VOL. IV. No 39.
We would like to know if rid
ing on a monorail is anything like
sliding down a banister.
C%amp Clark, of Missouri, we
hear, would desire to follow Un
cle Joe as speaker in the house of
representatives, but adds that he
does not wish to be a czar. The
honorable gentleman is going to
get one of his wishes.
One would judge from the tone
of the insurgent organs through
out the state that they would have
been better satisfied if the stalwarts
had named a ticket in their con
ference at Huron a few days ago.
It would have borne out the in
surgent assertion that a scrap was
on in the stalwart ranks, and they
don't like the setback.
The meeting of twentylive of the
progressive faction at Huron last
Thursday evening brought out the
lines of the coming conflict more
clearly. Dick Richards was there
and over, as was Basford and Sean
and Dr. Lavery. The latter presid
ed at the meeting. Richards has
finally prevailed on the faction to
take up some of his pet theories
and will be a part of that faction
during the campaign. A general
meeting has been called to meet at
lluron on the 24th of this month,
when the progressives will draw
tlieir plans for the year, and inci
dentally frame a ticket.
An insurgent organ published
east of the river says that Con
gressman Burke was nominated by
stalwart votes from west of the
river. Congressman Martin's terri
tory. Believing that the law passed
by the last legislature which de
vides the state into two congres
sional districts will be effective
this year, it says that any good
progressive can now beat Burke
for the nomination in the First dis
trict. The referendum, however,
has been invoked on that law, and
for this year, at least, the same
conditions may be had as two
years ago.
Nothing To Go On
The latest authority on constitu
tional law is the Sioux Falls jus
tice court. Joe Kirby decided to
test the game law, so he went
hunting without a license, had him
self arrested, plead guilty to the
charge, and had one of the birds in
court to back up his plea, and the
jury acquitted him on the ground
of the unconstitutionality of the
state game law, it being held as
discriminatory becauso it exacts
one fee from the local hunter and
another fee from a hunter from
without the state. Joe wanted to
carry the case up to the supreme
court, but he hasn't got anything"
now to carry. He is trying to get
Game Wardeu Bancroft to arrest
him again and try it over. In the
mean time it is possible that a
number of cases which have been
wrestled over by the supreme
court may be appealed to the jus
tice court at Sioux Falls for ad
judication.—Arlington Sun.
Third and Last Call! Sold!
Hie political sensation of the
entire campaign occurred last
week, when Dick Richards, of
Huron, entered into a compact
with the insurgent faction by
which the latter takes up his new
fangled notions of politics as they
ought to be, in his estimation,
while he becomes the king-pin—or
the man behind—of the faction.
On the 10th day of February and
for months previously, Richards
was out and out against Vessey
and the present administration,
claiming that they were sham re
formers and that they hail not
kept their campaign pledges, and
had failed to make good. On Feb
ruary 11th he was for Vessey and
the insurgent machine and every
thing that they had been or
hoped to be. Richards is rather a
good politician, but his coat turn
ing has a mighty suspicious look.
Richards has devised a lot of so
called reform ideas, among them
being a demand for a state civil
service law, a primary election for
the selection of postmasters, a tax
direct for the support of the state
institutions to be apiortioned by
a political board, the control of all
state patronage by the state cen
tral committee, and several others
along the same line, which is
merely an attempt to create a big
political machine and Tammanyize
the state.
Vessey and Crawford have said
that Richards bolted because he
could not be boss. It is only
natural to conclude from the hap
penings at Huron last week that
concessions had been made to him
of greater import than the public
at large will ever know.
The compact has the appearance
of a genuine gold brick swindle.
It is apparent that the faction has
been sold to the highest bidder.
Elrod A Candidate
Ex-Governor Samuel H. Elrod,
of Clark has announced his candi
dacy for the republican nomina
tion for governor, following the
stalwart conference at Huron. Mr.
Elrod served one term as governor
but was defeated for the second
term through the manipulations of
the insurgent machine. His record
of administration was clean, his
policies along safe and sane lines,
and he is justly entitled to consid
eration at the hands of the voters
of the state.
The claim of that faction led by
Mr. Elrod is that for the past four
years, since his retirement, the
state has been run headlong into
debt. Our friends, the enemy,
claim that the debt incurred has
been necessary, and for the up
building of the state. A recent
statement issued by the state his
torian, in which he compares the
last four administrations, does not
bear out that statement.
There have -en heavy appro
priations for the state institutions,
and we'll grant that they have
been necessary. There has been

a host of new offices created, and
we claim that they were not neces
sary. It is costing the state too
much, under present conditions,
for administration purposes.
The Review is for the nomina
tion of Mr. El rod and those who
co-operate with him in the endorse
ment of stalwartism as promul
gated from the conference at
Representative Martin (Hives His
Views on Present Political Situa
tion at Washington
Hot Springs, S. I)., Special—
Congressman Martin stopped over
a day at his ranch near here while
on his way to Washington from
the conference of stalwart republi
cans at Huron. Regarding that
meeting he said:
"It was my view from the
beginning that no ticket should be
endorsed at Huron, ami I think
this is pretty generally known
over the state. Now that we have
a primary law, I think it should
be observed in method and spirit."
When questioned regarding his
probable candidacy to succeed him
self in congress he said:
"If I shall lx^ a candidate for re
nomination to congress., which now
seems probable, this will be
brought about by a nominating
petition as contemplated by the
primary, and in due course I will
expect to announce to the people
my position upon the pubiic
questions liefore the country at
this time.'"
Questioned regarding affairs at
Washington, Mr. Martin said:
"Congress is getting down to
business in an effort to shape the
Roosevelt-Taft policies into law.
The president's recent message on
amending the railway rate law, the
regulation of interstate corpora
tions and on conservation are in
some respects an advance over the
recommendations of his predeces
sor, and outline the purposes of
the administration on these im
portant subjects.
"It is the president's purpose
that several of those policies shall
be threshed into constructive law
at the present session, and a ma
jority of congress are of the same
mind. Railway rate amendments,
postal savings bank legislation and
conservation amendments are likely
to receive attention in about the
order named.
"The control of the large inter
state corporations either by fed
eral incorporation or federal
license, will also be thoroughly
considered at this time but the
subject is so vast and far-reaching
that it may not be possible to work
out a definite plan before adjourn
ment in May or June."
Mr. Martin spoke kindly of
Speaker Cannon as "an honest
militant, profane patriot," but
with emphasis declared that Can
non is an imiossibility so far as
the next speakership i»«concerned.
"This is recognized in Washing
ton as elsewhere," said he.

The gospel meetings which have
been in progress here for the p«st
two weeks, were brought to a close
last Sunday night. They have
been a great success and a source
of much interest and l)enefit to all
who attended. It resulted in an in
creased membership for the church
and the liquidation of the outstand
ing indebtedness that the church
had since its inception. This was
largely through the efforts of Rev.
Oscar E. Tell, who was one of the
organizers of the church 4 years
ago, and who paid down $10 s
that this might be accomplished.
Rev. Tell asked for prictically ii
compensation for his services, but
the {teople showed their apprecia
tion by subscribing a modest sum
and had it sent to him.—Midland

charge the work of registration

ings of mine?s but are proud
in gold every year.
Most of it is saved by free milling
and the cyanide process, and it is
this latter that has caused the
waters of the creek to
poisonous. By the free milling pro
cess from 65 to 70 per cent of the
gold is saved, while by the cyanide
process from 85 to IK) per cent can
be saved, and then by taking up
the cyanide solution and running
it through pipes several miles an
additional saving is had. A descrip
tion of the Homestake mills, some
3 miles above Dead wood, explains
the whole system of treating the
ore. This mill treats about 5,000
tons of ore each day. The ore is
run through the stamps and then
over quicksilver and finally through
a solution of cyanide of potassium
and zinc shavings, but not all the
gold is saved by the cyanide, and
the Homestake has laid pipes to
Dead wood, more

"After the final treatment of the
ore the cyanide is turned loose in
to Whitewood Creek. The waters
of this creek from a mile and a
half above Dead wood to its mouth
are, therefore, made unsafe for
use. It would seem at first that
this is a distinct disadvantage to
the country bordering the creek,
but it has its advantages. The creek
is the only outlet we have for our
sewerage, and the cyanide neuter
alizes this sewerage and makes it
healthy for the people of Dead
wood and other towns along the
creek. Of course, the farms on this
creek have been damaged by this
cyanide in the time of floods, be
cause where the water runs over
the land the vegetation is killed,
but the Homestake mine long ago
adopted a plan that whenever a
farm is damaged the owner is com
pensated. In this way the mine
owners have removed cause for ob
jection on the part of the farmers,
for as the Homestake employs a
great many people, the farmers

ITH the moisture we already have it looks as if crops of small
grain, and indeed all early stuff ought to mature this year with
very little rainfall. Everybody is hopeful, and we expect to see
heavy planting. You will find us prepared as usual with the
only complete assortment of Field and Garden Seeds in this sec
tion of the country. The celebrated Garden Seeds of the Sioux
City Seed & Nursery Co. still hold the lead and are as good as
ever. We have several varieties of best by test Seed Corn, both home-grown
dind from the weed house. In view of the scarcity of dependable Seed Corn this
year it is good to know where you can get good high test corn. We have a
stock of the "Kherson Seed Oats" and if you plant any oats this year be sure
to plant some of these. They are a very early heavy-yielding oat with thin shell
and solid meat, weigh heavy to the bushel highly recommended by the State
