Among the gentlemen prominently mentioned for tbc governorship of Da kota territory is Major N. C. Warner, of Rook ford. Speaking of him. the Rocks ford Jowrnalslleruld says that "he can be recommended to this administration as a alerting democrat, a gentleman of bright talents and unalterable honesty, a tine lawyer, and a most popular citizen President Cleveland , could not secure a better man for Dakota's governorship, and will we believe, consider his claims carefully," every word of which all who know Major WarneT will heartily en dorse. Mr. Warner was a gallant soldier during the, lale war. lie enlisted as a private in the 39ih III. regiment, served three years,' and then re-eniisted in the same regiment. In the fierce fighting about Dutch Gap, in Virginia, when the color bearer . of hi9 regiment was shot down, Mr. Warner seized the colors and dashed to the front with them, receiving a bullet in his body as a result, and 4n other in his right leg, from the effects of which he lost that limb. Gallant service made him major by promotion. We are pleased to aunounce that Miss Cleveland's forthcoming book will pre sent a very attractive exterior, says the Peoria Journal. In other word J, it will be elegantly dressed. Its gifted authoress has already sprung one surprise on the ultra-fashionables by the exhibition of her exquisite taste in dress when it was supposed that she would appear hi the national capital as fubsy and frowsy as a mature country school ma'am. The mere announcement, therefore, that the bind ing of the book will be old gold in color, and that the cloth for it is of a new kind imported from London expressly for this purpose, will be received with unbounded satisfaction, if not joyous surprise. With this beautiful material to commence with there is bo doubt that the trimmings will be tasteful and elaborate. The first cover will be cut bias and gored around the edges, with applique bands and Vandyke points, pink satin bows in the upper cor ners, while the top will be trimmed in delicate rucbing. In the lower right hand corner will be affixed a dainty loop of twisted raw silk by which the cover can be thrown back to open the book. The back will be puffed above the title lines, scolloped immediately below, and trimmed en oounanl, terminating en train. This will give the book an impos. ing appearance when it takes its place on the library shelf. The last cover will be edged with Valenciennes lace, and a strip of puffed light blue satin will run, diagon ally across the cover from corner to cor ner. Little trimming is required for this side of the book, for if it is used as a cen ter table ornament it will not be exposed to view. It is to be regretted that Broth er Grover will not permit the portrait of bis sister to appear in the book, although one has been engraved for it. The pic ture is from a photograph taken two years ago. It represents Miss Cleveland as student and lecturer, and those who have seen it say that she has a very scholarly look. Another picture of Miss Cleve land was recently engraved in Washing ton for a book intitlcd, '-Ladies of the White House." Grover objected to it and sent word to the publishers to destroy the plates, saying that he didn't want his sis ter's pictures hawked all over the couutry Grover is a very fastidious man for brother and would probably make a gooi brother-in-law. It is expected that the sale of Miss Cleveland's book, which is entitled "George Eliot and Other Studies will reach 50,(XI0 copies. There are great many men who think that by invest ing two or three dollars in the book i will help each tmrchoser to get a thousand dollar office, and while Ibis feeling lasts it is sure of a rapid sale. HO MANIFEST DE8TIH? POLICY. A statement, based on apparent au thority, comes from Washington that the president is -entirely and absolutely op posed to the further acquisition of Mex can, Cuban or other territory. In other w ords, he thinks he has enough to do at home without entering upon new schemes of territorial aggrandizement abroad. We are to have then, it would seem, not jingo but a conservative foreign policy We are to mind our own business and let other nations attend to tReirs. We are to have neither foreign alliances nor foreign enmities or complication. There is to be no border raiding, filibustering or gener al buccaneering. , We are to live at peace with our neighbors and with the whole world. Neither conquests nor annexa tions nor any schemes or national ags grandizement are to be pushed forwaid Instead of an indefinite extension of ter ritory we are to govern well and improve vastly what territory we have. We have land enough to support treble our popn lation if properly cultivated and im proved. ,' We Lave population enough with its natural increase to constitute the happiest, moat prosperous and biost en lightened nation yet known, if widely educated and wisely governed. And as that free government which is best, we can lay just claim to ''the best govern ment on earth," provided its administra- is reformed and purified.

TUSH THE BASCALI OUT. J , Council BlolTaGlob. - Scarcely a day passes but the telegra phic newt brine the intelligence of the arrest, or the hasty departure of a repub lican office holder, under a cloud. Most of these cases have been some distance from this city, though the inspectors rec ently have reported irregularities atsev. eral points near this city, notably Earl ing and West side. Only a short time since, Wado Hampton was captured for the theft of money packages in this city and now the Startling announcement U made of the arrest of a mail contractor in Omaha, who has been carrying on a sys- tem of thieving f Dr some time.

The mater ran along until June 1st, when Inspector Kobinson, who relieved Sleen, took active measures to work the case up. He investigated the record of the Oondrons and found that one of them, S. W, had served a term in the Iowa penitentiary for mail robbery. Following this. Inspector Robinson did a little detective work, resulting in the ar- sl of S. W. Condron, on a complni.it sworn out by Lulled Stutes District At torney Lamhertson. When taken into custody Condron confessed that he bad kept up a system of petty stealing from the merchandise pouches ever since tak ing the contract to transport the mails la9t winter. ONE OF IKGER80LL S JOKES. The Washington Star prints the follow- ng: A good and perhaps true story is told f Bob Ingersoll aud Secretary Lamar Bob called at the interior department and asked to see the secretary. De sec try is occupied, sah, with members and senatahs only. Won't see nobody else, sah," said the colored mes senger at the door. Bob waited for a moment wub his hands in bis pockets. Then he pulled out a half dollar and dropped it into the janitor s hand, after giving a few whis pered instructions. A. moment latter the messenger walked into the secretary s room, where a large number of senators aud members assembled, and addressed the secretary: "Mr. Sec'tary, Mr. Bob Ingersoll am at de doah. He savs be un derstands that this &m de time when you won't see any but members and senatahs, an be wants to know when you receive enllemcns."

'Have you any of the same brandy leftr "Yes. sir."" "In the same decanter?" "Yes, sir." "Give us some of the same brandy out of the same decanter. It is given him, and he putes down the fifty cents and the liquor. 'Is that the same brandy that Booth drank that night? 'Yes, sir." 'And then he went out and shot the President?" 'Yes. sir."

SOLID FACTS, DUG FROM THE VERY FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH, Showing Something or tha Mineral Ke- onreM of the Tnlted State and What a Year's Prod net Amount to In Dollars. Washington Cm, June 23. The second report on "Tbe Mineral Raouroas of the United States. " by Albert William, Jr., chief of the division of mining statistic and technology, United Btates geological wir- vet. is now in crew and will be issued shortly as one of the census publications. The report is for tba calendar year 1883 and 1884, and contains detailed - statistics for these period and also for preceding yean, together with much descriptive and technical matter. According to the report ,ha commercial ntoduct of the coal folds lots of anthracite mixed elwhere than in Pennsylvania, 6(5,875,773 long tons; total. 97,504,005 king tons. The spot vain of the commercial product was: Pennsylvania- Anthracite, Kl,4H6,5s; bituminous and all other coals, $70,819,501; total, $131,656,147. Including the local con sumption, etc., toe total product in IbtU may be stated at lOo.yOo.'JM long ton.; namely, 1,175,756 long tons of Pennsylvania anthracite, and 73,730,5ft long tons of bi tuminous ani all oth r coals; and the value at the mines was: Pennsylvania anthracite, (1)6,351,512; bituminous and al 1 other coal-t, 77.417,0tJtS; total, 143,7tM,57S. The total production (that Is, including colliery and local consumption) of rnthracite was 1,100,- 713- long tons less then in 1183, while its value was $10,905,543 lews, the dispropor tionate decline in value being due to a fall of 25 cents per ton at spot prices (12.25 to $3). The total bituminous coal production increased 5,199,039 long tons over that of 1S33, but it value was $4,.- 734 less, the average valuation at the col lieries have fallen from f 1.30 to 11.05. The total output of nil coals showed a net gain in tonnage of 4.0:iS,326 long tons, and a decline in value of 15, 726.277. There weri 4,S73,SJ5 short of coke made in 1SS4, worth $7,242, 878 at the ovens. This production consumed 7,951,974 short tons of ooaL Toe amount or coke made was 590,916 less than in 1S83, and the value was $878,729 less. The production of crude petroleum in 1684 was 24,089,758 barrels of 43 gallons each, of which the Pennsylvania and New York oil fields produced 23,622,75$ barrels. The total value at an average spot price of 85 cents was $20,476,294. As compared with 1883, the production was 689,529 bar- rels greater, but tbe total value was $5,263, 958 less, the average spot price having falleu from $1. 10, or 25 fonts par barrel From tn report it appears that 8, JiJU.Oou long tons of iron ore were mined in 1S84, valued at the mine at $22,550,000. The pig iron made aggregated 4,097,s'i8 long tons, decrease of 497,642 tons as compared with 1SS3, valued at the furnace at $73,761,624, or $18,148,576 less than in 1383. The product of copper in 1884, including 2,858,754 pounds made from imported py rites was 145,221,934 pounds, worth $17, 789,687, at an average price of 12k cents per pound in New York. The amount was 28,070,139 pounds greater than the produc tion of 1883, but the value was $275,120 less, owing to tbe decliue tn price. The total value of tbe metallio product of 1884 was fi8,U97,3W, and of tbe non- metallic mineral product $327,007,021, making a grand total of $413, 104, 72a Tables stowing the quantities and values of tbe mineral products of the United States in 1883 and 1SS2 were appended for comparison. From these it appears that the total value of the metals and minerals produced in 1884 was $39,100,018 less than in 1883, and that the decline in 1883 from 1882 was $3,013,061; that is, the falling off in Value began on a small scale in 1883, but was accented in 1884. The net de cline, say the author of the report, has been due rather to a depression in price than a decrease In quantity; indeed, several im portant snbstancai show a decided increase in production, notwithstanding the general dullness of the trada The over-producing, taking the whole field into consideration, bas been less than was generally feared.

Dr. Douglas thought there lad been too many visitors Friday. 1 he family, for tho Brst time since their irrlval, rested continuously. Thoy were lot informed of tbe general's restlessness intit morning. They also think it was due n the bo lily and mental irritation of Fri- lay. The suiferer is far from cheerful.

The whole regiment is very warm over tho affair, and so are all the members of the exchange nh i were sioken to about it, and they promi-e a searching investiga tion and puni-hment of the ptretrators of the insult How Tliejr Unlit the Hallway.
