McKinney, of Bioux Falls, one of the South Dakota members of tha joint commission for the two Dakota*, r» turned this morning from Bismarck where he attended the last and tinal see eioti of the commission. All claims werei disposed of one way or another, and th« repfirt of the commission will ba ready for the governor next week. The amount, aettled upon as due North Dakota bsr her southern neighbor waa, in round number, $65,000. which includes S4fi,0l® allowed by the former joint commission. There are ?in outstanding Lorn tonal warrant*, including §li,(*K) inter est, half of which belongs to each state. In tha final settlement reached South Dakota assumes her own share, $*1,000, and of North Dakota's share, leaving fUijOOO as a balance in favor of South Dskota if she takes up nil the territorial wsrrants outstanding ami is sues bonds iu their stead, whieh were the terms of the settlement, North Da kota agreeing to pay the differ ance in cash. Many individual elainM waaa allowad by the commission at its lsst oesaion, as was the claim of the citizenn of Madison, who advanced m5,(MK) to complete the structure of the State Normal school, for which an appropriation had been tuade by the territory, but fell short of the amount necessary to complete the building. The Madison claim waa al lowed at *11,000, the amount of tbe bonds issued by the city of Madison to protect the citizens who had come to the amistance of the board of trustees. Mr. McKinne\ states the South Dakota commissioners received generous treat ment from the members of North Dako ta. Every thing was arranged in tbe moat friendly manner, and adjusted to the satisfaction of every member of the joint commission. In fact, the ooinn.ui sionera of North Dakota gave the bene tit of many doubtful questions to South Dakota, which will accrue to the latter's advantage to a cmratderable satant. t'sffpf* ll*Jler», Sioux Falls Press "Io you know w hat Bitting Boll will do with those cannons the soldiers are taking out from Fort Meade?" remarked Tom Hard wick to the Indium war editor of the Press.

Sioux Fails Press, 13: Yesterday Judge C. S. I'almer received his dis charge papers from tbe war dapartmant for wrving us u soldier us tha civil war, In I8tt! Judge C. 8. Palmer, of this city, then only 17 years old and living with his faiher in Vermont, enlisted nn der peculiar circumstances in the army He had an older brother, S. M. Palmer who in, by tbe way, alive to-day. The latter decided one day to join the army in answer to tha calls being made by President, Lincoln. It waa twelve miles from the Palmer homestead to the com pany's qunrtersjtnd to join them the trip had to be made. So one bright day the two brothera hitched their father's team and left for the camp of company at the Thirteenth V« rniont regiment of the volunteer infantry. Tbe judge was ex pee ted to return and not an inkling had he given his parent* of his intention to join the army. Tin- separation between his father and mother and older brother was one of those rare family see which impress the participants a last ing manner. As the bo.^s were driving acroea the country the judge started out on his miaaion to janmad# his broth er who had already enlisted to givl up the project and let him go in bis stead. Being a minor the judge could not enlist without his father's consent. His older brother ncouted the idea proposed. When they reached the xmpany quar ters it waa dnrk and both retired for the night. Lon^ Oefore dayl -eak the judge arose and dressed himself w his broth er's uniform, ahouldered his gun and then wukahim up. The oidar brother protested, but the judga ramainad ob durate and wheu tha roll call of the company was made he answer e-1 "yas** to S. M. Palmer'a name. Throughout the entire service he always answered to that name. When he was mustered out he was mustered out iu the na.nu of his brother.
