Dakota, is delivered by carrier to all parts of the city at twenty-five cents per week, or $1.00 per month. SUBSCRIPTION BATES. A One month, postage paid. 5 1 Three months, postage paid Six months, postage paid One year, nostage paid As THE papers from the various coun ties have arrived containing the official vote, the TRIBUNE has carefully revised its table to correspond with them. In copying the carefully prepared table from the TRIBUNE, the Fargo Argus makes the same errors contained in the TRI BUNE'S previous table. The Argus should watch the TRIBUNE more carefully here after and it will not be misled into send ing the Associated Press dispatches based upon wrong information. THE ection in Washington territory is not quite so unanimous as in Dakota. A late dispatch reads as follows: "The official returns from all except one county and two precincts of another county in" Washington territory, give Armstrong a majority of nine for dele gate in congress, The county to hear from gave Brent, republican, in 1882, a majority of twenty. There will be a contest." BBMAICK is keeping up its reputation for lynching bees.—Grand Forks Herald. There never was a "lynching bee" at Bismarck or anywhere in the vicinity of Bismarck. The TRIBUNE defies the Herald to say as much for Grand Forks, where only last year the fastidious tastes of the people of that ciiy demanded an episode of this nature. GENERAIJ HAZEN'S annual report from the signal office, shows that 90 per cent, of the predictions made by the bureau during the past year have been verified. General Hazen is a-much better prophet now than he used to be when he was stationed in Dakota. THE TRIBUNE'S figures on Hamlin county, giving Wilson a majority, were a little off—in fact far from the fact. The county gave 530 majority for Gifford, as the corrected table elsewhere bhows. HON. B. F. PETTIGBEW is the leading spirit in the new railroad projected from Bock Bapids across to a connection with the Bismarck branch of the Burlington.

Eddy, general freight and passenger agent, Fargo & Southern railway, Continental hotel. EXPRESS matter is now being received by the Wells, Fargo & Co. express line as well as the Northern Pacific. It will be remembered that this matter has been in the courts for some time. Last week. Judge Deady in the TJnited States cir cuit court at Portland, Oregon, issued a mandatory injunction in the case of Wells, Fargo & Co. vs. the Northern Pa cific railroad company. The injunction orders 'that defendants be required to furnish plaintiff such facilities as it fur nishes any express company, over all its lines between Oregon and St. Paul, and connecting lines and links, plaintiff giv ing bonds in the sum or 325,000, that all costs, damages and charges which they may pay or earn will be made good, if in the end the case is decided in favor of defendant. The express company is to be granted the facilites ordered on all lines after Dec. 1st. FROM various parts of the territory come kind words of endorsement for Hon. E. A. Williams of this city. The Fargo Argus says: "Hon. E. A. Williams was the speaker of the last house and many who knew how well he performed his duties, are urging his re-election. Mr. Williams is not willing to push his claims, because "Bismarck has nothing to ask." This is eminently fair and patri otic for Bismarck, but perhaps the house will overlook the location, in order to secure an experienced presiding officer and a popular gentleman for th6 speak er's chair." THE Minneapolis Tribune says editor ially "The official notice of the comple tion of Dakota's new capitoi building was issued yesterday by Governor Pierce. By the terms or the act creating the cap ital commission, territorial officers are allowed thirty days from its completion to remove the records to the new build ing, so that before Christmas the citizens of our neighbor on the west will have their public records in an elegant and permanent home, furnished free of ex pense by the enterprise of the solid citi zens of Bismarck." ledgeville, the old capital of Georgia condemned by the southern press, which is an indication that the rebellious spirit does not exist-to any great extent in the south. THE anxiety of the Mandan Pioneer to become democratic is only equalled by the disgust of its democratic readers iat the sickly attempt. THE Philadelphia Call, a strong sup porter of Blaine during the campaign, believes that Mr. Cleveland, having com mitted himself on several occasions, should now be taken at his word and given encouragement. The Call says: "Governor Cleveland has given expres sion to his purpose on several points which interest the public. Of these two are important. He announces that he has no thought of disregarding the rights of the colored people of the country. He not only regards them as beyond the possibility of re-enslavement but propo ses to consider the constitutional amend ments as having been adopted, and as beyond change, except through constitu tional methods, and this he does not con sider possible. He announces, therefore, that the effect of his administration will bs-io confirm the colored people in the assurance of their rights. He also pledges himself to do his utmost to give business prosperity to the country. While he does not state specifically by what means he aims to do this, as, indeed, he could not, he. avows his purpose to do all possible to make business prosperous. These are his declarations. What ought our attitude to be toward them? The best thing possible is to take him at his word and accept his statements until there is evident reason for rejecting them.' He is elected and will enter on his presidential office. And while his career is yet to be developed, it is far better to cordially support him and ac cept his assurances than to treat him with suspicion. The country has all the elements of prosperity. Mr. Cleveland has the ambition of other men. He is as much interested as any in having the country prosperous. His party, greedy as individuals may be, can only retain power by deserving it. Mr. Cleveland understands this. Hence it is reasonable to think that he will try to give the coun try prosperity. Hence it is w'se to credit him with right intentions and so to give him moral aid. 'At all events he will do better under such treatment than if re garded with distrust. Thus we hope the people will take him at his word and look for results favorable to the common good. THE following appears in the St. Paul Dispatch of the 25th: Bismarck, Dak., Nov. 25.—[8pecial.]—A scheme is on foot here to arrange to have Bis marck reimbursed for her expense on the ipitol and to construct anew addition to the building. A bonding bill will be presented at the next session of the legislature. The amount which will be called for is about The above was never sent from Bis marck. It is a malicious falsehood made up from an editorial in the Yank ton Press and Dakotaian, of the 21st inst. Several times the people of Bismarck have in convention assembled, denied the truth of any statements that Bis marck ever expected one cent out of the territorial treasury 10 reimburse them for money put in the capitoi building, and the TRIBUNE has worn out several pencils in penning ths same statement. The capital was put up at auction, Bis marck bid it in and has complied with law in every respect. The building is now completed and turned over to the territory the governor has issued a proclamation declaring it ready for -oc cupancy and all Bismarck now asks is that the territory, through its legisla ture, accept |this magnificent gift as a monument of the enterprise of Bis marck, who had the audacity to give ab solutely and irrevocably over $100,000 in monev and 320 acres of land worth with prosperous times, several times as much more. BY the death of Henry A. Perkins, of the Sioux City Journal, the northwest loses one of its brightest newspapermen. He died of inflammatory rheumatism at his home, on the 22d inst., in his 49th year. The Perkins Bros, have made the Journal not only the leading paper of Sioux City, but cf the state of Iowa. The deceased was business manager and in no small degree is the success of the enterprise attaibuted to him. THE Fargo Argus aims to be correct authority in territorial matters and hav ing carefully copied the TRIBUNE'S table of votes, that paper might,with propriety be taken as authority on the recent vote in Dakota, but for the fact that in copy ing from the TRIBUNE typographical errors have crept into its table. For in stance that great and prosperous county of Spink is credited by the Argus with casting only 497 votes, and giving only 70 majority for Judge Gifford, when the fact is, as Cdn be seen by reference to the table elsewhere, the county cast 2981 votes and gives the republican nominee over 2,000 majority. There are only five counties in South Dakota about which the TRIBUNE is not able to give the Argus information. IT is feared by many in South Dakota that when the territory is divided the southern half will demand a prohibition clause in the constitution. There are eleven counties in South Dakota in which toiWMi M^Sffif nT- 7?ij --1 u* THE' BISMARCK'WEEKLY TRIBUNE, NOV'.'' 23^1884.*^ "-gr'- the commissioners don't grant license to sell intoxicating liquors. They are the counties of Spink, Kingsbury, Jerauld, Charles Mb, Sully, McPherson, Clark, Faulk, Union, Buffalo and Potter.: THE Fargo Republican halts in its imocratic tendency long enough to say: "The Bismarck TRIBUNE, speaking of probable changes under Cleveland's ad ministration', saysi that so far as Governor fierce is concerned, doubtless he need feel no uneasiness, as the influences which secured bis appointment have been, during the campaign, particularly friendly to Mr. Cleveland. Governor Pierce left the staff of the Chicago News to accept the governorship of Dakota. The News was anxious for the nomina tion of Mr. Arthur, and being disap pointed, opposed the republican nom inee throughout the campaign. There is another reason than that given by the TRIBUNE which should influence Mr. Cleveland in the premises. Governor Pierce has "shown himself to be an effi cient executive, and the people want him retained in the office. In consideration of the fact that Dakota has been kept out of the union for years by the democratic party, Mr. Cleveland ought to oblige the people in this small matter. A WEEK ago the Bismarck TRIBUNE sent to the Hssociated press the result of the election in this territory, giving the total vote about 85,000 and Judge Giffora's majority at 55,000. Now the F^rgo Argus sends out the same thing. The TRIBUNE is glad to see its figures sustained, and although it may seem a little strange to some, that the bright and lively Argus should be a week be hind, it must be admitted that the news is good and will stand repeating from time to time. It is a cold day and some fault of the TRIBUNE'S mailing clerk when the Argus gets left. DELEGATE RAYMOND has been in Jamestown during the past few days, and in an interview with the Capital, says: "There is great danger that the people of Dakota will weaken in their demands for division, of the territory, and be willing to accept admission as a whole for the sake of getting in. Division as a terri tory can be secured in time as a state, never. It will be a great mistake to ac cept admission previous to division. I cannot believe that the people have a right conception of the importance of division. It is not a local question—it is one of national importance. It is of vital interest to the entire northwest." YANKTON PRESS AND DAKOTAIAN: There are eighty thousand school chil dren in Dakota. The next few years will be of vast importance to these children. Direct taxation cannot fur nish them all the educational facilities they,are entitled to. Each township in Dakota contains 1,280 acres of land held for school purposes, but not available because Dakota is denied the privilege of statehood. If there was no other ar giynent in behalf of admission, this alone would suffice to convince the na tion of the justice of our claim. CINCINNATI MERCHANT TRAVELLER: We desire to inform Miss Daisy Dimple, who sent us a poem beginning: .'Jarth gives to my life no such wonderful charms As the glorified grasp of his strong white armi, And my lips only ask for that rapturous bliss Which begins with a and ends with an iss." that we always carry a loaded gun in our hip-rocket attachment, and she had bet ter take her darned old fireworks poetry to some other shop. CHICAGO NEWS: "Sassiety" girls are informed that "papa" and "mamma" are now deemed vulgar. This will probably take us back to the elegant and expres sive "old man" and "old woman." But what odds? The father will go on pay ing the bills and the mother will continue getting up and cooking breakfast. THE Fargo Argus complains of the incompleteness of its table of votes, anfl is particularly anxious about Lake county. It seems as if the Argus ought to have as much confidence in the TRI BUNE'S figures from this county as it has had in its carefully collected returns from other counties of the territory. THE Pierre Journal doesn't seem to be satisfied with the result of the election in that district and rather inappropriately says: "What's the use of wining and dining a sef of chumps because they hap pen through the accident of politics to be elected to the legislature. It is not in good taste under any circumstances." THE TRIBUNE, from its returns by counties figures that Jifdge Gifford has received about 90 per cent, of North Da kota's vote and 74 per cent, cf South Dakota's vote. The Mitchell Bepublican makes the TRIBUNE say "54 per cent." for South Dakota. It is probably a typo graphical error. BUD TAYLOR, of tbe Yankton Herald, will come as near controlling the pat ronage for Dakota as any other man, and being a prince among good fellows, the TRIBUNE is glad of it. THE Barnes county Becord is trying to work a reform movement of mastodon proportions. It has tbe audacity to ask delinquent subscribers to pay up. THE latest democratic brilliancy: Mr. John A. Logan need not expect-to-rate as United States senator from Illinois after March 4. What It Coats to Bon a Campaign— Opinion of a Fireworks Maker. [Rochester, N. Y., Democrat.] "Five million dollars!" "Yes, sir, five million dollars, of which two millions are spent for fireworks and three millions for uniforms, etc., every presidential campaign." Thus said Mr. James Palmer, the Rochester fireworks maker, to our re porter's inquiry. "The average spent in.off years for fireworks is over one million dollars." "Do we import the bulk of our fire works?" "No, sir, we import nothing but fire crackers. We make the rest in this country. There are only ten fireworks establishments in America." Upon invitation of Superintendent Frederick Fitz Fichner, the reporter in spected the Palmer establishment, not without some fear and trembling at first. When the superintendent said he had been blown up twice, the reporter fur tively asked: "Is not this business a little risky?" "Yes, I suppose it would be so con sidered by outsiders, but I have encour tered greater dangers than any I find here and don't feel concerned." "I don't quite catch your meaning?" "Well, I have been in this business many years and the constant though un conscious nervous strain has caused greater suffering than the explosions I have 'taken!' Many a day I would be very dizzy, and everything would get dark. At other times I could scarcely breathe from choking sensations. Then my appetite left me and I grew thin, weak "and lifeless. I was drowsy by day and wa eful by night. My side pained me, my back ached, my limbs burned, I bloated fearfully and one leg got paralyzed. For ten months I suf fered desperately* and two prominent physicians gave me up for a dead man, sure." "You don't look it now?" "No, that's so, but it was a fact, just the same. When I found out my trouble, I at once resorted to Warner's safe cure and a dozen bottles put me in possession of the best health I ever expected to en joy, and I was pronounced incurably sick with bright's disease. It is the most wonderful medicine in the world." •'Indeed. You area fortunate man. Is there any falling off in the fireworks business this year?" "Not at all. On the contrary it grows more popular every year, and this year we have done an extraordinary business. The American people are getting quite as fond of display as the mercurial French man, and they manifest it by rockets and volcanoes, political banner, campaign uniforms, etc. I reckon that 810,000,000 won't cover the incidental political ex penses of a presidential campaign."

THE Philadelphia Call fears that the worst feature of the campaign is that General Butler is now laying his pipes for 1888,1892,1896 and 1900. IT is expected that next spring the shipment of calyes to Dakota and Mon tana will far exceed that of last spring, which was by no means small.

A CORRESPONDENT named Montgomery writes to the St. Paul Globe, from Ips wich, that with the exception of the poli ticians and a few persons in the extreme southern part of the territory the true sentiment of the people in Dakota is against division. Perhaps Ipswich has aspirations for capital honors. BLACK HILLS TIMES: One of the strange coincidences of politics occurred in the case of John Manning and a cousin, Richard Manning, each of whom, as re turned, was defeated for sheriff by two votes—Johnnie in Lawrence county, by a vote of 2,010 t« 2,008, and his cousin in Iowa 'unty, Wisconsin, by a vote of 2,393 to 2,391. A STATISTICAL Philadelphia paper has made the following list of election bets that still remain unpaid: About 3,000,000 sweet lives. Several hundred thousand necks. Nearly 10,000,000 boots.

FARGO ARGUS: Since the return of Mr. Burke, the Jamestown Capital, acknowledges that "fool friends" are a detriment.

Unless congress should des ignate a temporary seat of government for South Dakota until the same be comes a state there would be a grand scramble among the aspiring South Da kota towns to secure the coveted prize. And even if congress should do so the scramble would follow upon the terri tory's assuming statehood.
