The gorge Eiteuda About Kighteeu Mil**, and is made up largely of anchor ice, which is a sOrt of .slush packed closely, but not so hard as ordinary ice. Under this the water "is running in cramped quarters, and as the water falls more the ice will drop down into the river bod, where it is likely to stay until spring. We seem to be starting a reg ular old-fashioned winter, so there is every reason to expect the continuance of the ice till spring, but there seenjs no reason to apprehend any danger.

BECOMING BREEZY. (jeruian Llbe! Suit* Promine to Develop Several Srnantiuoa. BERLIN, lec. r.—When the trial of Herr Leckert, Baron Ton Luetzow, Herr Ploetz, Herr Berger and Herr Faellmer, the journalists, who are1 charged with libelling Count Botho Zu Eulenberg, Baron Marschall von Bieb erstein and Prince Alexander von Hoh enlohe (an outcome of the czar's and Emperor William's toast at Breslau) was resumed, the public prosecutor an nounced that he had instituted pro ceedings against Baron von Luetzow on charges of forgery and fraud. This latest development in an inter esting case, is the result of evidence which tended to demonstrate that Barou von Luetzow had forged a receipt fof money, while ar interview with the chief of police showed that Von Tausch, the commissioner of the detective po lice, traced the incriminating article to the foreign office. It was subsequently developed that Baron von Luetzow was the author of the assertion that the false version came from the foreign of fice, and it was thus proved, also, that Von Luetzow was an agent of the se cret police. Then Came a Clash. This led to a clash between Baron Marschall von Bieberstein aud von Tausch. The former declared that the foreign office had for some time past, and for good reasons, refrained from employing the political police when inquiring into the authorship of articles, and the minister for foreign affairs accuscd the commissioner of detectives of fermenting suspicion against himself This caused Von Tausch to ask for the protection of the court, pointing out the fact that he was not in the prisoner's dock, bnt on the witness stand. The conclusion of the trial is awaited with great interest, as it is expected to reveal the doings of the court clique which is dominated by Count Botho Zu Eulenberg, the former minister of the interior the latter's cousin, the present court marshal and Richthofen, charged with causing the downfall of Von Caprivi, as well as with being the instigators of the recent press war against Prince Hohenlohe and Baron Marschall von Bieberstein. Baron Marschall von Bieberstein tes tified at length regarding his relations with Von Tausch, but nothing of in terest developed from his evidence. South Dakota Count Ceaupleted. PIERRE, S.
