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, would say that hitherto the genera educational law has fixed the time for elections in cities, eto., at general elec tion thereof that there being no such provision in^the 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the corporate organization thereof, would permit the present school township and district officers to hold over until superceded by those elected in June next.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 DOLLAXD. The Xf w 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 differenoe 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 notice 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 notice to purchaser or mortgagee. The final decision in these two important matters is of vital impor tance to settlers and others having in terest 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 of the title cannot be questioned. Weather Bulletiau Huron dispatch, 7: The following paragraph appears in the weather crop bulletin for North and 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, which has been furht •r delayed by the prevailing cold weath er since. Everything, however, appears to be in readiness for seeding to become general aa soon as warmer weather occurs. From nearly all sections, especially in South Dakota, the ground is reported in excellent condition for the reception of seed as soon as free from the influence of the recent cold weather,and amply moist for all present needs. Many correspond ents /eport that the prospects for an early "setting" and sprouting of Btnall grains was probabty|i|iever better because of the moist condition of the ground. The snow of Sunday and Monday had almost entirely disappeared by Tuesday night, and all kinds of stock are feeding uninterruptedly on the range. The White Terror of Prance. In the eight days that form La Sem&ina 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. Tho Bonapartist Gen. Gallifet. with a cigar between his teeth and a cruel smila on his lips, would have laurbedto scorvso slow and mild an instrument, as tile guillotine. In the Bastion 43 of the Paris fortifications he caused a deep trench to be dug, and, standing 300 prisoners in front, mowed them down with mitralleuses of (latling 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. 1 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 hi* hag# and yet both survived. AJtBOR DAT. (ioveriar Mellette AnnonneeM That It Will Oeeur on May I—Me Mure to Plant a 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 btatisticb pertaining to the impor tance of the problem of the world's fu ture 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' erri power, in aid of the proper observ ance of the day and the benefits sought While the subject is attracting the at tention of those states still 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 coming 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.
