^U& gUcvt. BY LIARS HALL McCL\JRET lAMl^fONVN, QAKOTA "Ohio abolished the contract labot 3ydtem iu its Penitentiary year ago, 'and .the Legislature has bees confront­ ed at its present session with the prob­ lem of how to employ the prisoners. It has been settled by the passage of a bill providing for the introduction of the "piece" system. This has been re |eatedly tried, but has always proved expensive and unsatisfactory. New York, where there is great opposition ta prison labor, where it competes with free labor, is Also wrestling with. the question. There is but very little sentimental nonsense at the West regarding mur­ derers, before or after conviction. The trouble here is to control the impatience of the people for justice, which they are very apt to think, cannot be obtained by due process of law. Hence the numerous lynohings, some of which are scarcely less reprehensible than murder, and give communities which indulge in them very bad name where law and order prevails....

VOJ-. VI-NO. 37. McGLUKB- I. o. WABNOOK. Proprietor Editor THEME is vigorous kicking in the bouse of the territorial legislature over the ex hibltion of gall on the part of the council in unending house bills seemingly only for the flake of amendment, lit some cases the amendment consists only in a slight chantre of phraseology, without al tering the sense or meaning of the bill Some of the house members look upon it as aa indignity and a reflection upon the intelligence of that body. The spirit that has been aroused is not iikely to inure to the harmony of action between th two bodies, and if it is not mollified in some way, threatens to break out in reinitiation of like kind upon the council. THE bill, wmch seems likely to pass, taking a range of townships from the east side of Burleigh county and range 69 on the west side of Stutsman and add­ ing them to Kidder county will probably be supplemented in a short time by a bill dividing Kidder into two counties where­ by Steele will b...

I V» VOL. VI-NO. 38. IUIHUUI lfeOIiU&B. J. O. WARXOOK. TBSBS Prop'it. or Ed tor is a test case before tbe United States court under the Iowa prohibition law which prohibits railroad companies carrying liquor to any persons in the Btate except to those who have permits Tbe ground is that it interferes with in terstate commerce and the result is looked for with considerable interest by the legal fraternity as well as by the prohibitionists who were defeated in the courts when they thought they had a sure thing in the constitutional amendment. TBE species of class legislation by which it was proposed a few days ago in the legislature to exempt two thousand dollars worth of farm Improvementa from taxation seems to have dropped out of sight as suddenly as it came to the sur­ face. The originator of tbe bill seems to hare discovered that he was bucking against a principle as old as the federal government.

8»,* is» K. ..*'' i'i.O BY UCtRSHALL Mc71,17I\E. lAHLwiOWft, da rota Massachusetts has taken all the pre. liminary steps toward the adoption ot the biennial system of legislative ses­ sions. A special election to ratify the action of the Legislature on the subject will be held next summer, and the pro­ position will undoubtedly be ratified. General Grant's article on the battle -pf Shiloh, in which he denied that there was a surprise at the beginning, brings out a host of authorities controverting Gen. Grant's statement. All admit the surprise and think the hard fighting and victory afterwards wa§ all the more cred­ itable to the army on that account. "While stocks and general merchandise faave greatly depreciated in New York, real estate has increased in valuo and it Is believed it will escape the downfall that has attended the period of stagna­ tion, even though that period should be prolonged for a year. Mortgages have decreased more than twenty per oent. The abrogation by congre...

IT IS an unreasonable objection to the new secretary of the navy that he is al most unknown, for tbe navy itself is al­ most unknown. If it were not forth of­ ficer appearing in print every four years in making up tbe cabinet tbe people would lose sight of that department of the government, except a careless hshing schooner would occasionally run into and sink a man- of-war It would be a good plan to station a few regiments of tbe standing army around tbe navy and protect it from the reckless fishing smacks that flit on top of the waves. We may bave need of a navy sometime but we will not be likely to have one when we do need it. Perhaps to paint one on cany as and send a copy to all foreign nations would have the dtsirtd affect. WHETHER the legislature intends a practical joke on the territory by tbe pas­ sage of a prohibitory liquor liw or whether they are really in earnest will make no difference in the force and effect of tbe law if it should pass the council and receive the san...

The first thing lie observes is that the men till wear extremely large hats and the women no hats at all. The ordinary sombrero costs $15, while those bearing the handsome ornaments sri universally popular, tun iii price all the way from $25 to $250. The Mexican invests all his surplus in his hat. Men whoso wages itre not more than $12 a month often wear sombreros which represent a whole quarter's income.
