The sudden ckangea in the manage rueDt of the Dakota insane asylum, lo cated at YanktoD, by which Superin tenhent Ettor and Assistant Superin tendent Hall go out, is the snbjeot of mnoh comment in our city. It is a mat ter of oommon notority that the present board of trustees was organized for the express purpose of placing Dr. Etter in the asylum as supeiintendent and that the entire deal was a consummation of political re wards promised in advance of the legis lative session and of the legislative elec tion. It was practically stipulated, before appointmeut, that a majority of the board should vote to give the place to Dr. Etter. The competency of that pen tleman was reoognized by the public and no reasonable citizen oould object to his appointment to the position, though the methods employed to se cure such appointment have been made the subject of just critioism. It was predicted in the beginning that the same influences which placed him at the head of the affairs of the insane asylum would eventually dethrone him. The fulfillment of this prediction has oome even sooner than was expected by those aooustomed to the ways of the professional politioian. As the quarrel is a family quarrel, in a politioal sense, that extensive portion of the public which exists outside of the combination occupies the position of spectators of a deplorably interesting performance which has just reached its conclusion. Of course it is understood that the superintendent did not resign of his own accord. He was requested to resign and there was no alternative other than a compli ance with the request. It is generally believed that the doctor made a good superintendent, and in the absence of any facte to the oontrary this must be accepted as the fact. Ho is an old resi dent of Yankton and a physician of ex cellent standing. That he permitted bis ambition to induce him to become a party to a questionable politi cal alliance will deprive him of much sympathy which would other wise have gone to him at this time. He threw himself into the embrace of cold, unfeeling politicians, and while they were affectionately twining their arms abjut him they inserted the fatal knife in his back. They have performed the assassin aot upon many others and why should not Dr. Etter now beeome their victim? With the experience of their career of base ingratitude before him be trusted them and they betrayed him. The unexpected has not happened this time. Tho shocking public disgrace recently brought to light at an institution of learning at Sioux Falls, resulting in the death of a lovely and innocent wife and the hopelesB loss of reputation of other persons, has aroused emotions of horror and ind'gnation among thousands of readers. F. W. Perry, the cause of this calamity, is a very yonng, gay, dudish looking exquisite, whose accomplish ments were of a very taking but super ficial sort. It is but little over a year sinoa F. W. Peny entered Dakota, re maining first at Flandrau among friends, and persistent efforts were made to es tablish him over an academv at that place. We understand that the young man's father, actuated by a noble desire to aid the cause of education in the west and secure his son in a permanent and honorable employment, had by will de voted 85,000 to building an academy in some western town, with the condition that the son should own, teach and manage the same. Flan drau made a strong pull to seoure the glittering bait, and the self-styled "professor" was a year ago greatly lion ized and patronized there, partly for the sake of the chink and partly for his beauty, style and accomplishments. He led und taught the brass band, played at the skating rink regularly, dazzled the young folks by his fine skating and bi cycling, and entranced them with his abilities at singing negro jubilee songs in publio. He was well qualified for "end man" at a show, henee all Flan dran thought him just the "professor" for the training of their youth. But Sioux Falls thought so too and Siuux Falls overbid the weaker town, got the gay Peny with hia five thousand, built the "university" and opened the school with Perry as professor (,f Greek and Latin. This explains the fact that Perry had a $4,000 mortgage on the building which the trustees are going to pay off hoping then to be clear of the smooth young libertine in whose hands they had placed the morals of their school, year ago Prof. Perry and wife and Dr. Spafford and wife were Flandrau'a leaders of fashion and elegance. The Sionx Falls special ia our laet evening's issue, tells the revolting affair whioh cosed the sudden death of Mrs. Perry and very disastrous consequences to the others, as well as probable injury to the school founded to provide a good posi tion for an unwoithy son. Parson Downs, the Boston Baptist preacher of unsavory reiiown, has been expelled from the conference. From every Dakota point visited by M. H. Day in his present swing around the oirole is sent forth a telegram which reads about as follows: M. H. Day, who looks carefully after the interests of Dakota democrats in matters of appointments, has been con ferring with leading demoorats to-day. It is believed he is trying to induce sentiment favorable to Bartlett Tripp for the United States senator on the plea that his eleotion will secure divi sion and admission. This is growing tiresome. Mr. Tripp has just been given a high position by the democratic adminstration and it is not probable that he is seeking prefer ment at the hands of a republican legislature. Day Bhotild remember that his party has onco repudiated tho state legislature and the constitution. It may be well to remember tho foots, Besides this it wants to be remembered that all tickets print ed by the friends of the scheme were worded "for the constitution—yes." There was no "BO." This in itself was a most wretched pothouse politioal dodge, Vermillion Republican. It would also be well for the Republi can to remember facts once in a while and to deal in them occasionally. The tickets printed by the state executive committee bore the words: "For the constitution. Yes. No." The voter erased either tho "yes" or the "no," as he saw fit. Important chaugea are about to oocor in the management of the Milwaukee road. Assistant General Manager Clark has resigned and Assistant Gen eral Superintendent Prior will take his place. Fred Underwood, superintend ent of the I. fc D. division, succeeds Mr. Prior and W.J. Underwood, superin tendent of the Sioux City and Dakota division, takes Fred Underwood's place. It is not yet known who will be superintendent of the Sioux City & Da kota division. GETTING READY. The,Jlou»e Itcmarrats Preparing to Slnipe l"or the (SCMMIOII—X«W HIIICN. Washington, Dec. 2—The democratic members will hoi a caucus Saturday afternoon to nominate officers and de cide upon a revision of the rales of the house. There is no doubt that the old officers will be elected. Fx-Oongress mau John B. Clark, of Missouri, will be chosen olerk without opposition. J. P. Leedom, of Ohio, will likely be elected sergeant-at-armp, although W. W. Arm strong, of the Cleveland Plandoaler, is making a hot fight for tho place. Ly curgus Dulton, of Indiana, will be re elected postmaster. There is a vacancy iu the office of doorkeeper, for which John B. Trainer, ol New York Eugene fliggius, of Mary land Nat Taylor, of Virginia, and Sam uel Donaldson, ot Tennessee, ale candi dates. The latter has the beBt chance, as the south is entitled to some recogni tion in the origunizution of the house, and he is the only candidate from that section, Taylor being really a resident of the district. Carlisle will bore-elect ed speaker of the houBe without opposi tion, although the republicans will un doubtedly nominate Frank Hiscock as a compliment to their leader. The organ ization will only require few mometns of the lime of the caucus. The chief business to be transacted is the revision of the rules. Hie code whioh Springer has pre pared, ana which has received the sanc tion of Carlisle, Morrison and other deniooratio leaders, has been printed and a copy will be furnished to each mem ber advance, so that he can have an opportunity to study it before he goes into oaucuu. There are 183 democratic members, and it is claimed that all but filly-two have given their assent to the changes which Springer, Carlislo and company recommended. Very few of the fifty two have declared their opposi tion. The rest are non-committal and are supposed to be waiting to see what Mr. liaudall will do. The republican membeis who have reaohed Washington are pretty generally favorable to the re vision, or at kast, to the prinoipal changes that are proposed. The repub licans will undoubtedly consider the question in caucus and unite on some sort of polioy. Mr. Carlisle, anticipating bie£eleotion as speaker, has already made up his list of oommittees, and will be ready, he says, to announce them within twenty four hours after the organization of the house. There will be very few,changes in the committees, Mr. Carlisle says, the present, substituting new men for tboBe who were not returned to this congress. While he has not made any authorized announcement, the list already made up has been shown to a number of persona and from what they have said it is easy to guess the composition of the chief committees and the assignments of the principal chairmanships The commit tee on ways ond means will consist of Mortison, of Illinois Mills, of Texas Blount, of Georgia Hewitt, of New York Herbett, of Alabama Eelley, of Pennsylvania Hiscock, ot New York Brown, of Indiana, and iteed, of Maine, who were in the last ooagresc. There ore four vacancies which will probably be filled by the Beleoiion of Barbour, of Virginia Singleton, of Mis sissippi one of tbje Ohio demoorats not yet selected, and Long,of Massachusetts. The committee on appropriations will be composed of Bandall, Forney, of Alabama Holman, of Indiana Reagan, of Texas Townsbend, of Illinois Ham mond, of Georgia BHSB, of New York Lefevre, of Ohio Burns, of Missouri Cannoc, of Illinois Jhlyan, of Kansas, Henderson, of Iowa Burrows, of Michigan Waite, of Pennsylvania and Butterworth of Ohio. The following gentlemen will be as signed to the prinoipsl chairmanships: Judiciary, Tucker, of Virginia: banking and ourrenoy, Er men bout, of 'Pennsyl vania elections, Turner, of Georgia rivers and harbors, Willis, of Kentucky foreign affairs. Curl in, of Pennsylvania military affairs, Woolford, of Kentucky naval affairs, Collins, of MussaohnsettH: postoffioes and post roads, Reese, of Georgia public lands, Cobb, of Indiana Indian affairs, Wellborn, of Texap. '"KTW®^ v^-vi 11.'^ v1 %L *SP f( /iSTj ,« NUMBER 170. OUR RED MEN. Annual Report of Indian Commission er Atkins—Sncsestlons Relative to tho Coffee Coolers. Washington, Dec. 2—Gen. J. D. C. Atkins, commissioner of Indian affairs, has submitted to the secretary of the interior his annual report for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1885. Tho com missioner prefaces his report with the' statement that: "It requires no seer to forteil, or forseo the civilization of the Indian raoo as a result naturally deduoi-: ble from knowledge and praotioe upon their part of the art of agnoulture, for' the history of agriculture among all-: people, and in all countries, intimately1^ conneots it with the highest intellectual and moral development of man." He' continues: "The increased interest in agriculture manifested since the opening of last spring, and the prepara tion of several reservations for still in creased fecreago in farming are among the hopeful signs of Indian progress and development. This brings me direotly ito the consideration of the praotical pol-' icy whioh, I believe, should be adopted by congress and the government in the management of the Indians. It should be industriously and gravely impressed hpbn them that they must abandon a re at on a a an in severalty, as the. cornerstone of their complete suocess in ogriculture, whioh means self support, personal independ enoe and material thrift. The govern ment Bhould, however, in order to pro tect them, retain the right to their land in trust for twenty-five years or longer,' but issue trust patents ut once to such Indians as have token individual hold ings. When Indians have taken their lands in severalty in auffioient quantities (and the number of acres iu each holding may and should vary in different localities, according to fertility, productiveness, climate ond ether ad- .v vantages), then having due regard to tho immediate and future early needs to the Indians, The remaining lands of''' their reservations should bo purchased by the government and opened to home stead entry at fifty or seventy-five cents per acre. The money paid by tho gov ernment for their lands should be in truBt in live percent bonds, to be in vested as congresB may provide, for the education, civilization and material de-•••• velupment and advbnoe the red race, re serving for each tribe in its own money. If this polioy were adopted systematic ally by the government, it would be strange if, in five years from this inaug-' uration and establishment, there should be an Indian of any tribe in the whole country who would refuse to aocept so fuvorable and advantageous a measure. Every step taken, every move made,' every suggestion offered, everything1? done with reference to the Indians, should be done with a view to impress iug upon them that this is the policy which bus been permanently decided up on by the government in reference to their government. They must abandon tribal relationa. They must give up their superstitious. They must forsake their savage habits, and learn the arts^ of civilization. They must learn to labor and must learn to rear their fami. lies as while people do, and to know more of their obligations to the govern ment and Bociety. In a word, they must learn to work for a living, and they must:' understand that it is their duty to send their children to school. When the farm and school have become fumilar in stitutionB among the Indians, and a reasonable time has intervened for the transition from barbarism, or a semi-oiv-v llized ntate, to one of civilization, tbeu will the Indian be prepared to take up on bimeelf the higher and more respon sible duties ond privileges which an pertain to American citizenship. There arc in the United States, exclusive of Alaska, 260,000 Indians, fully half of whom liave as yet deolined to commit themselves to tne life of a farmer. Ex elusive of the lands cultivated byJjhe civilized tribes, the number of aoreVin cultivation by Indians during the year numbei' 248,241, an increase of 18,473 since lact year's figures." Referring to the Indian outbreaks in the 8outhwe6t, the commissioner says: "It has been deemed advisable to place ail the Apaches temporarily under charge of the war department, that de portment to have full authority neces sary for their management. This office heartily sympatizes with the effort of the wur department to oontrol the Chi raoahuas, and I trust that the military will be able to capture the murderous band now.skulking in the Sierra Madre mountains, and to bring them to condign punishment." How to Make a Town. "Show us a town," says an exchange, "that is torn up with dissensions, spites and jealousies and we will show you a town that is on the verge of decay. No town oan or will amount to anything whore these tbiBgs exist. Unity pro motes prosperity and growth, while dis sension and division demoralize and ruin. When a stranger somes to a town and finds the oommunity pulling in op-:' posite direotions the next tram gener ally carriea him beyond its reaob. Noth ing is made by dividing a town, but everything lost. There are thousands of examples of this throughout the weBt. The way for every town to do that de sires prosperity is for every property, holder to invite capital to the town-, irrespective of its particular looality.
