Egan Will lor Battling Homesteader! Visit Lemmon Sunday i Decision Sweepingly Puts Seal The Noted South Dakotan, Ora of Disapproval upon Wilful tor, and Leading Candidate for Trespass with Stock upon Judge C. C. Carpenter has just handed down his decision in the case of John H. Lux, Plaintiff vs. Robert M. Kennedy, upon plain tiff's demurrer, which case hinges upon the herd law. Originating in the taking up of two horses by the defendant, because the ani mals were devastating his grow ing crop, the case was brought step by step, the last action being a demurrer interposed by the plaintiff, as follows: 1. That the Court has no juris diction of the plaintiff under the provisions of sections 10, 11 and 12 of Chapter 244, Laws of 1907. 2. That said facts alleged, do not constitute a cause of action against the plaintiff under the provisions of sections 10, 11 and 12 Chapter 244, Laws of 1907, it appearing upon the face of said counterclaim that said trespass and damage was committed in South Dakota and in territory ly ing West of the Missouri river. The Court in his decision has this to say Counsel have submitted briefs upon the constitutionality of sec tions 10, 11 and 12 of Chapter 214, Laws of 1907. It is un necessary, however, to consider the constitutional question, as the case may be decided without reference thereto. The contention of plaintiff is that notwithstanding the trespass and damage, defendant cannot recover because of the provisions of section 10, 11 and 12, Chapter 211, Laws of 1907, known as the "herd law." Statutes providing that damage done by animals cannot be re covered unless the land has been inclosed with a fence of the size and material required by statute, do not give permission to the owner of stock to use his neigh bor's land as pasture. They are intended to condone trespasses of straying live stock they have no application to cases where they are driven upon unfenced land in order that they may feed there.

Fence laws do not authorize wanton and wilful trespass, nor do they afford immunity to those who in disregard of property rights, turn loose their stock under circumstances showing that they were intended to graze upon the lands of another. The character of the trespass is a question of fact to be ascer tained. It is ordered, that the demurrer be and the same hereby is over ruled. By the Court Clay Carpenter, Judge. The effect of this decision is that once for alL the homesteader may consider himself secure against the herds that are still al lowed to roam the open at randorr. The "legal" fence will still be required to secure damages in cases where an animal running away, against the owner's reason able precautions, and commits damages. But under this decision it will henceforth be a risky thing for any owner of stock to wil fully turn his animals loose, that they may damage the fields and property of others- Seed Speltz at Green's* the Senator's Chair, will de liver a Lecture Sunday Evening The frequent query: "la Egan coming to Lemmon?" or "When will Egan Come?" is set at rest Mr. Egan's advices to his many friends are to the effect that he will be at Lemmon Sunday, to deliver one of his noted lectures, "The Trial and Crucifixion of Jesus of Nazereth," at the Arm ory, Sunday evening. Mr Egan's lecture had at Mr first been announced for Sunda\ afternoon, but as many intend to go to Reeder in the afternoon to hear the oratorio "The Mes siah," arrangements were made to have the lecture delivered in the evening, tnus giving all an opportunity to hear and meet him. Egan will speak at Bison and other inland points Sunday, the Bison speech being schedul ed at 2:00 The western Dakotas are full of friends for the man who single handed and alone is waging the finest politi cal battle now before the people of the state, and it goes without saying that he will have the largest audience Lemmon has yet given any man with a mission Handel's Great Oratorio "The Messiah" at Reeder Quite a delegation of Lemmon ites, lovers of good music, will take No. 17 westbound on Sun day afternoon at 1:00 o'clock, to hear Hanel's great oratorio "The Messiah" sung by the Reeder Choral Society under direction of J. Hjort, and assisted by a capable artists from outside. To undertake a work as ambi tious as "The Messiah" might be deemed almost madness in any small community, such as western Dakotas call their own were it not for the fact that Reeder rejoices in having as one of its foremost citizens none other than Mr. Jacob Hjort, who formerly devoted his entire time to vocal culture, and singing as a professionist high in rank. Reasons of health de manded his removal to the west, but, to be sure, his enthusiasm and devotion for what is best in music, he braught with him. And hence the Reeder Choral Society, and the magnificent re sults of its efforts in good music.
