Yesterday's Minneapolis Journal con tained a two column article on the women's clubs and organizations of Jamestown, one of a series of articles which the correspondents of that enter prising journal have been preparing concerning the women of the northwest. This article is exceedingly interesting and complimentary to the ladies of this city and sets forth their organized activi ties.

To those who have given the subject no thought it will be somewhat in the na ture of a surprise to know just what the women of Jamestown are doing and have accomplished along these lines of work.

The personal injury suit of Geo. A. Bennett against the Northern Pacific Railroad comoany, which was decided in favor of the plaintiff and damages awarded by a jury at the last term of the district court in this city, has been re versed by tho supreme court.

The suit has been tried three times in the district, and three times in the state supreme.court, and is now sent back for its fourth appearance before this court. Supt. C. C. Smith returned this morn ing from Hillsboro, where be attended the high school council. The meetings, he states, were of much interest and well attended. W. E.

Kennedy, a mem ber of the state university at Grand Forks, president, and an executive board consisting of County Superintendents Stockwell, of Grafton W. T. Perkins, of Bismarck, and W. E. Hoover, of Lari more. The next meetisg will be held at Grand Forks a year hence. A committee, consisting of Superintendents Wood, De vine and Fancher, was elected to draft a free text book bill to be presented at the coming session of the legislature. An expression of the satisfactory results ob tained in counties where uniformity of text books has been maintained, strongly warrants the advisability of such a measure. liaker Gets It. Bismarck correspondent Fargo Argus: I understand Miss Bates has appointed W. C. Baker, of the Grand Forks Herald, deputy superintendent of public instruc tion. Mr. Baker will have charge of ttie office work and the general business features of her ofllce, while she will look after the purely educational, doing the field and institute work. F. W. Cathro will help organize the work of the office, and remain during the legislative ses sion. Miss Maggie Davidson, as hereto fore announced, will be the stenographer. There was much to recommend Hon. J. M. Devine for the position, but his ap pointment, Miss Bates felt, would give color to the story put afloat by probably a well meaning friend during the cam paign that she gained her nomination for the ofllce through a deal made witb Devine whereby he was not only to be come her deputy but her husband also, in return for his withdrawal in her favor at the convention. The story not only put Devine in a position where he could say nothing in advocacy of Miss Bates during the oampaign, but also made it impossible for her to use to the beet ad vantage bis splendid abilities as an edu cator. I am aware that the young man who wrote the article does not see any impropriety in it, atid yet the effect has been to injure both. A wild cat was killed near Napoleon recently. Henry Strand, of Ellendale, was killed by the falling of a bucket while digging a well. CONFLICTING REPORTS. Concerning the Pope's Posi tion on Secret Societies and the Church. Bishops of America Consider ing the Question. --Their Decision Necessary Democrats in Congress not Able to Assume Legis lative Responsibility. Washington-, Dec. 20th.—Associated press dispatches fiom lioine says: It is not true that the status of secret so cieties, Son&of Temperance, Odd Fellows and Knights of Pythias, have been set tled for members of the Catholic church in the United States. There is the be.st of authority for saying that the decree condemning these societies and a form for promulgation of the decree has been sent out by a congregation of Roman theologians, andj have been, by order of the pope, ^submitted to the bishops of America, from whom tt pope wishes to hear before his final decision. The bishops of the various states of Amerca are now consulting together and writing to Rome their opinions. The submission of the decree to American prelates was confidential. Another dispatch from Washington gives further particulars as follows: The method of executing the Catholic church edict against membership in the Knights *of Pythias,JOdd Fellows and other soci eties, is now receiving the careful con sideration of church authorities. Mgr. Satolli has transmitted the decision to the heads of all dioceses throughout the country, and it remains for them to con vey it to parish priests and for the latter to give it practical application, as to time and execution,feach having considerable latitude,as to how he shall act. No time is set within which the heads of the dio cese may act, Some, already, have noti fied their parish priests to read the pro hibition to the congregations yesterday at announcements preceding the masses. Other bishops have not required public announcement to the congregations as communications from Rome and from Satoli do not direct the formal publica tion and they make it effective largely through the confessional. It therefore may take some time for the papal decree to become fully effective and to reach those persons who continue their mem bership in secret societies after the order of the church becomes known. DEPENDING OX| REPUBLICANS. Cleveland .Being Deserted by Demo cratic Congressmen. Washington, Dec. 28, 1894.—Mr. Cleveland has more confidence in the coming republican congress than in the existingjdemocratic congress, or else he is pretenditg that he has, in order to induce the democrats in congress to pass the Carlisle currency bill or some other bill along the same lines. It is certain that a hiutjalmost as strong as an official notification has been given prominent democrats in congress, direct from Mr. Cleveland, that unless this congress passes some]! financial bill, of a nature satisfactory to the administration, an extra session of the new republican con gress will be called soon after the fourth of next March, for the express purpose of dealing with financial matters. The hint has not, however, had the effect intended. Democrats say that as a matter of party policy, the democrats in congress cannot do better than to shift the responsibility of financial legislation to the next con gress, in the hope that the republicans may make some mistake that will give the democrats a chance to elect the next president, something they acknowledge themselves to be without at this time. Republicans' smile at this condition of affairs and point to the fact that no con gress controlled by republicans has ever attempted to shirk any of its responsi bilities. Republican congresses have made mistakes, but they were mistakes caused by action, and never by fear of ac tion. Republicans have been approached and asked to name what amendments to the currency bill would be necessary to secure their support for the bill. None have been named, however, as nothing could induce republicans to support tho bill. There seems to be a plot amoug a few members of his own party to try to make ex-speaker Reed believe that he will en danger his presidential chances by ac cepting the speakership of the next house Minto's Destructive Tire. Minto, N. D., Dec. 30.—The most de structive lire for years broke out at 5 o'clock Saturday morning and was not controlled until S o'clock. It started in Currier's meat market, and before the department arrived the building was a total loss. The fire spread to the east and west, consuming McKay's drug store, Cairncroes hardware, Copp's dressmaking, Moore's bakery and three saloons run by Smith, Currie and Kling er.
