Hardly a day passes but we ore asked
"will we have that new railroad this
year?'* In our opinion nothing will be
done. If a good crop is harvested in
South Dakota and another spring the
prospects are as encouraging as they
have been the past, there undoubtedly
will bo a strong pull made to build the
Egan, Brookings and Miibank road. The
Sioux City and Northern are unable to
take tb© matter in charge on account ot
the stringency of the money market. It
is simply a question of finance with
them. Its officials are enthusiastic over
the project and would like to make it
a part ot Ihelr «p!em. Can Brookings
afford to wait, is th© question. Then
again steps might be taken and really
should be taken io secure the right of
way over the surreyed line of the Egan,
Brookings A Milbndk road in order that,
it the Sionr City A Northern does not
see fit to take the matter in charge, the
company may be able to float the neces
sary bonds and complete the road them
selves. We believe this can be done.—
Brookings Hegiater.
Anent the effort of farmers to hold
their grain for higher prices, and not
rush it Into the market, or store it in the
elevators, a Korth Dakota farmer of ex
perience eay«: "The man who owns a

for ten years to oome. I know that
there are othe* reasons beside lack of
store rooms which oompels the farmer
to sell his grain as soon as threshed—
the chattel mortgage crowd perhaps—
but the faot remains that many sell who
are not ohlig«si t\ and if that class would
hold, as a general rule, it would have a
tendency to help their less fortunate
neighbors, as wHl as themselves, to bet
