Under demooratio administration the railroads of Dakota have paid nothing in taxes, while the farmers have paid just as mnoh as they ever did. Under demooratio administration the treasury is bankrupt. This never happened under republican administration. Why does not Mr. Ohuroh oolleot the railroad tax? It is announced ty the Springfield Times that Major Kinney, agent of the Tanbtou Indians and inventor of im possible blizzard horrors, has returned to the agency. He did not retnrn to the territory by the same ronte which took him out and there was no aeeking of newspaper reporters on the home run. He reached his domain in a quiet and unos tentatious way, via Marion Junction, Tripp and Armour, and sought seclusion rather than notoriety during the trip. There is a vast difference between the major going out and the major coming in. The decline of the saloon has been rapid sinoe the supreme court of Dako ta rnled in favor of the looal option law. From many oities in Dakota oomes in formation of the closing of saloons out of respeot for the law whioh the highest tribunal declares a valid enaotment. There are very c,few states whioh wouio. exhibit suoh a quiet and general ac quiescence in a sumptuary law as is manifested here in the territory of Da kota. Having carried the case to the oonrt of last resort and satisfied them aelves that the law is against them, sa loon keepers are yielding graoeiully to the inevitable and closing their places of business in good faith. The Omaha Bee gives the true in wardness of the local contest against the bonds proposed to be issued in aid of the Omaha & Yankton railroad. It says: Last Saturday's meeting of the ooun ty commissioners was attended ohiefiy by the paving, grading, sewer and sweeping contractors, who appeared to be very anxious that the proposition for the Xankton road should be modified in some way. The true inwardness of that oall on the commissioners was, however, a desire on the part of these contractors to have the special oounty eleotion post poned until after the day of the sewer bond election. If this railroad project cannot be carried out without combining with contractors and boodlers, it had better be abandoned altogether. It is high time that Omaha should break up the corrupt contractors' ring whioh man ipulated the last legislature to the detriment of this dity, haB exerted suoh a baneful influenoe npon the city coun cil and is trying its level beBt to oontrol the county board. At yesterday's meet ing of the commissioners the some gang was present and listened with satisfac tion to the report against calling the eleotion. In Omaha there appears to be a com bination whioh is preying npon thepub lic. If it sucoesds in preventing Omaha from seonring the trade of this seotion it will give to all its future a fatal stroke This is Omaha's opportunity In twelve months the opportunity will have passed out of reach. By a party vote ths demooratio mem bers of the house committee on terri tories have decided in favor of the Springer omnibus bill. This is a bill to authorize the territories of Dakota, Mon tana, Washington and New Msxioo in hold constitutional conventions and adopt state constitutions. Congress re serves to itself the right to aooept these constitutions and adopt enabling aots at a later period. It may accept the Da kota constitution and rejeot al the rest. It may rejeot the Dako ta constitution and aooept all the rest. It may aooept all the constitutions or may rejeot them all. So the omnibus bill is in no Bense a bill to permit the territories named to enter theiinion as states, future favorable aotion depends upon the future moods of oongress. For instance the demooratio house may find itsslf at the oritioal moment in a mood to aooept ths eonstitations of the demo oratio territories and rejeot the oonstitu tion of the republican territory. Stranger things than this hare happened The whole soheme is trading proposition beneath the dignity of a oongress. of the United States and on a par only with the dignity of Springer. It is abont his calibre. WitLsin the territories which Ur. Springer uses for his trafficking purposes there may be found sentiments adverse to the whole soheme. New Mexjoo does not want admission to tho anion. It is unprepared for the respon sibilities of statehood. Dakota wants admission as two states end will combat to the last ballot of its intelligent peo pie any other proposition. So tha omni bos bill fills the wishes oi only the ten! tories of Montana and Washington. It is not probable that the bill will ever become a law, though the favorable re renders port of the hoaae oommittee a result possible. snoh The Fargo Argus gives ourrenoy to a proposition whioh has for Borne time lain dormant in the minds of the thinking men of Dakota—a proposition in behalf of the election by the people of the va rious officials now appointed by the Gov ernor of the territory. By permission of the legislature an alien executive—an executive sent in from the politioal slums of the states—is given authority to name the various territorial offioiala, subjeot to confirmation by the legislative oouncil. That the ooanoil seldom fails to confirm the ohoioe of the executive is a painful historical faot. The oounoil usually gets itself into suoh a position that it is not a free politioal or moral agent in the transaction and thinks it is compelled to bow to the will of the ex ecutive. The proposition now made is to eleot a legislature whioh will take from the governor the power of appoint ment and plaoe that power in the hands of the people—a legislature which will pass laws providing for the election of the various oSScials now appointed under mistaken idea that the organio aot specifies that they shall be appointed. This was the old time method, under the same orgahio aot, and it worked well. So far as oar territorial form of government will permit the people of Da kota should move in behalf of^self gov ernment and there is no question that they can add largely to their prerogatives through the medium of a well disposed legislature. It will be advantageous, therefore, to eleot a legislature with the understanding that it is expected to clip the winga of our imported exeoutiye. it oan, if it will, leave him with little more than nominal power. It oan make of him a governmental figure head and noth ing more. The people owe it to them selves to accomplish this mnoh in their own behalf. They hare had quite enough of disgraoefnl trading and incompetent appointees. North and south Dakota oan unite upon this proposition and oarry their purposes at the November StoutiGu, The plan by whioh the officials now appointed could be rendered elective without any question under the organio act, or any possible legal olash, is to divide the territory into two districts and, by legislative enactment, make the territorial offioers dietriot officers. The territory is so large that two sets of offi cials are neoeBsary and in faot some of the positions are now duplioated by ter ritorial law. BILL SPRiftGER. •Some Pointers to those of Hla Consti tuency who do not Want Htm Be JElecteO, Chicago Inter Ooean Dakota wants division and admiBion or nothing. Be lieving fully that this position is fair and just, it demands no more and oac not accept less. Oh this proposition there has always been and is now sub stantial unanimity among the people of this greatestof all our western territories. All olasses and all politioal parties in Dakota are of one mind-on this subjeot. The press, leading oitizsns, associations, conventions, jadioial and legislative, have without regard to affiliations politi oal or otherwise, repeatedly and warmly pronounoed for division and admission. Why should Congressman Springer taks npon himself the task to personally violently antagonize the admission of Dakota contrary to the known wishes of the people of the territory 1 Mr. Springer has for some terms misrepre sen ted tho demooratio party in the thirteenth (Springfield) congressional diBtriot of Illinois in the United States oongress It is understood that he will again be a oandidate for re nomination, and, if suooessfnl there then for re-election, this year. It is also reported that a strong opposition baa developed against him among a consti tuency noted for their loyalty and stead fastness to Jeffersonian principles and Jaoluonian dootrines. Oan it be that the shade of Banker Caldwell or DeWitt Smith in Sangamon oounty and the pro nounoed feeling down in Christian oonn ty hare indueed Mr. Springer to beoome so suddenly and violently pro-adminis tration aa to oppose the division of Da kota at any and all hazards? Does he believe saoh exoessive zeal will bring him back his endangered district on the one hand and plaoe him in an advanta geous administration position on the other It may be that this scheme is part of a trade made when the chair manships of tha several house oommit tees were parcelled out in the beginning of the year. The disposition has crop ped eut from time to time not to admit Dakota at all if that were possible in the te.9th of public sentiment if admitted at all, to have the enabling aot go into effect ao that Dakota would have no voice in the ooming presidential eleo tion or to secure the admission of New Mexioo or some other territory to offset Dakota in the electoral rote and in the United States senate and under any and all oiroamstances to endeavor to admit Dakota, as one state, and to use every known parliamentary or other means to keep out the division and ad mission project. The people of Dakota will not be sat isfied with anything short of admission as two states. They have the population and.the property and the pluck to make of these great separate commonwealths. It is of no sort ot oonsequenee to them or to the nation what names are given the new slates, so that ttiey are proper names. To quibble over this is strain ing at a gnat and swallowing a ^ajnsL The great majority of the people of this nation know that Dakota's residents are permanent residents its property is legitimate and large ita people intelli gent and eapable of self government and that all ita institutions are ready to be transformed from territorial into state institutions. Mr. Bpringer has been long enongh on the oommittee on territories to know these facts. Be served •if-'- \--'J k»SS& nHO on that oommittee during all of the forty-ninth congress, and tho fiftieth oongress sees him its ohairmsn. He is not unaware of public opinion, When he talks or in any way advocates admis sion without division next year, he is certainly aware that the people ot this sonntry are misrepresented by him. If he is oarrying out instructions from headquarter*, it does not make any greater man of him, and is in party poli tics very short sighted policy, Mr Springer should be taught a lesson, and all the indications are that when the time oomes he will be givan an entire oonrse of instructions by an able bodied and incensed constituency in oentral Illinois. The minority report of the oommittee on the division and admission of Dakota is a pointer for Mr. Springer's opponents. Tne Coming Comet.
