THE NATION'S CRANK.
A Divetuslon in the Jfstlonil
Kelatira tc Rnrks,
Washington, Feb 91—In addition to
bis oppression of settlers and general
wrecking of business interests in the
west, Sparks bas become so greet a na
tional issue that the house of represen
tatives has wasted one entire working
day in a disoussion of his "polioy," and
his faithful henchman suooeeded, by
appeals to the oowardly demagogio
spirit that has been manifested at every
turn in this congress, in killing the
very reforms which the commissioner
of the general land offioa bas so loudly
olamored for and assarted that "the
country must have." Fearing
that he may' be deprived of
little brief authority, Sparks has
demanded that if the courts are
to be allowed to give any relief to the
settler after he is through with him, the
whole scheme of reform must fall to the
ground, and the house to-day obeyed
the behest as if the commissioner bad
nominated and elected its members.
Cobb oalled up tbe oonferenoe seport of
disagreement on the bill repealing the
pre-emption, timber culture and desert
laws, and at onoe threw bis oolleague on
oonferenoe committee, Stone, of Mis
souri, into the breach, wbo airily told
the speaker that he had the floor in his
own right, and having an hour at his
disposal, was going to stay there. He
prooeeded with a harsh soprano voice
and angular gestures to rehearse and
rehash the old story that Sparks and
Cobb had drilled him in so
long. He cleared the house
with a celerity that amazed even some
of the oldest bores on the floor, not dur
ing bis entire soolding fit could any
body be induced to come within his
vicinity. Cobb himself would make no
speech of any length, and hints have
been dropped of his refusal to be long a
stool pigeon for Sparks or an exponent
of the viewB of the hollow demagogy
which never made itself so apparent as
when Liard of Nebraska broke bis nose
last session. The best speech of the day
was that of Payson. The argument was
old, and beneath its speoious frankness
could be seen days of cramming at tbe
general land office but no man on the
floor is better able togive sophistry an
openfaoeorto rebut affidavits to his
tory itself with his empbatio "I know.
The long-drawn ory of fraud was r»
echoed, and ghosts of alien cattle com
panies were conjured up to do dutv as
the foe whiob Sparks was actually fight
ing and to frighten the house, with
pathos that drew a snivel from sympa
thetio gentlemen who have also the
misery of greenback constituencies in
their districts to meet. Payson told
bow he loved the frontiersman, an
early settler, yet failed, as usual, to
speak of the 30,000 poor men on the
agricultural lands of tbe west whom tbe
Sparks inquisition has dragged down to
abject poverty, mined and broken in
spirits and the business interests wbioh

FARGO INSURANCE COMPANY.
its History and the Aliased Crooked
Werk of Its Secretary.
The Fargo insuronoe company has
been several times annoonoed as in a
bad way, and the Chisago News of last
Saturday publishes the result of an in
vestigation into its affairs, and duoloses
some alleged bad work on the part of its
offioen, and especially ite secretary, W.
A. Lowell, an insurance- broker of Ohi
oago. The -company was organized in
1880, With a oapital stook of $100,000.
It did very paying business untill 1884
when it went into the hail insurance
business and lost heavily, so that tbe
company became orippled. Some Iowa
gentlemen were then indnoed to put into
the worthless stook of the company $85,
000, and Sioux Falls merchants $1,600,
03 condition that tbe oompany be moved
to that oity, which was done
last August. The oompany having
been reorganized in Novmeber
some bills ooming in of wbioh the
new officers were ignorant, caused en
investigation whioh found pending
olaims against the company of about
$10,000 whioh up to that time it is said
Lowell had kept ooOoealed. It was also
discovered that a leading hoase held as
collateral on moneys borrowod by Lowell
between $80,000 and $90,000 worth of
stook of the oompany, and farther, that
the treasurer was $10,000 short in &is
accounts. It speaks of Cap! Wolfolk as
"Ospt, Wolfolk ia said to have been
timed by Lowell, having been
induced by him to invest all his smalT
property. And not only his own but his
wife's property was sacrificed, and even
tare of Ids home, including his
daughter piano, was mortgaged.
Capt. Wolfolk some time ago went to
The finding of this withered family
was tbe result of an aooident. Among
the large cattle ranohes near Buffalo
Gap was one owned by Charles Clark.
Mr. Clark has in his employ a cowboy
named William Allen. Allen had some
spare tiraa and he oonoeived
the idea of sinking a shaft in the bad
lands. He thought that with minee
on all aides it was possible that he
would strike nohee. He went out on
a prospecting tour over the barren and
inhospitable regioa. After a brief
survey he selected a spot on whioh to
begin the work ofolimbing to fortune
by the piok and shovel route. He worked
along at spare intervals for some time.
A rude windlass was erected, by means
of whioh, with his lariat and a buoket, he
managed to raise the dirt. While del
ving away one afternoon he noticed tbe
ground beneath bim giving way. He
seized the windlass rope just in time to
prevent bis exit to a then unknown
and unexplored cavity. Palling him
self to the surfaoe he began to devise
means of exploring the mystery. Night
was ooming on, so he decided to post
pone his trip to the place
where he expected to find gold
in abundance, and a hundred
other things whioh would net him
wealth and fame. After breakfast next
morning Allen strapped his gun to his
shoulder, and fasteninK one side of his
lariat to the windlass began his descent,
vowai down he went without sign of
anything, not even the bottom. He
reaohed the end of his lariat. His feet
still hung in spaoe. He could go no
farther, so he returned. The nearest
settlement to the point of Allen's ad
venture is a small town oalled Crook,
fifteen miles from Dead wood. Hither

halt a ooil and returned to his antioipat
ed gold mine. He bad also a supply of
candles, matches, eta, and with these
began his desoent onoe more. This time

feet from the surface. He was in a

St. Paul Globe, 21st: Two days ago
CoL J. H. Wood, of west St. Paul, re
ceived a consignment of freight from
Bapid City, Dakota, It consisted of
five boxes, each about three feet square,
Eaoh box contained the remains of an
individual who at some unknown period
was at home in a oave in the bad lands
of Dakota. Thev were all perfect in
form and in a remarkable state of pre
servation, being neither petrified nor
ossified, but simply withered. That is
the most appropriate way of briefly
stating their condition.
exploring the immense oave he came to
a wall of earth, in the side of whioh was
an opening. Entering there he
made the disoovery. It was
neither gold, nor silver,
monster nor devil, but orouohed down
on either side were what had once been
human beings. There were five in all, a
man, woman and three children. In
searching around nothing was found to
show to what race they belonged, how
long they had remained in the oave, or
anything else. From the fact that on
different pasts of the oave there were
marks of finger nails, it was presumed
that the family at some remote day had
been shut in by a landslide and perish
ed of suffocation. After deliberation
Allen decided to go to Scoop, a town
thirty miles from Bapid City, and get
an old friend to return and assist him
to remove the mummies. He related
his adventure to Charles Bruoe, former
ly ef Oxford, N. Y., and now living
Sundance, Dak., and together they re
turned to the oave.
Another search revealed nothing but
the five bodies. These were raised to
theaurfaoe and loaded on a wagon. The
return trip was not begun until the next
morning, and then the two men were
astonished to notice that during tbe
night the hair on the withered five
which the night before bad been intact
bad fallen off. Otherwise, exposure to
the air had wrought no ohange. The
bodies were taken to Rapid City and
kept oonoealed in a barn for some time,

The present intention is to present
the family to the Smithsonian
institution at Washington. It was near
the spot where these were found that an

ago, discovered tbe immense lower jaw
of a mastodonio animal which is now on

Bismarck Slightly Ahead.
Berlin, Feb. 22—Returns from the
elections come in slowly, but by a very
careful calculation made on tbe basis
of figures already at hand, it is generally
oonoeded that fiisnurok will snooeed in
obtaining a majority in the new reioh
stag, but one so scant that he will barely
get the septemate bill through. The
government requires forty votes to carry
the measure and twenty seats have been
won and tbe other twenty are almost
oertain to be obtained from tbe waver
ing oenter. It is oertain, however, the
the government will not obtain a sot
Anient majority to secure tbe passage of
the monopoly bills. Herr Windthorst,
leader of the oentre party is re-eleoted.
The progressive patyis wholly demo
ralized by the unexpected defeat they
have suffered. They have lost seven
teen seats already, and have only gained
one. The socialists have lost seven and
gained three. The total socialist vote
polled shows an inorease of 500,000. Tbe
national liberals have gained nearly as
many seats as they have lost.
