Tlie structure was built at a cost of 112.000 and $13,000, which cost was paid one-half by Lyman county and the other half Jointly by Mellette county, the C., M. & St. P. railway and the Murdo Commercial club. The White river, although not a large stream, has always been tieacherous in times of high water, as the water often rises several feet in a few minutes, making it dangerous to cross. This bridge will make the crossing certain and safe at all times of the year and regardless of the stage of water. School lands Leased Under a New System. Pierre.—The annual leasing of sur plus state school endowment agricul tural and grazing lands, under the ntw 1H11 law, occurred on March 21, on the basis of a value appraised on each 40 arres put up for leasing. Under the old law the lands were rented at an average for a county, which had to be low, such as 15 cents per acre for a five-year term, because otherwise the poorer lands could not be leased. Un der the new plan, with each 40 sepa rately appraised, the limits run from 10 cents to $1 per acre, for which reason Commissioner Brlnker expects a largely increased revenue from this source Meadow and pasture leases must be for three years, and agricul tural lands for five-year periods, re spectively, and longer or shorter terms will not be approved. County audi tors, who have this work in charge, are instructed to offer separate sec tions for grazing, and a maximum of 320 acres for agricultural purposes for the first bids, if these are not tak en as a whole, then any legal subdivi sion thereof may be offered, the land to go to the highest bidder care be ing taken to prevent renting of zigzag shaped tracts, and subdivisions with water privileges which will prevent the leasing of the rest. It is a penal ofTense for one renting land for pas ture to breat it up for cultivation. that when the proper time came South Dakota would be one of the leading members of the Northwest Develop ment league. Wheu we organized in Helena, South Dakota was represented by but one man. and we knew that was enough. The meeting of state builders shows the interest which can be aroused in South Dakota when a proposition has merit. The convention is gratifying, wonderful, In fact. It Is larger even than the first meeting of the Development league held in Hel ena, when seven states and Alaska were represented. "Out of this builders' convention wa believe a permanent state organiza tion will grow, not eliminating or r© placing any organizations now in ex istence. but simply bringing the other organizations together in a South Da kota state development association for the purpose of devoting a certain amount of their tine and energy to state building. These organizations would Juclude your state association of commercial clubs, your real estate dealers association, the bankers' as sociation, the grange, manufacturers and other organizations which feel. they should have a part in the devel opment of South I kota and make an efTort with the ofher organizations' to secure state legislation which will encourage people to live on and work' the land. "Then this organization for the d» velopment of South Dakota will keep! up the state's membership in the Northwest Development league and Join in all its enter] rises, which would Include parti. ipati n in the annual' products exposition in the traveling exhibits going out this year, in the permanent exhibit to be maintained in St. Paul and later In Chicago.

Sheriff C. L. Bruner said* "Although everything looks peaces ful now there is an undercurrent of vi cious feeling against the police and I expect an attack on the militia. My deputies report that a number of des perate characters in Davenport, Mo line and Rock Island are carrying around the word that they will "run the militia into the Mississippi river. This feeling, in my opinion, will get stronger as the day goes on." The first night's rioting continued practically unchecked for three hours.
