New York has received at last into lier arms ttye "gpddess of liberty en­ lightening the wdrld," but the money lor the completion of the pedestal on which the goddess is to stand, pours in very slowly. -4 The credit of the State of New York is at the highest point. Applications are pouring in for the new loan of $4, 000,000 at 21-2 per cent, interest. If New York can get money for 21-2, 1 why not the United States. "A breath of free western air and a view of Lake Michigan," is the pre scription of a Chicago paper for Gen. Grant.

... VAMHALL MCCLUBE. J. O. WABNOOK. TnR report sent out that frauds arc dis­ covered in the navy department of the government makes an impression upon the public ubout like the announcement that the sun had ri«en as usual would make. It would have created great sur­ prise had the announcement been au­ thenticated that no frauds were discov­ ered in the navy department. The navy itself is a fraud on the name. It might I tetter be callcd the boating club of the government, if the social rowing clubs would not protest. The books show a large amount of navy material purchased and paid for but investigation fails to discover the material. The next point will be lo discover who were the thieves and who the officers that were in collu­ sion with them. ONE of the extremely pleasant features of the Fourth of.luly festivities at Valley City was the presentation of a beautiful gold beaded cane each to Hon. II. S. Oli­ ver, of ltansom county, and Hon.

gg^v !$.%« E &Uxt. l?toe & BY L. AJR3HA.LL McOLURE. JAMtiTOWN, 1 DAKOTA,. Professor Atwater of Wesleyan uni­ versity asserts that the New England dishes—pork and. beans and codfish and potatoes—approach more nearly than any others the standard of the .deal ration. It is not understood, nowever, that the professor would like this ration for every meal of the year.'' It is estimated that the aggregate fire waste of the country during une is $6,750,000, which is §250,000 more than the average normal loss in June for ten years past. There were thirteen fires whose reported aggregate loss was more than one-fourth of the entire loss of the month. The total loss for the first six months of the year is $50,750,000. It will be curious to notice the decrease in fire losses when the times grow better. From a report made to the British Government by its Consul General at Frankfort, it appears that all over Germany the consumption of ardent spirits is rapidly increasing, especially among...

People arc ready to swear that'the census enumerators have not caught near all the residents. The census report will show a gain of almut four hundred and fifty per cent in the last Ave years which ought to satisfy the most extravagant idea of increase.

(j Florida proposes in her new consti i1 j-v A tution to raise an adequate sum of money to educate all her children without distinction of color. It au­ thorizes a one mill state tax, and a county tax of not less than three nor more than five miles on the dollar, tor common school purposes. It also permits, by the will of a majority, a district school tax of not more than four mills on the dollar. Arrangements have been made to ship a cargo of tea direct to St. Paul fromTacoma, on the Northern Pacific, on the arrival of the steamer Isabel at that point from Japan. Thin may be looked upon as an experiment, which is almost certain to result in the establishment of a regular line of steamships between Tacama and Yo­ kohama, a very much shorter route than that via San Francisco and Union Pacific.

KABBHAU. HoOLUBE. J. O. WABNOCK. THE NATION'S Dt'AD IIERO. The announcement of the death of Gen Grant, which went over the w:res Thurs­ day morning, was a shock to the people although it wai not an unexpected result of the ailment that for nine months has been gradually and steadily consuming the vitality of the great soldier. He met the grim monster with that imperturbability characteristic of bis private and public life, as he had met the vicissitudes of busi­ ness in the capacity of a private citizen, as he had met the foe on the battle fields of the war of the rebellion, as he bad met the emergencies and attacks in political life as chief executive of the nation. As a business man he was what the world would call a failure, but the very peculiar characteristic that made him a failure in' business pursuits made him a success as a general in the army. He was a stoic unmoved by conditions and cir­ cumstances that made other ineu almost wild with excitement. He wasccol, cil culating...

JAMESTOWN, R- DAKOTA The trial of Louis Iliel lias been ad­ journed for a week to allow him to procure witnesses to the various points of his defence." Tho intense heat of last week was the cause of many deaths in the large cities. It played sad havoc with chil­ dren. The great majority of deaths •were from cholera infantum, though there quite a number of sunstrokes. Ella Wheeler Wilcox, a poetess of some celebrity, has prosecuted Col. •Toyce for printing a poem entitled "Solitude" and claiming to bo the au­ thor. Mrs. Wilcox says she wrote that identical poem at Madison, Wis., Feb. 10, 1883. She intends to squelch Joyce and all his pretensions, and to copies have royalty for all that have been published with his name attach­ ed. Joyce's bad reputation is a strong point in favor of Mrs. Wilcox's fiuit. The foreign immigration during the last fiscal year was 122,000 less than the year preceding ami...
