BISMARCK, D.T., MAY 13, 1881. Trains are again running regularly be tween St. Paul and Sioux City, and the blocaded mails are now all in, another large installment having been received sist evening. Hout Lsgersoll has been retained for ut'feii&e I'»y the Star Route contractors, (jh. ui vhich. an exchange infers that Hob j.s houewt in his belief that there is no hereafter. James Fuxk, "\7ni. E. Carson and Jas. Llaekinan have been arrested in Phila delphia for complicity.in the Star Service frauds. Carson was a contractor and the ilhero straw bidders. Seeding- was concluded on the 10th on ike Hayes farm. Two hundred acres was i\vu to wheat and three hundred to oats, 'i he crop was put in in most excellent shape, far better than last year. Dyer & Howard's Journal of Music, aijiislied at St. Paul, by Dyer& Howard, Las made its appearance. It contains ser trai choice pieces of music and much in teresting reading. The subscription price i» sixty cents per annum published monthly. Other arrests have been made of star route conspirators. Dorsey and associ ates are certain to ba indicted, and will demand a speedy trial. Suit has been commenced against Dorsey b}r one who worked up sentiment for increasing and expediting service, five dollars per day and expenses having been promised. Gex. A. J. Edgeutok, the new Senator from Minnesota, is proving to be of excel lent material. He is a good lawyer, and is a man of high-toned honor, and ener getic. He is of more than ordinary abil ity, and, during the two years he will tserve under his appointment, will make nn excellent reputation. The following entries were made at the Fargo land office during the month of April: Homesteads, 237, tree Claims, 147 declaratory statements, 245 soldiers' de claratory statements, 33 cash entries, J42 final proof. 14—embracing a total acreage of 134,080 acres. This is what live local newspapers have done for that country. vIt is believed that this week will prac tically clear up the six percent, bonds, and that fully §100,000.000 will have beer: surrendered for three and one-lmlf per cents. Thi's immense^vmg of interest has been secured through. Mr. Windom's policy without legislation, and without in manner disturbing the money mar Uet. Postmaster General Jtimes has adopted system to be used in opening and re-. jjtr hids for mail seivice that makes tampering with bids after being filed in iiie department impossible. It is believed that through collusion between clerks in the contract oifice Me. and ring'bidders lower higher bids have frequently been sub stituted for those previously put in, when it was necessary to bid lower or safe to bid higher in order to get the contract wanted. Peitigrew filed charges against Gov. Grdway while he was absent in New York,With a view to impeaching his official integrity. The Governor uromptly met-them oh his return, and appears to have the advantage of Wr. Pettigrew, so (ariis the Departments ate concerned, in -tWcontinued contest between the Gov ernor and the Delegate. Mi. Pettig.ew has also filed a protest against the con struction of the territorial penitentiary at Sioux Falls, on the plans prepared by the Governor. He is very bitter, but insists that he does not want to "kill oft"' the Governor. On the contrary, lie expresses a hope that he may live long enough to tnable him to "get even" with "the gen tleman from Hampshire, as he styles him.

THE TBIBUNE does not care to continue this controversy, but should the true inwardness of the legislature ever be shown up much that is far from being creditable will appear. If to denounce a ring formed for courrupt or bulldozing purposes is to go back on one's party the Tribune is likely to be frequently off. BISMARCK. Attention is being attracted to Bismarck now more than ever before, because of the assured early completion of the North Pa cific railroad. A glance at the maps will show the im portance ot its position. It id located at the North Pacific crossing of the greatest river on the continent and it is now very generally conceded that of the three Paci fic railroads the North Pacific will be the most important. It runs through a far better country than either of the other roads a country that is developing more rapidly than any other portion of the United States. Attention is being diverted from bonan za mining to bonanza farming, and large fortunes have and will be made buying and developing North Pacific "land and not a single case of loss can be cited in this connection. Until last year the Red River country attracted universal attention, but now the tide of immigration is passing on and the Shyenne, James and Missouri river val leys are receiving their share of those coming to make their homes in the west. Settlement is extending up and down the Missouri river from Bismarck and northwest of this city will be opened a country rivalling the Red River valley in all of its best qualities, and surpassing it in the "lay of the land!' and strength of soil, while it has climatic advantages, ly ing as it does in the track of the warm currents of air from the Pacific coast. Every year the trade of this section is attracting greater, attention and every year much is being added to the impor tance of Bismarck. Within three years the North Pacific will-be completed and by the time of its completion, at least three other roads will make the battle right here for a share of the trade center ing a.t Bismarck. Not on the west side of the river, but oil the east side. These roads will be the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, two lines in all probability the Chicago and Northwestern and the St Paul, Minneapolis aud Manitoba railroad. Not one of them- will have occasion to cross to the west side of the river. Two will terminate here, for a time at least, but the St. Paul and Manitoba road, will push on in a northwesterly direction to a connection with ilie Canadian Pacific at its crossing of the Saskatchewan. These things ate just as certain to be as the sun is to rise and set, or as water is certain to seek its level aud he who seeks to put money in a country where there is oppor tunity to double and trebble investment within the next half dozen years is short sighted indeed if he doos not consider the advantages presented by this region be fore planting his means elsewhere. Farmers to develop the country are most wanted. The soil produces No. 1 crops, and a greater return in bushels per acre and in pounds per bushel, than in the Red River country and the graiu is brighter. The competition afforded by the Missouri river and the North Pacific gives abetter market than is enjoyed by any other portion of Dakota, while the price of farm produce is enhanced still more by the immense local demand for grain of every sort. The wheat on the ex President ILiyes farm Was sold at §1.25 per bushel and the oats sixty cents, while potatoes are worth $2 per bushel. How long this state of altairs will continue is a matter of conjecture* of course, but the high prices for farm produce have been maintained since the' settlement of the country eight years ago. Besides the quality of the wheat is such that it com mands ten cents more per bushel in any market in the world than the wheat grown in more southern latitudes. Money is wanted for investment iu business blocks and dwelling houses for rent and for four years to come a return of at least twenty per cent per annum can be relied upon from investments in this line. Money is wanted for loans upon the real estate of the industrious and frugal farmer for loans upon city property by mechanics willing to pay interest for a few years, but not able to pay the high rents now demanded, and on investments of this character ten to twelve per cent, can be realized on from five to ten year loans. More money is wanted iu hotels and ho tel outfits, aud in the development of the the country in various ways. Men industrious and men of means are wanted. The firdl to develop the country and the latter 10 encourage the work. A FURTHEit examination of the records shows that of those whose names were yesterday published as being entitled to take out their final citizenship papers Geo. Hay and Robert McKee have already done so. Thomas P. Davis appears to have made his final proof in the United States court at Fargo May 29th, 1ST7. Da ,vjd Stewart, Nov. ^st, 1877, and Robert Maeiiidw Nov.• .30th, 18S0, are the only ones-in-,addition tp,tjio.se named ijbove who hitve taken ojiMheir^nal papers in the courts of,this county, and until .final paper? areia^cygogt as li\r TMW, a •WHrteet Pan serve on juries/or make final.proof in the entry of public lands. Proof most be made, and the court most issue a certifi cate before aliens ate entitled to the rights of citizenship. Where the .alien served in the army of the United States he need 'not have declared his intention but may be admitted to citizenship upon proof of service. $ut the court must act in his case as well. The publication of these facts being made now those interested will have ample time to qualify them selves to exercise the right of suffrage be fore the next general election. Under the registration law the evils existing in the past may be remedied. And if we expect to build up confidence in Bismarck and its fuiure we must protect the dearest of all rights of American citizens—the right of suffrage. There may be other cases, like that of Air. Davis where final proof has been made elsewhere, which the records of this county do not show. The Council is considering the question of salaries to be paid the city officers du ring the ensuing year. Before determin ing what to pay would it not be well to consider the question of revenues—what amount can be raised by taxation, and what amount by the license system? Of course, any necessary expense for the protection of society or property will be justified but Bismarck's resources ought not to be taxed for any fancy purpose. Those who guard, the city or its interests ought to be paid according to the value of their service or the time spent. Good men ought to be employed by the city as watchmen and on the police force, and paid well for it, too but is there reason why the salary of the City Attorney should be raised from §600 per annum to §900, and all other officers be paid the same figure, as some have proposed? The people will some of these days be gin to take an interest in puDlic aflairs, and begin to ask why certain expenses have been incurred. Capital has been invited to come in and build up the city and develop the country but the first question capital raises is as to taxes. Have they become oppressive, or are they likely to become so? Is money raised by taxation faithfully applied? It is men who mean business that are want ed now, and they will very naturally ask if our public affairs are administered on business principles. Communities as well as individuals having poor credit labor under great dis advantage. If too many officers are em ployed, and their pay made higher than the city can stand, will not the paper of the city be so depreciated as to almost de stroy its value? And will not the bur delis of the tax-payer be increased be cause of it, while those employed would be better off with less of promise and more of actual pay. There are things almost as important as: the salary of city officers for which pro vision should be made. Complete fire protection, for instance. To gain this some water system must be adopted. With an abundant supply of water it will be possible to secure lawns and a more certain growth of shade trees, not to speak of reduced insurance and other advantages. The city fathers of to-day are laying the foundation ifor a' great city. It does not need a prophst to forecast its future. Certain causes produce certain effects, and the law is as fixed as the hills. The causes exist'that will make of Bis marck a city as important as any on the Missouri River, and that, too, within the next ten years. Within that time it will strive with St. Paul as that city now strives with Chicago for the trade of the Northwest. As the full-grown man rises above dicker in jack-knives and marbles, and gets down to solid business, so Bismarck ought to get above the mere work of pro viding place and pay for si lew, and put in some good, solid work for the public good. Give us city improvements that will give laboring men work, and make the city attractive to the eyes of men looking for investments. The star route from Bismarck to Keogli cost only §125,000 per year under the old ring svstem. One postal pouch seems to have constituted the messenger's outfit but he made good time for a pony express —three hundred miles in sixty-four hours. The messenger expedited the business, and the contractors pocketed the swag.— Pioneer Press. There is enough of sensation in the star service business without resorting to downright lying concerning it, and the Tbidune regrets to see the truth so terri bly mutilated by so respectable a journal as the Pioneer Press. The Bismarck and Fort Keogii route was increased to a daily and expedited to sixty-five hours. The highest price paid was $70,000 per tm num. This was subsequently reduced to §69,000 by terminating the route at Miles City instead of at Fort Keogli. The com pensation was still further reduced by icason of the contractors' failing to make the time required of them, the reduction reaching in some instances $13,000 per quarter In winter the average time has. been about six \ys, two Weeks, even, sometimes having been consumed iu making the trips. The mail is very large, averaging not less than 300 pounds,some times reaching 500 pounds daily. The still wart element throughout the country, as was to be expected, denounces the action of Mr. Garfield in his with drawal of the New York nominations, and insists that Garfield's course will lose New York to the Republicans.

All freight bound for Montana and the great Northwest now comes via the North Pacific and Bis marck. Apropos, the Sioux City Journal of the 12th says: "There does not seem to be much freight offering at St. Louis for Benton this spring. The Dakota came up with a small third of a trip for Benton, and the Rucker without any to speak of. The current of far Northwest trade seems to be cutting anew channel somewhere." The Journal might have added that the new channel is cut at Bis marck.. It is eight years to-day since the senior Tribune man arrived at Bismarck and arranged to establish the paper, which appeared a few weeks later and during all these years the Tribune has never missed an issue, or failed to put in its best licks for Bismarck and the country tributary to it. Others have tried to build up rival papers, and have retired in disgust but the Tribune has lived, struggled at times, but, on the whole, prospered, and is now as fixed as any thing in business can- be. The few who would block its progress might as well at tempt to stay the current of the mighty Missouri. The daily is a success. It must be getting dull in Sioux City and Yankton. The grocers have adver tised that they will hereafter close their places of business at 8 o'clock each even ing, except Saturday, when they will be kept open an hour later. In Bismarck, orders for several thousand dollars' worth of goods are often given and filled after 9 o'clock for a boat or transportation outfit, which, perhaps,is to leave the same night or early next morning. Over one-third the business of Bismarck merchants is transacted after six in the evening. The Republican papers of the land, ex cepting the Inter Ocean and Globe-Demo• crat, and an occasional smaller concern among the stalwart organs, stand for the President in the content forced by Mr. Conkling. The following from the Chi cago Tribune is a fair sample of Republi can comment: It is the fable of the wolf and the lemh over again. The President is accused of an attempt to bulldoze senators because lie has refused to be bulldozed by Senators—refused to surrender a right as old as the constitution. In re sisting thi* Conkling caucus the President is not only defending his appointment prerogative, but fighting the battles of the Republican party. T. P. Davis, whose name appears in the list of those not naturalized, published yesterday, took out his final papers of cit izenship May 29th, 1877. The object of the publication of the list was not to stir up the past but tor correction in the fu ture, and if any injustice has been done others The Tribune desires to make cor rectiou. In the make-up ot the article the list of names became transposed and the first should have appeared iu place of the last. Mr. Mitchell, the new Senator from Pennsylvania, has a son at Grand Forks Mr. Hunt, Secretary of the Navy, a son at Fargo Secretary Windom, a nephew at Fort Yates and Mr. Blaine, a sou at St. Paul. Mr. Garfield also has a warm cor ner in his heart for the Northwest. So, all things considered, Dakota is pretty well fixed for sympathy, so far as the present Administration is concerned. Fargo lias prospered beyond any city in the Northwest during the past two years because of its live newspapers. Every man who has invested in printer's ink has gained immense returns. The persistant advertisers in every instance are successful. Bismarck will grow in proportion as it adopts the same means. The Jamestown Daily Alert has been sued for libel, and is proud of the noto riety thus attained. The damages are as sessed at §1,000, and the Atert regrets that a larger suni is not. claimed. The plain tiffs attorneys are Allen & Dodge, and the defense has retained Judge Goodrich. Senator Conger took strong ground in the caucus iu favor of the administra tion and against Senator Conkling. Mr. Conger will not be so ponderous as Mr. Conkling, b'ut it will not need a great ef fort" on his part to become the equal of Mr. Conkling jn keen sarcasm. Mr. Wixdom has saved two and one half per cent interest cn $195,000,000, without disturbing in any degree the business interests of the country, and the entire expense of renewing or continuing the bonds will not amount to §2,000. The Tribune is not after any one in the citizenship matter. It published the record as it found it without omitting or adding any name, hence good will grow out of the-publication if those interested iearn the law and comply with it. The Postmaster General has discon tinued star and steamboat mail routes, saving to the government $75,000 per an num. From indications yesterday a fight will be made on the steamboat service be tween Bismaack and Fort Benton. Dakota.

It is a specimen of Louns berry's energy, and will' doubtless be a successs.—Jamestown Herald*, The daily TRIBUNE at Bismarck has ap peared. It is a live, go-ahead, all at home journal, such as you might expect from Col. Lounsberry and his partner, Mr. Jewell. Success to it say vre.—2Jower City Herald. The Daily TRIBUNE made its bow to the people of Bismarck and vicinity on April 2(Jfh. It is a five column, four page paper, and announces itself as fol lows: ''Henceforth and forever the Bismarck daily TRIBUNE will appear. It is an in stitution founded to meet the require ments of a prosperous and enterprising community, and will strive in every par ticular to merit the support which is nec essary lor its success. Identified as THE TRIBUNE has always been with the giowth and prosperity of Bismarck, it now marks a new era in the only metropolis of the Great Northwest, by issuing daily.—Lake Superi&r News. The Bismarck daily TRIBUNE has made its appearance, and is with pleasure placed upon our exchange list. A small but meaty publication, containing tele graphic reports, a live local department and an editorial page of a very readable character, and taken altogether is a credit to the publishers, the city in which it appears and the territory. A noticeable and commendable feature of the newspa per, is its disposition to grant and exact justice and fair dealing in public aflairs and treating of public men and also its independence. The first mentioned char acteristic is manifested in a well prepared article in reply to the attack made by a few unscrupulous territorial papers upon Governor Ordway, concerning which it takes occasion to say: "It seems singular that they should choose a time, when he is doing the most for Dakota, for their words ot defamation. Dakota wants men from every station in life and from every country to come and aid in developing her resources, and it is a shame that it can be said that a dispos ition exists among some of our people to injure by every possible means those in vited, if tliey come with federal commis sions or with aspirations for oiiice." Its independence, without which no pa per can succeed, is shown by its com ments upon the action of a certain firm which withdrew its patronage because a report was made of a certain fracas hap pening at the store of the advertiser. The firm is politely informed that when they undertake to dictate to a newspaper what should and what should not appear in its columns they are entirely out of tlieii sphere. Truculency upon the part of a newspa per never accomplishes more than tempo rary advantage, while it invariably places the*journal in an unpleasant position, from which it is difficult to depart.— Black Hills Pioneer.

John Conline, of the Seventh United Staies Cavalry, cuite to this city last evening from Fort Worth, by the G:30 train on the Fort Wayne Railroad, lie had not be«n well for some time, and was on his way to Washington for med ical treatment. He behaved strangely on Ihe cars, but was not violent. At the Union Depot he showed evident signs of insanity, and was throwing his money about lavishly. The depot police took him to the Central Hotel, where he took a room, and remained quiet until after midnight. Then lie began to demolish the furniture, and threw his clothing out of the window, saying he wanted to dry them on the telegraph wire. He was brought to the Central Station at 5 o'clock this morning. At times he was. quiet enough, but every hour or two lie would rave again, imagining he was fighting In dians.
