fled of the Recent State
Meeting Held at
Special to The Globe.
SIOUX FALLS. S. D., Feb. 21.-Officers
cl the South Dakota Business Men's as
sociation, which recently held a meeting
at Huron for the purpose of arranging
for a r : tate exhibit at the St. Louis ex
position, are unable to understand why
the people of the Black Hills are dissat
isfied with the action taken.
Dispatches from Black Hills points are
to the effect that that region is serious
ly contemplating cutting loose from the
eastern part of the state and having an
exhibit of its own. The chief ground of
complaint, to judge by the tone of the
dispatches, is that they were not notified
that a meeting would be held at Huron,
and consequently were not represented
at the meeting.
In answer to this complaint It can be
stated that the people of the Black Hills
had precisely the same notice as those
living in the eastern part of the state.
The South Dakota Business Men's asso
ciation does not assess its members, and
therefore never has a cent in its treas
ury, each member paying his own ex
penses in attending meetings, etc. In
view of this notices of meetings are al
ways given through the newspapers, as
was done in this case.
No notices were mailed to any of the
members, either in the eastern or western
portions of the state—there being no
funds on hand for the cost of printing
and postage—notices of the approaching
meeting at Huron having been sent only
to the newspapers. These notices were
first published two weeks before the
meeting at Huron on the sth of the pres
ent month, giving ample time for each
and every part of the state to be rep
It appears to be the belief of many
residents of that part of the state that
if they secure the pledges of enough
members of the legislature a special ses
sion would be called for the express pur
pose of appropriatng money for a state
exhibit, at St. Louis. Such is not the
case. Under no circumstances will Gov.
Herreid call a special session to act upon
this matter as he is of the opinion that
such action, the calling of a special ses
sion, would be a flagrant violation of the
state constitution which permits the call
ing of special legislative sessions only
on "extraordinary occasions."
Stillwater News,
The state board of control and V> a,s;den
Wolfer. of the state prison, have com
pleted the duty assigned to them ot ux
ing twine prices for the coming twine
season at the prison, and it will be no
ticed that prices are considerably nigner
than they were last year, which, accord
ing to a statemo"-t made by \V ard.?n
Wolfer yesterday afternoon, is due o
the high price of the fiber used m the
manufacture of twine. For this season
the state will dispose of its standard
twine at 9% cents per pound, and only
one grade of twine will be made. i.ne I
factory is now turning out 33,000 pounds
of twine daily and will continue at its
full capacity as long as the demand for
twine continues. From now on small
cash orders and club orders will be re
ceived from farmers, and if there is any
twine left May 1 orders will be receiv
e.i from dealers. The law, however, pro
vides that 500,000 pounds of twine must
be retained at the factory for small cash
orders, so that farmers sending in their
orders will be sure of getting twine.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 21.— It is esti
mated at the state department that fif
teen days have now elapsed since the
money for Miss Stone's ransom was paid
over to the agents of the brigands. There
is no explanation for the delay. It is
hoped that physical conditions, such as
heavy snow and adverse weather, may
account for the failure to secure her de
livery. The officials are loath to believe
that there has been a breach of faith on
the part of the brigands, feut, even if
this were so, they do not regard them
selves as blameworthy for having trusted
From the first the United States gov
ernment has been adverse to paying the
ransom, but in response to appeals from
every quarter it reluctantly authorized
Mr. Leishman to deal with the brigands
However, if it turns out that the bri
gands have broken faith and that they
either have taken the ransom money and
spirited the captives away again or that
they have killed them, then there will be
no further attempt to deal with the bri
sands on the part of the United States
government, but its entire power will
be directed upon Turkey and upon Bul
garia to procure the swift and certain
extermination of the brigands, regardless
of cost or effort.
Was Seen La at Saturday.
Cabling from" Seres, European Turkey,
upnder date of Feb. 21, the correspondent
of the London Daily Graphic says that
Miss Stone was seen last Saturday es
corted by twenty-five armed brigands, in
the Bozdagh mountains, at the southern
extremity of the Perim range, thirty miles
from Seres. ML Gargiulo, the dragoman
of the American legation at Constantino
ple, says that if the foregoing be true,
there is likelihood of an encounter be
tween the brigands and the troops pa
troling that country, in which case it is
doubtful whether the brigands would al
low the captives to escape alive.

Ambassador White Talks on the Re
lations of the Two .Nations"at '
a Washington Birth
day Banquet. '■
BERLIN, Feb.* 21.—Andrew D. White,
the American ambassador here, presid
ing , tonight at an i assemblage of ' 3tW -
Americans who' celebrated ..Washington's"
birthday at the Kaiserhof ;by a musical
entertainment'- followed by supper - and a
dance, said in an address: : ;
"Sundry writers on this side of the At
lantic have been especially eloquent 'in
denouncing the general hatred |of Ger
many " and the - Germans which they in
sist obtains in the ; United States. Much
has been said of 'Deutschenhetze' (Ger
man - baiting), jj and this has g been -placed
in such a lurid light that one would -al/
most believe that on the appearance of
one of our German-American fellow cit
izens % upon the ; streets of an American
city, the citizens of American birth were
ready to cry havoc and let loose on him
the : dogs of war. ' .
"It has : been my duty for five years
to read with considerable iconscientious
ness a number of ; the foremost' American
newspapers, : representing^ the . dominant
thought ;in various | parts of the Union,
and I- can most truthfully.; say that I
have failed to find the . slightest trace of
such 'Deutschenhetze,' I did not discover
anything like hatred or a persecuting
spirit - toward the German-Americans lon
the American -. continent. s;^i^:, ; :;s:. :^
"On the other side it has been insist
ed by more or less well-meaning people
in the United States that a dark cloud
between the two countries reajly exists,
and that in the times of which ancient
history makes mention and especially
during our Spanish war, the German g"bv.
ernment was somewhat hostile to the
United States, or in some manner, which
nobody seems to be able to give with
precision, the German government did
something which It ought not to have
done, alnd left undone something which
it ought to have done. To thi3 answer
has been made, if I may be allowed here
to refer to it, by myself, as one com
petent to express opinion on the sub
ject, with the declaration that tho con
duct of the German government to
ward us during the Spanish war was ex
cellent. The German government ob
server a strict neutrality and showed
no unfriendly spirit. From first to last
it never made any suggestions or pro
posals that embarrassed us in the slight
est degree. In fact the conduct of the
German government was all that we
could desire.
"Some self-constituted guardians of
the welfare of the United States have
insisted that, if not the imperial gov
ernment, it was the honored and revered
sovereign of the empire who spread this
cloud over the relations of the two na
tions by promoting, or, if not promoting,
by joining in a league to intervene to
stop the war.
No Need of Worrying.
"On this account various people have
really made themselves very unhappy.
Now, however, within a fortnight all
this has been cleared away, and it has
been shown beyond a doubt that the re
vered and beloved sovereign of this
country refused to take part in anything
■«\hich could be cotistixed as interference
in the contest, and refused in such a
manner as to show that he respe'eted
the motives and appreciated the feelings
of the American government.
Tonight, even at this very moment, oth
er exhibitions of the good feeling be
tween the German and American gov
ernments are taking place. Thanks to
wireless telegraphy, messages of hearty
good will are flashing- to and from the
Kronprinz Wilhelm which bears the hon
ored representative of the emperor to our
shores. These messages go to all parts of
our country; they also come from all
parts of cur country, for the mission ot
our royal guest is clearly seen to be one
of peace and kindness.
"It is seme times said that missions
and demonstrations like the one now be
ginning in America accomplish nothing,
for the reason that they settle no really
important questions. An assertion like
this betrays a very narrow view of pub
lic affairs on the part of any person
making it. It is doubtless true that such
demonstrations do not directly settle
pending questions between nations, but
is it none the less true that such demon
strations, hearty and kindly and arous
ing a better feeling in both nations, are
powerful in creating an atmosphere in
which the pending questions are more
easily settled.
"We have every reason, then, this even
ing to rejoice at this restored reign of
good will. As to the clouds of myth and
legend hanging over the relations of the
two countries we have every reason to
hope they have passed away. Certainly,
this eve of Washington's birthday may
well be celebrated joyfully."
WASHINGTON. Feb. 21.—Final ratifica
tion of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, giv
ing England's assent to the construction
of a canal across Central America by the
United States, were exchanged at the
state department at 3 o'clock this after
noon by Ambassador Pauncefote and Sec
retary Hay. There was very little cere
mony about the exchange of ratifications.
It has been suggested tfiat with the
completion of this great work the Brit
ish government might regard Lord Paunce
fote's services endea, but Lord Lans
downe, the secretary of foreign affairs,
has signified to Loi'd Pauncefote his de
sire that he shall remain in Washington
for an indfinite period.

Star Goal Keeper of St. Paul Team

' J. H. , Jones, the star goal keeper for
the St. Paul hockey ■ team, and . the most
brilliant player in that position this city ,

for Houghton, Mich., :to play, with f; the
team of all stars representing that place.
He ~ has been offered jia, lucrative position, ;
and in addition to playing hockey, will be
a valuable acquisition ; to; the; Houghton -
lacrosse - team. His l leaving .will greatly
cripple the ; local team, , .as, _ with Arm

good luck. - : '•■°-:/'■
His departure practically settles ttte re-;

have had a fair chance to win; as it was,
they, were snowed under.

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 21.—The Milwaukee
Brewers' association has decided to raise
the price of beer soon, unless a reduc
tion of the war tax is made. The amount
of the rise is not yet decided, but will
be determined by the action of congress.
The reason for the proposed advance,
according to a prominent member of the
association, is that material of all kinds
entering into the manufacture of beer, as
well as labor, is high in price.

Across the street there lives a maid,
A jolly, teasing little jade,
With wanton hair and witching eyes,
And yet, so staid and worldly wise
That, if she deigns to send a glance
Across ray way, It seems mere chance,
And Tiuick withdraws in swift reti'eat
Across the street.
Across the street I sit and look,
Forgetful of my pipe and book;
I see her shadow on the pane.
And build me castles in far Spain.
I watch and wait,, with patience rare,
Til], lust as 1 would quite despair,
She looks from out her window seat
Across the street.
Across the street hath come a change;
The window hath a tenant strange.
Who moves me to no rosy dreams;
My brain no more with castles teems—
What use have I for fancies frail?
The maid. aB fits romantic Ule,
Hath moved, to make my joy complete,
Across the street.

TOPEKA, Kan., Feb. 21.—The Populists
of Kansas, in session here today, decided
late tonight that there would be no af
filiation between the Pcpulist and Demo
cratic forces in Kansas this year. A
strong faction, l?d by Ex-Congressman
Ridgeley, favored absolute surrender to
the Democrats, but there were enough of
the old-time Populists to defeat this plan.
The meeting was lively throughout Ma
jority and minority reports were filed by
the committee on resolutions on the sub
ject of fusion. These were referred bacii
to the committee and a night session or
dered. At the night session exactly the
same reports were submitted, one favor
ing and one opposing affiliation with the
Democrats. The fight was stubborn, and
finally resulted in accepting the majority
report. No plans for the future conduct
of the party were made, other than that
the party would run its own affairs with
out the assistance of the Democrats.
OMAHA, Feb. 2i.—John Redell. who has

and his dismissal is the result.
