im Wi J" SkV# Jk *lfc* jm§. BY L/&R3HALL McCLUKE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. -The petty carping at New York be­ cause Grant's remains were allowed to rest thdre—-which wad his home—is 3imply disgraceful." New York is the metropolis of this' country, and will aventually be the metropolis of the world.. It is stilted that indications are. favorable for an immense cotton crop in most of the States where it i3 a staple. Texas will have tho largest crop that it -has ever raised. This will tend to keep the price of all cotton fabrics down to a level not higher than present figures. It is certainly somewhat peculiar that the cases of cholera that liaveac curred in Marseilles have been not among the Bqualid poor but among the wealthy. While usually cholera obtains its victims in thickly settled communities, where poverty prevents attention tp sanitary conditions, peo ble who habitually disregard the laws of health, are likely to be carried oi! ty it, even though they have the most desirable sur...

VOL. VIII-NO. 11. MARSHALL McCLUKE J. O. WABNOOK. In President Cleveland and Vice Pres­ ident Hendricks the two elements of the democratic parly are fittingly and forci­ bly represented. Cleveland represents the young, living and progressive cle­ ment of the party while Hendricks rep resents the fossilized, rock-rooted and bourbon element. Each has his support­ ers and each his opponents*in the party. Cleveland's motto is country lirst nnd party afterward), while Hendricks' po­ litical goapelM-partyfirHt-aiHlcoHntryaf-v terwards.

The Current Number of the North American Review contains the opin ons of eight sculptors and critics as to what the Grant monument should be and all of them would involve the expenditure of vast sums, one of them calling for the outlay of a million of dollars. It will probably be some time ere any of them are carried to completion by voluntary gifts.

Ken­ tucky comes next, with over 72,000, 000 bushels, and Nebraska follows, with over65,000,000 bushels. The wheat crop of the East .Indies is now estimated at 286,000,000 bushels for the present year.

The Feeling Between Germany and Spain. The reply of Germany to Spain's protest in reference to the former'n annexation ot the Caroline Island, has been received by the government at Madrid. It is couched in friendly terms, and in it tlio govern­ ment otters to submit the claims of Spain to the Carolines to a fair examination. The feeling in Madrid against Germany because of her assumption of pos­ session of these islands is so bitter us to cause alarm. The official press is more indignant over the seizureof the Caroline Is­ lands than the opposition press. Thenews nipersgenerally advocate reprisals. Count ^enzelms Sennewalde,German embassador, now abstains from attending the theaters and avoids the public promenades and places of amusement. It is eemi-oflicially stated that the government intondH to rupt­ ure the commercial and diplomatic relations existing between Germany and Spain unless Germany abandons hcrclaim to the Caro­ line Islands.

Either the world has come up so near to the standard of the daily, walk and conversation of church mem­ ber? or the church membcts have come down so near that of the world that it has become very difficult to distinguish the one from the other, unless seen .at church, Mid even there the contribution basket I alls to disclose and separate the sheep from the goats.

The Mon­ etary Conference which recently met and adjourned at Paris practically ended all hope of another congress. From all the accounts of the terrible destruction of property by fire in this country, insurance stocks must be pretty good property. In a list of fifty-seven companies reported for the Insurance Chronicle the latest quota­ tions show only five of the stocks be­ low par, while the others range all the way from three per cent, to 2,300 per cent, above. The "gilt edged" stock is in a company where the par of shares is $10 and the latest sales is $240. Census figures are coming in from various directions, and they show gen­ erally a great increase in the cities both East and West, and ...

T1IK DEVIL. Ken don't believe in a devil now, as their fathers use to dp They've forced the door of the broadest creed to let His Majesty through There isn't a print of his cloven foot, or a flery dart from his bow, To be found in earth or air to-day, for the world has voted so. But who i6 mixing the fatal draught that palsies heart and brain, And loads the earth of each passing year with ten hundred thousand slain* Who blights the bloom of the land to-day with the fiery breath of hell, If the Devil isn't and never was! Won't somebody rise and tell. Who dogs the steps of the toiling saint, and digs the pits for bis feet Who sows the tares in the field of Time wherc ever God sows his wheat The Devil is voted not to be, and of course the thing is true But who is doing the kind of work the Devil alone should do* We are told he does not go about as a roaring lion now But whom sha'l we hold responsible for the everlasting row To be hcurd in home, in church, and state, to the earth's remo...

The census, just taken, shows a popu­ lation af about 415,000, of which the counties holding a constitutional con­ vention next month have 260,000, and North Dakota enough more for a second state. The duties of the Sioux Palls convention, called to meet Sept. 8, as defined by law, are plain. The law says that the convention shall draft a constitution and provide for an election by# the people of South Dakota, at whicli election the consti­ tution shall be submitted to the peo­ ple for ratification, and at which elec­ tion the state officers, member of con­ gress, members of the legislature, and all other officers provided for in the constitution shall be elected.

-bUWCA' (l/V-l /H MARSHALL McCLUBE, Proprietor. VOL. VIII. J. O. WABNOOK, Editor THEUE ia an irrepressible conflict rag­ ing aud rankling between Mandan and Bismarck, which also involves .Judge Francis, on account of the change of venue asked by and grunted to Marquis de Mores. Some of the prominent citi­ zens of Mandan construe it as an asperr 8ion upon their sense of justice. It seems to the Alert that the people of Mandan worked themselves into a white heat over an affront that was entirely imaginary, it is hot an uncommon thing for a person accused of a capital offense to apply for a change of venue because of a supposed prejudice in the locality against him by the people, aud it isvfrvquently applied for au account of supposed prejudice of the court. W hcthcr this is real or imag­ inary it is the custom of courts to grant the application when there is no proba­ bility that the ends of justice will lie in any way defeated thereby. In view of the session of court immediately to f...

BY L'ABSHALL McCLURE. JAMESTOWN, DAKOTA. The decrease of the national debt during last month was $2,879,062.17. $he total debt, less available cash items, is now $1,523,408,880.21. It will be well if everybody takes time by the forelock and makes early preparations for the winter. An abun­ dance of fuel,a well-stocked cellar, and everything snug about house and barn, will render the approach of winter a season o! contentment. West Virginia, has been unfortunate in witnessing for several years past the almost total failure of the crops upon which her people depend very largely for prosperity, while they have suffered in common with those of other States from the long continued depression in business. Mr. Parnell, in a speech at Dublin, said he was confident that Ireland was on the brink of victory. He has been criticised heretofore because he failed to protest against outrages and violations of the public peace, but on this occasion he denounced outrages and said a continuation of th...
