A Proposition to Appropriate Public Mon ey Without Limitations Hot Business like—Oast Your Vote Against the Water Works Bonds. Tomorrow will decide the fate of the water works bonds. It is, no doubt, un necessary to caution anyone against voting for them as anyone with business sagacity will naturally do so, no natter how much they may desire water works. Had the proper limitations been placed upon the issue of the bonds, and the method of carrying out the enterprise embodied in the proposition to be voted upon, then the people could have voted intelligently, and in the future would have been protected from the caprice of councils in the disposition of so large a sum of money. Anything short of this is not businesslike no matter how trust worthy the present oouncil may be. Councils, like all other bodies of men, are subject to change, and therein change of opinion and policy. Any mere statement or resolution of their intent or mode of procedure, no matter how honestly meant, is not. worth the paper it is written on as a binding agreement between them and the people. It is an action that the council itself can rescind at any time, and take another tack. But place these restrictions in the proposi tion which the people vote upon and carry, and the humblest tax-payer in the community can make them walk accord ing to it. We understand our council give many assurances of what they tfill do in the matter, but some how they have avoided all opportunity of letting the people clinch the matter by a vote, so the headway is to put a quieUuton the project until they do. v SYNOD ADJOURNED filnainjjr Reports—Elections—College Talk *Sunday Services and Grateful Resolutions. Dr. Blackburn read the report of the board of trustees of Pierre college, which showed the attendance of students was 12 in the classical department 17 in the academic 7 in business course 15 in music and 28 in art department. Total, 77. Number of instructors, 6. The in stitution is in good condition financially and otherwise, thorough work in all de partments being done. Next followed the treasurer's report by Coe I. Crawford, which carried out the statements is th4 report of the board. The report of committee on church erection read by D. M. Butts, showed rather meager results and a falling off this year of 8231, last year's contribu tion to this fund being $517. The recommendation of the Pierre col lege by the Synod to the board of aid for colleges, came up and gave rise to an an imated discussion, the point of issue be ing the present location. Some members of the Central Dakota Presbjteria during the past year have been agaiting the question of removal of the college to some more eastern point so as to be nearer the center of population and the question itself came up in Synod on the request of the board to adopt a resolution of approval of the present lo cation. Though the adoption of the resolution was stubbornly contested, the vote of approval was given almost unaumously, there being only three or four dissentin'g votes, showing that the Synod is firmly of the conviction that looking to the future the college has beenproperly located. At the popular meeting in Ha# even* ing. Rev. Richardson, of Woonsocket, presided. The subject for the evening was "Edu cation and Colleges," and was opened by an able paper from Dr. Blackburn who took the ground that the real college must be a Christian school. Any other would be lopsided. There was a growing disposition to exclude religious teaching from text books which should be coun teracted. Seculanty was as bad as sec tarianism and even more bigoted. The Chistian college was a public necessity as ajmeans of promoting efficiency, sense of duty and defense. Following Dr. Blackburn, Hon. Coe I. Crawford spoke for a few minutes on the quality of scholarship in Pierre college, which was very complimentary to that institution. Rev. J. S. Butts presented the report on church erection and Dr. H. P. Carson that on aid to colleges. The latter showed that the board was supporting or aiding 40 colleges, containing 20,000 stu dents. The board's annual income for the past ten year's has been $80,000. South Dakota contributed the past year to this purpose $1,286, being $188 more than the year previous. Only 59 out of the 132 churches in the state contribu_ ted, but there has been a steady annua) increase of the contributions. What might the amount not be if all assisted? Dr. H. P. Carson was re-elected stated clerk and Rev. J. Y. Ewart permanent clerk, each for 3 years. Mrs. Dr. Carson and Mrs. J. (3. Oliver of Huron, were confirmed as vice presi dents of the Women's Executive com mittee on Home Missions. Dr. Carson was also recommended to thd Home Mission board for reappoint ment t»s Synodical Missionary of South Dakota. The committee on resolutions presen ted the following report, which was unanimously adopted: Resolved, That the Synod of South Dakota acknowledges with gratitude the kindness of the pastor and his wife, also the church and citizens of Madison in welcoming us to their homes and enter taining us with such cordial hospitality. Resolved, Also, that we acknowledge the friendly attitude of the city papers toward our Synod in so faithfully re porting our daily proceedings and, Resolved, That a copy of these resolu tions be furnished for publication. SINDAY. A large audience filled the Presbyter ian church at the morning service, the Rev. D. M. Butt, moderator of the Synod* pleaching fcthe sermon from Eph., 3:17, "That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith." The discourse was an able exposition of the personality and power of Christ in the human heart). In the afternoon at 3 30 the Synodical Coumunion was observed, Rev. J. 0. Cram conducting the service, assisted by Rev. A. Z. McGogney and Rev. Thomas Bayne* The Communion season was opened by the Synodical prayer meeting, followed by the reading of the "Narra tive of the State of Religipn" in the Synod, by Rev. J. Y. Ewart. This whole session was solemn yet encouraging and deeply enjoyed by all present. The popular meeting Sunday evening called out a packed bouse, and the ad dress in the line of Sabbath School and Christian Endeavor work were, spirited and instructive. Elder E. H. Grant dis coursed in a practical way on the mission work being done for Sabbath schools. Rev. Geo. Williams spoke on "Boys and Girls for the Times," and Rev.*A. Z. Mc Gogney discussed the relation of the Christian Endeavor society to the church. Many useful suggestions were made by these speakecsaod msnyinter eating incidents of experience and his tory told. At the close of the meeting Rev. Dr. Blackburn eaid n few words in behalf of Pierre college and students, inviting any one who felt desirous of aiding a good cause or needy student, to subscribe to the support of the institution after which the moderator took the chair, the* Synod sang "Best Be the Tie," aDd wafl adjourned.

KISSIKOEN, Oct. 0.—Prince Bismarok drove out with Dr. Schweninger during the morning. He looks eomewhat stronger and responded to several salu tations from pedestrians along the road. In the streets of the town he was cheered by all whom he passed. Dr. Schweninger says that he is well satis fied with his patient's condition and, would long since have taken him homt' had Bismarck not been so. fearful thai1 traveling would make his sciatic worse. HIS NKCK SAVED. The De timet Murderer Granted a Reprieve Almost on the Gallows. HURON, S. D., Oct. 9.—South Da kota's first execution, which was to have occurred at De Smet Saturday* has been postponed by the reprieve of the governor of the murderer N. R» Thompson, who was to have been hanged tor the murder of Mrs. Electa Blighton at Arlington, July 4. 1892. Word from De Smet says there ia great indignation because of Thomp* son's reprieve and danger of a lynch* ing. An immense crowd is gathering and the excitement is high. Bombardment Ended. WASHINGTON, Oct. 9.—The most im portant news concerning the Brazilian revolution since its inception has been received by the secretary of the navy in a cable dispatch from Captain Picking, the commander of the United States cruiser Charleston, at Rio, as follows: "Admiral Me llo.having been informed that the government would dismount guns in the city, said he would not again fire upon the place." This un doutedly means that the bombardment of Rio Jeneiro has ended. Storm on L«ke Superior. ASHLAND. Wis., Oct. 9.—A terrific storm is raging on Lake Superior. The waves wash clear over the Ashland breakwater and various lumber docks have been damaged somewhat. Lum ber piles have been toppled over and washed away. Tug Keystone is re ported to have lost a large scow of pro visions between Ashland and Bark bay. Foreign Powers Will Act. BUENOS AYRES, Oct. 9.—A report is current in Rio Janeiro that the diplo matic body has warned President Peixoto that his forces be not with drawn from the capital by Sunday next the foreign powers will recognise the insurgents as belligerents. Mail Clerk Killed. CLAT CENTER, Kan., Oct. 9.—No. 9 passenger irain on the Reck Island rail road collided with freight train No. 94 at Ktatf. The mail car was burned the mail clerk killed aud the engineer and fireman of the passenger train badly hurt Wartime Slilnpluater* Just RodecmedL During war times the municipality of Albany issued on it:-? own credit fraction al currency redeemable on demand at the city treasurer's or chamberlain's office. Most of the fiat money was redeemed witliin the five years subsequent to the end of the war, and during the seventies the chamberlain would be called upon to change a few coins. It was believed that all had been taken up. Yesterday, however, Chamberlain Hills was visited by two young ladies who showed him a quantity of the currency issued in 1862 and asked him what it was worth. To the chamberlain's questions as to how it had come into their posses sion the elder replied that in looking over the effects of a relative lately de ceased it was found stored away in an old box along with many war curios. Mr. Hills promptly handed over the counter in good bills the face value of the money, between $25 and $30. A singular coincidence connected with the transaction was that Chamberlain Hills himself paid out the currency re deemed yesterday to the original owner over 80 years ago.—Albany Journal. A PoitMittr With a Sure Job. "Few die and none resign" holds true of a certain postoffice in York county. The office pays a salary of only $86 a year, and the man who holds it has been postmaster for a quarter of a century. He hf^s tried a number of times to resign, but the village folk have every time pre vailed on him to retain the office. No body else in town wants it, and the neighbors have become so used to calling at his house for their letters that they cannot bear the thought of having a change. This postmaster can hardly be called an offensive partisan. —Lewiston Journal. The word "pen" means a wather and is from the Latin penna, awing.
