Church, the Watertown real estate mun is airanging lo stock a number of the Grant county farms with milc:i cows to supply the creameries with milk. One of the farms to be so stock ed is that known as the Beardsley place, from which the product wil! be sent to the Milbank creamery, and another is me of the Bai nes farius whero the pro Juct will be furnished to the Corona creamery or cheese factory. No one who attended the Huron con vention this week and witnessed the at tendance and enthusiasm at that meeting can lorr a mwment doubt that South Dakota will this year roil up the biggest republican majority ever given in the state provided no serious mistakes are made. Creamery lie pert. Below is the report of the business done by the Milbank creamery for the month of February. The price per hundred pounds of milk, 81 cents, is about the same as paid in Jefferson county, Wisconsin, as shown by the local correspondence of the Jefferson County Union. If we can do as well as they, on land worth about one-sixth as much it would seem that the relative profits here ought to be much greater. While its present state of cultivation our land is not quite so productive acre for acre, it it will be conceded by all who are ac quainted with both soils that two acres here can be worked with about the same labor that must be expended on one acre of that heavy stony clay. A hundred dollars worth of labor on a hundred dollars worth of land in Grant Co., will produce trom two to five or six times the amount of cow feed that the same investment will on the soil of the famous dairy region of southern Wis consin and our butter is enough better to more than compensate for the additional distance to market.

The picket lines ot the great army of republicans are being thrown out all over the country, for the campaign of 1890, and last Saturday the republicans of Grant county commenced their first forward movement, which is to result in wresting the government from the in competent democratic party whose vicious policy has been so fruitful of disaster to the prosperity of the country. The court room where the convention was held, had been very handsomely decorated with the national colors, a large crayon picture ot McKinley in the center over the judges desk, with the pictures of Lincoln and Grant on either hand, relieved by the red white and blue of the stars and stripes. The republi cans are this year awake to their duty and the interest and enthusiasm every where shown indicates that the) are on the march to a grand victory. With the exception ot Georgia and Troy every township in the county was represented at this convention, which was to voice the sentiments of the republicans of the county in the selection ol the next presi dent ot the United Stales. The convention was called to order by chairman E. D. Ely, who read the cal] and Hon. A. L. Patridge was unani mously chosen temporary chairman and F. W. Meehan, secretary.

The report was adopted, as was also that of the committee on permanent organization, which reported that the temporary organization be made per manent. The committee on resolutions present ed the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted, the name of Mc Kinley being greeted with enthusiastic applause: Resolved, by the Republicans of Grant County, in Convention assembled: First, That we reaffirm our unfaltering adherence to the principles and policy Ot the Republican party. Second, That we most emphatically favor sound money in the fullest sense of the term, and are unalterably opposed to any action that will tend to debase or depreciate our currency or lower its standard at home or abroad. Third, That we stand now as ever, for protective tariff, to the end that Ameri can industries may be lostered and en couraged, ample revenue raised for the expenses of the government without re sort to loans, and the prosperity of all the people promoted. Fourth, That we recognize in our dis tinguished countryman, hereina?"" named, the greatest living exponent ... these grand principles, and a candidate ^fotmncc. iu all respects worthy to bear our Hug to victory, and we therefore instruct the delegates chosen at this convention to use all honorable means to insure the selection of delegates from this stale to the national convention at St. Louis who will cordially and heartily labor to secure the nomination of Hon. Wil liam McKinley as the candidate of the Republican party for president of the United States. Fifth, That we indorse the candidacy of Hon. Carl G. Sherwood, of Clark as dele gate from this Judicial Circuit to the National Convention. The following resolution was present ed by J. 1). Smull in behalt of reserva tion settlers, and was unanimously adopted: Resolved. That the homestead policy of the goverment adopted by the Re publican party during the glorious administration of Abraham Lincoln has proved to be of inestimable value to wards the development of the whole country that the reversal of that policy was unwise and threaten:* to retard the progress of large portions of the country, We believe the government should again allow homeless sett'ers to secure homes upon the public domain under the gen eral homestead laws and that the extin guishment of an Indian title to a reser vation by purchase should be no bar to this beneficent- policy. The enactment of the Lacy free home bill" as a law will save the present or future settlers upon public lands in this stale over six mil lion dollars, which will otherwise he un justly collected, depriving many of their homes and creating an unsettled rather than a patriotic citizenship. In view of these tacts we, the representatives of the republicans of Graul County in conven tion assembled, request our delegates to the state convention at Huron to use their eilorts to have that honorable body instruct the delegates sent to St. Louis to the National Convention to endeavor to secure a plank iu the National Plat form, reaffirming the time-honoreu posi tion of tlie party oil the homestead laws. After some parliamentary skirmishing in regard to the best manner to take a ballot, it was finally decided that nomi nations be made, and it hut one nomina tion be made at time the election be by acclamation. The following names were then presented and elected to re present the county at the Huron conven tion, a ballot IteitiL' taken between S. R. Mini .1. A. reuniting in 24 for the former and 48 for the latter. Mr. Gold was afterwards elected without opposition. Following is the delegation: A. L. Patridge J. A. Williams F. W. Thorndike S. R. Gold G. W. Merry W. W. Downie H. G. C. Rose Peter Nelson N. I. Lowthian Frank Jones A. G. Somers S. S. Lock hart Freeman Hoxsie G. A. Wood. A motion was carried authorizing the delegates present at Huron convention to cast the full vote ot the county. A motion was also made that the dele gates be instructed not to vote for R. F. Pettigrew for delegate to the state con vention. Upon motion the county central com mittee was instructed to make the basis ot representation for county conventions upon the vote cast for the republican candidate for governor at the preceding election. Convention adjouined. Drilled grain should be sown from east to west, or better from south-ea&t to north-west. By so doing the hot south west winds can not so easily get down between the rows and dry out the ground.. Big Stone township comes to Ihe front. There was a big turnout to the republi can caucus last week, and there was a republican club organized and Chas. Bullard, Ernst Weideman and Otto Kuederling were elected as a standing committee. Big Stone township is iu lor McKinley and protection. Supt. Aldrich is still in correspondence with Supt. Crane concerning the division ot the Blooming Valley school district. Supt Crane writes March 23rd. "It is almost impossible to tell what the law does mean. I do not wish at this time to give an opinion in this matter, but desire to examine the matter more thoroughly, and if possible to find decisions ot supreme court in relation to it. As soon as I have investigated the question thoroughly 1 will write you again." Upon receipt of the official opin ion Supt. Aldrish will proceed accord ingly. Esther chapter, O.

Consolidated April 11, 1890 That fhe republican party of South Dakota is a party that will not submit to bossism, no matter how high in au thority the would-be boss may haye been placed, was clearly and unmis takably proclaimed last Wednesday afternoon by the state convention as sembled at Huron. An altrmpt had been made by some of the leading poli ticians to swing the state to Davis or Allison, or anywhere from McKinley, but ihe great mass of people were arous ed and determined that their voico should be heard and the men whom they should elect to St. Louis should be their servants and not their masters. The convention was the largest and most enthusiastic ever held in the state, and the fact that it was unanimously for McKinley and almost as unanimously for souHd money made it a harmonious one. The action of the convention was a severe rebuke to the position assumed by Senator Pettigrew on the money question, and shows that he has been misrepresenting the republican senti ment of the state iu his free silver votes and talk. IIis position on this question he was publicly compelled to renounce, and pledge himself to stand on the re publican national platform before the convention would allow him the privi lege of going to St. Louis. Even when he had done this and was tied hand and foot there was a strong sentiment in the convention to turn him down, and he was the only one of the delegates who was elected by acclamation to whom there was au opposing vote of "no." Again when the vote between VVilliums of Day and Jeweltof Aberdeen was taken the belief that Jewett was somewhat friendly to Pettigrew served to defeat him, though many of the delegates who voted for Williams believed that Brown county was entitled to this honor. The very bitter feeling ot the convention auainst Senator Pettigrew was much of it due to the fact that he had left his duties at Washington, where the people had placed him as Senator, to come to the state and dictate its politics aud de feat the will of the almost unanimous sentiment ol tho people ot the stale both in its choue for president and upon fi nancial issues. It is hoped that Senator Pettigrew lias learned a lesson that will last him a life time, and that he will not again attempt lo tiade the honor of be ing South Dakota's senator for the doubtful one of being its political "boss." The General ot the Army, the General commanding the I S. Corps of Engi neers, Vice Pres. Webb ot the New York Central, and John Jacob Astor, compos© The Cosmopolitan Magazine's Board of Judges to decide tke merits of the Horseless Carriages which will be enter ed iu the May trials, for which The Cos mopolitan olferd iu prizes. This committee is undoubtedly ihe mo6t dis tinguished that has ever consented to act upon the occasion of the trial of a new and useful invention. The intore«t which these gentlemen have shown in accepting places upon the Committee is indicative ot the importance of the sub ject, and that the contest itself will be watched with marked intereet on both sides of the Atlan'.ic.
