With the machinery they are placed In a fine large annex In which the absence of supporting posts affords an unobstructed view of the pyramid fine dairy exhibits and the working machinery. The oleo question will como up for consideration bo-fore the convention closes. o Poll Was Accurate. SIOUX FALLS, Dec. II The figures of the vote cast at the recent' election, as shown by the official couBt, prove the remarkable accuracy of the poll made under the direction of Chainian Crane and Secretary McNultyo f tho republican state committee, and shows that the republican victory in South Dakota was by no means a surprise to the republican managers. The poll of the state made by the republicans a few weeks before the election indicated that they would carry the state by lL'.OOU to 15,-000 plurality. The exact probable plurality shown by the republican poll was ir,t)4:i, which, however, allowing for several thousand doubtful voieis finally going over to the fusiniiiMH. was not expected to be reached when tho vote was counted. As MeKinley's plurality in the state is official 1 y placed at 12.9:ifi, the republican managers instead of being surprised, as many appear to think they were, confidently anticipated that they would any the state by almost the exact figures now shown by the official 'mint. Few Deadwood Cases Not of a Nature to Excite Any Alarm. The few cases of smallpox in Dead-wood arc not of a nature to excite any particular alarm. Otto Craig, who was a memlr of the First South Dakota volunteers and who had the smallpox in the Philippines, was in Deadwood Monday to see if his services as a nurse were required. He saw Dr. Itowman, who has been attending a majority of the cases, and was informed that the disease had so far been so mild in form as not to require mu h nursing. "The cases in. Deadwood so far have been of a mild type." said Mr. Craig, "and there is not the suffering that is usually seen in fully developed cases of smallpox in the Philippines. Tho smallpox germ does not seem to have attained its full development In the cases that have been found so far. and the skin eruptions are very mild. "I was sic k enough w hen I had it. and had to have a nurse' with tne all the time, to apply ointment and pre- vent ine from tearing myself to piee..s I had been vai'einated a short t,i; e heiovo I was taken down but the moiulat h i was not . oi'itdete. aitho in' aim wa; very ore at the time.

WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 11. Special Senator Uidge denies that Secretary of State Hav will resign if tho Hay-Pauncefote treaty is amended. Senator Lodge admits that a majority in tho senate is in favor of an amendment to tho treaty. Tho houso today passed a resolution calling for a congressional investigation into tho case of Cadet Hooz. who. it is reported, died as the result of hazing at est l'oint military academy. Hooz lived for several days after receiving his injuries, but refused to give the names of those who were responsible for bis death.

While Mel'lusky was down Anderson stepped up and kb ked McClusky on the bead with a number twelve thoe, cutting a slight gash. Henry Donovan, the polh e oflieer, took MeClusky to jail, while Anderson and a number of his friends went out the back door of the saloon and rushed down the alley. Officer Mr lnerney was put on'.o them and round ed them up before they went far, compelling Anderson to go with him to the police station. He stopped at the saloon to let Anderson get his hat. A large man who had witnessed the light remarked that Anderson had started it. and at this one of Anderson's pal, who had a Bowery swag ger. wanted to right the big man. Anderson was sitting in Judge Kar-ly's office while the lotnplaint was being made out. waiting to give some information. Mis friend, the bowery tough, stopped up to him and in a i stage whisper sab!": "Vuse don'! I . . i want to know anyttng about dis, see. One el the poli. emeu remonstrated with hint, and the tough began to abuse tho court and' Jill Us Officers. He was ordered thrown into a cell for contempt, and one of his friends who evinced sympathy for him, went with him. The man with the swagger continued to call to Anderson from the cell, telling him "not to give anybody away, or you'll go to do pen. see." and "tell 'em you was horn in Africa.'1 Finally the court ordered him sent over to the county jail. McClusky was still in a cell, and he began to talk loud. Officer Mclnery closed him up by offering to turn the hosp on him. Anderson became refractory then, and made allusions to a "kangaroo court" in a rich Swede dialect, and finally he was ordered over to the roifftty jail, to be held as a witness Hf nrotested vigorously.

The Chicago & Two Bit shaft is being retimbered, and it Is likely that it will be used permanently as soon as the company is ready to begin mining. Examining the Grand Junction. A gentleman who came up from Custer last night said a mining expert had just finished an examination of the flrand .Inn' Hon mine, and left on tbelbirlingtoii yesterday for the east. The expert was a Mr. Greene, who put in four days on the property, in the interest of New York men, who are negotiating for the mine. The Grand Jumtion Is one of Iho best known minim; properties in the -nuthorn Hills, anil is owned bv J. C. Spencer and several others. Including a Deadwood 'rentleman D. 0. Baker of Deadwood was In the east for several months during the summer ami fall on the deal, and if is said that the "ale will undoubtedly be made "s)0h". Holy Terror Strike Reported. I is rumored that rich ore has ljee-i found on the lower level of the Holy Terror mine. Those who hold stock in the (ompany are hoping that this may provo to be the case, as the company has recently been levying assessments on the stock, find last month each stockholder paiil three cents on every share in his name. It is behoved by many that the assessments are levied for the purpose of crowd ng out some of the stockholders. A! any rate the developments of the mine are being watched closely, and the small stockholders are all hoping that the as- . sessment will not be repeated. Imperial Shaft Under Way. The shaft recently started by the Imperial company on Blacktall ia thirty feet deep. It ls double compartment, and Is being constructed for permanent use. It Is on the main Blacktall gulch road, near the Wells Fargo workings. The company ia still pursuing the original plans with regard to putting up a cyanide paint In this city, and the plant will undoubtedly be started within a short time. 1 In a Private Car. A. B.

Gushurst to Accept Superintend-ancy for Colorado Company. The Call Is the authority for the following statement: "It was not generally known when P. A. Gushurst left for Denver. Mon day morning, that he was going for the purpose of making final arrangements to accept the snperlntendency of the new Colorado company which was recently organized to develop the mines which comprise what is generally known as the Kirk deal. Mr. Gushurst Is in Colorado now, and before leaving Informed some of his friends that he was selected as the superintendent of the company. He has or will, put considerable money Into the undertaking, and the members of the development company propose to sink a 1500-foot shaft. The site for the shau has been selected and the machinery win be Installed as soon as It Is needed. Work is expected to start on the shaft about the first of the year, and It will be pushed I vigorously until 1500 feet is reached. It would seem that such a proposition if placed in careful hands could not fail to be successful, and the benefits that will accrue to Lead will be Incalculable. We are not Informed as to when Mr. Gushuitot will return, but there isno donbt but that he will bring the superintendent's commission back with him.

Wyoming, in August, IST.i. ait.uu" as clerk at. the request, of the coroner. Mr. Robinson says lie knew both men. but he defines to talk for publieat ion. He says the killing occurred in a restaurant, over a woman, and there was no robbery in the case. There were several persons present at the shooting, and they testified before the coroner's jury. Kmil Kaust, of Lead was an undertaker at Kvanston, Wyoming, in 1 and he furnished the coffin in which the murdered man was buried. Me says positively that Harry Tier is not the man who killed Wheeler. Me says the i ireiiinstance of Tier having gone under the name of Harry I, yens for'seveial years after coming to the lil.-e k Hills had been discussed repeatedly by I.ead men who had formerly 'resided at Kvanston. but. they were all .T-T ed that he was not the man wanted fur killing Wheeler. At one time. Mr. fan t says, a deputy -herilT from I'intah county by the jtnme of "'Woods, came to Lead to sef-Tier. himself if Tin was the Harry Lyons wanted for murder. He said Tier was not the man. and went back to Kvanston without him. altho he claimed to bo aniuainted with tho man for whom the authorities were seeking. Jack Moran. who deals bank at the Derby saloon in Lead, was quoted Monday as having said that Tier was the right man. Mr. Moran says this is entirely a mistake. He says he was never in Hilliard or in Uintah county in his life, and never heard of the circumstances of the killing. NEBRASKA TOWNS QUARANTINE Smallpox Is Creating Alarm in Numerous Towns. "I advise you to stay away from Grand Island," said one traveling man to another at the Bullock hotel Monday night. "They have the smallpox there, and the town is quarantined, and It was expected that the mayor of Alliance would issue a quarantine proclamation Monday. Gene Wright went up to call on a young lady there Sunday night She met him at the door and told not to come in, as she had smallpox. It has broken out all over the state, and there have been three deaths at Grand Island, altho in all other places it is light. "At North Platte and several -other places, all trains that come in are disinfected, and they go thru the same process when they leave. The city council bought a fumigating machine and it is used on every one coming into or leaving the town." DEADVOODPUBLIC BUILDING. Messrs. Gamble and Burke Doing Good Work for the Bill.
