At pre.-int there seems to be no pro­
visions in our territorial btatutes making
it unlawful tor candidates to act upon the
board ot canvassers, and 111 our opinion it
is high time on:- legislature took borne
measure toward 111 uiiitacturing a law pro­
viding that in cases where the ofliceis ot
tin canvassiug board are candidates other
persons equally responsible and capable
should be appointed. As the law now 13
a candidate win occupies a prominent
position 011 the cmvLissing board has au
admirable opportunity to count hmidelt
111 whether elected or not, tnus dehuud™

would appeal" that 111 such cases a3 refti
red to in tiiTj foretioing that the district

imbued with the authority to act as
member of the boaid, and by thus oiliei

us to whether their wishes will be re­
spected or not. Such a latr would also
relieve him from unjust tuspici :n. Our

In addition to a complete and able ren­
dering of the excellent progsam, which
we publish in this, issue, there was an
appropriate intern.irglingot oliitr exei

Had we suffieiei.t space to admit peison

to cofflint nt in a highly complimentary
manner upon the talent displaced by the
several participants in the rendering of the
rious exercises of the evening, but as
we can not do so we will ouly add that
the afluir was a very credible one, aud wo
hope ere long to have the pleasure r.f an­
nouncing another entertain .teat of a sim­

and to continue the tumult until it would

It is understood that the elite dancing
club will hold cheir parties, in th3 future,
in the third story of the Dakota House.
The change is prob-ibiy made forcauveu
