MILBANK. w. S. 1). W. l)o«Mi'-, Editor and IVM'r. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY, Fill DAY. MAY I Tiie postmasters »H over the Unitou States have received instructions from the department to accuraie carelul account of the number of pieces and weight of ad mnil -ont from then offices during this week. If Mr. Battey knew how heartily sick the people of Milbank are of hearing hit old church grievances, he wouid h»v pity them. There is no doubt he wai- a v e y "weak sisier," but Wouldn't it he a better plan to open up these old sore before the proper church committee and have them dressed there, than to ho con tinually exposing them to the gkld\ world. At the meeting of the state republican central committee held at Huron yester day, it was decided to call the convention at Mitchell, August 27th. The basis of representation was placed at one delegate for each 100 votes, or major fraction thereof, cast for Uoverno. Mel'etto ai the last election, and fotiiach newly or ganized county, one delegate. Ibis vrili give Grant county a representation of nine. One of the laws enacted by the South Dakota legislature, and which goes inu effect June 8th, reads as follows: That every person who sells, givee away or furnishes in any manner tobacco in any form,whether as smoking or chew ing tobaccos, cigars or cigarettes, or snuff or furnishes any substitute for to bacco, ol' which tobacco is an ingredient, to any child under sixteen years of aire, is punishable by a tine not to exceed five hundred dollars or imprisonment in the county jail not to exceed one year, or both such fine and i n prison me tit. The folly which the republicans of Grant county have committed in former years of running alter strange gods 'should be apparent to all, as it is now liearing fruit. Out of the liberal repre sentation allowed the count.es, Grant couniy will be entitled to but nine dele gates, while Brown will have 3#, Day 14 and Clark and Codington each 15. If the republicans of Grant county desire have their proper representation in the councils of the party that is to govern this great state, they will see to it that hereafter they stand manfully by then colors and not be led oil by every tink ling bell that promises so much and gives nothing for their votes. The citv of Boston has inaugurated a "reform" in the running of saloons, by prohibiting bars and compelling the proprietors to furnish chairs and tables for their customers. Thi is a dangerous infraction of personal liberty. The right to drink standing up is as sacred as the right to drink sittinj: down,and the cultured Bostonians should follow the example of their ancestors win refused to drink British taxed tea, and rise in fiieir might and refuse to drink whiskey ur.til thev have gained their second independence. In due course *bf lime the Boston city council will order the removal of the tables, then the chair* and other fixtures, and at last the sa loon itself will have ^to go. Dakota commenced chopping at the root,but the Bostonians believe ir. trimming offr the branches before they fell the upas tree. Bro. Battey saysjhe hasn't hired us to lie altout tha North American Western Publishing Conglomerated Company and be hasn't. He couldn't hire us to do it if he was to smother us with green backs, load us down with gold and pre sent us with a copper bottomed residence in Quality Corner?. We wouldn't know how to tell a lie if we had to, and this i the first time in our long newspaper career that we have had lo go ou'gide our own paper to get an endorsement of our truth-telling character. VVe teal verj grateful to our neighbor for this unsolicit ed testimonial, and we wish we could say the same of him. If he remain* under our tutilage any length of time »t shall undoubtedly be able t# do so, aud we shall also teach him—if hiB head isn' too thick i n 1 our patience hold3 out—how to carry on a newspaper controversy aud b« a gentleman at the same time. The bombastic proposition published in the Independent last week, entitled "a settlement in sight," gives away the whole farce which Battey & Gregg have been play inn, when they say they are willing to divide up and call it square. The burglar who gets caught while trav traveling off with his booty could with less presumption turn and say, "well, now, this is a bad mess let's compromise by your taking half of your own goods and I'll take the other half!" The sub scription list of the Advance newspaper either belongs to Messrs. Battey A, Gregg or to Ihe publisher of this paper. If it belongs lo the totmer we wouldn't take half of it nor tho whole of it at a gift, as simply wish to have nothing to do with these men, but if it belongs to us. we do want it, and neither half nor any portion of it is offered for sale to the fJorthwestern Publishing company or *nyone else for the purpose of "af!ect f" settlement. p»R' May Int. w i* labor's s.r a la over this country and lvirope labor made it a holiday i n* Federation of Labor two year* niio that thi would be lived upon for the commence ment of the demand for shorter hours ol labor, mid the Chicago ••-ni«»rs were placed in the van of Hie inent, with the labor army hack of tln'tn. To secure this a strike wan ordered, and alter a few days strutfu'e. the tirst battle was won and the Chicago carpenter- ol,\dned their demand and went to work under thoeirht hour system. Thin trike and its result but forecasts the adoption of theeiirht-hour system throughout the country, and will he followed up by the same demands for shorter hours of labor by the building trade and other uni-ms, until the system li is become universal. It il!listrate« the powtr winded by labor when united in a just cause and assert ing its rights in a peaceable and lawtul manner.
