The Language of the President's Thanksgiving Proclamation Taken as a Test. St. Paul Dispatch: There is a note in the president's Thanksgiving pro clamation that is almost a wail of de spair of the republic. Nowhere is a man so confronted with evidence of the gross selfishness of men which subor dinates, the general good to individual greed, which easily takes the grosser form of downright corruption, as is the man who occupies the presidential chair. Small wonder that the president, bringing to his office high ideals of duty and of government and finding at least one department rampant with dishon esty, with its lines running out among the citizenry, puts into his proclama tion a prayer "that all hearts may be aroused to war steadfastly for good and against all the forces of evil, public and private." While human nature would be prone to evil under any form of government the environment is made more favor able when government departs from its proper function of securing for all equal rights and privileges and vouchsafes to some special privileges for which the others must pay. It is inevitable that greed is stimulated to get into the priv ilege class and it is inevitable that men become habituated to the idea that gov ernment's chief end is to enrich those who can get its aid. The official see ing his government using its powers to advantage some at general cost, is strongly tempted by that knowledge to use his measure of governmental po wer to his personal advantage. In a statement which the president is said to have made, in commenting upon the hypocritical attack upon him by Senator Gorman and which has the hall mark of his individuality, he speaks of classes that "are fighting for special privileges." Therein lies the danger of failure of which he speaks in his pro clamation of Thanksgiving, and the consequences of which to humanity he deplores. When every citizen can feel that his government lays no heavy hand upon him that another's load may be lightened that he has an equal chance with every other man on his merits and abilities, neither especially helped nor hurt by his government when, as the president said of the members of the •New York chamber of commerce, ev ery man "scorns to ask from the gov ernment whether state or nation, any thing but a fair field and no favor," then, and only then, will this past ex periment in self-government have a fair chance for trial. And then, only can it •tlcceed'. SALE OF SHORTHORNS. Tuesday, Nov. io, '03, forty Scotch, Scotch-topped and Bates Shorthorns and many head other standard bred cattle at the farm of Thos. H.

Of course it is their busi ness to be image breakers they spend their lives in tearing down each other's fine fabrics, and never are they so fun ny. to themselves, or to the onlooker, as when they are detailing their experi ences with some justice of the peace, who is more noted for common sense than common law. But the climax was capped in Towner the other day, when the learned occupant of the bench, not so long away from the bar, that he has forgotten how it feels, gave a hearty lesson to the local bar as to the only way of getting the better of the justice. "Just take a motion, have it over ruled, and put on your hat and go home." The vision of the justicc left lament ing, like Lord Ullin's daughter and her poor old father, was too much for the risibles of the local men, present, past and future justices.

The owner of the land conveyed the same to a railroad corporation for a right of way upon the express condi tion contained in the deed that if the grantee failed to erect and maintain a depot at a point named in the deed, the land should revert to the original own-J er. The depot was erected but was sub sequently abandoned. It is held in an action to recover possession: (1) that the above provision constituted a con dition subsequent and not a covenant (2) that the condition not being re strictive as to the erection and mainte nance of depots at other points is not void as against public policy (3) that upon the failure of the grantee to main tain the depot, the title and right of possession reverted (4) that on the facts of the case tfie plaintiffs are not estopped from asserting their right of possession, by an action in the nature of an ejectment, either as against the defendant or the public. When the execution of a judgment of ejection against a railroad corporation will operate harshly and seriously af fect public interests, a court of equity has power in its discretion to suspend its execution for a period of time suf ficient to enable it to prosecute con demnation proceedings. The action of the district court in stayine execution for a period of six months for that pur pose, is approved. Appeal from a judgment of the dis-'i trict court of Richland County Hon. W. S.

In the Country Stock Can Oo Free Prom Dcc. 1 to April 1. The approach of the winter months in which stock is allowed to run at large brings up the question of the liability of the owner for the damage and injury committed by his cattle, and stockmen who are especially interested in the matter are making many iti quiries regarding the changes made in the law by the legislature. The last legislature made no change whatever In this law, and the act passed by the pre ceding legislature still stands. This is the l^w of 1901, and the supreme court of the state has not as yet interpreted iC However, the 1901 law is construe^ generally by attorneys to be identical with the law of 1899, excepting.the 1899 law allows stock to run at lar^e from November 1 until April' 1, while the 1901 law reads "from December 1 to April 1." In a decision handed down,. Jan., 19, 1903, in the case of Ely vsj Rosholt, an action based, on the 1899 law. the su preme court says: "The destruction jf respondent's property, complained of in this case, was accomplished in the month of February, 1901, (which was before the 1901 law took effect), when horses were permitted to run at large. The damage was not effected through any willful act of the appellant. It is clearly the purpose of the law to re quire the owner or person in charge or possession of horses, mules, cattle, goats, sheep and like animals, to restrain them from running at large excepting during the winter months, between Nov. 1 and April 1, when the annual crops have ben gathered- and when, under ordinary conditions as they here exist, emblements and accretions of the soil have ben housed, marketed or stalked within incloures sufficient to turn stock, and that during these winter months the advantages to the stock owners of being permitted to let their stock run at large Overbalances the disadvantages to a minor part of the community in being required to pro tect haystacks against ranging horses, mules, cattle and sheep, As to this class of legislation other states have beetv controlled by the same legislation, v:i*., the requirements of local conditions. It is equally 'clear that if live stock is permitted to run at large during any portion of the year, an action is not maintainable by land owners for in jury to their personal property thereon by ranging stock at such times when the ordinary precautions which common prudence would dictate have not been taken to protect such property from de struction.

The en croachment of such animals upon an other's land during these months is not such a trespass as will sustain an action for damages. The proviso in section 6153 cannot be effective, and sec tion 1549 cannot beoperative, and ani fnals permitted to run at large during the winter months, if hay and grain can be left exposed in the open without guard or protection, to attract animals and create litigation. The owner of an nual crops must take notice of the' law, and adopt reasonable precautions to guard from destruction such perishable -property while stock is at large. 'The general law imposes on the land owner no obligation to fence, but when land is left uninclosed the owner- takes the risk of trespass thereon by the animals of others running at large, and can maintain no action for such trespass.'" i 1 3 4 v i k e V i ..
