HPr'nW'i ||(4 -41? .J ir 4 wwt\v* PW* KELLOGG & TUCKER, Publishers. JAMESTOWN, I DAKOTA. It is now thought congress will not adjourn before the first of August. If hot weather comes in May and June the situation is liable to a sudden change. The latest reports from the spring wheat sections are very favorable, especially in Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebras­ ka, Minnesota and Dakota. The in­ dications are for slightly decreased acreage in Wisconsin and Minnesota, and aconsiderable increase in Dakota. The reports from some of the winter wheat states are anything but favor­ able. The tide of emigration from Germa­ ny, which has been ebbing for some years, showed the greatest proportion­ al falling off in the year 1885. Ac­ cording to statistics lately gathered the number of Germans leaving in 1885 by the three chief ports, Ham­ burg, Bremen and Stettin, was but little more than half the number for the year 1882. In two respects the delegation from Philadelphia is the most remarkable in Cong...
