The funeral procession was composed of more than 3,000 troops, consisting of marines, militia, United States regu lars, artillery and cavalry, in charge of Bear Admiral Kimberly.

The casket was covered with royal purple velvet, with silver handles and ornaments. Upon a silver tablet on the lid was this inscription: "David D. Porter, Admiral United States Navy.

Sherman will be placed in their burial casket in the morning and taken to the front parlor on the first floor. Until now they have lain in the upper chamber in which the general died. The great commander will be dressed in the full uniform of a general of the nited States army. Until Thursday none but members of the family will be permitted to see the body. The suiallness of the house will admit of only a few viewing the remains, and only those will be ad mitted who make a special request. This will be the only occasion upon which the remains can be seen. During the morning hours there were but few visi tors at the house, but in the afternoon a number of military officers called, among them being Gen. Miles. He arrived about 3 o'clock and remained in the house about half an hour. The Funeral Train. The funeral car will be placed on the regular St. Louis fast express on the Pennsylvania road at 6:30 Thursday evening. The train is expected to arrive in St. Louis Saturday morning at 7:30. Only a few of the general's family and relatives will go to St. Louis, and only one car will be used for them. Presi dent Robert, of the Pennsylvania, has tendered the family the use of his special car. No extra cars will be allowed for those desiring to accompany the remains on their westward journey. The members of the G. A. R. at Pitts burg desire to pay special honor to the general's remains at that place. itispubllcan te»|u Club Sfeetiug..

It is now declared that the vote to ex punge the resubmission resolution from the senate journal has no effect on in validating the resolution whioh holds as much new as ever. That resolution was elincbed in the only way known to legis lative methods, by a motion to recon sider, and a yote to lay that motion on the table. If the journal had been destroyed by fire or lost or a cleri cal error in the vote been made there is no one who would question the validity of the passage of the resubmission reso lution, after having gone through both honses.There appears to be nothing in the constitution of a contrary nature to this, and in the opinion of good parliamentar ians the expunging vote has not in any way effected the passage of the resubmis sion resolution. It will go before the next legislature and if passed, then to the people for their action. In regard to the capital removal resolution passing the senate the vote esi«iintfiog that reaolution shows that a tjority of the wnate are now against it, but further action on that matter can ha dly be foretold. The members ap pear to be putting in considerable tioie on measures of speculative character and much legislative confusion may be expected in oonsequence. Eldridge Motes. F. W.

The Indian outbreak on the big Sioux reservation cost f'2,000,000, —$1,000,000 for transportation and suppliee, 1200,000 for extra clothing and camp equipage, $100,000 to replace the horses worn out, and the remainder for various items. A Washington dispatch says that the Indian bureau baa granted permission for the removal of Sitting Bull's tepee from the Sioux reservation, as well as other belongings of the celebrated war rior. Tbey certainly will make an inter esting collection of curios and will no doubt form part of North Dakota's ex hibit at the World's Fair in 1893. The old Groton, South Dakota, ar tesian well still runs mud and sand as it has been doing for years. Recently it had a big cave in. It is fearod that this well will give the town trouble yet, as it is located near the center of the business portion. The trouble rises from the fact that the water worked its way up on the outside of the pipe. The result is the earth keeps falling in. The Bad Lands of Dakota are com posed of a white clay, which, by the ac tion of rains, has been cut into hillocks. They are not high, seldom more than 40 or 50 feet but it is up one and down an other the whole way. You cannot fol low the watercourses, for there are none A gujly 40 f»«et deep, with a foot and a half of mud at the bottom, is the nearest approach to a water-course in the whole region. At every few yards you must stop, and with spade and shovel cut a path down the side of a hill in order to descend, and then turn up the side of theoneopnosite in order to get up again. The mud is as sticky as tar, and in going a few yards the wheels of a wagon become solid round cake3, and all the mules that you can hitch to it will not be able to pull it a foot further. Then the spades are brought and the wheels cleared, the op eration being repeated two or three times in every hundred yards. The ex tent of the Bad Lands in Dakota is probably 100 miles from noith to south, by fifteen to thirty miles wide and if the Indians find a better stronghold in in this country the plainsmen would like tc hear of it. Ingersoll on the Farmers' Alliance. "I am glad that the farmers have or ganized—glad that they are getting to gether and talking about their own in terests. Tbey will be greatly benefitted by discussion. It will be a great thing for them to find out what can be done for their benefit by the government, and what cannot be done. The farmers have a hard time. They work early and late, and have few luxuries. We cannot get along without the farmers, and I want the farmers to have their share of the good things. The farmers ought to say their say, and stand by their convictions, and defend themselves. Tbey cannot de pend on the merchants and bankers to take care of their interests. Thsy must take care of themselves, and for one I am glad that they are trying to do it. "Whether this country is controlled by one party or the other may not be of in finite importance, but it is important to the last degree that all the industries of the republic should be protected. This country rests on the nobility of labor on the rights of man. Labor is the highest form of prayer and it is the prayer of all others, that the government should answer." Entitled to the Best.

EDITOK or THB ALERT: I had not expected to ask space of you again, in which to further discuss the state banking law, but I think you will cencede to me the right to present and to your readers the privilege of knowing what the real issue is. The Capital charges me with being a "straw man builder,"but immediately wanders off in to a personal controversy and a criticism of the methods of national banking, while neither it or any other paper has taken the trouble to put an end to all the controversy by merely publishing the provisions of the state banking law, which they are seeking to repeal aud thua allowing the public to determine the case on its merits. Apparently tbey doubt the intelligence of their readers or they are afraid to submit the law itself to the public, robbed of all local coloring and prejudice, to be judged by what it proposes to do in the way of giving greater security to depositors and in creased revenue to our counties. I ask you therefore to publish the following synopsis of the law, which has been sent to the press of Noith Dakota with the same request. If generally printed it will prove that the newspapers at least are willing to allow public Bentiment to determine tbe question: THE STATE BANKING LAW. Sections 1 to 4 provide that not lees than three persons, one third of whom must be residents of this state, may or ganize as a state bank, use a corporate seal, sue and be sued, etc. Sec. 5. Follows closely the National banking act, and limits the purchase and holding of real estate to, (1) such as may be necessary for its use as a banking house (2), such as shall be mortgaged to it in good faith by way of security, for debts previously contracted (3), such as shall be conveyed to it in good faith, in satisfaction of debts previously con tracted in the course of its dealings (4), ouch as it may procure under judgment or foreclosure to secure debts due to it. Sec. 6. Requires a capital of not less than $5,000 in towns of 500 or less popu lation $10,000 in towns of 500 to 1,000 $30,000 in towns of 2,000 to 3,000 $50, 000 in towns over 3,000. Sections 7 to 14 relate to the govern ment of the corporation and its inciden tal powers. Sec. 15. Provides that no part of the capital shall be withdrawn in the form of dividends or otherwise, nor any divi dend be paid while the bad debts or debts six months past due exceed the undi vided profits. Sec. 17. Every association shall make at least four reports each year to the public examiner. Verified by t"e oath of the president or cashier and attested by at least two of the directors. Such report shall exhibit in detail and under appropriate heads the resources and liabilities of the association. and in the same forui shall be pub lished in A newspaper published in the city or county where such association is located. The public examiner shall also have power to call for special reports whenever in his judgment they are necessary. Sec. 18. Provides that stockholders shall be liable for double the amount of stock held by them. (Thus the real re sponsibility of a 350,000 bank would be $100,000.) Seo. 20. Requires each bank to have on hand at all times in available funds 20 per cent of its total deposits. Sec. 24. Provides that any banker making a false statement or report shall be subject to imprisonment in the state's prison. Seo. 25. No banking association shall receive any deposit whatever when insol vent. Sec. 26. Provides penalty of fine and imprisonment for accepting any deposit when insolvent. Seo. 27. It shall be unlawful for any individual, firm or corporation to con tinue to transact a banking business or to receive deposits, for a period longer than six months immediately after the passage and approval of this act, without first having complied with and organized under the provisions of this act. Any person violating the provisions of this section either individually or as an inter ested party in any association or corpor ation shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction thereof be fined not less than five hundred nor more than $1,000 or imprisonment in the county jail not less than 90 days or by either or both at the discretion of the court. (The above is the section which the private banks are now trying to re peal. As every private banker in this state is today doing business in defiance of this law the public will readily under stand the disinterested unanimity with which they are demanding tbe repeal of the law. The repeal of this section prac tically repeals the entire law as under no other section can they be compelled to organize.) Sec. 29 requires that the public exam iner shall examine the state banks as often as he shall deem necessary. The above bill was approved Feb. 20,'90, and many of the private bankers of the state accepted its provisions and or ganized as state banks. A number of the private bankers, however, refused to do so, and organized together for defense. A test case was made by them and car ried to the supreme court on the ground of the unconstitutionality ot the law. The Supreme court decided against them and in favor of the law. They then organized to se cure the repeal of the law. Their work has been quietly done the general reading public has been igno rant or deceived as to the true character of the state banking law. Many voters have been induced through such igno rance or because of the personal influ ence of some banking friend, to sign pe titions for the repeal of tbe law. In order that the people of North Dakota may pass upon this law, and by their voices and through their influence upon their members of the legislature make known their wishes, this synopsis of the law is offered to the fair-minded press of the state, with tbe request that it be published. If the people of North Da kota think the present law an unjust law, and calculated to work an injury to our state or to any considerable body of our citizens, it Bhould be repealed. On the contrary, if the results of a uniform, well guarded banking system commend themselves to our people, then the law shonld stand regardless of the fifteen or twenty men who think it unfavorable to their personal interests.

Changes of Climate Kill more people than is generally known. Particularly Is this the case in instances where the constitution is delicate, and among eur immigrant population seeking new homes in those portions of tbe West, and where ma larial aud typnoid levers prevail at certain seasons ot tbe year.

Gibson, of the whisky trust, has been indicted by the grand jury. He will be arrested at once and compelled to give bonds for bail before Judge Shephard. The law under which Gibson will be held is contained in section 54. of chap ter 38 of the criminal code, relating to the possession, manufacture and guilty knowledge of explosives intended to be used for the injury of any building or person. The case against Gibson was taken up by the grand jury shortly after 2 o'clock. Special Agent Brooks being the first witness. Pie told the jury ot* his work in unearthing the conspiracy to destroy the Sliufeldt distillery and De war's part in it. Dewar, the next wit ness, displayed such amass of damaging evidence against Gibson that little, if any, wsis needed afterwards. Dewar had the letters received from Gibson, and also the bottle of fluid and the in fernal machine alleged to have been sent to him by the secretary.
