It will be notioed by reference to our
telegraphic oolumns of yesterday that
the house committee on Pacifio railroads
has agreed to a favorable report upon
the bill authorizing the Union Paoific to
bnild branch lines. This bill has passed
the senate and the conclusion of the
house oommittee is almost equivalent to
its passage by the house. The act is
one of importance to the people of this
neighborhood, as it foreshadows tbe
construction of Union Pacifio feeders in
northern Nebraska and a line or two
President Cleveland's marriage to
Miss Frank Folsom was consummated
last evening in a quiet and, for
tial affair, unostentatious manner. The
twain were made one, under the roof of
the white house, and the land now has a
first lady. That she is a lady in every
sense of the term the best authorities
assert and the country can congratulate
itself along with its congratulations to
the ohief executive over tho event whioh
has given him so charming a bride. The
ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr.
Sunderland, tbe president's pastor, and
the following parties were the witnesses:
Miss Cleveland and Mrs. Hoyt, the
president's sisters, and Mrs Nelson,
their guest Mre. Folsom and Ben Fol
som, the mother and uncle of the bride,
and Mr. and Mrs. G. P. Rogers, of Sen
eca Falls Dr. and Mrs. Sunderland, the
president's pastor and wife Secretary
Bayard and his eldest daughter Secre
tary and Mrs. Manning, Secretary and
Mrs. Whitney, Secretary and Mrs.

General and Mrs.
has not been unduly excited over this
event. It has been interested and it
feels tbe usual exuberance which a
wedding scene inspires. It will think
better of Mr. Cleveland, too,'for the
act and it will concede that he weais
his forty-nine years with more patri
archal grace now that, he has become the
head of a family.
With the approval of the secretary of
the interior, Commissioner Sparks has
issued an order suspending all timber
culture, pre-emption and desert land
entries for two months and directing
local land officers to refusa to receive
applications for suoh entries. This is
done in anticipation of the passage by
the senate and the approval by tbe
president of an aet repealing the timber
oalture, pre-emption and desert land
laws, which has already passed the house.
staggers some of tbe wise beads
learned in land office lore when oalled
upon to explaiu by what authority
exeontive branch of the government
anticipates the passage of a law and
orders its subordinate* to carry it into
effeot before it becomes a law. Upon
the same theory Dakota could declare
itself divided and admitted without oon
veying a shook to the Sioux Falls Press.
There are several bills pending in con
gress upon that subject. Bat it lfi con
ceded that an order frcsx the interior
department must be obeyed
ordinates of that department. When the
question of tbe authority for tbe pro
mulgation of suob an order is raised it
is smet with the query, "what are yon
going to do about it?" Truly, nothing
can bo done. A would be pre-emptoror
a mas who covets
timber traot cannot
mandamus the government of the Uni
ted States. He might institute
damage* if be was young and certain of
along lease of life and bad plenty of
means to carry on the contest. But thiB
method is impracticable and tbe prema
ture order of tbe department trill stand
as solidly as though it was backed
law of congress. The order will prove
a hardship to numerous democratic land
offi/jersj for it takes away
only the poor pickings of the homestead
field for their emoluments. Along with
the land speculators they must suffer.
We would like to enquire of the news
papers which so violently repudiate tho
statehood movenent and yield sub
serviency to the power which has again
clubbed them to tbe ground, what their
proposed plan of operations is. They
profess to be ardently desirious of eu
joying the benefits of division and state
hood, yet they act and speak as the open
opponents of division and statehood aet
aud speak. What is tbe public to un
derstand by this affiliation with antagon
istic forces—this lying down with the
men whose efforts have contributed to
the defeat of tho cherished hopes of
south Dakota in congress? Have they
any well defined projeots for the future"?
Or do tbey propose to submit to the
creation of an undivided state? Will
they annouuoe their plan? Or will they
prefer to hide iu the grass and ridicule
and belittle the efforts of Dakotaians
whose interest in the cause induces them
to take an unconcealed position iu be
half of what they believe to be right?
If they have a plan it is hardly fair to
keep it in concealment.
The Sioux Falls Press has reached
that point in its anti-statehood declara
tions where it mentions as
well known citizens as John A. Owen,
of De Smet E. P. Beebtte, A. C. Phil
lips and A. Frizzell, of Sioux Falls A.
J. Kellam, of Chamberlain Joseph

General H. J. Campbell, of Tankton.
These are its words
The Press has always been one of the
most zealous aud consistent advocates of
division and statehood. Because it is
opposed to having the people of Dakota
make a paok of fools of themselves, as
a few cranks seem determined to have
