LIVI CITY WATERTOWN
IN SOUTH DAKOTA
Happenings of a Week Through
out the State.
POSSIBILITIES CF THE RIVER
Business Men of Pierre Enthu
siastic Over the Missouri.
The Missouri river and its possi
bilities was up for discussion again
a1 i'i'-rre in the meetings of the board
trade and the business men's meet
C. 13. Demand, who had been
in rorespondence with leaders of the
t!.j waterways movement in the
c.mmry, announced that he had se
ctir. a tentative promise from Gov
ernor Burke of North Dakota that he
vi•:iid be present at a meeting in
I': and that representatives of the
Mi -ouri river organizations at St.
I.o'iis and Kansas City had requested
ample notice of such a meeting that
tliey might be present.
I". C. Kindley, I.,. H. Clow and A. C.
Brink were selected r.s a committee
oti publicity and promotion and J.
Dulton, V. Peterson and F. A. Twigs
a committee on finance. These com
niittees at a later meeting decided
upon Wednesday and Thursday, March
30 and 31, as dates for the waterways
meeting. Business men of the state
will be invited to attend.
Another phase of the Missouri river
development was taken up when Mr.
Divine Robinson called attention to
its power possibilities in the vicinity
of Pierre. He allowed that at Little
Bend, a few miles up stream from the
capital city, tnere Is a fall of fifteen
feet, six inches, where the river makes
a circuit of about twenty miles an 1
bends back to a point 7,500 feet across
the "neck." At Big Bend, about the
same distance down stream, is a sim
ilar bend with a swing of nearly thirty
miles, doubling back to within 5,000
feet, with a fall of twenty-one feet,
These two points by cuts across
the narrow necks would develop ap
proximately 25,000 horsepower. A
committee was named to communi
cate with the South Dakota delegation
in congress to secure if possible a
government survey of the two points
and a plan for their development.
With the present development of
electrical power transmission, the pro
posed plants could be used for the de
velopment of electricity, and the cities
of Pierre and Port Pierre could be
supplied at a nominal cost with cheap
power for manufacturing purposes.

COAL RATES ORDERED CUT
Commission Acts on Appeal of Gov
ernor Vessey and Others.
Governor Vessey nd residents of
the western half of South Dakota have
won out before the state board of rail
road commissioners in their demand
for a reduction of coal rates to points
west of the Missouri river. The com
missioners have adopted a new and
reduced schedule of rates, officially
known as a "coal commodity carload
rate," applying on traffic west of the
Missouri river, and have ordered that
the new rate shall go into effect on
Feb. 15, next.
Among thone who appeared before
the board and arg- ^d for a reduction
In the old rate were Governor Vessey
and L. L. Schaaf, representing the
Pierre Commercial club.
Heretofore a charge of 35 cents per
ton has been made for freight going
west of the Missouri river at Pierre,
and 60 cents per ton for freight going
east across the river. The railroad
commission has ordered that in .future
a fixed rate of 25 cents per ton shall
be made, going both east and west.
It was decided that at a meeting of
the board to be held on Feb. 18 the
matter of long distance telephone
rates in the state should be taken up
for consideration. Complaints in ref
erence to the local telephone systems
at Groton, Northville and Wessington,
and a proposed advance in the rates
of the automatic telephone systems at
Huron and Aberdeen were referred to
F. C. Robinson, a member of the
board, and State Inspector of Tele
phones Ege of Centerville. They will
make a thorough Investigation.
AFRAID OF THE INDIANS
President Madriz Does Not Want
Them in Nicaragua.
It is said that because President
Madriz of Nicaragua feared that the
projected transplantation of 8,000
Sioux Indians from South Dakota to
Nicaragua was a ruse to give strength
to the insurgent army under General
Estrada the plans of Chief Little Bi
son of the Sioux tribe have received
at least a temporary setback.
Chief Little Bison, who went to Nic
aragua to prepare the way for the
going there of his brothers, arrived in
Boston on the steamer Esparta from
Port Limon, Costa Rica, accompanied
by Mrs. Little Bison, a white woman.
Little Bison said when he reached
Costa Rica President Madriz was sus
picious of his intentions apd appealed
to the Costa Rican government to pre
vent the Indians' entry into Nicaragua.
The chief then was submitted to con
He managed, however, to elude his
watchers at Gaupilo, about thirty
miles from the Nicaraguan border, and

weeks. He favored the coming of the
