F. ST A HI., Proprietor South Carolina has enacted one of the most stringent prohibition laws ever put on the statute book, and July 1 will in augurate state control and sale of liquor. Nebraska through its legislature has undertaken the state control of railroads. It has fixed an indexible schedule of rates away down, and purposes that they shall be lived up to. Nebraska has good cause for regulation of these corpora tions, Minnesota's legislature has decreed that that state shall have a new capitol on the present site at a cost not to exceed $2,000,000 Ten years is allowed for the erection of the building and something substantial and imposing may be ex pected. Every resident of the state who has ever visited Sioux Falls will remember the Pettigrew grove on the west side of town and learn with a feeling of regret that it fell a prey to devouring flames last Friday. It was a landmark that could be always pleasantly remembered. Both Turkey and Peru are taking un justifiable liberties in the destruction of American property and in insulting American citizens. Secretary Gresham has promptly called them to account and if he only follows up the action until reparation is made and immunity from outrage guaranteed, he will have earned the plaudits of the American people. Sioux Falls Argus-Leader, 8: The sale here yesterday was a great success. There were sold 118 pieces, aggregating 4,72)0 acres, at an average of $14.70 per acre. The total receipts from the sale in this county were $68,684. Two tracts ap praised at $12, sold for $23. The lowest prioe any was sold at was $12, while the highest prioe paid was $30.25 for a piece adjoining the townsite of Hartford. There still remains to be sold in this county 250 tracts,aggregating 10,000 acres, which next year will be appraised at not less than $140,000. Land in the eight townships in the west ern part of the county will be rented for 5 cents per.acre and everything else at 10 cents. It is expected every piece will be taken. Pierre Capital, 7: The First National Bank, of this city, has in its possession a most remarkable and dangerous counter feit ten dollar bill. The bill was offered by a citizen for deposit some months ago, and at that time was thought to be a counterfeit by Mr. Binford. The bill was sent to New York by the bank and there was declared one of the most dan gerous counterfeits in existence* It is an old issue and is badly torn and cov ered with sticking plaster to hold it to gether, and undoubtedly has passed through hundreds of banks and thous ands of individuals who have never dreamed that it was not a good bill Right here we want to warn our brother members of the press fraternity to keep on tbe look out for these counterfeit ten dollars—if you get any that you think are not just right just send them here to us and we will look after them. Why Foam I* The question as to wWF all foam is white is not an easy one to understand, but the fact is that foam is always white, whatever may be the color of the bev erage itself. The froth produced on a bottle of the blackest ink is white, and would be perfectly so were it not tinged to a certain extent by particles of the beverage which the bubbles hold in me chanical suspension. As to the cause of this whiteness, it is sufficient to say that it is due to the large number of reflecting surfaces formed by the foam, for it is these surfaces which, by reflecting the light, produce upon our eyes the impres sion of white. If we remember that all bodies owe their colors to the rays of light, which they cannot absorb, and all bodies which reflect all the light they receive, without absorbing any, appear perfectly white, we shall be prepared to understand how the multitude of reflecting surfaces formed by the foam, and which do not absorb any light, must necessarily give the froth a white appearance. It is for the same reason that any very fine pow der appears white, even the blackest marble, when ground to dust, losing every trace of its orij,nnal color.—Thomas urwick in Confectioners' Journal.

B. Scbanz ia MGwaukee Sentinel, IMPORTANT TO POLITICIANS. The CAit,rol of Offices In AHZOM Is Qnlte The senate Republicans are making DUN'S REVIEW. Monetary Difficulties Not Canciof Any Kmbarrassment at Present. NEW YORK, April 10.—R. G. Dun Ss Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: In most parts of the country more seasonable weather has improved retail business during the past week, and some improvement in collections re sulted, although complaints are still somewhat common. With better dis tribution of goods to consumers there has been a gain on the whole in the whole sale trade and industries are sustained in the main by an nn abated demand. Local hindrances checked a few branches of industry at some points and labor controversies grow more frequent as the warm season approaches, but in the aggregate labor is well employed. Monetary difficulties have caused scarcely any embarrassment during the past week, and though more gold has gone abroad, the markets are as yet comparatively easy and well supplied. The iron industry shows no change of consequence, consumption and aappijr appearing very closely balanced. TOOK EVERY DOLLAR. County Treasurer's Safe at Fort Madi son, la., Cleaned Out by Burglar*. FORT MADISON, la., April 10.—Bur glars entered the county treasurer's of fice in the court house last night, drill ing through two vault doors, forcing off the locks and made away with every dollar in the safe.

T., April 10. -The Cherokee senate has passed a bill desig nating the chief and treasurer and two other delegates to go to Washington to get the money, amounting to $8,300,000 due on the sale of the strip. The bill will pass the lower house. Quite a sen sation is being caused here by the re cent offer of the Mexican government to sell the Cherokees a portion of old Mexico in case the United States takes the country away from them. A Family in JaH. ALGOKA, la., April 10.—Mrs. Emma Finn is in jail here with her 10-day-old baby and her husband charged with burglary. The man and woman are ac cused of having robbed the depot at Luverne and the safe of the American Express company. Detectives ran them pretty close, when Mrs. Finn broke down and confessed that she and her husband are the parties who did the job. Most of the valuables taken were turned over to the officers. Visitors Will be Allowed. NORFOLK, W. Va.. April 10.---A num ber of college presidents have made ar rangements to have their pupils visit Norfolk during the rendezvous. Admiral Gherardi has informed the executive committee of the rendezvous that his regulation prohibiting visitors, ladies and others on the ships during the re view, will not apply during the time the fleets are in Hampton Roads. Wisconsin Legislature. MADISON, Wis., April 10.—Ths as sembly concurred in the senate bill ap priating $100,000 for world's fair pur poses. The senate passed the bill premit tingliruor to be sold on the fair grounds, even where the state grants aid to the societies holding fairs. Ten Cents on the Dollar. MONTREAL, April 10.— The L'Enten dard is in financial difficulties and has offered to settle with his creditors on a basis of 10 cents on the dollar. The liabilities are between $50,000 and $60, 000. Fomrth Class Postmaster* WASHINGTON. April 10.—The total number of fourth class postmasters appointed during the day was 1^0, and of this number 71 were to fill vacancies caused by resignation and death, and 49 removals.

It fallows the total revenue to IK $1,883,790 increase over estimate,892 expend itures, $1,678,1'JO: increase, 1146,352 mm QitPNtlon Now. BALTIMORE, Ajril 10.—The Sun's Washington correspondent telegraphs his paper as follows: a strong effort to delay action on the nomination by the president of a gov ernor of Arizona. The legislature of Arizona will ad journ in about 10 days. The senate is strongly Democratic, and if a Demo cratic governor is put in office at once, his appointments of all local officials will, of course, be ^promptly confirmed by the senate. To have all the territor ial officers in accord with the Demo cratic party is Of Much Importance, In view of the fact that full preparations for statehood are exacted to be made during the coming summer and it is be lieved Arizona will be admitted into the Union at the next session of congress. All local officers are Republicans. If they can hold over their influence and powers will be exerted in the direction of securing a Republican state organiza tion and consequently to the election of two Republican United States senators. For this reason the Republican senators have set themselves to work to throw obstacles in the way of confirming the new government appointed by Mr. Cleveland. But the Democratic sena tors appreciate the importance of the occasion and are resolved to leave no nominations unacted upon when the final adjournment takes place next week. NINE ARE KILLED. Big Cantilever Machine Goes Through B—t of an Eaglae Iwe at Joliet. Aeeideat the Result ef UMVSevere Wind Storm la Tka Section. The Storm Very SeTere in Wisconsin. Illinois and Iowa—Some Fatalities.

The heavy hail and wind storm passed through Joliet at 6 p. in. doing damage to buildings. At Romeo, four miles north of Lockport on the drainage canal, occnrred the worst damage in this county. Dan bridge & Hanger.sub-contractors under Mason. Hage & King on the drainage banal channel, will suffer a heavy loss. The high cantilever on wheels, weigh ing 28 tons, was on the track when the storm set in.

Iowa and Illinois Visited by a Severe Storm. CHICAOO, April 10.—A furious wind and hail storm swept over the southern portion of the city during the evening, causing considerable damage. Trees were blown down, bill boards were levelled and hundreds of window lights were shattered. John Ordway of Englewood, while riding in a street car, was struck in the back of the neck by a piece of glass from the car window which had been broken by hailstones and one of the veins of his neck was cut. Before medical, aid could be given him he lost so much blood that his recovery is donbtfnl. Panics occurred in several of the ii^ apartment buildings but no serious in cidents from this cause have been re ported.

Osceola county was a depositor to the amount of $9,000. Mr. Orde, the bank's president, is reported as assert ing that depositors will be paid in foil. California's Wheat Crop. BAN FRANCISCO, April 10.—Reports received from 40 points in all parts of California indicate that this state will have bountiiul crops this year. In the San Joaquin valley, the great wheat raising district of the state, the crop will be unj»recedented in size. In the Sacramento valley, the other great wheat-raising district, reports are not so favorable. It is estimated there will be only half an average crop this year on account of continued cold and rainy weather and a smaller acreage planted to wheat In Southern California a large yield of grain is expected, as the condition* in that section have been fa vorable. Lochren at Gettysburg GETTYSBURG, April 10.—Judge Loeh ren of Minnesota, the new commis sioner of pensions, visited this battle field during the day and with Secretary Hamilton of the Memorial association located the site for the f'iU.OOU monu ment for the First Minnesota infantry.

Cltmax la a Sensational Kentmcky Murder Case. STrnais, KyApril 10.—The confes sion in the Morganfield tragedy has come. Lewis Land, a young man of the county, called on the authorities and laid bare the whole plot to kill the Olivers. He implicated the four men now under srrest and said that he him self with Will Gort and Alex Thomason, of this place, were also in the party that fired on the Olivers. He said he had no idea what he was going for when he left his house. He confessed now, he declared, because an innocent man is suspected and might be hanged. This man, Land declares, is George Henry, now under arrest. He says Henry was not of the party and had nothing whatr. ever to do with the affair. He made a long statement and affidavit. He said that even after the shooting some one of, the crowd wanted Delaney, whose brother had been forced to marry the Oliver girl, to go back and kill the rest of the family, but he appeared sat isfied with the revenge for the present. Excitement is at fever heat and it is probable that before night there will be the biggest and closing sensation of the whole affair to narrate—a wholesale lynching. Not Generally Approved. TTAOTCTON, 8. D., April 10.—-The ac tion taken by the Democratic city com mittee in telegraphing to Washington charges against Colonel Hughes East, of Yankton, is approved by very few people in this community outside of those directly interested. Mr. East was, a few days ago, appointed to a chief clerkship in the agricultural depart ment. He has been a thorn in the side of nearly all the Democratic aspirants for office during the past two years, and his appointment was a severe shock to their nervous systems. American Missionaries Fired SAN FRANCISCO, April 10.—Private ad vices from Jahut, Marshall Islands, in the South Pacific say that the new Ger man high commissioner, Major Schmidt, has decided to evict all the American and native Protestant missionaries from the islands. For years the missionary brig Morning Star has carried members of the American Board of Foreign Mis sions to the various islands of the group where they have trained native teachers. The Germans have decided to stop this, as they claim the American missionaries predjndioe the natives against German rule. Paaeengers Escaped Uninjured. CINCINNATI, April 10.—The train on the Louisville, New Albany and Chi cago line, which left Cincinnati at 9:15 p. m., met with an accident near Frank fort, Ind. At the hamlet of Rossville is a bridge which is believed to have been weakened by recent washouts. The engine crashed through the bridge, going down 80 feet. Engineer Brooks was killed and Fireman O'Brien prob ably fatally hurt. The passengers es caped uninjured. Workmen Shut Out the Strikers. PROVIDENCE, R. I., April 10.—The strike of the dresser tenders at the Riv-V erside mills has assumed a strange phase. The strikers have been out for two weeks, but they have come to the conclusion that they cannot win, and are trying to get back. The other op eratives, however, do not wish the strike to cease, and have threatened bodily harm to the dresser tenders, who have been so intimidated that they dare not enter the mill enclosure. The Khan in a Fury. BOMBAY, April 10.—I tin reported from Quetta that Mir Kbudadad Khan, khan of Khelat and sovereign of Baluchistan, has murdered his prime minister, has mutilated several of his advisers, and is torturing many high officials, whom he has imprisoned in dungeons. He is sup posed to have learned or suspected that there was a plot to assassinate him. Thought Himself Qualified. A contest arose Saturday night in an Auburn barber shop about the compara tive honesty of the French and English laboring man. One of the disputants was a Frenchman, who eloquently ex tolled the merits of the French laboring man. An interested listener thought he would ta^e part in the discussion, and prefaced his remarks thus: '"Now, I sup pose I'm part French myself. My father and mother were both French."—Bangor Commercial. Why MM I«fM Within a few years the craze for clubs has extended to all classes of society and both sexes until almost every man and boy in the community is a member of some club, and many ladies have their clubs at which to meet their friends and talk over the fashions or more serious matters. When the craze took the peo ple they seemed to think it was some thing in the way of enjoyment which they had overlooked, while business mea found in it a new and quick way of com munication with customers and a con tinuance of business through the evening as well as during the hours of daylight. The club served also to the men of busi ness as a means of acquaintance with men whom they might not otherwise meet without considerable difficulty, and who might, by rubbing against each other, Wive each other's purposes or profit. It is a striking fact that in many cases the names of our most remarkable clube are misnomers, misleading to the unini tiated, and the real objects of the gather inga mystery to the members. A man joins a club for reasons of his own, which are enjoyment, seclusion from the outer world, independence, conviviality and select acquaintance. He wants a place at which he may meet a friend—he wants ths tone of the club and the priv ilege of rubbing against whom he re gards as his superiors in many things, particularly business and wealth—and he doesn't care alxrat the objects of the organization if there be any other than what he is there fur,—New Yo^k Tinaea. 1 WE HAVE A NEW LOT OF THESEBANKS YOU CAN CHA8. t.
