In Minnesota the patriots who visited that state to urge the populists to save the country by helping elect democrats .o office, found no encouragement. On the Tactile coHi the fusion proposition was mat with bitter opposition and tt eems unlikely to be accepted. In. the populists, In their state convention, not only rejected the proposition, but went to the extent of displacing from the national committee one of the Indiana members who favored fusion, and elect --. a non-fusioulst in his place. This plan ot removing fu-slonists from the national committee has been received with so much favor by the populists In other sections of the country that a counter movemenl to prevent the complete elimination of lu-sionists from the national committee has beeu begun by the presentation at a new rule providing that members of the national committee cannot be removed without the approval ot that committee itaeif.

In Great Britain and roost other mon archial governnieiiis the power to declare war Is tbe exc.usive prerogative of the crown. liut In this couutry, when It In decided tl at we have casus belli oa our bauds and that war must or ought to be mailt-, it Is uecessary to begin proceedings 111 accoidauce with that clause lu the Federal constitution which stipulates that the sole power to declare war rests in Congress. The president may recommend it, or even urge tt, as he has done on two occasion in our history, uut congress must agree with him and pass the enabling act before a siaie ol war can exist. And in this necessary acuou of the Federal Legislature lie mummed possiuiiiilea of unlimited, t'cilei aud Joneses and other six -day orators putting off the opening of hostilities (or an Indefinite period. In the matter of war with other nations we have ouiy two precedents to go upon, the war wuu England in 1812 ' and the war with Mexico in 184$, and for certain reasons iiuitiier of these la very helpful for pickcut guidance. Look lug back upon it now, tne American people of to-day aie unanimous iu the conviction that the war of 1812 was perfectly Jusliliabic, and the only wonder Is that the people of that day endured the insults and outrageous conduct ot the Kugllsh on land aud sea as loug as they did without striking back, liut clear and good as the provocation lor thai war seems to us now, it did not seoui so to all the people then. The question whether war with feugiuud su-iuid be declared was made a parly io: ue between the federalists, led by tUuuolph, and the republicans, led by Cm), the former de claring that peace otignt to be main tained at almost any puce, and the lat- ter Insisting that not a day ought to be lost In avenging the wrongs which America had suffered at the hands ot Jugland. There was a lieice and acrl-iuonious debate ou the subject, lasting through the whole session of 1811-12, and the act declaring war was passed Anally by the lower no use with a majority of only thirty votes, aud after- (ward In the senate by a majority ot only six. The "war-hawks," as they were called, were mostly Southern men, while New England and New York were the "hot- beds " of the peace-mak sirs. In the case of the Mexican war mat ters moved more rapidly. Wt are far Jrom being unanimous at this time as to the necessity or the righteousness of that struggle on our part, but the people then were practically unanimous In smpport of tt. Uut after the deliberative and legislative stage ot proceeding Is over, and rwar has been actually declared by act ot congress there are certain observance enjoined upou us by International Saw which would prevent our pouncing forthwith upon the Vlscaya, if U were in the harbor at that time, or doing vlo Jejce lo the Irst body of Spaniards fwho tell In our way. One of the darkest deeds set down tu the credit of Napoleon Is that, upon the rupture with England after tne peace of Amiens, be lordered the immediate arrest ot all Englishmen then In France between 16 ana 60 years of age, and kept most ot them Imprisoned for more than ten years. Even the Turks feel compelled -to do better then that In these times, lor ou the outbreak of the late war with Greece they gave all the Greeks on Turkish territory thirty days to get Ibeyond their reach if they could. The Vxuct number of days of grace to be g, Wen to an enemy uiulor such circumstances does not appear to be fixed by ny law, but the period must be long enough to give everyone a fair chance lo look out for himself. The Ambassadors and other resident officials ot the opposing nation must be given official notice that their room Is better than their company, and time to shake off our dust from their feet In a dignified way. When all has been done, and the president has Issued his proclamation and his call tor men. when the govern ors have responded, the munitions ibave been prepared, the equipments provided, the big guns ready, the decks cleared, then, and not until then, will ! be prepared to engage in the heroic business of vindicating national honor rand slaughtering our fellow men. A POPULIST PREDICAMENT. l Theenvbarrassmcnts which Chairman Jones and his popullst-sllver allies en-sewnter In their effort to make the liver cause the cbelf Issue of the com-Jag campaign, multiply as they hear from the varlom parts of the country. 5"he populists are recelvlnf the fusion Large Interest in a Southern Hilis Property Sold to a Chicago Party. Miniature Hoisting Plant That Answers Every Purpose and Costs Little. P. L. Edholm yesterday soM to Dr. H. 11. Muggiey, of Chicago, his entire Interest in nineteeu claims which lie three miles southeast ot the new camp. Hornblende, near Koch ford. The prop erty has been pretty well developed and Is considered e, bas piospect by those who are familiar with It. A shaft has been sunk 100 feet below the surface from the bottom of which the formation has been cross-cut 70 feet on one side ot the shaft and 50 feel on the other. Several l dges of ore have beeu exposed by the ilevelapinent work, on the east side there beinij a 30-foot ledge of base ore from which assays have been had running from $1 to J40 per ton In metal value. A vein ot tree- milling and concentrating ore, ranging from 16 Inches to three feet In width, was opened on the west side the ore from which has assay between $15 and 25 per ton free-milling, beside carrying considerable value In the con centrates. Dr. Muggley informs us that the own ers will perform extensive development work on the property, commencing In the near future, and expect to develop a fine producing property. Plans have been made for a small smelting plum and the owners ot the property may, de cide to build It this se3on. A MODERN HOIST. A nobby little steam bolst standing In the front show window of the Ayres & Wardman Hardware company's es tablishment attracted t great deal of attention yesterday. It looks like a model of a hoisting plant, while In far: It Is one of the smallest sized machines manufactured oy the Hendrle ft Balt-hoff Mfg. Co., of Denver, and It It will perform the work guaranteed by th makers. Is a wonder. The machine covers not to exceed 4x5 feet of floo' space and stands about three feet high; Its weight Is 2.000 pounds. It consists of two engines with cylinders 4xi Inches inside, that run at n speed of 2xi revolutions per minute. The engines run constantly, the drum upon which the cable is wou ld being tel In motion by throwing a 'ever that sets a lar ft- friction driver Prmly upon another drum on the main shaft of the engine. The machine la guaranteed to hoisi 1,000 pounds 500 feet and It Is said It U absolutely reliable and very durable. A ten-horse-power boiler will supply the required stara pressure to operate It A steel cable M or may lie used and the drum, though small, will hold the amount necessary to hoist 600 feet. The little machine Is Just the thing for prospecting and does not cost a for tune. 0. and D. Smel'er. The board of adjusters, who have been at work the past few days adjusting th loss sustained by the Deadwood nd Delaware Smelting company. through the destruction of Its smelter. In this city, two weeks ago, completed Its work and agreed with Dr. F. R. Ca. penter. manager of the company, upou a settlement, yesterday. The board con slstcd of J. F. Edmonds, ot this city, who represented a number of the companies carrying large risks, W, E Hitchcock, of Omaha. H. H. Frledley. of Chicagu, superintendent of the loss department ot the Royal and Col. Thos. II. Smith, of Chicago, a general adjuster. The report allows a total loss on thj main building and machinery and the whole amount to be paid la $76,000, of which $40,000 Is on the main building and $35,000 on the boilers, engines, fur naees, etc. Dr. Carpenter Informs us that the amount will not cover the loss by considerable and that It should have been larger. The trouble was, said he, In the division ot the insurance; there waa too much on the reverbratory building, dust chambers, masonry, office building, etc., which were not damaged and not enough on the main building and plant The doctor does not blame the adjusters nor criticise their work; on the contrary he thinks they have shown a disposition to be fair and just. A large crew of men will go to work this morning clearing up the debrli and removing the warped machinery preparatory to commencing work ot reconstructing the plant Another crew ot men Is engaged cleaning out the well and bedrock dam and retlm-berlng the shaft It la the Intention to of men Is engaged cleaning and retlm enlarge these underground openings to procure a larger supply of water. Dr. Carpenter has designed and outlined the new plant and has his data ready for the architect and mechanical engineer to make plan and specifica tions for the new building. He says the new plant will he considerable larger In are, than the former one and will be the moat complete In th country The buildings will be solid steel and Iron throughout, without a particle ot wooden material about It When tht smelter was built, tt was the most complete mill ot th character In the country and waa copied exten sively, especially the furnaces, and at the time of the fire was doing th best work and giving the most satisfactory results ot any matt smelter on this dwitlnonl.

Hi appeal-ance 1 that of a quiet young ranchman or cow-boy. Ou?'7 or sot guilty, the Putneys ar surely food stock. They stand by their own In adversity, and If th son of such a father has fallen, his pljnge from honesty and respectability waa a long and dlssy on. Mr. Tempi believed that th wit nesses for the stat were mistaken to Identifying Putney. They had never seen th man they took for Putney before, and In the excitement and fear natural to the moment, could not b ex pected to retain a clear Impression of him. He claimed that Putney did not break Jail. That he simply walked out when the way was clear as many an Innocent man, yielding to Impulse and the love ot freedom, had done before. This point, if established, will toll in Putney's favor, as the man who held the guns upon Marble and Tlchnor would naturally hav been the leader in the break for liberty. At th morning session the stats placed upon the stand Henry W. Tlchnor, E. W. Mitchell, jeweler, and C. A. Dana, druggist, and A. H. Shochley, of Bell Fourche, who swore with more or less poaltlveness that Putney was ons of the bold, bad, four. J. D. Hicks, stock detective, John Minefield, Jailer, and ex-Sheriff Manning cave evidence bearing upon the pursuit, capture, es cape and re-arrest of the bank-robbers. At 2 p. m. the slate rested and after the opening address the following testimony waa given for the defense. Ell M. Putney, the father, mads an evident Impression upon jury and audience. He stated that he was a farmer In Marshall county, Kansas. In an swer to questions he said that he had represented his county In ths se&at during territorial days. Calmly and In a tone which attested bis sincerity, the father testified to the good character anr dutkfulnees of his son. He had left home nine years before at the age of 18 to go lo Wyoming, and had visited his home and Invalid mother on several ore as Ions since. Attorney W. B. Dwlnnell, a former resident of Marshall county, and a rhool-tnate of Putney .gave him a good character. Joseph Ford, ths barber, who knew the defendant at Casper, said that hs was a quiet, sober, and orderly man. He was foreman for one of th stock outfits. P. D. Clayton, formerly of Bene Foun-he, swore that during a conver sation with Arthur Marble at ths Bells Fourche bank, th latter had said that the four men brought back were not the robbers. Clayton's testimony, while not seriously Impaired, WM not strengthened by Attorney Bios' lncl slve cross-examination. Curly Raney waa a good witness tor the defense. He swore that he mat the four robbers a short distance from Belle Fourche on th morning of th affair, and talked with on of the Jones boys for twenty minute. Had known him upon the round-up. Putney wu not of the party. Raney was positive in his statements, and Mr. Rice's adroit questlone did not impair th weight of this testimony. After considerable sprlng over the admission of a tranecrlnt ot the test! mony, offered by th defense to Im peach the evidence given at to the Id en tlty of Putney, which Judge Moore refused to admit an adjournment waa ta ken. The case promises to develop interest Ing, If not sensational and pathetic feature at to-day's sesetoos. NOT BUYINO HORSES. Major Wells, ot ths Eighth United State cavalry, stationed at Ft Meade, was In this city yesterday. Questioned concerning the telegram that went out to the eastern press dated Ft Meade, recently, to effect that th government had agents out through the ranges of the Black Hills buying and contracting for cavalry horses, th major said there Is absolutaly no truth In th statement There are no agents out buying horses tit all. The report doubtless originated from a small advertisement Inserted in a local paper by several of the young men at the Fort who advertlaed for. a few ponies to be used In playing polo. The major says that no orders havs been received at the Fort to prepare the troops to be moved, in fact nothing that would Indicate a warlike more or condition.

It Is slntle cylinder apparatus, mounted on two wheels, which on roller-bearing axles. Ihe ro' .r-bearing device is a late idea in Ore extinguishing apparatus, and like lU ball-bearing wheel, reduces the to a minimum. Tlie cylinder, o ntalning th extinguishing fluid, is of a capacity ot fifty-five gallons and will supply a con tlnuous stream for fi-m fifteen to twenty snlnutes. One L' udred and 111 ty feet of hose is carried, of a diameter slightly greater than ordinary garden hose, but of different texture and much greater strength. The extinguishing power of the fluid Is estimated to be 40 times as great as taat of an equal amount of water. The working po-- tion of the apparatus consists of tne cylinder or tank partly filled with wa ter containing calcium carbonate. In the upper part of the cy'lnder is suspended a glass vessel vontalning a quantity ol sulphuric acid. The work ing oi a lever precipitates the add into water and sets up a chemical action, which results in the formation of carbonic acid gas. The water being hlgu ly charged with this gas, becomes . most efficient flie extinguisher. Car bonic acid is the heaviest gas known to t dentists, being many times heavier than the air. li consequently setuei down over the substance in combustion precludes the oxygen of the itmos-pnere and actually smothers but tne fire. The usefulness of the apparatus. In Incipient fires, cannot be over Mil- mated, as It is ready for action the mo- raent it reaches the burning build. n. It Is the intention of the department to house the extinguisher In the Are quarters in the rear of the city hall build ing. For this reason It was thought expedient to wait for warmer weather before putting it In service, as the wa-tr and acla might at any time become frozen in those exposed quarters, imo new "chemical" company will be form ed, but the extinguisher will be manned by present members of the department.

This is a season of great lawsuits In Deadwood. It Is but a week sines the Button-Golden Reward case, perhaps the greatest civil action ever tried In Lawrence county, drew to a close. And now the State vs. Walter Putney, I case which promises to become a crlm lnal cause celebre, is on trial before Judge Moore. The offence charged against Putnev Is that he was one ot the four desperate men, who on the 28th day of June last. entered the bank of Clay Robinson Co at Belle Fourche, and with drawn revolvers held up Cashier Marble, securing something less than $100.00, and a lively farewell from a dozen win cheaters, as they mounted their horses aud dashed madly out of town. Putney pleads not guilty, and the de mise outlined by his attorneys, Messrs. Temple and McLaughlin, la a double-barrelled one, mistaken Identity and an alabl. In his opening address to the jury Mr. Temple stated that he exnected show that Putney was at Thermopolls, Wyo., 240 miles distant from Ben Fourche "as the crow flies." while tie man alleged to be Putney waa looking along the blue barrels of two revolvers at the surprised cashier and clerk the Belle Fourche bank. He honed show that Walter Putney had always borne a good character, and was known about Thermopolls as a quiet, peace bis and law-abiding citlsen. He would open to the jury the past life ot the de- fendant and then ask them to say whether Putney's character and antecedents were those ot a tank robber and desperado.
