It IB alleged that the small army of Sioux Falls men who are in Yankton oame oyer here to get out of the mud, and simultaneously with this allegation it may be mentioned that several of the gentlemen have returned home or will return to-morrow. Colonel John H. King, of Rapid Oity, who was in Yankton this morning on bis return from Washington, where be has been (or some time laboring in tbe in terest of the Bioux reseivation bill in oongrees, was seen by a reporter and interrogated as to the probable length of time wbiob will be required in scouring tbe written oonsent of the Indians to the agreement whioh will make over a por tion of tbe Sioux reservation to tbe whites for settlement. Mr. King is of tbe opimen that if the government seleots men who are familiar with the Indians, to solicit their signatures, the work can be aooomplisbed within ninety days from tbe time of starting. His work in Washington was arduous but be is more than repaid by tbe result, Colonel King speaks earnestly in behalf of Delegate Oifford's industry ana ef foottveness.

The horses likewise did not peroeive it, and when horse and carriage collided with the mound, the oarriage oame oat seoond best. None of tbe oooupants of the oar riage were injured in tbe least, but the vehiole itself lies in the mud, a oonglom eration of fraotured spokes, bent tiree and mod. The obstruction whioh oansed tbis mishap beloDga to the oity, the street commissioner having ac cepted it to be used as filling as soon as the weather will permit. So the doctor is not to blame for its presenoe in the street.

A Proposition lo Abolish Ills Office— The Views or a Taxpayer. To tbe Press A Dakotaian: Among otber citizens I was present at tbe ooanoil meeting last night, and was much interested in tbe proceedings, and was also glad to notioo the large number of interested taxpayers gathered there to see and hear tbo deliberations of our city law makers. 'Ibis is oommendable for it evinoes a lively interest on tbe part of onr citizens in tbe affairs of oar oity. Of oonrse every oitizen desires to see oar oity prosper. To tbat end they are willing to meet and cheerfully pay all taxeB essential to oar permanent wUA, UUIUnllt tt ""I willing to be generous in this direotion, they at the same time demand at the hands of onr disbursing officers a just discrimination between profligacy and a reasonable eoonomy in the expenditore of the people's money. and prosperity. While they are The resolution offered by Alderman Branch to abolish the office ol street commissioner, I am constrained to be lieve is move on the right direotion and in furtherance of reasonable eoonomy. Oar street commissioner is drawing about the $600 a year from our city treasury simply as a boes or overseer. You soaroely ever see him at work layiDg cross walks or shoveling gravel, but he assumes the duties of tbe committee on grades, streets and alleys, and bosses the work instead of doing it, or helping to do it. The street com missioner's bill for April, as I heard it read last night, amounted to about $140, or a little over. Ol this snm probably half went to the street commissioner for his servioeB, when tbe work oould all have been done that WBB done just as well without him at a saving of sixty dollars or thereabouts to the oity, This, I think, is all wrong. If the oity wants a oross walk laid, let tbe proper oommit tee hire a man to do it, and one of the oommittee boss the job himself, instead of hiring a man to do it at the expense of the tax payers. The tax payers have a right to demand this in tbe interest of reasonable economy. And it yoa mast have a street commissioner, then let a man be ap pointed who will take off his coat and work and let the oommittee on grades streets and alleys do the bossing. I do not write this beoauBe I have any ob jection to the present street oommis sioner personally, forT have none. If he oan draw his two dollars per day the year round as a boss, he would be a fool not to do it and I don't blame him for wanting to hold on to suoh a soft snap, The city oouncil, however, have no rigbt to tax the people to pay an offloer who is a mere sineoore and therefore the tax payers demand that tbe offioe be abol ished. TAXPAYER. SUPREME COURT. Opening of the Hay Term—Tlie First Day's Proceedings—Those In Atten dance. The May term of tbe supreme oourt of Dakota territory began at 10 a. m. to day in this oity.
