DegnorV. . A. Wit- Klginan and C. C. ( low to represent ( ho club In the matter. Mr. Sturgeon's plan was formally broached at thu morning mooting of tlio commercial chili. It mot with tlio apparent approval of tlio directors present and Secretary C. C. Row will enter Into corroHpondenco with cltloH where something of the same plan has been worked out. In appearing before tlio Commercial club dlrcctora Mr. Stnrgeon inndo this ( report : Something like a month ago my opinion was asked aw to what I thought of Inaugurating a'"tnulo day" for Nor folk , a special day for farmers and In fact for anyone having anything to noli or anyone In the market to pur chase. After giving this matter consider able ntndy and attention , In connec tion with the opinions expressed by farmers , I concluded to bring the mat ter before the Trade Promoters asso ciation and the Commercial club , with the Idea of establishing such a day. I llnd that the farmers are unani mously In favor of such a move , as the following expressions would Indi cate. . ) . H. Host , living west of town , says : "Tho plan Is certainly a good one and 1 would like to sen It put Into prac tice. It would help everybody. " Peter llnssy , living northwest of ( own , says : "A capital Idea ; have Keen just such a plan In Wisconsin. Am loud In praise for something of the kind In Norfolk. At ono tlmo about llfteen years ago thought of Inaugu rating just such a scheme. " Win. Doorlng. living west of town , says : " 1 think It a very good Idea ; have seen It carried on In aiaynorvlllo , Wisconsin , where 1 used to live , under the name of "Exchange day. " Frank Dnese , living west of town , says : " 1 think the plan could be worked up alright ; would llko to sco such a day in Norfolk. " ai. U. Cox , living east of ( own , says : "The Idea ii > certainly a good one and I think H would help farmers to dis pose of a great many things they have to sell and would be a great advantage to people wanting to buy. " Burr Taft , county commissioner , says : "If the plan Is managed right It would no doubt bo a benelH , and could be made profitable for every body , as well as convenient. " Dr. A. U. Tashjeau says : "I think the plan a good one ; would like to see It In operation. " I am heartily In favor of this move ment , and think it advisable for the Commercial club or the Trndo Promot ers' association to take the matter up nnd adopt ways and means for estab lishing such n day. However , I llnd In talking with ono of our well known auctioneers , Mr. Joseph Trulock , that the ono great obstacle Is the license the city charges for a public sale , it costing as much to sell ono horse as It would twenty , and I for ono nm In favor of going be fore the city council and making an effort to have the ordinance governing license fees for public sales abolished. I cannot see any reason why a man who pays an auctioneer for selling his property should be required to pay for the privilege of doing It. Naper Tourney. Bonesteel , S. D. , Aug. 2S.

Tim nn. nouncement from West Point , Neb. , that County Attorney aicLaughlln of that city had decided to mnke n close nnd personal Investigation of the lynching , caused considerable of a sen sation In Bancroft. The action of the county attorney is said to be due to the position taken by Gov. Sheldon , who before leaving for the west bitterly criticised the mob for smirching the fair nnme of the stnte. After making an investigation the county attorney will doubtless call for a special session of the grand jury , at which the evidence will bo submitted and If it Is of sufficient strength in dictments will be returned.

The body has been shipped to the mother in Denver. HIGGINS1 MOTHER HEARS NEWS Comforted by Fact that Cause of Much of Her Grief Was Gone. Denver , Colo. , Aug. 28.
