This notoriety can and v ill undoubtedly be put to good ar if the lady's statement is correct, and no one doubts it. She says that she has an offer with a the&tr .. ompany of $300 per week, and a pvrwtUize of tne business, which by the way U-j lady is candid enough to my that lo«e not lelieve that thin liberal offer because of her ability, but principally tx- -HU8e of her name." Yankton Press, 20: Hon. H. W. Smith, independent candidate for congress last fall, is in favor of the special session and a world's fair appropriation. Senator Kyle and Mr. Smith ought to have some influence with the independent mem bers of the legislature that is, their counsel ought to out-weigh the counsel of Mr. Loueks, who has been inimical to the matter from the beginning, not -V: because of a fancied idea that the iude pendent party has not been consulted and properly recognized in the make up of the man tgement. As the exchange reader beoomet M» customed to the make-up of the Sioux Falls Gazette, he discoveres that it is a good newspaper, notwithstanding it is trifle off-color in politics. The other Sioux Falls newspapers must look well to their laurels, as the Gazette is tight after them in the matter of news, A large number of copies of the Gazette are taken in this city. Sew York Noflfljr. Recently a statement was published in the New York World that the Four Hundred of that city had been cut down to 150. Ward McAllister, the society leader of the city, makee the following statement in regard to the matter: "The so-called Four Hundred has not been cut down or dwindled to 150 names. The nonsense, don't you know, printed to that effect in the world and some other papers, has made a very bad im pression that will reflect badly against them, you understand. That list of names, you understand, printed on Sun day, did not come from me, don't you see. It is unauthorized, don't you see. But it is accurate ae far as it goes, you understand. "It is incomplets and does injustice, you understand, to many eligible million aires. Think of leaving out such names, don't you know, as Chauncey M. Depew, Gen. Alexander S. Weeb, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Cooper, Mr. and Mrs Luther Kountze, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Goelet, Mrs. and Miss Wilson, Miss Greene and many others! Don't you understand, it is absurd, senseless. "Let me explain, don't you know. There are three dinner dances, don't you know, during the season, and the invita tions, don't you see, are issued to differ ent ladies and gentlemen each time, do you understand? So at each dinner dance, you know, are only 150 people of the highest set, don't you know. So, during the season, you see, 400 different invitations are issued. "Wait a moment and I will give you a correct list, don't you know, of the peo ple who from what is known as the Four Hundred. Do you understand it will be authorized, reliable and, don't you know, the only correct list. RUMORED AND DENIED Tfcat the Vanderbilta Har* Itnnd CM* trol of tb« Bfilvrmukse. NEW YORK, Feb. 24.—Rumor it that the Vanderbilt interests have se cured control of the Milwaukee and St. Paul system, and that the grand alliance now includes the Milwaukee and St. Paul, the Northwestern, and the Union Pacific—that is a through line from New York to the Pacific, at Portland and San Francisco. Chauncey M. Depow, when asked as to the truth of the rumor, said there was no truth in it. A special from Chicago says rail road officials in that city do not five much credence to the report. Inactivity la th« Navy. SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 24.—A number of government vessels are still at Mare Island navy yard. The Albatross is now being overhauled and will leave about the middle of March to resurvey the route for the Hawaiian cable. No orders for the departure of the Baltimore or Charleston have been received. Repairs on the Adams will be completed in about a month. The Nipsic's repairs are completed and she will soon go to Port Orchard, the site of the new navv yard on Puget sound. Three months will he required for the repairing of th6 Ranger. SarTsrlag Contract LaL HELENA, Mon., Feb. 34.—W. A. Haven was &iven a contract to survey the definite route of a railroad from Helena to Castle, 115 miles distant. Haven's contract is with the citizen's committee representing the subscribers to the fund of $200,000 by citizens of Helena and Castle to be given the cor poration building the road. Three sep arate syndicates have agreed to float the bonds provided the survey demonstrates that the line can be built for $2,250,000. Mr. Haven is confident the line can be built for less than $2,000,000. He has begun organizing his force, and will be in the field in a few days. A Fake Pare and 8lmpl«. HELENA, Feb. 24.—The story sent out from Hamilton of the fall of a meteor 800 feet across near that place is a lie pure and simple. No such stone fell, and nothing has occurred to give the slightest foundation to such a story. It probably emanated from the same source as the sensational accounts of the finding of the basin of the extinct lake in which was a jetrified sea ser pent sixty feet in length, and the dis covery of a .treat cave in the mountains in which were found the band of hiber nating Indians, the last of the cliff dwellers. BetlaMd CMI frnljfc OTTI MWA, la., Feb. A4.—The Iowa Central promulgated a rate on coal from Centerville to all points in Minnesota. North and South Dakota, making the same n-.tea from Centervill.* and For bu*h as now applies from Ottumwa and Oskalooaa. This is a reduction of 10 cents per ton for the rates that formerly prevailed from C-enterville and For bush, and will enable the large coal mines at these points to greatly increase their output. Aamtulteri by Thugs. BURLINOTON, la., Feb. 24.—A murder out attack that may result in the death of one of the victims was perpetrated at the corner of Locust wad Main streets Saturday evening. August Post, Burlington shopman, was knocked down be-! and robbed and now he lies in a precari any demerit ia the eauae, bat' ous condition. His assailants were i ranr of unknown thun. who Neaped. V "V 'iV ISSrt •*,' ELECTED OFFICERS. The 8t l.ouI Convention Finally Get* Heady to Trauaat Bus! if.-f. Considerable Trouble Otftr Creden tials and a slight Kow Over a Presiding Officer. 1*. I* Pelk Elected Chairman and J. H. Hayes Secretary—The Color Line Avoided. 8t, torn, Feb. 24.—The delegates to to the Alliance convention were slow in getting together, and, to make matters worse, it was announced that, after pretty near an all night session, the committee on credentials was unable to make its repoort. This was explained by the fact that a number of delegates representing organizations not included in the official call had been knocking on the door for recognition, and when the members of the committee sepa rated, well on towards daylight, their work was still incomplete. To while away the momenta of the opening hour, the morning session was given up to a seanoe of Alliance song, in which "Dixie" was mixed with doggrell con cerning Jerry Simpson's socke and the woes of the Georgia and Kansas farm ers. At 10:15 the convention was formally called to orde?, President Cannon asked delegates to receive the report in the spirit it was offered, and not to precipi tate a Kilkenny fight. The report, which was a unanimous one, and cov ered all the states except Georgia, where there is a contest, showed that nearly seven hundred delegates were present under the original call. In addition it was recommended to admit all the edi tors of the reform press, representatives of the National Farmer's League of Maine, of the Union Reform conference, and of the Industrial Alliance. The re port was adopted in spite of the vocifer ous objections of a number of represent atives of the Anti-Monopoly league. This made a total of twenty-two organ izations represented. A Wrangle Over a Cttalraaan. A wrangle for nearly aa hour waa oc casioned by a motion naming Colonel L. L. Polk as permanent chairman which was rushed through without put ting the negative question. This method of doing business was not agreeable to a number of those on the floor, they claiming that the selection was irregular, and that the roll of states should be called. Finally, Mr. Polk re fused to take the gavel. S. F. Norton, of Chicago, forced through a resolution reconsidering the action by which Mrf Polk was elected. Nominations fof chairman were then called for. Mr. Polk was named by half a dozen states, and Kentucky nominated Ben Terrell, of Texas. A rising vote by organiza tions was called for and Mr. Polk was again elected by a nine-tenth's vote. John W. Hayes waa elected permanent secretary, and Powderly read a tele gram from the district assembly of New York pledging support at the polls aa well as funds. At this juncture some body found out that all the officers elected were of the white race, and, as the conference had already informally declared in favor of no color line, this condition of affairs would never do, if the colored vote was to be captured. So Brother Warwick, of Virginia, a dele gate from the Colored Men's alliance, was elected as assistant secretary. A Praviiloaal Stat* CoaamlttM. NEW YORK, Feb. 24.—The oommittee ot fifty protesting Democrats which ap peared in Albany has been dissolved and their places will be taken by the provisional state committee. It is prob able that Chalrea S. Fairchild will be the president of this committee, and it will occupy offices at No. 10 Wall street. 1 CONGRESSIONAL^ Th« S*aat«. WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.—The calender was under consideration immediately after the morning hour in the senate. The bills,being principally small claims, were rapidly disposed of and order of business 149 was quickly reached, being "A Bill to Provide for a Commis sion on the Subject of Alcoholic Liquor Traffic," reported by Mr. Carey from the committee on education and labor with amendment. Mr. Veat, of Missouri, suggested that such an important measure ought not to be put through with only five or six senators in attendance. Mr. Frey, of Maine, remarked that a simiLar bill had passed the senate eight times. Mr. Vest, nevertheless, objected to it* pawing, ao it went over. The HaoM. WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.—Wh^n the hour for the opening of the house ar rived Mr. McMillin was elected to pre side during the absence of the speaker. After the call of committees for reports and the transaction of some routine" business the house on motion of Mr. Catching* adjourned at 12:^0 p. p. Nlntti Jadx*. WASHINGTON, Feb. 24.—The prwrtdent has sent the following nominations to the senate: W. K. Gilbert, of Oregon, to be United States circuit judge for the Ninth judicial circuit. H. H. Smith, of Michigan, to be aa sistaht register of the treasury, vice L. W. Held, resigned. i y Huntiag WolTCfc NOKTHKIKU), v Minn., Feb. 24.—"North- field hunters have at last woke up to the situation, and a party of five, sup plied with dogs and guns, started out of town to wage a fight with the wolves that are reported in such numbers. A piece of woods about two miles south of town is said to be infested with the ra- padoBs animaln," I ,V AFTER MANY YEARS. A Medal Otm to a Brave Soldier ef Um CITII War. Captain Frank D. Baldwin, of tfc» Fifth infantry, U. S. A., is an example of the law's delay, or rather the fed eral govern ment's. He won a medal in won it again or won another in 1864, and receives it now in 1892. It adds not a little to the interest of the tx casion to learn that CapCAPTAIH tain Baldwin has been in the army con tinuously since his enlistment in 1861, and a very large part of the time in ac tive service. On the 5th of October, 1863, Captain Baldwin was in command of a company holding a stockade near Murfreesboro, Tenn. General Wheeler, now a mem ber of congress, attacked it with a force of some thousands, including artillery, yet Captain Baldwin held the stockade for two hours—in fact, until it was de stroyed by the artillery. Again, in 1864, July 20, the Confederates made an as sault, and Captain Baldwin's regiment made a countercharge. He greatly dis tinguished himself and captured the Confederate regiment's flag. The offi cers and men of the company he then led recently petitioned for and congress voted a medal. It is of cannon bronze and bears thiainscription: THE CO*GKE88 I TO CAPT. KHANK 1). 1IAI.DWIK, 5th U.S. InTty, for 1 hstineuished Bravery At the Battle of IViu-h-Tree Creek.Ga., July 3), l!*M. The presentation was made by General Nelson A. Miles at his headquarters, in the Pullman building, Chicago, in the presence of a small company of officers. (General Miles delivered a very interest ing address. Captain Baldwin served with great bravery and ability in several Indian campaigns, but has recently been stationed at army headquarters in Chi cago as inspector of rifle practice. THE OLDEST SETTLER. A* Interesting Chicago Character Who Has Uved Nearly a Century. Chicago's legitimate "oldest settler" is James Lane, although he is so well known that almost everybody in Chicago speaks of him aa Jimmy. Lane plaoe is named for him, and if he lives until 1894 he will have seen a full century. He was born near the line which sepa rates the counties of Cork and Limerick, Ireland, and went to Chicago in 1836. He is of slender build, but vigorous, and lps blue eyes are just as bright as they ever were. Mr. Lane's step is light and springy, and he professes to be able to sprint as fast as many aspiring amateurs of less mature age. He has never known sor row or sickness, he says, and expects to pass his century mark. He has a fund of interesting reminiscences of old timers who are dead. His small fortune was accnjjmlated in the live stock business, in which he embarked soon after his ar rival in Chicago. He was recently pre sented with a gold medal by a German society, in recognition of the fact that he is the "oldest settler." An inscrip tion to that effect, in English and Ger man, adorns the two sides of the token. *Ai tt*en by Dttcal Eye*. Ever since the Duke of Marlborough married an American wife he has been telling 'ie people in England what manner of men were their cousins on this side of the sea. He says the Ameri can millionaires are on this side what the English r.obility are in Great Britain, while the lawyers are to America what the squirarchy is to England. But he thinks along all the American roads the race is fur wealth, and that constant struggle keeps people from being bored. The American woman he finds more dif ferent than anything else. He confesses that she is an always new source of de light. The duchess is to be congratu lated on having so appreciative a hat band. Points on Spring Faftliion*. One thing can IXJ promised this spring, and that is that there will be less search ing after masculine effects in dress for young ladies. Everything points to a reign of furbelow, ribbon and flounce— of all manner of soft, flimsy but delicate and womanly little trifles that make womankind seem to be angels and fair ies and other ethereal things. The spenser or French waist with the bishop sleeves will be the usual style of all wash gowna, with some very slight modifications, such as yoke* or V shaped necks with falling ruffles. Wash dresses should be made with tucks or loose ruffles. Feather •tiching in white floes will be very pop ular as a trimming. No buttons will be aeen. Tli* CtaMml af the Otdw «f Father Anderledy, the general of the Order of Jesuits, who recently died, waa called at the Vatican the 'Black Pope." He was in early life engaged in mission ary \york in Wisconsin, and this circum stance Vad* some of th'we fond of specu lating as to what the future will bring forth to think it not improbable that when Pope XIII shall die an Ameri can may be called to the papal see. No •accessor has yet beaa efr mn tqFsthwr Anderledy's plaea. N v N F. D. BALDWIN. In the latter part of the forties Mr. Lane was an al derman for three terms, but he tired of politics from the office holders' stand jKjint, and since that time, al though h6 has never failed to deposit his ballot JAMKS LANE. at every election, he has always refused 'to allow his name to be used in connec tion with any place of trust or profit with which liis fellow citizens have de hired to honor him.
