Preston, of Mitohell, baa re turned to Washington, where ho did some good work in behalf of the state. He is hopeful that oongr83 will take favorable action on pending measures. Mr. Springer told Mr. PreatoD that he had oqme to the conclusion that Dakota desired division and he should not ser iously opntend longer upon that poipt, bat he thought that a vote of a majority of all the'people of the territory however should be had. The senate, on the con trary, oppoEei the proposition for a vote and this constituted one point of differ ence. Mr. Springer said he would insist on a reiooation of the temporary capital and would not posh the proposition for the admission of New Mexioo. Relative to Mr. Preston's impressions the Mitohell Republican says farther: Preston sizes np the situation about like this, that Springer will oonoede muoh from the omnibus bill as pabsed the house. The senate will desire no vote whatever on division, and that New Mexico ehall be excluded. There is a strong feeling on the part of some of the older members of the senate tu anoept nothing from Springer or the democrats and that what is done for Dakota shall be from a partisan repnblioan stand point, but there is a strong desire on the part of many of the western senators to compromise the matter and secnre ad mission this session AH of the Dakota delegation at Washington are doing all they can to seonre a fair compromise from the oonterenoe oommittee, and thus provide for Dakota's admission this ses sion, and to that end both be and Ment zer have and will continue to labor. Dakota's legislature seemB to have forgotten that it oan deprive Governor Churoh of all power to do barm. It oan take from him all appointments and then he will be no more in influence than an ordinary offioe holding individ ual. He has held his powerful sway over the peoplo through the labors of his appointees and it has been demon strated that unless an appointee van loyal to him perse nally he speedily found himself oat in the cold. A marked il lustration of his requirements in this direolion was furnished in the oase of the board of trustees of the Yankton in sane asylum, who rtfased to do his bidding and with the assistance of the oourt were removed from office. He demanded of his appointees that they oarry the oinooses and rule the conven tions, either by fair or foul means. iSy these processes he gained a dangerous asctudenoy in Dakota end finally be osme bo pnffed up with pride and the things he took into his stomaoh that he imagined himself superior to a legisla ture. He has enoountered a rebuke in the solid opposition of that body, whioh posaeisss the power to deprive him of future opportunity for evil. The nominations of Thompson, of South Carolina, to be oivil service com missioner vice Edgerton, removed, and Stephens, of Illinois, to*be justioe of the supreme court of the district of Colum bia, will not be confirmed. Obj°otion is madeto Thompson on personal as well as general grounds. In the first place be is not considered a fit man for the po sition to which he has been nominated. He was elected governor of South Caro lina at a time when there was wholesale intimidation of colored and white repub lican voters, and high banded frauds at the ballot boxes. He is not regarded in any sense as a oivil service reformer, and those who have studied his politloal eareer are amused that the president, who pretends to be a oivil servioe re former, should appoint him to a position of this kind. South Carolina republi cans have asked the senate to withhold action till they oan be heard. The seoretary of the navy has sent to the senate an answer to the resolution of Seoator Chandler as to the expendi tcre of. funds for repairs and oonstruo tion the first six months of the fisoal year. The'object of Chandler's resolu tion was to make it olear that the ap propriations for this purpose fcr the entire fiscal year were neatly exhausted in the first six months, and that they were expended for campaign purposes. The answer seems to sustain this theory. At all eveuts, it shows that the disburse ments in the navy yards adjacent to the close states inoieosed very rapidly shortly before the eleotion and that the amounts expended diminished quite as rapidly immediately after the eleotion. Secretary MoOormaok openly de nounces Governor Churoh and says the. legislature will be justified in resorting to the moat extreme measures. Mar shal Maratta will not aooord the gover nor a nod of recognition and the federal judges look askance at b.'m. His demo oratfc official associates are quite gen erally deserting and even his own.ap pointees oonoede that he is going wrong. Fast trains and all trains not absolute ly necessary are to be dropped in the state of Iowa and the poorest servioe furnished. This will occur because the fatate of Iowa ia bearing down hard on the railroads. *•«. 7-/ v- !'f tmf' The nomination ol Norman P. Cole man to be seoretary of agriculture was taken up in executive session of the senate Tuesday and referred to the oommittea on agrioalture. It was ex peoted that this-nomination would be promptly confirmed, but there are ob jections to it that may yet defeat con firmation. Saits on appeal have been filed in the United States supreme oourt from the supreme of Dakota in the oase of John E. Adams against the commissioners of Brown county, Dakota, This is a salt to prevent the removal of the county seat from Oolumbia to Aberdeen in pursuance of an eleotion held in Joly, 1887. In on executive session of-the senate motion to remove the injunction of sec recy from the prooeedtngB in connection with the consideration of the British extradition treaty prevailed, and the reoord of the proceedings, covering a period of two or three years, will be fur nished the press. Those who furnish news from Indian apolis announce that General Harrison has oompleted his cabinet and is now oonstrnoting his inaugural message. They have not jet ascertained the con tents of the message.

FLAhDRAU INDIANS, Interesting Facts About Uncle Sam's Wards Near £'landrau, Dak. Flandran, Dak Feb. 10 -Settled in this immediate vicinity are about 60 families of Indians of different tribes. Bjing "on hand" they located and ob tained patent in tho regular way to some of the choicest laod in the oountry —that on the fertile Sioux bottoms. They ate settling down to work in a fash ion and may of them till small patches of land, though not enough, as yet to make them sell-supporting. In the post, Unole Sam has provided houses for them, given them horses and oattle and maintained a school for the ohildren. Their land patbnts contain a clause pro hibiting them from disposing of their land in 17 years. Some of them dispose of their land as soon as the limitation expires. The sohool is taught by Rev. H. Locke, a retitej Methodist minister They have two native preaobers, one a Presbyterian and the other an Episco palian, each haying a church building in or near town. Services are held in the native language, with native organ ist and oboirs. This year the oommon father will issue a lot of mowers and other farm machin ery, provide fencing and build twenty bains for their use. Bev. John Eastman, the native Presbyttrian minister, is in Washington this winter endeavoring to seoare an ap propriation for a larger and better sohool building, end to secure an allotment oi land for this branch in the soon to be opened reservation. Mr. Eastman's wife, by the way, is a daughter of David Faribault, the founder of the oity of that name. As a rale the male portion of this band has taken kindly to the "white olothes" furnished by the government. The older ones prefer mocoasini to boots, and the usual blanket over the head ib worn by the squaws. They take great interest in sending their children to sohool—the ones located on the agenoies west of the Missouri being the favorites, but the Hampton institution gets a good many pupils. They bold their own exeroises on Christmas, New fear and Fourth of July, and seem to understand and enjoy these exeroises. They are great athletes, and the great Amerioon game seems to be a favorite with the young men. An effort will be made to put an alUndian club on the road during the summer monthB. There are but few notable obaraoters among them. Hannah Weston is said to be 112 years old.

San Francisoo Grocer: One of the largrst millers in the United States, C. A. PillBbury, is oredited with asserting that millers do not dsmpen their wheat Obfore grinding it. This is oorreot ol some millers, but not of all, and the rea son is not attributable to differences in millers but to differences in wheat. Host of the California wheat groond in this state is moistened, because it is oeoesfary to do so. On the other band, Oregon wheat will not stand dampening, as it oontains enough water without this treatment. On this aocount local millers prefer California wheat, as they osn add the neeessary water for nothing, which they have to pay for in the Oregon artiole. When shipped abroad or stored for months at tidewater, there is less differ ence, as wheat whioh is not moist will become so in a damp atmosphere. Oaliforuia wheat when afloat gains 2 to 3 per cent from abiiorbtion of moisture. A oertain percentage'of water in wheat is essential to render it fit for grinding, and the moisture has to be either found in the grain or applied artificially there to.

AN EXTRA SESSION, General Belief That On« IVill he Called IIj President Harrison. Washington correspondence Omaha Bee: It is the almost cnanimoua belief of the republicans in the house that President Harrison will oall an extra session of the fifty-first congress for tariff legislation and the edmission of new states. A majority believe that the extra session will oonvene in April. The others think it will oome together about the first of November. The latter date is regarded sb the most probable one by Major IMcKiney, of Ohio, who appears to be in the lead for the speakership. Representative Posey, of Indiana, who has just come from biB home to soooeed Governor Hovey, and is supposed to know something of General Harrison's feelingB on the snbjeot, said to-day that be almost knew that there would be an extra session oalled. He ia not the cn'y one recently from Indiana, however, who is impressed with tbe idea that a oalled session is oertain. Tbe only argument, that has been made against it is that to have oongress in session during the first months of bis term would be a son'roe of annoyaooe to tbe new president on as count of tbe cfiioe seekers. Yet it is oonce^ed on every band that it will be better to htvj men in oongress seeking the appointments rather than their con stituents. But it is understood that General Harrison himself feels that tho neoossity of an immediate or ganization of the house is too pressing to be overbalanced by any consideration of mere inoonvenienoe. He is said to feel that the moBt important thing for the republicans now is to hold the two houses of oongress, and to olear away all the perplexing matters of legislation that are pressing for consideration early in bis term, that they may not drag on throughout his admisiration to em harass it, nor remain to oomphoate matters as tbe next eleotion approaches. Besides this, a largo majority of the republicans in both houses of Gongress are convinoed that a special BeBeion is neoeesary to the well being of the party, and they are urging upon the president that be oall them together about April. Very little, if any, legislation can be accomplished before tbe olose of this session, and then will oome the next oongress with heavy responsibilities and so Bmall and ao un certain a majority that during the time between tbe 4th of Maroh and the first week in Deaember it might be wiped out, so tbat tbe republicans oould not organize the house at all. But even if this should not occur, there would re main for the repnblioan oongress, with bardly a working majority, a great deal "f important legislation that must be disposed of in some way, besides being 'embarrassed by many contested eleotion cases, oyer whioh there will be bard fighting and probably some filibustering, but to start with, they are threatened with a hard fight over tbe adoption of now rnles. It ia important, if the repub lican boose is to do anything daring the next two years, that the rules would be amended so bb to extend tbe powers of the majority. A TRIO OF MILLIONAIRES. And Vet Hfhpy Looked Hopelessly and Utterly Unhappy, New York correspondence of the Philadelphia Press: A day or two ago I was in Delmonioo's when the youngest of the Astors entered and took bis lunoheon. His solemnity and sadness of mem was striking. He kept his eyes fixed religiously on the ground ss he walked aoross tbe osfe, celeoted a distant and seoluded table, turned his back np on the people and ate with an air of gentle and mournful self-abnegation. He is the heir of a hundred or two of millions, and is probably the most de sirable parti in New York. No one seemed to know him, and tbe waiter who attended to bis wants was quite careless and indifferent. Had he known that it was the beir of tbe Astors that he was waiting npon he would probab ly have jumped five feet in the air with alacrity. Before this particular ABtor had finished his luncheon his cousin, William Waldorf Astor, also drifted in and sat down near the door. His fao* had the same preternaturally grave and solomn look. I do not suppose that the ex-minister to Italy iB more than thirty five or thirty-six years of age. and he has a magnificent phyBique but the general effeot after a hasty look at biB face is that of a man who has had a stormy life and is neanng his forty-eighth or forty-ninth year. He, too, was exceed ingly simple in the manner of fare. He drank a cup of tea with bis luncheon, and when he had finished he took an old book from the pooket of his overooat and sat reading it quietly for half an hour. Then he paid hiB bill, got np and drifted out. Neither of the two Astors knew of tbe other's presence. Probably the two men together will eventually represent $200,000,000. I followed Mr. Astor out of the plaoe, and as we stopped at the oorner to allow a oar to pass, he stepped hastily past me and made a profound bow to a man aoross the street, The man nodded in return. It was a greeting between father and eon, but it might have been the salutation of one ambassador to another. Tbe portly form of tbe elder Astor was olad in blaok. His face was as heavily seamed as that of a tragedian, and he walked with a slow and ponder ous tread. There was a heavy band of orepe on his hat. H^ passed mourn fully along the street and strode slowly up toward his house at Fifth avenae and Thirty third street. There are very few families in tbe world whose wealth is more substantial, solid and ample than tbat of the Astors, and yet I do not think tbat I have ever seen tbree men who looked more hope lessly end Utterly unhappy than tbe trio of millionaires tbat day. It seemed to show with a good deal of foroe tbat wealth does not always oarry happiness with it. A .Dakota Plague. Minneapolis Journal: Tbe showing of the new reform sohool at Plankinton, Dak., is good or bad, according to tbe sense in whioh it is taken. For several months after tbe completion of the sohool it had no inmates whatever. Binoe last November it has had bat two, and one of these was taken in as a mat ter of oharity. This speaks volumes for the good behsvior of the youth ol Da kota, Bat was tbe game worth her candle? The building oost $33,000, and it has so itoAtAAi far oost $17,000 for running expenses. All this to accommodate one negro boy I it iB evident that Dakota was not old nor wioked enough to need a reform school. That she possesses suoh a supeiiluous institution may doubtless be laid to the foolish and expensive rivalry between north and south Dako ta. North Dakota gets a public institu tion and South Dakota must straight way have another, to make the thing even, and "darn the expense 1" Tbe people of the territory have to bear tbe burden of the really unnecessary taxa tion thereby imposed. But that is an old story. II Dakota bad been given division and admission these extravaganoes would not bave been permitted. Eaob 3tats would then bear its own expenses and would be more oarefui not to indalge in a needless waste of money. Pablio in stitutions would have to wait until there waB really some need of them. Tbis is also an old story. But bear tbe taxpayers groan! That will also be an old story if prarent methods are kept np.
