present state of public opinion, cranks
stend the best show."

Bismarck Tribune: In the case of the
division of Dakota, of course the Red Ri­
ver country will control, for some years,
the political destinies of the new territory,
and it is to be hoped that such a man as
Judge Barnes, who is just and impartial
as well as able, may be chosen for dele­
gate in congress. The great public expe
rienca of Mr. Barnes and his extended
acquaintance eminently fits him for this
Dosition. and it is sincerely to be hoped
that lie will consent to the use of his
name.
Lisbon Star: Horace Austin, a register
of the land office, has given notice that
the government plat of township 132,
range 23, in Ransom county, has been de­
posited at the land office, and that filings
of homesteads, pre-emptions and tree
claims upon the same are now in order.
There is little doubt but that the chican­
ery of Fargoites has already robbed the
public of the benefits of the tree culture
act, but homesteads and pre-emptions are
plentiful and may now be taken. This is
one of the best townships in Ransom
county. The St. P., M- & M. R. R. is al­
ready graded partly through the township,
and trains will run early in the spring,
the soil is all that could be desired, and
there are no stones to impede the culira
tion of the soil. The land can be inspec­
ted now as well as at any season of the
year, as there no enow whatever, and
the earth thrown from the gopher boles
will indicate the character of the soil.

Mr. Dunstan came inSi'fhe Alert office
Saturday afternoon to arrange hia sub­
scription for the Daily and in course of
conversation Atplaitifd some points in re­
lation to hia addition ft the town. He
said he was continually be*rt by parties
•win {ranted to bu van acre, a half acre, a
quarter acre, or +nough to build a house
on. These requeaflfcs became so numerous
that ha finally concluded to lay out a por­
tion of his land into town lots aud then
parties desirous of buying could be accom­
modated. This was a ccordingly done
and be has some of the best residence
lots in Jamestown which he is selling at
reasonable figures. His idea is to furnish
lots at a reasonable price so that parties of
modirate means can afford to build on
them. He has sold a number and in some
instances a block at a time. The addition
joins Joses & Vennum's, and is high and
dry. Through the column's of the Daily
Alert he notifies all that the lots arc for
sale and those desirous of getting* choice
should buy at once. Mr. Dunstan lives
on liis land and a personal interview or
communication by letter will be promptly
attended to.
