Meeting of the Republican State Central Committee in this Oity To-morrow W^Iadison Will Put in a Olaim for the State Oonvention. To-morrow afternoon ths republican state central committee of South Dako ta will meet in Madison to determine the time and place of holding the next state convention for the nomination of state officers, congressmen and president ial electors. There will probably be forty of those gentlemen present and we understand that a ride will be taken out to Lake Madison where Landlord Mil ham will entertain the visitors with a light repast and show them the beauties and conveniences of the Chautauqua grounds. They are a fine body of men, of large personal interest in the state, leaders in politics as well as in industrial pursuits and will receive a deserving welcome from the people of Madison As regards ths location of the next state convention. Madison has a claim which she ought to urge and will, with all the energy and earnestness at her command to secure it. Our city has once or twice before made application for this honor and has stepped aside for otherwise less favored localities, but now, that there appears no competing points as deserving of this recognition or as centrally located as Madison her claim seems to be undisputed from any logical standpoint. Unlike most of the aspirants for this honor Madison has never had a state convention, and yet nearly every social organization in the state has held its state gathering here with heartiest endorsements of accom modations, accessibility, and treatment The state convention could not fail to find it likerwise if it met here. We have hotel accommodations alone for one thousand people, and outside of these Madison has on more occasions than one, taken care of five hundred more. This city knows how to throw open its doors to the stranger when occasion requires. We have city hall, court house rooms, opera bouse, auditorium, and if need be lecture rooms of churches, for eaucus and Committee MYee, t&e daily Chautauquan will be publish ed during the assembly. The above statement is made in reply to a question repeatedly directed to the publisher by numerous friends." It does seem as if Mr. Mease will never tire of credit,inp nis questionable schemes to the demand of "numerous friends." To one unac quainted with the condition of things it would seem that Mr. Mea^e is the creature of "numerous friends." That "numerous friends" are constantly in at tendance. The facts of the case are, the Chautauquan is nothing more nor less than a catch-penny fake. A fake de signed to bleed the business men of Madison. Last year the Chautauquan came before the business men under false colors as "the official paper of the Chautauqua association." Under this title the business men were deluded in to giving it a limited amount of patron age, under protest, however. Long be fore the Chautauqua assembly was con cluded, the officers of the association disclaimed any connection whatever with the piratical sheet. This year the officers of the association have peremp torily forbidden Mr. Mease to use the line "official paper," etc., in connection with the publication. The proposed daily Chautauquan is a fake from beginning to end. It has no desire nor intention to serve the public. It is only one more of Mease's schemes to sap money from Madison business men for worthless ad vertising. The piratical sheet is design ed to run three weeks and then crawl into its hole. It has no field. There is no demand for it. It is a fake. Money invested in its advertising columns is money thrown away. Patronize estab lished newspapers that labor throughout the year to ssrve the public. rooms. The motor line finely equipped as it is this year with ample coaches and motive poweV will run every half hour if necessary and transport the public to and fro from the Chautauqua grounds and the city, the two making virturally one places so far as convenience is considered, and there is no place in the state better prepared to af ford the delegates every convenience and pleasure. Our railroad facilities in every direction make this the most central nomt, for meeting whinh will Vw» an im portant consideration to the large farmer delegations which will attend this year in the saving of fare, and having the train dispatcher's office at thin place, trains will be run at any time of the day to accommodate the delegates either coming or going. The passenger officials of the road have already assured us of this. A fund to meet the incidental expenses of the oonvention is already guaranteed, and a committee of Madi son's strongest citizens will be selected to present the city's claims to the state central committee. Every citizen in terested in Madison's renown and pro gress should take a pride in securing this state meeting and there will be no question of our success. Madison isi entitle*! to this convention and by a proper effort to show her claims to the committee to-morrow she will gst it.? An Iowa Town Scorched. Sioux CITY, June 15.—The town of Moville, twenty-two miles east of here, was almost wiped out by fire during the night. Twenty-two business houses and several residences destroyed. The lose is *60,000. fee Houses lltovrn Down. STURGEON BAY, Wis., June 15.—The seven large ice houses belonging to the Union Ice company, of Chicago, and situated in this city at the mouth of the bay, were blown down during a terrible gale from the southeast. The loss will be considerable. A TOWN BURNING. One Hundred Ha tiding* Iettroyo4 and ffce Fire Still Raging. PITTSBURG, June 15.—Word has just been received here that the town of Chi cora, B\itler county, is burning down. One hundred buildings have already burned and the whole towa will fee de stroyed. Fire Under Control. PITTSBURG, Pa., June 15.—A Chicora telegram dated at •ta. m. .says that at that hour the fire was under control. The flames originated in McGinley's res taurant on Slippery Rock street from an nnlmowtl aanaa Slavery In the Pacific. That slavery still exists in the Pacific Is evidenced by the fact that the steamer Moneserrat is fitting out for a blackbird cruise, and will sail shortly for Gilbert island, whence it will carry a hold full of natives to work cm the Guatemala coffee plantations. All this is to be done under the guise of an equitable contract. Last September the brig Tahite, load ed with 100 Gilbert islanders, and noto riously a slaver, was blown off its course and put in at Dukej bay. Learning that it was likely to be seized, its captain put hurriedly to se^and the next that was heard of it was Wtrenrsighted bot tom np off the coast, all its crew and cargo having perished. The same have planned the Moneserrat's slaving cruise, hoping to recoup themselves. There will be no difficulty in getting a cargo, as agents at the island are now at woA inducing ths natives sign awitJMtS Washington Star. The »w Treasury KotM. Perhaps the principal object of thf ra^ vision of the* United Suites paper money is to make the backs of the notes more open, that is, less covered with the en graving, so that the silk fibers shall be iinore distinctly visible. The distinctive paper now in use no longer has the two threads of silk run ning longitudinally through the note, but in their place are two stripes, each half an inch wide or so, of short red and blue silk fibers scattered thjckly in the paper, in such manner that tkey show only on the reverse of the bill. These two fiber stripes practically di vide thq note into three sections of aboyt equal size, an«l this feature of fiber in the paper is held to be an almost abso lute safeguard against successful coun terfeiting. But that is only one of sev eral devices employed to insure ths inviolability of the currency. Each note has an entirely separate design, the work of which is so open as to show readily any error Of an attempt ed counterfeit, and no portion of the design is repeated on the same note so that no small part could be engraved by a skillful operator and then duplicated by mechanical processes to fill any amount of space, as has been the case with some of the previous "paper mon ey" of the government. The geometrical lathe work of ths new designs is said to be the most ex quisite and complicated ever executed, and such as to utterly baffle any at tempt at its illicit reproduction.—Paper World. Rongh on the Snakea. Snake stories are always in order in the spring, and the latest one comes from an interior town in Ohio, where the heat from the stove awakened the reptiles and they commenced to fall to the floor from holes in the ceiling. John Thompson, who lives in the Cheat river country, was in the city yesterday buy ing provisions for a lumber camp. He tells a tale that is not unreasonable and one can readily believe it. The mountains along the Cheat are famous for their blacksnakes, and they can be seen at any time during the day in the summer sunning themselves on the rocks. Mr. Thompson says when the weather suddenly broke up about April 1 and led a number of people to throw off their underclothes, the black snakes awoke with a start, rubbed the'r eyes and crawled out on the rocks .o stretch themselves. The sun was so warm that many of them ventured far awav from their winter homes, and when it suddenly got cola agap the snakes couldn't get back. Mr. Thomp son claims he got tired of killing black snakes which were so stiff that they couldn't move. They were stretched out on the stones, and were at the mercy of the lnmltermen, who amused them selves making the flat heads of the snakes more flat.
