Dakota Press association will meet at

If rumors from Washington are to be
believed, war with Chili seems probable.
This is unfoitunate in the extreme.
There is no doubt so far as the United
States is concerned just cause for war, as
Qhili has utterly disregarded interna
tional courtesy, law and rig,ht. She has
*lso insulted, mal-treated and even mur
dered American sailors, and persistently
refuses to give a just account of the af
fair, indemnify the injurde. and punish
the guilty among her own people. Our
government has treated the Chilians
with the utni3et courtesy and leniency,
feeling that they were, perhaps, unduly
excited over the events of their recent
revolution to maintain control of them
selves or to speedily lay aside the ill
feeling they entertained toward Ameri
cans for the neutral position they as
sumed during the revolutionary struggle
is Chili. But President Harrison had
hoped that in due time conservatism
would prevail, and when orderly govern
ment was restored the guilty parties
Would be punished and due apology and
•tnends made to the United States peo
ple. But in all this Chili has signally
feiled and refuses to make a frank, open
oonfession of her misdeeds. Thic is
characteristic of Chilian canning and
greed. There is nothing so lacking in
Chilian character as stability and con
science. These are the great need of the
oountry, and if it should be necessary
for the United States to drub a little of
tbis into them, it is to be hoped Uncle
Sam will do it in effective style. Chili is
j| large country—naarly 1500,000 square
Miles—but thinly settled, except along a
part of the coast, her population being a
little over 3,000,(XX). Her coast defenses
are not strong, but she has a lively little
navy with the most approved armament
of modern times. It would be an un
equal war and for this reason the United
States is loth to force it upon her inso
lent and plucky sister republic. Owing
to the distance it would more than prob
ably be long and costly but cost what it
may, if President Harrison finds its nec
essary to vindicate national honor, he
will find every American of whatever
party or creed, ready to support him.

Pierre special, Sioux City Journal, 18:
The president, general manager and a
number of other members of the world's
fair commissioners were in Pierre to-day
consulting with the governor in regard
to calling an extra session. The com
mission offered to guarantee $5,000 of
the expense of the session. The govern
or has refused to go any further than
his former offer. He will call the ses
sion if two-thirds of the members come
without expense to the state. Gov.
Mellette does not think the commission
has yet proposed a plan whereby they
will be successful in raising the funds,
and the governor is not backward in say
ing so. To the Journal correspondent
to-day the governor said:
"The principal effort made by the com
mission since it was organized has been
to have an extra session of the legisla
ture called. This plan I think is very
impracticable. In tbe first place none of
the other states which failed to make
appropriations think of the idea of call
ing the legislature together again after
they once had the chance to pass an
appropriation and failed to do so. Then
again lr the legislature were assembled
in t-
there is not much possibil
it) ..c. passing the appropriation, as it
will require a two-thirds vote to do
"The most practicable way, I think, to
have raised the money would have been
the plan proposed at the first world's
fair meeting at Yankton. That plan
was to have formed a big stock company
and sold the stock. There are plenty of
men in the state who have confidence in
the future of the state, who would have
subscribed wittt the faith that some
future legislature would pay them back.
This plan would probably have carried
at Yankton had not Bome of the leaders
of the alliance been present and opposed
the plan. Those leaders of tbe alliance
who were present professed to be friend
ly to the plan of raising the money by
public subscription. This plaa was
finally adopted. How have the alliance
men suuwij their friendliness? They
went home and after the commission
started out to carry out this plan they
have gone to work and hindered the
commisflio:i in every way they oould.
Loucks, in the Ruralist, has been the
leader and he has endeavored to throw
cold water on any plan for making an
exhibit. These alliance leaders seem to
feel that the continuance of their party
hinges on keeping up the calamity howl.
No matter what anyone desires to do to
keep up the prosperity of the state, they
oppose it.
"I have in view a plan which I think
could be successfully carried out to have
South Dakota represented at the fair.
It is as follows: Go to the Harney Peak
Tin Mining company and get them to
agree to put up one side of a building on
South Dakota,s ground at the fair oyt of
block tin. Their big tin mill will be
turning out tin in a few month* and
they could do this. Then go to the big
Jasper Quarrying company at Sioux
Falls and get them to donate their build
ing stone for another side of a building.
Then go to the quarrymen around Hot
Springs and have them donate their
stone of variegated colore for the third
side of the building. For the fourth
side of the building have the cement
companies at Yankton donate material.
The railroad companies could easily be
secured to haul all this material to Chi
cago free of charge. The material used
by the various companies could be re
turned to them after the fair was over.
They could easily dispose of it in Chica
go for all it had cost them, and the ad
vertising they would receive would pay
them a hundred times the cost. The
building would not have to be large but
it should be designed by the boat
architectural skill in the country. It
should be something that would attract
the attention of the whole world. The
material of which it would be composed
would be unique, and if the design in
which it was built was something dif
ferent from the r^neral run I can im
agine nothing that could be more beauti
ful and at the same time in itself adver
tise our advantages to the whole world.
I have in mind that the building could
be so constructed that upon the third
floor could be arranged the {dace for the
reoeption of visitors. A roof could be
constructed over thiB something after
the Japanese style of architecture.
Leading up to this reception room could
be a wide staircase, and along this stair
case could be displayed the various pro
ducts of our state. Every one who
visited the fair, I think would want to
go up on top of this building and if they
did this they oould not but help see our
wonderful resources, which should be
displayed in the most artistic and at
tractive manner on all sides.
If the world's fair oommisaion could
go ahead and get such a building erected
I will guarantee that they will have no
trouble in securing plenty of funds to see
that our products are gotten together.
The legislature which meets next winter
would no doubt be willing to make a
liberal appropriation to carry out the
'The commission now has no definite
plan before it, and without something
definite it cannot expect to awake the
enthusiasm of the people and get them
to contribute money.'
Tbe Apparition ID
Some years ago a young man came to
Chicago from Germany. His father had
cut him off from his annuity. He lived
in the same house where I lived. He
finally obtained a place in one of the big
grain elevators here. I do not know
what the place was except that he had
some thing to do on the top floor, away
up under the roof. Several men were
employed with him in the same place.
One day while he was dusting he sud
denly stopped and asked his assistants
who that nicely dressed old man was
that was stanaing back ther^ by th#
shaft. Strangers are never allowed in
these big elevators, and to see one there
well dressed was enough to excite com
ment. His companions looked in the di
rection indicated and said they saw no
one. He insisted, and when they laugh
ed at him he went to the place where he
saw the figure standing. On his ap
proach it vanished.
The young man fainted. He recov
ered and then asked his companions to
make a note of the occxirrence, the date
and the time of day. He said the figure
he saw was that of his father. In
twelve days he received a letter from
the old country telling him of his father's
death. The date and time agreed with
the date and time of the occurrence I
have described. The letter informed
him that his father had forgiven him
and remembered him in his will. He
returned to the fatherland, got his por
tion of the estate lind is living there
now. You may say what you please,
but I have never felt like scoffing from
the time 1 heard this story. The spirit
of that boy's fathefr appeared.to him on
the top floor of that elevator.—Eugene
Field in Chicago News.

The following satirical prodnotkm,
purporting to show how the Russian
court travels, appears in the German
papers in the form of a letter from a
Russian court functionary to his friend
in Berlin: "Dear Friend—The following

It is quite uncertain when we leave Co

to Doable Liability—Other
SrmxG VALLEY, Minn., Jan. SO.—A
most peculiar and frightful quadruple
accident has just occurred in this city.
Frank Ostrander, who, with his wife,
lives an isolated spot ou Mahood'B
creek, in Fillmore township, had the
misfortune to cut his leg badly while
chopping in the timber. Kind friends
helped him to his home and put him to
bed. That evening his wife, who was
in a delicate condition, went to his barn
to milk the cow. This duty had usually
been performed by the husband, and
the cow was unused to the care of a
woman's hand. Before she had half
finished the process of milking the ani
mal resented this unusual attention and
kicked the woman clear across the barn,
almost killing her. Half dead and un
able t» walk, she crawled through the
snow and ice to the house, where un
aided and alone,she gave birth to twins.
In her great agony, without a helping
hand near tov give proper aid in
h^r hour of distress, she lay on the
floor and saw her two little darlings
die. The burden of grief was too great
for the mother to bear, and alone in
that silent room, with her husband near
by but unable to move, she, too, gave
way under the strain and took the long
journey of death shortly after her little
The father, in his frenzy of grief,
could stand the scene no longer, and in
his efforts to rise from his bed to go to
his wife's assistance started his injured
leg to bleeding, and before he could
reach their side had bled to death. The
scene presented to those who came to
the house when it was too late is be
yond description, and no words in the
lexicon of fatalities can -do it justice.
Important Dccliioa Htnd'Ctt DOWD by
the Minnesota Supreme Court.
ST. PAUL, Jan. 20.—Among the decis
ions filed in the supreme court was- one
which will have a far-reaching effect
upon all corporations in this state ex
cept those organized for strictly manu
facturing or mechanical purposes. It is
the outcome of the failure of the
corporation of Seymour, Sabin A
Co. in 1884. This corporation was or
ganized for the purpose of general man
ufacturing, merchandising and lumber
ing. The Minnesota Thresher company
having bought up claims against Sey
mour, Sabin & Co., sued the stockhold
ers of the latter, claiming they are
doubly liable under section 3, article 10
of the state constitution. The stock
holders were quite numerous and all
were sued in this same suit with John
F. Meagher.
The case against Meagher et al was
based on the ground that Meagher et al,
being stockholders in Seymour, Sabin &
Co.,were "doubly liable" on their stock,
that is to say, that after having paid in
full for their stock they were liable to
pay as much more towards paying the
debts of the corporation after its assets
had been exhausted. The supreme
court holds in effect that in this case
that the stockholders in every corpora
tion existing under the laws of this
state, including railroads and others,
are doubly liable (except in manufac
turing or mechanical companies) and
that no laws passed by the legislature
limiting or regulating that liability
of any validity whatever.

Coal Creek Miner® Hare a Kind of Shalt
Dance About the Stockade a.
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 20. —About
a. nr. nearly 2,000 miners gathered o«
the hillsides about the Coal Creek stock
ade, and kept up a constant tire of small
arms, and he4d a semi-civilized ghost
dance about the two small block houses
which contained 100 state troops. The
miners came so close to the military
pickets that an exchange of shots was
indulged in. None of the soldiers were
hit, and jt is thought that the miners
escaped without injury. About two
weeks ago a soldier accidentally shot
and killed a convict, and since then the
miners have become arrogant and ag
gressive. Further trouble is expected.

HIS Year for Montana Mines.
HELENA, Mon., Jan. 20.—The year
1891 was a remarkable one for the min

than one-sixth of the mining companies
that publish their dividends her mines
paid more than one-fourth of the profits
received from the industry in the United
States. With her largest copper pro
ducer shut down for about nine months
Montana yet produced one-third of the
dull-colored metal of the United States.
During the year her mines declared div

of the three latest victims, but all of the
