Patience IANK10N, I ./ There is throughout Dakota very gen eral regard for Seoretary MoOormaok and many expressions of that regard have been made in a public and private way. His retirement along with the retirement of a governor as obnoxious as MoOormaok is popular is the for tnne of politics, against which no politician oan reasonably protest. Seoretary Teller, tbe. predecessor of the present democratic inoumbent, was fully as popular with the people as Mr. Mo Oormaok is, yet he was made to walk the plank and be did it without a mur mur, The fortune of politics relegated him to private life and he retired with graceful aoqnieseenoe in the partisan ediot. Seoretary MoOormaok is no bet ter politically or individually than bis predeoessor and tbe same fate whioh gave him plaoe now brings bis sucessor Into the sphere of offioial usefulness. He oan view with self gratification the oontrast between himself and Governor Churoh as they retire from 'offioe. By his oonduot as an offioer Seoretary Mo Oormaok has earned the lasting esteem of the people of both political parties. By bis oonduot as an offioer Governor Ohugph has earned the lasting disfavor of the people of both politioal parties It pays to be daoent and Seoretary Mo Oormaok will realiz) this more and more as the fatare unrolls its soroll. R. W. Wheelook, editor of the Mitch ell Republican, is an acknowledged can didate for one of tbe places in the Mitoh' ell land offioa. Aside from personal merit and ability possessed in a large de gree by Mr. Wheelook he is entitled to this recognition of success from a pure ly politioal standpoint. There is no man witbin the jarisdiotion of tbe Mitchell land offioe wbo has done and is doing more for the oause of republican ism than Mr. Wheelook He is oon daoting with aoknovledged effeat daily newspaper which does not pay its running expenses and through tbis medium is oootinially contributing to tbe saooess of tbe party and the men whom the party puts forward as its ohampions at the polls. Same compen sation is surely dui bim for tbis and tbe proper plaos from which to draw this compensation is a party souroe. Mr. Wheelook is well qnalifisd for tbe dutieB of tbe position and is the ohoioe of considerable m»j rity of the people of tbe distriot. Thus the plaoe Is thrice earned by bim. From tbe batch of nominations sent to the senate Tuesday by President Har rison those of A. O. Mellette and L. Rohardton, for governor and seoretary of Dakota, were selected for immediate confirmation and they were confirmed the next day. It was annonnoad, further, that there gentlemen would reoeive their commies ions Wednesday. If the programme was carried out Governor Mellette oan take the oath of offioe by Saturday and the wae't will end the nefarious official oareer of oarpet bagger Ohurob. The senate has been unusually prompt in this matter beoause of a ne cessity lor a obange in the executive control of Dakota. It devolves upon tbe territorial administration to formulate the oall tor the constitutional eonven tion election aad to apportion the dis triots. It is far better plaoe this work in tbe hands of the friends of statehood than to leave it to the enemies of the causAr/ Governor Mellette will lose no time in reaching bis jarisdiotion and as sumiog tbe reins of government. Secretary Blaine has Bent Iowa for Mr. Michael Aastin, of Grinnel, to look him over before be sends bis nomination as minister to tbe Argentine Repablio to the senate. While Mr. Austin has very strong reoommendatione, and is without doubt a gentleman of oulture and ability, it is a question whether it is good policy to Bend a man engaged in trade to a oonntry in order that be may promote his own interests.

Prop'trs The Washington correspondent of tbe Omaha Bee, writing upon Dakota mat teiB, says: The offioe of governor is given to Sooth Dakota and that of seoretary to North Dakota, aooording to the ratio of population. There were a number of appeals in behalf of Seoretary MoOor maok, of Dakota, who is as highly re spected as the governor is not, and the repnblicaa members of the legislature sent a message to tbe president, asking him not to remove MoOormaok for some time jet. Bat General Harrison thought tbat he bad better make a single bite of the oberry, and sent Richardson's name in. Mr. Richardson is the editor of a paper at Grand Forks. Governor Mel lette is an Indiana man, formerly from Munoie, but has been eagagei in busi ness enterprises in Dakota for several years, and is one of tbe foremost men in commerce as well as politics in that ter ritory, He was the ohoioe of the peo ple for governor when they organized their provincial government, and after November, wben the state is organized, be will beyond doubt be continued in the offloe by tbe popular vote. Tbe nomination of Governor (Mellette was, aooording to the rules of tbe senate, re ferred to tbe committee on territories, but tbey reported it back immediately, and be will be confirmed and receive his commission to morrow. fi^P^ /W~" fe^^iSas S$ A)LUME XIY. 1TANKTON, SOUTH DAKOTA, THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH 11, 1889. NUMBER 277 lion. Mr. Austin makes DO seoret of his desire to go to tbe Argentine Republio to extend bis trade. An error in a figure is sometimes of vast oonsequenoe. For instance in printing yesterday an extract from tbe Sioux Falls PreBS a figure eight was plaoed where a figare three should have stood. This made the bonded debt of Yankton oounty $500,000 larger than it really is. For $833,500 read it $333,500. We do not aspire to high figures, but oan rest content with the modest num erals laBt above given. President Harrisan has signed an order extending tbe time from Maroh 15 to May 1.1889, within which the rail way mail eurvioe shall be brought under tbe operations of the civil service law and rules. This extension is made upon the representation of Oivil Service Com missioner Lyman that tbe organization of tbe Bervice could not be aooomplished earlier than May 1, Senator Palmer has said all along that hs would not aooept a foreign appoint ment, but it is thought that he will change his mind and go to Madrid. Hi naturally feels very muoh flattered at the deferenoe paid him by the president, and the compliment of having bis name sent to the senate at the head of the whole list of the Harrison administra tion. Tbe republican administration has oalled for the resignation of Oharles Morton, of Augusta, Me., commissioner of navigation, who was the originator of the Blaine tombstone scandal during the oampaign of 1884, and was rewarded for tbe dirty business by reoeiving an appointment to tbat office. John Brennan, of Sioux Oity, has been tendered his ohoioe of a oonsolate in France, Spain, or any Mediterranean point. Mr. Brennan decllnesjjthe offer beoause he oannot abandon important business interests at Slonx Oity, The Press and Dakotaian suggestion that Yankton is a good compromise point in the temporary oapitol controversy takes weli on the outside. Aspiring towns will like it better as tbey go along. President .Harrison's territorial ap' pointments have thus far been bestowed upon territorial residents. In Washing ton a chief justioe was seleoted from home talent. It is said that Mr, Olarkson, of Iowa, will be tbe first assistant postmaster general. He does not want it, bat will be prevailed upon to aooept. The Aberdeen neighborhood sent over firty delegates to the prohibition con vention at Huron. The Huron's I dan or Dakota. Paris The following is a speoial from which is going the rounds: "Buffalo Gap, or a French Rinoh in Dakota," which is published by Plon, Noarri'j and oompany, of Paris, is a book by Baron Granoey, tee original founder ol tbe Fleur-de-Xjys settlement of Frenoh horse breeders, whose life in tbe territory this book is meant to de soribe, its purpose being an tbe author states in bis prefaoe to show tbe many would-be Frenoh emigrants what they may expeot oat there. Baron Granoey seems to know Dakota wejl, and his descriptions are certainly piotareeque and striking, nor are bis criticisms too severe for an aristooratio Frenohman on whom tbe natural roughness of the cow boys might bave prodaoed a different effeot. It true be does not spare "tbe boys" whom he describes as mnob too fond of wbisky, as also of firing off their revolvers withcot aim or objaot. He is more severe on the granger*, wbo, he says, are the meanest men on earth, who don't know the meaning of the word 'hospitality" and live lor money alone. One of the chapters describes a first oight at a Dead wood theatre, and of the female attendants there, he Bays that they seemed to look on tbeir occupa tions from a business point of view. A good deal of tbe book treats of such toughs as "Speokled Bellied Tim," "Lame Johnnie," "Calamity Jane," and the Indians "Sitting Bull," Louse-in Hair," and other leading lights amongst the Obeyennes and Sioux. Tbe business of cattle raising and details about the Ohiosgo meat market are carefully de scribed. Tbe baron is rather severe on your young ladies whom he desoribes as mnob too thin physically, and morally muob too pushing, and many of his portraits read singularly like oarioatures. Tbe book, however, on tbe whole, is an amusing one and is being eagerly read in Paris, where Dakota affairs jast now are a topic. Offices for Dattotalans Washington speoial: The Dakotaians fonnd their hope deferred to-day, but not snffioient to make tbe heart sick, and Gov. Mellette oame out from an interview with Secretary Noble to-daj as smiling ss a basket *i! :of chips. He was aooompanied by John H. King of Obam berlain, who has a desiie to be astistant commissioner of Indian affairs, and by Delegate Mathers, who is doing great work lor his conatitaejts. King's ambi tion is hardly likely to be gratified, for from present indications Robert V. Belt, the present obief of the Indian division of the sioretary a offioe, seems to be tbe man seleoted for the plaoe. Mathews had a very satisfactory interview witb tbe seoretary and oame out satisfied tbat the appointments deoided upon will not not be long delayed. He carried cinder his armS copy of tbe postal guide, and proceeded at once across tbe ro/id to oonsalt with Brother Wanamaker about some-400 postoffioes, for eaah of-wb^oi he said be had about five applicants. He did not begin to get through, bat will keep ap tbe motion of throwing out democratic postmasters bodily tvr tbe next tbresrweeks as a sort of before breakfast exercise to prepare for tbe £f yyr --S.F WPfHS^Qg^! various work of the day. Seoretary Noble fully expeoted to get his batch of nomi nations in to-day, but found hitches in two or three places and was obliged to give it up. "They will .all go in to morrow," hssaid. Ex-Gov. Ordway, Harjieon Allen and Jnd Lamoure rushed into tbe department with a demand that they be allowed to see the seoretary, as tbey had a matter which most be brought to his notioe before 10 o'olook to-morrow morning, they said. Secre tary Hume refused at first to bear them, as tbe seoretary had given orders tbat no one should be admitted. After much beseeobing tbey got an audienoe and went away rejoioing. Nebraska Office Seikers. A Washington speoial says tbe rush of applicants.for offioe from Nebraska oontinues in an appalling volume. Both of the senators deolare tbat they have never in their experience known of any thing like it, and that every man, wo man and child in tbe state stem to have tbeir eyes upon Bom9 office, or are en dorsing some friend for a position. If publio office had any modesty about it, it would bave been stared out of OOUD- tenanoe long before this. Tbe absenoe of Mr. Oonnel and the oontinned ill health of Mr. Laird bave made it im possible for the delagation to hold a meeting for the general discussion and distribution of patronage. The only appointment whioh baa been made was that of Mr. William D. Backus, of Oo lumbus, as superintendent of the Indian sohool at Genoa. This was deoided on last Wednesday beoause the necessity for filling the vaoanoy, caused by Mr. OhaBe's defalcation, was argent, and the superintendent of Indian schools insist ed that tbe appointment should be made witbin twonty*four hours. The recommendations of Mr, flaokus were fo many aril so strong that there was no difficulty in an immediate agreement. So far as the other appointments are oonoerned it will probably be a matter of a week or ten days before tbey are taken np. Tbe first ones to be filled will doubtless be that of United States marshal and several of tbe land offioer?. It oannot be too clearly understood tbe hosts of applicants for federal po rtions from Nebraska tbat President Harrison is extremely nnliknly to change tbe plan adopted by Mr. Oleveland of opposing removals of offioials before their tenure of ofdee has expired. There area number of positions whioh will nome under this head, notably the United States district attorneyship, in which Mr. Pritchard bai two years yet to serve before bis term exnires Many of tbe presidential postoffioes are in same oategory. It is safe to say that there are from fifty to seventy-five ap plications for every federal position in Nebraska bringing 82 500. In addition, there are applications on file for nearly every territorial position in the gift of tbe government. Trese last are prob abi^Jabpr spent in vair. Ballard's Snow Liniment.'"
