On Sunday, June 3, he will preach in Chester cathedral, and on the day following will deliver a missionary address in the same place. On June 30, be will go to Canterbury cathedral, and on July 3 he will be at Lambeth, where 150 or 200 bishops, from all parts of the English speaking world, will assemble and hold sessions at short intervals dur ing the month. There will probably be some forty or more American bishops present. Among the questions to be con sidered at these meetings will be, church unity and the relations of missions to each other tbe relations of the American and English Episcopal churches with the Scandinavian German churches the mar riage and divorce laws of different coun tries the relations of the American church to English emigrants, and other kindred subjects. Later on the bishops will assemble al Aukland Castle and Dur ham cathedral. Bishop Walker will visit Oxford and Cambridge, during his stay in England, and will deliver addresses at both places. His Dakota friends wish him a pleasant trip and a safe return. A CIRCULAR OF INSTRUCTION. To School Officers and Others—Opin ions of the Board of Education. The department of public instruction has issued a circular giving information on elections provided for by the new school law. The rulings of the teriito rial board of education should be good authority on any disputed points of the school law. This circular only repeats in substance what Superintendent of In struction Dye stated in The Alert some days ago, on several points of interest connected with the coming election. The following are some of the extracts of this circular, sent to superintendents and school officeis: This circular is issued for the purpose of instructing officers in the manner of conducting the coming election and cf explaining certain clauses of the law. All rulings herein contained have been made after the most careful investigation, and consultation upon several of the points has been had with the attorney general. Being a resident of an independent district does not disqualify a person for the office of county superintendent. According to .e law, the term of all school officers expires this year. It is ad vised, therefore, that in instances where the school officer has been faithful in the discharge of his duties, that he be re elected in order that the school affairs of the territory move forward with the least possible interruption or change. Espec ially would we urge the importance of the re-election of competent clerks, treas urers and county superintendents. They have but just become acquainted with the piovisions of the new law, and their retention in office would mean much in testing the merits of the law. SOME POSTOFFICE FIGURES. Little Pecuniary Profits in a Demo cratic Office in Dakota. The money order business of the Jamestown postoffice amounts at the end of the year, to quite a sum of money. The postoffice acts as the banker for a number of people who transmit and re ceive money through the system of orders and postal notes. The amount of orders issued from April 1st, 1887 to April 1st, 1888, was 824,101.71, and the amount of orders paid $16,388.79, or a business of handling over §40,000, for the public, besides the distribution of the mails. For this work Postmaster Klaus now receives §1800 as salary a year, and is obliged to furnish lights, fuel and office fixtures. He is allowed but $400 a year clerk hire, which does not half pay for the force required. The first year that Mr. Klaus took charge of the office, the appropriation for clerk hire was cut from §1750 to §500, and last July cut again to §400. An official bond of §20,000 is also required. Under Postmaster Kelley, the work of separating and distributing the mails was far greater than at present, as a large number of star routes were supplied from this office, now cut oft' by the advent of railroa s. Mr. Klaus is not, of course, desirous of standing in the position of a kicker on his excessively economical administra tion, but confesses that the republicans were certainly more liberal with their postmasters, and paid them nearer in ac cord with the responsibility of the office, and the work required by the public of a first class postmaster. About Signal Flags. The absencte of the weather signals during the last week or two has been no ticed and frequently commented upon. On account of their general character they have not altvays hit local meteoro logical conditions with accuracy, but they have nevertheless been relied upon in a certain degree, and all have felt they were well worth the small expense inci dent upon the purchase of the flags, the dispatches having been arranged to be sent at the expense of the signal service department. The flags purchased last fall have been worn out. and new flags will have to be secured or the report will be discontinued. R. A Bill has always taken a commendable interest in this matter, and at the last council meeting brought the existing condition of affairs to the attention of the council, request ing that if they saw their way clear, they order new flags. The cost of these would only be six or eight dollars, but it was decided that such a purchase would be an unwarranted expenditure of the city's money. However, it was the unanimous opinion of all present that the report should be continued, and that the few dollars necessary for that purpose could easily be raised by subscription. Wheth er anything has been done in the direc tion of circulating a subscription paper is not known, but it seems as though the trifling amount necessary, could and should be raised. Tl^e report should be continued by all means. An Eddy County Suicide. New Rockford Transcript: It becomes our painful duty to chronicle the unnatu ral death of Mrs. Hall who lived with her son and daughter on a farm two miles south of this city. The deceased was be tween seventy and seventy-five years old and was slightly of unsonnd mind for some time, the result of age and ill health Wednesday afternoon she sent her danghter over to inquire after the health of a neighboring lady who bad been ill. Her danghter not dreaming of the cause ot the desire of her mother to be left alone left on the errand and returning found her mother hanging by a rope to a rafter behind the door. Assistance was summoned but life had taken its depart ure .death having resulted from strangula tion The family is one of she most re spected in the county and while they mourn the loss of a mother they must not lose sight of the fact that death is the crown of life and the quiet haven of us alL The last sad rites will be conducted by Rev. J. K. Thompson, and interrment will take place on the farm this after noon. The Players Protest. The Patee company concluded its en gagement in Jamestown Saturday night when they played to another fair house At the conclusion of the third act, Mr Hallam,'the general utility man, came before the curtain and spoke a little piece in which he took exception to The Alert's criticism on the play of the evening be fore. The play it will be remembered was announced as "A Bitter Wrong better known as Jim the Penman"'. The Alert intimated that the play was cut, and Mr. Hallam stated in retort that the play presented was "Jim the Penman" word for word as it is played by compa nies having authority to present it, and resented the idea that the Patee company would be guilty of so doing. The Alert has no desire to throw away valuable space in contradicting a strolling player and will merely say that the play of "Jim the Penman", presented properly, as it was for several months in New York by the owners of the right to produce it, re quires no afterpiece to complete the evening, nor any explanation in advance that the imagination must be drawn up on to fill in some otherwise unexplain able parts. The truth is the Patee com pany did the best they could with the play which has only been seen as render ed by some of the best artists in the country—The Madison Square company —and the contrast was so striking that a criticism was necessary if the play was reported at all. The company is pirating the play around in the small towns of the west "and to give" as Manager Patee says, "the most for the money, the audi ences are sometimes treated to two plays in an evening instead of one." This is liberal enough, but requires something more than declamation, noise, and vapid gesturing to be properly presented. It is not a gallery play, and the assistance of the low comedian with his song and dance acts is not at all pecessary to re lieve the mind on the point of whether the last act ends the performance of "Jim the Penman" or not. As a matter of ordinary precaution the Patee company should be extremely wary of the public ity which always follows an angry retort in public to a fair criticism. Change of Time.

If they would invest twenty-five cents in a box of Chamberlain's Eye and Skin oint ment and apply it as directed they would soon become convinced of their error. It almost instantly relieves the itching and burning sensation and has cured many cases after they had resisted all other treatment for from ten to twenty years. Try it. For sale by all druggists. Announcement. The Alert is authorized to announced to the voters of Stutsman county, that Peter H. Foley, is a candidate for sup n-nteudent of the public schools, and of the county as such, solicits the sufferages of the voters at that election. The many cases of rheumatism cured by Chamberlain's Pain Balm during the cast few months, have given the people great confidence in its curative proper ties, and have shown that there ia one preparation that can be depended upon for that painful and aggravating disease. Mr. Geo. Davenport, one of the leading retail druggists of St. Paul, Minn., says: "In regard to Chamberlain's Medicines, I am pleased to say that I can recommend them with confidence, that they will do as much for a person as anything in the market. Especially am I pleased with Chamberlain's Pain Balm." No one afflicted with rheumatism can use it with out benefit. For sale by all druggists.
