A Member of tbr TlilrU tributet An cut Thinking the impressions of a looker- on in this saintly city might inten-st your readers, i will write a few. The ollicers of the senate were re- elected with the exception of serjreant- at-arms and assistant-sergeant-at-anns: for the last-meutioneil otiice A. Styve of Freebom eounty was a date for re-election. Fo'r several bal- lots he either led or tied his tors. but beaten on the hist ballot by two votes. Circumstances over which his friends had no control led to his defeat. Two years ajjo his present competitor vras defeated by him. Sec- retary Cutter and Assistant Secretary Hurt W. Day unanimously re- elected. On Thursday Lieut. Coy. Rice an- nounced the senate committees, plac- ing Senator Halvorsen on the judici- ary, retrenchment and reform, roads and bridges, printing, and engrossment committees, making him chairman of the latter. A resolution pertaining to the appointment of clerks of the com- mittees was offered, but notice of de- bate being given. It went over to the next session. As the s-enate immedi- ately adjourned until next week, those looking for clerkships are thus placed on the "ragged etlxe" of uncertainty for a time. This adjournment was posed by Senator Halvorsen. Some seventee'n bills have been introduced in the senate and several in the house. On Friday the house adjourned to Tuesday." 1 he -fact that the members from Freeborn county were obliged to be absent this week did not give those seeking positions here the prestige their presence would liave lent, I have heard several of the friends of Speaker Graves commend Mr. Morgan for his action after the speakership matter was decided against him. The Alliance has been in session at the capitol the last three days, time occupied by an earnest dis- cussion of many questions of great importance, in election of othcers. Many comical episodes occurred in the debate, which at times so hot and exciting that one might think the whole thing would end in a division or a dissolution of the alliance. On thr election of otlicers the excitement and feeling outrivalled anything ever seen in any convention in Freebom county. Donnelly, tiibbs. Mam-It, Ilixon. Major Hotchkiss and many others participat- ed. It was more of u circus and tree light than I ever saw before, but all was peace and harmony at the close of the discussions and election of ollicers. I f a constant "moving of the waters" is a sign of life, the Alliance is in a liealthy condition. I cannot even gness who will be chosen U. S. senator, but Donnelly will have'inore votes than I expected be- fore 1 came to St. Paul. A few sleighs and cutters were on the streets this morning. On comin? out of the capitol yesterday a stranger front down east remarked to me. -that he wondered when in Min- nesota, would commence working their This was before the little snow fell. T. A Won! for Dr. Von Iterr. Editor Standard: AVill you allow me space in your pa- per for'these few lines: I feel it my duty and only right and proper to let the'public know of a remarkable cure performed by Dr. J. Von JSerg of Albert Lea on my ten-year old 'son. He was taken ill with inng fever and dropsy of the chest last MaV. AVe had a doctor from I'mirie txventy- tivr times, but without obtaining re- lief. AVe sent for Dr. Von IJerg after the had been sick nearly four months- After he had operated four times my son was entirely cured, and is now as strong and well as ever. Dr. Von llerg drew from him over a gallon of water. I cannot express my great gratitude to the doctor for what he lui> done for us. 1 write this without th doctor's knowledge or consent, X. X. Hlooming I'rairie O_ .Ian. s, A Printer Should JIakr from the Kirht The Wabasha Democrat says; "A young lady explained to a printer last evening the dilTerence between print- ing and publishing, and at the conclu- sion of her remarks by way of illustra- tion she said: "Yon may print a kiss on mv cher k, but you must not publish The.
