The late meeting of the International
Sunday School Convention at Boston
and the reports presented to that body
indicate something of the importance
of the Sunday School as an instrument
of power among the people. The re
ports show that there are 132,639 Sunday
schools in the United States, with 1,390,
508 teachers and 10,890,082 scholars.
The world's third Sunday school eon
vention will be held in or near London
England, during the first week in July
1897.
A party ot tlie friends and neighbors
of Thomas Fit:h, to the number of near
ly forty, on Tuesday evening after the
darkness of night had fallen upon the
city, made a descent upon the Fitch
homestead, and look possession of the
house, after first securing the person of
the redoubtable Thomas and disarming
him. Refreshments were served and
the party seeing the success of their
move felt so good over it that they even
permitted Thomas to partake with them,
but he says that the next time he has a
birthday gathering he wants to do the
inviting himself, as he does not believe
in mob rule, or the taking advantage of
a defenseless man who has committed
no crime except that of getting older
each year. It was midnight belore the
company released him ana gave him a
chance to meditate on the
of human li'e.
The republican state convention re
nominated by acclamation John L.
Lockhait of this county as commissioner
of school and publig lands. Such an en
dorsement is highly gratifying to both
Mr. Lockhart and his Grant county
friends and is evidence that his duties
us commissioner of school and public
lands have been most satisfactorily per
formed. The knowledge of this fact,
and the general confidence Jack inspires
as an honest man and a good fellow,
gave linn the support of the entire con
vention, and during the canvass previous
to the nomination there has been hardly
a name mentioned in opposition. Jack
is to be congratulated on the universal
esteem in which he is held.
A visit to Aberdeen this week would
convince any of our pessimistic friends
that the republican party is still doing
business at the old ttand. The conven
tion has never been surpassed by any
meeting of republicans previously held
in this state either in attendance or in
the interest and enthusiasm which pre
vadesthis body of representatives of the
party. While the contest for the various
offices to be filled on the state ticket is
as usual intense, this is not the only or
most important subject before the con
vention, for the republicans cf South
Dakota are engaged in purging them
selves of a dangerous element, an ele
ment that while wearing the cloak of
republicanism has sought to knife the
principles of the party, and destroy
its usefulnes. The spirit of toe con
vention shows that this element in the
party has been rendered powerless by
an uprising of the plain common people,
md the would-be bosses have had their
power for evil taken from them. The
little virus that still remains in the party
from this source is impotent for evil,
and will slough off under proper treat
ment. This element was talking loudly
of bolting if the convention adopted a
republican platform, but it will be a
matter of indifference to the party what
these camp-followers of Pettigrewism
do. An open enemy is at all times pre
ferable to a traitorous triend.
The Fourth at Itevillo.
The4th of July was celebrated at Re
villo this year in that good old 177G
style. In the lorenoon was the street
parado wherein about 45 young ladies
represented the states of the Union
Then came the patriotio services. The
band furnished some splendid music,
and the choir rendered patriotic songs
throughout the exercises. After a few
remarks by Rev. Thompson, Hon. W. O.
Storlie introduced Geo. S. Rix, the
orator of the occasion. His speech
thrilled with patriotism and was highly
appreciated.
In the afternoon the customary sports
took place and a grand ball given for the
benefit of the band, was well attended.
There was a general good time and
everybody enjoyed the celebration
There were about 2,000 people present.
Hit? Stone City Celvbratea.
Milbank mado no attempt to celebrate
independence day, and our citizens quite
generally betook themselves to neighbor
ing towns last Saturday to celebrate the
national holiday. The "doings" at Big
Stone attracted the larger number and
a goodly delegation from the county
seat enjoyed the day with their friends
in the town at the foot of the lake. The
weather proved to be the ideal fourth
of July weather, being cool and pleasant
during the entire day. A large crowd
was in attendance and the celebration
whioh was the first one Big Stone has
attempted in many years, was most
successfully carried out. A parade of
floats representing the various business
interests of the town was followed by
literary exercises at Whipple's park, at
which Hon. J. M. Lawson delivered an
interesting oration, in honor of the day
In the afternoon Dr. Rose's zouaves gave
a drill, a game ot base ball between
Yellowbank and a Big Stone nine was
played and some horse races and other
amusements provided, with fire work
in tne evening. Altogether the Big
