BISMARCK, D. T., MAY 20,1881. THE Yankton Press and Dakotaian was printed for two months on Manilla paper, and most of the time it appeared as a half-sheet. ROSCOE CojiKLiNG, like other gr.eat men, will go to his grave a disappointed man He never can be President of the United States, and did not attain remarkable suc cess as a President-fighter. THE daily TRIBUNE may be pronounced a success when subscriptions come in by telegraph. Another was received yester day from Fort Bu'ford. Samuel O'Con nell wajts it for six months. THE Dakota News, published at Watter town, 1. T., has just finished circulating its large edition of 30,000 copies. The paper is piofusely illustrated, and is re lete with interesting articles descriptive of South Dakota. CAPT. BAKER, of the Sixth U. S. Infan try, encloses a check for two copies of the' daily TRIBUNE one year,and expresses the hope that this, Bismarck's staunchest friend and advocate, may live long and prosper, and he rather thinks it will. THE Fargo Daily Argus has donned a new dress, improved its yereral make up. and is now one of the prettiest as well us ablest daily papers in the Northwest. Good news, presented in an attractive style, goes far toward establishing a news paper's popularity. T?HE Yankton Gun-Wad (a^as the Press and Dakotaian) says: "The Bismarck DAILY TRIBUNE comes to us regularly,and is full of news, presented in an attractive manner. It is about-the size of a gun wad,vbut will doubtless become larger as it becomes older." THE Manfft) department of the TRI BUNE will be as.good and full as money and brains can make it if the eftort to rep resent the city fairly and furnish the news is appreciated. With increased press fa cilities, which will be secured in a very short time, there is no reason why the daily TRIBUNE,considerably enlarged and containing the latest news from every quarter of the globe, should not be had at Mandan every morning for breakfast. EDWIN F. BISHOP, a gentleman of ex tended newspaper experience, a short hand reporter, and a member of the 3Tew York bar, has been secured to establish a branch office of the TRIBUNE at Mandan. He will do the local and editorial for that of the river, taking in tlie extension, \and will see that the TRIBUNE is in the hands of lour. IAN sub?crioevs at an early hour evjry morning. He has located at Man dan,and become one of th& people of that Aiterprisingvillage. interesting.btatement regarding the ,nher of emigrants arriving at Castle Gaklen, appears in the telegraphic col li m\s. Nine thousand two hundred is the Ibcord since Sunday. 1 he old -coun try W»Ple niin fl«V are tirin2: ofNiili,lsm Jewish persecutions, evictions, despotism and tyraiX and wisely prefer come to the U:utel| States, where Uncle S un, in Da kotn afone, lias- enough land to give them a.l nfiafn, and,Hie means to maintain peace,prosperity and independence to tlicmseWs and their posterity. FARGIIIS chop-fallen over the change in ownewiup of the North Pacific rail road becW of the certainty of its early completion under the new management. The inlerW that has gained control has purchased'for the money there is in it,and the order ifll along *ie line will be to "push think." They are boomeis, and there will I* no lack of money, brains •ind energy.1 They will have no enemas io punish aikl will reward with friend f,hip every licality where business can be added or MRIM-Y made. The TRIBUNE, admiring dash and pluck as it does, is ratiier pleased wiih the mrn aftairs have taken. ., THE TINHUNE hhs not charged that cor -V ruption nas existed in the management "-i'ofcitv mafers, and it. does not assume Mayor .ahd Council will fgfi Lrf Wv^tkul to the trust imposed But does in itweiity believe that the Kti sdiitv, constanly de h|to the city, ought An ike simMevel with those $ .. inlilfWfe hours at a prdne pre duty edWlt mm aside from liis work, for which special provision is made, for which he is lolly paid outpide of liis salaiy. It is very doubtfhl, indeed, if there is business to justify the salary paid the city attorney. And the Street Commissioner should be paid three, four or five dollars a day for the days he works but to pay a straight salary of 1600 cannot be justified. MR. SWKET takes the ground that the city does not give a warranty deed to the lots transferred by it, and therefore there is some value in the title given bv him to Mr. Hughes. The title, however, was diiect from the United States to the city, and, when the city grants and conveys, a guarantee is implied that makes the title given as good as anything in law can be. Mr. Sweet says that the people sneered at his claim, and refused to give the nom inal sum (one dollar and fifty cents a lot) demanded by him for quit-claim deeds, which he expressed a willingness to give to actual occupants. There are some other facts, also, which ought not to be forgotten. Mr. Sweet has proven in the courts of this county that he was employed by competent persons as an attorney in the town-site case, and recovered pay for his service as such attorney. He appeared for the city against the claim which he now prefers, as well as against other ap plicants, and it has been shown that the contest for the city was largely gained through his assistance and through his skill. As a result of that contest, the Gov ernment decided that the city was enti tled to the land in question. But Mr. Sweet now appears as an adverse claim ant, and has actually deeded, in his own name, the property he won, in that long and expensive contest, for his client. The land laws of the United States may permit this. The rules under which at torneys are admitted to practice may sus tain him but the TRIBUNE begs to doubt it. Mr. Stoyell, Col. Sweet's partner at the present time, was his associate at the time the town-site case was carried to a successful issue, and was his attorney in his suit to recover pay for his services, and it does seem that he is scarcely the person to take up or defend a suit for the city in relation to this matter. The TRIBUNE does not wish to stir up strife it does not intend to criticise with out cause but it regards it important that every stumbling-block in the way of Bis marck's prosperity should be removed. The first question raised by capital is as to title the second, as to taxes and, if there is any wrong in connection with either, that wrong ought to be righted. There is a tide in the aftairs of cities, as well as of men,which, if taken at its flood, leads on to fortune. The tide has now turned in Bismarck's favor, and it is to the interest of every man in the city to have done whatever it is necessary to do to make it safe for men of means to come in and invest in real estate to buy lots and build tenement houses and business blocks, or engage in manufacturing. It is people that make the city, and, through the development of their inter ests and the surrounding country, the business of the city is sustained. BISMARCK has many warm friends abroad, and among them are none more enthusiastic and confident than Dr.Guild, of Rupert, Vt., who owns valuable tracts of land in this vicinity. He writes the following from the Green Mountain State: RUPERT, Vt.. May 11.1881. To the Editor of the Tribune: congratulate you on the successful issue of the DXITR TRIBUNE, which reaches ine regularly only three days after publication. It certainly is a success as a newspaper, and I trust it will prove equally so financially. Enclosed find check for $10, for which change weekly to daily for Mr. J. E. Austin, at this office. Mr. Austin owns 330 acres about seven miles east of Bis marck, and contemplates its cultivation next season. Tha Bismarck "Boom" is echoing through the Green Mountains pretty loudly just now. Hardly a day passes that inquiries are not made of me in regard to your city. You have the Inside track of the whole Northwest, and people East are just beginning to find it out. Yours truly, J. II. GUILD. THE TRIBUNE does not know very much about law but it knows that H. H. Wil son, formerly a Bismarck lawyer, is now in the penitentiary, for giving a deed to real estate when he had no right to do so. And a few cases can be found in the books where persons receiving a deed to property from persons who had no right to deed are also in the Penitentiairy. Title to real estate is something that can not be safelv fooled with. THE TRIBUNE undertook to say yester day that the City Council had wisely de termined to investigate the question of revenues before fixing the salaries of its officers but the printer changed the word "revenues" into "sewerage," and made a ridiculous blunder. OORIIAM, it seems, did not hav? any knowledge of the article in the New York Herald giving the inside view of the Conkling-Garfield controversy. lie most emphatically denies it and the truth of his statement is now conceded. JAMES R. BEACH the star route con spirator lias determined to squeal, and it is said his testimony will involve promi nent parties. POSTMASTER General James has saved over four hundred thousand dollars by re ducing unnecessary stage and steamboat mail service. Irnow appears that Lieut. Cherry was killed by one of his own men, Thomas 4-1 Locke, while pursuing deserteas. Lpcke also fired upon a fellow soldier, named James Conroy. WHEN the New York resignations were announced, Ben Hill remarked that "now would be a good time to elect the Senate officers." The Democrats, however, will not take advantage of the situation. THE Fort Pierre Journal has again made its appearance, and reminds its readers that the blockade at that point lasted 110 days. WITH this issue the Weekly TRIBUNE bids adieu to its eighth year. The Troy Farm. Every one in Dakota Territory is at present deeply interested in crop pros pects, and to such the following letter from the proprietors of the Troy Farm will be worth reading: TROT FARM, KIDDER COUNTY, T). T., May 16. To the Editor of the Tribune: Seeding began on thi« farm on Monday, April 18th, and & finish was made on Tuesday, May 10th. Would have got over the ground a week earlier, but was de layed waiting for drills, with which I proposed experimecting on land in crop last year. They came finally, and we used them on nearly 1,000 acres. Grain put in with the drills came up quicker and looks better than that sown broad cast, and, if the season should be a dry one. I think will give better results. So far, I am fully satisfied with the experiment. We have growing 1,400 acres of wheat, 200 of barley, and 200 of oats, and April-sowed grain is looking better than at this date last year. Pres ent indications are very favorable for a full aver age crop, notwithstanding ihe "scary" symp toms a month ago. With high temperature and frequent rains, vegetation fairly booms. J.V.D. How Some Editors Live. A Vienna paper says: "James Gordon Bennett, a very rich American, has settled himself in the former residence of Henry IV, and his extravagances, made light by the ownership of millions, have not in any degree damaged Pau. For example, Bennett engaged the Yi enna Capelmeister Strauss, with his en tire company, at an honoraium of 140,000 francs, to come to Pau, where he played a series of concerts at which all Pau were guests. Mr. Mackay, the American nabob, who, with his soirees, costumed balls, etc., has busied all Paris, came with his wife to Pau. To honor them Mr. Bennett ar_ ranged a ball, engaging private express trains which brought from Paris and other cities, also from the neighborhood ot Pau, a brilliant company. The people called this ball "the diamond bail," for at no opportunity save this and here was it possible to behold such a wealth of dia monds. "Ii was not mere dewdrops that sparkled and glanced, it was a Niagara of brilliants and diamonds,.' said a member of the company^ who pitied Mrs. Mackay because her treasures of jewelry almost weighted ber down." Kcw Mexican Indian Atrocittc*. A letter recently received by a Denver (Col.) lady, from her husband, who is at Fairview, N. M., contains the following: "The Indians are very troublesome. They nailed a four-months-old baby to a tree, alive. They then killed the mother, and forced a rifle barrel into her body. Mr. P., an old settler here, brought his wife in a short time ago. He was at tacked, by Indians, and had a very nar row escape,being set upon by them when On his journey in. When the Indians fired, Mr. P. threw his wife down on the bottom of the wagon and started the horses on a run. He had several holes shot through his clothes, and had some of the spokes shot out of the wagon wheels. He got through with only a bul let in his arm. Mrs. P. is the only woman in camp." A Chinamen's Vote. (Indianapolis Journal.) An almon-eyed Celestial, the proprietor of a South Illinoio-street laundr}', pre sented liimsilf at the Seventeenth-ward polls yesterday afternoon and entered the chute to vote, ticket in hand. John handed his ticket to one of the Republi can challengers and asked if it was all right. An inspection developed the fact that although the ticket purported to bear the names of the Republican candidates, the names of Democratic candidates had been pasted over the name of every Re publican. This was explained to the Chinaman, who seemed perplexed at the situation. He explained-in "pigeon Eng lish" that he wanted a "Glaltield ticket," and was much surprised on being informed that Garfiel 1 was n-t a candidate for Mayor. The matter was finally explained to him and he voted a Straight. Republican ticket. Den't Despise the Newsboys. [Troy Times.] A prominent and prosperous business man of Troy, recounting his earliest ex periences recently, said that he com menced his business career in the hum ble capacity of a newsboy for the Times. He commenced by buying five papers, and within two WPeks sold twenty-five every night and fifty every Saturday. From this little beginning he grew into a news agent, laid by nearly $300 in two years, learned a trade, started out for himself, and to-day has a thrifty business and a snug bank account. So, don't despise the newsboys who offer you the Times. Some of them make as much as a dollar a day, and have books at the sav ings bank, which indicate what a news boy can do.

CHICAGO, May 18.—The Inter Ocean has receivctl a letter from its correspon dent who accompanied Gen. Grant to Mexico in which it is announced that the General has received the railroad conces sion which he went there to obtain from the Mexican governor. The letter says: ''The control sought by the General in be half of his company has been thoroughly canvassed, by the government, and its ac ceptance is practically determined upon, and as soon as certain necessary formali ties are completed action will be taken by the government in accordance there with. Gen. Grant was never more popu lar with Mexico than to-day. A telegram of welcome from the Mexican President awaited his arrival at Vera Cruz Ex Senator Caffee and U. S. Grant, Jr., are now on their way to the United States. The engineers sent out b)' Capt. Aids some to make surveys for the proposed ship railway across the Isthmus, have discovered two practicable routes, one by way of Taufa Pass and the other by the way of Chorda. They are not only prac ticable but both of them are more favora ble for the construction of the road than had been anticipated. The Captain has been given the contract of designing a system of improvement for the harbor and Vera Cruz, and is busily engaged in airanging plans for that work, and the additional legislation sought by him on subject of his inter.oceanic ship railway. Missing Steamers. SAN FRANCISCO, May 19.—No news yet of the steamer Slate of California. The British s'eamer "Barnard Castle," which left here six days ago for Moniteo, has not yet arrived. There are some fears that the two ships may have come into collision. Insurance of the cargo of the Californian was granted yesterday at from ten to twenty-five per cent., but to-day in the same companies is refused at fifty per cent. The steamer had about fifty-five cabin passengers and sixty in the steer age. Coining To Trial. PHILADELPHIA,May 10.—It has been de cided by Judge Butler not to try the cases of Black, Frank, Arbuckle and Cason, ac cused of star route frauds in Texas, at the present term of court.
