1 •.!-i BY LIZ.E3 HALL McCLUKE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. More tlian 4,500 bills, mostly of a pri­ vate nature liave been introduced into the house. Less than 200 have been acted on by committees and reported to the house. The fate of a vast majority can be easily guessed. They will go to the tomb, unwept, unhonored and un­ sung. The shame of so much buncombo business rests tipon representatives and their gullible constituents. The value of imports of silk goods in 1883 was $32,305,236, of which $18,140, 227 was during the last half of the year nnd/vr the new tariff, against$19,811,162 during the last half of 1S82 under the old tariff. This decrease indicates that this branch of manufacture has not been seriously impeded by the change of du­ ties, though the general condition of markets and the demands of employes have caused much depression. For the year the decrease in imports compared with 1882 was $6,32S,798. Stanley's complete success and De Brazza's correspondingly complete fail­ ure...

SESBETS. If you have a cherished secret, Don't you toll. Not your friend—for his tympanum Is a bell, With its echoes, wide rebounding, Multiplied and far rosounding Don't yoa telL If yourself, you cannot keep it, Then who can? Could you more expect of any Other man? Yet yon put him, if he tells it— If he gives away or sells it, Under ban. Sell your gems to any buyor In the mart Of your wealth to feed the hungry Spare a part. Blessings on the open pocket, But your secret, koep it, lock it In your heart. —Hiawatha Herald. The Oldest City. The poetic and exalting associations which naturally gather around the places we find mentioned in Holy Writ are too apt to be rudely dispelled on nearer view and close acquaintance for the ravages of time and the neglect of degenerate governments have left most of them forlorn and repulsive, and in­ habited the forlorn and repulsive peo­ ple—so traveler say.

TELEGRAPHIC The War on Ordway. WASHINGTON, Feb. 20—Although the opponent of Col. C. S. Palmer to succeed tbe late Judge Kidder, is believed to be a triumph for Ordway, yet it ia evident to those who see from the inside that the wily governor himself must go at the end of bit term in May. Southern Dakota is solid against him and so are the railway and newspaper interests of Chicago. He could not hope to defeat this combina­ tion were it not for a divrsion of senti­ ment in Dakota, llad he the solid sup­ port of the north half of the great terri­ tory with his wonderful power of orgam zationand aggressive warfare lie could bid defiance to the southern section and its Chicago alliances. T^hile he disdains any esire for a re-appointment he is laying underground wireu to treat his enemies to a surprise. His enemies are on the alert, anticipating a blow below the belt and they may not be disappointed, for he is a powerful plotter and has some strong in­ fluence to work his interest. From ...

A WOMAN OF SOCIETY. -Vhe Secret of Lady Blanche Dulcimer's Success is tho World. Lady Blanche Dulcimer was one of the best dressed women in the world. Oddly enough her love of display and tasteful extravagance did not manifest themselves until she became a widow. The late Colonel Dulcimer had lost a fortune at cards, and the only provision he was able to mako for her was by in­ suring his life for a few thousand pounds. And yet Lady Blanche had no sooner cast off her widow's weeds than she blossomed into a leader of fashion, and excited the envy and admiration of her friends by her costly toilettes. How she did it nobody could imagine, for her father was a bankrupt peer and none of her relatives were in a position to assist her. Her gowns alone must have ab­ sorbed the whole of her modest income, at the most moderate estimate, and these were not only inexpensive items of personal adornment which she in­ dulged in. It is true that she lived quietly, and did not attempt to enter­ tain...

ill 1 A HUNTER'S STORY. How be was Overcome and the Way by WlUcli he was Finally Saved. Correspondence Spirit of the Times. An unusual adventure which recently occurred to your correspondent while hunting at Brookmere in this state is so timely and contains so much that can be made valuable to all readors, that I von ture to reproduce it entire: The day was a most inclement one and the snow quite deep. Babbit tracks were plentiful, but they principally led in the direction of a large swamp, in which the rabbits could run without dif­ ficulty, but where the hunter constantly broke through the thin ice, sinking into the half-frozen mire to hiB knees. Not­ withstanding these difficulties, the writ­ er had perserved, although a very small bag of game was the result. VVoilo tramping about through a particularly malarial portion of the swamp, a middle aged man suddenly came into view, car­ rying a muzzle loading shot gun and com­ pletely loaded down with game of the finest description.

THE WEEKLY ALERT. J. C. WARNOCK, EDITOR. THERE has been a reorganization of the intellectual department, of the Fargo lloublicm in which Dr. J. It. Hall re­ tires and W. Plummer in installed as editor-in-chief. Dr. Hall is a man of high journalistic ability and we regret to see him retire from the field of Dakota journalism in which he has labored ar­ duously and ably for years But we are glad to know that, his place is to be sup­ plied by a journalist of equal ability in the person of 1 r. Plummer whose well earned fame as a brilliant writer and orator extends all over the Northwest. Th*. dispatches from Washington say that Co!. Donan is looming up as a suc­ cessor to Qov. Ordway. No man in the territory more dssjrves the honor than Col. Donan. His Fourth of July orations, speeches and{ writings, portraying the beauties, glories and lnexbaustiole re­ sources of Dakota have been read from the rivers to the ends of the earth and have attracted attention and directed emi­ gration to t...

HELENORE. She came to our door one dreary No­ vember day in a pouring rain, and begged in broken English that Ave would take her into our service. She belonged to a miserable French Canadian family that had lived in the city for many years but, shiftless and degraded as they were, it was evident from the young girl's account, that they considered her the black sheep among ilieni ami her mother, always harsh •with her, for some reason had recently grown more so, until that morning, af­ ter an unusually cruel beating, Hele ore— she said her name was Helenore Baldeau—had fled from under her hand, and shaking off the dust of her native alley, wandered, she neither knew nor cared whither, till hunger and fatigue led her to seek a shelter with us. Her plain and somewhat heavy face "was swollen and red with weeping, and there was a look of pleading in her great soft black eyes that was difficult to resist. "Oh. if you would but try me!" she said. "I can do good many cings I care onlv for s...

1 Aj 1 I 1 7 1 Bismarck and Lasker. Mr. Cnrtin, chairman of the liouso committee on foreign affairs, called on tho secretary of state recently to ascertain what he could do about the return of tho Lasher resolution. He says he learned from tho department that they had no official information that tho resolution had been returned. In tho first place, ho says, the resolution was not sent to Bismarck, but to our minister and tho president of tho represen­ tative body of the Gorman government. "What do you think would bo tho effect if it should prove true that tho resolution has been returned!" "That," he replied "would depend upon the manner in which it was done. I do not think Bismarck would word a reply in an offensive manner." "Do you think as many prominent Gorman Americans do, that Bismarck is trying to ex­ cite lis to war!" "That I think more than likely. That is the most probable thooiy I have heard." "In that event what would this government do?" "What could they do?" was the q...

^hc ^Icvt BY LIAKSHALL McCLUBE. .JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. Thetpapcrs report that many people •who have suffered by the loss of proper­ ty from the floods Of the Ohio and its tributaries, are proposing to sell out and "go west." They could stand a flood occasionally on alternate years,but •drowning out every year is beyond en­ durance. The lists of failures are growing short­ er and the signs of improvement in bus­ iness are becoming more frequent. Con­ fidence is being restored, and that means better times. Nobody expects a revival •of speculative booms but. the outlook for legitimate business is much better than for months past, This is especially true of the northwest, where the field is open for labor and capital!, and is not glutted with the one or tike other. A dispatch from East Saginaw, Mich., gays that Col. Hunt, a lately deceased millionaire who had a keen appreciation of humoir., bequeath'd in his will $5,000 to the mother of.C.iarles Brown ("Ar temus Ward"), and a similar sum t...

LOVE'S MIGRATIONS. The most exacting of the modern de­ votees of the aesthetic cannot bo satisfied with the aestlieticism of the day. For what is it? Onlv a crazy Ophelia with a garland of wheat and a swinging wil­ low. The grandmother of this love-lorn maid was called Transcendentalism for­ ty years ago. She was a veritable Jeanne D'Arc. Would she know her child in its crushed-strawberry gown, without an "over-soul," or even an over skirt? But, such as it is, let me show you oue of the sanctums, one of the shrines and altars where incense is burned to the goddess. Herr Heimlicher's studio has a gay party to-night. There they stand, man and maid, statue and picture, almost indistinguishable one from the other, in the dim mixture of moonbeams straying through the skylight and can­ dles on the tables. The declamatory Herr Heimliclier is mocked in his lively gestures by the graceful arms of a wood­ en figure clothed in scarlet and gold. Miss Polimus has posed by a picture of Judith, an...

fcV ii I •jv v'l fa .1' i" Sr- VOL. VI—NO. 32 THE WEEKLY ALERT. .1. C. WAENOCK, EDITOR. WORD FROM THE MAYOR. EDITOR DAILY AIERT:—I have^noticed in the two last issues of the Alert, arti­ cles concerning gambling in our city. I freely endorse each in the sentiments ex­ pressed, and am in full sympathy with every effort to suppress it in all its foims. The writer of the second article states that the subject will be presented to the mayor and city council, and that they being sustained by the press and nublt3 sentiment, will no doubt do their duty, it might naturally be inferred from the above that the mayor and council were incognizant ot wrong and required the gore of public sentiment and the press in order to discharge their duties In this connection allow me to say that there is no city ordinance prohibiting gambling at the present time. The mayor and coun oil have all along recognized the necessi­ ty and importance of one, but other mat­ ters, perhaps less important,have occupied...
