Telephone number 5. JSOWBN & K1NQBBDBY. Prop'tr. Two important matters were consider ed st last night's meeting of the oity ooaooil—a petition for a street railroad franchise acd a petition tor the oonstruo tion of a sewer on Third street from Broadway to the river. Tbe application for a street railroad franohise was made by R. F. Pettigrew, of Sicnx Fttlle, in tbe name of the Yank ton street railway company, which has recently been incorporated by Mr. Petti grew. The ordinance tbe oounoil is ask ed to enaot was presented along with tho application. It provides for twenty years' privilege of tbe streets of Yankton for the lines of the street railway oom pany, bat does not specify that this sball be an exclusive right. Tbe pro posed obarter ia mild and conservative in its terms and thtre oau be no objec tion to ito enactment It nerely con veys to the company the rights necessary to eaable it to cooBtrnot anl maintain a street railway. The proposed ordinance was referred to the oity attorney and a ooanoil committee, wbioh was instructed to request Mr. Ptttigrew to visit Yank ton and confer with the attorney and the oommittee. Provision was made for an immediate report to a special meeting of the oounoil and there will be nothing more than neoessary delay in complying with tbe Pettigrew request. Tbe petition for sewerage on Third street, signed by a majority of the prop erty owners along the street, was re ferred to the oommittee on sewers and sewerage with instructions to report to a special meeting of the oounoil. The movement for a sewer underneath Third street contemplates the beginning of sewerage work under the plan pur ohased irom C. Lowetb, of St. Paul. Under this plan the whole or any por tion of the proposed sewerage system of Yankton oan be constructed, beginning with the main sewer along Third street. There ia an absolute ntoeesity for this improvement, in the interest of health and convenience of the people who live and do business along Tbird etreet. The occupants of buildings along this street have long felt tbe need ot sewerage end the oontemplated construction of new buildings along tbat etreet emphasizes tbe necessity for immediate eewerago. These two improvement propositions meet with hearty endorsement. Tbey mean something of a substantial nature which will add to values and increase outside oonfideDce in the oity tbat is now attracting so muoh attention. They will give employment to tbe unemploy ed and money to those who most need it. They will lead to other improve ments of a metropolitan character aod will push our progress as a community to tangible results. The more Yankton improves the better it builds for itself. The president bas blighted the bopeb of exaotly twenty-flve men in Michigan by his aotion in appointing a governor for Alaska. Tbe present governor ar rived in Washington several days ago, and tendered his resignation to the sec retary of the interior. His will return to Uiohigan and re eater tbe newspaper business, which he left to go to Alaska. It was beoause Governor Swiueford was from Michigan that so many men from that state applied for tbe position which ha had. The appointee is Lyman E. Knapp, of Vermont, who was indorsed by Senator Edmunds. Governor Mellette's proclamation nader the admission act provides that an eleotion shall be held in South Da kota May 14, 1889, at the usual voting plaoe in eaob preoioot. That the eleotors shall vote for leventy-five delegates to tbe constitutional convention and ehali oast ballots upon wbioh are printed tbe words, "For tbe Sioux Falls constitu tion," or "Against tbe Sioux Falls con stitution." The proclamation further specifies that no person shall vote for more than two candidates for delegates. The fight for tbe position of adjutant general of tbe army is oommenoing to wax warm as the retirement of General Drum, tbe presett adiatant-genera'l, draws near. Crenel Kelton is the of ficer most often spoken of for tbe posi tion. Genera! McKaevtr and Colonel W. D. Whipple aro his strongest rivals. There will be a tremendous amount of in Uaence, social and otherwise, brought to bear on Secretary Prootor and General Harrison. General Drum retires May 10. J. F. Bair, of Haron, is annonnoed as tbe probable soooeasor of Colonel Miller, reoeiver of the Haron land office. Tbe newly appointed register of that effioe J. F. MoDowell, will enter upon his duties the last of this month, MoDowell was not endorsed by Dakota men, but was pnabed in over the beads of Mathews and Mellette by the Illinois delegation. Colonel Miller's removal is to be effected by obarges. 1 William Molntyre, of Winona, having projeoted a series of railroads for Water town, has retired to his home while tbe people vcte tbe bonds asked by him in 11 of hie several enterprise?.
