Yesterday Deadwood closed down
tight on gambling and began clos

night. Time was and that not long
ago, when Deadwood was the wllcst
open town In the states but that

the late home of the sport and the
bad man, seems to be on the verge
of becoming as quiet as a puritan
village In New England.
The senate yesterday voted to
raise the President's salary to $100,

of the house of representatives $15,
000 each, the chief Justice of the
supreme court of the United States
$15,000 "and the associate Justices
114,500 each. Fair minded people
will not object to these Increases as
present salaries are manifestly too
small for the dignity of the Beveral
