Pioneer Press: The enterprise of the North Dakota Millers' association in sending J. S. Hillyer to London is very commendable. The millers of the No. 1 Lard belt claim that they do not get the full benefit of their flonr. They manu facture the best tlour in tbe world, and 'hey want the world to know it. The wheat they use is all No. 1 hard, purchas ed from the farmers' wagons. It is not mixed with the soft varieties- The hard wheat is practically confined to North Dakota and the Red river valley. If the Hour is the beet in the world, and the price for the pure article the beat, the millers of North Dakota are not only do ing a great thing for themselves but a great thing for the wheat raisers.

The claim that Stilts.nan county is democratic is proven totally untrue by a simple glance at the vote. With a strong republican defection, which necessarily carried with it votes for democrats, Ful ler, independent republican, and Milsted straight republican are elected to the legislature. George Lutz, an unusually popular and capable democrat, was elected as the only representative out side of the judicial candidate, on the democratic ticket. Goodrich, the straight *0 o-! democratic candidate received less 1 05 than 185 votes Judge Rose's large 8 00 1 50 2 00 3 60 vote is easily accounted for by the fact that as yet many republicans as well as democrats, did not care to make the judgeship an olhce for party regulation, provided ac acceptable man and a trust worthy judge was to be obtained, and was already in their service. Another electioa will see a republican organization that will prove invincible. The Orticial Count. The county commissioners met yester day as a canvassing board and canvassed the returns of the county and a tabu lated statement of the same, appears in another part of this issue.

It was a flash of color, a gleam of snowy plumes, a glitter of bright steel, and a rythm of graceful movement. Such a I sight, in all the magnificence of its splen dor. has never before lieen seen in this city, famous for the number and gran deur of its parades. The wide plaza to the east of the great white marble build ing was packed with thousands of knights, hut as the procession moved there seemed to be no diminution in the number of those who stood like statues waiting for the word of command that put them in motion. As the showy columns, resplendent in many hues, swept onward with firmness and precision of a machine, up the broad and gaily decorated avenue, tlie eye grew confused with the number ancl the glow ing brilliancy of its hues. There were acres of snowy plumes, streaming and swaying in the crisp October air like meadows of white lilies. There were Mile* of Gleaming Sword*: there were leagues of bright colored banners that fluttered in line knightly splendor of color above the vast and the steady moving host, and as the finishing touch" to a picture unparalleled in its brilliancy and beauty, music lent its sweetest'eharm.

The grand review in I860 tilled Pennsylvania avenue, one of the great and memorable thoroughfares of the world, all day for two successive days, from curb to curb, with its quarter of a million soldiers re turning home from a successful war. But no spectacle combining so much that which was grand in its proportions, beautiful to the eye and stimulating to the fancy, as this Knights Templar parade, was ever seen here before. There were Twenty Thousand Knight* i» l'roceiwloii. Up the broad avenue they moved, till reaching the treasury, the head wheeled into Fifteenth street, past the exchequer.

Hacked on each more than three miles, iiac side and tilled with a double row ot trees, gave the kuights a suj»erb welcome. It is the home of wealth and fashion, and wealth and fashion poured out with l»eartiest enthusiasm to greet the knights. The column passed steadily on. marching ig platoons from curb to curb, and giving a beauty to the grand oU, street it had never worn before.

"The Great Northern" Not Snch Portentous Affair as it Was at First Heralded. Simply a Reorganization and Consoli. dutiou of tlie Manitoba Lines and Branches. prions Charges of False Billing Made Against the Kansas City Road —Railway Gossip. /ST. PACL, Oct. 9.—The Globe prints an itcrview with Henry D. Minot, presi ent of the Eastern Minnesota, and one the directors of the Manitoba, as to hat was the real meaning of the Great Northern Railway company: /"It is not such a portentous birth as as been imagined by many. It simply mounts lo this—that it was found advis able to ir crease the capital stock of the Manitoba road. It would be inconve nient to make this increase of Manitoba ock as such. It was also deemed advis able, as a matter of economy, to place all he different companies which are con rolled by the Manitoba under one man gement. The present name of the road :i a misnomer and among many is inis nderstood, being taken as the name of Canadian road bv more well-posted A capitalists than you would imagine. For these reasons it was decided to Aicittlgainate all the Iloads into a new company, with the name of the Great Northern railway. The Mani toba, Eastern Minnesota, Montana Cen tral and Northern line of steamships will all come into the new company, I do not see that it will make any difference to the public at large, being simply a measure of convenience/' In response to a question whether the "Sxi," Burlington and Northern, Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic, or any other road would be included in the amalga mation, Mr. Minot laughed and said: "No, decidedly not. Some people im agine that we are going to absorb every thing within a thousand miles. This is utter absurdity, as the new company Only Includes tin- Manitoba System and its branches. I foresaw that the re entrance of the Canadian members to the Manitoba directorate would be mis construed. and that people woidd talk about coalition with, the Canadian, Pacific. There is nothing in this at all: the election of Sir George Stephen and Sir Donald A. Smith a.s directors of the road was nothing but a most natural thing. They have been for a long time heavily interested in the road, and their presence on the board gave an additional strength. That is really all there was in it, and this talk about affiliation with the Canadian Pacific is the sheerest non sense. 'So is the talk about the Manitoba road obtaining control of all sorts of other roads." GREAT AT MANIPULATION.

PAUL, 9.—A special to the Pioneer Press from Chicago says: For weeks the Chicago,St. Paul and Kansas City road has been engaged in manipulating freight rates on almost every class of grain from Kansas City. The sin of the Kansas City was made public by accident. The Kan sas City.
