Three of Peter Steffio's teams have in dulged in th novelty of running away within one wcfck, and yet Mr. Sieffin has not bad .a spoke or a halter Btrap to pay for. The members and supporters of Christ eharob are requested by the reotor to be present at the first quarterly oongregra tiouul meeting to-nigbt at 7.30 to bear reports from the several ohuroli activities. Valin's tloughs are now a favorite re tortfor dock hunters trom Yankton, Parker, (Jentreville and other neighbor ing points. Several parties are in camp tlieie and are making it lively for fea tured game. While Yankton is basking IU the warmth ot ppring the oitiis of the north ernplains are yet buried in sno». Huron Bsdfifld ocd Aberdeen are yet enjoying good sleighing and at Oakes the snow is several feet deep. Due spring term of the United States oourt opens in this oity to-morrow fore BOOD, and this evening a large number of jurors and witnesses may be expeoted to arrive in this oity. They will be on band in time to a- siqt in he demonstra tions wbioh will follow the eleotlon. The remaius of Mrs. A. M. Dawson were interred this afternoon, the funeral taking place from the Ouhgregational obarob. There was a large attendance of mourniug people und deep siuoeritj in tbe expressions of giief over the death of this estimable lady. B=v. Dr. Ward said to-day that nine teen years ago the first funeial he ever attended in Yankton occurred—thut oi the son of Mrs. Dawson, who waB EASTER DAY. woueru Celebration of tbe Avraken '•K Bsy Arter a Mcason or Christian Halet. Nature smiled upon creation yester and in so doing encouraged the Psopie of Yankton to engage generally to the joys of Easter day. After six *eeitH of vigorous devotion to tbe eel wnposed restrictions of lent, there is •"ore or less rejoioing that soolal inter course is onoe more permissable. Lent 88'dom been more properly indulged l,n by the good people o! Yankton Bring the season juBt closed Clear oon Mleooes are more numerous, and lots of nf°»l aHRkeP more soundly, all beaause «the lenten season. In Yankton's churches yesterday ser Tioes peouliar to Easter day were held, I 'rom parts of the oity the popu, sathered to attend them. To make •speoial mention of the exeroises of each afoh would be superfluous, bat that serrioes were interesting to the ad' Wants of all oreeds was denoted by the r°ogs whioh were seen going home .e' the benediationB. Beside the ^Qrah aeivjcea there were suoh inter ed t? -the bestowal of oolor ,h e®J« The ®~*Way anj yesterday their parohoses by the members of their »*Uies.

Oariat osaroh was the scene of three large E-istir gatLerings yesterday— morning,afternoon and evening. The oharoh inttrior was half buried in floral deoorations and presented a scene of ex quisite beauty aminated by tbe presence of throngs of worshippers. Reotor Bonn oonduoted the.services and preached ap propriate sermons. In the afternoon there was infant baptism, many aon didates being presented for the holy rite. The organ performance.of O, A. Douglas, of Minneapolis, afforded great satisfaction to those musioally inolined and under hiB artistio touohes tbe new organ gave forth its choicest melody. Xbe ohoir presented the beautiful musio of Easter day ,with exquisite effect and .the oooasiou was throughout a glad festival of holy rejoioing. At the irst Methodist church yester day the aer-ioea were very interesting. The morning hour was filled up by the oalling of tbe roll of oburoh mem bership,-and responses wers given by •boat three-fourths of those whose names appear on the books. Tbe ordinanoe of baptism was administered Mid the uaual form of reoeption of mszz bers oarried out. Th# evening was given to the Sabbath Bohool and tbe ex anises "onsiated of reoitationB and songs by the young people. The classes were «!led by the superintendent, J. H. Beaver, and responded by sending a representative forward with their offer fg. The deoorations were neat and tnaoh admired, especially the orosa and hlies whioh were in the center of the platform. It was a good day for the Methodist church. PS _,V tW# 1 a le't its mark in Yankton, and the good derived will nov huve wholly disappeared when another Easter day is at hand. CHRIST cnciicn OHSEttVANCEB. from tbe earliest days of the chnron Christmas and Easter have been made prominent as speoial festivals. They stand out brighter than otner days be onuse they are reached as climaxes of advent and lent. Thns Easter is a double red letter day having gone through the denial and preparation during the forty days of lent. Ohrist oburoh was elaborately deoora ted with bright banners and beautiful flowers. ItB arches resounded with EaBt. hallolnjabs and hoBsnnas. The oongre. gation with bright faces and reverent hearts teemed fully in accord with the spirit of tbe day. The ohoir was in its best mood. The atbem "Ohrist is Risen" is itself a masterpieoe, The Te Deum, al ways glorious, and the entire mnsioal programme in fact, though quite elab orate was exceedingly weil rendered. Muoh of its effectiveness was due to the organist, who though laboring under many disadvan ages was superior to them all. Tbe reotor seemed to be im bued with the same happy spirit that prevaded all else. The ohief thought of the sermon was (he reBurreotion of tbe boay. If God oan bring the bright flower from the mould of the earth and the albatross from the senseless shell, and the radiant butterfly from the loath some oatrrpillar oan he not transform us who are superior to all thees to beings or trasoendant splendor? If seed buried two thousand years in the attia tomb should blossom iuto bluebells, and gar den peas found in the Egyptian tomb, buried three thousand years, spring up with fresh life cannot Goet take these bodies of ours though bnried ten thous years and revinfy them? They say "death ends all." But what is death? At 3 p. m, was a Sunday sohool cele bration The smaller children marohed into tbe church to a processional hymn, each class bearing its banner. Appropriate addresses were made by the reotor to eaoh class as it presented its offerings, the subject of each address being taken from the name and motto of tbe class. At this service the saorament of baptism waB administered. After this aervioe Easter eggs were distributed among the scholars. At night a large congrega tion listened td a sermon on the "Prog ress of Christianity." Altogether the day passed off in a very happy and sat isfactory manner. SCOOPED! Business Ticket Not a Man.

The republican central committee convened at Aberdeen at four o'olook Friday afternoon, Chairman Allen pre siding, for the purpose of fixing dales and plaoes for the two territorial conven tions to be held this year. The session of the oommittee was.a long one, continu ing until two o'olook Saturday morning. Thirty-two of the thirty-five members of the oommittee were represented in person or by proxy, fifteen proxies being voted during tbe session The committee first voted upon a lo cation for the convention to select dele gates to the national presidential con vention at Ohioago and after a brief cot test Jamestown oarried off the honors.

The oommittee then proceeded to wrestle with the apportionment problem and after along and heated contest resolution was adopted whioh provided for representation in the two conventions of one delegate for every two hundred vote* (or major fraotion thereof) oast at the congressional eleotion of 1886, both the republican and demooratio votes being made the basis of the apportion ment. The old rule of allowing eaoh county a delegate at large was done away with. This closed the work of the committee and at two o'clock Saturday morning an adjournment was effeoted. The oalls will be promulgated in a few days by Chairman Allen. THE DEMOCRATS, There was a meeting of the demooratio oentral oommittee at Bismarok Friday afternoon, at wbioh a time and plaoe were agreed upon for tbe demooratio con vention to select delegates to tbe presi dential. convention at St. Louis.

Although tbe chairman was quite positive that tbe resolution had been adopted, Mr. Day's motion was entertained, and tbe resolu tion was enthusiastically adopted. The apportionment of representation in the oonvention was made upon the basis of one delegate for every 200 votes or major fraction thereof oast for M. R. Day in the congressional eleotlon of 1886.

Wednesday, May 16, was selected (s the date ot this convention. The oceiest for the congressional con vention was long and oloae, the oholoe being narrowed down to Watertown and Deadwood very early in the struggle. Watertown was tLere in force and Sol Star and Frank Washabaugh were present from Deadwood. The Black Hills representatives promised for the aooommodation of delegates a speoial train to start from any point in Dakota whioh might be designated by the cen tral committee and to run through to Whitewood as an independent tram. The fare promised was one cent per mile go ing and returning. By this arrange ment delegates oonld make the round trip for about twenty dollars and view tbe Hills country and all its mysteries BO oheuply that the offer was a reel tempta tion. After a long struggle the Black Hilla foroes gave signs of weakening and a disposition to throw the convention into the hands of Aberdeen. Some of their south Dakota allies then deserted them and went to Watertown and on the nineteenth ballot Watertown was select ed by a majority of two The following are tbe several ballots: r• Calls lillies.oarno.'

The telegraph wires between Elk Point and Sionx Oity are down, and no oommnnioation by wire from Sioux Oity as to the state of the river at that point in available. Tbe gorge now existing near Elk Point, is thought to be iooated in a position similar to that of 1881, but the fact that the ioe whioh will desoend from up river is very muoh deoayed, pre cludes a possibility of so extended a season of high water at any point as then ooourred. There is a large volume of water, and it is full of heavy ioe, in the upper river. On Friday the Oheyenne river opened with a big flood and Saturday the ioe was gorging at Pierre. Unless held by gorges heavy floods from above may be expeoted early this week. Probably by to-morrow the adyanoe of the rising water will reaah this point. If the gorge below holds nntil tbe arrival of the up per floods there will be serious trouble on the bottoms below Yankton. The Jim is not flooding very heavy yet, but it will ran high when the snow melts. eKUHONALi. E, D. Disbrow, of Aloester, Iowa, is in the oity. E. C-. Kennedy, of Parker, was ID Yankton yesterday.

The ioe in the Missouri gorged some where down tbe river from Elk Point yeeterdty end to-dtty the people in por tions ol Elk Point are etepping from tbe second story window? of their bouses into "boats to be taken to places where it is not so wet. Tbe river overflowed its banks beluw Elk Point yesterday torenoon, and before dark it bad covered the entire bottom as far np the river as Burbank. All through the night It continued rising, and this morning's advices were to the effeot that frcm four to six feet ot water oovered the town site of Elk Point. The people of that burg are moving out in boats and exoite ment prevails, although no lives had been lost and no damage had resulted from floating ioe up to 2 p. m. This rise in the river has stopped all railway operations between Yankton and Sionx Oity over tbe Milwaukee road, and two trains are tied up in this oity. Conductor Jackson's passenger train suooeeded in getting to Elk Point this morning, and people, who were coming this way were taken in boats from tbe town to the train. Railroaders believe that about eight miles of traok is gone between Elk Point and Sioux City, and there is danger that more damage will be done.
