Richland County has contracted with P. J. Pauley & Son for a $15,000 court house. From six to twelve boats are constantly loading at the new landing, foot oi Main street. If anyone wants to go to Mandan and eturn the same day he should start the liight before. There is to be a public auction of con demned horses and mules at Fort Lincoln on the 28th inst. Eight bids were received for grading llie bridge approach, and seven bidders »re disappointed. Dan Eisenberg will soon begin the erec 1 ion of a fine residence corner ot Fourth %nd Thayer streets. The Fargo Argm says the Bismarck JAILY TIUBUNK is "agreeably surprising in its push and vim." The warehouses of the railroad com pany at the old landing have "been taken io\vn and moved away. Bismarck is the most orderly city in Ihe United States—for one that has such an undesirable reputation. The Bismarck Korth Pacific switch en gine has two broken springs, but is too "busy to go to Brainerd lor repairs. The American citizen should get right *ip and howl when he is euchered out of the p-ivilege of voting for himself. The Woman's Missionary Society will meet at Mrs. Goffs to-day, May 20, at 3 o'clock. All ladies are cordially invited. udge Moody has given notice of his inability to attend and lias postponed the bession of the supreme court until Octo ber. Charley Williams has just completed two line cottages on Third street. He rented them long before they wero fin ished. An exchange says the government has i.ukliased the Mary Barues, a St. Paul steamer, for service on the upper Mis. fcouri. The bread ration at Fort Buford has Ji.een IJcreased to twenty-two ounces, on irccount of the scarcity of vegetables at that post. Morgan, the prisonor reported in yes terday'® paper as dying, is better, and blight hopes of his recovery are now en tcitained. BUmarck variety actresses evidently »ke money. One of them—a new ain \al--b«4* sent to her home by express $140 vilhin two days. No one has as yet explained the mys tery of the stick "found upon the river 1 ark, announcingtho suicide by drown ii.a ot A. "W. Mill. The special meeting of the Board of Counts* Commissioners that was to be held Tuesday, has been postponed, until "Wednesday, June 1st. The telegraph ofiice ut the depot has been temporarily removed to the passenger waitimr r«xm, until the promised enlarged quarter® can be secuied. The Pierre Journal savs Ben Ash has received a breaking plow. The fact that it is the second one received in the coun ty .uakes the statement interesting. A large first-clafs boarding house,with reasonable ra'es, would be better than a dmsen irold mines to the Bismarck land lord or landlady that has the temerity to make the venture. Fft'tn a rough estimate made at the last f'nuLcil meeting, it was staled that the revenues of the city were about $4,000 tief annum. The salary list us then pre pared but not adopted, amounted to $4,180. The Sawtelle Combination, now in Hhe tixth week of their engagement at the Opera House,will present, to-night, Fan cfaon the Cricket," the coniedy drama in which Maggie Mitchel has. made fortune and fame.

The train did not leave Fargo until noon. At 6 o'clock Tuesday afternoon there were 269 loaded freight-Mrs in the Bis marck yards, to say nothing of the emp ties. The freight business constitutes a continual boom. The aggregation of buildings lo be oc cupied by the military depaitment head quarters, recently removed from St. Paul to Fort Snelling, it is proposed to name after ex-Secretary of War Kamsey. The steamboat men complain at the de lays to which they are subjectediu receiv ing freight from the cars, but when the new warehouses are completed it is ex pected that everything will run smoothly, French & IGranberry, of Maiiaan, have yester(]ayt dfic Road with 500,000 brick for their shops, roundhouse and depot at Glen dive. They will also furnish 300,000 to Hager Bros. Owing to an insufficient appropriation, the Land Office officials will have to get along with 40 per cent of their salaries until Congress again meets. This is hard on the "boys but they have concluded not to strike, or kick. Parties in Bismarck contract to furnish and set out thrifty shade trees at seventy live cents each. There is no excuse if tliev can be furnished at that price, for neglect in failing to beautify the city and enhance the value of residence prope rty. A substantial but artistic iron fence is to be placed around three sides of the Court-House grounds, and a. high and close board fence will inclose the fourth side, and shut out from view the un sightly rear of the buildings in front. Work commenced, yesterday, under the supervision of street commissioner Robi dou, on the road lo the levee. The Coun cil is to be congratulated on its prompt action in this matter. A good road to the steamboat landing has been sorely needed for years. As many as 200 very fine shade trees have beenVit out on and about the Court House giounds. The work was done un der the supervision of street commissioner Amos Robidcau, who is always attentive to his duties and is imbued with the spirit of improvement. B. H. Gilbert, of Minneopolis, will go to Mandan to-day, in the interest of the merchants who desire to buy fine cigars, fruits and confectionery. The TKIBUNE knows by experience that Mr. Gilbert sells the best cigars offered for sale on the' line of the North Pacific. Sam Whitney has changed his pro gramme, and now announces that the minstrel and variety part of the entertain ment will close at 10 v. m.. after which the drama will be given. This evening Miss Edith Valentine makes a first ap pearance for the season. W. A. Hollembaek has just finished the arrangement of his new stock of goods. Mr. Hollembaek prides himself upon having and keeping constantly on hand as complete a stock of the finest toilet articles, notions, fancy goods, etc., as can be found anywhere in the East. Messrs. Bigelow, Carnahan, White, Leisure, Howe and others went down on the bbttom lands last evening and shot at glass balls thrown from a trap. Carnahan came off victorious bv one ball,and the re mainder managed to bring down two or three freight-cars and the new railroad warehouse. The Pioneer Press, says: Yst-relay, two or three land seekers from Canada went on the North Pacific to Bismarck, to look over the lands of the company If they can be suited, they will buy large tracts and lease them out to farm tenants, whom they will secure in Canada, in col onies." Wm. T. Kennedy and D. IT. Hyland, proprietors of the Windsor Hotel, have dissolved partnership, as will be seen by a notice elsewhere. Mr. Kennedy will continue to conduct the popular caravan sary, and will make several improve ments that will add to the comfort and convenience of the traveling public. One of the Canadian police deserted be fore arriving at Bismarck, and the re mainder were closely guarded and march ed. from the landing to the Red Cloud about two o'clock this morning. Their horses were unloaded at the Government '•shoot" at midnight and will not be taken aboard the boat until this morning. "Mother," remarked a Bismarck girl, "I think Harry must be going to propose tome." "Why so, my daughter?" quer ried the old lady, laying down her spec tacles, while he face beamed Hke the moon in its fourteenth night. "Well, he asked me this evening if I wasn't tired of living with such a menagerie as you and dad." The importance of Bismarck as a ship ping point is recognized bj* the Sioux Ciiv Journal, which says: "The ton:iage on the river is all being rushed to Bismarck, the government freight being delivered there this season before it is at points lower down the river. The Far West, Rose Bud and Josephine have gone from Yankton without waiting to take any freight to Bpeak of." A Bingle man named Morgan, now con fined in the county jail, is very ill from the effect of delirium tremens and a pro longed debauch of three moulhs duration. He is receiving the best ot medical atten dance and care, but it is believed that he cannot live, lie came to Bismarck some two or three years ago, and has since been employed on the extention. Three trains arrived at Bismarck at 11:80 last evening. First came the pay car and a sleeping coach, aud this was followed by an extra consisting of three coaches, with thirty horses and eighty-six Canadian police aud their baggage. Then came the regular passenger with the mails, express, and three coach^ loads of tired aud belated individuals. Howard B. Wiley, Alfred Bircheit a"d James L. Hogan. all of Detroit, Mich., have taken pre-emptions and homesteads near the Tiov frnn, in Kidder County, and have made arrangements for the lo cation of a town site on said farm: They are live, energetic young men, and pro pose to create a boom and have a post office established at their new town. The business of the Bismarck office re quire* another telegraph, operator. The number of dispatches received is so rap idly increasing, and the adding of the Associated Press report for, the DAILY Tsificrme, make it impossible for. the number ot operators now employed to dispatch the business with the prompt ness and certainty that the company and it* patrons desire. THE RIVER. The water at up river points is falling. The crew of the steamer Peck receive $35 per month. The steamer General Terry will leave for the Yellowstone to-day. The Helena has arrived at Benton, and the Far West is reported at the Coal Banks. The Batchelor will leave Bismarck for the Yellowstone on the 22d of the present month. The Montana, Capt. Buesen, is opera tin tr in the big 7 Line between St. Louis, Huntington and Pittsburgh. The steamer Red Cloud, Baker Line, arrived Sunday morning and left tor Fort Benton this morning. There were six steamboats at the levee an( as taken a contract to furnish the iNortli ra- _s ti,0Ufirh there had been one hun- much bustle and activ- ity as though there dred. The Red Cloud leaves for Benton early this morning, with ninety Canadian po lice. thirty horses, and several tons of freight. The Benton left for Benton at 4 o'clock Monday morning, loaded to the water's edge with freight, and carrying a fair pas senger list. The steamer Rosebud, of the Coulson line, from below, arrived yesterday. She will load for above and probably get away Saturday. The steamer C. K. Peck left for up river at 7 o'clock Monday morning with 400 tons of government and private freight and thirty passengers. The steamer Eclipse left tor Keogh and the Yellowstone river yesterday afternoon, carrying a big load of government freight and over 100 passengers. The steamboat representatives all sleep with one eye open, and all represent the fastest,safest and most popular lines from everywhere to anywhere. The Pierre Journal says the Baby Mine has made its appearance at that point, and the Northwestern stage company has char tered the steam ferry, Joseph Leighton. The family of Capt. O'Connor, the rep resentative of the Northwest Transporta tion Company, has arrived, and will at once commence housekeeping for the summer. The Pacotah, of the Coulson Line, the largest and finest steamboat on the Mis souri River, arrived from St. Louis Tues day noon. She is now loading for Ben ton, and will leave to- day Capt. Williams, of the steamei Red Cloud, took up river ninty men, thir ty horses and ten tons of freight that will arrive from Duluth on Wednesday even ings's train. The men are members of the Canadian Mounted Police. The steamer Key West, the new addi tion to the Couison line, arrived at St. Louis Tuesday 10th and left for Fort Ben ton on Friday, Capt. Mart Coulson in com mand. The Key West made the run from New Orleans to'St. Louis in seven days against a rising river. The Josephine, the first steamer of the season ef the Coulson line, arrived Mon day afternoon, and will depart upon the date elsewhere advertised. The Dacotah,. of the.same line, and the finest steamer on the river, passed Fort Yates at 12:15 yes terday, ana will have arrived before this morning. Among the passengers for points above on board the palatial Dacotah we note Messrs. G. W. Rose, E. J. Farrell, W. H. Burgess and his most exoellent wife, Mrs. Clendenin, and many others. The Dacotah sets sail at 10 a. m., with about 700 tons of freight and a most handsome passenger list. Johnny Ward, known from Florida's sunny coast to Benton as a famous caterer, will see that the passen gers want for nothing in his department. The Cincinnati Marine Journal says: "Com. Kountz has obtained possession of the steamer Chas. H. Tompkins by payiny cost of suit and iriving bond of $ 10,000 and promising to return the boat to Vicks burgli in ninet}' days, if his partner who owns a half interest in the boat and against whose interest in the boat libel was filed and detained, does not pay one Murray F.'Sinith, who libelled said part ner's half interest. If Commodore Kountz is compelled to return the boat she will sold." «»i Is it Stilcide Mi. C. S. Weaver, Monday brought to THK TIUKUXE office a flat pine stick about two feet long upon one side of which had been neatly cut with a knife the following inscription: (Suicide) DROWNED MAY 12 1881 A. W. MIUI. NKAB BISMARCK, DAK. The stick was found by Mr. Weaver sticking in 4.hc mud by the river bank, and was so arranged as to attract atten tion. Mr. Weaver states that a few days since he saw a person sitting in the vicin itv of the landing of the Eclipse, near the place where the stick was found, »nd the person acted and looked so despondent that he attracted attention. Thus tar no one has been found that is able to asso ciate the name with any known person in Bismarck or vicinity and as the waters of the Missouri never give up their dead the matter is destined for the time being, at least to prove a mystery. Monday's Election. The election Monday passed off very quietly, but few people seeming to take any interest in it. As nearly as can be ascertained but few lfany votes were cast at the Painted Woods and Seventeenth Siding precincts- In the Bismarck pre cinct but 123 votes were cast upon the bond question, and 120 for Justice of the Peace. A majority of the few people who did vote were carried to the polls in car riages. The result of the election on the bond question is in favor of funding the outstanding indebtedness of Burleigh county which shall exist on the first day of July, 1881, by issuing therefor bonds of the county running ten years at eight per cent interest. The only candidates for Justice of the Peace were Hugh McDonald and Michael T. O'Connor. The result in the Bismarck precinct is ifepdrted by the judges as fol lows For funding the county debt, "yes" 128 "no" 41 Hugh McDonald* republican, for Justice of the Peace, had 118 votes, and Michael T. O'Connor, democrat, 8. The vote was very light but, as will be seen, pretty nearly unanimous. The re publicans, of course, gained an immense victory, but the compliment to Hugh Mc Donald's square-toed integrity was the most striking feature of the day. The Bridge. Few can gain an idea of the immensity ofthe high bridge now being built at Bis marck over the Missouri river. Gaze at the -height of the smoke stacks of the Da kotah,imagine abridge twenty feet above ihe top of them and 1,200 feet long, to gether with trestle work nearly a mile in length,and some idea of the bridge sturuc ture can be obtained. Over sixty cars of stone have been crossed on the transfer boat during the past two weeks for rip rappng on the east shore, and on the dike hundreds of sand bags are being piled lo complete the dam for «he June rise. When this work shall have been com pleted the dike will be about five feet higher than at present, which will raise the sandbar both above and below to an equal extent. All is life and bustle at the lauding, and in a few days over 500 men will be at wont on this, one ot the great est structures in the country. I»n 1 Contract Awarded. Before the departure of General Mana ger Haupt from Bismarck, the bids for grading the approach to the biidge were opened and the contract was awarded to Messrs. Bellows and Fogarty, well known and chief contractors of the Missouri Di vision. This award assures the early com pletion of the work as the gentlemen re ferred to have ample facilities and every means for success. The work will neces sitate the removal of fully 150,000 yards of earth, and just as large a force will be em ployecl as can conveniently be worked The approach to the bridge will be through a cut from seventy-five to 100 feet deep, the material to be removed being sand, clay and boulders. Messrs. Bellows & Fogarty have already made arrange ments for commencing work at once and desire to employ a large number of men and teams. They piopose to pay $1.75 a day lor shovelers, and $4 a day tor a man a team. These prices they consider more advantageous to the workmen than those paid at the end of the track where oats cost $1.50 per bushel and everything else is proportionately high. In the Whole Hlstoru of Medicine No preparation has ever performed snch marvcl oijs cures, or maintained so wide a reputation, as AYEH'S CHEERY PECTOHAL. which is recog nized as the world's remedy for all diseases of the throat and lungs. Its long continued series of wonderful cures in all climates has made it universally known as a safo and reliable agent to employ. Against ordinary colds, which arc the forerunners of more serious disorders, it acts speedily and surely, always relieving suffer ing. and often saving life. The protection it af fords, by its timely use in the throat and lung disorders of children, makes it an invaluable remedy to be kept always on hand in every home. No person can afford to be without it. and those who have once need it never will. From their knowledge of its composition and ef fects, Physicians use the CIIBBRT PBCTOBAL ex tensively in their practice, and clergymen rec ommend it. It is absolutely certain in its rem edial effects, and will always cure where cures are possible. For sale br all dealers. lie8Cued From Death. The following statement of William 1. Cough lm,of Somerville, Mass., is so remarkable that we beg to ask for it the attention of our readers. He says: "In the fall of1876 I was taken with a violent bleeding of the lungs followed by a se vere cough. I soon began to lose my nppetite and flesh. 1 was so weak at one time that I could not leave my bed. In the summer ol'1877 I was admitted to the city hospital. While there the doctors said I had a hole in my left luns as bm as a half dollar. I expended over a hundred dol lars iu doctors and medicines. I was so far Rone at one time a port went around that I« dead I gave up hope, but a friend told me of DU. WM HALL S BALSAM FOKT1IE LUNGS. I laughed at my friends, thinking that my case was incura ble, but I got a bottle to satisfy them, when to my surprise and gratification I commenced to feel better. Mvhope, otice dead, began to revive, and to-day I feel in better spirits than I have, tlie past three years. I write this hoping you will publish it. so that every one afflicted with ens cased luntrs will be indncud to tukd Dr» Hall's Balsam for the Lungs, and be convinced that. Consumption can be cured. I have taken two bottles and can positively say thai it aas done more good than all the other medicines have taken since my sickness My cough has almost entirely disappeared and I shall foon be able to go to work."
