President Cleveland in his message to
congress commenting on Ihe report ot
tho Secretary of the Interior says:
"Our public lands originally amounting
to 1,840,000,000 acres havo been soie
duced that only about (300,000.000 acr-s
still remain in government control ex
cluding Alaska. The balance, by far
the most valuable portion, has been
given away to settlers, to new states,
and to railroads or sold at a comparative
ly nominal sum I agree with the
secretary that the remainder of on
lands should be more carefully dealt
with and their alienation guarded by
better economy and greater prudence."'
From this the president evidently en
dorses in toto the action of Hoke Smith
in making the unfavoriible reports on
the free home bills that were before
congress during the last session. The
opposition ol the president probably
will manifest itself in the form of a veto
should any of the bills be passed this
session. However Grover Cleveland
and his Democratic friends will retire
to private hie on March 4th and Wm.
McKinley will take the reins ot govern
ment—then the settlers cn .public lands
throughout tho United States can look
tor that just treatment which the Re
publican pacjty has always given them.
We are pleased to note that the citi
zens of Big Stone townslop, headed by
Messrs. E. Wideman and Henry Bartz,
are showing an interest in the work ol
the coming session of the legislature
there are many things that we have al
ways believed could be done by our state
law makers that would benefit the well
fare ol the people of the state, and we
believe thai- the people should express
to their representatives their ideas on
the more important subjects and hold
them to strict account tor their work.
We hold that the reason that there has
been so much slipshod legislation in
this state is because the people have
alter electing their legislators lost sight
of them and paid little attention to
their doings at Pierre. Ho.v tnanv
voters in the county can be found who
can tell the position ot our members on
any important question in the last ses
sion of the legislature? Prohahlv not

various literary societies in dilferent
parts of the county set aside a half hour
each evening for a resume of the work
of the legislature this winter. Wo
think the people chose (he representa
tives wisely at the election and they
are. good, true men. Let tho people
keep posted on th^ir doings this winter
and then they will know how to vote at
a future time and not be a prey to any
