A Glimpse at the Applicants for Pres- idential l*o_to__.ce_ in tlio Territory. Special to the Globe. Washington, Nov. 12.— And now comes Dakota with her list of ripe, pluck able plums. Her land offices are the best and most remunerative of all. There is not a register or receivership which pays less than S3.000 per year. In other states and territories the offices pay but little more than the regular salary of $500 per annum. Dakota is rich officially as she is cereally. As yet there are eight office- worth hav.ng which the president has allowed to remain unfilled thus long. The office of register at Deadwood will have to be filled next month. The office of receiver at Fargo will be rilled next March. All of the others will run into 1SSS and 1SS9, unless the executive has time or takes time to put in Democrats sooner. Those which are still held by Re publicans are: Term expires. Salary Mitchell.

Those are plums worth p eking. It is a pleasure to note the fact that Dakotians have not been blind to the fact that this £•..•_, 000 is running into Republican pockets all the time. They have been active and earnest in their eudeavor to get the offices, and their numbers are respectable enough. Here is the list: Mitchell— Registership.Oscar E.Rea,Samuel C. Sbelton, John C.

Curran. sing.sek is solid. There is one office in the above list which cannot be captured. They who are wise will hearken unto the words of wisdom. aud cease to work and hope lor it. The receivership of the office at Mitchell is held by Hon. Theodore. F. Sinsiser. He was appointed by President Arthur, and con firmed just before that official retired to the private life whence be unexpectedly emerged. Mr. Singiser was the Republican delegate in congtess from Idaho territory. He had formerly been secretary ot Idaho. Prior to that he was a clerk in the treasury department. He was appointed in this way. He "had more friends on the Demo cratic side of the house, when he was a member, than on the Republ.can side. His best chums were Blackburn, of Kentucky; Randall, of Pennsylvania; Hewitt, of New York, and other prominent Democrats of like standing. He was always with them, and they with him. Well, when 'he ad ministration changed, these gentlemen ad vised him to take a land office, and prom ised to stand by him. He did so. They will do anything and every thins for him. Blackburn and Randall would walk to Washington for "Sing"' anytime. He can- not be moved or removed. Indeed, Sin- giser is a Democrat at heart, and has been a Republican hitherto "lor revenue only." Of course, those who are after that office will keep on butting their heads AGAINST A STONE WALL rather than listen to the words of wisdom. But the same amount of energy and influ- ence might be better expended to the seek- ing of some other and more available office. Another office on which various applicants are wasting time is the Grand Forks regis- tership. It is almost certain that the sec- retary of the interior has promised that office" to R. 11. Brown, of Huron, whose name you will find on the list of applicants. Mr. Brown was an applicant for the Aber- deen registership, and it was given to Maj. L. A. Burke. But for Buike's superior claims, by reason of soldier record of excep- tional merit, Brown would have then been appointed. It is almost a certainty that he will receive the Grand Forks office. At Bismarck it is pretty well settled that E. R. Otis will be the lucky man. The de- partment officials know aim to be an excel- lent man with a splend d record. He is also known to be the only able Democratic editor in Burleigh county, and one of the best and most capable Democratic workers in North Dakota. Since Lounsberry left Bismarck Otis has been the sole intellectual light of the Bismarck Journal, a very cred- itable Democratic weekly. Maj. Otis lias the indorsement of Mr. Day. Cap.. Mc- Cormack. Marshal Maratta and the other good men and true whose recommendations count with the administration. The Banner District. Iu the Pembina (Dak.) assembly district. composed of rive counties, the Democrats cast 135 votes two years ago. This year they cast about 2,500 votes, and come out with a Democratic majority of 1,100. Large credit for this magnirieent result is due to J. G. Webb. Esq., chairman of the Pembina county committee and a member of the Democratic territorial committee, and to J. H. McGuire. Esq., for untiring work and effective speaking. The latter gentleman was elected district attorney. This is probably the best work done in the terri- tory, and crowns the Pembina district as the banner district so far as Democratic gains are concerned. THESE WANT • OMOFFICES.

PAUL, SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 13, 1886 CASS COUNTY'S CROSS. , Why Certain Democrats of largo Quietly Knifed Candidate Day at ' the Polls, : And Are Now Asserting That His Influ- ence at Washington Will be at Best But Small. Dakota's Next Legislature — The - Democrats Make Gains in Both Branches. , ! ■ A Most Remarkable Revolution in < Political Sentiment Reported in lie 1-emblua District. i Special to the Globe. Fargo, Nov. 12.— The Sun, of this city, which claims to be Democratic, and the only paper of that politics in North Da kota, takes exception to the statement in the Globe that Mr. Day, as the candidate of the patty for delegate, and in view of ; the remarkable vote he received, will be accepted at Washington by the administra tion and the Democratic leaders as the ac credited exponent of the party in Dakota — and it is tin willing to concede him any considerable share in the work that effected the splendid result and came so near over turning the Republican majority of two years ago of 56.000. The Sun finds it necessary to disparage Mr. Day and his candidacy in order to justify its course and that of those it represents, in refusing to support and vote for him. by which course Mr. Day lost several hundred votes in Cass county, and the party is placed in an awk ward position as regards the national or ganization. In view of the fact that the editor of the Sun was a member of a dele gation that went to Aberdeen claiming to represent the only simon pure, '"blown in the bottle" Democracy of Cass county, and were denied seats, presumably, in the inter est of Mr. Day. allowance should be made. if even a proveroial amiability and religious devotion to the party did not avert a TINGE OF ACERBITY and reluctance to genuflect gracefully to the inevitable. It is not surprising that the Sun and its co-workers felt chagrined aud aggrieved when so summarily and, as it seemed to others, almost wantonly re fused admission at Aberdeen, but the cir cumstances would not seem to warrant the supposition that Mr. Day had any personal interest in the matter. He did not go to Aberdeen as a candidate for the nomina tion for delegate. He was an ardent sup porter of McCormack. and only consented to become a candidate after all efforts had failed to induce Capt. McCormack to ac cept the position. Why should he have had any concern as to the disposition of contesting delegations? The Sun and it friends came home in ill-humor, very natur ally fretted by the jeering exultation of the admitted delegation, and attributing their discomfiture largely to Mr. Day. hastily took ground against the nominee of the convention. The canvass was too short for their embitteruient to fully subside be fore the election, and they allowed the ballot box to make a record of their griev ance. It leaves the party in Cass county in a somewhat critical condition. There are nominally two organizations, but it is a good time for the statute of limitations and a new beginning. The man whose inter ests were the real cause of the split has been permanently quieted by the emphatic voice of the people. He will have no fur ther use for a Democratic contingent, and there is no good reason why all the ele ments of the party should not come to gether just as they do in the other states after they have had A FAMILY RUMPUS, forgetting the past and pulling together for the common cause. With harmony and proper effort Mr. Yon _.ekla, or some other solid Democrat, can be elected mayor • Fargo next spring, and a good start made t ward control of the county. It is useless to deny or tenure the fact that Mr. Day will, in view of his emphatic indorsement by the party at the election, wield greatly en hanced influence at Washington in all mat ters pertaining to especially in the dispensing of patronage by the administra tion. ■ It is believed he will labor unself ishly lor the good of the territory and the Democratic party. He will seek to pro mote the harmony and efficiency of the party in every locality, and it is to be hoped that all Democrats in Cass county will rec ognize the situation and look to the future with their backs to the past. Statehood is looming up in the early future, and they, as the Democracy of the most populous county in Dakota, want to be in position to make their influence felt. They will have a life- Ion. Democrat in the chief county office for the next two years, and have another in the higher branch of the legislature. They may make the election of such the rule by a timely welding of all the elements and se curing a united party. DAKOTA'S -Mi XT I.KG IS L.TIRE.

To the Editor of the Globe: The action of the Democratic territorial convention held recently at Aberdeen has been given so many constructions by the divisionists and those in their employ, and some of the Republican papers having urged that the Democratic nominee was just as acceptable to them as Judge Gif ford. the Republican nominee, the anti division, or union Democrats, represented by the late territorial committee in their action at Mitchell, have decided to organize the "Cleveland Central Union club," with auxiliary clubs in each county of the ter ritory, to include all who are opposed to dismemberment of the territory, and who are in favor of its early admission as a whole. The executive committee, consist ing of one from each judicial district, with a chairman and secretary at large, is now being selected, and the platform, constitu tion and by-laws will be formally adopted at an early meeting of the executive' com mittee, and will be given fo the public through the press. Nearly all of the lead ing admission Democrats of the territory are now interested in the organization of this club, and numbers among mem bers its leading and prominent business men of the territory. The executive committee, the members of which are being selected, will complete the organization of the central club for the territory and organize the auxiliary county clubs, and will endeavor at as early a date as possible to organize in all the county seat towns of the territory, with a view to having a full and fair discussion of this important question, and many of the ablest speakers of the territory, as well as others from the outside who are earnestly inter ested in this work, will be engaged by the executive committee to address the public and enlarge the membership of this club. The organization of this club is in no way. nor should it be in any wise considered, as a usurpiug power to the present territorial Democratic central committee, as it will earnestly work and co-operate with the present party committee, and in all things work hand in hand with them to the best Interests of the party, the principal purpose of the Cleveland club being to advocate and secure the admission of Dakota territory as a whole, and to prevent the adopiiou by congress of the revolutionary schemes of Campbell, Moody & Co., in the present or any other session of congress, and to pre sent to the people and our legislative bodies the facts aud reasons why our terri tory should be admitted into the "Union of States" at an early day and without any dismemberment. Yours truly, Wm. II. Becker, Sec'y Cleveland Central Union Club. Fargo, Dak., Nov. 12. Pierce Not to Be Disturbed. Special to the Globe. Yankton, Dak., Nov. 12.— In the Globe of the 6th inst. the Washington correspondent intimated that Hon. F. M. Ziebach, of this city, would probably sue ceed Gov. Pierce in a very short time. If the honors did not fall to Mr. Ziebach M. H. Day would be the lucky man. Both these gentlemen are in Yankton. Mr. Ziebach frankly stated that he did not think Gov. Pierce would be disturbed till after the adjourn ment of the next Dakota legislature. Mr. Ziebach said a new governor would have a great deal to do if appointed now, and that very little could be accom plished in the way of changes till after the meeting of the legis lature. He says that while there may be grounds for anticipating the appointment of Mr. Pierce's suc cessor, he is in ignorance of any movement in this direction. Mr. Day says it is quite likely a new governor may soon be ap pointed, but he has received no intelligence that this will be done. WILL €111 Kill GET IT? Speculation Regarding? the Probable Successor oi' Gov. Pierce. Special to the Globe. Huron, Dak., Nov. 11. — There seems to be a growing conviction among the Demo crats of this locality that Gov. Pierce's suc cessor will be either F. M. Ziebach or Judge L. K. Church, with the chances con siderably in favor of the latter gentleman. So far as ability is concerned, either of them is competent to fill the posi tion as governor of Dakota, and either would be quite acceptable to Dakota Democrats. There is no doubt but that Hon. M. II. Day has been offered the commission and declined to accept. It is. however, for Mr. Day to say who shall be appointed, and the friends of Judge Church ate urging his name with great earnestness and are more confident now than a few weeks since that he will re ceive the appointment. His recent visit to New York strengthens the belief that his friends there are working in his behalf, and that be has also the indorse ment of certain Illinois congressmen, who heretofore declined to give their influence to other than a man from their own state. So sure are some of Judge Church's friends of his appointment, that already guesses and speculation as to who will succeed to the judgeship are indulged in. "At the most, but a short time will elapse before Dakota will have a Democratic governor," remarked a prominent Democrat to your correspondent last evening, "and he will be a man in every way ' qualified and compe tent for the place, and he will please the people of both political parties, too."

TERRITOKI TIDBITS. News Notes of Intere-t to the People of Dakota. Joseph Buckley, of Poynette. Wis., is In Dakota in search of a wayward nephew named Giesen. The somewhat romantic story Is that about seven years ago young Giesen was a clerk In a store at Milwaukee, doing well and the support of a widowed mother. Losing his position, be took for a time the post of a coachman for a wealthy and aristocratic family. A beautiful daughter of the proud merchant became Infatuated with him. and finding it hopeless to obtain the parental consent, she fled with her lover, who had been discharged. The father made no effort to find her, but took a solemn oath that she should never again enter his house. The eloping couple were married in the morning in a neighboring city, and immedi ately after the husband told his wife that he must go to Milwaukee to get some of his effects, but would return on the even ing train and they would go West to build them a home. The heartless fellow left his beautiful, loving bride a few hours after the wedding cere mony, and since then she has not heard a word from bint. She waited till hope was exhausted, then returned to Milwaukee, but her family .hut the old home door in her face and she has since made her own living, at present holding a good position in the la dies' department of one of the finest establishments in Chicago. The poor and sorrowful mother has tried for five years to find trace of her shameless son. Her brother has come to Dakota to follow a reported trail. There is not even a rational conjec ture as to the cause of his cold-blooded and heartless course in taking the charming girl from her luxurious home and immediately deserting her so cruelly. The faithful maiden wife still loves him, and has not sought a divoree. . . The Milwaukee railroad, in pushing west in Dickey county, found it convenient to leave the bright little village of Keystone, with its church, printing house, saloons and other evidences of advanced civilization, a few miles to one side, and establish a new town, which has been named Monanyo. It donated to all the business men of Keystone lots if they would come to the new town. Consequently the past few weeks there has been seeu the novel sight of a town on wheels moving over the prairie to the new site. The newspaper and saioonsled the van and the others are follow ing, A bank, commodious hotel and several business houses are already in operation in the. new town, and it promises to have a rapid but healthy growth, as it will be the mart for a scope of well settled farming country. The past week the dispatches have an nounced the death of Rev W. H. Hoadley at Huron, a man widely known and of especial note in the temperance work. He had been quite feeble for some time, and a few even ings before his death his friends surprised him by filling his house to present him a gold headed cane. Elder E. T. Cresser, the re formed politician and editor.made the present ation speech, which was marked with pathos and feeling allusions to the failing health of the venerable recipient. The latter re sponded In a manner that brought tears to the eyes of his hearers. He said that his life's work was done, and before another summer's sun he expected to be beyond the need of their beautiful present. He spoke to his old soldier friends present in a very affecting manner— and he now sleeps in a soldier's grave. John Anderson— not "My Jo" and his wife, a buxom young lady, worked during the season for Farmer Charley Beers, in Nelson county, who was a leading church member. Anderson was sent to town very often and had to remain away over night. Coming home unexpectedly one time, be discovered signs of too great frequency between Beers and his wife, but they were shocked at his susptcione. Last week on coming home he found Beers and his wife ha. gone. Beers bad sold all his property, most of which was mortgaged, left many bills unpaid and even left Anderson in the lurch for the entire sea son's work. Anderson thinks the latter is meaner than stealing his wife. Two years ago Custer county lacked but one vote of giving the Democratic candidate for delegate as many votes as Gifiord, and was the neatest Democratic of any county in the territory. This year, for some reason, it has gone strongly Republican on the general ticket, although electing some Democrats to the county offices. Some of Sparks' rulings were specially disliked in that section, and he was saddled on the Democratic ticket by the Republicans. The five Black Hills coun ties should give a thousand Democratic ma- , jority instead of as many Republican. It was a rough joke played on Hon. M. H. Dunnell and th other property owners of the town of New Rockford, in so quietly voting away from it the county seat of Eddy, while Dunnell was looking after Minnesota politics, and none suspecting the danger. They did r ot dream that the people would vote it to a townsite distant from a railroad, but they did. To a place like New Rockford the loss of the county seat is a serious matter, and will prove very damaging. La Moure county promises to have a pro tracted legal contest over the removal of the county seat. It has been at Grand Rapids, but at the late election the town of La Moure secured about 100 majority. The Grand Rapids people at once employed Fareo attorne and took steps to secure an in junction against the removal. They claim that La Moure imported 150 voters from other counties. The fight is, as usual in such cases, very bitter. As an incident connected with the narra tive of the Milwaukee girl who eloped with her father's coachman and was herself de serted as soon as the ceremony was over, it may be mentioned that the uncle, Buckler, who came to Dakota to follow a supposed trail of the absconding husband the past week, fell down a stairway and died in conse quence. He had not succeeded in finding the man Giesen who deserted bis wife. While Chris Christianson, a farmer near Toronto in Deuel county, was driving home from town lately, a big eagle nine feet from tip to tip alighted on his shoulder and at tempted to get away with him. but made a sorry blunder for him. Chris managed to get the lines about the bird, and captured him alive. He will sell him to swell the fund he is raising to bring his family over from Norway. This seems to be the season of the year I when men secure traveling outfits by selling mortgaged property. Peter Hailand, in Nel son county, is one of this class for whom officers are looking. He sold a lot of mort gaged stock to several different parties, even victimizing his own mother, and he is no more to be found in Dakota. His address is believed to be in Canada. The great issue in Ransom county and that legislative district was between the Butte and Oliver factions. Maj. Buttz wa3 candi date for attorney and Col. Oliver for the leg islature. Each succeeded in beating the other, and are moderately happy over the re sult. They split the Republican party in Ransom and have two sets of committees so that the fight will probably go on. Dakota's funny man, Fred Carruth, formerly of the Escelline Bell, has been for some weeks on a hunting expedition in the Black Hills, riding on a genuine broncho, with a complete cowboy's paraphenalia from sombrero to spurs. H. will return East soon with material for a new series of humorous articles. It is supposed he will resume news- paper work. ___E___j An irregular Salvation band of eight or ten men and women have established headquar- ters at Jamestown, which they seem to regard as peculiarly under the control of adverse powers. After reclaiming that place, they will branch out to Bismarck, Valle*/ City, Fargo and other places, where reformatory work is specially needed. A sensible Republican paper says that. while It is not pleasant medicine for them to see their immense majorities swept away, it will be a good thing for the people, as it will force boih parties to put up their best men and do away with much of the bos. im and ring business. The professional politicians will find their avocation less fruitful to them. The Sun, the mo .-ratio organ. _s it claims, at Fargo, explains the absurdly small vo e for Day in Cass county by the statement that after tho rejection of its (Benton) delegation to Aberdeen through the influence (alleged) of Mr. Day, it was necessary either to abandon the organization or throw over Mi*. Day, and the latter course was adopted. In one of the central counties it is reporte.- that two preachers became so interested i.i tie success or defeat of a certain county candi date that, while they wouldn't bet, of course* they agreed that the loser should fill the pul- pit a certain number of times for the other without exchange. It is expected the loser , will preach upon the demoralization of pol.t cs. ; Tne vote at Sioux Falls would seem to' indi- cate that it is moving to the front of ■ Dakota | cities. It polled 1,305 votes— increase of 192 in two years. l_*_go, the only larger town. . voted 1.561. slightly less than two years ago, but some, it is claimed, were unable to vote for lack of polling places, as there were but two. This was the first year that the Democratic party has ever had an existence in Grant county, and that at the first effort it should secure a majority is a surprising and most encouraging fact for Democrats. The whole . vote was 1,880. The Democrats there can now afford to have representation baaed upon party votes. Minnehaha county was the only gone that voted on the division question, and Sioux Falls, the city where the constitutional con vention was held, gave a majority against di vision. This is a significant fact, and gives some explanation of why the Republican convention did not want the matter, left to popular vote. In Buffalo county, the county seat fight re sulted in the removal of the seat of local government from Gunn Valley to Buffalo Centre. The Sentinel newspaper will follow. This county is partly on reservations aud went strongly Republican on accout of dis satisfaction with the movements at Wash ington. P. B. Deerlay was the first man that ever held federal office in Faulk county, being ap pointed postmaster at Faulktoa in 1888. He has acquired estate enough to enable him to goto Des Moines, la., and induce Miss Ella A. Hamilton to chango her name aud become a Dakota wife. It Is learned that it Is designed the coming winter to form two bishoprics of Dakota — the field is too large for Bishop Marty. Efforts are being made to secure the episcopal see for the South at Aberdeen and the North at Fargo. There is no Catholic journal in Da kota and it is proposed to establish one. The complete round-up -shows only two men re-elected in the lower branch of the legislature in the North, and none to the council. The two are Williams, of Bismarck, and the honest old Scotch farmer from Walsh, Stewart. This shows marked dis satisfaction with the last legislature. A hunting party in Richland county, one member of which was from St. Paul, missed their way after dar_ and drove into a small lake, drowning both horses. The men waded out, and wet and disgusted, crawled into a hay stack, and spent the night. It was the longest night they ever knew. In the light of the election returns It is seen that at least, so far as securing popular votes is concerned, the Democrats made a mistake in not explicitly declaring for ad mission as one state. This would have swept the north and central region, and caused but small loss In any section. One ni:-b.; last week three high-toned young ladies in Fargo had the curiosity to see where their gentlemen friends spent their evenings, and. disguised in men's rig, started on the rounds, but were soon recog nized and fled to their homes, wiser but not happier for their lark. The Sioux Falls Press has the curious theory that, as a Democratic congress did not admit Dakota, the people of the territory did not like it. and so voted the Democratic ticket. It would be a better statement that they voted strongly in harmony with the party in power to promote statehood. Col. Richardson, of the Valley City Times, who would not exaggerate even a fish story. vouches lor one of his friends last week hav ing killed eight geese aud wounded five oth ers at a single shot. As they wore wild geese this indicates good hunting in that region. Contributions are being- taken in the neigh boring counties for destitute people in a portion of Dickey county, where the drouth prevented their raising anything. The num ber of the entirely destitute is not very large, but they must have aid to get thiough the winter. In Traill county the Prohibitionists carried the commissioners, giving them control of the county board, so that no licenses can be had In that county to sell liquor. Col. Plummer says he can stand it as long as there is no embargo on the brown jug. The vein of coal being opened near Dickin son in Stark county is said to be twenty feet thick, and is claimed to be superior to any of the other iiguite. It is soon to be placed on the market and afford a cheap fuel for that region. Toe depot tne Northwestern railroad has built at Oakes, the new town at the junction with the Northern Pacific, is said to be the largest that road has built In the territory, showing that a large -business is expected there. Marshal Maratta recently visited the Hot Springs, in Fall River county, and is quite enthusiastic over them. He thinks there is no doubt as to their sanitary value and that they will become famous as a resort in time. A couple a good deal under age lately tried to get married at Vermillion without speak- ing to the old folks, but they were overtaken at the matrimonial door, taken to their homes, spanked and put in their little beds. _• Judging by the Tote at the recent election, Deadwood is losing its standing as the largest city in the Black hills. The vote of the three most populous towns Is given as: Rapid City, 1.0+5; Lead City, 700; Deadwood, 656. As the Republican*, have a two-thirds ana mpre majority of the legislature elected upon the platform of stringent temperance legisla- lion, there will be a good deal of interest to see how they will redeem their pledges. Judge Bascom came out from Washington as one of the first settlers of Ransom county, and. having made a snug fortune, now re turns to the federal capital, where ho will work in the interest of Dakota. According to the local paper at Volga, In Brookings county, before the election the Democrats could find but twenty votes for tbem, but they polled fifty-nine— only thirty less than the Republicans. In Grand Forks countr the Democrats in creased their vote to 1,378 from 5.1 two years ago, while the Republican vete foil from 2, .82 to 2,076. One more pull ought to give the county to the Democrats. The voters of Barnes county had the gal lantry to give Miss Belle Sampson, an excellent youni* lady, the most votes for superintend ent of schools at the late election. Sho had three male opponents. The personal popularity of Mr. Day is shown in the vote of his home. Bon Homme. That county gave him 112 majority, while giving several hundred for most of the Re publican ticket. Steele county voted strongly Republican and for license. It tried prohibition last year and the towns thought they lost trade from thirsty people who went to neighboring counties. Several farmers in Sanborn county have secured wells at a depth of eighty to eighty six feet that flow a barrel or more a minute, which is quite a little, bonanza for stock farms." Nearly every member of the legislature elect is either a farmer or pledged to sustain their interests. It is probable that more radical measures will be enacted than hereto- fore. Immigration Commissioner Dunlap has moved his office to Bismarck very reluctantly at the order of the governor, and promised the Huron people to return there after the legislature adjourns. ' In spite of the scarcity of females there the divorce lawyers in the Black H1113 have a boom in their line. Probably many of. the parties have come to Dakota for divorces. . Tinan, the editor of the Kimball . Graphc, has been married a few months, and now (in his paper bewails the high price of baby bug gies as "a blow at infant industries." The Saturday Dakota Globe is growing in popularity. The Fargo circulator states that in that locality nearly 25 per cent, more are sold than on other days. One party in Clay county last week shipped six carload- of potatoes to St. Louis. This is one of the products of Dakota that can hardly be excelled. Auditor Caldwell, who is supposed to have the confidence of Gov. Pierce, ridicules the idea that VI r. Day has any chance to be ap- pointed governor. Lincoln, Judge Gilford's county, voted ag-iust license quite largely at the late elec- tion. A hot canvass was made by the tem- perance people. ';;'. '. Grant county gave Wilson for delegate two years ago just four votes and now gives Day a majority. This shows what can be don* by effort. Rapid City more than doubles its vote of two rears — 1,015 to 510— and claims to be the most populous city in the Black Hills. Ants Which Fight to a Finish. The jolliest sport among the Renoites is: fighting ants, says the Reno Gazette. They : scrape up a shovelful of these busy, insects from one colony and carry, them to the next nearest colony, dumping them -together. The result is immediately a pitched battle. which is fought most viciously, the little * warriors , literally tearing each other to pieces, until the last of the interlopers is dead. They fight in pairs or in threes,. fours and bunches,' as it happens to come handiest, but it is always a "fight to the finish" and no Quarter asked or shown. ■ I NO. 3 1 7 A TWO TEARS' TRANCE. The Strange Case of Maggie Beadling, a Seventeen-Year-Old Pennsyl- • vania Girl. She Has Only Three Lucid Intervals in a Period of Twenty-Six Months. Ansellc Forms Surroundins Her Bed Anaelic Forms Surrounding Her Bed --In Communication Willi the Spirit World. She Sings. While Her Face is Illum- ined With Inexpressible Joy and Pleasure. The most remarkable case of catalepsy, or trance, ever known in Western Penn sylvania, perhaps, says a Pittsburg corre spondent of the Globe-Democrat, is that of Miss Maggie Beadling, a seventeen-year-old girl living at Banksville, a si_f_.ll mining town about four miles from this city. For over two years she has bean in what seems to be a trance. During this time she has had but three lucid intervals, one on last Saturday, lasting for less than a minute, only long enough to say "Please give me a drink." The other two periods were during the early part of her strange sickness." The first one lasted for about two weeks, but the second only a few hours. Over half the time she has passed in a sleep or stupor, from which nothing could arouse her. Her father is a miner, about 45 years of age, and the father of six children, Maggie being next to the oldest. Both parents are hearty and robust, and the children have all been, and are to-day, re markably healthy, and are perfectly free from any sign, of the malady which affects the daughter Maggie. She was born Oct. 15, 1..9, and, when 5 years old, she had a | very bad attack of scarlet fever, combined ' with dropsy, and her parents think the lat- ' ter disease was never eradicated from her system. But this did not seem to impair her health, and she grew up a strong, Healthy, active girl. About 5 o'clock in the evening of Aug. 12, Is. 4. she fell DOWN A FLIGHT OF STAIRS at her home, and injured her spine so se verely as to permanently destroy the use of her limbs. Her head was not bruised or hurt in any way, but about four hours after the accident she was seized with a terrible pain in the back of the head, and after suffering intensely for about an hour went into convulsions. Gradually her body grew rigid, her breathing became slower and slower, and finally seemed to cease altogether. The beatings of the heart and pulse were so faint they could barely be detected. She continued in this state for six hours, when her limbs began to relax, her breathing be came perceptible and her eves opened, but, to the surprise of her relatives and attend ing physician, she did not regain con sciousness. Her eyes did not have a dull, vacant look, but seemed fixed on something far above her nearly all the time. She would lie in bed and lift up one arm to its full length, while a strange smile illu mined her features. About four weeks after the first attack she surprised those who were sitting around the bed by mur muring the name of a little daughter of Superintendent George Alcorn, of the Saw mill Run railway, who dad died about two weeks before she had met with the acci dent. She did not speak again, but by the MOTIONS OF Ell ARMS indicated that she saw an angel hovering over her. Her mother, bending over her, asked her if she saw any others there. She seemed to hear and understand the question and answered it by a strange smile. Mrs. Beadling then repeated the names of a number of relatives and friends who had died, and at the utterance of each name the same sweet smile.. was an affirmative an swer. To test her further, Mrs. Beadling repeated the names of her children and residents of the little town whom she bad known, who were still living, asking her if site could see any of them. She made no sign at the mention of any of these names, her features remaining perfectly impassive. Then the mother spoke the name of an aunt who had died about seven years ago, and the daughter's eyes sparkled and her features indicated as plainly as words could do that she saw her. One day about six weeks after she took to Lher bed she again spoke, saying: "Mamma, please hold my hands. I can't count anymore." "C.d'i count what, dear?" asked Mrs. BcadliQir. "Angels," was the response. She had formed the habit of extending the fingers of her hands and touching them together successively for hour.-, at a time. The only time when her fingers were not thus employed was when she was singing the songs she had learned in church and Sunday school. For hours she would sing in clear, jet .OFT, SWEET TONES all the religious songs she had ever known. Frequently the attendants tried to stop her, fearing exhaustive effects, but she would only cease for a few minutes and then commence again. All this time she seemed totally oblivious to everything around her. Old school friends would come in and talk to her, but she did not hear them. No matter how many people were in the room or how loud they talked she never noticed them, although she would smooth the counterpane and adjust her pillow. Her eyes would be wide open, but almost invariably they would be turned toward the ceiling. Sometimes when she would raise her arm and beckon to those above her, it seemed that they passed from her sight, and as her arm slowly dropped to her side, her face would assume a look of most sorrowful disappoint ment. In this condition Maggie Beadling ha, remaimed for twenty-six months, and is to day. She sings a great deal more now than during her early illness, Sometimes she seems in transports of ecstacy, and a look ot joy and pleasure that cannot be portrayed words illumines her face. At "such times she sings. Her favorite songs, or those she sings most frequently are: "I've Been Washed in the Blood of the Lamb," "Bright Angels Are Hovering Near," and one. of which the first line is: Some build their homes on the ever-drifting sands. Another song she sings frequently, and in such an unutterably sad and sweet voice that it always brings tears to the eyes of those who hear it every time she sings. It is: I have no re»ti_jr-pia.e o □ earth On which to fix my love. Bui oh! my heart is yearning: For the promised rest above. _ A VERY REMARKABLE FEATURE is that, instead of the tune to which she learned the words, she sings airs which have never been heard before. The rhythm arid harmony are perfectly and wonder fully sweet and beautiful. Her mother and all her relatives firmly believe they are the songs of angels, which she has heard and learned by hearing them singing. Mar garet Beadling possesses a face which might serve for a Madonna. Her hair is a light golden color and very long. Her com plexion is very fair with a small red spot in each cheek, and her features are perfect. Her forehead is very broad and high, but in perfect tour. Her eyes are of a deep, clear blue color, and very large and expres sive, with long and heavy eyelashes and eyebrows. One of the most wonderful features of her strange case is that she now weighs about one hundred and twenty five pounds, only five pounds less than when she was hurt over two years ago. In all thai time she has tasted nothing but milk toast and chicken broth, never over four ounces a day. and has even gone for throe days at a time without a morsel of food. Dr. Graham, now of the Ea.t End. but for merly of .Tenaperanceville, has had charge of the case from the beginning. .He say* it is the most remarkable trance or case of catalepsy he ever experienced. U.% does not think the girl will ever recover.
