The pioneers of the capital city,
as well as of the entire state, will
recall to mind Dr. Burleighi in whose

Joy's Epitaph.
in and which, wfll be of interest to
An old-timer in the Dakotas and
Montana, named Doctor Burleigh,
among other things practiced law. A
young lawyer named Joy opposed Bur
leigh in a case. It was a criminal
case and Joy said something in his
address to the Jury about wanting for
„„-.~~
Optimistic Lincoln.
Doctor Burleigh was one of the
earliest settlers of Dakota and Mon
tana and was a boyhood friend of
Abraham Lincoln. Tthe doctor used
to tell thte Lincoln story on himself.!
When Lincoln was nominated Bur-!
leigb was in Minnesota on his way to
a logging camp. He laughed at the
thought of Lincoln running for presi-j
dent, and went into the woods. He
stayed in the woods until the follow-1
ing summer whan he came out he
found that Lincoln had not only been
elected but inaugurated.
Burleifeh hurried to Washington and
demanded a job.
"What kind of place do you
want?" asked President Lincoln.
"Any kind—where there's not much
work and big pay."
"I'm afitdd,"smiled Lincoln, "that
most of those jobs are gone. I'll have
my secretary look round and see what
we can find for you. Come back to
morrow.
Burleigh went back.
"Burteigh." said President Lincoln,
'there isn't much left. The best thing
I can offer you i's the agency of the
Yankton Sioux Indians. It pays $1,500
a year."
"But, Abe," expostulated Burleigh,
"a man can't live on that salary! I'd
either have to starve to death or rob
the government."
"Wen, Burleigh, replied the presi
dent, "you'll aever starve to death!"

PEKIN, Nov. 3—The national as
sembly today completed a draft of
the basis upon which it proposed to
construct the new constitution of
China. It was submitted to the
throne and accepted immediately.
The tentative plan orovides for the
perpetuity of the Manchus by dynasty

which is to be writtea by the nation

are made ineligible to the offices of
premier, members of the cabinet,* and

inces.
SHANGHAI, Nov. 3.— The arsenal
and native city of Shanghai were
taken over by the revolutionists late
this afternoon. No restraints were
offered by the authorities or such of
the public as remains loyal. It is ex
pected that Wu Sung, at the mouth
of the Wu Sung river, and ten miles
north of Shanghai, and up river forts
will fall before night. It is also be.
lieved that Nan King and Ching Kiang
will be captured by the rebels tomor
row. Some .. the foreign warships
lainded marines in the city before the
rebels took possession. Foreign vol
unteers were called out and every
precaution was taken to protect the
concessions.
At 5:30 o'clock all telephone and
telegraph communications with the
arsenal was cut off. Earlier in the
day the revolutionary flag was
hoisted over all the buildings in the
vicinity of the arsenal.
The police and native soldiers made
no effort to Interfere, on the con
trary, fraternizing with the insurg
ents. The crowds which early began
to pour into the streets became a
surging throng and in the natural ex
citement a number of shots were fired
by the government forces in the di
rection of the mob, but these were
without effect.
People Sympathetic With Rebels.
It was plain to see that the Chinese
soldiers, the police and native volun
teers wer-e all in sympathy with the
revolutionists
The latest advice from Hankow

Mayor Jackson, of Williston, says
the people of North Dakota are mak

the exhibit for the state at the St.

vision will make North Dakota a sub

points out the fact that Washington
and Oregon will come with exhibits
which will be hard to equal with unit
