THE YOU NO QIANT, DAKOTA.
Some of the democratic leaders seem
to have heard from the people, Mr.
.Springer, who has distinguished himself
for years by using the influence of his
position as chairman of the house com
mittee ou territories to keep Dakota out
of the union, is now reported as saying
that the bill admitted Washington. Mon
tana, Dakota ane New Mexico will do
passed as soon us possible, but he still
insists upon taking in Dakota as one
state, and intimates that the desire of the
senate to see the territory divided may
In fact, the injustice of the exclusion
of Dakota has become so glaring that not
even the democratic leaders can persist
in it any longer. The latest report of
the governor, just issued, showed that
the total of lands ewly tiled ou nnd
purchased by immigrants for settlement
for the year ending on the yOth of JJune
last closely approximates 2,500,000 acres,
or 3,900, square miles twice the area of
Delaware. That is the rate at which this
young giant is adding to its stature year
by year, and still it is denied representa
tion. It may be worth while to go back
a little and trace ita astonishing growth.
The census of 18(50 showed a population
of less than 5,000. Ten years later it
was 14,181. The period of its develop
ment had not yet come. Iiut in 1880 the
population was shown to be 135,177, or
an addition of 850 per cent to the popu
lation under the previous census. That
tukeu in 1885 showed a population of
:n5,010, a gain of more than 200 per cent
in five years. Since that time there has
been no ofKcial enumeration, but esti
mates as to population are made by the
commissioner of immigration, being
based upon the public land entries re
ported by the ten United States land
otlicers within the territory. On this
basis the population was estimated in
1880 to be 500,000; in 1887; 508,477; and
this year, 010,82:1. Adding to these In
dians, government employes and other
inhabitants of the numerous Indian and
military reservations, which occupy one
liftli of the entire territory, and the total
number of inhabitants approaches closely
to 700,000. But without these classes
the population is sufficient to entitle
them to four seats in the house of representatives.
In every department of enterprise the
development of the Territory continues
at so rapid a i ate that the figures grow
old before they can be made public.
During the last year 710 miles of com
pleted track were added to its railway
system, making th-j total milage 4,207
Only thirteen states in the Union have a
larger railway mileage. But it is in the
agricultural development of the Terri
tory that the most astonishing results are
saen. In 1800 less th iu 1,000 bushels of
wheat were raised there, and in 1870 the
crop had mounted only to 170,002 bush
els, but in 18S0 it has increased to 2,8:10,
289 bushels, and in 18S5 to 38,100,413
bushels. As to the crop of 1S37 there is
a difference of opinion. The statistician
of the national department of aericul
ture estimates 54O(3,O0O bushels, while
the teriitory statistician claims 02,553,
199 Either estimate gives Dakota a
much larger production of wheat than
any state of tha Union. Something like
the same development is seen in the corn
crop, which has increased in two years
from 7,800,593 bushels in 18S5 to 24,511,
720 bushels in 1887 a larger crop than
that of Minnesota or Michigan. New
A Desperate f Inilnal In the Hands
of a Desperate Mob.
Canon City, Col., Dec. 4. At 5 o'clock
this morning twenty armed men succeed
ed in affecting an entrance to the jail,
uverpowered the sheriff and tore down
the steel cage in which Wetherill was
confined. The prisoner broke up his bed
and with a portion of the frame knocked
several of the mob down. Threh hots
were fired by members of the party and
Witherill fell to the floor with a shatter
ed shoulder. 1I was immediately car
ried, without resistance, a short distance
from the jail and strung up to a telegraph
pole. The lody was left hanging until
The "Q " Dynamiters
Geneva. III., Dec.5 The trial of the
Chicago Burlington, & Quincy dynamiters
began here today, Judge Wilson presiding
defendants' counsel did not arrive from
Chicago until 11 o'clock, and when the
case was called they moved to strike out
either of twenty s'x counts which charge
conspiracy or the two alleging that the
defendants contributed money for the
purchase of dynamite with which to de
stroy the property of the railroad com
pany. This was promptly overruled, and
the selection of jury began, and when
the court adjournrd for the day three had
been agreed upon.
The great Panama canal, connecting
thotwo great oceans, will be completed.
So says an American engineer who has
looked oyer the work. The United
States must control this great highway
and prevent any European government
from possessing it. The prevailing belief
that the canal would never be finished
has been dissipated and the national Im
portance of preventing France or Eng
land from controlling it becomes ap
parent. A republican administration
assures the nation of a successful solution
of the problem. Express.

The Siamese apo is said to be in great
request among r.ianioso merchants
as ti cashier in their counting houses.
Vast quantities of boso coin obtain
circulation in SSiam, aid the- faculty of
discrimination between good money
and bad would appear to be possuhsed
by those gifted monkeys in such an x
tinordinary degree of development
that no human being, however care
fully trained, can cornioto witli them.
The cashier apo meditatively puts into
his mouth each coin pifscnU-d to him
in business payments, and twits it with
grave deli'ocration. His method of
