They have strong hopes for Montana.
They bave fair hepes fur North Dakota.
Two of the tour they think tboy may se

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

fealty of south.rn republicanism and ex

The Norfolk News suggests to its

'•'here are pleuty of towns within fifty

Norfolk doesn't waut the road, they will
undoubtedly be given en opportunity to

choice of the projectors of tbe railroad
the prairies are wide and grades are easy

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
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
