Notwith standing that neglect the money has been paid the various companies as the law contemplated,until the last legisla tive session when it was decided that no further appropriation should be made until a specific fund for the purpose was created. Acting upon that legisla tive enactment Gov. Mellette refuses to sign warrants for the pro rata amounts of the two per cent, appropriation which had formerly been made. The matter was taken to the supreme court and an opinion has been handed down sustain ing the governor's action. This news will be very disappointi ng to the firemen of the state who feel that they are fully entitled to the money thus refused them. The next legislature will right the wrong beyond doubt. The Sioux Falls correspondent of the Sioux City Journal under date of the 21st makes some very reckless prognos tications in regard to the coming delega tion to the national convention and also in regard to state officers. The usual Sioux Falls selfishness crops out regard less of consequences,or the voice Borne state absorbing Sioux of the people. According to this correspond ent certain persons in office are to be not only the delegates to the national con vention but the candidates for reelection to position or other. It is this tendency to play into the hands of those in power without regard to the wishes of the people or the qualifications of many good men outside of office in the state, that brands this correspondent as a time-server and sycophant. It would be much better for the party if he would raise his voice in protest of such methods and relegate this whole matter to the delegates of the people in convention U3 sembled who will be more likely to choose men fresh from the people and representing their latest views. There is nothing at stake whatever in the choice of delegates to the national con vention and it seems strange that pro fessional politicians should be the only ones mentioned for the place. Besides the whole view is tinctured with the Falls idea a combina tion of anti-prohibition forces and coun ties..This small style of politics is very disgusting to the average republican, and it is to be hoped it The midwinter will be upeet at session of the South Dakota Press association met at Huron laat Thursday and Friday and had a very profitable session. New constitu tion and by-laws were adopted by the body and new standing committees raised for the better division of the work. What created more than ordinary interest was the investigating of charges, or rather rumors, of schemes in con nection with the formation of the new Publisher's Printing company, which is being established in the interests of the publishers of South Dakota. Before the association would have anything to do with, or endorse the plan of the new company it appointed a oommittee of three to make thorough investigation and report back. This committee, not favorable to the plan and methods of the organization as had been reported, examined the books,stock, records and officers of the company on every matter of detail connected,with ite organization and present condition,and were enabled to make a" very favorable report,heartily endorsing the object and plau of the Publishers Printing company. The re port was unanimously adopted by the association and together with the new constitution and by-laws, and the pro ceedings in full will be published and made public. A resolution was also passed recem mending the governor to secure,if possible, a special se ssion of the legislature to make an appropriation for the World's Fair.

Lorrs, Feb. 33.—The year that marks,the quadro-eentennial of the in trepid voyagers on the shores of an un known land, and the day upon which all loyal Americans pay homage to that father of his country who was first in war, first in jteace and first in the hearts of his countrymen,has been signalized by the greatest gathering of represent atives of disaffected political elements that the world has ever seen. The be wigged patriots who met in the carpen ters'hall of the Quaker City to bring into existence a new order of things, were nominal in comparison. The chartists, that more than a century lat er, gathered from the four quarters of of the fatherland to protest against the continuance monarchlal abuses: and their successors, under whose auspices the gates of Hyde park were leveled to the ground, were but a forecast of lat ter-day radicalism and new world ad vance in the ethics of civilization. In the throng that occupied the plat form in the Exposition hall there were men and women who hare made their impress upon the social page of the age. Francis Willard was there as a representative of opposition to the rum power and the saloon. The venerable A. T. Streator sat as champion of the anti-monopolists and Represen tative Taubeneck,of Illinois,and Robert Schilling, of Wisconsin, in behalf of the People's party. Grand Master Work man Powderly with Secretary H*yes and Congressman Davis occupied front seats as the delegates from the Knights of Labor. W. A. Carsey, of the New York City Anti-monopolist league sat side by side with Judge Snyder, of Kansas. In others of the front seats were Post of Georgia, Washburn of Massachusetts, Representative Taube neck of Illinois, General John B. Weaver of Iowa. L. L. Polk of North Carolina, Congressman Livingstone, C. A. Rankin and Ignatims Donnelly, the Minnesota sage. Back of these were the rank and file of the various delega tions, the credentials of which repre sented nearly every state and territory in the Union. Whether or not the dis cordant elements could effect a coalition upon grounds that would be satisfac tory to all concerned was the question that had engrossed one the consideration of the leading spirits of all the movements for the preceeding twenty-four hours. As an outcome the draft of a platform was prepared which deals only with tbe question of the land, finance, and transportation, and leaves all other questions severely alone. This pro grame is not agreeable to certain ele ments of the delegations, and as a re sult the entire platform will be fought out on the floor of the convention. The gathering was called to order at 2 p. m. by Ben Terrell, of Texas. An address of welcome was delivered by C. P. Waldridge, of St. Louis, and responses made by L. L. Polk, on behalf of the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial union, T. V. Powderly and Ignatius Donnelly. The appointment of committees occu pied the most of the day, and the real business of the convention has not yet begun. Prior to tbe convention some of the leaders of the different elements that make up tbe gathering expressed them selves. T. V. Powderlv said: "The repre sentatives of the Knights WHAT CONGRESS WILL D«. rsnsait sfWhat Our bearing of of tin- Labor are here in obedience to a resolution of the general assembly of the order directing that we attend the conference and as sist in preparing a political platform upon which we can all stand. We are here, therefore, in a representative ca pacity and while there is nothing oblig atory on the members of the Knights of Labot to endorse our action it is but le gitimate to suppose they will. We will certainly formulate a platform includ ing all national points of vital interest on which we can harmonize, and then, as a natural sequence, all the industrial organizations participating in the con ference will support, in the coming elec tion that political party which comes the nearest to adopting our platform. While I do not hope for either of the old parties to adopt our platform,I "am lor giving them all the show im the ^ORLD for them to be with as, There is but little doubt but what we can har monize on the three great questions of the hour, viz., land, transportation and money, but still if trouble should oome up I believe that a majority the dele gates are actuated by a spirit of conces sion and conciliation. For an instance, while the Knights of Labor demand that the government shall own the rail roads they are willing, if this does not meet the views of the convention, to accept a clause calling for govern mentcontrol of J1"01"!®, for this would at least Le a step in THE right di rection. In regard to the money ques tion, we want a sound, flexible curren cy, issued by the government without the intervention of banks, and in suffi cient quantities to do the business of tbe country. Having no silver, I fro opinion to express on the metal." Nobl* S««ata a Moaopely. WASHINGTON, Feb. 2s.— Scretarjr Noble has stated that he would not ap prove the Washburn bill incorporating the Yellowstone National Park com pany without making the members ac quainted with its character.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 1'3.—The Mr. Chandler has intimated that he desires to call up Senator Palmer's res olution in regard to the election of sen ators by the people. With the probable return of Mr. Hoar to his seat in the senate action by the committee on the judicial nominations of Judge Woods, of Indiana, and others, upon which a strong fight in executive session is in evitable, may be anticipated. Ia th* House. There has been no order Di business arranged for the house for this week, but it is reasonably certain that the Craig-Stewart contested election case of Pennsylvania and the Indian appropri tion bill will be disposed of if no other measures are reached. Mr. O'Ferral will call up the Craig-Stewart affair on Tuesday. As soon as the election case is out of tho way,Mr. Peel will ask the house to resume consideration of the Indian appropriation bill which is now the unfinished business. Friday, under the rules, is private bill day and will probably be occupied in considering measures of the private calendar. FIRE IN A BANK. Tho Laks City Bank u Otkw Fir ma Barasd Oat.

There "will undoubtedly be considerable debate on its provisions. A bill to provide a government building for every post office where the annual receipts exceed $3 ,000 has been made the special order for this we.?'v,but it is not likely that it will be taken up for a certainty for some little time. 3®.—The Lake City Bank block was gutted by fire.

The taking of subscriptions began immediately and in a short IVM the entire $B0,000 was pledged. VUUWurld'I Fair Grounds. ^CHICAGO.
