Gable of the North-west era railroad, who knows just how to make an excursion into the Blaok Hills one of the most enjoyable trips on re cord, was at Sionx Falls whooping it up for excursions OD the North-Western. Major Gable has a host of friends among the pencil workers, and is al ways a welcome guest at their meet' ings. The LEADER acknowledges a frater nal visit from the following named editors and members'of the Press Asso ciation on their way home from Sionx Falls: J. S. Headley, Menno Herald G. W. Kelley, Woonsocket News J. C. Palmer, White Lake Wave J. D. Reeves, Groton Independent, William Healey late of the Miller Gazette, and now an active member of the Publish er's Insurance company. Editor Reeves served as state auditor for four years, retiring Jan. 1. 1903. They were a nice bunch of moulders, young, active, handsome and genial. Bro. Reeves, of course, conceded without dispute, is the handsomest editor in the state from a man's standard of beanty, while J. Tomlinson Jr., of the Argus Leader carries off the bonquet when ladies are on the jury. The LEADER was pleased to meet this editorial delegation. Harry Hunter, who looks after the interests of the Milwaukee road in North and South Dakota, was at Sionx Falls during the meeting of the editor ial association, and one of the busiest men in that city. Every newspaper man in the state is a friend of Mr. Hunter, and they have reason to be, as none have sought a little extra mileage in vain when he was asked to aid them. Mr. Hunter is looking carefully after the interests of the company and no man is better qualified for that work because of his wide acquaintance and general knowledge of the cattle and crop conditions and other commercial interests. He is a man of wonderful vigor and perseverance never at rest, always working and planing for the success of the great corporation he re presents. Assistant passenger agent Young, was on hand. He is a genial young gentleman and is fast learning the conditions that will make him one of the best posted and popular passen germen it the employ of the company. The Milwaukee is at peace with all the state and doing everything to help pro mote the welfare of all the people who are tributary to its numerous lines in North and South Dakota. Mr. Hunter and Mr. Young returned to Chicago Friday. Just in Time.

Trondhjem, Norway, Jan. 23.— Aalesund was practically destroyed by tire to-day, bnt so far as ascertainable there was no loss of life. The church, schoolhonse, shops and three-quarters of the town have been barned and the latest report received said the remain' ing buildings were on fire Later it became known thai the de struction of Aalesnnd was complete. The damage is estimated at 84,000,' 000. The entire population is home less. Physicians and medical stores which are greatly needed have been sent from here and Bergen. ANew Machine. Col. Linn, the versatile editor of the CANTON LEADER, asks whether Craw ford can make a better machine than the one which has carried the repnbli can party to victory for several years.

Yes, Brother, it certainly would be newer, bnt new machines do not always work smooth and easy, and are liable to get cranky and go broke New ma chines of a political make up, are safe things to let alone.

Marsten of Johnstown, Pa., has been visiting at the home of S. Alness out in the country for some time. Last week he received word to return to that city to resume his work with the Cam bria Steel Co. He departed first of the week. Rural route mail carriers are receiv ing many evidences of appreciation from patrons on their routes. It's a dinner here and a sack of oats there and something else oo the route that helps the poorly paid mail carriers to feel encouraged. Uncle Sam is usually the most liberal man to work for in the world, but he certainly has placed the pay for rural route carriers far below a just compensation for the service ren dered. A rural mail carrier has a hard time of it during the winter months. Howard W. Baker formerly of Can ton, but now a prominent real estate dealer at Bonestell, South Dakota, where he has joined forces with the state bank of Bonesteel over in the land of promise, and will conduct a locating agency next spring when the famous Rosebud reservation is thrown open to settlement. Mr. Baker and the bank officers are in fine shape to locate set tler, as Mr. and Mrs. Baker spent all of last summer on the reservation, plating, classifying and surveying the land. Mr. Baker intended to open an office himself early in the spring as he knows the reservation land ''like a book," bat it seems that the bank offi cials learned ot Mr Baker's plans, and they formed a general locating agency, which will be able to render unlimit ed service to all seeking a quarter sec tion over in that country.

Earling, S D., Jan. 20, 1904. EDITOR LEADER:—In as much as promise to send a letter for the LEADER I ought to make some effort to redeem the obligation. Like going into debt, it is easy enough to make a promise bnt When it comes to selecting the material to make up a letter for publi cation, and then forming it into lang nage such as to make it interesting reading, it becomes a different propos ition altogether. However, as far as subject matter goes, I shall not cast about for anything out of the ordinary, for of such there is none, and would therefore be nothing but fiction and as for style, I shall let that take care of itself, for an attempt at anything out of the natural would only appear that much more awkward, with the em' phasis on "more." If any one then, after starting to read this, should be disgusted, why simply turn over to the more spicy columns of local news, or else partake of some of the vim and vigor of the editorials By the way. in speaking of spicy locals, it would in this connection be showing a lack of appreciation on my part not to make mention of an item concerning myself in a recent issue It would have been very nice indeed to have been in a posi tion to say what was there attributed to me, but am sorry to admit that your thoughts and mine were not along the same line for I was thinking of transaction with the clerk of courts out here, whereby I should only obtain title to a quarter section of land instead of procuring for myself a well you know what I mean now. You see, along certain lines of thot, it is hard for old and bearded bachelors like my self to express themselves but if they could only, in words and action, ex press a huudreth part of all they think, there would surely be no such a thing in this world as old bachelors nor would there be so many old maids But then, there are so many mysteries in nature that are hard to understand and much more hard to overcome. So much for the first chapter, but what shall it be next?. Oh yes! there were so many that wished me a pleasant journey, that it would be well perhaps to relate how their wishes were real ized. But then, a journey of a couple of hundred miles, mostly by rail, across these Dakota prairies is hardly worth mentioning either but (another "but") what is a person to write about? Well, the day I left Canton was one among few of those days that come bnt once a year, namely, the day on which trains in all directions are crowded with strenuosity, as it is personified in the college student on his way home to celebrate the Christmas holidays. Of conne, I could not reckon myself among that class, neither was I. in a sense, going home and then again, in a sense. I was: so you see I have the advantage of some by having two homes. The train on which I was to take passage was three hours late, which they blamed to the generosity of considerate and kind hearted people in sending so mau Zmas gifts. So I kept still without •jnarmnr, lest there should be packai^on board for me, some present to be delivered by Santa Clause at my lonely shanty out on the plains (you see I haven't. that nice mansion erected yet, that I dreamed of when a little boy.) After a rather tedious ride over a long ago familiar road, we pulled into Chamberlain in the darkest of night, and straight way I made for the preappointed hotel, where I met my brother Thorsten just looking at the register to see my name. He had just came in after a forty-five mile drive with team and wagon that day. So writing our autographs in brotherly fashion, we immediately struok out for a nearby restaurant for I declared myself to be hungry, and he said he might eat a little. Neither could we have been able to conceal our cadaverous looks, for our host brought as a most heavy supper but by the time we were through—well the china was left to be sure After that we went out to do the town, for Thorsten was to leave on the morning train and I wanted to be in preparation to get loaded for an early start, in order to reach a social gathering to which he said I had an invitation. The next day he managed to get off on |the train all right, but I with my contemplated early start, became ready to pull out of the village of Oacoma, five miles away, just as they Were beginning their Christmas festivities in the evening. Would have made a further delay to take them in, had it not been such a pleasant evening, and the fact that I needed to make use of the moonlight to take me up what is known as American creek, a distance of eight miles over rough and dangerous roads. So the next three hours finds a lonely wagon rolling along—rolling? Yes part of the time but most of the time it was slid ing, for up and down the steep and sidling pitches the hind wheels would come swinging arqnnd to the lead and drag the front end with them Could tell about how in one place I slid down aside hill until finally stopped by a barbwire fence, how I got out again, and afterwards continued to get into places nearly as difficult but will cat it short by saying that I got up to ihe level prairie without anything damaged or broken, like another rig that I caught up with, that was lying by the side of the road with a broken wheel. About midDight it bogan to storm, so afjer another to hours drive I pulled in at a road house and rested uhiil daylight, when I again resumed my journey through a blinding snow storm. Made only ten miles however before noon and then had Christmas dinner with a French family. The afternoon turned out cold but clear, and with only a few miles left I started out for an early ar rival home. The snow was so deep however, and packed so hard by the wind that my horses played out with in two miles of home, and was again obliged to pull in at,the ho-pital ranch of Otto Brigel. Instead of going to the party I went wijh them to a Christ mas tree in the church, four miles away, where they had an excellent pro gram in both Norwegian and English. The tree was a beautiful cedar, cut from the banks of the Missouri and decorated to the limit of human skill. Presents were not as numerous nor as costly as back in the older settle ments, but just as evident were the cheers and laughter, intermingled by the frequent outbursts of joy and happiness. At the close of the exercises a barrel of apples and a pail of candy were distributed among the crowd. Now how much better did you do down there? New Years eve we had the choice between a masquerade ball and a pri vate dance, and though both promised to b& good, we (do you notice the change irom "I" to "we?") decided in favor of the latter. The majority, of course, went to the masquerade, but even at our gathering there were three unmarried girls and five married girls, the right proportion of boys, both married and single, to have a real lly good time. Might give something discripiive of the country, its resources and possibili ties, but for my own interests. I do not know as I ought' to, for I am afraid that if everybody knew of the suap we have out here, there would be such an influx of immigration and such a com petion for lands that resulting prices wonld lessen the means of those al ready here to acquire extensive tracts of this rich and most productive of soils.. The weather so far this winter has been excellent, and could not have been better had we had the making of it our selves. As a consequence sheep, cattle, horses and people alike are doing well —Well with a big W. With this I think I had better close, for I have now used paper enough, saying nothing about the postage re quired to carry it through to earn a 3 months subscription free of charge, provided I shall not be charged up for the use of undue amount of space. In that case I shall be willing to call it square. Very Truly Yours, ENGBBRET HOLTER. It's a Clear Case Against Craw ford. 1 Doland Times-Record: It looks in consistent for the Crawford boomers to be making so inach fnss about the machine, as the state organization is termed, while they are at work trying to build up a stronger and more power ful organization. Instead of forming republican clubs to further the interests of the party they organize Crawford clubs to try to boost that gentleman into the gubernatorial chair. This is clearly a case of machine, started solely in the interest of one man. Let's go a little farther Mr. Record. If it would be proper to organize Crawford clubs, why wouldn't' it be proper to organize Snow clubs, Berg clubs, Schamber clubs and clubs for everybody seeking a nomination for state or county office? If Mr. Craw ford attempts to carry out such a selfish policy he will find bitter opposition everywhere, because the club system means local fights aad bitter personal contests and party discord and endless strife. If Mr. Crawford wants a republican nomination, he will have to take his chance with thp other candidates in the regular way, or suffer defeat because of his unrepublican and selfish demands under a new machine system of pro cedure. If the people of the state want Mr. Crawford for governor, he will get the nomination, if thtey do not want him he will not get it. Lincoln county has several solid re publicans who have greater claims on the office of governor than has Mr. Crawford, but no friend of theirs would think of pushing their claims with clubs. Mr Crawford's club system is an evidence of weakness and selfishness and personal bossism the like of which no politician has ever tried in this state before. It is the old Tammany Hall system, but the people of this stats will have none of it.
