4%t £i0mtrck ^ibuite. BY M. H. JEWELL. DIVISION AND ADMISSION. When Senator Vest says that Dakota has not the requisite population to en­ title her to statehood, he utters what he knows to be false. Senator Vest is well acquainted with Dakota, its resources and its population, and that gentleman would stand much higher in the estima­ tion of Dakota democrats if he would speak out just what he means, .viz., that a democratic congress does not propose to either divide or admit Dakota at pres­ ent, and what are you going to do about it? The senator's arguments against the admission scheme are so weak that no other construction can jJjj^plaeed upon them. The bill now in the senate, providing for division and statehood of the south­ ern halt will pass the republican senates tffgobably tomorrow. It will then go to tiiA democratic house where it will meet its death. The republicans in the senate know this, therefore are they anx­ ious for the bill to pass their body. They want the responsi...

jpjf av» J- 4 1 1 & (*. 2 $t)i jfemarck (Nlmne. BY M. H. JEWELL. FABGO ABGUS: There is no expectation that the bill which has just passed the senate by a party vote, for the admission of South Dakota as a state, "will get through the house. In fact, it is doubt­ ful that it would have got through the senate had there not been entire confi­ dence that it would be killed at the other end of the capitol. The eighty or more democratic majority is a sure bar­ rier to its progress. There may be half a dozen or so of intelligent democrats who have been to Dakota and are shocked at the absurd fictions of the Missouri senator. They will possibly give it their votes, but party interests will dominate with the bulk of them,and if the bill ever reaches a vote, it will be effectually strangled. When the bill was introduced last winter the Argus pointed out some objectionable features in it. One was the provision that North Dako­ ta, which is to remain a territory, shall iftlra the name of Li...

Court News. From last Friday's Daily. Through an anaccountable mistake the item of application (w bail was omitted from the ooort report in yesterday morning'* TBIBCM. Application for bail was made by defendant's eounael and was refused without prejudice by the judge. The ground taken by counsel in support of claims for bail was that a man is ,innocent until he has been proven guilty. That Magill was tried on the charge of murder before an intelligent jury, not one of whom desired to return a verdict of guilty of the eridie charged In the indiotment, and six of whom were for acquittal. In view of these facts counsel be­ lieved that the presumption of innocenoe had b*en greatly strengthened and defendant should be admitted to bail. The court refused to admit Magill to bail, but gave his decision without prejudice. New appli­ cations may be mada until the court refuses with prejudice. YESTERDAY. The only case before the court yesterday, was that of the Elevator company va. the Bismarc...

A Plea for "the Dull Boy"—Pre-Natal Causes of Children's Mental Stu­ pidity—Some Other Causes— Things Worth Notingi [O. T. Johnson in Kansas City Journal.] By dullness is meant that low order or temporary condition of the intellect, which renders it unable to comprehend, to under stand, to reason. Dullness is tha result of either pre-natal or post-natal causes. Among the most prominent pre-natal causes are parental intemperance, including excesses of all kinds, parental disease, accidents, and direct transmission according to the law that like begets like. The dull brain is a dark, cold and dreary prison house, along whose mildewed walls, pale and sickly faculties, with outstretched palms, go slowly, groping, searching for a crevice, no matter how small, through which a gleam of light may creep. We finl existing outside the school, con­ tinuous or remitting causes, producing permanent or re...
