Of the other twenty the fortunes have been obtained mainly in real estate, railroads and banking, lines which draw directly from the people Hurbnlte, 10: A gentleman Who at tended court at Ft. Pierre, held by Judge Fuller a few days since, remarked at the Depot Hotel the other day: "I was not a little surprised to see among the jurors three ex-confederate soldiers and one negro and the negro was foreman of the jury."

Ctrl Gerner, of Iroquois, was re-elect ed grand master workman of the A. O. U. W. of the Dakotas at the session of the grand lodge in Sioux Falls Wednes day.

The next meeting of the grand lodge will be held at Hot Springs, in the Black Hills. Newspaper men are in lack cm the ir rigation question. O. T. Williams, an irrigation engineer of Aberdeen offers to give them all the information they want on the subject in relation to the Jim Rivier valley, and this without charge. Well, that would be encourag ing under other circumstances, but at present it would be necessary to pay a Dakota man for his time to get him to listen to. a talk on irrigation. Sioux Falls Press: Judge Andrews of the Brookings circuit has decided that county superintendents must be paid accordidg to the law of 1891, which in some cases amounts to a diminuation of compensation. He holds that the re lation between the county superintend ent and the county or between any public offioer elected or appointed, and the state or county, is not a contract and that the provision of the consti tution of the state of South Dakota, declaring that the compensation of no public officer shall be increased or dimished during his term of office, ap plies to such officers only as receive salaries from the state treasury toat is, state officers proper, and hence that the plaintiff in this action, and all of the county euperintendenta of South Dakota are.entitled to a salary and compensation under the new law, which in this case is to the effect that it decreases the salary of the county superintendent during his term of office. 4" The new world's fair commission met st Huron on the evening of the 10th inst, and organized by ^electing from their number the following permanent officers: 8. Q. Ochsenreiter of Webster president Chas. E. Hi new of Woonsocket vice president, W. W. Taylor of Pierre! treasurer Oliver Gibbs of Ramsey, sec retary. A resolution was passed author izing the president aud secretary to con duct the canvass for funds on the new plan, deferring the appointment of agen cies for collection until a future meeting or until sufficient sum of money is raised And the money contributed by the peo ple shall not be applied to the payment of salaries of officers now or hereafter to 1 it-' f, I be appointed but shall be used only to meet the detail and necessary expenses of the work. It was agreed that not lees than $20,000 be raised within the next thirty days, and that in towns or dis tricts where there is no trustee the peo ple are asked to move in the matter and raise the money. The money is to b© used only in making as comprehensive and creditable exhibit of the history, re sources, products and development of South Dakota will afford with th# means at their oommand. The news papers are relied upon to give the widest publicity possible to their plans. Iowa democracy has made a bold bid for the presidency. At the state conven tion, Wednesday, not a single reference was made in either speeches or platform to the name of Cleveland, all such refer ence being studiously avoided, and the name of Horace Boies was endorsed in fulsome language for the nomination to the presidency. The delegates had evi dently been selected to this convention with great care and were thoroughly in. structed in the formality that was to be observed on all matters pertaining to the convention so that nothing would detract from the complete halo which was to be thrown around Boies. Even the free silver proclivities of the Iowa democrats so pronounced vintil Boies loomed up as a candidate, was thoroughly conoealed in an anti-silver plank which is a direct bid for the capitalistic forces of Cleveland in the eastern states. Whatever of dissim ulation and hypocrisy is necessary to capture Cleveland support, has been re sorted to and the real principles of ths party are only a secondary consideration in the eager reach for party honors. Io wa democrats will be wiser before many months. A Queitlon to Pottle Om. He was a 4'likely" looking Afro-Amer ican, and as he boarded the elevated train at Twenty-eighth street attracted no small amount of attention. He be took himself to one of the cross seats, facing the rear of the car. As he set tled himself comfortably, one of -the two male passengers seated opposite said to his companion in what was evidently intended to be an undertone, but which was nevertheless plainly au dible, "Do your people permit colored folks to ride in first class compartments in public conveyances?' What the re ply to the question may have been will never be known. As for the occasion of the query, he did not betray by so much as the movement of a muscle or the qniver of an eyelash that he had over heard what had teen said. But just before Bleecker street was reached he straightened himself up and addressed the inquirer. "Dis yere ain't no question of the Fiftyent' 'mend UiCuts.n noltli "X kaM«ro ilgliti |loljl dat me and my race has all de rights ob de white peoples to ride in dese yer keere so long as we got de money and 'haves ourselves. So dat ain't de ques tion. But what I, would like to have you gemmens tell is dis, How kin a man be colored when he's born so?" And as he stalked out of the car the passengers ail looked at one another and wondered if they had been given a new problem in socio-political economy to puzzle over.—New York Times. "Where "Red T*p«" Counts. Said one of the oldest and most suc cessful legal practitioners of the city bar to one of his rising young students a short time ago: "My dear young fellow, never fail to remember that in the successful career of a lawyer there is no one item so important to liis reputation as 'red tape.' You may smile at this remark, but it is as true as Holy Writ, and the proper use of it in binding up a legal document has saved many a court itaper from being handed back for perfection or revision to its legal sponsor. In ear lier life I practiced in the court of one of the most particular judges in thw commonwealth. I presented, as I be lieved, a well prepared report which I asked for confirmation, and to my sur prise the judge unfolding it and looking it over found a hundred and one faults and directed me to prepare anpther one, 'but in better form,' as he said. I was utterly nonplussed. "My time was so limited it was utter ly impossible. An idea stlnck me. That night in my office I put on a showy out side wrapper, with a hand indorsement of the title, with the most liberal supply of the widest red tape that I could find iu graceful 1o\vs. The next morning I nervously presented it again. The judge received it smiling, adding: 'Thatis the correct way all pajKTs for the court should lie drawn up.' There's nothing like red tape.'"—Philadelphia Press. The Governor'* Quill*. The governor of this commonwealth signs every bill with a quill. This isn't because he is fonder of that particular kind of pen, but it is rather in obedience to a well established custom that has ob tained with the chief magistrates of the last decade. There are always a few members of the legislature that have the collector's passion, and requests are regularly received by Private Secretary Roads from lawmakers and others for pens that the governor has used for signing bilk. Accordingly dozens of the?e quills are purchased ever so often, and the governor makes his signature each time with a new pen, which is carefully preserved and set aside for the next quill hunter that calls.—Boston Globe. •.

OaLOStABO flraxos, Colo., May 18.— Twenty thousand men and women, rep-' resenting the union printers and the newspaper writers of more than half of the commonwealths of the Union as well as all the diversified interests of the cen$emxi^l state assembled on a broad plate are on the foothills of the Rocky Mountain riuige and participated in the exercises th^ dedicated the mag nificent structure that is henceforth to furnish an asylum to the aged and in firm of the typographical fraternity.

Sprague, and for the business commun ity of Colorado by Hon. H. G. Hunt, president of the chamber of commerce. When Mr. Childs arose to reply the enthusiasm of the assemblage reached a climax. Visibly affected by the warmth and sincerity of the greeting, Mr. ChiMg. in low and trembling tones,made his first speech since his departure from the Quaker city. He said: "From boy hood I have been more or lew intimately associated with the members of the printers' craft, and knowing it so long and well I have naturally sympathized with it (cries of 'you have') and what little I have been able to do to express my respect, admiration and affection for it, has honored me more in the ing of it than the craft in the recep tion of it. It is not the printers who ewe me gratitude (applause). The in debtedness is mine. I regret that my dear friend and associate, Mr. Drexel, is not here in person to share with the friendly warmth of your generous greeting. For him, who is here in spirit with me, whose sympathy for all that is so good and noble is so great, as well as for myself, I heartily, earnestly thank you. It is not our deserving, but your generosity, which has made your welcome so impressive and grateful." United States Senator J. H.
