ijfT: I f'S yM W ,i 14 rfl'i ill The 1 ll I It R? 1 .1 4 1 I 1 amestown Alert l'!ie Daily Alert is dullwred In the city by car rier*, at 76 cuiite a monih. Daily, one year t® S? Daily, six months [Jr Dally, three months Weekly, oue year Weekly, six months. Hills,—a THE early sentiment of the representa tives of the South Dakota statehood movement demanded the election of eight delegates from South Dakota to Chicago Upon later reflection, however, the men most prominent in that movement state the case as follows: First The republican party has ad mitted the claims of South Dakota to statehood, and by virtue of such admis sion and of its population, that section is entitled to eight delegates. North Da kota as a territory, is entitled to two del egates, making ten in all. Second Both parties admit that Da kota is entitled to admission as a whole if it wants such admission, and by virtue of such admission and its population of 600,000, Dakota should have ten dele gates. Thus, by either view of the situ ation, Dakota ought to have and the con vention should demand for it the admis sion of ten delegates at Chicago. But South and North Dakota are to day met in a joint convention, and there fore South Dakota does not demand that eight of the ten should be selected from that section, but concedes to the north and central parts of the territory four delegates. If the national convention should allow Dakota only six votes, then the ten chosen could cast those six votes, and if only two be allowed, the ten men would cast the two votes. This statement of the matter fully agrees with the position taken by The Alert yesterday, and seems to maintain the rights of Dakota, and at the same time guard against confusion and mis hap at Chicago. A VKOTAN who has not a presidential preference, and a decided on© at that, is a rarity. The majority of delegates to the republican club meeting seem to in dividually favor Blaine, whose distinct ive Americanism is a theme often revert ed to with rising admiration. et with many who have been heard to express opinions., the Blaine boom seems to have lost its decided sound there is too much uncertainty connected with him, his let ter is taken to mean what it says, and while loth to abandon the idea of his not being a candidate, the delegates are fain to confess that his nomination by accla mation is not now probable und yet that is, or should be, the only way in which he can be made the party's stand ard beaier this year. Next to Blaine comes Gresham, as most of the delegates seem to have a warm admiration for that distinguished judge and westerner. JWhen New York is mentioned as the next battle ground, DePew is named quickly as the man to win there. Conk 'ling's death and its bearing in that state are spoken of as favoring Blaine, should he be the candidate, and in other ways changing the aspect of the situation in that critical state. I An entirely different organization from White Ribbon League, but a horse of fi^the same color, is the White Cap regula J'Utoxsof southern Indiana. When an er """ring citiaen needs correction, for some jderalection erf doty, like drunkenness, "the White Cap* drag him to some pole or god whip salvation into him. Some so rigorous is the remedy that the •R' 1 DAILY (EXCEPT SUNDAY) & WEEKLY W. R. KELLOGG. DAKOTA is to have at least two dele gates in the national convention at Chi cago, and will in all probability have six. The JBismarck Tribune proposes the election of ten delegates, because the population of the territory entitles it to that number. is evident that if ten are elected, there must be a clear understanding and agreement as to which two are to be ad mitted at Chicago, should the national convention docide to admit only two and as to the six who shall go in if the con vention should admit only six. That ii the delegates elected should be classified, so that two should be elected as certain ties- four more as ''probables" and an other four as '-possibles/' To elect with out designating who shall be admitted, if all are not admitted, might lead to disas trous confusion at Chicago. The Tribune also proposes to give the southeastern corner of the territory and the Black population of about 160,000—four out of the ten delegates, to give central Dakota, with a population of about 140,000, three delegates, and to ]Jforth Dakota, with a population of at least 200,000, only three delegates. Such a distribution of delegates would be em inently unfair, if locality is to be consid ered. But it seems time that locality ceased to be the only criterion. The delegates, whether from the south or north or cen ter, will represent the great empire terri tory and present her demands to the Bepublican party, and to the country. Dakota should not permit her fragmenta ry and clashing interests, to divert atten tion of the national committee from the one great and overwhelming consider ation—that the whole territory 4s wrong fully, unjustly, and unmercifully kept out of the union. N T' patient don't recover to see the effects. Again, the White Caps give due notice that they will attend all neighboring elections, and they serve additional no tice that the votes of esteemed citizens, by a process of 200 lashes, will be effectu ally withdrawn from,the market ifoffered for sale. These regulators wear masks and do their work at night. They are prompt, eccentric and greatly in demand among the good citizens of routhern In diana, by whom they are mildly called outlaws. OTRT here in Dakota where youth, vim and vigor characterize the people, the course of the Chicago League Base Ball club is watched with hopeful interest. Dakota people believe in young blood and nothing would better please them or more signally vindicate their position in this respect,as far as the base ball world is concerned, than to see the Chieago''colts" distance the old spavined and Charley horsed, but high priced talent of some of the league teams, and be the first to come under the wire at the round up this fall. Gene Field of the News, and many other Chicago newspaper men, have sys tematically roasted the management and belittled the base ball abilities of the members of the Chicago team ever since President Spalding traded Kellny for $10,000, and the crusade was renewed with increased vigor after the Clarkson deal. Mr. Spalding conducts his busi ness on the principal that no existing ball player is so expert but that his equal can be found, and accordingly when An son has made an artist out of a raw re cruit whom other clubs look at with longing eyes, and bid high for, the level headed president of the Windy city team exchanges him for shekels and immedi ately sets about to develop another man. The Chicago team as now constituted is made up of young blood. The "colts" area promising lot, and before the sea son is over several of them will be stars. Dakota people would be pleased to see the young men come to the front es pecially would they be pleased to see the "colts" knock the horse-hide off from the ball when the 820,000 battery occupies the points for the Bean eaters next week. IT lay within the time of one man's life, and not a very long life at that, to see the great state of Minnesota grow up under his very eyes to its present mag nitude—to see the Twin cities of the new northwest rise from trapper's trading points to their present greatness. Com modore Kittson's life was mostly passed in the woods, on the prairies, among wild animals and among wild men. Yet the last few years he witnessed a bognd of progress that surrounded him with every civilized comfort and elegance of a city, Hfth every amazing contrast of a great metropolis. But a few years ago he rode in dog sledges from the Pembina district, 5C0 miles, to attend the legislature of his state. From that time to his death in a palace railroad car which was entering the old familiar rendezvous of fur buy ers, Indian traders, and half civilized freighters, the flight of years has been a short one. The time of another man's life spent in the still new northwest, wiil bring a live lier whirligig of changes than the Minne sota pioneers have witnessed. The prai ries of Dakota will be crowded with farm houses and people, and the cities of this present territory will be great centers of population in a vast and powerful state. THE competition of Canadian railroads may have a stronger effect on the rates and discriminations of the American road? than all the inter-state commerce legislation combined. The Canadian Pa cific is one of those irresponsible go and do-as you-please corporations that in the transportation business over rides all customary laws of competition now prevailing on the American side. These Canadian roads, with their American allies or branches, are now in readiness to engage in the business of handling freight and passenger busi ness in and out of the principal cities on the eastern coast. The great northwest and west will be drummed for this busi ness. Incidentally Dakota will be profit ed by this combination, in the building of new branches and the appearance of a new competitor for her hard wheat. Al ready the Grand Trunk has contracted to carry dressed beef from Chicago, through Canada to Boston, at rates that no Amer ican road can touch. The railroad companies that fought and declaimed against the great commis sion, may have to soon apply to the same source for assistance to keep themselves from being "competed" and "discrimin ated" out of their own jobs. COL. PLUMMER, now in charge of the Casselton Blizzard, brings The Alert to time in short order, but it was certainly heralded far and near in some myterious way he was to run a democratic journal with the Blizzard. Bumor had it wrong, for when Messrs. Plummer and Small got fairly going the politics of the Blizzard represented independent republicanism, with no uncertain sounds. The promi nence of the colonel in the political field and his well known anti-democracy sen timents made the false rumors of his in tentions the more strikingly noticeable. The Blizzard looks as if anew lease of vitality had got possession of it, with its new advertisements, better make-tip, and ili 4^ 'J '^I tiA cheerful business note that it "will be made the leading weekly paper of Cass county, and one of the best in the terri tory." The Alert is constrained to be lieve this beyond peradventure. No one reading Col. Ingersoll's grand words on the memory of Boscoe Conk ling, can help feeling the quickening im pulses toward what is right,'.toward what is great. A few of the wisest and best of American citizens, have, within a few years, passed to the questioning beyond, and their memories have been the fortu nate recipients of the noble tribute of In gersoll's words as their lives were the priceless possessors of his living compan ionship, and glowing intimacy. When this great preacher himself is laid low, and the time comes when his memory must be made a trumpet voice for others, who will fill the pulpit for him as he has for those before, who in this vast conti nent can arise before a multitude and ut ter as wonderful and thrilling sentences as these? Fortunate is that nation great enough to know the great. When a great man dies—one who has nobly fought the bat tle of life, who has been faithful to every trust and has uttered his highest, noblest thoughts, one who has stood proudly by the right in spite of jeer and taunt, nei ther stopped by foe nor swerved by friend—in honoring him, in speaking words of praise and love above his dust, we pay a tribute to ourselves. Most people are the slaves of habit— followers of custom—believers in the wis dom of the past—and were it not for brave aad splendid souls, "the dust of antique time would lie unswept, and mountainous error to be too highly heap ed for truth to overpeer." Custom is a prison, locked and barred by those who long ago were dust, the keys of which are in the keeping of the dead. Robert Ingersoll is a greater man than the age which he lives in gives him com mission for. He is coining a currency of intellectual and moral truths, spurious now with most of his countrymen, but fine gold and tried in the furnace, of a coming time. DEMOCRATIC newspapers are prophesy ing that the Jamestown convention will send a double header delegation to Chi cago. and otherwise develop a large amount of foolishness all of which is to arise from the division question. It is not believed the republicans will engage in a program of this kind. They have enough serious and important busi ness for the good of the whole territory and the welfare of the party to attend to, without quarreling over the past. The convention will decide among other things whether Dakota shall ££nd twelve delegates to demand admission as her full number of representatives, to the national convention. Dakota republi cans will also have the work of placing fairly and squarely before the National convention and the country at large, the ignominy and wrong that congress has heaped upon this territory. Dakota re publicans have an opportunity to do a vast amount of good for the entire terri tory, and they cannot afford to squander the same in petty wrangling at home. They need all their energies for Chi cago and the campaign. THE directors of the Canadian Pacific are holding an extraordinary session in Montreal, with closed doors. Some busi ness of exceeding importance is evidently pending with this great corporation. The company is proposing to surrender its un sold land, to pledge its postal receipts, and receipts for transportation of Indian and government supplies, and to obtain in return, among oHier considerations, the government's guarantee of the road's land grant interest bearing bonds. This deal will add largely to the available capital of the road, which is to be used in extending the "Soo" system in Dakota. The intimate relations of the Canadian Pacific with the government leave little doubt but that some arrangement of this kind can be made, if so desired. It promises well for Dakota, in any event. THE Aberdeen Democrat mourns over the local option victory in Brown county, which leaves the capital and chief town without a legalized bar to which an American citizen can resort for a drink without taking a back door route. The Democrat insists that Jamestown and Watertown were each given the conven tions this year because they were license cities. The republican committee which located the convention denies this, for its part, but the fact exists'that both con ventions sought towns where license was in force. There are few who can deny that two territorial conventions for the beautiful and orderly city of Jamestown, in one year, are very desirable gatherings to have. NEWS comes from the Black Hills that a delegate to the Chicago convention will be asked for from that locality, and coupled with this information is the ru mor that the'name of Hon. Seth Bullock will be prominent as such candidate. Seth Bullock is a royal old Hiller, known t» many Dakotans outside of his own mountain home, and all his friends up this way would be glad enough to see him go to Chicago to represent the Hills. No one could do it better—no one would make a finer showing for the good fel IOWB and straight republicans of the Black Hills than Seth Bullock. ALERT readers are today given a com plete and interesting review of the Great Cryptogram, about which so much gen eral attention has been given the past winter. It is a subject now interesting •rk- 5 the reading world, calling out columns of discussion and review, and even to those unfamiliar with the plays of Shakespeare or the works of Bacon, this controversy will be of interest. If it should draw a few more readers to the wonderful pages of either writer, the work of Mr. Don nelly will not have been done in vain, even if the verdict is that he has missed proving anything. THE presiding officer's individual pref erences for prohibition did not strike the convention of republican clubs as the strongest and most palatable salad to set before the voters of the territory, for the campaign. The prohibition movement, it was generally thought, could take care of itself in the future, as in the past, without the assistance of the republican club organization. The argument that most of the prohi bibition victories were won last fall by the aid of republican votes, and there fore a strong recognition of the move ment should emanate from the Dakota league at this convention was vigorously repelled by many delegates, who claimed that a party organization would this year bring republicans up standing, and the temporary prominence of the prohibition movement last fall would certainly be left among the things that were, in the vote for live republican issues in the year of our lord 1888. IT pays to tread the stage. Wearers of the sock and buskin gather, in these days, thicker fames, and greater store of gold, than the generals, the heroes, and the pi rates whose footsteps are valiantly fol lowed up and down the boards, and whose deeds are boldly mimicked in the narrow field. The second hand comes higher than the original, but come high as it may, the public must have it. Booth and Barrett have been playing to a season of business the past winter, which it is stated will make them gains of not less than 8900,000, of which Mr. Booth will have for his share $540,000, and Mr. Barrett 8360,000 for his. It seems almost incredible that such things can be, but when the public clamor for seats at from 82.50 to 810 a seat, the statement is not so problematical. No other theatrical people ever gathered in so much money in one season, it is stated. ABOUT the only people who haven't organized a trust are thetfarmers. But at their state convention in Kansas enough monopolistic instinct was devel oped to formulate a pretty extensive trust. The plan is to organize a farmers' trust, which shall regulate and control the shipments and distribution of all farm products. Ten central agencies are to be established at Chicago, Cincinnati, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Omaha, St. Louis, Cedar Rapids, St. Paul, Milwau kee and Louisville to do all the selling for members of the capyention. The con tributing territory is to be divided into districts and sub districts, with an execu tive board to regulate market shipments, etc. If this business has grown to be the only Way of transcting business, the farmer may as well take a hand in it him self. COL. PLUMMER sounded the slogan of the republican sentiment on the tariff, in that what ever scaling was necessary, whatever reductions should now be made, can be made as intelligently and as suc cessfully by the republican friends of the tariff as by its old free trade enemies, the democrats. In other words the wisdom, patriotism and business sagacity of the republicans of this country is as fully competent to reduce the tariff revenues, as the best efforts of the best element of the democracy, temporarily inspired as it is by a spasm of deceptive popular approv al. THE Dakota delegation to the Chicago convention, cannot afford to lose the ani mating presence of Col. Plummer. When anything is to be said, who can say in like Plummer? The principal business of the territory will be to make itself heard. An idea started, an apt senti ment expressed, may be taken lip by the whole country, and Dakota profit im mensely thereby. These pertinent senti ments and timely ideas don't originate in every man, but in Colonel Plummer they do. With Dakota delegates let Col. Plum mer be one and inseparable. CLEVELAND'S n^w chief justice has recorded the remark that the republic is Opportunity. The drift of this remark seems to have been caught by certain senators,and they too are inclined to take advantage of op portunity but only after a fashion dia metrically opposed tc the confirmation of Mr. Chief Justice Fuller. Opportunity in the republic may be great, but the United States senate seems to have considerable expansive ness itself. A CASE that jarred the sensiibilities of the census enumerators, and set idle rumors viciously going, has jnst been amicably settled by the hostile princi pals. It is the case of ex-Attorney Gen eral Rice against Pettigrew, and was an instance of how a small and vicious man acts when attempting to fastens disgrace upon one whom he was too cowardly to confront. The judgment was heavy, and the public trust that every dollar was collected. _______________ THE combination of the Yankton asy lum safe was lost the other day, and no one had it but an ex-steward, who refused to leave a republican caucus to oblige the trustees by opening their strong box. The confidence of the trustees in permit ting an ex-asylum official to retain the combination of the safe is something ex traordinary under the circumstances. IF Thomas Nast's pencil was still sketching fast and loose with congres sional frailties, how* it could feed the an cient grudge it bore Daniel W. Voorhees. The senator's apology for. language used, and his condition when using it, would furnish Nast a subject for diabolical de lineation that was wont to please the populace. Mr. Voorhees has of old referred to Mr. Nast as "nasty," but the former offensive ness of the artist would be highly agreea ble compared to the nauseous dose Nast would be now if the pencil was to get going. JUDGE GRESHAM owns a mine that will pay big returns with the G. A. R. men, if they g^t a chance to vote for him next fall. Five lead bullets that have plough ed up a man's system are enough to start the hurrah going with the old soldiers. Judge Gresham's decisions in the Wa bash cases have been publicly approved by the Knights of Labor. Every day the drift wood of public ap plause jjfor his candidacy seems to be get ting thicker. Loxo habit or some dim conviction of personal duty still impels many Dako tans to recite their beads for Mr. Blaine, but after this was done at the Stutsman county convention Saturday, the name next frequently spoken was that of Judge Gresham. A solid stratum of Gresham preference seems accumulating in the northwest. FLOODS and losses in all the Mississip pi river states, cyclones in Indiana and Illinois, chinch bugs and winter kill for their wheat, while in Dakota we are hav ing a spring that is giving every body a chance to get in a big crop, with promise of better prices. MB. BLETHEN, of the Minneapolis Tribune has sold his interest in that pa per to Mr. W. £. Haskell. Mr. Blethen is said to be an indomitable rustler with ability to make a newspaper a success, when he has swing. It intimated he may swing anew morning paper to the breeze in the Flour City. THE three foot bride who married the six foot coachman in St. Paul, will find it easy riding over smooth roads for awhile no doubt, but what a job she will have on her hands to support the big cabby when he gets out of a job. W-Q-G sounds enough like "old scougee" to mean, in country parlance that Walter G. Gresham is away up and a coming man. Gresham gram is growing in Dakota every day. COL. LITTLE, the Bismarck banker, is developing no diminutive boom for con gress in Burleigh county. Correcting False Statements. The following personal letter from General W. T. Withers of Lexington Ky., one of the noted stock men of tLe state, is published to set at rest state ments that purport to come from an Ypsilanti farmer, to the effect that the stallion Normont, owned by Dr. O. W. Arichibald, was not standard bred, and that the animal was not sold by Gen. With ers to its present owner, and other state ments calculated to injure the reputa tion of this thorough-bred stallion. Dr. Archibald does not care to publish ani mus of these misstatements but lets the letter speak for itself: O. W. Archibald M. D. Jamestown D. T. DEAR SIR: Yours of the fifth instant received and I was much surprised at its contents. I do not know Mr. Colby of Ypsilanti D. T., and certainly never wrote him that I did not sell you the stallion Normont, and that I never heard of you. There is some serious mistake in "this and also in Mr. Colby's assertion that Normont is not standard bred. Nor mont the stallion I sold you is certainly standard bred and any one who asserts the contrary ff s* ^uv^lmt *Kr asserts what is not true. I bred and raised the colt Normont, and his sire and dam were both standard bred, and both are duly recorded in Wallace's American trotting register as is also Normont. Why do you not call on Mr. Colby to produce the letter he alleges I wrote him.? I deny in most em phatic manner that I ever wrote Mr. Colby or any one else a letter denying that I sold you the stallion Normont, or stating that Normont is not standard bred. Keep me posted about your stal lion and his produce. He certainly ought to sire fast trotters. Wishing you much success, I remain your friend, WM. T. WITHFRS. Lexington, Ky. May 10th, 1888. Death of Peers Brown. The sad death of Peers Brown, a form er favorite attendant at the asylum oc curred there yesterday morning. He was a young man, a native of Canada, and had been in the employ of Dr. Ar chibald for over a year, when thinking to better his position he obtained a situa tion in Minneapolis where he has been the last six months. Some time ago he was taken sick in that city, and growing worse, with no prospect of improvement, took the train for Jamestown to see if any treatment could aid him. He was hopelessly Ul on arrival, and died yester day of brain fever. Dr. Archibald was greatly attached to the deceased, who was a highly esteemed by all who knew him tor many excellentjtraits of character. His untimely death will be regretted by a large number of Dakota friends. The remains will be forwarded two his par ents at Wallace Bay, Novia Scotia. ONE LA8T GRAND EFFORT.
