Denver, Moirch 1—For some months past very hard feelings have existed be tween oitizens of Leoti and Coronado, two small towns -in Wallace oounty Kansas, over the looation of the oounty seat. Frank Jonness, A. M. Barry, George Watkin, Emmet Desming, Charles Coul ter, Bill Bains and a man named Johnson left Leoti for Coronado. Upon entering that town in a wagon they noticed in a RelUclooa BUS picious .movements among some of the citizens who were on the pavement in front of one nf the stores. Coulter, Bains and Johnson spraug from the wagon and reaohed for their revolvers. No sooner had the men touched the ground than the party in front of the store poured a volley from their six-shooters into the men, instantly killing Coulter, Bains and Johnson, and wounding Jonness, Barry andWatkins so that reoovery is iin possible. The wounded men were taken to a hotel and are being oared for. None of the murderers have yet been arrested, and there seem to be no officers in the oounty that have any desire to attempt the task. Abiline, Karu, March 1—The Gazette's apeoial from Wallace, in regard to the fight' at Coronado, says: A party of armed men have started from here with coffins to bring baok the dead. The latest news from the scene was to the effect that the dead bodies were lying in the streets and that the outlaws would not permit any one to touoh them. Further developments are expected to morrow. The man Coulter is reported to have hard twenty-one bullets put into his body. He was a desperate character. That further trouble will oome of the affair, oausing more bloodshed, may be surmised from the fact- that the Leoti men received an. express package this morning containing $200 worth of firearms. The HenneplnlUea Happy. Washington, Feb. 28—The suocess of the river and harbor appropriation bill has been assured by the complete agreement of the oonferees.

An appropria tion of $60,000 is made for the beginning of construction, but there will also be available further sum of $26,000 for the surveys and preliminaries. The friends of the canal are jubilant beoanse the appropriation, while absurdly small, vives a Settled status and permanency to the sohorne. Trance. Dayton, O., Maroh 1—Great exoite meat exists at Clifton Springs ovsr the condition that Hattie Moore has been in for a week. She presented herself at the altar of the colored Baptist ohuroh for prayers,and soon afterward swooned away being oarried to the home of her parents and has remained in a semi-unoon sious state ever since, refusing food and drink. Hattie is the 14-year-old daugh ter of John Moore, a oolored teamster. All afforte of her family and watohers of the. ohuroh have thus far failed te revive her from the stupor or traooe into which she has fallen, though at times she rallies and exhibits signs of returning vitality. The more fervent members of the ohuroh and new converts assert and firmly beiieve that the girls ia laboring under deep oonviotion that she is in the borderland, and will oome out from the iranoe purified in the faith to bear testi mony for the Lord. An exciting revival has been in progress in the ohuroh for three weeks. DEBATING THE MEASURE. "list Hours of tl»© Mitchell Yankton Court Bill. The Holy Horror of th# Northern Combination for th# Yank-ws^ ton Ring. The following are the proceedings in the legislative oounoil over the kill to move the United States oourt from Yank ton to Mitchell. We extraot from the Bismarok Tribune report House bill No. 81, looating the United Stated oourt for the seoond judicial dis trict at Mitohell, oame up under speoial orders on its third reading. Mr. Dodge moved to postpone to Mon day at 3 o'olook. Mr. Smith objected. Mr. Grigsby understood that both sides were ready to vote. Mr. Dodge said the reason given for previous postponements was the absenoe of members who are all still absent, and if the bill was of the importance whioh had been given it in suggestions made here, it was oertainly desirable that all the members Bhould be present, Mr. Smith said the absent gentleman were paited on this bill. He wanted it disposed of to-day Mr. Dodge said there was no pre cedent here yet in the hiBtory of of this bill that gentleman who were paired would remain the same opinion. On roll call, the motion to postpone was rejeoted—ayes, 10 nays, 11. Mr. Dodge moved to insert Huron in stead of Mitohell. Lost. Mr. MoCumber moved to insert Sioux Falls in place of Mitohell. Not seoonded. Mr. Grigsby—We thank the gentle man, but respeotfully decline. Mr. MoCumber moved to insert James town instead of Mitohell. Mr. Dodge seconded the motion, on whioh the roll was oalled and the vote was—ayes, 6 nays, 16. Mr. MoCumber believed if any bill should be considered as to its effeot rather than its merit?, it was this bill, it ought to be open to disoussion and there are matters oonneoted with it whioh demanded explanation. There was a suggestion that this was a bill around whioh centered oombinationa which virtually biooked tho better olass of legislation. He admitted there was a combination .but repudiated the idaa ihat it had biooked legislation. It was not a matter of special interest at the north whether the oourt was moved to Mitohell or staid at Yankton. But it was of im portance that we should stand by our triends who have stood by us. Combi nation he claimed, bad brought every territorial institution in North Dakota a legitimate combination of the solid north with fair minded men against grasping minority in the south. Every bri.ok in the university at Grand Forks was plaoed there by a combination every briok reflaots a combination of the solid north with friends who stood by us. He was proud of north Dakota's reputation in this respect—of the unity of her members—that they were firm and true to friends. He would admit the'/ 1 i'as a strong, sinoere, earnest oom binni/i-n when North Dakota oame in and with friends organized this legislature. He hoped there was not one who would go baok on that combi nation. It is our friends who ask only this matter of the oourts, and our repu tation must be sustained. We made it by standing solid and nevor selling out. If he knew the stand he was taking here would bury his bills fathoms deep he would care not if over their grave stood a monument to. the integrity of north Dakota. The question is between the extreme southeast' corner and the Mitohell section. Ordinarily the merits of the bill would demand our considera tion. But more than that he considered the integrity of north Dakota. They have intimated that there are traitors who will go baok on their pledges. Bat we had np pledges, nothing but the honor he hoped he saw in every face. Had it not been for those gentletnen Who have assisted us there would aot have been a territorial institution out side of Yankton. If we do not now stand by them in what condition shall we be two years' from now, to ask them again to unite with us. On one side here is the integrity of north Dakota and the good will of oentral Dakota on the other side the wishes of the respected gentleman from Yankton. He appeared for the honor of north and oentral Da' kota and hoped that nine votes would be firm, for oredit for north Dakota. Mr. Smith moved a call of the house, whioh was ordered, and Messrs Smith and Collins were reported the only ab sentees without leave. They oame in jast as the call wasfsaipended. Mr. Cain wished to Bay man from Biohland that they of south Dakota did not oome here as enemie? of north Dakota, When he says that the people of north Dakota are combined against south Dakota, he says what is not justified by the facts. No man oan today array the people of either seotion against the other. We have oome to gether to work together for the oreation of two great and friendly states. And so far as the past is concerned, how oould north Dakota have gained all her in stitutions if south Dakota had not voted for them? But we recognized in the past as now that division was coming, as sure as destiny: so that when one terri torial institution was located in the south its like was looatei in the north. The forty-sixth parallel had always been considered as the coming boundary between the two Bister states. He trust ed the remarks of the gentleman would create no aeotional feeling, and thought that whatever the fate of this bill there waB a lasting alliance between the two Dakotas. Mr. Dodge had not understood the gentleman from Biohmond to express any seotional hostility to southern Da kota. We are all here, he said, as re preseutatives of all Dakota. He did not understand the gentleman, however, to refer to what oertain fair minded men did when they were plaoed under the heel not of south Dakota—but of that Yank ton ring whioh existed in the southeast corner of the territory—that they did not take us by the hand and lead as out of bondage. When we oame here in 1880 north Dakota was a misnomer. It was only south Dakota and that at Yankton, These gentlemen who helped us have in turn oome to us for help to relieve them from the same ring whioh ground us down ten years ago. That is all. He bad noted in all the disoussions of this bill, here and outside, the absenoe of referenoe to th merits of the bill. He had not heard sa argument in favor of keeping the United States oourt at Yankton. Yet we ought to disouss the bill on its merits. It is, perhaps, none of our business, exoept that we ought to par our debts of friendship, but if the eop)e of south Dakota,of the seoond udioial district, can be best Berved by lo oating the oourt at Mitohell. we ought to vote for it. If your oonstitutents object to the removal they must have some reason for it but no reason has been jriven. Look at this map. Mitchell is almost in the geographical center of the distrust, while Yaukton is in its south- east corner. Mitohell has every railroad facility that Yaoktoa has. It has equal hotel aocommodatii na. Its court ta uli ties are equal to Xauktoa's. It la acces sible to all the prominent towns, nearer by half to the most important plaoea in tbe district. Where, then, ai.d what is the reason for boldiBg this oourt down in the southeast ootner of tbe district, at Xankton Laying aaide nil but the merits of tbe bill we must vote for it, or else vote against the facts, figures and our own oonviotions of right. He hoped the matter would be decided on its merits. Mr. Cain, referring to tbe year when the gentleman -fijom Stutsman came in, asked wby was iti, if south Dakota was hostile to north Dakota, that Geo. Walsh of Grand Forks, waa that year eleoted president of the oounoil, and wby was it that two years sfterwards Mr. Williams, of Burleigh, wss eleoted speaker? He desired to resent the imputation that tbe people of the south are always op posed to the north. Mr. Dodge said it was not the people of the south, but tbe ring be had referred to, which antagonized the north. As to the chairmanships referred to, he sap posed they were given to the gentlemen named beoause the ring was always ready to take the meat and give as the bone. Mr. MoCumber thought another rea son waa. beoause north Dakota was united on her men and stood by them, and south Dakota oonld not agree. Dr. Collins regretted exceedingly that the gentleman from Biohland had seen fit to take the. oourse he had taken to day. He had not understood that this gentleman or any other was delegated keeper of our oonsoienoes. When men undertake to whip ns into line as has been done here and on the streets of this town of Bismarok, it is time for us to stand up and assert ourselves, and to inquire wherefor and wby this at tempt to coerce us. He was sorry to Bee the oourts of the territory made a tool of combinations and recombinations. What is it that is implied here That tbe members of thiB oertain combination are to follow the lead of oertain other mem bers. He wanted to say that no member or combination could bold him subject to dic tation. So far as relates to north and south Dakota as sections, he had to say tbe bricks of the north Dakota university are not shining beoause of any combina tion, but because of an understanding between north and south Dakota—be cause of a disposition in the south to give tbe north what is its due. -In that oonneotion both the north and south had division in view. In mattters like this now pending his understanding was that tbe movers should state their reasons. He bad not heard of any until a few moments ago—from tbe gentleman from Stutsman. It was beoause of the oourse pursued in oonneotion with this bill that men bad been driven to oppose it. Beoause of the tyrannical, coercive aoton of^its friends, be repeated, men were driven to revolt against diotation aud oppose the bill. In oonolasion he wished to add that he entertained no ill feeling against any member of the conn, oil. Not one of them had any part or knowledge of or countenanced the oourse pursued by those who tried to force this bill. The roll was then called on the pass age of the bill and it was last ayes 8, noes 12. Mr, Smith moved to reconsider and to lay the motion to reconsider on tbe ta ble, Oarried ayes 12 noes 8.
