Stevens is lea«l (aiue ami Warns the Vimlictlves to Take a Lay Oft*. This is Uc.llly ltci'rcsliiiiK BIS.HAUCK, .Tau. 15. [Special| The house seems to be after some state officer. Yesterday the vote by which the senate bill fixing the the salary of state officers was passed, was reconsidered. The ob ject, it has been alleged, was to cut off an allowance for expenses made to one official who has recently thrust forward his economic ideas ani opinions in away distasteful to members whose pockets are not lined with gold. Today Wick ham introduced a resolution, which in the "whereases" declared that there is destitution in several counties of this state, and then resolved that those state officers who absented themselves from the capital during the Christmas holi days, be directed to turn over to the fund for the relief of destitute settlers their salaries for that time. The resolu tion would have carried but for Stevens, who moved to lay on the table, and made a strong speech against it. All reference to the resolution was ordered expunged from the journal. A man named Herrick, along whisker ed freak with a fenianistic countenance, is here with a roll of charges under his arm. He doesn't hesitate to say that he wants the scalp of Judge McConnell of Fargo, and also that of Superintendent of Public Instruction Mitchell. The trouble grows out of some ancient law suit, wherein be claims that Mitchell and others robbed him,and McConnell shield ed him and prevented his and other in dictments. Herrick wants both of them impeached. The charges, it is said, have already been submitted to Gov ernor Miller, but it was no ticed today that Herrick had them, or a copy, in his own possession again. The charges were sent to Speaker Wellman, unsigned, and would have been unnoticed, but Mr. Scalp-hunter put his John Hancock to tbein. Just as it had about been decided to consider the charges in secret session Herrick concluded that he would wait until to morrow to present them. As far as Judge McConuell is concerned, the mat ter occurred two years ago. when he was a United States judffe, and all talk about a state legislature impeaching him now. when he is a state judge, is the silliest kind o" twaddle. Even were the cliarges true, Herrick and his abettors could ac complish no impeachment, because that is no proper way to get at the matter. Among today's house bills were these: By Williams to prevent the formation of pools to oontrol prices of grain, hogs cattle, stock, etc. by Cole, to compel state officers to cover all fees back into the treasury as the constitution provides also by Cole "to simplify and regulate legal proceedings bvLilly, in relation to garnishment in justice court: by Thom soli of Walsh, to preserve in their native purity the waters of the James, lied and Missouri riveijs and to punish offenders by a tine of $50 and costs and by liied, to repeal the herd law. Haugernd, the gentleman with the Crowley uounte uance. introduced two bills the object of which he declares in the title to be the preservation of the public health. They are directed against the adulteration of dairy products, baking powders, syrups and sugars, vinegars, laid. etc.. etc. In the S4n»tr. The senate today refused to concur in the house resolution for the appointment of a special committee to investigate al leged railroad discrimination. A resolu tion will be introduced to-norrow asking the railroad commissioners to deal with the subject. The house authorized the railroad commissioners to make the in vestigat ion. An animated discussion occurred in the senate on the question of county depositories, without tinal action The bill to protect owners of registered sires and to encourage the breeding of improved live stock, tiassed the senate. Stevens MUr» ii| 'lie ni nial». Stevens created something of a sensa tion today. Immediately after the open ing of theses sion, he rose to a question ofjprivilege and, reading a personal crit i cism relative to his attitude towards railroads from a Lisbon paper, proceeded to declare himself in language vigorous and eloquent. He denied the imputation that he was a railroad man, declared that his voice had always been raised in be half of, and his vote recorded for. any fair and just demand made by the far mers, and pointed to »he journal of the house and the debates of the constitu tional convention, in proof of the asser tion. He referred to these reports of a contrary nature n* emanating from state officers and threatened if be ever again found occasion to take the lioor on a question »f privilege. to denounce the originators by name. "The railroad com mittee". he said, "is composed of farmers. If there be canse for complaint let them speak. They have made no complaint to me. Wheo ever they are dieatisfied with their chairman, I will resign." He said the charge that he rode to St. Paul on a pass was true and challenged any member of the legitdntMre wtio did not have a pass to stand up. It was observed that, none aroee. When Mr. Stevens bad concluded. Mr. Kstabrook. a farmer nd one of the most, intelligent meniliers of the honso, sprang to his feet and said that us a member of the railroad com mittee he wanted to testify to the emi nent fairness of the chairman and to state also that if there be any blunie at taching anywhere by reason of the com mittees slowness in reporting bills, it should be laid at the door of the whole committee and noi hung upon the indi vidual shoulders of the chairman. It might be stated here that where not personally kuown, Mr. Stevens is one of the most generally misunderstood men in the state. He is a gentleman of strong individuality and makes warm friends or bitter enemies. He has been unfortu nate enough to incur the animosity of some whose Indian like vindictiveness would entitle them to the love of Dr. Johnson, were he still living and looking for "good haters." They, have followed that gentleman from Ransom at every turn inhis (political career and it is from their machinations in part that many of these false rumors and false im pressions spring. Your correspondent has noticed Mr. Stevens' course and be lieves that there is not a more valuable man in the legislature. He approaches as nearly to the ideal legislator in all his breadih and fullness as any member of this first session. A ready and eloquent debater, learned in the law, posted in every point of parliamentary practice, ac quainted with rules and forms and meth ods of procedure, he fills a niche in the house which no one else could fill. Some of these days those men who are "mon keying" with Stevens will think a buzz saw has struck them. As the ancients said, "Stick a nin here." larldental*. Senator Fuller was in his seat iu the senate today, but at the close of the ses sion felt so ill that he took to his bed. Another oase of la grippe. Secretary Fancher of the railroad com mission, is here and will probably remain most of the session. Dr. Archibald and Steward Schwellen back came up today. They are here to see whether any money can be secured for the running expenses of the institu tion. Nothing, it is understood, has been available since statehood. Mr. Schwel lenbach had to borrow money in order to give the employees a little"where\vithal" for Christmas. A. C. McMillan, appointed assistant enrolling and engrossing clerk of the senate yesterday, has been detailed to act as clerk of the judiciary committee. His knowledge of the law will come very h&udy. for the senate committee has not a single lawyer on it. The house judiciary committee is hold ing a session tonight on the usury bills. A fierce discussion occurred. Notice to the People of Jamestown. The Rt. Rev.Bishop Shanley will leave St. Paul next Wednesday evening. He will arrive the following Thursday in the forenoon, and his installation will take place during a pontifical high mass on the 26th, in St. James cbcrch. I am rejoiced in being able to state that the long looked for presence of our rt. rev. bishop is near at hand, an 3 that his residence among us will have its begining on next Thursday. I am hear tily pleased in being able to announce to you with certainty the day of our bishops arrival, as it is a matte? of congratula tion for us all. FATHER CASRIDT. About State Appointments. Senator Pierce has disclosed the fol lowing budget of appointments, small indeed, bui enough to keep up interest. Judge Sebring of Eddy county, has been fixed with a census appointment, and will be called south in the transaction of his duties. This leaves the coast clear for another candidate for the register of the Devils Lake land office. It is sup posed that Mr. Sebring accepted the census position,because the appointment of a new register will not be made soon. Frank Morse of Bismarck, deputy auditor of the territory under Auditor Caldwell, has been appointed assistant to the United States senate sergeant-at arms, at a salary of $1,500 per year. Mr. Morse was a candidate for the Bismarck postoffice. The appointment of United States district judge is sLill undecided upon by the congressional delegation. The diffi culty lies in the scarcity of the right material. In all the Red river valley to which the appointment seems to be con ceded, there are few attorneys against whom some serious objection does not exist. Mr. Ball has been the most prom inent candidate, but M. N. Johnson's charges are said to havo had the effect of greatly injuring the gentleman's chances. It has been stated that a new name will be considered, possibly Cle land's or Spaulding's of Fargo. Neither Wahpeton, Grand Forks, Pembina, Ilills boro or other Hed river town presents any name that is conspicuous in its recommendations for the position. There is a possibility that the personnel of the supreme court may l»e changed a little and the way ont of the difficulty opened thereby. Cure for Influenza. C. Sander of Chicago, writes: "It surprises me that in no pnblic report reference is made to the pure volatile eucalyptus as a cure of the influenza, which has tjecome epidemic in Europe and recently in a good many parts of the United Statee. This drug was employed by Prof. Dr. Mostler, director of the medical clinic of the university at Greifs wald, Prussia, with the best results, in influenza, hay fever, diptheritis, catarrhal affections of the nasal mucous membrane ahd the deeper lying tnucoiis membranes of the trachea and bronchi. Prof. Dr. Schulz, lecturer on pharmacology at tbe University of Bor.n, Prussia, t-peaks like wise in the highest terms of the virtues of that drug in the complaints nameu. During my stay in Australia, where the use of pure volatile eucaylptus extracts (the volatile oil of the luuvea) has become quite familiar, I took particular interest in its manufacture. The article tbeie universally in favor is manufactured at Sandhurst. Victoria, and exported to BII parts oi tfie globe. It must not be con founded with the common terebinthin •ous eucalyptus oil or wood oil. DELINQUENT TAXES. The Time Wlicn the Penalty At taeltes Is Fixed at Octo ber 1ft Swuiiston Wants to Pass his Pet 11111 Over the Governor's Veto. Small-bore Statesmen Making Records by Persecuting llar\v -haml Clerks Ait' in .Uotlon. BISMARCK, Jan. 16.—[Special)—The house passed Senator Dodd's bill extend ing the time at which the live per cent penalty for non-payment of taxes delin quent attaehes, from February 1st to October 15th. The house added an emergency clause the senate will con cur in the amendment and the governor is all that can prevent the bill becoming a law. During the consideration of this bill an important parliamentary question was decided for the session. The bill was on its third reading and Walsh de sired to offer an amendment. The rules provide that when a bill is on its third reading amendments can only lie offered by unanimous consent. Stevens objected. Then somebody moved to sus pend the rules to permit the consider ation of the amendment. Here is where the question arose. Thompson of Cass raised the point of order that from the nature of the rule it could not be sus pended that only two-thirds being neces sary to suspend, if it were held that this rule could be suspended there would thereby be conferred on a two-thirds majority, a power which tbe rales say expressly shall belong only to the whole and may be defeated by one dissenter. It is a knotty point. Speaker Wellman submitted it to the house for decision and the house decided that the rule could be suspended. Hereafter it will not require unanimous consent to do anything in the house. Walsh introduced a joint resolution for the appointment of a committee of five representatives and three senators to make the final adjustment of financial affairs between North and South Dakota. It was made a special order for tomor row. the question of who shall in vestigate the charges of discrimi nation in freight rates seems to be agitating some people unduly. Yesterday when the senate refused to concur in the house resolution, placing it in the bands of a special committee, the railroad com mittee was so empowered. Today Mc Cullongh, who was made chairman of the first committee on the subject, brought in a concurrent resolution making it the duty of the railroad commission to make the investigation. Stevens and McCul lough entered into a discussion on the matter, which grew personal at times. The resolution was tinally adopted. Tiie railroad committee made its re port on coal rates, which The Alert printed few days ago. Stevens follow edit up with a resolution instructing them to make an investigation into the comparative merits of lignite coal. It was adopted. The senate took similar action. The house judiciary committee sub mitted majority and minority reports on Cole's usury bill. Both reports proposed amendments. The house went into executive session on the charges of Herrick against Judge McConnell. The charges were read and debated. It is understood that tbe de cision was that there was nothing to base impeachment proceedings upon. The governor's veto of Swanston's bill, locating the deaf and dumb asylum at Devils Lake, and making an appropria tion of $5,000 for the erection and opera tion thereof, has been made a special order for Saturday in the senate. Tbe doctor feels sorely disappointed that the bill met with executive disapproval,after having safely run the gauntlet of both houses, and talks of making an effort to carry the bill over the veto. Swanston need not worry, however. His constituents understand the situation, appreciate bis good work and that of Representative Currier, and realize that the governor alone prevented Devils Lake from securjng a sure enough insti tution. But the people of Ramsey county will undoubtedly have the good judg ment to return the doctor next winter and tlien he ought to meet, with better luck. lui'lilr iilsl*. Lieut. Gov. Dickey states that The Alert was in error when it stated that M. Sinclair had been appointed to a po sition on the engrossing force of the senate. Mr. Sinclair has the promise of a position in the bouse and did not ex pect anything in the senate. Cointy Commissioner Healy was to day held to await the action of the grand jury, ou a charge of defacing the Bur leigh county records. The cost of keeping Montana's insane forlSH!' was ?71,fl00 convicts Ml, 131.65, militia expenses 834,2j[8,29. Tbe auditor's estimates of state receipt! from all sources for the current year is #375,000 There is great trepidation among tbe appointed clerks of the house. In' ac cordance with a resolution, a committee has been appointed to ascertain how many clerks are necessary to transact the business of tbe honse, whether too many have lieen appointed and whether all are competent. This committee is religiously putsning. its investigation and has requested all the clerks to meet with the committee at tbe capital at ten o'clock tomorrow, morning. Lilly, the chairman, is an old school teacher and a whole lot of fnn is expected. The appointed clerks are all awaiting the terrible ordeal in fear and trembling. The general opinion is that a few will have to go. Wbioh ones will be deter mined by a civil service examination. What with no pay, examinations, persecu tions etc., the life of the poor clerk is not to bo envied. The futher maintenance of the militia of tho new state is very doubtful under the present condition of the treasury. The state owes the various companies consid erable amounts for armory rent and clothing accounts. There is due to the Jamestown company some $400, Valley City 8600, and Forgo #600. besides amounts due to other companies. The liquidation of these seems to lie a mat ter of great uncertainty. It will bo a pleasure to Jamestown people to learn that Stenographer Waugli of the last council, has been appointed to a position on the enrolling force. Jamestown is to tho fore, as of yore, if not more. M. Sinclair, a rustler from Mt. Pleasant, has the pleasant prospect of a soft place in the near future, the nearer the better. A. J. Craig the Fargo steam fitter and boiler manufacturer, is said to be favor ably considered for the appointment of state boiler inspector. POl* UOIvS TH WKA8EL. Females in a Fronajr—Biir-llang— Saloon In Soup—The Last Charge of the liight Brigade. Much comment has been caused throughout the state by the recent raid of some female prohibition crusaders in Ilatton, a small station in Traill county. The women engaged in the depredations were mostly Norwegians, it is stated. The following account of the ladies on the war path, from the Mavville Tribune, is a good starter in the enforcement of the prohibition law: Last Friday afternoon the lively little town of Ilatton had a livelier time than usually appears on the daily bills of fare. Some nine or ten women, who reside in the country around that place, thought that the saloons ought to go—in short— tbe ram power should be pulverized and they joined foroes—and armed with clubs, axes, hammers, augers, chisels— and other instruments of warfare waded into battle—without calling upon the enemy to surrender. Brandon's place was first attacked and speedilv fell into the hands of the attacking party. The whole front was broken in, counters, mirrors, chairs and tables smashed, and all the liquid stock turned loose to perish, just as tbe cold snap was setting in, too. Everything in sight having been "killed" at this place, the party moved on to "Mayor" Gunder son's place. The mayor was out attend ing to official duties, but the warriors concluded they hadn't time to wait, and in a short time this place met the same fate as itB neighbor down the street. Everything wen t—smash -smash crack crack-went the bottles through the large mirrors, counters and billiard tables chopped into kindling wood, while peculiar liquids—with a peculiar odor— McGinty and La Grippe tonic, Kendall's Spavin Cure and hop tea—mingled and co-mingled—and flooded the floors, and gave the beholder a small idea of the Johnstown flood. The "onslaught" was made just as the passenger train pulled in from the north and Conducter Breed held the train a few minutes that all hands could see the "pulverizing act." By the way, we hear that one of the women—seeing Breed's nice new clothes and gilt buttons and "sich" -concluded that he was an officer there to arrest the belligerents and raised her ax to place the supposed "hired man of the law" "hors de combat." Breed, it seems, had been "to war" before and in au instant he unlimbered a small howitzer from his hip pocket—and escaped without injury. No arrests have yet been made, but it is reported that there will be in a few days. Baching it in the West. W. S. Horton in Northwest Magazine: One of the commonest occurrences, when riding over the prairies, is to come across a little claim shanty, the door of which stands invitingly open. But no one seems to be about and from a plow up in one corner, a pair of boots in the middle of the floor, piles of dirty dishes and other mournful evidences of the lack of femi ninity, you conclude that the owner of tho shanty is "baching it." in prairie parlance. Perhaps it is some fellow who has told his best girl to wait for bim until he can make a home for her in the far west and what homes these best girls make when they come out to the wild prairies, bringing with them a hundred and one little refinements, and bringing them perhaps only to a sod shack, until they can build a more pretentious home! And few would chance to stop at such a home as this without catching some of the enthusiasm of its occupants. In our drawing a couple'of "boys have come out and built Bhanties on adjoining claims, and one has just come from the post-office with the home paper, which he is reading, while the other is prepar ing a supper for two. And if the reader has ever experienced tbe prairie appetite he will appreciate the fact that little of that supper will be left. Peppermint Drops. Everything goes with the spendthrift. A cat has nine lives and it throws them all into its voice. Tbe revolution of the hands of an elec tric clock must be a revolt. Every community has its fools and some are afflicted with fool fools. Lovers can live on love in the parlor all right, but not in the dining room. The three gauges of railroad—Narrow gauge, broad gauge and mortgage. Dogs are very affectionate. We have even seen dogs that weie attached to tin cans. He who would climb the ladder of fame as an orator, must win round after round of applause. Ttiejr Should Avoid I')'inn. Aberdeen, South Dakota, Republican: The South Dokota boomers should avoid lying about our twin sister, and these zealous Pierre correspondents mav profit ably consider that any injury done to North Dakota reflects on South Dakota also. Diphtheria is prevalent in Ramsey county. HHOWEIUNtJ ll*0\ SHAN MOV The Mni'kn oi' Hstcciii ami Regret, by liin St. Paul Adiiilrers—A Distin guished Honor. The following from the Pioneer Press of ai 17th inst., is of interest to North ibota and to the residents of the See cit: The farewell reception and ban quet given to Bishop John Shanley at Windsor hotel last evening, was partici pated in by Oatholio and Protestant alike. It was a fitting testimonial of appreciation of his sixteen years of ser vice iu the city as a priest and citizen. Among the distinguished Protestants present were »v. Merriam, Ignatius Donnelly, W. 1* l.irrayand H.A.Cnstle. The reception .• ,'iven in thepnrlorsof tbe hotel. Thero were several well known colored Catholics in attendance. The reception lasted until 10 o'clock.and then guests started in pairs for the ban quet hall. The procession was led by HOD. 0. D.O'Brien, with Bishop Shanley upon his arm. Next came Archbishop Ireland and Gov. Merriam, Hbu.lgnntius Donnelly and W. P. Murray, Hon. J. Egan and Rev. C. Koebrle. Bishop Shanley was placed at the head of the table, with Mr. O'Brien at his left and Judge Morrison at his right. Archbishop Ireland,5ov. Merriam, Ignatius Don nelly and D. W. Lawler sat in a row on the side occupied by Mr. O'Brien, and W. P. Murray. J. J. Eagan and H. A. Castle sat on Judge Morrison's side. Tbe repast consisted of twelve courses. At the conclusion of this. C. D. O'Brien arose and presented Bishop Shanley 3700 in money, as the gift of his friends, Mr. O'Brien said: Tonight I feel honored beyond my deserts, privileged beyond my capacity. For I am commissioned by his friends to say to him what each would say for him self. And yet while I feel incompetent to bear to him this great express on, I am more than proud, more than grateful for the position which I occupy. I am commissioned to bear tbe expressions of reverence and love of all these people for the stainless, spotless priest tliey are now called upon to pirt with. We bow in obedience to the mandates of that church we love. And so they tell me to ask you, beloved bishop, to accept from them this little token, not for its intrinsic worth, but as a memento of their deep devotion for you. Bishop Shanley was evidently over come by the touching presentation speech of Mr. O'Brien, of which the foregoing is a mere hint. The bishop arose and replied with difficulty.* He said: It is certainly a difficult task, gentle man, to make a respond to such an ad dress. Theco is something human in all of us. There are certain strings in the human heart that cannot be played upon to harshly. Mr. O'Brien has touched those cords ofmy heart, and I am almost unable to reply. During my priesthood of sixteen years I have had many op portunities to test the depth of the friendship for me of my flock and people, and I have always found them most de voted in everything. I have never want ed for a dollar in any good work. This is the liistor of my pastorate, and I was not surprised when 1 heard I was to be given a reception and banquet. I felt I knew what to expect, but I was mistaken, and I am surprised now at the magnitude of the token of your love. I thank you all. It is a hard thing to say good-bye to those we love. I do not propose to say good-bye. I shall come and see you often [Applause and I may pnt you to the test now and then again. Applause. Gov. Merriam responded to "The Com monwea'tb of Minuesotn. He said: I feel fortunate in being able to be present tonight. Bishop Shanley is a young man. fint this is an era of yc ung men, young men are now taking the lead in religion, the lead in law, and I may say, possibly, the lead in politics. [Laughter and applause.] The time close at hand when Col. Ireland and Mri Donnelly must step aside for younger men. [Laughter. I desire to speak briefly of the part which the Roman Catholic church has borne in the develop ment of this state. The orator paid a glowing tribute to the work of the church. "It has had as much, if not more, to do with the de velopment of Minnesota than any other agency in the Northwest." The governor wound up with an eloquent tribute to Archbishop Ireland. The archbishop followed with an ad dress. Said he: I do not wish to say much concerning tbe guest of the evening. But I should be false to my convictions if I did not say that he is worthy of this tribute.[Ap plause.) For sixteen years he has work ed for you night and day. Every hour of his time was at your service. The re ward has come, which in many respects is a heavy burden. We Catholics,I think, have kept pace with the growth of this wonderful city. I am proud of my work. It has come about through tbe work of zealous priests and the hearty co-opera tion of tbe people. Good Catholics will always stand foremost in al! good work. And now let me say, build UD yourselves personally. I thank Gov. Merriam for Lis splendid tribute to the Catholic church. And now my people hold up your heads and remember that the dig nity and honor of the church rests upon your shoulders. Ignatius Donnelly responded to the toast of "The Celt in America." Mr. Donnelly was in his usual felicitous mood and kept the house' storming with ap plause from the time he opened his month until he sat down. He spoke of "Bisbop Shanley as having been a right arm to Archbishop Ireland, and said: The man who wrests the flowing cu from his neighbor's lips performs a wori which tbe angels revere, I believe. I want to say that if tbe Catholics of the old world knew the strength and import ance of the Catholics of the' New World upon the death of his holiness, Pius IX., John Ireland would be made pope. My toast. I believe, is "Tbe Celt in America." If it keeps on here at the rate of the past few years, it will be America in the Celt. The audience was convulsed in laugh ter b\ the ludicrous description of the orator of how Columbus discovered a colony of Irishmen in tho new world. Ha snid he hud no doubt he arctic explorers, when they at length reached the north pole, would find a colony of Irishmen at the foot of tho pole, taking up a collec tion for the Parnell fund. Hon. P. H. Kelly was down for a re sponse to tlje toast, "The Commercial Northwest," but he was unable to be present on account of ill health. Rev. C. Koebrle repponded to "The Priests of the Cathedral Purish," D. W. Lawler spoke upon "The Cntholic Layman," a-d the occasion came to a close by a happy response to the toast, "Tbe City of St, Paul," by Hon. J. J. Egan. Among the guests at the receptioa were many of the best known and wea thiest citizens of St. Paul. Court for UMourc County. A term of the district court will be held in LaMonre. beginning Tuesday January 21st, Judge Lauder presiding. The calendar shows considerable business for the firBt seperate term that LaMoure county has ever had. There are thirty seven civil causes, and eight criminal coses. Among these are two violations of the liquor law, one forgery and four assault cases. The officers of the court are Judge Rose, N. B. Wilkinson, district attorney E. M. Whitman, clerk J. W. Stoddard, sheriff Henry Hartman, deputy and Edwin S. Rose, stenographer. Among tbe resident attorneys are N. B. Wilkinson, C, W. Davis, 8. H. Moer and L. C. Harris. Among the Jamestown attorneys having cases on the calendar are noted L. T. Hamilton, Jno. S. Watson, Johnson Nickeus and F. Baldwin. No grand jury was drawn. Among tbe most important civil causes are the widely advertised suits of the Northern Pacific Elevator company agaiust the oounty commissioners. Devils Lake Inter Ocean: The Devils Lake News was foreclosed on last Monday under a chattel mortgage held by the American Mortgage company of Soot land. The mortgage amounts to about $2,000. This makes 'steen times, more or less, that the paper has changed hands, and the end is not yet.
