SOME PRAIRIE BREEZES. THE PATE OP A PARAMOUNT ISSUE. Two specters met by the road one flay, One of them broken and old and gray, Bearing a staff and with hollow cheek Staggering on, but so worn and weal^ That often he stumbled and often fell, The other was young and garbed so well That he scorned the older with foolish pride And sought to pass on the other side. Then up from the dust where the older lay A thin cracked voice was raised to say: "I am the Crime of *73, Possibly you remember .me, Nay, shun me not in thy height of pride Nor seek to pass on the other side, You are Imperialism—yes, I know, I was like you—four years ago. "Yes, I was petted and proud like you, And never a man but had heard and knew Of me and I fought for my masters well, But I lost the flghit on the field I fell, And my masters saw me fall and fled And left me there on the field as dead. I gave my blood for the coward crew And they passed me up—as they'll do to you. The old, old warrior shook with sobs And muttered sadly: "The slobs! The slobs!" Pushed from his brow his matted locks, And spake: "They left me on the rocks The cowardly scuttlers, the pirate crew, And so I say they will do to you. You are the Paramount Issue now, You have the laurels upon your brow, You have the trappings and you the garb, But wait four years, and they'll throw the barb So far in you, when you meet with rout That you'll never be able to get it out. "I was a Paramount Issue once, I fought for them like a bloomin' dunce, Ihey decked me out with a rusty sword, And set me up on a horse! Good Lord! I rode out against the enemy And they didn't do a thing to me, They cracked my head and they blacked my eye, They carved me up like a pumpkin pie, My features up to a peak they cuffed. And the sawdust with which I was stuffed Ban out like blood, till at last I fell, And still they cried out: "Give him— no quarter!" The old, old specter wept. Said he: "That's what the enemy did to me, Out of the battle I came a wreck, And now I have got it—in the neck. I am the Crime of '73 And they haven't a single place for me, They say I'm old—that I'm only bosh. And I can't get a pension, I can't, by gosh! I tried to enlist for the fight this year But they seem to think my name will queer The game. "Go back to the ranks," they said, 'And keep darn still or we'll break your head!' I who was once more than a king, I who they said was the Only Thing, I who was proud, the Greatest Crime That ever was done in the sweep of time, I, the old warrior, brave and true Have been passed up for a kid like you!" The voice was stilled and the youth passed on, Muttered the specter when he was gone: "I, a warrior, old and grim, In a dozen ware passed up for him! But I can wait"—and his voice was grim, "Wait, till they throw the gaft in him!" The light of the mellow, yellow moon, Pell on the Great Crime, there, eft soon, Whetting the barb of a big harpoon! •J. W. P. Hello, Tedlly! AH th' west is watchin' you, Hello, Teddy!

IN STEVENS' CODRT. Cape Nome Paper Tells of the Trial of of a Horsethief in Judge Stevens' Court. Witness Volubly Profane, for which He is Admonished by the Court. The Tribune is in receipt of copies of the Cape Nome Daily News and Chronicle of August 25, giving many interesting particulars of Nome life and developments. In the Chronicle is an account of the trial of a horse thief in Judge Stevens' court, of which it is said: "Thomas Carlton appeared in Judge Stevens' court yesterday afternoon on a charge of horse-stealing. Now horse-stealing rivals murder, innocent by comparison in the sturdy old state of Dakota, where the judge hails from. So Carleton was up against a hard game. A peculiar vein of amusement was infused into the case, however, at a critical moment, and the serious aspect of Carlton's case, as far as Judge Stevens was concerned, abated to the nominal level of a coun try where horses are not the only ob ject of a thief's greed. The case moved in the usual digni fied fashion until Tom Johnson, an au thority on horses, was called upon the stand. Johnson shuffled through the crowd and took his seat on the witness stand. The attorneys on both sides began to fire a fusilade of questions in John son's direction, and they wrought him up in his testimony to a boiling point. Johnson emitted a volley of oaths that made the court room blue, but Judge Stevens saw* that it was per fectly natural with the witness and he meant no offense to the dignity of the court, so the judge simply suggested that he deliver his testimony in un adorned biblical English. Johnson took the hint and proceeded with his recital. He rattled off a few sen tences and again dropped into his own peculiar method of making his state ments more forceful. This time Judge Stevens rebuked the witness in a ser ious fash'ion, whereat Johnson bowed his head and gracefully lifted a bunch of false hair from 'his cranium saying, "Your honor, I take off my hat to you." Both judge and spectators burst in to a fit of laughter that lasted several .minutes, at the conclusion of which Judge Stevens excused both witness and defendant."

BISMARCK WEEKtY TRIBUNE: FRIDAY, SEPT. 21 1900. UNFAIR REPORTS. Editor Jewell Corrects Unfair Reports of the Attitude of Slope States Attorneys. Cases Properly Brought for Violation of Prohibition Law Will be Pushed. Grand Porks Herald: Considerable feeling has been stirred up over the charges recently made against the state's attorneys of the slope couities to the effect that they would refuse to procecd against any of those who WJVO openly violating the prohibition law o/ the state. Secretary M. H. Jewell of the republican state central commit ce says that as far as the state's attorney of Burleigh county is concerned that he speaks advisedly when he says that when information is properly filed against any pigger with the state's at torney of Burleigh county that the case will be pushed just as vigorously as in any county in the state and that as far as the state's attorney is con cerned there is no effort to protect the violators of the law. Mr. Jewell says that in his opinion the same is true of the county attorneys of the other slope counties, and that any time that the in formation is filed in a proper manner and sufficient evidence furnished to warrant a prosecution, the necessary steps will be taken to have the offend ers dealt with according to law. Regarding the wholesale prosecu tions instituted by outside parties he says that public sentiment is against piling up expenses on the counties where the evidence is not sufficient to secure a conviction, and that for that reason the recent decision of Judge Winchester would meet with the ap proval of the-majority of the people of his district. In this connection another party from the slope said yesterday: "The people of the valley counties do not ap preciate the conditions that exist in the slope counties. Public sentiment at the present time favors the sale of liquor, and it is very difficult to secure a jury that will convict a pigger no matter how conclusive the evidence may be against him.. For this rea son the majority of the state's attor neys are not looking around for evi dence for the reason that in nearly ev ery case it would beimpossible to se cure a conviction, and the only result would be the piling up of expenses to the counties which would form the basis of most vigorous kicks on the part of the taxpayers who would have to foot the bills." In this same connection Secretary Jewell says that there seems to be a general impression in some quarters that the combine that nominated the state ticket at the convention held in this city is in favor of resubmission and will work to that end. This he states is a false idea, and that as far as the republican leaders of the slope counties are concerned there will never be a move made for resubmission un til it is made by the prohibitionists themselves, who may at some future time determine that a high license law would operate more successfully than the present prohibition law, and give moite general satisfaction both to the liquor and anti-liquor elements. Mr. Jewell says furthermore that the senti ment in favor of enforcing the present law is growing stronger every day in the slope counlties. Not that the law is growing any more popular necessar ily, but on general principles, the idea being entertained by many that as long as the law is on the statute books of the state it should be strictly enforced. An official from one of the- 6lope counties who was in the city a few days ago said that another fact that was not appreciated by the people of this section of the state, where public sentiment was overwhelmingly in favor of the strict enforcement of the law, was that the liquor sellers on the slope were not of the class that engaged in the traffic in the valley counites. In the northern part of the state in the valley counties it is considered a dis reputable business t# sell liquor con trary to law and with out very few ex ceptions those who engage in it are of a very shady class, and belong either to the floating population or to people who have no interests in the commun ity where they operate. On the slope the conditions are different People are in the business who have large property interests and who are consid ered as respectable as any citizens in the state. For this reason it can eas ily be seen why lit is so difficult in many cases to secure a conviction. He said but a short time ago a man was arrested for pigging in his home town. The. man arrested was one of the most prominent men in the town and was the owner of the best business blocks in the place. The evidence against him was conclusive but the jury re turned a verdict of "not guilty," not because he wasn't guilty but for the reason that public opinion in that com munity was not In favor of his convic tion. He concluded by saying: "If the same class of people were engaged Common Talk with Women If a person is ill and needs a medi cine is it not wise to get one that has stood the test of time and has hun dreds of thousands of cures to its credit 1 A great many women who are ill try everything they hear of in the way of medicine, and this experimenting with unknown drugs is a constant menace to their already impaired health. This seems to us very unwise, for there are remedies which are no ex periments and have been known years and years to be doing only.good. Take for instance Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound for thirty years its record has been one un broken chain of success. No medicine for female ills the world has ever known has such a record for cures. It seems so strange that some people will take medicines about which they really know nothing, some of which might .be, and are, really harmful while on the other hand it is easily proved that over one million women have been restored to health by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. We have published in the news* papers of the United States more genuine testimonial letters than have ever been published in the interest of any other medicine. All this should, and does, produce a spirit of confidence in the hearts of women which is difficult to dislodge, and when they are asked to take some thing else they say, No, we want Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Com pound, which has been tried, and never found wanting, whose reliability is established far beyond the experi mental stage." We have thousands of letters like the following addressed to Mrs. Pinkham, showing that Monthly Suffering Is Al ways Cured by Lydia Em Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, alsp Back ache and Bearing-down palnsm "I suffered untold agony, every month and could get no relief until I tried your medicine your letter of ad vice and a few bottles of Lj'dia E.

After reading so many testi monials for your medicine, I concluded to try it. I began to pick up after taking the first bottle, and have con tinued to gain rapidly, and now feel like a different woman. I can recom mend Lydia E.

I had four tumors in two years. I went through treatment with doctors, but they did me no good, and I thought 1 would have to resort to morphine. The doctor said that all that could help me was to have an operation and have the womb removed, but I had heard of Mrs. Pinkham's medicine and decided to try it, and wrote for her advice, and after taking her Vegetable Compound the tumors were expelled and I began to get stronger right along, and am as well as ever before.

Opening of the New Coal Mine will be Nccessary to Supply the Demand. (From the News.) A party of distinguished gentlemen arrived on a spenial train over the Bismarck. Washburn & Great Falls railway from Bismarck yesterday at 2 o'clock p. m. The party consisted of Gen. W. D. Washburn, General Man ager 12. C. Washburn, Stanley Wash burn, of Minneapolis: C. M. Emery, of Boston, Mass. Chief Engineer J. M. Dixon, General Traffic Manager E. H. Walker, and Hon. John Satterlund of Bismarck. The party paid a visit to the mines to the east of town, and the progress being made was favorably commented upon by the gentlemen. The party leaves on the afternoon train for Bismarck. General Washburn stated that the lignite from these mines was highly spoken of wherever introduced, as a superior grade and as a fuel and steam producer was receiving the highest praise. This coal he said was prov ing eminently satisfactory and its uni versal use is now creating a demand which will be difficult to supply until the new mine is in active operation. Work is being rushed with a view to have 'the new mine in operation with out delay. The senator is pleased with the new depot and the improve ments at Hotel Wilton are proving satisfactory. The forward progress of our town in general is pleasing to Senator Washburn whose spirit of ap preciation is manifest by the enter prise shown in the improvements now being made here by the railroad man agement. Dr. F. R. Smyth and wife accom panied by Sister Boniface, arrived from Washburn Thursday, where they had been visiting with friends. They departed for Bismarck on Jie afternoon train. Sister Boniface is the Sister Superior at the hospital in Bismarck, an institution which is a great credit to the city, and one which is highly spoken of by everyone.
