Aberdeen American: More than five
hundred rails were broken on th'e
Milwaukee line between Aberdeen and
Mlibank by a flat wheel on the diner
of tke west bound Olympian which ar
rived here at 5:30 Wednesday morn
ing held up traffic on the division all
day Thursday and nearly all night At
"9 o'clock Thursday evening an east
bound train which left Aberdeen -v
hout 3 o'clock in the afternoon had
not. yet left Groton, having been held
while rails were being replaced to the
next station. It was reported Thurs
day night that all trains were being
run on a ten mile an hour schedule.
The flat wheel, while Hta$.b«g^tl of
by most .readMis, is by no means un
famill&r to .railroad mer. It^ usuauy
is caused by too tight setting of
brakes, causing the wheel to dra^,
sometimes for miles over the rails.
This grinds the surface of the whcieT
where It comes in' contact With tiio
rail and wears itijowri'so that a fliit
portion sometimes three or four inches
in length is'made before the difficul
ty is discovered.
When a wheel becomes badly flat
toned the edge of the fattened por
tion is very likely to damage anil
even break the rail passes over,

missioners, expects to be severely crit
icized by the radical anti-railroad el
ement. But his appeal is for the con
sideration of the more conservative
residents of the state, with a view to
improving relations between the peo
ple and the railroads so they can
work together for the upbuilding of
the state, instead of antagonizing each
ether, as has been the case, the past
few years.
"South Dakota," he says, "has mora

the past fifteen years. Can you name
a single suit won by the state that
has been fought through the court of

could get an honest expression from

I feel certain they would say: "Let

4hat every concession, every reduc
tion in freight or passenger rates in
South Dakota, and there have been
many of them, have been gained by
one or two methods. First by diplo
macy on the part of the state board
of railroad commissioners, and sec
ond, because of the desire of the rail
roads to keep out of the court and to
gain the good will of the people.
In conclusion Dr. Smith makes an
earnest plea for the promotion of bet
ter feeling between the people of the
state in general and the railroads
having lines in South Dakota which
needs railroads for its future develop
more railroads for its future develop,
ment and that harmonious action will
result in the more speedy develop
ment of the newer portions of the
state.

For more than an hour he kept the
men standing there with the guns
pointed at them while the police were
trying for a chance to get the hand
cuffs on him. They were at last suc
cessful. While he was taking a drink
of liquor the policemen closed in on
him and he was in their "power.
The man was drunk and no doubt
insane while making the rash state
ments. He was lodged in the city
jail and placed in chains. It was a
state warrant that was issued for his
arrest. During the hour that he kept,
{ha boys in the room he kept up a
flow of language to the effect that he
was going to kill all the police force
and as several heard him utter these
words he no doubt will face a seri
