President Pbelpe oc- j cupied the chair. A SEW iaik GROUND SCnEME. Tim Guam* yesterday predicted that a new union fair ground's scheme would be .sanc tioned and presented to the board of trade yesterday. Sure enough, Mr. Evans, from the oil committee appointed to investigate the . matter brought ' up the subject. Hi- stated that Mr. liiirersoll, of St. Paul, had requested that the board of trade committee be re- j newed and the matter thoroughly consid- i ered. Judge Atwatcr suggested the purchase of j the Ramsey county poor farm, explaining i that the property is offered for sale "at $750 i per acre. This project was espoused by J. V Nind. j He said the property i.- actually a mile nearer Minneapolis than St. Paul and easily acces- i Bible from either city, via the Manitoba railway and also the Northern Pacific whent that road is completed direct to St. Paul. Dr. Evans Stated that N. P. Clark, of St. ! Cloud, who has .-.iways taken a lively interest In our fairs, bad called upon him and urged the project of holding union fairs. Be held : that it was not only in the interests of the i two cities, but the entire slate. He urged that the two cities !t.suc bonds I rtbe pur chase of the lands, and that the legislature make appropriation to erect the buildings. MINXEIJAJU. Mr. Loring brought up the Mian. 6cherae. He urged that section 17 and par Of section IS be purchased, which includes both tide* of the river, and that the buildings be erected on the east bank. Condemnation proceedings was his idea of acquiring the title. Judge Atwatcr took occasion to endorse the project. He thought the present condi tion of the falls a disgrace to the city, and the new scheme will beautify and preserve the beautiful and romantic waterfall. If should be made a state park as well as a nnion fair grounds. The (alia have national fame, and are probably visited by more tourists than any other waterfalls save Ni agara. 'i be matter was finally referred bach to the old committee with instructions to act, and C. M. Luring and I. C. Whitney were ap pointed us alternates. A communication was received from the national board of trade, requesting that the Minneapolis board lead to the secretary euoli subjects as it wanted discussed at the" next annual meeting of the national board, which is to be held In Washington, December 19, and Messrs. Atwater and Wyman were ap pointed a committee to propose the required subjects. A communication from the Boston (society of civil engineers, respecting a proposition to establish the metric system of weight* and measures, was referred to the committee on legislation. The proposition to purchase 2,000 copies of the Xorthwcst was laid on the table. A. C. Houghton, who is about to remove his residence to Faribault, tendered his resignation which was accepted.

A Bunrlar Arrested who Confesses to the l:olil»"ry. Implicating a Policeman as it PaL St. Locts, Dec. 8. — On the night of the Slat of last May, the city ektk*i office of East St. i. alt v.- broken into, a hole punched through the wall of the brick vault and some *?:J'J,UOO in money and $10,000 in city securities abstracted. Every effort was made to find the burglars, but without suc cess. Recently a bind of burglars have op erated here and in different parts of the state, and suspicion fell on their leader, Charles Clark, as being implicate! in tbe East St. Louis robbery. Clark was arrested at Springfield, Mo., Saturday la»t,and brought here, aud hi* confessed to having done the East St. 1.0ui.« Job. He now states Lieut* The*. Duffy, of the East St. Louis police, stood in with him and shared the money, and that individual has been arrested. Ii is also 6tatcd that two or three other city officials were implicated in the affair, and that they wiil be arrested to-day. Clark Vsscrts, how ever, that nobody but he and Duffy were con cerned in the robbery, and that no city scrip was taken from the vault. The affair ba* created a good deal of comment in East St. Louis and steps are aalafj Uken to probe the matter to the bottom. No further arrests were made to-day, and it is now said none will be. There is consid erable talk in East St. Louis, but no city official is directly implicated in the affair, and there does not seem to be any evidence in that direction. It is now positively as serted that no city scrip was taken from the vault by the burglars, and the entire loss by the robbery is placed at a tritle over $3,000. Clark aad Duffy will have a preliminary ex amination this afternoon . Eloped With a Negro. New Youk. Dec. 8. — The third elopement within a week, from within a small radius in Suffolk county, Long Island, took piace yes terday. The wife of Ephraira Arch, a wealthy farmer and an earnest church goer of Swayne, ran away with a negro. Mm, Arch was not a regular church attendant and ob jected to her husband's spending so much time about the church, away from her. When Mr. Arch return ■■■l from services yes terday he (band a card on which his wife hod written that she had heard of •'Dominie Downs wife's elopement and she saw no rea son why she should not elope with the man she loved." Of course. Arch was beside himself with rage and- mortification, and his feelings were not eased when told his wife had gone off with "a nigger." ''It is awful to think that Mary should have eloped with a nigger," he said, "but she will be as happy with him as with a white man. Inevcrwant to see her again." Mrs. Arch leaves three children, aged respectively twelve, nine and seven years. Failure of Opdyke & Co. New Fobs, Dec 8. — The widely known linn of Opdyke A: Co., baut-crs, made an as signment to-day, without preferences. A member of the firm said the failure sur prised even him, owing to its suddenness, and was due to the customers who failed to respond to the call for margins. It is be lieved the assets will ultimately yield nearly, if not quite enough to meet the liabilities. The major portion of the liabilities is secured and about $200,000 are unsecured. The firm was founded sixteen years ago by ex-Mayor George Opdyke, who died in 1880. The firm suffered a loss of $1,000,000 in the panic of 15 73, 1500,000 beta? drawn from it in one run. The present firm was formed in ISSI, with an invested capital of $250,000 and di posits of about f 1,000,000. They state their contracts on the stock exchange will not ex ceed 500 share-, and that neither Individual ly nor as a firm have they speculated to the extent of one share. Tue firm was regarded as a strong concern, and maintained a high grade of credits. After "Some Fun." Cleveland, 0., Dec B.— Saturday night, at New Philadelphia, August Sprin-rei led a party of young men, about 10 o'clock to the house of David Sargent to have some, ? port. In the house at ' this time were Charles Miller, alias Reuben Day, and Ella Moore, said to have been the mistress of Springer whom he left to live with Miller. Springer knocked at the door and was told the people of the bouse were nil abed. ;He continued pounding, when Miller fired two shots through the top of the door to iriAtt-n him away. Springer then burst the do* In and chased Miller into the kitchen, where the latter turned and tired twice more, sending two bullets through Springer's body, produc ing almost instant death. Miller gave him self into custody. Collapse of An Elevator. Chicago, Dec S. — The large grain eleva tor of Armour, Dale & Co., on Sixteenth street, partially collapsed this morning, per mitting 50,000 bushels of wheat to escape, but which was rapidly secured and stored in an adjoining warehouse. The total loss will not exceed $10,000. Mini us: Kates. PiTTSncno, Pa., Dec. B.— The railroad coal trade tribunal met to-day, and after a short cession it was unanimously decided to con tinue the present rate of mining, three cents ; per bushel, at all the mines in this district, I until further notice. The settlement of the ] question without recourse to an umpire gives general satisfaction. So Ahi.Unv City. There is a tribe of about 3,000 Hebrews be tween Damascus and Jerusalem, where they have probably lived since the Christian era. They have neither city nor town, but live in camps. No person of a different race or tribe lias ever been admitted among them. Like the primitive races.they have remained tillers of the soil. They cultivate the ground armed from head to foot, always ready to defend their portion of the earth, from which, with great difficulty, they draw a meagre suste nance. Their ordinary language is Hebrew, but in their intercourse with others they speak Arabic, but they rather avoid than seek strangers, living on little and content to thus live in this sort of native country, which they have occupied for many centuries.

The retail lumber dealers' association of northern Minnesota and Dakota will have a three days' session at Fargo, commencing on December 9. The local dealers are ex pected to entertain them and furnish a ban quet and perhaps a ball. ' One of the busi ness points before them will probably be to protest against wholesale men doing a retail business. The eastern papers contain an Associated Press dispatch from St. Paul reporting a blood curdling affair at Portland, Trail! county, in which one man was killed and another thrown by him into a threshing ma chine just before expiring. The story was rumored in Dakota about a month previous, but there was not a shadow of foundation for it. Most of the Fargo city papers are calling for the suppression of a class of low variety theaters in that city. They arc unusually numerous for a city of the population of Fargo. The better class of them are as well conducted as are vaudeville bouses in the larger cities, and are visited by at out all of the men who patronize any theatrical per formance. Civilization was Inaugurated at Dunscith the pact week by a graud ball, probably the first ever had in the Turtle mountains. Parties came to it from St. John's and Bot tineau, twenty and thirty miles, and forts mountain belles gyrated to the strains of a fiddle and French horn. They were mostly bruuettcs and many of them bad the garbs of white people and were good dancers and attractive. It is not expected that President Cleveland will make any change in the governor's otlice in Dakota for some months after his accccsion, but at the proper time there will be a strong effort of the party in the territory to have Mr. Wilson, the late candidate for congress, selected for the position. lie, ha* all the requisites for the post, and is very popular. The energy with which he made the utterly hopeless canvass is thought to merrit recognition. The members of the Democratic territorial committee are arrauging for a meeting to be held, probably In St. Paul, early in February, to select a deputation of representative Dem ocrats to visit Washington about the 4th of March and assist President Cleveland in In augurating his administration. It is de sired to send only those who are not seeking appointments. Those who are willing to go would do well to send their names to Hon. D M. Kelleher at Jamestown. The Hamlin Times has this weather and game item : Beautiful weather and wild ducks, fine and fat, still bless the clime of Dakota, notwithstanding the fact that the month of December is rapidly coming to a close. Last Friday D. O. Parliament shot eight and a half brace of beautiful ducks. <It seems that the game birds have also learned that it Is unwise to emigrate from Dakota during the months of winter. The most recent suggestion in regard to the state matter is for the legislature to pro vide for. conventions to organize two states in Dakota, fix up all the machinery and have the fall panoply of statehood ready to start off like a locomotive when the lever Is turned at Washington, with senators chosen and ready to start to Washington at once, the special feature to be that the senator for the longest term, both in North and South Da kota, to be a Democrat from away — one always known to be a Democrat, "it is thought this will relieve the objection of the Demo crats in congress. Many Republicans are in favor of the project. One of Many StJiem*: Public opinion' is tending in this direction indicated In the Pierre Signal: We are elastic like a squeezed rubber— we will come up again. We have been "downed" in our efforts of division and admission. The in dications axe not favorable for admission, as it promises a long discussion and a pro tracted argument regarding the feasibility of cutting up Texas, of admitting Utah, Mon tana, Washington territory, and the best manner of handling Dakota, whether to admit as a whole or divide. In view of such facts it is probably best to ask at once for division without admission. This will not be opposed by the factions of Dakota,- and congress would readily grant ns this, well satis fled to rest for the time the vexatious problem. Merely* Drrntn. . One of the papers has evolved the theory .that the Democrats will favor the division of Dakota, because It will furnish additional offices for Democrats to fill. It says: This will make a vacancy without lopping off any old beads among the present territorial of ficials; give the opportunity of appointing a dcv set ; this would give a new judge of the U. S. court, U. S. marshal, collector of in ternal revenue, U. S. attorney, surveyor general, and perhaps a custom bouse officer. Flttmh Collection*.

This part of the territory is the creator in popula tion, wealth and productiveness. It does not wan: the northern millstone hung to its neck. Either section will go well enough alone, but united there would always be bickering and a lack of harmony, which would retard the advancement of bulb.

This Is a little extravagant, but the thor ough organization of the party, with the inspiration and patronage from Washington, will show a wonderful change at the next election. The Mandan i'i-w r ? ays: A local Democrat claims that two-thirds of th- voters of north Dakota are in reality Democrat*. Alex. McKeuzlc was well known to be a Democrat before he came to Bismarck and found that he had to train with the powers that were. Our own mayor of Mandan, it is averred, was a Democrat of the right sort before he struck the west Missouri elope. There is no great harm in a, man changing his opinions, and probably aM of the Da kota Republicans of to-day have changed their views ouce 01 twice. They may change again before Ions:. It i- always well for a passenger by an ocean steamer to stand in with the steward, and for MM men it is wise to stand in with the government. Itnkotn Winter*, The Roscoc M-vjnri is a handsome, enter prising sheet, eight pages and seven columns, representing the six months old town fifteen miles west of Ipswich, the present cud of the Hastings & Dakota branch. It wants this said to eastern people, which may be made to apply to many new districts: Tell them a Dakota winter is not near as severe or unpleasant as those ii: the cast. Tell them there is a vast quantity of government land yet remaining in Edmunds county. Tell them that cereals of all kinds are sure and large crops. Tell them that the finest graz ing lands in the world are to be had about here. Tell them that there is not a more healthy climate on God's green earth than this. Tell them to leave their worn out farms of the cast, where there is nothing but poor crops, disappointments and debts, and come to Edmnuds county. Tell them that hon esty, energy and perseverance are all that a man requires in this country; possessed of these qualifications, success will surely crown bis efforts. Tell them about Koscoe, its rapid growth and development, how from the barren prairie in a few brief months a stir ring, progressive town has sprung up. peo pled with active, intelligent and energetic business men and citizens. Tell them that the railroad is sure to be built to this point, and that Roscoe, from its excellent geograph ical location, will certainly be one of the best business points In central Dakota. Kicked Against th- Prtek*. The La Grace Courier bus this in regard to the difficulty between the editors of the Plankinton Aurora and the Kirov Comedy company, the lady members of which were offended at remarks of the paper: The edi tors refused to retract, whereupon the pcrsou of Mr. Miracle, one of the editors, was kid napped, with the intention of taking him be fore the ladies and compelling him to apolo gize. On the way the sheriff interrupted the party, arrested the kidnappers and released the editor. The next scene WM the justices' court, where the Elroy people were arraigned for committing a riot, and held to bail in the sum of $500. Two hundred of the elite of Plankinton, headed by a brass band, accom panied the offending Thespians to trie depot when they left town, assuring them of the sympathies of the community. The next will be the trial scene. urioum Stonet. In the vicinity of Pierre much interest is taken in evidence of an early and dense population of that country, recently dis covered. In one place stones and boulders have been found arranged in the form of a mammoth turtle; in another a serpent 350 feet lone. Of the latter, the county surveyor says: Different colored stones have been used to designate the nose and eyes, a large white boulder about two feet in size making the former, and pinkish stonc3, about the size of one's fist, the latter. The proportions of the serpent are said to be very perfect, the lines of smaller stones make the outline fol lowing the form of a serpent very closely in all the proportions; the line is well denned and swelling from a narrow point at the neck to the renter, which is about twelve feet wide, then "gradually taperiug oft to a point forming the uil. Wanton Slaughter. One day last week there were 2 14 deer and antelope shipped from a small station in the Bad Lands. ' The Mandan Pioneer deprecates the wanton destruction of this choice game in that section. It says: A young man came from New York a short time ago and in a short hunt in the Bad Lands slaughtered twenty-seven deer. We say slaughtered be cause we cannot conceive of a more appro priate term. In a few years, at this rate of slaughter, we shall have no game. Then anothct cause of the destruction and disap pearance of game is the rapid development of the cattle business. In the rich pasture along the Little Missouri where a few years ago buffalo, antelope and deer roamed un disturbed by the thousands, there are to-day more than 300.000 cattle grazing — less than a year ago there were not over 20,000 cattle in that section. Thus does the denizen of the prairie disappear before the advance of his rival, the beef steer and the rapacious sportsman. Restive Under Civilization. The new judge, who is now holding his first term at Bismarck, is evidently groins: to make his mark. The Valley City Times says of him: "Judge Francis, the new appointee for this judicial district, is a strict adherent to form, and is a regular martinet regarding proper conduct in the court room. The Tribune has noticed this in the Magill trial at Bismarck, the first to bring the new judge into much prominence, and says that the strictest quiet Is enforced and the allies are kept clear, while such a thing as smoking and "back talk" is no longer attempted by the most venturesome. The district seems to have in toe new judge a man with plenty of convic tions and a in.- of more than usual stiff ness." Parties in attendance relate many Inci- nt« of the general character referred to above. i An aecd witness who sat in an aisle was given «-onjc plain talk. The lawyers in cline to the view of judicial crankiness, and are not quite pleased at the want of reverence for technicalities. They claim that ruling* are made that will allow setting a.-rldc of conclusions in important trial*. Personally the judge is well liked, but he, perhaps, doesn't remember the distance to Boston. lie brings the attorneys to time and don't propose to have any foolishness. FAILURE AT RACINE. The J.
