of State, and it g is presumed the Boston bears dispatches u from the United States Consul.

CHICAGO, Iii., Nov. 27.--Io a dingy grog shop, 93 south Desplalnes street, a man drop ped dead early the other evening. He ap- 1 peared to be more than 70 years old. " Though dissipation had made his counte. nance anything but pleasant to look upon, the massive frame and clear cut features showed him to be a man of more than or dinary birth and breeding. In bis pockets the police found papers which led to his identity. He was W. W. Drummond, once the Supreme Judge of the territory of Utah. The dead man was a Virginian by birth, and in 1853 was appointed to the highest judi cial rposition in the territory of Utah by President Pierce. He was then compara tively a young man, and, although having an interesting family, fell In with a dissolute woman named Pleasant Edgerton. This woman was the cause of his ruin, and for the last six years he has been a drunken pauper, living in the saloons on the West Side. The Kentucky Senatorship. CHIcAoo, Nov. 26.-The Times's Louis- * ville, Ky.: The next Kentucky legislature ' will be called upon to elect a successor to J. C. 8. Blackburn, in the United States. ti Senate. Among the contestants for the office c are Senator Blackburn, Speaker Carlisle, a Congressman McCleary, Ex-Congressman j' Brown, and Gov. Bueckner. Senator Black- G burn has possibly the advantage. He is in t possession, which is a powerful lever towards t re-election. His following is already orga nised and he has made himself popular with the people. Carlisle has no money to spend and is not the politician that Blackburn is. He is altogether of a different type but his great ability and National reputation for h honesty and firmness has given him a deep hold upon the people. If he wants to be o Senator and will say so it does not seem likely that Blackburn can defeat him with at all his arts and all his powerful friends. Moreover if he enters the race bis candidacy will mean possibly the withdrawal of the other men with the possible exception of n Blackburn. o t ' NEWS NOTES' AND MENTION. ran= Mtt W.a Mde1, who ims writaoa io I verees ontof which the boys have Lids as good deal o fun,t is proving in vemslfea: Re tion.

I A Substitute for the Screw and Paddies. Naw Your, Nov. 28.--The Secor propel lor, "Eureka," will be launched at Polleon's shibpyard, Brooklyn, to-morrow. The boat and machinery have been entirely rebuilt. All indieatioes point to the success of the a new system of marine propulsion. The . "Eureka" is 100 feet long. Her bulkhead divides amidships. The machinery is placed aft, immediatelyagainst the rudder poet, and I does not take up more than 12 equare feet. In Seaor's system propulsion is effected by direct reation against the external water of Sgaseonus products of successive explosions of / fuel, gas and air issuing from submerged tubes. The machinery consists of a series e of heavy steel cylinders, the ends or muzzles of which are open and are in direct contact e with the water surrounding the vessel. These cylinders contain no internal ma f chinery whatever, but are filled with air and inflammable gas or hydro-carbon exploded by the agency of electricity, and which forces the vessel forward or backward at will. A reversal in either direction is effected by 9 opening suitable gate valves at each end of the cylinder. The continuity of action is obtained by means of a number of chambers a from which discharges occur, not simultane Soe.sly, but in well-defined rotation. The electric spark, which causes the combustion, is generated between two electrodes which feed and regulate automatically, and are so arranged in pairs that should an accident happen to one it is immediately thrown out of the circuit and automatica.ly replaced by Sits perfect mate. The current is derived from its storage battery. s NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS. Missoula has ordered a steam fire engine, r to cost $4,000. Sheriff Hathaway has gone after Godas, the murderer of Embody.

DICKERSON DEAD. ndi- - er.- One of the Ablest and Most Brilliant of Montana Journalists gone to Rlest. low, nees John S. Dickerson, died in Helena, Thurs ipite day of last week. We never had the pleas Butte are of meeting or communicating with him isla. personally, but recognized in his work the au- best that has ever been done on the Montana press, and that kindly fraternity which so Lnty endeared him to intimates extended to us, died although a stranger to him, and was fully was reciprocated. We join sincerely with his near personal friends in mourning the loss of one 1879 who stood at the head of the Montana press she In many of the essential elements of a journ alist, and who we believe was worthy in of every way the following eloquent words by tore one who knew him well: are. Helena Record, Nov, 23rd. and John S. Dickerson died yesterday. Thus, He sadly and in dreary pain passes from a dr. world, to him not over bright, and soon, too, tter alas, from the memory of his fellows, one who, while he has done as much as any one Sto man in shaping the destinies and furthering I Mr. the progress of the community in which he I the labored, is himself comparatively unknown. Aly, lways in the busiest of the busy throng, ran and engaged in a calling which perhaps more 1 ieir than any other, needs a devoted and concen der trated attention, John S. Dickerson still I found time to make friends who loved him, t and courage to make enemies who feared him e er In the exceptional combination and bal- a lance of the mental and moral faculties which separate truth from error and discern 1 justice, he stood preeminent. The power to reason with precision and with that unhalt- I ent ing swiftness which his work made necessary C was his in no ordinary degree. His keen in ad tellect drove its way through fallacy and sub- I terfuge relentlessly. His heroic courage was 3 aly as insensible to the seductions of friendship 1 out as the censure of the ignorant and narrow g I n minded. All the powers that constitute the s In superior equipments of the modern jour- J est- nalist were his by nature-unerring logic, 8 mg prodigious memory, stable judgment, purl- J lec- tive of motive, true impartiality, transparent n hio clearness, swift and sure reach for tile essence fa aid of every matter, indifference to applause, om abhorrence of the mean, the false, the hypo- o t a critical; high sense of the true dignity of his s, position-he had them all. Of petty ani- d wn mosity he was totally devoid. He tenderly in respected the conscience of every man; he ck, counseled with and obeyed his own. Wealth ree or the emoluments for which the sordid sigh or he never sought. His best efforts were con As secrated to the high duties entrusted to him. L rer He never carried the power and preroga- 01 tg Lives of his public position into his personal D )or quarrels. He never used them for patronage so fty of family or friends. He never employed it he his opportunities as a commentator or critic, re sill to promote faction or to secure political or m nd commercial gain. In all his labors, so sud ddenly cut short in the prime of life, he has as. consistently done as much as a brilliant mind in- could do towards bringing Montana journ on alism into its present proud position. ib In his private life, John S. Dickerson was t-an unfailing friend, a loving husband, and a se. kind father. His glowing virtues were such an as have helped the world in which he lived; o- his faults hurt only himself. The onward wt y rushing world which he has left may soon I. id forget him, but the place he left will long re 31 main unfilled. 1' I Mr. Dickerson was born at Springlield, Ill., im ee on the 5th of March, 1848, and was therefore he d- passed forty years of age. His early aim was the the practice of law, and he was at onetime a student in the law office of the president elect, Benjamin Harrison. Later, however, he gave up the law and entered journalism. His first active work, we believe, was editor in of the Indianapolis Sentinel, in the campaign of 1876. Six years later he became managing le editor of the Pioneer Press, where he made Pct Sa fine record, He was also Associated Press P agent at that point. In 1886 he became edi- - tor of the Helena Independent, and the ad t ance in the point of circulation and influ- 'hl it ence made by the paper immediately on his the le assuming charge are sufticient proof of his ti - pronounced ability. On severing his con- viz nection with the Independent he became and editor of the Butte Miner. Next he went to M.' Spokane Falls as editor of the Chronicle, and last August returned to Helena to resume charge of the Independent. He has remained of here since, but was about to leave for Wash ington, D. C., to enter upon journalistic work there. rs. While accompanying W. A. Clark during as- the latter portion of the campaign, Mir. im Dickerson contracted a severe cold at Liv he ingston, resulting in pneumonia. He was na very ill there for a time, but recovered s.ulti so ciently to return to Helena, where, le was us, taken down with a reattack, culminating in Ily death yesterday at 10. a. m.
