The recent sugar scandal has brought about talk of putting in automatic scales in New York. Those scales must be a wonderful contrivance. Editor Knight, at Wendte, threw a mallet (one of the work ing, as well as fighting tools of the profession) at a drunk and made him see several constellations. Knight and stars -what? passed thedayof usefulness in the capac ity of a public official. He has served his time, and is no more wanted. Whether he knows it or not is of no consequence. Mr. Can- imported North Center St. non has served his country well, and in times past has done his share of good, and there is no doubt but that after he has gone to his reward he will be rated as one of the great men who has assisted in the shap ing and maintaining for the good of our country. At present ho is held in ill repute, and so will be as long as he is an office i older. His political career is at an end. The com.nissioners proceedings, now being published in the official pajers, are rather interesting as showing the enormous cost of the last term of circuit court. There are several things th:it are respon sible for the great cost, and some of them will without a doubt prove a foundation for campaign talk next year. The cost to some who were compiled to attend does not figure in the report of the proceed in its, for it came out of their pockets. Of course, the criminal calendar was extremely large, but that doesn't sa.v everything. Packing Plants for the State South Dakota is making great strides in many ways, and new in dustries are constantly coming to the fore. One point on which we are making a decided showing is in the production of hogs. The state has not had, until last spring, a pork packing establish ment within its borders. At that time a sma 1 plant, with a capacity of but 150 hogs daily, commenced operations at Sioux Falls, and its offerings have been such that it Select Your Christmas Gifts from the following list Manicure Sets Jewel Caskets Festoon Necks Trinket Boxes Shaving Sets Desk Sets Novelty Fobs MESH BAGS FOUNTAIN PENS SELF FILLING AND SELF CLEANING Tobacco Jarsv Ash Trays and Smoker Sets.

Sageser Jeweler and Optician Ladies' Furs and Muffs Fur Caps, Fur Collars will increase its capacity to 1000 hogs a day in the spring. Another plant, we learn, will probably oien at Sioux Falls in the spring. Watertown is to have a similar institution, of moderate capacity, in the spring, and an other plant is being erected at Rapid City. Hogs are being shipped from the state to both eastern and western markets. Buyers at Mitchell are shipping their purchases to Seattle and Tacoma, and find that the South Dakota supply is the nearest for those markets. The production of hogs has reached enormous proportions in this state, and is steadily increasing. As time passes we will witness the erection of other plants at differ ent points, until packing plants will be as numerous as creameries now are. Are You a Wember? Olir local business men's associa tion was reorganized a month ago, and a committee appointed to so licit for new members is in the field. They report some progress, but seem to find themselves "up against it" occasionally, the same as any other committee ever sent out by the association. Several business men, when approached and asked to join, have said: "Why should I joint Of what good can I be?" There are certain business men within the town that have lead in every movement—and the rest have been content to let them lead. That's all right no one is Philip Weekly Review The Review of Reviews of Stanley County" PHILIP, STANLEY COUNTY, S. D. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9. 190t. GOOD GOODS If You Want Cheap Dope We Can Get It for You—BUT WE WILL NOT CARRY IT I have built up my business on QUALITY— Not how much I can give but how GOOD Strictly Fancy and Staple Groceries at Reasonable Prices all the Time R. M. WILLIAMS The Pioneer Store kicking on that. But those leaders have been working for the better ment of Philip and every business man and property owner. They are members of the association, paying their monthly dues, and doing their share of the work, not particularly for their own profit, but for the profit of everyone of us. Thev believe in Philip and that it is possible to have a Greater Philip. Why should they do the work and pay in their money, while others set back and gather in their share of the profits resulting from the bt tterment of local business conditions? Is it morally right that you should allow them to do so? Wouldn't you be showing lip better before your brother busi ness men and neighbors, if you at least became a member of the asso ciation, and helped by your attend ance and th*1 payment of your monthly dnt*t The association is for the ad vancement of the interests of Philip and every property owner or business man. Even those who own property here, but do not re side here, should become members of the association, and may do so by corresponding with the secre tary, E. H. Banks. To those residing in Philip let us say: "When a member of the committee again asks you to be come a member, sign his list and pay over your membership fee like a little man and be sure to attend the next meeting of the as sociation." Good Roads Versus Waterways There is ever a demand from the public for better highways. In all states, in every part of the na tion, whether it is in one of the thirteen original colonies or in the newest section just ofiencd to white settlement, tke people are demand ing l)etter roads. But it is left up to the township officers, meeting three times a year, if there be such an organization, and if there is not, then the county board, elected from three to five localities, must do the road work. The good roads question is more Insistent than that of the exten sion of railroads into new sections, for highways must be had whether we have railroads or not. A young and growing city like our own finds the good roads ques tion an urgent one the question of roads is even more urgent, for they must be passable, though they may not be good. Stanley county has but recently had town ship organizations covering the greater part of the county, and the amount of poll tax, about the only source of revenue for such woi k, is of so small an amount that years must elapse before there is an ap preciable effect made on the sec tion lines. Meantime, those who must go to town or the nearest trading point, cut across country the shortest way, until some settler decides to fence and foroe them to the section line, whether passable or not it makes no difference to him—until some one does to him what he has done to some one else. Down at Washington Senator Seedgrass urges the passage of a bill appropriating $50,000 for dred ging and riprapping Squedunk 1 Skirts from $5.00 to $10.00 creek—now carrying just enough water to float a five-foot skiff—in the hoj»e that some day said creek may be available for navigation. His neighbor, back home, and his three sons, are setting on scrajers, swapping yarns, and working out their poll taxes. On the waterways known nation ally as the Mississippi river system in the last year for which a full account was made up, the total movement by freight was but nine teen million tons. We don't know how much the national government spends yearly in keeping up that waterway system, but do know that a like amount spent judicially on road work would benefit a great portion of Ye Common People.
