Senate Passes the House Bill Opening the Fort Buford Reservation. Senator Hansbrough has secured the passage in the senate of the bill throwing open to settlers the Fort Bu ford abandoned military reservation in North Dakota and Montana. The bill hits passed the house and goes to the president for approval. The pro posed law will open for entry thou sands of acres of desirable lands in North Dakota. The bill' is one of the most important to the state that has passed in a number of years, and the result is due to the efforts of Senator Hansbrough and Repesentative Spald ing. The passage of this bill is an import ant piece of legislation for settlers along the Missouri river and in the western part of the state. The reser vation is the largest in the state, con sisting of ."ioo.imo acres. Much of the land is valuable grazing land, some of it heavily timbered and there will be an excellent opportunity for settlers to locate or for ranchmen to purchase hay and grazing land. Under the bill actual settlers are given the preference in making entries. The bill will with out doubt be signed by the president and the land will then have to be sur veyed. Senator Hansbrough has in troduced a bill providing an appropria tion of $11,000 for the work of survey. Chloken-Uoo A Mites conquered.

Milwaukee, Wis. MAKE THE HOBOS WORK. The following from the Jamestown Alert is worthy of consideration of Bismarck and all the cities of the state during the open season for hobos: It has been suggested that as the tramp season approaches the city au thorities should prevent the usual large number of professional tramps from idling and begging around town, by enforcing the ordinance against vag rancy. If this ordinance is properly enforced tramps can be made to work on the streets and once the town makes it known that tramps are required to labor on the streets these parties will fight very shy or the place. Some of the streets already need cleaning badly and will soon be grown up to weeds. A great deal of work is needed now and more will be. It is easy to tell between a professional tramp and an honest laborer looking for work, and officers of the law would seldom make a mistake in hauling up the wrong man. The experiment was tried at Buffalo. N. D., of making the tramps work on the streets and it was remark able in how short a time the tramps heard of it and how free the town be came from the professional tourists. If Jamestown wants to solve the tramp question and keep the streets clean at the same time, enforce the city ordin ances that are passed for that purpose. It has been suggested, also, in cases where men are not arrested and want a meal or two, they be given employ ment and allowed to earn it by work on the streets, instead of begging it.

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED, by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflated con dition of the mucuous lining of the Eustachian tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, .and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucuous surface. We will give one hundred dollars for any case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that can not be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circu lars, free. F. J. CHENEY, Toledo, O.

The supreme court nas handed down an important decision, sustaining Judge Pollock, in the case of the Min neapolis & Northern Elevator Co. vs. Traill County—an action growing out of the refusal of the above corporation to pay taxes on 20,000 bushels of grain in its elevator at Belmont, which grain it claimed had been sold to parties re siding in another state. The law provides that elevator com panies must pay taxes on all grain found in their warehouses on April 1, whether they own it or not, and the district court held accordingly. An appeal was taken to the supreme court on the ground of unconstitutionality, but the latter tribunal sustained the decision of the lower court. J. Q.

Sunday morning about o'clock, Bob May, in company with a man named McGrady, tried to locate a good place to swim a few head of cattle across the Missouri, about three miles east of Williston.

One Found Guilty and Another Sen* tenced to be Hanged at Minot September 14. At Minot after being out seventeen hours the jury in the Charles Curtis murder case brought in a verdict of guilty of murder in the second- degree, fixing the penalty at twelve years. Cur tis' crime was the shooting of William Whitely at Williston last Christmas morning. Whitely accused Curtis of having stolen $l.r0 from him, and fol lowed the charge with a blow. Cur tis pulled a revolver and shot five times, two shots taking effect. Whitely died almost instantly. The case was transferred to Ward county on account of local sentiment.. Judge Morgan sentenced Hans Thorpe, the wife murderer, to be hanged on Sept. 14. When asked if he had anything to say, Thorpe smiled and said: "Only that you comply with my request that I made on the 2Sth day of April." It was upon that day that Thorpe, in open court, begged the jury to find him guilty of murder in the first degree and the judge to pro nounce tae death penalty. After sen tence was pronounced, Thorpe said: "Thank you, your honor, I am satis fied." BEWARE OF A COUGH. A cough is not a disease but a symp tom.

In one bunch that sudden ly disappeared there were sixty horses, but twenty of them were recovered. Among the Indians is Blackhawk, the Indian who was mixed up in the murder of the Spicer family in Em mons county several years ago, and who escaped hanging narrowly. His arrest at Standing Rock has aroused considerable talk in that part of the state and threats have been openly made that if Blackhawk shows up at Mandan an., nearby settlements where the feeling against him is still intense, he may not escape a hanging so easily.
