Resume of the South Dakota
Outlook From Different
Points.
Special to the Globe.
Yank S. 1)., Doc. 31.-On Jan. 0
She' second legislative assembly of the
state of South Dakota will assemble at
•lie capital. Tins will be an event of
national importance, inasmuch as it
will determine whether a Republican
or Democratic senator shall represent
the state in congress. On the result of
this election Hinges the future political
jomplexion of the state. The combined
forces of the Democratic and Independ
ent parties outnumber the Republican
votes by seven, on joint ballot, with
half a dozen contests to be settled. The
Independents and Democrats propose
to stand together to effect the organiza
tion of the legislature. This would
place them in a position to strengthen
their forces by seating the contesting
members, who arc all Independents,
thereby giying the opposition a
majority of about thirteen votes on
joint ballot. The only question to de
termine is which of the two par
ies—Democrats and Independents
will support the other when it
comes to uniting on a candidate to
oppose Moody, the Republican candi
date. From surface indications it is
probable that the greater part of the
session will be devoted to the election j
of a United States senator. The princi
pal candidates are: G. C. Moody, J. A.
Pickler and A. B. Melville, Republican;
Hugh J. Campbell, A. Wardall and J.
W. Harden, Independent, and Bartlett
Tripp, Democrat.
.Besides the election of a United States
senator the legislature will be called
upon to adopt the Australian system of
ballot, or some system of secret ballot of
similar nature. StiO ig appeals for the
resubmission of the prohibitory liquor
amendment are being prepared for their
consideration. An effort will also be
made to reduce the legislative represen
miion.
BEFORE THE BATTLE.
The Senatorial Battle Promises a
Sensation.
Special to the Globe.
Wateiitowx, S. D., Dec. 31.— The
coining session of the .South Dakota leg
islature at Pierre promises to outrival
any of its predecessors in point of inter
est. Jt is so badly split up that it is sate
to predict some lively skirmishes, and
there will undoubtedly be an attraction
at the capital for every day of the ses
sion. The senatorial contest coming in
first, and which will probably be the
hottest fought political battle, is yet in
doubt, and to a casual observer it now
looks like anybody's plum, except, per
haps, that Moody is not in it. Ana there
is no dead certainty that any Repub
lican will be elected, either. The Dem
ocrats and Independents have the mat
ter entirely in their own hands, and if
they work harmoniously and prudently,
as your correspondent has reason to be
lieve they will, no Republican need
apply.
Bartlelt Tripp
is undoubtedly the leading candidate
for the honor now, and he will get a
splendid support from the Codington
county representatives. His eminent
qualifications for the position are tell
ing in his favor 011 every hand, and his
decided stand on the lariir issue lias
won for him the hearts of many who
were once classified as Republicans. Of
course, it cannot bo said who will be
successful, but an unbiased opinion
from a careful observation would be
that Tiipp is the man.
Col. M. W. Sheale. senator-elect from
Codington county, is one who will be
beard from within the legislative halls
this winter, lie has already prepared a
large number of important, bills, and as
soon as the chaplain has concluded his
part of the exercises "the gentleman
from Codington" will be ready for bus
iness and lose no time in putting forth
his efforts and talent for the reform leg
islation needed and demanded by our
farmers and business men.
Col. Slienfe
is a shrewd business man of acknowl
edged ability, a low tariff advocate and
a consistent Democrat, lie will support
BAitlett Tripp for the United .Slates sen
ate. Hon. C. X. Seward, the present
mayor of Watertown, will be an active
member of the lower house. Mr. Sew
ard is a lawyer of marked abil
ity, a keen business man and a
careful observer. He, too, is prepar
ing a number of measures that
should become laws at this session, and
he will use every effort to serve his con
stituents faithfully. The other mem
bers— Democrat, and Mclntyre,
Republican—will also do some good
work. The Codinglou county members
will favor Rev. 1". E. llolp, pastor of the
Congregational church oi this city, for
chaplain of the senate. It would be
impossible to select a more fitting per
son for the position. He is, without
doubt, the most popular clergyman in
the whole state. His scholarly attain
ments, cultured manner and Christian
zeal are the comment of his large circle
of acquaintances and warm friends.
The ■•
Tariff* llelorm Club,
which was organized in this city over a
year ago, has done much good in awak
ening the people to a realization of the
greatness of the tariff issue, and, al
though ii is a strictly non-partisan or
ganization, with many Republican mem
bers, it has been a means ot educating
many who had previously given the sub
ject little or no thought. Literature has
been distributed among readers, debates
held and papers read at all meetings,
and, though the organization has been
scoffed at by the local Republican ring
rulers, its good effect has been proven!
If the legislature of South Dakota this
winter will send lion. Bartlett Tripp to
the United States senate, adopt the
Australian ballot system, put a tax on
real estate mortgages and pass many
other measures demanded by the farm
ers of the state, it would not be surpris
ing to see South Dakota in the Demo
cratic column at the election in "J2.

tteportorial Review of the Last
Day oi" tlie Year in the Prison
City.
The Daily Call, published by J. S.
Vandiver, suspended publication last
-cveninp for an indefinite period. The
paper lias not met with the desired
patronage since ii.s lirst issue was pub
lished last fall, and the paper will be
discontinued until circumstances will
warrant its re-establishment. Publica
tion of the Sunday Call and the Weekly

will be continued. M. L. Barker, who
has for sonic time superintended the
mechanical affairs of the oih'oe, has pur
chased a half Interest in the concern,
and will hereafter act as business man

An indication of the firmnes9 of the
lumber and Log market is the fact that
several clown-river purchasers ha*«
been in the city during the past few
days, and a number of log sales are re
ported. The Cable Lumber company,
of Davenport, lo., purchased 500,000 feet
of logs from Durant & Wheeler, and S.
& J. C. Atlee, of Fort Madison, Jo., pur
chased several rafts from the llersey-
Bean Lumbar company, the logs to be
delivered early in the spring. A large
amount of lumber is being shipped from
the various mills ill the city and vi
cinity.
The action of Justinia Jensen vs. Em
ery McGeaet al. was tried yesterday in
the district court. The action was for
the possession of eighty acres of land

sold to Leckey at a mortgage sale for a

Leckey had no right to the land, and the
jury, after being out lifteen minutes,
returned a verdict for the ulaintitf.
H. C. Fogle, general manager of the
Minnesota Thresher company, returned
yesterday from an extended business
trip in the East. When asked in regard
to the proposed consolidation of the
various thresher manufacturers in the
United .States, he said that nothing
farther had been done in regard to the
matter and that he had nothing to say
at present.
The jury in the action of A. B. Stick
ney vs. D. C. Gasjin, and Jourdain «&
Matlicws as sureties, after beinir out
about twenty hours, reported that they
could not agree apon a verdict, and tlie
jury was discharged. Tlie action was

POOL ROOMS.
Judicially Decided That the Busi
ness May Flourish.
New York, Dec. 31.— general
term of the supreme court handed down
Monday a decision signed by Chief
Justice Van Brunt, and concurred in
by Justices Brady and Daniels, which
will interest not only every jockey club,
bookmaker, and poolseller, but every
citizen who has ever bet a dollar on a
horse, or who expects to bet in the
future. The apparent effect of the de
cision is to allow poolsellingjor its equiv
alent to be conducted in this city when
ever it is lawful on the race tracks.
Last May Thomas F. Wynn, proprie
tor of a pool room at No. 3 Barclay
Street, was tried and convicted in the
court of general sessions before Judge
Marline and a jury for a violation of the
ni.ol law. Oil the trial of the case Will
iam F. Howe, who defended Wynn,
claimed that the prisoner did not violate
the terms of the Ives pool bill, which
gave the public the privilege of betting
on horse races at legally constituted
race tracks between May 15 and Oct. 15.
Mr. Howe insisted that if it was
legal to bet on the race track it
was equally lawful for the public
to delegate a bookmaker or any person
to receive money for the purpose of
making a bet on "the race track, within
the prescribed period, in a house or room
in this city, as well as on the race track
itself, and, when the evidence for the
prosecution had ended, Mr. Howe
moved that Judge Marline instruct the
jury to acquit. This Judge Martine de
nied, saying that the action of the de
fendant was merely a trick and a device
and subterfuge to evade the law.
The case was taken at once to the su
preme court and elaborate arguments
made. Chief Justice Van Brunt hand
ed down an opinion, concurred in by
Judges Daniels and Brady, reversing
Judge Marline, saying: "It was clearly
error to submit to the jury the question
of nn's guilt under the evidence
produced by the prosecution, and the
court should nave directed an acquit
tal.
'J his decision will open the po< 1
rooms in New York from May 15 to Oct.
15, a period which covers all the racing
in the state. To the pool room men the
decision comes with especial relish, for
they have had hard limes for the last
eiKht months. Up -to April 15, when
tlie Dwyeis opened their track at Eliza
beth, pool rooms in this city had prac
tice ly their own way. There were
about twenty-live of them, located prin
cipally on Park row, Barclay and
Twenty-eighth streets, and, with the
exception of occasional interruptions of
a day or two, they were not molested.
Just how the decision of Chief Justice
Van Brunt will affect the pool rooms
during the period when the Ives bill
does not legalize pool selling, from Oct.
15 to May 15, remains to be seen. It is
illegal to sell pools in New York, but
will it be illegal in New York to accept
commissions to bet in Mew Jersey? This
will probably be the next question de
cided.
Phil Dwyer was interviewed to-night
by a reporter. lie bad heard of the de
cision of Judge Van Brunt, and believed
it was calculated to injure race tracks,
and, therefore, racing.
"\\ c will be compelled to take further
measures to protect racing,'" said Mr.
Dwyer. "If the law provides that wool
rooms in the city are common carriers
under the Ives bill, I see no reason why
they cannot transact the same business
all the year around for any race track.
It will furnish the same objectionable
loophole that existed before. 1 feel con
fident Unit public opinion is against city
pool rooms, and will heartily encourage
any effort made to keep them closed."'

THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: THLiESDAT MOENIXG, JANUARY 1, 1801.
WHEAT DROPS DOWN.
The Market Weak. Owing to
Unfavorable Reports From
Wall Street.
A Slight Advance Bumps
Squarely Against the Call
Price.
Minneapolis and Duluth Show
Heavy Increase in Ar
rivals.
Corn Market Strong Under
the Influence of Damp
Weather.
Chicago, Dec. 31.— The wheat market
opened weak and lower under the influence
of the rain and the failure reported from New
York of the Wall street linn of Bateman
Bros. The opening price for the May deliv
ery was 07% c, with a few sales at 97*-<ic, and
one or two transactions at 97'.'2C. There was
a good demand at the decline and an imme
diate advance, which, at the end of the first
ten minutes, caused some of the sellers at the
start to buy back at 9Sc the wheat they had
sold at Uic opening for 97% c. The advance
at this point bumped against the call price,
and a consequent moderate reaction oc
curred. The cables were even stronger in
tone than they were yesterday. Some weak
ness was occasioned by the receipts at Min
neapolis and Dul nth showing, as com
pared with preceding years' arrivals,
another heavy increase. The country
receipts in the Northwest, however,
have almost ceased. Rradstrcits' estimated
the stockseast of the Kocky mountains to
have increased 959,000 bu during last week.
The early sellers swelled the crowd who
were shouting for wheat on the first advance
until the selling against calls created the
slight revulsion of feeling already alluded to,
which caused a reaction Irorn 98c to 973ic.
The price advanced to OS' ,->c after the re
action Jast referred to, and afterwards fluc
tuated narrowly in the neighborhood of f Se.
The last hour of the session was absorbed by
the usual noisy demonstrations with which
the members of the beard are accustomed to
bid gcod-bye to the departing year. The
corn market was strong under the influence
of the damp weather, which will, of course,
lessen the proportion of No. 2in the daily
receipts. A more powerful factor than the
weather was the decided stand on
the bull side assumed by ilutehin
son. The shippers were on the buying
Bide also. The range in May corn was from
52% cto 52"fee, the lowest price prevailing at
the opening; the last trading was at 52% c,
and that price was bid at the close. There
was a good trade in oats. The opening for
May was at 45(&45V8C, both prices prevailing
auho same time. Thence to 45i.':>c to 45IAC.
to4s?fcc to4SV2C to 405'6C on the close, the
last price being %c above that of yesterday.
The provision market was active and strong.
The receipts of bogs were far from answer
ing the extravagant expectations indulged
In by some of the operators yesterday. In
stead of 40,000 to 50,000 hogs, the arrivals
were only estimated at 30,000.. The packers
were operating on both sides with consider
able freedom. Pork for May sold from
511.3-",2 at the start to 811.50, and closed at
§11.421/2. Lard was 2ii>e higher than at the

The Year Closes ' With a Fairly
Active Marlte< .
New York, Dec. 31.— Considering that this
was the last day of the year, the stock mar
ket displayed a'sood deal of strength on a
fairly active business, and money was com
paratively easy all through the day. The
failure of Bntemnn & Co. had no effect other
than a sentimental one. Opening prices
were in many cases lower than last night's,
while snp(!i»f nressure carried further de
cline in a few stocKß. • The temper, of the.
market . underwent a : sharp :, change for
the l etter before the entire first hour. The
trading, however; failed to show any special
feature of note outside of the sharp; rise in
Lake Er|c & Western in the " last moment.
': The loving continued right up »o : the •■ close,
which was dull, but firm at or near, the best
prices of the .- day. The . final changes are
almost invariably advances. Railroad bonds
shewed a moderate amount of animation,
with a strong tone, and many of the active ;
bonds scored material improvement. Sales
reached . 51.555.000. . " Government bonds
have been dull and steady. State bonds have

& Son, pork packers of this city, made an as
signment to-day for the benefit of their
creditors. Assets, $62,000; liabilities. §75,

Wheat was rather firmer yesterday during
the morning hours, excepting at the opening.
There was fair buying until about 11 o'clock,
after which business was turned into play
and there was nothing in the way of busi
ness to speak of later. : The buying was
maijily in. the course of settlement "and news
hat} little place in regulating prices. ' The
late decrease of wheat and Hour on passage
and the good demand . for cash wheat by
millers were the strong points in the situa
tioii.
: Total receipts at the four principal spring
whe,at points since Aug. 1, • the be
ginuing ,of the crop year, foot up:
Minneapolis. 28,503,221 bu; Duluth 10,

891 bu, against 61.508,275 bu during the
-same time last year, nnd 39.381.447 bu in
1888. The total receipts of wheat nt the four

to date are 20,157,346 bu, against 22,722.

ing the same time in 1880 and 0,730,457

CASH WHEAT.
The arrivals of wheat were 309 cars aud
the shipments 158 cars. That left receipts
above shipments less than the mills ground
here in the twenty-four hours. The demand
was good for wheat, and much of the offer
ings was disposed of before the trading was
interrupted by sport. The prices obtained
were rather higher than the closing of Tues
day with the buying of the usual character
for milling, shipping and elevator handling.

Flour— The added daily output ot the mills
grinding yesterday probably aggregated 22,

at§[email protected] for fir.st patents; §[email protected] for
second patents; [email protected] for fancy and
export bakers' : [email protected] for low grades in
bags, including red dog.
Hour sales were In some instances report
ed more liberal, though not free yet. The
production is light also. If : there were a
large output there would be an accumulation
that might be disagreeable .perhaps. There
Is considerable flour going abroad all the
Mine. ■ The exports are of both patents and
bakers', which keeps what might, otherwise
be a disturbing surplus out of the domestic
calculation. Prices were hardened a little
by the rise started in wheat yesterday, with
out making real changes in actual quota
tions. " On the whole, the position of flour iv
the markets of the world that Minneapolis
flour reaches is promising of at least average
satisfaction In the future of the crop season.

COMPARATIVE PRICES.
Corn is 40 per cent higher than last year,
and oats about as much, with most other
things from the farm in similar proprortion.
Butler, now getting to be an important pro
duction, averages some 2G per cent above
last year's Drices. This advance is not to the
favor of choice grades alone, for the low
qualities that ought not to exist in such
abundance are selling as much above last
years prices as the high qualities are. Thus
large sums find tbeir way into the hands of
country merchants, agents or manufacturers,
and in other ways keep in circulation. The
difficulty in getting cheap money to float
speculative enterprises throughout the coun
try curtailed movements in them, so that
such demand, being less active, leaves the
generol market easier.
■ DAIIIV PRODUCTS. .

Potatoes— The market is about at a stand
still, demand not having recovered from the
