Opinions are very much divided as to
the merits of the Australian ballot sys
tem , as tested by members of the Omaha
Typographical union , at tholr election
of otUcorn on Wednesday. This has
boon shown by interviews with a largo
uuAiborof members of the union. The
chief argument in favor of the method
is that there is an entire freedom from
the confusion and noise that are usually
features of election events. This is
wet by the argument that voting under
the system requires so much time that
it would bo inoperative at a general
election. The system requires that the
names of all candidates bo placed upon
ono ballot , leaving it for the votora to
Bploct the candidates for whom ho will
cast his vote , In the case of a iron oral
election the average vote would bo re
quired to wade through a list of names
that he could not possibly work pro
perly in the limited time allowed to
each yoto. The system , while favorable
lor elections in a society where the
number of voters are limited , would un
doubtedly prove inoperative at agenoral )
oloation. The result of the election ol
the Typographical union is us follows :
President , J. R. Lewis ; vice president.

four senators. As blft as all DuUota Is this
prospect Is suniclent to make each ot us
happy. Hut wo have another cau c for
congratulation In South Dakota. Thrcc-
qunrters of our voters are republicans.
There Is hardly a republican postmaster or n

Senator Edmunds said : "It is ono of the
most perfect constitutions in the United
States. " Mr. Springer has said virtually
the same thing. Wlso men framed .It at a
tlmo wncii all supposed it would never go
Into effect. So no oxtiuncous Influences
were brought to bear against an.y of Its pro-
Visions. The monopolist attorneys were
conspicuously absent. Hunco the cntlro fair

Is n possibility of It * becoHiinBtho foundation
on which a state is to bo built the enemies of
some of Its provisions are already shooting
their arrows ut it with the purpose of Induc
ing the people to defeat It , but the passage of
each day Increases the probability that It
will bo re-adopted.
At the monster convention hold hero last
week by the friends of constitutional prohi
bition , i egardless of all party lines , it was
unanimously voted to stand by the Sioux
Falls constitution. They represent a ma
jority of the voters In the stato. Last Tues
day Governor Mollctto made a speech In
Watertown , In which ho strongly urged all
to vote for the Sioux Falls constitution. This
will bo made the watchword of the republi
cans. Then there are very many democrats
who strongly favor the governor's plan. For
all of these reasons it appears to bo certain
that the old constitution of 1S85 will bo the
ono under which wo shall enter the union
There is a very decided belief that ou the
two separate propositions of minority repre
sentation and constitutional prohibition , the
former will bo lost among the "scatter
ing' ' nnd the latter will win with a whirlwind

Dakota. But their backers are not standing
hat in hand waiting for ofllco. They nro
"placing" corner lots where the most good
can bo done. They are reported as willing
to invest in newspapers till tlio close of the
campaign. In short , they will pledge half
of their possessions to win votes , and they
will mortgage the other half to aid in this
missionary work. Each town bolloves It
will be forever more undone if it loses in
this capital racebut in each case this is only
a flgmont of the imagination.
This will be a full year of politics and elec
tions in Dakota. Town elections in March ,
municipal in April , election of delegates to
the Sioux Falls convention iu May , connty
superintendent In June , state elections in
October , territorial election in November , If
wo fail to adopt u constitution in October.
After two months' rest will como an elec
tion of senators in January. Dakotans will
gladly endure oven this largo affliction of elec
tions for the sake of securing political inde
pendence. This is the goal to which all
hearts are yearning and for which all eyes
are looking. * *
Although it Is yet six months until the
election of congressmen , and a legislature
which will choose senators , the people have
auito clear Ideas whom they wish to huvo
represent them in Washington. For the two
representatives , their first choice is Mr.
Matthews , tbo present delegate and Mr.
Qlitord , ox-delcgato , IB their second. Judge
Moody , of the Black Hills , who was elected
senator in 1885 , will bo ono of the senators ,
and Mr. Pcttlgrew , of Sioux Falls , will bo
the other. Moody has long been a loader in
territorial affairs. Ho is able , brilliant , quick ,
a fine stump speaker and an excellent law
yer. Mr. Pettigrow was the delegate In.
1880-3 , nnd there has never been ono who ac
complished moro than ho did for Dakota.
This quartette will bo au honor to South Da
kota and to congress.

A Madman at Imrgot
Ho ib a well known citizen , and his
n6arest and dearest friends do not sus
pect his insanity. How do wo happen
to know about it ? Listen ; his appetite
is gone , ho is low-spirited , no don't '
sloop well , ho has night-sweats , ho is
unnoyod by a hacking cough. These
symptoms are the forerunners of con
sumption and death " , and yet ho neglects
them. Is it any" wonder that wo call
him a madman ? If you are his friend
toll him to got a bottle of Dr. Piorco's
Golden Medical Discovery without do-
lay. It will euro him if ho takes it in
time. It will not miraculously croalo
now lungs when the old ones are nearly
gone , but it will restore diseased ones
to a healthy condition. Toll him about
it , nnd warn him that in his case delay
means death ,
The OlilCHt Twlnn in the linked States
The oldest living twins in the United
Status , says the Philadelphia Record ,
were born in this century in Philadel
phia county. Their names are John
and Samuel Nice , and they boar such
resemblance to each other that it is al
most impossible to distinguish them
apart. Ono resides in Germantown and
the ether in Jonkintown. They were
born on May 11,1805. They both Imirned
cabinet-making , and in 1828 they opened
an undertaker's establishment at the
corner of Main street and Washington
avenue , Germantown , nnd remained
there until the close of the civil war.
They huvo long slnco retired from active
business pursuits ,
Both men have married twice , both
are widowers and each has the same
number of descendants. Within the
past few years they have become quite
doaf. They enjoy comparatively good
health , and are as active us men in the
prime of lifo. Neither has over used
tobacco in any forjn or tasted of liquor.
This , they claim , is the cause of their
long lifo. Besides being the oldest
twins they bollovo that they are the
oldest undertakers iu the country and
to have owned the oldest burial-estab
lishment in the United Statcb , it dating
back to 1700.

The followlnp true story , sixys n writer
In tho.London IllustnUod Kows , might
almost bo ranked with some ot JEsop's
fables , under the nnmo of "Tho Man ,
Lhe Lion , nnd the Bnboons. " It is re
lated by n creditable witness , Mr.
Charles Holland Lilllo , whowna travol-
Inp in South Africa. Tlio fact that
lions have boon observed , on ether oc
casions , to bo intimidated by baboons ,
is mentioned in standard works ot nat
ural history. Our correspondent writes :
'Wo were outspannod by the sprlnjr
of Mool-fontein ( Beautiful Water ) in
Bochuanaland , our business being that
of traders of wool , feathers and ivory.
Wo had come thirty miles through the
veldt a long pulf for oxen and wo ,
therefore , determined to rest the entire
day at this grateful little patch of ver
dure and water. ' Our camp and equip
ment consisted of two largo hooded
buck-wagons , with about thirty draught
oxen , thirteen Kaffirs ajid our two
solves that is , Nieland , the Dutch
trader , and myaolf.
"I wanted moro than nn hour to sun
down , when Niolnn'd turncdto mo nnd
said , 'I am going to walk ns far aa that
Icopjo ( hillock ) nnd see if the cattle are
3ii the ether side ; the 'boys' ought to bo
bringing them in by now ; ' and away ho
wont. It wns our practice , as it is the
general custom of traders and travelers ,
to have the cattle homo and tied up to
the dissol-boom of the wagons for the
night ; then , by lighting a couple of
fires and leaving the Oogs loose , ' wo
Efonorally considered ourselves secure
from tho' nocturnal intruders , though
we hoard them plainly enough and
often saw their starlike eyes peering at
us from the gloom.
"Tho 'kopje , ' as they call small hills
in Africa , was probably further away
than Nieland had imagined , for ho was
some little time in reaching it. Some
of the Kafllrs were squatting by me ,
where I stood by the lire cooking our
supper , and watchinrr Nioland ns ho
walked slowly across the heated , shim
"Arrived at the kopje ho ascended it
a little , looked on either side of him nnd
then made his way round to the ether
side of the hill. Ho "had accomplished
moro than half the distance and wns out
of sight of the cnmn , when ho took an-
otlTor survey. As the kopje was broken ,
uneven and rooky , bad for walking , his
eyes had been bent on the ground.
When ho raised them for a moro ex
tended view ho wns horrified to find
that ho was being watched by an immense -
monso lion a great tawny brute with a
black main and flashing oyos. The ani
mal was a little below him , standing on
the level ground.
"Nieland stood perfectly still , startled
into perfect immobility , fascinated by
the danger of his position. In those
few seconds which seemed to him like
hours , he was bitterly blaming himself
for having left his gun behind , and'
naturally his hand had gone to his bolt ,
hoping to find , at least , his revolver ,
but to his dismay ho was armed with
nothing bettor than a hunting knife.
"Tho lion did not advance , but stood
as if waiting. for n movement on the
man's part , and the man did the most
natural thing under the circumstances.
With his face to the fee , he slowly nnd
cautiously began to retreat up the hill
side. What ho hoped for ho was scarce
ly conscious of , except , perhaps , that
ho might climb some point inaccessible
to the four-footed boast , but it was al
most hopeless work owing to the nature
of the ground and his constrained po
"He had not made any great progress
when ho hoard a confused grunting
and jabbering away behind him. Half
turning his head ho glanced quickly
round and saw a troop of baboons.
Along with the man's movements the
lion advanced. Hero the man was be
tween two fires , the lion in front and
the baboons behind formidable crea
tures these , as ho know them to bo , pos
sessing enormous strength and having
the characters of morose nnd ungovern
"Tho pabboring increased , inter
spersed with shrill erics of rage ; and
presently Nieland was aware that the
baboons were leaving the heights above
and descending to where ho was. Up
to this moment he had stopped his slow
ascent , but now ho remained stationary
in a crouching position , and drew the
knife from his bolt.
"Tho baboons came , leaping and run
ning on all fours , down the slues of the
stony kopje , and soon they were round
Nieland in a kind of irregular circle.
There they fataid in knots of three and
four , nnd raised the most unearthly din
barking , Bcroaming , shouting and
boating their breasts such a tumult as
the man had never heard before.
"Tho lion had stopped ; ho had done
moro ; ho had retreated a little way ,
ana then , putting his nose close to the
ground , ho uttered , a sharp , short ,
angry roar. 'Thank heaven/ thought
Nioland , 'they will hear that at camp ,
and will remember that I am away I'
"Tho baboons gront , powerful ,
hairy follows now redoubled their hid
eous noises , jumping about their al
lotted stations in the greatest excite
ment. It really appeared as if , with
'bristling ' eyebrows and angry , distended
mouths , they were making the most
scornful allusions to the king of boasts
"Tho lion stood there , angry , baffled
and perplexed , lushing the ground with
his tail ; then ho begun to run , in quick
strides , backward and forward. Every
time ho put his head down the noise of
the babooons increased. When ho
htood tatlll. and throwing his head back ,
gnod at thorn , their exclamations died
away ; but they became , if possible ,
more alert and watchful than over.
"Tho baboons- Boomed to gather
closer together , still keeping Nioland
In the middle of the circle they had
formed around him. The lion retreated
again , and roared ; and some of the
foremost baboons descended , with re
doubled noises , to the lower ground ,
while others filled their places.
"Tlio lion backed still further away ,
till ho had reached a respectable dis
tance ; hero ho staid , and , looking
round , put hifi nose to the ground , and
sent forth a mighty roar that reverbe
rated along the echoing ground. After
thin , turning for the last tlmo , ho
troted off , to the heartfelt relief ot
Nioland , who was imprisoned now no
longer , for , as the mighty boast disap
peared , the babooiib broke ui > their pro
tective circle , run god themselves in
groups and extended line and com
menced digging for the roots and earthnuts -
nuts , an occupation that they had prob
ably been engaged upon before tlio
Dutchman appeared upon the scone.
"Nlcluud clambered round the hill-
Ido to the spot ho had tytfglnnlly loft ,
from which ho could ni $ nly see the
camp , but also that wo0voro ( already
coming in search of him. .
' "Tho oxen cnmo in naif nn hour
nf tor you started , ' said l | 'from the OD-
posito direction ; then 1 'heard what
Bounded like roaring. After that '
hero I paused , for I could ECO through
the sunburn on his skin , that ho was
ghastly white. Luckily,1 Amatonga ,
ono of the Kaffir boys , was carrying n
canteen newly filled ; so I gave Nioland
a long , refreshing drnugjit of wntor.
'God bo praised ! ' oxclanied , the Dutch
man , nnd pressed ray hand. Til toll
you later. ' ,
"Wo hurried back into camp , for the
short African twilight was fast deepen
ing into night. Round the cnmp-llro
that evening Nioland told mo the story
of his ndvonturo and his deliverance as
I have sot it down hero. After the ro-
cltal was overtho Knlllrs being warned ,
our guns were carefully loaded ami
ether precautions were taken. Wo two

'karosscs , ' by the blazing lire , discuss

An Opium Den In Paris.
Opium dons are common enough in
the east end of London ; but few estab
lishments of the kind exist in Paris ,
although some ' 'Bohemian" artists in
Montmartro tried lately to found a society -
cioty of "hashish" consumers , who were
really opium oatcrs. Jt has been re
served , however ( the London Daily Tel
egraph's correspondent says ) , for nn en
terprising Jnpaneso to "run" a fully ap
pointed opium den in Paris. Ho opened
his establishment in the roz-do-chaus-
sio or ground floor of J a block of build
ings in the Avenue tie lujGrandc-Ar-
mee , and the den _ wa beautifully doco-
oratcd with oriental 'carpets , tapestry ,
ottomans , and loungoil with little squat
doilies and idols presiding over all.
Hither came dozens of "the landlord's
countrymen nnd Chinese , of whom tlioro
is not an inconsiderable colony in Paris.
The almond-eyed orientals were thor
oughly satisfied and smoked and gifr-
glod every night until they were as
completely dazed as ono of M. Pasteur's
rabbits under the influence of the tre
panning operation. The landlord was
reaping a rich harvestiwhen in an evil
moment ho bothoughtamnsolf of adding1
to the attractions of HI a establishment
by employing therein a batch of
pipouso or brasserie .nymphs.
These occidental pipouses and
also "pipo-fillors , " were not , however -
over , so honest as their congeners in the
east , for no sooner did they find their
customers wrapped in the fantastic
dreams caused by the opium fumes than
they picked their pockets and annexed
their watches. Ono of the smokers ,
who had lost a largo sum of money In
this way , complained to the police , who
have since closed the don and arrested
th . landlord an'd his decoy "ducks. "
Danger of Hunting the Gorilla In the
Forest * orthe Dark Continent.
"Tho gorilla Is the prizo-flghtcr ot
Africa , " said Carl Stockolman , who
has personal knowledge of the Dark
Continent , to nn Indianapolis News re
porter. IIo hnd boon speaking ot a
leopard skin on exhibition in his win
dow , and had. boon tolling of the danger
encountered in fighting with the
original owner ot the skin.
' 'Contests with all wild animals palo
in comparison with that in which ono
must ongao in meeting the gorilla , '
h \ said. "Tho gorilla is found in only
a comparatively small portion of West
ern Africa. IIo lurks in the woods
along the coasts for several hundred
miles north of the mouth of the Congo.
I have never seen a gorilla in
the open country , nnd , by the way , I
think that the fact that ho stays in tlio
woods , nccounts for the fnct that ho is
almost a biped instead of a quadruped.
You see the gorilla in .passing through
the forests reaches ou with his long
arms , and , seizing the'uranchos of the
trees , rises on his hind legs and walks
on them supporting himself with his
hold on the branches. IIAbit has thus
almost m ml o an upright creature of him.
"Tho gorilla is as bravo as bravo can
bo. The male gorilla does all the fight
ing for the family. If you approach a
pnir of gorillas the female will run ,
screaming through the woods , or will
climb the highest tree , uttering all the
while cries not unlike a woman in great
fright. But the male gorilla will como
straight at you. Ho does not know
what fear is. Ho will fight any number
of men. "
"How do you fight them ? "
"With pistols. It is unsafe to trust
to a gun or to a poor weapon of any
kind. The gorilla is so fierce and pow
erful that you have but ono chance nt
him at the best. The woods where ho
is found is so thick that it is impossible
to sco him accurately at any distance.
If you fire at him us ho comes at you
down the tree a limb may turn the
course of the bullet. Before you can
fire u second time ho will bo upon you.
Ho drops from limb to limb , nnd cornos
nt a rapid swinging pace. The safest
way is to hold'yOur Uro until ho is. at
arm's length and then fire steadily into
him with a pistol.
"Tho gorilla is easily killed. An or
dinary pistol shot will have about the
sanio oitoot upon .him as it has upon a
man. The hunter's danger is in not
making the shot toll. Once I was pass
ing through the forest with a body
guard of natives. The natives nro fur
nished by the Dutch traders with a
miserable gan' the barrel of which is
made of gas pipe. The natives have
learned to bo suspicious of their puns ,
when they fire at anything they point
in the general direction , pull the trigger -
gor and Iling the gun at the object.
They throw the gun because they nro
afraid it will explode in their hands ,
as it very frequently does. AVoll , wo
'camo upon a gorilla. A native saw
him dropping from a tree coming at us.
Aiming at the descending form , ho
fired and missed. Ho had not turned
before the grim monster was upon him.
Standing and throwinghis arms around
the negro's neck , the gorilla seized his
throat in his man-liko jaws , and was
crushing the lifo out of him when wo
came up and fired a pistol ball into him
at closo" ran go. But the wounds in
flicted were mortal , nnd the native died
in great agony. "
"Aro the gorillas numerous in the
strip of country where they are found ? "
"They are scarce In making a trip
once I saw two In ono day , but that was
unusual. They are the fiercest and
bravest or animals. The male gorilla" ,
in going into battle , souijds n fearful
warning by beating its breast and giv
ing forth sounds that make the dense
forests resound. Ho is a dangerous an-
tagonibt , and you are all the time re
minded by his appearance that you are
contesting with a creature that has a
man's faculties and appearance , a gi
ant's strangthjindamonkoy's agility. "
