Sunset Oox is coming west. Otber distinguished democrats of the sunrise states are ooicing west. Not to file on prairie olaims and ereot rude shacks in tbe lee of buffalo wallows,or to speculate in town lots or gamble on tbe oreation ol railroad oenters. Mr. Oox et al are ooming w£st on political pilgrimages and will range over the big four constel lation of prospective stars in an effort to win over tbe states that are to be and list them in the democratic column. They have strong hopes for Montana. They bave fair hepes fur North Dakota. Two of the tour they think tboy may se duoe from the path of politioal righteous ness. Sunset Cox will be on tbe eround while tbe October campaign rages. He will speak in Huron on the 4th of July, purely upon patriotism and tbo various et eeteras ooinected therewith and will go thence to the north land and abide in the bosom of bis confederate, Ordway. If this was a year when democracy ruled in national administration oircles tbe hope of a democratic turn in tbo politi aal 6vente of the north might be well founded. They are an nnoertein quan tity np there, lacking in the stalwart fealty of south.rn republicanism and ex tremely liable-to 'oaten onto tbe band wagon" without stopping to look at tbe politioal nniform of the mnsioians, But this being a year of republican suprema cy at national headquarters It will hard ly be worth tbe time expended for Sun set Cox to litter tbe pratne with demo cratic tracts or lift up his voxce agsinBt tbe benign inllaecae of the boodle deity. He bad better go west and camp in Montana. Ioasmuoh as the aot which threw open the territory of Oklahoma to settlement failed to contain any ptovision for the organization of a civil government of any form or obaraoter there, that Btrip of land to whiob suoh an emigration is now on its way, will, after tbe 22d in stant, be entirely within tbe jurisdiction of the United States marshal for the In dian territory, ile wilt bavo tbe support of tlie war department in maintaining order and for the purpose of coming to some understanding beforehand there have been several conferences lately be twetn tbe seoretaiy of war and the saoietary of tbe interior. Attorney General Miller has been culled into this eonference on two or three occasions and it is understood that an arrange ment has been entered into whereby General Merritt, iu command of the army in tbat department, will be given earte bia&obe to proceed to bring as matu troops to the scene aa moy be necessary. It is expeoted that ihtre YANKTON, SOUTH DAKOTA, "WEDNESDAY BVENING, ArRIL 17, 1889. will be a great deal ot lawlessness for months to oomo, anc iho troops will ho kept ooDBtantly busy in supporting the United States marshal in maintaining order whete claims cot ilut. Uodor a New York date it is stated that the annual report of the Ohieago, Milwaukee & Sf. Paul road for 1888 shows a nbt revenue of $7,708,651 dis bursements lor interest, dividend* and socounts charged off, $9 553,883 deficits, $1.845,284/balance of surplus on bund, ,229,714. The freight ojrried waB 20'i, 58G tons more thsu a year ago, but on account of deareaeed rates the ojru tegB from freight trufilo were $741,000 less than the preceding year. Tbe bal ance sheet shows that at tbe olose of the yeur the company had a net llaating debt of $4,399,52L, Tbe heaviest in crease in operating expenses was as fol lows: Engineers, conductors, eta., ex penses inoreaBod $397,600 fuel moreased, 8730,900 repairs to tracks and bridges inoreaBed, 8184,800, station servi06 and repairs to looomotives and oars also re quired large sums more than the preced ing year. In tbe oase of the appeal of Charles Jackson from tbe decision of the commissioner of the general land office of April 25th, 1888, refusing complain ant's application to have bis homestead entry of eighty eores amended to em brace another eighty in addition to the original homeBtead, tbe seoretary of the luterior deoided in favor of the olaimant in accordance with an act of oongress of March 21, 1889, providing tbat a home steader who has entered less than one quarter seotion ot land may enter otber and additional land lying contiguous to tbo original entry, wbiob shall not, with tbe land first entered and oooupie3, ex oeed in the aggregate 160 acres, without proof of residence open and cultivation of tbe additional entry. The Norfolk News suggests to its readers that tbe only way to get the Yaukton Sc Norfolk railroad la to vote the bonds asked for. Tne News says: '•'here are pleuty of towns within fifty miles of Norfolk that would gladly vote $60,000 in bonds to secure such a com' petlng line of railroad as the Yankton Norfolk and Southwestern will be. If Norfolk doesn't waut the road, they will undoubtedly be given en opportunity to seoare it. This ib right. While Norfolk is tbe choice of the projectors of tbe railroad the prairies are wide and grades are easy in almost any direction. But the oom paoy does not ask much aid from Nor folk and the little it doea ask will, if granted, be returned a hundred fold. Telegraphic advioeB from B'snnrok state tbat ex-Delegate Gilford v.is dis appointed in hia failure to seonre the appointment of attorney general of Da kota. Other advioeB are tbat Judge Gilford deolined tbe appointment for tbe reason that it would take him from the line of politioal preference. Just what to believe in this connection the far away newspaper oannot advise. There are many degrees of latitude between Bismarok and the southeast corner of Dakota. lied Olond is prancing about tbe corridors of tbo government headquar ters at Washington with a bill in his hand for a herd of scrub ponies alleged to haye been taken from his Indians in 1.875. Tbo dongbty chieftain of the plains has for bis olnb bearer the prinoe of Indian cranks, Dr. Bland, who is pushing a claim that has no validity un til after tbe Indians agree to the reduc tion of tbeir reservation and even, these would be of doubtful propriety. Bailway postal olerks removed by tbe Cleveland administration will be per mitted to resume their positions without encountering tbe oivil servioe examina tion preBoribed for applicants who have seen.no servioe. President Harrison has modified tbe order of President Cleve land to that extent. A report from Chamberlain avers that the Sioux Indiaus at Pine Bidge and Rosebud agenoies are in favor of ratify ing the reservation reduotion bill. This information is not to be strictly relied upon. No Tidings from the Ship. New York, April 10—There is no news of the miBBlng steamer Denmark. Tbe question that now oooupios tbe minds of marine men is: When will tbe Na tional Bteamship Denmark arrive and »ill H~sr- •. she bring news of tbo Danmerk? Tne National steamship is now two days and several hours overdue. There is a possibility that tbo delay of tb? Den mark is due to her being in collision with the Danmark.

Winnipeg, Man., April 15,—Tbe pub lication in this morning's oity paper of al dispatch from Duck Lake announcing that Gabriel Dumont, tho late Lome Kiel's lieutenant in the northwest re bellion, wbb again in the Saskatchewan district holding meetings, oaused quite a oommotion here. It was known that] Dumont bad gone nortb, but while in this distriot he showed no disposition to resume bis agitating tactics. There may yet be Berious trouble on tbe Saskatchewan this season if tbe people du not receive the railways promised them by tbe dominion government. Your oorrespondfBt to-day reoeivea in formation from a Prinoe Albert merobant, who is in tbe oity purchasing supplies, tbat people up there were ready to take ap their niles again if needed, because tbay claim that tbe dominion govern ment bas broken faith with them on tbe railway question. Strong deputa tions were sent to Ottawa last year and promises made in writing by Sir John McDonald, Hon. Mr. Pope, late minister of railwoys, and Dewdney, minister of interior, that tbe railway would reach them this year, while now latest advioeB from Ottawa stated tbat no grant would be given to any northwest road during tbe present session of parliament. Re ferring to the meeting being beld by Dnmont, a oity paper to-day says: It was jast Buoh a meeting aa that ot Duok Lake tbe other day whiob proved the precuraor of the Saskatchewan re bellion of 1885. Kiel in dead, but tbe bolder, abler Dumont lives. If there be! any grievances to addroBa, let tbn gov ernment see to it that tbey be redressed now. Tbe Ottawa authorities should know by this time how fatal it is to pro crastinate. The monument opposite tbe Winnipeg oity ball is an eloquent, if speechless, protest against the wicked neglect whiob alone could make another possible. Ijo\o in a Cottage.

Washington speoial: It developed to day that a msjonty of tbe large namber of callers upon President Harrison dur ing tbe past three or four days ore not seeking appointments, but are spiking other people's guas.
