A Fight Brewing at Bismarck Over the Proposed Klevutor Enactments. Friday was Fruitful of Much (htoil Work in Botli Hortses. Wpicy Comment l'iou Various Matters at tlie State Capital. BISMAUCK, JJID. 29.—Special.—Ono of the coming lights of the session will be »?er elevator legislation. An effort will be made to repeal the three laws passed lust session and in their stead enact a new law that will eliminate the tax fea ture and some other features particular ly objected to by the elevator men. Tufts, who has already introduced a bill to repeal the Lutz elevator license law, sent in another today to repeal chapter 187 of the laws of 1890. This is in pur suance of the plan of the elevator meu. A bill to repeal the other elevator law of "i)0 may be looked for soon. As yet there has been nothing offered as a sub stitute for the laws sought to be repeal ed. Attorney Wilson, the Roman nosed lobbyist, who represented the elevators last year is among the missing, but it is rumored that there are some pretty smooth people here whose expenses are paid by Twin city grain handlers. A letter to Harry Oliver from one of his constitutents—F. A. Blood—will go into today's journal. It is anent the elevator "iniquity." He urges his representative to endeavor to secure the passage of laws to redress wrongs in the present system which are specified at length. The grad ing system is vigorously objected to. Col. Brown, in the house, presented a petition, signed by the field and staff ufiicers of the N.D.N.G. asking that they be furnished with uniforms, equipments, etc.. so as to be in condition to do cam paigning. Twogatling guns are asked for. The signature of Captain Schwellen bach appears among others at the bot tom. The house election contests were set tled today. Ward's seat was contested by Hare and Yegen's by Pmlbrick. The usual allegations were set forth. The. committee examined the evidence and unanimously recommended that the members holding certificates were enti tled to the seats.Both contests were from Burleigh county. They grew out of the Pieree-McKenzie fight. It was under stood that the senate contest commttee would report on the Wellman-Patch contest today, but the report failed to materialize. It is said that there will be *wo reports. The sentiment of the leg islature seems to be in favor of seating the man with the certificate and all the contests so far have been so decided. Both Wellman and Patch give it out that they will be seated. There was a little razzle-dazzle in the senate on Burke's resolution requiring states attorneys to enforce the state banking law. It was adopted in the boose yesterday, but was decisively sat •poo in the senate. After considerable discussion it was made a special order for Feb. lOtb. The honse passed Fay's bill to protect bank depositors. It makes the receiving of deposits when in a condition of in solvency a crime equal to embezzlement and declares that the receiving of de posits within 30 days of suspension shall be prima facie evidence of guilt on the part of bank officials. Oliver's bill for the regulation of credit companies and guarantee associations came up for final passage. It met with oppositiou and was postponed. It should pass but will hardly do so. It requires that a list of correspondents of commer cial agencies shall be filed with the sec retary of state and that a state agent shall be appointed upon whom process «an be served. The design of the bill is to protect merchants and business men irom irresponsible agents who make un fair ratings. TODAY'S BILLS. In the senate, Haggart asks for an an nual appropriation of $3,000 for the Fire sen's association to make their tourna ments hammers. McCormick of Ram sey asks for an appropriation of $30,000 lor a building and $5,000 for a site for the deaf and dumb asylum at Devils lake. The appropriation committee in troduced a bill making provision for alerts salaries for tbe state officers. The governor and auditor get an increase and the secretary of state a reduction as com pared with last year. Palmer came to the front with another appropriation. It ii for the board of university and school lands. They want $7,000 for expenses of tbe cemmiMion to select lands and 110, 000 to contest school lands belonging to them. Kuhn got in two bills. One to give sheep owners indemnity against loss by dags, and tbe other to provide for sheep inspection and supervision incases of infection. House bills: By Strom, to prohibit tbe mortgaging of exempt personal property without the consent of wife by Triplett to protect regular medical practitioners and give quacks the worst of it by Bur ton, several amendments to the Bchool law by Brooke to amend and re-enact the law of last session providing for the is suance of bonds by counties to secure seed grain for needy farmers. HIDE SHOTS. The bill providing for a landlord's lien was indefinitely postponed in the house. llepreseutative Kearney was one of the members who opposed Oliver's credit company bill. Judge Hamilton and Editor Steinbach were among today's arrivals. The judge is looking up sheep bills. Bud Reeves' letter anent the senatorial contest in Wednesday's St. Paul Globe is a friutful topic cf conversation here. Representative Lutz's wool market bill was repjried back from the committee today with favorable recommendation. Joe Edgeley, who is well known in Jamestown, has been sick more or less every since the session commenced and is now reported in a dangerous condi tion. "Governor" Havrevold i3 still here. He wears the largest hat of any man in the state and although he don't look very pretty generally manages to "get there" for a "touch up" and such. The hackmen are now selling eight tickets for a dollar. Col. Shain's visit stirred the animals up. The legislators— who ride—should rise up and call the colonel blessed—and ride with him, too. Representative Fiske of Kidder county, ought to be a preetty smooth article in politics. He was chief clerk under "Blocks of Five" Dudley, when the latter was United States marshall for the state of Indiana. Hon. F. J. Thompson, who has just been appointed assistant attorney gener al, was a member last year. He is a gentleman of scholarly attainments and last, year won the title, "the scholar of the house." Tbe appointment gives gen eral satisfaction. None of the members or clerks have drawn a cent of pay yet. There is no money available in the treasury and tbe necessary bills have been slow in getting through the mill. Everybody is dead broke or claims to be. One member who was lamenting the depleted condition of his exchequer was lioored with the inter rogatory, "Where were you last week?" (during the senatorial contest) Another who had stuff was literally appalled by the oxclumatiou: "Better go home and lift that mortgage!" The remarks are suggestive. Dave Wellman decided today to with draw his contest and has so notified the senate committee which had the case in charge. It is understood that the com mittee stood 5 to 2 in favor of Patch. The combination which organized the senate still holds thb reigns and as Dave is on the outs he had to bow to it. One member of the committee is reported to have said that the contest would never be decided on its merits that Patch would retain his seat even though the evidence should show tbe contestant to have been elected by 50 majority. When the game bill was under consid eration yesterday Mr. Kearney did some talking and this is the way the Tribune reports him: "Mr. Kearney wanted a sort of interstate commerce law that would allow a traffic in geese between the commonwealths cf the nation. He pathetically described the plight of sev eral of bis constituents who came to Jamestown with big bags of this game only to find that they could not ship them abroad, and a tear rolled down his cheek as he told how they were obliged to return home, 'long' on experience, legal knowledge and—geese." Through the influence of Jud La Moure, Frank Morris, who has made his home with Warden Williams for the past eleven months, is again a free man with all the rights and privileges of citizen ship. Gov. Burke today signed tbe pa per that gave him his liberty. White is one of Jud's constituents and owns eight sections of Red river valley dirt. Some time ago he got mixed up in an alterca tion at home and shot a man through the hand. The lawyers succeeded in getting about $5,000 of his cash and giving him a two years sentence. He is enjoying himself today and expects to leave for home tonight. Next time Jud wants anything in Pembina county Morris will be right in line for him. BISMARCK, Jan. 30— Special.—Senator Little today introduced a resolution pro viding for the appointment of a joint committee of five to inspect the insane asylum at Jamestown. It went through both houses and the committee was named nefore adjournment so they could go down tonight and remain over Sun day. The committee consists of Senators Little and Bidlake and Representatives White, Richie and Triplett. Bidlake was a member of the territorial house, four years ago, and was a member of a similar committee at that time. The visit will be merely one of inspection, but tbe committee's report will doubt less have its effect on the appropriation bill. The house passed three or four bills. Gill's game law was one of them. It passed as it came from the committee of the whole, affords protection only to chicken, grouse and song birds and makes August 20th the date of the ex piration of the restrictions upon the shooting. Oliver's bill for the regulation of credit companies, guarantee associations, and mercantile agencies also passed. Senate bills 2 and 3, Little's bills regulating ap peals to and praotice in tbe supreme court went through the house. The senate adopted a memorial to tiie Minnesota legislature praying for the suppression of bucket shops and option dealing and a memorial to congress ask ing for the retention of Ft. Totten as a military post. Mr. Lutz offered a resolution, which was adopted, calling upon the attorney general for an opinion on the constitu tionality of bis hail indemnity bill. The bill is admirably framed and is gener ally well received, but there is a question as to whether or not it conflicts in some of its provisions with the constitution. Gill's resolution for a committee to draft resolutions on the death of Secre tary Windoui was adopted and Richie's resolution urging our representatives in congress to endeavor to secure a national law prohibiting lotteries was referred to the committee on state affaire. Every body is getting in a lick at the "octopod" this year. The appropriation bills are coming in early this session. The Grand Forks university appropriation bills were intro duced today by Williams. They are two. Ono requests §20,000 for a dormitoryjand the other $79,GOO i'or maintainance. Graber got in a bill providing for an election to decide the location of the blind asylum located in the constitution "somewhere in Pembina county." Peabody is from the artesian well region and he has a bill authorizing civil town ships to bond to sink artesian wells. A bill by Beardsley would require registers to file a statement of the contents of chattel mortgages with the township clerk of the township in which the mortgagor resides. By Strom, to pro vide a board of supervisors, one from each township, city and village, to take the place of county commissioners. By Bjornson, to give a bounty of $5 per acre for five years for every acre of trees which have been successfully cultivated for three years. Mr. Kearney, by request, introduced a lengthy bill defining the duties of registers of deeds and clerks of the district court in making and certify ing abstracts, and Oliver has one to cut off petty criminal prosecutions by pro viding that no criminal warrant shall be issued by county courts, city justices and police judges without the certificate of the states attorney In the senate: Svensrud introduced another exemption bill. It exempts $200 of personal property. He also fathers a bill to fix thtj salary of probate judges— 8150 for 3.000 population. $50 for the next o.vuu iur IIIB 1.000 of population and $100 for the next 2,000, etc. The salary of Stutsman county's probato judge under the bill would be §300 per year. At present it is said to bo about $900. Kinter put in a bill to make railroad companies liable for fires set by sparks from their loco motives and Ink to appropriate 815,000 to pay the bounty offered for the manu facture of potato starch within the state. SIDK SHOTS. Dr. Archibald and Stewart Lovell came up today in time to return with the committee to inspect the asylum. Both houses adjourned tonight until Monday —"out of respect to the late Hon. Wm. VVindom, secretary of the treasury." The members embrace every oppor tunity to get away from Bismarck and tomorrow a party will go east and an other west to put in the time during the brief adjournment. The proposition to amend the consti tution so as to have one instead of three commissioners of railroads was favorably reported today. Worst's bill requiring detective agencies to incorporate was ad versely reported. The committee on charitable institu tions met tonight and considered Sena tor Fuller's bill making an appropriation of $168,000 for the Jamestown asylum. Dr. Archibald came before the commit tee and explained the needs of the insti tution. He made a very favorable im pression. The bill will probably be re ported with a slight cut on some of the amounts asked. The bill for the extension of the time at which the delinquent tax penalty at taches was reported back to the house today with the recommendation that the time be extended to March 1st. It is impossible now to secure any relief through this measure as the penalty at taches Monday. This is one of the first measures which should have been passed but it dropped out of sight during the senatorial struggle and failed to re-appear until today. There will be a good deal of borrowing throughout the state to save the five per cent penalty. The house took an economical streak today and voted down a motion to have 50 extra copies of an amendment to the educational law printed for the use of the superintendent of public instruction. Just previous the house had voted down a motion to have extra copies of the jour nal of preceding days printed. Mr. Kearney was with the majority in both instances and made a vigorous speech in advocacy of economy all along the line. He evidently does not propose to see any of tbe state's money needlessly and fool shly expended without raising his voice protest. Senator Worst gave the clerks in that body a quiet roast today. He introduced along resolution which recited that the senate committee rooms are quiet and attractive and the company congenial and the presenoe of a couple of clerks each evening would not make the rooms crowded, but would be conducive to the better nature and more thorough enjoy ment of all concerned, and therefore re solved that the president be instruct*! to extend a cordial invitation to the clerks to drop in and visit during the evenings and to bring with them any blank committee report not otherwise appropriated. This is almost equivalent to insinuating that the boys have been "playing horse." •'How to Cure all Skin Disases." Simply apply "Swayne's Ointment." No internal medicine required. Cures tetter, eczema, itoh, all eruptions on the face, hands, nose, etc., leaving the skiu clear, white and healthy. Its great heal ing and curative powers are possessed by no other remedy. Ask your druggist for Swayne's Ointment. REDISTRICTING NORTH DAKOTA. Schedule of tlie CliaiigcM Proposed in the Lcgittliitivu Apportionment. BISMARCK, N.

The party at Miss Sadie Elliott's, Fri day evening, was highly enjoyed by those fortunate enough to have an invitation. Games were begun early in the evening, and at about 12 o'clock refreshments were served, consisting of sandwiches, coffee, ice cream and cake. Imring the quiet intervals the ladies and gentlemen furnished some excellent masic. The .•arty did not take leave until the gray dawn| of the morning. The air was a little sharp none minded that, but would be willing to go as far again were they assured such a time over. Miss Curtis and Mr. Eddy of Jamestown, were pres ent aud added greatly to the occasion. PniL. filigree Points. Mr. Stickleberger of Oberon, is visit ing friends here. J. L.

The dance which was to occur at Pete Gaffney's place, Tuesday night, was post poned on account of the severe weather. Mr. and Mrs. O. G. Breeky entertained a number of friends at their home Mon day night. The evening was spent in playing various games and a fine supper was also served, and everyone present re ported a fine time. A Reliable Commission Firm. Parties in the northwest who desire the acquaintance of a reliable grain com mission firm in Chicago can do no better than to correspond with Robt. Lindblom & Co., successors to F. D. Brown & Co., 13 and 15 Board of Trade. The members of the new firm need no introduction to the grain public. Mr. Lindblom's connections with the grain trade for twenty-five years is well known, and Mr. Fageraten's spicy market lettere during the past year have introduced bim. Through ths Wsary Hews Of many a aiffht, made doubly long by its pro. tractad •goay, the rhcumttic suff«r«r tomi to and fro on hi* sleeplM* couch, vainly praying fbr. thtt rest which only comes by flu and starts. Hia malady is one which ordinary medicines too often fail to relieve, but there is ample qpidence to prove that the efficient blood depurenr, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, affords the rheumatic reliable means of relief, check the malady in its incipient stages, when the first premonitory twinges come on, with this agreeable medicine, and avoid years of torture. Whatever be the ration ale of the active influence of the Bitters upon tins malady, certain ii is that no evidence relating to its effect is more direct and pos itive than that winch relates to its action In cases of rheumatism. Like all sterling reme dies, however, it deserves a protracted syste matic trial, and should not be abandoned because not at once remedial. It is equally effiacinus in dyspepsia, indigestion and kindred diseases. WAS GUILLOTINED. Paris Sensation Ended by the Exe cution of the Condemned Mur derer, Eyrand. La Mafia Credited With the Latest Sensational Murder in Chicago. Itrutal Murder and Suicide ut Smith ton, III.—Day's Record of Crimes. PARIS. Feb. 4.—Michael Eyruud, the strangler, who in July, 188!). murdered Notary Gouffe in Paris, was executed by the guillotine Tuesday morning. The most remarkable feature in the sensational legal proceedings which cul minated in the sentence to death of Eyraud and to twenty years imprison ment at hard labor of Gabrielle Bom pard, was the unsuccessful attempt of the counsel for the Bompard woman to prove that in the murder she acted her part while under control of a hypnotic. Owing to the stern mles of the French administration of justice in such cases, only the most meager details of the manner in which the strangler defied death are obtainable. It is certain, how ever, that he diad with fortitude. All efforts by the chaplain, Abbe Faure, to administer religious consolation were declined and the last moment, when the grim face of the guillotine was all that stood between Ey raud and death, the murderer's nerves of st»el and iron purpose served him in his final angry refusal to subject to tlie religious rites. Then straighten ing himself out Eyraud awaited the knife. A moment later the great knife dashed downward and the murderer's head i'ell away from the body and dropped into the saw-dust filled basket. Death followed simultaneously with the blow of the knife. Tlie body of Eyraud has been handed over to his relatives. As the head of Eyraud fell beneath the knife, the crowd made a terrific rush toward the guillotine, but were beaten back by tlie guards and gen darmes. THE MAFIA'S WORK. That Society Caused Sennas' Murder, So the Chicago Police Say. CHICAGO. Feb. 4.—The stilletto mur der grows daily more sensational. Po lice Inspector Punt, after careful inves tigation. has reached the conclusion that the victim was decoyed into the woods at Parkside by the tale that stolen prop erty was buried there and could be pur chased at a low figure. Arrived at a previously selected spot Sennas was told to dig at the foot of a scrub oak tree for the plant. While on his knees digging, Vallons struck him a fearful blow in the neck with the stiletto. The dead man sent large, closely sealed packages at regular intervals to Italy, and this cir cumstance. together with the peculiar facts of the assassination, is taken sis as tending to confirm a suspicion that the tragedy was the work of the Mafia. MOST FIENDISH TRAGEDY. and Brutal Murder of a Young Woman Suicide of the Murderer. ST. LOUIS, Feb. 4. —Reports of a double tragedy at Smitliton. Ills., have just reached here. From what can be learned so far it appeal's that Henry Brehold, living near Smitliton, dis charged the contents of a shot gun at his sister-in-law, striking her in the leg. His intention appears to have been to kill her, as when he saw- the shot had produced fatal wounds, he clubbed the weapon and struck her on the head with the butt end, inflicting injuries which will probably result in death. After reloading the weapon he placed the muzzle under his chin and pulled the trigger. The entire charge took effect in his head, killing him instantly. No cause is known for the tragedy. PEACE IN THE ALABAMA MINES. Wsr on the Negroes Ended Because There Are no More Negroes to Kill. BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 4.—Col. Clark, who was in command of the military at Carbon Hill, said on his re turn that every negro in the town had been driven away by the mob. Col. Clark thinks there will be no more trouble unless Mayor Anderson is forced to leave, he having incurred the enmity of the lawless element by calling for troops. The sheriff, assisted by the military, arrested some of the white men implicated in the shooting of the ne groes. The casualties are four negroes killed outright and eight or nine wound ed. The sheriff has advised the gov ernor that he felt able to preserve the peace, and the military were ordered home. Broke l'| a Jail Breaking .Scheme. WHITE PLAINS. N.
