Terrible Need at Sioux Falls
On the evening oi th-- 18th inst.
when Frank R. Hyde, a prominent
citizen of Sioux Falls, returned to his
home, he found his young wife lying on
the lloor or a front room, stupified
and breathing heavily. In the cradle
his live months baby was dyiug, and
on the bed lay his two years old
daughter dead. After a slight search
the frantic husband and lather found
a note written by his wife declaring
that she felt insanity, hereditary
in her family, creeping upon
her: that her children were des
tined to the same fate and rather
than to live to burden her husband
hlie had decided to die. An empty
bottle, which had contained mor
phine, lay near by. Mrs. Hyde had
always been of happy disposition and
no suspicion had ever warned the hus
band of danger. The family occupied
a high social position and the city is
profoundly shocked. In the morning,
when Mr. Hyde left the house, his wiie
kissed him gaily and appeared in the
best, of spirits. No one saw her until
his return. Doctors were at once
summoned, but can probably save
neithet Mrs-. Hyde nor the babv.
Prof. Foster has again been arrest
ed at Sioux Falls on the charge of big
amy. He will again light extradition.
A. Fosdike, one of the leading cloth
ing dealers of Mitchell, had his store
closed by the sheriff on the 18th inst.,
on an execution by the Mitchell Na
tional bank.
Wni. McCraven, the wealthy stock
man of the Cheyenne river, says there
is no danger of another Indian out
break. as the Indians were contented
with the manner in which they were
being treated by the government.
The bail of Rev. W. E. Gilford. the
Milbunk preacher who is in jail lor
being loo tannliar with a lady mem
ber of nis congregation. ha- been low
ered to $1,000, but up to the time of
penning this item he has failed to se
cure the bail.
Sam Moses and Ed Hart, two Fall
River county men. started in a short
time ago to clear that county of a
gang of cattle and horse thieves infest
ing it, but they have now received
word from the gang that they must
cease their efforts or sutler the conse
quences. Notli withstanding this
threat the two men will continuetheir
[rood work.
Senator Pettigrew has submitted a
proposition to the people of South
Dakota, by which the state can be
represented at the World's Fair. His
scheme is the organization o: a stock
company with 20,000 shares at S5
per share, raising thereby §100,000
to make an exhibit. The proposition
includes another that the state shall
pay par value for the stock at the
next session of the legislature.
The board ofcommissionersof Burle
county last fall purchased two artes
ian well machines from agentleman in
Aurora county. After unsuccessful ef
iorts lasting several months on wells
in different portions of the county,
work has been suspended. The ma
chines failed to reach down over a few
hundred feet, when the drills would
break. As expensive experimenting
has proved them to be useless, the
board oi commissioners has ordered
that, the machines be shipped back to
the original owner.
At the recent sale of school lands in
Burle county a school section located
within the city limits of Chamberlain
was disposed of by the county super
intendent of schools to the highest bid
der. But the state superintendent oi
public instruction some months ago
decided that this valuable tract of
land should not be sold at present,
and in a letter states that the land
was sold unintentionally, and that
said sale would not be approved by
him consequently the tract will still
remain in the possession of the state.
It is now the intention of the state au
thorities to plat the land and dispose
of it by lots.
A very sad and affecting scene took
place a few days ago at Sioux Falls
between Plenty Horse and his father,
Living Bear, who came all the way
from Pine Ridge to see his son for the
last time, as he believes
it to De. When
he entered the cell in the county jail
wiiere Plenty Horse is incarcerated,
the aged father grasped the hand of his
son, crying and sobbing like a child.
Living Bear, amid his sobs, said:
"Tsunkta ota." "You have a bad
heart, you killed Casey. You are a
man and you must suffer." On leav
ing the iail the father presented his
son with a large handkerchief and
told him he would probably never see
him again.
The Manitoba boomers, says the
Aberdeen News, arranged with the
Great Northern railroad company for
a special freight train with which to
carry their dupes with personal effects,
stock, etc., into the heart of thefrozen
North—or the country surrounding
Yorkton— where they were to begiven
lands and make their homes. When
it came to straightening up the mort
gage indebtedness of the dupes there
was a hitch in the proceedings, due to
the absence of that all-in-all essential,
the coin of the realm. In the mean
time the Great Northern raised its
rate of transportation to the promis
ed land from $30 to something over
850
rikTthe
grand exodus, which the
boomers had worked up at infinite
trouble and considerable expense, fails
to come off as planned. So the efforts
of the boomers in that vicinity have
fallen as Hat as a pancake.
iant Powder and Dynamite Send Sev
eral Souls Into Eternity.
A dispatch received at Winnipeg,
Manitoba, dated the 18th inst., con
tains intelligence of a terrible accident
on the Canidian Pacific railway in the
West, near Kootenay. Workmen
had bored a 22-foot hole and loaded
it with ten kegs of blast powder and a
ran of dynamite. They retired about
-150 feet when the fuse waslighted and
shortly afterward a discharge took
place. The foreman thought at the
time that the explosion had not had
the fctlect it should have had, but set
the men to work again, when shortly
alter a dense volume of smoke issued
Irom crevices, and before they
time to do any thing the
had
cliff beneath heaved and split and
the granite hills oil every side rang
with the echo of a loud report. When
the roar had subsided Foreman .Smith,
who was seriously injured although at
onsiderable distance away, discover
ed that, his men had been completely
buried beneath the heavy boulders.
A relief crew was organized anil the
bodies ot the victims were taken out.
Three men, whose names could not be
obtained, wereinstantly killed. Fore
man Smith, August Johnson, Henry
Martin, Jas. Ryan and Justus Matlie
-oii were probably fatally injured,
large boulders weighing several tons
falling on them, anil they with several
others, were badly mashed. Ryan and
Johnson lingered in great agony and
died the next morning. They werenu
tives of Nova Scotia.
United States and Canada.
Tiie following striking paragraph
concerning the 1'nited States ar.dCan
ada is taken from the March number
of the London Nineteenth Century:
"We all know what the I'nited
States of America are. They are eon al
sovereign States, which have delegat
ed certain powers to a centra! author
ity of their own creation, under a riu
il written constitution. Tliey are
contiguous to one another, contain
ing some sixty-three million people,
with identical language, identical insti
tutions, identical aims, and identical
currency: threatened by no strong
neighboring powers: no part of the
federation bound by obligations or
treaties to which any other part ob
jects, or is ever likely to object with
freedom of trade internally and pro
tection externally—a commercial pol
icy, by the way, which seems to be
the present ideal of the whole New
World. Compact within themselves,
and with continuous lines of railroad
(about one hundred and seventy
thousand miles in all) running through
the whole length and breadth of the
federation, they form a colossal pow
er, solid by reason of the diffused own
ership of the land, the diversity of em
ployment between agriculture and
manufactures? the rapidity of inter
communication and, although prac
tically only a hundred years old—not
yet older than individuals still living
among us—they are already, in actual
wealth, the richest community and
the greatest manufacturing commun
ity in the world, potentially fabulous
in population and power, but with no
standing army and a compartively
small navy. Vet they are strong for
defense, because, having no outlying
dependencies and in the last resort be
ing obsolutely independent of external
commerce, owning to their capacity
for supplying abundantly within their
own borders every need of man. all
that they require is a navy strong
enough for purely defensive purposes.
Turn it which way we will, however,
we shall find that there is always one
thing clear—namely, that by tlie inex
orable logic of facts, Canada is essent
ially aNew World industrial power.
She is approaching very rapidly to
the parting of the ways, and one of the
more interesting and far-reaching
events of the near future will be the
course she decides on as to commer
cial union with the United States for
it can scarcely be supposed that she
will permanently cut herself off from
the great market at her doors, and
commercial union will almost inevita
bly bring her to a cioser bond. No
man can tell yet what her decision
will be. All that can be certainly af
firmed is, that it will be one of the
most momentous decisions in the his
tory of the New World, because, if the
Dominioh and Newfoundland eventu
ally determine to throw in their lots
with the United States, the last mater
ial link between the Old World and the
continent of the Western Hemisphere
will be snapped, and the North Amer
ican continent, under a single federa
tion, will present to view the
most sol
id power that the world has ever seen
—purely industrial, armed only for
defense, and with no bone of conten
tion between itself and any other pow
er either of the Old ortheNew
World."
Canadian Roads at War.
Advices received at Chicago are to
the effect that the Canadian Pacific
and the Grand Trunk are fighting over
the grain traffic from the Northwest.
It seems that the Canadian Pacific is
the aggressor, having adopted a tariff
from Minneapolis to Montreal, all
rail, on the basis of the lake and rail
rates recently established. TheGrand
Trunk has retaliated by taking ship
ments of grain to Sarnia by lake, and
thence by rail to Montreal, at 2 1-2
cents below the Canadian Paeific's
tariff. The chances are favorable for
a rate cutting contest in which it is
probable some of the American roads
will be forced to participate.
CHEAPER SUGAR.
Twenty-five Pounds For a Dollar
Will Soon Be tlie Uniform
Price.
The Solicitor of the Treasury Imparts
Interesting Information oil the
Subject.
British Authorities India Arousing
the Fanaticism of the
People.
Hon. W. P. Hepburn, of Iowa,solic
itor oi the treasury, who has been es
pecially charged with an investigation
of the customs business of the repub
lic for the past six months, in a re
cent conversation said: "I am im
pressed with the belief that the Dutch
standard No. li will be the sugar of
the people in the very near future. It
is a great deal better sugar than I ev
er saw on the tables of the common
people before the war. It is better
for everyday use than refined sugar.
It is perfect crystal, absolutely pure
sugar, and incomparable for all pur
poses of home consumption. More
over, mark yon, it will besold through
out this country at the rate of twen
ty five pounds for a dollar."
'•What is the present condition
the customs service in the New York
custom house?"
"That will be exhibited in the report
which I shall submit in about two
months. I cannot talk on that sub
ject at present. My investigationsare
made for the information of the
department, and it would not do for
me to give any opinion nor state any
facts until the report is laid before the
secretary ol the treasury. I can say,
however, that I have learned some
things which were surprising to myself,
and which will probably prove ot
interest to thecountry. But my work
cannot be foreshadowed nor even
hinted at, just now, save in a general
way. 1 have been very busy for some
months past, and am not idle now.
either."
"How much time are you giving to
this work?"
"I usually leave here either on Mon
day morning or after midnight on Sun
day. It is my aim to return to my of
fice on Saturday to look after "the
routine business of my office, and see
that things are going* along all right
during my enforced absences."
Solicitor Herburn h:is undoubtedly
discovered abuses in the customs ser
vice in the great port of New York,
but it would be manifestly improper
to have them diviuged at present, and
therefore we must await his report.
Your correspondent is personally
aware of the fact that this government
is losing more than SI ,000,000 annu
ally by the present system, and alleg
ed precedents prevailing in the New
York custom house, by the laxity, of
discipline, and the carelessness exhib
ited examining persons and baggage
coming into New York on foreign ves
sels.
"We lose annually more than this
government collected any year during
its first 25 years of existence," said
an old employ of the treasury
department a few days ago. "We
lose that much every year at the port
of New York alone," he added, and
specifically called my attention to the
tact that a certain jeweler in this city
was recently discovered in smuggling
$10,000 worth of diamonds.
Col. Hepburn would not say
anything "definite concerning his
investigations of thecustoms business,
but emphasized his views on Dutch
standard sugar, saying: "Gov. Boies
either don't know what he has been
saying about sugar, or else he has
been willfully deceiving the people of
Iowa and others who have read his
remarks."
Ail Idiotic Policy.
The excitement in Benares, India, a
few days ago, originating from the
demolition of a temple in order to
provide a site for the new waterworks
is on the increase. All the shops in
Benares are closed and all the natives
in the city and district have suddenly
stopped work and are gathering in
large crowds in and about the princi
pal thoroughfares ot the holy city.
The result is that serious riots have
already occurred between the disturb
ed natives and the local authorities
of Benares, who are supported by the
British troops quartered in that vicin
ity. In response to several dispatches
sent to the marquis of Lansdowne,
the governor general of .In
dia who is now at Bimia,
directing the movements of the
troops marching on the Manipur dis
trict in order to avenge the Manipur
massacre and themurderofChief Com
missioner Quinton and his staff, strong
reinforcements composed of European
and native troops have been drafted
into Benares' and further reinforce
ments are on their way to the same
city. British troops are guarding all
the banks, public buildings, and also
occupy, in force, many points of vant
age throughout the city and district.
It is consequently presumed that the
troops will be able to suppress
promptly any serious outbreak upon
the part of the natives, but the event
ual effect of the spirit of resentment
and indignation existing among the
Hindoos, already felt far and wide in
India, cannot at present be correctly
estimated.
Suicide of a Grand Duchess.
The correspondent of the Standard
at St. Petersburg telegraps that pa
per, declaring that there no longer re
mains any doubt that the Grand
Duchess Olga Feodorovna, sister in
law of the czar and the mother of the
Grand Duke Michael Michaelovitoh,
who was recently privately married
to the countess of Meremberg, daught
er of the duke of Nassau at San Remo,
committed suicide by taking poison.
The czar was greatly exasperated
when informed of the marriage, and
indicated his deep
displeasure by strik
ing the name of tne grand duke
from the list of Russian army
officers, and by ordering the
elimination from the army list of the
titles of such regiments as" werenamed
for the grand duke and of which he
was zo'.onelj the Grand Duchess Olga,
who had unavailingly exhausted every
means of placating the czar, and of
inducing him to condone the offence of
her son, died suddenly on April 13.
It was was supposed at the time that
death was from natural causes,
precipitated, perhaps, "by grief that
her son had fallen under imperial
displeasure. The Standard's dispatch
seems to make it clear that the
unfortunate lady put an end to her
existence rather than to survive her
failure to make peace between the
czar and the grand duke.
Prominent Men Implicated.
It has transpired tnatCapf Verney,
the Liberal member of parliament,
who lleil to escape prosecution for ab
ducting girls, was betrayed by a French
woman recently arrested and convict
ed in 1 jondon for procuring young
women in England for immoral pur
poses in Paris. The French woman
gave the authorities valuable informa
tion, implicating prominent men, both
American and English, as the patrons
of her traffic. An American in Paris,
whose name has not been given, is
said to have been the worst of the ab
ductors. Capt. Verney was a popular
member, a favoi ite in the clubs, and
a welcome associate of Mr. Gladstone.
A Preacher Murdered.
William Denny, a preacher ot the
Cumberland Presbyterian church of
Greenville, 111., died from wounds re
ceived a few days ago, at the hands
of Bud Thatcher. A-- Denny was
leaving the village of Sorento that
night, tor Irving, where he had just
been called to his first regular charge,
he was met by Thatcher, who began a
discussion about a balance which he
claimed Denny owed him for clearing
some land. In the course of the argu
ment Thatcher sevtral times called
Denny a liar, and the latter finally
losing patience, struck Thatcher with
his gloved hand, whereupon Thatcher
stabbed him three times with a knife,
making a wound near the heart by
the first blow, and penetrating his left
arm with the other.
Bolivia a Claimant Too.
A singular fact in connection with
the Italian matter, which has entirely
escaped attention up to the present
time, is that one of the leading Ital
ians lynched at New Orleans was act
ually, at the time ol liis death, the
recognized counsul at that port of a
foreign government—not that of Italy.
Jose P. Macheca, the alleged head
of the Mafia and the moBt prominent:
of the victims ot the mob, still stands
on the records of the state depart
ment as the duly recognized consul of
Bolivia in New Orleans. He was a
wealthy merchant. His firm of Me
checa Bros, still continues as the
agency of one of the important steam
ship lines touching at New Orleans and
trading with South American ports,
and it'was probably Iromtliis connec
tion that Macliecacameto be appoint
ed consul for Bolivia. The hard fact re
mains that he was such consul at the
time of his unauthorized execution.
Boli\ ia has no diplomatic representa
tive here. Its most prominent agent
is Consul-General Obarria, of New
York It does not appear that lie
has made any movement in the mat
ter.
Mr. Obarrio was a delegate to the
recent international monetary com
mission which sat in Washington. In
cideutally. during his visits to the cap
itol in'that connection, he mentioned
with regret that since the disastrous
Chili-Peruvian war, Bolivia had been
left without any seaport and had to
do all her commerce through neighbor
ing states. Bolivia, without a navy
or seaport, is a very small factor
among nations. Nevertheless, it is
possible that some explanation may
be asked of the United States as to
killing of one of its consuls.
Opened a Registered Letter.
In the United States court at Bis
marck, N. D., on the 15th inst., sen
tence was pronounced on William
Kelley, ot Grand Forks, for taking
valuables from a registered letter.
The sentence of the court was that he
pay a fine of $250 and stand com
mitted until satisfied. The grand
jury returned indictments against
John A. Fisher, of Ardock, and John
A. McLain, of Grafton. Both plead
guilty and were sentenced to pay a
line of $100. William R. Schendle, of
Grafton, was indirted for selling li
quors with a governmentstamp. The
case was consigned to the Fargo term,
convening in May. Court adjourned
after the above business.
Asked for $100,000.
H. B. Walmeley,theactiveprojector
of the Duluth, Red Wing fc Southern
railroad line, will have the name of
Superior inserted in the corporate
title. He urges Superior citizens to
subscribe $100,000 to a construction
company to build the line as their
share of $750,000 required to put the
work under way. The citizens do
not show great enthusiasm, but it is
stated that the consolidated land
company have intimated their will
ingness to give at least $50,000. Mr.
Walmsley appeared before a special
meeting of the chamber of commerce
and explained at length the benefits
that would arise from the building and
operation of the proposed roads.
A GHOST OF OLD.
South Carolina's Latest Stand ON the
States Rights Issue—Gov. Tillman
and Nolile Clash.
Over the. Method of IHtision of the Ap
propriation for Schools—The
RaeeQuestion Involved.
President, Hill Decides In Extend Hie
Montana Central—Vessel Owners
Wage Scale Refused.
A Charleston, S. C., special says: A
unique and interesting phase of the
state rights question has just been
presented in a correspondence which
has taken place between Gov.Tillman,
of that city, and Secretary o) the In
terior Noble. The subject of the cor
respordence is the division of the
state's share of the federal appropria
tion for mechanical and agricultural
colleges. At the session of the state
legislature which adjourned last De
cember, an act was passed providing
that the quota to be received by
South Carolina should be divided in
to two equal parts, one-half to be giv
en the Clemson Agricultural College
for whit es, at Pendleton, and the other
to the Clatlin College for colored
youth, at Orangeburg. A tew days
ago Ciov. Tillman addressed a letter
to Secretary Noble, applying for South
Carolina's quota of the fund ap
propriated under the act of con
gress,, approved Aug. 30, I8'.i0. in re
ply, Secretary Nobie objected to the
method of division decided upon by
the legislature and informed the Gov
ernor that this state's quota was at
his disposal, to be divided between the
two colleges on the basis of the pro
portion of tne school population un
der census of 18!'0, which was 30.7
white and '.3.3 colored, and the secre
tary announced that it was only by
pledging a division on this basis that
south Carolina could get her money.
Gov. Tillman promptly raised the
issue that the money was due South
Carolina and that the secretary oi the
interior had nothing whatever to do
with the division of the fund. Natu
rally Secretary Noble differed with
him, and the Governor, a. day or two
ago, issued his ultimatum in a letter
to Acting Secretary George Chandler,
in which lie says: "South Carolina lias
dealt liberally with her colored col
lege in the past, and I am sorry to see
it crippled by a refusal on your part
to accept the apportionment propos
ed by the state. As Governor, I have
no authority to do more.and if Iliad.
I would refuse to accept the money
under the terms you offer.
I nder the act of congress, the mon
ey will remain in the hands of the se
cretary of the interior until congress
meets, when the state can appeal to
that body. The state authorities an
nounce their determination to carry
the matter to the supreme court if
necessary. The South Carolina legis
lature does not meet again until next
November, and Gov. Tillman can take
no further steps toward accepting the
qota until instructed by tlieassembly.
President If ill Decides to Extend the
Montana Central.
President S. J. Hill is on his way
back to St. Paul from Helena, Mont.
His present trip will not extend to the
coast as announced. It isnow known
that the object of his visit was to in
vestigate the subject of extending the
Montana Central, a branch of the
Great Northern, from Butte to Ana
conda, a distance of 20 miles. The
only line between these places is a
short Union Pacific branch and it
has troble, and that annually, with
the Anaconda Mining .t Smelting Com
pany. The latter company pays over
§500,000 annually freight charges on
ore and fuel handled by the railroad.
A Great Northern official recently
stated that there was no doubt but
that the Great Northern president
has arrived at a satisfactory agree
ment with the officers of the Anacon
da company for the business of that
organization and that work would be
gin in ji short time on the new line.
The Vessel-Owners' Wage Scale Itefus
ed—Engineers May Strike.
Chicago vessel owners have thrown
down the gauntlet to the Seaman's
Union and will establish an independ
ent shipping office, where sailors will
be engaged regardless of the rules laid
down by the Lake Seaman's Benevo
lent Association. This decision was
reached at a recent meeting of the
Lake Michigan Vessel-owners' Associ
ation, held in the Lumbermen's Ex
change. The ship-owners made a pro
position to base wages on freight pro
fit. The rate of Menominee and Man
istee was .to be taken as the basis.
When the rata to either of these plac
es was §1.50 per 1,000 feet of lumber
wages were to be $1.50 a day. This
was a minimum rate. When the rate
of lumber advanced to these places
wages were to be advanced in the
same ratio. The Seaman's Union met
this with a point blank refusal.
The sailors would have nothing to
do with scale. They demanded $2 a
day and the employment of none but
union men. The negotiations came
to an abrupt end, when both sides be
gan to organize for a struggle.
Marine engineers in Chicago are or
ganizing in anticipation of a general
strike. Many of the vessel-owners at
Cleveland, Buffalo, and Detroit have
declared their intention to reduce wag
es the coming season. Thus far but
few attempts have been made at re
duction, as only a small proportion of
the steam vessels in the different ports
have been put in commission. It is
barely possible that with the general
pening of navigation an all-arcundo
cut may be made in the salaries of en
gineers. mie engineers
are prepared to
resist this to th© extent ot ordering &
general strike. The wages paid last
year to first-class engineers was $125
a. month, the second class received $76

It was at the corner of Fourth and
Main streets, about 2 o'clock one
morning this week, and a bunch o:
newspaper men were on their way to
the police station at Fourth and Dele
ware, says tht- Kansas City Times.
Just as the party turned up Fourth
street one of the number noticed a
drunken man 011 all fours in the mid
dle of Main street. He was scrambling
to get up, but no sooner did he get
halt on his feet than down he would
come again. Each time he fell his
head struck the hard blocks, and in
iess than two minutes his face was a
as of an is
drunken man's side was a handsome
gray dog. He was a blocky young ani
mal of 110 particular kind, but a look
into his eyes demonstrated that lie was
an animal of great intelligence. The
dog put bis nose under the lallen man
and helped to raise him, whinning
piteously every time the unfortunate
fellow fell. The dog's efforts were al
most human, but he was unable to
get his master on his feet.
A couple of bystanders went to the
man and lifted liini. The dog growled
ominously at lirst, but half a minute
later he seemed to understand that it
was all right. The man, who was a
Clay county farmer, was helped to the
police station, where he was put in a
cell for the night. The dog followed
nis master up to the captain's desk
and down into the prison. When the
bars were closed between the man and
the faithful pet, the latter broke out
dismally. It was more than the
turnkey could stand and the hand
some gray animal was let into the cell.
He sniffed around a moment to see
that everything was all right and then
jumping on the bunk curled down at
his master's feet and went to sleep.
