During the past season there was
Erected a brick coliit-hocse ; three
Wick business blocks) and over 300
wooden buildings, involving an expen
diture of ever $1,500,000. There is now
5n process of erection the Park Hotel, a
bricd structure 100x120, four stories
high, and everything inditatesj that
there will be a great increase in build1
Sng during the year 183i, and there
will bo an active demand for building
material aud .mechanics in all branches
The first industry established in
Pierre was brick making.or which there
was manufactured last season over, 1,
"009,000 of superior quality, and ar
xaugements have now been completed
to manufacture more than 3jO0O,O(j0 the

"cast pieces for buildings, breaking
plows lor tne larmers, ane. uc repair
work on implements and steam-boats,
Vould do a very profitable business,
A Manufacturing Business,
fcan only be established at ,Pierre, ow
ing to the low freight rates obtained,
'competition between river and railroad
transportation, the abundance of wood,
which ia now selling at 4 per cord,
and the immense quantity of coal and
Mother raw material in the adjacent res
ervation west of the river.
A Jobbing Trade
has already been developed by Pierre
merchants with the Blaok Hills and
the country up and down the river, and
with a lower rate of freight than can
be obtained at Watertown or Huron, or
any other point in South Central Da
"kota. and being the only railroad point
on ue tiuvuuuij i ; w..ii....
poon to be opened, i'.erre is aesunea to
become a great jobbing center.
ACTIVITY IN HEAL ESTATE
began last year and more cales wrfc
inade than in the previous two years
"of the city's growth, and there hasboeu
a healthrul,gradua.l advance in the price
of city prcpertj, and every one has
'made money by operating in reul s
late. Theindicatiorrs point to an early
spring's business and an advance in
Opportunities for Business.
Pierre is au excellent city to engage
in any kind of mercantile pursuits,
"wholesale or retail, because its rates of
freight are low; it is the .center of a
fertile farming country and the suppty
point fnumerods cities aud villages
located on the banks of the Missouri.
This is a good point to .engage in
manufacturing business of any kind,
;and liberal aid wiliheghen to any
manufacturing industry. There is a
.good-opening for the manufacture of
any .article .used in building, for flour
5nills, and for beer manufacturing.
There are opportanities to inveet in

Why Blaln Was Not Noin
inated Eight Years Ago.
Damning Proof op His Dishon
esty as Speaker.
Harrisburg; June 15. Chas.
H. Berger was leaning back in a
comfortable chair iii his private
club, in this city, discussing the
political situation, and surprised
every one by indicating that he
is not inclined to-vote for Blaine.
Mr. Berger is a lawyer of this
city. His father was the Post
master, for many years, the Pub
lic Printer and editor and pub
lisher of the Harrisburg Evening
Telegraph, the central party or-
crah bf the State. Dvincr a few
years ago, his son succee!d to
the ownership of the paper and
in 1876. was its editor in chief.
Eveiybody wanted an expla
nation. "It is commonly believed,"
said Mr. Berger, "that Blaine was
defeated for the nomination in
1S76 because he was obnoxious
"to the Cameron ring. There is
nothing turthefc from the truth,
and the only c'blor for the state
ment lies in the fact that Senator
Cameron was opposed to him.
His defeat was accomplished by
a disclosure made by William M.
Kemble,who was a delegate from
the fourth district, Philadelphia;
and had ho reference direct or
indirect to the relations between
Senator Cameron aud Mr. Blaine.
WHY PENNSYLVANIA VOTED F06.
"After the sixth ballot had
been completed,' continued Mr.
Berger, "it became evident that
the issue would be decided tin
the next. The Pennsylvania del
egates had been Voting for John
F. Hartranft in obedience lo th'e
resolutions of tho State Conven
tion. In order that the State
might makj itself lelton the suc
ceeding ballot, the delegation
withdrew For consultation. While
they we're engaged there the late
Morton McMcMicheal and Gdn
eral Bingham addressed them
selves earnebtly to the delegates
in advocacy of voting for Blaine.
At the conclusion of Mr. Mc
Micheal's remarks it was evident
a deep impression had been made
Juf t-as J lKTvQtgM&n? boutto .be
taken, Mr. Kemble arose. He
asked the delegates lo pause in.
the matter, and gave his opinion
that tho nomination of Blaine
wohld bring defeat to the party.
He referred to the damaging Bto
ries that w'ould be told, and to
the doubtful record Mr. Blaine
had made during his public life.
He drew from his pocket two
cancelled checks and continued'.
l,I never liad ahy legitimate bus
iness tiausactions with Blaine.
The only relations we have ever
had are represented by these two
checks. They are signed by me;
made payable to his order, and
indorsed by him and returned to
me through the ordinary chan
nels of such things.
FIVE THOUSAND FOR A RULING.
"When Mr. Blaine was speaker
of the HoUsS of Congress I was
interested in some ponding legis
lation. I asked his assistance in
the way of favorable ru'ing. He
agreed to rule as I asked for $5,
000. I paid him the money with
this check (exhibiting the $5,000
check.) Subsequently Blaine
came to me and demanned $2,
500 morej and r was obliged to
yield, and made the second pay
ment with this check (exhibiting
the 62,500 check) Now, said
Mr. Kemble, I defy any man to
saj that I ever had any other
busihess transaction with Blaine,
and I defy any man to dispute
the genuineness of this endorse
ment ih Blaine's handwriting.
If he is n-miriated by this con
vention I will give these' facts Id
the public and defeat is certain
to follow. I have no objections
to buying a man, But do complain
that he wdilldn't stay bought and
required a second payment.
"The efft;ct of this speech was
electrical j" continued Mr. Berg
ner. "When Keinble sat down
he hajjded the cancelled checks
aroiind among the delegates and
they were examined carefully
and critically. I had them in my
hand arid am satisfied that they
are genuine. Immediately after
the vote was taken and the dele
gation decided to cast its vote for
Hayes. That vote decided tho
issue against Blaine.'5
Mr. Berger's friends assert that
he will vote for Butler.
While the balloting in the
Chicago Convention of 1SS0 was
in progress, Gen. Simon Cameron
alluding to the same matter, said
to a neighbor that it was evident
that the people were for Blaine,
but owing to the evidence against
him, it would be fatal to nomi
Dnngcr Signal for Blaine.

made, the Tirno'3 did not take a
backward step, but declared :
Ono word as to the position Df
tho Times It will riot support Mr
Rljiino for tlia Prosid encv. It will
advise ho man to vote for him,
and its reasons for this course are
perfectly well understood by every
body that has ever read it. With
out the mention of riarnta the
course of the Times was foreshadow
ed in its issue of May 26th, when
it replied to a question of a cor
respondent in these words :
If tho nominee Of tho Chisago
Republican Convention is a man
worthy to be President of tho Un

will give him a hearty aud vigor

Times abhors-and has counselled
it nartv to shun, we shall !watch
with great interest the efforts of
those responsible for such a nom
ination to elect their candidate,
hut we can givo them no help.
The interest the Times will take
in this canvass is that of a friend
and physician. It is not with cyn
ical indifferonce, but with unspeak
able sadness that it sees the Rep
ublican pafty perversely set it3
face towards error and its feet in
vicious paths, for it has done some
service to the party. But with pa

The War Department has iri

This is a matter that Will

Little Florence C. was beseig

her grandmother, who lived some
miles distant.' To get rid of her
importuning he said : "It costs

"Neither do $10 grandmas grow

THE BARGASISQ OPEfc.
"So open was the bargaining
that it was not deemed indolicate
to speak of it in a meeting of the
Arthur delegates on Thursday af
t'srnoon. The jcbairman of the
meeting, Dr. J.-J. Mott, of North
Carlina-, thought it no hiore than
right to his delegation td state
that one of the Blaino men in his
delegation was a white man, and
that, thorefore, it was ndt probable
that he was being bribed. This
non sequitur was greetod with ap
plause, but why it is difficult to
tell. Cogressman Smalls also touch
ed upon it in his very enthusiastic
Arthur speech. He earnestly im
plored his. colored friends to stand
from beginning lo end for the hon
or of their race aud to disprove tho
charge that their votes werb pur
chased. Very severe expressions
were indulged in toward a supposed
Blains agent from Washington on
tho evening before and tho morn
ing after the nomination by Post
riiaster Taft, of Charleston. In fact
it is doubtful if anything about the
canvass was more thoroughly
kno.wn and believed than that votes
were bought for Blaine from the
Arthur delegations from tho South."
The late Peter Cooper once
said: "In all towns where a
newspaper is published, every
man should advertise even if
nothing more than a card tblliiig
his name and business he is en
gaged in. It doesn't only pay
the advertiser, but lets the peo
ple at a distance know that
tho town you reside in has a pros
perous class of business men. As
the seed is sown, 60 the fruit rec
ompenses. Never pull ddtvh the
sign while you expect td do busi
ness, for it often indicates that
your grip, commercially is bro
ken. The -judicious advertiser
will receive in return, ten dollars
for every one invested in the
columns of a loc'r.l paper."
