And yet "Mack" w an old bachelor. Mitchell Republican, 19: The result little Hurry up at Brookidgs college seems to have seated President McLouth and hie particular friends more firmly than evir in the control of that institution. Even the wishes of the gov ernor and the senate were overridden rough-shod to carry out the ante-invea tigatioo deals. Pierre Capital, 18: The secretary of state has awarded the contract for print ing the supreme^court reports to the Carter Publishing Co. It will be re membered that the bids, one by Shannon St Longstaff, of the Huronite, and the Other by the Carter Publishing Co., and that the bids were a tie. We understand that Mr. Longstaff withdrew his bid in consideration of inducements offered by the attar firm. F. H. Kent, manager of the Great Northwest hotel, Chicago, the home of South Dakotans during the world's fair, returned from Chicago Saturday. He says that no rooms are being sokl by the hotel company occupancy between May 15 and July 15. The demand for accommodations exceed all expectation, and South Dakotans wanting rooms should secure them at once, or theg are likejj to go unprovided for. Washington dispatch, 5J0: fteitetary Hoke Bmith today said: **I shall take ft trip Uirough the Indian country as soon as I can get away from here. •hall make the Dakotas my initial point." Mr. Smith also said the removal of the Lower Brule agency and sinking of ar tesian wells at Rosebud and Pine Ridge shall be attended to as soon as the new Indian commissioner is appointed and confirmed. "I understand" says Hoke Bmith, "that Bartlett Tripp does not want to be commissioner of the general land office. Now if Maris Taylor were as good a lawyer as he is a man I should recommend his appointment immedi ately." Washiogton dispatch: Messrs. Volley and Piekler usually voted right. I am not prepared to say that they ever voted wrong. Hfre I would especially com mend them for voting to give each rep resentative and delegate $100 a month for clerk hire during each session of con gress. AH senators who are not chair man offoomotiitees are allowed clerks during the^session whose pay is #6 a day. This custom has prevailed since 1884. In these nine years ther« have been numer Ous efforts by'broad-gaugedjmen to give Clerks to representatives. It would al ways puss the house on a viva voce or standing vote, but when it oame to going on record by a roll-call it waa always -de feated until 1893. Their cowardice pre vailed. Nor would it have earned at this time there had not been so many representatives going out of office—near ly til of whom voted tor tha joint reso lution. South Dakota democracy is to be pitted. It is worse ridden with exotios than our worst fields with Canada this tles. Bartlett Tripp was brought back from the Pacific coast last fall to get astride the democratic neck, and he is •ettip.g there with sphinx-like stillness, blocking the avenne to every appoint ment but his own. Then there is Ixuis Kossuth Church, whose "O. K.w used to be so potent with Cleveland in the for mer administration, coming back by proxy. He makes claim to office in the name of South Dakota. He has lived four years on the Pacific coast, yet like N. O. Ordway returning to North Da kota at every senatorial contest, this barnacle seeks to fill his flesh pots of Bouth Dakota vintage. Then there is Miller, from Alabama, Lieben, from Illi nois, and several others who think South pakota is the vulture's field. Well may the native democracy exclaim: "From our friends, good Lord, deliver us." 1 he I'll run Can*:.

Mnren 22.—The oppo sition among the local members of Grand Army posts to the holding of the national encampment in this city has taken definite shape in a movement to adopt resolutions at the state encamp ment declaring that the veterans of In diana deeaa it inexpedient for the na tional encampment to be held in Indi ana this yea?. For a month past the matter has been quietly canvassed in the several po*t of this city, and in one having 300 mem bers a vote was taken and it was unani mous in the opposition to the holding of the national encampment here. The state encampment meet? at Evansville in April, and it is proposed to draft resolutions reciting the fact that the monument commission had Mexicanizod the soldiers and tailors monument: thnt it is no longer a monument to honor the heroes of the late war. and that it is the sentiment of the posts that the Grand Army as an organization should not iritefyat$ iq the dedicatory exercises. It was mainly on acconnt of the dedi cation of the monument that the Indiana posts desired the national eucampment to meet here. The resolution will ask the council of administration to fix the meeting at some other place. The city council passed the ordinance by a vote of 15 to 6 appropriating $75.0'JO in aid of the national encampment G. A. R. HOOFS FALL OFF. Serious Oi««aitt Among Cattle in Vk nona County, Minn. WINONA. Minn., March22.—Saturday Dr. R. C. 3|ason of this city was called to Money Creek, a few miles south of the city, to investigate a disease that had appeared among the cattle in that vicinity. The peculiarity of the dis ease waa that while the animal contin ued to eat well, it became lame in the hind legs, which lameness was followed by the entire dropping off of the hoofs, and necessitating tbe killing of the ani mal. Dr. Mason has returned and re ports finding a very serious state of af fairs in the vicinity he visited. He ex amined the hay and found it full of ergot, which caused the disease. A large number of animals are either dead or have lost their hoofs, .The number dead is about 50, and fully a§ many more will have to be killed.

Sunday was his day of fat®. He was born on that day, and it constantly recurs in connec tion with the chief events of his life. It was on Sunday that he regained posses sion of the noted Mulligan letters, with which that person was seeking to blast his career and drive him from public life. It was on the Sunday previous to the assembling of the Republican con' vention at Cincinnati in 1870 that he suf fered the sunstroke which played no in considerable part in breaking down the Blaine forces and nominating Hayes. It was on 8 Sunday that he prepared his celebrated Florence letter declining to be a candidate in 1888, and it was on the same day that he sent a peremptory cablegram to the same effect to Repre sentative Boutello at Chicago. It was on Sunday that his letter to Chairman Clarkson last February was given out in which he said his name would not go be fore the coming convention. His state ments of the American side of the Behr ing sea controversy and the New Orleans affair with Italy were given out on Son day. His resignation of the portfolio of state was twice determined on Sunday, the first to President Arthur and the second to President Harrison, although the latter was not sent to tbe president until Monday morning. That his last illness was hopeless became known to tbe public Sunday, Dec. 18, and It va# on Sun da J*, three weeks later, that hit physicians finally admitted the hopeless ness of his case. —Washington Qqgr cago Inter Ocean. i _•#* v The Woman Wow. An exciting race took place Monday afternoon in Walla Walla between Mn| Mary E. Miller of Kennewick, Yakima county, and Frank Foster of the same place. They both came in on the even ing train over the O. and W. T., and neither waited for the car to stop but jumped off and made frantic runs for hacks. The woman offered to buy thd hackman's team if he would get her to her destination in time, and the man slipped a $5 piece into the driver's hand in order to facilitate matters, and in leas time than 1 take to tell it both hacks were speeding up the street at a breaks neck gait v What was the cause of all this? Why, it was a race between them to see who could get to the United States land offices first to file on a piece of land near Kennewick.. The man arrived there first, but made a mistake and got into the wrong office, and in the meantime the woman had arrived and slipped in ahead of him. The woman also had her wit nesses with her, while the man was un prepared in this important particular consequently she "got there with botb feet"—Washington Statesman. $ Wktnral Gu flats** New LAW Question. A resolution was introduced in the city council tonight to begin a suit for dam ages, involving several hundred thousand dollars, against the Northwestern Ohio Natural Gas company, which has its wells in this county adjoining those of the city, and which supplies the city of Toledo with gas. The resolution is the result of a long study of the legal aspect of the case by Mr. Alexander, who intro duced it, and upon his recommendation^ it was referred to th© city solicitor, who it is understood, is in favor of vigorous ly prosecuting the suit. As the rock pressure has gradually decreased, the Northwestern company haa introduced three immense pump* at a station six miles from the city, at a cost of $50,000, in order to force the gas through the 40 miles of pipe and suck it from the ground. This has greatly injured the city's territory, and the claim will bd' made that the us© of artificial means to get the gas from under the contiguous territory of the city is illegal. The ques tion has neVt-r beeu raised in the courts. -Findlay Cor. Cleveland Plain Dealer V \f SiV U* iV.'V. I A- A ,, 4 carloads wil K \v^ 4 GAELOADSI WE FMWniJE ATTOKNKYn. OM, JB. Wmrmar, €. njt.
