Yours, very truly, DANIEL LEASURE. Shang as a Gospel Singer. Almost every person in the north- vtjest has heard of "Shang," the most torious gambler ever seen" in these p rts--a shrew,d, versatile and reckless nius who has made and lost gambling, and who, although con- intly breaking the law, has nearly 'always-been able to slip through its g rs. "Shang" is now in the Black Us and'a correspondent of the P.-P. sdeaks of him thus: Shang is quite a character] He is no means a disagreeable fellow, ·find him decidedly accommodating ar|d; entertain ing. He has made one vi iit to the Hills, having been at in Bismarck, a week before he again started out. He is a good singer, and knows a host of good songs, from Gospel Hymns to pathetic and sentimental ballads. He relates many interesting tales of his experience, not omitting to garnish them with appar- enjtly serious tioralizing. Sbang was in!the Hills for!several weeks cajone "flat broke," but getting a fr^m a friend, he again tented bis acid came out winner to the amount abbut $7,000, breaking two banks. Of this he "planted" some$5,000 by sending it to his mother in Iowa, and returning to Bismarck he fixed up his business by paying all of his debts. was rumored in Bismarck last week th^t Shang was jto be married to Sukie White, the widow of Jack latjeof Bismarck, and I find that such wojuld have been the case but for circumstances connected with her pro- peHy, which is considerable, and made it prudent to defer the nuptials. Shang has burst two of the many banks in Deadwood, and there is no knowing what he will do ibis time, hej is arranging to "get some purchase onitbeboys.."--Duluih Tribune. ' adequate idea of the really, great futu of Bismarck if its fortuneefremain in t hands of its friends. There must, in the v|ry nature of things, be a great commercial point whe -e the Northern Picific Raijrcjad crosses tl e Missouri river, and at present,! the fatss are subject to the will of) ydur citize is and the management of th| railroad; at.d it is to be most ardently desired that no divided counsels 01 private interests may nterfere with the now apparently inevitable course of events. I am old enough to remember the time wharf the location of Fort Snelling was considered with ts government : reservation! 'to c»ver"· tlie site of the future great citjl of the northwest,- and a few risky traders set up thi ranches just outside the reservation on the north bank of- the Mississippi, at a place called "Pig's Eye/' but thi government held on to its "town site" ijjntTl Pig's Ej}e traders became great merchants, and day, thanks to their indomitable ene: and united efforts, Pig's Ej|e is St. Pa! with Minneapolis far it.expansive nefglk- bor, and the embryo ; gredt c.i(y. is still [a ew dilapidated government barrae cnown on the map as Fort|Snelling.
