HJFC THE (Continued Charles from First I'nge,) the Northern Pacific prevented them from casting unprejudiced votes oon measures affecting that company. Newman was one of the excursion party, didn't think the acceptance of transRation was a sale of his vote. He tated tins in a caustic manner and for a few minutes the darts that passed tween these two statesmen were all poioned. The discussion of tho measure was longed and spirited, all of the orators participating. Jones, the volcano from Mix, that is ever in a state of eruption) did some pathetic work in the interest of the dear people and seemed to entertain the opinion that this lature would accomplish no more in the direotion of strangling tho great "incubusses" tb u) the last.

He stated ter adjournment that his predictions, made during those stormy days early in the session, that ''we will laad on our posteriors in the that surely be verified. When the firing had ceased, all known tactics in parliamentary warfare had been employed and the smoke had ed away, this was seen to be the result of the bautle: The committee of the whole decided to recommend that the ation of all three bills be indefinitely postponed. The committee arose and made this when so amended that none of the real object of the report remained. The amendment to the effect that the Morris bill be exempt from this general pigeon-holing prooess and that measure is still ing. It was referred and may be called tomorrow.

Thi9isa victory for its author and his running mate, Jones, and a defeat for Fletcher, principally, while the alliance can hardly be considered a party to the contest. The bill authorizing the governor to appoint women notary publics was placed upon its final passage and when the votes were counted the ayes were in a very spectable General Skinner's scholarly and chivalrous ion that it is in violation of the organic act to the contrary notwithstanding. The bill telling attorneys just what they can charge in certain cases was definitely postponed. Long's legislative Hand book bill passed. The committee on territorial affairs recoBimended thai the joint memorial to congress praying for the continued occupancy of Port Abraham Lincoln do pass.The committee on education reported favorably on the council bill locating the agricultural college at Valley (Jity and the ance committee also recommends the passage of Van Osdell's high license bill which passed the council last week, but so amended that it shall go into effect immediately after its approval.

IN THE COUNCIL. In the council among a large mass of unimportant measnres disposed of is found this of more or less passage of the council bill repealing the act requiring the foreclosure of real tate mortgages by advertisement. The committee on territorial affairs reported favoring the establishment ot a blind asylum at Pierre and recommending that Aiken's house bill making a farmers' note full and complete payment of ance policies, be indefinitely postponed. NOTES AND COMMENT. Bills continue to be introduced in both lioases, but they are generally of but tle, if any importance.

The consideration of the governor's veto of the Hot Springs soldiers home bill is special order for tomorrow in the house and much interest is felt in the it is in some doubt. The little three year old daughter of Senator Miller of Richland county, who has been down with the scarlet fever but was regarded as convalescent, was denly attacked by croup on Thursday evening and died on Friday forenoon. This makes the third time this session that death has attacked the family of a councilman. Jamestown is ably represented by a large delegation of third ho users here day. Its complexion resembles an asylum lobby, but this may be a mere fancy.

Among the number are Dr. Archibald, Major Lyon, F. E. Jones, and George Webster. The legislative excursion returned from Helena last night and the members are now under the doctor's care, and with careful nursing will be able to be about by the end of the week.

It pears that of the sivty-seven junketers, only ten belonged to the legislature, the remainder being credited to the third house. A good deal of a rumpus has been kicked up by some of the stey-athome members who heard that diverse, baseborn clerks and other menials were masquerading under their cognomens, but no deaths hare been reported at present. There is liable to be a lively fight next Thursday over the report of the priations committee who it is said will reoommend the passage of an omnibus bilL This will lump all the tions for the different institutions into one bill, partly witb the object of tying the hands of the governor, by forcing him to either accept or veto the bill as a whole, as he has no power to veto any special part which he may deem unneoessary, but must reject all or none. It is to be hoped that ao unneoessaiy ses will be provided for in the bill, as if it is rejected by the governor there will not be time for reconsideration and no funds will be available for the support of the present institutions. A strong effort will be made, however, to provide for some new institutions in the bill.

TEKRlTOItlAI. TIPS. It is currently reported that on and after April 1st. 1889, the Kindred hotel at Valley City, will change hands. The limit of bonded indebtedness will permit Griggs county to buy $12,000 worth of seed wheat for destitute farmers.

The Homestake mine near Deadwood is colonizing its underground works with cats, and all persons who have any felines to snare are contributing to the tion. Grand Forks will have a new Opera house to seat 1,000 and cost The building will be 60x120 feet, and will be located near the new hotel. Work is exto begin about May 1.

D. M. Donahey, a prominent farmer near Ipswich, committed suicide yester day by taking strychnine. Financial trouble was thought to be the cause. He was a large farmer and stockraiser and was much respected.

He was a member of the Congregational church and was 38 years old. Aberdeen Republican: Dick Collins and Fred Johnson had a scuffle and a shooting scrape in a Frederick hotel. Collins was shot, but not dangerously. Men certainly have not much to do when they can find" time to scuffle over shooting irons.

De Smet Leader: The legislature should not repeal the militia law. kota has two regiments of well organized militiamen, and the expense in getting them organized, uniformed and drilled has been too great to disband the panies now. As the law stands there is enough appropriated to hold an ment at least once in two years, and the expense is not very great considering the benefits derived. Mandan Pioneer: Banker Mears of Mmot is a very pushing and enterprising man.

There is no doubt about it. But is not an attorney fee of 8200 a little steep for a mortgage the face of which is below $1000? Especially has this a crooked look when Mr. Mears himself is is the attorney and furnishes the money, too. Mr. Mears will bear watching.

He is bearing down a little too hard on the farmers of Ward county. One of the most sensational murders ever known in North Dakota occurred in Dickinson yesterday. John Holler, a German farmer, with a wife and five children, lived on a farm two miles from here. Holler and wife quarrelled. Mrs.

Holler today went to the neighbors for safety, her husband hfcvwg threatened to kill her. After her departure the man locked his five children in the house and fired it.

Bismarck people are badly soared by the scarlet fever and the churches were closed Sunday on that account. In a letter to the Tribune the mayor says: I can but repeat request to those in charge of all entertainments of whatever to delay them for a few days until confidence is restored and the extent of exposures learned, and in the meantime I would advise every family to use crude carbolic add (which is a cheap ity) by exposing in open vessels in their cellars the odor, whieh will find its way through the entire house, also fumigate with sulphur and try and stamp this welcome visitor out before it does becoom an epidemic. I am not an alarmist, but I do believe in the doctrine of vention of diseases by thorough sanitary measures and not wait until the little ones are exposed before bemoaning the presence of a terrible scourge.

E. J. Heath of Jamestown, is iting with Mr. and Mrs. H.

Heath. The principal sickness which seems to be visiting our neighborhood is severe colds. Miss Mary Villars is quite ill, having been confined to her bed for several days.

WINDSOR NOTES, It is rumored that Owen Hardgraves is goiag into the sausage business, and as Owen is taking quite an interest in dog flesh of late, it is possible the report is true. It was hinted some time ago that there would be a grand ball given at the Castle hotel March 4th. We are all patiently waiting a more definite announcement remember that time is drawing near. Everybody wondered why Grant Cowan wore such a broad, goodnatured smile the other morning as he passed up on the train.

But all ceased to wonder, when it was made known that an addition had come to his family in the shape of a baby boy. It is time the people of Windsor would wake up and shake themselves and try and do something towards making a cent road between here and Jamestown. It is perfectly awful such a road as we have to travel during the summer months. Let somebody and everybody get interested in this thing, then we will get something done and not before. Hurrah for the state of North Dakota! So says all the people around Windsor.

Every body is well pleased that at last Dakota is frea, and that her star (or stars) will be allowed to shine forth on the flag of our nation. Even our est kickers have not a word to say against what has happened. Don't know as we have an office-seeker in our town, but when the machinery is in running order, think we can furnish a crank to run it with, if one is needed. Why it is One Sweet Melody Will Charm.
