McLean came as far west as Fargo on yesterday's train from the east. He will devote a few days to the indictments now pending be fore the grand jury. The TRIBUNE was in error in stating that there would be a recruit drill at the armory last even ing. It was postponed on account of the con cert held there until this evening. The suggestion made by a correspondent that Sibley Island be set apart as a public park is a good one. It iB covered with a fine growth of timber and is two miles long by half a mile wide. H. J. Whitley will leave on Sunday for a six weeks' visit to his old home in Michigan. He will talk "Dakota" during his absence and will undoubtedly turn a number of colonies Dakota ward. Mr. and Mrs. M.

The council may retaliate by ordering all telephone poles removed from the streets. The TRIBUNE wishes to correct an impression that the county accounts are not all right.

Mo housekeeper who has flavored a cake, pud ding or cream with Dr.Price's Special Flavoring Extracts, will ever return to the use of the cheap flavoring extracts that flood the market. One trial will satisfy that for purity and deli cious natural flavor Dr. Price's are alone in the market. Governor Ordway has informed Commis sioner General Morehead, of the world's fair at New Orleans, that Dakota will make an exhibit of her mineral and agricultural resource" and he could safely say that their exhibit of natural curiosities, such as petrified wood and bodies of mammoth pre-historic animals, would be of marvelous interest. The Bozeman Evening Conrier says the large folding doom at each end of the Bozeman tun nel are kept closed, exoept when trains are due, in order to keep the water inside from freezing.

After a few days country life, John Yegen haa returned from his farm on Apple creek. Mr. Yegen owns the famous Salisbury farm, and it is feued that he will raise so many turnips next year that the other farmers will be unable to sell him any for bis city trade.

If youoould stand here and gaze upon that noble edifice as we can, Mr. Journal, you would wonder that we do not harp on it a great deal w. Such a stupendously magnificent free gift to a people wva never before heard of in the annals of thia great country. A thousand harp istera scattered about its towering and ponderoua walls oould not do it jnstioe.

Geo. D. Hanscom, business manager of the TR'BCNK. returned last evening from a visit of several weeks to his family who aria spending the winter in California. While absent he gained several pounds in flesh, but is neverthe less glad to return to the bracing and exhilarat ing atmosphere of Dakota. Frank Clark, of the firm of Clark & Co., wholesale fruit and commission merchants, Minneapolis, arrived last evening to look after some Bismarck consignments. He is a genial, pleasant gentleman, and ships goods to Bis marck because, as he says, "it is bound to be the beet city northwest of Minneapolis." If housewives will m»ke sweeter, lighter, and more digestible biscuits, cakes, etc., with Dr. Price's powdeir than can be made with other kinds, is it not an inoontestible proof of its pur ity and greater excellence? Give Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder a trial iu the oven and we will warrant it to give perfect satisfaction. Capt. Stephen Baker, U. 8. A., formerly sta tioned at Bismarck, and who yet retains large property interests in the capital city, arrived last evening from a four months' tour of Europe. Capt. Baker left Bismarck in September, and contemplated making a tour of the continent with J. Wetherby, but arrived there ahead of him. He left Mr. Wetherby a few weeks since, en route to Italy, and states that he is enjoying himself and will arrive home about April 1st. About this time every year the following item is a good reminder of the duty that the people of Bismarck owe to others: "Every citizen should constitute himself committee of one to extend aid and c: urtesy to those who come among us in search of locations or as casual visitors. Especially those who start in some needed branch of business should receive atten tion and encouragement. Oft times the man who will hesitate, will c&Bt bis lot with a town whose citizens give him a cordial reception, for it makes him feel that he will be welcome, and with many this feeling is needed to remove the almost universal repugnance to starting in a strange town." The masquerade party and supper to be given by the officers of Fort Lincoln occurs this even ing, and those fortunate enough to secure an invitation are sure to attend. Ambulances for the convenience of those who have no convey' ances will start from the postoffice this evening at 7:30 o'clock. Persons who desire to avail themselves of this transportation so generously tendered by the officers of the post will please notify Capt. Wright at the United States Bignal office before 11 a. m.. Lieutenant Alexander Ogle, Seventeenth in intry, came up from Yates Tuesday. Alexan der is one ot the pioneer soldiers of the far west. He came, many years ago, from his home in the mountains of Pennsylvania to the wilds of Da kota. During the Sioux campaign of 1876 Alex ander wa adjutant general of the forces in and around Fort Lincoln, including the great strong hold and key to the situation, Fort Clarke, or as it was afterwards called, Fort Gurley. Upon many nights Alexander and the writer have chased the Sioux over the hills around Fort Lin coln, and always captured the enemy in the club room, concealed in a black bottle. Then and there we destroyed him, wiped him out'as it were. Since those days Alexander has taken unto himself a wife atd instead of chasing Sioux he walks the floor at night singing bin old army sons "Go to sleep, my baby darling." Alexander says the one pair he has now are worth more than any two pair he ever sat be hind. The Lieutenant is quaitered at. the Sher idan. Mr. A. C. Jordan, associate editor of the Minneapolis Tribune, arrived last evening, and made arrangements whereby jhia paper will hereafter receive complete telegraphic reports from Bismarck, the capital city of Dakota. The Tribune has received anew perfecting press and new type, and has formed a combination with leading eastern journals, whereby it secures the use of a special wire to all important news centers at and east of Chicago. In return for this service apart of the Tribune contract is that it shall furnish to the eastern newspapers in exchange the news of the entire northwest Mr. Jordan is now on an extended tour, arran ging for such service, and the liberal terms paid and the number of agencies established, will secure for the Tribune the most complete review of northwestern news. The Tribune will also make a special feature of collecting in the east news of speoial interest to the northwest, and its circulation will largely increase. Mr. Jordan has been for fifteen or twenty years in the news paper harnum, and ten years ago assisted Col. Lounsberry for a few weeks in conducting the weekly TBIBUNE. He has not been in Bismarck since that time, and naturally notes many changes. That portion of the city now known as Fisher's addition, was once filed upon as a ninim by Mr. Jordan, but after investing $2 in the enterprise, he abandoned it, and now nat urally regrets his action. Mr. Jordan expects to return east this morning, but an effort will be fpaHp to induce him to spend the day in making a nota of the wonderful advanoement in growth and civilization of the capital city. Real Estate Sales. Every day, as spring approaches the sale of real estate increase and there ia already a large inquiry that will soon lead to a brisk demand. Yesterday Mr. H. J. Whitley sold sixteen lota in Steele, Bix to Mr. Charles Benardof Pittsburg, Pa., and ten to a New York gentleman. This closed out the last of the lots in Steele, Whitley & Clock's addition which was put onto the market one year ago. Since that time Mr. Whitley »lnn« haa sold nearly 936,000 worth of lota from the addition and they have all now passed into second bands at increased prioes. Messrs. Whit ley & McNeal also sold yesterday a quarter sec tion of land near Williamsport. The Visit to Mandan. Abont fifty gentlemen and twenty-five ladies boarded the special train for Mandan Tuesday night to aooept the invitation so kindly extended to them to participate in the opening of the roller rink in that city. All took their skates •V •_.-. 1 a ~. "it- THE BISMARCK WEEKLY TRIBUNE. with them, and immediately upon arrival pro ceeded to the rink, where they were tendered free admission. An hour or two waa pleasantly spent in the fascinating amusement, about twenty-five having pnt on akates while the remainder joined the interested spectators. Bnt few Mandan people were present, and scarcely half a dozen dared venture upon the frolicsome rollers in the preaenoe of their guests, evidently preferring to take their first tumbles in private. The Mandan rink haa a fine, hard-wood floor, bnt is so much smaller than the Bismarck rink, that the Bismarck skatera could not do them selves justice. It ia said that the Mandan peo ple during the summer will erect a rink as large or larger than the Atheneum. Valley City Times: A ltter from E. P. Wells has been reoeived by B. W. Benson, in regard to a suggestion as to the advisability of a meeting of the territorial committee, at which the place of meeting of the territorial convention for the election of delegates to the Chicago convention shall be settled. So far Huron seems to be in the lead, and being central betw sen the two sec tions, may get the prize. St. Paul Globe: There Is a great deal of grati fication felt in North Dakota at the information recently reoeived from parties who have called upon President Harris and General Manager Oakes, in New York, to the effect that these gen tlemen intend to inquire olosely into the needs and interests of the people along the line of the Northern Pacific, and make tariff rates that will be entirely satisfactory to the country through which it passes, and aid in the development of the agricultural resources with emigrant rates that will not deter settlers. The Pioneer Press says: General Emigration Commissioner Groat, of the Northern Pacific, is getting out a sheet containing notes and com ments from newspapers on the Northern Pacific country. Ic will contain a summary of Gen. H. V. Boyn ton's letters to the Cincinnati Commer cial Gazette, Col. E. P. Mitchell's letter to the New York Sun, an extract from Henry Ward Beecher's Thanksgiving Day sermon, and sta tistics and items of interest pertaining to Min nesota, Montana, northern Dakota, Idaho, Ore gon and Washington Territory. The Polo Game. With the exception of the evening of the mas querade party a larger audience never assembled in the roller rink than the one of Wednesday, attracted by the announcement of the first pub lic contest between the two polo clubs of this city. The hall was filled at an early hour and-at 8 o'clock the spectators were requested to retire to the gaUery and stage in order that the two clubs might have the entire floor for the contest and to prevent accidents. The game consists in having a wicket or gate at each end of the hall which is guarded by the respective clubs, and a ball started from the center of the room mast pass through one of the wickets to score the first point in the game. The club whose gate the ball parses through loses. The struggle of the opposing members to drive the ball through one gate and prevent its being driven through the gate Which they guard is interesting and exciting. The "Jewells" and the "Clippers" were the opposing clubs last evening and there was of course great interest manifested in de termining whioh should win the first game of the kind ever played in Bismarck. The ball was buffetted about for some minutes, at times being completely lost in the struggling knot of skaters but at last was driven by the Jewells through the gate guarded by the Clippers. Tbe second inning resulted in the same way, and the game being the best two out of three, the Jew ells were declared the winnersof the game. The tbird inning was however played for the amuse ment of the spectators and resulted in a victory for the Clippers. The members of the winning club are: John Bain, captain James Macnider, Tog Wilson, E. W. Donahue, H. H. Palmer, Harry Wetherby, Fred Mclntyre and B. Race. A Carious .Letter. R-'gister Rea of the United States land office gets a good many curious letters regarding ap plications for land. Among the number is the following received yesterday: LITTLE MISSOURI, D. T., Feb. 3,1881. J. A. R.— Dear Sir: I, Adolp EyBaud, do hereby apply to enter under section 2289 of the revised etatutes of the United States, Medora township 81 Marquis de Mores neighbor con taining 160 acres going up the river.

Jessie Taylor. Besa Schreck. Blanche Hussey. Elsie Davis. Bertha Davis. Sophie Edberg. Burr Kress. Lee Kress. Louie Schreck. Theodore Taylor. Jacob Atweil. A Deserved Compliment. Tbe skating of little Miss Eda Wakeman at tracted a great deal of attention at the roller rink last evening. She is an accomplished as well as a graceful skater.—| Mandan Pioneer. This is a deserved compliment to a sweet little maiden. It haabsen but a comparatively short time since little Eda first attempted to skate, yet she can now move swiftly about the rink and keep pace with the older skaters, and move, too, with an easy grace that pleases every one who sees her.- It will not be long ere she will tax the skill of some of the experts in the more difficult movements. Proved Up. Tbe following persons made final proofs at the United States land office yesterday: Fred C. Stevens, of Carrington, on the south east quarter of section 10, town 146, range 67. Christ Hendricson, of Carrington, on tte northwest quarter of section 31, town 146, range 67. KnuteB. Olson, of Carrington, the southwest quarter oftsection 8, township 146, range 67. David T.

To THB EDITOB: Knowing that yon are anxious to defend the right on all occasions, and give blame where blame ia due, I with you A I*, 'r^PyVCK* J| to be kind enough to insert the following oon tradiotion of a report that ia circulating around town to tbe effeet that I,tbe nndenigned,was the one to give information to the offioer iu com mand at Fort Lincoln, in reference to the taking and cutting of wood on Sibley Island. Now, I take this opportunity of contradicting that report an! emphatically deny having had any ommunioation whatever with any person either civil or military, and defy anyone to prove the above named accusation. Hoping yon will be kind enough to give thia the prominence it de serves in your next issue, 1 remain sir, Yours respectfully, THOBMXON The regular services are as follows: Preaching every Sabbath at 11 a. m. and 7:30 p. m. Sab bath school at 3 p. m., under tbe management of Harvey Harris assisted by an able corps of earnest officers and teaohers. Prayer meeting every Thursday evening at 7:30 p. m. There is also a prayer service on Sabbath morning at 10 o'clock, conducted by C. H. Phelps. To all these services the public generally are cordially invited.

Pierce all of whom gladly unite with the pastor in giving a hearty welcome to strangers. The Party. The first of the series of parties given by the Governor's Guard last evening was not largely attended, although a very large nimber of tickets bad been sold. There has been so many social entertainments of late and so many are announced for the near future that the busi ness men felt content last evening with pur chasing a ticket and not participating in tbe festivities. It is a pleasure to be able to an nounce that financially the party was an im mense success, and also that the comparatively few who attended the party declare that tbe music, tbe floor, the management and every thing was perfect and tbe enjoyment of the evening could only have been increased by a larger at tendance. Many who purchased tickets contem plate attending the masquerade ball at Fort Lincoln tonight, and for that reason only rested last evening. Undoubtedly tbe remaining three of the series of parties will be largely attended. To the Public. A mysterious questionable and almost un known secret organization, sailing nnder the high sounding title of the "Knights of the Mystic Star Chamber," has falsely published what pur ports to be article IX of the declaration of the principles of the Knights of Labor. As an offi cer and member of that order I desire to de nounce the purported quotation as false in every particular. The declaration of principles of the order and tLe constitution and by-laws may be inspected to prove the assertion above made. Article IX of the declaration of principles of the knights of labor reads: "The abolishment of the contract system on National, state and municipal work." The above, or anything else published or up held by the knights of labor, cannot be con strued to represent such principles as are quoted as a part of our creed by the mystic star cham ber. Furthermore, I desire to enquire aa to the origin and membership of this self-conceited or der. Noneof the Bismarck members of labor organizations ever heard of any other lodge of knights of the mystic star chamber exoept the Bismarck lodge, and extensive correspon dence has failed to secure any information from any one who haa ever heard of the order. If it baa a membership outside of Burleigh county, will the organization that haa' aent forth tbe malicious and untruthful statement name a few of the members? The knights of labor will not admit improper characters into membership. Can the mystic star chamber members say aa mnoh? B.F. GMDDBW, t&s'Ssi MABBLE. Hethodlst £piseopal Church. The Bismarck M. E. Church is centrally lo cated on the corner of Fifth and Thayer streets opposite the court house. It waa erected by the untiring efforts of Bev. J. M. Bull in the year 1880. It is a large commodious structure of the gotHic style of architecture with corner tower and steeple. At the time it waa built the so ciety waa small, and were unable to finish and furnish the interior as was intended, although the citizens rallied grandly to their support. This has necessitated a rest for a couple of years, the society worshipping in it in tbe meantime in its unfinished condition. Daring the inter val the ladies of the congregation have not been idle, but from time to time have held sociables and given entertainments for the pur pose of completing the church as originally de signed. They have succeeded so well that already the unfinished ceiling and rough walls under the magic touch of the fresco artist and knight of the paint brush are becoming things of beauty, and it. is to be hoped that in the no distant future the entire edifice will be so finished and urnisbed as to compare favorably with any church in the northwest. The first Methodist minister ap pointed to Bismarck was Rev. Geo. W. Barnett, of the Minnesota conference. This appoint ment wastmade, September 24, 1878, and con tinued for one year, when be was obanged to St. Charles, Minn., and Bev. J.M. Bull appointed to Bismarck. At this time there was an organiza-^ tion of fifteen members worshiping in the city hali. Rev. Bull was continued the full pastoral term of three years, being abundant in labors and endearing himself to the hearts of the peo ple, while with hands and brain he toiled to erect a suitable temple of worship. His suc cessor waa Rev. J. C. Rhodes, a transfer from the Erie conference. Pa., who, on account of the illness of his wife, remained but nine months. This left the pulpit vacant till November 1st, when the present pastor, D. C. Plannett, of th? Erie conference, was secured as a supply. Since that time regular servi ies have been held every 8abbath, and tbe congregations show considera ble increase, A series of revival meetings have been in progress since the close of the union services following tbe week of prayer, ia which there is marked religious interest. But Organizer for Dakota. The Friends. Mr. ft. T, Bmtley. a member of the estimable community of Quakers at Sandy Springs, Md., •MB •ayabe was severely affeoted by rheumatism In bia right hand Mr. Bentley applied St. Jacobs Oil, the gnat pain earn, and by ita continued use, in a short time, waa completely cured. Fort Yates Correspondence. It has been currently reported here that the young ladies of the capital city ate to hold a Leap Year ball in the near future, but according to the present outlook on the reaervation it will in a few days hence be extremely difficult to find a sufficient supply of the "batch" nlmmit in and around Bismarck to make np a nickle ynm-yum party, mnoh less a leap year ball, un lets, forsooth, the enterprising young ladiea of Dakota's metropolis import a considerable num ber from our eastern and more favored cities, and prevail on a few New York and Philadel" phia dudes to come west to promenade tbe out skirts of your city .for the purpose of soaring the squaws away. Two hundred and thirty-one dark eyed, pigeon-toed brunettes, dwelling near and in the vicinity of Standing Bock are de manding permission to visit the banner city and compel the batohelors to do their duty, their whole duty, and nothing bnt their duty in re gard to the interests of Bismarck. Moreover, they will have no backsliding in tbe matter. Each and every one will have to take to himself a wife. The agent haa requested me to write and let you know how tbe case stands, for he can't hold them back much longer. He is in a terri ble dilemma. If he allows them to go he will be torn asunder by the white ladies who are trying to rope in a partner for life if he holds tbem back he will be scalped by the squawB who are indignant at his trying to impede the march of civilization. Our "ladies" here having heard that there waa a number of unmarried men in Bismarck, a list of which waa published in the TRIBUNE some time since, hunted up the paper and proceeded in a body to the interpreter, Louis Primlau, ordering him to explain the whole article under pain of an instant proposal. Casting a glance over the motley crowd he was oxly too glad to do anything they wished if they dropped the proposal. When he came to tbe name of "J. B. Adams, a mainbrace of the TBIBUNE," Lone-Eyed Nel lie, second rib of Hitting Bull, champion coffee cooler and beef-mangier of the great Sioux na tion, pricked up her ears and demanded to know what a "mainbrace" was. When duly ex plained she was observed by Sway-Back Susan, the other rib, to steal silently out of the assem" bly and lasso her blanket, which had been play ing hide-and-seek with several others on the sunny aide of the council hall. She was heard to mutter, whilst bucklin? it on, that she would allow no mainbrace of an influential paper to continue outside of the holy bonds of wedlock, and if the pale-face women were chicken hearted and feared to propose, she who had whacked the old man around for the last twenty three years feared no cruBty old "batch." Even if he was bald from the tip of hiB nose to tbe nape of bis neck, he had at least the side whiskers yet. Since then she has not been seen. The gov eminent sent a squad of police to hunt her up, but she cannot be found. Yankton Bill, cross ing the Cannon Ball, saw tbe imprints of a moc casin in the snow, bnt as she wears her beels pretty well forward on tbe outside, he could not tell whether itfwas Lone Eye Nellie going north or some bandy-legged galoot going south, but is inclined to believe it was her. We are anxious to leain if the Twinkler has twinkled his last twinkle if so, Sitting Bull has decreed that he and his whole band should wear tbe festive robe for six weeks, and abstain from cooking white men's coffee for the space of two hours, Fort Yates time. revenous a not moutens, &• as the French say. After Louis Primeau explained the article thoroughly and disappeared behind several soap boxes, where he knew they dare not follow him, the squaws held a meeting and the following resolutions were passed without one dissenting voice: WHEBE&S, God, in His infinite wisdom, has decreed every fourth year a leap year, and civilized nations have decided that young ladies can, with perfect propriety, demand the hand and heart of any single gentleman with out their daring to refuse and WHEBEAS, The Bismarck TBIBUNE, having tbe interests and population of our capital city at heart, doing all in its power to further the former and increase the latter be it Resolved, That we, 231 brunettes, of all sizes, ages, conditions of life and pigeontoedness, wend our way to Bismarok and corral all the batchelorsin and around that famous city. Two more squaws, Good-Wood Mollie and Toe-Nail Peggie, have left reservation. They are supposed to be in quest of Messrs. B. B. Mellon and Lee Eisenberg. "CATKA." [NOTE.—Mr. Adams, of the TBIBUNE, was called east last evening on important business. He left on this morning's train.—ED.] To Canadian Subscribers. The Bismarck postoffice was made an Inter national money-order office on the 1st of May, 1883. Orders can be obtained at any Canadian International money order office, payable at Bismarck.
