Home of Kittridge a Storm Center in Coming- FightInsurgents and Their Issues. From a Staff Correspondent. s* Sioux Falls, 8. D., Dec. 19.Minne- haha county and this citv, the home of Senator A. G. Kittreclgd, will be the stoini center of the coming state con flict. If the rest of the state is rathei equally dmclecl, as it seems likelv to "ho, the eighty three votes Minnehaha county will take into the convention will settle the case one way or the other. Both sides, naturallv, are claim ing Minnehaha and are determined to carry it, and the prospect indicates a desperate struggle. Senator Kittridge has generally heen able to handle the countv, but in the local contest last year the insurgents *-got the best of it. They thought thev controlled the delegation to the state convention,butwere outmaneuvered and the machine, getting a maioritv, csst a solid vote from Minnehaha under the umt rule. The insurgents are bound to Min next year, and they certainly pre sent a stroLg combination for the ma chine to overcome. Some of the ma hme leaders admit that they would ^lose if the caucuses were held today. Thov expect, tho, to be able to mend the damaged fences and carry the coun ty next May. Many "Sore" on Kittridge. Local issues and enmities account for most of the opposition to Kittridge here. The senator is a masterful sort of man, who has his opinion on every thing that comes along, and takes an active hand in nearly every local con troversy. He has trod on the toes of a good many people, and' while his friends are loyal, the anvil chorus i a large one. He has alienated former friends bv his course in handling pat ronage. Men who felt that they de served recognition for their party ser vices have been tiirned do^vn and alien ated. There is little said against his appointees. Thev are. as a rule, good business men and popular, but tho com plaint is that the men who got the plums have done nothing tn deserve them. Some of those turned down, too, No Opium in Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. ^_ There is not the least danger in giving Chamberlain's Cough Remedv to small children as it contains no opium or other harmful drug. It has an established reputation ot more than thirty years as the most successful medicine in use for colds, croup aud whooping cough. Tt always cures and is pleasant to take. Children like it.

For instance, in the contest for warden of the penitentiary a year ago, there were several candidates who worked hard and got indorsements-, and who inter viewed the senator repeatedlv to see how they stood. All were told that the matter was not settled and was open, but during this time a publishing house iu Sioux Falls got out a directory of state and county officers, and tinder the head of warden of the prison, it gave the name of Harry T. Parmley, a prom inent business man, but not very ac tive in politics, and not supposed to be seriously in the 'race. The other candidates got fresh assurances, it Is said, that no decision had been mkde,, but in due time Parmley was named by the governor. The local postoffice contest is not settled, tho Al H. Stifces has been in dorsed and seems most likelv to get the appointment. George Schlosser, who retires, has a good record, and under the new rule of the postmaster general is entitled to reappointment. He has some hopes of being retained, but is making no fight and will have no griev ance if the rule is evaded and the^ Other man named. There is no obiection to i Stites. Railroad Bow a Factor.

The Press, which is democratic, but the mouthpiece of the insurgents, is roasting Burnside, and this tends to alienate him from the insurgent cause, while the appointment of Burnside's son to a place in the post office is also significant. Ed Kennedy, the United States marshal who retires Jan. 13 in favor of Seth Bullock, is the main Kittridge lieuten ant in Minnehaha county. Al H. Stites, the new postmaster, has'not always been a machine man, but worked with the or ganization last year, and is now one of its mainstays. "C. E. Holmes, district agent of the Mutual Life, chairman f the county committee, and one of the most popular men in Sioux Falls, is a staunch Kittridge man, and P. J. Eogde, a well-known attorney and member of the legislature, is also a power with the organization. These men are the lead ers in the battle that will be fought next spring for Minnehaha county. Contrary to rumors, Richard F. Petti grew is not taking arry hand in the re publican scramble. His sympathies are known to be with the insurgents, and it is credibly stated that he occasionally gives them some good advice, but he knows better than to get into the fracas openly, and as fai* as the senatorship is concerned, he has no more love for Gamble than he has for Kittridge or Martin.

The commit tee threw the majority out, however, because residence and county were not written out, but were indicated by ditto marks. Members on the side of submis sion defied the others to prove that ditto marks were not a part of the lan guage, and so regarded in all legal mat ters and decisions of the courts. The insurgents will claim that the petition was regular and mandatory on the legis lature. They are attacking the caucus law as cumbersome and impractical, and only a makeshift. The caucus law has a provision for county option, by which a County convention can vote to con duet nominations under the direct pri mary at the next election. This option, if exercised at conventions. next year, cannot be made effective till 1908, so there can be no direct primaries next summer. The railroad issue will be pushed by the insuTgeMs. They have little com plaint to make of rates or of the rail road laws now on the statute books, which are almost as sweeping as those of Minnesotas Their complaint is that the laws are construed too liberally to ward the roads, and that in all political matters the advice of railroad officials is taken. It sounds rather farfetched, but insurgents openly claim that ap pointments are made subject to the con firmation of Harry Hunter, immigration agent of the Milwaukee, Whose head quarters are in Chicago, and of Alex C. Johnson of Winona, general agent of the North-Western. Colonel R. W. Stew art of Pierre, attorney for the North western, and Ben Hoover of Gettys burg, representative of the Milwaukee, are also given credit for being on the inside of politics. All these gentlemen take an interest in the affairs of South Dakota, but it is hard to tell how far their influence goes. They generally stav at Pierre during the legislative sessions to protect the railroad inter ests from adverse legislation. About the only railroad legislation now urged by the insurgents is the abolition of passes. Business men think that in other respects the laws are sufficient. They say that South Dakota does not need regulation of the roads so much as it needs more railroads. Yankton Solid for Gamble. In a brief visit to Yankton I found there was no foundation in the rumors of a fight on Gamble at his home. The city and county have had a factional warfare for some years, and it is not over by any means, but the leaders of both factions are on record for Gam ble's re-election. The insurgent faction in the county has been strong and has pushed the organization hard for con trol. Senator Gamble has taken no hand in the local fights, afnd in this re spect he has been fortunate. His friends CHRISTMAS PRESENTS Continued.

They are rather more pleased to support him because he is now forced to be with them in oppo sition to the state machine. The wounds of the old fight made when Gamble was first elected to congress have closed and Judge E. B. Smith, who wad his opponent then, is on the cireuit bench and takes no active hand. L. B. French, another rival, is a Gamble man. The senator's personal representatives are Joh Holman, his law partner, who as mem ber of the last house drew the caucu 3 i a a Robert C. McDowell, his secretary,a who is attending to busi ness in Yankton and will not join the senator in Washington till after the recess. Senator C. H. Dillon, a former partner of Gamble's, has led the oppo sition faction, and took a leading part last winter in the legislature, in favor of submitting the primary law. He has declared, however, for Gamble's re election. The counties round about Yankton have had strong insurgent leanings. Bon Homme, where "Jim" Elliott lives, has gone that way in spite of him, and with Elliott's' help will be about unanimous. Hutchinson is also counted upon, tho the machine depends on D. D. Wipf, the secretary of state, to hold it in line. Clay county, in which Yermillion is located, is torn up by the university fight, and iB pretty sure to stand with the insurgents. Convention Date Is Fixed. The state convention date is already set. The new caucus law sets the time for all conventions of all legal parties, and the state nomination conventions will be held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in June, which will be June 4. The state committee meeting called yesterday by Chairman Crane, to convene in Sioux Falls Jan. 4, will take up the question of procedure under the new law. Charles B. Cheney. FIRST LOAD OF FREIGHT Centerville Man Compares Rates Thirty* three Years Ago with Today. PIERRE. S. D.N. NOble of Centerville writes Professor Kerr that he holds a receipt for the first car of freight ever shipped into Dakota teiritoij. Noble came into the territory Oct. 26, 1872, on his way from Mendato, 111., to Centerville. He came on the Illinois Central and arrived at Sioux City when nothing but con struction trains were operating on the line from that point to Yankton. He wanted to send his car of freight as far as possible by rail before unloading it, and went to the offices of the new railroad company to arrange the matter. He was at first refused, but, persisting, was finally told that if the conductor of the construction train would agree to take his car out it might go. He hunted up the conductor, and. after treating the train crew to the part of a barrel of apples, consent was obtained. The /freight charged for the trip was fl5. Noble's wife accompanied him, and as there was no caboose attached to the train, she rode on the engine. The freight charges amounted to $120 to Sioux City, and from that place to Elk Point, the place wheie he unloaded, made the total $133. In his letter heremarks that the freight on a like shipment over the same lines at the pres ent time would be about $45._ The officers selected by the Maccabees lodge for the ensuing yeai are: Laura Ruble, lady commander Jennie E.

D.Information has been received here of the striking of a vein of lignite coal sit feet thick and twenty feet below the surface of the ground on a farm in Lyons town ship, near Sioux FalU.
