Reed of New York, for $125,000 worth of property in and near Aberdeen, hod been won by the former. Brookings Press, 0: It is reported that G. A. Mathews has been promoted in the employ of the Wood Co. at Chica go, and his salary raised. The Press understands that Jno. E. Diamond will take his old position of attorney for the company, July 1st. Red field Journal, 6: Attorney General Crawford announces that in counties where the state's attorney neglects or refuses to enforce the prohibitory law he will, upon application of a citizen of that county, appoint some other to look especially after the enforcement of said law. That is a sensible course to pursue* When the Independents oarried Brown county two years and a half ago, the election was so close that the old county treasurer contested the election and held the office long enough to lift $1,000 of the incoming treasurer's sal ary. The latter at the close of his term sued the county for the $1,000 which, but for the contest, would have been his, but Judge Campbell has just decided against him. Land Commissioner Ruth will insti tute proceedings against the Vermont Btone company of Sioux Falls to recover 200 acres of school lands of section 16, Dell Rapids township, Minnehaha county, which this company has been holding for several years as mineral lands. Major Ruth thinks it can be easily proven that there is no mineral on the land, but the company will contest the relinquishment stubbornly. Argus-Leader, 7: Mrs. Wm. Duff Hay nie, of Rapid City Mrs. George A. Silsby, of Mitchell, and Mrs. J. S. Oliver, of Hu ron, will leave Friday for Chicago to at tend to the arrangement of the South Dakota woman's exhibit in the state building. Mrs. Hay nie thinks that it will take all of the time until the later part of May to get the building furnished and the exhibit in place. A car was loaded this afternoon with the material which has been stored here and will be shipped to the exposition to night. The officials of the secret serrioe throughout the country have received special instructions to look out for the circulation of counterfeit Columbian half-dollars, which, it is said, are turn ing up at many points. Quite a number have been turned up by Cincinnati banks, and it is thought that the count erfeiting nest is in that city. The coin is easily counterfeited, and is especially desirable for passing off on people who have never seen the genuine souvenir. Moreover they bring them 75 cents to $1 apiece, and consequently are extrar profitable to the counterfeiters. Waubay Clipper, G: The secretary the interior is about to forward to the Sisseton Indians $25 per capita of their interest fund. There now stands to the credit of this band of Indians $1,699,800, drawing interest at 5 per cent., amount ing to $84,990, or about $56.67 to each man, woman and child on the reserva tion. These Indians are now situated many of them with comfortable homes, teams, farming utensils and their large acreage of productive lands.

The insurrection is said to be under the leadership of General Gonzalez, and the rebels style them selves anti-annexationists, meaning that they are opposed to the annexation of San Domingo to the United States, which they charge President Heureattz with attempting to bring abont.

The 8aa Francisco Examiner HM Nond Into Ita New Home. The San Francisco Examiner has just completed and occupied a new building. The structure, as stated by its enterpris ing business manager, C. M. Palmer, was planned less for show than for busi ness convenience. It is on Mission street between Second and Third, and covers ground space 165 feet in depth by 45 feet in width. Four floors are occupied by the newspaper plant, editorial rooms, composing rooms, press rooms and other necessary convienences for a first clasp newspaper home. By way of machinery the building has six engines and three boilers, aggregating 200 horsepower. It has 12 elevators, eight electric machines, motors and generators, and is in every respect admirably adapted to the manu- THE XXAIONKK BUILDINO. facture of a great newspaper. The three Hoe insetting (double) presses have a ca pacity of printing 72,000 8, 10 or 12-page papers in an hour and twice that num ber of 6-page sheets. The newest press, which has just been put in, jvill print in two colors from a single plate at the rate of 24,000 per hour. Under the management of Mr. Palmer The Examiner has taken a front place in the ranks of great metropolitan journals of the day, and by indomitable energy and tact lias made for itself an enviable reputation for hustle in the news and business world. Ita editorial and local staffs contain the names of many of the brightest pen cil shovers in* the country, among them Arthur McEwen, Ambrose Bierce and Tom Williams, now its Washington rep resentative. One of the characteristic enterprises of the management is a Well ington bureau, through which it under takes to carry out commissions of what ever sort its constituents may have at the nation's capitol, except perhaps ob tain recognition at the White House for the army of office seekers. It does not assume to deal in office brokerage, but stands ready to give the public informa tion of what is going on in that line. Mr. Hearst, the owner, has been wise enough to put the right sort of men at the head of his pajer and then go away to enjoy life without any fear as to the fate of his immense investment. MASTER OF THE HOUNDS. The BOM of U»« Dog» Thai Hunt Taate Deer In Wlndaor Forest. The master of the buckhounds is an official of great antiquity and gfeater uselessness. The post was formerly hereditary in the Brocas family, but was made appointive in the seventeenth cen tury. At first the sovereign exercised the power of appointment, but the mu tations of politics finally lodged the power with the ministry, and the incum bent is now changed with each change of government. Lord Ribblesdale, who holds the office at present, is a Yorkshire peer and was appointed by Mr. Gladstone to succeed the Earl of Cov entry, who wae Salisbury's ap pointee in 188#. Lord Ribblesdale was one of the lords in waiting to the queen dur ing Gladstone's former ministry. He is said to be man of tact aiift diplomacy, qual ities in great de- LOKD maud at Ascot, where he has to decide the momentous question of who shall be admitted to view the races from the royal inclosure. He came very near losing his job last year, when there was an ener getic agitation for the abolition of the hunt, buckhounds and all, because of the cruelty of hunting tame deer, which were the only kind that could be hunted, as there were no others. The queen and prime minister did not view the agitation with favor, however, and some of the farmers and land own ers protested against the abolition of even a cruel sport that brought them ducats, so the matter died out for a time. The Humanitarian society is still interested in the question, however, and bids fair to keep it before the people. The secretary recently wrote to Mr. Gladstone asking if the report were true that the buckhounds were to be con tinued, and Mr. Gladstone very diplo matically answered that no decision on the subject had yet been arrived at. A Carloui Dispute. curious ecclesiastical dispute is pro Geeding in the little parish of St. Yalery en-Caux Normandy. The free think era of the neighborhood object to enter Ing the church even to attend funerals or marriages and complain that during the religions portion of snch ceremonies they are obliged to wait in the various wineshops at hand. So they request the church to build a "neutral shelter" ad joining the sacred buildings, where they can wait without violating their opin ions. The clerical authorities refuse, and the free thinkers\propo«e to take legal proceeding^ SOON TO ADJOURN Realtors Will rrotJaMy UffIn to Part Tlif»!r (Jrlpsacks Next Wednesday. Only a Few Sore Important Nomina ttoi* Yet Rentals to Be Made. k Resolution Regarding tke Recent Labor Decision ft* Toledo. '•*. i WASHINGTON, April 8.—At the White House it is thought that the senate will adjourn next week, probably Wednes day. Intimations to this effect have been given the president by several sen ators. but apparently without the ha-os of a general agreement in doing so. It is not likely that the senate will adjourn before the president nominates the judges for the new court of appeals for the District of Columbia, as in that event the District would be left in a crippled state judicially. If, however, Mr. Cleveland s^ndsin the names of the new judges within a few days, nothing will stand in the way of adjournment next week, and he has been informed that this is the status of the matter at present. FOR ORGANIZED LABOR. A Resolution Introduced by Senator Voorhees. WASHINGTON, April 8.—In the senate Mr. Voorhees introduced a resolution which was referred to the interstate commerce committee, reciting the de cision of the Ohio courts in the entfin eers strike c*»ses, and directing the com mittee to report what legislation is nec essary to amend the interstate com merce law so as to protect the rights of organized la'oor. The resolution instructing the com mittee on commerce to visit the Pacific coast for the purpose of ascertaining the best site for a deep water harbor was taken up and agreed to. Mr. Hoar resumed his speech in op position to the proposed constitutional amendment for a popular election of senators. Presidential Appointment*. WASHINGTON. April 8.—The presi dent has sent to the senate the following nominations: Caleb W. West, of Ut.ih, governor of Uath: Dominick Murphy, of Washington, first deputy commis sioner of pensions: Ambrose W. Ly man, of Montana, collector of internal revenue for the district of Montana David C. Brown, of Montana, collector of customs for the district of Montana and Idaho, in the State of Montana. ATTACKED A CONSULATE. The American. Minister to Peru IX« pof-ts an Oatrsge* WASHINGTON April 8.—Minister John Hicks cables the state department from Lima, Peru, as follows: "At (place omitted) mob attacked Ma sonic lodge, sacked building and burned fixtures in the street. Incidentady United States consulate was invaded, furnishings destroyed and Acting Con sul Argent shot in the foot. Papers saved intact. Squadron of police looked on while the mob finished the work of destruction. Mail brings the particu lars." The particulars in question, which are left to be decided by the mails, ap parently include the information as to where the outrage occurred, which, un accountably, is missing from the tele gram. Gresham Replies. After consultation with Preside* Cleveland, Secretary Gresham sent the following telegram to the minister: "Protest against failure of authori ties to afford protection to consulate and if facts are well established ask ex pression of regret, prompt prosecution of the guilty parties and reparation for injury to American property or per son." It is believed at the department that a satisfactory explanation of the will shortly be made. Roach Wouldn't Otgeefc WASHINGTON,April 8.—Senator Roacn has no objection to the resolution intro duced in the senate by Chandler asking for papers and records of the Citizens National bank, of which he was cashier. Reports sent out that Roach's endorse ments were not to be honored by the president or cabinet, and that North Dakotans are not applying to him, he says are untrue. Sundry School Convention Cloaed. MANKATO. Minn., April 8.—The aa nual convention of the State Sunday School association has closed. Between 200 and 800 delegates have been in at tendance and all meetings have been crowded. Dr. Leo M. Crafts of Minne apolis was elected president, Hon. A. D. Perkins, Minneapolis, secretary, and C. H. Woodward, St. Paul, treasurer. Counterfeiter Died in JsIL ANK8VIUE. W is.. April 8. —C. A. Mack, bead of a gang of counterfeiters of Superior. Wis., died in the jail in this city. He was awaiting trial in the United States district court at Madison next month.

Will Bi Them at Tolleston. Ind. CHICAGO, April 8.—Armour, Swift ft Morris, the great packers, are the pro jectors of a cluster of tanneries with a capacity equal to the tanning of 90 per cent of the raw hides produced in this eountry, on 4,00» acres of land which they own at Tolleston. Ind. Rumors that such plans were talked of by the packers have been current for some time. They have received an impetus within a week or two by the statements made by officers of Armour & Co. to the effect that great tanneries in the vicin ity' of Chicago would probably be built. Control 90 Per Cent of Stock. One packer said: "Armour, Swift and Morris produce about 4,000,000 hides annually. They control 90 per cent of the entire stock. I cannot say how much money will be required to build tanneries. Adjacent to the tanneries the plan is to have leather and harness makers, boot and shoe manul.ictnrers. etc. The only way to do is to bring them right here. Then the ironmakers and tanners will come in.n A representative of the packers, it was rumored, had been securing some hemlock lands in Wisconsin and niinf"? for weeks. CHICAGO JUDGE SCORED. For His Leniency to G*y Minnesota Bank Cashier. CHICAGO, April 8.—United States Judge Grosscup ia roundly criticised over the leniency manifested in impos inga fine of $100 on J. W. H. Hodge, cashier of the First National bank of Winona, who pleaded guilty to sending obscene letters to Miss B'lie Miller, a handsome saleswoman of a State street store. The girl's father found the let ters in her room, and put the govern ment detectives on his track. Hodge corresponded under the name of Stone. United States Inspector McAfee says he doesn't want to criticise the judgment of the court, but he has seen men sent to the penitentiary for much lesser crimes. Hodge made no defense. Fed Their Child Whisky. VALLEY CITY, N. D., April 8.—A oouple named Grasser gave their 4-year old boy a drink of whisky. Half an hoar alter the child died. NEWS IN BRIEF. Matters of More or Less Importance Tersely Touched Upon. Footpads are at work at Creston, la. Lightning struck a cistern at St. Paul and emptied it of water. John E.

Active steps are being taken to es tablish an extensive dynamite factory near the City of Mexico. At present all of this class of explosive is imported from the United States. The friends of Hon. W. L. Douglass, the shoe manufacturer, have decided to put him forward as the Democratic can didate for governor of Massachusetts at the convention next September. The failure is announced of Wer^ heimer & Co., Liverpool, cotton brokers, for £70,000.

PAUL, April 8.—Judge Otis has filed his decision in the case of John J. Rhodes against James A. Boggs and Hiler H. Horton for damages for the seizure of his books which he is alleged to have kept as the secretary of the coal combination, so called. The matter came up before Judge Otis at special term, on a motion that the summons served upon Horton and Boggs in the action be vacated. At the hearing there was an elaborate argument by Harris Richard son for the movers of the motion, and by C. D. O'Brien in opposition. Judge Otis grants the motion to va cate the summons and set it aoide. The action of Rhodes was against all the members of the investigating com mittee. but Messrs. Boggs and Horton were the only two who made the motion to vacate the summons. Chump Book* Coming. *4 think the time is coming,* said Henry Smalley, a New York publisher, at the Lindell, "when the ruling market price of our paper covered novels will be 5 cents. 1 think the revolution will commence some time this year. What do I base my opinion on? Why, on our Sunday newspapers. Take any of the better c«ass of our daily papers and look at their Sunday editions. They print fully five times as much matter as the average novel contains and a great many moro illustrations. Now, if the news paper publishers can afford to do this, there is no reason in the world why the book publishers can't do the same thing. Of course they will have to use a cheaper paper, but I don't think the average readers care two straws about that. It's the reading matter they want, and as long as it is clean and legible they are dot going to stop to inquire if the pa per used is 'news' or calendered.'n—St. Louis Glube-pttUQCrat. \', WE HAVE A NEW LOT OF THESEBANKS CHA8.
