SINCE the recent publication of Mr. Crawford's interview with Mr. Blaine in which the latter stat9«l that he would not be a candidate for the presidency, the democratic papers have ceased their gabble about his duplicity and insincer­ ity. There is no longer any doubt about it in any person's mind. The man who has for a generation lived among the storms and breakers of national politics intends now to leave that sea and enjoy the remainder of his life in quiet happi­ ness and agreeable studies. THE newspapers which are laboring for division of the territory are making a great fuss over the fact that Dakota was named in an omnibus bill with three other territories. Now why it is a dis­ grace to a Dakotan to be mentioned in...

WANT DAKOTA'S HARD WHEAT. The London Miller Urges Upon Eng­ lish Miliars the Importance of Se­ curing Dakota Wheat. The London Miller is an English jour­ nal published in the interests of the flour nulls of Great Britain. Some extracts from a recent number of the Miller will be read with interest by all who are in any way connected with wheat growing in Dakota. The paper says: For more than a year past we have urged upon the millers of Great Britain the obtaining, by some means or other, better value for the money which they ex­ pend on the purchase of American North­ western wheat. It is difficult to compete with the flour milled in Min­ neapolis from wheat selected and, in many cases, bought from the farmer direct. Therefore wo pressed upon our millers the absolute nocossity of taking steps to place themsolve on even terms with their competitors in Minneapolis. To do so much, thev had, after all, only to band together and put themselves in direct communication with the wheat growe...

I 1 I lv men who wear corsets NOT ALL AMERICANS, AS A FOR­ EIGN PAPER INTIMATES. Engllshmcii untl German Military Officers "Wear Corsets—TJie Sorts of Men Who Resort to Bracing of This Kind—Three Classes of Wearers. An English newspaper recently pub­ lished a lony article on the subject of stays or corsets for men. The little information the article contained -was credited to au American interviewer, and only American men of fashion were accused of having a weakness for this feminine necessity. The fact that many men wear corsets has been known for some time, but. the statement that the habit is confined to Americans is entirely new and utterly false. It is and always lias been difficult to get any posi­ tive information on this subject from the persons who make the corsets or the men who wear them. The former are reticent from a business point of view, while the latter vehemently deny that they wear stays because they are ashamed of it, which is to their credit. There is a large bu...

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27.—The most acute and observant politicians here think that there will be no tariff bill passed at this session of congress. Not that the body would not act upon one which was prop­ erly presented, but because the ways and means committee are not able to form a bill which they will feel like pre­ senting. Said one of the most prominent senators: The ways and means committee has not yet completed the tariff and they •don't know when they will complete it. The more they ponder over it the further they get from a satisfactory adjustment of the difficult features of it. That tariff bill has been put together and taken apart, like a child'...

A Fierce an«l Sarcastic Attack on the Democratic party for Their Opposition to the Measure—-A Sharp lie ply From Senator Blackburn. WASHINGTON, March 8.—la the senate the principal event was Senator Ingalls' speech upon the pension bill. The at attendance in the senate was not a slight compliment to Mr. Ingalls.. It has been expected for a week that lie would speak, and the galleries were not only packed but the corridors leading to them were densely crowded. Mr. Ingalls scored Senator Vest, of Missouri, for hia recent attack on the Grand Army men, when he had denominated them a mob of sordid plunderers. Regarding the president's position, he said that since the Democrats had put such a man as Cleveland in the presidential chair there was no man in this country whose ignorance was so profound, whose ob­ scurity was so impenetrable, whose ante­ cedent so degraded that he had not the right to a...

A storm which if not a blizzard is yet a near approach, to one, arrived itli the first day of spring. March certainly comes in like a lion but whether it will make good the old adage and go out like a lamb remains to be seen. The storm is the worst since the memorable blizzard of January 12th. Snow has fallen steadi­ ly for over twenty-four hours and has been badly drifted by the wind. Tolegraphic reports state that the storm is general all over tho northwest. Fargo reported the wind blowing a hurn cano and tho storm a porfect blizzard last night. This is probably greatly ex­ aggerated, but judging from the way trallic is interfered with there must have been quite a blow down in Minnesota. As usual the railroads get tho worst of the storm.
