Mr. Reynolds has occupied the position of leader of orehestra in the Dos Moines upera house, and comes to this city highly recommended. A first-class band is a necessary adjunct to a city of Madi •on's pretensions, and our citizens gener dlly ought to give substantial enoourage fnent to the K. P. band. Open air oon erts have been popular in other cities why not encourage the K. P. band to in ftitute a series of concerts during the Riminer months. Sioux Falls Press, 8: States Attorney iad ailey yesterday figured up how much oome inW the liquor prosecution md from the oases which had been trosecuted by him, and the amount was 1589.40—which would more than pay the ntire expenses of the cases that have rndSheriff en brought into the county. Of the Sunbdack has received most 4th« money, two bills of which figure $ & 190.45, while the clerk's fees are From this it would seem that arrosts of the prosecution of the viola tes of the law will be paid by them alves. States Attorney Bailey expressed be opinion that the fund would pay the Dnning expenses, and the cdunty would ot be out a cent in the long run. i A rather pitiful case came to the at totion of the county commissioners this ternoon.

Obituary. Katherine HUD W''tPWl. mmTASreR.-Dred, on Ap*! Mm. tamer, widow of Valentine ilun ta mer, at PlanKinton, in her sixty-fifth year. Mrs. Huntamer with her husband came to America from Baden-Baden, Germany, in 1845, and settled in Grant county, Wisconsin, where she resided until the death of her husband ten years ago, when she came to Dakota. At the time of her death, Mrs. Huntamer was living with her daughter, Mrs. C. C. Hamilton, of Plankinton, when a sharp attack of pneumonia resulted fatally. The body was carried to Potosi, Wiscon sin, her old home, and the funeral oc curred yesterday morning. Seven sons and two daughters accompanied the re mains of their mother to their last rest ing place. Mrs. Huntamer had twelve children, eight sons and four daughters, of whom all but one daughter survives her. And all of them now reside in Minnehaha county except Mrs. Hamilton of Plank inton and John and Henry of Lake oounty. All of the sons are prosperous and well known farmers. William and John reached Sioux Falls just twenty years ago, and have been among the most respected and influential citizens of the county.—Sioux Falls Argus-Trader. HTATB IS. t». COXVEXTIO*.

A cordial invitation is extended to all. The School Law. The following very important opinion has been rendered by the attorney gen eral in response to a request of the state superintendent in regard to certain fea tures of the new educational bill: Replying to your request for the opin ion of this office on questions submitted, I would say that hitherto the genera educational law has fixed the time for elections in cities, etc., at general elec tion thereof that there being no such provision injthe new law, it is not clear where the power to provide for such elections is to be found. But treating chapter nine of the act as vesting mu nicipal corporations, cities, etc., with an additional corporate capacity, they would probably have power to provide by ordinance for elections in expectation of the laws as a necessary incident there to. As to school districts it would seem that a fine construction of the law bear ing upon the corporate organization thereof, would permit the present school township and district officers to hold over until superceded by those elected in June next. Yours Respectfully, ROBERT DOLLABD. The Xew Land Law. Washington dispatch, 7: Ever since ex-Congressman Carter was appointed commissioner of the general land office the officials of that bureau have been trying to fix up a set of regulations for the government of the work of the land office under the new law, but, owing to several wide points of difference between the officials having the matter in charge, it will probably be some days before the rules are fixed up. The important points in the controversy are: First, to decide whether or not the department shall now take notioe of any contest pending in the general office which was filed in a local land office more than two years af ter final proof was made on entry sec ond, What disposition shall be made of the intervening right acquired by a per son who had filed on land afterwards cancelled without notioe to purchaser or mortgagee. The final decision in these two important matters is of vital impor tance to settlers and others having in tereet in government lands. Under the new law it it provided that, regardless of the compliance of original entrymen with the law, if final proof was accepted and the land passed by mortgage or deed to a third party, the integrity ot the title cannot be questioned. Weather JBnlletla. Huron dispatch, 7: The following paragraph appears in the weather crop bulletin for North aftd South Dakota is sued for the past week, from the United States signal office in this city: The temperature during the week has been below the average, while the amount of precipitation (snow and rain) has been above the average, in some lo calities greatly in excess. The weather has been generally cloudy, as compared with the same week in other seasons. More or less individual seeding was done the week preceding, but the snow and rain on the 29th and 30th inter rupted this work, whioh has been furht er delayed by the prevailing cold weath er since. Everything, however, appears to be in readiness for seeding to become general as soon as warmer weather occure. From nearly all sections, especially iu South Dakota, the ground is reported in excellent condition for the reception of seed as soon as free from the influence «f the recent cold weather,and amply moist for all present needs. Many correspond ents report that the prospects for an early "setting" and sprouting of small grains was probab^f ^ever better because of the moist condition of the ground. The snow of Sunduy and Monday had almost entirely disappeared by Tuesday night, and all kinds of stock are feeding uninterruptedly on the range. The White Terror or France. In the eight day* that form La Semaine Sanglante of May, 1871, it .Is estimated that no less than 35,000 Parisians were butchered in the streets or on the road to Versailles. The Bonapartist Gen. Gallifet, with a cigar between his teeth and a cruel smile on his lips, would have laucrbed to scorn go slow and mild an instrument, as tne guillotine. In the Bastion 43 of the Paris fortifications he caused a deep trench to be dug, and, standing 800 prisoners in front, mowed thora down with mitralleuses of Gatlinj gun^. Those men and women had not had trial, had not been found guilty Gen. Gallifet did not stop to inquire whether they were all dead, but the earth was thrown over them as they lay a writhing, bleeding, tangled mass of human flesh, at the bottom of the trench. I have seen two men who wero thus executed and left for dead, but managed to crawl away before the time for burial arrived. One had seven and the other eleven bullets in his body and yet both survived. ARBOR DAY- ttereraor Mellette Annonnrei* That It Will Oecnr on Slay 1—He Hare to Plant n Tree. Whereas, the ceremonies of Arbor day, which are generally observed through out the states by setting apart a day an nually for the planting of trees and the dissemination of knowledge of forestry and statistics pertaining to the impor tance of the problem of the world's fu tuie timber supply, has become a cus tom in South Dakota, Now, therefore, I, Arthur C. Mellette, governor of the state of South Dakota, do hereby designate and proclaim Fri day, the 1st day of May, 1891, to be ob served as Arbor day in South Dakota. Teachers should take this occasion to impress upon pupils the necessity of timber to civilization, besides its impor tant climatic influence, and utilize the day by planting trees upon public grounds and providing for their culture. Parents and children should observe the day by planting trees about their homes and private grounds. Citizens should give the subject recognition from a pub lic standpoint. I especially invoke the aid of the press, the great lever of mod ern power, in aid of the proper observ ance of the day and the benefits sought. While the subject is s®or Mm. Our attracting the at tention of those states Btill possessing great areas of natural timber, it Jis dou bly important to the state of South Da kota, practically devoid of natural tim ber, and within which artificial forests are readily produced by the aid of exper ience and skill. It has been written that he who plants a tree has not lived in vain. Its shades delight and its branches protect comi-jg generations. The nation and the state alike, by legislation, en courage tree culture. It is for the peo ple to decide, and they should bring to the work the energy which it deserves, Done at Pierre, the capital, this 3d day of April, 1891. Artir'k C. MelletTe, Governor.
